Close to My Heart: This is Me Layout

I hope you are having a great week! I’m back with a page using the October Craft with Heart “Homegrown” kit. (Click here to find out more information about the Craft with Heart subscription kit, or contact your Close to My Heart consultant.)

I decided to create a single page layout with my supplies to document how I transitioned when my daughter went away to college. (Butterflies always make great page accents on layouts about learning and growing … Don’t you think?!)

THIS IS ME

Jana Eubank Close To My Heart Craft with Heart October 2018 This is Me 1 600

I used the left page of one of the two page layouts for the base of my page. The strips criss-crossing the page were already printed on the paper, I simply added stitching using my sewing machine and black thread.

The used the gold grid scalloped die cut to house my photo, and then added the gray 4×6 journaling card behind the yellow grid paper as an additional paper layer.

I then combined the flowers and butterflies from both of the layout kits onto this page in a diagonal line across the design.

The title stickers for this page were “This is Us.” I ommitted the word “us” and added the word “Me” using chipboard letters from my stash (these are some oldies-but-goodies by BasicGrey).

For additional dimension, I added layered punched flowers and buttons on top of the flower die cuts.

The page had black spray mist already printed on the background paper, but I added more mist in a light gray along the diagonal line of butterflies and flowers to tie everything together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This collection has a bit of a spooky, vintage vibe that I thought would be perfect to scrapbook my son and his friend.

WILL DO TRICKS FOR TREATS

I fussy-cut the big spider from the cut-apart sheet and then added a few die cut spiderwebs using a metal die from my stash.

I also fussy-cut the witch from the cut-apart cards and used her to accent the title block.

I clustered several stickers here to accent the bottom right corner of the photos and add my date.

The solid black pinstripe paper made the perfect background!

BOOTIFUL

This next page features my daughter in her Gypsy costume!

I used the cream pinstripe background for this page. I also pulled the Carta Bella Give Thanks & Leaves Die Set from my stash to cut several leaves as page accents.

A cluster of three circular elements in different sizes accent the left side of the page. The pumpkin circle was punched from the cut-apart sheet, while the other two circles came from the sticker sheet.

I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut the title for the page (Bootiful Day by Lilium Pixel SVG #274167). I used a stamp from my stash to create the circular journal block and then added texture to the bottom edge of the photo block with a notebook paper border punch.

The final magical touch I used black gems from my stash in a few places around the page.

Echo Park Paper: Beware

I have spent the early part of this week in my scrapbook room playing with all of the Halloween collections in my stash. It’s been so much fun! I’m catching up on a lot of pages and getting pumped up for my favorite holiday at the same time. I’ll be sharing these pages with you over the next week or so.

The first one feature the adorable Echo Park Paper Bewitched collection. I thought the florals in this collection were the perfect accent for this page of my daughter and her friend dressed as gypsies last Halloween!

Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Bewitched Beware Layout 1 600

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine and a cut file by Echo Park (Design #214711) for the title. I replaced the letter “a” with the owl sticker and added a witch hat sticker to the letter “b.”

I love when journaling cards have interesting shapes on them to cut out and use as layers. Here, I used one of the cards from the Journaling Cards paper to the left of the photos. It was the perfect spot to anchor the potion bottle, candy, jar and butterfly stickers, too!

I cut the floral/stripe border from the Border Strips paper to use at the bottom, and cut a large circle from the Phantom Pumpkins paper to highlight the main photo. A couple of cute pumpkins and other stickers accent the photos along the bottom.

The purple damask paper is the B side of the Trick or Treat paper and was the perfect pattern to bring everything together on the gray cardstock background.

More Stashbusting with PageMaps Sketches: Part 2

As we head into the weekend, I wanted to share the final pages I created with the October sketches at PageMaps. I’ve had the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection hanging out in my stash for over a year and decided to get it used up. These sketches were the perfect way to put this collection to use and I love the result!

FAMILY CHALLENGE

One summer my husband and I challenged our kids not to drink soda for a cash reward. They did it, but as you can see in these photos, they were pretty happy to have their soda back at the end of the summer. Haha!

HEY, HEY, HEY

My daughter went to a day camp one summer with her best friend. This snapshot of her in her camp t-shirt was the only thing I had to remember the occasion. My daughter detailed the events of her camp in her personal journals, so a quick page about her experience was all that was needed for our family scrapbook.

Now that the weekend is upon us, do YOU have plans to do a little scrapbooking? Grab an older collection from your stash and challenge yourself to create as many pages as you can with it. The sketches at PageMaps are a great way to get you going!

Happy scrapping to you!
