Lawn Fawn Scripty Love

Hi Friends

Thanks for stopping by today!  The Lawn Fawn Inspiration week continues. It's all about LOVE and Valentine's day. Today, we're featuring a new Scripty Die, and this one is Scripty Love. It is a great addition to the scripty Lawn Cuts.  

Here's what I created:

I put it with the Polka dot papers, Hearts Lawn Cuts, and the Tags.  I layered the "Love" sentiment using the various pinks to add some dimension.  (I should've photographed a side view to capture that time:))

Thanks for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn inspiration week

Hi Friends

I'm woefully late again in posting my projects for this Lawn Fawn mini-release.  Since I'm behind, I'm going to share two projects today.

First up, using the Bugs and Kisses stamp set:

This set is adorable! Although it's being released as a Valentine's set, it can be used well beyond Valentine's day. It will be so great for spring and summer projects.  It is so cute. 

Next, I'd like to share a project using Whale You Be Mine:

This is another fun set that will go with so many other cute Lawn Fawn sets.  It's super fun.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow

Lawnscaping Challenge #95

Hi Friends

Can you believe it's December already? Time sure does fly by! This year has gone so quickly.

It's time for a new Lawnscaping challenge.  This is a new monochromatic challenge, but focused on white on white.  I struggled with this at first but since I completed my first project, I've been doing a lot of white monochromatic projects since.  (Be forewarned, you will be seeing more white on white projects in the future).

This challenge is sponsored by the wonderful Simon Says Stamp online store.  The winner will receive a $25 shopping card at their great store.

This is what I created for the challenge.  It looks a little yellowish in this photo, but it's related to me learning to edit my photos better rather than the project.
Hope you decide to play along.  Be sure to visit the Lawnscaping blog for more inspiration.

Hugs and blessings

Anyway, I'm so excited to be joining in the 25 Days of Christmas Blog hop.  This hop is so timely since we are all going to be needing Christmas tags in the very near future!  Here's the tag I made for the hop.

Lawn Fawn Holiday week

Hi Friends

The Christmas season is fast approaching.  We do still have Thanksgiving to celebrate, but as card-makers, we all know we need to get a jump start on making those Christmas cards.  (And other fun Christmas crafty projects). In that spirit, Lawn Fawn is having a holiday inspiration week.

Lawn Fawn has so many fun Christmas sets! There are so many creative options for your Christmas projects.  I decided to use one of my all time favorites, Making Frosty Friends and coordinating dies.

I also used some of the Memento sparkle spray which I just love.  I did some paper-piecing with the Snow Days patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lawn Fawn + Imagine Crafts Week

Hi Friends

I hope you are doing well.  It's been a while since I've posted.  I had to get a new computer, and I decided to try a MacBook (refurbished), and I'm struggling to figure it out.  The experience is quite humbling actually. So today I am trying to post, but my project won't have the watermark on it because I have yet to conquer that!  (My hubby is the tech savvy one in our relationship).

ANYWAY, this week Lawn Fawn is joining up with Imagine Crafts to share some fun projects.  They were extremely generous and sent us a bunch of fun things to try out.  Here's what I came up with:

I decided to go with a shaker card.  I used the Memento inks Love Letter and Tuxedo Black (the best for coloring with Copics).  I also used the fun shimmer spritz in Sparkle and Frost.... love this stuff!  Those lovely sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.  I had to use some the new Lawn Fawn Snow Day paper.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you have any tips about editing photos in MacBook, I'd love to know them.
Hugs and blessings

Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring this challenge and will give the winner a gift certificate to shop in their online store.

So here’s what I came up with for this challenge. I used only paper! No stamping at all!!

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Hi Friends,

I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  We were busy and enjoyed some beautiful weather in Indianapolis.  I did some yard work to make the most of the gorgeous weather.

I did find some time for some indoor crafting activities.  I wanted to join in celebrating national coffee week by participating in the blog hop that is going on.  I'm not a crazed coffee drinker, but I do enjoy a cup in the morning.  I especially love this time of year when Pumpkin Spice Lattes abound.

Here's what I came up with using the Lawn Fawn, Love You a Latte stamp set.

This set is just so dang cute, I just love it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn Snow Days Paper

Hi Friends

The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues. I’ve been using them on most days of this week, but today, we feature the new Snow Days paper collection.

I decided to use the end strips on the 12X12 paper and made this simple card (with the stitched rectangles):


I was inspired by Pinterest where I found a similar card.  I thought it was perfect for the strips of paper at the end of the 12X12 paper. For mass producing Christmas cards, this would be a great option!

Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes

Hi Friends

How are you enjoying Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week?  I think the stamps from the latest release are some of the best ever. I just love them.

Today, I get to feature a project using the new Stitched Snowflakes Lawn Cuts.  These are so nice and intricate.  I used them to cut some glittery foam that I used on a card with the new Snow Days paper


Aren’t these die cuts just adorable? I have so many other project ideas in mind for these fabulous Lawn Cuts

Lawn Fawn Joy to the Woods

Hi Friends

This post is really late, but my computer is having serious issues, unfortunately.  Thankfully, I was able to get access to the blog after getting home from work, so I’m going to busily schedule my blog posts while I can.

So today, the Lawn Fawn Design Team is featuring projects from the totally adorable set, Joy to the Woods.

Here’s what I came up with:


I also used the Snow Day papers, Hillside border and new twine.  I love this set, it’s so much fun to build scenes.

Lawnscaping Challenge #89

this is 1536621_10202760957730878_1566991437_n

Hi Friends! 

Hope you’ve enjoyed the long weekend (to my US friends).  Our weekend has been busy, not enough R&R for me, but it’s been nice nonetheless.

Today, kicks off a new Lawnscaping challenge, and this one is a challenge… One Layer projects!  I know I have trouble keeping it to one layer. (no ribbon, twine, dimensions, eeek!)

This challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp


I decided to get a jump start on my Christmas cards. I figure that one layer Christmas cards are a good way to go, and I got to use some of the new stamps from the Lawn Fawn release which I LOVE! I made a set of cards since I  know I will need lots of Christmas cards! Here’s what I came up with:onelayermerryandbright2


These feature the new Lawn Fawn stamp set, Snow Day which is so adorable!  You are going to love it.

I know this is a tough challenge, but I know you are up for it. Come play along, I can’t wait to see what you create.

Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather and Thank you Tags


Hi Friends
I hope you’ve had fun during Lawn Fawn inspiration week.  Sorry that my posts are late.  My internet went down Tuesday night and then again Thursday morning, so I was out of luck when I wanted to post. 
Better late than never, I hope.  Here are my projects:
When I first saw this set, I was enamored. I love fall, it’s my favorite season.  Then I thought about using it to make a set of cards, one for each season, so that’s how I got to this set.  I used the new Woodgrain note cards which pairs so well with this set.
I also have projects for Thank You Tags:
It’s not a secret that I love patterned paper, so I went crazy making these cards using the new Thank You Tags set. It goes so well with other stamp sets. I wanted to use only the featured stamps, so I went all out with the patterned paper.
I’d love to know what you order from this new release. 
Hugs and blessings

Lawn Fawn Monster Mash

Hi Friends

I hope you have been having a great weekend and are enjoying the Lawn Fawn inspiration week.  This release is so full of awesome stuff.  Today we get to feature the new set “Monster Mash.”  This set is super cute and fun. It is so cute and fun, I know you are going to love it.  I decided to go with birthday themed cards.  I have a couple to share with you today.





I think these would be great for kids’ birthdays (or the young at heart!)

Lawn Fawn Forest Border

Hi Friends,

Happy Saturday!  Don’t you love the weekends? (Duh, right?)  This weekend is extra fun because it’s Lawn Fawn inspiration week, and I know you are all excited about the upcoming release. 

Today, we are featuring the new Lawn cut, Forest Border.  I went with a project featuring only the border, so it’s pretty minimalist. In fact, I have two projects, the first I wasn’t crazy about, so I made another that I like a little better.  Here they are:


You can see, the card is a little plain. I’m all for clean and simple, but this seemed to need something more. After thinking about it a little bit, I came up with this one:

forest border_Lynnette Kauffman

I am much happier with this project.  I used the textured woodgrain paper. I also added some details with my wink of stella pen and a strip of patterned paper from the Sweater Weather 6X6 pack (the border is cut from this as well on both projects).

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to head to the Lawn Fawn blog where the design team has created some really amazing projects.

Lawnscaping Challenge #88



HI Friends

I’m a bit late posting my project for the newest Lawnscaping Challenge.  This challenge features incorporating texture into your project.

This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn. The winner will get the stamp set of their choice, yay!

I decided to do something a little different for this challenge. I had a mini album covered in burlap, so I decided to decorate the cover with additional burlap. Now, I just need to scrap some pages within the album!


As you can see, I didn’t stamp at all, but I used several Lawn Cuts for this project (Quinn’s ABCs, hearts, tags)

We hope you decide to play along with this super fun challenge.

Hugs and blessings
