Last Minute Christmas Must Haves Part 2

Happy Halloween week and welcome to another HSN November 14th preview! We couldn’t quite squeeze in all of our holiday items into last week’s sneak peek, so we had to bring you part 2!

Many of you who watched my October shows on QVC UK were gaga over the Christmas Garland Stickers, and now they are headed to HSN! These 24 three-dimensional holiday banners were designed to coordinate with the Holiday Trimmings Card Making Kit or any of our holiday papers. They are absolutely beautiful as is, or you can get extra creative and deconstruct them if your heart desires!

You’ll also love the everyday version of this kit- our All Occasion Sentiment Garlands. These include cheerful banners for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, newborns, anniversaries, birthdays, and the list goes on. There’s even a masculine look for him! This is one of those sticker libraries that you will use all year long, so be sure
to stock up.

Next is a set of 80 new Christmas 3D stickers, containing 40 sentiments and 40 festive images in each of our holiday themes. You’ll never run out of the right things to say or that finishing touch on a card or layout with these stunning stickers.

Now, you know we always save the best news for last. The Holiday Trimmings Christmas embossing folders that were previously only available through our autoship program will now available to purchase separately! And all of you auto-shippers can testify that these produce a truly brilliant result. Don’t let them pass you by if you
don’t have them already!

That’s all for today! Check back next Tuesday for all things organizing! We have some AMAZING new things to get your craft room looking chic in no time.

See you soon!
Anna

    Anxiously awaiting the 14th.  I’ve been watching dvr recordings of your last shows.  I wasn’t in love with embossing until I purchased your Cuttlebug.  Now, I cannot get enough!

    Hello there Anna.  Love, love, love those banners.  They just look so chic.  I just think it’s great the way all of your items work together.  It is so obvious how much thought and planning goes into your products.  We all appreciate them and you so much.  Looking so forward to “Anna School” on November 14th.

    Kind regards from Jarrettsville, Maryland.

    IS it wrong to want everything? My husband is going to get  to wondering how long auto ship goes for. I already finished my Christmas card kit. I really couldn’t wait. Everything item you make is so beautiful. I can’t wait to see the organization tools.

    Greetings Miss Anna & Co!
    I am loving the previews and you are right…I adore the banners! They will definitely set the cards and scrapbook pages above and beyond the already gorgeous layouts!

    Looking forward to the next preview and maybe a few new picts of Georgie!

    All the Best!

    Oh, Anna & Team……….ya’ll have made some precious Christmas and Everyday Banner stickers.  Love them all

    I have given strict instructions to my daughter to be sure that the hospital TV is set on HSN on Nov. 14th. I might be a bit woozy from surgery but I bet I can still watch and hopefully buy ! LOL

    Thank you all for the great products you design for us card and scrapbook makers.

    Have a marvelous Thanksgiving and Wonderous Christmas

    Hugs to all,
    Annie Laura

    Hi Anna,
    I have been having a blast making cards from your new Christmas Cardmaking kit.  I have been using the embossing folders, dies, vellum quotes, stickers, etc.  Each card I make looks amazing.  You have truly created an amazing kit this year.  Thanks for the sneak peeks for the Nov. 14 shows.  I can’t wait to get my hands
    on some of your new products.
  16. Posted by: georgia
    Anna this looks like another marvelous lineup of products.  Can’t wait to purchase them.

     Hello Anna, It’s Me Again, Debbie Dunn. I can’t Believe it has been more than a year ago I won the Beautiful Anna Griffin Give Away.
    i am really anxious to see the Craft Room Accessories and Storage
    you mentioned last week, as you know I have been working on Creating My Anna Griffin Scrapbook Room. I have a long way to go but at least I have started on Creating my Dream Room. I have had a
    slow time of it trying to figure out how to make it work for me. I hope to have the room finished I hope by the New Year. I just might  have to order more of the Anna Griffin Storage Boxes, I have two complete sets now. The Storage Boxes really do make my Scrapbook Room say. “Anna Griffin”. Thank You So a Much Anna Griffin for All you Stand For,  Beauty and Elegance. I can’t wait for My Room to be finished. All My Best to you and your Team.
    Sincerely,
    Debbie Dunn

    Hello Anna
    I have just read reference to the Christmas Embossing Folders!
    Does that mean that they will be available in the UK ?
    I hope so
    LoveMarg

    Thank you Anna and Team for another sneak peek.  🙂   Gosh I hope I have been very very good this year so that Santa will bring me my growing wish list!

