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.
As the name suggests, they provide additional support to the die-cut-holes on your planner pages! The new Planner Essentials release offers even more reinforcement designs, allowing you to play around with them more!

It’s Sara here today and I would like to show you how I use the Krista circle background and birds and branches background stamps in my ECD planner!
This page is as simple as you can see: first step is to create you background with Distress Ink and water.
Then you move on to the flowers, stamping all your elements on a piece of watercolor paper with dark brown ink.
Watercolor all the images and fussy cut them all with the fine point scissors, place all your pieces on the page and trace a line with a pencil where you shold make your stitched lines to create the stems.
Sew with a sewing machine or embroidery and add the flowers and the leaves with glue or mounting tape to create that dimention you see in the pictures.
Hello crafters! Luciana here today with a planner project for you –– it’s all about dividers!
I love memory keeping, and I love choosing something each month to put as a highlight on my monthly divider. Today I will show you how I made my March one.
Step 1. Prepare the divider background.
Use the divider die from the set Planner Essential 2 and the holes reinforces from the Planner Essential 1 with a White Soft Cardstock. Use a spray ink to create a watercolored background and the distress ink pad Walnut Stein to distress the edge. Add more a more interesting design with the letters stamp from the set Patterns 2, and some blue watercolor spots.
Use the die with the letters from the set Planner Patterns with White Cardstock. Color it with the Antique Linen ink pad. Add some strips of washi tape, as showed below.
Step 2. Prepare the first Tag.
Die cuts from the set Planner Essential 2:
1 large tag with a White Soft Cardstock and color it like the divider
1 arrow with a White Soft Cardstock
1 word “details” and the “noted” circle with the black cardstock
Die cuts from the set Planner Essential 1:
1 hole reinforces with a pink glitter sheet
1 small squared frame
Take a photo of the month that you like to save, and then assemble all the pieces as showed below.
Step 3. Prepare the other Tags.
Die cuts from the set Planner Essential 2:
1 large tag with a White Soft Cardstock and color it like with the Walnut Stein distress ink
1 small tag with a white Soft Cardstock
Decorate the large tag with the stamps from the sets Reminders and Months. Prepare some ephemera on random pieces of papers, using the stamps:
the “date” ticket from the set Month
the “tag” from the set Schedule, the squared pattern from the set Patterns 1
the word “Mar” from the set Schedule
the “word of day” from the set Calendar
the word “urgent” from the set Schedule
You can use also some cropped pictures, postage stamps and safety pins.
Assemble the pieces as showed below.
Step 4. Complete the dividers.
Use the metal safety pin to keep together the 3 tags on the divider.
