Design Team Inspiration

The design team has made the most amazing samples! Remember to click on the person’s name to leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!

 Kara‘s Hive Five card is so brilliant! She used the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag as an element in a bee-utiful collage! Her greeting is so clever, blending Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with an altered Happy Heart Day Line Border! And her Honeycomb stenciling on the letters and hexagon tag adds another layer sweet fun!

Tammy created an amazing trio of amazing bee-themed projects to inspire us!

Tammy inked the Honeycomb Stencil on a square panel. Then she cut out the window using Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables. She brought in the branch and leaves from A Bug Deal as a place to “hang” the beehive. And then she created the cute tag without a shaker, filling the hexagon shape with another beehive and busy bee from Hive Five!

The Den Sweet Den bears are so perfect as companions for the busy bees and honey of Hive Five! Tammy’s Platform Pop-Up card lets them savor the sweetness in 3D style!

Marine‘s slimline card is so sweet! Sweet as honey! She included A Bug Deal branches for the bears to pursue their love of honey! Just so clever!

Megan cooled down the warm honey colors with a beautifully stenciled honeycomb background that is so pretty in teal! I love the honey-dripped Henry’s ABCs and the Sparkle Glaze accenting bees’ wings!

Melissa created her adorable card in bold honeybee colors! I love how she used black to frame the hexagon shaped vignettes and as a layer in the design! It looks so striking and really focuses on the cute, Hive Five elements!

Elise‘s card is so colorful and sweet! I love how she stenciled the honeycomb to ground the sweet Hive Five assemblage. Then she created a punny birthday greeting using Finley’s ABCs.

Latisha‘s design is so sunny and cheerful! She used the hexagon frame from the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag die set to frame the beehive and queen! The Honeycomb Stencil creates sunny pattern in the background.

Melissa’s Platform Pop-Up scene is so whimsical, featuring just the sweet images of Hive Five! She used the pretty patterned paper of Stripes ‘n Sprinkles for the Platform Pop-Up.

Audrey‘s backdrop is so clever! I love how she included Paint Splatters along with the Honeycomb stenciled in golden honey colors!

Grace took advantage of the hexagon shapes in the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag set to make little scenes that are so sweet! She combined the stencils, shaker gift tag and of course, those smiling bees in a fun colorful slimline design!

The greeting is so punny with a mix of Henry’s ABCs and Scripty Happy!

Grace also created a standard size card using the same hexagon design from the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag set! This time she made them shakers to fill with Chunky Glitter!

And then finally, Grace made a sweet Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag to coordinate with her cards! It’s so sweet and perfect to say Happy Bee-Day!

Lynnette‘s birthday design is so sweet! I love how the Stitched Scalloped Border die mimics the lid of the honey jar. That is just so clever and fun!

It’s so good to be queen, especially on your birthday with this adorable card by Yainea! She added so much great texture by using White Stencil Paste with the Honeycomb Stencil. Then she brought in gold sparkle cardstock for even more royal bling!

Caly used honey-soaked color to stencil the honeycomb on the Stripes ‘n Sprinkles background. The she created a Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag and filled it with Chunky Glitter. The Hive Five bees, beehive and honey jar add so much cuteness!

Elena used the length of her scalloped slimline panel to spell out a punny message with Cole’s ABCs! She created a lovely backdrop for the bees and beehive with honeycomb shapes some she stenciled and others die cut using Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag! Love those smiling little bees so much! They are so adorable!

Nichol‘s card is so sweet, stenciled to perfection, and her no-line coloring is the bees’ knees!

Nichol also stenciled the honeycomb on the envelope and made a sweet shaker gift tag to complete her coordinating set!

Kara thought outside of the beehive to make this fun birthday design! She selected a color combination of Cilantro, Peacock, Blue Jay and Storm Cloud to cut out the hexagon shapes from Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag. Then she arranged them in an eye-catching pattern before adding the Scripty Happy birthday greeting! On the envelope she continued with solid hexagons and a Magic Messages birthday sentiment.

Chari‘s birthday card is so adorable and totally fit for “the queen bee” on her birthday!

The Hello Sunshine greeting from Magic Messages looks so awesome framed in the sunny stenciled honeycomb!

Mindy‘s cards are so simply bee-utiful! On one she stenciled with warm honey colors and then on another she created a fun rainbow with Honeycomb Stencil!

The pretty flower and smiling bee look so sweet with Mindy’s lovely rainbow of color! Be sure to check out THIS video to watch Mindy create this beautiful card.

    Love all the DT cards…. such inspiration!

  55. Seems like every time I begin to watch a video something comes up! Plan on finishing them though! Love this cute mini release!

  56. I never miss any Intro videos! I love it when new products arrive and to see what the design team has done! This time, I kept looking for the bee-keeper bear that appeared in one of the sneak peaks for this release but can’t seem to see him anywhere???

