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 20 years and I am on their Design Team. I also love to craft with rubber stamps and I sell Lawn Fawn products. I hope the cards and projects I display will perk your interest to try a new craft or play with an old one! Enjoy. :-)

Donna's Feelin' cooped up chicken -- stamp by Woodware.

Good morning everyone.  Feelin' a little cooped up?  I sure am and it seems like this pandemic has brought along some small problems with it that I did not anticipate.  For example, my husband's much needed knee surgery was postponed; our home telephone line into the house broke; our wonderful TV of some 20 years finally died; our oven broiler is no longer working; and now I'm sitting at my computer just waiting for the next egg to fall ... or is it shoe?  :-)  Here are some more ideas using the June Challenge Template.  So cute!

Barbara's Zoo Train using LI Template #L9214.

Julie's Zoo Birthday using LI Template #L9214 with faux stitching!

Karie's Father's Day Card using LI Templates #M10 (Surf's Up),
#L9413 (Truck), #L9700 (Monkey) and #L9215 (Sun).

Donna's Zoo Window Flaps.  This is the "closed" look of
LI Template #L9214.

Donna's Easel Card using LI Template #L9214 (Zoo).  The inside
reads, "Happy Father's Day."

I hope you will come back often for more ideas coming this month.  Please stay safe and healthy as we make our way through this pandemic.  Happy embossing, :-)  Donna


  1. I think I did a train card with that template when I first got it or the train stamp I used which would have been quite a bit later. I will have to have a look and see if I can find a pic. Anyway, it is very cute Barbara.

  2. Thanks Julie. I can always count on you leaving a positive comment and I agree ... Barbara's train is adorable. I hope you can find your version. XO

  3. Oh you guys!!! Each one of these cards is adorable! I could take up a page pointing out all the 'cuteness' to each one of the cards!!! How darling they each one are!!! Love them!!!

    1. Thanks so much Kaye! I've so enjoyed bringing life back into my blog and I hope your classmates will join in the fun some day soon! I would love that. Can you challenge them to make a summer card? XO
