Craftspiration- August 4th, 2022
If you haven’t been able to see all of the incredible things that our crafting community has created this week, never fear! We have compiled many of them here to share with you and inspire your crafting. Along with gorgeous everyday projects, we rounded out Christmas in July by showing off holiday projects on this past Sunday’s share on Facebook. Take notes today, because there are lots of ideas to inspire your projects!
Shirli said, “A helpful tip about bows. There are times when affixing foam squares to the loops is not practical, In these instances I use Penflair (silicone glue) to the back of the knot. Best to let it dry overnight though.”
Thanks for the tip!
Beth shared, “Today I made a baby card for a dear friend’s daughter who just recently gave birth to twin boys. I added a pocket to the back of the card to hold a gift card. AG products used in the making of this card : Hot Air Balloon Easel Dies, Baby’s Icon cut and emboss folders, mini pocket dies, By the Letter Dies, Celebration Chest stickers , Castle Card stock , Blue shiny foil card stock, yellow metallic card stock and matte gold card stock.”
Frances posted, “I had to get started on making these cards with the Hanukkah dies for my Jewish friends!”
These are lovely!
Dayle wrote, “I used Treillage card base, delicate engraving card toppers and 3 dimensional butterflies.”
Marie posted, “My sister wanted an anniversary card for their friends 60th. He’s a deacon at their church so the church easel is perfect.”
Maria shared, “Here is my first attempt at making a card using the Nativity Easel Dies. I added lights behind the star that turns on when you press on Jesus in the manger.”
What a beautiful card! Love how it lights up in such a gorgeous way.
Mary shard, “I used an Anna rosette and a sentiment from another kit to finish this page. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Anna had two Crop at homes a year?”
Ooh, that would be fun!
Great inspiration thank you for all the amazing ideas.
Love each and every shared Craftspiration here!😍👏🏼😍
I have made some of my favorite cards using Anna’s furs and embellishments and I will continue to because they are the BEST!!
Love e everything Anna Griffin. I am starting to get a nice set of papers but I would love to win the carte Noel finishing school set.
All of these little pieces of art are just gorgeous & so inspiring! The creativity is beyond anything I would have thought up. Kudos Griffinites! These are stunningly beautiful & you should be so proud. I just love these community that keeps growing, as more & more people falling in love with all things Anna Griffin!

Beautiful work done by everyone! The last Christmas card done by Gay Lynn is stunning. I’d love to know what die she used, that is beautiful. Thanks for all the inspiration.
Love all the cards and pages.
I am especially inspired with all the many dies used on these creations. There are so many different ways to use them. I have “die envy” here as I want them all.
These cards are ALL beautiful. I envy your talents, ladies. I need the inspiration you give.
Really beautiful !!!!
Loved all the cards! What a gorgeous scrapbook page!
The cards in today’s log are really lovely. Thanks to all who shared their work.
Truly amazing projects. Christmas inspiration galore.
Thank you to those of you who list the products you use. It is nice to know so if we want to purchase something you used we have the name of it.
Anna again BIG THANK YOU to you and your team who bring such beauty into my inbox. If not for this blog I would not be able to see these amazing works of art.
What a great job. I only hope to be as creative as these crafters. I am a new card making buddy and these cards are outstanding. Congratulations to all and thanks for sharing.
Thanks everyone for sharing!
Thank you everyone for sharing!!

