Fan Mail Friday – How About You?
We’re so thankful that we get to have this chat with you each week! We received 4th of July projects, thank you cards, scrapbook pages and more. Fan Mail Friday is so near and dear to us because it is the time of the week when we get to see what you have made in person, read about what is happening in your life and share with our amazing community of crafters.
Let’s catch up!
Mary Beth is the pulley card queen! We love this patriotic card complete with honeycombs. We thought we would share the quote she included with you.
“May we think of freedom, as not the right to do as we please but an opportunity to do what is right…” Peter Marshall
This festive card is from Marcey. She said that she hoped that we have a fabulous and restful 4th. Thanks, Marcey!
Martha said that she was so inspired by Finishing School that she had to turn it into a double layout! Isn’t this spread gorgeous; we love this interpretation!
Martha also made us two dresses out of the Carte Homme Dies. These are so creative and fun!
Look at all of the lovely things that Phoebe made and sent! There are cards of all kinds to us and for us to send. Thank you, Phoebe!
How cute is this sweet little box with the thank you note?
Mir, know that we are thinking of you during this time. We are glad that you have card making to keep you busy, and we want to thank you for this gorgeous card. Also, we loved listening to “How About You” by Ralph Freed, and cute parody!
Thank you all for making our week with your wonderful works of art and great letters. Have we heard from you yet? We would love to get to know all of the members of our Griffinite community. Send a card or paper project to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324! We look forward to hearing from you next week, and seeing you on HSN this Tuesday, July 12th at midnight, 9am, 3pm and 10pm for Anna Griffin Elegant Papercrafting.

You have some amazing fans/friends and they make beautiful cards and scrapbook pages. Your kits, embellishments, dies, papers and lessons/training videos are so above anything out there. Thank you and your team for all you do. I love working with your products.
The red, white and gold card is so pretty! I’m anxious to see if I win the Birthday Celebration Card Kit! My brother and sister have me make cards for them to give their family and friends and birthdays at the Moose Lodge, so I’m always needing Birthday cards on short notice. One thing for sure: You can never have too many Birthday cards made up!

Very creative fan mail! Very inspirational works of art!
I had to come back and take a second look
I loved so many ideas so I wrote them done and notated where and when and who. Maybe I can find it again! 😄
I just got to make that cute prissy dress and boy I wish I could have class on more fancy scrapbook pages. I am so thoroughly enjoying what I learned at CAH2. Not enough time (& I am sloooow) to do all I want to do with the great dies and papers in the CAH2 box you graciously sent to me. Thanks again !
Outstanding cards and I love Martha’s doll I can’t wait to make one. She is a creative genius and I watch her often on Youtube.
I have been busy working on Christmas in July. I have completed 8 gingerbread houses and cards, start die cutting 8 of the Nutcracker characters, and working on Snowflake in Wonderland. Welcome Christmas!!! So much fun can’t wait to see whatever else you have on the 12th.
I really enjoy Martha’s scrapbook pages ( hope you don’t mind if I scrap lift those). Thank you to everyone that shared their work. Thank you Anna for the amazing products to work with.
Gorgeous makes by everyone. Thanks for all the inspiration. Thank you Anna for all the “goods and supplies “ to make our treasures. As always, I thank you for the Joy you bring and your generous heart!
Love Martha’s jacket dies!! I never tire of watching Martha’s Paper Crafting channel. She comes up with so many different ideas that help me use my Anna Griffin products in completely new ways. Just beautiful.
❤️❤️❤️ LOVE Martha!!!! I follow Martha on YouTube. I can’t wait to see when Martha has a new layout. She is such a genius and a perfectionist. I can’t say enough about her work…..a true artist!!!! Please everyone check her out on YouTube….”Martha’s Paper Crafting.” I love all the Fourth of July cards. Thanks for sharing.🌷🌺🌼🌸🌻
Beautiful cards. The women’s Suit cards are so pretty to me.
I love the carte homme female tuxedo. I am excited to try this out.
Spectacular Celebration cards and I loved those Tuxedo Dress Slimline cards. So creative to use those dies in that manner.
A delightful FM presentation. tfs- stay well.
