Be Happy with a transformation!

artistic-wolek-34Hi everyone! Julie with you here today sharing an upcycled project with you using the Be Happy paper pad! When I first saw this paper pad, I was in LOVE! All that PINK! My fave color!  I went to a neighbor’s yard sale a few weeks ago, and she had this old, beat up jewelry carousel for $3.00! I knew I had to have it!

 

Here it is –

Kind of old and beat up, so I decided to re-vamp it! I started by pulling out the old felt pieces inside, removing the hardware, and then I painted it black! I then grabbed my “Be Happy” paper collection and grabbed some of the papers that I knew would be perfect for my vision!

And here is the end result!

And since I already had a jewelry hanger for my necklaces in my bathroom, what do you think I wanted to use this for?  Well — I used it for my Paper House Productions stickers of course!! This is now in my scrap room with my stickers on display!

And the best part?  The carousel rotates — so I can turn it and see the stickers on the side!

I love taking old things and transforming them into something new and functional! So next time you visit a yard sale or antique store, don’t look at it all as junk, look at it as what you can transform it into!

 

Hello Baby Boy – Creativation Projects

Of course where there is a baby girl collection there also must be a baby boy and today we’re showing you our CHA projects from the Hello Baby Boy Collection.  Once again we had designer Christine Meyer play with these and here’s what she created!

Christine also created a set of blocks combining the different patterned papers, cardstock stickers, and puffy stickers.  Each side was a little different – with this side spelling out baby.

Christmas Post it Up Holder

I just Love Christmas Time! But things can get busy. So I have decided to make a post it holder that you hang on the wall. You can used the clothes pins to attach notes cards or even photos.

I added the 3d Shimmer Reindeer to the corner – it just looks so cute with its nose all lit up.

I also added the background paper under the wire and used the Puffy Stickers on the Mini Clothes Pins. I added some die cuts to the background to give it that winter wonderland look. It is a perfect display to hold those important things.

 

Santa And Reindeer Frame

Hello Paper House friends! It’s December and I love to create home decor items for Christmas and the holidays. The Santa And Reindeer Frame is perfect to hang in the home to celebrate the holidays.

Santa And Reindeer Frame Supply List

For the background, I inked a 12 inch by 12 inch piece of white cardstock with Ranger Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  With the Reindeer Double Sided Paper, I machine stitched it to the white card stock background.  On top of the Reindeer Double Sided 12″ Scrapbook Paper,  I added the Snowflake Acetate Paper and machine stitched around the edges instead of using adhesive because with acetate paper being transparent,  I had to strategically adhere it without having the adhesive show. Stitching is the way to go.

I also fussy cut some snowflakes from the Snowflake Acetate Paper and added them over the acetate background to give more dimension.  Sequins make everything sparkle more so I added some silver sequins with a dab of liquid adhesive to some of the centers of the snowflakes.

I love the Reindeer Puffy Stickers and thought I would add two of them to add more dimension to the layout.  I also added some more stickers from the Merry & Bright Sculpted Stickers and created the “Merry & Bright” title .  Finally I added the Santa 3D Shimmer.  Santa lights up so it gives the frame a fun element.

To complete the frame, I added the layout to a black 12X12 scrapbook frame from Michael’s that I removed the glass from because the acetate is already shiny.  It is difficult to photograph this frame as it has a glare, but  I was happy how this turned out and I thought it would look great in the front foyer of my home.

I hope you enjoyed my Santa And Reindeer Frame.

This is my last post for 2016.  I hope you all have a wonderful festive holiday season and a happy new year!

Peace on Earth 12″ Double Sided Paper

I think the acetate paper is such a neat addition to the paper house lines!  This one really changed up the look of the project and took it away from traditional embroidery hoop wall hangings with paper or fabric!  The tree is just the perfect 3D Sticker there don’t you think?

Those little pinecones are also from the 3D sticker set and are a great little embellishment!

Thanks for swinging by the Paper House Blog today!

SNEAK PEEK: STICKER CRAFT SETS

Hey there, crafters! This morning, we’re revealing our brand new Sticker Craft Sets, which are a simple way to complete beautiful projects. Each kit contains three 10″x12″ self-adhesive sheets, a 3D sticker, and an alphabet sticker. Sticker Craft Sets are available in three great designs: Old World Travel, Baby Boy, and Baby Girl. Not only do they coordinate with our Old World, Baby Boy, and Baby Girl  Flipbooks, but the two baby sets even match the new Hello Baby collection (boy and girl) from last week’s Sneak Peek; they’re perfect to carry on the theme!

You can use the large sticker sheets to cover monogram letters, boxes, cards, frames, or anything else you can think of! They stick to basically any smooth, dry, clean surface such as wood, paper, plastic, or ceramic. When you initially place them down, they’re very forgiving in case you need to try again… they don’t become permanently stuck until you burnish them! Once you have your base down, the coordinating stickers are perfect to embellish, creating any sort of project you can dream up!
