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.

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!

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: Best Dad

This past week I have been off on a camping trip with my family, but this page was featured on the Echo Park Paper blog last week as we all created a project to celebrate dads! It only seemed fitting that I made a page about how much I appreciate all that my husband does and is for our family. He truly is the BEST dad!

For this page, I pulled out the Grandson Mini Theme and a gorgeous sheet of Chestnut Brown Linen Designer Cardstock by Carta Bella Paper. I am not a grandmother yet, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t use this collection. I LOVE the patterns in this mini theme … the combination of the plaid with the woodgrain and bright colors is fantastic! I simply chose the elements from the collection that would work for my page and covered up any words that didn’t apply.

In the top corner of the page, I made a little cluster of word stickers. I love the phrase “So there’s this boy…” because it reminds me of how I used to talk about my husband when we were dating. Hehe! He is the boy that captured my heart and has kept it all of these years!

I cut out the orange hexagon shape from one of the journaling cards to use as a frame for my title. The title was cut on my electronic cutting machine. I then used the tag stickers and a couple of punched woodgrain stars around the title for a bit more pizazz.

More punched stars and buttons are sprinkled above the tags, framing and drawing your attention to the journaling strips.

To balance the color going on around the page, I also layered and grouped together a few of the solid stickers in the upper right corner of my photo.
What is it that you appreciate about the men in your life? I challenge you to take some time to record those sentiments on your next scrapbook page.

Carta Bella Paper: Building a Background with 6×6 Paper Pads


Today I am sharing a vacation layout created with the Carta Bella Paper Are We There Yet? collection.

Jana Eubank Carta Bella Are We There Yet San Francisco Layout 1 600
For this page, I thought it would be fun to use my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic die cutting machine to die cut a background shape and than back the openings with several of the cute patterns from the 6×6 paper pad.
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Are We There Yet San Francisco Layout 2 600
I used a cut file that I found in the Silhouette store. This particular shape had patterns in the center of each hexagon. I cut the shape from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock and then simply used a pair of scissors to cut the pattern away so that each hexagon had a blank opening where I could add the 6×6 patterned papers.

I placed my photo on a polaroid-style mat using a block of Navy Felt Designer Cardstock. To the right of the photo, I added two of the 3×4 cards cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper and National Parks Paper. I then embellished the bottom of the mat, as well as several of the hexagon shapes, with stickers, chipboard shapes, and brads.

Next, I used one of the large hexagons as a home for my title. I added a chipboard piece and enamel shape below the title to punch it up a bit.

I love the way this page turned out with all of the cute patterned papers. I’m definitely going to try this technique on another page soon.
