Craftspiration – October 27th, 2022
Your amazing crafts have made our week! We are having so much fun seeing your woodie wagons, thank you cards, Thanksgiving and Halloween projects! Each one is more beautiful than the next! Below are the projects shared on our social media channels. If you have never posted before, do so! We love to share your amazing work! If you love crafting, be sure to join us on our new streaming platform, AGTV on Monday, October 31st for our next live event. The theme is It’s About Time, and it’s for anyone and everyone who loves to craft and create!
Let’s take a look at this week’s projects!
Jane said, “I crafted this card with the Woodie Wagon Easel Card Dies for my new boss, Lucinda, to celebrate Boss’ Day. She loves to road trip in our home state and thought this would be perfect to give.”
Wow! Your woodie wagon card could not be more fun!
Mary posted, “Will be needing several thank you cards. This is my first. Will always love Carte Noire.”
This card is stunning!
Frankie wrote, “I love these Harvest Icon Cut and Emboss folders. The details on them are so wonderful! I used the Reticulated Border Frame Dies to frame my Turkey and used the Mini French Frame Dies to enhance its tail feathers.”
Dayle shared, “Just waiting for the big day to get a picture for it. All Anna.”
Marie said, “I decided to try foiling the Feather Dies for Create 8 as I needed a few cards and had an idea of what I wanted. Can I just say that I love being able to hot foil dies???”
Sharilyn said, “Love this Christmas woodie wagon.”
Deborah shared, “‘Mac’ and ‘Kenzie’ are going out in style-all the way to the Mailbox! I went for a decorator type of Jack O’Lantern with the Halloween Pumpkin Easel Card Dies and really loved the results using our Halloween Cardstock & Halloween for All cardstock- along with the Spooky Matte Cardstock as well. Of course the B/W cardstock came from the Rose Paper Crafting Collection. I think these will go with anyone’s Halloween Decor this year, I love them on my embroidered leaf table runner.”
Terry wrote, “I’m still having fun with the pumpkin easel dies, but today they became treat boxes for my granddaughters!”
Nora posted, “I finished this card just in time for Halloween. I used the Anna Griffin Carte Homme dies, Handsome 3D dies, Spiders and Specters webs and Halloween Embellishments bat. I cut the vest, ribbon/medal, pants and high collar by hand.”
Clever! What a great interpretation and Halloween card!
Barbie said, “Finished the last of my Halloween cards!”
Terry wrote, “Blessed to call you a Griffinite friend It is truly a blessing to be a part of this community of kind, generous & very talented crafters. The dies featured here are Fanciful Concentric, Oblong Concentric & Fancy French Frames 2. Paper is from the Fall Toile collection.
All of your cards are gorgeous, Terry!
Stacy Ann wrote, “Just finished these…” from the awesome Finishing School class for the Carte Noel box!
Marlane shared, “Working on “2 – fer “ cards for someone who needed 2 birthday/Christmas cards.”
Shellie wrote, “Eeeek, I’m rustling up the final Halloween cards today to put into the mail this week! A couple weeks ago, I had die cut pieces for this easel card, and have now stirred up the cauldron on my craft-desk just right for a Snarky Witchy Pumpkin easel for a gal-pal. I’ve used Pumpkin Easel the most this trick-or-treat season, and love it a lot!”
Belinda said, “Love the new cut and emboss turkey! Thankfulness paper and flowers with the pumpkin easel die. Thanksgiving card! Grateful for ALL of you!”
This card is gorgeous, Belinda!
Carrie shared, “and this one. “
Connie posted, “With the inspiration of a very kind crafter on this page, Terry Lubinski, I tried the pumpkin card into a treat box.”
It’s so much fun how we inspire each other.
Nancy shared her “Kirigami Halloween cards.”
Donna said, “Happy Halloween to all of my fellow crafters!”
We love your spooky train!

WOW! What beautiful makes. I can’t believe the Gumdrop Inn is paper. I thought for sure it was Gingerbread. I guess you could say it looks good enough to eat having afe some edible ones myself. Great job everyone
Overwelmed (and just a little jealous😂) by the amazing talents from these Griffinites. Hopefully I be here too one day🤞🏻. I’m a newbie to the group (I.e. finishing school) so I’m just learning from the school and Anna’s blogs.
❤️❤️❤️ Today is still my favorite day of the week….Craftspiration day. I just love seeing all your many ideas, things that I would never think of myself. Beth, you continue to amaze and inspire me. Your Gum Drop Inn is just fabulous. Your eye to detail is really great and you should be so proud of your creation. Your niece is so lucky to be receiving this set. Where are you getting all of your bits and pieces for your embellishments? Norma, I love your Dracula card, how invented. All of the Jack-O-Lanterns are just so different and beautiful. The Woodie Wagon Easel cards are wonderful. Stacy Ann your Carte Noel House cards are gorgeous, I would love to receive a card like this for Christmas. All the rest of the cards are beautiful. Thank you all for sharing your cards with us, I really appreciate it. Thanks Anna for sharing. Have a great day!
Loving the creativity!
These Halloween cards are fascinating. I have the Kirigami dies but haven’t used them yet. Frankly, I can’t quite figure out how Nancy created her card, but I loved it.
I love Mary’s thank you card. Does she have a site that lists all the items for this card? I would love to make them.
Hi, Vicki! Almost everything in the card is from Carte Noire – black papers and embellishments. The pink is Anna’s pink metallic. The die set is the Fancy French Frames 2. Hope this helps. And thank you for liking my card!
You all are so talented, just beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
Loved Nora’s card. What a great idea using the gentlemen’s dies.
Is it just me but just when you think the cards are gorgeous enough, they keep getting better and better.
Beautiful cards and inspiring! Love seeing all the products made up. I am waiting for a few things so I can start Thanksgiving. I did make the woody die up for half of the Thanksgiving cards but need to decorate them.
Everything is simply beautiful. Beth just out did herself, Kudos
Thanks everyone for sharing😁

