Project Pad Cards

Hello! Samantha here with you. Paper House’s Project Pads are super versatile and easy to work with.  I’m sharing two project pad cards with you today to showcase how pretty these pads are. At the end of this post there is also a link to a bonus home decor project using a project pad.

Supplies: Hearts ProjectColor Washed Paper Pad, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers, Family Planner Stickers

There are multiple sizes of hearts in the Heart Project pad. To create a simple focal point for a card, just layer up a few different sizes and colors of heart. Using dimensional adhesive helps take the card from “ok” to “wow” and gives it a more finished look. You can also mail cards using dimensional adhesive without having to pay any extra postage! Finish your card by adding sentiment stickers. I used some planner stickers on this card to make it a birthday card.

If you like using patterned paper, you can start your card with a pretty piece of patterned paper. Then choose some hearts from the project pad that coordinate with your patterned paper. Too keep everything from getting too busy, I used hearts that were very similar on this card. Group them together in the center of the card for a fun focal point. Add a clear sticker at the bottom for a seamless sentiment.

Hearts and Feathers Project Pad Cards

CarolynCircle2It’s Carolyn back today to show you 6 different cards using the hearts and feathers project pads. The project pads have heart and feather shapes that are easy to punch out. They are so easy to use and match so well with the Color Washed Paper Pad and the Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers. Making these cards was a piece of cake!

Supplies for Project Pad Cards: Hearts Project Pad, Feathers Project Pad, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers, Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad, Teacher Puffy Sticker.

I covered this card with gesso so the paint would not ruin the cardstock. I then dripped watercolors down the cardstock. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet.

For this card, I layered some punched hearts. I used a black Tombow marker to outline the hearts and add some fake stitching. The sentiment is stamped with black ink with a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

This anniversary card is all hearts! I love how hearts can make flowers. I used alpha stickers from the Color Washed Paper Pad.

For my final heart card, I used the Color Washed Paper Pad for the background and border stickers. The sentiment is from the Bohemian Friends sticker sheet and the twine is from my stash.

I combined the Feather Project Pad with the Teacher Puffy Stickers. How awesome are these patterns and colors?!

My last card is a combination of feathers and Bohemian Friends stickers. I love the layers that the feathers can make.

That’s all for today. I hope you’ve been inspired to use some hearts and feathers on your projects!

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!

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!

PHP NEW RELEASE AUGUST 1, Shannon M.

Supplies Used:  Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Hearts Project Pad, Feathers Project Pad

I really wanted you to see the close ups of the gold accents in the “Marbelous” collection..the beautiful textures and accents are well marbelous!

PHP NEW RELEASE AUGUST CLOSE UP, SHANNON M.

There are so many beautiful tones in this color palette, you’ll be able to use it for so many projects, cards and layouts.

Sometimes Sympathy…

Shannon Circle2Let’s be honest for a second, there’s a subject that memory keepers and moment documenters kind of dance around, or have a hard time sharing, and that is death. It’s a memory no one cherishes or likes to address. It’s necessary though, because it’s part of life. The point is, simple kindnesses like I’m sorry/thinking of you/sending prayers and sympathy cards can mean all the difference in a grieving person or persons day.  Shannon joining you today to share a sympathy card created combining Paper House Products and a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

PHP:MSE Blog Post, Shannon M.

I’m glad that companies like MSE (My Sentiments Exactly) make stamps for this purpose. MSE has clear stamps and the more traditional wood stamps, there truly is something for everyone! They created a really beautiful sentiment stamp that I used along with some Paper House Productions products to create a sympathy card.

Paper House Productions products used: Bohemian-Friends Clear Stickers, Our Wedding Clear Stickers, Feathers 12″ Acetate Paper, Southwest Adventure Paper Crafting Kit , Hearts Project Pad, Butterflies Project Pad, Feathers Project Pad, Frames Project Pad & Nautical Flip Album

PHP_MSE Deepest Sympathy, Shannon M.

The picture doesn’t really touch upon on all the gold, and while gold may not be a traditional mourning color, it is a celebration of someone’s life and hope for those left here to grieve. I see nothing wrong with sending “love and light” someone’s way. Smiles are what actually make the world go ’round. Here’s a better shot of all the details.

Have a great week, thanks for letting me share with you!  ❤

Butterfly Scrapbook Layout

KattyCircle2Hello friends! Katty here to share another fun scrapbook layout using the awesome Paper House Productions products. Today I am working with the Butterflies Project Pad. These pads are so amazing. I chose to use the butterfly one. This Project Pad has pages and pages of butterflies in all of the colors. They also have a watercolor look to them, which I absolutely love. They’re already perforated so all you have to do is punch them out and add them to any project. These would be amazing for home decor too.

Supplies: Butterflies Project Pad, Discover USA Papercrafting Kit

I started with a white piece of cardstock. I decided to go with the watercolor look of the butterflies and add my own watercolor look behind the butterflies. I chose several colors of butterflies and several sizes. I created a rainbow going vertically down the left hand side of the page. I used some spray mists and the packaging technique to add the color. Then I placed the beautiful butterflies on top.

FullSizeRender 26 copy

I used three photos of my adorable niece. I layered them on top of each other going across the right side of the page.

FullSizeRender 24 copy

I used several coordinating colored patterned papers from the Discover USA Papercrafting Kit to back the photos. I used some thickers from my stash for my tittle and I added some ink splatters and white doodles on the butterfliesto finish it off. I love how it turned out.

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!
