Color Washed LOVE

Hi everybody. I’m just taking a moment to share this layout I created using some papers and stickers from the Color Washed paper Pad and stickers. If you love this collection, you’ll be happy to know that Paper House has a travel notebook in this style! Check it out here. I love how vibrant the colors are in this collection. It’s the perfect collection for scrapbooking those New Years Eve photos or in my case photo. I love this selfie I took of my husband and I celebrating.

I got a little creative with this layout. Even though it’s a photo taken on New Year’s Eve, I decided to create a “love” themed layout. Why not… what a great photo!

I used lots of stickers on this layout. The butterfly was punched from a scrap piece of paper that had different splashes of paint… It was so pretty that I thought it would be perfect for punching a butterfly die cut out of the scrap to use on my layout. I decorated the center of the butterfly using a button and some embroidery thread.

I cut a banner sticker in half and adhered it at the top of the layout. Then I stamped the “fantastic” sentiment inside the word banner.

The Sunflowers were hand-made using a similar technique used to create the butterfly, but instead of using a punch, I used a stamp then I fussy cut the image out of the paper.

The “love” sticker was actually white. I used a light blue marker from Altenew to change the color. 🙂 Lots of clever ideas on this layout to stretch out my supplies!

 

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Great Outdoors Scrapbook Layout

We’re kicking off a week long feature of The Great Outdoors Collection.  Today we are joined by Nicole with an 8 1/2 X 11 Layout!

Here’s Nicole

A few weeks ago, I snapped these photos of Edward canoeing in the Severn. His friends were nice enough to let him borrow their canoe and Edward had a blast. He watched them do it and then he was off, exploring on his own and he learned how to stop and turn all by himself. He’s one smart cookie.

For this layout, I used Paper House’s The Great Outdoors collection. The papers, stickers and dimensional stickers went perfectly with the photos! I love when that happens!

I added the “Great Outdoors” dimensional sticker at the top of the photo to help frame the photo. Then I used a few foam squares on the canoe sticker and mounted it onto the sticker. And just for fun, I tucked the tent sticker, slightly behind the title.

I used the frame sticker to frame the photo then added the word banner using foam squares. I used the tree as well to make the frame pop. For the bottom, I tore a piece of brown polka dot paper and tucked it beneath the photos then a used a piece of graph paper to journal my story and tucked it below the other photo.

I cut the banner journaling block in half then tucked it behind the photo on both sides for a fun design.

Thanks for visiting today!

 

Beach Themed Scrapbook Layouts

If you’ve been to the beach this summer and have scrapbooking to get cranking on, then today, we have you covered!  Our designers have been hard at work creating gorgeous Beach Themed Scrapbook Layouts using several of our beach collections and paper pads.

First Up is our Paradise Found Collection

A sunny day, turquoise water, a sandy beach, this must be paradise. If it was ever lost, we surely have found it, and are happy to celebrate it in this paper crafting kit. Drizzly days not included. Just sunshine and relaxation.

Take me to the beach-DT-PHP

Yvette combined the Paradise Found Collection with 3D Stickers, Washi Tape, and Stickers from our Sundrenched Collection to make this Multi-photo layout!

ParadiseFoundPH

Carolyn combined fussy cutting with a scenic background paper to make her sandcastle pictures pop right off the page!

Now let’s check out the Sun Drenched Collection

It’s amazing how certain colors can call to mind a host of memories. Take this Paper Pad, for example. We can almost feel the boardwalk beneath our sandals, hear the lapping of the waves on the shore, smell the fresh, salty sea breeze, all because of the vivid pinks and yellows and blues in this Sun Drenched paper pad.

Nicole showcases all the layers you can make with this Paper Pad!  Sun Drenched is available in both a Paper Pad and in individual sheets and stickers.

Photo Jul 23, 3 55 32 PM

Both Nicole and Sara are showcasing layouts that are 8 1/2 X 11 in size.  It’s a smaller format that they have both found they like better.  Sara used a tearing technique to mimic the look of waves on her layout.

Majken Pullin for PHP - Family Beach Day PHP

Majken is kicking off her term with this colorful and detailed 12 X 12 layout.  Take a close look at all the added details she gave to this including the beach scene along the bottom and machine stitching on her sunshine.

Finally we’re featuring the Sliced Beach Paper Pad

There are so many things to love about the beach, and they’re all featured in this Paper Pad. The bright colors evoke a sunny day lounging in the sand, with the sound of the surf and the cry of the gulls for background ambience. Go ahead. Get your feet wet.

Memories made at the beach-DT-PHP

Yvette created this layout and as you can see it features some rich colors.
