2009 Scrapbook Catalog

When we said soon in the last post, we meant soon! As our 2009 Scrapbook Catalog is hitting the presses, we thought we'd give you an online sneak peek so you can see all the rest of what we've been busy creating! Feel free to view the catalog in its entirety or browse section by section.

We're still planning on getting our newest product up on our website by the end of the week, however as it did last week, the weather may pose another threat. Mother Nature is sending more snow our way, with warnings and closings happening already! So if you haven't yet seen our "Winter Fun" line of scrapbooking products, you should check it out here!

Craft + Tech = Cool!

Well up until last week, we could honestly say that we'd never crafted a web page before! So check it out: The convergence of crafting and technology! We created this "scrapped likeness" of the Paper House Blog as a promo to be included in our brand new 2009 Scrapbook Catalog (coming very, very soon!)

By layering grey, white & blue pieces of paper onto our square, white textured background, we created the browser window: complete with a chipboard scrollbar and  bling-ed out close, min and max buttons! Then we printed out the blog header and tiny images of our papers for our "signature" house.  We popped the hand-written side bars, header, and house up with pop dots and there you have it: the perfect union between geek and creativity!

Now we wonder, have you ever crafted anything tech-y like this? If so (and we know we can't be the only ones!), leave a comment here about what you made or even better, a link to your project!

Christmas Ornaments

Wow, we've been busy here at Paper House! Since Gretchen posed the challenge of creating holiday ornaments to us, everyone has been in the crafty spirit! Today we'd like to share this festive trio of ornaments, created for us by our wonderful Pat. As Pat shows us, Paper House mini cut-outs work great as an ornament base, being just the right size and already available in a number of holiday icons!

For the Red Ornament, Pat used stickers from our Christmas Cardstock Sticker (STCX-0048E) and applied them to the front of a Red Ornament Mini Cut-Out (DCM-0276B). We just love how she overlaid the holly stickers on top of each other, lifting the upper one off with a pop dot to give a bit of dimension! Silver, Gold and Xmas Red Stickle's by Ranger and a bit of ribbon complete the look. Pat also used mini cut-outs for gold and blue ornaments in the background. By gluing two cut-outs back to back, twice, and cutting a slit on each to attach them together, she made great three-dimensional ornaments quickly and easily! 

Pat and the rest of us have been steadily filling our tree, so check back soon for more posts to highlight all of the other great ornaments and holiday decorations we're making!

Winter Fun!

Happy December, Everyone! We hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, shared with family and friends. For those of you who love snow, it fell last weekend across New York State! To celebrate, Roni created and shared with us this beautiful layout of her daughter playing in the fluffy white stuff. We love the photos she used; especially the perspective of how tiny her daughter looks next to the giant pine tree in the large photo! Always remember, you don't need to use your most recent pictures to scrap. All of us have pictures and memories tucked away that we haven't preserved yet! To make this chilly layout, Roni used:

P-0145E Red Barn Wood Paper
Miscellaneous Chipboard Pieces

On another seasonal note, Gretchen gave all of us Paper House people a great challenge last week: to create Holiday Ornaments from Paper House papers, stickers, and mini cut-outs to decorate our office Christmas tree! All of us, from customer service to sales to the warehouse, will be designers this month! And we'll be showcasing some of our creations right on the blog, so be sure to check back throughout the December to see what we're making!

It's so nice to sit back and admire the holiday decorations you've so creatively crafted: we're looking forward to having a glorious tree this year! If you're decking the halls with Paper House this season, just post a comment with a link to your projects this month. We'd love to see them! One randomly selected winner will be drawn December 22, 2008 at 6PM to receive a holiday gift of Paper House goodies. Good luck, and get crafting!

Last Chance!

Sometimes we have to say goodbye to things we love. Although it breaks our hearts, we're saying goodbye to several of our cut-out cards, magnets, stickers, and scrapbooking papers in order to make room for the new, fun, and iconic products we're creating. So now's the time to get these beloved icons before they're gone forever. To see the complete lists of products we're letting go, check out the pdfs below or visit our website today.

Retailers, don't wait - they'll soon be gone! Place your order today and receive free shipping on these great items through the end of the year. And if you're not a retailer but just love our products, visit our website to find a store near you!

Football Layout

Now that High School Football season is nearing an end, this is a perfect time to use all the photos you've taken of your favorite teams' games! We just love using the Football paper as a background, edged with Distress Grass paper to add a little contrast. Since our team player is a super star, we trimmed the stars out of the Football Helmet paper to add a bit of detail, and accessorized the page with Cardstock & Twill football stickers and leftover chipboard pieces.


Creating an easy, fun layout is simple with our themed football products. We've got everything you need to preserve your game-time memories for seasons to come!

Commemorate the 2008 Election

Sondra just shared with us the page she scrapped to commemorate the memorable and history-making U.S. Presidential election held last week. We love how she used the Freedom Flag paper as a backdrop for her page, and the chipboard frames and tags to journal each candidates' name. To add a bit of pizazz, Sondra also used a glitter gel pen to accent the stars at the top and to date the page. On this layout, Sondra used the following Paper House Products:

P-0211 Freedom Flag Paper
DCCB-0011 Washington DC Chipboard
STCX-0027 Washington DC Cardstock Sticker

As you can see, our Washington DC collection doesn't have to be used exclusively for travel - these products can be used on any patriotic-themed page! To see our full line of Washington DC products, check out our website today. And don't forget to scrap your own 2008 Commemorate Election page! Thanks, Sondra, for such a great idea!

Fall Layout

It's that time of the year again! When all the leaves start falling from the trees, you're bound to get some great photos of the little ones playing and jumping in Autumn's giant piles! Here's a great layout we made of such a cute little guy having so much fun. The photographic Mini Cut-Out leaves scattered across the page look as though the wind just blew them down! For the title, we typed the word "Fall" on the computer and printed it onto a piece of scrapbook paper cut to 8.5 x 11", and then just trimmed the letters out with a craft knife.

We'd love to see some of the layouts you've made for Fall using Paper House products! If you've got a project you'd like to share, post a link to it in the comments for this post before November 26, 6pm EST. We'll pick one lucky winner and and send you a bundle of fall and winter goodies for your scrapping pleasure!

P-0146 Pine Porch Paper
P-0143 Green Barn Wood Paper
P-0145 Red Barn Wood Paper
DCM-0069 Green Leaf Mini Cut-Out

New Blog Banner

So, our awesome designer/art-director Tim created this fabulous new blog header for us! Yay!

We hope to change our banner out seasonally and show you some more awesome digital work. Please feel free to leave us a comment and let us know what you think :)

Oh, and results from last month's poll are in! The question was: What scrapbooking themes would you like to see Paper House make more of?

and the answer was... drum roll please!.....

Split 50 / 50 down the middle between Holidays and Family Fun! We always take your opinions to heart, so look forward to our CHA '09 introduction to see just what we've done!

School Days Tags

We're so lucky to have such talented people here at Paper House! Sondra, of our awesome sales team, made these fabulous tags this week and was nice enough to share them! These would be perfect attached to a lunch box or tucked into a backpack to remind your star student how much they're loved!

The ribbon at the top makes a great fancy accent, and you could even use glitter and rhinestones to bling these tags up even more!

Impressions Papers

We're excited to announce that we have just reduced the price on our line of Impressions Papers.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2008

Just an update: Sunday, October 19th 2008, the Paper House team participated in their Third Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Albany NY.

Thanks to contributions from our friends, families, and associates, we raised a total of over $1500.00 that Paper House has generously offered to match! This is our largest total yet, and we're so happy to be able to generate awareness and funds for such a great cause!

All Occasion "Discover" Card

If you're not quite sure how to use our travel products besides on themed pages or projects, well then here's a card for you! We've combined our great Explore paper with Canvas Quotes and Chipboard to create this neutral all-occasion card that proclaims, "Enjoy the Journey." Distressing and inks work great to give this card an aged and nostalgic feeling!

P-0269 Explore Paper
STFT-0011E Travel Adventure Canvas Quotes
DCCB-0010E Paris Chipboard

Black Cardstock
Gold Ribbon
Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger (Tea Dye, Old Paper, and Black Soot)
Ranger's Gold Embossing Powder, Inkssentials Black Embossing Pen, and Heat Gun
Ranger's Diamond Stickle's Glitter

  1. Trim black cardstock to 6.5 x 10" and fold in half to make card base (5 x 6.5" card).
  2. Cut a piece of the Explore Paper just smaller than the front of the card. We used the lower left corner to include the word "Discover."
  3. Distress the edges of the Explore piece and then tear in half horizontally at a slight angle. Ink all sides of both pieces using Tea Dye and Old Paper Distress Inks. Use the Black Soot ink only on the outside edges.
  4. Adhere both pieces of your distressed Explore Paper to the front of your card, positioning so that both pieces overlap just slightly and you can see the torn edge clearly. You should have a slight black border around the card.
  5. Ink the long travel Quote sticker from the Canvas Quotes and distress the edges. Mount to a scrap of black cardstock, trim around so there is a border, and adhere to the bottom center of the card, about 1/4" from the bottom.
  6. Using the black Inkssentials embossing pen, color in the word "Discover" on the Explore Paper, pour on gold embossing powder and shake off excess. Heat with heat gun until powder melts and becomes shiny.
  7. Ink the "Enjoy the Journey" sticker from the Travel Adventures canvas quotes and place in the upper right, between the corner and the swirly "D" of Discover.
  8. Glue the Chipboard pieces in place, positioning the Eiffel Tower piece between the two twill stickers and using the Fleur-De-Lis' as accents. Use a bit of Ranger's Diamond Stickles on the lower Fleur-De-Lis if desired.
  9. Tie a length of shimmery gold ribbon along the top hinge of the card, sit back, and admire! :)

Our travel line doesn't have to be used just for your vacation photos! Check back soon to see other fun, everyday projects that can be made using our travel papers, stickers, mini cut-outs and more! To see our full line of travel products, just visit the Travel Theme section of our website!

  4. Adhere the long black cats sticker from the Canvas Quotes along the bottom of the card, about 1/4" from the bottom and centered.
  5. Place the skull sticker from the Trick or Treat cardstock at the bottom right corner of the pumpkins twill.
  6. Adhere chipboard brackets to either side of the black cats twill sticker, lining up the bottom of the chipboard piece to the bottom of the twill sticker.

  1. Trim white cardstock to 6.5 x 10" and fold in half to make card base (5 x 6.5").
  2. Mount a piece of the Spider Shadow paper to the front of the card (we used the bottom right corner to include the spider). Trim off excess.
  3. Place the Ghost sticker from the cardstock in the middle of the card.
  4. Glue the Witch's Hat mini cut-out to the top of the Jack O' Lantern mini cut-out. Adhere to left side of card with pop dots, overlapping the ghost slightly and letting a bit of the cut-outs hang over the edge of the card.

So stop by often; we're planning some great give-aways this fall and plenty of previews and projects to keep you scrappin' happy!
