PageMaps Sketch: You Are My Guitar Hero

The beginning of a new month means more new sketches from PageMaps! I love the surge of inspiration I feel each month when I see what the designers have created with Becky’s sketches. Here is the page I created for April.

YOU ARE MY GUITAR HERO

For this page, I pulled out some papers from the Photo Play Fresh Picked collection that I purchased last year and mixed them with some items from my stash. (A few of the papers are still available at Scrapbook.com. You will find links to them at the bottom of this post, if you are interested.)

I used the wood plank Farm Fresh paper as the background because it repeated the wood door that is behind my son in the photos.

I then used white cardstock matted with the Fresh Flowers plaid paper.

I anchored my title on a Project Life transparency card with a blue speech bubble on it. Unfortunately, I do not remember which collection this is from, but if you like this look, you can always recreate it with a swash of paint … or try printing your own transparency using some clip art.

As you know, I love fussy-cutting florals … they are becoming a “must-have” on almost any page I do lately! Even though this page is about my son, they still work!

I wanted to add some dimensional accents to this page, and decided to go with wood veneer because they matched the color of my son’s guitar in the photos. I have so much wood veneer in my stash! I really need to put it to use more often!

I’m not sure who the manufacturer of the wood letters are, but the arrows and hearts are by Studio Calico. The wood buttons are oldies-but-goodies by BasicGrey.

The “tag” peeking out from behind the journaling block actually isn’t a tag at all! It is actually a label sticker. I simply punched a hole in it and added a silver eyelet using my WRMK Cropadile. (Yes … I still like using eyelets! *wink*)

I love creating with Becky’s sketches each month. Which one will you choose to create with during April?

Carta Bella Paper: Cartopia Tool Box

Hello! I’m back with a fun project using the Cartopia Collection by Carta Bella Paper. This gift box is easier to put together than you might think!
First, I used my Silhouette Electronic Die Cutting Machine to cut a Tool Box shaped gift box using the Carta Bella Scarlet Red Felt Designer Cardstock.

Next, I cut decorative panels for each side of the box using the red star pattern of the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper.

The handle was cut using Charcoal Grey Linen Designer Cardstock and is attached to the box with silver mini brads.

I used baby powder to deactivate the adhesive on the back of the green Gasoline sticker, punched a hole in the top, and used it as a decorative tag on the handle of the box.
I also added star stickers to the other tag (Ephemera Pack) for a bit of dimension.

Decorate the front with more Ephemera Die Cuts and Stickers, place a treat or small gift inside, and you are “ready to roll!”

Echo Park Paper: Under the Sea Beach Tote & Flip Flops

Do you know someone who could use a little pick me up this summer? Create this fun beach tote and two flip flop boxes with the Echo Park Paper Under the Sea collection to give to them, and they will be feeling “sun-sational” in no time!

I created this beach tote and the two flip flop boxes using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
The beach tote comes from the Luxury Handbags SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Isn’t it absolutely adorable! This is the kind of shape I could cut out again and again and decorate it a different way each and every time! I love how roomy it is, too!
I cut the main body of the beach bag from the dark blue Sea Explorers Paper with a sunny orange polka dotted pocket (Deep Sea Fun Paper). The yellow accents were cut from the Coordinating Yellow/Blue Solid Paper and the striped bottom is the Swimmingly Stripe Paper.

Of course I had a blast decorating the front of the bag with all kinds of die cuts (Frames & Tags Ephemera) and stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. I just love that happy yellow submarine and all of the sea creatures!

I couldn’t resist creating a couple of flip flop boxes to tuck inside. I used the orange dotted Deep Sea Fun Paper along with the navy striped side of the 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper. The top of the flip flop is decorated with the fish pattern from the 6×6 paper pad.

Won’t it be fun to fill the flip flop boxes with a treat and tuck them inside of the beach tote?! I plan to stick a few other treats inside, as well. I can’t wait to see the face of the person I give it to!

Carta Bella Paper: Pirate Ship

Ahoy there, Mateys! What little (or big!) boy wouldn’t love this 3D pirate ship sitting on their shelf?! This was a really fun project to create using the Carta Bella Paper Transatlantic Travel collection.

Jana Eubank Carta Bella Transatlantic Travel Pirate Ship 2 600

I die cut the ship using my Silhouette Electronic Die Cutting Machine and a cut file by Cre8ive Cutz. It looks daunting, but it was so easy to assemble. The papers of the Transatlantic Travel collection are what really make this project look special

The bottom of the boat was cut from the Take the Ride Paper. I added panels in Travel Gazette Paper (stripe) and the polka dot paper from the 6×6 paper pad. The stripe really gives this project a pirate feel! I added strips of the stripe paper to the sails, as well, to balance the pattern and keep the pirate-feel going throughout.

I added a cluster of die cuts from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack and Ephemera Pack to both the side of the boat and the ship’s sail … beckoning you to go on your own high sea adventure!
Black enamel dots from the Echo Park Wedding Bliss collection give the cannons some dimension and shine.

I added eyelets and jute twine to the sail to make it more realistic. I always love adding textural elements like this to a project!

At the top of the ship is a spooky pirate’s flag flying proudly. The skull image is by Echo Park and can be found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #80358).
I tied on a couple of tags from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack for a bit more detail here, as well.

Inside the ship I added a liner of the Travel Map Paper with the compass pattern.
And how cool is the sail with the script pattern on the front and the map pattern on the back. Eek! I love it so much!

Thanks for letting me share this fun project with you! My little swashbucklers are already clamoring at who gets to keep this one in their room! Ha!