Good afternoon Anna,
Simply amazing cards and scrapbook pages!
Oh to be so creative. I really enjoy FMF as well as WIW and everything in between lol! Looking forward to the 12th on HSN. Thanks for sharing!
Such an enjoyable FM today . Especially love Martha’s and Marybeth’s contributions .
Decided to dig out my AG Christmas 🤶 cards, embellishments and dies and so far have made 30 cards and my aim is to make 10 a day – I’ve put some on Facebook
WOW! Everything is just AMAZING! over the top! Hope you feel better soon Anna!
Very nice job everyone, such beautiful. Everyone, have a great relaxing weekend.
Inspirational – need to get going on Christmas. Can’t wait. Thank you.
Phoebe’s cards are very creative. Have not thought of using the dies like that. A for imagination
So many cards inspire me to be a better crafter. Although I don’t know how they find the time to make so many cards.
Wonderfully made cards! Such talented crafters.
Fan Mail Friday is the “bomb”. Wowzer. So much inspiration. So little time to create. Thank you ALL for adding to my “Friday-Look-At-THIS!”.
There are so many talented people scrapbooking and making cards. Love all the 4th of July themes. Wish I was so talented. All the ones you post, Anna helps me with designs I’ve never thought to do. Yay!!
These are unbelievable. There are some very talented and create Griffinites out there. Thanks for sharing.
Yea for FMF. So Pretty
Everyone is so very creative! Love Fan Mail Friday! ❤️
Wow, what an incredible collection of creativity, just awesome. Martha, you are so inspirational ❤I took a screenshot of the scrapbook pages as well as the dress cards (so genius) in the hopes to “attempt” recreating them myself. Thanks to all of you talented people 🥰 .Anna can’t wait to see you again on HSN.
Once again there are so many beautiful cards and so much inspiration today. Fan Mail Friday is definitely something I look forward to each Friday. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
The Carte Homme dresses are beautiful!
Everything is just so lovely.
Whew, what a relief to know the Carte Noir papers won’t be available until August. I am on a super tight budget as I have been shopping shopping for my Anna Fix. And now I have to refrain on Craftmas. Thankfully I have sisters who will want to buy me things for Christmas. So I won’t miss out on what I want most. But those last few craft days on HSN were hard to resist so now I have those flex pays. Oh, well maybe one day I will win the lottery and not have to pick and choose.
Happy Fan Mail Friday Anna
Greetings to all the Griffinites and thanks for sharing what you have made. Martha, the Carte Homme dresses are fabulous and unique. That sweet group of cards from Phoebe are all so lovely. And I agree with Mir in her parody of Anna “How About You?” I love her style and her kind heart too!
I love the Carte Homme dress cards made by Martha. Anna – I was listening to Win It Wednesday and hunted and hunted for the Carte Noire paper crafting kit so I could purchase it. I finally emailed your customer service people to see where and when i could purchase it. Stephanie is such a wonderful part of your team – she is always so quick to respond and such a joy to hear from – anyway I’ll be watching HSN in August so I can purchase the kit!! I’d love to win a kit as well, as I like having two sets of your paper crafting kits.
THE PULLY CARD IS SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT. GREAT JOB!!
Lovely makes! I am in my craft room working on the first Christmas card of 2022. SO excited that Tuesday is coming very soon. Can’t wait to see alk that Anna has to offer. I am making a pop up gift card now. FUN!
I am so impressed with Martha’s Carte Femme interpretation of the Carte Homme kit.
I just finished five cards for the men in my family. However after seeing her clever cards I plan to make some tuxedo dresses for my nieces. They will love them.
Love the dresses made from the suit kit. Might it inspire another whole kit?
Such great creations as always. There were such lovely cards to honor our country as well as the patriotic dress. I loved Phoebe’s cards, especially the Honor Flight one for veterans as Illinois also has Honor Flights. Can you please tell us the date of your birthday, Anna? Enjoy your weekend and get some rest before your big events Tuesday.
It’s so exciting to see my creative friend, Martha Frischknecht with Martha’s Paper Crafting highlighted this week. She is sooooo creative. I love all the fun creative ideas all our Anna Friends make! Thanks Anna for sharing the love!
