Scalloped holiday treat box (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

It's the last day of this month's Lawn Fawn inspiration week, and today I'm featuring the Scalloped Treat Box Winter House Add-On. Whew, that's a mouthful!

I love simplicity in my Christmas decor, so I decorated this box in colors that would fit my holiday look.

I cut the treat box out of the lighter woodgrain pattern paper, and adorned it with mostly white elements and a few pops of red.

The red bows add the perfect little punch to the front of the house! I also added 2 layers of the roof die-cut, which I think adds a touch of softness.

I added a little white chimney and a puff of "love" smoke rising from it. Having the chimney there allowed me to bring some height to the box, which I think makes it look even cuter.

I hope you like it! The box came together very easily and quickly but makes a huge impact. I can't wait to make a few more and hide little treats and gift cards in there for the kids' teachers.

Christmas dreams (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn inspiration week is moving along! Today, we're taking a closer look at the cozy set, Christmas Dreams.

Christmas dreams (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I wanted to create a living room scene, and give some dimension to show that the fireplace is a little removed from the tree and the kitty, so I placed it within a cut-out to give that illusion of extra room space. I used a piece of subtle grey knit paper, from the Knit Picky paper collection to back the fireplace.

To ground all of the cute images, I used a strip of woodgrain paper for the "floor." I just love all of the elements included in this set! It was so much fun to color and put together.

A wreath for Christmas (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn inspiration week is in full swing, and today I'm showing off the Large Wreath dies.

A wreath for Christmas (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I made the wreath even larger than intented by using it without the included circle frame. I cut a ton of sprigs in white, and layered them to make a snowy wreath. I then cut little red berries and added glossy accents to make them look more 3D.

I layered the wreath onto a sheet of light blue paper that I embossed with the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop - I love a red and blue color combo!

A red paper bow and little hanging mittens finish things off.

Winter Village (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

hi there!

It's Lawn Fawn inspiration week, and today we're showing off the super sweet Winter Village set.

Winter Village (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)


I love this card! You know when you have an idea in your head and it works out perfectly and comes together so easily? Yeah, this one.

I cut a layer of Snowy Backdrop out of black cardstock and layed it onto the white card-base.

Then, I used the new Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Portrait to cut the rolling hills for the houses to sit on. I cut it out two times, and layered the full backdrop die-cut over one where I cut off the frame above the hills.

Then, I stamped and colored a whole slew of houses. I wanted the card to have more of a graphic feel, so I colored them all the same: red roofs, yellow windows, beige doors and just a touch of shading.

The trees were highlighted with the help of a snow marker, and I added some chunky glitter to the hillsides

Tiny Gift Box (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

It's Lawn Fawn inspiration week, and today we're taking a close look at the new Tiny Gift Box die.

Tiny Gift Box (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I love creating holiday gift packaging! These tiny boxes come together so easily, and I love that you can cut 3 boxes out of a single sheet of 8.5x11 inch cardstock. Here, I used the lighter brown woodgrain patterned paper (from the Knock On Wood Petite Paper pack) to cut all of the boxes.

I sponged all of the edges to give the box some depth.

Then, I created a 3D topper using the Christmas tree from the Winter Tiny Tags set. Here's what you'll need to make a tree of your own:

I cut 5 trees per topper, and scored each one in half. I then put adhesive on one side of each tree (the same side for all of them) and started sticking them together. Before adhering the last piece, I slid in a toothpick (I colored the part that will be showing with a copic marker) and closed up the tree.

To hide the star cut-out and add a pop of color to the tree-top, I added a yellow star (which is super glittery in real life!)

Tiny bits of ripped up cotton balls are a sweet touch, and make the trees look like even more snowy and Christmas-y.

Beary Happy Holidays (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Sorry my post is coming to you so late - I'm a bit of a snotty/woozy mess and totally forgot to put up my latest Lawn Fawn card.

It's September's inspiration week, and today we're showing off Beary Happy Holidays.

lawn fawn sneak peek week!

I showed this card off on my blog a few months ago, when Lawn Fawn was doing their sneak peek week (click HERE for the original blog post.)

One thing I didn't mention in my original post was that before stamping down I removed the ink from the bear's ice skates. I wanted him to just be wearing regular boots. Once I die-cut the bear, it was easy to snip off the extra space where the blades of the ice-skates would have been.

I hope you like it!

Waddlers (Lawn Fawn September inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to this month's Lawn Fawn inspiration week! We're kicking things off with a closer look at Here We Go A-Waddling:

Waddlers (Lawn Fawn September inspiration week)


Can you read the sentiment and not start humming? I can't! I stamped enough penguins to make a whole chorus of them. I love Christmas caroling!

I love how the sentiments wave. It gives so much movement to the card!

The top view gives you a closer look at the whole gang. I layered them all and popped up that front trio. The focal panel was adhered to a piece of Knit Picky patterned paper - I'm obsessed with this pattern and color! It looks like the perfect winter sweater.
