Noel Mignon: Happy 10th Birthday

janaeubank_noelmignon_happybday2

Hello! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog for another design team challenge today … this week we are using the word MAGICAL as inspiration for our projects. I took the opportunity to scrapbook one of my daughter’s birthdays, because birthdays always felt magical and special to ME when I was a girl.🙂

HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY

I fell in love with the colorful Thickers in the Buttons & Bows Classic kit this month and really wanted to make them the star on this page. I sliced off the pink section of the Simple Stories “Live Simply” color-blocked paper and used it as a home for my larger title.

I placed the Maya Road lace trim along the edge of the title block to add a feminine touch. The gold puffy Fancy Pants Millie & June stickers add a fun bit of shimmer!

The lower portion of my page is dedicated to the photos. I placed my trio of shots on different colors of cardstock that coordinate with the colorful title above.

Next, I treated each photo as it’s own little vignette; embellishing each one and achoring the journaling cards to them.

How cute is that poodle sticker by Fancy Pants Designs?! And I adore that suede bow sticker from Pink Paislee!❤❤❤

This was a different look for me this time, but I had a lot of fun creating it all the same. I hope it helped to inspire you to scrap the “magical” moments in your life!

Have a great day!

Echo Park Paper: Mermaid Party!

It’s August! And at our house that means it’s time for birthday parties! All of my kids were born during the summer, which means I morph into full party-planning mode during this time of year.
Echo Park’s paper collections are perfect for making your party unique. I couldn’t resist planning an adorable Mermaid party for my daughter using the Let’s Be Mermaids collection … because, let’s face it … being a mermaid is every little girl’s dream!
I used my Silhoeutte Cameo electronic die cutting machine to create everything you see here! A mermaid sandcastle centerpiece, ocean shaker favor boxes, and a crown and wand for the special birthday mermaid!

I created the castle using the castle cut file from the Bedtime Stories SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Decorating the castle was my favorite part! I had so much fun adding all of the little characters around every side of the sandcastle!

I even decorated the sides and back! It’s important for your centerpiece to look lovely from all sides, not just the front, right?!😀

The birthday girl will feel so special wearing a crown and carrying a wand adorned with starfish cut outs.
(Crown created with the Lettering Delights Classic Princess Crown Cut Project found HERE. Starfish wand created with the Echo Park Paper Starfish Image #41495 in the Silhouette Design Store.)

Every crown needs a touch of sparkle! The glitter Enamel Dots work perfectly here.

The wand looks extra sweet adorned with a paper bow made with the Mini 3D Bow Die Set.

I always like to give our guests something extra special to take home. I created these Ocean Shaker Favor Boxes with a little aquarium scene inside the lid.

The fish were created with the Fish Die Set #2 dies that coordinate with the Let’s Be Mermaids collection. I popped them up on foam squares to give the ocean scene a little more depth. A sprinkling of aqua sequins look like underwater bubbles. So fun!

I love to throw parties! And I hope this has inspired you to think outside the box and use your supplies to make your next celebration unique.

Free Download: Echo Park Idea Book

JanaEubank_PartyTime_PartyCake_600

Happy Monday, Friends! Today I am sharing with you one of my projects featured in the FREE Echo Park Idea Book … available as a free download right HERE.

13886915_10210341012386396_720668197313199599_n

For the book, I created a really fun party set using the ADORABLE Echo Park Paper Party Time collection. Here is a peek at the 3D Cake Centerpiece I made. If you’d like to see the favor boxes, cupcake toppers, and party hat I created to go along with the cake, be sure to check out the IDEA BOOK here.

PARTY TIME CAKE CENTERPIECE

JanaEubank_PartyTime_PartyCake_600

I created the three-tiered cake using my Silhouette Cameo machine and the cake cut file from the Happy Birthday to You SVG Set by SVGCuts.com.

The Cake Stand is by Lori Whitlock and can be found HERE in the Silhouette Design Store.

To decorate the sides of the cake, I made several 3D stars using the 3D Hollow Star Ornament by Alaa’K Designs. You can find it in the Silhouette Store HERE.

The stars on the top of the cake were added using sucker sticks that I purchased in the baking section of the craft store.

For the smaller stars, I simply used the negative piece left over from the 3D stars and scored and folded them to create the 3D stars. You can find a tutorial HERE on my old blog on how to do that, if you haven’t tried it before. It’s really easy!

Finally, the sprays were creating using this 3D Firework cut file by Amy Robison, also found in the Silhouette Design Store.

A few gems and some gem border stickers add sparkle and shine and really make this 3D cake stand out.

Have a great week!

Noel Mignon: Birthday Layout and Pocket Page

JanaEubank_NoelMignon_Surprise3

Hello Friends! I have two final projects to share with you using the Noel Mignon July “Summer Lovin'” kits before moving on to the August “Vintage Charm” kits tomorrow.

SURPRISE

This fun sprinkle paper by Imaginisce had me thinking of cupcakes and so today’s page is all about birthdays!

JanaEubank_NoelMignon_Surprise1

In my kit were the adorable bike, flamingo, and balloon die cuts. What you may not know is that the flamingo is one of Camryn’s favorite animals … and on this particular birthday, she received a new bike. Perfect recipe to combine them together, don’t you think?!😀 Especially since, with his bent leg, the flamingo looks like he is pedaling the bicycle. Ha!

JanaEubank_NoelMignon_Surprise3

I used a photo collage template to arrange my photos together in Photoshop. I covered up an insignificant photo in the bottom right corner with patterned paper, so that I could overlap the flamingo and balloon die cuts onto the photo collage. I also added a few punched hearts with pink pearls (from my stash) overlapping onto the photo above. Overlapping embellishments onto your photos helps everything feel more connected, just make sure you don’t cover up anything important.🙂

JanaEubank_NoelMignon_Surprise2

In the top left corner, I created a little cluster of elements. The Just Happy sticker, balloon and arrow sticker all come from the Summer Lovin’ Daily Diary kit. The sun was handcut from one of the patterned papers in the Classic kit. I placed the Just Happy sticker on a punched hexagon to give it a little more presence.

Finally, to keep with the birthday feel, I added a sprinkling of the Queen & Co. orange discs and a few more pink pearls in a confetti-style around the page.

I love how cute and festive this turned out!

I had a lot of fun with the stickers on this page. I used the script words by Jillibean Soup overlapping onto the photos, the chipboard Echo Park icon stickers, and then used the Elle’s Studio puffy stickers to accent things.

The right side of this spread is my favorite!
