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.

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.

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

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

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!

Craft Set Welcome Sign

Hello! Samantha with you again. Today I’m showing you one of my favorite ways to use Paper House’s Craft Sets. Read on to find out what that is and how I made this welcome sign.

 

Paper House Supplies: Baby Boy Craft Set, Southwest Clear Stickers

Additional Supplies: Paint, Apple barrel lid

I built my welcome sign from an apple barrel lid that I picked up from my local farmers market for $5. I only bought one, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be going back for more now! I put a single coat of white paint on the lid, and then it was all set for me to embellish.

Now, on to my favorite way to use these beautiful craft sets: die cut them with an electronic cutting machine! I used a Silhouette Cameo, but you could do it just as easily with a Cricut machine.

I treated the big sticker sheets just like I would vinyl. I created my “Welcome” in my Silhouette Studio Software. Then I placed the sticker sheet on a cutting mat. Finally, I set my blade speed and depth to the same settings I use for cutting vinyl.

When you’re done cutting, weed out the unused portions of the sticker sheet. You can then transfer your cut by hand or with a transfer sheet (like the kind you use for wall vinyl) to your project.

I finished up my welcome sign with a few accent stickers from the Southwest Clear Sticker set.

Being able to cut the sticker sheets with an electronic die cutting machine opens up a whole world of possibilities for these fun craft sets. I know this craft set welcome sign is just the beginning for me! Save

Altered Monogram using the Baby Girl Craft Set

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! Julie with you here today to share an altered project I made using a Paper House Craft Set! These are so fun and easy to use!I started with this “B,” that I found at an antique store! I painted it  and tused the Baby Girl Craft Set to add some fun!

And here is what I turned this “B” into!  This is for a decor item for my daughter Brookie.67

I added some 3D Stickers to decorate the letter a little more.69

Adding her name to the spools was a great way to add some detail.71

It all came together to make a beautiful addition for my daughter’s room.74

These are so easy to apply and I really loved how this turned out (and so does my daughter!)  It is self adhesive, and it I love how smoothly it went on my project!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Project Pad Calendar

CarolynCircle2

Hello! Carolyn back today and I am super excited to show you the calendar I made with the Punch Out Project Pads. My daughter has become quite interested in dance this year and is always making little calendars to keep track of her practice. When I saw this white board I knew she would love it and I would have fun decorating it!

Project Pad Calendar Supply List: Frames Project Pad, Hearts Project Pad, and Butterflies Project Pad.

I began by choosing the colors I wanted and then punching out a whole bunch of butterflies and hearts. I played with them until I figured out a layering pattern that I liked and glued a bunch together. I adhered them to magnetic strips so that my daughter can move them anywhere she would like on the board.

I went through the frame pad and punched out all the cards with words on them that I felt fit my theme of dance and practice. I punched out corresponding frames (which have the folds already scored) and glued everything together. I also put magnetic strips on the back of the frames.

These box frames I stuffed with tissue so they would be sturdier when pulled off the board. I had lots of fun layering hearts to make flowers and decorate the boxes.

The project pads make a craft like this so easy! They are packed with a variety of shapes and colors that all coordinate. This would be an easy craft with kids and my daughter is excited to make more accessories for her board with me.

Project Pad Camping Decor

Hello! Samantha with you today to share a little inspiration using one of Paper House’s Punch Out Project Pads. These fun pads a full of hearts, feathers, butterflies, or frames in a variety of patterns and sizes that you just punch out and use. So simple and fun! My piece today is a little Project Pad camping decor.

Supplies: DIY Punch Out Frames Project Pad, Relax Sculpted Sticker

 

My favorite thing about these little punch out frames is how easy it is to create seasonal decor with them. They go together really quickly and are super easy to group together since the colors and patterns coordinate with each other.

There are 2 types of frames in the Project Pad; raised frames and recessed frames. I used a flat die cut of a camper (we love camping with our camper during the summer!) in the recessed frame and some sculpted stickers on the raised frame. The raised texture of the sculpted stickers allowed me to keep my frames clean and simple, but still add a lot of interest by adding texture to the frames.

The frames in the project pad are a great size for grouping together as part of a design element in your home decor. They’re light weight enough that they can stand on their own, or be attached to the wall with a temporary scrapbook adhesive or poster adhesive. So many fun possibilities!

