Embellish Your Planner with the Evolution Advanced

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here, and today I’m sharing my March set-up in my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner:

While there are a lot of planner accessories out there, I love making my own. We R Memory Keepers tools make that happen! This time I pulled out my Evolution Advanced machine, a favorite die and one of my go-to embossing folders. First, I created a translucent divider page by embossing a 6×8 sheet of vellum:

Because the embossing folder is only 6×6 inches, I had to adjust the position of my vellum and run it through a second time. However, it was really easy to match up the design and you can’t even tell that it wasn’t embossed in one pass.

Next, I created a planner clip with the bow die. The die is intended to be used with paper, so this faux leather is a little more than it can handle. However, by running it through the Evolution Advanced, the die made a slight cut/impression on the pleather that I was able to use as a guide for my scissors. If you don’t want to run your die through with a thicker material, you could also cut a paper “template” and use it as a pattern on your pleather.

I love it when I can personalize my planner with such a helpful, easy to use tool. And speaking of handy planner tools, did you notice that I used the Typecast typewriter to date my pages and add a little message on my vellum divider? I love using my typewriter in my planner. So easy and such a great look!

  1. If I was lucky enough to win your evolution I would use it to make invitations to my great nephews wedding, and a wedding card. As well as all my future cards for birthdays, sympathy, get well and thank you.

    Yours hopefully
