Easter Crafting Inspiration!

Hi there!

It’s hard to believe Easter is just around the corner- it came so early this year! Two of our favorite new products for 2016 were the Sweet Salutations Pop Up Card Making Kit and the Seasonal Spring Cutting Dies, both of which contained fabulous Easter themed elements.

We thought we’d give you some last minute inspiration from these collections so you can make the most of your crafting this week. Enjoy!

    Will there be more embleshments for the Fantastic flips? Love the cards, want something masculine or beach/nautical?

  2. Anna Griffin says:

    It depends on what device I reply from! This is from my computer. Most times it is from my phone!

  3. Anna Griffin says:

    The set of 10 Spring Seasonal Cutting Dies set that was offered along with the Spring Seasonal Embossing folder set. We are working to get these back in stock.

  4. Laura "LA LA" Martinez says:

    On the Easter card samples above, where can I get the Easter die cuts used. Was I on a different planet when they came out? Thank you.

  5. Teri Griewahn says:

    I am devastated!! My order from the show on March 16 was supposed to arrive on the 23rd. Even though I was home (and watched her at my mailbox), my postal carrier apparently didn’t feel like delivering the package and returned it to HSN the same day. I have to say this was the fault of just the one person. The post office is trying to get it back before it reaches HSN. At that point, there will be nothing HSN can do because of how they handle returns. So I will be out of luck, and of course the things I ordered were all sold out that day. So I may have to wait months before they come back in stock to get hold of these goodies, which of course included the new flip cards kit. Trying hard to be cheerful but it’s tough. Even so, wishing a blessed Easter to Anna, her staff, and all the other Griffinites.

  6. Diann K. says:

    Hi Carol the Easter die was in thre autos hip seasonal dies. I just loved it. I went back to Hsn to check that Zi received all the dies. Hope you have this one.

  7. Dianne Kozil says:

    Yes, Anna I too would LOVE to see the word HAPPY in future dies. I am sure we your fans will be adding to this list. Thank you, Diaanne

  8. Margie Fulcher says:

    Dear Anna: I was late tuning in to the HSN Craft Day. I tried to buy the Fantastic Flip card collection but it was sold out. Are you going to offer that again? I love when you are on HSN. I have many of your collections. All your cards are so beautiful. I especially liked the flip cards. Thanks for sharing your talent.

  9. Carol says:

    Happy Easter Anna and Company.
    May I ask a question? Which set of dies had the word Easter? Did I miss it?
    I got the Auto ship seasonal dies, Had mom and dad dies.
    Thank you so much.

  10. Hazel says:

    I’ve been looking back over the years at my stash of Anna goodies and photos of cards I’ve made and I also have a ‘squirrel box’ where I keep all my favourites as I’m too mean to use them and keep them just to look at and hoard…sad.
    Wouldn’t it be good if Anna ran a competition to ask for our favorites over the many years and did a re issue of the most popular.
    I have 3D stickers of Lilac blossom and primroses that I can’t bear to part with and I’ve never seen them again so I’m sure there are others out there who would love to see something come back as a blast from the past.

  11. Mary R. Huff says:

    Laura, I too thought it was strange Anna’s logo wasn’t posted. Hopefully Anna will reply. Happy Easter to all.

  12. Laura "La La" Marinez says:

    Anna when you’re leaving a message on these blogs, don’t you always mark it with your logo? I saw your reply on “Thank you for Watching” regarding Bill doing work on your email list. Your logo was not attached to that message. I was suspicious. Am I over thinking this?
    I received my Spring embossing folders. Two of the folders were duplicates and had to send them back. This is the second time happening to me on my auto ships. Embossed Frames Trellis embossed sentiments were duplicated and I sent back the next day. HSN said they were sold out and there are no replacements. Will you be selling these in the future? I really liked this set. Thanks again Anna for your patience and listening to your fellow creators. Regards and have a glorious Easter. La La

  13. Debbie says:

    I was traveling while the HSN show was on but I had to order and order and order ever chance I had. The boxes are opened and things stacked in my living room by a very sweet husband and it will be Christmas in March when I get home. Thank you Anna for more great products.

