Hello! Samantha here today with a set of sports themed basketball cards. This group of 4 cards is a great way to have some sports themed cards in your stash for when you need them, or (if you’re like me) catch up on a few belated thank yous.
I needed some thank you cards for my sons’ basketball coaches, but these cards could easily be made into birthday or just because cards by swapping out the sentiment.
The All Star Paper Pad is my go to for all of my sports needs; scrapping sports, sports themed cards, and sport themed party decorations. I stuck to a basketball theme for these cards, but you’ll also find baseball, soccer, and football in the paper pad.
Paper House has such a large offering of stickers and embellishments that it’s easy to grab the paper pad (which also includes a card stock sticker sheet) and a few matching embellishments to create a fabulous card.
For these cards, I went for some 3d stickers, a bit of washi tape, and some planner stickers as embellishments. The best part is that the planner stickers are in the new Great Deals section on the website. If you haven’t checked out the Great Deals section, make sure to head over there. It’s full of discounts, sales, grab boxes, specials, and more. On top of that, you can use any of the creative team member’s codes (you can find mine at the end of this post) at checkout and get an additional 20% off an already awesome deal.
This set of basketball thank you cards is all set and ready for the mail!
Hello! Samantha here today. One of my favorite holidays is coming up: St. Patrick’s Day. We have Irish ancestors and are very proud of it. I always send my Irish grandparents a card to celebrate, so today I have my St. Patrick’s Day card and matching envelope to share with you.
I wanted to show a few things when making this St. Patrick’s Day card. First, I wanted to show that you don’t need a St. Paddy’s themed paper collection to create a card for the holiday. I knew Marbelous had a fantastic green as part of the collection, plus I love the white and gold paper that’s part of that collection. I forgot about the orange paper that’s also perfect for a St. Paddy’s card.
I also used a piece of the green Marbelous paper to create a matching envelop, because every card looks even better with a matching envelope.
The second thing I wanted to share is how easy it is to make a shamrock with a heart punch or die. Four quick punches with a heart punch and you’ve got the 4 leaves of your 4 leaf clover. I used some foam adhesive to pop them up in the middle of the card.
The last thing I wanted to share was a reminder that Paper House planner stickers aren’t just for planners. They make great embellishments for layouts and cards!
Paper House has a planner sticker for just about every holiday or occasion, so the possibilities are endless. Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
Hello Everyone! How many times does someone (either a friend or co-worker) do something for you or help you out in some way? Do you ever wish that you could give them something special as a mini thank you? Well, I recently had this happen to me and I wanted to thank my friend for my making an awesome recommendation. So, today, I am going to show you how easy it is to turn some plain candy boxes into an extra special thank you gift!
I got the idea to do this project when I wanted to thank a friend for recommending an accountant for my business. I had been trying to find a good accountant for a while and my friend ended up recommended a great accountant for my small business. As a thank you, I wanted to get her some of her favorite candy. However, instead of just giving her the boxes of candy, I wanted to make them extra special!
To do this, I decided to use the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and combine some of the regular scrapbooking paper along with one of the scrapbook quotes This project was super easy to put together and probably took me less than 20 minutes. Also, adding the scrapbooking paper really made the regular candy boxes look a bit more ”fancy”!
To create your own Decorative Candy Boxes, you would do the following:
Step 1: Measure the front of your candy box and cut out a piece of scrapbooking paper that fits those measurements. Then cut out one of the quotes that can be found in the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad.
For my candy box, I used the ”Enjoy Every Moment” quote and a sheet of the green/gold marble paper.
Step 2: Attach your main paper piece to the front of your candy box (I used Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots by 3L). Then punch two holes on either side of your scrapbook quote.
Step 3: Run some embroidery thread through your scrapbook quote and tie it around your candy box.
Once you have tied off your embroidery thread, simply fill out a thank you card, and you are ready to give your gift!
I loved how this project turned out and I think its such an easy way to make a simple gift a bit more special!
Before I go, I did want to mention one tip about the candy boxes.
You may have noticed, that there were two candy boxes stacked together in this project. If you decide to give away more than 1 box of candy, my tip would be to add five Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots (one in each of the corners and one in the middle) on the top of the second candy box. Then add the first candy box on top of the second candy box. By doing this, your candy boxes will stay together and not slide around.
