Giveaway Grand Prize Winner & Craft Day Kickoff

Craft Day on HSN is finally here! I am elated that in just a few short hours I will be showing you all of the new, amazing Anna Griffin collections that you can get your hands on to start your Spring crafting spree! Each piece in these collections was artfully and thoughtfully designed to give you every element you need to make beautiful creations for any memorable occasion. I hope you love them as much as I do!

As the day goes on, I’ll be showing you everything from brand new vellum quotes to stamps to stickers to perfect paper embellishments. The coveted Anna Griffin Cuttlebug and Embossing Folders will also be back on the air in limited supply!

It’s time to announce the Anna Griffin Giveaway grand prize winner!

Since the day I announced this crafting contest, our winner began reaching hundreds, even thousands of people right out of the gate and hasn’t slowed down since. Every time I log onto Facebook or Pinterest I see her sharing her passion for my products, showing others where to find them and how to get inspired and even posting her own beautiful creations for all to see.

So, a huge congratulations to Melissa Hampton for starting the best and farthest reaching Anna Griffin social media crafting frenzy to date! We will send you a giant box of crafting goodies first thing in the morning, chock full of your very own Anna Griffin Cuttlebug and every new item that I’m presenting on HSN today!

I’ve been so moved by your comments, projects and efforts that I would like to recognize Erica, Holly and Dalyce by sending you runner up prizes this week. We love you and don’t want to leave you out! Now, just because National Craft Month is drawing to a close, I hope the sharing and posting on all of our social media sites does not! You have all inspired so many people this month to express themselves through paper crafting and scrapbooking, and I hope you will keep up the good work!

The countdown is on!  See you all on HSN today at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. EST. I can hardly wait!

Much love and thanks,
Anna

    Will the 18th Century Garden Stamps in the beautiful binder be back?  It’s just beautiful and would love to get that and the pen set that goes with it.

    Anna, Love the Cuttlebug and folders!  I chose to get autoship and get all the other fabulous folders too.  I received an email from HSN saying my March shipment will not arrive until July.  Do you have any info on this?  HSN customer service could not help.  Looking forward to future shipments.

    Thanks for any information you can give!

    Hello Miss Anna!
    I am impatiently waiting for UPS to deliver all the goodies I ordered during the craft show! I am at a loss for words about how very grateful I am for the opportunity to acquire such beautiful items! And thank you again for the runner up surprise!  Whew…that was a whirlwind of a show!  I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!  I am going to have to tip the UPS driver!

    Looking forward to April’s show!

    Dear Anna, Greetings from little old England. Thank you for all the hard work that you put in creating such beautiful products. I am sure that you are aware that you have a massive following in the UK, I adore your wonderful papercrafting items. I am new to cardmaking but found your lovely kits on a shopping channel in the UK and susequently bought pretty much all that was available. I am really pleased that your recent trip to London was a success. Again it just shows how high the quality of the products is and how much people appreciate them and you for coming to present them. I missed the show, due to work ( I am a hospital based doctor ), but I stocked up before the show via the website- lucky, because everything sold out.
    Anyway, I have made hundreds of cards, using your kits since November last year, because I have been fundraising for my daughter’s school- Dame Alice Owens. The school celebrates its 400th anniversary this year and the pupils have been raising money for a new science building. Fundraising has been based on the parable of the talents, each pupil was loaned £10 to get started. My daughter made cards and cupcakes and her tiny business thrived. We raised £190 pounds and people loved the cards. Thank you for super kits they do the work, as do you. Sorry it’s such a long message, but I thought that you and some of the fellow world community of crafters might like to know what other crafters get up to. Thanks again.

    Congratulations to the winners! Anna, I am so excited that I got to watch your shows 1st hand! As a teacher, my days off are numbered and these shows are usually during the week. Well this year it was my Spring Break! I slept 3 hours total!! My HSN card is about to stroke. I got the Cuttlebug this time (it was sold out by the time I got home from school last time.) Are you going to have more folders in April? I love your products and can’t wait to use the folders. I just finished my Christmas 2012 in one of your auto-ship albums!

    Dear Anna, I’ve been a fan of yours since the other shopping network.  I love your products.  I’m a big fan of vintage things.  Are you going to be offering your embossing folders on HSN?  I’m retired so I can’t get your Cuttlebug but would love to be able to purchase the folder for my Cuttlebug.  Yours is prettier than my little green bug but love it any way.  Did I hear you say you’d be back on HSN in April.  Must make a note of that so I don’t miss you.  Happy Easter.

    Anna, Did I hear you Correctly that you will be back
    On HSN in April? If so I need to put it on my Calendar.
    Thanks You and your Team For All your Hard Work

    I enjoyed seeing you on two of your presentations (had to miss one because of a Dr. appt. ) .  I had ordered the Cuttlebug with folders in January and love, love, love the machine and folders.  You are so talented and I love the uniquess of your work.  Do you have a place we can view some of the projects you have shown and created?

    I was able to order the cuttlebug early today & am so excited!  Tried to buy the embossing folder storage box also but it wasn’t available.  Will it be later?  Also bought the 12″ borders & would like to know where I can learn the measurements for pleating them or making banners.  Hope that info is available somewhere.  Love your products & projects!

    THANK YOU!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!  ANNA,

    I am so excited!!! I appreciate you considering me as a runner up. Just to think you know who I am, and my story, is an honor.
    My kids and friends have been texting me all morning.  They are all so happy.  I could not have done it without them.  Family and friends mean so much and your products have brought me closer to them in a way I never imagined.  I can never thank you enough for blessing my life in the way you have.  I will never stop telling people about Anna Griffin and her wonderful line of products.

    Congradulations to Melissa!!!  I am very excited for you.  And thank you Melissa for the links, for lots of more ideas.

    My 8yr. old daughter, Kaye, wants to tell you thank you also.
    I tried to get to live chat on HSN this morning to thank you, but never got through.  My daughter is just as excited to thank you as I am.  I will try again this afternoon.
    Thank you again Anna, for you generosity and kindness.
    Hope you have a successful day today.

    Dear Anna: I am watching you. I bought the cuttlebug today but I am disappointed  that you have not offered the autoship for getting the other folders. Would you please offer the folders for those who did not watch in January? I have been your follower for 13 years. Many thanks for all your beautiful products. I just love them. I have been crafting with your products for 2 weeks in a row now.

    I shared on FB. I love all Anna’s items. My most Fav is the first line of papers she came out with. I have about 25 to 30 pages left. I will only use them for something special, because I can’t find them any more:-). I’m also loving the new cuddle bug machine. I tried to buy another one for my friend but they were all sold out. I hope I’m blessed to win so I can give it to her. If not I’m still blessed to be able to have a some of Anna’s items. My second set of embossing folder have been shipped out, can’t wait to get them on Tuesday.  I can’t wait for the HSN Craft day!  Looking forward to seeing you on there Anna.

    I’m so ready for the big day tomorrow!! So what have I done to spread the word of Anna Griffin and her amazing products? Well I have uploaded around 400 Anna Griffin projects to Instagram, Facebook, Pintrest, Twitter, and 2 peas in a bucket! So many photos that I actually locked up my Facebook account! 🙂 But it was SO worth it. I know have 50 new followers on my Pintrest Anna Griffin board and 40 of my close family/friends are now following Anna on pintrest. I have 15 family/friends that now like Anna Griffin on Facebook. I have created a forum on 2 peas where have been discussing her upcoming visit and what are favorite collections, products, and more. From that I know for certain there will be 5 new people watching your programming on HSN tomorrow!!  I also have also been hired to create a wedding scrapbook based on my posted projects. The bride requested I use the same vintage look in there wedding album. So of course it will be Anna products all the way!!  I’m new to twitter but have 3 new followers. I just have to say how much Anna products mean to me. I have Ulcerative Colitis and have for 17 years now. Scrapbooking and card making is my outlet. Even on my worst days I can sit down with a Anna Griffin card kit and create wonderful projects that I can proud of.  Depending on how I feel I can make them as elaborate or as simple as I choice! I started scrapbooking the year I was diagnosised at 9 to get through the side effects of my treatments and have been doing it ever since. Now that I have been told I can’t continue working I know with my creativity and Anna’s products I can work from home creating wonderful products. Anna, you honestly have no idea what your products mean to me. Your not just making products you are creating SO much more. You have been able to give me purpose, hope, and some cheering up when I need it the most. I hope you read these comments because you have no idea how much I appreicate you and your staff! Thank you so much for all you do! My health hasn’t been the greatest lately and just something as simple as you coming to HSN has giving me something to look forward to. Then when I found out I won last week I was overcome with emotions. I have been ill the last few days and I have literally set in bed and look at each and every product in the box multiply times!! I can’t wait tell I feel like using them. Since I’m unable to work money is tight but my birthday was this month I have been saving it all for your shows!  I hope you see this Anna I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you do!! God Bless you and your wonderful team!!

