Jana Eubank's Blog Posts

Hi Friends! Jana Eubank here with a new page using the Good Vibes collection.

My daughters have developed a new summer tradition of spending an afternoon together painting wood boxes that they call "Treasure Boxes." Throughout the coming year, they place mementos into their boxes as they go on vacations, or gather things that are important to them in their daily lives. 

The 6x8 Pads have become a favorite of mine for fussy cutting large elements for my scrapbook pages. Here I placed a large floral in the upper left corner of the page. I used a Black Glaze Pen to add a bit of shimmer to the flower centers, and even accented a few of them with black gems from my stash.

For the title, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a phrase. The original phrase said "Friends are a Treasure." I cut off the word "friends" and then used pink letter stickers to replace it with the word "sisters."

The flowers on this layout follow a diagonal line through the page from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. I used a chipboard element with flowers on the top left corner of the horizontal photo, along with a sprinkling of heart die cuts, to help connect the diagonal through the photos. The flowers in the bottom right corner of the page were fussy-cut from one of the cards on the 4x6 Horizontal Elements paper.

Two strips of patterned paper along the left side of the page, anchor the design and tie all of the colors together.

Next time your family members are hanging out together chatting around the table grab a few shots with your camera and create a page about their relationship.  You will be so glad that you did!

Hello, everyone! Jana Eubank here today with a layout using the Hometown USA collection. I was inspired by the quilt-like pattern of the All American paper to create a large pieced star on my page.

Take a look at my page below!

I cut the geometric star with my Silhoeutte Cameo machine and then backed each section with various patterned papers. I even utilized the 3x4 and 4x6 cut apart cards of the Elements paper. Next, I created another star from two shades of blue cardstock to layer on top, then decorated the center of this star with two more stars cut from navy cardstock and red glitter cardstock. 

I used a few dies from my stash to die cut my title from navy and red glitter cardstock. I love the picnic elements included on thie 6x12 Sticker sheet because they were perfect to emphasize the topic of my page ... our family's patriotic picnic! 

The new "It's a Date" stamps are perfect for adding the date to your scrapbook pages, like I did here.

I placed my photos on top of one another to the right of the star and then accented them with more of the adorable stickers from the 6x12 Sticker Sheet. I especially love the bike and those festive balloons!

The page was feeling visually heavy on the right side, so to balance it out I mimicked the three photos by lining up three of the square stickers from the sticker sheet in the top left corner of the page. I matted a couple of them with navy cardstock to tie them in with the navy cardstock of the large star.

Celebrating the Fourth of July is one of my favorite things about summer! I love getting together with family, laughing, watching parades, and eating good food. How do you celebrate the holiday? Have you scrapbooked it? If not, be sure to take photos of your favorite things about your celebration and make a page to document your traditions. You will be so glad that you did!

Hello, friends! Jana Eubank here. Summer is all about beating the heat with cool treats and the Hello Summer is the perfect way to record those fun moments with those sticky sweets. My family's favorite summer treat is Hawaiian shaved ice, and today's page features my family enjoying their favorite flavors after doing a little swimming.

I built three embellishment clusters on this page. To make the page cohesive, I made sure each cluster contained similar colors and elements. In this case, the common denominator in all three clusters are flowers and black and white phrases.

Across the bottom of both pages I used a wide strip of the Oh Happy Day paper with it's wave pattern. Instead of cutting the strips straight across with my paper trimmer, I used my scissors to follow along the wavy lines of the pattern.

I used several chipboard elements for my title and the decorations around my title. I used different thicknesses of foam squares to give these pieces different levels, making it more interesting to look at.

Have you scrapbooked your favorite sticky, summer treat?!
