Echo Park Paper: Foil Bunny Box

Are you looking for something simple and sweet for your Easter Dinner table? Today I’m sharing a fun Easter project on the Echo Park Paper Blog using the Dots & Stripes Gold Stripes collection.

I love the soft colors of these papers and knew they would be perfect for creating favor boxes for Easter. The bunny shape of this cut file has the “wow-factor,” but is easy to put together. I love projects like that!

I cut the bunny box from the Tan, Pink, and Mint Striped papers using my electronic cutting machine. The inside of the ears were cut from the solid side of the Lt. Pink Gold Foil Stripe paper and then embossed with the Sunny Dots Embossing Folder.

Next, I pulled out various metal die sets for the fun part … decorating the ears! I used the solid sides of the paper to cut all of the shapes.
First, I added a die cut bow using the Mini 3D Bow metal die set.

To the center of the bow, I created a sweet little flower using the Flower #3 Die Set. Then, I added a monogrammed tag using the Lindsay Uppercase Alphabet and Rounded Tag Die Sets.

Guest Designer: My Creative Scrapbook Part 1 of 2

ILoveMCS

Hello Friends! This month I am a Guest Designer at My Creative Scrapbook. I had the opportunity to work with the darling Creative Kit featuring the Bloom collection by Photo Play Paper and adorable elements from the Doodlebug Spring Things collection.

I will share two of my projects with you today, and the other two with you tomorrow … so be sure to check back!

HELLO SPRING

This kit has me itching for sunny, Spring days … it’s so happy and bright!

I love this picture of my Camryn at a family Easter Egg Hunt a few years ago. Her expression on the face is priceless. She is so excited! And I love that her wrists and fingers are covered in Rainbow Loom bracelets and rings. She had spent hours before this family party creating bracelets and rings for all of her cousins. So sweet!

You will receive a full package of the Doodlebug Odds & Ends Die Cut Cardstock Pieces in the Creative Kit. The fun thing about this set of die cuts is that it also includes several acetate pieces. I added the flower cluster to the top right corner of my photo.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO3-CloseUp2

I used the acetate viewmaster die cut behind the large Spring Garden Garden Flower at the bottom of my photo. Instead of using the die cut flowers separately, I stacked them on top of each other to create two large layered flowers. The circles are actually the flower centers … but I think it works as a cute little posy. 🙂 I added buttons tied with twine to the centers.

I used two more of the Doodlebug Odds & Ends die cuts for my title. I also added the frog die cut and a flower die cut. The plaid strip anchoring everything is from the Photo Play Paper Bloom Element Stickers.

Several years ago, we purchased a gazebo for our yard. Our young daughters lovingly nicknamed it the “birdcage” and would come home and sit in it together each day after school. My two little chickadees looked so cute sitting there and I couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures of these two sisters.

BEAUTIFUL BIRDCAGE

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO4

I used the adorable Photo Play Bloom papers to layer up a wide center strip for my page. I then created a little scene on the page using the Doodlebug Odds & Ends die cut pieces.

Then sun/cloud and bird on a branch sit at the top of the page. I added in a smaller cloud sticker for dimension.

MCS-Jana Eubank-Creative Kit-LO4-CloseUp2

I used the “beautiful” die cut as part of my title. The “birdcage” letters are the customizable Root Beer Float Thickers that are included in the Creative Kit. I used white glitter from my stash to add a bit of shimmer to them. The two little bird die cuts accent either side.

Simple Stories: Happy Easter & My Daughter’s Baptism Day

Happy Tuesday! Today I am up on the Simple Stories Blog with my first post as a new Creative Team member! I’m so excited to be working with Simple Stories! They are one of my very favorite paper companies and I adore working with their collections.

