Gorgeous card, Terry! So glad that you enjoyed Create 9!

Laura posted, "Anna, I really enjoyed and still enjoying your Create 9 Event classes this weekend with Sara and Robin assisting you so beautifully and quickly! Your guests were also so awesome with sharing their stories with us. My key word from them all that I received was working together in "harmony" togetherness! Thank you so much Anna Griffin Inc."
Jan wrote, "I've only completed all the cards from class 1. I love each and every one of them. These are the cards for her."
What a gorgeous display!
Nicole said, "Happy day after Create 9! I'm still on cloud 1 million. I really enjoyed the shadow box inlay Christmas ornament class. What are you going to do with your ornaments? What was your favorite class?"
Everyone let us know your favorite Create class in the blog comments.
Bethany shared, "I am working on Christmas cards today and gift tags for friends and family!! I could not attend Create 9 but bought the Gift Cards Compendium and love it!! They are so easy to make and are beautiful. I would love to see a video on how to make them different ways. Thank you Anna for your products."
Cindi posted, "While I was experiencing extreme FOMO during CREATE, I played with the Truck die and Snowmen bundle. Mom and Dad are letting Jr. drive back from the tree farm, and Sis and her Beau are singing Christmas carols accompanied by little brother on the bell. Thought it turned out cute!" 
Margie shared, "I made this card for my nephew who has a car like this in bright blue."
Anne posted, "Loved this weekend #CREATE9.
Love this interpretation.
Jonna posted,"Had to switch layout directions but it works!"
Gorgeous album!
Lillian said, "Enjoying the process...all the beautiful pieces in this kit! Making a little everyday, hope to get them done by Dec 1st!"
Maria posted, "I made these purses for the tables at a local fundraiser. They are filled with tea, teaspoon, honey and chocolates."
We know they were a hit!
Joy said, "Hi All...I did not attend Create but what a treat to see your gorgeous projects & inspiration! I did make several Anna cards these last few days is one I made with Anna's Birthday Wishes Box for my friend's daughter...I sure hope they like it!"

Create 9 was an amazing experience! It’s hard to choose but the Victorian Christmas cards with the fringe and the beautiful perfume boxes were my personal favorites.

So beautiful! Create 9 was fantastic! You’ll have a tough time beating this year’s. I was sick with COVID so I had to watch some videos on replay but I made the male birthday cards because I have so few. I also made 2 Victorian Christmas Cards with fringe. I love them!

Wow….so happy the new website is up, I missed it so much! Thank you for including my card for the first new Craftspiration, so humbly honored. Very thankful to see such gorgeous creativity from your Griffinites.
