Noel Mignon: Christmas Cookies

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-christmas-cookies-3

Are you ready for Santa to come down your chimney in a few days? Have you made or bought your favorite Christmas cookie to share with him?

My page today is about our family’s tradition of baking gingerbread cookies every year.

CHRISTMAS COOKIES

I used both of the December Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits on this page, pulling out the whimsical elements and using a cheery color scheme of pink, red, green, white, and tan … the colors of a gingerbread house!

The puffy stickers from the kit kind of remind me of piped icing on a fancy Christmas cookie with their shiny, squishy appearance. I made sure to sprinkle lots of those cute puffy stickers around the page.

I cut the two gingerbread people from a 3×4 cut apart journal card from the Holly Jolly collection by Pebbles. I created a little candy cluster with them next to the title pairing them with the candy cane die cut. The candy cane is accented with two punched holly leaves, using my favorite Holly Berry Builder punch by Stampin’ Up.

The brown accent color gets sprinkled in two other places around the page to form a visual triangle … the brown wood veneer shape at the top of the page …

… and the cute reindeer die cut shape accenting the journal block.

I had so much fun adding all kinds of little bits on this page! My kids may like to enjoy decorating gingerbread cookies … but scrapbook pages are more *MY* speed. Hehe!

Merry Christmas!

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.

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!

Noel Mignon: Holiday Party

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-holiday-party-3

Are you gearing up for your holiday parties? Or maybe you have already attended several this year? Today I’m scrapping some photos from my family’s 2015 Christmas dinner.

HOLIDAY PARTY

This week on the Noel Mignon blog the design team is “Wrapping It Up!” by using both ribbon and tape … washi tape … on our projects … just like we would on holiday gifts!

Here is my take on the challenge using the December “Oh, What Fun” kits.

I used a sheet of Echo Park I Love Christmas Peace On Earth paper as the background for this page. That tone-on-tone pattern is so pretty!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-holiday-party-1

Next, I pulled in all kinds of Simple Stories papers to layer up on top. That cute Christmas gingham paper has the pine pattern on the back … I just had to use both patterns here, they look so cute together!

I also added a length of plaid Fancy Pants washi tape across the top of the gingham paper strip.

Next, I fussy-cut several flowers to use as page accents … I had so much fun tucking them in here-and-there that I almost forgot about the journaling.

Tabbed cards to the rescue! I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut them from cream cardstock, typed the journaling on one of them, and then tucked it behind the layers. I used Echo Park stickers to decorate the tabs.

I added a little dimension to the flat fussy-cut flowers by placing three red glitter, dots on top of the red printed dots. The glitter dots come from the red glitter Thickers included with the kit.

I used the same glitter Thickers to spell out half of my title. The “holiday” word comes from the Fancy Pants puffy sticker sheet.

How pretty is that green shimmer ribbon. I love how it looks here tied around the photo.

Maya Road Guest Blogger: Hello Silly Layout

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-5-600

Today and Friday I am guest designing on the Maya Road Blog. They were so sweet to send me all kinds of fun goodies to create with.

The first thing that was calling my name were these delicious yellow felt flowers. Camryn’s favorite color is yellow, so I knew I just HAD to use them on a page about her.

HELLO SILLY

Check out these silly photos of my girl! She received these silly red glasses in a kid’s meal and wore them everywhere for a week.

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-1-600

These gorgeous papers from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life collection were perfect for these photos. I mixed in a few older papers from American Crafts (red polka dot) and My Mind’s Eye (yellow chevron and pink solid color wash) to round things out a bit.

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-2-600

I created three flower clusters on this page. One at the top of the page, one at the top right corner of my photos, and a large one at the lower left, by the title.

I fussy-cut several feathers from the patterned paper, and then paired them with die cut feathers created with the Maya Road Geometric Feather Die. Aren’t they gorgeous?!

The navy leaves were punched using my Stampin’ Up Festive Flower Builder Punch. The punch is meant to create petals for a poinsettia flower, but I think they are perfect for leaves, too!

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-3-600

The title consists of a chipboard script word (Michael’s) and denim letter stickers (WRMK), placed on top of some watercolor pennant tags that I picked up at Michael’s in the Summer.

I accented the title with a couple of Maya Road metal arrows. Aren’t they adorable! I love them so much and added another one to the cluster at the top of the page.

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-4-600

Creating this big cluster was my favorite part of the page. I just love the way everything layered up together! Such happy bright colors!
