Layout: Stunning

Sometimes I hold off on scrapbooking certain pictures because I just haven’t found products that “feel” like the day or the memory that I am trying to scrap. Have you ever done that?

These are pictures of my daughter dressed up for the Valentine’s Day High School dance last year. The lace dress with the satin ribbon was just so HER! When I received the lace paper in the December Felicity Jane “Hello Christmas” kit I just knew where I would put that paper to use first … on this layout, of course! (The papers are still available in the Felicity Jane shop HERE, if you are interested!)

STUNNING

I decided to keep it simple, with a black and white color scheme, allowing the photos to really pop off the page.

My next challenge was finding a way to embellish this page … enter the Remarkable You stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

remarkableyou

I stamped the two larger florals and leaf branch on white cardstock several times, and then fussy-cut them out with detail scissors.

At first, I colored them, but decided they looked better on this page left plain. I LOVE them!!!

For the title, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word “stunning” … a cut file by Karla Dudley (Silhouette Design #58232).

Echo Park Paper: Shine Layout

It’s been awhile since I have used my sewing machine on a layout, but I couldn’t help but add lots of zig zag stitching in between the patterns of the large heart of the Follow Your Heart paper from Echo Park Paper’s Just Be You Collection. I loved it so much I used it as the main design element on this page about my daughter.
jana-eubank-just-be-you-layout-photo-1-600
Stitching is a great way to add lots of dimension to your page without a lot of work … and the printed patterns on this heart take all the work out piecing together a heart yourself!
jana-eubank-just-be-you-layout-photo-2-600
I used all three sheets of the Just Be You Solids Paper Pack on this page, too. It’s important to intersperse solid papers around your page when you are using a lot of different patterns on a project like I have done here. It will give your eye a place to rest as it takes in each element on your layout.
jana-eubank-just-be-you-layout-photo-3-600
I nestled two tags and my title in the corner on top of the pre-printed florals of the Be Bold striped background paper. Lifting the title and butterfly stickers up on to foam squares gives the page even more interest.
jana-eubank-just-be-you-layout-photo-4-600
I could have used the lines on the background paper as a guide to write my journaling, but this time, I opted to use typed journaling strips for a cleaner look. Journaling strips are another great way to keep your design cohesive when using lots of pattern on a page.

The result is a cheerful page documenting the sparkling personality of my daughter!

Bella Blvd. February Guest Designer

This month I am the Guest Designer on the Bella Blvd. Blog. I have always loved Bella Blvd’s products and had a great time playing with three of their current collections.

This first page.features two of my daughters and the You Are Loved Illustrated Faith collection.

I used white cardstock as the base of my layout, spritzing it with a bit of teal spray mist, stitching the edges and matting it with a couple of the patterned papers before adding my photos and the other elements.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-2-600
I used the Heavens Paper to set off my main photo and then added  a couple of pennants, clear cuts, and a die cut flower to the bottom.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-3-600
On the left side of my page, I used the letter stickers to spell out my title, stitching the letters down with my sewing machine for a little more texture.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-4-600
At the bottom of my page, I added a clear cut flower and a clear cut XOXO border, that I also added stitching to.

I have had this next photo waiting for the perfect papers to scrap it with for a few years now … I was delighted to receive the Barnyard Collection and knew it would be perfect for this fun memory about my daughter dressing up as a farmer for Career Day at her school
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-1-600
At the top of the page, I layered a couple of the cloud die cuts along with some pennants and hearts to give the sun in the corner a little more dimension. I added red gems to the hearts for a bit of sparkle.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-2-600
For the title, I used the “Smile” acrylic word along the bottom of my photo. I accented the left side with a broccoli die cut and radish puffy sticker.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-3-600
In the bottom right corner of the page, I used die cuts to cover up the pre-printed pattern and create my own little dimensional farm scene. How cute is that chicken and bushel of apples?! I added my journaling on journaling strips created with my computer and sprinkled in a few punched hearts adorned with red gems.

I love how happy and bright this page turned out!

The final page I have for you today features the adorable Secrets of the Sea Collection.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-1-600
A few years ago we visited the Outerbanks of North Carolina. And even though the beach was literally across the street, my kids and their cousins seemed to prefer the ease of the swimming pool. I think it was nice to have snacks and shade just a few footsteps away, and they also enjoyed now having sand everywhere. LOL!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-2-600
To draw focus to my main photo, I placed the title along the bottom edge along with a little ocean scene created with the die cuts, stickers, and puffy stickers.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-3-600
I ADORE the embossed nature of the puffy stickers and couldn’t resist sprinkling those darling, little blue fish everywhere!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-4-600
I placed the larger photos in a vertical column on the page, using one of the 4×6 cut apart cards to ground my journaling strips.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-5-600
The clips, die cuts, and fish puffy sticker were perfect for adorning the “empty” corners of my photo.

Queen & Co: Hello Cutie Layout

My first Queen & Co. project is up on the Queen & Co. Blog! With three daughters in my home, I knew the Queen & Co. Heart Throb kit would be the perfect fit for creating something about my girls.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-1-600
I selected these photos of my daughter on her birthday last year and used her shirt as inspiration for my title. I used the acrylic “hello” script word from the kit along with letters I cut (using the ZP Periwinkle font by Lettering Delights) from glitter paper using my electronic die cut machine.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-2-600
I cut the 6×6 papers into strips and then adhered them to the page side by side, disguising the seams behind my photos. The horizontal bands help give the photos a place to “rest.”
I typed my journaling on a journal card that I pulled from my stash. Here is a closer look at what it says.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-3-600
My favorite part of this page is at the bottom where I had fun playing with the shaker elements of the kit. I die cut the bottom heart from pink cardstock (border) and the blue/white striped paper (insert) from the 6×6 Heart Throb paper pad.
Next, I created a dimensional shaker heart, using the gray floral paper for the background, and pink glitter paper for the border. Inside I added the large pink sequins, small white sequins, the dark pink heart toppings, the blue floral toppings, and a sprinkle of the new diamond topping. You always need to add a little sparkle and shine to a girl’s page, right?!
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-4-600
I added the “Love You Forever” sentiment sticker across the top of the heart with foam squares. The page is finished off with a sprinkling of heart sequins and enamel dots around the hearts and title. So cute!
