7 Gypsies, Artist Printer's Tray, Classes, Cruising Through Life, Lawn Fawn, Simple Stories, The Paperie, Year.o.graphy
A little while ago, I taught a class where we made a LO and a card using the Lawn Fawn Cruising Through Life stamp set. The best part? Everyone got a stamp set to take home!
This is a seriously cute set – a bicycle, pinwheels, flowers. Really, what’s not to like?
For the life of me, I can’t find the card, but here’s the LO:
There’s some extreme paper piecing happening here – every individual flower, the bike basket, the clouds, all the bike parts: handles, pedal, frame. I don’t think I was very popular at first but luckily, everyone loved the results! 🙂
It’s one of those LO’s that at first glance looks easier than it really is. It’s the final details that make it pop, like the glossy accents over the bike frame, the popped up basket and clouds, the button sun.
Here’s a little stamp tip – make the stamps do what you want, not what you think they were meant to do. For example, I made the butterflies from the heart and exclamation point that are in the set and I cut the sentiment in half so it fit the space I had.
All in all, worth the time, I think!
I also have another new class coming up at The Paperie at the end of the month – a 7 Gypsies Artist Printer’s Tray filled with Simple Stories Year.o.graphy paper:
Lots of die cuts and stickles on this one – a great Spring piece to display!
Looking forward to the Canvas class on Sunday – only 1 or 2 spots left in that one. I also have another few class ideas up my sleeves, unfortunately, more ideas than time!
Have a great weekend and hopefully, you get a chance to be creative in whatever way you prefer!
Guess Darrell will have to get busy making a fancy “Removed for Publication” sign 😉
What cloud stamp/dies did you use? I love the shapes! 🙂 This layout is gorgeous!!!
Thanks Kyrsten! I actually cut the clouds from some Bella Blvd patterned paper (One Fall Day collection, Chance of Rain paper), but the swirls around the clouds are from the Lawn Fawn stamp set.
can’t wait for sunday’s canvas class
hmmmm that tray looks great, may have to look into that one

All your creations are so beautiful… thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks Stephanie – haven’t seen you or your mom in ages!
I had so much fun at the class the other evening! It is taking all of my will power to resist diving into your world, that and a lack of space and funds! 😉
