Echo Park Paper: Disney Countdown

The hardest part about planning a magical vacation is the waiting! I thought it would be fun to create a countdown calendar to help the final days move along.

While searching on Pinterest for inspiration, I came across this fun idea by Mamas Like Me, but thought I would punch it up a bit by adding a topper to it and using the adorable Echo Park Magic & Wonder collection.

Begin by punching several 1.75″ circles from Ebony Flack Felt Designer Cardstock. Use a scoring board to score a line on one side of the circle.

Next cut Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock, Jumbo Dots Paper (red stars), and Wonder Stripes Paper (Yellow Stars) into 1.5″ x 8″ strips. These will be used to create the Mickey links. Cut the Confetti Dots Paper into 7/8″ x 8″ strips to connect the Mickey links together. You will also need one to connect the links to the topper.

The topper was created with a 4.5″ square piece of the Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock. I cut the 4×4 card from the Multi Journaling Cards Paper. I reverse rounded the corners and then adhered it to the cardstock base.
I placed eyelets in the top two corners and added a ribbon for hanging. Next, I used several Element Stickers with foam square adhesive for decoration.

So are you headed to the Magic Kingdom sometime soon? Why not make this project for your family to help the waiting game pass more quickly?

Valentine’s Day Silhouette Projects

Happy Valentine’s Day to you! It’s the day of hugs and kisses and I have a couple of lovey-dovey projects to share with you using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

LOVE FRAME

This first project is just a sweet little home decor item that you can create to brighten up a corner of your home, or as a gift for a friend to display in their home.

I cut out the heart puzzle images on several 6×6 patterned papers from the Carta Bella It’s a Girl collection. I also added an offset white cardstock layer underneath to help them POP a bit. They are adhered to the background paper with thin foam squares.

I then added the script “love” word on top, and adorned the corners with a pretty floral image.

I WHALEY LOVE YOU Gift Box & Card

Isn’t this little whale favor box adorable?!! He was pretty easy to put together. You can find him in the Silhouette Store. I added some hearts on thin wires as his water spout for a Valentine touch.

A sweet little Whale card to accompany him was the perfect touch! I cut the sentiment out of black vinyl to make adhering the sentiment easy-peasy.

Echo Park Paper: Valentine Door Hanger

You gotta love a holiday that breaks up the winter doldrums with the purpose of telling everyone around you that you love and appreciate them! For that reason, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays!
I’m up on the Echo Park Paper Blog today with a sweet little treat door hanger all dressed up for the Valentine holiday!
jana-eubank-valentine-doorhanger-photo-1-600
I used the  Echo Park Paper Happiness is Homemade collection for this project, pulling out the shades of pink, red, yellow and blue.
I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and a door hanger cut file I found in the Silhouette store (#52311) to cut out the base of this project. I used the Solid Pink/Cream coordinating paper for the base and then used papers from the 6×6 paper pad for the accent panels.
jana-eubank-valentine-doorhanger-photo-2-600
I hand cut several of the flower clusters from the Fresh Baked Floral Paper to use as accents around the acetate window on the front of the door hanger, as well as on the handle.

I then layered together a few of the stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet to tell the recipient how fabulous I think they are! Buttons and a sparkly yellow brad (I Love Family Decorative Brads) add texture and dimension.

The top of the door hanger is capped off with a cheery, yellow bow with a red button in the center along with a couple of tags. The woodgrain “Sweet Like Sugar” tag is from the Alpha Sticker sheet and the “Made with Love” tag was handcut from the Made with Love paper.

Carta Bella: Creating an Out of This World Lunch Box!

jana-eubank-carta-bella-space-academy-lunch-box-1-600
The Carta Bella Space Academy collection reminded me of that bygone era of metal lunch boxes decorated with a child’s favorite hero. The adorable space cadets were just perfect to use as the focal point of this project!
I used the lunch box cut file from the Miss Baker’s Classroom SVG Set by SVGCuts.com.
The front of the box has an acetate window allowing a mysterious peek at the yummy contents inside. I created a dimensional scene on the front of the window by using a combination of the the Ephemera die cuts, Tags & Frames Ephemera Die cuts, and several of the stickers popped up on different layers of foam squares. I added gems to the centers of the star stickers for a little twinkle.

The attached lid closes by latching onto a raised, silver brad. The hinged handle is also constructed with brads. I love the way the silver accents add an authentic, industrial look to this project!

Boys of all ages would get a kick out of this project. It would make a really fun party favor for your space rangers, as well. Have fun creating!