Oh my gosh! Such beautiful, creative projects! Truly inspiring. And such clever uses of Anna Griffin products.
Super job everyone. Craftspration Thursday lives up to it’s name. Each week I am so inspired by what everyone creates. Definitely ALL treats and no tricks.

Nora’s idea of using the men’s suit coat to create a vampire’s outfit was genius and Mary’s Carte Noire thank you card is so pretty! Thanks for sharing!

I don’t know where to post this, so I thought I’d ask here.
I would like to attend Create 8, but honestly, did not want to attend without a friend. I just moved to the area last year, have busied myself teaching school, went through a hurricane, and now feel I need the distraction of a craft party.
Can someone recommend a local group I could attend with (even though it’s only virtual)?
Great makes everyone. Thanks for sharing!
Wow! That is quite the gingerbread house!
Beautiful Cards, I’m inspired to be more creative with my cards.
Gorgeous projects everyone 😊🌻
Awesomeness! Great cards. Cleaver details. Very talented artists.
I get so much joy from seeing all the talent in Anna’s world!
These are all AMAZING! I really enjoyed looking at each and every one. So much inspiration here!
All of these cards are fabulous!
I am always amazed at the talent that is in this crafting circle! Innovative and so extraordinary. Thank you for sharing. Blessings to all.
Another awesome creative Thursday. Taking a break. We have covid in the house Ugh!
Not so bad just tired. Stay safe this Halloween.
Love them all! Oh such talent!!!

The Count card beats all!

Beautiful projects by all! They are fabulous!
They are all exquisite, but I love the Gumdrop Inn 😀!

I can’t stand it, they’re ALL great! Cannot choose which I like the best.
Everyone’s work is so inspiring. I have seen most of them on the Friends of Anna Griffin website and was in awe. The new one for me are the Gingerbread box..WOW! And the Kirigami Halloween card. So creative!
Thank you to all the card artists who shared and Anna for giving them a platform for us to see!
The Griffinites imagination and creativity on show!

Love the cards
Wow, so many unusual and terrific projects! That Woodie Wagon Easel card is BEYOND my ability to design–as are several of the other projects. Anna, you should feel amazed at what your “Griffonites” have figured out how to create! Amazing!
The foiled feather is brilliant!
Hello Anna & Greetings to all the Griffinites
Every card, wagon, house, treat box and pumpkin gave me so many ideas! Thank you for sharing your time, talent and creativity.
Boy, some great talent here. Really cute cards.
Love everything shared today. We’ll done Griffinite friends!!
Stunning projects great job everyone. I love to see what everyone comes up so much ideas to learn from.
I love the cards especially the Dracula suit? Can’t wait to make cards, been so busy with doctors appointments and Halloween coming up. I NEED to craft!!!!
These cards are beautiful. I hope that I’m able to make cards as beautiful as those cards. Going to start practicing.
Wow these are all amazing best Thursday to date. Have to say the Dracula suit was over the top so imaginative.
Oh my! I love these cards, and scrapbook page. I’m green with envy.
These cards are magnificent! I love them all!
Anna i loved all the cards showed this week. I would love to learn how to make treat boxes. I have no clue even where to start. I hope i can talk to someone on line to help me!
Exceptional designs – thank you to all for showing your crafting techniques and designs. Many thanks to Anna Griffin as well – I just love the fact that this inspiration is sent to the UK as well. Best wishes from Berkshire.
Beths gingerbread houses were spectacular. and they never have to be thrown out. Made real ones my mom saved one and didn’t use plastic. I had to throw it out. Now the pumpkin if you were to cut it on the back side, they could be looking at each other.
All are SO creative!!! Just great!
Wow! Talented crafters! Beth, your Gum Drop Inn is AMAZINGLY!
I am inspired! Thank you for sharing!
Beth Turchi, Do you have instructions for the 3d train? I really like your gingerbread house you are very talented.
