Joset Designs Planner Essentials


August 3, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! How are you today? It’s my turn to show you a project here. This time I made a card with the Planner Essentials 42 and the Monster dies. I had so much fun creating this card and I hope you will to!

One of the frames has the text Celebrate. A perfect theme for this creation. I die cut the frames in a pink cardstock. The one on the left and on the right are basic frames. The one in the middle is the one with the text. For the background I used some patterned paper with bricks on it. For a special effect I made some splatters with distress oxide in the color Peacock Feathers.

Then I made two cute little monster, one I die cut from pink cardstock and the other one from light blue/aqua cardstock. Two little friends having fun! I die cut some cookies as accessories for the pink one.

I also die cut some party accessories as decoration using dies from the Party time set. The garlands are all over the place. How fun are those!

I also added some confetti pieces all over the card using the same colors as the rest of the card. In the end I added some white splatters all over the card. Now let the party begin!

I hope this project makes you as happy as the monsters on this card. Have a lot of fun creating this card by yourself. See you next time!

Greetings Alice

Happy Birthday!

July 18, 2022

Hello all, Alice here. Today it’s my turn to show you another creation with the super cute monsters! I used the birthday flip card which is such a fun die. This set includes the Happy Birthday Sentiment and then I used Monster 1, 3 and the Party Time dies to decorate. Let’s get started!

On the front I used one of the cute monsters. He eats the letters of the text. He really is a naughty one. I die cut the monster from White Soft Finish Cardstock and colored him with blue Distress Ink. On the front I used brick paper. It is Crafters Consertium brand paper. I thought this fits perfectly with the card.

When you open the card, there is another monster hiding on the back. He’s having a party with streamers and cake. The garlands are made from the party set.

I really like how you can give the card two sides. It’s a fun surprise for the recipient.

I hope you like this card as much as I do and you wil get to work on it too!

Greetings Alice

July 4, 2022

Today I can show you this great fun planner page. I started working with the super sweet new monster from Joset. How cute are these little monsters! I think I’m going to make a lote of creations with these little ones.

For this creation I made two planner pages. For this I used the planner page birds on splatter page (1864).

On the frond I used paper from Moda Scrap and on the background some pink paper. It’s the same pink as the hearts from the design paper.

Love tho combine the monsters with this planner page. Used some frames from another die to put the monster in.

Moda Scrap is one of my favorite design paper. You can combine it with a lot of different themes.

I love the colors that they have. The little monster you can also make in all different colors so the combine perfect to each other.

Hope you like this planner pages as much as I do! See you next time!!

Today another happy card from me on the blog. The weather is beautiful here in the Netherlands, so here's also a card in the sea theme.
First I made a background with distress ink. For this I used the dip technique. You first add some ink on your glass plate or craft sheet. Add a few drops of water to dilute it. This is where you dip your paper. This way you get a very cool effect.
Then I used the oyster shell card as a template. This time I didn't die cut it but I drew the outline in the center of the paper. I then cut it out. I did this in such a way that I want to make a shaker out of this.
Behind this you will soon place the colored background and the mermaid.
Then I made an acetate window behind the shell shape. I filled this with shaking material and then closed it off bij adhering the background with the mermaid against it. Picket fence has the perfect shaker material, it contains small shells.
Now it's time for the finishing touch. I cut a square slightly bigger then the shell square from designer paper and adhered the front to this. I also added a cute sand crab and some seaweed as decoration. 
This was my creation for this time. Hopefully it makes you happy. Until next time!

Honey, I love You

June 9, 2022

Hello everyone! Alice here with my turn again to show you a project on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. This time I started working with the super sweet bear. The honeycomb from the florals ‘n fabric collection fits perfectly with this theme.

I die cut the honeycomb from the top white layer. You can stick the blocks that fall out in the middle again. On the back is a piece of mica with which you can make a container for your shaking material.
For this card I used sprinkletz embellishments shakers. It fits perfectly with this card. There are little bears in it.
And of course the super cute bear in the front which I die cut from White Soft Finish Cardstock and colored with distress ink. She is enjoying her honey pot with the buzzing bees around her.
A matching sentiment stamped at the top left on a pink checkered paper. This is paper from Simply Stories. I like paper with dots and cubes. You can combine this so cool with everything.

Hope you like my creation and see you next time!

Happy Birthday

May 23, 2022
Last Saturday it was my father's birthday. He turned 60. I usually make something fun. This time I started working with the new suitcase kit.
I made a photo book of this with different photos. I also used various nice dies from Joset.
I die cut the front page from denim. For reinforcement I used double sided adhesive behind it. I used design paper for the back of it. I die cut the suitcase strap out of cork.

I used double design paper for all pages because the design paper was only printed single. It is also a bit firmer.

On the next page I used a photo of my parents together. On the right I used Joset's whale. The whole book is in the sea/water theme. This is because my parents have their own boat and are very fond of it.

On the next page I added two photos of my parents boat and decorated the pages with some fun dies from Esther's nautical theme collection.  
The next page shows 2 pictures of their birds. The bird on the right they have had for several years. The bird on the left is a birthday present. I used the nice parrot from Joset and made it in the colors of the real parrot.

