PageMaps: Making Spirits Bright

I always look forward to January with its fresh-start-feeling and a chance to get caught up on a few projects after the holidays. What better way to do that than with sketches from PageMaps?

The January sketches are up and here is the page that I contributed this month using the Simple Stories Merry & Bright collection.

MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT

I fussy-cut this wreath from a 4x4 card of the Merry & Bright SNAP! Cards and was inspired to tuck my journaling spot into it as the circular element on this page.

I then built my title off to the right, on top of the photos, using the word “Bright” fussy-cut from one of the papers of the Merry & Bright 6×8 Pad.

Next, I added another circular element below the wreath on the left side of the page, by punching out the word JOY from one of the 3×4 cards. I then overlapped the “Ho Ho Ho” die cut from the Bits & Pieces on top of the photo to connect everything together.

I added the string of lights sticker at the bottom of this paper block and then placed the a couple more Bits & Pieces die cuts on the right side to fill in the gap and make the light strand sticker appear as though it goes all the way across the page underneath the car.

I finished off this layout by adding some texture with the stitching and the red foil dimensional dot accents on the snowflakes and touch points of the light strand.

Echo Park Paper: Down on the Farm Barn Gift Box

Hello! I had so much fun creating this Barn Gift Box using the Echo Park Paper Down On the Farm collection I’m sharing with you today. Let me tell you how I created it!

I found this adorable cut file online and was inspired to recreate a similar look using cut files that I already owned. (Check the bottom of this post for the list of cut files that I used.)

First, I cut out the Barn Box using Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock for the roof and the gingham check Barn Yard Friends paper.

I wanted the roof to have shingles like the inspiration photo, so I simply cut 1” strips of the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock using my paper trimmer and then cut notches into the strips using a pair of scissors. I layered them together along the roof, finishing it off with a wider strip scored down the middle and notched on both sides to lay across the top of the roofline. To help the shingles pop a bit more, I brushed the edges with light gray distressing ink.

I used detail scissors to fussy-cut the farmer from one of the stickers on the Element Sticker sheet. I added him along with the cow sticker to the front of the barn using foam squares. I created a few corn stalks to go on either side of the barn door using the leaf sprig from the Flowers Bloom Die Set.

Next, I used the Carta Bella Paper Tree Die Set to add die cut trees and additional corn stalks to the sides of the box.

The barn is placed on top of an octagonal shaped box that I cut using Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock. I added green “grass” to the top of the box using Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock. Before adhering the grass panel into place, I embossed it using a letter-sized polka dot embossing folder from my stash. I also die cut a long fence shape from Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock using the “Echo Park Fence” cut file (Design #39988) and adhered it along the edges of the panel. I welded the fence sections together in the design program to make a longer border, then scored the bottom of each post, which allowed me to adhere it to the grass panel.

The rim of the box is decorated with the chicken border cut from the Journaling Cards paper. I also added panels to the base of the box cut from the Farm Trucks paper.

The front of the box is decorated with the “Farm Living” die cut from the Ephemera Pack, a dog sticker (Element Stickers), more die cut corn stalks (Flowers Bloom Die Set), and a pair of cowboy boots created with the Carta Bella Boot & Horseshoe Die Set.

I cut the boots from Kraft Designer Cardstock, Chestnut Brown Linen Designer Cardstock, and silver foil cardstock from my stash. I stamped a design on the side of the boot with brown ink using the leaf stamp from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set.

I love the way this project turned out and think it will be so much fun to fill with goodies for someone!

Simple Stories: Merry and Bright

Instead of stringing garland on a Christmas tree, why not switch things up a bit and create a garland from Christmas trees? My page today features a banner of Christmas trees across the top that I fussy-cut from a page of the Merry and Bright 6×8 paper pad.

I arranged the trees in a slight curve and then used my sewing machine to stitch them together.

After stitching them, I tucked thin foam squares behind each tree to lift them up a bit and then accented a few of them with phrase and flower stickers from the Merry and Bright Combo Sticker Sheet.

I used a journal block from the Merry and Bright SN@P! Cards to add the details about my photos. Cutting around the bracket shape of the journal block adds interest. I added some greenery and phrases from the Bits & Pieces and Combo Sticker Sheet as accents.

Another 3×4 Merry and Bright SN@P! Card makes a quick and easy title for this page, and the large fussy-cut Santa (Merry and Bright 6×8 Paper Pad) is so cute peeking out from behind the photos.

As you take down your holiday decorations this year, try looking at them with new eyes and see if there is an idea you can incorporate into your next scrapbook page. Creating a garland or banner on your layout is a great place to start!