    I know everyone is working very hard for this giveaway and is looking forward to Monday as much as I am. I just wanted to invite people to continue sharing your ideas after the promotion is over. Oh course I was thrilled and honored to be chosen as one of the giveaway winners but I have enjoyed seeing everyone projects just as much! I don’t know about you but I get so much inspiration by seeing others creations. So please add on Facebook, follow me on pintrest, twitter, Instagram or whatever social network you use but I would love to keep this buzz going!! Let’s keep inspiring each other espically once we get all of new goodies from Monday’s shows
  29. Posted by: Ronny
    Can hardly wait for Monday!  I have so much Anna Griffin stuff! But of course its never enough as all you AG lovers know.
    I bought myself silly last time you were on.  Hope I have some money left for this next round as like last time I will want it ALL!          Everyone who knows me in my crafting world knows most all my cardmaking is done with Anna products. They are so beautiful.  Especially love those pretty bright flower stickers.          I have posted on facebook and have a pinterest board of  Anna cards etc.    Have sent out many cards made with the kits and people think I am so brilliant to make such beautiful cards 🙂   How Annalicious it would be to win all the products that will be on her show.  I would probably faint cause I am usually not in the winner category, it tends to evade me.     But there is always hope and no matter what I will always love Annas products.

    Still working hard to spread the word about your upcoming visit! I just have to the products I received are GREAT! I’ve added more projects on pintrest, twitter, 2 peas, and Facebook.

    HI everyone! HUGE FAN!!!!! I have been paper crafting for a really LONG time, I started right after I moved to Arizona, from New York-I started my family tree; found that I had too many PHOTOS/documents and needed a place for them, and I didn’t want to just throw them in a cheap album, so I started SCRAPBOOKING! I have well over 4,100+ people on my family tree, so you can imagine the amount of information I have to place with each individual, for sure! I wish I could post every little thing I have, but you would be bored, don’t want to do that, so, instead, I’m spreading the love of Anna Griffin, Inc., cause I LOVE everything I have purchased and created!

    Hi Anna,
    Reporting back on the progress of spreading your name and products.  Because of the help from my Married Children and Friends, as of yesterday we had over 40 people, that I know of, posting for me on facebook and twitter.  My kids think it’s many more.  They have numbers of friends posting for me also.  So many have said they would help.  It is impossible to know just how many people we are reaching, but my kids say they think it must be several thousands with everyone helping to post.  Even one of my Son-in-Laws was getting his friends to post.  Cute Ah!   We also know that several hundred are going to Pinterest to see your products.
    This has been a fun contest and my friends and family have reported back to me that their friends, love your products also and can see why I love them.
    We are going to continue through Sunday to get the Anna Griffin word out and we have also been encouraging everyone to watch you at HSN on Monday.
    I am so greatful to everyone who has helped me try to win the Grand Prize.  I am amazed and deeply touched at so many many people I don’t even know doing this for me because my friends and family asked them to.  Those close to me know how I love and like to share your products.
    Also, as of this morning I have 286 followers on my Anna Griffin pinterest.   My Pinterest account is Gail Gale.
    I look forward to seeing you at HSN on Monday.
    Thanks again Anna for bringing all your wonderful ideas and products into so many lives.

