Pretty Patterns from Anna Griffin

Hello friends. Today I am sharing some of my cards I created using Anna's Pretty Patterns cardstock collection. This collection has both A7 and A2 card bases and layers you can mix and match with your Foil Flourishes, 3D embellishments and sentiments. 

Here's a few samples to help you get going on creating some cards of your own.

I layered a border behind this cardbase and it really creates a layered look. 

Make sure to use your dies and bows to help add excitement to your cards.

Have a creative day!

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Hello friends. I'm posting my take on this week's My Favorite Things

Here's a look at this week's sketch.

Here's what I created using the Pure Innocence Clowning Around image.

Supplies; My Favorite Things: Balloon Strings background, Birthday Centerpiece die, PI Clowning Around. Cardstock: Summer Splash and Sour Apple. Misc: Sprinkle and Sparkle Aqua Shimmer embossing powder. Sequins Adhesive: Therm-O-Web Sticky Strip Runner3D Foam Squares Combo pack.

Thanks for visiting!


More Card Design entries

Friday, September 11, 2015

I'm sharing a couple more cards I created My Favorite Things has a fun contest going on now thru Sept. 18th. If you'd like to create for this fun contest click the banner for more info.

Sunny Smiles

For this card I wanted to use the negative from the die I cut for my MFTWSC Card #244. I thought it would be fun to create a scene inside the frame. I used LLD Flamingos and the flowers from Polynesian Paradise.

Happy Birthday

I love the Pure Innocence collection. I love making cards with these sweet little images. I always color the hair brown like my daughter Lily's hair. 
This sweet image was perfect for the Happy Birthday die.
I also used the scallop border die and some glitter washi tape from Eyelet Outlet.

Thanks for stopping by!


Halloween creations with Anna Griffin's Endora collection

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

 Halloween is my favorite time of year! For me it's the official kick off of the holiday season.
I love checking out the Halloween collections from some of my favorite designers.
Anna Griffin debuted her new Halloween collection Endora on HSN back in July.
The collection is loaded with lots of fun stickers, die cuts and fun patterned papers.

Here's a look at some cards I created with this beautiful collection!

These cards were so fun to create. In addition to the Endora collection I also used Anna's glitter cardstock.

Are you getting started on your Halloween cards or have you already finished?

Thanks for stopping by!

This City girl is going South

Saturday, September 5, 2015

I am so excited to be sharing that I'm leaving Los Angeles and heading to Georgia this November!

That's right friends, this city girl is heading to the South. I can't wait for my first ever visit to Atlanta to teach at Anna Griffin's first ever Create event.

There are a handful of tickets still available and you can find out more information on this amazing weekend here.

I am so looking forward to meeting all of Anna's Griffinites! The Griffinites are a lovely group of ladies that are dedicated Anna Griffin fans. I believe it was Grama Pei who coined the term Griffinites. I've heard her call into HSN a few times to speak to Anna and I'm looking forward to meeting her and the rest of Anna's fans.

It's going to be an amazing weekend.

MFT Sketch 244

Friday, September 4, 2015

Hello! Thank goodness it's Friday right? I sure am glad school is back in session. It's given me a little more free time to create with my MFT goodies for my favorite weekly sketch challenge.

Here's a look at this week's My Favorite Things Sketch

Here's my card. 

I know...I am totally stuck in paradise. 

What can I say, I am trying to live the Aloha life as long as I can. But seriously I thought this sentiment from the Tickled Pink set was perfect for the Precious Polaroids.  I am really loving the wave background stamp stamped in Tropical teal and misted with teal Color Shine. I love the way it turned out.

Next up is a card I made for the Card Design Superstar call. If you haven't heard about the challenge yet, click the image to find out more!

I love Halloween! I'm getting all of my decor out this weekend in preparation. I haven't been able to create with the Pure Innocence Mummy stamp yet. It's pretty darn cute! I paired it with the Spooky Window die and created a nice sunset with distress inks. The background stamp is the cheesecloth design.

Adhesive: Therm-O-Web Sticky Strip Runner3D Foam Squares Combo pack.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
