It’s fun that you never know what you will see next, and we love ooh-ing and ahh-ing over what was made and shared by Griffinites all over the country. We have lots of projects below that are sure to give you a creative spark and crafting ideas galore! From pattern mixing to use of different collections, new ways of looking at dies and more, we know that Craftspiration is the place to be each week.

What a fun occasion to scrapbook for!

Allyson posted, “I made this shadowbox for my mom. My favorite photo of my grandparents. I’m also making one for dad with a photo of his mom when she was just 5. I’m excited to see how they look side by side on their wall.”

This is so special!

Marcia said, “My niece is getting married and I have been invited to a “no wrap” bridal shower! Who knew? I just couldn’t see bringing gifts that happen to be in boring tan boxes…so I’ve used the Gift Tag Dies to make some fancy tags for some plain boxes.”

These are so much fun!

Shellie wrote, “It’s a little bit corny, and that’s a-MAIZE-ing, this Father’s Day card just right for my farmer brother-in-law who raises beef, hay, and corn. The ways that Anna’s cardstock patterns and die designs can be transformed into something not-floral, yet still stylish are part of the fun and value of Anna’s teaching Finishing School, and in her Illustrated Instruction Sheets that ‘train the eye’ and ‘tap the creativity ‘.”

Shellie also said, “Today, I completed a set of 4 ‘inlay’ Dad’s Day cards, using Anna’s newest cutting dies, following the beautiful inspiration of the card designs on the Illustrated Instruction Sheet that comes with. What a great inlay technique for the dimension and lines of these cool ‘font-styles!’ Making AG cards is as much fun as them receiving!”
Great cards, Shellie!

Diane My neighbor friend plays professional piano.  Recently she was asked to play a complicated piece for a youth concert.  I made her this encouragement card and gave it to her the day before her big performance!  Made on Anna’s gold Shimmer Blush card, used white signature card background, layered embossed & cut gold metallic oval, embellished with Anna’s roses, red bow, music paper and foil flourishes.
We know that she loved it!

Dayle wrote, “I just loved AGTV summer cards last week. I love gardens and gates so I had to try my hand at the secret garden card. I used papers from Annalise, Salon Nouveau, China cabinet and the green foil. Plus Salon Nouveau dies along with the Gate Die Set. The garden was from greenhouse card toppers. And some flower cart embellishments.”

Sheri wrote, “Third day of crafting with my new purchase from Anna’s BIG sale. The 3D FANTASTIC FAN DIES have been on my wish list so I took advantage of the great clearance sale and used the New ANNALISE PAPER CRAFTING KIT. Love the fun Summer colors.”

Gorgeous, gorgeous card!

If I didn’t know better I would think the photo from Margie with the old clock and rock wall was taken in my house built in 1926. Loved the card too.
