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.
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
It’s already Day Four of our team up with Xyron! We’re thrilled to be teaming up to share beautiful family themed projects here, on facebook, and all our social media outlets! We can’t have a fun Co-Hop and not give away a fabulous prize – be sure to check out all the details at the bottom of this post! We’ve got double the inspiration today with Carolyn & Shannon up to share!
Let’s get today started with Carolyn!
This week we have teamed up with Xyron to feature family projects. The One Big Happy Family Collection has everything – stickers, transparencies, frames, cut aparts and themed pieces for every member of the family. I used the Xyron tape runner to stick all my papers together. Then I used the sticker maker to turn the floral circle paper on the top left corner into a sticker. Here are some images to show how easy and fun this is.
Shannon traveled down the baby route for her family themed layout!
I am so excited to share this layout with you! What better way to celebrate Xyron and Paper House Productions collaborating than with a celebratory layout! I am celebrating being asked to be Drew Hudson’s Godmother! What an honor, and I am so excited to share that with you. Paper House Productions has a fantastic collection to commemorate this, Hello Baby. There are so many ways to use this collection, the versatility is amazing. Xyron adhesives are wonderful, they cover so nicely, and adhere as much or as little as needed. There are so many adhesive options too! Make sure you check it out!
Carolyn back today with two baby cards. I’m so lucky to have a new boy and girl join the extended family last month. Of course I needed to make cards with the Hello Baby collections. The cards are 6″ x 6″ which I found easy to work with since I almost always make 12″ x 12″ layouts.
For the boy card, I cut out a rattle handle using my Silhouette Cameo. I made a circle in the grid paper and put a cut apart card behind it. I spelled the baby’s name with the cardstock stickers. Then I fused a plastic pouch of sequins and slid it behind the open circle. Some flags and embroidery thread finished it off.
Here is the inside of the card. I like opening a card and seeing something beyond the writing so I cut several circles from the paper in the kit and added a sticker.
Here is the girl card. I used my Silhouette to cut the star out of the stripped paper and slid a plastic shaker of star sequins behind it. I wanted it to pop off the page more so I outlined it in black. I cut the words out of a cut apart card in the kit and used puffy and cardstock stickers to embellish.
I continued the sentiment from the front of the card on the inside. And I made use of that star I cut out! A few more stickers and it is done.
Thanks for checking out this post and have a great day!
Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. Today, I am working with the adorable Hello Baby Papercrafting Kit, the Boy version. There is also an adorable Girl version of this Kit. This collection is perfect for documenting little ones. I am scrapping a photo of my youngest son Ryan, this was taken at the hospital right after he was born. He is crying his little eyes out and he just looks so cute. I decided to print the photo in black and white.
I began by cutting down one of the 12×12 patterned papers, the one with the colorful stripes, into rectangles, the same size as my photo. I created a grid down the center of the page. I used another patterned paper with colorful polka dots on it as my background. I cut out some images from the cut apart sheets and used them as a mat behind my photo.
I used the sticker sheet quite a bit. I used the 12×12 borders and cut them down to fit over three of my grid pieces. I also added some of the phrase stickers. I fussy cut the “Baby” banner from one of the patterned papers and that became part of my tittle.
I scattered around the sticker stars as well as some of the puffy stickers. I finished off the layout by cutting two strips of the orange patterned paper with the yellow circles on it and added a strip to each side of the layout.
I also punched out some of those circles and clustered them on the left hand side of my photo as well as added them to the ends of my banner tittle.
There is a video tutorial on my channel if you’d like to watch.
I love how this turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by today! XOXO -Katty
Carolyn here today. If you ever need a gift for a newborn, look no further than the Paper House Flipbooks. These photo albums are so easy to create and so much fun to use. There are pages that fold out, pockets to fill and even a CD pouch. They are also decorated so you can embellish as much or as little as you like.
I am so lucky to have a new nephew. I wanted to make an album for him so I asked my sister-in-law for photos, and boy, she didn’t disappoint. She is a fabulous photographer. I began by selecting which pictures to place in each spot and then embellished the album one page at a time. I’ve selected a few pages to highlight but to look at the full album, be sure to check out the attached video.
Hello Everyone!! I’m so excited to show you my first work in this post with Paper House Productions! I’m Renee Timmerman and to start out my time with Paper House, I’m working with the Baby Boy collection!! Isn’t it just precious??
I thought this collection would be perfect for my best friend’s new baby!! What a great way to document all his first moments for her.
For this layout- I think there isn’t anything from this collection I didn’t touch! I love manipulating everything – making use out of every piece I can!!
For this layout, like I said I utilized literally every piece I could. I love cut apart sheets for multiple purpose uses besides the common pocket scrapbooking! They are perfect for layering behind the photo! I’m a bit of a layering fanatic, you’ll come to see. I also love them as some “premade” journaling, as well as base for clusters of embellishments.
Did I mention that I love cut aparts also to fussy cut out the designs to make as my own embellishments? Granted I can’t cut completely smooth, but that’s what makes it look more homemade, tee hee ;). I couldn’t get enough of the cute puffy stickers as well as cardstock stickers! I think I used 75% of them on this layout- excuses to buy more right?
For this layout, I tried to have a look of embellishments that went diagonal along the page so neither side was too heavy. Cluster in the upper right and end toward the lower left. The sweet baby boy’s photo is the center piece in the middle.
I hope you enjoyed this page, and I can’t wait to show you more of what you can do with Paper House’s new collections!! If you want to hear more about this layout as well as more work I do, check out my blog!
