Last week you saw our team taking on the challenge of crafting with minimal supplies and showcasing the boys! This week we’re doing the same thing – using minimal supplies – but we’re showcasing the girls! Let’s dive into what the team has created!
Christine is starting us off with this layout that is exclusively the patterned papers from the challenge which are all in the Color Washed Collection! Here’s a video walking you thru how she made it:
Erica also focused a lot on the patterned papers but she also brought in some beautiful stickers and mixed media as well. Let’s check out her video:
Be sure to check back in later in the week to see what other creations our team came up with!
If you haven’t already started back to school then you are probably getting ready to. Today we have a whole slew of projects to showcase that will help you get ready OR dive into that new school year! Let’s hop on the bus for some fun!
What kiddo wouldn’t be thrilled to open their lunchbox or backpack and find these little notes of encouragement?!? Yvette combined our Enamel Stickers, 3D Stickers, and even Cardstock Stickers to create these!
Grab some supplies from your local Dollar Store and then jazz them up using Washi Tape and Enamel Stickers. Christine went with a Galaxy/Fantasy theme for hers! Check out this video for more details:
Washi can really cover a lot of bases for you when it comes to decorating. Stephanie showcases our Wonder Woman Washi on this simple notebook and pencil!
Help keep the kids (or teachers) excited about reading by creating one of a kind bookmarks! Stephanie combined Color Washed with our Enamel Stickers to create these beautiful ones.
We’ve all seen the Back to School layouts perfectly themed and jam packed with primary colors. Today, we don’t have those. Today, our designers thought out of the box and captured those memories with some of our colorful (but not school themed) collections!
By adding the perfect cut file, Yvette was able to take patterned paper from Color Washed and turn it into a Back to School layout. Combining it with encouraging stickers made it even more perfect!
Majken also turned to her cut files and created a beautiful and encouraging layout. The colors from Color Washed are a perfect match to the background!
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.
Happy March! I cannot believe how quickly this year is going already. How are you doing with getting your stories told? One story that I have been wanting to tell for awhile is about my nickname (Wonder Woman). As soon as Paper House Productions released their Wonder Woman products, I knew that I just had to use them to get this story told.
This layout was sparked by this keychain photo. My kids bought me this keychain to help remind me how strong they think that I am and because they all call me Wonder Woman. Sometimes, this little reminder can definitely help make it through a tough day so I wanted to make sure that I documented this phase of life since everything seems to change so quickly.
I started out by tracing a couple of plates from my kitchen to create the circles for the background that I wanted to hand-stitch. Then, I printed off an online coloring book page (these are great if you haven’t ever tried it) to use as a template for creating my paper-pieced Wonder Woman logo. That yellow paper is from the Sundrenched Paper Pad and it worked perfectly to create a subtle mixed media look without any mess!
Next, I created a little flip tab on the top left corner and used by mini stapler to attach it the background. That gave me a perfect little home for this puffy sticker of Wonder Woman as well as a couple of stars.
I am really looking forward to playing with these licensed products even more as I have lots of superhero dress-up photos of my kids as well as Halloween costumes, plays, and a custom bat mobile bed that my little guy used to have…but those are stories for a different day! I hope that you enjoyed seeing how I documented my superhero nickname and I will see you again soon!

I’m so excited to be back with another fun project including some stitching as well as the amazing and fun dimensional Destinations stickers. I really struggle sometimes with creating the perfect title page for a travel album and these stickers really jump-started my creativity.
For this project, I printed an online image of the outline of the United States and used it as a pattern to create a hand-stitched version of the map on the top portion of my layout. I knew that the smaller detailed stickers in the Travel-Washington D.C. Destinations pack as well as the Travel- Let Freedom Ring Destinations pack would work as great city markers to indicate where our trip started and stopped on the map. It was easy to create a curved flight path with more embroidery floss between the two icons.
I cut my photo to a 4×4 size and used more of the Destinations stickers from both packs to create some border details around the top and bottom edges. I then added some patterned paper banners and a few arrows as well as the eagle insignia to those banners. A few lines of journaling and a little washi tape border and this title page was complete!
I really hope that you will also join me over on my You Tube channel where I talk a little bit more about my product choices and how I created this look.
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.
