It’s Karen here with a fun Bird-Day Party card. I’m obsessed with these FuN birds from Elizabeth Craft Designs and also love cards that have fun folds to them. My crafty mentor is so good at them, and I’m using one of her folds today. I’m combining the fun folds and a fabulous bird for a card I made for my son who just turned 24. The paper is called Manly Man and it is NEW!
Hey Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing with you a beautiful Thinking of You Dragonfly Card. The starting point for my card was the new ModaScrap Dragonfly die, and then by combining different die cut images my card just evolved from there. To create my card, I used a variety of dies from ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio as well as a stamp from Joset Designs. Let me show you how to make it.
This is Selma Stevenson today. Spring is here and it is time for all the little baby birds to be seen, and that was the inspiration for my Spring Happy Birthday card. This is Selma Stevenson today. I hope my project makes you feel happy!

Our dog was a champion before she retired and came to live with us. Her ribbons were fabulous – a pleated rosette around a big padded circle with gold printing at the top, long tails cascading below. They serve as an inspiration for today’s project: Ribbons to make for friends to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion or give as an award to someone who has triumphed over illness or adversity.
I chose Live, Laugh, and Love – A Way With Words dies that are longtime favorites. ‘Live’ goes to the friend who is five-years cancer-free. ‘Laugh’ goes to the friend who brings smiles no matter what is going on. ‘Love’ goes to my husband.
But you don’t have to choose the same dies or sentiments! It’s very easy to customize this project.
Decide what you want to say and size the circles and fishtail ribbons accordingly. Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection offers so many options.
Hi Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing a beautiful Love & Happiness Wall Hanging. My starting point for my wall hanging was the Ready to Bloom die and the different die cut images just grew from there. I used a variety of dies from ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio as well as a stamp from Joset Designs to make the wall hanging. Let me show you how to make it.

It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share with you a teen boy birthday card idea. My son recently celebrated his birthday and this is the card I made for him. It is fairly easy to make and by changing the colors you can easily create a card for a teen girl using the same idea.
Hello out there my crafty friends. It is Christine here from Susan’s Garden Design Team. Today I am posting a card I made featuring Susan’s Garden Notes Pansy die along with her Garden Notes Ivy Vine. The color of the pansies comes from a photo I saw on Facebook last year that I fell in love with and the wooden box is because I love rustic, primitive things.
Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller here today. Have you ever had an idea that you just couldn’t let go of until you’ve made it? Well, that’s my project today. I issued a challenge to myself to make an Easter Bunny from Elizabeth Craft Designs dies in my collection that does not include a bunny. I’ve used lots of different shapes – hope you enjoy my “self-challenge.” If you decide to try it, I’d love to hear from you.
