Hello folks !!!
Welcome to the ECD blog. It’s die cutting time today and I am here to show how we can stretch our dies by re-arranging die cut pieces to create beautiful card bases. Elizabeth Craft Designs’ dies can be used in so many ways to create a variety of projects and it’s great to play with them and take them beyond their original shape.

Scour the secondhand stores for vintage cotton or linen handkerchiefs and tuck one inside the sweet envelope you’re going to make. “But Suzanne,” you’re thinking, “You don’t have a die that says ‘Bless’!” True. But I do have a die that says ‘Blessings’ and with a couple of cuts you’ve got just what you need. Here’s how…
Hello Dear Friends,
Shalini Pahwa here. A rose is a symbol of love. There is no better way to express your love, gratitude or appreciation to someone than to give them a bouquet of roses.
Since my childhood I have been enamored of roses. Seeing the new Garden Notes Rose 3 die set by Susan Tierney-Cockburn from the Susan’s Garden collection gave me a new way to use my own creativity to express my love for these wonderful flowers.
This Thinking of You with Roses card is a way to celebrate both the amazing flower and the amazing die.

Hi Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing a beautiful Love & Happiness Wall Hanging. My starting point for my wall hanging was the Ready to Bloom die and the different die cut images just grew from there. I used a variety of dies from ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio as well as a stamp from Joset Designs to make the wall hanging. Let me show you how to make it.
