Stashbuster: St. Patrick’s Day Layout

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and I couldn’t resist scrapbooking my little leprechaun with the Echo Park Paper Lucky Charm mini theme from last year.

I used a few papers from my stash to build up my background and then placed a block of photos on top.

I placed my photos in opposite corners of a block of the rainbow side of the Lucky Charms Journaling Cards paper and then filled in the corners with the cut apart journaling cards and other patterned papers.

In the top right corner I dotted the letter I with white enamel dots, and added a piece of the clover side of the Lucky Charm Lucky Clover paper.

In the bottom right corner I typed my journaling  with a typewriter and then added it to a block of the script side of the Lucky Charm Lucky Clover paper.

I added a bit of washi tape, and some of the Lucky Charm stickers accented with Yellow Queen & Company Button Bouquet buttons.

My daughter left this cute and colorful note for our family on the morning of St. Patrick’s Day last year and I couldn’t resist taking a picture of it and adding it to this page. She is my holiday girl and dressed so cute in her green for the day!

Layout: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I bought so many cute winter collections this year, but haven’t had the time to use them! Before it gets too warm outside and I am no longer in the mood to scrap my winter photos I’m going to work on getting some of them done.

Here’s one from a winter drive we took as a family last year using the Winter Wonderland collection by Simple Stories.

BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

One of my favorite places in Utah is the Heber/Midway valley. I can’t tell you how many times we have driven by this covered bridge … I have ALWAYS wanted to stop and take a stroll across it, but we were always on our way to something and didn’t have the time. On this day, we finally did it! And you can bet I took a photo! Ha!

I pulled this embossed woodgrain paper from my stash to use as the base of my layout. It’s a paper called Front Desk from the Pebbles Fresh Goods collection from several years ago. It is pink on the other side, but I always thought this cream would make the prettiest background! It works awesome here as it reminds me of the texture of the wood the covered bridge is made of.

I cut out the word “COLD” from the 4×12 and 6×12 Elements paper and then used the letter stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet to spell out my title. The snowshoes were just too cute to resist using on this page (even though I haven’t gone snowshoeing in YEARS! Hmmm … I remember having fun doing that … I definitely need to do that again sometime soon).

Queen & Co.: Graduation Layout

Last year my daughter graduated from high school. What better way to scrapbook her graduation photo than to add a touch of the celebration to this page with the New Queen and Company Balloons Shaker Kit?!
jana-eubank-queen-co-celebrate-graduation-layout-1-600
Her high school colors are red and gray, but I die cut the balloon shapes in black to help them stand out fom everything else on the page. I filled the balloons with red Sparklers and several red toppings (sequin sprinkles, diamonds). I included the color gray, too, by adding in a dash of dark gray Neutral Pearlies Topping.

For the background, I punched several hexagon shapes from red and gray papers from the mat stacks. I then added a red flower buttons.

I brought the black color to the right side of the page by accenting her photo with a few of the stars from the Magic Ears Epoxy Icons set. I adhered the open star on the red Simple Stripes mat stack paper, and then cut around the sticker with scissors. The stars are accented by a sprinkling of white Petite Posies.

I cut the title for the page out of black cardstock using an electronic die cutting machine and then accented it with more epoxy stars and petite posies.

Finally, I accented all four edges of my layout with the silver skinny glitter tape.

Layout: Hipster Minnie

I started this page last month at a friend’s house and forgot about it. I pulled it out this weekend to add the final touches with items from my stash.

I love this picture of my Camryn. She has a collection of “hipster” sunglasses that she likes to wear. Really, they are just sunglasses that she has poked the lenses out of, but I love that she likes to wear them and add other accessories, like Minnie Mouse ears, to create cute outfits. Do you remember those days of putting something fun or silly on, and wearing it proudly?! I love that about this age and stage, and sad that we don’t embrace that confidence more as adults. 🙂 We should always walk with confidence and love who we are. Don’t you agree?

The base of this page is my LAST sheet of grid paper by Scenic Route that I have had in my stash forever. If you remember Scenic Route, you are probably sentimental about their papers like I am. 🙂

The rest of the patterned and solid papers come from the gorgeous Felicity Jane Emeline collection.

The tab, circle heart and star, “These Moments” phrase sticker, and “Happy” banner are also from the Felicity Jane Emeline kit.

I used some gold foil stickers by Crate Paper for the title. I stitched through the letters because the adhesive on these isn’t that great and I didn’t want them falling off in my book … plus, stitching looks cute, right?!!

jana-eubank-felicity-jane-emeline-hipster-minnie-layout-2-600

The house die cut is from a Project Life die cut pack by American Crafts. I surrounded the title and this cute little house with puffy stickers by Seven Paper. That darling epoxy arrow is an older item from Freckled Fawn. So cute!

I added more stitching around the photo and the edge of the paper and then added some Teresa Collins Designs photo corners.
