Celebrate

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

Splash Attack

July 29, 2022

Karen here. I am having such a fun time with the Monster Party dies and decided to recreate the Whale as a monster as an embellishment to my splash attack day scrapbook/planner page. My boyfriend’s dog loves to bite at the splashes and has a really sweet underbite, so I thought this whale monster fit perfectly.

First thing I did was create the waves and this sweet monster. For all of it, I used 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The monster is a combination of the Whale (body and fins) and the Monster 1 (face). I used Black Soot distress ink to color him up and cut the teeth in “half” and turned them upside down to create the underbite. The cut the eyes and teeth with the 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock backed with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make them easy to adhere. The waves are cut from the Ocean Edges dies after coloring up the paper by smooshing it into distress oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon. The waves crashed over the whole on the planner page, so I just repunched it after attaching them in layers.

I added my splash monster and wave embellishments to a Planner Essentials 2 page cut from dark blue cardstock. The letters on this page are from Planner Essentials 37. I used scrap pieces I had from the Mystical Winter paper to add a bit of pattern to the page. The page tab is from the Planner Essential 4 set and are stamped with a stamp from the Moods set.

More fun on the back of the page. For the journaling here, I printed the journal and cut with a die from the Planner Label set. And, of course, I had to add some fun reinforcements to finish up my pages.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Sweet ‘n Scary

July 28, 2022

Hi all, hope you’re doing all fine and ready for a new blogpost. It is my turn again today so I made a planner page with the lovely monsters from Joset. It is a great collection for making cards, but also great for using in a planner.

So let’s start with the page. I used the base page without tab at it (1604). It is an older dies but I think some of you have it. Above this base page I adhere the splatter page. It is just a beautiful pages that give something special. The paper I used is from Reminiscene the book 4. For the next steps I lay everything at the page and when I’m happy with it I adhere all together.

The background was very clean for me so I cut out two tags which came out the Reminiscene book 4. I als trimmed of a piece paper which I teared at the sides. Now it looks like 2 pockets with tags. Just putting a reinforcement and some hemp cord at the tags and I can adhere it. I also adhere the reinforcements at the page before everything is covered.

All the edges are coloured with Distress Ink Black Soot.

Now we can make the picture frames. The Planner Filmstrip dies (1656) has 2 frames, one with tab and one without. I die-cut this from black and kraft paper so I can make combine this together.

Behind the frames I adhere some paper so I can add pictures later. In the Splatter page set there are flowers in it. I used this as decoration at the frames. In the flowers I add the fallen pieces from the reinforcements.

I adhere the frame a little diagonally. And then the monsters. This monster is a combination from monster 2 and 3. I used the belly, tooth and wings from monster 2, the eyes from monster 3 and the nose from the party time set. The tooths are great as hair. All these elements are coloured with Distress Ink.

Isn’t this a cute one? Now then you’ll find the next one even as cute. This is monster 2 with his hat, big feets and hands who hold the frames. He even has a little flower at the top of his hat.

Then the last frame. This frame is without the tab, but I put a little filmstrip piece between the frame.

For me it gives a little bit extra. At the bottom of the frame I adhere a piece from the Reminiscene book and an arrow. Also at this frame I adhere some flowers. Oh and I totally forgot to say, before I adhere the frames to the pages I stamped some sentiments from the Monster hugs at it.

So I think I told you everything about this page, hopefully you liked it and got some ideas to.

Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Notecard

July 25, 2022


Hello everyone, It’s Marjolijn here today on the blog with a cute notecard! With all the new releases that have come and still to come, we sometimes forget all those very nice dies and stamp sets that we already have. This week I made a notecard for a pocket on a page. I hope to inspire you a bit to use your dies in different ways. Often you don’t see the details because there is so much to see on a whole page. So for this blog post I created a notecard and will show you how I made it.

The frontside of the notecard
And the back of the notecard

Super handy for some extra journaling and that photo can still be pasted in.

The materials used

Make the notecard with the correct dies, there is a supply list at the bottom. Die-cut from soft finish cardstock and use the smooth side! Cut a 3″x4″ or 10×7.5cm blank card.

Stamp the stamps “notecard and the pin” on the front of the Polaroid frame (note-pieces). Sprinkle transparent embossing powder over it and heat it with the heat tool, then the stamp stays nice black and it gets some shine and volume. The other card gets the stamp with the lines, I didn’t emboss it.

Edit the Polaroid frame with distress ink and a stencil from the planner series (stencil set 2). I used the colors speckled egg and faded jeans.

The card with the note ribbons also got some distress ink speckled egg on the front. To do this, I angled the stencil. If you place a photo in it later you will not see it but for now I thought it was a nice effect. The side with the lines is decorated with speckled egg in the middle and the edges are finished with faded jeans.

