Amy believes that everyone, regardless of skill level or experience, possesses the ability to create something beautiful, and Positively Splendid was born of her passion for helping others harness their innate creative potential.
There are some packages that arrive at my doorstep that make me feel like a kid in a candy store. When I tore open the box of goodies containing the brand-spankin’-new dies from the Just for You release from Lifestyle Crafts, I was giddy with excitement!
These two sets of dies were what first inspired me to create my own metal tags with empty Coke cans using my Epic machine. That’s right: all of the stamped metal tags you see here started off life as humble beverage cans!
I couldn’t possibly be more smitten with these Bakery Boxes. I assembled a few to house small Christmas gifts for special recipients. In this case, the gift packaging will be a gift in and of itself!
These Rosette dies are downright yummy, too! I used them to create these little ornaments that will double as gift tags. I cannot say enough how much of a pleasure it was to put together this type of paper medallion without having to score and trim like you typically would. These dies do all of the hard work for you!
I love both rosette styles, but isn’t the one with the scalloped edge particularly charming?
Did you know that all of the Lifestyle crafts dies are compatible with any manual cutting machine? So, even if you have a Cuttlebug, Big Shot, or other machine, you can still play along!
As always, my lovely readers will receive 20% off these and other Lifestyle Crafts products simply be entering the code SPLENDID at checkout!
