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 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. :-)

 Good afternoon.  It is always a pleasure when my youngest daughter Lori comes to visit.  Once she saw how cute the new "Christmas in July" Cut Outs were, from Lasting Impressions, she had to make them.  Below are her finished cards/tags and they did turn out darling, don't you think?  I hope you can all find time with family and do something fun together!  We feel very blessed.

 Good morning everyone.  Oh my gosh, I am behind again and Lasting Impressions' Camp 2022 has already started and the last week of videos will begin August 15th.  I can hardly wait.  :-)  In the meantime, here are the cards I made during Week 1 and Week 2.  I would encourage you to take a look at the videos for same and join the fun in August!  Happy camping.  :-)  Donna

 Oh my gosh, time does really fly when you are having fun. And, that is exactly what I have been doing!  Here is what has kept me busy for the last week or two:

Donna's LF Cookie Sheet

Jenn (Creative Chick) decided to do an Advent Calendar using a cookie sheet and Lawn Fawn stamped images.  She then did an on-line class for 7 hours.  Yep ... you read that correctly ... 7 very long hours.  The nice thing, you could replay the video at your own speed.  You can bet, that's exactly what I did so I could add the small details that I love to do.  Most images are colored with Copic Markers and all are individually mounted on a magnet.  I love how it turned out and I hope you enjoy taking a peek at what I did to complete it.  The idea for the Christmas Lights at the bottom is from two very creative Lawn Fawn Designers, Chari and Caly.  If you have time, go see what Jenn does on her web site.  You will find her at:

Until next time, Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you are working on your Christmas Cards!  Happy Crafting.  :-) Donna

Donna's LI Summer Camp Sunshine Cut Out.

Good morning!  I'm excited to remind you that Week 3 of LI's Summer Camp Videos will run August 17 - 20th, entitled "Note Worthy."  The card I made above is just a peek of what is to come ... my favorite week!  So, get ready to play and come watch!  I also want to show you two cards below made by one of my cardmaking classmates over the weekend using LI Christmas Cut Outs.  Kathy did such a great job and I think you will agree.  Happy crafting!  :-)  Donna

Karie's LI Pot of Daisies.

Hello once again!  As promised, today is all about my friend Karie and her embossed versions of Week 2, LI's Summer Camp!  Before I do, however, did I mention to you that Karie is a nut?  The latest is a bunch of pots with daisies like the one pictured above.  The daisies are a LI Cut Out and my nutty friend made 24 of these pots ... all with different colored pots and daisies.  Nuts!  Here now are Karie's adorable card ideas:

Karie's "Oh Christmas Tree."

Karie's Reindeer & Santa.  My favorite!

I hope we have inspired you to get started on your own Christmas Cards.  The clock is ticking!  Happy embossing, :-)  Donna.

Donna's LI Cut Outs Christmas Santa card.

Greetings from a week of Summer Camp ... at Lasting Impressions!  To be perfectly honest, Week 2 was not my favorite.  Maybe it was the weather, I don't know, but "Christmas in July" just didn't seem right and I was not inspired "at first!"  However, I ended up having so much fun creating new ideas that I "sorta" like Week 2.  In fact, I am having my own "Christmas in July" classes next weekend!  LOL  Once I got my creative juices flowing, I could not stop.  Here is just a few of the things I made and tomorrow, I will show you what my friend Karie came up with as she embossed her versions of Week 2.  I think you will love what she does so stay tuned.
