Cardmaking Joset Designs Planner Essentials Soft Finish Cardstock

Have a roaring birthday!

May 24, 2023

Hii everyone,

It is time for a new blogpost from me, Lisanne. Today it is a birthday card for the daughter of my neighbor’s . It is her first birtday.

First I made the head of the animals and the safari jeep. I only need the heads because that is enough for the window. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink to make these elements.

And if you adhere these elements together you will get a cute Safari Jeep.

As base I made the Mason Jar with paper from Reminiscene The Book 5. I used the Safari saying stamps for the background.

For the front I cut out the window of the jar and made a grass line in it. As you can see it trimmed this in two pieces other wise I didn’t have enough. But you don’t see that later because I adhere the jeep over that part.

At the top I made some jungle leaves.

I adhere the Safari Jeep.

I adhere the background behind the mason jar and made a small jar with the sentiment ‘have a roaring birthday’.

At least I put the name of the girl at the jeep.

So I hope you like this post about this birthday card. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Monster Birthday

May 22, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I have some birthday parties coming up for some little boys and needed a boy themed card. Today I am sharing one of them.


Cut and assemble the monster from the Monster 3 die set.  Cut a card base from blue cardstock. Cut “Happy Birthday” from the Birthday Flip Card die set using the same blue cardstock that was used for the card base. Cut a rectangle from white cardstock from the Fitted Rectangles die set.


Using blue ink, lightly stencil ink onto two corners of the white cardstock using the stencil from the Planners Stencils 1 set.

Adhere “Happy Birthday” to the top of the stenciled rectangle

Stamp “Little Monster” from the Monster Hugs stamp set. I cut the stamp in half but you can make off “Happy Birthday” if you are uncomfortable cutting the stamps apart 

Adhere the monster to the card panel

Adhere the card panel to the card base and then the card is complete

Hi everyone, It’s Tina here. I played with the Stencil Planners 3 to create Background and topped it off with the Daffodils Dies and the Honey Bear Dies for the Bees. Below are the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/2″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Add Distress Oxide Inks onto a Gel Plate. I used Uncharted Mariner, Rusty Hinge, and Lost Shadow. Use a brayer to spread and mix the inks. Place a Planner Stencil 3 on top of the inks. Remove the stencil and trimmed White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ on top. Remove the cardstock and let it dry for a few minutes.

Step 3 – Diecut Stitched Indented Rectangles using the panel created from Step 2. To add dimension diecut Stitched Indented Rectangles 2 times and adhere to the back of the panel. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Daffodils in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue. For added dimension add some Foam Tape to the backside of the Daffodils.

Step 5 – Diecut Honey Bear (bees) in various colors of cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card front using Foam Tape.

Step 6 – Stamp Zen Sentiment on White Soft Finish Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Diecut the sentiment using Fitted Fishtails. Optional: flip the sentiment and diecut a second time on the other side. Now you have both sides with fishtails. Adhere to card using Foam Tape on the edges and 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape in the center.

This card can be used for occasions by simply changing the sentiment and/or colors. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Let the adventure begin

May 15, 2023

Hi all, it’s Sylvia here for you today at the blog. Those of you who know me, know that I love to travel abroad to countries with a lot of nature, where I hopefully have an opportunity to spot wild animals. As I cannot travel the whole year I have made a fun safari card with animals as a substitute. It requires a lot of diecutting, so grab a coffee or tea and craft along with me.

Step 1: measure a piece of white cardstock of 21 x 29,5 cm (A4 size) and score halfway to form a A5 card

Step 2: use various shades of green ink (I use distress ink) to ink the front side randomly, leaving a white space in the centre (does not have to be perfect at all).

Step 3: diecut in different shades of green cardstock a whole lot of leaves & foliage, from different die sets and glue them randomly as a border at the front of the card, leaving the (white) centre part open.

