****************************************************************

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! One of my favorite things to buy at arts and crafts shows is handmade signs! This is because I love how an artist might hand write a quote or draw an adorable illustration. I have tried making my own handmade signs but since I’m not a great drawer and I don’t necessarily care for my handwriting, they have always turned out a little odd. So, how do we solve this problem? Well, we get out our favorite adhesive tools and stickers!

Today, I am going to show you how to create a Sparkle Wooden Sign using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! If you are unfamiliar with Scrapbook Adhesives they are a company that designs adhesives for the crafting industry. Some of the products they are best known for are their tape runners, mounting squares, 3D form products and adhesive dots. In today’s project, I will be using their tape runner and adhesive dots.

This Sparkle Wooden Sign is designed to be super easy to put together. For instances, to create this sign, I used a pack of Paper House’s enamel stickers. These stickers were my main focal point and I literally apply them in the same pattern that they were in on the sticker sheet. By doing this method, I didn’t waste time on figuring out a design and I was able to create a cute sign in under 30 minutes!

Sparkle Wooden Sign with Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L

To create your own Sparkle Wooden Sign, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Cut out a piece of scrapbook paper that will fit your wooden sign. Then, using the Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner, glue your paper onto your wooden sign.

For my wooden sign, I used a piece a scrapbook paper from Paper House’s Color Washed 12’’ Paper Pad.

Note: I did paint my wooden sign before I began this step. However, painting your wooden sign is totally optional.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab your sticker sheet and begin adding each sticker to your wooden sign. While doing this step, you can either place your stickers (on your wooden sign) just like how they are on the sticker sheet or you can make up a whole new design.

For my wooden sign, I used Paper House’s Lucky Cat Faux Enamel Stickers.

Step 3

Step 3: To add some sparkle to my wooden sign and to tie in the gold enameling (that is around the stickers), I decided to add gold glitter using Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots (0.2 in or 5mm size).

To do this, all I did was add 7 dots in random places on my wooden sign. Then, I sprinkled some chunky gold glitter on top of the adhesive dots and tapped off the excess.

Once you are happy with how your wooden sign looks, simply add some wire or a piece of ribbon to hang your sign, and you are done!

I love how this Sparkle Wooden Sign turned out! I think a small sign like this would look so cute as part of a gallery wall, on a cork board, or even hanging in an office.

If you make your own wooden sign, I highly recommend that you use Scrapbook Adhesives products. This is because there is practically no drying time and you can easily add embellishments (like glitter) without needing to wait for everything to dry.

Christmas Decor DIY with Paper Pads

Shannon Circle2Have you ever heard the phrase, sometimes less is more? Today, I am showing you an easy way to add a lot of impact with just a few (7 to be exact) feathers from the incredibly versatile Project Pads offered at Paper House…these Project Pads can be used for a multitude of projects.

I used the Feathers Project Pad for the altered frame you see below.  Yes, that’s it. That’s all I needed to create the effect needed, which was golden, feathery, white and gentle.

I bought a bare frame and painted it as shown.

Next, I actually covered the glass pane that came with the frame with chalkboard paint. I then got to work hand lettering the fitting lyrics, and then went over them with white glitter glue so there was a bit of magic. Adding two tacks (eyeball this) in each corner, created the perfect placement for the feathers. I  used a hole punch to punch holes in each feather, going for different lengths  and sizes.  Green twine was the perfect touch as the feathers were strung “on the line”.   After the twine was pulled taught and  wrapped around the tacks, I added a bow and bell for each corner.   A little  glitter added here and there, and  we can call the project  finished !  Thanks for letting me share with  you!

PHP FEATHERS Project, 11-2017, Shannon M.

I wanted  you to see a close up of those gold foil feathers because they are really, really perfect for the holidays as a perfect punch of holiday shine.  Just take a look!!

 I hope I could inspire you to create something for others or yourself in preparation of the upcoming holidays! Have a great day!

It was very easy and the results are fantastic.

