OMG … I just got a peek at Design Team Member Barbara’s Spring and Easter card ideas and I just have to share. She has really out done herself with these templates and I, for one, am so impressed. See if you don’t agree with me. Embossing Joys, 🙂 Donna

Good morning! Have you seen the beautiful new cardstock from Lasting Impressions? OMG … these gorgeous red paper designs are even more beautiful in person! I decided to make a shaker card and I’m pleased how it turned out:
I also made a Valentine Candy Holder and a stand-up Valentine Card:
Donna’s Valentine Candy Holder, L.I. Temp #L9462.
Kaye, at Lasting Impressions had a very successful card class last week, so much so, she sold out her Valentine Kit. Kudos to you Kaye! She made an additional card for the L.I. showroom, along with some very cute tags:
Be sure and check out the Home Page for other beautiful tag ideas. Happy Valentine’s Day! With embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Good morning everyone and how about some “Hugs & Kisses” for your Valentine? Barbara made this adorable card using L.I. Templates L9634, L1039 and S891.

Hi everyone. Donna Lane here and if you have “followed me” on either L.I.’s Blog, my own personal Blog (http://donna-luv2emboss.blogspot.com/) or found me on Pinterest, then you know I love to make greeting cards! I also teach classes here in San Diego, California. I started embossing almost 20 years ago when I attended a craft show in San Diego and watched Lorie Jacobs demonstrate the technique. I knew I was hooked from that moment on. LOL
Today I am sharing some Valentine Cards with you and if you have any questions, or care to comment, please feel free to send me an email at LUV2EMBOSS@aol.com. I would love to hear from you. Happy Embossing, 🙂 Donna.
Hmmmmmm, I can smell that turkey roasting already, can you? I love Thanksgiving and not just because I love turkey but, it’s also time to reflect on what we are most grateful for in our lives. Family and friends, of course, is right up there on top of my list and I bet you have lots to be grateful for as well. I’m grateful that my design teammate is so on top of things and has made these two adorable cards for the blog. Take at peek at what Barbara created and look at a few “oldies but goodies” I manage to find this morning while counting my “crafting blessings.” Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 🙂 Donna
Okay, okay … so it’s not quite winter yet but, here in San Diego, this much cooler weather is a blessing! And how I wish I could play in the snow. Hopefully, these adorable winter cards from L.I. customer and friend, Janell, will inspire more than a few of you to get busy with your winter cards:
I am told that Janell used a die for her shaker card but you can easily use L.I. Love Jar, Temp #L9356 and “stretch” the length a bit to make it work for a shaker card! I love the idea and this adorable Santa and snowman image, don’t you?
Another one of my favorites from Janell is this really cute Flamingo Card below and the photo does not do it justice because what you can’t tell from this photo is the We R Memory Keepers’ Clearly Bold White Dot paper is see-thru. Trust me, it’s stunning in person with the clear white dot background … like snow falling outside your window. Hmmmmmm, what do I know … we don’t get snow here in San Diego but, I can use my imagination. LOL How about you? Great job, Janell, and thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us! Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
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:
