Buzzzing for this cute slimline card!

September 8, 2023

Happy Friday all, Katie here with todays blog post. Well its seams like I am still on the bug kick so todays post is about the bees! So grab a coffee and I will walk you through this fun slimline card!

Step 1: Cut your bees, strawberries, leaves and flowers from your choose of card stock. Ink your edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Cut your wings from vellum cardstock and assemble. I inked the cheeks with light pink ink and dotted with a white gel pen.

Step 2: Create your slimline base, I used an older slimline die from photoplay and cut out my page from designer paper. Next, I added some vellum behind the circles and a background paper behind the image and attached to a white card stock base.

Step 3: Once your card is assembled, pop-dot your bee’s, then add your strawberries and your stamped word quote.

Step 4: I covered the bees faces with some scrap paper, then I speckled my card with heavy acyclic paint.

Thank you for checking out my post today, I hope it brough you some inspiration.

Joset Designs Planner Essentials Sidekick Essentials

Caterpillar farmer

August 16, 2023

Hii everyone, I’m here with a new blogpost. Fall is coming so it is time to make some fall pages. The caterpillar is very busy with his pumpkins.

I made a basic page with Sidekick Essentials 20. I made his land with the Slimeline Adventure Edges and adhere them at the smaller blue piece at the page. You can play with the different heights.

As you can see I made 4 different pieces land. If you used put some tape or glue at the sides and leave the top open, you can slide things between the layers.

I made a caterpillar farmer with ofcourse the caterpiller and the farmer. I only used the hat and the pitchfork. I used paper from the beautiful brights and pretty pastels for this cute one.

I adhere the caterpillar farmer as high as possible because I want to add a lot of pumpkins. I didn’t put glue behind the pitchfork so I can put a pumpkin under the fork.

I add different size pumpkins and leafs. I also put them between the layers as I said earlier. But when I finished this I missed something…. and no it’s not the reinforcers…..

I missed these swirls between the pumpkins. And I also adhere the reinforcers.

The page is done for me now, the caterpillar farmer needs to work hard for the pumpkin festival I think.

I will thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Bee-utiful August Sidekick Planner

August 10, 2023

Hi everyone, Happy Friday! Katie here with todays Bee-rific Sidekick Planner, using Joset’s new ” Bugs and Butterfly Collection”. I have been having so much fun with this collection creating cute summer themed pages for my sidekick! So, grab a coffee or your favorited beverage and lets begin!

Step1: You will want to start creating your bees, honey pot and flowers. I cut all the images from solid cardstock except the wings they were cut from heavy vellum cardstock. Then ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and assembled as per the photo above.

Step 2: Cut two base pages from Sidekick Essentials 20 with your choice of coordinating designer paper.

Next, I took Pocket Page Fillers 2 and cut out a photo mat and adhered it to my page. Once my photo matt was down I adhered my month (August). Then I pop-dotted my Bee and Flowers!

Step 3: On the second base page, create a pocket using Planner Essentials #26 then ink and attach your pocket. Next, I adhered my honey pot and pop-dotted my Bee and Flower. I stamped out the word Bee-utiful and matted onto black cardstock and adhered it to the top of my base page. I created a few tags and added them to my pocket.

Last you will want to add your reinforcement rings to both pages.

Step 4: Last step, I always like to add a little splatter with heavy white acrylic paint.

If you have any questions in regards to these sidekick planner pages please send me a message via Facebook to Katie Porcina.

Have a wonderful day and happy creating!

Buzzing to say ‘Hi!’

August 2, 2023

Hi everyone, here I am with a new blogpost. I guess that you all saw the new collection from Joset ‘Bugs and Butterflies. Today I share a Sidekick page with this collection. Because this collection is great for cards but also for planner pages for example if you don’t have a pictures.

Do you remember the honey Sidekick page. This is a perfect page in combination with the bee. I made the bee with the Pretty Pastels paperpad. The wings are made from vellum. Isn’t it a cutie?

I used Sidekick Essentials 4 and 13 for the base. The paper is from Reminiscene the Book 5 and 6. The edges are inked with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

I used the Number Reinforcer to do some stamping. I didn’t make a reinforcer of it, but as a decoration part behind the circle. This is a stamp from the Bugs and Kisses set.

I used the 2 biggest circles from Sidekick Essentials 4 to decorate the page. I adhere only the top part from the smalles circle so I can put something behind later. I also found a label from one of the books.

