Favorite Cards of 2012

I thought I would do something different! I usually do layouts, with the occasional card, mini book or altered item. I thought I would share my favorite cards from 2012. I would appreciate any feedback!!! I have used products from several mfgs. on these projects. All cardstock is from WorldWin Papers. Others are listed for each card.

This one is probably my favorite! I used the beautiful bee ribbon from ReallyReasonableRibbon, the baker's twine also. And also my Zig Writer pens for the "faux" stitching.

This was a really simple one, the Baker's Twine again is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This one uses Graphic45 Tropical Travelogue paper, stamps and embossing powder from Suzy West' WOW collection and ribbon, lace trim and Baker's Twine from ReallyReasonableRibbon. Also used my Zig Writer pens.

This is one done with ribbon from ReallyReasonableRibbon and lace trim, and Anna Griffin, Inc. papers and embellishment. Sentiment sticker and border punch also Anna Griffin.

Another simple card using ribbon from ReallyReasonableRibbon. Paper from Echo Park Paper. Pens from Zig.

Purple!!!! Used Spellbinders dies, stamps and embossing powders from WOW, pens from Zig and ribbon and twine from ReallyReasonableRibbon.

This is another favorite. I used my Zig pens, stamps and powders from WOW.

Another one with Suzy West's gorgeous stamps and powders! Also used Spelbinders dies. Paper is My Mind's Eye.

Suzy West gorgeous butterfly stamps and powders. Websters Pages papers and Zig pens!

I used the WOW powders on the metal word "Happy" and the pink edges of the paper! And the leaves also are embossed! The bloom is a Petaloo bloom.

Suzy West stamp set and embossing powder for this one too!!!

This one too, Suzy West WOW embossing powders and stamp set!

These are a few of my favorites, and I've used Suzy West WOW stamps and embossing powders, ribbon and trims from ReallyReasonable Ribbon, pens for Kuretake Zig and dies from Spellbinders. All solid cardstock is from WorldWin Papers.

More Anna Griffin Christmas

Today I'm going to share another beautiful product that Anna Griffin has for Christmas. Pleating papers add dimension to any layout or card and AG has a kit with different length pleating strips. All beautiful Christmas patterned papers! I'm going to share a few layouts that I did with them.

This first one is a picture of our sweet "Speckles"! She always loved Christmas, she opened gifts and loved looking at them under the tree! In this picture she was pouting just like a child!!! You can see the different patterns in these gorgeous papers!

This one shows the metallic strips in the kit! They have a real festive look to them!

This is our dd with the Grinch!! Love the different colors and patterns and they go with all of Anna's other Christmas papers too!

Anna Griffin Christmas

I wanted to share some Christmas projects that I did for Anna Griffin's Christmas shows. She has some of the most gorgeous items for the Holidays! I'm sharing just a few, I will share more in the next couple of weeks to stay in the Christmas mood!!!

First is a page that I did with the Christmas Classic cardstock. I cut different size circle for a wreath border. This is a picture of our boys when they were little! 

This one was done with the same paper collection. So many pretty patterns and colors in this collection. And they are traditional Christmas colors but have other colors mixed in as well! Suitable for any project!

This one features the 3-D sentiment stickers. This is our oldest with Santa! I love the way you can make elegant or fun pages with these!

 You can find these and more Christmas products from Anna at HSN. And check back in January for some very new and exciting things from Anna on HSN!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Here is my project, and I loved doing this one!!! This is my cousin and her daughter playing in her first snow! I love the colors in this line!

I embossed some old metal snowflakes with Suzy West WOW bright opaque white embossing powder and added a blue gem to the center! Layered some little paper banners and blooms in the corner. If you look at the finished page you can see that I cut the ice cube paper out to a different shape for my photo matt.
