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.

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.

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?

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!
Jana Eubank - American Crafts - Shimelle - Box of Crayons - Lucky Letters 3 600
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.
