With summer in full swing, we were inspired here at Paper House by our beautiful gardens full of colorful, vibrant flowers! In fact, we were so inspired that we decided to dedicate our whole post to flowers! We have some beautiful flower products from stickers and embellishments to papers and magnets! Designer Linda Auclair created an amazing wall hanging full of flowers and butterflies. Let's take a look!
How amazing is this! Can't you just see it hanging in your daughter's room or your craft room!? Linda used a combination of our Nature Paper Pad, Oxeye Daisy 3D Stickers, Pansies 3D Stickers, Sunflower 3D Stickers, Gerbera Daisy 3D stickers, and Garden die cut stickers.
The butterflies from our die-cut sticker packs add so much color to this design! They are self-sticking and so easy to use!
The dimension, color and sparkle of this design are just inspiring! Luckily, Linda has instructions so you can create this beauty at home!

1. Paint wooden peace sign white.
2. Apply an even coat of Mod Podge decoupage medium to surface of peace sign, and adhere patterned paper. Smooth out any air bubbles with a brayer and allow to dry thoroughly.
3. Trim away excess paper with a craft knife.
4. Leaving 3D stickers on acetate backing sheets, cut apart sets and arrange in a pleasing pattern covering the peace sign. When you are satisfied with placement, remove from backing sheet one at a time, and adhere to the peace sign.
5. Bend wings of die cut butterflies slightly, and glue in place.
Want some more floral inspiration? No problem! Here are a few more projects from our floral line.
So, take some time to stop and scrap with the roses (and all of our other flowers)! Thanks a bunch for stopping by!

Today's post for Christmas in July features some amazing layouts! We know you have a million pictures from Christmas laying around, so here are four great ways to scrap them! Feast your eyes...
How cute! This adorable layout features our Christmas 6'' Paper Pad and Waiting for Santa 3D Stickers. AND buttons! You know how much we love buttons!
This great layout from out design team member Bev is just perfect for those family shots. She created this using our Christmas 6'' Paper Pad, Winter Lamp Post Scrapbook Paper, and All I Want for Christmas 3D Stickers. We love the layers and the stiching!
Designer Linda Auclair created this fun layout using our Night Before Christmas Colection. The Dear Santa Paper, Night Before Christmas Paper, and Waiting for Santa 3D Stickers remind us how exciting Christmas Eve was! Waiting for Santa, trying to fall asleep, and waking the next morning to find he had actually come!
Our Design Team member Giorgia used the same collection as Linda and look how differect the results can be! We love the color and feel she creates with the Dear Santa Paper and Waiting for Santa 3D Stickers!
Thank you to all of our designers and to you for helping us celebrate Christmas in July. For our scrapping friends, did you know that Paper House makes cards and magnets too!? While you are shopping for all of your crafting needs you might be able to scratch some people off that shopping list as well! Stop by the store and see everything we have to offer!

It's day two of our Christmas in July week and we thought, now that you have all of your Christmas cards done ;-), you might want to spruce up your holiday decor! These three projects are fun, easy ways to add a huge amount of pizzazz to the traditional tinsel and Christmas balls. Let's take a look.
This great Christmas tree is made from poster board that was curled and made into a cone shape (that also means you can make a variety of sizes). Then we cut one inch strips of paper from our Dear Santa Paper and Christmas 6'' Paper Pad. Take those strips and make slits every half inch then adhere them to your cone, overlapping as you go from the bottom up! Fluff and you're done!
How amazing would this banner look hanging from your mantle this Christmas!? Made from our Christmas 6'' Paper Pad, it's easy and we're sure Santa will leave you extra presents when he slides down your chimney and sees it!
So, now that you have decorations for your table and your mantle, your front door is next! This wreath, designed by Linda Auclair, features our Christmas 6'' Paper Pad and Merry Christmas 3D Stickers. We wrote about this wreath on the blog once before - here are the full directions!
Now, turn your air conditioner up to full blast, drink some hot cocoa and craft up a snow storm! Come on back tomorrow for some amazing Christmas layouts!

Don't get us wrong, we here at Paper House LOVE the sun and summer, but we also love the warm fuzzy feeling only the holiday season can bring. So, why not combine them!? Thus, Christmas in July was born. Now we know we are not the first ones to do this, but we will do it the best!
We'll continue our warm fuzzies all week leading up to our design team reveal on Friday! To start off our holiday, let's take a look at some great Christmas Cards. If you start now, you can make one for each person on your holiday list!
All of these great cards were made with a combination of our Christmas Paper Pad, Nutcracker 3D Sticker, and Merry Christmas 3D Sticker. These cards really show you how diverse our collection of Christmas items can be. Check out the Shop to see our full line of Christmas items. After all, Christmas is only 161 away!!
