Cardmaking Joset Designs Planner Essentials

December delivery

November 15, 2023

Hii everyone, how are you doing? It’s blog time for me today. I’m busy with the Christmas cards and projects. Today I share this card with you which I made with the postage stamp dies from the Planner Essentials.

I started with the base so I used the postage stamp dies (Planner Essentials). It is green paper from one of the Reminiscene books and sand looking paper from Reminiscene the book 6. I inked all the edges with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

As you can see I used some small dies from Joset’s collections to fill the rectangles. Some parts I coloured by myself with Distress Ink and for some parts I used designpaper like the Holly Jolly Christmas and the Christmas Lives Here.

I also did some stamping, some are light at the background. You can do that to do the first stamp at another sheet and then making the stamp at your papier. Some stamps are directly stamped at the paper.

I hope you got some ideas to make cute Christmas cards. And as you can see at the picture a little bit above you can also use some pieces of this whole card.

Thank you for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Hii everyone, welcome to this blogpost.

This is an exciting week because the newest release from Joset is here. It is such a cute and great release. For this post I had a fun play time with it.

I started with the mason jar, one mason jar with the pretty pastels paper without window and one with corrugated cardboard with window. As you can see at the pictures I cut the pieces with the holes for the planner and inked the edges.

At the back of the corrugated cardboard I put some double sided adhesive and add some acetate. I made snow with the slimeline adventure dies and soft finish cardstock. I only adhere this at the sides and bottom. Now I can still put things between the layers if I want.

I put the signpost with a cute stamp from the new release in front of the snow. At the lid I adhere a piece of ice from the Igloo dies set. I cut a small piece from the lid away so it’s only ice on top.

Than the cute bear. I made a polar bear with soft finish cardstock and distress ink.

The bear is holding a fishing rod. That is a dies from the camping accessoires. I put a small black twine at the and so it will looks like he is fishing.

I put some shaker material and the twine between the 2 layers from the mason jar. I think the polar bear has a special fish, don’t you think?

I hope you like this post and got some new ideas.

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

October 4, 2023

Hi everyone,

Today I want to share you this project with the new special kit from Esther. I had a fun play time with this kit. You can make an easy card with the planner dies.

I started with the base planner dies (Planner Essentials 56) and of course the new paperpad Petal Pink. At the top I adhere the new frame dies. It is a great dies for small pictures or sentiments. But I only made the word ‘weekend’ which came in the set to.

I used the cute clips from the heart overlay dies set to hang on the letters.

In this set there are also small start to put on the stars at the page. You can make them in every colour you want. I choosed pink from the newest paperpad.

I adhere the letters with twine in a half heart shape. At least I added a small tag and some reinforcers. At the back I will adhere some pictures of the Dutch Planner retreat.

I hope you will have a lot of fun with this kit to. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon.

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Good cluck

September 20, 2023

Hii everyone,

I hope you’re all doing fine. Today I’m here to share a new small project with different collections from Elizabeth Craft Design. This week is the release of the new florals collection. I used the basket from one set for the cute ducks.

For the base I used the Stitched Indented Rectangle, kraft cardstock and paper from the Pretty Pastels paperpad. The edges are inked with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

I made the basket from the Floral Foliage 1 with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. I used some small fasteners from Tim Holtz to make it look real.

At the top I did some inking with blue so it looks like water.

I made the cute ducks and cornfields also from Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. The smaller ducks are in the basket in the water.

At the top I did some stamping with the life is better on the farm stamp. I realy like the fishtail banners with stitching. They are perfect for the stitched rectangle.

I hope you like this post and got an idea with the basket.

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Cozy winter

September 6, 2023

Hii everyone,

Here is a new blogpost from me. I’m totally in the Christmas Mood. A little while ago I made a Christmas Foodtruck during a Facebooklive. Today I made an another truck for the Christmas Season. At this truck you can buy your Christmas tree in different sizes.

I started with the truck from the Foodtruck dies. I used paper from the Beautiful Brights and Pretty Pastels. I also colored some pieces with Distress Ink and Soft Finish Cardstock. In the truck I adhere a table and a Christmas tree. I also made a cash desk.

The wheels are from a stamp from the Planner Essentials ‘cozy days’. The trees on top of the truck are from the Sidekick Essentials.

The gnome bought this year a small Christmas tree. The gnome is made with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink.

