Lawn Fawn: My Silly Valentine sneak

Today the designers for Lawn Fawn are showing sneaks of the upcoming stamp set called, My Silly Valentine.
This set is going to make you smile!
Just looking at it makes me smile, it is a happy stamp set, but I think all Lawn Fawn stamp sets are happy.
A clean & balanced card for you today.
A perfectly balanced card is always what I strive to make, whether it is graphic & clean or maybe a little layered card, balance will always make it shine (in my opinion).
Some nice textured card stock, pretty pattern paper, twine, foam tape, a border punch and some markers.

Lawn Fawn Trimmings

Today Lawn Fawn is adding some fun additions to the store.  
A few ribbon sets called, Chipper & Dapper.
Today I am using two of the ribbon trimmings from the Chipper set, that I paired with the Frosties stamp set.
Have you all started on your Christmas cards?
I only have around 10 done.
But, I am sure somehow, I will get them all finished.

The inspiration for this card came from the Dean Martin song called "Let it Snow".
(click on the link to listen to this it, it will make you happy!)
I started my card, with a kraft card base.
Next, I layered some of The Girls Paperie Tinsel & Twig pattern paper.
Snowfall, to be exact.
This paper screams Happy Holidays to me.
If you are still looking for some trendy, and very beautiful Christmas pattern paper.  Tinsel and Twig is one of my favorites right now.  I bought mine at my local scrap book store, however, I am sure Two Peas or sell it.
Once my pattern paper was adhered, I stamped my "let it snow" sentiment three times in red ink, then stamped my snowflakes all over in a green ink, both from the Frosties stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
Next, I added my super cute trimmings (which included my favorite twine!), and finished it off with the Flower Market Crepe Paper snowflake embellishment, again from The Girls Paperie.
I love this card!
I think I will make a few more, because it makes me that happy!!

A cute little paper box

Are you all ready for Thanksgiving?  
I have all my shopping done, I just need to start prepping some of the dishes I am making.
My children are home this week, so trying to keep a clean house, has been fun lol.

Today, I am sharing a cute little gift box I made using some October Afternoon paper I had.  I actually cut my pattern paper with a Spellbinders Grand Square die, before I scored the paper.  This ensured that I had perfect measurements for the top and bottom of the box.  
Once my box was put together, I wrapped ribbon around it & tied a pretty bow.  The tag was created by using the Bows & Holly stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  After I stamped and fussy cut it out, I punched a hole at the top and attached it to the center of a bow using bakers twine and a button.

Making these boxes are quite easy, and really only take a few minutes to make.

Materials Used:
October Afternoon pattern paper
PTI ribbon
Jillibean Soup bakers twine
white button
Memento ink

Today I am using the Spellbinders LF-114 Grand Circles die template to create this mini-book, it is actually my December Daily album for this upcoming December (this is my foundation, my pictures will be added in Dec).  My December, is going to be really busy an also very special, so this is the perfect way for myself to remain in the moment this holiday season, and a great way to remember the little things I often forget about.  To create this album, I went through my pattern paper, card stock etc... that I had been hoarding for that "special" project, and cut/embossed the paper using the largest die in the Grand Circles die template set.  I then simply embellished each page, so that when each day rolls around, all I need to do is journal and slap a picture down (easy peasy right!).  There are 7 dies in the Grand Circles set, ranging is size from 4 1/4 inches up to 7 1/4 inches, this would make each die around $7 (is that not a steal or what!)  Because I used so much product on this project, I will write a supply list for each page at the bottom of this post.  You can click on each picture, to enlarge it as well.

Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the!  One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today.  Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win.  Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22, and they will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim the prizes.

Thank you!

Shaped Christmas Card using Spellbinder die templates & Ginak stamps

November 10th, really?
Is anyone else a little freaked out that there are only 44 days until Christmas?  I am, for sure!  I have a head start on my shopping for my children, well for my son.  Shopping for a 14 year old daughter, is a little hard not to mention expensive.  With my husbands upcoming deployment, we will have family visiting for 2 weeks in December, which means I need to be really organized and squared away.  I really like to enjoy the holidays, so I am trying to get some Christmas/Holiday cards done a little early.

I love to make shaped cards, and using my Spellbinders die templates make it so easy.  For the base of this card I took out my Grand Labels One dies.  I cut/embossed some card stock, then scored it down the center to create the base of the card (around 3 x 6 inches).  I did the same using some pretty pattern paper.  I stamped the smallest ornament from the GinaK Heirloom Ornament stamp set, using some Brilliance ink.  I then used the coordinating die from the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament Nestabilities set, placed it over the stamped image and cut/embossed the card stock.  If you get worried about your die or card stock moving, just tape the die down.  I ran some ribbon around the card, tied a bow, then attached the die cut ornaments to ribbon using twine.  After I stamped the sentiment, I added some bling to the ornaments.

Supplies used:
Spellbinders LF-161 Grand  Labels One
Spellbinders S4-283 Heirloom Ornament
GinaK Heirloom Ornament stamp set
Brilliance ink
We R Memory Keepers paper
white card stock
KaiserCraft bling
May Arts twine
American Crafts ribbon
Maya Road flower

Lawn Fawn Jessie's ABC's sneak

Today the Lawn Fawn design team are sneaking projects using an alphabet stamp set called, Jessie's ABC's.
For my project, I decided to make a place card, for a party.
I also incorporated the party hat from the Hats off to you stamp set.  Both will be available November 4th.  
Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, and leave a comment to win this stamp set.
Also, take a little blog hop to see what all of the designers created with this set.
To create the place I card, I used the Spellbinders Lacey Circles largest die, cut/embossed it, then scored it in half.  Then layered it with another embossed Lacey Circle die cut, from pattern paper.  The party hats were colored in with Copic markers & paper pieced onto the place tag.

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Jessie's ABC's & Hats off to you
MME pattern paper
American Crafts this to that foam tape
Copic markers
Spellbinders S4-293 Lacey Circles

Lawn Fawn sneak: Hats off to you

Today, I get to sneak a new set called Hats Off to You, from Lawn Fawn.
This is the perfect coordinating set to add fun hats to the Lawn Fawn Critters, or to use on its own like I did today.  I used the graduation cap from this set, along with Bannerific & Sophie's Sentiments.  So wonderful that I can mix and match the sets, and my card still looks cohesive.  
The card I created, was inspired by what I would give my daughter on her graduation.  Something really feminine & delicate just like her.  Can I brag for a minute?  My daughter is rocking her first year in High School!  She has a tough honors load, is on the school news paper, in the Christian Athletes Fellowship club, just finishing up with Cross Country & just found out yesterday she made the JV Soccer team!  Did I mention her GPA is a 4.5?!?!  I am so, so proud of her!  Even though, her graduation is years away, I would want to give her a beautiful card like this.  Isn't it fun to see how many different styles you can make one set become!  Make sure to go visit the Lawn Fawn blog, for your chance to win this stamp set, as well as the rest of the designers, who made amazing projects with this set.
I stamped the cap & banner onto coordinating pattern paper & then colored in the cap with Copic markers.

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Hats off to you, Bannerific, Sophie's Sentiments
Ivory card stock
Pink Paislee pattern paper

Perfect for making cute, cute, cute winter cards!!

3.  Stamp snowflakes in a white ink, ink the edges of the card stock piece.
