Noel Mignon: Feeding the Birds

Hello webbie friends! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog this week with my final page for the month using the All Fall kits.

This week the design team is challenging ourselves to create a project using the following recipe: 1 sheet of cardstock, 2 alphabets, 3 photos, 4 patterned papers, and 5 embellishments.

Here is what I came up with!

FEEDING THE BIRDS

First, let me tell you a little bit about these photos. A few summers ago, Mr. Owen found three lost baby birds in our neighborhood. He was so worried about them, so he carefully scooped them up in a large bucket from our garage and brought them to our back patio, where he could watch over them (he was worried the neighbor’s cat would eat them) and feed them every few hours.

He faithfully fed those little birds all weekend long until we noticed that the mother had found them and had started to bring food to them, as well! I was so proud of Owen’s caring heart and diligence in his bird-sitting!

I began this page with a sheet of white cardstock from my stash. I recently ordered these fun Stampin’ Up stamps and wanted to build a background with them for this page. (Stamps used are Watercolor Wash background stamp and Gorgeous Grunge. I used them with Stampin’ Up Tip Top Taupe ink)

I love the look of artsy backgrounds … but am not very good at creating them. Thank heavens for brilliant companies who create products that help me get a similar look! Woohoo!

While I was creating this page … the song “Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins kept playing in my mind … so, that is what I used for my title! I used the two alphabets that were included in the Noel Mignon All Fall Classic Kit. I especially love those dark yellow tile letter stickers by Pretty Little Studio… so cute!

For my three photos, I had one of Owen feeding the birds, one of the baby birds all snuggly in their bucket, and then I was lucky enough to get a shot of the mother bird feeding them as well.

Three of the four patterned papers were used in strips as a band across the page. I used the fourth patterned paper to mat my photos.

For the five embellishments, I used five chipboard leaves from the Noel Mignon All Fall Daily Diary kit … I REALLY tried to leave it to those five leaves, but couldn’t resist popping in one of the wood circle embellishments from the Classic kit, and also a few gold photo corners from my stash. I’m not counting the journal card (All Fall Daily Diary kit) or the glitter dots (these were from the Thicker Alpha sticker sheet, so they can go towards being a part of the two alphas, right?! Boo-yah!).

This was such a fun challenge and forced me to focus on adding supplies to my project in a very purposeful way. Give it a try! I think you’ll enjoy it!

Thank you so much for coming by today!

Noel Mignon: Fall

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-6

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday this weekend in the USA, I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for YOU! Thank you for reading my posts, your kinds comments, support, and for inspiring me to keep creating. I love the online scrapbook community! You are all just such lovely people! Thank you for being a part of my life. 😀

Over the next few days I’m working on posting the remainder of the Fall themed projects I have created this year (although, in reality, you might still see a few trickle in here-and-there over the next week) before tackling my holiday crafting.

Today I am up on the Noel Mignon blog with a two-page layout featuring the November All Fall Classic and All Fall Daily Diary kits. I also created a process video that is listed below, if you would like to see how this page came together.

FALL

Here is a closer look at some of the details of the left side of the layout.

I had so much fun fussy-cutting out the leaves from the Pretty Little Studio “Oakley Avenue” vellum paper. They looked so cute scattered at the feet of my forest friends.

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-4jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-5

I cut the title on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the cut file “Fall by Loni Stevens” (Design #15233) from the Silhouette Design Store. I embossed it using the Woodgrain 5×7 embossing folder by Darice.

And now for the right side of this page spread …

Of course I have to add a little bit of aqua to every page I do! I adore this flair badge from Pretty Little Studio!

And how cute is this little fox from the Echo Park Fall is in the Air collection. I cut him out of the 3×4 cut apart sheet included with the All Fall Daily Diary Kit.

Mr. Hedgie, by Simple Stories, makes his home in the top right corner of the page. I added more leaves, a script word sticker, heart stickers, and a couple of sparkly decorative brads.

Noel Mignon: Remember with a Process Video

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-remember-4

Happy Thursday, friends! Yesterday, I shared a layout on the Noel Mignon blog using the November “All Fall” Kits. I waited until today to post my page on my personal blog, so that I could finish up a process video, in case you’d like to see how it all came together. (Scroll down a little bit to find the video.)

REMEMBER

Our challenge this week is called the “Pumpkin Patch” challenge … where we are to use patches of pattern and stitching on our project. I used the 2×2 squares from the Daily Diary kit as my patches of pattern and then added stitching around the other layers.

Here is the video!

And here is a closer look at some of the details.

I pulled in the mushroom rubber charm and the gingham flower from last month’s “Falloween” kits. They worked great here and I was happy to get them used up!

A couple of butterflies to signify friendship …

And a title created using the Heidi Swapp stamp included with the kit.
