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!”
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!”
