Craftspiration – January 5th, 2023
2023 is off to a great start! We are so glad that you all had a wonderful holiday season spending time with friends, family and loved ones. Now that we have celebrated the New Year, we are hitting the ground running! From our AGTV show: Birthday Wishes that aired yesterday (you can watch the replay here) to our 13th anniversary shows on HSN on January 17th, there is a whole lot of crafting going on! It looks like many of you are getting the new started in a beautiful way with birthdays, valentines and more.
Come see what was made and shared this week!
Patricia said, “Happy New Year to you and yours…now that it’s January – it’s time to create Valentine’s Cards.”
Yvonne posted, “Happy New Year Anna!! I finally made a Ferris Wheel Easel card from the Paisley Papers.”
Love this card, Yvonne!
Jacquie shared, “Work in process for nursing home Valentine’s day cards.”
Dayle shared, “Time to scrapbook Christmas 2022! First of this year’s Christmas pages.”
Terry said, “New year, fresh start, life’s a canvas, begin your art! Wishing all my crafty friends a happy, creative & blessed 2023! My card today features the Romantic Frame Dies, Heirloom Lace Paper, and a new favorite, the gorgeous Antique Luxury Matte Foil Cardstock.”
Happy New Year, Terry!
Barbie wrote, “Week #1 of Make A Christmas Card Every Week! Played with the Kiragami dies from Create 8. It took me a bit to get the sandwich layer correct but then I was on a roll and die cut all that I had! This one is my favorite! Love the little glitter cardinal inside the Kiragami!”
Sheri said, ” To continue the party from AGTV, I used the CAKE DIES to make 25 bridal shower invitation for my NEW Daughter’s party. And then made a card for her gift, she loves lilies so the centerpieces had lilies and of course Anna had the prefect match.”
This card is just gorgeous!
Adina ❤️ “I’m having so much fun making Valentines!” ❤️
Linda posted, “Dear Griffinites: Happy New Year and All the Best for 2023! One of the first AG kits I purchased was the Explosion Card Kit… I was creating a few this weekend – and here’s one with the China Cabinet embellishments.”
Great combo, Linda!
Jan wrote, “Let’s face it, blue is the most favorite color of most people. I am in heaven with this whole kit.”
Leticia said, “My husband & I visited our daughter in Georgia last month. She made our visit so special, it was like staying at a bed & breakfast!! She & her family moved out there in July & I missed her terribly!! She’s my Best Friend & Kindred Spirit- I made her a Carte Canton Blue thank you card. I used the following Anna Griffin products: AG Flower window box, 3D border floral stickers, Climbing vine, Greenhouse wicker chair, Shutter Drapery dies for curtains & I also used acetate to simulate glass window. I placed a ribbon on top of the card to pull it out of box. I printed some clipart jars & vases & used Anna’s die’s to cut out- I also included my favorite lil kitty sticker. All of it went into a AG slimline envelope made from some Chinoiserie paper I had. My daughter took a picture of it & said she loved it!! We’re praying about moving to Georgia.”
We will gladly welcome you to the Peach state!
Beth shared, “Still working on Julianna’s Onderland Party . I created this gift box by altering a Drawer easel card ( minus the easel part) I found on YouTube. The tea cup is a ready made project found in the Cricut Access Library . It is actually a 3D cupcake holder . I just sealed the top off to form a base to hold my flowers and number 1. I made several of the flowers using sculpting foam and my AG mini flower dies . I coated the foam flowers using a clear sparkle pen to make them look like they were made of sugar . AG products used in this project: tea cup papers, Card bases from FS china cabinet kit, embellishments from tea sticker die set , the round doily die from the square doily die set and the mini flower die set.”
This is such a special card to commemorate a very important birthday.
What wonderful paper projects. The future is looking bright! Continue to share all of your cards and scrapbook pages and we will share them here on next week’s Craftspiration!
First of all, thanks to everyone who contributes such beautiful things week after week. When I look at Craftspiration there are always one or 2 projects that make me gasp! It just happens. I can’t control it! Terry’s pink card was so perfect that I had to look at it more than twice. There was something about Vicki’s card that made me stop & stare…maybe how the composition keeps your eye moving around the card. I don’t know but those two were my “gaspers” this week!
I always love seeing your beautiful creations!
I love the explosion cards and the paper colors are exquisite.
Yeah Anna crafting is my thing
Amazing talent! Anna Griffin Inc making all of this beauty possible!
Love the explosion card kits.
Always amazing projects and cards. Tfs. Love the new products too for January 17th.
Hope that you did something wonderful for New Year’s!
Happy New Year! Magnificent projects.
My crafting future is bright with all my new products. Can’t wait for the 17th.
Peace and love to all
The projects are wonderful. They are so creative and inspiring. A message to Lettie, my daughter and her family live in Georgia where we lived before we retired in Kentucky on the lake. . Georgia is wonderful and it’s really a beautiful state. If they decide to move they will not be disappointed. My daughter is my best friend and I adore my four granddaughters. I can relate wanting to move.
All of the cards are beautiful. I love the Valentine and I am inspired by all the cards!! Everyone is so creative!!! Thanks for sharing!!
So many talented crafters 😊. I have to give that Ferris wheel a try. This years new year resolution. Must use my Anna Griffin papers not just collect. 🙈. They are so pretty.
I’ve just recently discovered your product line. Had lots of fun making cards with the train easel die. Looking forward to expanding my card-making supplies with AG products. So much Craftspiration!
Wonderfully stunning displays of talent today, everyone! Thank you for sharing. 😊 ❤️
All of these cards are just gorgeous. I can’t wait to order some of the new products out.
So many beautiful creations! I love them all. Thanks for the inspiration all!
Lovely cards filled with beauty and inspiration. Lucky are those who are fortunate to receive them. Thanks Anna for sharing this crafty gems.
This is Gorgeousness overload!….in a good way 😉
Love all the cards.
Love all cards. Vicki Allison made a beautiful card that I will try to copy.
Beautiful examples of fabulous crafting!! I just watched preview 3 – I’m thrilled about the “charmed” collection!
Great ideas spinning around in my head from you all!
Winning from Anna wound get me started in this New Year, everything I have seen is a winner!
Can’t wait for HSN that is coming up!
They’re all beautiful in the making!
I hope I have the luck of the Irish winning these stunning gifts from AG!!
Wow. As usual I am amazed with all of the Griffinites’ creativity. What beautiful examples to share with us. Thank you
Beautiful paper crafting art everyone! Thank you for sharing your inspiring creations! HUGS! YOU ARE LOVED!
WOW!! I feel so honored to be the card on the cover page of today’s CRAFTSPIRATION BLOG. The CAKE EASEL DIES were perfect timing for my son wedding. And soon I’m going to be using the HEIRLOOM LACE PAPER KIT for the wedding scrapbook.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Beautiful cards. Getting ready for Valentines.
Thanks for sharing.
Lovely cards from awesome creators!
Hope 2023 brings hope and inspiration to all Anna Griffin followers.
I am just wondering where I can get Anna’s beautiful papers that are used in her cards. Do you have a specific spot for buying your cardstock on your website?
So many beautiful projects
I love all the cards especially the wedding cake one, it’s so elegant. Can’t wait to buy these beautiful dies and start to make own cards. With Anna’s dies, papers and embellishments I know they will be gorgeous!!!
I so appreciate when you show us beautiful inspiration. I love them all.
Looks like 2023 is off to a good start for all of the above. I hope to be that good real soon, Ha! Beautiful work shared.
They are all beautiful I like to best tea cup. Please include me on Win it Wednesday.
Love all the ideas these cards give to us all.
I LOVE ALL ANNA! But I have a question! Why aren’t Anna’s Wednesday videos closed captioned? Please fix that problem! Thank you!
As a retired Cardiovascular RN, I have long had a “thing” about heart and heart-themed things. Griffinites, PLEASE keep these wonderous and delightful heart cards coming!! These will be on my wish list for when my budget allows!!
Beautiful cards love all of them
Beautiful inspirations from talented crafters!
I am so inspired by such beautiful crafting!!!!! I really love that Beth decribed how and what she used. I think that everyone who submits their projects should at least list what dies and and accesories they used! It would help us newbies who don’t the have the invenitory as some of your long time crafters.
Beautiful projects! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
If I had to choose anything I would say the birthday tags and stickers …you have gotten me hooked on those since Create 8. They are so fun!!!
Wow, Beth Turchi has the Crafting gods on her side! She always exhibits such creativity. There were so many beautiful examples today and Vicky Allison’s card spoke to me most. I loved the colors and intricacies of this card. Great job everyone and thanks for sharing and inspiring us.
Such a wonderful way to start Craftspration 2023.
Leticia, if God wants you to move to Georgia to be near your daughter, He will open the doors for you. I will say a prayer for you.
I got the Ferris Wheel die set for Christmas, but have yet to play with it. My goal is to finish the projects from Create 8 first. I have learned my lesson. If I want to complete the Create projects I MUST have my Christmas cards done before it begins. I thought I was ahead and then found out I wasn’t. 🙄 But I finished the Birthday Celebrations pouch 😁 and made all the cards minus a few sentiments. Now I have a few ready to send “just because “.
Love seeing what everyone is making. I finished one Valentine this week. I want to get them done by the end of the month. Then I can start on St. Patrick’s and Easter. Anna, you have brought my card making to the next level. Thank you!!
I loved all the wonderful products from yesterday’s AGTV product preview. Thanks for the chance to win.
Just loved the AGTV product preview yesterday and all these shares today. I bought the floral stickers right away. I have to watch again..it was so fun. To win anything would be wonderful. It was all beautiful!!
What a fabulous share! Thank you Anna for sharing my Ferris Wheel with the Paisley papers. It really picked up my spirits! My new year this week has been challenging as I spent NYE at the ER. I’m getting thru it and hoping to feel better soon! Would love to win any of the new products coming to HSN. Thank you!
I am in awe of these crafters! Would love to win!
Anna I would love to win anything Anna Griffin…everything you do is awesome!!!
I love the Cardinal. It is so beautiful. It would be a great addition to any card.
The tea cup is so cute.
So glad we can do reply as I often can’t catch live. Thanks
I love all these cards, such an inspiration, and thank you all for sharing
Terry – your birthday card is AMAZING! So much so, that I took a quick picture for future reference. Such craftmanship & inspiration! Thank you everyone for sharing your talents!

I almost fainted when I saw Jan’s card in Blue chair ! I use to have two chairs in same blue fabric! In fact my daughter still has them! I gave up formal living room when we retired on Lake Fork. I went to all leather! Fishermen do better on leather !
Anyway I am planning out my Valentine cards and St Pat’s cards now.
Y’all enjoy this new year crafting and sharing !
Craftspiration is my favorite day of the week! I love to see the new ideas!
I was so impressed with the Carte Canton Blue AG Flower Window Box Card that Letty Tarin created and displayed and it is truly a Testament to the Creativity that Anna Griffin fosters.
Great Job Letty
So beautiful 😍
Good afternoon Anna,
Such wonderful creativity from everyone!
I have my she shed ordered for my crafting room!
It’s being custom made by the Amish a ways up the road from where I am now living. I still do not have internet or cable yet because we are in such a remote area we are having difficulty finding a provider but we are on a list for Starlink for sometime this year but do not know when.
So after all that being said I have lots of time for making cards especially with my 2 grandsons who just love making them with me! We will be making Valentines for sure!
Thanks for listening!
Thank you for all that you and your team do and God Bless everyone!
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I’m in awe. Nice job. ❤️
