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.
Hey everybody! Khristina here with my final project for this design team term with Paper House Productions. I have absolutely ADORED being part of this team and working with these gorgeous projects. Make sure to check out my channel in the upcoming months because I have lots of goodies left that I want to keep on using. We were given the task to work with our favorite product this round and for me, that’s the gorgeous paper pads. Today, I am playing with backing a cut file using the gorgeous Color Washed Paper Pad and created some quilted heart details with little scraps of colorful paper.
I started off by cutting a 12×12 cut file down so that I only had the diagonal designs left. Then, I went ahead and backed all of them except two with patterned paper leftovers from the Color Washed paper pad.
For the remaining two largest hearts, I created a quilted effect. This is a super easy way to use up scraps and create an impactful look. You just start at the outside edges layering tiny pieces of paper around the edges until you have filled in the entire shape. Easy peasy!
I used the packaging technique to add just a touch of mixed media in coordinating colors to my background yardstick and then added just a couple of foam thicker for a title element. Last, but definitely not least, I grabbed the Color Washed cardstock multi-pack and pulled out all of the butterflies. I added some dimensional adhesive to their wings and it was the perfect finishing touch.
I would love it if you stopped by my channel and checked out the process video that goes along with this layout. Once again, I have absolutely loved every project and every part of the design team experience here and appreciate all of you so very much!
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!
Hi everyone! It’s Laura here with you today! Are you or your kids into the superhero craze? Love Batman (TM), Superman (TM) , and all the other heroes? Well, if you do, then Paper House has got you covered with their awesome 3D stickers and washi!
Smash, Pow…..these Justice League (TM) superhero cards are ready to bring birthday wishes, or congratulations, or even just a hello I’m thinking of you, and you are a superstar! With 3D stickers and washi, you can create cute, quick and easy cards!
More super cute superhero in a card! This one is layers of lovely thin and wide Batman (TM) Logo Washi Tape set on a piece of plain cardstock, then the edges are trimmed up and a circle punch used:
This creates the fun to highlight “Little Batman” (TM) and some smashing sentiments!
And last but not least:
It’s a bird, it’s a plane…..well….you know….lol. How cute is this 3D puffy sticker Little Superman (TM)? A few puffy sticker stars and a little washi, and this card is perfect to zip along those birthday wishes!
Wondering about the backgrounds on these cards? I used some Distress Oxide Inks….they are applied to a mixed media mat, then sprayed with water, and then you drag basic white cardstock through the color on the mat. Use a heat gun to dry, but you could air dry as well. They make a great background for our superhero 3D stickers to soar!
Thanks for stopping by today! Stop back for a lot of great inspiration all month long!
Hello everyone!! Daisie here with another layout and process video for you. This layout features the Arizona, Canada, and Discover USA Destination stickers. These 3D stickers are great representations of each location. They are perfect for scrapbooking, travelers notebooks, and planners but would also work really well for work or school projects or presentations.
The layout I created showcases the locations of myself and my scrapbooking best friends. We met online and we are all from different places. I was able to directly represent their locations with the Destination stickers. I used some of the Discover USA to represent my location.
The background paper is from the Great Outdoors collection. It was the perfect neutral for this layout. I also pulled the Outdoors Flake Stickers in for some additional embellishment. I did some mixed media in the background with some mists but covered most of it up. I love the depth it adds to this paper.
Hello everyone! Daisie here with my first layout and YouTube video for Paper House Productions! I chose to use the Marbleous paper pack to create a fun and colorful layout. Add in the stickers from this collection and we have a beautiful unicorn and who doesn’t love a unicorn?
I used some silver mixed media and a cut file to create the unicorn. I used the same medium to create the starry background. The star stickers from this collection spread the color around the page nicely. My title also came from the sticker sheet. The repetitive colors in this layout pull your eye around the page. To finish off the title I used a silver alpha from my stash. For more detailed information please check out the video for this layout.
Thank you so much for visiting! I will see you again soon!
I am super excited to be starting my adventure with Paper House Productions today featuring some of my favorite techniques. I was really inspired by the Marbleous and Color Washed 12×12 paper pads and knew that I wanted to use them to create a unique, hand-stitched element on my page. Hand-stitching is one of my absolute favorite design techniques!
For this project, I printed an online image of a vintage trailer and used it as a pattern to create my own vintage trailer to include on my layout. The Marbleous paper pad was a perfect place to start with building the foundation pieces of my trailer. Then, I grabbed the Color Washed paper pad to include some bold accent details. I created a coordinating title element from the same paper choices and used my tab and label punches to create some embellishment clusters.
I used the washi tape from the Summer Fun Life Organized collection to keep a subtle repeating design element throughout the layout. Adding a few puffy stickers and label stickers completed my look. I am SO excited about how this layout turned out and hope that you feel inspired to look at your paper pads in a new light!
I really hope that you will join me over on my You Tube channel where I talk a lot more about how I took these gorgeous patterned papers and created a hand-stitched, unique element on my page.

Happy Halloween Eve – who’s ready to get spooking? Our house is packed with excitement, but before I could take more pictures, I had to capture this memory from a couple years back! As I sat looking at the Acetate Paper from the Wicked Good Collection, an idea came to my mind. Join me as I show you how I incorporated it to do some Mixed Media with a Twist!
Wanna know more about what this Mixed Media with a Twist is? Check out this video where I walk you thru creating this spooktacular layout!
This picture shows you close-up some of the details of this layout.
The bootiful Acetate Paper made the perfect canvas for adding mixed media to my layout and I will definitely be incorporating this technique in the future. How about those green foil eyes on the spider?!? Too Much Fun! And of course that fussy cut ghost – those really helped pull the whole layout together.
Hello Hello! I’m so happy to have you joining me today! I have a fun scrapbook layout to share with you using The Great Outdoors Collection! I love the rich colors in this collection and the ease with which I could mix and match the traditional scrapbook products with the Life Organized products to create a fun grid style layout.
