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.
It’s going so fast this year, the days, weeks are flying by. Unfortunately no family Easter brunch this year, last year also not, I do miss it. Luckily it is also very cozy together with the children and we had a very nice Easter party.
It has become a double page again, which I like best for an overview.
Here the flaps are closed, I love these pages!
For the right page I used the Sidekick Essentials 10, around which I folded the wave pocket page, also from the sidekick collection. The large pocket is on the back, which I can use for a next overview. The sentiment “Happy Easter” I made with the alphabet from the Art collection. And Oliver (Tim Holtz) finishes this page. In the pocket there are 2 tags with photos and journaling.
The left page is made with the Sidekick Essentials 11 set. Behind the photo are some bunnies (Tim Holtz) and also one on the photo. I adhered the picture on the page before I put the reinforcements on it. That’s all this page needed.
I made the tags with the tag die from Planner Essentials 11. I like them oh so much! And that sweet bunny is an older Elizabeth Craft Designs die. Unfortunately no longer available but still so nice!! Especially………
That bun of the bunny…look how cute :-). This is the back of the tags with even more photos and journaling.
Both Oliver and the bunny are colored with watercolor paint.
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!

Hi crafters! Lisanne here. So today is my very first blogpost for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and I’m so excited to share my projects with all of you! Today I want to share this planner page in my Ground Espresso Sidekick planner. For this page I used a lot of different ECD dies. They are so great to use together! I will explain a little bit more below how I created this page.
For the base I used the Sidekick Essentials 2 and I used the Reminscene paperpad COO2. This paper is so lovely with these stamps at the background.
The tag with the flower girl is from the Planner Essentials 30 Wave Pocket and the paper I used is from the Reminiscene book. For the bushes I used Adventure Edges 2. The cute little flowers which I cut from the Reminiscene Book are part of the Adventure Edges 2 as well. Now you can see that the Holiday Elf Her is turned into a flower girl! I realy like this way of using dies. At the back of the tag I put some pieces from the Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces.
When I adhered the tag on the page I put them behind a little piece from the Note Pieces. You can also see that piece with the text Oh happy day! This stamp is from the Pieces of Life 4. I also used the cute Flower reinforcers.
Thank you so much for reading this blogpost and I hope that I inspired you a little bit today to works with these fun dies!
Have a happy day!

Here I am again, in a new year with new opportunities. First of all, I want to wish everyone a fantastic 2021 because we all deserved it! Let’s look out for each other and the world a little bit more and be nice to each other.
And now my pages for the first week of this new year.
This is a double page for in my sidekick planner. This year I want to use it as kind of agenda/planner. I can then incorporate the special memories into my large planner. For these pages I used paper from Reminiscence The Book.
Meanwhile there are already a lot of nice die sets of which I have used several. At the bottom of this post I will post a list of the products used. But first….. Coffee!!! 😉
I already placed all my appointments for this week in my planner. Enough time to play with my planner and stuff this week 😉
I used the super fun road sign here for the days of the week.
The sidekick planner is perhaps my favorite. Wonderfully handy and you can still incorporate a lot into it.
It’s Karen here today. I’m having such fun with the #DecemberDBD posts. Today’s features the Planner Essentials 32 and 33 – the Viewmaster. One of my favorite things each year is to decorate my tree because I love seeing all of my ornaments each year, so for this page, I used the viewmaster die to create a page highlighting a few.
To create this page, by cutting the patterned paper with the page base in Planner Essentials 4. Then cut the viewmaster from Planner Essentials 32 from the brown paper with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back (to make adhering it easier!).
Print 7 small pictures of ornaments. (I use a Selphy) and cut them with the frame dies in the Planner Essentials 32 set. Also cut out gold frames for each of the windows. (These are also cut with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive)
Adhere it all together. Add the “Simply the Best” sentiment from Planner Essentials 33.
And a date from Planner Essentials 17…..and of course some cute reinforcements. (Stars come from Planner Essentials 14, Gears from Reinforcement Variety Pack 1, Doilies from Reinforcement Variety Pack 2)
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!
