Lawn Fawnatics Guest Designer: Summertime Fun!

I am over the moon to be the first guest designer on the Lawn Fawnatics challenge blog, hosted by Lawn Fawn!  The current challenge theme is “Summertime Fun”; and what says summer more than a bright warm sun and sandy beaches?!  This flamingo was perfect to set my scene, and the palm trees from Critters From the Past stamp set were perfect accents for my sandy beach.

LawnFawnatics Inaugural  Challenge: Happy Birthday

Everyone who knows me, knows my absolute favorite stamp company is, and has been for many many years: Lawn Fawn.  When I saw that Lawn Fawn had created a new challenge blog, called Lawn Fawnatics, I knew I had to play along! Their first challenge theme is: Birthday.  Since it coincided with their 7 year birthday it was a perfect match.

Here is my card I made – all supplies I used can be found at the end of post.

Valentine’s Day Bee Mine Candy Tag Pouches with Paper Smooches & Lawn Fawn

Paper Smooches Lawn Fawn Bee Mine Valentine's Day Candy Tag Pouch by Wendie Bee of Stamp Right UpWhen I saw the project that Jennifer McGuire did using these Paper Smooches dies I knew I had to make them too! With Valentine’s Day coming up, I was inspired to take her project and run with it – and that’s when I came up with making the tag in to a pouch! While Jennifer’s project was super cute with the Burt’s Bees, I had just recently done a project with chapstick, so I decided to put lollipops in the pouch; but you could put anything you wanted in there :).  Die cutting fun foam was much easier than I thought, and I only needed to run the foam through my big shot once and it cut through perfectly.  I also decided to use the heart outlines that I got when I die cut the red foam to fill on some of the space on the front of the tag.  I just used my paper snips and trimmed off the top part of the heart & adhered them down with the matte  medium.  Having the precision tip applicator bottle made it much easier to apply the adhesive where I wanted it and not get my project all goopy.  When I went to choose a sentiment, I knew the Bee Mine stamp set from Lawn Fawn was a perfect addition for the pouches.

Once I had created the front of the tag, I die cut another tag and adhered it to the back with a strip of Scor-tape.  I decided that tape would be best rather than liquid glue as I needed something strong since there wasn’t a lot of room to put glue so as not to interfere with the size of the pocket too much.  If you don’t have scor-tape at home then you could use liquid glue, like TomBow – just make sure you give the project ample time to completely dry.

 

Here is a picture of how I applied the tape to allow for enough room inside the pouch.  You could stamp a To / From stamp on the backside of the pocket, write a personalized note or just leave it blank.

Once I had everything assembled, I decided to add some Wink Of Stella to the hearts, because you know – a little glitter is always better 😛

Here are the finished projects – to see a full tutorial on how to create the front portion of the tag, you can check out Jennifer’s video here.  There is also a full supply list below if you would like to make these yourself at home ❤
