Craftspiration- October 5th, 2023

Hi Griffinites,

Happy Craftspiration Day to you! As always, we are so inspired by the wonderful things that are being made and shared by our community. From fun fall projects to classic Christmas projects, we have it all to show you! Some of the great new dies, like the Slimline Santa Dies, made an appearance this week. If you are a scrapbooker, then there are some fantastic ideas below for you.

Come take a look around!

Shellie shared, “My first Halloween Treat Bag, ‘Frankie Dude!’ The Spooky, and Brights Matte Foiled Cardstocks are dreamy (even though I struggled to get best photo)! I like how the little inlay corners of the spider web frame are like candy corn!”

Donna shared, “Strike up the band and let the festivities begin! I’m enjoying the new Retro Santa Stickers and the Slimline Santa Dies. Simply adorable!”

That striped hat is too cute!

Diane said, “Our family has lots of birthdays in October & November. I spent yesterday making gift card holders using Anna’s Falloween Gift Card Holders Set. Perfect for Fall B-Days!”

Michele wrote, “Made some cards this week with the Christmas Wishes kit. Not much time to craft these days due to taking care of my husband so looking for things I can make quickly. I went back to the Trimming Border Cut and Emboss Folders. One layer in vellum and a second layer in gold matte foil is a quick way to dress up a collage card topper.”

Thea said, “I’m helping add some cheer to your day with my pink Christmas card!”

Such a cheerful card with the Christmas Kitsch Papercrafting Kit!

Eve posted, “I am using the Christmas for All paper collection and CAH3 borders and frame dies, along with various trees. I love making the nutcracker and ballerina from the Christmas Characters decoupage dies.”

Great idea to add the characters to your scrapbook pages!

Diane shared, “The Madonna and Child die set is absolutely exquisite. Anna and team, you designed a meaningful and tasteful icon of the season and more. I gave Our Lady some pretty poinsettias to celebrate the season.”

Leslie said, “Having way too much fun with the Halloween Flower cart kit. It’s like being a kid again and playing with “ paper dolls “ … remember? Not done yet and ? Pink for Halloween? YES it’s my BFF favorite color.”

Lillian wrote, “Having fun in Finishing school, made the three projects for the quilted purse dies, here’s one of them.. great tips, I enjoyed the class.”

Gorgeous purse!

Arlene shared, “Had so much fun making this “witchy room” using the Vignette Card die set .I really like the desk and the small picture frames in the set. For the images in the picture frames used the Halloween Rub On Embellishments. The lady of the house is from the Witchy Card Making Kit.”

Nora posted, “I used the Cornucopia Dies to make an invitation card for Thanksgiving dinner. All Anna Griffin dies except for the little gnomes.”

This is so creative Nora!

I ordered the Madonna and Child die on craft day and can’t wait to get it. I’m already done with my Christmas cards for this year but have already started for next year. I always wait on craft days for Anna because I always buy her products. I’m never disappointed!