    Anna your creativity and designs never fail to amaze! I will be watching your blog, facebook and of course every show on HSN. I will be very sad however because I am on a fixed income and every spare cent between now and Christmas will be going for gifts for my children and grandchildren. I will be back to buying on HSN after the New Year and I will be purchasing everything I can that’s still in stock at that time. I love your products and they provide many hours of enjoyment for me and my family! Thanks to you and your staff for all you do!!!

HSN November 14th Preview Last Minute Christmas Must Haves

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the first sneak preview leading up to my HSN shows on November 14th! Be sure to mark your calendars for three fun-filled hours at 9 a.m., 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST. We’re going to have everything from stickers to craft storage, but first here are some last minute Christmas must-haves!

Nothing adds holiday cheer to a present quite like beautiful, three-dimensional gift tags. Our new Festive Gift Tags kit includes 48 beautiful tags and 48 stunning seasonal embellishments that you can mix and match with ease. I just love these and know that you will too!

Next is our new 6×6 Christmas Card stock, featuring 96 sheets from four unique holiday themes: Christmas Kitsch, Emerald Forest, Yuletide Greetings and Winter Wonderland! If you’ve already bought our 12×12 papers or any of our holiday embellishments this year, then these will coordinate flawlessly. Use them for 6×6 card bases, or play around with cutting out the shapes with a craft knife!

Once your presents are wrapped and your cards are made, you will love giving them that extra “wow” factor with our gold and silver envelope liners, bows and sentiment stickers. These pair perfectly with the Holiday Trimmings Card Making Kit, which will also back in November!

I hope you are getting as excited as I am about the upcoming shows. We’ll be back next Tuesday with even more brand new last minute Christmas items, so stay tuned!
Anna

    Your Christmas tags are beautiful.  I have given my daughter strict instructions to make sure the hospital TV is set on HSN Nov 14 since it the day after my dbl knee replacement!
    PI might be able comprehend much but watching you on HSN will certainly make my day much happier!

    i have thoroughly enjoyed using my Winter Wonderland Cartridge to make more Christmas cards gift tags and scrapbook page decor stickers.
    My Holiday Trimmings Cards are ready and waiting to be mailed!  Thank you for such a grand kit. I kept some elements aside for scrapbook pages!

    Wishing you, Anna d your Team
    a marvelous Thanksgiving

    Thank you Anna and team, I have done over 100 cards for Christmas with your wonderful card set I bought when you were at HSN last, once I made your suggested cards My creative juice got to flowing and I had a blast creating my own designs. They all turned out beautifully. can’t wait to see what you are bringing Nov.14th.
  3. Posted by: Susan T
    I think I’ve bought everything else so far (BIG BIG HSN bill!!!), but I will definitely buy the 6 x 6 papers.  By the way, the gold and silver liners with bows and sentiments make even the simplest card look LUSH!  Definitely recommend them!
  4. Posted by: Joan C
    I love your Winter Wonderland, it reminds me of the holiday season before I moved to Florida and everything here is Palm Trees, sure miss the snow and a good razing blizzard.

    I can’t believe it’s almost time to decorate for Christmas!  I love the gift tags and can’t wait to get the 6×6 paper set!!

