I began with these two pictures of super excited children eagerly awaiting their gifts. I really love the Christmas Memories paper so I used it as my background. I cut out the wreath with my Silhouette Cameo using the Peace Joy Love paper. Next I layered the stripe paper behind my photos. On the other side of the photos, I used the poinsettia stick on pockets. The holly leaf stick on pocket is perfect for holding one of my pictures.

Can you find the flake stickers on my layout? They blend in so perfectly, it is hard to tell they are not part of the pictures. The star on the tree, the Santa hat, the holly leaves and four of the presents are flake stickers.

To finish the layout I used a 3D title and pulled the puffy clip present off the clip to add dimension. There are also cardstock stickers for some sentiments, the date and star embellishments.

Make sure to stop by the Paper House Shop to pick-up some Christmas goodies! Have a wonderful, scrappy holiday season!

Christmas Joy Cards

CarolynCircle2Hello! Carolyn here to show you three really fun Christmas cards. I used the Christmas Joy Life Organized collection. All three cards required my Silhouette Cameo and corresponding files from their store to cut the images. I just love how they turned out!

This snowman card is a piece of 12 x 12 white cardstock folded and then cut in half. I cut a square of the stripped paper and a slightly smaller square of brown paper. The first layer of the snowman is brown, then white, then red. I finished it off with some buttons and google eyes from my stash and Life Organized puffy stickers.

windowcardPH

The window card is a layer of red paper, then white, then brown. The reindeer, trees and green strip are from the rice paper border stickers. The stars are a mix of epoxy and puffy stickers and the sentiment is from the cardstock multi pack.

candycanecardPH

The candy cane card is a layer of brown paper that I back-stitched with embroidery thread before adhering it to the white cardstock. I cut those candy canes a few times before getting the stripes to line up the way I wanted! The center stickers are 3D and the surrounding stars are epoxy stickers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now I just need to decide who gets to receive these cards!

Hearts and Feathers Project Pad Cards

CarolynCircle2It’s Carolyn back today to show you 6 different cards using the hearts and feathers project pads. The project pads have heart and feather shapes that are easy to punch out. They are so easy to use and match so well with the Color Washed Paper Pad and the Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers. Making these cards was a piece of cake!

I covered this card with gesso so the paint would not ruin the cardstock. I then dripped watercolors down the cardstock. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet.

heartfriendcardpaperhouseproductions1

For this card, I layered some punched hearts. I used a black Tombow marker to outline the hearts and add some fake stitching. The sentiment is stamped with black ink with a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

HeartCardPaperHouseProductions1

This anniversary card is all hearts! I love how hearts can make flowers. I used alpha stickers from the Color Washed Paper Pad.

For my final heart card, I used the Color Washed Paper Pad for the background and border stickers. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet and the twine is from my stash.

FeathersTeacherCardPaperHouseProductions1

I combined the Feather Project Pad with the Teacher Puffy Stickers. How awesome are these patterns and colors?!

My last card is a combination of feathers and Bohemian Friends stickers. I love the layers that the feathers can make.

That’s all for today. I hope you’ve been inspired to use some hearts and feathers on your projects!

Fishing Scrapbook Layout with the Great Outdoors

CarolynCircle2It’s Carolyn here today with a fishy layout for you. Did you get to enjoy the great outdoors this summer? I got to spend lots of time at the lake so I have lots of memories to document. I’m so in love with the new Great Outdoors Collection. There is a camping set, a hunting set and a fishing set. I used the fishing set to document my daughter’s attempt to make a catch. She didn’t have any luck but it was a beautiful day and lots of fun. I’m going to show you how I put this layout together.

Supplies for Fishing Layout: The Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit, Outdoors Puffy Stickers, Outdoors Flake Stickers

I began by choosing three photos of our fishing trip. Since two of them were similar, I decided I would separate the page into two sections. I love how the top picture fits the boat. I played around with paper options and decided on these three as my background.

fish2PH

I used a piece of white cardstock as my base. I trimmed my papers using the cardstock as a size guide.

fish3PH

I pondered matting my photos with the orange paper but decided it would be too much. So I trimmed the sides off the layout and added orange down the sides.

fish4PH

I added my photos and the cardstock frame sticker. The sentiment is a cut apart card trimmed to fit the frame. There were three cards that fit but I finally settled on this one because the green color balanced the layout.

fish5PH

I added some blue paper behind the frame to finish the background.

fish6PH

Now the fun part – embellishing! I used many of the 3D stickers that come in the kit and some Great Outdoors puffy stickers. I tried to draw the eye from right to left diagonally across the top half of the page then left to right across the bottom. I made sure to use the “one that got away” sticker since my daughter didn’t catch anything. And how cool is that fishing rod? I used some flake fish stickers on the end. The final touch was to add some journaling at the top along with the date.

There you have it! I just love the bright colors in this collection and the pretty patterns. I already have ideas for the rest of my kit. Thanks for following along the tutorial and have a great day.

Fall Themed Bookmarks

CarolynCircle2

Hello crafty friends! It’s Carolyn here today with some fall themed bookmarks. I made two as thank-you gifts for a teacher and another to celebrate fall. If you have bits and pieces of a collection, this is a great way to use them up and add a handmade touch to a gift. Not to mention who can’t use another bookmark?!?

bookmarks4PH

For the fall bookmark I layered two papers from the Autumn Woods collection. I cut out the sentiment from another paper and decorated with cardstock and epoxy stickers. I used a hole punch and added some matching twine.

bookmarks2PH

For this teacher bookmark, I used the new Great Outdoors papers for the background. Then I mixed a bunch of school themed stickers. I love how the planner stickers, puffy stickers and mixed stickers all look together.

bookmarks3PH

For the final bookmark, I used a paper from the Color Washed Paper Pad. Then I cut the packaging paper off the mixed stickers for the lined paper. I topped it off with a mixture of stickers.

