Echo Park Paper: Summer Camp Card & Big Foot Layout

JanaEubank_EchoParkPaper_SummerCamp3
One of my favorite things about summertime is the opportunity to enjoy the fresh mountain air while camping. Now, I’ll admit, I’m not a die-hard camper with tents and hiking boots, but I do enjoy nature from the comfort of my RV and that is pretty close, right? Haha!

The Summer Camp Mini Theme has the most adorable patterns! I couldn’t just choose one, so I included as many as I could on the background of this greeting card. I especially love the gingham check! It reminds me of the plastic tablecloths my mom always spread out on the picnic tables whenever we went on a summer picnic on the side of a canyon road.

I had fun layering several stickers together on top of one of the cut apart journaling cards. The little fishies and anchor are attached with a line of white twine … just waiting to be cooked over the campfire!

CAMP

While I had this cute collection out on my desk, I thought I would tackle a layout. I pulled out these pictures I had of my son at a scout camp a few years ago.

The design inspiration for this page comes from the fact that my son LOVES Big Foot … I mean … he is totally into the TV show and loves to watch the big foot sighting videos on YouTube. I have to admit … I’m pretty fascinated in watching them, too! (For fun, of course!)

I found the cut files (including the Big Foot dude) in the adorable “Don’t Feed the Bears” cut set at Lettering Delights.com It’s been awhile since I’ve created a little scene on my page with cut files, and I thought this would be the perfect one to do it on!

Here’s a little peek into how I planned out this page using in the Sure Cuts A Lot program before sending it to my Silhouette Cameo for cutting.

I drew a few rectangles to represent my photos and then plugged everything else in. I like to do this with scene pages like this because it helps me to size all of the images correctly.

I didn’t end up using the sun shape, simply because the orange felt overpowering at the top of the page. I needed to sprinkle in some more yellow (after adding the yellow journaling block at the bottom of the page), and so I decided to go with some punched stars instead.

Here’s a closer look at Mr. Big Foot. Isn’t he adorable with his big pinky orange feet?! I love the texture this cut file gives to his fur and do I dare say I love that he has a little chest and a belly button?! Bwaahaa! Too funny!

The mushrooms were the perfect little thing to tie everything together at the bottom of the page. I love them!

End of School Year Fun!

JanaEubank_GraduationCard

These past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind at our household. With the end of the school year and my oldest daughter graduating from high school, it’s been a constant stream of fun activities, places to go, and people to see!

Here are a few pics from Jensyn’s big day! I’m so proud of our girl!

 

The end of the school year always brings the opportunity to do some creating for friends, teachers, and neighbors to say thanks for a great year. As you can see, tags and cards are my go-to solution!

First up, is a graduation card I created for my girl!

JanaEubank_GraduationCard

This super-cute sun image is by Lettering Delights and can be found here as a part of “The Happy Graduate” set. There are coordinating sentiments for each of the images in “The Happy Graduate – Tidings” set. I mixed and matched the whoo-hoo sentiment (meant for the owl) with the sun on my card and love how it came out!

My 12-year-old daughter served as 7th grade president at school and wanted to give a good-bye gift to the other officers she became such good friends with this year. We created this cute tag with the Layered Tags set by Lettering Delights and then added the eagle image (Cuddly Animals Set 2 by SVGCuts.com). I added a punched, glittery, red heart for more color and some twine around his neck. The sentiment is from the October Afternoon Summertime stamp set. The tag was attached to a box of gum, my daughter’s favorite treat!

My youngest daughter wanted something happy and colorful for her friends. She gave them her favorite candy, Skittles, with this cute rainbow tag attached. On the back she wrote each of them a note.

JanaEubank_RainbowTags1

Again, the tag comes from the Lettering Delights Layered Tags set, the rainbow is by Miss Kate Cuttables, and the sentiment stamp is from the same October Afternoon Summertime stamp set used above. The heart is a punch by American Crafts.

I started a new calling in my church a couple of months ago working with the children of our congregation as the Primary Chorister. I love my calling! And I love the ladies I work with! It’s so much fun to catch up with them every Sunday.

One morning, my friend told us the funniest story and this phrase was part of the punchline. It has kind of become an inside joke among us and I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so I created a fun little goodie box with cinnamon bears inside to give to each of them. I’m sharing it here because I think this would also make a really cute container to put Smore Supplies inside of for a neighbor or friend!

JanaEubank_SmokinHot1

The box and Ovals are from the Silhouette Design Store. The fire image is by Lettering Delights (from the “Love Me Tinder” set).

JanaEubank_SmokinHot2

I used the Silhouette pens to add custom tags to the tops of each one.

JanaEubank_SmokinHot3

Finally, I created these cute little cherry tags to go on gifts for a few gals in my neighborhood.

Both the tag and cherries are from the “Sweet Nothings – Tag Cards” set by Lettering Delights.

JanaEubank_SummerCherryTag1

I cut them from paper scraps hanging out in my stash, and then added a couple of gems and a brown button tied with twine. Then I tied them to brown lunch sacks that I embossed. They have such a fun, summer vibe about them!

JanaEubank_SummerCherryTag2

I have a few projects in the works that I’ll be sharing soon!

Happy Summer!

Cutie Patootie Fall Cuts!

My mom’s birthday was at the end of October. I had bought her some fun jewelry, but wanted to make a cute gift box to give them to her in. SVG Cuts to the rescue! I love their cut files! They always have something amazing up their sleeves!

I decided to make the owl box from the Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit, that way she could keep it out as a decoration through Thanksgiving. To go with it, I created the Scarecrow card from the September Scenes Stand-Up Cards SVG Kit. They both turned out so cute!

I changed the owl up a bit by adding more feathers to his wings (just handcut by me). I also cut the beak out twice so that I could layer them together. I bent the top layer up, so that his mouth was open … he kind of looks like he’s smiling!🙂 For the eyes, I added punched circles from corrugated paper, then used Recollections large black pearl stickers for the pupils (purchased at Michael’s). His belly was embossed with the Charles Embossing Folder by Cricut. Finally, I added some twine around his neck (with a metal charm by My Mind’s Eye, older collection), buttons and gems.

JanaEubank_OwlandCard3

Pumpkin embossed with the Cricut Cuttlebug Kaleidoscope folder. The haybale was embossed with the Darice Thin Lines Border folder.

The papers I used, were from these fun stacks that I purchased at JoAnn’s.

Have a great weekend!
