Cruising

May 31, 2022

Hello everyone, It’s Marjolijn here back on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. I am so in love with that little boat from the new Planner Essentials Suitcase set. It is so fun to play with! Making it is already a party and if you can also let the boat sail then it will be even more fun!!! So today I decided to make a fun card using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Pull Tabs die set to make this adorable boat sail. Let me show you how I created it.

Where does the boat sail to? The adventure awaits.

The elements from P.E. 48 have been used as reinforcements. Now this card is not going in my planner but I thought it was a nice idea.

The string runs from the anchor to the tab.

I used a black card as the background, which contrasts nicely with the blue.

And that’s how the card was made.

I die cut all the parts of the boat from white 250 grams DCP paper.

I colored all parts with Distress Ink. Antique linen, Pine needles, Faded jeans and Frayed burlap. I used frayed burlap for all the edges as well. After coloring I assembled the boat.

I used Frayed burlap Distress Ink for all the edges as well. After coloring I assembled the boat.

In the pictures above you can see all the other parts that I used for the card. First you apply the pull tab in the mermaid tail page. If you have never made a pull-tab card before, make sure yo watch this Facebook live video by Joset.

Fold the tab in half and stick the “cruising tab” (from book 4) on it. You do this in such a way that it is completely visible when you pull out the tab. Fold the remaining part and stick it so that the tab becomes extra sturdy. Then adhere the mermaid tail page on the middle of the card.

Adhere the boat on in such a way that when the tab is closed you can no longer see the opening underneath. I used the smallest strip. Then adhere the steering wheel, the fish and the anchor over the holes on the edge of the page, the starfish gets a spot at the bottom left. Adhere the stamp between the starfish and the anchor. Make a double card, about 1 cm larger, from black cardstock and adhere your card on it. Now your card is ready 🙂

I hope you enjoyed creating this card as much as I did!

Greetings,

Marjolijn

I am using set 2 today and use 5 different stencils to create a technique called: stencil layering technique. it creates a lot of depth. On the ECD planners and Journaling Facebook group there is a monthly challenge. this month it was: use your two favorite colors. Mine are vintage photo and salvaged patina from the Distress collection. Below you can see a simple step by step tutorial of how i made this beautiful page:

next i repeat the same process on the circle.
and here is the finished page in my planner. I love the vintage, grungy feel this page has. The Planner stencils are a dream to work with and are of a great quality. What a great addition to the Planner Essentials Collection!

New Bucket (of Strawberries) Summer Planner Spread

April 11, 2022
Hello again everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with some more Summer planner pages featuring the new Flower Pot/Bucket die set from Joset. I combined Planner Essentials dies with the flower pot and Strawberries die to showcase some cute photos of my dog Suki eating strawberries, as well as a visit from my parents last year. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” style video if you’d like to follow along as I design and assemble these pages.
As I describe in the video, to make more room for journaling and large sized photos, I added a half-page in the middle of my two full-size pages using the Planner Essentials 14 Bookmark 1 set. This is an interesting way to layer and still see some of the elements from the other pages peeking through.
The star of the show, besides Suki, is the rusty bucket full of strawberries. With a few alcohol inks and some silver metallic cardstock, you can get the same look quickly and easily. It makes a fun embellishment to the page to help tie everything together. I hope you take a moment to watch the video, as I share some techniques I used and helpful design tips along the way. All products I’ve used today are linked below, in addition to some of the other new dies I showed in the video which I used on other projects. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!

Swimming Diploma

April 4, 2022

Hello everyone! How are you today? Today I want to show you a planner page. This time I made a page for our youngest son who was allowed to swim for his swimming diploma. Last Saturday the time had come and he made it!

For this page I used the beautiful paper of Modascrap (sailer’s life) Modascrap is one of my favorite papers! This topic fit wright in! Also the colors are matching with the swimming diploma.

First I cut out the page. This is a page from the new planner serie (porthole page 1937). For the protholes there is a matching die in this set. I cut out two of them with jeans fabric. On the backside of it I used clear double sided adhesive. Do not remove the layer of the adhesive. The fabric will stretch. Use glue to fix it.

The middle one I made red with the distress ink color Aged Mohagany. This because here comes the photo and so it can stand out a bith with the other two.

