This project starts with a Merry Christmas or Season’s Greetings die from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection, a purchased Christmas stocking and pre-made wire-beaded leaves. All of the elements are secured to the velvet cuff with gem glue, ideal for adhering die cut Shimmer Sheetz to fabric.
Babies – ah, I love them! And I love celebrating the arrival of a new bundle of hope, possibility and dreams. Now that I am out of the baby stage myself, I would actually have time to put together a cute little shower for a mom-to-be. There are so many designs you could make for a baby shower with the A Way With Words die sets. I went with the onesies because I just love those – especially since I love squeezing those baby thunder thighs! This set showcases an example of a card for the mom-to-be, the invitations and then also a little gift box. Read on how you can quickly put together a set yourself.
The best thing about winter for me is layering up! I love sweaters and cozy flannels…
Though I am too old for mittens, I’d take them if they were offered to me by someone as adorable as this penguin. I keep using this die set because it is just so cute and so easy to use. Today the penguin is holding a pair of mittens made with a die set from the new A Way With Words release. Did you know that Elizabeth Craft Designs also sells self-adhesive velvet sheets?! It’s a perfect match! This card came together very quickly. In addition to being a fun card to mail, it would be an extra special way to hint at the contents of a gift box containing gloves or mittens!
Hi, it’s Kelly Booth here today with a Colorful Balloon Card using A Way With Words dies. I love color and there is something so magical about watercolor to me. I thought the new Big Balloon die would be a perfect canvas for some fun color blending.
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:

Hello My Crafty Friends,
It’s Christine here today sharing a card I created for my dear friend since high school (my 50th class reunion is this summer, hers was last summer). We now live an hour and a half apart but try to meet halfway for a day of shopping, eating and catching up every so often.
Hi, It’s Kelly Booth with you today. I often need a friendship card or a generic card to send to a friend. Using Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words and a simple flower by Susan Tierney Cockburn are the perfect combination for this! For my tutorial I chose the Friends word die and Susan’s Geranium.