That’s it for me! I hope you have a moment to check out all the fun stickers and papers in the shop and don’t forget to put those leftover supplies to use!

Fall Themed Traveler’s Notebook using Autumn Woods

CarolynCircle2Carolyn back again to show you the Autumn Woods Life Organized Collection. I used a traveler’s notebook to document a trip through a neighbour’s property. He is 95 years old and has the coolest yard in town. We visited during the fall so this collection is perfect for this adventure. I completed three different spreads in the notebook.

Autumn Woods Traveler's Notebook

I used a little bit of everything in my notebook and mixed in alphas and papers from other collections too. The first spread has some fussy cutting of the leaves and the pretty stick-on pocket. For the second spread, I used Lake Life papers and a cut file to create the background. I wanted something that looked like a maze so this tree cookie was perfect! Again, I think I almost used one of everything in this collection on this spread. The Life Organized products are great for a traveler’s notebook since planners are about the same size.

Autumn Woods Traveler's Notebook

This is my favourite page with the washi tape acting as a border and the guffelwarf pictures! I hope you take a moment to read the journaling and check out how cute the different products look all clustered together.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Great Outdoors and Lake Life Scrapbook Layout

CarolynCircle2Carolyn back again to show you how I used the Life Organized Planner Products on a scrapbooking layout. Our family visited Wisconsin Dells last year and these pictures show a stop along the boat tour. The Great Outdoors products were perfect to highlight the ruggedness of my pictures and the Lake Life collection provided papers that worked well as my base.

I used washi tape to separate the top and bottom half of the layout. The trees in this photo are flake stickers and epoxy stickers.

witchesgulchPHP2

Here is a close-up of the puffy clip tree. I attached it to a stick-on pocket. The leaves are flake stickers and the remaining stickers are a mix of epoxy and puffy. I cut the title from paper in the Lake Life collection using my Silhouette Cameo.

witchesgulchPHP3

Here is one last close-up of the other stick-on pocket and puffy clip. The multicolored arrows are rice paper stickers that helped me to cover a sentiment that didn’t go with my theme.

Thanks for stopping by! I just love how well these two collections work together and hope you will give it a try!

Bubble Layout with Color Washed Paper

Carolyn here today to show you the new Color Washed Paper Pad! The watercolor backgrounds are so beautiful and bright. I can see this becoming a go-to paper pad in my collection.

Supplies for Bubble Layout: Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad, Butterfly Project Pad, Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad.

beautifulbubbles3PH

I began with these bubble pictures and liked how the gold foil on the paper looks like bubbles. I found a cut file that looked “bubbly” and cut it from more gold color washed paper using my Silhouette Cameo. I backed the bubbles using cut apart cards from the paper pad.

beautifulbubbles4PH

I fussy cut the multicolored butterflies and the “wild and free” circle. The title, flags and arrows are all stickers that come with the paper pad. You can see a little bit of the purple Marbelous paper peeking out in this close-up.

beautifulbubbles2PH

I added a couple more butterflies from the Butterfly Project Pad to balance the page. I love how the Project Pad coordinated with the Paper Pad and the butterflies just pop right out. No need to use a cutting machine or fussy cut.

Thanks for looking at my layout today! Enjoy the last little bit of our summer bubble blowing weather.

A Traveler’s Notebook Using the Travel Craft Set

CarolynCircle2

It’s Carolyn here today to show you a traveler’s notebook I made using the Travel Craft Set. I always bring a boring old notepad on my trips so I thought it would be fun to dress one up. I really like how it turned out and now I need to go on vacation so I can use it!

Supplies for Traveler’s Notebook: Travel Craft Set.

travelnotebook5PH

I began with this notebook. First I removed the coils. Then, I traced the size of the notebook on the back of one of the sticky sheets in the craft set. I stuck the sheet to the cover and wrapped it around so it began and ended on the back of the cover.

travelnotebook3PH

I added the 3D embellishments that came in the kit and used the alphas for my title.

travelnotebook4PH

I wrapped a cord from my stash around the cover to finish it off and then replaced the coils.

travelnotebook2PH

There you have it! Easy-peasy! There is also a lot left over in the craft set so I will be using it to decorate the inside of my notebook during my travels. Thanks for checking out this post and happy travels!

Friendship Cards with My Sentiments Exactly Stamps

CarolynCircle2

Hello paper fans! Carolyn back today with two friendship cards showcasing the beautiful Be Happy Paper Pad and My Sentiments Exactly Stamps. They were so easy to put together and now I have some cards ready to make the day of some special friends.

Friendshipcards2PH

Supplies for Friendship Cards: Paper House Productions Be Happy Paper Pad, CS Y220 Friendship Cards Clear Stamps by My Sentiments Exactly.

 

FriendshipcardsgoodFor this card, I folded a piece of 8.5′ x 11′ white cardstock. I cut the flowers from black cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. The ovals in the large flower are the negative cuts from the small flowers! I used two different ribbons from my stash and used the flower stickers that come with the paper pad. The sentiment is stamped using white ink. There were enough sentiments in the stamp set to personalize the inside of the card.

 

friendshipcardsgood2This card is the same as the other card but this time I used fussy cutting for the flowers. I love how fancy the stamp sentiment looks on this card! I could never have written something so pretty.

I hope you will take a moment to click on the supply lists above. My Sentiments Exactly has so many stamps to choose from you can’t go wrong. The stamps stuck really well to my clear block and were very easy to clean with water. But most importantly, the stamped images were clear every time.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to say hello to a special friend today!
