We have lots of clever projects to share with you for your weekly dose of Craftspiration. In today’s post you’ll see new ways to use our card kits, projects for special people and so much more. We love to post your amazing work because each one of you comes up with new ways to create with all of our different papers, dies, card kits and embellishments. One of our favorite things about our community is that we are such a creative group. It’s amazing to see how you encourage each other, inspire one another and share your creativity.
Come take a look at this week’s cards and projects.
Jimmie said, “To all you Griffinites dealing with your own personal struggles this Memorial Weekend, my heart goes out to you! God bless you all and keep you safe and well!”
Maria posted, “My grandson is obsessed with trains. Over the weekend my son and daughter-in-law took him on a train ride. That head shot of my grandson with a thumbs up was taken on the train. So I made this Father’s day card for my son with the train easel dies. I used the Flourish cut and embossing folder to make the smoke stack.”
Carmen said, “The front of the card for my nephew’s birthday. I put his initials on the shirt…not sure if you can spot it. He has a large collection of unique pens, and wears a pocket watch when he dresses in a three-piece suit…so handsome!”
Bethany shared, “I was asked by a co worker to make a graduation card for her Granddaughter who is graduating from Nursing School. I had died of stamps pertaining to nurses so I put a come to on the Community page for suggestions. I want to thank Lourdes Papac for giving me the suggestion that “Nurses are God’s Angels” so I decided to put an Angel on the front of the card with Pink Roses. I also included a Nurses Prayer inside the card. I am very pleased with how it came out!!”
This lovely card turned out wonderfully!
Gay Lynn made a special thank you card.
Karen said, “I always create cards for my daughter’s teachers. Three of them had to be extra special this year. This teacher took on a specialty class that starts at 6:30 am (with teenagers, amazing all by itself). And unfortunately we are losing him as a teacher to pursue his passion. The outside of the card represents his current career, while the inside represents his new career as a sports card dealer. It’s sad to have him leave, but I’m happy he found his new passion.”
Deborah posted, “My hubby retired but I still wanted to use our new Carte Homme dies for his birthday card. I also used our Slimline Perfect Palette cardstock along with our Plaid cardstock. A friend sent a pic from ‘way back in the old days’ where he was wearing a plaid shirt with rolled up sleeves, along with a fishing vest and jeans, and I thought I would recreate it with our new dies and papers. The sleeves I cut from the plaid cardstock by hand and rolled the sleeves up a few times. The blue jean bottom I added to fill the gap between the vest. I added tiny buttons down the center and used a fishing lure sticker to add a little something to one side and cut out the sunglasses in both black and red plaid to make them.”
Beth posted, “Working on June Birthday’s this week . I made this Slimline for my Nephew Dave . He is a big baseball fan and loves his Phillies. AG Products used to make this card : Beaux Regards Slimline Cards, Slimline Sentiments, Rosette Dies, Slimline Gentleman’s Study Dies, Gentleman’s Study Card toppers, Sporty Icons Cut and Emboss Folders, Celebration Chest Ephemera, and Die Cuts for Him.”
Vickie said, “I have been working on the green bday box and had to break away to make a card with Anna’s Kiragami Layers! I was able to use a matching dimensional butterfly to pop up and show it off even more. Love the bday kit, but hey, The vintage look of the Kirigami layers is awesome as well!”
Sally said, “Memorial Day ushers in summer and memories of vacations past and excitement for coming summer fun. I created this layout of last year’s vacation using the Create Crop at Home geometric die. It reminds me of a beach towel. Happy Memorial Day!”
This scrapbook page is so cheerful and perfect for summer.
