October 20, 2019

Who else is excited for the upcoming holiday season? Sure, there’s the stress of cooking, and gift-giving… but that also means that there are more opportunities to craft! (And we couldn’t be more excited!)

With the help of our amazing Design Team, we’ve put together a list of Thanksgiving projects you’ll definitely want to make this year. Take a look below, and be sure to tell us in the comments which one you’ll be making!

What I’m thankful for: I’m thankful for having a supportive Fiance who supports through everything, even if my ideas and choices are a bit crazy.

Laura Gilhuly

What I’m thankful for: The aspect of my life that I am most thankful for is my family.

We are a really close family and we help each other through good and bad.  We had a rough year with Jon’s health and every day I am thankful for him to be here and our boys that showed their loving and caring and strong demeanor that helped us both. I am thankful for the laughter we share, the lessons we have learned, the moments we have and the life we have built together.

Sneak Peek: Flourished Deer!

October 19, 2019

I’m thrilled to introduce you to some of the brand new dies coming VERY soon to Elizabeth Craft Designs! 

Meet the Flourished Deer – large enough to be a feature design on a card and yet leave room for lots of other embellishments if you wish.  The Flourished Deer comes with a collar, a bell, an eye and a Rudolph nose should you wish to use it!  It’s so versatile!

The flourished snowflake is part of a new set of Flourished Christmas Minis which are perfect on their own and also fit beautifully inside the Love Joy Peace Christmas Ornament.  They’re great for combining with stamps, too.  (We have a new set of those as well!)

This is how you make this card….

Step 5 – cut two Celebration flags and adhere together



Step 6 – Cut three flowers and leaves from the Tropical Florals



Step 7 – ink the edges of all the papers and die cuts
Step 8 – assemble as shown and add title

Everyday Life Planner

October 2, 2019

Good morning Crafters, today it is Luciana here, with a new planner spread. I love using the planning system to keep memories and picture and little pieces of my everyday life.

Step 1. create a background page. Use some watercolor as base, and the stamps from the set Pure Spring and the set Patterns 2. Create a texture on the page using the die from the set Planner Patterns and some stripes of washi tapes. Add the hole reinforcers from the set Planner Essentials – 7.

Step 2. Stamp on the White Soft Finish Cardstock the 3 labels from the set Retro Labels, then the sentiments “hello everyday life” from the set Retro Labels Sayings and “for the record” from the set Family. In the empty label I added the name of the baby.

Step 3. Add some embellishments.
Die cut from the White Soft Finish Cardstock:
2 set of Garden Notes – Frosty Fern
2 set of Garden Notes – Eucalyptus Frosty Fern
2 set of labels from the set Planner Essentials – 11

Happy planning!

To create this layout:

I used various papers: ModaScrap’s Wood Effect Paper for the background and Blue Cotton Candy for the accent pieces and title piece.

Step 1 – Using your accent papers Die cut – 2 stitched circles – your choice of size and cut one in half, a stitched fishtail with accent paper  and one using the card paper of the blue cotton candy to create your title, kaleidoscope background, the tag part of the planner essentials 11, the largest die in Planner Essentials 8, the heart from Love Struck, a border from Valentines Edges,  the circle and tree from the Love Life Tag  and two stitched rectangles.

Step 2 – apply a double sided adhesive sheet to a piece of Soft Finish cardstock and die cut the following – 2 edges from the Valentines Edges, a circle from the Love Life Tag, and a banner set from the celebration flags.  Peel off one backing and apply midnight blue silk microfine glitter from the Beach Palette set. Rub the pieces with your fingers to bring out the sparkle

Step 3 – Assemble as shown

DIY Mini Journal

September 8, 2019

As always, Esther Glas (designer for the Planner Essentials line) blows us away with another amazing project idea –– DIY Mini Journals!

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!
