Today I'm bringing you a fun tutorial which is for the ever growing and popular “Planner Community”. Planners have made a real comeback in the last while with the twist of now decorating in them. Some are used as actual planners for appointments, etc. and some people choose to use them for memory keeping. “Planner kits” have also become all the rage and today’s tutorial is to show you how you can create your own kit embellishments with decorative papers and stamps that you already own. So if you're one of the many planner girls out there, I hope I can inspire you to create some original embellies for your planner using bits and pieces from your stash! Today I will be using the "Berry Cafe" Collection by Heartfelt Creations!
For our next step, let’s give our sticky notes a little elegance by adding some glitter to the whipped topping on the cold treat!
Moving along to our next step, once the glitter has dried adhere some repositionable adhesive to the top of the back side of the image and then stick the image with adhesive to the top of one of the other images.
Next, grab your dashboard and all of the paper pieces for your clips and slip them into a laminating pouch and laminate. (I just have a cheap laminator from Walmart and it works great!)
Once you’ve run them through the hot laminator and let them cool a bit, it’s time to grab a pair of scissors and start trimming. I follow the outline of the lamination lines close to the items.
I hope you've enjoyed this little tutorial! If you're a planner girl I hope I've encouraged you to try creating some of your own embellishments from paper crafting stash that you already have tucked away in your craft room! If you missed the planner spread earlier this week that I created to coordinate with this tutorial, be sure to check that post out here. (You'll find the instructions in the previous post to create the planner pocket page shown here on the right!)
Until next time...
