How To Create Cards With Planner Essentials Stamps

June 19, 2019

Hello everyone! It’s Sanna Lippert here today again, sharing my June Guest Design Team project(s) with you.

I don’t do planners that much, but I still really like the Planner Essentials clear stamp sets that Esther Glas designed. So when I first saw them, I knew I wanted to use them for another purpose: cardmaking! They, by the way, would also work great on art journals, ATCs and tags even.

Here is what I did:
Step 1:
Take a sheet of white Soft Finish Cardstock and the Patterns 1 Planner Essentials stamp set and stamp a grid with an embossing ink onto the paper. Then pour white embossing powder over the stamped area, dabb any residue off and heat set with a heat tool.
Step 2: Repeat the previous step and now use one of the flower images in the same stamp set.

Step 3: Color the grid piece with a green Distress Ink and an ink blending tool and then color the flowers using a water tank brush and pink, orange and yellow Distress Ink tones. After you are done coloring the flowers, apply blue Distress Ink onto the working surface and color the background around the flowers blue.
Step 4: Cut the pieces into a right size with a paper trimmer.
Step 5: Fussy cut the flower piece along the right side edge with scissors.
Step 6: Adhere both pieces onto a white appr. 6×6 inch sized white card base with Kids Choice glue.

Step 7: Add a ribbon to the card and ink a strip of white cardstock with a green Distress Ink, then stamp a sentiment with black ink onto the strip using the Remember Planner Essentials stamp set.
Step 8: Fussy cut the banner OR use the Stiched Fishtail Banner die to die cut it and adhere the banner in place. Recorate with roses and liquid drops.

For my second card I used the same stamp sets with these steps:
Step 1:
Use the residue ink from the blue background card on your working surface and dabb a piece of white cardstock into it until you have grabbed all color from the surface.
Step 2: Take the Patterns 1 Planner Essentials stamp set – the number stamp – and start stamping the image repeatedly onto the background with the same Distress Ink tone.

Step 3: Use an ink blending tool and apply the same Distress Ink tone onto a strip of white cardstock. Now use the Remember stamp set to stamp a sentiment with black stamp ink onto the strip.
Step 4: Adhere the pieces together and cut any residue parts off with scissors. Then adhere this piece onto a appr. 6×6 inch sized white card base.

Step 5: Take the border stamp from the same stamp set and using black stamp ink stamp the image repeatedly on both sides of the free white area on the card.
Step 6: Decorate with puffy stickers or buttons and add a few liquid drops for additional decor.

Of course I also recorded a video for you to watch, so you get a better idea on how I did each and every step!

I hope you like my card ideas and get inspired to try something similar out yourself!! See you all in August with another tutorial post.

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Weekly Planner Spread

May 22, 2019

Hello crafters! It is Luciana here, with a weekly planner spread that could be a sort of inspiration for those wishing to combine the planning system with that of journaling.

Here all the steps to recreate this weekly page:

Create the background on a paper using the distress ink pad broken china and shabby shutters.
Use the stamp with the letters from the set Planner Essential – Patterns 2 and the one with the flowers from the set Planner Essential – Patterns 1.
Create some layers of scrap paper using the following stamps:

  • the montly view from the set Planner Essential – Calendar
  • the box for records from the set Planner Essential – Months
  • the receipt stamp from the set Planner Essential – Important memo

Cut out the dies related to music and the circles pattern from the set Planner Essential 10.

Glue all the pieces on the page, like the picture below.

Cut the page in half, and use the left side for planning, adding the days of the week with the stamps from the set Planner Essential – Schedule.
Die cut 2 sets of box with the tab, from the set of dies Planner Filmstrip. Adhere inside of them two pictures of the important events of the week.

Adhere the first picture on the page, using a strip of tape. Then glue on it the second picture, in order to have a browsable insert.

Complete the page with a floral element, die cut 5 sets of the 2 flowers from the Die set – Large Flower Set.

Happy planning!

Father’s Day Gift Idea

May 18, 2019

Hello, it’s Sandy here today!

We all know how difficult it can be to come up with a gift or card for the men in our lives, so I’m here to share an idea using my dies and stamps from the Planner Essentials. I love my ECD Planner but wanted to show you another way to use the great elements from this collection.

This fun photo holder can act as a card by folding it up to mail, or as a photo frame to display all of Dad’s favorite photos. It is perfect for his desk because it’s double-sided. I’ve added some small tags to each section so a personal message or information could be added.

This is a fun project –– so let’s get started making it.

I knew that I wanted 5 panels so the first thing to do is cut 10 large tags, 10 small tags and 10 Photo Frames. I have linked all the products below so you can easily find the sets I used. Also needed is 10 black strips of black cardstock to go on the frames behind the word “photo”. 1″ is the perfect height.

The Manly Man Paper Collection from ModaScrap was used for this project.

Assembly of the tags is pretty fast and easy. The black strip was added to the back and then the larger tag was added directly above that. The sizing on these are perfect.

With that completed, the small tags were stamped and decorated using the dies and stamps in the collection. For the final touch I edged all the tags with some brown ink. I then set everything aside to work on the stand.

To make the stand, two sheets of 120# black cardstock were used. The tags are about 3″ wide so the panels measure 3.25″ X 5.5″. I simply scored and folded the cardstock every 3.25″ and left a connecting tab on one end of the first section. When the two panels were connected a tag was positioned on the panel and a pencil line was added where a cut line should be. A few quick snips with the scissors and its ready to go.

Double-sided foam tape was added to each panel so it would stand out from the base. After adding the small tags with a black brad, I laid the panels out for placement.

A couple little trinkets were added from the Tim Holtz collection: the key, the stars and the charm (where 2019 was added).

All that is left now is to add my personal messages, information and photos. I’ll use the same photo frame from the die set to cut the photos so they will fit perfectly.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope this has sparked a few ideas.

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting,

11 Gifts For Mom On Mother’s Day!

May 12, 2019

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mother’s out there!

Today gives us such a wonderful opportunity to honor the women in our lives who raised us, praised us and made us who we are. They certainly have been a huge and important part of our lives!

Along with our Design Team, we put together 11 projects for mom on Mother’s Day –– enjoy!

Kathy Sabarese

To honor my mother, this background with the windmill pays tribute to her PA ‘Dutch’ heritage, and she loved tulips! I’ve put the tulips in Susan’s Garden Watering Can, which has a Mandala geometric pattern of ‘dots’ which are done by Tibetan Buddhists called ‘Dkyil-khor.’ This literally means ‘ that which encircles a centre.’ My dear friend, fellow stamper and tole painter, Barb Pelak, was kind enough to do a pattern on the Watering Can for me! I colored my tulips to match her colors in the pattern.
Happy Mother’s Day mom.  Miss you lots!
