Karen here today. I love that we are starting to be able to travel again. My guy and I made a whirlwind trip to Cabo in Mexico, and it was glorious! I created a full-size planner page for my “Places I’ve Been” journal, and I created a similar Sidekick sized page for my journal about adventures my guy and I are having. So fun!
I used an older Reminiscence pack for the paper and started my regular sized Planner page by cutting a Planner Essentials 4 page base. On the “front”, I added some bubbles from the Water Creatures Stamps using some light silver embossing. I love the additional texture. Then, I also cut the Planner Essentials 24 frame. Els did a GREAT video about using this particular page that you can find – here. I added the sentiments from the Family Stamps and some lettering from the Planner Essentials 23 set to both the front and the back. (This fabulous set has three sizes of letters!) On the back of my page, I used the Fitted Circles to cut out the pictures of the gas station and the circle behind my picture. The sand dollar stamp is also from the Water Creatures Stamps and is stamped in Distress Oxide and fussy cut. Last, but never least, I added some reinforcements that came from a combination of the Reinforcement Variety Packs 1 and 2. As usual, I backed the paper with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make the letters and reinforcements stickers!
For the Sidekick sized pages, I started with a Sidekick Essentials 6 base. I cut a half Fitted Circle for the top (that I ran through a second time with the base from Sidekick Essentials 6 to get the top shape right!) and added some leaves from the Leaves and Branches dies. The rest of the products I mentioned are also listed above.
Karen here today. I’ve started a NEW Sidekick Planner to journal a somewhat new relationship. Today’s post is about my guy’s sweet dog. (Yes, I’m dog-obsessed!) Sadie is an almost 80 lb pittie mix, black with some white paws and other markings. I used / modified the Dog die to add a fun embellishment for Sadie’s page.
I used the Sidekick Essentials 1 for a base, and I used the gorgeous Rainbow of Happiness Paper. To that, I added a strip of black denim ribbon. Then I used a couple sizes of the Fitted Circles Dies. On the top die, I used that FuN sentiment from the Pieces of Life 4 – Retro Stamps. On the bottom circle, I put an ADORABLE picture of Sadie. On the top of her picture, I added a heartbeat die from Sidekick Essentials 1. So sweet. The letters are from Planner Essentials 23. And, of course, I had to add some reinforcements. These little circles are from the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1.
How fun is the back of this page!? I kept the back pretty simple with a strip of several pictures of the adorable Sadie and a wee bit of journaling. I also added the little hearts from the Sidekick Essentials 2 set.
For the Dog die, I wanted to create a black dog with some white marks and white paws. (The white is 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock!) I cut 8 of the “legs” – 4 in black and 4 in white. I fussy cut just the tips of the white ones to make white paws. I also used one of the white spots to create a white chest for the adorable dog. And some google eyes! 🙂
Hii All! It’s me again, Lisanne! This time I want to share a card who has to cheer up my dad. It is a small project, but small isn’t always bad!
A while ago I made a planner page with the Sidekick Essentials 13 (hexagon insert). All the little hexagons that fell out I safed in a box for using it later. This was the time to using is haha. So I glued some hexagons on my base, which is dies 1698. There are a lot of different sizes squares in it.
The whole background is paper from the Reminiscene Book 2. You can see I made three spots with hexagons in different sizes. These hexagons made me think about some honeycomb. So I made the Honey Bear (1727) with ofcourse honey.
Let’s take a closer look to the Honey Bear. I used the Soft Finish Cardstock so I can colour the bear with Distress Ink. You can choose to give the bear a bow or not. The bow is an accessories which I add later because at the end I missed some extra colour. This bow gives that colour I think. I made some highlights with some pens.
After the bear I want to make a beehive. So I dies the honey jar and turn this upside down. I put a little cord behind the hive and knotted this at the branch. This branch is a part of the tree from the Safari Colleciton.I really love this look! Ofcourse there are some bees at the hive.
At least I made a banner with the build your own sentiments stamp (cs139) and put this whole card at a brown card.
I hope I gave you some inspiration with this card. Thanks for taking a look at this post! And hopefully I see you soon!
Wouldn’t you like that, too? A little magic, or help in the household? Well, I do. But with a good schedule it also saves a lot of time and energy. This time I adapted to what I can do and distributed the work throughout the day and the week. This way I also have energy left over for my hobby.
I love Esther’s beautiful paper so I went to work with the Reminiscence the book 2.
I made the basics with Planner Essentials 4. The edges got a lick of distress ink but I didn’t do anything about it. With Sidekick Essentials 8, I made a pocket that could hold a mini-book. I adhered it at the edges so there’s another ticket behind it. On the left corner I used another stamp from the CS134 Retro labels set. Below that, I made a trifold page with the Puzzle page from the new Art Journal collection. I only adhered it to the edges. He’s dressed with a “note for myself.” But first coffee! For that I used the dies from the Sidekick Essentials 4. Next to it I used a stamp from the fountain pen CS216 art journal chick that refers like an arrow to the coffee cup. I colored the pen using the watercolor palette.
In the pocket I made a mini-booklet with a page for every day. The days of the week I made with the Sidekick Essentials 3 set and for the tags I used Planner Essentials 26. For the narrow one I cut of a little trip on both sides. On the small tag I adhered Mary Poppins and on the big tag Bert. These ones are from a set called “the park” by Tim Holtz.
Mary Poppins stands for magic for me and Bert for a little help if necessary. I wrote the text with a stencil….no, my handwriting is really not that beautiful!!! The minibook received a stamp from the CS130 Bullet Journaling 3 set on each page.
The page is finished with reinforcements from Planner Essentials set 22. For the strip of arrows I used Planner essentials 14.
Now I have to fill everything in but I’m sure you’re not interested in my household schedule hihi. Otherwise…… I’d love to hear it. Honestly, this fröbelen was much more fun than that household but secretly I enjoy it enormously when my house is nice and clean. Maybe I should look for a little “Magic” or a help in the household?
Hope you find a little bit of magic for your household and a little inspiration by my page.
Hello Friends and welcome! It is Karan here to share a project I designed using the new Sidekick Release. For those who know how much I love albums, I also love to create mini albums too.
This one is designed using the Seed Packet Die from Sidekick Essentials 16.
To begin with I cut the seed pack out five times using paper from 49 and Market. I cut vellum to go on the inside of the packet for the window. I cut out extras thinking I might make the album larger but ended up going with 5 packets instead of 8.
Then I assembled them.
I then cut the side panel from the same sidekick set and created the pages and continued to decorate them. I love tags and cut out a tag for each page just as an added layer and photo mat for some of my photos. This tag was cut from Planner Essentials 2, which I also cut to go inside each opening of the Seed Packet page. I am going to share images from this little mini and then add the dies I used below. Hope you enjoy this mini project.
And then details for the cover:
I cut doubles for the large floral and the medium size floral for the cover, two sets of leaves and then I used the skeleton leaf from the Sidekick Essential 16 set. Ii love how the florals shape so beautifully.
I hope that I inspired you to create a mini album using this Seed Pocket Set. It makes a perfect little mini album.
Hello everyone, Annette Green here today with my final pages in my Greenville Planner which I’ve been sharing throughout 2020. I ended this planner/journal with some Fall pages, at which time my planner was filled to the brim. I decided it was a good place to stop, especially since I started a new planner in December for my Day-by-Day memories. (You can check that December DBD video out HERE if you like.)
