Dream Big inspiration

Tammy made a quartet of adorable bookmarks using the dragon and unicorn in Dream Big! This dreamy color palette is so beautiful!

The Dream Big unicorn looks right at home with her Unicorn Picnic friends! I love how Elena hooked the unicorn’s front legs on the cloud in this magical scene!

Kara put her amazing coloring skills to work creating this brilliant bookmark! The dragon looks so adorable with the dotted details. And I just love how Kara made the tassel with Mermaid’s Lagoon Sparkle cord!

Marine‘s Reveal Wheel card is so amazing! She created a sparkly backdrop for her magical scene with Sunray Background Stencil and Fairy Dust Stencil Paste. Then she gathered the cute Screen Time kids with the friendly dragon on the couch from Window Scene: Winter. I love how she used the Reveal Wheel Thought Bubble Add-On to display the encouraging sentiments from Dream Big!

All the Dots papers add lots of cuteness to Caly‘s charming bookmark set!

Latisha stamped her Dream Big unicorn and dragon directly on the bookmark die cuts, then colored them in sweet pastel shades. You can back it with another die cut to cover any marker color that shows up on the back. This skips a step so all you need to do is add some sparkly cord to the top!

Audrey‘s brilliant card show us the dragon flying away! Oh, my goodness, this is so adorable! It looks like he is flying over the Stitched Rainbow and clouds. I love the beautiful, stenciled cloud background and the details of gold add so much magic and sparkle!

Elise used the stripey pattern from All the Dots for her cute bookmarks. She colored the images in magical colors before adding lots of glittery with Sparkle Glaze!

Yainea shows us how perfect the Dream Big critters are as gift tag! They are so great to wish someone a magical day!

Grace‘s amazing card design includes a hidden surprise! Tucked behind the dragon on one and the unicorn on the other is a matching bookmark! That is so clever! Her beautiful design features rainbows, Outside In Stitched Cloud Stackables and Puffy Cloud Borders!

Croc My World inspiration

This cute little crocodile has a smile that is so sweet! Elena featured a bunch of crocs in this fun design! I love the addition of the party hats!

Audrey created a watercolor background for her cute crocodile! She added Puffy Cloud Frames and cattails to enhance the scene! And of course, googly eyes are the perfect accessory!

Megan used the cute croc to inspire her Peter Pan themed design! She combined elements from Ahoy MateyFairy Friends and Toucan Do It to create a card that is so special and fun! I love how she gave Captain Hook the mustache from Dad + Me, so very clever!

Tammy created a pair of Croc My World cards to send some love! She made these shaped cards with Lacy Heart Stackables and Scripty XOXO! They would be so perfect as Valentines!

Chari created a pretty scene for her pair of crocodiles using Bayou Backdrop! I love how she added colorful leaves and cattails. And you can’t go wrong adding glittery accents!

Kara used our smiling croc and the world from Out of This World to spell out a sweet message! That is just so clever and fun!

Lynnette‘s tropical beach scene is so much fun! She used the new Sunray Background Stencil with Life is Good along with the cute Croc My World critter!

Croc someone’s world by sending them a fun Shadow Box Card! Our smiling crocodile looks so cute in Marine‘s clever design! She filled the background with trees from Critters Down Under and Bayou Backdrop vines!

Melissa‘s cute croc is joined by friends from Toadally Awesome and Toucan Do It! She added Grassy Borders and trees made with Birch Trees and Puffy Cloud Borders to create a scene that is so whimsical!

Elise‘s sweet crocs looks so cute in her lovely scene! She used Bayou Backdrop and Swan Soirée cattails! I love how one of the crocodiles is in the pond, so adorable!

    1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was my favorite book. I would have loved to have won the golden ticket!!!

