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.

Faux Enamel Pins featuring Faux Enamel Stickers

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! This month, the design team was asked to make a project using one of our favorite products from Paper House. I have been on the design team for almost six months and in that period, I have used Paper House’s scrapbooking paper, washi tape, stickers, planner supplies, and more. However, even though all of Paper House’s supplies are equally as amazing, there is one that is my absolute favorite. That my friends is Paper House’s Faux Enamel stickers!

If you are not familiar with the Faux Enamel Stickers, they were released earlier this year and are so adorable! Each Faux Enamel Sticker pack has a specific theme and contains about 10 to 13 stickers which are very vibrant in color. Besides the colors being vibrant, each sticker is lined with a hint of gold which gives the whole sticker an extra ”pop”.

Since the Faux Enamel Stickers are my favorite product, I thought it would be fun to combine my favorite product with one of my favorite collectibles. That collectible being, enamel pins! So, today, I and going to so you how to turn these Faux Enamel Stickers into Faux Enamel Pins!

Faux Enamel Pins

To create your own Faux Enamel Pins, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Grab your favorite Faux Enamel Sticker pack and stick them onto some sturdy cardstock. Once you have added your stickers to the cardstock, cut them out.

When choosing your stickers for this project, there are a few things that you should keep in mind:

1. Choose stickers that can easily be cut out and that don’t have that much negative space. For example, in the Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker pack above, the coffee mug would be diffcult to turn into a pin because of the negative space between the steam.

2. Consider what type of pin blanks that you have for your stickers. For example, if you have a long bar pin blank (see an example in step 3), you would not want to use it on a small short sticker.

Above, I am using the Glamping Faux Enamel Sticker and Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker pack.

Step 2

Step 2: Now apply a thin coat of Dimensional Magic to the top of your Faux Enamel Sticker. When applying the Dimensional Magic, you may want to have a toothpick handy, so you can pop any air bubbles. At first, the top of your enamel sticker may look ”cloudy” but that’s ok because it will dry completely clear.

After you finish applying the Dimensional Magic set your enamel sticker aside to dry for 24 hours.

Step 3

Step 3: When the Dimensional Magic is dry, flip your enamel sticker over and glue on a pin blank (I’m using a long bar pin blank) and set them aside to dry.

Once your enamel sticker pins are dry, you are ready to wear them!

Faux Enamel Pin 2

Once you are done creating your enamel pins, you can easily wear them, display them, or add them to a plain bag!

With that in mind, I would be careful with these ”pins” since they are still stickers and not actual enamel.

In the last picture, you will see that I number each of the pins. Below, I listed the specific Faux Enamel Sticker pack, that the sticker came from.

1, 2, 7: Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker

3,9: Kawaii Faux Enamel Sticker

4, 8: Glam Fashion Faux Enamel Sticker

5: Pandas Faux Enamel Sticker

6: Glamping Faux Enamel Sticker

10: Paris Faux Enamel Sticker

Journey Book Layout with Heather

Heather Little Circle (1)

Hello friends! Heather here with a fun layout using my Journey Book! I absolutely love working in this size notebook to document photos that don’t need a whole 12×12 layout. I have had so much fun creating in this notebook and taking it places with me!

I went with a different color scheme for me this time too! I used orange and yellow with some pops of gold. I used papers and stickers from the marbleous collection. This collection happens to be my favorite! To see my whole process on how I created this layout please head over to my youtube channel and check it out!

Clear Sticker Backgrounds=Travel Fun!

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.

IMG_6921

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!

I would love to have you stop by the process video and check out how this fun layout came together.

The 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit made it so easy to create the beautiful wings and make sure they stayed upright! The foam is double sided so you’re able to apply the foam to one side and then stick things down and onto your project. This can be seen by the small circles I used to frame the quote – so easy!

Now let’s get the fun started with Katie!

****************************************************************

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! One of my favorite things to buy at arts and crafts shows is handmade signs! This is because I love how an artist might hand write a quote or draw an adorable illustration. I have tried making my own handmade signs but since I’m not a great drawer and I don’t necessarily care for my handwriting, they have always turned out a little odd. So, how do we solve this problem? Well, we get out our favorite adhesive tools and stickers!

