Creating Cascading Photo Flaps in your Planner

August 1, 2021

Hello again everyone, Annette Green here today with some planner pages featuring some of the brand new dies and stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” video at the end of this post showing how I designed my pages and an idea for making room for more photos. My theme for this spread was all about a sculpture exhibit here in Greenville, SC.

Because the sculptures were so impressive, I wanted to showcase the photos as large as I could. The solution was to use the new Planner Essentials 42 “3 x 4 Cards” die set with some added hinge attachments. I share how I achieved this in the video in detail.

Numbering the photos using the new Planner Essentials “Stitched Alphabet” die set helped to identify each sculpture to correlate to the journaling of the details.

I’ve also used Planner Essentials 40 “Number Page” die set for the grid accent on this page, as well as the actual page on the right. Mixing the use of Reminiscence The Book 1 and Rainbow of Happiness paper pad, there were many great options for color coordination and texture.

I love how the new “All the Details” stamp set worked out nicely for labeling and journaling each sculpture. The numbers you see stamped in green are from “Pieces of Life 1 Numbers & More” stamp set which fit perfectly in the boxes.

I hope you take a moment to watch the video below to see more details on the cascading photo flaps. All products used will soon be available on the ECD website, but you can find them now at your favorite local scrapbook/hobby shop. Here’s a list of what I’ve used for reference:

Planner Essentials 37 – Stitched Alphabet dies

Planner Essentials 39 – Torn Page Weekly Frame die

Planner Essentials 40 – Number Page die

Planner Essentials 42 – 3 x 4 Cards die

Step Ten. Adhere a extra large, large, medium and small flower together. For the other two flowers, adhere a large, medium and small flower together. Adhere a centre to each flower. To finish the flowers, shape the flowers as desired.

Step Eleven. Adhere two leaves at the top left side of the ornament. Adhere two leaves in the bottom right side of the ornament. Adhere the remaining leaf to the middle left side of the ornament.

Step Twelve. Foam square the large flower to the middle left side of the ornament. Adhere the other two flowers as desired around the large flower.

Step Thirteen. To finish the wall hanging, punch two holes at the top of the wall hanging. Tie a piece of black twine through the two holes to create the hanger.
