Hi everyone!

Our biggest shows ever on HSN are only 5 days away! The Christmas Pop Up Card Making Kit Today’s Special, world launch of the Cricut Explore Gold Edition and debut of more than 15 other new Anna Griffin products is sure to make this the most fun Craft Day yet.

We have a giveaway right out of the gate this morning, too! Congratulations to Mary Cannon- you are the winner of our Christmas Washi Tape, Gracious Giftables and Say It Any Way Stamp Kit! Enjoy!

Now onto the last four product previews…

October 7th seems to be all about gold, and you’ll be able to gild your craft room even more with a new set of 4 Anna Griffin Gold Tape Runners! These are an amazing value and are going to come in super handy as a companion to your Christmas card kits. Each tape runner contains 50 feet of double-sided permanent adhesive.


For those of you who loved our Flower Pot Decoupage Die Cuts, you’ll be thrilled to learn that there is a sequel that’s appropriately named More Flower Pot Decoupage!  This set includes all of your favorite fall florals such as mums, auriculas, sunflowers, pansies, morning glories and more. We also included coordinating pots and tags for building beautiful arrangements.

Our next product was born from the idea that receiving handmade holiday cards should be beautiful from start to finish. Our new Charming Christmas Envelope Stamps are something you will use for years to come! This set includes 22 clear stamps with gorgeous corner details for your recipient’s address, and gorgeous seals for the perfect finishing touch.

Last is a new embossing and die cutting set for your Cuttlebug called Festive Words. You’ll be able to die cut 9 different holiday words in some of our favorite fonts and then emboss them with two embossing folders that contain 6 different designs. You can also use the words and embossed patterns separately-these are so much fun!

Speaking of festive paper crafting, have you been working on your holiday card mailing list? This is the best time of year to make that list and check it twice! Our video today will give you one last look at the Christmas Pop Up Card Making Kit- this time we are revealing all of the details about autoship! If you are new to autoship, this basically means that on October 7th when you purchase your Christmas card kit you can opt for autoship and receive exclusive Anna Griffin pop up card kits all year long. It’s like Christmas day over and over again!

HSN October 7th Sneak Peek 6 and Christmas Pop Up Card Kit Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the 6th preview of all the brand new items headed to HSN on October 7th. We love starting and ending every blog post with a giveaway, don’t you? Today we drew a name at random from all of Friday’s blog comments, and they will win Anna’s Holiday Home Décor cartridge and Anna’s Fancy Fonts cartridge. Congratulations Suzanne van Duynhoven!

First up today are 12 rolls of metallic Christmas Washi Tape! These feature jingle bells, stripes and snowflakes in silver and gold, as well as gorgeous border designs in traditional Christmas red and green. If you’ve used washi tape before you know that it is versatile for so many different things around the holidays, from cards to gift wrapping!

Next is a new kind of product from us that you are going to love- our Gracious Giftables decorative gift card holders! Everyone loves to receive gift cards during the holiday season, and now you can make the experience of opening them absolutely gorgeous. This set includes 24 holders shaped like coin purses, handbags, wallets and gift boxes, as well as die cut embellishments, paper bows, satin ribbon and acetate strips to decorate. These are just fantastic!

Our next brand new product is called the Say It Any Way Stamp Kit. It includes 32 clear stamps that will provide the perfect heartfelt words for any occasion, from birthday to sympathy. There are 11 non-directional sentiments, 10 regularly centered sentiments, and 11 icons that can be used in the center of the circular sentiments or as envelope seals. A couple of our favorites are “Sending a little sunshine to sprinkle in your day, reminding you that you’re thought of in a very special way!” and “A hundred hearts would be too few, to carry all the love I have for you.” Love these!

Now for another look at this year’s Christmas Pop Up Card Making Kit. There are so many embellishments in this kit that you could choose to decorate the front of your card and add a sentiment sticker to the inside. We even created a set of over 1,000 extra die cuts to match the kit and coordinate your cards, gift wrap, tags and more (watch the video for a peek at these)! If you want to make all 50 of your cards pop up that is perfect, but we wanted to show you just how versatile this kit can be!


If you’d like to win the Christmas Washi Tape, Gracious Giftables and Say It Any Way Stamp Kit, comment here on the blog! We will draw a winner at random for those three items on Friday.

Okay, we told you we had big news today and now it’s time to let the cat out of the bag! If you’ve been paying close attention, you’ve noticed that we haven’t given away any of the Christmas Pop Up Card Kits yet. That’s because we’ve been saving them for our biggest and best giveaway ever!

That’s a total of 49 winners before October 7th!  But that’s not all…there’s also a very special twist.  One of the 49 card kit boxes contains a golden ticket, and that golden ticket is a trip to the Anna Griffin | Create event this November!!

We will draw a winner every day at 7 p.m. EST starting TONIGHT, and will post the names on our Facebook page every day at that time from here on out. On October 5th, all 49 kits will ship to the lucky winners just in time for our October 7th shows on HSN, and one of those 49 is coming to see us in Atlanta November 13th-15th!

Hi there!

We are continuing our celebration of the reveal of the new Gold Edition Cricut Explore Air with two exciting giveaways today- are you ready?! First we are sending a set of Anna Griffin gold glitter paper to one lucky lady who commented on the blog- Congrat Bette Sines!

Now for the big one! The grand prize winner of our Facebook contest will be one of the very first owners of the Gold Edition Explore, all of our new content and a consumables package with glitter paper, vinyl, iron on and window cling in silver and gold. We think a drumroll is in order for…

The best thing about this machine, besides its perfect gold coloring, are the 175 Anna Griffin cutting and print files that you will have access to when you get it home. Don’t worry current Cricut owners, we didn’t forget about you! These image sets will be available separately on October 7th as well.

Are you ready to see all the new content? Let’s get started!

First is Anna’s Holiday Home Décor, which includes seven seasonal themes- this cartridge pushes the Explore to its full fabulous potential.

You can throw a party, wrap your gifts and decorate your entire home with this one image set!
