Cricut Cartridge Sneak Peek and Giveaways Galore

Hi everyone!

I am packing today for HSN and I know it’s going to be the most fun 24-Hour Craft Day yet, and it’s all because of the amazing Anna Griffin crafting family. You guys are just the best!

Today’s giveaway is a doozie! Not only are we giving away the Christmas Perfect Palette and the Holly and Snowflake Dies, but the winner (and now party host) will also take home THREE Holiday Trimmings Card Kits. Congratulations Tom G, it’s your lucky day!

Don’t forget that the biggest giveaway of all will take place on Monday.  I can’t wait to see who will take home every single new item in the show! If you have not entered yet and would like a chance to win, click here

Okay, we’ve got one last sneak preview for you!  You’ve been waiting on this product for years, and now we’ve kept you waiting to see it too! It’s the new Winter Wonderland Cricut Cartridge, and oh my goodness it is fantastic…

The cartridge features 50 gorgeous images, including ornaments, snowflakes, bells, holly, reindeer, poinsettias and more.  Each design can be cut anywhere from 1 to 12 inches, and some even up to 23.5 inches with a 12×24 cutting mat! And not to worry, the Winter Wonderland cartridge works on all of the Cricut cutting machines.  What makes the images so exceptional is the amount of detail and dimension that results when these layers are cut out.  Each can have up to four layers, and they are simply stunning on anything from cards to holiday home décor.

Note: The HSN bundle will include the universal overlay required for the cartridge, so there’s no need to purchase anything extra!

Now I know you want to win this amazing item, so here’s how you can!

Asking you all of these questions about your holiday traditions and the reasons why you make your own Christmas cards got me thinking even more about how powerful the Holiday Trimmings Kit could really be.

This year, if all of the cards from every kit are sent out, there will be over 1.6 million recipients of handmade Anna Griffin holiday cards all across the country. Can you believe it?!

So tell me, who is going to help me start this Christmas card making extravaganza on September 17th?!!!

I’ll see you on Monday for a very special video message, the Cricut cartridge giveaway and the announcement of the ultimate Christmas crafting giveaway winner!

Have a holly jolly weekend,
Santa Anna Claus

    Sad when you aren’t home when you start.  Really looking forward to the Christmas cartridge with universal overlay.  Please bring another one back.  Everything sells out so quickly.  Love, love all of your products.  Am looking forward to seeing more wonderful ideas and products in the 24-hour extravaganza.

         Oh, I would so love to have this cartridge. Making cards and scrapbook pages with holiday layouts is always a challenge for me.  I don’t live anywhere near a scrapbook store and have to make  all my embellishments, etc. Thank heavens for Cricut and Cuttlebug. I’d be lost without those.

    Color combination and cuts look really great.  I will start to make cards for Xmas in October to have them ready to mail for Xmas.  This cart. would be great.

    Dear Anna,
    I’m resting up for my 24 hour ANNATHON. You have brought such joy to so many people. I hope you know how truly special you are. I wanted to let you know that if you run out of any items tonight, you can call me-I’m sure I have them around here somewhere. I used some ‘Haven’ items yesterday. I forgot how beautiful and still so timley your things from long ago continue to be.
    Thank you for so many years of creativity and amazingly thoughtful things that pop out of that lovely brain of yours.
    Have a wonderful time these next few days, and remember, that ‘blue and white’ plan was  MY idea. Love and hugs for you and, Georgie..
    Most sincerely, Lou, the Chanukkah dreamer!

    I will be right there with you and all those who’ve commented as well as the (I’m sure) thousands more who have not commented to get started with holiday spirit and the great means to share it with all we can. I’ve already started a little early since last time I ordered inks, was told that they were in my order, then when the order arrived without them was told there were no more. To avoid that since the quality and the colors themselves of your inks are unique, I got them earlier this week and can now concentrate on your fun demonstrations, the wonderful “eye candy”, and getting the other things on my long ” have to have” list of Anna Griffin goodies. Looking forward to a fun day, great demonstrations, all your sharing, and hope you have as much fun as we all will. Happy beginning Festivities!

    Hello Anna Griffin, my fingers are getting fat (need more crafts of yours to work on), won’t you please put your Cricut cartridge in my winter hat?  If you haven’t got a cartridge than a card kit will do, and if you haven’t got a card kit, then God Bless YOU!  Hope I win!!!

    Hi Anna, Your kits are FAN-TAB-U-LOUS… Oh My Goodness…  I wish you would have Anna Griffin Crafting Days every month. I CAN NOT get enough of your projects. I would love, love, love to see an entire package of just “JEWISH ” related celebration, i.e. wedding, births, sympathy, bar & bat mitzvah & religious holidays.  Having just those bundled up in one huge package would be ANNA AWESOME.   giggle giggle…..
    I’d also love to see an entire package that is geared towards “Masculine, He Man, Guy ” type stuff.
    I love making all my cards and getting them mailed out the day after Thanksgiving.  I like to see if I can get them out to my family and friends before they can send me theirs.  giggle giggle..

    On mine, I use decorative scissors to re-shape the edges of the cards, inserts and tags. I also add some tule and some petite string of pearls to my cards.

    My Mom loves them so much that she will hangs all of them up.

    Thank you so much for making such FAN-TAB-U-LOUS  Crafting Packages. My favorite kind of packages…. are your kits.

    Have a Blessed Day…
    Pauline Tallerico

    Hello Anna – I am new to crafting with Cricut, and this cartridge has the most beautiful images for paper crafting and home décor
    projects.  I would love to own it!  I will be watching you on HSN from midnight and throughout the day.  I have already begun
    shopping for my Anna Griffin products for Christmas crafting with family and friends.  Thank you for these previews and all the great products & inspiration!!

    I like making homemade Christmas cards each year because it brings me joy  knowing how much the recipients like them. I put a small piece of myself into each card and enjoy sharing my love of cardmaking.

    My mom always looked forward to my cards. She wanted to know who the card was for and where was hers. I collect your paper (obsessed). I even use as background in my picture frames, others are too pretty to part with. Looking forward to what’s new and even though she has passed I know she is happy to see me crafting again.
