Autumn Foliage Planner Clip

Hi everyone! I am back with a planner clip I created for Momenta! With Autumn only a couple of days away I decided I wanted to create a planner clip in a Fall theme for my planner.

I started with one of the binder clips from the The Explorer Journal Binder Clips.
I placed a piece of 5/8″ stretch elastic around an ink pen and the edges of the binder clip before cutting. Since ink pens are different sizes I didn’t include the measurement. You do want the elastic to be a little snuggle so your ink pen won’t fall out of the clip.
I adhered each side of the elastic to either side of the clip.
I cut two piece of cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad slightly larger…height wise and adhered the bottom of each piece to either side of the clip. I cut on either side of the elastic the cardstock and folded the middle piece under.
I adhered the “tabs” of the leftover cardstock that was cut over the backside of each side of the clip.
I cut a couple of leaves from crinoline fabric using the Leaves, Acorn and Wood Grain Cut and Emboss Templates. Also if you didn’t know Momenta has a new Diecut Machine too. 😊
I watercolored the leaves with an assortment of orange, yellow and brown inks.

I adhered a piece of ric rac and gems to one side of the clip. I added one leaf to the corner of the clip, a couple of sequins, thread and cording to the center of the leaf.
I clipped the planner clip to one of my notebooks and then added an ink pen. 
It’s a perfect and stylish way to keep my ink pen handy.

ClearSnap: Mum Planner Ink Pen Clip and Fall Notebooks

Hi everyone! Today I two projects in one blog post I would like to share. I created an ink pen clip holder and decorated mini notebooks for the Woodsy Autumn Planner. You can find the Woodsy Autumn blog post HERE in case you missed that.

For the first project I’ll start with directions for the ink pen holder. 

I cut three medium, three small flowers and two leaves from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecutsinked a glass tray with Sunshine and Golden Blend Inks and add water to ink. I laid each flower into the ink mixture, removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray off and ink with Leaf and Frog Blends Inks, add water to ink, laid both leaves into mixture, removed and let dry.

I inked Art Daubers with Butter and Candied Yam Ink and lightly ink the edges of each flower. I added a drop of Zip Dry Adhesive to the center of each flower. Laid each flower on top of each other, pinch in the center, shaped and added a gem to the center of the flower. I folded each leaf down the center and edge with Candied Yam ink, adhered each leaf to the back of the flower with a loop of hemp cording. 

I cut a 1 7/8 inch piece of stretch elastic and adhere each end with Fabri-Tac adhesive to each side of a binder clip. But sure to tuck the elastic up under the “rolled” metal of each side of the clip.

I adhered the flower to elastic loop  and let dry. 

For my second project I cut patterned cardstock to fit the front and back of each notebook and I inked edges of cardstock with Leather Ink and adhere to the front and back of each notebook. I also cut two strips of cardstock and ink edges with Leather ink and glue to the center of each notebook.
cut two wreath diecuts from cardstock and adhere to the front of each notebook. Punch two circles and two seal circles, ink edges with Leather ink and glue to the corner of each wreath diecut. Next I cut two mini flowers, one small flower and a leaf sprig from Crinoline Fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts

I inked a glass tray with Melon and Golden Blend Inks, add water and lay the mini flower diecuts into the mixture, remove and let dry. Ink edges of the mini flowers with Butter ink.
I cleaned the glass tray and ink with Leaf Blends Ink, add water and lay the leaf sprig into ink mixture. Remove and let dry. Ink edges of the leaf sprig with Mint ink.
I adhered a monogram to one of the notebooks and add a mini flower and cut one leaf from the leaf sprig and adhere both on top of the monogram. Glue a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower.
The other wreath notebook apply a drop of glue to the center of the medium flower and pinch and shape. Add a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower along with a leaf from the sprig and loop some hemp cording and glue both the front of the notebook. Also add a mini flower with a gem in the center of the flower next to the medium flower.

The other two notebooks I stamped the words “ideas” and “notes” with the Leather Ink onto patterned cardstock, cut out and adhere one word to each cover. 

I adhered Ric Rac on the front of each cover. Punch two butterflies from patterned cardstock and add next to each word and added gems down the center of each butterfly. 

Next I slid each of the notebooks underneath the elastic cording of the planner.

I clipped the ink pen holder to one of the notebooks and added an ink pen.

As always if you have any questions about these projects please let me.
