    Thank you

    I am just getting started with your items and am LOVE!  I make Christmas cards and am on the autoship cards  from hsn.  (love them too).  I got the cricut explore but am lost on how to get your designs that came with the bundle.  Any help? When I click on your designs, it tells me that it can’t be purchased yet.  I purchased the monthly fee for all the designs.  Any help on finding yours?
    Thanks for all the wonderful projects,

    Congratulations to Kristi!  I bet that made her day!

    I got to watch one of the shows on QVCUK.  It was great, as usual. Can’t wait until the 24th.  I’m actually thinking about joining Facebook just so I can be entered in these contests.

    Wish you all the best, Anna.  Hope you got back to the States safely.

    Kind regards from Jarrettsville, Maryland

    Thank you SO much for bringing us some of your goodies to QVC on Friday.  And a big special ‘thank you’ for the scrapbooks:  have been desperate for another one, so the three mini ones were just an absolute bonus.  I can’t wait to get my hands on everything (and I mean just about everything you brought!!!)  On the last spot it was mentioned you will be with us again on 15 April.  Bring it on!!!!!

    I entered and shared on FB. Been talking up the explore with my crafty friends since last month’s show. Now I’m glad I waited so long to get an electronic die cutter-I’ve been waiting for this one.

    Anna, Anna, Anna!!!  My Explore did not arrive as I had hoped but all the accessories that I ordered did.  I thought, I can wait until Monday, I waited this long…silly me, MAJOR SNOW AND ICE Storm to begin Sunday and snow over a foot on Monday.  Not sure the UPS driver will make it.  Explore’s software site appeared but I did not enter it until I had the little darling right next to me to practice as I was being taught.  There are many YouTube videos out there about the new Explore and the comments are just wonderful and the users for the Beta testing could hardly be contained.  Hopefully Tuesday will be OK…good luck to all you folks who are in the midst of this awful storm, keep warm, safe and prepared.  Make Anna’s cards until the storm is over…as looks now I will be making Christmas Cards!
    Anna I hope you got home before all the airports shut down here on the East Coast.  Thank you for such wonderful projects to make and welcome home to a frenzy of new Explore Friends!

    Hi Anna, I would like to know where to find the additional sleeves for the embossing folder storage box that’s featured on HSN.  I can’t seem to find them and I have many of your folders, so I would love to get some. Thanks!

    I love Anna Griffin products and have “liked” on Facebook, but I could not enter the contest because it gives the Sweepstakes access to my friends. Why is that necessary?
  15. Posted by: D~DesignsByDragonfly.blogspot

    I’m not sure why I keep clicking on the email notification  and coming here since I can’t play along by simply being a blog follower.

    All I feel is disappointment when I get here,

    While I realize there have been other ways to win other goodies here on the blog this HUGE contest is the one I’m really interested in.

    So many great goodies and this week the Explore.

    How I would LOVE to win one of these but for now that dream is CRUSHED since I am ONLY just a LOWLY blog follower.

    Wishing those of you who can play along good luck.

    Hugs,

    D~

    Hello Anna
    It was lovely to see you QVC yesterday…. but sad thats its so rarely!
    I have recorded all the shows to watch again for more inspiration!
    I hope you had a safe journey home!
    Take care
    Love Marg

    Is anyone out there having trouble with getting their Cricut Explorer to recognize their “Device?’ Mine will not and therefore I can do nothing with my new Explore. And there is no Cricut Help on the weekend! Very dissappointing. One would think with the “thousands” sold that they would have some sort of help out there for the influx of customers. Anna, please know I LOVE your products and am a big fan, but I expected a bit more than this. If anyone has any ideas, please post and I will check.

    Hi Anna,
    Looking forward to the 24th!! Spring is just around the corner:) Your card kits and embellishments are lovely. Wondering if you will ever bring back your purple satin ribbon (think it may have been with All Night Media)–the color was breathtaking and the feel of the satin was silky smooth.

    So excited to see all the new stuff and the chance to win. Thank you!

    Hi, Anna and Staff- I have been “studying” the promotional picture for your awesome giveaways to try to see the new products that you will be presenting on the 24th. I have picked out so many goodies that I hope to purchase – just wish I could get a close-up! I am not a patient person, and it is hard to wait until your sneak peeks….Sigh! However, I WILL wait until the big reveal. Looking forward to seeing you on the 24th….
  22. Posted by: Annette J
    I LOVE the new products and can’t wait until the 24th to see what else is on HSN.  I just got the auto ship of all about her and can’t believe how beautiful everything is.  Best of luck to everyone…anyone who uses Anna Griffin products is a winner!  Thanks for creating such beautiful products Anna.
  23. Posted by: Cindy Michael
    Anna,   Thanks so much for all of your beautiful products.   I am retired and can only buy a few of your things each time you are on HSN.  My birthday is this Friday, March 7th, and I would really like to win one of the giveaways.  I just can’t wait until the 24th to see all of the new items. I have marked off the whole day just for HSN.  Thanks for givings all of us a chance to win.  Good luck everybody.

