Happy Friday to all of you! My friends at ScrapbookingStore.com contacted me recently and asked me to create a layout using their September 2018 scrapbook kit. This kit features the Beautiful Life collection by Echo Park Paper and was one I haven’t played with before. I loved the bright colors and actually ended up creating three layouts with this kit.

Now for my layouts … This first one is my favorite!

…………………………………………………………………….

TODAY LET’S TRY RED

I used white cardstock from my stash for the base of each of these layouts. For this one, I started with a band of the yellow polka dot paper across the top and then layered two rows of tickets (fussy-cut from a patterned paper) along the seam.

Lately, I’m really loving creating stacked layer photo mats on my pages. All of the different patterns and colors peeking out here-and-there makes me so happy.

Add in some flowers and I’m a happy-scrappy girl!

For the title, I used the gold Thickers from the Add-On. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the letters for the word “RED” and then popped them up with foam squares.

I then added the journaling in a column below the photos and accented the bottom of the page with a thin strip of striped patterned paper and some of the stickers.

Next, I used this kit to scrapbook a few of my daughter’s graduation memories from a couple years ago.

CLASS OF 2016

I began this page by stacking together several of the papers in rows to create a colorful backdrop for my two photos.

I then accented the photos with fussy-cut doilies, 3×4 journaling Cards, and several stickers. Again, flowers and butterflies peek out in a few places adding lots of character.

I used the gold thickers again for the title on this page. I used my Cameo to cut out the “of” from navy blue cardstock from my stash.

A couple of fussy-cut rulers anchor the photos at the bottom and top of the page are a subtle nod to the school theme.

CONGRATS!

I couldn’t resist creating a page with all of the banner stickers from the sticker sheet. They were perfect for this page with the photographs I took of the decorations we put up in our kitchen for my daughter on the day of her high school graduation.

I used the smaller heart and flower stickers popped up on foam squares to add dimension to the banner.

The flowers were all fussy-cut from another patterned paper. I used Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Drops to add dimensional flower centers to a few of them.

Echo Park Paper: Back to School

I love the fall and everything that goes with it … including Back to School! The minute the notebooks and crayons hit the store shelves I get giddy! In addition to collecting office supplies this time of year, I also love to stock up on school-themed scrapbook supplies like the new Echo Park Paper Back to School collection! Swoon!

I have school albums for each of my kids with a tabbed section for each grade. At the beginning of the section I always place a page featuring the pictures we take on the first day of school.

I grouped the close-up shots for this page on a block of black and white composition book patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad. A strip featuring lots of school words from the Border Strips paper runs down the left side of the page.

I used a notebook patterned card from my stash for the journaling and then grouped all of the school supplies stickers at the bottom. Of course I had to add a paper clip!

I cut the title out on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the Ebony Black Felt Cardstock. I love how dark the black of this cardstock is. It makes such crisp, beautiful images on a page. The title is backed with a large circle cut using a wood pattern from the 6×6 paper pad.

I used the Prize Ribbon Die Set, to add the grade level to the bottom right corner of the larger photo. I layered together two of each of the pinked circles and ribbon tails for more dimension and interest. I used the star from the die set to add bright, yellow stars around the page.

American Crafts: Elementary School Mini Album

Ever since the Shimelle Box of Crayons collection came out I have been wanting to create a school-themed mini album with it. My daughter is graduating from Elementary School this year, and so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to create an album using her photo from the first day of school each year. It’s so much fun to see my daughter’s growth from year-to-year all in one place!

Jana Eubank American Crafts Shimelle Box of Craryons School Mini Album 1 600

I created the page using my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic die cutting machine and the cardstock from the Shimelle 12×12 Project Pad. Each year has its own tab and is labeled with a mini tile letter sticker from the Alphabet Stickers Folder.

Each page is decorated with papers from the Box of Crayons 6×6 paper pad. I then fussy-cut several journaling shapes from the 6×8 Writing Pad to use as layers behind the photo for each year. The long crayons at the bottom of each page are also from the 6×8 Writing Pad.

I sized the photos so that four of them would fit on a 4×6 print … this was the perfect size to fit inside the frame die from the Animation Small Die Card set by Motion Crafts.

I had so much fun decorating each page with various stickers from both the Project Pad and the Cardstock Stickers sheet. I mixed in Enamel Dots and gold paperclips (from the Office Bucket Accessory Set – Gold and Black) for added dimension.

My daughter loves her little book! It was the perfect way to commemorate her Elementary School years! This type of project would be a fun keepsake for a graduate as well.

Bella Blvd: Back to School Page Inspired By the Iconic Apple

Happy Friday, friends! I have always loved the feeling of going back to school! The freshly sharpened pencils, the new box of crayons with their perfect points all lined up in beautiful rows, new clothes and shoes, seeing friends, and the feeling of a fresh start.

Today I am up on the Bella Blvd blog with a Back to School page about my son. I decided to use the iconic school symbol … the apple … as inspiration for my color choices.

Jana Eubank Bella Blvd New School Year Scrapbook Page 1 600

I love the simple colors of an apple … the red of its shiny skin, the green of the leaves, and the black of the stem. I found this beautiful image of an apple on pinterest HERE to get me started.

48c2bc5945ddf0b3877204440f95e36e

I lined the photos up in a single row in the center of the page, with a block of the Football Throw It paper in the center, cut to the same size of the photos. I decorated this block with Oh My Stars star paper pieces and used an Oh My Stars gift tag for the journaling.

The photos and journaling block are then anchored together with three rows of border stickers from the Soccer Fundamentals Stickers.

Jana Eubank Bella Blvd New School Year Scrapbook Page 4 600

Along the top of the photos is where I placed the title; using the “New” acrylic word along with alphabet letter stickers from the Soccer Fundamentals sticker sheet and Tiny Text Pumpkin Spice Stickers.

Jana Eubank Bella Blvd New School Year Scrapbook Page 2 600

I decorated the centers of the two letter “O”s with a couple of star die cuts, a button tied with twine, and a clear enamel sticker (Stampin’ Up Metallic Enamel Shapes). The green arrow and circular star stickers add a bit of fun to the title as well.

Jana Eubank Bella Blvd New School Year Scrapbook Page 3 600

With my design centered in the middle of the page, I felt like it needed to be framed a bit. I decided to “bookend” the top and bottom of the design with strips of the Oh My Stars McIntosh Stars paper with its clean and simple plus pattern. I then used the Stampin’ Up Border Ticket Tear punch to add a decorative strip of black cardstock below the top patterned paper strip.

Next time you sit down to scrapbook a page, try using the colors of a simple icon or image to guide your color choices. It was a lot of fun!
