July 2018 PageMaps Sketches!

Happy July and Happy Sunday! It’s a new month … so you know what that mean! NEW sketches are up on the PageMaps site. YAY!!!

Becky Fleck’s sketches always get my creative juices flowing and are the perfect way to dig into my stash. Here are three pages I created with this month’s sketches so far.

YOU GO GIRL

I purchased several pieces from the Pebbles Girl Squad collection and hadn’t yet touched it. The funky vibe of these papers were perfect for these photos of my daughter and her brightly colored Crazy Hair Day hairstyle.

I seem to almost always use blue or aqua on my pages … especially for the background. I love this Happy Day paper with its fun, scripty words.

I mirrored the sketch for this page because of the direction my daughter was facing in the photos. This way, she is looking towards the title and journaling, directing your eye across the page.

I seem to go through phases of typed journaling and handwritten journaling. Right now, I am doing a lot of handwritten journaling with sketchy journaling lines. I think this looks best with this paper line with it’s casual, fun feel. But if I’m using a more sophisticated paper line, I would probably go with typed journaling since my handwriting has more of a playful feeling about it.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the phrase Thickers from this collection! Isn’t the script SCRUMPTIOUS?!!! I fussy cut the girls from the Hello Friends paper, as well as the “Smile” speech bubble to accent the title.

The stickers for this collection are really fun, too! I couldn’t resist adding the guitar and the flower cluster. The white around the flowers was a bit too thick for my liking, so I quickly trimmed it down with my scissors and then added more flowers and leaves to fill it out.

ROUND 2: BRAVE

This next page uses the same sketch as above, but in the original format (without mirroring). I pulled lots of items from my stash for this one … some of them are REALLY old, but I still love them and they worked perfectly here!

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Brave 1 600

See those chipboard pieces? Those are from the Echo Park Happy Days collection. Not sure of the year, but I love the layered chipboard! I think BoBunny does layered chipboard pieces like that still, but it would be fun to see a few more companies revisit layered chipboard again.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Brave 2 600

The roses here are also from the Echo Park Paper Happy Days collection. I also added in a few black chipboard word stickers by Me and My Big Ideas. I splattered a bit of Heidi Swapp Black Velvet Color Shine to punch up the black a bit more.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Brave 3 600

I called this page “Round 2: Brave” because this was the SECOND time my daughter has had her ears pierced. She wasn’t very good at taking care of them the first time around, letting them grow back in. She begged and begged to have them pierced again, which was fine with me, as long as she used her own money to pay for it this time, and also promised to take care of them.

Again, I used an aqua blue background for this page. The papers on this page are from the darling PhotoPlay Paper For the Love of Summer collection. The rainbow paper is called Flip Out, and the dot paper is called So Chill.

SWEET GIRL

While I had the sketches and Girl Squad collection out on my desk, I decided to create another page. This time with a selfie shot my daughter took on my phone on our way to church one day.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 1 600

I’m a bit shocked at myself … I didn’t use an aqua blue background on this page!!! Infact, I did a fun and funky combination of the patterns I had left. I like it, but can’t decide if it’s a bit TOO funky for my taste. Haha!

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 6 600

In place of the three square photos to the left of the main photo in the sketch, I used three square accents cut from the Hello Friends paper. The circle above with the Title is cut from white vellum paper.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 2 600

I found these adorable metal enamel-filled hearts in my stash that I purchased from Freckled Fawn several years ago. They were the perfect dimensional detail for this page.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 3 600

I clustered the Cardstock stickers together in several places, adding in a few dimensional stickers from my stash that I got from HSN.com once upon a time. The yellow glittery dots in the center of the flowers are stickers I picked up at the Dollar Tree several years ago … I never thought to use them as flower centers, but I will more often, now that it crossed my mind creating this page!

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 4 600

Again, I used my handwriting on this page and added a Teresa Collins Black label sticker at the bottom with the date.

Echo Park Paper: Have Faith

I had so much fun creating this next scrapbook page using the darling Echo Park Paper Have Faith collection. Check it out below!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Have Faith Grace Layout 1 600
I pulled out the Stitched Hearts Die Set to create some fun embellishments for this page after being inspired by the cute quote on this tag sticker from the Element Sticker Sheet … “You Have Filled My Heart.”
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Have Faith Grace Layout 2 600
The multiple strips of patterns of the Little Chapel paper had a quilt-feel about it, making it the perfect pairing with my stitched heart accents. I placed a wide band of the Little Chapel Paper across the center of the page and then built everything else on top of it, focusing the photos on the right side of the page, and placing the title and journaling on the left side.
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Have Faith Grace Layout 3 600
I created the stitched hearts by die cutting them from the Coral/Pink Solid paper and then using white embroidery floss to straight stitch along the edges. I LOVE the Stitched Heart Die Set! I can’t wait to use them again! They look so cute with the stitching placed in the holes … I can’t wait to try a whip stitch or a blanket stitch on them!

At the bottom of the page, I cut out the Letterboard 3×4 card from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper to use as a page accent. Isn’t it cute?! I layered the bike and a few label stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet across the bottom.

Simple Stories: I Am Evolving

It’s taken me a long time to become comfortable scrapbooking pictures and stories about myself, but the new Simple Stories I Am collection makes it easy … and FUN!

Jana Eubank Simple Stories I Am Evolvoing 1 600
I used several papers from the 6×8 pad to mat my photos and also to create lots of fun layers behind them!
Jana Eubank Simple Stories I Am Evolvoing 2 600
I fussy-cut these butterflies out of one of the 6×8 sheets. I love how they reinforce the idea behind my page title with a nod to “evolving.”
Jana Eubank Simple Stories I Am Evolvoing 3 600
I used the darling chipboard tassel banner in the lower left corner of my photo and then layered my title to the left and underneath. Several chipboard hearts accent the spaces in between the butterflies (the rose gold foil is so beautiful on these!).
Jana Eubank Simple Stories I Am Evolvoing 4 600
The foil-bordered journaling block was hand-cut from the 4×6 Horizontal Elements paper. I chose to have it bleed off the bottom edge of the page.

When was the last time YOU created a page about yourself?

Echo Park Paper: A Very, Merry Unbirthday to You!

If you are thinking of someone and want to do something special for them “Just Because,” why not wish them a “Very, Merry Unbirthday” with the new Alice in Wonderland collection by Echo Park Paper and this tea kettle gift box?!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Alice In Wonderland Tea Kettle 1 600
This tea kettle cut file by SVGCuts.com is such a great size! It measures 9 inches high with a circumference of 4 inches, making it perfect to tuck in a stack of homemade cookies, tea, or perhaps a bottle of lotion or body wash? Whatever you tuck inside, your friend will be excited that you thought of them.
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Alice In Wonderland Tea Kettle 3 600
The top of the handle is adorned with die cut flowers created with the Flower Die Set #3. I layered together all three flower shapes, as well as the large circle. I also added in a few blue swirls from the die set for a magical feel. The die cut leaves were created using the Fall Branch Die Set. All papers for the flower cluster are from the 6×6 paper pad.

Alice, herself, beckons you to go on an adventure. I don’t know about you, but she makes me want to spend the afternoon reading a book in a beautiful garden. (Isn’t the artwork in this collection so adorable?!)
