Design Team Inspiration

The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have two videos at the end showcasing some fun ways of using these new sets! Remember to click on the person’s name to leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!

Grace‘s card is so creative and beautiful! She used the Giant Outlined Love Ya as a hot air balloon, with Build-A-Basket Easter as the gondola! She included the extra garlands from Heart Garland Backdrop as the balloon lines. Then she added the So Dam Much beavers before layering it on a cloudy stenciled scalloped slimline card base.

Latisha created an amazing card that is so cool! She painted a watercolor rainbow before die cutting the Giant Outline Love Ya. Then she popped it up on a black background for lots of bold drama and fun! I love how she added the watercolor rainbow strip at the bottom, it ties it all together so well.

Rebecca created two simply adorable cards using pretty patterned papers! For the first one she kept it simple, layering the greeting on Knit Picky Winter paper. For the second card, she layered Giant Outlined Love Ya on a Lacy Heart before adding it to a Watercolor Wishes Rainbow panel!

Kara‘s lemonade stand is so charming and such a fun way to highlight the cute lemons of You’re the Zest! She created the pink and white awning using the roof from Scalloped Treat Box Spring House Add-On!

Elise made a pair of vintage-looking Valentines, they are so sweet! She combined Rose Gold Metallic cardstock with sparkly Pixie Dust cardstock on the Giant Outlined Love Ya. Then she layered a Lacy Heart behind each one. I love these so much!

Audrey‘s classic Valentine is so gorgeous featuring Giant Outlined Love Ya! I love the addition of the black splatters on the white Stitched Ripple Backdrop!

Marine used the new mini set You’re the Zest to create a Reveal Wheel card that is so clever! She used the Reveal Wheel Semi-circle Add-On and Make Lemonade to make an interactive element!

She also used Finley’s ABCs for the greeting and the new Falling Hearts Stencils to add fun to the background!

Wow, Megan used Giant Outlined Love Ya so creatively in this super fun card! She started with the hot-foiled woodgrain background. Then she created a shaker element behind the greeting. Finally, she arranged all the cute elements and critters from Let’s Go Nuts and Special Delivery! So adorable!

Kara added the Really High Five mouse to the heart-shaped balloons and he looks so cute! She used the new Falling Hearts Stencils to add the lovely pattern in the background!

Megan‘s clever card combines You’re the Zest with Make Lemonade! She layered the strawberry lemonade scene on a panel of vellum. It diffuses the bright yellow Gotta Have Gingham layer, leaving just a sunny border around the outside. She white embossed the sentiment on a folded banner from Heart Garland Backdrop: Portrait!

Melissa combined Giant Outlined Love Ya with Heart Garland Backdrop: Portrait. She got really creative and used just the outlined portion of the greeting. It’s so fun how it lets the stenciled clouds peek through!

The new Giant Outlined Love Ya is so perfect for pairing with the So Dam Much beavers! I love how Tammy used pretty shades of red and pink on this lovely Valentine!

Yainea‘s sweet design is so cheerful! She layered two tags in happy colors before adding the adorable lemon on top!

Elena‘s Valentine card is so striking! The bold red and white diagonal stripes are so amazing as the background for the cute beavers and the shiny gold greeting!

Mindy‘s Giant Outlined Love Ya pops against the rich brown and gold of the hot foiled background! And of course, the addition of the cute Wood You Be Mine beavers only makes this card that much more special!

Caly created a lemony card that is so gorgeous! She included leaves and flowers from Zesty Lemon for even more beautiful zest!

  31. It’s spirit week for my daughter and it absolutely made me smile to see her dressed up for the super fun theme today!

  32. This made me smile today; I THINK I finally get my taste and smell back after getting a cold. who knows, might have been covid but no general testing in Sweden nowadays. And I just stayed home anyway…
    So when dipping my nose into my cinnamon-jar I thought I got a hint of the scent before it disappeared again. But as it has been non-existing for 5-6 days it’s a big step forward 😀
    Love the Zest!!!

  33. Great big Love Ya sentiment and love the lemons. Today having my golden doodle snuggle and sleep next to me while I recover from surgery made me smile.

  34. Every day I like to look for “the gift of the day” – whether it be something in nature or an interaction with someone or any number of things that stand out during the day. (My hubby is actually my “gift of the day” every day!) So far today, my “gift of the day” and the thing that made me smile was watching the tiny chickadees and the flickers eating at the suet feeders! So cute!

  35. Thinking of the fun time I had this past weekend. My sisters came up for the weekend. Our city had their hometown Christmas celebration with a parade and live Manekin’s in the store windows. then on Saturday we had a Christmas party with the rest of my brothers. We had a great weekend

  36. Video chatted with my daughter and 2 granddaughters….that really made me smile! I need to get the Love Ya heart to send them cards.

  37. What made me smile today is looking at the Lawn Fawn release! I keep going and looking at the beavers stamp set! Also, my granddaughters snapchat sent to me this morning, just makes my day!!!

    1. My adoption application was approved for the two cats I will be adding to my household. I lost my 15 year old dog in June and my 17 year old cat in October and I’m ready to fill the void they left.
      Your cards also made me smile.

  38. We are spending time with our son and his wife in their new home. Sharing coffee with them this morning made me smile!

  40. Such adorable inspiration! My team made me smile today at the work they have taken on over the next week. Such a great team to work with!

  41. My adoption application for the two cats I’m adding to my household was accepted so that made me smile along with the Love Ya heart.

  42. I was in the car with one of residents I work with, and I told her to go left. So she did but then we drove somewere where we were not suppose to drive. We really had a good giggle about it, because I told her to do something that was “not allowed”.