Easy Home Decor With DIY Project Pads

sara-circle-2

Hello Hello! I have a photo tutorial for you today showing how to create an easy home decor piece..so easy, in fact, that my 11-year-old son did most of the creating! Here is the finished piece..

 

IMG_3837

Supplies Used-  Feathers Project Pad

Step 1 and  2 – Paint a canvas (any size you like) with a thick, messy coat of heavy white acrylic paint…you want some texture…the more the better! After drying, apply random feathers from the project pad to the canvas, using a removable adhesive (oh, and choose designs you are less likely to want/need for another project)

Steps 3 and 4 – Spray your creation with a heavy coat of gold spray ink so it settles in all the cracks and crannies…leave to dry for at least 24 hours or until completely dry. Remove the feathers to reveal a negative image. Build your home decor piece from there, using more feathers, craft fun foam, and any other little notions you would like. thread, buttons, twine…anything to add interest and texture.

Finish by applying an appropriate quote, saying, or words of your choice. I chose to cut my scripture from black cardstock with my Silhouette but the options for this are endless!

Another great use for his project pad are clean and simple cards…Paired with some stamps, mist, ink, or sewing notions from your craft room can create a striking card in a snap…these two took me 10 min. including drying time!

I combined Tombow markers and Paper House Wicked Spooky collection to create a spooktacular haunted house. Paper House papers lay the foundation for the house, while tracing the edges of the house, windows, and doors with different colored Tombow Twintone markers creates a finishing touch – instead of unfinished chipboard sticking out, all you see is bright Tombow color that coordinates perfectly with the colors in Wicked Spooky. Check out more details (like how I covered the rooftops with Paper House Halloween Washi Tape) on my blog.

Harvest Blessings Fall Home Decor Fence

Melinda Circle2

Hello crafty friends!  Melinda here with you today and I am super excited about my project. We were tasked with making something “off the page” and so I decided to make a Fall Home Decor Fence.

Fall Home Decor Fence

Supplies Used: The Great Outdoors Paper Crafting Kit, Autumn Air Scrapbook Paper, Autumn Woods Cardstock Stickers

I started by creating my cut file. I didn’t have anymore chipboard so I used several sheets of brown cardstock. Once I glued all the layers together, I cut out the pieces from my brown wood paper that came in the Great Outdoors paper crafting kit. I liked that this particular piece of patterned paper had a wood grain with no “planks look” I could cut the fence pieces out with out worrying about having any odd lines.

Next I assembled my fence posts and lined them up. I then adhered the horizontal planks to make the fence pieces hold together.  I added some brads to give the appearance of nails.

I then designed and cut four layers of the harvest blessing. I glued and stacked the four cuts to add some strength and a bit of dimension to the words.

Next I fussy cut the pretty pumpkins from a piece of the Autumn Air paper. The weight of this paper is great. Not too flimsy at all. I added some foam tape to the back and they made the perfect border for my fence.

I then turned to my cardstock sticker set and added the sweet little animals. And the little pumpkin sticker at the bottom.

This view shows how the layers of cardstock gave the pieces a nice thick look and a very sturdy feel.

I then created this fun little sign to hang with another sticker and added it to a piece of the same Autumn Air paper. It has a wood grain look too. I used some hemp to hang it and some more brads.

For the back I simply cut strips of cardstock at 2.25 x 12. I scored each strip at 1″, 6″ and 11″. I folded each strip in half and glued it together. I folded the 1″ pieces so that they would act as a hinge and glued it to my project. I glue about four of the strips together to make each leg nice and sturdy. I used a hole punch to punch a hole and then knotted some hemp and then glue it to the other side through the holes so that it would act as the bottom part of the base. This way when it’s time to put it away, I can lay it flat for storage.

Here’s one last look at my completed project.

If you would like to create your own project be sure to head over to the store and purchase your stickers and paper.  I am sharing the cut file pattern with you here for a limited time. If you have a craft cutting machine that uses: AI, DXF, SVG, STUDIO or WPC files, then you can use this file.

