New Lawn Fawn

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Words cannot describe how happy the new Lawn Fawn summer release makes me. I've been lucky enough to get my hands on the collection early and when I received my package in the mail I was so excited because I had no clue what the new collection looked like. As I was going through the sets and dies one by one, I was gasping at everything I was looking at--it was so funny now that I think about it. I'm like a huge stamp nerd. It's funny how Lawn Fawn stamps can truly make my day. Their stamps are so happy that it's impossible for their cute happiness not to rub off on my mood. When I'm having a bad day or I'd simply like to calm down from a hectic day I always love making a card with their stamps. It makes everything all better for me, hehe. 
I'm so excited for the next Lawn Fawn video I'll be making for next month. I hope you all love it! I also wanted to say that I've still been trying to make a card everyday for my 'card a day' series BUT I can't share a lot of them right now because I'm making them with the new collection and some of them haven't been shown yet. So I'm thinking of showing all my new cards once the summer collection is fully released. I can't wait! 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you like my card. How are you loving the collection so far? Isn't everything a MUST HAVE?! I love it all. Take care! 

Handmade Stationary Set, A perfect Mother's Day gift

Thursday, May 8, 2014

Today I have really quick & easy tutorial for you! I made a video for the Lawn Fawn blog on how to make handmade stationary using the LF stamp set, Penelope's Blossoms. Scroll down to watch the video! 

I hope you enjoyed this video! I wasn't able to post this past Monday, and Wednesday but I'm going to post tomorrow for 'One card a Week', so stay tuned. 

One Card A Day, New Series

Friday, May 2, 2014

In my last post I mentioned that I had a new goal of making at least one card a day; and, this week was the first time I actually give it a try. I made a card on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. With fulfilling orders it sometimes gets really hard to make a card each day because my business/buyers are my first priority. When I did have time to make a card it was more like I stayed up an hour later after work to make my card. Some nights I just couldn't stay up past midnight to make a card, though, hehe.
I recently purchased a few new stamp sets and dies—some from Mama Elephant and a few others from Avery Elle. I have a feeling that this new series ‘One card a Day’ is going to empty my wallet very fast, lol, because I’m going to need lots of new stamp sets. I mean I have a lot to begin with, but we card makers/crafters always need an excuse to buy more stamps—am I right?
For these cards, I use a lot of fun techniques like watercoloring, Copic coloring, and paper piecing. I also used Lawn Fawn paper, stamps and dies too. I actually had a lot of fun mixing and matching products from lots of different stamp manufactures. I usually make a card using only one stamp company but mixing them all together made the creating process so much fun!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this new series and I can’t wait to try it again next week. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to make one every day. I think I’m going to try and make a card tonight too, and if I do I’ll share them next Friday for ‘One card a day, #2.
