Hi all Erin here!  I have a fun way to capture your spring break or other vacations in a fun and easy way.  Pick out your favorite pictures from you vacation and place them in your little album, it even come with stickers!!

Each page your flip up, pull out, or flip over has journaling or a picture.  This little Adventure Flip Album is so easy to make, and the kit even comes with stickers!!!  Here is a video on how I put it all together.

Here are some close up pictures of some of the pages, the rest are all in the video.

I used some of the Discover Sculpted Stickers from Paper House to add to the book, some for something a little different on this zoo page.

The Flip Album even has its own stand, so you can rest it on the counter!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

 

Instax Paradise Found Mini Album

Hello! Samantha here with you today to share one of my favorite things to create : Mini albums! Today I have an album I created with photos of a trip my husband and I took together. I decided to create an Instax album with paper and embellishments from the Paradise Found Collection.

Supplies:

I started with a leather Instax album. It’s like a mini version of a regular scrapbook album with page protector inserts and everything. Instax photos print out at about 2″ x 3 1/4″, so even if you don’t have an Instax camera or Instax Photo Printer, you can still print out photos at this size.

Small photo albums this size are perfect for using lots of stickers as embellishments. Since we spent most of our time relaxing in the same place, there wasn’t a lot of journaling needed. Stickers are the perfect way to brighten up the album and add extra color to the story.

When I do need to add journaling to tiny pages, I like to take journaling tags from Paradise Found, and just trim them down. You can see in the photo above how I took a 4×6 journaling tag, cut it down to 2 x 3 1/4″, and journaled on a partial journaling tag instead.

Flat cardstock stickers (like the hello sunshine sticker above) can be added directly to a photo and slipped inside the page protector. 3D stickers (like the coastal life sticker above) are added to the outside of the page protector instead.

I also layered up some Paradise found papers and stickers to created interesting pages and custom journaling tags for my album.

Don’t forget to customize the inside and outside of your covers with paper and stickers, too! Have you ever made an Instax album?

Live Bold Planner Spread & Process Video

christine

Organized, pretty, and just plain fun; that’s how i would describe the new line of planners from Paper House!  Christine joining you today and I am so excited to be playing with the Live Bold Planner from the Life Organized Collection! This planner  has some different features that I am excited about! Let’s dive in and check it out!

Live Bold Planner Supplies: Live Bold Planner, Floral Hearts 2 inch Stickers

Here’s my Process Video for this planner spread:

Planner2

This is my first time working with a planner where the days are horizontal – I actually think I like that better and here’s why: I like that little space to jot down some notes at the end of the week.  I like that it’s at the bottom and not a prominent part of the spread.  Little details, but things you notice as you are going :).

Here’s a close-up of that second page – I loved how the heart stickers coordinated nicely and helped me set the date apart!

Stay tuned for the next couple weeks as we share lots and lots of planner spreads!

Wedding Day Flipbook

samantha-taylor-hs-medium-size Hello! Samantha with you today to share a Wedding Day Flipbook. I love creating mini albums, and Paper House’s Flipbooks are right up my alley. They are interactive, have lots of space for chunky, 3D embellishments, and you can fit a ton of photos in them! I used the Wedding Day Flipbook to scrap photos that our friends and family took at our wedding.  These photos are really special to me, as a lot of these photos were taken on actual film. I got married long enough ago that there were no cell phone cameras and only some people had digital cameras.

While the pages in the album are already made from patterned paper, I knew I would want to add my own pops of color and bits of patterned paper to frame photos. The colors and patterns in One Big Happy Family coordinated really well with the colors and patterns that were already a part of the Wedding Day Flipbook.

One Big Happy Family has the bonus of having themes of love and family running throughout it, which makes it perfect for embellishing wedding photos!

I couldn’t scrap all of these photos without some 3D stickers for dimension, too. Using both the Groom 3D stickers, and Reception 3D stickers were an easy choice. They’re wedding themed and pretty neutral in color, so they blended seamlessly with both the Flipbook and One Big Happy Family.

The pockets and flipable pages not only add lots of space for photos, journaling, and memorabilia, but they make these albums super fun to look through, too!

