It is the perfect combination of both age and beauty. It measures approximately 3.96 x 3.23 inches. You will find that it will add a touch of elegance to your crafting projects.

Lovely View
Our Lovely View die is an elegant, feminine spin on the old fashioned view finder that we played with as children. We have added a lace-like appeal to the outer edge, with beautiful and intricate detailed cuts in the interior. The center offers a delicate embossing detail to further enhance the elegant Victorian look of this Lovely View die. Measures 3.5 inches in diameter. It is the perfect combination of both age and beauty. You will find that it will add a touch of elegance to your crafting projects. 

All of our dies are manufactured in cooperation with Spellbinders and offer the very same versatility and standard of excellence.

Izzy's Bunnytime Tote Bag...Available for Purchase!!!

Hello Everyone!

I was playing around a little while back, trying out some new LDRS product ideas, and I came up with this tote bag.  I had painted this adorable CandiBean image 'Izzy's Bunnytimewith watercolors and I thought about how cute she was just sitting in the park reading a book to her little bunny friends!  I thought she would be super adorable on the front of a tote bag...for me...or anyone!  I have shown this bag to some of my friends and they all want one!  

So I thought I would make it available...for a short time...

This is a white cotton canvas bag.  It measures 13.5" tall x 13.5" wide x 3" deep (not including the strap) and is very sturdy.  If you are interested in one, email me HERE.  They cost only $14.99 + actual shipping.  I will send you a PayPal invoice once I calculate the shipping cost to your address.  We ship to anywhere in the world.  Your actual bag will not have the watermark that I had to add to this photo.

I really LOVE this bag!  I've been using it to carry all kinds of things around......craft supplies, books, papers, etc.  It's great for kids too!  They can carry their school supplies, trinkets and toys to a friends house, their own beach a towel, sandals, sunscreen, and sunglasses.  It's both versatile AND adorable!

NOTE:  This is not a 'do it yourself project'.  The LDRS Angel Policy restricts the use of electronic alteration, copies, or transfers.  This canvas bag is a licensed product of LDRS.

This is a closeup of 'Izzy's Bunnytime', handpainted with distress ink markers and water.  I did not add my usual shadows and background to this image because of the plan to use it on another object. 

If you're interested, check out my latest Distress Ink watercoloring tutorial on YouTube!  Don't forget to subscribe to the LDRS Craft Channel so you can receive notifications when we post new tutorials!!!

Thank you all for joining me today!  I hope I inspired you in some way :-) 

Don't forget to EMAIL ME to order a tote bag if you want one!

Valentine's Day...

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I was so incredibly busy this week that I ALMOST forgot about Valentine's Day!!!  Could you imagine?  I wasn't worried so much about me, but my son would have gone to school without Valentines to hand out to his classmates and I would have been clear out of the running for the 'Mother of the Year' award :-/

Fortunately, we had a house guest on Tuesday night and he just happened to show me a pic of the Valentines that his wife made with their kids.  They were simple and adorable.  So, he sent me the online link to the .pdf's and away we went!  It ended up being a family affair as hubby, son and I all got involved and created a bit of an assembly line.  It was a really fun project to do together and the result is super cute!

(took the pic with my phone and the colors on the paper are not showing up as pink as they really are)

Here's the link in case you want to give it a go next year ;-)

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day!!!
I hope you'll be spending some time with your loved one/ones.  Hubby and I are going out for a 'grown up dinner' and our son will be spending the night at his friend's house :-)
