The tree sits on a background sponged in Smokey Slate with the Sponge Brayer.  I used post it notes to make sure I got nice clean edges to the sponging.
And check out that little silver enamel gem - it looks almost like a water drop on the tree.  All the items used to make this card are available below.

Back To School With A New Planner - with Free Tutorial!


I have to admit I don't need much of an excuse to make and have pretty things on my desk and the imminent start of the new school year is no exception - even though personally I won't be going back to school!  

Today I have a planner to share with you that would be ideal for managing homework as well as To Do Lists, Craft Ideas Lists (which is what mine will be used for) or any other planning that you wanted to do.

Back To School With A New Planner - with Free Tutorial!  Instructions and supplies available here
It also has the added benefit of being just the right size to take A5 Filofax inserts.  You could of course also make your own insert pages and have just the planner you want or need.

Back To School With A New Planner - with Free Tutorial!  Instructions and supplies available here
The basis of the planner is a Kraft 6x8 inch Project Life Album which you can purchase here.  I have decorated the front using a piece of patterned paper measuring 8 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches (21 x 21.5 cm).  I inked the edges and decorated it with my chosen letters before sticking it to the album cover.

Next I made some dividers.  Each is a piece of coordinating cardstock measuring 7 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches (18.5 x 21 cm).  Using the Envelope Punch Board I punched notches along one of the long edges of the card. I punched at 1 and 3 inches for the outside two dividers and then at 3 inches from each end of the middle divider.  You can of course make your tabs as big as you like and space them how you think will work best for you.  Once I had punched the edges of the notches I cut away the rest of the card along that edge.

The bookmark was made by taking a 4 x 9 5/16 inch (10 x 22 cm) piece of patterned paper and folding it in half.  I stuck the open side together and then used the Envelope Punch Board to punch out the top of the marker.  Alternatively you could use a corner rounder.

Finally I used a hole punch to make the holes for both the dividers and page marker to go into the folder - I used a piece of Filofax Paper as a guide since I had one to hand but you could just line your paper up in the folder and mark where to punch your holes.
