Introducing i-Crafter

This is a very exciting day and I've been waiting a while to share this awesome news!
I'd like to introduce you to a brand new company that I will be designing for called i-Crafter!
You may have heard of the very crafty and creative designer Lynda Kanase and if you
haven't then let me introduce her to you!
This new company is called i-Crafter and it is Lynda's baby.
Lynda has created some fun stamps and dies that are both
interactive and innovative and you are going to LOVE playing with them!
You can find Lynda over on her blog by clicking on this link:

I'd like to share with you some of Lynda's thoughts and philosophies on 
this brand new company in her own words.

i-Crafter is a fresh new company, truly inspired by crafters, for crafters.
What we believe:
We believe that CREATIVITY lives in all of us
That creativity is the IMAGINATION made visible
That LEARNING new things can and should be fun
That creativity flourishes when we take time to EXPERIMENT and make mistakes
That MAKING things with our hands is good for the soul
That CURIOSITY makes life infinitely more interesting

i-Crafter is a company backed by years of experience in the crafting industry.
Built from the ground up with a lot of blood, sweat and tears {of joy}
by people who truly like working with each other.

Let's make something together. -Lynda Kanase

Now that we have the introductions out of the way let's get to the FUN STUFF!
Lynda's new company is being revealed at Creativation 2020 this weekend!
She will be showcasing her awesome products and introducing her new
company to the crafty world!
If you happen to be there this weekend make sure you stop by
Booth 2357 and say hello!
I am extremely honored to be part of Lynda's talented design team
and today you can hop around to our blogs to see some of the fun
projects we've been making in preparation for the January release!

Today I am sharing some projects using the new products
being released this month.
There are 4 dies and 1 stamp set being released this month:

My first card features the interactive Heart Hands Wiper Dies

These hands actually come together to form a heart when you open up the card!
This die set also comes with the word "Love", which you see on the front of
the card,  as well
as the slotted heart you see on the front and inside of the card.
The possibilities are endless as to what you can put in between those 
cute hands when they open up!

My next card features the Heart Maze Dies

I am just in love with this die! It actually cuts out a maze in the shape of a heart!
It's adorable and the heart with the keyhole and the key come with the 
set as well! I did not have the matching Amaze Me stamp set when I made this card
so I printed out a sentiment from my computer that matched the theme.
There is however a stamp set that goes with these dies that has some
adorable sentiments like "You AMAZE me" and "I'm LOST without you".
Also included in the stamp set is a stamped image of a square maze.

After I received the stamp set I made this card that features 
one of the sentiments and the square maze.

The next die set being released this month is called the Zip Gift Tag Dies

This cool die makes a gift tag that has a zipper element to reveal a gift card
inside of your tag. It's a surprise until the recipient "unzips" the pull tab to 
reveal the surprise on the inside. On this tag you can see the "Birthday Cake"
and "For You" cut outs that are included with this die set. 
There are several other dies included to allow you to personalize your
tags like flowers, a star and a heart.

The last project I have for you today features the Making Faces Die Set

This die set comes with multiple different male and female faces that you can customize.
There is also an extra die that you can use to cut out glasses, bowties and even a
goatee! You can literally make any different combination of hair color or skin
color or accessories for men or women.
I chose to give my couple some red and blue hair and I also used the base
of the Zip Gift Tag Dies as the background for this tag.
If you notice I used the "Love" die from the Heart Hands Wiper die 
on this tag and I die cut it a second time so I would have the letter "u".
It's actually the "v" from the "Love" word but I think it doubles 
pretty well as the letter "u" in this case.

I would love to share some more projects with you but I think
I'll save a few for later in the month.

I hope you're hopping along with the design team for 
all the inspiration and fun!
