 Latisha‘s Yay, Kites! design is so fun and creative! I love how she used “congrats” from Big Scripty Words to ground the cute critters!

 I love how Chari created her adorable Yay, Kites! scene on the Cross-Stitched Circle shape, framed with the Scalloped Circle cut from Guava cardstock. This is such a happy little card!

Yay! Kristin‘s Yay, Kites! design is full of joy! I love how she used ink and the cloud shape to create the pretty fluffy clouds in the sky!

 Chari‘s birthday card is so beautiful! I love how she combined “birthday” from Big Scripty Words with “happy” stamped out on colorful Party Balloons!

It looks like the cute squirrel and bunny from Yay, Kites! are floating through the air on Nichol‘s adorable thank you card. I love the tiny hearts sprinkled across the pretty pastel inked sky!

I love how Kristin used Big Scripty Words to create a fun Bingo-themed Congrats card!
She used Smitty’s ABCs and numbers from our new Plan On It: Calendar to make the cute Bingo card!

 Lynnette‘s card is so whimsical with the bunny and bird from Yay, Kites! flying the colorful kite standing in the clouds!

 Melissa S. shares a pretty layout to inspire your springtime scrapbook pages! She created her title by combining Scripty Hello die cut from felt with Cole’s ABCs to spell out Spring! Perfectly Plaid and Let’s Polka in the Meadow work wonderfully together to frame the happy photos!

470 thoughts on “Lawn Fawn Intro: Yay, Kites! and Big Scripty Words

  1. Love today's cards! My favourite place to fly a kite is the cliffs at Leigh on Sea, UK. My grandparents always took us there to fly kites and it is always windy enough to get them up in the air.

  2. How adorable! Im definitely going to recreate elena's card!!
    I love flying a kite at the beach near my house. Particularly when there is the annual kite festival!

  3. I don't think I've ever flown a kite (or perhaps I did as a child without remembering), but there is a big open school yard close to where I live that I think would be perfect on a windy day for flying kites =)

  4. These are so fun! The anticipation is killing me. I can't wait to get my hands on the "big hugs", "thanks", and "hello" stamps and dies!

    But, first, favorite place to fly a kite – near the bay, in a parking lot where few cars ever park. There's just so much room to run around in!

  5. I hate to admit this, but I have never flown a kite! Yikes! But I love to watch them on a beach and I also love the song, "let's go fly a kite" from Mary Poppins!
    The little bunny and squirrel are the cutest!

  6. Once we were at a boardwalk beach arcade and we played games and we won prize tickets. We traded in our tickets for a kite and had a great time flying that cheesy little kite on the beach – so my fave place to fly a kite is the beach.

  7. oooh those words are awesome!
    I used to kite at a park near my house when I was little,
    always loved it!
    I remember one of partys when I was little,
    were me and my friends made our own kites!
    so fun!

  8. I have not often got a kite, but I remember that we go to the "Teufelsberg" in Germany. Today I would like to fly a kite on the "Tempelhofer Feld" (in the past the Airport Tempelhof). It's windy enough to have a good "kite-flight" πŸ™‚

  9. Love all the adorable designs! Oh gosh, I haven't flown a kite since I was a kid. πŸ˜€ If I was going to, I would fly it in the huge park that my backyard overlooks.

  10. Will need both of these for the scripts words! Very pretty πŸ™‚ I can't even remember the last time I flew a kite! lol but I'm thinking during spring in a nice open field πŸ™‚

    I'm SO EXCITED!!!
    The kites are CUTE & FUN too πŸ™‚
    The beach is the best place to fly kites … sand and surf and sunny skies!!!

  12. Gosh, I haven't flown a kite in ages, not sure where'd I'd go, so many trees around that it could get caught in. I'd look for a dog friendly place though so I could bring my best friend!

  13. These stamps are so versatile, especially love the scripty sayings as kite strings. I love kites and like to fly them in the park by my house.

  14. Those scripty words are amazing! So versatile and fun! Yay, Kites are awesome and those cute cuddly animals are perfect!! Loving all the beautiful cards everyone is making!

  15. Love these cards and new dies! Haven't flown a kite in years, but we used to go to a park where we used to live, and fly kites there. There was a lawn of grass that was perfect for flying kites as the trees were not close.

  16. Beautifully packed full of whimsical sweetness! Totally adorable! My intellectually disabled son flew a kite for the first time a few weeks back. He loved it! Kept yelling 'I did it' the whole time. Keep dreaming up the darling stamps!

  17. Love these. I loved flying kites on the hill of one of our farm fields. One of the few places with no trees and no power lines!

  18. My favorite place to fly a kite is at the beach! You have natures wind source, and the smell and the feel of sea spray while flying it just makes it all the more better! πŸ™‚

  19. Ultra cuteness happening here! Flying kites, with my niece and nephew, in the open field behind their house is my favourite place. Nothing better than enjoying fun-and-frolick with them!

  20. What a wonderful collection of cards being shared today. New products and samples are just the best ever! The kites are fun and the little critters too!

  21. Who couldn't smile seeing all this sweet loveliness … it's all so fabulous! Fave place to fly a kite … our top meadow … the breeze is usually perfect for it! Anita πŸ™‚

  22. So adorable! Love the inspiration cards! My favourite place to fly a kite, if I had one, woyld be the beach; open space and windy days… just perfect!

  23. Love these big scripty words!! So pretty!

    Our favorite place to fly kites (my son has a really cool giant airplane kite) is at the park near Butterfly World in Deerfield Beach, FL. There is so much open space and we make a day out of it exploring the park.

  24. Where do I love to fly a kite? There's a lake near my hometown where my parents would take us each summer. We'd swim, bbq, and fly kites! It was so much fun, and whenever we'd go home we'd always stop for ice cream on the way πŸ™‚

    All these cards are so beautiful!!

  25. Once again another adorable stamp & die set…can't wait to get my hands on them…
    My favorite place to fly kites is at the park down the street from our last house which was across the street from the airport. Thanks Lawn Fawn team!

  36. I literally cannot tell you the last time I flew a kite…probably as a teenager…so there's no way I can tell you where it was, 'twas so long ago!!

  37. I'd have to fly the kite in my backyard. it would be big enough – would
    have to hope for enough wind.
    Love the cards. The designs are so happy and fun.
    thanks for sharing and making my morning bright and cheerful.

  38. Such cute cards…I just adore those kites as well as the big scripty words. I love how the Lawn Fawn sets work so well together! My favorite place to fly a kite is the beach although it's been a very long time. I could fly them on a card though!

  39. AWE! These kites are so so cute!! My favorite place to fly a kite was when my boys were small at our local park/lake. They have big open areas used for soccer and baseball which were always perfect areas to fly kites on windy days and sit and have a picnic for lunch! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance!

  40. My dad used to take us out to the middle school's football field to fly kites when I was kid. It was really the only spot in the area that wasn't covered in trees to tangle our strings!

  41. We have a big yard. We like to fly our kites in the front yard. I love all of the card samples. The design team does a fabulous job.

  42. When I was growing up we used to go to the beach every weekend and fly kites. Seeing a kite in the sky always brings back those happy memories.

  46. How cute is this stamp set! I don't fly any kite, so I don't have any favorite place. But after I saw this stamp set, the place will be definitive my craft room πŸ™‚

  47. Yay Kites is so cute, and I love those scripty words! My fav place to fly a kite is at the annual Austin Kite Festival in Zilker Park! πŸ˜€

  48. These two sets go together so perfectly – beautiful cards and an awesome layout!
    I haven't flown a kite since I was a child at the beach. But I have fond memories (it's been a LONG time ago!).

  49. I saw the video this morning and was in awe. The big scripty words and matching dies are going to be my new staple, just like the Rectangle die that I use on almost every card (I use the rectangle frame now [love it] when I do not use the rectangle die) and I feel I am going to need this full set now. Thank you Kelly. πŸ™‚

  50. Wonderful creations! Love love LOVE this release!!! β™₯

    Kite flying….oh my. I haven't flown a kite in YEARS! Where we live now, I don't even know of a good place to fly one….lol. When my son was little, we used to fly a kite at my parents, but that's about it. Too many trees around us now to even think about flying one πŸ˜‰

  51. Super cute set! I've only ever flown a kite a couple of times but have fond memories of my dad trying to teach me how whilst on holiday on the south coast of England one year πŸ™‚

  52. The most fun I've ever had flying a kite was when I was about 13 in Seattle with my aunt and uncle! We had a wonderful day at the beach which included flying kites! It was so much fun! The little bunny and squirrel from the kite set is adorable!

  53. So very excited about all these fab new products – this set is so cute and I love the big words!! You never disappoint – I love Lawn Fawn!!! My favorite place to fly a kite is in the big open fiend behind my children's elementary school!!

  54. I haven't flown a kite in over a decade, but when I did I really loved to do it at the beach. Great open space and wonderful breezes made it so fun and easy.

  55. Cute stamps and projects! I don't know that I've ever told anyone this but I actually don't like to fly kites–as a kid it freaked me out the one time I flew one.

  56. My favorite place to fly kites is at the beach. I am so in love with this newest release and will have a hard time trying to narrow down my list to fit my budget LOL. Great job as always!

  57. I love the cards made with these big scripty words and the other stamp sets. As to flying a kite, I have not done it since our children were little and they are all in their 30's and 40's. But I remember we had so much fun flying them in the pasture located below the house where there was no worry about trees or electric lines to interfere with flying magic. It was a great bonding thing. I remember I even made kites for them. And, they worked too!

