Hey Friends. It’s EK, and I am sneaking in today to share a little card project that is hoping for some cooler weather and warmer drinks. It might be October, but here it is still hot, hot, hot, and I am so ready for sweaters and hot chocolate. And while there is not a break in the weather in the forecast, Krista’s new stamp collection perfectly evokes what I want it to be like outside.
Hello friends – it’s Sandy back with you to share a fast and easy project that will add fun and sparkle to your holidays. Yes, the holiday season will soon be upon us, whether we are ready or not. We like to entertain and especially during the holidays. I’ve made these fun little luminaries to decorate my dinner table and to use as place markers. They are blank at the moment but as soon as my guest list is final I will add names using a label maker or typing and printing them from my computer. The battery-operated candles last for a few hours so turn them on just before your guests arrive and they will last through dinner.
It’s challenge time again! Our Design Team is back this month with lots of inspiration for this month’s challenge … Are you ready?
Our challenge is …………
Classic Christmas– some of the things/traditions which always come to mind when we talk Christmas are things like ….

Hello friends and welcome, it’s Sandy here with a fun project for you today. Although it is hotter than blue blazes here in Arizona I have been thinking about the holiday season. With all the great new dies from Joset’s recent release I just couldn’t stop thinking about Christmas and some cool snow flakes. If you like to incorporate photos in your cards for the holidays I have just the thing for you and would you believe it folds down flat for mailing?
You may have noticed already that we had new dies/stamps released a few weeks ago from our Licensed Designer Joset van de Burgt.
For our Design Team Focus on New Release blog post today the Design Team are excited to share projects using these new released products.
Joset has 13 new die sets and 2 new sentiment stamp sets . Let’s take a look at what our Design Team created using them!
Hello there everyone, it’s Sanna here with a Guest Designer project. But first, I´d like to congratulate everyone on the design team. It’s a great team to be part of! I feel very honored to be able to stay here and share crafty projects with you as a guest blogger. Today is my turn to share the first project, so let’s get started.
Hi everyone and welcome. With the holidays behind us we can kick back a little. It’s time sit down and write the thank you cards for all the lovely gifts we received from friends and family. It’s Sandy Diller here and I have a lovely card to share with you that depicts the season. It looks difficult but is surprisingly easy to put together. Who wouldn’t love to receive this inlaid snowflake card?
Hi, it’s Sandy here with you today sharing two cards. It’s always fun to use our dies in an unexpected way and that’s what we are going to do. One of my favorite die sets is the Snowflakes and I’ve used it many times to make backgrounds or as a focal point on a card. This time I want to show you how to make a stunning Christmas wreath that is either elegant or festive depending on what colors are used.
Welcome back to Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today I am playing around with the new “Snowflake” dies from the winter collection. I just love how this turned out.
