Craftspiration- August 17th, 2023

Hello Griffinites,

You’ve been crafting up a storm this week, and we are happy to see all of these gorgeous projects this week. It’s fun to see you working with the new Wishing Well Finishing School Craft Box Kit and your interpretations from some of our tutorials! We are crafting for all season’s around here and it’s fun to see Halloween, Christmas and everyday projects all represented here.

Come take a look at what was created this week!

Sheri said, “Just watched the Wishing Well Finishing School Craft Box Class, Gosh 6 projects Wow!!! Beautiful!!! I want to make ever project. This is my own version but I’m going to definitely need a refill Paper Pack and Embellishments. I want to use so many of the beautiful flowers on each card. The flowers are a perfect size. Thank you for creating such beautiful products.”

Gorgeous card! We love how you used the floral as a shadow layer!

Diane posted, “This is the EXTRA FUN new Perfect Present Easel Die that Anna introduced in an AGTV presentation.  I chose two different pastel blues in 5-1/2”x 12” Metallic Layers paper for the present, a sheet from the Floral Double-sided card stock for the easel and a 5×7”gold Matte Foil for the present lid and adhesive squares for a 3D look.   Flower embellishments are from the China Cabinet Finishing School Craft Box.”

Fright-tastic combo, Eve!

So nice. Wish I had an empress to do those things. But I love the cards. Will keep the ideas. Thank you

Happy Thankful Thursday! What an extremely artistic group today – so creative. Love the little doxie in Donna’s card – reminds me of our little guy we had. Each and every project is beautiful and full of inspiration. Thank you for sharing! As always, sending blessings for a wonderful day ahead. 😊 ❤️

So many gorgeous projects. I honestly could not pick a favorite. All of them have so much talent!

Congratulations to all that had a card on display today. Such a wonderful variety. I saw a card from the Christmas Wishes box made like I had been thinking of doing. Now I know it will really look good. I could mention all the cards but each is wonderful in it’s own unique way. Some use dies I don’t have and a few like the vehicles I am looking forward to trying and pray I have the patience to paper piece them to look as good as yours. Thank you for sharing your inspirations.
