Charming Collage Card Toppers

Today I'm sharing some projects using Anna Griffin's new Vintage Collage Card Toppers. These little die cuts are so much fun, they are already layered and make your project look like you spend forever, but really didn't.  And there are so many cute ones, and for all occasions and make really elegant cards, but I'm sharing layouts!

I thought these would be perfect for a graduation themed project. I just added some blooms and a photo matt and was pretty much done!


For this one I used the Seafarer collection. I love that some of the toppers match this fun collection. Great for vacation or any Summer theme project! Or if you just live in a tropical area!!!


There are lots and lots of Birthday ones to choose from! So many gorgeous choices! I loved them all!


There are also more masculine choices in this kit! So I made a fun Father's Day layout with them!


Last, there are some that match Charlotte! That is my favorite collection! I was so happy to see them in this kit!




 This is a fun embellie kit that you will find yourself reaching for over and over. And you will always have a hard time choosing because they are all so beautiful!! Thank you so much for stopping by and I will be back to share more Anna Griffin goodness later!!! Her next HSN show is coming up in March!!!

Wishful Thinking by Anna Griffin

Today I'm sharing another product from last week's HSN shows and Anna's 7th Anniversary! This is the "Wishful Thinking" dies and folders. These dies are a collection of words and they are smaller than the ones previously done.


On this first layout I used the 2 word dies and one of the folders. I used the folder for framing the photo. They are really made to emboss the words after die cutting. But I liked the little dots! I used  Nifty Nested Layer and a couple of Favorite Flowers stickers.



On this one I used the Rose collection papers.  I grouped more of the words together for this layout.


 On this page I used the words just as a highlight on the title of the page. I cut two of each and used the smallest foam squares between, then used a premade "congratulations" sticker and placed them all on a title circle diecut. I used the Charlotte collection here! My favorite collection!!



For this one I used more words again. The script font mixed with the simpler one gives a really pretty look!


Here I cut two of each, one yellow and one in blue glitter paper and used foam squares again and just repeated them. I used a folder again as a frame for the photo.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back with another post soon to share a different product!!! Thanks again!!!!

Are you ready for 2017, HSN & Anna Griffin?

Yesterday was 24 Hour Craft Day at HSN and Anna had some super exciting new products. Lots of things sold out but it was a great show!!! I'm going to share a few of the projects that I created for the show, they were all so much fun!!!!

I'll start with my favorite! The Trilliage Folders, Dies and Die-cuts!!! These are such awesome folders, dies and die-cuts. The dies are fencing, urns, planters and the folders are trellis and gate!!! Then you have the die-cuts, all kinds of beautiful flowers and foliage to put into the planters and the trellis. Also trees and clouds for the backgrounds!!! So much fun!!! I could keep creating scenes with these products!!!







Here are the die-cuts.........
 and here are the dies and folders.........


The cards that were created for the shows were gorgeous!!!! You can check Anna's Pinterest page or HSN to see some of them!!! 

Instead of showing all of the projects in one post I'm going to be spreading them out this week, so please check back to see what else I have to share with the wonderful Anna Griffin goodies!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

End of the Year Anna Griffin!!!

Anna had her last HSN show for the year last month and there were lots of new products and old favorites as well.  One of the new items was the popular Nifty Nested Layers in Holiday colors. While they are bright and festive, more so than the original set they are still very versatile!

On this layout I layered and also cut parts out from matching patterns in different colors and popped them up with foam dots for some extra dimension.

This one was done just by layering the gold and gray together and then fussy cutting some elements that matched

The same was done on this one, just two colors layered together. then added some 3d stsickers and title.

I made a couple of matching cards for these also. Super easy to work with these layers and they look wonderful and elegant. Just like all of Anna Griffin's producdts!!!



She also had some super awesome Christmas Coloring cards!!!! I loved playing with these, I love coloring. I used watercolor pencils and also alcohol markers. I tried several different types.











This was a layout that I did with the Cricut cartridge that was new for this Holiday Season. Lots of fun elements on this!
The next show is coming up on January 10th and we been working hard creating samples for this show. Can't wait to share more. Anna has lots of super awesome goodies coming in 2017!!!!
