Good morning Crafters, today it is Luciana here, with a new planner spread. I love using the planning system to keep memories and picture and little pieces of my everyday life.
Step 1. create a background page. Use some watercolor as base, and the stamps from the set Pure Spring and the set Patterns 2. Create a texture on the page using the die from the set Planner Patterns and some stripes of washi tapes. Add the hole reinforcers from the set Planner Essentials – 7.
Step 2. Stamp on the White Soft Finish Cardstock the 3 labels from the set Retro Labels, then the sentiments “hello everyday life” from the set Retro Labels Sayings and “for the record” from the set Family. In the empty label I added the name of the baby.
Step 3. Add some embellishments.
Die cut from the White Soft Finish Cardstock:
2 set of Garden Notes – Frosty Fern
2 set of Garden Notes – Eucalyptus Frosty Fern
2 set of labels from the set Planner Essentials – 11
Thank you for stopping by.

Hi there! It’s Tanja here again, showing you how to create this simple Autumn tag duo step-by-step:
Step 1: Die Cutting
- cut out two tags from watercolor cardstock using the smaller of the tag dies from the Planner Essentials 2 die set
Step 2: Stamping
- stamp two leaf images from the Garden Flowers stamp set with Versamark and heat-emboss them with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder
Step 3: Adding Color and Texture
- add color with Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors
- splatter onto both tags with watered-down Distress Oxide Ink Gathered Twigs and Distress Stain Antiqued Bronze
- stamp on some texture using the script stamp from the Background Stamps 2 set and Distress Oxide Ink Gathered Twigs
- ink up the edges of both tags with that same Distress Oxide Ink and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
Step 4: Finishing Touches
- dye two pieces of torn seam binding with Distress Oxide Ink Gathered Twigs and Distress Stain Antiqued Bronze and run them through the holes of the tags together with two strands of golden thread
- add sentiments using stickers
Have fun creating these!

Hi friends! It’s EK, and today I am popping in to share a bold and bright ‘save the date’ invitation design.
So often I see an invitation or save the date cards and they are often created with pale or pastel tones and so serious. I thought it might be really fun to create a bold, bright, and fun ‘save the date’ card. And since I am using the ModaScrap Wedding Sentiments stamp set, creating this card will be so simple.
Step One: Trim a piece of 110lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×8.5 and score and fold to create a A2 card.
Step Two: Using the smallest circles from the Dashing Circles die set, die cut a series of circles out of bright colored Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Ladybug Red, Bright Orange, Sky Blue, Spring Green, and Perfect Purple Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Three: Create a frame for the card using two dies from the Dashing Rectangles die set. I used some Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock for my frame.
Step Four: Using the Wedding Sentiments stamp set, stamp images and a sentiment onto your die cut circles using some black ink.
Step Five: Adhere the black die cut frame to the card using some 3mm Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Six: Adhere the die cut circles onto the card frame, letting some of the circles dangle off the edge. Trim the bits hanging off the card so the circles become flush with the edge of the card.
Step Seven: Add some decorative drops to the card frame using a liquid drops. Did you see that ECD just add a brand new line of Craft Drops to their store? There are six new colors and I am so excited to play with these new craft drops!
I hope you got a kick seeing how I created this bold and bright save the date card. What I like about this design is I can change the stamp set and create a whole new card. Need a birthday card, this design will work. Need an anniversary card, this design could also work. And of course this fun, bright, bold design will be perfect for an anytime card!
