First off, set the stage by decorating your mantle, front door, or stair rail with a fun banner. Here are a few shots of the details.

Next, set each place setting in a special way. I found these green plates and mugs at the Dollar Tree. With a place mat, doilie, decorated mug and napkin ring … anything can be special … even paper plates!

Decorate each plate with a little paper house. Put a treat or a battery-operated tea light inside … or both!

Place a row of mason jar snowglobes down the center of the table for a wintry feel!

Or how about this cute, stacked snowman?

The kids at the kids table deserve a fancy treat, too!

These character canister boxes would look cute sitting on a shelf, or adorning the table.

Last year, as I was shopping for Christmas presents, I stumbled across these adorable Espari dolls. I couldn’t get over how much they looked like my daughter and my niece. These two cousins are the best of friends … and so I thought it would be fun to give them the doppelganger doll of one another as a token of their friendship. They loved them!

I have been dying to use these poinsettia stamps by Stampin’ Up on a project … so I pulled them out to use on my first page with the Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits. (There are still a few left in Noel’s shop if you are interested in checking them out. The Oh, What Fun Classic Kit is HERE, and the Daily Diary Kit is HERE. )

My title was created using my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine. I cut it out twice using red and white cardstock so that I could create an offset shadow for the word.

Around the title I placed those adorable mini acrylic stars by Pretty Little Studio. They were included in the Classic Kit this month along with several script words. I used one of the words to accent the bottom left photo on this page.

My photos are stacked on top of each other with a red cardstock mat. I placed a few more 6×6 paper layers behind. I just love those mini patterns!

Here is a closer look at the stamped poinsettias I made using the Reason for the Season stamp set by Stampin’ Up. I stamped the outline in black ink. The stamp set comes with shadow stamps that make the leaves and the petals look shaded. I stamped them in red and green ink, and then used colored pencils in slightly different shades to finish filling them in. I love how they turned out!

Stashbusting: Creating Christmas Tags

jana-eubank-christmas-tags-group-7-600

Hi Friends! Do you love shopping for Christmas scrapbooking products? I know I do! And even though I have quite the collection to my name, I can’t help but pick up a few new things each year.

The problem is, my rate of acquiring scrapbook Christmas supplies, doesn’t quite match up with my Christmas creating output … and so they accumulate.

I have a hard time getting rid of them, because Christmas is just so classic! Christmas doesn’t go out of style … and I know one day, somewhere, somehow, I *WILL* put them to use!

This year, I made a goal to use up those older supplies, and one of the ways I am doing it is by creating Christmas Tags.

Here’s a video with more details explaining my process.

Pop in a Christmas movie and give it a try! Let’s join forces and flood the earth with cute, custom-made Christmas tags and put our stash to good use.

Happy creating!

Echo Park Paper: Christmas Ornament with Deck the Halls

jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-6-600
The first thing I want to do when decorating my home for the holidays is put up the Christmas tree! The twinkling lights and glittering ornaments immediately put me in the mood for the Christmas season.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-1-600
For my ornament today, I am using the Deck the Halls collection. I love the gold foil accents included throughout … and thought it would be perfect for catching the light and adding a bit of shimmer to our tree.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-3-600
First, I created a frame ornament base using the Festive Plaid Paper, with it’s shimmering gold foil lines, for the outer frame. The blue snowy background of the Border Strips Paper is the perfect backdrop for the Christmas tree sticker from the Element Sticker sheet.
I cut the frame ornament using my Silhouette Cameo machine and a cut file from the Spirits of Christmas Past SVG Kit by SVGCuts.com.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-2-600
On top of the tree, I placed the “Merry” chipboard sticker. Below the tree the “Tis’ the Season” chipboard sticker, accented with a holly sticker, gives the tree something to rest on.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-5-600
My favorite part of this ornament has got to be the floral cluster at the top. I die cut several holly leaves (Floral Holly Die Set) from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock to place behind the chipboard sticker. The lighter green berry sprigs were created using the Autumn Leaves Die Set and the green side of the Festive Plaid Paper.

For more dimension, I used the Floral Holly Die Set again to cut a couple of poinsettia flowers from Scarlet Red Designer Cardstock. The center of the flower gets a little sparkle and shine with the glittery gold enamel dots.

I can’t wait to place this ornament on my Christmas tree this year! It’s the perfect little vignette of what I love about the season … a glittering Christmas tree against softly falling snow.
