Hii all! It’s is Lisanne here today with a new blogpost. It is almost Christmas so let’s give some cards to lovely people around you.
For this post I want to share an explosion card. This card is made with a punchboard from We R Memory Keepers and decorate with ECD stuff. It will be a great gift for my 2 cousins.
First I start with making the envelope. I used a piece of the beautiful Worn Wood Paper. At the front I stamped ‘To:…… From:…. This is a stamp who is in the Classic Christmas kit.
In the right corner I made a snowflake with some Nuvo Glimmer Paste and the mask from de AJS Winter stencils.
I add some trees from Planner Essentials 13 for the snowflake. Just coloured with some Distress Ink and adhere it.
On the backside is a stamp from the Classic Christmas Kit to and a banner with ‘hold here’. And then…….
Open the envelope. So you can hold and pull.
As you can see you can see things like a punchboard in combination with dies, paper and masks from ECD. I realy like it. Hopefully you enjoyed it to.
Thankyou so much for watching! See you soon!
Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink.

The new Elizabeth Craft Designs release from both Esther and Joset are so much fun that they invite for more than just planner pages or cards. I made this “scarry house” into a list to give it a cozy place in the house during the Halloween period.
So I started working with all kinds of dies, ink, embossing powders, gilding wax, glossy accents and embossing plates. I walked around with very dirty fingers for 2 days but the result is there.
Look at that scarecrow. It would even scare me!
And the hayloft, I wouldn’t like to spend the night there either.
The hay wagon is full of pumpkins but has also been left like this, it will not be the farmer in the hayloft????
Even the farm, by day he looks so friendly but by night, brrrrr
There she goes, the witch, on her broomstick and accompanied by bats.
Everything in a nice frame that I first embossed with a very old embossing stencil.
This is the background made with Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock and all kinds of inks, sprays and water. I personally think it turned out to be a very nice project. I love doing this so much, playing with everything I have and then more and more ideas and things come up. Secretly I can go on with this project for hours but my art teacher once said that you have to stop on time. It may not be a drawing but I took that advice to heart, enough is enough.
I hope you also get a bit inspired and see what else is possible with all these beautiful dies and stamps from Joset and Ester’s collections.
It’s a bit early yet but wishing you all a nice Halloween!
With love Marjolijn.

Yeah I know I’m a little early on but oh it’s so much fun too!
It should be a little more spread out over the year but Christmas and Halloween are my favorite parts to create for.
This page is for my DDBD (December Day By Day)
The wish lists are there, and for me there is only 1 thing on the list.
I want……a white christmas. Snow!!!!
I made this page with the Planner Essentials 22 Top loading. He’s so much fun, one of my favorite die sets.
The paper I used is from Charlene and Ilse’s collection Mystical Winter.
And this super cute Santa, is from Joset’s collection. Wonderful to combine everything together.
The party just keeps getting bigger.
Here are the wish lists. The stamp is from my own collection, the text stamp is from E.C.D. CS157. So cute!!!
In the top loader I glued a package of a stamp set and used it as a shaker. There’s mica in it.
I made the text with the Planner Essentials 23 Retro alphabet trio.
The date is stamped in the background. For this I used the Long & Tall numbers with December stamped with the CS116 months. Unfortunately I no longer see it in the shop.
The page is finished with the snow stars from reinforcement pack 2 that have been edited with Silk Microfine Glitter Cool diamond.
This page makes me happy and I hope you do too.
Are you a little inspired again?!
Browse through the stuff you already have, there are so many fun things you can create…..let’s get started.
Thank you for your visit
With love, Marjolijn.

Hello! Welcome – Samantha here. Today I’m sharing this fun card! This zebra is one of my favourite animal dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I decided to create a 60’s vibe background with some planner stamps and dies – the only thing missing is the shiny disco ball!
Step 1: On Copic friendly card. stamp a row of the Background 3 stamp as shown below.
Step 2: Using Copic markers colour in the small squares. Use different colours and continue to colour until you are happy with the desired look.
Step 3: Trim the card front to measure: 10.5cm x 14.5cm
Step 4: Die cut the zebra, colour in the zebra stripes, then assemble the zebra and adhere to the card front.
Step 5: Using embossing ink stamp the sentiment – from Safari Sayings clear stamp set then apply a generous amount of white embossing powder. Heat to set the embossing powder. Die cut the sentiment using the Puzzle Page Art Journal die
Step 6: Adhere the sentiment to the card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow. Die cut the music notes from Planner Essentials 10 and adhere to the card front.
Step 7: Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.
Hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial – a bright colourful card to celebrate the party animal in all of us!

Hii everyone! Here I am again, Lisanne. I’m ready to show a new page in my square TN. It’s still a bit new for me to work so small, but I really like it. The best part is that you can process all kinds of collections in it. So that is what I want to show you today.
For this page I used the paper Rainbow of Happiness from Ilse and Charlene. Such a beautiful, colourful paper. The Poloraid Page is perfect to use as base. But I want to give it something special. So I made some dots in the paper with the Honeycomb Dots. Isn’t it a beautiful dies?
I also added some light texture paste with a mask stencil. When this paste is still wet, I added some Silk Microfine Glitter Silverado. When it dries the glitter stick to it. This colour glitter combines perfectly with this paper.
Maybe some of you know my style of working and combine different collections. That’s how I did it this time. I used the super cute Donkey from the Farm Collection. All coloured with Distress Ink, but you can do that in you own style.
The crate is a part of the Farm Accessories. This crate is filled with food for the Donkey. At the right page you can see all these plants growing. When the plants are ripe they are ready to harvested.
So at the right page you see all the plants from the Home Jungle. They are growing in a beautiful place. All the plants are coloured with Distress Oxide. I tried to let go of control, so that means some parts are darker, some lighter haha. Just taking step by step. But at the end I really like it.
So at least I added a beautiful hanger which say ‘home jungle’. At the back of this hanger you can see a small part of jute, great combination. At the left page I added a little banner with Farm Fresh.
I think I’ve told you everything about these pages, hopefully you like it.
Thankyou so much for reading and have a great day!
Kind regards Lisanne

Karen here today sharing another couple pages I’ve made for my “Places I’ve Been” journal. I have very much enjoyed going back through old pictures and reliving some of these fun moments. Today’s pages are about a trip I made to Lincoln City, Oregon back in August 2017. I had decided to go spend a couple days with my parents who were vacationing there, drove 11 hours and was lucky enough to be there during the total eclipse!
The base for my page was cut with the Planner Essentials 3. On the front I also used the Planner Essentials 23 – Retro Alphabet Trio to cut out the letters and added a stamp from the Family stampset to the tab. The “love” die can be found in Planner Essentials 3, and I cut out the “Total Solar Eclipse” journaling piece from a die in the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces set. The arrow is also from that set. I added the cute glasses from the Party Accessories Kit. And of course, no page would be complete for me without reinforcements from the two variety packs.
For the back of the page, I used the Planner Essentials 36 – Windows Overlay. To get the four-box overlay, I just basically cut off the bottom two boxes with a pair of scissors. The #sofab is also from that set. The stamp on the tab is from the Family stampset as is the stamp on the top of the page.
The yellow picture above in the corner shows an “oops” moment of mine where I hadn’t closed a black ink pad and accidentally dropped the page on top of the ink pad. I decided to turn it into a design element by adding dots and adding a line and dots elsewhere on my layouts. I kinda like it 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Craftily yours, Karen

Hii all! It’s Lisanne here. It is time for a new blogpost from me. So the weather here in the Netherlands getting better and better. The Under the Sea Collection is perfect to use at this time of the year. I really like this Collection in combination with the square TN.
For this pages I used the Poloroid page and the beautiful Rainbow of Happiness paper. I used the paper with the blues and green colours. So let’s start with the Octopus page, doesn’t he look cute?
The Puzzle Page is a dies set with a lot of dies. I used the biggest frame and the splash. I used a thin denim sheet, that looks perfect with the Rainbow of Happiness paper. I used the frame without the splash with the Octopus.
The octopus is coloured with Distress Ink, some high lights with the a gell pen and glossy accents at his eyes. The eyes look rounder. But be carefully with these accents, they have to dry a little time.
I adhere some coral from the Summer Journal Kit in different colours to the page. Love all these colour explosion. The little fish at the right is also from the Summer Journal kit. At least I make a life buoy, which is a dies from the Whale, and stamped the text Splish Splash.
The second page is with the sea Turtle. He is so adorable. I told you that I made a splash from a denim sheet. The part who felt out is glued at the Turtle page. But only half of the splash, the other half is at the back. I also glued some waves from the Summer Journal kit at this page. I didn’t know if you see this that good, but for now it looks good haha.
I build up the Sea Turtle with ofcourse Distress Ink. Only the Turtle wasn’t enough for me. So at this page I made coral to but now with different colours. In combination with the other page, it looks beautiful!
I also made some accessories from the diving accessories. But I think they are laying a very long time at the bottom of the sea. They turning a little bit green haha.
I think I’ve told you everything about these two TN pages. I’ve had a lot of fun making these pages with all these beautiful colours.
Thankyou so much for reading! And hopefully I see you soon!
Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink
