This Is Us Cards

Hello! Samantha here with something new. Today I’m combining some pretty patterned paper and stickers to create a pair of encouragement cards using the new This Is Us line.

Supplies: Sundrenched A Day at the Beach Foil Paper, This Is Us Bright Self Care Embellished Sticker, Be the Change Embellished Sticker, Just Be You Washi Tape Set, White Card Stock

There are lots of Paper House paper collections that match with a wide variety of the This Is Us collection (Marbellous, Colorwashed, and Stargazer are just a few of them), so the first step was choosing which paper and sticker combo I wanted. I decided on an encouragement theme, and since it’s summer right now, I wanted some bright and cheery encouragment cards. I noticed that papers from Sundrenched fit the bill; they matched the stickers and were bright and cheery.

There are a lot of different types of stickers as part of This Is Us, but I’ve found that 3D stickers make wonderful focal points for cards. Not only do they stand out because they’re 3D, but they often have glitter or foiling (or both) that really draws the eye to them.

I felt like both cards needed just a little something more, so I added a strip of washi tape for a pop of contrasting color and texture.

These are the first cards I created with This Is Us, but since there are so many great choices, I know they won’t be the last!

Family Swim Layout

Hello! Samantha here with a summery layout. Today I’m combining some of the newer tropical print papers with stickers from the brand new and super popular This is Us collection for a fun family swim layout.

Supplies: Flamingos Double Sided Paper, Flamingo Tags Double Sided Paper, Tropical Beach Double Sided Paper, Sundrenched Cardstock Multi Pack, Neon Tropical Faux Enamel Stickers, Mommy Lhey Blush Washi Tape Set, Just Be You Mini Sticker Book, Just Be You Weekly Kit

My youngest kiddo has always wanted a pool in the backyard. I’ve always said no, because they kill the grass and are a lot of work, and we have plenty of other places to swim. Well, this year with the extra long summer break, I was the one asking for the pool. We love having it and have spent lots of family time in it already!

I love the bright tropical prints in the Flamingo collection. The saturated pinks with the teal-y blue makes me happy just looking at it. I’ve found these prints really easy to mix, match, and layer too!

For embellishments, I started with some word stickers from the new This Is Us line. There are so many great stickers in this collection with lots of different color families and style “feels” that you’re bound to find something that matches your layout and your personality. While these stickers are super popular for planners, there are so many additional ways to use the This Is Us line! I also added a bit of Mommy Lhey washi tape and some gorgeous faux enamel stickers. The gold on the faux enamel stickers always adds something special to any layout.

To finish off the flower I added a rose sticker from the Flamingo Colorways collection cardstock sticker sheet. I also used the word Joyful at the bottom corner of the card.I am hopeful this card will be a joy to someone.

 Hi everyone! Melissa here with an art journal page for you.  I love the detail and intense colors of Paper House products, so I made a stunning pink dahlia image the center of the project from one of their patterned papers.

Supplies Used:

I used a page of a  9 x 12 watercolor book to support all the media I wanted to use. I prepped the page with white gesso, followed by texture paste applied through some paper die cuts.  I used pink shimmery watercolor, and water soluble oil pastels. I didn’t have  sprays in the colors I wanted to use, so I mixed what I had with water, and brushed a lot on the diamond texture. I tipped the page in different directions, let the color run all over, misted it with water to soften and blend it, and used a heat gun to dry it. I used the same process for the green. I glued the beautiful flower image onto a piece of paper and put it on the page. To add more texture I added glass glitter, micro beads, seed beads, and threads that I pulled from a piece of gauze. I lightly brushed the pink pastel crayon over the diamond texture along the outer edges of the page, and misted it. I added green watercolor randomly in between the diamonds.  If any of the  colors ran together I blotted them off with a paper towel. I flicked on green and pink paint in random places.

To add more visual interest I put on butterfly and rose stickers, rub-ons, flowers, bling, stamps, a cut up black and white vintage photo, and die cuts.

The page looked too busy, so I brushed white gesso over some areas.I lightly brushed white gesso over the surface of the diamonds to accent the texture.

I don’t really like a mat white look, so I brushed pearl mica powder over all the areas I’d used gesso.

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

I loved making banners with the patterned paper. I also matted the butterfly sticker to cardstock that way I could use the image to make a embellishment once it been cut out. Just look how cute the chandelier looks in the corner hanging..I just love it!

Hey there Paper House Fans!

Lisa here with you today to share a project I created using ColorWays Flamingo Collection. This is one of my favorite ColorWays collection! I created this frame to give to my daughter before she heads off to college this fall.

When I saw that I had to create an off the page project this month, I was a bit nervous, as I don’t do a lot of these. I had purchased a basic frame at Michaels about a year ago and decided this was the time to use it!

Here is what I came up with:

Paper House Frame

Believe Photo Frame Supplies:

Paper House Frame close up 1

I started by painting my frame using white acrylic paint. Then I cut my papers so that they looked matted. Then I added some stitching.

Paper House Frame close up 3

I created my clusters using items from my stash and some of the Paper House awesome Puffy Stickers! I popped the “She believed she could, so she did” Cardstock sticker on foam tape to give some dimension and to add in front of the flowers.

I just love this believe Puffy Sticker! This is actually what inspired the theme of my frame.

I love how this frame turned out and will trying a few more off the page projects soon!

 

Prom

Hello there Paper House Fans!  Lisa with you today to share a layout I created using Paper House goodies.  We had Prom last month at school. This was my daughters last high school dance, kind of bittersweet for both of us!

I combined the Flamingo and Noir ColorWays Collections for this fun page:

Prom layout supplies:

I started my layout out by placing the Noir paper on the Flamingo Palm Tree paper. Then I cut 4 of the cards and placed them on my page. I adore the gold frame and just had to use it! That was actually how this layout came about.

Check out this “Today was the best day” card! More black and gold yumminess!

I added some tangled thread, more black and gold accents from the Noir Accent Pack and some gold mist spatters.

I cut a few of the strips of papers from the Edgings and Trimmings Papers and added those to the right side of my page, using a punch on one of them. I added some black stitching to make it pop. How about that pretty pink butterfly? That is a sticker that I adhered to cardstock and then glued only the center of it so that the wings popped off the page.

Prom close up 5

I used a few of the accent pieces and popped them up with foam tape to give my layout some dimension.

I love the contrast of the Flamingo collection against the Noir collection with the pops of gold! It’s so stunning and perfect for these photos!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with us!

Hello there scrappy friends!  How often do you scrap a layout about yourself?  Years ago, I didn’t scrap any photos of me, but that has been one of my resolutions for the last few years. Besides, selfies are popular now, so snap away 🙂  Today I am sharing a layout I created using the gorgeous Flamingo ColorWays collection and yes, a selfie of me!

I used my Cameo to cut the cut file and then backed the squares with different Flamingo ColorWays patterned papers. I love the outcome!
