Raccoon Love

February 28, 2021

Welcome! Samantha here sharing a heart inspired card I created using Elizabeth Craft Designs Raccoon die which I decided to pair with a die from Planner Essentials #20. Cute Raccoons and Love are a perfect mix!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Create a card front using white card (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm)

Step 2: Using black, dark grey, and light grey die cut the Raccoon and loosely assemble.

Step 3: Using yellow, blue, and pink cardstock die cut the ‘LOVE’ die, use the negatives and trim as shown below. Keep the die cut letters for the next step.

Step 4: Adhere the ‘LOVE’ negatives to black card stock, and insert some of the letters as shown below.

Step 5: Adhere these to the white card front. Add machine stitched details (optional).

Step 6: Complete assembly of the Raccoon and adhere it to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins, a twine bow and a few love hearts. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

I love how this card came together! The colours pop off the card and the raccoon is super cute!

Happy Crafting!

Samantha

Fave moment

February 24, 2021

Hi Crafters! Lisanne here. I’m here again with a new blog post. This time I made a Sidekick Planner page with the cute Honey Bear.

For the base I used the Sidekick Essentials 4 and the Reminiscene Paper pad. On this page I glued the Honey page (Sidekick Essentials 13). I colored all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

So first I made this cute Honey Bear with the Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. I used Ground Espresso and Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs for the bear. The honey jar is made with Brushed Corduroy and Fossilized Amber. I also colored the little bee by myself with Distress Ink (Fossilized Amber and Black Soot).

I adhered the bear to a tag from the Sidekick Essentials 11. I like the little stitch line at the tag. I also made a little tag with the sentence “Fave Moment” from CS120. Behind pink design paper I put a little piece of the Journal Edges from the Art Journal Special. It is just a little piece but it looks great!

In the right corner I used the Jungle Leaves with some flowers. I did the same with the left page, so I wanted to do the same at the right page. The large flower is from Florals 8 and the little flowers from Florals 1. This time I cut them out design paper. The leave is colord with Crushed Olive. These flowers makes me so happy!

I put a sequin in the center of the large flowers and added some reinforcers. These kind of pages are so great to make! Like all the cute characters but also the planner dies.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much I enjoyed creating this page. Thank you so much for reading this post and have a great day!

Picture This

February 21, 2021
It’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little photo frame that is perfect for any child’s room where they can change the photo whenever they like. They can use it to display their favorite photos weather they are real or imaginary.

Begin by using the Castle Folding Card, cutting out the main part with the window section twice. Cut one down the center as shown above.

Line up the sections of the castle and glue together. Stamp some bricks using the stamp from the Prince & Frog Sentiments. Add some color, I used Watering Can Archival Ink and a blending brush.

Back the windows with the color of your choice, assemble the Prince and Princess and then add the photo frame from the Planner Essentials 3.

Crease the castle on each side, shown with the red arrows above.

When adding the backing for the frame – leave an open space just above the word PHOTO, shown with the white arrow above. This way the photos can be easily changed by sliding them into the opening.

For the base, simply cover a piece of chipboard with paper. In the photo above you will see that I marked where I wanted to place my castle and frame.

To make the frame stand up – cut 2 strips of cardstock 1″ X 5″ and crease ever inch. Fold on the creases and then glue together to form a box. Glue box at each end of the castle and then glue to base at an angle. This will keep the castle from falling over. Another piece of cardstock was added to the center section to help hold in place.

All that is left is to add the photo of your choice. A little crown was added to the photo just for fun.

Have a Royal Day,

Sandy

Final Greenville Planner Pages with video tour

February 3, 2021

Hello everyone, Annette Green here today with my final pages in my Greenville Planner which I’ve been sharing throughout 2020. I ended this planner/journal with some Fall pages, at which time my planner was filled to the brim. I decided it was a good place to stop, especially since I started a new planner in December for my Day-by-Day memories. (You can check that December DBD video out HERE if you like.)

