I have a couple of Echo Park projects to share today that I recently created for their blog. Here is the first.

PURSE GIFT BAG

I created this purse gift bag for Mother’s Day, but it would also be perfect for a girlfriend or a sister! I used the adorable Echo Park Paper Petticoats collection, ,my Silhouette Cameo machine, and this cut file by Samantha Walker Designs (#55521).

I love the way the floral Beautiful Bouquets paper looks with the green Sunny Damask paper. I added in soft pink and hot pink accents, too.

I took a few extra moments to add stitching on each panel with hot pink thread and my sewing machine. I love the detailed look this adds to the project!

In the corner I die cut a few roses with my Cameo machine (Echo Park Silhouette Shape called “Roses” #71592) and then added a sentiment from the Petticoats Chipboard Accents sheet.

I would love to receive this fun gift bag with a goodie inside, wouldn’t you? I think the special gals in your life will, too!

This next project was one I created using the Echo Park Paper Pinstripes collection, the brother to the Petticoats collection. I ADORE a good masculine paper collection … and this one is superb!

This project is perfect for filling that empty spot on your son’s bedroom shelf.

I created this rocket using the Silhouette Cameo and this rocket box shape by Snapdragon Snippets (#38292) from the Silhouette Design Store. Of course I had to use the Cars and Stars paper with it’s fun constellation of stars for the body of the rocket! It looks so cute paired with the red Boy Bingo Stripes paper and Stars Foil paper.
I added a Rocket die cut to the side using the 6×6 paper pad and Rocket Die Set. The clouds beneath the rocket were created using the Under the Weather Die Set. I feel like this ship
is ready to shoot for the stars!

I adorned the other side of the rocket with a sprinkling of gears using the Gears Die Set. I cut each shape out twice to give each gear a white shadow … helping them to stand out a bit more. A few dimensional embellishments here-and-there add sparkle and shine.

Carta Bella Paper: Yacht Club Banner

Warmer days are ahead of us and that has me in the mood to head to the beach! Until I can get there I am going to bring the beach to me by adorning my home with this nautical banner that I’m sharing on the Carta Bella Paper blog today!

I cut the banner from various papers from the Carta Bella Paper Yacht Club 6×6 paper pad using my Cricut Expression machine and the Birthday Bash cartridge for the banner shapes. I cut the same shapes again from the Carta Bella Black Felt Designer Cardstock, and then adhered the two matching layers together to give each panel a little more weight to support the embellishments I wanted to add to it and to help it hang correctly.

The first panel was embossed using the Yacht Club Anchors embossing folder. I love the texture an embossing folder adds to a project! Next, I added a couple of vertical layered strips and then decorated the pennant with  the darling ephemera, chipboard accents, decorative brads, and enamel dots from the collection.
The second panel is decorated with a boat sticker and a tag, topped with a sparkling decorative brad.

I love the “Seas the Day” die cut on the third panel. The play on words just makes me smile! I wanted to add a little woodgrain tape to the top of the die cut; it was a little too wide, so I simply cut it in half lengthwise. Finally, I added the flag die cuts along the top.

I had fun creating scenes on the last two panels.
For the fourth panel, I cut a dolphin from the red polka dot paper using the Sea Life Animals #2 Die Set. I love how he looks like he is going to jump right off of the banner!
On the last panel, I created a little scene with the boat chipboard. The boat almost seems to be sailing along the banner sticker, and greets you with a friendly “Ahoy!” The enamel dots feel like bubbles or water droplets splashing up from the ocean! As a final touch, I added the Anchors Decorative Tape across the top.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to don my boat shoes and go for a sail. I had so much fun playing with Yacht Club!

Carta Bella Paper: Baby Boy Blocks

Jana Eubank Its A Boy Die Cut Blocks Photo 10

Last month, I had the pleasure of creating a fun project for a baby boy using the adorable Carta Bella Paper “It’s A Boy” collection … and I realized that I neglected to share it here on my blog.

I really enjoyed making this one! It’s been a LONG time since I’ve made anything for babies!😀 I decided to make a series of stacked gift boxes that you could fill with little goodies for the baby, and then can be displayed in his nursery afterwards. Here’s a look!

BABY BOY STACKED GIFT BOX BLOCKS

I created the blocks from Kraft Designer Cardstock using my electronic cutting machine. Next, I selected a mix of fun papers from the It’s A Boy 6×6 Paper Pad and Dots & Stripes Paper Pad. The scale of these patterns are PERFECT for a project like this!

Each panel of each block is decorated with a little scene or vignette.I used a mixture of stickers, die cuts, chipboard, and embossed cardstock to make each one come alive with dimension.

The stuffed animal shapes in this collection are especially cute! Baby will have so much fun learning each of the animals names. I couldn’t resist tying a little bow around each of their necks.

Even the stars feel like they are twinkling with the addition of shiny enamel dots.

As an added bonus, the tops of each block open easily, so that mom and dad can store a few extra cotton balls or cotton swabs inside.

I have a new Echo Park Paper project using the Easter collection to share with you today!

Jana Eubank Wooden Easter Eggs Photo 1

As I started pulling out my holiday decorations this Spring I decided that my Easter collection was looking a little sad. Time to spruce things up! Like a breath of fresh air, the Easter collection came to my rescue and I used it to create these adorable altered Wood Easter Shapes that I found at Michael’s. This set was so much fun to create with the happy colors and patterns of this collection! I love the way they came together!

I hand cut the stripes for the large Easter egg shape, and then used an Echo Park Flower Silhouette Shape to create the dimensional flowers as an accent. A few decorative brads add the perfect hint of shine.

For the smaller Easter egg, I decided to create a Springtime scene. I handcut the grass from the Spring Blue/Green Distressed Solid paper and then added the sun and cloud with the Under the Weather Die Set. The tree is from the Easter Element Sticker sheet. Next, I added the bunny from the Peter Cottontail Die Set. Isn’t he cute?!! He’s looks so content holding his carrot.

I wanted the wood bird shape to have a little more dimension, so I decided to give her a layered wing. I cut the wing shape from this Echo Park Bird Silhouette cut file. I cut the same shape three times and then layered them together using foam squares. A pink bow around her neck and a yellow button adorning her wing finish her off!