  14. Andrew says:

    Count me in on the Easter Kit begging list, lots of primroses, violets, primula Auricula, crocus, snowdrops, cherry blossom, narcissi the list is endless. There could be a bumper box of 3D stickers….Hope it happens just after Christmas so I can crack on with a mass of cards

  15. Mrs. A says:

    I just love this sweet salutations pop-up kit. I’ve been busy for days with it. When you put up these samples, I immediately replicated the pink flowers for my mom, the lilac for DH, and the yellow riot of tulips for my DD. Once I figured out which part of the pop-up each element went on, the more is more principal kicked in. This kit challenges but there is no lack of elements to fulfill the desire to make a masterpiece. I’m just thrilled today to finally get the Flip Card kit, spring dies and embossing folders. Happy Easter and thank you, Anna.

  16. deborah j.t.m. says:

    I mailed about a dozen cards on Monday, finally finished my Easter Cards from your kit–we think a lot alike as my cards looked very similar to your layouts…… and yes!! I rec’d my new Easter die just in time to make a few more cards to give to my husband and neighbors… no mailing needed!

    Hint Hint Anna— WE need a “Happy” die that matches/could match up to the auto ship/holiday dies… 😀

  17. TeranceH in Texas says:

    PS; I got my stuff on Tuesday 03-22, and my living room looks like a AG warehouse, i must have lost my mind i couldn’t stop ordering and i have so much i could’t look at everything last night, cant wait to get home today and play.

  18. TeranceH in Texas says:

    Hope you all have a great Easter weekend, I have come up with one item i have not see on Anna Griffin. I would love to have a paper pack in your Anna Griffin Cream. I was making a card and couldn’t figure out what looked weird and why it didn’t work with my AG floral papers then i remember you talking about the mimc. you base paper is a cream and it took me a week to find a cream that looked good with your printed stock.

  19. Judy vanzandt says:

    I just wanted to leave you a note of thank you!! I received my flip card kit today and I am so amazed at the care in packing. The tissue paper is a really classy touch!!!

  20. Sylvia J Fox says:

    Anne,

    I want to thank you so much for all the wonderful and new products you brought us on March 16. I couldn’t stop ordering. Every time I saw something new of yours, I ordered it. You are really such a beautiful person to share your wonderful talent with all of us, and I am very new to crafting, but because of you, I have been able to make some very lovely cards. I hope you have the most safe and blessed Easter, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming soon. Again, thank you for your special gift you share with all of us!

  21. Marcie Smith says:

    Anna These are gorgeous. Just got all my goodies from your March 16th show and I am already having so much fun. You have given us every opportunity to create such beautiful masterpieces. Thanks to you and your team and wishing you all a Wonderful Easter.
    Marcie

  22. Roxann Higgins says:

    Just got my goodies yesterday and have made a flip card. Haven’t tried the dies yet but I am sure I won’t be disappointed. As usual the designs are so beautiful. Thanks again for making us feel so creative. Happy Easter and beautiful Spring!

  23. Marcie Smith says:

    Yes Bob, what a tradgedy!!! The best way you could help is to make sure you get out and vote!! Hopefully we will get a strong leader in that will be willing to fight terrorism on their level and stop trying to talk them into submission. That will never work. We have got to stop worrying so much about being politically correct, and take the necessary actions to keep our nation safe so that we do not fall pray to this happening here.
    God Bless
    Marcie

  24. Linda DeVries says:

    Well said, Bob. We need to be observant as we go about our daily lives;and let’s hope for a strong leader for our country. I do agree that the community on this blog brings good will and joy; and Anna Griffin, Inc. facilitates soul-nourishing creativity and beauty to brighten our lives.

  25. Jane Gotelli says:

    I could not believe my luck today. I have waited every day to receive my flip cards and all the goodies from the 16th. When did they arrive? Five minutes before I had to leave for a dentist appointment. That appointment seemed to last a very long time. Love everything I received. Very happy with so many masculine embellishments. Also very happy with the salutations kit. Love having the matching inside and outside and between everything I received there are many more get well, sympathy and thinking of you. Us older folks unfortunately need more of those. You said you have been making these goodies for twentytwo years. It seems longer than that I have been buying your stationary when we had stationary stores. I loved giving your beautiful stationary for gifts. Didn’t know I would get to know you so well years later. Happy Easter to you and Georgie.

