A Candy Box Video Tutorial for La-La Land Crafts

Hello everyone!

Back in 2019 La-La Land Crafts were having a series of Christmas Tutorials and it was welcomed by the LLLC fans. This year we have decided to stick to this new tradition. My today's tutorial will be the #6 in the series (you are welcome to find the previous tutorials from the design team, as well as the other tutorials on the LLLC blog). There will be 14 of them, by the way.

I like to include sweet treats with my gifts and cards, so a cute candy box can always come handy. If you want to try your hand at creating a similar box, join me in the craft room :)

Here is a direct link to the tutorial -

December 2020 NEW RELEASE - Day 2 + A Video Tip

Hello again! 

Welcome to the DAY 2 December Release showcase from La-La Land Crafts. I have a pop-up card to share with you today, which was created using the new LLLC Twist Pop-Up Die:

I can't even tell you how easy it is now to create this kind of pop-up cards with the die! It can't be easier than this for sure!

The rest of the products that I used include:
Home For Christmas Paper Pack
Dashing Through Clear Stamp Set
Poinsettia Die
Twist Pop-Up Die ½”
Mountains Die
Ski Lift Die
Double Stitched Hills Border Die
Winter Hill Border Die
Double Stitched Rectangles Die
Scalloped Rectangles Die

I adore the little pigs from the 'Dashing Through' new set! I colored them with Copics:
Piggies' Bodies: T4, R32, YR82, R30
Noses: RV95, RV93, R00
Reds: T6, E09, E07, R17
Browns: E57, E55, E53
Greys: N7, N6, N4, N2

***I have a quick video tip to share with you as well. Seems like it is possible to use the 1/2" twist and pop-up die on projects with a spine which is narrower than 1/2". The thing to remember is that you can use it on the narrower spines, but not on the wider ones. For example, if your spine is 3/4", you have to use the twist and pop-up die which has a 3/4" square opening in the  middle. 

I hope you like this card and give the new dies a try!

Have a great day!
