Creating Pages For Your Monthly Calendar And Important Dates

March 19, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my March Calendar and Important Dates Tag.

Have you seen the new release from Esther Glass for the Planner Essentials Line? Well, both pages feature some of the new products that are now available from the new release! On top of using the new Planner Essentials release from Esther Glass, I’ve used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs as well as patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

To start, I will share with you how to recreate my March Calendar Page.

Step 1. Die cut the Planner Page from the Planner Essentials 3 set out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance Powder over 1/4 of the way from the top of the page. Spritz with water. Once the page has dried, apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Monthly stamp from the Bullet Journaling 3 stamp set and stamp onto the tab of the page. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the ‘XXX’ stamp and stamp in the bottom left and top right corner of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 3. From the Blackboard Alphabet Die, die cut the word March out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 4. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the page. Adhere the March word to where the magenta nuance is. Place the Sun. to Sat. stamps, from the Schedule stamp set, onto a stamp block. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the days of the week and stamp underneath the March word.

Step 5. To finish the page, add the corresponding numbers underneath the days on the calendar as well as add black markings around the March word.

With your March Calendar Page done, I will share with you how to recreate my Important Dates Tag.

Step 1. Start by die cutting the tag from the Planner Essentials 7 die out of kraft cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the letter stamp, from the Patterns 2 stamp set, stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and then stamp onto to your tag randomly. Repeat the previous step six more times to your tag. Distress the edges of the tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the reinforcements circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. From the Planner Patterns, die cut the square pattern twice out of black cardstock. Cut the two pieces up into four pieces.

Step 4. From the Stitched Fishtail Banners, die cut the 3/8″ banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the notched side of the die, 2 7/8″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Die cut the 3/4″ banner out of a scrap piece of patterned paper from the Butterfly Dream Paper Pack. Place the notched side of the die, 3 1/2″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Important stamp, from the Bullet Journaling 2 stamp set and stamp onto the white banner. Ink the edges of the important and patterned paper banner using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From the Retro Labels stamp set, you’ll need nine of the labels. Next, you’ll need a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink to four of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the labels. Write on each label as desired. Ink the edges of all the labels using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the tag page.

Step 7. Adhere the square patterned pieces as desired on the tag.

Step 8. Adhere the Important banner to the patterned paper banner. Foam square the patterned paper banner to the top portion of the tag.

Step 9. To finish the tag, adhere the labels as desired.

Step 5. Adhere the monkey together. Add the mouth in by drawing it in with a black pen.

Step 6. Adhere the banana underneath the monkey’s right hand. Adhere the ballon together and then adhere it to the left hand. Adhere the party hat together and adhere it on an angle on the monkey’s head.

Step 7. Foam square the birthday sentiment 1/2″ from the bottom of the tag. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the monkey to the left of the birthday sentiment.

Step 8. To finish off the gift tag, tie some twine through the top of the hole on the tag.

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you this week’s planner spread for my planner. Creating planner spreads has never been easier using the Planner Essentials Collection. By using a variety of the dies and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection, as well as patterned paper from ModaScrap, it allowed me to customize my planner and create my this planner spread. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. From the Planner Essentials – 2 die, die cut four small tags out of kraft cardstock. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the day of the week stamp from the Calendar stamp set and stamp Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday on each of the tags. Ink the edges of the tags using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Write in a date and details about each day using a black pen.

Step 2. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the rectangle box stamp from the Schedule stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Repeat the previous step a second time and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut out the two rectangle boxes. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the day of the week stamp from the Calendar stamp set and stamp Tuesday, Friday and Saturday on each of the boxes. Ink the edges of the rectangle boxes using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Write in a date and details about each day using a black pen.

Step 3. From the Planner Patterns, die cut the geometric pattern twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the two pieces in half, giving you four pattern pieces.

Step 4. From the Planner Essentials – 3 die, die cut the large banner out of kraft cardstock. From the same die set, die cut the “This Week” banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of each banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the flower stamp from the Patterns 1 stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Repeat the previous step again and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply the Potting Soil Archival Ink to the flower stamp and stamp onto a piece of kraft cardstock. Repeat the previous step again and stamp onto the same piece of kraft cardstock. On the white soft cardstock, sprinkle Spring Green Magenta Nuance powder overtop of the flowers. On the kraft cardstock, sprinkle Aquamarine Magenta Nuance Powder overtop of the flowers. Spritz both pieces of paper with water. Dry with a heat tool. Fussy cut the four flower bunches out.

Step 6. Choose a piece of patterned paper from ModaScrap’s Wood Effect Paper Pack. From the Planner Essentials – 2 die, die cut the planner page out of the patterned paper piece. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the January date and stamp onto the tab. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the stitched stamp and stamp at the bottom right and top left of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 7. Using the same patterned paper piece from step 6, die cut the planner page from the Planner Essentials – 3 die out of the patterned paper piece. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the February date and stamp onto the tab. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the stitched stamp and stamp at the bottom left and top right of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 8. Adhere two of the geometric pattern pieces to the January page. Adhere a white flower bunch to the right of the January tab. Adhere the “This Week” banner to the kraft cardstock banner. Foam square the banners to the top right side of the page. Adhere Monday, Tuesday and Thursday tags and box to the page as desired. Note: I sometimes mix up my days of the week on my pages.

Step 9. Adhere two of the geometric pattern pieces to the February page. Adhere a white flower bunch to the right of the third hole from the top of the page. Adhere one of the kraft flower bunches to left of the February tab and adhere the other kraft flower bunch the right of the two bottom holes of the page.

Love Valentine’s Day Card

January 15, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Love Valentine’s Day Card. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about creating cards for the occasion. The inspiration for my card came from ModaScrap’s True Love Die. With that element figured out, I added more to the card with die from Joset Designs to finish it off. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. Die cut the heart edge from the Valentine’s Edges out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2. Choose a piece of patterned paper –– the ModaScrap Simply Love Patterned Paper Pack is perfect for this project. Die cut the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle from the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam.

Step 3. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place a stencil with “x’s” overtop of the die cut piece. Sprinkle Red, Rosebud and Hot Pink Magenta Nuance overtop of the stencil and spritz with water, remove the stencil. Allow the rectangle to dry.

Step 4. Place the 3″ Dashing Rectangle overtop of the stenciled rectangle piece and run through your die cutting machine. You’ll end up with the piece shown above step 3 and the piece shown below step 3. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From the True Love Die, you’ll need the small to large hearts. Die cut the hearts out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Hot Pink Magenta Nuance overtop of the Love heart, sprinkle Rosebud Magenta Nuance overtop of the small heart and sprinkle Red Magenta Nuance overtop of the medium heart. Spritz all three hearts with water. Once the hearts are dry, ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Adhere the heart edge to the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle.

Step 7. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stenciled rectangle on an angle overtop of the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle. Foam square the 3″ rectangle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle.

Step 8. Foam square the hearts in a row in the middle of the 3″ stenciled rectangle piece.

Step 9. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love Valentine’s Day Card.