Today, I am going to show you how to create a Sparkle Wooden Sign using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! If you are unfamiliar with Scrapbook Adhesives they are a company that designs adhesives for the crafting industry. Some of the products they are best known for are their tape runners, mounting squares, 3D form products and adhesive dots. In today’s project, I will be using their tape runner and adhesive dots.

This Sparkle Wooden Sign is designed to be super easy to put together. For instances, to create this sign, I used a pack of Paper House’s enamel stickers. These stickers were my main focal point and I literally apply them in the same pattern that they were in on the sticker sheet. By doing this method, I didn’t waste time on figuring out a design and I was able to create a cute sign in under 30 minutes!

Sparkle Wooden Sign with Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L

To create your own Sparkle Wooden Sign, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Cut out a piece of scrapbook paper that will fit your wooden sign. Then, using the Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner, glue your paper onto your wooden sign.

For my wooden sign, I used a piece a scrapbook paper from Paper House’s Color Washed 12’’ Paper Pad.

Note: I did paint my wooden sign before I began this step. However, painting your wooden sign is totally optional.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab your sticker sheet and begin adding each sticker to your wooden sign. While doing this step, you can either place your stickers (on your wooden sign) just like how they are on the sticker sheet or you can make up a whole new design.

For my wooden sign, I used Paper House’s Lucky Cat Faux Enamel Stickers.

Step 3

Step 3: To add some sparkle to my wooden sign and to tie in the gold enameling (that is around the stickers), I decided to add gold glitter using Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots (0.2 in or 5mm size).

To do this, all I did was add 7 dots in random places on my wooden sign. Then, I sprinkled some chunky gold glitter on top of the adhesive dots and tapped off the excess.

Once you are happy with how your wooden sign looks, simply add some wire or a piece of ribbon to hang your sign, and you are done!

I love how this Sparkle Wooden Sign turned out! I think a small sign like this would look so cute as part of a gallery wall, on a cork board, or even hanging in an office.

If you make your own wooden sign, I highly recommend that you use Scrapbook Adhesives products. This is because there is practically no drying time and you can easily add embellishments (like glitter) without needing to wait for everything to dry.

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!

Washi Tape Coasters & Giveaway Winner

Katie King CircleHi everyone! Two things that I can’t get enough of is washi tape and coasters! Washi tape is just one of those craft supplies that you can always use more of and making your own coasters, is just so much fun. On my own blog, I have made coaster sets from clay, wood, calendars, sequins, and more. However, I never thought of combining my love of washi tape with making coasters, until today!

Today, I am going to show you how to make your set of Washi Tape Coasters featuring the Stargazer Washi Tape Set! These washi tape coasters are so easy to make and are the perfect project to create if you are a beginning crafter. This is because the washi tape coasters can be made in 3 steps and only require a few craft supplies.

To make the coasters, I used Paper House Production washi tape! The great thing about using Paper House’s washi tape sets, is that you get both a wide and thin washi tape. Also, Paper House has a variety of washi tape that you can easily mix and match with each other. For this project, I chose to mix and match the Stargazer Washi Tape Set with the Wine Washi Tape Set, to get a galaxy look!

Washi Tape Coasters

To create your own Washi Tape Coasters featutring the Stargazer Washi Tape Set, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1:  Tear off pieces of washi tape and apply them to your coaster in the pattern that you desire. For my coasters, I used the wide purple tape in the Stargazer Washi Tape Set and the thin gold tape in the Wine Washi Tape Set.

Once you have covered your coaster, trim around the edges to remove the extra washi tape.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab a paint pen that matches your washi tape (I used gold) and paint the edges of your coasters. Once the edges of your coasters have been painted, set them aside to dry.

Step 3

Step 3: When your coasters’ edges have dried, grab some Mod Podge (I used Glossy) and paint a layer over each of your coasters. Adding a layer of Mod Podge will seal in the washi tape and add a protective top coat to your coasters.

Once your coasters have dried, you are now ready to use them!

Washi Tape Coasters 2

I loved the galaxy look of these coasters!

One thing I wanted to mention, is that if you don’t want to use Mod Podge to seal in your coasters, you could also use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. I have used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on coasters before and love the final look. The only reason why I didn’t use it on this project, was because I wanted to create a super simple DIY that didn’t involve too much drying time. If you do use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, you will have to wait 24-hours for your coasters to dry.
