The Planner Essential line is perfect as a monthly agenda, mini scrapbook, junk journal, and more –– but, did you ever think to use the line in another creative ways?
For this mini journal, Esther used the large ticket die from the Planner Essentials 11 die set (1655) for the pages. Then, she binded it! You could, of course, choose any method of book-binding you’d like.
We love it when people think outside the box when using our products! Isn’t this mini journal cool? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
The newest Planner Essential collection included 8 new stamps and 8 new dies sets, with Christmas and cooking themes! We also released 3 new planner colors alongside this collection! Take a look at some of them below!
Good morning, crafters! Today, we’re sharing these beautiful pages created by DT member, Charlene van der Vorst.
Using dies from the Planner Essentials line, along with a few other from ECD, she shows us how we can easily create pages with beautiful watercolors and a see-through acetate window!
We are in love with this little owl too! Did you know that Charlene designed it? In the last Planner Essentials release, Charlene designed two stamp sets: Moments of Life and Pure Spring, where this cute owl is from. We can’t wait to show you what she’s working on next! (Soon!!)
Charlene hosted a live video tutorial on her Facebook page, showing us the step-by-step of how she created this beautiful tag. (Note: this tutorial is in Dutch, but she does a fabulous job showing every step!)
It’s already August, crafters! We can’t believe it! (… there are only 146 days until Christmas… 😱)
Our Design Team has been working hard all year, creating projects just for you! You can find many of them right here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog, but they also post tons of inspiration on their own blogs and social media.
You may have missed some of those, so we’re sharing 16 of our favorite projects of 2019 so far!
