Echo Park Paper: Under the Sea Beach Tote & Flip Flops

Do you know someone who could use a little pick me up this summer? Create this fun beach tote and two flip flop boxes with the Echo Park Paper Under the Sea collection to give to them, and they will be feeling “sun-sational” in no time!

I created this beach tote and the two flip flop boxes using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
The beach tote comes from the Luxury Handbags SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Isn’t it absolutely adorable! This is the kind of shape I could cut out again and again and decorate it a different way each and every time! I love how roomy it is, too!
I cut the main body of the beach bag from the dark blue Sea Explorers Paper with a sunny orange polka dotted pocket (Deep Sea Fun Paper). The yellow accents were cut from the Coordinating Yellow/Blue Solid Paper and the striped bottom is the Swimmingly Stripe Paper.

Of course I had a blast decorating the front of the bag with all kinds of die cuts (Frames & Tags Ephemera) and stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. I just love that happy yellow submarine and all of the sea creatures!

I couldn’t resist creating a couple of flip flop boxes to tuck inside. I used the orange dotted Deep Sea Fun Paper along with the navy striped side of the 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper. The top of the flip flop is decorated with the fish pattern from the 6×6 paper pad.

Won’t it be fun to fill the flip flop boxes with a treat and tuck them inside of the beach tote?! I plan to stick a few other treats inside, as well. I can’t wait to see the face of the person I give it to!

Echo Park Paper: Tooth Fairy Easel Trinket Box

Waiting for the tooth fairy to come is almost like waiting for Christmas morning …the magic or anticipating a fairy visiting your room feels the air and makes it almost impossible to fall asleep!
Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with a fun project using the NEW Tooth Fairy Mini Collection.

Those teeny, tiny teeth are so easily lost underneath a pillow … why not create a keepsake box to place on your child’s nightstand instead?
jana-eubank-toothfairy-mini-toothfairy-easel-box-4-600
The top of this box as an easel that flips up, displaying a tooth chart. The sparkly brads keeps the easel in place, but the panel can also fold flat for storage.

Below the chart is a drawer, … the perfect spot to place the loose tooth and maybe even a note for the tooth fairy, thanking her for her hard work. The sparkly brad is not only a fun decorative touch, but serves as the drawer pull.

After the tooth fairy comes for her visit, she can leave payment inside the drawer.

Father’s Day Projects

Hi Friends! Sorry, I’ve disappeared on you the last week or so. I decided to take a blogging break to enjoy the last busy week of school and the first busy week of summer … which means I haven’t been doing much scrapping. I’m sure all of you have been doing the same thing! Yay for Summer!

I do have a few Father’s Day projects that I thought I would share with you today. The first one is a gift set that I put together for BasicGrey using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_DadTrophy1

For this project I used a mixture of the BasicGrey Hey! Collections. My husband really doesn’t like when we make a fuss over him on holidays/birthdays … if he had it his way, we would all just go about like it was a normal day. And if we do give him any gifts, he prefers the practical and useful kind. Boring, right?! 🙂 Well, just because he likes practical gifts, doesn’t mean that I’m going to wrap it up in a practical way. Hehe! My kids and I still shower him with all kinds of fanfare and this trophy gift bucket will be the perfect way for us to display our affection for him. It’s roomy enough to hold several small gifts and notes, and after he goes through them, it will look great sitting up on the mantel for the remainder of Father’s Day.

I created the base of the trophy with light yellow cardstock using my Cameo and an SVG cut file by SVG Attic (“Day at the Races” set). For the top layer, I used a yellow pattern from the Hey You 12 x 12 Paper Pad. Next, I decorated the front of the trophy with an award created with my die cut machine using more papers from the Hey You collection. I placed a wooden button from the Hey Boy collection with the number one on it in the center of the award. You could even make the award removable so that he has to wear it pinned to his shirt during his Father’s Day dinner!

For the card I used more of the Hey You papers to cut out a hot air balloon image. I used the Hey Boy Printed Chipboard Alpha letters to spell “Dad” across the top and added a couple of clear blue buttons from the Hey Boy Buttons and Brads as an accent.

This second project is a layout that I have up on the My Mind’s Eye blog today using the Kate & Co. Oxford Lane Collection.

