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!

Planner Essentials

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.

ModaScrap Planner Essentials Soft Finish Cardstock Stamping

Easy DIY Distress Color Chart

February 13, 2019

Hello everybody! It’s Sara here today and I have a new project for you. Today I’m using the wonderful new stamps from the Planner Essentials line, as well as dies and stamps from ModaScrap, to add a splash of color to your projects!

When I saw the color chart stamp set, I immediately thought that I had to give it a try and make my own Distress color chart.

Here are the steps to make it:

  • Die cut out of some White soft finish cardstock the same number of your ink pads ( I choose Distress Oxide and have 21 of them). I die cut 21 squares of white cardstock with Dashing Squares die from ModaScrap.
  • It would be helpful to have a stamping platform for this project, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry! Place the first square in the platform and stamp the sentiment with an ink of your color chart (optional: if you want you can emboss it with clear embossing powder).
  • Now to the inside: place every square and stamp with Versafine the base of your chart. With the stamping platform it would be easier to stamp multiple times, but you can do the same with acrylic block. Write on the lines the name of your inks and the brand.
  • Choose a stamp (mine is part of a floral wreath from Wedding stamp set from ModaScrap) and stamp it to the correct square.
  • Punch a hole and put them together with a metal ring, embellish it with ribbons and bells.

Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome 2019

January 22, 2019

Hi everyone,

Sandy Diller here! I hope your new year is going well. It is always refreshing to think that we have a chance to start over and that’s what it’s all about with my project today. I have started collecting my Planner Essentials and decided to try something a little different using them. I made a 2019 calendar using the Planner Essentials as my starting point and went from there with products from my Elizabeth Craft Designs stash. I hope you enjoy what I’ve done.

Instead of using the planner itself I began by making my covers using a lightweight chipboard and then covering it with some awesome paper from ModaScrap. I adhered the paper using Clear Double sided adhesive. Using one of the planner pages dies as a template – I made the holes at the top to correspond with all the pages inside. The entire thing is held together by 6 rings.

Because chipboard was used for the covers – it stands up by itself and can be flipped from month to month.

I have linked all the products at the end so you can take a closer look.

This project was so much fun to make and I loved giving it away because I know the recipient will be enjoying it all year long.

HAPPY 2019,

Sandy
