Xyron & All New Anna Griffin

Welcome to day four of the 
product swap day!  And we're really excited to show-off some of
the brand new, never before seen Anna Griffin goodies :)
**You will be able to see all of the new goods on Monday, March 24th**
 Just tune in (or set your DVR) to the HSN channel for the 24 hour craft day!

This pretty "Happy Birthday" card combines several different journaling tags and
gorgeous 6X6 papers.  I borrowed some Petaloo flowers from my stash.

I cut a small square from one of the 6X6 papers and embellished the edge with
a pretty lace trim from May Arts.  I added strips of Xyron Double-Sided 
High Tack adhesive around the back and pressed the lace into place.

I'm crazy about the new die-cuts packs in the "For The Boys" Collection.
As you visit the Xyron Design Team blogs over the week, you'll see all sorts
of die-cuts that have been used...vintage cars, fish, labels, trophies and more
handsome ephemera.

Whether you have the 1.5" Sticker Maker or larger, it is perfect to pair
with all of the die-cuts! 

  I like adding buttons to a lot of my projects, but I don't
always like to fuss with hand-stitching them into place.  For the masculine card, I
decided to add the buttons without stitching and instead used the Xyron High Tack
Adhesive Dots...this stuff STICKS!
For both cards, I used the Xyron Double-Sided High Tack Tape for adhering the
card base to the card fronts.

There are two more places to visit today...up next is Angela Holt's Blog!
And don't forget to stop by and say HELLO to Beth...she'll also be found on
HSN during the 24 hour Craft Day!


  1. LOVE both of your cards but the Happy Birthday card is absolutely STUNNING! TFS!

  2. Fabulous cards!!! They're so very beautiful!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
