Sue, this is so appreciated and was perfect for celebrating the first day of spring!

Also, you heard it here first, we are going to be doing a Facebook Live interview with Anna on Friday where there will be a special appearance by Georgie! So much fun!

We hope this post inspires you to bust out your set of Beribboned Dies and make something beautiful this weekend! Have a great day and see you soon!

    Dear Anna and Crew!

    I watched the “live” facebook session! It was so great! Loved it and you’re so right, a terrific way to end crating month!

    So happy that you are planning to do a new blog post every Monday as I always love to see what you come up with next!

    Sounds like you will have one busy summer! Whew! You’ll barely have enough time to regroup before Create 3!

    Take a breath!!!

  2. Cheryl Cain says:

    Wow Anna, you really have done it again!! Your products are so amazing. I decided to go on a trip down Memory Lane by going through old projects the other day. I started scrapbooking around 2005-06 using your products at
    a local shop, of course it was your monthly scrapbook pages class, I went to them for two years or so. That is when I fell in love with your designs and style, I absolutely love your products, and yes, I would love to win some!!

  3. Brenda Lawrence says:

    I am in the mist of reorganizing and purging in my craft room and I am so loving the paper storage cube and the drawer cubes!!! They will be great in my room to help me organize some extra papers and little things. I am also loving the die storage as well as the paper cutter for gift wrap! Such cool products Anna!!! Hugs, Brenda

  4. Linda Burt says:

    Oh my goodness, I am so happy, happy to see the organization boxes, I am arranging my supplies in a shoe box under my bed. Wow those are the itemes that I’m looking for. Oh, Anna you make it all look so easy, I just Love your line of products. I just started crafting after the loss of my husband it 2014, and I can honestly say that it has taken me to a whole nother level. I thought that with my loss that I couldn’t go on doing the things that I like, but when I started crafting it sparked such a delightful outlet for me. Thank you for all you do.

  21. deborah j.t.m. says:

    Such a pretty card, so many other ideas just ‘jumpin’ into my head’ after watching your videos.. please keep them coming… a weekly video would be awesome if you can do that!!!
    I have these dies and love them so much, at first I ‘gasped’ that you were covering it up.. but as usual, your way is perfect and works beautiful…Naturally it’s ‘beautiful in the making’ 😀

  22. Connie Johnson says:

    I ooh’d and aah’d myself … over your card and that spring basket. I don’t remember seeing the beribboned dies available though. I’m sure I would have bought them. I love my pocket dies though. So fun and versitile. I also love those Weekly Craft Wonders. Can’t you do those year round??? $20 bucks and free shipping? Count me in. Great value because I love everything you make.

  23. Annette Johnson says:

    The card is so beautiful I love the how-to for the cards and other items we buy from Anna Have a wonderful weekend everyone

  24. Dorci Sprinkle says:

    Love all of your products and appreciate the tutorials. Looking forward to the Product Previews.

  25. Maureen Odell says:

    Thank you for the wonderful tutorial. They give me such wonderful ideas of what to do with my vast collection of your products. The quality of your products is excellent, and beautiful.
    Could you do a tutorial on how to upload a project to you?

  26. Granny D says:

    Beautiful card! Love the instruction as well as the inspiration you have given us over the years.

    It will be so nice to see just how Georgie has grown…..what a sweet fur baby.

  27. Jane says:

    Love this tutorial. Please do this often. It really jump starts my creativity. This card is easy but so beautiful. I can do this. I don’t want to always work with a kit. I have most of your kits so I have a lot to work with. I need ideas like this to give me new ways to use the products I have and new items down the road. Thank you, Anna.

  28. Erin Piehl says:

    Georgie! I am a huge Anna Griffin fan, and a cat person, too, so Friday is on my calendar to catch the LIVE on Facebook. So much “BEAUTIFUL”!

  29. Shelby McDaniel says:

    Wonderful video, great, precise directions! Easy to follow!

    Fun, fun, fun!

    Please please bring Beribboned Dies Set back for those of us who were unable to get it in January!!

    Thanks Anna!

  30. Joan Baker says:

    The basket is really pretty. It would be the perfect gift for anyone in hospital in England as real flowers are banned. Actually it’s a pretty gift for any occasion. I love it.

  31. Barbara Mosher says:

    I love these samples and how tos. My question is I purchased your Go Press and Foil machine. It sold out so fast you did not have time to demonstate it but did mention you would have a video of the demonstration on your Blog. How do I find that? I am anxious to use it but would prefer seeing the video before I ruin anything. Thank You.

  32. Joanne Castto says:

    Well Anna,
    You did it again! I cannot believe what you and your team design. Yesterday was my Birthday and what a nice way to celebrate with such a lovely item. As I have mentioned before my granddaughter and I have new bonding experiences with our card making. Thank you again.

  33. Paulette Duda says:

    beautiful card but instead of covering up the inside of the frame, why not just cut it out and use it on another card?

    Love the cutout, tho

  34. Gail Hobgood says:

    Are you going to offer the Beribboned Dies again? I was on the auto ship but cancelled the last one due to incorrect labeling from HSN. These are beautiful dies and would really love a set.

  35. Carla Haase says:

    Love that your tutorials are so detailed and the pictures make the projects so easy. The card is beautiful and I agree, it should be framed. I would make several and frame for gifts.

  36. Deborah Gilbert says:

    I was wondering where Georgie has been. Will be nice to see that sweet cat. Look forward to next week.

    Happy Weekend to all!

