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!

DINO-MITE Composition Notebook

Hey everyone, so altered things is another one of my favs to do.  With it being back to school time you can usually get a good deal on composition notebooks so I grabbed one with a project in mind.  My grandson is a dinosaur freak….he knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs (he is 9 and can talk about dinosaurs for the entire day lol)

So i took a plain composition notebook and altered it for him to write in.  I started with the notebook, these awesome dinosaur stickers, adhesive sheets, and the tree bark paper.

SONY DSC

So first I simply cut the paper to fit the cover of the notebook.  I did cut it slightly bigger so I didn’t have to worry about putting it on the adhesive straight.  Next I placed the adhesive sheet on the cover of the notebook.

SONY DSC

I then puller them up by the tab (the adhesive will stay on the album) and placed the pattern paper on the cover.  Next I opened the notebook and cut the extra off with my blade and i used a file just on the corners.

SONY DSC

Now it was time to make it his by adding the dinosaur stickers and his name on the book.  I added a little keepsake envelope into the inside for the extra dino stickers I didn’t use so he can place them anywhere in the notebook.I’m sure he will write all kings of things about dinosaurs in this book!

Supplies used:

Tree Bark Single-Sided Paper

Dinosaur Shaped Sticker Pack

Thanks for stopping by the blog today….hope your next creation is DINO-MITE!!

Explore More Mini Album

Hey everyone, Stacy here to share with you a fun mini album I created using the Paper House outdoor papers and of course the fun stickers & clips that go along with it!

So lets start with the cover…I love to use the cut apart sheets as embellies for my albums..and the clip and sticks were such a fun way to dress it up.  I tied a little ribbon on the side.

SONY DSC

Ok now we can dive inside….It’s not secret I love mini albums and pockets and flaps so…I created this mini album with some chipboard I had in my stash, i made some smaller pages to alternate between the bigger pages.  We have a couple places for photo mats, journaling inserts and some fun stickers.

SONY DSC

Some of the cut a parts I simply punched holes in to make them small additions pages within the album.

SONY DSC

Ok so my next page…i’m getting into planners and the journey books, so I took a page out of a jouney book to create a custom mini album page.  I used the stickers from The Great Outdoors planner set, and of course added a clip at the top.

SONY DSC

Next another pocket with the slide out photo mat….the crazy thing is I don’t even camp but this line was so fun to work with!

Puppy Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. We got a new puppy this summer, and he’s just so darn cute that I can’t help but take his picture…and now I’ve got to scrap those photos. Whether your K9 friend is a new puppy or just a puppy at heart, I hope my puppy layout makes you want to scrap your dog too!

New Puppy Layout Small

Supplies: You Had Me at Woof 3D Sticker, Dog Micro Sticker, Great Outdoors Into the woods Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Better When Camping Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Tags Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Hunting Tags Double Sided Paper, Great Outdoors Washi Tape Set, Halloween Washi Tape Set

New Puppy Layout-002 Small

Since Paper House doesn’t have a specific pet collection, I started with some fun dog themed stickers. I wanted a mix of textures and sizes, so I chose the You Had Me at Woof 3D Stickers and the Life Organized Dog Micro Stickers. I print my photos at home, so I printed 3 1/2″ x 5″ photos on 4″ x 6″ photo paper. I trimmed the photos down to give them a bit of a “Polaroid” look. Then, I used the Dog Micro Stickers to create a fun detail under the photos on the white border.

New Puppy Layout-003 small

After I had my puppy stickers picked out, I raided my stash of Paper House collections for paper that matched. I decided that paper from the Great Outdoors collection coordinated with the stickers. I wanted a few more embellishments, so I reached for my Washi. Of course, I used the camo Washi from the Great Outdoors Washi Tape Set, but I also found that the orange and white Washi from Halloween Washi Tape Set was a great match, too! I also love that both Washi tapes have a metallic detail to them.

New Puppy Layout-001 Small

This puppy layout is the first of many, many dog layouts in my future. I can’t wait to see how else I can use Paper House to capture these memories.

Bible Journaling with Faux Enamel Stickers

Hi it’s Lisa here today to share with you one of my favorite things to use in my journaling bible…faux enamel stickers! These stickers have such shine and glam up any project! They also add dimension to your projects, but without all the bulk! This is great not only for bible journaling but for many other types of creative projects! When I was studying this verse I immediately thought of the beautiful Succulent faux enamel stickers.

Supplies Used: Succulent Faux Enamel stickers; Summer Fun washi tape; Panda 3D stickers (heart); butterflies faux enamel stickers

I tend to like to journal only in the margins provided for me so I don’t like to use any stickers that are to large. The adorable glitter heart is from the 3D panda sticker set & is the perfect size to act as a lovely accent for my cactus. I love using the thin washi tape to break up my white space and separate my handwritten notes from the title I created using letter stickers. Here is a close up of the lovely gold foiled washi tape that is from the Summer fun washi tape collection, I use this washi tape a lot!

In this picture you can also see the lovely gold faux enamel butterfly sticker. I love how most of the sticker sets have stickers of varying sizes so you are able to have extra tiny ones to add in those little white spaces that just need a bit of sparkle or shine!! The micro stickers are also perfect for these tiny accents but this faux enamel butterfly sticker kept with the faux enamel look that the succulent stickers gave my page.

