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.

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.

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!”

Layout: Love You

I recently treated myself to a shopping spree at a local scrapbook store here in Utah, and I couldn’t resist picking up the darling Faith collection by Simple Stories. I love all the colors and designs … and while I may or may not have some Faith-based photos I can dig out to scrap with this collection, I love that you can also use it for everyday memories.

I used it to scrap these snapshots of my kids.

I cut out some hearts from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper to decorate the top right corner of my page, adding a few stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet (phrase stickers, butterly, and flower).

jana-eubank-simple-stories-faith-love-you-layout-2-600

For my title, I cut out the words “Love” and “You” from the 4×4 Elements and 4×6 Horizontal Elements papers. I also cut out the flowers to use as a page decoration. I added all of these to my page with thin foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives (my favorite things on the planet!).

I added a button to the center of the large flower, and enamel dots to the centers of the smaller flowers for a bit more dimension.

jana-eubank-simple-stories-faith-love-you-layout-3-600

How cute are those little lightbulbs. I added them next to my title to add a visual triangle of yellow around the page. The little red flower is there to carry the red around the page three times, as well.

I cut the oval from one of the 3×4 Journaling Cards to add my journaling. I chose to handwrite it this time around, which is different for me … Lately, I’ve been typing my journaling so that I can tell more, but this time I just kept it short and sweet. 🙂

Echo Park Paper: Tooth Fairy Easel Trinket Box

Waiting for the tooth fairy to come is almost like waiting for Christmas morning …the magic or anticipating a fairy visiting your room feels the air and makes it almost impossible to fall asleep!
Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with a fun project using the NEW Tooth Fairy Mini Collection.
jana-eubank-toothfairy-mini-toothfairy-easel-box-1-600
Those teeny, tiny teeth are so easily lost underneath a pillow … why not create a keepsake box to place on your child’s nightstand instead?
jana-eubank-toothfairy-mini-toothfairy-easel-box-4-600
The top of this box as an easel that flips up, displaying a tooth chart. The sparkly brads keeps the easel in place, but the panel can also fold flat for storage.
jana-eubank-toothfairy-mini-toothfairy-easel-box-2-600
Below the chart is a drawer, … the perfect spot to place the loose tooth and maybe even a note for the tooth fairy, thanking her for her hard work. The sparkly brad is not only a fun decorative touch, but serves as the drawer pull.

After the tooth fairy comes for her visit, she can leave payment inside the drawer.

Place the Tooth Fairy box inside a coordinating storage box to keep it protected until the next time you are ready to use it!
