Decorative Candy Box

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! How many times does someone (either a friend or co-worker) do something for you or help you out in some way? Do you ever wish that you could give them something special as a mini thank you? Well, I recently had this happen to me and I wanted to thank my friend for my making an awesome recommendation. So, today, I am going to show you how easy it is to turn some plain candy boxes into an extra special thank you gift!

I got the idea to do this project when I wanted to thank a friend for recommending an accountant for my business. I had been trying to find a good accountant for a while and my friend ended up recommended a great accountant for my small business. As a thank you, I wanted to get her some of her favorite candy. However, instead of just giving her the boxes of candy, I wanted to make them extra special!

To do this, I decided to use the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and combine some of the regular scrapbooking paper along with one of the scrapbook quotes This project was super easy to put together and probably took me less than 20 minutes. Also, adding the scrapbooking paper really made the regular candy boxes look a bit more ”fancy”!

To create your own Decorative Candy Boxes, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Measure the front of your candy box and cut out a piece of scrapbooking paper that fits those measurements. Then cut out one of the quotes that can be found in the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad.

For my candy box, I used the ”Enjoy Every Moment” quote and a sheet of the green/gold marble paper.

Step 2

Step 2: Attach your main paper piece to the front of your candy box (I used Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots by 3L). Then punch two holes on either side of your scrapbook quote.

Step 3

Step 3: Run some embroidery thread through your scrapbook quote and tie it around your candy box.

Once you have tied off your embroidery thread, simply fill out a thank you card, and you are ready to give your gift!

I loved how this project turned out and I think its such an easy way to make a simple gift a bit more special!

Before I go, I did want to mention one tip about the candy boxes.

You may have noticed, that there were two candy boxes stacked together in this project. If you decide to give away more than 1 box of candy, my tip would be to add five Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots (one in each of the corners and one in the middle) on the top of the second candy box. Then add the first candy box on top of the second candy box. By doing this, your candy boxes will stay together and not slide around.

Glam Fishing Featuring The Great Outdoors Fishing Kit

image

Hi everyone! I’m here with my last layout for my term as a design team member here at Paper House Productions!  I had so much fun working with this amazing group!  I have a layout featuring The Great Outdoors Gone Fishing Paper Kit.  When I originally received this in my DT package I went through and printed out a bunch of fishing photos.  Today’s is one of my favorites!IMG_4680

I started this layout thinking that I was going to use the beautiful ombré blue paper with fish hooks as my background.  That’s one of my favorite papers in this collection.  But as I pulled in some of the cut aparts I soon found that I needed a white cardstock barrier to allow the other elements of the page to stand out.

IMG_4679

I chose 2 cut aparts that are 4×4 size to stand on either side of my photo.  I then pulled the colors I wanted to use out of the Catch of the Day card.  I used some of the rice paper border stickers to adhere the cards to the page.  This pulled in more of that color.  I used the sticker sheet from the Paper Kit to add part of my title “GLAM” in the woodgrain alpha on the sheet.  I used another cut apart card and fussy cut the “fishing” part of the title.

IMG_4678

Then I decided to go nuts with the 3D stickers that come in the kit.  I added them to both of the cards.  Then I decided that I needed a little more interest around my design.  So I pulled in the Life Organized Sports Fan Micro Stickers.  The colors of these stickers match perfectly with the colors I was using.  I chose to use all star stickers and just put them around the main part of my layout to create a sort of border.  Then I added some of the puffy stickers to finish it off.  I absolutely love how this came out!

Planning in a Traveler’s Notebook

Caitlyn Storm Circle Hello everyone! It’s Caitlyn up on the blog today and I can not believe that it is my last post with Paper House Productions on the design team! This opportunity has been absolutely amazing and I’m so sad that the Winter/Spring term is ending. I have learned a lot and I have grown a ton on my journey on the design team and I am so glad that I got to be among so much talent.

During my time with Paper House Productions I have had a lot of time to work with a ton of different products. However I never touched one specific product – the journaling stickers. I am such a huge planner, but for some reason I never picked them up! That definitely needed to change and after using these stickers – totally in love!

