Simple Stories: Mr. and Mrs. Scrapbook Page

Hello, Simple Stories Fans! Today I am sharing a wedding layout using the beautiful and timeless Always & Forever collection.
Jana Eubank Simple Stories Always Forever Layout 1 600
My brother and his wife had the most beautiful wedding. Their color scheme was a unique combination of each of their favorite colors; orange and green. Their flowers were the most beautiful and different I had ever seen, with a fresh, citrus-y, summer vibe about them.
No matter what color scheme your wedding celebration is, your pictures will look gorgeous  scrapbooked with the Always & Forever collection. The neutral and timeless colors of this collection allow YOUR color scheme to stand out and be the star of the show, just like they are supposed to be!

I chose a favorite photo of the couple and gave it the special treatment, accentuating it with all kinds of papers and goodies layered around it. The photo block is anchored on the page by a vertical band of paper strips. The strand of lightbulbs across the top of the photo lets you know this is a very special occasion and it is time to celebrate!

Who can resist fussy-cutting out flowers for a wedding page? I sure can’t! Flowers and weddings just go hand-in-hand!

I used the chipboard “Mr. and Mrs.” stickers as the title for this page. A couple of friendly birds and a shiny gold heart give the title additional personality!

This photo was taken just moments after the ceremony, so of course I had to use the adorable “Just Married” sign sticker. I surrounded it with the wedding cake, gift box, hearts, and wedding ring for a bit of dimension and shine.

Weddings are the beginning of a couple’s forever story, and scrapbooking their photos with the Always & Forever collection is the perfect way to treat them special!

Echo Park Paper: Just Married Vintage Car

Hello, Friends! Last week I shared a fun wedding decor project on the Echo Park Paper Blog using the Just Married collection.

I spotted this cut file for a Vintage Car by Cre8tiveCutz.com awhile ago and thought it would make the cutest centerpiece for a wedding celebration! I couldn’t wait to cut it out using the papers from the Just Married collection.

The label stickers from the Element Sticker sheet make perfect license plates!

The side of the car is decked out with lots of flowers, a banner, a beautiful wedding cake, and a sign for the Bride and Groom. Some of the flowers get a bit of added dimension with Enamel Dot flower centers. A few sprigs of greenery created with the Spring Greenery Die Set are tucked behind each flower cluster.

The swag sticker is the perfect accent for the back of the car.

American Crafts: Hand Lettering

I love exploring my creativity in all kinds of ways and have really enjoyed expanding my horizon into the world of hand-lettering with the help of Kelly Creates by American Crafts. I have been practicing with the “Learn Brush Lettering” workbook  and the Kelly Creates Black Brush Pens.

While I am building and honing my new skills, I can still have success with the Kelly Creates Traceable stamps!
I have been wanting to try my hand at bullet journaling and decided to give it a go using a Kelly Creates Practice Journal and Practice Journal Insert.
First, I made myself a Habit Tracker spread for the month of April. It looks like I did the hand-lettering across the top, doesn’t it?! No, I’m not quite that good yet … so the Traceable Stamps come in handy. Keep reading below to see how I used them!

Next, I wanted to create a spot to write down my TO DO list each day. I decided on a two-page spread for each week of the month. On the left side of the spread, I will write my personal list, and on the right side, I will write my work list for each day.
I used the Months stamps to add “April” to the top of the page, and then added the Days of the Week down the left side.

It’s tough to see in the photo above, but if you look carefully at the photo below, you will notice that I stamped the days of the week in a very, light gray ink. I used a Multicolored Brush Pen to letter on top of the stamped image; allowing me to get a great result and practice my lettering at the same time!

I had so much fun creating my little set up, that I went right ahead into May, changing the color to a blue Multicolor Brush Pen for the new month. I used the Quotes stamps to add encouraging sentiments to the top of each page. I then used the fine-tipped black pen from the Here & There Detail Doodlers to fill in the rest of the details.

I LOVE that I was able to get such beautiful, hand-lettered results by tracing the stamped images for my bullet journal pages … but that’s not all the stamps can be used for! Try using them as stamped sentiments on your other projects!

When I think of spring, I think of May Day Tussie Mussies … and Bridal and Baby showers. I combined the two ideas together here by using the One Canoe Two Twilight collection to create Bridal Shower Favor Cones. Wouldn’t these be fun to fill with elegant treats for your bridal shower?!
I used the Kelly Creates Wedding Traceable Stamps to create stamped banners for each cone, but you could easily replace the “Bride & Groom” with another sentiment, fill them with flowers and leave them on someone’s front door for May Day!

I love how beautiful and elegant these turned out. They would look gorgeous spread out on a tray for your guests to take home.

So are you ready to try out hand-lettering?! I promise, with the help of the Kelly Creates, you will have beautiful results in no time. Enjoy!

Carta Bella Paper: Door Gift Bag & Card

Have you tried creating a customized gift bag and card? Today I am sharing a set using the beautiful Spring Market collection by Carta Bella Paper.

Jana Eubank Spring Market Door Gift Bag 4 600
The colors and florals in this collection are so beautiful and would be perfect to use for all kinds of springtime occasions. I thought it would be fun to customize a gift bag for Mother’s Day for your mom, sister, or bestie. But it would also be perfect to use for a wedding or baby shower, or even a birthday gift!

All of the flowers and garden tools reminded me of getting outside. One of the first things I like to do in the Spring, is to hang a fresh wreath on my front door and decorate the front porch with pots of flowers. I used my Silhouette Cameo to die cut the door from Kraft Cardstock, and then created a wreath from the Evergreen Shimmer cardstock using the Spring Greenery Die Set.

A watering can, flowers, and more die cut greenery decorate the steps of the porch on this gift bag!

I couldn’t stop there! I couldn’t resist cutting out one of the darling tags from the Floral Tags paper to add to the top of the gift bag.

It’s fun to create a coordinating card to go along with your decorated gift bag. I cut a quote from one of the 6×6 pattern papers and added it to the die cut frame.

A flower pot die cut and more greenery ties it all back to the gift bag for a coordinated look!
