This week I have been working on getting our holiday decorations up all over the house. The Christmas music is blasting and the holiday ambiance is in full swing … I LOVE it!

This year, I added a new decoration to our decor … this darling Pocket Frame by Details 2 Enjoy!

Details 2 Enjoy were generous enough to send a few of us on the Echo Park Design Team a frame to play with. I received the Size C Pocket Frame … perfect for using with 12×12 scrapbook paper!

What is so cool about these frames? They are a shadow frame of sorts … the top piece of the frame is attached with magnets. You remove it to reveal two panels that slide in and out. These panels can be changed out whenever your heart desires … making these so much fun to decorate for seasons, holidays, different color schemes, etc.

Watch the video I made of the bare frame before I began my project to see what I mean.

I began my project by painting the frame with gold acrylic paint.

Next, I used the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery collection to decorate my frame.

I covered the inside panel with the dark green Border Strips paper with it’s pine pattern. Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut out the sentiment (Merry and Bright by Kristen Magee, Design #98879) in two papers; Natural White Linen Designer Cardstock and the red tone-on-tone pattern of the Black & Cream Plaid paper.

For the top hexagon shaped panel, I covered it in the beautiful Festive Florals paper . Then I used strips of the red Black & Cream Plaid paper to add a border to the hexagon opening.

The poinsettia flower was cut with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using an Echo Park Paper shape from the Silhouette Design Store (Poinsettia Design #48509). I cut the flower from the red side of the Black & Cream Plaid paper and the Scarlet Red Felt Designer Cardstock.

I spritzed the red flower shapes with dark red Glimmer Mist to give them a bit of a sheen. This will look so pretty in the twinkling Christmas lights at night, right?!

The leaves were cut from the green side of the Festive Florals paper.

I also cut several pine branches from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock using the Joyful Pine Die Set. I LOVE this die!!! It’s a must have for any Christmas project!

Echo Park Paper: I Love Winter Ice Skates

jana-eubank-i-love-winter-ice-skates-4-600
There is something so magical about wintertime that captures my heart. The sparkling of the sun on freshly fallen snow, the glistening of icicles, the scent of fireplaces keeping homes warm and cozy. I love it! Winter brings back memories of playing outside in the snow for hours with my siblings, the excitement of sledding down a hill, and studying the way my boots made impressions in the slush and snow as I walked home from school.
Now that I’m older I get excited for a new kind of winter fun … being inside, all cozy in my home, with a hot cup of cocoa and a table full of fun papercrafting supplies!
jana-eubank-i-love-winter-ice-skates-1-600
You can bring the magic of winter to a corner of your home with this fun project I’m sharing with you today. I used the “I Love Winter” collection to create a pair of paper skates. I plan on hanging these on our coat rack, but they would also be cute hanging on a door knob, a chest of drawers, or even in a window.
Do you know someone who is battling the winter blues? Fill these skates up with hot cocoa, marshmallows, and chocolate for a warm, winter hello and leave them hanging on their front door as a fun surprise. I know *I* would love it if someone left something like this for ME!
jana-eubank-i-love-winter-ice-skates-2-600
The skates were created with my Silhouette Cameo machine and a cut file from the Winter Gazebo collection by SVGCuts.com. I cut the base of the project out using the Ultra White Felt and Charcoal Grey Linen Designer Cardstocks.
Next, I added decorative paper. I used the tone-on-tone white pattern of the Chilly Day Paper for the sides, the woodgrain 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper for accents, and the striped Warm Wishes Paper for the blades.

Finally, I used all kinds of cute accents from the Element Stickers, Chipboard Accents, Ephemera die cuts, and Decorative Brads to decorate the sides of the skates. I love that each skate has it’s own personality.

What are you waiting for? It’s the perfect time of year to pull out your craft supplies and spend a cozy afternoon inside creating something just for fun … just because.

Happy crafting!

Noel Mignon: Feeding the Birds

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-2

Hello webbie friends! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog this week with my final page for the month using the All Fall kits.

