Hey everyone, so altered things is another one of my favs to do. With it being back to school time you can usually get a good deal on composition notebooks so I grabbed one with a project in mind. My grandson is a dinosaur freak….he knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs (he is 9 and can talk about dinosaurs for the entire day lol)
So first I simply cut the paper to fit the cover of the notebook. I did cut it slightly bigger so I didn’t have to worry about putting it on the adhesive straight. Next I placed the adhesive sheet on the cover of the notebook.
I then puller them up by the tab (the adhesive will stay on the album) and placed the pattern paper on the cover. Next I opened the notebook and cut the extra off with my blade and i used a file just on the corners.
Now it was time to make it his by adding the dinosaur stickers and his name on the book. I added a little keepsake envelope into the inside for the extra dino stickers I didn’t use so he can place them anywhere in the notebook.I’m sure he will write all kings of things about dinosaurs in this book!
Hey everyone, Stacy here to share with you a fun mini album I created using the Paper House outdoor papers and of course the fun stickers & clips that go along with it!
So lets start with the cover…I love to use the cut apart sheets as embellies for my albums..and the clip and sticks were such a fun way to dress it up. I tied a little ribbon on the side.
Ok now we can dive inside….It’s not secret I love mini albums and pockets and flaps so…I created this mini album with some chipboard I had in my stash, i made some smaller pages to alternate between the bigger pages. We have a couple places for photo mats, journaling inserts and some fun stickers.
Some of the cut a parts I simply punched holes in to make them small additions pages within the album.
Ok so my next page…i’m getting into planners and the journey books, so I took a page out of a jouney book to create a custom mini album page. I used the stickers from The Great Outdoors planner set, and of course added a clip at the top.
Next another pocket with the slide out photo mat….the crazy thing is I don’t even camp but this line was so fun to work with!
So this next page it maybe a little hard to see but there is a clear pocket that the cut a part is inserted into.
Well I have to say if you love camping, fishing or anything outdoors this is the line for you. It is super fun to work with, the colors are awesome, and it would make a great way for you to display one of your outdoors trips.
Hello! Samantha here with you. We got a new puppy this summer, and he’s just so darn cute that I can’t help but take his picture…and now I’ve got to scrap those photos. Whether your K9 friend is a new puppy or just a puppy at heart, I hope my puppy layout makes you want to scrap your dog too!
Since Paper House doesn’t have a specific pet collection, I started with some fun dog themed stickers. I wanted a mix of textures and sizes, so I chose the You Had Me at Woof 3D Stickers and the Life Organized Dog Micro Stickers. I print my photos at home, so I printed 3 1/2″ x 5″ photos on 4″ x 6″ photo paper. I trimmed the photos down to give them a bit of a “Polaroid” look. Then, I used the Dog Micro Stickers to create a fun detail under the photos on the white border.
After I had my puppy stickers picked out, I raided my stash of Paper House collections for paper that matched. I decided that paper from the Great Outdoors collection coordinated with the stickers. I wanted a few more embellishments, so I reached for my Washi. Of course, I used the camo Washi from the Great Outdoors Washi Tape Set, but I also found that the orange and white Washi from Halloween Washi Tape Set was a great match, too! I also love that both Washi tapes have a metallic detail to them.
This puppy layout is the first of many, many dog layouts in my future. I can’t wait to see how else I can use Paper House to capture these memories.
Hi it’s Lisa here today to share with you one of my favorite things to use in my journaling bible…faux enamel stickers! These stickers have such shine and glam up any project! They also add dimension to your projects, but without all the bulk! This is great not only for bible journaling but for many other types of creative projects! When I was studying this verse I immediately thought of the beautiful Succulent faux enamel stickers.
I tend to like to journal only in the margins provided for me so I don’t like to use any stickers that are to large. The adorable glitter heart is from the 3D panda sticker set & is the perfect size to act as a lovely accent for my cactus. I love using the thin washi tape to break up my white space and separate my handwritten notes from the title I created using letter stickers. Here is a close up of the lovely gold foiled washi tape that is from the Summer fun washi tape collection, I use this washi tape a lot!
In this picture you can also see the lovely gold faux enamel butterfly sticker. I love how most of the sticker sets have stickers of varying sizes so you are able to have extra tiny ones to add in those little white spaces that just need a bit of sparkle or shine!! The micro stickers are also perfect for these tiny accents but this faux enamel butterfly sticker kept with the faux enamel look that the succulent stickers gave my page.

I’m excited to share with you my first time ever playing with planner goodies……i’m so hooked!!!! I’m going to share my month of August with you.
I’m using the fun PaperHouse/ML planner. The first week I would say was just basic. I used some washi tape, stickers, and sticky notes.
Week two I experimented a little more. I did a little doodling around the outside and adding some stamping in the corners.
I have decided that I like to put washi tape across the center of it to divide my day into morning and afternoon….not sure how others are doing it but that is the way i’m rolling right now (that may change) I have also started writing positive vibes at the bottom to get me through the week!!
I got a stash of Paper House goodies and picked out these fun little clips….love that added little embellie to my planner.
Well that is month one of my planner in the books….i’m super excited to get some planner time in to start on September!
