Carta Bella Paper: Pack Your Bags for Portland

This year for our summer vacation my family spent a week in a beach house in Oregon. It was absolutely amazing. The first night we arrived we took in the sights and sounds of Portland before making the drive out to the coast. We ate at an amazing restaurant and I couldn’t wait to get home and scrapbook about it using the new Pack Your Bags collection.

I was so happy to see a tag on the Hello World Paper that included the Portland airport. Of course I had to include it at the top of my page!

Because this was the day of our arrival, I used the airplane sticker to create a little scene at the top of the page. The clouds were cut from a paper in the 6×6 paper pad.

It was raining in Portland as we were exploring the city (no surprise there, ha! ha!). I represented the rain on this page by creating  the blue textured background with the Destination Stripe 6×6 Stencil and some texture paste (tinted blue with spray mist) on the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock. I love the way it looks!
I stacked together several suitcase stickers to accent my page title of “Discover Portland.” The “discover” word is from the Escape Word Die Set. The “Portland” letters were cut from a red paper of the 6×6 paper pad using the Script Alphabet Die Set.

The patterned border strips and pink paper below the title are also from the 6×6 paper pad. I added my typed journaling strips to the pink paper and then accented the bottom right corner of the page with several stickers layered on top of the red/white ticket from the Ephemera pack.

Echo Park Paper: Back to School

I love the fall and everything that goes with it … including Back to School! The minute the notebooks and crayons hit the store shelves I get giddy! In addition to collecting office supplies this time of year, I also love to stock up on school-themed scrapbook supplies like the new Echo Park Paper Back to School collection! Swoon!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Back To School Layout 1 600
I have school albums for each of my kids with a tabbed section for each grade. At the beginning of the section I always place a page featuring the pictures we take on the first day of school.

I grouped the close-up shots for this page on a block of black and white composition book patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad. A strip featuring lots of school words from the Border Strips paper runs down the left side of the page.

I used a notebook patterned card from my stash for the journaling and then grouped all of the school supplies stickers at the bottom. Of course I had to add a paper clip!

I cut the title out on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the Ebony Black Felt Cardstock. I love how dark the black of this cardstock is. It makes such crisp, beautiful images on a page. The title is backed with a large circle cut using a wood pattern from the 6×6 paper pad.
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Back To School Layout 5 600
I used the Prize Ribbon Die Set, to add the grade level to the bottom right corner of the larger photo. I layered together two of each of the pinked circles and ribbon tails for more dimension and interest. I used the star from the die set to add bright, yellow stars around the page.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I inspired you to create a fun page for your children’s school album.

Simple Stories: Patriotic Picnic

Happy Fourth of July! I’m up on the Simple Stories Blog today sharing a patriotic page and a design inspired by a patterned paper from the Simple Stories Hometown USA collection.
I was inspired by the quilt-like pattern of the All American paper and thought it would be fun to create a large pieced star on my page with a similar look and feel.

Take a look at my page below!
Jana Eubank Simple Stories Hometown USA Patriotic Picnic Layout 1 600
I cut the geometric star (“Geometric Star” by Sarah Hurley #191599) with my Silhouette Cameo machine and then backed each section with the various patterned papers of the Hometown USA collection. I even utilized the red/white striped and plaid patterns of the  cut apart cards of the Elements paper.
Next, I created my own star from two shades of blue cardstock to layer on top. I used the two shades of cardstock to give it a dimensional look, sort of like a dimensional barn star. I then added two more die cut stars cut from navy cardstock and red glitter cardstock to the center to finish it off.
Jana Eubank Simple Stories Hometown USA Patriotic Picnic Layout 4 600
I used the Echo Park Milo Uppercase Alphabet die and Carta Bella Picnic die to create the title from navy and red glitter cardstock. I love the picnic elements included on the 6×12 Sticker sheet because they were perfect to emphasize the topic of my page … our family’s patriotic picnic!
The new “It’s a Date” stamps are perfect for adding the date to your scrapbook pages, like I did here.
Jana Eubank Simple Stories Hometown USA Patriotic Picnic Layout 3 600
I placed my photos on top of one another to the right of the star and then accented them with more of the adorable stickers from the 6×12 Sticker Sheet. I especially love the bike and those festive balloons!
Jana Eubank Simple Stories Hometown USA Patriotic Picnic Layout 5 600
The page was feeling visually heavy on the right side, so to balance it out I mimicked the three photos by lining up three of the square stickers from the sticker sheet in the top left corner of the page. I matted a couple of them with navy cardstock to tie them in with the navy cardstock of the large star.

