First off, set the stage by decorating your mantle, front door, or stair rail with a fun banner. Here are a few shots of the details.

Next, set each place setting in a special way. I found these green plates and mugs at the Dollar Tree. With a place mat, doilie, decorated mug and napkin ring … anything can be special … even paper plates!

Decorate each plate with a little paper house. Put a treat or a battery-operated tea light inside … or both!

Place a row of mason jar snowglobes down the center of the table for a wintry feel!

Or how about this cute, stacked snowman?

The kids at the kids table deserve a fancy treat, too!

These character canister boxes would look cute sitting on a shelf, or adorning the table.

As a quick reminder, there is just ONE DAY LEFT to enter my CARTA BELLA GIVEAWAY. Click here or scroll down to be taken to the giveaway post. The winner will be announced on Friday.

Last year, as I was shopping for Christmas presents, I stumbled across these adorable Espari dolls. I couldn’t get over how much they looked like my daughter and my niece. These two cousins are the best of friends … and so I thought it would be fun to give them the doppelganger doll of one another as a token of their friendship. They loved them!

I have been dying to use these poinsettia stamps by Stampin’ Up on a project … so I pulled them out to use on my first page with the Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits. (There are still a few left in Noel’s shop if you are interested in checking them out. The Oh, What Fun Classic Kit is HERE, and the Daily Diary Kit is HERE. )

My title was created using my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine. I cut it out twice using red and white cardstock so that I could create an offset shadow for the word.

Around the title I placed those adorable mini acrylic stars by Pretty Little Studio. They were included in the Classic Kit this month along with several script words. I used one of the words to accent the bottom left photo on this page.

My photos are stacked on top of each other with a red cardstock mat. I placed a few more 6×6 paper layers behind. I just love those mini patterns!

Here is a closer look at the stamped poinsettias I made using the Reason for the Season stamp set by Stampin’ Up. I stamped the outline in black ink. The stamp set comes with shadow stamps that make the leaves and the petals look shaded. I stamped them in red and green ink, and then used colored pencils in slightly different shades to finish filling them in. I love how they turned out!

Echo Park Paper: Christmas Ornament with Deck the Halls

jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-6-600
The first thing I want to do when decorating my home for the holidays is put up the Christmas tree! The twinkling lights and glittering ornaments immediately put me in the mood for the Christmas season.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-1-600
For my ornament today, I am using the Deck the Halls collection. I love the gold foil accents included throughout … and thought it would be perfect for catching the light and adding a bit of shimmer to our tree.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-3-600
First, I created a frame ornament base using the Festive Plaid Paper, with it’s shimmering gold foil lines, for the outer frame. The blue snowy background of the Border Strips Paper is the perfect backdrop for the Christmas tree sticker from the Element Sticker sheet.
I cut the frame ornament using my Silhouette Cameo machine and a cut file from the Spirits of Christmas Past SVG Kit by SVGCuts.com.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-2-600
On top of the tree, I placed the “Merry” chipboard sticker. Below the tree the “Tis’ the Season” chipboard sticker, accented with a holly sticker, gives the tree something to rest on.
jana-eubank-deck-the-halls-ornament-photo-5-600
My favorite part of this ornament has got to be the floral cluster at the top. I die cut several holly leaves (Floral Holly Die Set) from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock to place behind the chipboard sticker. The lighter green berry sprigs were created using the Autumn Leaves Die Set and the green side of the Festive Plaid Paper.

For more dimension, I used the Floral Holly Die Set again to cut a couple of poinsettia flowers from Scarlet Red Designer Cardstock. The center of the flower gets a little sparkle and shine with the glittery gold enamel dots.

I can’t wait to place this ornament on my Christmas tree this year! It’s the perfect little vignette of what I love about the season … a glittering Christmas tree against softly falling snow.

Christmas Delivery Details 2 Enjoy Frame & a GIVEAWAY!

jana-eubank-carta-bella-christmas-delivery-details-2-enjoy-frame-photo-2-600

This week I have been working on getting our holiday decorations up all over the house. The Christmas music is blasting and the holiday ambiance is in full swing … I LOVE it!

This year, I added a new decoration to our decor … this darling Pocket Frame by Details 2 Enjoy!

jana-eubank-carta-bella-christmas-delivery-details-2-enjoy-frame-photo-5-600

Details 2 Enjoy were generous enough to send a few of us on the Echo Park Design Team a frame to play with. I received the Size C Pocket Frame … perfect for using with 12×12 scrapbook paper!

What is so cool about these frames? They are a shadow frame of sorts … the top piece of the frame is attached with magnets. You remove it to reveal two panels that slide in and out. These panels can be changed out whenever your heart desires … making these so much fun to decorate for seasons, holidays, different color schemes, etc.

Watch the video I made of the bare frame before I began my project to see what I mean.

I began my project by painting the frame with gold acrylic paint.

Next, I used the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery collection to decorate my frame.

jana-eubank-carta-bella-christmas-delivery-details-2-enjoy-frame-photo-2-600

I covered the inside panel with the dark green Border Strips paper with it’s pine pattern. Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut out the sentiment (Merry and Bright by Kristen Magee, Design #98879) in two papers; Natural White Linen Designer Cardstock and the red tone-on-tone pattern of the Black & Cream Plaid paper.

For the top hexagon shaped panel, I covered it in the beautiful Festive Florals paper . Then I used strips of the red Black & Cream Plaid paper to add a border to the hexagon opening.

jana-eubank-carta-bella-christmas-delivery-details-2-enjoy-frame-photo-4-600

The poinsettia flower was cut with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using an Echo Park Paper shape from the Silhouette Design Store (Poinsettia Design #48509). I cut the flower from the red side of the Black & Cream Plaid paper and the Scarlet Red Felt Designer Cardstock.

I spritzed the red flower shapes with dark red Glimmer Mist to give them a bit of a sheen. This will look so pretty in the twinkling Christmas lights at night, right?!

The leaves were cut from the green side of the Festive Florals paper.

I also cut several pine branches from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock using the Joyful Pine Die Set. I LOVE this die!!! It’s a must have for any Christmas project!
