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!
