Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I’m excited to be sharing with you some pages I created using the Planner line. These dies and stamps can be used for planning, but I also enjoy using them to document special moments in my life. Today’s post is all about a mighty fine time I had with three wonderful women at the last Scrapbook Expo in my area!
Hello everyone! Annette Green here again to share more of my Greenville planner pages. Today’s pages are about the early signs of progress toward our move. The house is in disarray, there’s paint swatches all over the walls, and my craft room is being reduced by half – which is a feat in itself!
While sorting through my craft room, I came across some tags I had experimented on with Distress Oxides, and some pages I created with my Gelli Plate. From a big stack, I pulled the greens, blues and yellows to coordinate with my Greenville planner.
I adhered one of the Gelli printed pages to the back of my existing page in my planner. This was the first paper in the photo above (far left) with a totally white background. I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the entire surface, some stenciling of a die-cut clock, and then I stamped the dot pattern with black ink, using the Background Stamps 1 set.
From the dictionary collage page, I die-cut this pattern using the Planner Patterns die, then trimmed off the top right corner.
I adhered the cut piece to a graph patterned paper then trimmed around. This will become a unique pocket for my left page.
For my pages I die-cut the round hole reinforcers from this tag. I ended up die-cutting several more elements as you’ll see in the next few photos. I loved using up things I had in my stash!
I think my new favorite die set is Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces. There are SO many great frames, fold-over tabs, banners, tags, and arrows! I’ve been keeping a list of what bigger ticket items we’ve sold and what is left to sell so I made a record of it here in our early stages of preparing to move. This will slip into the pocket on my left hand page. The photo on the left is my messy craft room.
My righthand page is cut from the Planner Essentials 6 set. The photo shows a mural I painted over 20 years ago is now being covered up with a neutral gray paint. It’s symbolic to me that things don’t last forever, only memories.
There are a lot of emotions that come with moving away from a home we’ve been in for 20 years. I’m not sad, actually rather excited, cut at the same time feeling sentimental. I think I’ll be glad I documented this process when I look back on it in the future.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Don’t fret if you can’t leave a comment here. If you wish to, you can hop over to my blog.
Good morning! Laura here today to share my latest layout! I love to create mixed media type layouts and the awesome dies from Elizabeth Craft are a perfect fit!
To create this layout:
Step 1 – die cut at least 15 – 1 3/4″, 2 – 2 3/4″ and 3 – 1 1/4″ stitched hexagons
Step 2 – adhere them on the main page and using cardboard or foam dots on a few
Step 3 – cover the page with clear gesso.
Step 4 – use your favorite stencil and modeling paste down the center of the page and on the side then dry with heat gun
Step 5 – using various mists and powders color the stenciled images and dry with heat gun
Step 6 – using the same mists and powders create some splatters
Step 7 – using white ink stamp the star background from the background stamps 1 in various places around the layout
Step 8 – mat and adhere your photo
Step 9 – die cut the banner, Believe, and celebration flags and adhere
Step 10 – using media gel adhere some art stones and beads to the layout
All done! Thanks so much for stopping by.
