Grand Fun

August 17, 2023

Karen here. I absolutely love the Planner Essentials line, and I love even more how one can mix and match from the other lines to create absolutely fun pages. The pages I’m highlighting today are all about my husband’s grand-daughter. So much fun and so sweet. (Sorry for covering her adorable face…)

She took a trip to the strawberry patch with her mom and dad. This page highlights some of the fun they had using Planner Essentials 41 for the page base. I love the perfection of those Strawberry die cuts that I colored with Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.

On the back of the page is another Strawberry, and I added a bit of bright red bric-brac ribbon. I love the leaf reinforcements!

The page base here is from Planner Essential 56 (which is a must-have with all of the fun tickets that are out now!) For the leaf border, I was inspired the ECD Planner Facebook page by another crafter and added flowers from the Florals 9 set to mine. The titles are cut and framed with Stitched and Fitted Circles.

More florals on the back page. I think that the leaves I used are now retired, but the Elegant Leaves 1 would certainly work…. Love all of the variations of reinforcements out there.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

Berry Sweet

May 8, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. Today I am sharing a simple positive motivation card.


Cut and assemble five strawberries from the Strawberry die set. Cut two leaves and both swirls from the Strawberry Die set. I have inked the strawberries and leaves for some added dimension. On the strawberries, I added white gel pen in the debossed berry seeds. Cut a white circle from the Dotted Scalloped Circles die set. Cut a rectangle from pink cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle die set. Cut a rectangle from patterned cardstock from the Fitted Rectangles die set. Cut the word “Berry” from the Planner Essentials 23 die set from the same red cardstock used for the strawberries.

Using a post-it note turn backwards so that the sticky side is up, temporarily adhere the word berry. With finger daubers, add two colors of red ink to create an ombre effect. These are the same two colors of ink used to shade the strawberries in the prior step.

Using the “you’re so sweet” sentiment from the General Sentiments stamp set, stamp the sentiment onto the scalloped circle die cut. I chose to cut my stamp apart so that I could have space for me die cut word. For those that do not wish to cut their stamp, this step could be done with masking off words and stamping them, also leaving a gap for the word “Berry”

Adhere the word “Berry” to the die cut scalloped circle

Adhere the scalloped circle to the patterned rectangle die cut. Then adhere the panel to the pink stitched rectangle die cut 


Adhere the leaves and the two vine swirls to the card panel

Adhere the die cut strawberries to the card panel

To finish off the card, adhere the card panel to a white A2 card base and the project is complete

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!

Happy Holidays Gift Tag

November 24, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Holidays Gift Tag.

To create my Gift Tag, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as a die from Joset Designs and the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift tag at home.

Step One. Choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Worn Wood Paper Pack. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut the small plain circle from the Pizza Box die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Choose a piece of green patterned paper out of the Reminiscence Paper Pack. Die cut the stitched circle from the Pizza Box die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of both circles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut the two swirls from the Strawberries die out of a piece of silver foil.

Step Four. From the Florals 2 die, you’ll need the medium, small and extra small flowers. Die cut the three size of flowers twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of all the flowers.

Step Five. From the Florals 2 die, you’ll need all the leaves. Die cut the two different single leaves twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the two leaf leaf out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of all of the leaves.

Step Six. From the Words 3 – Happy Holidays Die, you’ll need the Happy Holidays words. Choose a piece of Red patterned paper out of the Reminiscence Paper Pack. Die cut the words out of the red patterned paper.

Step Seven. Adhere the white circle to the green stitched circle. Foam square the green stitched circle to the middle of the tag.

Step Eight. Shape all the flowers. Adhere the three size flowers together. Repeat for the second flower. Put a Transp. Glitter/Gold Dot in the centre of each flower.

Step Nine. Shape all the leaves. Adhere two of the single leaves to the top left corner of the tag. Adhere two of the single leaves to the bottom left side of the tag. Adhere the two leaf leaf in the middle of the tag on the left hand side.

Step Ten. Foam square the two flowers over top of where the leaves meet.

Step Eleven. Adhere one of the swirls to the top right of the leaves at the top of the tag. Adhere the other swirl to the bottom left of the leaves at the bottom of the tag.

Step Twelve. Adhere the Happy Holidays words to the right of the flowers as desired. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the top of the tag.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Holidays Gift Tag at home.

Summer Strawberries

October 25, 2020

Hello and Welcome! Samantha here today, sharing this fun summer strawberry card. This is one of Elizabeth Craft Designs new releases which I paired up with the Beach Sentiments stamp set. I’ve had glimpses of hot summer weather and it’s put me in the mood to share this inspiration with you.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut a card front using light pink card measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 2: Die cut the strawberries die with the following pieces of card stock:

Stems: Light green card

Leaves: Dark blue/green card

Strawberries: Various shades of pink card and corrugated pink cardstock

Strawberry Leaf: Dark Green corrugated card

Flowers: Light pink card

Step 3: Arrange and adhere the green stems onto the card front, leaving room for the sentiment.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment using black ink.

