Operation Safe and Sound

Today we have a special post for one of our fawny friends, Christy. Her home was broken into and many of their things were either destroyed or taken. Many things were sentimental that can never be replaced. My heart just aches for Christy and her family. I can't image what they are going through.

Many of Christy's crafty friends have come together today to bring her some joy and help her out as much as we can. Please check out the Lawnscaping Challenge blog for more details on how you can help and links to the other girls on this hop.

We love you and your cards over here at Lawn Fawn, Christy, and we want you to know that we are sending you and your family lots of love. I hope this card makes you smile just a little.

Say hello to our intern, Britta!

Hello, everyone! Today is a super fun day because I get to introduce you to our intern, Britta Swiderski. Many of you may know her from her blog, but did you know she is a graphic design student at University of Minnesota? We are thrilled to be having Britta helping us out, especially around CHA time! She is helping us finish up everything and will be in our booth at the trade show, too!
Here is a little bit about Britta from Britta herself!
My name is Britta Swiderski and I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with the Lawn Fawn team! Here's a little more about me so we can get to know one another. As Kelly Marie stated, I'm a Graphic Design major at the University of Minnesota (graduating this fall!). I have a deep love for all things art and have been scrapbooking, cardmaking and crafting for as long as I can remember. I love to explore new techniques and teach others about them, so blogging and making video tutorials has been a natural fit for me. Upon graduation, I plan to work in the crafting industry as a graphic designer and/or instructor. I've been a Lawn Fawn lover since the very start of the company, and I'm absolutely thrilled to be working on behind-the-scenes projects with them. Thanks for having me, Lawn Fawn family!

We are lucky to have you, Britta! :)
Britta is going to be doing a little video series for us using a new release stamp set with a previous release stamp set. It is a cool way to combine your sets and get lots of new ideas!

So check out Britta's video below using Cruising Through Life, Sunny Skies and Bright Side, and welcome her to the Lawn Fawn team!

You can watch the video her or at our YouTube channel!



Thank you so much for watching!
Thanks for the amazing card and video, Britta!

happy summer + card drive

Hello, everyone! I wanted to let you know about a card drive that Laurel Beard has put together over at Lawnscaping. Her husband recently deployed and she is collecting cards to send to the men and women that service alongside her husband on their ship. Please click here to learn more!

Now we have a gorgeous card by design team member Lea!
Isn't it lovely? She combined Happy Summer with some gingham ribbon to create a perfect card for a Summer picnic! Thanks for this awesome card, Lea!

Flying By Flickr Fun!

I was looking through the Flickr group and ran across these awesome Flying By cards. I just love how many styles of cards can be made with one mini stamp set. Awesome!

I love the classic and clean style of this card and how she used the flying trail stamp by her sentiment!

Clean and simple at its best! I love the spotlight she did with the punched circle. Such a cool technique!

I just love her envelope and the idea of the paper airplane flying out of it. Brilliant!

Today is our showcase of "Quinn's 123s". This 4" x 3" set is the highly requested numbers addition to Quinn's ABCs. The design team has made the most amazing samples!  We also have a little video on the bottom showcasing some fun ways of using the set!

Remember to click on the person's name or card to see all of the details and leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love! :)
linda.123
linda.123.B
How cool is Linda's layout?! I am in love! She used Quinn's ABCs to label her clever windows. Adorable! Harold's ABCS spelled out her year. Head on over to her blog, she might just have a Silhouette file to download! :)

Quinns123s
Chari's card is too fun! It makes me want to go on a road trip! Quinn's 123s is great for a route 66 sign stamped out with Smitty's ABCs, too. The other custom sentiment is Harold's ABCs, and the Critters in the 'Burbs dog is wearing Winter Bunny's scarf! Her road is the cursive writing line from Schoolhouse Backdrops!

2468_teri
Teri's card is so cute! I love the 2 4 6 8. It would be great for any type of card! Her Sophie's Sentiments birthday is perfect, and I love her Lawn Trimmings bow added to her fun eclectic card!

Quinns123
Yainea's mini album is so sweet! I love her number patterned paper and cut out Quinn's 123s "14". Awesome! She used Say Cheese, Too for the month and sweet sentiment. I can't wait to make one of these!

1stBirthday
Julie's birthday card just makes me smile! The Admit One balloon is perfect for adding numbers to, and the Critters Ever After sentiment is perfect! I just love Julie's card layouts so much!

melissa stinson quinns 123s
Melissa S. layout is awesome! I love her paper pieced Quinn's ABCs plus Quinn's 123s title. These two look so good together! Some Bright Side paper and Chevron Backdrops, and this is one cool layout. Using the school's colors on a graduation page is a great idea!

Quinns123s-LeaLawson
Lea's card is lovey dovey and perfect! Her combination of Quinn's 123s, Smitty's ABCs and patterned paper is fantastic! The Quinn's look great paper pieced, too! This card just makes me smile!

LawnFawn-congrats-latisha
Latisha's graduation card is awesome! Talk about a go-to grad card! I love how she used the brackets from Quinn's 123s, and her stickles are fab! Sophie's Sentiments and the mortar board from Hats Off to You are perfect here!

Make sure you click on each of the design team's names or pictures to go to their blogs and see the details of how they made their cards. You will walk away inspired for sure!

Now, I have a little video for you showing this set in action and some fun things you can do with it. I hope you enjoy it! Watch it below or at our You Tube channel.
