Travel Food Layout

Hello! Samantha here today with a travel food layout. My husband and I aren’t foodies by any means, but we are adventurous eaters. Whenever we travel we like to try any and every new food we can. It’s the only time I take lots and lots of photos of what we eat and drink!

Supplies: Explore Your World Passport Stamps, Explore Your World Map, Explore Your World Tags, Around the World Puffy Stickers, World Travel and Big Adventure Sticker Value Pack, Travel Planner Stickers

These photos are from Germany. While doner kebab is Turkish, not German, it’s super popular in Germany. My husband came back to the hotel one night with this yummy doner kebab in a box.

Paper House has released some of its stickers as 2 pack card stock sticker value packs. I grabbed more than a few of them, because they really are a fantastic value. I used the World Travel and Big Adventure sticker pack on this layout.

For my papers, I chose to use Explore Your World. This collection is the perfect travel collection. It’s full of rich colors and fun travel prints. The multi color flag style print of the Explore Your World Passport Stamps paper is one of my favorite papers. I love the multiple shades of blue and the pops of yellow and orange. It’s a great piece for tying everything together.

Since the card stock stickers are flat, I added some dimension with puffy stickers and silver foiled card stock stickers.

I finished up the layout with a bit of journaling. I made the journaling card from part of the Explore Your World Tags paper.

Personalizing a Travel Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. We recently returned from a trip to Germany, so today I want to share a little about personalizing a travel layout.

Travel Layout

Supplies: Explore Your World Passport Stamps, Explore Your World Luggage Tags, Explore Your World Map, Explore Your World Tags, Around the World Puffy Stickers, Germany 3-D Stickers, Southwest Adventure Paper Crafting Kit (white alphas), Color Washed Cardstock Multi Pack

Travel Layout-002

Explore Your World is everything I want in a travel collection: fun patterns, all-inclusive travel themes, beautiful words, and a gorgeous color palette. I prefer generic themed travel collections so that I can use it over a lot of photos on multiple layuots from a trip of any kind. I then customize my layout with more location specific stickers and embellishments.

Travel Layout-001

Since Paper House has so many great stickers (seriously my favorite thing about Paper House is the amazing variety of stickers), you’ll never have a hard time finding just what you need to customize your layout. I used alphabet stickers to add the name of the town. Because the town has two names, I used two different styles of stickers to add to the fun. Next, I used a Germany 3-D sticker to tie it all together. The mix of card stock stickers and 3D stickers adds texture to the layout as well. Our trip was overseas travel, so I stuck with Geo tag, map, and airplane themes for the rest of my embellishments. If you’re scrapping a beach trip you could use embellishments from collections like Sundrenched for a different kind of personalization.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Did you know today is actually a minor holiday in Mexico? It’s ironic, since many people think it’s Mexican Independence Day. But the truth is, it’s the day when Mexican forces bested the French at the Battle of Puebla. And how better to celebrate than with margaritas and Mexican food, right? I’m up on the Paperhouse Productions blog with another quick layout featuring Explore Your World Map Double Sided Paper, Explore Your World Tags Double Sided Paper, Passport Stamps Double Sided Paper, and Mexico Destinations Stickers.

My favorite part about this collection is that the coordinated papers make it so easy to mix and match. Once I cropped my layering elements, I created a film strip-esque for my photos.

I love the look of stitching on paper, and constantly try to incorporate stitches outside of the typical straight lines. I picked this stitch pattern because it reminded me of a Mayan pyramid.

To break up the straight lines, I spackle a think layer of white gesso for a journaling background, as well as a little bit to help my alpha stand out. Is it weird this it made me think of sour cream?

Aaanyways, the finishing touches were the Mexico stickers. These little cuties were the… Sour cream on the Taco – _- (Yes, I HAD to).

And I’m in love! Be sure to hop on the shop to check out all these must-have supplies!

Clear Sticker Backgrounds=Travel Fun!

IMG_6923Today, I got to have a ton of fun by choosing a product that I have been wanting to work with and haven’t gotten a chance to yet. I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Sticky Pix Clear Cuts Adventure Awaits with Foil Accents . I didn’t intend to use the whole pack…but….109 stickers later, I am in love with this super fun custom background!

