Hello there.. Jackie here with todays inspiration. Todays card is great if you need a super quick design in a hurry! this card could also suit a number of different occasions by simply switching out the sentiment.

Step One:

Start by stamping out the ‘happy text’ from stamp set – Everyday Essentials Happy CS299 on to a scrap of whit ecard stock.

Step Two:

Use the cloud like die form set – Slimline adventure edges 1925 to cut two strips that resemble clouds. Ink the shaped edge to add some dimention.

Step Three:

Cut a panel of white cardstock measuring 5 x 5″ or 127 x 127mm. Trim the prepared cloud strips to fit across the panel then glue in place at a slightly crocked angle. Stamp the LOVE YOU sentiment using black ink. – I did cut my stamp so that I could use the love you on its own but you can mask off the stamp if you prefer.

Step Four:

Layer the panel onto a top folding card blank measuring 5.25 x 5.25″ or 135 x 135mm.

Die cut the square frame into black cardstock then again into back fun foam and glue the two together. Fix this to the centre of the card front.

Step Five:

Use the balloon die to cut three patterned paper balloons then tie some gold twine around each one leaving a long tail. Pop up on 3d foam pads.

Step Six:

Carefully glue the balloon tails at the card bottom then once dry trim off any excess. add some hearts form the shaker bits along with a few sequins.

That’s it for todays card, I hope I have inspired you today. Like I said before this card would be good for a number of occasion – Happy crafting.. Jackie.

My heart belongs to you! by Katie Porcina

February 24, 2023

Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. This year my husband and I are celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary, and with the prompt being “love” for the month of February I wanted to create this heartfelt creation for my planner essentials album. So grab a coffee and I will walk you through how I created these pages!

Step 1: Out of the worn wood paper cut your large heart, and cut your small heart from your choice of designer paper I used an older 49 & Market collection. Next, I cut out some white branches from blooming branches. I cut out two mats and added my ephemera and accessories.

Step 2: Cut two base pages from planner essentials 1 from your choice of designer paper, next I cut my polaroid photo mat from planner essentials 3 & 4 and tags from the worn wood designer paper. Cut out your quote “Enjoy this moment” from planner essentials 8.

Step 3: Creating your small heart pocket, first take your large heart stitched die and cut from clear acetate, next cut your small heart from your designer paper and attach. You will want to add your holes and line it up to the match the holes on your planner base page.

I attached the pocket leaving the top open to add my tags. Last assemble your pages as per the picture above adding your ephemera, branches, quotes, flowers, photo mats, date and enforcement rings on both pages.

I hope todays post brought you some inspiration to create your own anniversary or special moment pages.

Have a wonderful day and happy creating, >Katie<

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

January 31, 2023

Hello everyone, Marjolijn here! Today I would like to show you a new calendar page for my birthday calendar. This time, of course, with a Valentine’s theme. Made with the beautiful paper from the 12″ x 12″ Get Creative paper pack, available now!!! For this page I used the top loading set, which is still great fun. On top of that I adhered the new hearts page from the “Get creative” set. I only adhered the page at the edges so that something can be behind it.

A separate calendar sheet fits perfectly in the pocket, which is quite handy because after a while you always have people who no longer need to be on your calendar, you only have to add a new sheet.

For the strips I covered the base strips with double sided tape before I die cut them. Pasted the layer with the cut-out text over it and then filled the text with glitter. It’s hard to see in the photos but it gives such a nice effect. I also did the same with the bottom of the date page, first punched out February, double sided tape behind it and then glitter over it. The kisses/mouths also got a layer of glitter.

A window label has been pasted in the bottom right corner, with a piece of foil in the window, just from a package. I love using things we would throw in the garbage otherwise, life is expensive enough 😉 And that light with the heart in it, how nice is that! The label is pasted around the page so that a kind of pocket is created at the back. There are strips in here with a sweet kiss on top. The page with the hearts and the kisses are from Esther’s new collection, Planner Essentials 57 – Heart Lover.

With the tabs I adhered the month to the side again. I want to use the back of the calendar sheet to add a photo of one of the birthday people from that month.

Again that nice light and some tickets from the new “Get creative” set with Dutch sentiments, also a new stamp set from Esther. Very nice for lovers of Dutch sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thank you for visiting.

With love,

Baked with love

January 9, 2023

Hello everyone, Jackie here today. With valentines day just around the corner we need to think about making a few love related designs. Here I have used the very adorable aga/cooker form Joset to create this cute valentines card with hidden message, I think this card would also work well as a planner page.

Step One:

Cover the entire front of an A2 card blank with dark pink card, trim a panel to fit the front at approximately 5.25 x 4″ and gently ink around the edge with light pink ink then glue the panel in place.

Step Two:

Die cut the cooker front. Trim off all the doors at the hinges then glue a piece of light pink card behind, stamp the words in to each door opening then die cut and glue the other cooker front on top ensuring not to glue at the door openings.

Step Three:

Die cut the splash back and ink around the edge with light pink ink then attach a tiny heart to alternate tiles, you will not need to fix any hearts to the middle section as this will be covered. Add all the other finishing touches to the cooker.

Step Four:

Attach some thin strips of 3d foam tape on the reverse side of the cooker base as shown in the photo. Cut a piece of white card to fit in side the back, ink around the edge again with the light pink ink then stamp out the sentiment and attach a die cut cake to the very top. (layer the cake up with a few die cuts to add stability) you can hand write the word pull onto the cake.

