Hello! Samantha here with you today. I don’t know why, but I just really love sticky notes. I especially love the new ones from Mommy Lhey that are part of the This Is Us line. I thought it might be fun to have them more readily available (in my purse, on my desk, sitting on my kitchen counter), so I made some cute This Is Us sticky note holders.
These little sticky note holders were really easy and super fun to make. They’re also a great way to use up some of your paper odds and ends. I started by cutting each sticky note pad out. I left the pads connected to the cardboard backing that they come on and just trimmed around each notepad. Leaving the cardboard backing makes the pads a little more durable.
There are a lot of Paper House papers that will coordinate with the sticky notes. I used all Color Washed paper for this project, but collections like Marbelous, Sundrenched, and Flamingo would all work really well, too.
Once I had my paper picked out, I trimmed it down to the size of the specific sticky note pad I was going to use it with. I scored about a 3/16″ wide edge to create a book edge for the pad. You can make these sticky note holders so they are top or side opening. I did a mix of both.
Finally, I used stickers from the This Is Us line to embellish the outside of my books. I used a mix of flat stickers and 3D stickers, but kept the outsides simple. I will be using these, and they will get a bit beat up in the process, so I didn’t want to get too fancy.

Stephanie always has a quick, easy, and eye catching idea for you on how to use your paper! Here’s some of her Mini-album ideas!
Stephanie actually started her time with us on our PR team as a full blown planner. It was there that we discovered her equally amazing crafting skills that went beyond planning. That said, we wouldn’t want to skip over some of her planner inspiration today!
As you can see, she is multi-talented! We’re looking forward to seeing even more of her beautiful work in 2019!
Majken is sticking around to do some more designing for us in 2019 BUT before we dive into the new year we wanted to take a look back at some of her creations from 2018.
Here at Paper House we have a lot to offer to those who like to create themed scrapbook layouts. Although Majken doesn’t do those exclusively, the themed layouts she does certainly rock! Here’s a few of those creations!
Majken also does an extraordinary job of telling the story of life with non-themed products. Here’s just a handful of examples!
We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of creations she has up her sleeve in this new year!
Samantha is finishing out her second term with us here at Paper House. She brings a clean and simple style and works in all the different mediums from scrapbooking to home decor. Today we’re walking you thru her creations from this term!
First up Scrapbook Layouts
We challenged her to use 3 or less products on this one, obviously she had no trouble! Her three products were the Color Washed Collection, 3D Stickers, and Faux Enamel Stickers.
As a boy mom Samantha loves working with bright primary colors and stickers that coordinate perfectly. Here she combines the Great Outdoors Collection with several Clear Stickers and 3D Stickers.
Did you know Paper House has tons of wedding themed products to capture those romantic days? Samantha captures her family going to a wedding in this layout.
We love a multi-photo layout! Combine it with a grid style and some fabulous Faux Enamel Stickers and you can see why we celebrate the talents of Samantha!
Samantha captures a few trends in this layout – she’s rocking the Marbleous Paper Pad and therefore the Marble trend. She’s also working the 3 X 4 pictures in a grid form that seem to be popping up everywhere!
Puffy stickers combined with 3D stickers make this Beach themed layout pop!
Another area that Paper House has lots of options for you is Sports! Samantha used the All Star Paper Pad along with washi and stickers to showcase her little star.
It’s a good time at Paper House to be a Harry Potter fan! Samantha got to play with all kinds of Harry Potter goodies on this layout!
Who’d of thought you could put our products together to make a Monster Jam layout? Well we did of course, because we’ve got such a great variety of products!
Faux Enamel stickers combine perfectly with Color Washed Stickers!
You saw her work with Marbleous earlier in a couple of layouts – here she showcases it in a set of cards.
Finally she uses some of our beautiful Christmas Joy collection with 3D Stickers to make a sparkly shaker card.

Hey everybody! Khristina here with my final project for this design team term with Paper House Productions. I have absolutely ADORED being part of this team and working with these gorgeous projects. Make sure to check out my channel in the upcoming months because I have lots of goodies left that I want to keep on using. We were given the task to work with our favorite product this round and for me, that’s the gorgeous paper pads. Today, I am playing with backing a cut file using the gorgeous Color Washed Paper Pad and created some quilted heart details with little scraps of colorful paper.
I started off by cutting a 12×12 cut file down so that I only had the diagonal designs left. Then, I went ahead and backed all of them except two with patterned paper leftovers from the Color Washed paper pad.
For the remaining two largest hearts, I created a quilted effect. This is a super easy way to use up scraps and create an impactful look. You just start at the outside edges layering tiny pieces of paper around the edges until you have filled in the entire shape. Easy peasy!
I used the packaging technique to add just a touch of mixed media in coordinating colors to my background yardstick and then added just a couple of foam thicker for a title element. Last, but definitely not least, I grabbed the Color Washed cardstock multi-pack and pulled out all of the butterflies. I added some dimensional adhesive to their wings and it was the perfect finishing touch.
I would love it if you stopped by my channel and checked out the process video that goes along with this layout. Once again, I have absolutely loved every project and every part of the design team experience here and appreciate all of you so very much!

When I learned that the theme of this project would be sparkle, you bet I started to sparkle myself! I love anything to do with foil, glitter, and anything that sparkles! Paper House Productions has a ton of products with foil in it and with the help of Scrapbook Adhesives I was able to create the perfect sparkley project!
The 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit made it so easy to create the beautiful wings and make sure they stayed upright! The foam is double sided so you’re able to apply the foam to one side and then stick things down and onto your project. This can be seen by the small circles I used to frame the quote – so easy! I used Scrapbook Adhesive’s EZ Dots Tape Runner to help glue the rest of the project together.
Hello 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!
To create your own Removable Sticky Note Dashboard, you would do the following:
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: 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: 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.
