Have you found it difficult to print the right size of photos for the photo frames from the Planner Essentials 4 set?
Design Team member, Esther Glas, recently shared a fantastic tip on her blog for all of our planner-makers: the “Pic Collage” app –– found on the App Store –– allows you to create the right size pictures to sit within the Planner Essentials 4 Photoframes!
There may be other apps that can do this for you as well, but Esther found this and couldn’t wait to share the tip!
Using the Pic Collage app, here’s how to create the picture size:
Open the Pic Collage App en select the option: ‘Grids”, you can now select 6 images from your photo files/folders. Click the V in the top right corner.
2. The App will now load your pictures. After this Select Size> 2:3 and the Grid with the 6 equal squares so it will look like the image you see here.
3. Now move the small round button completely to the right and you will see the whitespace between the images will be larger. This will be the right size for the Planner Essentials.
4. At this point, you’re still able to make some changes and move the pictures a bit if needed. When this is completed, just save the picture you just created on your camera roll and it’s ready for printing on 4″x 6″ paper with your Selphy printer!
This is the perfect time to create some new pages in your planner and today, we’ve put together some planner inspiration from our Design Team!
Femke Kokke shared this fun mixed-media layout she made this last week for the new year. Adding inspirational quotes to your planner is a great way to start out the year, and the addition of her fold-over page is perfect for any style of planner!
Katelyn Grosart: With it being the start of January it’s time for me to start planning the month. I’m loving the new Planner Essentials line, as its perfect for me to customize my planner pages. For planner project, I’ve created a weekly planner spread that will keep me on track of what I need to complete and allows me to add in things where needed.
Now that the holidays are over, Charlene Van Der Vorst shows us how it’s the perfect time to take some of your favorite moments and start making your holiday planner pages!
Karen Ostergard: I is am using my planner to help keep me on track to send out cards. This lay-out is for Valentine’s Day. The tags will be to keep track of the cards I’ve sent and to whom!
Wanda Hentges: I chose the words “be brave” and then created a chain that is broke at the bottom. It can be hard to break away from bad habits or other things in our lives that are not good. It takes courage and perseverance. We need to be brave everyday and since it’s always today – Be Brave Today!!!
Our very own, Els van de Burgt has one planner just for her pens! The Color Chart stamp set is perfect for organizing your pens, inks, etc. into a color-reference book!
Just before the new year, we all sat around the craft table and started our very first planners –– it was so exciting! Even though we had an idea of how we wanted to create each page, we couldn’t help but think: ‘what would Els do?’
The truth is, we’re just as inspired with Els’ projects as our community is! She surprises us everyday with unique and thoughtful designs. Here are a few pages from her 2019 planner to help get you going this year.

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:
