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!

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!

Look at all those Flip Albums! We found these on Seragirl’s Facebook Page!

We don’t see too many two page layouts but this one really caught our eye! This comes from the Scrapbook.com gallery and is by Phellewell! She used the All Star Paper Pad to create this great spread!

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

Christine Circle 2

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!

National Scrapbook Day – Hour Seven – Giveaway

Hour Seven: Happy National Scrapbook Day!  Today we are celebrating all things Scrapbooking related!  Each hour we will be sharing a new post with some inspiration combining Paper House products and our designer’s favorite techniques!

Of course we can’t have a celebration without a giveaway or two!  Stay tuned at the end of the post to find out what we’re giving away!  Now let’s hear from Samantha!
—————————————————————————————————

Samantha Taylor HS Circle 2Medium Size

Happy NSD!  Samantha with you to share some tips for a technique I use on almost every layout; mixing and matching patterned papers.  But before we dive into that, I get to share a little about myself and my crafty habits!

What’s your favorite type of paper crafting? I really love creating mini albums! I make them in any size out of just about anything.
Where do you go for inspiration? I like to look at home decor and interior decorator sites (especially on Pinterest) for color combo inspiration. I’ve found the fashion industry is also a great place to find current trends in colors and textures.
Where do you do your crafting? I am truly thankful to have a room dedicated to my crafting. It’s stuffed full of lots of re-purposed and second hand storage options.
What are your favorite crafting tools? All of them! I am a tool junkie. I love trying out new tools as well as using lots of old tried and true ones.
What are your favorite Paper House products? The Puffy Stickers. These are not the puffy stickers of your childhood! They are whimsical and rich looking, and just so fun!
What are your favorite colors to work with? I tend to gravitate towards blues and greens.
How would you describe your crafting style? My style tends to be clean and simple. I also like to watch current trends and blend them into my style.
Do you like it quiet while you work or do you have music or tv on? I love to have Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon on in the background. Have any good series suggestions for me?
What’s your go to snack/drink while you craft? I tend not to snack when I craft, but I do love coffee anytime.

Just like any technique, some people are pros at it without ever thinking about how they do it, some people love it after some practice, and some people will decide it’s just not for them. No matter what your experience level is with mixing and matching patterned papers, I’d love to hear about (and see!) your experiences with this technique.

Supplies: ONe Big Happy Family 12″ Paper PadOne Big Happy Family Mixed Card PackEveryday Moments LabelsFamily Planner Stickers

If you’re new to mixing and matching patterned papers, the best thing to do is stick to one paper collection (like I did here by using One Big Happy Family). As you get more comfortable working with lots of patterned papers at once, you can pull papers from multiple collections.

The second thing to look for is a patterned “neutral”. Here my patterned neutral is the woodgrain paper. It’s manly one color, with no big bold patterns on it. A patterned neutral  will help ground your layout and keep things from looking too busy.

The third thing I always try to find is a patterned paper that has all of the colors of the other papers and embellishments you plan to use in it. It will help tie everything together and will make your layout look cohesive instead of disjointed. On this layout, the blue patterned paper is the paper that serves in that capacity.

Play around with the order of your layers. I pull out all the papers I’m thinking about using and I start to layer them up in different piles. I pull out or add papers based on how I think they look together. For example, on this layout I tried the blue patterned paper on top, and I tried the red patterned paper on top. For whatever reason, the red paper looked wrong on top, but fantastic underneath the blue paper.

A

Finally, don’t be afraid to use your embellishments to tie all your patterns together even more. I used label stickers from Everyday Moments Labels to pull more pinks and reds into the layout, which in turn helped the red patterned paper layer pop a bit more.

In Case You Missed It: The Best Travel-Themed Creations from Our Design Team

At Paper House, we’ve been working with great designers making incredible work for over thirty years. Recently, we’ve had the joys of travel on our minds after our trip to Japan (read about it here!), and we’ve rounded up some of the best travel-themed crafting projects to help inspire your next project. In case you missed it, here’s some of our favorites from the last couple of months.

First up, we’ve got Christine Meyer’s rustic commemoration of her trip to Boston. Christine was inspired by the color palette of the Let Freedom Ring Boston paper crafting kit. Be sure to see how she took her project to the next level with her creative use of string art in her tutorial video

Renee Timmerman has been crafting amazing projects with Paper House products for years! Renee used a variety of different kits to create a lasting tribute to her time on the road, including the Discover USA kit, the Road Is Life scrapbook paper kit, and the Road Trip Mixed card pack. Visit her blog for more of her amazing work!

Paper House Productions Southwest Adventure Card

Melinda Beltran’s epic birthday card was made with the Southwest Adventure paper crafting kit. Melinda used foam tape to give some dimension for multiple layers to form something really special. View a couple more of her Southwest-inspired creations here.

Finally, Samantha Taylor captured her trip with her husband in one of her favorite formats: mini-albums. Like Renee, Samantha combined a variety of different Paper House products to help realize her vision. She combines the Cruise and Paradise Found double-sided scrapbook paper kits with the Discover The World and Island Life 3D sticker packs. As Samantha describes her approach, “small photo albums this size are perfect for using lots of stickers as embellishments!”

Happy Mother’s Day!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! Julie with you here today sharing some little Mother’s Day gifts I made for some co-workers! I used the Be Happy collection, Family Planner Stickers and Butterfly project pad from Paper House Productions!

I wanted to include some little candy bars in each little gift I made, but I didn’t have any bags, so I made some using some of the papers in the collection!  I cut papers in 4×4 inch squares and then sewed them together to make my ‘bags’!

17I then made some tags for the front of the ‘bags’ to wish each woman on my team a Happy Mother’s Day! After adding the candy bars to the bags, I tied a tag to the front of each bag! I hope my co-workers like them!

 

 

Travel Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® – Day Three

unnamed (2)Welcome to Day Three of the our Travel Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®!  We are so excited to be teaming up with this great adhesive company to showcase both our travel products and their line of adhesives.  Let’s get on to the fantastic projects from our team!

Samantha Taylor
Travel Memorabilia Envelope-010
I am super excited to be sharing my travel project for our team-up with Scrapbook Adhesives this week! If you’re like me, you collect a lot of memorabilia (tickets, maps, programs, etc.) when you travel. I used 2 of Paper House’s Clear Cuts (Southwest Adventures Feathers and Discover USA) and Scrapbook Adhesives Adhesive Lines to create a 7 1/2″ x 11″ memorabilia envelope that’s durable enough to take with you when your traveling. It also has a fun pattern, so all the leftover bits that don’t fit a scrapbook page can go back into the envelop, and the envelope can be added right into your album.  I have a step by step photo tutorial on my blog, Taylor Stamped. Head on over to get all the details to make your own!

3L Adhesive & Paper House Productions Blog Hop ProjectI used one of the keepsake envelopes to create a “faux”shaker card. I cut the saying out of a piece of paper from the Paradise Found Florida Paper Crafting Kit. The envelope already has adhesive on the back.  Worked like a charm and was super quick and easy!