Than printed a photo with the selphy printer. Size it up and make it in the middle window. I’m so proud of our litlle boy!

At the bottom window I used the whale of Joset’s collection. It fit’s perfectly with the theme and the paper. On the background of the window some paper also from the Modascrap theme. The whale is just as happy as out son.

For the top window also some nice decoration. The fish belongs to the set of the planner page. (1937) The water plants on the background belongs to a summer kit. The nice text comes from a set of the sidekick planner (1769)

Finally, some appropriate re-inforcers. Of course also in the same theme as the rest of the pages.

Hopefully you like this page as much as I do and see you next time!

Panda Bear

February 21, 2022

Hello everyone! How are you? Here in the Netherlands we had a big storm this weekend, so it was the perfect weather to craft!

This time I wanted to create a double page in my planner. I chose the Japanese theme for this. Love this theme! I had an idea in my head what I wanted to make.

I started die-cutting two pages out of black craft. For this I used the splatter page. On the back side of the splatter pages I made a basic page in pink. Pink is a favorite color for this theme and also a favorite color of me. Almost on every project I used this color. I usually color everything with distress ink but for this page I chose cardstock which already had the right color.

On the splatter page I made some clouds with a mask stencil and distress oxide in the color spun sugar. The oxide ink has a very cool effect on the black paper. It looks like fog. The mask stencil is ideal for making clouds. I use it very often.

After that I made the panda bear and the koala. Two cute animals in this theme. There will be one on each page. I die cut both animals with White Soft Finish Cardstock and colored them with distress ink. Two little friends.

On the left page I used the symbol background. Made it also in the pink color, the same as on the base page. On the right page I made the bridge and some bamboo for the Panda bear and a cute little temple in front.

To make the pages a whole I made lanterns on the top. I made the background of the lanterns yellow to make it look like they are really on.

I connected the lanterns with a hemp cord to finish it all off.

This was my creation for this time. I hope it inspired you! See you next time.

Making week 5: Planner Essentials 41 with a twist

February 17, 2022

Hello my fellow crafters and welcome. My name is Devid and I am so happy to be back on the Elizabeth Craft Design blog. One of the things I love about the dies from the Planner Essentials collection is the versatility of them. I was thinking about what to do for week 5 and then it hit me. I decided to use the Planner Essentials 41 Rounded Corners Page but to use it in a different way: Make pockets out of it. And I am happy to see it worked out perfectly.

step 1: Die cut all the elements you need. Since I used thin paper for the base page I used the thicker paper from Reminiscence the book 3 to create the mat layer
Using the die with the 2 windows I cut out 2 pieces. one from the thiner paper I used as a base page, one from the thicker card. I want to make the pockets out of this die so I needed this to be more firm.
Step 3: Using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Double Sided Adhesive tape (I used 6 mm but you can use wider) on the back of the Matt layer and attach to the base page

I realy hope you like this one as much as I did! All products I used are listed below. Thank you for reading along and I hope to see you soon again!

Altering Photo Pocket Pages to Fit the Sidekick

February 14, 2022
Hello again everyone, Annette Green here today with a few ideas on how to use the new Photo Pocket Pages (designed for the regular planner) in your Sidekick planner. I was curious to figure out if this was possible, so I did some experimenting and came up with something fun you may like to try. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” style video as I created my pages and I share the steps to altering the pocket pages.
I returned to my nature planner which is the Espresso Sidekick to create a few simple pages. The pocket pages are great to work with because not only do they protect my photos, they allow for some fun layering ideas and that interesting “see through” effect to the pages behind them. The first page option is to simply trim the top and bottom off the narrowest pocket page in the package, as shown on the left here.
I’ve created this split-in-two pocket for a second option, as you’ll see in the video. All you need is a craft knife, ruler and mat. The pages cut easily and also sew quite nicely on the sewing machine. If sewing isn’t your thing, closing up the cut edge can easily be done with some washi tape or coordinating paper. I hope you take a moment to check out the video, and perhaps you’ll give this a try too.

