December 13, 2016

Hello everyone,

It’s Joset here today with another project using my favorite Gingerbread Man. I used this die in combination with the windmills from the Lollypop die set and Silk Microfine Glitter for the background. I created a stencil with the leftover release sheet from the Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Let me show you how I created the background and decorated the card.

Christmas Tree Decorations

November 29, 2016

Hello everyone, It’s Joset here today sharing some fun and easy Christmas Tree Decorations. They are all made out of felt in combination with Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Double Sided Adhesive. I created a guirlande simular to Frances Byrne’s Christmas Banner from last week. For the ornaments I used a few different Christmas/Winter themed dies that I thought would be fun to use but there are many more that would work as well. Let me show you how I created them but first let’s start with the guirlande.

Let it Snow!

October 30, 2016

Hello everyone,

It’s Joset here. Living in heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, there’s no doubt that I love to ski. Today’s card is showing this favorite sport of mine, the one where you need a good pair of skis. When they’re not on the slopes you always see all those pairs of skis in a row, resting an angle and a little messy, and that is the look I wanted to create. Here are the instructions:

Faith, Love, and Thanks – 2 – Die Boxes and a Card

September 11, 2016

9-11-2016-d

By Judi Kauffman

September 11. A day that the world will never forget. The sky was a perfect clear blue over Manhattan, the Pentagon, a field in Pennsylvania. Within minutes it all changed.

Each year I spend time reflecting on what was lost: The flight attendant who lived a few blocks from us, the colleagues of a friend who worked in one of the towers, and all of those I never knew but mourned with a heavy heart. On this day I spend time celebrating the heroism of first responders and ordinary citizens who did what they could to save lives.

And then, I go back to my normal routine, grateful that the sky is still blue, most of the time. That people are wonderful, most of the time. And that there is still creative work to be done. All of the time. Continue Reading

You’re So Sweet Macarons Card

August 16, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I’m very excited to be showing you a card using one of my new designs, the Macarons. I love this French specialty made out of two meringue cookies and a sweet cream filling. They come in so many delicious flavors and I haven’t had one that I didn’t love. In the small town where I live there is no place that sells this cookie but luckily a neighboring town does, so every now and then I treat myself to one. This delicious cookie was the inspiration for the die set and the card that I am sharing today. Let’s get started!

Show & Tell with Els

August 2, 2016

Hello, everyone! It’s Els here and I’m having such a great week that I wanted to share it with you – so not a project and instructions today, but with news from here in Colorado…

Our daughter Joset and granddaughter Annika are visiting. It’s been so much fun watching the two together, and Joep and I are very hands-on – tons of cuddling and stories. Annika even eats black beans, inspiring me to branch out and try new foods so she doesn’t get ahead of me when it comes to adventurous eating habits!

Joset’s here for work, too. We’re taping YouTube videos. Susan Tierney-Cockburn arrived on Sunday to tape tutorials for her new release as well. We’ve got a full house, just the way we like it! Both Joset and Susan will also be guest hosting Technique Friday with Els. We may not sleep at all!

Meanwhile, we hope you’ve already taken a gander at the new releases from Susan and from Karen Burniston. We know you’ll find a zillion must-haves. We’re including some projects here to spark your muse. And be sure to head over to their Facebook pages and blogs so you don’t miss out on a single thing! Karen is posting a YouTube video tutorial every day for a week to showcase her collection.

And I’m excited to announce that the wonderful new collection of dies and stamps from Joset Designs is going to be revealed on August 11th (yes, this is a proud mother speaking) along with Suzanne Cannon’s latest ‘A Way With Words’ dies.

My own Els van de Burgt Studio release will follow on August 25th.

Our design team and guest designers are busily creating projects and writing instructions. Stay tuned! This is going to be a very active and fun-filled time on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and the YouTube Channel as well!

Speaking of active and fun-filled, Annika is ready to go outside and play, and so am I!
