Craftspiration – May 5th, 2022
Thank you so much for joining us for a very crafty week! We loved getting to spend time with you, show you new products, projects and inspire your crafting. Speaking of inspiration, that’s exactly what you have done this week! We found so many gorgeous projects that we could hardly wait to share. Come see what was posted and shared on our social media channels this week!
Jane said, “Used Salon Nouveau for this Mother’s day card for my sister. She loves art nouveau .”
Donna wrote, “Some of the girls brought to my attention to a news stories about one of the last Tuskegee veterans who was celebrating his 100th birthday. He lives in my state and wanted to receive 100 birthday cards. Some of us decided to help his wish come true. Here is the card that I made for him. Hope he loves our efforts to bring happiness into his special day! Love being a part of this group of caring, creative, men and women!”
Wow! What a special occasion to create for! Thank you for sharing.
Vickie shared, “Working on Sympathy Slimlines and so enjoying this kit! The botanical flowers are so pretty and they all work together beautifully!”
Tina called her card, ““Pretty in Pink” as they say! Love using the Bow Dies and the Cartouche Cut and Emboss Folders for this shaped card.”
This is just lovely.
Michele said, “A few days ago, I made several roses and leaves using the Layered Rose Dies. Used the result with the Basket Easel dies to make a basket of roses for my mom for Mother’s Day.”
What a great idea to add layered roses to your basket!
Janell posted, “And an emergency birthday card. I love this kit.”
Gay Lynn wrote, “Made my first pop up card for my Mom’s birthday.”
Shellie shared, “Happy National Scrapbook Month, Anna, this first day of May! Your Sunday Share-Cartouche cards are exquisite! Today, I made a ‘Lila Collection’ 12 x 12-in. scrap page to add to my granddaughter’s ‘First Year’ album. I paired it with Scrapbook Titles die set that I just got, happily; and, I also used Pleated Ribbon dies–to ‘frame’ some journaling (to replace the script-cardstock shown), and GrandLittle’s ‘cameo’ photo (to adhere to the Metallic Lavender shown on the right). Embossing with Wildflowers, and Butterflies and Branches adds another dimension to die-cutting, and is one of my favorite ways to embellish instantly)! Thank you, Anna, for giving us all the best designs for special projects like this!”
Happy National Scrapbook Month to you!
Jacquie wrote, “Mother’s Day cards for family and friends.”
Elaine posted, “Beautiful cards! I love the Cartouche Cut and Emboss Folders. I made this birthday card for Sunday Share.”
Mary shared her Mother’s Day card.
Shirley said, “Sadly I needed to make two quick sympathy cards for two friends . I mixed and matched inspirational card toppers with the beautiful embossing folder and dies from the Wildflower craft box. Also added just a flower or two.”
Vera shared, “Mother’s Day cards for my two daughters. One is a first time mom. One has a boy and the other one has a girl.”
These are lovely! Great work!
Irene said, “Making a few slimline cards for my “stash”. I love the extra real estate slimlines allow.”
Marilyn posted, “Now that they’ve all been received in the mail. This is one of the 72 Mother’s Day cards I made using the With Love Slimline card bases. The back layer is White Pearl Metallic cardstock cut using the Slimline Concentric Dies, the green vellum layer is from the Everyday Vellum Collection and cut with the Fanciful Slimline Concentric Dies, the sentiment base is cut using the Festooned Frame Dies, the tea pot and cup is from the Tea Party Cut & Emboss Folders and the flowers are from the Hydrangea & Rose Stickers. While the elements of every card were the same, the variety of the card bases made them all beautifully unique.”
Roxanne wrote, “This reticulated border die reminds me of an old-fashioned woman’s hat box. I’m not sure why.”
We love all of the colors and flowers used on this card!
Kaye said, “My mom’s favorite colors were peach & coral. So I always think of her when I’m making a card with these colors.”
Gwen posted, “Mother’s Day cards for my 4 aunts. Picture taken at my mom’s 91st birthday last year. I think they’ll love this!”
Lourdes shared, “Anna’s Carte Homme Wardrobe card is perfect for my VERY fashionable nephew, Zachary’s 30th birthday! Since I have seen him in gold and red satin, I made him a golden suit with a red satin shirt for his birthday card. I love this fabulous Finishing School box for all the men in my family! I had a blast making this special card for Zachary! What a unique idea for a man’s card!”
