DIY // doily business cards + packaging

March 1, 2012

i decided to whip up some fun doily business cards for the utah bloggers meet and greet last week!
i used my new doily nesting die cut from lifestyle crafts* to cut out the perfect size doilies for my business cards using kraft paper.  
the stamp i made for my business cards for alt came in handy, because i can stamp my information on anything!  so, it was fun to be able use the doilies for cards, plus it was part of the theme of the evening, so that was a bonus!
i also was able to use the lifestyle crafts antique doily die* to dress up my packaging for some armelle jewelry items i gave away at the event!

 i have always loved to use doilies to dress up a package, so it was fun to be able to create some doilies in any color i want!

stay tuned for pictures of the meet and greet!  it was such a fun evening!

be stuffed …

September 7, 2011


i know it’s only september, but really thanksgiving will be here before you know it.  the months just tend to fly by these days. (seriously, how is summer already over?)

anyhow, i wanted to share with you a fun thanksgiving table setting i put together using the new be stuffed release from lifestyle crafts.

i was able to incorporate (my favorite kind of paper) vintage book pages, with simple brown craft paper card stock, as well as turquoise.

i used dies from the release to cut out a mayflower boat (that doubled as a name place setting filled with corn nuts), a pilgrim hat (perfect for holding little colored pencils for the kiddos)

i used the place setting kit die to make a fun little collar for my sparking juice.

to finish off the place setting i made a menu with the place setting die kit, and embellished the setting with a few feathers from the feather headband die, a turkey leg, and a turkey.

this fun new release made it simple to create this fun thanksgiving table setting.  i just rolled them out using my epic six machine with the dies.

i am excited to use these on my thanksgiving table this year!  be sure to check out the lifestyle crafts blog for more thanksgiving inspiration.
