Echo Park Paper: Mermaid Party!

Jana Eubank Lets Be Mermaids Group Photo 2_600
It’s August! And at our house that means it’s time for birthday parties! All of my kids were born during the summer, which means I morph into full party-planning mode during this time of year.
Echo Park’s paper collections are perfect for making your party unique. I couldn’t resist planning an adorable Mermaid party for my daughter using the Let’s Be Mermaids collection … because, let’s face it … being a mermaid is every little girl’s dream!
I used my Silhoeutte Cameo electronic die cutting machine to create everything you see here! A mermaid sandcastle centerpiece, ocean shaker favor boxes, and a crown and wand for the special birthday mermaid!

I created the castle using the castle cut file from the Bedtime Stories SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Decorating the castle was my favorite part! I had so much fun adding all of the little characters around every side of the sandcastle!

I even decorated the sides and back! It’s important for your centerpiece to look lovely from all sides, not just the front, right?!😀

The birthday girl will feel so special wearing a crown and carrying a wand adorned with starfish cut outs.
(Crown created with the Lettering Delights Classic Princess Crown Cut Project found HERE. Starfish wand created with the Echo Park Paper Starfish Image #41495 in the Silhouette Design Store.)

Every crown needs a touch of sparkle! The glitter Enamel Dots work perfectly here.

The wand looks extra sweet adorned with a paper bow made with the Mini 3D Bow Die Set.

I always like to give our guests something extra special to take home. I created these Ocean Shaker Favor Boxes with a little aquarium scene inside the lid.

The fish were created with the Fish Die Set #2 dies that coordinate with the Let’s Be Mermaids collection. I popped them up on foam squares to give the ocean scene a little more depth. A sprinkling of aqua sequins look like underwater bubbles. So fun!

I love to throw parties! And I hope this has inspired you to think outside the box and use your supplies to make your next celebration unique.

Carta Bella Paper: Autumn Cuckoo Clock

Jana Eubank Autumn Cuckoo Clock Photo 4 600
One of my favorite seasons to decorate for is Autumn. I love the rich, warm colors and all of the cozy textures! It’s only natural that the Carta Bella Autumn collection has become a fast-favorite of mine! Today I am sharing a Cuckoo Clock I created with this adorable collection. I plan on displaying it in our mudroom on a shelf above our coat hooks. It’s going to look so cute!
CUCKOO CLOCK

The cut the structure of the cuckoo clock house from the Fall Stitching and Harvest Season papers. I love how these two patterns compliment each other and embody all the warmth and coziness of the season with the cross-stitched letters and leaves.

The roof is a layering of the Fall Forest check pattern and the sweet floral pattern of the Autumn Stroll papers. I bent up the shingles slightly for even more texture.

The front of the clock is decorated with the adorable scenes from the Element Stickers. The clock face is an Echo Park Print & Cut image found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #32380). There are also several more to choose from if you are looking for something in a different color or style, and really helped this project come to life!

Every time I look at this project, I will remember not to take a single minute of Fall for granted. It’s my favorite time of year and I want to enjoy every second!

Noel Mignon: Cutest Kids on the Block

Jana Eubank Noel Mignon Cutest Kids 2

Oh, my! Just look at those cute little faces of my kids from 9 years ago! I can’t believe how grown up they are now. I’m feeling nostalgic this week as I send my oldest off to college, and my son off to high school. Where has all the time gone?!

CUTEST KIDS ON THE BLOCK

I created this page using the goodies from the Noel Mignon Vintage Charm Kits.

At the top of the page, I placed a couple of strips of the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow papers, accented with some fun zig-zag stitching, and a little cluster that includes some punched hearts.

The house paper was the inspiration for my page title … Yes, I really do believe I have the cutest kids on the block!😀

The sun and cloud were actually cut from one of the Simple Stories 4×6 journal cards included in the Vintage Charm Daily Diary kit.

I made my own journal card using patterned paper scraps. I zig-zag stitched the two pieces together and then added some stickers from the WRMK Honey I’m Home collection.

POCKET PAGE

The Simple Stories Bloom & Grow cards on this pocket page spread just make me smile. I love how happy and cheerful the designs are in the Simple Stories collections … this company will forever be a favorite of mine!

I outlined a couple of the 3×4 journal cards to give them more definition. The dark photos were overpowering them … so the dark outline helps them to stay balanced.

Noel Mignon: Family Time

This week on the Noel Mignon blog we are sharing pages about our favorite ways to spend time with our family.

I love summer time with my family! I love the relaxed schedule and all of the different activities we do together. This particular pocket page spread includes a lot of those summer traditions … like parades, picnics, concerts, and backyard croquet. These are just some of the things we like to do together!

FAMILY TIME

I worked with the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow elements from the Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit on this layout. I’ve mentioned it before, but I just love the primary colors mixed together with the warmth of the woodgrain.

I pulled in the kraft Prima flowers from the Vintage Charm Classic Kit to use her to continue the neutral brown colors.

I love using the letter stickers, die cuts, and epoxy brads to decorate each of the journal cards!
