Video Friday: Lawn Fawn Scallop Box Card by Lesley Oman

I have never made my love of Lawn Fawn products a secret on this blog. They regularly feature on my wishlist. So, it was with great excitement that I awaited news of their new products for this Spring. When I came across this video by Lesley Oman from Creativation, my excitement tripled.

Lawn Fawn Scalloped BOX Card Die aka. My Saviour

I love making box cards, but I very rarely make them. Why? Because they’re such a pain! All the measuring and hand cutting the box and then trying to fit it all together? I just don’t have the patience for it.  So when I discovered Lawn Fawn were releasing a die to solve all my problems, my heart soared.

This video from Lesley perfectly demonstrates what can be done with the new die, as shown by the range of designs on display in the video. It looks super easy to use, which is great for a crafter with a busy life! Unsuprisingly, I’m also quite taken with the Meow You Doin’ Stamp and Die Sets – check out the inspiration from Lawn Fawn below!

Long story short, I cannot wait for Lawn Fawn’s new offerings. I am always uneasy about ordering from outside the UK (mainly due to shipping costs), but with a big enough shopping list, I think I’m going to bite the bullet and go ahead with an order!

How about you guys? Has anything from Lawn Fawn’s new range taken your fancy?

Christmas Card Challenge Day Five: Box Card

I feel like I’m slowly, slowly, pushing the edges of where I feel comfortable crafting, taking creative risks and trying new stuff out. This is one of those cards that’s pushed me a little bit further. It still feels really simple, but I’m happy with how it’s come out and I’m keen to try this out again in the future!

As I’ve continued to try and try out new card styles, I came across this video on the Docrafts channel. Below is my first attempt at an Exploding Box Card – not too adventurous, but I’m going to work up to it!
