Good morning! I just adore these new flower dies – they are full and fabulous and very versatile! I decided to create a beach layout of our boys when they were younger as I am longing for some warmer weather!
To create this layout: Step 1 – Take your favorite ECD paper – I used a sheet from the Worn Wood paper pack – and cover both sides with clear gesso and heat set or allow to dry Step 2 – Use texture paste and your favorite ECD stencil along the right side of your layout – I used a stencil from the Summer Journal Special Step 3 – Die cut, ink and assemble 17 flowers – I used the new flower dies that will be available soon! They are so awesome!
Step 4 – die cut, ink and assemble as many branches/stems/leaves as you wish

Good morning! I am excited to share my next creation for Elizabeth Craft Designs! I am IN LOVE with the new Summer Art paper line and I finally got a chance to create with it….the designs and colors are outstanding!
To create this layout:
Step 1 – cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso ( I used the Summer Art Collection) Step 2 – mix texture paste with a coordinating color of colorant (I chose tainted love teal from Lindys Stamp gang) Step 3 – use your favorite ECD stencil and the colored texture paste approximately 2.5″ or 6 cm from the left hand side of your paper (I used the waves stencil) Step 4 – while texture paste is still wet sprinkle Silk Microfine Glitter at top the image (I used copper)
Step 5 – place two pieces of cheesecloth (1 at least 12 inches or 30.5 cm long and one about 8 inches or 10cm ling) in a resealable freezer bag and color with your favorite mist or powder. (I used Lindy’s magical powders in Cowabunga copper and Hags Wart Orange). Remove from bag with tweezers or wearing gloves and dry with your heat gun Step 6 – adhere the cheesecloth as shown in photos
Step 7 – fussy cut two small flowers, one large flower cluster, a turtle and a set of leaves from the paper and ink the edges
Step 10 – grab your favorite chipboard title and heat emboss twice, on the third embossing sprinkle silk microfine glitter into the while you are heat setting the embossing powder. I do not normally take photos in direct sunlight but I wanted to share the glitteriness of the effect Step 11 – create a photo mat, ink the edges of the mat as well as the background paper. Adhere everything as shown and add some seed beads!
