Hello! My name is Jana Eubank, and I am so thrilled to be joining Bella Blvd. as the Guest Designer this month!
I have been a memory keeper in one form or another for my entire life; writing in journals or combining our photos with fun supplies and stories in scrapbooks. I love the reflective nature of this hobby, all the good and creative people I have met, and feel so blessed at how it has enriched my life. I also really love to create 3d paper crafting projects as gifts or as decorations for the different holidays and seasons. I am 41 years old and live in Bountiful, Utah. I love being a part of this industry and spend my days designing and scrapbooking about my life with my husband, four children, and two dogs. I am currently a part of the Echo Park Paper and Queen & Co. design teams and have also worked in the industry as a design team coordinator, product designer, creative director, and co-owner of my own company.
I love the happy nature of Bella Blvd. products and couldn't wait to dig in!
This first page features two of my daughters and the You Are Loved Illustrated Faith collection.
I used white cardstock as the base of my layout, spritzing it with a bit of teal spray mist, stitching the edges and matting it with a couple of the patterned papers before adding my photos and the other elements.
used the Heavens Paper to set off my main photo and then added a couple of pennants, clear cuts, and a die cut flower to the bottom.
On the left side of my page, I used the letter stickers to spell out my title, stitching the letters down with my sewing machine for a little more texture.
At the bottom of my page, I added a clear cut flower and a clear cut XOXO border, that I also added stitching to.

I have had this next photo waiting for the perfect papers to scrap it with for a few years now ... I was delighted to receive the Barnyard Collection and knew it would be perfect for this fun memory about my daughter dressing up as a farmer for Career Day at her school
At the top of the page, I layered a couple of the cloud die cuts along with some pennant and hearts to give the sun in the corner a little more dimension. I added red gems to the hearts for a bit of sparkle.
For the title, I used the "Smile" acrylic word along the bottom of my photo. I accented the left side with a broccoli die cut and radish puffy sticker.
In the bottom right corner of the page, I used die cuts to cover up the pre-printed pattern and create my own little dimensional farm scene. How cute is that chicken and bushel of apples?! I added my journaling on journaling strips created with my computer and sprinkled in a few punched hearts adorned with red gems.
I love how happy and bright this page turned out!

The final page I have for you today features the adorable Secrets of the Sea (boy) Collection.
A few years ago we visited the Outerbanks of North Carolina. And even though the beach was literally across the street, my kids and their cousins seemed to prefer the ease of the swimming pool. I think it was nice to have snacks and shade just a few footsteps away, and they also enjoyed now having sand everywhere. LOL!
To draw focus to my main photo, I placed the title along the bottom edge along with a little ocean scene created with the die cuts, stickers, and puffy stickers.
I ADORE the embossed nature of the puffy stickers and couldn't resist sprinkling those darling, little blue fish everywhere!
I placed the larger photos in a vertical column on the page, using one of the 4x6 cut apart cards to ground my journaling strips.
The clips, die cuts, and puffy stickers were perfect for adorning the "empty" corners of my photo.
