Football Layout

Hello! Samantha here today with a football layout. I don’t know about you, but in our house fall means lots of football; playing and cheering on our favorite teams. Until this year, my kids only played flag football. This year is my oldest son’s first year of tackle football, so I definitely needed to document his first game.

Supplies: All Star Paper Pad, Football 3D Stickers, Football Mixed Stickers, Football Cardstock Stickers, Football Faux Enamel Stickers

This is one of those layouts where the wide variety of stickers that Paper House carries really helps make the layout come together. Because I chose the big, all over football print as my base for this layout, I had to keep the rest of my paper choices pretty neutral. I went with a football turf green paper for one accent and a blue paper for my second accent (my son’s school colors are black, blue, and white).

To help add pizazz to this layout, I added quite a few stickers in different textures and finishes to tell the story. I layered flat alpha stickers over a card stock football sticker. I put a faux enamel arrow pointing to my son in the sea of Nighthawk football players, so I’ll always remember which one he was. I layered clear metallic stickers over the photo. I also added some 3D and chipboard stickers to add more texture.

Many of the football stickers and some of the patterned paper from All Star have touches of metallic gold or silver to them which really helps tie everything together into one cohesive layout.

Whether you’re cheering on a favorite team or a favorite player, Paper House has all the football stickers and papers you need to document your team spirit.

Makes You Happy Foil Paper encouragement cards!

Hi Lisa here to share with you some quick and easy encouragement cards I made to keep in my purse using the Makes You Happy foiled paper from the Colorwashed collection. These cards do not open and on the back I like to add a piece of graph paper so I can hand write a personal note to the recipient. Here are my cards:

Supplies Used: Makes You Happy Foil Paper; Butterflies washi tape; Butterflies faux enamel stickers; Succulent Faux enamel stickers; Summer fun washi tape set, butterflies washi tape set; Llama washi tape set

These cut apart cards make even the novice paper crafter look like a pro!! You can go SUPER simple with these cards like I did with this one. This card was just cut apart from the larger paper sheet and then I added a strip of washi tape from the Butterflies washi tape set along the side of the card. To dress it up even more and to bring out the gold foil on the word “happy” I added an offset faux enamel butterfly sticker! This fun quote is sure to encourage someone and brighten their day!!

On my next card I stepped it up a bit and added a stamped quote on a piece of graph paper mounted on card stock. I then embellished my stamped quote by adding a doily under the top left corner of the quote. I added two faux enamel butterflies to this card of different sizes and at opposite corners to add visual interest and offset the larger doily. Nothing adds a finished look more easily then washi tape. I added two strips of washi tape from the butterflies washi tape set & the Llama washi tape set to balance out the card. This shows you how well the washi tape from different collections works so well together!!

The next card definitely took more time and was a bit more complex. For this card I layered two sizes of cards from the Makes You Happy foiled paper. I hand wrote my scripture and offset it using washi tape from the Summer fun washi tape set. I then added 2 adorable succulent faux enamel stickers to balance out my card and give it lots of sparkle and shine!

I hope these cards give you an idea of how you can make something look gorgeous with just a little bit of work. Remember many of the amazing Paper House products coordinate very well together to give your projects that stunning look of a a pro crafter who spent hours creating a special project! Why not create a few of these fun cards to keep on hand when your friends need a little pick me up??!!

Harry Potter Card and Matching Envelope

Hello! Samantha here with you. In case you didn’t know, I am a full on lover of all things Harry Potter. However, even if you’re not a crazy fan like me, you probably have someone in your life who is. Today I’m sharing a Harry Potter card and matching envelope that you can create for that HP fan in your life.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope Small

Supplies: Harry Potter™ Gryffindor Tags Foil Paper, Harry Potter™ Hogwarts at Night Foil Paper, Harry Potter™ Chibi Faux Enamel Stickers, Harry Potter™ Planner Stickers, Black Card Stock, Gold Card Stock, Dimensional Adhesive

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-004 Small

I really wanted these cute Chibi stickers to take front and center, so I framed them with the Harry Potter™ Gryffindor Tags Foil Paper and some gold card stock. It’s hard to do these awesome faux enamel stickers justice in a photo, but (as I hope you can see) these stickers are framed in gorgeous shiny gold. There are so many cute Harry Potter Chibi stickers that you could easily customize your card for the recipient by switching out the characters I chose for your recipients favorite characters.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-003 Small

I used Harry Potter™ Hogwarts at Night Foil Paper for my background and layered it all on a black card stock base. I left a greeting off the outside of the card. This lends to the clean appearance and allows me to customize the greeting on the inside of the card to match the occasion. The final size of my Harry Potter card measures 6″ long by 3″ tall.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-001 Small

To complete this set, I created a matching envelope for the card. You can send fun patterned paper envelopes like this through the mail as long as the address is clear. I used the Harry Potter™ Planner Stickers to create space for both send to and return address.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-002 Small

This Harry Potter card and matching envelope may not be your Hogwarts letter, but it still should be a pretty fun piece of mail to receive!

Bible Journaling with Faux Enamel Stickers

Hi it’s Lisa here today to share with you one of my favorite things to use in my journaling bible…faux enamel stickers! These stickers have such shine and glam up any project! They also add dimension to your projects, but without all the bulk! This is great not only for bible journaling but for many other types of creative projects! When I was studying this verse I immediately thought of the beautiful Succulent faux enamel stickers.

Supplies Used: Succulent Faux Enamel stickers; Summer Fun washi tape; Panda 3D stickers (heart); butterflies faux enamel stickers

I tend to like to journal only in the margins provided for me so I don’t like to use any stickers that are to large. The adorable glitter heart is from the 3D panda sticker set & is the perfect size to act as a lovely accent for my cactus. I love using the thin washi tape to break up my white space and separate my handwritten notes from the title I created using letter stickers. Here is a close up of the lovely gold foiled washi tape that is from the Summer fun washi tape collection, I use this washi tape a lot!

In this picture you can also see the lovely gold faux enamel butterfly sticker. I love how most of the sticker sets have stickers of varying sizes so you are able to have extra tiny ones to add in those little white spaces that just need a bit of sparkle or shine!! The micro stickers are also perfect for these tiny accents but this faux enamel butterfly sticker kept with the faux enamel look that the succulent stickers gave my page.

I would love to have you follow me on Instagram – I’m lisantexas there! I share a lot of different paper projects using the amazing Paper House stickers and other products there! You can also use my code PH19LISA to get 20% off your next sticker order!! Happy creating!

Marbelous Birthday Cards

Hello! Samantha here, and today I have something a little bit different for you. I have a set of 3 Marbelous birthday cards. I wanted to show you how many different options you have for card making with Paper House Stickers. All the cards use Marbelous paper as their base, they all use the same basic layout for the card, and they’re all even the same theme. However, by mixing and matching different types of stickers you get very different looks for each card.

Since I’m sharing 3 different cards today, I’ll share a photo of each individual card and list the supplies right afterwards.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Birthday 3D Stickers, Kawaii Hearts Faux Enamel Stickers

This is the most elegant of the cards. I chose a to use some of the Marbelous card stock that has gold foil to match the gold in the 3D sticker and faux enamel stickers.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Emoji Birthday 3D Sticker, Kawaii Not? Washi Tape, Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers, Kawaii Cupcakes Puffy Clips

This card is a bit more fun. I created texture by using a puffy clip for my focal point and a 3D sticker for my greeting. To create the border I paired a shiny silver rice paper with some cupcake washi tape.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Magical Faux Enamel Sticker,Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers

This last card is completely whimsical, as I made it with my soon to be 5 year old niece in mind. A little rainbow rice paper is the perfect starting point for some magical stickers. This card uses mostly flat stickers (I sneaked in a small enamel heart) to make it easy to mail, but the fun faux enamel sticker adds a special touch to the card.

There you have it; a trio of Marbelus birthday cards.

Scrapping Night Photos With Stargazer

Hello! Samantha here with you. When we travel, we love checking out the different cities at night, so I have quite a few night photos. Today I wanted to show how easy it is to scrap night photos with Stargazer.

Scrapping Night Photos with Stargazer

Supplies: Stargazer Night Sky Foil Paper, Stargazer Foil Paper, Stargazer Shine Bright Foil Paper, Stargazer Ultra Violet Foil Paper, Stargazer Dream Big Cardstock Stickers, Enjoy Puffy Sticker

Scrapping Night Photos with Stargazer-002

This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to use the Stargazer papers, and they are just so beautiful. There are gold foil accents on all of the papers that make this collection extra special. The deep, moody colors and night sky theme of Stargazer lend themselves perfectly to scrapping night photos.

Scrapping Night Photos with Stargazer-003

My oldest and I took a nighttime selfie together on a pedestrian bridge when we were on a recent weekend trip to Omaha. The bridge lights up at night and adds just the right amount of back light for a photo. This bridge is always one of our favorite stops, and is that much better at night!

Because night photos tend to be a bit dark, I built my layout around a piece of Stargazer paper that had a lot of white to it to keep the whole layout from looking really dark. I framed my picture with a Stargazer paper that had more purple/indigo tones than blue tones since our night photo happened to have blue back light. Coordinating without matching helps the photo pop on the layout instead of fading into the background.

Scrapping Night Photos with Stargazer-001

I finished up my layout by adding a few dimensional stickers, Stargazer cardstock stickers, and Stargazer journaling tags.

Scrapbooking with Faux Enamels

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today, and I’m sharing one of my favorites from Paper House!  Their gorgeous Faux Enamels are a bright, beautiful addition to any project, and are so fun to work with!

 

Today I’ve got a birthday LO to share using the Birthday Faux Enamel Stickers:

Enameled Birthday PH 2018 by Laura C

The Paper House Faux Enamels are so bright and colorful, they are a great match for the Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad that has such rich, beautiful colors that really pop. It makes for a simple, cute layout when you use the journal box page and mat on a contrasting color paper to make this grid type LO.

Enameled close up #1

You can use the Faux Enamels as photo accents as I did here….sticking it right to the photo.  The details on these stickers are amazing!  Look at the adorable birthday cake with it’s little candles, and each sticker outlined in a pretty gold that give it the enameled look. So many cute stickers in one package of the Faux Enamels!

enameled close up #2

The colors even coordinate well with the Paper House Emoji Birthday 3D Stickers…..it adds a nice touch with the faux enameled packages.

enameled close up #3

The Paper House Numbered Candles Puffy Stickers give you all the options to create a LO or birthday card, or whatever you’d like, customized to any age.  Love bright, colorful, fun embellishments!  They add so much to a LO!  It’s one of my favorite things about Paper House…..they have embellishments and stickers for just about everything and they all coordinate!
