Pebbles Banner Punch Board

I have been playing with the NEW Banner Punch Board by Jen Hadfield and Pebbles Inc. Today I have two projects to share with you using this fun and versatile tool along with the Pebbles Cozy & Bright Collection. Here’s a quick video by Jen Hadfield and Pebbles showing you how the Banner Punch Board works!

First up, I have a festive scrapbooking page where I used the Banner Punch Board to create notched strips for my photos to rest on. Watch the video below to see how I accomplished this.

But that’s not all! After taking a look at the scrapbook page, be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see a Christmas Banner I created with the Banner Punch Board and the Pebbles Cozy & Bright collection.

Let’s take a closer look at each pennant.

I adore the whimsy and fun of a snowglobe, so for this first section, that is what I tried to create! I used an aqua circle cardstock piece for my globe and then added a smaller vellum circle on top that was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. I then added die cut trees and a happy little snowman.

This second section features a snowglobe die cut. I framed it with two layers of vellum die cut ovals, added a puffy sticker elf, and a pair of glittering, peppermint die cuts.

Santa himself, is the star of this third pennant. He is reviewing his list and deciding who will get their Christmas wishes fulfilled this year!

This pennant makes me want to bake up a batch of gingerbread cookies and sip on a mug of hot cocoa. I added puffy sticker candy canes in the palms of each gingerbread cookie’s hand and accented the mug with a red gem.

This friendly little elf is out and about enjoying a wintry walk in the neighborhood. Just like the elf, I enjoy the peace and calm I feel on a snowy, winter night.

I added a pair of candy cane die cuts to accent this snowglobe. I love the woodgrain pattern of the Phrase Thickers that coordinate with this cute collection!

This final section features an elf dancing and singing atop a toadstool.  He has a treat in his hand, ready to share with you as he wishes you a “Holly Jolly Christmas.”

Echo Park Paper: Bewitching Halloween Home Decor

Hello!I’m back with another papercrafting project for your home! This time, we are looking forward to Halloween … my favorite!
Today I am working with the brand new Bewitched collection by Echo Park Paper. This collection features the prettiest, sweetest witch you have ever seen and I couldn’t wait to feature her in my design!

You have probably seen the wood block decor that looks like the blocks are mounted on a candlestick with a knob adorning the top … well, I came across a cut file by MyScrapChick.com that mimics that look except every piece is made out of paper instead of wood! I couldn’t wait to give it a try!
I cut the base for each piece using Carta Bella Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock. After assembling, I used a white ink pad to give the edges a spooky and distressed feel.
The larger block is decorated with the adorable witch sticker from the Bewitched collection. She is flying her broomstick over a circular moon cut from the Trouble Brewing paper. I used the Happy Halloween die set to add a few bats to keep her company.
At the bottom of the witch block I added the “Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet” phrase sticker. I tucked in a floral sticker, the witch’s broom and a spooky cauldron.

The smaller block features the witch’s best friend, a black cat! I own a black cat myself, and so I love to add black cats in my Halloween decor as much as possible! This sweet little guy is peeking out of from a friendly Jack-O-Lantern sitting next to the jar of candy. I used flower stickers and a shiny, black satin ribbon on both blocks, tying them together visually. The sides of both blocks are also both decorated with panels of Witch Hats paper.

Do you have a favorite Halloween icon you like to add to your decor? For me, it is witches, black cats, and jack-o-lanterns … and I was so happy to be able to include all three on this project!

American Crafts: Color Pour!

If you know American Crafts, you know that they are always coming up with innovative new products. They have just released a brand new DIY program called Color Pour! These products help you to create paint pour art in a simple, hassle-free way.

When I received my box of Color Pour goodies, I squealed with excitement! I’ve never done a project like this, and I couldn’t wait to try my hand at it! I was especially happy I was sent a range of aqua paints to play with … (How in the world did they know Aqua is my favorite color?!!) … not to mention all of the fun glitters and mica flakes that were calling my name!

I do have one warning for you … even though it is easy … it’s ADDICTING! 😀 Here’s a quick peek at what I created.

And all of the fun products I got to play with!

I created these two to hang together in my scrapbook room. They are a little bit different from one another … I will explain how below.

First, the top one. This one is my favorite! I just love the way the marbling came out with the bright aqua as the main color.

Besides swirling the paint around on the canvas, my favorite part was decorating the wet paint with the gold and iridescent mica flakes and glitters.

The second canvas was fun to make, too. This time I mixed chunky glitter in with the paint, creating a textured effect.

I had so much fun creating with Color Pour! What paint colors would you choose to create your own piece of paint pour art?

American Crafts: USA Shadowbox

Hello, Papercrafting Fanatics! Today I am up on the American Crafts blog with a patriotic home decor project!
I love to die cut and paper piece with beautiful patterned papers, and so when I was brainstorming what I wanted to create for this upcoming 4th of July, I decided it would be fun to create a patriotic shadowbox out of paper.
Jana Eubank American Crafts 4th of July Decor USA Shadowbox 1 600
I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic die cutting machine to create the frame using American Crafts 12×12 White Textured Cardstock. Next, I went through several American Crafts collections and pulled out anything I could find in red, white, and blue to decorate the squares.
Jana Eubank American Crafts 4th of July Decor USA Shadowbox 2B 600
I used lots of stamping for the top squares. The square in the top left corner uses the “Wild & Free” phrase and stars from the Star Gazer acrylic stamps. I used the Vicki Boutin All the Good Things Set 3 stamps to create the fireworks in the top right square. I then added the red glitter foam letter stickers from the Stickers & Bling collection as a title.
The white paper flowers and red gems are from the Stickers & Bling collection as well!

At the bottom of the shadowbox I created my own flag using my paper trimmer. I cut off the ribbon tails from one of the Star Gazer Shooting Star Embellishments to decorate the flag … and then added a large red gem to the center (Stickers & Bling collection).

I added a bright blue ribbon around the outside, tying it like a present with a fluffy bow on the top! I then finished the frame off by creating a few layered flower embellishments with my Knock Out Flower punches. The leaves are punched and hand cut from Leaf Textured Cardstock, and the flower centers are the Adhesive Flair stickers from the Star Gazer collection.
Do you decorate for the 4th of July? What will you create for your collection this year?
