Can you feel it? Can you feel the change in the night air? Fall is upon us … and that makes me want to gather friends and family for a cozy night around the fire pit.
Today I have a fun little fall gift up on the Echo Park Paper blog that you might want to make for your neighbors, family, or friends … Smore Treat Boxes!
jana-eubank-fall-is-in-the-air-smores-boxes-photo-1-600
I created these cute little boxes using the Carta Bella Paper Kraft Designer Cardstock and various papers from the Fall Is in the Air collection. I cut the boxes out using my Silhouette Cameo machine and a design I found in the Silhouette Design Store.

Next, I selected various papers from the 6×6 paper pad to adorn each side of the box. That was the hardest part! I just love all of the cute patterns in this collection and I wanted to use them all! LOL!

For the front of each box, I used the Ephemera, Ephemera Frames & Tags Pack, Element Stickers, and Chipboard to decorate each one. The critters in this collection have my heart, so I made each one the star of their own smore container.

Carta Bella Paper: Autumn Cuckoo Clock

Jana Eubank Autumn Cuckoo Clock Photo 4 600
One of my favorite seasons to decorate for is Autumn. I love the rich, warm colors and all of the cozy textures! It’s only natural that the Carta Bella Autumn collection has become a fast-favorite of mine! Today I am sharing a Cuckoo Clock I created with this adorable collection. I plan on displaying it in our mudroom on a shelf above our coat hooks. It’s going to look so cute!

The cut the structure of the cuckoo clock house from the Fall Stitching and Harvest Season papers. I love how these two patterns compliment each other and embody all the warmth and coziness of the season with the cross-stitched letters and leaves.

The roof is a layering of the Fall Forest check pattern and the sweet floral pattern of the Autumn Stroll papers. I bent up the shingles slightly for even more texture.

The front of the clock is decorated with the adorable scenes from the Element Stickers. The clock face is an Echo Park Print & Cut image found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #32380). There are also several more to choose from if you are looking for something in a different color or style, and really helped this project come to life!

Every time I look at this project, I will remember not to take a single minute of Fall for granted. It’s my favorite time of year and I want to enjoy every second!

Finding Inspiration: Using a Magazine Ad as Inspiration for a Page Design

JanaEubank_AutumnHouse2

I read somewhere once that the problem with being a creative person is that we can see the “potential” in everything. Most of the time it serves us very well, so you might be asking how that can be a problem?

Well, the problem arises when you are trying to clean out your house. It’s so hard to get rid of things! Haha! For example, I came across a stack of old magazines. I always enjoy looking at the colors and images of home decor magazines, but since these are from 2010, I figured it was probably time to let them go.

I then made the mistake of picking up the top one and flipping through the pages. I came across an ad for wheat thins that grabbed my attention right away. I knew it would make the perfect scrapbook page!

I printed out a series of square photos, took out my Noel Mignon Golden Delicious Classic Kit and set to work. Here is what I made.

AUTUMN AT OUR HOUSE

JanaEubank_AutumnHouse

I arranged the square photos down the left side of the page like the crackers in the ad. I then needed to figure out what I could sprinkle in between the photos to mimic the cheese curls.

Remember the floral paper from my kit sorting video? I did decide to cut out the leaves and use them tucked around the photos. It took awhile, but I really like how they look!

The strip along the bottom of the page was inspired by the row of photos in the ad. I placed my title and journaling in similar spots as the text of the ad.

In retrospect, I wish I would have taken time to create sentence strips instead of writing directly on the background paper. I was going for a subtle look, but when I erased the penciled journaling underneath, the ink on the paper lifted a bit and left a lighter area … not a look I was going for, unfortunately. Oh, well!

It’s hard to tell, but I used the leaf stencil from the kit to add a subtle pattern of leaves behind the photos, title, and journaling. You might be able to catch a glimpse of them here-and-there in these shots.

The “Autumn” word is a cut file from the Silhouette store. I combined it with the gold letter stickers from the kit and then used tiny letter tile stickers (Cosmo Cricket) for the word “at.”

Hmmm. Maybe I can bear to part with that 2010 magazine now that I have made use of it one more time. … I better check to see if there are any other ads that could inspire me in there before I do. *giggle*

See you again soon!

Noel Mignon: Queen of the Kitchen

JanaEubank_Queen3

Happy Sunday! Today I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog with another scrapbook page using the Golden Delicious Classic Kit.

QUEEN OF THE KITCHEN

For this page, I used the colors in the photo to help me select the papers for the page.

In the top left corner of the photo, I created a little vignette of flowers layered over a cut apart label. I placed two of the flowers on different heights of foam squares to give it some variety; then added in a sprinkling of colorful brads.

JanaEubank_Queen2

I wanted the viewer’s eye to be led across the photo to the title next, so I used more flowers tucked behind the right edge of the photo to accent the word, “Queen.”

My daughter actually came up with this title. I was trying to figure out what to say about her winning a recipe contest at a teen church night, and she squealed, “How about ‘Queen of the Kitchen?'” It was perfect! And I love that she was still so excited about winning that night!

The gold letter stickers from the kit spell out the word “queen.” The rest of the title was created using the two colors of letter stickers from the Golden Delicious Daily Diary kit.

Finally, I layered together all kinds of fun bits around the title. The mason jar was cut from the Imaginisce “Happy Harvest” paper. Then the pumpkin, apple, and plaid button come from the Simple Stories chipboard sheet. Finally a few brads, and phrase stickers and a die cut on top. It’s so cute and eclectic!

Well, with Thanksgiving approaching I hope you are gearing up to be the “Queen of your Kitchen” this holiday! Are you hosting this year? My daughter will be getting her wisdom teeth out on Wednesday, so my assignments are minimal this year.

Stay warm and cozy!
