Journey Book Planning Inspiration from our Creative Team

Our Creative Team uses their Journey Books in a variety of way from memory keeping to planning to bullet journaling. Here’s some examples of what they were up to with them last month!

First up is Kristal – using hers to document quotes that caught her attention. She broke her Journey Book into 8 blocks using one for each day and one to decorate.

Kristal is using our Creative Journaling Stickers along with Washi Tape and some Stargazer Stickers on this spread!
Kristal keeps her approach similar from week to week – so she knows right where to start! Then she fills in the details with Creative Journaling Stickers and Washi Tape!
Kristal makes this look so fun and easy and yet so very creative!

Next up we have Jenny who uses hers for planning and habit tracking!

Jenny manages to get a lot of stickers on there in combination with her drawing and writing.

This before the pen spread from Jenny has so many fun details. How about how she incorporated that pocket sticker!?!
Just like Kristal, you can see that Jenny keeps a similar format in hers. You can definitely see that she loves color and uses stickers with lots of color in them!

Now let’s take a look at Liz and how she is using hers!

Liz uses hers for a traditional planner but has blocks similar to what we saw from Kristal!
For this summery spread, Liz didn’t draw in blocks but there’s still a great separation between days thanks to the fun stickers she used!

Washi Tape Anyone?

Although we already highlighted some spreads from Jenny – we wanted to show you how she keeps track of her Washi Tape! This one has her Harry Potter Washi!
And this one showcases some of her other favorites! We agree with her! Give us all the Washi!

Makes You Happy Foil Paper encouragement cards!

Hi Lisa here to share with you some quick and easy encouragement cards I made to keep in my purse using the Makes You Happy foiled paper from the Colorwashed collection. These cards do not open and on the back I like to add a piece of graph paper so I can hand write a personal note to the recipient. Here are my cards:

Supplies Used: Makes You Happy Foil Paper; Butterflies washi tape; Butterflies faux enamel stickers; Succulent Faux enamel stickers; Summer fun washi tape set, butterflies washi tape set; Llama washi tape set

These cut apart cards make even the novice paper crafter look like a pro!! You can go SUPER simple with these cards like I did with this one. This card was just cut apart from the larger paper sheet and then I added a strip of washi tape from the Butterflies washi tape set along the side of the card. To dress it up even more and to bring out the gold foil on the word “happy” I added an offset faux enamel butterfly sticker! This fun quote is sure to encourage someone and brighten their day!!

On my next card I stepped it up a bit and added a stamped quote on a piece of graph paper mounted on card stock. I then embellished my stamped quote by adding a doily under the top left corner of the quote. I added two faux enamel butterflies to this card of different sizes and at opposite corners to add visual interest and offset the larger doily. Nothing adds a finished look more easily then washi tape. I added two strips of washi tape from the butterflies washi tape set & the Llama washi tape set to balance out the card. This shows you how well the washi tape from different collections works so well together!!

The next card definitely took more time and was a bit more complex. For this card I layered two sizes of cards from the Makes You Happy foiled paper. I hand wrote my scripture and offset it using washi tape from the Summer fun washi tape set. I then added 2 adorable succulent faux enamel stickers to balance out my card and give it lots of sparkle and shine!

I hope these cards give you an idea of how you can make something look gorgeous with just a little bit of work. Remember many of the amazing Paper House products coordinate very well together to give your projects that stunning look of a a pro crafter who spent hours creating a special project! Why not create a few of these fun cards to keep on hand when your friends need a little pick me up??!!

Memory Keeping in a Planner!

Natalie here with you today! I’m using my new Mommy Lhey planner to memory keep with photos!

Here’s the month of July at a glance with small photos covering some days, combined with patterned paper and stickers.

I used the Summer planner sticker kit to add some festive goodness to my Independence day/week spread! I printed my photos 6×1.75ish to fit in the daily blanks.

For the days without photos, I journal or use patterned paper and stickers. This is a great way to use up those 6×6 paper pads, they’re the perfect size to slice into the daily columns.

I have started ensuring that I take photos that will easily be cropped into this size! It’s a fun, visual reminder of our everyday life that otherwise wouldn’t make it into the scrapbook.

The Mommy Lhey planner has some fabulous stickers in the back, to include months for easy tabbing.

I kept some of the spreads simple, but adding a few of the Lhey labels and stickers help add interest.

I busted into the Tropical June Sticker kit for this spread – I love some of the clear stickers!

Using stamps in the same color scheme is a good way to add subtle uniqueness to your spreads.

Lastly, I’ll leave you with my August monthly spread! I love how colorful it turned out. These planners lend so well to almost any color scheme you’d like!

Using die cuts is another way to create some unique spreads in your memory planner. I hope I’ve inspired you to use your planner in a different way today!

