SNEAK PEEK: LIFE ORGANIZED DAY 3

Happy Friday, Paper House fans! Today we’re showing off our last two Life Organized planners, “Everyday Moments” and “Always and Forever.” Just like the others, these are 18-month planners that are undated so you can start them at any time. Each cover features foil, there are 18 beautiful tabbed dividers throughout, and three perfectly coordinating sticker sheets are included.

The “Everyday Moments” planner can be your place to write down all of the little things that make up your daily life. Record busy schedules, special events, and to-do lists alongside the planner’s fun florals and eclectic patterns. Gold foil accented stickers will add a special touch to whatever you write, whether it’s day-to-day information or memory planning.

Today’s second planner is “Always and Forever.” Planning a wedding is a major undertaking, and this planner will help keep all of the details organized. Wedding-specific stickers are included both as decorative elements and to help with the planning process by calling out events and milestones. There are even countdown stickers so you can remind yourself exactly how much time there is until the big day!

This concludes our Life Organized planner sneak peeks. We hope you’ve seen a design that will inspire you to plan! Next week, we’ll reveal all of our new planner stickers and labels. There are designs that coordinate with our planner themes, as well as some fun extras! Stay tuned!

SNEAK PEEK: LIFE ORGANIZED DAY 2

Hi everyone! We’re back today to reveal the next two Life Organized planner designs! Like yesterday’s planners, these are undated with space for 18 months, feature beautiful foil on the cover and coordinating sticker sheets, and have vibrant tabbed dividers to separate the months.

Today’s first planner theme is “Live Bold.” It has a bright, nature-filled, boho vibe that will inspire you to tackle your to-do list! Gold foil decorates the cover and stickers, which include things like beautiful florals, fun borders, encouraging sentiments, and lots of everyday icons and reminders.

The next planner we’re revealing is the “Adventure Awaits” theme. Filled with scenery from around the world, maps, and globe-trotting sentiments, it will make you want to pack your bags and take a trip! The cover features a striking sunset with a silver foil map overlay. The silver continues onto the sticker sheets, which have lots of icons, travel-related and otherwise, that perfectly coordinate and help you plan your life.

Stay tuned… tomorrow, we’re introducing the last pair of Life Organized planners, and next week, we’ll have some fun stickers and labels that continue to add to these themes!

Favorite Paper House Product: That’s a question that doesn’t have just one answer. There hasn’t been too many lines that I didn’t love. There are so many themed collections, fabulous color kits and amazing accents that you can create just about anything using the products in their amazing lines.
Paper Crafting Tool you can’t be without:  It’s not just one so I’ll share my must have list: cutter, circle cutter, finger cutter knife, Sizzix die cleaner, bone folder, Tweezers, paper punch, awl tool and sew easy ink stitch roller … all a must in my tool bag for sure.
You’ll always find this on my projects: I am never consistent but overall accents could be: ribbon, bling, flowers, sew easy ink stitching, twine, stamps, stenciling in backgrounds.
3 Things that make you unique: I love to try new things even if just once to say I tried it. I am very flexible when creating and love a variety of projects and never do just one thing all the time. I love working with others and appreciate what they have to share by creating and inspiring everyone and hope I inspire them too.
Describe yourself in 50 words or less:
I have been scrapping almost 8 years. I am a wife, mother and grandma that loves being retired and now have time to scrap to my heart’s content. I love scrapbooking along with fun things it entails with online friends, forums and FB.  Other crafts I love also are needlepoint, sewing, knitting, crochet and taking lots of photos. Family and friends are the subjects of my scrapping along with nature, ancestry and vacation sites. I live with my mom while we are building our new home in Ontario for May occupancy. We are now in Florida  where I take my scrapping with me for the extended time.

Favorite Paper House Product: I love playing with embellishments so some of my favorites are the puffy stickers, 3D stickers, and the colored cork!
Paper Crafting Tool you can’t be without: Without adhesive you can’t do much so I’d say my ATG gun is a must.
You’ll always find this on my projects: I love my enamel dots and it’s a rare layout not to have them on it.
3 Things that make you unique: I had my two children 19 minutes short of exactly 4 years apart. I was married 27 years before I got an official proposal.  Both of my children worked for Walt Disney World over several years allowing our family to spend a lot of time there.
Describe yourself in 50 words or less:  I grew up in a very creative home so creativity has always been a part of my life. While I have a very artsy, creative side I’m also very analytical, a list maker, and number loving individual. Some may say that’s contradictory. I say it’s balance at it’s best.

Paper Crafting Tool you can’t be without: Scissors, they have so many uses from cutting, shaping, distressing; really an amazing tool!
You’ll always find this on my projects: Layers, distressing, mists
3 Things that make you unique: 1) I love to tackle new things, even if they are hard I make it my goal to figure it out  2) I am both creative and scientific, I come from a science and math background so all my projects have a little scientific or liner edge to them – i like random, but too random and it looks messy to me 3) I am a world traveler, I have lived in 3 countries and traveled to over 50 countries – I love to immerse myself into a culture and see what it is all about, especially the food
Describe yourself in 50 words or less:  I bring a fun, romantic, and sometimes funky feel to my projects.  I guess if you had to label my style it would be layered, romantic, shabby chic, mixed media, and pop art.  I have been called the Queen of Layers!!  I am a military wife, a stay at home mom (my children give me wonderful inspiration to work with), 2 boys and 2 girls.  I was a teacher (high school science) before I stayed at home, and I love to craft!!  My first love is my family, they mean everything to me.  My second love is crafts in all forms including scrapbook layouts, art journals, cards, mini albums, mixed media, altered items, home decor, and DIY.

SNEAK PEEK: LIFE ORGANIZED

Hey there! Here at Paper House, we’re SO excited to introduce you to our brand new line: Life Organized! Spanning gorgeous planners, exciting stickers, and fun labels, Life Organized has the tools you need to start getting your life in order!

Today, we’re highlighting two out of the six planner designs. Each Life Organized planner is an 18-month undated planner, so you can start with whichever month you’d like. They have beautiful foiled covers and 18 unique tabbed dashboards to divide your months. Included in the front of each planner, there are three foiled sticker sheets. They provide a coordinated way to label your months, decorate with sentiments and themed stickers, and have all of the functional icons, checklists, and arrows that are so helpful in planning out your life!

The first planner theme is “Embrace Today.” Its playful and bright tropical beach theme is sure to make you feel warm and sunny year-round! Featuring vibrant pink foil on the cover and sticker sheets, decorative elements include hibiscus flowers, flamingos, and flip-flops.

The second planner theme for today is  “Anchors Away.” With its nautical vibe, keeping organized will be smooth sailing! Beautiful gold foil accents perfectly complement seascapes, sailboats, anchors, and other sea-faring embellishments.
