Take it easy

May 26, 2022

Hi all! I have a new planner page to share with you. I’ve made the right side another time so now I need to make the left side. When I make pages next to each other I use the same colors and the same elements. For this page I used the new Special Kit ‘Suitcase’, some Planner Essentials stencils, Planner Essentials dies and the cute Octopus from Joset.

For this page I used some older dies and Planner Essentials 1 with a tab at the top. I used Paint On Denim paper for this part. Then I used the dies from Planner Essentials 29 as layer. For this piece I added some structure with the newest Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide ‘Walnut Stain’.

Before I adhere this part at the base I gave the sides some Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. All the pieces I used are inked with the same color. At the right side I added a strip from an older die.

The next step is making the suitcase. I need 2 suitcases for this card because I want to open the suitcase.

As you can see I added a blue wave at the bottom of the suitcase which is included in the kit. I made a score line in this die so you can adhere this at the back and front of the suitcase.

So back to the front. First I made some structure again the Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide Ink Stormy Sky. Then I made the boat and the suitcase straps. To close the suitcase I used a piece of hemp cord.

Then the inside of the suitcase. At the top I made a little pocket with on top the new stamp from CS269 which is in the suitcase. I also used some leftover pieces and a little tab.

At the bottom I used the same colors.

For this part I used the Octopus with his wheel and also stamp CS269. I stamped ‘take it easy’ in 2 pieces so you can make it smaller.

Before I adhere the suitcase at the page I made something behind it. I used the fishtail dies from the suitcase kit. Behind this dies I put some elements from the Reminiscene the Book 4 but also some dies which I kept from other projects, like the Photo Film Slides and the structure die.

Here you can see the whole page when the suitcase is folded out.

I hope you like this page. I had a lot of fun making this page.

Thank you for reading! See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Happy Birthday

May 23, 2022
Last Saturday it was my father's birthday. He turned 60. I usually make something fun. This time I started working with the new suitcase kit.
I made a photo book of this with different photos. I also used various nice dies from Joset.
I die cut the front page from denim. For reinforcement I used double sided adhesive behind it. I used design paper for the back of it. I die cut the suitcase strap out of cork.

I used double design paper for all pages because the design paper was only printed single. It is also a bit firmer.

On the next page I used a photo of my parents together. On the right I used Joset's whale. The whole book is in the sea/water theme. This is because my parents have their own boat and are very fond of it.

On the next page I added two photos of my parents boat and decorated the pages with some fun dies from Esther's nautical theme collection.  
The next page shows 2 pictures of their birds. The bird on the right they have had for several years. The bird on the left is a birthday present. I used the nice parrot from Joset and made it in the colors of the real parrot.

On this page that follows are the 3 grandchildren (our own kids), they all 3 have a life jacket on because they can sail on the boat with their grandparents. These pages are also decorated with different dies from the kit and from the planner collection.
On the last page I added another photo from the grandchildren and on the left the super cute octopus from Joset. This could not be missed in this booklet as he is my favorite from the sea collection. He is so very cute!
To make the booklet complete, I decorated the back in the same style as the front with the suitcase made of denim and cork. 
All pages are finished with reinforcers. These are also included in the suitcase kit.

This was my project for today. I hope I was able to inspire you again. The suitcase kit is really very cool!

Greetings, 
Alice

Mine are vintage photo and salvaged patina from the Distress collection. Below you can see a simple step by step tutorial of how i made this beautiful page:

and here is the finished page in my planner. I love the vintage, grungy feel this page has. The Planner stencils are a dream to work with and are of a great quality. What a great addition to the Planner Essentials Collection!

Summer

April 21, 2022

Hi all! I hope you doing all fine? I’m here with a new blogpost with the Time to travel collection and some dies from Joset and Ilse & Charlene.

I used the Porthole page for this card. I die-cut it two times and just used two holes.

I want to make a book of it. So I used the Journal Edges and a piece of kraft cardstock.

