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!
