American Crafts: LUCKY Letters

My house was needing some fun color to help us get ready for Spring, so I created this fun St. Patrick’s Day home decor piece using the Shimelle Box of Crayons collection.

I love creating home decor for the seasons and holidays, but I don’t really have all that many things for St. Patrick’s Day. That’s when I decided to use the Shimelle Box of Crayons collection, with it’s rainbow of colors, to create my own rainbow for St. Patrick’s Day!

I cut out this Shamrock box using my electronic die cutting machine and American Crafts textured cardstock. The Shamrock box is a cut file that can be found in the Feeling Lucky SVG Kit by SVGCuts.com. I pulled two green papers from the Box of Crayons collection, the Countdown Paper (green stripe) and the Snapshot Paper (green with white dots), for some variety. The center of the shamrock is decorated with a Glitter Shaker Sticker.

I created the letter boxes using a the Lucky 3D Letter Box Set and Lucky Letters cut files by Snapdragon Snippets (Designs #181270 and #181237 in the Silhouette Design Store). Each dimensional box letter is decorated with the enamel dots for a bit of sparkle. I used the same color as the patterned papers for tone-on-tone texture.
I love the rainbow patterned papers (Spell It Out paper and Writer’s Block paper) I used on the letters “L” and “K.” They tie everything together and the navy background of the brightly colored allow the embellishments I added to them to just POP!

What rainbow is complete without a pot of gold at the end?! I created this one using the Cauldron from the Party On Elm Street SVG Kit by SVGCuts.com. The Box of Crayons does not have a black patterned paper, so I pulled in the Pretty Words paper from the Vicki Boutin All the Good Things collection.
I decorated  the cauldron with a variety of glittery Ephemera die cuts and cardstock stickers. I filled the pot with gold foil wrapped candies that friends and family can snack on as they desire.

Studio 5: FREEBIE Valentine’s Day Door Hanger Cut File

Today I have something really fun to share! I was invited on Studio 5 with Brooke Walker (a local lifestyle television show) to present a variety of Valentine’s Day papercrafting ideas. I have been playing in a sea of pink and red and wanted to share those creations with you today!

(CLICK HERE TO VIEW MY TV SEGMENT ON STUDIO 5)

First, here is a quick look at all of the projects!

One of my favorite Valentine’s Day traditions from when I was a girl was when we would make sugar cookies and then take them around the neighborhood, doorbell ditching each home and leaving the sweet treat on their doorstep.

I am determined to bring this fun tradition back! So I created a Valentine’s Day Door Hanger Cut File to share with all of YOU!

Jana Eubank - Studio 5 - Valentine Cookie Door Hanger Box 1 600

This box is about 1″ deep, allowing you to put in a couple of sugar cookies (I placed mine in a cellophane bag tied with a ribbon) or another treat of your choice!

The file includes decorative panels to decorate the box, as well as this adorable stacked heart embellishment for the front. I stitched the hearts together and then fluffed up each layer to give it some dimension. (You could also staple the hearts together if you don’t happen to own a sewing machine.)

There is also a cute, scalloped tag, a place to write a greeting on the back of the door hanger, and the word “LOVE” (hand-lettered by yours truly) included with the cut file!

Echo Park Paper: Create

I love when a paper collection comes out that celebrates all things crafty! The new¬†I’d Rather Be Crafting collection¬†by Echo Park Paper is so much fun! I’ve been wanting to add something fresh to my scrapbook room decor and decided to use this collection to create today’s project.
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Crafting CREATE Letters 1 600
I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut out the CREATE letters from¬†Carta Bella’s Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock. Once assembled the letters measure 5″ in height, the perfect size for using the 6×6 patterned papers to decorate!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Crafting CREATE Letters 2 600
I chose a variety of papers, layering patterns over solids. I used the¬†Frames & Tags Ephemera,¬†Elements Stickers, and¬†6×12 Chipboard pieces¬†as accents on each letter.

I used the Enamel Dots to add dimension to each flower center and then also sprinkled among a couple of the embellishment clusters.

These turned out so cute! I have a small window sill in my office that these are going to look great on!

Carta Bella Paper: You Could Even Say It Glows

One of my favorite things about Christmas is the magic of twinkling lights. Because of that I am always on the lookout for projects that are able to be lit with a battery-operated candle or light. With a bit of vellum, this Fireplace Box would be so cute placed on a mantel with a light inside! You could even give it to a friend with a treat inside and then include a light so they can use is as a decoration afterward.
Jana Eubank Carta Bella A Very Merry Christmas Fireplace Box 1 600
The idea for this project began with the darling large Santa from the¬†Santa’s List paper¬†of the¬†Carta Bella A Very Merry collection. I LOVE him and just HAD to use him as a focal point for a project. I looked around the Silhouette Design Store and found a cut file for this Fireplace Box and knew he would look so cute next to it unloading Christmas presents for the family he was visiting.
Jana Eubank Carta Bella A Very Merry Christmas Fireplace Box 2 600
A beautiful paper bow created with the¬†Scallop 3D Bow Die Set¬†tops off this box. I also added several branches from the¬†‘Tis the Season Branch Die Set¬†and holly from the¬†Christmas Holly & Berries Die Set. All that foliage really makes this project feel special!

The mantle of this fireplace is decorated with a sprinkling of stickers, along with a chipboard ornament and a bit of holly. The sparkle stickers surrounding this little cluster adds to the magical feel of this project!

In the bottom left corner is a happy holiday greeting, layered over a jar of mouth-watering candy!

Doesn’t it look festive with a light tucked inside! It makes me want to snuggle up with my kids and read them the classic story, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

Do you enjoy creating dimensional papercrafts to decorate your home for the holidays? I love it! These kind of projects always add that magical touch to a room!
