Halloween Turkey

September 22, 2021

Hii everyone,

It’s me Lisanne again. This time I show a little tag which I made with the new Happy Harvest. It is absolutely a great collection!

I started with some Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire ink at the top of the tag. If you spray some water at the ink, the ink respons and give some beautiful background.

Than I made the grass line and the fench. Behind the fence are some pumpkins (Hay Ride, 1909). Love to colour this with some beautiful orange Distress Ink with a little bit of brown and green. Oh and than the crows at the pumpkins. I love that! The crows are from the Scarecrow (1907).

Now I can make the eye cather with the Turkey (1905). You can make the Turkey just normal and adhere it together with glue. But I want some dimension at this tag, so I but some foam pads between the feathers. In this die there is one feather. But if you trim this of in different layers across the lines, you can make these dimension into it.

Hopefully you like this small blogpost about this small tag. I’ve had a lot of fun making this tag.

Thankyou for visiting! See you soon!

December Day by Day

September 16, 2021

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.

Summery Pages in my Nature Planner

September 2, 2021
Hello, it’s Annette Green today with some bright and cheery Summery plages in my Nature Planner. You may recall my Facebook Live I did for Elizabeth Craft Designs back in July where I showed how to create watercolored backgrounds using dies as stencils. If you missed it, you can view it here on the ECD YouTube channel. Today’s post includes a new video where I add photos to those pages and share some ideas and techniques.

My Nature Planner is a Sidekick size, so I’ve used mostly Sidekick dies as I mention in the video. The complete list is below with links to all products I’ve used.

Using the watercolors (yes, they’re back in stock!) allow you to customize your die-cut pieces and backgrounds perfectly to coordinate with your photos. I’ve used the Soft Finish White Cardstock for all of mine, which watercolors work very nicely on.

The Florals 13 die-set was perfect for these tropical, summery flowers on my pages as well. I love mixing and matching all the ECD dies into my projects.

I hope you take a moment to watch the video and follow along as I make up these pages. Thanks for stopping by today!

You’re so cute!

August 28, 2021

Today I made this cute whale that I combined with the lovely papers from Modacrap. I love the paperpads. They are so cute and colorfull. And collerfull is what I love!

For this card I used a slimline die. This die is from the new Planner Essentials set 41 – Rounded Corners Page. At first take this part of the die and your basepaper. In this case I took the paper with the whales in blue and red. The frame is also from the same set. The frame I made only in the soft finish cardstock because the background is already so colorfull.

On the back of the frame you can make two squares in different colors. For these squares I used papers with a bit of a calmer print as I’m planning to add the whale on one squares and a text on the other.

Than I took some brown cardstock on the back of my base slimline. I added some jute twine between the background paper and my cardstock. I left the jute a bit longer than my background so it would stick out on both end. You can make the frame stick out on the right side as well for a playful effect.

And then comes my favorite part of the card! A cute die from the collection of Joset. This time I choose the whale. He is so cute and matches so pretty with the paper. The whale I collered with Distress Ink. I used weathered wood for his body, stormy sky for the water splashes and fired brick for the mouth of the whale. I adhered the whale to the left square.

On the right side I made the word whale with the letter dies blackboard alphabet. This is one of my favorite dies. You can combine it with so much dies on so many creations.

Finally I added some decoration. In the corner a steering wheel and lifebuoy. These are parts from the Whale and the Octopus sets. On the right side of the frame are two holes, here I added some jute twine. It mached with the colors of the card.

I had fun creating this card and hopefully I inspired you to make your own version!

Sidekick planner page

August 21, 2021

Due to circumstances I have not worked much in my Sidekick planner lately.

But he is so cute that little one! And…..there are beautiful new Sidekick planners available in very nice colors and prints!

So, hop on with it!

On the left I used the new stamp set, actually this one is from the Planner Essentials collection. I cut off day 6 and 7 and made it a planner for the weekdays only. On the right I have room for the weekend days.