Hello! Samantha here, and today I have something a little bit different for you. I have a set of 3 Marbelous birthday cards. I wanted to show you how many different options you have for card making with Paper House Stickers. All the cards use Marbelous paper as their base, they all use the same basic layout for the card, and they’re all even the same theme. However, by mixing and matching different types of stickers you get very different looks for each card.
Since I’m sharing 3 different cards today, I’ll share a photo of each individual card and list the supplies right afterwards.
This card is a bit more fun. I created texture by using a puffy clip for my focal point and a 3D sticker for my greeting. To create the border I paired a shiny silver rice paper with some cupcake washi tape.
This last card is completely whimsical, as I made it with my soon to be 5 year old niece in mind. A little rainbow rice paper is the perfect starting point for some magical stickers. This card uses mostly flat stickers (I sneaked in a small enamel heart) to make it easy to mail, but the fun faux enamel sticker adds a special touch to the card.
There you have it; a trio of Marbelus birthday cards.
I have such great early childhood memories of going on roadtrips with my family and placing pins in maps at the roadside diner that we would stop at. I loved seeing how people from around the world had visited this one spot in search of a great breakfast. There was nothing more rewarding than pushing the pin into the map and knowing in 10-15 years that pin would still be there. These memories are what inspired my latest project. I created a cutout map using scrapbook paper from Paper House Productions.
The project was simple. Paperhouse had done all the heavy lifting for me by creating such gorgeous paper. I love that the map feels vintage and faded, which makes the map feel like an heirloom.
I decided to cut the map out as I wanted something distinctive to hang on my wall. I had to save all the scrap paper as I love the vintage license plates. It reminded me of playing the license place game on many family road trips, and something I still do.
Armed with an exacto knife and cardboard I cut out the shape of the USA. Cardboard provided an excellent backing incase I decided to put pins or tacks into the map.
After I had finished cutting out the product I decided that I wanted to use my vintage typewriter to type out the different names of places I wanted to put on the map. This is only the beginning of the project and I know this map will continue to grow as I continue to make more memories.
While I opted to create a memory map there are so many other things you can do with this map.
You could put pins of what states you have traveled to, where your relatives live, places you dream of visiting, where you have received postcards, and letters from. There is no limit to your imagination.
Hello! Samantha here with you. Summer is in full swing at our house. It is full of playing outside, summer sports, and the occasional over night trip to somewhere fun. Today I have a Sundrenched layout documenting a little bit of silliness on one of those overnight trips.
While my husband had to work, the kids and I got to spend the day playing. We sent him this photo to tease him about that fact that we got to swim while he had to sit in meetings.
Sundrenched is a collection full of bright, saturated, summery colors. There are also lots of pops of metallic throughout the collection papers. To keep everything cohesive, I chose to make sure that I used gold metallic accents to carry the theme throughout the layout. Choosing at least one cohesive element helps keep from overwhelming the eye.
Sundrenched has a coordinating Cardstock Multi Pack, but in addition to the the Color Washed Cardstock Multi Pack also goes beautifully with this collection. The words “smile” and “love” on my layout were taken from Color Washed.
I like to use a lot of dimensional adhesive and a mix of flat stickers and 3D stickers on my layouts. This helps to keep everything from just blending and running together. Your eye picks up on the different levels to the layering and sees more separation between images, journaling, and photos.
Hey y’all it’s Liv here! I am so excited to share with you a fun DIY project guaranteed to make you and your recipient smile. My dad fishes all the time and I wanted to create a fun and cute card to thank him for all the fish he has caught. Recently I have become obsessed with creating shaker postcards, shaker embellished hoops and shaker planner spreads. There is something so satisfying with having a project that you can move.
In this project I created a fish themed card but don’t let that limit your creativity! Paper House Productions has so many amazing stickers, embelishments and paper, which means the sky is the limit.
In this project I used the following products from Paper House Productions

Step 1: Select your paper and quote card and cut them out!
Paper House productions has such an amazing selection of different papers and themed quote cards it was hard to choose one for this project. I selected a fish theme to use for my dad!
Step 2: Cut Out Window on Front of Card
Trace an outline of your quote card on the front of your card. Make sure to give yourself at least a half inch border to allow you to adhere the plastic envelope to the back front of the card. I recommend using an exacto knife and a ruler to help give a precise line. Make sure you have a cutting mat as I don’t want to ruin your table.
Step 3: Cut Out you fishes
I chose the Freshwater fish 2″ Sticker to be used in this embellished shaker card. I placed the fish on cardstock and then cut them out using an exacto knife. I reused the cardstock that was provided in the sticker package.
Step 4: Adhere Clear Plastic Envelope to the card
I reuse the plastic clear envelopes that come with most craft orders. This is a great way to cut down on cost and save the environment. I recommend using a clear adhesive roller to adhere the plastic to the card.
Step 5: Place fishes into plastic envelope and reseal
Plop your fishes into the clear plastic and then seal the plastic envelope using your adhesive roller. Make sure to be precise with your adhesive roller as you don’t want the fish to get caught on the edges. Let them swim freely.
Step 6: Embellish
Hands down this is my favorite step. Add whatever stickers, die cuts, and paper to your card. Make sure to share your creations on Paper House Creates.
I can’t wait to see what you create. Check out my blog @longlivelivletters
