Easy Memory Keeping Spread in a Traveler’s Notebook

Caitlyn Storm Circle Hey, everyone! Caitlyn back up on the blog today! Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to put together a memory keeping spread in Paper House’s new Journey Books!

It’s no secret that I love memory keeping, but sometimes you want to work on projects on a smaller scale. I’m going to show you just how easy it is to put together a memory keeping spread in a traveler’s notebook!

The combination of Paper House Productions products really helps to tie in layouts. You can truly create beautiful spreads just using a few different pieces!

One of my biggest tips for putting together memory keeping spreads is to use big elements! The serene and beautiful colors from the Color Washed Paper Pad were perfect for this spread. Flipping through the paper pad, my eyes were drawn to the blue and white paper. The way the gold foil elements are set up on the page meant that it had just enough decoration that I didn’t need to touch it. The quotes on the right page also came from the Color Washed Paper Pad. The “best is yet to come” quote felt perfect for this spread.

Using both my Xyron tape runner and 3″ sticker maker, I was able to get these pieces in quick and easy. To finish off my page on the left, I used a rounded corner punch to better fit the page.

The best truly is yet to come, but these little moments are pretty close to being the all time best.

To finish off this spread, I included some hexagon diecuts from a different sheet of paper from the Color Washed Paper Pad. They helped to balance out this spread some more and add a fun little focal element.

I hope that this inspired you to try out a memory keeping spread in your own traveler’s notebook! I know I definitely enjoyed putting this together. See you all next time!

XOXO,
Caitlyn

Journey Notebook Insert: Book of the Month

Journey Notebook Insert: Book of the MonthWhen I saw the new Journey Books, I just knew that I had to use that for a new little reading project. I just recently joined the Book of the Month club and wanted a way to record my monthly selections and my thoughts on the books that I receive. This system was the perfect way to document those book selections in a quick and easy format and I just love the result.

 Journey Notebook Insert: Book of the Month

I knew that I wanted to create a repetitive format to my notebook insert that would allow me to quickly and easily document the book selection each month. Using the Life Organized planner stickers was just the perfect way to make that happen! For each page, I printed a 3×4 photo of that month’s book cover.

Then, I backed each one with a coordinating color of patterned paper from the 12″ Marbelous paper pad. This added a little pop of color and then I added a clear sticker from the months of the year labels sticker pack right on top of the photo for each month.

IMG_8089

Then, I added a star chart underneath from the Star Gazer sticker pack that I could use to easily give each book a rating. I then added a small circular sticker and quote in the bottom right corner of each page from another of the creative journaling sticker books.

I even added a little detail to the front cover of the insert and I just love how things are coming together.

I am really looking forward to having this quick and easy format to document my upcoming monthly Book of the Month club selections and thoughts. I would love it if you leave me a comment below with your ideas on how to use these inserts too!

Wonder Woman Planner 2018 by Laura C

The quality, colors and designs of the Paper House Life Organized stickers take your planning to a whole other level.  They are so cool with all the foil accents!

Wonder Woman close up #1

Here I’ve used a mix of the Karmabee washi, the Wonder Woman (TM) Life Organized stickers, and Sticky Pics Faux Enamels, and general stickers.  To make it your own….add some of your own doodles or drawings.

You can create a lot of interest by layering up the stickers like this pic in he bottom right corner….

Wonder Woman close up #2

All these different sticker types are made to go together so well they all look like they are from the same set!

Wonder Woman close up #3

You can make accessories for your planner using these Paper House Life Organized goodies too.   Using a basic gold paper clip from any office supply store, just make a couple of washi “flags” and then use the Faux Enamel stickers to add a fun element. And the best…..these stickers come with reverse images!  So you use the two reverse images together back to back…..no stickiness to worry about, the images line up perfectly to create the awesome clip to keep you even more organized!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are inspired to get yourself organized, using these great products from Paper House!  You can find all the Life Organized products and more in the store HERE.

Hello Paper House Productions fans!

