Fall Banner DIY

Hey Everyone!

So this past weekend, I took out all of my Fall decor and decorated my apartment. I usually do this around September, but I never got around to it until just recently. I went on Pinterest to get some inspiration and found this cute Fall banner that you can print at home. Here’s how I created mine: wpid-wp-1445463841572.jpeg

First, I printed it out. If you would like this printable, go to www.dazzleexpressions.com. The full printable says Happy Fall, but I just printed out Fall.


After printing, I cut out each banner and pasted them on black cardstock paper. Then, I cut them out again leaving a small border around the banners.


This is how it came out. As you can see, it fits perfectly in the space on my bulletin board. To finish off my Fall look, I added some color leaves on top. (You can find these leaves in any dollar store.) Since Halloween is coming up, I used some stretchy spider web decoration also.

I really like how this came out. How are you decorating for Fall?


Incoming Happy Mail + Reminder!

Hi There!

I wanted to share some happy mail I received about two weeks ago from a lovely pen pal of mine. Warning: Cuteness overload! 🙂




These ribbon paper clips are too cute! I am currently using them in my planner for Breast Cancer Awareness month.


Here is everything else that was in the folder. I love the journaling cards she included.


Here’s a closeup of the journaling cards.

The Papered Lantern Sticker Review!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Having an extra day off for Columbus Day is always a plus.  Today I’ll be sharing some stickers from The Papered Lantern shop. I was lucky to be one of the selected to do this review.


These are all the stickers that I got in my package. I love how colorful and vibrant they are.  All are in a matte finish.


I can’t wait to use these stickers for my Fall bucket list.  🙂


From left to right: paw print, shopping cart and asterisk icon stickers. Each sheet has 144 stickers. Colors range from a soft pastel to bright and bold.


Here’s a closeup of the shopping cart icon stickers. These are great to use for grocery trips and Target runs. With Christmas right around the corner, I will be using these for sure!


I use arrow flag stickers a lot in my planner to mark days I’m either at work or school, so I was happy to see some in my package. Each sheet has 27 stickers and I love the assortment of colors.


These happy mail stickers are the cutest!


I also received this sampler of circles, checklist and teardrop stickers.

Overall, I think these stickers are wonderful. I love everything especially the bright colors. I’m definitely looking forward to using these in upcoming layouts. If you want to see how I use these stickers, make sure you are following me on Instagram @heartdreenie.lifestyle.
