Battle the Winter Blues by BUSTING Some Stash!

The beginning of 2023 was a bit rocky for me and for the first time in a long time, I felt myself sinking into the January BLAHS! Yuck! As I wondered to myself why this was happening, I realized that it had been several weeks since I had been in my craft room … I needed to get back to CREATING!

Playing with paper is my therapy! Instead of allowing the winter blues to take me over, I decided I would fight back. I printed some snowy photos, grabbed an older snow-themed collection from my stash, and got to work! I felt happier almost immediately! Yay!


I used the 2016 Carta Bella Snow Fun collection for this layout of my son having lunch at a ski resort. My son and my husband often go snowboarding together in the wintertime. It’s their time to bond and I love that they have these special one-on-one memories together.

SUPPLIES USED: Cardstock (Carta Bella Paper) Patterned Paper, Stickers, Brads (‘Snow Fun’ collection by Carta Bella Paper), Letter Stickers (‘Buckaroo’ Thickers by American Crafts)

So, if you’ve been battling the winter blues … do yourself a favor and do something that brings you joy. Even if it’s a couple of hours of interrupted creative time in your craft room. I promise you will feel better afterwards.

See you again soon!

Echo Park Paper: Lost in Neverland Card Set

Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection!  I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.

Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.

The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!

For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.

I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.

I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.

Stacked, die cut rectangles anchor the characters on this fun card. How cute is Sleeping Nana drifting in the top left corner?!

Echo Park Paper: Pirate Tales Card Trio

Ahoy there, Matey! I’m up on the Echo Park Paper Blog today with a trio of cards created with the Pirate Tales collection. This collection is so fabulous with its variety of freebooters ready to head out on their next adventure!

Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Pirate Tales Card Trio 1 800

This first card features the Skulls & Cross Bones Die Set. I placed it on the helm fussy-cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards. I added the “Believe” word across the bones, and then placed the “X Marks the Spot” sticker below for the sentiment. The Stitched Rectangle die cut frames the everything with a nice pop of yellow.

This second card features a pirate that was fussy-cut from the 6×4 Journaling Cards paper. The bracket die cut from the Ephemera Pack makes a nice scene for the background. I added a few chipboard pieces along the bottom of the die cut and then tucked a ship (created with the Pirate Ship Die Set) behind the left edge.

This last card features a young pirate (fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper) dreaming about his next treasure hunt. I fussy-cut a banner from the Constellations paper to go across the top and added texture to the solid background paper using the Mermaid Scales embossing folder from the Mermaid Dreams collection.

These cards were so much fun to put together! They will be perfect for giving to the boys and men in my life. Have a great day!
