Hello crafty friends,
Today’s Craftspiration post is full of ingenuity! While looking at all of your projects we couldn’t help but say, “that’s such a good idea!” From upcycling stationery with our rub on transfers like Yadyra to pairing Santa with our Hot Air Balloon Easel Dies like Luana and Penny, you all have some fantastic crafting ideas! Get ready to be inspired; we certainly are!
Mother’s Day is May 9th and Benji is “making Mother’s Day cards.”
Laura said, “I love Anna’s China Cabinet Card kit. Anna, I hope more of these are brought back. The pink layer is from personal doilies. I used one of Anna’s Birthday Toppers with the cake and flowers. I used the China Cabinet die cut and the embossing folder for the rose pink metallic.”
Yadyra shared a great idea! “Yesterday I gave my stationery a facelift by adding rub-ons on the corners. I love how they look now!” ❤😍
Belinda said, “During National Craft Month I posted a Mystery Card! Here it is! My niece loved it!”
We love your slimline card, Suravi!
Marlane shared, “LOVING the playlist on Spotify! Perfect mix to relax and let the Inner Creative flow!! Thank you!!”
Terry said, “The Hot Air Balloon die & the Baby Cut & Emboss Folders make an adorable Welcome Baby card.” ❤
Gay Lynn made this pretty card for “a little support for a very sweet friend.”
Mary posted, “This was my first card using the Anniversary dies. When I put it together I thought it needed something more…I found a packet of pearl embellishments in my craft closet still in the bag with the receipt from 2018🙄( next project, some serious organizing). They turned out to be the perfect “something more.””
Our Finishing School friends Christine posted, “I love the tip of cutting a set of concentric dies in 3 different papers and then mixing and matching to create 3 unique cards. I gave it a go with Salon Nouveau, and I’m quite pleased with the results. I generally average about 3 hrs to create a card, but I got these 3 done in about 4 hours one afternoon last week. This clever idea is a time-saving home run for me when my card inventory is low.”
Say hello to Adelene! “Fairly new member of Finishing School. I have been busy making cards from the Wildflower Garden. I created 20 cards each one as beautiful as the one before. Thank you Ms. Anna.”
Luana said, “Penny Comeau and I have been talking about using the mini Santa’s with the hot air balloon die. So…yes, I totally stole her idea…and…yes she knows.”
Doris showed off her layout in our Finishing School Community. “I was trying to recreate Anna’s layout shown on HSN, it is my favorite, but doing it for Christmas.”
Adina shares, “Another labor of love! Two days of hard labor. Gave birth to conjoined twin pop-out cards.”
We can’t get enough of your projects! Seeing your creativity on display is such a joy and honor. As always, thank you for sharing your talents with us! Keep making and posting all of your cards, scrapbook pages and projects. We will share ones that catch our eye next week!
