Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 76 – Anything But a Card!

Hello Fawnatics friends! It’s time to kick off May with a new challenge! We have all been making lots of cards lately to send encouragement and smiles so for this challenge we would like you to make anything but a card! Make a mixed media journal page, Bible journal, a scrapbook layout, a gift or favor box! The sky is the limit as long as it’s not a card!

We would love for you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, May 17th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

So let’s see how the Design Team was inspired by this new challenge!

Samantha M. is a talented scrapbooker and this layout sure proves it! She combined Outside In Stitched Cloud Stackables, Stitched Cloud Frames and Starry Backdrops stamps with some fun stenciled texture! The title is Oliver’s Stitched ABCs!

I love how Samantha C combined the cute Really High Five critters jumping on their trampoline with the Scalloped Treat Spring House Add-On! Such a fun 3D scene!

Franci‘s “Anything But a Card” project is an adorable stack of Tiny Gift Boxes! She decorated them with the cute little bow included in the die set then she added the happy ducks from Rub-A-Dub-Dub! These would be so cute for a baby shower!

Jessica made sweet little Pillow Box thank you gifts! She used Hello Sunshine Remix papers and added a gorgeous Layered Butterfly on each one! The sentiment on the little tag is from Reveal Wheel Sentiments!

Karin‘s Heart Treat Boxes are a delightful design with a pop of color! The Chili Pepper red boxes are decorated with a little cutie from A Bug Deal on an ink blended heart!

The pastel colors of Joyce‘s beach house treat box give a sun-washed beachy vibe! It’s perfect for summer gift giving!

I love when the older sets come out to play! Christy decorated her Woodgrain Goodie Bag with a sweet little Critters in the Forest vignette! She framed the circle scene with a Scalloped Circle of Fall Fling paper!

Caly‘s treat box is a Spring House Add-On design complete with charming accents of a picket fence and pretty flower-filled window boxes!

I want to get in on the fun of this challenge, too! I decorated a Hello Sunshine Remix Mini Notebook using Outside In Stitched Cloud Stackables! The label combines Riley’s ABCs in rainbow ink colors along with a sentiment from Happy Harvest. I used the cute smileys from Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments to add some whimsy and tied on some Mermaid’s Lagoon Sparkle cord.



We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 75 tomorrow!

We have invited Mona Toth to join us as our Guest Designer for this challenge! Her bright and cheerful designs are favorites with cardmakers on Instagram and we knew she would make something amazing for this challenge!

Mona created a totally brilliant infinity style party invitation! Each time the card is unfolded it opens to another fabulous scene with more to the invitation!

Mona embellished her infinity card with many underwater classics like Mermaid for You, You are Sublime, Octopi my Heart and So Jelly along with Quinn’s Capital ABCs dies.

Infinity card designs can be a little tricky to make so Mona made a video tutorial to show you how to create one! You can check it out at her YouTube channel.

Now let’s check out the fabulous Perfect for Parties projects by our amazing Design Team!

Grace‘s adorable picnic party decor is perfect for celebrating summer! She customized the Cake Slice Box with a mix of green and red patterned papers to create the fun watermelon treat boxes! Then she used a much loved older mini set, Happy Summer to make watermelon cupcake toppers and to decorate the Scalloped Treat Box and a sweet little note!

Christy has a new puppy to love so she made a super fun treat box for Gemma‘s new friends! She used the Milk Carton die set along with cute pups from Critters at the Dog Park and Say What? Pets! She decorated the milk carton box with elements from Scalloped Treat Box Spring House Add-On!

Samantha is celebrating her son’s graduation from 5th grade and that’s a pretty big occasion! She made these totally cool straws for the party using Outside In Stitched Cloud Stackables and Stitched Cloud Frames along with the paper airplane from Plane and Simple and a fun sentiment from Party Animal on a Fancy Wavy Banner!

Jessica created these super cute Tiny Gift Boxes for her music students to celebrate the end of year recital! The gift boxes are decorated with images from Critter Concert and Little Music Notes!

Joyce used Goodie Bag and a Stitched Gift Card Pocket to make a super adorable birthday gift bag! She used Gingham Backdrops to add some cute pattern to the box, then she filled the pocket with little bears from For You, Deer!

What is better for a summer party than yummy strawberry pie! Samantha created the perfect pie treat box using Cake Slice Box and the new new Stitched Cupcake die set!

Karin made a sweet card and gift box set for a new baby baptism party! She used the darling bunnies and greeting from Hello Baby with a Lacy Heart and Outside In Stitched Heart Stackable on the card! She added another cute bunny to the Heart Treat Box!

Franci‘s charming Tiny Gift Box Cat Add-On box would be perfect to celebrate a new kitten in the family! They would be so cute filled with candy or maybe a treat to share with a special kitty!

Sweet Treat Packaging with Karin!

For our Fun with Food challenge Karin used real food, yummy cookies to be exact, and created adorable packaging for the sweet treat!

These delicious shortbread cookies are gathered into a cellophane bag tied up with Lawn Trimmings twine! They will fit perfectly inside the Scalloped Treat Box!

Karin used the Scalloped Treat Box Spring House Add-On to give her treat box charming details like the roof, door, windows and window boxes!

The adorable critters from Butterfly Kisses and Eggstra Amazing Easter add some whimsy to Karin’s brilliant treat box design!

Thanks for thinking outside the box by putting your cookies inside a treat box, Karin! It is such a fun and adorable idea!

We hope Karin has inspired a creative spark in you! We can’t wait to see your Fun with Food projects linked in the gallery on the challenge post HERE! The Fun with Food challenge will continue through Sunday April 14 at 11:59PM ET.
