Hello friends,

If you are looking for a bolt of creative inspiration, then you are certainly in the right place! We love when you share your projects with us, and each week we look forward to compiling and sharing them here on Craftspiration. We know that you love seeing these incredible projects as much as we do!

Come see this week’s gorgeous offerings.

Gabrielle is making gorgeous Christmas cards full of poinsettias.

Diane said, “I am still trying to get used to pink for Christmas but, this card turned out so angelic.  I absolutely love Anna’s beautiful 3D Angels and Poinsettia stickers.  I selected a pink card from Anna’s Shimmer Blush Cards & Envelopes and cut the pink center from the Fanciful Concentric Dies out of Pastel Matte Foil Cardstock.”

Dayle posted, “Scrapbook page using the gorgeous heritage papers from Crop at Home 1.  I love how the paper looks with the girls dresses.  Border and mats from crop at home 3.  And the garden arch dies.  And the beautiful flowers and butterflies are also from the heritage collection.”
