Samantha Taylor Project Highlights

Samantha is finishing out her second term with us here at Paper House.  She brings a clean and simple style and works in all the different mediums from scrapbooking to home decor. Today we’re walking you thru her creations from this term!

First up Scrapbook Layouts

Daughter Scrapbook Layout by Samantha Taylor using Paper House Productions

We challenged her to use 3 or less products on this one, obviously she had no trouble!  Her three products were the Color Washed Collection, 3D Stickers, and Faux Enamel Stickers.

Clear Sticker Backgrounds=Travel Fun!

IMG_6923Today, 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!

IMG_6922

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.

IMG_6921

Last step? I went ahead and added some patterned paper scraps behind my photo and a few more stickers from The Great Outdoors Camping Paper Crafting Kit on dimensional adhesive and the layout was complete!

I would love to have you stop by the process video and check out how this fun layout came together.

Project Pad Cards

Hello! Samantha here with you. Paper House’s Project Pads are super versatile and easy to work with.  I’m sharing two project pad cards with you today to showcase how pretty these pads are. At the end of this post there is also a link to a bonus home decor project using a project pad.

Supplies: Hearts ProjectColor Washed Paper Pad, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers, Family Planner Stickers

There are multiple sizes of hearts in the Heart Project pad. To create a simple focal point for a card, just layer up a few different sizes and colors of heart. Using dimensional adhesive helps take the card from “ok” to “wow” and gives it a more finished look. You can also mail cards using dimensional adhesive without having to pay any extra postage! Finish your card by adding sentiment stickers. I used some planner stickers on this card to make it a birthday card.

If you like using patterned paper, you can start your card with a pretty piece of patterned paper. Then choose some hearts from the project pad that coordinate with your patterned paper. Too keep everything from getting too busy, I used hearts that were very similar on this card. Group them together in the center of the card for a fun focal point. Add a clear sticker at the bottom for a seamless sentiment.

Want to see more of what you can do with Paper House’s Project Pads? Head on over to my blog today where I have this simple home decor piece featuring the Feathers Project Pad.

Hearts and Feathers Project Pad Cards

CarolynCircle2It’s Carolyn back today to show you 6 different cards using the hearts and feathers project pads. The project pads have heart and feather shapes that are easy to punch out. They are so easy to use and match so well with the Color Washed Paper Pad and the Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers. Making these cards was a piece of cake!

Supplies for Project Pad Cards: Hearts Project Pad, Feathers Project Pad, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers, Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad, Teacher Puffy Sticker.

I covered this card with gesso so the paint would not ruin the cardstock. I then dripped watercolors down the cardstock. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet.

For this card, I layered some punched hearts. I used a black Tombow marker to outline the hearts and add some fake stitching. The sentiment is stamped with black ink with a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

HeartCardPaperHouseProductions1

This anniversary card is all hearts! I love how hearts can make flowers. I used alpha stickers from the Color Washed Paper Pad.

For my final heart card, I used the Color Washed Paper Pad for the background and border stickers. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet and the twine is from my stash.

FeathersTeacherCardPaperHouseProductions1

I combined the Feather Project Pad with the Teacher Puffy Stickers. How awesome are these patterns and colors?!

My last card is a combination of feathers and Bohemian Friends stickers. I love the layers that the feathers can make.

That’s all for today. I hope you’ve been inspired to use some hearts and feathers on your projects!

Make EveryDay Great Memory Planning

Hello everyone! TinaGale here and I’m so excited to be sharing the new Make Every Day Great planner with you today.

make-everyday-great-agenda

When I received it I knew immediately I wanted to try my hand at keeping a memory journal. With the great cameras on phones now I have a surplus of photos documenting our everyday life that usually don’t make it onto a page because they’re just not quite worthy of that. That’s where the planner comes in. It’s perfect to document those daily tasks we do.

If you would like an up close look at all the features of the planner and coordinating embellishments check out my Paper House Planner Unboxing video.

PH Planner WM

Supplies used:  Make Every Day Great Planner, EveryDay Moments Puffy Stickers, Live Bold labels, Live Bold Planner Stickers, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers,  Live Bold Epoxy Stickers,  Everyday Moments Rice Paper Border

Here’s a look at the full process and some of my thoughts on how I’ll be working in this planner to document our days with photos and sometimes maybe just words.

Memory Planner Process Video

The little section to the side of each spread to document notes, goals, and what I’m thankful for is one of my favorite features of this planner. It’s going to be awesome to look back over all the pages throughout the year.

PH Planner L WM

And just look at all the beautiful coordinating products including puffy stickers, rice paper stickers and I even pulled out some of the Our Family collection.

PH Planner R WM

Thanks for coming along with my new journey into the Memory Planning and I hope you’ll give it a try too.

Craft Set Welcome Sign

Hello! Samantha with you again. Today I’m showing you one of my favorite ways to use Paper House’s Craft Sets. Read on to find out what that is and how I made this welcome sign.

 

Paper House Supplies: Baby Boy Craft Set, Southwest Clear Stickers

Additional Supplies: Paint, Apple barrel lid

I built my welcome sign from an apple barrel lid that I picked up from my local farmers market for $5. I only bought one, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be going back for more now! I put a single coat of white paint on the lid, and then it was all set for me to embellish.

Now, on to my favorite way to use these beautiful craft sets: die cut them with an electronic cutting machine! I used a Silhouette Cameo, but you could do it just as easily with a Cricut machine.

I treated the big sticker sheets just like I would vinyl. I created my “Welcome” in my Silhouette Studio Software. Then I placed the sticker sheet on a cutting mat. Finally, I set my blade speed and depth to the same settings I use for cutting vinyl.