  1. I was a voracious reader as a child and adolescent so it’s hard to pick, but the Swedish books about Pettsson & Findus are probably my favourite. 🙂

  2. My fav childhood book is a collection of the best song for kids by J.J.Zmaj (Zmaj means dragon in english lol). It’s a fairly popular book in my country (it’s name is “Riznica pesama za decu”), and I still know most of them by heart even 20+ years later 🥰

  3. My favorite is The Whingdingdilly by Bill Peet. My kindergarten teacher read it to us and I still love it. It is about being yourself (and it has a bit of magic in it too). 🙂

  4. So cute!
    Here in the Netherlands we have a series of books that’s named ‘Pinkeltje’ it’s about a dwarf and his adventures

  5. My favorite books was “I am I” (hope I translated it correctly). It’s about an unusual animal who wants to find someone else like it – but it does not succeed. Because it is unique.

  6. My favorite book was called “Cheese, peas and chocolate pudding” it was about a boy who was a picky eater and those were the only things he would eat!

  7. Fav childhood book was either the paper bag princess when I was really young. Or the hobbit when I started to really enjoy reading novels.

  8. We had frequent trips to the library, and each of us would have huge stacks of books selected. I remember Bill Peet was a favorite picture book author/ illustrator. The “Childhood of Famous Americans” series is extremely popular with my children right now. They love “checking out” those old, orange, hardcover books from grandma’s “library” when we visit my parent’s house. She has quite the collection, and she loves to share the love of reading with her grandchildren.

    1. I didn’t know the series had a name, but my school library had those orange and cream hardcover bios! I read almost every one of them!

  9. One of my favorite childhood books was the Pokey Little Puppy. And then when I was old enough for chapter books I loved Night of the Twisters and Where the Red Fern Grows.

  10. I have made regular trips to the library for more than 55 years! It was such a treat to get my first library card! I had/have so many favorites, but today I’ll say my favorite is “Press Here” by Herve Tullet. No matter how many times I read it with my 4yo grandson, his giggles are contagious!

  11. My favorite kids book is “Sleeping Dragons all around”. I kept borrowing it over and over from the library… Then my puppy chewed the book so we had to buy it from the library. Lol

    This would have been a perfect book mark (thought it’s not really a book mark sized book lol)

  12. I loved Are You My Mother by PD Eastman and then ALL the Judy Blume books once I became an avid reader!

  13. I can’t remember reading anything earlier than pre-teen and it was Nancy Drew mysteries. And to this day, I am an avid mystery book reader.

  14. “Madeline” by Ludwig Bemelmans. Why? The little Parisian girls name to start with. And that she had to go to the hospital (for some reason I cant remember)´and I had to stay a couple of days in a hospital when I was around 5 years old when I had a bad tummy ache… I just had to google the authors name, that I did not remember by heart ha ha. Should really try to get that book today; must be one of my earliest book-memories!!

  15. My favorite childhood book, and really adult book as well is Little Women. As a really young child we had a set of childcraft books that gave me hours of fun.

  16. My favorite books were the Harry Potter books. Super cute projects.
    Have a wonderful day
    Migdalia Rodriguez

  17. I love the Ella Enchanted book. Throughout my teen years I always had at least 1 book in my backpack, locker or my purse so that I could read any chance I got.

  18. My favorite book as a child was Enid Blyton’s Magic Faraway Tree – children climbing a tree at the top of which were different lands they could climb into. Oh the adventures! These bookmarks are perfect and I love how the DT samples show them used not just as bookmarks too.

  19. When I was younger, Nancy Drew books were my favorite. Now that I’ve raised my own kids, Harry Potter ruled their reading (and became a favorite for me too). Looking back, my favorite books that I would read TO them were Dr. Seuss and Love You Forever. ❤️

  20. The Giving Tree was my favorite. I just LOVE these bookmarkers!! The examples are all so super cute!

  21. My favourite children’s book has to be Children of Mother Earth and the other two books in the trilogy by Thea Beckman. I read a lot as a child but those books solidified my love for fantasy novels.

  22. I was not a reader as a child (it just was not cultivated in me) but I love to read as an adult AND i read to my kids all the time!!! My favorite books to read to them was I’ll love you Forever, and No David! They love books!! Me too!

    Fabulous projects, everyone!!! Love them all!

