Oh So Happy Supply List: Be Happy Paper Pad, PenBlades

I primarily used my PenBlade Knife to cut petals on flowers so that I could pop and curl them up.

I’ve got a quick process video to share that goes along with this layout and shows how I got from the beginning to the end.


Thanks for joining me today – be sure to check back in the rest of the week for continued previews of new products and more PenBlade projects too!

 

The World is Wide Home Decor

Hello! Samantha with you to share a piece of wall art I created with Paper House’s Travel Craft Set and a PenBlade. We love to travel, so this The World is Wide home decor piece is perfect for my living room wall.

 

Supplies: Travel Craft Set, #15 PenBlade

I started my project by printing out my saying on regular computer paper. Then I used a bit of temporary adhesive to help hold my printed words to my sticker sheet. The sticker sheet I picked is one of 3 different printed full sheet stickers that come in the Travel Craft Set. I used my PenBlade to cut out my words. I used the #15 PenBlade because it is super sharp and very thin, which makes it perfect for precision cuts.

I used a bit of transfer tape (like you’d use on decorative vinyl) to transfer my letters to a piece of wood that I stained. You don’t need to uses transfer tape for this step, it just made it a bit faster and easier for me to line ever thing up.

I used some of the 3-d and enamel stickers that come in the Travel Craft Set to decorate my piece. It’s so nice that all the coordinating bits come in one box! Adding dimensional stickers to a flat piece of home decor really helps it pop.

All completed, this The World is Wide home decor piece is a fun way to add a personal touch to your walls. Do you like to travel far and wide? Save

I designed my template and cut it out of Kraft Cardstock. Once that was cut out, I used my pencil to draw on the opposite side of the paper the pattern.

I then used my pen blade to cut out the layer. The pen blade worked like  a charm. I used a self-healing mat underneath and it glided right along with no trouble.

I then used my Xyron Adhesive to adhere the paper to the back side of the template.

Here is a closer view of the template I cut out of Kraft Cardstock. You can see the various layers of the patterned paper I used to follow along the bottom side of the template.

I used several of the cardstock stickers from the collection to adorn this banner.

This terrific cardstock sticker of the USA was also part of the collection. I used some of the alphabet stickers to write my nephew and nieces names.

FREE Scrapbook Layout Template

Here is the FREE template I created that I am sharing with everyone. It is sized at approximately 8.25 x 8.25 so it can be printed on a regular printer and then used with the pen blades. I am sharing the PDF and JPG files!
