Documenting Arizona

March 22, 2023

Karen here sharing a couple Planner Essentials pages from a recent trip my guy and I made with his dog on a road trip to Arizona. We got to see amazing fun sights like the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Winslow Arizona (where we stood on a corner). I created a couple pages – one for my Places I’ve Been album and another for Sadie’s album!

The page base for this first page (for Sadie’s album) is from Planner Essentials 39 and is Bellrose Pink paper. I also used some orange and pink from the Reminiscence Book 2 for highlights. The square elements, camera, and the flag are from the 39 set. I also added some letters using the Alphabet Tabs set. The hearts are in the Winter Bird set.

On the back, I used the Winter Bird as an element. It was SO cold on this trip that we even had to put Sadie on her leash.

This page is for my Places I’ve Been album and uses Planner Essentials 6 along with the Alphabet Tabs and dies from the File Folder Set 1. I used that fun picture in Sedona again, but this album is mine….and Sadie’s album is at my guy’s house 🙂 The stamp is from Destination Phrases.

On the back are more elements from the File Folder 1 set. The stamps are from the Moods set. Of course no page is complete without reinforcements from the variety packs.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Tic-Tac-and Toe-tally Fun

March 20, 2023

Hello Jackie here with todays post which is a super fun one today, the kids are going to love this one! I have created a pizza box tic-tac-toe board game complete with tiny playing pieces, the game is small enough to pack up and take on your travels keeping those small and big kids occupied!

Step One:

Start by die cutting and building the pizza box base then add a die cut scalloped edged layer to the lid.

Step Two:

Next build the burger. I have stacked up the bun part three times to add some dimension, add a yellow panel to the lid before attaching the burger along with all the words.

Step Three:

To create the playing board. Cut a white panel then trim four thin strips of red card, use a gridded cutting board to arrange and glue the strips into the criss cross shape. I have stacked up the white panel by three layers to create a sturdy board.

Step Four:

Layer the playing board on a yellow scalloped edge base, I have double stack the base for extra stability.

Step Five:

I have stacked the pieces with a lot of die cuts to make them thick and sturdy, you can choose to use as many layers as you like.

The playing board and pieces fit perfectly inside the box.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go at one of these game boxes. You could easily make this in a different theme by using other small die cuts.

Happy crafting – Jackie x

We All Scream Cone-Gratulations

February 27, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I have had this idea in my head ever since I first saw this Food Truck die being released. I was always a fan of ice cream cones.


Cut a piece of green cardstock using the second largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles die. Cut another piece of green cardstock using the stitched die from the Book Box die. Cut a piece of white cardstock using the smaller rectangle from the book box die. Cut a piece of white cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ ” x 5 1/2″. From the Food Truck Accessories, cut and color 2 ice cream scoops and 1 ice cream cone. I light to put post-it tape to the underside of the die cut to hold it in place while I color the objects.

Using the ice cream cone stamp from the stamp set, randomly stamp the ice cream cone on the piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock. My white cardstock is alcohol marker safe paper.

Color the ice cream cones using the same color combinations used for the die cut ice cream cone. Once the coloring is completed, die cut the piece using the second largest fitted rectangle die from the Fitted Rectangle die set

Stamp the sentiment from the stamp set to the die cut banner. I like to use the negative to create a template that I can place the banner in and stamp perfectly every time. This time save comes in handy when making multiple sentiment banners. Also, because the stamps are flexible, you can manipulate how the stamp adheres to your stamping platform to follow the curves of the banner.

Adhere the two smaller rectangles together and then adhere the ice cream cone to the layers.

Adhere the res of the layers together and then attach to the card base which is a standard A2 card base.

Fold the banner by following the score lines and adhere to the front of the card. I added a little bit of foam tape to the banner for additional dimension

Monster Love!

February 6, 2023

Hello everyone, Jackie here with today’s blog post.. I am still in a lovey-dovey valentines kind of mood so here is another valentines card for today’s inspiration, of course this can be changed for different occasions too.

Step One:

Start by ink swooshing across the front of a 5.25×5.25″ top folding card blank, here I used a distressed ink cube weathered wood.

Step Two:

Round the top right corner with a large corner punch then fix a medium sized die cut heart shape towards the centre top, use 3d foam pads for added height.

Step Three:

Make the biscuit. Die cut the half eaten biscuit shape twice, use a tiny heart die to cut out the centre of one biscuit piece. Glue the two together then fix a red die cut heart into the centre and ink around the edges with a light brown ink.

Step Four:

Die cut and build the monster then ink around the edges for texture. Attach the monster to the card front along with the biscuit.

Step Five:

Stamp out then die cut the sentiment, you will need to trim off the (‘re) from the word you’re. I have die cut a further two sentiment pieces in black card to help the sentiment stand out a bit more. Fix in place using more 3d foam pads.

