Wishing You Well!

July 22, 2018

Hello crafters! I’m Diane Prince and this is my first time as a Guest Designer for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I got inspired to do the following card by the wonderful surroundings of the little cottage we rented this summer. The pathways through the woods around the cottage have been landscaped by the religious community that owns the land. They have set up small areas with flowers, benches, bird houses, etc., where you can pray, meditate or simply relax. While walking my dog I came across one of those areas where there is a lovely wishing well filled with flowers and I knew right away that I needed to capture that scene in a card with some of the wonderful dies from Susan’s Garden. Here’s how I got to “Wishing You Well” –

Summer Poppies

July 15, 2018

 

Hi everyone! Angela here as guest blogger this morning. I am sitting at the cottage in what is now a sunny and hot Northern New Brunswick, Canada. However, until very recently is was unseasonably cold, which means gardens are late. Poppies are just blooming here, so they are my inspiration today. From Susan’s Garden Notes dies, the Poppy 2 die makes it easy to replicate these gorgeous big blooms.  I’ve added some Baby’s Breath as well as Berry Spray and some Ladder Fern to complete the arrangement.

CAS Miss You with Coreopsis Flower

July 14, 2018

Hi!  It’s Diana here today to share with you another clean and simple card I made with the Miss You die by A Way With Words and my latest acquisition of Susan’s Garden dies: the Coreopsis.  I don’t know about you but every flower evokes a different feeling or memory.  Roses make me think of my mom, red roses and white daisies make me think of my husband, and today’s flower, the coreopsis makes me think of my childhood.  When I was 6, I had a birthday party and two of my dear cousins brought me a bouquet of the lance-leaf coreopsis.  They are the very first flowers I received and though I’m pretty sure now that they were wildflowers picked in some field, I love them the same!  Flowers are flowers.

But back to my card, this is another one that I think can be easily modified to suit you and would work with any of the many flower dies Elizabeth Craft Design carries.  The Way With Word dies work beautifully with them.  Read on for the instructions:

Birthday Peonies

June 26, 2018

 

Hi everyone! Angela Whelton here as your guest designer. Today’s card is one that I’ve made for my daughter’s birthday. Her favourite flower is the peony …so of course I had to go with Susan’s beautiful Peony 2. I’ve also used several of her new dies including the Forsythia and the Frosty Fern. The Frame It Stitched Ovals provided just the right shape for the background.

Hi everyone, it’s Luciana here and I’m so happy to be back on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to share a layout that I created thinking of wildflowers and celebrating my passion for tea infusions.

The project evokes a summer table seen from above, with a cup of tea, a spoon and some wildflowers with their scattered petals.
