Echo Park Paper: It’s a Luau!

I’m up on the Echo Park Paper Blog today with a bright and colorful two-page layout.
I have so many birthday photos waiting to be scrapbooked. Last summer my daughter celebrated her birthday by having her close friends over for a backyard luau. The vibrant colors and tropical icons of the Echo Park Paper Summer Fun collection were a perfect choice for this fun get-together!

I had a blast creating the flower clusters using the Summer Bloom Die Set and then using the tropical palm leaves of the Tropical Palms Die Set to accent them. They are beautiful and add such a fun pop to this two-page layout!

I also used the tropical leaves to accent my photos …

and add more interest to the chipboard floral piece at the top of this photo.

The toucan sits on a die cut branch above the title here.

The letters for the title were cut using the Lindsay Uppercase Alphabet die. I cut two colors of each letter for a shadow effect.
I added the chipboard banner pieces to a length of black and white baker’s twine for a fun accent to go underneath my main photo on the right page of the layout.

Queen & Co: Magic & Birthday Layouts

Hi Guys! I’m up on the Queen & Company blog today with two projects!
One of our favorite places to go on vacation, like a lot of families, is Disneyland. The first time my daughter met the characters was completely magical. At the time she was shy around most adults, so it amazed us when she wasn’t afraid to meet her favorite characters.

At the top of the page, I used the Magic Shaker Kit to create Mickey and Minnie mouse symbols. I cut them from black glitter cardstock and then backed them with red and yellow Delightful Dots papers. I filled the inside of the shapes with white Lollies, red and yellow buttons, red diamond topping, and black fimo fun stars. I added a red ribbon to the top of Minnie’s ears and adorned the bottom of the iconic shapes with blue flowers and a magic flair button.

The title was cut on my electronic die cutting machien from the Simple Stripes yellow paper. I added more flair and blue flowers to the title, as well. A few yellow pinwheels feel like pixie dust!

I cut the tickets from the Around the Park Mat Stack and tied them with Red Sparkle String. To the right of the tickets is a shaker Mickey glove. More pinwheels, flair, and flowers add lots of dimension and fun to this part of the page, as well.

Across the bottom of the page the photos rest on strips of patterned papers from the Around the Park Mat Stack, combined with some Magical Tape. Red and black rivets adorn each end of these decorative paper strips.

Sometimes it is hard to catch the excitement of a birthday celebration on a scrapbook page. Not any more! With the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set you can practically taste the sprinkles that are decorating the inside of this cake embellishment!

One of my favorite little details to add to titles is to replace the dot in the letter “i” with something decorative. Here I added a tiny blue petite posie.
There was an empty spot at the top of my page above the title. I simply filled it in with a strip of orange Simply Stripes Mat Stack paper, decorating the end with two green rivets.

Green twine and orange sparkle string dress up my photos, while a sprinkling of petite posies and pinwheels add a party feel to the right side of the page.

My favorite part of this page looks good enough to eat! Check out the slice of cake I created with the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set!
I cut the cake shape from blue and brown cardstock. I used scissors to trim out the “inside” of the cake … leaving just the frosting … and then adhered that frosting layer on top of the brown “chocolate” cake layer. I used a couple of Pom Flowers to the top of the cake for decoration.
Inside the cake are yellow, blue, and orange candy sprinkles toppings that look good enough to eat!

A few more yellow pinwheels and petite posies scattered around the cake add a fun feel.

Noel Mignon: Happy 10th Birthday

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

janaeubank_noelmignon_happybday1

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.
