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!