Harry Potter Card and Matching Envelope

Hello! Samantha here with you. In case you didn’t know, I am a full on lover of all things Harry Potter. However, even if you’re not a crazy fan like me, you probably have someone in your life who is. Today I’m sharing a Harry Potter card and matching envelope that you can create for that HP fan in your life.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope Small

Supplies: Harry Potter™ Gryffindor Tags Foil Paper, Harry Potter™ Hogwarts at Night Foil Paper, Harry Potter™ Chibi Faux Enamel Stickers, Harry Potter™ Planner Stickers, Black Card Stock, Gold Card Stock, Dimensional Adhesive

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-004 Small

I really wanted these cute Chibi stickers to take front and center, so I framed them with the Harry Potter™ Gryffindor Tags Foil Paper and some gold card stock. It’s hard to do these awesome faux enamel stickers justice in a photo, but (as I hope you can see) these stickers are framed in gorgeous shiny gold. There are so many cute Harry Potter Chibi stickers that you could easily customize your card for the recipient by switching out the characters I chose for your recipients favorite characters.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-003 Small

I used Harry Potter™ Hogwarts at Night Foil Paper for my background and layered it all on a black card stock base. I left a greeting off the outside of the card. This lends to the clean appearance and allows me to customize the greeting on the inside of the card to match the occasion. The final size of my Harry Potter card measures 6″ long by 3″ tall.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-001 Small

To complete this set, I created a matching envelope for the card. You can send fun patterned paper envelopes like this through the mail as long as the address is clear. I used the Harry Potter™ Planner Stickers to create space for both send to and return address.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-002 Small

This Harry Potter card and matching envelope may not be your Hogwarts letter, but it still should be a pretty fun piece of mail to receive!

DINO-MITE Composition Notebook

Hey everyone, so altered things is another one of my favs to do.  With it being back to school time you can usually get a good deal on composition notebooks so I grabbed one with a project in mind.  My grandson is a dinosaur freak….he knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs (he is 9 and can talk about dinosaurs for the entire day lol)

So i took a plain composition notebook and altered it for him to write in.  I started with the notebook, these awesome dinosaur stickers, adhesive sheets, and the tree bark paper.

SONY DSC

So first I simply cut the paper to fit the cover of the notebook.  I did cut it slightly bigger so I didn’t have to worry about putting it on the adhesive straight.  Next I placed the adhesive sheet on the cover of the notebook.

SONY DSC

I then puller them up by the tab (the adhesive will stay on the album) and placed the pattern paper on the cover.  Next I opened the notebook and cut the extra off with my blade and i used a file just on the corners.

SONY DSC

Now it was time to make it his by adding the dinosaur stickers and his name on the book.  I added a little keepsake envelope into the inside for the extra dino stickers I didn’t use so he can place them anywhere in the notebook.I’m sure he will write all kings of things about dinosaurs in this book!

Supplies used:

Tree Bark Single-Sided Paper

Dinosaur Shaped Sticker Pack

Thanks for stopping by the blog today….hope your next creation is DINO-MITE!!

Explore More Mini Album

Hey everyone, Stacy here to share with you a fun mini album I created using the Paper House outdoor papers and of course the fun stickers & clips that go along with it!

So lets start with the cover…I love to use the cut apart sheets as embellies for my albums..and the clip and sticks were such a fun way to dress it up.  I tied a little ribbon on the side.

SONY DSC

Ok now we can dive inside….It’s not secret I love mini albums and pockets and flaps so…I created this mini album with some chipboard I had in my stash, i made some smaller pages to alternate between the bigger pages.  We have a couple places for photo mats, journaling inserts and some fun stickers.

SONY DSC

Some of the cut a parts I simply punched holes in to make them small additions pages within the album.

SONY DSC

Ok so my next page…i’m getting into planners and the journey books, so I took a page out of a jouney book to create a custom mini album page.  I used the stickers from The Great Outdoors planner set, and of course added a clip at the top.

SONY DSC

Next another pocket with the slide out photo mat….the crazy thing is I don’t even camp but this line was so fun to work with!

Puppy Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. We got a new puppy this summer, and he’s just so darn cute that I can’t help but take his picture…and now I’ve got to scrap those photos. Whether your K9 friend is a new puppy or just a puppy at heart, I hope my puppy layout makes you want to scrap your dog too!

New Puppy Layout Small

Supplies: You Had Me at Woof 3D Sticker, Dog Micro Sticker, Great Outdoors Into the woods Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Better When Camping Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Tags Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Hunting Tags Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Washi Tape Set, Halloween Washi Tape Set

New Puppy Layout-002 Small

Since Paper House doesn’t have a specific pet collection, I started with some fun dog themed stickers. I wanted a mix of textures and sizes, so I chose the You Had Me at Woof 3D Stickers and the Life Organized Dog Micro Stickers. I print my photos at home, so I printed 3 1/2″ x 5″ photos on 4″ x 6″ photo paper. I trimmed the photos down to give them a bit of a “Polaroid” look. Then, I used the Dog Micro Stickers to create a fun detail under the photos on the white border.

New Puppy Layout-003 small

After I had my puppy stickers picked out, I raided my stash of Paper House collections for paper that matched. I decided that paper from the Great Outdoors collection coordinated with the stickers. I wanted a few more embellishments, so I reached for my Washi. Of course, I used the camo Washi from the Great Outdoors Washi Tape Set, but I also found that the orange and white Washi from Halloween Washi Tape Set was a great match, too! I also love that both Washi tapes have a metallic detail to them.

New Puppy Layout-001 Small

This puppy layout is the first of many, many dog layouts in my future. I can’t wait to see how else I can use Paper House to capture these memories.

Bible Journaling with Faux Enamel Stickers

Hi it’s Lisa here today to share with you one of my favorite things to use in my journaling bible…faux enamel stickers! These stickers have such shine and glam up any project! They also add dimension to your projects, but without all the bulk! This is great not only for bible journaling but for many other types of creative projects! When I was studying this verse I immediately thought of the beautiful Succulent faux enamel stickers.

Supplies Used: Succulent Faux Enamel stickers; Summer Fun washi tape; Panda 3D stickers (heart); butterflies faux enamel stickers

I tend to like to journal only in the margins provided for me so I don’t like to use any stickers that are to large. The adorable glitter heart is from the 3D panda sticker set & is the perfect size to act as a lovely accent for my cactus. I love using the thin washi tape to break up my white space and separate my handwritten notes from the title I created using letter stickers. Here is a close up of the lovely gold foiled washi tape that is from the Summer fun washi tape collection, I use this washi tape a lot!

In this picture you can also see the lovely gold faux enamel butterfly sticker. I love how most of the sticker sets have stickers of varying sizes so you are able to have extra tiny ones to add in those little white spaces that just need a bit of sparkle or shine!! The micro stickers are also perfect for these tiny accents but this faux enamel butterfly sticker kept with the faux enamel look that the succulent stickers gave my page.

I would love to have you follow me on Instagram – I’m lisantexas there! I share a lot of different paper projects using the amazing Paper House stickers and other products there! You can also use my code PH19LISA to get 20% off your next sticker order!! Happy creating!

My First Planner Go….I’m HOOKED

I’m excited to share with you my first time ever playing with planner goodies……i’m so hooked!!!!  I’m going to share my month of August with you.

SONY DSC

 

I’m using the fun PaperHouse/ML planner.   The first week I would say was just basic.  I used some washi tape, stickers, and sticky notes.

 Week two I experimented a little more.  I did a little doodling around the outside and adding some stamping in the corners.

SONY DSC

I have decided that I like to put washi tape across the center of it to divide my day into morning and afternoon….not sure how others are doing it but that is the way i’m rolling right now (that may change)  I have also started writing positive vibes at the bottom to get me through the week!!

SONY DSC

I got a stash of Paper House goodies and picked out these fun little clips….love that added little embellie to my planner.

Well that is month one of my planner in the books….i’m super excited to get some planner time in to start on September!

Marbelous Birthday Cards

Hello! Samantha here, and today I have something a little bit different for you. I have a set of 3 Marbelous birthday cards. I wanted to show you how many different options you have for card making with Paper House Stickers. All the cards use Marbelous paper as their base, they all use the same basic layout for the card, and they’re all even the same theme. However, by mixing and matching different types of stickers you get very different looks for each card.

Since I’m sharing 3 different cards today, I’ll share a photo of each individual card and list the supplies right afterwards.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Birthday 3D Stickers, Kawaii Hearts Faux Enamel Stickers

This is the most elegant of the cards. I chose a to use some of the Marbelous card stock that has gold foil to match the gold in the 3D sticker and faux enamel stickers.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Emoji Birthday 3D Sticker, Kawaii Not? Washi Tape, Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers, Kawaii Cupcakes Puffy Clips

This card is a bit more fun. I created texture by using a puffy clip for my focal point and a 3D sticker for my greeting. To create the border I paired a shiny silver rice paper with some cupcake washi tape.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Magical Faux Enamel Sticker,Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers

This last card is completely whimsical, as I made it with my soon to be 5 year old niece in mind. A little rainbow rice paper is the perfect starting point for some magical stickers. This card uses mostly flat stickers (I sneaked in a small enamel heart) to make it easy to mail, but the fun faux enamel sticker adds a special touch to the card.

There you have it; a trio of Marbelus birthday cards.
