Lawn Fawn & Hero Arts Blog Hop!

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Hello, and welcome to a special day for Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts! To help celebrate Hero Arts' 45th anniversary and also in celebration of the stamp industry as a whole, Lawn Fawn has put together a special exclusive stamp set (with coordinating dies also available!) that is only available to purchase at Hero Arts!

You can find the Big Thanks stamp set and coordinating dies in the Hero Arts store, but you also have the chance to win them by participating in the hop! Details on how to enter are at the bottom of this post.

I have been really addicted to making box cards lately! Lawn Fawn's Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up die set makes it super easy to make these fun, dimensional cards. I also mixed in a few pieces (the grass and the trees) from some older Shadow Box card add-ons. I love that Lawn Fawn designs all of these sets to work together!

Now for the really fun part- how to enter to win some fantastic prizes by following along the blog hop!

There will be 3 prizes, drawn from comments left across the entire blog hop (meaning you can comment on all of the blogs if you want for multiple entries into the drawing!):
  • One winner will receive the stamp set and dies!
  • One winner will receive a $25 shopping spree at Lawn Fawn
  • One winner will receive a $25 shopping spree at Hero Arts
Hoppers have until Sunday, September 29 to leave their comments, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

To make it easy to find all of the blogs in the hop, here's a list of links to all the participants:

Happy Planner Pages // November 2018

Saturday, January 5, 2019

I won't even make excuses for posting my November Happy Planner pages in January! Suffice it to say, holiday season, busy time, lots of family, lots of work...and LOTS of using the heck out of this thing to keep me on track!

I'll start off with a weekly spread using the Miss Maker collection. I LOVE the bright colors in this one!!! While working on this week I had an idea- to use narrow boxes to keep up with Darren's ever-changing schedule at the hospital! I've done this every week since then, and it's been a lifesaver as far as scheduling goes.

This was also the week where I decided to try out making a Plan With Me video for my YouTube channel!

I've filmed bunches of my layouts since then, but ran out of time to edit and upload. I'm going to try to keep up with that more this year!

The next layout was from the week of Darren's birthday, so I went crazy with the balloons and party theme.

During November I also cut down on the number of planners I was using. Four was just too much, so I sized it down to two- my catch-all and to-do list planners- and let the fitness and journaling planners go. I found that I like to journal in the Day One app more than in my planner, anyway, and my Apple Watch and iPhone are actually the perfect spot for me to record my fitness information.

For the week of Thanksgiving I went all seasonal with the Squad Goals sticker book:

And, spoiler alert- in December I decided to try combining everything onto one layout- the Classic size Horizontal. I fell in love with it. Truly. So much so that I returned the other two layouts I had planned to try in 2019 and am using just the horizontal now!

The last week of November was super busy, so I kept it simple.

Most of the stickers on these pages are from the huge 100 sheet Mega Sticker Value Pack that was released at JoAnn on Black Friday. I have seen them still available in my local store recently as well as in the Happy Planner online store, so check out my flipthrough video below if you think this is something you might be interested in!

I have my December planner pages photographed and will be posting them soon. Until then, have an awesome day, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn December 2018 Inspiration Week // Tiny Gift Box Raccoon and Fox Add-On

Monday, December 10, 2018

So, how was that for a long blog post title? Ha!

Some of Lawn Fawn's products can have some long names, though, especially when they are of the add-on variety. I am totally on board with any length of name for these little cuties, though, because the Raccoon and Fox add-ons to the Tiny Gift Box die are simply adorable!

I said a couple of posts ago that I couldn't stay away from the glitter with this release, and I had such fun using Lawn Fawn's Sparkle Cardstock (these colors are from the Autumn pack) for the faces and tails on my boxes. 

The add-ons and boxes are super easy to put together, but do take a bit of time to actually do all of the die cutting. And I cannot recommend the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube enough when putting these together- it made sticking all of those little pieces down so easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with another projects from the Lawn Fawn Valentine's release!
