    I just signed up for and paid via paypal for one year of liveandlove cards. but I can’t log in, I must have typed my e-mail address or something wrong. Can you please help me

  2. This is a great idea! Love it!

  3. This is so adorable!!!

  4. Hi Darlene,

    I bought the dies for this set & am making these cards with friends. As we use the tree die, the cardstock is sticking in the die more and more & it’s to remove the little trees without crushing them…any ideas for the trees to be released easier from the die? Is there something we can put on the surface of the die

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      Hi Karen! There is a tiny hole at the top and bottom of the tree. If you stick your paper piercer into the hole, it will help to pop the tree out. I have also heard that you can use a piece of wax paper between your cardstock and the die. Hope this helps!

  5. So very cute!!! I love SSS and order on occasion. I will be sure to click through your link from now on.