    Dear Anna, Greetings and many thanks from little old England.
    Thank you for 3 superb shows and lots of gorgeous products via QVCUK. My daughter and I are so excited as we can barely wait for all of the craft goodies to be delivered. I have to tell you that I really wanted to call in but was too shy.
    Thank you again, you bring your fan base so much joy.

    After reading other fan’s comments, I too, am not on facebook. It is disappointing that we all can not enter as, I am sure like myself, everyone of us have tons of your fabulous products! It does not keep me from reading each and every blog and slobbering–yes, that’s what I said–as we wait for those months when you appear on HSN!!!  And  I like to see who the winner’s are–with envy! Keep the goodies coming-as we won’t abandon you for sure!!

HSN March 24th Sneak Preview 1 – All Things Storage

Hi everyone!In case you missed the big news on Friday,  let me fill you in! For the next four weeks, we will not only preview all of our brand new items for HSN’s 24 Hour Craft Day on March 24th, but we will also give all of it and more away to 4 lucky winners!

Here’s a sneak peek at what great new things we’re giving away this week.


First up, we’ve decked out our craft room storage solutions in a beautiful new graphic rose pattern from our Grace Collection. This essential set includes nesting document boxes, card boxes, paper organizers, storage trays, magazine holders and embossing folder storage that will inspire you to get organized! This sturdy storage is constructed from laminated 300 point board, which gives it unmatched quality and durability.

Next is a brand new home for your Anna Griffin Cuttlebug! We wanted to design the perfect little handbag for your golden bugs to carry to scrapbooking events, card making parties or anywhere you need to tote your crafting necessities.  There are even extra pockets inside for your embossing folders!

Finally is our new Rolling Craft Tote with 4 storage bags.  This chic black bag is made of the same leather like material as the Cuttlebug bag, and the inserts allow you to easily store all of your tools, punches, ink pads and more. Or, you can remove the inserts and use it for travel. It’s so versatile!

Don’t forget to enter to win this fabulous prize package valued at over $400 by clicking here! If you are viewing the giveaway from a computer, you can also visit facebook.com/annagriffininc and click the pink “Enter to Win” tab at the top of our page.  We will draw a winner this Friday!

Thanks to our partners at Cricut, next week’s prize and previews are about the Explore!
See you then,
Anna

    Truly enjoying your products

    Anna,
    Are you going to be selling anymore of the cuttlebug embossing box inserts that hold the extra folders? They came 30 in a package.  I really need and want a couple more packs and they are sold out on HSN.   Please,Please!!! Thanks

    Awesome prizes thanks for the chance to win such Elegant products.

    So, be careful not to use building a ‘MVP’, as an excuse to build a flawed product – rather use its strengths to simplify your idea into its core components, build and test those, and then iterate on that learning.

     Whilst the benefits of this, are that it provides the flexibility to be used across different markets and industries, the disadvantage is that it may create the temptation to build something that fails to meet the ‘viable’ threshold.

    Love all you products and looking forward to all the new items.
    But I agree about the Facebook stuff.  There should be other ways
    to win.
  8. Posted by: Diane Cecil
    Hi Anna,  sitting here with my parents at the hospital waiting on moms labs.  Thought I would let you know how much I love your products.  My granddaughters 3&4 yrs. old love to use the cuttlebug and your ink and stamps.  But mamaw is stingy, they don’t get to use my pretty Anna paper!
  9. Posted by: Jennifer W.

    I LIKE YOU TIMES INFINITY ! ! !

    But why must I go on Facebook and say this for a chance to enter your givaways?  You have so many loyal fans who express that they like you and your products on this blog, not to mention how quickly things sell out on HSN !?!  Please offer an alternative giveaway method.  Will be watching on the 24th, been wanting a stylish home for my AG Cuttlebug, thought I was gonna have to make one – Thanks.

  10. Posted by: Merrie O.
    I wish there was a way for you to include those of us that are not on Facebook–please consider!

    I love the new Grace pattern storage and the Cuttlebug storage I need really bad!!  The rolling tote to match is sooo much wanted by me!  It’s elegant!

    ***! If I won this storage prize package I would keep the rolling tote organizer packed with items that my hubby could bring to me when I am in the hospital. What a pleasure it would be to be able to craft when I am there so that I don’t go stir crazy!!! With this tote I wouldn’t have to try to explain to him what I want him to bring because it would already be packed and waiting to come save me. He wouldn’t even be embarrassed bringing it because the tote is so stylish!!! I LOVELOVELOVE the Cuttlebug bag also! What a sweet pair!! Then you go and throw in those awesome floral storage pieces and I am swooning!!! I am sending up prayers hoping that I see my name this Friday so I will be the most stylish crafter around!!