To give you a really good feel for the interactive element of this album, I made a video. Check it out below to see all the details of this Wedding Day Flipbook.

Adventure Flip Album

Hello crafty friends, My name is TinaGale and I am so excited to  be joining the Paper House Productions Design Team this year! I love to create gifts for ones I love and especially love it when they can come together quickly and easily but look like they took forever! Today I am sharing a little project using the new Adventure Flip Album.  

 
 
Fun Times Flip Album Supply List:
The album comes complete with silver photo corners and clear stickers to finish your album but I couldn’t resist adding in some of the new 3D stickers for even more wow.
Some of the pages include silver embossed phrases. They’re stunning and really give a finished look to the album.

Of course if the phrases aren’t relevant or you want to add more photos you can add them right over the top like I did for this pocket page. For the insert I created a little tab to grab a hold of it and pull out. I added one of the clear stickers on to it to finish it off.

I loved all the clear word stickers and they were perfect to add right on top of the photos.

For the last couple of pages I printed some smaller photos to cluster around. This phrase from the Discover USA acetate sheet was perfect! I just cut it apart and adhered around my photos. I die cut a heart doily to cover up some of the background page since it was a world map. It was perfect to still give the feel of the map without it seeming awkward since we weren’t traveling around the world.

This album is perfect for gift giving just by itself or complete with photos and ready for someone to enjoy. I hope you enjoyed my project for you this month and will check out the varity of flip albums in the Paper House store.
 
Have a great day!

One Big Happy Family Book

Hi everyone, Erin Reed here today.  I got these fun templates from a friend who was getting rid of them (company does not even exist anymore) and I thought they would beperfect for the base of a book!!!  So I used the Paper House One Big Happy Family collection to create the pages attached to the plastic templates and some pictures of my family from this past summer to make a Family 8×8 Scrapbook Album with 4 pages in it.

Here is a video tutorial on how I made this album.

Each page is about one of my kids and also there is a family page.  I off set the color blocked pages with a neutral page where I used the Paper House Acetate birds with a single graphic in the middle.  This helps break up all the “busy” in the book.

I turned all the photos into black ans white because they were really fighting with the colors of the collection.  I really wanted to use this collection for these pictures, because it worked so well.  So a quick and easy tip is to make all the pictures black and white or sepia to solve that problem!!
 
I added little bits of stickers, gems, or cut up tags to fill in the sections that the template left for me to play with.  This made it really easy to assemble my design for the pages, just find something that fits, says the right things, and stick it down!!  This made the book go really fast!

I left the front and back covers with the word family, because that is what the book is all about!

Making these little mini albums is so easy when you have an amazing collection to work with!

Road Trip Scrapbook Layout

renee-timmerman

Hi! Renee here again , with my second post for Paper House Productions! This time I’m working with the new Discover USA collection! This line literally has pages for all area of the USA- cut apart pages for the South, the Coasts, and even the Midwest! But for my page, I wanted to focus on the Road Trip cut apart page.

discoverpph

For this page, I used more of the embellishments I had already hoarded that worked well with the Discover USA/Road trip collection.

Supply List:

discoverpeek

I cut the United States shape out of one of the mixed cards backing it with  paper, adding sequins to it and topping it with one of the acetate mixed cards. I added the cute little car on top as well.  I thought it turned out pretty cute. But I’m bias.

discoverpeek2

I layered behind the pictures as I always do with pieces of the cut apart paper. I also put one of the cards in the middle. I created a bigger cluster at the top of the right photo and the bottom of the left photo but added little pieces on the opposite.  I also did clusters at the top and the bottom of the page overall. Journaling was part of the bottom cluster so I could somewhat remember what this page was about. For the background of the paper, I cut the sheet in half flipped the top over -piecing them together on another sheet plain paper.

I loved how this page turned out, also excited that I finally got to use some of the Paper House Products I had already with this perfect collection.  I can’t wait also to use other pieces of this collection for other pages. I had 3 different page ideas laying in front of me and couldn’t decide where to go. So look forward to seeing more of these coming your way!

As always, if you want to learn more about this page or the other work I do, check out my personal blog!
