Everyday Planning

Hello everyone, TinaGale here sharing my November planner. I couldn’t function without a planner to keep my busy family’s schedule straight and it’s so much fun to use the beautiful planner and fun stickers. Fall is my favorite time of year so I have used up almost all of the new Autumn Woods collection I have decorating the November spreads.

Supplies used: Live Bold planner, Life Organized Autumn Woods puffy clips, epoxy clips, stick on pockets, epoxy stickers, puffy stickers, japanese rice paper, cardstock stickers, sticker flakes, sticker book, washi, functional stickers.

The weekly spreads give you plenty of room to document all your appointments and still add lots of fun elements like stickers and washi. I love mixing all the different products together to make fun pages.

If you keep your planners as a working planner be sure to check out all the fun functional stickers to keep your life on track. There’s four sheets in each pack and you get pastel and bold colors to mix it up even further.

Napkin Utensil Fall Holder Place Card 650

Supplies Used:  Autumn Woods Scrapbook PaperPumpkin Spice Scrapbook Paper, Autumn Air Scrapbook Paper, Autumn Woods Cardstock Sticker

fall napkin holder SVG cut file Paper House Productions Design

Here is a closer look at the completed double pocket utensil and napkin holder. I created the SVG file for the double pocket and then cut it out in plain green cardstock. I then used some of the gorgeous patterned paper to cut out some mats. Once that was done, I used some of the beautiful cardstock weight stickers to embellish. It was very easy and the results are fantastic.

Next I created a simple place card. I let the beauty of the patterned paper shine by cutting out a mat with that gorgeous border. I then added a few of the cardstock stickers and then wrote the name. Super easy. I let the stickers and paper do all of the work!

Project Pad Cards

Hello! Samantha here with you. Paper House’s Project Pads are super versatile and easy to work with.  I’m sharing two project pad cards with you today to showcase how pretty these pads are. At the end of this post there is also a link to a bonus home decor project using a project pad.

Supplies: Hearts ProjectColor Washed Paper Pad, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers, Family Planner Stickers

There are multiple sizes of hearts in the Heart Project pad. To create a simple focal point for a card, just layer up a few different sizes and colors of heart. Using dimensional adhesive helps take the card from “ok” to “wow” and gives it a more finished look. You can also mail cards using dimensional adhesive without having to pay any extra postage! Finish your card by adding sentiment stickers. I used some planner stickers on this card to make it a birthday card.

If you like using patterned paper, you can start your card with a pretty piece of patterned paper. Then choose some hearts from the project pad that coordinate with your patterned paper. Too keep everything from getting too busy, I used hearts that were very similar on this card. Group them together in the center of the card for a fun focal point. Add a clear sticker at the bottom for a seamless sentiment.

Want to see more of what you can do with Paper House’s Project Pads? Head on over to my blog today where I have this simple home decor piece featuring the Feathers Project Pad.

DIY Thanksgiving Table Decor

Thanksgiving in the US is coming up quickly and requires all kinds of ingredients for the perfect day. I knew I needed to start working on one ingredient:  cute decor for my table.  With just a few simple ingredients I was able to pull together an adorable turkey and some napkin rings: the most important ingredient being the Feathers Project Pad.  Christine joining you today to showcase my fun DIY Thanksgiving Table Decor.

DIY Thanksgiving Table Decor

Combining the feathers with a couple of circles, some Autumn Woods washi tape, empty toilet paper rolls, and enamel dots; I was able to make both the turkey and some napkin rings.  Here’s the whole process in a quick video!

I can’t even tell you how much fun it was to put this turkey together!  I love it when the project comes together and is just super fun!

PaperHouseTurkey3

Look at all those pretty patterns in the feathers! I love that the colors coordinate so nicely so that the patterns aren’t overwhelming.  In addition to the turkey I created some napkin rings using the same ingredients!

So there you have it, simple ingredients that come together to make some beautiful decor!

