We are so happy to introduce to you our new Lawn Fawnatics Design Team member! Please help us welcome Caly Person to the team! We know you will love her creative style and be inspired by her projects for our challenges! Be sure to check out our Design Team page to learn more about our sweet new Fawnatics team member!

Caly used our Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On to create a super fun interactive design! She combined Thanks a Bushel with the cute bear from For You Deer with a bright blend of ink in the background! She used the banner from Double Slider Surprise to add the sweet sentiment!

How much fun is Christy‘s design! I love how she “removed” the ice skates from our Mice on Ice so they can take a stroll through an Autumn landscape created with Stitched Tree Borders and Fall Fling paper!

Nothing says Awesome Autumn like our Happy Harvest scarecrow, sunflowers and cute crows! Franci gave her design a lovely warm hued sky!

Jessica built a beautiful Autumn scene with Leafy Tree Backdrop along Thanks a Bushel, Pick of the Patch and Fairy Friends!

Joyce created a Tree Before ‘n Afters card with a wish for happiness all year featuring an Awesome Autumn scene! She used a cottage from Winter Village in each window of the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait to complete the little scenes!

Karin‘s fun Fall design starts with the Jump for Joy owl and leaves swirling in the breeze! Of course the Butterfly Kisses fox is running to catch them!

Even a fun-loving Yeti can enjoy the change of seasons by jumping in a pile of leaves! Samantha C used a Stitched Hillside Backdrop with Fall Fling papers to build her Awesome Autumn scene!

Samantha was inspired by Chari’s card to create her beautiful Autumn scene! She combined the Joy to the Woods trees with a canopy of Puffy Cloud Border. Those cute critters are from Upon a Star!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 60 on Thursday, September 19th!

A Beautiful Winter Scene with Ildi!

Today we have a gorgeous card by our Guest Designer to share with you! Ildi (@hellopilda) is so talented, she creates wonderful scenes for her cards! Her use of color is amazing too! This card is perfect inspiration for our Happy Little Critters challenge. This challenge will be open until Sunday January 20th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

This happy card design combines several sets in 3 super cute vignettes all combined in one scene! The bunnies from Happy Easter are hanging out with the snowman from Making Frosty Friends! Winter Bunny is sledding with the cute squirrel from Joy to the Woods and in the background there’s a charming village created using Simply Celebrate Winter and the trees from Sweet Christmas!

Ildi’s beautiful coloring adds so much dimension, fun and detail to all the images, especially the little critters!

Thank you so much, Ildi! We have enjoyed having you as our Guest Designer and sharing your amazing creativity!

Have an awesome week, Fawnatics friends!

We are so excited to welcome Grace Camou as our Guest Designer for this challenge! She is a very talented cardmaker and has been wowing us with her amazing creativity! You can find her on Instagram as @allbygrace! Be sure to check out her Instagram, you will be so inspired! Now let’s share her amazing card for this challenge!

What looks like just a regular card is actually a Storybook Shadow Box card to which Grace added a decorated cover flap! How cute is that gingerbread and candy vignette?!

Grace used the banner die that comes in the Double Slider Surprise die set to add the sweet sentiment to the “book cover” flap on the front of the box! This design is just so fun and unique!

When the card folds flat for mailing, the Sweet Christmas sentiment on the side of the box will be visible as the card is removed from the envelope! Too clever!

Grace used our Sweet Christmas stamp set to build an adorable layered scene on the inside! She created a lovely pink and teal color palette using papers from a few different collections! She also added the Sweetest Flavor ice cream cone to the inside panels in pretty pastel shades!

Now let’s see what our awesome Design Team created to inspire your creativity!

Samantha‘s fabulous Christmas scene was created on an Outside In Stitched Cloud shape! She used Winter Village and Winter Skies for the scene!

Jessica used a Stitched Circle for her adorable shaped card! She combined the mug and fun sentiment from Thanks a Latte with glittery snowflakes!

Franci created a sweet snowscape inside a Shadow Box Card using the cute penguins from Snow Cool! The pretty pastel colors are perfect in this frosty scene!

Karin‘s beautiful little Winter Skies scene looks so adorable in the heart-shaped card! She used an Outside In Stitched Heart with a Lacy Heart to create the card base.

Samantha C got really creative and made her card base using the Candy Box die! She used Holiday Sparkle cardstock to add the glittery silver to the sides and the sweet Holiday Helpers fit perfectly on this unique card design!

Joyce used our new Outside In Stitched Christmas Tree for her festive and fun shaped card! She added a Bannertastic banner with a greeting from Thanks a Latte! The fun accessories under the tree are from the Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On set!

Christy used the Shadow Box Card dies to make the box base and add the snowy trees! The Shadow Box Ocean Add-On was used to create the sweet scalloped window! She filled the scene with critters from Joy to the Woods and finished with a sentiment from Ready Set Snow for her fantastic holiday card!

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and of course we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 40 tomorrow!
