Simple Stories: Bloom Process Video

Have you seen the NEW Bunnies & Blooms collection from Simple Stories? Even if you don’t have any Easter or Spring photos to scrapbook, the florals and ‘B’ side patterns make this collection a must-have! I am using it today to scrapbook these photos of my daughter and I enjoying lunch together at her elementary school for her birthday.

NOTE: Scroll down if you’d like to watch the process video for this layout!

Some page designs come together quickly for me, while others are a struggle. This was one of those pages that practically put itself together. LOVE when that happens! You can watch my process in the video below.

I thought the ‘Bloom’ title worked well for this birthday layout, since my daughter was blooming into a young lady. šŸ™‚ I love the floral accents on the title pieces in this collection. This piece is from the Chipboard Stickers, but you can find even more in the pack of Foam Stickers. Yay!

The chipboard title, rose and butterflies add dimension to this project, but to add even more pizazz mix in additional dimensional embellishments like the shiny decorative brads and enamel dots.

The machine stitching and distressed paper edges add texture.

Within the last year Simple Stories has added ‘Tags’ and ‘Journal Elements’ papers to their line-up of cut apart sheets with each collection. I love the journaling options this gives for scrapbook pages. I almost always use a journal spot to write the details on my layouts. That way, if I mess up writing the information, I’m not ruining my entire page. I simply cut out another one and try again! And there are so many different styles, colors, and sizes to choose from on a single sheet. Awesome!

Isn’t the Bunnies + Blooms collection beautiful?! Would you use it to scrapbook Spring or Easter photos? Or would you use it as an ‘everyday’ collection like I did here? Tell me in the comments below!

Have a great day!

Echo Park Paper: Lost in Neverland Card Set

Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection!Ā  I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldnā€™t stop. I have six ā€œDarlingā€ cards to share with you today.

Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.

The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!

For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.

I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.

I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.

Doodlebug Design: You Color My World

I think every little (and big) girl goes through a phrase of loving unicorns and rainbows. If you are one of those girls (and WHO isn’t?!) you are going to want to spend a day playing with the Doodlebug Lots O’ Luck collection with all of its rainbow and unicorn goodness!

For my daughter’s 14th birthday, I had my bestie bake her this darling unicorn cake as a surprise. She loved it! It was perfect with it’s rainbow colored mane, golden horn, and delicious pink, Funfetti cake inside.

I began this page by using the Swimming Pool Dots/Stripes paper for my background. I then added a series of patterned paper strips for my photos to rest upon. I gave the main photo a triple mat with white cardstock, Raspberry Textured Cardstock, and the Gold Sugar Coated Cardstock. I called even more attention to the main photo by placing a large circle of Lots O’ Luck paper (green argyle) behind it.

For the title, I used a sticker from the This & That Sticker Sheet. I just love that rainbow and the sentiment, “You Color My World.” I accented this corner of the page with a couple of die cut clouds from the Odds & Ends pack, and Gold Sprinkles.

You KNOW I had to add a unicorn to a page about a unicorn cake! Isn’t she cute with her rosy cheeks and rainbow mane and tail?! I paired her with a couple of hearts from the Odds & Ends pack and then added Matte Sprinkles and Gold Sprinkles to the hearts for dimension.

These papers make me smile every time I pull them out to play with them and you will, too! Have fun!

Carta Bella: Birthday Wish Process Video

I am head-over-heels for the NEWĀ Carta Bella Paper Circus collectionĀ and knew I had to use it for one of my son’s birthday memories.

BIRTHDAY WISH
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Paper Circus Bday Wish Layout 1 600
I had three photos for this page and I knew that I wanted to line them up in a row. I put the largest photo in the center and then the two smaller, supporting photos on either side.
I cut a large circle from theĀ Multi Journaling Cards paperĀ and matted it with a wavy circle that I cut from theĀ Navy Felt Designer CardstockĀ using my Silhouette Cameo. The large red starburst pattern from this paper really draws your attention to the photos and makes them “center-stage.”

Nothing says “party” like a banner! I used a banner punch and the Three Ring Circus patterned paper from theĀ 6×6 paper padĀ to create a mini banner out of the different characters on the cards. The striped triangle pennant pieces were also punched from theĀ 6×6 paper pad. I adhered the banner pieces in a row to my background and then used my sewing machine to stitch across the top so they appear to be strung together.

I used my scissors to cut out a few rows of tickets from theĀ Admission Tickets paper. I used them as a border for the row of photos and the second word of my title to “sit” on. To the left of the title I build a fun little embellishment cluster using theĀ Chipboard Ringmaster and Marching Band MouseĀ along with a couple of fun pieces from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack. (Nothing says “Birthday” like a clown!)

I scattered a few stars around the page to tie things together, and also used them to dot the letter “i” in each word of my title. I love adding little details like that!
