With so many colors in the project pads, it made it very easy to find colors to coordinate with my decor. My dining room is designed around one of Monet’s Water Lilies painting and, yep, its painted purple….which makes this frame a wonderful addition to the room, and I have the perfect spot to hang it! I also loved adding the clear stickers for tails for some of my butterflies, gold accents, and some pops of teal (also in my dining room!)

Thank you so much for joining me today! And be sure to get one (or two) of these project pads…I promise you will find lots of uses for them!

Have A Lovely Day!

This month, we got to play along with a really, really fun and great product! I loved these Pen Blades…really! They are really great craft knives..in fact, I even found my husband checking them out while I was working, and since I had three he asked if he could have one! I used my Pen Blades to fussy cut some elements from the Baby Girl collection pack and I ended up creating not one, not two, but three 8X8 pocket pages for my neice’s baby album Im making for her.

The Pen Blades were a fabulous tool for fussy cutting the intricate flowers and banners to create 4X4 cards for my pocket pages.

Thank you so much for joining me today!

I have video to share as well showing how all these pages came together!

National Scrapbook Day – Hour Three – Giveaway

Hour 3: Happy National Scrapbook Day!  Today we are celebrating all things Scrapbooking related!  Each hour we will be sharing a new post with some inspiration combining Paper House products and our designer’s favorite techniques!

Of course we can’t have a celebration without a giveaway or two!  Stay tuned at the end of the post to find out what we’re giving away!  Now let’s hear from Sara!
——————————————————————————————

Sara Circle 2Hello Hello! I hope your NSD has been filled with scrappy fun! My favorite technique to share with you today is one that is artsy without being too messy and with out warping the paper! I call it the framing technique and it uses some Distress Ink…but only two colors! I paired my technique with elements from the Paradise Found collection of products. But before we get to that here’s a little about me:

What’s your favorite type of paper crafting? Scrapbook Layouts..its what I started creating first and its always what I love best!
Where do you go for inspiration? So many places!! I think the two biggest are Pinterest and You Tube..but I also really love the gallery at A Cherry On Top
Where do you do your crafting? Currently I scrapbook in our office/school room of our house. Until, recently, I had a dedicated room, but we needed it to serve as my youngest bedroom. I dont miss it a whole lot, just when I need to do a voiceover or edit a video
What are your favorite crafting tools? A good pair of sharp, detail scissors.
What are your favorite Paper House products? OH, those puffy stickers!!!
What are your favorite colors to work with? shades of aqua, minty colors
How would you describe your crafting style? I think I am pretty traditional, I like to create pages with good balance, and color, and I like design principles.
Do you like it quiet while you work or do you have music or tv on? I like quiet but I rarely get it… I usually have conversation and kiddos swirling around me.
What’s your go to snack/drink while you craft? Bottled water, hot tea…and maybe some chocolate.

Everyday Moments Planner Spread

sara-1 Hello Hello! Sara joining you today to bring some bright, cheery planner fun for your Monday! I chose to play with the Everyday Moments Planner and as soon as I opened my box, I knew it would be perfect for my plans. Instead of Dr. appts., and assorted other household plans, I wanted to use my planner as a place for me to keep track of me. I’m not a big writer, so I knew filling it with scrappy ideas, quotes I loved, thoughts on the weather, practicing my creative handwriting, and adding some small photos was the way I wanted to go!

The beginning of the planner has this great first page for each month. I started there, and used it as a ” Scrappy Musings” page-

The next page you find in the planner is a month-at-a-glance page..I decided to use that page to track my healthy habits…the things I try to do every day to keep me healthy-

20170310_080654 and ,finally, my weekly spread…messy, creative, fun, and lively…the perfect place to have fun, jot down my thoughts….and decorate with PANDAS!!!

I hope you have enjoyed this peek into my planner! And be sure to check out all the different planners and planner supplies in the Paper House Productions store!…I highly recommend these planners, they are so fun..oh, and the pandas!

Southwest Adventure Layout and Cards

sara-1

Hello Hello! Sara joining you today. I have a fun layout and some quick,easy, but eye-catching cards to share with you today using the Southwest Adventure kit…and a video tutorial for my layout…lots of cute projects so let’s get started!

I paired the papercrafting kit with some pops of white and some sequins to keep the layout from becoming too dark or heavy. The papers are white-based which makes them PERFECT for adding white for striking, high contrast pages!

dsc_4712

For my C.A.S. (clean and simple) cards, I used a white base but spiced it up with some ink and sequins and just the sticker sheet from the kit to creat some cute, fun cards!

Here are  some close-ups of my layout, showing some of the clusters I created by layering the stickers together. This gave them some depth and dimension and also some more interest!

Here is the link to my video-

I used this kit in so many different ways! I cut apart the papers to create borders…layered up the stickers, used the cut apart sheets for a journaling spot. I enjoyed this kit and all the deep, rich colors. This kit would also be perfect for boy layouts or if you like purple..there are some gorgeous eggplant purple colors in this kit. And the kit is so large I have plenty left for more fun projects!

Have A Lovely Day!

Cross-stitched Family Scrapbook Layout

Hello! Thank you so much for coming to visit me today! My name is Sara (Sara Scraps on just about all social media) and you can see read more about my work at my blog HERE !

I have a scrapbook layout to share with you today using the gorgeous One Big Happy Family collection! I love this collection. It is versatile, and the colors are just beautiful! I was inspired to add some stitching to my layout to give it a homemade, warm feeling.

I also added some elements from four different 3D Sticker packs and they added the perfect touch!dsc_4670

One Big Happy Family Supply List

I have a new process video featuring this layout up on my YouTube Channel today!

This cut apart card from the kit was just begging me to hand stitch it. So I matched up some embroidery thread to the colors on the card and cross-stitched away! It added the perfect touch and is a lovely addition to this layout!

dsc_4669
I hand cut banners and punched circles from some different patterned paper to create my own unique embellishments.

I hope you have enjoyed my layout today! I love to create my own embellishments and add layers and unexpected details to my projects and I hope you enjoyed what I created for you today!