Planning in a traveler's notebook

I have no idea why I haven’t used the journaling stickers sooner. They are absolutely amazing and look great with whatever you create! These stickers make planning in a traveler’s notebook an absolute dream and I can’t wait to use these even more. I knew I didn’t need two pages devoted to planning this week due to a crazy work schedule so I decided to throw in some memory keeping as well! I love that the Journey Books give the freedom to truly create whatever you’d like! Some weeks I just want to memory plan and some weeks I want to plan. In this case I figured both would work out well!

Planning in a traveler's notebook

I absolutely adore that the journaling sticker sets are all made with a clear matte material. I love matte stickers since they’re super easy to write on and these just look great! There are so many different options in each set that it’s very easy to mix and match the

TravelersNotebookPlanning3

The Monday night I decided to use as my memory keeping was absolutely beautiful. When I was flipping through the Be Happy paper pad, I spotted the Make Life Magical deco piece and it was absolutely perfect. I went through some of my other products and spotted the moon and stars puffy sticker from the Great Outdoors line and felt that would be a cute accent. Into the book it went!

Products Used: Nashville Journey Book, Be Happy 12″ Paper Pad, Great Outdoors Puffy Stickers, Weekly Creative Journaling Stickers, Monthly Creative Journaling Stickers, Trackers Creative Journaling Stickers

Color-Washed Quilted Hearts Cut File Layout

IMG_6923
Hey everybody! Khristina here with my final project for this design team term with Paper House Productions. I have absolutely ADORED being part of this team and working with these gorgeous projects. Make sure to check out my channel in the upcoming months because I have lots of goodies left that I want to keep on using. We were given the task to work with our favorite product this round and for me, that’s the gorgeous paper pads. Today, I am playing with backing a cut file using the gorgeous Color Washed Paper Pad and created some quilted heart details with little scraps of colorful paper.

IMG_7202

I started off by cutting a 12×12 cut file down so that I only had the diagonal designs left. Then, I went ahead and backed all of them except two with patterned paper leftovers from the Color Washed paper pad.

IMG_7204

For the remaining two largest hearts, I created a quilted effect. This is a super easy way to use up scraps and create an impactful look. You just start at the outside edges layering tiny pieces of paper around the edges until you have filled in the entire shape. Easy peasy!

IMG_7205

I used the packaging technique to add just a touch of mixed media in coordinating colors to my background yardstick and then added just a couple of foam thicker for a title element. Last, but definitely not least, I grabbed the Color Washed cardstock multi-pack and pulled out all of the butterflies. I added some dimensional adhesive to their wings and it was the perfect finishing touch.

I would love it if you stopped by my channel and checked out the process video that goes along with this layout. Once again, I have absolutely loved every project and every part of the design team experience here and appreciate all of you so very much!

xoxo,

Khristina

Today I’ve got a birthday LO to share using the Birthday Faux Enamel Stickers:

Enameled Birthday PH 2018 by Laura C

The Paper House Faux Enamels are so bright and colorful, they are a great match for the Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad that has such rich, beautiful colors that really pop. It makes for a simple, cute layout when you use the journal box page and mat on a contrasting color paper to make this grid type LO.

Enameled close up #1

You can use the Faux Enamels as photo accents as I did here….sticking it right to the photo.  The details on these stickers are amazing!  Look at the adorable birthday cake with it’s little candles, and each sticker outlined in a pretty gold that give it the enameled look. So many cute stickers in one package of the Faux Enamels!

The colors even coordinate well with the Paper House Emoji Birthday 3D Stickers…..it adds a nice touch with the faux enameled packages.

Gone Fishin’ Scrapbook Layout

Maria Russell Circle

I hope everyone’s having a great week.  Maria here on the blog with you today!  I am sharing a scrapbook layout, showcasing the Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit with I’d Rather be Fishing 3D stickers.  I have always wanted to use this Kit but never had a chance until now.

Here’s what I got to play with.  This Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit is a must-have!  It also comes with a 12×12 sticker sheet!

IMG_8415

I chose the paper that I wanted to use for my layout and started planning where I wanted my photos to go.  I always do this step first every time I work on a scrapbook layout before I start adhering them onto the paper.  This gives me time to adjust them and plan on what embellishments I needed to finish my designs.

IMG_8416

I matted my photos with black card stock and adhered them to my layout.

IMG_8418

I started adding the embellishments to my layout and added the alphabet stickers that are included in the Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit.

IMG_8419

I think a scrapbook layout should always tell a story.  Without it, it’s just a photo album!  I always like to write the story with my own handwriting as it gives it a more personal touch.  Hopefully my children will be taking care of these books when I’m gone, and they will be able to pass it on to my future grandchildren.

Did I mention I love the stickers from the I’d Rather Be Fishing 3D Stickers?   That little fish looks so realistic!

PHPGoneFishin1C

I absolutely LOVE the alphabet stickers that are included in the kit.  The title made a bold statement on my layout.

Faux Enamel Pins featuring Faux Enamel Stickers

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! This month, the design team was asked to make a project using one of our favorite products from Paper House. I have been on the design team for almost six months and in that period, I have used Paper House’s scrapbooking paper, washi tape, stickers, planner supplies, and more. However, even though all of Paper House’s supplies are equally as amazing, there is one that is my absolute favorite. That my friends is Paper House’s Faux Enamel stickers!

If you are not familiar with the Faux Enamel Stickers, they were released earlier this year and are so adorable! Each Faux Enamel Sticker pack has a specific theme and contains about 10 to 13 stickers which are very vibrant in color. Besides the colors being vibrant, each sticker is lined with a hint of gold which gives the whole sticker an extra ”pop”.

Since the Faux Enamel Stickers are my favorite product, I thought it would be fun to combine my favorite product with one of my favorite collectibles. That collectible being, enamel pins! So, today, I and going to so you how to turn these Faux Enamel Stickers into Faux Enamel Pins!

Faux Enamel Pins

To create your own Faux Enamel Pins, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Grab your favorite Faux Enamel Sticker pack and stick them onto some sturdy cardstock. Once you have added your stickers to the cardstock, cut them out.

When choosing your stickers for this project, there are a few things that you should keep in mind:

1. Choose stickers that can easily be cut out and that don’t have that much negative space. For example, in the Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker pack above, the coffee mug would be diffcult to turn into a pin because of the negative space between the steam.

2. Consider what type of pin blanks that you have for your stickers. For example, if you have a long bar pin blank (see an example in step 3), you would not want to use it on a small short sticker.

Above, I am using the Glamping Faux Enamel Sticker and Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker pack.

Step 2

Step 2: Now apply a thin coat of Dimensional Magic to the top of your Faux Enamel Sticker. When applying the Dimensional Magic, you may want to have a toothpick handy, so you can pop any air bubbles. At first, the top of your enamel sticker may look ”cloudy” but that’s ok because it will dry completely clear.

After you finish applying the Dimensional Magic set your enamel sticker aside to dry for 24 hours.

Step 3

Step 3: When the Dimensional Magic is dry, flip your enamel sticker over and glue on a pin blank (I’m using a long bar pin blank) and set them aside to dry.

Once your enamel sticker pins are dry, you are ready to wear them!

Faux Enamel Pin 1

Faux Enamel Pin 2

Once you are done creating your enamel pins, you can easily wear them, display them, or add them to a plain bag!

With that in mind, I would be careful with these ”pins” since they are still stickers and not actual enamel.

In the last picture, you will see that I number each of the pins. Below, I listed the specific Faux Enamel Sticker pack, that the sticker came from.

1, 2, 7: Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker

3,9: Kawaii Faux Enamel Sticker

4, 8: Glam Fashion Faux Enamel Sticker

5: Pandas Faux Enamel Sticker

6: Glamping Faux Enamel Sticker

10: Paris Faux Enamel Sticker
