Echo Park Paper: Wedding Gazebo Gift Box

I love a beautiful outdoor wedding in the summertime! Create a crisp, white gazebo adorned with flowers to collect wedding cards at your next wedding celebration … or maybe even use this as a special gift box! The Echo Park Paper Wedding Bliss collection is perfect for this!

I created the box using the Carta Bella Paper Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock and the gorgeous papers from the Wedding Bliss collection. I cut the Gazebo Cut File (Winter Gazebo by SVGCuts.com) using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine.

I wanted the top of the gazebo to really catch your eye, so I used the Wedding Floral Paper with its beautiful gold foil accents. I added detail to the edges by embossing white cardstock with the Dainty Damask embossing folder.
Next, I created some big, beautiful flowers  and a Mini Paper Fan to use as a focal point on the roof. The flowers were cut using the Rose Flower – Small Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #193699 in the Silhouette Design Store). The leaves are from the Flower Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #192286 in the Silhouette Design Store).
I tucked in a couple of tags from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack for even more interest.

For the windows I used the Easter Vellum Dot Paper in Blush Bunny. I adhered it “inside out” so that the dots were a more subtle pink. I fussy-cut the banners from the Forever and Always Paper to form a swag all the way around the gazebo, adding in a couple of lengths of pearl strands for more dimension.
I punched the flowers from the Lt. Pink/Pink Coordinating Solid paper and then added enamel dots for the flower centers.

The box opens up so that you can place electronic lights inside, if you would like. Here you can see the vellum adhered to the inside of the box with the pattern facing inwards.

I added the “Bride & Groom” sticker and heart stickers to the doorway. Look how cute it looks all lit up in the dark!

On the bottom portion of the box, I created another cluster of embellishments with more die cut leaves and two more Mini Paper Fans. I added a couple of enamel dots to the center of one of the paper fans for a bit of shine. I added the “I Do” sticker to the center of the other one.

Another great use for this project would be to use it as a centerpiece of a table; either at a wedding, on a small table along with the guest book, or maybe as a fun decoration for a bridal shower. There are so many possibilities!

Echo Park Paper: Best Dad

This past week I have been off on a camping trip with my family, but this page was featured on the Echo Park Paper blog last week as we all created a project to celebrate dads! It only seemed fitting that I made a page about how much I appreciate all that my husband does and is for our family. He truly is the BEST dad!

For this page, I pulled out the Grandson Mini Theme and a gorgeous sheet of Chestnut Brown Linen Designer Cardstock by Carta Bella Paper. I am not a grandmother yet, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t use this collection. I LOVE the patterns in this mini theme … the combination of the plaid with the woodgrain and bright colors is fantastic! I simply chose the elements from the collection that would work for my page and covered up any words that didn’t apply.

In the top corner of the page, I made a little cluster of word stickers. I love the phrase “So there’s this boy…” because it reminds me of how I used to talk about my husband when we were dating. Hehe! He is the boy that captured my heart and has kept it all of these years!

I cut out the orange hexagon shape from one of the journaling cards to use as a frame for my title. The title was cut on my electronic cutting machine. I then used the tag stickers and a couple of punched woodgrain stars around the title for a bit more pizazz.

More punched stars and buttons are sprinkled above the tags, framing and drawing your attention to the journaling strips.

To balance the color going on around the page, I also layered and grouped together a few of the solid stickers in the upper right corner of my photo.
What is it that you appreciate about the men in your life? I challenge you to take some time to record those sentiments on your next scrapbook page.

Queen & Company: Birthday Boy

Happy Friday, Friends! Today I have another scrapbook page to share created with the June “Pretty Presents” kit by Queen and Company.

I have so many birthday pages to catch up on, so you can bet that the June Kit is getting a lot of use from me. The problem, for me, is that not all of my birthday event photos are the most beautiful technically. They are usually dark or slightly blurry due to the fact that I am snapping them early in the morning, late at night, or in a hurry. I’m so thankful for happy, bright, and cute birthday products that help to convey the fun of the day. You can see what I mean by checking out the page below.

BIRTHDAY BOY
Jana Eubank Queen and Company Birthday Boy 1 600
Our kids always choose a place to go for their birthday dinner. Without fail, my son always chooses a family fun center … because of the two-for-one factor: dinner and arcade games! The problem is that it is always dark inside of these types of establishments.

