CardMaps: Flamingo Card

Did you know that you can also find card sketches at PageMaps.com?! Yes, it’s true! They come out quarterly for your card making inspiration.

I pulled out my metal dies and created this summery flamingo card using one of the sketches. Check it out!

I used an American Crafts 6×6 paper pad that I picked up at Target or their warehouse sale (one of the two), that has been hanging out in my stash for ages. The colors were perfect to use with the adorable Echo Park Paper Pink Flamingo Die Set.

I also couldn’t resist adding in a few Tropical Palms die cuts.  The speech bubble sentiment was created with the Text Me Die Set.

See those darling pink, felt flowers? Those are some oldies-but-goodies by Jenni Bowlin. They worked great here. I added velvet green ribbon in the top of the tag to repeat the fuzzy texture of the pink flowers at the top of the card.

Stashbusting: Adore

Hello! Today I have a stashbusting scrapbook page to share!

I always pick my best-looking photos for design team assignments … but I have a LOT of memories that keep getting ignored, simply because the photos I have of them are less than stellar. Time to give those photos some love, regardless of how “pretty” they are.

ADORE

The starting point for this page was actually a color scheme. I was looking through an interior design magazine online and came across this stark white room with pops of teal and orange and a dark gray couch. It was stunning! I pulled out those colors along with green and gold and got to work creating the following layout.

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Adore 1 600

Confession: I’m not very skilled at coming up with clever titles … or should I say, I’m lazy about coming up with clever titles. Haha! I was just going to call this one “Sunday BBQ” … but then thought to myself … I have so many word embellishments in my stash … I should browse and find one that will work for this page.

So, I pulled out this gray-stained wood word that says, “adore.” I found this at Michael’s a couple years ago in the dollar section. It was actually sold as a magnet, but the crafter in me saw “page embellishment!”

I added a bit of orange grid paper behind the letter “o” and then added a yellow, chipboard arrow (Studio Calico) in the center to point towards my husband.

I have my embellishments stored by color families. As I was browsing through my “Primary” bin, I came across this leftover chipboard city scene from the Shimelle Go Now Go collection. It looks so cute sitting on top of my title! The kite, stars, and clouds above the buildings are vellum stickers from an older Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me Monthly Kit.

I wrote my journaling on a Dear Lizzy tag from my stash and then added more chipboard pieces to the left side. The car is from the same Shimelle Go Now Go chipboard embellishment pack and the arrows are by Studio Calico.

The phrase stickers to the left of the car (across the bottom of the photo) are from the Echo Park Paper Note to Self collection (oldie but goodie!).

Stashbusting

I’ve been on a stashbusting kick lately. My good friend, Jen Schow, has the best post about creating your own scrapbooking kit. I used her list and guidelines to create kits using items from my stash, and these two pages are a result of one of those kits.

HERE & NOW

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Here and Now 1 600

I love this cloud paper by Simple Stories and just HAD to cut them out to use on both of these pages today. For this layout, I outlined them a couple of times in a messy/random way for a more artsy look.

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Here and Now 2 600

I’m having fun layering up papers behind my photos lately … especially on pages with a single photo. The contrast of the black and white patterns and the pops of bright color make my creative heart sing!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Here and Now 3 600

Word stickers make adding a title to a page really easy. I use aqua blue on almost every page I create, but hadn’t put these fun blue phrases to work yet. I love how they look here!

SIDEWALK CHALK

This page is actually a page re-do. The first time I made this layout, I was trying my hand at mixed media for the first time and DID NOT like the result. I know most people would have called it done … but I just KNOW that every time I look at that page as I flip through my books, it will bug me! Hahaha!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Sidewalk Chalk 1 600

I layered up a sun die cut on top of a starburst circle to give the sun a bit more dimension. And again, I used those cute Simple Stories clouds from the Carpe Diem collection. Swoon! They look even cuter with the colorful buttons on top of them. I LOVE me some buttons!

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Sidewalk Chalk 2 600

For the title, I used puffy letter stickers by Bella Blvd. in two colors. There was no rhyme or reason to the way I decided to add in the red letters … I just did what I thought looked good.

Jana Eubank Stashbusting Sidewalk Chalk 3 600

Simple Stories always has the cutest icons and these birds are no exception. They are so cute with the flowers tucked behind their “ear” or ??? sound hole? Or what do you call them … Be right back … Okay, here is what I found … they are called ear coverts. Hmmm! I guess you learn something new every day! (See, honey … scrapbooking is educational, too! *wink*)

Scrapbook Page: Feeling Fancy

My daughters LOVE to go to the hair salon. With three daughters we make an afternoon out of it and schedule all of our hair appointments together at the same time. Camryn is the youngest and has learned to be patient while waiting for the rest of us, but when she was a little younger, she used to entertain herself with a selfie or two on my phone.

Today’s page features one of those cute selfies of herself admiring her new do! 🙂

FEELING FANCY

Jana Eubank Feeling Fancy 1 600

I used a sheet of notebook paper I had in my stash for the base (my LAST sheet of Scenic Route! *sniff, sniff*). I was getting down to scraps of the Little by Little collection at this point, so I had fun layering them up behind my photo.

Jana Eubank Feeling Fancy 2 600

I used a strip of purple Bella Blvd. Easter paper across the top along with the floral border sticker from the Cardstock Stickers Pack.

I thought the Lion was a fun icon to use on this page … since we were getting our “manes” done up that day. Haha!

Jana Eubank Feeling Fancy 3 600

I pulled some alphabets from my stash for the title. The pink letters are by Sassafras Lass and the blue chipboard letters are by Bella Blvd. I added a puffy heart sticker by Freckled Fawn to the center of the letter “a” and then did some stamping underneath.

Jana Eubank Feeling Fancy 4 600

Those cute vellum star stickers are by Studio Calico and have been waiting to be loved on for a long time! They look so cute here!

This second page also features the Shimelle Little by Little collection. I scrapbooked a page with this photo a couple of week ago, but wanted to make another page so that both of my daughters could have this page in their school album.

GOOD FRIENDS

Jana Eubank Good Friends 1 600

Again, I used a notebook style paper for the base of my layout. (This one is by Teresa Collins Designs from my stash.)

I love these little clouds … especially with the little sparkly, gems on them!

A die cut flower cluster gets a bit of POP when layered on top of an intricate doily.

Jana Eubank Good Friends 3 600

I cut the title words from the Encourage Wonder paper. I hope designers do more papers like this one! I have had so much fun cutting out the words for several page titles now! I added the key and lock die cuts together using a bit of white twine.

Jana Eubank Good Friends 4 600

I created this embellishment cluster on it’s own before adding it to this page … in fact, I initially had intended for it to go on a card, but it worked great here!
