DIY Tag With Acetate Window

August 6, 2019

Good morning, crafters! Today, we’re sharing these beautiful pages created by DT member, Charlene van der Vorst.

Using dies from the Planner Essentials line, along with a few other from ECD, she shows us how we can easily create pages with beautiful watercolors and a see-through acetate window!

We are in love with this little owl too! Did you know that Charlene designed it? In the last Planner Essentials release, Charlene designed two stamp sets: Moments of Life and Pure Spring, where this cute owl is from. We can’t wait to show you what she’s working on next! (Soon!!)

Charlene hosted a live video tutorial on her Facebook page, showing us the step-by-step of how she created this beautiful tag. (Note: this tutorial is in Dutch, but she does a fabulous job showing every step!)

Let us know what you think of this technique below!

Step-By-Step: July Title Page

July 11, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you a title page for inside my planner to mark the start of July.

To create my title page, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials collection and ModaScrap. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step one. From the Planner Essentials – 1 die set, die cut the page out of a piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step two. From the Planner Essentials – 5 die set, die cut a set of the reinforcements twice out of another piece of coordinating patterned paper. Ink the edges of the reinforcements circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step three. Die cut the page from the Planner Essentials – 2 die set out of a third piece of coordinating patterned paper. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step four. Die cut the 2 3/4″ Dashing Circle out of the backside of one of the coordinating patterned paper pieces. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step five. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 5 die set out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step six. From the Planner Elements die set, die cut three stitched hexagons from one of the patterned papers. Die cut four stitched hexagons from one of the other patterned papers. Ink the edges of the hexagons using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step seven. Die cut the circle wreath from the Planner Pocket – 2 die set twice out of the two patterned papers you used for the stitched hexagons.

Step eight. From the Planner Months die set, die cut the July word out of one of the patterned papers used for the circle wreaths. Die cut the July word a second time out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step nine. Adhere six of the reinforcements to the left hand page. This completes your left hand page of the spread.

Step ten. Adhere the other six reinforcements to the right hand side page.

Step eleven. Adhere the stitched hexagons as desired on the tag. Trim off any hexagons that are hanging over the tag. Ink the edges of the hexagons if needed using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Foam square the tag to the middle of the right hand page.

Step twelve. Foam square the dashing circle to the middle of the tag. Adhere the two circle wreaths overtop of the dashing circle, making sure the wreaths are both showing.

Step thirteen. Adhere the patterned paper ‘July’ slightly overtop of the ‘July’ White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the July word to the middle of the dashing circle. This finishes the right hand page of your planner spread.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my July Title Page.
