Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello! Today I am part of the Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Teheerah Atchia.

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration!

Join in the fun every day at to see what special surprises await behind the door!


I created a little winter scene with Perfectly Plaid Chill for the background and white die cut birch trees.  I added a little bit of Glitter Snow to the trees for texture and a little red die cut bird.  The plaid panel is layered over a Blue Jay zig-zag rectangle panel which I mounted to a card base white woodgrain embossed cardstock with a few pearl watercolor splatters. The sentiment is white embossed and die cut using the Happy Happy Happy Add-on set and a fancy folded banner die cut from Narwhal cardstock.

Lawn Fawn December Inspiration Week: Woodland Critter Huggers

Hello! Today is the last day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration and Release Week, all the new products will available for purchase starting tomorrow! But we did save the best for last in my opinion.  I really love the new Woodland Critters Huggers die set and it's even better that there are parts to create lots of different critters from the same set!


You can cut these little guys from cardstock but I wanted to try something a little different so I cut my pieces out of felt and did some stitching!


I think he turned out really cute and I'm looking forward to making him some friends very soon.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Woodland Critter Hugger projects and see the new stitched gift card pocket die that works with these cute little critters!

Lawn Fawn December Inspiration Week: Lacy Borders, Lacy Hearts + Outside In Hearts

Hello! Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration and Release week! Today we are featuring some new dies, the Lacy Borders, Lacy Heart Stackables and Outside In Heart Stackables.


I made little 4 bar size card using the navy plaid from Perfectly Plaid Chil for the background.  I added a Lacy Heart cut from Guava cardstock behind the Outside In Heart die cut from Ballet Slippers.  I also used the Stitched Woodgrain backdrop on the light pink heart to create the design and texture.  The Love Ya Line border is cut from Mermaid cardstock with the small Lacy Border in Peacock cardstock layered below.


I used the cute little skunk from Stinkin Cute fussy cut then popped up on top of a die cut piece.  I did this because my die shifted when cutting, so rather than starting over, I thought I would try something a little different.  I actually like the unique look it created, like a white shadow behind him.  I finished off with a little glitter around the heart.

Check out the Lawn Fawn blog today for more projects with these fun new products!

Lawn Fawn December Inspiration Week: RAWR

RAWR! Or whatever "Hello" is in dinosaur. :)  Today for Lawn Fawn Inspiration week we are featuring RAWR, the fun mini set with a cute dinosaur.


I layered the new Lacy Heart Stackable and new Outside-In Heart Stackable to create a frame and used the Palm Tree dies to help set the scene for this cute little guy.


I cut my card base thinner than usual so that the heart would hang past the sides for a different look. I also threaded some silver lawn trimmings twine through the lacy heart and tied it in a bow at the bottom.

Visit the Lawn Fawn Blog for more projects with RAWR as well as the You're Sweet and Love Ya Line border dies.
