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.

Tween Girl Room Decor by Christine Meyer using Butterflies Paper Pad

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.


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!

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!


Supplies Used– Hearts Project PadButterflies Project Pad , Bohemian- Friends Clear 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!


Brothers Scrapbook Layout


Hello friends! Katty here to share a fun scrapbook layout with you all. I am working with the awesome PenBlades and the Discover USA Collection. Even though the Discover USA Collection is a travel themed collection I used it for everyday photos. I am scrapbooking two photos of my boys a few years ago.

FullSizeRender 16 copy

Brothers Supply List: PenBlades, Discover USA Papercrafting Kit, One Big Happy Family 12″ Cardstock Stickers

I began with several patterned papers from the Discover USA Collection, for my background I used a dark woodgrain paper. I used a large strip of a green patterned paper down the center.

FullSizeRender 13

I used the Penblade to cut out triangles from a red checkered patterned paper and used that as a frame behind my photos. I added white cardstock behind the triangles and traced them with a navy blue pen.

I used some of the cutaparts behind my photo.I also used some above and below the photo. I used a few stickers from the One Big Happy Family Sticker sheet as well. I finished it off with some white ink splatters.

I love how it turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by today. XOXO -Katty

I designed my template and cut it out of Kraft Cardstock. Once that was cut out, I used my pencil to draw on the opposite side of the paper the pattern.

I then used my pen blade to cut out the layer. The pen blade worked like  a charm. I used a self-healing mat underneath and it glided right along with no trouble.

I then used my Xyron Adhesive to adhere the paper to the back side of the template.

Here is a closer view of the template I cut out of Kraft Cardstock. You can see the various layers of the patterned paper I used to follow along the bottom side of the template.

This terrific cardstock sticker of the USA was also part of the collection. I used some of the alphabet stickers to write my nephew and nieces names.

FREE Scrapbook Layout Template

Here is the FREE template I created that I am sharing with everyone. It is sized at approximately 8.25 x 8.25 so it can be printed on a regular printer and then used with the pen blades. I am sharing the PDF and JPG files!

Behind the Scenes at Paper House: Creating the Autumn Collection

Tara Sturm has been a designer at Paper House for five years. An avid artist, Tara often brings inspiration from other projects into her designs. Introduced last year, the Autumn Woods Collection was one of Tara’s first projects, and includes Autumn Air, Pumpkin Spice, Autumn Woods, and the Woodland Friends scrapbook paper, and Autumn Woods Cardstock Sticker. Tara talks about what it means to take a project from start to completion, and how exciting it is to see it come to life.  


Fall in New York’s Hudson Valley

Where did you get the inspiration for this product?

I’ve always loved the fall. In Upstate New York [where Paper House is located and where Tara is from] it’s one of the most beautiful seasons. I really love the colors. I wanted to make sure that this beauty was reflected in some of the products that we offer.


Tara is an artist as well as a designer, and drew much of her inspiration from her love for watercolors.

What were some of the influencing factors?

We had a couple papers that really needed a refresh. This was my first collection, so it was also my foot in the door. I was asked what I’d like to do and I chose autumn. As an artist and a painter, watercolor was a big component of the collection that I wanted to make sure was included in the collection.

Tell us about the design process.

To get started, I put up images onto an image board to help refine what we’re looking for. As we moved forward, our team has a few benchmarkers during which everyone will give a critique. Since it was my first time, we went through a few edits. I wanted to add an unexpected color pallet, so I added teal and dark purple to the typical orange and greens. I’m really happy with how it turned out.


Most new products at Paper House start with a mood board.

What’s it like to see your product in the real world?

When we got the samples back from the printer, it was amazing to see something go from a design on the computer to something you can hold in your hands. I got some really feedback from a lot of the shows we went to, just for being different. The teal isn’t something you might expect from an autumn-themed collection, and the contrast really helps the colors pop.


Adding teal really helped the traditional fall colors to come alive.

What’s next for this product?

Coming up this summer we’ve got a new Autumn Woods planner collection, including stickers, clips, and washi tape! Stay tuned….

You can shop the Autumn Collection here! And make sure to stay tuned to the Paper House blog to read more “Behind the Scenes” features.

Happy Father’s Day!

Hello Crafty friends, Melinda here and today I am sharing this fun Father’s Day Card I created with Paper House products! I created a gatefold card with decorations on the inside and outside!

Dads Day Fathers Day Card Paper House 3D Stickers

Supplies For Father’s Day Card: Dad 3D Sticker Set, Chicago 3D Sticker Set and Let Freedom Ring Philadelphia Paper Crafting Kit.

Here’s a view of my completed card. It is a Double Gate Fold Card. This is a picture of it open and the picture in the upper right corner is the card closed.

Dads Day Fathers Day Card Paper House 3D Stickers

This is the card closed. It has a belly band to help keep it closed. I created the card cut file and then used a piece of Blue cardstock and cut out the base with my Pazzles Die Cut Machine. The patterned paper is from the Let Freedom Ring Collection.

Dads Day Fathers Day Card Paper House 3D Stickers

This close up shows some of the marvelous 3D stickers from the Dad Sticker set. They are the perfect combination.

Dads Day Fathers Day Card Paper House 3D Stickers

Have a closer look at the DAD sticker. I like that it has a metallic backing for just a little pizzazz. The coffee cup is perfect!

Dads Day Fathers Day Card Paper House 3D Stickers

This is the other side of stickers. All of the stickers are a part of the 3D Dad sticker set with the exception of the pizza. That is part of the Chicago 3D sticker set. I had to add it as my hubby is a huge pizza fan!

Dads Day Fathers Day Card Paper House 3D Stickers

As I mentioned earlier I added belly band. I used a strip of patterned paper from the Let Freedom Ring Philadelphia set and layered it over a strip of blue cardstock. I added the sticker Father knows best for the perfect decorative touch.

I added the tie and the little heart to a white mat. My kids and I will share our sentiments on there.  Be sure to stop back by and check out the other amazing projects by the talented ladies on the design team.