    Would love to be a winner, but I have no desire to go on facebook. I am too private of a person to post my life out there. I love my privacy more than all your lovely products. Oh well, I can at least see you on HSN

    When you unpack your new Cricut Explore an hook it up to your computer there will be a link to connect to the right portion of Cricut’s website.  You register using the same sign in as your Cricut.com account using the same email – same log in and password.  Then all the cartridges you have linked to Cricut “Craftroom” will automatically be available in the Design Space for the Explore.  So it should be easy, I will let you know.

    I am waiting now everyday for the delivery of the Cricut Explore.  The other day I looked on line at the comments on some other cutting machines.  On each product there were owners who had problems or had an issue.  Like any product until it gets out into the general population the flaws or difficulties will not show up, but Cricut did a lot of pre-testing among the craft bloggers for their input.  With all the product research I am hoping that those of you who ordered it will have a smooth first operation and a good experience with the Cricut Explore. (No I do not work for Cricut.)  I think I will be in a learning curve for a few days and then be flying through my designs.  If I do not I will call tech support and hopefully get the right information to solve my problems.  I have found those nice people at Cricut have been patient and very helpful.  Sherrie Yosh

    I have a big sign on both my laptop and my IPAD for the 24th of March.  This way I am sure not to forget you when you will be on HSN.  Looking so forward to it.  Just received today your auto-ship of card kits.  Looks wonderful and very appealing to women. Can’t wait to dive in and see what I can create.  Thank you Anna and your team for creating this wonderful kits for us.  Sherrie Yosh

    Anna, First let me start by saying what a huge fan I am of yours. I have watched you since you were on QVC. I have some of your old punches and your Iris Folding Kits which I really love to make. Wish you would do some Iris Folding Kits for HSN.  I am so excited about your give away. Would really like to win something. Keep bringing us beautiful designs.

    Dear Anna:

    Thank you so much for all that you do for us.  I can’t believe that you are hosting yet another giveaway.  Your kindness and generosity is endless. Just loved your olive green dress on HSN in February.  It actually looked like it could have been one of your patterned papers.  Can’t wait until March 24th.

    Mrs Anna Griffin I was wondering if there will be a comeback on HSN with your chalkboard stamps Sadily I missed out on them the first airing I have been surching for them every where  thank you

    I recently took on the task of organizing my father in laws photos, ect.  He had passed several years ago and I kept putting it off, it made me feel like he was really gone.  Imagine my surprise when I discovered he had kept every card his family had sent to him.  When I ordered the card set for men, it was bitter sweet.  All I could think of is how he would treasure one of those. I had almost thoughtlessly picked out those cards, now I realize what they really meant to him, what we meant to him.

    I’m so excited to see what you have for us on March 24th.  Thank you for the chance to win some awesome prizes. I would enjoy any of them.  I just finished making 35 Christmas cards and now am anxiously awaiting some new items that I ordered from HSN so I can make more. I’m retired and if I had as much money as I had time it would be great.  Thanks Anna for all your great things.

    Hi Anna….Thanks for the opportunity to win some of your fabulous products. I’m so happy you’ve put out the new “Grace” pattern. What I’ve done in the past is buy something to suit my space needs and repainted/stenciled to the colors I like. Happy happy. : )

    These are the best giveaways ever!  I could never justify spending hundreds of dollars on the new Cricut, but I would not mind WINNING it!  I will definitely be asking for March 24 off so that I can scrapbook and watch Anna on HSN.  I fear I’m turning into a kind of Anna Griffin junkie!  Until then, happy crafting, everyone!

QVC UK February 28th Preview

Hi friends!

February may be a short month, but there has been no shortage of exciting things happening here at Anna Griffin, Inc.! I’m so thrilled that we are making a long overdue trip to QVC UK next week to bring you some brand new items, as well as some that you may have been swooning over from our HSN previews here on the blog.

Be sure to tune in Friday, February 28th at 10 a.m., 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. BST for all of the fun (that’s 5 a.m., 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST for those of you who like to watch online in the U.S.).  Meanwhile, here’s a peek at a few things you’ll want to make sure to add to your shopping cart!

We are celebrating our big 20th Anniversary milestone all year long, and it’s your turn to get in on the festivities! We’ve compiled the most beautiful collection of our favorite stamps, stickers and scrapbook paper from the last two decades into 3 of my favorite kits of all time.

