Anna Griffin Chrysanthemum Card

I have made several cards over the past month or two that I haven't posted yet.  Some that I don't have anymore but I have a photo.  This is one of those.  It is a file in Cricut Design Space.  These files make it so easy to make a card.  Design Space takes the file and creates layers for the different pieces.  You don't even have to think about that part of it.  All you have to do is gather the paper you're going to use.  I love it.
This file can be found here.   I embossed the background and frame with Anna Griffin Cuttlebug Folders.  The petals of the flowers are pop dotted to give them dimension and make them look like chysanthemums.  I added a gold foil flourish, ribbon and an AG setiment.  I think this is one of the prettiest cards I've ever made.

Anna Griffin Elegant Edges Card

Have you made any of the Make It Now projects in Cricut Design Space?  I am going to be sharing some cards over the next few days that I made using these files.  Some I made exactly by the file but added and additional touch to make it my own.  

The file I used is here.   You have to have Design Space to pull it up.  I added an Anna Griffin Beautiful Bouqets Floral Die Cut and Sentiment to it.  I hope the person who will receive this will find encouragement from it.

Thanks for visiting today.  We love our followers.  God Bless You!!! Peggy

Make It Crafty CAS Card


 I have been leaning more and more to Clean and Simple cards.  Now don't get me wrong, I still love my froo froo, as Donna calls it.  When I saw that Make It Crafty was having a Design Team call for CAS, I jumped at the chance.  This is my card I'm submitting.

Card Recipe:
5X7 Card Base
Background Paper - AC Specialty Paper - Damask
Images - Make It Crafty Roses of Love and Happy Daisies from the MIC Beautiful Flowers Digistamp Collection
Colored with Promarkers
I added Wink of Stella to the edges of the flowers to give them a glittery look.

Thank you for stopping by today.  You may want to enter the DT call also.  Click on the banner at the top of the page.  God Bless You!!! Peggy

Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments Card

It has been so long since I've posted anything on the blog, I've almost forgotten how.  I have been making things, just not posting so I've got some catching up to do.  

I puchased the new Anna Griffin cartridges that came with the new Cricut Explore Air.  I don't have the Explore Air but with the Cricut Bluetooth Adapter and the original Explore, mine operates the same as the Air, wirelessly.  

I used an image from Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments cartridge to make this card.  The central image is one that is created to be drawn with the Explore.  I drew it, then colored it with Promarkers.  If you like flourishes, flowers, cards this is one cartridge you will want.  There are several images that can just be drawn plus sentiments you can add to your cards.

After I colored the image, I scanned it, then uploaded it into Cricut Design Space and created a print then cut file.  The background is embossed with an AG Garden Embossing Folder.  The corners are from AG Foil Flourishes.  The larger flower embellishment is from Anna Griffin's Pop-Up Card Kit.  Do you think I like Anna Griffin products?  LOL

I hope we will have enough traffic to warrant keeping the blog open.  Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you will leave us some love.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy

Paper A La Mode Challenge - Use Your Favorite Color Combination

We haven't posted in a while.  It hasn't been because we haven't been busy because we have.  We will be posting some later, I promise.

Today is the Paper A La Mode Challenge at The Outlawz.  Our theme is Use Your Favorite Color Combination.  The sponsor is Squigglefly.  I know you will find something in their shop that you will like.  The image I chose for my project is called Three Stockings Waiting.  I wanted to make something besides a card.  I got an email from Splitcoast Stampers this week showing how to make a Star Box.  So I decided that would be fun to make.

Project Supplies:
Star Box - tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers
KandCo. Designer Christmas Paper
Image - Three Stockings Waiting by Squigglefly
Embellishments from my stash
Promarkers used to color image:
Fireplace - Burgundy, Crimson
Stockings - Forest Green, Holly
Candles - Red, Berry Red
Holly - Leaf Green, Holly, Poppy
Candle Holders - Gold Glitter Pen
Pine Cones - Cocoa
Pine Needles - Pine
Wall - Almond Putty

I really appreciate those of you who continue to follow us.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will join us for this week's challenge.  

Another thing I would like to tell you about.  We've also started a Freebie/Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz.  This is a monthly challenge starting on the first day of each month.  We started Dec. 1.  Check it out here.

I hope you will have a great weekend.  Don't forget to worship in the place of your choice.  God Bless you!!!!! Peggy.
