Maya Road Guest Blogger: 2016 Family Christmas Ornament

Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another Maya Road project to share with you today!

2016 FAMILY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT

Maya Road sent me the cutest little 6×6 DIY Mini Wood Pallet. When I saw it, I just knew I had to create something with it! I pondered on it and decided that it would make the cutest ornament for our Christmas tree featuring our family photo.

First, I added gold and white 6×6 patterned papers from the Echo Park Deck the Halls collection.

I had the gold ribbon and snowflake sitting on my desk from a gift that my sweet friend had just dropped by to me and was inspired to re-purpose them on this project. I knotted each end of the ribbon and then hot glued it to the sides of the mini pallet to use as the hanger.

Next, I added our family photo matted with white cardstock. To the right of the photo, I added the glitter snowflake accented with a stamped/embossed circle in the center.

I created the circle with the Homemade Holidays Clear Stamp Set by Maya Road, stamping and embossing the circle and “Joy” in gold and white embossing powder.

I accented the bottom corner of the photo with a Maya Road Metal Arrow and Bird Cage emellishment.

I added the year to the top of the ornament using the Maya Road Number Clips attached to Maya Road Linen Mini Pennant Banner Pieces. So cute, right?! To the right side of the year banner I added one of the Metal Royal Key Charms to dress it up even more. So pretty!

I love the way the ornament looks hanging on our tree! The gold/white color scheme matches perfectly!

Maya Road Guest Blogger: Hello Silly Layout

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-5-600

Today and Friday I am guest designing on the Maya Road Blog. They were so sweet to send me all kinds of fun goodies to create with.

The first thing that was calling my name were these delicious yellow felt flowers. Camryn’s favorite color is yellow, so I knew I just HAD to use them on a page about her.

HELLO SILLY

Check out these silly photos of my girl! She received these silly red glasses in a kid’s meal and wore them everywhere for a week.

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-1-600

These gorgeous papers from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life collection were perfect for these photos. I mixed in a few older papers from American Crafts (red polka dot) and My Mind’s Eye (yellow chevron and pink solid color wash) to round things out a bit.

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-2-600

I created three flower clusters on this page. One at the top of the page, one at the top right corner of my photos, and a large one at the lower left, by the title.

I fussy-cut several feathers from the patterned paper, and then paired them with die cut feathers created with the Maya Road Geometric Feather Die. Aren’t they gorgeous?!

The navy leaves were punched using my Stampin’ Up Festive Flower Builder Punch. The punch is meant to create petals for a poinsettia flower, but I think they are perfect for leaves, too!

The title consists of a chipboard script word (Michael’s) and denim letter stickers (WRMK), placed on top of some watercolor pennant tags that I picked up at Michael’s in the Summer.

I accented the title with a couple of Maya Road metal arrows. Aren’t they adorable! I love them so much and added another one to the cluster at the top of the page.

jana-eubank-maya-road-hello-silly-layout-4-600

Creating this big cluster was my favorite part of the page. I just love the way everything layered up together! Such happy bright colors!

SUPPLIES: Cardstock (Navy, Red); Patterned Paper (American Crafts, My Mind’s Eye); Banner Tags & Chipboard Script Word (Michael’s), Denim Letter Stickers (We R Memory Keepers), Felt Flowers/Geometric Feather Die/Metal Arrows (Maya Road), White Spray Mist (Studio Calico), Washi Tape (My Mind’s Eye), Computer and Printer for Journaling, Gray Distressing Ink, Trimmer, Scissors, Adhesives

Thank you again to Maya Road, for sending me so many fun things to play with!

And THANK YOU for checking out my page today! I’ll be back on Friday with another project for Maya Road! I hope to see you then!

WRMK Guest Blogger with Flower Girl

JanaEubank_WRMK_FlowerGirl_JanMargaret5

Happy Friday, friends! I’m so excited! Today I was asked to be a guest blogger over on the We R Memory Keepers blog. I have a bazillion WRMK products in my stash, so you can imagine how excited I was that they asked me! Here is a sneak peek at the Patriotic Page I created using the Flower Girl collection. I also created some really cute gift bags using the Gift Bag Punch Board … be sure to stop over and check out my projects!

I didn’t stop there … no sir-ee! I have a couple more Flower Girl projects to share with you here on my personal blog.

How about a two-pager to get things rolling … it’s been awhile since I have created one of these.

I pulled in a few additional patterned papers from my stash for this one (the small green polka dot and the textbook paper). I also had some fun with my die cutting machine (’cause you KNOW it is my favorite toy in my scrap room!) and cut files from Lettering Delights.com.

The title was cut using the PN Get Creative font. I adore this font! It’s all the goodness of a hand-written font with a little bit of curvy flair!

Aren’t these flower cuts DA BOMB?!!! Find these and MORE fabulous flowers in the Laurels & Florals Cut Project set HERE.

THE PAPER BAG PRINCESS PROJECT

For this page, I started with a light, clean background and a splattering of green mist. I stair-stepped a series of smaller photos and journaling blocks over strips of the Flower Girl patterned papers. I really love the way the scalloped patterned paper ties all the colors of this page together!

I love all of the butterflies in this collection. They are really fun to scatter here-and-there.

And those little birds?! ABSOLUTELY cute!!!

MARYN’S BIRTHDAY MOMENTS

And finally, this one, of Maryn on her birthday a couple of years ago.

My favorite part of this page has got to be the bird-bath cluster on the journal block. I just love those little birds and the way they look framed in the cute wreath die cut. 🙂

JanaEubank_WRMK_FlowerGirl_MarynsBday2NEW

I really loved the paper lantern paper, and thought it would be festive for this birthday page, especially since the restaurant we went to for Maryn’s birthday dinner had similar decorations on their ceiling (see photos). I mixed in a few other subtle patterned papers from my stash so that the lantern paper could really shine.

GIVEAWAY and Live Inspired Video Feature

BMDDFULL-1_1024x1024

Happy Friday, Friends!

Today Tracie Claiborne has a new video and a new challenge posted on her blog as part of her Live Inspired podcast series. In the video she uses one of my pages as creative inspiration for her own layout. Visit Tracie’s blog to see which one of my pages she used!

Live Inspired Logo v2

I thought it would be fun if I scraplifted Tracie back! She has a beautiful, clean style with perfectly placed elements. Her use of color always makes me happy, and she is so great at allocating real estate on her page for the all-important story behind the photos. Here is her cute page I decided to lift. (Be sure to check out more of her work on her blog HERE.)

FOR THE RECORD by Tracie Claiborne

And here is my take on her page using the Noel Mignon Golden Delicious Classic Kit mixed with a few 3×4 cards from the Daily Diary kit

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY by Jana Eubank

I used Tracie’s page as inspiration for my layout, placing photos and embellishments in similar locations. I didn’t have as much journaling as Tracie, so I decided to treat one of the spaces as a title block.

JanaEubank_NHS2

In true Tracie-style, I typed my journaling. 🙂 In place of Tracie’s vertical photo, I used two smaller horizontal photos.

JanaEubank_NHS3

I used a piece of yellow patterned paper and letter stickers from my stash to build the title block. I used the cork elements here-and-there to lead your eye around the page.

Another big THANK YOU to Tracie for featuring me this week. It was such a fun experience!

………………………….

Tracie’s Live Inspired challenge for this week is to make a page inspired by *my* work and post it on your social media using the hashtag #liveinspiredchallenge. And she just *might* have a giveaway up for grabs. *wink*