Another popular product we will have in tow is the Chalkboard Clear Stamp Kit. This stylish set includes 30 clear stamps reminiscent of classroom chalkboards, featuring fun type design and great sentiments for any occasion. These are so fun and will likely go fast, so don’t delay!

Last up is something that all of my fellow floral enthusiasts are going to love. We’ve taken the beautiful cottage roses in our latest Grace collection and put them on all of our craft storage items! These beautiful boxes will make spring cleaning and organizing seem like less of a chore, and are the perfect home for your crafting supplies, photos, magazines and more!

See you on February 28th!
Anna

    Hi Anna I too am looking forward to your QVC UKvisit I do so hope I can watch it missed your last one and I do love your products and with my Son being diagnosed with Terminal Cancer fortnight before xmas lost interest in anything but my daughter suggested I make cards for cancer trust so that has got me going again.Have a safe journey,happy anniversary,please visit the UK more often I can’t seem to get hold of your things as much as I would like even on American sites and an item I ordered from your own site for some reason after I had been waiting weeks for it got cancelled not by me yet it’s still showing on your web.Safe journey to Uk .Love Mary xx

    Anna,
    I so love your designs. I have an upcoming wedding for my daughter and so hope she sees the same uses for your products as I do so we can enjoy the DIY process of the wedding. I have been hit hard over the past 5 years with unemployment and plan to upgrade my Cricut to the explore when I am able. The good news about your designs being available in May for cart users is well received.

    I also miss seeing you on QVC in the US – how do I access the QVC  UK via internet?  I have not been able to locate the website when I do the search.  Will you eventually offer those products via your own website?

    I’m emigrating to USA cos we don’t see enough of your lovely producs!

    Dear Anna,
    Greetings from little old England.I am so looking forward to your forthcoming visit to the UK. As usual I have watching your US shows and dreaming about the gorgeous products and projects that I might be able to create with them. My daughter and I have used the wonderful die cuts to create beautiful wedding celebration cards. A couple of friends will be attending 13 weddings this year and naturally want to give handmade cards. We would still love to extend an open invitation to tea. As your shows are due to be on Friday I will be able to watch as I don’t work on Fridays. It will be lovely to see you back in the UK. I’m sure your huge British fan base will be watching with relish. Wishing you a safe journey and an enormously successful set of shows.

    I too ordered during the Explore HSN event and am getting a delivery date of 4/2!  This seems abit lopsided to offer others this product on QVC and HSN with immediate delivery and a lower cost!  Please advise how we (your loyal HSN purchasers) can expedite our order!  This will be my 4th cricut and am hoping my choice to follow this line is correct.  Prior to hearing about the explore I had it in my mind a shilouette was my next purchase.
  7. Posted by: KymmLisa
    Anna, I believe someone else has mentioned the same thing I’m going to say.  When you unveiled the Explore, I was entering my credit card number into the checkout process, and before I could finish putting those numbers in a notice came up saying ” Product is Sold Out”  I was told I’d be on the waitlist, however when it does finally come in I will have to pay more and not have the option of flex pay.  How can I lose my Explore machine after it’s in my cart and on it’s way to being paid for?  I was and still am furious, not at you, it wasn’t your fault, but at HSN!  I will not be purchasing the Explore now, I refuse to give them my money!!

    Hi Anna, I am one of the male crafter that follow you like the caller you got on HSN, it was nice to here a male voice every once in a while. I and so excited about my Explorer if its going to be as easy as it looks on TV once i get it i might be using the party designs soon since i am turning 50 this summer i might start cutting party decor NOW in B&W and getting ready for some fun with decor and the masks idea that would be awesome fun for everyone to have.  And the invitations ideas i have from looking at the samples will be so impressive.  I will be watching you online for UK show and ready for your march show back here at home.  I am not a big flower guy but i do buy a few of those designs to use for my coworkers and MOM, they really enjoy them

    I’ll be watching online. Thanks for correcting the times for those of us in the US. Too bad QVC USA stopped selling crafts-I stopped being their customer when they cut the crafts and made the switch to HSN.

    Hi, Anna – This comment is somewhat different from the other posts, but I have a concern regarding the Cricut Explore and HSN. I ordered the Explore on your last visit and the launch of the machine. I am on extended delivery until 3/18. However, when I checked HSN today under Anna Grifffin I saw the Explore was available to order with a delivery date of 2/27. How is it possible to order the Explore NOW and have it delivered BEFORE those of us who ordered it on 2/12? I called Customer Service, and the rep I spoke with said the only way to get it prior to 3/18 was to cancel my original order, pay the higher price and order it now through HSN! Doesn’t seem fair to me – if the legions of faithful AG followers are astute enough to watch and order on “launch day” at the TSV price, why should we be penalized and have to wait longer to get our Explores? Very strange….It was my understanding that the reason we went into extended delivery mode was because Cricut could not produce the machines fast enough to meet the demand, BUT lo and behold – Magic! Cricut Explores are miraculously produced and are available for new consumers. Just sayin”….

