Thanksgiving Containers

Hello! Samantha here today with some Thanksgiving containers. These containers are perfect for gifting snack mixes or sending home leftovers from your Thanksgiving feast.

Supplies: Autumn Woods Woodland Friends, Autumn Woods Pumpkin Spice, Autumn Woods Washi, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Border Stickers, Autumn Woods Flake Stickers, Give Thanks 3D Stickers

These little aluminum containers come in lots of different sizes. They come with a flat cardboard top. Instead of making my own tops, I cover the top in patterned paper. This keeps the tops nice and sturdy, but makes them so much cuter!

I like these smaller containers, as they are perfect for a snack mix, a piece of pie, or small portions of leftovers.

Leaving large blank spaces on the tops gives you a place to write what is in the container, instructions for re-heating, or even the recipe for what is in the container.

Any of the papers from Autumn Woods works great for covering the lids. I used a mix of embellishments from Autumn Woods and some Thanksgiving themed stickers to embellish the tops as well.

Great Outdoors Layout

Hello! Samantha here today with a Great Outdoors layout created with one of my all time favorite Paper House collections. We’ve had an abnormally warm September and October this year, and we’re taking every opportunity to enjoy time outside.

Supplies:Great Outdoors Hunting Paper Crafting Kit, Great Outdoors Camping Tags, Great Outdoors 3D Sticker, Great Outdoors Rice Paper Borders, Great Outdoors Puffy Stickers, Great Outdoors Epoxy Stickers, Great Outdoors Epoxy Clips

Aptly named “Great Outdoors,” this collection is one of my absolute favorite for scrapping any outdoor photos. While it’s often habit to reach for the gorgeous Autumn Woods collection, Great Outdoors is another fabulous option for scrapping any outdoor activities any time of the year.

You can get the Great Outdoors as part of a themed kit (Hunting, Fishing, or Camping), or you can get individual sheets of patterned paper. The kits come with a set of card stock stickers and a set of 3D stickers, as well. The card stock sticker sheet can only be found in the kits, while papers and 3D stickers can be purchased separately.

I started my layout by layering the patterned papers I wanted to use. Then I added the flat card stock stickers from the sheet included in the Great Outdoors kits. There are coordinating alphas on the sheet that are perfect for creating a title. After I had every flat embellishment on my layout, I added texture with rice paper borders, and epoxy and puffy stickers. As a finishing touch, I added the epoxy clip to my photo.

Whether its spring, summer, or fall outside photos look wonderful scrapped with the Great Outdoors collection.

Happy Halloween Layout

Hello! Samantha here today with a happy Halloween layout. I’m a pretty organized person, and I so love all the fun from fall through Christmas. To keep this time of year a bit more stress free, I actually use a binder that I organize at least 100 days before Christmas to plan out all of our Halloween through Christmas fun. Putting together my binder for this year got me so excited to start crafting and scrapping for Halloween that I just had to pull out a photo from last year and get documenting!

Supplies: Wicked Good Trouble is Brewing, Wicked Good Ghosts, Wicked Good Tags, Wicked Good Halloween Epoxy Stickers, Wicked Good Halloween Puffy Stickers, Wicked Good Halloween Stick On Pockets, Wicked Good Cobweb Acetate

The Wicked Good Halloween collection from Paper House is just so fun. It has all of your favorite Halloween icons like ghosts, pumpkins, witches, candy corn, skulls, and spiders, and it does a fantastic job of walking that line between not too cutesy and not too creepy. It really makes these papers and embellishments perfect for scrapping everyone from little kids to adults. My only complaint is that there are so many great embellishments that I couldn’t find a way to use them all on this layout (I didn’t even get a chance to use the fabulous Halloween Washi).

I maximized my embellishment use by placing them in groups around my photo. This way I got to use many of the embellishments, but they draw your eye to the photo instead of taking focus away from it. I also used a stick on pocket as a journaling tag. You’ll need a marker that is permanent on slick surfaces if you’d like to try this trick for yourself.

What are you working on for Halloween this year?

Camping Nights in Pockets

Hi crafty friends! Natalie here with you on this last day of September sharing my favorite way to include numerous photos on a scrapbook page. I love to use pocket pages. They can house so many pictures without any hassle of figuring out how the layout will look.

I used the Camping Tags Double Sided paper as some of my pocket cards. I backed my smaller photos with papers from the travel paper collections.

Those adorable Great Outdoors Epoxy Stickers are the perfect tiny embellishment for a 3×4 pocket.

Using this Discover USA paper dictated the colors in my layout . I printed these 2×3 tiny photos 4 to a 4×6 photo collage & they work great for pocket pages.

My rules for pocket pages are typically to keep from putting two full 3×4 photos right next to one another, as well as break up the pattern paper with some solids.

I usually fit all of my journaling onto a specific journaling card, but sometimes I will add extra snippets with small photos on a tiny die cut tag.

Repeating this fun patterned Passport Stamps double sided page in another 3×4 pocket, along with the stripes of the same colors in the 4×6 pocket, helps tie in the rows.

I love how well these Great Outdoors Puffy Stickers are the best size for a 3×4 pocket!

I hope you’ve been inspired to create a pocket page – they’re such a great, easy, quick way to document some of your memories. I love to combine them with a 12×12 traditional layout!

You can find your own pocket page embellishments and cut apart sheets on the Paper House Productions website and use my code PH19NATALIE for 20% off your order!

Pinterest Inspired Two Page Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. There are so many great project ideas on the Paper House Pinterest page, that it makes it the perfect place to go when you need a little creative inspiration. Today I’ve got a Pinterest inspired 2 page layout to share with you.

