Color-Washed Quilted Hearts Cut File Layout

IMG_6923
Hey everybody! Khristina here with my final project for this design team term with Paper House Productions. I have absolutely ADORED being part of this team and working with these gorgeous projects. Make sure to check out my channel in the upcoming months because I have lots of goodies left that I want to keep on using. We were given the task to work with our favorite product this round and for me, that’s the gorgeous paper pads. Today, I am playing with backing a cut file using the gorgeous Color Washed Paper Pad and created some quilted heart details with little scraps of colorful paper.

I started off by cutting a 12×12 cut file down so that I only had the diagonal designs left. Then, I went ahead and backed all of them except two with patterned paper leftovers from the Color Washed paper pad.

For the remaining two largest hearts, I created a quilted effect. This is a super easy way to use up scraps and create an impactful look. You just start at the outside edges layering tiny pieces of paper around the edges until you have filled in the entire shape. Easy peasy!

I used the packaging technique to add just a touch of mixed media in coordinating colors to my background yardstick and then added just a couple of foam thicker for a title element. Last, but definitely not least, I grabbed the Color Washed cardstock multi-pack and pulled out all of the butterflies. I added some dimensional adhesive to their wings and it was the perfect finishing touch.

I would love it if you stopped by my channel and checked out the process video that goes along with this layout. Once again, I have absolutely loved every project and every part of the design team experience here and appreciate all of you so very much!

IMG_6923Today, I got to have a ton of fun by choosing a product that I have been wanting to work with and haven’t gotten a chance to yet. I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Sticky Pix Clear Cuts Adventure Awaits with Foil Accents . I didn’t intend to use the whole pack…but….109 stickers later, I am in love with this super fun custom background!

IMG_6922

I started out by tracing around a kitchen bowel (yep! very technical and sophisticated work) to create the orange background for my photo to be contained within. I knew that this was going to have to be pretty bold and not too busy because of the rest of my layout design ideas. I then used by sewing machine to add some stitching around the outside border of the page as well as around the circle element.

Next, it was time to go sticker crazy! I grabbed the sticker flip book and just started adding stickers to the entire background. I started with the biggest designs and moved by way thru all the way to the smallest designs.

Last step? I went ahead and added some patterned paper scraps behind my photo and a few more stickers from The Great Outdoors Camping Paper Crafting Kit on dimensional adhesive and the layout was complete!

Journey Notebook Insert: Book of the Month

Journey Notebook Insert: Book of the MonthWhen I saw the new Journey Books, I just knew that I had to use that for a new little reading project. I just recently joined the Book of the Month club and wanted a way to record my monthly selections and my thoughts on the books that I receive. This system was the perfect way to document those book selections in a quick and easy format and I just love the result.

 Journey Notebook Insert: Book of the Month

I knew that I wanted to create a repetitive format to my notebook insert that would allow me to quickly and easily document the book selection each month. Using the Life Organized planner stickers was just the perfect way to make that happen! For each page, I printed a 3×4 photo of that month’s book cover.

IMG_8087

Then, I backed each one with a coordinating color of patterned paper from the 12″ Marbelous paper pad. This added a little pop of color and then I added a clear sticker from the months of the year labels sticker pack right on top of the photo for each month.

IMG_8089

Then, I added a star chart underneath from the Star Gazer sticker pack that I could use to easily give each book a rating. I then added a small circular sticker and quote in the bottom right corner of each page from another of the creative journaling sticker books.

I even added a little detail to the front cover of the insert and I just love how things are coming together.

IMG_8090

I am really looking forward to having this quick and easy format to document my upcoming monthly Book of the Month club selections and thoughts. I would love it if you leave me a comment below with your ideas on how to use these inserts too!

Scrapbook Layout Featuring Wonder Woman Planner Stickers

PHP Intro ImageHappy March! I cannot believe how quickly this year is going already. How are you doing with getting your stories told? One story that I have been wanting to tell for awhile is about my nickname (Wonder Woman). As soon as Paper House Productions released their Wonder Woman products, I knew that I just had to use them to get this story told.

