Noel Mignon: Fall

jana-eubank-noel-mignon-all-fall-fall-drive-6

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday this weekend in the USA, I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for YOU! Thank you for reading my posts, your kinds comments, support, and for inspiring me to keep creating. I love the online scrapbook community! You are all just such lovely people! Thank you for being a part of my life.😀

Over the next few days I’m working on posting the remainder of the Fall themed projects I have created this year (although, in reality, you might still see a few trickle in here-and-there over the next week) before tackling my holiday crafting.

Today I am up on the Noel Mignon blog with a two-page layout featuring the November All Fall Classic and All Fall Daily Diary kits. I also created a process video that is listed below, if you would like to see how this page came together.

FALL

Here is a closer look at some of the details of the left side of the layout.

I had so much fun fussy-cutting out the leaves from the Pretty Little Studio “Oakley Avenue” vellum paper. They looked so cute scattered at the feet of my forest friends.

I cut the title on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the cut file “Fall by Loni Stevens” (Design #15233) from the Silhouette Design Store. I embossed it using the Woodgrain 5×7 embossing folder by Darice.

And now for the right side of this page spread …

Of course I have to add a little bit of aqua to every page I do! I adore this flair badge from Pretty Little Studio!

And how cute is this little fox from the Echo Park Fall is in the Air collection. I cut him out of the 3×4 cut apart sheet included with the All Fall Daily Diary Kit.

Mr. Hedgie, by Simple Stories, makes his home in the top right corner of the page. I added more leaves, a script word sticker, heart stickers, and a couple of sparkly decorative brads.

Thanks so much for coming by! I hope you leave feeling inspired to create something fun!

Happy Thanksgiving! I wanted to hop on today and just tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for you! Thank you for inspiring me to create and to share. It’s a small gesture, but today I wanted to give you all a little something.

Ever since taking taking a Handlettering Class by my good friend, Tracie Claiborne, I have been obsessed with practicing! So, I created a FREE cutfile for you of the words “thankful” and “family.” Enjoy!

And a little page inspiration using the cut file to go along with it.

THANKFUL

Remember the last few scraps of the Pebbles collection I showed you in THIS POST … I managed to create a two-pager from them. Yeah! I did add in a sheet of woodgrain patterned paper by Bella Blvd. to anchor things a bit, but I really like how it came together!

JanaEubank_Thankful1

Hmmmm. I might go back and add in a bit of stitching around the edges … Yeah! I think so, stitching would be a fun addition here!

I hope you enjoy my handwritten words on this page! They were pretty fun to create for you!

JanaEubank_Thankful5b

I found these adorable sunflower stickers at Hobby Lobby yesterday by The Paper Studio. I love how they have a bit of sparkle to them with the glittered petals and the rhinestone centers.

JanaEubank_Thankful4

They went great with the American Crafts Hayride stickers, Pebbles Stickers, and Imaginisce wood buttons.

JanaEubank_Thankful3Right

My stamping underneath the “Family” word got a little messed up, but I decided to just run with it.🙂

Last Two Halloween Pages and a GIVEAWAY!

GiveawayEmbossFolder

It’s been so wonderful creating and sharing Halloween projects with you these past couple of weeks. Today I’ll be sharing the last two pages in this set and then will be moving on to Fall/Thanksgiving/Family related topics next month. I appreciate you taking the time to visit and for the warm welcome you have given me back into the blogging world. :D It’s been so nice to hear from so many of you in the comments here and on Facebook. Thank you!!!

HALLOWEEN DANCE

Today I’m scrapping pictures from my daughter’s Halloween Dance date last year. Each couple dressed as a different decade. They looked so cute as a group! Jensyn and her date went in 80s style. How do you like her fish net sweater, bright jewelry and leg warmers? Classic!

JanaEubank_HalloweenDance1

I wanted to play with the bold polka dot paper from the Project Life Midnight Edition Collection kit on this page, but I knew if I wasn’t careful, the bold pattern would overpower the photos. To keep the larger pattern in check, I placed it on a kraft cardstock background and paired it with patterns that were less commanding.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock, Patterned Papers (Project Life, Die Cuts with a View, Martha Stewart Crafts, My Mind’s Eye), Die Cuts/Chipboard Elements (Crate Paper), Buttons/Mini Stapler (American Crafts), Dimensional Stickers (Me and My Big Ideas), Letter Stickers (Bella Blvd.), Punches (American Crafts), Deco Scissors (Provo Craft), String

JanaEubank_HalloweenDance4

I created clusters of embellishments around the page mixing Crate Paper “After Dark” elements with a pack of dimensional stickers by Me and My Big Ideas.

