May Arts & Lawn Fawn Blog Hop

Welcome to the May Arts & Lawn Fawn blog hop! We started this hop on Monday, so if you are just stopping by today, be sure to visit the May Arts & Lawn Fawn blogs to get the full lineup for the week! 

When I was told we would be working with Lawn Fawn, I got excited, I was immediately drawn to the adorable "Admit One" stamp set. I paired it with the Lawn Fawn "Dewey Decimal" paper pad because the colors were bright and fun.

I decided to try my hand at some cards today. I can't take full credit for the idea, I stumbled across it on Pinterest and fell in love with the little paper bags as envelopes. 

I added some of my favorite ribbon from May Arts, Teal Metallic Velvet (377-38-15) and Natural burlap string (SM09).


We are also having 2 giveaways of 3 spools of ribbon along with 1 stamp & die set. The first giveaway will take place Monday- Friday, the second will be over the weekend, Friday-Monday. Visit the May Arts blog for more details! 

Don't forget to visit ribbonistas Erin Thiem and Leah Farrar-White who are also up today with some great projects!
