Hello Everyone! Jana Eubank here! It's taken me a long time to become comfortable scrapbooking pictures and stories about myself, but the I Am collection makes it easy ... and FUN!

I used several papers from the 6x8 pad to mat my photos and also to create lots of fun layers behind them!

I fussy-cut these butterflies out of one of the 6x8 sheets. I love how they reinforce the idea behind my page title with a nod to "evolving."

I used the darling chipboard tassel banner in the lower left corner of my photo and then layered my title to the left and underneath. Several chipboard hearts accent the spaces in between the butterflies.

The foil-bordered journaling block was hand-cut from the 4x6 Horizontal Elements paper. I chose to have it bleed off the bottom edge of the page.

When was the last time YOU created a page about yourself?


Hi, Scrappers! Jana Eubank here today with a new page using the Welcome Spring collection.

One of my favorite things about Simple Stories is the beautiful floral papers in each of their collections. I LOVE fussy-cutting out the flowers and using them to decorate my page.

On this page, the flowers are the most colorful thing on the page. I placed them at the top of the page to accent my journaling ...

... and at the bottom of the page to call attention to my photo.

A strip of black and white striped paper (Hello Spring paper) anchors the photo and title.

Brighten up your Spring on your next project with beautiful florals and Simple Stories!


Hello, Simple Stories Fans! Jana Eubank here with a layout using the Crafty Girl collection.

I love the rainbow striped "Handmade" paper from this collection and decided to use a large vertical strip to anchor my photos as part of my page design. To accent the edges of the strip, I ran it through my sewing machine on a zig-zag stitch setting without any thread loaded into the machine. The pierced pattern left behind is subtle, but interesting!

Next, I played off the rainbow scheme to create a colorful title for my page using a block font and my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutting machine. I used scraps of paper from my stash to back each of the letters. I fussy-cut the cluster of flowers from one of the 4X6 Horizontal Elements cards.

My photos are matted on silver foil cardstock, with a larger bottom margin to look like polaroid frames. I used the scallop border sticker from the Combo Sticker sheet to anchor the photos and embellishments at the bottom of the page.

I love stacking the Bits & Pieces die cuts together with the Chipboard stickers to create dimensional clusters. 

Have you tried a rainbow color scheme on a layout recently?!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Scrapping!
