Thanksgiving Containers

Hello! Samantha here today with some Thanksgiving containers. These containers are perfect for gifting snack mixes or sending home leftovers from your Thanksgiving feast.

Supplies: Autumn Woods Woodland Friends, Autumn Woods Pumpkin Spice, Autumn Woods Washi, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Border Stickers, Autumn Woods Flake Stickers, Give Thanks 3D Stickers

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.

Any of the papers from Autumn Woods works great for covering the lids. I used a mix of embellishments from Autumn Woods and some Thanksgiving themed stickers to embellish the tops as well.

Christmas Joy Scrapbook Layout

CarolynCircle2

Are you getting excited for Christmas?! I sure am! It’s Carolyn back today with a scrapbook layout using the Christmas Joy collection. There are so many fun stickers and pretty papers, this layout was easy to make.

Supplies for Christmas Joy Layout: Christmas Memories 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Merry and Bright 3D Sticker, Christmas Magic Cardstock Multi Pack, Christmas Flake Stickers, Christmas Puffy Clips, Christmas Stick On Pockets, Peace Joy and Love 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook PaperChristmas Joy Tags 12″ Double Sided Foil Scrapbook Paper.

I began with these two pictures of super excited children eagerly awaiting their gifts. I really love the Christmas Memories paper so I used it as my background. I cut out the wreath with my Silhouette Cameo using the Peace Joy Love paper. Next I layered the stripe paper behind my photos. On the other side of the photos, I used the poinsettia stick on pockets. The holly leaf stick on pocket is perfect for holding one of my pictures.

Can you find the flake stickers on my layout? They blend in so perfectly, it is hard to tell they are not part of the pictures. The star on the tree, the Santa hat, the holly leaves and four of the presents are flake stickers.

To finish the layout I used a 3D title and pulled the puffy clip present off the clip to add dimension. There are also cardstock stickers for some sentiments, the date and star embellishments.

Make sure to stop by the Paper House Shop to pick-up some Christmas goodies! Have a wonderful, scrappy holiday season!

Christmas Card with Gift Card Holder

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.

Supplies: Christmas Joy Tags, Christmas Joy Gold Dot, Christmas Joy Merry & Bright 3D Sticker, Christmas Joy Rice Paper Border Sticker, Christmas Joy Stick On Pockets, Christmas Joy Flake Stickers, Christmas Joy Epoxy Stickers

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?

The bootiful Acetate Paper made the perfect canvas for adding mixed media to my layout and I will definitely be incorporating this technique in the future.  How about those green foil eyes on the spider?!? Too Much Fun!  And of course that fussy cut ghost – those really helped pull the whole layout together.

Happy Haunting Friends!

Fishing Scrapbook Layout with the Great Outdoors

CarolynCircle2It’s Carolyn here today with a fishy layout for you. Did you get to enjoy the great outdoors this summer? I got to spend lots of time at the lake so I have lots of memories to document. I’m so in love with the new Great Outdoors Collection. There is a camping set, a hunting set and a fishing set. I used the fishing set to document my daughter’s attempt to make a catch. She didn’t have any luck but it was a beautiful day and lots of fun. I’m going to show you how I put this layout together.

Supplies for Fishing Layout: The Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Crafting Kit, Outdoors Puffy Stickers, Outdoors Flake Stickers

I began by choosing three photos of our fishing trip. Since two of them were similar, I decided I would separate the page into two sections. I love how the top picture fits the boat. I played around with paper options and decided on these three as my background.

fish2PH

I used a piece of white cardstock as my base. I trimmed my papers using the cardstock as a size guide.

fish3PH

I pondered matting my photos with the orange paper but decided it would be too much. So I trimmed the sides off the layout and added orange down the sides.

fish4PH

I added my photos and the cardstock frame sticker. The sentiment is a cut apart card trimmed to fit the frame. There were three cards that fit but I finally settled on this one because the green color balanced the layout.

fish5PH

I added some blue paper behind the frame to finish the background.

fish6PH

Now the fun part – embellishing! I used many of the 3D stickers that come in the kit and some Great Outdoors puffy stickers. I tried to draw the eye from right to left diagonally across the top half of the page then left to right across the bottom. I made sure to use the “one that got away” sticker since my daughter didn’t catch anything. And how cool is that fishing rod? I used some flake fish stickers on the end. The final touch was to add some journaling at the top along with the date.

There you have it! I just love the bright colors in this collection and the pretty patterns. I already have ideas for the rest of my kit. Thanks for following along the tutorial and have a great day.

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!

Autumn Woods Scrapbook Layout

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! Julie here today sharing a layout I made using the gorgeous ‘Autumn Woods’ collection!  Fall is my favorite season, which is pretty funny, since I live in Arizona, and it feels like ‘summer’ here for 6 months out of the year, so I do live for those cooler ‘Fall’ days we have here! Because it is my favorite season, I have always gravitated towards Fall themed scrapbook papers, and the ‘Autumn Woods’ collection is seriously my fave! The colors are gorgeous and I love the designs! Let’s take a look at my Autumn Woods Scrapbook Layout

Fall Themed Traveler’s Notebook using Autumn Woods

CarolynCircle2Carolyn back again to show you the Autumn Woods Life Organized Collection. I used a traveler’s notebook to document a trip through a neighbour’s property. He is 95 years old and has the coolest yard in town. We visited during the fall so this collection is perfect for this adventure. I completed three different spreads in the notebook.

Autumn Woods Traveler's Notebook

Supplies for Autumn Woods Traveler’s Notebook: Autumn Woods Epoxy Clips, Autumn Woods Puffy Stickers, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Border Stickers, Autumn Woods Flake Stickers, Autumn Woods Stick On Pockets, Autumn Woods Washi Tape, Autumn Woods Puffy Clips, Family Planner Stickers, Lake Life Paper Crafting Kit, Autumn Woods Cardstock Stickers, Autumn Woods 12″ Paper, Autumn Air 12″ Paper, Paradise Found 12″ Cardstock Stickers

Autumn Woods Traveler's Notebook

I used a little bit of everything in my notebook and mixed in alphas and papers from other collections too. The first spread has some fussy cutting of the leaves and the pretty stick-on pocket. For the second spread, I used Lake Life papers and a cut file to create the background. I wanted something that looked like a maze so this tree cookie was perfect! Again, I think I almost used one of everything in this collection on this spread. The Life Organized products are great for a traveler’s notebook since planners are about the same size.

Autumn Woods Traveler's Notebook

This is my favourite page with the washi tape acting as a border and the guffelwarf pictures! I hope you take a moment to read the journaling and check out how cute the different products look all clustered together.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Autumn Woods Pull Out Scrapbook Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. Today I’m sharing a layout that has a little something extra to it. I like to call this style of layout a pull out layout. Don’t stop at the first photo, keep scrolling down to see the hidden fun this Autumn Woods pull out layout is hiding.

Supplies: Autumn Woods Autumn Air, Autumn Woods Pumpkin Spice, Autumn Woods Autumn Woods, Autumn Woods Puffy Sticker, Autumn Woods Epoxy Sticker, Autumn Woods Cardstock Stickers, Autumn Woods Flake Stickers, Autumn Woods Washi Tape, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Border Stickers, and Discover Italy Cardstock Multi Pack

So here’s the extra fun part of the layout: The photo pulls out to show 4 more photos! The simple accordion folded paper turns this layout into a hybrid mini album layout. Plus, it’s a great way to get lots of photos onto one layout!

If you’re like me an love embellishments, this also gives you a great way to use lots of embellishments on one layout while still keeping that clean and simple feel.

If you haven’t check out the new Autumn Woods planner line yet, you are going to love it. The stickers, washi tape, and borders make fantastic embellishments for layouts using the Autumn Woods paper collection.

I especially like the way the washi tape from this collection looks paired with the rice paper border stickers. I love how the semi-opaque look of the washi offsets the soft, solid look of the rice paper.

Creating a pull out layout lets you get the best of both mini albums and layouts in one place, and can help you scrap lots of photos quickly!
