Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my March Calendar and Important Dates Tag.
Have you seen the new release from Esther Glass for the Planner Essentials Line? Well, both pages feature some of the new products that are now available from the new release! On top of using the new Planner Essentials release from Esther Glass, I’ve used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs as well as patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
To start, I will share with you how to recreate my March Calendar Page.
Step 1. Die cut the Planner Page from the Planner Essentials 3 set out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance Powder over 1/4 of the way from the top of the page. Spritz with water. Once the page has dried, apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Monthly stamp from the Bullet Journaling 3 stamp set and stamp onto the tab of the page. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the ‘XXX’ stamp and stamp in the bottom left and top right corner of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3. From the Blackboard Alphabet Die, die cut the word March out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 4. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the page. Adhere the March word to where the magenta nuance is. Place the Sun. to Sat. stamps, from the Schedule stamp set, onto a stamp block. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the days of the week and stamp underneath the March word.
Step 5. To finish the page, add the corresponding numbers underneath the days on the calendar as well as add black markings around the March word.
With your March Calendar Page done, I will share with you how to recreate my Important Dates Tag.
Step 1. Start by die cutting the tag from the Planner Essentials 7 die out of kraft cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the letter stamp, from the Patterns 2 stamp set, stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and then stamp onto to your tag randomly. Repeat the previous step six more times to your tag. Distress the edges of the tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the reinforcements circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 3. From the Planner Patterns, die cut the square pattern twice out of black cardstock. Cut the two pieces up into four pieces.
Step 4. From the Stitched Fishtail Banners, die cut the 3/8″ banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the notched side of the die, 2 7/8″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Die cut the 3/4″ banner out of a scrap piece of patterned paper from the Butterfly Dream Paper Pack. Place the notched side of the die, 3 1/2″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Important stamp, from the Bullet Journaling 2 stamp set and stamp onto the white banner. Ink the edges of the important and patterned paper banner using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 5. From the Retro Labels stamp set, you’ll need nine of the labels. Next, you’ll need a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink to four of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the labels. Write on each label as desired. Ink the edges of all the labels using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 6. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the tag page.
Step 7. Adhere the square patterned pieces as desired on the tag.
Step 8. Adhere the Important banner to the patterned paper banner. Foam square the patterned paper banner to the top portion of the tag.
Step 9. To finish the tag, adhere the labels as desired.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my March Calendar Page and Important Dates Tag.

Hey Friends. It’s EK Gorman here today sharing some tags I created using the some of the new critter dies sets.
One of my favorite things about the new critter dies from Joset is that they are so incredibly versatile. What was originally designed for some safari fun, can easily be turned into a bit of everyday birthday day labels. Today, I am taking a few of the new critter dies and turning them into the perfect tags to hang from birthday presents for both the old and young.
Step One: Die cut the piece from the Zebra die set and some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Color the zebra strip die cuts with some alcohol markers. I used N8 copics.
Step Three: Color the hair, tail and hooves with alcohol markers. I used N6, N8, and 100.
Step Four: Color the body, head, legs and ears with alcohol markers. I used N0, N2, and N4.
Step Five: Color the nose and ears with alcohol markers. I used R00, R20, and R22.
Step Six: Assemble the body of the Zebra using Kids Choice Glue.
Step Seven: Using Kids Choice glue, add the zebra stripes to the body. Tweezers help in the placing of these small parts. I used the ones from the 4pc all Metal tool set.
Step Eight: Repeat Steps one through seven, but using the Monkey die set and the Little Chick die set. The Monkey parts were colored with E21, E23, E25, E27 and E29. The Little Chick was colored with Y00, Y02, Y06 and Y08 plus YR15 and YR16.
Step Nine: Die cut balloons, party hats and fun party accessories from the Party Accessories die set. Color them with alcohol markers. I used RV00, RV02, RV04 and RV06 for the pink accessories, R05, R24, R29 and R89 for the red accessories, Y21, Y26 and Y28 for the gold crown, B12, B16 and B18 for the blue balloon, and N4, N6, and N8 for the black mustache. Adhere the accessories to the critters with Kids Choice Glue.
Step Ten: Trim a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock, True Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then die cut the top of the tag from the Tags & More Lattice die set. Trim off any excess paper.
Step Eleven: Add the lattice die cut effect to both the top and the bottom of the tags using the Tags & More Lattice dies.
Step Twelve: Add tag reinforcements from the tag die set to the top of the tags. I mixed and matched paper colors to add a bit of whimsy to the card.
Step Thirteen: Adhere the critters and party accessories to the tags. Stamp a sentiment onto each tag using the Safari Sayings sentiment stamp set. Finally, add some colorful ribbon to the top of each tag. I also added some glossy accents to the top of all they party accessories so that the accessories were shinny.
Thank you for peeking in today to my project today. I hope you think they are as much fun as I do. Make sure to share how you are playing with the collection of new critter dies over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page.
Until then, happy crafting!

