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.

Tween Girl Room Decor with Butterfly Project Pad

Christine Circle 2

Hi there Paper House Fans!  Christine joining you today with a budget friendly decor idea for a tween girls room!  We moved  into a new house and I have been slowly adding to the decor of my kids rooms.  Join me as I show you an easy tween girl project!

Tween Girl Room Decor by Christine Meyer using Butterflies Paper Pad

My daughter just turned 10 and she’s somewhere between wanting little girl decor and grown up decor.  Paper House Butterfly Project Pad to the rescue!  I pulled out this little budget friendly pad and started popping out the butterflies.

The frames surrounding the butterflies were just some plain wood ones that I picked up at a big box store and spray painted black.  I then hung them at angles and started filling them with butterflies.  I attached the butterflies with just a little dab of the gummy tack stuff on the market.

TweenGirlsCU1

The butterflies come in all kinds of patterns, sizes, colors, and even gold foiling.  I used about 6 sheets total and barely made a dent in the pad.  That means I have plenty left over to make other fun projects!  Sometimes with projects like this, it’s easier to check it out in a video – so I made quick little one for you!

Now quick – run and grab that fabulous Butterflies Project Pad!

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!

Hello Baby Picture Frame Using Pen Blades

CarolynCircle2

Hello everyone! Carolyn here today with a simple and fun picture frame that can be given as a new baby gift or a project for a special picture. The new Craft Sets from Paper House pair perfectly with the penblades!

Baby frame PH1Supply List: Hello Baby Girl Craft Set,  Hello Baby Girl Paper Crafting Kit, Pen Blades.

Baby Frame PH3

I began with this old wood frame that is meant for crafting. I painted it a long time ago and never liked it. I decided to use the craft set and Pen Blades to bring it back to life. This image shows the decal paper that comes in the kit, the layered stickers, alphas and Pen Blades.

Baby Frame PH5I wrapped the craft paper around the frame while folding down the corners. I used the #11 Pen Blade to cut the window out of the frame. It was so sharp and so easy to control.

Baby Frame PH2

I pushed the sticky paper into the corners and used the Pen Blade to cut off the excess.

Baby Frame PH4

I finished it off with lots of embellishments. I made the accordion flower by scoring a  strip of paper in intervals and then folding them into a flower shape. I’m so happy to be enjoying this frame again and that you could join me today.

Have a wonderful day!

The World is Wide Home Decor

Hello! Samantha with you to share a piece of wall art I created with Paper House’s Travel Craft Set and a PenBlade. We love to travel, so this The World is Wide home decor piece is perfect for my living room wall.

 

Supplies: Travel Craft Set, #15 PenBlade

I started my project by printing out my saying on regular computer paper. Then I used a bit of temporary adhesive to help hold my printed words to my sticker sheet. The sticker sheet I picked is one of 3 different printed full sheet stickers that come in the Travel Craft Set. I used my PenBlade to cut out my words. I used the #15 PenBlade because it is super sharp and very thin, which makes it perfect for precision cuts.

I used a bit of transfer tape (like you’d use on decorative vinyl) to transfer my letters to a piece of wood that I stained. You don’t need to uses transfer tape for this step, it just made it a bit faster and easier for me to line ever thing up.

I used some of the 3-d and enamel stickers that come in the Travel Craft Set to decorate my piece. It’s so nice that all the coordinating bits come in one box! Adding dimensional stickers to a flat piece of home decor really helps it pop.

All completed, this The World is Wide home decor piece is a fun way to add a personal touch to your walls. Do you like to travel far and wide? Save

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!
