Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge – March 2018

March 20, 2018

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again! Our Design Team are back this month with lots of inspiration for this month’s challenge … Are you ready?!?!?

Our challenge this month is …..

Frame It – There are so many options to include frames when we are creating either cards, scrapbook layouts or home decor items. For our challenge this month please include a frame of some type when creating your project.

Earlier this year we released two new dies designed by ModaScrap called Happy Frames and Happy Frames XL that some of our Design Team members have used for this month’s challenge. Els shared a Technique Friday with Els a few weeks ago showing how to use these dies. You can find it here.

For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners. 

To enter, simply leave a comment either on the Facebook Giveaway post or this blog post below and answer this question: What Elizabeth Craft Designs dies or stamp sets would you use to frame something on a card, scrapbook layout of home decor item?

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.

    All the cards were such inspiration. So many great ideas with all the lovely cards. I would love to be able to use Garden Scene for some wonderfal cards. I think this would make such lovely layouts. Thank you again for all the inspiration you have shown here.

  • Reply Hermelinda March 21, 2018 at 7:17 pm

    What to frame? Anything, be it a card, scrapbook page or a picture. I have a team of co-workers that enjoy making cards with me and Elizabeth’s designs (dies) make beautiful cards and home decor. I’ve already framed several designs and a picture of our team of card makers. The frame dies made it easy to make a quick frame in various sizes to meet my design needs.

  • Reply Lisa Enos March 21, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    Awesome cards. I would frame the gift wrapped stamps and dies.

  • Reply Norma Bartlett March 21, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    I would have to say the bunny die set. I am in love with it. I tried to order it with my last order, but it was out of stock. I just got a message that it’s back in stock now so I better hurry and get it before it’s gone again. Thanks !! ❤😀

  • Reply Jenny Smith March 21, 2018 at 3:14 am

    The Entwined Circle Die would make a beautiful frame for a card.

    I love the scalloped stitched ovals and rectangles and would use them on cards to frame any of the lovely Garden Notes dies.

  • Reply Janet Gundrum March 20, 2018 at 3:17 pm

    I’d keep to traditional and used Stitched Rectangles, but I think the Stars might be interesting.

    Really like the Flourished Oval – but tend to use ovals/rectangles with edges or patterns more than any other – especially if there are sets and can layer them. Always great designs from you
