Craftspiration- February 2nd, 2023
This week’s Craftspiration has so many great ideas! We are loving your valentines and seeing projects made with the new items from this past HSN visit. From unique flower carts to 3D projects, each one of these is beautiful! If you are looking for new composition ideas, scrapbook layouts and more, then you are in the right place!
Come take a look at some of the amazing projects that were shared
Vicki posted, “Made a special Valentine for my hubby for Sunday Share. This uses the Musical Icons Cut and Emboss folders for the instruments, a Card Base from one in my stash, and sentiments from Enchanted Vellum Card Toppers Kit. There’s a Baroque Concentric die cut behind there too!”
Fifi shared, “Taught a class with my girl-friends yesterday using the Valentine Rockers kit and we had a lot of fun!”
It sounds like you had a wonderful event!
Sally wrote, “The Enchanted 3D Concentric Dies made the perfect frames for my scrapbook layout. Over the years, Anna’s heart dies are always on my favorite list. These are too!”
Tracy said, “Living in a different state, I always send my mother photos in handmade cards, so I thought this would be a fun way to send a recent family photo to her. My mother really enjoys receiving anything Anna Griffin, so I know she will love a card made with the new, gorgeous Flower Cart kit . Thank you for creating this absolutely stunning set!”
Eve posted, “Some of the Valentines cards I’ve been making this week. Love the new slimline cut and emboss folders, especially the stacked hearts.”
Mary Beth said, “My sister-in-law loves pop-up! Found a version of this card on Pinterest – so this is for her this year!”
Heidi shared, “I did this Friday. It’s different haha. I put flowers upside down to fill in the space. Used the ice blue paper for the cart this time.”
Yvonne said, “Candy Box Valentine easel card made with the Enchanted 3D Concentric dies and a few other heart dies from my stash. Almost all the papers are Anna. Rose embellishment from Create8. The stopper was cut with a die from the Flower Cart. Sentiment printed from my laptop on white card stock. It reminds me of the old fashioned fancy candy boxes.”
Marie wrote, “I followed an idea I had to make the flower cart a wheelbarrow. I think it works, but what do you think?”
It definitely works; very creative!
Joyce posted, “This is the Valentine card I made for my granddaughter using Anna’s Slimline cut and emboss folders. The pictures are those of her daughters. I love making cards where I can use pictures.”
Kaye shared, “This is a simple card from the Birthday Slimline cardmaking kit. The gold feathers were made with a die from Anna’s Feather Cut & Emboss Dies. Those feather dies create beautiful added interest for cards. (The floral embellishments , I believe, were part of either the Create 6 or Create 7 boxes.)”
Mary said, “This is a Flower Cart birthday card I made for a friend. He works as a floral designer. I tried putting a more masculine spin on the cart design. The background paper is from the Handsome collection. There are two layers to the actual cart die cut. The first layer is from the bronze matte foil offset under the top layer that ended up being the peachy matte foil in Anna’s newest auto ship collection. The canopy is two additional layers to give some dimension. I had to include his white poodle fur baby in the design along with a kitty to balance it out.”
What a great, custom card!
Beth said, “This diorama card is for my husband Joe. A mixture of old and new dies and embellishments. I love how it all comes together. I added a pocket to the back for a removable signature card. I covered the spine with a Dresden border and trimmed it with tiny iridescent pearls. And finally pink ribbon to tie it closed.”
Sheri said, “I had a whole day of crafting yesterday. Love that you can mix and match Anna’s products. Fancy Flocked Card Layers mixed well and used a round sentiment that compliments the wheel shape.”
Barbara posted, “This took me several days to deign the base of the cart in Adobe Photo Shop, then cutting it out on My Cricut machine in craft board: Then running the Anna Griffin Flower cart Die though my Empress 5 times to have enough material to cover the entire project. The extras in the Flower cart cart kit made up the rest of the look.”
Sonya wrote, “I am working on my valentines from the Enchanted Vellum Toppers. Love this kit!”
