Noel Mignon: First Two January Layouts

JanaEubank_BirthdayBoy3

Happy Wednesday, Friends! I’m so sorry for the silence these first two weeks of the new year. I feel like I’ve been living in a time warp of sorts behind the rest of the world as I have been taking down Christmas and getting the house back to normal.

We hosted a final Christmas Bash of the season for my family on Saturday, January 2nd, so I didn’t feel like I could take down the tree until after that. From there, it was a full week of de-Christmas-fying the house … I’m so happy it’s finished now! The house seems bare, but CLEAN and FRESH! It’s such a great feeling! It’s getting me in the mood to do some decluttering!

Speaking of clean and fresh … I’m loving the colors of the Noel Mignon January Sweet Charlotte Classic Kit. I’ve created several pages with this kit already and have the first two to share with you today!

#FRIENDS

This first page was created for this week’s theme on the Noel Mignon Blog, the Winter Blues. We challenged ourselves to either use blue as the primary color on our project, or create a page about what we do to fight the winter blues. I picked out a few wintry photos and decided to use this beautiful, aqua blue Dear Lizzy paper as my page background.

For the accents, I pulled in the pink and yellow colors from the kit. I had so much fun adding all kinds of little bits here-and-there. How cute are those feather die cuts from Pretty Little Studio?!

This little grouping at the bottom of my page by the journaling tag is my favorite spot on this page. I love the colors and the little layers that fuse into one another. Makes my scrappy heart happy!

HELLO BIRTHDAY BOY

This next page was one I shared on the Noel Mignon blog last week and just never got around to posting it here. I was REALLY ready for something besides holiday red and green at that point and had so much putting together the yellow, red, and teal colors from the kit. I’m also really loving the “plus sign” motif showing up in a lot of collections lately and used those papers together on this page.

This kit didn’t necessarily come with a lot of red elements, but I was able to pull in a few of the Jillibean soup stickers from the December Mistletoe & Holly kit to sprinkle that color around the page. Here you can see the striped red star, and teal flag sticker (stamped with the “TODAY” stamp from the January kit).

I love the masculine feel the cork and wood elements added to this page. These cork letters are so big and awesome and I adore them!

I shared a couple of my projects using the eBrush machine on my last post … here are a few more!

THANK YOU CARD

One of my very favorite things to do with the eBrush is to create variegated backgrounds. I love how pretty these colors look behind the card I cut out using my Silhouette Cameo machine (also available on HSN)!

YUMMY APRON

Okay, now the floor crew at HSN were teasing me about this apron … they didn’t think the general public thought that veggies were yummy … but I do! Ha! So there! ;) The awesome thing about the eBrush is that you can use your permanent markers to create cool designs on FABRIC! I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to create the stencils for this project, applying each of the colors one at a time. It was so much fun!

PATRIOTIC VISOR

And here’s a fabric project to get you in the mood for the parades and picnics you’ll be attending in a few short weeks. I purchased a plain white visor, then applied vinyl cut pieces to create the design. I think this would make such a fun Summer Camp project for all age groups!

I love titles with mixed fonts and thought it would be fun to use my own handwriting in this title. I wrote the word “Birthday” on a sheet of paper several times using a black marker and then scanned it to create the svg cut file. It was fun! And I hope to make more in the near future.

Thanks for coming by! Have a great day!

BasicGrey R.S.V.P.

Yesterday I had several projects featured on the BasicGrey Blog using the R.S.V.P. collection. I’ll share a few of my favorites here, but if you would like to see them all, be sure to go see the post HERE. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Each year my parents take the kids out on a Birthday lunch and shopping date. They love having the special one-on-one time with Gramma and Grampa.

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_HappyBday1

I had fun combining several of the patterned papers together on this page. And the new Printed Veneer Tags are so swoon-worthy! I decided to use one of them as a home for my title, a 3×4 phrase card and a few die cuts.

PARTY

I used a color block technique on this page about my daughter’s birthday party. Machine stitching between the sections and repeating the circular elements around the page ties it all together. I had a lot of fun “decorating” each of the circles with all the fun products available in the RSVP collection.

And here are a couple of cards … gotta always have birthday cards on hand! :) On this first card, I layered together several frames to serve as the main element of this card. I love how the colors and themes of this collection aren’t too age- or gender-specific. This is one of those cards that would be appropriate to give to anyone.

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_OneYearOlderCard

This next card is great for any occasion. I cut out the red “So Much Happiness” layer and then combined it together with more Snippets, die cuts, and a transparency bouquet of flowers. It was so easy! I finished it off by wrapping the sentiment with a length of string and adding a few candy dots.
