Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Fa-la-la

Hello there! Lawn Fawn is having its September Inspiration Week. This means lots of eye candy AND prizes for you!

Monday's focus is on the new paper line Fa-la-la! Click here to see all the products in this line. And as with everything Lawn Fawn, it's super cute!

When I'm stumped design-wise, I usually return to this sketch: 8.5" x 11", photos across the middle, journaling below, patterned paper above. It's clean, it's well balanced, it's effective.

The Christmas tree paper is my favorite and it was perfect for a layout about Christmas trees! This was our tree from last year, in following our tradition of going out and cutting a fresh tree ourselves. There was a huge contrast between what our past tree cutting trips had been, and what they are now.

Cold vs warm. Snow vs. sunshine. Hard pine vs. soft pine. Hot chocolate vs. Mexican food. Bundled up vs. T-shirts and shorts. And did I mention the palm trees surrounding the pines? Crazy!

But in the end, it's not about the tree or the weather conditions. It's about what Christmas means to us. And that we can carry from location to location.

The red chevron paper paper is actually the B-side of the brand/upc strip. And the Fa-la-la title is the name of the Elements sticker sheet. I love it when I can use every single piece of scrap!

Don't forget to drop by Lawn Fawn's blog and leave a comment to win. Come back tomorrow for more Lawn Fawn projects. Have a great day!

Its so simple yet so creative. I love how simple it is but still showcases the paper and captures the theme. :)
