Happy Birthday

May 18, 2022

Good Morning Friends today i have a card to share with you designed using the Volume 4 Florals Release using Florals 15. 

Cutting the florals out using Soft finished cardstock, i colored them with saltwater Taffy Distress ink and the leaves with Peeled Paint

Shaping them using my shaping mat, i added some stamens to the center.  Then lightly added some snow paste on top to add more detail.

To create the dress i took a 5.75 x 12 inch piece of patterned paper and scored every 1/2 inch. Making sure to fold so that the ends were able to be folded inward. I free hand drew the top of the dress to create a tank style top and wrapped gold thread and colored seam binding to coordinate with the card. 

Thank you for dropping by today, I hope i have inspired you to create some dress cards of your own.

Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock

Hakuna Matata

May 5, 2022

Hii everyone! Here Lisanne and back with a new blogpost. This blogpost will be a short post but I realy like the result.

First I made the cute Giraffe with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. The little spots are diecut with Double Sided Adhesive at the back.

Then the background. I think it was time to use the Silk Microfine Glitter. For this card I want to create a jungle scene. So I used the Leaf background. For the base I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Double Sided Adhesive at the top so I can put Anitque Gold glitter at it.

The leaf is colored with Distress Ink.

The next step is adhere the Giraffe at the back ground. As you can see I made Jungle leaves at the top of the card. The left corner is realy empty so I decided to make the party lanterns, make a leave and a banner with Hakuna Matata at it.

So this was my short post about this card, but I hope you liked it. Thankyou for reading and hopefully see you soon.

Kind regards Lisanne

Mini Book with Desert Blooms

May 4, 2022

Good Morning friends, it is Karan Gerber here to share a mini book project with you. This is designed using Florals 17 as well as the Mini Book Die.

I die cut the florals and leaves out on the Soft Finish cardstock then colored front and back with rusty hinge distress ink and dabbed a bit of vintage photo on the tips to add some depth.

I shaped them with my stylus and mat and curled them into this shape, I hot glued them together and then added a bit more shape to them and inserted stamens. They remind me of small desert flowers I have seen in the Grand Canyon. 

To add a bit of detail to the box, i splattered watered down acrylic paint and some ancient gold coin paint. I decided to go on the center of the leaves with a thin paint brush with gold coin paint. 
I then added some art stones to add even more detail and dimension. 

I love how this little project turned out and hope you give this a try. 

Joset Designs Planner Essentials Soft Finish Cardstock


April 21, 2022

Hi all! I hope you doing all fine? I’m here with a new blogpost with the Time to travel collection and some dies from Joset and Ilse & Charlene.

I used the Porthole page for this card. I die-cut it two times and just used two holes.

I want to make a book of it. So I used the Journal Edges and a piece of kraft cardstock.

At this piece I used a stamp to pimp it. I think it looks realy grungy.

In the portholes I adhere the circle with the word ‘summer’ and the cute hippo with his safari hat. He is looking through the porthole.

At the back you see the back of the Hippo with his tail. I only adhere the circles from the porthole inside.

I stamped a sentiment in one of the portholes and add some washi tape.

This is my porthole card with the Hippo. I’ll hope you liked it.

Thankyou for reading!

Kind regards Lisanne

Good things

April 7, 2022

Hi all! Lisanne here, with a new blogpost for all of you.

Today I share a planner page with you with most of all new dies and stamps from the Time to Travel collection. I also used some older planner dies and dies from Joset. In this blogpost I will explain how I made this.

As base I used the Fruity Summer dies. I used blue paper from Reminiscene the book 4 and put some light yellow paper from Reminiscene the book 2 at the back. I love you combination of blue and yellow. I also adhere the reinforcements in black and kraft at the page.

Now is time to build up the page. First I made a little shaker element with Planner Essentials 42. I used paper from the Reminiscene book and put some acetate at the frame in front. I only put some double sided adhesive at the frame with some lemon shake material. Just put a reinforcement at it and a little piece of hemp cord.

I like to put things behind a tag or in this case my shaker label. So I die-cut and stamped the Film Frame, also a new dies en stamp. I also put a scallop round with a little stamping on it to. This stamp is also from the Time to Travel collection.

At the top I put two umbrella’s behind the shaker label.

The next step is making the crab with the shells. This is a dies from the sea collection from Joset. I coloured this with Distress Ink. At the list below you can see all the colours I used. At the end I put some glossy accents at the eyes from the crab.

