Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #1- Happy Birthday


Hey everyone, today I am sharing a very special post with you. I am so happy to announce that I am a design team member of the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog!  Please join us in celebrating Lawn Fawn's 7th Birthday by creating a birthday themed project for our first challenge


Birthday projects are always so much fun to do! I personally love to do them because it allows me to create fun birthday themed scenes. I created a fun pop-up box card for my birthday project. I used a variety of papers from the petite paper packs. The colors from the "Perfectly Plaid" and "Watercolor Wishes" coordinate perfectly together! Since cats love boxes so much, the cats from "Meow You Doin'" were perfect for my little scene. With their party hats on, these cats and their mouse friend are in full celebration mode!

Lawnscaping Challenge #132- Distress Maniacs


Happy Monday! I hope you are ready for the next Lawnscaping Challenge! The challenge is to create a project that has distressing or uses a distress product. I made a card for my dad who is also known as the "fishing legend." He is a fishing guide and loves to be outdoors. My dad is amazing and  I created this card as another reminder that he is "o-fish-ally awesome"! I started with my kraft cardstock card base. I inked the edges of the cardstock with a warm brown color. I layered my scene on top on the kraft paper. Pattern paper clouds create a backdrop behind the grass and critters. I used sand paper to distress the grass and layered it on top of the pattern paper. I stamped and die cut out all of my critters and accessories. I finished off my card with twine wrapped around the card and tied into a bow.

Dad + Me - stamps and dies