  58. Just the sweetest! Love the way you used the Big Scripty Words, and who doesn't love kites. I haven't done that since I was a child, maybe I need to try it again!

  59. These are all fantastic cards and I have to say here (as I can't put a comment on Kristin's) her cards are truly amazing, just SO SWEET! A great job by everyone. My fav. place to fky a kite is i our back yard. We live on my husbands family farm and we have a HUGE hay field beside us. Our children used to fly them here and now our little grandsons can! Great memories here!

  60. Without a doubt my favorite place to fly a kite is on the shore of Lake Huron on Michigan. I love those new big scripty words, and adding them to the kites is a fabulous idea.

  61. We have a special meadow for flying kites. Every year there is a big kite festival with music and so on. Nearby is a large lake for bathing. It is a wonderfull place. I love all your cards you made today. These new dies are great.

  62. Every year there is a festival for flying kites, which happens on a big hill, while it's really windy.
    In fact I think It's coming up!

    I absolutely adore all the cards you guys made today, all of them are so special πŸ™‚ ( Including all your other posts too :3 )
    Another must have from Lawn Fawn – can't wait for the release day!

  63. What a fun Stan set! It's too adorable! Gosh, I haven't flown a kite since I was a kid and we'd go to the ball field right behind our house to fly kites. This inspires me to want to teach my son how to fly a kite!

  64. My favourite place to fly a kit is Minchinhampton Common, we used to visit my great aunt there before she died and we would always take a picnic out and fly kites up there πŸ˜€

  65. This stamp set is so adorable. I loved eh en My granpa took us to the beach or outside the city to fly our kites that we made. He was the best always enjoying spending time and teaching us many things.

  66. Great projects!

    I like to fly a kite in the mtns overlooking our valley. There is one spot that gets nice gusts of wind with a beautiful view.

  67. I really like the idea of using the different kite string lengths and scripty word sentiments as kite strings! I like to fly kites by the bay in open space near where the kite surfers hang out!

  68. Sooo darling! I think today's sets are my favorite so far. So many cute possibilities! πŸ™‚

    We live at the top of a windy hill so just going out into our culd-e-sac is a great place to fly a kite. πŸ˜‰

  69. Love the big scripty words so much! My favourite place to fly a kite is at my brother's house in his big backyard with my little niece and nephew…so fun!

  70. Seriously amazing cards and projects! Kudo's to the LF DT.
    My Dad and I always used to fly a kite every Summer. My FAVE place was the beach on Lake Huron at my Cousins cabin.
    I now have my Great Niece and Great Nephew both flying kites and they LOVE it. Would LOVE to win this set so I can make them mini albums and cards with. My Niece sends me pictures of all of them flying their kites with all these BIG smiles on their faces.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  71. I love these new sets and the adorable cards made by you and the design team! I love kites; we fly them at a local park with a large field.

  73. As shocking as it might sound, I've actually never flown a kite before. Guess I missed out on that fun activity. But I would think doing so at a nice beach would be amazing!

  74. Such cheerful and delightful cards! You and your DT always do a fabulous job of showcasing the new products! I love all the kite themed card inspiration as I have a large number of small paper kite embellishments that I've been looking for ways to use. So many great ideas! I will certainly have to add this new stamp set to my wish list. My favorite spot to fly a kite is on the beach…it's been awhile though:)

  75. There's a bluff where we go camping that's perfect for kite flying! There's also a beach on the Oregon coast that my husband loves to kite fly at πŸ™‚

  76. We living flying kites at Jockeys Ridge on the Outer Banks of NC. It is an enormous sand dune and is a great place for flying kites – my husband collects kites! Love these sets!

  77. Great cards from the DT today!!! I haven't flown a kite in a verrry long time! lol Used to like to fly in my husband's grandfathers farm/field.

  78. i don't have a favorite place to fly a kite as i don't do it very often but i do love seeing all the different kites! and i love the big scripty words as kite strings!

  79. I love Yay Kites and Big Scripty Words and can't wait to get them! I haven't flown kites in years, but we used to do so at a park when my kids were young. Those were fun times! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration and the chance to win!

  80. I don't think I've flown a kite in 25+ years. But the only thing cuter than a cute little Lawn Fawn critter is a cute critter flying a cute kite! So much springy fun!

  81. Bestest place to fly a kite is where there are NO HIGHLINES & not thick forest! By the sea works for me! The kites have so much possibility for card making.

  82. My favourite kite-flying spot is the park at the end of my street -away from the trees of course! (Learned that one the hard way!) :0 Love the cute critters with the kites: lovely!

