WOW!!! Anna Griffin's HSN Show was AWESOME!

Did you see it? Did you see the new Cricut "Winter Wonderland" cartridge? And all of the other fabulous goodies she had on all day? That Holiday Trimmings Card kit was just FULL of stuff, the biggest she's ever offered!!! There are still lots of items online at HSN, even though she had a lot of sell-outs!!!

I thought I would share a few of my pages from the show. This first one shows one of the flourish images and the title "Believe" as well. I added some stickles to the little holly berries. Also used pop dots for some dimension.

This one shows a couple of the many snowflakes. I love the snowflakes on the cartridge, there are so many and they are so delicate! 

This one is one of the Holly images. Again, a few stickles for a little sparkle!!!

This is one of the other snowflake patterns, and I used one of the AG embossing folders on this page too!

This is another one of the Holly images, I just made a wreath on the page with lots of the same image!

And last, this one is some of the ornaments, there are some stunning ornament images on this! I used some liquid pearl and stickles along with pop dots to make them look more real!  The title is also one of the images!!! So many things to dress up your Holiday pages!

There are like 50 images on this cartridge. There are so many possibilities for your holiday crafting with this. Your cards, scrapbook pages, home decor.......your imagination is your limit!!!!

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

Beautiful Fall Colors!!!

As much as I LOVE Summer, the crisp cool is starting to be felt in the air signaling the approach of Fall. So, I thought I would do a card with a little bit of both!!!! The Craft-Dee-Bowz tool makes doing multiple loop bows so easy! My paper has some Summer colors and pattern, but the ribbon and sentiment tag pick up the colors of Fall!

We got a beautiful assortment of ribbon this month, orange, yellow and green. I wrapped a piece of the orange that was slightly gathered on the left edge of the card. I then made a three loop bow with the orange and yellow. Then I made a three loop with the green and placed it on top. I added a tiny rose and stick pin for a finishing touch!

You can use your Craft-Dee-Bowz tool and go to your scrap paper and make tons of combinations of cards with left-overs and just ribbon!!!! Let your creativity do what it wants!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Green Tara Lovliness!!!

I am so in love with Green Tara blooms. And the gorgeous trims also! You can choose any color combo for your project and find tons of goodies to match whatever you are doing!!! This month I've created several items with different color combinations.

First I have a layout using blue and yellow. I love these colors together. This is a photo of my gorgeous niece walking on the beach. I loved this pic, looked like a magazine shot to me so I had to scrap it! I wanted to keep a beachy look so I chose my elements accordingly.

I used Fancy Pants Park Bench for this layout! Love the colors!!! All of the embellies other than the blooms and ribbon which are Green Tara are Fancy Pants Park Bench collection!

Next is a purple page! Purple is my favorite color, and this photo of our adorable new Granddaughter just happened to have purple in it!!! I choose lots of goodies to match this one! The papers for this are Graphic45 Secret Garden, one of my all time favs!

Last, I have one more layout with our precious Kinsey Grace! She is just perfect and I absolutely love scrapping her sweet little self!!! I hope you don't get tired of seeing her! The papers here are from 3Birds Estate Taylored Recollections collection.

So, you can see the beautiful blooms in these color combos and all the choices are too many to count! I love picking my blooms and trims for pages with all the Green Tara goodness! Thanks so much for looking and I hope you like my projects!