Step 5: Optional: Add machine stitched detail.

Step 6: Arrange and adhere the 3x large leaves onto the card front.

Step 7: Use foam tape to adhere the strawberries/Strawberry leaves onto the card front – arranged in a way that they appear to be dangling off their leaves.

Step 8: Embellish the card with the light pink flowers, a few sequins and a pink twine bow. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

Step 9: Lastly, adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to a small piece of cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small circles that adhere to the middle of each flower.

It’s a very happy card and the pink strawberries (versus red) are a nice compliment to the blue/greens in this card. Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.

Happy Crafting!

Just Bee-cause

June 26, 2016


It’s Jacky here. For my project today I have created a Stand Up Card using the new Dotted Scallop Circles and Ovals and Bead Strings 2 dies from Els Van de Burgt Studio. I have also used the Strawberries die set and clear stamps from Joset Designs.

Here’s how I created my card:

Step 1: Cut a piece of Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock measuring 5″ x 11″. Score at 3″ and 5-1/2″. Fold along score lines. Lightly score at 8-1/4″ but do not fold.

Step 2: Cut a piece of Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock of 2 ½” x 5″. Adhere the piece to the bottom of the card base.

Step 3: Using one of the Bead Strings 2 cut 3 bead strips in Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to cutting.

Step 4: Die cut one Dotted Scallop Circle from White Soft Finish cardstock using the smallest Dotted Scallop Circle in the set. Use black ink to stamp ‘Just Bee-cause” onto the circle.

Step 5: Die cut one Stitched Oval from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the third largest die in the set.

Step 6: Die cut one Dotted Scallop Oval from Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock using the second largest die in the set.

Step 7: To create the Strawberries: Die cut one large solid strawberry and one small solid strawberry from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut one large and one small strawberry stamen and one large and one small strawberry overlay from White Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to cutting. Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply the ink, color overlays with Barn Door; color stamens with Mowed Lawn Ink. (Clean the tool between colors.) When ink is dry, assemble strawberries and adhere to card front as shown.

Step 8: To create the leaves: Die cut two strawberry leaves from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the leaves with Mowed Lawn Ink applied with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. For best results, work on top of a non-stick craft mat (or the leftover backing of an adhesive sheet) and start making circular motions with the inked tool while it is on the mat, working toward the edge of the cardstock and then onto the shape (edge to center so the darkest ink is at the outer areas). Tip: Use light hand pressure. You can always add more ink as needed.


Step 9: To create the bees: Die cut two bee bodies from black and yellow Velvet Adhesive Sheets. Die cut wings from White Soft Finish Cardstock. The bee with the open wings will go on the bottom Celadon Green Color piece to create the Stand-up Helper card. Refer to the photo.

Step 10: Assemble card – Adhere the white Stitched Oval to the Green Dotted Scallop Oval.  Adhere the strawberries,  leaves and one bee to the white oval. Adhere the main Oval panel to the lower half of the front of the card. Use 3D tape to add dimension to the small strawberry.  Add Bead Strings accents. Add the second bee as explained in step 9.

I hope you enjoy this project and have a wonderful Sunday!

Hi there! It’s Marsha here today with a fun collage idea!

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Strawberries CollageThe strawberries in my garden are not quite ready to harvest yet, but these strawberry die cuts are just as sweet!

I started this project with a card in mind, but my collage turned out so pretty that I just couldn’t bear to cut it up. I decided to put it in a frame and now I have a happy Summer decor piece instead!

Strawberry Thank You Card

May 6, 2016

Good morning everyone, it’s Joset here. Last week I created a card using the Strawberry die set in combination with the Accordion Fancy Label and Fancy Frame Edges. Instead of an interactive card I decided to use the Accordion Fancy Label die to create a flat 5″ square card with a pretty border. Today’s card is slightly different but it does use the same dies. Let me show you how I created the card.

Shimmer Sheetz Love & Leaves Card

April 17, 2016

By Judi Kauffman

Hello, everyone! It’s Judi Kauffman, back as today’s guest designer with a card that would be perfect for a wedding or un-Valentine (those times when romance is in the air, but it’s not February…). The starring roles are played by the word ‘Love’, a die from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection, and my new best friend – Joset Design’s strawberry leaves die. Supporting roles are played by the 2.75” Stitched Square die and a .25” circle die from one of the Tags & More sets.
