 Happy Saturday! 

Today's post, is all about this boho themed La Vie Est Belle Planner Insert. My planner insert uses the new Sidekick Essentials Collection. You'll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my insert at home. 


To start, die cut the macrame from the Sidekick Essentials 9 - Macrame & Page out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.


Choose one of the reinforcements from the Reinforcement Variety Pack. Die cut the reinforcement a twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. You'll need a total of twelve reinforcements.


The next two steps use the Sidekick Essentials 18 - Wave Pocket Die.

Die cut the dragonfly and the dragonfly in the corner of the rectangle out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the rectangle and dragonfly out of a piece of Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. Die cut the tag out of the first piece of patterned paper. Die cut the stitched rectangle out of the second piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of the tag and rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Wild Honey Distress Ink to the bee stamp from the Sidekick Essentials - In My Garden Stamp Set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the stamped image out. Ink the edges of the image using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Festive Berries Distress Ink to the flower stamp from the Sidekick Essentials - Paper Love Stamp Set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the La Vie Est Belle quote and stamp onto a piece of kraft cardstock. Fussy cut the stamped image out. Ink the edges of the image and sentiment using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Adhere the first six reinforcements to the left side of the macrame, making sure they line up with the rings in the sidekick essential planner. Flip the macrame piece over and adhere the other six reinforcements over top of the previously adhered reinforcements.


Foam square the tag 1/8" from the left and 1 1/4" from the top of the macrame piece. Adhere the dragonfly rectangle 1/4" from the left and 1 1/8" from the bottom of the macrame piece.


Adhere the dragonfly to the top right corner of the tag. Adhere the patterned paper rectangle 1/8" from the right and 1 3/4" from the bottom of the macrame piece.
