The bright multi-colored dot paper mimics the look of a vanilla confetti cake and the pink “swirled” frosting created with the 3X4 Journaling Cards paper tops it off. Doesn’t it make your mouth water?! Adorn the candle with a ribbon bow and a tag die cut (Ephemera Pack) decorated with Element Stickers.

Echo Park Paper: Welcome Aboard the Birthday Train!

Are you looking to create a special centerpiece for a boy’s birthday? Try making this dimensional train using your electronic die cutting machine and the Echo Park Paper Happy Birthday Boy collection.
I used the Happy Birthday Boy Solids Kit to cut the base shapes of this 3D Paper Train (by My Scrap Chick) and then added decorative panels cut from the 6×6 paper pad.

The bear is playing engineer and beckoning you to hop on and join in on the fun! He’s holding a balloon … and even the front of the train is telling you that it is time to party!

Simple Stories: Chills and Thrills on Snowy Hills!

Hello! I hope you are having a great week! Today I have another snowy scrapbook page using the Simple Stories Sub Zero collection.
I am in love with the colors of this collection! They are perfect for scrapbooking my son’s love of snowboarding. His jacket just happens to be a lime green … one of the amazing accent colors that makes working with these papers so much fun!

I created a title for my page by using a circular metal die to cut out the “Chills & Thrills” wording from one of the cards of the 4×6 Vertical Elements paper. Next, I matted it with red cardstock and then built a scene around it using snowflakes, pine trees, and a car from the Bits & Pieces pack, Combo Sticker sheet, and 6×12 Chipboard sheet.

My main photo had a lot of white space around my son. I took advantage of that space by overlapping the left side of the picture with another embellishment scene using the adorable A-frame cabin and pine tree die cuts. The “Up to Snow Good” arrow phrase is so “punny” … I just couldn’t resist using it here! Ha ha! (Especially, since my son usually ditches school to go snowboarding … shhh!)

This snowboarding polar bear looks like he has quite a fun personality! He is cool as can be and somebody I know I’d love to hang out with on the slopes! *wink*

American Crafts: “You’re the Best” Card

Hello! Today I’m up on the American Crafts Blog with a Thank You Card. Let someone know how much you appreciate them by telling them they are the BEST with this card created with the Vicki Boutin All the Good Things collection.
Jana-Eubank-American-Crafts-Vicki-Boutin-All-The-Good-Things-Card-1-600
I began this card with a 5×7 textured white cardstock base. I spread a layer of white gesso over the card so that I could do a little mixed media with the Vicki Boutin Art Crayons.
Jana-Eubank-American-Crafts-Vicki-Boutin-All-The-Good-Things-Card-5-600
I used the blue and violet crayons to create a watercolor looking background by mixing the colors on a piece of plastic, wetting them with a mist of water and then “smooshing” them into the background.
I then added some flecks of black art crayon by scribbling the black crayon on the plastic again, picking up the color with a wet paint brush, and then flicking it onto the page.

I used the stamps to create a few butterflies for the card, and used the “You’re the Best” stamp as the sentiment for the card.
Jana-Eubank-American-Crafts-Vicki-Boutin-All-The-Good-Things-Card-4-600
I stamped the words several times and then cut out each individual word to scatter down the side of the mason jar die cut.

I tied the feather die cuts together to adorn the right side of the mason jar and then added floral die cuts and a floral piece fussy cut from the Blossom to Awesome paper.
Bands of patterned paper and washi tape anchor the design and the black enamel dots add a bit of sparkle while mimicking the black paint splatters on the background of the card.
