2021 Planner Dashboard and January Divider Page

January 5, 2021

Hello again, it’s Annette Green here with a brand new Planner for 2021. I’ve created a simple dashboard page and my first monthly divider page to share with you today.

This is my actual planner/datebook for the year which I will use for appointments, to-do lists, and notes. Each month will have a divider and one photo mat reserved for my top photo of the month. All other memory keeping will be done in a separate planner.
To create my dashboard page, I die-cut pretty paper (Graphic 45’s Woodland Friends collection) using the Wave Pocket die which I will create a double pocket page with. I will adhere it to a plain page (blue) which I die-cut using Planner Essentials 4. As an accent piece, I die-cut the small piece using the Note Pieces set.
After folding the wave pocket piece, I adhered it to the blue page using adhesive on the left, right and bottom only to create a double pocket. These pockets will be used for things such as a list of goals for the year, memorabilia, or receipts for a few examples. I die-cut 2021 (pink) from the Retro Number Trio set as well as two hole reinforcers from the Reinforcement Variety Pack. The final touches are stickers from the paper collection.
Onto the back of my dashboard page I built a photo page by die-cutting two tag shapes, one inside the other, from floral pink paper using the Wave Pocket die set again. I’ll save the smaller tag for later. I also die-cut the outline pieces from green paper for decorating the tag top. Finally, I cut an ivory cardstock piece for my photo window.
After adhering the ivory card stock to the back of the larger tag, I adhered this unit to the page and added border strips and a pretty sticker across the top. To finish it off, I die-cut some hole reinforcers in two colors, blue and green, as well as the “Heart This” unit from the Wave Pocket die set.
The back side of my dashboard page is now complete and ready for my favorite photo of the month of January.
Next, I die-cut the tabbed page from Planner Essentials 1 (pink floral paper) and stamped the month using the CS116 “Months” stamp set. Then I die-cut January from the Planner Months die set and adhered it to patterned paper, then trimmed out a small calendar and also mounted it to blue patterned paper, and adhered all these elements to the page.
After adding a few more hole reinforcements to the page, it’s done! Next I’ll insert my actual planner pages I’ve created myself on my computer, which are also available for download (ruled or unruled) in my Etsy shop along with the mini calendars. They’ve been designed specifically for the ECD planner just for you ECD fans! I’m creating a video tutorial of this 2021 planner which will be finished this week, so stay tuned for that on my blog and YouTube channel. Thanks so much for visiting today!

Christmas present packaging set

December 6, 2020

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna here today with my last project for this year. Today I’d like to share a little set with you, consisting of a Christmas gitft tag, a Christmas card and a tiny Christmas box.

I’ll share the steps for the box as well as the tag, the card is done in the same way as the tag.

First take a piece of patterend paper in your choice of pattern and colours and die cut it using the Pizza Box die.

Now take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and back it with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. Then die cut the circles, the flower pattern and the scalloped square piece with your die cutting machine.

Next adhere the scalloped square piece onto the box. After that ink the flower piece in two tones (I used Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet and Festive Berries here) to create more interest to the pattern. Then take the negative pieces and ink them blue (I used Distress Ink Salty Ocean for these parts).

Now adhere the flower pattern and the negative (blue inked) pieces in place. Then finish this step of the box by building it together.

Next add the same blue ink onto the bigger circle using an ink blending tool. Then take the smaller circle piece and add a stamped sentiment to it (I used Build Your Own Sentiment 1) and ink the edges red. Now layer the circles on top of each other and add Craft Drops around the inner circle for additional decor.

For the gift tag I combined the Pizza Box die cut set with the Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces.

First die cut the pieces shown in the gallery above. I used white cardstock and the same patterned paper that I used for the box as I wanted to create a fun matching set. After die cutting, repeat the inking, stamping and assembling process like on the box before.

For a fun additional detail I added a stamped sentiment (I used the Winter Sentiments stamp set here) on top of the layered circles for both the card and tag. It just adds a little additional detail to them.

For the card I used the same Pizza Box die cut set and additionally die cut the patterned paper for the background using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set. The other steps are exactly the same like on the tag and the box before.

And by using only three colours it’s easy to keep the set harmonious. This gift set is perfect to carry a bracelet or small jewellery of some kind. If you change the color combination, you can easily do a completely different looking set using the exact same steps. Imagine using black and white and a hint of gold. Since the patterned paper I used is from my older stash, I added a few alternative paper suggestions to the product list below that I think would work nicely with red, white and blue color combination.

