Blogoversary- Year 4!!!

Hello crafty friends,
Today marks a special day around the blog-o... It's my 4th Blogoversary! How the time flies when you're having fun! It's hard to believe I've been sharing my crazy concoctions for 4 years now. I would like to thank each and every one of you who pop in to see what I've got to share, who email me, and those who take the time to leave your sweet comments *Ü* I truly appreciate each and every one of them---> and YOU!
So, are you ready to see what I've got for ya this year? I hope so, because this is going to be a GREAT giveaway! Wait, not just great, but GRIFFIN great! *Ü* (squeal!)

I present the 2013 Crafting with Class Blogoversary Blog Candy:
If you've spent some time around my blog, you'll know that I LUUUUUUV Anna Griffin. She was the FIRST designer that I was introduced to when I started crafting 4 years ago. It was her gorgeous work that inspired and influenced my "more is more" design style. So, I could not let another year go by & not showcase her products as my blogoversary candy.

The deets: You will be getting loads of her beautiful papers, floral stickers, ribbons, journaling tags, titles, floral resin embellishments, decorative corners, tabs, and flocked stickers.
That pic is quite pretty, but I feel like even with all that, there's something missing...hmmm...something should go in that empty space on the top right, don't ya think?!

I know! How about some of her BEAUTIFUL, brand-spankin' new embossing folders!
 You've seen how much I have used mine & i absolutely luv the designs- (as if Anna could do any wrong by me ;) I have chosen my three favs. (2) 5 x 7 folders,  (1) 4 x 6 folder, and (3) border folders.

Here's the whole garden of Griffin goodies:

So what do you need to do to play along? Simple! Leave ONE comment answering the following question:
Who is your favorite designer or stamp company? What do you luv the most about their products or designs?----> you never know... you might see them in future blog candy giveaways...
 and don't worry, spelling doesn't count ;)

Now for the rules:
Booo! Hisss! Keep calm & read on...

1) PLAY NICELY WITH OTHERS! Do I really need to explain this?

2) ONE comment per person. Additional comments will be deleted.  I will be watching with my teacher eyes and you know I have been trained in the ways of cheaters by the BEST, MOST EXPERIENCED people in the country---> High School students! *Ü*

3) U.S. residents only. (sorry friends from a far... shipping costs prohibit :(

As with any other blog candy I've ever offered, you DO NOT need to be a follower.  Follow this blog only if you like the crazy crafty concoctions I share :)  I'd rather you follow because you want to, not because there's blog candy up for grabs. BUT... (yes, there is a but) if you ARE a follower,  I will be adding even MORE Griffin Goodies to your prize pack that will be bursting out of the box!!!
My sincerest gratitude to the nearly 500 followers of my blog. Good googly moogly! Thank you!

Deadline: You have until midnight, Thursday, April 25th (PST)
 As with the previous years, my beautiful assistant: (sadly, not my actual kitty :(

will use to choose a winner. The winner will have until Sunday, April 28th to claim their prize or my beautiful assistant will choose again.

Here's a pic of one of the happiest days ever! Meeting Anna Griffin at CHA:
She had her arm around my shoulder & I was hoping she wouldn't feel my heart thumping through my shirt! I am the MOST unphotogenic person ever & was praying that I wouldn't come out looking like a mutant with 4 chins. Well, it turned out good enough for me! She's as lovely in person as her papers & embellishments *Ü*.
If you want to see why I luuuv Anna Griffin so much you may want to peek at her Pinterest boards---> HERE 

Again, THANK YOU for 4 years of bloggy goodness! Thank you & big hugs to my blog pals that I've known since the beginning.

  3. Picking a faorite stamp company,boy, you make it hard! Inkadinkadoo because they have so may great classic designs. I would have said PSX, but they have been out of business so long that most have forgotten them. There have been several really great companies that are gone now. I miss them. (been stamping 20 years)

  4. Congrats! You look great in the photo. I think my favorite paper is My Mind's Eye, their colors are lovely. My entry smells like catnip!