The small arrow is also worked with faded jeans, the other parts with crackling campfire. But of course you can use your own matching colors for such a card.

The outer edges of the Polaroid frame were given a layer of double-sided tape 3mm. PAY ATTENTION! Do not glue the rest because then the mini tag will not go in.

Slide the arrow under the edge at the back. It is already secured with the tape. Then stick the card with the lines behind it so that the diamonds at the front are in the frame. Turn the card over and stick the second arrow over the other arrow. I worked with glue so that you can slide a little if it is not quite in the right place. Stick the camera in the right corner at the front, but in such a way that no glue gets on the opening. You slide the tag in loosely, you can later stamp a date on it or something similar.

So you can turn your dies into a nice notecard for your planner. I hope this gives you a little extra inspiration to look at your dies differently and especially to pick up your old sets because they are all so nice!!!

So just use it!

With love,

Halloween Mixed Media – Monster Mash!

July 20, 2022

Hi everyone, I wanted to get a jump start on my Halloween/Fall projects so I made this super fun but messy Monster Mixed Media Planner Pages. So Lets get started.

Step 1: You will need Tim Holtz Distress Sprays, I used Black Soot, Straw and Carved Pumpkin, but any combination will do. You will also need Rangers Heavy Watercolor Paper, Moon Mask, Planner Essentials 2, Water Spritzy Bottle and Heating tool.

Step 2: Cut your two planner pages using Planner Essentials 2 from the Ranger Heavy Watercolor Cardstock. next place you Lrg Moon Mask on the top part of your left hand page.

Step 3: Spray your Straw, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot as per the picture above, once you have finished. Carefully lift your moon mask.

Step 4: Once you moon mask has been lifted, heat set with your heating tool.

Step 5: Once your page is dry I lightly spritzed the center of my moon so the distress spray activates. I then spritzed the side spray on my mixed media mat and dabbed the center of my moon. For my right hand side page I spritzed with the straw, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot and dried it with my heating tool. (As per picture above)

Step 6: I cut out my Halloween Monsters from coordinating cardstock and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink or your choice of ink colors.

Step 7: Out of Planner Essentials Halloween Set 2, cut out your Haunted House, word and Number 31 from your choice of cardstock.

Step 8: Out of Planner Essentials 3 and heavy Black Card Stock cut out your Spider Web Frame and attach to your right hand side planner page.

Step 9: Once your Monsters are assembled, I attached my Haunted House down first, then my Monster Witch and Blue Pirate Monster the Cooking Pot was pop dotted on top of both monsters and the bat is attached with a small pop-dot to the top of the moon. (As per picture above)

Step 10: I matted the Halloween word onto Black and Lime Green Cardstock and attached to the top of my page. Next I attached my Monster Spider to the Web. I did not glue down the web as it leaves room to slide in a photo in the background.

Step 11: Add your reinforcement rings to both pages,

Step 12: And the best part is saved for last, I speckled both pages using a fan brush and heavy mixed media white paint.

I hope todays blog post brought you some inspiration and a little bit of Halloween Fun!

Thank you and Happy Crafting >Katie<

Joset Designs Planner Essentials Pop it Ups Scrapbooking Stamping Videos

Pop-Up Monster Mini Album

July 11, 2022
Hello, Annette Green here with a fun tutorial on how to make your own Halloween album with pop-ups, a Planner Essentials page die (#35) and of course the new release of Monster dies and stamps from Joset. I’ve got a video below taking you through all the assembly steps so I hope you have a moment to check it out.
Using the General Pop-Ups set (all links below) makes this a super easy and very impressive way to create interaction in this mini album. I’ve used Graphic 45 “Charmed” Patterns & Solids papers, but you can use whatever you have to recreate this.
Throughout the album, I’ve used lots of pieces from the new Party Time dies to create easy and fun embellishment on the pages.
The Monster Hugs stamp set is perfect with these cute monsters. I used one of the double pop-up dies here; one for the monster and one for the stamped expression.
Some of the photo mats, like the one shown here, are from the Stitched Indented Squares set. While some of the pop-up flaps open bottom to top, others open right to left like a card. You’ll have to watch the video to see who is behind this one!
I had the best time making these cute monsters. It’s really hard to stop! I hope you take a moment now to watch the video tutorial to see for yourself how easy this is to make. I hope you give it a try. Thanks for popping in today.

Holly Jolly, here is Santa!

June 28, 2022

Hello everyone, Marjolijn here today. Immediately when I saw the retro bus from Elizabeth Craft Designs I thought of a Christmas bus. Love Peace & Christmas. And how I like him. Santa is behind the wheel but when you open the map…

Ho-Ho-Ho!!!! Look who’s there!!!