SUPPLIES:
Kate & Co.-Oxford Lane: Bold Paper, Triples Paper, Fresh Paper, Enjoy Paper, 6 x 6 Paper Pad,  12 x 12 Sticker Accessories, 12 x 12 Chipboard Accessories, Decorative  Brads, Decorative Tape, Layered Stickers, Stamps
Other: White Cardstock, Teal Spray Ink,  Navy Stamping Ink, Acrylic Block, Black Distress Ink, Scissors, Trimmer, Adhesive, Foam Squares

My husband’s favorite color happens to be white, and so I decided to begin this page with a crisp white background spritzed with a few droplets of teal spray ink. I love how the colors and patterns of this collection look against that white background.  I added horizontal bands of patterned paper across the top and bottom of the page to “frame” it a bit and then added some extra bits to the top for some fun. I used the decorative tape along with a layered sticker, enamel brad and a stamped flower.

I adhered the #1 Sticker to a circle punched from a smaller scale patterned paper from the 6 x 6 paper pad and then fussy-cut a few flower sprays as accents. I also stamped a few more flower shapes around this cluster.

The journaling is contained on the “Fun” chipboard journal block and accented with more stamping and fussy-cut flowers. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any fussy-cutting and I love the detail and texture it adds to a page.

I hope you are having a great summer so far. We are knee deep in swimming lessons, scout camps, popsicles, friends around the firepit, and more. I love making summertime memories! I’ll be back soon with more shares!

Thankful

Hello friends! It’s been awhile. I didn’t mean to let this few-and-far-between blogging pattern take hold of me, but lately, I just haven’t been feeling very chatty. I HAVE been creating though … can’t stay away from that … so I will try and catch up and load those projects here on the ol’ blog. 🙂

I know Thanksgiving seems like old news now that Christmas is on it’s way … but I do have a couple of Thanksgiving projects to share, if that’s alright with you. 🙂

SUPPLIES:
BasicGrey Serenade collection: Serenade Chemise Paper, Serenade Bustle Paper, Lucille Selvage Paper, Lucille Pin It Paper, Serenade Element Stickers, Serenade Alphabet Stickers, Serenade Printed Chipboard, Serenade Mixed Brads

I used the Serenade collection (Loooove!) to scrap some snapshots from last year’s Thanksgiving. We were actually planning on driving three hours to my sister’s home for the weekend. Before we left, I decided to cook an impromptu turkey dinner just for our little family. The kids were so excited! The girls drew a banner to hang on the mantle and my son created placecards on the computer for everyone. We had a great time cooking everything together. My husband quickly snapped these shots with his cell phone of our time together and I’m so glad he did! The next morning four of us woke up with the flu and we ended up staying home and never had an “official” Thanksgiving dinner with our extended family.

I spritzed the background paper with walnut ink and then began building my page by matting each photo on a different pattern paper. I adhered the photos side by side used the large floral sticker and layered border stickers to “connect” everything. The title was created with the chipboard letters that come with the Printed Chipboard.

I printed my journaling out on a transparency and added it to a journaling sticker. A few brads and more chipboard pieces here-and-there complete the page.

Growing up, my mom always left little treats for us kids on the kitchen counter for almost every holiday. They were so much fun to wake up to! When I saw this pilgrim hat cut on the Silhouette site, I knew it would be the perfect little container to hold a few treats for my kids. I added glittery yellow Stickles to the buckle and then created a couple of “feathers” to tuck in the hat band for additional color. The feathers were actually created from a free tropical leaf cut available on the SVGCuts.com website HERE. (On a side note, SVG Cuts has 28 pages of free designs available to download … be sure to go check them out HERE. WOW!)

I also created a pilgrim card for each of them. It was fun to write each of them a note and tell them all kinds of gushy-lovey reasons why I am thankful for them. 🙂 How cute is that pilgrim cut?! This one can be found in the Thanksgiving Harvest set at Lettering Delights. The card design was inspired by THIS CUTE HALLOWEEN CARD created by Jin of UnderACherryTree.com.

Next, I created a couple of Pie shaped gift boxes filled with candies. I took one to my parents and one to my husband’s parents to thank them for having us over for Thanksgiving Dinner at each of their houses. The pies are so much fun to make! I’m thinking I’m better at making a paper pie than a real one! LOL! You can find the file for the pie in the Fall Harvest SVG Kit at SVG Cuts.com. My girls begged me to make each of them a pie as well and they have been using them in their play kitchen, pretending to bake them in the oven. LOL!

And then finally, I used this free SVG file by Lettering Delights (find them on the blog www.underacherrytree.com HERE) to create these tiny little pumpkin purses filled with candies for a few of my gal pals at church. In addition to the SVG file you can also download a PDF for the gratitude cards. (I plan on adding one or two to a future Thanksgiving/Fall page!)

Thanks for taking a peek at my work! I’m so happy you came by today. 🙂

Take care!
