Last year, I made this here card and entered it into a contest that Lawn Fawn was having:
I look at this card with fondness because I made this before I joined the DT, and I just remember how fun it was to make cards for that contest. This one was one of the contest winners, so I was pretty jazzed about that!
Fast forward. Archiver's is now carrying Lawn Fawn stamps in their stores, and they wanted samples of a few projects for their stores! This card design was one of the ones they selected. Seriously, I couldn't believe it either. A few changes had to be made so that the samples reflected supplies that could be purchased at Archiver's stores. The clip had to be changed, all of the cardstock had to be changed, and a border punch had to be used instead of the die I used for the original card. Because of the very tight schedule [and because I didn't have the right purple and yellow cardstock], I really couldn't make the entire sample cards. I could only prepare this:
I cut, punched and stamped the top 'notebook page', and I stamped and cut out the letters and smiley faces. I know they look really small and innocent there, but cutting all of those letters out was a monster of a task [worth it for LF and Archiver's, though!]. I couldn't cut out the middles of the 'R' and 'D' -- in fact, I couldn't even glue the letters and smiley faces onto the notebook pages because there just wasn't enough time.
I put the letters and smiley faces into little baggies and sent the baggies and notebook pages to LF via FedEx -- which was actually late! It was just crazy. Customs actually opened everything -- can you imagine their reaction to tons of little fussy cut letters? Ha! A group of LF folks and volunteers spent a lot of hours putting together all of the samples in order to get them done in time, so they really deserve a standing ovation for all the work they put in!
Yesterday, Archiver's sent out an e.mail to those on their e.mail list, which included images of the samples! Here's the portion of their e.mail that included the Lawn Fawn announcement:
How neat, eh? I think Putter is definitely the star of the show here -- as he should be! :o) Who could resist that sweet little face? That little guy has MAJOR Cute Power! :o)
Thanks for stopping by today, folks! And thanks to those who visited and commented during the Lil' Inker Designs blog hop! Your comments made me smile non-stop, and teacher jessy's comment cracked me up! Thank you for that! :o)