  23. I had a book of Bible stories I read a lot. I also collected Disney comic books. Wish I still had them!

  24. I loved —- and still do —- anything Dr Suess
    I also really enjoyed Jungle Book
    Thanks for all the chances to win

  25. I loved the Paper Bag Princess when I was a kid – although I loved pretty much all Robert Munsch books, that one was my favourite!

  26. My favorite book was the 100 dresses. I don’t even remember who it is written by but I can still see the cover.

    1. First love this croc! So cute! When real young I loved Thumbalina not sure the spelling after all years. Then I loved Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys and Charlottes Web.

  27. the dragon and unicorn are so cute! my favorite childhood book was called I Can’t Said the Ant i must have read it a million times.

  28. My first loves would be Charlottes Web and Thumbelina. In my youth Nancy Drew and the Hardy boys!

  29. My favorite book to give to new parents for their children is Goodnight Moon. My favorite book from my childhood is Little Women. But there are so many others I also love. I love these new sets! Thanks for the inspiration

  30. Those googly eyes on Audrey’s card had me laughing out loud 😆. My favorite book as a child was Where the Sidewalk Ends, a collection of poems by Shel Silverstein.

  31. There are so many books I loved reading when growing up. One of my favorites was Charlotte’s Web. I fondly remember my teacher reading it to us after lunch each day.

  32. These tags are adorable! Love the dragon. I read tons of books when I was little, but I think my favorite was The Velveteen Rabbit. I have passed my copy of the book down to my daughter and now my granddaughters.

  33. It amazes me how LF can make anything adorable-even a crocodile!! I remember my Mom reading “Bread and Jam for Frances” to me and as I got a little older I always loved reading anything by Louisa May Alcott, especially “Eight Cousins” and “Little Women”.

  34. I love children’s books. I don’t have many memories of my own childhood so I can’t think of what I liked when I was a kid, but I love Where the Wild Things Are.

  35. I loved anything by Judy Blume or Beverly Cleary, but Charlotte’s Web is the one book that stands out that guy read… A lot.

  36. Fantastic inspiration! I love the dragon! My favourite book when I was really young was A Fish Out of Water. When I was older, it was I Want to Go Home by Gordon Korman.

  37. When I was younger, it was Dr. Seuss books. When I got a bit older, it was Judy Blume. Then Stephen King. My mother went to a French high school. She had a wonderful library full of French books. I used to love looking at them. But my favorites were her Agatha Christie books. I learned French in high school and college so I could read those books and speak French with her. To this day, I still love Agatha Christie and other good, suspenseful mysteries. I’m very fortunate that my parents, especially my Mother, taught us the importance of reading when we were very young. We always had books with us. (Even to this day.)

  38. The Berenstain Bears book The Big Honey Hunt was my favorite. I still love it. The dad makes all sorts of mistakes, and it is funny. If you can find the book, you should get it for your little boy. He will love it starting when he is about 3. The Croc is my favorite of this new group of stamps. He’s just adorable!!!

  39. The design teams samples are all so cute! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!My favorite books were a series by John Fitzgerald called the Great Brain.

  40. As a young child I always liked Where the Wild Things Are ( Maurice Sendak) and Harold and the Purple Crayon (Crockett Johnson). Our family loved books and visiting the library. It’s hard to pick favorites!

  41. My favorite childhood book was a Sesame Street book that my mom held onto for my own kids. They had very little interest in it. Ha! But that’s the beauty of books…everyone can have a different favorite. I work in a library so I just love books!

  42. I read everything I could get my little hands on, always enrolled in the Summer reading program at the local Library.
    Betsy and Tacy by Maud hart Lovelace, read the whole series and bought some of them to enjoy again as an adult. =)

  43. I loved to read as a child and still do. I absolutely loved my Nancy Drew books and still have them all! I was heartbroken when I found out Carolyn Keene was a fictional person.

  44. I don’t remember the name of a favorite book, but it was about a girl who flew an airplane. Scholastic books were my library and I owned many.

  45. My dad used to read us Hardy Boys mysteries when we would go on vacations, so I liked those as a child. But when ready to my son, Dr. Suess and Shel Silverstein were popular, but the best books were Hank the Cowdog series by John R. Erickson.