This is such a fashionable card!
Maria said, “Thank you Anna for Finishing School. Here is my Carte Noire card for a very dear friend. I am so grateful your beautiful products make giving so special. I used your floral rub ons inside the card.”
LOVELY creations!!😍 Thank you all for the craftspiration!!👏🏽🙌🏽🥰
I am in Atlanta for DIVA CAMP! The Leroux girls have not been together for 2 years due to Covid. Our time apart has left us all yearning to be together to share our love of crafting, creativity and of course all things Anna! Due to the cost of my flight and travel costs I was unable to buy the Scrapbook box this spring. I would love to be chosen to win so we could share your fabulous classes at Diva Camp. Please pick me.

Happy 100th birthday to that special Tuskegee Veteran who fought bravely in WWII. The card recognizing him is incredibly special. I also love Michele’s beautiful Mother’s Day basket. Amazing imaginations, Ya’ll!
All the crafting designs are so gorgeous and the colors are so eye appealing. Thank you to all that shared their crafting talents.
Get such inspiration from the craftspiration, lol. Truly I do. Absolutely stunning cards and projects this week. What am I saying, they’re ALWAYS GORGEOUS, 😊🌻💣
All of them are not only beautiful in the making but beautiful most realized. Thank you Anna for sharing such wonderful creations.

So many talented people!
All the cards are amazing!! I just ordered the Slimline Sympathy Card Kit, and after seeing the above cards by Vickie, I am even more excited to start my first experience with the slimline card series. Thank you, everyone, for sharing your beautiful cards, and thank you, Anna, for such lovely products.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Such beautiful cards. I just love them.
Love them all, especially the Carte Homme gentleman’s card. My kit is on the way. Can’t wait!
Can someone tell me what die was used in the center of the 7th card? It has a black & pink butterfly on top of a beautiful, scrolly gold diecut.
Beautiful crafting everyone!
Inspired and envious at the same time, thanks for sharing.🌺🌺🌺
All your projects are so beautiful!
With Anna’s breathtaking products, the creativity of this group is limitless. Thank you again for such beautiful inspiration.
Another beautiful card.
The creativity is amazing.
As usual beautiful cards
Thanks for the inspiration. Always so great to see what people are doing with their Anna
products. Love them.
Between bits of paper from die cutting & bits of paper from foam squares on my work desk, I got a small blue plastic dustpan & brush I already had to use in craft room for quickly cleaning up those bits of paper. But blue plastic just doesn’t go with Anna’s pretty things. So maybe we need a pretty Anna gold & creme one would be a nice addition!
Small & dainty no more than 6” across. Just an idea!
Loved Marilyn’s tea
Themed lavender card. So beautiful!
All the cards & scrapbook pages were so lovely. I too have loved using the Sympathy Slimline Kit. I actually used all the items up so I’m needing more of those. I even used some of the items to make Get Well cards as the kit was so easy to make the cards from. I just love Anna’s Boxed Cards kits when I need to make a card in a hurry.
very beautiful and inspiring!!!
I love coming to see the projects created I get inspired by the beautiful creations. Everyone has done a beautiful job. All you are so creative. Nice job everyone. You are such an inspiration. Loved all of the cards.
Love, Love all the cards
So much gorgeousness. Thanks for sharing and being an inspiration to me. So much talent. Thank you. Barbara
What lovely cards, everyone!
The amount of shared creativity never ceases to amaze me!
Happy Mother’s Day to all!
They are all beautiful but Gwen you are so correct your aunts will absolutely love it, great photo of family!!
Love the thought, love and creativity behind the Tuskegee card. Our veterans are so precious!
Beautiful cards. Happy Mother’s Day to all you lovely and talented women.

Thank you for all the beautiful examples of very talented ladies cards, with, of course, Anna at the helm! Since we gals all “Mother” our pets, husbands, siblings, our own parents, etc., etc., I am wishing you ALL a “Happy Mother’s Day!”
Thank you Anna ❤
“Happy Mother’s Day” to all the wonderful mothers! 🌷
Anna griffin lovely Christmas and birthday card and do you have any signed pictures of you
Awesome, thanks 😊
Beautiful Cards, just beautiful, it makes me feel so good to visit your site and see all of the beautiful designs, and to know the only way these items are here, is that someone’s hands created them, and Anna’s teachings, impeccable products are the reason and Griffinite ingenuity. Love Craftspiration!!!
