American Crafts: Santa Tracker Globe

Christmas is such a magical time of year. One of my favorite memories of when my children were young was the excitement they had of hopping on the computer and tracking Santa’s whereabouts on the night of Christmas Eve. The anticipation was palpable! Well, now you can incorporate the fun of tracking Santa into your home decor with the One Canoe Two Santa Tracker Globe by American Crafts.
The Santa Tracker globe includes a Santa sleigh wood piece with a magnet on the back and several adhesive magnetic dot stickers to adhere to the surface of your globe.
I did not want the magnetic dots to show, so I opted to purchase thicker magnets and hot glue them to the inside of the globe. The stronger magnets penetrate the thickness of the globe wall and allow you to place the Santa sleigh piece in the places you have a magnet adhered to the inside.
I used the shiny, gold foil star stickers from the Shimelle Sticker Book to mark the location of the magnets on the surface of the globe. The stars add a festive flair to this fun decor piece!
Next, I added die cut poinsettia flowers (Lettering Delights) and greenery to the globe using American Crafts Textured cardstock. (Pine Branches created with the Stampin’ Up Pretty Pines Thinlit Die Set; Branches created using the Echo Park Be Merry Branch Die Set) I also added a ribbon tied in a knot around the base of the globe.
I can’t wait to add this globe to my Christmas decor! And I know my kids will have fun tracking Santa until the big day arrives.

Working with a Homemade Kit featuring Shimelle Go Now Go

I’m not sure if it is the beginning of a new school year, but I have been itching to play with some paper collections I purchased awhile ago and haven’t made the time to use. I decided to put together some homemade kits with those products and work on creating at least two projects with them to share with you throughout the end of the year. My stash needs some love!

This week the kit I put together has lots of Shimelle Go Now Go. I was able to create four projects (Yay, Me!!!) with this kit and wanted to share them with you today and tomorrow.


First up … a two-page layout!


I was in the mood to play with some cute cut files by Lettering Delights on this one. So that is what I did. The images featured on this page are from the “Happy Trails Too” set.

**SIDENOTE: I really struggled to get the colors just right on these pictures … so I hope you’ll bear with me!

Added into the mix are some older Pebbles stickers … I believe these ones were from the Walnut Grove collection.

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 Machine to cut out the “Catch” letters (Font: Bebas Neue) and the Ampersand (“St. Patrick’s Day Set” by Echo Park Paper; Design #122732 in the Silhouette Design Store).

Those cute chipboard letter stickers are an older set from Bella Blvd.

It’s been awhile since I have played with my beloved embossing folders, so I used one here to add pattern to the light green pine tree.

The other side of the layout features this chubby bear; fishing for his dinner! Haha!

These photos were taken on the way home from a long family vacation. The kids were tired and, while we had a blast on this trip, we were all ready to get back home. Our fun had officially worn us out!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 1 600

I used the Shimelle Go Now Go “Fly” paper for the background of this page, and then clustered my photos together on vertical strips.

At the top of the photos, I layered together several of the Go Now Go Chipboard stickers with one of the Wooden Buttons … of course I had to use the heart to go with the “I Left My Heart in Nauvoo,” right?! I also added in a couple of red gem hearts for good measure!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 3 600

More gem hearts and another wooden button accents these chipboard stickers. I had to add a little sarcasm to this page with the “Happy Travels” chipboard sticker … because you can clearly see that Camryn was DONE. Done, and ready to be finished with this flying home thing! Haha!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 4 600

I used the chipboard letter stickers again on this page for the title, clustering more stickers around it to give it some personality!

The “adventure” acrylic piece is available at Freckled Fawn. (I LOVE the handwritten script of this piece … it was created by talented friend, Crafty Jen Schow!)

Queen & Co: Hello Cutie Layout

My first Queen & Co. project is up on the Queen & Co. Blog! With three daughters in my home, I knew the Queen & Co. Heart Throb kit would be the perfect fit for creating something about my girls.
I selected these photos of my daughter on her birthday last year and used her shirt as inspiration for my title. I used the acrylic “hello” script word from the kit along with letters I cut (using the ZP Periwinkle font by Lettering Delights) from glitter paper using my electronic die cut machine.
I cut the 6×6 papers into strips and then adhered them to the page side by side, disguising the seams behind my photos. The horizontal bands help give the photos a place to “rest.”
I typed my journaling on a journal card that I pulled from my stash. Here is a closer look at what it says.
My favorite part of this page is at the bottom where I had fun playing with the shaker elements of the kit. I die cut the bottom heart from pink cardstock (border) and the blue/white striped paper (insert) from the 6×6 Heart Throb paper pad.
Next, I created a dimensional shaker heart, using the gray floral paper for the background, and pink glitter paper for the border. Inside I added the large pink sequins, small white sequins, the dark pink heart toppings, the blue floral toppings, and a sprinkle of the new diamond topping. You always need to add a little sparkle and shine to a girl’s page, right?!
I added the “Love You Forever” sentiment sticker across the top of the heart with foam squares. The page is finished off with a sprinkling of heart sequins and enamel dots around the hearts and title. So cute!

2017: A Fun Year Ahead!

I’ve been a little slow-and-go on the blogging this past month while working on some personal project and creating samples for the Creativation trade show last month. (I’ll be sharing these projects soon!)
I’m thrilled to be able to announce that I will be joining the Queen and Company Design Team for 2017!!! I feel so honored to work alongside so many talented designers with products I love!
I’m also humbled and jumping-for-joy that I have been invited to stay on for another year with the Echo Park Paper/Carta Bella Paper Design Team!!!  I feel so lucky to be able to work with such INCREDIBLE companies in the industry!
Today I happen to be up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with my first 2017 Design Team assignment …  a Goals page featuring the Everyday Memories Mini Theme by Echo Park Paper.
This year, I wanted to create a page featuring my goals for 2017. I loved the calendar paper included in the Everyday Memories Mini Theme, and knew it would make the perfect background for this page!
I created the year in my title by using the numbers from the Days of the Month paper. I trimmed them in narrow blocks and then added a mini staple to the top of each one. I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to die cut the word “goals.” The font is such a pretty one! It is the ZP New Years Font from Lettering
The clock, camera, and “Notes” card were hand-trimmed from the Journaling Cards paper. I used the solid colors of other journaling cards and the leaves from the Flower #4 Die Set to cut out the leaves.
I then used my computer to print my journaling in strips. A cluster of sticker elements in the top right corner points to the journaling.
I added the photo to one of the 4×6 Cards from the Journaling Cards paper. I left the bottom edge longer so that it resembles an instant photo. At the top and bottom I added stickers, and a couple of paper clips.
Documenting my goals with a layout helps me to internalize and focus on my plans. It would be fun to create another page at the end of the year reflecting on what has happened and how I felt about the efforts I had made towards the goals I set at the beginning of the year.
Do you document your New Year’s resolutions in your scrapbooks? Give it a try!
