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.

March 3, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you how to create a cute gift tag that’s perfect to add to any gift or gift bag!

To create this gift tag, I’ve used the brand new dies from Joset Designs as well as dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. Cut a piece of White Cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″. From the Tags 9 & More – Sparkle die, place the round tag topper with hole cut out at the top of the cardstock tag. Run through die cutting machine. From a scrap piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the reinforcement circle. Adhere the reinforcement circle overtop of the hole on the tag. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance over the left hand side of the tag. Spritz with water. Ink the edges of the tag using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Set tag aside to dry.

Step 2. From the Party Accessories die, die cut the balloon elements and one of the party hat elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Lucky Clover Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon and solid hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon string and top of the party hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted party hat.

Step 3. From the Monkey die, die cut all of the elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Ground Expresso Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey head, tail, body, arms and legs. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey ears, face, hands and feet. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Black Soot Distress Ink over the entire surface of the eyes. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire surface of the banana.

Step 4. Die cut the 1 1/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the banner down to 3″. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the birthday sentiment from the Safari Sayings and stamp onto the banner. Ink the edges of the banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. Adhere the monkey together. Add the mouth in by drawing it in with a black pen.

Step 6. Adhere the banana underneath the monkey’s right hand. Adhere the ballon together and then adhere it to the left hand. Adhere the party hat together and adhere it on an angle on the monkey’s head.

Step 7. Foam square the birthday sentiment 1/2″ from the bottom of the tag. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the monkey to the left of the birthday sentiment.

Step 8. To finish off the gift tag, tie some twine through the top of the hole on the tag.

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