If you haven't seen it yet, check out our fun video and comment on our video post for a chance to win!

We have been so busy building our CHA booth today! Oh my goodness are we exhausted! (So please excuse any weird or confusing things I might be typing! Ha!) And tomorrow we start it all again! :) So for now, we thought it would be perfect to show you some new stamp sets! And, don't worry, we are going to be doing our fun inspiration weeks, just like always, when we are closer to the end of February and the release of the new products! :)

 Handmade with Love is a sweet 2x3 mini set that is perfect for the back of your cards and for sweet tags on your homemade goodies, from cookies to knitted scarves!

 Flutter By is a 4x6 set that is perfect for Spring! These butterflies and flowers are fun to color and to stamp on their own. We can't wait to see the beautiful cards you all create with this set!

Gnome Sweet Gnome is an uber cute 4x6 set that is perfect for clean and simple note cards to fun complicated scenes! Cards made with this set are sure to bring smiles! :)


And, of course, we need a giveaway! Leave us a comment by February 1st telling us if you have any lawn ornaments (we have a gnome and a fawn! :) ) and we will randomly pick one lucky winner for these three sets!

Introducing ... (and a giveaway)





The video above was entirely made with Lawn Fawn paper and stickers! That's right! Lawn Fawn paper!!!!! From the very beginning we had this happy little dream for Lawn Fawn and adding this paper line fulfills a huge part of that dream! We could not be more thrilled to be able to offer 10 new stamp sets, 8 12x12 papers (two of which are a beautiful kraft), a 6x6 paper pad, a 12x12 alphabet sticker sheet, a 12x12 collection kit and two different "Lawn Trimmings" hemp cord packs! We hope that you guys are excited as we are! We have been working on this for so long, and we are so glad to finally be able to spill the beans!

Here is another little look at the collection:

We will be showing you the full sheets and, of course, our 10 new stamp sets during this coming week! We are going to try to tweet and facebook as much as possible from CHA. We already start moving in tomorrow! Make sure to follow our twitter account and our facebook page so you can see fun pics and videos!
All of these new products will ship at the end of February! Make sure to tell your favorite store about us! We will be at booth #2763, and we would love to meet them!

Here is the layout from the video that I made with one of my grandfather's favorite photos of us.

It is a quick and easy layout. I did add some stitching (with only minor injuries) which I think adds a little something! My grandmother was always sewing, so it is a little nod to her. :)

Now, we can't introduce something like this without a giveaway! We will give one lucky winner the whole collection: a 12x12 collection kit that includes the paper and stickers, a 6x6 paper pad and 2 packs of twine! Just leave us a comment by February 1st telling us what makes you "jump for joy" and we will randomly pick one winner!
Patterned Paper: Lawn Fawn (upbeat, silver lining, bright-eyed, happy thoughts, smell the roses, glass half full)
Etc: sewing machine, brad, EK Success border punch, Silhouette pinwheel shape

A wonderful card drive + another sneaky hint



There is a fantastic card drive going on right now that my sweet friend, Winter, is organizing! She is collecting Valentine's Day cards for children in hospitals to bring them a little cheer. Please go and check out this drive for more information and send some lovely cards! Thank you Winter for putting together this amazing drive.

This card from the Flickr group would be a great one! It is so happy and cute!

More sneaky hints!

Hello, everyone! I just want to thank you all for your kind words, good thoughts, prayers and hugs. They mean so very much to me and have been so comforting during this tough time.

I have been trying to get back into the swing of things today. My grandfather loved my "negocio de tarjetas" (card business) as he called it and was so proud of it, so I think a few sneaks are in order, especially of a set I know he would have loved.

The image on the left is from a new mini set that is just so pretty and the three other images are from a 4x6 set that is uber cute!
We can't wait to show you more, but for now we have some fantastic cards from the design team!
Lynnette's card is just so cute! I adore how she made the cursive writing line from Schoolhouse Backdrops a road! Cruising Through Life, Bon Voyage and Admit One also went into this sweet card!

