Scrapbook Page: Pulling a Title from Your Journaling

The photos on today’s page were ones that my daughter took on a date for the Halloween dance a couple of years ago. Of course I wasn’t on the date with her, so I had her write the journaling.

I could have gone with the typical “Carving Pumpkins” title for this page, but decided to pull out a unique phrase from my daughter’s journaling instead. The silly phrase, “Toothpick-Toothed Beast” is catchy because it is different … but will also mean more to my daughter because it is something specific pulled from her date.

TOOTHPICK-TOOTHED BEAST

Today’s page features one of my FAVORITE Fall collections this year … the Hello Fall collection by Carta Bella Paper.

I have amassed a HUGE collection of letter stickers. They are one of those things I almost never purge … because, let’s face it … fonts are pretty basic.

However, I have noticed that I typically create my titles on my Silhouette Cameo machine. Simply for the fact that it is EASIER. I can choose a phrase and then size it to fit EXACTLY in the space I have on my page. I LOVE that!

But … because of that … my poor alphabet collection has been neglected. I made a goal to dig into those alphas a bit more throughout the rest of the year … and although the process of putting together the title takes longer … I still really enjoy the look of a mixed alphabet title! AND, it feels good to use what I have!

NOTE: I just have to point out something … how stinkin’ CUTE is that little hedgehog from this collection! ❤ ❤ ❤

I love using journaling strips when there is a lot to say on a page. I can cut them to whatever width I need and get a lot of information in a small space.

I had fun clustering the elements of the Hello Fall collection together in groups around the page. I made sure to add something “shiny” … whether it was an enamel dot, enamel shape, or decorative brad to each group to tie them all together. Varying which embellishment I used in the clusters keeps things interesting to look at.

Layering all kinds of bits together is one of my very favorite things to do!

This page has a light and bright feel about it, but still feels grounded with the brown cardstock strips outlining the different patterned paper sections.

I used the Ticket Tear Border punch by Stampin’ Up to jazz up a couple of those edges and keep things from feeling too boxy.

Carta Bella Paper: Hello Fall Cards

There is something about fall that makes me want to take time to connect with friends and family. Why not send your loved ones a fun fall-themed card in the mail?
Today I have a couple of cards that would be perfect created with the Carta Bella Paper Hello Fall collection.
I couldn’t resist creating a card centered around my favorite tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack … Yep! The one that says, “I’m Just Here for the Pie.” Haha!

I used the Chestnut Brown Linen Cardstock for my card base and then built up a background of the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper (multi-colored chevron) and Pumpkin Spice Paper. Aren’t those squirrels adorable?!

This next card features the adorable truck from the Hello Fall collection. Just looking at that cute truck makes me want to go on a hay ride through a pumpkin field!

I added a bit of twine and the decorative brads to give this card some texture!

More Shimelle Go Now Go

Happy Thursday, friends! I’m back with two more projects using a homemade kit I put together featuring the Shimelle Go Now Go collection.

CAMP FUN

At this point with my homemade kit I had lots of scraps left … I decided to see if I could layer them up to create a resting spot for some more camping photos. Here is the result!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Camp Fun Layout 1 600

I had purchased several of these Pebbles sticker sets at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale last year to give to some teenage girls at my church to use in a journaling project. I had a couple of sets left and thought they looked adorable with the Go Now Go paper on this page.

The flowers in the tin can was perfect for these camping photos … it’s a subtle nod to all the times we collect wildflowers and display them on the campground picnic table in a paper cup or left over tin can from dinner. Ha!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Camp Fun Layout 2 600

My goal was to do what I could to use up as many of the supplies as I could from my homemade kit … including the letters. I really like the way the bright green pops off of the page! I added more of the Pebbles stickers to decorate the open space to the left of the title and sprinkled in my favorite Stampin’ Up Metallic Enamel Shape stickers (seriously! I love these things! I have been using them on EVERYTHING lately!)

A line of red stitching around the edge adds the perfect finishing touch!

“HI” CARD

While I had everything out on my table, I decided to use up what I could by creating a card.

Jana Eubank Stashbuster Hi Card 1 600

I layered together leftover bits of the patterned papers and then added stickers and a sentiment with the chipboard letters.

The result is a cute card I would be proud to give to a friend!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my homemade kit projects these past couple of days. Tomorrow I will be back with a fun back-to-school layout I created for Bella Blvd.

Bye for now!

Working with a Homemade Kit featuring Shimelle Go Now Go

I’m not sure if it is the beginning of a new school year, but I have been itching to play with some paper collections I purchased awhile ago and haven’t made the time to use. I decided to put together some homemade kits with those products and work on creating at least two projects with them to share with you throughout the end of the year. My stash needs some love!

This week the kit I put together has lots of Shimelle Go Now Go. I was able to create four projects (Yay, Me!!!) with this kit and wanted to share them with you today and tomorrow.

…………………………………………………………..

First up … a two-page layout!

CATCH & RELEASE

I was in the mood to play with some cute cut files by Lettering Delights on this one. So that is what I did. The images featured on this page are from the “Happy Trails Too” set.

**SIDENOTE: I really struggled to get the colors just right on these pictures … so I hope you’ll bear with me!

Added into the mix are some older Pebbles stickers … I believe these ones were from the Walnut Grove collection.

Jana Eubank Catch Release Scrapbook Layout 2 600Jana Eubank Catch Release Scrapbook Layout 3 600

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 Machine to cut out the “Catch” letters (Font: Bebas Neue) and the Ampersand (“St. Patrick’s Day Set” by Echo Park Paper; Design #122732 in the Silhouette Design Store).

Those cute chipboard letter stickers are an older set from Bella Blvd.

It’s been awhile since I have played with my beloved embossing folders, so I used one here to add pattern to the light green pine tree.

The other side of the layout features this chubby bear; fishing for his dinner! Haha!

OUR TRIP

These photos were taken on the way home from a long family vacation. The kids were tired and, while we had a blast on this trip, we were all ready to get back home. Our fun had officially worn us out!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 1 600

I used the Shimelle Go Now Go “Fly” paper for the background of this page, and then clustered my photos together on vertical strips.

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 2 600

At the top of the photos, I layered together several of the Go Now Go Chipboard stickers with one of the Wooden Buttons … of course I had to use the heart to go with the “I Left My Heart in Nauvoo,” right?! I also added in a couple of red gem hearts for good measure!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 3 600

More gem hearts and another wooden button accents these chipboard stickers. I had to add a little sarcasm to this page with the “Happy Travels” chipboard sticker … because you can clearly see that Camryn was DONE. Done, and ready to be finished with this flying home thing! Haha!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 4 600

I used the chipboard letter stickers again on this page for the title, clustering more stickers around it to give it some personality!

The “adventure” acrylic piece is available at Freckled Fawn. (I LOVE the handwritten script of this piece … it was created by talented friend, Crafty Jen Schow!)
