Queen & Company: Birthday Boy

Happy Friday, Friends! Today I have another scrapbook page to share created with the June “Pretty Presents” kit by Queen and Company.

I have so many birthday pages to catch up on, so you can bet that the June Kit is getting a lot of use from me. The problem, for me, is that not all of my birthday event photos are the most beautiful technically. They are usually dark or slightly blurry due to the fact that I am snapping them early in the morning, late at night, or in a hurry. I’m so thankful for happy, bright, and cute birthday products that help to convey the fun of the day. You can see what I mean by checking out the page below.

BIRTHDAY BOY
Jana Eubank Queen and Company Birthday Boy 1 600
Our kids always choose a place to go for their birthday dinner. Without fail, my son always chooses a family fun center … because of the two-for-one factor: dinner and arcade games! The problem is that it is always dark inside of these types of establishments.

I chose to focus on the bright, primary colors of the kit with a red/blue/green/yellow color scheme. I used the 6×6 paper pad to create a color blocked page design and then added the shaker presents to two of the blocks as accents.
I also used one of the stamps to add a phrase banner above the bottom present.

I created shakers from the two larger present shapes, and then chose to place a solid piece of paper on top of the small present shape for a flat die cut embellishment. I love the confetti feel of the shaker presents! They really help to add a celebratory flair to this page!

I used a large circle punch and the 6×6 paper pad to add a trio of circles, around the three areas of embellishment on this page: the title. the journaling, and the accent square. This keeps your eye moving around the page.
I really loved the way these papers brightened up my otherwise dark and dull birthday photos. It helped to punch up the design and memorialize my son’s special day.

Queen & Co: Baptism Dress

Creating a Soft Tone-on-Tone Textured Look with Flowers

For today’s page, I wanted to use a simple and soft color palette. To keep it from feeling boring, I added in lots of texture with tone-on-tone floral embellishments by Queen & Company.

This page has a monochromatic feel about it, but when you take another look you realize that there is actually quite a bit of color. The colors are softened by all of the white embellishments layered on top of the patterned papers.

At the top of the photos I placed a cluster of Simple Stories Faith stickers anchored by two white doilies. The white Pom flower mimics the softness of the doilies, but the clear Sunflower and white Sparklers, keep things interesting and dimensional.

Next to the title is a large, fussy-cut floral paper piece that I cut from one of the 4×6 Horizontal Cards. I added dimension to the big flower with a button, and red Iridescent Pearls … placing the embellishments right on top of the printed design.

Around the floral piece, I added several white floral embellishments. This helps to make the flowers the focal point for the page and gives this area lots of interest. The white Pom Flowers again give softness, while the white Sparklers and clear Sunflowers give dimension and reflect the light.

Silver Skinny Glitter Tape at the top and bottom of the photo strip catch your eye, leading it through the page from the title and journaling on the left side over to the photos on the right side.

By using tone-on-tone white embellishments throughout the design of this page we are giving the eye a reason to linger. The colors blend with one another, but the varied textures make us pause and take in the details.
Why not give this approach a try on your next page? Use embellishments to give your pre-printed page elements more dimension, and then add more pieces to keep your eye lingering on the textured details.

Today I am featuring the adorable Various patterns of Queen & Co. washi tapes as a main decorative element on my page.
TOMATO PLANT
I love the rainbow of colors available in the washi tapes. I thought it would be fun to use the red and green washi tapes about my daughter and a tomato plant she was given as a gift from a lady in our neighborhood.

I placed a strip of the Green Stripe Washi Tape at the top of the page, overlapping it slightly off the page so that it appears a little more narrow.
I had these fabric tomato stickers in my stash that were perfect to use on this layout, but they needed some fancying up! I added some punched leaves, the adorably fluffy, White Pom Flowers, and Iridescent Red Pearls as accents.

I typed my journaling up on the computer and then placed it inside this bookplate from my stash. the Red Rivets “hold” the bookplate in place.

I wrapped my two photos several times with a length of Red Sparkle String and then tied the string in a bow.
In the bottom right corner of the photos I added more fabric tomato stickers, punched leaves, White Pom Flowers, and Iridescent Red Pearls.

I didn’t have a lot of journaling for this page, so I decided to fill the bottom half of the layout with a fun design element. I used lengths of washi tape in the the way you would use ribbon, threading them through each end of a metal bookplate, folding the end over, and then “anchoring” the washi tape to the bookplate with a red or green rivet. I used mini pinking shears to cut the ends of the washi tape to give it a bit of a torn/jaggedy edge.

I love all of the patterns of the washi tape! It’s my favorite part of this page!

Queen & Company: ZOO Layout

Hello! I’m back again today with another layout using the adorable products from Queen & Company!
We were amazed at the beauty of the St. Louis Zoo when we visited as a family a few years ago. I was so mesmerized by the sights that I ended up only taking two photos!
Never fear! I was still able to scrapbook a page about our fun day by turning those two photos into letters for the title on this next page.
jana-eubank-queen-co-zoo-layout-1-600
I used my die cut machine to cut the letter “Z” from the orange chevron paper of the Picture Perfect Mat Stack, and then wrapped it with a length of green twine. Next, I cut my photos into circles using the Circle Die Set and papers from Picture Perfect and Flirty Florals.
To add a jungle feel, I used the Stampin’ Up Festive Flower Builder Punch to punch leaves from the dark green Around the Park paper, scattering them here and there.
jana-eubank-queen-co-zoo-layout-2-600
I filled the letters with all kinds of fun things: Donut Toppings, Diamond Topping, Sequin Sprinkles, and blue and green stars from the Fimo Fun Topping.
jana-eubank-queen-co-zoo-layout-3-600
My journaling about the day was placed below the title and then I decorated the top and bottom of the page with Green Stripe Trendy Tape, skinny glitter tape, Polka Blue Trendy Tape, and a few orange buttons. White pinwheels and blue petite posies add a bit more detail to the top and bottom corners of the page.

Thanks to the Circle Die Set, I was able to scrapbook this fun day even though I only had two photos to show for it!