The Unicorn traveler’s journal will be set-up for my daily journaling.  The white traveler’s journal will be set-up to write inspirational quotes that I like.  I have a YouTube process video for you today so I will keep this blog post short.  Here are some photos

Washi Tape Coasters & Giveaway Winner

Katie King CircleHi everyone! Two things that I can’t get enough of is washi tape and coasters! Washi tape is just one of those craft supplies that you can always use more of and making your own coasters, is just so much fun. On my own blog, I have made coaster sets from clay, wood, calendars, sequins, and more. However, I never thought of combining my love of washi tape with making coasters, until today!

Today, I am going to show you how to make your set of Washi Tape Coasters featuring the Stargazer Washi Tape Set! These washi tape coasters are so easy to make and are the perfect project to create if you are a beginning crafter. This is because the washi tape coasters can be made in 3 steps and only require a few craft supplies.

To make the coasters, I used Paper House Production washi tape! The great thing about using Paper House’s washi tape sets, is that you get both a wide and thin washi tape. Also, Paper House has a variety of washi tape that you can easily mix and match with each other. For this project, I chose to mix and match the Stargazer Washi Tape Set with the Wine Washi Tape Set, to get a galaxy look!

Washi Tape Coasters

To create your own Washi Tape Coasters featutring the Stargazer Washi Tape Set, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1:  Tear off pieces of washi tape and apply them to your coaster in the pattern that you desire. For my coasters, I used the wide purple tape in the Stargazer Washi Tape Set and the thin gold tape in the Wine Washi Tape Set.

Once you have covered your coaster, trim around the edges to remove the extra washi tape.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab a paint pen that matches your washi tape (I used gold) and paint the edges of your coasters. Once the edges of your coasters have been painted, set them aside to dry.

Step 3

Step 3: When your coasters’ edges have dried, grab some Mod Podge (I used Glossy) and paint a layer over each of your coasters. Adding a layer of Mod Podge will seal in the washi tape and add a protective top coat to your coasters.

Once your coasters have dried, you are now ready to use them!

I loved the galaxy look of these coasters!

One thing I wanted to mention, is that if you don’t want to use Mod Podge to seal in your coasters, you could also use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. I have used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on coasters before and love the final look. The only reason why I didn’t use it on this project, was because I wanted to create a super simple DIY that didn’t involve too much drying time. If you do use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, you will have to wait 24-hours for your coasters to dry.

Quick Ten Minute Planner Clips Using Washi Tape

Caitlyn Storm Circle

Hey, everyone! Hope you’ve had a wonderful start to spring so far! It’s Caitlyn back on the blog to show you how to make some really easy planner clips! Want to know how easy? They should take 10 minutes or less! Wow.

Planner clips are such an easy way to add personality to your planner. Those within the traveler’s notebook community truly take their planner clip game to the max. Often times you’ll see photographs of just the top part of their notebook, showing off all of the beautiful clips they’ve collected. The best part of these particular clips is how different you can make these – just by using washi tape!

Planner clips using washi tape

washiplannerclips2

There are several steps to take to get to the point shown in the photograph above. The first step is to take thin cardboard, like from a cereal box. Once you have your chosen material, you can start to create your diecuts. Place strips of washi on your material in any order that you would like.

Depending on how you’re cutting your diecut, these next few steps will change. For this particular project, I used a stamp and diecut set. I stamped my design first and then moved along to cutting the diecut. It’s very important to line your diecut up with the stamp. If you’re not using a stamp you can proceed to just cutting the diecut.

Planner clips using washi tape

Now we can start assembling your clips. Take one of your die cut pieces and lay it face down, blank side up. Use your Xyron tape runner to apply adhesive to the bottom portion of your die cut. Then place your paper clip down on the adhesive.

washiplannerclips4

Instead of using the tape runner for the other half of the clip, I used my Xyron Sticker Maker. Using Xyron’s Sticker Maker machine allows me to add adhesive to pieces quickly and accurately. To add adhesive place your element into the machine, keeping the design side up. Then you will pull the adhesive paper on the other side to help guide the object through the machine. The Sticker Maker helps you make sure that you have adhesive on the full design. This helps to create a nice seal on your two diecut pieces, making sure that your paperclip will stay in place.

