Easter

April 15, 2021

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.

Hope you are a bit inspired by this page, 

With love,

Marjolijn.

January 3, 2021

Hello everyone, 

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.

It was super fun to work on this again,           

See you next time,

Marjolijn.

Quick and Easy December Day by Day Page Tips

December 3, 2020
Hello again, Annette Green here today with some helpful tips to make a December Day by Day album quickly and easily with some great new products from Elizabeth Craft Designs. My video below takes you through all the details.
As I describe in the video, Esther’s new paper collection is the key to making impressive and beautiful pages. These came together quickly and easily and make it look like so much more layered work than it actually was.

**Please note in the video that I incorrectly named the Sidekick Essentials die for the blank page. It should’ve been Sidekick Essentials 4 rather than 7. (Clearly, I have mixed up my die pieces!)**

Happy Greenville Residents Planner Pages

July 8, 2020
Hello again everyone, it’s Annette Green here today to share some recent pages in my Greenville planner. We’ve been living here in Greenville, South Carolina a few weeks now, and it’s been great fun documenting our journey. I’ll show you how I created these pages using the new Reminiscence cardstock collection (a true favorite of mine) along with some other “found” materials.
With just a few sheets from the Reminiscence collection, a brochure of Greenville, a few paper bags from one of our favorite little stops along the Swamp Rabbit Trail, my photos and of course the fabulous Planner Essentials and Sidekick Essentials dies, I created my pages quickly and easily.
I started with my base page using the Planner Essentials 2 die and the collaged green page from the Reminiscence cardstock. I folded the smaller paper bag to my desired size, then reinforced the back with a piece from the larger paper bag. I added different reinforcements to the holes of each, then die-cut the tabs shown on the right.
After attaching the tabs to both sides of the bag, I stitched around the perimeter with black thread in my sewing machine. This is a great way to add a bit of outline and interest to a page. If you don’t sew, you can always hand-draw some stitching. I fussy-cut the other pieces shown from the collection, stitching on some of them. Finally, I fussy-cut a sunflower and added it to my paper bag.
Next I started laying my photo frames and other elements around the pages to get an idea of placement and balance. The frames shown here are from the new Sidekick Essentials 1 & 8.
Once I’m happy with placement, I print my photos and start adhering elements down. At this point, I can see where I need something more – like another fussy-cut sunflower in the lower right corner, for example.
Sometimes there’s not a lot of room left for journaling…
A great solution for this is to journal right in your photo editing software like I’ve done here with my caption for this bike photo.
I needed to add one more page to hold this great brochure/map of Greenville (I loved the fun illustration on the cover, and the colors coordinate with my theme nicely) so I created a see-through pocket using the Planner Essentials 22 Pocket 4 die (top loading) and lined it with a piece of vellum. For some smaller photos, I die-cut three frames from Planner Essentials 4.
Pocket-style dies provide more room for additional photos, journaling and memorabilia.
My pages are complete and ready to add to my Greenville Planner!
Thanks for stopping by today to check out my latest Greenville planner pages. There’s more to come next month as I continue on my journey. Below is the list and links to the products I’ve used today, in addition to the Reminiscence cardstock collection.
