Hello everyone. I know I said the other day I would share a little about how I made my lawn Fawn village stamp sets into Hogsmeade. It only takes a little imagination and a lot of patience to execute most ideas. This is something I had wanted to do for a while and just kept saying next time. But once I did it I fell in love.

This is an A2 sized version of the larger shadow box card I shared last week. And once again I used all LawnFawn products to create it. I created a short cut for myself though, and I made some tiny digital images of my magic Harry Potter elements so that I don’t have to hand draw them each time I remake this idea.

So I sized these to fit on top of the village shops and homes. And in the future I know I will play around with additional storefronts. I put a whole bunch on one layout so I could print out 12 of each design on one piece of Neena Solar White. I ran it through my scan and cut, which I don’t use very often, but I had put a new blade and I was fairly happy with the results. Now I will have a whole bunch of card candy, and it will only need minimal trimming and cleaning up. 

I colored my little images and then it was time for real life crafting. After stamping, coloring, and die cutting the rest of my images I was ready to begin assembling the shops. 

You can see here how I attached the snowdrift first ( which glimmers with wink of Stella) before putting on my signage. I did leave it popped up for some dimension. But that’s just how I roll. 

And a whole lot of tiny pieces later this is what I have. 

I knew I would need at least 3 layers, to fit all the “streets”. So I made my sky layer and trimmed a hillside to ground my castle and trees. Then I made a 2nd hillside layer to be my center street. I attached a third layer, the least rounded of the stitched hillsides, to the 2nd layer panel first, before attaching them with foam tape. Then I placed my shops on the taller of the two streets. Since perspective is everything, the butterbeer cart had to be upfront with the critters. The are larger after all and will appear closer. I also popped my little owl with the Letter from Hogwarts up in the sky so he looks like he’s making a delivery. 
I was able to take some nicer pics the following morning. And I can’t wait to see what the recipients have to say
