Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. This year my husband and I are celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary, and with the prompt being “love” for the month of February I wanted to create this heartfelt creation for my planner essentials album. So grab a coffee and I will walk you through how I created these pages!
Step 1: Out of the worn wood paper cut your large heart, and cut your small heart from your choice of designer paper I used an older 49 & Market collection. Next, I cut out some white branches from blooming branches. I cut out two mats and added my ephemera and accessories.
Step 2: Cut two base pages from planner essentials 1 from your choice of designer paper, next I cut my polaroid photo mat from planner essentials 3 & 4 and tags from the worn wood designer paper. Cut out your quote “Enjoy this moment” from planner essentials 8.
Step 3: Creating your small heart pocket, first take your large heart stitched die and cut from clear acetate, next cut your small heart from your designer paper and attach. You will want to add your holes and line it up to the match the holes on your planner base page.
I attached the pocket leaving the top open to add my tags. Last assemble your pages as per the picture above adding your ephemera, branches, quotes, flowers, photo mats, date and enforcement rings on both pages.
I hope todays post brought you some inspiration to create your own anniversary or special moment pages.
Hi Everyone, Katie here, and todays blog post is based on a challenge from Joset! I am so excited to be using the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Hand Drawn Stamp & Die Collection. I decided to take her up on her challenge and do a creative background with stencils, inks and distress spray. So grab a coffee or tea and lets get started!!
Step 1: Take a sheet of heavy watercolor paper and cut it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Step 2: I took one of the stencils from Planner stencils 3 and added distress ink directly to the back of the stencil, next I spritzed it with water and pressed it to my watercolor paper and dried it with my heating tool. Next, I took my pink distress ink pad and smooched it against my mat, spritzed it with water. Then I took my reversed stencil image and dabbed it into my smooshed ink, and dry.
Step 3: Stamp and cut out your butterfly images and your tag from Esther new release as per picture above.
**Optional** I added some stenciling and a butterfly to the inside of my card base.
Step 4: I sprayed distress black soot on my matt, next I took a lid and rubbed it into the black soot and created the circles on my card image. I took my card front dragged the edges in the remainder of the ink on my matt and speckled. (See picture below)
Step 5: I pop dotted my butterfly with a foam dot.
Step 6: I took my ticket tag and adhered it to my card front as per picture above, next I added some black Sisal and adhered my butterfly on top.
Step 7: I added the word hello but any script word will do, next I matted my card front to black card stock and adhered it to a card base that is 6 x 9 1/2, scored @ 4 3/4″.

Hi Crafty friends, Katie here with todays blog post! #Decemberdbd and today I am using Josets cute Critters to create this cute Planner Page for Day 6 called Create a Tag! So grab a coffee or some hot tea and lets get started,
Start by creating your Sleigh, Squirrel, Bunny, Wreath, Candy Cane and tree from you favorite card stock. I did use some gold card stock on my wreath and on the squirrels bell for his hat.
I used many sets from Josets collection and they are all listed below. After you have cut and assembled your critters, Ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Next, take your white paint and speckle your images before putting them onto your planner page.
Start by cutting your base page from Planner Essentials 7 ( I used the larger tag die) cut it from heavy white card stock. Next I ran my page through a 3D embossing folder this created a cool texture to my page. I added reinforcement rings and one for the tag hole at the top. I inked the edge of the tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Last step is to assemble your page and add your quote for Day 6 #decemberdbd “Create a Tag”

Hi Everyone, Katie here with todays blog post! Today I am sharing one of my #decemberdbd ” In the Kitchen” which is day #23 featuring Josets Mrs. Clause die and Let’s Bake set! So while we are working on this page, grab a coffee and lets get started.
Start with cutting out your images from your favorite card stock and ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I also added some pink on her cheeks and assemble as per the package.
On my printer I typed out my word title and used a word banner from one of my other Planner Essential sets and then inked the edges.
With Planner Essentials 19 – cut your base page from Christmas Lives Here dark green paper. Then I cut the whisk head out of Silver foiled cardstock and the handle from Tim Holtz black distress card stock and ink it all with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Using the smaller rectangle die from Pocket Page Fillers 1, I cut a small plaid photo mat. Next I added all my pieces and only pop dotted Mrs. Clause and the rolling pin up top.
I hope you enjoyed todays blog post with my take on the #decemberdbd day #23, keep on eye out for my other pages that I will be posting on the ECD Planners & Journaling Page.
Hello all, Katie here thank you for joining me with todays blog post! I always love winter for hot chocolate, coffee or some yummy beverage to keep myself warm as we are getting very cold here in Alberta, Canada! So grab a cup of hot coffee and lets get started!
Step 1: Start with cutting out your images form Jack Frost and Warm Winter Mug from your favorite Cardstock. Next I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Oops I just noticed my holly was flipped upside down for the picture) and assemble your pieces.
Step 2: Out of the new Nested Tags Set cut out two of the largest tags, I used my scoring tool and created a crease at the top, this will create the fold to make this into a card base. Next, I used a 3D embossing folder to create a pattern on my tag, then I lightly inked it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
Step 3: Assemble your card as per the picture above, I pop dotted the mug on top of the snowman.
Step 4: After I have assembled my card front I attached the back of the card to the card front and folded slightly at the score line.
Step 5: My favorite part is speckling the card front with Heavy White paint.
Thank you for joining me today, I hope my post brought you some inspiration!
Happy crafting all and stay warm! till next time >Katie<
Hi Everyone, Katie here thank you for joining me with todays blog post! I am super excited to show you this amazing new stocking die from Joset’s new Christmas Collection, and of course I am using a ton of glitter. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and lets get started!
Step 1: Cut your stocking from your favorite card stock, next selected a 3D embossing folder and run it through your machine to give it some dimension. Next, I took my Vintage Photo Distress Ink and lightly inked the 3D pattern.
Step 2: Next apply your 2-way adhesive onto your strip of white cardstock and cut your stocking trims. I then peeled back the adhesive backing and add your choice of glitter. I used green for this sample but on my card I used Cool White Microfine glitter. (There are so many beautiful glitter choices)
Step 3: After you have assembled your stocking, cut your card front bases.
Cut your white base 4 1/4 “x 5 3/4 “and stamp your sentiment on the bottom from Joset’s new Holiday sentiments, I used “Christmas Magic”. Cut your green mat 4 1/2″ x 6″ , red mat 4 3/4″ x 6 1/4″ and your card base 6 1/2″ x 10″ scored @ 5″ 1/2″. Assemble your card as per the picture.
Step 4: With the same process by applying adhesive to card stock I cut out some holly leaves and berries from Winter Greens and applied glitter.
I pop dotted my stocking to the front of the card, added my glitter holly, added gems and speckled with white acrylic paint.
And we are done, I hope you enjoyed todays block post! I look forward to my next months post using Joset’s new Character Mrs. Clause creating a super cute baking Planner Essential page.
