Leaves of Gold – Layout and Card by Riikka

August 6, 2017

 

Hello everyone! How are you? Can you believe it’s August already? Luckily it’s only the start so it still feels like summer, but autumn will soon be slowly creeping in. Not that I have a problem with that. I rather like the beginning of the autumn with the long, warm evenings and the golden light that makes the pine trees appear to be deep red. And the leaves, the colorful leaves that start to turn to red, orange, yellow and gold and then rustle under your step. A wonderful time!

This time I did a layout to celebrate autumn and a card using the same techniques. Add a dandle or two to turn it into a birthday card, or send it just to make someone’s day, no special occasion needed!

Let’s get started with the tutorial so you can make your own golden leaves to greet autumn!

Teddy Bear Father's Day Card

Masculine cards can sometimes pose a challenge and since Father’s Day is right around the corner, I thought I would combine some of the adorable new ModaScrap patterned papers with some of the Teddy Bear Picnic stamps to create a card that any dad would love.

Springtime with Riikka

March 5, 2017

Hi there again! It’s Riikka here with spring feelings! There’s still snow on the ground here, but the sun is shining more and the ever increasing amount of light really marks the start of springtime! Soon the birds will begin to migrate north and blooms will emerge and… well, it’s a wonderful time of the year!

To celebrate springtime, I made some ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) using green and brown – brown for the earth, soon to be revealed when the snow melts, and and green for the new plants emerging. I also made a layout using the same colors and dies and other supplies, but first let me show you how I made the cards!

Mixed Media Scrapbook Page

May 7, 2016

By Guest Designer, Riikka Kosavin

Hi there and Happy National Scrapbook Day! It’s Riikka here from Paperiliitin guest designing! I’m so excited to be here and play with the Elizabeth Craft Designs products! I’m a mixed media crafter and first started by experimenting with different mediums in my layouts. So I thought I’d do a page of this kind for my post.

Good news! For those of you who want to give this scrapbook layout a go, Elizabeth Craft Designs is helping celebrate National Scrapbook Day by offering a kit that gives you all the ECD supplies you need to make this page. Oh, and free shipping all weekend…  

The topic of the page is my older daughter and the funny hat she is wearing. The picture was actually taken last Halloween, but it could also have been from May Day as my daughter’s preschool had “wear a funny hat” day then.

As well as the photo, I took inspiration for this page from Els van de Burgt Studio’s Ribbons 1 die set as I immediately saw it as a design element for a scrapbooking page. Let’s get started! Continue Reading

Spring Flower Cards

April 14, 2016

Hello everyone, Sanna here with my first April step-by-step card project post. They say that April showers bring May flowers. Well, I took an early start with a bright and flowery card set. I again used both the positive and negative pieces from the die cut images for creating my cards. I´ve used the Crystal Flower Set 1 and the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 on my cards and there is even a little bit of the Through the Lens – Wood Series patterned cardstock on my second card.

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Sandy – Tea Time

February 17, 2016

Hi, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a gift I made for a friend who likes tea.  I constructed this box, with a drawer, using chipboard but you could do the same thing with any box, simply by covering it with patterned paper. The top folds flat for mailing and then pops up for use in the kitchen.  I combined the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die with the Cup Pop Stand to create a cute and useful gift.

 

Here’s how I did it.  Let’s get started!