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you how to create a cute gift tag that’s perfect to add to any gift or gift bag!
To create this gift tag, I’ve used the brand new dies from Joset Designs as well as dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Step 1. Cut a piece of White Cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″. From the Tags 9 & More – Sparkle die, place the round tag topper with hole cut out at the top of the cardstock tag. Run through die cutting machine. From a scrap piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the reinforcement circle. Adhere the reinforcement circle overtop of the hole on the tag. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance over the left hand side of the tag. Spritz with water. Ink the edges of the tag using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Set tag aside to dry.
Step 2. From the Party Accessories die, die cut the balloon elements and one of the party hat elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Lucky Clover Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon and solid hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon string and top of the party hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted party hat.
Step 3. From the Monkey die, die cut all of the elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Ground Expresso Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey head, tail, body, arms and legs. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey ears, face, hands and feet. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Black Soot Distress Ink over the entire surface of the eyes. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire surface of the banana.
Step 4. Die cut the 1 1/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the banner down to 3″. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the birthday sentiment from the Safari Sayings and stamp onto the banner. Ink the edges of the banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 5. Adhere the monkey together. Add the mouth in by drawing it in with a black pen.
Step 6. Adhere the banana underneath the monkey’s right hand. Adhere the ballon together and then adhere it to the left hand. Adhere the party hat together and adhere it on an angle on the monkey’s head.
Step 7. Foam square the birthday sentiment 1/2″ from the bottom of the tag. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the monkey to the left of the birthday sentiment.
Step 8. To finish off the gift tag, tie some twine through the top of the hole on the tag.

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again. I am very honored to be able to continue as a guest blogger here at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog bi-monthly this year. As my very first project for this year, I´d like to share a fun love-themed present set with you.
Here is what the finished project looks like:
Here is what I did:
Step 1: Die cut the light purple polka dot paper with the present box with the Pillow Box with Handle die. Also adhere the same paper as a background piece to a white card base.
Step 2: Die cut the jar, the hearts, the tag and the straw from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Summer Drink die cut die set.
Step 3: Now die cut the flamingos also from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Flamingos die cut die set.
Step 4: Die cut a blue background piece from the Fly & Scrap paper collection papers with the Stitched Rectangles die.
Step 5: Using Distress Inks color the flamingos, the jar, the hearts and the straw. I used mainly various pink tones and an ink blending tool for this step. Stamp a sentiment onto the jar tag.
Step 6: Build the box, then assembly the flamingos and the jar together and adhere on place.
Step 7: Decorate with a matching colored ribbon.
I´ve also recorded a process video for your to watch to give you a better idea on each an every step. Hope you enjoy it!
This is all from me for today. This type of love-themed project is perfect for so many occasions. Depending on the colours you choose, you can create something for Mother´s Day or for a Wedding or for a baby shower even!

February!…the month of love and romance! Hello. It’s Samantha sharing my You Complete Me card using Elizabeth Craft Designs Puzzle Heart die and Love Sentiments Stamp set. February happens to be my Wedding Anniversary month – so for me, it’s a doubly romantic time of year and a wonderful excuse (not that I need one) to create cards for the heart.
Step 1: Die cut the two piece Puzzle Heart die using pattern paper and corrugated card stock.
Step 2: Adhere the detailed puzzle pieces to the corrugated heart.
Step 3: Stamp the sentiment on Kraft card measuring 7 cm x 2 cm.
Step 4: Adhere the heart and sentiment to a 10.5 cm x 15.5 cm Kraft card front.
Step 5: (Optional) Add a detailed machine stitched border (using a combination of straight lines and zigzags).
Step 6: Using scissor, cut any left over pattern paper and corrugated card into small uneven strips and adhere these as shown to your card front.
Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock (measurement 3cm x 3cm).
Step 8: Die cut one heart puzzle piece.
Step 9: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 10: Use foam tape to adhere this puzzle piece to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to a A6 card base.

Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller with you today and I have a fun project to share.
First of all, I must tell you that this is not my original idea –– I saw it on Mixed Up Crafts with Samantha. She made her box from scratch and decorated it with a fairy. I decided to up-cycle a box from my stash and am so pleased with the way it turned out!
Here are a few photos of the box that any child (or adult) would enjoy receiving. Below, I have also provided a complete step by step video of the project as well as the links to all the Elizabeth Craft Designs products I used.
Watch the video tutorial below!
This is a fun and easy way to give a gift that is sure to be a hit! Hope you will give it a try.
See you soon,
It’s Joset here today sharing this super cute Zebra Pop-Up card. I really love the General Pop-Up dies, they are so fun and versatile! You can really turn almost any die into a pop-up. Today I decided to use this cute little zebra and make a “Love you just the way you are” card. Make sure to check out this video HERE that I created a while ago showing the General Pop-Up die set.
- Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90LB measuring 8 1/2″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″. Make sure the textured side is on the inside of the card.
- From the Adventure Edges 1 or 2 die set, use the cloudy looking edge to die cut a stencil. I used a piece of leftover backing from the ECD Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets.
- Create a cloudy background on the inside of the card (top part) using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a round Mini Ink Blending tool. For more info on how to create the background, click on this VIDEO.
4. Cut another stencil using the grass edge die from the Tree die set (or use the grass edge die from the Adventure Edges 1). Using the same technique as above, create a grass background on the bottom part of the card using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. Start from the top with Twisted Citron and work your way down. I used Mowed Lawn at the bottom 3 rows of grass.
5. Using the bottom left pop up die from the picture below, die cut a pop up in the middle of your score line. For more info, check out the video HERE.
6. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90LB measuring 9 1/4″ x 12″ and score at 6″. This card will be used to cover the whole of the pop up. Adhere your pop-up card on the inside. See picture below.
Now it’s time to decorate your pop up!
7. Cut a grass boarder from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Adhere the grass boarder to the bottom of your card.
8. Create your zebra and adhere to the pop-up. For more info on how to create the zebra, watch this video HERE.
9. Cut a heart from white cardstock using the second smallest heart die from the Fitted Hearts set. Stamp sentiment with black ink. Color heart with Festive Berries Distress Ink. Adhere to card as shown.
- Decorate the outside of the card.
- Die cut a rectangle from white cardstock using one of the Fitted Rectangle dies. Adhere on the grass part of the card to write a note.
I hope you enjoyed creating this card as much as I did.