JanaEubank_HalloweenDance5

I still use these letter stickers by Bella Blvd. all the time. They were one of their first releases and I ended up with several sheets of them from being on their design team. I’ll be sad when I run out of them one day. I just love the height and width of the font. They are great for adding a bold title in a small space. Here I have layered black letter stickers on top of white letter stickers for a shadow effect.

For this page, I channeled my inner Melissa Stinson.🙂 I’ve been re-reading her blog lately and find her style and approach to scrapping so inspiring! She recently started blogging again here-and there, and I’m so happy about it. I love her style. It’s different than mine, but it’s fun to “try on” a different style once in awhile and learn from the way other scrappers do things.

I love how Melissa clusters smaller photos together and then frames her page compositions with strips of paper across the top and bottom. I will definitely be adding these “tricks” to my scrappy repertoire to use again. Thank you inspiring me, Melissa!

JanaEubank_BooDance2

I still had the Project Life Midnight papers on my desk from the previous layout, and decided to incorporate some of them on this page to tie the two dance pages together visually in our album.

Again, I mixed Crate Paper “After Dark” elements with a Halloween set of Soft Spoken stickers from Me & My Big Ideas. They worked really well together!

JanaEubank_BooDance3

SUPPLIES: Cardstock, Patterned Paper (Project Life), Chipboard/Glitter Stickers (Crate Paper), Brads/Sticker (My Mind’s Eye), Dimensional Stickers (Me and My Big Ideas), Tag (American Crafts), Tab (Pink Paislee), Mist (Studio Calico)

……………………………………….

On a final note, I thought it would be fun to have a GIVEAWAY! I mean, why should the kids be the only ones to get treats this Halloween, right?!🙂

I have been cleaning out my scrapbook room and have come across several products that I have purchased twice. Gulp! (Please tell me I’m not the only one!) Crazy me! But LUCKY YOU! Here is a set of embossing folders I’ll be drawing for. (Keep in mind that the large folder will only work in a large format embossing machine … like the Craftwell eBosser, Craftwell Cut N’ Boss, or the Spellbinders Grand Calibur).

GiveawayEmbossFolder

To be entered into the drawing, please leave a comment and let me know if there is something you’d like to learn from me or leave me a question you’d like me to answer. Comments will close at Midnight, Thursday, November 5th, 2015. I will announce the winner on Friday, November 6th. (Due to shipping costs, winner will be selected from the contiguous United States. Thanks for understanding.) Good luck!

Have a Happy Halloween! Muaah ahh ahh!

Hallow-CREAM

JanaEubank_October5

It’s the start of a new week and I’m back to share more Halloween pages with you. I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

After creating 6 Halloween pages, I decided to lighten things up a bit by switching over to a cream background. I liked the look so much that I created three pages with cream backgrounds. I’ll share two of them with you today.

BOO

JanaEubank_Boo1

I’ve really been getting a lot of mileage from the Crate Paper After Dark Ephemera Pack! Every single embellishment on this page (with the exception of the orange and text print banners) came from that pack. WooHOO!

JanaEubank_Boo2

Instead of sprinkling my page with black mist, this time I doodled a few circles here and there. I really like how it looks!

OCTOBER 31st

If you’re wondering why I have so many pages of my kids in their costumes, here is my process.

Each year I create a double-page spread of all of my kids in their costumes. That layout goes in our family album. Then, I create single pages of each child in their costume to go in their school album. The kids really enjoy seeing what they dressed up as each school year.

JanaEubank_October1

For this page, I used some patterned papers from the Project Life Midnight Edition 12×12 Paper Collection Pack. The dark yellow in these papers actually reads more as orange when paired with Halloween items. Love it!

JanaEubank_October2Left

I had a few random embellishments left over from Halloween kits I have purchased in the past, I used them  here to embellish the title.

JanaEubank_October3Right

You know those dorky spider rings all the kids get this time of year? I bought a pack of them, cut off the ring part with scissors, and used them as page embellishments. They are so creepy and fun!

JanaEubank_October4 JanaEubank_October5

SUPPLIES: Sketch Inspiration (Laura Whitaker), Patterned Paper (Project Life Midnight Edition, Sassafras Lass, Making Memories, SEI), Die Cuts (Crate Paper), Tags & Halloween Glitter Stickers (American Crafts), Skeleton Flower & Fringe Flower) (Making Memories), Brads (My Mind’s Eye), Black Mist (Heidi Swapp), Plastic spiders, Twine

Thanks for letting me share my projects with you today!
