Halloween Banner

Hey Scrappy Friends!
Lisa here with you today to share a fun Halloween banner I created with some new goodies from Paper House.


Halloween Banner Supplies:



I hand cut my banner using The Raven and Bats Scrapbook Papers and  backed them with black cardstock. I cut 2 of each color. I roughed up the edges a bit and then stitched around the edges with black thread. I took two black doilies and cut them in half placing half on the top of each banner. I then took a punch and punched a small piece for each banner. Finally I machine stitched using a zig zag stitch:


I added two eyelets to each banner to thread my twine through. I also added some ribbon on each end of the banners to hold them in place. The black ribbon is what I cut off of the 3D Lighted Shimmers. They come with the ribbon so you can hang them.

Check out this super duper cute ghost! This is one of the new Halloween 3D Lighted Shimmers. Isn’t he adorable?! I added the “Boo” sticker from the Scary Sculpted Stickers.



This “Spooktacular” sticker is from the 3D Stickers. I just love all the dimension they add to my banner!


Here is another 3D Lighted Shimmers. Check out the cool haunted mansion! I added the “Creepy” Sculpted Sticker. So fast and easy!


The “Halloween Hauntings” sticker is from the Cardstock Sticker Sheet. I just popped it up with foam tape to give some more dimension to this banner piece. The “owl” is from the 3D Sticker Sheet.


Here are some more close ups:
You can see see the dimension these fun embellies have.



The spiderwebs and spiders are from my stash.


I saved the best photos for last! These are the 3D Lighted Shimmers lit up:


All 3 windows light up at different times:


It’s kind of hard to see the light on the ghost, but if you look closely you can see it right above his nose:




I just love all the dimension these fun Halloween embellishments gave my banner and it was so fun and easy to create!

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy my friends!



Merry Christmas

Here’s a page featuring the new Snowflake 3D Shimmer, it lights up at the touch of a button!  I have also used some gorgeous Christmas papers, and various stickers. The sweater stickers, red glittered paper, and adorable gingerbread men really made me smile, and made me think of all the wonderful Christmastimes I’ve had with family.  The photo is of my son sledding on Long Island, New York, during a visit there. There’s not a lot of snow where I live now in Houston, so this was a pretty exciting day for everyone!


Supplies Used:


To make this layout I put a piece of foam core board underneath the photo with to give it some dimension. This also leaves space to tuck flowers and things into. I put the 3D Shimmer snowflake on, then the acetate snowflakes, Gingerbread, and Ugly Sweater Stickers.


To create more texture I applied gesso, gold lace, antique glass glitter, microbeads, a reindeer die cut, flowers, leaves, a chain, and charms. I rubbed on pearl mica powder on top of the gesso, and gold mica powder on the edges of almost everything.


I painted some areas with cobalt blue water color, and used aqua and bark colored watercolor pencil in others. I used a frost spray on a piece of memory glass, you can see it to the right of the photo.


Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!

Hello everyone! With Halloween around the corner I have decided to do some Halloween decor for you all.


Wicked Supplies



I could not wait to use the the skull garland shimmer and what perfect way to play with using a photo tray frame. Here you see I draped the garland across the frame. and used the pattern paper to fill in the frame.


I used lots of the stickers, yardstick die cuts and sculpted stickers to get the look I wanted. I also added ribbon and fabric and mesh leaves to the top.

This would make a great piece for those of you that have Halloween parties are just those of you that are a Halloween fan..

Happy Haunting..


Autumn Is In The Air

Hello Paper House fans! It’s Lee-Anne here today and I wanted to share another Fall layout with you.  I simply can’t get enough of the Autumn Woods papers.  The papers are so gorgeous!


Autumn Is In The Air Layout Supply List


For my title “Autumn Is In the Air” I fussy cut it and popped it up with some foam adhesive squares.


For the top right photo corner, I added the floral paper and fussy cut the heart.


Using many of the paper strips, I adhered them on top of the plaid background paper and fussy cut the “colors of fall, changing colors, and autumn is in the air” words.

This layout came together quite quickly and the paper really showcases the photo of the mountain where I hiked recently.  Love, love, love this collection.

Be sure to check out all the products in the Paper House Productions online shop here.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a creative day!

Autumn Is In The Air

Hey there!

The weather sure is changing here, it seems like summer just started and we are now already into fall weather.

Lisa here today to share a layout I created with the new Paper House Autumn Woods line. I love the crisp colors of red, orange, teal and brown in this gorgeous collection!

Autumn Is In The Air

Autumn Is In The Air Layout Supplies:

For my background, I used the Autumn Air paper and cut it in half, flipped one over and stitched them together. I added a few layers behind my photo using a few of the cards cut from Woodland Friends Tags paper. They were to small to fit behind my entire photo, so I cut them in half as well. I fussy cut the leaves from  the Autumn Woods paper and the foxes from the Woodland Friends Tags paper.

I added a journal box and word strips that I fussy cut from the Woodland Friends Tags paper. I just love this cute little fox! Isn’t he adorable?

I finished the layout off with some black mist spatters.

Have you created any fall layouts yet?

Until next time, stay scrappy my friends!



There’s no place like Home

You don’t need to be a huge Wizard of Oz fan…to fall in love with this new paper collection from Paper House Productions.  But if you are, you’re in luck!



Here’s what I used on my cards:


This sweet water colored collection from Michelle Coleman is beautifully done.


I fell in love with her red poppies.  (Who wouldn’t?) And as the saying goes…“There’s No Place Like Home”.





Do you love color? I do, and here’s a page that I think shows it. I used the beautiful Door to Atlantis Colorways paper from Paper House as my background. I love how the blue paper not only frames and highlights the page, but also creates a soft, peaceful mood.


Supplies Used:


To make this layout I sponged on gesso in order to prepare the background for the paint and textures I planned to use. I put the photo on watercolor paper with some foam core board in between to add dimension. I applied texture paste with three different stencils. I brushed on a layer of watercolors, then randomly dabbed on gold mica powder with my finger. I added more paint, and penciled in some areas with watercolor pencils. I glued on micro beads with glossy accents, and dabbed on another layer of gold mica.


I drew out some of the colors and details of the photo onto the paper behind it, and also used a blue butterfly to add visual interest. I tried to restrain myself from adding more items to the page, there was already a lot of detail in the photo.


I love the shimmery Gatsby Accent Pack pieces!


I used glass glitter, tulle,and a stamped peacock image, for more texture. Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

No Place Like Home

For my favorite product feature I chose the Wizard of Oz Collection. This classic movie has been a favorite in my family since I was a small child. Now my nieces and nephew have worn out my dvd.


Supplies Used:


I cut through this paper to give it the look I wanted. I layered the back ground and fussy cut the Tin man, Scarecrow, Dorothy and the Lion to add at the top along with the Great Oz and the yellow brick road. The layout would not be complete with the Yellow Brick Road!


For the bottom I fussy cut the poppies and added that as another layer.

The photos is of my niece who was obsessed with Dorothy for the longest time! My nephews are mixed in there too!