    Just like Peanut Butter and Jelly, Anna Griffin and her new Cuttlebug go together!! Everyone is always searching for the golden ring or the golden egg, but me, I am searching for the golden cuttlebug!!! This is a great opportunity and what wonderful ideas and projects we have to lean on for ideas.  Thank you

    I’m an Anna griffin fan from down under! And it’s not that easy but I enjoy the challenge of sourcing some of the most beautiful card crafting items in the world. I’ve been a fan since I bought my first wood mounted set of stamps as a teenager, and now as a new mum I love having a little timeout to craft. I’m lucky to have family in the uk who send me orders from HSN but I am a little limited with what I am able to get. I religiously watch clips on QVC and HSN and thank goodness for online tv- I’m known to get up at 2am to watch. I have liked on fb and have a Pinterest page dedicated to Anna. All I ask is that you bring more of your amazing kits to us in little old Australia- we need you!

    Love the color combinations.  As a 22nd Anniversary gift last year I received my wedding photos that people had taken that the photographer missed.  I’ve been looking for the perfect scrapbook designs to create my album.  I would be honored if I was picked.

    The happy crafter,
    Lisa 🙂

    I am a card crafter who has been using your beautiful products for years. I am always thrilled by the new product categories you keep adding to take your offerings to the next level. I cannot tell you the number of times I have given a card made with your amazing selection of designs and heard “this is the most beautiful card I have ever received” or “I  am going to frame this” or “Can you make me more cards like this to send” or “you are an amazing card artist.”. But, really, it is your coordinated lines that make it effortless. Thank you so much and I can’t wait until March 25 to see more gorgeous samples and buy a bunch more fabulous AG stuff! Thank you so much!

    Good Evening Miss Anna & Fellow Crafters!

    It looks like everyone is as excited as I am for the show on the 25th (no doubt) and also very enthusiastic about the FAB Anna Griffin Giveaway too! I love everyone’s comments.  When I view the creations of others, in addition to those presented  by Anna & Co, I feel inspiration coming on!  Thanks everyone!
    This weekend I am planning a “Crafting with Anna” party for my family! They have all been recipients of cards and projects using Anna’s exquisite line! This should be so much fun!
    I love what Tonia spoke of in her comment about sending her wonderful cards out to many who are in need of a “pick me up”!
    Great job Tonia! I find that to be the case as well and helping  someone smile or forget their troubles for a little while … what a powerful thing!  Anna creates the beautiful kits, papers and embellishments that help us accomplish this with ease and with an elegant style, and no stress!  Plus you get the therapeutic benefits of creating! It’s a win, win!
    I like to give some of the Anna cards I have created to the care givers I know who give so much of themselves, so often.  The sentiment inserts, stickers and stamps  are so helpful when you aren’t quite sure what to say, I am so grateful for these!  In addition to the cards,  I have found that for some scrapbook pages, these sentiment stickers and stamps convey just the right message for the photos you want to showcase.

    Happy St Patrick’s Day!

    I have been working very hard this week to spread the news about Anna and her wonderful products.  I have uploaded photos of all my cards I’ve made with Anna’s products.  I have all 221 photos on Instagram (kiestler87) and know I’m in the process of putting them on Facebook, pintrest (disney87) and Two Peas in a Bucket (kiestler87).  I love Anna’s products and have for years.  I started scrapbooking when I was 9 years old after I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis.  My Mom would order me items when you were on QVC.  I use these homemade cards so frequently.  I have often put in the hopsital and use the thank you cards for my church and loved ones who have prayed for me and sent me items.  It gives me such great joy to give them a card as a thank you that I personally made.  Often times the people that receive this cards keep them out on display at all times.  My grandparents have 7 displayed in there home now.  I would LOVE to receive this prize!!! Added this wonderful products to my growin number of Anna products would be such a blessing.  This past year alone I have used your products to make 2 sets of wedding shower invitations, 1 wedding reception, and 1 1st birthday party.  I have recently been told that I will not be able to continue to work because of my condition.  Your products allow me to create wonderful products people want to purchase and for me to give.  Using your products allow me to create wonderful products and give me a sense of importance.  I would also like to say how much I have enjoyed this contest.  It has connected me with other crafters and their wonderful creations.  I know have new facebook friends, people to follow on pinterest/instagram, and new blogs to explore. I hope get new followers and friends as well. Anna, I can’t WAIT till your shows on the 25!!  I will be there with phone in one hand and credit card in the other! Please Please Please consider me for this week prize!!!!

    Hello Anna and Fans,
    I have been such a fan of Anna, and have been following her for years.  I also do not use Facebook, like Michelle, however, I agree with her that the response from the receivers is wonderful.  I purchased the AG cuttlebug from HSN and have had so much fun with this product.  (I gave my other machine to my friend), so I received twice the joy!!! The products from AG line are so great, and I enjoy getting my packages from HSN, like a kid at Christmas. Thank you Anna for all the great products, and may you have a great year!!!  Looking forward to many more crafting days and sharing joy to others because of your creations.

    Hi Anna

    I adore your products.  Your lines and collections are always exquisite and are just a level of class above everything else on the market.  I have most of your stamp sets and what a birthday present to find out about your embossing folders, which I’ve just purchased on QVC as well as another set of stamps to add to my collection.

    Well done on your new releases and look forward to many more (although not sure how you can top your newest stuff).

    Hi Anna!!!  I just wanted to let you know that I love your products!!!  Being able to make cards and scrapbook brings me such joy in this sometimes hectic world.  Crafting is my passion, and I record all of your HSN appearances.  I watch them when I am rocking my son to sleep and when I go to sleep at night.  I never get tired of seeing all of the things that you and your company have created.  I am a bit old school, so I don’t have Facebook or Pinterest, but please believe that every time I give someone a card or a scrapbook that I made from one of your collections I tell them exactly why it came out so beautifully – because Anna Griffin designed it!!  I always let them know to go on HSN.com to check for your products.  I tell all of my crafting friends just when to tune in to HSN so that they can see the latest and greatest from your collection.  I am begging that you please consider me for the weekly prize.  I have been dreaming of your 18th century garden stamp set.  I totally went crazy from your January appearance on HSN and ordered way to much stuff (the golden cuttlebug, the metallic layers, the card inserts, the floral impressions card kit, the graduation kit).  Add that to my growing Anna Griffin collection and I could open a store.  Oh Anna, I got it bad!!!  I may not be able to spread the word via the internet, but please believe that I spread the word to all of the recipients of your cards and scrapbooks that I create and to all of my crafty friends!!!  I LOVE ANNA GRIFFIN!!  COUNTDOWN TO MARCH 25TH!!!!!!

March 4th Winner of the Anna Griffin Giveaway

We are so excited to announce the winner of the March Craft Madness Anna Griffin Giveaway for March 4th. But first, I promised you a sneak product preview…

Say hello to our Eleanor papercrafting collection, which will make its debut on March 25th. Eleanor is a decidedly feminine collection inspired by the elaborate millinery and antique perfume bottles of the 1920’s.  With vintage hatbox stripes and lush rose bouquets, this collection has many contrasts between flowing florals and concentrated geometrics.  This collection is a step back in time when Hattie Carnegie was introducing ready-to-wear fashion, the era in which Eloise lived in the Plaza, when women wore hats as statement pieces and every wall was covered in decadent wallpaper.

This collection is comprised of coordinating decorative papers, embellishments, titles, 3D stickers and detailed embellishment shapes in a variety of colors and styles. Eleanor’s feminine feel is perfect for gorgeous greetings or springtime soirées.

Now, on to the giveaway!

Our first winner did exactly what we asked for!  She followed all of our social media networks, shared her love for Anna Griffin products on Facebook and Pinterest.  So, a big congrats to Holly Golding, who is the lucky recipient of our brand new Nearest and Dearest 3D Sentiment Stickers (which are not available until the 25th!) and our Floral Impressions Card Making Kit (which is completely sold out and is no longer available!) Congratulations Holly!