Step 4: cut away the white centre along the edges of the glued leaves (see photo for reference)

Step 5: diecut the monkey, lion, giraf, elephant, safari jeep, prince and as many other animal body parts that you like. Assemble the “whole” animals, the jeep and its driver.

Step 6: Arrange the assembled animals on the front of the card, as well as all animal body parts. (see photo for reference). The legs, ears and tails (body parts) can be put anywhere between the foliage, you don’t have to show them in total, just a part will do.

Step 7: Put the driver behind the wheel of the jeep, glue them both on the inside of the card, so that you can see it peeking through the open centre at the front. Decorate the inside with the elephant and some stamps. If needed you can even add more foliage, to both the front and the inside.

Step 8: Stamp the sentiment on a large leaf and adhere to the front of the card.

Can you see how many animals are hidden on the front of my card? Just as in real life during a game drive, you cannot always spot all animals through the thick foliage…..

Happy crafting!

Hello everyone. Jackie here today sharing a jewellery box idea made from the book box die set. inside has two compartments, one for rings and one for loose jewellery. This would also make a lovely gift idea for a special occasion.

Step One:

Start by die cutting and building both parts of the book box keeping the two part separate for now.

Step Two:

Using the picture frame die set. Die cut two sides and trim off the angled ends, make sure they fit snugly inside the book box. glue them both in position leaving a tiny gap between that will fit the rings.

Step Three:

Create a magnetic catch. Glue a small piece of metal or magnetic sheet to the inside of one of the catch ends then cover over with a piece of card fussy cut to the same shape. Fix a small magnet to the other flap.

Step Four:

Glue the book box part inside the outer cover. Die cut the bee and decorate the lid using honeycomb, gems and what ever you fancy.

Step Five:

Use the fall out honeycomb pieces to add a button to the catch flap. Stack 4 or 5 pieces together then glue in place.

Step Six:

Decorate the inside in a similar theme then add a piece of gold coloured paper to the front compartment.

There would be lots of way to change the way I have created the inside of this box, you can add more ring parts or ever change the orientation. I hope I have inspired you to make your own jewellery box.

Happy crafting Jackie xx

Save a smile for a rainy day

May 10, 2023

Hii everyone, it is time for a new blogpost from me. I made a tag with different collections. So a lot of play time over here. I made a tag during a Facebooklive at ECD. It looks a little bit the same but I used different products at this project.

First I a started with a nested tag with paper from Reminiscene the book 6. I stamped on the background with two different stamps sets with Versafine Clair Ink. Some prints I stamped directly at the tag but with some stamps I stamped first an another sheet. The stamp at the tag isn’t now that bright of colour.

The next step is making a cluster. I started with the structure dies from the Mannequins dies. I teared this is a smaller piece with not that straight edges. At the bottom I added an edge from the Everyday Elements collection.

I made the Honey Bear with kraft cardstock from Tim Holtz. I edited this paper with sanding disks so you can see the kraft through the upper layer. I like that style.

Back to the cluster I started. I cut three pieces from book 6 ( the circle, number strip and frame). I inked all the edges with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. I adhere the bear at the number strip so he is sitting at it.

At least I added a text which I cut out of book 6. And I also adhere a reinforcement at the tag.

I hope you like this project and got some new ideas. It is a small project with not that much products but it gives you an idea of working with a cluster.

Thankyou for visiting and see you the next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Berry Sweet

May 8, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. Today I am sharing a simple positive motivation card.


Cut and assemble five strawberries from the Strawberry die set. Cut two leaves and both swirls from the Strawberry Die set. I have inked the strawberries and leaves for some added dimension. On the strawberries, I added white gel pen in the debossed berry seeds. Cut a white circle from the Dotted Scalloped Circles die set. Cut a rectangle from pink cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle die set. Cut a rectangle from patterned cardstock from the Fitted Rectangles die set. Cut the word “Berry” from the Planner Essentials 23 die set from the same red cardstock used for the strawberries.

