Wonder Woman Gift Bag and Card

Hi! Lisa here to share with you a fun gift bag/card set I made for a friend who was going through a rough patch using some of the fun stickers and papers from the Wonder Woman Collection. We all have those amazing strong, confident, and extraordinary women in our lives and this line is perfect for them!!


Supplies Used: Wonder Woman Cardstock Stickers; Wonder Woman Portraits Foil Paper; Wonder Woman Tags Foil Paper; Wonder Woman; Wonder Woman Amazon Princess Foil Paper; Wonder Woman Confidence & Strength Foil Paper and Wonder Woman Logos Faux Enamel Stickers

I used a plain kraft gift bag and made a front for my gift bag by mounting the portrait of Wonder Woman on some cardstock, layering it on the Confidence & Strength paper and then adding a small strip of the foil paper on the bottom. Lastly I added the Wonder Woman cardstock sticker on pop dots to give the bag some dimension and texture.

My tag was created on one of the cut apart tag on the Wonder Woman Tags Foil Paper, I then die cut a circle & scallop circle out of cardstock and mounted the cardstock Wonder Woman sticker and word “pow” on pop dots onto the circle. I stamped the phrase “I’m Her for you” in black ink. I attached red grossgrain ribbon to my tag with a hand sewn button and then then tied the tag to the bag with gold string. Here is a close up of the tag

To complete the ensemble I made a super quick and easy card. I added the Wonder Woman cardstock sticker as well as a few of the faux enamel stickers to tie in the gold on the bottom layer of the card.

I enjoyed creating with this fun line and know you will too! Happy crafting!

Wonder Woman Cards

Hello, this is Sukie sharing a fun project! When I came across the new Wonder Woman collection I was immediately inspired to create some cards.  I started out creating one card and couldn’t stop working with these gorgeous papers.  As a result, I have a set of 3 cards to share today.

This set of cards are all about strength and determination.  Although the cards could be used for any occasion, I think they are perfect to celebrate the strong woman in your life.  I combined papers and stickers from the same collection which all coordinate perfectly.  The stickers and fussy cut elements are at the focal point of all three cards.

The collage card consists of stickers, fussy cut pieces and die cut stars. A couple of the embellishments were popped up on foam dots for a more dramatic and dimensional look.  I sectioned off my card so several stickers could be showcased against the variety of papers.  The black card base provides a great back drop for the collage.

The next card has a Wonder Woman sticker anchored as the focal point on some die cut stars.  The shimmer of gold in the papers bring a bit of elegance to this card.  A few smaller die cut stars were scattered around the oversized banner. Once again, I used a black card base for a sharp contrast.

My final card has a CAS design which really showcases the papers and the fussy cut Wonder Woman symbol.  The bottom of my card is basic white card stock so I could stamp an inspirational sentiment.  A few die cut stars surround the focal point of my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

All He Needs is Her~Wonder Woman

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page showcasing the Wonder Woman Collection by Paper House Productions.  This page has a fun spin to it.  My grandson has many hero figures but not Wonder Woman, so the theme for the page is “her” Wonder Woman.

Showcasing “her” Wonder Woman on this pattern paper by Paper House Productions.  The tags/foil paper has really cool patterns and tags that can be used in different ways on a scrapbook page.  The stars are cut from the tags/foil papers with a steel die.

may3wm
The stars are randomly placed, on the scrapbook page, to bring in more of the red color. Foam adhesive squares were used to adhere the paper stars to the page.  Love the dimension it gives the stars and how they add texture to the scrapbook page. One of the tags/foil paper is used at the bottom of “her” Wonder Woman to showcase the star of the show “her”.  The gold arrow is cut from the tags/foil paper.  The big gold “W” was trimmed down to create the arrow used in this cluster about “her” Wonder Woman.

The faux enamel stickers were placed under the “her” cluster.  The gold color, on the sticker,  brings your eye to the gold foil paper border used under the photo strip. Paper is an amazing creative tool.  If you can think it up, you can make pretty embellishments for a scrapbook page or journal book.