Celebrating the Fourth of July is one of my favorite things about summer! I love getting together with family, laughing, watching parades, oohing and ahhing over the fireworks, and eating good food.
How do you celebrate the holiday? Have you scrapbooked it? If not, be sure to take photos of your favorite things about your celebration and make a page to document your traditions. You will be so glad that you did!

July 2018 PageMaps Sketches!

Happy July and Happy Sunday! It’s a new month … so you know what that mean! NEW sketches are up on the PageMaps site. YAY!!!

Becky Fleck’s sketches always get my creative juices flowing and are the perfect way to dig into my stash. Here are three pages I created with this month’s sketches so far.

YOU GO GIRL

I purchased several pieces from the Pebbles Girl Squad collection and hadn’t yet touched it. The funky vibe of these papers were perfect for these photos of my daughter and her brightly colored Crazy Hair Day hairstyle.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 You Go Girl 1 600

I seem to almost always use blue or aqua on my pages … especially for the background. I love this Happy Day paper with its fun, scripty words.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 You Go Girl 5 600

I mirrored the sketch for this page because of the direction my daughter was facing in the photos. This way, she is looking towards the title and journaling, directing your eye across the page.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 You Go Girl 2 600

I seem to go through phases of typed journaling and handwritten journaling. Right now, I am doing a lot of handwritten journaling with sketchy journaling lines. I think this looks best with this paper line with it’s casual, fun feel. But if I’m using a more sophisticated paper line, I would probably go with typed journaling since my handwriting has more of a playful feeling about it.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 You Go Girl 3 600

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the phrase Thickers from this collection! Isn’t the script SCRUMPTIOUS?!!! I fussy cut the girls from the Hello Friends paper, as well as the “Smile” speech bubble to accent the title.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 You Go Girl 4 600

The stickers for this collection are really fun, too! I couldn’t resist adding the guitar and the flower cluster. The white around the flowers was a bit too thick for my liking, so I quickly trimmed it down with my scissors and then added more flowers and leaves to fill it out.

ROUND 2: BRAVE

This next page uses the same sketch as above, but in the original format (without mirroring). I pulled lots of items from my stash for this one … some of them are REALLY old, but I still love them and they worked perfectly here!

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Brave 1 600

See those chipboard pieces? Those are from the Echo Park Happy Days collection. Not sure of the year, but I love the layered chipboard! I think BoBunny does layered chipboard pieces like that still, but it would be fun to see a few more companies revisit layered chipboard again.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Brave 2 600

The roses here are also from the Echo Park Paper Happy Days collection. I also added in a few black chipboard word stickers by Me and My Big Ideas. I splattered a bit of Heidi Swapp Black Velvet Color Shine to punch up the black a bit more.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Brave 3 600

I called this page “Round 2: Brave” because this was the SECOND time my daughter has had her ears pierced. She wasn’t very good at taking care of them the first time around, letting them grow back in. She begged and begged to have them pierced again, which was fine with me, as long as she used her own money to pay for it this time, and also promised to take care of them.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Brave 4 600

Again, I used an aqua blue background for this page. The papers on this page are from the darling PhotoPlay Paper For the Love of Summer collection. The rainbow paper is called Flip Out, and the dot paper is called So Chill.

SWEET GIRL

While I had the sketches and Girl Squad collection out on my desk, I decided to create another page. This time with a selfie shot my daughter took on my phone on our way to church one day.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 1 600

I’m a bit shocked at myself … I didn’t use an aqua blue background on this page!!! Infact, I did a fun and funky combination of the patterns I had left. I like it, but can’t decide if it’s a bit TOO funky for my taste. Haha!

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 6 600

In place of the three square photos to the left of the main photo in the sketch, I used three square accents cut from the Hello Friends paper. The circle above with the Title is cut from white vellum paper.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 2 600

I found these adorable metal enamel-filled hearts in my stash that I purchased from Freckled Fawn several years ago. They were the perfect dimensional detail for this page.

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 3 600

I clustered the Cardstock stickers together in several places, adding in a few dimensional stickers from my stash that I got from HSN.com once upon a time. The yellow glittery dots in the center of the flowers are stickers I picked up at the Dollar Tree several years ago … I never thought to use them as flower centers, but I will more often, now that it crossed my mind creating this page!

Jana Eubank PageMaps July 2018 Sweet Girl 4 600

Again, I used my handwriting on this page and added a Teresa Collins Black label sticker at the bottom with the date.
