Echo Park Paper: Life’s A Picnic!

One of the first things my family loves to do once the weather warms up is to pack up a picnic and head to the local park.
Pass the picnic vibe on to someone else with a treat packaged in this adorable Picnic Basket Favor Box created with the Echo Park Paper Good Day Sunshine collection!

I added a sweet little banner to the basket handle by punching the banner pieces from the Ephemera pack with a 1/16″ hole punch and then threading them together with some twine. Banners always make ordinary occasions feel special, don’t you think?!

Peeking through the holes of the basket on the sides, you can see one of my favorite patterns from this collection … the dark blue floral from the 6×6 paper pad! I will definitely be picking up multiple sheets of it’s 12×12 counterpart … the Festive Floral paper.

I created a cluster on the side of the basket, by layering together Ephemera pieces along with some delicious-looking, chipboard icons. I’m ready to kick back with a tall glass of lemonade on a warm, breezy day … How about you?!

Simple Stories: Hello Sunshine

Hi, Scrappers! I’m up on the Simple Stories blog today with a new page using the Welcome Spring collection.
Jana Eubank Simple Stories Welcome Spring Hello Sunshine 1 600
One of my favorite things about Simple Stories is the beautiful floral papers in each of their collections. I LOVE fussy-cutting out the flowers and using them to decorate my page. Here I have used the flowers from the Hello Spring Paper.

On this page, the flowers are the most colorful thing on the page. I placed them at the top of the page to accent my journaling …

American Crafts: Feeling Spring Fever with All the Good Things!

My favorite thing about springtime is seeing the world burst with energy and color as the leaves on the tree, flowers, and critters begin to come out of hiding. It’s such a welcome sight after a monochromatic winter.
Today I have a colorful springtime layout using the Vicki Boutin All the Good Things collection by American Crafts.

These photos of my kids are from Easter from a few years ago, and instead of dressing up in the typical soft pastels, we opted for bright colors. The color palette of the All the Good Things collection complimented my photos perfectly!

I used two sheets of Soul Food paper as my page background and then had fun layering all of the beautiful florals and butterflies in clusters around my photos!

I love the variety of sizes of butterflies included on the Social Butterfly paper. I fussy cut several of them out to scatter among the flowers.

I used the 7″x10″ Mixed Media pad to die cut clouds for my page. I added a stamped date to one of them and then stamped phrases to the others using the All the Good Things Roller Phrase Stamp.

The epoxy dome stickers from the Embellishments add texture and shine to each cluster.

Next, I added a few phrase die cuts and a journal block to the right page using the Frames Ephemera Die Cuts.

Creating this page has me itching to enjoy the blue skies, flowers, and sights and sounds of critters fluttering about. Come on, Spring! Where are you? I can’t wait for you to arrive!

American Crafts: Stay Colorful with Easter Egg Favor Boxes

 
It’s always fun to gather family together for Easter dinner or an Easter egg decorating party in the Spring. Why not create these darling Easter egg-shaped favor bags for your guests using the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection this year?!
Jana Eubank - American Crafts - Dear Lizzy - Stay Colorful - Easter Egg Favor Bags 1 600
I love choosing a holiday icon and incorporating it into my party decor. This time, I chose to use the egg. I love this shaped bag that I was able to cut out using my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutting machine using Design #124445 from the Silhouette Design Store.
I cut the base of the bag from white textured cardstock, and then used papers from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 12×12 Single Sided Paper Pad for decorating.

The first thing I did was to choose the papers for the flat decorative panels of each bag. I chose the marbled paper of the center egg first, because it reminded me of what eggs look like when you dye them! I then chose the yellow script and pink papers to coordinate with the marbled paper.  The foiled designs of the paper pad look extra special on this project!

Next, I used a pair of scissors to fussy-cut several flowers and butterflies from papers in the pad. The foil outlines of the flowers really help them to stand out. They look so elegant and would be pretty adorning the plate of each person and the Easter dinner table. Next, I chose a Glittered Word Cardstock Die Cut sentiment to go on the front of each bag.

The Glittered Words are mounted on a banner shape handcut from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 6×6 paper pad. The smaller patterns of the 6×6 paper pad are perfect for grounding the sentiments, and the patterns don’t compete with the shapes of the letters, making the sentiment difficult to read.

I then used the Stay Colorful Alpha Clear Acrylic Stamps to create a personalized tag for each favor box. I LOVE the font of these stamps! I clipped the tag onto the handle of the egg box with one of the Iridescent Mini Clothespins. CUTE!!!

These egg favor boxes are the perfect way to add that unique touch to your Easter party. Your guests are sure to feel special!
