Inspire Tag

March 24, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Inspire Tag.

To create my Inspire Tag, I’ve used a variety of the new dies from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as a couple of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tag & Toppers die out of Kraft Cardstock. Place the S033 stencil on the right hand side of the tag and put Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil with a palette knife. Once the texture paste has dried, distress the edges of the tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut the 2″ note piece from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die out of book page. Distress the edges of the note piece. Ink the edges of the note piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut a 1″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of White Soft Finish Cardstock and out of book page. Tear the top of the white fishtail so that it ends up being 4″ long. Tear the top of the book page fishtail so that it ends up being 3 3/4″ long. Distress the edges of the fishtails. Ink the edges of the fishtails using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Choose one of the reinforcements from the Reinforcement Variety Pack Die. Die cut the reinforcement out of black cardstock.

Step Five. Die cut 1760 die out of black cardstock. Cut the die cut piece in half.

Step Six. Die cut 1759 die out of black cardstock. Cut the circles to fit the tag as desired.

Step Seven. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the cotton image from the First Sights of Spring Stamp Set and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the cotton image in using Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks from Set 1 & 2 and a waterbrush. Once the image has dried, fussy cut it out. Ink the edges of the cotton using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Use the letters from the Morning Letters Stamp Set and Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp “inspire” on a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the word out. Ink the edges of the word using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. Cut a piece of burlap that measures 2″ x 3 1/4″. Cut a piece of cheesecloth as desired.

Step Ten. Adhere the reinforcement circle to the top of the tag on the circle. Adhere the white fishtail 1/4″ from the right and 1/2″ from the bottom of the tag. Adhere the book page fishtail 1 1/8″ from the left and 3/4″ from the bottom of the tag.

Step Eleven. Adhere the burlap piece 1 1/4″ from the bottom and to the right hand side of the tag. Adhere the mandella half to the 1″ from the top and to the right hand side of the tag.

Step Twelve. Foam square the note piece 1/2″ from the left and 1 1/4″ from the bottom of the tag. Adhere the cheesecloth as desired to the middle right side of the note piece. Adhere the circle piece overtop of the cheesecloth as desired.

Step Thirteen. Use foam squares to adhere the cotton image 5/8″ from the bottom and 3/8″ from the right of the tag. Adhere the inspire word to the bottom right side of the cotton image.

Step Fourteen. Tie a piece of twine through the hole at the top of the tag. Use a paint brush to splatter Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain on the tag as desired.

March Week 1 Planner Spread

March 5, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my March Week 1 Planner Spread.

To create my planner spread, I’ve used a variety of the new dies from the Planner Essentials Collection as well as one of the past stamp sets from the collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my planner spread at home.

Step One. You’ll need to choose a paper collection. Choose a piece of patterned paper from the collection and die cut two pages out of it using the page from the Planner Essentials 27 – Retro Number Trio. Ink the edges of both pages using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut the filmstrip die from the Planner Essentials 24 – Photo Frame Pages, four times out of black cardstock.

Step Three. From the Planner Essentials 21 – Note & Pieces die, you’ll need the arrow. Die cut the arrow once out of kraft cardstock. Die cut the arrow again out of a coordinating piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of the arrows using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Choose one of the banner styles from the Planner Essentials 27 – Retro Number Trio. Choose a couple of patterned papers that coordinate with your page. Die cut the medium banner out of one of the patterned paper. Die cut the small banner twice out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of all three banners using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. You’ll need the medium sized note piece and the curved stitched rectangle from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces Die. Die cut the note piece four times out of a piece of the patterned paper you’ve already used. Die cut the note piece out of kraft cardstock. Die cut the curved stitched rectangle twice out of kraft cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to each day of the week stamps from the Calendar stamp set and stamp each day onto one of the note pieces or rectangle. Use a black gel pen to write on them. Ink the edges of the note pieces and rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Choose one of the reinforcement strips from the Reinforcement Variety Pack. Die cut the reinforcement strip twice out of kraft cardstock. You’ll need a total of twelve reinforcements. Ink the edges of the reinforcements using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. From the patterned papers, choose twelve images to fussy cut out. Ink the edges of the images using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. We will start assembling the left hand page. Adhere six of the reinforcements over top of the holes on the page. Adhere one of the film strips 1″ from the right and 3/4″ from the bottom of the page. Adhere the other film strip 1″ from the left and 1/8″ from the top of the page.

Step Nine. Adhere one of the fussy cut images 1 1/8″ from the right and 2 1/2″ from the top of the page. To the Monday piece, adhere one of the fussy cut images to the left hand side of it. Foam square the Monday to Wednesday pieces as desired on the page.

Step Ten. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere three more images as desired.

Step Eleven. To finish your page, use adhesive and foam square to adhere two more fussy cut images and a small banner as desired on the page. Adhere the patterned paper arrow on the right hand side of the Tuesday note, making sure the arrow points down to Wednesday.

Step Twelve. Now we’ll assemble the right hand page. Adhere six of the reinforcements over top of the holes on the page. Adhere one of the film strips 1 1/4″ from the left and 1/2″ from the bottom of the page. Adhere the other film strip 7/8″ from the right and 1/4″ from the top of the page.

Step Thirteen. To the Sunday piece, adhere one of the fussy cut images to the left hand side of it. Foam square the Thursday to Sunday pieces as desired on the page.

Step Fourteen. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the remaining images to the page as desired. Foam square the two banners to the top left side of the page. Adhere the kraft arrow to the bottom right side of the Sunday note, making sure the arrow faces up.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my March Week 1 Planner Spread.

Create The Things Tag

January 27, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Create the Things Tag.

I’m loving all the different ideas and projects that I’ve been coming up with using Charlene’s beautiful stamp sets. For today’s project, I’ve create this tag, which uses a variety of Charlene’s stamps and a couple of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 26 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Choose one of the reinforcement circles from the Reinforcement Variety Pack and die cut it out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the reinforcement circle over top of the circle on the tag. Sprinkle Turquoise, Rosebud and Spring Green Magenta Nuance over the tag. Spritz the tag with water. Dry the tag. Apply Emboss It Ink to the block stamp from the Journaling Elements and stamp on the tag as desired. Reapply ink as needed to the stamp, stamp a total of four times. Sprinkle White Wonder Embossing Powder over the stamped areas. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose two of the flowers from the A Field of Flowers stamp set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to each stamp and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the flowers using Scribble Sticks 1 & 2 and a waterbrush. Once the flowers have dried, fussy cut them out. Ink the edges of the flowers using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the Journaling Elements stamp set, you’ll need the heart stamp. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the stamp and stamp onto the watercolour cardstock. Reapply ink to the stamp and stamp two more times on the same cardstock piece. Colour the hearts using Scribble Sticks 1 & 2 and a waterbrush. Once the hearts have dried, fussy cut eight out. Ink the edges of the hearts using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the “Create the Things” sentiment from the Make a Wish stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut each word strip into a strip for a total of five strips. Ink the edges of the strips using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere the reinforcement circle overtop of the circle on the tag. Adhere the eight hearts as desired on your tag.

Step Six. Use foam square to adhere the two flowers to the bottom left side of the tag as desired.

Step Seven. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the sentiment to the right side of the tag. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the hole at the top of the tag.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Create the Things Tag.
