Happy Friday to all of you! My friends at ScrapbookingStore.com contacted me recently and asked me to create a layout using their September 2018 scrapbook kit. This kit features the Beautiful Life collection by Echo Park Paper and was one I haven’t played with before. I loved the bright colors and actually ended up creating three layouts with this kit.

Now for my layouts … This first one is my favorite!

…………………………………………………………………….

TODAY LET’S TRY RED

I used white cardstock from my stash for the base of each of these layouts. For this one, I started with a band of the yellow polka dot paper across the top and then layered two rows of tickets (fussy-cut from a patterned paper) along the seam.

Lately, I’m really loving creating stacked layer photo mats on my pages. All of the different patterns and colors peeking out here-and-there makes me so happy.

Add in some flowers and I’m a happy-scrappy girl!

For the title, I used the gold Thickers from the Add-On. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the letters for the word “RED” and then popped them up with foam squares.

I then added the journaling in a column below the photos and accented the bottom of the page with a thin strip of striped patterned paper and some of the stickers.

Next, I used this kit to scrapbook a few of my daughter’s graduation memories from a couple years ago.

CLASS OF 2016

I began this page by stacking together several of the papers in rows to create a colorful backdrop for my two photos.

I then accented the photos with fussy-cut doilies, 3×4 journaling Cards, and several stickers. Again, flowers and butterflies peek out in a few places adding lots of character.

I used the gold thickers again for the title on this page. I used my Cameo to cut out the “of” from navy blue cardstock from my stash.

A couple of fussy-cut rulers anchor the photos at the bottom and top of the page are a subtle nod to the school theme.

CONGRATS!

I couldn’t resist creating a page with all of the banner stickers from the sticker sheet. They were perfect for this page with the photographs I took of the decorations we put up in our kitchen for my daughter on the day of her high school graduation.

I used the smaller heart and flower stickers popped up on foam squares to add dimension to the banner.

The flowers were all fussy-cut from another patterned paper. I used Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Drops to add dimensional flower centers to a few of them.

American Crafts: Creating a Background with DIY Shop Tape

Today I am up on the American Crafts blog sharing a fun technique for creating a page background using washi tape! The new DIY Shop collection includes the fun foiled tape rolls pictured below. The background of each of these tapes is a light kraft color with silver, gold, or copper foil patterns. They are just DREAMY!

I love the shine of the foil on these tapes and decided to use them to create a shimmery background for this layout of my kids playing with fireflies for the first time on a summer vacation five years ago.

After creating the background, I arranged the photos on top and then used several firefly themed elements from the One Canoe Two Twilight collection to fill in around them.
I used American Crafts’ Moxy Extra Fine Gold Glitter to add gold glitter accents to the wood veneer fireflies in the upper right corner of the page.

In the lower left corner of the page I added the jar and firefly die cut from the Twilight Ephemera pack. A smaller wood veneer shape accents the jar, repeating the wood material from the fireflies at the top of the page.

Finally, I fussy cut several blue flowers from a One Canoe Two Creekside patterned paper to fill in the spaces and add an outdoorsy feeling to this page.

I LOVE how this page came together! The foil tapes in the background were so much fun to use and helped to make this magical memory feel special!

Echo Park Paper: Fill’er Up, Santa! Christmas House Gift Boxes

Today I am looking ahead to Christmas (Ack! I know!) and sharing a set of Christmas House Gift Boxes on the Echo Park Paper blog using the NEW Merry & Bright collection. These would be perfect for filling with treats and trinkets this coming holiday!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Merry & Bright Christmas Houses 1 600
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out these boxes using the Cotton Tail Village SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Even though this set was meant for Spring/Easter … the house is fun to decorate for other holidays! (It would be cute as a Haunted House for Halloween, too, don’t you think?!) Just change up the paper and embellishments, and waaalaaa!
Each box is created from a mix of patterned papers. This first one features the green plaid Jolly Words paper. The lid of this box is cut from the 2×2 Journaling Cards paper and the body of the box is cut from the Merry Presents paper. The smaller patterns of the 6×6 paper pad were perfect for the roof and trim pieces. Elements from the Chipboard Accents and Sticker Sheet decorate the front of each box.

On this house, I stitched together three die cut trees (Merry Christmas Tree Die Set) to create a dimensional tree to add to the front of the house. Simply bend up the layers with your fingers after stitching together. A Chipboard Santa is waving a friendly “Hello!”

In addition to the stickers and chipboard pieces, I used green and red baker’s twine wrapped around the wreath and an enamel dot for the doorknob to add additional texture. There are even glittering gems (purchased from the Dollar Tree) lining the roofline! These are the kind of details that make projects like this so much fun to create!

Next, check out the first two layouts I created with the September kits. First, I create a double-page layout adding in items from my stash to customize the page to my own style. For the second layout, I cut up the kit components and rework them on a single page layout.
