December 25 - Lawnscaping Challenge #94


Happy Monday! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #94! Can you believe we are just SIX challenges away from our 100th challenge? So super exciting! Today's is all about the numbers. So often, we forget to use numbers on a card or project but they can really be an awesome, graphic addition and add a touch of unexpected flair to your design. I am SUPER stoked to see what you all come up with! I think this is going to be a really creative and fun one.



For my card, I wanted to continue with my holiday card making so December 25th was the obvious theme for me to go with. I started off by stamping my background with Deck The Halls in Memento Luxe inks, then die cut a few tags with the Tag You're It dies. I used the December sentiment from Say Cheese Too and the 25 from Quinns 123s. I finished off the card with a button snowflake threaded with Peppermint Lawn Trimmings and some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh

Please head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team samples and link up your number projects to play along.

HUGE, huge thanks to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring our challenge with a FREE stamp set of our winners choice. We love you, Lawn Fawn!

Joy To Creatures Great and Small


Hi friends! Hope you're having a peaceful Sunday. I'm about to head up to my craft room for a little afternoon play time, but before I go, I wanted to get this card posted. Remember in my 2014 Holiday Card Series #1, I stamped out all those extra WPlus9 Winter Woodland images using the rock and roll technique? Well this weekend, I decided to put them to good use on this card. I added papers from the Sleigh Bells Ring 6x6 by MME, which I am LOVING. Classic color palette with fun, graphic prints. I die cut them with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 1 and Stitched Duos 1 dies.

I specifically created this with the current Festive Friday #44 Challenge in mind, which is this great inspiration photo. There's still a few days to play along if you haven't already!

Season's Greetings Mice



Happy Friday, friends! We made it through another week. Man, this one was a bit of a doozy for me. How about you? I've been fighting a case of the flu and even lost my voice for a few days. No voice = no videos. But I hope I'm on the mend. 

I did manage to squeeze in some crafty time yesterday though and I spent it coloring up this sweet Moonbeam Meadow "Christmas Kisses" image from Crafter's Companion. I used Spectrum Noir shades IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG7, IG8, IG10, EB6, TN2, TN3, PP2, DG3, DG4, and DR3. Then I inked the background with Distress Inks in Olive Grove and Forest Moss. I flicked it with some water and gold shimmer spray to finish it off.

I chose the entire color scheme for the card based on the current Festive Friday Challenge #44. If you haven't played along yet, you definitely should! 


Have a wonderful weekend! We're buried in snow! We set a record with 12.6 inches so far in the last 24 hours. Are you buried too?

A Very Fawny Holiday Week - Day 4


Welcome back! We're already at Day 4 of the Very Fawny Holiday Week, can you believe it? There's been so much inspiration, I've just been blown away by the talent of all these fabulous girls.
If you haven't been over to check it out, you MUST!


Today I'm sharing this cute little holiday card that I created using the Snow Day stamps, dies, and the petite paper pack. I wanted to keep it simple and sweet and let the patterned paper strip be my sentiment. I added some splatters and sequins and finished up with peppermint lawn trimmings

I hope you like it! Please go check out all the wonderful creations the other girls came up with, displayed on the Lawn Fawn blog. They're really incredible!

A Very Fawny Holiday - Day 2


Hi there! Welcome back to Day 2 of A Very Fawny Holiday Week at Lawn Fawn! If Day 1 knocked your socks off, you are going to LOVE Day 2! Once again, I have two special projects to share with you, beginning with this Paper Mug Favor. I have a video tutorial on an everyday version of this project already, and I just had to make a holiday themed version as well. This time I used the Peace Joy Love papers as my base and bottom layer tag cut from the Tag You're It dies, and the Love You A Latte stamp set to dress it all up. Peppermint Lawn Trimmings were the perfect finishing touch.




For my second project, I just had to use the cute little chipmunk from Joy To The Woods. I just love him! And those birch trees! Stunning. I cut my focal panel with the Stitched Journaling Card die and added snowdrifts with Stitched Hillside Borders. A couple strips of paper from the Peace Joy Love collection, a sentiment from Bows And Holly and Mistletoe Lawn Trimmings finishes off this card.



I hope you enjoyed my projects for Day 2 of A Very Fawny Holiday Week! Please stop by the Lawn Fawn blog to check out the other AMAZING projects and turn back in all week for as much inspiration as you can handle!

A Very Fawny Holiday Week - Day 1


Hey there, friends! I am super excited to be taking part in A Very Fawny Holiday Week where the Lawnscaping Challenges girls are teaming up with the Lawn Fawn design team girls to bring you LOADS of holiday inspiration! Make sure to tune in each day to have your socks knocked off! And did I mention, there's prizes? 

Today I happen to have TWO projects featured on the Lawn Fawn blog, the first being this sweet cupcake topper featuring Winter Penguin. He's definitely the star of the show here, but I also used a number of dies including Circle StackablesScalloped Circle Stackables, and Stitched Hillside Borders.



For my second project today, I just HAD to use the narwhal from Critters In The Arctic. I just love him so much! I created an Aurora Borealis background with my Distress Inks, then added some icy glacier banks with the Stitched Hillside Borders. For my sentiment, I pulled out Joy To The Woods and embossed that along with snowflakes in Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder by Ranger.


This past Saturday my family and I went to visit the Carnegie Museum of Natural History Museum in Pittsburgh and one of my favorite parts was the Polar Life Exhibit where I saw this gorgeous little hand-carved ivory narwhal. It was just too sweet not to share.


Please head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog to check out all the other amazing Very Fawny Holiday Week samples created by the rest of the girls and don't forget to come back again tomorrow for Day 2! See you then!


Be Jolly - Holiday Card Series #5


 Hey crafty friends! Today I'm here to share the next installment in my 2014 Holiday Card Series. Day #5 features this adorable Be Jollysnowman stamp and die set from Avery Elle. Isn't he a cutie?

To make him even more fun, I decided to pull out my Flower Soft, which I hadn't used in ages! It's funny how those things get set aside and forgotten about. I'm glad I remembered to pull it out today though. I think it makes him extra special. Watch the video and see if you agree. ;)

Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner to watch there in HD and please don't forget to comment, like, and subscribe! It truly means a lot.



I also wanted to mention that I made this card because I was inspired by the current AEIheartU Challenge #18 - Holiday. It's been my goal this month especially to participate in more challenges and interact more with all the other amazing crafters out there!


Also, this card will be going to the Caring Hearts Card Drive benefitting the elderly in nursing homes. Won't you consider making a few extra cards and blessing others with them this holiday season?