As you can see, I’ve introduced the Phone Booth Special die set into my planner. I hope you follow along as I share how my pages came together. All products used for this final layout are shown at the end of this post.
I began by die-cutting my paper from the Rusty Weathered collection using the Planner Essentials 1 page die. From the Reminiscence paper collection, I fussy-cut three sunflowers and adhered them around the page. From the Reinforcement Pack 2, I die cut the leaf shapes and adhered them in place.
Next I used the tag die from Planner Essentials 4 to cut my photos, then matted around them with a deep red card stock. The tag shapes gives a little more interest than a simple rectangle. Finally, I stamped the list from the CS119 Reminders stamp set onto ivory card stock, colored in the arrow and inked the outer edges before adhering in place.
For the facing page, I cut the same paper using the Planner Essentials 4 page die, added the same leaf-shaped reinforcers and fussy cut one more sunflower. The large circles and scalloped circles were die-cut from the Pizza Box set and the “heart this” is die-cut from Planner Essentials 30 Wave Pocket die set which are then adhered to a stamped label from the CS133 Retro Labels stamp set.
After stamping the journaling block using the Sidekick 1 stamp set, I added my photos. If you’re curious how to cut circles from your photos, check out the video tour below.
Since I had more photos to feature, I decided to add the cute Phone Booth as an insert. What a fun die set to play with! I added the word Fall using the letters from the Butterfly Pocket Insert set and the pumpkins and leaves from Joset’s Pumpkins set, and all other elements are from the Phone Booth set.
The door to the Phone Booth opens out to this fun area for more photos and journaling. I used the Planner Filmstrip set to cut two photo frames for the right side of this page.
Small photos fit nicely inside here, and it’s a great place for a little hidden journaling.
For the back side of my Phone Booth insert I added more fun elements from the die set, as well as the photo mat/tag from the Wave Pocket set I used earlier, and of course one more fussy-cut sunflower and the leaf reinforcements.
Once I added my last photo, I finished off this page by stamping the word “Happy” from the Sidekick 1 stamp set. And my pages are done, my Greenville Planner is done, and I’m moving on to my 2021 planner and Nature Notebook Planner which you’ll see in future posts. If you’d like to check out my video tour of my entire Greenville Planner, I’ve provided it below. Thanks so much for stopping in today!

Oh happy day!

January 27, 2021

Hi crafters! Lisanne here. So today is my very first blogpost for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and I’m so excited to share my projects with all of you! Today I want to share this planner page in my Ground Espresso Sidekick planner. For this page I used a lot of different ECD dies. They are so great to use together! I will explain a little bit more below how I created this page.

For the base I used the Sidekick Essentials 2 and I used the Reminscene paperpad COO2. This paper is so lovely with these stamps at the background.

The tag with the flower girl is from the Planner Essentials 30 Wave Pocket and the paper I used is from the Reminiscene book. For the bushes I used Adventure Edges 2. The cute little flowers which I cut from the Reminiscene Book are part of the Adventure Edges 2 as well. Now you can see that the Holiday Elf Her is turned into a flower girl! I realy like this way of using dies. At the back of the tag I put some pieces from the Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces.

When I adhered the tag on the page I put them behind a little piece from the Note Pieces. You can also see that piece with the text Oh happy day! This stamp is from the Pieces of Life 4. I also used the cute Flower reinforcers.

Thank you so much for reading this blogpost and I hope that I inspired you a little bit today to works with these fun dies!

Have a happy day!

A special birthday

January 15, 2021

We had another birthday in the family. Sarah turned 18!! Sarah celebrated her 18th birthday sober but with Bubbles, cake and garlands! I also incorporated this special birthday into my planner.

Sarah loves pancakes so I was already up early in the morning making dough and baking them. With a delicious fresh smoothie, a real birthday breakfast.

The tag is incorporated behind it and on the back is the journaling. 

In the evening her sister and friend came to celebrate and we toasted on Sarah’s birthday and better times.

With a little folder I wrote the title, another scrapbook page in my planner.

Places I’ve Been – Delaware

January 8, 2021

Karen here today. I’m still working through my virtual travels in my “Places I’ve Been” journal. Today’s trip is to Delaware. I went with a girlfriend in December 2019. For today’s post, I decided to finally try out the Planner Essentials 22, Planner Pocket 3. It’s a fun die set!

LoVe this. For thee pages, I used mostly paper from Reminiscence, The Book. Some of the embellishments were created from the Mystical Winter Collection and/or from my stash.

