Echo Park Paper: “You Are PAW-some” Dog House Treat Box

Hello, friends! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a fun dog house-shaped treat box for the dog lover in your life. I used the adorable new A Dog’s Tail collection for this project. Check it out below!

I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutting machine to cut out the dog house using a house cut file from the Gingerbread Chalet Village SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. The base of the box is cut from the Puppy Play Paper. The roof was cut from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock and then covered with Furry Friends paper shingles (green polka dots). I created the shingles by cutting out small rectangles using my Silhouette Cameo and then adhering them one-by-one to the roof.

Next, I added a piece of acetate over the dog house door and added some grass border die cuts (using a metal die from my stash) along the bottom of each of the four walls. I then decorated the front of the house with several stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet and a dog that I fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I die cut the heart above the door using the Postage Stamp Die Set (an older metal die set by Echo Park Paper).

I placed a treat inside of a cellophane bag, tied it with a bow, and then placed it inside of the gift box. I then tied everything closed with a cheery, red, plaid ribbon.

Every gift needs a cute tag, don’t you think?! The tags in the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack make it easy! I attached one to the bow at the top of the box using a bit of white twine, and then decorated the tag with a few small die cut hearts (Flower Set #5 Die Set).

Echo Park Paper: Camping Trail Mix

Do you know someone who loves trail mix? I happen to know several people who would be delighted to get a large jar of trail mix as a gift, … it is their favorite treat! (And one of mine, too!)
For today’s project I decorated a large jar of this peanut-ty treat using the Carta Bella Paper Gone Camping collection. Your outdoorsman would be delighted to receive this as he is heading out for a day of fishing. I mean, who wouldn’t love having a delicious snack to take along?!

The first thing I did was wrap the jar with a strip of the striped Campout paper. I then added a band of the the fishing lure patterned Fly Fishing paper on top of the striped paper.  The top of the jar is decorated with a circle cut from the plaid paper in the 6×6 paper pad.

Next, I fussy-cut three wood slices from the Travel Patches paper and grouped them together on the front of the jar to anchor the rest of the decorative elements. The main piece is the Fishing Tackle Die Cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack. I added the fisherman sticker on top of the die cut along with a few trees and the “Fishing Hole” sign stickers for a bit of scenery. A few die cut pine branches (Be Merry Branch Die Set) are tucked behind the left side.

I tucked in a few more branches cut from the Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock on the right side of the label, and then added a group of fish “caught” … I mean CUT … from the Fish Facts Paper. A bit of jute tied around the neck of the jar finishes everything off!

American Crafts: Hand Lettering

I love exploring my creativity in all kinds of ways and have really enjoyed expanding my horizon into the world of hand-lettering with the help of Kelly Creates by American Crafts. I have been practicing with the “Learn Brush Lettering” workbook  and the Kelly Creates Black Brush Pens.

While I am building and honing my new skills, I can still have success with the Kelly Creates Traceable stamps!
I have been wanting to try my hand at bullet journaling and decided to give it a go using a Kelly Creates Practice Journal and Practice Journal Insert.
First, I made myself a Habit Tracker spread for the month of April. It looks like I did the hand-lettering across the top, doesn’t it?! No, I’m not quite that good yet … so the Traceable Stamps come in handy. Keep reading below to see how I used them!

Next, I wanted to create a spot to write down my TO DO list each day. I decided on a two-page spread for each week of the month. On the left side of the spread, I will write my personal list, and on the right side, I will write my work list for each day.
I used the Months stamps to add “April” to the top of the page, and then added the Days of the Week down the left side.

It’s tough to see in the photo above, but if you look carefully at the photo below, you will notice that I stamped the days of the week in a very, light gray ink. I used a Multicolored Brush Pen to letter on top of the stamped image; allowing me to get a great result and practice my lettering at the same time!

I had so much fun creating my little set up, that I went right ahead into May, changing the color to a blue Multicolor Brush Pen for the new month. I used the Quotes stamps to add encouraging sentiments to the top of each page. I then used the fine-tipped black pen from the Here & There Detail Doodlers to fill in the rest of the details.

I LOVE that I was able to get such beautiful, hand-lettered results by tracing the stamped images for my bullet journal pages … but that’s not all the stamps can be used for! Try using them as stamped sentiments on your other projects!

When I think of spring, I think of May Day Tussie Mussies … and Bridal and Baby showers. I combined the two ideas together here by using the One Canoe Two Twilight collection to create Bridal Shower Favor Cones. Wouldn’t these be fun to fill with elegant treats for your bridal shower?!
I used the Kelly Creates Wedding Traceable Stamps to create stamped banners for each cone, but you could easily replace the “Bride & Groom” with another sentiment, fill them with flowers and leave them on someone’s front door for May Day!

I love how beautiful and elegant these turned out. They would look gorgeous spread out on a tray for your guests to take home.

So are you ready to try out hand-lettering?! I promise, with the help of the Kelly Creates, you will have beautiful results in no time. Enjoy!

Echo Park Paper: A Very, Merry Unbirthday to You!

If you are thinking of someone and want to do something special for them “Just Because,” why not wish them a “Very, Merry Unbirthday” with the new Alice in Wonderland collection by Echo Park Paper and this tea kettle gift box?!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Alice In Wonderland Tea Kettle 1 600
This tea kettle cut file by SVGCuts.com is such a great size! It measures 9 inches high with a circumference of 4 inches, making it perfect to tuck in a stack of homemade cookies, tea, or perhaps a bottle of lotion or body wash? Whatever you tuck inside, your friend will be excited that you thought of them.

The top of the handle is adorned with die cut flowers created with the Flower Die Set #3. I layered together all three flower shapes, as well as the large circle. I also added in a few blue swirls from the die set for a magical feel. The die cut leaves were created using the Fall Branch Die Set. All papers for the flower cluster are from the 6×6 paper pad.

Alice, herself, beckons you to go on an adventure. I don’t know about you, but she makes me want to spend the afternoon reading a book in a beautiful garden. (Isn’t the artwork in this collection so adorable?!)
