Stashbusting: Beach Fun

This is about the time during Summer that I feel it slipping between my fingers. There’s a sudden panic to fit in one more road trip, or to make sure we have checked off all of our summer bucket list items as we start making the shift to thinking about Back to School.

The great thing is that Summer can last all year long in the scrapbook world! Just pull out some bright papers and spend some time working on a summer memory or two.

Today I am sharing a page using the Carta Bella Paper Beach Day collection with a few fish making an appearance from the Echo Park Paper Under the Sea collection. I’ve mixed these items together with a few sticker sets that have been hanging around in my stash.

My fish are flying out of the ocean waves with the help of a few yellow toothpicks that I grabbed from my kitchen.

I created a little scene on this circle punched from the Cool Cruising paper using the Beach Day Element Stickers, a puffy sun sticker by Mambi, and a dimensional umbrella sticker from an older Recollections sticker sheet.

The “F-U-N” pennant stickers were also from the Recollections sticker sheet and look so cute here with the blue Momenta letter stickers. (It’s not often you find bright blue letter stickers … they are usually aqua or teal … so I snag this color up whenever I see it somewhere!)

More stickers and a punched photograph adorn the circular elements at the bottom of the page.

I love printing my photos in smaller sizes so I have room to play with design elements on a page, and this one was a lot of fun to do!

Carta Bella Paper: Pack Your Bags for Portland

This year for our summer vacation my family spent a week in a beach house in Oregon. It was absolutely amazing. The first night we arrived we took in the sights and sounds of Portland before making the drive out to the coast. We ate at an amazing restaurant and I couldn’t wait to get home and scrapbook about it using the new Pack Your Bags collection.

I was so happy to see a tag on the Hello World Paper that included the Portland airport. Of course I had to include it at the top of my page!

Because this was the day of our arrival, I used the airplane sticker to create a little scene at the top of the page. The clouds were cut from a paper in the 6×6 paper pad.

It was raining in Portland as we were exploring the city (no surprise there, ha! ha!). I represented the rain on this page by creating  the blue textured background with the Destination Stripe 6×6 Stencil and some texture paste (tinted blue with spray mist) on the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock. I love the way it looks!
I stacked together several suitcase stickers to accent my page title of “Discover Portland.” The “discover” word is from the Escape Word Die Set. The “Portland” letters were cut from a red paper of the 6×6 paper pad using the Script Alphabet Die Set.

The patterned border strips and pink paper below the title are also from the 6×6 paper pad. I added my typed journaling strips to the pink paper and then accented the bottom right corner of the page with several stickers layered on top of the red/white ticket from the Ephemera pack.

Wherever your summer vacation may take you, the Carta Bella Pack Your Bags collection is the perfect way to document your adventure!

Simple Stories: Smile

I’m back with another page using the Simple Stories Hello Summer collection and a June 2018 sketch by PageMaps!

SMILE

These snapshots are from our trip to Hawaii a couple of years ago. We were just standing on this path waiting for a tour guide … and as I looked at my family, I just felt so grateful to be there in that beautiful place, with these beautiful people. Definitely a reason to “Smile,” don’t you think?! Life is so good!

Jana Eubank Simple Stories Hello Summer Smile 1 600

I anchored the “Smile” sticker on a speech bubble die cut (created from a metal die I have in my stash) to give it a bit more presence as my title. Next, I surrounded the title with a few more stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet. The sun cloud, leaves, and flower are all from this sheet. That cute little lime slice is from the chipboard sheet.

I used a stamp from my stash to create the journaling block and then decorated the left side with a chipboard cactus and more stickers.

At the bottom of the page, I used the chipboard banner as a resting place for the “Relax” die cut and other elements. I stamped my date here with a Heidi Swapp date stamp and then added a bit of Heidi Swapp Black Velvet Color Shine to break up the linear feel of this page. (I’m always soooo nervous to add that final step of ink splatters … thankfully, I felt good about how they fell on the page this time! Whew! :D)

I think that pineapple “Peace, Love, & Pineapples” paper is just so cute here and really makes this page shine!

Simple Stories: Fun in the Sun

Last Friday I shared a double-page layout I created for the Simple Stories Blog using the Hello Summer collection. I must have been in a summer-y mood, because I couldn’t stop … and have several more projects to share with you this week using that collection! So let’s call this the week of “Hello Summer!” 😀

See these two papers? These are the kinds of papers that get me on a roll when I am creating …

“Who’s Ready for Summer?” Paper

10139600

“Paradise Found” Paper

10143l_600

I LOVE a paper with large, cute titles I can cut out on my pages (I always feel like I want to use ever last one!) AND I love large adorable florals that I can cut out and use as page accents. And I use both of these on almost ever project I am going to share with you this week. ❤

FUN IN THE SUN

I love when my daughters will twin with me … I know it’s a bit goofy, but it’s still fun! My daughter and I got matching t-shirts on our trip to Hawaii a couple of summers ago and this is just a quick snapshot of us at the airport wearing them on the way home.

I used a this sketch by Laura Whitaker as inspiration for this page. I always love working with Laura’s sketches!

Everything here is from the Hello Summer collection, with the exception of the yellow solid cardstock (from my stash), and the pink diagonally striped paper. That one came from a paper pad by 3 Birds that I purchased from HSN several years ago.

See how cute those titles are on projects?! I loved making it one of the main elements of the page and then dressing it up with a few stickers … how cute are those watermelon slices with their sunglasses?! Those watermelons are twinning … just like me and my daughter are! Bwaaaahaaaa!

I’ve been pulling out my border punches lately … here I used a large, scallop one by EK Success across the bottom of the page. I tried to locate the large scallop punch on the internet, but couldn’t find it anywhere. Hopefully, you have a tool in your stash that will help you achieve something similar … or you could always use an electronic die cutting machine, or create a homemade template? I do really love the large scallop here!

I’ve used one of the fussy-cut florals (from the Paradise Found paper) in the upper left corner of this page, along with the “Hot, Hot, Hot” and mini flower die cuts from the Hello Summer Bits & Pieces pack.