 

 

Supplies: The Great Outdoors Live for the Hunt, The Great Outdoors Call of the Wild, The Great Outdoors Camping Tags, The Great Outdoors Beneath the Stars, The Great Outdoors Cardstock Stickers, Hunting Adventures 3D Stickers, Outdoors Epoxy Stickers, Outdoors Planner Stickers, Outdoors Stick On Pockets, Outdoors Puffy Clips, Outdoors Puffy Stickers

I actually found inspiration for my layout from 2 different layout pins. This one by Carolyn Johnson:

and this one by Julie Tucker-Wolek:

I took the split page set up and 2 photo placement from Carolyn’s layout.

I also copied her use of stick-on pockets as a design element.

I took inspiration from Julie’s use of a big circle on her layout and her use of 3 vertical photos.

I also drew inspiration from her cluster of embellishments underneath the center photo.

I love drawing inspiration from other people! There are so many wonderful, talented paper crafters out there. So next time you get stuck or need a little crafty inspiration, check out Paper House’s Pinterest page…you might just find an idea for your next project!Save

Here’s a closer look at the fun sign. I decorated it with some of the epoxy stickers. I used the moon and stars as it was some night time fishing that they did.

Paper House Great Outdoors Stickers Paper Scrapbook Layout

Here is a closer look at one of the big catches of the night…. a sting ray. Don’t worry, they didn’t hurt him. They had to reel him in so they could carefully get him untangled from the net and then they let him go. It was quite an amazing catch though.

Well that about covers it for today. Be sure to stop back by and check out what the rest of the super talented designers are up to! It is truly amazing how creative these gals are!

Until the next time, Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Two Page Halloween Scrapbook Layout

CarolynCircle2Carolyn back today with a double page layout using the latest Halloween collection from Paper House Productions called Wicked Good. It has so many fun stickers that can be used in planners or on layouts. We have also teamed up with Tombow to show you some of their cool products.

Supplies: Halloween Puffy Sticker, Halloween Flake Stickers, Halloween Stick On Pockets, Trouble Is Brewing 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Ghosts 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Wicked Spooky Cardstock Stickers, Great Outdoors 12″ Cardstock Stickers, Wicked Good 3D Stickers, Tombow TwinTone Marker Set Brights, Tombow Mono Glue Pen

I cut the spider webs and title from black and orange cardstock using my Cameo. The title comes from the Silhouette store. I decided to focus on thin, complicated cut files so I could try out the Tombow Mono Glue Pen. It was so easy to run it across the web and letters for a very thin line of glue. I usually make a big mess with my adhesives but this worked like a charm! The glue is very thin so the only recommendation I have is to use it quickly so it doesn’t dry. I then used the black TWINTONE dual-tip marker for the journaling. I used the thicker tip so my writing stood out but the fine tip is very handy to have for more precise work.

Fall Bullet Journal Spread

Hi everyone!  Christine joining you to share a Fall Bullet Journal Spread.  I’ve been loving all the bullet journals I have been seeing lately and decided a new pack of Tombow TwinTone Markers was the perfect reason to try it out!

BulletJournal

Supplies Used: Autumn Woods Epoxy Clips, Autumn Woods Planner Stickers, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Autumn Woods Stick-On Pockets, Autumn Woods Puffy Stickers, Autumn Woods Patterned Paper, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Borders, Free Spirit Planner

I really enjoyed this process and decided I would designate my Free Spirit Planner for my bullet journaling creations.  It worked perfectly! Let’s take a closer look at the two sides of my spread.

BulletJournal1WM

I incorporated the Rice Paper Borders, Planner Stickers, Epoxy Stickers, and Epoxy Clips.  It was fun to have all the options.

BulletJournal2WM

I really love this side, I think because of the stick-on pocket!  Bullet journaling has such a practical organizing side as well as memory keeping. It also can allow for a lot of creativity – I think I will really enjoy dabbling in it!

Traveler’s Notebook using Destinations Stickers

Christine Circle 2

Have you jumped into the Traveler’s Notebook craze?  I am going to show you today how I use it in a very traditional way – for documenting our travels.  Christine joining you today with a Traveler’s Notebook using Destinations Stickers.

 

New York Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

Our family is about to set off on a road trip therefore in preparation for that I put together four spreads, one for each state along the way.  The new Destinations stickers combined beautifully with the Autumn Woods Collection and the Great Outdoors Collection to make this a fun project to put together.

Supply List: Autumn Woods Puffy Clips, Autumn Woods Puffy Stickers, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Great Outdoors Patterned Paper, Great Outdoors Stick On Pockets, Great Outdoors Cardstock Stickers, Destinations Stickers – Maine, Destinations Stickers – New York, Destinations Stickers- New Hampshire, Destinations Stickers – Vermont, Autumn Woods Flake Stickers, Autumn Woods Patterned Paper,

Vermont Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

The new Destinations stickers have both flat and 2D Stickers and even some foiling.  I made good use of them on each spread.  I like to cover one side of each spread with patterned paper and the Autumn Woods collection has the beautiful rich colors I needed.

New Hampshire Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

For my last two spreads I switched to patterned papers from the new Great Outdoors collection.  While it’s outdoors themed, it still lends itself to autumn pictures (and some winter too).  I’m looking forward to playing more with this rich collection.

Maine Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

I love the practical uses for the Stick On Pockets and how you can use them on so many projects.  I used one here to tuck my journaling into.  Wanna check out more on how I put these together?  Here’s a process video that shares more details

:

Now that I have these put together, I’m really itching to get on the road…but first to pack!
