Paper House Productions|Xyron Collaboration

Hello friends! I hope your all having a great day. I am very excited to be participating in this fun hop with PaperHouse Productions and Xyron. Both are amazing companies. I used the Xyron Tape Runner throughout my layout to adhere all of my paper.

Our theme for this hop is Family. I decided to scrap a couple of photos of my two boys and their cousins. They came over one night and were all playing Scrabble. The game didn’t last very long, lol. They started arguing about which words were considered words and which weren’t. I decided to break up the argument with a silly photo shoot.

I chose to use the Paper House Productions One Big Happy Family Collection. This collection is  perfect for capturing these moments. The colors really lend themselves to masculine or feminine layouts.

I kept my design pretty simple. I cut out big arrows which would point to my photos. I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen. I also added some simple layers behind my two photos.

I decided to place my tittle in the center of the page. I used a patterned paper strip that matched my wood grain background. I placed it going the opposite direction of the wood grain in the background. I used a combination of white letter stickers from the Discover USA Papercrafting kit and blue letter stickers from the Let Freedon Ring Washington DC Papercrafting Kit.

I then used my sewing machine and some orange thread and did a zig zag stitch through the whole tittle. I added some flower stickers to both ends and raised the whole piece up on dimentional foam. I also added some stitching at the top and bottom of the layout.

I could not wait to use my Xyron sticker maker, I punched out some circles to create banners underneath my tittle and bottom photo and I ran them all through the Xyron sticker maker. I love making my own stickers.

This layout was fun to create. Be sure to check out Paper House Productions and  Xyron for fun giveaways this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty

Hello friends! Today I have a special project to share with you. The Paper House Productions Design Team has teamed up with Scrapbook Adhesives for a fun collaboration. We are creating Travel Themed Projects. We received a bunch of awesome goodies from Scrapbook Adhesives to use.

I am scrapbooking a photo of my family and I on a road trip. We were driving from The Grand Canyon to Phoenix, AZ where were catching a flight to Utah. We were so squished inside our rental car with all of our luggage. We were laughing about it the whole way there, the ones in the back, however, weren’t laughing too much. Want to hear something else that was funny, we missed our flight, Lol. It wasn’t so funny at time but looking back now, we crack up about it. Thankfully, we were put on Stand-by and were able to catch the next flight a few hours later.

I decided to use the Discover USA Papercrafting Kit for this layout. I love the fun bright colors of this collection and the USA travel theme is perfect for this photo. I used the E-Z Runner Permanent Strips  to adhere everything that wasn’t a sticker. I also used the 3D Foam Squares to add dimension to some of the stickers.

I used all embellishments from the Discover USA Collection including the Discover USA Puffy Stickers that are included in the Papercrafting Kit as well as the Discover USA 3D Stickers. The only thing I added in from my stash was some green washi tape which I added underneath my tittle on both sides. I created a vertical design down the center of the page.

To add a few extra details I used the Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Hearts and added glitter in coordinating colors to them. These made the perfect embellishment to fill in a few areas on my page.

Hello friends! Welcome back to my blog. I am extremely excited to share my very first project for Paper House Productions. I am working with the beautiful One Big Happy Family Paper Crafting Kit. This was so much fun to create. This layout combines so many things that I love, a beautiful floral cut file, Shimmerz Paints, Hand stitching and a beautiful collection. It was perfect for scrapping this photo of me and my niece.
