Mary Beth said, “An exercise in using what I have!!”
Michele shared, “I needed to make a few cards this week and I decided to use some of the Floral Card Stock from CAH2. I think because the bright flowers always drew my eye, I just noticed the black lace entwined with the flowers. I decided to try and enhance this my using the black metallic card stock with the lace impression dies and a bright pink shadow layer.”
Tina posted, “This Sunday I combined the 3D Rococo Die with the Oblong 3D Concentric Layer Dies. Loving the dark paper! This card is for a very dear friend!”
Such a pretty card!
Belinda wrote, “I learned how to make this card at CREATE 4. I still love making it!”
Mary posted, “This Carousel Easel card is a birthday card for a sweet girl who is all about pink and horses.”
This is a beautiful combination of colors and patterns!
Shellie said, “Darling Carte Noel cards, Anna, (and, I’m looking forward making a few soon, also)! Today, as much as I would like to bake my friend a pineapple upside-down cake for her birthday, I have created a ‘Charlotte’ Pineapple-Rococo card, instead! And, that’s a whole lot easier to send across the miles. (Still, the baker in me is starting to think the cake sounds pretty delicious, too!)”
Loraine wrote, “Finishing up some scrapbook pages!”
Sherry shared, “Today I’m taking a break from all the birthday and anniversary cards I’v been trying to keep up with this month and making some Halloween cards. My Carte Noel kit just auto shipped from HSN –I know what I’ll be making next!”
These spooky cards are so much fun!
Terry posted, “Good morning my creative friends! Today, I dug into my pile of unused die cuts to create this easy to make card. From the bottom the layers are Victorian Concentric, Oblong Concentric, Eiffel Tower & Fancy French Frames.”
These layers work together beautifully!
Vickie wrote, “Working on Halloween cards. This OWL is from Anna’s cut and embossing set!”
Such a boo-tiful card!
Donna wrote, “This card contains a mixture of some of my old Christmas dies, new papers, and a new card topper.”
Barbie said, “Week #33 A set of quadruplets this week! When growing up, we hung up red stockings with our names in green glitter on the fireplace. Then when I had kids and grands, I made them all their own stockings for when they came home for Christmas. So as soon as I saw this die set, I knew what I was going to create with it. I used my cricket to write their names with ink (it was too small to write in green foil like I wanted!). I made one for me too. And included our dog Maxey! Then I made one for each of the kids with the members of their family! I love them!”
Maria posted, “I’m loving the paisley papers this hot humid weekend!”
Andrew shared, “I’d love to win this kit! I absolutely love your Christmas kits. Here are some cards made last year.”
Frankie said, “When my granddaughter was younger, we used to get together and make a gingerbread house when she visited around the holidays. One year she decided we should make a gingerbread train and so we did. I’m not sure it looked exactly like this one but I’m sure it’ll remind her of the one we made when she gets this Christmas card. Dies used: Train Dies Small tree on smoke stack is from Shadowbox Card Dies Candy canes are from Gingerbread House Dies.”
Thank you for sharing your wonderful project with us!
Nancy shared, “Just received my Carte Noel box yesterday and had to play. It took me most of yesterday but it was worth it. Anna we need more paper and embellishments.”
Adding to our requests!
Linda wrote, “Card made at Tuesday get Together with fellow Griffinites.”
How fun! We love seeing your get-togethers and what you make at gatherings.
Dayle posted, “I wanted to make a small Remembrance for the kids of their trip. I just wanted something with just a few pages. Anna’s finishing school booklet class project 3 fit the bill. I wanted it to be more casual so I used more simple papers.”
Frances wrote, “I made this for my sister in law. I gave it to her yesterday. Brought a smile to her face. She is having open heart surgery today. She loves angels and flowers. I used the Mini 3D Flower Dies.”
Veronica shared, “Anna Griffin’s Ferris Wheel Easel Dies.”
Adina posted, “I had a basket full and overflowing with “rejects”; layers, borders, pockets, flowers, feathers, and you name it. The papers didn’t match. The flowers didn’t match. Nothing matched. They didn’t have a home or even a purpose. I didn’t quite know what to do with them. So, I sat down with a bunch of foam adhesive and started layering. This is how it ended up.”
Shirli shared, “I may have been a little inspired by Preview #3.”
Robin wrote, “My goal this year has been to use as many of my older products that I haven’t given much attention to. The card base is from the Explosion Card Kit and it was the starting off point for this card. I used the Ornate Concentric Dies with the Album Die, China Cabinet Dies and Flip to Be Square die. The flowers are from Roses and Hydrangeas. Oh, and the bird is from the Explosion kit.”
That’s a great way to make cards, Robin. We need to do this too!
Mary shared, “I finally had an opportunity to break into my Birthday Celebrations Kit! I love it! Anna makes it easy, all of her products blend together seamlessly!”
Each one is more beautiful than the next!
We are swooning over these beautiful paper projects. Thank you to everyone who shared their creations with us this week. It is such a delight to see what you come up with each week! We love to show off all of the amazing things that you create!