  46. Not sure it was my favorite childhood book, but it holds the best memory. My grandmother read Little Women with me. I will always remember that. I LOVED Little House on the Prairie as a youngster and Anne of Green Gables.

  47. I can’t pick just one favourite childhood book. I used to read anything and everything I could get my hands on!

  48. My favorite childhood book series was The Bobbsey Twins….yes I’m old, but those books encouraged my love of reading!

  50. My absolute favorite childhood books were the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. All of them. I borrowed them from the library at school and in my town constantly. lol

  51. As a little kid I loved to listen to Cinderella be read aloud, but as a bigger kid reading on my own my favorite was The Pagemaster.

  52. My favourite book as a child was “Little Women”. I read the entire series. Thank you for the chance to win. Good luck everyone.

  53. Love those bookmarks! I have ordered those already and can’t wait for them to arrive! I learned to read at 3 (teacher mom!) and it was such a part of my life. Favorites include: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I even wrote a fan letter to CS Lewis!; Little House books, A Wrinkle in Time, Make Way for Ducklings, Ferdinand, Stuart Little and Charlotte’s Web, Old Black Witch (had a blueberry pancake recipe in the original version), A Apple Pie (Kate Greenaway), and poems by TS Eliot. So many memories….

  54. My favorite childhood book is “Guess How Much I Love You” by Sam McBratney. I even made a Lawn Fawn card based on that book!

  55. Look what amazing projects!
    so many ! love these cute bookmarks!
    My favorite book is Little Prince -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

  56. I remember reading Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys.
    At 81, it’s hard sometimes to remember what I read yesterday
    Wonderful release. thanks for sharing

  57. As a child I remember going to the library but I don’t remember having a favorite book. Reading is still a favorite hobby of mine. I take my dog, Paddy to the library once a week for kids to read to him. Hoping to share the love of reading with other children. My son’s favorite book as a child was ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. My daughter’s was ‘There was an Old Women Who Swallowed a Fly’.

  58. How adorable would the dream big critters be in a spinner card! I can’t wait! I don’t remember being much of a reader as a kid, but while I was pregnant with my oldest (and on bed rest) I loved to read the Harry Potter series. Does that count?

  59. I have way too many favorite childhood books to pick just one! We have 3 bookshelves in our house filled with wonderful books, plus probably 12 banker’s boxes in the closet with books….. we may have more books than stamp sets!

  60. My favourite children’s books are The Hobbit and The Tale of Despereaux (by Kate DiCamillo) but I read these as an adult. I can’t think of a favourite book from my childhood. I used to like the Hardy Boys series.

  61. I loved the Anne of Green Gables series. Before that, I loved the books that Captain Kangaroo would read-long ago before Sesame Street 😁

  62. Only one??? The Little Princess or The Secret Garden. I received them as a set and they are forever linked in my mind.

  63. I loved when my dad would read Hop On Pop! I also loved a book my grandmother read called The Elephant Tree! I read it to my son now and he loves it!

  64. My favorite is the very hungry caterpillar 🐛 by Eric Carle. I just love the illustrations and colors!

  65. I love the dragon&unicorn hanging out w books! My library of children’s books is after than most bookstores, but my favorites are one that survived my early creative tendencies, and one that my mother gave away. The first book, BEDTIME PICTURE BOOK, is still in relatively good shape, with large pencil-drawn numbers on the first four pages (1-4), all written backwards. The second book was a Disney version of ALICE IN WONDERLAND, and I still remember it’s fanciful bread-and-butterflies!

  66. My 3 kids love books, so this new release is on my wish list now. Those bookmarks are just the cutest, and how fun to see a dragon included along with the unicorn! My favorite childhood book was called Miss Mopp’s Lucky Day. It was a fun story about a baker who walked through the woods to town, to deliver her cakes, and nearly got them stolen by all the forest animals. I just loved that book and I still have it now, to read to my own kids.

  67. I read The Red Room Riddle over and over one childhood summer. Probably explains why I love Stephen King books as an adult! I love these bookmarks so much!

