Hi planner fans, Marjolijn here. This is my first post for the Elizabeth Craft Design blog!
First I want to say that I’m so proud to be a member of the design team!!! It even gives me more fun to play with the beautiful dies and stamps for the planner.
Today, I’ve decided to make a special page in my planner for a very special occasion: my daughters birthday! I took a lot of pictures that I wanted to use in my planner to remember her 17th birthday.
Here is everything I created for my pocket page!
Look at this, a whole day in one page with cute tags, labels and a large double tag where I placed all the pictures and journaling. And look at that gorgeous birthday cake, my oldest daughter made it as a special surprise for her sisters birthday!
For this page I used the new die sets from the Planner Essentials 22. On the back, I glued the page from Planner Essentials 4.
The page folds together just like the pockets in the collection, folding and adhering the flaps onto your base page, making it look like an envelope. I used the reinforcements from Planner Essentials 7 to secure the other side of the page.
I made two pages from craft paper (size 3 3/8” x 8”) and bound them together with the die from set 22 (see picture below) –– now it’s a double tag!
So now, I have a lot of space for pictures and journaling!
I finished it off by decorating it with stamps and dies. For that I used Planner Essentials 27, the retro numbers trio. Oh, how I love that –– 3 sizes in one set!!
I also used the Planner Essentials Planner Patterns and Planner Months die sets. The stamps are from Pieces of Life 1 (CS160).
As an additional insert, I made a tag with a see trough pocket made from vellum. And a little tag inside it. All made with the Planner Essentials set 26 and stamps from the set CS134.
I love the little banners They are so decorative and fun for birthdays and party’s. Even if they are too big, I role them up and put them in the pocket. Always fun to find them, and you immediately know it’s a special occasion when you do.
I made the banner with the Planner Essentials 26 Retro Numbers Trio set. There are 3 different flags in it in 3 sizes so you can make a lot of different banners for in your planner or other projects! Sometimes I make them and send them with a birthday card! Success assured!
I hope you all get inspired a little bit with this page. It’s so much fun playing with this new dies!!!
See you next time,
