New Bucket (of Strawberries) Summer Planner Spread

April 11, 2022
Hello again everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with some more Summer planner pages featuring the new Flower Pot/Bucket die set from Joset. I combined Planner Essentials dies with the flower pot and Strawberries die to showcase some cute photos of my dog Suki eating strawberries, as well as a visit from my parents last year. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” style video if you’d like to follow along as I design and assemble these pages.
As I describe in the video, to make more room for journaling and large sized photos, I added a half-page in the middle of my two full-size pages using the Planner Essentials 14 Bookmark 1 set. This is an interesting way to layer and still see some of the elements from the other pages peeking through.
The star of the show, besides Suki, is the rusty bucket full of strawberries. With a few alcohol inks and some silver metallic cardstock, you can get the same look quickly and easily. It makes a fun embellishment to the page to help tie everything together. I hope you take a moment to watch the video, as I share some techniques I used and helpful design tips along the way. All products I’ve used today are linked below, in addition to some of the other new dies I showed in the video which I used on other projects. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!

Thinking Of You – New Florals with Karan

April 6, 2022

Good morning friends and welcome back! It’s Karan Gerber here today to share a card with you designed using Florals 16 and the new Shadow Frame die.

Being the frame die is large for a card, I cut it down on the straight end of the frame and kept the angled end, the way it was, I cut a piece of pattern paper to use as the background and adhered the frame on top. 

I colored the florals using Distress Inks – Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo, and a bit of Antique Linen. 

Using my shaping tool, as well as the groove tool and my fingers, I shaped these to resemble Hibiscus. When we are in Florida, the Hibiscus are always in full bloom and they look so beautiful, so my idea came from that. 

Thank you for dropping by today and I hope I have inspired you to give the new Florals Volume 4 a try.

Birdhouse Florals

March 16, 2022

Hi friends, welcome back. It is Karan Gerber here. Today I am sharing a card using florals 5 and the Birdhouse die from Joset. 

I created Daisies from Florals 5 using a groove tool to add dimension to the petals. I colored using Sunflower Archival ink and used prills in the center (they are called Rippit).

The birdhouse is perfect for a card, and with snow still on the ground in my area I felt adding a bit of snow paste to the top of the house fit perfectly. To add some detail to the background I set the birdhouse on a die cut using the Stitched Circles. I love adding layers using the stitched dies.

I thought the Floral Burst background set off the daisies and love how that gold mirri mimic my handmade daisies. Thank you for dropping by and until next time, Happy Scrapping!

Paper Flowers

Roses Are Red, Violets are Blue…..

March 4, 2022

Hi Everyone, It’s Els here and my turn to give you some inspiration. This time I made a card you can use for many occasion, like Birthday, Thank you, Mother’s day etc…… Below you find the step for step instructions. Have fun creating this card!

  • Take the middle and the small flower die from the Florals 4 and cut them both 9 times , use the small leaf from the Florals 13 set and cut 10, also cut 10 small flowers from the Florals 10 set use the Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Take the smallest flower from florals 4 and cut of 1 petal
  • Color the flowers as shown on the photo you can also give them other colors, I used a fineliner to make the black lines.
  • Spray the flowers on the front with water, not too wet and shape them then turn them over and press in the center.
  • Glue the small one on top of the big flower
  • Varnish the flowers with 3D Lacqer when dry put a yellow nuvodrop in the center.
  • Shape the leaves and the tiny flower and put stamens in the flower
  • Make a nice arrangement on any die you have
  • Glue the whole arrangement on a 6 x 6 card in the color that fits with you flowers.
  • As you can see on the first picture, I also made a broche. I used 1 pansy, 2 leaves and 2 tiny flowers from my leftovers. For extra green I cut 1x the fern die and cut it apart.
  • I used the 3D Lacquer on the whole broche.
  • I hope I gave you some inspiration to make a card like this and also for the broche you can do that with every flower you have.

Till next time!

Els

Gift Box with Handmade Roses

March 3, 2022

Hello friends and welcome! It is Karan Gerber here to share a gift box i created and i have adorned the cover with Handmade Roses using Florals 8.

Cutting out 8 sets of florals 8 and plenty of leaves, i set about coloring these with Tea Roe Archival Ink and Magenta Hue Archival Ink. 

the inside of the box, i created a card, using the cutout from the top of the box which is Sidekick Essentials 5. I matted the cut out in gold mirror paper long with the sentiment from the paper collection i used.

The top of the box, i covered with Acetate and used the Floral Burst Background to do a die cut in Gold Mirri and I love how this turned out, it looks so elegant.  

I hope you enjoyed my project today and until next time

Happy Birthday Card

February 16, 2022

 Hello Friends and welcome back. It is Karan Gerber hosting the blog today and I am sharing a card using Florals 12 to create some beautiful Lilies. Lilies remind me of spring and with the thought of warmer weather soon to come, i wanted to create some cheery florals. 


I cut 6 large, 6 medium and four small from florals 12 and colored them with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. I cut the leaves from Florals 1, and colored them with Bundled Sage. 



I also cut out three hearts from the Stitched Hearts and lightly inked the edges. I cut two sets of the Blooming Branches and cut them apart tucking them in around my florals to add more dimension.

The smaller florals i also colored with Bundled Sage, layering them together and using yellow stamens in the centers. 


Using Stamens from Dress My Craft i used them in the center, using my hot glue gun to secure them. To get that beautiful frosted look i used Diamond Dust along with Rock Candy Crackle, which dreis clear and allows the frost to shine through.

I hope you like my card and my take on lilies using Florals 12, i hope you give these florals a try. 
Looking forward to seeing you again, until next time, Happy Scrapping!

