Gone Fishin’ Scrapbook Layout

Maria Russell Circle

I hope everyone’s having a great week.  Maria here on the blog with you today!  I am sharing a scrapbook layout, showcasing the Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit with I’d Rather be Fishing 3D stickers.  I have always wanted to use this Kit but never had a chance until now.

Here’s what I got to play with.  This Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit is a must-have!  It also comes with a 12×12 sticker sheet!

I chose the paper that I wanted to use for my layout and started planning where I wanted my photos to go.  I always do this step first every time I work on a scrapbook layout before I start adhering them onto the paper.  This gives me time to adjust them and plan on what embellishments I needed to finish my designs.

I matted my photos with black card stock and adhered them to my layout.

I started adding the embellishments to my layout and added the alphabet stickers that are included in the Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit.

I think a scrapbook layout should always tell a story.  Without it, it’s just a photo album!  I always like to write the story with my own handwriting as it gives it a more personal touch.  Hopefully my children will be taking care of these books when I’m gone, and they will be able to pass it on to my future grandchildren.

Did I mention I love the stickers from the I’d Rather Be Fishing 3D Stickers?   That little fish looks so realistic!

I absolutely LOVE the alphabet stickers that are included in the kit.  The title made a bold statement on my layout.

Laura is crafting up a Gift Card Holder……..

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

 

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today sharing a glittery sparkly gift idea using Paper House goodies and 3L Adhesives!

 

This project started with some amazing Paper House and 3L products:

3L Hop close up #1.jpg

All of these great items came together to create this fun gift bag!  I’ve added a lot of sparkle using the 3L Adhesives, and the Paper House Colorwashed Paper Pad and Faux Enamels stickers add their own bright colors and foiled bling!

3L and PHP hop by Laura C 2018 (2)

To create the sparkly stripes, the 3L Adhesive Crafty Power Tape was put on the cardstock:

3L close up #3

Then you remove the backing and apply glitter.  I did this twice to make two colors of stripes.  The adhesive is strong and holds the glitter in place.

3L close up #2

I also used the 3L Photo Corners to hold in place my gift card and this entire card fits nicely into one of the 3L Keepsake Envelopes!  They are clear little envelopes that are a perfect size to hold memorabilia for scrapbooking, but also great to hold and protect a gift card as an extra little surprise on this gift bag!

The cute little tag at the top has a sweet little flower created with the 3L Adhesives 3D Foam Shapes.

3L close up #4

You just peel off the backing, sprinkle with glitter, and stick it to your project…..what could be easier?!

Supplies Used: Paper House-Colorwashed 12×12 Paper Pad, Faux Enamels.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: 3D Foam Garden Shapes, Keepsake Envelopes, Creative Photo Corners, EZ Runner Strips, 3D Foam Circles, Crafty Power Tape.

Let’s Dig into Gold Foil with Heather…

Heather Little Circle (1)

Hello friends! Heather here with a super fun way to add some sparkle to your scrapbooking layouts! First you can just buy paper with glitter or foil already on it. Or you can add it yourself!

We are teaming up with scrapbook Adhesives by 3L this week and I was super excited to play with their 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. So for my layout I knew I wanted to use the gold foil sheet and the Marbelous paper pad.

Pinterest-Inspired Cards Using Washi Tapes

Maria Russell CircleIt’s Maria back on the blog today!  I have been looking for some inspiration on Pinterest and decided to make some super easy and quick cards with some beautiful Washi tapes from the Paper House Productions!  Have you all checked them out yet at the shop? Holy, moly those Washis are so beautiful!   I feel like they need to be showcased more than just adding it to decorate your planners and notebooks.

I am so fortunate to be a design team member of Paper House Productions because not only to they make beautiful paper pads and stickers, these Washi Tapes are to die for! Look at how beautiful those prints really are, and with foiling!  Love, love, love them all! Here’s what I got to play with:

IMG_7889

For my first card, I started out by cutting my smooth white card stock to 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  I layered the StickyPix Stargazer Washi Tape with the Wine Washi Tape set and die cut the card stock with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Frames Die.   I also used my Bow punch to punch out the pieces to create my bow with a gold-foiled card stock to match the washi.

IMG_7890

I adhered my front panel onto the card base with my Xyron Tape Runner first, then adhered the gold bow on the foreground using a bit of hot glue.  I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment onto the card.

IMG_7891

Here’s my first card:

PHPWashiCard2

 

The stargazer washi tape set is one of my favorites.  I just love the gold foil details and the color is just simply beautiful!  Here’s a little close-up of the card:

 

PHPWashiCard2A

I wanted to create a birthday card for my second project with the same design.  This time, I used the Wine Washi Tape Set which is going to go perfectly with the sentiment.  A friend of mine is turning 60 and she’s a bit bummed about it.  This card will hopefully cheer her up!

PHPWashiCard1

 

Isn’t this hilarious?  I just LOVE this Wine washi Tape Set and I think adhering it on a white card stock made the images pop!

