Desktop Planner Video Tutorial and Supplies List

I've got the full video tutorial of this planner now available on YouTube in 5 parts:

I've used the Graphic45 "Times Nouveau" collector's edition in the remake/tutorial of this planner, but if you'd like to make it with "A Ladies Diary", as in the original planner, all measurements have remained the same.

Hope you enjoy!

A Ladies Diary Planner and Tutorial Info

Good Morning!

I've got a little project to share today. This is a 6" x 9" planner that I made using the G45 A Ladies Diary collection. It's a fun and quick project when you just need a little instant gratification:) It will take a few hours to create, a nice weekend afternoon crafty time.

I will have a free YouTube video tutorial of this planner up on my YouTube channel in a week or so. I'll be recreating it with G45's Times Nouveau collector's edition, but if you happen to have A Ladies Diary in your vault, you can make it as in the original. All paper measurements and design will remain just about the same.

In the meantime, HERE is a video of the completed planner. I'll provide pics of both planners here on the blog when the video tutorial is available.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Artisan Style Album and Tutorial Info

Here's the pics of my new album using G45's Artisan Style collection.

The video of this album can be found HERE where you can see all of the details, flaps and little hidden areas inside in action.

I've got the PDF Tutorial of this album now available in my Etsy shop HERE.

I'll be sharing a little planner I created using G45's A Ladies Diary very soon. I'll be recreating it with a tutorial most likely using one of the Prima collections as these papers are long retired.

I've finally added a Pin It mouse over button on the photos, so please feel free to pin away.

Hope you're having a great week and thanks for stopping by!