Planner clips using washi tape

In this photo you can see the first clip completed. I very carefully matched the shape to the second diecut and then pressed the two pieces together, creating a sandwich. I then repeated this process two more times to put together the other two clips.

Now you should have your completed planner clips! The total time from start to finish each clip was around 10 minutes, making this particular project not only easy, but fast.

I hope you all enjoyed this super easy project! I hope you all start to create your own planner clips to add to your planners.

XOXO,
Caitlyn

Paper House Productions & SpiegelMom Scraps Blog Hop & Giveaway – Day 4

PHP_spiegelmom-Co-Hop2018-banner (1)

Welcome to the Color Me Happy Blog Hop!  We’re pairing up with SpiegelMom Scraps all week long for some colorful projects showcasing out collections and their sequins!  We’ve got a great giveaway so be sure to stick around to the end of the post to get more details!

Daisie Hansen Circle

Hi everyone! I created this layout using the Marbleous paper pack and the coordinating card stock stickers. This collection is just gorgeous! The colors are stunning and the gold foiling really add the perfect touch!

I also used the stunning Make My Heart Sing sequin mix from SpiegelMom Scraps. They add just the perfect amount of sparkle and texture to the page!

 

Caitlyn Storm Circle

Anytime I get to create a project for my planner I get really excited. The products over at Spieglmom Scraps makes planner projects even easier to create! All you need is a vision and an idea to make it happen. A little help from some sequins doesn’t help, either!

Here are three super easy planner project DIY’s that you can make for your own planner!

spieglmom1

Project One: Planner Charm

spieglmom2

Planner charms are really fun to have! Not only are they decorative, but they allow you to have your personality and ideas shine! In order to put together a similar charm you’ll need a small glass bottle with a wide mouth.

Add some glitter, some Chocolate Cookies sequins, and a small element of your choice and you have the base to your charm! All you need to do to finish it off is add a chain and some additional elements you might want to include.

spieglmom3

To finish off my charm I added some ribbon and a key. You can easily add your own elements to create something all your own.

Project Two: Shaker Planner Clip

spieglmom6

The first time I ever made a shaker box was when I was 12. It was in a scrapbooking class with my mom. They were so fun to create (and still are!). I’m so happy that shakers have crossed over into the planner world as well! I knew that I needed to create a really cute shaker clip using the Easter Basket sequins.

spieglmom7

With the help of the Stargazer Faux Enamel stickers and both the Easter Basket and Morning Dew Drops sequins, I was able to create a beautiful clip!

Project Three: Planner Dashboard

spieglmom4

Dashboards can be utilized in multiple ways and adapted to different styles of planner. You can create them for regular spiral bound planners, for traveler’s notebooks, or any planner that you can think of! All you need is some plastic, some sequins, and something to seal your shaker.

When I saw the Mystical Mermaids Faux Enamel Stickers I knew I needed to include them in my dashboard! My original vision for this was a lot simpler, but they needed to be included! The Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad had some great quotes included in the pack! By utilizing some of the pre-made pieces that were the perfect size for a dashboard, I was able to layer everything together to put this together! To help bring my vision to life, I pulled some of the smaller blue and purple sequins from the Rainbow Bright sequin set and added in the rest of my Morning Dew Drops. Don’t they look like bubbles?

spieglmom5

The opposite side of the dashboard was an absolute no brainer! I didn’t add sequins to this side as I wanted the quote to be the highlight.

The washi edging made punching the holes for my planner a breeze. Plastic often breaks certain hole punches, so I always recommend adding a thinner layer such as washi to punch through. The Stargazer Washi Tape Set looked great with this dashboard, so that was an added bonus!

I hope you enjoyed these little projects I put together for you! See you all in my next post.

XOXO,
Caitlyn
