Book of me

December 27, 2021

Hii everyone! Hopefully you all doing fine.

I’m here again (Lisanne) with a new blogpost for you. It is just a small project but a realy fun project. I made a little book with the Folded Arrow Insert (1870).

First I started with making a lot of different arrows so I have a little book already. Now I can decorate these little pages. In this blogpost I will tell about my front page. The paper is from Reminiscene 2. For the edge I used Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

As you can see I started with a base and a smaller arrow with the sentiment ‘love this’. Before I adhere this part down I made a tab with a stamp ‘Book of me’. It is stamp from CS231. I will use this book for myself with positive things.

The next step is making the eye cather of this page. I tore some pink paper and adhere a picture frame at it with an eyelet. Behind the torn paper I put some grid from Planner Essentials 40.

Above the picture frame I adhere the beautiful girl in her lovely dress with bow.

At least I adhere the Reinforcements and the bookrings.

It is a short post this time but hopefully you liked it. Thankyou so much for reading!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

December To Remember Pocket

December 16, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my December To Remember Pocket

To create my December To Remember Pocket, I’ve used a variety of dies and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my pocket at home.

Step One. Choose a piece of Christmas patterned paper. From the Planner Essentials 30 – Wave Pocket Die, die cut the wave pocket from the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the pocket using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. From the Planner Essentials – Planner Pocket 2 die, die cut the circle wreath once out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three. Die cut the deer from the Planner Essentials 13 – Xmas Winter Insert out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the entire surface of the deer. Ink the edges of the deer using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Planner Essentials 13 – Xmas Winter Insert, die cut the trees out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a waterbrush and the Watercolor Palette, colour the trees as desired. Once the trees have dried, ink the edges of the trees using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials – Reinforcement Pack 2, die cut two snowflake reinforcements out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Six. Die cut the tab from the Planner Essentials 44 – Folded Arrow Insert Die out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the tab using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. From the December Moments Stamp Set, you’ll need the December and To Remember labels. Apply Lucky Clover Distress Ink to the December label and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the To Remember label and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the two labels out. Ink the edges of both labels using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Adhere the tab to the right side of the pocket before adhering. Adhere the sides of the bottom piece to create the pocket.

Step Nine. Adhere the snowflake reinforcements overtop of the two holes at the bottom of the pocket.

Step Ten. Adhere the tree line to the top portion of the pocket as desired.

Step Eleven. Adhere the circle wreath to the bottom right side of the pocket. Foam square the deer to the middle of the circle wreath.

Step Twelve. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the December To Remember labels to the left of the deer as desired.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my December To Remember Pocket at home.

Gratitude Card

October 8, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Gratitude Card.

To create my Gratitude Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from Joset Designs and stamps from the Beautiful Blooms Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 4″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of both rectangles. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose one piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned paper. Distress the edge of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Choose another piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of the patterned paper. Cut the fishtail down to 3″. Apply Ground Espresso Distress Ink to the Gratitude word from the Beautiful Blooms – Gratitude stamp set. Stamp onto the fishtail. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Gratitude Stamp Set, you’ll need the rose bunch and the single rose. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the rose bunch and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the single rose and stamp onto the same piece of cardstock. Reapply ink to the single rose and stamp again on the same piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the rose bunch and the two single roses in using a waterbrush and the Watercolour Palette. Once the flowers have dried, fussy cut the flowers out. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Six. Adhere the fishtail 1 7/8″ from the bottom and 1 1/4″ from the left of the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the single roses around the fishtail as desired.

Step Seven. Foam square the rose bunch so that it sits slightly on the adhered single roses.

Step Eight. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Celebrate Card with New Flower Stamps

September 13, 2021
Hello again, Annette Green back again this month with a simple and elegant anniversary card I created for my parents who celebrated their 60th recently. Here’s how I made it…
First, I stamped some images from the Gratitude stamp set onto watercolor cardstock with archival black ink. Then I used my ECD watercolors to color them. The design of the images has stippled dots which are perfect little hints where the deepest shadows are, so I painted those areas a little darker.

