Carta Bella Paper: Never Grow Up Layout

Hi, Everyone! The Carta Bella Toy Box collection not only takes me back to the days when I was younger, but also when my kids were younger. I giggled when I saw the Magic Toy Room paper because it reminded me exactly how my son’s room looked when he was a little boy.

Today I used this collection to document my son’s 12th birthday. The Toy Banner paper was so much fun to fussy-cut and use as a decorative element across my page.

I popped the banner pieces up on foam squares to give the page some depth and then added several of the chipboard pieces and gem brads from the Decorative Brads set for even more texture.

I even added a banner across my journaling block.

At the top of the page, I added a chipboard phrase and then embellished it with the Decorative Brads. The large chipboard circle accent is adhered to a red button. I love the way this looks! It’s such a fun way to frame out those chipboard circle pieces!

I did the same thing with another red button at the bottom of the page.
The “Never Grow Up” chipboard phrase acts as the title on this page. To the left of it I added one of the darling Mini Paper Fans.

I love the way this one came together. The Toy Box collection was perfect for documenting these birthday photos! I think I will use it again to scrapbook my son blowing out the candles on the cake!

Simple Stories: Scrapping with Domestic Bliss

My daughter just moved back home from her first year at college and I wanted to document her first “Home Away from Home” … her dorm room. The Domestic Bliss collection by Simple Stories was the perfect answer!
HOME AWAY FROM HOME
I had taken several photos of her room the day we moved her in last Fall, along with a shot of the outside of her dorm building. I included them all together on this page.

I cut the “HOME” letters out from one of the cards from the 4×6 Horizontal Elements Paper to use as my title. Behind the letter “O” I included one of the pie chart circle die cuts from the Bits & Pieces pack.

The smaller “HOME” letters are from the 4×6 Sticker pack. I adhered the letters to white cardstock and trimmed them out using scissors to give them a white outline. I used the Snap Color Vibe Bolds Letter Stickers for the other words in the title.
I book-ended my title with the Decorative Brads to give it even more personality! I love them here!

For some reason, that cute couch icon included in this collection just said “dorm” to me! I cut this one out of the same sheet of 4×6 Horizontal Elements Paper that I used for the “HOME” letters. Doesn’t that couch look inviting?! … Like it’s just waiting for 6 college girls to pile on it and start gossiping about their dating and class experiences!

At the bottom of the page, I added a couple more decorative icon brads, as well as the date, stamped on one of the label stickers from the 4×6 Stickers pack.

I love when I find my kids asleep on the couch or in various other places around our house. To me, it means they feel safe, they feel cozy … they feel at home. And that is what this next page is about.
HOME
I used a sheet of the Aspen/White Basics Notebook paper as the base to my layout, matting it with a sheet of the Bless This Mess paper.

Next, I used various papers from the 6×8 paper pad to build up some delicious patterned paper layers behind my two photos. The smaller scaled patterns are perfect for layering together in a situation like this!

I cut the letters “HOME” from one of the 4×6 cards of the Snap Pack and then added a house and heart die cuts from the Bits & Pieces die cuts. Everything is stitched and anchored to a strip of striped paper from the same 6×8 paper pad.
Jana Eubank Simple Stories Domestic Bliss Home Layout 2 600
I hand cut the large hearts from the 6×8 paper pad and drew an outline around each one of them with a black journaling pen to match the outlining preprinted on the title letters. I then used my sewing machine to stitch them to the left side of the page, sprinkling them in a waterfall fashion and bending up each side of the heart for dimension.

I added my journaling with a black journaling pen, using the lines of the background notebook paper as a guide. A few enamel dots sprinkled here-and-there adds even more color and dimension.

 Do you have sweet pictures like this of your children or loved ones asleep? Don’t they look angelic in those photos? Why not use those photos to document what makes them feel safe and secure or what brings them comfort in your home?
Have a great week!

Carta Bella Paper: Toy Box Backpack Activity Set

Keep your little one entertained with this fun activity set! I created a paper backpack with the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection filled with notepads and crayons that I think would make the perfect gift for a toddler. There is even enough room in the backpack to add a snack!

I cut the base of the backpack from the Magic Toy Room paper with it’s darling blue plaid pattern. On the flap I added a decorative panel with the toy guns, and then created a tag to hang on the handle.

The tag was created with the Rounded Tag Die Set. I added the chipboard plane, and a word sticker from the Elements Sticker Sheet. Sparkly, gem decorative brads hold the handle in place.

The front of the backpack has a yellow polka dot pocket that is decorated with all kinds of fun toys from the Chipboard and Element Sticker sheets.

Queen & Co: Using the Foam Fronts Dies in Your Scrapbooking

Lately, I have been focusing on getting some older photos scrapbooked, in rotation with my newer photos. I try to switch back and forth … one new, one old, one new, one old … so that I can get caught up on our older memories, while still recording the details of our latest happenings.
Today I have two pages for you, both of them feature the NEW Foam Front dies.
This first page features newer photos of my husband and I when we went to the Magic Kingdom recently to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
MAGIC

I wanted to challenge myself to use the NEW Foam Front Mickey die in a creative way on this page and decided to use it as a journaling block.
Jana Eubank Queen & Co Magic Layout 3 600
I cut the shape using red solid cardstock and then backed it with a yellow solid paper. I outlined the mouse ears with a journaling pen and then sprinkled several toppings on the inside.
I combined together red and blue Sequin Sprinkles, white Lollies, red Candy Sprinkles, Neutral (black) Pearlies, blue donuts, as well as blue and black Fimo Fun Toppings for a festive look!

I added journaling strips to the top of the foam front shape and then placed my title work below.
I also created a fun cluster of embellishments at the top of the journaling block.

I added some festive Magic Ribbon around our photos and then finished it off with the “Love” flair from the Magic Flair set. Perfect for our anniversary, don’t you think?!

For this second page, I decided to work with some photos from 2010 that I have been ignoring for far too long. They are of my daughter and her friends at a Cast Party after they performed in their Elementary’s school play of Aladdin.
CAST PARTY
For this card, I used the Foam Front Stars Die to build a background for my page. I love the way it came together!
Jana Eubank Queen & Co Cast Party Layout 1 600
First, I cut blue and green cardstock with the Foam Front Stars die, and then used my trimmer to trim the die cuts into 4 1/4″ squares. Next, I embossed them with various embossing folders from my stash and then adhered them to a block of white cardstock, adding Yellow Skinny Glitter Tape along the seams for a touch of sparkle.

I added a strip of photos, tied with blue Sparkle String, and then got to work on the title and journaling block.

I used a tag card that I die cut on my Silhouette machine, layered on top of a piece of patterned paper. Green rivets decorate the tab of the card, and Bitty Beads add texture to the green chipboard letters I used as part of the title. At the top, I layered together more glitter tapes (Green Dot Glitter Tape and Yellow Check Glitter Tape).

For more color and texture, I sprinkled some yellow Button Bouquet II buttons around the page, along with the yellow stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings. They feel like confetti sprinkled on the page and definitely add a party feel! Yay! “Celebrate Good Times, Come On! … It’s a Celebration!”
