I chose the paper that I wanted to use for my layout and started planning where I wanted my photos to go. I always do this step first every time I work on a scrapbook layout before I start adhering them onto the paper. This gives me time to adjust them and plan on what embellishments I needed to finish my designs.
I matted my photos with black card stock and adhered them to my layout.
I think a scrapbook layout should always tell a story. Without it, it’s just a photo album! I always like to write the story with my own handwriting as it gives it a more personal touch. Hopefully my children will be taking care of these books when I’m gone, and they will be able to pass it on to my future grandchildren.
Hello Everyone! This month, the design team was asked to make a project using one of our favorite products from Paper House. I have been on the design team for almost six months and in that period, I have used Paper House’s scrapbooking paper, washi tape, stickers, planner supplies, and more. However, even though all of Paper House’s supplies are equally as amazing, there is one that is my absolute favorite. That my friends is Paper House’s Faux Enamel stickers!
If you are not familiar with the Faux Enamel Stickers, they were released earlier this year and are so adorable! Each Faux Enamel Sticker pack has a specific theme and contains about 10 to 13 stickers which are very vibrant in color. Besides the colors being vibrant, each sticker is lined with a hint of gold which gives the whole sticker an extra ”pop”.
Since the Faux Enamel Stickers are my favorite product, I thought it would be fun to combine my favorite product with one of my favorite collectibles. That collectible being, enamel pins! So, today, I and going to so you how to turn these Faux Enamel Stickers into Faux Enamel Pins!
To create your own Faux Enamel Pins, you would do the following:
Step 1: Grab your favorite Faux Enamel Sticker pack and stick them onto some sturdy cardstock. Once you have added your stickers to the cardstock, cut them out.
When choosing your stickers for this project, there are a few things that you should keep in mind:
1. Choose stickers that can easily be cut out and that don’t have that much negative space. For example, in the Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker pack above, the coffee mug would be diffcult to turn into a pin because of the negative space between the steam.
2. Consider what type of pin blanks that you have for your stickers. For example, if you have a long bar pin blank (see an example in step 3), you would not want to use it on a small short sticker.
Above, I am using the Glamping Faux Enamel Sticker and Brunch Faux Enamel Sticker pack.
Step 2: Now apply a thin coat of Dimensional Magic to the top of your Faux Enamel Sticker. When applying the Dimensional Magic, you may want to have a toothpick handy, so you can pop any air bubbles. At first, the top of your enamel sticker may look ”cloudy” but that’s ok because it will dry completely clear.
After you finish applying the Dimensional Magic set your enamel sticker aside to dry for 24 hours.
Step 3: When the Dimensional Magic is dry, flip your enamel sticker over and glue on a pin blank (I’m using a long bar pin blank) and set them aside to dry.
Once your enamel sticker pins are dry, you are ready to wear them!
Once you are done creating your enamel pins, you can easily wear them, display them, or add them to a plain bag!
With that in mind, I would be careful with these ”pins” since they are still stickers and not actual enamel.
In the last picture, you will see that I number each of the pins. Below, I listed the specific Faux Enamel Sticker pack, that the sticker came from.
Hello friends! Heather here with a fun layout using my Journey Book! I absolutely love working in this size notebook to document photos that don’t need a whole 12×12 layout. I have had so much fun creating in this notebook and taking it places with me!
I went with a different color scheme for me this time too! I used orange and yellow with some pops of gold. I used papers and stickers from the marbleous collection. This collection happens to be my favorite! To see my whole process on how I created this layout please head over to my youtube channel and check it out!
Hi everyone! Daisie here with a layout I created using one of my favorite products from Paper House Productions. This layout is made almost completely from the Color Washed Paper Pad. This collection is bright, colorful, and vibrant. Perfect for any of my teen girl layouts!
I started with a white textured cardstock background that I misted with some gold mist. I layered the white cardstock on a watercolor paper from the paper pad. This added stability and a gorgeous pop of color around the outside of the layout.
I then used the cut apart sheets from the paper pad. I used mostly 3×4 cards but I did cut a couple of the 4×6 cards down. I just layered them around my photo in a way that I found pleasing to my eye. The colors are so bright and beautiful that it was hard to pick out which cards to use! Some of the cards have the gold foiling on them so I tried to make sure that the foiling showed. It goes so well with the gold mist on the background.
I worked on my title next. I used the tile letter stickers from the included sticker sheet for the smaller words in the title. I used the white “love” cardstock sticker also from the sticker sheet.
I decided to use the Brunch Faux Enamel Stickersto add some embellishment and to play up on the photo. These stickers have awesome foiling so they really go with the papers I chose.
Today, 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!
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.
Hey, everyone, it’s Caitlyn! I have a question for all of you today – what is your favorite item by Paper House Productions when it comes to scrapbooking or planning? I had to think about the answer to this question for a long time, but then it hit me while I was working on a project.
My favorite item is the paper. The paper is so amazingly versatile and I have used it in almost every single project that I have done so far. From adding it to the wood piece for my quote board to creating planner stickers, it has done so much for me. The color washed paper pack has been my go-to paper pack for beautiful splashes of color. I love the paper.
At the end of the month I’ll be attending an art class with a designer. I knew I wanted to have something to swap with the other attendees when Artist’s Trading Cards came to mind. While I wasn’t sure exactly what direction I wanted to go with these at the start, I knew all I needed to do was grab my trusted Color Washed paper pack in order to get started.
The first thing I did was go through all of the pages and pull out my favorites. In addition to going through Color Washed paper pack, I pulled a few sheets from the Marbleous paper pad just in case. You never know what will cause inspiration to strike so I opted to choose as many different options as possible.
Once my sheets were picked, I moved into cutting them into 2″ x 3″ inch rectangles. The papers found in the paper packs are so different from each other with a ton of variety. Since there is so much variation just on one sheet of paper it made my job that much easier. I had a lot of options to choose from just one sheet – all I had to do was create the rest of my design!
To make this project even easier I picked one of my favorite stamp sets to use containing different women. I would take a pile of my cut rectangles, stamp one of the women on the page, and then stamped the word “artist” in a blank space.
Once the first part of the card was completed I opted to add a black piece of cardstock as a backer. This helped to make the card pop even more! To add additional variety, I rounded out the corners on a few cards.
It’s amazing how something as simple as paper can help to create an amazing project! I can’t wait to swap with everyone else at the class. These were just too enjoyable!
