Planner Essentials Sidekick Essentials

Planted with love

March 3, 2023

Hi all, it is Lisanne here with a new sidekick page. This time it is in the pink colours with the beautiful Bellrose pink paperpack. It is a page who you can make very fast, but I still like the result.

First a base page with the wave pocket on top of it. If you adhere everything as a pocket you can put many things in there. In the last pocket I put a sentiment strip in it. Great set to put in there. I also add some cute paperclips from Sidekick Essentials 14.

In the smallest pocket I put a small file folder from Sidekick Essentials 14 and also a small plant from the scallop insert. In combination with the cute girl it is a cute part of the page.

Only the reinforcers at the page and everything is ready.

I hope you like the post! See you next time.

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Love grows here

February 17, 2023

Hi everyone! It is Lisanne here today with a new blogpost. It is a few days ago when it was 14 february but I think loving someone can be at any day.

Let’s start with the background I made at the Fitted Rounded Rectangle. I used a stencil from the Planner Stencils 1 and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. I also inked the edged and make some lines at the background.

After that I made all the elements for this card. I started with the hay ride. Everything is inked with Distress Ink at the Soft Finish Cardstock.

I made the scarecrow as a boy and a girl. For the girl I used hair from the Holiday Elf Hers.

When I adhere the Hay ride at the card I missed something. I added some hay at the Hay ride.

The two scarecrows are in the car and I think they like each other.

At least I added a fishtail with the sentiment ‘love grows here’.

I hope that you like this cute card with the two scarecrows who fall in love with each other.

Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Dreams come true

February 3, 2023

Hii all! It is me again, Lisanne. Today I made a sweet card with some old and new products. I used the newest paperpad Bellrose Pink. I love the colours.

For this card I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangle as base dies. The paper I use is Bellrose Pink. At the background I used a mask stencil with Walnut Stain Oxide.

I also did some stamping with the newest stamps from Esther. Aren’t they great?

I love to make a background with stencils and stamps. When you do it this way you need to think how you want to build the card. I knew that I want to use a tag so I lay this at my card. Now I can see where I want to stamp.

Here you can see the tag which is in the Bellrose Pink paperpad. I also adhere a tab and a small circle at the top. After that I made the mushroom from the once upon a time accessoires. It is all made from designpaper.

At least I made the base with the paperpad and Stitched Rounded Rectangle. I also did some stamping at the fishtail with the once upon a time sentiments.

I hope you liked the post and have some new ideas. Thankyou for visiting and have a great day!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

January 20, 2023

Hi all! I’m here with a page in my little book which I made last year. It is a project with small pages because I used the Arrow Insert Dies. Great for a little book!

If you use the Arrow Insert dies you get a page. But if you trim this in half you can make a lot of different combinations. First I stamped at the open arrow with CS215, just lightly.

At the back of the open arrow I made a little scene with the Slimline Adventure Edges and the Ducks. I adhere this at with some double sided adhesive.

At the tab on top I did some stamping ‘enjoy today’. Now it is time to make it into a shake card.

At the back I put some double sided adhesive at all the sides and adhere acetate. After that I need to put some double sided adhesive again at the acetate. Now you need the do this against each other so the shaker material can’t fall out.

I also adher a daffodil on top of the page and of course a reinforcer from the third set.

It is a short post but I hope you liked it.

Thankyou for visiting!

See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Hello life

January 6, 2023

Hi all! It’s Lisanne here with my first blogpost for this year. I start this year with a new weekly planner page. I will make a page of every week and when I have a busy week I can always make more pages later. Every month I start with a month page and that is the page I want to share with you today.

I started with the Planner Essentials 1 and paper from Reminiscene the book 5. I also used the prompts and for this month it is Vintage. In this page you see a lot of vintage in the colors I’m using.

The next step is making a label with a stencil, ink and a reinforcer. I also used a stencil using a die from File Folder Set 2. Before I folded everything together I used the same stencil twice. The first layer is inked and for the next layer I put the same stencil a little bit different with a little bit more ink. In this piece I put the word ‘January’ and a little tab.

To fill the page, I used the Library Pocket Filler Cards. The paper is also from Reminiscene book 5. One is light Brown and one is dark brown. At the light brown card I did some stamping with CS212. Just play with stamping light and dark. In one tab I stamped ‘Hello Life’ from CS252.

Now I started to adhere everything together. First the dark brown Library Card with on top the label. You can see I made 2023 with some branches. I also adhere the reinforcements because I will adhere straight to the holes.

The next layer is the light brown card with the stamping. Now you can see why I did the reinforcers before I adhere this part.

At least I made the cute Squirrel with some flower. I adhere the part with the month January and some branches and flowers. I’m happy with the first month page of this year.

The last close-up picture from the cute Squirrel!

Thank you all for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Here comes Santa Claus

December 23, 2022

Hi all! I’ll hope you all doing fine and almost ready for Christmas. Today you can read my last blogpost for this year. It is a little bit Christmas but also a little bit winter.

This card is a slimline card with some moving parts. For the base you need the dotted background. The top is inked with Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass.At the bottom I die-cut the Slimline slider.

I want to let the ice with the pinguin move so I need 2 circles at the back and some foam tape. I will show you that in the next picture.

Now you can see the circles with foam tape. The foam tape makes it easier to move. Before you adhere the ice you need to be carefull with the bottom. You need to look at the lowest place.

After that I made a bigger card as background. Before you adhere this, take a look at the next picture because we need again some foam tape now.

You put some foam tape at the sides but also in the middle. Again make sure to watch if the circles don’t hit the foam tape otherwise the slider don’t work.

Now you can adhere the bigger card. And is it time to decorate.

I made a pinguin who made a campfire and hanging his stocking at the board. Will Santa comes to his place?

I hope you like this card and have an idea of making these cute slider cards.

Thank you for visiting and see you next year!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Let the fun begin

December 9, 2022

Hi all, It is finally time to work with the prompts for December. This time I really wanted to play with the TN. It is a great size but also good to combine with the dies from Joset.

For this page I used the paper from Esther (Christmas Lives Here) and Soft Finish Cardstock. I used the straight page die and tore some Soft Finish Cardstock as snow.

On the left and right side I added a sentiment. This is a die from the Sidekick Essentials with holes but I trimmed the holes so I only have the sentiment.

I also die-cut some trees from the Sidekick Essentials. I used the two different sizes but also adhered them in different lengths. The snow layer is only adhered at the sides so I can put the trees behind the layer.

After that I made the Gnome using the paper from the Christmas Lives Here. Isn’t it a cute one.

And at the left I wrote the prompt at the signpost. Only adding some flakes for the snowy look and the page is done.

I hope you got some ideas. Thank you for visiting!

See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Jellie’s Christmas house

November 28, 2022

Hii all, it is almost the best time of the year in my opinion. If I aks my nephew he would say the same. The card that I’m sharing with you today is a birthday card for him. He love his cat Jellie and like Christmas. That’s for me 2 good things to combine.

For this card I use the beautiful Christmas Lives Here and some Soft Finish Cardstock for the cat.

I started with a stitched hexagon as base.

Instead of a doghouse I made a cat house. When you use this dies you only made the green part. I adhere some black paper so it looks more like a closed house.

After that I made the red parts and made some Christmas lights. The ligths are a dies from de Holiday Bird House. It brings me into the Christmas mood. I made some sparkling Christmas lights with the Silk Microfine Glitter. Just die-cut the lights with some double sided adhesive at the top. That is why I can put some glitter at it and rub it to the tape.

Now the cat is still missing. My nephew have a cat named Jellie. He is black with white and some green/yellow eyes. He is wearing a party hat from the party time dies.

When I finished everything the background was empty. It was a little late when I think about making a background with a stencil. So I did it very carefully at the sides.

I hope you like this blogpost and get some ideas.

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne

Hi all! It is time for a new blogpost from me. This time I share a birthday card for my grandfather.

I started with a piece of woodgrain paper from Tim Holtz. I coloured it with Distress Stain Spray (Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap). I also added Distress Oxide Ink Brushed Corduroy and Ground Espresso. And at least I used the Distress Crayons Ground Espresso and Anitque Bronze for some highlights.

I had the idea to use vellum but only vellum without stamping. But when I did some stamping I loved it. First I stampeld with some gold ink and stamp CS234. After that I stamped some words in it with the monthly overview (CS252). I added the vellum on top of the Woodgrain Cardstock.

I also used the banner from Planner Essentials 42.

The next step is making the age of my grandfather with some pieces from Reminiscene the book 3. I made a small group with the numbers.

This group comes behind the frame from Planner Essentials 42. Just adding a reinforcement and some hemp cord. At least I put some black cardstock behind the Woodgrain Cardstock.

I’ll hope you got inspired by this card! Thankyou for watching/reading and see you the next time.

Kind regards Lisanne

Label box

October 27, 2022

Hii all!

I’m here today with a new blogpost. I am very excited about this project because I can use a lot of different things. I used a Vignette Box from Tim Holtz filled with dies from Esther and Joset. It is such a fun project to fill.

As you can see I used a lot of different base dies. I used the cutting tags from the paperpad Christmas Lives here, Planner Essentials 42 (shapes, frames and words), the Library Pocket Filler Cards and the Nested Tags from Joset (1998). With these dies you can make a lot of different combinations. So let’s start with the first one.

I used the paper from Christmas Lives Here to start with. For this card I also used some corrugated cardboard and tear that. At the back I used a stencil with some icicle texture paste. Adhere the corrugated cardboard, a label and some holly with berries.

At the back I only made the lantern from the Lantern Page.

For the next card I stamped with the Peace and Joy stamp, Versamark and some red Embossing Powder. It is not that tight, but I like this for now. At the right I made a little tab.

At the back I used the stamp Crayons with Journaling Cards and another Holly with berries.

The next card is made with the Frames from Planner Essentials 42. Just die-cutting the full card with the beautiful bird and added a frame.

At the back of the frame I did some stamping, used an older label and added some tab behind the label. I also used the small trees from the Sidekick Essentials. And ofcourse some sparkling.

For the next card I started with some stencil and Ink for the background, added a part of the tree page and a small Nutcracker.

And at the back also some stamping with embossingpowder, some gifts and a stamped paperclip. I really love to make combinations with dies and stamps.

And last but not least I made these two tags with Santa and Mrs. Santa.

I think I told you everything for now haha. It is a long post this time, but I had some much fun making and sharing this. Below this post you can see all the used products.

Thankyou for visiting!

Kind regards
