Fan Mail Friday- Excited for the Weekend!
Today is an exciting day because it’s the start to our Crop At Home 3 event! We know that many of you might not see this until later because you are currently joining us for a weekend full of scrapbooking. We are thrilled that the time is finally here, and to be able to spend quality crafting time together.
We love hearing from you each week, here is what we received at the office this week and last week!
Agnes made us this gorgeous card to celebrate National Tea Day!
Our friend Wendy sent this pretty card and plaque in anticipation of Crop at Home 3!
Maggie in Alaska is so excited for Crop at Home 3! She is looking forward to scrapbooking, learning new techniques and new friends.
Kim is an avid scrapbooker, “accidental card maker” and new member of the Numb Buns in Maryland. Thank you for the lovely card, gift and update on you, Kim!
The Tex-Annas are celebrating Crop At Home in style, and they sent us some beautiful fascinators to get the party started. A big thank you to Martha, Pam, Roncia, Marilyn, Marion, Donna, Deena, Ana, Tracy, Eve, Sherri and Annie!
Volume III of the California Griffinites’ notes to us is one for the books! The members made a box full of the prettiest tags that were decorated and filled with notes.
Here are some tags up close.
We are thankful for all of the amazing members of the California Griffinites.
Everything is so beautiful! We want to say thank you to everyone who took the time to make such thoughtful and beautiful gifts this week. It makes us so happy to be able to catch up with you; can you tell that we missed you last week? If you would like to submit something to us for Fan Mail Friday, you can mail it to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324. We look forward to hearing from you!
Oh I love making tags! Why have I never done this with your dies! They are all so beautiful! Well I know I will be doing this now, and oh my, I see Christmas tags!
Everything is definitely Beautiful In The Making.
A flower budget, yes you deserve that Anna. You have worked hard the last 30 years to make your company grow into the incredible company it is today. Uncompromising quality. Timeless Beauty. So YES you deserve a flower budget to remind you how beautiful you are to us.
My Dad used to say “If you want to give me flowers, give them to me when I’m alive so I can enjoy them. Don’t wait until I am dead”.
LOVED EVERY SECOND OF CROP@HOME 3!!
I’m waiting to see the festivities in England, but I think the Gtiffinites have them beat:-) Loved the tags, hats etc., As you know I stay up late so I’m working on an early Christmas gift of cards and am using the cardinals etc. Can’t wait to see what you offer in July. Oh, oh Sammy cat wonders why I’m up and wants to be held again and again. Blessings to all of you
I love the box that the California Griffiites made, the tags are pretty but even the box itself looks amazing.
Wow! Such beautiful cards, Texanna facinators, and wonderful tags from the California crew! Thanks for sharing each card and project!
Love it all
Very pretty! I’m planning on sending in another card. The hard part is deciding on a design!
I really liked Maggie from Alaska’s black floral card and hope she’s enjoying Crop 3. The California Griffinites really showcased your products and great versatility in how they are used. Hope you have a spectacular weekend with all your fans and Crop attendees. See you on HSN.
Wonderful works of art. Love all the ideas.

Great fanmail and cards for Anna Griffin. I hope to see some posts from Crop at Home 3 weekend. I am doing my first scrapbook page.
All the cards are so beautiful. An inspiration for sure. I do enjoy making cards. I especially love the dies for my cards.
Just a beautiful fan mail Friday Thanks for sharing ❤️
Hello Anna & Team
Greetings to all the Griffinites near and far 🙂 Loved the prayers, blessings and poems. Every project was a wow! Have a wonderful weekend at CAH3 🙂
Beautiful cards! It never dawned on me to make tags like the ones shown. Great job!
Great Day at CAH3.
Thanks Anna 🥰
AWESOME Fan Mail Friday!🤩👏🏽👏🏽 I was not able to attend CAH3, but I am with you all in spririt!💃🏻 I know you will have a FANTABULOUS time!😃 I was just notified that my Canton Bleu is being delivered today so I am not so sad about missing CAH3!🥰 Blessings my friends.🕊😍
I think we all should have a flower budget. Flowers make us smile! And I love Anna’s flowers in Dies, Card fronts, Papers and Cardstocks, Stickers and Rub On’s. She has the most beautiful flowers to make our cards. I go from pack to pack to choose the right ones to match with the cards along with the right sayings to say to that special person and their favorite colors. Couldn’t do it without Anna’s products. We are so blessed to have her in our lives.
Like the flower budget. I used to buy flowers for my husband occasionally and I have no regrets even though he would chuckle about it! He always enjoyed them! Thanks for all the inspiration! Have a great time all of you at Create 3!🥳🌸
Happy Fri-Yay, everyone!! As always, FMF is full of creativity. Today did not disappoint, with amazing talent from start to finish. I am unable to attend CAH, but I am wishing everyone a wonderful weekend full of creativity, fun and newly forged friendships! (The fascinators are perfect for tomorrow’s coronation, lol!) 😊 💖
Anna, Thank you for taking the time to do this especially on this busy weekend. Love the unique way the cards were displayed from Cal Gals. Have a great weekend with your fans.
Gorgeous Cards! And I LOVE the Box and Tags that the California Grittinites made!
Thanks for sharing all of these!
