a killer deal!

I know...it's unusual for me to post on a weekend, but I just had to share. This is an opportunity you're not going to want to pass up! 50% off all scrapbooking and paper crafts classes at Craftsy.com is worth a Saturday post, right?


Taking a class from industry experts like Kelly Purkey, Ronda Palazarri, or Cathie Rigby for $10?? That's almost 90 minutes of basically private instruction from the best of the best...are you kidding me??

If you haven't taken a class from Craftsy.com I highly recommend checking them out. They are currently growing their paper crafts and scrapbooking classes and their video lessons are of the highest quality. Seriously.

anna griffin paper collection stash grab!

I've got some Anna Griffin paper bundles up for grabs. Check 'em out!

Various patterned papers from the Carmen collection (text weight)

Patterned papers from several classic collections (flocked, text weight and cardstock)

Patterned paper, die cut paper, stickers, die cuts, borders, vellum quotes, 6x6 paper pads

All I ask is for some shipping and handling fees to cover my expenses, but the product is yours for free. You'll need to have a PayPal account and I'll give the recipients instructions for how to send me the shipping and handling before I send the boxes. Or, if you're a Northern Utah local and would like to come pick it up at my house, I'll waive the shipping and handling fee.

**I do need to add a caveat here--some of these are partial sticker sheets and collections. Also, a few of the papers may have one small punched circle or square but almost all are full sheets.

If you don't mind slightly partial collections, then please leave a comment below telling me which of the three bundles you'd like. Please only pick one!!!  Bundles go to the first blog comment in which they are mentioned--one per person per day please. Only US shipping addresses. I'll announce the three recipients later today, so be sure to check back.

ETA: all of the above bundles are spoken for. Thanks for stopping by, and check back next week for more Anna Griffin goodies.

echo park projects + autumn crisp kit winners!!

I've got a couple of recent Echo Park projects to share with you, but first I'm happy to announce the two winners of the American Crafts Autumn Crisp kits. Drumroll please...


Jeannine said...
I love to make items that incorporate photos of my grandkids in prior years' Halloween costumes....a BOO bouquet and a fire place banner have been a couple. They get saved and are enjoyed every year.

Those look super cute! What a fun class and the products are beautiful! I made a few pumpkins last year and really enjoyed those. Very fun!

Congratulations ladies! Please send me an email (link's on the side bard) and I'll get you your prizes asap. 


Princess Card


I created this card using the new Echo Park Princess Mini-Theme and the adorable new Cupcake Wish Designer Dies. I used one of the journaling cards as a quick and easy mat for my sentiment and cupcake. For a free downloadable PDF with full instructions and supplies, visit the Echo Park Paper website HERE.

Beautiful Life Layout


Here's another recent project that I created. This time I used the darling new Fine and Dandy collection. I thought it would be perfect for these garden photos I took with my new macro lens. I also used the new Oh Happy Day Designer Die & Stamp Set to create the banners and the camera. Love the stamp and die sets--so convenient! For more details, visit the Echo Park Paper blog HERE.

anna griffin holiday stash grab!

This summer I announced my decision to step down from my wonderful time as an Anna Griffin design team member. I loved working with the amazing talent there and the beautiful high quality products for the past three years. But, I need to make some room in my office for new product!
