Carta Bella Paper: Never Grow Up Layout

Hi, Everyone! The Carta Bella Toy Box collection not only takes me back to the days when I was younger, but also when my kids were younger. I giggled when I saw the Magic Toy Room paper because it reminded me exactly how my son’s room looked when he was a little boy.

Today I used this collection to document my son’s 12th birthday. The Toy Banner paper was so much fun to fussy-cut and use as a decorative element across my page.

I popped the banner pieces up on foam squares to give the page some depth and then added several of the chipboard pieces and gem brads from the Decorative Brads set for even more texture.

I even added a banner across my journaling block.

At the top of the page, I added a chipboard phrase and then embellished it with the Decorative Brads. The large chipboard circle accent is adhered to a red button. I love the way this looks! It’s such a fun way to frame out those chipboard circle pieces!

I did the same thing with another red button at the bottom of the page.
The “Never Grow Up” chipboard phrase acts as the title on this page. To the left of it I added one of the darling Mini Paper Fans.

I love the way this one came together. The Toy Box collection was perfect for documenting these birthday photos! I think I will use it again to scrapbook my son blowing out the candles on the cake!

Echo Park Paper: I Love Being Your Mom Layout

I’m going to begin today’s post with a little story. My grandmother passed away a few years ago and as my mom and her sister were looking through their family photo albums, my mom’s sister said something to the effect of, “Why wasn’t mom at any of our family events?!” My mom replied with, “She was. She was always the one taking the pictures!”
Since hearing that story, I have tried to be better about handing the camera over to someone else so that *I* can be included in our family photos. I definitely don’t want my kids to look back on our memory albums and think I never came to anything! LOL!
I LOVE BEING YOUR MOM
Today’s page features a recent photo of me with all four of my children. My daughter went off to college this past year, and so I recognize that the opportunities to grab a shot like this are becoming more rare … so at our Easter dinner this year, I made a point to pull my family aside and have someone snap a few pictures of us together. I’m so glad I did!

I used the Summer Fun collection for this page. I couldn’t wait to take my scissors and fussy-cut the large florals of the Summer Floral Paper.

I used the florals to frame the photo, and then added a bit of lift to everything by adhering the photo and the floral pieces on top of a large piece of craft foam.

In the top right corner I added a stamped label with the season and date. I embellished the label with one of the chipboard circles from the Decorative Brads, adhering it to a large black button.

I used both my manual and electronic die cutting machines to create the title for this page. The large heart was cut using the Heart Label Die set. I layered a punched heart on top for added interest.
I cut the word “MOM” from coordinating solid papers using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

I wanted to add a bit of pizazz to the “MOM” word, so I added another fussy-cut flower, the palm leaves from the Enamel Shapes sticker set, and a black and white button tied with white crochet twine.
I’m so happy I have this photo of me with my children, and I definitely feel lucky to be their mom. They are my pride and joy!
If you haven’t taken a photo recently of you with your children, or a photo with your mom. Make sure to do it soon and then create a page with it! You will be so glad that you did. It will definitely become something you will treasure!

Carta Bella Paper: Toy Box Backpack Activity Set

Keep your little one entertained with this fun activity set! I created a paper backpack with the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection filled with notepads and crayons that I think would make the perfect gift for a toddler. There is even enough room in the backpack to add a snack!

I cut the base of the backpack from the Magic Toy Room paper with it’s darling blue plaid pattern. On the flap I added a decorative panel with the toy guns, and then created a tag to hang on the handle.

The tag was created with the Rounded Tag Die Set. I added the chipboard plane, and a word sticker from the Elements Sticker Sheet. Sparkly, gem decorative brads hold the handle in place.

The front of the backpack has a yellow polka dot pocket that is decorated with all kinds of fun toys from the Chipboard and Element Sticker sheets.

Inside, your toddler will find a pack of crayons and a few notebooks. I think it would be fun to add some fish crackers or a few chocolate chip cookies in there, too!

Echo Park Paper: 3D Book Box

Every young boy needs a special place to stash his treasures, and this 3D Book Box created with the Once Upon a Time Prince collection is the perfect way to do it!
Jana Eubank Once Upon Time Prince Book Box 8
The base of the box was cut using an electronic die cutting machine from Navy Felt and Natural White Felt designer cardstocks. The decorative panels of the book were cut using the Royal Kingdom and Shiny Shields papers.
I cut the knight from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper to decorate the front of the book, along with a mini paper fan, ephemera die cuts, die cuts, stickers, and a dragon from the Enamel Shapes.

I used the Hero die set to add a pennant behind the knight, and a crown to the mini paper fan. I also added a some green foliage cut using the Holiday Branches die set.

The spine is decorated, too!

Inside the box you will discover it has also received the royal treatment with the Charming Words paper, another cut apart from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper, and a liner from the 6×6 paper pad.
