Anna Griffin New Cricut Content!!!!

Today I want to share some projects I did for Anna's latest HSN appearance. These are using her new Cricut content "Anna's Christmas Cards & Embellishments". These images are absolutely gorgeous. And when you pair them with some of the pretty Glitter paper it makes amazing and sparkly Christmas projects!

First are a couple of layouts. The background die-cut mats, the holly and poinsettas and even the sentiment are all from the content.

This is another layout. The die-cut mat and pretty pine cone embellishments are also from the content.

For this one, I did a card to match the layout to show the versatility of the images, and the different sizes you can make them.
One last layout, I loved how the pink with the red turned out! The background die-cut, the holly leaves and ornaments are all from the content.

I also did a card to match this one!!!

I hope you check out this new cartridge and content. And check out all the other new Anna Griffin products on HSN. And don't forget she has more shows on HSN coming up in October! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!

Prima Palette Markers Versatility

Today I want to share a  project using Prima's Palette Markers. I have used them in several different ways for this. I love the vibrant colors you get with these markers. This is a layout that I did with a photo of our sweet little Granddaughter. I wanted to keep the colors lighter. I used the Palette Markers on the stamped bird and flowers and also on the diamond strip of paper.

I mixed Golden Chalk Board paint with Light Texture Paste and applied it to the stencil on the background paper. Using the light green, yellow and blue markers I made the diamond patterned stip of paper.

I used Royal Menagerie papers, blooms and embellishments on this page, the colors are so pretty and I love the blue and yellow together. I used foam dots under the little berries and colored blooms.

Here you can see a close-up of the bird. I used the light colors of blue, green and yellow on the bird, along with the orange from the Auburn collection for hte beak and feet!

The Royal Menagerie flowers are all so pretty, I love them all, and I colored the stamped images to match as closely as I could.

Here are a few more close-ups.

I loved working with these markers. I have used them before with the little Julie Nutting doll stamps, but they really do work for lots of things!!! I will be using them a lot more in the future!

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