    Love tag idea I have always made my own but this year I won’t
    have to.             Thanks Linda

    More great new products … LOVE IT!  I have nearly all my cards completed from the Christmas Card Kit … it was such fun, I’m ready to do more.   BTW, the envelope liner kit (with the sentiments and bows) is fabulous … I definitely recommend it to anyone that also purchased the Christmas Card Kit.  Anna, is there a way that you could make those little bows available in a larger variety of colors?  I love the colors you have now, but would also like some in blue, green, pink, cream, yellow, white, etc., and sell them seperatly?   I am looking forward to November 14th … see you then!  =)

    Be well!

    Hello Anna:
    As always, everything looks wonderful.  I just ordered another Holiday Trimmings kit. . . just can’t get enough, you know.  It’s gonna be an Anna Griffin Christmas for sure here.  I even sent my husband some suggestions of the few items I haven’t bought at HSN for Christmas.

    On another note, I am getting ready to go on a trip to Arizona, the Grand Canyon, etc.  I was wondering if you have ever thought of doing a kit with kind of an “earthy” feel to it.  I know that is a departure from what you normally do, but with your flair, it would be awesome!

    Thanks to you wonderful team, especially Ashley!   Simply the best!

    Kind regards from Jarrettsville, Maryland

    Good Evening Miss Anna & Team!
    Whew!  You have been busy for sure and it shows with ALL of your gorgeous creations!  It looks as though we are going to have so very much to look forward to!  Circled Nov 14th on the calendar and cleared the schedule…the anticipation is difficult but exhilarating and also, give me more time to save a few pennies!

    Keep the great previews coming!
    Thank You

    I love all the new christmas merchandise. So happy to get my hands on the christmas stamp set today. Missed it on the 24 hour extravaganza…  how about doing another iris folding kit. I have a couple sets of the previous releases and truly love them…but I’d love more. Lol.   How about a cat version or your spin on toile papers, fabrics and coordinates.  It could be Georgie’s line
  21. Posted by: Arleen
    Really love the Christmas card making kit.  Wish I could say my cards are all done but so far, they are not.  I will get my bustle to hustle and I’ll get working.  Looking forward to November, thanks for all you do.

    Hello Anna!  I have yet to start my Christmas cards – after Nov. 14 and your next show!  I have to admit, I am very anxious to see what comes after Christmas TOO!  I’m always in a big rush to see your next new products no matter what time of the year.  You are so exciting!  It’s like being a kid at Christmas all year long, Anna!
  25. Posted by: ElizabethD
    Anna, thank you so much for doing the 6 x 6 Xmas Cardstock without the envelopes. A scrapbooker’s wish come true. Please do more, with some solids for the rest of the year. It is difficult to get solid paper to match your papers.
  26. Posted by: Kathy Brubaker
    I just can’t wait.  I love Christmas and Anna makes Christmas even more exciting with all of her craft projects.
  27. Posted by: Vivian Kochis
    The Christmastime Card is beautiful.  What a wonderful inspiration.  I wish I could run downstairs to my craft room, but I have a family to take care of first.

    Looking forward to next week’s preview!

How To Video: Rosettes

Whew!

    Hi Anna!
    I love your blog and always make sure I catch you on HSN. I am downsizing from a house where I have a dedicated craft room to a space where I will have to use as a craft/guest space. So having a piece of
    furniture like your craft desk will help me be organized and beautiful to look at as well.
  2. Posted by: Joan
    I have a picture of the perfect craft room and every month I buy one piece to add o the room, On split coast stamping they have one heck of a peoce that hold all your ink pads along with the ink refills and markers, I can’t wait to see what you have to offer form your craft room,  Any thing to help me stay organized. See you in November.

    Thanks so much for the video it is very helpful.  Now I can also make some for my new granddaughters birth anouncements.  Cant wait until Nov. 14th nothing like wishing your life away but I do love you Anna you are just so fantastic.

    Thank you Anna and Team for the video on how to make rosettes!  I appreciate this very much.  🙂  I am a newbie to making rosettes, unlike a lot of your fans here, so that one minute video was totally helpful!!  Thank you , thank you!

    Looking forward to your November show.  And your sneak peeks!!! 😉

    All the best!

