Last year, as I was shopping for Christmas presents, I stumbled across these adorable Espari dolls. I couldn’t get over how much they looked like my daughter and my niece. These two cousins are the best of friends … and so I thought it would be fun to give them the doppelganger doll of one another as a token of their friendship. They loved them!

I have been dying to use these poinsettia stamps by Stampin’ Up on a project … so I pulled them out to use on my first page with the Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits. (There are still a few left in Noel’s shop if you are interested in checking them out. The Oh, What Fun Classic Kit is HERE, and the Daily Diary Kit is HERE. )

My title was created using my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine. I cut it out twice using red and white cardstock so that I could create an offset shadow for the word.

Around the title I placed those adorable mini acrylic stars by Pretty Little Studio. They were included in the Classic Kit this month along with several script words. I used one of the words to accent the bottom left photo on this page.

My photos are stacked on top of each other with a red cardstock mat. I placed a few more 6×6 paper layers behind. I just love those mini patterns!

Here is a closer look at the stamped poinsettias I made using the Reason for the Season stamp set by Stampin’ Up. I stamped the outline in black ink. The stamp set comes with shadow stamps that make the leaves and the petals look shaded. I stamped them in red and green ink, and then used colored pencils in slightly different shades to finish filling them in. I love how they turned out!

Noel Mignon: Feeding the Birds

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-2

Hello webbie friends! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog this week with my final page for the month using the All Fall kits.

This week the design team is challenging ourselves to create a project using the following recipe: 1 sheet of cardstock, 2 alphabets, 3 photos, 4 patterned papers, and 5 embellishments.

Here is what I came up with!

FEEDING THE BIRDS

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-1

First, let me tell you a little bit about these photos. A few summers ago, Mr. Owen found three lost baby birds in our neighborhood. He was so worried about them, so he carefully scooped them up in a large bucket from our garage and brought them to our back patio, where he could watch over them (he was worried the neighbor’s cat would eat them) and feed them every few hours.

He faithfully fed those little birds all weekend long until we noticed that the mother had found them and had started to bring food to them, as well! I was so proud of Owen’s caring heart and diligence in his bird-sitting!

I began this page with a sheet of white cardstock from my stash. I recently ordered these fun Stampin’ Up stamps and wanted to build a background with them for this page. (Stamps used are Watercolor Wash background stamp and Gorgeous Grunge. I used them with Stampin’ Up Tip Top Taupe ink)

I love the look of artsy backgrounds … but am not very good at creating them. Thank heavens for brilliant companies who create products that help me get a similar look! Woohoo!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-2

While I was creating this page … the song “Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins kept playing in my mind … so, that is what I used for my title! I used the two alphabets that were included in the Noel Mignon All Fall Classic Kit. I especially love those dark yellow tile letter stickers by Pretty Little Studio… so cute!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-feeding-the-birds-3

For my three photos, I had one of Owen feeding the birds, one of the baby birds all snuggly in their bucket, and then I was lucky enough to get a shot of the mother bird feeding them as well.

Three of the four patterned papers were used in strips as a band across the page. I used the fourth patterned paper to mat my photos.

For the five embellishments, I used five chipboard leaves from the Noel Mignon All Fall Daily Diary kit … I REALLY tried to leave it to those five leaves, but couldn’t resist popping in one of the wood circle embellishments from the Classic kit, and also a few gold photo corners from my stash. I’m not counting the journal card (All Fall Daily Diary kit) or the glitter dots (these were from the Thicker Alpha sticker sheet, so they can go towards being a part of the two alphas, right?! Boo-yah!).

This was such a fun challenge and forced me to focus on adding supplies to my project in a very purposeful way. Give it a try! I think you’ll enjoy it!

Thank you so much for coming by today!

Noel Mignon: Fall

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-6

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday this weekend in the USA, I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for YOU! Thank you for reading my posts, your kinds comments, support, and for inspiring me to keep creating. I love the online scrapbook community! You are all just such lovely people! Thank you for being a part of my life.😀

Over the next few days I’m working on posting the remainder of the Fall themed projects I have created this year (although, in reality, you might still see a few trickle in here-and-there over the next week) before tackling my holiday crafting.

Today I am up on the Noel Mignon blog with a two-page layout featuring the November All Fall Classic and All Fall Daily Diary kits. I also created a process video that is listed below, if you would like to see how this page came together.

FALL

Here is a closer look at some of the details of the left side of the layout.

I had so much fun fussy-cutting out the leaves from the Pretty Little Studio “Oakley Avenue” vellum paper. They looked so cute scattered at the feet of my forest friends.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-4jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-5

I cut the title on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the cut file “Fall by Loni Stevens” (Design #15233) from the Silhouette Design Store. I embossed it using the Woodgrain 5×7 embossing folder by Darice.

And now for the right side of this page spread …

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-3

Of course I have to add a little bit of aqua to every page I do! I adore this flair badge from Pretty Little Studio!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-7

And how cute is this little fox from the Echo Park Fall is in the Air collection. I cut him out of the 3×4 cut apart sheet included with the All Fall Daily Diary Kit.

Mr. Hedgie, by Simple Stories, makes his home in the top right corner of the page. I added more leaves, a script word sticker, heart stickers, and a couple of sparkly decorative brads.

Thanks so much for coming by! I hope you leave feeling inspired to create something fun!

Noel Mignon: Pumpkin Patch Pocket Page

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-9

This week I combine the Noel Mignon All Fall Classic Kit and All Fall Daily Diary kit together on this 3-page pocket spread of my family’s visit to the pumpkin patch last year. I love how this one came together!

GRATEFUL

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-1

I love when Noel includes Simple Stories in her kits because they are definitely one of my favorite companies! I pulled out all of the Hello Fall elements and combined them together on these pages.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-2

I just love the colors, patterns, typography, and icons in this set! The “Grateful” die cut made the perfect title!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-4

I used more die cuts on the cards towards the bottom of the page. How cute is that little fox circle … and the leaves?! Ack! I also couldn’t get enough of the phrase stickers. I used a combination of the Pebbles phrase stickers from this month’s kit along with the Simple Stories phrase stickers that were included on the large 12×12 sticker sheet of last month’s Falloween Daily Diary kit.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-5

More die cuts and goodies over on the other side of the spread!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-3

I created a little cluster on the corner of each photo at the top of the page using the die cuts, phrase stickers, and those adorable patterned orange buttons from the All Fall Classic kit!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-6

Some Simple Stories element stickers (Oct. Falloween Daily Diary kit) adorn two of the photos at the bottom of the page.

The journaling cards gets a little dimension with a wood button from last month’s kit and another one of those darling patterned Queen & Co. buttons from this month’s kit.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-7

The Simple Stories fun continues on the third page of this spread.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-8

Enamel dots are the perfect little dimensional accent for the 4×6 quote card.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-9

I pulled in a bit of the Echo Park plaid washi tape (last month’s kit) to add some pattern to the bottom of a couple of the photos. A few die cuts and orange buttons clustered together round things out.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-grateful-10

Finally, I had fun creating my own large journaling card for this one. I trimmed down a notebook patterned card I had in my stash and adhered it to the patterned side of one of the 4×6 journaling cards. Next, I decorated the top and bottom of the card with a few die cuts and Simple Stories stickers … and of course another button!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are having a creative week!
