Craftspiration – January 26th, 2023
Hello crafty friends,
It’s hard to believe that January is coming to a close, but we can’t help but be excited for Valentine’s Day! There’s just something about all of the pretty pinks, reds and hearts that go into making projects filled with love! We had some wonderful projects shared across our social media channels this week, and it’s time to share them with you!
Come take a look!
Vicki said, “I’m making valentines for my Sisters in Law along with birthday and thinking of you cards this week. Anna Griffin Inc. products make gorgeous cards so easy. Thin 3/8ths inch Velcro Hook and Loop is my new favorite that I picked up from the Gatefold Finishing School Class. I watch all of the Finishing school classes because I ALWAYS pick up something new!”
Clare posted, “All Anna except the stamp set. I really struggled to use this stamp set and thought I would try it with Anna Griffin and now I am so happy with the results.”
Arlene wrote, “Love Victorian lady images so worked them into Anna’s Perfect Pattern Slimline cut and emboss folder with the diamond pattern and embossed on vellum. Also used the Boiserie card stickers for the first time.”
Julia shared, “This is an Irish themed birthday card that I made on Friday for one of my best friends who is extremely Irish. I’m not giving it to her till it’s closer to her birthday, but I didn’t want to put off making it because life always gets in the way of the things that I need to do.”
Nancy said, “A birthday card for my 8-year-old ballet student. All AG on a shimmer card.”
Ellen posted, “Made my pulley card Valentine for my hubby.”
Cynthia wrote, “My first flower cart is a Valentine ‘cause it’s Valentines 24/7 for me right now.”
Gay Lynn posted, “Mixing some older elements with newer ones.”
Thea said, “I’m just in love with all the Anna Griffin Valentine goodies we have to choose from! I tried to change up the traditional red or pink for this Valentine card.”
Mary Beth wrote, “Last of the Valentines for 2023…February without Valentines…would be like, I don’t know – January??”
Heidi, said, “My first card from the kit.”
Tracy posted, “I fell so in love with the Neoclassical Dies that I decided to purchase the Baroque Dies and I’m glad I did . These 3D dies are extraordinary! And I used dies from Anna’s Explosion Box Die set to frame the photo.”
Terry posted, “A special Valentine for my one & only I love the Gazebo Cut & Emboss dies & use them for numerous occasions. Other elements: Couple from the Ballroom Slider dies, paper from the Heirloom Lace collection.”
Shellie said, “What a luxe Valentine, Anna Griffin Inc. , with all the shimmer & shine, all the flourish & frills! You’ve inspired us all! Today, at my craft-spot, it’s a pair in purple, or rather, lovely lavender for a pair of lovely ladies in my husband’s family, celebrating birthdays this month. Your Cake Easel made and shown earlier for AGTV- Birthday Wishes inspired my card at left, using a favorite double-sided cardstock and my very favorite Lavender Metallic–which I REALLY would like and request in 25-pak; and, your Celebrations Collage Toppers and layers inspired my card at right (both are instantly embellished with some of my favorite embossing folders ‘Thistle Tiles,’ and ‘Rose Toss,’ respectively). Anna-cards may easily upstage birthday cake…!”
Annie Laura said, “Here the few Valentines I have completed. The pink metallic hearts hearts have white glitter shadow and my red hearts have matter gold shadows.”
Beth posted, “Just had to make another . Getting into the spirit of Valentine’s Day . Here is my 3D version of the Flower Cart. Dies Used FS Flower Cart, Valentine cut and emboss folders, all four corners, lantern from the Carriage Dies and 3D decorative border dies.”
Diane wrote, “I used some fan die cuts and the petite French Fans dies.”
Eve shared, “Well I just had to ink the flower cart die to see what I’d get. Added one of the Victorian ladies die cuts. They just purchased the flower basket and are walking away happy.”
Shirli shared her Enchanted Hearts card.
Barbara shared, “The use of Anna’s beautiful teal floral paper with hints of gold and pearls. “Happy Valentine’s Day””

Wow! Such beautiful cards! Thanks for sharing!
All these cards are so beautiful, so glad you share them with us for inspiration. Been busy making Valentine cards from your kits. I like your new heart die I purchased from HSN. Soon to work on some scrapbooking projects.
All are gorgeous but I love Eve’s flower cart card and Beth’s 3D card as well. You all have inspired me so. Thank you.
Beautiful cards. Thanks for sharing.m
Hello Anna & Greetings to all the Griffinites
So many stunning creations for inspiration! I especially love what Eve did with the paper dolls xoxo It could be a sister or best girlfriend card too!
Wow!!!! Everyone is stunning!!!! I need more Snooty Victorian Ladies!!!
All these are very Pretty. I Love them all.
That 3 d flower cart is amazing! Just love it!
Love seeing all the precious works on here
Y’all sure are “thinking outside the box” and have elevated inspiration to new levels! Beautiful card and projects!! ❤️

So many outstanding, gorgeous projects! Beth’s 3D cart is amazing.
Everything is just beautiful! And that 3D flower cart is an heirloom quality work of art ❤️!
