Splish SplashJune 23, 2021
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

The FishermanApril 28, 2021
Hi All! Lisanne here again. I think a lot of you have dies from Joset’s collections. For this card I used a lot of different ones as I love mixing and matching them. I had so much fun creating this card!
Let me tell you how I created this card…
I started with the base. I cut one large stitched square using the Stitched Square (1698) die and colored it with Tumbled Glass and Tea Dye Distress Ink. This gives a picture of land and sky. For the sky I used a mask stencil from the Art Journal Special (SO39). This mask looks like waves, but I used this for clouds.
Than the funniest part of the whole card. Die cut, color and assemble all the pieces. I used Soft Finish Cardstock for this and colored with Diustress Inks. I made some bushes with the Forest Accessories (1688). At these bushes there are growing some flowers. Isn’t this looks cute?
The Fisherman stands in front of the bushes. He is very busy with fishing. The Fisherman is made from the Farmer dies and the Safari Accessories. The fishing rod is a die from the Camping Accessories. And at least the water pool is the mud pool from the Pig.
All the dies I colored with the Distress Ink. Below I will write all the used products. So for now I will thank you all for reading! See you soon!

Fun in the SunFebruary 2, 2021
I am excited to share my next layout I created using lots of goodies from Elizabeth Craft Designs!
To create this layout:
Step 1 – Cover both sides of a 12×12 paper with clear gesso (I used a piece from the Summer Art Collection)
Step 2 – Ink through a stencil (I used the Story telling stencil) then heat emboss
Step 3 – use another stencil and paint in the same area as the first stencil (I used a stencil from the Summer Journal Special)
Step 4 – Use light mat gel and another stencil and while the gel is still wet apply some silk microfine glitter (I used the Make Your Mark Stencil and Midnight Blue glitter)
Step 5 – die cut, ink and assemble 15 flowers ( I used the Florals 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9)
Step 6 – use some craft drops on a chipboard title (I used gold)
Step 7 – assemble as shown and add some art stones, seed beads and gems

Places I’ve Been JournalOctober 21, 2020
Karen here today sharing a dashboard for my new journal that will be a scrapbook of all of the places I’ve been. Since I haven’t been able to travel (much) during the CV19, this will be a fun way to relive those memories!
I decided to use the gorgeous Summer Art paper and die cut two circles using the Fitted Circles Dies. I layered these circles up on blue and grey cardstock that was die cut with the Dotted Scallop Circles dies.
To turn these circles into “planner pages”, I used the die from Planner Essentials 5 to cut the holes as seen above. Then I had the fun in decorating them!
The “gold” in the banner (cut using a Celebration Flags die) is created using 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock that I rubbed with Opal Polish by Creative Expressions (color is Golden Glow). The “blue” is black cardstock rubbed with Opal Polish in Blue Parakeet and Golden Glow. The die for this is from the Decorative Insert set. Those fun letters are from the Butterfly Pocket Insert. I love how all these dies “fit” together so nicely! And, of course, I had to add some reinforcements that were from Planner Labels (hearts) and the Reinforcement Variety Pack (small circles).
For this one, I used many of the same products as above and I added a heart that can be found in the Decorative Insert set. I added a few dots made with the Metallic Gold Craft Drops and a few diamond dots from my stash.
I’m going to have SUCH fun creating pages for my new planner/scrapbook. Hope you like my circle-fun pages!
Craftily yours, Karen

Summer Journal Special SALE | Technique Friday LIVEOctober 16, 2020
Relax and EnjoySeptember 7, 2020
Karen here today. I am loving the fun of mixed media projects created with the Art Journal line. I haven’t actually started my Art Journal (yet), but the products are fund to use in cardmaking too. Like today’s project!
The background for this card was made by using the following steps:
- Cut a piece of 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
- Cover the cardstock with Faded Jeans Distress Oxides
- Smear some Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide on craft mat, spritz with water, and dip the cardstock into the puddle a few times.
- Using the round dots pattern stencil from the Summer Journal Special, add some white ink to the corners.
- Using the odd circle stencil from the Summer Journal Special, add some clear Distress Embossing Ink. (Comes in a dabber for ease)
- Pour some Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder onto the cardstock, remove excess and heat emboss. (I absolutely love that it stuck to some of the small circles, but not all of them!)
- Cover the cardstock with Distress Glaze. The picture below is before application (and bad lighting). Love how it brightens up!
Add a piece of ripped Kraft cardstock to the bottom (for the sand). Next, cut the card-front with the Stitched Rectangles. Die cut and color the palm tree, clouds and starfish from the Summer Journal Special. (I used: Wild Honey Oxide for the starfish, Vintage Photo and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for the tree, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide for the clouds.
Stamp the sentiment from the Beach Sentiments Set and die cut with the Stitched Circles. Stamp a bit of the bubble stamp from the Water Creatures Stamps – using the Tumbled Glass Oxide ink. Finally, finish off with a few random Craft Drops in White.
FuN! Thanks for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen
