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 simple card idea that can be reproduced easily for Christmas! I often use non traditional colors for Christmas as they make me happy!
Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a project that would be good as a keepsake or a gift. I was in my local craft store a few weeks ago where I saw the cutest little box that contained a photo album. I thought I would give it a try using my own measurements and decorations. We recently took a trip to the beach so I thought this would be a good way to save some fun photos.
Hi Everyone! It’s Karen here. Have you ever looked at the number of die shapes available at Elizabeth Craft Designs?! Hearts, stars, fishtails, squares, circles, octagons – the fun never ends! I combined several to make a card today, also using the Row Houses and Home Sweet Home Clear Stamp sets.
Hello there, it´s Sanna here again with another guest design team post. I have been wanting to use the Jungle Cuties stamp set for a while now and found that the stamps perfectly fit a cute style ‘Welcome Baby’ card theme. So, today´s post is all about cute Welcome Baby cards.

Planning a wedding or other big event? Need to keep track of invitations sent and RSVPs received, the menu and other aspects of the special event? Give some inexpensive composition books a facelift and you can do it in style!
To customize the books for use as a journal instead of a planner, incorporate the word ‘Courage’ or ‘Memories’ or ‘Faith’ or ‘Make a Wish’ instead. And ‘Special Day’ remains a good choice for journals as well as planner books. Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection has so many wonderful options.

It wasn’t love at first sight, but the 4 Seasons die set ended up becoming a favorite! (Suzanne and Els, you two were right, it’s so versatile!) I’ve used it on calendars and in planners and journals, and it has appeared on many, many cards. Today’s tutorial adds seven more to the count. They’re all super easy, and as I always say: Easy isn’t cheating!
I’ve chosen the Spring and Summer dies to help usher in the next two seasons, but these projects could easily be customized for Fall and Winter later in the year. Just change the papers and embossing folders to leaves, snowflakes, and other wintry themes.
Beginners: I’ve added some tips especially for you. Keep scrolling – you’ll find them after the instructions!

What do you do with pieces of cardstock and paper filled with random brushstrokes, sheets used to wipe excess paint off of brushes before washing them? What do you do with the little bits and pieces of cardstock that fall out of die cut words (the negative pieces), and what do you do with the larger pieces that surrounded the words?
Make CARDS, that’s what! Care to join me?
