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!
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!
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!

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.
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.)
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!

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.
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.
