Color-Washed Quilted Hearts Cut File Layout

IMG_6923
Hey everybody! Khristina here with my final project for this design team term with Paper House Productions. I have absolutely ADORED being part of this team and working with these gorgeous projects. Make sure to check out my channel in the upcoming months because I have lots of goodies left that I want to keep on using. We were given the task to work with our favorite product this round and for me, that’s the gorgeous paper pads. Today, I am playing with backing a cut file using the gorgeous Color Washed Paper Pad and created some quilted heart details with little scraps of colorful paper.

IMG_7202

I started off by cutting a 12×12 cut file down so that I only had the diagonal designs left. Then, I went ahead and backed all of them except two with patterned paper leftovers from the Color Washed paper pad.

For the remaining two largest hearts, I created a quilted effect. This is a super easy way to use up scraps and create an impactful look. You just start at the outside edges layering tiny pieces of paper around the edges until you have filled in the entire shape. Easy peasy!

I used the packaging technique to add just a touch of mixed media in coordinating colors to my background yardstick and then added just a couple of foam thicker for a title element. Last, but definitely not least, I grabbed the Color Washed cardstock multi-pack and pulled out all of the butterflies. I added some dimensional adhesive to their wings and it was the perfect finishing touch.

I would love it if you stopped by my channel and checked out the process video that goes along with this layout. Once again, I have absolutely loved every project and every part of the design team experience here and appreciate all of you so very much!

Khristina

Clear Sticker Backgrounds=Travel Fun!

IMG_6923Today, I got to have a ton of fun by choosing a product that I have been wanting to work with and haven’t gotten a chance to yet. I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Sticky Pix Clear Cuts Adventure Awaits with Foil Accents . I didn’t intend to use the whole pack…but….109 stickers later, I am in love with this super fun custom background!

IMG_6922

I started out by tracing around a kitchen bowel (yep! very technical and sophisticated work) to create the orange background for my photo to be contained within. I knew that this was going to have to be pretty bold and not too busy because of the rest of my layout design ideas. I then used by sewing machine to add some stitching around the outside border of the page as well as around the circle element.

Next, it was time to go sticker crazy! I grabbed the sticker flip book and just started adding stickers to the entire background. I started with the biggest designs and moved by way thru all the way to the smallest designs.

IMG_6921

Last step? I went ahead and added some patterned paper scraps behind my photo and a few more stickers from The Great Outdoors Camping Paper Crafting Kit on dimensional adhesive and the layout was complete!

I would love to have you stop by the process video and check out how this fun layout came together.

Printers Tray

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today and  I’m sharing a fun printers tray project using some great products from both Paper House AND Xyron….what a perfect combo!

This project starts with a whole bunch of Paper House and Xyron goodness…..

Xyron close up #1

They all come together to create this piece of home decor that captures our family trip to Arizona!

Call of the Wild XyronPH 2018

Paper House has great Travel 2D stickers for the states and the Succulent Faux Enamel Stickers work well with the desert vibe on this project.  Think outside the box when you are using stickers….in this set, many of the plants are in cute little clay pots.  Some were left that way, but some,  I trimmed off the cactus to use on its own and layered it into torn pieces from the Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad.  The Sticky Pix Clear Cuts are also a great way to add interest to a project, and being clear, they can go right on your photos as well.

Something that brings this project all together is the beautiful washi tape.   Love that the Paper House washi comes with a wide and narrow width tape in the same package!  You can layer it up on plain white or black cardstock to create backgrounds, borders, and also die-cut to create a project title.

Xyron close up #3

The Xyron Sticker Maker makes it easy to add adhesive to the letters, and if you need a little clean up of the extra adhesive, the Xyron Adhesive Eraser has got it covered….nothing like the perfect tools to bring a project together!

Xyron close up #2

All the individual squares and layers on this project are held together beautifully by the Xyron Tape Runner.   It has a strong adhesive that holds all the layers in place.

Xyron close up #4

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration!

Supplies:  Paper House: Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad, Arizona Travel 2D Stickers, Stargazer Washi, Sticky Pix Clear Cuts, Succulent Faux Enamel Stickers, The Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Kit.  Xyron: Sticker Maker, Adhesive Eraser, Tape Runner.

Maria Russell Circle

Hello Paper House Productions fans! I hope you are all having a great week so far.  It’s Maria back on the blog today to show you how I set up and decorated my Traveler’s Notebooks, showcasing the new Unicorn Journey Book Set, Weekly Creative Journaling Stickers, Kawaii Stick-On Pockets, the Xyron Tape runner and a bunch of other supplies.  Since I am traveling to Dubai and Athens the week that this blog post will go live, I thought this is the perfect opportunity to set-up my traveler’s notebooks so I can take it to the trip with me.

The Unicorn traveler’s journal will be set-up for my daily journaling.  The white traveler’s journal will be set-up to write inspirational quotes that I like.  I have a YouTube process video for you today so I will keep this blog post short.  Here are some photos

Here’s what it looks like inside:

I used my Xyron tape runner to adhere embellishments on my pages which is why I also bring it with me when I travel.

The photo on the left side is my daily journal, and the photo on the right is where I wrote my favorite quotes.

Here Comes the Justice League!

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  It’s Laura here with you today!   Are you or your kids into the superhero craze?  Love Batman (TM), Superman (TM) , and all the other heroes?  Well, if you do, then Paper House has got you covered with their awesome 3D stickers and washi!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Smash, Pow…..these Justice League (TM) superhero cards are ready to bring birthday wishes, or congratulations, or even just a hello I’m thinking of you, and you are a superstar!  With 3D stickers and washi, you can create cute, quick and easy cards!

Ladies first…..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This card has a border of the thin washi that comes in the Superman Logo Washi Tape set and the center strip has the wide washi with the thin washi as borders.  The Supergirl (TM) 3D Justice League Chibi Heroes Puffy Stickers definitely give this card some “POW”!

Nanananana….Next is Batman (TM)!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

More super cute superhero in a card!  This one is layers of lovely thin and wide Batman (TM) Logo Washi Tape set on a piece of plain cardstock, then the edges are trimmed up and a circle punch used:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This creates the fun to highlight “Little Batman” (TM) and some smashing sentiments!

And last but not least:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s a bird, it’s a plane…..well….you know….lol.  How cute is this 3D puffy sticker Little Superman (TM)?  A few puffy sticker stars and a little washi, and this card is perfect to zip along those birthday wishes!

Wondering about the backgrounds on these cards?  I used some Distress Oxide Inks….they are applied to a mixed media mat, then sprayed with water, and then you drag basic white cardstock through the color on the mat.  Use a heat gun to dry, but you could air dry as well.  They make a great background for our superhero 3D stickers to soar!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop back for a lot of great inspiration all month long!

Supplies Used: Paper House:  Justice League (TM) Chibi Heroes Puffy Sticker, Batman Logo Washi Tape set, Superman Logo Washi Tape set.

Sun Drenched Just Beachy LO

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today to share a bright and “Just Beachy” LO created with the beautiful rich colored, foil accented papers, matching stickers, and alphas, found in the Paper House Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These paper pads have so much in them to play with with!! The great journal type cards you can layer up (the starfish and the “splish splash”) and also the cute stickers you can use for fun accents around your pictures.  The quality of the heavy cardstock stickers from Paper House is amazing!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The foiled papers are great to use as an accent….here I just cut a 2&1/2″ strip of the paper and then cut it into different widths.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They are arranged at different heights under the edge of the paper before being glued down.  A little tip to make them easier to work with….once I thought the pattern of the paper strips looked good, I gently lifted the paper mat, and used a strip of double stick tape to hold all the paper strips together.  Then I could move them around where needed to glue them onto the page, without having to worry about them shifting out of place.  I curled them up slightly to give them a little more of a fringe effect.

Another bonus is having matching alphas right in the Sun Drenched paper pad!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Cute and colorful….I love having matching alphas to add titles to my page…..how about you?  When I scrapbook, I tend to have one or two pages in a set of pictures that have journaling telling most of the story, for the other pages,  I like my title to tell the story.  It’s also great to have a couple of different alpha options included to make the title a little more interesting.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to check out all the fun inspiration this month using the Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad!