When you’re done cutting, weed out the unused portions of the sticker sheet. You can then transfer your cut by hand or with a transfer sheet (like the kind you use for wall vinyl) to your project.

I finished up my welcome sign with a few accent stickers from the Southwest Clear Sticker set.

Being able to cut the sticker sheets with an electronic die cutting machine opens up a whole world of possibilities for these fun craft sets. I know this craft set welcome sign is just the beginning for me! Save

Sometimes Sympathy…

Shannon Circle2Let’s be honest for a second, there’s a subject that memory keepers and moment documenters kind of dance around, or have a hard time sharing, and that is death. It’s a memory no one cherishes or likes to address. It’s necessary though, because it’s part of life. The point is, simple kindnesses like I’m sorry/thinking of you/sending prayers and sympathy cards can mean all the difference in a grieving person or persons day.  Shannon joining you today to share a sympathy card created combining Paper House Products and a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

PHP:MSE Blog Post, Shannon M.

I’m glad that companies like MSE (My Sentiments Exactly) make stamps for this purpose. MSE has clear stamps and the more traditional wood stamps, there truly is something for everyone! They created a really beautiful sentiment stamp that I used along with some Paper House Productions products to create a sympathy card.

Paper House Productions products used: Bohemian-Friends Clear Stickers, Our Wedding Clear Stickers, Feathers 12″ Acetate Paper, Southwest Adventure Paper Crafting Kit , Hearts Project Pad, Butterflies Project Pad, Feathers Project Pad, Frames Project Pad & Nautical Flip Album

PHP_MSE Deepest Sympathy, Shannon M.

The picture doesn’t really touch upon on all the gold, and while gold may not be a traditional mourning color, it is a celebration of someone’s life and hope for those left here to grieve. I see nothing wrong with sending “love and light” someone’s way. Smiles are what actually make the world go ’round. Here’s a better shot of all the details.

Have a great week, thanks for letting me share with you!  ❤

Home Decor With Project Pads

Sara Circle 2

Hello Hello! I hope you are all surviving your Monday! To help ward off the blahs, I have a home decor piece to share with you I created using t Project Pads and Clear Cuts Stickers!

IMG_0076

Supplies Used– Hearts Project PadButterflies Project Pad , Bohemian- Friends Clear Stickers

IMG_0065

With so many colors in the project pads, it made it very easy to find colors to coordinate with my decor. My dining room is designed around one of Monet’s Water Lilies painting and, yep, its painted purple….which makes this frame a wonderful addition to the room, and I have the perfect spot to hang it! I also loved adding the clear stickers for tails for some of my butterflies, gold accents, and some pops of teal (also in my dining room!)

Thank you so much for joining me today! And be sure to get one (or two) of these project pads…I promise you will find lots of uses for them!

Have A Lovely Day!

National Scrapbook Day – Hour Eight – Giveaway

Hour Eight: Happy National Scrapbook Day!  Today we are celebrating all things Scrapbooking related!  Each hour we will be sharing a new post with some inspiration combining Paper House products and our designer’s favorite techniques!

Of course we can’t have a celebration without a giveaway or two!  Stay tuned at the end of the post to find out what we’re giving away!  Now let’s hear from Shannon!

Shannon Circle2Hooray for layers! Wait, you don’t like layers? Or you like layers, but don’t know where to begin? Look no further. There are so many layering gurus in the world of paper crafting..and it can be really overwhelming to look at all of them and not feel like yours adds up. Guess what?!? Comparison is the thief of joy, so know that your layers rock too! Don’t be afraid to add layers to your layouts and cards. I’m going to show you how – but first let me share about myself!

What’s your favorite type of paper crafting? Layouts, but you wouldn’t know it, I’m pretty out of practice. I have spent the better part of two years creating tons of cards.
Where do you go for inspiration? I am a huge fan of color and music. I love moodboards, I check out Pinterest and Instagram just to look at things.
Where do you do your crafting? Currently, the kitchen table, the plus side: Great view of my magical backyard…the downside: it’s really cumbersome to pack everything up every day or make piles and put it aside. It’s ok, I know that my scrap space is in the works…well potentially. Ha!
What are your favorite crafting tools? Pens. Of all kinds. Also…I’d be lost without my stapler. It’s a sad, banged up stapler, but it’s super reliable and always comes through for me. 🙂
What are your favorite Paper House products? That’s a tough one. There are so many great Paper House products. I can’t narrow it down much more than the paper kits (because duh, there’s paper, stickers and puffy stickers in most of them!)
What are your favorite colors to work with? Aqua, gray, white, green, red, pink (even though I don’t like to wear it) and oranges
How would you describe your crafting style? Messy, but organized. Eclectic and loud also seem to stick out in my mind also when I think of my crafting style.
Do you like it quiet while you work or do you have music or tv on? I detest having the tv on when I am creating. I feel like it causes an enormous block. I am a music person. To the core. Music can fix everything. Music can bring me to tears, I am very inspired by music of all kinds.
What’s your go to snack/drink while you craft? Um, coffee..coffee keeps me sane. 

I took a bunch of pictures showing you how I built the layers in my layout. I used the new Southwest Adventure Paper Crafting Kit for this layout featuring my daughter and her two dear friends:

PHP LAYERING by the NUMBERS, Shannon MYou’ll find it gets easier and easier to build layers as you grow comfortable with them, or create your own “formula”.

Here’s a look at the finished layout. You’ll see that it’s a simple layout in design, I am a simple scrapper by nature, but I like to add a lot of details.
