The BIG reveal!

Hello everyone! This big day is here, and I could not be more thrilled to finally share my big surprise with you! First, my new logo!

Why a new logo? Well, I have started a new craft company named Lawn Fawn! We will be providing crafty people (you guys!) with clear photopolymer stamps! Eeeek! I am just so excited!

This has been in the works for a year and the time is finally here! I can't believe it! It all seems so unreal, and I cannot wait to tell you a little bit more about Lawn Fawn.

Lawn Fawn is made up of three people: Kelly Marie (me), Erica and Mike. Mike is our business specialist (and my hubby) and Erica and I dream up and design the stamps. Erica is a graphic designer so she creates the final images that you will start seeing on Thursday. Erica and I have been friends for 9 years and are the perfect match. We are very ying and yang. :) We have THE best time designing these stamps! This is truly a family company!

Next came finding the best stamp manufacturer out there. I got samples from everyone. We stamped the stamps in every ink you can think of, studied the differences between the photopolymers (my biochemistry degree finally came in handy!), we even did a "Pepsi challenge" and blind tested the different companies, and I am telling you we found the best photopolymer out there, AND it is made in USA. Not only that, they are also the nicest people around. I just love that!

We have developed a website and online store that you will just love that will be revealed on March 10th. We also have assembled the best design team on the planet! These girls are just wow! I feel so lucky to get to work with them. I cannot wait to reveal them to you tomorrow!

We are starting with four stamp sets for our first reveal. These stamp sets will be seen in upcoming issues of major crafting publications already. We are crazy excited about that too! :)
We will showcase each set coming up to the grand opening on March 10th at 12:01am EST. It is going to be a fun party here for the next week!

I highly recommend commenting on all of these reveal week posts. **hint hint** We love to give away stamps here at Lawn Fawn! ;) Start following us on twitter too for lots of info and giveaways!
(My personal twitter is changing to kelly__marie. I would love for you to follow me too!)

During the weekend I will highlight our twitter, Facebook, Flickr and YouTube pages. One of the big things we want to do here at Lawn Fawn is feature YOU! We cannot wait to see your projects! :)

Thank you so much for coming on this journey with us. We hope we can inspire you and make you smile this week. Just wait until you see the design team projects!

So tune in tomorrow for the design team reveal, then Thursday we begin the stamp set sneak peeks!

Until then, you can add our cutie pie badge (aka non-blinking blinkie, haha) to your sites!



To do so, just add this html to your sidebar! (For example in blogger, copy and paste this code into the HTML/Javascript gadget)


Thank you so much for visiting! It means the world to us!

Have an amazing day,
