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 morning once again!  A little giggle before I post the last of my Valentine samples:

My daughter and I are going to the hospital today and she will have a chat with her Oncologist and then have her daily radiation.  We can be at the hospital every day anywhere from 40 minutes to 7 hours depending on her treatment for that day.  While I wait for her, I often have to use the porta-potties because the hospital does not let anyone else in the hospital ... just employees and patients.  So, I've become real friendly with the potties "around the corner" and in the hospital parking lot!  This experience has been most unpleasant ... not only because that's the nature of these potties, but because every time I use one the truck pumping company somehow appears right in front of the stall I am using, blocking the door, and ready to pump!  I know you are laughing, but seriously, this is no joking matter as I fear my life might be in danger!  LOL ... now I'm laughing.  I have no idea why they seem to come every time, but even yesterday, I used the potty and then got in my car to leave the parking lot and pick up Lori, at the front of the hospital, and low and behold, the truck appeared behind my car and I couldn't back out!  Needless to say, it was a "crappy" day for both Lori and I.  :-)

Here are some happier moments as I share a beautiful card from my Design Team Buddy Barbara and finally my Valentine cards! 

Barbara's beautiful embossed card.

Here are my samples using LI's Cut Outs from their Valentine Release:

I really enjoyed these Cut Outs and my cards all came together really quick!  The Cut Outs are still available at LI and I think they work well for all occasions.  Try some!   Happy embossing.  :-)  Donna

Good morning once again.  Yesterday (and every Wednesday) is a long day for my daughter and I because not only does she have her radiation, but she also has chemo!  So, we are at the hospital for about 7 hours.  Did I mention it's a very long day! Nonetheless, here are some additional Valentine ideas that I did not get posted yesterday!  These first few are from a long time craft friend of mine ... in England!

Love Tag L9272 and L9455.

Rolled Roses Tag L9379 and L9452.

And these Valentines are from Karie:

Thank you Sharon and Karie for these wonderful, "heartfelt" ideas.  Tomorrow I hope to post some of my Cut Outs from Lasting Impressions' Valentine Release.  And BTW, have you seen their "Green" Release?  Karie says she has already started on those ideas.  Oh my ... I simply cannot keep up with that girl.  LOL   Until tomorrow, happy embossing wherever your heart takes you.  :-) D

Good morning!  I thought my daughter Lori might enjoy putting together LI's recent Valentine Release Kits and boy did she shine!  She has been undergoing chemo and radiation and I wasn't quite sure if she would be up to crafting.  However, I think you will agree, she did a fabulous job.  Here is a look at her cards:

I have more Valentines coming!  See you tomorrow.  :-) Donna
