Lawn Fawn: October Inspiration Week

Hey friends! Lawn Fawn's October Inspiration Week is drawing to a close soon! This month's theme is winter/holidays. And Lawn Fawn has so many new super adorable stamp sets.

I created two layouts for this week. This first one uses Red, Set, Snow stamps, the matching diesLawn TrimmingsLet's Bokeh In The Snow papers, gold embossing powder, and my most favorite white ink!

I've always loved snow. It requires very specific conditions to happen. And while it happens regularly in some places, it always feels magical to me. I remember the first time I saw snow falling. I was mesmerized. I was also at work, and spent a good 15 minutes staring out the window until my co-workers called me on it. Nothing like peer shaming... Sigh. But anyway, now that I live in the land of eternal sunshine, I really really miss snow. I miss staying in with the kids and getting all cozy with our hot chocolates and a movie. I miss going out and playing in it. I miss shoveling. Yes, shoveling! I miss it a lot.

Let's also talk a little about this white ink created by Lawn Fawn. It's called Yeti (insert heart icon x 2.) It's a pigment ink, so you can stamp on dark surfaces and it shows. It's honestly the best one out there. And I know, because I've tried them all.

This other layout is about the foods we eat around the holidays. I love a good traditional turkey/ham/stuffing/biscuits type meal, and I look forward to it all year long, until Thanksgiving. But by the time Christmas rolls around, I want something else entirely. And apparently so does my family. So a few years ago, we started eating either dim sum or xiao long bao on Christmas Eve, fondue on Christmas, and various other foods between the 25th and New Year's Eve. But we still stick to Hoppin' John on New Year's Day. Because, tradition. (And the hope for a lucky and prosperous new year.)

This layout uses Let's Bokeh In The Snow papers, Lawn Trimmings, Merry Christmas and Stitched Circle Tags dies. The little gingerbread person is from the Oh Snap. Cutest stamp set this release!