I hope that I inspired you with my little Christmas gift set today. This set could also easily be put into mail for those loved ones who we cannot see this year. I wish you all a lovely holiday time even though the situation we are all living in at the moment, is different then usual.

Wishing you all the best for this holiday season and lots of health!
xxx, Sanna

But First Coffee Card

October 11, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my But First Coffee Card.

To create my But First Coffee Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection, the Sidekick Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. You’ll need a couple of pieces of coffee themed patterned paper. I’ve used the Echo Park Paper Collection – Coffee. From one of the patterned papers, you’ll need to die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle. From the other piece of patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. From one of the patterned papers you just die cut the rectangles out of it, die cut the 1 5/8″ Note Piece from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die out of it. Ink the edges of the note piece using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the same patterned paper you just used, die cut the clip from the Planner Essentials – Planner Filmstrip die out of it. Ink the edges of the clip using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Planner Essentials – Planner Patterns die, cut the letters from a piece of black cardstock and a piece of kraft cardstock. Apply a coat of Emboss It Ink to the kraft cardstock and sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Five. Choose two more patterned papers from the coffee collection. From the Sidekick Essentials 4 die, you’ll need the 2 1/8″ and 1 3/4″ circles. Die cut the 2 1/8″ circle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the 1 3/4″ circle out of the other patterned paper.

Step Seven. Die cut the two coffee cups out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the two sized bands once out of kraft cardstock and a second time out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the White Soft Finish Cardstock, you’ll only need the top and bottom pieces, not the band. From the kraft cardstock ones, you’ll only need the bands. Apply Emboss It Ink to the kraft cardstock bands and sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Eight. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched rounded rectangle to the 3 3/4″ fitted rounded rectangle.

Step Nine. Foam square the note piece 3/8″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the two letter pieces together, off set, making sure that the embossed letters are on top. Adhere the clip to the top of the letters as desired. Apply adhesive to the left hand side of the letters and adhere 5/8″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere the 1 3/4″ patterned paper circle to the 2 1/8″ patterned paper circle. Foam square the 2 1/8″ circle to the middle of the letters as desired.

Step Eleven. Adhere the coffee cup pieces to the corresponding cups. Use foam squares and adhesive to adhere the cups to the middle of the 1 3/4″ circle as desired.

Step Twelve. Adhere the But First Coffee circle to the black cardstock circle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the But First Coffee circle to the right of the 2 1/8″ circle as desired.

Step Thirteen. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 3 3/4″ x 10″, score at 5″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Inspire Gift Tag

May 5, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Inspire Gift Tag.

To create my tag, I’ve used a variety of the dies, stamp and stencil from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as a couple of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.

Step One. Die cut the small tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the stripe portion of the Make Your Mark stencil on the middle of the tag. Using a palette knife, put Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Remove the stencil. Once the paste has dried, ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Next, you’ll need two coordinating patterned papers. Die cut the small note piece from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the stitched rectangle from the same die out of the second piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of both pieces, using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die, die cut the curly arrow out of kraft cardstock.

Step Four. From the Blooming Branches die, die cut one branch out of book page and die cut the other branch out of black cardstock.

Step Five. Die cut the stitched label from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tags & Toppers out of a third coordinating pattern paper piece. From the same die, die cut the inspire word out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the label using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Planner Essentials – 8 die, die cut one of the reinforcements out of black cardstock. Cut the reinforcement so that it fits over the circle on the tag and the top ends at the top of the tag.

Step Seven. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the leaves stamp from the First Sights of Spring stamp set and stamp onto a piece of watercolour paper. Colour the leaves in using a waterbrush and the Watercolor Palette. Once the image has dried, fussy cut the image out. Ink the edges of the image using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Cut a piece of burlap that measures 1 3/4″ x 3″.

Step Nine. Adhere the reinforcement circle to the tag. Adhere the burlap 1/4″ from the left and 1/4″ from the bottom of the tag.

Step Ten. Adhere the stitched rectangle 3/8″ from the left side and 1/4″ from the bottom of the note piece. Foam square the note piece 3/8″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the tag. Adhere the arrow to the left hand side of the stitched rectangle.

Step Eleven. Adhere the label 3/4″ from the left and 1/8″ from the bottom of the note piece. Adhere the heart branch to the middle of the label. Adhere the other branch 1/2″ from the left and 1/8″ from the bottom of the note piece.

Step Twelve. Foam square the leaves image to the middle of the branches. Adhere the inspire word to the right hand side of the stitched rectangle and note piece.

Step Thirteen. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the whole the top of the tag.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Inspire Gift Tag.
