Relax and Escape

Posted on Nov 28, 2015 9:01:00 AM

Hello, it's Bev, bringing you a fun beach layout using Die Cut Stickers, among other products. OMG there are so many to choose from, but I am creating this fun beach page using the Serene Beach die cut pack. What amazing fun and Die Cut Stickers are a perfect accent to any project!


I started with some fun stenciled background using modeling paste which dries so fast when working with it. I added a small piece of punchinella for a pop of shimmer in blue, adding depth with layers and texture and some great accents too.


I added some 3D sticker beach accents and also a canvas sticker beach accent. All these mixed together were a perfect match for the fun beach page.


This section showcases a fun arrow used to form a clustered "relax and escape" type treatment, using small alpha stickers along with the newest 3D puffy words.


In this section you can see where I joined 3 different patterned papers to give me the background I was looking for. The main sheet was sand with beach grass. I fussy cut the water cresting at the shore for the bottom and then I added the worded border sticker to base the page. 

It also shows pieces from the die cut sticker pack.. the starfish,  the lighthouse and a great "life's better at the beach" piece. All are amazing. 

Product Used:

Paper House Beaches of the World Paper Pad
Paper House At the Beach 3D Stickers

Paper House Serene Beach Diecut Stickers

Paper House At the Beach Cardstock Stickers

Paper House Nautical 2" Stickers

Paper House Beach Canvas Art Stickers

Paper House Explore Puffy Stickers


Modeling Paste: Liquitex
Stencil: The Work Crafters

Thanks for stopping by ... see you again soon.

Crafty Christmas Cards

Posted on Nov 26, 2015 9:34:00 AM

Hello Paper House Lovelies!

It's Karyn here today celebrating Diecut Sticker week over at Paper House Productions. 

I've chosen to use the Winter Wonderland Diecut Sticker Pack and I've started to make my Christmas cards!!

christmas cards all

I've chosen a design and used it for all my cards, just varying the colored papers and the stickers. I've kept my card base neutral and white. Then I've layered either green or red paper from the ColorWays paper collection. Next I've added a layer of white cardstock which has been embossed, stamped and ribbon has been added (from my scraps of ribbon - I never discard any offcuts!)

snowflake card

Then it was time to add the diecut stickers. I've used 3 snowflakes on this top card - I used a dimensional to raise each one.

On this next card I stuck down first the "Joy Peace and Love" sticker down then I added the holly on top to add dimension for a 3-D effect. 

joy_peace_love card 

There are 2 of each sticker in each pack so I used both the pinecones on this card. 


Finally for this card I added a cluster of 3 stickers. 

christmas cluster

I've really enjoyed starting to make my Christmas cards and have been able to efficiently create these cards by using a common design and one pack of  die-cut stickers.

Have you started your cards yet??

Happy Crafting

Karyn xx

Clever Christmas Wrapping

Posted on Nov 24, 2015 8:48:45 AM

Good morning everyone, Francesca here! Christmas is coming so fast ... what I love to do is wrap gifts and find new alternatives to present them!

After all, the packaging is the anticipation of the gift, a surprise to be enjoyed while you remove the paper with curiosity! Today I used a glass jar to wrap a small gift...simple but I love it, it's delicious!

christmas jar 1

I lined the jar with gold paper so that you can't see inside. Then I glued two circles (one of patterned paper and one of white cardstock) and a wood star on the cap.

christmas jar 3

To decorate the jar I wrapped a red ribbon and then I cut a small tag on which I applied a black rub on, two bells and two golden laurel branches. I used the Merry And Bright paper, I love chevron!!

christmas jar 2

The packaging is original but simple and fast, do you like it?

Sticker Creativity

Hello everyone, Irit here! Today I am going to share two projects made with PHP sticker packs.

I love these sticker packs a lot! Each pack has multiple stickers so you can use them to make a few similar projects just by  using one set of stickers.

Altered Puzzle Banner

The first project was made for the Holidays  and I used a lot of stickers from the Winter pack.

Product Used:

Paper House Christmas Paper Pad

Paper House Christmas Costumes Puffy Stickers

Paper House Winter Wonderland Diecut Stickers

Stamp: Inspired by Stamping

Ink: Clearsnap, Tsukineko

Embossing powders: Clearsnap

Other: ribbon, old puzzle pieces, pearls, ribbons

Step by step instructions:

1.Cover five kid's old puzzle pieces with paper from the Christmas Paper Pad. Ink the edges with clear embossing ink and heat emboss with gold powder.

2. Stamp small holiday images with Inspired by Stamping stamps and heat emboss them in gold.

3. Attach all PHP stickers and paper die cuts as shown. Make holes and tie the ribbons to connect the banner pieces. Add some glaze over the paper die cuts. Add the golden pearled swirl over one of the pieces and randomly add some more pearls around.

Wizard of Oz Memory Game

The second project for today is a Memory game I made using the whole pack of die- cut Wizard of Oz stickers.


Product Used:

Paper House Wizard of Oz Paper Pad

Paper House Wizard of Oz Die-Cut Stickers

Clear package- recycled

This is a very easy to make project and the best part is that we have two of each and every die cut sticker in just one pack. So it's just a perfect way to make a memory game with your kids. I used the Wizard of Oz pack, but any pack can be used to make another new and exciting memory game.

First I glued the stickers over the same 2 pieces of Wizard of Oz paper from the paper pad and added the same stickers for each pair of cards. I also distressed the edges to make the game look a bit vintage.

Then I used a recycled clear package, added a piece of patterned paper inside to make the covered front and closed around with a piece of washi tape. Then I tied a similar dotted ribbon on the top of the package and my game was done!

Try to make another game with a differnt pack of die- cut stickers and then another and another. Pure fun!