  68. “Curious George”. Maybe cuz I’m always a curious person…? lol Lawn Fawn makes every stamps so cute, even a crocodile! <3

  69. I loved to read as a child (still do as a matter of fact) and ended up becoming a children’s librarian. While I have many
    favorite children’s books now, the picture book series I remember loving when I started to read was Flicka, Ricka and Dicka. I’m loving all of today’s projects from the design team.

  70. When I was a child I had a huge collection of Little Golden Books that I “read” over and over again! When I actually learned to read I would still read them over and over! When I got older I read everything that I could and really liked National Velvet, Anne of Green Gables , and A Spiderweb for Two.

  71. I loved Dr. Suess Books, Little Golden Books – Disney Bambi and Beatrix Potter Tale of Peter Rabbit as a child!
    I remember in the summer Library held a Dr. Suess contest & I won 1st place for reading the most books!
    I also read Hardy Boys Series, Nancey Drew Series & loved Horror books as a teenager!
    Thanks for designing a new stamp & die set adorable Unicorn & Dragons! 💗🦄💙🐲💜

  72. I still love reading and hard to pick just one book! I did love reading Wind in the WIllows and Alice in Wonderland! I love all the projects and products today! I would love to make those cute book marks for my daughter to give out – she is a librarian. Thank you!

  73. OK, well I spent a large portion of my time when my kids were in school helping out in the library (reading books to classes and reshelving – which was almost as therapeutic as creating!) So I’m going to cheat and say that my hands down favorite book to read aloud was “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Book” by Lauren Child (which I highly recommend to anyone with children – it’s a true delight to read to them probably from about age 3 onward.)

  74. I would love to have a craft session with my two granddaughters and make bookmarks. As an avid reader, stamps and dies with a reading theme are a favorite. Add in cute critters and you have a real winner. My favorite childhood books were the Little Women, and the Oz series.

  75. Goodnight Moon will always be one of my favorites. I have always loved to escape into a good book and still read at least one a week. The bookmarks make such great gifts. I love the addition of the unicorn and dragon.

  76. There’s so many good ones, my 2 favourites are The Balloon Tree and also Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Loved the art style of both and the stories!

  77. I loved mysteries! Dating myself, but Happy Hollisters, Bobbsey Twins, Trixie Belden were definitely favorites!

  78. There was a series called Betsy and Tacy which I reread over and over b/c I was in love with the characters.

  79. My favorite books growing up were the Little House on the Prairie series. I still re-read them every now and again!

  80. The dragon and unicorn are darling, so many options for using them on these cards. I read a ton of Nancy Drew books before the age of 10. My children’s fave was The Rainbow Fish.

  81. My favorite series of books were the Nancy Drew Mystery books. My mom bought the complete set for me.

  82. There were a series of books that featured Trixie Belden. They were mysteries, that involved her family and friends, very similar to Nancy Drew (which I also loved), but Trixie was a bit younger. I remember waiting for any new books to come out going to get it as soon as I could.

  83. My favorite book read to me by a librarian was Majorie Flack’s “The Story About Ping”. I adored reading “The Door in the Wall” by Marguerite de Angeli to myself when I was younger.

  84. I had a one book with lots of little bedtome stories in it and I loved it so much. The book is in Mongolian and name is Uulen bor.

  85. What a fun stamp and die set!! I can’t wait to make bookmarks and tags for the kiddos I support at school. Thanks again Lawn Fawn for such wonderful products!!

  86. Great projects!!
    My favourite childhood book was ‘from the mixed up files of mrs basil E frankweiller’ where two kids run away from home and go to live in the Met in New York!

  87. Love the tags and the cards! I really like they have them from the back as well. The Giving Tree was always my favorite book growing up!

  88. I love the examples of you croc my world. I’m trying to come up with an idea of making up a luggage/backpack tag that I can make to give to my volunteers who help with a community grocery distribution that my church runs. I think the little crocodile will be perfect for showing my appreciation for their hard work with our program. : )

  89. I have always been an avid reader. So picking a favorite book is like picking a favorite child. LOL – I loved reading series Anne of Green Gables – the Little House books etc.
