Remember The Now

March 19, 2020

Hello Crafters, today it is Luciana here with a planner spread. This is an example on how you could make several planner inserts using the same technique.

Cut out the ticket page from the set Planner Essential – 11, using the white soft cardstock. Use the distress oxide ink pad to color the edges of the ticket.
Than cut a rectangle and the pattern with the letters from the Planner Essential – Planner Patterns. and color both with the same color. Use the stamp from the set Planner Essential – Patterns 2 to create a more interessing background. Distress the edge of the rectangle with a distress tool ( the edge of the scissors eventually works too ).

Glue together the three layers, it will seem like and embossed background.

Prepare the decoration for the planner insert. Die cut from the white soft cardstock 4 pieces of photoframe, using the die from the set Planner Essential – Planner Filmstrip. Adhere together the 4 pieces, to create a heavy frame.

Stamp on a watercolor sheet the leaves from the stamps set A Field of Flowers. Color the leaves with the watercolors, and than cut the twigs with the scissors

Adhere the frame on the ticket insert, and use the twigs to embellish it, as shown in the pictures below.

Stamp the sentiment “Remember the now” from the stamps set Planner Essential – Remember, on a white soft cardstock. Cut out the rectangle and adhere it on the frame of the insert.

I used the same technique to create other two planner insert.
In the first on the left I used:
the tag die from the set Planner Essential – 4 ;
the photo frame die from the set Planner Essential – 4 ;
the patterns with the numbers from the set Planner Essential – Planner Patterns ;
the sentiment “Hello Everyday life” from the set Planner Essential – Retro Labels Sayings ;

For the insert on the right side, I used:
the die from the set Planner Essential – 5 ;
the photo frame die from the set Planner Essential – 4 ;
the patterns with the rose from the set Planner Essential – 6 .

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy planning!
Luciana

Documenting Life

March 17, 2020

Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I absolutely love the Planner Essentials Line from Elizabeth Craft Designs for documenting special occasions, travel and other bits of life. Today, I am showcasing a page that I created documenting a visit to the National Geographic Museum in Washington DC. I’d like to say that I planned my “green” page for St Patrick’s Day today – but that was really just luck!

Double-Pocket For February

March 1, 2020

Hello again, Marjolijn here!

This time, I made a pocket-page for the month February –– the month of love!!! First, I made a double page for every week. But, because the weeks are very much alike, I thought: “mmm no, I won’t do that anymore. I only scrap the highlight of the month.” And so, that’s what I did. 😊

For this page, I used P.E. (Planner Essentials) 22 to make the pocket and with the P.E. 25 to make the little heart insert. On the edge of the page, I added some white gesso with a mask and stamped with the ECD stamp-set Background 1, 3 and Pieces of Life 1. I adhered the little faceted heart from P.E. 8 on the heart insert. 

And behind the insert I made a shaker with little pink hearts in it. So funny!!

The backside of the page I made with P.E. 4 and I placed a pocket (P.E. Pocket 2) on it. I decorated it with different stamps from Pieces of Life 3. On top of the pocket I placed an insert for tags P.E. 2. The tags I made with the P.E. 26 Tag & Toppers. In one of the tags I also made a shaker –– it’s so much fun, I like these little extra’s. 

In the big pocket I made a big tag and I stamped with black Stazon ink over the pictures.

I had so much fun making this page! I hope you are a little bit inspired by it.

See you next time 😉

Organizing To Move

February 9, 2020

Hello everyone! Annette Green here again to share more of my Greenville planner pages. Today’s pages are about the early signs of progress toward our move. The house is in disarray, there’s paint swatches all over the walls, and my craft room is being reduced by half – which is a feat in itself!

While sorting through my craft room, I came across some tags I had experimented on with Distress Oxides, and some pages I created with my Gelli Plate. From a big stack, I pulled the greens, blues and yellows to coordinate with my Greenville planner.

I adhered one of the Gelli printed pages to the back of my existing page in my planner. This was the first paper in the photo above (far left) with a totally white background. I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the entire surface, some stenciling of a die-cut clock, and then I stamped the dot pattern with black ink, using the Background Stamps 1 set.

From the dictionary collage page, I die-cut this pattern using the Planner Patterns die, then trimmed off the top right corner.

I adhered the cut piece to a graph patterned paper then trimmed around. This will become a unique pocket for my left page.

For my pages I die-cut the round hole reinforcers from this tag. I ended up die-cutting several more elements as you’ll see in the next few photos. I loved using up things I had in my stash!

I think my new favorite die set is Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces. There are SO many great frames, fold-over tabs, banners, tags, and arrows! I’ve been keeping a list of what bigger ticket items we’ve sold and what is left to sell so I made a record of it here in our early stages of preparing to move. This will slip into the pocket on my left hand page. The photo on the left is my messy craft room.

My righthand page is cut from the Planner Essentials 6 set. The photo shows a mural I painted over 20 years ago is now being covered up with a neutral gray paint. It’s symbolic to me that things don’t last forever, only memories.

There are a lot of emotions that come with moving away from a home we’ve been in for 20 years. I’m not sad, actually rather excited, cut at the same time feeling sentimental. I think I’ll be glad I documented this process when I look back on it in the future.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Don’t fret if you can’t leave a comment here. If you wish to, you can hop over to my blog.

Believe

January 30, 2020

Good morning! Laura here today to share my latest layout! I love to create mixed media type layouts and the awesome dies from Elizabeth Craft are a perfect fit!

To create this layout:
Step 1 – die cut at least 15 – 1 3/4″, 2 – 2 3/4″ and 3 – 1 1/4″ stitched hexagons
Step 2 – adhere them on the main page and using cardboard or foam dots on a few
Step 3 – cover the page with clear gesso.
Step 4 – use your favorite stencil and modeling paste down the center of the page and on the side then dry with heat gun

Step 5 – using various mists and powders color the stenciled images and dry with heat gun
Step 6 – using the same mists and powders create some splatters

Step 7 – using white ink stamp the star background from the background stamps 1 in various places around the layout

Step 8 – mat and adhere your photo

Step 9 – die cut the banner, Believe, and celebration flags and adhere
Step 10 – using media gel adhere some art stones and beads to the layout

All done! Thanks so much for stopping by.
Laura
