Let’s Escape To The Woods

Hello Paper House fans! It’s Lee-Anne here today and for the last two weeks the Paper House Productions designers have been sharing their favorite Paper House products.  For me, my favorite products are the new and beautiful Autumn Woods Collection.  Since Fall is such a gorgeous season where I live, I thought I would share a layout of my puppy Syd going for a walk with me in the forest near my home.  I just love the sound of crunchy leaves.

Let’s Escape To The Woods Layout Supply List

For my background I began with white cardstock and watercolored it with distress inks in coordinating colors of the patterned papers.

I fussy cut the leaves and the title and added dimension to the layout by adhering them with foam dimensional squares.  To make the photo stand out a little more, I matted it with the brown floral patterned paper.

I am smitten with the adorable fox puffy stickers so I added one to the bottom right hand corner of the photo and also the word “explore”.

For the bottom section of the layout, I cut and adhered some paper strips and also a floral border sticker.  Finally, I journaled above the paper strips with a black felt fine line pen and also below the floral border sticker.

I really love the warm tones of Fall and a puppy just makes it even better don’t you think?  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Autumn Woods Collection in the Paper House Productions store.

Wine Tasting

For the next two weeks we will be featuring Designer’s Favorites – We asked each design team member to showcase their favorite Paper House Productions products in a project. Lisa’s showcasing a new favorite – the Shaker Card Embellishments!

Hey there Scrappy Friends!

Do you ever get some scrapping goodies that you just can’t wait to use? Well, when I received my new box release box, I was giddy with excitement over the new Shaker Card embellishments! I fell in love!

Lisa here today to share a layout I created using a few of my favorite Paper House products. Back in 2010 my hubby and I packed up the kids and took a trip out to California. One of our day trips was a trip to Napa Valley. Until now, I hadn’t scrapped these photos. The new SnapShots Wine Country were perfect to scrap them!

Wine

Wine Tasting Layout Supplies:

I decided to use a grid on my layout so that I could include all of my favorite new goodies. I added a bit of red watercolor to mimic red wine to my background. I added  a few strips of green and red patterned papers from a few different paper pads on top and bottom of my page and stitched in place.

I glued the grape Shaker Card right on my background paper and added the “Veni Vidi Vino I came. I saw I wined.” to the right of the shaker card. I added the “Sweet” Sculpted Sticker to the top of the card.

Wine close up 4

These are 2 of the 3 photos I added to my layout. On the first one, I adhered it right on the background paper and added the “Wine tasting” SnapShot Sticker and then added the “Love” Sculpted Sticker above it. On the second photo, which I popped up with foam tape,  I added the “Cheers” SnapShot Sticker to the upper left corner.

Wine close up 3

For this part of my grid, I used the green frame and placed the wine glass/bottle overlay on top of it. These are both in the Wine Country Mixed Card Pack. This pack has so many frames and overlays to choose from! I added the “Savor” Sculpted Sticker and also the “Wine Country” SnapShot Sticker. I tucked in a bit of wine colored tangled thread under the 2nd photo.

Wine close up 2

Here is a closer look at the “Vino” Card. I also added another of the SnapShot Stickers to the lower right side along with some more tangled thread. I finished the layout off with some black mist spatters.

Autumn Woods Pop-Up card and Collage

For the next two weeks we will be featuring Designer’s Favorites – We asked each design team member to showcase their favorite Paper House Productions products in a project.  Sue’s favorite is the new Autumn Woods Collection and she’s got a couple of projects to share today using it!

Autumn Woods Pop Up Card 92

Supplies Used:

One of the best things about being on a design team is the opportunity to work with awesome products.  When I got my last box of goodies from Paper House Productions I instantly fell in love with the Autumn Woods Collection.

Autumn Woods Pop Up Card 083

The sweet water colored animals are cute without being to cutesy.  I knew as soon as I saw them that they needed to be made into a pop-up card.

Autumn Woods Pop Up Card 084

Tips…

  • I apply baby powder on the back of my stickers with a small paintbrush to remove the tackiness.  That way I can use my stickers like die-cuts.
  • On the front of the card:  I love adding dimension… so under the “Autumn is in the Air” and the “bunnies” I used 3-D foam mounting squares.
  • Add even more dimension to the inside of your pop up card by adding thin foam mounting squares to the stickers “tree” and  “autumn woods” and strategically placing them on the background.
  • I created a couple of pop-up steps for my forest friends.