Hey, everyone, it’s Caitlyn! I have a question for all of you today – what is your favorite item by Paper House Productions when it comes to scrapbooking or planning? I had to think about the answer to this question for a long time, but then it hit me while I was working on a project.
My favorite item is the paper. The paper is so amazingly versatile and I have used it in almost every single project that I have done so far. From adding it to the wood piece for my quote board to creating planner stickers, it has done so much for me. The color washed paper pack has been my go-to paper pack for beautiful splashes of color. I love the paper.
At the end of the month I’ll be attending an art class with a designer. I knew I wanted to have something to swap with the other attendees when Artist’s Trading Cards came to mind. While I wasn’t sure exactly what direction I wanted to go with these at the start, I knew all I needed to do was grab my trusted Color Washed paper pack in order to get started.
The first thing I did was go through all of the pages and pull out my favorites. In addition to going through Color Washed paper pack, I pulled a few sheets from the Marbleous paper pad just in case. You never know what will cause inspiration to strike so I opted to choose as many different options as possible.
Once my sheets were picked, I moved into cutting them into 2″ x 3″ inch rectangles. The papers found in the paper packs are so different from each other with a ton of variety. Since there is so much variation just on one sheet of paper it made my job that much easier. I had a lot of options to choose from just one sheet – all I had to do was create the rest of my design!
To make this project even easier I picked one of my favorite stamp sets to use containing different women. I would take a pile of my cut rectangles, stamp one of the women on the page, and then stamped the word “artist” in a blank space.
Once the first part of the card was completed I opted to add a black piece of cardstock as a backer. This helped to make the card pop even more! To add additional variety, I rounded out the corners on a few cards.
It’s amazing how something as simple as paper can help to create an amazing project! I can’t wait to swap with everyone else at the class. These were just too enjoyable!

Hi everyone! As many of you already know, I love making home décor projects that don’t require a billion different supplies and that are easy to create. On my own blog, one home décor project that I tend to make over and over is clocks. I love making my own clocks because 1) they are easy to make and 2) they are a great way to show off your favorite craft supplies, Since Paper House Productions has recently come out with a bunch of cute new products, I thought it be fun to show you how easy it is to make your own clock!
Today, I am going to show you how to make your own Mini Canvas Clock! This clock was created using a couple of differnt Paper House products, but the star of the show is definitely Paper House’s Enamel Stickers. If you are not familiar with the Enamel Stickers, they are brand new to Paper House and are just so adorable! Each Enamel Sticker pack has a specific theme and contains about 10 to 13 stickers which are very vibrant in color. For today’s project, as you can probably guess, I chose to use the Llamas Faux Enamel Stickers!
To create your own Mini Canvas Clock featuring Enamel Stickers, you would do the following:
Step 1: Grab your 5-inch by 5-inch canvas and make a mark in the center of your canvas (this center would be at 2 ½ inches). Then take your awl and poke a hole where you made your mark in the center of your canvas. When poking the hole, you will want to make it big enough, so your main clock piece can go through.
Note- I decided to use an awl because we are essentially poking a hole through some thin canvas and cardboard. However, if you didn’t want to use an awl, you could also use a drill for this step instead.
Step 2: Grab some scrapbooking paper (from the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad) that will match your stickers and cut out a 5-inch by 5-inch piece. Then glue that piece to your canvas (using your favorite adhesive) and re-poke the hole in the middle. Finally, add some washi tape around the edges of the canvas, to give it a more finished look. The washi tape that I used in this project was the thin gold washi tape from the Wine Washi Tape Set.
Step 3: Now grab your enamel stickers (I’m using the Llamas Faux Enamel Stickers) and decide which four stickers you want to use. Then place your chosen four stickers where 12, 3, 6 and 9 would be on your canvas.
Once you are done decorating your canvas, add in your clock kit and you are now ready to display your new clock!
The nice thing about this project is that you can customize the whole thing from beginning to end. For example, besides changing the paper/stickers, you could also change the size of the canvas to create a bigger clock. Also, since most of the Enamel Sticker packs come with 12 stickers, you could easily use all 12 stickers (instead of 4) to create your clock.
