Karen here today. I’ve been documenting the adventures that me and my guy have been having in a Sidekick journal. Sharing today a couple of recent adventures. I’ve created quite a few of these pages since we started dating seven months ago, and it’s already so fun to look back through the FuN!
A couple weeks ago, we flew to Vegas for a couple days. One of the outings we had while we were there was to see a Rod Stewart concert. Omigosh, he is SO good. The page base here is from the Sidekick Essentials 7 set. Those fun stitched letters are from the Planner Essentials 37 set, and the arrow is from the Planner Essentials 41 set. On the front here, I also also used reinforcements that are either in the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1 or 2 or were a fun surprise in another set. The “Amazing” at the top is from the Pieces of Life 3 – Quotes stamps.
This is the backside of the “Rod” page. The sentiment at the bottom is also from the Pieces of Life 3 stamp set. The “beautiful” flag is in the Sidekick Essentials 7 die set.
Next up was a FuN adventure we had to see our local professional basketball team. My guy works for a company who was able to get him front row seats. Wow, those basketball players are SO tall. And our team won! The page base here is from the Sidekick Essentials 2 set, and the “Remember This Day” frame is from the Planner Essentials 42 set. Adding that to a picture was so easy since I added 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before sticking it down. How fun! To add interest to the picture, I die cut a few stacking Stitched Rounded Squares and added some white dots around it. (Our team colors are purple and white!) The “ribbon” on the page was the wrist band to get onto the floor of the game.
I realized in creating my page that I had more pictures that I wanted to add than I had space. I decided to cut a square in half to add a small triangle corner pocket. (I edged it with more of the wristband…)
This was a fun way to add just a few more pictures. The pic in the middle was sitting in my seat (not zoomed in). What a fun adventure!
Thank you for checking out my journal pages today!
Craftily yours, Karen

Hello Friends and welcome to the Elizabeth Crafts Blog. It is Karan here sharing a card with you today. I wanted to share with you the versatility of the Art Journal Dies and showcase a couple of them on a card.
This is designed with Florals 11; Sealed Pocket, and Puzzle Page Die. I know, you know, how much i love that Stitched Fishtail for my sentiments and the Stitched Rectangle just to add an extra layer to my cards. The Hope Floral Stamps are fabulous to add some added detail and tuck in to match the florals i create, I loved coloring them with ink, or water color they add that perfect touch.
Above is my card it measures 5.5 x 7.5, a big over sized for envelopes, but you can always attach this to a gift bag, or create a hand made envelope using an envelope maker.
you can see the detail of the fishtail die, the Sealed Pocket and the gorgeous florals here. I colored the florals using Tea Rose Archival Ink, and Peeled Paint Distress Ink on the leaves.
here are a few detail shots for you.
and finally a side view. I hope you have enjoyed my card that i have shared with you today. Please share your creations with us over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook Group.
Step 3 – Die cut a Mandala and cut in half and a filmstrip from the Planner Filmstrip and ink or paint the edges Step 4 – Die cut 3 ferns from Ferns and ink or paint edges
Step 5 – Die cut the tab from the Planner Filmstrip and adhere to the photo and mat
Step 6 – Die Cut 2 small filmstrips from the Planner Essentials 24 and ink or paint edges Step 7 – Die cut 10 flowers using your favorite ECD floral Die. Ink, mold, and assemble those flowers. I used Florals 8, Florals 3, Florals 13, Florals 11 and Florals 2 Step 8 – Adhere everything as shown
Now for my second layout:
To create this layout: Step 1 – cover a 12×12 sheet of soft finish cardstock with white gesso and allow to dry or heat set Step 2 – using the Watercolor Palette paint along the tears and into the paper as light or dark as you like
Step 3 – tear two strips pf each side of the paper Step 4 – tear 4 pieces of paper long enough to be placed behind the tears of the cardstock. I used the Reminiscence The Book 2
Hello Friends and Welcome to the EC Designs Blog. It is Karan here to share a project with you.
I know it has been awhile since i have posted crafty projects with our big move almost behind us, i am slowly getting back to creating. My first project is using their floral stamps and beautiful floral dies creating a gorgeous mini album.
My first project back is Designed using Florals 13. Which i have shaped into Wild Roses. I matched the color of them with the paper i used in my project. Using a foam bud as my center.
Stamping the Blossom set out on Soft Petal Cardstock from Elizabeth Crafts with black archival ink, i decided to use my water brush and dab color from the same pad i used to create my florals. Salvaged Patina Distress Ink.
This project is designed as a mini folio on 49 and Market Accordion Flip Fold which comes with their new album as an insert. I thought it would make a perfect mini.
The inside i still want to decorate but my new scrap space is very much in boxes, but i promise i will add more photos when i get to my Planner dies.
I hope you have enjoyed my share with you today and I have inspired you to create your own beautiful mini albums.
Hello again everyone, Annette Green here today with some planner pages featuring some of the brand new dies and stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” video at the end of this post showing how I designed my pages and an idea for making room for more photos. My theme for this spread was all about a sculpture exhibit here in Greenville, SC.
I hope you take a moment to watch the video below to see more details on the cascading photo flaps. All products used are listed below:
Hello, it’s Annette Green here today with two spreads in my Nature Planner and a video walk-through of my process. Springtime in Greenville, SC is especially beautiful and since we are still new to the area, I’ve been in awe of this natural beauty and taking lots of photos.
Karen here today. As things are starting to open back up, I’m getting more and more excited about the possibility of travel, and I’m still enjoying adding to my “Places I’ve Been” Journal. Today, I used the BEAUTIFUL new Rainbow of Happiness Papers to create a couple journal pages of my trip to Florida in 2006.
I love this fun, bright colorful paper and thought it perfect to use for pictures of fun, bright and colorful theme parks we visited in Florida! For the page base, I used Planner Essentials 3. I die cut a Fitted Heart and placed it off to one side and used letters from Planner Essentials 23 to cut the word “Florida” after backing that piece of paper with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. (Makes assembly SO easy). I added a couple postage stamps and the little banners that were part of the Planner Essentials 3 set. Finally, I added a funny little sentiment using my Dymo labeler. And of course, no lay-out is done without some fun reinforcements. The small circles are part of the Reinforcement Variety Pack. The stars are part of a Planner Essentials that is no longer offered. The sentiment stamped into the tab is from the Family Stamps.
On the back of the page, I added a Giraffe (so cute) and used similar products to the front side. On our trip, we had the opportunity to pet and feed giraffes, and that adorable die marks that occasion perfectly. The “Wow Moment” stamp is from the Months Stamps.
Good morning! I am not a chronological scrapbooker. I scrapbook whatever I am inspired to, whenever I am inspired to, so I may scrapbook a photo from when our boys were little or from a couple of years ago when one of them graduated from high school. I find that I am much happier with my creations when I am inspired to create something. The beautiful colors from the Rusty Weather paper inspired me for this layout.
To create this layout: Step 1 – Trim our papers to the following sizes: 1 at 12″x12″, 1 at 12″x11″, 1 at 12″x7″ and 1 at 12″x6″ and a photo mat. Distress all edges.
Step 2 – Die cut, ink and assemble 10 flowers and 4 leaves. I used florals 6, 8, 9, 1, 2, and 4.
