It’s a new month and that means Samantha is back with us for a new sketch to help get those creative juices flowing! Here’s what the sketch looks like:
With six spots for photos you can make quick work of an event! Samantha used it to create a birthday themed layout.
We’ve got some super girly layouts to share with you today featuring limited product and LOTS of color!
Samantha highlighted all the gorgeous colors in Color Washed with this paper in a BIG WAY! Clean and Simple so that the picture and the papers really shine!
Nicole put a BEAUTIFUL spin on hers really bringing out the purples in this collection.
Dreaming BIG and using cut files to complement the stickers and washi tape and patterned paper, Majken nailed it!
Life is What You Make of It and it looks like Carolyn is rocking it!

Last week you saw our team taking on the challenge of crafting with minimal supplies and showcasing the boys! This week we’re doing the same thing – using minimal supplies – but we’re showcasing the girls! Let’s dive into what the team has created!
Christine is starting us off with this layout that is exclusively the patterned papers from the challenge which are all in the Color Washed Collection! Here’s a video walking you thru how she made it:
Erica also focused a lot on the patterned papers but she also brought in some beautiful stickers and mixed media as well. Let’s check out her video:
Be sure to check back in later in the week to see what other creations our team came up with!
All this week our designer’s were challenged to work with a limited amount of products and create boy themed projects. Prepare to have your mind blown when you see what can be done with just a few sheets of patterned paper, one set of 3D stickers, and some Washi Tape!
Carolyn has been waiting YEARS to use these pictures! They could not be a better match with the Boy Mom 3D Sticker Set.
Nicole seamlessly combines 3D stickers and patterned papers to make this selfie layout! We love seeing moms on the scrapbook pages too!
How awesome to see Tara, one of our in house designers, working with the stickers she created! She also made use of this month’s sketch for her layout!
We love how inventive Sara got with her washi tape – using it to back both her title and subtitle!
In house designer Rebecca wanted in on the fun too! She captured her cute cat for this fabulous spin on the challenge!
Another creative use of the washi from Yvette! We love her choice of cut files that help bring that eye into the picture.
Never afraid of a challenge, Terri (our resident cardmaker), totally rocked this layout. You just can’t go wrong with circles!
Finally, Christine also go in on the action. She used this month’s sketch and created this layout for us on our Sunday night Live Craft Session over on Facebook.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this walk thru all these amazing projects! Check out the products by clicking on any of the thumbnails below:

Sketches are a great way to get a jump on a layout and create something fabulous! Samantha is joining us today to share the August sketch as well as her take on it!
We love how this is packed with some fun angles but is still simple enough for anyone from a beginner to an advanced scrapper to use! Let’s check out how Samantha used it for her Back to School Layout!
Join in the Fun!
Now we want to see what you can do with the sketch! Share your take on it with us over at Paper House Crafts on Facebook so we can be inspired too!
If you haven’t already started back to school then you are probably getting ready to. Today we have a whole slew of projects to showcase that will help you get ready OR dive into that new school year! Let’s hop on the bus for some fun!
What kiddo wouldn’t be thrilled to open their lunchbox or backpack and find these little notes of encouragement?!? Yvette combined our Enamel Stickers, 3D Stickers, and even Cardstock Stickers to create these!
We’ve all seen the Back to School layouts perfectly themed and jam packed with primary colors. Today, we don’t have those. Today, our designers thought out of the box and captured those memories with some of our colorful (but not school themed) collections!
We’re kicking off a week long feature of The Great Outdoors Collection. Today we are joined by Nicole with an 8 1/2 X 11 Layout!
A few weeks ago, I snapped these photos of Edward canoeing in the Severn. His friends were nice enough to let him borrow their canoe and Edward had a blast. He watched them do it and then he was off, exploring on his own and he learned how to stop and turn all by himself. He’s one smart cookie.
I added the “Great Outdoors” dimensional sticker at the top of the photo to help frame the photo. Then I used a few foam squares on the canoe sticker and mounted it onto the sticker. And just for fun, I tucked the tent sticker, slightly behind the title.
I used the frame sticker to frame the photo then added the word banner using foam squares. I used the tree as well to make the frame pop. For the bottom, I tore a piece of brown polka dot paper and tucked it beneath the photos then a used a piece of graph paper to journal my story and tucked it below the other photo.
I cut the banner journaling block in half then tucked it behind the photo on both sides for a fun design.
Thanks for visiting today!
If you’ve been to the beach this summer and have scrapbooking to get cranking on, then today, we have you covered! Our designers have been hard at work creating gorgeous Beach Themed Scrapbook Layouts using several of our beach collections and paper pads.
First Up is our Paradise Found Collection
A sunny day, turquoise water, a sandy beach, this must be paradise. If it was ever lost, we surely have found it, and are happy to celebrate it in this paper crafting kit. Drizzly days not included. Just sunshine and relaxation.
Yvette combined the Paradise Found Collection with 3D Stickers, Washi Tape, and Stickers from our Sundrenched Collection to make this Multi-photo layout!
Carolyn combined fussy cutting with a scenic background paper to make her sandcastle pictures pop right off the page!
Now let’s check out the Sun Drenched Collection
It’s amazing how certain colors can call to mind a host of memories. Take this Paper Pad, for example. We can almost feel the boardwalk beneath our sandals, hear the lapping of the waves on the shore, smell the fresh, salty sea breeze, all because of the vivid pinks and yellows and blues in this Sun Drenched paper pad.
Nicole showcases all the layers you can make with this Paper Pad! Sun Drenched is available in both a Paper Pad and in individual sheets and stickers.
Both Nicole and Sara are showcasing layouts that are 8 1/2 X 11 in size. It’s a smaller format that they have both found they like better. Sara used a tearing technique to mimic the look of waves on her layout.
Majken is kicking off her term with this colorful and detailed 12 X 12 layout. Take a close look at all the added details she gave to this including the beach scene along the bottom and machine stitching on her sunshine.
Finally we’re featuring the Sliced Beach Paper Pad
There are so many things to love about the beach, and they’re all featured in this Paper Pad. The bright colors evoke a sunny day lounging in the sand, with the sound of the surf and the cry of the gulls for background ambience. Go ahead. Get your feet wet.
Yvette created this layout and as you can see it features some rich colors.