Finish off by adding a couple more tiny die cut hearts, you could add some bling here if you wanted to.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go at my card – Happy crafting Jackie x

Let’s go to Mexico

February 4, 2023

Hi all!! Sylvia here with my very first post on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I am so happy to be a member of the talented design team at Elizabeth Craft Designs! You might know me from the ECD family page where I regularly show new characters by mixing and matching my dies. Today I’d like to show you how I build my characters, mixing and matching dies from various die sets from Joset’s collections.
We are creating a male and female Mexican character, so let’s get started. (Photo)

Step 1: Die cutting

Die cut all parts needed from Soft finish cardstock, using mrs. Claus for the Mexican girl (photo 2), some flowers for her hair from Adventure Edges 2 and parts of the farmer set, prince, gnomes, holiday stocking and the guitar from the safari accessories set for the male (Photo 3), see full supply list below. Note: die cut Mrs. Claus’ neck/body 2x (1 for the male, 1 for the female).

Step 2: Coloring

Use distress ink, oxide ink and markers to color all parts. (Photo). Use Tea dye Distress Ink for all skin tone body parts (head, neck, arms, hands, legs), Black soot oxide for hair, moustache, dress, pants, shoes, Lumberjack plaid for red trims, Mustard seed for sombrero rim and top and yellow trims, markers in yellow, red and orange for the poncho and orange trims. (Photo)

Step 3: Drawing

Draw a pattern on the poncho as shown in the photo using a black fineliner and use the markers for coloring. Cut off the rounded corners (use photo as reference). Draw the eyes, brows, nose and mouth with a fineliner, following the embossed lines. I gave the female an extra mole. (Photo)

Step 4: assemble the female

I wanted the dress to be off shoulder, so I glued it a bit lower than normal on the body. Her hands are behind her back. Decorate the dress to your liking with yellow, red and orange trims and add flowers to her hair. (Photo)

Step 5: assemble the male

First cut a slot in the rim of the sombrero, wide enough to fit the head (photo).

Glue the hair, moustache and neck on to the head. Slide the sombrero rim over the hair and glue it down. Stick the top on the sombrero. (Photo)

Stick the pants on the body and the shoes under the pants. Stick the poncho on top of the body. Stick one hand to a straight sleeve and the other hand to the bend sleeve. Glue the guitar in place, position both arms and stick them down. (Photo)

Now you have 2 Mexican characters to use on a card or in your planner. (Photos). Hope you enjoyed my tutorial. If you have any questions, please ask. Note: the characters on the card below are slightly different than the ones we created today (that’s because I created them a few months ago)

Happy crafting!!

Road Trip

January 25, 2023

Karen here! Back in December, my guy and I went on a very long road trip through California, Arizona and New Mexico along some parts of Route 66. We took his dog Sadie (who is surviving cancer and is such a sweetie). On the whole trip, I was envisioning using the Safari Jeep to make a Planner Essential page. I ended up doing both a Sidekick-sized page (for my “him and me” album) and a regular sized page (for Sadie’s album).

First up, the regular-sized Planner Essentials page for Sadie’s album. I used a Planner Essentials 4 for the base and added the Safari Jeep with a picture of us in the car. The jeep is cut with a combination of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and some brown and black cardstock. The jeep is so easy to put together as I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before die cutting for the pieces on top. The hearts down the side are from the Planner Essentials 40 set (and is die cut also with the 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. The huge arrow pointing to sweet Sadie is from the Library Pocket set. And I added a Fitted Circle die cut for interest.

On the back of the page, I added some cute pictures of her int he back of the car. The silver die cut on the side is also from the Planner Essentials 40 set. Car Vibes is cut with the stitched letters in the Planner Essentials 37 set. I added another couple Fitted Circles on top.

Next up, I adhered another jeep to the front of a large Stitched Circle die. I did a second pass on my die cutting machine with the Sidekick Essentials 5 (that lopped off the bottom of the circle and cut the holes). This page is for my Sidekick-sized Planner in which I keep memories of him and me.

On the back, I added a picture of our favorite stop (Sedona, AZ) and some journaling (along with another Fitted Circle. And for all these pages, of course, I added a fun reinforcements from one of the Reinforcement Variety Packs.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

I love you I love you I love you

January 23, 2023

Hello everyone, Jackie here. It’s my turn to bring you today’s inspiration and while love is still in the air I am sharing another love themed tutorial. As always you can use this design for a number of occasions.

Step One:

Start by creating a textured pattern onto a top folding A2 card blank. Use a small heart stencil and some textured paste keeping the background plain white.

Step Two:

Fix two indented rectangle dies together using some washi tape – this will die cut a frame. Die cut the frame twice into pink card then glue the two together before fixing to the card front.

