Fan Mail Friday- 5.13.22
Welcome to our favorite time of the week, Fan Mail Friday! We love catching up with you each week and showing off all of the amazing cards and paper projects that you create. Today’s Fan Mail is extra special! We got to hear from crafters we never heard from before, old friends and boy was there a lot of beautiful mail.
Let’s take a look at what came into the office this week.
Melinda sent us these 3 beautiful cards for Fan Mail Friday. She won the Cake Easel Dies from one of our Product Preview giveaways! Thank you, Melinda we are so glad to hear from you!
Barb calls this her “Progression of Seasons Celebration Card.” From Valentine’s Day to St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and more, Barb has made a card to celebrate all of the special holidays in spring!
Terance and John made this lovely card for the mothers in our office. One of the quotes in it that we love is, “A mother’s love is more beautiful than any fresh flower.” So good!
Belinda knows that happy tears are shed during our events, so she sent this sweet card and some Crop at Home 2 themed tissues! So sweet!
Aren’t these clever?
Sandy created this beautiful May Day card. When she was a kid, she would make paper baskets and fill them with paper flowers for her neighbors. What a fun memory!
Valerie watched all of our shows on HSN May 3rd, and the new Antique Train Slimline Easel Dies are a new favorite! Thank you for this beautiful card, friend!
Kim will be participating in Crop at Home 2 with her friends Donna Lee, Penny and Vivian in Maryland! She mailed us this gorgeous card and one of the party favors that she created for the event! See you soon, Kim!
This is our first card from Irene! She won one of our Win It Wednesday giveaways, and loves her prize. Irene, know that you and your family are in our thoughts!
The very special ladies in the Griffin Gals (Anabel, Jane and Jennifer) made us the most incredible Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed breakfast basket ahead of Crop at Home 2. The whole staff enjoyed English muffins, donuts, coffee, macarons and fun props that you included. You three are so kind and thoughtful! You truly made our morning! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

3 cheers for Anabel! She’s the best bringing this basket in and helping with Crop at Home 2 this week!
Sara loves macarons!
It’s always so good to hear from our Griffinites near and far. We love hearing from you, catching up on what is happening in your lives and crafting together! We have many of you live right now in class for Crop at Home 2. It’s going to be a beautiful weekend! If you would like to send something to us for Fan Mail Friday, you can mail it to 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30315 Attn: Fan Mail Friday. Have a great weekend!
LOVELY Fan Mail!😃 CAH2 was utterly FANTABULOUS and I am happy to see you, Anna, and Team AG enjoying the breakfast goodies that were delivered to by very thoughtful Griffinites!😍🥂👗👠💐 I was able to pick up the Anniversary Paper Tricks to finish my last class! What an EXCELLENT Sale price!!👏🏽🙌🏽 I am still so excited from this weekend’s SCRAPALOOZA and cannot wait for my new craft supplies to arrive!🤩 Thank you again, Anna!🥰😘
I had ordered the crop at home 2 ticket from HSN. I checked on my order everyday, kept saying processing. It still had not shipped May 12th. I checked on my order on May 13th, and it said my CC declined. I knew there was nothing wrong with the card so I went to Publix, and used the card with no problems what so ever. I have continued to use the card at Amazon. Usually when I order from HSN my order states packaging. HSN lied! By the May 13 the kit was sold out. They never packaged it! Lucky I had ordered the papers.
Anna, could you bring back some of your fancy pencils? I’m wanting all things Anna to inspire me when I’m crafting. You used to have more stationary items and I believe you had pencils to match. I’m needing some!!! Thank you for considering this huge request.
Love, Rainbow Butterfly
Well Crop at Home 2 is over and I must say I had the best time. Anna you and your awesome team know how to throw a party! I’m humbled by all the beauty you created and I created during this event. I still have catching up to do, but I completed 3 classes, which I’m proud of. I can’t thank you and crew enough for all your hard work. I can’t wait until November! I learned to miter, to pleat, to make beautiful bordered pockets and to use my craft knife to “gut” a most intricate design in a paisley design. And I have many great ideas of who I’ll honor with my beautiful scrapbook layouts. Thank you again. Love, Rainbow 🦋
Lovely. Thanks for sharing
More exciting ideas.
Thank you for sharing this amazing creativity.
Hope you all have had fun at Crop at Home 2.
Anxious to see your achievements.
