Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today! I have a fun card to share with you combining a Do It Yourself Background and the Circles Background Stamp. Below are the steps to replicate this card/technique.
Hello to all! This is Anita here today.
Belated Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends at Elizabeth Craft Designs!!! I hope you had super fun shopping for your craft goodies at the ECD store on Black Friday, and maybe my project will entice you to do a bit more…
I had awesome fun creating cards with the recently release Abstract Background. There are many creative ways that you can use this die and I want to share some of the ways now. (You can use them in your own way and I would love to see what you create with them, so if you’re not already part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Facebook Family, please join in.)
Here is my take for using one background die in three ways.
Hello there! It’s Riikka here today with another guest project! Or actually two, as always. Today I have a double treat as there’s this layout with a step by step tutorial and a card with video tutorial! Both of the projects are done with a winter theme or vibe. Both of the projects have a blue, white, grey color scheme, white splashes, and snowflakes. I also tried to add the winter vibe using Silk Microfine Glitter as frost and twinkly snow.
The layout is about the last princess birthday my younger daughter had. It was almost two years ago. Since then she’s gotten more into football and skateboarding. The Elsa dress I did for her for that 5th birthday fit well with the winter theme well, and she’s also a child of winter.
The Die Cut and Coloring Design Teams are back today with another fun Designer Challenge to share with you.
This time around our challenge is Gift Giving – There are many times throughout the year when we need to give a gift to someone ….

Hello everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with my final post of the year for Susan’s Garden Design Team. It’s been a wonderful year working with Susan’s beautiful flower dies as well as many other Elizabeth Craft Designs products. I’ll surely miss it, but look forward to seeing all the new designs from this amazing company and hope to come back to visit as a guest designer in 2017. Today I’ve created a masculine card using Susan’s Carnation die to prove that you can use flowers on cards for men, too.
Hello everyone, it’s Sanna here today sharing a Mother´s Day card and present box set with you. For this set I used the Through the Lens – Metal paper series papers with the Fitted Circles, the Stitched Rectangles and the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut dies. This is how I created both the card and the packaging.
Hi everyone, It’s Joset here today sharing this Hello Hot Air Balloons card with you. For this card I used Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Soft Finish Cardstock, embossed with the Clouds Embossing folder to create the background of the card, and then used Distress Ink to color the Hot Air Balloons, Clouds, and Banners. Let me show you the steps that I took to create this card.
Hi! It’s Marsha here today, sharing a scrapbook page I created with the new Els van de Burgt Studio ‘Through the Lens’ patterned paper!
You’ve probably read that Els has shot all the images for these papers herself and some of these were even photographed in the Dutch city that I live in!
My page is about a different city though: Brussels in Belgium. On a beautiful sunny Saturday in September I took a train there to meet up with one of my online friends and she showed me the sights!
Steps to create this page:
1. Create a photo collage.
