A Traveler’s Notebook Using the Travel Craft Set

CarolynCircle2

It’s Carolyn here today to show you a traveler’s notebook I made using the Travel Craft Set. I always bring a boring old notepad on my trips so I thought it would be fun to dress one up. I really like how it turned out and now I need to go on vacation so I can use it!

Supplies for Traveler’s Notebook: Travel Craft Set.

I began with this notebook. First I removed the coils. Then, I traced the size of the notebook on the back of one of the sticky sheets in the craft set. I stuck the sheet to the cover and wrapped it around so it began and ended on the back of the cover.

I added the 3D embellishments that came in the kit and used the alphas for my title.

I wrapped a cord from my stash around the cover to finish it off and then replaced the coils.

There you have it! Easy-peasy! There is also a lot left over in the craft set so I will be using it to decorate the inside of my notebook during my travels. Thanks for checking out this post and happy travels!

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

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! Julie with you here today to share an altered project I made using a Paper House Craft Set! These are so fun and easy to use!I started with this “B,” that I found at an antique store! I painted it  and tused the Baby Girl Craft Set to add some fun!

And here is what I turned this “B” into!  This is for a decor item for my daughter Brookie.67

I added some 3D Stickers to decorate the letter a little more.69

Adding her name to the spools was a great way to add some detail.71

It all came together to make a beautiful addition for my daughter’s room.74

These are so easy to apply and I really loved how this turned out (and so does my daughter!)  It is self adhesive, and it I love how smoothly it went on my project!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Hello Baby Picture Frame Using Pen Blades

CarolynCircle2

Hello everyone! Carolyn here today with a simple and fun picture frame that can be given as a new baby gift or a project for a special picture. The new Craft Sets from Paper House pair perfectly with the penblades!

Baby frame PH1Supply List: Hello Baby Girl Craft Set,  Hello Baby Girl Paper Crafting Kit, Pen Blades.

Baby Frame PH3

I began with this old wood frame that is meant for crafting. I painted it a long time ago and never liked it. I decided to use the craft set and Pen Blades to bring it back to life. This image shows the decal paper that comes in the kit, the layered stickers, alphas and Pen Blades.

Baby Frame PH5I wrapped the craft paper around the frame while folding down the corners. I used the #11 Pen Blade to cut the window out of the frame. It was so sharp and so easy to control.

Baby Frame PH2

I pushed the sticky paper into the corners and used the Pen Blade to cut off the excess.

Baby Frame PH4

I finished it off with lots of embellishments. I made the accordion flower by scoring a  strip of paper in intervals and then folding them into a flower shape. I’m so happy to be enjoying this frame again and that you could join me today.

Have a wonderful day!

The World is Wide Home Decor

Hello! Samantha with you to share a piece of wall art I created with Paper House’s Travel Craft Set and a PenBlade. We love to travel, so this The World is Wide home decor piece is perfect for my living room wall.

 

Supplies: Travel Craft Set, #15 PenBlade

I started my project by printing out my saying on regular computer paper. Then I used a bit of temporary adhesive to help hold my printed words to my sticker sheet. The sticker sheet I picked is one of 3 different printed full sheet stickers that come in the Travel Craft Set. I used my PenBlade to cut out my words. I used the #15 PenBlade because it is super sharp and very thin, which makes it perfect for precision cuts.

I used a bit of transfer tape (like you’d use on decorative vinyl) to transfer my letters to a piece of wood that I stained. You don’t need to uses transfer tape for this step, it just made it a bit faster and easier for me to line ever thing up.

I used some of the 3-d and enamel stickers that come in the Travel Craft Set to decorate my piece. It’s so nice that all the coordinating bits come in one box! Adding dimensional stickers to a flat piece of home decor really helps it pop.

All completed, this The World is Wide home decor piece is a fun way to add a personal touch to your walls. Do you like to travel far and wide? Save
