Fan Mail Friday- Halloween Treats
We hope that you have had a wonderful week so far and we are so glad that you are here! It’s fun to think that Win It Wednesday leads many of you to send us cards for Fan Mail Fridays as a thank you! We love receiving your cards no matter the occasion. Thank you for sending them to us each week! Today is an exciting day because we have our October Finishing School Live, available for everyone right on our website. Join us on AGTV, our streaming platform for an hour full of harvest themed projects.
But first, let’s take a look at the projects that have come into the office this week!
Sue in Las Vegas made this stunning card, and sweet letter to thank us for her Win It Wednesday win! She said that she is a relatively new card maker, but this card is so professional.
Margaret has been collection our embossing folders, cardstock and more for years! She sent 3 beautiful cards for us to pay forward, and said that they are a testament to how well our products mix and match over the years.
How pretty is this layered Halloween card from Robert and John? Thank you for the Halloween treats; it’s so good to hear from you!
Patricia has sent us best witches and a spooky box full of Reese’s Cups! Best witches to you, Patricia!
Halloween is so much fun, and the cards and projects are equally as intriguing. We want to say a big thank you to everyone who sent something wonderful this week. If you would like to mail something to us for Fan Mail Friday, then you can send it to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324 Attn: Fan Mail Friday. We are looking forward to hearing from you, and for you to join us at 12pm today for our October Finishing School Live. There will be projects, guests, sneak peeks and more! See you there!
Bye for now,
Sue I love your use of black cardstock for the background. It makes the card really pop.
I get so excited each Friday to see everyone’s creations. Beautiful!
I love all the products in Preview #1 for November 15th HSN event. I would love to win the Crop At Home 2 box. I did not attend but from the reviews and what I heard the dies and papers are amazing. I would love to give this to my best friend for a Christmas Gift this year. She has lots of grand kids and this would get her started into creating a scrapbook for each of them. Thank you.
Just fantastic projects I loved all of them. Great job everyone. Have a great weekend.
Thanks for your kind words about my cards and letter Anna. I have had my Grandkids all weekend and it has been a trial getting time to sit down and thank you properly. This was my only submission to Fan Mail Friday, there must be another Margaret out there who made your Kitty Cat Box, LOL. I did send you a text last year of one I made for Halloween.
I really do have such a great time making everything. Now I need to find some time this week to make those Pumpkins from Finishing school! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for AGTV in the future.
Loved all the awsome cards. I also live in Las Vegas!! I would love to contact Sue and have some Vegas Grifinites. That would be great. I love to hear from Sue in L.V.
Colleen I would love to talk Anna Griffin crafts with you but no clue how we meet. Guess I’ll have to search for Colleen Isaac who lives in Las Vegas. We need a Vegas Griffinite group!
DREAMY LOVELY CREATIONS! It must be such a delight to receive, open and read all of your fabulous fan mail! HUGS! YOU ARE ALL SO LOVED!
I am excited to watch your finishing school video on the replay today now that I have a few hours of free time to play in my Anna area of my little crafting cottage. Those filigree border die pumpkins look so elegant!
Love fan mail Friday’s! Such beautiful cards! Loved the Finishing School project today! 4 of my friends ordered the subscription & are now going to Create 8! I love sharing my Anna Giriffim inspiration.
Thank you everyone for sharing such wonderful cards and your talent!! Wonderful ideas here!!
Sue’s card was beautiful! Keep it up Sue! Thanks to all who shared. I look forward to FMF every week! It is a real positive pick-me-up.
Just finished the Finishing School (had to work) when I got home I told my husband dinner is going to be a little late, I need to watch Anna, Hahaha. I love the rich earthy colors of the Give thanks and grateful cards. And the silverware holder fantastic. Super beautiful 3D PUMPKIN.
So much talent!
