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 Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
