The Good Life – Seed Packet Mini Album

March 22, 2021

Hello Friends and welcome! It is Karan here to share a project I designed using the new Sidekick Release. For those who know how much I love albums, I also love to create mini albums too. 

This one is designed using the Seed Packet Die from Sidekick Essentials 16. 

To begin with I cut the seed pack out five times using paper from 49 and Market. I cut vellum to go on the inside of the packet for the window. I cut out extras thinking I might make the album larger but ended up going with 5 packets instead of 8.

Then I assembled them.

I then cut the side panel from the same sidekick set and created the pages and continued to decorate them. I love tags and cut out a tag for each page just as an added layer and photo mat for some of my photos. This tag was cut from Planner Essentials 2, which I also cut to go inside each opening of the Seed Packet page. I am going to share images from this little mini and then add the dies I used below. Hope you enjoy this mini project.

And then details for the cover:

I cut doubles for the large floral and the medium size floral for the cover, two sets of leaves and then I used the skeleton leaf from the Sidekick Essential 16 set. Ii love how the florals shape so beautifully.

I hope that I inspired you to create a mini album using this Seed Pocket Set. It makes a perfect little mini album. 

Until Next time

Happy Scrapping!

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!
