A Romantic Dinner with the Love Release!

Patch, one of our design team members set up this Valentine's Day dinner for his wife using the dies from the Love release. We are loving this sophisticated side of Lifestyle Crafts and it's proof that these dies are extremely versatile! Patch was nice enough to send us instructions on how he set up this surprisingly simple dinner. 

I wanted to set up a nice romantic table for two that felt handmade but also sophisticated. The Mini Takeout Box was my favorite. It was SO easy and with this choice of gold leafed paper I think it came out so nice. A perfect spot for a simple gold chain and a promise.Gift Box 1

The candle wraps were easy.  I used the XO border die and wrapped them around the candle.

The Votive holders were so fast and anything you put a soft flame behind always comes out looking great.  Using the Love Pop-ups, I just measured the paper around the votive holders I had at the house, cut to size, and zipped it through the Epic and glued the seams. Done.

The mini valentine was my wife's favorite, I added the first lines of a poem read at our wedding, 'My truelove has my heart, and I have his' And instead of the the word 'heart' the clasp of the envelope took it's place. Perfect.

The Place mats were simple, I punched out 8 hearts (4 with scalloped edges and 4 plain nesting hearts, that way I could punch two styles at the same time) and glued them in the circle creating that quilted star pattern in the middle. I adjusted them to fit my plates and glued them in place with a glue stick.

The XO confetti was just the XO border die, snipped apart instead of left together.  I also thought how great it would look if you had a few different lettering dies to do lots of sizes of X's and O's, maybe throw some glitter down with 'em so the table has some sparkle.

Patch's advice: Use what you have. Your house is filled with things that can be looked at in a different way and sometimes your plans need to change. Be flexible and the whole experience should be enjoyable. I had a lot of fun putting this table together and I'm pretty pleased with the result.

 Thanks for the great ideas Patch!


The Love Release has arrived!

Monogrammed cards with the L Letterpress.

We recently received a submission that we wanted to share with everyone! Our new friend, Carrisa Wiley made these beautiful cards for personalized gifts to hand out during the holidays. They even have corresponding letterpressed monograms! She used the Damask and Scholastic printing plates to complete this look. Notice that die-cutting was also used here.  Nesting Circles and Nesting Scallops are great for hosting a monogram and putting the finishing touch on a project. The ribbon is also a nice touch and really adds character to the project.  Great work Carrisa and thanks for sharing!

A Holiday Garland with Nesting Circles and the L Letterpress.


You can never go wrong with a garland, especially for holidays because you can re-use them every year!  We love using our cutting dies with letterpress projects and here we showcase our nesting circles paired with the Jubilee plate. 

Happy holiday crafting!

What we used:
Nesting Circles
Jubilee Printing Plate

Another Tree!

Today we're showing off another awesome project from one of our design team members, Patch.  He made this beautiful tree out of an old book he found at a thrift store, our scalloped cupcake liner from the Essentials release, and the flourish from the Black Friday release.

A Christmas Tree with our Nesting Scallops!

Isn't this Christmas Tree made with our nesting scallops wonderful? One of our design team members Leah Killian came up with the idea and we just had to share. She was kind enough to send us instructions and photos of the process. Thanks Leah!
1. Cut a cardboard base slightly smaller than your largest scallop.
2. Poke a kebab skewer through the center of the base, and secure with glue.
3. Cut 3 of each size of scallop in coordinating scrapbook paper (use a heavier weight paper).
4. Put a small hole in the center of each scallop.
5. Put a dab of glue on the hole before you load them onto your skewer from largest to smallest one at a time- leave a small space between each one.

6. Once you reach the top, use stars from the basic cupcake liner collection glued back to back to cover the tip of the skewer.
7. To make larger or smaller trees, just cut more or less scallops. I also inked the edges of my scallops.

The finished product!
