Merry Christmas

I have to say, seeing the first the images of this die set, and then receiving them, I was so excited!  Wreaths are very seasonal, and you can completely change the look of the wreath by using different papers and elements.  I decided to create a Christmas themed wreath.  I love the classic green wreath and red bow, it just screams holidays.
I used a mix of green pattern paper and green card stock to give the wreath some depth.  Using white card stock, the background was embossed first with the woodgrain back drop and then die cut using a rectangle die for added interest.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink, trimmed and then cut the edges off to create a banner on the wreath. The red pattern paper is from the new Lawn Fawn Knit Picky pattern paper collection.

Halloween Gift Boxes

Hello friends! How is it the middle of September?  I saw someone the other day talking about only around 100-ish days until Christmas.  I was silently thinking, I just need to get through hurricane season lol.  Anyhow, Lawn Fawn has this cute little die called the Tiny Gift Box. You can create the boxes using pattern paper, or plain cardstock, whatever your preference is.  I die cut white cardstock, and then stamped images onto the die cut before adhering the box together. I enjoy customizing projects, especially for seasons.  Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, to see all of the wonderful projects using this die set!

1. Die cut white card stock using the tiny gift box die.
2. Stamp images onto the die cut
3. Color in the images.
4. Adhere the box together using a strong adhesive.
5. Tie twine bow, adhere to the box.

Before stamping onto the die cut, figure out what is the front, the top, the sides and bottom...this will help you not stamp anything upside down or backwards.