I still have to fill in the page. For this planner I don’t use photos, it’s purely an overview of the things I do.

I stamped on regular printer paper and edited it a bit with Distress ink so it blends in a bit more with the background.

That cute girl is from one of Esther’s new stamp sets, so sweet. I just stamped on kraft paper and cut it out. The bee is also from that set.

On the right I made a pocket and put a card in it. I can write the weekend things on it or stick a very small photo.

Again such a sweet girl, from another new set of Esther.

The pages further dressed up with what, yes, what do you call that?

It is a new die from a set for the Planner Essentials. I tore off pieces there and incorporated them both on the left and right of the page.

The page on the right is embossed paper, I created that with a 3D embossing die from Ellison/sizzix.

I Love You Tag

August 18, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my I Love You Tag.

To create my tag, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as dies from the Planner Essentials Collection and stamps from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.

Step One. Choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. From the Planner Essentials 30 – Wave Pocket Die, you’ll need the medium tag. Die cut the tag out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut the 2 1/2″ Stitched Circle from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of kraft cardstock. From the Build Your Own Sentiments Stamp Set, you’ll need the heart and I love You. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink the I love you sentiment and stamp on the right hand side of the circle as desired. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the heart and stamp below the I love you sentiment. Ink the edges of the circle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the Florals 10 die, you’ll need the large, medium and small flowers. Die cut the large flower once, the medium flower three times and the small flower three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Wilted Violet Distress Ink over the entire surface of each flower.

Step Four. Die cut both leaves three times each out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of each leaf. Shape the leaves as desired.

Step Five. Die cut one of the ferns from the Ferns die twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of both ferns. Trim the ferns down to your desired length.

Step Six. Foam square the circle 3/4″ from the left and 5/8″ from the bottom of the tag.

Step Seven. Adhere a fern and two leaves in the top left side of the tag. Adhere two leaves in the middle left side of the tag. Adhere the remaining fern and two leaves in bottom left side of the tag.

Step Eight. Adhere a small and medium flower together. Repeat this step for a second flower. Adhere the remaining flowers together. Add a black enamel dot in the middle of each flower. Adhere the two medium/small flowers to the bottom left and top left sides of the circle. Adhere the large flower in amongst the other two flowers as desired.

Step Nine. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the top of the tag.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my I Love You Tag at home.

Autumn 2021

August 14, 2021

Hi Everyone, Lisanne here sharing a new project with you today. It might be a little early but for today’s project I created an Autumn/ Halloween page for in my Sidekick planner. This page was so much fun to create. I used a combianation of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designsc under which the cute frog die from Joset’s collection. Let me show you how I created my page.

I sed the Sidekick Essentials 1 for the front page. This is a page with a little tab. On top of this page I adhered the Scallop page (Sidekick Essentials 12). The scallop page is made of the Worn Wood paper. I colored the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. This makes everything a little bit darker and spookier. Also the wood looks darker.

The next step is making the frog from the Storybook Collection. It is not a normal frog but a Halloween frog. I made the whole frog only his front legs are separate. I adhere this later. I also made the Pumpkin. The mouth from the frog is a dies from the Pumpkin. So you can also make a face in the Pumpkin.

First I made some leaves in different colors (green, brown and yellow). But I thought this was a bit small, so I made some mushrooms. Doesn’t they look cute? These are from the Forest Accessories.
Than I have to build my page up. I used a circle from the Sidekick Essentials 4. I used some purple Distress Ink so there will be a bit more colour. I also add some black so it will look a little bit spooky. In this photo above you can see how it looks without mushrooms. There is a lot of empty space.

But when you add the mushrooms you see a big differents. So that is how I fill some empty space. At the top of this page I adhere the word ‘Autumn’ with the Planner Essentials 23. These are beautiful small letters. At least I adhere some reinforcements.

My front page for this Autumn/ Halloween is made and ready to go! I’ll hope that you got inspired.

Thank you so much for visiting! See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne
