Wedding Layout With Glitter!

February 20, 2020

Good morning! Laura here today to share another layout I created for my niece’s upcoming wedding!

To create this layout:

Step 1 – Trim one piece of paper to 12 x 10 3/4, ink the edges.
Step 2 – ink the edges of a 12×12 paper and adhere the other paper on top.
Step 3 – die cut 3 of the largest Stitched Indented Rectangle, then die cut one with butterfly spray, ink the edges, add a piece of white cardstock under the butterfly spray and adhere to the papers.

Step 4 – create your photo mat, ink the edges and using 3D foam dots of cardboard adhere your photo mat to your papers.
Step 5 – die cut 4 flowers using your favorite ECD flower die, and assemble. set aside. I used the small flower set and the large flower set. I also decided to create one layer if a flower using the double sided tape and the Ocean Blue glitter from the Beach Palette.
Step 6 – die cut a butterfly – I used the small butterfly – using the double sided tape and glitter for the bottom layer and assemble.

Step 7 – die cut one silhouette circle using the largest and second largest circle in the stitched circles.

Step 8 – die cut one heart from the true love die set using double sided tape and glitter.


Step 9 – die cut 11- 1 1/2″ stitched hexagons from various papers and double sided tape and glitter –– I used copper rose and true red.

Step 10 – die cut one celebration flag using double sided tape and glitter.

Step 11 – assemble as shown.

I typically do not take photos in direct sunlight because it washes out the colors but in order to show the shone of glitter, I did take one which you can see below.

And here is the final layout again.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! You can see the items I used in the link below.

This Is What Matters Most!

February 4, 2020

Hello Planner fans! Today a post from me, Marjolijn. I made a spread in my planner for Valentine’s Day.

For me, ‘Valentine’ means family –– my family. It means my husband and my kids because, that’s what matters most to me. My heart beats a little harder when I see this picture from my love and my beautiful daughters. How blessed I am!

I had a lovely time playing with my Planner Essential Dies –– I love the light bulbs.

I made these pages with the Planner Essentials 20 Half Heart and glued the smaller hearts on the bigger hearts. With black cardstock and golden soft glitter paper I made the light bulbs, and the ‘Love’ word. With a stamp from the set CS125 Patterns 2, I stamped the edge of the small heart. The text is from the stamp set CS121 Remember. Further, I glued the different reinforcers over the rings.

The nice heart flower, from Planner Essentials2 5, I cut in pieces and then placed it behind the pictures. With a few stamps, I finished this page. 

I made this page the same way as the first one. The little word ‘Love’ with the arrow was made with a die from the Planner Essentials 5. With the labels, I made a kind of tag where I wrote a little message on the back and placed it behind the picture.

Another page in my planner, and I’m so happy with how it turned out.

Here, you can see the dies I used.

And here you see the stamps I used.

I hope that I inspired you a little bit with this planner page. See you next time!

Birthday Planner Page Using The Planner Pocket 4

January 28, 2020

Hi planner fans, Marjolijn here. This is my first post for the Elizabeth Craft Design blog!

First I want to say that I’m so proud to be a member of the design team!!! It even gives me more fun to play with the beautiful dies and stamps for the planner.

Today, I’ve decided to make a special page in my planner for a very special occasion: my daughters birthday! I took a lot of pictures that I wanted to use in my planner to remember her 17th birthday.

Here is everything I created for my pocket page!

Look at this, a whole day in one page with cute tags, labels and a large double tag where I placed all the pictures and journaling. And look at that gorgeous birthday cake, my oldest daughter made it as a special surprise for her sisters birthday!

For this page I used the new die sets from the Planner Essentials 22. On the back, I glued the page from Planner Essentials 4.

The page folds together just like the pockets in the collection, folding and adhering the flaps onto your base page, making it look like an envelope. I used the reinforcements from Planner Essentials 7 to secure the other side of the page.

I made two pages from craft paper (size 3 3/8” x 8”) and bound them together with the die from set 22 (see picture below) –– now it’s a double tag!

So now, I have a lot of space for pictures and journaling!

I finished it off by decorating it with stamps and dies. For that I used Planner Essentials 27, the retro numbers trio. Oh, how I love that –– 3 sizes in one set!!

I also used the Planner Essentials Planner Patterns and Planner Months die sets. The stamps are from Pieces of Life 1 (CS160).

As an additional insert, I made a tag with a see trough pocket made from vellum. And a little tag inside it. All made with the Planner Essentials set 26 and stamps from the set CS134.

I love the little banners They are so decorative and fun for birthdays and party’s. Even if they are too big, I role them up and put them in the pocket. Always fun to find them, and you immediately know it’s a special occasion when you do.

I made the banner with the Planner Essentials 26 Retro Numbers Trio set. There are 3 different flags in it in 3 sizes so you can make a lot of different banners for in your planner or other projects! Sometimes I make them and send them with a birthday card! Success assured!

I hope you all get inspired a little bit with this page. It’s so much fun playing with this new dies!!!

See you next time,

Marjolijn

Simple Christmas Layout For The New Year!

January 12, 2020

Good morning! Laura here today to share a simple and quick layout to help you scrapbook your Christmas photos!
I also have a couple of tips for you toady. Here’s the first one:
*tip 1 – all those gorgeous Christmas papers may be a little busy for your style – turn them over and use the other side to coordinate with your favorite ‘busy’ side so the papers don’t clash

To create this layout:

Step 1 – gather 3 sheets of patterned paper – and tear across one sheet at about 8 1/5 inches or 22cm, second sheet tear the bottom off at about 3 inches or 8 cm, then adhere to the your third full sheet
Step 2 – create a photo mat with a torn side about 2 inches bigger than your photo
Step 3 – die cut 3 fitted fishtails, celebration flags and your 2 large and 4 small of my favorite poinsettia die and assemble

*tip 2 – You can use your favorite shape die – I used my stitched circle die – to cut out elements from your Christmas paper to use as embellishments

Step 4 – assemble and add your title!

Thanks for stopping by,

Hello Sunshine –– Summer Dreaming!

December 15, 2019

Good morning! Laura here today! It is very cold here right now and I am missing the heat of summer! Since it is winter and I can’t actually enjoy the summer right now I did the next best thing and created a summer layout!

To create this layout:

Step 1) Cut your papers, 1 at 12×12, 1 at 10×12 and 1 at 11×12 then ink the edges and assemble
Step 2) Die cut 4 circles of varying sizes. I used 5 1/4, 4 1/4, 2 3/4 and 2 1/4 in the stitched circles

Step 3) Die cut one sand castle and one palm tree then ink and assemble

Step 4) Die cut two tags and ink the edges – I used the tag from the planner essentials 7
Step 5 ) Die cut the filmstrip from planner essentials filmstrip

Step 6) Add your title and assemble

Thanks so much for stopping by!

December Day-By-Day Page Ideas!

November 28, 2019

It’s Esther here. December 1st is just a few days away, which means it’s almost time to start your daily #DecemberDBD journaling! (You can learn more about the December Day-By-Day Challenge here.)

Today, I’m here to share some ideas and tips for your #DecemberDBD journal. I recommend trying to add pictures to your pages each day –– from “normal” things like doing the dishes or groceries, and a full/empty fridge. It really doesn’t matter what you take pictures of –– everything you do on a single day is fine. It’s more about documenting each day, whether it’s work, sports, watching tv, cooking diner, babysitting, laundry, etc.

If you find yourself lacking inspiration on a certain day, here’s a list of some themes/ideas that might help:

  • Photo of your craft desk/room
  • Buy yourself a treat/something you really like to eat and try to make a stunning picture of it to use in your journal
  • Your favorite (Christmas) song
  • Decorating your tree
  • A black & white picture
  • Write a letter to Santa and hide it in your journal
  • Take pictures of December decorations in your area, or go to a garden centre or decorated shop to take pictures.
  • Wrapping presents
  • Create a tag
  • Your favorite (feel-good) movie
  • A selfie
  • Your pets or birds and other animals in the garden
  • Donate $5 to charity
  • Your favorite Facebook group 😉
  • Christmas cards you are sending and/or receiving
  • Your front door or house
  • A recipe
  • Hot chocolate or a good cup of tea/coffee
  • Your dream house
  • Shopping list
  • Children/Grandchildren
  • Family tradition(s)
  • PJ’s all day –– staycation
  • Cleaning a closet or a room
  • The sky/the weather today
  • The kitchen
  • Work moment
  • What makes you happy?
  • Make a page with paint or watercolor
  • News: What’s happening right now –– local or worldwide
  • New Years wishes

If you are planning to journal through the full month of December (1–31st) to review the past year, you can also add things like: the best thing that happened last year, the saddest thing that happened last year, milestones, etc. 

For our Dutch members there is also Sinterklaas on December 5th –– a great subject for your December-Day-By-Day journal/ planner!

I hope this helps give you a little bit of inspiration as we get ready to document our December! Don’t forget to join us on the ECD Planner Page on Facebook to see other crafters’ planner pages, and to share pictures of your own!

Happy Planning!

Esther Glas
