Fan Mail Friday- May 20th, 2022
Happy Friday! We have had quite the crafty week, and are filming this ahead of today for a little r & r! Crop at Home 2 was a beautiful celebration of crafting where we got to meet people in the community, create scrapbooks for our most treasured memories and interact in a beautiful way. We love our dedicated time together each week, and always look forward to hearing about what is happening in your lives.
Come chat with us for today’s Fan Mail Friday!
Anita sent this sweet card full of hugs and love. It’s great to hear from you this week, friend!
Anita also wrote that we have made her free time so much fun! We love to hear that!
Laurel wrote to tell us how thankful she was to win a Crop At Home 2 ticket. We are so glad that you enjoyed the event and the big box of contents!
We received a warm hello from Marcey! She and her friend Cathy did Crop at Home together in Wisconsin. Hearing from you each week is the best!
Lu wrote to thank us for Crop at Home 2! You are very welcome, Lu! We hope that you had a wonderful time at the event, and we adore your train full of flowers.
Patti sent one of her famous long letters to catch up, along with this pretty card and 2 adorable blankets for Duke and Georgie. Hopefully one day we will meet in person again!
Here is the inside of Patti’s swivel and pop card.
Fan Mail Friday is such a special time of the week. Thank you all for what you sent in to be read, shared and shown. We hope that our intentions of inspiration, celebration and joy follow you all through the year! If you would like to send something for Fan Mail Friday, you can submit your card or project to 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324. We would absolutely love to hear from you!
Bye for now,
So much beautiful creation it is hard to keep with all the items and inspirations. I loved all of the projects.
Do you have instructions to make Patti’s Swivel and Pop card? It is beautiful & I would like to try to make one myself. I’ve just recently found your website & you have the most beautiful cards I’ve ever seen & I’d like to see if I can learn how to make them.
Love fan mail Friday. Such talented Griffinites. Especially love the train pulling the flower cart. Great idea. I will probably steal it….actually, I will definitely steal it.
Thanks everyone. You truly are an inspiration.
What lovely handmade card creations!!👏🏽👏🏽 Thank you for the craftspiration everyone!🥰😍
I so enjoy your sharing the wonderful cards that you receive from your adoring Griffinites. I wasn’t able to participate in CAH2, however I am looking forward to your fall Create. I want to praise and thank you and your staff for all the joy and connection you have created for so many of us. The use of today’s technology to gather/share ideas with other paper crafters is wonderful. You and the staff have created a community of “friends” who love, share and care about one another personally or virtually. In both cases it is very real! Thank you.
Blessings to all of you
So happy you are getting R & R at a tropical resort, you deserve it. Loved all the cards and the puff of smoke, so cute! Also, I liked your outfit today but then again you always do look nice:-)
One guess who is thinking of adopting a cat, hmmm?
Hugs and Prayers for you and your amazing staff!
Always fun on fan mail Friday ♥️♥️
I enjoy seeing the cards everyone sends. Hope no one mi ds if I use their ideas o. My own cards. Thank you again.
I love the slimline best because of the pansies. but all are beautiful.
What a wonderful fan mail Friday Love the train card and the towels All of course are so very beautiful ❤️
Love them all, especially the train.
It is so nice to see some swivel and pop again! Plus the beautiful cards sent in this week are also so full of gratefulness and joy! The kitty blankets are over the top nice!
They are all so beautiful and gives me great ideas!
Anna, you bring me joy every time I use your products, making cards for friends and even selling some so I can buy more stuff. I have products from way back that I have been using, adding more current embellishments to bring them more fun. I enjoy the mini empress so much and will be waiting to see if you design more dies that size. Rest up, dear friend. Have a lovely holiday.
Wow,amazing cards! Fan Mail Friday is alwaysuch a delight! Carla
Best Vacation to you Be Safe busy card making June is most cards sent to family Craft room so very fun for me 86 yrs young I try to make A Few Cards every day Anna you help me with joy of living!

Anna – Wonderful Fan Mail!
Glad you’re on a Tropical Island.🌴🌺🌴 Having rest & fun!
Just love those kitty blankets! And Lu’s pink train cart! 🌸
I am still working on my projects. It was the best ever CAH2 !
This FMF is a power house of great crafting. What pretty cards, each and everyone! I’m inspired by the train, and Duke and Georgie will love their handsome towels! I appreciate how wonderfully everyone expressed their gratitude to you, Anna. I am still at it with CAH2. I think I cannot get enough of it! Most of all, I am so grateful you are getting a few days away in a tropical location. With Finishing School Live coming up, it is a brief rest for you. I cannot thank you enough for all you do, Anna. Again, many thanks to everyone at AGI who gave us the finest crafting virtual event, but especially you, Anna.
I am SO happy to hear you are taking some time off, Anna. It is well deserved. Take the time to relax and rejuvenate yourself. I hope your team does to.
Create Crop@Home 2 was just WONDERFUL!! From the papers to the projects to the videos of our fellow Griffinites and then that fabulous Craft Room at the end of the day to meet and greet fellow crafters. It was definitely non stop JOY.
I love seeing what your fans send you.
Cutting down the train car to make a cart load of flowers. FAB!!!
Fanmail Friday is a great way to share crafting ideas. I enjoyed this very much. tfs-stay well.
Such beautiful projects great job everyone. Everyone have a great weekend.
