Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Suzanna Lee Cycle 12
Yes, you read that correctly, planner pages using Craftwell's Cut'nBoss, embossing folders and dies! I know, right?! Crazy. But very possible and so incredibly easy to do. Planners are all the rage these days and seeing the things that people do/for their planners is so fun. It's not simple anymore. People dress their planners better than themselves sometimes. Today I'm sharing with you some tips and tricks to dressing your planner using Craftwell goodies, yes, indeed!
The planner pocket on the right hand side of that picture was created using cardstock that I ran through my Cut'N Boss with a large TC/Craftwell embossing folder. I thought the words were appropriate for February. The pocket is perfect for storing little love notes, receipts for the month, you name it. Even bits and pieces and memorabilia collected through out the month to add to scrapbook pages. The label die from the Thankful Holiday Pocket die collection made quick work of a place to identify what month this is.
No variation to the sandwich that you will run through your Cut'N Boss, the same old sandwich usual with TC/Craftwell's large embossing folders.
This is what it looks like before you create the pocket from it. Trim a piece of patterned paper to size and create your pocket. I still don't have one of those fancy planner hole punches so just the good ol single hole punch and a template work for my A5 planner.
A closer peek at the embellishments and the label die I mentioned earlier.
You can also use the dies to create fun embellishments to your monthly calendar as I have done above.
Dies make so easy to cut what works for you and add to the planner just as you would your scrapbook pages. A while ago I showed you hto use your label die to create a file folder label that folds over. That would be perfect for your planner pages. My monthly pages are pre-tabbed and I didn't need to do that here. Instead I used hearts, "love this" and circle heart to dress up my month of February. The circle heart I double backed so that it works like a paperclip of sorts. You get a better view of that above with the detail shot.
Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you are inspired to dress up planner! If you have done so using your Craftwell supplies, do share!!
