Queen & Co: Using the Foam Fronts Dies in Your Scrapbooking

Lately, I have been focusing on getting some older photos scrapbooked, in rotation with my newer photos. I try to switch back and forth … one new, one old, one new, one old … so that I can get caught up on our older memories, while still recording the details of our latest happenings.
Today I have two pages for you, both of them feature the NEW Foam Front dies.
This first page features newer photos of my husband and I when we went to the Magic Kingdom recently to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.

I wanted to challenge myself to use the NEW Foam Front Mickey die in a creative way on this page and decided to use it as a journaling block.

I cut the shape using red solid cardstock and then backed it with a yellow solid paper. I outlined the mouse ears with a journaling pen and then sprinkled several toppings on the inside.
I combined together red and blue Sequin Sprinkles, white Lollies, red Candy Sprinkles, Neutral (black) Pearlies, blue donuts, as well as blue and black Fimo Fun Toppings for a festive look!

I added journaling strips to the top of the foam front shape and then placed my title work below.
I also created a fun cluster of embellishments at the top of the journaling block.

I added some festive Magic Ribbon around our photos and then finished it off with the “Love” flair from the Magic Flair set. Perfect for our anniversary, don’t you think?!

For this second page, I decided to work with some photos from 2010 that I have been ignoring for far too long. They are of my daughter and her friends at a Cast Party after they performed in their Elementary’s school play of Aladdin.
CAST PARTY
For this card, I used the Foam Front Stars Die to build a background for my page. I love the way it came together!
Jana Eubank Queen & Co Cast Party Layout 1 600
First, I cut blue and green cardstock with the Foam Front Stars die, and then used my trimmer to trim the die cuts into 4 1/4″ squares. Next, I embossed them with various embossing folders from my stash and then adhered them to a block of white cardstock, adding Yellow Skinny Glitter Tape along the seams for a touch of sparkle.

I added a strip of photos, tied with blue Sparkle String, and then got to work on the title and journaling block.

I used a tag card that I die cut on my Silhouette machine, layered on top of a piece of patterned paper. Green rivets decorate the tab of the card, and Bitty Beads add texture to the green chipboard letters I used as part of the title. At the top, I layered together more glitter tapes (Green Dot Glitter Tape and Yellow Check Glitter Tape).

For more color and texture, I sprinkled some yellow Button Bouquet II buttons around the page, along with the yellow stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings. They feel like confetti sprinkled on the page and definitely add a party feel! Yay! “Celebrate Good Times, Come On! … It’s a Celebration!”

Queen & Company: ZOO Layout

Hello! I’m back again today with another layout using the adorable products from Queen & Company!
We were amazed at the beauty of the St. Louis Zoo when we visited as a family a few years ago. I was so mesmerized by the sights that I ended up only taking two photos!
Never fear! I was still able to scrapbook a page about our fun day by turning those two photos into letters for the title on this next page.
jana-eubank-queen-co-zoo-layout-1-600
I used my die cut machine to cut the letter “Z” from the orange chevron paper of the Picture Perfect Mat Stack, and then wrapped it with a length of green twine. Next, I cut my photos into circles using the Circle Die Set and papers from Picture Perfect and Flirty Florals.
To add a jungle feel, I used the Stampin’ Up Festive Flower Builder Punch to punch leaves from the dark green Around the Park paper, scattering them here and there.
jana-eubank-queen-co-zoo-layout-2-600
I filled the letters with all kinds of fun things: Donut Toppings, Diamond Topping, Sequin Sprinkles, and blue and green stars from the Fimo Fun Topping.
jana-eubank-queen-co-zoo-layout-3-600
My journaling about the day was placed below the title and then I decorated the top and bottom of the page with Green Stripe Trendy Tape, skinny glitter tape, Polka Blue Trendy Tape, and a few orange buttons. White pinwheels and blue petite posies add a bit more detail to the top and bottom corners of the page.