I feel like such a slacker. All of you talented people have lit a fire under me. Starting tonight, I will be in craft mode. And each and everyone of you have made truly beautiful creations. Thanks for the inspirations!!!
All of the cards are simply beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
What an amazing collection of projects–something for everyone! tfs-stay well.
Absolutely gorgeous cards!! Would someone please identify the die used in the last card? I know I own it, but I don’t remember the name of the die which I really need in order to locate it! Thank you so much…
Did you post part 2 of the birthday cards?
I love the new arch. It’s on my list to get.
Can’t wait to try to make some China Cabinet Christmas cards as lovely as those shown here.
Oh, my!! I love, love, LOVE the Arch Die set. The Gazebo is my all-time favorite, so this one would be second in line. Would love to win it.
Thanks, Anna. Have a blessed day!
Wow, every card was so stunning!
These are indeed an incredible group of cards, mostly holiday which were beautiful. Great ideas everyone!
Beth, my dear friend, the way you combined the balloon with the twin giraffe’s .. just so adorable!! <3
Love love love the Hanukkah set, also love the air balloon with the giraffe in it!
Senses overload!! Where do I start. They are all so beautiful, unique, gorgeous. I can not say anything more.
All the cards are beautiful. Reminds me I must get to working on Christmas cards. Thanks for the inspiration.
Thanks for sharing. Great inspiration..
Love, love, love!
All so creative and beautiful!!!
Beautifully crafted motivation for all ! Thanks to the contributors!
I love the old fashioned look of the Christmas cards. And the hot air balloon with the giraffes is adorable!
They are all so beautiful.
Such creativity! Every one is nicer than the last one. Congrats on the wonderful work to all who created these projects.
Always love seeing the creativity that comes from our crafting community.
WOW! So many talented people and fantastic cards❣️
Those are some beautiful cards. Very talented individuals. I’m so happy that you shared these cards with us.
all the cards are beautiful
Such talent!! Thank you for sharing so many beautiful works of heart.
Beautiful! Inspires me to start Christmas. Love the nativity with a light. Anyone know where you get those lights. I thought that was a great idea.
What an incredible display of gorgeousness 😍😍😍
Beautiful cards! I’ve been making cards from the Witchy kit for Halloween. But using the small foam squares on larger pieces like the dresses is time consuming. How about making 1” foam strips to cover more area & still give the raised look. It would be quicker & easier & less backing to pull off.
OMG! They are all beautiful. Good job everone!
Spectacular❣ I’m impressed by all of you talented people. I haven’t even made one Christmas card yet, 😕 but will have to get busy this weekend. Thanks for all the inspiration 🥰
Wow! These cards are beautiful. Thank you for sharing them. I’ve only been doing the cards since March and I am learning so much from viewing these amazing cards. All are so creative!
Hi I wanted to know if you will be doing a demonstration for the Kirigami dies. Please let me know if you did already where I can find the video. (It’s not on an HSN video I checked).
I am so inspired to get started on my Christmas cards.🎄 All of todays projects are so beautiful.
These cards are unbelievably gorgeous. Thanks to all the contributors and to you for posting them for all of us. The inspiration is just overwhelming. What wonderful talent and gifts these Griffinites have.

Thank you, Griffinites, for your creative cards. You all have inspired me to have fun in my craft room!
Stunningly beautiful creations! I would love to have the Nativity easel cards in a card kit. I just finished making some cards with the mini nativity dies. Very excited to be sending those cards this December.
Beautiful cards, need to get busy with Christmas cards.
Wonderful wonderful cards!
Kudos to the Craft team for designing the snow people this year. They are so fun to work into our cards. They always put a smile on your face. Love them and the new Christmas box.
All the cards are lovely.
There are so many beautiful cards today. It truly inspires me to get busy on Christmas cards; other cards too, but especially the Christmas cards caught my eye.

Good morning Anna,
Thank you for sharing all the beautiful cards everyone has created. So talented and inspiring!
God Bless each one of you!
Love all the cards!! Thanks for inspiring me to work on Christmas cards in August. Love them all
Everyone made beautiful cards. Great ideas. Thank you for sharing and giving us inspiration and ideas for our own.🤗
All the cards are so lovely. I will be copying them.
Terry’s Rococo card and Marilyn’s Atlanta Brave’s card are my favorite here! I’m an Atlanta Brave’s fan too, but would never have thought of making a train card like this one! All the cards are beautiful! Good job ladies and gents!
What die was used on the last card with the wreath? Is it an Anna Griffin die and if so, is it still available? The card is very elegant!
It looks like Anna Griffin’s 3D Baroque Frame Die, currently available on her website. Also love that wreath and deep red bow against the gold!!
Thank you so much for your response Teresa! I appreciate it!! Everything about the card is exquisite.
everything is absolutely beautiful.
Some really great ideas for Christmas cards.
Have to give a shout out to Beth and Marie- Louise!
Absolutely gorgeous ladies. Thanks for sharing.
Oh wow, wow! Keep the creations coming! I am so inspired this week!! Happy crafting everyone! ❤
Hello Anna, & All the Griffinites
Another beautiful group of projects for all year long. Anyone would love to receive any one of these cards. Blessings
You have some very talented customers! GORGEOUS.
Happy Craftspiration, Anna! Family health emergencies have kept me busy this summer and, therefore, I have not had an opportunity to start my Christmas cards. Today’s beautiful posts have certainly put me in the mood and I look forward to getting started as soon as possible. A shout out to Beth – I adore your ‘twins’ card – soooo adorable!
Thank you, Anna, for sharing the amazing talents of your followers/friends. Your blog truly uplifts my day. ❤️
Thank you Karen for your kind comments.

Love all the examples
Beautiful works from the heart of crafters ❤️
