Noel Mignon: Church Selfies

JanaEubank_ChurchSelfies3

Today I have a new page to share with you using the Noel Mignon February Heart of Gold kit. I had these silly photos of my daughter keeping herself entertained at a long church meeting by taking selfies of herself on my phone. I started off by grouping the photos together on a block of solid blue patterned paper from the kit.

From there I thought it would be fun to fill the empty corner with the label shapes from the Pink Paislee Memorandum paper. I trimmed them out with scissors and then added my title and journaling.

At the bottom of the labels I added a fussy-cut flower cluster from the My Mind’s Eye Hello Gorgeous paper. I love the life this brings to the page and the way it pulls out the pink from my daughter’s cheeks … especially since these photos were a bit on the cool side to begin with … the pink warms them right up!

This week, our design challenge on the blog is called “Hearts All a Flutter,” where we are to add a dangling or interactive element to our page. I dug into my stash and found these cute, little My Mind’s Eye charms I had in my collection. I added them to the label phrase at the top of the page and the phrase strip at the bottom of the photos. This girl of mine definitely holds the key to my heart! I just love her silly and fun personality!

I hope you are enjoying warmer days where you are, too!

Happy Spring!

Echo Park Paper: Easter Basket

Happy Spring! The sun has come out here in Utah and the snow is melting away. That means that the bunny will be hopping his way to our homes in just a few weeks!  I thought it would be fun to welcome his arrival by creating a sweet, little Easter basket using the darling Echo Park Easter collection. It’s also featured on the Echo Park Paper Blog today.

The star of this project is the famous bunny himself! I used the Peter Cottontail Die Set and the Spring Pink/Brown Distressed Solid paper to create my pink bunny. He has such a big job to do every year, that I thought he could use a little support from our little chick friend in the Easter Basket. They make such a cute pair!

The basket is filled with eggs and a Carrot Treat Box that I cut using this Echo Park Silhouette Carrot Box Shape. I decorated the top of the carrot with one of the Easter tags from the Ephemera Pack along with a sheer bow and a button tied with twine. This little box came together so quickly! I can’t wait to create a basket full of them to give to my nieces for our Easter dinner this year!

I made the basket feel even more special by accenting the edge with a polka dot paper ruffle strip that I zig zag stitched on my sewing machine before adhering it. Won’t it be pretty sitting out on my table this year? I love it!

Echo Park Paper: Spring Tussie Mussies

Growing up my mom would tell me stories about how she and her friends would use wallpaper to make May Day cones each year to leave on the doorsteps or doorknobs of their neighborhood friends on May 1st. They would fill them with treats or little flowers they picked from their yards or the fields … just to brighten someone’s day. Doesn’t that sound like an absolutely charming, friendly thing to do?! Ever since hearing her stories, I have always wanted to make my own … but I’m thinking we shouldn’t have to wait until May 1st to spread a little sunshine … it could be something really fun to do ANY time this Spring!

I created my Spring Tussie Mussies using the Spring collection by Echo Park Paper and they are featured on the Echo Park Paper blog today. I selected the tone-on-tone patterns to create the base of the cone and then added more colorful patterned accent panels to the sides. It was so much fun picking and choosing the different paper combinations from the adorable Spring papers!

I wanted each cone to have it’s own personality and had fun picking and coordinating the Spring Ephemera and Spring Element Stickers to decorate each one.
For the green Tussie Mussie, I created a rosette for the front panel from the Sparkling Stripe patterned paper.
I decorated mine by adding Spring die cut ephemera, manually die cut flowers and leaves (using Echo Park metal dies), and decorative brads. The top of the box is finished off with a pink ribbon bow and ephemera tag.

The front of the yellow Tussie Mussie features a layered award ribbon shape inspired and created from the Echo Park Award Ribbon Silhouette shape. I added the hot air balloon ephemera die cut circle and a sticker sentiment to the front. The balloon looks like it is floating in the sky among the die cut clouds created with the Under the Weather die.

I matted an element sticker with the Echo Park Stamp Silhouette shape for the front panel of the pink Tussie Mussie. I tied a bit of twine around the block and then added die cut flowers (Spring Flowers Die) and leaves (Fall Branch Die Set) as accents. The top is finished with a die cut bow created from the blue word paper from the collection.

I can’t wait to surprise my kids with these fun springtime treats! I think I will hang them on their bedroom doorknobs to discover one of these mornings!!
Have a great week!

Echo Park Paper: Spring Die Cut Box

I’m so happy the groundhog said that Spring would come early this year! This winter has been so beautiful, but I’m always happy to see the sun start shining again. 🙂

The new Spring Collection by Echo Park Paper especially has me in the mood for Spring! My first project for Echo Park Paper Blog is up today using this collection. I decided to create a Springtime gift box to send to someone to brighten up their day.

I decorated the top of the box with a quote block from the Spring Ephemera pack. Next, I created a happy scene all around it using the Spring Element Stickers. It was so much fun to add extra, little details like decorative brads and buttons.

For the front of the box, I added a decorative flower brad along with a digitally die cut flower using an Echo Park Silhouette Shape. The edge of the lid is trimmed with pink ric rac.

I can’t wait to fill up this adorable box with some goodies for a friend!