  26. Gayle says:

    Hi Anna,
    I want to say each time you are on HSN your crafty creativeness gets better n better. I recieved a whole bunch of new toys today and will finish opening them now as I just finished work. They could not have come at a better time. I absolutely love your products. I’m so amazed at your never ending products that get more fun and more exciting with each airing. I record when ever your on and if possible I watch you on my iPhone or iPad when at work. That is not an easy task anymore as I have been working as a telephonic triage RN so calls literally come in one after another. I am so happy my new toys have arrived as tomorrow is my day off. I would like to also comment on something. I love your enthusiasm when your doing the HSN shows. Your so sweet and encouraging to every caller no matter that you have been up since the crack of dawn. One of these times I would love to talk to you. You have a wonderful Easter. See you soon. I’ll have to work some overtime. Hahaha

  27. Linda says:

    hello just a note I got my pop card plates
    today use the green mat that it
    comes with for cutting as it bigger
    then any green mat that we have
    had before.
    Linda

  28. Bob H says:

    My box of inspiration has arrived just in time to spread the grace of Easter but it has been overshadowed by the massacre in Belgium. On this blog we have formed a strong community united by sincere kindness. I think it is because we have the example of an amazing woman who brings out the best in us. Will our cards and such change the world? Probably not. But the benevolence here is what we can show to the rest of the world when we are threatened. These craft products I appreciate so much help me to get through even these awful times by reminding me what is important.
    What a mouthful!
    I was feeling a bit guilty today but decided I needed a change in perspective. However, if someone knows how we can help these poor folks, count me in!

  29. Becky Jo Cannon says:

    Hi Anna! Thanks for the inspiration as always. I’ve been working on Easter cards and Thank you cards. I will continue to make thank you cards in between others. I have so many people to thank, that have helped me the past 5 years through many treatments. I’ve learned to kind of mix it up by having the theme of the holiday, etc with an extra special thanks in it. I’m one of your Hawaii fans, I’m in Maui. I don’t know if it will happen, but I am hoping to come to create. Thanks for always staying connected to your loyal fans/customers. I love all these people!

  30. Yadyra Marrero says:

    The cards are beautiful. Your products are wonderful. I love everything that I have purchased and think of you and your staff as part of my family. THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL YOU DO.

  31. Sue K says:

    Thanks for all the Beautiful Easter cards I made some cute ones using my Cricut Explore for the grand kids and just 1 of yours for a very dear friends like the first one here. I did receive all my goodies from you and hope to play with the flip cards tomorrow! Thanks for all the thing you make for us!! HAPPY EASTER!

  32. HollyG says:

    Dear Miss Anna & Co.,

    Wishing you all a most blessed Easter.

    The inspiration is much appreciated and I thank you for these wonderful ideas!

  33. Lin M. says:

    Thank you for the Easter inspiration! That first card is my favorite! I made a pop-up Easter card from Sweet Salutations and sent it to my mom today.
    I just got my HSN order today – I can’t wait until this weekend to have time to play with the Fantastic Flips kit & other goodies. The Rose Collection is even more beautiful in person. I might just put it all over my walls so I can see it every day! 🙂

    Happy Easter Anna to you & your family and all your wonderful staff who work so hard to make events like last week possible!!!

  34. Carol Schult says:

    Happy Easter to you and yours Anna. Are you going to have more pop up card die sets? When I went to order them they were already sold out. I was so disappointed. I received half my order today and was so excited. Can’t wait for the rest. I love love love your stuff. Thank you so much.

  35. Pat Marsh says:

    Hi Anna,
    Received my huge box of goodies today. When are you planning your next visit to HSN?
    Thank you for these new creations. Enjoy your day!!

  36. Sue Swanson says:

    Happy Easter to you and Georgie! I received my HSN purchases today. Can’t wait to start playing.

