Carta Bella Paper: Growing Up Together with a Process Video

Last year I took a few shots of my kids dressed in their Sunday best on Easter morning. The clothes they were wearing that day weren’t the typical frilly, pastel colors of the season, so I have been on the lookout for a collection that would really enhance these photos.
The Carta Bella Our Family collection fit the bill! The flowers and butterflies hint to spring, while the rich colors coordinate perfectly with the colors of my photos.

See how I created this page in the Process Video below!
One of my very favorite techniques to use when scrapbooking is fussy-cutting designs from patterned papers. I used a pair of fine-tipped scissors to cut out several butterflies from the Home Sweet Home paper. I added punched circles and wood buttons tied with cream twine to the center of each one and then popped them up on foam squares to use as accents. I love the way they add movement to this page.

Another butterfly accompanies the die cut tag at the bottom of the page. The space at the top of the tag was the perfect place to stamp the date. I added a floral sticker coming out from behind the tag and butterfly for even more interest.

I love all of the family quotes and sentiments included as a part of the Our Family collection. They warm my heart. The “Growing Up Together” die cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack was the perfect saying to use for a title on this page. I added the large floral sticker behind the die cut to call more attention to it and to really help it stand out.

I grouped a few more stickers from the Sticker Sheet together to the right of the horizontal photo to complete this part of the page. I love that pocket watch, and how it hints to the fact that time spent with family is the best way to spend our days!

The rich colors of the Our Family collection worked perfectly for these photos of my older kids on Easter. How about you? Do you have a family group shot that needs documenting?

Process Video: All Hallow’s Eve

Today I’m back with another Layout Process Video featuring the BOOtiful Night collection by American Crafts. Last week I shared how I used the 6×6 paper pad in quadrants to create a scrapbook page … today, I’m using the 6×6 paper pad to piece together longer strips across the width of the page.

Spellbinders: Quick Gift with Handmade Fall Flowers

I needed a quick gift to take to several people as a THANK YOU for helping me out with a church event. I purchased some beautiful, pumpkin-scented candles and then decorated them with a brown, satin ribbon bow and a beautiful, die-cut flower.

I used two shades of orange cardstock and the Spellbinders Textured Flowers dies the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine to create the flowers. The leaves are cut from Carta Bella Classic Green Shimmer Cardstock.

These dies are GORGEOUS!!! I love that the petals and leaves have elegant line details … so different than just a plain die! Love that!

I love when I can use my craft supplies to dress up an everyday object. Try adding a handmade flower to the next gift you give to kick it up a notch! It definitely adds that special, custom touch!

American Crafts: BOOtiful Night Card Trio

Today I have a trio of Halloween cards to share with you using the American Crafts BOOtiful Night collection.

American-Crafts-Bootiful-Night-Cards-Jana-Eubank-1-600

This was such a fun set to put together! First, I began by cutting three card bases from the 12×12 Black Textured Cardstock. I then chose which die cuts I wanted to feature on each card and then selected 6×6 paper to go with each one.

I thought the spooky night scene paper would be perfect to go behind the Haunted House die cut! I added some black pearls a Halloween wood button tied with twine, and two puffy sticker jack-o-lanterns sitting near the porch … just waiting to greet the trick-or-treaters!

How CUTE are the ghosts in this collection?! I don’t think I would run away from these two if I came across them … they are too friendly and sweet to bo scary!

I would call the skulls in this collection sweet-and-spooky … their expression has a goofy edge to it, don’t you think? I added a silver spiderweb doily and some candy stickers to accent this silly guy.