Autumn Woods Collage 115

While cleaning up the Autumn Woods scraps laying on my desk, I decided to make aFall Collage using a rummage sale frame I picked up last month for next to nothing.

Autumn Woods Pop Up Card 0099

All in all… I would have to say that the Autumn Woods Collection has to be my favorite Paper House Productions collection so far.  (at least for the time being)

Just Breathe

For the next two weeks we will be featuring Designer’s Favorites – We asked each design team member to showcase their favorite Paper House Productions products in a project.  Melissa is kicking things off with this beautiful piece featuring her favorite: Orchid ColorWays.

2016-09-12-10-03-21-just-breathe-big-pic

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a card that uses a stunningly realistic photo of lavender by   Paper House. Purple is one of my favorite colors, and I love both the appearance and         fragrance of these little beauties.

2016-09-12-10-06-52-just-breathe-top-left

Supplies Used:

2016-09-12-10-07-37-just-breathe-top-right

To make this card I surrounded the flower image with a layer of gesso, and then glued on tulle, glitter, microbeads, pearls, rhinestones, glitter, sequins and some small pieces from the Gatsby Accent Pack. I put some gesso on the texture in random areas. I brushed on metallic paint, a mix of mica powder and water, and oil pastels, on top of the gesso.

  I think it’s cool how the background paper looks like canvas.

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

Autumn Card

Its about that time that cold fronts and  crisp fall air starts rolling in. I  can’t wait as I am a fall / winter girl.  So I was in the mood to play with fall colors and decided to make this fall autumn card using the new paper line.paper-house-autumn-card

Autumn Card Supplies

paper-house-autumn-card-close-1

I used everything from this sheet of paper. I cut out the autumn phrase from the paper and set that aside. I then cut a piece of paper for my matt and the opposite side of the paper just  a little smaller as a double matt. I then added leaves, blossoms, and bling to finish the look I was going far.

I also tucked in a twine bow as you can see in the photo.

Doesn’t this make you want the fall to hurry and get here. I know I am ready.

Wizard Of Oz Layout

Hello Paper House fans! It’s Lee-Anne here on the blog today sharing a Wizard Of Oz layout I created.

IMG_4343

Supply List

I wanted to add some texture and interest to the layout so I cut 12 X 1 inch strips of the Wizard Of Oz Poppies Paper and used a pair of fringe scissors to add fringe to the strips and adhered them to a 12X12 piece of white card stock starting at the bottom and working upwards.  I had a bare space on the top so I added border strips to the top.

IMG_4350

Next I added some gold stickers to the layout that are included in the Wizard Of Oz Watercolors Paper Crafting Kit.

IMG_4348

Finally, I added card stock stickers to the layout and gave the Wizard Of Oz characters some dimension by popping them up with some foam squares and adhering them to the fringe background.

IMG_4349

There you have it.  A fringe layout.  I hope you are inspired to try this technique with the gorgeous Wizard Of Oz Collection.

Have a lovely day!

Where the Wild Things Are

Paper House released a licensed collection this summer for  Where the Wild Things Are!  If you are a fan of this childhood favorite you will want to check it out!  Christine joining you today to share a layout featuring this fabulous collection!

wild-things

Supplies Used: Where the Wild Things Are Paper Crafting Kit

This Paper Crafting Kit makes it super easy to put together a fun layout! There are multiple sheets of each patterned paper in the kit making it possible for you to use both sides.  I layered the blue star background paper onto the one with words to create my base.  I also matted my picture with another paper that had both text and characters on it.  AND of course I had to fussy cut some of the leafy background!  I outlined both my picture frame and the leaves to match the font in style.

wildcu

The Cardstock stickers in the kit include a fun font so you can create a title to fit your layout.

wildcu2

The stickers also include a variety of characters from the book – I liked how this one framed my picture and helped me create a unique title!  The circular stickers you see with “Wild Rumpus!” and “I’ll Eat You Up!” are puffy stickers.  Similar to all of Paper House’s other Puffy Stickers – they add some nice texture to the project!

This background paper was perfect for this fun travel page!

I added the Teal Chevron Paper behind my photo and then started placing the Cardstock stickers around my photo, popping some of them up to give dimension:
