Paperhouse Production Giveaway: Scrapbook Paper and Stickers (closed)

Paperhouse Product Sticker and Paper Giveaway

This week I have two amazing giveaways to offer! The first is a multi-winner giveaway, one lucky big winner will get a 6″x6″ pack of art inspired scrapbook paper and two packs of hydrangea and leaf stickers. 6 additional winners will receive one strip of hydrangea and one strip of leaf stickers. On Thursday I will post my second giveaway of the week, an adorable tote from Etsy shop: eilquinn.

Scrapbook paper detailPaperhouse Productions is an online shop that specialized in most things paper and some things mangets, stickers, and home decor. Over the summer I was approached by them to try out some of their products, I readily agreed on one condition, they would send me enough items for me to giveaway to my readers. I awaited my box of goodies and was shocked at the size of it when it finally arrived. I opened it to find piles of products, enough for me to try and giveaway to a number of my readers.

I went for the art paper immediatly, flipping through quickly at first, then taking my time, admiring the patterns and designs the second time through. I love the abstract pages, with colors softly bleeding into each other as if watercolor was recently applied to a damp sheet of paper. In addition to these pages are more obviously art inspired pages, with images of paint blobs, messy palettes, and coated paint brushes printed on the pages.

As a collager, scrapbooker, and visual journaler I prefer to use more simply patterned paper in my pages, but I know these image printed pages are perfect for my students. I can imagine them flipping to these pages, instantly inspired by the paint covered paper, cutting it up, and incorporating it into their next visual journal page.

In other words, the vibrance and variety of pages in this paper pack will appeal to a variety of people and tastes.

Next out of the box were the leaf and hydrangea stickers. I picked these patterns because a: I like trees and often use them in my visual journal pages and b: my bridesmaids carried blue hydrangeas in my wedding, and they automatically appealed to me.

I love the realistic quality the stickers have, and the bright colors I was sure were Hydrangea Sticker Detailonly enhanced via photo and web editing. I was very pleased to find they looked just as good in person as they did on my computer screen. I opened my first pack, and peeled off a green leaf sticker and was instantly pleased with this product.

Rather than having a very sticker like white edge around the image, ruining a perfectly pretty leaf, this sticker has a clear edge. This lovely change makes it look even more realistic, and allows you to layer the stickers without having an unattractive white edge distracting you from the overall look. I picture these stickers as your not run of the mill two year old forehead sticker or middle schooler locker stickers. These stickers are meant for more artistic uses, such as scrapbooking and visual journaling. I will be sure to post a picture of my first creation using these amazing products!

Overall I am very pleased with Paperhouse Productions. They have quality products and a very easy to navigate website.

Paperhouse Productions Magnet Giveaway: Bacon and Sushi Magnets (closed)

Paperhouse Productions Magnets

I am very excited about my next summer giveaway because I get to pick 7 winners to win 2 prizes!! An online paper supply company, Paperhouse Productions, has generously sent me a giant box full of goodies to share with my readers, and for the rest of the summer I will be selecting multiple winners every time!

Paperhouse Productions is exactly what it sounds like, a paper supply company who offers a range of paper products, from themed stationery to scrapbook paper to stickers. In addition to their range of paper products they also offer an interesting collection of magnets.

You can browse their magnets by “type”, such as 3D, car magnets, or sets, or you can browse by “theme”, such as Elvis, animals, or food and drink. As a food enthusiast I immediately went for the food section and began browsing their selection. As soon as my eyes fell upon the bacon magnet I knew this was it.  Everyone knows bacon is one of the greatest foods in life and what better way to express my love for it than by proudly displaying it on my refrigerator?

The sushi magnet came to my attention shortly after I drooled over the bacon magnet, and I decided they would be nice compliments on my fridge. Nothing would look better than two greasy strips of bacon next to a nice clean, fresh looking sushi roll. I let Paperhouse Productions know which magnets I wanted, and eagerly awaited the shipment.

When it finally came I was surprised by the size of the box. I assumed when I put in my sample requests that I would get a few stickers, magnets, and packs of paper. What I actually got was very large quantities of them all! I am so excited for the opportunity to offer multiple prizes to multiple winners. In fact, they sent me so many magnets that I will be doing a second 7 winners 2 prize giveaway next month!

As soon as the box was opened I immediately went on the hunt for the magnets. As soon as I found them they were placed among our many save-the-date, batman, and 90’s cartoon magnets. I stepped back to admire our new additions, and was impressed to see they were a good size, fairly strong, and just as vivid and realistic as they looked online.

I loved the cut out style the magnets had, which gave them a more realistic quality. I was half expecting to get a rectangular magnet, with the picture printed on the center, but was pleasantly surprised when they came out looking exactly as they were advertised.

Paperhouse Productions is a very clean, easy to navigate online shop that I would definitely use again. I love the variety of ways you can shop their store, and the variety of products they offer. You can find more traditional themed items or something more eccentric, for those Elvis loving friends and family.

Although their more traditional magnets are nice, I personally think there is no better magnet to hold up all of our wedding invitations than a nice, classy strip of bacon…
