One in a Melon Layout for Paper House Productions

I'm so excited to share this layout! We were challenged this week at Paper House Productions to use at least three different types of stickers. I know it is January, but a girl can dream of summer, right?
So I pulled out the summer collections and noticed I had a lot of watermelon stickers. I knew I had a watermelon picture so I went from there. I found this watermelon cut file in my stash from Paper Issues. I cut the title from black cardstock and played around with all my watermelon supplies!
I used gesso on the background. Once it dried, I added some red paint mixed with water. Then I splattered some red and black paint. The watermelon at the bottom is made from two corner pockets for a planner. At the end of the day, I used puffy stickers, 3D stickers, cardstock stickers, flake stickers and 2" stickers.

Stargazer Layout for Paper House Productions

This week we are featuring the Stargazer line at Paper House Productions. This is a new line of paper and stickers and if you like purple - you will be thrilled! I love purple, so this was fun to use. Right away, I thought of space when I went through this collection. Our family visited the Kennedy Space Center a few years ago and of course I have yet to scrap all my pictures. This was the perfect collection to get a few more pictures in the album. I chose a picture of my daughter touching a moon rock and a picture of the Apollo 14 Kitty Hawk.
I had to use this gorgeous paper as my background. I also did a search through my cut files for anything with stars and came across this Paige Evans file. It is concentric stars so I had fun playing with them. I cut them from a double sided paper so some stars are the front of the paper and some are the back of the paper. The whiter portion of the center star is the background paper showing through. I embellished with faux enamel stickers and a pack of 3D space stickers. I was pretty happy with how the picture of the lunar module looks like it could be part of the sticker collection. I didn't want to write on the background as it was a little dark, so I used some planner stickers. My final touch was to outline the center star with washi tape.

Finley Layout for Sketches In Thyme

I have a cute baby layout this week at Sketches In Thyme. I have loved having my nephew around more often. Here he is playing with a toy my daughter used to play with. He really liked it.
Here is the sketch:
Trying to find 3 photos small enough to fit this sketch was a challenge so the tags are a bit bigger than I would like, but the animal cut-outs help to offset this. This was a really easy sketch to use so I encourage you to join us and play along!

Two sizes of circle punches for the tags

Marvelous Smile for Paper House Productions

Hello everyone! Here is my first layout of 2019! I made this for Paper House Productions and the assignment this week is to use a paper pad. It was hard to pick just one paper pad. I have so many favourites, but in the end, I wanted to back a cut file and the Color Washed Paper Pad lends itself nicely to this technique.
I cut the butterflies out using a cut file by Paige Evans in the Silhouette Store. I used a thick white cardstock. To back each butterfly, I pulled several papers from the paper pad. I traced one of the cut out butterflies and cut it leaving a bit of extra paper around the traced outline. I trimmed it until it fit nicely and then used it as my stencil to trace for all the other butterflies. Luckily, all the butterflies are the same size so I traced them all, cut them all and then adhered them all. I love how the background is mixed media, but doesn't require any of the work! It is a paper in the paper pad. The title is from the Marbleous collection but the banners are part of the cardstock stickers that come with the paper pad. I used Glue Dots to pop them a bit higher off the page since my other stickers are 3D and pop up as well.

Teacher Planner for Paper House Productions

Happy New Year! What better way to start the year than to set-up a new planner? I'm so happy to have a Paper House Productions Teacher Planner. In the past I've used a bigger book and didn't decorate but now I'm hooked. This smaller size will be nice to have out in my classroom where I don't have a lot of room. And I get to play with stickers - yay!
So this week is a little deceiving because there is no school so I'm not doing a whole lot! So I got to use lots of stickers!
