Welcome to a whole new year of Craftspiration. We love using this weekly post to show off and spotlight all of the amazing crafting and handiwork that we see across our social media channels. We have the most talented crafters and each week we are so inspired by the cards, scrapbook pages and 3D paper projects that you create and share.
Let’s kick off the year with a number of beautiful projects!
Erlene said, “I was unable to attend Create but was overjoyed when Anna offered the kits to us. They’re so easy and look incredible.”
Great job, Erlene!
Sherry wrote, “Confession: When I first saw the Ribbon Bound Journal dies in my Create 7 pack I wrinkled my nose and said “I don’t think so”. But I participated in the class and was pleasantly surprised how interested I was in making this project. So I decided that this would be a Christmas present to my daughter. I personalized it with pics of family and her children and added inspirational touches complete with small hand written notes in the small handmade envelopes. Unknowingly to me my husband snapped pics of her opening it on Christmas Day. The pics with her expressions are so precious. She was touched! Her expressions of each section are so heartwarming to me. (below are a few pics of the journal). I can’t wait to make another! Thank you Anna for another truly great die set.”
Maria said, “More fun today with carousel!”
Dunia shared her, “First card for this year.”
Here is the inside.
Adina posted, “I used the Fan Pop-Out Die and the Honoka papers and embellishments. Since there are Peacocks printed on the cardstock I used, I decided to use the Peacock from the Feather Dies on the belly band.”
Here is the inside of Adina’s card! Beautiful!
Heidi wrote, “Phew, thank you for finishing school boxes. First time I had opened one. I know I know I’m way behind. Ever so thankful that there were thank you tags in here. Yes, I so need more even toppers would be excellent. Trying to get through this next chapter in my life and boy it’s hard to create. I will get there again.”
You’re doing a great job, Heidi!
Take a look at Judy’s Nutcracker ornaments! These are gold, glittery and gorgeous!
Tina used the Garland Cut and Emboss Folders to make a Best Wishes card!
Mary shared, “I have o.d.ed on my Christmas crafts for at least a few months, and made a few other cards today. This is for a good friend who, thanks to Covid, I haven’t seen in awhile. I am loving the Heirloom Lace Kit. And one of Diane’s banners fit right in! Love those too!”
Sharilyn wrote, “Starting the lace box, think this is my favorite.”
Melissa posted, “Everything is Anna Griffin except the pocket on the bottom, it was just a random die I had for a 4×6 card. Penny Comeau provided the flowers on the front.”
Doris shared, “Granddaughter Emma in an old Scrapbook page kit by Anna Griffin. I hope Anna will make more Scrapbook kits!”
A beautiful scrapbook page for a beautiful little girl!
We are off to a great start! Thank you all for sharing your talents with us! Keep posting your projects with us on our Facebook page and in our Finishing School Community for a chance to be featured. Join us here next week for more beautiful in the making!