    Thanks for the video, very helpful.
    Like everyone else I count the days till your next show.  I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw I had most all of your list 🙂
    I see the floral Impressions card kit is coming back.  I have bought two of them- one in July and one in sept.  But I missed the sentiment inserts that go with them, I was so busy buying new stuff that they sold out just as I was trying to buy them.  It does not look like you will have them this time and they aren’t included in the kit.   How could I get some more of the sentiments that fit both sizes of the FI kit?  Could you put some in your store on your web site?

    I sure would like to see a set of sentiments that were all birthday.  Or perhaps you could do a set
    of stamps that are all birthday related.  Another thing I would love to have is a set of stamps that could be used for mens cards toppers such as ships, geese, fishing, hunting, deer, boats, anchors,  basketball, american football.  That would be so neat to have a set of stamps to make mens cards with.  Kits are wonderful but once they are made it is usually a long time till we can buy them again as you don’t sell them in stores and they sell out on tv.

    There is a pink and red striped cardstock in the Christmas kit from HSN and used with the Christmas Kitsch cards on Pinterest- does Anna Griffin Inc. sell it and/or where can I buy more of it? It looks fantastic with the Christmas Kitsch cardstocks-so nostalgic! Thanks!

    Hi Anna: Just like everyone else I cannot wait for Nov 14. I am having surgery on the 7th so I will be home recuperating. I am trying to print the list of items for the show and I cannot. Can you tell me how I can print the list. I want a hard copy.
    Thanks

    Can’t wait to see your November show and more great products and ideas.  I had requested a stamp storage binder some time ago – looking forward to seeing that!!!  THANK YOU!  It’s great that you can be so interactive with your customers.  I think I speak for many when I say it’s appreciated!  Love the rosette video tutorial, hope you continue to do those on different subject areas.  THANKS AGAIN!
  11. Posted by: Kim Haygood
    Thank you for sharing how to make the rosettes. I guess the fans are just the same except only half of the circle. I have never made one even though I have the Holiday Trimmings card kit. Now I will know how to add some more “Wow!” to my cards. I think I learn better by watching someone else in a tutorial and then getting to try it myself. Thanks for taking the time to make a video for this, Anna!

    I ordered several things from your last two shows on HSN and now I have to cool it a little on the spending, but I will be watching for all your new things and will get them as I am able! Thank you for all the beauty and inspiration you put into our hands to bless other people!

    Love your Christmas Perfect Palette.  When embossed they are really impressive.  Can’t wait for Nov 14.  Would you ever consider doing a Perfect Palette box with all the beautiful A7 & A2 layers you have had in your card kits?  The layers in your card kits are so beautiful. Thanks for the wonderful job.

    Hello Anna:
    Just wanted to tell you again how much I love everything that you presented and I bought in September and . . .boy, did I buy.  Just got my bill.  YIKES!

    Anyway, looking forward to November 14.  Am I understanding correctly that you are on November 14th and then not until March?  That is much too long between visits!  Withdrawal is a horrible thing!

    Kind regards

    Hi Anna, I love the things I bought the last time on HSN and can not wait for the new things you will have..I am wondering if the christmas garland stickers the same ones you had on the U.K. show? Also is the Elegant arrangement folders new or where they on altoship?
  15. Posted by: ElizabethD
    Anna, thank you for the great tip on the rosettes. Could you do one on the cricut cartridge, could you show how to cut one of the ornaments (never having used my cricut) it would help. And thank you so much for the list of items for the next HSN show.
  16. Posted by: Faye Thompson
    Thank you for the great tip on the pleated rosettes.  What a help that will be.  That’s a very long list to shop by.  See you in Nov.
  17. Posted by: Laura Lowther-Blake
    Anna,

    Thanks for the tips. I can’t wait to see all the new things. I look forward to ordering the Christmas folders I wasn’t able to get on autoship. I’m still unpacking so I haven’t been able to set up my craft room which is driving me crazy. I hope I can get it done soon I really want to use all my Anna Griffin stuff I bought last month.  Best wishes and thanks for all you do.

