Good afternoon everyone. It’s a beautiful day here in San Diego and I hope it’s lovely where you are also. Do you have Easter plans? I know I do and I just hard boiled 3 dozen eggs to decorate on Sunday. I can hardly wait. If you are not preparing for Easter yet, or boiling eggs, perhaps you have had a chance to look at the new templates, the card samples, and beautiful papers that have just been released. Do you have a favorite? I love the new boots and I can only imagine what might be done with the adorable Llama template. “Lllma tell you,” I have some ideas. 🙂
We want to wish you all a very Happy Easter, no matter what you are doing, and I shall leave you with these last two truck door hangers from Barbara. They are incredible! Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Since Christmas, Barbara and I have been creating some fun cards and projects using LI’s truck template, #L9413. As you know, Barbara made a really cute door hanger this month and I decided to fill the truck with dirt loaded carrots on the way to market. A sneaky bunny slipped inside and I sure hope there are some carrots left for Farmer McGregor to sell. 🙂 Here are some other cards I made this month. I hope they will inspire you to make some of your own:
Thank you for stopping by. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Good afternoon everyone! Kaye’s class is tomorrow night and oh how I wish I could be there. I just love her little bunny and those adorable eggs (above)! I am also in love with Barbara’s cards this month. Look at these:
Last but certainly not least, here is a look at Barbara’s Easter Door Hanger. And, lucky me, I just received it in the mail.
I look forward to showing you my Spring/Easter ideas this weekend, so please check back with us again soon. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Oh gosh, April is here already. The birds are singing, the flowers are beautiful and our San Diego weather could not be better. And guess what? The bunny is headed our way. To prove that, Barbara has made some absolutely adorable tags for spring and Easter. Take a look:
I am sure you all will agree, Barbara did a great job with her tags. Stay tune because in a day or two I will post the cards she did. Barbara was truly on a roll. Embossing Spring Joys, 🙂 Donna
Good afternoon everyone. Wow, have you seen the latest paper release from Lasting Impressions? Oh my goodness, beautiful flowers, lovely backgrounds, and gorgeous colors! Please visit the Home Page for a closer look and take a peek at the latest card kits and Spring Banner. And don’t forget, if you are in the neighborhood, Kaye has an embossing class next week on April 4th at 6:30 p.m. Give the office a call to reserve your spot and come play!
The Design Team has some wonderful ideas coming up next week and while you wait, here is a beautiful card, designed by Kaye, using some of the new papers and, a couple of card ideas from LI customer Angie. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Good evening everyone. I can’t sit down and eat my dinner without wishing you all a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I had such fun creating this truck card, loaded with gold, for my family and I feel very lucky to have so much good in my life. A healthy family, good friends, and corned beef and cabbage roasting on the stove. Oh yum! 🙂 I have a couple of card ideas to share with you this evening, along with one from Kaye, Barbara, and my crafting buddy Jan. I hope you had an opportunity to play this weekend also and you have something yummy cooking on your stove. Be sure and check back with us next week when teammate Barbara and I will have some more fun ideas coming up using the templates and new cardstock now available on the Home Page. Until then … happy embossing, 🙂 Donna.
Did you know that a leprechaun is a mischievous elf of Irish folklore usually believed to reveal the hiding place of treasure if caught. Well, on our way back to San Diego, from a car show in Yuma, Arizona recently, my husband and I ran right smack into a rainbow and I lived to tell it. 🙂 However, there was no Leprechaun or his pot of gold at the end of that rainbow. Needless to say, I was disappointed but, not so much so that I wouldn’t display this adorable Leprechaun my husband cut out of wood for me to decorate with Lasting Impressions beautiful cardstock! I think it’s pretty cute, don’t you? And what about this really cute Clover Truck Door Hanger that teammate Barbara made for me? I think there’s a challenge there and I’m off to create my own Clover Truck. In the meantime, take a peek at Barbara’s Hanger below! It’s a keeper and I’m “green” with envy and embossing like mad. BTW, this truck template is available right now, along with some other wonderful templates, and a great new paper release. Visit the Home Page and check it all out. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Good morning once again and this is my last post of Valentine ideas! 🙂 I hope the cards have inspired you to purchase some of the beautiful new papers from Lasting Impressions and to make a few Valentine Cards to send to friends and love ones. I’m busy doing just that! Here is what I have for you today. First up is a very fun slider card made by my best crafting buddy, Jan. She recently purchased a slider mechanism from Lawn Fawn and with the new LI papers, she created this beautiful card. She’s become a real expert at this technique and I love what she has done. If you look closely you will see that there are little pockets at both ends of the slider where Jan put her sentiments. Great job Jan!
Next up are some versions of the Truck Kerry used to create her Valentine above. Barbara made the Door Hanger you will find in “Valentine Ideas Day One,” and last year, Kaye made her Christmas Truck:
If these are not enough to inspire you, here are a few “oldies but goodies” from years past! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. With Valentine hugs, 🙂 Donna
Good afternoon everyone. Today is day two of LI Valentines. I had so much fun creating new ideas with our latest release of beautiful cardstock. I am particularly fond of this release because it reminds me of cardstock I used when I first started with LI some 19 years ago! Amazing it has been that long. Here are my ideas. I hope they will inspire you. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
It has recently been brought to my attention, twice no less, that I neglected to show off my January HOME wood project. It’s crazy but I feel like the year is already whizzing by and I somehow missed the entire month of January. Where did it go? And for the last week, time has really flown by as Barbara and I are busily embossing some “sweet” ideas to show you for Valentine’s Day, using LI’s beautiful cardstock! Here are cards from Barbara and I will post my cards tomorrow. So stay tuned!
See you tomorrow for more Valentine samples. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
