The "Lizzie" range by Anna Griffin is such a bright and happy collection and Janine knew she wanted to create a bright and playful LO using it. Janine used the design of the paper to guide her in the design, but hand cutting the "rainbow" effect paper so that it appeared the floral heart cluster was at the top of the rainbow. She finished off the LO with stuffing Anna Griffin alphabet stickers, that add so much flourish to the design.
Louise W loves to fussy cut and the Francesca range from Anna Griffin was perfect for the technique. She cut out a selection of flowers and leaves from the Green Floral paper and layered them with foam tape amongst a variety of other embellishments - punched leaves, muslin, misted Prima leaves and roses along with the keyhole. She finished it off with dimensional paint dots and one of the Anna Griffin dimensional butterfly stickers.
The whole effect is combined with a digital frame she purchased online and printed out, bringing together a modern but heritage look to the layout.
Steph Devlin has used Anna Griffin papers to perfection in this lovely layout. With fussy cut elements, punched edges and a beautiful cluster of flowers and die cuts, the page pops with subtle yet purposeful colour.
Steph has again used Anna Griffin's paper designs perfectly in this soft and pretty page. Fussy cutting and punched edges add a delicate feel, while the soft hues used are perfect to convey a 'Simple Elegance'.
It was the monochromatic colours and the fussy cutting that caught Louise's eye in the gallery when she spotted this lovely layout from Joanne Bain. Joanne has raised the elements to add dimension and the clustering with the title and single rose bring focus to the photo perfectly.
The Anna Griffin Valentina range is designed for layouts about love! Although Sue's layout is about love, it is the love between a mother and daughter. Sue has used the collection to create a layout with a lovely pink, red and cream colour palette. There are beautiful specialty papers in the Anna Griffin ranges and Sue has made use of 4 of them! Sue loved the Pearl Label corrugated cardstock and this was the starting point for her layout.
She then used the Pink Hearts flocked and die-cut cardstock over the top of the corrugated cardstock and trimmed off the excess. Sue felt it needed a little touch of red so she used one of the red patterned papers to create a border around the label shape. Stitching has been used to hold all three layers together. One of the decorative papers in the Valentina collection is called Ivory Lace die-cut cardstock and it has a beautiful scalloped lacy edge.
Instead of using the paper as a whole, Sue cut off the decorative borders, sprayed them with a pink Glimmer Mist and used them on her page as scalloped border pieces, layered one on top of each other. To make them stand out on the layout, Sue first backed them with a red script patterned paper also from the collection. Another of the decorative papers is the Pink Hearts Stitched cardstock. Sue cut three of the hearts out of the paper and used them for embellishments.
Using one of the hearts as a template, Sue also cut two more hearts out of the Pink Damask flocked paper, one of which she has stamped over with Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards stamps. Prima flowers, tulle and Jenni Bowlin buttons have been used to finish off this pretty page.
In this page Janine used the Fido range from Anna Griffin, but omitted the cute pet images to show that a range can be far more versatile than originally thought. These papers have been designed for pet pages, but the gorgeous spring colours inspired Janine to create a flower filled LO in spring colours. Janine has combined the Anna Griffin dimensional flower stickers with Prima blooms and handcut floral elements for a feast of layered prettiness.
The whole layout is based on layers of hand cut scalloped paper. Janine traced around a decorative edged paper and then hand cut with scissors. Finishing off the whole design is the amazing script chipboard alphabet by Anna Griffin adding a touch of elegance to the Layout.
Anna Griffin papers are known for their elegance and this LO by Steph Devlin is all about elegance She has used the Anna Griffin flocked papers to perfection and kept the palette monochromatic which is a divine touch. Steph also coloured the dangling beads on her Prima flower with markers to keep the monochromatic effect of her LO. Thanks for sharing such a stunning layout with us Steph.
This gorgeous layout was created by the amazing Stephanie Howell. Stephanie has used the Ivory Lace die-cut cardstock from the Anna Griffin range as the backdrop for her stunning page. The elegance of the die-cut sets off the simplicity of Stephanie's design. She has captured her emotion of 'pure bliss' perfectly. Thanks Stephanie for allowing us to share your page.
These new Anna Griffin papers are wonderful and elegant and very easy to work with. The highlight of the range for Janine were the die cuts, which contained these magnificent glittered baubles, that provide a perfect way to embellish her Christmas pages. The holly leaves under the floral cluster were from the same packet of diecuts.
This stunning Collection by Anna Griffin "Calisto Christmas" is one of Carole Favourites Christmas designs, she adored everything about this collection, from the pattern papers to the 3D Stickers and the cute Matt Frames. The pattern papers are just so great to cut into and create gorgeous themes such as the cute Santa sitting making a Sleigh and the Santas Greetings Letter, which Carole layered to give more dimension she loves.
Iris created this Christmas themed birdcage using only one sheet of glittered paper from the Anna Griffin Cecile collection plus Anna Griffin Calisto stickers. The paper came in a cream color with gold glitter. She just added distress inks on Fired Brick and Mustard seed to add color to the paper which was then used to cover the roof of the Twiddleybitz birdcage, and to create the pretty paper roses.
Suz has used strips from the seriously stunning Isabelle range in this layout. The designs are so intricate she thought she would let them speak for themselves on a fairly simple canvas of white cardstock and chose to make the main photo black and white. She adored the rainbow of colours and thought it made the perfect background for the whole gamut of professions her daughter intends to have when she grows up.
The Anna Griffin Cecile Range is a beautifully feminine story of patterned papers and embellishments. Here Steph has cut out the flowers and combined them with the gorgeous flocked die cut, which she has cut in half to add more impact to the page. She has layered all these elements on top of the Anna Griffin corrugated bracket die cut, which adds texture and interest to her layout.
Georgia Keays kindly allowed us to share her lovely layout which uses the Darcey patterned paper line. We love the gorgeous large floral print in the background and the fabulous splash of yellow she has created with the flower and title. Thanks for allowing us to share, Georgia!
Finally, we leave you with some cards created by the Anna Griffin design team, from their three latest very different but very Anna Griffin patterned paper ranges.
The main thing Nicole loves about adding flocking to her pages is it's instant ability to invite the viewer to touch it! The irresistible urge to do so engages the viewer on an extra level and adds an instant warmth which is something Nic loves.
On this page, Nicole created the corner flower flourish, the dot border and the word "Meow" from flocking produced by We R Memory Keepers. Included in the flocking packs are sticky rub-ons which you apply in place like any other rub-on, then overlay a sheet of flock, foil or glitter. The result is a delicious and clean velvet finish and the beauty of applying it this way means it can be added anywhere to your page plus there is the added benefit of having a choice of colours.
Janine fell in love with the Anna Griffin papers especially her flocked papers as they add so much texture to the page. Janine immediately knew she wanted to cut out the flocked butterflies to make a feature on her page featuring her adorable baby boy. You just want to reach out and touch the velvety butterflies on her page.
No patterned paper was really required here with Suz’s treatment of gorgeous felt fusion. The lilac is Queen & Co., the black is a beautiful narrow Anna Griffin that’s been cut in half lengthways to give the tops of the photos a flat edge. A title, a strategically placed We R Memory Keepers flower and a sprinkling of bling was all that was left to finish off this page, detailing how Suz’s daughter wanted her hair done for this year’s Crazy Hair Day at school.
Carole loves We R Memory Keeper's products, and the Lace trim is no except, just gorgeous and so easy to use. Carole stuck the "Nonsense" Blue Bird Flocked Lace straight onto the bottom of the layout, then she stuck the "Twirl" Lace Grow onto acetate and then layered it above the embellished houses she created from the Twirl Home pattern paper, it was so versatile and it looks wonderful.
Carole also used the "Twirl" Embossed stickers to highlight her journaling and photo, all the products coordinate so well together, which makes it all so easy to use.
Anna Griffins Flora would have to be one of Carole's favourite collections. The florals suit Carole's style and the colours and embellishments to this collections are just so complementary. Carole cut and layered the flowers onto the layout with her usual incredible detail, and also added some stitching.
Nicole used the lace cut papers in the Peyton collection to create a textured mat underneath her photo, to give it an interesting border. She also cut elements from the lace paper to use as embellishments then used the textured animal-print paper to not only cover a chipboard letter but also as some funky pleated ribbon-styled border details. She created the flower from Anna Griffin ribbons and cut the felt ribbon in half to create the pretty lacy edge. The journal pad creates perfect journal blocks that will match with many different layouts and paper ranges and aren't those bling brads gorgeous?
Suz had the Darcey collection to play with which includes, but isn’t limited to a beautiful colour palette of pretty greens, reds and black which is a versatile enough combination to be used for pretty much anything! The co-ordinating alphas are flocked, as are some of the papers, like the green damask design Suz cut out at the top right hand corner of her layout. Combining the textures of the flocking with the translucent smooth vellum and adding stitching creates interest in this linear layout.
Clearly, you don’t have to stick to specifically themed Christmas papers to make perfectly stunning Christmas cards, as Steph shows here with fabulous new Anna Griffin designs.
Steph decided to use non-traditional papers and a combination of the Flora, Darcey and Peyton Collections mixed and matched beautifully. She wanted to play with non-traditional shapes for cards too, and decided to use a bracket shape for her first card. Steph used the packaging from the Jenni Bowlin Buttons as her template and traced around the shape onto her patterned paper.
After cutting, she adhered to cardstock and cut a .5cm border around the edge. Steph used the Anna Griffin trims to embellish her card, and rub-on's for a title.
On this card, Steph used the beautiful Anna Griffin Flora Paper as her background. For texture she used the Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Chipboard and covered it with flocked paper from Anna Griffin's Darcey Collection. She border punched the Aussie Scrap Source green cardstock and added trim. The rub on was placed onto cardstock and then mounted with foam tape onto the finished card.
Once again, Steph has gone for a non-traditional shape and colors. The beautiful red and blue Anna Griffin papers highlight the gorgeous partridge rub on. The icing on the cake, was the stunning Anna Griffin silver braid which finished the card off with a real Christmas accent.