IMG_6922

I started out by tracing around a kitchen bowel (yep! very technical and sophisticated work) to create the orange background for my photo to be contained within. I knew that this was going to have to be pretty bold and not too busy because of the rest of my layout design ideas. I then used by sewing machine to add some stitching around the outside border of the page as well as around the circle element.

Next, it was time to go sticker crazy! I grabbed the sticker flip book and just started adding stickers to the entire background. I started with the biggest designs and moved by way thru all the way to the smallest designs.

IMG_6921

Last step? I went ahead and added some patterned paper scraps behind my photo and a few more stickers from The Great Outdoors Camping Paper Crafting Kit on dimensional adhesive and the layout was complete!

I would love to have you stop by the process video and check out how this fun layout came together.

Traveler’s Notebook – Beach Trip Memories

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you all today!  As a scrapbooker, I love making albums full of memories.  Lately, I’ve found a great new way to take notes and remember the trips we go on…..a traveler’s notebook.  Paper House has some gorgeous ones!

We love our yearly trip to North Carolina and the beautiful beaches there.  The Paper House Tropical Journey Book is a perfect fit for this years road trip!

Road Trip 2018 PHP TN by Laura C

The Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad and Sun Drenched Cardstock Stickers pair up to make great accents for the notebook.

Paper House washi tape is always fun to use in a travel journal or planner.  It’s easy to layer on cardstock and die cut to make great accents, or to use as borders.

Tropical TN close up #2

It’s also great to mix and match with the Sun Drenched Cardstock Stickers which include an alpha in addition to the beach themed stickers.

Road Trip 2018 PHP TN page 2

The Sun Drenched papers and stickers are great for creating little scenes on your page and all compliment each other perfectly.  And those cute little starfish and seahorses on this page are part of the Micro Stickers collection from Paper House Life Organized. They are a good way to highlight bullet points you’d like to make sure to remember.

Road Trip 2018 PHP TN page 3

The different sizes of washi tape in each of the Paper House washi sets make great page dividers, or you can layer them together to make wider borders.

Tropical TN close up #3

And to wrap it all up, the embossed outer cover is so detailed, has a band to secure everything, and you can add a cute little charm to add a little extra something.

Tropical TN 2018 close up #1

This charm, is a simple paper clip, with 2 paper circles glued together over it, and a Neon Tropical Faux Enamels sticker.  A great little finish to this road trip journey notebook!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop by soon for more inspiration!

Supplies Used: Paper House: Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad and Cardstock Stickers, Neon Tropical Faux Enamels, washi tape, Journey Notebook, micro stickers.

Printers Tray

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today and  I’m sharing a fun printers tray project using some great products from both Paper House AND Xyron….what a perfect combo!

This project starts with a whole bunch of Paper House and Xyron goodness…..

Xyron close up #1

They all come together to create this piece of home decor that captures our family trip to Arizona!

Call of the Wild XyronPH 2018

Paper House has great Travel 2D stickers for the states and the Succulent Faux Enamel Stickers work well with the desert vibe on this project.  Think outside the box when you are using stickers….in this set, many of the plants are in cute little clay pots.  Some were left that way, but some,  I trimmed off the cactus to use on its own and layered it into torn pieces from the Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad.  The Sticky Pix Clear Cuts are also a great way to add interest to a project, and being clear, they can go right on your photos as well.

Something that brings this project all together is the beautiful washi tape.   Love that the Paper House washi comes with a wide and narrow width tape in the same package!  You can layer it up on plain white or black cardstock to create backgrounds, borders, and also die-cut to create a project title.

Xyron close up #3

The Xyron Sticker Maker makes it easy to add adhesive to the letters, and if you need a little clean up of the extra adhesive, the Xyron Adhesive Eraser has got it covered….nothing like the perfect tools to bring a project together!

Xyron close up #2

All the individual squares and layers on this project are held together beautifully by the Xyron Tape Runner.   It has a strong adhesive that holds all the layers in place.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration!

