Karen here. Many of you have seen some of my scrapbook pages for my boyfriend’s dog, Sadie. Using the Planner Essentials for scrapbooking is so much fun! Today’s page also features part of Joset’s new Warm & Cozy Release (that is available now in your local and many online stores).
To start this page, I put together the FuN and NeW Santa Claus. I cut the pieces using a combination of patterned cardstock, 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, and black cardstock. For the eyes/eyebrows/etc piece, I first applied 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make these pieces easier to apply. I added color to the beard (distress ink in Hickory Smoke), face (Copic E00, R20), glasses (Copic C5), eyes (Copic C7), nose (Copic E11), and list (Antique Linen). I love putting together these dies. It reminds me of the fun of playing with paper dolls as a child 🙂
The page base is from Planner Essentials 13. The cardstock is from the Christmas Lives Here set. On the front I added a tag under Santa that is also from the Christmas Lives Here set. I wanted to make it a different shape, so I cut the top with a large Fitted Circle Die and cut the bottom with a corner rounder punch. I edged this piece with distress ink in Walnut Stain. I added the “Santa” letters die cut from Planner Essentials 23. I ended up printing LoVeS and Sadie on my printer and re-cut the list.
On the inside, I added another tag from Christmas Lives here, a reindeer from the NeW Holiday Stocking and the holly from the NeW Cozy Fireplace.
And finally, on the back, I added a tree that I cut from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock backed with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. (Unfortunately, the tree is from an older set and is no longer available – it was there when I started the page!) And of course, no page is complete without some fun reinforcements!!