At this piece I used a stamp to pimp it. I think it looks realy grungy.

In the portholes I adhere the circle with the word ‘summer’ and the cute hippo with his safari hat. He is looking through the porthole.

At the back you see the back of the Hippo with his tail. I only adhere the circles from the porthole inside.

I stamped a sentiment in one of the portholes and add some washi tape.

This is my porthole card with the Hippo. I’ll hope you liked it.

Thankyou for reading!

Kind regards Lisanne

Fun Sidekick memory page with…a cow!

April 14, 2022

Hello everybody and welcome. Today it is my turn to make a blog and, boy did I have fun making this. The project I am doing today is a page in a Planner Essentials Sidekick planner that is near to my heart. Last year I went on a special trip with my mum to Austria and in this memory planner I am documenting this trip. The running theme throughout this fun book will be de critters from Joset. And today the cute cow will do the honours.

I started of by colouring a piece of the soft finish card stock with Distress oxide black sooth. I used that to die cut out some of the elements of the cow and the photo frame
After cutting out the photo frame I splattered som water droplets to create spots on the black.

New Bucket (of Strawberries) Summer Planner Spread

April 11, 2022
Hello again everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with some more Summer planner pages featuring the new Flower Pot/Bucket die set from Joset. I combined Planner Essentials dies with the flower pot and Strawberries die to showcase some cute photos of my dog Suki eating strawberries, as well as a visit from my parents last year. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” style video if you’d like to follow along as I design and assemble these pages.
As I describe in the video, to make more room for journaling and large sized photos, I added a half-page in the middle of my two full-size pages using the Planner Essentials 14 Bookmark 1 set. This is an interesting way to layer and still see some of the elements from the other pages peeking through.
The star of the show, besides Suki, is the rusty bucket full of strawberries. With a few alcohol inks and some silver metallic cardstock, you can get the same look quickly and easily. It makes a fun embellishment to the page to help tie everything together. I hope you take a moment to watch the video, as I share some techniques I used and helpful design tips along the way. All products I’ve used today are linked below, in addition to some of the other new dies I showed in the video which I used on other projects. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!

Swimming Diploma

April 4, 2022

Hello everyone! How are you today? Today I want to show you a planner page. This time I made a page for our youngest son who was allowed to swim for his swimming diploma. Last Saturday the time had come and he made it!

For this page I used the beautiful paper of Modascrap (sailer’s life) Modascrap is one of my favorite papers! This topic fit wright in! Also the colors are matching with the swimming diploma.

First I cut out the page. This is a page from the new planner serie (porthole page 1937). For the protholes there is a matching die in this set. I cut out two of them with jeans fabric. On the backside of it I used clear double sided adhesive. Do not remove the layer of the adhesive. The fabric will stretch. Use glue to fix it.

The middle one I made red with the distress ink color Aged Mohagany. This because here comes the photo and so it can stand out a bith with the other two.

Than printed a photo with the selphy printer. Size it up and make it in the middle window. I’m so proud of our litlle boy!

At the bottom window I used the whale of Joset’s collection. It fit’s perfectly with the theme and the paper. On the background of the window some paper also from the Modascrap theme. The whale is just as happy as out son.

For the top window also some nice decoration. The fish belongs to the set of the planner page. (1937) The water plants on the background belongs to a summer kit. The nice text comes from a set of the sidekick planner (1769)

Finally, some appropriate re-inforcers. Of course also in the same theme as the rest of the pages.

Hopefully you like this page as much as I do and see you next time!

Squirrelly about Camping!

March 30, 2022

Hi all, Happy Thursday!! Well how exciting is this my second blog post in one week!!! I am super happy to share with you my squirrelly camping pages. This squirrel die set is my new addiction I can not get enough of these squirrels. They are super fun and easy to make, so lets get started.

Step 1: Cut your main pages with your designer paper using Planner Essentials #4, next I cut out two strips of designer paper measuring 3″ x 8 1/4″ and inked the edges with brown ink. Then I adhered the paper strips to the left hand side on the left planner page and right side on the right planner page. Then cut two mats from coordinating designer paper with the round mat die from Planner Essentials 22 and adhere them to the center of your pages as per the picture above.

Step 2: Out of dark and light brown card stock cut out your two squirrels from Joset’s collection #1930 and ink the edges with brown ink. I added a little pink to the cheeks and highlighted with a white gel pen. After your cheek’s are dry I assembled my squirrels as per the picture above. With the Tent Die #1669 cut out your latten from red and yellow cardstock, ink with brown ink and assemble.

Step 3: Out of designer paper cut one tent – cut your poles from dark brown cardstock ink and assemble. Using Forest Accessories Die #1688 cut out your mushrooms with red, white and a light tan colored cardstock. Next I cut out the logs, stump and stick from woodgrain paper to create a cool texture. The bushes are cut from light and dark green cardstock, cut one marshmallow from white cardstock and ink with a bit of grey around the edges. My final step is to ink all the edges and assemble as per the picture above.

Step 4: Assemble and adhere your left planner page as per the picture above, the squirrel is pop dotted using some foam dots or tape.

Step 5: Assemble and adhere your right planner page as per the picture above, the squirrel is pop dotted using some foam dots or tape.

Step 6: Once you have assembled both your pages, I cut the word PHOTOS from Planner Essentials 31 and the clip from Sidekicks Essentials 5 all cut from dark brown cardstock.

Step 7: Attach your choice of reinforcement rings.

Last step is to add your favorite pictures and attach your clip and PHOTOS word.

**Optional** I always love to add a little white paint by speckling.

I hope your enjoyed todays blog post! Have a wonderful crafty day. >Katie<

Making week 5: Planner Essentials 41 with a twist

February 17, 2022

Hello my fellow crafters and welcome. My name is Devid and I am so happy to be back on the Elizabeth Craft Design blog. One of the things I love about the dies from the Planner Essentials collection is the versatility of them. I was thinking about what to do for week 5 and then it hit me. I decided to use the Planner Essentials 41 Rounded Corners Page but to use it in a different way: Make pockets out of it. And I am happy to see it worked out perfectly.

step 1: Die cut all the elements you need. Since I used thin paper for the base page I used the thicker paper from Reminiscence the book 3 to create the mat layer
Using the die with the 2 windows I cut out 2 pieces. one from the thiner paper I used as a base page, one from the thicker card. I want to make the pockets out of this die so I needed this to be more firm.
Step 3: Using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Double Sided Adhesive tape (I used 6 mm but you can use wider) on the back of the Matt layer and attach to the base page

I realy hope you like this one as much as I did! All products I used are listed below. Thank you for reading along and I hope to see you soon again!

Altering Photo Pocket Pages to Fit the Sidekick

February 14, 2022
Hello again everyone, Annette Green here today with a few ideas on how to use the new Photo Pocket Pages (designed for the regular planner) in your Sidekick planner. I was curious to figure out if this was possible, so I did some experimenting and came up with something fun you may like to try. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” style video as I created my pages and I share the steps to altering the pocket pages.
I returned to my nature planner which is the Espresso Sidekick to create a few simple pages. The pocket pages are great to work with because not only do they protect my photos, they allow for some fun layering ideas and that interesting “see through” effect to the pages behind them. The first page option is to simply trim the top and bottom off the narrowest pocket page in the package, as shown on the left here.
I’ve created this split-in-two pocket for a second option, as you’ll see in the video. All you need is a craft knife, ruler and mat. The pages cut easily and also sew quite nicely on the sewing machine. If sewing isn’t your thing, closing up the cut edge can easily be done with some washi tape or coordinating paper. I hope you take a moment to check out the video, and perhaps you’ll give this a try too.
