Fala Planner Page

November 26, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Fala Planner Page.

To create my Falala Planner Page, I’ve used a variety of the dies from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my planner page at home.

Step One. From the Planner Essentials 35 – Holiday Tab Pages, die cut the page with the tab out of a piece of red patterned paper. Apply Emboss It Ink to the star border stamp from the Planner Essentials Reindeer Mail and stamp randomly on the page as desired. You’ll need to stamp the border three more times. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Sprinkle Charred Gold Embossing Powder over the stamped images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut the snowflake reinforcements from the Planner Essentials – Reinforcement Pack 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need a total of four reinforcements.

Step Three. Choose two pieces of co-ordinating Christmas patterned paper. From the first patterned paper, die cut a 3″ Stitched Indented Rectangle. From the second patterned paper, die cut a 2 3/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle. Distress the edges of both rectangles. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Die cut a 2 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle out of a piece of Kraft Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the It’s a wonderful stamp from the Planner Essentials – Reindeer Mail stamp set and stamp on the rectangle. Sprinkle Golden Rod Molten Dimensions Embossing Powder over the stamped image. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials 13 – Xmas Winter Insert die, die cut the trees out of a piece of green patterned paper or dark green cardstock. Ink the edges of the trees using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Planner Essentials 13 – Xmas Winter Insert die, die cut the deer out of a White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the entire surface of the deer. Ink the edges of the deer using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. Choose a third piece of co-ordinating Christmas patterned paper. From the Planner Essentials 14 – Bookmark 1 die, die cut the plain ornament out of the patterned paper. Cut the ornament in half. Ink the edges of both halves using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Apply Forest Moss Distress Ink to the Fala stamp from the Planner Essentials – December Moments stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the word into a strip. Distress the edges of the strip. Ink the edges of the strip using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. From the Planner Essentials 12 – Arrow Page & Trees die, die cut the three stars out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to all three stars. Sprinkle Charred Gold Embossing Powder over the three stars. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Once the stars have cooled, ink the edges of the stars using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Ten. Adhere the snowflake reinforcements over top of the holes on the page.

Step Eleven. Adhere the 2 3/4″ rectangle to the 3″ rectangle. Adhere the left half of the ornament 1/2″ from the top and 3/8″ from the left of the rectangle. Adhere the right half of the ornament 1 3/8″ from the top and 1/2″ from the right of the rectangle. Foam square the 3″ rectangle 3/8″ from the top and 7/8″ from the left of the page.

Step Twelve. Foam square the 2 1/2″ rectangle to the 2 3/4″ rectangle. Adhere the trees to the bottom of the page as desired. Adhere the deer to the bottom right side of the 2 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the Fala word strip to the left of the deer.

Planner Essentials Sidekick Essentials

Sidekick page

November 18, 2020

That big cross by 2020, pffff, what a year this has been! I sincerely hope that for everyone the coming year things will get better. Maybe that’s why I’ve already created my 1st page for my planner for 2021.

With the new collection for the regular size planner I would almost forget that I also have the sidekick! And I like that format so much, just to schedule! So for next year I’m going to use my sidekick for making plans and my regular planner for memories.

For this page I used the beautiful paper of Esther’s Reminiscence, there are so many beautiful colors in it that it is useful for everything. For the page itself I used S.E. (Sidekick Essentials) 4. I also used S.E.1, S.E.3 and S.E.8 for the decoration.

Some details I edited with distress ink and glaze embossing powder in the color crackling campfire.

The decoration is also meant to be a bit playful, the little phone I added with the idea that I should call friends and family more often, to maintain the contact a bit more because I haven’t seen my family for almost a year now.

And the pawns, well, to also be a bit more playful/light-hearted to deal with the Corona rules, not to ignore them because that really can’t but occasionally someone may come to visit or I can visit them myself. I really miss the contacts with my friends and family. 

Let’s hope this year is over soon!

Actually, I want to say, life is good but you have to hang the garlands yourself. 

Maybe I should make that my life spell next year.

So the beginning in my planner for the new year has been made, good intentions? Hmmmm, I have to think about that. After all, I still have more than 6 weeks for that.

With love,

Marjolijn van Elsberg

Travel Fun

November 5, 2020

Karen here! I recently decided to planner/scrapbook all of the places I’ve been. We can’t travel much these days, so I thought it’d be fun to re-live some of the fun trips I have taken. Today’s post shows a page I created for a fun day-trip into Maryland.

