Off the Page: Washington DC Frame

Posted on Aug 31, 2015 10:03:34 AM

Hello and welcome! Susie here today to share one last off the page project! I love to use my paper crafting supplies to create home decor items, and thanks to Paper House, this photo frame is one of the easiest I have ever made!

Washington DC Frame- Susie Bentz

Living in Washington DC, we take advantage of the opportunity to see the cherry blossoms that bloom every spring. I have some wonderful pictures of my children, and I hate to hide them all away in scrapbooks. For this project, I started by centering a 4x6 picture on 5x7 green cardstock and slipping it into an acrylic frame. On top of the acrylic, I outlined the picture with self-adhesive light pink pearls.

I created a tag by diecutting an area from the Paper House Cherry Blossoms paper that looks like marble, inking through the die to add a bit more detail and texture.

Using a little dimensional tape, I added the Washington DC cardstock sticker...

...and finished it off with some coordinating pink pearl Nestabling before adhering it to the frame with dimensional adhesive.

The Washington DC 2 Cardstock Stickers have tons of great mini-images of DC landmarks! I added the US Supreme Court on the right side and Abraham Lincoln on the left, tucking a tiny cherry tree sticker just behind him.

I used the star-studded border sticker to create a frame outside the pearls on the lower half. The sticker sheet also has a tiny sprig of cherry blossoms, which I placed on top of the pearls in the bottom right corner. Perfect!

Paper House has such a huge variety of stickers! I can see using this idea to create display frames for all sorts of travel destinations… and beach vacations… and sporting events… the possibilities are endless! 

Supplies:

Off the Page: Family Mini Album

Posted on Aug 27, 2015 9:57:34 AM

Hello, Paper House lovelies! It's Karyn here today, sharing an off the page project and another process video.

This week on the PH blog is all about off the page projects. To join in the celebrations, I've made a mini album of our family.

Famly Mini Album- Karyn SchultzI started with a set of six chipboard disks that I covered with paper from the Blossom Paper Pad. I then painted around the edge of each disk with white paint. Once this was thoroughly dry (overnight is best), I started with the decorating.

I kept my choice of embellishments to a minimum, using Cork'd™ Stickers from the Butterflies, Meant to Be, and Live, Laugh, Love packs, the Happy Moment Rub-On Transfers, and the Nature SnapShots™ Stickers.

Famly Mini Album- Karyn SchultzThe photos were all taken at a family photo shoot. I printed them in black and white, and each is approx 2" x 2". Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

Having a limited embellishment collection meant a reduced decision-making process—and an achievable project!  

Famly Mini Album- Karyn SchultzI also added a selection of pearls around some of the photos! Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

The black and white photos work well with the brighter papers in this collection. Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

Finally, I added some ribbons around the clip at the top to soften the look and finish it off! Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

Products Used:

Paper House Blossom Paper Pad
Paper House Meant to Be Cork'd™ Stickers
Paper House Nature SnapShots™ Stickers
Paper House Butterflies Cork'd™ Stickers
Paper House Live, Laugh, Love Cork'd™ Stickers

I also made a fabulous video to show you the whole process! Take a look!

 

Happy crafting!

Off the Page: Birthday Gift Bag

Posted on Aug 26, 2015 9:22:22 AM

Hello everyone, Karen here. I hope you have enjoyed the Design Team's off the page projects featuring Paper House products. For my project, I transformed a plain gift bag. I repurposed a popular clothing store's shopping bag into this fun birthday gift bag. You can make a personalized gift bag for any theme, holiday, or occasion.

Here's how I did it.

Directions:
1. The first step is to apply a strip of coordinating washi tape along the top edge of the gift bag so that it will have a neat and durable finished edge. Open the gift bag and place a small plastic box inside the bag so that you have something to press against to attach the washi tape. Start applying the washi tape on the side panel of the bag so the join is not too obvious, and allow half the width of the tape to overhang the edge of the bag. Next, clip the four corners of the washi tape up to the edge of the paper bag. Then begin to fold the washi tape over and stick it to the inside of the bag.

2. Cut out one cupcake from the Little Girl 8" Paper Pad and apply texture paint over the icing. Before the texture paint dries, sprinkle small beads over the wet paint, then gently press each bead halfway into the icing using a toothpick so that they are embedded and will be firmly attached when dry.

3. Next, cut out and attach a cherry to the top of the cupcake. Assemble the cupcake topper by mounting it on a scalloped circle and then attaching it to a bit of patterned paper, and then again to white cardstock. Lastly, embellish the bottom edge of the gift bag with a border strip and a row of Candle Puffy Stickers.

4. Finally, assemble the gift bag front by attaching the cupcake topper onto the 8x8" cupcake paper. Personalize the gift bag with a special message, or perhaps add the recipient's name using alphabet stickers.

TIP: Don't forget to decorate both sides of the gift bag and make a matching gift tag.

Products Used:

Paper House Little Girl 8" Paper Pad
Paper House Candles Puffy Stickers
Chipboard scalloped circle
Snow Writer Texture Paint
Beads
Washi tape

The photo-real candle stickers have a unique look and feel, with incredible detail and multiple levels of texture which make them irresistible. Visit Paper House to see their whole fantastic range of Puffy Stickers, and don't forget to drop by for a visit at Art & Soul and say hello.

Off the Page: Paris Love Tray & Bonus Project

Posted on Aug 25, 2015 9:50:56 AM

Hello everyone, Irit here. Paris, for me, is love—I love this wonderful city and the movie Casablanca, with its timeless line, "We'll always have Paris." Paris is so special to me, and it's my favorite city to vacation in, but I haven't visited for at least a decade. And if you can't visit Paris, you can at least make crafts about Paris. So this chipboard heart is my tribute to the city of love.

Paris Love Tray- Irit Shalom

Paint, crackle: DecoArts
Mist: Tattered Angels
Resin flower: ETI Easy Cast Resin
Clear embossing ink: Tsukineko
Gold embossing powder, flower mold: WOW! Embossing Powders
Other: buttons, flowers, lace, tulle

Directions:

1. Cut the Paris paper to fit the back of the heart-shaped chipboard tray and glue it down. Glue one bare chipboard heart over the paper.

2. Paint the chipboard frame with red paint and add One Step Crackle on top. Glue the painted chipboard over the first bare one.

3. Heat emboss the chipboard key with clear embossing ink and gold embossing powder. Cast a rose with Easy Cast Resin and let it dry for a few hours. Mist a cluster of paper flowers with pink mist and let dry. Mist the dry resin flower with the same pink mist.

4. Glue the 3D stickers as shown inside and outside the red frame. Add the golden key and gold buttons. Mist the finished piece with a bit of the same pink mist.

5. Glue lace and tulle on the back and make the fancy bow hanger.

BONUS PROJECT!

This is a second project, a garden sign, that I made for an Off the Page post. I made my own faux wood and arranged arrows and a full pack of Cork'd™ Stickers on top. How easy and great it is! Just one pack of stickers, and the whole piece is finished and beautiful!

Good morning everyone, Francesca here! Today I want to share with you a really easy home decor project! I used an embroidery hoop; I separated it and cut two paper circles with the help of the cutter.

Home Sweet Home Wall Hanging- Francesca Biancon

The circle of black cardstock is only to close the embroidery hoop at the bottom, while the patterned paper must be glued on. The paper from the In the Wild collection is fantastic; it looks like real wood!

Then, as you can see, I got on the imagination freeway. I glued on a resin frame and flowers, added Cork'd™ stickers and a SnapShots™ sticker... I let my creativity run wild! I glued glitter foam letters in the center. And here it is!