Finally, when displaying your clock, think about including it as part of a gallery wall, displaying it in your office or simply displaying it on a bookshelf.
Hello lovely friends! Heather here with a 12×12 scrapbook layout featuring the Marbleous 12×12 Paper Pad. This awesome paper pad also has a 12×12 sticker sheet in the front of it and it is amazing!
I used a piece of the marbleous paper and matted the black card stock on it to make all of the colors pop off the page! I love all of the bright colors in this layout, it makes me smile. I also love the addition of the Kawaii Flake Stickers. They are such cute little elements to make your layout or any project special! My favorite element on my layout is the Kawaii Stick On Pocket, I love how I can add extra journaling and tuck it into the pocket.
Head over to my YouTube channel to check out my whole process on how I created this fun and colorful layout! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Hello everyone! It’s Laura here with you today, sharing a scrapbook page created with the Paper House Destinations Travel stickers. These are great if you love to travel….about anywhere you go, they have you covered!
We travel to the beach in North Carolina every year, and of course I take a lot of pics to scrap! These Paper House Destinations stickers have a great selection of different stickers whether it’s a road trip, a beach trip, or if you are just playing tourist and seeing some of the sights.
I did start this LO off with the Marbleous….one of the beyond gorgeous 12×12 paper pads Paper House has to offer. It includes border strips….you can see where I layered some of those along the top and bottom edges of my page. It also has a lot of gorgeous foiled papers, like the hexagon paper I used. I cut it into 2 pieces, and fussy cut around one edge to give it the page a fun background. Here is a picture before I added in the other layers and photos:
These marbled papers are truly stunning! They make such a great backdrop for pictures, and there are so many different color palettes to choose from in this one 12×12 pad.
In this close up, you can see the foil, and better yet, you can see the amazing details in the Destination stickers!
Don’t you love the little license plate and the road sign? Adorable!! Do you take the pictures of the state welcome signs like I do? Even if you don’t you can use these stickers! They really layer up great too!
These Destinations sets also have a perfect little state outline sticker too. It’s such a fun detail as you can see here:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure to stop by the Paper House store and check out their huge selection of all the different Destination stickers! You’ll be ready for scrapping that next vacation or road trip!
Hi everyone! My name is Katie King and I am one of the newest members of the Paper House Productions Design Team! To explain a little bit more about myself, I am a DIY blogger, who believes that crafting should be simple, fun and unique. The name of my blog is Running with a Glue Gun and the types of crafts/DIYs that I tend to make on my blog are home décor.
Since this is my first project for Paper House Productions, I thought it would be fun to show you how to decorate a shadow box house in only 3 steps! In this project, I am using the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and Life Organized Embrace Today Puffy Stickers. This may seem like an odd combination, but the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad contains 48 sheets of gorgeous marbled paper and the Embrace Today Puffy Stickers are the perfect size for the individual sections of a shadow box.
To create your own shadow box house, you would do the following:
Step 1: Paint your wooden shadow box white and set it aside to dry.
Step 2: Measure the inside sections of your shadow box. Then grab your Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and cut pieces of scrapbooking paper that fit those measurements. For my shadow box, I used 2 different pieces of scrapbooking paper from the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad. The first piece of scrapbooking paper had four different marble patterns on it and the second piece had a collage of different phrases.
Once you have cut your pieces of paper out, begin decorating each piece using your Embrace Today Puffy Stickers. Now, these stickers were originally designed for planners, but they are the perfect size for the inside of a shadow box. Also, since they were originally designed for planners, the arrows and little phrases help to make your items (in the shadow box) stand out even more.
Step 3: When all your paper pieces have been decorated, use your favorite adhesive to glue each paper piece into each section of the shadow box.
After all of the paper pieces have dried, you are now ready to fill up your shadow box and display it!
By painting the house white and using the brighter colors of the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad, it really helps to make your items in the shadow box stand out. Also, the Embrace Today Puffy Stickers help to ”frame” your items and add a bit more detail to each section. For example, I like the look of the ”love” sticker above my miniature dog figurine.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and for taking the time to read my very first project post for Paper House Productions! I’m so happy to be on the design team and I can’t wait to make more projects for you guys.
