Color Washed Gift Set

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

Hi there!  Laura here with you today sharing a project idea for a sweet gift for a friend, neighbor or just about anyone.  Good for a grad, or someone who just needs a pick me up, or thank you.  This is created with the Color Washed 12×12 Pad collection from Paper House.

This is a great journal set for someone to keep their goals, dreams or just random thoughts about what they are going through on a daily basis.

The gift box keeps the journal and any other memento the recipient would like, and is a reminder to keep a positive attitude….the Color Washed 12×12 pad is full of gorgeous papers in bright cheerful colors, along with journal boxes and border strips with positive uplifting messages!

The inside of the box is decorated too to keep those positive vibes coming…..

Next is the journal and gift card…

The sweet simple card was made using some of the scraps from creating the box, and also the stickers that are included in the Color Washed Pad….they look like gorgeous water-colored pieces of art.  You can keep the project simple and still make a bold beautiful statement.

The journal is just an inexpensive dollar store type notebook.  By adding the papers, stickers and a little ribbon, it turns into a pretty little journal better than most store bought journals.  If you want to add a little more pizazz, you can decorate inside the front cover (a little bonus inspiration!) and even add some of the small 2×2 squares that are also in the Color Washed pad to give little positive reminders throughout the journal.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure you stop by the Paper House website to take a look at all the 12×12 paper pads they have available.  They have a great selection, and with the stickers, journal cards, and gorgeous papers included you are ready to create multiple projects with just one paper pad!

Supplies Used: Paper House Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad; notebook, wooden box, enamel dots.

Memory Keeping Spread in the Free Spirit Planner

Caitlyn Storm CircleHello, again! It’s Caitlyn back on the blog today and I’m here to show you something a little bit different you can do with your planner.

Growing up, I was always surrounded by my mom scrapbooking. It was never something that I found interest in as a child, but I was always in awe of the scrapbooking layouts that she would create. While my mom and I were always creative together, scrapbooking was always the one thing that I avoided doing. She could ask me to do anything else, but scrapbooking? Forget about it! It’s funny how years later the tables have completely turned and I have slowly made my journey into scrapbooking, just in a different medium.

Memory keeping in my planner is one of my absolute favorite things to do. Sometimes I don’t want to actually plan and I get into a slump. In order to help combat those feelings, I memory keep! There are plenty of ways to create a hybrid layout with memory keeping and planning, but before I show you ways of doing that, I wanted to show you a memory keeping week.

With Valentine’s Day coming up so soon, I thought it would be fun to reminisce on my first Valentine’s with my fiancé. To put together this spread I utilized only five different sheets of paper in addition to the included stickers in the Be Happy Paper Pad. I used one full sheet for the main portion of this spread and then pulled select elements from the other sheets.

Using scrapbooking paper is such an easy way to decorate any of your planner spreads and makes a world of difference in memory keeping. You can use all the stickers in the world to decorate, but something as simplistic as paper can make a huge difference.

The Be Happy Paper Pad has plenty of different elements that work perfectly for journaling or even as photo backers. You’re sure to find something that will make your memory keeping spread pop and look beautiful!

Products Used: Free Spirit PlannerBe Happy 12″ Paper Pad

Check out my video to see how I put together this layout and see the thought process from start to finish. The way I envisioned this spread is different than the eventual outcome, but it came out a lot better than I planned! Sometimes the best thing in life truly aren’t planned and this memory keeping spread is proof of that.

Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to see you all next time.

XOXO,
Caitlyn

London-Calling Scrapbook Layout Destination Stickers by Maria

Maria Russell CircleHello my crafty friends!  Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you a scrapbook layout, showcasing the Discover London 3-D Sticker Pack and the London Calling 12″ Double-sided Scrapbook paper.  I love that there are endless possibilities to mix and match the coordinating travel sets, especially the Destination Stickers.  I really love the 3d stickers!

 

IMG_6677

I started out by printing my photos using my Canon Selphy photo printer.  I cut them to size for my layout.

I decided to use the London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper to match the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.  I cut a 6 x 12 black card stock to cover half of the scrapbook paper to have a plain base to showcase my photos and the sticker.

IMG_6678

I also used another black card stock to mat my Big Ben photograph and ground it a little so that it doesn’t look like it’s floating in the air.

IMG_6679

I used another red card stock to mat the photo of my daughter and I standing in Leicester  Square while it was snowing, and journaled a little of how the day was going, where we were, and the date.

IMG_6680

Here’s a close-up with the amazing Destination 3D sticker, and that England heart flag is super cute!  I also love the gold foil details on the Discover London sticker.

