Documenting Your Big Fish Tales With The Great Outdoors Collection

Daisie Hansen Circle

Hello Everyone!  Daisie here with a fun layout and process video featuring the Great Outdoors Fishing kit.  This kit comes with 9 double-sided 12×12 pattern papers, a 12×12 sticker sheet, and a sheet of 3D stickers.  I also added in a couple of the Great Outdoors puffy stickers. More than enough to document any big fish tales you may have!

I started with a white cardstock background from my stash.  I added some dark blue mist sprinkled on to set the scene.  I used a stock image of a fish that I found on Google for my template.  I then went to town with the papers in this kit to create my fish.

The Gone Fishin’ 12×12 paper was perfect for my fish.  One side has a beautiful ombre effect that starts darker on the bottom and lighter on top.  I chose to flip the paper the other way for the body of my fish, even though the anchors ended upside down.  The belly of the fish is created with the opposite side. It has a gorgeous misty outdoor scene.  I loved the color of the trees and thought it would make for a great fish belly.  I finished him off with some woodgrain fins from the b-side of the Into The Woods paper.

I matted my photo with a thin mat cut from the Catch Of The Day paper.  It has colorful fishing icons all over it.  While you can’t quite make out what they are from the mat that I used, it helps tie in all of the colors.  I added a lot of the 3D stickers as embellishments around my photo.  My title came from the 12×12 sheet of stickers that come with the kit.  I finished it off by bringing some more of the colors around my page with the Great Outdoors puffy stickers.  This collection is the perfect way to highlight this great catch!

Great Outdoors Mini Album – Guest Designer Traci Penrod

Hi everyone!  It’s Traci, visiting from Artsy Albums, and I’m excited that I was invited to be a guest designer today! I had so much fun creating this 6×6 mini album with The Great Outdoors collection.
I found a kraft chipboard album in my stash and loaded the cover up with fun papers and 3D stickers. That cute little truck embellishment is my favorite part!

For the first page I used more of the 3D stickers, along with a cute epoxy clip and arrow sticker. 
For the next two pages above, I added stick-on pockets to a few of the corners.  I love these!  They are great for tucking extra photos or journaling spots in.

I created a flip-up element on this page so that I could include a few more horizontal pictures.  The 4×6 “Relax & Unwind” piece was a great addition to the front of the card.

I really like how this collection has papers and embellishments for lots of outdoor adventures … camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, campfires, and more.  
Check out the Rice Paper border sticker above!  

Well that’s it for me!  I had tons of fun playing with The Great Outdoors, and I hope I’ve inspired you to save your fresh air adventures in a fun mini album.  Please stop by Artsy Albums sometime and say hello!

Pinterest Inspired Two Page Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. There are so many great project ideas on the Paper House Pinterest page, that it makes it the perfect place to go when you need a little creative inspiration. Today I’ve got a Pinterest inspired 2 page layout to share with you.

I actually found inspiration for my layout from 2 different layout pins. This one by Carolyn Johnson:

and this one by Julie Tucker-Wolek:

I took the split page set up and 2 photo placement from Carolyn’s layout.

I also copied her use of stick-on pockets as a design element.

I took inspiration from Julie’s use of a big circle on her layout and her use of 3 vertical photos.

I also drew inspiration from her cluster of embellishments underneath the center photo.

I love drawing inspiration from other people! There are so many wonderful, talented paper crafters out there. So next time you get stuck or need a little crafty inspiration, check out Paper House’s Pinterest page…you might just find an idea for your next project!Save

Turning a Single Page Sketch Into a Double Page Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. Today I’d like to walk you through turning a single page sketch into a double page layout. This is a really useful trick for when you have a sketch you really like, but have too many photos for a single page layout.

Supplies: The Great Outdoors Beneath the Stars, The Great Outdoors Into the Woods, The Great Outdoors Happy Camper, The Great Outdoors 3D Stickers, The Great Outdoors Cardstock Stickers, The Great Outdoors Planner Stickers, The Great Outdoors Hunting Adventures 3D Stickers, The Great Outdoors Epoxy Clips

Here’s the sketch I’ll be using today:

The first thing I like to do when working with a sketch is to pull my photos.

This is the point where I decided that I have enough photos that I need a 2 page layout instead of a single page layout. I laid my photos out into a left page and a right page. Since I am one photo short (on the right hand page), I’ll use the last photo space to ad a journaling tag instead.

 

For the left had page, I’ll follow the sketch, butiInstead of taking a single page and just creating it twice for a double page layout, I like to take the sketch and mirror it for the right hand page of the two page layout. Normally, I just do this in my head, but for the sake of this step-out I flipped the sketch so you can see what I mean in the photo above. I’ll be using the mirrored version on the right hand side of the layout.

Now that you know the basics of how your sketch will look on both the left and right hand sides, you can start building the base from your patterned paper. Again, you can see how the right hand page mirrors the sketch instead of being an exact replica.

Finish up the layout by adding your photos and embellishments.

Here you can see where I substituted a journaling sticker in place of a photo. You can also see that instead of putting a second title on my mirrored right hand page, I added a small cluster of embellishments. This keeps the feel of the layout cohesive without the clutter of 2 titles on one layout.

Turning a single page sketch into a double page layout is a great way to add flexibility to any sketch!
