Anna Griffin Halloween!!!

Today I want to share some Halloween projects that I did for Anna's previous HSN appearances featuring some of her awesome Halloween goodies!!! Her Endora collection, lots of Cricut goodies, glitter paper and more!!!

This first layout uses lots of goodies from the Endora collection, so many fun embellishments in this great collection!

This uses of of the beautiful diecut papers from the Endora collection, it's glittered!!! So pretty!!!

A little paper quilting with Endora! A little fussy cutting of the paper with the spider webs too!

This one uses lots of the pretty die-cuts in the collection! And the doily patterned paper making a large rosette!

One of my favorites! Lots of pretty paper from Endora mixed with the new glitter paper cut with the Cricut Holiday content from Anna!

More Cricut goodness for this one!

More glitter paper and the Halloween dies!

A couple of cards as well!

 Just love the purple glitter paper!!!!! Love orange and purple!!!

Dressing it up a little! Some non traditional Halloween colors for this one! These spiders looked so real it was hard for me to peel them from the Cricut mat! LOL!

Glitter pumpkins for this one!

I absolutely LOVE Anna's Halloween collections, they are always so pretty and versatile and have so many embellishments to choose from! Lots of fun creating!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by, you can get most of Anna's products at HSN and Scrapbook.com!

Prima Blog Hop!!!

It's Prima Day! A day filled with TONS of inspiration just for you! So grab your paper, flowers, and glue and have some fun with us as we travel around the world. Our very talented design team members are showcasing newly created projects on their social media, so join the fun, hop around, and be inspired! I will be giving away a small Prima Prize from my stash to a random winner, to be eligible, leave a comment below!

Here is my project!

I made a card "Be Happy". I used one of the gorgeous Relic & Artifacts cast. I added some blooms, some stamp cutout berries and a ribbon!

I used the Prima Palette markers to color the cast. I love the way the markers show the strokes, it looks like some type of natural stone!!!! I used blues and greens and a gorgeous coral for the heart!

Here are a few more close-ups where you can see more detail!

Prima's October BAP!!!

October's sketch, by the one and only Riikka Kovasin, is completely amazing with a triple photo spot, condensed journaling lines, a wonderfully lowered title, and a fantastic media-filled backdrop! Our designers on both teams: Design Team and Educators LOVED it so much! here are a few samples for you to get your mojo going!

Here is my take on the challenge for this month. Please check the Prima blog to see what the rest of the DT did with the sketch too! 

This is a page of our precious Granddaughter at 6 months. I used lots of Royal Menagerie products for this page. I followed the sketch almost exactly just changing a few things, I put the title over the photos and kept the rest pretty much the same.  I used the oil pastel crayons (pink) to draw circles. Then blended with a waterbrush. I added a few “splats” also! I misted the background with the Frost and Boysenberry Color Bloom sprays. I just added some blooms and sequins. I also stamped a solid cardstock around the edges to use as my background paper. A really simple page to complete!

We would LOVE to see what you create with this month's PPP or BAP! You have until October 31st to enter your Prima project! There are only three rules:
1. The project must be Prima-based. 2. The deadline is October 31st at 23:55 ET. 3. You must have FUN creating it! Ready! Set! Go!
