Joset Designs Planner Essentials Soft Finish Cardstock

Sweet ‘n Scary

July 28, 2022

Hi all, hope you’re doing all fine and ready for a new blogpost. It is my turn again today so I made a planner page with the lovely monsters from Joset. It is a great collection for making cards, but also great for using in a planner.

So let’s start with the page. I used the base page without tab at it (1604). It is an older dies but I think some of you have it. Above this base page I adhere the splatter page. It is just a beautiful pages that give something special. The paper I used is from Reminiscene the book 4. For the next steps I lay everything at the page and when I’m happy with it I adhere all together.

The background was very clean for me so I cut out two tags which came out the Reminiscene book 4. I als trimmed of a piece paper which I teared at the sides. Now it looks like 2 pockets with tags. Just putting a reinforcement and some hemp cord at the tags and I can adhere it. I also adhere the reinforcements at the page before everything is covered.

All the edges are coloured with Distress Ink Black Soot.

Now we can make the picture frames. The Planner Filmstrip dies (1656) has 2 frames, one with tab and one without. I die-cut this from black and kraft paper so I can make combine this together.

Behind the frames I adhere some paper so I can add pictures later. In the Splatter page set there are flowers in it. I used this as decoration at the frames. In the flowers I add the fallen pieces from the reinforcements.

I adhere the frame a little diagonally. And then the monsters. This monster is a combination from monster 2 and 3. I used the belly, tooth and wings from monster 2, the eyes from monster 3 and the nose from the party time set. The tooths are great as hair. All these elements are coloured with Distress Ink.

Isn’t this a cute one? Now then you’ll find the next one even as cute. This is monster 2 with his hat, big feets and hands who hold the frames. He even has a little flower at the top of his hat.

Then the last frame. This frame is without the tab, but I put a little filmstrip piece between the frame.

For me it gives a little bit extra. At the bottom of the frame I adhere a piece from the Reminiscene book and an arrow. Also at this frame I adhere some flowers. Oh and I totally forgot to say, before I adhere the frames to the pages I stamped some sentiments from the Monster hugs at it.

So I think I told you everything about this page, hopefully you liked it and got some ideas to.

Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Squirrel box

February 23, 2022

Hi everyone! I’m back with a new creation. This time I created a fun 3D box with squirrels. In the Netherlands we call this a “kijkdoos” and I believe in English it’s called a diorama if i’m correct. It’s something I use to make in school all the time and brings back so many fun memories. For this diorama I used the Squirrel and Daffodils dies from Joset’s latest release as well as some other dies from are from a previous release. Let me show you how I created this diorama!

First let’s create our box. I worked with centimeters, so keep this in mind if you’re used to inches.

Cut these pieces from strong paper:

  • 12,4 cm height x 25,8 cm wide (backside and frontside) 2 times
  • 13,4 cm height x 13,4 cm wide (tray)
  • 14,7 cm height x 14,7 cm wide (lid)

Take the ‘backside’ piece and make a crease in the papier at 1 cm and 13,4 cm.

Do this again with the piece for the frontside. Cut a piece of 10 cm x 10 cm out of both squares. So now you have a piece with two solid squares and a piece with 2 open squares. Behind the open squares I adhered some transparant sheet.

Now we need the piece of 13,4 cm x 13,4 cm to make a tray. Crease the paper from each side at 0,5 cm, and make a small tray.

At two sides on the outside you put some double sided adhesive and adhere the solid squares to it. Decorate these squares with some decorative paper on the inside. I used paper from the Reminiscence Book 2.

Now the best part, decorate the box. I started with the Folded Mushroom, so the box is a bit filled. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink for colouring. As you can see, I made a crease at the bottum.

The whole mushroom was a little bit to high and now I have a strip where I can add some double sided adhesive to adhere this at the box. I also made the cute Squirrel who looks behind his door.

Before I adhere the mushroom I made a chest with some nuts. The squirrel is sitting behind this chest to watch over his nuts.

At the left side there are some bushes, and who is in there with his tail?

When the mushroom is in his place, you get this view. Another squirrel came to sit down and eat his nut.

In front of the mushroom I made a path with stones. These stones are from the sea dies.

When the inside is done, you can adhere the frontside with the windows. Before I adhere the frontside I made a fence and some clouds on the inside. And then it was time to adhere the frontside to the box.

Now we can make the lid. I used a piece of papier 14,7 cm x 14,7 cm and created a crease at 1 cm from each side.

Adhere some decorative paper on top and the backside and the box is almost ready.

The last thing I did was making some daffodils and adhered these at the left en right side of the box.The photo above is made with the lid at the box. The pictures below is made without the lid so there is more light.

Hopefully you liked this post and got inspired. If you make this box, I would love to see your creation in the Elizabeth Craft Design family group.

Thank you for reading and see you soon!

Greetings Lisanne

Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock Stamping

I am thinking of you

January 12, 2022

Hi everyone! It is Lisanne here.

I’m here with a new blogpost. Today I made a little card with the cute cat.

For the card I used the Fitted Hexagons dies. I used the 2 bigger ones for the base and the smallest one for the background. I put some Double Sided Adhesive at the Soft Finish Cardstock and made 5 small hexagons with it. Now I can add some Silk Microfine Glitter, Royal Teal. These hexagons are adhere at the bigger hexagon. As you can see I used one hexagon for half.

For now the background is oke so I can make the cat. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and different colors Distress Ink.

The cat is sitting at the hexagons, but I think it is a lot of white left so I used the fence from the Slimeline Adventure Edges. The fence is a little bit longer than the hexagons.

At least I made a fishtail with the sentiment ‘I am thinking of you’. This sentiment is made with the build you own sentiment stamp set. A great stamp set to create you own sentiment.

At least I add some Distress Ink at the edges of the fishtail and hexagons. Ohh and I almost forgot the Silk Microfine Glitter in the heart. This is the color sea glass.

This is my card with the cute cat from Joset. I hope you like this blogpost and get some ideas.

All the used supplies are here below.

Thankyou for reading and see you the next time.

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink
