Stashbusting: Eagle Award Dinner

JanaEubank_FelicityJane_EagleDinner2

Last year I stocked up on several Felicity Jane kits (swoon!), but I must have been too scared to cut into the beautiful papers, because I didn’t use them right away. No more! I’m making a point to get those beautiful papers cut up and made into pages for our family albums! Ha!

Last month I shared a couple of pages with you using the Nov. 2015 Felicity Jane kit, and I’m back this week with a couple more. I’ll share one today, and another one on Friday. Here goes!

EAGLE AWARD DINNER

At this point, I had just one little fall leaf wood veneer left in the kit (I used the others on this page last month). No worries! That cute little leaf made¬†the perfect “eagle feather” to adorn my title on this page about my daughter attending her junior high award dinner.

Everything here is from the November Felicity Jane kit with the exception of the journal spot. I picked that baby up in a pack of Seven Paper Baby Die Cuts that I found at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale.

These gold chipboard letters are from a super-old pack of Heidi Swapp chipboard letters. Basic fonts like this definitely have staying power in my stash and on my pages. ūüôā

These photos were quite busy with all of the people, people in the background, and different colors of clothes everyone was wearing. I chose to simplify things and change the photos over to black and white. This gives this memory a nostalgic-feel and keeps this page visually calm. I adore black and white photos!

Carta Bella Paper: Typewriter Gift Box

Jana Eubank Old World Travel Typewriter Photo 5
Are you looking for a fun way to give a gift to your father or grandfather this father day? Or maybe you have a graduate that is beginning their life journey this year? Create a fun gift box for either of these occasions using the Old World Travel Collection with its classic feel.

I created this typewriter die cut gift box using an electronic die cutting machine and the Natural White Linen Designer Cardstock. The typewriter cut file is from THIS amazing set by SVG Cuts.com called “Good Day at the Office.”
Next, I used the beautiful papers from the Old World Travel Collection to add color and a vintage feel.

But the fun part was adding the ephemera and embellishments to the top of the typewriter! I stacked several postcards shapes along with some die cuts, stickers and enamel dots to create the layered clusters in the paper carriage and on the front left corner of the typewriter. The black enamel dots almost mimic black ink droplets, don’t you think?!

I created the keys for the typewriter using the tile letter stickers from the Beach Day Element Sticker sheet. They work perfectly here!

The lid lifts off to reveal a nice-sized box perfect for a paperback book, a card, a fancy pen, a treat, a gift card, or whatever else you would like to give that special someone. Enjoy!

End of School Year Fun!

JanaEubank_GraduationCard

These past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind at our household. With the end of the school year and my oldest daughter graduating from high school, it’s been a constant stream of¬†fun activities, places to go, and people to see!

Here are a few pics from Jensyn’s big day! I’m so proud of our girl!

 

The end of the school year always brings the opportunity to do some creating for friends, teachers, and neighbors to say thanks for a great year. As you can see, tags and cards are my go-to solution!

First up, is a graduation card I created for my girl!

JanaEubank_GraduationCard

This super-cute sun image is by Lettering Delights and can be found here as a part of “The Happy Graduate” set. There are coordinating sentiments for each of the images in “The Happy Graduate – Tidings” set. I mixed and matched the whoo-hoo sentiment (meant for the owl) with the sun on my card and love how it came out!

My 12-year-old¬†daughter served as 7th grade president at school¬†and wanted to give a good-bye gift to the other officers she became such good friends with this year. We created this cute tag with the Layered Tags set by Lettering Delights and then added the eagle image (Cuddly Animals Set 2 by SVGCuts.com). I added a punched, glittery, red heart for more color and some twine around his neck. The sentiment is from the October Afternoon Summertime stamp set. The tag was attached to a box of gum, my daughter’s favorite treat!

My youngest daughter wanted something happy and colorful for her friends. She gave them her favorite candy, Skittles, with this cute rainbow tag attached. On the back she wrote each of them a note.

