Super Easy Cards with Faux Enamel Stickers

Maria Russell CircleI was approached by a friend of mine the other day and she asked me if I ever made cards using stickers and I answered, “Of course! But I haven’t made one for awhile!”.  This really made me think of my early paper crafting days when I had limited supplies and didn’t really have a lot of stamps.  Since I have just received some AMAZING faux enamel stickers, I thought I’d make some easy cards.


For my project today, I am showcasing the Brunch Faux enamel sticker, the Cocktails with foil accents faux enamel sticker and the Llamas with foil accents faux enamel sticker.  I also used the marble pattern paper from the Marbleous 12×12 paper pad.

I have a process video for you today and it is linked at the end of this blog post.  Here are the cards:

Didn’t they turn out so cute?  They are so easy to make.  I really love those stickers!  I hope you got inspired today to get your creative juices flowing, even with limited supplies.  Happy crafting!

Supplies used:  Marbleous 12 x 12 Paper Pad, Brunch Faux Enamel Stickers, Llamas with Foil Accents Enamel stickers, and Cocktails with Foil Accents enamel stickers.




A Day at the Beach – 12×12 Sun Drenched Paper Pad Collection

Maria Russell CircleHello my crafty friends! It’s Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you my process on how I made this Flip Book for my pen pal in Australia.  She loves the beach and the Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad collection, the Embrace Today Stick-on Pockets with the Carole Shiber Polka-Dotted Soft Pink and Honeydew washi tape would be perfect for this project.


I have a process video below to walk you through my process.  Here are some photos of the finished book.

Valentine’s Mailbox Treat Holder with Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad by PHP

Maria Russell CircleAre you looking for some last-minute gift ideas for Valentine’s Day?  Look no further.  Here’s an easy and fun Valentine’s Mailbox Treat Holder idea!   You can find these mailboxes at a craft store, or go to your local Target at the Dollar spot section.  I have altered my mailbox, using the beautiful Color Washed 12 x 12 Paper Pad by Paper House Productions.  You guys are all going to love this paper pad.  The pad comes with a sticker sheet that contains alphabet stickers, and other ephemeras.

I love making 3D projects for Valentine’s Day, especially making treat holders for my family and friends.  Valentine’s Day is always a special day at my house.  When my kids were a lot younger, I would surprise them by decorating the table with hearts, candles, confetti, and flowers!  I would also leave the little treat bags on top of their plates so that before they eat breakfast and go to school, they already have their treats with them.  It made their day.  It doesn’t matter how big or small the presents were but they were always happy to get a few treats to celebrate the day.  We also made treats for their friends!

Here are the photos of my finished project:






I have a process video for you today to show you how I altered this inexpensive mailbox that I found from Target.  It is super fast and easy, and it doesn’t require decoupaging.  I hope you like it.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have a wonderful day!

London-Calling Scrapbook Layout Destination Stickers by Maria

Maria Russell CircleHello my crafty friends!  Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you a scrapbook layout, showcasing the Discover London 3-D Sticker Pack and the London Calling 12″ Double-sided Scrapbook paper.  I love that there are endless possibilities to mix and match the coordinating travel sets, especially the Destination Stickers.  I really love the 3d stickers!



I started out by printing my photos using my Canon Selphy photo printer.  I cut them to size for my layout.

I decided to use the London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper to match the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.  I cut a 6 x 12 black card stock to cover half of the scrapbook paper to have a plain base to showcase my photos and the sticker.


I also used another black card stock to mat my Big Ben photograph and ground it a little so that it doesn’t look like it’s floating in the air.


I used another red card stock to mat the photo of my daughter and I standing in Leicester  Square while it was snowing, and journaled a little of how the day was going, where we were, and the date.


Here’s a close-up with the amazing Destination 3D sticker, and that England heart flag is super cute!  I also love the gold foil details on the Discover London sticker.


I thought it’s also appropriate to include the “Cheers” and the Red Tour Bus, also included in the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.


My daughter and I are huge fans of Sherlock Holmes so naturally, we had to see where he lived and thought that the Police Cap and the Red Telephone Booth would be perfect to showcase this spot.


I wish I can share more photos and use more stickers but I guess I will have to share it on another post.  We have definitely enjoyed touring London and this London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper with the Discover London 3D Sticker pack are the perfect combination to decorate my layout.

At the Beach Scrapbook Layout

Hello my crafty friends!  My name is Maria Russell and I am one of the newest members of the Paper House Productions design team.  I am super thrilled to be sharing a scrapbook layout showcasing the At The Beach 12 x 12 Paper Crafting Kit.  This pack is AMAZING as it contains card stock and puffy stickers to embellish my project.  I thought it’s perfect to showcase the photos that I took while my husband, daughter and I were in The Maldives in July of 2016.

I started out by printing a couple of my photos with my colored printer and cut these photos down to size.    When I do scrapbook layouts, I kind of just go with what I feel that day and I don’t overthink about making sure the lines and photos are all perfect!  It is after all, a handmade project!

I adhered the photos with my favorite adhesive and added some of the embellishments.  I LOVE the puffy stickers that were included in At The Beach Paper 12 x 12 Paper Crafting Kit.  Here’s what it looks like:

I also added the card stock stickers and journaling cards that are included in the pack:

I adhered the alphabet stickers and the rest of my embellishments to finish my design. Here’s what it looks like:

I hope you all got inspired today!  Don’t forget to check out the beautiful paper products available at  I also listed and linked the supplies that I used below.  Have a wonderful day!
