Lawnscaping Challenge #88



HI Friends

I’m a bit late posting my project for the newest Lawnscaping Challenge.  This challenge features incorporating texture into your project.

This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn. The winner will get the stamp set of their choice, yay!

I decided to do something a little different for this challenge. I had a mini album covered in burlap, so I decided to decorate the cover with additional burlap. Now, I just need to scrap some pages within the album!


As you can see, I didn’t stamp at all, but I used several Lawn Cuts for this project (Quinn’s ABCs, hearts, tags)

We hope you decide to play along with this super fun challenge.

Hugs and blessings

Lawn Fawn and Add a Little Dazzle

Add A Little Dazzle

Hi Friends

Lawn Fawn is joining up with Add a Little Dazzle for a fun blog hop.  The projects have been posted all week long, and today is my turn to join in on the hop. 

Here’s what I came up with:

I thought the shiny Dazzle metal sheets would make for a fun birthday card.  I also added some Lawn Fawn sequins to complete the look.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend.

W Plus 9

Hi Friends

How is your week? I hope you're enjoying it

If you've visited my blog at all, you know I love Lawn Fawn. Their cute and whimsical stamps are just what stamping is about, fun and happy.

I am also in love with WPlus9 stamps.  The style is so different, so they fill an different crafty need. These geometric triangles are so versatile,  I think these are particularly great for male cards.

One common denominator that is a huge factor in my shopping is that both of these companies offer amazing customer service. They go above and beyond in helping their customers. For me, that goes a long way in creating customer loyalty.  

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hugs and blessings

Set of Dreams

Hi Friends
It's no big secret that I've been neglecting my blog.  I'm trying to rectify that.

I had a job that was really stressful and required me to travel quite a bit. It was great experience, and I met a lot of fabulous people.  But the job just interfered so much with my personal life, and I needed to make a change.  I have been blessed to be able to find a new job that won't have much travel at all, and should be less stressful.  I've only been there a month but am optimistic about how the job will work with my life.

I hope to be more engaged in church and with my blog.  So I thought I'd try to re-ignite some of my blogging by posting some projects today.

I made a set of cards using the Lawn Fawn mini set, Dream

I have a friend whose birthday is this week, and she loves it when I give her homemade cards to have on hand to send when needed.  I thought this little set might be good to add to her birthday gifts!

Thanks for stopping by, hugs and blessings

Lawnscaping Challenge

Hi friends
It's time for a new Lawnscaping challenge. Most kids are either back in school or on their way, so this challenge is all about going back to school. It's sponsored by online retailer, Simon Says Stamp who will give the winner a $25 shopping certificate.
We don't have children (other than our precious 4 legged fur-babies), so I don't have a big need for school themed cards. Thus, I decided to go with something that could be used for multiple purposes.  Here's what I came up with:

Be sure to head to the Lawnscaping Blog to check out the design team projects. I sure hope you decide to play along!

Fun with Lawn Fawn

HI Friends

I hope you had a great weekend. I really enjoyed mine.  We had a low-key weekend which was just what was needed.

Today, I’m sharing some water-colored projects I made using Penelope’s blossoms.  I am getting so hooked on water-coloring these days. I’ll warn you now, you are likely to see more of these in the coming days.

I also used Summertime Charm and Our Friendship Grows.  These were so fun to do. I’m still getting the hang of it, but it’s fun to practice.  I used distress inks and distress markers and watercolor paper for the effect. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and blessings

Lawnscaping challenge #85

Hi Friends

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend (for those of us in the USA, a three day weekend!) I'm beginning a new chapter in my career today, and I'm really excited about it.

Today, we kick off the next Lawnscaping Challenge, a summer color challenge featuring turquoise, yellow, and orange.

We are fortunate to have Simon Says Stamp sponsoring this challenge. The winner will receive a $25 to shop in their online store.

I ended up making two cards for this challenge.  The Lawn Fawn Let's Polka collection works perfectly with this color challenge, and I couldn't limit myself. Here's what I came up with: 

I used the fun Chit Chat stamp set and the Let's Polka Sequins to finish off the projects.  Super easy and yet bright and cheery.

Be sure to go to the Lawnscaping blog and see the rest of the design team projects and for the details on how to enter the challenge.  We sure hope you decide to play along.  These colors are so perfect for summer that the possibilities are endless.

Hugs and blessings.
