Anna Griffin on HSN today!!!

Anna Griffin had a couple of shows on today on HSN with some awesome products! I'm going to share a few of my projects that were featured today and show you the products. If you are interested you can see the videos and check out the products in detail at

This first layout uses the new Anna Griffin 6x6 bouquet of cardstock. I just used 2 patterns and cut them into squares for this one. (I apologize for the quality of these pictures, I meant to take more before I shipped the projects and forgot.)

This page features the Anna Griffin 3-D Banner embellishment kit. Lots of pretty banners and pieces to choose from in this kit!

These next two pages are done with the new Anna Griffin Botanical Engraving cardstock kit.

The next 2 feature Anna's new paper bows! There are so cute, and you get a bunch of them!!!

 And last, one of my all time favorites, the Camilla paper crafting kit. These papers and embellishments are just absolutely gorgeous!!!

HSN has lots of Anna Griffin stuff, if you love it like I do, and they have a special today also!!! If you like her stuff I urge you to go check it out!

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

CHA projects to share

I was lucky enough to have quite a few projects featured at Summer CHA in Chicago this year, and today is the last day of the show. I figured I would start sharing some of my projects. Here is one from each mfg. that I had stuff for!

First is a card for Suzy West and WOW Embossing, this card features her lucious embossing powders and also her clear stamps! Her powders and stamps are so easy to work with, and you get such a crisp image with the stamps! This is just one of the cards that I did.

Next is a little tiny birdhouse that I used the new Kaisercraft "Turtle Dove" Christmas collection on. These papers are so vintagy and beautiful. I have more projects to share with it later too!!

Here is one for WorldWin Papers, I used their ColorMates, Treasures, PaperLayerz and Cut Mates on this one!

I'll be back to share more and give more details!!! Just a quick peek to share with you. In the above layout I used the WorldWin vellum and printed "cowgirl up" in different fonts and colors on it for the background!

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Team "B" Reveal at Once Upon A Sketch

I's time for the reveal for this month's challenge from "Team B" over at OnceUponASketch blog. There are some beautiful creations by this part of the team, and still plenty of time to enter for some awesome prizes! You can find all the information here: Team B Reveal

Here is my take on the challenge, I'm in "Team B". This challenge is based on "friends" and this is my dh, he's my very best friend! I used the gorgeous BoBunny Weekend Market collection here and all the products came from a previous Swirlydoos kit!!!

I absolutely love the colors in this collection!!! They are so rich and perfect for a guy page! I love these blooms with the little dangles!!! I embossed the clock with WOW Embossing powder in Pale Gold.

Here are a couple more closeups of some of the detail!!! I hope you check out the challenge and join us, we'd love to see you!!!

RRR Blog Hop Time!!!!!

It's that time again! Time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. This month we're teaming up with CardMaker. We're also featuring Scor-Pal products! I know you will enjoy seeing all the inspiration this month, so please join us for the Hop!!!

The Hop starts at the CardMaker blog here:

You should have arrived here from Heidi's blog .

Here is the GORGEOUS ribbon assortment for the Ribbon Club:

And here is my project. This is a page of my cousins daughter at the beach. I used several varieties from the assortment. I loved the green star ribbon, it really suited the beach theme! And the colors are beautiful!!!

Here you can see where I used the Scor-Buddy on the stars, making them dimensional. I added ink in matching colors!
 This is another closeup that shows how I shredded the green block ribbon and used it as a base for my cluster of stars.
 This just shows the smaller bow from the super cute star ribbon! I also inked behind the pieces of pattern paper and used my Zig markers for my faux stitching!

I hope you liked my project. Now you're on to your next stop which is the wonderfully talented Misty's blog:

Thanks so much for hopping along with us, we hope you enjoy your trip!!!
