The Dandy Day Be Yourself paper is a pretty backdrop for Melissa‘s photos of her adorable niece! I love how she added cute embellishments using the A Bug Deal coordinating dies for the branches and leaves! Her title is spelled out with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs on black Shimmer cardstock!

How cool is this? Elise used the Dandy Day 6×6 papers to paper piece the potted cactus from our new birthday set, Year Ten! For the background she used the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop to emboss the polka dots on the Cilantro card base!

The subtle Dandy Day dandelion pattern is perfect for Elena‘s cute little scene that combines Butterfly Kisses and Dandy Day! The Reverse Stitched Scalloped Circle Window frames the sweet focal point!

Nichol created the most adorable Easter gifts using the Dandy Day Mini Notebooks! She added the new Spring Critter Huggers bunny and chick to the the notebooks and embellished them with Shimmer cardstock eggs and carrots from Mini Easter Eggs and Stitched Garden Border! She finished with Tiny Tags decorated with Say What? Spring Critters and pretty Lemon cord!

How fun is this cute scrapbook layout! I love how Melissa used the both sides of the Dandy Day 12×12 papers to create this cool and colorful pattern!

Megan‘s gorgeous Double Slider Surprise card features both Dandy Day images and pretty Dandy Day 6×6 paper! I love how she extended the adorable meadow scene seamlessly as the slider opens!

Audrey used the Dandy Day 6×6 paper to provide soft pattern in the background on this gorgeous card! I love how she framed the small Dandy Day scene with a bold black Zig Zag Square Stackable! It coordinates beautifully with the black sentiment and dandelion fluff!

Tammy made an adorable set of cards with sweet Dandy Day scenes inside Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames! She was inspired by the pastel colors of the Dandy Day papers to create the beautiful ink blended backgrounds!

With all the pretty pastel colors of Spring, Dandy Day papers are perfect for making cute Scalloped Treat Boxes for Easter gifts! Latisha created an adorable little gift box by adding a cute Say What? Spring Critters chick and Pretty in Pink Sparkle cord!

Yainea shares another great idea for Spring gifting! She made the cutest bookmarks using the new Don’t Worry, Be Hoppy set and For You Deer along with their add-on sets to make sweet bookmarks! She added the tiny versions of the critters from Say What? Spring Critters and Say What? Christmas Critters! These bookmarks would be so adorable tucked into an Easter basket as a non-candy treat!

Kara decorated a Mini Notebook using a cute Dandy Day image and the A Little Note Line Border! This would be a sweet little gift, maybe make a couple because you deserve something this cute, too!

Grace created a super happy Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up by layering the pretty Dandy Day papers! It’s the perfect spot for all the cute critters from A Bug Deal!

I love how Elise used the dark and light shades of the Dandy Day paper to add a shadow to the Oliver’s Stitched ABCs greeting! Using the gray pattern in the background really makes the letters pop!

Lynnette layered the pretty Be Humble green Dandy Day paper with lovely green Shimmer cardstock to a add special touch to this sweet, clean and simple card!

Melissa combined yellow and pink Dandy Day papers on her layered scrapbook page! They are the perfect soft colors and pattern to enhance her adorable photos!

I will have a video to introduce Dandy Day paper collection for you soon. Thank you so much for your patience. I appreciate it!

    1. Love the inspirations.. beautiful projects 🤗🤗
      Lovely papers and love for pastels add on to it❤️❤️❤️

  1. Today make me smile a lot of things: first my family, second your post and third the shining sun.
    Stay safe and healthy.

  2. Unexpected time to play with my crafty supplies made me smile. I hope to make a bunch of cards to make others smile also

  3. It’s 5:40am so the first thing that made me smile today was my first sip of coffee! ahhhh! Terrific samples! Love every single one of them!

  4. The amazing creations by the DT. Thank you, Lawn Fawn, for brightening my days during these difficult times.

  5. This made me smile today(crying as well); due to COVID-19 Swedish hospitals have rapidly run out of all sorts of protection for the healthcare-workers. IKEA, south Gothenburg, found out they had 40-50,000 mounth guards they had laying since the svine influenza some ten years ago. Over the weekend their logictic manager packed up his car and delivered all of it to the main hospital in Gothenburg (for them to distribute to other hospitals as well). Thank God for this creative man!
    Now… if I’m not allowed to mentioned the name IKEA here; pls delete this post. But this really made me smile!

  6. So much sweetness, I love your papers! It’s the little things that make us smile nowadays, in these uncertain times – the sunshine outside the window, and the little flowers that I planted yesterday… for starters 🙂

  7. When I got to the ‘Scalloped Treat Box’ that was a grin. When I scrolled to the adorable bookmarks….that was a giant smile. How stinking cute are they? I have ‘Say What? Christmas’ and now I need ‘Say What? Spring’!

