fun with texture and Lifestyle Crafts


Thank you for stopping by today!

Today I have a few cards to share with you that I created using some of the brand new embossing folders from Lifestyle Crafts. In case you hadn't heard, Lifestyle Crafts/We R Memory Keepers was recently purchased by American Crafts. Now you can get even more great scrapbooking and crafting supplies all in one place.

For these cards I used the following supplies:

Lifestyle Crafts Evolution diecutting platform
Lifestyle Crafts Embossing folders: stripe, chevron, wood grain, polka dot
Lifestyle Crafts Albums Made Easy dies: Instagram frames, Icons
Lifestyle Crafts 4x12 vellum sheets
Lifestyle Crafts adhesive cork sheets
Lifestyle Crafts Kraft chipboard
We R Memory Keepers Albums Made Easy: Bloom journaling cards
We R Memory Keepers Enamel Shapes: Cool
Heidi Swapp sentiment sticker
American Crafts foam Thickers and cardstock

For this card I combined lots of  texture by using both the cork and the embossed paper. I used the larger of the two Instagram frames cut out of the cork and it worked so smoothly! I love that you can use the dies to cut so many different materials and it works well every time.

It is easy to use the embossing folders. All you have to do is cut your paper to size, put it inside the folder, close it and run it through your Evolution or other diecutting platform (Big Shot, etc.) 

It may be hard to tell in this main picture but below you can see the striped lines on the white vellum. It adds a bit of sophistication and detail to an otherwise simple card. I LOVE the Instagram frames die. I can see myself using this one over and over and over! This is the smaller of the two in the set.

For this last card I decided to try out the Lifestyle Crafts kraft cardstock. It runs as smooth as butter through the machine and works so well with the embossing folders! 

For this simple card I used the kraft carstock, a journaling card from the Bloom Albums Made Easy set, a cork heart cut using the Instagram Icons dies and a couple of enamel dots. It makes for a pretty, quick and easy card. 

Have you tried out the new dies or embossing folders from Lifestyle Crafts yet?
