How to Make a 2020 Planner with the Etch Quill

Hello We R friends! It’s Aly Dosdall here with you again. Now that Christmas is over, I’m excited to start the new year and set some goals. To help keep track of my goals, tasks, and ideas I created a 2020 Planner with some of my favorite We R tools.

My favorite part of the “Make It Happen” 2020 Planner is the cover that I made with the Etch Quill and my Silhouette Cameo 3. I used the 4×6 inch acetate sheets that come with the Etch Quill Kit and some art from the Heidi Swapp Foil Quill USB Design Drive. I bound my planner together with The Cinch binding tool. Tip: remember to leave at least a 1/2 inch margin along the left edge for binding.

I placed a 4×6 piece of dark pink solid cardstock behind the etched plastic sheet to add some contrast for visibility. I also added a strip of patterned paper and a few stickers from the Dear Lizzy New Day collection.

For the inside pages, I trimmed down some plain lined paper to 4×6 inches, and made some patterned paper dividers with The Works All In One Tool.

I added some pockets that I made with the Pocket Maker Punch Board to the dividers to hold loose papers and ephemera.

I punched and bound the covers and all the inside pages with The Cinch binding tool and some new blue Cinch Wire. Then I added a tassel from the Dear Lizzy New Day collection to finish it off.

Ombre Glitter Favor Bags with the Glue Quill

Hello, and Happy Monday friends! Aly Dosdall here to get your week started off with a little sparkle and shine. I know we’re all still totally focused on Christmas, but I just had to share a fun party favor idea for New Year’s Eve using one of my favorite new tools, the Glue Quill along with my Silhouette Cameo 3.

The Glue Quill is a glue pen attachment for you cutting machine. It doesn’t require power and can fit into your pen holder or blade holder depending on the type of cutting machine you have. I love how the Glue Quill creates a professional quality look on projects using SVG files from the Foil Quill Design Drives or from your own library of files. Check out the step-by-step video tutorial below!

While this project is for New Year’s Eve, you can create this same ombre glitter effect on projects for any theme–birthdays, Christmas, baby or bridal showers, anniversaries, etc.

Simply switch out the artwork for something that fits with your celebration theme, and switch out glitter colors to coordinate. Just remember to choose one light color, one medium, and one dark.