Teri's card is Valentine perfection! I just love how she used Love 'n Breakfast and Teeny Tiny Backdrops. How cool is this layout, too?!
Thank you so much for visiting!

update

I normally wouldn't post something like this on this blog, but I know so many of you have been worried and have sent good thoughts, prayers, love and hugs my family's way. On January 14th, 12 years, almost to the hour, after my grandmother passed, we lost my grandfather Juan Francisco Diaz Montero, who I lovingly called Bilo. This loss has been unimaginably hard. We were so close. We spoke every day on the phone for over 20 years. We both meant so much to each other, and even though I am glad he is now at peace, I miss him so very much.
Things will be a little slow around here as we try to get used to a new normal. We actually aren't even home yet. We are a family company and you are our family, too. We appreciate your patience as we try to get back into the swing of things, especially right before CHA.
I want to thank you all for your love and support during this tough time. I also want to thank Tiff for writing the previous post, and I want to thank our design team for their love and support, too.
Sending much love,
Kelly Marie

Please bear with us!

Hello Friends, Fans and Fellow Fawnies,

We want to let you all know that things may be running a wee bit slower over here at Lawn Fawn due to a family emergency. So, please expect some delay in email and correspondence. Thank you for all your on-going support and love!

CHA Prep and a sneaky hint!

Hello, everyone! So today I was supposed to have my mini book done. I didn't get it done :(. I really thought I would be able to get it done, but there is too much CHA stuff going on. That's okay, though! That just means more crafty fun later on, right? :)

Since no crafting got done I thought today would be a perfect day to start some sneaks for our big CHA release! I know! Finally! These are really mini sneaks because we happen to love surprises here at Lawn Fawn, and we want to surprise everyone at CHA! Every weekday until CHA we will show little sneaky hints of one set each day. We hope you guys love them!
Any guesses? :)

We also wish you all could be at CHA with us, but since that isn't possible, we thought we would create the next best thing! We are going to be sharing photos and videos during CHA from our Twitter and Facebook, and until then we will show some photos of our fun preparations!

1. I think the booths needs a yellow umbrella. Yup, it does! 2. Working on the catalog. 3. Some new booth decor. 4. CHA prep is exhausting for Putter. 5. We had to go and get our critters some new friends for the booth! 6. Our hand stitched backdrop! 7. Best.Socks.Ever. 8. Product photography time. 9. Could that be a new alpha we were testing? 10. Every outdoor table needs a gingham table cloth! 11. If you go to Lowe's and Home Depot enough you eventually get very silly. 12 &13. Pizza and donuts are necessary. 14. Ivy for the booth! 15. I couldn't resist another photo of Putter!

Lawn Clippings Wednesday with Chari!

Hello and welcome to another Lawn Clippings Wednesday! Today we have a treat: a video from design team member, Chari!

Chari makes these adorable cards that I call "Critters in Love" cards. She does a mirror stamping technique that is too cool.
Isn't this card so sweet?! She used Jessie's ABCs, Critters in the Snow, and her fabulous technique shown in the video below!

Watch it here or at Chari's YouTube channel to see some mirror stamping fun!



Thank you so much for watching, and thank you to Chari for the video!

Here is another cutey card using the same technique!
Love this! She used Bon Voyage, Teeny Tiny Backdrops, Happily Ever After, Harold's ABCs, Say Cheese, Love 'n Breakfast and Critters on the Farm!

We hope you guys enjoyed this fun video!

Hawaii mini book

I heart Amy Tangerine! Not only is she just the sweetest, she also designs amazing paper and these fantastic mini books! I am having such a blast with this book!
DSC_0460
I used some of Amy's fabric paper and Thickers to create the cover. Then I stamped out "twenty eleven" in Smitty's ABCs on to a Bannerific banner. Both of these sets are just so much fun for scrapbooking and mini books. I think journaling looks adorable in the banners, too!

DSC_0448
I added some stitching to my card stock and frayed the edges of the fabric paper with my finger nail. I added some Distress Ink to my banner to go along with all of the stitching and fraying. This is just the beginning of my attempt to scrapbook my Hawaii trip from August/September. My goal is to finish by Thursday! Wish me luck!
Card stock: American Crafts Amy Tangerine, Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper: American Crafts Amy Tangerine
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Bannerific, Smitty's ABCs)
Ink: Jenni Bowlin, Distress Ink, Colorbox
Etc: American Crafts Amy Tangerine fabric paper, Thickers, mini book; Sewing machine, foam ink blending tool
