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!

CATCH & RELEASE

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!

OUR TRIP

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.

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Our Trip 2 600

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!)

Two-Page Layout: So Very Thankful

This month the Simple Stories design team was invited to participate in the monthly sketch release over at PageMaps.

I adore PageMaps and jumped at the chance to work with one of Becky Fleck’s amazing two-page sketches! I created the layout below using the Simple Stories Happy Harvest Simple Set.

SO VERY THANKFUL

Jana Eubank PageMaps Simple Stories Happy Harvest So Very Thankful Scrapbook Page 1 600

Here is a closer look at the the left side of the spread.

Jana Eubank PageMaps Simple Stories Happy Harvest So Very Thankful Scrapbook Page 2 600

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out a title for my page and then added a pair of fox heads across the top to represent family. The larger fox was cut from one of the journaling cards and the smaller one is from the sticker sheet.

Jana Eubank PageMaps Simple Stories Happy Harvest So Very Thankful Scrapbook Page 4 600

I cut the title out multiple times, trimmed away the word “very” and ran it through the Tiny Dots embossing folder (Kaiser Craft). That bit of texture adds a lot to this part of the page.

Jana Eubank PageMaps Simple Stories Happy Harvest So Very Thankful Scrapbook Page 5 600

I cut out the group of pumpkins from another one of the journaling cards and layered several stickers around it.

More stickers adorn the right side of the page.

Jana Eubank PageMaps Simple Stories Happy Harvest So Very Thankful Scrapbook Page 3 600

One of the 4×6 cut apart cards holds my journaling. I added more stickers at the top and a punched tab at the bottom stamped with the date.

Zig Zag stitching across the width of both pages, ties them together. I LOVE that woodgrain paper. It grounds the photos and feels perfectly “fall.”

Jana Eubank PageMaps Simple Stories Happy Harvest So Very Thankful Scrapbook Page 7 600

I cut out the pumpkin from the journaling cards paper and added more stickers to the right of it to create another embellishment cluster. The shiny gold circle stickers are from my favorite Stampin’ Up Metallic Enamel Stickers. The gold color has a nice sunny, warm feeling to them … a nice change of pace from the silver tone you usually see in shiny stickers.

Carta Bella Paper: Baby Sleeping Door Hanger

Hello, Friends! I remember being a young mother and the struggle it was to get a baby or toddler to sleep. The last thing I wanted was a package delivery person to ring the doorbell and undo all of my hard work. Haha! Today’s project will solve that problem for you! It is a Baby Sleeping Door Hanger! Simply hang it on your doorknob when your child is sleeping and visitors will know to knock, instead of pressing the doorbell.

BABY SLEEPING DOOR HANGER

Jana Eubank Rock A Bye Boy Door Hanger 1 600

I cut the door hanger shape out using my Silhouette Cameo machine and then decorated it with the ADORABLE Carta Bella Paper Rock-A-Bye Boy collection. (To see a short video of this doorhanger coming together, check out the Echo Park Instagram account HERE.)

I cut out the cow from the 4×6 Journaling Card paper and then used the opposite Ledger patterned side for the background.

Jana Eubank Rock A Bye Boy Door Hanger 2 600

The moon was cut from the Fall is in the Air 6×6 paper pad using the Little Star Die Set. I added the Enamel Dots to the stars for a bit of fun! The “Dream Big Little One” banner and “B-A-B-Y” letters are both from the Element Sticker sheet. Everything is anchored on a die cut label (Stitched Label Nesting Die) cut form the Ultra White Felt Cardstock.

For the sentiment, I used the letter stickers from the Happiness is Homemade collection along with die cut letters (Navy Blue Felt Cardstock) using the Lincoln Uppercase Die Set.

Echo Park Paper: Back to School

Get more mileage out of your summer paper collections by using them for projects outside of the season. Today I’m sharing a Back to School layout created with the
Under the Sea collection on the Echo Park Paper blog.
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Under the Sea Back to School Scrapbook Page 1 600
I adore using clever puns and a play on words in my scrapbooking, so when I was challenged with creating a Back to School project I couldn’t help but think of the “school” of fish waiting for me in the Under the Sea collection.
I knew right away that I wanted to incorporate a school of fish in a band surrounding my page title. I used a band of Aquatic Fun Paper to set the scene and then built my title on top of it. I die cut the word “school” using my Silhouette Cameo machine and then used letter stickers (Birthday Wishes – Boy collection) to spell out the rest of the phrase.
Jana Eubank Back to School Scrapbook Page 4 600
I then added several of the fish from the Elements Sticker Sheet all around the title phrase, popping them up with foam squares for a bit of dimension.
Jana Eubank Back to School Scrapbook Page 5 600
I used the pennant stickers from the Sticker Sheet to create a banner across the top … I love how the triangle and half circle pennants fit on top of the coordinating scallop pennants for a layered look!
Jana Eubank Back to School Scrapbook Page 2 600
In the top right corner of my page design I added information about the photo, layering them on top of a couple of die cuts from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack. The cloud die cut mimics the die cut clouds (Under the Weather Metal Die Set) on the other side of the page.
Jana Eubank Back to School Scrapbook Page 3 600
The primary colors of the Under the Sea collection were a perfect for scrapping these photos of my daughter on her first day of 3rd Grade, and the fish were a delightful twist to the typical pencils and crayons you see on Back to School pages. I loved shaking it up a bit this time!

I hope this has inspired you to take a second look at your paper collections to see if you can use a play of words or a clever pun to use them outside of their intended purpose.
