Anna Griffin Shares



Hello everyone,
First, I wanted to thank those of you who left such beautiful notes of sympathy for me.  I was truly touched and it really warmed my heart.  Thank you sincerely.
Today I am just sharing a few new projects featuring the gorgeous papers and embellishments from Anna Griffin. I recently tried out for her team and now that a designer has been selected, I thought I would share these designs with you as we head into the weekend. The photos have been used before, but I thought they were perfect for the tryout.
My first crafting techniques were the ones I learned from Anna Griffin. All of the paper pleating, fussy cutting and fan folds that I do are a result of her gorgeous crafting style.
Here I have approximately 9 layers of paper, pleats, flowers, die cuts and lace.  This was a fun layout to work on. 
Here I used one of my favorite Crafter’s Workshop templates to create a decorative frame.  One of the staples in my craft arsenal is a pair of scallop edge scissors.  I used them to add detail to the inside of my frame. 
This card was made using one of her many beautiful card making kits.  I have three of her kits and I mix and match the pieces together as well as add embellishments from my stash.  The  jeweled button is from Teresa Collins.  I just had to add a bit of sparkle.

Here is my last project...a happy birthday card.  This was also created using the card kit with 3D floral stickers.

Robin, I am a bonafide Anna Griffin addict, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE coming to your blog to check out your latest Anna creations! I don't visit many blogs, but I have long considered yours a can't miss!

Robin, the blinged-out card is beyond fabulous! I'm also curious about how you managed to pull off that scalloped edge on the inside of the frame on your "Sweet" layout - all those tricky angles and curves with a pair of scalloped scissors could not have been easy, but the effect is SMASHING!

Thank you for sharing your work - I enjoy the heck outta it! :)
