So...it's a new year...time to make some plans, set some goals, organize your craft rooms and house and actually cross things off that to do list you're always making.(well this was our personal goal...but it's a good one for everyone!)

We're kicking off the new year sharing some ideas to inspire you to scrapbook and craft using products from The Girls' Paperie. The Girl's Paperie is a relatively new company started by Designer Margie Romney-Aslett. Margie has an amazing eye for designs and that great eye has translated into several must have lines. Paper Girl, On Holiday, Toil & Trouble and Tinsel and Twig are her releases from this last year! We can only imagine what she'll bring to us at this month's CHA!

Today and Friday our Glue Girls will be showing you her On Holiday line and giving you some tips on how to use our Glue Arts products to make the two products work perfectly together.

 

In Awe of You Layout
Designer: Danielle Flanders

Supplies:

Paper, stickers: Girls Paperie's On Holiday line
Cardstock: Worldwin
Adhesive: Glue Glider Pro, PermaTac refill, Extreme Adhesive Squares by Glue Arts
Twine: The Twinery
Chipboard alphas: Pink Paislee
Buttons: American Crafts and misc.
Chipboard stars: Scenic Route (red) and Pressed Petals (white)



Step 1: Cut the yellow paper (Vintage Travel) into 2 tag shapes and adhere to back side of the paper (graph).
Step 2: Add a strip of adhesive only on ends of tags. Adhere tags. Apply chipboard title.


Step 3: Add a strip of light blue cardstock to top and bottom of layout. Add photo. Also cut a small strip of red polkadot paper (Travel Skirt Paper) to add to the ends of the tags. Adhere. Bend the tags, so they will open.


Step 4: Use the Extreme Adhesive Squares to adhere the buttons to the chipboard stars. These work great for adhering the chipboard stars to the tags as well! They are very sticky and work awesome for heavier embellishments. Adhere stars to tags. Add memories sticker and twine.
Step 5: Adhere red chipboard, Girls Paperie date sticker and a yellow button. 
Step 6: Hand write your journaling. I used the title as part of my journaling. You can add more journaling under the tags or add more photos under them as well. You are finished!



We're in awe of Danielle and her beautiful layout!!

  1. I really do need to scrapbook more. Before Christmas I went to Drug Mart and printed off 125 pictures! Wowza!! I definately have my work cut out for me this year!
    Thanks for showing some of the Girls Paperie products! May get me inspired to scrapbook!

  2. I normally go with a word to focus on instead of a resolution, this year my word is DO. I do have a goal to scrapbook more... which is pretty much my goal every year! :-)

  4. One of my plans is to catch up on my scrapbookss, but my first priority is getting my craft room cleaned out and organized so I will have a place to work... or play depending on how you look at it. Would sure love to win some Glue Art goodies! I think I used every single adhesive I owned on Christmas projects last month!

  5. cute LO! My goal this year is to MAKE/TAKE more time to scrapbook and USE what I have!

    ReplyDelete
  6. My resolution this year is the same as always...to be more receptive of other people's feelings. And it is not really a resolution but I am still trying to find the 'magic' of a craft room that flows...if that makes sense. Where when I scrap, everything I need is within reach and mostly that it doesn't look like a hurricane hit the room when I have finished a layout.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have a lot of resolutions...as always, and will probably not follow through on 1/2 of them...lol. One of my crafting ones is to be published, and to get on a design team like GLUE ARTS...=)

  8. I must scrapbook more! Sorted through pictures last night and I have ALL of last year to do and I don't want to fall too far behind on this year. And my other resolution is to win a Glue Glider Pro!!! Maybe you can help me out with that one ;)

  9. I do need to scrapbook more and try to craft each day.

  10. I need to scrapbook a lot more, but will be losing my craft room in the next week. I need to be more patient with others.

    OBTW, I LOVE the Girls paperie!!

  11. Love this collection! Great projects! Mine is to scrap more after I get more healthy. Seems like I spent the last 3 months of 2010 being sick and I'm sick enough to stay home today...don't know why I'm on here...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes! I resolved to do 5 lo's a month. So far, I suck. :) Good thing I've still got 26 days!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Awesome projects, my goal is to craft more, and make more time for myself.
    Thanks for the chance to win a glu glider pro. Awesome prize.

  15. I ususally don't have set resolutions but this year I have decided to make some changes: trying to get some projects off my to do list, finally use the electric toothbrush that I have had for years, drink more water and the list goes on....so far I am actually doing good!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Excited to see what those talented glue girls make! I am always constantly trying to improve things, so I didn't make "resolutions" but do so all through the year! :)

    Thanks for sharing and YAY for Echo Park next week! :)

  17. My general goal is to do things that make me happy and have fun! In that, scrapbooking will be included, as well as playing with my kids, laughing more, and visiting my ageing grandparents more often.

