Live Stream Lowdown: Wishing Well Finishing School Craft Box

Hello Griffinites,

Our September Finishing School Live was such a great time last week. In case you missed it, we are recapping it below and you can always watch on your own time here. During our hour together we did a deep dive, and got up close and personal with the Wishing Well Finishing School Craft Box. This kit is the third installment of this year’s Finishing School Craft Boxes. The Wishing Well Finishing School Craft Box is a hybrid kit, complete with dies, card bases, layers, embellishments, sentiments and the best part video instruction! There are so many ways to create with this kit, and on AGTV we showed you how to make 3 more spectacular projects. Before we get into our recap, here is a list of last week’s winners! If you see your name below and haven’t done so already, please email us at RSVP@annagriffin.com.

Here’s a look at last week’s show!

In Project 1, we created an incredible, duplexed wishing well card. This 360 experience creates such a wonderful easel card!

A pop up card with flowers on it.

Can’t get enough of this kit? You are in luck! We have the Wishing Well Embellishments and Wishing Well Double-Sided Card Card Stock available to supplement the kit.

A large arrangement of flowers, leaves, and labels.

We had our special guest Deepa Black and loved hearing about her work with the Milton Hershey School in Hershey, PA and how she brings crafting into the lives of 11 students!

Two pictures of a woman talking on the phone.

Our second project taught you how to recess a wishing well inside a card to create a window looking in and a different kind of easel.

A pink card with roses and butterflies on it.

For our final project we made an amazing 3D wishing well made with 6 cut wishing wells. What’s great is that this folds flat so you can send it, and you can use fewer cuts to create a similar effect. Watch the replay, we show you how!

Our Crafts Team makes so many inspiring projects. Watch the replay to take a look inside the project box; you are sure to find beautiful cards that will inspire you!

Looks like it was such a wonderful show!
I’m out of town caring for my parents and internet at their rural home isn’t fast enough to support streaming. Today’s recap allowed me to see how much fun it was. Thanks!

Looking forward to the next class.

Congratulations to the winners especially Clarissa who won Create 9. Anna’s virtual events are the best. If you have never attended before, you are in for a real treat.

I have enjoyed this years Finishing School boxes. Making additional embellishments for them really gives us more bang for our buck. I purchased the Haunted ones, but they are more fall than Halloween. And that works for me as I have made 4 October Birthday cards with them.

I’ll be ready for the Holiday Inspiration mext week.

AGTV the BEST show on TV. So I just have one question, when will the reruns be available. I didn’t have the Birdhouse easel die when you made that episode. Now I do, so will there be reruns?

Thanks for all you and you team do to bring beauty into the world.

Happy Crafting!!

Leslie Ramsey

Just received my wishing well box…..can’t wait to get started!
