Hey everyone! While this is technically supposed to be "Blue Monday" AKA the saddest day of the year (who comes up with these things?) I am in a GREAT mood as I'm back on track with the Valentine series AND I have a big giveaway for my Canadian peeps at the end! (Those not in Canada don't worry - I still have more giveaways coming that will be open to everyone).
I've had this Lawn Fawn Woodland Critter Huggers die set sitting on my desk ever since it arrived, and this weekend finally got a chance to make all these critters with it and OMG is it ever fun to play with!
I also finally cut into my Lawn Fawn card stocks that I may have been hoarding for some time (I've been rather open about my "collecting" of Lawn Fawn rather than actually "using" it......what can I say I just love owning it LOL). The Lawn Fawn card stock is REALLY nice - a great weight and so many fun colors. They released several more "neutral" colors which made me really happy as there weren't any previously. And of course the colors were perfect for creating these critters.
I ended up adding some Ghirardelli chocolate squares to my characters and held them in place with a glue dot and added a little stitched heart die cut to finish them off.
The chocolates slip out easily, and I used mini glue dots to adhere the arms and the hearts so that if the kids want to play with these later or add other things it's easy to pry the arms apart (whereas liquid adhesive would be permanent and the only way to take the arms apart would be to tear them).
On the back of the fox critter hugger I made a pocket with the new Stitched Gift Card Pocket Lawn Cuts die. It fits the critters perfectly, and will be great on cards and tags too!

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the products have little icons below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. You can hover over the icons and it will tell you what store that link will take you to. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