  5. Happy 4th Bloggerversary!

    That is a very nice picture of you and Anna Griffin.

    Lately, Inspired by Stamping has become my favorite stamp co. The clear stamps are very good quality and I love the designs.

  6. Congratulations on your 4 year anniversary! I've been following for at least a year, probably longer because I enjoy the things you share with us.

  7. WOw Karli, Happy Blogaversary to YOU!!!

    I am a follower of Crafting with Class and have been for several years. I love Anna Griffin, all of her papers and kits, fell in love with her designs and style ever since I first saw her on her appearances on HGTV moons ago. I love the old PSX stamps, non better, well maybe Magenta.

    Hope I win.

  8. Boy is this a tough one. Choose just one designer?
    There are so many I like, but Selma Stevenson has to be my choice. Fantastic Blog candy. Anna is another fav designer. Congtats on your 4th anniversary.

  9. My favorite stamp company is Magnolia Stamps. I just love sweet little Tilda and Edwin! I also love Anna Griffin ~ I watch her every chance I get on HSN! Her new embossing folders are to die for! Love the elegance her products bring to a project!
    Congrats on your Blogaversary!!!

  10. Congratulations on your 4 years! I think you look great. Choosing one is very hard I really like Lili of the Valley. Because I really think James the Bear is sooo darn cute and cuddly.

  11. Congratulations on your 4th year blogging!!! I love your website. Who is my favorite designer or stamp company?
    That would be Papertreyink!!!

    What do you luv the most about their products or designs?
    Nicole Heady and her group of talented women inspire me always with their art, tools, paper, ink, dies!!!
    Thank You Karli!!

  13. Karli ~ Congrats on 4 years! I've been following by email for a few years now...I better check if I'm in the follower list! And my fav company would have to be My Favorite Things. The Pure Innocence girl reminds me of my daughter when she was little :) And I love the dies too! Thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies!


  14. Congratulations on your blogoversary! I am particularly partial to Close to my Heart stamps but would be happy trying any kind. Thank you for the chance to win!

  15. Congrats on 4 years!! I'm really bad about blogging, so congrats that you've kept it up for so long!!! I think my favorite is MFT because they not only have stamps, but the dies to go along with them! But there are just SO many others that I love!! I love how that picture of you and Anna came out!! It's GREAT! You should print it out, embellish it, then frame it in a beautiful frame. It's so cool that you met her!!

  16. Congratulations Karli! You have really inspired me on my projects. I just do not know how you "think up" such wonderful ideas! My favorite stamp company is MFT. Alot of your creations have been made with their products and I just can't stop shopping their website.

  17. I would have to say that Tim Holtz is my favorite designer for stamps right now. I go through phases like everyone. Congrats on meeting Anna Griffin. I met Lisa Bearnson at a scrapbooking convention and I love/hate the picture at the same time. I love that Lisa's in the picture, but hate how I look in the picture.

  18. Happy Blogoversary Karli! Although I live in Canada and cannot be a part of the lovely Anna Griffin giveaway (sigh -- so beautiful), I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your wonderful blog and all of your inspiring designs and projects. Your sunny personality, love for your family, and your dedication to your profession are obvious. It has been such a pleasure getting to know you over these years.
    Keep blogging and smiling and thanks again!

  19. What a fun giveaway. You look beautiful Karli! Thanks for a chance to win these AG goodies. Happy 4th Blogoversary. I enjoy getting your posts in my email. =D

  20. Oh man! I don't think I HAVE a favorite designer. It really changes moment by moment. But Anna is in the top ten, for sure!!

  21. Happy Blogoversary to you, it always inspires me to visit you here! Love the pic of you with Anna, so cool! For my fave company (hard to pick just one), but I think I would go with PTI. I really like their stamps, but even more than the stamps, I LOVE their c/s, ribbon and dies! Wishing you many more happy years of blogging!

  22. I'm in love with PTI but I have also discovered new (to me) companies like Simon Says Stamp! Love their new dies and stamp set!

    Congrats on your 4th anniversary, may you have many more!!
