Let Freedom Ring

Happy Memorial Day! Today we celebrate and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. A few years back we went on vacation in Washington, D.C. and while there visited Arlington National Cemetery. I knew when I saw the Let Freedom Ring paper pad it would be perfect for documenting that special memory of our time at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Here is the layout I created:

Supplies Used: Let Freedom Ring Paper Pad

The papers in this pad were a perfect back drop for my photos, and I love that it also includes a 12 x 12 sheet of stickers for embellishing your pages. I used one of the cut apart papers to cut out this 4 x 6 flag to use as a backdrop for the larger sticker of the USA map. I then added my title directly on the map sticker placing it to the left of my photos to add balance. I tore the blue map paper to give the layout some texture and used these torn pieces as borders around my pictures. Here is a close up:

I then added my title under my pictures and embellished with a star sticker from the paper pad as well as some wood veneer stars. I finished off the bottom of the layout with two banners cut from one of the cut apart cards included in the paper pad. The pops of gold on some of the papers and the cut apart accents are divine and give your pages an elegant sparkle as shown here on the cut apart border I added over the torn map paper. Here is a close up:

I hope you have the opportunity to visit Arlington National Cemetery at some time and get to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as it is truly a memorable experience. Enjoy your holiday and I hope you are able to spend at least a little time in your craft space today! Happy creating!

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.

Thanks for stopping by~

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!