    I’ve been waiting for this day.  Except for the furniture, I have all but 9 items.
    You work so hard to bring so much to us at reasonable prices so that makes you my hero.  I think I’ll dress as my hero for Halloween this year.
    Myself and my friends in rural communities in New Mexico will once again be texting and calling each other as we watch you in November.

    Dear Anna,

    Will you be able to show all those items in just one day?   I’m looking forward to seeing the sticker garlands and the stamp storage and kit.  Except for the furniture I have most of the other items.  I might actually be able to stay under budget this time!  Anxiously waiting to see the previews and the HSN shows on 11/14.

    Love your designs and all you do for your customers and fans.  You are such a lovely lady.

    Hi Anna,
    Thank you for the video on the Rosette.  That made a lot of sense to add adhesive to the top after pleating it.  I love your stuff, and I told my husband that there should be some Christmas items that he can get for me.  He loves that I do this, since it is something that I like or want.  Makes it easy on him too!.  Can’t wait till the 14th.

    Greetings Miss Anna!
    Thank you very much for the great tutorial on the rosettes! Really wonderful tips for sure!
    I have November 14th circled on my calendar…I think I will need to increase my credit limit!
    Anticipating all the sneak previews too! Not sure how you find the time to do them but I’m sure glad you do!
    Thanks Again,

    Hey Anna, it’s Debbie Dunn Again!!! I am still working on My Anna Griffin Scrapbook Room, slowly it is coming together, I have put all my Anna Griffin Products in the Anna Griffin Boxes so I can
    go right to it. I have so far bought 5 of the Embossing File Boxes, the Original one That was smaller I put all of the Other Cuttle Bug Embosing Folders in them they fit perfect in the sleeves. I put all the Anna Griffin Embossing Folders in another Box keeping the Christmas ones in the rear of the Box. I also found the Metal embossing Dies fit perfect in the smaller sleeves to and put into a Seperate Embossing Box because I know you will design more of those. I don’t know if you are planning in designing a Seperate storage Box to hold those. Also need something to store the Rubber Stamps either a Box or Notebook Stle and of course the Protective Sleeves too. Never can have too much Anna Griffin Storage. I have also bought 2 complete Sets oh the Anna Griffin Storage Boxes and
    I am looking to buy another Set or two. I Really like the box that hold the 12×12 paper, I like to keep the light off of if until I get to work on it. I am doing my Room in Pink and Green and White, when I finish it I will post my pictures. I am still hoping for a Smart Phone App for keeping track of my Anna Griffin Products. That would be so useful and that we could refer to your Card Samples too. That would be So Awesome!! Best Reguads to you and your Team!

    Thank you Anna for the rosette tutorial – you make this look so easy. I would not have known to add a strip of adhesive like you did. I have had several things I had to finish (and of course work full time) so I haven’t started the cards from your Holiday Card Kit yet. I plan to start working on them next week so this information is just in time! The only issue I have is this: every layer is so beautiful that I don’t want to cover it up. lol  Your layered cards are fabulous – I’ll just have to work on it.
    Even though I was fortunate to get everything I wanted from your last HSN show I’m sure there will be more items I “need”. 🙂 I can’t wait – my calendar is marked.
    Thank you for all the inspiration you provide and the great tools, kits, etc. to use!!!

    Anna, I was able to get your Winter Wonderland Cartridge directly from Provo Craft, weeks before HSN had it.  So I was ready to rock and roll when you came out with your Christmas papers, etc., on HSN.  I’ve been working like crazy.  Thanks so much for the tip on the pre-scored rosettes.  Hadn’t thought of the glue.  I truly appreciate everything you do, all the products you sell, and the tutorials you have, to teach us all to be better crafters.  We love you!!

A Month of Frequently Asked Questions

Hi!  Thank you for the amazingly positive response to all of our new craft products. We are all so happy that you are happy!

I’m off to the UK today, but wanted to get your questions answered first.