    *** – the purple scrapbook layout/papers and flowers are absolutely STUNNING!!!  My wedding was in that colour – I was one of the first to have lilac in my area – when everyone else was in the throws of the peach era!!!  I love the colour of those papers and flowers.

    I can’t wait to see the chalkboard clear stamps because I’m a massive fan of your stamps, particularly the sentiment and greetings ones… they usually find their way either on the front or inside the card.

    Looking forward to you coming back to the UK Anna, have a safe trip here – see you on 28th.

    Paula x x x

    Can Chalkboard Sentiments be purchased in the US? Will this product return to HSN?
  13. Posted by: Lin M.
    How exciting for your UK fans that you will be on QVC there. I hope you have safe travels and another successful trip!
    I’m looking forward to your March HSN shows – my calendar is marked. I absolutely love the purple sheets used in the scrapbook layout. Would you ever consider doing a smaller collection with purples like that? Or even 6 x 6 pages?
  14. Posted by: Cherry Cronly
    Dear Anna
    I’m so pleased you are coming to qvcuk next week and soo looking forward to what you are going to bring with you. My family love and cherish the cards I make with your kits.  I’ve made my first ever scrap book with pictures of my mum and dad’s golden wedding celebrations which mum loves to show friends and family. My beloved dad is no longer with us but the happy memories are alive in the book. Mum is 80 on Thursday and I would love to make  scrap book of her birthday celebrations. Hope you don’t leave it too long before you’re back in the uk again.

    Hi Anna,
    Am a big fan of yours, can’t wait to see you in QVC UK.Love all your designs . Have been drooling over your website. Last time you were here I bought just about everything! Card making is very therapeutic  and it goes to all my family and friends abroad.

    Dear Anna,

    Please consider making a Christmas set of 3 mini instant scrapbooks.  They would make lovely gifts, plus presents to oneself.  Thanks.

    I missed the chalkboard stamps so I watched for them when you brought them back.  I am not surprised they sold out again.
    i am thrilled with all the items I purchased since your last hsn appearance.  Thank you for being a perfectionist and bringing us the best of everything.
    looking forward to your March visit to hsn.
    Safe travels.

    WOW what a beautiful wedding layout and in shapes of purple.  A family friend got married and her colors were purple. I hope to make a framed picture for her using your idea and wonderful products.

    Looking forward to the UK show…wish you were doing it here with QVC AND HSN.  Good luck and keep making the wonderful products.

    Hi Anna, Happy Anniversary! I bought a Cricut Explore with delivery scheduled for February 27th. I also missed your Chalkboard stamp set presented on HSN and wondered if you plan on featuring it on your March 24th show. Have a great trip.

    Really looking forward to your QVC appearances on the 28th, Anna.  Having been enviously eyeing your HSN appearances and fabulous blossoming Cricut partnership, the date has long been marked in my calendar, (not in a stalky way!).  Am super-excited that the chalkboard stamps will be appearing … can’t wait to see what else appears, and to your endless inspiration.  Safe travels!

    Your cabbage roses and flowery card blanks are my reliables when \I need a classy card in record time, they never let me down and the results are always fabulous. Looking forward to adding more to my Anna Griffin stock during your UK visit.

    Can’t wait for all the beautiful products we can purchase. It is sad when we see all the lovely goodies on HSN and we can’t order them in England. Travel safely Anna and thank you in advance for making the long trip to QVC. I am your Number 1 fan in the U.K.
    Last time I was in America I purchased some of you fabulous Camilla  fabric…I love pretty….especially pink nd pretty.

    Wow!  Do you ever stop!  I’m tired just trying to keep up with you.  Such wonderful products!  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every one of your products.  Never thought that I would get into card making but I truly enjoy it.  Everyone loves the cards that I have made them.  I can’t wait to be able to purchase more products.  I was truly caught up in how fast the Cricut Explores vanished when you debuted them.  Even my husband was amazed.  Can’t wait until you return in March.  Thanks for keeping us informed.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Beautiful flowers came for me today and I thought I would share them with you! I love Le Jardin Francais here in Atlanta. Marie Laurie’s style is so full of texture and grace. I like to think her arrangements are like our card making kits come to life!

Speaking of beautiful flowers…

The breathtaking flowers on the HSN set were from floral and event designer Gisselle Sanchez in St. Petersburg, Florida. You have to look at her website –  http://www.gissellesanchez.com. I love her too! I think I need to start a garden club…

Thank you to everyone who watched the launch of Cricut Expore on HSN this week. What an incredible event! For those of you who bought the machine, stay tuned because this is our year for Cricut. We started on the Explore project nine months ago and haven’t stopped yet. It was an honor and a privilege to be one of the first to work with and get to sell this amazing machine.

