Lawnscaping Challenge: Critters Galore sponsored by LAWN FAWN

Challenge No. 90

Good evening!
I have a quick post and another entry for the Lawnscaping Challenge No. 90.

For the challenge I used:
American Crafts - premium ribbon
EK Success - banner punch
Core'dinations - black cardstock
Flower foam wreath
Light blue yarn
Copic Markers 
Lawn Fawn - Into the Woods stamps and dies
Lawn Fawn - scrapbook paper

First I stamped the image on white cardstock. I used Copic markers to color the animals. I fussy cut the animals so there was no edging. I then the coordinating animal die and cut out shadows of the animals using black cardstock. I was trying to find another way to make the animals pop on the paper. I also used my Prismacolor black pencil to fill in any white spots on the image where it needed to be black. I attached the finished colored image to the black cardstock and added the two pieces to the banner, attaching it with pop dots. 
Have a great night everyone!

Lawnscaping Challenge #90

Good afternoon!
Today I created an item for the:

Lawnscaping Challenge: Critters Galore sponsored by LAWN FAWN

Here is a direct link to the page so you can see all the cuteness the Design Team has come up with

A few months ago we went to the FIT store in downtown Houston. You can find items similar to the ones from the Y100 store in Japan. Most of the items are $2, unless marked otherwise. I picked up some cellphone straps to add charms to. I used the Into the Woods stamp and matching die set from Lawn Fawn to create the entry. Other items I used to create this item were: Shrinky Dink paper, Sharpie markers, StazOn ink, and jump rings. 

Have a great day everyone!

Second post

I have been working on a craft/sketchbook for our goddaughter, Nicole. Here are some pictures of the project.

 I was trying to decide which nautical paperclip to use with the book....I like the whale.
Last year, before the Katy, TX Archiver's closed I picked up some beach theme scrapbook paper. I used my Cricut Expression2 to create her name for the front. The mermaid is from CC Designs.

On the left, my son had sewn the purple paper to create a pocket. 

I put a little note in the book so she would know what type of paper was inside. The paper can be used with stamps, markers, paints etc. 

This is the back inside cover and pocket.

This is the back cover, it also has some pockets. 

Have a great day!:0)
