Why do you have the Anna Griffin Scrapbook Super Sale?

The Scrapbook Super Sale is an event that we hold each year to say thank you to all of our wonderful fans! It is an exclusive opportunity to get your hands on discontinued Anna Griffin crafting collections at their absolute lowest prices ever. Many of the items are first quality excess inventory, but others are returns from customers like you.  Please note that product configurations may vary from original format. All items are sold as is.

When will this year’s Super Sale take place?

The Super Sale begins Monday, January 30th at 12pm EST, and will run through Tuesday, January 31st at 12pm EST (or while supplies last). The timing ensures that we have ample customer service on hand, and ensures that our West Coast fans are able to shop at a decent hour!

Where is the sale hosted?

If you are not signed up for our email newsletter, visit www.annagriffin.com and enter your email address at the bottom of our home page in the box provided.

What do I need to do to participate?

To participate in the sale, you will need a valid form of payment. The Amazon payment process is optional, but it is the recommended solution for the fastest checkout. You will also be able to pay by credit card directly. If you are not already registered for a free Amazon account, and would like one you can SIGN UP HERE. You can set up your billing address, shipping address and form of payment in advance so checkout is easy peasy on Super Sale day!

Why do you use Amazon?

This is the third year that we have used Amazon to facilitate the sale, and it allows everything to run smoothly. Amazon handles flash sales each and every day, and they have partnered with Shopify to bring us an even better Super Sale experience. Hooray!

What are the shipping charges associated with my purchases?

We are offering free shipping on all orders over $75. All orders under $75 will incur a flat rate shipping charge of $6.95.  Please do not place multiple orders! Customers cannot combine orders after they have been placed to get free shipping after the sale is over.

What service do you use to ship my items?

We will ship all Super Sale orders via FedEx ground or USPS (whichever is the lowest cost for your order) to ensure timely delivery and provide you up-to-date tracking information. We will provide a tracking number to you.

I participated in the sale last year, and items were removed from my cart before I had a chance to purchase. How can I avoid this?

Unfortunately, many of the items featured in the sale are available in very limited quantities. If you place one of these items in your cart and continue shopping, the item may sell out during that time and will consequently be removed from your cart. The Super Sale follows the same rules as the Amazon.com site, where items must be purchased and checkout must be completed before that item is reserved.

Do you ship internationally for the Super Sale?

We do not. Super Sale items may only be purchased by customers in the U.S.

Will I receive a free gift with my purchase?

A free gift is included for orders of $50 or more. Limit one free gift per customer. The free gift cannot be returned or exchanged.

How long will it take to receive my order?

Your order will ship and arrive in 2-3 weeks.  It give us time to organize all the shipments after the sale and deliver most orders before the expected delivery date.

Can I make returns?

Items purchased in the Super Sale cannot be returned or exchanged for any reason. Please note that product configurations may vary from original format.

Happy shopping!

Anna

 

7th Anna-versary Cards

Good morning everyone!

Hopefully you have all recovered from the 24 hour Craft Event this week. Here’s a funny thing about Tuesday’s 7th Anniversary show, I was told that there would not be any Skype calls and that they would be showing clips of our Create II event in Atlanta. It turns out that HSN had other plans! What you saw on Tuesday’s shows was my genuine astonishment over the secret calls and a whole lot of happy emotion! The past 7 years of getting to craft with you through HSN has been nothing short of wonderful, and the beautiful cards and sentiments you sent were the cherry on top of a great show! Thank you for all the love and support during Craft Day! Your participation on Facebook and Instagram meant so much! You make all of what I do possible!

I had to share the incredible projects that I was gifted during the shows. These beauties show exactly how talented this community is!

This card and Post It note holder was made our our elegantly cupcake wrapper crowned Skype queen, Lizzy Coppus. Oh my goodness, so lovely!  Thank you, Lizzy!

Did everyone see Kaye Lystad-Kirk on Skype? Although I could not hear you, I could see your beautiful face! Kaye made me this beautiful card – can you see a theme building here?

Tom Gingras created this beautiful, layered card! It’s so lovely and an inch thick! Congratulations on your own happy news Tom!

Donna Lee Williams created the prettiest pink pop-up card. It is perfect to celebrate 7 years! Amazing job with the Cricut Donna Lee!

Vivian Kochis, I was so excited to see you on Skype! Thank you for this beautiful work of art!

I loved the “instant” delivery mail service on air. Each one of these was such a gift. Talking to you and the rest of the Griffinites made for a fantastic HSN Anniversary. Here’s to many, many more!

Our next shows on HSN are going to be March 8th! Stay tuned for new items, new blog posts, more videos and extra great giveaways!

Love,

Anna

See you at midnight!

Love,

Anna
