Planner Essentials


October 4, 2023

Hi everyone,

Today I want to share you this project with the new special kit from Esther. I had a fun play time with this kit. You can make an easy card with the planner dies.

I started with the base planner dies (Planner Essentials 56) and of course the new paperpad Petal Pink. At the top I adhere the new frame dies. It is a great dies for small pictures or sentiments. But I only made the word ‘weekend’ which came in the set to.

I used the cute clips from the heart overlay dies set to hang on the letters.

In this set there are also small start to put on the stars at the page. You can make them in every colour you want. I choosed pink from the newest paperpad.

I adhere the letters with twine in a half heart shape. At least I added a small tag and some reinforcers. At the back I will adhere some pictures of the Dutch Planner retreat.

I hope you will have a lot of fun with this kit to. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon.

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Grand Fun

August 17, 2023

Karen here. I absolutely love the Planner Essentials line, and I love even more how one can mix and match from the other lines to create absolutely fun pages. The pages I’m highlighting today are all about my husband’s grand-daughter. So much fun and so sweet. (Sorry for covering her adorable face…)

She took a trip to the strawberry patch with her mom and dad. This page highlights some of the fun they had using Planner Essentials 41 for the page base. I love the perfection of those Strawberry die cuts that I colored with Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.

On the back of the page is another Strawberry, and I added a bit of bright red bric-brac ribbon. I love the leaf reinforcements!

The page base here is from Planner Essential 56 (which is a must-have with all of the fun tickets that are out now!) For the leaf border, I was inspired the ECD Planner Facebook page by another crafter and added flowers from the Florals 9 set to mine. The titles are cut and framed with Stitched and Fitted Circles.

More florals on the back page. I think that the leaves I used are now retired, but the Elegant Leaves 1 would certainly work…. Love all of the variations of reinforcements out there.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

France in a Sidekick

June 14, 2023

Karen here! I’m excited to be sharing with you a few Sidekick Essentials pages I made for a trip scrapbook. My parents and I had planned to spend about 3 weeks in France back in May 2020. Of course, that got delayed, but we finally did it in August/September 2022. I created two copies of each page, so I could give my mom and dad their own album. Each of these pages has a smidge of the Everyday Elements release from Annette. Fun!

First up is the cover. I kept this page pretty simple, but at it’s center is one of the flowers from the Playful Flowers set. So sweet. The page base is a Sidekick Essentials 4 with the “green” part cut from the Sidekick Pocket Page Fillers 1. The word “France” is cut with the Alphabet Tabs, and I used Planner Essentials 56 (tickets) to cut the month names, and the Ticket Stamps for the 2022.

One of our epic adventures was a trip to climb Pont du Gard. (Yes, I did it – it’s a HUGE beautiful bridge!) The page base here is a Sidekick Essentials 7. I used a Label Tab stamp at the top, and added some Lace Borders to this page. The “Epic” die is from Sidekick Essentials 8. The paper is from a combination of Books 2 and 5 Reminiscence.

And on the back of the page is more pictures from the Pont du Gard climb. Stunning view at the top.

Another page is from our day at Villandry. What an amazing experience to visit the homes of royalty from hundreds of years ago! Just beautiful. The page base here is a Sidekick Essentials 10. The “Love this View” is from a retired page.

More pictures on the back along with a couple flourishes from the Fancy Flourishes set. I added a stamp from Adventure Awaits. And finally, no page is complete without the amazing reinforcements from the Reinforcement Variety Packs!

Craftily yours, Karen

Special Memories

April 27, 2023

Karen here! I’m sharing a card and a Planner Essentials page using the fun Everyday Elements collection! The card will be used as part of a special gift for someone special, and the pages are for Sadie’s album. Sadie is my guy’s dog who has cancer, so I am creating a memory book for him to celebrate her.

First up is this fun card using the Layered Honeybee, Small Doily and and Lace Borders die sets along with a sentiment from the Happy stamps. I absolutely love that bee, and he comes with the fun honeycomb too. The Lace Border dies are long enough for a Planner Essentials page and also can be cut to use just a piece like I did under the sentiment.

