Diecut Sticker Pack Week

Today's blog will bring us to the beach and to Oz! First we'll catch a wave and visit the Emerald City with design team member Irit. Let's get going!

Catching Waves- Irit Shalom

How beautiful and fun is this amazing layout!? Don't you LOVE how Irit lined up the horizon on her photo and the paper! How creative!

Irit used our Endless Summer Paper Pad and Fun Beach Diecut Sticker Pack to create this summery layout.

Catching Waves- Irit Shalom

We love the layers of stickers and the fussy cut splash in this grouping.

Catching Waves- Irit Shalom

The Diecut stickers are so easy to use! No mess - just peel and stick!

Catching Waves- Irit Shalom

The color of her title and the added glitter really catch your eye!

If you have some fun beach photos that are just waiting for the right scrapportunity, here's how to make this great layout:

Products Used:

Paper House Endless Summer Paper Pad
Paper House Fun Beach Diecut Sticker Pack
Cardstock
Chipboard Title
Ink
Embossing Powder

Directions:

1. Cut the sea view paper to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2'' and ink the edges with blue gelato paint. Use yellow gelato to make "sun rays" with mask on the right top corner. Glue the photo as shown and be sure to find the right connection of the sea on your photo to the sea line on the paper.

2. Hand cut the huge glitter "wave" from another paper from the same pad and glue it over the photo. Glue all stickers from the pack as shown: some on the background and some on the front, making the big cluster on the left low corner of your page.

3. Cover the bare chipboard with teal glitter embossing powder and glue the title on the front as shown. Add some glaze drops to imitate the water and let it dry. Add some blue and reddish mist near the "sun rays" and trim a sun sticker to fit the corner.

 As an added bonus, Irit shows us an amazing project you can create using The Wizard of Oz™ Diecut Sticker Pack.

Hooked on Diecut Sticker Packs!

Posted on Oct 23, 2014 9:46:15 AM

Diecut Sticker Pack Week

For today's Diecut Sticker feature we have the catch of the day! Design team member Erin has created an amazing layout using the Outdoors Diecut Sticker Pack that you are reely going to love!

Hooked On Fishing- Erin Reed

How cool is this layout!? There are so many layers and details, you could look forever and not see everything!

Erin used our Gone Fishing Paper, Family Chalkboard Stickers, Grandpa 3D Stickers, Fishing 3D Stickers, and Outdoors Diecut Sticker Pack to create this amazing project.

Hooked On Fishing- Erin Reed

The Grandpa 3D stickers go so well with this theme! We love this exopy clock!

Hooked On Fishing- Erin Reed

Erin actually took apart the "a reel hobby" sticker from the Fishing 3D stickers so she could place the fishing rods vertically on her layout. How creative!

Hooked On Fishing- Erin Reed

If you're having trouble seeing where she placed the Outdoors Diecut Sticker Pack, look in the vertical layers in the background. She tucked several of them in between them! The fish are peeking out and look like they may be swimming upstream.

Hooked On Fishing- Erin Reed

Our chalkboard stickers are perfect for journaling, and they match so well!

If you have a fisherman in your family and want to create this layout for yourself, head on over to Erin's blog for more details! Don't forget to stock up on our Diecut sticker pack, they are 20% off until 10.30.14!

Diecut Stickers are a SLAM DUNK!

Posted on Oct 22, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Diecut Sticker Pack Week

Day two of Diecut Sticker Pack week. If you still haven't tried our Diecut Stickers, take a page out of our design team member Christine's playbook and give it a shot! It's a win-win! Let's take a look at THREE cards that Christine created using our Basketball Diecut Sticker Pack.

Basketball Card- Christine Meyer

With just a little cardstock and a diecut sticker pack, look what you can create! We love the tag in the background with the ribbon too. It just adds so much!

Basketball Card- Christine Meyer

The wooden accents are great too, so creative!

Basketball Card- Christine Meyer

If you would like to create these amazing cards at home, here's how:

Products Used:

Paper House Basketball Diecut Sticker Pack
White Cardstock
Blue Cardstock
Orange Cardstock
Wood Accents

Directions:

1. Create a base

2. Add a white tag to the base with orange ribbon tied through the hole

3. Use a die cut sticker that can be a sentiment, one basketball player, and a basketball and
layer them on top of the tag.

4. Add a wood speech bubble and some wood stars to embellish.

With a simple formula like this you can create a bunch of cards from one die cut sticker pack and still not have them look the same - but also not have to completely reinvent your design each time.

If you love these cards, head on over to Christine's blog to see her other great projects and layouts! Go, Fight, Win!

Whoo's the Cutest Wall Decor!

Posted on Oct 20, 2014 10:04:26 AM

We hope we didn't scare you too much last week with all of our spooky Halloween projects. But just in case we did, we thought we would treat you to a sweet and not-at-all spooky project from our design team member Giorgia. She has made two amazing versions of a kids' wall decor - one for a boy and one for a girl. The best part? She did a photo tutorial! Let's take a look.

Owl Wall Decor- Giorgia Rossini

Owl Wall Decor- Giorgia Rossini

How adorable are these!? They would make the perfect shower gift for friends and family! Let's find out how to make these amazing projects!

Products Used:

Paper House Nature Paper Pad
Paper House Owls Puffy Stickers
Paper House Little Princess 3D Stickers
Paper House Baby Boy Chalkboard Stickers
Paper House Baby Girl Scene 3D Sticker
Paper House Baby Boy Scene 3D Sticker
Paper House Moon & Back Canvas Art Stickers
Paper House 1st Birthday Boy 3D Stickers
Paper House My Sunshine Canvas Art Stickers
Wooden block (10'' x 7'')
Glue Gun
Felt Shapes
Wire
Pliers
Gesso
Beads

Directions:

Step 1- Owl Wall Decor

With a brush, apply gesso on the whole wooden surface.

Step 2- Owl Wall Decor

Cut 3 pieces of wire (approx. 6'') for the girl decor and 3 pieces for the boy decor. With pliers, make a loop on one side to stop the beads, then thread the beads onto the wire and make another loop at the end to lock the beads into place.

Step 3- Owl Wall Decor

For boy decor, after applying beads, give the wire a spiral shape with the help of a brush or pencil: simply roll it up just like the photo.

Step 4- Owl Wall Decor

This is the result!

Step 5- Owl Wall Decor

With glue gun, adhere the pieces of wire to the wood. You can also put some tape to secure them better.

Step 6- Owl Wall Decor

When the gesso has dried, glue paper on the wood and cut off the excess. You can apply paper to the front only, or add some to the sides and back.

Step 7- Owl Wall Decor

With your fingers, apply some gesso to the border to create a distressed effect on the paper. Do this on all four sides.

Step 8- Owl Wall Decor

Decorate wires: with a glue gun, attach felt heart, flower and star to the wire. Then place Paper House stickers.

Step 9- Owl Wall Decor

Girl Decor: Adhere Baby Girl Scene and decorate with a felt star and little hearts.

Step 10- Owl Wall Decor

Boy Decor: Decorate wires; with glue gun attach felt flower and star, then place Paper House stickers.

Step 11- Owl Wall Decor

Boy Decor: Adhere the Baby Boy Scene 3D Sticker to the front and decorate with a felt flower. Place heart from 1st Birthday Boy 3D Sticker in the center of the flower.

If you love this project as much as we do, head on over to Giorgia's blog and let her know! You'll also get to see more of her great projects and layouts.

For our first project design team member Irit has created an amazing layout AND a great painters tray full of Halloween hauntings! Let's take a look.

Halloween Hauntings LO- Irit Shalom

While they don't celebrate Halloween in Israel, Irit says she has a special connection to our Halloween products and just can't get enough! She used a photo of her niece who lives here in the states to create this amazing layout.

Irit used our Generations Paper Pad, Eastern Enchantment Paper Pad, Halloween Hauntings 3D Stickers, Bats 3D Stickers, Cemetery 3D Stickers and Cemetery Scene 3D Sticker on this great project.

Halloween Hauntings LO- Irit Shalom

We love how she used the backer card for the Cemetery Scene as part of the layout. How creative! Irit is really great at layering and creating beautiful and interesting groupings of stickers. The more you look, the more elements you see!

Halloween Hauntings LO- Irit Shalom

Irit's second project is an amazing Halloween tray that would look great on my mantel right now!

Spooktacular Tray- Irit Shalom

This project makes us want to throw a spooky Halloween party, like, right now! It's the perfect size to feature our 3D stickers, too! Irit used the Spooktacular 3D Stickers and Halloween Hauntings 3D Stickers to make this great project.

And this layout, from design team member Kim, will surely give you the creeps! Ready your flashlight...
