Getting busy over the holidays??

We always want to do cute little things for our neighbors, co-workers and friends but suddenly the holidays are here and you've run out of time!!  You can make up some of these chocolate bar wrappers quickly and they'll look extra cute with Lifestyle Craft dies!!  Here is the "poem" to add to the bar:  Christmas Fudge Poem

Gift Idea.....

Looking at getting a head start on your Holiday Gifts??  Here is an idea sure to please any crafter on your list!!  Purchase a clear dinner plate (you can use round or square), cut your template (base) to fit the inside of the plate and then decorate as desired. Attach each base to plate with velcro circles or magnets so you can "swap out".  I've done an insert for each season of the year, Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall ~ shown is Fall and Winter inserts.  You can even make more for each holiday (Christmas, Valentine's, Easter, Halloween, etc.)
(dies used: 2x2 maple leaf, 4x4 leaves, Nutmeg Alphabet, 4x8 Sketchbook Alphabet and large Snowflakes)

Also look for a charming mix of 2x2s, 4x4s, Cookie Cutter Shapes and Border dies that can easily embellish the gift set pockets, or can stand on their own when placed on holiday cards, gift tags, ornaments, and layouts.

QuicKutz is changing their name and packaging.......

QuicKutz is now LifeStyle Crafts and you'll see the change of name and packaging on Tuesday, November 9th when the new release comes out!!  You probably will not notice a huge difference, just the new logo on the upper left corner of the packaging but one extra touch I like is now on the back of each die, there is the name of the die with a description of what to use the die for!! Awesome at getting our creative mojo going!!  See you Tuesday, November 9th for the Winter Wonderland Release and also the Winter Wishes Gift Set ~ I think this release and gift set will be a huge hit ~ LifeStyle Crafts is already stating most dies are sold out!!