This week the design team is challenging ourselves to create a project using the following recipe: 1 sheet of cardstock, 2 alphabets, 3 photos, 4 patterned papers, and 5 embellishments.

Here is what I came up with!

FEEDING THE BIRDS

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-1

First, let me tell you a little bit about these photos. A few summers ago, Mr. Owen found three lost baby birds in our neighborhood. He was so worried about them, so he carefully scooped them up in a large bucket from our garage and brought them to our back patio, where he could watch over them (he was worried the neighbor’s cat would eat them) and feed them every few hours.

He faithfully fed those little birds all weekend long until we noticed that the mother had found them and had started to bring food to them, as well! I was so proud of Owen’s caring heart and diligence in his bird-sitting!

I began this page with a sheet of white cardstock from my stash. I recently ordered these fun Stampin’ Up stamps and wanted to build a background with them for this page. (Stamps used are Watercolor Wash background stamp and Gorgeous Grunge. I used them with Stampin’ Up Tip Top Taupe ink)

I love the look of artsy backgrounds … but am not very good at creating them. Thank heavens for brilliant companies who create products that help me get a similar look! Woohoo!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-2

While I was creating this page … the song “Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins kept playing in my mind … so, that is what I used for my title! I used the two alphabets that were included in the Noel Mignon All Fall Classic Kit. I especially love those dark yellow tile letter stickers by Pretty Little Studio… so cute!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-3

For my three photos, I had one of Owen feeding the birds, one of the baby birds all snuggly in their bucket, and then I was lucky enough to get a shot of the mother bird feeding them as well.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-4

Three of the four patterned papers were used in strips as a band across the page. I used the fourth patterned paper to mat my photos.

For the five embellishments, I used five chipboard leaves from the Noel Mignon All Fall Daily Diary kit … I REALLY tried to leave it to those five leaves, but couldn’t resist popping in one of the wood circle embellishments from the Classic kit, and also a few gold photo corners from my stash. I’m not counting the journal card (All Fall Daily Diary kit) or the glitter dots (these were from the Thicker Alpha sticker sheet, so they can go towards being a part of the two alphas, right?! Boo-yah!).

This was such a fun challenge and forced me to focus on adding supplies to my project in a very purposeful way. Give it a try! I think you’ll enjoy it!

Thank you so much for coming by today!

Carta Bella: Fall Drive Layout

jana-eubank-autumn-fall-drive-layout-photo-2-600

I thought I would finish up this week with a couple more Fall projects before heading into the holidays … This first one was created with the Carta Bella Autumn collection.

FALL DRIVE

I used the ledger paper for my background. I’ve mentioned it in a past process video, but I LOVE that this paper says “Gordon’s Pumpkin Farm” across the top because my dad’s name is Gordon.🙂

jana-eubank-autumn-fall-drive-layout-photo-1-600

Aren’t the colors of the embellishments and patterns in this collection to die for?!! I had a lot of fun clustering them together at the bottom of the page.

jana-eubank-autumn-fall-drive-layout-photo-2-600

I cut several of the cross-stitch leaves from the Fall Stitching Paper to use as accents around the layout.

For this Halloween page, I pulled out some pretty papers I had in my stash from the Oct. 2015 Felicity Jane “That One Day” kit. I feel like that floral paper was MADE for these photos. Swoon!

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

jana-eubank-felicity-jane-alice-in-wonderland-1

These photos of my daughter are from Halloween 2015. We found that blue dress at a second-hand store by a stroke of luck. We added a pinafore we bought online, a pair of white tights, black shoes, and a black headband and she was ready to go. “I’m Late! I’m Late! for a very important date!” Hehe!

jana-eubank-felicity-jane-alice-in-wonderland-2

Anytime I work with one of my Felicity Jane kits it’s mandatory that I fussy-cut the floral paper.😀😀😀 I love the florals! And love to make them center stage on the pages I do with these kits.

jana-eubank-felicity-jane-alice-in-wonderland-3

I’m also in love with the hexagon dot paper. The blue is so pretty!

I added some stitching at the top of the page and through the letter stickers for a bit of texture.

Thank you for coming by! Have a wonderful weekend!
