Great Outdoors Layout

Hello! Samantha here today with a Great Outdoors layout created with one of my all time favorite Paper House collections. We’ve had an abnormally warm September and October this year, and we’re taking every opportunity to enjoy time outside.

Supplies:Great Outdoors Hunting Paper Crafting Kit, Great Outdoors Camping Tags, Great Outdoors 3D Sticker, Great Outdoors Rice Paper Borders, Great Outdoors Puffy Stickers, Great Outdoors Epoxy Stickers, Great Outdoors Epoxy Clips

Aptly named “Great Outdoors,” this collection is one of my absolute favorite for scrapping any outdoor photos. While it’s often habit to reach for the gorgeous Autumn Woods collection, Great Outdoors is another fabulous option for scrapping any outdoor activities any time of the year.

You can get the Great Outdoors as part of a themed kit (Hunting, Fishing, or Camping), or you can get individual sheets of patterned paper. The kits come with a set of card stock stickers and a set of 3D stickers, as well. The card stock sticker sheet can only be found in the kits, while papers and 3D stickers can be purchased separately.

I started my layout by layering the patterned papers I wanted to use. Then I added the flat card stock stickers from the sheet included in the Great Outdoors kits. There are coordinating alphas on the sheet that are perfect for creating a title. After I had every flat embellishment on my layout, I added texture with rice paper borders, and epoxy and puffy stickers. As a finishing touch, I added the epoxy clip to my photo.

Whether its spring, summer, or fall outside photos look wonderful scrapped with the Great Outdoors collection.

I cut the spider webs and title from black and orange cardstock using my Cameo. The title comes from the Silhouette store. I decided to focus on thin, complicated cut files so I could try out the Tombow Mono Glue Pen. It was so easy to run it across the web and letters for a very thin line of glue. I usually make a big mess with my adhesives but this worked like a charm! The glue is very thin so the only recommendation I have is to use it quickly so it doesn’t dry. I then used the black TWINTONE dual-tip marker for the journaling. I used the thicker tip so my writing stood out but the fine tip is very handy to have for more precise work.

Fall Bullet Journal Spread

Hi everyone!  Christine joining you to share a Fall Bullet Journal Spread.  I’ve been loving all the bullet journals I have been seeing lately and decided a new pack of Tombow TwinTone Markers was the perfect reason to try it out!

BulletJournal

Supplies Used: Autumn Woods Epoxy Clips, Autumn Woods Planner Stickers, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Autumn Woods Stick-On Pockets, Autumn Woods Puffy Stickers, Autumn Woods Patterned Paper, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Borders, Free Spirit Planner

I really enjoyed this process and decided I would designate my Free Spirit Planner for my bullet journaling creations.  It worked perfectly! Let’s take a closer look at the two sides of my spread.

I incorporated the Rice Paper Borders, Planner Stickers, Epoxy Stickers, and Epoxy Clips.  It was fun to have all the options.

I really love this side, I think because of the stick-on pocket!  Bullet journaling has such a practical organizing side as well as memory keeping. It also can allow for a lot of creativity – I think I will really enjoy dabbling in it!

Turning a Single Page Sketch Into a Double Page Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you. Today I’d like to walk you through turning a single page sketch into a double page layout. This is a really useful trick for when you have a sketch you really like, but have too many photos for a single page layout.

Supplies: The Great Outdoors Beneath the Stars, The Great Outdoors Into the Woods, The Great Outdoors Happy Camper, The Great Outdoors 3D Stickers, The Great Outdoors Cardstock Stickers, The Great Outdoors Planner Stickers, The Great Outdoors Hunting Adventures 3D Stickers, The Great Outdoors Epoxy Clips

Here’s the sketch I’ll be using today:

The first thing I like to do when working with a sketch is to pull my photos.

This is the point where I decided that I have enough photos that I need a 2 page layout instead of a single page layout. I laid my photos out into a left page and a right page. Since I am one photo short (on the right hand page), I’ll use the last photo space to ad a journaling tag instead.

 

For the left had page, I’ll follow the sketch, butiInstead of taking a single page and just creating it twice for a double page layout, I like to take the sketch and mirror it for the right hand page of the two page layout. Normally, I just do this in my head, but for the sake of this step-out I flipped the sketch so you can see what I mean in the photo above. I’ll be using the mirrored version on the right hand side of the layout.

Now that you know the basics of how your sketch will look on both the left and right hand sides, you can start building the base from your patterned paper. Again, you can see how the right hand page mirrors the sketch instead of being an exact replica.

Finish up the layout by adding your photos and embellishments.

Here you can see where I substituted a journaling sticker in place of a photo. You can also see that instead of putting a second title on my mirrored right hand page, I added a small cluster of embellishments. This keeps the feel of the layout cohesive without the clutter of 2 titles on one layout.

Turning a single page sketch into a double page layout is a great way to add flexibility to any sketch!

Busy Making Plans with my Kawaii Planner

Shannon Circle2

Hi everybody! Shannon joining you today and I’ll warn you in advance, this post is picture heavy! I am going to admit something to you, I was intimidated by planners. It was not something I wanted to embrace, I didn’t think I would be able to fill up pages with details of my life, my family, our day to day. On the contrary, I have been busy making plans with my Kawaii Planner.

I honestly didn’t think my days added up to that much. I am a housewife, I don’t have a job that I leave the house everyday, I felt kind of silly writing down…laundry. As I began recording things I needed to do, had to plan for and appointments..I saw that my days were actually filled, they were important, they did matter to the people I am surrounded by. There was no reason for me to feel like my days didn’t matter because they weren’t filled with important meetings and deadlines. My meetings, emails, deadlines are important too. Everyone has a role in this fabric of life. The point here is use your planner, enjoy filling your planner, realize that comparison is the thief of joy and know your days matter whether you’re a mom or a businesswoman, or both!

PHP PLANNER POST 2, AUGUST 2017, SHANNON M

I’m sharing the last few weeks of my life with you and the month of September, as I am still filling the days. Paddy and the boys are in full football mode and right now, it is all we know, and that’s ok. I’m the Meal Mom, and I am so happy to take care of the boys each week and the planner helps me keep everyday moments recorded and organized.

PHP PLANNER POST AUGUST CLOSE UP 2, Shannon M

Paper House Productions planners and accessories…what can I say about them? The real question is…what can’t I say about them?!?!? They are simply amazing. They are easy to use, they coordinate with other lines and meld perfectly together. You can layer them or you can let them stand alone.

Color Washed Scrapbook Layout

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made using the Color Washed paper collection along with the Summer Memories collection! I was so excited to receive the new Paper House Productions collections! The colors are so vibrant and gorgeous!

When I chose the photo for my layout, I just knew the background paper I picked was perfect, because as we all know, ‘Shrek’ takes place in ‘Far Far Away’ and the paper I chose just felt medieval to me! 🙂
