Lawn Fawn Hop Into Spring Class With Jenn Shurkus

I had the opportunity this past weekend to attend one of Jenn Shurkus’ classes. She was up in Edmonton, AB (Canada) teaching 2 classes: Hop Into Spring and Spring Fling. I attended the Hop Into Spring Class, which was about 3 hours long and featured products from Lawn Fawn’s Spring 2019 Release.

I didn’t know Edmonton had a store that actually sold Lawn Fawn products. I’ve been buying online from the U.S. for the last 3 years! Now if only there was a store that had Mama Elephant here, I’d be set! Seeing products on a computer screen doesn’t always do them justice so I loved being able to see/touch products in person (ie. the prisma glitter and pixie dust sparkle card stock).

In the class, we made 5 cards, including 2 interactive cards. Little kits for each card were given to us with all the stamping (except the sentiment) and die cutting already done for us. We just had to colour and assemble them. You can check them out below:

Stamps and Dies Used:
1. Butterfly Kisses
2. Butterfly Kisses Lawn Cuts
3. Simple Wavy Sentiments
4. Simple Wavy Banners
5. Straight Flower Border
6. Small Stitched 4 Bar Rectangles

What I learned from this card: We used Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter on the, “Thinking of you” sentiment, as well as the flower crown, butterflies, stomachs of the bunnies. The glitter is so pretty in person!!! I also didn’t own a Quickie Glue Pen until I attended this class. It applies glue so smoothly and is completely odourless! It’s absolutely amazing for adhering glitter to your projects, it dries so fast and is practically invisible.

Stamps and Dies Used:
1. Oh Gnome!
2. Oh Gnome! Lawn Cuts
3. Mushroom Border
4. Simple Wavy Banners
5. Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle Stackables

What I learned from this card: Patterned paper sometimes might be a bit too overwhelming for a card design. Utilizing vellum over top the patterned paper mutes the busy pattern just enough as to not distract from the main focus of the card.

Stamps and Dies Used:
1. Layered Butterflies
2. Simple Wavy Sentiments
3. Fancy Wavy Banners
4. Reveal Wheel
5. Reveal Wheel Square Add On
6. Reveal Wheel Butterfly Add On
7. Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts

What I learned from this card: This was my first reveal wheel card so it was great to be able to assemble one! Lawn Fawn’s Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock is gorgeous in person but DID YOU KNOW, you can colour it with your alcohol ink markers to dye it whatever colour you want!?

Stamps and Dies Used:
1. Simply Celebrate Spring
2. Simply Celebrate Spring Lawn Cuts
3. Open Me
4. Open Me Lawn Cuts
5. Simple Wavy Banners
6. Pop-Up Butterfly

What I learned from this card: Even though this card is really simple, the pop up butterfly is a great surprise to add to the inside of a card. I actually made the mistake of assembling it backwards but it still worked well and you can’t really even tell.

Stamps and Dies Used:
1. Get Well Before n’ Afters
2. Get Well Before n’ Afters Lawn Cuts
3. Magic Picture Changer
4. Magic Picture Changer Add-On
5. Fancy Wavy Banners

What I learned from this card: I was looking forward to building this card the most. This was my first magic picture changer card and I was on the fence about buying the die because I wasn’t sure if I’d use it. I really just wanted to play with it first. Verdict: I LOVE IT! The mechanism is really neat and Lawn Fawn made it SO EASY to assemble that you think you were making a mistake because it’s so easy.

Overall, It was a great class! If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of Jenn Shurkus’ classes, I highly recommend it! She has the best puns and makes the classes wicked fun!