1. When will you be back on HSN again?
November 14th at 9am, 12pm and 6 pm.

2. I am having trouble making the rosettes in the Holiday Trimmings Kit. Any tips or tricks?
I’ll post a quick video for you on Youtube next week, but here’s the quick version.
Cut a 1 inch square of cardstock and apply adhesive to one side and set aside. Start folding the paper strip from one end back and forth condensing the strip down to a small stack pinched between your fingers. The score lines are designed to help, and will go in both directions. Let go of the stack and it will spring apart. Apply adhesive along the bottom edge of the strip and on one end. Fold it back into the stack. Holding the edge with adhesive let the stack fan out into a wheel. Connect the ends where you applied adhesive completing the wheel. Add the 1 inch square of cardstock to the back of the wheel to secure.

3. Will the floral, flourish, holly and snowflake dies be back on HSN or QVC UK?
I’m happy to say they will all be back on in November on HSN. The Flower and Flourish dies will be back on QVC UK in February.

4. What about the Winter Wonderland Cricut Cartridge?
This is not scheduled to be back on HSN this year. It is available on www.annagriffin.com and we ship anywhere in the world.

5. What can we expect for future Cricut cartridges? Any hints?
Let’s just say that 2014 is the “Year of the Cricut for Anna Griffin”…Incredible things will be happening in March!

6. Do the three autoship kits (All About Love, All About Her and All About Him) come with pre-printed inserts like the Holiday Trimmings Kit did?
No, they come with the folded inserts that you apply yourself.

8. Will there be more guided layout scrapbooks available soon?
Yes, we have a cute little set of mini albums coming up in January.

9. I noticed that there will be Christmas banner flags on QVC UK. Can we expect to see those on HSN as well?
Yes, in November. They pair beautifully with the Holiday Trimmings Christmas card making kit!

10. When will the Elegant Arrangements embossing folder bundle be back on HSN?
November!

11. When will more embossing folder sleeves be available for the embossing folder storage?
They will be on HSN.com as soon as the stock comes in – keep checking back.

12. How about the holiday metallic layers and wreath stamps?
Those are complete for this year – perhaps they will make a come back in 2014!

13. I saw many of your layouts and cards on Pinterest. Will you be posting more soon?
We update our Pinterest boards every week with new projects.

14. When is the next 24-Hour Craft Day?
It is scheduled for March on HSN.

15. What do you do between on-air sessions on HSN?
Work! Believe it or not, there’s no down time. Setting up and tearing down a craft product takes the most time back stage. It took 3 of us 2 days on September 17th at full throttle.

16. When is the next Scrapbook Super Sale on annagriffin.com?
It will be before the end of the year. If you haven’t signed up to get our newsletter, please do so because that’s how you find out about the sale!

17. Are we going to get a sneak peek at your new craft furniture line soon?
Yes, you will. I’m going to preview everything in the November shows in the coming weeks!

