Hello, crafty friends, Giorgia here.

It's Off the Page Week on the Paper House blog! We'll be giving you a lot of inspiration to create home decor and other pretty stuff with Paper House's amazing products!

I tore paper to create texture. I simply LOVE this glittered New York paper.

In my projects, I love to use a combination of several different sticker varieties: puffy, 3D, cardstock, and SnapShots™. They add a ton of texture, shape, and dimension to capture the eye!

We <3 NYC

Posted on Jul 9, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Hello everyone, Irit here! There are a few places around the world that you either love or hate. New York is such a place for most of us. Some are fascinated by this huge, neverending city; some, like my husband, visited a couple of times and would never go back. For me, New York is the whole world! I love this city. I can go twice a year and still find new places to visit, food to try, or shops with unbelievable sales. I love the streets, the smells, and the lights of this unique city. So making a New York-themed project was great fun, and I think that with Paper House products it was a piece of cake—I hope that you enjoy it!

CHA 2015 Sneak Peek - ColorWays: Noir

Posted on Dec 30, 2014 3:57:49 PM

Hi there! Today is the day - the day that we're ready to show off our last and final pieces of our new ColorWays™ line - the Noir Collection. We can't wait to share all the details of what's in this gorgeous set!

Paper House 2015 Sneak Peeks - ColorWays™ Noir

Like we mentioned yesterday, the Noir Collection reminds us of the city... urban & sophisticated, with a little bit of grittiness. Noir embodies both the hustle and bustle of the day and the feel of lavish nightlife. We just love the photographs & patterns on the 12 double-sided papers included in this collection - the gorgeous macro of a white rose, the classic architecture of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the intricate ironworks of a metal gate. Papers like these are what makes our ColorWays™ collection stand out from the typical paper crafting collection.

Paper House 2015 Sneak Peek - ColorWays™: Noir

If you've hopped on the 'gold train' this year in your projects and layouts, you'll love that the metallic accent for the Noir Collection is gold. As one of the colors of the 2 Rub Ons designs, and as a metallic accent on the Puffy Sticker and on the accent pack - the gold really stands out on these embellys! And it works great with the sentiments on all of the stickers and accents! Even the handwritten fonts on these pieces have that gritty (but classy) urban feel!Paper House 2015 Sneak Peeks - ColorWays™ NoirThe Noir Accent Pack is full of stylish cards, frames and accents that look great when used with the papers and other embellishments of the collection. 42 pieces in each pack really make these sets a great value, and just look at all the gold on those diecuts, too!Paper House 2015 Sneak Peeks - ColorWays™ Noir

The ColorWays™ papers make great wall decór hung up just as is! You can trim them into different sizes for a variety in scale, which makes any room really visually interesting. Or you could even frame the papers for a gallery-style look!

Paper House 2015 Sneak Peeks - ColorWays™ Noir

If you'll be at CHA, stop by our booth (#2701) to see us and to experience the whole ColorWays™ line in person!

CHA 2015 Sneak Peek - ColorWays: Emerald

Posted on Dec 29, 2014 3:57:49 PM

Are you ready? Today is day #2 of our three-part, ColorWays Sneak Peek. And today, we're so excited to show you the Emerald Collection.

Paper House 2015 Sneak Peeks - ColorWays™ Emerald

As we designed these collections, it was amazing to see the personalities of the different colors unfold. Sapphire became bohemian and eclectic - having a sort of airy and mystical vibe to the patterns and designs. Emerald has a natural, organic and happy-go-lucky feel... earthy and growing and upbeat. And Noir? It reminds us of New York City... urban, sophisticated, a little gritty. Like being in noisy Manhattan during the day and then going out for classy martinis at night.

So below are the Emerald papers - 12 gorgous double-sided papers, all printed on a heavy stock with vibrant photography and really usable patterns. The borders papers and trim cards make great embellishments, too! And all of these open stock designs are being offered in a convenient paper kit, too!

Paper House 2015 Sneak Peek - ColorWays™: Emerald

Paper House 2015 Sneak Peek - ColorWays™: Emerald

We totally love the embellishments that go with the Emerald Collection. The metallic accent color for this line is Bronze, and has a richness and earthy-ness that really grounds the collection while still giving a bit of sparkle. There are 2 Rub-Ons packed full of phrases and sentiments that make it easy to use on any layout, pocket scrapbook page, or card! We even love these rub-ons for framed, home decór pieces - they look great on glass! And the Puffy Sticker adds a subtle dimension and lots of detail! Paper House 2015 Sneak Peeks - ColorWays™ Emerald And if you loved the sapphire accent pack you saw yesterday, you'll be excited to see the Emerald Accent Pack that coordinates perfectly with the Emerald Collection. Again it's a super value with 42 double-sided pieces in each set, including a nice mix of cards, frames and bits & pieces - and with bronze metallic accents to really make your projects shine!Paper House 2015 Sneak Peeks - ColorWays™ Emerald

It's just as easy to use the Emerald Collection on so many projects! We made this framed art piece by simply trimming a piece of the Emerald Bokeh paper down and framing it, then rubbing an uplifting sentiment on to the glass. If you want to have a little more flexibility, you can rub the sentiment directly down to the paper and then change them out more often!
