Scrapbook Layouts

We’ve all seen the Back to School layouts perfectly themed and jam packed with primary colors.  Today, we don’t have those.  Today, our designers thought out of the box and captured those memories with some of our colorful (but not school themed) collections!

PHP-Aug. School-LO-Yvette

By adding the perfect cut file, Yvette was able to take patterned paper from Color Washed and turn it into a Back to School layout.  Combining it with encouraging stickers made it even more perfect!

Always Believe in Yourself - Majken Pullin for PHP

Majken also turned to her cut files and created a beautiful and encouraging layout.  The colors from Color Washed are a perfect match to the background!

 

Wood Plank Home Decor With Field Study

sara-circle-2 Hello Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful day! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit the blog! My dear mother recently spent an extended period in the hospital. I decided to create a home decor/art piece that included a photo of all her grandchildren to brighten up her room and then she can hang it in her home in a few weeks when she is discharged.  This Wood Plank Home Decor incorporates the beautiful Field Study paper pad to decorate it.Wood Plank Home Decor using Field Study from Paper House Productions

Products Used- Field Study 12″ Paper Pad

I fussy cut as many butterflies as I could to include on the wood plank. I adhered everything with a mixture of wet glue or glue dots and I added dimension by putting some craft foam behind the butterflies.

IMG_1952 I chose patterns and cut apart pieces from the paper pad that showcased the GORGEOUS copper foil in this pad…absolutely stunning!

I hope you enjoyed this project today…and, yes, my mama loved it a bunch!

Have A Lovely Day!

Key West Summer Memories Scrapbook Layout

KattyCircle2Hello friends! Katty here to share one of my favorite Summer memories with you all. The photo I am scrapping today was taken in Key West, Key West is about 3 hours South of us, we drove down on a Sunday and spent the day, we ended our visit with a Sunset Boat Tour. It was very relaxing and romantic. I wanted papers that would really help capture that evening, the Color Washed paper pad was just perfect for a Key West Scrapbook Layout.

Key West Scrapbook Layout using Paper House Productions

I chose this amazing patterned paper with the gold foiled triangles. It is stunning and was perfect for this layout. I began by layering some of the cut aparts from the Color Washed Paper Pad along with some of the Blue Waves Stick on Pockets behing my photo. I used a little bit of foam to raise some of the layers.

I used some of the stickers from the sticker sheet that comes included in the paper pad. I layered a few underneath the photo as well as in my tittle behind the word “adventures.” The tittle was created with a puffy sticker from the Outdoors puffy stickers as well as some alphas from the Beach Cardstock stickers. I scattered around a few other puffy stickers to finish it off.

I love how it turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty

Bubble Layout with Color Washed Paper

CarolynCircle2

 

Carolyn here today to show you the new Color Washed Paper Pad! The watercolor backgrounds are so beautiful and bright. I can see this becoming a go-to paper pad in my collection.

Supplies for Bubble Layout: Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad, Butterfly Project Pad, Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad.

beautifulbubbles3PH

I began with these bubble pictures and liked how the gold foil on the paper looks like bubbles. I found a cut file that looked “bubbly” and cut it from more gold color washed paper using my Silhouette Cameo. I backed the bubbles using cut apart cards from the paper pad.

I fussy cut the multicolored butterflies and the “wild and free” circle. The title, flags and arrows are all stickers that come with the paper pad. You can see a little bit of the purple Marbelous paper peeking out in this close-up.

I added a couple more butterflies from the Butterfly Project Pad to balance the page. I love how the Project Pad coordinated with the Paper Pad and the butterflies just pop right out. No need to use a cutting machine or fussy cut.

Thanks for looking at my layout today! Enjoy the last little bit of our summer bubble blowing weather.

Color Washed Scrapbook Layout

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made using the Color Washed paper collection along with the Summer Memories collection! I was so excited to receive the new Paper House Productions collections! The colors are so vibrant and gorgeous!

When I chose the photo for my layout, I just knew the background paper I picked was perfect, because as we all know, ‘Shrek’ takes place in ‘Far Far Away’ and the paper I chose just felt medieval to me! 🙂

Laying Out Happiness using the Marbelous Paper Pad

Shannon Circle2I have a wonderful family.

My cousins are my heart. We are lucky. We support each other and love each other. We get to spend time together and laugh a lot. Recently we celebrated dear Leo’s 3rd birthday and I loved this picture of us so much that I had to document it right away.

There was a box that came in the mail for me this week that turned my not so stellar day right around. This box contained the new releases from Paper House Productions. I’m not going to pretend that I wasn’t overwhelmed with all of the beauteous things that came in that box. I didn’t know where to begin. You are going to love all of the inspiration that the team will be sharing with you!

Friendship Cards with My Sentiments Exactly Stamps

CarolynCircle2

Hello paper fans! Carolyn back today with two friendship cards showcasing the beautiful Be Happy Paper Pad and My Sentiments Exactly Stamps. They were so easy to put together and now I have some cards ready to make the day of some special friends.

Friendshipcards2PH

Supplies for Friendship Cards: Paper House Productions Be Happy Paper Pad, CS Y220 Friendship Cards Clear Stamps by My Sentiments Exactly.

 

FriendshipcardsgoodFor this card, I folded a piece of 8.5′ x 11′ white cardstock. I cut the flowers from black cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. The ovals in the large flower are the negative cuts from the small flowers! I used two different ribbons from my stash and used the flower stickers that come with the paper pad. The sentiment is stamped using white ink. There were enough sentiments in the stamp set to personalize the inside of the card.

 

friendshipcardsgood2This card is the same as the other card but this time I used fussy cutting for the flowers. I love how fancy the stamp sentiment looks on this card! I could never have written something so pretty.

I hope you will take a moment to click on the supply lists above. My Sentiments Exactly has so many stamps to choose from you can’t go wrong. The stamps stuck really well to my clear block and were very easy to clean with water. But most importantly, the stamped images were clear every time.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to say hello to a special friend today!

For my first card I used the sweet and fun papers from the Hello Baby Girl Paper Crafting Kit. I just love all the prints in this kit. So pretty! I used the prints for the main focus of the card. I then had fun adding layers of circles in various colors.

Here is a closer look at the stamped sentiment. I love the mix of fonts. Both playful and elegant. This sentiment is perfect for some many types of birthday wishes!

Take a closer look at the adorable puffy hot air balloon sticker! I just LOVE these stickers. I can’t resist touching them.

Now for my second card. The white cardstock base is 5.5 x 5.5. I then turned to my Sliced Love Paper Pad and cut out the patterned paper mats. I then used the coloring frame included in the stamp set to stamp out the beautiful floral frame and sentiment in a coordinating ink. I have to say I thought these stamps stamped beautifully. The quality of their images is fantastic!

I then colored it in with my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Brush Pen. I couldn’t capture the sparkle on camera but it is there! It adds such a soft and elegant shimmer.

Look at the pretty banner sticker that is also included in the paper pad!
