Wedding Memories

Posted on Dec 24, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Hello all, Irit here! Lately, the only layouts I make are my dear daughter's wedding ones. I just made six of them... the photos are great and need to be scrapped. So today, I am going to share two more layouts made with those wedding photos and ColorWays' new colors. The first one was made with the Orchid Collection, and I made the mixed media background over the patterned paper with some stamps, stencils, and homemade mists.

Orchid1

First, I made the arrows with white Gelato and then made pink and blue homemade mists using Gelatos and FC tools (mist bottles). Then, I made stamped circles, added some Love words inside, and colored them with Gelatos again.

orchid2

orchid3

This is a fine example of making a mixed media background over a patterned dark paper. As you can see, the results can be unusual and pretty.

Product Used:

Paper House Orchid ColorWays "Lanterns"

Paper House Orchid ColorWays "Dark Bokeh"

Paper House Orchid ColorWays Accent Pack

Paper House Adore Puffy Stickers

Stencils - ArtPlorations

Paints - Gelatos from FC DMC

Stamps - StampPlorations

Ink - Clearsnap

Embossing powder - Clearsnap

The second wedding layout is made with the Gatsby Collection, and, again, I decided to "remake" the background by adding some stenciled circles using clear molding paste with glitter all over it. I used one big color photo and three more black and white wedding photos to make the photo cluster, and I made a big embellishment with a title cluster on the top of the page.

I think this ColorWays Collection is just perfect for wedding photos! I will add more of those to my daughter's wedding album in the near future.

Product Used:

Paper House Gatsby ColorWays "Gilded Door"

Paper House Gatsby ColorWays "Glamour"

Paper House Believe Puffy Stickers

Remember This Moment

Posted on Dec 8, 2015 9:02:28 AM

Hello, crafty friends, Giorgia here.

Today I have a little break from Christmas for you; let’s talk about weddings!

I got married last year, and I am scrapping the pictures using the fabulous Wedding Day Paper Crafting Kit!

I LOVE the new kits! They contain beautiful double-sided papers, a sheet of cardstock stickers that includes alphas, and a sheet of Sculpted™ stickers.

wedding1

I used paper scraps from previous projects to create layers. I distressed them and also cut some of them into banner shapes.

wedding2

I love to mix up different stickers to create texture; in this layout, I used chalkboard, Cork'd™, and Sculpted™ stickers.

I also used rub-ons here:

- Layer the picture with distressed paper from the Blossom Paper Pad and glue it down as shown.

- Add the big wooden phrase used as the title.

Love Always

Posted on Nov 10, 2015 8:55:16 AM

Hi everyone, Irit here. My daughter got married a few months ago, and I still scrap their gorgeous wedding photos. The Paper House Wedding Collection is just the best for those photos and for my own style. So today, I am going to share a couple of layouts made with this collection.

love1

The first layout is a very simple one, but still lovely. I just used a couple of papers arranged to create a diagonal corner and made my photo cluster with hand-cut flags made from another paper from the same collection.

The cardstock stickers were just perfect to make the corner, adding a kind of lace finish, and the puffy stickers made the title and a couple of embellishments around it.

love2

love3

love4

The second layout was made with the very same collection of papers, cardstock stickers, and some more puffy stickers.

love5

I used a punch to add the lace border and the 3D Wedding Stickers to make the embellishment cluster around the photo.

Product Used:

Paper House Wedding Day Paper Crafting Kit
Paper House Love Sculpted™ Stickers
Paper House Wedding Day Cardstock Stickers
Assorted craft shop embellishments

Here Comes the Bride

Posted on Oct 23, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Hello, crafty friends, Giorgia here.

This month at Paper House we have a "cohoperation" with PageMaps; we received Becky Fleck sketches to work with, and I created a LO about my wedding using Paper House's lovely new wedding collection and many other products.

Bride1

Bride Pagemap

It is always so fun for me to find new ways to use Paper House themed papers. This pink paper is from the Live by Faith Pad, a beautiful religious-themed pad, but I used a paper without words and drawings because this touch of pink was just perfect for my pictures.

Bride2

I love all the glitter on this diecut sticker, and I LOVE the new Sculpted™ stickers!

Bride3

Bride4

Bride5

Product Used:

Paper House: Wedding Day Paper Crafting Kit, Wedding Day 6" Paper Pad, Sparkle Puffy Stickers, Love Sculpted™ Stickers, Live by Faith Paper Pad, Live, Laugh, Love Cork'd™ Stickers, To Have & To Hold Paper Pad, Wedding Diecut Sticker Pack

Step by Step:

1. The background is a paper from the Wedding Day Paper Crafting Kit.
2. Cut a strip of pink paper from the Live by Faith pad, distress it with scissors, and adhere it in the middle of the background paper.
3. Cut the "Here Comes the Bride" tag from the To Have & To Hold pad and glue it down as shown. Cut a piece of light blue paper from the Wedding Day mini paper pad and adhere it as shown.
4. Apply the lace border stickers from the Wedding Day Paper Crafting Kit as shown.
5. Glue down pictures.
6. Now decorate the layout with stickers as shown.
7. Your layout is ready!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Love My Vera Wang

Hello, crafty friends, Giorgia here.

I got married last year, and today I have some layouts for you about my Big Day!

When I scrap my wedding pictures, Paper House is always my first choice; their wedding-themed collections are just FABULOUS! I used them with other non-themed items, but what I love most about Paper House products is that you can easily combine all of them!

Love my Vera Wang- Francesca Rossini

In the brand new paper crafting kits, there are some amazing alphas to easily create titles:

I love to mix up different stickers to create texture. Here, I used chalkboard, cork, and Sculpted™ stickers:

Noir Wedding Album

Posted on Oct 7, 2015 10:04:51 AM

Hello everyone, Francesca here!

Today I want to share with you a special mini album for me... it contains pictures of my wedding (now 4 years ago). It reminds me of a very special day—unforgettable. I used the Noir ColorWays Collection and I turned all my pictures black and white. I wanted the result to be elegant, but I didn’t want to embellish too much, because the pictures must be the true stars!

The album is very easy to make. I used simple black cardstock as a base (15x15 cm), and I pasted the patterned papers on top. 

I made a video tutorial; I hope that it is clear and understandable... but if you have questions or comments, write me! 

Enjoy!
