Echo Park Paper: Christmas Card

I love card designs that are different from the standard folded card base. Today’s project features a tag tucked inside of a pocket that would make a fun invitation to a holiday party, or an interactive Christmas Card with your family’s photo and sentiment tucked inside. Let’s take a closer look!

I created this project using Echo Park Paper’s ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas collection. (Be sure to take notice of all of the GORGEOUS hand-painted artwork in both Volume I and Volume II of this collection!)

The tag was cut with my Silhouette Cameo machine from the Dark Red/Cream Solid Cardstock using the “3 Tags” cut file by Lori Whitlock (Design #46903 in the Silhouette Design Store). The top of the tag is adorned with a wreath die cut and a “Merry Christmas” sticker banner.

The pocket for the tag was cut using the Christmas Time Paper (How cute is that Christmas plaid?!) and the “Library Pocket” cut file by Silhouette (Design #4301 in the Silhouette Design Store). I added some manually die cut branches to the front using the A Perfect Christmas Be Merry Branch Die Set and the Classic Green Felt Cardstock before adding the other elements.

Echo Park Paper: Pumpkin Muffin Tote

Happy Fall, friends! The minute the weather turns cool my family and I start craving pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. We always make several batches; some of the batches are for us to eat, but then we also like to make additional batches to take to our friends in the neighborhood.

This year I used the A Perfect Autumn collection by Echo Park Paper to create a darling tote to package up our muffins. The tote fits 9 muffins stacked in three rows inside a cellophane bag perfectly, and is sooo much cuter than a zip-top bag!

I created a tag for this bag by trimming one of the 3×4 Journaling Cards to a smaller size. I then notched the top two corners to create a tag shape.

These would be so easy to make ahead of time to have on hand. I used three different patterned papers for my totes and then used the Leaves & Acorn Die Set and the Carta Bella Hello Fall Layered Pumpkin Die Set to decorate the front.

I varied each bag a bit by using different tags and elements to accent the die cut pumpkins and leaves. On the polka dotted bag, I fussy-cut the word “FALL” from one of the 3×4 cut apart Journaling Cards.

Next, I added the squirrel and leaf sticker from the Element Stickers. I used a small chipboard circle with an acorn to accent the squirrel and added a sprinkling of brads above his head for some dimension.

The orange gingham bag is decorated with several more Element Stickers clustered together. I then added the Fox tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the handle.

American Crafts: BOOtiful Night Week!

Hello, friends! It’s BOOtiful Night week on the American Crafts blog and I am kicking it off with my first project on the design team by sharing a fun Treat Box project!

First of all, a HUGE, WARM THANK YOU!!! to everyone for celebrating the American Crafts design team along with me! I received so many warm wishes on Facebook, Instagram, and my blog … it meant so much to me and made a busy week that much sweeter! I didn’t have the chance to thank each one of you with a response … but please know that you are a bright spot in my life! You are the BEST!!!

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut out milk carton treat boxes from American Crafts Black Textured cardstock, and then had fun decorating them with the 6×6 papers and stickers from the BOOtiful Night collection.

The sketchy feel of the artwork in this collection is a lot of fun, and I completely adore the holographic foil accents on some of the pieces. It’s really different! Here is a closer look!

Bootiful-Night-American-Crafts-Milk-Carton-Jana-Eubank-2-600Bootiful-Night-American-Crafts-Milk-Carton-Jana-Eubank-3-600

The holographic foil almost reminds me of the fun glow-in-the-dark novelty toys you see around Halloween with it’s blue/green iridescence. So cool!

Here is a closer look at each individual box.

The cut file I used for these boxes is the “Milk Carton Favor Box with Handle” by Lori Whitlock (Design #138116 in the Silhouette Design Store). The finished box measures 4.75″ tall, 2.5″ wide, and 2.5″ deep … not too small and not too big. They are the perfect size for filling with a couple of large scoops of your Halloween candy.

I’m going to give these to each of my four kids, but I think they would be the perfect size for giving a little treat to friends or co-workers. Wouldn’t it be delightful to find one waiting for you on your desk? 🙂

I wanted each box to be unique, so I used a variety of 6×6 papers and stickers from the collection. The headstone and tag on this box were cut from one of the cut apart sheets of the 6×6 paper pad. I then added the puffy jack-o-lantern stickers and a Halloween wood button for dimension.

It’s hard to tell from this photo, but the skeleton is printed with the holographic foil. He’s so cute with that little bow around his neck! I cut a section from a silver, spiderweb doily to place behind the BOO sticker. Doesn’t the wood button at the bottom look like a spooky eyeball?! Haha! Love it!

Bootiful-Night-American-Crafts-Milk-Carton-Jana-Eubank-6-600

This box featured a scary witch. She reminds me of the witch from The Wizard of Oz with her green face! I thought the black cat Halloween adhesive badge at the top of the box would make a perfect friend for her!

Bootiful-Night-American-Crafts-Milk-Carton-Jana-Eubank-7-600

This black cat is on the prowl in the graveyard on this box. I cut the headstone from a paper in the 6×6 paper pad again on this box. I also added another section of the silver spiderweb doily behind the sentiment sticker and Halloween spider badge.

I can’t wait to fill these up with some goodies! I think they turned out so cute!

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!)
