Echo Park Paper: Wedding Gazebo Gift Box

I love a beautiful outdoor wedding in the summertime! Create a crisp, white gazebo adorned with flowers to collect wedding cards at your next wedding celebration … or maybe even use this as a special gift box! The Echo Park Paper Wedding Bliss collection is perfect for this!

I created the box using the Carta Bella Paper Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock and the gorgeous papers from the Wedding Bliss collection. I cut the Gazebo Cut File (Winter Gazebo by SVGCuts.com) using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine.

I wanted the top of the gazebo to really catch your eye, so I used the Wedding Floral Paper with its beautiful gold foil accents. I added detail to the edges by embossing white cardstock with the Dainty Damask embossing folder.
Next, I created some big, beautiful flowers  and a Mini Paper Fan to use as a focal point on the roof. The flowers were cut using the Rose Flower – Small Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #193699 in the Silhouette Design Store). The leaves are from the Flower Cut File by Echo Park Paper (Design #192286 in the Silhouette Design Store).
I tucked in a couple of tags from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack for even more interest.

For the windows I used the Easter Vellum Dot Paper in Blush Bunny. I adhered it “inside out” so that the dots were a more subtle pink. I fussy-cut the banners from the Forever and Always Paper to form a swag all the way around the gazebo, adding in a couple of lengths of pearl strands for more dimension.
I punched the flowers from the Lt. Pink/Pink Coordinating Solid paper and then added enamel dots for the flower centers.

The box opens up so that you can place electronic lights inside, if you would like. Here you can see the vellum adhered to the inside of the box with the pattern facing inwards.

I added the “Bride & Groom” sticker and heart stickers to the doorway. Look how cute it looks all lit up in the dark!

On the bottom portion of the box, I created another cluster of embellishments with more die cut leaves and two more Mini Paper Fans. I added a couple of enamel dots to the center of one of the paper fans for a bit of shine. I added the “I Do” sticker to the center of the other one.

Another great use for this project would be to use it as a centerpiece of a table; either at a wedding, on a small table along with the guest book, or maybe as a fun decoration for a bridal shower. There are so many possibilities!

Scrapbook Page: She is Truly Lovely

Hi Friends! I’ve been on a roll lately with my scrapping and blogging. I’ll take advantage of that … I’m sure it will shift a bit as the months get warmer and the days get a bit busier.

As a reminder, I post my work here on my blog, as well as Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. So feel free to follow me on whatever platform you enjoy using the most!

SHE IS TRULY LOVELY

A little while ago I purchased several pieces of the 1Canoe2 Hazelwood collection. At the scrapbook store where I purchased it, they had the Pink Paislee C’est La Vie line next to it and it looked so lovely together! I hadn’t picked up any of that Pink Paislee line as of yet, so I purchased some of it and have combined these two collections together on the next three pages I’ll be sharing with you this week. This is the first of the bunch.

This page features my adorable sister-in-law at her bridal shower a couple of years ago. I adore Jessi! And I’m so glad she is a part of our family. She proves that my brother has a head on his shoulders … Haha! … because she is that amazing! She is the most kind-hearted, hardest working, sweetest person I have ever met. My brother is a lucky guy!

I fussy-cut lots of florals and butterflies to use on this page. I love when you can get a lot of mileage out of patterned paper like that!

I used the Pink Paislee “Take Me Away” Thicker phrase for my title along with some older tile letter stickers by My Mind’s Eye.

I left the checked branding strip on this page, opting to trim 1/2″ off the top of the paper instead. I stitched along it and love the contrast of pattern and color it adds.

Guest Designing at Ruby Rock-It

What a treat to be back guest designing on the Ruby Rock-It Blog today! I had the pleasure of playing with their Carnival Queen collection back in May and was happy to have the chance to work with them again … this time with the beautiful At Last Collection. Ruby Rock-It even sent an extra At Last collection for me to give away to one of my readers! So nice! So … if you would like a chance to win this collection, please leave a comment on this blog post by Friday, October 25th, 2013. I will announce the winner on Saturday, October 26th. (Due to shipping costs, the winner will need to be within the contiguous United States. Thanks for understanding!)

Even though this collection is clearly meant to scrapbook wedding/anniversary, I have a household that includes three daughters and knew that the soft colors and glittery accents would be perfect for scrapping my girls. Even the papers shimmer, as they are printed on a pearlescent paper. Swoon! Here is what I made.

SPEC-TACULAR

I had a lot of fun with the sliver glittery accents on this page. (I really wish my photos would do it the justice it deserves!) This page is all about my daughter and her first eye appointment where she got to try on all kinds of new frames. I arranged them together in a row and then underscored them with the white and silver glitter banner border piece.

Want to know the coolest thing about all the die cuts in this collection? If one side of the die cut doesn’t work, you simply flip it over for another color choice. The butterfly on this page is gold foil on one side and printed gray and white on the other. I used the gray side. 🙂

BEAUTIFUL MOMENT

JanaEubank_BeautifulMoment1

I love the fun and flirty patterns in this collection. For this page, I began wanting to accent my photo with those two cute feather die cuts. I tied them together with string and then looked for patterned papers to go with my photo. I settled on this darling heart print and the pink damask!

At the top of the page I used sections cut from three of the border strips. The dictionary print border, the hot air balloon border, and the clothespin frame border. I added a punched heart to the clothespin frame on a pop dot for more dimension.

Behind the layers, I tried out my new Teresa Collins eBosser for the first time with it’s HUGE embossing folders. FUN! I embossed a piece of white vellum with the starburst pattern for subtle texture.

At the top left corner of the photo, I cut out a banner shape from one of the cut apart cards and layered several die cuts together in a cluster. The gold foil is so pretty!

JanaEubank_BeautifulMoment3

Here’s a closer look at the feathers, a frame die cut, and more punched heart. I just love how it all came together!

Finally, I couldn’t resist putting together a simple wedding card. How cute are these little bride and groom die cuts?! They were begging to be layered together! … Happily ever after … Always and Forever! The sentiment was cut from a patterned paper sheet with TONS of phrases that would be perfect for cards and labeling photos in a wedding book. I sure could have used those when I was putting together my wedding book a million years ago! 😉
