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.

Father’s Day Gift Idea

May 18, 2019

Hello, it’s Sandy here today!

We all know how difficult it can be to come up with a gift or card for the men in our lives, so I’m here to share an idea using my dies and stamps from the Planner Essentials. I love my ECD Planner but wanted to show you another way to use the great elements from this collection.

This fun photo holder can act as a card by folding it up to mail, or as a photo frame to display all of Dad’s favorite photos. It is perfect for his desk because it’s double-sided. I’ve added some small tags to each section so a personal message or information could be added.

This is a fun project –– so let’s get started making it.

I knew that I wanted 5 panels so the first thing to do is cut 10 large tags, 10 small tags and 10 Photo Frames. I have linked all the products below so you can easily find the sets I used. Also needed is 10 black strips of black cardstock to go on the frames behind the word “photo”. 1″ is the perfect height.

The Manly Man Paper Collection from ModaScrap was used for this project.

Assembly of the tags is pretty fast and easy. The black strip was added to the back and then the larger tag was added directly above that. The sizing on these are perfect.

With that completed, the small tags were stamped and decorated using the dies and stamps in the collection. For the final touch I edged all the tags with some brown ink. I then set everything aside to work on the stand.

To make the stand, two sheets of 120# black cardstock were used. The tags are about 3″ wide so the panels measure 3.25″ X 5.5″. I simply scored and folded the cardstock every 3.25″ and left a connecting tab on one end of the first section. When the two panels were connected a tag was positioned on the panel and a pencil line was added where a cut line should be. A few quick snips with the scissors and its ready to go.

Double-sided foam tape was added to each panel so it would stand out from the base. After adding the small tags with a black brad, I laid the panels out for placement.

A couple little trinkets were added from the Tim Holtz collection: the key, the stars and the charm (where 2019 was added).

All that is left now is to add my personal messages, information and photos. I’ll use the same photo frame from the die set to cut the photos so they will fit perfectly.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope this has sparked a few ideas.

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting,

S@ndy

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.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my March Calendar Page and Important Dates Tag.

February Planner Page

February 6, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my February Planner Page. For the start of each month, I love creating a planner title page that either reflects an occasion that happens in that month or a season. To create my February Planner Page, I’ve used dies from the Planner Essentials collection and Els van de Burgt Studio. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. On a scrap piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, use a blending tool with foam to blend Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and Candied Apple Distress Ink on the cardstock. Die cut the small Entwined Hearts die twice out of the Worn Lipstick side of the cardstock. Die cut the small Entwined Hearts die twice out of the Candied Apple side of the cardstock. Ink the edges of all the hearts using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Blackboard Alphabet die, die cut the F, E, B and dot out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the letters and dot. Ink the edges of the letters and dot using a Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. Choose two pieces of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Simply Love Paper Pack. Die cut the large Entwined Heart out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the medium Entwined Heart out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the hearts using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 4. Die cut the 3 1/4″ Stitched Heart out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the heart using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From one of the patterned papers you already used, die cut the 1 1/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of the paper. Place the notched side of the stitched fishtail banner on the other side of the patterned paper to create a notch on the other size. The banner will end up measuring 4 3/4″ long. Ink the edges of the banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Simply Love Paper Pack. Die cut the planner page from the Planner Essentials – 1 die out of the patterned paper. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the February Calendar stamp and stamp onto the tab of the page. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the bubble stamp from the Patterns 2 Stamp Set and stamp onto the page. Reapply ink to the bubble stamp and stamp again on the page. You’ll need to repeat this step three more times onto the page.

Step 7. With a piece of foam square, adhere the banner to the middle of the page. Then, adhere the stitched heart to the middle of the banner.

Step 8. Adhere the large entwined heart over top of the stitched heart. Adhere the medium entwined heart to the middle of the stitched heart.

Step 9. Adhere the ‘FEB.’ to the middle of the stitched heart. Adhere the small hearts randomly around the hearts on the planner page. To finish off the page, add white lines to the bubbles where the other lines are.

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