At least I made the anchor at put the same colour hemp cord at it. And then the page is done.

I’ll hope you like the page and get some ideas.

Hope to see you soon!

Kinds regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Happy times

March 23, 2022

Hii all! Here I am again, Lisanne. Today I’m back with a new planner page with some old and new dies from the Planner Essentials. I combined it with the cute Monkey from Joset.

First I start with the base page. I used the Rounded page and some paper from Reminiscene the book 2. The edges are coloured with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. I die-cut the Film slide to use as frame for my page. Now I can make a stamp for my background in black.

For the next step I made some things with Distress Embossing Glaze. This will give a fantastic look.

So I gave the tab, the circle from the Sea Creatures, the rope and the helmet a rusty look. I coloured the Soft Finish Cardstock with Distress Oxide Ground Espresso, put it into Versamark and add some Distress Embossing Glaze Rustic Wilderness or Peeled Paint at it. Before I heat this I rub some powder off. Now I can heat everything and put some ink at the places who didn’t have the embossing powder. I love love love that look!

Only Distress Oxide Ground Espresso. The rope is from the rope border page.

The rope after heating the powder.

Here the rope with Distress Embossing Glaze and Distress Ink.

I adhere the circle to the page.

As you can see I adhered the Film slide to the page. I also used the sentiment ‘Special’ from the Slider page. It is a big word which I thought is perfect for this page.

I used the tentacles for this page. This gives it more of a sea look, just like the octopus is hiding behind the sentiment.

And then the cute monkey. The monkey is hanging in the rope with the helmet at his head. He is holding the sentiment. I like to build up this animals with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink.

I think this is everything what I can tell about this page. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Thank you for following along and see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne

Once upon a time box

March 9, 2022

Hi all! Lisanne here again with a new box project. For this box I used a lot of dies from the Storybook Collection from Joset. I also used some other dies from Joset.

First I made a list for you with all the paper you use for the box. I worked with centimeters so pay attention here. The box is 12 cm wide and 20 high.

  • Bottom 1x – Cardstock 12 x 12 cm
  • Sides 4x – Cardstock 21 cm high x 13 cm wide
  • Lid 1x – Cardstock 14,5 x 14,5 cm
  • Bottom 1x – Design Paper 11,5 x 11,5 cm
  • Sides 6x – Design Paper 19,5 cm high x 11,5 cm wide
  • Lid 1x – Design Paper 12 x 12 cm

First I started with the sides. We need to make score lines into the paper so we have a small strip to adhere the parts. I made 2 score lines from 1 cm at 2 sides.

In the corner we need to trim a little piece, from both corners 1 cm. Like the foto above. When we adhere all the parts everthing will be fit perfectly.

Than we have one piece off the sides. In this part we want a frame so we can watch into the box. We make a line from the sides 1 cm. For the sides with the scoreline you measure from the scoreline.

Behind the piece with the window we adhere some acetate. At the solid sides we adhere design paper 19,5 cm high x 11,5 cm wide. At the outside I used the Worn Wood paper. For the Inside I made an own background with some Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina.

Then we adhere the tree sides at the bottom. I used Distress Ink Vintage Photo for all the edges. I also adhere the front side with the window, but only at the bottom. Now we can make the bottom green with a piece of paper from 11,5 x 11,5 cm. I made it green with Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn.

Now we can build up the box. First I made a hill with the Slimeline Adventure Edges. I trimmed a piece of papier 14 cm wide and make at both sides a scoreline from 1 cm. It is all up to you to decide how high the hill must be. I want the Castle from the Storybook Collection up the hill. You can make everything like you want. I coloured the Castle with Distress Oxide Ink and put there some Distress Embossing glaze at. Behind the Castle you see the Cherry Blossom Branch with some crows.

The next stamp is making some grass just as making the hill. I only did the grass a little bit shorter. In the right you can see the tree. I made a little scoreline in the tree so it gives more dimension.

Now it is time to make the characters. I made the princess and the knight. Aren’t they cute?

Here a picture to see how the box looks like from above.

At least the front side. I made a line with grass and a lot of flowers. In the left corner is a branch with also a lot of flowers. And at least the cute butterfly.

I’ll hope you like this post and get some ideas with the Storybook Collection.

Thanks for watching and reading!