  37. Linda Christiansen says:

    Oh Anna…the card is gorgeous. I would like to leave off sentiment and frame it! The basket is a keepsake…so pretty.
    Anna, I have to tell you about my Anna Griffin Die Binder.
    It is soooo nice but so heavy for me since I have very bad wrists. I am using it with half the pages out, for holiday dies & 5 x 7 dies that are not used as often.
    My solution for all my other dies including Wishful Thinking & Pocket dies:
    I had an Anna Griffin English Garden Mini Album with pocket pages & cards. I got some magnetic vent covers and cut to fit the 4 x 6 & 3 x 4 pockets and put dies on them & in pockets. I used the album cards to write the names of the word dies on facing pages (hard to read dies backwards) I bought three more albums and will have lighter die binders still with beautiful Anna Griffin style!!! I have wishful dies in one album and other dies sorted in others. Labels on binder on shelf make it easy to find what I want.
    Please make a block alphabet die set about 3/4 inch high so we can put proper names on our cards and scrapbook pages??!!!
    Thank you so much for all you do. Looking forward to next week!

  38. Casey Walters says:

    Beautiful card! I agree with Amy C. I would never consider covering up so much of that beautiful die cut, but the results are worth it. Thank you for the wonderful ideas.

  39. Donna DeGraw says:

    Thank you Anna I loved the idea of all the layer. I use to think, that many layer would be to much for a card. But yesterday I got our first $20. Box then I 1 hour later a friend had order some boxes of flowers so now I can make a few cards. I’m still down but doing a little bit better. Now I hope you well like the NEW cards like Anna make. I love all of cards and they are so beautiful. Thanks Anna for your wonderful talent.

  40. Jane Forrest says:

    This was wonderful to watch. Please, please, please bring back Beribboned back. All four dies are so pretty!

  41. BARBARA SHIKIAR says:

    Hi Anna and Team,

    Love the tutorials. They are such a gift. They inspire our creativity and help us imagine new and beautiful designs. Thank you so much for all that you do.

  42. jessica says:

    Hi Anna thank you for giving us this lovely tutorial. I am somewhat new to this wonderful world of crafting I love the way you show each project I always wanted to do inking but was intimated of how it would come out but thanks to you I will give it a try. I got the Cricut machine, cuttlebug, and so many of you card kits I am loving my new hobby

  43. Michelle McNamara says:

    Beautiful! Love those cards! Anna will you be doing a tutorial on the punch set in the near future?

  44. Pamela V. says:

    I really enjoy your bog and beautiful cards. I can take a look and get inspiration for a card project…thank you!

  45. Denice with a " c " says:

    These dies are so inspiring. Just loving these videos. So much fun to watch. Keep up the good work Anna.

  46. Karen Asselin says:

    Love this card but I have to say. That basket Sue Kurdt sent in is incredible. What a clever idea!!

  47. Gwen Ogburn says:

    Gorgeous card. I love everything you bring us. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Happy crafting!

  48. Anne with an "e" says:

    Thank you, as always, for the time and effort you put into all these tutorials – we really, really appreciate them! (Do you and your staff ever rest?) Thank you, also, for sharing the pocket die basket – I purchased that set (how could I not?), but doubt I would have thought up something so clever. (Can’t wait to try it, though!) Looking forward to the next round of sneak peeks!
    Regards, Anne

  49. Pamela Nelson says:

    I cannot live without that huge diecut!
    The card simply knocked my socks off!
    Anna, if I designed your products myself they would be the same. I am awed by your talent!
    Thank you!

  50. Becky Jo Cannon says:

    Anna, I loved this tutorial. I liked the use of the stamp on the embossed paper. And the entire layering. And what a beautiful fun basket & card from Sue! Love that! Thanks for all this non stop fun of creating.

  51. Amy Crane says:

    I agree w/ Gena’s comment below…I thought I’d pass out, too…LOL!!
    But, you convinced me to keep watching and learning. Glad I did!!

    Amy

  52. Elaine says:

    This card is beautiful! I love how the colors come together so pleasantly! I love your videos, they always help me, when I need it the most.

  53. Amy Crane says:

    Anna, thank you for taking time to inspire us w/ fresh ideas and new ways of looking at our beautiful supplies. When you showed the first group of these dies, I signed up for autoship…I love every one of the dies in all this group!! And glitter paper? Just a ‘wow’ look.
    I do so dislike covering up these gorgeous dies, but this example is lovely…I’m glad you show us possibilities that work.
    My birthday, our anniversary yesterday…my husband is even making my cards now and creating beautiful looks!! I told him I’d hire him to create cards and I’ll glue everything on!!!

    Thanks again, best wishes to you, Amy

  54. Gena Greenlee says:

    Very pretty, although I thought I was going to pass out when you covered that big, beautiful die!! Not really, but it sure was pretty!! I do like how the card turned out!!! Thanks again for the beautiful tutorial videos, it is a pleasure to see you create such amazing works of art!! See you soon!!

  55. Merrie Osborn says:

    This card is so pretty! Thanks for showing us the steps to make it. Anna,, please bring back the card size parchment layers. I need more! I really enjoy making them!

  56. Debbie says:

    Monday and Fridays have become my favorite creating days. Thank you for your time, talents, and products.

  57. Evadene says:

    Beautiful! You always give us such new ideas; things I just don’t think of on my own. You make us want to make more and more and more cards. Bless you

  58. Kymm Cummins says:

    Thanks for the video! Can’t wait till Monday for the new Product Preview for the next HSN show
