Memory Planner Using Instax Photos and Sizzix Dies

I love the idea of using my Personal Planner as a mini scrapbook. These are called memory planners which makes it sound like I’m organizing my memories which might be more accurate than I realize. So with the big Creativation 2017 Show coming up in a few days, I thought I would reveal how my […]

Bindable Dies by Sizzix

They say that necessity is the mother of invention and so it goes with my new Bindable dies that I designed for Sizzix. These dies create edges so that they snap into the binding of various planners and notebooks. I created a quick video to explain how it works because words cannot describe the simplicity […]

Welcome to the Designer Crafts Connection December link up. What started off as a fun, offbeat project for my December DCC post combining several shapes from my Sizzix Mini Photo Embellishing die collection turned into a great make ‘n take at the recent Sizzix Maker Faire. I started by cutting the kraft paper tag shape using […]

On this wreath are vintage button cards, spools, […]

Sizzix Planner Pages

Today I’m sharing how to use my many Sizzix Mini Photo Embellishing dies and stamps on planner pages. These dies and stamps were designed to embellish both the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 small, Polaroid-like photos as well as various planner pages. These fun shapes work well with or without photos. You can see one example of a planner page […]
