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

jana-eubank-queen-co-celebrate-graduation-layout-2-600
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?!!

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.

Maya Road Guest Blogger: 2016 Family Christmas Ornament

jana-eubank-maya-road-2016-family-christmas-ornament-3-600

Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another Maya Road project to share with you today!

2016 FAMILY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT

Maya Road sent me the cutest little 6×6 DIY Mini Wood Pallet. When I saw it, I just knew I had to create something with it! I pondered on it and decided that it would make the cutest ornament for our Christmas tree featuring our family photo.

First, I added gold and white 6×6 patterned papers from the Echo Park Deck the Halls collection.

jana-eubank-maya-road-2016-family-christmas-ornament-1-600

I had the gold ribbon and snowflake sitting on my desk from a gift that my sweet friend had just dropped by to me and was inspired to re-purpose them on this project. I knotted each end of the ribbon and then hot glued it to the sides of the mini pallet to use as the hanger.

Next, I added our family photo matted with white cardstock. To the right of the photo, I added the glitter snowflake accented with a stamped/embossed circle in the center.

I created the circle with the Homemade Holidays Clear Stamp Set by Maya Road, stamping and embossing the circle and “Joy” in gold and white embossing powder.

I accented the bottom corner of the photo with a Maya Road Metal Arrow and Bird Cage emellishment.

I added the year to the top of the ornament using the Maya Road Number Clips attached to Maya Road Linen Mini Pennant Banner Pieces. So cute, right?! To the right side of the year banner I added one of the Metal Royal Key Charms to dress it up even more. So pretty!

I love the way the ornament looks hanging on our tree! The gold/white color scheme matches perfectly!