Next, I used the compatible dies (coming soon!) to cut them out. This is such a great time saver!
After cutting a pretty paper for the front of my card, I selected a stencil that had a small, pretty repeating pattern. (Stencil to come soon too!)
Next, I spread some clear texture paste through the stencil onto my pattern paper. I gently lifted the stencil away and set it aside to dry completely.
You can see how this adds lovely texture and dimension to the paper once dry.
Onto some ivory cardstock, I stamped Celebrate and drew in the black drop shadow with a marker, then added some ink around the edges and some tiny dots in a compatible green color.
My ivory card base is 5″ x 7″. I layered some black paper first, then the pattern paper, and added a die-cut doily.
Next, I started layering elements flat onto the card.
To finish off the front, I added the final die-cut flower piece with dimensional foam tape to pop it up.
A little bit of stamping on the inside and the card is done! Super simple, but very elegant. Thanks for visiting today. Have a great day!

A Way With Words Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Silk Microfine Glitter Watercolor Palette

Christmas Crafting During Summer

June 26, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I figured it is almost July, so why not started on my Christmas Cards. I pulled out a couple of Suzanne’s A Way With Words holiday dies and my Silk Microfine Glitter to play with and figured it was summer so I might as well play with a pink and teal color scheme.

Step One: On a piece Watercolor Paper, randomly paint pink and teal watercolors from the Watercolor Palette. Let dry.

Step Two: Splatter the watercolor paper with a heavy pink and teal watercolor paint. Trim the paper to fit an A2 card frame and using a 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape adhere it to the card frame.

Step Three: Die cut both the A Way With Words Merry Christmas 3 die set and the A Way With Words Flourished Holly die set out of 8.5″x11″- 5 pack Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step Four: Peel the adhesive tape’s backing and adhere the holly back pieces and the Christmas die cut to the card frame.

Step Five: Using the Earth Glitter Palette Vintage Teal Silk Microfine Glitter, color the die cuts. ECD’s Brushes are perfect to wipe off excess glitter.

Step Six: Repeat step five with the holly berries back piece and the Merry die cut using Silk Microfine Glitter Bright Cranberry.

Step Seven: Finish the layers of Flourished Holly die cut by adding the holly outline over the bottom pieces.

Step Eight: Add Ice Teal from the Earth Glitter Palette to the holly outline.

While these color may not be traditional, I love how festive this holiday card turned out. Let us know in the comments below what non traditional colors you like to use on your holiday projects.

And don’t miss out! Suzanne’s Holiday Dies are priced to sell, so make sure you pick up yours before they are gone forever. Until then, happy crafting.

Step One. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. From the first patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle. Die cut a 3″ Stitched Indented Rectangle out of the second patterned paper. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 1/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle out of a piece of black cardstock.

Step Three. Die cut the Elegant Ornament out of a piece of black cardstock. Cut the ornament down to 3 1/2″.

Step Four. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim the fishtail down to 3″. From the Zen Sentiments stamp, you’ll need the live in the moment sentiment. Apply Detail Black Ink to the stamp and stamp on the right hand side of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Florals 5 die, die cut the leaf five times out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a waterbrush and Watercolours, colour the five leaves.

Step Six. From the Florals 5 die, die cut a extra large, three large, three medium and three small flowers out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a waterbrush and Watercolours, colour the ten flowers.

Step Seven. From the Florals 5 die, die cut the centres once out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need a total of three centres.

Step Eight. Adhere the 3 1/4″ rectangle to the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Foam square the 3″ rectangle to the 3 1/4″ rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the elegant ornament to the left hand side of the 3″ rectangle as desired. Adhere the 3/4″ fishtail 7/8″ from the bottom and 3/4″ from the left of the 3″ rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere a extra large, large, medium and small flower together. For the other two flowers, adhere a large, medium and small flower together. Adhere a centre to each flower. To finish the flowers, shape the flowers as desired.

Step Eleven. Adhere two leaves at the top left side of the ornament. Adhere two leaves in the bottom right side of the ornament. Adhere the remaining leaf to the middle left side of the ornament.

Step Twelve. Foam square the large flower to the middle left side of the ornament. Adhere the other two flowers as desired around the large flower.

Step Thirteen. To finish the wall hanging, punch two holes at the top of the wall hanging. Tie a piece of black twine through the two holes to create the hanger.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Live in the Moment Wall Hanging at home.
