Craft Set Welcome Sign

Hello! Samantha with you again. Today I’m showing you one of my favorite ways to use Paper House’s Craft Sets. Read on to find out what that is and how I made this welcome sign.

 

Paper House Supplies: Baby Boy Craft Set, Southwest Clear Stickers

Additional Supplies: Paint, Apple barrel lid

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.

I finished up my welcome sign with a few accent stickers from the Southwest Clear Sticker set.

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

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.

I placed the paper in the machine, pulled the tape out and the paper was now between the adhesive and the peel off cover. Then I peeled off the cover, removed my new sticker and attached it to my layout.  Supplies Used: One Big Happy Family Collection,  Xyron Tape RunnerXyron 1.5″ Sticker Maker

Hello Baby Boy and Girl Cards

photo-of-carolyn

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.

Scrapbook-001

Hello Baby Boy and Girl Cards Supply List

Kohlt Card 1

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.

Kohlt Card 2

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.

Liv Card 1

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.

Liv Card 2

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!

I Love You Baby Layout & Video Tutorial

my-bio-pic

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 Love You Baby Layout Supply List:

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.

FullSizeRender-109

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.

FullSizeRender-110

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.

FullSizeRender-111

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

Hello Baby Boy Flipbook Mini Album

photo-of-carolyn

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 Baby Boy Flipbook Supply List

I began by layering papers and stickers on the inside of the front cover. I didn’t let one inch of space go to waste!

flipbook-2

Here is one of my favorite pages. Who can resist a sweet little burrito and puffy stickers?

flipbook-3

I love the look of this fussy cut banner with the giraffe.

flipbook-4

I played around with the manufacturer’s strips in the paper kit to make flags and embellishments. The page on the right is a CD pocket.

flipbook-5

Here is one last spread with a quote and a kiss sticker.

There are a few more pages to check out in the attached video. The video gives a much better idea of how the Flipbook works and hopefully you will see just how fun it is!

Happy flipping!

Baby Boy Scrapbook Layout.

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.

babyelipphFor 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!!

Baby Boy Layout Supply LIst:

peek1

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.

peek2

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!