  37. Aurora Riffee says:

    Anna I haven’t gotten any of my orders yet and I can hardly stand it. I read all the reviews and everyone is so happy.
    I am going to have to move further East to relieve my anxiety and be able to receive orders in two to three days. I also would love to see an Anna Griffin Easter set with dies papers and sentiments. Thanks and Happy Easter to you and all your helpers.

  38. Karen Fabian says:

    Anna,
    Wishing you and your staff a wonderful and Happy Easter! You are always inspiring me.
    Easter is one of my favorite holidays since my birthday is always close by. The only thing that puzzles me is that in 59 years I did not remember my birthday (4/2) ever being on Easter Sunday. I thought it never had however when I did a little research.I discovered that Easter fell on 4/2 in both 1961 and 1972. I hope I am still around to celebrate in both 2051 and 2056 since these are the next 2 times.

  39. Debbie Jordan says:

    Wooo Hoooo! Got my shipment in today. Can’t wait to get into it and make some cards and try the minc.

  40. Mewsmomtoo says:

    Coco, you expressed my sentiments perfectly. Very well written! Hope you have a wonderful Easter.

  41. Kristine says:

    Are these beautiful cards all from the Sweet Salutations Pop Up Card Making Kit and the Seasonal Spring Cutting Dies? They are fantastic. Wonderful job. Thank you for the inspirations & the samples. Please keep posting samples. They are wonderful to inspire and just look. Thank you very much.

  42. Mewsmomtoo says:

    Mary, I love your idea too! Wouldn’t that be a wonderful kit? Don’t forget the Spring lambs too. For those who don’t celebrate Easter, maybe it could have Happy Spring sentiments.

  43. Joyce Gifford says:

    thank you so much for the ideas for Easter cards. This is sooooo appreciated!!! I love them as does everyone who receives them.

  44. Cruz says:

    Eeekkk! I have my Sweet Salutations kit already, but I need my other Griffin goodies to come in, so I can crank out some of these gorgeous cards! Wednesday night will be a CRAZY card making night! =) <3

  45. Karen Krum says:

    Thank you Anna for the inspiration on the Easter cards. I didn’t get to buy anything last week as funds were a bit low. But I did spend the entire day watching and dreaming of what I might want to get when the time allows.

    Have a Blessed Easter.

  46. Barbara Smith from Crofton says:

    A little inspiration is exactly what we need at this point. Thank you very much. I wish you a beautiful Easter and a happy spring time.

  47. Doug G. says:

    All these cards are STUNNING and a great inspiration !!! Can’t wait for last week’s order from HSN to arrive !!! Have a beautiful Easter and wonderful Spring Anna and company you all deserve it !!! So far 2016 has been UNBELIEVABLE !!!

  48. Shellie Fontana says:

    Hoppy BEAUTIFUL Easter, Anna and the A-Team! I love ALL the beautifully made examples you brought to HSN last week, and especially the lavender ‘Just a Note’ (to say Happy Easter) card posted in today’s BLOG. You have such style and talent, and I believe your Grandmother was right–even though I didn’t know you when you were age 4! Your TEAM is so CFEATIVE and I want to thank them, also! I am looking forward to the delivery of my Flips Card Kit, which I hope arrives before I make a cross-country drive to stay with and take care of my parents for 2 weeks. I will hope to make them a FLIPS-tastic card and personally give it to them! (((HUGS))) from Texas

  49. Granny D says:

    Me too, add St. Pats to that, 4th of July, maybe a Holiday Only kit (leaving out Halloween, Christmas & Valentines Day, because you already have those covered) I remember getting a card kit a few years ago with a sticker for Easter, St. Pats, Halloween & Christmas & I hoarded the bunny for a couple of years…..

  50. Grama Pei says:

    OH, glorious cards for a glorious Easter time! SO beautifully-done! Thank you! Happy Easter to you each, and many blessings to you on Easter Day and every day.

  51. June Estep says:

    great inspiration. Weather in Spring can be a little “iffy”, but does not deter me from enjoying creating these lovely sweet Spring and Easter and Mother’s Day delights…….wouldnt mind in future springs to have clouds and rain and raindrops and rain coats and rain hats and umbrellas………..april showers bring…..well, you know.