I thought it’s also appropriate to include the “Cheers” and the Red Tour Bus, also included in the Discover London 3D Sticker pack.

PHPLondon2

My daughter and I are huge fans of Sherlock Holmes so naturally, we had to see where he lived and thought that the Police Cap and the Red Telephone Booth would be perfect to showcase this spot.

PHPLondon3

I wish I can share more photos and use more stickers but I guess I will have to share it on another post.  We have definitely enjoyed touring London and this London-Calling 12″ Double-sided scrapbook paper with the Discover London 3D Sticker pack are the perfect combination to decorate my layout.

Tropical Paradise Planner Spread

HeyCaitlyn Storm Circle, everyone! Caitlyn here with another planner spread for you to be inpsired by! This week I decided to aim for a sunny, warm, and tropical theme – nothing like tricking your brain into feeling warm during a cold spell!

Ever since we were hit with a crazy blizzard over here on the east coast, I have been dreaming of being somewhere warm and sunny! Possibly somewhere exotic with white sand beaches and crisp blue water. Ah, wouldn’t that be a dream? Since I can’t afford to travel anywhere exotic at the moment, I decided the next best place to recreate this dream was in my planner!

tropical paradise planner spread

All of the bright colors I used in my spread this week just make me beyond happy! There’s nothing like opening up your planner and being welcomed by joyful colors and beautiful designs.

tropical planner spreadThe stick on pockets are such a great addition to your planner spread! With having a busy week between the dentist and grocery shopping (and birthday present finding!), I’ll need a spot to keep my appointment card and receipts! What better way to keep everything together? Not only do you have something that’s super functional, you have a super easy decoration to include! It’s almost as if I picked a beautiful hibiscus flower and added it into my planner – love it!

I decided to pull one of the full box stickers from the Kawaii Planner Sticker set to add to this spread. I love taking full box planner stickers and cutting them diagonally. Sometimes you become inspired by a certain pattern or design, but want to use it in more than one spot. You can see an example of how I do this on Tuesday and Sunday.

tropical paradise planner spreadPuffy stickers are amazing. I was enjoying everything that I had so far, but I wanted my planner spread to pop some more. Best way to have it pop? Add some puffy stickers and have it really pop!

phptropical2.4Super easy planner tip? Add decorative clips to the top of your planner to make sure you’re always in the right spot! Find your clip, or clips, and open up to the correct pages! Plus planner clips look amazing when you see them peeking out over the top of your planner!

Products Used: Free Spirit Planner, Doctor Functional Stickers, Budget Functional Stickers, Kawaii Planner Stickers, Embrace Today Planner Stickers, Embrace Today Puffy Stickers, Summer Fun Washi Tape Set, Summer Fun Epoxy Clips

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my planner spread this week! Can’t wait for next month and I can’t wait for warmer weather!

Free Spirit Boho Inspired Planner Spread

Caitlyn Storm CircleHey, everyone! Caitlyn here and I’m so excited to be making my debut here on the Paper House Productions blog. I am a huge planner addict and I’m excited to be sharing some of my favorite tips and tricks and planner spreads with you. Creating in a planner is a lot easier than you would think and my goal is to show you how much fun it is!

January is the time where I try to get myself set up for the new year. When the new year comes around it means taking the time to learn a new planner and create the style that will come with it. Luckily the Life Organized line makes things really easy! With my Free Spirit planner by my side, I am ready to take on 2018!

boho inspired planner spread

The monthly view for this planner is gorgeous! There is plenty of space to include multiple events for each day that you want to see in one glance. In addition to ample space for your every day, there are helpful sections in your side bar! Each section in the side bar helps to keep your month on track without sacrificing space for your day to day events!

boho inspired planner spread

Getting into the weekly view was just as enjoyable as the monthly! I personally like to write my plans as they come to mind, but the layout is broken up into thirds. Depending on your personal style you could divide each section into morning, afternoon, and evening or follow my personal style and just write it in!

For this first week I opted to utilize the bottom section to write down my different goals for the year! For each day I wrote down a category and my top three goals for that category. The weekend days I devoted to including my personal goals that I wanted to focus on. I wound up coming up with a lot more than three things, but all of it can be done! The best part of coming up with my goals? I was able to use the super cute stickers found in the back of the planner to help keep them organized!

Each piece of the Free Spirit line helps you to create the perfect boho inspired planner spread! It’s so easy to coordinate each piece to fit your needs.

I adore full box stickers! Some days you don’t have a lot to write down and it makes decorating your planner spread that much more of a breeze.

Being able to utilize the functional stickers in my planner is so helpful! Not only does it save me on having to write, it gives me a chance to add some more cute features to my spread!

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my planner spread. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!
