Carta Bella Paper: Never Grow Up Layout

Hi, Everyone! The Carta Bella Toy Box collection not only takes me back to the days when I was younger, but also when my kids were younger. I giggled when I saw the Magic Toy Room paper because it reminded me exactly how my son’s room looked when he was a little boy.

Today I used this collection to document my son’s 12th birthday. The Toy Banner paper was so much fun to fussy-cut and use as a decorative element across my page.

I popped the banner pieces up on foam squares to give the page some depth and then added several of the chipboard pieces and gem brads from the Decorative Brads set for even more texture.

I even added a banner across my journaling block.

At the top of the page, I added a chipboard phrase and then embellished it with the Decorative Brads. The large chipboard circle accent is adhered to a red button. I love the way this looks! It’s such a fun way to frame out those chipboard circle pieces!

I did the same thing with another red button at the bottom of the page.
The “Never Grow Up” chipboard phrase acts as the title on this page. To the left of it I added one of the darling Mini Paper Fans.

I love the way this one came together. The Toy Box collection was perfect for documenting these birthday photos! I think I will use it again to scrapbook my son blowing out the candles on the cake!

Carta Bella Paper: Toy Box Backpack Activity Set

Keep your little one entertained with this fun activity set! I created a paper backpack with the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection filled with notepads and crayons that I think would make the perfect gift for a toddler. There is even enough room in the backpack to add a snack!

I cut the base of the backpack from the Magic Toy Room paper with it’s darling blue plaid pattern. On the flap I added a decorative panel with the toy guns, and then created a tag to hang on the handle.

The tag was created with the Rounded Tag Die Set. I added the chipboard plane, and a word sticker from the Elements Sticker Sheet. Sparkly, gem decorative brads hold the handle in place.

The front of the backpack has a yellow polka dot pocket that is decorated with all kinds of fun toys from the Chipboard and Element Sticker sheets.

Stampin’ Up: Eastern Palace Suite

Stampin’ Up has a new suite of products available called Eastern Palace, and from May 1st through 31st you can purchase them in two great bundles; a Starter Bundle and the Premiere Bundle.

Stampin’ Up was kind enough to send me a Premiere Bundle to play with. Here is a peek at what is included.

I’m loving the rich colors and patterns and found them perfect for a couple of masculine layouts I wanted to create about my son. I thought I would share those with you today!

BRACES

I had so much fun using the papers stamps and dies on this page!

My favorite part of creating this layout was definitely working on this panel of accents. I used the dies and stamps to create multiple medallions and then arranged them in a diamond pattern above my title. I used foam squares to pop up the embellishments for lots of dimension and then added a few pearls from my stash to accent the center of each one.

The title was created with another set by Stampin’ Up called Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set. I used the Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide inks to create the letters.

I also added a few leafy branches from the Crazy About You Stamp Set. I used the Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist inks. The script words come from the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set.

Here is one more angled look at the layout so you can see all of the delicious dimension on this one! 😀

OWEN’S BAPTISM DAY

For this second page, I cut the background paper in a classic artisan label shape.

I used the dies and stamps with the Tranquil Tide ink to create the medallion accents. I simply used a 3″ circle punch to punch around the circular die shape and then added them to my page.

I used the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set again on this page to create my title. This time, I used the circular shape randomly behind the letters to add interest, and then cut around the title with a pair of fine-tipped scissors.

At the bottom right of my photos, I used the stamps and dies to create two more page accents. I loved layering the pieces up on one another using foam squares to give it lots of dimension, like I did on the previous page.

Echo Park Paper: 3D Book Box

Every young boy needs a special place to stash his treasures, and this 3D Book Box created with the Once Upon a Time Prince collection is the perfect way to do it!
Jana Eubank Once Upon Time Prince Book Box 8
The base of the box was cut using an electronic die cutting machine from Navy Felt and Natural White Felt designer cardstocks. The decorative panels of the book were cut using the Royal Kingdom and Shiny Shields papers.
I cut the knight from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper to decorate the front of the book, along with a mini paper fan, ephemera die cuts, die cuts, stickers, and a dragon from the Enamel Shapes.
Jana Eubank Once Upon Time Prince Book Box 4
I used the Hero die set to add a pennant behind the knight, and a crown to the mini paper fan. I also added a some green foliage cut using the Holiday Branches die set.

The spine is decorated, too!

Inside the box you will discover it has also received the royal treatment with the Charming Words paper, another cut apart from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper, and a liner from the 6×6 paper pad.

Now your little prince’s trinkets will be kept safe in his new secret hiding spot. Enjoy!
