HSN Recap

Goodness! Where have the last two weeks gone?! We had a wonderful whirlwind of a trip to HSN and then when I got home, I got sick. I guess those 24-hour craft days combined with a crazy traveling schedule took it’s toll on me.

HSN was a blast! As always! I love going there. We always have a great time. Everyone is so nice there and the products did really well! It was so fun to watch Lisa present the Holiday Nifty Gifties I designed. Thank you to everyone who bought one! I hope you are receiving them and love them as much as I do! Please share what you make! I’d love to see!

Here’s a picture of Jennifer Duncan and I setting up tables at HSN. This was about 2 am, so we were a bit goofy!

Here’s another one of me, Lisa, and Brad Brusa (from Craftwell). Love these two so much! They are so much fun to work with!

I’ve been enjoying fall with my family and have been helping my daughter get ready for her first dance this coming weekend. She asked her date out by leaving a fake pumpkin on his porch filled with about 2000 tootsie rolls. He had to open all of the tootsie rolls to find the letters of her name (numbered, so they were easier to unscramble).

We used black vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo machine to add a face to the pumpkin and then this is the poem that she wrote to go with it.

I haven’t done much scrapping since I got back from HSN, but I do have a layout to share that I did awhile ago. I have a special place in my heart for daily deal sites, especially ScrapbookSteals.com. :) I bought the WRMK Jet Set collection and scrapped this two-pager using a Scrapbook Generation sketch as a starting point. I chose the green cardstock background to pick up the green color of the river in the photos.

I can’t believe how fast the kids are growing up … they look so little here and this was only three years ago! Time is flying!

I pulled out some letters from my stash and used orange microbeads to add texture to the word “windy”.

No, this bridge isn’t really called Windy Bottom Bridge … we just named it that because the public restrooms were porta-potty style and they were configured in such a way (I don’t quite understand it) where they vented outside to the canyon below … or something to that effect. It made for a very, windy bottom experience and was quite terrifying … you felt like you were going to be sucked into the canyon. YIKES! Okay … more info than you probably wanted to know … but if you ever visit Navajo Bridge (near Glen Canyon in Arizona), beware of the restrooms! It’s a strange experience.

I added some yellow enamel dots from my stash here-and-there, and a bit of washi tape from an older American Crafts Halloween collection.

Thanks for popping by! I hope you have a beautiful fall week! Enjoy the last few weeks of October! It’s my FAVORITE time of year and it passes too quickly!

Talk to you again soon!

Patterned Paper!

***Scroll down to the post below this one for the Holiday Nifty Gifties Giveaway … Entries open until Sunday, October 6th!***

Next Tuesday, October 7th, I will be in Florida with Lisa Bearnson helping out with her shows for 24-hour craft day. Do you plan on watching? I love 24-hour craft days. Back in the day, my mom, sister, and I would get together to scrapbook and watch all day long. It was so much fun!

This next product, Inspired Inc. Pocket Template Tool & Paper Kit, is another favorite of mine. This kit includes 64 sheets of patterned paper in a rainbow of colors, a cutting mat, craft knife, and a photo template. The papers are beautiful! I love all the various patterns in the rich bright colors. I had a blast mixing them together … like picking paint from a palette … a little of this a little of that. :)

Here’s a peek at the papers in the kit (you will receive at least two of each pattern, making it perfect for those of you who like to scrapbook double-pagers.)

More Pocket Cards on Traditional Pages

The weekend is here! Do you have anything fun planned? Are you planning on doing any scrapping? I am! I’m also hoping to convince the family to go on a fall picnic in the mountains … crossing my fingers they’ll all be up for it! The leaves haven’t started to change on the trees in town, but every night on the news viewers are sending in pictures of the gorgeous views up in the mountains. It’s making me itch to get up there and enjoy it! :)

But before I break for the weekend, I thought I would share with you a couple more block-style scrapbook page designs using the All-Occasion Title Card Scrapbooking set.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Halloween1_600

One thing I never purge are my holiday papers and embellishments. They always mix together so wonderfully! Here, I used the All-Occasion Title Cards to add new life to an older collection that was hanging out in my stash.

In the top right corner of my page, I used one of the dimensional cards as is (I really liked all of the Halloween words and the fact that some of the words were already popped up on the card). Next. I cut out the green “Happy Halloween 31″ banner from another card, wrapped twine around the top, and then added a strip of black polka dot paper so that its height would “match up” with the other card. The spider dangling from the upper left corner was cut from yet another card.

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Halloween2_600

At the bottom, I used a horizontal 3×4 card for my  journal block. The photo on the right needed a little something, so I trimmed the “Spooktacular” word strip from another card, added it to the bottom,accenting it with a flair badge.

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Halloween3_600

 FAMILY IS THE BEST GIFT

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Christmas1_600

More 3×4 cards get stacked on top of each other to the right of the focal photo. I decided to cut out the “Ho! Ho! Ho” words from another card and add it to the journal card. A bit of pen-stitching and embellishments accent the Title card.

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Christmas2_600

I cut the “Merry Christmas” words from the same card as the “Ho! Ho! Ho!” word strip, notched the ends and placed it at the bottom of the page to accent the three smaller photos.

Thanks so much for coming by today! I hope you have a great weekend!

