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.

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!

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

Next is the journal and gift card…

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.

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

Valentine’s Mailbox Treat Holder with Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad by PHP

Maria Russell CircleAre you looking for some last-minute gift ideas for Valentine’s Day?  Look no further.  Here’s an easy and fun Valentine’s Mailbox Treat Holder idea!   You can find these mailboxes at a craft store, or go to your local Target at the Dollar spot section.  I have altered my mailbox, using the beautiful Color Washed 12 x 12 Paper Pad by Paper House Productions.  You guys are all going to love this paper pad.  The pad comes with a sticker sheet that contains alphabet stickers, and other ephemeras.

I love making 3D projects for Valentine’s Day, especially making treat holders for my family and friends.  Valentine’s Day is always a special day at my house.  When my kids were a lot younger, I would surprise them by decorating the table with hearts, candles, confetti, and flowers!  I would also leave the little treat bags on top of their plates so that before they eat breakfast and go to school, they already have their treats with them.  It made their day.  It doesn’t matter how big or small the presents were but they were always happy to get a few treats to celebrate the day.  We also made treats for their friends!

Here are the photos of my finished project:

I have a process video for you today to show you how I altered this inexpensive mailbox that I found from Target.  It is super fast and easy, and it doesn’t require decoupaging.  I hope you like it.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have a wonderful day!

I also love the addition of the Kawaii Flake Stickers. They are such cute little elements to make your layout or any project special!

Candy Dish Featuring The Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers

Katie King CircleHi everyone! Valentine’s Day is almost here which means you are probably seeing bags of candy every time you turn around. If you have a sweet tooth like me, then you may be tempted to buy one or three bags of candy (on sale of course). Now, if you happen to have some candy on hand, you may be looking for a cute way to display it during the holiday season. If this is you, then you will love today’s project!

In today’s project post, I am going to show you how to make a Candy Dish featuring the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers! The cool thing about this project is that we are recycling an old candle jar to use as our candy dish. You may be wondering why I would use a candle jar and not a normal plastic or glass jar. Well, if you think about the past fall or winter season, you probably have several nice size candles laying around. I bet some of those candles were expensive, so why not give them new life as candy dishes.

The stickers I chose to use in this project was the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers. I chose to use them in this project because 1) they look like the perfect conversation heart and 2) add great dimension to the candy dish, since they are puffy stickers!

Candy Dish featuring the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers

To create your own Candy Dish featuring the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Sticker, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Clean out your candle jar. Now, depending on the size and the amount of wax in your candle jar will most likely affect how you remove the wax from your jar. For my candle jar, I let my candle sit in a warm place (to soften the wax) and then carefully removed the wax with a plastic knife. After the wax was removed, I then cleaned out the candle jar using soap, water, and Goo Gone (which is perfect for removing any waxy residue).

Step 2

Step 2: Once your candle jar has been cleaned out, its now time for the fun part, decorating!

Grab your Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers and begin playing around with how you want them to look on your candle jar. When applying your puffy stickers, think about all the different ways they could look on your candle jar. For example, you could apply the puffy stickers in a random pattern, you could just have them lining the bottom portion of the jar or apply them in rows.

As you can see in the photo above, I decided to cover my entire candle jar by applying the puffy stickers in small (vertical) rows of 4.

When you have added your stickers, and are happy with how your candle jar looks, you are now ready to fill it up with some delicious candy!

There is nothing better than a project that is super easy to make and is basically foolproof when recreating it! I think, besides making these candy dishes for yourself, they would make such cute gifts for your friends or co-workers.

One final thing I wanted to mention was the size of the candle jar. In the last photo, I wanted to show you how this project looked on a smaller scale and with different stickers. For that candy dish, I used the Flowers Micro Stickers and apply the stickers only to ¾ of the jar. This particular style, I think would be perfect if you are considering making these for your friends this Valentine’s Day season.

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.

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

I really had a blast playing with these bold colors and I hope that you will stop by and check out my video for even more details into how this page came together! I would love to see what you create and challenge you to use a dark-colored background to help bold colors pop off the page!

London-Calling Scrapbook Layout Destination Stickers by Maria

Maria Russell CircleHello my crafty friends!  Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you a scrapbook layout, showcasing the Discover London 3-D Sticker Pack and the London Calling 12″ Double-sided Scrapbook paper.  I love that there are endless possibilities to mix and match the coordinating travel sets, especially the Destination Stickers.  I really love the 3d stickers!

