Time for some new Anna Griffin!!!

Anna had an amazing show last week on HSN and I wanted to share some of the projects that I created for it. First up is the beautiful 12" Trimmings dies. These dies are 12" long and are such gorgeous patterns! These are the first 12" trimming dies and they are so much fun!

Here are the layouts that I did with these beautiful dies!

Next are the Artfully Said Vellum Quote Stickers. There are stickers in this set for everything and the colors are beautiful, and some even have the popular chalkboard look!

These are the Fretworks II dies. The first Fretworks set was wonderful, but these are even more amazing!!!

Last but not least is the new Seafarer Collection. This is perfect for any beach and Summer activity that you might have. There are red, white and blue, but also some pinks, so it is pretty versatile. And the die cuts and embellishments are so much fun!!! There is some gold in here for extra zing!

I hope you got some of these goodies during the shows, if not, some are still in stock. If not check back later! And Anna has more shows coming up this month and next month on HSN!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge

Welcome to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous May 2016 Blog Hop! 

This is my first month with the challenge,  and you should have arrived here from Debbie Seyer's blog! I dug into some of my Prima goodies and came up with these two cards. These were made using some of the Box flowers. The blooms, leaves and sentiments are in the same box! I used scraps of different Paper and some miscellaneous blooms for a quick project!

I used blue accents for the first card. Since the blooms and leaves are craft colored I chose to match accents with some of the new Prima Gypsy Cord. Then I just dug around and found some matching miscellaneous smaller blooms and used a matching chalk edger!

Here you see how the cord, small bloom and chalk edger just tie everything together with the patterned paper. I had to add a little wooden accent as well!!!

 For this one I used purple, which is my favorite color!!! And again just matched up the other accents!

Here again you can see the chalk edger on the tag and how it ties all of the elements together. These were so much fun!

Next on the list is Teresa Horner's blog. Make sure to check out all of the great projects this month!! And thanks so much for stopping by and hopping along with us!!! If you get lost along the way you can find your way by checking Gloria Stengel's blog!!!

Watercolor Fun!!!

I absolutely LOVE coloring! I have loved it since I was little. It has always been one of my favorite things to do, and it is so calming!!! I did these pages for Prima for the CHA booth using the new Watercolor Pad and watercolor pencils. So much fun!!!

On this one I used several colors of green and blue for the leaves, mixed the colors on the fonts, and added a few blooms!!!

This one I chose to use really pastel and light shades! I added just a few sequins here and there!11

This one was fun! I especially liked the little birds on this one! Such cute images in this pad!!!

Just another fun page, the phrases are wonderful that are in this little pad, and you can make the colors as light or as vibrant as you like, it's up to you!!!

I want to share some of my projects that were in the booth. I'm starting with a layout with the new "Tales of You & Me" collection. This is one of the prettiest collections ever! This photo is our dd's good friend on her wedding day and I love this sweet picture of her and her son!!!

Here you can see some of the lucious blooms, and I also used the Ink N Layer stamps for the leaves!

The little alphas are from the Collection kit and the butterfly is one of the gorgeous wood icons.

Prima November Challenges!!!

Hello! I hope everyone is having a beautiful Fall, the Season's are changing and with it comes some new challenges from Prima. You can find Prima's November BAP and PPP Challenges here! We would love for you to participate and share what you create with us!

I worked on the new BAP (Build A Page) challenge for the month. Here is the sketch and my interpretation.

This is a picture of my sweet niece on her wedding day! I chose a pretty pastel color palette to match the photo. I used Garden Fable papers and used the Rock Moss chalk edger. I also used beautiful flowers and leaves from the Garden Fable collection as well.
 I used some foam dots under the photo for some addd dimension on the page.

This page was a little more streamlined than usual for me, but the sketch just inspired me to follow it pretty closely. I did flip it, but still basically followed the design. This is a wonderful sketch by the talented Riikka  Kovasin!

Products Used:
Prima Products:  Garden Fable A4 paper pad 847333, Chalk Edger, Rock Moss 891305, Garden Fable flowers Biennial 580773, Garden Fable flowers Herbage 580759, Alpha blends, Something Blue Flair Buttons 572709

There is also a new PPP (Prima Product Pick) for November too, here is the inspiration!

This first layout uses lots of goodies from the Endora collection, so many fun embellishments in this great collection!

This uses of of the beautiful diecut papers from the Endora collection, it's glittered!!! So pretty!!!

A little paper quilting with Endora! A little fussy cutting of the paper with the spider webs too!

This one uses lots of the pretty die-cuts in the collection! And the doily patterned paper making a large rosette!

One of my favorites! Lots of pretty paper from Endora mixed with the new glitter paper cut with the Cricut Holiday content from Anna!

More Cricut goodness for this one!

More glitter paper and the Halloween dies!

A couple of cards as well!

 Just love the purple glitter paper!!!!! Love orange and purple!!!

Dressing it up a little! Some non traditional Halloween colors for this one! These spiders looked so real it was hard for me to peel them from the Cricut mat! LOL!

Glitter pumpkins for this one!

I absolutely LOVE Anna's Halloween collections, they are always so pretty and versatile and have so many embellishments to choose from! Lots of fun creating!!!!
