Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Mother’s Day Gift Box. Mother’s Day is only 6 days away, so why not make a pretty gift box for that gift for mom?
To create this gift box, I’ve used dies and patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as dies from Joset Designs. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Step 1. Choose a piece of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Butterfly Dream Paper Pack. Die cut the Star Pillow Box die out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the box using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 2. From the Words 3 – Happy Holidays die, die cut the “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3. Die cut three Leafy Branch 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of each leafy branch. Trim the branches to your desired length.
Step 4. Choose two of the Happy Flowers. Die cut the two Happy Flowers twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, bend Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over the entire surface of the happy flowers.
Step 5. Assemble your Star Pillow Box.
Step 6. Adhere two of the happy flowers together and finish off the center of the flower with a Transp. Glitter/Gold Dots. Adhere the last two happy flowers together and finish off the center of the flower with a Transp. Glitter/Gold Dots.
Step 7. Start by adhering two of the leafy branches on the left hand side of the star pillow box. Adhere the two happy flowers overtop of the leafy branches.
Step 8. To finish off the pillow box, adhere the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment to the right hand side of the pillow box.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Mother’s Day Gift Box.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my March Calendar and Important Dates Tag.
Have you seen the new release from Esther Glass for the Planner Essentials Line? Well, both pages feature some of the new products that are now available from the new release! On top of using the new Planner Essentials release from Esther Glass, I’ve used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs as well as patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
To start, I will share with you how to recreate my March Calendar Page.
Step 1. Die cut the Planner Page from the Planner Essentials 3 set out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance Powder over 1/4 of the way from the top of the page. Spritz with water. Once the page has dried, apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Monthly stamp from the Bullet Journaling 3 stamp set and stamp onto the tab of the page. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the ‘XXX’ stamp and stamp in the bottom left and top right corner of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3. From the Blackboard Alphabet Die, die cut the word March out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 4. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the page. Adhere the March word to where the magenta nuance is. Place the Sun. to Sat. stamps, from the Schedule stamp set, onto a stamp block. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the days of the week and stamp underneath the March word.
Step 5. To finish the page, add the corresponding numbers underneath the days on the calendar as well as add black markings around the March word.
With your March Calendar Page done, I will share with you how to recreate my Important Dates Tag.
Step 1. Start by die cutting the tag from the Planner Essentials 7 die out of kraft cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the letter stamp, from the Patterns 2 stamp set, stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and then stamp onto to your tag randomly. Repeat the previous step six more times to your tag. Distress the edges of the tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the reinforcements circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 3. From the Planner Patterns, die cut the square pattern twice out of black cardstock. Cut the two pieces up into four pieces.
Step 4. From the Stitched Fishtail Banners, die cut the 3/8″ banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the notched side of the die, 2 7/8″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Die cut the 3/4″ banner out of a scrap piece of patterned paper from the Butterfly Dream Paper Pack. Place the notched side of the die, 3 1/2″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Important stamp, from the Bullet Journaling 2 stamp set and stamp onto the white banner. Ink the edges of the important and patterned paper banner using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 5. From the Retro Labels stamp set, you’ll need nine of the labels. Next, you’ll need a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink to four of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the labels. Write on each label as desired. Ink the edges of all the labels using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 6. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the tag page.
Step 7. Adhere the square patterned pieces as desired on the tag.
Step 8. Adhere the Important banner to the patterned paper banner. Foam square the patterned paper banner to the top portion of the tag.
Step 9. To finish the tag, adhere the labels as desired.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my March Calendar Page and Important Dates Tag.
Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller with you today and I have a fun project to share.
First of all, I must tell you that this is not my original idea –– I saw it on Mixed Up Crafts with Samantha. She made her box from scratch and decorated it with a fairy. I decided to up-cycle a box from my stash and am so pleased with the way it turned out!
Here are a few photos of the box that any child (or adult) would enjoy receiving. Below, I have also provided a complete step by step video of the project as well as the links to all the Elizabeth Craft Designs products I used.
Watch the video tutorial below!
This is a fun and easy way to give a gift that is sure to be a hit! Hope you will give it a try.
It’s Karen here. My mom’s birthday was at the beginning of March. I wanted to wait to post her card until I was sure she got it. My mom is the smartest, prettiest, most wonderful woman in the entire world. (I know a lot of you have moms like that!) I wanted to make her an extra special card for her birthday so I used the really cool Gift Wrapped stamps and coordinating dies along with the Butterfly Dreams paper. To jazz it up just a bit more, I added a pop-up to the inside. With the General Pop-Ups dies, it’s so EASY!
This is Anita here. How was your Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Shopping? I am sure you all must have shopped to your heart’s content at the ECD store as there was a fabulous scheme going on.
Today let us celebrate the coming days even more by planting smiles and love with a card made with Susan’s Garden dies and a wonderful sentiment from her stamp collection along with other dies from the ECD line. I chose Love in a Mist, a beautiful flower that I learned to make by watching Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Facebook video tutorial, and I encourage you to watch it so your flowers will be realistic and lovely, just like hers!
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today from the Coloring Team. I am going to show you how easy it is to create your own background using one stamp plus embossing powder. Below you will find the steps to replicate the Flower Power Card.
Hey Everyone! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Happy Happy Birthday Card. The starting point for my card was the fabulous Kites die from Joset Designs. Using the kite die, and combining it with a variety of die cut images from Els van de Burgt Studio and some ModaScrap patterned paper, my Happy Happy Happy Birthday Card grew from there. Let me show you below how to make it at home.
I’ve been feeling very woodland-y lately, perhaps because it is summer in Colorado and there seem to be deer and other critters everywhere. Plus, there’s nothing like a stunning natural landscape to inspire dreams! As a result, I had to make a card using the Birch Forest stamp set. I combined the stamps with some of the new patterned papers, particularly the ModaScrap Butterfly Dream paper. It seemed like the perfect mix for a card with animal friends that are here to encourage your dreams and imagination. Continue Reading
