Scrapbook Layout Background Technique with Washi Tape

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here today!  I’ve got a fun little quick scrapbook page idea to share with you today, using Paper House washi tape to make your own background paper!

 

Washi and Ink Happiness PH2018

The cool background on this paper was just a plain color-washed orange….one of the papers from the Paper House Sun Drenched 12×12 paper pad.  Very pretty but I wanted to mimic the line of the horizon on the picture a little bit and add a little more interest to the background, so I used a roll of Paper House washi tape. So much comes on one roll, that you can use it for fun techniques like this and still have plenty for many, many projects!  So using the washi, I lined the paper in different widths with like you see here:

And after I did that…..I used a good blending ink and a sponge applicator, and applied it to the surface.  The washi tape, resists the ink of course…..so the result when the washi is removed is this awesome effect:

How fun is that?!!  So simple, but a lot of impact!  Washi tape has so many options!

Supplies Used:  Paper House: Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad, Sticky Pix CardstocksMarbleous, washi tape.  Other: Distress Ink

Printers Tray

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today and  I’m sharing a fun printers tray project using some great products from both Paper House AND Xyron….what a perfect combo!

This project starts with a whole bunch of Paper House and Xyron goodness…..

Xyron close up #1

They all come together to create this piece of home decor that captures our family trip to Arizona!

Call of the Wild XyronPH 2018

Paper House has great Travel 2D stickers for the states and the Succulent Faux Enamel Stickers work well with the desert vibe on this project.  Think outside the box when you are using stickers….in this set, many of the plants are in cute little clay pots.  Some were left that way, but some,  I trimmed off the cactus to use on its own and layered it into torn pieces from the Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad.  The Sticky Pix Clear Cuts are also a great way to add interest to a project, and being clear, they can go right on your photos as well.

Something that brings this project all together is the beautiful washi tape.   Love that the Paper House washi comes with a wide and narrow width tape in the same package!  You can layer it up on plain white or black cardstock to create backgrounds, borders, and also die-cut to create a project title.

Xyron close up #3

The Xyron Sticker Maker makes it easy to add adhesive to the letters, and if you need a little clean up of the extra adhesive, the Xyron Adhesive Eraser has got it covered….nothing like the perfect tools to bring a project together!

Xyron close up #2

All the individual squares and layers on this project are held together beautifully by the Xyron Tape Runner.   It has a strong adhesive that holds all the layers in place.

Supplies:  Paper House: Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad, Arizona Travel 2D Stickers, Stargazer Washi, Sticky Pix Clear Cuts, Succulent Faux Enamel Stickers, The Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Kit.  Xyron: Sticker Maker, Adhesive Eraser, Tape Runner.

Wonder Woman Planner 2018 by Laura C

The quality, colors and designs of the Paper House Life Organized stickers take your planning to a whole other level.  They are so cool with all the foil accents!

Wonder Woman close up #1

Here I’ve used a mix of the Karmabee washi, the Wonder Woman (TM) Life Organized stickers, and Sticky Pics Faux Enamels, and general stickers.  To make it your own….add some of your own doodles or drawings.

You can create a lot of interest by layering up the stickers like this pic in he bottom right corner….

Wonder Woman close up #2

All these different sticker types are made to go together so well they all look like they are from the same set!

Wonder Woman close up #3

You can make accessories for your planner using these Paper House Life Organized goodies too.   Using a basic gold paper clip from any office supply store, just make a couple of washi “flags” and then use the Faux Enamel stickers to add a fun element. And the best…..these stickers come with reverse images!  So you use the two reverse images together back to back…..no stickiness to worry about, the images line up perfectly to create the awesome clip to keep you even more organized!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are inspired to get yourself organized, using these great products from Paper House!  You can find all the Life Organized products and more in the store HERE.

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  It’s Laura here with you today!   Are you or your kids into the superhero craze?  Love Batman (TM), Superman (TM) , and all the other heroes?  Well, if you do, then Paper House has got you covered with their awesome 3D stickers and washi!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Smash, Pow…..these Justice League (TM) superhero cards are ready to bring birthday wishes, or congratulations, or even just a hello I’m thinking of you, and you are a superstar!  With 3D stickers and washi, you can create cute, quick and easy cards!

Ladies first…..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This card has a border of the thin washi that comes in the Superman Logo Washi Tape set and the center strip has the wide washi with the thin washi as borders.  The Supergirl (TM) 3D Justice League Chibi Heroes Puffy Stickers definitely give this card some “POW”!

Nanananana….Next is Batman (TM)!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

More super cute superhero in a card!  This one is layers of lovely thin and wide Batman (TM) Logo Washi Tape set on a piece of plain cardstock, then the edges are trimmed up and a circle punch used:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This creates the fun to highlight “Little Batman” (TM) and some smashing sentiments!

And last but not least:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s a bird, it’s a plane…..well….you know….lol.  How cute is this 3D puffy sticker Little Superman (TM)?  A few puffy sticker stars and a little washi, and this card is perfect to zip along those birthday wishes!

Wondering about the backgrounds on these cards?  I used some Distress Oxide Inks….they are applied to a mixed media mat, then sprayed with water, and then you drag basic white cardstock through the color on the mat.  Use a heat gun to dry, but you could air dry as well.  They make a great background for our superhero 3D stickers to soar!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop back for a lot of great inspiration all month long!

Supplies Used: Paper House:  Justice League (TM) Chibi Heroes Puffy Sticker, Batman Logo Washi Tape set, Superman Logo Washi Tape set.

