Removable Sticky Note Dashboard with Xyron

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! Like most people who have planners, I love sticky notes! To be honest, I have always loved sticky notes and have used them in my planners for years. However, until recently, I had never heard of a sticky note dashboard (crazy, I know). Since my planner has a spine that can’t be opened, adding a ‘’pre-made’’ sticky dashboard is sort-of out of the question. So, I decided to make my own and that is what I will be showing you today!

Today, I am going to show you how to make a Removable Sticky Note Dashboard using Xyron! If you are unfamiliar with Xyron they are a company that creates products to enhance and protect your handmade creations. Some of the products that they are best known for are their sticker makers, creative stations, and tape runners. In today’s project, I will be using their tape runner.

This particular sticky note dashboard that I am creating, was designed to go into my Paper House Productions 18-Month Stargazer Planner. Like every Paper House planner, the 18-Month Stargazer Planner is beautifully put together and includes a variety of things. For example, quotes, pockets, several different places to take notes, stickers, etc. Also, if are not a fan of the ”galaxy look”, Paper House has a bunch of planner options ranging from florals to Wonder Women!

Removable Sticky Note Dashboard with Xyron

To create your own Removable Sticky Note Dashboard, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Cut a piece of scrapbooking paper that fits on the inside of your planner. If you are using the 18-Month Stargazer Planner you will want to cut a piece of paper that is 6 ½ inches wide by 9 inches tall. The paper I used for my planner came from the Color Washed 12’’ Paper Pad.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab all of your sticky note pads and lay them out onto your piece of scrapbooking paper. Once you are happy with the layout, flip each sticky note pad over and apply some adhesive to the back using your Xyron Tape Runner. Then press your sticky note pads into place.

Note: If you are wanting to use a big sticky note pad (like the blue pad in the corner) you will want to remove half of the sticky notes from the pad, so the sticky note dashboard doesn’t add more bulk to your planner.

Step 3

Step 3: Lay your sticky note dashboard onto a planner page that you don’t mind covering up. Then grab a piece of washi tape (I’m using the wide tape from the Stargazer Washi Tape Set) and apply half of it the top of the sticky note dashboard, then fold over the half of the washi tape onto your planner page.

To further decorate your sticky note dashboard, you can apply more washi tape around your sticky notes. For my sticky note dashboard, I used the thin gold tape from the Wine Washi Tape Set to outline my sticky notes.

Once you are happy with how your sticky note dashboard looks, you are ready to start using it!

I love how this removable sticky note dashboard turned out! Using the Xyron Tape Runner really made the whole process go by very quickly. In terms of time, I had this dashboard created within 30 minutes. It probably should have taken me less time than that, but I kept changing the layout of my sticky notes!

Speaking of sticky notes, you may have noticed that I decorated my sticky notes. To do this I used the Stargazer Faux Enamel Sticker and Stargazer Life Organized Micro Stickers, which match back to the 18-Month Stargazer Planner. This is totally optional, but I thought it made the sticky notes look a little cuter.

Plan With Me Using Washi Tape

Daisie Hansen CircleHello everyone!  I’m here today with something a little different for me, a planner spread.  I have been a huge planner person for a few years now but I rarely share my spreads.  I was so excited to get the Stargazer planner to play with!  It is undated 18 month calendar with the gorgeous celestial design.  It also comes with pockets and stickers for all your planning needs.  There’s a whole line that coordinates with the beautiful design to make it easy to decorate as you plan.

I have been in this planner for a couple of months now and decided that for April I want to change up the design a little.  For me I have a tendency to get bored with planning and by changing up the design it keeps it fresh and interesting.  So I chose some of the beautiful washi tape to use in altering the design.

For the first week in April, I was inspired by this amazing Pansies Washi Tape.  It really spoke to me because my mind was on spring.  I chose to use some watercolor to enhance the washi design.  I then used my Xyron sticker maker to stick the cut aparts from the Color Washed collection.  Last I added some of the Butterflies Faux Enamel Stickers to really make this feel like spring!

The second week of April was my birthday week!  I love pulling out the Cupcake Washi Tape Set for this spread.  It made it feel so festive.  I used 2 layers of the washi to completely cover the design that was already on the page. I used the watercolor to create the rainbow balloons.  I love how it came out!  The Kawaii Planner Stickers were the perfect addition to this week!  IMG_3909

I did find that as the week went on that the second layer of washi tape started to peel up a little.  I assume this is due to the finish on the washi.  I ran the top layer of the tape through my Xyron sticker maker to adhere it back to the washi.  That solved that problem!

Products Used: Stargazer Planner, Pansies Washi Tape Set, Lavender and Green Polka Dot Washi Tape Set,  Cupcakes Washi Tape Set, Butterflies Faux Enamel Sticker, Kawaii Planner Stickers

Paper House Productions & SpiegelMom Scraps Blog Hop & Giveaway – Day 4

PHP_spiegelmom-Co-Hop2018-banner (1)

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

Celestial Themed Planner Spread

Caitlyn Storm Circle

Happy first day of spring, everyone! It’s me Caitlyn, back to show you another planner spread.

I don’t know about you, but I am super excited for spring to finally arrive. We have had our weather range from absolutely glorious to down right frigid in the north east. I’m hoping that the official start of spring starts to bring in some beautiful warm weather.

One of my new favorite things to do is partake in astrophotography. Unfortunately it has just been too cold to go outside late at night to take photos of the stars! The best way to fix this problem? Bring the stars inside (and to my planner)! BestIdeaEver. Creating a celestial themed planner spread is the perfect way to fix my issue!

In order to best showcase this spread, I decided to share this spread as a “before the pen” shot. Adding in pen would have made this spread extremely distracting in these shots!

Putting together this spread was extremely easy. I took a sheet of black cardstock, cut it to the correct size of the boxes and used a tape runner to adhere it to the top set of boxes. Obviously I couldn’t stop the spread right there so I went in and used the brand new Stargazer washi set to add just a little bit of decoration. Obviously I couldn’t stop there – there was a huge section that just needed to be decorated!

I used two different faux enamel sticker packs for my decorations. I used the Stargazer Faux enamels and the Celestial Faux Enamel Stickers. The combination of these two sets worked wonderfully. Celestial added beautiful constellation stickers and the beautiful quote highlighted and the Stargazer set added bold stars and decorative crystals. To help fill out my own personal night sky, I enlisted the help of additional star stickers from the Stargazer micro sticker set.

Piecing together a planner spread doesn’t need to be complicated at all! Paper House Productions makes things very easy since each set has multiple coordinating pieces! I know when you first start out with decorative planning it can be really intimidating, but don’t be afraid!

I hope that my little bit of the galaxy inspired you to create your own little version in your planner!

See you all next time!

XOXO,
Caitlyn

Wonder Woman Planner Spread

Caitlyn Storm CircleHello, everyone! It’s me Caitlyn back with my first post for March!

March is generally when my year starts to truly pick up. We finally start to move out of the hum drum and bleak colors of the winter months and into the gentle warmth of the soft colors of spring. While I normally gravitate towards pastels at this time of the year I decided that I needed to do something a little different. I recently watched the Wonder Woman movie for the first time and with all of the wonderful Wonder Woman products Paper House Productions has to offer it was only fitting. This month we’re going bold with the help of Wonder Woman!

It’s not often that I have the opportunity to include my monthly spread at the beginning of the month. I usually like to fill this in as a I go, but as I mentioned at the very beginning this month is busier than usual. This month I’m relying on the monthly view to show me where I need to be and when. Trust me, almost every day this month will be filled with at least one thing by the end.

I couldn’t bring myself to write in this spread – not just yet! Sometimes less is more and I feel that was the case for the weekly spread this week. The Wonder Woman Planner Sticker set provided 90% of the weekly spread with some added elements from the Wonder Woman Micro Stickers. The micro stickers added little pops of excitement to the weekly spread. The smaller elements of the micro stickers also helped to balance out the heavier elements such as the full box stickers and the skinny sidebar sticker. I also included the skinny washi from the Superman Logo Washi Tape set as it matched the color scheme perfectly.

The long and skinny sticker from the Wonder Woman Planner Sticker set worked wonderfully in the side bar! The giant “To Do” list allows me to have more space to write the important things that I need to remember. I knew that I didn’t have any birthdays to worry about my goals would be the things that I needed to do. Any other month I more than appreciate the different sections, but this month it just isn’t needed!

I love that the square stickers in the Wonder Woman Planner Sticker set fits in the boxes in the monthly layout! I included mine at the beginning of the month since I didn’t enjoy the blank space there would’ve been due to the month change, but you can put them anywhere! The Wonder Woman 2″ stickers helped add some additional decorative elements to help fill in some space.

I hope you all enjoyed this week’s post and have some inspiration for your own Wonder Woman planner spread!

See you all next time!
