Craftspiration - September 21st, 2023

Hello friends,

We have had quite the creative week with HSN this past Monday and AGTV: Holiday Splendor yesterday (catch up on the show if you missed it here). Now, it’s time for your weekly crafty show and tell! We love seeing and sharing your projects each week, and you continue to deliver new, extraordinary projects week after week. From beautiful craft rooms to creative flower carts and Halloween galore, all of the inspiration you need is below!

Come take a look at what Griffinites have made this week.

Crystal said, “I started buying your products around 22 years ago. I then knew that I wanted a cream and gold craft room. I love all your products and though I have many out, there are many that you are put away in drawers and cabinets. But thank you for giving me the idea for the colors in my craftroom and all the wonderful products I have in it!”

What a wonderful space to be creative in!

Diane said, “My Compendium Die Set finally arrived so I could cut an oval for the Spiders & Specters Dies Halloween scene.  It turned out ‘spooky’ with Anna’s vellum ghost & spider webs, Black Matte Cardstock & Spooky Matte Foil orange.  It was fun putting together!”

Michele said, “My sisters and I moved all over the country. So when my mom got sick this summer, my one sister that was local basically put her life on hold and moved in with my mother and cared for her until the end. My other sisters and I wanted her to know how grateful we are for what she did. We decided to get her a gift card to use on a future trip. I offered to make a card because I could customize it to our situation. I love the heart from the Sweetheart Impression Dies. I find myself adding it to so many things.”
