Our Design Team has been busy playing with the new Planner Essentials Collection and we are in love!
There are so many ways to customize your own planner and we’ve got a lot to show you! Take a look at some planner projects from our talented Design Team below to get some ideas and inspiration.
Like many others in the crafting community, we have been *not-so-secretly* obsessed with all of the images of planners, bullet-journaling, etc. on social media. Each one is like a beautiful piece of art, reflecting its artist’s own style and needs.
We decided a while ago that we wanted in on this new crafty venture, but wanted to do it a little differently than what we had seen. When we started creating our first planner collection, we designed each piece carefully, to ensure that crafters could personalize it and really make it their own –– we made them flexible, customizable and ready for your creative touch!
With the help of our fabulous design team, we’ve compiled a list of 5 things to keep in mind when creating your first planner or bullet journal:

Happy Mother’s Day! And thanks for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer again on this blog. To honor all the moms, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters out there, I offer another idea for using dies with fabric. This one features new heart dies used to cut various sized hearts that can serve as appliqués or patterns (another quilter’s trick!). Simply fill them with fiberfill as ornaments with a pop of spring color, or include lavender or potpourri inside for a scented sachet. They’re great “thinking of you” gifts for all the special women in your life!

Hi it’s Joan Frantzen here as a Guest Designer. I recently discovered that wafer-thin dies work beautifully to cleanly cut single layers of fabric, eliminating the need to fussy cut the shapes. Before cutting, fuse iron-on adhesive to the back of the fabric and voila — instant appliqués! Machine stitching adds texture, and hand-stitched or glued embellishments bring your work to a whole new level. If you enjoy sewing, these little gems allow you to practice your free-motion stitching on achievable works of art that are quick and fun to make. Frame the piece with cardstock in coordinating colors, and include an easel for display. You’ll brighten someone’s day.
Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I will show you how to create a simple bookmark. I made one for my son. He now really enjoys reading and this makes me very happy.
Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer here with you today sharing a versatile card that can be used for any event – just use another sentiment.
I absolutely love this classic color combo that can be used for so many occasions.
Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I am sharing my card that I made using Elizabeth Craft Design.
I tried to make a versatile card, that will suit any occasion. You can just add any sentiment to it.
With the holiday season drawing near there are sure to be people on your shopping lists who have asked for a gift card. These often seem a bit impersonal, but if you make a gift card holder you can show the recipient just how much you care.
Here I have used the Katie Label Accordion for the place where the card is kept and below I explain how I did it.
Caz back again and I am continuing my Wednesday With Pop it Ups theme of Sweet Treats with this cute Snowman Soup gift idea.
Most people love Hot Chocolate and what a fun way to give this little gift. I have made Snowman Soups for friends for many years and it is now something of a tradition. So now, moving on to the project.