IMG_7095

This layout was sparked by this keychain photo. My kids bought me this keychain to help remind me how strong they think that I am and because they all call me Wonder Woman. Sometimes, this little reminder can definitely help make it through a tough day so I wanted to make sure that I documented this phase of life since everything seems to change so quickly.

IMG_7098

I started out by tracing a couple of plates from my kitchen to create the circles for the background that I wanted to hand-stitch. Then, I printed off an online coloring book page (these are great if you haven’t ever tried it) to use as a template for creating my paper-pieced Wonder Woman logo. That yellow paper is from the Sundrenched Paper Pad and it worked perfectly to create a subtle mixed media look without any mess!

IMG_7096

Next, I created a little flip tab on the top left corner and used by mini stapler to attach it the background. That gave me a perfect little home for this puffy sticker of Wonder Woman as well as a couple of stars.

IMG_7097

Finally, it was time for some embellishing and a title. I added stickers from the Wonder Woman Planner Stickers booklet all around my photo and then added some puffy sticker stars from the Justice League Chibi Heroes Puffy Stickers sets. A title and some journaling and this layout was complete!

I am really looking forward to playing with these licensed products even more as I have lots of superhero dress-up photos of my kids as well as Halloween costumes, plays, and a custom bat mobile bed that my little guy used to have…but those are stories for a different day! I hope that you enjoyed seeing how I documented my superhero nickname and I will see you again soon!

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut TitleHi everyone! Khristina here with another super fun project using those amazing new 12×12 paper pads. Today, I decided to combine elements from the Sun Drenched paper pad along with the Color Washed paper pad to create a unique oversized title element. The bright, bold colors in these two collections really worked perfectly with a black cardstock background and really created a fun look!

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

For this layout, I used some older chipboard letters as templates to trace around and create the letters from some of the amazing, bold patterns in the Sun Drenched and Color Washed paper pads. I wanted to emphasis the green, yellow, and blue colors from my two photos and there were so many perfect choices to work with! Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

I added a few embellishments from my stash as well as one of the sticker borders from the Sun Drenched paper pad to add some dimension and little details to my photos and hand-cut banners.

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching
I’m so excited to be back with another fun project including some stitching as well as the amazing and fun dimensional Destinations stickers. I really struggle sometimes with creating the perfect title page for a travel album and these stickers really jump-started my creativity.

 

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching

For this project, I printed an online image of the outline of the United States and used it as a pattern to create a hand-stitched version of the map on the top portion of my layout. I knew that the smaller detailed stickers in the Travel-Washington D.C. Destinations pack as well as the Travel- Let Freedom Ring Destinations pack would work as great city markers to indicate where our trip started and stopped on the map. It was easy to create a curved flight path with more embroidery floss between the two icons.

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching

I cut my photo to a 4×4 size and used more of the Destinations stickers from both packs to create some border details around the top and bottom edges. I then added some patterned paper banners and a few arrows as well as the eagle insignia to those banners. A few lines of journaling and a little washi tape border and this title page was complete!

I really hope that you will also join me over on my You Tube channel where I talk a little bit more about my product choices and how I created this look.

Camping Scrapbook Layout Featuring Hand Stitching

Camping Scrapbooking Layout Featuring 12x12 Paper Pad Details
I am super excited to be starting my adventure with Paper House Productions today featuring some of my favorite techniques. I was really inspired by the Marbleous and Color Washed 12×12 paper pads and knew that I wanted to use them to create a unique, hand-stitched element on my page. Hand-stitching is one of my absolute favorite design techniques!

Camping Scrapbooking Layout Featuring 12x12 Paper Pad Details

For this project, I printed an online image of a vintage trailer and used it as a pattern to create my own vintage trailer to include on my layout. The Marbleous paper pad was a perfect place to start with building the foundation pieces of my trailer. Then, I grabbed the Color Washed paper pad to include some bold accent details. I created a coordinating title element from the same paper choices and used my tab and label punches to create some embellishment clusters.

Camping Scrapbooking Layout Featuring 12x12 Paper Pad Details

I used the washi tape from the Summer Fun Life Organized collection to keep a subtle repeating design element throughout the layout. Adding a few puffy stickers and label stickers completed my look. I am SO excited about how this layout turned out and hope that you feel inspired to look at your paper pads in a new light!
