Happy Tuesday! I am so excited to share my projects with Lifestyle Crafts April Release. Aren't they just fun? This is also the first release I designed as a trail design team member:) You can find more dt projects here!  I am sharing some new projects here today and some of my favorites with instructions :) L april release snapshot Circus theme is perfect for parties in Spring and Summer! And the Dress Up die is great for any masculine projects! I cannot help but use the Basic Party Picks I won from Paper Crafts Magazine for my last party project :) Scallops are cut with Scallop Punches Die These invitations are easy for mass production, using Tent and Ringmaster dies. Invitations Place Holders like these will sure bring a smile on a face :) Put the cutting plate at the edge of the feet level to get this partially die-cut look! :) Score and fold the holders after die cutting to avoid lines across the elephant  shapes. Using Elephant Cracker and Ringmaster Dies. Elephant place cards Party favors? Score and fold the Tent at top to get this 3D look. (the rectangle box die is a perfect match!) Big top They can be in the wild and for ladies too! Love how perfectly baby elephant is holding on to his/her mother's tail! (They are from Africa where female elephants have tusks too! Wink!) Using Elephant Cracker, Animals and Ringmaster. Mom Or some simple note/photo holders: Adhere two small craft pins on the back of the lion face:) I painted the pins with some acrylic paints. Using Animals Die Lion note holders Or to frame a photo? Ok, maybe just for boys ;) The bow-tie is from the Dress Up Die. How much fun will it be on scrapbook pages? Make multiples and form a border? Maybe I should start scrapbooking? LOL Using Animals, Dress Up and Ringmaster. Lion Small note cards (3" x 3") to go into a sweetie's lunch box? Using Concessions and Ringmaster. Gno  you re sweet Graduation cards? We have one! :) I cut the balloon three times on different cardstocks, layered them and added some machine stitches in the middle. The quote mark from the Ringmaster Alphabet die is so cute that I had to use it! Some other fun sentiments can be "What's Up?", "Love is in the Air", "Thank you for the Lift!" etc. No wonder hot air balloons are popping up everywhere, right?;) Using Hot Air Balloon and Ringmaster. Up up  away I think my favorite in this release is the Tent. So versatile! Bend it slightly to get this 3D look! Also using Carousel. Enjoy the ride I've found the perfect background for it! Sunburst from Splendor printing plates set: Letterpress sunburst I am in love with the L letterpress look! You can find the tutorial videos here!
