Carta Bella Paper: Hamoa Beach Layout

jana-eubank-flora-hamoa-beach-layout-photo-3-600
I love floral papers and the Carta Bella Flora No. 1 collection is full of them! I especially love it when the flower pattern is large enough to allow me to fussy-cut individual flowers to use as accents on my page … and that is exactly what I have done on my project today for the Echo Park Paper Blog!

The flowers of the Petunia Patch Bundle paper reminded me of all of the tropical flowers we enjoyed on our vacation to Maui last year. I thought they would be the perfect touch to add to this page of our family’s trip to a beach.

I used detail scissors to cut out several flowers and then tucked them in sprays behind my photos. I love the way the colors pop against the green of the Lily Meadow Spray background paper.

I used vertical strips of the Rose Garden Wreath and Petunia Patch Garland papers to anchor my column of photos and add to the tropical vibe of the page. I love the way this one came together!

Stashbuster: Eleanor Roosevelt & Friends

jana-eubank-eleanor-roosevelt-layout-3-600

Catchy title for a page, no?! Ha ha! In third grade my daughter did a school report about Eleanor Roosevelt. As part of their learning, the class got to make marionette puppets of the person they were studying. At the end of the year they put on a presentation for the parents. They did a great job!

jana-eubank-eleanor-roosevelt-layout-1-600

I used mostly American Crafts Oh, Happy Life papers on this page, mixing in a few oldies from My Mind’s Eye (yellow chevron) and another American Crafts paper (red polka dots from Soho Garden — if I’m remembering right). When purging papers from my stash, I hardly ever get rid of basic patterns like chevrons and polka dots … a polka dot is a polka dot, right? These kinds of patters ALWAYS mix in with other collections really well.

For page accents, I used an old Crate Paper Chipboard floral sticker, some red chipboard labels by American Crafts, and some floral die cuts from the Pebbles Homegrown collection. They all play really nicely together!

I typed my journaling on the computer, printed it out on white cardstock and adhered it right to the chipboard labels.

Bella Blvd. February Guest Designer

jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-4-600

This month I am the Guest Designer on the Bella Blvd. Blog. I have always loved Bella Blvd’s products and had a great time playing with three of their current collections.

This first page.features two of my daughters and the You Are Loved Illustrated Faith collection.

I used white cardstock as the base of my layout, spritzing it with a bit of teal spray mist, stitching the edges and matting it with a couple of the patterned papers before adding my photos and the other elements.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-2-600
I used the Heavens Paper to set off my main photo and then added  a couple of pennants, clear cuts, and a die cut flower to the bottom.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-3-600
On the left side of my page, I used the letter stickers to spell out my title, stitching the letters down with my sewing machine for a little more texture.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-4-600
At the bottom of my page, I added a clear cut flower and a clear cut XOXO border, that I also added stitching to.

I have had this next photo waiting for the perfect papers to scrap it with for a few years now … I was delighted to receive the Barnyard Collection and knew it would be perfect for this fun memory about my daughter dressing up as a farmer for Career Day at her school
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-1-600
At the top of the page, I layered a couple of the cloud die cuts along with some pennants and hearts to give the sun in the corner a little more dimension. I added red gems to the hearts for a bit of sparkle.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-2-600
For the title, I used the “Smile” acrylic word along the bottom of my photo. I accented the left side with a broccoli die cut and radish puffy sticker.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-3-600
In the bottom right corner of the page, I used die cuts to cover up the pre-printed pattern and create my own little dimensional farm scene. How cute is that chicken and bushel of apples?! I added my journaling on journaling strips created with my computer and sprinkled in a few punched hearts adorned with red gems.

I love how happy and bright this page turned out!

The final page I have for you today features the adorable Secrets of the Sea Collection.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-1-600
A few years ago we visited the Outerbanks of North Carolina. And even though the beach was literally across the street, my kids and their cousins seemed to prefer the ease of the swimming pool. I think it was nice to have snacks and shade just a few footsteps away, and they also enjoyed now having sand everywhere. LOL!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-2-600
To draw focus to my main photo, I placed the title along the bottom edge along with a little ocean scene created with the die cuts, stickers, and puffy stickers.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-3-600
I ADORE the embossed nature of the puffy stickers and couldn’t resist sprinkling those darling, little blue fish everywhere!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-4-600
I placed the larger photos in a vertical column on the page, using one of the 4×6 cut apart cards to ground my journaling strips.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-5-600
The clips, die cuts, and fish puffy sticker were perfect for adorning the “empty” corners of my photo.

Queen & Co: Hello Cutie Layout

jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-4-600
My first Queen & Co. project is up on the Queen & Co. Blog! With three daughters in my home, I knew the Queen & Co. Heart Throb kit would be the perfect fit for creating something about my girls.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-1-600
I selected these photos of my daughter on her birthday last year and used her shirt as inspiration for my title. I used the acrylic “hello” script word from the kit along with letters I cut (using the ZP Periwinkle font by Lettering Delights) from glitter paper using my electronic die cut machine.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-2-600
I cut the 6×6 papers into strips and then adhered them to the page side by side, disguising the seams behind my photos. The horizontal bands help give the photos a place to “rest.”
I typed my journaling on a journal card that I pulled from my stash. Here is a closer look at what it says.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-3-600
My favorite part of this page is at the bottom where I had fun playing with the shaker elements of the kit. I die cut the bottom heart from pink cardstock (border) and the blue/white striped paper (insert) from the 6×6 Heart Throb paper pad.
Next, I created a dimensional shaker heart, using the gray floral paper for the background, and pink glitter paper for the border. Inside I added the large pink sequins, small white sequins, the dark pink heart toppings, the blue floral toppings, and a sprinkle of the new diamond topping. You always need to add a little sparkle and shine to a girl’s page, right?!
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-4-600
I added the “Love You Forever” sentiment sticker across the top of the heart with foam squares. The page is finished off with a sprinkling of heart sequins and enamel dots around the hearts and title. So cute!