I made a cute ticket with the sentiment ‘Buzzing by to say ‘HI!’. I also stamped some part of the clover at the ticket and did some coloring. I adhere this ticket a little bit under the smallest circle.

At least I adhere the bee and put some leaves under the circle and ticket. I think the green is perfect for this page. And ofcourse I adhere some reinforcements.

Thank you all for visiting and reading! See you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Love this

July 19, 2023

Hi everyone,

I’m here for you today with a new blogpost. Today it is a sweet card with an ice cream. I will lead you step by step through this card.

I started with two tags from the Nested Tags dies. At the top I made a scoreline and adhere that small part together. You can see that line at the top. But you can still open it.

As base I used a piece of designpaper (Bellrose Pink) from 22 X 14 cm. I also cut a piece kraft cardstock from 22,5 x 14,5 cm. I also cut a piece designpaper from 5 x 16 cm and made a scoreline at 0,9 and 15,1 cm.

Now we adhere the 2 parts designpaper together. But you only adhere the small 0,9 cm and the back. So this piece is open to put things behind.

I cut out a piece of the designpaper and adhere this at the background. As you can see I also adhere the designpaper at the kraft.

I made a small cluster to add on the pink strip. All these elements are from the same paperpad.

Now it’s time to decorate the tags I made in the beginning. I cut a tag and numberstrip from the paperpad. I did some stamping at tickets and tabs and made a girl (the witch dies) with an ice cream. I used the donut from the Foodtruck Accessoires as reinforcer.

Adhere this at the front of the tag.

For the inside I cut out again a piece of the paperpad but also did some stamping with the good food good mood stamp. I made an bigger ice cream and ticket.

I also did some stamping and coloured 2 of them with a glitter pen.

Now I can slide one part of the tag under the stripe and one part above. You can unfold a part or you can take it all out.

Well I hope you enjoyed this project. I did when I was making. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards

Have a roaring birthday!

May 24, 2023

Hii everyone,

It is time for a new blogpost from me, Lisanne. Today it is a birthday card for the daughter of my neighbor’s . It is her first birtday.

First I made the head of the animals and the safari jeep. I only need the heads because that is enough for the window. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink to make these elements.

And if you adhere these elements together you will get a cute Safari Jeep.

As base I made the Mason Jar with paper from Reminiscene The Book 5. I used the Safari saying stamps for the background.

For the front I cut out the window of the jar and made a grass line in it. As you can see it trimmed this in two pieces other wise I didn’t have enough. But you don’t see that later because I adhere the jeep over that part.

At the top I made some jungle leaves.

I adhere the Safari Jeep.

I adhere the background behind the mason jar and made a small jar with the sentiment ‘have a roaring birthday’.

At least I put the name of the girl at the jeep.

So I hope you like this post about this birthday card. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Dashboard page February

April 19, 2023

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all oke and ready for some new inspiration. Today I share my dashboard page for February. Yes, I know I’m a little bit behind haha. But it’s oke I will work that out.

So I started with the Planner Essentials 2 dies, paper from Reminiscene the book 5, a planner stencil and some wax. I made a shimmer background with the wax and stencil and I like it.

After that I made a little lay out with the tag and hearts. The hearts are from Planner Essentials 57 heart overlay. Also the yellow hearts are from this dies.

At the left corner I added some cut outs from the book 5. I also added the month ‘ February’.

At least I made the cow with Soft Finisch Cardstock en Distress Ink. I think the cow is a cute one! Oh and ofcourse I adhere the reinforcements.

I hope you enjoy this post and got some new ideas. Thankyou for visiting.

Kind regards Lisanne

March 24, 2023

Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. I have a fun inspirational piece to show you using Joset’s super cool Food Truck, Accessories and Stamps. So grab a coffee or your favorite beverage and lets begin.

From your favorite card stock cut out pieces of food, accessories, picnic table, food truck and tires. I cut the bottom strip from Doodlebug Bar-B-Cute. Next, stamp the sentiment Burger and Fries and matted it on card stock.

Next, I cut the inside pages by tracing the truck out and cutting them out. Next I used my Cinch and wired my book together.

You will want to line your tires up with your front tires.

On different pages I added photo mats hot dogs, pretzels, hamburgers and Ice Creams.

There are so many different books you can make, bakery, pet album and travel the food truck albums are endless. I hope this project brought you some inspiration, if you have any questions please send me a Facebook message to Katie Porcina. Thank you and have a wonderful creative day!
