Two Anna Griffin Cricut Cartridge Giveaways!!

When I purchased the Cricut July Mystery box I got two Anna Griffin Cartridges that I already own:
So, I decided to do two giveaways to share with my followers here and subscribers on YouTube. 

There will be two separate winners and you can choose between: "Anna's Sophisticated Soirees" or "Anna's Splendid Soirees", both have great projects possibilities for parties, showers and themed gatherings.  I will also be adding an Anna Griffin Embossing folder with each cartridge (also duplicates in my stash).  All you need to do to enter is:  You must be over the age of 18, and a US resident, you must be a current follower of my blog here or a subscriber to my YouTube channel.  Leave a comment below letting me know which cartridge you are interested in winning and you will be added to the pool for that cartridge.   

If you haven't subscribed to my YouTube channel now's a good time to subscribe to catch all my videos with show & tells on projects and hauls, lots of project tutorials and sharing what I've been up to. 
Check out the video below for also about the Cricut Cartridge giveaway.

Cricut July Mystery first time.

For the first time I purchased the Cricut Mystery Box.  They do one each month and I decided to buy the one form July.  I just posting and sharing this because I just got it.  It seemed to take so long to arrive but I had missed the delivery notice.  So when I found out it had been delivered I thought someone stole it because I didn't get it.  So I tracked it on the Cricut site and it showed that someone signed for it. As it turned out it was delivered to the rental office where I live.  I knew that the postman left packages at to office but before FedEx had left packages at my door.  All that matters is I got it, so now I can share what I got with you! So, this is what I got:
 It has three Cricut Cartridges.  it has "Classically Modern Cards", "Anna's Splendid Soirees" and 

"Anna's Sophisticated Soirees". I it also has the "Cricut Pearl Paper Sampler", 

                                             "Woodland Washi Sheets" by Lia Griffith

 "Anna's Pretty Prints Washi Sheets" by Anna Griffin

last but not least a Paper Crafting tool set that includes a paper piercer, a Quilling tool, paper distresser and the mat that has a hard side to work on and a soft side to pierce paper (to insert brads, stitching holes, etc).

Funny thing is I own both of the Anna's cartridges but really happy to get the Classically Modern Cards cartridge, I've been wanting that one.   So, I'm going to share the two Anna Griffin cartridges with you.  I'm going to do two giveaways of the Cricut cartridges.
 So check out my next post for details of the giveaway.

Get Well Soon...Card Share

I made this card for my son's, girlfriend's, mom.
 She recently had surgery and I just wanted to encourage her and let her know she was in my thoughts and prayers.  She has since been told that she is cancer free, Praise God!  I'm praying that she recovers and live a long happy & healthy life.   I used the butterflies from my last video of the faux fabric flowers & butterflies.  I also used some Anna Griffin elements and used my Silhouette Cameo & they turned out great.  Here's a video showing more details...

Thanks for stopping by, take care.  I'll be back with more later.

Happy Crafting!

Beautiful Faux Fabric Flowers...Using paper napkins

If you like making paper flowers, you're really going to love these!
They really look like they're made out of fabric but it only takes paper.  I came across a video from another YouTube craftier and I couldn't wait to give it a try (I share a link to her channel on YouTube in the description box).  So, I ran out to 'Tuesday Morning' to buy some napkins.  Tuesday Morning always have these really pretty party napkins, here's the ones I got.
Napkins from Tuesday Morning
Check out my video here with a little more detail on making these kind of flowers...ENJOY!

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back with more soon.

Happy Crafting!

It's been awhile...but I'm back!

It has been a really long time...but I'm finally back. I guess some of you thought I fell off the planet. I hope I still have some viewer & readers out there.  There have been tons of changes and transformations in my life but I think things are finally settling down.  September last year I moved from Maryland to South Carolina and I'm still getting used to my new life here in my new adopted home state. I really like my little town of "Greenville, SC", it's kinda just right, not too big & not too small. I've also shared some of my transition on my YouTube channel but check this out:

It's amazing though how much traffic there is around here.  It have been said that Greenville, SC has been a well kept little secret but now everyone else is discovering it and moving to the area too. There's a Greenville in NC also but I'm betting my Greenville is the best...just sayin'.

So, back to the subject to crafting, card making, scrap booking etc.  I'd switched my blog to another site but decided to come back to "Blogger", it's just all around easier.   I have been doing those things but not as often but the other thing is I got caught up in making YouTube video more so than blogging  but felt a little of a void, I really missed my blogging friends too.  So, now that I've gotten myself a little more settled I'll be doing both.  If you are interested here is a link to my YouTube Channel Obrooks7701, please join me there and subscribe. On YouTube it much easier to share tutorials and projects by video but I'll post pics here just as before.  I have so much I want to try and share so stay tuned.  This time it won't be so much time when I say....I'll be back with more soon.

Happy Crafting!!
