Welcome to this week’s amazing Craftspiration blog post. It is such a treat to see the absolutely incredible cards, crafts and more that you have made and shared this week. We got to hear from new crafters, had friends email us beautiful things they made and were thrilled to see that many of you made gorgeous variations of the fun pumpkin tablescape that we made during last week’s AGTV Finishing School Live. From Halloween to Christmas projects, there’s something here for everyone! Come see what was made and shared by our talented community.
Edyne shared, “I am not on social media at all but I was so thrilled with this card I wanted to share it. The card is for my friend’s mom who is turning 93! All I knew was that she liked blue and French themes since she is from Louisiana. I love the Mini Flower Dies and use them a lot to create beautiful paper flowers!”
Eunice emailed, “Anna, I really loved making my first explosion box from the Win it Wednesdays gift. Thank you very much!”
Pretty, pretty! We’re glad that you are enjoying your win!
Shirley posted, “I made some cards for my church’s caring ministry using the versatile inspirational collage card toppers. I used Anna’s card base and embellishments made with pleated ribbon die. She made it so easy to care for others!”
Terry wrote, “I love all the toile papers. Such pretty designs and colors! I’ve been playing with pumpkins this week, both real and paper! And I ADORE this pumpkin easel die! I’ve made almost a dozen this week for youngsters, each a little different, but all of them FUN!”
Becky Jo posted, “An explosion card for my son & his wife. On the inside made a pocket with the spider webs and made them a picture magnet. They met being scare actors at Universal Studios.”
Maria said, “Today I am finally finishing 12 pages of old photographs in a scrapbook. It has taken me awhile to gather all the dates and print cards. Saving for my niece and nephew. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!”
Leigh posted, “Making brag booklets for family gifts.”
Donna said, “I love the Simply Christmas Card Making Kit. The cards are so festive and pretty. I made a couple of simple cards which were very easy to put together. The rest will be saved for my daughter who is just starting out. These cards were made using embellishments from various other Anna kits. I would definitely like to see a 50 card set of these cards with the sentiments and layers included.”
Mary wrote, “Just finished making a dozen treat boxes. I cut card bases from a past Halloween kit in half and used the front of the card to make the top of the box and the back of the card to make the bottom. The decorative platforms for the top and bottom were made with the Wonderful Web cut & emboss folder and I hand cut shadow layers for added strength. Everything but the pearls and glitter are Anna.”
These are exquisite!
Jane posted, “Finally my Christmas Cards for the Christmas Card Challenge! I was behind but now I’m caught up . From the Anna Griffin Inc. Carte Noel Finishing School Craft Box.”
Sherry said, “Using the All Boxed In Dies, and various other dies and die cut stickers to decorate, I made my grandkids goodie boxes for Halloween. The first pic is the front of the boxes, the second pic is the back of the boxes and below this pic is an example of the inside of a box. Using Anna’s dies and with the help of Cricut I decorated the inside of each box. I added an envelope to hold a gift card for a little extra surprise. The inside of each box has a different design.”
Now these are a treat!
Beth wrote, “Still having fun creating pieces to go along with my Gingerbread train and depot set. This time I used The Carte Noel Townhouse dies to create a confectionery 3D lighted sweet shop.”
We are always inspired by you, Beth! This is magnificent.
Alice posted, “This card is one of my favorites. I cut the scene from a card in the Halloween vellum kit, then I added the boy with the pumpkin from the Halloween die cuts, I think. I added the gold foiled flourish last.”
Frankie said, “Another make of Anna’s Finishing school 3D pumpkin. I love how delicate these look. I plan on making more to use as place settings for my table for Thanksgiving!”
Loraine posted, “These pumpkins are so elegant! I think I need to make one more small one for my Fall Centerpiece! Thanks Anna! I so look forward to learning new things!”
This is beautiful, Loraine!
