Craftspiration- May 11th, 2023

Hello friends,

We think that this past week just might be one of the most creative of all time! With Crop at Home 3 and our Anna Griffin Elegant Papercrafting shows on HSN this week, there has been a whirlwind of amazing crafting happening. We have loved your participation, posting and projects throughout all of the fun. As always we looked to our social media channels to see what you have been up to, and we were so pleased to see such gorgeous cards and projects! Thank you for always brightening our day with your incredible paper projects.

Come see what was crafted and shared!

Jane wrote, “Happy Sunday Morning! Anna’s Big Birthday Boxes aren’t just for bdays, I utilized it to create this celebration card for my suegra’s caregiver, Karen M. who retired on Friday. She’s been with us for a few years caring for my mom-in-law. Karen is super & amazing. They broke the mould when they made Karen. My MIL’S nephew visited from the UK and Karen stayed on extra to make sure the visits went smoothly. We were so grateful. We will miss Karen, she’s become more than just a caregiver to our family. Also, she’s become a HUGE Anna Griffin Inc. fan!! Juanita, converting Griffinites every day!”

Karen said, “Before surgery, I tried my best to get cards made for all the events coming up. The first is my husband’s birthday. I wanted to go all in with the card since the cake I usually make is going to be really delayed.”

Beth shared, “My very good friend’s daughter was married this weekend. This is the card I made for the happy couple. On the bottom underside of the easel cake card I applied a mini pocket to hold the sentiment, personal message and gift. AG dies used in this project: Easel Cake Die, Mini Flower Dies, and Mini Pocket Dies. The cake topper was from the Cricut Library of images.”

Happy Thankful Thursday! Craftspiration continues to be amazing – WOW!! I appreciate everyone’s talent and inspiration. You are all truly gifted crafters. I just completed a carriage card for my granddaughter’s 3rd birthday; turning the horse into a unicorn to match the theme. Pamela, your coronation carriage is absolutely mind-blowing!! Thank you, everyone, for sharing. Have a wonderful day. 😊 💖