This cooker design could easily be used for any occasion with any number of different sentiments added.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you to make a few love designs either cards or planner pages. Happy crafting Jackie x

Splatter cow

June 11, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s my turn today to share my latest design with you all. I do like to make all sorts of styles in cardmaking but my most favourite is the more clean and simple style, here we have a simple card that fits that theme perfectly.

Step One:

Using a sheet of white card and some watered down black acrylic paint, splatter the whole sheet then set aside to dry. The bigger the brush the bigger the splatters.

Tip: Place the white card inside a cardboard box to contain the splashes.

Step Two:

Die cut the cow mostly using the splattered sheet see image below for all the different pieces, ink the nose and udder using distress ink spun sugar and ink around the white edges using black ink.

Step Three:

Attach a panel of splattered card measuring 5.5 x 1″ to the front of a top folding A2 card black.

Step Four:

Trim another panel of white card measuring 5.5 x 3.5, attach a strip of bright pink card to the reverse side allowing approximately 1/8th to show at the edge. Fix this panel to the card front using 3d foam pads.

Step Five:

Heat emboss the sentiment onto black card using white embossing powder and a heat tool, then trim the sentiment down to a smaller strip before fixing toward the bottom of the card front using more 3d foam pads.

Step Six:

Add the Cow using more 3d foam pads then fix a few enamel dots or gem to finish off.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have been inspired to try a clean and simple style of cardmaking. Happy crafting – Jackie x

My heart’s on fire!

February 10, 2022

Hello all, It’s Jackie here today with this super cute design using some Joset’s die’s, I have only just added the jeep to my collection so I had to have a play with it. As Valentine’s day is only a few days away you may just have time to create this design for a loved one, so let’s get started.

Step 1

Die cut all the pieces for the boy and girl using the farmer and fairy 2, I have chosen to use coloured cardstock and gently ink around the edges with similar colours. You will not need all the parts as some of the girl and boy will be hidden behind the jeep.

Step 2

Next die cut all the parts for the jeep, you can die cut some of the pieces more than once and stack them together for a more dimensional look, I stacked the main pink body and the bumper twice and the front grill piece three times.

Step 3

Stamp out a heart pattern all over the main body of the jeep, set the bumper to one side then build the rest as normal.

Step 4

Stamp out the bumper sentiment using sticky embossing ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and set with a heat tool.

Step 5

Create an inked background, here I have used distress oxides worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade and iced spruce. Use the largest of the fitted rounded squares die’s to cut a panel that will fit a white card blank measuring approximately 5.25 x 5.25″

Step 6

Fix the background panel to the card front using 3d foam pads, add the boy and girl using a few more foam pads behind their heads. Add the jeep on top using even more foam pads, this is quite a dimensional card.

Although I have made this a love card you could easily switch up the sentiment to suit a number of other occasions. Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go – Happy crafting Jackie.

Love You Chicken

January 10, 2022

Hello everyone! Jackie here again with my first post for 2022 .. with valentines day fast approaching I have a quirky ‘I love you’ card today featuring a very colourful chicken and rooster perfect for a loved one. This is a quick and easy card tutorial to follow and you can easily switch up the colours to suit.

Step One

Cut a panel of patterned paper approximately 2.25×5.25″ die cut two fancy edges using the lovely planner essentials 27 and attach these top and bottom of the panel, fix the prepared panel to the centre of a top folding 5.25×5.25″ white card blank using 1mm foam pads.

Step Two

Die cut the chicken and the rooster and build as normal, you can use what ever colours you like or make them with more realistic colours.

Step Three

Fix a white die cut heart shape to the front of the card base using 2mm foam pads then attach the chicken and rooster on top using 1mm foam pad creating a 3d look.

Step Four

Stamp out the sentiment using purple ink then quickly sprinkle with clear embossing powder before heat setting. Trim the sentiment down to a small tag shape cutting a fish tail to one end and rounding the other adding a tiny hole. Thread with twine, tie a bow then fix in place on the card front to finish.

I hope I have inspired you to make this card, you can always switch this up and add different characters from Joset’s collection.

A Way With Words Stamping

Love You To The Moon

June 20, 2020

I think now more than ever we need to reach out to those we love.  Not for any special reason, just to share love.  I thought this might be a fun way to do it! We get to make a beautiful bright moon inside the ornament, create a stencil so we have a sweet spray of stars and we get to stamp a super special message.

Here’s how you can do it, too…..


Form a 5 x 7” tent fold card base from navy cardstock.

Cut a 4 x 6” panel from navy cardstock.  Die cut the Star Spray from scrap cardstock and use as a stencil.  Lightly stencil the stars across the panel with Distress Oxide Brushed Corduroy.

Die cut the flourished ornament and the flourished moon from white cardstock which has had Double Sided Adhesive adhered to the front side.

Remove the release paper and one at a time thermal emboss the flourished ornament with Forever Platinum and then the flourished moon with Brushed Silver. So nice and bright!

Stamp the sentiment (Awwww!) on white cardstock with Night Sky ink and die cut with the smallest Fitted Rectangle.  Die cut the smallest Stitched Rectangle from navy cardstock and adhere them together. 

Mount the gilded ornament and moon as shown on the stenciled panel (the flourishes can hang over the edge of the panel!).  Mount the sentiment panel on the panel with 3D adhesive squares overlapping the ornament.

Mount the stenciled panel on the card base with 3D adhesive squares.

Send to someone you love!

Be kind, be calm, stay safe.  You are loved!
Happy creating, Suzanne
