Weekly Recap // August 20, 2017

I actually did some scrapbooking this week- yay!!! I also made some cards, too, since Lawn Fawn is right in the middle of Release Week festivities.

Lawn Fawn has posted three of my projects on their blog so far, and I'll have two more up in the next few days. All of the new items will be available both at Lawn Fawn and other retailers on August 24th.


I had a lot of fun playing with my new Distress Oxide inks to make the night sky background for this card. It was super easy using the tips that Jennifer McGuire shared in a recent video. The stamps are from the new Costume Party set, and I also used the Village Border and Stitched Hillside Backdrop (Landscape) dies in the background.


I straight-up fell in love with the Shadow Box die from this release!! I didn't think it could get any better than the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up die, but this little guy is just amazing! It's so much fun to create scene cards that have some depth to them, and, as a bonus, they fold flat and can be mailed using regular envelopes and postage!


The stamps used here are from the new Forest Feast set. The tree and hill dies in the scene are actually part of the Shadow Box die set!


My next card was super simple, but sometimes that's what you need! I really wanted the colors in the candy corn (from the How You Bean: Candy Corn Add-On stamp set) to stand out, so I mounted the shaker jar (using some of the new Lawn Fawn chunky glitter as filler) on gray cardstock cut using the new Stitched Scallop Stackables dies.


The orange paper is from the new Knock On Wood paper line. I also used some aqua paper from the same collection on the shadow box card above. The woodgrain patterns are great for adding a little interest while still keeping things toned down.


The rest of the Lawn Fawn team has made so many amazing, gorgeous projects this week! If you want to check them out, here are links to the posts that are us so far for this Release Week:

Day 3: Shadow Box
Day 4: How You Bean? Candy Corn Add-On, Pumpkin Spice

Over at The Lilypad I made two digital layouts this week. The first uses one of the add-ons to the August 2017 Mixed Media Monthly kit. The theme this month is Outdoor/Wilderness/Explore, and it is totally amazing! I know I'll be scrapping lots more of my camping adventure photos with this collection.



I also made one catch-up Project Life layout using some of the 2016 Storyteller items that were in Wednesday's SOSN (Something Old, Something New) sale.

And, I know there's only one day left for this, but The Lilypad is having a storewide sale through Monday the 21st, and the entire store is 30% off! Just in case you feel like doing a little digital shopping. :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back again next weekend!
