    Hi there. I know a young woman who loves to journal and I was thinking of getting her some supplies. What do you suggest to start? I do card making so understand what a card maker or scrapbooked needs but don’t know what to buy for a journal.

    Thanks for any help

    Hello, ELS….

    First of all I LOVE all of your products! I pick up something different every time I see you at the Stamp Shows, in Ohio,
    and Michigan!!
    I just purchased your 1401 Christmas Tree, and the 1408 Reindeer die. When I was at the last stamp show you had a beautiful
    card using these two dies. Wanting to start my Christmas cards early…I would love to make the one that you showed on the Christmas Tree tutorial, with the pop-up trees. By chance do you have directions for that particular card? I have tried to find the ‘project sheet’ for just the Christmas Tree card that you videoed. Couldn’t find that…

    When you have time, could you please help me out?

    Thank You so much for your time…and all your beautiful ideas!

    And for some extremely odd reason – this contact post ALWAYS works ie i cannot post to the blog post today but CAN to this contact post it is very very very strange!!!
    One last thing it seems to go in phases that heaps of people have problems writing on the blog then it works

      PS for anyone reading this THIS post ALWAYS seems to work LOL but the challenge post is the one that does NOT work so its not the same and its not fixed because im commenting here!

    You all made awesome cards, funny, romantic, modern, love them all!

  • Reply Erin Mckenzie-christensen December 14, 2017 at 1:58 am

    Hi to anyone having issues i have in the past had the same issues the thing that fixed it for me after multiple comments and emails was to clear the cache
    I no computer whiz and have no idea how to do this on a mobile phone or tablet but on a computer (Windows 10) i use a program called CCleaner it is free u download and install the program and it clears the cache be aware it will delete whatever is ticked (u cam choose) eg history for your browser the cache recycle bin etc and u can also do a clean and then check it and then delete it.

    Please know im not a computer person just that when i did that it resolved this issue i had it for months!!

    So if it doesn’t work i have no idea but maybe worth a go oh and just a warning if you have items saved in a shopping cart online buy the stuff before u use ccleaner cos it may delete whats in the cart this also happened to me!!!

    Hope this may help

However, with the order that I just placed on your site, I tried o purchase the 1095 Flourish Gift Frame. But when I checked out, I was informed that this product is “out of stock”. This is the product I REALLY wanted and can’t find it offered anywhere else. Is it going to be available some time in the future or is it no longer being manufactured? Believe me, I have looked on every site I can think of that sells your products including Amazon, Overstock and eBay and it simply isn’t available anywhere else.

    Please let me know if you do happen to find one in stock there that I can buy, been used.

    Hi, sorry to use this forum but couldn’t figure out how to reply to the post for the gift card.

    What I make for Christmas and birthdays is very fitting and extravagant cards appropriate to the occasion. We RV in the winter so I generally make cards for Halloween and Christmas for everyone and then special cards for birthdays. I usually add a gift card so find an unusually way to present the gift card within my card. I find it to be fun and challenging to come up with a card that is specific to each person as opposed to giving the same card to everyone.

    After 10 years I got back into card making. Soooooo much has changed. I saw Else work but was intimidated until I got back into the groove. I now what to know how to use the double sided adhesive paper, the stickers with glitter, the shimmer sheets and more but I cannot find the basic tutorial. They all assume you know how to sand a card or use the adhesive paper. I need to start from the basics to get a good foundation. I love Elle’s work a well as Josey. Please help. I have sent several requests to no avail.

    Hi Els and everyone I actually have a question about your blog.

    I love receiving and following all your blog posts as it gives me a lot of ideas as to what I can do with all your products. However today I was looking at the archives/tags for older posts and I have noticed that the posts from about april 2015 no longer have any pictures at all. Is there a reason for this? Do you take them down? its just that without the pictures the instructions are not enough for me anyways!
    Is there a way to view the older posts?

    Hi. I live near Calgary, Alberta, Canada and have been wondering where to get the Beacon Kids glue that is suggested for Susan’s Garden dies. Is there anything else that might work instead? The little bit I did (using the hollyhock die) with other glue didn’t work as well, as it took too long for the glue to dry. I assume that I need a glue that sticks together quickly so that the little pieces don’t come off when you place the next piece on. Any comments, suggestions?

    • Reply Elizabeth Craft Designs September 20, 2016 at 8:46 am

      Helle Rhea, try Paper Pastimes in Calgary. They are located on Fairmount Dr. SE. You can find them online. I would give them a call first to see if they carry the glue. However it is a lovely store to visit as well even if they don’t have the glue. Regards, the ECD team

    Hello Jo Ann Disalvo. You can transfer the leftover pieces with transfer sheet. You can watch this technique in the following YouTube video. You don’t have to waste anything! 🙂

    I bought the cupcake peel off stickers and love them. I know this is probably a silly question, but what do you do with the part that is left on the sheet?

      Hello Jamie, Thank you for your question. The best ways to store dies is flat. They sell special boxes that have magnetic plates where you can stick your dies to. Some people also use plastic envelopes.

      Hello Irene,

      Thank you for your question.

      We do not sell the glue but perhaps your local craft store might sell it. I know that Karen has 2 favorite glues which are the 20 gauge Fineline bottles from Scotch (Quick Dry Adhesive) and Helmar (Professional Acid Free glue).

      Please let me know wit there is anything else I can help you with.

      Hello Kelley, Thank you for your question. There are dies that cut the stand up helper. We have 2 sets of image stand up helpers (Stand Up Helpers Set 1 and 2 – #792 and #930 in our collection) and then we also have the Word Stand Up Helpers dies that we just released. The following You Tube Video by Els will show you how they work. The word stand up helpers will work the same way.

There is a kind of double image on it. Can you give any details about it? Was there a video made back in Dec. 2011 for it? It’s just absolutely gorgeous!!

    Kathy, sorry, I never had that problem. It should always come off from the backing because the backings are both non stick. The side that you can not get off is the brown backing?

  • Reply Kathy March 26, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    Els, I am having trouble with the sookwang tape. I have had this tape a couple of years, could that be the problem? I can get the side that says sookwang off to show the sticky part, but I CANNOT get the other side off. Any suggestions?

  • Reply Amanda March 26, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    Hello Els,
    You recently took us through classes at Spreyton in Tasmania. I so enjoyed your demos. I have just started to play with my shimmer sheets – Black Iris to try your transfer technique. I have had no end of trouble and have not had any luck with transferring. First I did it on the actual adhesive and I couldn’t get the transfer sheet off as the adhesive didn’t stay on it’s backing, then finally got it off but no transfer on the adhesive.

    I then tried to put the adhesive (your double sided adhesive sheets) on to white paper but again, when I had adhered the embossed shimmer sheetz to the adhesive now stationed on the white paper, when I tried to pull away the shimmer sheetz after burnishing with a brayer, it pulled off the adhesive and paper with it.

    What am I doing wrong?

    • Reply Els van de Burgt April 4, 2014 at 12:33 pm

      Amanda, Joset and myself had a great time in Tasmania! About the question. You need to put the tape on card stock first. 99% Of everything I do with the tape I do stick it to white card stock first.
      All the Iris Shimmer Sheetz leave behind the color that they are except for the black. The black leaves behind a white coating so you don’t see it that well but then when you sprinkle colored glitter or even the Diamond you will see the design. You can only take of the coat one time so you can only use a piece one time on one side and one time on the other side. Let me know if this helps.
