Carta Bella Paper: Yacht Club Banner

Jana Eubank Yacht Club Banner Photo 2

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!

Noel Mignon: Christmas Concoction with a Free Download

JanaEubank_Concoction4

Happy Thursday! I should be out Christmas shopping this week, but I can’t stop playing with my Noel Mignon Mistletoe & Holly kit!

I love the variety of color combinations possible with this kit. For the page below I pulled out the mint, aqua, red, and pink colors. Tomorrow I will share a page using a more traditional color palette of red and green.

CAMRYN’S CHRISTMAS CONCOCTION

My daughters have a fascination with mixing up potions in the kitchen. Whether it’s flavored lemonades, popsicles, or flavored hot cocoa, they have fun experimenting. Last Christmas, my daughter had an egg nog “specialty” that I wanted to record.

You can make it, too! *wink* Simply take egg nog, add whipped cream to the top, then add color with some Christmas sprinkles. Finally, it MUST be finished off with a chocolate kiss! Enjoy!

Lately, I’m having fun creating my own script cut files for my titles. I have another FREEBIE for you today!

I created a trio of circles in the bottom right corner of the photos using the two snowflake rosettes and circle tag from the kit. It was a great place to record Cam’s special “recipe.” Hehe!

My daughter was wearing her Christmas penguin pajamas in these photos. The penguin was so bright and fun that I decided to recreate him on the page holding his own special drink. He’s so cute!

The penguin I used is by Lettering Delights Bird Buddies set. The drink is from the Cricut Love You a Latte cartridge. I also created the die cut square stamp shape in the background using an image from the Lettering Delights Peppermint Holiday Expressions set.

Happy Wednesday, Friends! Are you gearing up for a Happy Thanksgiving and spending time with friends and family over the next few days? Or maybe you are gearing up for some serious shopping this weekend, both at stores and on the web.:) I’m not a Black Friday shopper, but I do love all of the deals I find online this time of year.:)

Infact, just this past weekend, I succumbed to the Today’s Special going on at HSN.com and bought myself a new photo printer. I’ve had my current color printer for almost ten years, so I figured it was time for an upgrade. I picked up the Canon Pixma here. I admit it, I was crushing on the sleek, white color. It had me at “hello.” Hehe! Now I just hope it lives up to my picky photo-printing standards. Does anyone have this printer? Do you like it? After I receive it and play with it for a few weeks, I’ll let you know my thoughts.

I also spent the morning on Joann.com filling my cart with several Technique Tuesday stamps (LOVE Ali Edwards’ stamps!). All paper crafting is 50% off right now! Until Thursday, you can use the code COZY331 for $1.99 flat rate shipping (or free shipping over $50). Just thought I would let you know in case you’re a pathological supply shopper like I am. *wink!*

 

 

………………………

I’ve been doing more scrapping with my stash and have a couple more pages to share.

First, another Halloween page using an older collection by October Afternoon called Witch Hazel.:) Awww, how I love Halloween!

HALLOWEEN PRINCESS

Next, I have a couple of pages with a vintage feel to them. I’ve been hanging onto Teresa Collins Fabrications line to scrap these pictures of Maryn’s Pioneer Birthday party at the Lion House from a few years ago.

Using vintage colors like this is actually quite tricky for me. I tend to gravitate towards bright, candy colors, but it’s also nice to step out of my comfort zone once in awhile.

PIONEER PARTY

For both of these pages, I pulled out my Cricut Explore machine. The lion head on the two-pager is from the French Manor cartridge. The children image on the “Pioneer Party” page is from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge.

Thank you so much for popping by! If I don’t get a chance to “see” you tomorrow, Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Halloween Happenings

Happy Belated Halloween! I hope you had a magical, whimsical day with your family and friends. Here is how the Eubank family celebrated Halloween this year.

Last Saturday was the Jensyn’s Halloween dance. She went in a group of friends with four couples and each of them decided to dress as a decade. Jensyn and her date dressed as the 80s.:) We have the 80s and the 90s featured on the back row … and then the 50s and the 70s featured on the front row. I LOVED that the guys really got into dressing up, too! They looked great!

BlogGroup

We were lucky to find this yellow mesh sweater at Saver’s along with a bunch of funky jewelry and a wide belt to sling across her hips.:)

BlogJensynDate

 

It’s hard to tell from this picture, but Jensyn had her hair crimped all wavy and up in a banana clip (remember those?). I love her hair wavy! It took forever to do (she’s so lucky to have thick, long hair … wish *I* had that “problem” hehe!), so we worked on it earlier in the day before their day activity of bowling.

BlogJensyn

 

After bowling, they all went home to change in their garb, and then they came over to our house for dinner on our back patio. I had fun decorating it all fancy for them. My husband was sweet enough to hang up all the lights for us. It looked amazing!

BlogTable

 

I pulled out my Silhouette Cameo machine and created decorations to go on the backs of each chair. The accordian spiderweb is by SVG Cuts and can be found in the Catacomb Manor SVG Kit.

BlogSpiderChair

On the alternating chairs, I enlarged the banner from the SVG Cuts Midnight Jamboree Kit … so cute!

BlogPumpkinChair

I cut out several spiderwebs (Creepy Spider Web by Samantha Walker in the Silhouette Online Store)  and layered them down the center of the table as a table runner. I cut a spiders (Cricut October 31st Cartridge) out and used glue dots to attach them to the edges of the glasses. The rest of the doodads were in a party kit that I purchased at Michael’s. I purchased the metal haunted house at TJ Maxx about 7 years ago. We placed in on the table with dry ice fog oozing out the sides. It looked awesome!

See the beaded spiders on the table? I made those following directions on THIS SITE. They were so much fun! Afterwards, I sprinkled them among my Halloween decorations inside to add a creepy touch.

Yesterday morning, the kids carved their pumpkins.

BlogPumpkins

Jensyn grossed us out with her Barfing King pumpkin. Owen created a John Denver Pumpkin. Maryn’s pumpkin had toothpick teeth and carved hair, and Camryn created a kitty cat with hears and legs attached with pumpkins. They all looked so festive sitting on the front porch!

All dressed up and ready to have some fun!