I thoroughly enjoyed Finishing School this morning. Loved the advanced pumpkin. I will be making some to go with the ones I made in 2019 at Create in Atlanta
Then I enjoyed FMF this evening ! All the mail was delightful . Hope everyone there in your office brings their toothbrush so they won’t get cavities from all the Halloween treats! 🤣🎃🎃🎃
Anna, I have go to get into gear and send you a fan mail for Friday. i worry too that I cannot make anything fancy enough, but that doesn’t mean I don’t support you. Just look at my account and you will see how much I love you.
All of the cards for just lovely today
All so lovely!!! Thank you for enabling us, sendees and nonsendees, to make beautiful cards and crafts with your products, Anna. Grateful everyday, not just at Thanksgiving, for all of your interest and energy.
Oh Anna – what a thrill to see you feature my card and hear you mention my name! Don’t I feel special!!
The fact that you and your staff take time to actually read and appreciate the mail you get makes you all there in Atlanta so special to your crafting family worldwide. It’s no wonder why you’re so beloved by your Griffinites!
Love from Sue in Las Vegas
Thank you to everyone that sent in such cute cards and things , love to see them.
Love seeing the beautiful beautiful cards, want to make them myself.
Missed the class today, too busy battling ANTS. Thank goodness I will be able to view it later.
Thank you Anna!

— Robin in Washington
Love the submissions but especially the box! Cute!!,
Spooktacular projects! Thank you for sharing.
Hello Miss Anna and Co!
Love seeing all the creative compositions this talented community comes up with!
Beautiful! Each and every one unique.
Thank you for your streaming service. It was wonderful and exciting!
I enjoyed watching the live AG-TV event today!! So I thought I’d go watch more of my Finishing School classes, but something has changed. I could no longer access Charm School or Finishing School, even though I was signed in as a paid member. Something must be brewing. Wish we’d learn soon because I’d love to continue watching the classes I have not yet completed. Staff — could you tell us or help us access Finishing School again?
The box is a good idea, maybe gift it along with other cards and envelopes to a special person in your life or as a thank you. Appreciate all the wonderful ideas. 😊
Anna, Thankful for all crafters. You have all shared wonderful inspiration for Fall!
Enjoyed seeing your cards from everyone. Have a Blessed day.
Great cards/projects! Love those old paisley papers!
I always look forward to fan mail Friday. Your posts are special treats to me. Thank you for adding happiness to our days, Anna!
Beautiful creations as always!
ROBERT: Happy to see you are busy collage crafting again…best to you and John! Love all the patterns, colors, textures.
Live fan mail Friday. Great inspiration
Margaret! I am still hoarding…gradually using…the beautiful paisley and plaid papers that you utilized here. The color palette SCREAMS Fall to me. Therefore, always pull those out first for crafting projects this time of year to use bits and/or more…
Love the Halloween box idea!!!
so darn cute!!!🥰
Having a great Halloween season today is card making day for this new Griffinite😸 and what inspiration from this weeks fan mail Friday. Have a great weekend I look forward to your blog everyday Anna, you make beautiful crafting look so attainable thank you
Well, I agree with you Anna, about Fan Mail Friday: It’s the best. Always amazed at people’s generosity and artistic flair they put on your already wonderful products. I thank them all for that AND for this piece of the world that is always caring and considerate as opposed to all the fighting and bickering on the newsfront. Breath of fresh air.
Beautiful cards and projects!!!🎃
I love your cards and ideas they are great
Yay! Great advice, fun, makes. Enjoy your candy! Yum!!
Thanks for Fan Mail Friday so much talent. Beautiful cards ,Good Job!
I love the paisley paper! What are the chances you will bring it back? So many creative people this week.
Patricia, you are a genius!
Happy Fri-Yay, Anna! Today’s fan mail pieces are beautifully created. I especially love Sue’s card – you would never know she is a newbie! Thank you, everyone, for sharing. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend! 😃
Anna the top layer on my box opens into a 5×7 card. It is attached to the lid of the box. Maybe it was too compressed in the mail? Or stuck? Enjoy your treats!
Great cards and projects!