  52. Judy Pittman says:

    Hey Anna,
    Last night I was going to make Easter cards with my pop-up card kit. They should have been made over the weekend, but the early Easter alarm did not go off until yesterday.
    Then…UPS rang my doorbell and dropped off almost 17 lbs of AGG (Anna Griffin Goodies). By 1 a.m. I had opened and fondled every piece in every box while periodically squealing and clutching my heart. They made me totally forget about making my Easter cards, particularly the ones I should have mailed today.
    Your card kits make everything so easy and fast, as along as I copy your design. I definitely will be using some of your beautiful designs tonight. Now since I like being creative and play around with all the things, I take my time.
    Anna, I join all of your friends, and fans to thank you for all of your wonderful products. They make us look so creative and talented. Now if they could only make me look younger, and taller, and thinner, and smarter, etc., etc., etc.

  53. Peachy W says:

    Very beautiful cards – great for inspiration! My HSN box arrives today – so excited! – so many new great dies and all – have been planning my cards in my mind awaiting my goodies! We are so lucky that you love what you do Anna, because we all get to benefit from your beautiful designs. You really out did yourself for the March event. So excited for May – can’t imagine what you will do next! Hoping for more word and icon dies – to round out my die chest! And of course, more beautiful paper sets! A big thank you to you and all of your team – you help us all to create such beautiful things and then share them with others – we are all so blessed! Happy Easter!

  54. Viana says:

    Hi Anna, I love the cards that u do for us crafters, I want to request a Mother’s Day card making kit only for Mother’s Day, for sisters, aunts, mother’s, grandmothers, granddaughters, girl friends, I have made Mother’s Day cards but only a couple and I really need to make a lot more, so please invent a card making kit only for Mother’s Day, thank u
    Viana

  55. TERRY MORROW says:

    Received my first of many packages yesterday…beautiful sets. love the embossing folders and the dies the best. Cant’ wait to get all my goodies.

  56. Debbie Dunn says:

    Hey Anna, it’s Me, Debbie Dunn ☺️

    Inspiring cards you are sharing with us.
    You are just like a fine wine, you just keep getting better and better, just Superb!!!!
    We Love You !!

  57. Sandy says:

    Happy Easter to Anna and staff !! I’ve received most of my HSN purchases including the flip card kit and the pop up dies and Spring embossing folders and dies. I’m just blown away by all of this !! Everything is so beautiful, and I’m so excited by the personal creativity that we can now all experiment with thanks to the cutting dies for the cards and all of the tools you’ve provided us with !! We will never be able to get enough of your card kits and paper and embellishments and such, but it is so wonderful to also be able to “create” cards ourselves thanks to you and your staff !! Looking forward to the next time you’re on HSN !! Until then, happy crafting to all & thanks so much for all that you do for us!! — Sandy
    P.S. I made a birthday pop up card for my daughter & she soooo loved it — wait until she “flips” for the next card I make for her !!

  58. Andrea says:

    Hi Anna, I just want to thank you for the wonderful cards. They will give me inspiration! I wish you and your family and staff a wonderful holiday weekend!! Happy Easter to all of you!!!

  59. BARBARA SHIKIAR says:

    Hi Anna and Team,

    Love the cards! I save your blogs for inspiration. All of the ideas expressed in your blogs are wonderful, including today’s. Thanks Anna for your loyalty to all of your dedicated fans. May you and all of your staff have a wonderful and blessed Easter.

  60. Kim k says:

    Beautiful examples Anna
    ! I have a request
    . Would you consider bringing back the bouquet die cuts? I think it would be nice to have some basket diecuts and some seasonal floral and foliage toppers. Thanks for all that you do!

  61. Mary Speicher says:

    Happy Easter to your family and Georgie. My flip card kit should arrive today – can’t wait. Are you going to have holiday wheels? Mary and my black cat, Juliet

  62. Anita Lou says:

    My goodies are starting to arrive from HSN and I can’t wait to get started in my craft room. Always looking forward to your next show and seeing all the new ideas that you come up with to make us so happy. Have a great EASTER!

