It´s Sanna here with another guest designer post. Have you ever been in a situation when you need a card on really short notice? Or want to quickly make a masculine card? I thought I´d share a few simple ideas I like to use when these occasions occur.
I have created three simple card ideas that can be varied in style by changing the papers and colors or by choosing alternative dies. Here are the instructions:
I think adding layers of die cuts is a great way to make your photo the focal point of your project, and it will add dimension without adding too much bulk!
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my With Sympathy Card. Although sympathy cards aren’t the first kind of card we all want to create, it’s sometimes one that we do need to take time to make. Using a variety of dies from Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio my sympathy card came together quickly. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Hi Artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a delicate birthday card. We always need birthday cards! Here’s one that’s a little different. By die cutting the Flourished Frame and inlaying all the pieces back in, we can create a more subtle frame that doesn’t overpower the pink and gray. Layer the elements to create more interest and you’ll be creating something really special for someone special!
Here is how you can make it –
I am excited to show you my newest layout for Elizabeth Craft Designs!
I love to make flowers and the fabulous dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs make it easy and fun.
Hi there, Artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a simple, elegant version of Always & Forever.

This card is so simple to make. It took me longer to photograph it than to make it. And the photo really doesn’t do it justice!

Using a variety of dies from Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio, my home decor piece came together quickly. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and normally we think of reds, pinks and whites for this holiday. But being a color person, I decided to go in a completely different direction and create a super colorful card for a bit of an artsy twist on a Valentine. Here’s how I made the card:
Hello there everyone, it’s Sanna here with a Guest Designer project. But first, I´d like to congratulate everyone on the design team. It’s a great team to be part of! I feel very honored to be able to stay here and share crafty projects with you as a guest blogger. Today is my turn to share the first project, so let’s get started.
When it comes to making a Valentine for a man, it can be a bit of a challenge. How do you balance the girly hearts and doilies with a man’s less glittery sensibilities? For today’s project I have tried to do that. There are definitely feminine elements at work in this card, but the color palette and simple images help keep it from becoming too delicate. Here’s how I made the card:
