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.

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.
Jana Eubank - American Crafts - Shimelle - Box of Crayons - Lucky Letters 1 600
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.
Jana Eubank - American Crafts - Shimelle - Box of Crayons - Lucky Letters 4 600
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!
