Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Embossing Folders – ROSA

If you saw my post on my Embossing Folders binder awhile back, you may have guessed that I have a fierce obsession with collecting these little beauties. :) I love a good tool that I can use over and over, and I love pattern! Inexpensive tool + pattern = my love for embossing folders! They are the perfect way to add subtle interest to a piece of cardstock. I HEART them!!!

At the end of last year Cricut asked me to create several projects for a January HSN release using Cuttlebug Folders designed by Anna Griffin. They are GORGEOUS! They are sold out on the HSN site, but you can purchase the Anna Griffin Folders on Cricut.com HERE.

I thought I would take this week to share my projects with you that I created with three of these delicious folders. The photos of the projects aren’t the greatest, but hopefully you get the idea.

Today I’ll show you the projects I created with the ROSA FOLDER. If you’d like to see the others, I will be posting them over the next couple of days.

My Mind’s Eye Design Team Guest Designs at Page Maps

I love me a good sketch! So you KNOW I was excited when the My Mind’s Eye was invited to contribute samples to Becky Fleck’s PageMaps sketch site for the month of April. :D :D :D Happy, Happy, Happy! (As Phil would say)

Here is the sketch I worked with:

apr13_12x12d

And here is the page I created using the My Mind’s Eye Collectable Collection.

JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_MonsterMoth1

The moths were cut with my Cricut Expression machine using the Live Simply cartridge. I embossed their wings with my Cuttlebug Machine and the Peacock Feather folder from the Animal Prints folder set. I love the bit of shine the enamel dots add!

JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_MonsterMoth2

It’s hard to tell from the snapshots on my layout … but that moth was HUGE!!! We just don’t have moths like that here in Utah. I’ve lived here my entire life and this is the first time I’ve ever seen something like that. Each of the bricks on our home are 3″ tall and his wings spread across two of them. I felt a bit like that Spongebob Squarepants episode where the town is afraid of the butterfly … none of us were brave enough to get close to it, except for my son, for fear that it would come at us. LOL!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team created for the April PageMaps HERE. These girls are amazing!

See you again soon!
