Oh my goodness … I find myself dragging my feet these days. Do you ever feel that way too? I think it has to do with our crazy weather here in San Diego … at least that’s my excuse. Halloween is around the corner and while teammate Barbara has some darling Halloween Cards made, I’ve only just begun. Seems ridiculous since my Halloween decorations have been up for a month! Where are my cards? LOL Thankfully, I had extra time over the weekend and came up with a few ideas:
Happy October everyone! OMG … this year is going by way too fast. However, I am delighted to see October arrive because it’s my birthday month and one of my favorite holidays. Here’s just a peek of fun things coming up this month:
Barbara’s Ghost/Cat Basket, L.I. Template #’s L9422 and L9540.
What is your favorite holiday and are you making some Halloween Cards? We would love to see them. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Good morning everyone. i can’t quite believe I am finally saying this but, “Fall is in the air” and OMG it feels soooooo good! To help celebrate our cooler weather, here are some adorable fall cards from our Design Team at Lasting Impressions. Enjoy and happy Fall embossing. 🙂 Donna
Good afternoon everyone. Kaye at Lasting Impressions had a class last week using L.I. Template #L9372, entitled “Just Because.” Here is the very fun card she created for her class:
I love the yellow and grey cardstock she used and the very clever layout. Don’t you just love polka-dots? Then Barbara and I decided to add our two cents, “just because,” and came up with these two samples:
Don’t you love the pink and orange colors and the clever way she used the sentiment. Now here’s my version:
I used the Colored Impressons’ Software to print and emboss the “Just Because” wording and then left just enough space on the bottom of my card for the rest of the sentiment I wanted to add. I embossed the “orange” image twice … once on orange cardstock and then a second time I cut out sections of the orange for the image done using Peach cardstock and layered the sections on top. I used L.I. Template #L9790 for the leaves. I hope you will give this very fun template a try and come up with your own version, just because! Happy embossing, 🙂 Donna
Hello everyone from a very hot San Diego! Yep, we are experiencing weather in the high 90’s and 100’s and I could sure use some cold weather! Speaking of which, recently I pinch a winter project I saw on a company called Simple Stories (https://simplestories.com) and I knew I had to do it using Lasting Impressions’ beautiful cardstock. The original project was designed by Julie Johnson from Paisleys & Polka Dots, for Simple Stories, and what a beautiful, fun project it turned out to be and she’s a fabulous designer. Here is my version of her Winter Snowmen. I so enjoyed putting it together:
Good morning everyone. Yep, it’s still hot, hot, hot in San Diego and I definitely have the fans blowing, ice cold lemonade in one hand and my stylus in the other … trying to complete part 2 of my Christmas Card samples. I hope we’ve inspired you to emboss a few and stay cool!
Time to add some wonderful card inspirations from Barbara! What a great job she does and I bet you will want to go emboss some Christmas Cards of your very own once you take a peek at these. I know I did!
Good morning everyone. This is Donna … once again reporting from a very hot San Diego! 🙂 Thankfully, I have an indoor passion that I can do all day long … yep, in front of a very big fan, with the A/C blaring! 🙂 Here is “part 1” of my Christmas ideas with more coming soon. I hope they will inspire you to go play in front of your fan! Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Good morning everyone. I do hope you all enjoyed the 4th. Having lived in a foreign country for a couple of years … one with a lot of “have nots” … I so appreciate our great country. And here’s some Christmas tags from Barbara that I hope you all with enjoy! With much Christmas joy, 🙂 Donna.
Happy July everyone. I decided to start our “Christmas in July” cards and projects by showing you some ideas from my crafting buddy Jan. She’s almost as nutty as I am about cardmaking (almost)! Take a look at her adorable projects and I will be back all this month with more fun ideas for you to try. With a little Christmas Joy, 🙂 Donna
