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!

Under The Sea

June 2, 2022

It’s me again, Els. It is already June and that means a new Month with new inspiration. This time I made a sea style card and below you will find the step by step instructions. I hope you have as much fun as I did making this card. Have fun creating!

Cut out the dies of white cardstock and the upper layers from silver cardstock. I didn’t used the fish and the binoculars.

Color the white cut-outs with Ink and glue the silver cardstock on top of them.

Cut a piece of white cardstock of 4″ x 8″ for a the card base and make a 21/4 inch hole in the center.

Glue the porthole over the hole on top the octopus with the helmet and below the shell and starfish.

Glue acetate behind the hole.

Put some rust paste on the porthole and the helmet and place some glossy accent drops on the acetate. Stamp some bubbles.

Put some glossy accent on the bubbles too and glue some prills down.

Stamp 2 Jellyfish on a light blue paper and stick it behind the porthole.

Take a piece of White Cardstock 41/4″ x 81/4″ and make a light construction where the Jelly fish are coming.

Then place the card back and adhere 3D foam behind that so the light has space enough.

Cut a fern and 5 flowers out of white cardstock and color them with Green and Blue ink, then shape them and put a blue stamen in the center hole.

Place the flowers as shown on the photo and then your card is finished! I hope you like the card and that you give it a try!

Cruising

May 31, 2022

Hello everyone, It’s Marjolijn here back on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. I am so in love with that little boat from the new Planner Essentials Suitcase set. It is so fun to play with! Making it is already a party and if you can also let the boat sail then it will be even more fun!!! So today I decided to make a fun card using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Pull Tabs die set to make this adorable boat sail. Let me show you how I created it.

Where does the boat sail to? The adventure awaits.

The elements from P.E. 48 have been used as reinforcements. Now this card is not going in my planner but I thought it was a nice idea.

The string runs from the anchor to the tab.

I used a black card as the background, which contrasts nicely with the blue.

And that’s how the card was made.

I die cut all the parts of the boat from white 250 grams DCP paper.

I colored all parts with Distress Ink. Antique linen, Pine needles, Faded jeans and Frayed burlap. I used frayed burlap for all the edges as well. After coloring I assembled the boat.

I used Frayed burlap Distress Ink for all the edges as well. After coloring I assembled the boat.

In the pictures above you can see all the other parts that I used for the card. First you apply the pull tab in the mermaid tail page. If you have never made a pull-tab card before, make sure yo watch this Facebook live video by Joset.

Fold the tab in half and stick the “cruising tab” (from book 4) on it. You do this in such a way that it is completely visible when you pull out the tab. Fold the remaining part and stick it so that the tab becomes extra sturdy. Then adhere the mermaid tail page on the middle of the card.

Adhere the boat on in such a way that when the tab is closed you can no longer see the opening underneath. I used the smallest strip. Then adhere the steering wheel, the fish and the anchor over the holes on the edge of the page, the starfish gets a spot at the bottom left. Adhere the stamp between the starfish and the anchor. Make a double card, about 1 cm larger, from black cardstock and adhere your card on it. Now your card is ready 🙂

I hope you enjoyed creating this card as much as I did!

Greetings,

Marjolijn

Take it easy

May 26, 2022

Hi all! I have a new planner page to share with you. I’ve made the right side another time so now I need to make the left side. When I make pages next to each other I use the same colors and the same elements. For this page I used the new Special Kit ‘Suitcase’, some Planner Essentials stencils, Planner Essentials dies and the cute Octopus from Joset.

For this page I used some older dies and Planner Essentials 1 with a tab at the top. I used Paint On Denim paper for this part. Then I used the dies from Planner Essentials 29 as layer. For this piece I added some structure with the newest Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide ‘Walnut Stain’.

Before I adhere this part at the base I gave the sides some Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. All the pieces I used are inked with the same color. At the right side I added a strip from an older die.

The next step is making the suitcase. I need 2 suitcases for this card because I want to open the suitcase.

As you can see I added a blue wave at the bottom of the suitcase which is included in the kit. I made a score line in this die so you can adhere this at the back and front of the suitcase.

So back to the front. First I made some structure again the Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide Ink Stormy Sky. Then I made the boat and the suitcase straps. To close the suitcase I used a piece of hemp cord.

Then the inside of the suitcase. At the top I made a little pocket with on top the new stamp from CS269 which is in the suitcase. I also used some leftover pieces and a little tab.

At the bottom I used the same colors.

For this part I used the Octopus with his wheel and also stamp CS269. I stamped ‘take it easy’ in 2 pieces so you can make it smaller.

Before I adhere the suitcase at the page I made something behind it. I used the fishtail dies from the suitcase kit. Behind this dies I put some elements from the Reminiscene the Book 4 but also some dies which I kept from other projects, like the Photo Film Slides and the structure die.