The trees fits perfect in these milk cans. I wish I have this at my home. The milk cans are from the Farm Accessoires. I die-cut 8 milk cans. I adhere the top of 2 milk cans together so it can stand.

And at least this signboard. I also die-cut this part 2 times so I can make it stand.

When you put everything togehter, you get this little scenery. Now you can understand that there are more possibilities with the truck for this festival. So soon you will see more.

Thankyou for visiting and see you the next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Caterpillar farmer

August 16, 2023

Hii everyone, I’m here with a new blogpost. Fall is coming so it is time to make some fall pages. The caterpillar is very busy with his pumpkins.

I made a basic page with Sidekick Essentials 20. I made his land with the Slimeline Adventure Edges and adhere them at the smaller blue piece at the page. You can play with the different heights.

As you can see I made 4 different pieces land. If you used put some tape or glue at the sides and leave the top open, you can slide things between the layers.

I made a caterpillar farmer with ofcourse the caterpiller and the farmer. I only used the hat and the pitchfork. I used paper from the beautiful brights and pretty pastels for this cute one.

I adhere the caterpillar farmer as high as possible because I want to add a lot of pumpkins. I didn’t put glue behind the pitchfork so I can put a pumpkin under the fork.

I add different size pumpkins and leafs. I also put them between the layers as I said earlier. But when I finished this I missed something…. and no it’s not the reinforcers…..

I missed these swirls between the pumpkins. And I also adhere the reinforcers.

The page is done for me now, the caterpillar farmer needs to work hard for the pumpkin festival I think.

I will thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Buzzing to say ‘Hi!’

August 2, 2023

Hi everyone, here I am with a new blogpost. I guess that you all saw the new collection from Joset ‘Bugs and Butterflies. Today I share a Sidekick page with this collection. Because this collection is great for cards but also for planner pages for example if you don’t have a pictures.

Do you remember the honey Sidekick page. This is a perfect page in combination with the bee. I made the bee with the Pretty Pastels paperpad. The wings are made from vellum. Isn’t it a cutie?

I used Sidekick Essentials 4 and 13 for the base. The paper is from Reminiscene the Book 5 and 6. The edges are inked with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

I used the Number Reinforcer to do some stamping. I didn’t make a reinforcer of it, but as a decoration part behind the circle. This is a stamp from the Bugs and Kisses set.

I used the 2 biggest circles from Sidekick Essentials 4 to decorate the page. I adhere only the top part from the smalles circle so I can put something behind later. I also found a label from one of the books.

I made a cute ticket with the sentiment ‘Buzzing by to say ‘HI!’. I also stamped some part of the clover at the ticket and did some coloring. I adhere this ticket a little bit under the smallest circle.

At least I adhere the bee and put some leaves under the circle and ticket. I think the green is perfect for this page. And ofcourse I adhere some reinforcements.

Thank you all for visiting and reading! See you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Love this

July 19, 2023

Hi everyone,

I’m here for you today with a new blogpost. Today it is a sweet card with an ice cream. I will lead you step by step through this card.

I started with two tags from the Nested Tags dies. At the top I made a scoreline and adhere that small part together. You can see that line at the top. But you can still open it.

As base I used a piece of designpaper (Bellrose Pink) from 22 X 14 cm. I also cut a piece kraft cardstock from 22,5 x 14,5 cm. I also cut a piece designpaper from 5 x 16 cm and made a scoreline at 0,9 and 15,1 cm.

Now we adhere the 2 parts designpaper together. But you only adhere the small 0,9 cm and the back. So this piece is open to put things behind.

I cut out a piece of the designpaper and adhere this at the background. As you can see I also adhere the designpaper at the kraft.

I made a small cluster to add on the pink strip. All these elements are from the same paperpad.

Now it’s time to decorate the tags I made in the beginning. I cut a tag and numberstrip from the paperpad. I did some stamping at tickets and tabs and made a girl (the witch dies) with an ice cream. I used the donut from the Foodtruck Accessoires as reinforcer.

Adhere this at the front of the tag.

For the inside I cut out again a piece of the paperpad but also did some stamping with the good food good mood stamp. I made an bigger ice cream and ticket.

I also did some stamping and coloured 2 of them with a glitter pen.

Now I can slide one part of the tag under the stripe and one part above. You can unfold a part or you can take it all out.