So many beautiful Valentine cards this week & all well done.
Have to say I really love Julia’s Birthday card for her friend – simple but really really pretty. Really like the way she placed her layers without overdoing it. Sometimes the ones we put less into come out best. Hope her friend enjoys it as much as I loved it – which I’m more then sure she will.
Stunning cards, isn’t Valentine’s the most romantic cards we make all year. I love what every one did. Beauty over the moon… I am having so much fun making Valentine cards I forgot I have to address and get these out by the first. Yikes.
I’m speechless! All so beautiful, and Beth…say no more, it’s just stunning.
Thanks all for sharing…
Love making valentine/galentine card.
Loved seeing the beautiful projects.
What beautiful offerings for the season; so nice to see the flowers emerging on the cards people are making.
Jaw open and gawking at these beautiful creations from so many talented crafters. Thanks to all for sharing. I’m inspired to try them and enjoy the effort even if they don’t look as good.
All such beautiful cards, thanks everyone for sharing and inspiring.
What kit are the Victorian ladies in? I don’t know how I missed them….I love all things Victorian. Are they still available? Thank you Anna and team for the community you have brought together, and all the creative ladies who share their visions.
I love how creative the Anna Griffin community is. So wonderful to see. And the color palette to these projects are amazing! Beth’s project is breathtaking (always).
Love all the cards!! Thanks for sharing ❤️
So much seeing what everyone makes!
I have pictures this time! Beautiful, talented crafters! Bravo, Shirli. Nice work.
Everyone made such beautiful projects. Beth Turchi is truly amazing and I am loving the Flower Cart dies. I haven’t tried them yet, since I am making another album from Create; really enjoyed that project, but every flower cart card is so pretty, I’m hoping for the same results. Thanks for sharing everyone.
Such pretty cards! Great inspirations.
Lovely pinks, lovely lavender (my favorite color), and even some gorgeous greens. Stunning everyone.
Flower Cart inspiration galore. Once again Beth you blow us out of the park with your 3D creations. You truly are a paper engineer.
I am hoping to have my Valentine’s done by February 1st. Then I can start on my St. Patrick’s Day cards.
Loving all this inspiration as I finish up my own Valentine’s.
Thanks for Craftspration Thursday!!!
PS I only hot a few pics at first but kept trying and they ALL came through.
So, so many beautiful cards!
These are ABSOLUTELY beautiful! Yeah, Griffinites!
I see five photos. And they’re all gorgeous as usual. Thank you for your talent.
Only see 5 pictures for this weeks post.
I believe I have everything Anna Griffin has ever come out with
I thought I only liked Halloween stuff now I decided it’s Halloween and valentine stuff. I have so much of Anna’s goodies.
Love all the beautiful creations! Thanks for sharing!
Only 3 pixels. Loved those though.
Ladies you guys inspire me. After been away for about 5 years I thought Valentine was a good time to start back. Even though I was out of the loop for sometime I still ordered mostly everything on HSN. I have a room full of things unboxed. I need to get busy. I told my niece when something happened to me she best not throw all this in the trash. Thanks for sharing your cards this week.♥️
Only received a few pics but they are gorgeous 😍
We only received 3 pictures, with the rest just blank boxes. The ones we could see were beautiful!
James and Sharon R.
All are so brilliant that I saved each and hope to do my own versions, soon. As usual, Beth knocks it outs of the park with her flower cart magic.
Anna, All are very nice! I enjoy seeing what others are making! Thank you crafters!
I only got four of the pictures as well.
So many inspiring ideas keep me going! Thanks Anna and crafting friends for your demos and sharing .
Could only view a few a few beautiful!
Same problem, most pics didn’t show up. 🤔😕
Another person who can’t see all the photos. Disappointing!
Anna I’m so said I only received 4 of the beautiful photos in today’s Craftspiration. But what I did get to see were very inspiring! Not certain why the rest disappeared.
God bless and have a great day!
I didn’t get all the pictures of the cards either….don’t know why.
Yikes! Twenty women talked about their cards and I only got three photos! I look forward to Craftspiration every week. It’s very uplifting to me! My phone provider is not sending me things in a timely manner and wanting me to purchase more space. They withhold things. Not my crafting! They can’t mess with the queen of quality crafting!
Everything is Beautiful!
Thanks for sharing!
As My Dear Anna says “Beautiful in the Making” 😻
I love all these creative peoples projects. It gives me ideas! Keep them coming!
Very pretty makes. Thanks for sharing. 😊
Wow amazing talent all of the projects are so beautiful and stunning. Great job everyone.
Wow amazing talent all of the projects are so beautiful and stunning. Great job everyone.
I am blown away! Clare…I had that stamp & never used it & gave it away! You have inspired me to try mixing in old stamps with new dies etc. Eve’ s idea to ink the die has me thinking of trying that! All if the Valentine’s are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
WOW! The Griffinites, are ALL so talented and creative, gave me wonderful ideas for any card for any occasion with a few ideas taken from 2 or more cards. Thank you Ladies for kick starting my creativity!!!!
