    Woodland Critter Hugger Hedgehog

    Hello Creatives!

    Today I am sharing a few projects I have created for Valentine’s Day using the Lawn Fawn Woodland Critter Huggers die set again! I love it soooo much!

    Anyways this time I wanted to try a hedgehog. I played around with some ideas until I finally figured out I could use the antler die (within the set) to use for the Hedgie’s spines, that’s the spiky part.

    So first I took the main body trimmed the ears so they weren’t so pointy. Then I die cut a bunch of spines. Using a piece of copy paper I traced the body, so I could lay out the spines around the outer side of the body just to gage how many spines I would need. I then used liquid glue so I would have some wiggle room to move the spines around.

    After this was completed I added the belly, face, nose, eyes, cheeks and then added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s How You Bean? Conversation Heart Add-On Stamps (Luv U).

    This one actually when the arms are closed it reads, “Luv U” and when they open it says, “This Much”.

    Here is what I came up with…

    hedgie1
    Luv U
    hedgie2
    This Much
    hedgie card
    Luv U This Much

    Here is another version of the hedgehog… I used the same Woodland Critter Hugger die also, used, Lawn Fawn’s Sending Hedgehugs Stamp.

    And it wouldn’t be complete without a very special, blue hedgehog to add to this list!!

    How to Turn Woodland Critter into Cute Ponies

    Hello Creatives!

    Sorry it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here but I’ve been sick off and on this winter. Now I’ve been trying to get my creative mojo back!

    Anyways today I am excited to share a new project with you. I am using Lawn Fawn products from their winter release, Woodland Critter Huggers (dies) and a few other dies as well. This is a versatile set! They have all the critters they came up with on their website but when I saw this die set, an idea snuck up and I wondered if I could pull it off.

    My daughter is a big fan of My Little Pony and was excited to see the new movie. So, I thought I would just try to figure out a way to make this critter die set into the ponies…

    I used the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes 6×6 Paper Pack and Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid: Rainbow Petite 6×6 Paper Pack along with white cardstock for each pony and die cut them out. I used LF Narwhal & Friends die set for the unicorn horns and, once each pony was complete I used LF Stitched Party Banner die set using white cardstock and then adhered the ponies to the banner. I also, used LF Scripty Friends die because all the ponies together create the power of friendship! I have watched the show many times with my daughter!

    Once complete, I added the pony’s cutie mark to the front of the banner or to the pony. I also, added other embellishments such as sequins and used the Spectrum Shimmer Clear marker. I added a ribbon to put them all together they look like they are holding hooves! Anyways in case you didn’t know who is who, from left to right:

    Rainbow Dash (Blue, Sporty Pegasus)

    Twilight Sparkle (Purple, Princess Alicorn)

    Rarity (White, Fashionista Unicorn)

    Fluttershy (Yellow, Shy nature loving Pegasus)

    Anyways I think I pulled it off! I hope you like them! Let me know what you think. Who’s your favorite My Little Pony?

    Thanks for stopping in!

    How to Make a Pennant Banner

    Hello Creatives!

    My next project showcasing my new font (the animal crackers) is using a pennant I created on my computer.

    Pin it!

    I made my pennant into a banner for my kids’ rooms using a pattern from my font and put it onto my pennant. Also, I used heart shapes and spelled out their names using the caps font. Once they were printed, I cut them out and taped them onto each pennant. When my kids came home from school, they were super excited about them and wanted to put them in their rooms.

    Anyways, I’m giving you guys, the Pennant Banner & Shapes Template for free, you can also, find it on my Freebies page on my website. Just follow the printing instructions, when printed onto a regular sized 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper/cardstock, you will be able to fold it in half and it should line up perfectly. Get some twine and you’re done! You now have a cute pennant banner! Feel free to create your own pattern using your computer or with your rubber stamps or whatever you have will work.

    Thanks for stopping in Creatives! See you again soon!

    Take care

    How to Make Lunchbox Notes

    Hello Creatives!

    Go easy on me, this is my first ever blog post on my first ever website (that I’ve been working on for a long time!). I’ve also, just released my first ever font, it’s a playful font trio called, The Animal Crackers. It showcases uppercase letters, script letters, and symbols.

    Anyways I thought I’d share a few projects with you on fun ideas on how you can use this font.

    Pin it!

    My first idea was to create lunch box notes for my kids using my symbols font, the symbols are almost all animal characters. If you are following along and you don’t have kids, you can make this for adults too! I created a template, typed out an animal and then put a fun sentiment with it, then I printed it out on cardstock.

    I made the template so you could just use scissors or a paper cutter to cut them out with enough space so you could fold it over to make the little notecard. When you print it out the squares should measure 2″x2″. I made sure the ink was dry, then colored the little animals in with my Copic markers but you could use any type of medium, or just let the recipient color it. Now, I have a handful of sweet, notes to give to my kids for their lunches and/or if they are having a bad day! Sometimes our littles need to know we do care about them too! My youngest already saw these and has claimed some of them!

    As a gift to you, in honor of my new website and font release, I’m offering the lunchbox notes template as a freebie so you can print some out and give to your kids/loved ones. I’ve also, included a blank template for you to create your own notes. I hope you enjoy! Kid’s Lunchbox Notecard Template

    Take Care and thanks so much for stopping in! I hope you will stop in again to see more of my projects!

    Bye for now!
