Simple Stories: Happy Easter

Helloooo! Happy Easter to you! It’s been a while since I’ve created something that I can share publicly here on my blog, but I’m happy to say that I have an Easter layout to share with you today using the adorable Simple Stories Hip Hop Hooray collection!

Scrapbooking has been my way of coping with this crazy, coronavirus time warp of a Twilight Zone we are all living in right now and I’m so grateful for how therapeutic it feels. I will try and find time to share everything I have been making, but I will definitely share my favorites. 🙂

HAPPY EASTER

These are some individual shots I took of my kids on Easter Sunday four years ago. It’s crazy how much my kids have changed since then! Wow!

I opted to place each photo in white cardstock frames that I cut using my Silhouette die cutting machine. I placed an additional layer of patterned paper and small strips of washi tape behind some of the photos, and wrapped others with twine.

I placed the photos in a grid on the page, and filled the two ’empty’ frames with elements from the collection.  I also stitched around these frames to add texture and popped them up with foam tape for depth.

This one features a pair of cute buzzing bees accenting the rainboot 3×4 Element Card, a tab sticker (Combo Sticker Sheet), and the ‘Spring Fever’ banner along the bottom.

I used the ’empty’ frame in the bottom row as a spot for a springtime scene and my title. I love how the yellow Decorative Brad adds a bit of detail to the sun die cut (Bits & Pieces)!

My family, like yours, won’t be dressing up for church this Easter Sunday, but we will still think about the beautiful reason for this holiday, our brother and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love Him! I’m always grateful for Him and his loving sacrifice for each and every one of us.

Doodlebug: There’s No Place Like HOME

Only have one photo for a page? Try creating a larger-than-life title to fill the rest of your layout like I did below on this fun page using the Doodlebug Simply Spring collection.

Jana Eubank Doodlebug Simply Spring Home 1 900

I wanted to scrapbook this photo of my oldest and youngest daughters hanging out together at home, and thought it would be fun to use the Cozy Cottage Doodle-pop Sticker in place of one of the letters in the word “HOME.”

I die cut the large letters using an electronic die cutting machine and then placed the Cozy Cottage sticker on layered circles in place of the letter “O.” The remaining letters are accented with the May Flowers Sprinkles.

I had several scraps of patterned papers left over from a previous project. I layered them together behind my photo for more color. I placed a pair of Sunny Skies Cute Clips at the top left corner of the photo even more dimension.

The flowers in the bottom right corner of the photo were created using the Garden Flowers Craft Kit. I scored the leaves and added Glitter Sprinkles to the flower centers.

I capped the top of the page off with a sunny, scalloped border sticker from the This & That Sticker sheet

… and then added two colors of pink heart Sprinkles around the page for a lovey-dovey feel.

Doodlebug: Easter Pancakes

As our extended families grow larger and larger, it can be difficult to alight schedules to get together for holiday dinners. Some years, we have opted to gather on a Saturday morning for an Easter pancake breakfast.

Today I am using the darling Doodlebug Hoppy Easter Collection, along with a pair of cut files to create the page below!

This sweet bunny hugging his carrot is so adorable! I used the Petite Print Rainbow 6×6 Paper Pads on the colored portions of the design. I then layered several of the Odds & Ends grass die cuts together to give him a place to sit. How cute are the Jellies Sprinkles hidden here-and-there?! The clouds were created with vellum and white cardstock using a Simply Spring Cloud cut file.

On the right side of the page are a pair of chicks from the Odds & Ends pack. I added pink chalked cheeks to each one, just like the paper pieced bunny.

I placed the title at the bottom of the page below the journaling. I used the “Easter” word sticker from the Icons Sticker Sheet along with layered Swimming Pool and Lily White Abigail Letter Stickers. The left side of the title is accented with the too-cute-for-words Flower Basket Doodle-pop Sticker.

Creating the die cut bunny and clouds for this page was so much fun! Have you given the Doodlebug Cut Files a spin lately?

Happy April! New sketches are up at PageMaps.com and they are AMAZING!!! (as always! *wink*)

Here is the page I created!

SHARK ATTACK

Jana Eubank PageMaps April 2019 Shark Attack 1 800

These photos are from several years ago when the kids and I visited the Museum of Ancient Life. My kids had a blast posing with the giant shark head protruding out from one of the displays and I crack up every time I see their facial expressions in these pictures.

I pulled out some items from my stash for this page. I used mostly the 2014 collection by Carta Bella Paper called Ahoy There and also utilized a variety of other scraps from other manufacturers for the photo mat.

This shark was created with the “Shark” cut file by Echo Park Paper (#248695 in the Silhouette Design Store).

I created the title with the letter stickers from the Ahoy There collection and a font called Kaushan Script.