Steps to create this page:

  • Cut page base with the page die from Planner Essentials 27. (Hint: Because I was using single sided paper, I adhered two pages together back to back before die cutting.)
  • Stamp with oxide ink the splatters from the Background 2 Stamps in a random pattern at the top and bottom.
  • Add striped washi tape along the edge and add letter stickers.
  • Add dashed lines across top and bottom with fine-line black marker.
  • Add a 1/2 circle cut with the Stitched Circles dies and a hexagon with the Stitched Hexagon dies.
  • Stamp “Funny Detail” from the Retro Labels Sayings stamps.
  • Add a Blooming Branches die cut using Kids choice glue.
  • Add reinforcements die cut the 101mm Double Sided Adhesive from the Reinforcement Variety Pack.

The backside of my page was created using many of the same products. What a fun way to celebrate a fun day with my friend in the beautiful state of Maryland.

Craftily yours, Karen

Fall in Greenville Planner Pages

November 4, 2020
Hello everyone, Annette Green here to welcome in Fall with a fun layout in my Greenville planner. Being a Florida girl most of my life, I’m really enjoying the change of season here in South Carolina and am snapping pictures all the time. I hope you join me as I share how these pages came together.
I began on the back page of my last page in my planner which is this fruity, earthy paper. The right page is from the Worn Wood collection and cut from the Planner Essentials 1 page die.
I die-cut these fun little reinforcers in two colors for each page from the Reinforcement Variety Pack. I love how they’re wavy and irregular.
October is die-cut from the Planner Months set, the truck (I love this die!) is from Planner Essentials 16, and the three pumpkins are from Joset’s Scarecrow die. To make the pumpkins a little smaller in scale, I simply trimmed off the outer edges.
To give them a little more dimension, I used a brown marker to mark the indentations in each pumpkin. A quick smudge with my finger along the drawn lines gives them a rough, natural look.
After adhering the truck, wheels and pumpkins onto my page, I die-cut the green stems from Joset’s Pumpkins set and adhered them in place.
Next I die-cut the large rectangles using the Planner Pocket 4 set and from the same set, I cut the downward arrow element for the right page. October is mounted to a green label, die-cut from the Planner Labels set, and finally I die-cut and watercolored some leaves from the Pumpkins set.
Here’s a closer look at some of those leaves.
Using the smaller frame from the Planner Essentials 1 set, I die-cut two green frames and also my photos. After adhering them together, I added them to my page.
I repeated the steps for my right page, switching up the frame color.
To finish off my pages, I die-cut two tag shapes from Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces and added the woodgrain papers. From a scrap pieces of cardstock, I die-cut the notebook page (also from PE 21) and cut the dotted strip off the right edge.
After snipping the dotted strip in two, I added them to my tags and topped off the tag holes with a brown pearl gem. I’ll add journaling to my tags later, but for now my pages are done. I hoped you’ve enjoyed them and are also enjoying this beautiful Fall season. Thanks for following along.

Happy Day!

November 2, 2020

Oh Happy Day!! That’s exactly what I thought when I saw the new collection for the Planner Essentials. So many amazing new dies, it was hard to choose which one to use first because everything is equally fun. So quickly into my hobby loft!

This page I made with the Planner Essentials 28 – Globe, I love it!! The page itself has a very nice edge. The globe can be die cut in various ways. For this page I chose to punch the sphere out of the paper and then make a pocket with it. How I did that you can see in the pictures below.

The tickets in the pocket I made using Planner Essentials – 30 Wave pocket. I also used the nice sentiment die included in this set. The paper is from the new collection as well and called Reminiscence “the book”, so incredibly beautiful!!

The label is from an older set “Planner labels” and so are the reinforcements, although there is also a very nice new set with another 12 super fun new ones!

On the corner of the tag I made a mini pocket with the text where I can place the smaller tag behind. Ohh and those cute little birds, they’re also from Elizabeth Craft Designs (CS027 – Feathered Friends Clear Stamps).

And that’s how I made the pocket with the globe. First, I die cut the globe out of a piece of cardstock that is big enough to die cut a pocket with. Then I put about a third of the sphere with the circular die and take my pocket die to die cut.

I hope that I inspired you a little bit and that you will have as much fun with the new dies as I did!

With love,

Marjolijn.