All beautiful. Love seeing everyone’s amazing creations. ❤️
All beautiful as always!
Such beautiful cards! I’m looking forward to my order coming in from the HSN craft day and getting started on some new cards!
Thank you everyone for sharing your cards with us!
I really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful cards of Craftspiration this week. All the cards were lovely, but I was truly inspired with the new male dies for the suit. That presentation looked so real and handsome for a male recipient with gold and red, and the red presentation background put the icing on cake! Excellent!
Thank you for sharing such talent! So much inspiration!
Beautiful creations as always…
I really like how she put the picture of all the ladies in the card. Really nice touch.
Hello Anna, & All the Griffinites
Such lovely cards and scrapbook pages to see and inspire me to keep creating. The love in each one of the creations shows a confidence only Anna Griffin Inc products can give 🙂 Thank you everyone for sharing. Wishing everyone a basketful of blessings and a wonderful Mother’s Day to all the moms.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, I live in San Diego. We have a large Hispanic community here. It would be great to have dies and decorations for cards representing this occasion. Can’t wait for my slim slim line dies to arrive.
Beautiful cards….recieved my Homme card kit today…will be a great weekend of creating!
Gorgeous cards today! It has been an exciting week seeing all the cards from the talented Griffinites! Loved watching HSN and Anna with all the great “demos”. Waiting to get my email from HSN stating “your order has shipped!”
Great creates! Lourde’s card is very unique and I like it.
Beautiful creations as always. Love the layered roses in the basket. Just yet another example of how well Anna’s dies mix and match. The combinations are truly endless. Craftspration Thursday is my favorite. My fellow Griffinites, Griffanistas, and Anna Belles truly do inspire me. Thank you for another fabulous post.
Beautiful cards and l admire these creative crafters!
Beautiful cards and lots of inspiration for me!!
Such a happy inspiration!! I love sharing all the ideas. Please keep up the good work Anna.
Love seeing these as I have several of the same kits. Thanks for sharing
I love the slimline cards. The dies down the middle allow flowers and embellishments to be added nicely. Beautiful cards.
These are all so beautiful. I particularly like the lady who made a card for the Tuskeegee veteran. It is such a beautiful card and the desire to bring such love to a remarkable veteran is so heartwarming. I am sure that your card was the prettiest of them all. Do you know if he got his wish for 100 cards and maybe a link to a webpage that may have marked the occasion? Would love to know.
All the other cards are amazing for sure and make my recent efforts pale in comparison. But inspiration and sharing creativity works silently in the back of my head and maybe just maybe, I may come up with a new and unique idea to share someday too.
Awesome products, I really wanted the TSV but that will have to wait.
Thank you for making such wonderful products!
Great work everyone!! So beautiful!
These are so pretty. It would be awesome for someone to get one of theses in the mail.
Absolutely beautiful cards! I’m so happy that you shared your makes, as I often borrow inspiration from them. Great job everyone!
Wow! Our Griffinites are so gifted. Every card is beautiful ❤️
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day with Duke & Georgie.
Love & blessings,
All of these creations are so beautiful. I am in awe.
Awesome cards. Love them all!💖😊😍
It’s another craft perfect day. More inspiration for me to collect and use. I especially like the way Tina’s “Pretty in Pink card came out. Using the Cartouch cut and emboss folder and placing them around gave the hint of sparkle and the pattern bows were the finishing touch. All the Mother’s Day florals were so pretty. Thanks all for the explanation of products used. I will be busy. Happy Mother’s Day to all!
Oh My!!! today’s Craftspiration is breathtaking. All are so beautiful, but I have to say that out of every single die set, and I have just about all of them, my very most favorite is Salon Nouveau. When I opened up that box set, it was just awe inspiring. I use it as often as I can. to me it was transitional into art deco.
But its so hard to pick favorite, because every one is GORGEOUS!
What lovely creations! Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!
Love it !
Man so many talented people love it.
Again, amazed at all these talented Griffinites!!!!
It is pure joy to see these creations every week. Thank you all for sharing!
Gorgeous projects! Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!
I am positive that all the mothers and the people receiving the other cards, were blessed with such amazing cards! Seeing them is so inspiring!
