Travel Journal Nevada

 I'm excited to share another page from my "Places I've Been" journal. This time, it was a fun and quick trip to Nevada where my guy and I saw Rod Stewart and the Raiders football team.

It's so fun to chronicle my travel journeys! I love to sort through all the fun pictures from the trip. These pages were made with Planner Essentials products that are linked up below.

I'm excited to be sharing a couple cards up on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog today. 

I really love the variety of products available at Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used the same sketch for both cards - but got very different kinds of cards!

Raiders Game

 My guy and I went to a Raiders game last October; we had such a good time!  I documented our fun time with a couple Sidekick pages with products from Elizabeth Craft Designs!

I love how the little prince turned Raider fit into the pocket to add just a bit more interest. 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Playing with Circles

 I'm back again with another post for Elizabeth Craft Designs. In this post, I created a card and a scrapbook page using circles!

First up is a card using the Squirrel.  How unbelievably sweet he is!

Next up is a Sidekick sized journal page. At a Sacramento Kings game one night, I started noticing all the fun, bright colorful shoes and decided to do a page about them.  (It was better than being sad that my team was losing!!)

Thanks a bunch for stopping by!

Fun in Alabama

 My guy and I traveled to Alabama last July and had an amazing time with his sister's family. For my album about "my guy and I," I created the following Sidekick sized pages with projects from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

What fun we had! I used the Sidekick 19 as my base and letters from Planner Essentials 23. The little "burlap like" die is from Planner Essentials 40. I put my journaling into a Stitched Circle and embellished my page with the Ducks and with a fish from the Camping Accessories set. Of course, I had to add some reinforcements!

Added a few more pictures on the back of the page! Thanks for stopping by today.

Cats and Bunnies

 I have been on a kick lately to create a card and then follow up with a scrapbook page inspired by the card. Today's creations use products from Elizabeth Craft Designs, and the details for the projects are up on their blog today!

I created this sweet Bunny card first.  Then I used the triangle shapes (made from cutting the Fitted Square in half) and the paper to create the below pages.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Grey and Brown Birthday Squirrel

 I love Joset's latest release, especially the adorable Squirrel. Today, I created him using grey and brown.

He is cut from 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and colored with TH Distress Inks. The grey is Weathered Wood, the brown is Vintage Photo, and I love the Kitsch Flamingo pink cheeks. I colored his nose and eyes with black and brown Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by today!

The New Beaver

 I just love all of Joset's critters at Elizabeth Craft Designs. They have just released some new ones, including the fun and ever-so-sweet Beaver. I created a card and a Sidekick-sized scrapbook page using him as an embellishment.  All of the details are on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today (linked above) and the Elizabeth Craft Designs supplies I used are linked up below.  (The beaver isn't there; he's only available at craft stores for a little while!)

December Daily - Days 19 to 25

 Excited to be nearing completion of my Daily December album with products from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I love that someone in the planner group suggested using the Planner Essentials 45 page for a birthday page. This was my guy's dad's birthday, and I love how the page turned out.  The page base is Planner Essentials 4, and those letters are a combination of Planner Essential 37 and 23. The "19" stamp is from the Calendar Numbers set and is framed with a Stitched Circle.

Next up was using the Honey Bear die to decorate the page with a picture of me and my honey at his work holiday party! I used a bunch of Fitted Circle die cuts to decorate this page.

The page base for Day 21 is the Planner Essentials 15 (no longer on ECD's website), and I added a Fitted Rectangle to frame my picture.

Day 22 uses pictures of my guy and I meeting a basketpall pro.  How cool; he's so tall!

For many days of December, my guy and I binge-watched the available seasons of Yellowstone.  I need more! I thought the Donkey with the cowboy hat was perfect to decorate this page.  The page base is from Planner Essentials 4 again, and the circle words are found in Planner Essentials 43.

Christmas eve was as magical as ever. I went to dinner with family and then opened presents with my guy and his dog. I used a tree from the Sleigh dies.

I had to use two pages for Day 25, of course!  Santa decorated the front, and I used one of my favorites (Planner Essentials 24) on the back.  The last of my pages are coming soon!

Craftily yours, Karen
