Craftspiration- December 15th, 2022
We ooh-ed and ahh-ed over this week’s amazing holiday crafting projects! With only 10 days to go until Christmas, and 3 days until Hanukkah we’re in the final stretch for sending cards. We know that as you scroll through the cards and projects that were shared today, you will be filled with joy and be inspired by the wonderful talents of our crafting community.
Come see what was made by our talented fans this week!
Susan said, “Finished this today to get in the mail for my nephew!”
Natasha shared her gorgeous Hanukkah cards!
Thea posted, “One of my square cards.”
Nora said, “I finally opened the Carte Noel finishing school kit. And I enjoy crafting with it. So many possibilities to use to create something beautiful. My first card is going to the management of the property I call home too. Thank you Anna for helping me look professional.”
Linda wrote, “Finished our Hanukkah cards, now back to the last of our Christmas cards. Thank you Anna for making the dies and kit for our friends who celebrate Hanukkah!”
Heidi shared, “Two more. Still need to glue. When you put together the colors and the topper makes it pop and you just gasp in how it comes to life. LOVE it!”
Pam said, “Made another Christmas card with the Vintage Christmas card toppers. Love them with an addition of a couple of embellishments you have a simple but pretty card.”
Jennifer shared, “Love this Simply Christmas card kit! Quick and easy, yet beautiful cards!”
Thank you for sharing your lovely cards!
Sharon wrote, “Trying to play catch up after being sick for two and a half weeks. Family cards.”
Hope you are feeling better, friend!
Karenbeatrice posted, “I made this tag for an Office Manager of a Real Estate Company. I made her an Easel House Card and this kept with the theme. Lots of fun adding different elements. I embossed the brick and sanded it.”
Sonya said, “I made this card for a friend who has a fireplace very much like this with a large clock sitting on it. I hope they like it.”
Nita posted, “It has been so long since I posted photos I forgot how to do it!”
Yolanda shared, “Hello my crafty friends. I’m enjoying the creativity of designing with Anna’s beautiful papers. These are for tailors who are good friends. They’ve never seen this style card from me so this will be a wonderful surprise.”
Jimmie shared, “I Hope this Holiday Season finds you all well and brings you joy and great times with your friends and family!”
Frankie said, “Another quick 3D gift card holder using the house from the Holiday Gift Tag Dies and the box and side panels from the castle ornament from the 3D Paper Ornament Dies. I like this one because I could add a few candies inside the box. I made the box but flipped it so the top of the box with the ornament tab was on the bottom and the bottom of the box that had a tab that allows the box to open and close was on the top. The side panels for the castle ornament gave the gift tag house a completed look. I added the gift card holder to the inside of the back of the house and since it’s higher than the box, the gift card was easy to add and remove. I added a few treats and it’s ready to give!”
This is the perfect gift!
Sherry said, “Hopefully this is the last of my Christmas Cards for 2022. I couldn’t resist marrying the glorious angel with the Amaryllis die cuts.”
Dayle posted, “Had so much fun making gift tags from Anna’s AGTV class. I love how the collage toppers and ribbons came together. I did get carried away with decorating the back of the tags. So I will be using sentiment stickers on the package. But this way the tags can be used again if the recipient so chooses to.”
Each one is more beautiful than the next.
Diane said, “One of my last cards going to our great nephew for his very first Christmas.”
The trees for wheels is too cute!
Such lovely cards everyone. Such inspiration. Happy Holidays to all have a Blessed Season and 2023 😘
I love everybody’s projects-so festive and fun-but I really loved Sherry’s card with the Angel and Amaryllis. Beautiful!
for all you do!
Merry Christmas to you and your crew…

Every card is a stunning winner.
Oh my! I am in awe of everyone’s beautiful, inspiring makes. I am still so far behind. Thanks for sharing. Happy, blessed holidays everyone!
I am so inspired! Immediate family are getting Christmas trains – I mailed out 38 christmas box creations and everyone says they are beautiful/ lovely/ amazing. I wish I had taken more pictures as my Hanukah cards went out in a rush, hand delivered mostly. I am very proud of those!
So fun seeing all the creativity! I just finally opened the train die and it is awesome. Made a birthday card for a friend’s grandson and put Santa as the engineer! She loved it! Thanks for sharing.
I am honored to have one of my cards, on here. I ran into the kitchen to show my husband and totally forgot we have family visiting from Iowa and California. And I shared with them my excitement.
Thank you Anna Griffin, for helping me create some beautiful cards.
Oh these are all so festive. Thanks for sharing
Loved seeing the pretty creations you provided for us.
