Product Challenge: Girls Layouts with Tutorials!

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!

Creating girls layouts with the Color Washed Collection

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!

 

 

 

Product Challenge: Boys!

All this week our designer’s were challenged to work with a limited amount of products and create boy themed projects.  Prepare to have your mind blown when you see what can be done with just a few sheets of patterned paper, one set of 3D stickers, and some Washi Tape!

Carolyn has been waiting YEARS to use these pictures!  They could not be a better match with the Boy Mom 3D Sticker Set.

PHP-Lunch Box Notes-Yvette

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!

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.

Scrapbook Layouts

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!

PHP-Aug. School-LO-Yvette

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!

Always Believe in Yourself - Majken Pullin for PHP

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!

Christine MeyerBW

Happy Wedding Season everyone!  June always seems to be busting at the seams with weddings!  So today I have a special project to share – I’m going to show you how to make 5 Wedding Cards in a quick 10 Minute video with minimal supplies!

Make Ten Wedding Cards in just 5 Minutes using Paper House Productions Washi Tape and 3D Stickers

Here they are!  Quick, clean and simple, but still beautiful!  To get these cards done I combined our beautiful washi tape with ONE sheet of the Eat Drink Be Married 3D Stickers. 3D Stickers are perfect for making cards because they can be your focal point and often have lots of added detail that makes them stunning! Let’s take a look at how I created these!

Gone Fishin’ Scrapbook Layout

Christine MeyerBW

Spring’s coming and that’s got me itching to be outdoors. But since there’s still snow on the ground, I’ll have to enjoy pictures from last year and scrapping pictures from then!  Today I am going to showcase some fun fishing pictures using the Great Outdoors Collection!

Gone Fishing Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Paper House Productions

The Great Outdoors Collection has three parts: Fishing, Hunting, and Camping. I incorporated all three for my patterned papers!  I also incorporated a bunch of the cardstock stickers throughout the layout.

GoneFishinCU

I used several of the stickers from the 3D Fishing Stickers but also added a lot of the puffy stickers from the Life Organized Collection!  I love how the puffy stickers work perfectly for subtitles and embellishments.  They are a definite fave in my collection!  I have a process video walking you through my whole creation:

Are you ready for spring too?  Pull out some of the pictures from last year (or any year!) and have some fun until it warms up!

Traveler’s Notebook using Destinations Stickers

Christine Circle 2

Have you jumped into the Traveler’s Notebook craze?  I am going to show you today how I use it in a very traditional way – for documenting our travels.  Christine joining you today with a Traveler’s Notebook using Destinations Stickers.

 

New York Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

Our family is about to set off on a road trip therefore in preparation for that I put together four spreads, one for each state along the way.  The new Destinations stickers combined beautifully with the Autumn Woods Collection and the Great Outdoors Collection to make this a fun project to put together.

Supply List: Autumn Woods Puffy Clips, Autumn Woods Puffy Stickers, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Great Outdoors Patterned Paper, Great Outdoors Stick On Pockets, Great Outdoors Cardstock Stickers, Destinations Stickers – Maine, Destinations Stickers – New York, Destinations Stickers- New Hampshire, Destinations Stickers – Vermont, Autumn Woods Flake Stickers, Autumn Woods Patterned Paper,

Vermont Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

The new Destinations stickers have both flat and 2D Stickers and even some foiling.  I made good use of them on each spread.  I like to cover one side of each spread with patterned paper and the Autumn Woods collection has the beautiful rich colors I needed.

New Hampshire Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

For my last two spreads I switched to patterned papers from the new Great Outdoors collection.  While it’s outdoors themed, it still lends itself to autumn pictures (and some winter too).  I’m looking forward to playing more with this rich collection.

Maine Traveler's Notebook Using Destinations Stickers

I love the practical uses for the Stick On Pockets and how you can use them on so many projects.  I used one here to tuck my journaling into.  Wanna check out more on how I put these together?  Here’s a process video that shares more details

:

Now that I have these put together, I’m really itching to get on the road…but first to pack!