Fun in Florida planner pages

January 13, 2022
Hello everyone, Annette Green here with some planner pages from my weekend trip to Florida last year. (Yes, I’m still trying to catch up on my scrapbooking planner from 2021.) I created a two-page spread with an insert page to maximize the space for more photos. The left page is a regular page shape from Planner Essentials 4. All supplies are linked at the end of this post.
The middle insert is from Planner Essentials 35 Holiday Tab Pages and the right page is from Planner Essentials 38 Splatter Page. I went with a sunny, bright palette of colors for the pages mixing papers from the Book 1, Rusty Weathered, and Rainbow of Happiness.



I enjoyed using some older dies and stamps I haven’t pulled out in a while, like Planner Labels 1658 for the tag, Pieces of Life 3 Quotes stamp set for the sentiment, and CS135 My Life for the scalloped border.
Another label from the Planner Labels set is shown here with April from 1657 Planner Months. The flowers in the background are fussy-cut from Reminiscence The Book 1.
For the insert page I pulled in more of the fussy-cut flowers to frame the photo and balance with the facing page. The BFF circle is a fun accent from Planner Essentials 43 Circle Words which includes a total of 20 words! That cute little grapefruit die-cut is one from Joset’s 1542 Summer Drink which I also used on the next page.
On the flip side of the insert I added a cute photo of my parents’ dog Rocco who was trying to get my attention at the time. I framed him with the die from Planner Essentials 3 and stamped some paw prints and You’re So Cute from CS138 Furrever Friends.
On the final righthand page, I added embellishments from the Summer Drink die again, this time using the mug, the umbrella and more fruit pieces. I finished off the page with a photo of my Mom, sister and I celebrating an early Mother’s Day, and stamped the circle from CS131 Circle Labels. If you go back to the full page image, you’ll see I did some journaling about my trip using the Note Pieces stamp set and coordinating die set. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed these fun Florida pages!

December Day by Day

September 16, 2021

Yeah I know I’m a little early on but oh it’s so much fun too!

It should be a little more spread out over the year but Christmas and Halloween are my favorite parts to create for.

This page is for my DDBD (December Day By Day)

The wish lists are there, and for me there is only 1 thing on the list.

I want……a white christmas. Snow!!!!

I made this page with the Planner Essentials 22 Top loading. He’s so much fun, one of my favorite die sets.

The paper I used is from Charlene and Ilse’s collection Mystical Winter.

And this super cute Santa, is from Joset’s collection. Wonderful to combine everything together.

The party just keeps getting bigger.

Here are the wish lists. The stamp is from my own collection, the text stamp is from E.C.D. CS157. So cute!!!

In the top loader I glued a package of a stamp set and used it as a shaker. There’s mica in it.

I made the text with the Planner Essentials 23 Retro alphabet trio.

The date is stamped in the background. For this I used the Long & Tall numbers with December stamped with the CS116 months. Unfortunately I no longer see it in the shop.

The page is finished with the snow stars from reinforcement pack 2 that have been edited with Silk Microfine Glitter Cool diamond.

This page makes me happy and I hope you do too.

Are you a little inspired again?!

Browse through the stuff you already have, there are so many fun things you can create…..let’s get started.

Thank you for your visit

With love, Marjolijn.

Sidekick planner page

August 21, 2021

Due to circumstances I have not worked much in my Sidekick planner lately.

But he is so cute that little one! And…..there are beautiful new Sidekick planners available in very nice colors and prints!

So, hop on with it!

On the left I used the new stamp set, actually this one is from the Planner Essentials collection. I cut off day 6 and 7 and made it a planner for the weekdays only. On the right I have room for the weekend days.

I still have to fill in the page. For this planner I don’t use photos, it’s purely an overview of the things I do.

I stamped on regular printer paper and edited it a bit with Distress ink so it blends in a bit more with the background.

That cute girl is from one of Esther’s new stamp sets, so sweet. I just stamped on kraft paper and cut it out. The bee is also from that set.

On the right I made a pocket and put a card in it. I can write the weekend things on it or stick a very small photo.

Again such a sweet girl, from another new set of Esther.

The pages further dressed up with what, yes, what do you call that?

It is a new die from a set for the Planner Essentials. I tore off pieces there and incorporated them both on the left and right of the page.

The page on the right is embossed paper, I created that with a 3D embossing die from Ellison/sizzix.
