Today I made this cute whale that I combined with the lovely papers from Modacrap. I love the paperpads. They are so cute and colorfull. And collerfull is what I love!
For this card I used a slimline die. This die is from the new Planner Essentials set 41 – Rounded Corners Page. At first take this part of the die and your basepaper. In this case I took the paper with the whales in blue and red. The frame is also from the same set. The frame I made only in the soft finish cardstock because the background is already so colorfull.
On the back of the frame you can make two squares in different colors. For these squares I used papers with a bit of a calmer print as I’m planning to add the whale on one squares and a text on the other.
Than I took some brown cardstock on the back of my base slimline. I added some jute twine between the background paper and my cardstock. I left the jute a bit longer than my background so it would stick out on both end. You can make the frame stick out on the right side as well for a playful effect.
And then comes my favorite part of the card! A cute die from the collection of Joset. This time I choose the whale. He is so cute and matches so pretty with the paper. The whale I collered with Distress Ink. I used weathered wood for his body, stormy sky for the water splashes and fired brick for the mouth of the whale. I adhered the whale to the left square.
On the right side I made the word whale with the letter dies blackboard alphabet. This is one of my favorite dies. You can combine it with so much dies on so many creations.
Finally I added some decoration. In the corner a steering wheel and lifebuoy. These are parts from the Whale and the Octopus sets. On the right side of the frame are two holes, here I added some jute twine. It mached with the colors of the card.
I had fun creating this card and hopefully I inspired you to make your own version!
This time I used the a Dutch magazine “Flow” in my planner. This “book for nature lovers” was perfect for that. I used a combination of dies from the Planner, Sidekick and Art-journal collection.
The Flow contains many paper extras that I have scattered here and there in this planner. What I’m going to use this planner for I don’t know yet but it was just fun to play with the dies and the paper. Sometimes I added some sentiments. Photos of the garden will probably be added later, because this paper lends itself perfectly for that.
I hadn’t used this die set in a long time and it is so much fun. Voilà, here he is again.
And I almost forgot about this die set. There are so many new and fun products on the market from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner collection, too many to list! Sometimes it is useful to browse through your collection and then you suddenly come up with ideas.
I used a different color for all 4 seasons where the paper also comes from a different designer. Furthermore I have always repeated the layout but always made a different special pages in it. The envelopes contain all ready-made cards that were included in the magazine. Handy if you want to send a card.
I had already shown this page made with the Phone Booth die set. I love it!!! It is a pity that all those beautiful telephone booths have disappeared from the streets, especially this English one ofcourse. Recently I saw on T.V. in a nostalgic English village such an old telephone booth has been transformed into a neighborhood library. So cute and the books were kept nice and dry. Really nice to give it a new function like this.
This was my post for today, maybe you also have an old or new magazine somewhere that you’ve always wanted to do something with. Or how about an old picture book? Then this is of course a super nice idea. I hope you’re inspired by this post. If you want to see more pictures from the pages that I created, make sure to visit my blog HERE.
Karen here today. As things are starting to open back up, I’m getting more and more excited about the possibility of travel, and I’m still enjoying adding to my “Places I’ve Been” Journal. Today, I used the BEAUTIFUL new Rainbow of Happiness Papers to create a couple journal pages of my trip to Florida in 2006.
I love this fun, bright colorful paper and thought it perfect to use for pictures of fun, bright and colorful theme parks we visited in Florida! For the page base, I used Planner Essentials 3. I die cut a Fitted Heart and placed it off to one side and used letters from Planner Essentials 23 to cut the word “Florida” after backing that piece of paper with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. (Makes assembly SO easy). I added a couple postage stamps and the little banners that were part of the Planner Essentials 3 set. Finally, I added a funny little sentiment using my Dymo labeler. And of course, no lay-out is done without some fun reinforcements. The small circles are part of the Reinforcement Variety Pack. The stars are part of a Planner Essentials that is no longer offered. The sentiment stamped into the tab is from the Family Stamps.
On the back of the page, I added a Giraffe (so cute) and used similar products to the front side. On our trip, we had the opportunity to pet and feed giraffes, and that adorable die marks that occasion perfectly. The “Wow Moment” stamp is from the Months Stamps.
It’s going so fast this year, the days, weeks are flying by. Unfortunately no family Easter brunch this year, last year also not, I do miss it. Luckily it is also very cozy together with the children and we had a very nice Easter party.
It has become a double page again, which I like best for an overview.
Here the flaps are closed, I love these pages!
For the right page I used the Sidekick Essentials 10, around which I folded the wave pocket page, also from the sidekick collection. The large pocket is on the back, which I can use for a next overview. The sentiment “Happy Easter” I made with the alphabet from the Art collection. And Oliver (Tim Holtz) finishes this page. In the pocket there are 2 tags with photos and journaling.
The left page is made with the Sidekick Essentials 11 set. Behind the photo are some bunnies (Tim Holtz) and also one on the photo. I adhered the picture on the page before I put the reinforcements on it. That’s all this page needed.
I made the tags with the tag die from Planner Essentials 11. I like them oh so much! And that sweet bunny is an older Elizabeth Craft Designs die. Unfortunately no longer available but still so nice!! Especially………
That bun of the bunny…look how cute :-). This is the back of the tags with even more photos and journaling.
Both Oliver and the bunny are colored with watercolor paint.
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!

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!

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’s Karen here today. I’m having such fun with the #DecemberDBD posts. Today’s features the Planner Essentials 32 and 33 – the Viewmaster. One of my favorite things each year is to decorate my tree because I love seeing all of my ornaments each year, so for this page, I used the viewmaster die to create a page highlighting a few.
To create this page, by cutting the patterned paper with the page base in Planner Essentials 4. Then cut the viewmaster from Planner Essentials 32 from the brown paper with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back (to make adhering it easier!).
Print 7 small pictures of ornaments. (I use a Selphy) and cut them with the frame dies in the Planner Essentials 32 set. Also cut out gold frames for each of the windows. (These are also cut with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive)
Adhere it all together. Add the “Simply the Best” sentiment from Planner Essentials 33.
And a date from Planner Essentials 17…..and of course some cute reinforcements. (Stars come from Planner Essentials 14, Gears from Reinforcement Variety Pack 1, Doilies from Reinforcement Variety Pack 2)