You Have my Heart

February 3, 2022

Hello Friends, welcome back, it is Karan Gerber on the blog today to share my first project for February. With Valentines coming soon, I had an idea to create a mini album from the Heart Shaped Dies.

I used Florals 4 on the Cover, coloring them with Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. Here are some details of the mini album I created.

I created a shaker box on the front cover using acetate under that fist paper layer and then adding two layers of foam tape. The side of it actually looks like one of those heart shaped candy boxes you see. 

Inside front cover and first page. Here I used Planner Filmstrip (1656) and die cut the smaller frames from that set and die cut a heart. The sentiments are from the paper pack. 
To get the pages to work in an album, I die cut the page connector from Sidekick Essentials 16 and attached it to the back of each of the pages. 

For page 2 and 3 I used Planner Essentials 3 and cut down the photo frame to suit the size of the page. The tag is from Planner Essentials 4 which I basically used as an insert here.

Page 3 and reverse of the tag. Here I used Planner Essentials 2 adding some rubons to the slide in die for the tags.

For page 4 and 5 I used the Planner Film Strip.

Page 6 and 7 which are the last pages of this cute little mini album. I used some heart die cuts, the filmstrip as well as the die cut “You” from Sidekick Essentials 2.

It was a fun little project to do, and I hope you give these heart dies a try to create your own little mini album. 

Happy Valentines & Happy Scrapping!

Until Next time!

Welcome to your new home

February 1, 2022

Hello everyone, Els Schutte here with my first blog post on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. I’m very excited to show you the card I made for today’s post. It’s a card that would be perfect for someone who just moved into their new home of with a slight modification just a card for any occasion. Let’s get started!

Welcome to your new home card

Cut Lacy Leaves, Florals 4, Ferns, and the Berry Branch out of the Soft Finish Cardstock, then colour them in soft pink and green Inks. Shape the flowers and leaves and glue the flowers together. Put some stamens in the centre and put laquer on the big knobs and pearl drops on the small Berry branch.

Cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold in half, this is your base card. Cut another piece of the same cardstock of 8 1/4 x 4 and put this piece on 3D foam blocks and place on top of your card. Cut the door with the die from the phone Booth set, use the parts from the window as bricks. Start with placing the leaves.

Place the flowers
Place some big knops
Ad some leaves

Cut the berry Branch apart and use them on different spots in the cluster. Use some green Ink to make a shadow on the bricks. Ad a string of pearls and bow and your card is done.

I Hope you will give this card a try, it’s a nice gift if you get new neighbours or someone gets a new Home.

Shadow Box Lighthouse

January 3, 2022

 Hello Friends and welcome back! its Karan here for my first post for 2022. Im excited to be back as Brand Ambassador and I am sharing another card today

I designed this using florals 1 for the flowers

,

I die cut the Village Edges twice. Using one on the inside of the box, attached to the card base, and one to the frame of the box, 

The front of the shadow box has acetate on it, so i thought the birds would look like they were really flying.

Being on the lake here in Northern Ontario, i love that Lighthouse and felt it would be perfect to create a scene on my card. This is designed on the Beached paper from 49 and Market. 

This is a perfect card for loved ones who might have purchased a cottage or like we have done, retired to the lake.

I hope you enjoy my first project for 2022 and I look forward to inspiring you this year.

Snow Globe Shaker Card

December 22, 2021

Hi Friends and welcome to my last blog post for the year for Elizabeth Craft Designs. It was a little over a year ago when I first began my journey with Elizabeth Crafts. Creating with their florals and A5 Planner dies this past year has been so much fun. I just couldn’t close out my year without sharing one final Christmas Card. 

At this point, I am not sure what 2022 will bring with Elizabeth Craft Designs, but I hope you love my final project. 

The florals were designed using Florals 12. I know I have shared a lot of projects with these florals but Christmas to me isn’t just a day, it isn’t just a month, it’s a season. And this Season my family and I have much to be thankful for!  So with Christmas season upon us, I set out to create one last Christmas Card for 2021.

Here on St Joseph Island, we see deer all the time. They are almost sighted each day we head out for errands. I couldn’t resist creating a shaker card with Joset’s Snow Globe and those deer and trees from the Winter Scenery Set.  

To begin with, I cut out the globe on pattern paper and on craft cardstock and than traced it out on acetate so I have a full size piece for the front of the globe. I fussy cut out foam tape and taped the back trim of the die to create a shaker card. I placed glitter on the inside of the shaker.

I cut four of the trees from the Winter Scenery Die Set and cut thin strips of foam tape to adhere to the back of the trees to add some dimension to the globe. I adhered the deer from the Snow Globe Sidekick Set to the front. I just love how this looks, it creates an awesome winter scene in that globe doesn’t it? 

Die cutting out 6 large and 6 medium florals along with 6 leaves I colored and shaped them (if you are a member of the Elizabeth Crafts family Group on Facebook, I did a Live on Friday, Dec 17th and you can see just how I shaped and created those gorgeous florals here: Live Facebook with Karan. If you are not a member, be sure to become one so you can view the replay)

So getting back to my card, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments set using White Embossing Powder and attached that to the bottom of the card. 

My final step was to add snow paste and I thought some Art Stones would be a nice touch and look like snow balls around the florals. 

Thank you for following me along this year with my craft shares for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Have yourself a Merry Christmas and I am praying that 2022 will see us all back to normal. Blessings for a bright, prosperous and Healthy 2022!

Yes it was snowing when I took this photo, so fitting for the style of my card Happy Scrapping and I hope to be sharing more with you in 2022!
