L Letterpress How To

Hello!  I have good news for you, it is Friday...which means the weekend is here.  I hope you have something fun or relaxing planned for your weekend.

Today's video is a "How To" video, demonstrating the L Letterpress from Lifestyle Crafts.  You saw me use a piece of paper in my last video that had been letterpressed and I have really been wanting to show everyone how to use this tool.

Lifestyle Crafts is currently offering 35% off of all of their tools on their site through President's Day, which means you can pick up this tool for a great bargain.

You can see another project that I made using the Letterpress on the Lifestyle Crafts blog.  I've been having a blast creating with this tool.  I also have several Letterpress projects posted in my Flickr feed which can be accessed at the left side of my blog.  The pictures really don't do these cards justice.  This tool gives a stunning result.

If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them.

I hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks for visiting me!

Letterpress Valentine Card

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a fabulous week!

Today, my husband and I celebrate our ten year wedding anniversary. We are currently in the airport, waiting for our flight. We are getting away for a few days and we are really looking forward to some relaxation and fun!

Today's card features one of my favorite new tools, the L Letterpress from Lifestyle Crafts. I used the Letterpress to create the background paper on this card. I will be doing a video soon showing you exactly how this is done. I also used the Nesting Frames Dies from Lifestyle Crafts.

Be sure to check out the Lifestyle Crafts website. They are offering a 20% discount through Valentine's Day! See their blog for more details. www.lifestylecrafts.com

I'd love to hear what you all have planned for Valentine's Day. I will be back at school on Monday...so it's a good thing we are getting away this weekend. Leave me a comment and tell me what plans you have.

I hope you have a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Circle Thank You Card

Here's a card that I've been dying to show you.  I used dies from Lifestyle Crafts' new Fresh Start release to create this fun card.  If you haven't checked out Lifestyle Crafts' products, you need to!  In case you haven't noticed the information on the sidebar of my blog, I am now on the Lifestyle Crafts design team! You'll be seeing a lot of fun projects using their products.

Every now and then, I like to do a card that is a different shape or size and this was one of those times.

The card was inspired by a scrapbook page that I created using the same die sets.  The great thing about the die sets is that you get multiple sizes of images to use, which makes them perfect for scaling down for a card.  But the larger dies in the set are perfect for images on a scrapbook page.

The patterned paper I used is from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection.

The die sets I used in this project are:
Nesting Circles
DIY Pennants
Blue Sky Alphabet
A2 Collection

All the dies are available by visiting the Lifestyle Crafts site.

I hope you enjoy this project and I hope you enjoy your day!

Now I must go work on school work. I am counting down the days until graduation.  May 24th cannot get here soon enough.
