Using a Favorite Page Design Twice

Have you ever had so much fun creating a page that you wouldn’t mind making it again? Well, I say, go for it!

For example, last fall I submitted the following page to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. They liked the page, but asked if I could recreate it in a two-page format for their readers. I did exactly that, with different photos, and now I have two pages finished in my albums.

SCHOOL DAYS

And here is quick snapshot of the two-pager …

JanaEubank_SchoolDaysTwoPage_Snapshot

The photos are from different years, so they won’t be right next to each other in our albums. I’m willing to bet that someone looking through our albums, including my kids and husband, will be none the wiser! It feels great to “kill two birds with one stone,” so to speak, and complete two great layouts for our books.

Have you tried this approach on any of your pages? This same thought process would also be a great way to convert one page sketches to two-page sketches when you are looking for inspiration.

Give it a go and let me know what you think!

Have a great week!

Queen & Co: Magic & Birthday Layouts

Hi Guys! I’m up on the Queen & Company blog today with two projects!
One of our favorite places to go on vacation, like a lot of families, is Disneyland. The first time my daughter met the characters was completely magical. At the time she was shy around most adults, so it amazed us when she wasn’t afraid to meet her favorite characters.

At the top of the page, I used the Magic Shaker Kit to create Mickey and Minnie mouse symbols. I cut them from black glitter cardstock and then backed them with red and yellow Delightful Dots papers. I filled the inside of the shapes with white Lollies, red and yellow buttons, red diamond topping, and black fimo fun stars. I added a red ribbon to the top of Minnie’s ears and adorned the bottom of the iconic shapes with blue flowers and a magic flair button.

The title was cut on my electronic die cutting machien from the Simple Stripes yellow paper. I added more flair and blue flowers to the title, as well. A few yellow pinwheels feel like pixie dust!

I cut the tickets from the Around the Park Mat Stack and tied them with Red Sparkle String. To the right of the tickets is a shaker Mickey glove. More pinwheels, flair, and flowers add lots of dimension and fun to this part of the page, as well.

Across the bottom of the page the photos rest on strips of patterned papers from the Around the Park Mat Stack, combined with some Magical Tape. Red and black rivets adorn each end of these decorative paper strips.

Sometimes it is hard to catch the excitement of a birthday celebration on a scrapbook page. Not any more! With the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set you can practically taste the sprinkles that are decorating the inside of this cake embellishment!

One of my favorite little details to add to titles is to replace the dot in the letter “i” with something decorative. Here I added a tiny blue petite posie.
There was an empty spot at the top of my page above the title. I simply filled it in with a strip of orange Simply Stripes Mat Stack paper, decorating the end with two green rivets.

Green twine and orange sparkle string dress up my photos, while a sprinkling of petite posies and pinwheels add a party feel to the right side of the page.

My favorite part of this page looks good enough to eat! Check out the slice of cake I created with the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set!
I cut the cake shape from blue and brown cardstock. I used scissors to trim out the “inside” of the cake … leaving just the frosting … and then adhered that frosting layer on top of the brown “chocolate” cake layer. I used a couple of Pom Flowers to the top of the cake for decoration.
Inside the cake are yellow, blue, and orange candy sprinkles toppings that look good enough to eat!

A few more yellow pinwheels and petite posies scattered around the cake add a fun feel.

Valentine’s Day Silhouette Projects

Happy Valentine’s Day to you! It’s the day of hugs and kisses and I have a couple of lovey-dovey projects to share with you using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

LOVE FRAME

This first project is just a sweet little home decor item that you can create to brighten up a corner of your home, or as a gift for a friend to display in their home.

I cut out the heart puzzle images on several 6×6 patterned papers from the Carta Bella It’s a Girl collection. I also added an offset white cardstock layer underneath to help them POP a bit. They are adhered to the background paper with thin foam squares.

I then added the script “love” word on top, and adorned the corners with a pretty floral image.

I WHALEY LOVE YOU Gift Box & Card

Isn’t this little whale favor box adorable?!! He was pretty easy to put together. You can find him in the Silhouette Store. I added some hearts on thin wires as his water spout for a Valentine touch.

A sweet little Whale card to accompany him was the perfect touch! I cut the sentiment out of black vinyl to make adhering the sentiment easy-peasy.

He opens up so you can place a yummy treat inside!

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.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-1-600
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.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-2-600
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.
jana-eubank-queen-co-heart-throb-kit-hello-cutie-layout-3-600
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!
