Good morning! Laura here with you today to show you a layout I created for Els of her grandson –– he is adorable!
To create this layout:
Step 1 – Using your accent papers Die cut – 2 stitched circles – your choice of size and cut one in half, a stitched fishtail with accent paper and one using the card paper of the blue cotton candy to create your title, kaleidoscope background, the tag part of the planner essentials 11, the largest die in Planner Essentials 8, the heart from Love Struck, a border from Valentines Edges, the circle and tree from the Love Life Tag and two stitched rectangles.
Step 2 – apply a double sided adhesive sheet to a piece of Soft Finish cardstock and die cut the following – 2 edges from the Valentines Edges, a circle from the Love Life Tag, and a banner set from the celebration flags. Peel off one backing and apply midnight blue silk microfine glitter from the Beach Palette set. Rub the pieces with your fingers to bring out the sparkle
Step 3 – Assemble as shown

The Planner Essential line is perfect as a monthly agenda, mini scrapbook, junk journal, and more –– but, did you ever think to use the line in another creative ways?
For this mini journal, Esther used the large ticket die from the Planner Essentials 11 die set (1655) for the pages. Then, she binded it! You could, of course, choose any method of book-binding you’d like.
We love it when people think outside the box when using our products! Isn’t this mini journal cool? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
It’s Karen here today. My parents have a milestone anniversary coming up. 6o years is the Diamond anniversary, so I turned a square on its side to create a diamond-shaped card!
We are throwing them a dinner party, and I wanted to create a few printed invitations for special guests. I used a few of the flower stamps to create the invitations. On the back of the card is where I put the details about the event printed from my computer.

It’s Karen here today. Christmas is, for me, the most wonderful time of the year. I finally got around to creating pages for my special moments book with some pictures from Christmas 2018. I used some of the NEW Planner Line dies and stamps.
Good morning! I was honored to be asked by Els to create a layout of her granddaughter and her. I will admit, I was slightly nervous to create something for someone else but the photo she provided was so wonderful that it helped design the layout.
To create this layout you will need 2 full sheets of paper (I used ModaScrap Wood Effect paper (the top one) and ModaScap Relax in the Garden. I also used lots of bits and pieces and 1/2 sheets of the relaxing the garden papers. You will also need an edge distresser, brown ink, a few pearls for inside your flowers and of course your wonderful ECD dies.
Step 1 – Trim your top sheet to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 then using a pair of sharp scissors trim a bit of the top sheet in little bit so the bottom sheet will show more then using your distressing tool shred the edges a bit on both papers
Step 3 – Using the smallest shape in the fitted hexagons die set, cut 23 – 25 hexagons. Ink then distress the edges.
Step 4 – Using the Planner Essentials 8 cut one of the large tag and the title and ink and die and ink and distress
Step 5 – Using the stitched circles die cut the second largest circle the ink and distress the edges
Step 6 – Using planner essentials 11 cut one of the tags and 4 of the strips then ink and distress the edges
Step 7 – Cut the top layer of the butterfly flourish and ink the edges
Step 8 – Using the backside of one of the relaxing in garden papers or a piece of off white cardstock die cut 2 leafy branches, then trim them in half so you will now have 4 pieces and ink the edges
Step 9 – Using your left over pieces of paper and your favorite flower dies die cut your flowers – I used, bunch of flowers 3, large flower set, and small flower set. I cut three of each flower and layered each one but you can also just die cut one and leave your flowers flat.
Step 10 – Assemble and enjoy!