Step Three:

Die cut the giraffe from white and black card as shown in the photo below. Ink the edges with yellow and pink ink. Switch out the giraffe spots for tiny hearts, I used the tiny heart from die set Mrs Claus 1991.

Die cut a handful of hearts then glue them randomly to the giraffe before trimming off any access. Add some shimmer to the heats, I have used a wink of stella pen but use whatever is in your stash.

Step Five:

Stamp out the sentiment on to a long strip of white card then trim to the desired length, add another thin strip of black card underneath at a slightly crooked angle.

Step Six:

Attach the sentiment in place using 1mm foam pads then add the giraffe to the centre using more foam pads. Finish off with a sprinkling of enamel dots and hearts.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope I have inspired you to have a go at this design, you can use which ever character you like. Happy crafting – Jackie x

No Sew Felt Ornament

November 30, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. When I first saw the Holiday Stocking, I knew that it would make a cute ornament. Not only that, but it would make a great way to give a gift card. I do not always want to pull out my sewing machine so I have opted for a no sew method.


Cut two stockings out of felt from the Holiday Stocking die set. Also cut the stocking cuff from white felt. For this stocking, I used glittered felt. The snowflake is from the Warm Winter Mug die set. I have cut the toe and the heel from green felt.

The felt glue is a bit on the thick side. Because I want to have the thinnest seam possible, I found it easier to apply the glue around the edge with a toothpick. The glue will dry clear

Lay the second stocking on top. I prefer to weight it down with a heavy book to dry. Once dry, attach the cuff, toe, heel, and snowflake.

I added a small hole in the back and tie a ribbon loop to make it into an ornament.

For a decorative option, you can add a blanket stitch to the stocking. I marked 1/4″ into the stocking and 1/4″ apart

Using thread or floss, create a blanket stitch around the edge of the stocking. It gives a fun, handmade feel

Here are a few of the stockings that I created with this technique. It is the perfect size to slip in a gift card or money.

Inspiration from the Design Team Joset Designs Planner Essentials Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock

Jellie’s Christmas house

November 28, 2022

Hii all, it is almost the best time of the year in my opinion. If I aks my nephew he would say the same. The card that I’m sharing with you today is a birthday card for him. He love his cat Jellie and like Christmas. That’s for me 2 good things to combine.

For this card I use the beautiful Christmas Lives Here and some Soft Finish Cardstock for the cat.

I started with a stitched hexagon as base.

Instead of a doghouse I made a cat house. When you use this dies you only made the green part. I adhere some black paper so it looks more like a closed house.

After that I made the red parts and made some Christmas lights. The ligths are a dies from de Holiday Bird House. It brings me into the Christmas mood. I made some sparkling Christmas lights with the Silk Microfine Glitter. Just die-cut the lights with some double sided adhesive at the top. That is why I can put some glitter at it and rub it to the tape.

Now the cat is still missing. My nephew have a cat named Jellie. He is black with white and some green/yellow eyes. He is wearing a party hat from the party time dies.

When I finished everything the background was empty. It was a little late when I think about making a background with a stencil. So I did it very carefully at the sides.

I hope you like this blogpost and get some ideas.

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne

Holiday Treats

November 21, 2022

Hello. Jackie here with today inspiration. I was playing with the new Warm Winter Mug die set and thought hmmmm I wonder if I could make a cupcake! and what do you know it works perfectly.

Step One

Die cut the solid mug part first, you do not need to cut the whole mug as we will only need the bottom half. Trim the handle off.

Step Two.

Lay the two fancy dies on to the solid cut piece, lift off the bottom die then run this though a die cutting machine creating the base for the cupcake. Die cut the fancy piece again into coloured card then glue on top.

Step Three.

Draw and fussy cut out a cake shape as shown in the photo, this will not need to be perfect as you will only see a small amount. Glue the cake in place behind the cup case then the cream on top.

Step Four.

Next, create the striped pattern directly on to an A2 top folding card blank. Trim a hand fall of pink striped patterned paper then starting at one diagonal end glue the first piece in place. cut a 1cm strip of card to act as a template to achieve the correct spacing, continue to glue the thin strips in place until the front is covered then cut off all the overhanging pieces. Repeat this step again only using thinner silver glittered card strips.

Step Five.

Use a stitched rectangle die to cut a small layer. cut this into both coloured card and vellum then attach the two together with a small piece of double-sided tape in the centre. Fix in place on the card front using 1mm foam pads.

Step Six.

Decorate the top of the cup cake with various goodies then attach to the card front using more 3d foam pads. finish off by adding a little bit of sparkle here and there along with the sentiment.

I really love the way you can create different things form Joset’s dies. I hope I have inspired you to have a go at making this cupcake card.

Happy crafting Jackie x
