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!

Off the Page: Family Mini Album

Posted on Aug 27, 2015 9:57:34 AM

Hello, Paper House lovelies! It's Karyn here today, sharing an off the page project and another process video.

This week on the PH blog is all about off the page projects. To join in the celebrations, I've made a mini album of our family.

Famly Mini Album- Karyn SchultzI started with a set of six chipboard disks that I covered with paper from the Blossom Paper Pad. I then painted around the edge of each disk with white paint. Once this was thoroughly dry (overnight is best), I started with the decorating.

I kept my choice of embellishments to a minimum, using Cork'd™ Stickers from the Butterflies, Meant to Be, and Live, Laugh, Love packs, the Happy Moment Rub-On Transfers, and the Nature SnapShots™ Stickers.

Famly Mini Album- Karyn SchultzThe photos were all taken at a family photo shoot. I printed them in black and white, and each is approx 2" x 2". Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

Having a limited embellishment collection meant a reduced decision-making process—and an achievable project!  

Famly Mini Album- Karyn SchultzI also added a selection of pearls around some of the photos! Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

The black and white photos work well with the brighter papers in this collection. Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

Finally, I added some ribbons around the clip at the top to soften the look and finish it off! Famly Mini Album- Karyn Schultz

Products Used:

Paper House Blossom Paper Pad
Paper House Meant to Be Cork'd™ Stickers
Paper House Nature SnapShots™ Stickers
Paper House Butterflies Cork'd™ Stickers
Paper House Live, Laugh, Love Cork'd™ Stickers

I also made a fabulous video to show you the whole process! Take a look!

 

Happy crafting!

Karyn xx

What's A Wedding Without Tons of Photos!?

Posted on Mar 24, 2015 9:31:20 AM

Paper House Wedding Hop

Welcome to day three of our wedding week! We think that one of the most important things you can take away from your wedding are the photos! Many times, you will have hundreds of beautiful photos. Today's projects show you how you can incorporate a LOT of photos into your project in a beautiful way! Design team members Giorgia and Irit really outdid themselves!

We also think that a handmade card is a huge deal in the sea of shelf-bought cards you get on your wedding day. Why not make the happy couple a custom card!? Design team member Francesca shows us how easy and beautiful that can be!

Giorgia used our To Have & To Hold Collection (along with come ColorWays) to make a beautiful mini album from ONE piece of scrapbook paper. We thought that sounded inpossible, too, but she included a video to show you how!

 Wedding Mini Album - Giorgia Rossini

Wait until you see the inside of this amazing album! The colored elements on the cover are from Giorgia's wedding invitation! What a great idea!

Wedding Day- Irit Shalom

Irit did an amazing job combining all of these photos with the perfect embellishments!

Cork'd Mini Album

Posted on Mar 3, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Cork'd Week

Hello and welcome! Susie here today to wrap things up for the Paper House Cork'd Week. I have certainly enjoyed all the fabulous projects the DT has shared featuring the trendy new stickers!

My project is a mini-album I created for my husband. In October, we joined a group of friends at the Northern Virginia Brewfest, and I tried to capture all the fun memories.
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzMost of the papers are from the 8" Night Out Paper Pad.

To be honest, I am not much of a beer drinker (meaning I don't drink beer AT ALL), so I entertained myself by taking pictures; there were lots of cool beer taps! Here, my sweetie is getting his first brew of the day...
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie Bentz...and he had a great big smile on his face! I found the perfect accent in the Picture Perfect Cork'd Sticker set.
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzThere were cooking classes running at one of the booths sharing recipes using beer (great chili and kettle corn)!
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzI couldn't resist using the "Be Hoppy" sticker from the Woodland Cork'd Sticker set because I am just a pun-ny girl! I also found another perfect little accent on the Beer Cardstock Stickers: some hops!
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzAt The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzI found this banner accent in the Good Life Cork'd™ Sticker set.
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzI layered the Cheers 3D stickers and cardstock stickers at the top of the page.
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzIt was funny that I got the first "beer" of the day; of course, mine was a root beer, and you can just imagine there was not a very long line at that booth!
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie Bentz"My Deer Friend" Aimee and I were on the prowl for some (non-existent) craft booths.
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzThis little arrow sticker is from the Picture Perfect Cork'd Sticker set.
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzI created this cute border across the bottom of the page with the 2" Beer Stickers.
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzAgain, I have to say that the Night Out Paper Pad has some really great papers. I love the border across the top of this page, don't you?
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzOur friends Jimmy and Rachel were "Picture Perfect!"
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzThere were all kinds of great food booths at the Brewfest! Yum!

At The Pub Mini Album- Susie Bentz

One last chance for a smile; "Say Cheese!"
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzI finished off the back cover with the Beer Foam 12" Scrapbook Paper. Such a great collage of the foam with beer caps!
At The Pub Mini Album- Susie BentzI love the texture and color the new Cork'd stickers add to this mini; they are such fun accents!

Products Used:

Paper House Beer Foam 12" Scrapbook Paper
Paper House Night Out Paper Pad - 8"
Paper House Beer 2" Stickers
Paper House Beer Cardstock Stickers

It's All About The Shoes

Posted on Nov 24, 2014 10:33:33 AM

Today we're going to follow the yellow brick road... wearing some amazing shoes! Design team member Kim has created a mini album with Paper House and Want 2 Scrap products that will have every Wizard of Oz and shoe fan drooling! Let's take a look.

WOZ- Kim Kendell

We LOVE this Paradise Chipboard Album from Want 2 Scrap! It looks amazing with our Wizard of Oz Paper Pad peeking through! All Kim used on this great album was our Wizard of Oz Paper Pad and Want 2 Scrap Paradise Chipboard Album, Nestabling Heart Circle in Black Rhinestones, Nestabling Fancy Tags in Black Rhinestones,  and Butterfly Bling.

WOZ- Kim Kendell

The black bling looks so amazing with the Oz papers. You could use this album to journal, add photos or just display. We know there are a lot of Wizard of Oz fans out there!