Go spread the love!
Anna

    Anna…The flowers are lovely. I too received roses, which us unusual for my family. They came from Michael Horne’s Florist in
    Wadesboro, NC.  Michael should be in a bigger city as his talent is exquisite.  But I hope he stays here.

    Mmmmm, I love flowers in my home, they add such a wonderfully fragrant freshness, like a smile from Mother Nather … and that is what these lovely flowers make me think of.  =)

    Congrats on the outstanding success of the HSN shows.  I watched every single airing (BTW, you were as pretty as always), but have to agree that I would have liked to have seen a little more of the machine in action.  Too bad some of the HSN hosts didn’t take a step back and allow you to really demo the machine.  It was wonderful to see all the incredible items made by you and your staff.  The party decorations were amazing, however, seeing more of the “how to” would have really been helpful.

    I’d like to share a call I received from my BFF the day after the HSN shows aired.  She called, so excited and out of breath and talking a mile a minute that it was hard to understand what she was saying.  Then it suddenly hit me, and I said … “Did you just say that your incredible husband ordered a Cricut Explore for you from HSN?”  Her reply was loud, but unmistakeable … YESSSS!  It will arrve in a few days, and I will be patient and give her a few days to play with it … but then we are getting together for a day of crafting.  So it looks like I will get to see this awesome machine in action after all (happy dance).  Congrats again, Anna, for the great HSN shows, you did a fabulous job.  Hope your Valentine’s Day was beautiful.

    Your work for the Explore is beautiful as always.  I really wanted one for that reason, but I wanted more of a demonstration of how it works before I committed to purchase.  You tried, but a few of those hostesses were unbearably chatty and silly.  A few times you did exert yourself to show us the screen.  Good for you!  You are too nice!

    I can’t wait to get my Explore. Although I was hoping to see more of the machine in action, I was still excited. I too missed out on the pens. Hope they bring them back soon.

    The machine looks awesome and I can’t wait to get it.     That said:  I agree with some folks that they should have demoed it much better.  Not nearly enough of the machine doing it’s thing.    Not sure it anyone is replying to any of these posts but….  does it come with any better instructions than past machines?  Or a dvd maybe?  And not like the ones already out there as they don’t do too much for actual operation.   And please tell me that the embossing stylus is for sale by itself?  I have been only able to see it in the new kit—which is sold out everywhere.  And why in heavens name would it not come with the machine??  I get it, they want to make ‘add-on’ money, but I already have a Cricut kit and don’t need a second one just for that.  Please tell me it will be at least for sale as a stand alone item?     Thanks, Cathy

    Hello, Anna love the flowers that you got for Valentines Day! I also watched the launch party on HSN! And i was lucky enough to pick up the new Explore machine with the auto ship. But I didn’t like that the scoring tool was not included and that they didn’t tell us that it was with the tool kits. I would have ordered it if i knew. They sold out by the next morning. But I’m so happy that we finally have some Anna Griffin images to play with. I can’t wait to be that mom, that makes all the party stuff. And my girls will have the best looking birthday parties ever~!! Thanks Anna for creating AWESOME stuff with PC.

     HI I watched your show on HSN and purchased a cricut machine. From what I was able to see and learn from you on the show I should be able to make cards. I want to be able to make cards with gates and other styles. I need to make so many (for senior’s in my apt building) cards. I only make birthday and Christmas cards. I am worried that you will not have the card kits (large ones) as I am are running low on Birthday cards. I hope that does not happen. I agree with the others the program hosts did talk tooooo much also cut in on what you were saying, did not like that. This is the first cricut for me and I wanted to get more information on it and was not able to. I am waiting for the cricut to come and learn what I can do with it. But I see I am going to need supplies I hope HSN stocks them soon. I enjoy your card kits very much and the people here love to receive your cards so much. They often tell me that they save all the cards I give them because they are soooo pretty.    Thank You so much.

    Happy Valentine’s day! Wow what a fast HSN cricut show. I was so glad I ordered when I did. I am so excited to see the delivery truck coming with my newest crafting tool. I was also blown away by the projects, beautiful set and flowers. If I was getting married I would be using that color palette. So fresh and happy. I just love the flower designs photos you posted above. I will have to host a Mother’s day brunch at our B and B with these colors. Stunning! Keep the great items coming.

