Holiday Season Memories

July 28, 2019

Everything about this card reminds me of Christmas growing up. My Oma would have these beautifully painted wooden Christmas trinkets she brought over from Germany –– and every Christmas they would make their way back into her home bringing Christmas cheer and excitement into the house.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a variety of cardstock and specialty paper die cut all the pieces in the Holiday Birdhouse die.

Step 2: Stamp the sentiment on a kraft card front measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 3: Using red and yellow cardstock cut out 4 thin strips and adhere these to the top and bottom of your cardfront.

Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to your card front.

Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to kraft card stock and die cut the birds from the Holiday Birdhouse die set.

Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Assemble all the die cut Birdhouse pieces to the center of your card front. Embellish card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 cardbase.

Hope you enjoyed this bit of Christmas in July inspiration.

Happy Crafting!

Father’s Day Gift Idea

May 18, 2019

Hello, it’s Sandy here today!

We all know how difficult it can be to come up with a gift or card for the men in our lives, so I’m here to share an idea using my dies and stamps from the Planner Essentials. I love my ECD Planner but wanted to show you another way to use the great elements from this collection.

This fun photo holder can act as a card by folding it up to mail, or as a photo frame to display all of Dad’s favorite photos. It is perfect for his desk because it’s double-sided. I’ve added some small tags to each section so a personal message or information could be added.

This is a fun project –– so let’s get started making it.

I knew that I wanted 5 panels so the first thing to do is cut 10 large tags, 10 small tags and 10 Photo Frames. I have linked all the products below so you can easily find the sets I used. Also needed is 10 black strips of black cardstock to go on the frames behind the word “photo”. 1″ is the perfect height.

The Manly Man Paper Collection from ModaScrap was used for this project.

Assembly of the tags is pretty fast and easy. The black strip was added to the back and then the larger tag was added directly above that. The sizing on these are perfect.

With that completed, the small tags were stamped and decorated using the dies and stamps in the collection. For the final touch I edged all the tags with some brown ink. I then set everything aside to work on the stand.

To make the stand, two sheets of 120# black cardstock were used. The tags are about 3″ wide so the panels measure 3.25″ X 5.5″. I simply scored and folded the cardstock every 3.25″ and left a connecting tab on one end of the first section. When the two panels were connected a tag was positioned on the panel and a pencil line was added where a cut line should be. A few quick snips with the scissors and its ready to go.

Double-sided foam tape was added to each panel so it would stand out from the base. After adding the small tags with a black brad, I laid the panels out for placement.

A couple little trinkets were added from the Tim Holtz collection: the key, the stars and the charm (where 2019 was added).

All that is left now is to add my personal messages, information and photos. I’ll use the same photo frame from the die set to cut the photos so they will fit perfectly.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope this has sparked a few ideas.

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting,

11 Gifts For Mom On Mother’s Day!

May 12, 2019

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mother’s out there!

Today gives us such a wonderful opportunity to honor the women in our lives who raised us, praised us and made us who we are. They certainly have been a huge and important part of our lives!

Along with our Design Team, we put together 11 projects for mom on Mother’s Day –– enjoy!

Kathy Sabarese

To honor my mother, this background with the windmill pays tribute to her PA ‘Dutch’ heritage, and she loved tulips! I’ve put the tulips in Susan’s Garden Watering Can, which has a Mandala geometric pattern of ‘dots’ which are done by Tibetan Buddhists called ‘Dkyil-khor.’ This literally means ‘ that which encircles a centre.’ My dear friend, fellow stamper and tole painter, Barb Pelak, was kind enough to do a pattern on the Watering Can for me! I colored my tulips to match her colors in the pattern.
Happy Mother’s Day mom.  Miss you lots!

Creating Spring Tags For Gift-Giving

March 25, 2019

Hi everyone!

It’s Sara here today. I have a new project for you to celebrate Spring. These tags are made from a recycled paper and die cut with Planner Essential 2 –– they are perfect for all of your Spring giving!

These are the steps to make them:

  • Distress the tags a little bit (as you like it –– this is not necessary)
  • Stamp the flowers from Color My Flowers stamp set with Antique Linen Distress Ink and watercolor them (I’ve used a no-line technique but you can do as you prefer)
  • Once you have all colored, die cut them all and add a drop of Nuvo Crystal Drop in the center
  • Stamp your sentiment from the Spring Sentiments stamp set
  • Die cut the leaves from a piece of vellum using the Leafy Branch 3 die
  • Add all your pieces with glue and mounting tape to create dimension and interest
  • Finish your tags with a piece of rope or ribbon

Hope you like it!

How To Make These Cute Birthday Tag Critters

March 12, 2019

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!