Here you can see the whole page when the suitcase is folded out.

I hope you like this page. I had a lot of fun making this page.

Thank you for reading! See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Happy Birthday

May 23, 2022
Last Saturday it was my father's birthday. He turned 60. I usually make something fun. This time I started working with the new suitcase kit.
I made a photo book of this with different photos. I also used various nice dies from Joset.
I die cut the front page from denim. For reinforcement I used double sided adhesive behind it. I used design paper for the back of it. I die cut the suitcase strap out of cork.

I used double design paper for all pages because the design paper was only printed single. It is also a bit firmer.

On the next page I used a photo of my parents together. On the right I used Joset's whale. The whole book is in the sea/water theme. This is because my parents have their own boat and are very fond of it.

On the next page I added two photos of my parents boat and decorated the pages with some fun dies from Esther's nautical theme collection.  
The next page shows 2 pictures of their birds. The bird on the right they have had for several years. The bird on the left is a birthday present. I used the nice parrot from Joset and made it in the colors of the real parrot.

On this page that follows are the 3 grandchildren (our own kids), they all 3 have a life jacket on because they can sail on the boat with their grandparents. These pages are also decorated with different dies from the kit and from the planner collection.
On the last page I added another photo from the grandchildren and on the left the super cute octopus from Joset. This could not be missed in this booklet as he is my favorite from the sea collection. He is so very cute!
To make the booklet complete, I decorated the back in the same style as the front with the suitcase made of denim and cork. 
All pages are finished with reinforcers. These are also included in the suitcase kit.

This was my project for today. I hope I was able to inspire you again. The suitcase kit is really very cool!

Greetings, 
Alice

Mine are vintage photo and salvaged patina from the Distress collection. Below you can see a simple step by step tutorial of how i made this beautiful page:

next i repeat the same process on the circle.
and here is the finished page in my planner. I love the vintage, grungy feel this page has. The Planner stencils are a dream to work with and are of a great quality. What a great addition to the Planner Essentials Collection!

Create a Garden Mini Album using Sidekick Essentials Planner Dies

May 10, 2022
Hello everyone, Annette Green back again today with a fun little mini album project you can create in an afternoon using three Sidekick Essentials dies, a few stamp sets, your favorite papers and some chipboard. I’ve created a video tutorial so you can follow along and hopefully make one of these yourself!
I’ve used the Sidekick Essentials 1, 12 and 16 for this album because each one has a base page to use along with very versatile embellishment pieces. I’ve used Graphic 45 papers in my stash, but really any papers will do, so I encourage you to go to your supplies you have on hand.
I ended up using images from five different stamp sets (Memorable, Paper Love, Planted with Love, Home & Nature and In My Garden) but you can use whatever you have to make this album work for you. I’ve linked everything below if you’re looking to expand your collection.
As I describe in the video, I mixed Graphic 45 collections along with 49 & Market to make a really feminine, garden-themed album, but I can imagine this album with masculine papers too. So in the video, I share the basic assembly of the base album first, then I show how I decorated it toward the end of the video. I hope you find it interesting to watch and that it inspires you to give it a try. Thanks for stopping in today.
Joset Designs Planner Essentials Soft Finish Cardstock

Summer

April 21, 2022

Hi all! I hope you doing all fine? I’m here with a new blogpost with the Time to travel collection and some dies from Joset and Ilse & Charlene.

I used the Porthole page for this card. I die-cut it two times and just used two holes.

I want to make a book of it. So I used the Journal Edges and a piece of kraft cardstock.

At this piece I used a stamp to pimp it. I think it looks realy grungy.

In the portholes I adhere the circle with the word ‘summer’ and the cute hippo with his safari hat. He is looking through the porthole.

At the back you see the back of the Hippo with his tail. I only adhere the circles from the porthole inside.

I stamped a sentiment in one of the portholes and add some washi tape.

This is my porthole card with the Hippo. I’ll hope you liked it.

Thankyou for reading!

Kind regards Lisanne

Fun Sidekick memory page with…a cow!

April 14, 2022

Hello everybody and welcome. Today it is my turn to make a blog and, boy did I have fun making this. The project I am doing today is a page in a Planner Essentials Sidekick planner that is near to my heart. Last year I went on a special trip with my mum to Austria and in this memory planner I am documenting this trip. The running theme throughout this fun book will be de critters from Joset. And today the cute cow will do the honours.

I started of by colouring a piece of the soft finish card stock with Distress oxide black sooth. I used that to die cut out some of the elements of the cow and the photo frame
After cutting out the photo frame I splattered som water droplets to create spots on the black.
