Karen here. Lately, I’ve been inspired creating cards to use similar colors and pieces to also scrapbook. For today’s post, I started with the adorable Bunny and made a card. Then, I just had to create a Sidekick scrapbook page.
I started by finding a card sketch on Pinterest to create this fun card with the Bunny. The Bunny is colored with Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Kitsch Flamingo. The bow is colored with Scattered Straw. The eyes and whiskers are colored with Copic C7, and the pink nose is a Copic R81. The triangles were made by using a Fitted Square die and cutting it in half and I added a couple Stitched Rounded Rectangles to the front. I added a couple Leaves and Branches die cuts at the top. With some ribbon, twine and pearls, I called this all occasion (but I’ll probably use it for Easter) card complete.
I then brought in the paper and the triangles to create this Sidekick page journaling fun times at Sacramento Rivercats games with my guy. The page base is cut from 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with a Sidekick Essentials 2 die. He has a cap on that is from the Hats dies. The letters are in the Planner Essentials 23 set, and I added the “cute” stamp from the Moods set (because I think my guy is awfully cute!) No page, in my opinion, is complete without reinforcements, cut here using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive and the Reinforcement Variety Packs 1 and 2.
On the back, the focus is on these pictures that include my parents and my guys daughter since we really enjoy going to the game with family and friends. I used the triangle (again cut from a Fitted Square) as a pocket and added journaling that I cut with a Fitted Rounded Square die. The …’s are also from the Moods stamps, and I added some Branches and Leaves diecuts to the triangle pocket.
Due to circumstances I have not worked much in my Sidekick planner lately.
But he is so cute that little one! And…..there are beautiful new Sidekick planners available in very nice colors and prints!
So, hop on with it!
On the left I used the new stamp set, actually this one is from the Planner Essentials collection. I cut off day 6 and 7 and made it a planner for the weekdays only. On the right I have room for the weekend days.
I still have to fill in the page. For this planner I don’t use photos, it’s purely an overview of the things I do.
I stamped on regular printer paper and edited it a bit with Distress ink so it blends in a bit more with the background.
That cute girl is from one of Esther’s new stamp sets, so sweet. I just stamped on kraft paper and cut it out. The bee is also from that set.
On the right I made a pocket and put a card in it. I can write the weekend things on it or stick a very small photo.
Again such a sweet girl, from another new set of Esther.
The pages further dressed up with what, yes, what do you call that?
It is a new die from a set for the Planner Essentials. I tore off pieces there and incorporated them both on the left and right of the page.
The page on the right is embossed paper, I created that with a 3D embossing die from Ellison/sizzix.

I’m very happy with this page and hopefully you’re a bit inspired
Hello, it’s Annette Green here today with two spreads in my Nature Planner and a video walk-through of my process. Springtime in Greenville, SC is especially beautiful and since we are still new to the area, I’ve been in awe of this natural beauty and taking lots of photos.
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.
Here I am again, in a new year with new opportunities. First of all, I want to wish everyone a fantastic 2021 because we all deserved it! Let’s look out for each other and the world a little bit more and be nice to each other.
And now my pages for the first week of this new year.
This is a double page for in my sidekick planner. This year I want to use it as kind of agenda/planner. I can then incorporate the special memories into my large planner. For these pages I used paper from Reminiscence The Book.
Meanwhile there are already a lot of nice die sets of which I have used several. At the bottom of this post I will post a list of the products used. But first….. Coffee!!! 😉
I already placed all my appointments for this week in my planner. Enough time to play with my planner and stuff this week ?
I used the super fun road sign here for the days of the week.
The sidekick planner is perhaps my favorite. Wonderfully handy and you can still incorporate a lot into it.
