This Thursday some Lawn Fawn Facebook friends and I will be creating this fun card that I envisioned as I was driving through lake arrowhead and big bear last weekend. It was perfect that it fit so well with the current lawn fawnatics challenge!

Valentine Flowers


Sorry we’ve been MIA for a while. One of us has been busy working on another project this week which was keeping us from our regular weekly schedule. We haven’t forgotten about you. We have lots of fun planned for here and on our YouTube channel. So stick with us!

PSA…Only a little over a week left until Valentine’s Day. I love flowers. I love how they smell, how they look, how they make me feel. What I don’t love though, is when they die. I think I’ve finally solved that with these! 

Using Lawn Fawn papers, inks, and stitched circle dies, along with my floral dies, I created these fun flowers that can hold messages on the backs for your friends and loved ones. 

To create the box, first I took my walnut lawn Fawn ink pad and rubbed it over the wood grain to make the embossing pop.Then I measured the green floral foam block I got at Michaels. I then scored my Lawn Fawn Wood Grain embossed card stock so I could fold it up around the long length of the foam (score at 3.75” from each 8” side). Then I scored along the 11” side only 1/4” in. I then made two 1/4” cuts along the score on each side so that I could fold in those little pieces to attach 3.75”x3.5” panels to the sides to complete my flower box. Covered the foam with moss, then carefully arranged my flowers with the taller ones in the back.

Fantabulous Flower Friday

 Hey there crafty friends! I was asked by a friend to make a bouquet of flowers that could be given to her boss. She is planning on having her coworkers sign the backs of them and it’ll be a cute little display. (She’ll attach the flat flowers after everyone writes their message to the back of the 3D flowers.) This is such a fun challenge for me as I’ve never made 3D paper flowers before. This is my first attempt:

Here’s what I used to create this blossom:
12 Big Petals from Sizzix Succulents Thinlits
4 Medium Petals Pieces
4 Small Petals Pieces
1 Stamen/Pistil from Sizzix Stephanie Bernard Framlits 3D Drop Ins
1 Skewer Colored with G29 Copic Marker
1 Section of Green Ribbon
1 Brad
2 Large Sizzix Flowers for the base
Lawn Fawn Plastic Flamingo Ink

This took some time to ink up each petal, but oh so worth it!

Fun for a Friday! What fun are you having? If you aren’t having fun, you must not be crafting! Go get your craft on!

Throwback Thursday With Thia


Hey there crafty friends, Thia here with this weeks throw back. I pulled this sketch out of my archives for ya! I’d love to see what you end up creating using this sketch. Come find us on Facebook and post a picture of your card in the comments section of our post with the sketch! 

I went ahead and created a card using my Lawn Fawn Stamps and Spiced Sunshine Stamps (I sure do miss those days creating stamps sets). Of course when I showed my son this card, he said it’s cute, but the pun has been used a lot (then he proceeded to show me a Disney short).
