Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my No.7 Planner Pocket.
To create my No.7 Planner Pocket, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection and the Art Journal Specials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my planner pocket at home.
Step One. Choose a piece of patterned paper and die cut the Pocket die from the Planner Essentials 22 – Planner Pocket 3 – Top Loading twice. On the pocket that will be the front, place the rectangle die from the same die set and place it in the middle of the front pocket. Ink the edges of both pieces using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Cut a piece of vellum that measures 3 1/2″ x 6″.
Step Three. Cut a piece of black cardstock that measures 3 7/8″ x 8″.
Step Four. From a piece of coordinating patterned paper, die cut the tattered tag topper from the Planner Essentials 22 – Planner Pocket 3 – Top Loading Die. Ink the edges of the topper using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. From the same die, die cut the reinforcement strips out of black cardstock.
Step Six. Die cut the arrow strip out of black cardstock from the same die used in the previous step.
Step Seven. Choose another piece of coordinating patterned paper. Die cut the small note piece from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces out of the patterned paper. From the same die, die cut the stitched rectangle out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of both pieces using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Choose a third piece of coordinating patterned paper and die cut the stitched banner from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tag & Topper die. Ink the edges of the banner using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Nine. Choose two of the flower stems from the Flower Power die and die cut them out of kraft cardstock.
Step Ten. Next you’ll need the Pieces of Life 2 – Numbers & Labels stamp set. From the stamp set, you need the No. and 7. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the two stamps and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the 7 out. Cut the No. word into a strip. Ink the edges of the No. and 7 using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eleven. Adhere the vellum to the back side of the die cut hole in the front pocket.
Step Twelve. Adhere the stitched rectangle to the middle of the note piece. Staple the arrow piece to the middle of the stitched rectangle piece. Foam square the stitched banner 1/2″ from the bottom and all the way to the right hand side of the note piece. Adhere the No. and 7 as desired on the banner. Staple the note piece to the bottom right hand side of the note pocket as desired.
Step Thirteen. Staple the two flower stems as desired in the middle of the vellum piece in the pocket.
Step Fourteen. Adhere the front pocket to back pocket on the tabs and sides. Make sure that the top of the pocket isn’t adhere together.
Step Fifteen. Adhere the reinforcement strips over top of the holes on the now formed pocket.
Step Sixteen. Adhere the torn tab topper to the top of the black cardstock piece.
Step Seventeen. Slide the black cardstock piece with topper at the top of the pocket.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my No.7 Planner Pocket at home.