The fun doesn’t stop with the Frames Project Pad. There are 3 more Punch Out Project Pads, and they are all so much fun! In fact, I couldn’t decide on just one project to make for today, so I have a bonus Project Pad project over on my blog today. Head on over there to see how I used the Hearts Project Pad to create this layout.

Home Decor With Project Pads

Sara Circle 2

Hello Hello! I hope you are all surviving your Monday! To help ward off the blahs, I have a home decor piece to share with you I created using t Project Pads and Clear Cuts Stickers!

Supplies Used– Hearts Project PadButterflies Project Pad , Bohemian- Friends Clear Stickers

With so many colors in the project pads, it made it very easy to find colors to coordinate with my decor. My dining room is designed around one of Monet’s Water Lilies painting and, yep, its painted purple….which makes this frame a wonderful addition to the room, and I have the perfect spot to hang it! I also loved adding the clear stickers for tails for some of my butterflies, gold accents, and some pops of teal (also in my dining room!)

Thank you so much for joining me today! And be sure to get one (or two) of these project pads…I promise you will find lots of uses for them!

Have A Lovely Day!

Xyron and Paper House “We Are Family” Blog Hop – Day Five

PHP_Family-Co-Hop2017

Day five is here of our team up with Xyron! We’re thrilled to be teaming up to share beautiful family themed projects here, on facebook, and all our social media outlets! We can’t have a fun Co-Hop and not give away a fabulous prize – be sure to check out all the details at the bottom of this post!  Samantha Taylor is wrapping up our week of projects with a mini album – let’s check it out!


I am excited to be wrapping up our week of family themed projects with Paper House and Xyron. My family is spread across the US. Now that my niece is 2, I love to find ways to let her know we love her so, even though we don’t get to see her often. I used paper from Paper House’s One Big Happy Family and Hello Baby Girl  to create a mini album of photos of us with my niece. The journaling in the book tells her how much we love her. To keep it durable, I used lots of flat Planner Stickers and Clear Stickers to decorate the album, as well as plenty of Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker adhesive. I made the album especially kid friendly by laminating it with the Xyron 5″ Creative Station.  This is a book that she can flip through, look at, and read. You can find all the details for making this We Love You book on my blog, Taylor Stamped.

It’s the last day to enter our giveaway, so be sure to get your entries in!

Little Things Family Flip Album

CarolynCircle2

Hello everyone! Have you picked up some flip albums? They are so fun to make I just had to put one together as a gift for a family member. The albums come with several spaces to place photos and journaling as well as clear stickers and gold photo corners.

These albums are perfect to display and fun to flip through. This is the image that is visible when someone flips up the cover of my album. We had our family pictures taken in the fall which made a consistent theme for the album.

Below the previous picture is this pocket with a slide out card. I decorated the pocket with stickers and pasted a sentiment on the slide out from the One Big Happy Family kit.

When the pocket is flipped up, this is visible underneath. I used another sentiment from the One Big Happy Family kit.

The third layer looks like this. I used heart stickers from the Panda 2″ Sticker Sheets.

This layer opens to show a spot for journaling.

The back of the third layer has enough room for two pictures. How cute are these kiddos?!

Thanks so much for taking a look here and feel free to stop by my personal blog here: Carolyn Johnson. Have a great day!

Niagara Falls Vacation Flip Album

Are you looking for an easy but creative way to document those vacation memories? How about one of our Flip Albums?  Christine joining you today with the Adventure Flip Album that I turned into an album about our vacation to Niagara Falls.

Niagara Falls Adventure Flip Album Supplies Used: Adventure Flip Album, Family Vacation 3D Sticker, Let Freedom Ring Cardstock Stickers

Do you have tons of photos from a vacation that will never make it onto a scrapbook layout – this is an area where I think the Flip Albums are super handy!  I was never going to make enough layouts to use all the pictures I liked from this vacation, but I was able to get enough into the Flip Album that I covered it well!  I changed up the cover of my Flip Album to personalize it!

Niagara Falls Flip Album

Rather than show you a whole slew of pictures of the album I put together a quick video walk thru of it!

Now quick, run out and grab one of these fun albums to play with and decorate!