Supplies:  Paper House: Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad, Arizona Travel 2D Stickers, Stargazer Washi, Sticky Pix Clear Cuts, Succulent Faux Enamel Stickers, The Great Outdoors Fishing Paper Kit.  Xyron: Sticker Maker, Adhesive Eraser, Tape Runner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sun Drenched Just Beachy LO

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today to share a bright and “Just Beachy” LO created with the beautiful rich colored, foil accented papers, matching stickers, and alphas, found in the Paper House Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These paper pads have so much in them to play with with!! The great journal type cards you can layer up (the starfish and the “splish splash”) and also the cute stickers you can use for fun accents around your pictures.  The quality of the heavy cardstock stickers from Paper House is amazing!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The foiled papers are great to use as an accent….here I just cut a 2&1/2″ strip of the paper and then cut it into different widths.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They are arranged at different heights under the edge of the paper before being glued down.  A little tip to make them easier to work with….once I thought the pattern of the paper strips looked good, I gently lifted the paper mat, and used a strip of double stick tape to hold all the paper strips together.  Then I could move them around where needed to glue them onto the page, without having to worry about them shifting out of place.  I curled them up slightly to give them a little more of a fringe effect.

Another bonus is having matching alphas right in the Sun Drenched paper pad!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Cute and colorful….I love having matching alphas to add titles to my page…..how about you?  When I scrapbook, I tend to have one or two pages in a set of pictures that have journaling telling most of the story, for the other pages,  I like my title to tell the story.  It’s also great to have a couple of different alpha options included to make the title a little more interesting.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to check out all the fun inspiration this month using the Sun Drenched 12×12 Paper Pad!

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut TitleHi everyone! Khristina here with another super fun project using those amazing new 12×12 paper pads. Today, I decided to combine elements from the Sun Drenched paper pad along with the Color Washed paper pad to create a unique oversized title element. The bright, bold colors in these two collections really worked perfectly with a black cardstock background and really created a fun look!

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

For this layout, I used some older chipboard letters as templates to trace around and create the letters from some of the amazing, bold patterns in the Sun Drenched and Color Washed paper pads. I wanted to emphasis the green, yellow, and blue colors from my two photos and there were so many perfect choices to work with! Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

I added a few embellishments from my stash as well as one of the sticker borders from the Sun Drenched paper pad to add some dimension and little details to my photos and hand-cut banners.

Adventure Scrapbook Layout Featuring A Hand-Cut Title

I really had a blast playing with these bold colors and I hope that you will stop by and check out my video for even more details into how this page came together! I would love to see what you create and challenge you to use a dark-colored background to help bold colors pop off the page!

Destinations Stickers-North Carolina LO

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hello everyone!  It’s Laura here with you today, sharing a scrapbook page created with the Paper House Destinations Travel stickers.  These are great if you love to travel….about anywhere you go, they have you covered!

Destinations PHP 2018 Laura C

We travel to the beach in North Carolina every year, and of course I take a lot of pics to scrap!  These Paper House Destinations stickers have a great selection of different stickers whether it’s a road trip, a beach trip, or if you are just playing tourist and seeing some of the sights.

I did start this LO off with the Marbleous….one of the beyond gorgeous 12×12 paper pads Paper House has to offer.  It includes border strips….you can see where I layered some of those along the top and bottom edges of my page.  It also has a lot of gorgeous foiled papers, like the hexagon paper I used.  I cut it into 2 pieces, and fussy cut around one edge to give it the page a fun background.  Here is a picture before I added in the other layers and photos:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These marbled papers are truly stunning!  They make such a great backdrop for pictures, and there are so many different color palettes to choose from in this one 12×12 pad.

In this close up, you can see the foil, and better yet, you can see the amazing details in the Destination stickers!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Don’t you love the little license plate and the road sign?  Adorable!!  Do you take the pictures of the state welcome signs like I do?  Even if you don’t you can use these stickers!  They really layer up great too!

These Destinations sets also have a perfect little state outline sticker too.  It’s such a fun detail as you can see here:

Scrapbook Layout Featuring Destinations Stickers

Heather Little Circle (1)

Hello lovely friends! Heather here with a 12×12 layout featuring the amazing destination stickers. They are perfect for all of your travel themed layouts! I created a layout about a road trip that my family took in the summer of 2017.

fullsizeoutput_149e

The destination stickers worked great for my layout! I also did some hand stitching on this layout that I think turned out great! I didn’t want to over embellish because I used a ton of photos on this layout! I also pulled in some paper and stickers from the 12×12 Color Washed paper pad. I used a sheet of paper to mat my whole layout on as well as a tiny mat around each photo! Below will be a list of my supplies used as well as my process video for this layout, I hope you will check out how this layout came together featuring the Destination Stickers!
