Close to My Heart: Hooray for Today

Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another video featuring the second layout I created using the Close to My Heart January 2019 Kits.

Each monthly kit includes two double-page layouts with the instructions, stickers, die cuts, and sheet protectors to complete those layouts. I used most of the stickers and die cuts on the layout I posted on Monday. So, for today’s page I decided to create my own quilled flower embellishments using the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts Dies. Watch the video to see how!

HOORAY FOR TODAY

I also used the title as inspiration for all of the circles across the top of the page — I wanted it to feel like a party! Can  you see where I added stamping, embossing, and dimensional dots, as well?!

Two-Page Layout: Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

I’ve loved playing with the Simple Stories Forever Fall collection this year. Today I have a two-page layout featuring family photos from our Thanksgiving dinner last year.

GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE

Jana Eubank Simple Stories Forever Fall Gobble Two Page Layout 1 600

DESIGN TIP:  Look to bring in additional patterns by taking a cue from the elements in the collection you are working with. Some of the leaves and pumpkins in this collection had a newsprint pattern, so I decided to pull in a text patterned paper from my stash. I used it to die cut my title words and the leaves across the top of the page.

I used the Gobble, Gobble, Gobble cut file by Loni Stevens found in the Silhouette Design Store (#22530) to create the title block behind my family photo. It was fun to add little accents of chipboard and die cuts from the Bits & Pieces pack in the openings of the letters.

DESIGN TIP: Try looking for pattern cues in your photos. My dad was wearing a plaid shirt on this day, so I decided to mat these photos with the plaid Pumpkin Everything paper. It subtly ties the left side of the layout together with the pattern of my dad’s shirt on the right side of the layout.

I also used the plaid heart sticker on the journal block above the photo of my parents to bring in a bit of that plaid again.

Finally, here is a closer look of the leaf border across the top of both pages. I simply used some metal leaf dies from my stash, adhering them lightly with liquid glue to keep them in place while I stitched through them with my sewing machine.

After stitching through them, I fluffed up the edges of the leaves for a bit more texture.

Don’t forget to take family photos this year at your Thanksgiving dinner. It’s the perfect time to grab a shot of your family for your annual Christmas card!

It’s been awhile since I have used dictionary/text style paper on a project. It was a lot of fun! Will you give it a try on your next project?