  83. We live less than 5 miles from Flagler Beach which is known for all the kites flown there. We love to fly our kites there also. Love, love, love this release.

  84. I adore how you are using those beautiful scripty words – so creative! My favorite place to fly a kite when I was a child was the hill at the local school oval – it was steep and grassy and perfect for launching a kite. Today is a perfect kite flying day – a sunny, fall day here in Australia – maybe I should go hunt out my kite!

  85. My favorite place to fly a kite is on the lakefront of Lake Michigan. My hubby and I go every year and now the kids come along. It's a great time because it's just us and several other families picnicing, napping, throwing a frisbee. Summer at its best!

  86. I love the back ground on these cards so adorable☺️ And the kites are the cutest !!
    U guys keep out doing urselfs! Way to fo lawn fawn!

  87. So cute luv em I have two places I luv flying kites with my daughter our yard is quite large so that's one and down by the Hudson river a few minutes from me perfect amount of wind.

  88. love the new yay kites set, and the big scripty words!!! sooo many new ways to play! I haven't flown a kite since I was a kid, but we loved to go to the beach (I grew up in Hawai'i) and let the tradewinds take them high and far over the shore.

  89. I loVe the Big Scripty Words stamps and dies. Gotta have them!!!
    Thanks everyone for sharing your adorable projects.
    My fav place to fly a kite is a the beach.
    Crafty hugs,

  90. I can't fly a kite right now because of a severe back injury, but if I could, I would love to fly one on the beach. I've never done that before and think it would be so much fun. I love these new sentiments and matching word dies, too!

  91. My favorite place to fly a kite is anywhere there's a lot of wind and few trees! Trying to untangle a kite from a tree is not a fun thing to do! Love this adorable, fun stamp set.

  92. This will be a great release. I love to fly kite at El Morro fort. That is a spanish fort in Puerto Rico. It has a large expanse of grass in front and lots of wind. It's ideal for flying kites.

  93. We love to fly kites everywhere here we can, mostly at the big, open parks. Here in Wyoming its crazy windy so its tricky to fly a kite! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance!!

  94. Kites always bring a smile….love how you have shown how to pass that around with these wonderful ideas! Just look how many memories you've invoked in the comments….loving it!!

  95. So many fun products and the design team samples are amazing! I haven't flown a kite in years, but if I did, I'd probably take it to the beach at Presque Isle State Park. I should take my boys and do that this summer.

  96. Big Scripty Words are fantastic and everyone's cards are so beautiful. Our favourite park is always windy – it's Blaxland Riverside Park, and it's great for kite flying. A non-crowded beach is also good!

  97. Chicago was developed by some very smart people who set aside green spaces called Forest Preserves. We have a Rails to Trails biking system that is fantastic, and lots of parks! Many fun places to fly a kite!

  98. I love the critters and the kites and the scripty words! Did I leave anything out? Oh, I love your stamps and dies and I love your designers. Ya'll are a bunch of talented people!

  99. Soooo cute, love those cute critters and fun scripty words..
    In India we have a kite flying festival called "UTTRAYAN" and we would fly kites all day and night on our terrace, we all would get so tan.. But is always fun, friends and families all get together at one place, enjoy delicious food and sweets and loud music and belly ache laughters….

  100. Such a cute stamp set and such adorable cards you've all created! Makes me happy! I've honestly never been kiting/flown a kite (how do you say it?) but I would love to try and in that case the beach or among large green hills sounds like a fantastic place. Kindly/Vanessa

  101. Love ALL these cards. The stamps are so versatile and the dies make things easier too! would love to have these any time! πŸ™‚

  102. I love those big scripty words! Wonderfully versatile! Kite flying… the beach is nice but somewhere that if it comes down, I can get it back.

  103. My favorite place to fly a kite is in Virginia Beach, Virginia. It is called Mount Trashmore. It literally is a mountain made of trash. It is beautiful (you do not see the trash). Every time I think of flying a kite, I remember my mother taking me there. These cards bring back great memories. Thanks for all your hard work!

  104. Love Yay Kites and Big Scripty Words! Love the critters in Yay Kites too! Great sets. Thanks Lawn Fawn! Once we bought large kites to fly on the Pacific Coast. It was a blast!
    Craftqueen417 at yahoo

  105. I haven't flown a kite for years, but I did it in a field as a kid and at the beach as a kid and as an adult, just not lately. I still do have two kites in the closet so maybe the answer should be "on a hanger in the closet"!

  106. This (the scripty words) and the mermaids are my absolute favorites of the release. Flying a kite… wow… haven't done that for years now… So for now my favorite place to do that in is… my imagination! πŸ™‚ However, in a few years, my little baby girl will be big enough to give flying a kite a go, and we'll probably do it on some lovely meadow, or in the green area just outside our house! πŸ™‚
