Last year, as I was shopping for Christmas presents, I stumbled across these adorable Espari dolls. I couldn’t get over how much they looked like my daughter and my niece. These two cousins are the best of friends … and so I thought it would be fun to give them the doppelganger doll of one another as a token of their friendship. They loved them!

I have been dying to use these poinsettia stamps by Stampin’ Up on a project … so I pulled them out to use on my first page with the Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits. (There are still a few left in Noel’s shop if you are interested in checking them out. The Oh, What Fun Classic Kit is HERE, and the Daily Diary Kit is HERE. )

My title was created using my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine. I cut it out twice using red and white cardstock so that I could create an offset shadow for the word.

Around the title I placed those adorable mini acrylic stars by Pretty Little Studio. They were included in the Classic Kit this month along with several script words. I used one of the words to accent the bottom left photo on this page.

My photos are stacked on top of each other with a red cardstock mat. I placed a few more 6×6 paper layers behind. I just love those mini patterns!

Here is a closer look at the stamped poinsettias I made using the Reason for the Season stamp set by Stampin’ Up. I stamped the outline in black ink. The stamp set comes with shadow stamps that make the leaves and the petals look shaded. I stamped them in red and green ink, and then used colored pencils in slightly different shades to finish filling them in. I love how they turned out!

Stashbusting: Creating Christmas Tags

jana-eubank-christmas-tags-group-7-600

Hi Friends! Do you love shopping for Christmas scrapbooking products? I know I do! And even though I have quite the collection to my name, I can’t help but pick up a few new things each year.

The problem is, my rate of acquiring scrapbook Christmas supplies, doesn’t quite match up with my Christmas creating output … and so they accumulate.

I have a hard time getting rid of them, because Christmas is just so classic! Christmas doesn’t go out of style … and I know one day, somewhere, somehow, I *WILL* put them to use!

This year, I made a goal to use up those older supplies, and one of the ways I am doing it is by creating Christmas Tags.

Here’s a video with more details explaining my process.

Pop in a Christmas movie and give it a try! Let’s join forces and flood the earth with cute, custom-made Christmas tags and put our stash to good use.

Happy creating!

Christmas Delivery Details 2 Enjoy Frame & a GIVEAWAY!

jana-eubank-carta-bella-christmas-delivery-details-2-enjoy-frame-photo-2-600

This week I have been working on getting our holiday decorations up all over the house. The Christmas music is blasting and the holiday ambiance is in full swing … I LOVE it!

This year, I added a new decoration to our decor … this darling Pocket Frame by Details 2 Enjoy!

jana-eubank-carta-bella-christmas-delivery-details-2-enjoy-frame-photo-5-600

Details 2 Enjoy were generous enough to send a few of us on the Echo Park Design Team a frame to play with. I received the Size C Pocket Frame … perfect for using with 12×12 scrapbook paper!

What is so cool about these frames? They are a shadow frame of sorts … the top piece of the frame is attached with magnets. You remove it to reveal two panels that slide in and out. These panels can be changed out whenever your heart desires … making these so much fun to decorate for seasons, holidays, different color schemes, etc.

Watch the video I made of the bare frame before I began my project to see what I mean.

I began my project by painting the frame with gold acrylic paint.

Next, I used the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery collection to decorate my frame.

jana-eubank-carta-bella-christmas-delivery-details-2-enjoy-frame-photo-2-600

I covered the inside panel with the dark green Border Strips paper with it’s pine pattern. Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut out the sentiment (Merry and Bright by Kristen Magee, Design #98879) in two papers; Natural White Linen Designer Cardstock and the red tone-on-tone pattern of the Black & Cream Plaid paper.

For the top hexagon shaped panel, I covered it in the beautiful Festive Florals paper . Then I used strips of the red Black & Cream Plaid paper to add a border to the hexagon opening.

The poinsettia flower was cut with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using an Echo Park Paper shape from the Silhouette Design Store (Poinsettia Design #48509). I cut the flower from the red side of the Black & Cream Plaid paper and the Scarlet Red Felt Designer Cardstock.

I spritzed the red flower shapes with dark red Glimmer Mist to give them a bit of a sheen. This will look so pretty in the twinkling Christmas lights at night, right?!

The leaves were cut from the green side of the Festive Florals paper.

I also cut several pine branches from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock using the Joyful Pine Die Set. I LOVE this die!!! It’s a must have for any Christmas project!

Doodlebug Design Flea Market

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-8

When I first saw the Doodlebug Design Flea Market collection, I knew I had to have it! I LOVE the colors … and all of the cute critters and icons are just so sweet!

I picked up this collection at a locally owned craft store and put it to work documenting our trip to the pumpkin patch last year. Here is what I came up with!

ADVENTURE AWAITS

First, I used one of the 4×6 cut apart cards as my title block, cutting out the tag shape from the card. Originally, in the lower left corner of the tag there is a stack of suitcases … since this wasn’t a travel page, I just covered those babies right up with the die cut trees.

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-adventure-awaits-layout-1

I strung together the pennant shapes from the die cut pack along with some acorn and corn on the cob die cuts.

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-adventure-awaits-layout-2

I added the matte enamel dots to some of the pennants for some tone-on-tone texture.

A doodle pop crow sits on top of the title … simply because he is CUTE! … Okay, and I also wanted to make sure I had a visual triangle of crows on the page. Hehe!

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-adventure-awaits-layout-3

I loved creating a little field scene at the bottom of my page with the sunflower, leaf, crow, and tractor die cuts.

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-adventure-awaits-layout-4

I added string around the crows’ necks to dress them up even more.

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-adventure-awaits-layout-5

The border strips came in super handy for the bottom of this page. I used the Say Cheese border to add color between the hexagon and woodgrain papers … and then you can also see the edge of the green border strip poking out at the bottom to add a bit of faux stitching.

This next on is a two-pager …

FALL BLESSINGS

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-1

For the background of this spread, I used the Merry Maples paper with the tone-on-tone leaf pattern.

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-2

Then I layered up several patterns for the middle section where all my photos were to go. Don’t you love that wood plank Barnwood paper capping off the top and bottom?! So cute!!!

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-3

My journaling gets spread across both pages in a step-down, stagger fashion, drawing your eye across the page. I accented the journaling on the left page with a cut apart sentiment, die cut clouds and the Fall Leaves Shapes Sprinkles.

The jar of sunflowers and little mouse accenting the photo or so cute here, too!

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-4

And of course you gotta add pumpkins when you are doing a page about the pumpkin patch!🙂

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-5jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-6

At the top right corner of the page I created another cluster of die cuts, Fall Leaves Shape Sprinkles, and the “Hello” cut apart sentiment (from the Vintage Type paper).

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-7

I had fun layering together several die cuts for the title. I stacked “Fall” on top of “Blessings” and then added in the pumpkin and mice. I also tied the three wheat stalks together as another fun accent.

jana-eubank-doodlebug-design-flea-market-fall-blessings-layout-8

I’m so happy I picked up these papers! They were so much fun to play with!

Thanks for coming by! I hope you have a lovely week!