Kind regards Lisanne

Squirrel box

February 23, 2022

Hi everyone! I’m back with a new creation. This time I created a fun 3D box with squirrels. In the Netherlands we call this a “kijkdoos” and I believe in English it’s called a diorama if i’m correct. It’s something I use to make in school all the time and brings back so many fun memories. For this diorama I used the Squirrel and Daffodils dies from Joset’s latest release as well as some other dies from are from a previous release. Let me show you how I created this diorama!

First let’s create our box. I worked with centimeters, so keep this in mind if you’re used to inches.

Cut these pieces from strong paper:

  • 12,4 cm height x 25,8 cm wide (backside and frontside) 2 times
  • 13,4 cm height x 13,4 cm wide (tray)
  • 14,7 cm height x 14,7 cm wide (lid)

Take the ‘backside’ piece and make a crease in the papier at 1 cm and 13,4 cm.

Do this again with the piece for the frontside. Cut a piece of 10 cm x 10 cm out of both squares. So now you have a piece with two solid squares and a piece with 2 open squares. Behind the open squares I adhered some transparant sheet.

Now we need the piece of 13,4 cm x 13,4 cm to make a tray. Crease the paper from each side at 0,5 cm, and make a small tray.

At two sides on the outside you put some double sided adhesive and adhere the solid squares to it. Decorate these squares with some decorative paper on the inside. I used paper from the Reminiscence Book 2.

Now the best part, decorate the box. I started with the Folded Mushroom, so the box is a bit filled. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink for colouring. As you can see, I made a crease at the bottum.

The whole mushroom was a little bit to high and now I have a strip where I can add some double sided adhesive to adhere this at the box. I also made the cute Squirrel who looks behind his door.

Before I adhere the mushroom I made a chest with some nuts. The squirrel is sitting behind this chest to watch over his nuts.

At the left side there are some bushes, and who is in there with his tail?

When the mushroom is in his place, you get this view. Another squirrel came to sit down and eat his nut.

In front of the mushroom I made a path with stones. These stones are from the sea dies.

When the inside is done, you can adhere the frontside with the windows. Before I adhere the frontside I made a fence and some clouds on the inside. And then it was time to adhere the frontside to the box.

Now we can make the lid. I used a piece of papier 14,7 cm x 14,7 cm and created a crease at 1 cm from each side.

Adhere some decorative paper on top and the backside and the box is almost ready.

The last thing I did was making some daffodils and adhered these at the left en right side of the box.The photo above is made with the lid at the box. The pictures below is made without the lid so there is more light.

Hopefully you liked this post and got inspired. If you make this box, I would love to see your creation in the Elizabeth Craft Design family group.

Thank you for reading and see you soon!

Greetings Lisanne

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.

Sunny days

January 26, 2022

Hi all! It is my turn to give you some inspiration. This time I made a planner page with the Retro Bus Kit and some dies from Joset. A lot of fun products are coming. You have probably all seen the fabulous Retro Bus Kit from Esther, it is just wow!! I’ve included a lot of pictures in the blog post as I was so happy with how the page turned out 😉 So let’s start!

I started with with making a page with Planner Essentials dies 1. I also used the Wave Pocket dies. These 2 dies are my base. I cut off the short part of the Wave Pocket. I didn’t throw this part away, but kept it. I will use this later. I made a pocket from the largest part so I can put something in there.

In this pocket I added 2 simple tags from the Reminiscene books.

I also made a label with paper from Esther’s Badass shop and some cute elements from the Planner Essntials and Retro Bus kit. Oh and the stamp for writing some notes.

Now I need the shortest part from the wave pocket. I made the Retro Bus and adhered this to the wave pocket.

I just love the small elements with the lights, flowers and wheels. For this bus I used some paper from the Reminiscence the book, metallic paper and Soft Finish Cardstock. You can make it how you want.

At the back I added a tent using dies from Joset. I thought it would be perfect for this theme.

And the suitcase and bag are perfect for this page. The suitcase is a die from the Retro Bus. The bag is from the Camping accessories.

At the page with the pocket I added the tree and farmer in safari theme. I really like to combine everything together.

And I just like the clothes from the farmer. The farmer is standing at the sentiment ‘explore’.

This picture is how you see the page when it’s closed.

And this is when the page is open.

I’m very happy with it. I hope you like this post as much as I do. Thank you so much for reading!

Kind regards
