A few weeks ago I received my sidekick planner Olive, oh oh, oh, he’s beautiful!! I’m so happy with this planner. Green is one of my favorite colors and then with those beautiful gold speckles incorporated, so cool.
At the moment I’m very busy with a Halloween album but of course there had to be a page in this beautiful planner. I don’t know what I’m going to use this planner for yet, so I just got to work.
With the sidekick planner set 5 I created an extended page.
I’ve decorated the page with graphic 45 design paper, I haven’t added any photos yet but once I know were I’m going to use this planner for, It’s easy to add.
I also covered the back of the page and added a pocket. For the pocket I used Planner Essentials 26 Tags and Toppers.
I fussy cut some mushrooms from the design paper and placed them on the pocket.
I already think it’s a nice page for the coming spring or am I running really fast? 😉 😉
Thank you for visiting and see you next time!

Hello again, Annette Green here today with more pages from my Greenville Planner. We’ve been here in Greenville several months now and starting to have our first Florida visitors and are making new friends too, so that’s what my planner pages are all about this month.
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I am in love with my Sidekick Planner. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s like the little brother or sister to the regular planner. So stinkin’ CuTe! I’m using mine to record my journey through quarantine and COVID19 issues.
Hello everyone! It’s Marjolijn here today. With a little luck, the world will open up a bit, at least in the Netherlands.
It has done a lot to me, the “intelligent Lock down” and I am glad we can breathe again.
Of course, that does not alter the fact that the virus is still roaming around and that caution is really necessary.
But let’s hope we can take that coat off gradually. That we get a little more freedom again and I sincerely hope that we can eventually return to what it was like.
Contrary to what is said and thought about it.
This page I made out of the beautiful paper Ilse and Charlene designed for ECD. Rusty Weathered from the Art journal collection.
Also I cut the cylinder lock on the small ticket from that paper, I incorporated an eyelet were the key ring hangs. The keys I made from black cardstock that has been treated with guilding wax.
The text stamped on the tab is from one of the stamp sets of the Art journal collection. Together we are strong and we really have to do this together.
I punched all the tickets, the borders and the flowers out of a scrap of yellow design paper, they did get a lick of distress ink.
Behind the small flowers is a golden flower, which I punched out of golden glitter paper, I think it works very nice with the glitter of ECD, but I don’t have the glitter yet. I think I must have that to 😉
There are 2 stamped flowers on top, they are stamped on vellum that I first gave a lick of watercolor paint on the back, I stamped with Stazon or I rubbed it off again.
On top of a piece of burlap, I also stamped on that, first I cut it with one of the label dies but did not get through the jute, However, I could see the shape well, so I cut it with my scissor.
I used drops on the small leaves of this twig, which is a delicious stuff, finally one that also makes really nice balls..
So a new phase, a new planner, the other one was almost filled so it was necessary.
I am very happy with the planners of E.C.D. not too much fuss and you can put a lot in it.
Hopefully I inspired you a bit to get started.

Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I cannot believe that my oldest son just celebrated his 27th birthday. Since we are all in quarantine, I only got a picture of him when he was taking a break from doing yardwork for me. This special-day moment is still perfect for my planner. So grown up, so handsome. I am very proud of him.
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.

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!
