Welcome to House of 3! Inspire. Create. Love. That’s what we are all about. To get started, let’s explore the site!
House Adornments: We offer unique Jewel Wall Art to adorn your house. Our Limited Edition designs consist of: Chandeliers, Frames & a Lamp. These re-positionable black vinyl stickers are fabulous for creating a beautiful world around you.
They are easy as 1,2,3.
1. Decide where to apply the Jewel Wall Art. Even though they are really sticky, they are also re-positionable. Try applying on walls (painted or wall paper surfaces are ok), glass, mirror, canvas, magnet boards, lockers, doors, cabinets… anywhere!
2. Remove the die cut design from the backer piece. Be careful: remove slowly and carefully. It may help to get an extra set of hands as you separate it from the backer.
3. Stick them up! The Jewel Wall Art works just like a sticker! Position grid lines starting at one point of the design, (like the top or bottom) and work your way to the opposite end to ensure that it’s laying flat and as desired. (That extra set of hands is good to have here too, as well as an extra set of eyes to be sure it’s straight!)
*Be patient. The designs are uniquely intricate and can be tricky to hold when preparing to apply to your surface. If it sticks to itself, just carefully pull it apart- it will release.
*Try not to get finger prints on the clear areas of the image. Hold on the black areas.
*After the Jewel Wall Art has been in place for an extended amount of time, the jewels can pop off during removal or normal use. We have provided extra jewels, and can be adhered in place. House of 3 does not guarantee the Jewel adhesion after application.

**Note: CLIP ART uses. If you would like to print out digital elements that are included in some of the Printable Kits, you can open up a Word Processing program, select a New Document, go to: INSERT & simply open up the JPG or PNG files (see below for explanation.) This will particularly be helpful in kits such as Hello Teacher that offers the PDF printable sheets of the cards, but the kids’ faces are offered in the JPG or PNG Digital Files. Just INSERT the designs, resize just as you would regular Clip Art.

Digital Warehouse: We have so much fun creating with these digital elements! They are perfect for photographers, bloggers, scrapbookers, mixed media artists, anyone!
House of 3 Digital kits are offered in various formats & Adobe Photoshop (PS), Adobe Photoshop Elements (PSE) or some other kind of Photo Editing Software is usually needed.
PNG files: These files are for clear or transparent items such as a die cut tag that you don’t want a background on. For instance, the House of 3 Frames are great to put on your blog or frame a photo. When you digitally open it up in PS you don’t want a white background or you won’t be able to see the photo, right? So, here’s your PNG to the rescue! Simply open up your photo & then drop the Frame onto it to frame your photo!
Our Quote Rub ons or tags are offered in PNG files as well. Each kit will tell you in the description what you are buying.
JPG files: This file is flattened file. Papers, cards or flat tags are offered in this file format. JPG files do not require PS or PSE, you can actually open them in Word or Acrobat. But, be careful to read the kit description carefully so you know what program you will need. Our patterned papers & books are offered in JPG files & are wonderful to print out as many times as you’d like. But, are also used for blogs, digital scrapbooking, & photography!
ABR brush files: These files are like digital *stamps*. You will need PS or PSE to access these files. See this tutorial on how to load & use the Brushes. You can
*stamp* them in various colors, layer, resize, & use on blogs, photos, or any digital project. Each ABR brush kit also has black PNG files in case you have a Software program that can’t support the ABR file extension. So you can open up the PNG files & use them, too! Our Swirls, Medallions, & frame edges are so versatile & fun!
***Note: Clip Art usage. You can still pull the digital PNG & JPG files into a normal Word Processing program if you’d like to print out images like the PDF Printable files. Some kits, like the Hello Teacher Kit, offers the PDF Printable files of the cards, but also offers a Digital Kit including different/single designs that you can use very easily! Treat it just like regular Clip Art. Open New Document>Insert> & select the images. Resize just as you would with Clip Art & you’re good to go!