However, the giveaways are far from over, so if you didn’t win this week don’t fret!  This time around, we are giving you the entire week to show us what you’ve got to win an even bigger prize! So keep posting!

annagriffingiveaway

    I have already purchased this set and absolutely love it.  I took it to a recent crop and one of the gals there fell absolutely in LOVE with it.  She spent the entire crop running paper piece upon paper piece through this machine and went home with a whole mound of embossed papers to use in her crafting.  She’s not great at social networking so if I would win this it would be given to her.  I have shared your link on facebook and take your machine and folders to many events.  Thank you for the chance to win!

    Okay — shared and commented on Facebook (over 60) to my scrapbooking weekend warriors! Commenting on the blog — I just need to post a picture of a project.  I just made a gorgeous card this weekend for a family friend using AG stamps and one embossing folder.  Will post now! Thank you!  Oh … just wondering … if one of weekend warrior scrappers ends up winning due to my sharing of the post, do you think they will share the prize??

    I’ve shared on my FB and have reached almost 200 people, I’m a follower of your on Pinterest but do not have a Twitter account.  I do, however, have a following of almost 3000 on Pinterest so that should help spread the word.  I used your Christmas Card Kit to make my Christmas Cards last December and they were a huge hit.  I can’t wait to see what you have for Christmas this year.
    I love the gold cuttlebug and folders and I want very badly to win!

    I shared the 3/11/13 Giveaway on my fb timeline… So even people who have no idea who Anna Griffin is will get to scroll down and at least see her name and the Cuttlebug… Fortunately I do have one friend who is an avid paper crafter 🙂

    I hope that as a senior citizen, I can reach all the “oldies but goodies” out there who still love to keep busy with crafting. There are so many places that we can no longer go because of physical reasons but with Anna Griffin, one is limitless and we can fly anywhere.

    I have like’d and share’d the post with all my Facebook friends and am off to tweet and go to Pinterest from here! 🙂  I don’t know how people will see it, but those will do will LOVE Anna’s products as much as I do, I’m sure!   Good luck everyone!

    I shared you on my facebook timeline; unlike many of the others who have left comments, I promote you when I go shopping to Michaels, Hobby Lobby, ACMoore, Joanns (where a while ago I taught scrapbooking)…since word of mouth stimulates other crafters to purchase your items..I tell them that they can get them on HSN….Go Anna

    Nine hours to go and I could barely sleep last night…anyone hat knows me knows how much I appreciate Anna Griffin products. I took the scrapbook classes when they first started, I bought almost every product as it was released….but this, well, an autographed Cuttlebug in THOSE colors? It’s like a dream and I don’t want to wake up. Oh please just make this day go faster….

I also pin the projects I have made to my Pinterest boards (like this one herehttp://pinterest.com/pin/282882420316614887/) that board alone has 862 followers. I re-pin from Anna Griffin’s pinterest page to many of my different boards so as many of my follower as possible can see Anna’s beautiful products and crafts (over 2,700 followers athttp://pinterest.com/sdoparis/ ).
    I also have a crafting blog, where I made a post about the beautiful new Eleanor collection at http://sweetdreamsofparis.blogspot.com

    I am back again with this update. You can go to my facebook page and see Anna Griffin Inc. and read about the website and see projects I posted on Anna Griffin scraobooking and Anna Griffin, Inc. I also have pinned Anna Griffin Inc. on Pinterest and have a following as I do on facebook. I went to my Twitter account and also promoted Anna Griffin, Inc. I don’t have an iphone, ipad, etc. from which to send an instagram, but I will tell my friends so they can promote Anna Griffin, Inc. on theirs. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you Anna Griffin! You have combined style and personality in all that you do. I am your BIGGEST fan!

    So I went to Tweet last night but got stuck looking at all of the art on Pinterest. Why does Anna have so few followers? I know she has tons of fans! Come on guys, repin/like her boards! It’s ridiculous!

