Regular readers here on the blog already know how much I adore Lawn Fawn (I'll admit that as a design team member I just might be a little partial!). I first met owner Kelly Marie Alvarez at CHA Winter 2012, where Lawn Fawn launched its first ever paper line, Bright Side. She's one of the kindest, sweetest people in the industry, and her company cares about quality and taking care of customers- all of the products are made in the US, and Lawn Fawn is still very much a family-run operation!
Lawn Fawn has been steadily growing, and I was excited see that the booth was packed when I stopped by the first morning of the CHA Winter 2013 show. Every time I walked by I was just amazed by the size of the crowd! I actually had to come back two separate times to finish getting photos of all the goods, and I have pictures of all ten new stamps sets, both new papers lines, and of course the new dies (and a few other surprises!) to share!
The new stamp sets are adorable and oh-so-usable. Critters on the Savanna (above) extends Lawn Fawn's signature "critters" series of stamps, and there are also trendy mason jars and an adorable fortune cookie set, as well.
There's also a new alphabet and a new set of background stamps (Sharp Backdrops) that I cannot wait to get my hands on!
And of course Lawn Fawn is still offering the entire back-catalog of its stamps, as well.
Coordinating dies are a new item for Lawn Fawn at this show, and they're offering sets to coordinate both with some of their existing stamp sets as well as the new ones! Those speech bubbles are going to be a hit for sure, and there's also a Polaroid die to match one of Lawn Fawn's most popular stamp sets ever, Say Cheese.
I'm especially excited about the dies that coordinate with the existing Quinn's ABCs stamp set. I can see lots of uses for these with felt, coaster board, or maybe even foam sheets! I'm looking forward to seeing how many mediums they're compatible with!
Lawn Fawn had a surprise up its sleeves that not even the design team knew about before the show! We'd all known for a while that Kelly wanted to offer Lawn Fawn stamp blocks, and the sample models came in just days before the start of the show. I was quite excited when I walked into the booth and Kelly's husband showed me the display. The blocks will come in a variety of shapes and sizes, are made in the USA just like all of Lawn Fawn's other products, and have the most awesome finger grooves in the sides. As soon as I picked one up at the show, I was in love!
Lawn Fawn also introduced two new paper lines at the show, full of fun summer colors and patterns.
Pink Lemonade has a cheery orange, pink, yellow, and green palette...and check out those mason jars!
The paper collections also include matching alphabet and phrase stickers along with a coordinating 6x6 pad.
Daphne's Closet shows Lawn Fawn's trendier side, and some of those same arrow and triangle motifs that you'll find in the Sharp Backdrops stamp set are here, as well.
There are also three new shades of Lawn Trimmings hemp cord to coordinate with all the new papers- Lemon and Lime are yellow/white and green/white combinations while Pink Lemonade is a beautiful blend of orange, pink, and yellow.
Lawn Fawn's new items are scheduled to ship to stores in February. You can shop for Lawn Fawn products at Two Peas in a Bucket, Scrapbook.com, and Simon Says Stamp.