She Is Our Wonder Woman~

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Wonder Woman Collection by Paper House Productions.  I was really stumped on this paper choice, I was asked to create with, but then I remembered I had the perfect photo.  All you need is photo that shows strength and this one does!!!
may4wm
I used two different coordinating papers from the Wonder Woman Collection and layered them with one of the border papers, from the collection. The tag/ foil
paper made a cute cover for a private journal space.
may5wm
A white tag is attached to the tag/foil paper, from the Wonder Woman Collection and the story is written and then clipped to the tag. It can be easily removed, to read the story,  but still private.
may6wm
The Wonder Woman cardstock stickers make great embellishments, to enhance and showcase a special photo or space, on the scrapbook page.  I used them both ways on this page.  The date tag/white tag is stamped to document this amazing day!!!
may7wm
Bits and pieces, of stickers and paper, work great for a small embellishment cluster in a corner of the scrapbook page, you are creating.  This collection is great for that hero in your life.  It comes with many products that can be included on your scrapbook page or a journal page.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Did you know today is actually a minor holiday in Mexico? It’s ironic, since many people think it’s Mexican Independence Day. But the truth is, it’s the day when Mexican forces bested the French at the Battle of Puebla. And how better to celebrate than with margaritas and Mexican food, right? I’m up on the Paperhouse Productions blog with another quick layout featuring Explore Your World Map Double Sided Paper, Explore Your World Tags Double Sided Paper, Passport Stamps Double Sided Paper, and Mexico Destinations Stickers.

My favorite part about this collection is that the coordinated papers make it so easy to mix and match. Once I cropped my layering elements, I created a film strip-esque for my photos.

I love the look of stitching on paper, and constantly try to incorporate stitches outside of the typical straight lines. I picked this stitch pattern because it reminded me of a Mayan pyramid.

To break up the straight lines, I spackle a think layer of white gesso for a journaling background, as well as a little bit to help my alpha stand out. Is it weird this it made me think of sour cream?

Aaanyways, the finishing touches were the Mexico stickers. These little cuties were the… Sour cream on the Taco – _- (Yes, I HAD to).

And I’m in love! Be sure to hop on the shop to check out all these must-have supplies!

Graduate Layout Page

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I have a project to share for some graduation inspiration. This layout page showcases a picture of my daughter from 2 years ago when she graduated with her Bachelor’s degree. In a few weeks this beautiful, young lady is now graduating with her Master’s degree.  She had big goals and it is amazing to see her achieve them!  I am so proud of her!

My layout page uses a patterned border strip from the gorgeous Stargazer collection.  I drew inspiration from the gold accents and arrows for my scrapbook page.  The triangles on the right side are fussy cut from a patterned page from the same collection.  

The title was created with some dies and popped up on foam for added dimension.  The graduation themed stickers are from the Paper House Life Organized stickers and were clustered together in a circle pattern.  I temporarily adhered a circle die on the my background paper with some washi tape and used the circle as a guide for placing the stickers.  The end result is so fun and whimsical on a layout page!

A few die cut arrows were anchored below the stickers with a sprinkling of star stickers amongst them. The graduation caps along the gold paper are from the Paper House Sticky Pix Puffy stickers.  The texture of the puffy stickers looks amazing against the gold background.  A tiny arrow at the bottom of the gold border adds a fun embellishment to the page.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a spectacular day!

National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day!

Good morning & Happy National Adopt a Shelter Pet day! What a fun day to celebrate as I know many of you have adopted a shelter pet at some point in your lives. We all love our fur babies and using our Journey Book inserts is a great way to to document the fun, happy, and silly times with your sweet pet or pets! Today I am sharing the story of how I met the neighborhood cat in the small town neighborhood my brother lives in.

Supplies Used: Color washed Journey Book insert; Explore Your World Tags Paper; Blush Washi Tape Set; Best friends Sculpted stickers; Cats Illustrated 2″ stickers; Cat Faces Puffy Stickers & Cat Faces To Go stickers.

I used one of the cut apart cards from the Explore your World Tags paper to make a pocket to hold my journaling. I did my journaling on 2 tags and used my computer to do the journaling as this story was a bit long as it covered 3 years! I stamped directly on the cut apart card so the date was front and center to remind me of the first time I met Buddy! Here is a close up of the journaling tags

The journaling chronicles how I first met Buddy the cat back in the Fall of 2016. While on my yearly visit to my brother’s home and while on a walk with my little nephew we saw a cat sunning on the front porch of a home. I found out the next day from the home owner of the home where he was sunning himself that he was actually the neighborhood cat. He was super friendly and instead of taking him to the shelter all the neighbors in this small community care for Buddy so all his needs are met! For the past 3 years I have visited my brother every Fall & my nephew and I always walk in the neighborhood and go visit Buddy. If we don’t see him we call for him by name and he will come running to us! This past Spring when I heard of severe flooding in my brother’s town I immediately became worried for not only the townspeople but Buddy! I was so glad to learn after the flooding was over Buddy was safe and sound and his neighborhood family as usual was giving him the best care and watching out for him!