Sun Drenched Just Beachy LO

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today to share a bright and “Just Beachy” LO created with the beautiful rich colored, foil accented papers, matching stickers, and alphas, found in the Paper House Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These paper pads have so much in them to play with with!! The great journal type cards you can layer up (the starfish and the “splish splash”) and also the cute stickers you can use for fun accents around your pictures.  The quality of the heavy cardstock stickers from Paper House is amazing!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The foiled papers are great to use as an accent….here I just cut a 2&1/2″ strip of the paper and then cut it into different widths.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They are arranged at different heights under the edge of the paper before being glued down.  A little tip to make them easier to work with….once I thought the pattern of the paper strips looked good, I gently lifted the paper mat, and used a strip of double stick tape to hold all the paper strips together.  Then I could move them around where needed to glue them onto the page, without having to worry about them shifting out of place.  I curled them up slightly to give them a little more of a fringe effect.

Another bonus is having matching alphas right in the Sun Drenched paper pad!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Cute and colorful….I love having matching alphas to add titles to my page…..how about you?  When I scrapbook, I tend to have one or two pages in a set of pictures that have journaling telling most of the story, for the other pages,  I like my title to tell the story.  It’s also great to have a couple of different alpha options included to make the title a little more interesting.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to check out all the fun inspiration this month using the Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad!

Color Washed Gift Set

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi there!  Laura here with you today sharing a project idea for a sweet gift for a friend, neighbor or just about anyone.  Good for a grad, or someone who just needs a pick me up, or thank you.  This is created with the Color Washed 12×12 Pad collection from Paper House.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a great journal set for someone to keep their goals, dreams or just random thoughts about what they are going through on a daily basis.

The gift box keeps the journal and any other memento the recipient would like, and is a reminder to keep a positive attitude….the Color Washed 12×12 pad is full of gorgeous papers in bright cheerful colors, along with journal boxes and border strips with positive uplifting messages!

P1012903(1).JPG

The inside of the box is decorated too to keep those positive vibes coming…..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next is the journal and gift card…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The sweet simple card was made using some of the scraps from creating the box, and also the stickers that are included in the Color Washed Pad….they look like gorgeous water-colored pieces of art.  You can keep the project simple and still make a bold beautiful statement.

The journal is just an inexpensive dollar store type notebook.  By adding the papers, stickers and a little ribbon, it turns into a pretty little journal better than most store bought journals.  If you want to add a little more pizazz, you can decorate inside the front cover (a little bonus inspiration!) and even add some of the small 2×2 squares that are also in the Color Washed pad to give little positive reminders throughout the journal.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure you stop by the Paper House website to take a look at all the 12×12 paper pads they have available.  They have a great selection, and with the stickers, journal cards, and gorgeous papers included you are ready to create multiple projects with just one paper pad!

Supplies Used: Paper House Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad; notebook, wooden box, enamel dots.

Destinations Stickers-North Carolina LO

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hello everyone!  It’s Laura here with you today, sharing a scrapbook page created with the Paper House Destinations Travel stickers.  These are great if you love to travel….about anywhere you go, they have you covered!

Destinations PHP 2018 Laura C

We travel to the beach in North Carolina every year, and of course I take a lot of pics to scrap!  These Paper House Destinations stickers have a great selection of different stickers whether it’s a road trip, a beach trip, or if you are just playing tourist and seeing some of the sights.

I did start this LO off with the Marbleous….one of the beyond gorgeous 12×12 paper pads Paper House has to offer.  It includes border strips….you can see where I layered some of those along the top and bottom edges of my page.  It also has a lot of gorgeous foiled papers, like the hexagon paper I used.  I cut it into 2 pieces, and fussy cut around one edge to give it the page a fun background.  Here is a picture before I added in the other layers and photos:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These marbled papers are truly stunning!  They make such a great backdrop for pictures, and there are so many different color palettes to choose from in this one 12×12 pad.

In this close up, you can see the foil, and better yet, you can see the amazing details in the Destination stickers!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Don’t you love the little license plate and the road sign?  Adorable!!  Do you take the pictures of the state welcome signs like I do?  Even if you don’t you can use these stickers!  They really layer up great too!

These Destinations sets also have a perfect little state outline sticker too.  It’s such a fun detail as you can see here:

Gone Fishin’ Decor-The Great Outdoors

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

 Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today, and so excited to share my first project for Paper House, a home decor wall hanging memory project using The Great Outdoors Fishing scrapbook paper collection kit!

Gone Fishin' Home Decor Laura C PHP2018

Scrapbooking is awesome and one of my favorite things to do, but home decor can be just as fun to create, and can still be used to capture and display your memories!  A great way to add pictures to a home decor project is to create a “pocket” for tucking in a photo by tearing the piece of paper, and layering it with a contrasting paper.  I used the wood grain paper with the fish hook paper behind it.  These gorgeous papers are all included in The Great Outdoors Fishing collection kit from Paper House.  There are  also great coordinating stickers in the kit–even the alphas are included!

These amazing I’d Rather Be Fishing 3D stickers have such cute details, like the actual fishing line on the pole, and the 3D realistic looking fish!   Fun to layer up with The Great Outdoors papers too, a lot of great designs you can use for fishing, camping, scouts….so many options!

Gone Fishin' Close up #2

I’m a huge fan of the journal boxes in this kit too….they are perfect for scrapbooking those “fish stories” and also for putting the finishing touches on this home decor project.  My guys can see this hanging on the wall and always reminisce about that fishing trip, and the memories of “one that got away”!

Gone Fishin' Close up #1

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are inspired to try a new way to capture those memories by creating some home decor!  The collection kits from Paper House make it so easy to do, I hope you give it a try!