 

IMG_6677

I started out by printing my photos using my Canon Selphy photo printer.  I cut them to size for my layout.

I decided to use the London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper to match the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.  I cut a 6 x 12 black card stock to cover half of the scrapbook paper to have a plain base to showcase my photos and the sticker.

IMG_6678

I also used another black card stock to mat my Big Ben photograph and ground it a little so that it doesn’t look like it’s floating in the air.

IMG_6679

I used another red card stock to mat the photo of my daughter and I standing in Leicester  Square while it was snowing, and journaled a little of how the day was going, where we were, and the date.

IMG_6680

Here’s a close-up with the amazing Destination 3D sticker, and that England heart flag is super cute!  I also love the gold foil details on the Discover London sticker.

I thought it’s also appropriate to include the “Cheers” and the Red Tour Bus, also included in the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.

PHPLondon2

My daughter and I are huge fans of Sherlock Holmes so naturally, we had to see where he lived and thought that the Police Cap and the Red Telephone Booth would be perfect to showcase this spot.

PHPLondon3

I wish I can share more photos and use more stickers but I guess I will have to share it on another post.  We have definitely enjoyed touring London and this London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper with the Discover London 3D Sticker pack are the perfect combination to decorate my layout.

Hidden Souvenir Storage Featuring The Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers

Katie King CircleHi everyone! Whether you are an avid traveler or only travel every so often, one thing is for sure, everybody loves collecting souvenirs. Now, we can probably all agree that souvenirs, though fun to collect and share, do take up a good amount of space. If you are someone who travels, all of those postcards and little replicas of monuments, can add up fairly quickly. So, to solve this storage dilemma I came up with a fun way to store your items while also displaying your travels.

In today’s project post, I am going to show you how to make some Hidden Souvenir Storage featuring the Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers! If you are not familiar with the Destinations Stickers, they are basically a group of stickers that have a certain destinations theme. For example, today I will be showcasing the Travel-France 2D Stickers which features cathedrals, museums, and vineyards in the sticker packet. I will be using these stickers to decorate a paper mache box which can be used as hidden storage for your souvenirs items, while also acting as a decorative home décor piece.

Hidden Souvenir Storage Featuring The Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers

To create your own Hidden Souvenir Storage, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Paint your paper mache box and set it aside to dry.

Step 2

Step 2: Cut a piece of scrapbooking paper from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad that is a bit smaller than the lid of your box. Once your piece of scrapbooking paper has been cut out, glue it down to the lid of your box.

Now, grab a mini clothespin and glue it down to the spot where you would like to display a photo or postcard from your trip. Then gather up your Travel-France 2D Stickers and begin playing around with how you want them to look on the lid of your box. When you are happy with the placement of the stickers, press them down firmly into place.

Step 3

Step 3: Take your lid and lay it flat on your work surface. You will want the back of the lid to be facing you, like in the photo. Then grab the body of your box and apply some strong adhesive to one of its sides. Then take the body of your box and press it into the lid.

Refer to the above photo to get a better idea of how it should look.

When your pieces are put together, you are now ready to fill up your box and add it to your bookshelf!

For my hidden storage box that is about France, you can see that I displayed a postcard from Paris on the front of the box and used the storage part in the back to hide some souvenirs/mini photo albums. I think this storage method is a great way to not only display photos from your trips but it helps to keep all your souvenirs (from one particular trip) in one place.

Scrapbook Layout Featuring Destinations Stickers

Heather Little Circle (1)

Hello lovely friends! Heather here with a 12×12 layout featuring the amazing destination stickers. They are perfect for all of your travel themed layouts! I created a layout about a road trip that my family took in the summer of 2017.

fullsizeoutput_149e

The destination stickers worked great for my layout! I also did some hand stitching on this layout that I think turned out great! I didn’t want to over embellish because I used a ton of photos on this layout! I also pulled in some paper and stickers from the 12×12 Color Washed paper pad. I used a sheet of paper to mat my whole layout on as well as a tiny mat around each photo! Below will be a list of my supplies used as well as my process video for this layout, I hope you will check out how this layout came together featuring the Destination Stickers! Thank you so much for stopping by today to check out my layout and video!

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!
