It’s the end of the school year! Yay! It’s the perfect time to thank the school bus driver who transported your kids safely to school and home again! Kara created an amazing Pivot Pop-Up card to show her appreciation! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.
Thanks for watching! I hope you enjoyed the video!
Hello and welcome to Lawn Fawn’s May 2021 Inspiration and Release week! On May 13th our 7 new stamp sets and coordinating dies, 9 new standalone die sets, and all of our exciting new products will be for sale at your favorite store and at www.lawnfawn.com! Woohoo! Until then we will have fun posts with design team projects, intro videos, and giveaways!
Today is our showcase of Virtual Friends Add-On and its coordinating dies! This adorable add-on to Virtual Friends brings extra cuteness and more accessories to the work-from-home critter office. It comes complete with a hard working (or hardly working) mouse, comfy office chair, a plant, a mug, a banner, and a cup filled with pens. It’s great as an add-on, or by itself!
We are also highlighting our new Plaid Stencils today! Create a cute plaid background with this set of two stencils. These work well with a variety of crafty techniques. Use the two stencils separately for a simple striped background or layer both together for the complete plaid look!
The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have a little video at the end showcasing some fun ways of using this new set! Remember to click on the person’s name to see all of the details and leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!
Audrey used a sentiment banner with a Father’s Day greeting to ground her little Virtual Friends Add-On vignette. She added another sentiment and thought bubble from Happy Hugs! For the background, Audrey created a fantastic diagonal design with our new Plaid Stencils!
Latisha omitted the desk chair while assembling the plant, pencil cup and little mouse on the Virtual Friends desk! The banners add lots of fun color and Woodgrain cardstock creates great texture for this clean and simple card!
Kara made the most adorable mini card using Mushroom House! She gave it lots of character, detail and fun pops of red! But wait till you see who is inside…
…it’s our charming little gnome! He looks so comfy sitting on the Virtual Friends Add-On office chair while enjoying a cup of coffee! Way too cute!
Rebecca’s cute card features Perfectly Plaid Remix paper as a backdrop to the office scene! She added the books from Den Sweet Den to the desk to show that this little mouse is busy studying! I will recreate this design in the Virtual Friends Add-On intro video below!
With lots of people working from home, the phrase “from my desk to yours” is more appropriate than ever! Elise paired this sentiment with “sending smiles” for an adorable card that certainly makes me smile! These sentiments are included in Virtual Friends Add-On. I just love the Screen Time girl holding a letter from Special Delivery!
For her Virtual Friends Add-On card, Elena used books and the framed “photo” from Den Sweet Den and the camera from Ocean Shell-fie to fill the office! She stenciled a pretty pastel plaid on the wall with our new Plaid Stencils set!
Marine created one of her epic scenes and it’s amazing! The little mice got together to play some video games with controllers and snacks from the Screen Time set! I love how she placed the console on the stack of books! This is the perfect birthday card for a video game fan!
Now, I have a video to introduce Virtual Friends Add-On! Chari and I will share 2 card designs to show some fun ways to use this new set with Virtual Friends and other sets. I hope you enjoy it! You can watch it below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.
