Planner Post - Planner Spread Week #3

Happy Saturday! I'm excited to be sharing with you today my June Week #3 Planner Spread. To create my spread, I've used a variety of the dies from the Planner Essentials line and patterned paper from ModaScrap. You'll want to read below to learn how to recreate my Week #3 Planner Spread at home.


To start, choose two patterned paper pieces from the ModaScrap - Under The Sea Paper Pack. Die cut the Planner Page from Planner Essentials 4 out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the other planner page from Planner Essentials 2 out of the other patterned paper. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the June word from the Month stamp set and stamp onto the tab of the die cut planner page. Ink the edges of the planner pages using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam. 


From the Planner Patterns, you'll need the geometric die. Die cut the geometric pattern twice out of the patterned paper. Die cut the geometric pattern twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the patterned geometric pieces into five pieces. Cut the White Soft Finish Cardstock geometric pieces into three pieces.


From the cut aparts paper from the Under the Sea paper pack, cut out the anchor rectangle and the Sun, Sea & Love rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the To Do stamp from the Reminders stamp set and stamp onto on of the patterned papers. Reapply Jet Black Archival Ink to the To Do stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut out the To Do lists. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Fill in the To Do lists.


Apply Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink to one of the Retro Labels stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply the ink to the stamp and stamp three more times on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink to the same Retro Labels stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply the ink to the stamp and stamp two more times on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut out each label. Apply Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink to the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday words and stamp onto each of the Cracked Pistachio labels. Apply Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink to the Friday, Saturday and Sunday words and stamp onto each of the Peacock Feathers labels. Ink the edges of the labels using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. Fill in each day with a black pen.


Now we will start by assembling the left hand page of the Week #3 Planner Spread.

Adhere the patterned geometric pattern pieces as desired on the patterned paper page without a tab.


Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the patterned paper To Do, the anchor rectangle piece and the Monday to Thursday Labels as desired on the page.


Now we will assemble the right hand page of the Week #3 Planner Spread.

Adhere the White Soft Finish Cardstock geometric pattern pieces as desired on the patterned paper page with the tab.


Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the patterned paper To Do, the Sea, Sun & Love rectangle piece and the Friday to Sunday Labels as desired on the page.


Here's a few closeup photos of the the finished Week #3 Planner Spread.

To create my page, I've used a variety of the dies from the Planner Essentials line. You'll want to read below to learn how I created my Hello June Planner Page.


To start, choose a piece of patterned paper from the Just Say Cheese Paper Pack. Die cut the planner page from the Planner Essentials - 10 set out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the same paper pack, choose another piece of patterned paper. Die cut the reinforcement circles from the Planner Essentials - 1 out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Choose another piece of patterned paper from the paper pack. From the Planner Months die, die cut the June word out of the patterned paper. 


Choose one of the labels from the Planner Labels die. Die cut the label out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the label using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Next, you'll need two of the patterned papers that you've already used. Choose one of the flags from the Celebration Flags set. Die cut the Celebration Flags die once out of each patterned paper piece.


You'll need to choose another piece of patterned paper from the Just Say Cheese Paper Pack. Die cut the rectangle strips from the Planner Elements out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the rectangle strips using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Choose one more piece of patterned paper from the Just Say Cheese Paper Pack. You'll also need one of the patterned papers you used before. Die cut the large rectangle out of one of the patterned papers from the Planner Essentials - 6 die. Die cut the small rectangle out of the other patterned paper from the Planner Essentials - 6 die. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the cut aparts in the Just Say Cheese Paper Pack, cut out the Hello card. Cut the card down to 2 1/2" x 3 1/4". Round all four corners. Ink the edges of the card using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the holes on the planner page. Adhere the rectangle strip to the middle of the planner page.


Foam square the large rectangle 1/2" from the right and 2 1/4" from the top of the planner page. Adhere the small rectangle 1 7/8" x 1 5/8". Adhere the Hello card 3/8" from the right and 2 1/2" from the top of the planner page.

Elizabeth Craft June Group Post - Wedding Projects

Happy Monday!

We are switching things up on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog this year and instead of having a designer challenge, we are now having group posts each month. Each month the group post will have a theme and some or all of the design team members will participate. For June's theme it's all about Wedding themed Projects!

Wedding season is in now upon us and sometimes creating for this special occasion can be challenging. For this month's group post, I created this simple, yet pretty, wedding card thats perfect to give to that special couple. To create my card, I've used dies, stamps and patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as dies from Els van de Burgt Studio. Grab your favourite beverage and read below as I have a tutorial for you so that you can re-create my card at home. You'll also want to make sure to stop by the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to check out the rest of the team's projects. 


To start, die cut the Flowers Lace Frame from the Flowers Lace Frame out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the Flowers Lace Frame down to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Ink the edges of the frame using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


 From the same Flower Lace Frame, die cut the label out of black cardstock.


Die cut the 2 1/4" Dashing Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the flower stamp from the Wedding Sentiments stamp onto a block and apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the flower image. Stamp the flower at the top of the circle. Reapply the ink to the flower stamp and stamp the flower at the bottom of the circle. From the same stamp set, you'll need the Mr & Mrs. stamp. Apply Emboss It Ink to the stamp. Stamp the sentiment in the middle of the circle. Sprinkle Pastel Pink Embossing Powder overtop of the sentiment. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. The last stamp you need from the stamp set is the small heart stamp. Apply Emboss It Ink to the stamp. Stamp the heart around the sentiment. Reapply the ink to the heart stamp and stamp again around the sentiment. Sprinkle Pastel Pink Embossing Powder overtop of the two hearts. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Colour the flowers using Tombow Markers 177 & 850. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From a piece of black cardstock, cut a piece that measures 5 3/4" x 5 3/4".


Choose a piece of patterned paper from the Butterfly Dream Paper Pack. Die cut the 1 1/8" Stitched Fishtail Banner out of the patterned paper piece. Cut the banner down to 4 7/8". Ink the edges of the banner using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Adhere the Flower Lace Frame to the 5 1/2" piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the 5 1/2" piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to the 5 3/4" black cardstock.


Foam square the black cardstock label to the middle of the flower lace frame. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the banner to the middle of the label.


Adhere the circle to the middle of the label, over top of the banner. To finish off the card, cut a card base that measures 5 3/4" x 11 1/2". Adhere the card front to the card base.