Using a post-it note turn backwards so that the sticky side is up, temporarily adhere the word berry. With finger daubers, add two colors of red ink to create an ombre effect. These are the same two colors of ink used to shade the strawberries in the prior step.

Using the “you’re so sweet” sentiment from the General Sentiments stamp set, stamp the sentiment onto the scalloped circle die cut. I chose to cut my stamp apart so that I could have space for me die cut word. For those that do not wish to cut their stamp, this step could be done with masking off words and stamping them, also leaving a gap for the word “Berry”

Adhere the word “Berry” to the die cut scalloped circle

Adhere the scalloped circle to the patterned rectangle die cut. Then adhere the panel to the pink stitched rectangle die cut 


Adhere the leaves and the two vine swirls to the card panel

Adhere the die cut strawberries to the card panel

To finish off the card, adhere the card panel to a white A2 card base and the project is complete

How to create ‘new’animals

May 4, 2023

Hi all! It is me again here, Sylvia. As you might know, I like to play with my dies and mix and match several die sets to create ‘new’ animals. So here is a little ‘how-to’ to make some new animals with the dies you already own.

Today we will create a small hummingbird, a snake in a basket and a little monkey. Using Soft Finish cardstock, die cut pieces from the following die sets:

For the hummingbird
1682 fox: tail and tail tip
1729 koala: ear
1665 parrot: wings, 1 leg
1684 owl: feet
1664 rhino: tail

First draw lines on the ‘body’ and on the ‘head’ as shown in the photo. Colour all parts to your liking with a colour medium of your choice. I used my markers. Draw an eye on the head (see photo). Assemble as in the photo.

For the monkey:
1931 beaver: 1 leg, 1 arm, eyes
1618 monkey: tail
1746 mermaid: both arms
1707 halloween accessories: skull

Colour all parts in a brown shade, except for the skull, hands and ears. Those need just a hint of cream. Assemble as in the photo.

For the snake in the basket:
2013 food truck accessories: basket
1931beaver: arms, eyes
1703 dragon: face
1671 fire accessories: hose
1978 party time: balloon rope
1735 peel-a-boo love set: mouth

Cut the basket and use only the upper part. Cut the balloon rope in half (this will become the snake’s tongue). Colour all parts and stripe the hose (this is the snake’s body). Use photo for reference and asseble.

Now you have 3 “new” animals that you can use on either a card or in your planner or scrapbook page.
This is how I like to mix and match my dies, just be creative and think outside the box. Have fun inventing new animals. I hope this little tutorial is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me in case something is not clear, I’d love to help you out.

Happy crafting!

Tag set duo

May 1, 2023

Hello everyone Jackie here today. The other day I needed to make a tag at the very last minuet with not much time and that got me thinking, maybe I should make a few tags for my card box that are ready to go and what’s more these would also make great card toppers popped up with foam dots if needed in a hurry.

Stamped Lolly Front:

Stamp out the lollies using black waterproof ink then colour them with water colour paints and set aside to dry.

Die Cut Lolly Front:

Die cut a bunch of lollies, glue them all over then trim off any over hanging bits. Use the trimmed bits to fill any empty areas around the edges then add some gel pen detail.

Attach another die cut tag to the reverse side to add a pop of colour to the back, the message can be written on the back.

Make the Tassels:

Cut a small strip of thin card measuring approximately 2.25″ x 1″ or 6 x 3cm, snip into the strip carefully leaving the top intact creating a fringe. Roll the fringe up using a small paint brush or pencil then unravel and glue a piece of twine to one end. Roll up again gluing in place as you go creating the tassel then fix another tassel to the other end of the twine.

Add your chosen sentiments in any way you like or leave them blank to add when you need them. Here I have added a simple Happy Birthday die cut to one and the other has a black strip of card then a stamped hand cut fishtail banner on top.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to make a few tags for your stash ready to go Happy crafting Jackie x
