Hi Lisa here to share with you some quick and easy encouragement cards I made to keep in my purse using the Makes You Happy foiled paper from the Colorwashed collection. These cards do not open and on the back I like to add a piece of graph paper so I can hand write a personal note to the recipient. Here are my cards:
These cut apart cards make even the novice paper crafter look like a pro!! You can go SUPER simple with these cards like I did with this one. This card was just cut apart from the larger paper sheet and then I added a strip of washi tape from the Butterflies washi tape set along the side of the card. To dress it up even more and to bring out the gold foil on the word “happy” I added an offset faux enamel butterfly sticker! This fun quote is sure to encourage someone and brighten their day!!
On my next card I stepped it up a bit and added a stamped quote on a piece of graph paper mounted on card stock. I then embellished my stamped quote by adding a doily under the top left corner of the quote. I added two faux enamel butterflies to this card of different sizes and at opposite corners to add visual interest and offset the larger doily. Nothing adds a finished look more easily then washi tape. I added two strips of washi tape from the butterflies washi tape set & the Llama washi tape set to balance out the card. This shows you how well the washi tape from different collections works so well together!!
I hope these cards give you an idea of how you can make something look gorgeous with just a little bit of work. Remember many of the amazing Paper House products coordinate very well together to give your projects that stunning look of a a pro crafter who spent hours creating a special project! Why not create a few of these fun cards to keep on hand when your friends need a little pick me up??!!

Hello! Samantha here with you. In case you didn’t know, I am a full on lover of all things Harry Potter. However, even if you’re not a crazy fan like me, you probably have someone in your life who is. Today I’m sharing a Harry Potter card and matching envelope that you can create for that HP fan in your life.
I really wanted these cute Chibi stickers to take front and center, so I framed them with the Harry Potter™ Gryffindor Tags Foil Paper and some gold card stock. It’s hard to do these awesome faux enamel stickers justice in a photo, but (as I hope you can see) these stickers are framed in gorgeous shiny gold. There are so many cute Harry Potter Chibi stickers that you could easily customize your card for the recipient by switching out the characters I chose for your recipients favorite characters.
I used Harry Potter™ Hogwarts at Night Foil Paper for my background and layered it all on a black card stock base. I left a greeting off the outside of the card. This lends to the clean appearance and allows me to customize the greeting on the inside of the card to match the occasion. The final size of my Harry Potter card measures 6″ long by 3″ tall.
To complete this set, I created a matching envelope for the card. You can send fun patterned paper envelopes like this through the mail as long as the address is clear. I used the Harry Potter™ Planner Stickers to create space for both send to and return address.
This Harry Potter card and matching envelope may not be your Hogwarts letter, but it still should be a pretty fun piece of mail to receive!
Hey everyone, so altered things is another one of my favs to do. With it being back to school time you can usually get a good deal on composition notebooks so I grabbed one with a project in mind. My grandson is a dinosaur freak….he knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs (he is 9 and can talk about dinosaurs for the entire day lol)
So first I simply cut the paper to fit the cover of the notebook. I did cut it slightly bigger so I didn’t have to worry about putting it on the adhesive straight. Next I placed the adhesive sheet on the cover of the notebook.
I then puller them up by the tab (the adhesive will stay on the album) and placed the pattern paper on the cover. Next I opened the notebook and cut the extra off with my blade and i used a file just on the corners.
Now it was time to make it his by adding the dinosaur stickers and his name on the book. I added a little keepsake envelope into the inside for the extra dino stickers I didn’t use so he can place them anywhere in the notebook.I’m sure he will write all kings of things about dinosaurs in this book!
Hey everyone, Stacy here to share with you a fun mini album I created using the Paper House outdoor papers and of course the fun stickers & clips that go along with it!
So lets start with the cover…I love to use the cut apart sheets as embellies for my albums..and the clip and sticks were such a fun way to dress it up. I tied a little ribbon on the side.
Ok now we can dive inside….It’s not secret I love mini albums and pockets and flaps so…I created this mini album with some chipboard I had in my stash, i made some smaller pages to alternate between the bigger pages. We have a couple places for photo mats, journaling inserts and some fun stickers.
Some of the cut a parts I simply punched holes in to make them small additions pages within the album.
Ok so my next page…i’m getting into planners and the journey books, so I took a page out of a jouney book to create a custom mini album page. I used the stickers from The Great Outdoors planner set, and of course added a clip at the top.
Next another pocket with the slide out photo mat….the crazy thing is I don’t even camp but this line was so fun to work with!
