Fan Mail Friday- Grateful for our Community
Happy Friday to you! It’s hard to believe that it was just one week ago that we began our Crop at Home 3 event. We are so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing, creative people all of the time. Getting mail from you all is our very favorite because we get to know you on a whole new level and see how you like to use our products to make gorgeous cards. Grab your cup of tea or coffee and get ready to settle in for today’s Fan Mail Friday.
Come see what came into the office this week!
Our sweet friend Cindy made the prettiest wiper card for us. She loves the “me time” that crafting allows, but also loves to watch with her 103 year old mother!
Kenny sent such a lovely thank you card for the Petal and Leaf Cardstock won on AGTV! Thank you for this wonderful card, and we are so glad that you are enjoying our shows and products!
Mary enjoys our events so much, and even though she isn’t a scrapbooker, she likes to apply the learned techniques to her cardmaking. She made a bunch of wonderful Square Box Cards with card stands for us to gift!
We received an amazing box of cards from the Arizona Griffin Gals who attended the Sunday Craft Day in their Spring 2023 Convention. Thank you to Pam, Brenda, Stacy, Karen, Barbie, Vicka, Maren, Laura, Carole, Nora and Jane.
We love getting to know you, and find out what’s going on in your lives through the mail. If you would like to submit something for Fan Mail Friday, you can send them to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324. We look forward to hearing from you! Have a wonderful, crafty weekend!
Bye for now,
So cool. Love to all the creative ideas.
Having a rough day? Watch Fan Mail Friday and your spirits will be lifted by Anna’s cheerfulness and everyone’s creativity and generosity. Thanks for making my day better!! I needed some positivity and joy today.
The Box Cards by Mary Howe are positively gorgeous! I would like to know if she use a specific kit of yours with the Box Card die set , or if she mixed and matched from several sets?
“The Arizona Griffin Gals” have been so creative and very generous. They have such a cute name!
You really do have the best products in the world of Cardmaking! I have acquired quite a collection and hope my health has turned a corner and I can begin crafting soon!
Hi, Kirby! My box cards aren’t from a kit. I used the Quote and Flower embellishments, paisley papers (from Crop at Home 2), matte gold cardstock, , the round Cardcentric dies, and the Square Box Card die set. I made the gift boxes by measuring and scoring the papers to the size I needed. Anna included instructions on making a box in one of her recent videos, but I don’t remember which one. Hope this helps. Thank you so much for liking my project! 🥰
Anna, you look absolutely lovely as always, and everyone’s creations are beautiful and inspiring! Such talented Griffinites! ❤️😊 I so enjoy seeing everyone’s interpretations using your products which I agree are of the highest quality and SO elegant! I can’t get enough of them, like many of your fans, and my craft room stash is overflowing into the hallway now! I received my classic car and baby carriage dies plus the assorted papers you offered on HSN this past week and they are all fantastic! I also received my Flower Shop Finishing School box and it looks AMAZING! I can’t wait to dig in! If only my 1 year old fur baby Mulligan 🐶 wasn’t such a handful, lol!
Sending love out to all the Mothers, whose work at the most important job in the world. Thank you! ❤️👏🏻😊🌸🌹🌿🌷
I have always loved your products. They’re beautiful. The baby carriage is one of the cutest dies I’ve ever seen! Thank you for all you do!
All are so beautiful. Happy Mothers Day!
Hi Anna, I love all your beautiful items. They are all so inspiring. Can you make travel dies/cut & emboss folders for Travel? Like airplanes, helicopters, luggage, boats, cruise ships, sail boats, old fashioned wooden boats like the Nina, Pinta and the Santa maria? That would be so awesome! I would so love that and I believe a lot of people would love that!
Anita! You are amazing. Congrats on winning in bowling. Loved all the stepper card. I need to use that format again! Loved the box cards! So well done. I hope to send some fan mail soon because you all are so inspirational! Thanks for FMF.
Hi Anna. I love all your beautiful things. Would you consider bringing back Tea cup party dies? I wasn’t able to get them before, but they are so beautiful. Also, would come up with some coastal stamps and die sets? Nautical, sealife theme stamps and dies? I love that sort of thing!
Love Mother’s Day of furry babies cards for you sweet Anna. You deserve a thousand good wishes for a happy day and year. Much love to you and your wonderful staff. Happy Mother’s Day to you all.
Hi Anna, I like the FMF with the personal notes. All are beautiful and unique!

Happy mom’s day everyone!
Mary, I loved seeing your box cards! Just beautiful! My Flower Shop autoship arrived this afternoon as did the Classic Car die set and and a couple of other goodies. Looking forward to making these.
Anna you are truly appreciated and FMF attests to that. Mary’s boxes are clever and really pretty. Got my Flower Shop box today and my Mom and I will be watching AGTV. By the way, her name is Anna as well. I have 2 “Annas” in my life, one is bossy (guess that’s how to get to 103 y/o😂) but both bring me much Joy….thank you. Happy Mother’s Day to all who nurture and care for others…even fur babies.
Love Fridays! Thanks for the inspiration. 🙏
Oh, wow! I love Mary’s cards and like to have one. The box is awesome

Ah, my latest eye candy. Love seeing all of the exceptional projects by people in the Anna Griffin world. Keep making these videos. Love them.
Such beautiful and thoughtful gifts.
I have seen your tissue boxes in the past. But this year I met Belinda in the Craft Room during Crop@Home 3. So now I see her beautiful face whenever I see the tissue boxes.
Mary’s boxes are each a work of art. And she proves that even if you don’t scrapbook you can still make something beautiful with the papers.
Thanks again for Crop@Home 3. Truly a wonderful time for one and all.
I appreciate the projects/cards shared here each Friday. These are unique and special, creative and beautifully crafted. When you start with gorgeous paper, are inspired by Anna, and feel the support by this group everyone is inspired.
What an amazingly array of talent!,,took my breath away!
Beautiful cards on display today. Wiper cards have been hard for me so I am happy to see an example. I need to try using my dies again.
Peggy, I struggled a bit with the wiper also. The embellishments on the wiper can’t be too heavy. Persistence will pay off…good luck! Cindi
Those of us who craft with you Anna snd team, are extremely luck to be able to learn from you. It has changed our lives💖💐
Love those wiper cards! Will have to order.
Wow, I’m blown away. Mary did just a great job with those cards. It’s amazing I think I’ll try that next project myself. Great to get in such love she put into it. Of course all of your products are the best. I agree with everybody 100% your Product are just so good. God bless you.
Another wonderful set of cards! Wow such creativity!
And yes, I spent way too much on the HSN channel but I have to own everything that Anna and her team create love everything so
