Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge!!!!!! Can you believe it is AUGUST already? This week' it's all about distressing!  Whether you use ink, an edge distresser or paper, find a way to incorporate distressing into your project this week!

We are sponsored by the amazing SIMON SAYS STAMP! The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to their store!!!!! :)


Before I share the amazing projects the design team created, I wanted to give a big thanks to the fabulous Niki Estes for joining us in July! We were honored to have you join us!!!!!! 

We have another treat in store for you this month. Please welcome Jenny Suchin as our August Guest Designer. She is the creator of the Wee Memories Design Team and also serves on the Twinery Design Team. She recently just designed her very own stamps (SUPER CUTE I MIGHT ADD) which are featured over at the Craft's Meow this week. Welcome Jenny!!!! 

For some additional inspiration, let's check out the Design Team's projects using Lawn Fawn stamps. Be sure to click on each of the designer links to be taken directly to their blogs and get the deets on each of their projects...

**Please remember to take a look at the rules in order to be eligible to win. We have had a few projects that were well received by the Design Team, but unfortunately because rules were not followed, were not eligible to win.**

International Players: International shipping has become quite expensive it seems. We will pay a portion of shipping if the winner is international, but the remaining cost is the responsibility of the winner. 

PLEASE DISABLE YOUR WORD VERIFICATION!! :) The Design Team wants to stop by and leave you some love, but we will only leave comments on those who have been kind enough to disable their word verification.


  1. Oh, what a fun challenge! Beautiful inspiring cards, ladies :)

  2. I am a new follower. Love a good challenge. I usually do layouts instead of cards.

  3. This is my first time entering a Lawnscaping Challenge. It looked like so much fun! I haven't made a card with a distressing technique in a while, thanks for the inspiration. LOVE the cards being entered!

  4. I've been wanting to play along with Lawnscaping Challenges for awhile now and finally did. The DT creations are so inspiring and the other entries are out of this world! There is so much talent out there I don't know how you choose each week :)

  5. Hmmm!! Thanks for the fun challenge and stunning DT cards.

  6. Thanks for the fun challenge! I have been drooling to play the challenge here...I JUST got my first set of LF stamps :)

  7. Thanks for nudging me out of my comfort zone :D

  8. I just found your blog last night and loved the excuse, um, reason to use my Lawn Fawn stamps! :) I "like" you on Facebook... hope that counts as being a follower.

    I'm looking forward to more challenges!