Happy Fri-Yay!! Such wonderful inspiration on this Fan Mail Friday. Thank you everyone for sharing with Anna and thank you, Anna, for sharing with us. Have a wonderful weekend! 😊
Help Help Help: I don’t know if this is the place to ask for help but here I go. First of all thanks for the best class that I have ever taken. Thanks to you and all the others that made it possible. I hope you will do more scrapbook pages in the future. I made copies of my directions so that I would be sure to have all that was covered in class. I have all of the copies up to and included “Paisley Scrapbook Class 6:Title Page.” I even ordered the extra packs so I could make extra pages. Thanks to someone for your help.
Anna and team, thank you for sharing these amazing cards. Found a different way to use
flourishes – steam from train engine. Great thought. Also making a train car full of flowers.
Love seeing everyone’s creations
Everything is so beautiful!!! I am glad to see all the ladies thank you and have appreciation for you,
Love those blankets for Duke and Georgia.
Anna, have a wonderful vacation, you deserve it!
Thank you for a wonderful weekend of Crop@Home2. I learned so much all three days, even if for knowing a few paper tricks that I have never done on a scrapbook page (and I started scrapbooking in the early 80’s)! I eventually switched over making digital scrapbooks, since I had to make 4 copies of each wedding for my nephews, sister and Mom. Getting back to analog scrapbooking, it’s treat for me to use your wonderful papers and dies. This week I’ll probably be getting my Anniversary Paper Tricks Folders, and make the final scrapbook page with folded papers. What a Treat!
FMF is another treat for me as well. What creativity! I like Lu’s idea of turning the train into a wagon (caboose) of flowers, clever! I would consider purchasing the die just for that!
Good to see FMF today. While most of you have neen creating lovely cards and other wonderful paper crafting items, I have been working in my garden. In NE Ohio, past couple years we have gone from winter, directly to almost summer. Soon I will be back to card making😍
It’s a hard life but someone has to live it on a tropical island. 😂😂😂 Have a great, well deserved vacation.
Love all the cards.
I especially like the card with the green primrose and green stems on the simple gold framed card with the cursive script on it. Sometimes, simple is just right!!
Have a wonderful holiday……you have earned it.
Love all the cards and seeing what everyone makes. I bought the Train die and will be making some soon. Thank you to the other crafters and most of all to Anna and team for all your amazing talent and brining us great products . GOD BLESS Hester Hatfield
I love the yellow and pink roses on Anita’s card. And, I just received the train as a gift from my daughter. Lu made a beautiful train card. Thank you all for sharing your creations.
So many pretties everyone and Patti, you’re so thoughtful! Love everything shown this week!! Happy crafting to all!!
So very happy to hear that you are taking a few days OFF!! Give yourself the time to recharge for the events ahead…
Lovely items at FMF – Happy Weekend to all at AGI!!
Anna, So glad you DO take time for yourself. Since you are in such demand no wonder you have to find an island to rest up on. Blessings and refreshment.
Enjoy your time off, Anna. It is well deserved! I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next!
All of these cards are so beautiful. Love seeing all the cards that others make, it’s so inspiring. Thank you for sharing, Anna.
Love the happy mail!
The Griffinite community is so special. Had an amazing time at CAH2 and learned way more than I expected to. Thank you!!
Anna griffin lovely Christmas and birthday craft and have a signed pictures of you
I am working on my pages for the scrapbook. We are having a reunion this summer and I am doing something special for my mom who is not with us this time. The [a[ers are perfect for this project.
Like all the ideas but I really like the train idea of a bed of flowers. What a great idea.
Fan Mail Friday is such an uplifting way to end the week. I look forward each Friday to seeing all the items that have been sent each week. Anna, I hope you enjoy your time off on your tropical island – it is well deserved!
PLEASE……..could we have some of what Laurel used in making her Beautiful Card!!! It’s perfect.
Love the cards! Patty, I love your train card. Great idea for the smoke coming out. Thank you for that tip. Anna, I hope you have a wonderful vacation! You sure deserve some time off. I’ve often wondered how you keep going, glad you can finally relax. 🏝🏖😎
I shake my head in amazement every day when I see your blog. Fan Mail Friday never ceases to amaze and entice me into the craft room. In my case it’s two rooms. albeit small ones. Shout out to all your contributors.
Lovely Fan Mail Friday. Good Job all !
Anna it was short but sweet. Have a nice vacation on mr.
Happy Fan Mail Friday to all! Such a beautiful choice of cards today 🌺 Lu your train is stunning as a flower car loving it! 💕 Anna enjoy your vacation-well deserved 🌺
Yes, Fan Mail Friday is a very special time of the week, as you say! It’s like a flower-and-gift delivery that arrives in my email box, to click open all its beauty and cheer! Everything is lovely, and Lu’s Antique Train is adorable! Thank you for the BEST-TIME FUN of CROP 2 At Home, Anna, for your gift of sending and teaching. I learned so much, especially about composition and mitering–I hope to get the Miter’s touch like you, Anna! With all my gratitude for your kindness and generosity, sending BIG (((HUGS))) across the miles!
I second the vote for the grandfather clock die.
I was very enamored by the flower arrangements you had. What type of flowers were in those? So beautiful.
Gorgeous cards, 😍
Thanks for sharing! 🌞
Oh what wonderful cards and your special fur babies gifts are so special! Enjoy your vacation on the 🏝 you deserve it! Take care and God Bless you many times over for all that you do with your God given talent!!

Great creativity, everyone!
I have the swivel card set. It great to see a card made by these dies. What a beautiful card!
