Echo Park Paper: Cruisin’ for a Summer Treat

I am always so inspired by the colors and icons of Echo Park Paper collections. When I saw the Summer Dreams collection for the first time, I just knew I had to make something that would incorporate all of the darling popsicles, ice cream cones, and snow cones. So an ice cream truck gift box it was!

I used my Sihouette Cameo machine to cut out the ice cream truck cut file by SVGCuts.com. I used the Solid Pink paper for the base, and then cut the decorative panels from the Say Cheese, Sweet As Summer, and Summer Vacation papers. I used the Solid Navy/Yellow paper for the wheels and trim pieces.

The window pieces were cut from vellum and then embossed with the Sunny Dots Embossing Folder for a bit of texture.
I added the speech bubble stickers to the front window, so that it appears like the people inside the ice cream truck are having a fun little conversation.

The back of the truck opens up so that you can place a fun treat inside for the recipient. I think this would be a really fun way to wish your child’s teacher (or anyone else) a Happy Summer Break!

The most fun part of projects like this, for me at least, is the embellishing! I added the chipboard “FUN” letters to the awning along with some shiny decorative brads and enamel dots.

It looks like you can walk right up to that window and order one of those delicious ice cream treats, doesn’t it?! The flamingo is there to greet you and take your order.

The other side of the box doesn’t get left out … I decorated it with the reader board sticker, and more chipboard pieces, stickers, brads, and enamel dots. I even added the small chipboard discs (decorative brads) and enamel dots to the wheels. You can never how too much pattern and texture on a fun project like this!
I even created a couple of pinwheels to go with it using the darling Sunny Pinwheel Die Set and the 6×6 papers and decorative brads.

Does this project get you excited for summer?! I am definitely ready to don my flip flops and grab a yummy, frozen treat!

Bella Blvd. February Guest Designer

This month I am the Guest Designer on the Bella Blvd. Blog. I have always loved Bella Blvd’s products and had a great time playing with three of their current collections.

This first page.features two of my daughters and the You Are Loved Illustrated Faith collection.

I used white cardstock as the base of my layout, spritzing it with a bit of teal spray mist, stitching the edges and matting it with a couple of the patterned papers before adding my photos and the other elements.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-2-600
I used the Heavens Paper to set off my main photo and then added  a couple of pennants, clear cuts, and a die cut flower to the bottom.
jana-eubank-you-are-loved-sisters-layout-3-600
On the left side of my page, I used the letter stickers to spell out my title, stitching the letters down with my sewing machine for a little more texture.

At the bottom of my page, I added a clear cut flower and a clear cut XOXO border, that I also added stitching to.

I have had this next photo waiting for the perfect papers to scrap it with for a few years now … I was delighted to receive the Barnyard Collection and knew it would be perfect for this fun memory about my daughter dressing up as a farmer for Career Day at her school

At the top of the page, I layered a couple of the cloud die cuts along with some pennants and hearts to give the sun in the corner a little more dimension. I added red gems to the hearts for a bit of sparkle.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-2-600
For the title, I used the “Smile” acrylic word along the bottom of my photo. I accented the left side with a broccoli die cut and radish puffy sticker.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-barynard-layout-3-600
In the bottom right corner of the page, I used die cuts to cover up the pre-printed pattern and create my own little dimensional farm scene. How cute is that chicken and bushel of apples?! I added my journaling on journaling strips created with my computer and sprinkled in a few punched hearts adorned with red gems.

I love how happy and bright this page turned out!

The final page I have for you today features the adorable Secrets of the Sea Collection.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-1-600
A few years ago we visited the Outerbanks of North Carolina. And even though the beach was literally across the street, my kids and their cousins seemed to prefer the ease of the swimming pool. I think it was nice to have snacks and shade just a few footsteps away, and they also enjoyed now having sand everywhere. LOL!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-2-600
To draw focus to my main photo, I placed the title along the bottom edge along with a little ocean scene created with the die cuts, stickers, and puffy stickers.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-3-600
I ADORE the embossed nature of the puffy stickers and couldn’t resist sprinkling those darling, little blue fish everywhere!
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-4-600
I placed the larger photos in a vertical column on the page, using one of the 4×6 cut apart cards to ground my journaling strips.
jana-eubank-bella-blvd-secrets-of-the-sea-swim-layout-5-600
The clips, die cuts, and fish puffy sticker were perfect for adorning the “empty” corners of my photo.

Carta Bella Paper: Let’s Cruise Collection

It’s been about 5 years since I have been on a cruise ship (my husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary on a cruise vacation) … but the sights, sounds, and experience of being a majestic vessel came flooding back when I flipped through the NEW “Let’s Cruise” collection by Carta Bella Paper.

Here are the projects I created for the Creativation 2017 booth using these products.

SET SAIL Layout

I used the Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock for the base of this layout, and had fun layering up all of my favorite patterned papers to create a base for my photos.

All of the images, patterns, and colors of these pieces completely delight me!

These tags!

And how cute is that Captain dude with his monacle?! … I love the way the cruise ship looks like it is sailing right across the bottom of my photo!

BON VOYAGE CARD
You will want to pack your bags and set sail with this card featuring the beautiful cruise ship image from the Let’s Cruise collection! The ship image glides across the front of the card surrounded by layers of vintage-looking tags and circle ephemera. This collection makes me want to pack my life into an old leather trunk and head out on an adventure across the ocean!

CRUISE LADY CARD
I love the retro look of the cruise lady on this card and decided to pull out the more feminine colors from the Let’s Cruise collection for this card. I used a color palette of coral, yellow, and aqua, adding in the floral icons from this collection for a tropical feel! A few gems placed on the flower centers makes this card sparkle!

Echo Park Paper: Before Summer Officially Ends

Happy Monday, scrappy friends! Before Summer officially ends, I thought I would share a page about summer beginning! LOL!

LET SUMMER BEGIN

One of my favorite collections this past summer was the Carta Bella Paper Beach Day collection. I love the color scheme and can actually see myself pulling out these papers year round. For today’s page, though, I used it with some photos of my daughter and her friends celebrating the beginning of summer with a get-together on the last day of school.

janaeubank_echoparkpaper_letsummerbegin1

The first thing I did was create a backwards “L” shape on my page for my photos to be anchored on. I cut the strip of striped paper from the Surf Shop paper and placed it vertically on the right side of my page.

Next, I matted my photos and adhered them to a block of the Cruising paper. At the bottom of my photos I placed a strip of the Border Strips paper. The polka dot and plaid were next to each other on the paper, I added the zig zag stitching with my sewing machine for a little more texture.

janaeubank_echoparkpaper_letsummerbegin3

I punched the striped yellow circles from the other side of the Border Strips paper and then scattered them across the page in a downward diagonal. I love the confetti/party feel this added to my layout!

janaeubank_echoparkpaper_letsummerbegin2

For the title, I used some die cut white letters I bought in the Target Dollar Spot along with some blue Thickers from my stash. The Beach Day icons really jazz up the title and make it fun!

janaeubank_echoparkpaper_letsummerbegin4

I created the journal block at the bottom of my page using cardstock scraps from my stash, typing the journaling out with my typewriter. A few brads and enamel dots from the Beach Day collection rounds everything out!

janaeubank_echoparkpaper_letsummerbegin5

SUPPLIES: Carta Bella Paper Beach Day Collection: Beach Ball Bash paper, Surf Shop Paper, Border Strips Paper, Cruising Paper, Element Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Decorative Brads, Enamel Dots, Ephemera Pack; Die Cut Letters (Target Dollar Spot), Blue Dimensional Letter Stickers (American Crafts Thickers), Cardstock Scraps, Typewriter, Sewing Machine, Thread, Adhesives, Trimmer, Scissors

Are there any lingering summer pages you are itching to scrap before the leaves start falling? I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to dig into the fall and Halloween papers TODAY! It’s my favorite time of year!

See you next time!
