Autumn Cards

Hello! Samantha here with you. Fall is officially here, the temperatures are dropping (and so are the leaves), pumpkins are showing up everywhere, and combines are working overtime in my part of the world, so today I thought it would be the perfect time to share a pair of autumn cards.

Supplies: Autumn Woods Pumpkin Spice Double Sided Paper, Autumn Woods Woodland Friends Double Sided Paper, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Fall Leaves 3D Sticker, Birthday Faux Enamel Sticker

I wanted to create a set of autumn cards that featured Paper House’s gorgeous Fall Leaves 3D Stickers. The autumnal colors and gold foil accents make them the perfect focal point or accent for any fall themed card. I mixed the 3D Leaves Stickers with paper and embellishments from Paper House’s quintessential fall collection; Autumn Woods.

I made one card into a thank you card, primarily because I can never have (or send) enough thank you cards. The “so very grateful” greeting is a strip of paper directly from the Autumn Woods Woodland Friends double sided paper. I turned the second card into a birthday card with some help from a birthday faux enamel sticker. The gold foil of the enamel sticker pairs perfectly with the gold foiled 3D leaves. I layered the birthday greeting over a pumpkin that I cut from the same Autumn Woods Woodland Friends double sided paper that I cut the “so very grateful” greeting from. I happen to have a family member with an autumn birthday, so I already have plans for this fall themed birthday card.

Fall weather and cozy autumn cards are a perfect pair, and these cards are a fun way to send a personalized, handmade greetings.

Harry Potter Birthday Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you today. I’m back at it with more Harry Potter scrapbooking. It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a Potter fanatic, so I love finding new ways to combine papers and stickers from the Harry Potter collection to create something magical like this Harry Potter birthday layout.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Harry Potter Icons Foil Paper, Harry Patter Chibi Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter Chibi 3D Sticker, Harry Potter Chibi Faux Enamel Stickers, Birthday 3D Stickers

Every year my husband and I make my kids’ birthday cakes. We’re by no means professional, but we always have a fun time trying to make something to fit the theme they request. For my oldest son’s 11th birthday, he requested a Harry Potter cake. Of course, I was super excited about the request! I usually make the cake and whip up the frosting, and my husband does the detail/drawing work. I loved how this Harry Potter cake turned out, and so did our son!

I like to mix, match, and layer multiple patterned papers when creating a layout. I loved the Chibi themed Harry Potter Icon paper for this layout. The Chibis just seem to fit a kid’s birthday theme. For more patterned paper to layer with the Chibi paper, I reached for my Marbelous paper pad. The greens, blues, and golds in Marbelous pair beautifully with the Harry Potter collection.

I had lots of Harry Potter embellishments to chose from. My new favorites are the Chibi 3D stickers. They have foil, and glitter, and are just so stinking cute. I also used some Chibi faux enamels, washi tape, and a birthday themed 3D stickers.

Harry Potter Washi Cards

Hello! Samantha here with you. Today I have a trio of Harry Potter washi cards to share. While I’m focusing on Harry Potter today (because I love all things Harry Potter), you could easily recreate these cards with any of Paper House’s amazing washi tapes.

Supplies: Harry Potter Chibi Scenes Washi Tape Set, Harry Patter Chibi Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter House Crests Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter Quidditch Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter House Crests Faux Enamel Stickers, Harry Potter Cardstock Stickers, Harry Potter Chibi 3D Sticker

If you’ve ever looked at a set of washi tape and wished it could be patterned paper, this is your chance! The house crest card was the first card I thought of with the Harry Potter Washi. Paired with the House Crest Faux Enamel stickers, you have quite a stunning card. The best part about this card is that you can customize it to the recipient’s Hogwarts House. I made this one for a Ravenclaw. I also added a little sorting hat detail in the upper left hand corner.

For this second card, I also striped the washi tape at a diagonal, but instead of two different washi tapes (like the house crest card) I used four. Honestly, I couldn’t decide whether I should use the Harry Potter Chibi Scenes Washi Tape Set or the Harry Patter Chibi Washi Tape Set, so I decided to just use both. I love the final result. For the embellishment on this card, I used a cardstock sticker.

For this last card, I used the Harry Potter Quidditch washi tape set to create a horizontal stripe pattern. Photos don’t do this card justice. The gold foil on the black quidditch washi really pops in person. For the embellishment on this card I used a Harry Potter Chibi 3D sticker.

I chose a variety of different types of embellishments so you could see that everything from cardstock stickers, to faux enamels, to 3D stickers will all work on washi tape cards.

I can’t wait to mail these out to some Harry Potter loving friends!

Magical Menagerie Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. Any time I need a little extra magic in my life I reach for Paper House’s Harry Potter collection. Today I’m sharing a 2 page Magical Menagerie layout using lots of fun products from the Harry Potter collection.

Supplies: Harry Potter Sticker Folio, Harry Potter Icons Foil Paper, Harry Potter Chibi Scenes Washi Tape Set, Harry Patter Chibi Washi Tape Set, Color Washed Card Stock Multi Pack, Navy Card Stock, Aqua Card Stock, White Gel or Paint Pen

One of my favorite Harry Potter products is the Harry Potter Sticker Folio. The illustrations are adorable, and there are so many characters and images that you don’t find elsewhere. I also love that you get at least two of every sticker in the folio, so you don’t have to worry about saving your favorites in case you want to use them later…and you get over 400 stickers for just $7.99. It’s such a great value!

When I saw all the fun magical creature stickers in the folio, I knew I wanted to build a layout around them. I had photos of the Magical Menagerie from a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that worked so well with the magical creatures theme.

I didn’t want to take the focus of the magical creature stickers, so I used a pop of Chibi patterned paper and some coordinating Harry Potter washi tape to frame the layout.

For my title, I grabbed some alphabet stickers from the Colorwashed Cardstock Multipack.

It’s no secret I love everything about the Harry Potter collection. There are so many fun products like papers, stickers, washi, puzzles, cards, planners, and journals. Finding new ways to use them always brings a smile to my face.
