With it getting closer to Valentine's Day, I thought I'd keep playing with my Anna Griffin stash. Just had a wonderful time trying my best to use up some of those gorgeous Anna Griffin papers and embellishments I have been hoarding.
Of course Anna if known for her beautiful flowers, so it was easy to create these bursting with beauty Spring layouts. If you are an Anna fan at all, you might recognize that I used old and new pieces from her lines to create these. And one of my favorite things about her line is that the colors from one to another match so perfectly.
I created this title by teaming up my Silhouette and Cricut Design Space programs, using Anna Griffin cartridge artwork. The "love you" was cut on the Cricut out to heavy chipboard. While the florals and offset backgrounds were cut with the Silhouette. ( I made a video on how I did this and have it uploaded at the bottom of this post.)
I applied a little glue to the edges of my butterflies and title, then just pressed on some gold foil to give it just a little extra sparkle.
Even the older embellishments, like the chipboard letters I bought over 5 years ago, still blend in so well to complete these pages.And the tags and quotes from different packages I have bought over the last several years, yes, they too helped create these finished projects.
This 2 page spread is made using the Juliet kit I bought recently from HSN. Just love love love the sweet look of this happy pair of pages.
I did use some paper flowers I had bought from Michaels, Prima and Hobby Lobby on this layout. They blended in so perfectly with Anna's more casual style of these papers. Plus, I was able to layer in some of the vellum quotes I have stashed away! All of Anna's kits come with so many pieces, but I still find myself so hesitant to ever use any of them. I know, I know....it's a true mental condition I have here...I think I read recently it was called the SABLE syndrome...Stash Amassed Beyond Life Expectancy. Lolololol, yep, definitely my problem...and I embrace it happily!
Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous obsession with me.
And have fun crafting!
Here's the video on how I made the title on the first layout.