Diane shared, “Using some of Anna’s heart dies mixing previous versions with newer ones but it never gets old.”
All very beautiful creations.
Shout out to Marie! I love to reimagine dies & your wheel barrow works! I honestly thought “Anna Griffin has new die!” before I read your note. So so so much inspiration for Valentine’s Day!
My card and box is up there! Valentines are just so pretty this year 😊
Love the border frame on the diaorama card. Have seen it several times lately. Can’t find it on your website. A I m missing it or is older than a year. If it’s older, please bring it back. It’s absolutely the cats meow. Love all the cards. Stay warm.
Love them all.

Every card is true inspiration. All the Flower Cart cards, valentine cards just spectacular. Beth your Diorama card is stunning.
Love all the ideas!
Love all the cards with inspirations for the flower cart. So many talented people sharing their works. Thank you.
such beautiful makings. How much it makes my head go…..you dont have that one, you needed to get that one lol lol lol I just love it all and do that most I can when adding to my collection. I love the card without the front stop. I often paint that style of cart….all seasons. Looks great with flowers, with veggies, with pumpkins and poinsettias….The cart is a four season item with many creations yet to come and inspire us. wow,…..but, I am thinking…..I will hold back on my cart until I see the Live. Then, I think the box will be gone in a couple days. lol thanks everyone for really inspiring us to use our tools…our fabulous dies.
All this inspiration is better than a box of chocolates. Every project is just yummy eye candy. And calorie free. A double win. 😅🤣😆
I love how photos were included, not just in a scrapbook page, but also in cards. BRILLIANT ideas.
I just LOVE Craftspration Thursday. It truly is the best blog of the week.
So many pretty creations! Joyce, I love your Valentine with the photos incorporated! Thanks everyone for sharing.
Thank you so much Anna for posting my Candy Box easel card with so many other beautiful projects! Inspiration from others is a lovely gift to share💝💝💝
Each and every card is just beautiful. I love the creativity.
So pretty! Thanks everyone for sharing and inspiring. AG products truly are magical and one cannot make a bad card with them. Simply stunning. This year is off to a great start and I can’t wait to see all the new products she has made for us.🙂
Beautiful cards today and so may clever ideas. I think that the flower cart is your best die yet. I can hardly wait for the flower shop.
Gorgeous Valentines 💝 thanks Anna.
I love the variations on the TS flower cart! So clever, creative, and inspirational.
So many pretties, great job everyone!
So Lovely! I love the photocards! I really want the heart concentric dies, I hope someday I can find a way to get them, they are really cute. I see FOMO alot in posts and I think that I have this when it comes to missing out on concentric dies.
Yay Griffinites 🙂
Just love the plant cart cards. Right now it is my favorite die. That could change but I had so much fun making these cards. I did one easel card but I like making the plant cart into a card that can open. I just know my friends are going to love these cards.
Wow! Amazing creativity here. Love all the inspiration.
Such a beautiful selections of Valentine cards. Great ideas from ALL!
Good day for inspiration!
Love the way some card makers mixed the “old” with the new. But of course nothing is ever “old” when working with the great items Anna has made over the years as everything goes so well with each item. I’ve made a few cards lately with AG123 from 2003 which I purchased on QVC when Anna first started selling kits on line. Think that was the first AG kit I bought & know I used it for my sons wedding pictures. Since it’s an “all about family” kit I only used it for family stuff up until this year when I spread out to friends getting cards with some of the items in it.
OMG SUCH GORGEOUS CREATIONS
Love all the cards showed here! Great job Ladies and thanks for the inspiration!
Everything sent in is beautiful! Love the scrapbook page.
Such beautiful and creative cards! Anna, thank you for giving us the tools to make these beautiful cards.
Wow I love craftspiration. I love getting ideas how to use the dies in different ways like the wheel barrow from the floer cart.💗💗
Love all the beautiful Valentines!
Love the 3 hearts photo card. Do a lot of photo cards for Christmas too.
Lovely cards everyone, such inspiration. Thank you for sharing.
