Fun in Florida planner pages

January 13, 2022
Hello everyone, Annette Green here with some planner pages from my weekend trip to Florida last year. (Yes, I’m still trying to catch up on my scrapbooking planner from 2021.) I created a two-page spread with an insert page to maximize the space for more photos. The left page is a regular page shape from Planner Essentials 4. All supplies are linked at the end of this post.
The middle insert is from Planner Essentials 35 Holiday Tab Pages and the right page is from Planner Essentials 38 Splatter Page. I went with a sunny, bright palette of colors for the pages mixing papers from the Book 1, Rusty Weathered, and Rainbow of Happiness.

I enjoyed using some older dies and stamps I haven’t pulled out in a while, like Planner Labels 1658 for the tag, Pieces of Life 3 Quotes stamp set for the sentiment, and CS135 My Life for the scalloped border.
Another label from the Planner Labels set is shown here with April from 1657 Planner Months. The flowers in the background are fussy-cut from Reminiscence The Book 1.
For the insert page I pulled in more of the fussy-cut flowers to frame the photo and balance with the facing page. The BFF circle is a fun accent from Planner Essentials 43 Circle Words which includes a total of 20 words! That cute little grapefruit die-cut is one from Joset’s 1542 Summer Drink which I also used on the next page.
On the flip side of the insert I added a cute photo of my parents’ dog Rocco who was trying to get my attention at the time. I framed him with the die from Planner Essentials 3 and stamped some paw prints and You’re So Cute from CS138 Furrever Friends.
On the final righthand page, I added embellishments from the Summer Drink die again, this time using the mug, the umbrella and more fruit pieces. I finished off the page with a photo of my Mom, sister and I celebrating an early Mother’s Day, and stamped the circle from CS131 Circle Labels. If you go back to the full page image, you’ll see I did some journaling about my trip using the Note Pieces stamp set and coordinating die set. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed these fun Florida pages!

Happy Birthday!

January 6, 2022

Today I want to show you this cool planner page. This time I started working with the Candle Page (1912).

December 22 our youngest son turned 7 years old. For him I made this planner page. The Candle Page is perfect for this. You don’t necessarily have to use it as a Christmas page. It is also perfect as a Birthday page. Behind the candle page I used a base page. (1606)

For this page I used the great paper from ModaScrap. I think this is super cool to combine with the figures of Joset. The paperpad that I used is Colors of Puppies Boy.

I edited the flame of the candles with distress ink. I used the following colors for this: Vintage Photo, Fossilezed Amber, Spiced Marmelade and Fired Brick.

Next to the candles I used the lion die (1617) from Joset. It fits perfectly with the theme of the paper. I colored the lion with distress ink (Antique Linnen, Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge and Black Soot).

Because it’s a birthday page, a party hat should not be missing of course. For this I used the hat of the Gnomes (1922)

I added a text at the top of the page. For this I used the blackboard numbers and the alphabet. Bring theme on color with distress ink (Evergreen Bough and Mowed Lawn)

On the left I used a planner sleeve. Because the photo’s were not exactly tailored to the pockets, I also made these on a background of design paper. This wil return the paper from the right page to the left page. To make it complete I finished the pages with the same reinforcements.

Hopefully I was able to inspire you again and give you new ideas to get started yourself. See you next time!

Lovely greetings Alice

Book of me

December 27, 2021

Hii everyone! Hopefully you all doing fine.

I’m here again (Lisanne) with a new blogpost for you. It is just a small project but a realy fun project. I made a little book with the Folded Arrow Insert (1870).

First I started with making a lot of different arrows so I have a little book already. Now I can decorate these little pages. In this blogpost I will tell about my front page. The paper is from Reminiscene 2. For the edge I used Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

As you can see I started with a base and a smaller arrow with the sentiment ‘love this’. Before I adhere this part down I made a tab with a stamp ‘Book of me’. It is stamp from CS231. I will use this book for myself with positive things.

The next step is making the eye cather of this page. I tore some pink paper and adhere a picture frame at it with an eyelet. Behind the torn paper I put some grid from Planner Essentials 40.

Above the picture frame I adhere the beautiful girl in her lovely dress with bow.

At least I adhere the Reinforcements and the bookrings.

It is a short post this time but hopefully you liked it. Thankyou so much for reading!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

December 23, 2021

Hello snowman, how are you today?

Today I want to show you this planner page. For this page I made another galaxy background. This page matches my previous page. I combined the Mason Jar with a galaxy background. I love making these background. It’s so cool to see how you can make such a cool background.

This time I combined two planner pages. The super cool Tree page (1677 – Planner Essential 16) and a base page (1803 – Planner Essential 28). I think this basic page is so cool because it has an edited edge. I completely edited the base page with the distress ink to make the galaxy background. First you apply the basic colors (seedles preserves, picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade, peacock feathers). Then apply the Chipped Sapphire color over the entire page. And finally apply Black Soot on the edges and a little bit on the side of the page.

Then splash some water and dab with a cloth. Finally, dilute some with paint with water and splash is all over. Your background is ready now!

Then I colored the tree page (1677). For this I used the colour Rustic Wilderness. This is my favorite colour for trees. With this page I also dilute some white paint with water and splash it over the tree. Now it looks like snow!

But what is a Christmas tree without light? So I cut and colored a lot of lights. For this I used the lights that come with the new die of the train wagons (1924). I colored all the little lights with different colours of distress ink. (villainous potion, fossilezed amber, crackling campfire, blueprint sketsch)

For this page I want to use the cute snowman. And with a snowman comes snow of course. At the bottom of this page I have therefore creates snow with texture paste. I applied this with a spatula.

And finally the super cute snowman! Oh how I love all the cute characters!! I can really enjoy this to work with the figures!

I hope you enjoy this blogpost. See you next time!!

December Daily with Critters

December 19, 2021

Karen here today sharing days 7 and 8 of my December Daily album. I love making these albums each year. This year, I’m using many of Joset’s critters to embellish my pages. Seriously so sweet.

Day 7 includes the fun new Planner Essentials 48 – Forest Tree Page. (The Joy die is also in this set!) The page base is Planner Essentials 4. To apply the tree to the base, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. I love the tree with the sweet Reindeer! The number is stamped from the Calendar Numbers set and the little “Peace on Earth” Sentiment is from the Cozy Days set. This page highlights a few ornaments on my tree that include pictures of my kids. I treasure those ornaments, for sure.

I just HAD to use a close-up of that sweet Reindeer. I love putting together these critters! It’s so relaxing, like when I used to play with paper dolls as a kid!

On the back of Day 7 is Day 8! I used the very sweet Penguin die to embellish this page. I added a couple Fitted Circles (and chopped them off at the edge. No page is complete (for me) without adding some fun reinforcements!

And finally, I couldn’t be done without a close-up of the ADORABLE Penguin. Once of my favorites! Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Hii all! It’s is Lisanne here today with a new blogpost. It is almost Christmas so let’s give some cards to lovely people around you.

For this post I want to share an explosion card. This card is made with a punchboard from We R Memory Keepers and decorate with ECD stuff. It will be a great gift for my 2 cousins.

First I start with making the envelope. I used a piece of the beautiful Worn Wood Paper. At the front I stamped ‘To:…… From:…. This is a stamp who is in the Classic Christmas kit.

In the right corner I made a snowflake with some Nuvo Glimmer Paste and the mask from de AJS Winter stencils.

I add some trees from Planner Essentials 13 for the snowflake. Just coloured with some Distress Ink and adhere it.

On the backside is a stamp from the Classic Christmas Kit to and a banner with ‘hold here’. And then…….

Open the envelope. So you can hold and pull.

As you can see you can see things like a punchboard in combination with dies, paper and masks from ECD. I realy like it. Hopefully you enjoyed it to.

Good morning!
The holiday season is upon us and its often a time for reflecting on Christmas past!
The little guy on the photo is our oldest who is now 21 and I was almost 9 months pregnant with our youngest. I really feel sorry for Santa in this photo – his poor knee!

To create this layout:

Step 1 – Ink the edges of a 12×12 sheet, and fussy cut images or die cut images for the bottom

Step 2 – Die cut 4 poinsettia’s from cardstock, ink, mold and assemble
Step 3 – Die cut 4 poinsettia’s from double sided sheets of adhesive, use silk micro fine glitter in the die cuts then mold and assemble
Step 4 – take texture paste and make ‘snow’ on the poinsettia’s then use cool diamond silk microfine glitter on the paste to make it look more like snow.
Step 5 – assemble and enjoy

Thanks for stopping by


December Day-by-Day Inspiration

December 2, 2021
Hello and welcome, it’s Annette Green here with a kick-off to the December Day-by-Day fun! I’ve created several pages to share with you today using lots of new ECD products mixed in with a few old favorites. At the end of this post, I share a “Craft With Me” video as I create the two pages shown above.
Working in my Olive Sidekick Planner, my dashboard is simple, showcasing the new The Book 3 papers, along with stamping from the new Cozy Days set. All products will be listed at the end of this post as soon as they are available. (Very soon!)
I’ve combined The Book 3 with Graphic 45 papers (Winter Wonderland, 2017) for my pages this year. Here I’ve used the Winter Greens die, Sidekick Essentials 5, and several other new stamps and dies.
I stuck with the first Reinforcement Pack for all my hole reinforcers throughout the planner, and used some old favorites here like Sidekick Essentials 10 (Today with Slide Frames) and Planner Essentials 30 (Wave Pocket) along with some new dies and stamps coming soon.
The new Sidekick Essentials 21 (Polaroid Style) and #1911 (Iris Shutter) are new sets, and once you get a hang of the Iris Shutter die and how it works, it’s super fun!
The candle page on the left shows how you can still use full-size Planner Essentials dies like the new Planner Essentials 45 (Candle Page) in your Sidekick planner. I share how in the video.
The Book 3 has so many great papers to play with, like these label pocket images. I’ve inserted a journaling tag from Sidekick Essentials 5 inside, and used Joset’s new Train Carts die to make the Christmas packages on the right page.
The last two pages in my December DBD (for now) are the ones I create in the video. I share my thought process as I compose these and share some design tips you may find helpful. The Today frame on the right page is from Sidekick Essentials 1 and those peppermint candies are from Joset’s new Holiday Train set. I hope you got some inspiration from all of these pages, and that you have a moment to watch the video. Thanks for popping in today!

Merry and Bright Christmas Card

November 28, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry and Bright Christmas Card.

To create my Merry and Bright Christmas Card, I’ve used a variety of dies and stamps from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″.

Step Two. From the Winter Scenery Die, you’ll need to cut the slim line snow piece out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three. You’ll need the Merry & Bright sentiment from the stamp set out of the Classic Christmas Kit. Apply Emboss It Ink to the stamp and stamp in the middle of the 3 1/4″ rectangle piece. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powders over the sentiment. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Four. From the Classic Christmas Kit, choose three of the snowflakes. Die cut each snowflake once out of a piece of white shimmer cardstock.

Step Five. From the Winer Scenery Die, die cut one large tree, one medium tree and two small trees out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of each tree.

Step Six. From the Winter Scenery Die, die cut the moose out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Gathered Twigs Distress Ink over the bottom portion of the moose. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the antlers of the moose.

Step Seven. Place the snow slim line piece over top of the 3 1/4″ rectangle. Adhere the large tree in behind the slim line piece as desired on the left hand side. Adhere a small tree to the right of the large tree on the snow slim line piece.

Step Eight. With the snow slim line piece still over top of the 3 1/4″ rectangle. Adhere the moose to the right hand side of the 3 1/4″ rectangle close to the bright word. Adhere the medium tree in behind the slim line piece as desired on the right hand side. Adhere a small tree to the left of the medium tree on the snow slim line piece.

Step Nine. Adhere the snow slim line piece to the 3 1/4″ rectangle piece.

Step Ten. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 7″ x 8 1/2″, score at 3 1/2″. Adhere the cadfront to the cardbase.

Step Eleven. To finish the card, splatter Brushed Pewter Distress Spray Stain on the card with a paint brush as desired.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Merry and Bright Christmas Card at home.

November 27, 2021

Hello all, Jackie here today with this interactive Christmas train card using the new whimsical winter collection Holiday Train and Carts. This fun train can be spun around the sentiment so if you fancy creating something a little different then lets get started.

Step One:

Start by ink blending the whole front of an 8×8″ white card blank using distress oxide inks Tumbled glass and Broken China. Flick some splatters of white paint over the top creating snow then glue a small coin to the very centre and set aside to dry.

Step Two:

To make the spinner parts, die cut the circular frames as pictured below. Here I have used circle die sizes as follows – thin frame – 3 3/4″ and 3″ fatter frame – 3 1/4″ and 3/4″. Note the 3/4″ fits nicely around my small coin, you may have to adjust this to fit your chosen coin.

Step Three:

Glue the two frames together with the thinner one at the top. Build up the train and carts then attach them around the very edge.

Step Four:

Die cut two more circles using a 3 1/4 die, stamp out and white heat emboss the sentiment then dot a border around the edge using a white glaze pen before attaching the two die cut circles together for added stability.

Step Five:

Place the train over the coin slotting into the centre hole, adhere two smaller die cut circles to the coin ensuring to keep the glue only on the coin.

Step Six:

Finish off by fixing the sentiment in place with glue on top of the white die cut circles, the train should now be able to spin.

Thankyou for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you to have a go at this interactive design.

Happy crafting – Jackie
