How To Create A Christmas Card Using Planner Essentials Dies

November 14, 2019

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

I love the fact that the Planner Essentials dies can be used for more than just my planner spreads. So, to create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials collection, Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. You’ll need to choose two patterned papers from the Christmas Market Collection. Die cut the 4 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangles. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Use the reverse side of the patterned paper used on the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle and die cut the 1″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out of. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Market collection and die cut the 1 1/2″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out the paper. Cut the 1″ fishtail down to 4 1/4″. Cut the 1 1/2″ fishtail down to 4 3/4″. Distress the edges of each fishtail. Ink the edges of each fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut two base trees and each patterned tree from the Planner Essentials – 12 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. The chevron tree will stay white. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted tree. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of both base trees. Ink the edges of the base trees and dotted tree using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the same Planner Essentials – 12 die, die cut a small star and medium star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam over the entire surface of each star. Ink the edges of each star using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials – 14 die, die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Six. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Foam square the 1 1/2″ fishtail 1″ from the right and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the 1″ fishtail 7/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. The fishtails will over lap.

Step Seven. Adhere the trees together. On the dotted tree, adhere the small star at the top. On the chevron tree, adhere the medium star at the top. Foam square the chevron tree 1/4″ from the right and 5/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the dotted tree 1/2″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step-By-Step: My September Week #3 Planner Spread

September 24, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my September Week #3 planner spread for my planner.

To create this spread, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials collection and Joset Designs. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Choose some patterned paper (mine is from the Georgia Blues Collection). Die cut the page from the Planner Essentials – 4 page out of the paper. Die cut the page from the Planner Essentials – 2 page out of the paper. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the chicken wire stamp from the Background Stamp 1 and stamp randomly on each page. Reapply ink as needed. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the script stamp from the Background Stamp 2 and stamp randomly on each page. Reapply ink as needed. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the September month from the Months stamp set and stamp onto the tab on the left hand page. Distress the edges of each page. Ink the edges of each page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose a patterned paper (mine is from the Spring Farmhouse collection). Die cut the reinforcement circles from the Planner Essentials – 1 die twice out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the 12 reinforcements circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut seven labels from the Planner Labels die out of kraft cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the days of the week from the Schedule stamp set and stamp each one day of the week on each of the labels. Use a black pen to write in to-do’s on each label. Distress the edges of each label. Ink the edges of the label using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Choose another patterned paper (mine is from the Spring Farmhouse paper). From the Planner Essentials – 6 die, die cut two large rectangles out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Stitched Indented Rectangle die, die cut two 3″ rectangles out of the same patterned paper used for the reinforcement circles. Distress the edges. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Choose another patterned paper (mine is from the Spring Farmhouse paper). From the Stitched Indented Rectangle die, die cut two 3 1/2″ rectangles out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. From the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails, die cut the 1 1/2″ fishtail twice out of kraft cardstock. Distress the edges of each fishtail. Ink the edges of each fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Choose another patterned paper (mine is from the Spring Farmhouse paper). From the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails, die cut the 1 7/8″ fishtail twice out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of each fishtail. Ink the edges of each fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. From the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails, die cut the 1 1/8″ fishtail twice out of the same patterned paper used for the large rectangles. Distress the edges of each fishtail. Ink the edges of each fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Ten. Choose a flag from the Celebration Flags die. From the same patterned paper used for the 3″ stitched indented rectangle, die cut two of the flags out. Cut both flags down to 3 3/4″. From the same patterned paper used for the large rectangles, die cut two of the flags out. Cut one of the flags down to 4 1/4″ and cut the other flags down to 3 1/4″.

Step Eleven. Adhere six of the reinforcement circles to the left page. Adhere the other six reinforcement circles to the right page.

Step Twelve. Adhere the 1 1/8″ stitched fishtail to the 1 1/2″ stitched fishtail. Adhere the 1 1/2″ stitched fishtail to the 1 7/8″ stitched fishtail. Repeat for the other page. Foam square one of the stacked stitched fishtails to the left page 1 1/2″ from the left and 1″ from the bottom of the page. Foam square the other stacked stitched fishtails to the right page 1 1/4″ from the right and 1″ from the bottom of the page.

Step Thirteen. Adhere the 3″ stitched indented rectangle to the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. Adhere the large rectangle to the 3″ stitched indented rectangle. Repeat for the other page. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the stacked stitched indented rectangles to the left page 1/2″ from the left and 2″ from the bottom of the page. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the other stacked indented rectangles to the right page 1/2″ from the right and 2″ from the bottom of the page.

Step Fourteen. Adhere the Monday to Wednesday labels to the left hand page. Adhere the Thursday to Sunday labels to the right hand page.
