Anniversary Card with Anna Griffin and Cricut

Today I am sharing a special card I made with Anna Griffin paper, embellishements and sentiment.   See below for more detail on the Anna items.  The heart is a Cricut Love Struck file, because I don't have Anna's Heart dies yet!

The Gift of Google Slides and Scrapbook Pages

For many this year, the idea of spending money buying gifts or shipping gifts seemed uncessary.  My family circle discussed sharing something and would cost us nothing, like a song, or a memory.  It occured to me after Christmas, as I put away our Christmas Scrapbooks that I could use Google Slides to share the albums I made of all our family Christmas Cards over the years.  I am creating a slide presentation for each sibling who sent me photo Christmas Cards over the years.  You can see my scrapbooking style has evolved and grown over the years.  If you've scrapbooked some special memories, maybe you want to share them too!

I Miss You Card

Here is the perfect card for your Mom, a sister or a girlfriend to send in this pandemic!  I can't get over the figures in the Anna Griffin paper and how perfect they match this card need in my life!  I am a little obsessed with toile fabric and had to have the Anna Griffin Toile paper!  So, this week, while trying to use some of my blue paper scraps, I pulled out my Cricut and Anna's Toile paper, along with  sparkling paper in the blue die cut and the dew drops from the Robin's Nest.  I believe the sentiment is Club Scrap, but is has been in the stash so long, I am unsure.

More Bells with Anna Griffin and Cricut

Happy New Year!  I was so happy with the jingle bells page I made with Anna's Christmas Card Embellishments cartridge, that I thought I might try the other bells cut on the cartridge.  So here is the page I made with the big bells.  I added a circle cut at 8 inches and slipped it in and around the bells.  To do so, I made one snip in the circle and threaded it through the bells cut, then glued it back together and hid the seam behind the bell cut.  The glitter paper and metallic red paper are also Anna Griffin and I used white, grey and red card stock too.  The holly is also AG!

A Gentlemens' Study Christmas

I love the Anna Griffin Gentlemens' Study paper and thought it would be perfect for a Christmas page!  I used Anna's border stickers and an old Anna Griffin journaling die cut.  I made a 2020 circle and cut it with the Cricut and placed it on top of Anna's journaling die.  I was inspired to add the black by the paisley in Anna's paper and love the pop it gives to the border sticker!  The red and gold doily is Little Yellow Bicycle and has been in my stash for a long time!

Christmas Bells Page with Anna Griffin and Cricut

I have had the Anna's Christmas Cards and Embellishments Cartridge for awhile, but am just getting around to using it and I can't get over how beautiful this page looks!  I used all Anna Griffin paper except for the grey and white card stock.  The French Horn is Stampin' Up, the Flute is Creative Embellishements.  The rosette and printed dies are also Anna Griffin.  I used some scrap ribbon to matt the photo as my ribbon stash is out growning it's storage.  
I am going to enter this in the BittenByTheBug Challenge from December 7, 2020.  I managed to include the Thing 1 and Thing 2 Challenge, and maybe Thing 3.  I was confused by Thing 3.

My Own Paper Project Runway with Anna Griffin

I am posting another of my paper dresses made to fit a Barbie size mannequin.  This one is made with Anna Griffin's Fan dies. The photo above and below are of the front view.

 I scored the top layer of the skirt, and trimmed it at the top, to make it fit the dress form.  The top layer is made with 3 fans.  The bottom layer is made with 4 fan layers.  I added some iridescent sequin flowers, pink pearls, and iridescent round sequins.  A rolled paper rose, a bit of ribbon, and a stamped white flower.  For the base skirt I used Anna's Scoring Wheel Tricks Cricut Cartridge.  I removed the scoring lines from the cut circle and used a 12 x 12 piece of paper.  I hand cut the white paper lining to the front and back bodice lining.  I used some liquid glue and my glue gun on this project.  Below is the back view.
