Hello friends, Sandy Diller here, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season. This year will be celebrated a little differently but that is no reason to cut back on the fun of the season. One of my favorite things is decorating the house and I always like adding something new. I had this wooden kit in my stash and have to confess that I started it last year but didn’t finished it until now.
I previously painted the wooden pieces with white paint. I then covered the wooden trees with ECD Double Sided Adhesive.
Once the release paper was removed from the tape I placed three different ModaScrap Christmas papers on the trees. I trimmed the paper down and then used an emery board to sand the edges (sandpaper can also be used). Hot glue was used to attach the trees to the base.
I used lots of great dies from my ECD collection to create some gifts and bows and then cut and assembled the Jack Frost die set to create the cute snowman.
After cutting and assembling the adorable little Elves I added them to the scene using double backed foam tape to pop them out to the front.
One of the final touches was to add a banner across the front after stamping it with the fun greeting.
The last thing to go on was the little gift with the long ribbon. The package is a small wooden square, painted and then ribbon was added.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired you to get creative and decorate your home for the season.
To create this layout: Step 1 – trim a 1.25″ or 3.5cm off of the right side of your base paper and distress the edge. Step 2 – cut a 4.5″ or 11.5cm piece of paper and distress the edges. Use a 3″ or 7cm piece of paper to lay under the base paper to create your 12×12″ or 30x30cm layout like shown
Step 4 – using coordinating papers cut 8 (2 each of 4 sizes) of the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails, distress the edges and layer like shown. Step 5 – die cut 2 – 4 3/4 silhouette circles, distress the edges and trim one in half. Add the whole circle like in the above photo. Step 6 – mat your photo and distress the edges
Hello friends – it’s Sandy back with you to share a fast and easy project that will add fun and sparkle to your holidays. Yes, the holiday season will soon be upon us, whether we are ready or not. We like to entertain and especially during the holidays. I’ve made these fun little luminaries to decorate my dinner table and to use as place markers. They are blank at the moment but as soon as my guest list is final I will add names using a label maker or typing and printing them from my computer. The battery-operated candles last for a few hours so turn them on just before your guests arrive and they will last through dinner.
Shhhhh! It’s Suzanne here today with a Sneak Peek at my new release especially for you!
You can’t imagine how thrilled I am to be sharing this with you! There are so many exciting new things coming and I know you’re going to love them!
Today I’m thrilled to share a first Sneak Peek with a project I created using the Make A Wish die set from my new collection of dies and stamps. The collection will be available to view in its entirety on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and web site on June 5. Not too long to wait!
This card is so easy and you can cut and assemble it quickly if you need! Here is how you can do it.
It’s Joset here today excited to be back as your guest designer. I would like to share with you this easy but fun card that I created using the Stitched and Fitted Stars dies. For the colored background of the card I used Distress Inks and the beautiful Soft Finish Cardstock. Let’s get started.
It´s Sanna here with another guest designer post. Have you ever been in a situation when you need a card on really short notice? Or want to quickly make a masculine card? I thought I´d share a few simple ideas I like to use when these occasions occur.
I have created three simple card ideas that can be varied in style by changing the papers and colors or by choosing alternative dies. Here are the instructions:
So many people have requested masculine cards that I thought I’d head in that direction today. It’s an oversized card meant to hang on the wall, though you could make a smaller size version with only one star. If you plan to mail it in an envelope, skip the bead at the top.
As with almost all papercrafting projects, switching the color combination and a few other elements will give the card a very different look. Choose bright color flowers instead of stars, polka dots instead of wood grain cardstock, or combine pastel butterflies with cardstock printed or stenciled with clouds in soft shades of blue. Voila! The transformation is complete…
One little secret: The die for the word ‘Friend’ has an ‘s’ on the end so you’ll need to do a bit of careful trimming to change it from a plural noun.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Make a Wish Note Card. With the New Year here, you always seem to need birthday cards right away, so why not get a jump start on creating some for your card box. Using a variety of dies from Joset Designs, the Entwined Circles Die from Els van de Burgt Studio and some floral patterned paper from ModaScrap this card came together quickly. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Hello Elizabeth Craft Designs fans! Birgit back with you with my last post for Elizabeth Craft Designs. It’s been such a fun year working with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team and I wanted to send a special thanks to Els and Joep, Joset and Frances for letting me be part of this amazing team for a whole year. Life has just gotten crazy busy for me and it’s taking me down a different path, one that doesn’t allow as much time in my craft room as needed, so here I am with a final project. I’ll miss you all!