    I took the plunge and ordered the Cricut Explorer…only because your name was attached!  It’s my first Cricut and I feel I have so much to learn. I would have liked a lot less host chit chat and way more Anna Griffin demonstration. Maybe next time there will be more content and learning opportunities for us newbees! Your flowers are positively beautiful!!!!
  12. Posted by: Judy N.
    Anna, I was lusting after the Cricut but couldn’t justify buying it because I just bought the Silhouette. Yours would have been so much better! How I wish you would have offered it sooner! Please keep in mind that many of us have to Tivo your show because we need to be out during your showings. I had so wanted to buy the “love” card kit that you featured in an earlier show but they were gone before I could watch the show. Is there any chance you may have more of them?
  13. Posted by: Leslie D.
    Happy Valentine’s Day.  Gorgeous flowers!  I, too, was one of the lucky ones that got in on ordering the Explore with autoship for February delivery.  I also lucked out in ordering the tool set.  This will be my first Cricut other than the Cuttlebug.  I’ve been showing my husband the various videos for the Explore and he can’t wait to try it out himself!  I can’t wait until the 27th to start playing!  Thank you for all your hard work on this launch!

    Love the flowers!!   Thanks for sharing.  Watched your show on HSN but not able to buy the explore this time.  Love watching you and your ideas, just wish the host would hush and let you talk.  After all you are Anna Griffin and they dooo not know what they are talking about.  Would love for you to have an hour “Anna Griffin” show on TV!!!  Sound like great idea to me!!!!  Thanks for everything!!
  15. Posted by: Pat S
    Anna,  What beautiful flowers!!  Thanks for sharing them with us.
    I to was one of the many people who watched HSN and was determined I was not going to weaken and purchase another Cricut (I already own several).  Well, all it took for me Anna was to see all the beautiful things you had made and your involvement with the Cricut Explore.  Needless to say,  I was one of the lucky ones who was able to get one with the Feburary delivery date with the auto ship program.  Later I lucked out and was able to get the tool set (someone must have cancelled their order).  I keep watching for the pens and blades.  I think Provo Craft was very smart to team up with you-I’m sure your name and products connected with them will hopefully bring back some of the customers that have left them (I for one have always been devoted to them).

    Thanks again for being so special and good to all of us.  We can all hardly wait to learn more about the Cricut Explore and everything else you have in store for us!!!

    Continued… Video. Wish it had been ivory and d gold … No don’t suggest it  I don’t need 4 cricuts! I wish the hosts had stifled their tee hee bs chatter and let you speak and demo the machine and explain we need accessories such as scoring blade and is there a pen set as well as a heavy blade etc etc…. Found out a bit more on the white papers on the pc site should be interesting… Live your products got rest if the stamp sets and card stock this time as well thank you Anna you rock girl !excuse typing errors I’m on my iPhone and failing eyesight typing ….

Even though I have 2 other cricuts I ordered the auto ship explore…will receive in April which will be fine since I have to learn how to use a new computer couldn’t afford a new iMac do got a stupid window laptop… I see why they are called pcs stands for pieces of s… However I digress… I wasn’t going to order but I’m hoping it will be as great ad it appears to be in the

    WOW beautiful flowers, your TV on HSN was so nice, but way to short.  I am one of the lucky ladies who got mine in the first 5 minutes of the show. But I was so excited that I got one that I did not order the extra blades !!! I did manage to get the pens and tools. I hope the blades will be offered on HSN or Cricut because I know I will need them.  Oh and I got auto ship as well.  I really wanted more demo from you and just to see all your beautiful things you made and I was wanting you to talk more on the rose wall.  Of course I want to make one !!  Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful talents with us.

    Beautiful flowers Anna, and Happy Belated Valentines Day. I have been hearing so much about the Cricut and my sister-girlfriend has had them for a few years.  I watched the launch of the Explore and decided to take the plunge and ordered my first Cricut, with the autoship.  This is my first venture into any kind of crafting whatsoever.  This weekend my S-GF is coming up and bringing her Expressions-2 and show me how to use the Cricut.  I have a feeling that this is going to turn into a huge addiction.  And from what I have read here, I won’t be alone.  I can’t wait for it to get here so I can get started.
    I am also looking forward to getting a Cuttlebug.  I watched the videos on it and know that this, too, will be mine in the not to distant future.  I think that I read somewhere on this site that you will be doing a show on HSN with the Cuttlebug in April.  Here’s hoping it will be a Today’s Special.

    Like the other posts, I so enjoy your products and could not wait for the Explore launch.  Just 30 minutes prior I was unable to stay awake (long, hard day).  so I finally went outside and let the cold air wake me up and so happy that I was able to do so.  I was able to be one of the lucky ones to get the Explore and eagerly awaiting its delivery this month.   So happy. I had many conversations with myself as to why I didn’t need a new Cricut because I have 2 but I just had to have it just few seconds into the presentation.  Beautiful.  I was fast enough to order the pens and tools but not able to get the extra blades.  Are they the same that are used on the expressions?  The only disappointment was that the Explore sold out so soon.  I was looking forward to more presentations with more info.  But congratulations for such a successful event.  I am so please and excited that you partnered with Cricut.  I love all you products.  Keep them coming Anna.  Thank you.