On this page that follows are the 3 grandchildren (our own kids), they all 3 have a life jacket on because they can sail on the boat with their grandparents. These pages are also decorated with different dies from the kit and from the planner collection.
On the last page I added another photo from the grandchildren and on the left the super cute octopus from Joset. This could not be missed in this booklet as he is my favorite from the sea collection. He is so very cute!
To make the booklet complete, I decorated the back in the same style as the front with the suitcase made of denim and cork. 
All pages are finished with reinforcers. These are also included in the suitcase kit.

This was my project for today. I hope I was able to inspire you again. The suitcase kit is really very cool!

Cow’s it going?

May 9, 2022

Hello everyone! Today it’s my turn to show you a nice creation. This time I started working with a TN page.

First I die cut the puzzle page (1848). For this I used paper from the Rainbow of Happiness paper pas (C006). Love this paper pad because of the bright colors! On the left die cut the spot that comes with the puzzle page. I used this as a cow stain. Behind this I made a black square, only adhered at the edges so I could add the cow in between.

In the square on the right side I made a shaker window. I did this by making mica behind the square window. You fold this in half again. You can use anything as shaking material. I used some Picket Fence here and combines it with micro beads.

After that I started with the cow and the pig. I colored both of these with distress inks. With the cow you don’t have to add his feet, tale and all his marks as it won’t show.

Now it’s time to finish the pages. The cow can go in the spot on the left and the pig on the other page. Behind the pig I added another background. I used the earth background die (1895) for this.

At the end I stamped a sentiment on both pages to complete it.

Hopefully you like this page as much as I do! See you next time!

Flower Pot

April 18, 2022

Hello everyone, it’s Alice here. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I’m very much into Spring mood these day with the beautiful sun shining here in the Netherlands. I therefore decided to make a colorful card using some lovely flower dies and the gnomes! I hope you enjoy creating this card or some of the techniques I will show you in this post.

First I started with the flower pot. For this I first edited a piece of paper with Dylusions spray. I then used this paper to die cut the flower pot. I then embossed the pot using an embossing folder from Tim Holtz, see picture below. This gives a nice wood structure to your flower pot. I then sprayed the pot with embossing glaze. After that I used a distress crayon to make the darker spots on it.

Then I made the lovely gnomes. They are so cute! You can use them in a winter theme but also in a spring theme.

I made a girl and boy gnome. The colors on the gnomes I made this time with ZIG markers, they are watercolor pencils. Love them to color the different parts. They have beautiful colors with a lot of pigment in it.

On the top of the flower pot I made some lovely flowers with the Florals 7 set (#1843). I used 3 of the 5 sizes for this. I colored the flowers also with the ZIG markers. In the middle of the flowers I added some beads using Glossy Accents and let it dry.

In the background I made clouds with a mask and Distress Ink Oxide Tumbled Glass. I backed the card with some Modascrap paper in the same color theme as the flowers and the gnomes.

This was my creation for today. I hope I inspire you to make a card in this spring theme!

See you next time!

Greetings Alice

Swimming Diploma

April 4, 2022

Hello everyone! How are you today? Today I want to show you a planner page. This time I made a page for our youngest son who was allowed to swim for his swimming diploma. Last Saturday the time had come and he made it!

For this page I used the beautiful paper of Modascrap (sailer’s life) Modascrap is one of my favorite papers! This topic fit wright in! Also the colors are matching with the swimming diploma.

First I cut out the page. This is a page from the new planner serie (porthole page 1937). For the protholes there is a matching die in this set. I cut out two of them with jeans fabric. On the backside of it I used clear double sided adhesive. Do not remove the layer of the adhesive. The fabric will stretch. Use glue to fix it.

The middle one I made red with the distress ink color Aged Mohagany. This because here comes the photo and so it can stand out a bith with the other two.

Than printed a photo with the selphy printer. Size it up and make it in the middle window. I’m so proud of our litlle boy!

At the bottom window I used the whale of Joset’s collection. It fit’s perfectly with the theme and the paper. On the background of the window some paper also from the Modascrap theme. The whale is just as happy as out son.

For the top window also some nice decoration. The fish belongs to the set of the planner page. (1937) The water plants on the background belongs to a summer kit. The nice text comes from a set of the sidekick planner (1769)

Finally, some appropriate re-inforcers. Of course also in the same theme as the rest of the pages.

Hopefully you like this page as much as I do and see you next time!

Hello everyone!! Today I wan’t to show you this cute little dog in his dog house. I have two dogs of my own and I love them so much! In this case the kitty runs off with the dogs bone.

This time I used some paper for the background from ModaScrap. This is one of my favorite papers. First I die cut 2 squares with the Postage Stamp Squares dies (1256), one just a little larger then the other. I like the edges on these squares.

After that I cut and colored all the figures. For the coloring I use distress ink. I love to color all parts with the ink. Great to combine all colors. I also like to make something happen in my creation. In this case the cat that steals the bone of the dog. To make it possible for the kitten to sit on the roof I used the body of the dog.

Next to the dog house I added 2 sunflowers. In the middle of the sunflowers I made small beads with glossy accents. Let it dry for a while and they look just like real sunflower seeds. These little beads I have in many different colors. I really like to combine these with te flowers.

This was my creation for today. Hope you liked it and I inspired you!

See you next time!

Greetings from Alice
