Stephanie is our resident Off the Page Project Queen! She does cards, planners, travelers notebooks, mini albums…all things non-scrapbooking! She brought us tons of inspiration in the last half of 2018!
Stephanie goes big and usually puts together a full set of cards that coordinate! Here’s just some of her amazing collections!
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!
Happy December! Samantha here with you. Every December I create a pocket style mini album that I use to document all the fun we have during December. I love having all our memories in one place, and truthfully, if I didn’t do a quick pocket style album for December, it might never get scrapped. I love Christmas and pack in a lot of fun! Today I have the first few pages from my December pocket album. It’s not too late to start your own!
I like to keep my designs simple. Cut apart tags are a great way to fill empty space and add a pretty design element. Add a sticker or two right on top of your photos for an extra touch of personalization.
The best part of scrapping an album like this is that you can come back to add more if you’re creating a page about an activity that takes place throughout the season. For example, we watch Christmas movies and have special treats all December long. I still have space to add one more photo, and it’s really easy to pull out my journaling tag to add to the list of movies we watched and coordinating treats that we had.
You can even mix and match the sizes of your photos. I mix 4 x 6 pages in with my standard 6 x 8 photos. There are no rules here. The more you mix the textures of your embellishments and sizes of your photos, the more you’ll love your album.
It’s a beautiful fall Monday and our team is ready for another week of fun creating! Julie joining you today and I made a quick little travel album for an upcoming Fall day trip the family and I will take! Be sure to stick around to the end of the post to check out who the winner was from our Blog Hop last week! Now let’s dive into my Autumn Woods Travel Mini Album
I kept things simple focusing on pretty patterned papers and simple stickers. I can always add more after i add my pictures in.
I used a cut-apart page from the Autumn Woods collection so I had space to add journaling.
Using washi tape from the collection was an easy way to add a coordinating border and change up the look of the patterned paper. It’s just translucent enough that it shows some of the patterned paper from behind it which also adds a nice touch.
Thanks to everyone who came by to check out the blog hop last week. We had so much fun combining Tombow with our fall products! A huge congrats to the winner of our giveaway:
Kirsty, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get that prize out to you!

October Calendar Plans
Hello friends! Katty here to share my October Planner Spread. I love October, not only is it Fall but theres Halloween. For my Planner spread I used the amazing Paperhouse Products as well as the awesome Tombow products.
I love combining all of the fun Halloween elements in my planner spread. The Tombow N15 pen was great for filling in the dates and writing in my planner.
Thankful Mini Album
Hello everyone! TinaGale here. I was so excited to play with some of Tombows markers. I decided right away that I wanted to do some stamping and coloring with them. I grabbed my Autumn Woods collection and decided to go with a gratitude mini album. I cut cardstock down to create the base then covered with some of the wood grain patterned paper. I don’t know about you but when I started scrapbooking tombow was the first glue I ever used and it’s never disappointed. The liquid mono was perfect to create this mini album with because it’s fast drying and so strong.
I stamped the phrase then used the twin tone bright dual tip markers to color them in. I used green at the top and red at the bottom and blended together in the middle. It created a beautiful fall color that reminded me of fall leaves. The pumpkin border paper was perfect to finish the cover off. I stamped some leaves then colored them in to decorate the front and throughout the album.
For the inside I used the stick on pockets to tuck little tags into. I cut tags out of two different papers then decorated them and now they’re ready to add grateful sayings and some photos to.
Once I had everything together I had fun going back and adding little bits of embellishments to each of the tags and pockets. There’s so many gorgeous bits and pieces in the Autumn Woods collection it was hard to stop adding them in.
You can see the full process here:
I hope you enjoyed my little album today and will try your hand at making one.

We can’t have a fun Co-Hop and not give away a fabulous prize – be sure to check out all the details at the bottom of this post! Samantha Tayloris wrapping up our week of projects with a mini album – let’s check it out!
I am excited to be wrapping up our week of family themed projects with Paper House and Xyron. My family is spread across the US. Now that my niece is 2, I love to find ways to let her know we love her so, even though we don’t get to see her often. I used paper from Paper House’s One Big Happy Family and Hello Baby Girl to create a mini album of photos of us with my niece. The journaling in the book tells her how much we love her. To keep it durable, I used lots of flat Planner Stickers and Clear Stickers to decorate the album, as well as plenty of Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker adhesive. I made the album especially kid friendly by laminating it with the Xyron 5″ Creative Station. This is a book that she can flip through, look at, and read. You can find all the details for making this We Love You book on my blog, Taylor Stamped.