I’m off!
Anna

SERIOUSLY>> Yes, I am shouting…

    Hi!
    I am finishing up my Floral Impressions Cards. This is my 2nd box. I felt that you were going to make me creative if I felt I could do it or not. Well I would lay out the card and leave it on the table and every time I passed it would look it over, some time making a change but would leave it over night and if I liked it the next day I would finish the card. Well doing it this way it was taking a long time. But after a week or so it was going faster.
    I am using one of your very very old card kit and Beautiful Bouquets along with what I have. I find that I like the 72 floral die cuts with the paper that came with the old kit better then the new papers.I only make birthday and Christmas cards. I found that I did not have enough birthday sentiments so I had to get creative. I pulled out my punches and stamps pulled off the top layer of the sentiment and traced it on a sheet of light card stock. Didn’t have a punch that was the right size. anyway got my stamps and looked for all the stamps that said Happy Birthday I found that I was not happy with them until I pulled out yours I found that I had 3 that would work. They were so nice. Did not have the thick lettering but fine thin lettering and looked just right. I used a Qtip to put a ring of color around the sentiment it’s ok but was thinking if I could buy  the sentiments that looked just like what you have in the kit but with no lettering in the middle and not attached to the other layers I could use my stamps to print “Happy Birthday” and still would have the nice ring around the sentiments.
    also I would like more stamps of sentiments that would fit on the sentiments that go on the top of the card.
    I would also like to be able to buy the birds and butterflys by themselves. I like to put them inside the card on the blank left side.
    or even some flowers but they all would have to be flat to do this.
    I did get the big box of Christmas card. They will be for next year. This year I am sending the card kits I got last year and made in July. So next July I’ll be making the new set for Christmas 2014 and in Sept 2014 I’ll be looking to buy card kits for 2015.
    I hope you will keep making the large kits. I was down to my last two cards when this box arrived. I live in a senior apt complex and like every one else says the ladies just love these cards in fact just yesterday a lady told me that the card I gave her on her birthday she placed it on a pedestal. These cards mean a lot to these ladies I will not stop giving them out. and last year they like the Christmas cards also. I saw the video on making the rosette Thank You for that. You would have fell off your chair if you had watched me trying to make the rosette. But I go it made but it does not look as good as yours.
    I would like more paper projects. In pulling out all of your papers that I have, not counting the scrapbooks I find I have a stack 2 feet high. So need to use it.
    Thank You

    First, thanks for all your wonderful products. I am starting new family traditions with your products this year. I received the cricut cartridge and I am having the same problem getting the handbook online. I receive an error message. Please let us know when it is corrected, thank you.
  8. Posted by: cheri lee
    Hello Anna,
    I purchased many of your products and am trying to go to the handbook/manual site.  There are two listings: wwwcricut.com/handbook; and www.cricut.com/linkcartridge,  which both give me a 404 error message.  I was wondering how to find the site.  I did receive a small handbook with very few words or directions.  I am an old cricut user and use the Expressions with the larger handbooks and each has it’s own overlay.  Please help.  Feeling really old and like a big dummy.  LOL.
    Sincerely,
    Cheri Lee

    Hi Anna. I was wondering if your other card kits were going to be made available for purchase in November?
  10. Posted by: HollyG
    Hello Miss Anna!
    You looked absolutely stunning on QVC UK! Not a hint of jet lag! How’d you do that?  Truly exciting and something to look forward to in November, and then there is the waiting! Tick, tock…tick, tock… I am very intrigued about your visit in March also! I am sure your and your team are extremely busy right now, burning the midnight oil so “they” say! Your hard work and creativity are so welcomed and in my world…needed!
    Thank you for all your dedication and hard work!

    Thank you for answering all the questions. One more for you—I have several card making kits and mix & match embellishments. Is there an easy way to tell which pieces have sticky backs?

    Thank you.

    Hello there, Anna.
    Just wanted to say that I went to an overnight crop/cardmaking party this weekend with some friends and got a chance to finally dive into the Holiday Trimmings cardmaking set.  The results are just stunning!  Also, everything goes together so nicely with this kit; the borders, the metallic papers, and a lot of stuff I already had, too!  I made 70 cards!  Need to make about 30 more and I’m set for the holidays.
    Just wanted to say “thanks” for making me feel so good about making  holiday cards!  I also love your Pinterest page.  You are always helping us succeed and it means so much to us.  Thanks again.

    Kind regards from Jarrettsville, Maryland

    Anna, I have had so much fun with the Holiday Trimmings card kit! Everything in it is just so beautiful and well done! My favorite thing in the kit is the mini vintage postcards! They are just so beautiful and take me back to my childhood at Christmastime! Will you please, please make a little kit or die cut pack especially for these? I would LOVE to have more of these for myself—thinking about doing some kind of Christmas collage in a frame for ME! Thank you so much for the many hours of happiness and creative joy you give to each one of us!!!

    Hi Anna, Love all your products !!
    will the Holiday Stamp Set me on your next HSN show?