The front side of Sadie’s page is inspired by a lay-out I saw Annette do in the ECD Planners group on Facebook. So much fun inspiration there! The page base is from the Planner Essentials 41 set. I also added a couple tickets from the Planner Essentials 56 set (that I stamped with a Let’s Stick Together stamp). I then embellished with a Lace Border and added a flower from the Playful Flowers set.

On the back, I kept the lay-out pretty simple to focus on the fun that Sadie was having running through the tall grass. I did add a Playful Flower and another one of the Lace Borders to the page. And, of course, no page is complete without some reinforcements. These are from the Reinforcement Variety Pack 3 and are stuck on the page with some 101mm Double Sided Adhesive!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Documenting Arizona

March 22, 2023

Karen here sharing a couple Planner Essentials pages from a recent trip my guy and I made with his dog on a road trip to Arizona. We got to see amazing fun sights like the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Winslow Arizona (where we stood on a corner). I created a couple pages – one for my Places I’ve Been album and another for Sadie’s album!

The page base for this first page (for Sadie’s album) is from Planner Essentials 39 and is Bellrose Pink paper. I also used some orange and pink from the Reminiscence Book 2 for highlights. The square elements, camera, and the flag are from the 39 set. I also added some letters using the Alphabet Tabs set. The hearts are in the Winter Bird set.

On the back, I used the Winter Bird as an element. It was SO cold on this trip that we even had to put Sadie on her leash.

This page is for my Places I’ve Been album and uses Planner Essentials 6 along with the Alphabet Tabs and dies from the File Folder Set 1. I used that fun picture in Sedona again, but this album is mine….and Sadie’s album is at my guy’s house 🙂 The stamp is from Destination Phrases.

On the back are more elements from the File Folder 1 set. The stamps are from the Moods set. Of course no page is complete without reinforcements from the variety packs.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Planner Fun in New Mexico

February 22, 2023

Karen here. My guy and I recently took a road trip to New Mexico with his dog. Today’s post is documentation of that trip for two books I have. One is Sadie’s book that I am making for my guy of his beloved pet; the other is for my Places I’ve Been album where I document trips I have made. We ended up in Roswell, NM – such a cool place. I used the Monsters as Aliens in these pages.

First up is Sadie’s page. Of all the places we went, Roswell was definitely the most pet friendly. She was invited into every place we went. (One of us usually stands outside…store owners came out with dog cookies to ask her in!) The page uses the Planner Essentials 38 over a Planner Essentials 4 page base. I used Monster 3 die for my alien. The paper on both of the pages is a combination of Reminiscence 2 and 5. The two stamp sets used were the Monster Hugs and Vacay Phrases sets.

On the back of the page are a couple more pictures. That gorgeous “Hello Love” stamp is from the Block Words – Hello Set.

This page is for my Places I’ve Been set. The page base is from Planner Essentials 28. It features a Monster 2 as my alien. He’s hugging a Stitched Heart. I used the wristband for our entry into the International Alien Museum as an embellishment.

On the back of the page are some pictures from Albuquerque and Lincoln County. The label tags are from the December Daily set. Of course, no page is completely complete without some reinforcements from one of the Reinforcement Variety Packs!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Road Trip

January 25, 2023

Karen here! Back in December, my guy and I went on a very long road trip through California, Arizona and New Mexico along some parts of Route 66. We took his dog Sadie (who is surviving cancer and is such a sweetie). On the whole trip, I was envisioning using the Safari Jeep to make a Planner Essential page. I ended up doing both a Sidekick-sized page (for my “him and me” album) and a regular sized page (for Sadie’s album).

First up, the regular-sized Planner Essentials page for Sadie’s album. I used a Planner Essentials 4 for the base and added the Safari Jeep with a picture of us in the car. The jeep is cut with a combination of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and some brown and black cardstock. The jeep is so easy to put together as I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before die cutting for the pieces on top. The hearts down the side are from the Planner Essentials 40 set (and is die cut also with the 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. The huge arrow pointing to sweet Sadie is from the Library Pocket set. And I added a Fitted Circle die cut for interest.