I chose to focus on the bright, primary colors of the kit with a red/blue/green/yellow color scheme. I used the 6×6 paper pad to create a color blocked page design and then added the shaker presents to two of the blocks as accents.
I also used one of the stamps to add a phrase banner above the bottom present.

I created shakers from the two larger present shapes, and then chose to place a solid piece of paper on top of the small present shape for a flat die cut embellishment. I love the confetti feel of the shaker presents! They really help to add a celebratory flair to this page!
Jana Eubank Queen and Company Birthday Boy 4 600
I used a large circle punch and the 6×6 paper pad to add a trio of circles, around the three areas of embellishment on this page: the title. the journaling, and the accent square. This keeps your eye moving around the page.
I really loved the way these papers brightened up my otherwise dark and dull birthday photos. It helped to punch up the design and memorialize my son’s special day.

Simple Stories: Heading into Summer with Emoji Love and Summer Days

The kids are out of school and the iconic question that goes “Mooom, what are we going to do today?” has already begun in our household. Haha! I don’t know about you, but even though I love summer, when it’s especially hot outside I think I’d rather stay in with the air conditioning and play with my scrapbook supplies!
Today I have a couple of layouts to share with you featuring the bright and happy colors of summer. This first on uses the Emoji Love collection.
WOW! WHAT A FUN DAY
All of my four kids birthdays are in the summer. My oldest daughter has taken it upon herself to start a new tradition with her siblings by taking each one of them out for a special outing to celebrate their birthday. On this day she took her youngest sister to lunch and to do a little bit of shopping.

While they were out together they took lots of selfies of their adventure … which, of course, always includes silly faces! These are the kind of shots that are perfect to use with this darling collection!

I used the two speech bubble die cuts, “Love” and “Yay!” above this photo … my daughter had picked up a pack of Pokemon cards while they were at Target and had scored a very RARE card. This is the celebratory selfie shot from that moment. Haha!

I used the striped Be a Unicorn paper to mat the largest photo, and then used the solid color 3×4 cards from the 3×4 Journaling Card Elements paper to mat the two smaller photos. I placed the two smaller photos on either side of the larger main photo and then layered up lots of delicious patterned papers behind them: the Choose Happy Paper, Yay Paper, Ha Ha Paper, and Be a Unicorn Paper (script). I tilted each of the layers differently for a bit of fun.
In the upper right corner I added a winky face die cut, a epoxy metal clip, a sticker from the 4×6 stickers, and a few enamel dots.

I cut out the script “Wow!” word from one of the 4×6 cards from the SN@P! pack for the first part of my title. For the second part, I used the pink letter stickers from the 4×6 sticker pack. The nail polish bottle die cut to the left of the title is a nod to the shopping they did on this day.

What kid doesn’t spend many of their summer days riding their bike around the neighborhood with their friends?!
ENJOY THE RIDE
I gotta tell you … every time I flip through the Summer Days collection I just get a smile on my face. I love this collection so much! I couldn’t wait to play with it on this next layout!

First, I matted my photos with the diagonal stripe of the Sunny Days Paper and then adhered the them to the sweet yellow floral Hello Sunshine Paper. This floral has my heart. It was the perfect backdrop for these photos of my daughter on her bike.
I accented the top of the photos in the upper right corner with a bit of the striped Good Vibes Washi Tape and a couple of die cuts. The “Big Smiles” sticker is from the phrase stickers on the Combo Sticker Sheet.

I wanted to build a little scene in the bottom left corner of my photo strip. The sun looks like it is rising up over beach bus, beckoning you to come outside and play for the day!

I created my title on my electronic die cutting machine. I backed the openings of the letters with the pink chevron Summer Snapshots paper to tie it in with the same paper at the top of the page. A flamingo die cut and pinwheel stickers flank either side of the title … and then a phrase sticker from the 4×6 stickers at the bottom of the title reminds you that it is definitely a beautiful day to get out and play in the sun!

I used a strip of the diagonal striped Sunny Days Paper to tie in with the photo mats at the top of the page and give the title and accents a place to rest.
