Krista Schneider Planner Essentials Stamping

Using Stamps On Your Planner!

March 18, 2019

Hi everyone!

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.

Hope you like it!

March Divider

March 14, 2019

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.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Let me know what you think in the comments below.

A Way With Words Planner Essentials Shimmer Sheetz

Sending A Little Luck To A Friend

February 20, 2019

Hi crafters! Judi here with a simple tutorial for you today.

This card will soon be on its way to a friend who is midway through four rounds of chemotherapy, but it would also be perfect for someone starting a new job, about to enter college, or buying a new house.

Experienced cardmakers – look at the photo and proceed! Beginners, please follow the instructions below.

1. Die cut ‘Good Luck’ from dark green Velvet Adhesive sheet.

2. Die cut the Planner Essentials 5 frame from Shimmer Sheetz in color of choice, backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to cutting. (Reminder: A metal adaptor plate is REQUIRED for die cutting Shimmer Sheetz. Review Els van de Burgt’s video tutorial here if you are new to this technique.

3. Emboss outer frame and inner panel with two different embossing folders in coordinating patterns. I used two folders with leaves, but you can use any of your choice!

4. Arrange the elements on the front of an A2 top-fold patterned paper card as shown. Remove the release sheet from the back of the Shimmer Sheetz and Velvet Adhesive to adhere. Add quarter-inch brads to the holes at the top left and right.

5. Use spray adhesive to secure the dried 4-leaf clover. Alternatively, sew down the stem with fine metallic braid or embroidery thread to hold the clover in place. (If you don’t have a real clover, trace around a 3-leaf clover, add the fourth leaf, and hand-cut your own from the Velvet Adhesive sheet.)

TIP: Because a real clover is quite fragile, mail the card inside out to protect it.

OPTION: Instead of securing the embellished frame panel to a card front, back it with cardstock and turn it into a hanging sign! Knot cord or twine through the holes at the top corners.

I hope my project inspired you to send a little luck to someone special!

Judi Kauffman

Supplies:

Other:

Adhesive Velvet in dark green

2 embossing folders of choice

Sanding block

Patterned cardstock

2 quarter-inch brads

4-leaf clover

Spray adhesive OR needle and thread (to secure clover)
