We’re headed to Houston for an exciting few days at the International Quilt Market. But, before I go, I wanted to give you a quick tutorial on the un”bow”lievable Bow Dies that many of you purchased during our recent shows on HSN and QVC UK.
You requested a closer look at each of these dies and all of the amazing possibilities they provide, so we put together a little video for you. Enjoy!
Here are a few projects using the bows in this collection that you might not have seen yet. Those TV presentations fly by so quickly, don’t they?! You can find these and more on our Die Cutting Pinterest boards: http://www.pinterest.com/annagriffininc/
We had so much fun making videos and giving you clues for our big giveaway with Cricut leading up to our October 7th shows on HSN.
In case you missed the big announcement on Facebook, our grand prize winner was Monica Hernandez and our two runner up winners were Irene Alexander and Christa Ceniceros, and all three ladies received their prizes this week! We will have our Google Hangout live on YouTube sometime in November and would love for you to tune in- lots more fun details to come on that.
We asked all three winners what they love about Anna Griffin products and what made them want to enter this giveaway. Here’s what they had to say (we just had to share!):
“I love Anna Griffin’s products because they are amazing! Her card kits are my favorite, they are so easy and fun to put together and the end result is always so beautiful. I’m still in shock that I won, I think it will finally sink in when the prizes start to arrive at my front door. I plan on creating greeting cards, invitations, holiday décor, birthday décor and of course tons of scrapbooking!”
Here is Monica with just part of her big prize!
“I am a huge Anna Griffin fan. I hate to admit this, but I am obsessed with Anna Griffin and her products. I have been a fan since she was on QVC. I can remember her today’s special value on QVC. It was papers and punch-outs with beautiful flowers. Anna has really evolved. The packaging is exceptional. Most of her things come in an organized folder, wrapped in tissue paper, no less. No other crafter does it like Anna. The products are just something else too. She creates things for all levels of crafters. She is able to incorporate her elegant style into the diecuts, embossing folders, paper patterns, etc. I, along with her other customers, appreciate her creativity and her desire to please us. She makes a conscious effort to listen to our suggestions and complaints.
I am just elated to win the Wild Orchid Cricut. I absolutely love the color, and I really wanted to make the paper flowers for the center pieces of my husband retirement party. Now I will be able to. So, my first project will be those beautiful paper flowers and the beautiful bows. I ordered the ombré papers and boxing papers to use with Cricut, plus ten other items. It is so hard to pass up on her things. Thank you again for the opportunity to win this beautiful Cricut. I cannot wait to use it.”
Here’s a photo Irene sent us when her new Wild Orchid Cricut Explore arrived on her doorstep!
“I am so excited, thank you, I can’t believe I won the Wild Orchid Cricut Explore. It’s so pretty I can’t wait to see it in person. I love all of Anna Griffin’s products, especially the card kits, they are amazing every one I’ve made so far has gotten rave reviews. From her Cuttlebug folders and dies, Cricut cartridges, papers and more, everything is so pretty and coordinates so well, when put together it makes everything just a little more special. I can’t wait to make those adorable boxes with bows, and the flowers, wow, my mind is just bursting with ideas for those. I can’t wait to get started making cards for the holidays and other projects with my kids, and I look forward to all the things we will create with the new Cricut Explore.”
Christa has already been busy with her Wild Orchid Explore:
