Hi everyone! It's Amy Heller here today I'm so excited to be guesting for Lawn Fawn today! A little about me:
I was introduced to scrapping in 2004, like many scrappers, from an in-home party. But I didn't scrap with real consistency until 2008, once my kids were a bit older and out of their infancy stages. :) As a graphic designer by profession, this hobby has brought me back to the fundamental reasons why I fell in love with design in the first place : paper, color, letter form and layout. My style has, of course, evolved from those early days. Now I would definitely say that I have a fun, cheerful, colorful and whimsical style. I LOVE to layer pattern, color and texture (especially with buttons, ribbon and sewing). I think it's safe to say that I love to embellish on my work. :) I currently design for American Crafts, October Afternoon, and am a Garden Girl for Two Peas in a Bucket. I've been fortunate to have had my work published in several magazines ranging from Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends, CARDS, Paper Crafts as well as Scrapbooks and Cards Today. I am from the beautiful state of Washington, but I currently live in a small quintessential New England town in Connecticut with my awesome husband of 12 years, our daughter, 9, and our son who nearly 6.
Thank you so much for joining us today, Amy!

Amy's layout is one of those layouts that makes my jaw drop! I just love how she used Flutter By and paper piecing to create a gorgeous garden! The Lawn Trimmings twine looks amazing as the butterfly bodies, and the buttons look so cute on the flowers. I also adore how she tied the twine around the photos, too. The Bright Side stickers look fantastic with the mixed sized title. Thank you so much for the inspiration, Amy!
Tiffany's layout of her new baby girl is just perfect! How amazing are those flowers?! I love the Silver Lining chevron paper as the sky and her photos are just adorable! I just had to get a Lawn Fawn onesie made for our new little Fawnie and I think she looks adorable in it! :) The Lawn Trimmings twine looks great as the clothesline, too!
Melissa S.'s layout is so fun! I adore the strips on the sides of the layouts, and her custom cut titles are so cool! What a fun way to do a list of nicknames! Critters Ever After is the perfect set because Melissa's cat's name is Griffin! She also cut one of the cards out of our Happy Thoughts paper for journaling. Perfect!
Melissa M.'s layout is so fun. How cool are those circles?! I just love the pennants coming down, too. This is such a create go to layout! It is great how she picked out the kraft, teals and greys for her layout. It is a really fun color combo. Combining Claire's ABCs with the Bright Side stickers is perfect because they are the same font!
Kim's layout is so fun! I just love the Jump For Joy kraft paper as a background. The frames cut from patterned paper around the photos looks awesome, and I just love the way that Kim layered all of the strips. It looks as fun as her trip was! :)
Linda's layout is so clever! I just love the way she cut titles out in the Say Cheese polaroids and then layered the 6x6 papers behind it. So cool! The pennants were also done from the 6x6 papers which shows how fun these are to use on layouts. I also just love the airmail strips from You've Got Mail around the journaling. Perfect!
Make sure you click on each of the design team's names or pictures to go to their blogs and see the details of how they made their cards. You will walk away inspired for sure!
Now, I have a little video for you showing our Lawn Trimmings twine and some fun things you can do with it! I hope you enjoy it! Watch it below or at our You Tube channel.