Wow all the projects and gifts were amazing and I am having a blast in Crop 2. Thanks Anna and team for putting together this event. It is such a joy to be able to participate in this event. I am looking forward to Create 8 cannot wait. Credit Card is ready to charge as soon as the tickets go on sale. Everyone enjoy the weekend and those who are in the event will see soon. Anna and team once again thank you for this great event.
Such beautiful cards!! I always enjoy watching Fan Mail Friday and see all of the gorgeous cards made by everyone. All of the goodies made me hungry. I know you are enjoying your Crop at Home event. I lament that fact that I couldn’t be a part of that event. Thank you Anna for sharing all of this.
So nice to see the card ideas. The basket is super cute, great theme.
All the beautiful cards and you, Anna, inspire me!
I love Terrence & Johns flower card! Also to Sandy…I did the same thing for May Day when I was a little girl! What a fun tradition. Thanks everyone for sharing.
Edyne, thanks for the mention. I said in my note to Anna that I’m sure the paper flowers we used were not as pretty as hers! But great memories!
Beautiful ideas. Loved seeing all of these ideas.
What wonderful fan mail! Thank you for sharing, Anna, and enjoy your Crop At Home experience, all.
Hi Anne, wondering if you can have a kirigami butterfly die created.
Beautiful creations! Thanks for sharing!
Well assembled, well deserved, well received!!! We all appreciate your interest and efforts in our crafting progress and production, Anna. Happy scrapbooking to everyone!!!
Kudos to all the Fan Mail people today. Everything is simply beautiful, love Terance and John’s card. Good Job!!!!
Congratulations to the winners. Love the cards you’ve shared and love the goodies, too!
Beautiful cards and gifts! I just received another box from HSN, I can’t wait to try out my new dies and pretty much everything. I had to order a lot of storage products from Anna too. After I realized how much I spent, I could have done the Crop at Home 2! Next time I will definitely plan it better. I’m glad that I did buy the new borders, frames, photo album and more to get started. I will keep watching YouTube. I wish you all the best time ever. 😊
These cards are incredible, all of you are so talented!!! Way better than I could ever do. Thanks for sharing them.
And the donuts look pretty good too……
Very, very cute basket and idea! I’m never ceased to be amazed at everyone’s creativity and generosity. Way to go!
Have fun everyone!
Anna your yellow blouse is a delight, just like you!
Happy Fri-Yay, everyone! Beautiful projects in the fan mail share today. I’m a little jealous of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s basket, lol. The eclaires look amazing and I adore macarons. Love your look, Anna! You look stunning; but then again, you always do…
Y’all have way too much fun! 😂
You should always wear yellow. You look like a beautiful touch of sunshine and that makes me smile😊
Have a wonderful CAH2 weekend. wish we could ALL be there…Fun FMF!
Now, I’m hungry for goodies *and* the crop at home experience. The fan mail is exquisite. How gratifying. All y’all have good one.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful creations. However I haven’t had a donut in years and that picture has me dieing for one!
Belinda, yours is my favorite! The beauty comes through in its simplicity of design. Clearly elegant!
Some really great projects and lots of great craft ideas from many fans. I’m going to take some ideas and see what I can create.
Super talented Griffinites. What lovely samples to inspire us all. Thanks to all who share each week, especially Anna.

Love get your festive emails
Love all the fun and festive Fan Mail…..just so inspiring!
Beautiful creations everyone!
Thanks for sharing!🌸
The projects are always so pretty.
Oh boy, you and your staff have a fabulous breakfast!!
Wow, thank you Anna!! I didn’t expect you to show all 3 of my cards! I hope you or your staff members can put them to good use. But I couldn’t have done it without my dear friend Karenbeatrice Porcher! Even with her crazy, busy life and working a stressful job, she has been so giving in helping me get my Anna Griffin stash of dies, paper and embellishments! My only regret is that we hadn’t crossed paths sooner!
Hello Anna & Team-
Always so uplifting to learn how other Griffinites share their gifts of crafting and sharing with others 🙂 Happy crafting until next Fan Mail Friday!
All CAH2 attendees…enjoy your weekend – and all at AGI don’t stress the small stuff!
thanks for the inspiration!
Adorable pictures and beautiful creations! I loved CAH2, wonderful event and thank you to everyone that assisted, and Anna, of course! ❤
