Time for some new Anna Griffin!!!

Anna had an amazing show last week on HSN and I wanted to share some of the projects that I created for it. First up is the beautiful 12" Trimmings dies. These dies are 12" long and are such gorgeous patterns! These are the first 12" trimming dies and they are so much fun!

Here are the layouts that I did with these beautiful dies!

Next are the Artfully Said Vellum Quote Stickers. There are stickers in this set for everything and the colors are beautiful, and some even have the popular chalkboard look!

These are the Fretworks II dies. The first Fretworks set was wonderful, but these are even more amazing!!!

Last but not least is the new Seafarer Collection. This is perfect for any beach and Summer activity that you might have. There are red, white and blue, but also some pinks, so it is pretty versatile. And the die cuts and embellishments are so much fun!!! There is some gold in here for extra zing!

I hope you got some of these goodies during the shows, if not, some are still in stock. If not check back later! And Anna has more shows coming up this month and next month on HSN!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge

Welcome to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous May 2016 Blog Hop! 

This is my first month with the challenge,  and you should have arrived here from Debbie Seyer's blog! I dug into some of my Prima goodies and came up with these two cards. These were made using some of the Box flowers. The blooms, leaves and sentiments are in the same box! I used scraps of different Paper and some miscellaneous blooms for a quick project!

I used blue accents for the first card. Since the blooms and leaves are craft colored I chose to match accents with some of the new Prima Gypsy Cord. Then I just dug around and found some matching miscellaneous smaller blooms and used a matching chalk edger!

Here you see how the cord, small bloom and chalk edger just tie everything together with the patterned paper. I had to add a little wooden accent as well!!!

 For this one I used purple, which is my favorite color!!! And again just matched up the other accents!

Here again you can see the chalk edger on the tag and how it ties all of the elements together. These were so much fun!

Next on the list is Teresa Horner's blog. Make sure to check out all of the great projects this month!! And thanks so much for stopping by and hopping along with us!!! If you get lost along the way you can find your way by checking Gloria Stengel's blog!!!