  63. Cindy says:

    Me again Anna. After looking further at the Fantastic Flips card kit and looking at your examples, I realized that I don’t always need a front sentiment on my flips so everything in my kit is perfect! So sorry I rushed to conclusions. My bad! Which is great because now that means there are really extra because some of those sentiments can stand alone beautifully! Which was your intention all along. Have a Happy Easter!

  64. Mary Jackson says:

    I would love it if you would make an Easter kit next year. Eggs, bunnies, chicks, flowers, crosses, Easter greetings all in your Anna Griffin beautiful spring colors !

  65. RandellynB says:

    Thank you for posting these beautiful inspirations! I should have a box of goodies waiting for me by the time I get home this evening, so the timing of this post in perfect. I absolutely love the first card! I love spring and these cards just bring a smile to everyone.

  66. Mary R. Huff says:

    ANNA, I LOVE MY SALUTATION KIT AND I MAY ORDER ANOTHER ONE! THANKS TO YOU AND YOUR TEAM I GOT RAVE REVIEWS FROM A DEAR FRIEND WHO BUYS YOUR…MY…CARDS! HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU!

  67. Dianne McDonald says:

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Beauty in the making. This is such a treat.

    Happy Easter to you, Anna, and your staff and designers.

  68. COCO says:

    Easter is my favorite time of the year. Spring has sprung, flowers galore, lovely weather. and Christ has risen .Perfect. I have loved making your sweet salutation Easter cards and look forward to the Spring salutations arriving this week. May God bess you in every way. YOu have brought such joy to the hearts of the givers and the receivers of your cards.

  69. Amy says:

    Anna, thank you for the lovely cards to help us…you’re right, Easter is upon us too soon…but with your wonderful samples to guide, we’ll be quick like bunnies and get everything out on time!

    Bless you at this beautiful season, Amy

  70. Carol says:

    Thank you for the inspiration Anna.
    Hope you have a wonderful Easter.
    Can not wait for all my craft day items to arrive!

  71. Linda DeVries says:

    Happy Easter card-making to all. Anna, could you make us a kit of just lots of Easter elements (die cuts, etc) to purchase? Lots of bunnies, chicks, colorful and decorated eggs,white and colorful lilies, etc.?

  72. DeAnn says:

    This is just what I need, inspiration from our dear Anna! I am going into the craft room with these cards in mind this afternoon. Happy Easter and blessings to The Anna Griffin family!

  73. Cindy says:

    Love your things Anna! Thanks for the new ideas shown today! I just received my Fantastic Flips kit. Love it! However, the package of sentiments for the fronts of the flips only contained half of what it should have, 24 instead of 48. My bag of sentiments for the back of the flips has 48 in it. The kit is sold out on HSN or I would exchange it. HELP! Sorta defeats the purpose of the card if I don’t have a sentiment for both sides.

  74. Irene Alexander says:

    I have those beautiful cards pinned. Awaiting for my purchases to arrive tomorrow; this will include the holiday die cuts. Wishin you and your staff a Happy Easter!

  75. Carol Rowland says:

    Beautiful as always – Have a terrific Easter Anna and team. Thank you for all the beautiful things!

  76. Susie says:

    Such warming cards,spring is one of my favorite seasons. Each card is creative and so beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration. Just got all my things I ordered. Yea, going to make cards all day to help me keep my mind off what’s going on in Brussels. Have friends there ,praying for safety and peace.

  77. Gale says:

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful creations. I hope to get my kit by tomorrow to make a few of these cards.
    You are such an inspiration.
    Happy Easter!!!

  78. Patricia Hollenbeck says:

    Wishing the Anna Griffin team the Happiest Easter of all! I am getting my shipment in today and can hardly wait for all the items, especially the dies. Hopefully I can fit in some card making time before Sunday so I can post a picture or two. I tried to call in when Anna was showing the Giftables set but could not get through to let everyone know how beautiful the set is. Love the Rose Collection very much. Thank You, so much, again.

  79. Karin says:

    Beautiful Easter Cards. My Anna Griffin wish would be for a small guide for the cricut cartridges for those of us who love them but need a little shove into using them to the fullest. I am a person who does not like to waste my beautiful Anna paper on mistakes so a guide would be helpful. Looking forward to seeing how all of you top yourselves after the March HSN show.