It’s the last day to enter our giveaway, so be sure to get your entries in!
The winner will receive a Xyron Mega Runner, The One Big Happy Family Collection, and the Click Flipalbum! You can enter using the Rafflecopter Link below.
Hello! Samantha here today with another mini album. This time I have one of Paper House’s new Flip Albums to share. These small, free standing mini albums are a really fun way to scrap a small event or trip. I’m scrapping a weekend trip to Omaha with the Adventure Flip Album.
Not all adventures take you far and wide. The adventure I used this Flip Album to scrap is one of our favorite summer road trips. We head out about 2 1/2 hours away from our house to Omaha, NE to spend a few days exploring. Omaha has the best zoo, and lots of other fun things to do, too.
The Flip Albums come with an album, a set of matching stickers, and a set of matching photo corners. The photo corners are great used traditionally, but you can also use them as page embellishments. The silver triangles on the top of the page in the photo above are actually the photo corners.
I found that the cardstock stickers from Southwest Adventure went really well with the colors in the Adventure Flip Album, and some of the stickers like “epic” were perfect for the theme of my album. You can also add the clear stickers included with the album to the pre-pre printed sayings on the pages to add touches of your own style.
Besides lots of room for photos, there’s also some dedicated space for journaling. Since we take this trip almost every summer, it was more than enough space for me to tell my story!
I love that I now have these memories scrapped in this fun road trip Adventure Flip Album. What adventure will you scrap with one of Paper House’s Flip Albums?
Hello! Samantha here with you today to share one of my favorite things to create : Mini albums! Today I have an album I created with photos of a trip my husband and I took together. I decided to create an Instax album with paper and embellishments from the Paradise Found Collection.
I started with a leather Instax album. It’s like a mini version of a regular scrapbook album with page protector inserts and everything. Instax photos print out at about 2″ x 3 1/4″, so even if you don’t have an Instax camera or Instax Photo Printer, you can still print out photos at this size.
Small photo albums this size are perfect for using lots of stickers as embellishments. Since we spent most of our time relaxing in the same place, there wasn’t a lot of journaling needed. Stickers are the perfect way to brighten up the album and add extra color to the story.
When I do need to add journaling to tiny pages, I like to take journaling tags from Paradise Found, and just trim them down. You can see in the photo above how I took a 4×6 journaling tag, cut it down to 2 x 3 1/4″, and journaled on a partial journaling tag instead.
Flat cardstock stickers (like the hello sunshine sticker above) can be added directly to a photo and slipped inside the page protector. 3D stickers (like the coastal life sticker above) are added to the outside of the page protector instead.
I also layered up some Paradise found papers and stickers to created interesting pages and custom journaling tags for my album.
Don’t forget to customize the inside and outside of your covers with paper and stickers, too! Have you ever made an Instax album?
Hi everyone, Erin Reed here today. I got these fun templates from a friend who was getting rid of them (company does not even exist anymore) and I thought they would beperfect for the base of a book!!! So I used the Paper House One Big Happy Family collection to create the pages attached to the plastic templates and some pictures of my family from this past summer to make a Family 8×8 Scrapbook Album with 4 pages in it.
Here is a video tutorial on how I made this album.
Each page is about one of my kids and also there is a family page. I off set the color blocked pages with a neutral page where I used the Paper House Acetate birds with a single graphic in the middle. This helps break up all the “busy” in the book.
I turned all the photos into black ans white because they were really fighting with the colors of the collection. I really wanted to use this collection for these pictures, because it worked so well. So a quick and easy tip is to make all the pictures black and white or sepia to solve that problem!!
I added little bits of stickers, gems, or cut up tags to fill in the sections that the template left for me to play with. This made it really easy to assemble my design for the pages, just find something that fits, says the right things, and stick it down!! This made the book go really fast!
I left the front and back covers with the word family, because that is what the book is all about!
Making these little mini albums is so easy when you have an amazing collection to work with!
