Noel Mignon: Remember with a Process Video

Happy Thursday, friends! Yesterday, I shared a layout on the Noel Mignon blog using the November “All Fall” Kits. I waited until today to post my page on my personal blog, so that I could finish up a process video, in case you’d like to see how it all came together. (Scroll down a little bit to find the video.)

REMEMBER

Our challenge this week is called the “Pumpkin Patch” challenge … where we are to use patches of pattern and stitching on our project. I used the 2×2 squares from the Daily Diary kit as my patches of pattern and then added stitching around the other layers.

Here is the video!

And here is a closer look at some of the details.

I pulled in the mushroom rubber charm and the gingham flower from last month’s “Falloween” kits. They worked great here and I was happy to get them used up!

A couple of butterflies to signify friendship …

Carta Bella Paper: Typewriter Gift Box

Are you looking for a fun way to give a gift to your father or grandfather this father day? Or maybe you have a graduate that is beginning their life journey this year? Create a fun gift box for either of these occasions using the Old World Travel Collection with its classic feel.

I created this typewriter die cut gift box using an electronic die cutting machine and the Natural White Linen Designer Cardstock. The typewriter cut file is from THIS amazing set by SVG Cuts.com called “Good Day at the Office.”
Next, I used the beautiful papers from the Old World Travel Collection to add color and a vintage feel.

But the fun part was adding the ephemera and embellishments to the top of the typewriter! I stacked several postcards shapes along with some die cuts, stickers and enamel dots to create the layered clusters in the paper carriage and on the front left corner of the typewriter. The black enamel dots almost mimic black ink droplets, don’t you think?!

I created the keys for the typewriter using the tile letter stickers from the Beach Day Element Sticker sheet. They work perfectly here!

The lid lifts off to reveal a nice-sized box perfect for a paperback book, a card, a fancy pen, a treat, a gift card, or whatever else you would like to give that special someone. Enjoy!

I have a couple of Echo Park projects to share today that I recently created for their blog. Here is the first.

PURSE GIFT BAG

I created this purse gift bag for Mother’s Day, but it would also be perfect for a girlfriend or a sister! I used the adorable Echo Park Paper Petticoats collection, ,my Silhouette Cameo machine, and this cut file by Samantha Walker Designs (#55521).

I love the way the floral Beautiful Bouquets paper looks with the green Sunny Damask paper. I added in soft pink and hot pink accents, too.

I took a few extra moments to add stitching on each panel with hot pink thread and my sewing machine. I love the detailed look this adds to the project!

In the corner I die cut a few roses with my Cameo machine (Echo Park Silhouette Shape called “Roses” #71592) and then added a sentiment from the Petticoats Chipboard Accents sheet.

I would love to receive this fun gift bag with a goodie inside, wouldn’t you? I think the special gals in your life will, too!

This next project was one I created using the Echo Park Paper Pinstripes collection, the brother to the Petticoats collection. I ADORE a good masculine paper collection … and this one is superb!

This project is perfect for filling that empty spot on your son’s bedroom shelf.

I created this rocket using the Silhouette Cameo and this rocket box shape by Snapdragon Snippets (#38292) from the Silhouette Design Store. Of course I had to use the Cars and Stars paper with it’s fun constellation of stars for the body of the rocket! It looks so cute paired with the red Boy Bingo Stripes paper and Stars Foil paper.
I added a Rocket die cut to the side using the 6×6 paper pad and Rocket Die Set. The clouds beneath the rocket were created using the Under the Weather Die Set. I feel like this ship
is ready to shoot for the stars!

I adorned the other side of the rocket with a sprinkling of gears using the Gears Die Set. I cut each shape out twice to give each gear a white shadow … helping them to stand out a bit more. A few dimensional embellishments here-and-there add sparkle and shine.

Stashbusting Pages Using October Afternoon 9 to 5

This year my family and I spent Spring Break cleaning out our storage room and my scrapbook room. It was C-R-A-Z-Y! Our house was a complete disaster zone as we filed through everything, deciding what to keep and what to give up. (We still have a few things to go through, but MAN! does it feel good to have a bunch of crud moved out of this house!)

