I saw the Lifestyle Crafts Letter Press kit at Hobby Lobby about a year ago and I have wanted it ever since! Unfortunately, this was right in the middle of wedding planning so the last thing I could do was pick up a new craft (time and money). Surprisingly, paper crafts is the one craft I never got in to (aside from a summer of scrapbooking in 9th grade). I figured I could use this kit to pretty up all of my packaging, thank you cards, etc. I would like the whole shopping experience to feel hand-made.

I have the most wonderful MIL who not only gave me the Letter Press Kit for Christmas… but also a Sizzix! I played around with it immediately and was quickly covered in ink. So I put it away until I could afford some of the accessories that are supposed to make the whole process (and clean up) easier. I had my first sale on ArtFire the other day so I thought I better get started and get at least the thank you’s done. Here is how it turned out:

Not bad! I need to make a few adjustments… it didn’t emboss quite as much as I would have liked, and the purple needs to be darker, but for the most part I am pleased!

Peace & Love!

It's been 8 months...

That can only mean one thing... it is time for a post apologizing for not posting and promising to post more frequently. Well there you have it :)

In other news... I added actual items to my ArtFire shop. I know... wow... that is a huge step :) That baby has been empty for... well I don't even know how long... but I do know it has been a LONG time.

That is all for now :)

Peave & Love!
