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!

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!

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.🙂

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!

A Couple More Cricut Party Items!

JanaEubank_Cricut_ClownBdaySet

Hello Friends! Last time I shared with you a party set I created with the Cricut “Something to Celebrate” cartridge. Today I have a couple items for you using the Cuttlebug Chrysanthemum Quilling Kit. It doesn’t look like this product is available anymore on their website, but maybe you can find it by searching around the web if you’re interested.

Another option would be to create your own fringed paper strips using fringe scissors or something like that, if you’d like to recreate these projects.

CLOWN BIRTHDAY CARD

I know that a lot of people are afraid of clowns, but I think this one found on the Wrap It Up cartridge is actually quite sweet. I used the fringed quilling die to create the pom pom for his hat and the collar to his costume. I also used it to create the flower accent.

The birthday candle number can be found on the Sweet Treats cartridge.

For the tone-on-tone background I used an embossing folder backwards, choosing to allow the folder to DEBOSS the images into the paper, rather than emboss them.

PARTY POPPER FAVOR BOX

Tuck a treat inside this bright favor box adorned with more quilled flowers and then hand it to your guests as they are going home. Box created with the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 cartridge.

Hope you have enjoyed seeing these birthday projects! I’ll be back Wednesday with another scrapbook page using the Noel Mignon Summer Lovin’ kit.

Have a creative week!

Cricut “Something to Celebrate” Party

JanaEubank_Cricut_201200564E_BirthdayCrown1

I was recently going through my digital files cleaning out things that I no longer needed to keep and stumbled across a birthday party set that I created for Cricut back in 2012. They never used it, and so I figured, why not share it with all of you here on my blog?

This set uses one of my favorite cartridges by Cricut, Something to Celebrate. It is full of sweet images that make my creative heart happy! The paper collection used for this set is an oldie (but goodie) by Carta Bella Paper called Alphabet Junction.

First, set the mood for your party and get everyone excited for the occasion by sending out a fun invitation. I know, I know … a lot of people are texting or emailing party information these days, but I think it’s so much fun to receive something tangible. Even if you just drop the invitation by their home, instead of mailing it. My kids love receiving invitations! They carry them around the house for days in anticipation of getting to go and spend time with their friends!

Next, make some fun decorations for the party space. Even a banner draped across the mantle or hung over a window will make the day feel “different” than any other day.

Make the guest of honor really feel loved by giving her a fun crown to wear! I cut out a crown image and then simply hot glued it to a headband. Add a little trim and wah-la! Your birthday princess is ready to shine!

Kick those cupcakes up a notch by poking a cupcake topper into each one. Keep it simple with printables found online, or get more elaborate if you would like. Either way, it will help your table feel more festive!

Finally, one of my favorite elements of a good party … the favor bags! Let each guest know that you appreciate them coming to your party by sending them home with a specially wrapped treat. I always label them with the guest’s name and hand them out as they are going home so they have something fun to look forward to as they are leaving.
