Hello, fellow crafters! Diana here today to ask that you dream big and to have fun while doing it! Personally I find this hard to do as I like my little comfort zone but I’m hoping to be more daring this year and take some risks. And I know some like-minded folks so I though this card would be a great way to encourage one another. As always, I kept it pretty clean but I think that wood grain background photographed by Els really ties it all together. Read on for the instructions on how to make this encouraging card for someone in your life.
Hi and hello! It’s Riikka here with another guest post. This time I have a bunch of cards for you. Since summer is time for all sorts of parties, at least here in Finland, cards may come in handy. We have christenings, weddings, barbecue parties and many other festivities and what could be nicer than bring a handmade card with a little something when attending!
Hanging a wreath on our door at Christmas time is a great holiday tradition. Creating a pretty wreath to decorate a package, or a card, is easy to do using Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s new Garden Notes – Evergreen Wreath die and her new Garden Notes – Small Poinsettia die set. Here is how I created this wreath:
Hi there! Sanna here today, sharing a set of maritime ATC cards.
I love summer, sand and sea and therefore chose to create ATC cards around this theme. The new Joset Designs dies are just perfect for creating such artist trading cards!! Here are the steps on how to create these ATC cards:
Hi there! It’s Marsha here today with a fun collage idea!
The 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!
Hi there, it´s Sanna here today, sharing a set of cards created with the new Lollypop die set.
Again these card ideas started from my previous project, the Lollypop cards. I had a negative piece of white die cut paper on my table, cut with the Lollypop die. I looked at it and I suddenly saw lemons! This is how these cards came together:
Hello!! It’s Wanda Hentges here. I am super excited to be sharing a project using two of the brand new, Spring Release 2016, A Way With Words dies. I’ve made a card but this project could easily be expanded upon and made into a scrapbook page or even a home decor piece. I’ve combined the new words with an altered piece of Through The Lens Patterned Cardstock (Wood) , Susan’s Lilac die and Els’ Small Butterfly.

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!
Hello everyone, it’s Sanna here today sharing a Mother´s Day card and present box set with you. For this set I used the Through the Lens – Metal paper series papers with the Fitted Circles, the Stitched Rectangles and the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut dies. This is how I created both the card and the packaging.
Hi, It’s Sandy Diller here today to share a project with you that is all about using what you already own in a creative way. I just love Els’s new patterned cardstock “Through the Lens”, and I’m always on the lookout for ways to use it. Our grandson is graduating from High School in June and I wanted a way to display his photo that honors the occasion. I found an unfinished wooden frame in my stash that I decided to use.
