Carta Bella: Creating an Out of This World Lunch Box!

jana-eubank-carta-bella-space-academy-lunch-box-1-600
The Carta Bella Space Academy collection reminded me of that bygone era of metal lunch boxes decorated with a child’s favorite hero. The adorable space cadets were just perfect to use as the focal point of this project!
I used the lunch box cut file from the Miss Baker’s Classroom SVG Set by SVGCuts.com.
The front of the box has an acetate window allowing a mysterious peek at the yummy contents inside. I created a dimensional scene on the front of the window by using a combination of the the Ephemera die cuts, Tags & Frames Ephemera Die cuts, and several of the stickers popped up on different layers of foam squares. I added gems to the centers of the star stickers for a little twinkle.

The attached lid closes by latching onto a raised, silver brad. The hinged handle is also constructed with brads. I love the way the silver accents add an authentic, industrial look to this project!

Boys of all ages would get a kick out of this project. It would make a really fun party favor for your space rangers, as well. Have fun creating!

Echo Park Paper: Christmas Ornament with Deck the Halls

The first thing I want to do when decorating my home for the holidays is put up the Christmas tree! The twinkling lights and glittering ornaments immediately put me in the mood for the Christmas season.

For my ornament today, I am using the Deck the Halls collection. I love the gold foil accents included throughout … and thought it would be perfect for catching the light and adding a bit of shimmer to our tree.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-3-600
First, I created a frame ornament base using the Festive Plaid Paper, with it’s shimmering gold foil lines, for the outer frame. The blue snowy background of the Border Strips Paper is the perfect backdrop for the Christmas tree sticker from the Element Sticker sheet.
I cut the frame ornament using my Silhouette Cameo machine and a cut file from the Spirits of Christmas Past SVG Kit by SVGCuts.com.

On top of the tree, I placed the “Merry” chipboard sticker. Below the tree the “Tis’ the Season” chipboard sticker, accented with a holly sticker, gives the tree something to rest on.

My favorite part of this ornament has got to be the floral cluster at the top. I die cut several holly leaves (Floral Holly Die Set) from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock to place behind the chipboard sticker. The lighter green berry sprigs were created using the Autumn Leaves Die Set and the green side of the Festive Plaid Paper.

For more dimension, I used the Floral Holly Die Set again to cut a couple of poinsettia flowers from Scarlet Red Designer Cardstock. The center of the flower gets a little sparkle and shine with the glittery gold enamel dots.

I can’t wait to place this ornament on my Christmas tree this year! It’s the perfect little vignette of what I love about the season … a glittering Christmas tree against softly falling snow.

Echo Park Paper: I Love Winter Ice Skates

There is something so magical about wintertime that captures my heart. The sparkling of the sun on freshly fallen snow, the glistening of icicles, the scent of fireplaces keeping homes warm and cozy. I love it! Winter brings back memories of playing outside in the snow for hours with my siblings, the excitement of sledding down a hill, and studying the way my boots made impressions in the slush and snow as I walked home from school.
Now that I’m older I get excited for a new kind of winter fun … being inside, all cozy in my home, with a hot cup of cocoa and a table full of fun papercrafting supplies!

You can bring the magic of winter to a corner of your home with this fun project I’m sharing with you today. I used the “I Love Winter” collection to create a pair of paper skates. I plan on hanging these on our coat rack, but they would also be cute hanging on a door knob, a chest of drawers, or even in a window.
Do you know someone who is battling the winter blues? Fill these skates up with hot cocoa, marshmallows, and chocolate for a warm, winter hello and leave them hanging on their front door as a fun surprise. I know *I* would love it if someone left something like this for ME!
jana-eubank-i-love-winter-ice-skates-2-600
The skates were created with my Silhouette Cameo machine and a cut file from the Winter Gazebo collection by SVGCuts.com. I cut the base of the project out using the Ultra White Felt and Charcoal Grey Linen Designer Cardstocks.
Next, I added decorative paper. I used the tone-on-tone white pattern of the Chilly Day Paper for the sides, the woodgrain 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper for accents, and the striped Warm Wishes Paper for the blades.

Finally, I used all kinds of cute accents from the Element Stickers, Chipboard Accents, Ephemera die cuts, and Decorative Brads to decorate the sides of the skates. I love that each skate has it’s own personality.

What are you waiting for? It’s the perfect time of year to pull out your craft supplies and spend a cozy afternoon inside creating something just for fun … just because.

Happy crafting!

In the top left corner I created a floral cluster. I used the Dimensional Flowers cut files by Lettering Delights for the flowers. The branches were cut using the Carta Bella Paper Outdoor Branch Die Set (The Great Outdoors collection).

In the lower right corner of the box, I created a cute scene using die cuts and stickers from the I Love Famly collection, the Echo Park Stitched Circle dies (circle), Carta Bella Outdoor Branch dies (branches), the Mister Fox die (fox), and the Fall Is in the Air Die set (mushrooms). A few buttons sprinkled here and there add a homespun touch.
