A Glittery Happy New Year with Jessica

It’s time to say goodbye to 2023 and usher in a crafty new year! Jessica kicks off the New Year’s Eve fun with a glittery set of cards featuring Radiant Heart Backdrop and Magic Holiday Messages!

Jessica cut the Radiant Heart Backdrop from Spiffier Speckles Fairy patterned paper, then she backed it with Gold Sparkle cardstock. She also cut Henry’s 123s from the glittery gold cardstock.

She stamped the sentiment from Magic Holiday Messages on an Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackable. She added the balloon string in Black Licorice cardstock and then she used more gold glitter cardstock to tie up the balloon!

Thank you so much for this brilliant inspiration, Jessica!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day and a wonderful new year!

Elena’s Shaker Balloon Birthday Party

It’s time for another brilliant party idea with Elena! This time she created a birthday party with balloons and clever shakers!

This festive birthday party combines balloons, shaker elements and bright cheery colors!

Elena started with a Stitched Party Banner cut from Twinkling Cream paper from the Let It Shine Starry Skies collection. Then she cut a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Square Window from the banner, covering the opening with acetate. She used foam tape and another piece of paper to create the pocket for the shaker bits. And then she added a layered Giant Happy Birthday greeting over the acetate window.

To make the balloons for the banner, Elena used Stitched Balloon Frames and Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables with more acetate and foam tape.

The cupcake toppers are so creative! I love how she used Tiny Gift Box to look like the balloons are popping up out of the box!

For these smaller balloons, Elena used Party Balloons Lawn Cuts dies and Textured Canvas cardstock. To make the wavy white balloon, she cut one balloon with Ocean Wave Borders, then she glued the pieces to a solid balloon.

A little piece of acetate holds the Tiny Gift Box lid open and stabilizes the balloons!

The party favors feature more balloons on a Goodie Bag!

For the drink bottles, Elena added a Twinkling Cream band to the bottle before decorating with more shakers and star balloons.

This birthday party decor is so brilliant, Elena! I love how you included the shaker elements! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us!

Lawn Fawn Video {12.26.21} Samantha’s Inky Scent with Love Card

Today Samantha joins us again to share one of her creative cards! She shows us how to add fun inky details to a sweet Scent with Love design in this video tutorial! You can watch her video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

Samantha always brings something so cute to her creations! For this love themed card she filled the background with fantastic inky techniques. She ink blended bright yellow color before she stenciled Lots of Hearts on the Outside In Stitched Balloons. Those layers of splatters add so much texture and interest on the Simple Stripes: Diagonal background!

I love the whimsical colors she used for the skunks while keeping the black and white “skunk” colors in background!

Thanks for the sweet and whimsical inspiration today, Samantha! It’s so adorable!
