Echo Park Paper: Craft Night

On Monday, I shared a two-page layout with you using the I’d Rather Be Crafting collection by Echo Park Paper. While I had all of those delicious papers out on my desk, I kept right on working with them and created the layout I am going to share with you today!

CRAFT NIGHT

My daughters and their cousins are always begging to get together. They live three hours away from each other, and so anytime we can plan a night with them, it’s a BLAST! This time we had a Craft Night.

I took them all to Michael’s Craft Store, then gave each of them $5 to spend on whatever they wanted. It was so cute to see them hem and haw over what to pick. Each one of them picked out a few things, along with a glass mug that they brought home and decorated with washi tape from my stash. They had so much fun!

I used some Jillibean Alpha letters for the title that I picked up at Tuesday Morning awhile back. I then pulled out my old CuttleKids heart dies (ProvoCraft) and added several around the page design.

I guess I was in an old-school-tool mood because I even used some old patterned scissors to mat the circle on this page! Ha!

A page about crafting just isn’t complete without a cute button tied with some twine. šŸ™‚

Do any of your family members like to craft? Why not get together with all of them and have a craft night?!

See you again soon!

Echo Park Paper: Baby Boy Bottle Box and Baby Shoes

It’s been a long time since we have had a baby in our home, and that makes creating baby projects extra fun! Especially, using the NEWĀ Sweet Baby Boy collection! Today’s project is a fun baby bottle gift box with matching 3D paper shoes.
Use the bottle to hold a gift card or small gift and add some candy (every new mom needs chocolate, right?!) to the accompanying baby shoes! I think they would look so cute packaged together in a cellophane bag tied with a pretty ribbon! You could even use this set as decor for a baby shower. Let’s take a closer look!

I created the baby shoes using a cut file that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (Baby Sneaker by Daniela Moscone). The cut file includes one shoe. To create the pair of shoes, I simply copied all of the pieces and then reversed them in the Silhouette Design Software using the Object>Mirror>Flip Horizontally command.
After assembling the shoe, I laced them up with some teal baker’s twine and attached theĀ “Baby Boy” tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack.

This bottle box by SVGCuts.com is very easy to put together. I used foam squares to give the decorative panels and the label on the front dimension.
I used a variety of Echo Park Paper dies to create the label. The base of the shape was created using theĀ Stitched Label Nesting Die. I matted this on solid yellow paper (6×6 paper pad) and then used the cloud from theĀ Spring Weather Die SetĀ to create a place for the stork sticker (Element Stickers) to stand on. The “Cute as a Button” die cut is also from theĀ Frames & Tags Ephemera pack.
Finally, I used theĀ Big Sky Saloon Alphabet Die SetĀ to add the word “Baby.” Try adding the name of the baby here, too!

I hope you enjoyed these sweet baby projects and found some inspiration to create a project for the new baby in your life.

Two-Page PageMaps Sketch: Scrap Retreat

This month I am the Guest Designer at PageMaps and today I have another page that I created using the February 2018 Double Page Sketch.

SCRAP RETREAT

I used the Echo Park Paper I’d Rather Be Crafting collection. I LOVE the colors in this collection! They are “so Jana!” (Infact, you may notice that they coordinate with the colors of my blog! Haha!)

A couple of years ago, my friend, Lori Allred, wanted to celebrate her birthday in a fun way … so she gathered together several crafty friends for a creative weekend scrap retreat. It was soooo much fun! My roommate was Amy Mitchell, my gal pal from when I used to work at Cricut. It was so much fun catching up with her!

We stayed at a home in my favorite Utah city, and spent the weekend laughing, eating good food, and creating a little bit in between.

I used metal dies to create the flowers using the I’d Rather Be Crafting Solid papers. I used some red enamel brads (My Mind’s Eye) and aqua glitter buttons (American Crafts) from my stash to dress up the flower centers. I LOVE making paper flowers)

How cute are the icons in this collection?! I couldn’t resist creating a little grouping with the typewriter, ATG glue gun, and a trusty, yellow pencil (my favorite are the Ticonderoga brand).

While we were at the retreat, we had a painting party! I haven’t painted since my art classes in college, so that was a lot of fun to try again!

How often do you get together with your crafty friends for a night of fun? This has reminded me that I don’t do it enough! I need to plan something soon! Want to come over? *wink*

Christmas Catchup: Part 2 of 2

Happy Sunday, friends! I’m back with part 2 of my Christmas Catchup post.

Yesterday, I mentioned that I am never able to get very much holiday scrapping done during the holidays … because let’s face it … there are a gazillion other things going on that month! LOL!

So, in an effort to not keep falling behind I made a goal with myself to do as much as possible this year, as I could steal a minute or two.

Yesterday, I shared with you three double-page layouts that I created this season … and today I have two single page layouts. One created with a brand new collection from this year (Carta Bella Paper’s A Very Merry Christmas collection) and another one using up items from my stash!

Here we go!

TINSEL RAIN

I do not use tinsel on our Christmas trees, but I couldn’t resist using that cute typography on this page as a title! It’s just so vintage and wonderful … like EVERYTHING in the amazing Carta Bella Paper A Very Merry Christmas collection.

I mean, look at these ornaments!!! Do they not just capture your heart right off the bat and take you to yesteryear?! LOVE them!

The starting point for this page, is that darling Santa cut from the Santa’s List paper. I had initially cut him out for another project where I scored the right side of him. I scored him in the wrong place and had to use another sheet for that other project, but I couldn’t let that cute Santa go to waste … so I decided I needed to add him to a page.

The dies that Echo Park/Carta Bella create are outstanding and I love to use them on my projects every chance that I get! I mean … look at the cute detail of the layer with the holly vein for the leaves! I used the Evergreen Shimmer cardstock along with the Classic Green Felt and Scarlet Red Felt Designer cardstocks to create this little cluster.

BELIEVE

I loved creating this next layout … it was just one of those that flowed as I sifted through several bits that I had leftover from a Noel Mignon Christmas kit from a few years back. I combined those bits with some “oldies, but goodies” still in my stash … and just had fun creating!

My girls are so tiny in these pictures. They had just gotten out of the bath and were all snuggly in their jammies and fuzzy robes. A Christmas show was on TV and the two little sisters cuddled up together in the chair to watch. It still warms my heart to look at these pictures and takes me right back to that cozy night!

Loving the look of all of the patterned papers stacked up together here with just a little bit from each one peeking out. … And how cute is that deer die cut from Pretty Little Studio! I love vintage artwork like that!