    To say I’m a fan is almost an  understatement! You designed scrapbook paper and embellies for the way I have lived, decorated and dressed for the last three decades! I love everything roses (my house shows that…once I even  had a pink house that people referred to as the Rose Cottage”). Thanks for all you do to make papercrafting beautiful!

    Hello Miss Anna & Co!
    I have created my first “event” using Facebook! Inviting everyone to view Anna Griffin, March 25 on HSN! Getting the word out about these fabulous collections via FB and Pinterest. Everyone within earshot of me has heard about Anna Griffin being viewed and available on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Annagriffin.com! I must admit this is not a difficult task considering the subject! I am using my Anna Griffin card and scrapbooking kits, inspiring others to do the same and having fun in the process! Thanks for all the divine product lines and collections, keep ’em coming!

    Love, love, love ANNA GRIFFIN! Your card kits are my absolute favorite and you are one of the first people I look for on HSN when they have Scrapbook and Craft days! I look forward to them for a long time and always hope I have enough money to buy my favorite things! Not only do I send these cards to my favorite friends, but I also make them and give sets as gifts. People are always amazed at how beautiful these cards are. I always look forward to the newest things and since I missed out on the new embossing folders in January–I am hoping they will be back this month! Keep up the good work. Good job on making kits that include man friendly cards and having sideline embellishment kits that coordinate (sentiment stickers, fan and ruffle kits, vellum quotes and greetings, self-inking stamp sets–would love more on those–and how about refill kits for tags that fit with the self-inking stamper stamps?). Keep the fabulous products coming! Hope I will be able to win something this month!

    Love love love love all my Anna goodies!!!! Moved tons of boxes of all my AG products a couple of months ago. Just did a scrapbook store hop this past weekend all over Florida and not one store had any AG product – was sooooo sad but knew she will be coming to HSN shortly!  Was telling everyone on our van about the binder of all the awesome stamps

    Anna – what can I say except that you are gifted with the talent of design and papercrafting.  You have changed my “look” in all of my scrapbooking and card making that it makes me proud!  It’s always a “must-have it” if the “it” is by Anna Griffin!  Thank you!!
  19. Posted by: Christina Ramon
    I just recently discovered AG products and I love them! I have a Facebook fan page where I display my creations, from digital scrapbooking to cardmaking and everything in between. I create pins from my FB posts and pin them to my Pinterest account so I get more exposure and a bigger following! I definitely tag AG on both FB and Pinterest. 🙂 Last, I just started doing guest blog posts on craft tutorials! I am guesting at a couple of different blogs to show full tutorials on simple papercrafting and crafts. 🙂

    Good Morning Anna,  I just got into card making about 6 months ago. I just became aware of your products at Christmas time. I am thrilled to see all the beautiful products you have created! Thank you for helping me develop more creativity. God bless you!

    I can’t wait until the 25th to see what new “must-have goodies” you have in store for us!  You  never disappoint.  I love to use your card kits to make all my cards.  My family and friends love love love the cards they receive.  I even made a gift bag with your embossed designs for my niece’s birthday gift – it was the hit of the party.  My response to all the compliments is always the same “Anna Griffin”.  Hurry up March 25th!

    Hi Anna, I’ve been sharing the love of your designs with many, many people in person at scrapbook events over the years.  I will accept your invitation now to share on social media as well.  This week I posted on Facebook – next week I will try to get the hang of Instagram!  🙂

    Hello Miss Anna!
    What a Great SuPrisE  when I came to your blog to see  how busy you have been… then I saw the news! How exciting! I am going to do my best to spread the word about how divine Anna Griffin Inc products are! I receive most of the Anna products from HSN, however I frequently scour the internet for your inspiring designs. I just love how the products are all so well made and thought out for all of us! Scrapbook.com and createforless.com have some Anna Griffin products that are difficult to find in stores, sold out or even discontinued! The designs never go out of style and are all so lovely.They also work well with the new things and are easily incorporated.  New meets old, just like Anna products!
    Can’t wait to see the new releases on the Anna Griffin Blog! So excited about CrAft MoNTh! I never really was into paper crafting as much until I foundAnna Griffin Inc products…now I can’t get enough!
    ~Good Luck Everyone~

