Noel Mignon: Love and Laughter

Jana Eubank Noel Mignon Love Laughter 4

I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog today with a page for the “Love and Laughter” design challenge, where we were to use these words as our page title. I used a combination of the Vintage Charm Classic Kit and Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit.

This title reminds me of my husband and I. We definitely live each day with love and laughter, he is my best friend and I couldn’t imagine going through this journey of life without him.

I decided to grab a few silly pictures of us and document how thankful I am for him in my life.

LOVE AND LAUGHTER

I think I have used those butterflies and phrase stickers on almost every page I have created with the kits this month … I adore them!

I was also inspired by the dot pattern on the circle paper to add lots of stitching to this page. I love how homespun stitching makes a page feel!

The title was cut using my Silhouette Electronic Cutting Machine and a cut file I found in the Silhouette Design Store. I used an ampersand from one of the sticker sheets for a bit more color and design.

Below the photo grouping, I created a cluster of pennant shapes. Some of them are stickers, some are tags, and some are handcut from the 6×6 patterned papers from the Vintage Charm Daily Diary kit. I also created one out of cardstock and embossed it with my favorite Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

This wraps up my projects using the Vintage Charm kits from August. I have the new September Buttons & Bows kits in my hot little hands and will hitting those next. I haven’t had a chance to create videos for those yet (I’ve been moving my daughter off to college this past week), but you can check out the kits at the links below. You can still purchase the Vintage Charm kits OR the Buttons and Bows kits in the Noel Mignon shop HERE.

Echo Park Paper: Mermaid Party!

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.

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.
