Planning for a Baby!

January 5, 2019

Hi there!  It’s Suzanne here today. No, I’m not the one planning for a baby, but I know people who are!  And the great thing about these planner pages is they can become part of an ongoing baby journal!

The new Elizabeth Craft Designs Planners are a great way to expand the use of dies you already have in your stash and allow you to create something completely new.

I love the blues and browns of the Moda Scrap My Little Boy papers and used it for a base for creating this baby shower planner spread. Here is how you can make your planner spread, too!

I’m having so much fun figuring out what to do with my new Elizabeth Craft Designs planner.

Like a true Virgo, I want my planner to be organized and practical – and dare I say it, tidy – so I made my dividers from durable Shimmer Sheetz and added equally durable hole reinforcements die cut from synthetic suede. And yet I want to allow for flexibility so the words I chose for each divider are ones with multiple possible interpretations. This gives me leeway to change what I put in each section. Read on for the instructions and my design strategies…

A Penguin Christmas Tree

December 1, 2018

Hi, it’s Diana with the penguins *again.* I just think they are so adorable and this particular die set just won’t go back in the packaging. It’s a good thing that dies don’t get worn out! For my card today I stacked the penguins to form a Christmas tree while holding onto the words “Merry Christmas.”  How cute are they? Read on to see how I created this card:
