Buckle up, buttercup because today’s Craftspiration is here to inspire you and encourage you to get out your papers, adhesive, dies and embossing folders and get to work! Crafting is a great way to de-stress and to let your imagination turn supplies into works of art! Here are some of the projects that we ooh-ed and ahh-ed over this week!
Our Finishing School friend Marie posted, “When Beth posted her hat treat box I was reminded of a Cricut file I had of a hat easel card and box. So this is what I came up with which is a mix of Anna paper and dies and the ease of cutting with my Maker.”
Jane said, “I posted this a few days ago but I found these wedding rings and added an upgrade to the card. I think the rings put a finishing touch on this card.”
Yolanda created this beauty and said, “Hi crafty friends. It’s so gratifying to work all week with my team, and then create beautiful cards for them over the weekend. I have a few anniversaries to celebrate so here’s what I’ve created.”
Adina posted in Finishing School, “This was a labor of love. I love all of these dies. It is a combination of the Intricate Pop out dies, the Tassel dies, and the Album dies. The bride is carrying her mother’s three tiered antique lace handkerchief, a strand of her grandmother’s pearls, and a 3-D bouquet of painstakingly fussy cut and decoupaged miniature roses from the wreath in the Bunny Die Cuts. She has tiny gold beads sewn into her hair. The tassel layer detail attached to the base die cuts was a small afterthought that I am now obsessed with. It was like the final exclamation point at the end of a sentence. Sending “Wedding Wishes” to you, my dear bride!”
Carla said, “My first Lily card for a friends 30th Anniversary!”
Carri “Created from the die cutting tips and tricks finishing school class. I discovered something very important…I don’t have any sentiment stickers outside of Christmas. So instead I used bows and butterflies. Overall, educational and tons of fun. Also, I would like to share this was the inaugural running of my new empress machine. Love.”
