American Crafts: Sunshine & Good Times collection

If it’s gray and cold where you live today, why not take a break from it all, pull out some photos from the summertime, and use them to create a scrapbook page using the brand new Amy Tangerine Sunshine & Good Times collection? Yesterday, I was up on the American Crafts blog sharing this page I created about our family’s favorite vacation treat last summer … Hawaiian Shaved Ice!
I began this page by pulling out several of the blue and green patterned papers from this collection and placing various sizes of rectangles on a background of white cardstock. I then used my sewing machine to add stitching to several of the blocks for more texture.
The monochromatic background allows the pink and gold title, as well as the other colorful accents to POP off of the page!
I loved that little “Yes, Please” phrase sticker from the Sticker Book and couldn’t resist adding it to this page about our favorite treat in Hawaii … Hawaiian shaved ice!
The fruit die cuts clustered around the bottom of the photo remind me of all of the different flavors we sampled.
And that puffy, inflated rainbow ephemera!!! … PERFECT for a page about Hawaii, since the afternoon rain showers produced one for us to enjoy on almost a daily basis!

I hope you’re having a great week!

Echo Park Paper: Create

I love when a paper collection comes out that celebrates all things crafty! The new I’d Rather Be Crafting collection by Echo Park Paper is so much fun! I’ve been wanting to add something fresh to my scrapbook room decor and decided to use this collection to create today’s project.
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Crafting CREATE Letters 1 600
I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut out the CREATE letters from Carta Bella’s Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock. Once assembled the letters measure 5″ in height, the perfect size for using the 6×6 patterned papers to decorate!

I chose a variety of papers, layering patterns over solids. I used the Frames & Tags EphemeraElements Stickers, and 6×12 Chipboard pieces as accents on each letter.

I used the Enamel Dots to add dimension to each flower center and then also sprinkled among a couple of the embellishment clusters.

These turned out so cute! I have a small window sill in my office that these are going to look great on!

Echo Park Paper: Wedding Gazebo Gift Box

I love a beautiful outdoor wedding in the summertime! Create a crisp, white gazebo adorned with flowers to collect wedding cards at your next wedding celebration … or maybe even use this as a special gift box! The Echo Park Paper Wedding Bliss collection is perfect for this!

I created the box using the Carta Bella Paper Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock and the gorgeous papers from the Wedding Bliss collection. I cut the Gazebo Cut File (Winter Gazebo by using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine.

I wanted the top of the gazebo to really catch your eye, so I used the Wedding Floral Paper with its beautiful gold foil accents. I added detail to the edges by embossing white cardstock with the Dainty Damask embossing folder.
Next, I created some big, beautiful flowers  and a Mini Paper Fan to use as a focal point on the roof. The flowers were cut using the Rose Flower – Small Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #193699 in the Silhouette Design Store). The leaves are from the Flower Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #192286 in the Silhouette Design Store).
I tucked in a couple of tags from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack for even more interest.

For the windows I used the Easter Vellum Dot Paper in Blush Bunny. I adhered it “inside out” so that the dots were a more subtle pink. I fussy-cut the banners from the Forever and Always Paper to form a swag all the way around the gazebo, adding in a couple of lengths of pearl strands for more dimension.
I punched the flowers from the Lt. Pink/Pink Coordinating Solid paper and then added enamel dots for the flower centers.

The box opens up so that you can place electronic lights inside, if you would like. Here you can see the vellum adhered to the inside of the box with the pattern facing inwards.

I added the “Bride & Groom” sticker and heart stickers to the doorway. Look how cute it looks all lit up in the dark!

On the bottom portion of the box, I created another cluster of embellishments with more die cut leaves and two more Mini Paper Fans. I added a couple of enamel dots to the center of one of the paper fans for a bit of shine. I added the “I Do” sticker to the center of the other one.

Another great use for this project would be to use it as a centerpiece of a table; either at a wedding, on a small table along with the guest book, or maybe as a fun decoration for a bridal shower. There are so many possibilities!

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!
