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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

SUPPLIES:

OTHER SUPPLIES:
2 Blue Buttons
White Crochet Twine

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.

Bella Blvd. February Guest Designer

This first page.features two of my daughters and the You Are Loved Illustrated Faith collection.

I used white cardstock as the base of my layout, spritzing it with a bit of teal spray mist, stitching the edges and matting it with a couple of the patterned papers before adding my photos and the other elements.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-2-600
I used the Heavens Paper to set off my main photo and then added  a couple of pennants, clear cuts, and a die cut flower to the bottom.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-3-600
On the left side of my page, I used the letter stickers to spell out my title, stitching the letters down with my sewing machine for a little more texture.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-4-600
At the bottom of my page, I added a clear cut flower and a clear cut XOXO border, that I also added stitching to.

I have had this next photo waiting for the perfect papers to scrap it with for a few years now … I was delighted to receive the Barnyard Collection and knew it would be perfect for this fun memory about my daughter dressing up as a farmer for Career Day at her school
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-1-600
At the top of the page, I layered a couple of the cloud die cuts along with some pennants and hearts to give the sun in the corner a little more dimension. I added red gems to the hearts for a bit of sparkle.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-2-600
For the title, I used the “Smile” acrylic word along the bottom of my photo. I accented the left side with a broccoli die cut and radish puffy sticker.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-3-600
In the bottom right corner of the page, I used die cuts to cover up the pre-printed pattern and create my own little dimensional farm scene. How cute is that chicken and bushel of apples?! I added my journaling on journaling strips created with my computer and sprinkled in a few punched hearts adorned with red gems.

I love how happy and bright this page turned out!

The final page I have for you today features the adorable Secrets of the Sea Collection.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-1-600
A few years ago we visited the Outerbanks of North Carolina. And even though the beach was literally across the street, my kids and their cousins seemed to prefer the ease of the swimming pool. I think it was nice to have snacks and shade just a few footsteps away, and they also enjoyed now having sand everywhere. LOL!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-2-600
To draw focus to my main photo, I placed the title along the bottom edge along with a little ocean scene created with the die cuts, stickers, and puffy stickers.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-3-600
I ADORE the embossed nature of the puffy stickers and couldn’t resist sprinkling those darling, little blue fish everywhere!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-4-600
I placed the larger photos in a vertical column on the page, using one of the 4×6 cut apart cards to ground my journaling strips.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-5-600
The clips, die cuts, and fish puffy sticker were perfect for adorning the “empty” corners of my photo.

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.

jana-eubank-maya-road-2016-family-christmas-ornament-1-600

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!