  57. I so appreciate that you post so many video tutorials to support your products – not only at the time of the release – but throughout the year. I learn best from watching the videos and it gives me the confidence to try new prodducts and techniques. Having all these videos as a resource and the fact that the design team members frequently blend old with new, also makes me feel that my purchases are a good investment.

    I have enjoyed all of the videos for this release and look forward to shopping for these new goodies.

  58. I’ve been “live” with LF all week for the videos & have been making a list! I even tuned in last night thinking there was a new video!

  77. Yes, I’ve watched all of the intro videos! Wouldn’t have wanted to miss a single one. And shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I did it every morning first thing at work.

  83. I have watched every video, waiting for the next with anticipation. These designs are definitely the bees knees!! Can’t wait to get some!!

  84. I haven’t been able to watch the videos this time (but usually do) and I am not sure I will be able to catch up before the release. Just seems to be a very busy time for me right now, but the examples are all beautiful!

  85. Love the bees! I already had the Hive Five set, so I’m excited to get the new items. I have definitely watched all the videos with all the great ideas.

  87. Love the new Hive Five, Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag and Honeycomb Stencil and all the gorgeous projects y’all have shared!

    No, I haven’t watched any of the videos yet…thanks for making them available, though!

  88. Super cute! Missed out when the kit was released … so glad it’s back. Trying to watch as many videos as I can.

  89. I think i watched all but the one with the pop-up bee. I need to go and get that one crossed off the to-do list.

  90. I have only been able to watch one but am looking forward to sitting down with a nice cup of tea and biscuits so I can concentrate on these fabby videos!

  91. I’ve watched parts of at least half of them. I often watch the beginning and the end. Then speed watch the card making. However, I like to go back and watch card making in more real time later for color choice etc when I’m either thinking about buying a given stamp set etc or using it. I like hearing those demoing the cards, it’s like time with friends. I also enjoy listening and looking for clues for what’s coming next.

  92. Yes! The videos are the best part of the release – well behind me actually going shopping and buying the release lol.

  93. I have not watched all of the videos.
    There is so much going on around this
    time of year that I am lucky to have
    time to visit the blog posts and comment.
    Thanks for sharing.

  94. I haven’t watched all the videos yet.. hope to catch up on them during the weekend :). Lovely new products and great inspiration!!

  95. I have not watched them all, but I am going to! I love this fun release.
    All the inspiration is just too amazing for words. I love it all!

  96. I have watched all the videos except today’s, which I’ll watch a little later. I love the videos you make to show us how to use your products and get inspiration.

  97. I think I have watched them all. I really liked that I was able to select reminders from YouTube so I didn’t forget. I often watch them on my phone as I am prepping dinner. I even had to rewatch the Hive Five video again (even though I watched it when the kit came out).

  98. Yes! It’s such a fun release and I’m glad you’re bringing hive five back!! So much good inspiration I can’t wait to craft later!

  99. Of course I’ve watched all the videos! But unfortunately for him, so has my husband since I cast them on the big family room tv. He’s a good sport, though, because he knows how much I enjoy them, and after years of Lawn Fawn release videos, knows who everyone is and opines on the cards and new items!!

  100. I haven’t watched all of the videos yet, but I’m working on it. Thanksgiving for all of the great ideas this week.

  101. I haven’t watched all of them yet but I will! It’s so fun to see all the new products in action.

  102. I’ll be honest. I have not watched all the videos. I like to look at the samples from the design team and start drooling, then when the release is available I order what I like and then I watch the videos. I have a huge collection of LF stamps and dies starting with your very first release. Over the years I have found that watching the videos when I have the product in hand is the most helpful for me.

  103. I love all this cute bee-nspiration! 😉 I have not watched all of the videos just yet – but I am going through them! 🙂 Thank you for all the hard work and gorgeous inspiration!

  104. I have watched and commented on each of the videos. The cards created for this release were all wonderful and so creative. I thank you for the opportunity to win such a great prize.

  105. I have watched all the new Mini May 2023 Release intro videos!!! I cannot wait to start mixing and matching the dies I already own with these new ones! I have become such a huge fan of lawn fawn over the last couple of years and my love for your products only continues to grow!

  106. OMG! I absolutely love this collection! This Is “must have” fór me!
    I watch every of your videos – I love your ideas, products And Design team.

  107. I am part way through, but it has been a busy week. They will all be watched though!! I love the intro videos!!

  108. Yes, I was able to watch them all. Now I want to go back and watch them again while I create some cards!

  109. Yes! I watched all the videos. My husband can tell what time it is by when he hears the lawn fawn song.

  110. Watched most of them and plan on watching the rest. Such a cute release! Glad items in the Hi Five Kit will be available.

  111. I have watched all of the videos (some twice lol) I can not wait to get my crafty hands on these cute bee’s and create bee-utiful cards

  112. These are awesome! They would make great thank you cards for my small card making business by LunaBee Creations.

  113. Yes, I enjoyed watching the new release videos! Thank you, Lawn Fawn! 💙😍💙
