Thanks again Anna Griffin for your wonderful stuff.

  49. Diana Durst says:

    Loved the tutorial! Loved that Die cut! Just receives my auto ship yesterday. Can’t wait to play. I need to have that floral Die cut you used! Thanks for all the beauty you share with us!

  50. Deb Siebenaler says:

    Hi, love the ideas you present I do have a few comments in general. I ordered the giftable gift card kit from HSN – the general one- and I did not get the clear bands and the flower embellishments were very few. I was able to use left over flowers for the holders but had to cut my own bands. Cute card holders – any thought being given to offer die cuts for the 4 styles of holders sure could use them Also would you consider offering a supper tape to use with your kits, I had a hard time adhering the small pockets to the larger card and have them stick Your creativity is wonderful – makes me look good 🙂 Keep up the great work. Deb

  51. Pam says:

    Anna, as a newer card-maker I appreciate all the tutorials. They help bring out my creative side. Thanks once again !!

  52. DEBBY says:

    Congratulation Nicole just waiting for July 11 to get here .Love the new dies .and the ink pads .

  53. Lourdes Papac says:

  54. Mrs. Mary Huff says:

    Congrats to Nicole, u will have lots of fun! Anna, I’m also having fun with my new Charlotte paper kit. Thanks for all your inspiration and have a nice weekend!

  55. Jo Smith says:

    Thanks for showing us how to use the beautiful card front die. Lots of ideas already. Looking forward to the show. .

  56. Leslie Ramsey says:

    What a beautiful demo Anna. I see you still use your craft knife. I remember when you used to be on DIY Scrapbooking with Sandy Genoviese and you ALWAYS used your craft knife. Now it is just easier. The new dies are exquisite. Happy Crafting!

  57. Brenda Owen says:

    Wow what a wonderful card. Love the 3D Flower cut and Emboss dies but I also really like the Tutti Frutti stamps and dies with the colorbox inks. Thanks for such great products!

  58. Linda Davis says:

    Congratulations, Nicole – You’re a lucky lady! I so hope you enjoy everything!

    Thanks, Anna, for another lovely tutorial.

  59. Gwen Ogburn says:

    Congratulation Nicole, so happy for you, but sad for me, Happy crafting . Anna, I love these card layers and will buy when they are available. I love how you use the vellum. I am having fun with the Seafarer designer collection paper kit. I already had the shells’ die cuts. I miss the larger pack of shells with the darker blue color. I wished I had gotten 2 of these paper kits. Your paper kits are well worth the money. Of course I use my own designs. I love lighthouses and most will have a lighthouse on them. I am putting some these in my personal collection of cards to send. Some of these I had to use foam dots on.

  60. chris hayden says:

    Congratulations! And Anna, I just love these flower dies and the card front dies. They are so great. It’s like a background that you can build on!

  67. Konni Andis says:

  68. Mary Jane Romero says:

    Love the vibrant colors of the stamp pads. I love the inks that are so Anna. I have never found a brown like the Anna brown. I tend to gravitate towards to those Anna stamp pads without knowing what brand it is. Nice product.

  73. Annette Johnson says:

    Congrats to Nicole…I love the step by step instructions to help me make the beautiful cards featured on this site. I also love the fruit motifs you’ve created AND the easy does it scrapbook. Thanks for all the wonderful products and inspiration.

  74. June Estep says:

    the strawberries are so awesome…..I see a lot of strawberry stamps, but this one is so real looking. Stamping in one color, you can see where the stamp is doing all the work. It is shading and highlighting for you creating that dimensional look that you can spend a lot of time coloring for. love this. wonder what happens if you do stamp in black and color in with the new markers….hmmmm, it is fun to play with our toys.

  75. tinker says:

    your choice of ink & card colors are so pretty. been looking forward to july 11 for months . . . literally!

  76. Ann R says:
