Happy Friday and Happy July! We love the beginning of a new month--so many new things--new sponsors, new guest designers, and a new theme tying together our Case Files. This week we present our Major Case File, which stays open for investigation for the whole month and features our Composite Sketch, created just for us by The Nifty Pixel!
We're so excited to have 5 main sponsors this month! They are presented alphabetically.

We’re a small company from Southern California that specializes in crafting products that are fun and lively. It began in March 2010 with a simple idea… to create clear stamps that bring smiles into people's lives. With that idea, a little creativity, and inspiration from the card-making community, Lawn Fawn was born!
It’s hard to believe how much we have grown since then. Our collection of clear stamps gets larger every year, plus we have introduced lots of new products along the way. We now have dies, paper, twine, and ink pads, just to name a few!
Our products feature original designs that range from versatile basics (we love alphabets and polka dots) to fun and quirky (yay for yetis!) and everything in between. And of course, we use the highest quality photo-polymer for our stamps, FSC certified paper, and 100% steel for our dies.
Visit us anytime to browse our latest products or simply find inspiration! And don't forget to check out our Flickr and Facebook pages, follow us on Twitter and read our blog. We love to feature our customers and give away free stuff!
We hope our products make you smile!