JanaEubank_RainbowTags1

Again, the tag comes from the Lettering Delights Layered Tags set, the rainbow is by Miss Kate Cuttables, and the sentiment stamp is from the same October Afternoon Summertime stamp set used above. The heart is a punch by American Crafts.

I started¬†a new calling in my church a couple of months ago working with the children of our congregation as the Primary Chorister. I love my calling! And I love the ladies I work with! It’s so much fun to catch up with them every Sunday.

One morning, my friend told us the funniest story and this phrase was part of the punchline. It¬†has kind of become an inside joke among us and I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so I created a fun little goodie box with cinnamon bears inside to give to each of them. I’m sharing it here because I think this would also make a really cute container to put Smore Supplies inside of for a neighbor or friend!

JanaEubank_SmokinHot1

The box and Ovals are from the Silhouette Design Store. The fire image is by Lettering Delights (from the “Love Me Tinder” set).

JanaEubank_SmokinHot2

I used the Silhouette pens to add custom tags to the tops of each one.

JanaEubank_SmokinHot3

Finally, I created these cute little cherry tags to go on gifts for a few gals in my neighborhood.

Both the tag and cherries are from the “Sweet Nothings – Tag Cards” set by Lettering Delights.

JanaEubank_SummerCherryTag1

I cut them from paper scraps hanging out in my stash, and then added a couple of gems and a brown button tied with twine. Then I tied them to brown lunch sacks that I embossed. They have such a fun, summer vibe about them!

JanaEubank_SummerCherryTag2

I have a few projects in the works that I’ll be sharing soon!

Happy Summer!

JanaEubank_Fourteen2

Well, I have a few projects to catch up on around here. Today, I thought I’d share with you the pages I have been creating with this month’s kit at NoelMignon.com. The “Pure Bliss” kit is sold out, unfortunately … but the next kit will be released next week! Come join us on the Noel Mignon Facebook page, the sneak peeks of the “Happy Days” kit have already started! And as always, I can’t WAIT to play with that one, too!!! Noel makes the BEST kits!!!

Okay, so here is what I have been working on …

FOURTEEN

For this page, I pulled out the My Mind’s Eye On Trend 2 papers from the kit and combined them with the On Trend 2 die cuts that I had in my stash. I had a lot of fun playing up the different triangular sections of the background paper by emphasizing them with thin strips of diagonal paper.

JanaEubank_Fourteen1

The Queen & Co. green acrylic flowers were the perfect little sparkly touch to add here-and-there around the page.

JanaEubank_Fourteen2

And I’m in LOVE with that coral grosgrain ribbon that came with the kit. It adds a luxurious feel tied around my photos.

SCHOOL SHOPPING

Next up, are these silly snapshots of my girl. At the end of the summer I take each kid on a special one-on-one shopping day to buy their school clothes. We always start with breakfast and add in lunch and a treat.

JanaEubank_SchoolShopping1

How CUTE are the letter stickers by Pink Paislee?! I wanted them to be the star of the show, so I kept the rest of the papers on the simple side.

JanaEubank_SchoolShopping2JanaEubank_SchoolShopping3

Along the bottom of the design I added this fun, sparkly decorative tape by Queen & Co. that was included in the kit. I stitched through the center of it and then roughed up the edges a bit with my fingernail.

REAL LIFE

This last page is a simple one featuring some of Maryn’s first selfies that I found on an old camera card.¬†It’s crazy how much she has grown up since these photos … making them all the more fun to scrap. She doesn’t like seeing herself so “young,” but , of course as her mom I think it’s fun to document how much they change each year.

JanaEubank_RealLife1

I had a hard time getting the colors right when editing these photos, but hopefully you get the idea.

JanaEubank_RealLife2

That daisy fringe ribbon just has my heart on this page! I love the frilly effect it adds here.

JanaEubank_RealLife3JanaEubank_RealLife4

Thanks for taking a look! As summer approaches, I will be in-and-out as life gets busy with the kids back at home … but I will do my best to check in here and share with you my crafty creations.

See you next time!