I would love to have you follow me on Instagram – I’m lisantexas there! I share a lot of different paper projects using the amazing Paper House stickers and other products there! You can also use my code PH19LISA to get 20% off your next sticker order!! Happy creating!

My First Planner Go….I’m HOOKED

I’m excited to share with you my first time ever playing with planner goodies……i’m so hooked!!!!  I’m going to share my month of August with you.

SONY DSC

 

I’m using the fun PaperHouse/ML planner.   The first week I would say was just basic.  I used some washi tape, stickers, and sticky notes.

 Week two I experimented a little more.  I did a little doodling around the outside and adding some stamping in the corners.

SONY DSC

I have decided that I like to put washi tape across the center of it to divide my day into morning and afternoon….not sure how others are doing it but that is the way i’m rolling right now (that may change)  I have also started writing positive vibes at the bottom to get me through the week!!

SONY DSC

I got a stash of Paper House goodies and picked out these fun little clips….love that added little embellie to my planner.

Well that is month one of my planner in the books….i’m super excited to get some planner time in to start on September!

Marbelous Birthday Cards

Hello! Samantha here, and today I have something a little bit different for you. I have a set of 3 Marbelous birthday cards. I wanted to show you how many different options you have for card making with Paper House Stickers. All the cards use Marbelous paper as their base, they all use the same basic layout for the card, and they’re all even the same theme. However, by mixing and matching different types of stickers you get very different looks for each card.

Since I’m sharing 3 different cards today, I’ll share a photo of each individual card and list the supplies right afterwards.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Birthday 3D Stickers, Kawaii Hearts Faux Enamel Stickers

This is the most elegant of the cards. I chose a to use some of the Marbelous card stock that has gold foil to match the gold in the 3D sticker and faux enamel stickers.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Emoji Birthday 3D Sticker, Kawaii Not? Washi Tape, Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers, Kawaii Cupcakes Puffy Clips

This card is a bit more fun. I created texture by using a puffy clip for my focal point and a 3D sticker for my greeting. To create the border I paired a shiny silver rice paper with some cupcake washi tape.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Magical Faux Enamel Sticker,Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers

This last card is completely whimsical, as I made it with my soon to be 5 year old niece in mind. A little rainbow rice paper is the perfect starting point for some magical stickers. This card uses mostly flat stickers (I sneaked in a small enamel heart) to make it easy to mail, but the fun faux enamel sticker adds a special touch to the card.

There you have it; a trio of Marbelus birthday cards.

Marvelous Memory Maps

I have such great early childhood memories of going on roadtrips with my family and placing pins in maps at the roadside diner that we would stop at. I loved seeing how people from around the world had visited this one spot in search of a great breakfast. There was nothing more rewarding than pushing the pin into the map and knowing in 10-15 years that pin would still be there. These memories are what inspired my latest project. I created a cutout map using scrapbook paper from Paper House Productions.

The project was simple. Paperhouse had done all the heavy lifting for me by creating such gorgeous paper. I love that the map feels vintage and faded, which makes the map feel like an heirloom.

I decided to cut the map out as I wanted something distinctive to hang on my wall. I had to save all the scrap paper as I love the vintage license plates. It reminded me of playing the license place game on many family road trips, and something I still do.

Armed with an exacto knife and cardboard I cut out the shape of the USA. Cardboard provided an excellent backing incase I decided to put pins or tacks into the map.

After I had finished cutting out the product I decided that I wanted to use my vintage typewriter to type out the different names of places I wanted to put on the map. This is only the beginning of the project and I know this map will continue to grow as I continue to make more memories.

While I opted to create a memory map there are so many other things you can do with this map.

You could put pins of what states you have traveled to, where your relatives live, places you dream of visiting, where you have received postcards, and letters from. There is no limit to your imagination.

Sundrenched Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. Summer is in full swing at our house. It is full of playing outside, summer sports, and the occasional over night trip to somewhere fun. Today I have a Sundrenched layout documenting a little bit of silliness on one of those overnight trips.

Summer Fun Layout

Supplies: Sundrenched Papaer Pad, Sundrenched Cardstock Multi Pack, Color Washed Cardstock Multi Pack, Summer Fun Rice Paper Border Stickers

Summer Fun Layout-002

While my husband had to work, the kids and I got to spend the day playing. We sent him this photo to tease him about that fact that we got to swim while he had to sit in meetings.

Sundrenched is a collection full of bright, saturated, summery colors. There are also lots of pops of metallic throughout the collection papers. To keep everything cohesive, I chose to make sure that I used gold metallic accents to carry the theme throughout the layout. Choosing at least one cohesive element helps keep from overwhelming the eye.

Summer Fun Layout-003

Sundrenched has a coordinating Cardstock Multi Pack, but in addition to the the Color Washed Cardstock Multi Pack also goes beautifully with this collection. The words “smile” and “love” on my layout were taken from Color Washed.

I like to use a lot of dimensional adhesive and a mix of flat stickers and 3D stickers on my layouts. This helps to keep everything from just blending and running together. Your eye picks up on the different levels to the layering and sees more separation between images, journaling, and photos.

Summer Fun Layout-001

I’m loving how versatile Sundrenched is for summer themed scrapping! It’s going to be making many more appearances in my summer adventure layouts.
