Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Carpe Diem Planner Page.

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

Step One. You’ll need the page die from the Sidekick Essentials 17 – Window Folder Set. Die cut the page out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Spritz the bottom right corner of the page with water. Spritz Dylusions Ink Spray in Blue Lagoon, Island Parrot and Fiery Sunset as desired. Dab off the excess ink spray and allow to dry.

Step Two. From the Planner Essentials – Pure Spring Stamp Set, you’ll need the chicken wire stamp. Apply Detail Black Ink to the stamp and stamp randomly on the page. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed and stamp four more times.

Step Three. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Planner Essentials – Pieces of Life 3 – Quotes Stamp Set, you’ll need the Carpe Diem words. Apply Detail Black Ink to the words and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the two words into strips. Ink the edges of the word strips using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Choose one of the reinforcements out of the Planner Essentials Reinforcement Variety Pack 2. Die cut the reinforcement out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the reinforcements using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. From the Planner Labels die, you need the arrow label and stitched label. Die cut the arrow label out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the stitched label out of the other piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of both labels using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Reminiscence the Book. You’ll need the 03 tag and the & symbol from the Sidekick Essentials 5 die. Die cut the 03 tag out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Die cut the & symbol out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Choose one of the arrows from the Planner Essentials 29 – Directions die. Die cut the arrow out of a piece of patterned paper from the Reminiscence the Book. Ink the edges of the arrows using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. Next you’ll need the notched label from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 4 – Tags & Toppers. Die cut the label out of a piece of patterned paper from the Reminiscence the Book. Ink the edges of the label using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Ten. From the Sidekick Essentials 14 – Bonjour Fold Out, you’ll need the large tattered rectangle. Die cut the rectangle out of a piece of patterned paper from the Reminiscence the Book. You’ll need both pieces. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eleven. Next, you’ll need the tag from the Sidekick Essentials 18 – Wave Pocket die. Die cut the tag out of a piece of patterned paper from the Reminiscence the Book. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Twelve. Adhere the reinforcements overtop of the holes on the page.

Step Thirteen. Staple the inside of the tattered rectangle 1/4″ from the right and 1 3/8″ from the bottom of the page. Adhere the arrow label 3/4″ from the left and 2 1/8″ from the top of the page. Use foam squares to adhere the tag 3/8″ from the right and 2 5/8″ from the top of the page.

Step Fourteen. Adhere the stitched label 5/8″ from the right and 3 1/4″ from the top of the page. Adhere the tattered rectangle 1 1/4″ from the right and 3″ from the top. Use adhesive and foam square to adhere the notched label 1/4″ from the right and 1 1/2″ from the bottom of the page.

Step Fifteen. Adhere the & symbol to the right hand side of the notched label as desired. Adhere the arrow to the left of the & symbol as desired.

Step Sixteen. Adhere the 03 tag slightly overtop of the & symbol as desired. Adhere the Carpe Diem words as desired on the tag.
