Odds and Ends

I recently attended a demo sponsored by Lifestyle Crafts. This company (which used to be QuicKutz) has some great dies (if you are a cupcake baker, check out their cute paper liners - love them!) and letterpress supplies. There are some great ideas on their blog. I purchased some Nesting Dies and I also ordered a couple of New Releases on their online store. There is always something new to buy!

I cut this little gift card at the store with a Nesting Die and some of their "Sweet and Spicy" paper and I embellished & assembled it (I used SU and MS punches and a Hero Arts sentiment) when I got home. The die creates nice embossed edges without the extra embossing step required with Spellbinders dies.

I also want to show you this adorable cupcake apron that my crafting buddy Antoinette gave me. Too cute, eh? I guess she is tired of seeing me wearing ink, glue and glitter!  Why?!  I added the pockets, which I made from a vintage linen napkin, and I made the name badge for when I teach/take classes.  Thanks again, sweet pal.  

Hope you have a glorious weekend! We are off to our little slice of heaven in Calistoga, in the Napa Valley.