  18. My first goal is to finish my treatments for breast cancer with a smile on my face and joy in my heart. My second goal is to organize my craft room so I can actually work in it! My third goal is to get something I've made published. Anne, yourmainestamper

  19. Wonderful projects. My goals are the usual - eat healthier, exercise, and be creative!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'd like to complete 1 drawing a week, get my scrap room organized (finally) and spend more time spoiling my pets. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. My goals are to scrap our 2010 Road Trips (that's the fun one!). The not so fun ones are losing weight and keeping a cleaner house.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful projects, love the GP papers.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yep, you're right. Many posts say they resolve to scrap more! Me? I'm no good at resolutions. But my pastor gave me a really great idea: He said instead of resolving to lose weight, organize, etc., why not instead resolve to smile and/or say hello to strangers? Sometimes a smile is the best present someone can receive. Commit random acts of kindness!

  24. Boy reading some of the goals posted by others seem so easy to me compared to what I hope to do :-) wearestampers mentioned having 125 pictures printed...I just picked up over 800 at Costco yesterday and that is just family pictures from Oct. to New Years. I hope to have all those into layouts before May. We are going on a Disney cruise in May so I need to be ready to scrap those in June. Based on previous cruises and Disney experiences I will be lucky to have less than 1000 pictures from our trip. My goal for just January was to get all printing done, do a lot of "sale" and online shopping for scrapping supplies, especially adhesives and replacing worn tools, to be ready to start my actual layouts by the end of the month. My biggest expense is adhesive, glue pro. I bought over a dozen refils at CKC in November and have used 3 already. I love any chance to win some. When I really get in a groove scrapping I can do over a dozen pages in a long session...and many times I will use up two cartridges from glue pro in one night. I am thankful I have only 6 family members...I just like taking pictures of two grandkids and our pets :-)

  25. No 800 pics for me to scrap...Wozzers! I am going to try more new techniques in 2011, and not be so afraid of making a "mistake" on an almost finished project. Thanks to your blog, I have lots of things to try. Linda Slattery

  27. Great layouts!
    I resolved to use more of my stash & to do some projects that take me out of my comfort zone.

    ReplyDelete
  28. One of my goals is to learn to felt, then work some papercrafting into the project. Too complicated to explain here, but I've been turning over these ideas in my head for a while. Time to dive in and try it. Surely some gluing will be involved. I know my source, whatever my needs to out to be!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My goals are to clean up after each scrapbooking session so I start clean each time - this is really turning over a new leaf for me! My other goal is to submit submit submit and eventually make a dt.

  30. OHHHHHHH! Super cute LOs! I love them! I made some resolutions for 2011--scrapbooking more, using up my stash of papers/etc. before getting more (which I already broke! I just had to have this paper pad!), and staying focused. LOVE it! Thanks for sharing another set of fabbbby projects:)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love the LOs! My goal is 52 layout for the year. That's ONE per week so I think I can manage it :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have to organize my basement including my overflow craft storage. And scrap some more, I've been doing crafts, packaging and altered items for more than a year but few pages.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have resolved not to buy more supplies, OK no more paper and embellies. I am using what I have and not buying what I don't really need, except adhesive. I always NEED more glue! Thanks for the opportunity to win some.

  34. My goal for the new year is to keep up with my blog, be more creative, get the family exercising more, and keep up with the house. We'll see how far we get.

    ReplyDelete
  35. A scrapbook, a minibook and more exercise..just to name a few goals..then there is cleaning up this house..yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't like resolutions but make goals all the time because of the sense of accomplishment when they are achieved. My new crafting goal is to finally be brave enough to enter a challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Goals include more scrapbooking, keep hosting crops and do more classes, eat better, loose weight, exercise more, blah, blah, blah...Happy New Year to you!!!!

  39. Great projects, tfs. For the last five years I have been commited to helping my son and his wife get on their feet. So I've been caregiver for my 3 grandson (9, 8, 5) and housekeeper. So my resolution this year is to do more for me.

  40. Love the twine on the layout! I've resolved to sort & organize my crafting space so I can find what I need to create with.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thanks for more awesome inspiration! My goal is to take more time for me, whether it's crafting, reading or even a long bath. It's too easy to do for everyone else with nothing left for me.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love Danielle's tutorial. Thanks for sharing.
    As for goals for the year. We joined the gym last Jan. I want to go more often. Have not put on pounds but have excess fat to get rid of. I also want to get my house organized. I started in Dec and hope to get it done by March.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My goal is to move my scrap space from a room i never use to an area I am always in so I can craft more. Then when i have a minute or 2 i can scrap a little.

  49. I have so much scrapbooking to do. That was my resolution. One page a week which seems like a goal I can accomplish. Love your products and these projects are adorable. Love the layout since I am into layouts this year!

    ReplyDelete
  50. nice layouts. I don't scrapbook but do make lots & lots of cards, boxes and sometimes books. Like the idea with the two tags might try that on a card. thanks for sharing, stamping sue

    ReplyDelete
  51. I just love those layouts! My goal this year is to really give my all to my business. It's been hard with the littlest one at home, but in another year, he'll be off to school. Sweet, yet bitter...I'll have more crafty time for my business, but I'll miss him here at home! My baby, growing up :( Thanks for the chance to win, I've been dying to try this but our budget is quite tight!

  52. Hope to get ahead on my cards. I never have a card made up ahead of time! Beth
