Scrapbook Page: Happy Campers

Oh. My. Goodness. Have you seen the Stampin’ Up Pick a Pattern papers? I love the handdrawn feel of all of the patterns and couldn’t wait to play with them on this scrapbook page today.

HAPPY CAMPERS

This includes some older photos that I skipped past the first time I documented this trip. I can’t believe how much my daughters and her cousins have grown. I just HAD to include this photo in our books!

Jana Eubank Stampin Up Pick a Pattern Happy Campers Scrapbook Page 1 600

The first thing I did was create my title using the Happy Celebrations Stamps (Happy) and Hand Lettered Alphabet Stamps (Campers). I layered together two different pink markers to make sure I got the exact shade of pink I was looking for! The “campers” word was stamped using Emerald Envy Stampin’ Up ink.

I cut out the polaroid photos and cameras from one of the Pick a Pattern papers to use as page accents. I then clustered a couple of stamped phrases (Text Ya Later Stamp Set) and some hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes around them.

I LOVE using a pinked circle shape layered up behind plain punched circles. The new Starburst Punch was a must-have to add to my stash! (Phrase from the Watercolor Wings Stamp Set)

I used an older background stamp (Writing Notes 139864) to create my journaling block. I added more handcut cameras, metallic enamel hearts, and anchored everything on that adorable yellow/black striped paper.

I wanted the camping paper to POP a bit more, so I used the Ticket Tear Border to add punched borders across the top and bottom of the paper block.

I used a black journaling pen to outline all of the paper layers so that they matched the look of the doodled patterns.

I then added more stamped phrases to the camera cluster at the bottom. The “So Glad We Are Friends” is from the You’re Delightful Stamp Set, and the “You’re the Best” phrase is from the Text Ya Later Stamp Set.

I used the AWESOME Classic Label Punch to create all the labels for the phrases on this page. To dovetail the ends (instead of leaving them pointed), simply flip the punched piece around and notch the ends with the punch again!

Scrapbook Page: Capture Life

We are in the last few days of summer and the kids are trying to soak up every minute while they still can. Thankfully, we are finished with all of the school shopping, so they are spending their days hanging with friends and enjoying their last few days of freedom  and a structure-free schedule.

While they have been playing … I have been playing, too! I’ve been creating some things for design teams that I will be sharing with you soon … but I have also been doing some “catch up” projects on my own.

Today’s page features a photo that I randomly snapped SEVEN years ago. I normally would pass by a snapshot like this … but I think with time, it has become more important to me. It’s a snapshot of my daughter at a church activity when she was 12 years old. All of these girls have moved on to bigger life things … some of the older girls are even married and pregnant! … and that is why it has become more special to me. It’s a snapshot in time that proves how fleeting the days can be!

CAPTURE LIFE

Jana Eubank Echo Park A Perfect Autumn Capture Life Layout 1

I used the new Echo Park Paper “A Perfect Autumn” collection for this one. I began by building a pieced background … kind of like a cozy quilt … with machine stitching here-and-there.

At the top of my photo, I created my own tabs using the Stampin’ Up Circle Tab Punch and Tabs for Everything Stamp Set. The circle on the tab was punched with a 3/4″ circle punch.

I love the words and icons included with the stamp set. Here, I chose to decorate one with a simple heart and the word “remember.” On the other tab, I placed one of the A Perfect Autumn decorative brads.

In the upper left corner of the page, I placed a chipboard tag tied with white twine and accented with a couple of stickers and decorative brads.

The title was cut from the Yellow/Teal Coordinating Solid Paper with my Silhouette Cameo machine and the “Capture Life – Handwritten Phrase” cut file by Kolette Hall (Design #60843 from the Silhouette Design Store).

Next, I created a cute little scene with the Element Stickers, Frames & Tags Ephemera, and Decorative Brads at the bottom. How darling is that sweet fox?! I just love his swishy tail!

While I will miss my kids when they go back to school next week, working on this page made me excited to get in my scrapbook room again and work on documenting our family memories! I’m especially wanting to spend some time filling in the “holes” in our albums by seeking out the pictures and stories I may have passed by the “first time around.”

