Carta Bella Paper: Ahoy

Earlier this week I pulled out the Carta Bella Paper Yacht Club collection to work on a layout. While it was sitting on my desk, I decided to create the following two-page layout as well!

AHOY

While we were visiting Norfolk, Virginia, a few years ago, we toured a Sailing School Ship called the Baroque Eagle. It was so interesting and we learned so much!

This is an older collection(which means it’s getting harder to find), but so timeless for use on nautical-themed pages.

That woodgrain decorative tape has my heart! I love the rustic touch it adds and sprinkled a few strips of it throughout my design.

While we were touring the ship, we were each given a fake coin featuring the Baroque Eagle. It works perfectly as an embellishment along with the chipboard pieces, don’t you think?!

I cut out the letters from the Alphabet Letters paper to create the title. I love how each letter has it’s own style and personality. I replaced the letter “O” with one of the chipboard pieces from the 6×12 Chipboard set. The anchor chipboard piece and sailboat decorative brad add more flair!

I used this sticker set … along with the Carta Bella Yacht Club collection to create the following layout.

FIREWORKS ON THE PIER

I used the stickers and a brad from my stash to accent the top of my photo here.

I added the sun, sailboat, and “Have Fun!” sticker to accent my title here.

Below my photos I clustered several stickers together and created this nautical scene. How cute is that whale?!

More Shimelle Go Now Go

Happy Thursday, friends! I’m back with two more projects using a homemade kit I put together featuring the Shimelle Go Now Go collection.

CAMP FUN

At this point with my homemade kit I had lots of scraps left … I decided to see if I could layer them up to create a resting spot for some more camping photos. Here is the result!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Camp Fun Layout 1 600

I had purchased several of these Pebbles sticker sets at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale last year to give to some teenage girls at my church to use in a journaling project. I had a couple of sets left and thought they looked adorable with the Go Now Go paper on this page.

The flowers in the tin can was perfect for these camping photos … it’s a subtle nod to all the times we collect wildflowers and display them on the campground picnic table in a paper cup or left over tin can from dinner. Ha!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Camp Fun Layout 2 600

My goal was to do what I could to use up as many of the supplies as I could from my homemade kit … including the letters. I really like the way the bright green pops off of the page! I added more of the Pebbles stickers to decorate the open space to the left of the title and sprinkled in my favorite Stampin’ Up Metallic Enamel Shape stickers (seriously! I love these things! I have been using them on EVERYTHING lately!)

A line of red stitching around the edge adds the perfect finishing touch!

“HI” CARD

While I had everything out on my table, I decided to use up what I could by creating a card.

Jana Eubank Stashbuster Hi Card 1 600

I layered together leftover bits of the patterned papers and then added stickers and a sentiment with the chipboard letters.

The result is a cute card I would be proud to give to a friend!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my homemade kit projects these past couple of days. Tomorrow I will be back with a fun back-to-school layout I created for Bella Blvd.

Bye for now!

Working with a Homemade Kit featuring Shimelle Go Now Go

I’m not sure if it is the beginning of a new school year, but I have been itching to play with some paper collections I purchased awhile ago and haven’t made the time to use. I decided to put together some homemade kits with those products and work on creating at least two projects with them to share with you throughout the end of the year. My stash needs some love!

This week the kit I put together has lots of Shimelle Go Now Go. I was able to create four projects (Yay, Me!!!) with this kit and wanted to share them with you today and tomorrow.

…………………………………………………………..

First up … a two-page layout!

CATCH & RELEASE

I was in the mood to play with some cute cut files by Lettering Delights on this one. So that is what I did. The images featured on this page are from the “Happy Trails Too” set.

**SIDENOTE: I really struggled to get the colors just right on these pictures … so I hope you’ll bear with me!

Added into the mix are some older Pebbles stickers … I believe these ones were from the Walnut Grove collection.

Jana Eubank Catch Release Scrapbook Layout 2 600Jana Eubank Catch Release Scrapbook Layout 3 600

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 Machine to cut out the “Catch” letters (Font: Bebas Neue) and the Ampersand (“St. Patrick’s Day Set” by Echo Park Paper; Design #122732 in the Silhouette Design Store).

Those cute chipboard letter stickers are an older set from Bella Blvd.

It’s been awhile since I have played with my beloved embossing folders, so I used one here to add pattern to the light green pine tree.

The other side of the layout features this chubby bear; fishing for his dinner! Haha!

Next up, is a single page layout featuring some vacation photos.

OUR TRIP

These photos were taken on the way home from a long family vacation. The kids were tired and, while we had a blast on this trip, we were all ready to get back home. Our fun had officially worn us out!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 1 600

I used the Shimelle Go Now Go “Fly” paper for the background of this page, and then clustered my photos together on vertical strips.

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 2 600

At the top of the photos, I layered together several of the Go Now Go Chipboard stickers with one of the Wooden Buttons … of course I had to use the heart to go with the “I Left My Heart in Nauvoo,” right?! I also added in a couple of red gem hearts for good measure!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 3 600

More gem hearts and another wooden button accents these chipboard stickers. I had to add a little sarcasm to this page with the “Happy Travels” chipboard sticker … because you can clearly see that Camryn was DONE. Done, and ready to be finished with this flying home thing! Haha!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 4 600

I used the chipboard letter stickers again on this page for the title, clustering more stickers around it to give it some personality!

The “adventure” acrylic piece is available at Freckled Fawn. (I LOVE the handwritten script of this piece … it was created by talented friend, Crafty Jen Schow!)
