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!

Easy 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.

IMG_8087

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!

Wonder Woman Planner 2018 by Laura C

The quality, colors and designs of the Paper House Life Organized stickers take your planning to a whole other level.  They are so cool with all the foil accents!

Wonder Woman close up #1

Here I’ve used a mix of the Karmabee washi, the Wonder Woman (TM) Life Organized stickers, and Sticky Pics Faux Enamels, and general stickers.  To make it your own….add some of your own doodles or drawings.

You can create a lot of interest by layering up the stickers like this pic in he bottom right corner….

Wonder Woman close up #2

All these different sticker types are made to go together so well they all look like they are from the same set!

Wonder Woman close up #3

You can make accessories for your planner using these Paper House Life Organized goodies too.   Using a basic gold paper clip from any office supply store, just make a couple of washi “flags” and then use the Faux Enamel stickers to add a fun element. And the best…..these stickers come with reverse images!  So you use the two reverse images together back to back…..no stickiness to worry about, the images line up perfectly to create the awesome clip to keep you even more organized!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are inspired to get yourself organized, using these great products from Paper House!  You can find all the Life Organized products and more in the store HERE.

Setting Up and Decorating My Traveler’s Journal with Xyron

Maria Russell Circle

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:

Welcome to the Color Me Happy Blog Hop!  We’re pairing up with SpiegelMom Scraps all week long for some colorful projects showcasing out collections and their sequins!  We’ve got a great giveaway so be sure to stick around to the end of the post to get more details!

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

Today we are showcasing Maria’s creations!

Maria Russell CircleHello my crafty friends.  I hope you are all having a great day!  I am super excited because this week, the Paper House Productions design team is teaming up with Spiegelmom Scraps.  We have received some colorful sequin mixes from Spiegelmom Scraps and I thought I would make two shaker cards, showcasing the sequin mixes and some beautiful faux Enamel and Puffy Stickers from the Paper House Productions.

For my first card, I used the Party Puffy stickers, the Puffy Numbered Candles stickers and the Rainbow Bright sequin mix, with some items that I already have from my collection.

PHPSMSCard1

 

For my second card, I wanted to create an underwater scene with the Mystical Mermaid Faux Enamel stickers and of course the colorful sequin mix from Spiegelmom Scraps.  If you watch my YouTube process video, you will be able to see how I created this scene.

Please click on the link below to see my process video.  I hope you will also consider subscribing to my YouTube channel if you haven’t done so yet.  Which one is your favorite?   I hope you got inspired today.  I have listed and linked the supplies I used below.  Have a wonderful day!

Katie King CircleHi everyone! I don’t know about you, but I love cute stationary! Anytime I am at the store, I can’t help but wander down the office supply section to see what is new. With that being said, cute stationary can be a bit pricey. This can especially be true if the stationary has some sort of ‘’cool element’’ to it, like it being holographic. So, to save you money on stationary, while also providing you a super easy way to make your own, I give you today’s DIY!

Today I am going to be showing you how to make your own Mini Shaker Notebooks! These mini shaker notebooks are a great way to dip your toe into the ”shaker card world” if you have been wanting to try something new. I opted to go the mini notebook route because 1) they looked so cute and 2) they were the perfect size for the motivation phrases in the Color Washed 12” Paper Pad. Besides the Color Washed Paper Pad, I also used a bunch of adorable sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps!

Now, when making your own mini shaker notebooks, I do recommend using SpiegelMom Scraps sequins. This is because the sequins are the right size for the mini notebooks and come with at least 3 different sequins ”types” in the pack. For example, in the pack ”Because You Love Me”, you get the colors antique gold, dark red, and copper metallic. Due to that, I was able to pick out more gold sequins for my mini ”make ideas happen” notebook and remove some of the red sequins.

This is just something you might want to keep in mind when making your own mini shaker notebooks.

Mini Shaker Notebooks Featuring Spieglemom Scraps

To create your own Mini Shaker Notebooks featuring SpiegleMom Scraps, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Take the cover all off of your mini notebook and set the pages/back cover to the side. Then grab your craft knife and cut out a small square in the middle of your front cover. Once the small square has been cut, glue a piece of paper from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad to the front cover. Finally, recut the small square and (using an awl) poke through the holes at the top of your mini notebook.

When you are done with this step, you should have something like the above photo.

Step 2

Step 2: Flip your font cover over, so you are viewing the back. Then cut a piece of a clear plastic sheet that is big enough to cover the square hole. Once your piece of clear plastic has been cut, apply double-sided tape around all four edges of the square and apply your clear plastic. Finally, grab your SpiegelMom Scraps sequins (I used Because You Love Me) and sprinkle a small amount in the center of your clear plastic sheet.

Note: You will only want to use a small amount of sequins in this project. If you add too many sequins, you will not get the cool shaker effect. Also, don’t worry how the back looks because we will be covering it up.

Step 3

Step 3: Cut out a phase from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad and another piece of scrapbooking paper that will fit your mini notebook. Then, using your favorite adhesive, glue down the phrase first, then add your final piece of scrapbooking paper.

When you have added your pieces of paper, poke through the holes at the top of your mini notebook.

Once your mini notebook cover has dried, reattach it to the rest of mini notebook and you are done!

 

 

Mini Shaker Notebooks Featuring Spieglemom Scraps 3

I love how each of these Mini Shaker Notebooks turned out! I think my favorite one would be the mini ”never give up” notebook.

Now, if you are loving the other two mini notebooks I made, you can easily make them as well! The only thing that is different about these two mini-notebooks is the SpiegelMom Scrap sequins. All the paper/motivational phrase came from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad and below is the specific sequins I used.

  • Mini ”life is what you make it” Notebook: SpiegelMom Scrap – Sprinkling Kindness
  • Mini ”never give up” Notebook: SpiegelMom Scrap – Peachy Keeny
