Echo Park: Iao Valley

jana-eubank-jungle-safari-iao-vallen-layout-2-600
Last summer my family and I were able to visit the beautiful island of Maui in Hawaii. One of my favorite places we hiked while we were there was the Iao Valley. The Echo Park Paper Jungle Safari collection was perfect for documenting this amazing experience!

I had lots of photos for this page, so I decided to print them out smaller and line them up in a row along the top of the page. I added them to the blue patterned side of the Jungle Map paper, and then placed the yellow dot Jungle Fun Paper on the bottom two-thirds of the page. A striped border (Jungle Stripes Paper) separates the two.

I love when a collection has a design I can cut out and use in my design! I hand cut several of the leaves from the Canopy Leaves Paper, tucking them in along the bottom edge of the striped paper strip. I love the tropical feel this adds to the page along with the flower accents from the Element Sticker sheet and Chipboard accents!

I used the Alpha Stickers for my title at the bottom of the page, decorating the letter “O” with the floral circle sticker placed behind it. A few more stickers and the cute chipboard parrot add even more tropical flair!

Noel Mignon: JOY

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-joy-layout-6

It has been so nice to be able to spend time with my family this week … it’s my favorite thing about Christmas Break! And it is also the topic of my page today.

JOY

This is my last page with the Noel Mignon “Oh What Fun” kit and also my last page with the design team. I have LOVED being on Noel’s team and will continue to love and support her kits, but it is time for me to open up some time for new opportunities and new goals. Thank you, Noel, for inspiring me with your gorgeous kits! I have loved the time I have spent designing with them!

Starting Christmas Eve, we get to just BE together. We open presents, laugh at what picked out for each other, take lots of pictures, eat, giggle, make jokes, … and just MAKE MEMORIES.

It is my favorite part of the season. Everything is DONE. And we can just enjoy one another.

I used both of the Noel Mignon December Oh What Fun kits on this page, and had fun clustering lots of little bits together.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-joy-layout-3

I made this tag look like a present by adding a die cut bow (Stampin’ Up Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies) to the top. The other two elements are cut aparts … that look like a stack of letters to Santa.

I couldn’t resist using those two big, beautiful, gorgeously-red, poinsettia blooms together on this page. I used the AWESOME, Must-Have dies by Stampin’ Up to add greenery around the flowers (Stampin’ Up Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies). Just so pretty!

I hope you have been enjoying your week with your family!

See you again very soon!

Noel Mignon: Christmas Cookies

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-christmas-cookies-3

Are you ready for Santa to come down your chimney in a few days? Have you made or bought your favorite Christmas cookie to share with him?

My page today is about our family’s tradition of baking gingerbread cookies every year.

CHRISTMAS COOKIES

I used both of the December Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits on this page, pulling out the whimsical elements and using a cheery color scheme of pink, red, green, white, and tan … the colors of a gingerbread house!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-christmas-cookies-1

The puffy stickers from the kit kind of remind me of piped icing on a fancy Christmas cookie with their shiny, squishy appearance. I made sure to sprinkle lots of those cute puffy stickers around the page.

I cut the two gingerbread people from a 3×4 cut apart journal card from the Holly Jolly collection by Pebbles. I created a little candy cluster with them next to the title pairing them with the candy cane die cut. The candy cane is accented with two punched holly leaves, using my favorite Holly Berry Builder punch by Stampin’ Up.

The brown accent color gets sprinkled in two other places around the page to form a visual triangle … the brown wood veneer shape at the top of the page …

… and the cute reindeer die cut shape accenting the journal block.

I had so much fun adding all kinds of little bits on this page! My kids may like to enjoy decorating gingerbread cookies … but scrapbook pages are more *MY* speed. Hehe!

Merry Christmas!

Noel Mignon: Holiday Party

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-holiday-party-3

Are you gearing up for your holiday parties? Or maybe you have already attended several this year? Today I’m scrapping some photos from my family’s 2015 Christmas dinner.

HOLIDAY PARTY

This week on the Noel Mignon blog the design team is “Wrapping It Up!” by using both ribbon and tape … washi tape … on our projects … just like we would on holiday gifts!

Here is my take on the challenge using the December “Oh, What Fun” kits.

I used a sheet of Echo Park I Love Christmas Peace On Earth paper as the background for this page. That tone-on-tone pattern is so pretty!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-holiday-party-1

Next, I pulled in all kinds of Simple Stories papers to layer up on top. That cute Christmas gingham paper has the pine pattern on the back … I just had to use both patterns here, they look so cute together!

I also added a length of plaid Fancy Pants washi tape across the top of the gingham paper strip.

Next, I fussy-cut several flowers to use as page accents … I had so much fun tucking them in here-and-there that I almost forgot about the journaling.

Tabbed cards to the rescue! I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut them from cream cardstock, typed the journaling on one of them, and then tucked it behind the layers. I used Echo Park stickers to decorate the tabs.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-holiday-party-3

I added a little dimension to the flat fussy-cut flowers by placing three red glitter, dots on top of the red printed dots. The glitter dots come from the red glitter Thickers included with the kit.

I used the same glitter Thickers to spell out half of my title. The “holiday” word comes from the Fancy Pants puffy sticker sheet.

How pretty is that green shimmer ribbon. I love how it looks here tied around the photo.
