Good morning! Laura here today to share my next layout I created for ECD! I really like to mix my papers from different collections as long as the color families are the same so for this layout I mixed some papers from the Mystical Winter paper pack, the Rusty Weathered and the Summer Art!
To create this layout: Step 1 – Trim one paper to 11×7 and distress the edges, distress the edges of a 12×12 sheet and cut a ‘V’ into the top right of both papers about 2 1/2 ” from the edge. Cut one more piece of paper large enough to be adhered behind the cut ‘V’ Step 2 – adhere all the papers together and then cover with clear gesso and allow to dry
Step 3 – using watered down paints paint circles randomly in various sizes and also splatter some paint
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my For A Special Someone Gift Box.
To create my gift box, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as stamps and dies from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift box at home.
Step One. Choose a piece of tropical themed patterned paper. Die cut the Pizza Box die from the Pizza Box Die set out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the box using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. From the Pizza Box die, die cut the scallop square out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. Choose a second piece of coordinating patterned paper. Die cut the stitched square from the Pizza Box Die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Choose a third and fourth piece of coordinating patterned paper. Make sure one of them is green. Die cut the stitched circle from the Pizza Box Die out of the green patterned paper. Die cut the smallest circle from the Pizza Box Die out the fourth patterned paper. Ink the edges of both circles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Die cut the Elegant Ornament out of a piece of kraft cardstock.
Step Six. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 3 1/4″. From the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 Stamp Set, you’ll need the For a Special and Someone words. Apply Detail Black Ink to both stamps and stamp onto the right hand side of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Seven. Choose one of the leaves from the Leaves & Branches die. Die cut the leaf three times out of the green patterned paper.
Step Eight. From the Florals 4 die, die cut the centres once out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut one of the buds from the same die twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Nine. From the Florals 4 die, die cut the large flower out once, the medium flower out three times and the small flower out three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Broken China Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flowers.
Step Ten. Assemble the pizza box.
Step Eleven. Foam square the scalloped square to the top of the box. Adhere the stitched square to the scallop square. Trim the elegant ornament down as desired. Adhere the elegant ornament to the stitched circle. Adhere the stitched circle 3/4″ from the right and 1/2″ from the bottom of the stitched square.
Step Twelve. Adhere the small circle to the middle of the elegant ornament. Adhere the fishtail 1″ from the left and 1″ from the bottom of the stitched square.
Step Thirteen. Shape the flowers. Adhere the flowers together. Make sure each flower has a centre adhered to the middle of the flowers.
Step Fourteen. Shape the leaves. In the top left side of the ornament, adhere a leaf and bud. Adhere a leaf in the middle left side of the ornament. Adhere the remaining leaf and bud to the bottom left side of the ornament.
Step Fifteen. Foam square the largest flower so that it sits slightly on the fishtail. Adhere the remaining two flowers as desired around the large flower.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my For A Special Someone Gift Box at home.
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.
Good morning everyone! Our family loves to go sledding in the winter – it is a great family outing! I found these photos of my husband doing a sneak attack on our son Cody and thought they were too funny to not scrapbook!
To create this layout: Step 1 – distress the edges of your background paper (I used Mystical Winter paper) Step 2 – mat your photos and distress the edges of photo mat. Adhere using cardboard or 3d adhesive
Step 3 – add a chipboard or paper border Step 4 – die cut 23 fitted hexagons then ink and distress the edges and adhere to paper
Good morning! Almost every winter we as a family go sledding and we have a great day!
To create this layout: Step 1 – cover the background paper with clear gesso (I used a paper from the Mystical Winter Collection) Step 2 – stamp the image from the Frosty Patterns at the top, bottom and side
Step 3 – use texture paste and a stencil from the Pattern Stencil Pack along the one side and allow to dry Step 4 – Die cut, ink and assemble 14 – 15 flowers (I used florals 1, 2, 3, 4,) Step 5 – die cut 2 cubic background out of coordinating cardstock. Highlight the word Winter by using snowflake paste or glitter Step 6 – die cut 2 Diagonal Stitched Fishtails
Step 7 – mat your photo and assemble the photo area as shown Step 8 – using some frayed cheese cloth run a piece from the top to the bottom on the one side and one from side to side in the middle
Karen here today sharing some FuN Christmas cards. I recently purchased this beautiful pack of blue and purple holiday paper and decided to challenge myself to create using *almost* every designer here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. The products are all so lovely, and I wanted to play with many of the styles.
This first card features a FuN font stamp from Sue Smith Creative Designs. This one is from the Snow Stamps, but there are many beautiful options. I added a snowflake from A Way with Words, Flourished Christmas Mini Dies and covered it with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive (before cutting) and added some Silver Silk Microfine Glitter. I used a Stitched Rounded Rectangle to cut the stamp out.
How pretty is that AMAZING new Washi tape from Ilse and Charlene (Artzy Scenery Washi Tape)!!? In this card, I diecut the ends of those rectangles using the Junk Journal Extras Dies. I also used the Florals 4 dies designed by Anita, the Joyful Wishes Sentiments Stamps, the Stitched Circles Dies and White Craft Drops.
Oh, how I do love a glitter covered Santa Claus (die set designed by Joset)! This one is covered with Speckled Indigo and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter (applied with the 101mm Double Sided Adhesive). His face is colored with E000, E00, R21 Copics and his feet and hands are colored with W7 Copic. The sentiment is again from the Joyful Wishes set.
That glitter is gorgeous! And serendipity, it matches my nail polish!
I just love the beautiful font dies from Suzanne Cannon in the A Way with Words collection. This one is Merry Christmas, Small Die. It is die cut with a Stitched Rounded Square Die. The card also uses the Fitted Fishtails dies.
And FINALLY, I used the adorable snowman from Planner Essentials 34 – Christmas Figures, designed by Esther Glas. He is so sweet and comes with the fun sleigh rides ticket (and many other dies). I also used the Stitched Circles dies on this card.
Well, I may have gone a bit overboard…but I just love all of these collections of dies. They are just so versatile and fun!
