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. :-)

Jan's Dracula, LI Template #L9104.

Good morning!  You may not know this but, Halloween is my second favorite holiday!  I mean, who doesn't love Christmas?  But, for me, the very fun, sometimes scary images of Halloween or those darling costumes the little kids wear trick-or-treating, are just so much fun!  September is just a few days away and for the month, the Design Team will be showing you some Halloween inspirations!  I, for one, can hardly wait.  So, pick up your stylus, go look and see what templates you have that might fit September's Challenge and come play with us!  Happy Embossing, :-)  Donna.

Donna's Rocket LI Template #L9811.
Donna's Rocket, LI Template #L9811.

Hi everyone.  I hope you are "blasting off" for some fun in the sun or maybe just planning a "stay-cation."  Whatever you are doing, or wherever you are going, I hope you have enjoyed this month's vacation ideas and have felt inspired to do some cardmaking of your own.   I have to admit, while I enjoy staying home and crafting, this month's template theme was kinda hard at first but, once I got going ... I couldn't stop!  :-)  Here are a few more ideas:

Karie's Tiki Step Card.  L.I. Templates #L9831 and #L9832.  Karie's card definitely makes me want to go on a Hawaiian vacation ... or have a coconut daiquiri.  :-)

Donna's Pop-Up Happy Camper Card.  L.I. Template #L9761 and Cut-outs.

Donna's Happy Camper Pop-Up inside.  L.I. Templates #L9761, #L9222, #L9398, and Cut-Outs.

Donna's On the Road Car.  L.I. Template #L9384.

Donna's Happy Travels Luggage.  L.I. Templates #LL9472 and #L9056.

Donna's Gnome Camper!  L.I. Templates #L9826. #:92222. and #M2.

Donna's Stay-cation.  L.I. Template #L1061.

I had such fun playing all week and this last card says it all for me because there truly is no place like home!  Happy embossing, :-)  Donna

Donna's Vacation Card using LI Templates  S495, L9384, and S723.

Good morning everyone!  Do you need a vacation from this pandemic?  I sure do and the Design Team have come up with some terrific ideas.  It does not matter if you travel by air, land or sea ... just enjoy the journey!  :-) 

Kaye's Camper, LI Template #L9761.
Kaye's Camper, LI Template L9761.  I love the color Kaye used for her camper.  The yellow is so cheerful.  

This is Barbara's version of her camper, LI Templates L9761 and L9601 for the fir tree.  Isn't her background paper cute?

This is Barbara's truck heading for a day at the beach.  I wanna go!  Barbara used LI Templates L9413 for her truck, S711 for the sun, and the tree is L9765.

Jan's "On the Road Again" car, LI Template L9384 is so cute and I love the luggage rack!  Jan also used "Scrapbooks ... on the Go, Moments Remembered," for her background.

And here's an amazing Shutter Card from Karie!  OMG this girl does love to go all out and believe this ... she makes several of these to give away to friends!  Want to be her friend?  I do!  :-)  Karie used LI Templates M2 for the trees, fish, canoe/paddle, and "camp."  L9223 for the fire and S835 for the bear.  Great job Karie.

August isn't over yet and there is more to come so please check back soon.  Happy Embossing, :-)  Donna.

Donna's Summer Camp Paris Poodle Card

 Good evening everyone!  Well  the LI Summer Camp Week 1, "Off to Paris," has now ended and we have all left Paris.  It has been such fun creating cards with LI's Card Cut Outs and because the card above was all about Paris, I just had to add an embossed Poodle, LI Template #L9477.  He's a cutie!  :-)

Karie did some embossing also when she made her French Flowers Card.

Karie's Summer Camp Fresh Flowers.

I love how Karie embossed two daisies with little button centers to go in her flower shop.  She also made the shopping bag and filled it with French Bon-Bons.  Oh yummy!

Here is my little Shopping Bag. All I added were two buttons ... no yummy candy.  But, I think it would make a very cute Gift Card bag!

Week 2 of Summer Camp starts on Monday, August 24th, and is entitled "On the Farm."  The images are adorable and I can hardly wait to get started.  While we do wait, I will be posting the vacation ideas from the Design Team for our August Challenge.  I've had a peek and the cards are adorable!  Happy Crafting, :-)  Donna

Donna's LI Summer Camp Thank You Tag Card.
Good morning everyone!  I want to thank you for being so patient about my missing August Challenge Vacation uploads!  I have been so naughty watching Kerry's Summer Camp Class Videos at LI and making cards instead!  They have been such fun.  You can still order the kits and play along or just watch the videos for great ideas.  Here are the cards I've done so far.  Happy crafting!  :-)  Donna.  P.S.  Vacation ideas are still coming so stay tuned!
