To Bee or Not to Bee Blog Hop!

Happy Monday Lawn Fawn friends! Today we are participating in a fun To Bee or Not to Bee blog hop to celebrate World Bee Day and to raise awareness of the importance of bees!

Elena has created the most delightful Happy Bee Day party decor! Be sure to make it all the way to the end of the post, there are giveaway prizes to be won and lots of wonderfully talented crafters to visit on this blog hop! For more information about bees, World Bee Day and the blog hop please visit Milka’s blog, click HERE.

For the banner, Elena kept it simple using Stitched Party Banners and some Black Licorice and Sticky Note cardstock! She used some Black Tie cord to string the banners together!

She patterned the cake topper on a letter board design! She used a scoring board to score the lines every half inch on a standard card size panel of Sticky Note cardstock. Then she framed it with a white Stitched Rectangle Frame and added Cole’s ABCs letters! I love how she attached some happy bees with acetate to look like they are buzzing around the cake! So adorable!

The party favors are Tiny Gift Boxes with some special bee details! Strips of black cardstock were added to the yellow boxes. The faces are from Tiny Gift Box Deer Add-On (Elena carefully trimmed off the deer ears),

For the sweet little wings, Elena started with the small butterfly from Layered Butterflies die cut from vellum. Then she trimmed them with scissors into the shape of wings. She also added little bee stingers using the whipped cream die from Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-on die set; such a clever idea!

Here are the components of the party favor boxes! They are listed in the supply list at the end of today’s post.

To decorate the drink bottles, Elena wrapped the bottles in black cardstock. She die cut a Stitched Circle and colored the edge with a yellow Copic marker and stamped the sentiment which is a mix of “happy” and “day” from Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday and “bee” from Bugs and Kisses! The happy little bee is also from Bugs and Kisses while the bee trail is from Toadally Awesome.

Thank you so much, Elena for creating this amazing party for World Bee Day!

Chinese New Year Ideas with Ivy!

We are so excited about our new Spring 2019 product release that we will be sharing at Creativation next week! We’ve been working hard to bring you lots of wonderful new stamps, dies, ink, and paper collections! Sneak Week is January 14 – 18 and we can’t wait to share everything we’ve been working on! Here we have a little sneaky peek for you!

Ivy joins us today to share traditional gifts of good luck for Chinese New Year! Her gorgeous red and glittery gold card and gift envelope are perfect for celebrating the Year of the Pig on February 5th!

Ivy started her amazing card by layering a Chili Pepper Polka Heart Backdrop over more Chili Pepper cardstock, this gives the background a classy look! Then she added a bold greeting by die cutting Cole’s ABCs from our gold glitter cardstock from the Holiday Sparkle pack. Our cute little pig from Critters on the Farm is stamped on Watercolor Wishes paper then die cut and framed in a gold glitter Stitched Scalloped Square Frame!

Ivy stamped the firecracker from our retired Happy 4th set multiple times and strung them on Black Tie cord for some super cute added detail and fun! Here’s a crafty tip from Ivy to get the letters lined up: “butt each row of letters up against the edge of a ruler or acrylic block. Then using a length of washi tape longer cover the whole line of letters. Flip over, apply glue on all them flip back over and position onto card. When securely adhered, carefully remove tape. It is such a time (and sanity saver)”

Ivy created a Small Stitched Envelope using more Chili Pepper and gold glitter cardstock! She die cut the envelope flap a second time in red to add detail and definition to the envelope!

Ivy’s beautiful card and envelope are a festive and fun addition to the store-bought red envelopes!

Thank you so much, Ivy for sharing your amazing creativity with us today!

We Wish You a Very Fawny Holiday Week 2018 {Day 2}

Hello everyone! Welcome to our special Fawny Holiday Week! This week is all about getting ideas for the upcoming Holidays! We have fun ideas, giveaways and videos! (Make sure to comment for a chance to win a stamp set and coordinating dies of your choice and a Knit Picky Fall 6×6 pad!)

We will be featuring Lawn Fawn Holiday products this week, both old and new! Woohoo! And, we also have team members (Fawnies) from Lawn Fawn Headquarters and our Lawn Fawnatics Design Team joining us for extra inspiration! I can’t wait to show you all of these gorgeous projects!

Let’s check out some awesome samples! Today Mindy shares a super fun video tutorial showing how she made an adorable Slide on Over card with Oh What Fun!  You can watch the video below, or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you for watching!

Mindy’s Slide on Over design is just perfect with our new Oh What Fun mini set! I love how she filled the cute scene with images from Say What? Christmas Critters, Ready Set Snow, Winter Skies and Home for the Holidays!

That ink-blended winter sky is amazing! She blending Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks on Bristol cardstock for a really smooth blend!

Karolina’s beautiful card uses die cuts to wish a Merry Christmas! I love how she used Tag You’re It as a background for her greeting that combines Scripty Merry and part of the Merry Christmas Border die! She die cut multiples of the Large Wreath branches from Noble Fir, Cilantro and Holiday Sparkle green glitter cardstock to tuck behind the tag and finish off this festive card!

Kay‘s amazing Christmas card scene starts with a frosty, leaf-less Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape and a Stitched Hillside Border! She filled in the happy scene with images from Winter Village, Winter Skies and Say What? Christmas Critters! She added more fun with “poinsettias” from Happy Harvest and gift packages from Toboggan Together and Cheery Christmas!

Franci got really creative and made a super fun tall card with three cute scenes featuring the Hay There farm critters! The trees are from Snow Day and the fun buffalo check letters are Cole’s ABCs!

The sweet little Santa hat can be found in our Baaah Humbug stamp set!

There is something just so whimsical about a bunch cute little critters! Melissa M filled a Peekaboo Backdrop with a blustery winter scene and filled the windows with critters from Say What? Christmas Critters, Wild for You and Snow Cool! Our Stitched Windy Backdrop adds the swirly look to the wintry sky!

Samantha C. used papers from last year’s Knit Picky 6 x 6 paper pad to create an adorable background for her 2 layer tag! The adorable woolly sheep from Baaah Humbug is holding a perfectly coordinating gift package! The sweet sentiment is from Tiny Tag Sayings!

Our Winter Sparrows are signing a greeting of season’s tweetings here on Lynette‘s charming card design! She used Happy Mail and Birch Tree dies on a Stitched Hillside Backdrop to set a snowy winter scene! The mailbox is filled with Toboggan Together gift packages made more festive with some Deck the Halls pine boughs! Lynette finished her card with sparkle using Prisma Glitter!

Samantha M is back today with another super cute CAS card design! This time her coloring shines on these sweet images from Christmas Dreams!

Jessica‘s shaker Say What? Gift Tags are glittered with gold Holiday Sparkle cardstock and gold-filled with tiny micro beads! I love how she colored the Say What? Christmas Critters in colors to match her amazing ink splattered background! These festive tags go perfectly with the Small Stitched Envelopes that have been sprinkled with a bit more shiny gold!

Debbie paired our adorable Oh What Fun stamp with a fun greeting from Winter Scripty Sentiments on a 4-Bar size Hippo Notecard! That’s an Stitched Scalloped Square framing the cute sleighing bear!

I hope you have enjoyed this fun look at some of our Holiday sets. Tomorrow we have another fun Fawny Holiday celebration! For now, though, it’s giveaway time! Leave us a comment sharing a favorite holiday cookie by November 17th at 10:00pm EST, and we will randomly pick one winner for a stamp set with coordinating dies of their choice and a Knit Picky Fall 6×6 Petite Paper pad! Post about our Fawny Holiday Week on social media and leave another comment for another chance to win!
