Graphic 45 Farmhouse "Hello" Card

Hello everyone! 

Yesterday, Graphic 45 wrapped up their design team introductions by featuring a card I made for the legendary Annette Green! If you follow me on Instagram (@paperiah) you may have already seen it, but in case you're not on IG, I thought I'd share some photos of my card! 

I used bits and pieces from Farmhouse and Nature Sketchbook, along with Graphic 45's newest dies and stamps. You'll also see two different shades of rose bouquets. I really wanted to deck this card out for Annette because I know how much she adores bees! 

Thanks so much for looking and have a fabulous weekend!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #80 - Fun With Food (again!)


Sharing my second entry for the Fun With Food challenge, over at the Lawn Fawnatics blog. I recently got the Year Seven stamp and die set, which is so festive and fun - and, food-related! (Candy IS a food group, right?) I know a special little guy who is having a birthday soon and LOVES the color green, so here we are with this birthday shaker card:

To give the card a summer vibe, I framed it with some pink paper that Lawn Fawn included in my order. I thought it gave the card a watermelon-feel. Turns out the birthday boy loves watermelon! I used a few different papers to make my paper-pierced piƱata. (Say that three times fast!)

Inside the shaker are two kinds of green glitter and lots of little die-cut candies!

More paper piercing; this time with the cute confetti stamp that's included in the Year Seven set.

Oliver's Stitched ABC's is probably my favorite stand alone die set from Lawn Fawn! 

Thank you so much for looking and have a great day!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #80 Fun With Food

**UPDATE: My card was one of the featured cards from challenge #80!! Thank you so much, Lawn Fawnatics!!!**


Hi there!

Sharing a birthday card I made for another sweet friend AND for the Lawn Fawnatics current challenge, Fun With Food!

I used quite a few cute stamp sets and fun Lawn Fawn products like Sweet Friends, Bun in the Oven, Year Five (presents), Year Nine (party hats and candle), Out of This World, Grassy Border, Cloud Stencil, Reverse Scalloped Rectangles, Oliver’s ABC’s, Fancy Wavy Banners, and Dandy Day paper, to name a few!

I originally cut out the ABC's with the light pink paper from Dandy Day, but it was a little too light. I remember loving the way Tammy used two sets of letters on her S'MORE treat bag, so I did the same here! (Big fan girl over here!)

And speaking of s'mores, how many of you are scooping up the adorable S'More the Merrier set?? I told myself I was going to be good, but I may have to pick myself up a set. It's our 11th anniversary this weekend, so treat yo'self, right? Ooh .. that just gave me an idea for another card!

Thanks so much for looking! And as always, thank you for your sweet words! I've been having trouble trying to reply to comments here on blogger. I hope to get that straightened out soon. Have a great week!

Lawn Fawn Challenge 79 - Interactive Cards (second entry!)

Hi again!

Sharing another card for Lawn Fawn's current challenge, interactive cards! This one is a shaker card that I made for a super, duper sweet friend. As in, the SWEETEST friend ever.

I used Lawn Fawn's Sweet Friends set, the reverse scallop rectangle windows, Oliver's ABC's, Dandy Day petite pack, and lots of glitter! My favorite part was using some of the strawberries and little hearts from Sweet Friends as shaker elements. 

Glitter and sparkles galore! If you want to see this card in action, check out my Instagram @paperiah. Make sure to follow if you aren't already doing so - I often post things on there that I don't post here!

I am having so much fun making cards these days! But as life would have it, it's time to get back to adulting today. As in, clearing the greenhouse from blackberry bushes, organizing the "craft" room, and doing the little one's laundry while he's at the grandparents' house today. We'll see how much I get done! Especially considering I'll be in the craft room for half of the day, where my Lawn Fawn and Graphic 45 stashes live. Speaking of ... I have the gorgeous Fairie Wings collection and plan to make cards with that, too! Let's just say that my upcoming Club G45 kit will be featuring some projects with that pretty paper soon. ;) 

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a safe and happy 4th to all of my U.S. friends and family!
