Craftspiration- April 20th, 2023

Hi Griffinites,

You all have outdone yourselves this week with the amazing cards and projects that you shared with us across our social media channels and email! Thank you for the creative spark that you ignited with these lovely crafts! We look forward to seeing what you make each week, and it’s so fun to have a look into your worlds and to see what you are creating for.

Come be inspired!

Valerie said, “Made two cards highlighting the 3D Mini Butterfly dies. Wanted to try something new so I cut out the card fronts and covered both with the three rolls of washi tape I own. The card on the right I made a Pet Sympathy card for my youngest adult niece whose sweet kitty lost her battle against cancer this month. The card on the left are all the washi tape butterflies for a Hello type card for you Anna.”

Jennifer shared, “My very first Anna Griffin Easel card using Anna’s new Flower Cart Finishing School Craft Box & die set. A 27th Birthday card for my youngest daughter Victoria Isabella. We call her Tori Belle. Anna saved the day with her wonderful Finishing School videos. I was watching Anna’s wonderful Flower Cart Instructional Finishing School Videos in the wee hours of the morning of Friday, April 14th (Victoria’s Birthday) in hopes of producing an orange & yellow (her favorite colors) themed card for my daughter before her party later that afternoon. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! She loves flowers & is unfortunately allergic to pollen & sensitive to fragrance. Anna’s beautiful paper flowers & Annalise collection along with Anna’s Flower Cart Finnishing School Craft Box saved the day! It all came together so much faster than I ever imagined it would. She was so pleased & surprised with the card & said she would cherish it & keep it forever! So EXTRA special! Thank you Anna! I am so full of gratitude & thanks not only to you but to my thoughtful generous daughters as well. They purchased an AG Finishing school membership for me for Christmas 2022 & purchased a ticket for Create Crop At Home 3 for me for a Happy Mother’s Day Gift! I am truly blessed. I will get to make beautiful scrapbook pages of our cherished photos & happy memories with my daughters & all of you in Annaland the first weekend in MAY! YAY! WE ARE SO EXCITED! THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU & ALL THAT YOU DO TO ADD HAPPY POSITIVE BEAUTY & CREATIVITY TO ALL OF OUR LIVES, FOR ALL OF THE GENERATIONS TO COME TO ENJOY! HUGS! YOU ARE LOVED!”

Lisa said, “This is a card for my best friend’s mother-in-law in ICU at the hospital. First time using the 3D Fancy French Frame and 3D Butterfly dies I bought when they first came out. Used the Lillian Paper Crafting Collection and the coveted ice blue and pink metallic card stock in the swag bag from one of the virtual Creates.”