Well I hope you enjoyed this project. I did when I was making. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards

Lisanne Geerdink

Happy anniversary

June 21, 2023

Hi everyone, welcome at this new blogpost. Today I want to share a project I made with my mother Petra Geerdink. My grandparents are celebrating there 60st anniversary so that means there is a party. We made 15 bottles to decorate the tables.

First we made the hearts with the Heart Cutout dies, the large numbers and the black Silk Microfine Glitter. We use the base heart and adhere some glitter at the numbers. We made two hearts so we can but a black pin between the layers.

The next one is a Stitched Rounded Rectangle with a picture of my grandparents 25th anniversary. The paper we used is from the Bellrose Pink paperpad. This one is realy simple but for the picture this is great.

For the back we used pink paper from the Bellrose Pink Paperpad so we can but the black pin between it.

Than the last one for in the bottle is the banner with a beautiful flower made by my mother ofcourse. For the flower she used Florals 21 with Distress Ink ‘Worn Lipstick, Aged Mahongany, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo and Bundled Sage. You will probably think why did you use Vintage Photo. Well that is for some spots at the leaves.

In the center we put some small black beads. We also used the leaves add ons at this banner. The banner is from the Suitcase kit. As you can see at the left side we made a black piece which fits perfectly from top to the bottum. We also use this piece to adhere the pin at the banner.

At least we made a fishtail around the neck of the bottle. For this piece we used the fitted fishtail and 3 different sentiments. Because we made 15 bottles and we want 3 different sentiments. We used the sentiments ‘special memory’, ‘happy anniversary’ and ‘joyful moments’.

For the finish and touch we made a waxseal and used some twine to put everything together.

So I think I told everything about these bottles we made. It was a lot of fun to make!

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Wishing you oceans of joy

June 7, 2023

Hii everyone,

Welcome at this new blogpost from me, Lisanne Geerdink. I made a sea/beach box for you this time. The weather is great to work with the sea collection from Joset. This blogpost will be full with step by step pictures because the box is made by myself. It is good to know that everything is in CM not inches.

So first we need a piece white cardstock from 9 x 30,5 cm and made scorelines at 9 cm and 18 cm.

At the same piece you have on the right a square from 9 cm x 9 cm. We need to cut out a window from 7 x 7 cm. This piece will be the back, bottum and front side.

Now we will cut the piece for the sides and top. For this part we need a piece of white cardstock from 28 x 10 cm. And we made a scoreline at 0,5 cm, 9,5 cm, 18,5 cm and 27,5 cm.

We also need to make two scorelines at the longest side at 0,5 cm and 9.5 cm. These lines will make the strip we can use to adhere everything together.

It is one long line now, we need to cut some pieces out of this line. You will see that in the next picture. All the grey parts need to cut out.

Now we need to make 5 squares with design papier from 8,9 x 8,9 cm. It is just a little bit smaller than the cardstock, but now it fits perfect. Two of this squares we adhere at the piece cardstock with 3 squares from 9 x 9 cm. It is also smart to put the double sided adhesive at all the strips, that will be easier later.

We also need a piece acetate from 8 x 8 cm. We will adhere this at the part we cut out a window.

Now we can adhere some parts together. You lay the piece with the window at your desk. First I adhere one strip at the left side at the bottom and the back. Once you do this you can adhere the three other strips. You have the box like the picture below.

Now we can put the pieces design paper in the box at the sides, bottom and top so you don’t see the stripes anymore. I also put a piece from the Mason Jar at one design paper. Now it looks like reef.

Now it is decorate time. So I coloured some weed, the sea turtle and the whale with Distress Ink for inside the box. I adhere these parts with the pop-up dies. You only need the put these dies through your machine with cardstock and cut the pieces out. Than you have one rectangle with a scoreline.

At the window I adhere sand that imagine the bottom of the sea. I used the dies from the sea weed set. In this set are also stones and weed. I coloured this also with Distress Ink and adhere this. Now we can adhere the front with window at the box. I also cut out a piece design paper from 9 x 9 cm and made the same window in it (7×7 cm).

I cut out 3 pieces from 9 x 9 cm, two for the left and right side and one for the top. For the back you need a piece of 9 x 12,4 cm. I made the oyster shell as base for the top of the box.

I made the light house and the sand crab for the beach part. Also with some shells and the sentiment ‘wishing you oceans of you’.

At least I put a shell and anchor at the front of the window. Now is everything done. I had so much fun making this project.

I hope you enjoyed it to, thanks for watching and see you next time!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink
