Mimi’s Fun Lift the Flap Inspiration

We hope you are having fun with new Change the Scene challenge! It is a 3-week challenge that will be open until Sunday, September 4th at 11:59PM ET.

All of the auto specialties, mechanics, tire store and car wash, are really busy in Mimi‘s brilliant lift the flap card! When you open the Small Slimline with Lift the Flaps windows, you get a glimpse of the activity at each business!

Mimi inked a pretty backdrop on the Small Slimline with Lift the Flaps panel before she decorated each flap with a fun car theme! She combined Home for the Holidays cars, Smooth Sailing critters and Village Heroes fire station. She altered the little car to become the tow truck, adding the hook from Booyah and the package strings from Special Delivery Add-On. So clever!

Under the flaps you get a close up inside the tire store, the mechanics shop and the car wash! For this larger view she used the Car Critters car and critters from Berry Special, Scootin’ By and Merry Mice. To create the car wash, Mimi used the rolling pin from Baked with Love and the branch from Frosty Fairy Friends, how clever is that! Check out the supply list below for more images used in clever ways!

Thank you so much for inspiring us with this brilliant Change the Scene card, Mimi!

Jenn’s Clever Card Inspired by True Crime

We hope you are having fun with the Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song challenge and we can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until this Sunday, April 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Jenn joins us today with a super clever card inspired by her interest in true crime!

To create her “crime scene” Jenn combined Happy Village, Village Shops and Village Heroes sets. This is such a clever way to send apologies; her “Mea Culpa” greeting is spelled out with Finley’s ABCs.

Jenn even included the murder weapon; can you spot it? It’s from Pick of the Patch!

The crime scene tape is made using Harold’s ABCs along with yellow and black marker.

I love that Jenn includes her Copic marker list to make it easy to recreate her designs!

Thanks so much, Jenn for sharing your clever and unique inspiration today!

And for all the true crime fans out there, Jenn created a playlist of her favorite podcasts on Spotify.

Jenn has two new online Lawn Fawn classes coming up! Berry Fun and Rain or Shine! Have you signed up yet? These classes are open to everyone, worldwide! More details here

And be sure to put the next “Create with Us” Live event on your calendar and join Jenn and Kelly on April 8th as they craft up some cute Beary Rainy Day cards! More details about it here

Let’s see what inspires you in the world of entertainment and literature! Be sure to upload your entries to the gallery by 11:59PM ET on Sunday, April 3!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 103 -Little Things

It’s new challenge time again! For this challenge little things will be the stars of your project! Check out the sets in your stash, stamp or dies, and make the small images the focus of your design!

We invite 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, July 4th 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!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by this new theme!

Franci combined lots of the cute little things in Ocean Shell-fie and Mermaid for You to create this happy design!

Caly used the little things from A Bug Deal to create a colorful shaker card! She used the negative of the Giant Sending Big Hugs die to make the shaker window and backed it with Really Rainbow paper!

The adorable Bubbles of Joy mice are the little things in Christy‘s sweet card design! Those bubbles are amazing!

Jessica cleverly used Peas on Earth as her “little things”! It’s never too early to start making holiday cards and you probably have lots of Lawn Fawn sets with just the right little images!

Joyce had a similar idea to Caly’s! Great, creative minds thinking alike! The industrious ants from Crazy Antics look adorable scurrying across the Giant Sending Big Hugs die cut!

Karin‘s cheery card features Car Critters and Village Heroes! Her beautiful clean and simple design has just a hint of inking in the background to ground the images.

I love this clever card by Samantha! The Tiny Fairy Tale characters are great for this challenge! And the little sand castle from Life is Good is sized perfectly for a little fairy kingdom! Samantha used a Stitched Scalloped Square Frame and the long cloud from Unicorn Picnic to add magic to her design!

Samantha M. created a perfectly punny custom greeting to go with all her little things with shells! She combined Fintastic Friends, You Are Sublime and Ocean Shell-fie with the Stitched Wave Borders to make an underwater scene! She stenciled bubbles in the background and stamped lots tiny fish from Mermaid for You as well!

Jessica wasn’t the only team member looking ahead to some holiday fun! Jenn’s jack o’lantern is made with Outside In Stitched Pumpkin. She filled the background with fun little things from Plan on It: Holidays and more of our Halloween sets!

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 102 – All Things Ocean tomorrow!