How cute is he? Below you see a working description of the card.

First I die-cut all parts from paper from Esther’s reminiscence book 1. Then all parts got an edge with frayed burlap

The card is made of white sturdy paper, I used DCP, you can also use ECD soft finish cardstock. Fold 30 x 15 cm paper in half and place the folded edge against the cutting line.

Unfold the card and punch out the windows, do not turn any further than just past the blue arrow.

Santa Claus is colored with brush markers.

Santa Claus is glued into the card so that he just barely fits behind the wheel. Then stick a piece of design paper over the reinforce holes and the steering wheel.

Stamp the text on the side. Special delivery, I cut the stamp in half for that.

I cut off the stars.

On the inside I punched out the parts of which you can see the back of the paper again and glued them over it. On the front I made the lighting with some snow stars and glued the small cut stars on it. Finally, I twisted a string around the tree.

There’s no place like Gnome.

June 18, 2022
Gnome Planner pages!

Hi Everyone, Thank you for joining me today! As we are celebrating Father’s day on this Sunday I take time to be thankful for all types of families we are part of and how happy that there is no place like Gnome. Lets get started…

Gnomes

Step 1: Out of different colored cardstock cut out your gnomes, hills, flowers, fence, sky and cattails from Adventures Edges 2, Once up a time accessories and Gnomes. I inked the edges with coordinating distress ink just a shade darker to highlight your images. Once you have attached your images together and inked your edges, put aside.

Step 2: For the Second page cut out another mushroom, cattails, fence, hill and flowers from Adventures Edges 2 and Once Upon a Time Accessories from your choice of cardstock and ink the edges .

Step 3: Out of Planner Essentials 4 , cut out 2 planner pages from your choice of designer paper and ink your edges. As per the main image.

Step 4: Cut out your Mushroom House card, next out of the same color of card stock cut out your front part of your mushroom house and accessories, including the top, door, window, small mushroom, grass, flowers, butterfly (from Once Upon a Time Accessories) from your choice of cardstock. Once everything is cut I inked my edges with Brown Distress ink and assembled my pieces. I added the insert piece to the back of my house so I can add this insert to my planner book. In the inside of my mushroom house I added a photo mat for a 3×3 photo, a small mushroom, grass and a few flowers.

Step 5: Once all my pages have been assembled I will add my reinforcement rings and speckle my pages with white paint.

I hope you enjoyed my blog post, if you have any questions about my post please send me your question to Katie Porcina on FB.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day!

In The Jungle

June 17, 2022

Karen here. I’m creating a Planner Essentials book of my guy’s dog as a present to him. Sadie! She absolutely loves going through long walks and wanders through the tall grass trying to find critters to chase. I thought I’d use the Slimline Adventure Edges to create grass on the edge of my planner page!

I created the page by cutting a Planner Essentials 4 die using beige cardstock. I then put the Slimline Adventure Edges (Grass) and cut the edge. I also cut the edge from a pretty green cardstock that i had and trimmed it up close. I added the green die cuts to the edges on both sides of the planner pages.

I love how it came out. I also added with embellishment die cuts from the Floral Insert and Flower Power. I used a multiliner pen to outline the flowers. The letters are from the Planner Essentials 23. Cutting the letters and flowers with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive is so helpful in ensuring that these items with such thin lines are easy to adhere.

The back of the beige cardstock was dark grey. I love how the pretty purples and greens pop on this side including the fun reinforcements from the Reinforcement Variety Packs 1 and 2.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Tips on Catching up in your Scrapbook/Planner

June 13, 2022
Hello! Annette Green here today with some helpful tips on getting caught up in your scrapbook/planner. I am working in my 2021 planner and am making progress getting caught up, so if you are in the same situation, you may find this post and my video helpful.
There are a number of ways to speed up the process of getting caught up. One of the best ways is to utilize the new Pocket Pages. I alternated paper pages and pocket pages in my planner, but you can do ALL pocket pages to really make it easy and fast.
Another way to speed things up is to use stickers and cut-aparts from your paper collection. I used ready-to-go 3 x 4 cards and stickers from some Fall papers in my stash. This really helped the assembly go quickly.
Another way to make this process easy and quick is to utilize Planner Essentials dies, of course. The page dies are a great way to begin, then the little embellishment pieces like tabs, tags, labels and shapes are quick and easy decorative elements.
In the video I explain how I do the layering method where I begin with all of my base pages first, then add mats or frames for all my photos, then I size and print my photos, then add the final embellishments. By following this method I was able to complete the five layouts shown here in just an afternoon! I hope you take a moment to watch this “Craft With Me” style video and that you find it helpful. Thanks so much for stopping in today. Have a wonderful day!