I used a piece of the marbleous paper and matted the black card stock on it to make all of the colors pop off the page! I love all of the bright colors in this layout, it makes me smile. I also love the addition of the Kawaii Flake Stickers. They are such cute little elements to make your layout or any project special! My favorite element on my layout is the Kawaii Stick On Pocket, I love how I can add extra journaling and tuck it into the pocket.

London-Calling Scrapbook Layout Destination Stickers by Maria

Maria Russell CircleHello my crafty friends!  Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you a scrapbook layout, showcasing the Discover London 3-D Sticker Pack and the London Calling 12″ Double-sided Scrapbook paper.  I love that there are endless possibilities to mix and match the coordinating travel sets, especially the Destination Stickers.  I really love the 3d stickers!

 

IMG_6677

I started out by printing my photos using my Canon Selphy photo printer.  I cut them to size for my layout.

I decided to use the London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper to match the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.  I cut a 6 x 12 black card stock to cover half of the scrapbook paper to have a plain base to showcase my photos and the sticker.

IMG_6678

I also used another black card stock to mat my Big Ben photograph and ground it a little so that it doesn’t look like it’s floating in the air.

IMG_6679

I used another red card stock to mat the photo of my daughter and I standing in Leicester  Square while it was snowing, and journaled a little of how the day was going, where we were, and the date.

IMG_6680

Here’s a close-up with the amazing Destination 3D sticker, and that England heart flag is super cute!  I also love the gold foil details on the Discover London sticker.

PHPLondon1

I thought it’s also appropriate to include the “Cheers” and the Red Tour Bus, also included in the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.

PHPLondon2

My daughter and I are huge fans of Sherlock Holmes so naturally, we had to see where he lived and thought that the Police Cap and the Red Telephone Booth would be perfect to showcase this spot.

PHPLondon3

I wish I can share more photos and use more stickers but I guess I will have to share it on another post.  We have definitely enjoyed touring London and this London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper with the Discover London 3D Sticker pack are the perfect combination to decorate my layout.

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching
I’m so excited to be back with another fun project including some stitching as well as the amazing and fun dimensional Destinations stickers. I really struggle sometimes with creating the perfect title page for a travel album and these stickers really jump-started my creativity.

 

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching

For this project, I printed an online image of the outline of the United States and used it as a pattern to create a hand-stitched version of the map on the top portion of my layout. I knew that the smaller detailed stickers in the Travel-Washington D.C. Destinations pack as well as the Travel- Let Freedom Ring Destinations pack would work as great city markers to indicate where our trip started and stopped on the map. It was easy to create a curved flight path with more embroidery floss between the two icons.

Travel Scrapbook Title Page Featuring Stitching

I cut my photo to a 4×4 size and used more of the Destinations stickers from both packs to create some border details around the top and bottom edges. I then added some patterned paper banners and a few arrows as well as the eagle insignia to those banners. A few lines of journaling and a little washi tape border and this title page was complete!

I really hope that you will also join me over on my You Tube channel where I talk a little bit more about my product choices and how I created this look.

Camping Scrapbook Layout Featuring Hand Stitching

Camping Scrapbooking Layout Featuring 12x12 Paper Pad Details
I am super excited to be starting my adventure with Paper House Productions today featuring some of my favorite techniques. I was really inspired by the Marbleous and Color Washed 12×12 paper pads and knew that I wanted to use them to create a unique, hand-stitched element on my page. Hand-stitching is one of my absolute favorite design techniques!

Camping Scrapbooking Layout Featuring 12x12 Paper Pad Details

For this project, I printed an online image of a vintage trailer and used it as a pattern to create my own vintage trailer to include on my layout. The Marbleous paper pad was a perfect place to start with building the foundation pieces of my trailer. Then, I grabbed the Color Washed paper pad to include some bold accent details. I created a coordinating title element from the same paper choices and used my tab and label punches to create some embellishment clusters.

Camping Scrapbooking Layout Featuring 12x12 Paper Pad Details

I used the washi tape from the Summer Fun Life Organized collection to keep a subtle repeating design element throughout the layout. Adding a few puffy stickers and label stickers completed my look. I am SO excited about how this layout turned out and hope that you feel inspired to look at your paper pads in a new light!

I really hope that you will join me over on my You Tube channel where I talk a lot more about how I took these gorgeous patterned papers and created a hand-stitched, unique element on my page.
