Craftspiration- September 28th, 2023

Hello Griffinites,

Can you believe that we have arrived at the end of September? It brings us such joy to see your fall cards (and all others!) on display below. Each week we wait with eager anticipation to see just what you will come up with next! It is also a treat to see some of the sneak peek items from our AGTV shows appear; we spy a festive  Slimline Santa card and a couple of beautiful Madonna and Child Dies cards! There are so many great ideas below, and we know that you will find the fresh inspiration from our crafting community absolutely wonderful.

Let’s see what was shared this week!

Joyce said, “My Sunday share is a Thanksgiving Flower Cart easel card. Everything is from Anna’s Haunted Flower Cart Embellishments. Love what everyone is sharing today. Awesome cards!”

Gorgeous fall flower cart, Joyce!

Shellie shared, “Not haunted, only happy, the ‘Slimline Santa’ sounds like a great name for a gift-giving gnome-sweet-gnome here in North Texas! I loved your cardmaking with your newest die set on last week’s AGTV, Anna! Both the calendar and his golden drum-beat tell us it’s just 92 days til Christmas. I have made and embellished a former CREATE die set ‘All Boxed In’ for a perfect gift box for a pair of GNOME socks for my daughter.”

Diane posted, “This week I worked on a few cards using Anna’s Vintage Fall Decoupage Cutouts. There are really adorable pop out pictures that can be 3D layered. I embossed the background on champagne colored Matte Foil, layered the turkey, added a sentiment & a Falloween pre-tied bow. Simple & fun!”

Sherry said, “Here’s Another Sunday Share. Just finished this Madonna and Child Die Christmas card. I received my dies yesterday and couldn’t wait to make a card. I promised myself to finish one project before jumping to another. This die set gave me incentive to finish my scrapbook page below. Thank you Anna for providing dies that create cards with such clarity, dimension and detail.”
So glad that you love the new dies!

Barbara wrote, “I have been creating my own embellishments all week with various dies and some of your old glitter cardstock. I did use some shiny silver because I am limited on the matte. They are turning out great. This is just a start as I am trying to make them into collections for cards and scrapbooking.”
Your Baubles and Branches ornaments are incredible!

ALL well done! My Halloween and Thanksgiving cards are DONE! Have started on Christmas and see that there is new Christmas items to be had. Oh, woe is me!

What a nice array of cards shared this week. Inspires me to try some new ideas. Thanks for posting my Happy Thanksgiving turkey card.

I noticed there’s a lot of Diane’s…must have been a popular name for a certain era of time. I’m curious if we are all in our 70’s? LOL

Diane Pinkston

Such creative people making these cards. Thank you for the fun ideas.

Diane Vadino

Anticipation is on over load. If the sneak peeks are just the start we are in for a treat and not tricks!🎃🙀


The cards were particularly stunning this week. I loved the color work and inlays that were done. Marie’s card stood out with the yellow background on the haunted house.
Thank you everyone for sharing your with us.