Thanks to the Circle Die Set, I was able to scrapbook this fun day even though I only had two photos to show for it!

Queen & Co: Magic & Birthday Layouts

Hi Guys! I’m up on the Queen & Company blog today with two projects!
One of our favorite places to go on vacation, like a lot of families, is Disneyland. The first time my daughter met the characters was completely magical. At the time she was shy around most adults, so it amazed us when she wasn’t afraid to meet her favorite characters.
Jana Eubank Queen & Co Magic Disney Layout 1 600
At the top of the page, I used the Magic Shaker Kit to create Mickey and Minnie mouse symbols. I cut them from black glitter cardstock and then backed them with red and yellow Delightful Dots papers. I filled the inside of the shapes with white Lollies, red and yellow buttons, red diamond topping, and black fimo fun stars. I added a red ribbon to the top of Minnie’s ears and adorned the bottom of the iconic shapes with blue flowers and a magic flair button.

The title was cut on my electronic die cutting machien from the Simple Stripes yellow paper. I added more flair and blue flowers to the title, as well. A few yellow pinwheels feel like pixie dust!

I cut the tickets from the Around the Park Mat Stack and tied them with Red Sparkle String. To the right of the tickets is a shaker Mickey glove. More pinwheels, flair, and flowers add lots of dimension and fun to this part of the page, as well.

Across the bottom of the page the photos rest on strips of patterned papers from the Around the Park Mat Stack, combined with some Magical Tape. Red and black rivets adorn each end of these decorative paper strips.

Sometimes it is hard to catch the excitement of a birthday celebration on a scrapbook page. Not any more! With the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set you can practically taste the sprinkles that are decorating the inside of this cake embellishment!

One of my favorite little details to add to titles is to replace the dot in the letter “i” with something decorative. Here I added a tiny blue petite posie.
There was an empty spot at the top of my page above the title. I simply filled it in with a strip of orange Simply Stripes Mat Stack paper, decorating the end with two green rivets.

Green twine and orange sparkle string dress up my photos, while a sprinkling of petite posies and pinwheels add a party feel to the right side of the page.

My favorite part of this page looks good enough to eat! Check out the slice of cake I created with the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set!
I cut the cake shape from blue and brown cardstock. I used scissors to trim out the “inside” of the cake … leaving just the frosting … and then adhered that frosting layer on top of the brown “chocolate” cake layer. I used a couple of Pom Flowers to the top of the cake for decoration.
Inside the cake are yellow, blue, and orange candy sprinkles toppings that look good enough to eat!

A few more yellow pinwheels and petite posies scattered around the cake add a fun feel.

Queen & Co.: Graduation Layout

Last year my daughter graduated from high school. What better way to scrapbook her graduation photo than to add a touch of the celebration to this page with the New Queen and Company Balloons Shaker Kit?!
jana-eubank-queen-co-celebrate-graduation-layout-1-600
Her high school colors are red and gray, but I die cut the balloon shapes in black to help them stand out fom everything else on the page. I filled the balloons with red Sparklers and several red toppings (sequin sprinkles, diamonds). I included the color gray, too, by adding in a dash of dark gray Neutral Pearlies Topping.
jana-eubank-queen-co-celebrate-graduation-layout-2-600
For the background, I punched several hexagon shapes from red and gray papers from the mat stacks. I then added a red flower buttons.
jana-eubank-queen-co-celebrate-graduation-layout-4-600
I brought the black color to the right side of the page by accenting her photo with a few of the stars from the Magic Ears Epoxy Icons set. I adhered the open star on the red Simple Stripes mat stack paper, and then cut around the sticker with scissors. The stars are accented by a sprinkling of white Petite Posies.
jana-eubank-queen-co-celebrate-graduation-layout-5-600
I cut the title for the page out of black cardstock using an electronic die cutting machine and then accented it with more epoxy stars and petite posies.

Finally, I accented all four edges of my layout with the silver skinny glitter tape.
