Christmas Joy = Christmas cards!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today, and I wanted to share some Christmas cards I made for my daughter’s teachers! Every year, we give them each a Starbucks gift card for Christmas, and I made these cards to put them in.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with the ‘Christmas Joy’ collection, and believe it or not I used only TWO sheets of paper to make these EIGHT cards! Paper House Productions tag paper was perfect for my cards, because there was just the right number to work on my cards!

13

The journal tags were also perfect to add just a touch of stickers to my cards!

14

I also wanted to make sure each card said ‘Merry Christmas’ on them, so I added a strip of washi tape to the bottom of each one!

Mixing and Matching Collections – Autumn Scrapbook Layout

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie here with you today sharing a layout I made! One of the things that I LOVE about Paper House Productions is how versatile their products are! I love mixing and matching their collections, because they work so well together!  Here’s how they came together for an Autumn Scrapbook Layout.

For my layout today, I mixed papers from ‘The Great Outdoors’ collection with embellishments from the ‘Autumn Woods’ collection! They work perfectly together!

The little critters in the ‘Autumn Woods’ collection are just ADORABLE!

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 🙂

 

 

 

 

Making the paper work for you!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today sharing a little tip on how to OVERCOME your fear of using certain papers!

If you are like me, you look at ‘photo’ background papers and get a little intimidated! If you add your photos to it, you will lose part of that background, or if you add them to certain parts of the paper, then you feel you are limited to what you can add!

31.jpg

I started out with these papers from the The Great Outdoors – Camping Collection – and while I LOVED that photo themed paper on the right, how was I going to add my things to it, without losing the depth of the paper!??! Well — I CUT OUT what I wanted from the paper of course!

30

Once you have fussy cut the paper, you can easily assemble your photos UNDERNEATH the cut out parts and keeping the integrity of the design!

35

Once you have your photo(s) in place and the piece that you cutout placed just right – you can adhere it and then finish your page!

So next time you are intimidated by photo background paper, just give this a try!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie here today with a project I made using the ‘Autumn Woods’ collection!  I found these little glass jars at an antique store, and I knew I wanted to dress them up for Fall!  Let’s take a look at my Autumn Woods Altered Jars.

And here is what I turned them into!  I used various stickers from Autumn Woods as well as patterned paper to decorate the jars.

The little woodland creatures add a nice touch to the collection.  The puffy stickers were a great way to add some dimension to the project.

I lined the top with a rice paper border that has beautiful foiling on it.  Next time you are at  store and see a cheap, plain jar; grab it!  Make it your own with your paper crafting supplies.

 

Autumn Woods Scrapbook Layout

Hi everyone! Julie here today sharing a layout I made using the gorgeous ‘Autumn Woods’ collection!  Fall is my favorite season, which is pretty funny, since I live in Arizona, and it feels like ‘summer’ here for 6 months out of the year, so I do live for those cooler ‘Fall’ days we have here! Because it is my favorite season, I have always gravitated towards Fall themed scrapbook papers, and the ‘Autumn Woods’ collection is seriously my fave! The colors are gorgeous and I love the designs! Let’s take a look at my Autumn Woods Scrapbook Layout

Color Washed Scrapbook Layout

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made using the Color Washed paper collection along with the Summer Memories collection! I was so excited to receive the new Paper House Productions collections! The colors are so vibrant and gorgeous!

When I chose the photo for my layout, I just knew the background paper I picked was perfect, because as we all know, ‘Shrek’ takes place in ‘Far Far Away’ and the paper I chose just felt medieval to me! 🙂

A few years ago, we visited the Ronald Reagan museum in Simi Valley, California.
