I used the Wish Come True Paper matted with the Purple Solid Paper as the base to my layout. I then added strips of the 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper (pink sparkle pattern) and Stardust Stripe on top.

I grouped my photos together in a band across the bottom of the page, and then created a cute princess scene along the top of them using all of the adorable Element Stickers … totally girly in every way!

Queen & Company: Birthday Boy

Happy Friday, Friends! Today I have another scrapbook page to share created with the June “Pretty Presents” kit by Queen and Company.

I have so many birthday pages to catch up on, so you can bet that the June Kit is getting a lot of use from me. The problem, for me, is that not all of my birthday event photos are the most beautiful technically. They are usually dark or slightly blurry due to the fact that I am snapping them early in the morning, late at night, or in a hurry. I’m so thankful for happy, bright, and cute birthday products that help to convey the fun of the day. You can see what I mean by checking out the page below.

BIRTHDAY BOY

Our kids always choose a place to go for their birthday dinner. Without fail, my son always chooses a family fun center … because of the two-for-one factor: dinner and arcade games! The problem is that it is always dark inside of these types of establishments.

I chose to focus on the bright, primary colors of the kit with a red/blue/green/yellow color scheme. I used the 6×6 paper pad to create a color blocked page design and then added the shaker presents to two of the blocks as accents.
I also used one of the stamps to add a phrase banner above the bottom present.

I created shakers from the two larger present shapes, and then chose to place a solid piece of paper on top of the small present shape for a flat die cut embellishment. I love the confetti feel of the shaker presents! They really help to add a celebratory flair to this page!

I used a large circle punch and the 6×6 paper pad to add a trio of circles, around the three areas of embellishment on this page: the title. the journaling, and the accent square. This keeps your eye moving around the page.
I really loved the way these papers brightened up my otherwise dark and dull birthday photos. It helped to punch up the design and memorialize my son’s special day.

Queen & Company: “Make a Wish” Layout with the June Kit

The Queen & Company June Kit is is now available and today I am up on the Queen & Company blog sharing my first project created with it. I have so many birthday layouts to catch up, so this kit was perfect for me!
MAKE A WISH
Jana Eubank Queen and Company Make a Wish Layout 1 600
I began this page by using my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic cutting machine to cut the circular background shape (Assorted Lace Circle by Jamie Koay Design #45588 from the Silhouette Design Store). I used the adorable papers from the Pretty Presents 6×6 paper pad included with the kit to back each of the openings in the shape. For added texture and definition, I pulled out my sewing machine and added stitching in between each section of paper along the diamond pattern of the circle. It looks awesome!

I then used my machine to cut the “Star Swag Banners” by Sarah Hurley (Design #52883 in the Silhouette Design Store) to add a fun party-feel to the top of the page. I love the subtle look of the white on the light blue background paper! They have a very sweet feel about them!
The swag banners were each one long curved piece … I simply used my scissors to cut them apart and adhere the pieces in a way that looked best for my page design.

I used my Cameo again to create the title. The letters were cut in different patterns from the 6×6 paper pad to coordinate with the multi-colored circle background. I love all the color! The title shape I used is was the “Make A Wish” by Echo Park Paper (Design #136637 in the Silhouette Design Store). I added an offset border of white cardstock around the “wish” letters and then enlarged the “Make A” portion of the phrase to fit across the top.

Of course I had to create a trio of birthday presents to accent my photo. Two of them are shakers and the one in the background is flat. I die cut the shapes multiple times from different colors of cardstock and patterned paper so that I could piece them together and create a multi-colored die cut.
To the right of the birthday presents, I used a stamp from the kit with bright blue ink to create another accent piece. (Stamped greetings can definitely be used for more than cards!)

I used the same paper pad from the June Kit to build up several layers behind my photo, offsetting each layer a little bit from the previous one. To visually anchor the circular design to the page, I cut the 6×6 papers into two strips. I adhered them next to one another hiding the seam behind the circle so that it appears to be one long paper strip.
SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: white, green, blue, yellow
Sizzix Big Shot Manual Die Cutting Machine

Sewing Machine/White Thread
Computer/Printer for Journaling
Paper Trimmer/Scissors
I hope you enjoyed this birthday page today! The colorful papers in the June Kit are so much fun to work with, and I love the unique accents I was able to create with the shaker present dies! Too cute!
Thanks for coming by!

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.
