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!

Hello Paper House Productions fans! I hope you are all having a great week so far.  It’s Maria back on the blog today to show you how I set up and decorated my Traveler’s Notebooks, showcasing the new Unicorn Journey Book Set, Weekly Creative Journaling Stickers, Kawaii Stick-On Pockets, the Xyron Tape runner and a bunch of other supplies.  Since I am traveling to Dubai and Athens the week that this blog post will go live, I thought this is the perfect opportunity to set-up my traveler’s notebooks so I can take it to the trip with me.

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

Here’s what it looks like inside:

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

Khristina is kicking us off with a dreamy baby layout. For today’s project, I knew that I wanted to combine the gorgeous Marbelous paper pad with the new Enamel stickers.

Birthday Scrapbook Layout Featuring Faux Enamel Stickers

Daisie Hansen Circle

Hello everyone!  Daisie here with a layout I created featuring the Birthday Faux Enamel Stickers.  These were the perfect stickers to use for a layout about my son’s 15th birthday.  The colors and shine to these stickers are incredible!

I started out with a white cardstock background.  I then chose 2 patterned papers from The Great Outdoors Collection.  The woodgrain matched the color of the brick from the picture perfectly, while the chevron paper brought some pops of color.  I chose to tear the edges for some added texture.

IMG_3434

I used a free cut file I found online and created a couple of embellishments and title to compliment the faux enamel stickers.  I cut the files in both white cardstock and the chevron pattern paper to create this offset effect.  Then it was time for the stickers!  I love how the colors go great with the chevron paper.  They are flat stickers with gold foiling.  They have an enamel type finish to them that make them look like they are enamel shapes.  Perfect for adding a special element to your page without adding bulk.

IMG_3435

I chose to use the present stickers down in the right bottom corner for an added embellishment cluster.  They look great together!  I finished the page off with a scribbly outline and called it done!

Looney Tunes Scrapbook Layout: That’s All Folks!

Daisie Hansen Circle

 

Hello Everyone!  Daisie here with a new scrapbook layout and process video.  I chose to use the licensed Looney Tunes puffy stickers.  These stickers are true to the characters and wonderfully puffy, I used the whole sheet!

I started with the photo for this layout.  I was originally planning on using the Justice League Chibi Villans puffy stickers but when I came across this photo I knew it was the one.  I chose the Looney Tunes Puffy stickers to perfectly compliment the photo. Immediately I decided that I wanted to mimic the closing shot of Porky Pig popping out of the curtain.  I was able to accomplish this by cutting some circles out of some red glitter paper from my stash.  I chose an 8.5×11 size layout for this because I didn’t want to embellish with anything other than the fabulous stickers.

IMG_3263

I used some foam alpha from my stash for the title.  I strategically placed the puffy characters around the page.  I wanted to make them look like pairs.  So I have the Coyote chasing the RoadRunner, Marvin the Martian looking for Bugs Bunny, Daffy and the Tasmanian Devil are buds at the top of the photo, and last but not least Tweety and Sylvester are flanking the bottom portion of the title.

IMG_3264

To finish off the layout, I chose some white cardstock and black pattern paper scraps to back my photo.  I used the Looney Tunes title sticker in the center of my title and scattered the puffy stars around to finish it off.  I’m pleased with the fun tone of this layout!  It really captures the feeling in my photo.

Scrapbook Layout Featuring Wonder Woman Planner Stickers

PHP Intro ImageHappy March! I cannot believe how quickly this year is going already. How are you doing with getting your stories told? One story that I have been wanting to tell for awhile is about my nickname (Wonder Woman). As soon as Paper House Productions released their Wonder Woman products, I knew that I just had to use them to get this story told.

IMG_7095

This layout was sparked by this keychain photo. My kids bought me this keychain to help remind me how strong they think that I am and because they all call me Wonder Woman. Sometimes, this little reminder can definitely help make it through a tough day so I wanted to make sure that I documented this phase of life since everything seems to change so quickly.

IMG_7098

I started out by tracing a couple of plates from my kitchen to create the circles for the background that I wanted to hand-stitch. Then, I printed off an online coloring book page (these are great if you haven’t ever tried it) to use as a template for creating my paper-pieced Wonder Woman logo. That yellow paper is from the Sundrenched Paper Pad and it worked perfectly to create a subtle mixed media look without any mess!

IMG_7096

Next, I created a little flip tab on the top left corner and used by mini stapler to attach it the background. That gave me a perfect little home for this puffy sticker of Wonder Woman as well as a couple of stars.

IMG_7097

Finally, it was time for some embellishing and a title. I added stickers from the Wonder Woman Planner Stickers booklet all around my photo and then added some puffy sticker stars from the Justice League Chibi Heroes Puffy Stickers sets. A title and some journaling and this layout was complete!

I am really looking forward to playing with these licensed products even more as I have lots of superhero dress-up photos of my kids as well as Halloween costumes, plays, and a custom bat mobile bed that my little guy used to have…but those are stories for a different day! I hope that you enjoyed seeing how I documented my superhero nickname and I will see you again soon!
