2016 Daily Planner with Craftwell

Happy New Year!!!
I am so excited about the new year...it is going to be fabulous!!!
BUT...
Each year brings a new daily planner for me!!!
This year I selected a Simple Stories Snap Album along with calendar refill package. 
It is a fabulous way for me to place all my design work in but to also add other items in my busy life. 
The best thing though the pages are large enough to do a bit of project life along with adding photo pages.
I enjoy decorating my daily planner. 
SO....
I began by first cutting a small piece of chipboard along with some red burlap that matched the chevron on the album.
I ran the chipboard through Xyron Creative Station, placed it on the red burlap.
 Remove the threads around all four edges till you get to the edge of the chipboard.
Trim evenly around to make the threads more uniformed. 
Lay the prepared burlap on top of album so you can see where to apply gesso.
Remove burlap.
Apply white gesso using stencil and palette knife.
Allow to dry completely.
Die cut rectangle scallop dies using the Cut N Boss along with a platform, two A plates, B plate and metal shim.
Adhere burlap to top of album. 
(Lay die cut rectangle scallops on mats and place on top of burlap to see placement.)
Die cut doily medallion using the Cut N Boss and two A plates.
Adhere doily medallion will be just under the mats. 
Adhere mats to top of burlap.
Die cut numbers using the Craftwell Cut N Boss along with a platform, two A mats, B mats and shim.
Adhere on the side of the album. 
Fussy cut sunflowers.
Adhere the sunflowers here and there to the top of the album.
Add a few sunflowers with pop dots. 
Add metal buttons to a few of the sunflowers.
Wha-La...here is my 2016 Daily Planner!!!
I hope I have inspired you to get your Cut N Boss ready to create one for yourself. 
(HINT: If you can't find a Snap Album...try a chipboard or other type album.)