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Stampin’ Up: Carols of Christmas

Are you itching to get ahead on your Christmas cards before the busy fall season sets in? Check out the Carols of Christmas products by Stampin’ Up. This is an early release from their upcoming Holiday Catalog and they graciously sent me a set to play with. Squeal!!!

CM100090B

Here are a few cards I came up with using the Carols of Christmas Bundle (Clear Stamps and Die Set). (They can also be purchased separately HERE.)

……………………………………..

Deck the Halls with Poinsettias Card

For this card, I used the frame builder die on the white card base. I then backed the openings with green, red, and navy cardstock. Next, I cut a rectangle from the Echo Park Paper Deck the Halls 6×6 Paper Pad to place in the center of the card, and the proceeded to build up my design from there.

I used the Banner Triple punch (one of my favorite punches EVER!) to create the layered banners behind the circle sentiment. The sentiment is stamped in red (from my stash) and Emerald Envy Ink. I then added a couple of clusters of the stamped poinsettias in the same inks as accents. The flowers get a touch of sparkle with rhinestone centers.

Peace on Earth Card

I couldn’t resist using the night sky die cut across the top of this card. I used Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock for the background of the card, backing the moon and stars with a scrap of glitter paper from my stash.

The sentiment is stamped with Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron Inks by Stampin’ Up. I then hand cut a few snowy hills and a winter pine tree (Carols of Christmas Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies).

I added a few gems from my stash to over the circular stars, embellishments for the sentiment, and as accents around the deer at the bottom of the card.

Deck the Halls Ornament Card

This last card was a lot of fun! I began by stamping the ornaments across the top of the card front using Crumb Cake Ink. I then stamped  the ornaments on a scrap piece of paper in Night of Navy, Emerald Envy, and red inks.

After cutting the ornaments out with the coordinating die, I added them to the card with thin foam squares. I then stamped some sparkles around the ornaments with Mint Macaron ink.

I stamped the sentiment in both Emerald Envy and red inks and then used fine detail scissors to cut out each word. I then popped the phrase up on thin foam squares on a strip of Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock (Carta Bella Paper), accenting the top and bottom of the Navy strip with Scarlet Red Felt Designer Cardstock (Carta Bella Paper). The striped strip of patterned paper at the bottom of the card is again from the Deck the Halls 6×6 Paper Pad by Echo Park Paper.

Stampin’ Up: Eastern Palace Suite

Stampin’ Up has a new suite of products available called Eastern Palace, and from May 1st through 31st you can purchase them in two great bundles; a Starter Bundle and the Premiere Bundle.

Stampin’ Up was kind enough to send me a Premiere Bundle to play with. Here is a peek at what is included.

I’m loving the rich colors and patterns and found them perfect for a couple of masculine layouts I wanted to create about my son. I thought I would share those with you today!

BRACES

I had so much fun using the papers stamps and dies on this page!

My favorite part of creating this layout was definitely working on this panel of accents. I used the dies and stamps to create multiple medallions and then arranged them in a diamond pattern above my title. I used foam squares to pop up the embellishments for lots of dimension and then added a few pearls from my stash to accent the center of each one.

The title was created with another set by Stampin’ Up called Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set. I used the Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide inks to create the letters.

I also added a few leafy branches from the Crazy About You Stamp Set. I used the Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist inks. The script words come from the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set.

Here is one more angled look at the layout so you can see all of the delicious dimension on this one! 😀

OWEN’S BAPTISM DAY

For this second page, I cut the background paper in a classic artisan label shape.

I used the dies and stamps with the Tranquil Tide ink to create the medallion accents. I simply used a 3″ circle punch to punch around the circular die shape and then added them to my page.

I used the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set again on this page to create my title. This time, I used the circular shape randomly behind the letters to add interest, and then cut around the title with a pair of fine-tipped scissors.

At the bottom right of my photos, I used the stamps and dies to create two more page accents. I loved layering the pieces up on one another using foam squares to give it lots of dimension, like I did on the previous page.

If you are always on the look out for papers with a rich or masculine feel to them, this may very well be the set for you! I think it would be perfect to use for Father’s Day projects, or even something for a wedding! Be sure to check it out!

Happy Creating!
