Hello my friends
A warm welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. It’s Pavitra here and today i have a gorgeous card to share with you. I created it for a special friend, using the Dahlia from Susan’s Garden.
Dahlias are such versatile flowers, they come in various colors and with Susan’s dies it is so easy to create them. For this card I chose various shades of pink.
Hello!! It’s Wanda here today to share another project using the A Way With Words dies. Today I’ve combined part of an older set (“Thinking” from “Thinking of You”) with a new set (“Warm Thoughts”) to create a card perfect for sending to someone needing encouragement. Add a hand-written note to the inside and it is sure to brighten their day considerably.
Hi there! It’s me Riikka from the Paperiliitin blog here guesting again! This time I created two pages for the post using the same idea. The first page is about my younger daughter and the second one about a workshop trip.
Hi, It’s Kelly Booth here….
I often find myself needing thank you cards and know they make a perfect little gift or pick me up to give to friends. My card set today is a very simple one done with just a few dies and one of my favorite layering stencils by Karen Burniston.
Hello my crafty friends! It’s Raquel Mason here today. I was inspired by Karen’s April Designer Challenge where she converted a pop stand into a box pop up. I wanted to incorporate a few new items from Karen’s latest release too into my Pop Stand conversion “Welcome little one” baby card. Let me show you how easy it is to convert a pop stand into a box card that’s cute as a button!

Hi there and Happy National Scrapbook Day! It’s Riikka here from Paperiliitin guest designing! I’m so excited to be here and play with the Elizabeth Craft Designs products! I’m a mixed media crafter and first started by experimenting with different mediums in my layouts. So I thought I’d do a page of this kind for my post.
Good news! For those of you who want to give this scrapbook layout a go, Elizabeth Craft Designs is helping celebrate National Scrapbook Day by offering a kit that gives you all the ECD supplies you need to make this page. Oh, and free shipping all weekend…
The topic of the page is my older daughter and the funny hat she is wearing. The picture was actually taken last Halloween, but it could also have been from May Day as my daughter’s preschool had “wear a funny hat” day then.
As well as the photo, I took inspiration for this page from Els van de Burgt Studio’s Ribbons 1 die set as I immediately saw it as a design element for a scrapbooking page. Let’s get started!
Hi friends, it’s Caz here for another Pop it up Wednesday, and today’s project is something a little different for me, but something I really enjoyed creating.
I recently made a canvas for this month’s Pop it Ups Designer Challenge and I thought it would be nice to share another one with you so you may be inspired to create your own.
Hello my crafty friends! It’s Raquel Mason here today. Lucky the Rabbit can be used for any occasion, like say a birthday card. I would like to show you how to double the Spiral Circle Pull Card so you can use all the fun stamps that come in the Lucky Birthday Clear Stamp set. Let’s get started!
Hello!! It’s Wanda Hentges with you today. We’ve had a lot of really cold weather in Southern Iowa and it’s nice to think about warmer days, maybe by the ocean, walking along picking up shells and enjoying the sunshine. The A Way With Words Dream die, cut from a “dreamy” color of Shimmer Sheetz, combined with the new Swirly Flourish Stage it Stencil from Karen Burniston (a design that makes me think of waves on the sea), Seashells from Joset Designs, and a rope from Ropes 1, a new release from Els van de Burgt Studio, make for a wonderful card. It sends the mind off on thoughts of a day by the seaside.
It’s Frances Byrne here with my first Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial for 2016. Karen Burniston released a number of new Pop It Ups dies last month, one of which was the Cup Pop Stand Card die set. One of the dies included in the set is a half circle die used to create the saucer for the Pop Stand Card. Looking at this die I knew that it would be perfect to use to create a Lever Card or Inside Out Card, the name we called it when making this style card 25 years or so ago. Of course it is always easier to make cards when you have a die to help you, and I so love when you can find another use for a die other than the original intention.
