A few weeks ago I received my sidekick planner Olive, oh oh, oh, he’s beautiful!! I’m so happy with this planner. Green is one of my favorite colors and then with those beautiful gold speckles incorporated, so cool.
At the moment I’m very busy with a Halloween album but of course there had to be a page in this beautiful planner. I don’t know what I’m going to use this planner for yet, so I just got to work.
With the sidekick planner set 5 I created an extended page.
I’ve decorated the page with graphic 45 design paper, I haven’t added any photos yet but once I know were I’m going to use this planner for, It’s easy to add.
I also covered the back of the page and added a pocket. For the pocket I used Planner Essentials 26 Tags and Toppers.
I fussy cut some mushrooms from the design paper and placed them on the pocket.
I already think it’s a nice page for the coming spring or am I running really fast? 😉 😉
Hello again, Annette Green here today with more pages from my Greenville Planner. We’ve been here in Greenville several months now and starting to have our first Florida visitors and are making new friends too, so that’s what my planner pages are all about this month.
Does that ever happen to you? You start something and suddenly it becomes something completely different than you planned?
Well, to me this happens on a regular basis.
I started a page about week 2 of July but it became a page of my Happy Place. Well, actually a summary of week 2 because I spent all my free time in my Happy Place😉
I’m working on a big project and I can’t and won’t show anything about it until it’s complete. That’s the reason why there are no pictures added to this page yet.
For this page I used Esther’s patterned design paper, Reminiscence, I love it!!!
The left page is made of Soft Finish Cardstock and colored with Oxide Inks gathered twigs, faded jeans and iced spruce. I also added some ink on the patterned paper page so the two would match nicely together.
Between the pages I made a pocket, I’m in love with that die set! On the pocket I adhered the ECD logo and a piece of the banner that sat around the sidekick beach planner. It came with a very sweet note, real happy mail!!
I kept the note and the nice sticker in the pocket.
For the pages I used various Sidekick and Planner Essentials and Art Journal stamps and dies.
I also used Silk Microfine Glitter to color some of my die cuts. I first cut the images out of cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Tape and then sprinkled it with the glitter. This Silk Microfine Glitter, yellow & turquoise really doesn’t give off, I find that a very nice side effect.
I’ve had a lot of fun creating this page again and hopefully I’ve inspired you a little bit.
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I am in love with my Sidekick Planner. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s like the little brother or sister to the regular planner. So stinkin’ CuTe! I’m using mine to record my journey through quarantine and COVID19 issues.
Hello Crafters, today it is Luciana here with a planner spread. This is an interactive page, to keep a picture
Step 1. Stamp on the White Soft Finish Cardstock the following stamps: – the bigger rettangle and for 2 times the slim rectangle with the sharp edges from the set Planner Essential – Retro Label; – the sentiment “I want to remember this” from the set Planner Essential – Remember; – the leaves and the flowers from the set A Field Of Flowers.
Step 2. Color them with the watercolor and cut along the edge.
Step 3. Assemble some floral pieces, the labels and the sentiment like the picture below.
Step 4. cut a pieces of White Soft Cardstock 21cm x 21cm (8,25 x 8, 25 inches), and fold it at 12cm ( 4,7 in). Create the 6 holes for the rings and 1 hole on the opposite side, at about half the height of the page.
Step.5 Die cut from the White Soft Cardstock: – the two tag from the set Planner Essential 2, for two times; – the hole reinforcer from the set Planner Essential 8; – the tab from the set Planner Essential 11. You could use the distress ink pad and the blending tool to create a gradient along the edges of each element.
Step 6. Assemble the pieces like in the picture, including the photo. Use one of the two little tag horizontally, adhering it on the left outside of the page, making sure that the hole of the tag is at the same height as the hole of the page, on the opposite right side. Add a piece of string to the tag.
Step 7. Adhere all the floral pieces on the page.
Step 8. Close the folded page, and adhere on the flap the die cut elements with the sentiment. Use the string of the tag in the hole of the flap, and close it with a bow.
The interactive page is complete, you can put it inside your planner.
Thank you for stopping by today. Happy planning! Luciana
Hello Crafters, today it is Luciana here with a planner spread. This is an example on how you could make several planner inserts using the same technique.
Cut out the ticket page from the set Planner Essential – 11, using the white soft cardstock. Use the distress oxide ink pad to color the edges of the ticket. Than cut a rectangle and the pattern with the letters from the Planner Essential – Planner Patterns. and color both with the same color. Use the stamp from the set Planner Essential – Patterns 2 to create a more interessing background. Distress the edge of the rectangle with a distress tool ( the edge of the scissors eventually works too ).
Glue together the three layers, it will seem like and embossed background.
Prepare the decoration for the planner insert. Die cut from the white soft cardstock 4 pieces of photoframe, using the die from the set Planner Essential – Planner Filmstrip. Adhere together the 4 pieces, to create a heavy frame.
Stamp on a watercolor sheet the leaves from the stamps set A Field of Flowers. Color the leaves with the watercolors, and than cut the twigs with the scissors
Adhere the frame on the ticket insert, and use the twigs to embellish it, as shown in the pictures below.
Stamp the sentiment “Remember the now” from the stamps set Planner Essential – Remember, on a white soft cardstock. Cut out the rectangle and adhere it on the frame of the insert.
I used the same technique to create other two planner insert. In the first on the left I used: the tag die from the set Planner Essential – 4 ; the photo frame die from the set Planner Essential – 4 ; the patterns with the numbers from the set Planner Essential – Planner Patterns ; the sentiment “Hello Everyday life” from the set Planner Essential – Retro Labels Sayings ;
For the insert on the right side, I used: the die from the set Planner Essential – 5 ; the photo frame die from the set Planner Essential – 4 ; the patterns with the rose from the set Planner Essential – 6 .
Thank you for stopping by. Happy planning! Luciana
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I absolutely love the Planner Essentials Line from Elizabeth Craft Designs for documenting special occasions, travel and other bits of life. Today, I am showcasing a page that I created documenting a visit to the National Geographic Museum in Washington DC. I’d like to say that I planned my “green” page for St Patrick’s Day today – but that was really just luck!
