Two-Page Layout: So Very Thankful

This month the Simple Stories design team was invited to participate in the monthly sketch release over at PageMaps.

I adore PageMaps and jumped at the chance to work with one of Becky Fleck’s amazing two-page sketches! I created the layout below using the Simple Stories Happy Harvest Simple Set.

SO VERY THANKFUL

Here is a closer look at the the left side of the spread.

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out a title for my page and then added a pair of fox heads across the top to represent family. The larger fox was cut from one of the journaling cards and the smaller one is from the sticker sheet.

I cut the title out multiple times, trimmed away the word “very” and ran it through the Tiny Dots embossing folder (Kaiser Craft). That bit of texture adds a lot to this part of the page.

I cut out the group of pumpkins from another one of the journaling cards and layered several stickers around it.

More stickers adorn the right side of the page.

One of the 4×6 cut apart cards holds my journaling. I added more stickers at the top and a punched tab at the bottom stamped with the date.

Zig Zag stitching across the width of both pages, ties them together. I LOVE that woodgrain paper. It grounds the photos and feels perfectly “fall.”

I cut out the pumpkin from the journaling cards paper and added more stickers to the right of it to create another embellishment cluster. The shiny gold circle stickers are from my favorite Stampin’ Up Metallic Enamel Stickers. The gold color has a nice sunny, warm feeling to them … a nice change of pace from the silver tone you usually see in shiny stickers.

Guest Designer: My Creative Scrapbook Part 2 of 2

ILoveMCS

I’m back again today with the other two pages I created as the April Guest Designer at My Creative Scrapbook. A big THANK YOU to Pam Rangel for inviting me to play with the gorgeous April Creative Kit this month. I loved using it and loved the pages I created with it!

BLOOM

I began this page with a crisp, white sheet of cardstock. I then placed my photos in a horizontal band across the top of the page, and then added clusters of flowers.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO2

At the top I added a strip of Bloom Paper and ruffled the green polka dot ribbon included with the kits … stitching the ruffles into place with my sewing machine. I love the texture this added to the page.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO2-CloseUp1

I used the Bloom Element Stickers as my title, accenting it with the mason jar of flower and pennants from the same sticker sheet. Die cut leaves from the Doodlebug Garden Flowers Craft Kit and flower stickers from the Doodlebug Spring Things Icons sticker sheet are clustered on either side.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO2-CloseUp2

I added my typed journaling strips below the band of photos. I opted to have two sentences on each strip, as opposed to the single strips I usually do. I think this helped me to include more writing on this page. Yay!

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO2-CloseUp3

I placed the Bloom Element grass sticker at the bottom along with more Doodlebug leaves and a Doodlebug butterfly. Doodlebug critters always steal my heart! They are so dang CUTE!!!

My daughter loves to be outside. On the first warm day of Spring, she can usually be found outside enjoying the sunshine on a blanket with a little picnic lunch that she has packed for herself.

SPRINGTIME PICNIC

Can you tell I LOVED the Doodlebug elements in the Creative Kit?! I combined even more of them together on this happy page.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO1

At the top of the page, I added the acetate sun and cloud die cuts from the Doodlebug Spring Things Odds & Ends die cut pack. Below the sun and clouds I added the four polaroid die cut frames.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO1-CloseUp1

Inside each frame, I added a Doodlebug Icon Sticker critter on top of an embossed white cardstock background. That Tiny Dot embossing is my latest obsession. I have always loved the Swiss Dots embossing folder by Cricut, but this one by KaiserCraft is even smaller and perfect for small areas like this!

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO1-CloseUp2

I used multiple colors of glitter to customize the Root Beer Float Customizable Thickers included in the kit. It’s been awhile since I have used my glitter on a page, so this was lots of fun!

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO1-CloseUp3

I had a blank space to the right of my photo and I wanted to fill the space in a clever way. I used the remaining floral die cuts and stickers to add a layered border. Love it!

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO1-CloseUp4

I used the Flower Garden, Puddle and Spring-a-Ling papers in strips across the top and bottom of my page, adding machine stitching for a bit of texture.

Guest Designer: My Creative Scrapbook Part 1 of 2

ILoveMCS

Hello Friends! This month I am a Guest Designer at My Creative Scrapbook. I had the opportunity to work with the darling Creative Kit featuring the Bloom collection by Photo Play Paper and adorable elements from the Doodlebug Spring Things collection.

I will share two of my projects with you today, and the other two with you tomorrow … so be sure to check back!

HELLO SPRING

This kit has me itching for sunny, Spring days … it’s so happy and bright!

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO3

I love this picture of my Camryn at a family Easter Egg Hunt a few years ago. Her expression on the face is priceless. She is so excited! And I love that her wrists and fingers are covered in Rainbow Loom bracelets and rings. She had spent hours before this family party creating bracelets and rings for all of her cousins. So sweet!

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO3-CloseUp1

You will receive a full package of the Doodlebug Odds & Ends Die Cut Cardstock Pieces in the Creative Kit. The fun thing about this set of die cuts is that it also includes several acetate pieces. I added the flower cluster to the top right corner of my photo.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO3-CloseUp2

I used the acetate viewmaster die cut behind the large Spring Garden Garden Flower at the bottom of my photo. Instead of using the die cut flowers separately, I stacked them on top of each other to create two large layered flowers. The circles are actually the flower centers … but I think it works as a cute little posy. 🙂 I added buttons tied with twine to the centers.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO3-CloseUp3

I used two more of the Doodlebug Odds & Ends die cuts for my title. I also added the frog die cut and a flower die cut. The plaid strip anchoring everything is from the Photo Play Paper Bloom Element Stickers.

……………………………………………………

Several years ago, we purchased a gazebo for our yard. Our young daughters lovingly nicknamed it the “birdcage” and would come home and sit in it together each day after school. My two little chickadees looked so cute sitting there and I couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures of these two sisters.

BEAUTIFUL BIRDCAGE

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO4

I used the adorable Photo Play Bloom papers to layer up a wide center strip for my page. I then created a little scene on the page using the Doodlebug Odds & Ends die cut pieces.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO4-CloseUp1

Then sun/cloud and bird on a branch sit at the top of the page. I added in a smaller cloud sticker for dimension.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO4-CloseUp2

I used the “beautiful” die cut as part of my title. The “birdcage” letters are the customizable Root Beer Float Thickers that are included in the Creative Kit. I used white glitter from my stash to add a bit of shimmer to them. The two little bird die cuts accent either side.
