Carta Bella Paper: Building a Background with 6×6 Paper Pads


Today I am sharing a vacation layout created with the Carta Bella Paper Are We There Yet? collection.

Jana Eubank Carta Bella Are We There Yet San Francisco Layout 1 600
For this page, I thought it would be fun to use my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic die cutting machine to die cut a background shape and than back the openings with several of the cute patterns from the 6×6 paper pad.

I used a cut file that I found in the Silhouette store. This particular shape had patterns in the center of each hexagon. I cut the shape from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock and then simply used a pair of scissors to cut the pattern away so that each hexagon had a blank opening where I could add the 6×6 patterned papers.

I placed my photo on a polaroid-style mat using a block of Navy Felt Designer Cardstock. To the right of the photo, I added two of the 3×4 cards cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper and National Parks Paper. I then embellished the bottom of the mat, as well as several of the hexagon shapes, with stickers, chipboard shapes, and brads.

Next, I used one of the large hexagons as a home for my title. I added a chipboard piece and enamel shape below the title to punch it up a bit.

I love the way this page turned out with all of the cute patterned papers. I’m definitely going to try this technique on another page soon.

Echo Park Paper: Exploring New Cities

I love to travel with my family. The first day in a new place is always exciting as we think about what kind of adventures we are about to have. The Go See Explore collection was perfect for capturing my family and their excitement on our first day in San Francisco.

We took a picture outside of the house we rented before heading downtown. The chipboard piece with the “And So the Adventure Begins” is so fitting about how we felt! I layered the globe enamel shape behind the left side of the chipboard piece, and then used the airplane on top … kind of like an arrow pointing us on our way to our adventure!

I created a cluster in the top right corner of our photos. I was especially drawn to the quote printed on the Ephemera die cut. It seemed fitting to go next to this photo of my kids posing in front of a heart painted with the Golden Gate bridge in downtown San Francisco. We definitely fell in love with that city and can’t wait to go back someday!

I used the chipboard “EXPLORE” banner pieces as my title and then created a dimensional cluster to the left of it. I used a Mini Paper Fan clustered with the chipboard stack of suitcases, arrow, and the “sightseeing” word. I also add the die cut that says “To Travel is to Live.” I always feel alert and alive when discovering and exploring new places!

What cities have you fell in love with as you have traveled? I’d love to know! We are needing some ideas for this summer’s family vacation. *wink*

Echo Park Paper: Go, See, Explore Projects

One of the collections I was assigned to work with for Echo Park Paper’s booth at Creativation in January was the Go, See, Explore collection. It is now available and I get to share with you my creations!
I had a lot of fun with this one! I really love vacation collections because they can be used for so much more than vacations … think “journey” through life, goals, graduation, school, boys, and more! Here is what I made.
………………………………………..
The Go See Explore collection was perfect for documenting my family’s adventure to San Francisco a few years ago. The bright colors and icons reminded me of all the wonderful city sights we enjoyed while we were there.
EXPLORE

I layered my photos on top of the light blue card cut from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper and then clustered together a variety of circular elements to the left of the photo.

I used a post card to the right of my photo to house my journaling. I cut out the city skyline from another one of the 4×6 Journaling Cards and layered that along the bottom of the postcard. To the right of my journaling, I tucked in a few of the tag die cuts.

I layered together a word sticker and die cut to serve as my title, and then added detail to the bottom of the photo band by layering together two of the border stickers from the Elements Sticker Sheet.

Queen & Co: Using the Foam Fronts Dies in Your Scrapbooking

Lately, I have been focusing on getting some older photos scrapbooked, in rotation with my newer photos. I try to switch back and forth … one new, one old, one new, one old … so that I can get caught up on our older memories, while still recording the details of our latest happenings.
Today I have two pages for you, both of them feature the NEW Foam Front dies.
This first page features newer photos of my husband and I when we went to the Magic Kingdom recently to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
MAGIC

I wanted to challenge myself to use the NEW Foam Front Mickey die in a creative way on this page and decided to use it as a journaling block.

I cut the shape using red solid cardstock and then backed it with a yellow solid paper. I outlined the mouse ears with a journaling pen and then sprinkled several toppings on the inside.
I combined together red and blue Sequin Sprinkles, white Lollies, red Candy Sprinkles, Neutral (black) Pearlies, blue donuts, as well as blue and black Fimo Fun Toppings for a festive look!

I added journaling strips to the top of the foam front shape and then placed my title work below.
I also created a fun cluster of embellishments at the top of the journaling block.

I added some festive Magic Ribbon around our photos and then finished it off with the “Love” flair from the Magic Flair set. Perfect for our anniversary, don’t you think?!

For this second page, I decided to work with some photos from 2010 that I have been ignoring for far too long. They are of my daughter and her friends at a Cast Party after they performed in their Elementary’s school play of Aladdin.
CAST PARTY
For this card, I used the Foam Front Stars Die to build a background for my page. I love the way it came together!
Jana Eubank Queen & Co Cast Party Layout 1 600
First, I cut blue and green cardstock with the Foam Front Stars die, and then used my trimmer to trim the die cuts into 4 1/4″ squares. Next, I embossed them with various embossing folders from my stash and then adhered them to a block of white cardstock, adding Yellow Skinny Glitter Tape along the seams for a touch of sparkle.

I added a strip of photos, tied with blue Sparkle String, and then got to work on the title and journaling block.

I used a tag card that I die cut on my Silhouette machine, layered on top of a piece of patterned paper. Green rivets decorate the tab of the card, and Bitty Beads add texture to the green chipboard letters I used as part of the title. At the top, I layered together more glitter tapes (Green Dot Glitter Tape and Yellow Check Glitter Tape).

For more color and texture, I sprinkled some yellow Button Bouquet II buttons around the page, along with the yellow stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings. They feel like confetti sprinkled on the page and definitely add a party feel! Yay! “Celebrate Good Times, Come On! … It’s a Celebration!”
