Craftspiration – March 24th, 2022
Welcome to Craftspiration, the weekly show and tell from your crafty friends! We love seeing all of the innovative, new paper projects that you create and share across our social media channels. Your creativity knows no bounds, and inspires so many new and seasoned crafters alike! Whether you are working with a new product, mixing and matching various things or looking for that creative spark, you are in the right place!
Come see what caught our eye this week!
Dayle said, “Dropped off these Easter cards for our church ministry this morning. Anna’s collage toppers are so pretty for spring.”
Kathleen shared, “I’m loving the Concertina Dies. I’m so happy I added them to my collection. I had many birthday, get well, and thinking of you cards to make. The Concertina dies made creating these cards a pleasure! I’m in love with the Fern dies too!”
These are so lovely, Kathleen!
Donna posted, “I am loving the new 3D Baroque Frame Concentric Dies. Looking forward to receiving the rest of the dies in this auto ship series!”
Laura wrote, “Happy Sunday Share to all! I received my Botanical Engravings Stickers last week, so I am having fun this weekend making pretty cards. Thank you Anna for the Botanical stickers. I ordered another box this weekend.”
We are so glad that you love them!
Elaine said, “Beautiful cards and Flourish Impression Dies! I made this card for a dear friend and neighbor. She has been ill all winter. I just wanted her to know that someone cares and I am concerned about her health. I hope when the weather becomes warmer she will be able to get out in the fresh air and sunshine and feel better.”
Valerie wrote, “Finished the last 2 Easter cards this afternoon using the 3D Cross Dies. The traditional color of Lent is deep purple but I used lilac instead. I liked how they turned out!”
Heidi shared, “and this was for my best friend Birthday Friday. She loved it!”
Jacquie wrote, “Birthday cards, I love these card kits so much!”
Shellie shared, “My Aunt Connie broke her ankle a few days ago, and as she recovers in the care center, she will know my family and I are thinking of her, and praying her ‘quick mending!’ When things like this happen unexpectedly, it’s great having ‘quick and convenient’ cardkits on hand, like Pulley Cardkit! Even better is having and using Anna’a Sewing Cut & Emboss Folders, Border dies, and stickers from Feline Card Toppers to embellish and personalize in ways that the card’s recipient will enjoy most! My aunt is grateful for her care but is most looking forward returning to her home, to enjoy her quilty sewing and her kitties!”
Donna posted, “This Basket Easel card was made to celebrate a wonderful event. I used some of the new Heirloom Lace Paper and the florals are a bit of Lillian and the new Garden Floral Stickers.”
Wonderful card, Donna! Thanks for sharing!
Penny said, “Scrapbooking today and I love Anna’s scallop paper!”
Belinda shared, “I found this old cloth covered box in the basement. It was yellow and splotchy from age but before I threw it out I decided I would use some Anna Griffin paint and see what it looked like over the brocade fabric. I love it! Wish you could have seen the before. (Not really) ugh!”
Now that’s an upcycle!
Jan wrote, “Since the winter holidays are over, I’ve been wanting to play with “All Boxed In” with florals. Tried to set this up for a picture, and Leo promptly inserted himself!”
Carol wrote, “A just because card for my parents whose winter residence is on the water near a gazebo.”
Tammy said, “Spring has sprung at the Shoman household! The crocuses are in bloom outside and birds chirping! Making this card with a variegated background makes me want to dye Easter eggs!”
Gorgeous card, Tammy!
Arlene said, “Used Anna Griffin Square Flip Frame – so versatile!”
Shari said, “22 bases made just need to decorate. 4 down 18 to go. Mixture of new and older Anna.”
Adina wrote, “I made a shaped card with the Heirloom Lace Paper Kit and the Lace Edge Cut and Emboss Dies. Some members of the community have asked for suggestions on what to do with the inside of their cards. Here are some of mine. I think the inside should be just as pretty as the outside. It is important that the inside reflects and blends with the front of the card. I put a pocket on the inside to hold a note. (Since I was not blessed with beautiful penmanship, my handwriting would completely ruin any card!) Sometimes I put the pocket on the back, which also is finished with the same large diecut in a cream color. I like to make sure that all sides of the card are covered if it is not a pre-made card. I have included a picture of the inside in the comments. I hope this helps those who have asked for suggestions. Thank you for looking at my post!”
Jimmie asked, “Do you believe in Fairies? I do! I used Anna’s butterfly dies for fairy wings and last years bird house for a fairy house! Nothing says spring like the flight of the flower fairies!”
Excellent work, Jimmie!
Nancy posted, “My first Gatefold Birthday Card. Love this die!”
Beth said, “My niece Jackie is hosting a St. Patrick’s day get together on Saturday . I found this cute Hat treat box in Cricut design space. Thought I share it with the Community. The papers are all AG with a few four leaf clovers from the Spring time cut and emboss folders along with a sentiment sticker. Thought it was a the perfect hostess gift to commemorate the holiday. I also finally got to use my debossing tool to make the gold coins look realistic.”
Debbie wrote, “I wanted a lace-type curtain for the carriage, but I didn’t have any fabric. I chose my bow pop-out main die to put a floral pattern onto the matte gold. Then I tried sanding & was surprised to find silver behind the gold. This card is decorated to work for almost any occasion.”
These are so beautiful. Wonderful products and amazing talents. Thanks for the inspiration.
Great inspiration Griffinites! It makes me want to try new things!

The horse and carriage is my favorite, but I have a crank machine and it’s only 6″ wide.
Oh well. It’s still my favorite.
Anna, you and your team have made it easy for us to make gorgeous, elegant cards. Thank you!
I have to post twice, sorry. Shellie is yours a pulley card? I love it, and I didn’t know what they were called. Thanks for posting!
Such gorgeous cards! I have to say I adore Carol’s Gazebo; Tammy’s stunning card and Arlene’s peacock. So much talent!

Good morning crafters:
What a lovely assortment of beautiful cards.
Thank you for sharing your talents to inspire us.
These cards are simply awesome! I love the colors everyone used. I loved how the kitty knew to pose for a pic with the boxes with floral colors. Animal companions are so cool. The easter cards and the baroque frames, heirloom lace cards, all are my favorites. I want you all to know , i learned a little from each card. I look them over, see how they are made and see how i can add these to memory. I love to learn and these cards make it fun to learn more ideas. Thanks all.
Beautiful as usual, thank you again for sharing all these wonderful ideas 😃
