Jana Eubank's Blog Posts

Ahhh! There is now a bite in the morning and evening air and that means that fall is just around the corner! Squeal! It's my FAVORITE time of year! Hello, everyone! It's Jana Eubank. Whenever fall comes around, I want to cozy up inside and BAKE! You do, too?! There's just something about coming home to the scent of pumpkin muffins or chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven on a crisp fall day, am I right?

Today's layout features the warm colors of the Fall Farmhouse collection and photos of my daughter and her friend doing a little fall baking themselves!

I wanted to create a patchwork effect on this layout. I chose the Harvest/Dots paper for the background and then cut several of the papers from the 6x8 Paper Pad into 2"x4" and 2"x2" blocks. 

My photos are also 2"x4" and are matted with the SN@P! Basics Aspen/White Notebook paper.

I used the 6x12 Chipboard Stickers and the Combo Stickers to accent the title and create an embellishment cluster next to the middle photo. I am in LOVE with the wheat and berries tucked in with the florals. They look so cute with those plump and cheerful pumpkins!

I cut the label shape from the 4x4 Elements paper and then used a label and pumpkin sticker from the Mini Sticker Tablet to accent it. I also added green enamel dots and the chipboard banner and tiered plate stickers. CUTE!

Of course I had to pull in some washi tape, too! You can see that I layered the gingham and striped washi tapes together across the top and bottom blocks. I also added a bit of the gingham washi to the right of the title.

Happy Fall to one and all! Have a great day!

It's been so much fun to see everyone's creations with the Say Cheese Halloween collection this week on the blog. Hi, Everyone! It's Jana Eubank. I'm here to finish out the week with a scrapbook page!

The colors in the Say Cheese Halloween collection are so vibrant and fun! I especially love the addition of teal and green because they go so well with my daughter's gypsy costume in the photos I'm using today.

I fussy-cut the "B-O-O" letters from th2 2x2 Elements paper to use as my title. I placed the letters across the top of the chipboard banner piece and then added a die cut web (Bits & Pieces) and the chipboard spider and bats.

I am loving the purple in this collection. I cut my photos in circles using the Circle Photo Crops and then matted them with the purple, spider-patterned So Creepy paper. I then accented the photos with the chipboard stars and "Not So Scary" phrase, as well as some die cut bats  (Bits & Pieces).

At the bottom of the page, I fussy-cut several icons from the Elements papers. The potion bottle ingredients are cooking up something interesting in the neighboring cauldron (both from the 4x4 Elements paper) while the jack-o-lanterns look on with their silly and friendly grins (4x6 Elements paper). Good thing they have some chipboard candy corns to snack on while they wait for the concoction to finish brewing! *wink*

I added journaling to the postcard die cut from the Bits & Pieces pack in the bottom right corner of the page. I then added a few phrase stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet, as well as a chipboard spider.

This not-so-scary, colorful Halloween page was so much fun to put together! Have you thought about what costume you want to wear for Halloween this year?

Trick or treat, she's so sweet! The new Happy Haunting collection was perfect for scrapbooking these two cute friends who decided to put together their own gypsy costumes for Halloween one year. Hi, everyone! It's Jana Eubank. It was so much fun listening to these two girls giggle and squeal as they ran back and forth to each other's houses digging through their skirts, scarves, and their mom's jewelry and makeup putting together the perfect gypsy ensemble. 

Do you sometimes feel like that when you're scrapbooking? Like you have to dig and dig to find just the right pieces for your project? Stop digging and grab yourself a collection kit by Simple Stories. The simple, yet brilliant, patterns make it a snap to document your memories!

Time and time again I reach for the Snap Basics Paper Pack for the backgrounds for my layouts. Not only do I love a neutral, clean background, but I adore the built in journaling lines! 

I have been enjoying adding torn bits to my pages lately. This technique is a simple way to add texture to a design. Here I tore a strip of the Fright Night paper to go across the top of my page. There was one spot where the tear curved upwards. Instead of letting it bother me, I ran with it and added a few tab stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet to fill it in. What a fun detail!

I couldn't WAIT to try out the 6x6 Stencil from this collection. The bats in flight were just calling my name. I used a dauber with a black ink pad to create the pattern and then splattered some mist over the top.

Next, I used the chipboard phrase for my title (SWOON!) and then cut out a few of the larger designs from the 4x4 Elements paper decorate the space below. These larger elements are anchored on the chipboard banner and then accented with a pumpkin and floral cluster sticker (Combo Sticker Sheet).

One of my favorite things about this collection is the soft touches of pink. I love how the shades of pink pick up the girls' youthful skin. The pink also adds a feminine, flirty touch!

The Happy Haunting collection was such a fun way to take a break from the summer heat and has me counting down to the cooler days ahead!

Thanks for coming by!