I hope you all got inspired today to create some super simple and quick cards using some beautiful Washi Tapes.  The supplies I used are listed and linked.  Have a wonderful day!

SUPPLIES:  Stargazer StickyPix Washi Tape Set, Wine Washi Tape Set, Neenah Solar White Card Stock, Bow Punch, Xyron Tape Runner, My Favorite Things Anything But Basic Friendship stamp set, My Favorite Things Uncorked stamp set.

Welcome to the Color Me Happy Blog Hop!  We’re pairing up with SpiegelMom Scraps all week long for some colorful projects showcasing out collections and their sequins!  We’ve got a great giveaway so be sure to stick around to the end of the post to get more details!

Today we are showcasing Maria’s creations!

Maria Russell CircleHello my crafty friends.  I hope you are all having a great day!  I am super excited because this week, the Paper House Productions design team is teaming up with Spiegelmom Scraps.  We have received some colorful sequin mixes from Spiegelmom Scraps and I thought I would make two shaker cards, showcasing the sequin mixes and some beautiful faux Enamel and Puffy Stickers from the Paper House Productions.

For my first card, I used the Party Puffy stickers, the Puffy Numbered Candles stickers and the Rainbow Bright sequin mix, with some items that I already have from my collection.

PHPSMSCard1

 

For my second card, I wanted to create an underwater scene with the Mystical Mermaid Faux Enamel stickers and of course the colorful sequin mix from Spiegelmom Scraps.  If you watch my YouTube process video, you will be able to see how I created this scene.

Katie King CircleHi everyone! I don’t know about you, but I love cute stationary! Anytime I am at the store, I can’t help but wander down the office supply section to see what is new. With that being said, cute stationary can be a bit pricey. This can especially be true if the stationary has some sort of ‘’cool element’’ to it, like it being holographic. So, to save you money on stationary, while also providing you a super easy way to make your own, I give you today’s DIY!

Today I am going to be showing you how to make your own Mini Shaker Notebooks! These mini shaker notebooks are a great way to dip your toe into the ”shaker card world” if you have been wanting to try something new. I opted to go the mini notebook route because 1) they looked so cute and 2) they were the perfect size for the motivation phrases in the Color Washed 12” Paper Pad. Besides the Color Washed Paper Pad, I also used a bunch of adorable sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps!

Now, when making your own mini shaker notebooks, I do recommend using SpiegelMom Scraps sequins. This is because the sequins are the right size for the mini notebooks and come with at least 3 different sequins ”types” in the pack. For example, in the pack ”Because You Love Me”, you get the colors antique gold, dark red, and copper metallic. Due to that, I was able to pick out more gold sequins for my mini ”make ideas happen” notebook and remove some of the red sequins.

This is just something you might want to keep in mind when making your own mini shaker notebooks.

Mini Shaker Notebooks Featuring Spieglemom Scraps

To create your own Mini Shaker Notebooks featuring SpiegleMom Scraps, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Take the cover all off of your mini notebook and set the pages/back cover to the side. Then grab your craft knife and cut out a small square in the middle of your front cover. Once the small square has been cut, glue a piece of paper from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad to the front cover. Finally, recut the small square and (using an awl) poke through the holes at the top of your mini notebook.

When you are done with this step, you should have something like the above photo.

Step 2

Step 2: Flip your font cover over, so you are viewing the back. Then cut a piece of a clear plastic sheet that is big enough to cover the square hole. Once your piece of clear plastic has been cut, apply double-sided tape around all four edges of the square and apply your clear plastic. Finally, grab your SpiegelMom Scraps sequins (I used Because You Love Me) and sprinkle a small amount in the center of your clear plastic sheet.

Note: You will only want to use a small amount of sequins in this project. If you add too many sequins, you will not get the cool shaker effect. Also, don’t worry how the back looks because we will be covering it up.

Step 3

Step 3: Cut out a phase from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad and another piece of scrapbooking paper that will fit your mini notebook. Then, using your favorite adhesive, glue down the phrase first, then add your final piece of scrapbooking paper.

When you have added your pieces of paper, poke through the holes at the top of your mini notebook.

Once your mini notebook cover has dried, reattach it to the rest of mini notebook and you are done!

 

 

Mini Shaker Notebooks Featuring Spieglemom Scraps 3

I love how each of these Mini Shaker Notebooks turned out! I think my favorite one would be the mini ”never give up” notebook.

Now, if you are loving the other two mini notebooks I made, you can easily make them as well! The only thing that is different about these two mini-notebooks is the SpiegelMom Scrap sequins. All the paper/motivational phrase came from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad and below is the specific sequins I used.

  • Mini ”life is what you make it” Notebook: SpiegelMom Scrap – Sprinkling Kindness
  • Mini ”never give up” Notebook: SpiegelMom Scrap – Peachy Keeny

Here Comes the Justice League!

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.

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.

 

 

 

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.
