Craftspiration – April 6th, 2023
It’s the Thursday before Easter, and we have lots of pretty projects to share with you on today’s Craftspiration. From vintage bunnies to sugar eggs and more, we love seeing how you use all of the tools, papers and embellishments in your crafting arsenal to create the most magical projects. You truly inspire us all with your incredible creativity!
Here’s a look at what you all made and shared this week!
Yvonne said, “On Friday I was a guest artist for Artists Day at the Hillcrest Intermediate School in Irwin PA. I demonstrated rubber stamping with embossing powder and Kirigami die cutting. It was for 5th and 6th graders. 14 class periods, each session 20 minutes long. The day just passed by extremely fast! Had over 350 students coming thru…shew! Here is a group of the Kirigami die cuts I made. I left all the samples with the Lead Art Teacher.”
What a wonderful thing to share your talents with students, Yvonne.
Nora shared, “I purchased the flower cart dies specifically to make my mother a birthday card. She LOVES flowers and this kit was perfect! I made project 6 of the finishing school classes, but used a Costa Rican “carreta” wheel as an homage to our heritage.”
Thank you for sharing, Nora! Love the wheels.
Teresa posted, “I enjoyed using the Gothic 3D Concentric Layer Dies with the Crosses set this Easter!”
Tina said, “Easter card using all Carte Noire flowers and rub ons for the card. Also, the Cardcentric Compendium Dies.”
Gay Lynn wants to wish you all Easter greetings!
Jennifer wrote, “I am working with foil flourishes.”
Eve posted, “Another scrapbook page. I was playing with the various fan dies to see what I could do with them. I ended up using the mini French fan dies to create a curtain border. Then I cut out one side of the fan pop-out die to add a decorative arch to the photo. The lower border was created using the folding screen die set from Create 8.”
Pretty page! We’re getting so excited for Crop at Home 3!
Tracy shared, “This is an Easter card I made for my sister in law who lives in another state.”
Joy said, “I called this one the gazebo florist.”
Janice wrote, ” I am having so much fun creating with my new jacket die. I have found so many different ways to use it…..I’m trying to send Anna a card every month for fan mail Friday so I will be sending her this one. I call it a pop-n-stand for lack of a better name. It folds down flat to fit in an envelope for mailing and then when you pull it out of the envelope, it pops up!”
Mary shared, “I have been playing with the new box cards dies. They’re fun to make, and people seem to be very impressed with them. (They don’t know that the boxes aren’t hard to make.) I really enjoy doing them. Looking forward to getting the new scoring board so I can make gift boxes to hold them.”
Sherry said, “Although I have made many Easter Cards using the Jacket die I had not made one like the card Anna demonstrated on AGTV. Here is my AGTV Easter Egg Jacket card. It was easy to make and I think I had a smile on my face the whole time I was creating it. Oh, and yes, let’s not forget the pearls!!”
We’re so glad that enjoyed making it! That’s what we like to hear!
Diane posted, “Today I received my A.S. Simply Congratulations Card Kit. After watching Anna on the Cardcentric Compendium Die video, I decided to mix and use on the Simply card kit. I layered both of them using the A2 dies from the set.”
So much talent I am blown away every Friday.
I love the scrapbook page! It’s just beautiful! I really needed the inspiration for a scrapbook I’m making for a very special lady. Thank you!

I love them all – every set, card sets, papers & dies! But right now my favorite one is the Flower Cart set and dies! Such a Gorgeous card! I am a flower/rose lover. Seeing these cards makes me happy and they are so beautiful to share with friends and family. I also love the 3d flower/rose dies, such a wonderful idea. Thank you & staff for making such lovely cards for us to get ideas from. They are ALL Stunning! I got to see my first live yesterday and I really loved it and seeing all of your and staffs creations! Crafty Hugs, Christal
All gorgeous. Love what was created with the Kirigami dies. And so much ambition to create all of the beautiful sugar eggs.
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL INSPIRING FUN! SO MANY GREAT IDEAS! I love seeing how everyone puts their own different spin on your products. So interesting & fascinating to see how many different endless ways each die set can turn out, be used, altered or combined with others. How each individual uses, cuts apart & modifies your dies, embossings, engravings, stickers, embellishments & cardstock to create completely new & different things. Has me firing up the Empress to do some fun playing too. HUGS! YOU ARE LOVED!👋🧚♀️🦢🦢💐💗🌸🥚🐣🐥🐇🐰🕊🐦🌿🌱👏👸
Thanks for sharing the bird house banner! There were SO many beautiful things posted! I am honored to be included with all this talent. I loved the explosion box by Colleen and Cindi’s sugar egg. Have a blessed weekend!

Wow! Each week gets better and better! So many ideas!
Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
Splendid makes everyone! Happy Resurrection Day, dear crafters!
Very nice ladies! I’ve been playing with the purse dies and it was fun to make one for a friend who is turning 80. I slipped a nice restaurant gift card into the purse box. I used the teal and black metallic cardstocks with the pale blue flowers. Also made a special card to go with it from the Big Celebration Birthday Kit with the same flowers. I had wished the purse dies came with separate dies for the end handle pieces and the ornate buckle piece. They were quite a bear to cut out separetly. I did cut them out in gold like the purse above, but having a die for those extra pieces would have taken less time and been easier. I’m on the auto ship for these purses and I hope they have those smaller pieces included with dies. Thanks for listening!
I love all the beautiful work! So insipring!
There are so many beautiful cards today. I love my mornings when I can grab a cup of coffee and my iPad and open my Anna Griffin mail. Thanks to all for sharing and Happy Easter. Remember, it’s not about the bunny, it’s about the Lamb.
Everyone had such fantastic things this week!! So many wonderfully different ideas!
Thank you for sharing your talents and inspiring all of us!
Y’all just amaze me. Someday I’ll have time to relax and craft. In the process of moving and didn’t realize how exhausting it was going to be to move ourselves.
LOVE all the wonderful creations!
What beautiful creations! Happy Easter everyone!
Everything is lovely and filled with the joy of Spring!
Oh love all of these. So inspirational and fulfilling to see the talents that using Anna’s products brings out in so many people. Love all the paper choices too.
An amazing display of talent and craftsmanship this week. It’s like a candy store for paper crafters!
Well done everyone!
Just absolutely beautiful 😍
Everything is so beautiful! Lots of talent to be found here!
I just LOVE Craftspration Thursday. It truly does inspire me. I have scrolled through these several times since posted on Thursday. I must say to Cindi that you are very talented at fussy cutting. I don’t think I could cut out those layers on the Sugar Egg die like you did. Bravo.
Thank you ALL for sharing your talent and beauty. Always impressed with the way Anna’s products mix and match across the years. TIMELESS BEAUTY!!!
