Blue Christmas

Posted on Dec 21, 2015 4:58:50 PM

Francesca here, bringing you a creative gift-wrapping project. I like to think about Christmas in unusual colors. Yes, we all think about classic red and green, but blue brings me to icy and fine worlds, and I like to present gifts with these shades. I used a paper from the Sapphire ColorWays Collection on my gift for a beautiful friend.

blue1

I made the box with a Gift Box Punch Board and decorated the top with a sentiment and snowflakes.

blue2

blue3

Finally, I added the vellum leaves and small hearts.

On the front of the box, I used the beautiful Merry and Bright Sculpted™ Stickers. I love them because they have a very sophisticated and elegant font that perfectly completed my packaging!

Merry blue Christmas, everyone!

Winter Wine Bottles

Posted on Dec 21, 2015 9:15:30 AM

Hello everyone, it's Erin. I love the look of decorated wine bottles, and when I saw these beautiful blue colored ones, I knew I had to create something with them. The blue reminded me of the cold, and I wanted some form of a decoration in my house post- Christmas for the winter days before Valentine's Day hits, so winter-themed bottles it is!

decobottlesI will admit my wine choosing as of late has been determined by the color and shape of the bottle, but luckily, the wine in these bottles was pretty good... such a hard job! Hahaha!  

Click here to see a video tutorial of how I made these beautiful bottles.

Here is a close-up of each bottle.

decobottle3aI used some of the most amazing products to create these snow lovelies. The Paper House stickers and diecuts of all the wonderful snowflakes you see on the bottles are what brought these pretty winter bottles to life.

We do not get much snow here in Texas, so this is my way of bringing it home!

Product Used:

Paper House Winter Wonderland Diecut Sticker Pack
Paper House Baby It's Cold Outside Puffy Stickers
Paper House Let it Snow 3D Stickers

Planner Craze

Posted on Dec 17, 2015 4:48:04 PM

Hello everyone, Christine joining you today. Have you jumped into the Planner Craze? I just recently got started in it! The more I played, decorated, and had fun with it, the more I realized how great some of my Paper House supplies would be. Specifically, I knew that the ColorWays collections would be fabulous! Today, I will show you how I used the Rouge, Emerald, and Sapphire ColorWays collections to jazz up three weeks of my planner.

Rouge PlannerOne of the things I like to do in my planner is add patterned paper rectangles to any parts of the day that I have free. I can write over them later if I need to, but I like the visual break from all the writing and the visual reminder that I have a break there to focus on myself and my family. For each week, I used the border sheet from the collection as a separator for my morning, afternoon, and evening rows. I love the polished look this adds.

rouge planner2

Since this week is heavy on Christmas activities, I added in some great cardstock stickers. They were a perfect match with the Rouge collection. Perhaps my favorite addition is the SnapShots™ stickers to the days! For this week, I used both music and basketball ones. These are absolutely perfect and are going to find a way into my weeks very regularly!

rouge planner3

I also added in some puffy stickers. This is a judgement call, as they do add bulk, but I liked how they looked, so I decided I wanted them in there!

On this week’s planner spread, I used the following supplies:

Rouge Trimmings ColorWays Cardstock

Rouge Umbrellas Cardstock

Rouge Trim Cards Cardstock

Christmas Stocking Puffy Sticker

Santa Hats Puffy Sticker

Merry Christmas Cardstock Stickers

Music SnapShots™ Sticker

Basketball SnapShots™ Sticker

For the next week, I used Emerald ColorWays—perfect for Christmas week!

emerald planner

I added in a few pops of red with more of the Merry Christmas cardstock stickers. I love how calm and empty this week looks—that’s just how it should be!

emerald planner 2

I used the same approach, filling in grids with patterned papers and using the borders. This time, though, I added in some accents from the Emerald ColorWays collection.

emerald planner4

When I don’t have a long checklist to add in the left hand column, I just have fun decorating it! Some Christmas patterned papers, combined with some Sculpted™ stickers, were perfect for this area!

emerald planner3

For this week, all my empty grids are filled with the same patterned paper. I haven’t done that before—I usually switch it up, but I like this look, too!

Supplies used for this week:

Emerald Accent Pack

Emerald Trimmings Scrapbook Paper

Emerald Leatherbound Scrapbook Paper

Merry Christmas Cardstock Stickers

Christmas Cheer Tags Scrapbook Paper

Red Flannel Scrapbook Paper

Merry & Bright Sculpted™ Sticker

For my last week, I was planning to use Gatsby, because Gatsby just screams New Year’s Eve, right? But it wasn’t flowing well with the colors that my planner already had. So I went with Sapphire and was so happy I did! It came out beautifully and has that fresh feeling of a new year! sapphire

This time, I returned to the varying patterned papers in my empty grids and brought back those SnapShots™!

sapphire planner2

The Sapphire accents played a pretty big role on this spread. The arrows were great for pointing towards New Year’s Eve and Day, and of course the word “hope” is just perfect for what you feel at that point in the year!

sapphire planner3

The Urban SnapShots™ Stickers were so perfect for this week! I have definitely got an even bigger love for my SnapShots™ now!

Supplies used for this week:

Sapphire Trimmings Scrapbook Paper

Sapphire Edgings Scrapbook Paper

Sapphire Mini Trim Cards Scrapbook Paper

Sapphire Accent Pack

Urban SnapShots™ Stickers

I hope you are looking at your Paper House supplies in a new light—there are so many great options for your planners! I can’t wait to dive into other areas to see what I can add!
