Video Friday: Lawn Fawn Scallop Box Card by Lesley Oman

I have never made my love of Lawn Fawn products a secret on this blog. They regularly feature on my wishlist. So, it was with great excitement that I awaited news of their new products for this Spring. When I came across this video by Lesley Oman from Creativation, my excitement tripled.

Lawn Fawn Scalloped BOX Card Die aka. My Saviour

I love making box cards, but I very rarely make them. Why? Because they’re such a pain! All the measuring and hand cutting the box and then trying to fit it all together? I just don’t have the patience for it.  So when I discovered Lawn Fawn were releasing a die to solve all my problems, my heart soared.

This video from Lesley perfectly demonstrates what can be done with the new die, as shown by the range of designs on display in the video. It looks super easy to use, which is great for a crafter with a busy life! Unsuprisingly, I’m also quite taken with the Meow You Doin’ Stamp and Die Sets – check out the inspiration from Lawn Fawn below!

Long story short, I cannot wait for Lawn Fawn’s new offerings. I am always uneasy about ordering from outside the UK (mainly due to shipping costs), but with a big enough shopping list, I think I’m going to bite the bullet and go ahead with an order!

How about you guys? Has anything from Lawn Fawn’s new range taken your fancy?

30 Cards in 30 Days Challenge: Flip Card

I’ve really fallen in love with card making recently, but I’ve found myself with a couple of problems:

  1. All my cards are looking the same.
  2. I have so much in my stash, completely unused.

Searching the internet for some inspiration, I found this video from Gabrielle Pollacco, demonstrating a type of card I haven’t attempted yet.

Inspired by the video, I set about making my own, including these adorable stamps from Lawn Fawn – one off my ‘not used’ list.

But then I got thinking about the rest of my stash, and decided to set myself a little challenge – thirty cards, thirty days. My adventures into my craft stash will be posted daily over on my Instagram, or you can look out for the weekly round ups each Sunday.

If you fancy a peek at what’s to come, check out the list of prompts I’ve created for myself below!

Wishlist Wednesday: Lawn Fawn

Back in April, I managed to find some time off work to head to the Craft 4 Crafters show. On my best behaviour, I stuck to a strict budget, but temptation came in the shape of these next products. I resisted and put them on my mental wishlist instead, but it was a definite struggle.

I fall in love with anything cute and quirky, so of course I immediately fell in love with Lawn Fawn! The punny sentiments are just an added bonus. Plus, many of their amazing designs combine both dies and stamps, making for some amazing card designs.

It’s impossible for me to pick just one thing for my wishlist this week, so here’s my top three Lawn Fawn products of the moment that I hope to have coming my way soon!

1. Pizza My Heart

Pizza. PIZZA. There aren’t many things I love as much as pizza, which is  why this cute little stamp set is top of my wishlist. Don’t get my started on the cute little faces that you can add to these slices!

2. Critters Ever After

Hippogriffs and Dragons and Unicorns oh my! I have some perfect fairy tale themed cardstock I could partner with this for some adorable cards.

3. Plan on It

I love organisation and planning, and this stamps would made my Filofax even more beautiful! I’ve been tempted by bullet journaling recently as well, and this stamp set might make it a little less daunting! The tooth will definitely make dentist appointments a little less scary as well – just look at that little guy!
