Sometimes we all need…a little magic

May 14, 2021

Wouldn’t you like that, too? A little magic, or help in the household? Well, I do. But with a good schedule it also saves a lot of time and energy. This time I adapted to what I can do and distributed the work throughout the day and the week. This way I also have energy left over for my hobby.

I love Esther’s beautiful paper so I went to work with the Reminiscence the book 2.

I made the basics with Planner Essentials 4. The edges got a lick of distress ink but I didn’t do anything about it. With Sidekick Essentials 8, I made a pocket that could hold a mini-book. I adhered it at the edges so there’s another ticket behind it. On the left corner I used another stamp from the CS134 Retro labels set. Below that, I made a trifold page with the Puzzle page from the new Art Journal collection. I only adhered it to the edges. He’s dressed with a “note for myself.” But first coffee! For that I used the dies from the Sidekick Essentials 4. Next to it I used a stamp from the fountain pen CS216 art journal chick that refers like an arrow to the coffee cup. I colored the pen using the watercolor palette.

In the pocket I made a mini-booklet with a page for every day. The days of the week I made with the Sidekick Essentials 3 set and for the tags I used Planner Essentials 26. For the narrow one I cut of a little trip on both sides. On the small tag I adhered Mary Poppins and on the big tag Bert. These ones are from a set called “the park” by Tim Holtz.

Mary Poppins stands for magic for me and Bert for a little help if necessary. I wrote the text with a stencil….no, my handwriting is really not that beautiful!!! The minibook received a stamp from the CS130 Bullet Journaling 3 set on each page.

The page is finished with reinforcements from Planner Essentials set 22. For the strip of arrows I used Planner essentials 14.

Now I have to fill everything in but I’m sure you’re not interested in my household schedule hihi. Otherwise…… I’d love to hear it. Honestly, this fröbelen was much more fun than that household but secretly I enjoy it enormously when my house is nice and clean. Maybe I should look for a little “Magic” or a help in the household?

Hope you find a little bit of magic for your household and a little inspiration by my page.

With love,

Marjolijn.

Florida – Virtual Travels

May 8, 2021

Karen here today. As things are starting to open back up, I’m getting more and more excited about the possibility of travel, and I’m still enjoying adding to my “Places I’ve Been” Journal. Today, I used the BEAUTIFUL new Rainbow of Happiness Papers to create a couple journal pages of my trip to Florida in 2006.

I love this fun, bright colorful paper and thought it perfect to use for pictures of fun, bright and colorful theme parks we visited in Florida! For the page base, I used Planner Essentials 3. I die cut a Fitted Heart and placed it off to one side and used letters from Planner Essentials 23 to cut the word “Florida” after backing that piece of paper with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. (Makes assembly SO easy). I added a couple postage stamps and the little banners that were part of the Planner Essentials 3 set. Finally, I added a funny little sentiment using my Dymo labeler. And of course, no lay-out is done without some fun reinforcements. The small circles are part of the Reinforcement Variety Pack. The stars are part of a Planner Essentials that is no longer offered. The sentiment stamped into the tab is from the Family Stamps.

On the back of the page, I added a Giraffe (so cute) and used similar products to the front side. On our trip, we had the opportunity to pet and feed giraffes, and that adorable die marks that occasion perfectly. The “Wow Moment” stamp is from the Months Stamps.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Relaxe….

May 2, 2021

Oh, I’m having a hard time with that. I’m always busy, never really resting. Haha, many of you will recognize this. But after contracting Covid 19 I had to slow down. However, I myself felt that I was already doing nothing. After all, I am not currently working and in the household I did not do much. I was just too tiring, even taking a walk was no longer possible. Until I was instructed by the occupational therapist to write down what I did. Well, it turned out I still did quite a lot!! I have included that overview of a week in this page. Because yes, since this week I have a little energy to work on my hobby. I won’t bother you with my weekly overview but I want to show you this page.

Esther has made another beautiful new paper book, Reminiscence the Book 2. Personally, I think it might be even more beautiful than the 1st book. Secretly a shame to cut into it, but I put the scissors in. So that’s what I started working on. For the page I used the Planner Essentials 22 set. Planner pocket 3 TOP LOADING. I filled the window with vellum.

On the page that is in it I made a pocket with Sidekick Essentials set 16 – Seed packet which I dressed with Sidekick Essentials set 17 – Window folder set. All edges are inked with distress ink.

On the back I made a notebook with 7 pages, for every day of the week one. For this I used printer paper and the stamp set CS132 – Important memo. With some stamps I put a quote on each page, these stamps are not from Elizabeth Craft Designs.               

I decorated the window with some dies from the Sidekick Essentials set 11 – This week. Behind the viewmaster wheel I pasted a circle and stamped the word RELAX on it twice. Also with stamps from my own collection. The stain and flowers come from the Art collection of Ilse and Charlene, Budding florals and Puzzle page.

And then the Puttertje oh oh oh how beautiful!!! I really didn’t want to put anything over that so that’s the front page of my “BOOK OF ME”

I hope this page inspires you a little bit, see you next time

With love,

Marjolijn

Nature Notebook Planner Part 2 with Video!

April 4, 2021
Hello everyone, Annette Green here today with four more pages in my Nature Notebook Planner. I pick up where I left off before using the newest Planner Essentials dies and stamps and I’ve created another “Craft With Me” style video for you to follow along as I share my thought process, tips and techniques as I create the pages.
I am loving the seasons here in Greenville, South Carolina and am learning so much about the local birds, plants and flowers. I am still working on the Winter time, but currently am taking LOTS of photos of our Spring here and can’t wait to continue on in my planner and share them with you.
I am constantly finding that I need more room for more photos, so in the video I share with you how I create added “real estate”, as they say, to gain more space to add more photos. I hope you have a moment to watch the video. Thanks in advance for watching! I’ve included the full supply list below.

My Virtual Travel to Illinois

March 5, 2021

Karen here. I’m still doing some virtual travel through my “Places I’ve Been” planner/journal. It’s been a kick to look back through old pictures and to create pages. Today’s creation is all about a trip to Chicago back in 2007. One of the highlights of the trip was a Cubs game at historic Wrigley Field, so I chose a color palette of blue and red.

I’ve been creating two-page layouts (front and back) for each place I document. The paper I used in this lay-out is from Reminiscence, The Book. Gorgeous papers in blue and red!

The page base I used in the lay-out is from Planner Essentials 28. I love the beautiful deckled edge on this particular base. The letters are from the Butterfly Pocket Insert dies.

On the backside, there was some words on the paper that I didn’t really want in my page, so I added the polkadot paper that I die cut with the Fitted Circles dies and then ran back through with the page base.

And I LoVe playing with reinforcements. I always add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the paper before die cutting. The beige banners are cut from a die in the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1, and the stars are part of Planner Essentials 14.

Thank you for stopping by today. I have linked up the supplies below.

Craftily yours, Karen

2021 Planner Making Basics and Tips Video

March 3, 2021
Hello again everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with brand new pages in a brand new planner for 2021. I’ve been getting a lot of requests to create a video for beginners at planner making, so I’ve created one with that purpose in mind. Even if you’re an experienced planner maker, you may find some of my process interesting.
My video takes you from learning about the different size planners, the differences between Planner Essentials and Sidekick Essentials dies, learning about paper thickness, how to begin your first few pages, and other tips like how I print my photos. It’s a “Craft With Me” style video, so I hope you take a moment to watch the process. I’ve listed all the supplies below that I’ve talked about in the video.

Raccoon Love

February 28, 2021

Welcome! Samantha here sharing a heart inspired card I created using Elizabeth Craft Designs Raccoon die which I decided to pair with a die from Planner Essentials #20. Cute Raccoons and Love are a perfect mix!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Create a card front using white card (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm)

Step 2: Using black, dark grey, and light grey die cut the Raccoon and loosely assemble.

Step 3: Using yellow, blue, and pink cardstock die cut the ‘LOVE’ die, use the negatives and trim as shown below. Keep the die cut letters for the next step.

Step 4: Adhere the ‘LOVE’ negatives to black card stock, and insert some of the letters as shown below.

Step 5: Adhere these to the white card front. Add machine stitched details (optional).

Step 6: Complete assembly of the Raccoon and adhere it to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins, a twine bow and a few love hearts. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

I love how this card came together! The colours pop off the card and the raccoon is super cute!

Happy Crafting!

Samantha

Fave moment

February 24, 2021

Hi Crafters! Lisanne here. I’m here again with a new blog post. This time I made a Sidekick Planner page with the cute Honey Bear.

For the base I used the Sidekick Essentials 4 and the Reminiscene Paper pad. On this page I glued the Honey page (Sidekick Essentials 13). I colored all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

So first I made this cute Honey Bear with the Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. I used Ground Espresso and Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs for the bear. The honey jar is made with Brushed Corduroy and Fossilized Amber. I also colored the little bee by myself with Distress Ink (Fossilized Amber and Black Soot).

I adhered the bear to a tag from the Sidekick Essentials 11. I like the little stitch line at the tag. I also made a little tag with the sentence “Fave Moment” from CS120. Behind pink design paper I put a little piece of the Journal Edges from the Art Journal Special. It is just a little piece but it looks great!

In the right corner I used the Jungle Leaves with some flowers. I did the same with the left page, so I wanted to do the same at the right page. The large flower is from Florals 8 and the little flowers from Florals 1. This time I cut them out design paper. The leave is colord with Crushed Olive. These flowers makes me so happy!

I put a sequin in the center of the large flowers and added some reinforcers. These kind of pages are so great to make! Like all the cute characters but also the planner dies.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much I enjoyed creating this page. Thank you so much for reading this post and have a great day!

Picture This

February 21, 2021
It’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little photo frame that is perfect for any child’s room where they can change the photo whenever they like. They can use it to display their favorite photos weather they are real or imaginary.

Begin by using the Castle Folding Card, cutting out the main part with the window section twice. Cut one down the center as shown above.

Line up the sections of the castle and glue together. Stamp some bricks using the stamp from the Prince & Frog Sentiments. Add some color, I used Watering Can Archival Ink and a blending brush.

Back the windows with the color of your choice, assemble the Prince and Princess and then add the photo frame from the Planner Essentials 3.

Crease the castle on each side, shown with the red arrows above.

When adding the backing for the frame – leave an open space just above the word PHOTO, shown with the white arrow above. This way the photos can be easily changed by sliding them into the opening.

For the base, simply cover a piece of chipboard with paper. In the photo above you will see that I marked where I wanted to place my castle and frame.

To make the frame stand up – cut 2 strips of cardstock 1″ X 5″ and crease ever inch. Fold on the creases and then glue together to form a box. Glue box at each end of the castle and then glue to base at an angle. This will keep the castle from falling over. Another piece of cardstock was added to the center section to help hold in place.

All that is left is to add the photo of your choice. A little crown was added to the photo just for fun.

Have a Royal Day,

Sandy
