Oh Happy Day!! That’s exactly what I thought when I saw the new collection for the Planner Essentials. So many amazing new dies, it was hard to choose which one to use first because everything is equally fun. So quickly into my hobby loft!
This page I made with the Planner Essentials 28 – Globe, I love it!! The page itself has a very nice edge. The globe can be die cut in various ways. For this page I chose to punch the sphere out of the paper and then make a pocket with it. How I did that you can see in the pictures below.
The tickets in the pocket I made using Planner Essentials – 30 Wave pocket. I also used the nice sentiment die included in this set. The paper is from the new collection as well and called Reminiscence “the book”, so incredibly beautiful!!
The label is from an older set “Planner labels” and so are the reinforcements, although there is also a very nice new set with another 12 super fun new ones!
On the corner of the tag I made a mini pocket with the text where I can place the smaller tag behind. Ohh and those cute little birds, they’re also from Elizabeth Craft Designs (CS027 – Feathered Friends Clear Stamps).
And that’s how I made the pocket with the globe. First, I die cut the globe out of a piece of cardstock that is big enough to die cut a pocket with. Then I put about a third of the sphere with the circular die and take my pocket die to die cut.
I hope that I inspired you a little bit and that you will have as much fun with the new dies as I did!

Karen here today sharing a dashboard for my new journal that will be a scrapbook of all of the places I’ve been. Since I haven’t been able to travel (much) during the CV19, this will be a fun way to relive those memories!
I decided to use the gorgeous Summer Art paper and die cut two circles using the Fitted Circles Dies. I layered these circles up on blue and grey cardstock that was die cut with the Dotted Scallop Circles dies.
To turn these circles into “planner pages”, I used the die from Planner Essentials 5 to cut the holes as seen above. Then I had the fun in decorating them!
The “gold” in the banner (cut using a Celebration Flags die) is created using 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock that I rubbed with Opal Polish by Creative Expressions (color is Golden Glow). The “blue” is black cardstock rubbed with Opal Polish in Blue Parakeet and Golden Glow. The die for this is from the Decorative Insert set. Those fun letters are from the Butterfly Pocket Insert. I love how all these dies “fit” together so nicely! And, of course, I had to add some reinforcements that were from Planner Labels (hearts) and the Reinforcement Variety Pack (small circles).
For this one, I used many of the same products as above and I added a heart that can be found in the Decorative Insert set. I added a few dots made with the Metallic Gold Craft Drops and a few diamond dots from my stash.
I’m going to have SUCH fun creating pages for my new planner/scrapbook. Hope you like my circle-fun pages!
Craftily yours, Karen

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? 😉 😉
Thank you for visiting and see you next time!

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.
When I got the super cool stuff for the Sidekick planner and saw that incredibly cool envelope I immediately thought….That’s a lot of fun to make a mini album. So I did but it wasn’t easy. In the end I am very satisfied and now it’s standing in my craftroom.
I made 5 envelopes, but before I glued them together, I tied them first. Like you tie a book. I found a tutorial on You-tube.
I made a cover with craft-board and added a ribbon in between so you can close the book with a bow.
The pendant is made with shrink-plastic and a stamp.
In each envelope there is a card with a picture on it. The cards are made with the note pieces set and Planner Essentials 4
The paper that I used is for a laser printer and therefore nice and firm. I’ve decorated it with acrylic paint and the Gelli plate, my latest addiction.
Blue had just been given a new collar here. Unfortunately he didn’t enjoy it for long, a week later he died suddenly.
And I’ve only ventured into the Selfies recently. I hate pictures of myself. Whose kids would have that anyway? hihi
For the closure I used eyelets, which was a bit fiddling with the Crop-a-dile but it worked.
This is what the bound book looks like before I glued it into the cover.
These are the dies I’ve worked with.
I thought it was a great project to work on and you can see that you can do a lot more with all those nice dies from the Sidekick Essentials line.
On the back of the book I attached flower lace.
For the Sentiment I used Sidekick Essentials 4.
I hope you are just as excited as I am about the new Sidekick Essentials dies. They are so versatile. And hopefully I’ve inspired you a little bit again.
See you next time!

Hello everyone! It’s Marjolijn here today. With a little luck, the world will open up a bit, at least in the Netherlands.
It has done a lot to me, the “intelligent Lock down” and I am glad we can breathe again.
Of course, that does not alter the fact that the virus is still roaming around and that caution is really necessary.
But let’s hope we can take that coat off gradually. That we get a little more freedom again and I sincerely hope that we can eventually return to what it was like.
Contrary to what is said and thought about it.
This page I made out of the beautiful paper Ilse and Charlene designed for ECD. Rusty Weathered from the Art journal collection.
Also I cut the cylinder lock on the small ticket from that paper, I incorporated an eyelet were the key ring hangs. The keys I made from black cardstock that has been treated with guilding wax.
The text stamped on the tab is from one of the stamp sets of the Art journal collection. Together we are strong and we really have to do this together.
I punched all the tickets, the borders and the flowers out of a scrap of yellow design paper, they did get a lick of distress ink.
Behind the small flowers is a golden flower, which I punched out of golden glitter paper, I think it works very nice with the glitter of ECD, but I don’t have the glitter yet. I think I must have that to 😉
There are 2 stamped flowers on top, they are stamped on vellum that I first gave a lick of watercolor paint on the back, I stamped with Stazon or I rubbed it off again.
On top of a piece of burlap, I also stamped on that, first I cut it with one of the label dies but did not get through the jute, However, I could see the shape well, so I cut it with my scissor.
I used drops on the small leaves of this twig, which is a delicious stuff, finally one that also makes really nice balls..
So a new phase, a new planner, the other one was almost filled so it was necessary.
I am very happy with the planners of E.C.D. not too much fuss and you can put a lot in it.
Hopefully I inspired you a bit to get started.

Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I cannot believe that my oldest son just celebrated his 27th birthday. Since we are all in quarantine, I only got a picture of him when he was taking a break from doing yardwork for me. This special-day moment is still perfect for my planner. So grown up, so handsome. I am very proud of him.
