It's Susie on the blog today, and she's made an awesome layout—perfect for those memories made with Dad!
Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, so I thought I would share a layout from one of those simple father-daughter moments we experienced this year: power tool time!
I started the layout with this really cool background paper. It looks like a blueprint rolled out onto a table and comes complete with scattered screws and nails and coffee cup stains!
I started by playing with photo placement, creating a simple collage by overlapping the pictures, and then added in the alpha stickers to create the title. Paper House has a wonderful set of Handyman 3D Stickers, and they were perfect accents for these pictures of my daughter learning how to use a circular saw. See the "Under Construction" sticker just above the title? I love the red twine!
I grouped more of the 3D Stickers under the pictures to create a border...
...and I could not resist using the measuring tape 3D Sticker above this close-up picture of my daughter. "Measure twice, cut once" is something my father always told me!
It is really a fast and easy layout to pull together, thanks to the detailed background paper and 3D Stickers from Paper House.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find some time to play today!

A baby's first birthday is always fun to celebrate! So much goes into the planning, preparation, and partying that it's the perfect event to scrap. We love this layout by design team member Christine Meyer, that captures one of the best parts of a 1st Birthday Party - the cake SMASH!
"My youngest son turned two so I figured it was about time to get his first birthday pages finished. Paper House has some fabulous new 3D stickers
that were perfect for creating this layout.
I like to try to include more than one picture whenever possible on my layouts. Partially because I like how the pictures look and partially because I like how it tells the story more completely. For this layout I layered three pictures on top of patterned paper from the Animals paper pad. I used a combination of square pieces and circle pieces that I cut out. I created three clusters of circles and then added the 3D stickers to those with one area being a title.
3D stickers are great because often you can pull your title and most of your embellishing from them and they are already coordinated for you!"

To kick off October, we have an amazing double layout from our design team member Bev. Bev and her family have a Fall photo shoot every year. Those photos were all the inspiration she needed to create this Autumn-rific project! Let's take a look.
How adorable is this!? We LOVE the photos and how she used different sizes. She also kept it interesting by placing some photos on an angle - love that!
Nothing says Fall like beautifuly colored leaves! Our Fall Foliage Paper is the perfect backdrop for all of your fall projects. We love the burlap accents too. All of the tones work so well together. They really let the photos speak.
Bev also used our Give Thanks 3D Stickers as accents. They add great color and demention and pair so nicely with the Generations Paper Pad accents.
To make this layout, Bev used our Generations Paper Pad, Fall Foliage Scrapbook Paper, and Give Thanks 3D Stickers.
If you've fallen for Bev's layout, stop by her blog and leaf some love! Why not have your own Fall photo shoot!?

As we wind down our Canvas Week, we have a deligtfully simple and beautiful layout for you from our design team member Kim. Kim created a page using a beautiful black and white photo of her grandmother when she was young. Let's take a look!
We LOVE the contrast of the red roses with the black and white photo! Kim used our Rose Garden Paper, Garden Paper Pad, and Sing Your Song Canvas Stickers to create this amazing layout.
The canvas stickers take a back seat in this layout to the bright roses, but they add so much with their great sentiments and beautiful images. They also give great dimension along with the fussy cut roses that she popped up! What a great way to highlight an amazing photo!
If you love this layout, stop by Kim's blog to see all of her great projects and layouts. Stop by Wednesday for our last day of Canvas Week! The great sale also ends Wednesday, so stock up now!

We here at Paper House can't really afford to be partial to any one sticker, but I have to tell you that the Nature Canvas Art Stickers are probably our favorite becasue of their sentiments! With sayings like "Adventure is Worthwhile", and "Let's find a beautiful place to get lost", how can you not LOVE them??
Today's Canvas Week project comes from our design team member Erin. She created this layout around a photo she took of her Dad while on a hike in Colorado.
"The picture is of my father on our trip this past summer to Colorado on a hike we went on one day. He leaned up on a tree and started to smile as he was talking to some other hikers we met on the trial. This picture came as a quick snapshot without him knowing I was taking it. It is just so calm and peaceful, he loves his natures hikes."
Let's take a look!
Isn't this just beautiful? We love all of the layers of paper and stickers. There are so many elements but they all work so well together. The top left title is just awesome, with its burlap and the Canvas stickers, LOVE!! Erin used our Generations Paper Pad, Colorado Map Paper, Grandpa 3D Stickers, and Nature Canvas Art Stickers to create this dynamic, beautiful layout.
We would never think to put the 3D Grandpa stickers with a nature layout, but boy do they look good together!
Look at all of those layers of paper! The tones and patterns that she choose are just perfect, all working together and not becoming too busy.
The real stars of this layout are the amazing picture AND the Canvas Art Stickers! They are the perfect element to bring this layout to life! And it doesn't hurt that they match perfectly with the colors and theme!
You can switch out the Grandpa stickers for any theme if you have some great nature shots at home. If you would like to create this layout for yourself, here's how:
Paper House Generations Paper Pad
Paper House Colorado Map Paper
Paper House Grandpa 3D Stickers
Paper House Nature Canvas Art Stickers
1. Using the Colorado paper as a background, use sections of cardstock and papers from the Generation paper pad to create layers under the picture.
2. Add in black chipboard, burlap, twine, and various stickers from the Grandpa and Nature canvas sets.
If you love this layout, you just have to see all of Erin's layouts and projects on her blog. Don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see another great canvas project!