    Hey Anna, I love working with your products. I have all your HSN autoship scrapbooks! I just finished Christmas 2012 using your premade pages. I needed more pages, so I just went to my Anna stash and created more! It turned out beautifully. I teach middle school and sponsor a scrapbook club. I carry my scrapbooks to show them different ways to set up pages. They love looking at them. Since I teach a connection class, I get new students every 9 weeks. Rather than just tell them about myself, I take in a collection of my scrapbooks and as I talk about my grandchildren I pass their scrapbooks around. Your products have been such an inspiration! Generations of my family will get to know me through my captured memories. Also, I hope to influence some of my students to record their memories. I’m already seeing evidence of that! My scrapbook club would be so excited to see your Golden Bug and the embossing folders. I hope I win!

    I have always loved the scrap booking materials, but when Anna offered card kits on HSN, I ordered a couple of sets for myself, and one for my mother, and my Mom was hooked.  She loves the cards and all the compliments she gets when she sends them.  She only sends them to ‘special people’.  We have craft day at my house about 10 times per year, and everyone that attends gets exposed to Anna because she is the best!!!  Any time you use any of Anna’s products the projects turn out better!

    I love all of your products. I just sent off a dozen Birthday cards to my mother-in-law to send to her relatives and friends(she’s always saying how talented I am , if only she knew it’s all thanks to you, Anna). We have an Anna Griffin girls evening every month to get together and exchange ideas and products.  Thanks for all the elegant products you creat.

    Hi Anna,
    I have been using your products since you began the scrapbooking classes in the early 2000’s. I made a scrapbook for my wedding and displayed it during the reception and received so many compliments on it. Every album that I make for all my friends and family uses your paper and embellies. I get so many compliments on the cards I send using your card kits and all of them say they keep the cards in a special place afterwards because they don’t want to throw them away. I would love to win this and create more beautiful things for my family and friends. Thank you!

    I love your card kits.  I went to a craft weekend and made a lot of cards out of the floral card kit and I got so many compliments on how beautiful the cards were.  I told everyone to watch your show on HSN on March 25th.

    I have been stamping & making cards for 35 years & scrapbooking for over 10 years.  Love all the beautiful papers & ribbons from Anna & have recently discovered her card kits.  I mailed 3 birthday cards this past week that I made from the Floral Impressions kit.  Have a get well & anniversary ready to go for later this month.  Can’t wait to get the Cuttlebug as I missed it last time.  Wondering if I can use die cuts with it as well as emboss?  Thanks, Anna, for sharing your amazing talent with all of us!

    I have been making Anna Griffin cards for two years now and all of my family adore them as much as I do.  My Mom and her sisters love the cards I make for them so much they wanted me to host an Anna Griffin card making class.  It took some time for me to find & order just the right ‘all occasion’ card kit for each of them, but it was so much fun!!! We had a card-making tea party, Anna Griffin style.
    Thanks so much Anna!

    My favorite scrapbooking materials are Anna Griffin products. I love the vintage and themed products. I share my creations with my friends in the form of scrapbooks, cards, and home decor. My husband is my greatest fan and never has a problem with me buying Anna Griffin products. He even watches Anna with me when she is on HSN.
  39. Posted by: K2
    I love all my Anna Griffin products. I’ve been working on completing the card kits at crops the past several weeks. Everyone in the store comes over to see them and asks where I purchased the kit! I tell them HSNhey are amazed at the beauty and quality of the cards I’ve completed. My husband is even impressed and said you couldn’t find anything like this in the card shops.

    Oh my gosh…where to begin to express how long I have been purchasing and collecting your beautiful collections of scrapbook papers, embellishments and your guide books. My craft room is filled with Anna Griffin florals in many scrapbooks, on a bulletin board, as a covering for my craft cabinet and my utensil holders.  It’s springtime in my craft room each day because of Anna Griffin’s gorgeous products.  I discovered you on the Scrapbooking with Sandy Genovese tv show on the DIY network in the early 2000’s and I continue to love and search for your products all these years later.
