HSN November 21-22 Sneak Peek 2 Winner

Good Morning!

It’s been a very busy week around the office as we’re getting ready for the second annual Anna Griffin | Create event! Then, we are on to our last HSN shows of the year! We will be on Monday, November 21st at 7am and 6pm and then on Tuesday, November 22nd at 8pm just in time for Christmas crafting!

We have a lot of new items and fan favorites to show you in the next few weeks! Since it is Friday, it’s giveaway day! It looks like everyone’s excited about the versatility of the Christmas Packing Tape and about how easy the Chic Wrap Gift Wrap makes wrapping piles upon piles of presents.  This week, this incredible set of holiday gift wrap, bags, tags and more is going to Elaine Golling.  We know your presents are going to be the prettiest under the tree!

Want a few more peeks at the products?

Meet the new holiday go to! Our Christmas Gift Bags are going to be sold as a bundle of 15, and will be available in three different sizes for all your gift needs. These bags are high quality, made of thick paper and have all the special Anna Griffin touches that you love!


Our partnership with Chic Wrap has allowed us to create the most amazing gift-wrapping set up! Our Chic Wrap storage box comes with a built in paper trimmer, holds your gift-wrap accessories and stores easily and efficiently.  After Christmas, use any 30″ roll of paper inside for perfect cuts and storage all year!


If you’re looking for a fresh take on wrapping this year, we have just the thing for you!  The patterns in our Christmas Packing Tape instantly spruce up any plain box or present that’s being shipped, and liven up a solid/minimal wrapping paper in a flash.  We can’t wait to see how you’re going to use it!


Our Christmas Gift Tags and Labels take a bag or gift from plain to fabulous! Adding a beautiful die-cut or 3D label is all it takes to make this year’s presents outstanding. You’ll get 72 festive, gold foiled accessories to make your gifts sparkle under the tree.


This post has really put us in the holiday spirit! Let us know what you think, and what your favorite part of the holiday season is! Another exciting post is coming your way on Tuesday, along with a new item and another chance to win!




HSN November 21-22 Sneak Peek 2

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Sneak Peek 2 of our HSN shows the week of Thanksgiving. We will be getting you into the holiday spirit on Monday, November 21st at 7am and 6pm and then on Tuesday, November 22nd at 8pm! These will be our last Craft Shows of the year so make sure to tune in!

Today’s post is all about gorgeous gift wrapping. If you have already started shopping for the holidays, we suggest planning a color theme for this year’s trimmings. We have a few tricks up our sleeve when it comes to creating the perfect package, and we’re ready to share!

Brand new for the November shows are our Christmas gift bags! These bags are decked out with our signature three dimensional die cuts on both sides of the bag. For HSN, we are offering an all inclusive set of 15 Christmas gift bags. You’ll get 3 different sizes: a spirit gift bag, a cub size gift bag and a vogue size gift bag in 5 different patterns. They have special finishes like gold foil, glitter, incredible 3D elements, festive ribbon and even a gift tag attached. Keep these handy for the busy holiday season when you need to put together a present in a hurry, but still want it to look coordinated and polished.



Another new item for November is our Christmas Packing Tape! You will get 3 winter-inspired rolls of packing tape in 3 designs and an  interchangeable tape dispenser for perfect cuts.  There’s a jolly holly print, red, green and gold “Merry Christmas” and a red and white Nordic deer and Christmas tree design. Dress up those brown boxes this year! Here is a special video highlighting this tape that will be airing on HSN this holiday season. Enjoy!




Something I can not live without every year are our Christmas Gift Tags and Labels. This boxed set of goodies is gift wrapping accessory heaven! This set includes 72, 3D gift label stickers and 30 gift tags with ribbon. We love the attention to detail on these! Finish your presents in style, and mix and match these with the rest of your Anna Griffin wrapping items!



Last, but certainly not least is our very own Chic Wrap gift wrap dispenser with gorgeous wrap inside! You’re going to get 4 double-sided rolls of beautiful Christmas paper in the world’s best box. The built in paper trimmer has you to cutting straight lines in seconds! The box holds any standard size 30” paper roll and stores easily under the bed or in a closet! It also is an all in one storage container for your scissors, tape, etc.!



We want to give these four amazing holiday packaging items to you! Comment on the blog and tell us your favorite for this season’s gift wrapping! Meet us back here Friday when we reveal the winner!

Happy early holidays,

HSN November 21-22, 2016 Sneak Peek 1

Happy Tuesday!

We’re back for our next round of exciting sneak peeks! We’re going to be on HSN over two days in November (not full Craft Days, but still fun!).  Be sure to mark your calendars for Monday, November 21 at 7am and 6pm and prime time Tuesday, November 22 at 8pm.

These shows will be our last shows of the year and they are appropriately timed for the week of Thanksgiving. In the season of gratitude, we give thanks for you, our loyal fans and customers! We thank you for your patience and understanding during the shipping delays that we are currently experiencing. We thank you for watching, for reading this blog and most of all for being the passionate, creative people that you are!

There is not a video today because we are knee deep in preparations for the second annual Anna Griffin Create. There are 4 items in our first sneak peek: Brand new Envelope Lettering Templates, Christmas Pretty Pattern Cards, Christmas Stamps and Perfectly Printed Vellum Stickers.

Up first is our Envelope Lettering Templates! For those of you who want the outside of your envelope to be as beautiful as the inside, this is the set for you!  You’ll get 1 envelope address template and 1 return address template with decorative stencils.  If you’re like me, sometimes writing in a straight line can be hard. This tool makes it easy peasy, and with these designs, your cards will stand out from the rest! A few things we love in regards to holiday card addressing is the contrast of big and small letters, thick and thin writing and print mixed with script. Add in a decorative flourish and you have a creative envelope like no other. How great is that?





Next, is an essential in your holiday card making, Christmas Pretty Pattern Cards!  In this set of 100, you’re going to get 50 A7 cards and envelopes and 50 A2 cards and envelopes.  With these cards you can make a variety of creations for all the unique, special people in your life! Many of these patterns are inspired by old-world designs. Many have have gold foil and amazing, intricate borders. We have traditional colors, along with the season’s trends like plaid! This set is the little black dress of Christmas card making.  Our goal is to give you the prettiest variety so you can mix and match like a pro.




The holidays are the greatest time to get to stamping! Our Christmas Clear Stamp Set includes 39 individual Christmas designs that you can use on envelopes, gift tags, cards and of course scrapbook pages! Some of the designs you’ll get are: pinecones, holly, snowflakes and sentiments like “Joy and Good Cheer,” Happy Christmas” and “Merry Christmas.” If you need the perfect accompaniment, our set of 6 Christmas Ink Pads will show off these festive designs exquisitely!




For everyday crafting, we’re bringing back our Perfectly Printed Vellum Stickers!  These stunning, kiss-cut stickers adhere to your projects in a way that only vellum can.  You’ll get arrows, feathers, banners, bunting and numbers that shout fun to the rooftops! The numbers included are a lovely way to wish someone special a very happy (insert number) birthday! Talk about customization! You’re going to get 96 of these translucent beauties, which will allow you to collage, layer and combine them to your heart’s content!




We’ll be back on Tuesday with another round of new and fan favorite products for you! But first… do you want to win these lovely items for yourself?  We know you do, and you know we love a good giveaway.  Comment below and tell us which one of the three is the most exciting to you and why?
