All He Needs is Her~Wonder Woman

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page showcasing the Wonder Woman Collection by Paper House Productions.  This page has a fun spin to it.  My grandson has many hero figures but not Wonder Woman, so the theme for the page is “her” Wonder Woman.

Showcasing “her” Wonder Woman on this pattern paper by Paper House Productions.  The tags/foil paper has really cool patterns and tags that can be used in different ways on a scrapbook page.  The stars are cut from the tags/foil papers with a steel die.

The stars are randomly placed, on the scrapbook page, to bring in more of the red color. Foam adhesive squares were used to adhere the paper stars to the page.  Love the dimension it gives the stars and how they add texture to the scrapbook page. One of the tags/foil paper is used at the bottom of “her” Wonder Woman to showcase the star of the show “her”.  The gold arrow is cut from the tags/foil paper.  The big gold “W” was trimmed down to create the arrow used in this cluster about “her” Wonder Woman.

The faux enamel stickers were placed under the “her” cluster.  The gold color, on the sticker,  brings your eye to the gold foil paper border used under the photo strip. Paper is an amazing creative tool.  If you can think it up, you can make pretty embellishments for a scrapbook page or journal book.

She Is Our Wonder Woman~

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Wonder Woman Collection by Paper House Productions.  I was really stumped on this paper choice, I was asked to create with, but then I remembered I had the perfect photo.  All you need is photo that shows strength and this one does!!!
may4wm
I used two different coordinating papers from the Wonder Woman Collection and layered them with one of the border papers, from the collection. The tag/ foil
paper made a cute cover for a private journal space.

A white tag is attached to the tag/foil paper, from the Wonder Woman Collection and the story is written and then clipped to the tag. It can be easily removed, to read the story,  but still private.

The Wonder Woman cardstock stickers make great embellishments, to enhance and showcase a special photo or space, on the scrapbook page.  I used them both ways on this page.  The date tag/white tag is stamped to document this amazing day!!!
may7wm
Bits and pieces, of stickers and paper, work great for a small embellishment cluster in a corner of the scrapbook page, you are creating.  This collection is great for that hero in your life.  It comes with many products that can be included on your scrapbook page or a journal page.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Did you know today is actually a minor holiday in Mexico? It’s ironic, since many people think it’s Mexican Independence Day. But the truth is, it’s the day when Mexican forces bested the French at the Battle of Puebla. And how better to celebrate than with margaritas and Mexican food, right? I’m up on the Paperhouse Productions blog with another quick layout featuring Explore Your World Map Double Sided Paper, Explore Your World Tags Double Sided Paper, Passport Stamps Double Sided Paper, and Mexico Destinations Stickers.

My favorite part about this collection is that the coordinated papers make it so easy to mix and match. Once I cropped my layering elements, I created a film strip-esque for my photos.

I love the look of stitching on paper, and constantly try to incorporate stitches outside of the typical straight lines. I picked this stitch pattern because it reminded me of a Mayan pyramid.

To break up the straight lines, I spackle a think layer of white gesso for a journaling background, as well as a little bit to help my alpha stand out. Is it weird this it made me think of sour cream?

Aaanyways, the finishing touches were the Mexico stickers. These little cuties were the… Sour cream on the Taco – _- (Yes, I HAD to).

And I’m in love! Be sure to hop on the shop to check out all these must-have supplies!

What a Gem!

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the, very cool, Stargazer Collection by Paper House Productions.  I love the rich colors in this collection.  The purple tones are strikingly beautiful.  Pretty close to a real Gemstone!!!

I used these photos, of my granddaughter experiencing the Indiana Page Program first hand.  She is a gem, our gem!!!  The inspiration, for this page, is the word gem.
The design is using two different papers from the Stargazer Collection, cutting one down the middle.  It is adhered, on the gemstone paper, along with border paper and washi tape, to create the center focal for the scrapbook page.  A small banner was created using papers and stickers from the Stargazer Collection.  I love how it showcases the focal photo. It screams special!!!

A journal pocket was created for the details of the day.   I used this spot also, to journal my thoughts, on this experience, for her and how proud we are of her.  I created another information pocket for the back of the scrapbook page.  I printed off information about the program, so others could read and learn about this opportunity.

I covered a vintage library card holder, with the Stargazer papers and cardstock stickers, to create this easily constructed pocket, to hold information, tickets or extra photos.  So easy and looks so cute!!
This is such a gem of a collection and can be used to showcase all the stars in your life. Check it out~

I have one more scrapbook page to share.  This one was created using up left over scraps from the Stargazer Collection.  I love what you can create with a few cardstock stickers and paper.

Pieces of paper make for an easy little banner for the corner of the page.

So don’t throw away those bits and pieces!!  It doesn’t take much to create “cute”!!!

Shine like the stars~

Hi, Connie here with my first project for Paper House Productions.   I had the opportunity to create with the Stargazer Collection.   I had some perfect pictures that would showcase this paper collection well.  The pictures are from a night under the stars and constructing smore’s.  Yum!!!!!

April1a (2)
The center photos are grouped together, showing our evening under the stars.  The film strip, on the side of the grouping of photos, was created using the die cuts from the Stargazer Collection along with a film strip stamp.

April2 (1)

The cluster, at the top, was fun to create.   It consists of washi tape, cardstock stickers and the film strip border.  Star enamel stickers were added to bring it all together.   I used the area between the top cluster and the bottom border as my journal spot.  The words were typed  in Word, printed out on white cardstock and cut in strips.  A favorite thing I like to do, using this type of  journaling,  when adhering the strips down to the scrapbook page, adhere every other strip with foam squares.  I love the dimension it gives the text.

April3 (1)
The pattern borders come in the Stargazer Collection.  Makes it so easy to add contrasting colors, that work perfect, to your project.  All the work is done for you.  Everything in this collection works together.  Hope you check out this amazing Stargazer Collection!!

FEELS LIKE HOME

Good morning creators. I have a fun layout to share with you today using the Color Washed Paper Pad and a variety of stickers! This summer, my sister went to Maine for a long weekend with her husband. I love this photo of them outside!

To begin, I trimmed the green and blue patterned paper to measure 8 1/2″x11″. Then I trimmed a sheet of white cardstock to measure 7 1/2″x10″ and mounted it to the center of the base. Then I tore the patterned papers, randomly to create a fun mat for my layout.

I bought a pack of the snap shots stickers a few months ago while I was looking for puzzles to buy for my son. So glad to finally use them on a layout. I added the “sunshine” word sticker from my stash.

I added the washi, die cut and feels like home sticker from my stash. Then I added a cluster of stickers at the top right corner of the layout. Love these Discover the World 3D stickers. The heart sticker came from the Life Organized Sticker pad.

I used a ruler and pen to journal my story at the bottom then I added a few additional stickers to complete the layout.

Happy Birthday Layout by Majken

Hiya crafty friends!  Majken joining you today to share a rainbow themed layout that I created for Paper House Productions.  Creating this one was so much fun!

I first pulled a rainbow of papers from the Color Washed paper pad and cut balloons using the balloon die from My Favorite Things Blueprint 26 set.  Just laying those balloons out made me happy!

Next, I glued some older Close To My Heart fibers as the balloon strings.  Once that was dry, I included the “HAPPY” (JustNick Outline Alpha) and the birthday over the strings.

After putting my photo on the layout, I sprinkled a few enamel dots, keeping it simple.

Thanks for stopping by today…make it a fun one!

Color Washed LOVE

Hi everybody. I’m just taking a moment to share this layout I created using some papers and stickers from the Color Washed paper Pad and stickers. If you love this collection, you’ll be happy to know that Paper House has a travel notebook in this style! Check it out here. I love how vibrant the colors are in this collection. It’s the perfect collection for scrapbooking those New Years Eve photos or in my case photo. I love this selfie I took of my husband and I celebrating.

I got a little creative with this layout. Even though it’s a photo taken on New Year’s Eve, I decided to create a “love” themed layout. Why not… what a great photo!

I used lots of stickers on this layout. The butterfly was punched from a scrap piece of paper that had different splashes of paint… It was so pretty that I thought it would be perfect for punching a butterfly die cut out of the scrap to use on my layout. I decorated the center of the butterfly using a button and some embroidery thread.

I cut a banner sticker in half and adhered it at the top of the layout. Then I stamped the “fantastic” sentiment inside the word banner.

The Sunflowers were hand-made using a similar technique used to create the butterfly, but instead of using a punch, I used a stamp then I fussy cut the image out of the paper.

The “love” sticker was actually white. I used a light blue marker from Altenew to change the color. 🙂 Lots of clever ideas on this layout to stretch out my supplies!
