Echo Park Paper: Things I Love About Winter

We’ve been looking ahead to winter over on the Echo Park Paper Blog, and today I’m sharing a winter layout using the Celebrate Winter collection.
You all know that fall is my very favorite season, and I’ve always thought of winter as my LEAST favorite season … that is, until I stopped to document all of the things that I actually DO love about it!

A cluster of snowflakes accent the title at the top of the page. If you look close, you will even see a snowflake (punched from the Winter Wonderland Paper), peeking through the center of the letter “o.”

To make things a little more interesting, I matted my photos with two different patterned papers (Sweater Weather and Snowflake Kisses).
To the left of my photo block I used one of the 4×4 Journaling Cards as a large accent. I added a cheery, red button to the center of the snowflake on the card for dimension.

I anchored the word “winter” on a thin strip of the Build a Snowman paper below the photos. A cute snowman and cup of hot cocoa flank either side.

I used the large empty space below the photos to write all of my favorite things about winter, and you know what?! I discovered that I love the season more than I thought!

Stashbusting: Simple Stories Emoji Love

I’ve hung onto the Simple Stories Emoji Love collection because I knew the emojis would be absolutely perfect for this page about my son getting his second set of braces. He was kind enough to let my husband take this crazy picture of him in the chair with the typical goggles and crazy contraption holding his mouth open (Classic!).

My son’s braces have been off for over a year now, so it’s probably time I get these photos of my son’s journey with braces documented. *giggle*

HERE WE GO AGAIN

I love the snarky words and phrases in this collection, especially to express feelings about a situation such as this. Plus! Teenagers are just naturally snarky. Hehe!

I layered the sunglasses on top of this emoji to mimic my son with the goggles in the photo. It makes me smile every time I see it!

I used up some letter stickers from my stash for the title and then used a black journaling pen to write the journaling below.

I thought the food was a perfect accent for a page all about the journey of my son’s teeth. Ha!

Close to My Heart: This is Me Layout

I hope you are having a great week! I’m back with a page using the October Craft with Heart “Homegrown” kit. (Click here to find out more information about the Craft with Heart subscription kit, or contact your Close to My Heart consultant.)

I decided to create a single page layout with my supplies to document how I transitioned when my daughter went away to college. (Butterflies always make great page accents on layouts about learning and growing … Don’t you think?!)

THIS IS ME

Jana Eubank Close To My Heart Craft with Heart October 2018 This is Me 1 600

I used the left page of one of the two page layouts for the base of my page. The strips criss-crossing the page were already printed on the paper, I simply added stitching using my sewing machine and black thread.

The used the gold grid scalloped die cut to house my photo, and then added the gray 4×6 journaling card behind the yellow grid paper as an additional paper layer.

I then combined the flowers and butterflies from both of the layout kits onto this page in a diagonal line across the design.

The title stickers for this page were “This is Us.” I ommitted the word “us” and added the word “Me” using chipboard letters from my stash (these are some oldies-but-goodies by BasicGrey).

For additional dimension, I added layered punched flowers and buttons on top of the flower die cuts.

The page had black spray mist already printed on the background paper, but I added more mist in a light gray along the diagonal line of butterflies and flowers to tie everything together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

WILL DO TRICKS FOR TREATS

I fussy-cut the big spider from the cut-apart sheet and then added a few die cut spiderwebs using a metal die from my stash.

I also fussy-cut the witch from the cut-apart cards and used her to accent the title block.

I clustered several stickers here to accent the bottom right corner of the photos and add my date.

The solid black pinstripe paper made the perfect background!

BOOTIFUL

This next page features my daughter in her Gypsy costume!

I used the cream pinstripe background for this page. I also pulled the Carta Bella Give Thanks & Leaves Die Set from my stash to cut several leaves as page accents.

A cluster of three circular elements in different sizes accent the left side of the page. The pumpkin circle was punched from the cut-apart sheet, while the other two circles came from the sticker sheet.

I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut the title for the page (Bootiful Day by Lilium Pixel SVG #274167). I used a stamp from my stash to create the circular journal block and then added texture to the bottom edge of the photo block with a notebook paper border punch.

The final magical touch I used black gems from my stash in a few places around the page.