 

Hearts and Feathers Project Pad Cards

CarolynCircle2It’s Carolyn back today to show you 6 different cards using the hearts and feathers project pads. The project pads have heart and feather shapes that are easy to punch out. They are so easy to use and match so well with the Color Washed Paper Pad and the Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers. Making these cards was a piece of cake!

Supplies for Project Pad Cards: Hearts Project Pad, Feathers Project Pad, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers, Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad, Teacher Puffy Sticker.

I covered this card with gesso so the paint would not ruin the cardstock. I then dripped watercolors down the cardstock. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet.

For this card, I layered some punched hearts. I used a black Tombow marker to outline the hearts and add some fake stitching. The sentiment is stamped with black ink with a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

This anniversary card is all hearts! I love how hearts can make flowers. I used alpha stickers from the Color Washed Paper Pad.

For my final heart card, I used the Color Washed Paper Pad for the background and border stickers. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet and the twine is from my stash.

I combined the Feather Project Pad with the Teacher Puffy Stickers. How awesome are these patterns and colors?!

My last card is a combination of feathers and Bohemian Friends stickers. I love the layers that the feathers can make.

That’s all for today. I hope you’ve been inspired to use some hearts and feathers on your projects!

Easy Home Decor With DIY Project Pads

sara-circle-2

Hello Hello! I have a photo tutorial for you today showing how to create an easy home decor piece..so easy, in fact, that my 11-year-old son did most of the creating! Here is the finished piece..

 

IMG_3837

Supplies Used-  Feathers Project Pad

Step 1 and  2 – Paint a canvas (any size you like) with a thick, messy coat of heavy white acrylic paint…you want some texture…the more the better! After drying, apply random feathers from the project pad to the canvas, using a removable adhesive (oh, and choose designs you are less likely to want/need for another project)

Steps 3 and 4 – Spray your creation with a heavy coat of gold spray ink so it settles in all the cracks and crannies…leave to dry for at least 24 hours or until completely dry. Remove the feathers to reveal a negative image. Build your home decor piece from there, using more feathers, craft fun foam, and any other little notions you would like. thread, buttons, twine…anything to add interest and texture.

Finish by applying an appropriate quote, saying, or words of your choice. I chose to cut my scripture from black cardstock with my Silhouette but the options for this are endless!

Another great use for his project pad are clean and simple cards…Paired with some stamps, mist, ink, or sewing notions from your craft room can create a striking card in a snap…these two took me 10 min. including drying time!

Mixed Media with a Twist

Christine Circle 2Happy Halloween Eve – who’s ready to get spooking?  Our house is packed with excitement, but before I could take more pictures, I had to capture this memory from a couple years back!  As I sat looking at the Acetate Paper from the Wicked Good Collection, an idea came to my mind.  Join me as I show you how I incorporated it to do some Mixed Media with a Twist!

HappyHalloweenWM

Supplies Used:  Cobwebs Acetate Paper, Halloween Flake Stickers, Trouble is Brewing Patterned Paper, Ghosts Patterned Paper

Wanna know more about what this Mixed Media with a Twist is?  Check out this video where I walk you thru creating this spooktacular layout!

This picture shows you close-up some of the details of this layout.

The bootiful Acetate Paper made the perfect canvas for adding mixed media to my layout and I will definitely be incorporating this technique in the future.  How about those green foil eyes on the spider?!? Too Much Fun!  And of course that fussy cut ghost – those really helped pull the whole layout together.

Happy Haunting Friends!

Fun with fussy cutting!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! 🙂 Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made! I used the “Paradise Found Florida” collection on my page! 🙂

 

As you can see above in the collection, one of the papers has Palm Trees on it — I fussy cut the palm trees from the paper and used it on my page to create part of my background 🙂 By fussy cutting the palm trees out from paper, I was able to have places throughout my page to tuck in my photo and other embellishments!

And even those these are the “Florida” papers, I easily used this collection for my photo that was taken in San Diego, California 🙂
