Echo Park Paper: Cruisin’ for a Summer Treat

I am always so inspired by the colors and icons of Echo Park Paper collections. When I saw the Summer Dreams collection for the first time, I just knew I had to make something that would incorporate all of the darling popsicles, ice cream cones, and snow cones. So an ice cream truck gift box it was!

I used my Sihouette Cameo machine to cut out the ice cream truck cut file by SVGCuts.com. I used the Solid Pink paper for the base, and then cut the decorative panels from the Say Cheese, Sweet As Summer, and Summer Vacation papers. I used the Solid Navy/Yellow paper for the wheels and trim pieces.

The window pieces were cut from vellum and then embossed with the Sunny Dots Embossing Folder for a bit of texture.
I added the speech bubble stickers to the front window, so that it appears like the people inside the ice cream truck are having a fun little conversation.

The back of the truck opens up so that you can place a fun treat inside for the recipient. I think this would be a really fun way to wish your child’s teacher (or anyone else) a Happy Summer Break!

The most fun part of projects like this, for me at least, is the embellishing! I added the chipboard “FUN” letters to the awning along with some shiny decorative brads and enamel dots.

It looks like you can walk right up to that window and order one of those delicious ice cream treats, doesn’t it?! The flamingo is there to greet you and take your order.

The other side of the box doesn’t get left out … I decorated it with the reader board sticker, and more chipboard pieces, stickers, brads, and enamel dots. I even added the small chipboard discs (decorative brads) and enamel dots to the wheels. You can never how too much pattern and texture on a fun project like this!
I even created a couple of pinwheels to go with it using the darling Sunny Pinwheel Die Set and the 6×6 papers and decorative brads.

Does this project get you excited for summer?! I am definitely ready to don my flip flops and grab a yummy, frozen treat!

Valentine’s Day Silhouette Projects

Happy Valentine’s Day to you! It’s the day of hugs and kisses and I have a couple of lovey-dovey projects to share with you using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

LOVE FRAME

This first project is just a sweet little home decor item that you can create to brighten up a corner of your home, or as a gift for a friend to display in their home.

I cut out the heart puzzle images on several 6×6 patterned papers from the Carta Bella It’s a Girl collection. I also added an offset white cardstock layer underneath to help them POP a bit. They are adhered to the background paper with thin foam squares.

I then added the script “love” word on top, and adorned the corners with a pretty floral image.

I WHALEY LOVE YOU Gift Box & Card

Isn’t this little whale favor box adorable?!! He was pretty easy to put together. You can find him in the Silhouette Store. I added some hearts on thin wires as his water spout for a Valentine touch.

A sweet little Whale card to accompany him was the perfect touch! I cut the sentiment out of black vinyl to make adhering the sentiment easy-peasy.

He opens up so you can place a yummy treat inside!

Echo Park Paper: Valentine Door Hanger

You gotta love a holiday that breaks up the winter doldrums with the purpose of telling everyone around you that you love and appreciate them! For that reason, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays!
I’m up on the Echo Park Paper Blog today with a sweet little treat door hanger all dressed up for the Valentine holiday!
jana-eubank-valentine-doorhanger-photo-1-600
I used the  Echo Park Paper Happiness is Homemade collection for this project, pulling out the shades of pink, red, yellow and blue.
I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and a door hanger cut file I found in the Silhouette store (#52311) to cut out the base of this project. I used the Solid Pink/Cream coordinating paper for the base and then used papers from the 6×6 paper pad for the accent panels.
jana-eubank-valentine-doorhanger-photo-2-600
I hand cut several of the flower clusters from the Fresh Baked Floral Paper to use as accents around the acetate window on the front of the door hanger, as well as on the handle.

I then layered together a few of the stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet to tell the recipient how fabulous I think they are! Buttons and a sparkly yellow brad (I Love Family Decorative Brads) add texture and dimension.

The top of the door hanger is capped off with a cheery, yellow bow with a red button in the center along with a couple of tags. The woodgrain “Sweet Like Sugar” tag is from the Alpha Sticker sheet and the “Made with Love” tag was handcut from the Made with Love paper.

Echo Park: 3d Paper Kitchen Mixer

Welcome a new neighbor, or let an existing one know how much you appreciate them, with this adorable Kitchen Mixer Gift set.
jana-eubank-happiness-is-homemade-kitchen-mixer-1-600
I immediately fell in love with the friendly, bright colors of the Echo Park Happiness is Homemade collection and couldn’t wait to create something fun with these papers!
I chose to create a 3D Kitchen Mixer Gift Set using my Silhouette Cameo Machine and a cut file I purchased online from Cre8tive Cutz. I used the Solid Red/Yellow Paper and the yellow gingham Spoonful of Sugar papers for the base of my mixer. The sunny yellow is sure to brighten anyone’s day!
The Pastry Stripes paper and cute icons on the Kitchen Essentials papers were the perfect choices to use to cut the accent pieces.
jana-eubank-happiness-is-homemade-kitchen-mixer-2-600
The bowl was created with the blue polka dot Tea Time paper. I added some white scallop felt trim from my stash along the top edge and then filled it with chocolate candy kisses.
The base of this mixer lifts up, so you could even add more chocolate kisses to the inside, if you’d like!
jana-eubank-happiness-is-homemade-kitchen-mixer-3-600
I added a fun cluster of elements to the top corner of the mixer as a focal point. I just love the way the doily stickers look with the kitchen utensils peeking out here-and-there. I then added die cut flowers created with the Flower #3 and Flower #4 Die Sets to both the cluster and to the mixing bowl. Buttons tied with twine in the center of each flower add a homespun feel!

Finally, write out a few favorite recipes on the cut apart recipe cards from the 4×6 Journaling Cards Paper to add to your gift … maybe include a recipe for Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies to help use up all those chocolate kisses?