    Hi Anna,
    What a wonderful time we had on the 17th.  Actually I bought most of my things before.  I didn’t want to take the chance of not getting everything I wanted.  I bought  just about everything.
    I bought 2 of  the Holiday Trimmings.
    I really wish I could have bought 3, we are going to have such a big turn out at our card party I hope there will be enough cards for everyone.
    It has all come in and every thing is so beautiful!!!
    And Anna, you looked so pretty.  I love watching you, your such a lovely person.
    I have and Anna Griffin story I want to share:
    Before the 17th I had been on the computer almost everyday for weeks, checking all you blogs,  HSN, pinterest, and in the middle of the night and early morning, watching you on UK.  I was even on my Daughters facebook page.  I’m not on facebook.
    A couple of days after the HSN show, for some reason our internet would not work.  My husband kept working and working on it.  Finally he threw up his arms and jokingly said, “I know whats wrong with this.  We have an  ANNA  GRIFFIN  VIRUS!!!!”  My whole family laughed and laughed.  I got alot of teasing.  So now it’s a family joke that my husband has to clear our computer every time I’m looking at anything from Anna Griffin.
    It turned out that one of our sons had accidentally unplugged a wire.
    I’m looking forward to November 14th.  I have already told my husband that you will be on then and that’s what I want for my birthday, which is on the 10th.  He says he’s not sure our computer can handle that again.
    I watched you on UK yesterday and enjoyed every minute.
    Thanks again to you and your team for all you bring us.
    Oh! I love your little kitten, Georgie.
    He reminds me of my daughter’s.  He grew up to be the kindess cat I have ever seen.

    I am so in love with all of your ribbons and would love to know when and where I could buy them.  I would love to have the ribbons that match your pre-made bows.  Thanks for all you do for us Anna.

    Sue, if you CALL HSN and order the Holiday Trimmings AUTOSHIP, then immediately have the agent cancel H.T., but leave the autoships in place,you’ll get what you’re looking for. They did it for me on the 17th when Anna was initially on. I’m sure they can still do it! Good luck…

    Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all our questions and keeping us updated on your products.  In the last blog someone had a great request – would you be selling more of the paper bows that came in the card kit – I hope you will add that to your line, they are uniquely beautiful!  Thanks again and have a wonderful and, no doubt successful, trip!

    Anna, I was one of the lucky recipients in your countdown contest for your big appearance on HSN a couple of weeks ago.  I won the Christmas vellum quotes and Decoupage Die Cuts.  And, I found an extra goody in with those items as well.  So, thank you once more for your generosity and for making up such a fun contest!  I truly appreciate your creativity and genuine concern for your fans and customers.  You have me as a customer for life!  Happy Holidays to you and your wonderful staff!

    Thanks much, Anna!  Looking forward to seeing you Nov. 14 on HSN.  I will enjoy making Christmas Trimmings cards throughout October–received all my items last week, and demonstrated the Cuttlebug to my sister who was visiting, as well as showed her how to make your Christmas cards from some leftover pieces-parts.  She’s hooked!  Happy Trails!

    Suggestions on how to use the velum labels so that they don’t look like a cheap sticker.
    do you apply them to a colored piece of paper and use a die cut to hide the edges?
    they are cute, but lack the classy look of your other items.

    Anna. my new wreath stamping kit that I just purchased on HSN came with two “inner circle stamps” instead of one inner and one outer! I am very disappointed! What to do? Anyone else have this problem?

    Hi Anna,
    Well, as usual I’m working on making cards.With a large family there’s always a birthday or anniversary, plus holidays. Keeps me really busy, but never too busy to keep checking in at your blog, HSN, Pinterest etc.
    Wish I was going to  the UK also  – have a grand-daughter who lives in London, and her BD is this month. I have her BD card ready to mail, and will be going to PO to mail it with all the grandeur of my Anna Griffin kit and embellishments. This is the 1st. time to mail something out of the US,so need to learn the “ropes”.
    Bon Voyage, & safe trip,
    love,
