Echo Park Paper: USA Layout

Today I have a layout featuring lots of stars and stripes with the Echo Park Paper Celebrate America Collection.
My daughter had the opportunity last summer to march in a local 4th of July parade representing her Junior High. This layout features a few shots of her before heading out on the parade route.

I decided to use a quadrant design for my page, placing the photos diagonally from one another. I used the remaining two quadrants for page decoration, a title, and journaling.

I framed out the quadrant with borders on all four sides. At the top of the page, I layered together several strips of patterned papers, including a fussy-cut patriotic swag border from the Patriotic Banners paper.
This little cluster of elements decorates the top left corner of the page. The “Stars & Stripes” sticker is accented with a small flag cut from the Liberty Paper and some layered star die cuts (Dream Big Die Set).

 When I need larger elements to fill the spaces on my page, I always turn to the journaling cards to see what I can fussy-cut with my scissors. Here I used Evergreen Shimmer Designer Cardstock to create a grassy hill for the barn cut out from the 4×4 Journaling Cards Paper. Firework stickers fill the night sky! I added a few firecrackers next to the barn, too. One of them is “lit” with a punched flower, to look like it has a spark.

At the bottom of the page I added another fussy-cut element, the jar of flowers from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I added a title cut on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the Splash Gingham paper. I cut the title multiple times so that I could layer the letters with foam squares for more dimension. I finished the title by underscoring it with another fussy-cut banner, again, from the Patriotic Banners paper.

Journaling Cards aren’t just for pocket pages or cards … try cutting out the elements to use on your scrapbook pages, too!

Carta Bella Paper: Hello Vacation!

Hello, Memory Keepers! Today I have a tropical layout using the Carta Bella Paper Summer Splash collection.
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Summer Splash Hello Vacation Layout 1 600
We visited Hawaii a couple of years ago as a family to celebrate my daughter’s graduation from high school. Everything on the islands is so colorful and beautiful … I wanted to take photos of everything! The photos featured on this layout are pictures I took of our hotel grounds. When I look at them it takes me right back to those wonderfully lazy days relaxing around the pool.

I placed my photos in a grid and then built three areas of embellishment around the page. At the top of the page is this cluster featuring an adorable sea turtle from the Summer Splash Element Stickers. He is anchored by a chipboard beach ball and a few die cut palm leaves created with the Tropical Palms Die Set.

Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with titles for my pages. I love when a collection includes large phrases that serve as easy titles for my layout. This one from the Chipboard Phrases expressed my heart perfectly, “HELLO Vacation!”

chipboard arrow at the bottom of the page points your way down the path to the beach and a colorful trio of enamel dots adds to the frivolous vacation feel I wanted this page to have.

Carta Bella Paper: “Practically Perfect” Carousel Gift Box

After several wintry days here in Utah, I’m ready for the warmth of sunny skies and the scent of blooming flowers! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a cheery, Carousel Gift Box using the beautiful Carta Bella Practically Perfect collection … perfect for chasing the winter blues away!
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Practically Perfect Carousel Box 1 600
This gift box makes me feel like I’m walking right down Cherry Tree Lane to an adventure in a chalk-drawn park! I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and a carousel box cut file from the Silhouette Design Store (Design #49865). I LOVE using the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock for projects like this! It’s sturdy, with a beautiful texture that makes your project feel even more opulent!

I used the striped Garden Melody paper to create the roof and topped it with a bright ribbon accented with a paper flower cut with the Flower Set #5 die set. I used a tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack, adding more detail to it with a few stickers and a chipboard phrase.

Each panel of the carousel is backed with the darling patterns included in the 6×6 paper pad. I love the variety! I chose one of the panels to serve as the “front” of the box and added a bit more decorating to the lower left corner with one of the Chipboard Phrases. Fussy cut flowers and solid blue die cut greenery (Spring Greenery Die Set) add texture.

Finish the box with sparkly gems on the scalloped edge of the roof and the center of each star and you have a special gift box ready to be filled with a treat or two! Enjoy!

Carta Bella Paper: Door Gift Bag & Card

Have you tried creating a customized gift bag and card? Today I am sharing a set using the beautiful Spring Market collection by Carta Bella Paper.

The colors and florals in this collection are so beautiful and would be perfect to use for all kinds of springtime occasions. I thought it would be fun to customize a gift bag for Mother’s Day for your mom, sister, or bestie. But it would also be perfect to use for a wedding or baby shower, or even a birthday gift!

All of the flowers and garden tools reminded me of getting outside. One of the first things I like to do in the Spring, is to hang a fresh wreath on my front door and decorate the front porch with pots of flowers. I used my Silhouette Cameo to die cut the door from Kraft Cardstock, and then created a wreath from the Evergreen Shimmer cardstock using the Spring Greenery Die Set.

A watering can, flowers, and more die cut greenery decorate the steps of the porch on this gift bag!

I couldn’t stop there! I couldn’t resist cutting out one of the darling tags from the Floral Tags paper to add to the top of the gift bag.

It’s fun to create a coordinating card to go along with your decorated gift bag. I cut a quote from one of the 6×6 pattern papers and added it to the die cut frame.

A flower pot die cut and more greenery ties it all back to the gift bag for a coordinated look!
