Batter Up!

Posted on Apr 15, 2015 9:26:03 AM

Hello everyone, Susie here! My son played a lot of baseball when he was younger, but he didn’t spend a whole lot of time as catcher, so this series of pics with him behind the plate are unique. They also happen to be among my favorites, because when he caught me snapping away, he stuck his tongue out at me! Stinker!

Baseball- Susie Bentz

I absolutely love the graphic title from the Paper House Baseball Bleachers paper! It is a great match for the grungy feel of the new Colorways Noir Collection. I trimmed out the title and matted it with black cardstock. Behind that, I added a strip from the Edgings paper.

Baseball- Susie Bentz

The background paper is also from the Noir Collection. The Ironworks paper reminds me of the chain link fence that surrounds every Little League field in America! Baseball is all about statistics, so I added the number-filled circular element from the Stencil Grit paper. 

Baseball- Susie Bentz

Oh! I just had to highlight his facial expression with a black arrow from the Be Happy Rub-On Transfers. Here's another rub-on with the perfect sentiment:

Baseball- Susie Bentz

I added my son's name to the title with a very large chipboard alpha...

Baseball- Susie Bentz

...and I couldn't resist actually putting a baseball in his catcher's mitt!

Our Big Adventure

Posted on Apr 14, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Hi there, Laura here! Do you take a lot of photos on vacation? Silly question for a scrapbooker, right?! Coordinating paper and photos can be tough, but the new Family Vacation Collection from Paper House goes with anything, from a water park to visiting DC, like the LO I’m sharing with you today:

Our Big Adventure- Laura Cox

LOVE that there are great coordinating embellishments for this collection, too, like the Travel Cork’d™ Stickers and Our Big Adventure cardstock stickers. I’m a huge fan of having a lot of embellishment options! Here, I layered them up:

Our Big Adventure- Laura Cox

The camera in the above pic is one of the journal tags from the Family Vacation Collection tag paper, cut in half. Here you can see the top half and more of the fun Cork’d™ goodies:

Our Big Adventure- Laura Cox

The journal tags, along with the cardstock stickers, add a great focal point to call attention to the photo, and of course, give me a place to tell the story!

Products Used:

Noir Pocket Pages

Posted on Apr 13, 2015 9:48:16 AM

Hello, Paper House lovelies!

It's Karyn here, and today I have another project to share with you using fabulous Paper House products. 

I’ve made some pocket scrapbook pages for Week 10 in my "Schultz Family 2015" Project Life Album.

I've used lots of goodies from the ColorWays collection, including the ColorWays Noir Paper Pack, ColorWays Noir Accent Pack, Amazing Life Rub-On TransfersMake Today Rub-On Transfers, and Enjoy Puffy StickersNoir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

Here is a close-up of the left-hand side. I love this photo of Jessica showing off the hole where her tooth used to be! This was a quiet week for me, so I've included photos of our garden and some crafty, happy mail.

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

Rub-on transfers are a perfect accent on white cards. Here I've used one from the Amazing Life Rub-On Transfers

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

There are lots of elements in the ColorWays Noir Accent Pack that can be layered on Project Life cards. This photo is of one of my favourite breakfasts: toast with Vegemite (it’s an Australian thing!), tomato, and cheese... so yummy! 

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

Some of the papers in the ColorWays Noir Paper Pack are designed for PL cards. I've used one here, as well as adding some accents and flair I made from some of the patterned paper. I've also added a movie ticket and a week in review card I made using MS Word on my PC. 

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

Here is a close up of the right-hand side. Jessica loves crafting, so I had to include these special photos of her creations! 

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

I've used more cards cut from papers in the ColorWays Noir Paper Pack, as well as adding coordinating transfers. 

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

On this card, I've added a collection of rub-ons, accents, and Enjoy Puffy Stickers

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

This gorgeous card is in the ColorWays Noir Accent Pack. I added some pink cardstock behind the heart cutout for a pop of colour. 

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

The hospital photos on this page were when my daughter hurt her arm in an accident; I journaled the event and added it in this chevron envelope for privacy. 

Noir Pocket Pages- Karyn Schultz

Happy crafting!

32 Years - True Story

Posted on Apr 9, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Hello, my dear crafty friends! This is Irit here today, and this is the story of my True Story layout.

Usually, it's pretty hard to make masculine layouts. You can't add too many embellishments; you can't add too many rhinestones, too much glitter, bling, or anything with sparkle. The colors are pretty much muted and monochromatic, and our men don't like to be on that side of a camera.

So when I have good photos of my husband of 32 years, I scrap them, but if this photo fits the most gorgeous Paper House Old World paper pad patterns, I am more than happy with it.

32 Years- Irit Shalom

I took this photo on our short cruise vacation to Cyprus. It just screamed "scrap me" with the old window paper. To make it more interesting, I used distress ink with a stencil over the paper to imitate the old stone wall. The only products not from PH are the ones in my mixed title, made with part of a diecut tag and a few letter stickers.

32 Years- Irit Shalom

32 Years- Irit Shalom

Products Used:

Paper House Old World Paper Pad
Paper House Birds 3D Stickers
Paper House Garden Canvas Art Stickers
Paper House Picture Perfect Cork'd™ Stickers
Paper House Family Chalkboard Stickers
Tag - Pink Paislee
Letters - American Crafts
Stencil - Memory Box
Inks - Ranger

Directions:

1. Cut the window paper into two pieces. The left strip should be cut as a brick wall pattern. The inside should be cut into an 8x8'' piece. Make the stone pattern with a stencil and brown distress ink, and then glue the 8x8'' paper over the basic green one.

2. Glue the photo under the window and add a cut out tag and letters as shown.

3. Add all stickers around the page as shown. Handwrite your journaling over the chalkboard sticker and glue it near the photo.

It's so fun and easy to make great pages with loads of PH stickers of every possible kind! Thanks for stopping by!

Mother's Love

Posted on Apr 8, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Hello everyone, Giorgia here! Do you feel spring in the air? I do! I made a layout using fresh and vibrant colors, just perfect for spring. My hubby and I had the chance to take a pregnancy photoshoot for a couple of friends, and I love this picture from the shoot so much!

Mother's Love- Giorgia Rossini

For layering, I used a paper doily (I love them and use them all the time) and colorful Paper House papers.

Mother's Love- Giorgia Rossini

To create the background on this beautiful paper from the To Have & To Hold Paper Pad, I used a heart mask, coral mist, and ink drops. Then, I stamped tiny hearts and words.

Mother's Love- Giorgia Rossini

Then, I added all these lovely butterflies; Paper House has the greatest butterfly accents!

Mother's Love- Giorgia Rossini

Products Used:

Paper House Butterflies Cardstock Stickers
Paper House Mom 3D Stickers
Paper House Blossom Paper Pad
Paper House Rejoice Paper Pad
Paper House Nature Paper Pad
Paper House To Have & To Hold Paper Pad
Paper House Imagine Scrapbook Paper
Coral Mist
Mask
Stamps
Paper Doily

Directions:

  • Create your background using a heart mask and coral mist spray.

  • Let some paint drops fall on the paper. Simply open your mist and use the straw to do that by tapping it with your finger.

  • When the background is dry, stamp some small words as shown.

  • Create layers under your picture using a paper doily and colorful Paper House papers and adhere everything as shown.

  • Now embellish your layout with stickers and it is ready!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
