Live Life In Full Bloom Sidekick Essentials Sneak Peek

February 14, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Live Life In Full Bloom Sidekick Essentials Sneak Peek.

To create my Live Life In Full Bloom Planner Page, I’ve used a variety of the dies and stamps from the new Sidekick Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my planner page at home.

Step One. Choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence The Book. Die cut the Scallop Page from the Sidekick Essentials 12 – Scallop Insert twice out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of both pages using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. From the Sidekick Essentials 12 – Scallop Insert die, you’ll need to die cut the macrame hanger once out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the same die, die cut the three leaf die twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need three single leaves and one of the three bunch leaves.

Step Three. Still using the Sidekick Essentials 12 die, die cut the pot three times out of kraft cardstock. Die cut two of the single plants out of a piece of green paper from the Reminiscence The Book. Ink the edges of the pots using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Reminiscence The Book, you’ll need to choose a piece of patterned paper. From the Sidekick Essentials 16 – Seed Packet Set, you’ll need to die cut the rectangle out of kraft cardstock. Die cut the single leaf out of the green patterned paper you die cut the other leaves from. Die cut the number label out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the arrow out of the patterned paper piece you chose. Ink the edges of the rectangle, arrow and label using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of Reminiscence The Book. From the Sidekick Essentials 14 – Bonjour Fold Out Die, die cut one of the tabs twice out of the green patterned paper. Die cut the tattered square out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the tattered rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the tabs, square and rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Sidekick Essentials 17 – Window Folder Set Die, die cu the tab out of the green patterned paper. Die cut the bird out of a piece of blue patterned paper. Die cut the plain jar out of the same piece of paper that the arrow was cut out of. Die cut the open jar out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the jars, bird and tab using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. From the Sidekick Essentials – Home & Nature stamp set, you’ll need the Live Life stamp. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the square out. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. We’ll start with the left page. Adhere the top portion to each of the pots. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the pots to the bottom portion of the left page as desired. Adhere the two green plants to the first two pots.

Step Nine. Adhere two of the single white leaves to the bottom portion of the third pot. Adhere the three white leaf bunch slightly above the two single leaves. Adhere the remaining single white leaf to the left of the white leaves as desired.

Step Ten. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the Live Life square to the left of the pots as desired. Adhere one of the small tabs to the top of the Live Life square as desired.

Step Eleven. Adhere the frames around the squares and rectangles, so that they become one piece inside of two separate pieces.

Step Twelve. Now we’ll start on the right page. Use foam squares to adhere the kraft rectangle 5/8″ from the right and 1 1/2″ from the top of the page. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the tattered square 3/8″ from the left and 2 1/4″ from the top of the page. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the tattered rectangle 1 1/2″ from the right and 1″ from the bottom of the page.

Step Thirteen. Adhere the number label 1/2″ from the bottom and allow it to hang over the right hand side of the page. Adhere the arrow 3/4″ from the bottom and allow it to hang over to the right hand side of the page.

Step Fourteen. Adhere the single green leaf underneath the top left corner of the kraft rectangle. Adhere the macrame hanger 1/4″ from the left of the page. Adhere the large green tab to the right hand side of the tattered square as desired. Adhere the remaining tab to the top right corner of the kraft rectangle as desired.

Step Fifteen. Adhere the open jar to the plain jar. Adhere the bird to the inside of the jar as desired. Foam square the jar 1 1/8″ from the right and 1 1/4″ from the bottom of the page.
