It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you the step by step tutorial for this Art Journal Page.
Step 1: Creating the Basic Texture
apply Prima Marketing transparent 3D Matte Gel through the heart portion of the Make your Mark stencil onto a panel of watercolor paper
Step 2: Adding Color and more Texture
adhere some torn washi tape strips to the page
let Distress Stains (Cracked Pistachio, Gathered Twigs) drip down the page
add some Prima Marketing white Heavy Gesso to random spots
apply Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot to the xo part of the Make your Mark stencil with a Mini Ink Blending Tool
ink up the edges with that same black ink
water-down some of the black ink and add some splatters
Step 3: Adding a Die Cut and a Sentiment
cut out the beautiful Mandala from kraft cardstock
add Prima Marketing Metallique Wax Bronze Age and white gesso to grunge it up a little
the sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Big Chat Sticker set
I hope you got inspired.

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Inspire Gift Tag.
To create my tag, I’ve used a variety of the dies, stamp and stencil from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as a couple of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.
Step One. Die cut the small tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the stripe portion of the Make Your Mark stencil on the middle of the tag. Using a palette knife, put Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Remove the stencil. Once the paste has dried, ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Next, you’ll need two coordinating patterned papers. Die cut the small note piece from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the stitched rectangle from the same die out of the second piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of both pieces, using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. From the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die, die cut the curly arrow out of kraft cardstock.
Step Four. From the Blooming Branches die, die cut one branch out of book page and die cut the other branch out of black cardstock.
Step Five. Die cut the stitched label from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tags & Toppers out of a third coordinating pattern paper piece. From the same die, die cut the inspire word out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the label using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Six. From the Planner Essentials – 8 die, die cut one of the reinforcements out of black cardstock. Cut the reinforcement so that it fits over the circle on the tag and the top ends at the top of the tag.
Step Seven. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the leaves stamp from the First Sights of Spring stamp set and stamp onto a piece of watercolour paper. Colour the leaves in using a waterbrush and the Watercolor Palette. Once the image has dried, fussy cut the image out. Ink the edges of the image using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Cut a piece of burlap that measures 1 3/4″ x 3″.
Step Nine. Adhere the reinforcement circle to the tag. Adhere the burlap 1/4″ from the left and 1/4″ from the bottom of the tag.
Step Ten. Adhere the stitched rectangle 3/8″ from the left side and 1/4″ from the bottom of the note piece. Foam square the note piece 3/8″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the tag. Adhere the arrow to the left hand side of the stitched rectangle.
Step Eleven. Adhere the label 3/4″ from the left and 1/8″ from the bottom of the note piece. Adhere the heart branch to the middle of the label. Adhere the other branch 1/2″ from the left and 1/8″ from the bottom of the note piece.
Step Twelve. Foam square the leaves image to the middle of the branches. Adhere the inspire word to the right hand side of the stitched rectangle and note piece.
Step Thirteen. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the whole the top of the tag.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Inspire Gift Tag.

This time I created a page in my cooking planner! For now, my beautiful blue, turquoise planner has become my personal cookbook where I can collect my own favorite recipes.
Here is the first page that I created for my personal cookbook. For this page I used the Planner Essentials 19 – Recipe Book and Planner Essentials 4. For the back, I first cut a page using P.E. 4, then draw with a pencil the contour of the P.E. 19 en cut it by hand. On this page I printed the recipe.
I glued the pages together so that there’s a pocket between the pages to put a tag in.
The holes are finished with the reinforcers included in the Planner Essentials 7 set. On the tags I wrote the shopping list and a list of the ingredients used. I also added the pocketholder ( I gave it that name 😉) from Planner Essentials 2 to the front to put one of my tags in.
I hope you are a little bit inspired by this page.
