It’s Karen here. Valentine’s Day is next week – a day of love! Elizabeth Craft Designs has many wonderful products for Valentine’s Day (and every day). Be sure to check them all out! My card today will be sent to my parents who are away for the winter in a warm and sunny place. Sending love is fun…
It’s the Die Cut Design Team’s turn to share their cards for this month’s Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge.
Our Challenge this month is ….. Anything but a Card – for our challenge this month let’s create a project that is anything but a card. Think along the lines of a home décor item; journaling; tags etc.
For our Challenge today we are giving away ….. two sizes of the Clear Double Sided Adhesive which will include: a pack of the 5” x 12” sheets and a 10 mm roll of tape, in addition we will also give away a pack of the new ModaScrap 12” x 12” Viaggi Vintage Patterned Paper Pack to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: Besides the classic card, what are some project ideas you like to play around with?
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, June 9, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
Now let’s take a look at the wonderful creations our talented Design Team have created for the Challenge this month. For more information about the projects, click on the designer’s name under each project to be taken to the designer’s blog post that will open up in a new window.

Though Valentine’s Day is in the rear view mirror, I kept going with cards that use the ‘love’ die from the Baby Love set. I’m getting ahead for weddings and anniversaries. And I needed a special box for a pair of earrings I’m giving to a friend.
I’m nowhere close to done with that ‘love’ die. I’ve yet to use it with the word ‘Baby’! And I’m still happily choosing patterned papers and cutting leaves and flowers to make more of the Pitcher Cards…
Instead of specific instructions for each project, I’m going to provide some tips, design strategies, and a supply list so you can duplicate the cards as shown.
I hope you’ll use the ideas as a jumping-off point for cards with a similar feel in a totally different color palette or a different size. After all, no two people have the same stash of patterned papers, not everyone likes mixing together as many patterns as I do.
Lace Heart Valentine
by Judi Kauffman
Valentine’s Day is a papercrafter’s idea of heaven! (Not that we ever need an excuse to make cards.) The minute I saw the Lace Heart die from the ModaScrap collection I was ready to roll…
This is a super simple project. The card is flat instead of folded so you’ll need to choose whether to punch holes at the top and add twine or ribbon and a bead for a hanging loop, or skip the holes and send a Card Stand/Easel so it can be displayed on a mantel, desk, or table.
A warm welcome to the ECD blog. I am Anita here with my first post and before I begin, I would love to thank Elizabeth Craft Designs for including me in the team. It’s just been a few days and I am already loving it around here.
The new year has brought in many new and amazing dies and stamps and you will surely love them. I especially like the Valentine’s Day collection. It has all the beautiful designs to pep up your projects for the season of love.
Today, I am showing you my most favourite Lace Pocket die. I have used this to create a Notecard Box that will hold cards and I loved the idea of creating a lacy box to give it a very feminine look. I have made it in purse style.
Do have a look at my creation, followed by more pictures to show how I made it.
We are excited to be bringing back our Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenges for 2017! On the first Tuesday of the Month starting in February we will be holding our Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge. Our Coloring Design Team Designer Challenge will be held on the third Tuesday of each month. (For January, our challenges will both be held a week later than the rest of the year.)
For our first Designer Challenge the theme is “From the Heart”. The Die Cut Design Team will be creating a card or project that incorporates any of our heart dies. Valentine’s Day is next month but hearts can be used for so many more occasions than just Valentine’s Day.
Many of the designers’ projects have been created using the new dies in the new Els van de Burgt Studio Valentines Collection or the ModaScrap Collection. Both are available for purchase on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website now.
