Hello crafty friends,

We have a gorgeous display of creativity to share with you today! Each week we love to share some of the incredible things that were made and shared by our super talented community. It is so much fun to see and hear what you are working on and what you are creating for. Today there is everything from birthday cards and Halloween to Christmas and even Thanksgiving. Some of our newest items have started popping up in your shares, and we love to see how you work with each of them. You never fail to give us plenty of inspiration each week and today is no different!

Diane said, “While anxiously waiting for all of Anna’s Falloween items to arrive from HSN’s sale, I decided to use the Haunted House Easel Die Set and turn it into a 5×7 card.  I also used a few tiny Halloween embellishments from her Mini-House Die Cuts on the house. The house and shutters are some paper from my craft room however, all the black paper is her Black Matte Foil Cardstock.”

Barbara wrote, “Hi I thought I’d see if you would like to use it for Craftspiration. This is a picture of my first granddaughter with Santa at Yankee Candle in Williamsburg. They always had the best Santa, and these papers were perfect for the photo. Of course I had to use the CAH scallop dies, and I was able to use new and old embellishments. Thank you for such great quality in all your craft supplies!”

Hello Anna & Greetings to all the Griffinites
Thank you for showing my Everyday Gift Card holders. Anna, they were made with your much-loved matte gold foil and ice blue double-sided ornament cardstock. My cell camera does not show the blue to its full potential.
There are so many Fall and Autumn ideas today! xoxo Also the Stained-Glass cards are lovely! Blessings
