I’ve been in Utah this week with our friends at Cricut planning for an entire year of new products. I think you’ll be very pleased with what we have in store…
Today we are giving away the Borders and Corners Stamps and Inks, Nifty Nested Layers and the Playful Pieces Card Making Kit. Congratulations to Martha Casey – you are the big winner!! Yay!
In other exciting news, next week we’re filming another video series with projects made with our new May 11th items! One of the cards you’ll see was inspired by the technique in this scrapbook page. Are you enjoying these videos? We sure hope so!
We hope you’re getting excited about our upcoming visit to HSN on May 11th. It’s going to be so much fun! We’ll be live at midnight, 11 a.m. 3 p.m. and 7 p.m- mark your calendars! There are three new sneak peeks today and three more previews still to come.
First are the Borders and Corners Stamps and ink pads. You might recognize the designs in this collection from our Pretty Paintings Card Making Kit, and now you can build your own custom stamped frames by combining your favorite images! The set includes 39 stamps, 2 clear acrylic mounts with placement guides and 4 ink pads in blue, gold, green and pink.
Next are new Nifty Nested Layers (say that 3 times fast!). Inside this handy dandy kit you’ll find 72 sheets of concentric cardstock that you can punch out into multiple layers for card making and scrapbooking. These gorgeous patterns were inspired by antique lace drawings, and the possibilities they provide are endless!
Our last item for today is one that you’ve been requesting for months. We love making your wish our command! The Playful Pieces Card Making Kit will help you create 20 precious cards layered with lions, tigers and penguins oh my! The sentiments in this kit are really fun too, with sayings like “Hip, hip hooray,” “You are my sunshine” and “Happy birthday honey.” This is the perfect kit to make with the little ones in your life.

We hope you enjoyed Tuesday’s sneak peek of what’s coming up on HSN May 11th. There are still so many great new things to see in the next four previews, not to mention the reveal of our Today’s Special partnership with American Crafts!
Speaking of HSN, I was in Tampa yesterday filming promos for our new craft and bedding collections. I felt like queen for a day! Here are a couple of behind the scenes photos from the shoot.
Now let’s announce this week’s giveway winner! Jodi Kegebein, today is your lucky day! We’ll be sending you the For the Boys Cardstock, Amelie Decorative Scrapbook and a complete set of our Grace Black craft storage.
We’ll see you on Tuesday for more sneak previews. If you’ve been asking for a children themed kit then you are going to love what’s coming up next…
We have another exciting day of DIY coming up on HSN Monday, May 11th, including the Today’s Special that we will tell you all about soon enough. But for now let’s dive right into the first of five Tuesday previews!
The For the Boys Cardstock Collection includes 48 sheets of masculine cardstock with an antique aesthetic, featuring sailboats, vintage shirts, stripes, wood grain textures and fun mustache prints. This rugged color palette of blue, grey, red and brown presents endless project possibilities for the men in your life.
Next is our new Amelie Decorative Scrapbook, where you can build customized pages with photos of your favorite memories! Inside this beautiful floral book you’ll find 88 double-sided cardstock inserts with pretty patterns, titles and journal lines for every occasion that you can insert into divided sleeves (that’s nearly 180 possibilities!). This is so fun and easy to put together.
Lastly, the Grace Black storage system has finally arrived! We’ve taken this signature Anna Griffin pattern and given it a bold black background that will make such a statement in your home, office or craft room. You’ll be able to purchase regular and 12” embossing folder storage boxes, stamp storage binders and nesting card boxes on May 11th.
As always, we are going to give these three items away on Friday! Comment on this post and tell us your favorite for your chance to win.

What a wonderful day of crafts it was on HSN last week. We had countless sell outs and so much fabulous support from all of you. All I can say is wow and thank you!
For those of you who didn’t see the news on Facebook, I had the pleasure of staying in Florida until Thursday evening and attending the magnificent HSN Partner Awards Gala. We were nominated for the Quality Assurance and Customer Experience award for the third year in a row, which is an honor in itself.
We work every single day to bring you the highest quality products and customer service, so of course I was hopeful that the third time would be the charm… and IT WAS! We won!! I cannot tell you how much joy it brought me to stand up in front of some of the world’s most respected names in fashion, beauty and home décor and accept that award on behalf of Anna Griffin Inc. and all of you.
Here are a couple of photos from the gorgeous gala!
April is HSN’s Customer Appreciation Month, and there is no better way to kick that off than that! Speaking of appreciation, we want to make sure that you get the most out of each new product you purchased last week. Please post your questions or requests below! We’ll be loading even more new projects on Pinterest this afternoon, so be sure to visit our page and save your favorite inspiration: https://www.pinterest.com/annagriffininc/.
For those of you who missed the Butterfly Dies autoship program, please know we have passed your comments along to the right people! The Autoship option will be available for sale again on May 11th along with the Gatefold embossing folders, 5.5”x12” Metallic Layers and more.
Lastly, if you didn’t purchase our Foil Card Layers on March 24th there are still some sets up for grabs on hsn.com. These are the prettiest card layers we’ve ever made – I recommend getting more than one! http://bit.ly/foillayers
