Xyron & Paper House “We Are Family” Blog Hop – Day One


Welcome to the Paper House Productions Blog!  We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the talented team at Xyron this week! Both teams will be creating some beautiful family themed projects and sharing them here, on facebook, and all our social media outlets! We can’t have a fun Co-Hop and not give away a fabulous prize – be sure to check out all the details at the bottom of this post!  Now let’s get to Melinda and her creation:Xyron Paper House Productions Blog Hop Layout

Hello crafty friends!  Melinda here with you today. I am super excited to share the layout I created using the One Big Happy Family Collection!Here’s a look at my completed layout. I used papers from the One Big Happy Family Collection as well as adhesives from our friends at Xyron.

Layout Supplies: One Big Happy Family Collection,  Xyron Tape Runner, Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker, Xyron 1.5″ Sticker Maker

Here’s a closer look at the box pleat frame as well as the medallion. I used the Xyron 1.5″ Sticker maker and ran all of the strips through. This made pleating a cinch!

Here’s a closer look at the curtain pleat. I created it and then resized it so it would fit on my picture. I added a sticker flower from the cardstock sticker sheet that is included with the paper crafting kit. I used the Xyron 3″ sticker maker for the curtain pleat. Once again, running the paper through the sticker maker allows you to pleat the paper and have it hold perfectly!

Here’s a closer look at the fancy border frame. I created a wavy box pleat for this one. I also added some pearl stickers for a little extra accent.  The letters are also cardstock stickers from the cardstock sticker sheet included with the paper crafting kit. I love that it all coordinates perfectly!  I cut the pleats out of my Pazzles and then pre-folded them. Once I folded them, I flattened them back out and put them through the Sticker Maker.  I simply fed one after the other so as not to waste any of my sticker maker!

I am sharing the box pleat border cut file as a thank you for stopping by and joining in our hop! Be sure to pick it up while available!

    This looks like fun! And I need a tape runner! That flip album would be perfect – our daughter’s been in Germany since 2010 & she’s coming home for good this week! The family theme is perfect for me!

    I don’t have a Cricut but I do have a pleater board for
    material – I’ll be using it for the pleats. Using them
    for the border was a great idea. The hearts and
    butterflies to mimic the picture is wonderful.
    thanks for sharing.

    Your pleated curtains remind me of some I made for my first house. I’m sure making them out of paper is easier than sewing was.