    I was one of the lucky ones and was able to get the new Explore!! This is Cricut #4 for me. Bought it because of your association and built in programs,(got the auto-ship).Would have liked to see more demos on how the machine works, and less “host” chatter. Can’t wait to get it. Thank you Anna,

As far as Watching the Launch, I Recorded to watch it on my Big Screen the next day But……..I told you I was going to hook up my Ear Buds to my iPhone and lulu the Cover Over My Head to watch it Live so Hubby wouldn’t wake up and ask me what I was Doing!!! (Shhhhhhh!!!! ordering my Explorer and everything that goes with it except for the Extra Blades, those fell out of my Basket I had and lost out on those, I waiting trying to figure out if they were for the New Machine and I missed out)!!

    Anna, I purchased the Explorer w/auto ship!  I tried hard to resist purchasing another Cricut but I could not resist your beautiful designs and the simplicity of the machine, I had to have it!

    Your flowers are beautiful; I received beautiful flowers also.  Hope the flowers will inspire you to make a floral Cricut cartridge.

    Thanks for sharing your talents/gifts with the world.

    It was gut wrenching watching and not being able to purchase this really cool machine.  I wish I would afford one of eveyrthing, but not possible.  I did get my valentines collection, auto ship, from the Christmas Auto ship.  The cards are beautiful and everyone loves them.  I hope you intend on making the designs for the Explore available in a purchasable plug in cartridge for the old Cricut machines.  I would love to have that collection.  It seems a shame to exlude those of us faithful fans who want the product but can’t afford another system at this time.  I am certain I am not alone in my hopes that you can make this happen.  Just loved the show.  Made me want it all the more.

    Dear Anna, what a great time on HSN!  I hadn’t planned on buying the Explorer, as I have had the Cricut Create and Expressions, BUT fell in love with it and your beautiful ideas.  My sister also bought it.  Have many ideas planned with friends that have little girls and one friend that is going to be a grandmother again – a baby shower coming up in April.  So much fun.  Also, through showing your beautiful cards, folders, die-cuts, etc.  five more people that I know have joined your Fan Club!  We all love you.  Happy Valentine’s Day to you also.  Sincerely,

    I can’t wait until I get my circuit explore.  I knew it had to be good because of you.  I have the expression but will have to sell it.  Have a wonderful Valentine’s day.

    The flowers are beautiful! My husband bought me the Explore for Valentine’s Day! We never exchange anything that costly, but he said he couldn’t resist when he saw me so excited about it. He’s awesome! I can’t wait to start cutting your designs! 🙂

    Hi Anna, I’m SO disappointed! I was at work giving a scrapbook class and completely missed the show on HSN. I wanted SO BAD to tune in to see what the new machine and all it’s glory was all about, anything new and exciting that I can learn from and share with my “students” and it was all over in a flash…any repeats? People that I’ve talked with are so excited to learn techniques and see what the new BUZZ is all about…and I missed it! Is there any site in which I can view the new Cricut machine, how it works and if any programs that come with it? Thank you!

    Hi Anna, I was so happy to see you on HSN selling the Cricut Explore. I wanted one, but can’t afford one right now and really don’t have a place to put one if I owned it! I do so love to use all of your flowers, etc. stickers for my greeting cards. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Anna, super great demo for Provo craft, you sold a ton of machines.  I didn’t buy because I have 2 and didn’t think I could afford another.  Today I told one of my two daughters what the explore would do and first thing out of her mouth, mom you should get it and we would split it 3 ways and use it when we come over for our scrap weekends.  Sure hope your designs are on it when it comes out again.  Your flowers are beautiful and so was that wall.  You should did a lot of work for the launch.  At the end of your show, your emotional tears brought me to tears also.  Love, Arleen

    Happy Valentine’s Day Anna. Thanks for sharing. I used to be a full time floral designer and my heartgoes out to all of them today. I am sharing the love with my precious Vietnam Veteran of 47 years. Almost finished with his favorite meal. I am blessed he was sent back home to me and blessed you are a part of my life now. Thank you Anna for all your and your staffs hard work. Betsy

    Anna, Happy Valentines Day!  What beautiful flowers!  I am not able to afford a new Cricut but I loved your presentations none the less! I was disappointed that you did not have any new embossing folders, especially after having called your company and having been told that you would have them! Oh well I love my Cuttlebug and hope you present more dies and embossing folders; I love all your card kits!  Thank you to your team as well for all their hard work!
