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.
Hello! Samantha here today with a Great Outdoors layout created with one of my all time favorite Paper House collections. We’ve had an abnormally warm September and October this year, and we’re taking every opportunity to enjoy time outside.
Aptly named “Great Outdoors,” this collection is one of my absolute favorite for scrapping any outdoor photos. While it’s often habit to reach for the gorgeous Autumn Woods collection, Great Outdoors is another fabulous option for scrapping any outdoor activities any time of the year.
You can get the Great Outdoors as part of a themed kit (Hunting, Fishing, or Camping), or you can get individual sheets of patterned paper. The kits come with a set of card stock stickers and a set of 3D stickers, as well. The card stock sticker sheet can only be found in the kits, while papers and 3D stickers can be purchased separately.
I started my layout by layering the patterned papers I wanted to use. Then I added the flat card stock stickers from the sheet included in the Great Outdoors kits. There are coordinating alphas on the sheet that are perfect for creating a title. After I had every flat embellishment on my layout, I added texture with rice paper borders, and epoxy and puffy stickers. As a finishing touch, I added the epoxy clip to my photo.
Whether its spring, summer, or fall outside photos look wonderful scrapped with the Great Outdoors collection.
Hello! Samantha here today with a happy Halloween layout. I’m a pretty organized person, and I so love all the fun from fall through Christmas. To keep this time of year a bit more stress free, I actually use a binder that I organize at least 100 days before Christmas to plan out all of our Halloween through Christmas fun. Putting together my binder for this year got me so excited to start crafting and scrapping for Halloween that I just had to pull out a photo from last year and get documenting!
The Wicked Good Halloween collection from Paper House is just so fun. It has all of your favorite Halloween icons like ghosts, pumpkins, witches, candy corn, skulls, and spiders, and it does a fantastic job of walking that line between not too cutesy and not too creepy. It really makes these papers and embellishments perfect for scrapping everyone from little kids to adults. My only complaint is that there are so many great embellishments that I couldn’t find a way to use them all on this layout (I didn’t even get a chance to use the fabulous Halloween Washi).
I maximized my embellishment use by placing them in groups around my photo. This way I got to use many of the embellishments, but they draw your eye to the photo instead of taking focus away from it. I also used a stick on pocket as a journaling tag. You’ll need a marker that is permanent on slick surfaces if you’d like to try this trick for yourself.
Hi crafty friends! Natalie here with you on this last day of September sharing my favorite way to include numerous photos on a scrapbook page. I love to use pocket pages. They can house so many pictures without any hassle of figuring out how the layout will look.
Hello! Samantha here with you. There are so many great project ideas on the Paper House Pinterest page, that it makes it the perfect place to go when you need a little creative inspiration. Today I’ve got a Pinterest inspired 2 page layout to share with you.
I took the split page set up and 2 photo placement from Carolyn’s layout.
I also copied her use of stick-on pockets as a design element.
I took inspiration from Julie’s use of a big circle on her layout and her use of 3 vertical photos.
I also drew inspiration from her cluster of embellishments underneath the center photo.
I love drawing inspiration from other people! There are so many wonderful, talented paper crafters out there. So next time you get stuck or need a little crafty inspiration, check out Paper House’s Pinterest page…you might just find an idea for your next project!Save
Hi there Paper House fans! Are you like me and just running around checking things off your list!?! Today I have 10 easy Christmas Cards that you can make with supplies from the Christmas Joy Collection!
Happy Holidays! Samantha here with you. I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I LOVE this time of year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you’re like me, you love adding a hand made touch to your gifts, especially if you giving something like a gift card. Today I have a handmade Christmas card with gift card holder to share with you.
As always, Christmas Joy has so many fantastic coordinating embellishments that I had a hard time choosing just a few to use. I love adding embellishments in a collage style cluster. It’s a great way to get lots of embellishments on the card without it feeling cluttered.
For a simple yet pretty way to hold a gift card add a coordinating Stick on Pocket on the inside of the card.
How do you like to ad hand made touches to your holiday gifting?
Here’s a closer look at some of the fun puffy stickers I used. I mounted the three onto a 3/4 in” circle punched from some cardstock.
Here’s a look at the title I designed. You can also see the fun Washi tape I used. I love that it has some shine to it.
I used a couple of the puffy stickers to dress up the photos.
Here’s a look at the fish I cut out and used some sequins to add a little fun. You can also see on the corner of the picture I used a little banner and another of the puffy stickers.
Here’s a closer look at the fun sign. I decorated it with some of the epoxy stickers. I used the moon and stars as it was some night time fishing that they did.
Here is a closer look at one of the big catches of the night…. a sting ray. Don’t worry, they didn’t hurt him. They had to reel him in so they could carefully get him untangled from the net and then they let him go. It was quite an amazing catch though.
Well that about covers it for today. Be sure to stop back by and check out what the rest of the super talented designers are up to! It is truly amazing how creative these gals are!
Until the next time, Have a wonderfully crafty day!
Welcome to Day Three of the Paper House/Tombow Fall Blog Hop! We’ve got lots of Tricks and lots of Treats to share with you all week long. Today we have two ideas for you on how to combine our products with Tombow! Once you check those out be sure to scroll down to find out about our giveaway!
Two Page Halloween Scrapbook Layout
Carolynback today with a double page layout using the latest Halloween collection from Paper House Productions called Wicked Good. It has so many fun stickers that can be used in planners or on layouts. We have also teamed up with Tombow to show you some of their cool products.
I cut the spider webs and title from black and orange cardstock using my Cameo. The title comes from the Silhouette store. I decided to focus on thin, complicated cut files so I could try out the Tombow Mono Glue Pen. It was so easy to run it across the web and letters for a very thin line of glue. I usually make a big mess with my adhesives but this worked like a charm! The glue is very thin so the only recommendation I have is to use it quickly so it doesn’t dry. I then used the black TWINTONE dual-tip marker for the journaling. I used the thicker tip so my writing stood out but the fine tip is very handy to have for more precise work.
Fall Bullet Journal Spread
Hi everyone! Christine joining you to share a Fall Bullet Journal Spread. I’ve been loving all the bullet journals I have been seeing lately and decided a new pack of Tombow TwinTone Markers was the perfect reason to try it out!
I really enjoyed this process and decided I would designate my Free Spirit Planner for my bullet journaling creations. It worked perfectly! Let’s take a closer look at the two sides of my spread.
I incorporated the Rice Paper Borders, Planner Stickers, Epoxy Stickers, and Epoxy Clips. It was fun to have all the options.
I really love this side, I think because of the stick-on pocket! Bullet journaling has such a practical organizing side as well as memory keeping. It also can allow for a lot of creativity – I think I will really enjoy dabbling in it!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