On the back of the page, I added some cute pictures of her int he back of the car. The silver die cut on the side is also from the Planner Essentials 40 set. Car Vibes is cut with the stitched letters in the Planner Essentials 37 set. I added another couple Fitted Circles on top.

Next up, I adhered another jeep to the front of a large Stitched Circle die. I did a second pass on my die cutting machine with the Sidekick Essentials 5 (that lopped off the bottom of the circle and cut the holes). This page is for my Sidekick-sized Planner in which I keep memories of him and me.

On the back, I added a picture of our favorite stop (Sedona, AZ) and some journaling (along with another Fitted Circle. And for all these pages, of course, I added a fun reinforcements from one of the Reinforcement Variety Packs.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Sadie in the House

January 3, 2023

Karen here. Happy New Year! Most of my posts recently have been about my December Day-by-Day album but I’m taking a break today to add to my Sadie album. Sadie is my guy’s dog. She is battling cancer, and I’m creating an album for him full of memories of his sweet dog. Today’s pages are Sadie at home while she’s snoozing.

I used the fun Dog House die from Joset to decorate the Planner Pocket 2 (that sits on a Planner Essentials 4 page base. I stamped the word “Sweet” on the front of the page using the Block Alphabet stamp set.

The tags inside the pocket are die cut with the Nested Tags and are decorated with pictures of a snoozing Sadie as well as stamps from the Family set. They are perfect for these tags.

On the back is are more adorable photos. That bottom one with her tongue hanging out makes me giggle. She sure was super sleepy!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Merry Day After Christmas

December 26, 2022

Karen here hoping your Christmas Day was filled with love and good memories. There’s no better way to preserve those memories than in a scrapbook! Creating pages using the Planner Essentials line is easy and fun! Today’s pages are for Day 25 of my December Day-by-Day album! (I created these pages right before Christmas, so I’ll add pictures to them later…)

I used a Planner Essentials 55 (over a Planner Essentials 4) for the front of the page. How fun are these file folder pockets. I added a strip of paper to each of the tops of the pockets and dotted the bottom to make sure they stood out. I used the Library Pocket Filler Cards (one of them is cut down to fit the page) for the tags and added the small heart from the Gnomes set to keep the cards from slipping down. I’ll add pictures to the tags soon. And, of course, you can see that I added a sweet Gnome too! That fun ribbon is from a present someone wrapped for me. I didn’t yet open the present, but I had to steal the ribbon off of it.

On the back of the page is a space for more pictures along with a Stitched Circle and another Gnome. All of the paper I used on these pages is from the Christmas Lives Here set, except for this green snowflake paper. Of course, no page is complete without some fun reinforcements. (I’m addicted to them!)

Craftily yours, Karen

December Day-by-Day

December 12, 2022

Karen here. I have SO much fun every year creating a day-by-day scrapbook for December using the fabulous Planner Essentials Line! What a treasure these scrapbooks are to look at in future years! This year, I’m getting a bit of a late go because I was on a road trip, but it sure does make the first few days easy to find pictures! I used Annette’s sidekick planner class for inspiration as well as the prompts provided in the ECD Planner Group on Facebook.

How SWEET is the new Santa Claus from Joset?! I used the Christmas Lives Here paper for the page base diecut from Planner Essentials 4 and added a panel (from that collection as well). The 2022 is from the FuN Alphabet Tabs collection. The word “days” is cut using the Planner Essentials 23 set.

The day 1 prompt is “Let the Fun Begin” and I sure did. The picture is when we had just started off on our road trip! The paper is again from the Christmas Lives here collection (that comes in the December Sidekick Class along with the Sidekick Essentials 25). The number, tab, circles and mittens are in the Sidekick Essentials collection.

Day 2’s prompt is “My Favorite Color.” When asked, I usually say “green” – but in this case, I was at the Grand Canyon on December 2, so I am using “Nature” as my favorite color. The Grand Canyon had amazing hues of tan, green, red, brown and grays. Beautiful! No page is complete without some reinforcements, in my humble opinion. I linked up all three amazing sets below.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