  8. I look outside and see how much snow has melted since yesterday morning, that makes me smile spring is finally on it’s way. Nice inspiration as always

    1. I’m just happy to have my kids home safe with me. This week may look different, but we are going to be ok.

  9. The sun is shining, flowers appear everywhere – and I watched a really funny video about a virus (although it wasn’t corona)

  10. I smiled today because my computer worked.
    It’s been having issues and I never know
    whether it will rev up or will just refuse to
    work. Love the bookmarks. I read a
    lot and I’m always wanting more
    bookmarks. thanks for having the
    sneak peek.

  11. I smiled today because we are finally working from home and not commuting to NYC. This blog post widened that smile. Thanks for all of the creative ideas and the opportunity to win awesome paper 😃

    I was a little bummed today to be honest. Has to make the decision to cancel our little family vaca to Saint Augustine because of this virus.

  17. Waking up to my puppy sleeping on my pillow with me, made me smile! As did these beautiful projects today, bravo! This dandy paper is amazing!

  22. The fact that Walmart was dead and I had a package to drop off at FedEx that is in walmart. I love the sweet paper and projects.

  23. My grands were out of school today because of the corona virus. They made me smile because they were so happy to spend the day with me. My pup, Rosie, was excited to see them, too.

  24. I feel like I’ve smiled a lot today but I think the first thing to make me smile was my husband this morning.

  25. My daughter had her ultrasound today. 🥰It made me smile because it is a healthy baby and everything looks great! They aren’t finding out the sex of the baby so that will be a big surprise.
    Loved all the examples! Great job DT! ❤️

  26. I love this stamp set and paper pack! The DT projects are amazing! Everyone is home from work/school today (except me). I only got to see my pups this morning, but they always make me smile.

  34. My team going with the flow under the current circumstances. Never have we had to pivot so much with little to no warning. My team coming together and working to supper each other made me smile this morning.

  35. Lovely inspiration! Watching my husband and friends of 30+ years play a match of soccer vs their kids, it was great to watch both generations get together and play, thanks for all you share! Have a dandy day 😉

  36. I crocheted my first amigurumi doll in bunny desguise, it is so cute it made me smile.. it reminded me of Lawn fawn’s easter party stamp set. i wonder if i can find a crochet pattern for a doll in flower desguise.

  37. Opening the door wall to let out my precious pup there was a woodpecker eating at the suet (first time this spring) and the sounds of children playing and laughing in the near distance… beautiful and not so common any more. Suddenly smile and became thankful for the food we have, the love of my hubby, and all my blessings.

  38. My husband told me he loved me today before he left for work. Just looking at him makes me smile!! And, I am on Spring Break and I got to make some cards today!! That also always makes me smile!

  43. Due to COVID-19, my kids are home from school for an indefinite time period. I got to homeschool my son, who is nine and in the third grade; and that made me smile quite a bit! And my daughter, who is 17, is making homemade bread so I am grinning from ear to ear! Fun papers and I enjoyed all the fun projects!

  44. I really love the Dandy day stamps set, it’s really adorable. And I agree with Elena, it’s a perfect match with the Butterfly kisses stamps set.

  45. This Lawn Fawn paper and the mini notebooks inspire me to reach out to the children in this area who cannot attend school due to the virus that is affecting others. The children will enjoy making special cards with me and they can give them to others. Thank you, Lawn Fawn!

  46. Our school is closed due to Corona virus precautions, so my colegue and I were preparing lessons our first graders can do at home. Filming each other today made me smile. We make the best of a very awkward situation.

  56. Love the pastel colors of the paper ♥

    I thought my day was not so good but now that I have to think about what made me smile there are actually a few things. My boyfriends good morning message, that there was already cut bell pepper in the fridge, that the sun shined and temperatures were mild, that the vegan cheese I wanted to try was actually so much better than expected and many of such small things. That makes the day seem a lot better!

  75. Seeing everyone’s adorable projects made me smile today. Springtime colors and critters make me so happy since they’re all so cheerful looking.

  76. Playing with my silly new kitty!! I lost my 17 year old Maine Coon, Tiger. I thought the world was ending, my heart felt like it was in my stomach all of the time. I cried for days. My husband finally said, “You need another kitty to love”. I couldn’t even fathom loving another like Tiger, he was my world. I started looking locally–nothing. I then looked online on Petfinder and instantly I saw this scared little kitten in NC. I had to have him. My husband and I drove to Clyde, NC, (we live in coastal Southeast Georgia) and adopted him. We brought him home, he stayed hidden for 3 weeks. Slowly he has blossomed into this beautiful, loving and playful kitten. The vet’s office told me he is a Siberian Forest breed. How he got to a shelter, we will never know. He is gorgeous and he makes me smile everyday. He plays and attacks everything, plus don’t leave your socks out–he will hide them!!!

  77. The initiative my kids are taking to make the best of this Corona virus situation…they are finding ways to keep busy while off of school. This made me smile. Sweet papers.
