Craftspiration- September 14th, 2023

Hi friends,

Creativity abounds on today’s Craftspiration. Holiday crafting is in full swing and that includes many different holidays. You will find Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas on display below from our community of wonderful crafters. Below are just a handful of beautiful cards and projects that have caught our eye today. We love seeing your gorgeous projects posted on our social media channels.

Let’s admire all of the beauty below!

Judy said, “Getting an early start to my holiday cards as I’m anticipating surgery and I’m just loving the Stained Glass Dies! I used two different holographic cardstocks to capture the light behind the stained glass for the Christmas cards along with the small wreath from the Carte Noel which fit beautifully to highlight the clear gem in the top circle. The corner dyes drew the eye down to the stained glass. For the Hanukah cards, I used gilding flakes for the backing and the beautiful Hanukah dies. Just love thinking of new ways to use and combine Anna’s gorgeous dies!”

Barbara shared, “I made this Wishing Well Birthday card after making one from Finishing School. The last AGTV show and Finishing School helped me to understand how to use the embellishments in this kit! I know my Mother-in-law will love it. Thank you for all these awesome kits!”

Gorgeous card!

Terry shared, “Well, hello pumpkins! How pretty you are! My debonair vampire friends, Drac and Vlad, are ready to fly out with the mail. They’re traveling light, so they left the coffins behind and are flying flat in economy class. The inside “singable” sentiment is below in the reply comments, with a nod to ZZ Top.”

This Anna Griffin Inc. Salon Nouveau + the newly launched Black Matte Shiny Foil Cardstock Bundle collab was like A LOT of fun to create! Salon Nouveau Finishing School goes great with Anna’s black shiny cardstock – like peanut butter & jelly = meant to be together!”
