Bonjour - Lawnscaping Challenge #112


Hi friends! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #112: Embossing! I decided to go old school and use an embossing folder to create a frame for my card. I haven't used an embossing folder in ages! I forgot what a dynamic look it gives. It takes an otherwise simple card and just elevates it to the next level, don't you think?


I used images from Gleeful Gardens with the snail from Critters In The Burbs, and highlighted them with layers using the Large and Small Stitched Rectangles. I hope you enjoy!

Huge thanks to Lawn Fawn for generously sponsoring us with a FREE stamp set of our winner's choice! This close to release day, that's got to come in pretty handy! ;)

Sour Cream Container Teacher Gifts - Lawnscaping Challenge #111


Hey friends! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #111: Back To School! Can you believe some of the kids are headed back already? My kids don't start until late August, but I just can't believe how fast the summer has gone. 

We like to start the school year by giving our teachers a small token of appreciation and these Sour Cream Container Teacher Gifts are the perfect solution! I used Lawn Fawn's A Good Apple and My Silly Valentine along with the Small Stitched Circle Stackables and Scalloped Circle Stackables for my tag. The papers were from a retired Lawn Fawn Petite Paper Pack.

So quick and easy to whip up and they can be filled with a variety of goodies from office supplies to candy. What's even better is that they are fully customizable, making them awesome to give as anything from birthday, shower, or even wedding favors, to Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.

Check out the video below that I made awhile back on how to put these babies together using minimal supplies and just 15 minutes of your time. Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right to watch there in HD and please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe!

You Color My World - Lawnscaping Challenge #110


Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #110: Color! This round is all about being inspired by the rainbow. I have just been having a blast with the new Lawn Fawn Fintastic Friends stamp set and I just knew that a colorful underwater scene would be perfect for this challenge.

I watercolored my background to look like a sunset, and my ocean to look like the deep blue sea, then added in my fish, along with a few images from Life Is Good and a sentiment from Starry Backdrops. I also used the new Ocean Wave Borders and the Large Stitched Rectangles dies on my panel.



Huge thanks to Lawn Fawn for generously sponsoring us with a FREE stamp set to our winner! Please head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team samples and link up your own rainbow-inspried projects to play along!

Best Fishes - Lawnscaping Challenge #109


Hey friends! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #109! I know it's been a few weeks since I last posted - things have finally been moving ahead with the home we're building and I've been swamped in all those details. But I had to take a break and get crafty for our Sparkle and Shine Challenge! 

I started out by watercoloring my background and sea critters with Distress Inks. I highlighted the new Fintastic Friends set by Lawn Fawn but I also threw in the cute little octopus from Critters In The Sea. Just look at his smile now that he's surrounded by all those happy, bright colored fish! 


Since our challenge is to Sparkle and Shine, I misted everything with some Glimmer Mist, which you can see a little better in this photo. I also added some Sparkling Clear sequins by way of bubbles.

 We want to extend a huge thanks to Ellen Hutson, LLC for sponsoring our challenge with a generous $25 gift certificate to our winner! Please hop over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team projects and don't forget to link up your sparkly designs to be entered to win!

Have an awesome day!

Ella's Unforgettable Birthday


Hey friends! Today I wanted to share another card made with the adorably sweet Mama Elephant Ella & Friends stamp set. This is still one of my most favorite stamp sets that's released this year. I think I could make 100 cards with this set and never do the same one twice. Just so many options!

I'd like to enter this card in the Mama Elephant Stamp With ME Flickr Challenge and also in the Simon Says Stamp Friends or Superhero Wednesday Challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Let's Party - Lawnscaping Challenge #108


Happy Monday, friends! I'm here today with Lawnscaping Challenge #108: Stars and Stripes. Whether you choose to pay tribute to the upcoming July 4th holiday or just use those stars and stripes as a fun graphic accent, it's up to you! I chose a bit of a minimalist approach, choosing to interpret the challenge in my patterned paper. The Lawn Fawn Petite Patterns: Beachside 6x6 papers worked perfectly for this card. I paired it by using the cute new set, Party Animals, and watercolored it with my Distress Markers.


We want to give huge thanks to the amazing folks at Lawn Fawn for sponsoring this challenge with a FREE stamp set of the winners choice! Awesome!


Now please head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog and check out the rest of the amazing design team samples and link up your stars and stripes projects to play along. Happy stamping!

Spot In My Heart Pop Up (video tutorial)


Hey friends, happy Saturday! This morning I just wanted to share a card that I made yesterday using a bunch of the new, cute Mama Elephant stamps and dies. I'd been in a bit of a crafting slump, but these new goodies inspired me to play. I used Playful PupsSmall Talk, one of the Grassy Trio, and of course the Pop Up Trio because I just had to make a pop up card.


While I was at it, I decided to go ahead and film it so you guys can see how the whole thing came together. Click the YouTube icon at the bottom right to view it there in HD and please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe. It really means so much.



I'll be entering this in the Mama Elephant June Challenge: White Space, even though much of my "white space" is actually aqua. I think it still represents the minimalist spirit of the challenge. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an awesome day!