More Fun with the eBrush!

This Wednesday is Craft Day at HSN and I will be there in the background with Lisa Bearnson to help with her shows. If you’d like to tune in here are Lisa’s showtimes.

lisa hsn blog JUNE230

Last month Lisa debuted the Craftwell eBrush Airbrush machine on HSN. Thanks to all of you it sold out! But it will be back again this Wednesday. If you didn’t catch it the first time and would like to see what it’s all about be sure to tune in! I’ve shared a few of my projects with you HERE and HERE using the eBrush machine. Here are some more things I created.

First, a few paper projects.

ENJOY

I created the sunset background for this card by using scraps of paper as masks. First, I cut a wavy border and sprayed tan along the bottom for the sand. I flipped the wavy strip over to cover the sand and then sprayed the top left corner of the card with yellow. Next, I used a punch circle as a mask for the sun by placing it over the yellow mist I just put down. Then, I used orange, pink and purple sprayed in concentric circles out from the sun mask, softly blending the colors into one another (I hope I’m making sense here). It was so much fun to do! Everything else on this card was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo machine with black glitter cardstock. Then, I finished it all off with a few metal flower embellishments from a past Basic Grey collection.

I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU

On this page, I used the eBrush to mist each of the hearts, giving them a dimensional look by holding the eBrush closer to the hearts along the edges.

 

JanaEubank_eBrush_EyesOnly1_600

JanaEubank_eBrush_EyesOnly2_600

I also used the eBrush to dress up the word “EYES” in the title and the hearts in the middle of the glasses.

 

JanaEubank_eBrush_EyesOnly3_600

 

Next up is a bunch of fabric projects! And no, the permanent markers I used to spray do not wash out. The eBrush comes with 6 different adaptors for popular markers you have in your stash. For the ones that didn’t fit exactly, I just used a bit of masking tape or washi tape around the barrel of the pen to make it fit. Hehe! (Hint, Hint: You can buy an AWESOME set of knock-off Sharpie pens in 24 colors for $12 at Walgreens … PERFECT for projects like these!)

Here are some fun projects I created for babies … onesies and bibs! Awwww! So cute!

I found this butterfly clip made out of feathers at Michaels’ and had fun spraying it up with the eBrush.

JanaEubank_eBrush_FeatherButterflyClip_600

Look how cute it looks pinned to this little canvas bag (striped sprayed with the eBrush).

JanaEubank_eBrush_ButterflyBag_600

Here is another mini canvas bag that I turned into  a gift for teacher.

JanaEubank_eBrushFabric_TeacherGift_600

Speaking of gifts, here are a couple of fun gift packaging ideas.

BUTTERFLY BAG

I sprayed a plain white gift bag in a variegated rainbow. Then I cut out the flower and butterflies using my Silhouette Cameo machine. The center of the flower looks more realistic with a spray of yellow in the flower center.

JanaEubank_eBrush_RainbowGiftBag1_600

Here is another paper flower.

JanaEubank_eBrush_Flowers_600

 

FLORAL GIFT BOX

I used the eBrush to create an ombre effect on the sides of this gift box, and then sprayed the edges of my paper flower (created with the Silhouette Cameo machine).

How about some home decor projects?

JanaEubank_eBrush_HSNLettersWhite1_600

 

NOEL CANVAS

This project was inspired by THIS beautifully airbrushed cake that I found through Pinterest. I can’t wait to set this on my table in my entry way this Christmas!

JanaEubank_eBrush_NoelCanvas1_600

JanaEubank_eBrush_NoelCanvas2_600

One of the coolest things you can do with the eBrush machine is to use food safe marker pens! Again, depending on the brand you buy, you may have to tape up the barrel of the pen to get it to fit snug in one of the adaptors, but the Wilton pens fit great in the Sharpie attachment (if I’m remembering correctly). Here are some fun food items (smooth surfaces work best) I made with the food color pens! Now, I am not a food crafter, but I can know I will definitely be using this machine once in awhile for birthdays, etc. So FUN!

FLOWER COOKIES

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out the mask for this flower using THIS design from the Silhouette Cameo store. I simply hid the sections for each color so I could spray the leaves by them selves, the flower, and then the entire flower (so I could cover it and do the blue background).

A simple heart on a cupcake for Valentine’s Day.

JanaEubank_eBrush_HeartCupcake_600

Or use your Silhouette Cameo machine to trace a logo or custom image. I used light blue for the entire logo and then gave the appearance of a darker blue around the edges, by misting the edges with a purple food marker.

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_CookiesHSNLogo1Group_600

 

You can even add color to the white writing of a premade cake from the bakery.

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_HappyBirthdayCakeWithMarkers_600

 

These cupcakes get a rainbow effect. The HSN letters a sprayed onto Necco candy wafers. using a letter mask created on my Cameo machine.

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_HSNRainbowCupcakes_600

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_RainbowCupcake2Single_600

 

Here is the same idea using Valentine colors of pink and red. Again, the hearts were sprayed onto Necco Candy Wafers using the negative shape of a heart cut in cardstock as a mask (punches are perfectly sized for this).

I hope you enjoyed seeing what you can make using the NEW eBrush from Craftwell. Be sure to watch Lisa on HSN this Wednesday for a live demonstration of this fun machine!
