Craftspiration – July 20th, 2023

Hello crafters,

We want to start by thanking all of you who tuned in to our AGTV show, Christmas in July yesterday. We got the holiday crafting season started in the best way! If you missed our hour of fun, you can watch it and other past shows here.

We have the prettiest display of projects to show you today from our crafting community. It’s wonderful to see and read that some of you have already ordered your Christmas Wishes Card Making Kit and Birthday Wishes Card Making Kit. We are so excited for you to join us for our Merry Craftsmas shows on HSN July 25th at 1am, 12pm, 5pm and 9pm. We have made incredible holiday and birthday items just for you!

Come look at all of the gorgeous projects that have come into the office this week.

Margaret posted, “I completed a page in my art journal using some supplies I had left over from Create 8. I usually make cards and do scrapbooking but I’m learning mixed media as well.  I wanted to share the page with you. Looking forward to Create 9!”

Diane wrote, “I wanted to share an encouragement card I just made for a friend.  I love this particular Annalise paper background topped with one of my favorite Lace Cut & Emboss Dies in shiny green matte foil.  Also, I cut a bunch of different colors of butterflies out of the Butterflies 3D-Dies from saved scraps to add for a final touch to cards with Anna’s flower sticker embellishments.”
You know that we love pink and green together!

All of the different Carte Noire elements are gorgeous together, Jan!

Donna said, “I have been very busy crafting with the Carriage Dies. I just love them! I created this carriage for my daughter who has three dogs that look amazingly similar to the pups in Anna‘s Canine Card Topper kit. I have been taking care of the dogs while my daughter and her husband went on a cruise to Bermuda.This card is her welcome home from the dogs. Now, I need a vacation!”
So cute! The dogs in the carriage is definitely a cute idea.
