Here are a few cards I came up with using the Carols of Christmas Bundle (Clear Stamps and Die Set). (They can also be purchased separately HERE.)

Deck the Halls with Poinsettias Card

For this card, I used the frame builder die on the white card base. I then backed the openings with green, red, and navy cardstock. Next, I cut a rectangle from the Echo Park Paper Deck the Halls 6×6 Paper Pad to place in the center of the card, and the proceeded to build up my design from there.

I used the Banner Triple punch (one of my favorite punches EVER!) to create the layered banners behind the circle sentiment. The sentiment is stamped in red (from my stash) and Emerald Envy Ink. I then added a couple of clusters of the stamped poinsettias in the same inks as accents. The flowers get a touch of sparkle with rhinestone centers.

Peace on Earth Card

I couldn’t resist using the night sky die cut across the top of this card. I used Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock for the background of the card, backing the moon and stars with a scrap of glitter paper from my stash.

The sentiment is stamped with Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron Inks by Stampin’ Up. I then hand cut a few snowy hills and a winter pine tree (Carols of Christmas Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies).

I added a few gems from my stash to over the circular stars, embellishments for the sentiment, and as accents around the deer at the bottom of the card.

Deck the Halls Ornament Card

This last card was a lot of fun! I began by stamping the ornaments across the top of the card front using Crumb Cake Ink. I then stamped  the ornaments on a scrap piece of paper in Night of Navy, Emerald Envy, and red inks.

After cutting the ornaments out with the coordinating die, I added them to the card with thin foam squares. I then stamped some sparkles around the ornaments with Mint Macaron ink.

I stamped the sentiment in both Emerald Envy and red inks and then used fine detail scissors to cut out each word. I then popped the phrase up on thin foam squares on a strip of Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock (Carta Bella Paper), accenting the top and bottom of the Navy strip with Scarlet Red Felt Designer Cardstock (Carta Bella Paper). The striped strip of patterned paper at the bottom of the card is again from the Deck the Halls 6×6 Paper Pad by Echo Park Paper.

Noel Mignon: JOY

It has been so nice to be able to spend time with my family this week … it’s my favorite thing about Christmas Break! And it is also the topic of my page today.

JOY

This is my last page with the Noel Mignon “Oh What Fun” kit and also my last page with the design team. I have LOVED being on Noel’s team and will continue to love and support her kits, but it is time for me to open up some time for new opportunities and new goals. Thank you, Noel, for inspiring me with your gorgeous kits! I have loved the time I have spent designing with them!

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-joy-layout-1

Starting Christmas Eve, we get to just BE together. We open presents, laugh at what picked out for each other, take lots of pictures, eat, giggle, make jokes, … and just MAKE MEMORIES.

It is my favorite part of the season. Everything is DONE. And we can just enjoy one another.

I used both of the Noel Mignon December Oh What Fun kits on this page, and had fun clustering lots of little bits together.

I made this tag look like a present by adding a die cut bow (Stampin’ Up Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies) to the top. The other two elements are cut aparts … that look like a stack of letters to Santa.

I couldn’t resist using those two big, beautiful, gorgeously-red, poinsettia blooms together on this page. I used the AWESOME, Must-Have dies by Stampin’ Up to add greenery around the flowers (Stampin’ Up Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies). Just so pretty!

I hope you have been enjoying your week with your family!

See you again very soon!

Noel Mignon: Christmas Cookies

Are you ready for Santa to come down your chimney in a few days? Have you made or bought your favorite Christmas cookie to share with him?

My page today is about our family’s tradition of baking gingerbread cookies every year.

CHRISTMAS COOKIES

I used both of the December Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits on this page, pulling out the whimsical elements and using a cheery color scheme of pink, red, green, white, and tan … the colors of a gingerbread house!

The puffy stickers from the kit kind of remind me of piped icing on a fancy Christmas cookie with their shiny, squishy appearance. I made sure to sprinkle lots of those cute puffy stickers around the page.

I cut the two gingerbread people from a 3×4 cut apart journal card from the Holly Jolly collection by Pebbles. I created a little candy cluster with them next to the title pairing them with the candy cane die cut. The candy cane is accented with two punched holly leaves, using my favorite Holly Berry Builder punch by Stampin’ Up.

The brown accent color gets sprinkled in two other places around the page to form a visual triangle … the brown wood veneer shape at the top of the page …

… and the cute reindeer die cut shape accenting the journal block.

I had so much fun adding all kinds of little bits on this page! My kids may like to enjoy decorating gingerbread cookies … but scrapbook pages are more *MY* speed. Hehe!

Merry Christmas!

Maya Road Guest Blogger: 2016 Family Christmas Ornament

Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another Maya Road project to share with you today!

2016 FAMILY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT

Maya Road sent me the cutest little 6×6 DIY Mini Wood Pallet. When I saw it, I just knew I had to create something with it! I pondered on it and decided that it would make the cutest ornament for our Christmas tree featuring our family photo.

First, I added gold and white 6×6 patterned papers from the Echo Park Deck the Halls collection.

jana-eubank-maya-road-2016-family-christmas-ornament-1-600

I had the gold ribbon and snowflake sitting on my desk from a gift that my sweet friend had just dropped by to me and was inspired to re-purpose them on this project. I knotted each end of the ribbon and then hot glued it to the sides of the mini pallet to use as the hanger.

Next, I added our family photo matted with white cardstock. To the right of the photo, I added the glitter snowflake accented with a stamped/embossed circle in the center.

I created the circle with the Homemade Holidays Clear Stamp Set by Maya Road, stamping and embossing the circle and “Joy” in gold and white embossing powder.

I accented the bottom corner of the photo with a Maya Road Metal Arrow and Bird Cage emellishment.

I added the year to the top of the ornament using the Maya Road Number Clips attached to Maya Road Linen Mini Pennant Banner Pieces. So cute, right?! To the right side of the year banner I added one of the Metal Royal Key Charms to dress it up even more. So pretty!

I love the way the ornament looks hanging on our tree! The gold/white color scheme matches perfectly!

Thank you again to Maya Road for asking me to guest blog for them this week! I had a great time! Be sure to check out their unique and amazing products, there’s something for everyone not matter what your style is!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
