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!

Hello lovely people, my name is Devid and today I am sharing a project that I have made using the brand new Planner Essentials Planner Stencils. I am using set 2 today and use 5 different stencils to create a technique called: stencil layering technique. it creates a lot of depth. On the ECD planners and Journaling Facebook group there is a monthly challenge. this month it was: use your two favorite colors. 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:

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.

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!
Today I made this cute whale that I combined with the lovely papers from Modacrap. I love the paperpads. They are so cute and colorfull. And collerfull is what I love!
For this card I used a slimline die. This die is from the new Planner Essentials set 41 – Rounded Corners Page. At first take this part of the die and your basepaper. In this case I took the paper with the whales in blue and red. The frame is also from the same set. The frame I made only in the soft finish cardstock because the background is already so colorfull.
On the back of the frame you can make two squares in different colors. For these squares I used papers with a bit of a calmer print as I’m planning to add the whale on one squares and a text on the other.
Than I took some brown cardstock on the back of my base slimline. I added some jute twine between the background paper and my cardstock. I left the jute a bit longer than my background so it would stick out on both end. You can make the frame stick out on the right side as well for a playful effect.
And then comes my favorite part of the card! A cute die from the collection of Joset. This time I choose the whale. He is so cute and matches so pretty with the paper. The whale I collered with Distress Ink. I used weathered wood for his body, stormy sky for the water splashes and fired brick for the mouth of the whale. I adhered the whale to the left square.
On the right side I made the word whale with the letter dies blackboard alphabet. This is one of my favorite dies. You can combine it with so much dies on so many creations.
Finally I added some decoration. In the corner a steering wheel and lifebuoy. These are parts from the Whale and the Octopus sets. On the right side of the frame are two holes, here I added some jute twine. It mached with the colors of the card.
I had fun creating this card and hopefully I inspired you to make your own version!
This time I used the a Dutch magazine “Flow” in my planner. This “book for nature lovers” was perfect for that. I used a combination of dies from the Planner, Sidekick and Art-journal collection.
The Flow contains many paper extras that I have scattered here and there in this planner. What I’m going to use this planner for I don’t know yet but it was just fun to play with the dies and the paper. Sometimes I added some sentiments. Photos of the garden will probably be added later, because this paper lends itself perfectly for that.
I hadn’t used this die set in a long time and it is so much fun. Voilà, here he is again.
And I almost forgot about this die set. There are so many new and fun products on the market from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner collection, too many to list! Sometimes it is useful to browse through your collection and then you suddenly come up with ideas.
I used a different color for all 4 seasons where the paper also comes from a different designer. Furthermore I have always repeated the layout but always made a different special pages in it. The envelopes contain all ready-made cards that were included in the magazine. Handy if you want to send a card.
I had already shown this page made with the Phone Booth die set. I love it!!! It is a pity that all those beautiful telephone booths have disappeared from the streets, especially this English one ofcourse. Recently I saw on T.V. in a nostalgic English village such an old telephone booth has been transformed into a neighborhood library. So cute and the books were kept nice and dry. Really nice to give it a new function like this.
This was my post for today, maybe you also have an old or new magazine somewhere that you’ve always wanted to do something with. Or how about an old picture book? Then this is of course a super nice idea. I hope you’re inspired by this post. If you want to see more pictures from the pages that I created, make sure to visit my blog HERE.
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!