To create this page, I cut out the “inner tag” at 4″x7-1/2″ and cut the tag topper and pocket from Planner Essentials 22. I used a transparency for the window. The page base is cut with Planner Essentials 4. A great video on putting together the page can be found here. The letter dies can be found in Planner Essentials 23. I used both the smallest and the medium versions of the letters. To make application easier, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the paper before cutting it.

The tag is embellished with stamps from Destination Phrases, Water Creatures and Background 1. I used some Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides (along with black ink). I also added a couple fishes from the Diving Accessories dies and some Artsy Scenery Washi Tape.

The shells and flowers that I used for embellishing the front and back of my Delaware pages are from the Seashells, Flower Power, and Blooming Branches dies. I used small scraps of paper from Mystical Winter, Reminiscence and other scraps in my stash.

The back page also has a few dies from the Planner Labels set. I used White Craft Drops and dies from the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1 and 2.

So much fun creating these pages! Thank you for stopping by.

Craftily yours, Karen

2021 Planner Dashboard and January Divider Page

January 5, 2021

Hello again, it’s Annette Green here with a brand new Planner for 2021. I’ve created a simple dashboard page and my first monthly divider page to share with you today.

This is my actual planner/datebook for the year which I will use for appointments, to-do lists, and notes. Each month will have a divider and one photo mat reserved for my top photo of the month. All other memory keeping will be done in a separate planner.
To create my dashboard page, I die-cut pretty paper (Graphic 45’s Woodland Friends collection) using the Wave Pocket die which I will create a double pocket page with. I will adhere it to a plain page (blue) which I die-cut using Planner Essentials 4. As an accent piece, I die-cut the small piece using the Note Pieces set.
After folding the wave pocket piece, I adhered it to the blue page using adhesive on the left, right and bottom only to create a double pocket. These pockets will be used for things such as a list of goals for the year, memorabilia, or receipts for a few examples. I die-cut 2021 (pink) from the Retro Number Trio set as well as two hole reinforcers from the Reinforcement Variety Pack. The final touches are stickers from the paper collection.
Onto the back of my dashboard page I built a photo page by die-cutting two tag shapes, one inside the other, from floral pink paper using the Wave Pocket die set again. I’ll save the smaller tag for later. I also die-cut the outline pieces from green paper for decorating the tag top. Finally, I cut an ivory cardstock piece for my photo window.
After adhering the ivory card stock to the back of the larger tag, I adhered this unit to the page and added border strips and a pretty sticker across the top. To finish it off, I die-cut some hole reinforcers in two colors, blue and green, as well as the “Heart This” unit from the Wave Pocket die set.
The back side of my dashboard page is now complete and ready for my favorite photo of the month of January.
Next, I die-cut the tabbed page from Planner Essentials 1 (pink floral paper) and stamped the month using the CS116 “Months” stamp set. Then I die-cut January from the Planner Months die set and adhered it to patterned paper, then trimmed out a small calendar and also mounted it to blue patterned paper, and adhered all these elements to the page.
After adding a few more hole reinforcements to the page, it’s done! Next I’ll insert my actual planner pages I’ve created myself on my computer, which are also available for download (ruled or unruled) in my Etsy shop along with the mini calendars. They’ve been designed specifically for the ECD planner just for you ECD fans! I’m creating a video tutorial of this 2021 planner which will be finished this week, so stay tuned for that on my blog and YouTube channel. Thanks so much for visiting today!

Sidekick Planner Page

January 3, 2021

Hello everyone, 

Here I am again, in a new year with new opportunities. First of all, I want to wish everyone a fantastic 2021 because we all deserved it! Let’s look out for each other and the world a little bit more and be nice to each other.

And now my pages for the first week of this new year.

This is a double page for in my sidekick planner. This year I want to use it as kind of agenda/planner. I can then incorporate the special memories into my large planner. For these pages I used paper from Reminiscence The Book.

Meanwhile there are already a lot of nice die sets of which I have used several. At the bottom of this post I will post a list of the products used. But first….. Coffee!!! 😉

I already placed all my appointments for this week in my planner. Enough time to play with my planner and stuff this week 😉

I used the super fun road sign here for the days of the week.

The sidekick planner is perhaps my favorite. Wonderfully handy and you can still incorporate a lot into it.

It was super fun to work on this again,           

See you next time,

Marjolijn.
