Brass Templates from Lasting Impressions and Rubber Stamping.



About Me

My photo
Hi. I'm Donna and the owner of a business called Luv2Emboss. I've been crafting since the moment I could color with a crayon without eating it first! I have been embossing with Lasting Impressions' Brass Templates for 17 year and I am on their Design Team.. I also love to craft with rubber stamps and I hope the cards and projects I display will perk your interest to try a new craft or play with an old one! Enjoy. :-)

Need a Squeeze?


Need a squeeze to get your week going? How about this design from Lasting Impressions. Cute, huh? The template is from their Spring/Summer Collection ... #L9698. Enjoy your lemonade or maragarita while you are at it. :-)

Happy Sunday Catch-Up



Well, I have some catching up to do. First a couple more Post-It Holders ... one made with a Cottage Cutz Die (Peach). Lasting Impressions works so well with other mediums, i.e., this Sizzix Memo Post-It Holder and other Dies like Cottage Cutz., Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, etc. Here's anothe version of the daisy holder and the peach one. Hope you like them. :-)

Ooopsy Daisy Day!


Monday was yet another ooopsy daisy trash can accident for me! I'm unsure what it is about me and trash cans but we do not mix well! :-) Long story short, I fell with my flip flops on sand and the heavy, very full trash can I was walking down our steep driveway "took me down." My left leg is badly bruised and cut in several places. The gory details are not that important ... just know that my leg is not broken ... it's just not pretty.

Post-it anyone?


Sizzix makes a very cute Post-It Holder and it works really well with Lasting Impressions Templates. Here's a look at my latest version. Have a happy day!

Have it your way Whopper!


Good morning. I decided last night that the hot dog needed a partner and there just so happens to be a hamburger on the same template (#L9305). This card would be great for a guy's birthday too ... or a party invite to a BBQ. It's a wonderful design by Lasting Impressions! Makes me hungry. :-)

Card for a guy?


I think cards for men are the hardest to design, don't you? I was playing around today and came up with this idea. Hot dogs anyone?

Life is Good!




Lasting Impressions is selling another one of my designs as a Kit for just $12.95. Here's a peek, along with some of their Back-to-School ideas. Life is good!

Happy Saturday!



I belong to a card group called The Bossy Group. We've been playing a very successful card challenge where one member is the host for the month and she sends embossed "pieces" to members and we all create our own card from the pieces and then post a photo of same to see how many different designs we can come up with. Member Heidi was the host for August and she designed a beautiful birthday card sample and mailed her "pieces" to those of us who joined the game. Here's Heidi's original version and my creation from her "pieces." I hope you enjoy the weekend. I really enjoyed this card challenge! :-)
