Craftspiration – June 30th, 2022
We are so proud to showcase your wonderful paper creations this week. From our Finishing School Live class projects, lots of birthday cards to flowers galore – we have it all right here! Scroll through today’s post for inspiring ideas of projects to make and send. It’s all beautiful in the making!
Donna said, “This is my version of Anna’s Finishing School project. I had to make some adjustments because I did not have the same supplies. Love this die!”
Heidi wrote, “Opened the box from celebrate finishing school and it took me a moment to go through all the items. My vision went straight to decorating a home. I do not have the house die so Halloween die to the rescue.”
Three cheers for the red, white and blue!
Jane posted, “This is the birthday card that I sent to my fellow Griffinite and AZ Griffin Gal, Laura O’Connell. She is a sweet and sassy crafter – she KNOWS crafting and is super avid Ann fan! I wanted to create something special for her. This shimmer hot pink and black birthday card has mascara roses on it, Impression Flourish die cuts, and all the die cuts made from 3D Ribbon Edge Layer dies.”
Happy belated birthday, Laura!
Dayle wrote, “The colors in this collection are so perfect for summer layouts.”
Hayley June is so beautiful!
Beth said, “I have a few masculine birthday cards to make for July so I decided to use some of my older dies. You can’t go wrong with the Hot Air Balloon Easel die it’s a classic.”
Debbie said, “I decided to try a feminine look with the Carte Homme suit die set & the CAH2 papers & embellishments. Definitely comes out differently than the male look. I was careful to switch the direction of the coat overlap. (Women are always right & men are left over.)”
These are so much fun!
Marie wrote, “A neighbor wanted a card for her dads 81st birthday and I knew he was a train lover so this is perfect. I actually searched for where the train number should go and learned they are placed in different places for different reasons. So 81 landed where I wanted it. I wanted a rosette after finishing school last week. It is so much fun personalizing cards.”
Frances shared, “I really like the concertina concentric dies! These cards are for 2 sisters that lost their mom. Mom was in her ninety’s.”
Adina said, “I am so grateful for the kind, thoughtful, and talented crafter’s that I have had the opportunity to meet here in the Community! I received this beautiful card from Terry this week. It was such a delightful surprise! She wrote the sweetest message inside. It just means the world to me! I wanted to share her lovely card with all of you. Thank you so much, Terry!”
Great work Terry!
Diane posted, “Here is my triplet with the new 3D Rococo Concentric Frame dies paired with the Baroque Frame Concentric dies, the 3D Decorative Layer dies from Create 6, and the 3D Ribbon Edge dies. I decided to play with Rococo in pink too!”
Adina shared, “I watched Anna on Facebook Live showing the Bell Pop-out Dies. She mentioned that they would make great wedding and anniversary cards. My oldest granddaughter recently got engaged. They have not set a date yet. But, when they do, I will be ready. Thanks, Anna for the suggestion!”
We love this wedding card! It’s always a good idea to think outside the box.
Vickie said, “I asked my granddaughter what her favorite color was so I could make a card for her 6th birthday in that particular color wave. Purple it is for Miss Holly.”
Happy Birthday, Miss Holly!
Jane shared, “What fun I had combining these card toppers with the baroque dies. They were made for each other. Then I mixed in a little gentleman’s study and the magic happened. I love how Anna’s products intermix with each other. This is for my brother’s birthday. I think he will get a good laugh!”

Good Day, Anna! My, oh my – what beautiful show pieces today! I love all the projects shown; but my favorites are the train cards, the play on Carte Homme (so genius), the carousel card (I’m obsessed) and the elegant color palette of the hot air balloon. Of course, Adina doesn’t disappoint! I have all the above mentioned dies and am eager to ‘lift’ these amazing ideas. Thank you to all for sharing your outstanding talents with those who, like myself at times, require a little re-inspiration!
Just a little shout-out to Anna. . . the 3D Beautiful Bow Dies are currently out of stock. Fingers (and toes) crossed you will be restocking them. Please and thank you!
The GORGEOUS wedding card and the purple carousel take my breath away. Talent and imagination abound in the Anna Griffin community!

Anna, what a lovely showcase of cards. Thank you for sharing. i am so impressed as you must be of the talented crafters using your products. What a blessing to see and feel the joy of their pride in being exhibited on your Blog.
I am always “up a creek” when it comes to making cards for male family members or friends. This week I got a LOT of new male card-making inspiration. Thanks to all of you crafters.
❤️❤️❤️ I love all of the projects, but I especially love the scrapbook layouts. The trains were nice too. The carousel was gorgeous, love the purple. I love Carte Homme used for feminine cards, I’m going to use Carte Homme for a feminine scrapbook layout, I got some ideas I am working on. Thanks for sharing, Thursday is my favorite day of the week for Anna’s blog.🌼🌸🌺🌹🌻
These are all great ideas but my favorite is the red white and blue train. I’ll have to get the train die and try this. Great idea.
Lovely makes everyone!❤❤❤
Everyone did such a wonderful job as usual. I especially loved Yvonne’s – Birthday Popup box and Adina’s Wedding card!!!!
I am always amazed at all the beauty and creativity from crafters !
Thank you Anna fir sharing these gems of beauty with us.♥️
Anna, your community of makers are so talented! I loved them all but I especially enjoyed the incredible Hot Air Balloon B.D. Card from Beth, absolutely stunning, and Debbie’s Carte Homme Suite Die Card, which will always stick in my mind because of her funny, true, and practical quote! Marie’s slimline train was adorable and last but not least, Vickie’s amazing, wondrous Carousel Card for her granddaughter warmed my heart! ALL of you are such great designers! Bravo!
There’s something uniquely beautiful about each of these projects. Especially like the patriotic train. It’s just perfect for this weekend. tfs-stay well.
Absolutely beautiful cards!!!
The train card looks sooooo complicated! I hope I can master it. Those that are shown are absolutely beautiful!

Love all the inspirations your fans provide. They are so creative! If you gave them coconut fronds to make a tropical abode they would make everything from a two story thatched hut to at least two castles complete with moats. Mahalo ( thank you) from Honolulu for all them great ideas & Anna etal for the tools!
These card makers are all so beautiful and I love to see all their Cards. I love making your cards and using all the beautiful things I have from you. We are all so blessed to have you . Thank you so much ANNA !!! God Bless !!! Have a great day ! Hester
The “CREATIONS” in this CRAFTSPIRATION are the best I’ve ever seen. They inspire me and I plan on copying some of the creative ideas. I don’t have all of the dies to make most but I’m working on it.
all so creative and beautiful. lots of ideas.
All the cards and scrapbook pages are just beautiful and I love looking at everyone’s creations every week. Thank you Anna for sharing once again. Here’s hoping everyone had a safe and fabulous 4th of July! God’s Blessings to each and everyone!
Beautiful, as always. Love that Train die too. I see it has become a favorite for many of us.
The colors everyone used are so striking. Anna your Pallette is truly perfect. Just look at that black and hot pink Ohh la la. And the chocolate brown with the Champagne. You really make our projects so easy to match. Thank you for that.
Sitting in a waiting room is just perfect for enjoying Craftspration Thursday.
I’m always in awe of the wonderful creations that are posted each week by the US crafters. Thanks to all for the fabulous inspiration from here in the UK.
Thanks for sharing these wonderful cards, overflowing with color, creativity and ideas for all occasions, Anna!!!!!
Awesome, but then I expected these Anna Griffin cards to be when she makes such beautiful products. How can you go wrong…….
I’m continuously “blown-away” by all the talented Anna fans! I look forward to seeing their beautiful offerings every Thursday…once again they didn’t disappoint ❣️
Beth, I love all the colors in the hot air balloon. And the gold die cut on the front is just beautiful. Could you share where you got the die for that?
Fabulous cards and scrapbook pages.
A thankyou to all who shared their beautiful creations.
Just beautiful things. Everyone is so creative!
Wonderful card creations….

Beautiful creations!! Love them all
I love all of these cards. Shirley’s china cabinet card/china set is absolutely exquisite!. I am so impressed with Heidi’s use of the celebration box to decorate the houses – would never have thought of that. I will definitely use Debbie’s idea for the feminine use of the Carte Homme Suit Dies – I have the perfect friend in mind for this. And Adina your wedding card is so beautiful – my anniversary is tomorrow and would have loved to have received a card like this when I got married. It would be treasured! Thank to everyone who shared their creations with us. Anna, thank you for making this platform available!
Love the train die since my father was a railroad engineer. Thank you.
Everything is just amazing! Everyone out did themselves this week. I just love looking at these lovely creations, Thank you for sharing.

So many great ideas from everyone. Like the train cards and Debbie’s with the Carte Homme creation and her anecdote was very cute!! Have a safe 4th of July.
