Echo Park Paper: “You Are PAW-some” Dog House Treat Box

Hello, friends! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a fun dog house-shaped treat box for the dog lover in your life. I used the adorable new A Dog’s Tail collection for this project. Check it out below!

I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutting machine to cut out the dog house using a house cut file from the Gingerbread Chalet Village SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. The base of the box is cut from the Puppy Play Paper. The roof was cut from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock and then covered with Furry Friends paper shingles (green polka dots). I created the shingles by cutting out small rectangles using my Silhouette Cameo and then adhering them one-by-one to the roof.

Next, I added a piece of acetate over the dog house door and added some grass border die cuts (using a metal die from my stash) along the bottom of each of the four walls. I then decorated the front of the house with several stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet and a dog that I fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I die cut the heart above the door using the Postage Stamp Die Set (an older metal die set by Echo Park Paper).

I placed a treat inside of a cellophane bag, tied it with a bow, and then placed it inside of the gift box. I then tied everything closed with a cheery, red, plaid ribbon.

Every gift needs a cute tag, don’t you think?! The tags in the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack make it easy! I attached one to the bow at the top of the box using a bit of white twine, and then decorated the tag with a few small die cut hearts (Flower Set #5 Die Set).

Echo Park Paper: Camping Trail Mix

Do you know someone who loves trail mix? I happen to know several people who would be delighted to get a large jar of trail mix as a gift, … it is their favorite treat! (And one of mine, too!)
For today’s project I decorated a large jar of this peanut-ty treat using the Carta Bella Paper Gone Camping collection. Your outdoorsman would be delighted to receive this as he is heading out for a day of fishing. I mean, who wouldn’t love having a delicious snack to take along?!
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Paper Gone Camping Trail Mix 5 600
The first thing I did was wrap the jar with a strip of the striped Campout paper. I then added a band of the the fishing lure patterned Fly Fishing paper on top of the striped paper.  The top of the jar is decorated with a circle cut from the plaid paper in the 6×6 paper pad.

Next, I fussy-cut three wood slices from the Travel Patches paper and grouped them together on the front of the jar to anchor the rest of the decorative elements. The main piece is the Fishing Tackle Die Cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack. I added the fisherman sticker on top of the die cut along with a few trees and the “Fishing Hole” sign stickers for a bit of scenery. A few die cut pine branches (Be Merry Branch Die Set) are tucked behind the left side.

I tucked in a few more branches cut from the Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock on the right side of the label, and then added a group of fish “caught” … I mean CUT … from the Fish Facts Paper. A bit of jute tied around the neck of the jar finishes everything off!

DCWV: Garden Charm Paper Pad

I LOVE shopping for scrapbooking supplies just as much as I love using them! One of my weekly jaunts is to my local Tuesday Morning store to see what is new in the way of scrapbook supplies. I love all the Latest-and-Greatest … but I love collecting older supplies that match my style of creating, too!

A week or so ago, I picked up the beautiful “Garden Charm” paper pad by Die Cuts with a View. It was only $5. I knew I could create a few pages with it and then be happy to pass the rest of it along to a friend for that price!

Here are the pages I created with these beautiful papers.

First, a double page layout about Memorial Day.

REMEMBER

I loved how several of the papers had a shiny coating on the pattern. The tone-on-tone glossy pattern printed on the kraft paper is so cute!

If you read my journaling, you will see that my parents purchased and had their own headstone placed next to my grandparents grave at the same time they were ordering the headstone for my grandparents. They revealed it to us this Memorial Day when we went to take flowers to my grandparents.

It really struck me as weird (don’t worry … my parents know I feel this way. Ha!) … but I also understand them wanting to prepare so that WE, their kids, won’t have to wonder what they would have wanted. My parents are great about thinking through the details of things ahead of time … but I hope I won’t have to appreciate their foresight on their headstone for MANY, MANY years.

The canvas, red, polka-dotted flowers are something that have been waiting for me to use in my stash for WAY too long. They are by Jillibean Soup and were one of the first products I purchased from that company. I’m so happy they found a home on this page. They look darling here!

The metal arrows were another recent Tuesday Morning find and work great as a page element to emphasize the title.

While I had these supplies on my desk, I created a similar single page using the exact same color scheme and rest of the canvas, polka-dotted flowers.

ENJOYING THE WINDMILLS

I LOVE using several different letter stickers for a longer title. I don’t do it often enough, because it takes more time to make the words fit just right, but I’m always happy with the results every time I DO do it!

Those punched birds were a recent score from a local online ad. A man had a box of several McGill punches that he was selling for $2 a punch. I had never seen these birds before, and I ADORE them! I’m so happy to add this cute punch to my arsenal!

For this page, I used metal dies to add several leaves and branches around the canvas flowers, creating one large cluster. I LOVE how it turned out! And the trio of red pearls makes me happy, too!

Again, you can see the adorable tone-on-tone thermography (I think that is what it is called), on the kraft background paper. Polka dots always steal my heart!

Okay, one last simple page with the Garden Charm papers …

GRANDMA’S BEDROOM

For this page, I pulled out the blue, kraft, and purple patterns from the paper pad and combined them together on a white patterned paper background from my stash (Pebbles – Walnut Grove – Harriet paper).

I picked up these blue flower stickers at Dollar Tree, of all places, several years ago. Blue was my grandma’s favorite color, so they were just so perfect for this page about her bedroom.

I used gold thicker letters for the title and then used a flourish/scroll metal die by Recollections to add some detail above.

Are you a bargain shopper when it comes to your scrapbook supplies? Do you collect bargains and rarely get around to using them (like me)? Maybe challenge yourself to create a few pages with your most recent finds this week! I’m glad I did!

See you again soon!

Carta Bella Paper: Exploring and Discovering the World with the Passport Collection

My daughter spent the past three months on a Study Abroad program with her university visiting England, France, and Italy. She had a blast! This was one of the first selfies she sent home and I just had to scrapbook it using the amazing Passport collection by Carta Bella Paper!

Jana Eubank Carta Bella Paper Passport Explore Layout 1 600

I layered a strip of the red and blue “Air Mail” striped Tourist Class Paper along with a border sticker across the top left and bottom right corners of the page. At the top I clustered together a few stickers and chipboard accents.

I cut out a few of the horizontal cards from the Journaling Cards paper and layered them behind my photo. I added a chipboard airplane to the top right corner of the photo along with a few die cut clouds created with the Spread Sunshine Die Set.

A couple of tags peek out on the left side of the photo!

I used two word stickers layered together to create the title for the page. To the left, I created a fun cluster using the globe and suitcase chipboard stickers.

The green London tag indicates the first city my daughter visited! I added the “Here” chipboard sticker to let the viewer know.

I have never been to Europe, but I hope to go someday. Have you?! Have you recorded your memories from that trip? Why not use the amazing Passport collection to get started?
