Bella Blvd: Together is Our Favorite Place

My husband has a busy schedule these days, and so I am grateful when we can sneak away for lunch or maybe just spend a little time together running errands. He is my best friend … so doing mundane things can be fun … JUST because we are together.

The photo on this page was a quick selfie we sent our kids when we were all chatting on a group text … but I thought it would be fun to use on a page about how I love spending time with my guy.

Because I had just one photo, I decided to go with a grid design. Dividing the space up and then decorating each section is really fun!

TOGETHER IS OUR FAVORITE PLACE

I used the ADORABLE Bella Blvd. Mind Your Manners collection for this one. (Can I just mention real quick that I LOVE how happy, bright, and cheery Bella Blvd products are?! Everything I create with them immediately lifts my spirits!)

I used the cut apart cards from the Daily Details paper to make quick work of my grid. I matted my photo on a smaller-scaled patterned paper pulled from the 6×8 paper pad and then added a strip of the blue Be A Good Guest Paper across the top of the page.

To jazz up the blue strip of paper, I added the scalloped border sticker from the Fundamentals 12×12 Sticker sheet. I then used some enamel dots from my stash on top of the orange and white dots of the border sticker to give it some interesting dimension.

This card already had a house printed on it, but I wanted it to have a bit more dimension, so I used foam squares to adhere a house die cut from the Ephemera pack right on top. The “Home” phrase is also from the Ephemera pack.

I accented the green quote card with a flower and mushroom die cuts and then sprinkled on a few puffy heart stickers (McIntosh Mix and Punch Mix) on both the house card and this card as accents.

How flippin’ CUTE are the new felt pennant embellishments that Bella Blvd. have created to go with all of their new collections?! I LOVE these things! I cut a bamboo skewer in half and added two of the pennant stickers to the top, tying together the two sticks with a bit of green grosgrain ribbon from my stash.

Yes… our time together is definitely worth “celebrating” with some pennants! Woohoo!

I love the way this page came together! I forget how fun grids can be to work with!

If you ever feel overwhelmed with where to start on a page, or if you only have one photo, like I did for this page … try a grid design! It breaks the page up into bite-sized sections that you can then decorate and treat individually.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Bella Blvd: Back to School Page Inspired By the Iconic Apple

Happy Friday, friends! I have always loved the feeling of going back to school! The freshly sharpened pencils, the new box of crayons with their perfect points all lined up in beautiful rows, new clothes and shoes, seeing friends, and the feeling of a fresh start.

Today I am up on the Bella Blvd blog with a Back to School page about my son. I decided to use the iconic school symbol … the apple … as inspiration for my color choices.

I love the simple colors of an apple … the red of its shiny skin, the green of the leaves, and the black of the stem. I found this beautiful image of an apple on pinterest HERE to get me started.

I lined the photos up in a single row in the center of the page, with a block of the Football Throw It paper in the center, cut to the same size of the photos. I decorated this block with Oh My Stars star paper pieces and used an Oh My Stars gift tag for the journaling.

The photos and journaling block are then anchored together with three rows of border stickers from the Soccer Fundamentals Stickers.

Along the top of the photos is where I placed the title; using the “New” acrylic word along with alphabet letter stickers from the Soccer Fundamentals sticker sheet and Tiny Text Pumpkin Spice Stickers.

I decorated the centers of the two letter “O”s with a couple of star die cuts, a button tied with twine, and a clear enamel sticker (Stampin’ Up Metallic Enamel Shapes). The green arrow and circular star stickers add a bit of fun to the title as well.

With my design centered in the middle of the page, I felt like it needed to be framed a bit. I decided to “bookend” the top and bottom of the design with strips of the Oh My Stars McIntosh Stars paper with its clean and simple plus pattern. I then used the Stampin’ Up Border Ticket Tear punch to add a decorative strip of black cardstock below the top patterned paper strip.

Next time you sit down to scrapbook a page, try using the colors of a simple icon or image to guide your color choices. It was a lot of fun!

Bella Blvd: Baseball Popcorn Box Video

*Take me out to the ballllll-game! Take me out with the crowd!!!*

Hello, Friends! I’m up on the Bella Blvd. Blog today with a process video showing you how to create a Baseball themed Popcorn Box using the brand new Bella Blvd. Baseball collection!

Jana Eubank Bella Blvd Baseball Popcorn 4 600

I am LOVING these adorable new sports collections! I think they would be so much fun to not only document your child’s sports memories, but how cute are they for creating treat boxes for team mates or to thank that special coach?!

I love the felt pennants adhered to wooden skewers adorning the top of this project!

Add a quick and easy tag to the top of your treat by simply layering a few Ephemera die cuts together, punching a hole in the top, and tying it to your package using a bit of twine.

The Ephemera die cuts look so cute layered together to decorate the front of the box. I added puffy stars stickers (Bell Pepper Mix) to the centers of the star die cuts for a bit more interest. I also added twine, and used different levels of foam squares for each piece. I love the way it looks!

SUPPLIES:

Do you have a sports lover in your life that would love a gift like this? Tuck in a jersey, some baseball cards, or even a ticket to their favorite teams’ game!

See you again soon!

Bella Blvd: Home of the Brave

Today I am up on the Bella Blvd. Blog with a process video featuring a patriotic page created with a combination of Bella Blvd. collections!

This was a really fun one to put together! I love working with a color scheme … grabbing elements from several collections to put together my own unique look for a project.

The grid background paper is the Dancing Jellies paper from the Secrets of the Sea Boy collection. I then used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut the stars and stripes for the top of the page using the Blueberry Stars Paper (Oh My Stars Collection) and the On the Farm Paper (red wood slat paper from the Barnyard collection).

Jana Eubank Home Brave 2 600

The title is a combination of two packages of acrylic words (Home, Namaste and Be You, Be Brave) along with the Blueberry Wonky Alphabet Letter Stickers. So cute!

I love the circular die cut pieces that I added to the right of the title … don’t they remind you of fireworks?!

I layered several star die cuts on top of the Blueberry Paper stars on the left side of the page and then added a mixture of Milk White, Blueberry Mix, and McIntosh Mix Puffy Stars stickers to give the page a “sparkly” look and add texture and dimension.

Below the photos, I added two house die cuts along with a little cloud. The houses tie in with the “Home” of the Brave title at the top of the layout.