I’m usually pretty ruthless about letting go of older supplies in my stash, but I have to admit I’m hanging onto things longer than usual these days. I still really love my older supplies! Infact, one of the questions I used to help me pare things down was, “Would I still purchase this to use today?” And the answer to that many times was “YES!” I don’t care anymore that my papers and stickers may be “old news” to others. I still really enjoy playing with them. 🙂

Over the last several years I have refined my personal scrapping style. Because of this, more and more of my things still work for me! But, as I was going through things, I also realized that I need to shift my creating into high gear if I’m going to make a dent in what I already own. *gulp!*

So, with that, I’m hoping to share many more “stashbusters” here on my blog. I hope it doesn’t bore you to see “older” product. If anything, maybe you’ve been holding on to the same kinds of collections and we can inspire each other to create with them, right?! Or you can always look for similar papers in your stash to recreate the looks if you’d like. 🙂

So here is my first round of stashbusters using the adorable October Afternoon 9 to 5 collection. Enjoy!

TYPEWRITER

I initially pulled out this collection specifically to create this page. The typewriter girls were what I had in mind when wanting to document this next memory.

I inherited my grandfather’s typewriter when he passed away. I love using it in my scrapbooking, but my kids also really get a kick out of playing on it. They are fascinated by it and beg me all the time to type their school reports on it. *giggle* I had saved a snippet of paper that my oldest daughter was typing on when she first gave it a whirl and decided to combine it with this random iPhone snapshot to tell about my kid’s obsession with Great-Grandpa Sam’s typewriter.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a little clipboard clamp to place at the top of my journaling. A gem, Karen Foster twine, and a couple of the October Afternoon flags top it off!

JanaEubank_Typewriter2

I also used my Cameo to create a speech bubble journal spot. I accented them with a couple of wood shapes from my stash (XOXO bubble from HSN and hearts from Citrus Twist Kits).

JanaEubank_Typewriter3

I found these 7 Gypsies tabbed cards at Tuesday Morning a couple of weeks ago … they worked as a perfect accent on the side of the page!

JanaEubank_Typewriter4

At the bottom of the page I grouped several wood buttons from my stash along with a wood word by Heidi Swapp (found those at Tuesday Morning a week ago … SCORE!)

JUST YOU & ME

After I finished creating the page above I had the patterned papers fanned out on my desk, just like they are on the page below. I loved how they looked next to each other! That was all I needed to inspire me to get going on this next page!

JanaEubank_JustYouMe1

I sifted through my stash and found a few layering pieces to add in behind my photo; an old dictionary page from a Noel Mignon kit, and some Jillibean Soup ephemera cards that I picked up at Tuesday Morning. The felt hearts are by Pebbles.

JanaEubank_JustYouMe2

I used a Maya Road kraft envelope to hold the title and tuck the journaling card behind. The blue chipboard letters are by Basic Grey, the gold hearts are by Studio Calico, the green paper is an oldie by American Crafts, and the cut file is from the Silhouette design store.

TOTALLY AWESOME

I’ve scrapped this silly photo of my son before when I was on the BasicGrey design team, but never received my page back when they used it for CHA. So, I decided to scrap it again. This time I took it a different direction combining the October Afternoon 9 to 5 papers with some scraps and oldies from my stash.

JanaEubank_TotallyAwesome1

The aqua paper is from the BasicGrey Carte Postale collection, the Green paper is by American Crafts (an older Amy Tan line?), the gray circle paper is from a really old Bella Blvd. school line called Midterm (I couldn’t even find it on their site anymore, Ha!), and the tiny gray dot is from an old collection by SEI.

I created the file tabs at the top of the page using Heidi Swapp dies. The title uses a couple of wood pieces from the BasicGrey Hipster collection; I colored in the top one with a Silver Sharpie marker to bring the gray up to that portion of the page.

JanaEubank_TotallyAwesome2

I also pulled in a few stickers from the October Afternoon Daily Flash Snapshots collection, a green arrow from Bella Blvd., and phrase stickers by Teresa Collins Designs.

JanaEubank_TotallyAwesome3

I created the stars with metal nesting dies by Little B, zig-zag stitching them down the center for a bit more interest.

JanaEubank_TotallyAwesome4

So there you have it! My first round of projects using some stash. I won’t always be able to share multiple projects, there may be days of just one layout, but stashbusting pages are something I want to share more of here on my blog.

I’m still not finished using the 9 to 5  collection yet! (I’m definitely not bored of it yet, so many cute patterns!) I needed to put it away to work on a few design team assignments, but I plan on pulling it out again in the next week or two to use up the remaining pieces. Stay tuned if you would like to see what I do with them!

Have a great day, friends! See you again soon!