Sonya I think your card is great. Diane the train turned out amazing.
So much talent!
Beautiful Christmas cards! Thank you for sharing!
Amazing and talented group of crafters
Great inspiration for this newbie! Is there anyone in the Bloomington MN area who might be interested in starting a Griffinite group? Or is there one already?
Everyone’s creations are beautiful! Always an inspiration to all!
Yolanda, I love the dapper gentlemen cards!
I’ve enjoyed seeing everyone’s creations. There are so many options! ❤️
Beautiful work ladies! I mailed all 50 of mine already and forgot to take some pics. Oh well! All the ornaments and books have been mailed too.
To ALL of you; CRAFTSPIRATION on thursdays has been one of my favorites on Anna’s blog. Today is no exception. So much fun to see how talented you all are. Thanks to the team Anna has and her designs, we can do this.
Anna, I would really 💕 💗 LOVE if you could make die set that has a lantern on an outside pole that we could use with all the lovely greenery you have given us through the years.
Oh so pretty 😍 and very creative ❣
So impressive…love all of these wonderful creations.
All the cards are lovely. I especially like the train cards, they style is great for a young child or a grown man.
Everything here is just super, but I must say the cards for the tailors are the bomb. So many talented people on here today!
Good items to try.
Wow these are all beautiful cards. Thank you for sharing and brightening my day and inspiring me to make my holiday cards.🎄
WOW! absolutely wondeerful..
Merry Christmas to All!
As usual, gorgeous cards. So many talented people out there. Beautiful! 🥰
I want to make more Christmas cards now! I thought I was done, but these are so beautiful that I have to make more! For next year!
So many talented works.
Thank you for sharing.
Inspiration on display!
I was looking at everything again a 2nd & 3rd time and noticed the 1st picture of the train from Susan. Susan looks like you only used the engine on the train and also looks from what I can tell that you made it 3D correct? Did you put like a box between and cut 2 of the engines and attach them to the box? That is so creative to make it look like a read toy train. I am sure you nephew will cherish this.
Wow, what gorgeous and clever ideas! I am definitely inspired to keep crafting!
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
Once again, incredible crafting! So much craftspiration!
Thank you for sharing.
Such talented crafters. You have all given me such good ideas!
I just LOVE all of today’s beautiful inspiration. So much Holiday joy. I love being able to scroll through these over and over again. Everyone does such a wonderful job.
I will mail out the last of my Christmas cards today. And a surprise Birthday gift for a friend that Anna introduced me to virtually at Create Crop@Home 2. So much fun to send Happy Mail to someone.
Beautiful cards and gift tags!
I resolve to be crafting Christmas cards throughout the year, so more will get a beautiful card from me, made with Anna’s amazing supplies! 🎄
Wonderful projects shared. It’s always fun and inspirational to see the same products used in so many creative ways.
Well done everyone. 👏👏👏
All just inspiring and beautiful!
All beautiful. Clever use of the foil flourishes for train “steam”! My Christmas cards this year are the Carte Noel townhouses. As always, once I mailed them I started to receive calls from the recipients. Comments ranged from beautiful to stunning to “all that hard work”. 😋🎄❄️ Of course I didn’t correct them on that last comment. Using the gingerbread explosion boxes for stockings. Enough room for lottery tickets, gift cards and sweet treats. What a fun time of year. Ahhh! It’s great to be a Griffinite.
I love this blog! The inspiration is so wonderful. The ideas are amazing. I get so inspired to do more crafting. Thank you all for sharing. Happy Holidays to all.
Each card more beautiful than the last viewed. Wonderful creations all! Merry Christmas,! Happy Hanukkah and New year to all!
Beautiful creations everyone!
Wow such fabulous cards and tags. Frankie – I especially love how you did the gift card box and paired it with the ornament box for treats, what a creative idea. I am going to start working on a few Happy New Year cards, I have a few ideas from all the inspirations this month that everyone has shared with us and hope to share a few of those with everyone. Happy Holidays one and all.
Amazing talented people. Beautiful!
Hello Anna and team! It’s another wonderful day of amazing talent and inspiration. All the projects are stunning! 😊
Wish you would lower the Hanukkah price
What a wonderful selection of paper ‘eye Candy’. I haven’t finished our cards, yet, and got some wonderful ideas. Loved seeing the Hanukkah cards – I did get those done, but more ideas for next year. Big Aloha to all who shared. Thank you for the Finishing School tutorials and AGTV! Really looking forward to New Beginnings, next week. AGTV IS always a treat!!! Happy holidays to Anna and her talented team. 🌺
Hello Anna & All the Griffinites