Well, that about covers it for today. Be sure to stop back by and see what the rest of the designers are creating. Also, please stop by my blog and see what else I am up to!  Until the next time, Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Project Pad Calendar

CarolynCircle2

Hello! Carolyn back today and I am super excited to show you the calendar I made with the Punch Out Project Pads. My daughter has become quite interested in dance this year and is always making little calendars to keep track of her practice. When I saw this white board I knew she would love it and I would have fun decorating it!

Project Pad Calendar Supply List: Frames Project Pad, Hearts Project Pad, and Butterflies Project Pad.

I began by choosing the colors I wanted and then punching out a whole bunch of butterflies and hearts. I played with them until I figured out a layering pattern that I liked and glued a bunch together. I adhered them to magnetic strips so that my daughter can move them anywhere she would like on the board.

I went through the frame pad and punched out all the cards with words on them that I felt fit my theme of dance and practice. I punched out corresponding frames (which have the folds already scored) and glued everything together. I also put magnetic strips on the back of the frames.

These box frames I stuffed with tissue so they would be sturdier when pulled off the board. I had lots of fun layering hearts to make flowers and decorate the boxes.

The project pads make a craft like this so easy! They are packed with a variety of shapes and colors that all coordinate. This would be an easy craft with kids and my daughter is excited to make more accessories for her board with me.

Tween Girl Room Decor with Butterfly Project Pad

Christine Circle 2

Hi there Paper House Fans!  Christine joining you today with a budget friendly decor idea for a tween girls room!  We moved  into a new house and I have been slowly adding to the decor of my kids rooms.  Join me as I show you an easy tween girl project!

Tween Girl Room Decor by Christine Meyer using Butterflies Paper Pad

My daughter just turned 10 and she’s somewhere between wanting little girl decor and grown up decor.  Paper House Butterfly Project Pad to the rescue!  I pulled out this little budget friendly pad and started popping out the butterflies.

Tween Girl Room Decor by Christine Meyer using Butterflies Paper Pad

The frames surrounding the butterflies were just some plain wood ones that I picked up at a big box store and spray painted black.  I then hung them at angles and started filling them with butterflies.  I attached the butterflies with just a little dab of the gummy tack stuff on the market.

TweenGirlsCU1

The butterflies come in all kinds of patterns, sizes, colors, and even gold foiling.  I used about 6 sheets total and barely made a dent in the pad.  That means I have plenty left over to make other fun projects!  Sometimes with projects like this, it’s easier to check it out in a video – so I made quick little one for you!

Now quick – run and grab that fabulous Butterflies Project Pad!

Home Decor With Project Pads

Sara Circle 2

Hello Hello! I hope you are all surviving your Monday! To help ward off the blahs, I have a home decor piece to share with you I created using t Project Pads and Clear Cuts Stickers!

IMG_0076

Supplies Used– Hearts Project PadButterflies Project Pad , Bohemian- Friends Clear Stickers

IMG_0065

With so many colors in the project pads, it made it very easy to find colors to coordinate with my decor. My dining room is designed around one of Monet’s Water Lilies painting and, yep, its painted purple….which makes this frame a wonderful addition to the room, and I have the perfect spot to hang it! I also loved adding the clear stickers for tails for some of my butterflies, gold accents, and some pops of teal (also in my dining room!)

Thank you so much for joining me today! And be sure to get one (or two) of these project pads…I promise you will find lots of uses for them!

Have A Lovely Day!

I wanted to include some little candy bars in each little gift I made, but I didn’t have any bags, so I made some using some of the papers in the collection!  I cut papers in 4×4 inch squares and then sewed them together to make my ‘bags’!

17I then made some tags for the front of the ‘bags’ to wish each woman on my team a Happy Mother’s Day! After adding the candy bars to the bags, I tied a tag to the front of each bag! I hope my co-workers like them!
