Hi there! It’s Sara here today, and I have a new project for you featuring ModaScrap products.
I love watercolors and it’s always a good occasion to try something new: today I die cut all the pieces from a piece of watercolor paper and then coloured everything with watercolors.
Here are the steps:
- Prepare a base for your card and add some splatters with a black ink.
- For the belt you need to partial die cut a piece of kraft cardstock, put your cardstock in the big shot leaving outside the finish part of the die and the rest of the cardstock, repeat the same process on the other side.
- Die cut all the leaves and the poppies, colour them.
- Glue all the pieces down to the belt and add a bow made with rope.
Hope you like it!

Hi everyone! It’s Sara here today and I have a new project for you featuring some of the ModaScrap products.
These three small boxes were created to contain three small gifts but, if you like, you can also use them as nameplate. They can be easily adapted to your purpose!
Here are the steps to make them:
- Die cut three Triangle boxes by ModaScrap and assemble them with Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
- Die cut three circles from the Dashing Circle die set on a piece of watercolor paper.
- Stamp the floral wreath from the Wedding Sentiment stamp set by ModaScrap on to the circles.
- Watercolor the flowers and the leaves with the colors you prefer.
- Add the letter you need with the same watercolor paint and a fine liner brush.
- Add the circles with some foam tape
- Have fun!!

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again. I am very honored to be able to continue as a guest blogger here at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog bi-monthly this year. As my very first project for this year, I´d like to share a fun love-themed present set with you.
Here is what the finished project looks like:
Here is what I did:
Step 1: Die cut the light purple polka dot paper with the present box with the Pillow Box with Handle die. Also adhere the same paper as a background piece to a white card base.
Step 2: Die cut the jar, the hearts, the tag and the straw from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Summer Drink die cut die set.
Step 3: Now die cut the flamingos also from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Flamingos die cut die set.
Step 4: Die cut a blue background piece from the Fly & Scrap paper collection papers with the Stitched Rectangles die.
Step 5: Using Distress Inks color the flamingos, the jar, the hearts and the straw. I used mainly various pink tones and an ink blending tool for this step. Stamp a sentiment onto the jar tag.
Step 6: Build the box, then assembly the flamingos and the jar together and adhere on place.
Step 7: Decorate with a matching colored ribbon.
I´ve also recorded a process video for your to watch to give you a better idea on each an every step. Hope you enjoy it!
This is all from me for today. This type of love-themed project is perfect for so many occasions. Depending on the colours you choose, you can create something for Mother´s Day or for a Wedding or for a baby shower even!

It’s Sara here today, and I have a new project for you –– it’s a bit different from my standards because I find so difficult to make a CAS card. So here is the challenging part: I’ve decided to use only dies and patterned paper to make these two cards.
Here are the steps:
- Prepare two card bases with White Soft Finish cardstock, two panels 1/2” smaller than the bases and two rectangular patterned panels from “Relax in the garden” ModaScrap paper pad; cut with Dashing Rectangles to make the up and lower side a little bit decorated.
- Die cut with Leafy Branch 3 and Pair of Leaves 2 a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
- Cut out two small pieces for the sentiment and stamp the “just for you” sentiment from the Gift Wrapped stamp set. Add the banner as shown in the photos and sew the left side with sewing machine to add a little of interest there.
There are some more photos for you here:

I thought it would be fun to make ‘His & Hers’ treat boxes for Valentine’s Day, but as soon as I came up with the title for the tutorial, I had to chide myself and ask this question: Why do some colors get defined as masculine and others as feminine? And why is Valentine’s Day usually pink, red and white?
Color is not assigned the same way in all cultures (the Indian weddings I’ve attended prove that the groom doesn’t have to be the guy in a black tuxedo!) and it’s certainly not the same for all species (Mr. Peacock and Sir Rooster look more like what we in Western cultures think of as red-carpet-ready than their partners, Ms. Peahen and Mrs. Chicken, don’t you think?).
I leave it to you to decide whether one of these boxes looks like it’s for the men and boys in your life and the other for the women and girls.
Meanwhile, I’m going to make lots of boxes from ModaScrap Wood Effect and Rainbow Bark cardstock, label all of them with the word LOVE (in red, the color we have assigned to romance, love and Valentine’s Day) and fill them with goodies: a piece of candy, a golf ball and tee, a lure for my friend who loves to go fishing (who happens to be a lady over 80), and a pair of earrings for a friend whose birthday falls close to Valentine’s Day.
1. Die cut a treat box from Wood Effect or Rainbow Bark cardstock and the word Love from red cardstock. Optional: After die cutting, alter the cardstock with inks, embossing folders, stamps, cut or torn collage.
2. Assemble the box using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to secure the bottom pieces and side flap. Fill the box and close the top.
3. Adhere the word Love at an upward angle as shown using small dabs of Beacon Kids Choice Glue. To help you position the word, notice that the rounded loop flourishes on the lettering in the die cut word extend past the left, right and top edges of the front side of the box, but the tails of the flourishes below the ‘L’ and the ‘o’ touch the left side and bottom edge. Option: If you don’t like the word extending as shown, fold the loop flourishes as needed and secure to sides and top of the box.
It´s Sanna here with another guest designer post. Have you ever been in a situation when you need a card on really short notice? Or want to quickly make a masculine card? I thought I´d share a few simple ideas I like to use when these occasions occur.
I have created three simple card ideas that can be varied in style by changing the papers and colors or by choosing alternative dies. Here are the instructions:
