Anna Griffin and Cricut!!!

On her July HSN show, Anna debuted her new Cricut cartridge, "Summer Soiree". It has the most gorgeous images on it. I wanted to share a few projects that I did with this one!!!

For this first layout I just cut a large doily from one of the sets! I used green cardstock from the Perfect Palatte collection, then cut the solid from the Carmen collection. Love the yellow, green and pink together!!! I also cut a solid from the light pink for the center area as a mat for the photo!

This was a fun project, I made a "Party Banner" from one of the doily patterns as well! I cut them smaller, folded them and decorated. I used small decorative clothespins and attached them to twine!!! I used a matching label from the set for the letter mats!

And last, I used one and made it as large as I could and made a die-cut background for the page!!! Kept it simple as far as embellishments for the contrast!!!!

This is just an awesome and very versatile cartridge! I used the new Cricut Explore but you can get an actual "cartridge" as well!!! Hope you liked the examples, go check out Anna's homepage or her Pinterest page to see more cool ideas with this cartridge!!!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Time for Anna Griffin!

During her last HSN showing Anna Griffin debuted some really cool new products, one of which was her "Well Said Vellum Quote Stickers". These stickers have a sentiment for any type of project that you are working on! Great for cards and scrapbook pages. And the colors will go with most anything!

Here is some of what I created with them.

This first page was done using the Chinoiserie collection. The paper and die cuts are from that collection. The title and sentiment are the stickers. The colors go perfectly together.

For this page I used some of the "Gabbie" collection. This is a totally different look and feel, but the sentiments were perfect!

This one used a mix of "Hope Chest" and "Olivia" papers and again the sentiments are absolutely perfect!

This one was done with the "Carmen" paper collection. The yellow pulled wonderfully from the sentiment stickers for this one too!!!

Just lots of sentiments and color combos to choose from with the awesome collection. You can find it at HSN by looking here!

I'll be back to share some more products that were shown during this presentation later in the week. And don't forget to tune in to HSN for her July show, there will be lots more new cool products available for you then!!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate it!!!

All products used can be found at HSN or Anna Griffin Inc.!

WeR Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board Fun

WeR Memory Keepers had a recent show on HSN and they featured their Flower Punch board. I had the chance to do some samples for the show and it was so easy and so much fun to use! I made flowers, straw decorations and cupcake decorations as well!!! All using the WeR Basics paper in fun colors and patterns!

Here are a few pics of what I made:

These are some of the flowers, I used buttons for centers, but they have little centers for them, I just wanted this color combo and didn't have them. So just used colored buttons!!!

 These are cupcake decorations, just put them on little wooden skewers! Printed the labels and cut into circles.

These were fun, just made the flowers and cut some petals off to make them "gather" more and punched holes in the center for straw to go through. Put a green cut out paper circle on bottom and a matching one on top to finish the bloom.

I even made a card with the scraps of the paper that I used. I made all the items with just a generic "Party" theme.


Here is the Punch Board:



and here is the paper pad:

These were so much fun, I hope you try out this fun punch board, and some of the other fun ones that WeR has as well!!!!

We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board & Inked Rose!!!

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is having a great week-end with beautiful weather! We are finally having sunshine here and I'm so happy to see it!!! WeR Memory Keepers was on HSN recently with all kinds of cool stuff, one of which is the Flower Punch Board. I had a layout shown and wanted to share it. I also had some other flowers shown as well as a bouquet that was even thrown to Andrew on air!!!! LOL!

Anyway, here is the layout that I created using one of the blooms and the beautiful "Inked Rose" collection that was also shown. This is our sweet little Kinsey Grace not long after she was born!



I made this bloom with the smallest size and just used 2 layers, the Pink Wash and Orange Wash. There is a little tool included that you use to curl the petals! I just layered them together and used a larger cream button with a smaller hot pink and topped with a pearl!


I cut out several butterflies from the paper and placed them on the layout as well.

Using cut out sections of the Fames paper worked well for placing cut out words from the paper too!

Using the flower punch board is super easy, there are easy to see marks and measurements for each size. Tells you what length and width you need for each one. You can layer them however you like, lots of layers or single and also several sizes. Here is a photo of the punch board.

Other Inked Rose products used:

 paper - Butterflies

Embossed Stickers

 paper - Floral

 paper - Frames

 paper - Pink Wash

paper - Orange Wash
 Wood Tag - Vintage frame

paper - Words

and you can find all of these HERE!

This is a super fun collection, and the flower punch board is amazing! I hope you feel inclined to try making some for yourself. And Inked Rose is great for cards and mini albums as well!!! Thanks so much for dropping by, I really appreciate it!

A Layout from WeR!!!

I have a layout to share today that I did using WeR Memory Keepers "Inked Rose" collection. There are some really fun patterns and colors in this collection. I used a sweet picture of Kinsey Grace for this one!


I used the "Hello" sentiment from the embossed stickers and put in on a frame I cut out from the frames patterned paper. I added a little gemstone to the center of the "e" and outlines the word with my pink Zig marker.

I used brads to attach my baker's twine to the strip of paper. I also cut out some butterflies from the patterned paper and folded them to use on the page.

I just tied the twine to the embossed tag to finish it off. This was a really quick and simple page, but I love the look of the background paper, the splattered dots look like I misted the paper!

New Card for WorldWin!!!

I did this card for WorldWin Papers in honor of Mother's Day! I wanted to show how beautifully the Petallics paper embosses.



I used a Couture Creations embossing folder, this one is "Exotic", the Petallics shows so crisp and clean when embossed! I used embellies and paper strips from the 3Birds Designs Graceful Season collection. I Love the colors!!!

Here you see the detail of the embossing!!! I love seeing how it looks when you get it out of the machine!!!!


This card was so simple and quick to make! I hope you try working with the Petallics line, there are many colors and it's a great paper!!!