  43. Coming home from work and seeing my husband, who caught a very bad cold and was literally sleeping all day yesterday, feeling all bad and unhappy, was doing much better made me smile. And later I was sewing and stitching lots of mushrooms as good luck gifts for the new year for family and friends – finishing up the very last one today made me smile also because I pricked my fingers so often that I wasn’t sure if I manage to finish them all.

  44. Having an extra fun Christmas lunch with special girlfriends made me smile and laugh! Love these new additions to our LF stash!

  45. Seeing this new inspiration made me smile & I also received a text from my mom letting me know she found her glasses that were missing, so that made me smile too.

  46. I took my dog out for a lovely walk this morning and seeing her have so much fun running and playing always brings a smile to my face!

  47. I smiled when I saw the heart as the balloon
    on the hot air balloon ride. The sentiment
    is one we say to each other all the time.
    Love it. thanks for sharing

  48. My conversation with the cashier at the grocery store this morning made me smile. We had a great chuckle about frozen turkeys. I love the lemon zest!! It is so refreshing, bright and happy to look at.

  49. In Kauai at the moment and am watching little chicks with their mommas run around and make cute “cheeping” noises 😍

  50. I brought my husband lunch today (just a Freebird’s burrito – had a coupon 😉). I almost never go in his office, so it was nice to see the collection of family photos and kids’ keepsakes on his bookshelf and desk. One of the sweetest things was a little heart that our daughter drew on his whiteboard – years ago! 🥰

  51. Gave coworkers their holiday gifts today. Got lots of positive feedback on my hand made cards with Lawn Fawn products.

  52. It’s my birthday!! So many reasons to smile but the first of the day was getting breakfast in bed! I love love love the love ya heart! It’s definitely my favorite so far!

  53. My dog was chasing falling leaves this morning, it was exceptionally cute, and brought a big smile to my Monday!

  54. I had my friends over for dinner, and my son and my friends daughter happened to be matching onesies but one was red and one green. We had am impromptu photoshoot in front of my tree and they were so cute it made me smile

  55. I finally got to sit down and look at all the blog posts for the new release and that makes me smile. I love all the card inspiration!

  56. I found my dog perched on the cat tree when I came into the living room. She was on the second tier and it was pretty funny so that put a smile on my face. But I promptly picked her up and brought her back down to safety, lol.

  57. A patient at work today made me smile! I called to schedule his appoingment and he remembered me and said that he always loves speaking with me! Totally made my day!

  58. My doggo had a post op appointment and she is healing as expected, but we can remove that cone… now that really made tha hubby and Ms smile. Also the zest pun… hubby likes lemons so all use that … he is the zest!

  59. I love the rainbow hearts! So great that these new dies coordinate with other heart dies. Can’t wait to make Valentine cards.

  60. I smiled when my daughter sent us a video of our twin 4 yr old grandsons saying I love you mawmaw. I love you pawpaw. They used to live about 10 minutes from us and we saw them all the time, they moved 12 hours away this summer.

  61. I work in a real estate office as a personal assistant to the Property Management team. We had 2 people sick today, including our receptionist, so I was asked to sit at the reception desk (something I avoid if at all possible). But it was lovely to sit out there again and just have some great chats with the Sales receptionist (who is the lady who got me hooked on cardmaking in the first place). It’s been a while since we connected even though we work in the same office. It felt awesome!

  62. Seeing an old friend made me smile, she stopped by the office to wish us all a Merry Christmas. It’s always nice to see people we care about that have moved away.

  63. Shopping for Christmas presents made me smile! I love listening to the music in the malls and seeing all the pretty decorations!

  64. Christmas parties day at homeschool co-op. I loved watching my youngest give her little gifts to friends and teachers, watch Charlie Brown Christmas, and also just time to catch up with a friend while I waited for her class to finish.

  65. When I woke up, it hadn’t started snowing yet! That makes me smile! 😉. We’re supposed to get rain/sleet/snow in MN and that’s always challenging for driving. Those are good days for staying inside and crafting!

  66. that “love ya” is so cool and unique. my boss made me laugh today. we are so inundated with work that she just said something and we went into fits of hysteria!

  67. I love the heart shaped sentiment that was turned into the hot air bool! So clever and oh so cute!!!
    My daughter and I have been battling a nasty cold the last few days. Having my daughter have a normal temperature reading put a smile (and relief) on my face.

  68. The sunshine made me smile today! It was cold, yes, but the sun sparkling off the water on the pond was so uplifting! (And I loved the Love Ya card with the little mouse coming through with the heart balloons!)

  69. I have been waiting to see this sneak. Those lemons are amazing! Something that made me smile today was my annual Christmas supper with my sisters and BILs. We always have such a fun time when we are together.

  70. My daughter was asked by her cousin to be the godmother of his son. What really put a smile on my face was seeing the smile on her face. It’s been a rough year with the sudden passing of her father so to see her smile today was wonderful

  71. So many things made me smile today. I usually start off the day with a smile. My kitties love to snuggle with me when I go to bed. I love when I wake up in the morning and they’re right next to me purring and “chirp”ing. This is my favorite way to start the day and always makes me smile.

  72. I smiled at the little boy I babysit, he is potty training and he tries to trick me int giving him a reward without going to the potty.

  73. I am so excited for tomorrow’s release. The hearts! Oh my. I need the stencil, the hearts frame, and the heart stamps in a line!

  74. What made me smile today was all of the inspirational ideas that were on the blog post today. I am not as creative as others and these ideas are so awesome!!

  75. You’re the Zest is so fun!!! What made me smile today was seeing the sun come up and then lighting up the trees as the sun rose. Absolutely beautiful!