I have two scrapbook pages for you. The first one is documenting my children enjoying their Easter baskets on Easter morning.
HAPPY EASTER

I cut a couple of angled strips of the Hip Hop Hooray paper (using both of the patterns) to go across the top and bottom of my page.
In the top right corner I created a fun embellishment cluster by tucking several stickers into one of the strips. The two phrase stickers and floral sticker help to visually anchor the cluster.

For my title, I fussy-cut the “Happy Easter” from the 4×6 journaling Cards Elements Paper. I added the adorable bunny face sticker (my favorite!) to the left and then sprinkled in several of the heart stickers. I matted each of the heart stickers with white cardstock, so that they had the same feel to the other stickers I was using on the page.

I loved the little saying on the Easter Egg 4×6 Journaling Card and wanted to add it to the bottom of my page. I used my trimmer to cut it out and then adhered it below the photos. I placed Easter eggs and the cute little chick on either end as accents.

I love these adorable patterns from this set! They help add a spring-timey feel to these Easter morning photos even though my kids are still in their pajamas. LOL!

When my daughter turned eight years old, she was baptized by my husband. I couldn’t wait to use the adorable Faith collection to record her special day and into our memory books!
Jana Eubank Faith Follow Your Heart Layout 1 600
I loved the navy Shine Paper with all of it’s inspirational messages and decided to use that paper as the base to my layout. I clustered together several fun phrase stickers and hearts in the corners of my two photos to help tie them in with the title and draw your eye around the page.
Jana Eubank Faith Follow Your Heart Layout 2 600
I love these photos of my daughter and my husband, they were just radiating with goodness that day and the hearts and flowers perfectly convey my full heart and emotions as I look at these two special people in my life!
Jana Eubank Faith Follow Your Heart Layout 3 600
I die cut my title using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I cut each phrase/letter out of two colors of cardstock to create a shadow effect. The letters of the word “heart” are embossed with an embossing folder to add more texture. I think they help repeat the cute fleck pattern of the pink and yellow photo mats at the top of the page, too!
Jana Eubank Faith Follow Your Heart Layout 4 600
To the left of the title I fussy-cut some of the feathers from a journaling card to use as a page accent. I added white crochet twine to the stem of each feather for more texture.
The feathers and title are all anchored on a strip of striped Grace paper. On the right side of the strip I added two of the epoxy metal clips. Aren’t they cute?! I love adding in different textures, like metal, to my pages. The epoxy at the top of the metal clips and on the decorative brads add a bit of shine, too!

I hoped you enjoyed seeing my pages today and that they inspired you to scrapbook some of your favorite family memories!
Thanks for coming by! See you again soon!

Layout: Hippity Hop!

Last weekend I had the chance to get together with a few of my online scrappy friends. We had such a great time chatting and talking about what inspires us creatively. I love being able to get together with like-minded friends!

I brought along my Felicity Jane Sophie kit and scrapped these photos of my kids all dressed up for church on Easter morning.

HIPPITY HOP!

It’s a tradition in our home to get new church clothes for Easter Sunday … and, of course, being the scrappy-mom I am, I always make the kids pose for pictures in their new duds. Hehe!

jana-eubank-felicity-jane-sophie-hippity-hop-1-600

I used an old chipboard alpha from my stash for the title (Making Memories Pitter Patter). I was running low on e’s and a’s and couldn’t spell out “Easter,” so I went with Hippity Hop instead (thanks to the help of some old title idea books I have held onto 🙂 ).

I cut the banner pieces from the Felicity Jane Sophie Sticker sheet and decided to add in a few more of the elements to make the banner long enough to go across the top of my page. I “strung” them all together by stitching them with my sewing machine.

jana-eubank-felicity-jane-sophie-hippity-hop-3

I fussy-cut several of the florals from the floral paper and clustered them together in a few spots around the page.

I cut the top of the “Special Day” journal block to use as a tab at the top of my photos. The other half holds my journaling below the photos.

I wrote the quick facts for this page with a black journaling pen and then stamped the word “happy” using the Stampin’ Up “Endless Birthday Wishes” stamp set.
