Echo Park Paper: Under the Sea Beach Tote & Flip Flops

Do you know someone who could use a little pick me up this summer? Create this fun beach tote and two flip flop boxes with the Echo Park Paper Under the Sea collection to give to them, and they will be feeling “sun-sational” in no time!

I created this beach tote and the two flip flop boxes using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
The beach tote comes from the Luxury Handbags SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Isn’t it absolutely adorable! This is the kind of shape I could cut out again and again and decorate it a different way each and every time! I love how roomy it is, too!
I cut the main body of the beach bag from the dark blue Sea Explorers Paper with a sunny orange polka dotted pocket (Deep Sea Fun Paper). The yellow accents were cut from the Coordinating Yellow/Blue Solid Paper and the striped bottom is the Swimmingly Stripe Paper.

Of course I had a blast decorating the front of the bag with all kinds of die cuts (Frames & Tags Ephemera) and stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. I just love that happy yellow submarine and all of the sea creatures!

I couldn’t resist creating a couple of flip flop boxes to tuck inside. I used the orange dotted Deep Sea Fun Paper along with the navy striped side of the 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper. The top of the flip flop is decorated with the fish pattern from the 6×6 paper pad.

Won’t it be fun to fill the flip flop boxes with a treat and tuck them inside of the beach tote?! I plan to stick a few other treats inside, as well. I can’t wait to see the face of the person I give it to!

Carta Bella Paper: Pirate Ship

Ahoy there, Mateys! What little (or big!) boy wouldn’t love this 3D pirate ship sitting on their shelf?! This was a really fun project to create using the Carta Bella Paper Transatlantic Travel collection.

Jana Eubank Carta Bella Transatlantic Travel Pirate Ship 2 600

I die cut the ship using my Silhouette Electronic Die Cutting Machine and a cut file by Cre8ive Cutz. It looks daunting, but it was so easy to assemble. The papers of the Transatlantic Travel collection are what really make this project look special

The bottom of the boat was cut from the Take the Ride Paper. I added panels in Travel Gazette Paper (stripe) and the polka dot paper from the 6×6 paper pad. The stripe really gives this project a pirate feel! I added strips of the stripe paper to the sails, as well, to balance the pattern and keep the pirate-feel going throughout.

I added a cluster of die cuts from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack and Ephemera Pack to both the side of the boat and the ship’s sail … beckoning you to go on your own high sea adventure!
Black enamel dots from the Echo Park Wedding Bliss collection give the cannons some dimension and shine.

I added eyelets and jute twine to the sail to make it more realistic. I always love adding textural elements like this to a project!

At the top of the ship is a spooky pirate’s flag flying proudly. The skull image is by Echo Park and can be found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #80358).
I tied on a couple of tags from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack for a bit more detail here, as well.

Inside the ship I added a liner of the Travel Map Paper with the compass pattern.
And how cool is the sail with the script pattern on the front and the map pattern on the back. Eek! I love it so much!

Thanks for letting me share this fun project with you! My little swashbucklers are already clamoring at who gets to keep this one in their room! Ha!

Echo Park Paper: Wedding Gazebo Gift Box

I love a beautiful outdoor wedding in the summertime! Create a crisp, white gazebo adorned with flowers to collect wedding cards at your next wedding celebration … or maybe even use this as a special gift box! The Echo Park Paper Wedding Bliss collection is perfect for this!
Jana Eubank Wedding Bliss Gazebo 2 600
I created the box using the Carta Bella Paper Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock and the gorgeous papers from the Wedding Bliss collection. I cut the Gazebo Cut File (Winter Gazebo by SVGCuts.com) using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine.

I wanted the top of the gazebo to really catch your eye, so I used the Wedding Floral Paper with its beautiful gold foil accents. I added detail to the edges by embossing white cardstock with the Dainty Damask embossing folder.
Next, I created some big, beautiful flowers  and a Mini Paper Fan to use as a focal point on the roof. The flowers were cut using the Rose Flower – Small Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #193699 in the Silhouette Design Store). The leaves are from the Flower Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #192286 in the Silhouette Design Store).
I tucked in a couple of tags from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack for even more interest.

For the windows I used the Easter Vellum Dot Paper in Blush Bunny. I adhered it “inside out” so that the dots were a more subtle pink. I fussy-cut the banners from the Forever and Always Paper to form a swag all the way around the gazebo, adding in a couple of lengths of pearl strands for more dimension.
I punched the flowers from the Lt. Pink/Pink Coordinating Solid paper and then added enamel dots for the flower centers.

The box opens up so that you can place electronic lights inside, if you would like. Here you can see the vellum adhered to the inside of the box with the pattern facing inwards.

I added the “Bride & Groom” sticker and heart stickers to the doorway. Look how cute it looks all lit up in the dark!

On the bottom portion of the box, I created another cluster of embellishments with more die cut leaves and two more Mini Paper Fans. I added a couple of enamel dots to the center of one of the paper fans for a bit of shine. I added the “I Do” sticker to the center of the other one.

Another great use for this project would be to use it as a centerpiece of a table; either at a wedding, on a small table along with the guest book, or maybe as a fun decoration for a bridal shower. There are so many possibilities!

Echo Park Paper: Cruisin’ for a Summer Treat

I am always so inspired by the colors and icons of Echo Park Paper collections. When I saw the Summer Dreams collection for the first time, I just knew I had to make something that would incorporate all of the darling popsicles, ice cream cones, and snow cones. So an ice cream truck gift box it was!

Jana Eubank Summer Dreams Ice Cream Truck 1 600
I used my Sihouette Cameo machine to cut out the ice cream truck cut file by SVGCuts.com. I used the Solid Pink paper for the base, and then cut the decorative panels from the Say Cheese, Sweet As Summer, and Summer Vacation papers. I used the Solid Navy/Yellow paper for the wheels and trim pieces.

The window pieces were cut from vellum and then embossed with the Sunny Dots Embossing Folder for a bit of texture.
I added the speech bubble stickers to the front window, so that it appears like the people inside the ice cream truck are having a fun little conversation.

The back of the truck opens up so that you can place a fun treat inside for the recipient. I think this would be a really fun way to wish your child’s teacher (or anyone else) a Happy Summer Break!

The most fun part of projects like this, for me at least, is the embellishing! I added the chipboard “FUN” letters to the awning along with some shiny decorative brads and enamel dots.

It looks like you can walk right up to that window and order one of those delicious ice cream treats, doesn’t it?! The flamingo is there to greet you and take your order.

The other side of the box doesn’t get left out … I decorated it with the reader board sticker, and more chipboard pieces, stickers, brads, and enamel dots. I even added the small chipboard discs (decorative brads) and enamel dots to the wheels. You can never how too much pattern and texture on a fun project like this!
I even created a couple of pinwheels to go with it using the darling Sunny Pinwheel Die Set and the 6×6 papers and decorative brads.

Does this project get you excited for summer?! I am definitely ready to don my flip flops and grab a yummy, frozen treat!