So this next page it maybe a little hard to see but there is a clear pocket that the cut a part is inserted into.
Well I have to say if you love camping, fishing or anything outdoors this is the line for you. It is super fun to work with, the colors are awesome, and it would make a great way for you to display one of your outdoors trips.
Hello! Samantha here with you. We got a new puppy this summer, and he’s just so darn cute that I can’t help but take his picture…and now I’ve got to scrap those photos. Whether your K9 friend is a new puppy or just a puppy at heart, I hope my puppy layout makes you want to scrap your dog too!
Since Paper House doesn’t have a specific pet collection, I started with some fun dog themed stickers. I wanted a mix of textures and sizes, so I chose the You Had Me at Woof 3D Stickers and the Life Organized Dog Micro Stickers. I print my photos at home, so I printed 3 1/2″ x 5″ photos on 4″ x 6″ photo paper. I trimmed the photos down to give them a bit of a “Polaroid” look. Then, I used the Dog Micro Stickers to create a fun detail under the photos on the white border.
After I had my puppy stickers picked out, I raided my stash of Paper House collections for paper that matched. I decided that paper from the Great Outdoors collection coordinated with the stickers. I wanted a few more embellishments, so I reached for my Washi. Of course, I used the camo Washi from the Great Outdoors Washi Tape Set, but I also found that the orange and white Washi from Halloween Washi Tape Set was a great match, too! I also love that both Washi tapes have a metallic detail to them.
This puppy layout is the first of many, many dog layouts in my future. I can’t wait to see how else I can use Paper House to capture these memories.
Hi it’s Lisa here today to share with you one of my favorite things to use in my journaling bible…faux enamel stickers! These stickers have such shine and glam up any project! They also add dimension to your projects, but without all the bulk! This is great not only for bible journaling but for many other types of creative projects! When I was studying this verse I immediately thought of the beautiful Succulent faux enamel stickers.
I tend to like to journal only in the margins provided for me so I don’t like to use any stickers that are to large. The adorable glitter heart is from the 3D panda sticker set & is the perfect size to act as a lovely accent for my cactus. I love using the thin washi tape to break up my white space and separate my handwritten notes from the title I created using letter stickers. Here is a close up of the lovely gold foiled washi tape that is from the Summer fun washi tape collection, I use this washi tape a lot!
In this picture you can also see the lovely gold faux enamel butterfly sticker. I love how most of the sticker sets have stickers of varying sizes so you are able to have extra tiny ones to add in those little white spaces that just need a bit of sparkle or shine!! The micro stickers are also perfect for these tiny accents but this faux enamel butterfly sticker kept with the faux enamel look that the succulent stickers gave my page.
I would love to have you follow me on Instagram – I’m lisantexas there! I share a lot of different paper projects using the amazing Paper House stickers and other products there! You can also use my code PH19LISA to get 20% off your next sticker order!! Happy creating!
I’m excited to share with you my first time ever playing with planner goodies……i’m so hooked!!!! I’m going to share my month of August with you.
I’m using the fun PaperHouse/ML planner. The first week I would say was just basic. I used some washi tape, stickers, and sticky notes.
Week two I experimented a little more. I did a little doodling around the outside and adding some stamping in the corners.
I have decided that I like to put washi tape across the center of it to divide my day into morning and afternoon….not sure how others are doing it but that is the way i’m rolling right now (that may change) I have also started writing positive vibes at the bottom to get me through the week!!
I got a stash of Paper House goodies and picked out these fun little clips….love that added little embellie to my planner.
Well that is month one of my planner in the books….i’m super excited to get some planner time in to start on September!
Hello! Samantha here, and today I have something a little bit different for you. I have a set of 3 Marbelous birthday cards. I wanted to show you how many different options you have for card making with Paper House Stickers. All the cards use Marbelous paper as their base, they all use the same basic layout for the card, and they’re all even the same theme. However, by mixing and matching different types of stickers you get very different looks for each card.
Since I’m sharing 3 different cards today, I’ll share a photo of each individual card and list the supplies right afterwards.
This card is a bit more fun. I created texture by using a puffy clip for my focal point and a 3D sticker for my greeting. To create the border I paired a shiny silver rice paper with some cupcake washi tape.
This last card is completely whimsical, as I made it with my soon to be 5 year old niece in mind. A little rainbow rice paper is the perfect starting point for some magical stickers. This card uses mostly flat stickers (I sneaked in a small enamel heart) to make it easy to mail, but the fun faux enamel sticker adds a special touch to the card.
There you have it; a trio of Marbelus birthday cards.