I think the Best Friends sculpted stickers, Cat Faces sticker to go, Cat faces puffy stickers & the Illustrated cat stickers were the perfect embellishments for my story! I love how puffy stickers give your spread some texture without all the bulk, especially when using a smaller format to document your memories!

We would love to hear more about your pets or see how you have documented your pet memories!! Feel free to share with us, we love seeing what you create using Paper House products!

Happy National Superhero Day!

Not to compare myself with a Superhero, but momhood definitely has the ability to make me feel like I can do ANYTHING! Especially when it comes to your kids. I’m on the blog today with a simple, fun, 20 minute layout using PHP’s beautiful Wonder Woman collection!

To complete this layout, I started out with blank white cardstock. From there, I cut out 2″ circles from the Tags Foil paper, all from the collection. I fussy cut the word “Fierce,” along with a couple of branding strip pieces, and some gold for the tiny background strips. I began layering different pieces, including the incredibly cute matching stickers, to form mini clusters.

Next, I cut a circle frame slightly larger than 2″ for my main photo in the center. I’ve recently become obsessed with free-form pen ink borders, so I threw a couple around the outside. To add a different texture, I added some stepped black splatter, and some quick journaling. And that’s it! Hope you try this one out!

What a Gem!

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the, very cool, Stargazer Collection by Paper House Productions.  I love the rich colors in this collection.  The purple tones are strikingly beautiful.  Pretty close to a real Gemstone!!!

April4a (2)

I used these photos, of my granddaughter experiencing the Indiana Page Program first hand.  She is a gem, our gem!!!  The inspiration, for this page, is the word gem.
The design is using two different papers from the Stargazer Collection, cutting one down the middle.  It is adhered, on the gemstone paper, along with border paper and washi tape, to create the center focal for the scrapbook page.  A small banner was created using papers and stickers from the Stargazer Collection.  I love how it showcases the focal photo. It screams special!!!

April5 (1).jpg

A journal pocket was created for the details of the day.   I used this spot also, to journal my thoughts, on this experience, for her and how proud we are of her.  I created another information pocket for the back of the scrapbook page.  I printed off information about the program, so others could read and learn about this opportunity.

April6a (2)

I covered a vintage library card holder, with the Stargazer papers and cardstock stickers, to create this easily constructed pocket, to hold information, tickets or extra photos.  So easy and looks so cute!!
This is such a gem of a collection and can be used to showcase all the stars in your life. Check it out~

I have one more scrapbook page to share.  This one was created using up left over scraps from the Stargazer Collection.  I love what you can create with a few cardstock stickers and paper.

Pieces of paper make for an easy little banner for the corner of the page.

So don’t throw away those bits and pieces!!  It doesn’t take much to create “cute”!!!

Starry Planter

Happy Earth Day!! This year for Earth Day, I decided on planting some Herbs. Planting your own food helps reduce your carbon footprint even in just the smallest amounts. So, what do any good herbs need? Glad you asked, a pretty pot!! I am in love with our stargazer collection and thought what would be nicer then a pot decoupaged in some beautiful card stock and card stock stickers! Here is a picture of my final project ,this project is super easy and shouldn’t take you more then an hour to complete in a few basic steps.

To make your own you’ll need some basic supplies

  • Herbs and Dirt
  • Terra cotta pot and saucer
  • Water proof decoupage
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Acrylic paint of your choosing
  • Paint brush
  • Die cuts from your favorite card stock
  • Card stock stickers!
  • Sponge brush

First I painted the rim of my pot with chalkboard paint. I chose to do this so I could doodle or label my herbs if I wanted and I liked the contrast of the black paint with the blue I had selected.

Next I painted the rest of the pot and saucer with my acrylic paint and waited on it to dry.

After your paint has dried using a sponge brush and the decoupage glue the die-cuts and stickers around your pot. I chose to cut out stars but any shapes you want will work. You can also cut the paper in strips and cover the entire pot with it. Make sure to work out any bubbles that may appear under the paper.

With your design glued and dried onto the pot, use the sponge brush again and cover the entire pot except the rim in the water proof decoupage. This will ensure your design will last!!

Lastly after your pot has dried plant the herbs you have selected. I have an 8 inch pot here so I planted 2 herbs, basil and cilantro. With your plants in some soil make sure to give them plenty of sunlight and water. Enjoy!!
