HSN May 14th Sneak Peek 1

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s almost time for another visit to HSN? In just three short weeks we will have brand new items and amazing new projects to show you. Be sure to mark your calendars for May 14th at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST. Let’s get straight to the previews!

So many of you requested more masculine collections from us this year, and we delivered during our March shows with our For the Boys Die Cuts and Cards for Him Too Kit. However, we are missing two great elements – stamps and inks for him! The For the Boys Clear Stamps include 34 clear stamps that will be the perfect companion to these previous kits, featuring icons like fish, tools, motorcycles and more. There are also some really fantastic sentiments that can be used for a variety of occasions.

You’ll enjoy using these stamps with the brand new Set of 8 Masculine Inks! This rugged palette of green, blue, brown and red will works so well on cards, layouts, gift tags and more.

Last up this week are our new Well Said Vellum Quotes.  Inside you’ll find 144 clever quotes and greetings for all of the special people in your life. These are so great! I’ll even share a few of my favorites with you:

“A heart that loves is always young.”

“If you obey all the rules, you’ll miss all the fun.”

“You’re the icing on my cupcake.”

Do you want to win all three of these new items this week? Comment below and tell us what you love about them for your chance to win. We will draw a winner on Friday.

See you then!

    I am so excited to find out that you’re BACK on HSN in May, Anna. Somehow I missed that info but was checking your website a couple of days ago and saw it.  Can hardly wait!  I got the last shipment of cards (“For Him”) just a couple of weeks ago and have been busy with them—two male birthdays in as many weeks.  Am just beginning to get into stamping–bought your chalkboard stamp set, the birthday set and the anniversary stamp set, plus all the inks that have been available up to now.  Anything masculine to add to my stash would be much appreciated!  PLEASE draw my name!
    Know I’ve said it here before, but thanks once again for your beautiful designs.

    Outstanding! I shared your folders with a friend, and now you have another fan of your brilliant designs.We can’t wait to see all the new items in May. I would love to see some 6×12 paper to use in my cricut create. T2Ihanks for all the fantastic ideas and products!

    So excited for the masculine stamps – and to have the inks as well is just awesome!  Thank you Anna.

    Love all your products, but so happy that you have more “guy” stuff!  I am still trying to order some of the out of stock items from the last time you were on HSN!  You rock Anna!

    So excited to see more stuff for the guys.  I have been making cards for the guys in my life with the products that have come out so far.  The reactions have been beyond anything I anticipated!  They show them off and make sure everyone knows I made them especially for them.  Who says guys don’t appreciate cards made for them?

    I am so happy you are putting out manly stuff. It is hard to find the right stuff  for our guys and for sure the stamps. Are you going to be putting out stamps and dies that match someday? I hope so because I love love love your stamps and dies and to have them match would be out of this world like all of your other stuff . (that I have to buy) I have all of your inks and the re-inkers you have put out but there are some ink pads you have not made re-inkers for. HELP!

    HORRAY!   YAYAY!  More inks!  and man-stamps!  I cannot wait to see the sets!  And I TOTALLY need those vellum quotes.   This is the first time in my adult life I have ever considered NOT putting in a garden in the spring so I could have more time to papercraft!  ha!  Your ‘tools’ are SO much fun, Anna!

    It seems like everything you design is classy and beautiful, including your more masculine stuff (beautiful in a “manly” way, of course LOL).I can’t wait to watch you showcase these on HSN (and then do my best to control impulse buying…lol, yeah right).

    Anna, it’s about time someone thought of the special men in our lives.  To be able to celebrate them with a personalized card makes the messages we try to send to them even more special.  Thank you!  I can’t wait to see the other sentiments you will be offering with this set of vellum quotes.  Your quotes always provide me a starting point to express something personal to the person I am thinking of at the time of making my cards.  And I love the colors of these new stamps!  You are such an inspiration to new crafters like me!

    The male items are fantastic, especially the tools since there are many construction men in my life-not too much time for fishing. Your inks are a perfect addition- quality. I am always glad when you bring out your vellum quotes and sayings. Your team is much more talented at writing compared to my writer’s block. Thank you again.

    Two cards. Dumb phone.

    Oh Anna, this is beyond helpful in color palettes. I just received the “all about him” card kit and made to cards my own way and sent them out the same day! They were amazing and you made me want to make cards for them. It is so hard to tap into 15 guys in my family and try and create a card for them. I try and stick with their personality or hobbies. Many do not have hobbies and I have to go on personality and what colors. The card kit made my day and I said oh wow how come I could not think of that? Easy breezy card making and now stamps and inks to go with? What a dream! Thanks for helping is crafters out when it comes to men! They really do like these cards!

    You truly amaze me Anna!  I would love the chance to win these!  I guess I’ll need to make more space in my craft room or should I say my Anna Griffin room!

    Love the new items for the guys in our lives. The vellum sentiments really help finish off a card. Especially for those who don’t stamp! Can’t wait to see the rest:)

    Like everyone else I have my calendar marked for the 14th.  I am happy to see you have a set of vellum quotes. I have used all the ones I purchased so it looks like I’ll be using that credit card for sure!
    Thanks for making card kits and assessories so easy to combine together I haven’t had one problem mixing one kit with another.

    Oh, my goodness!  Those stamps would be wonderful….along with those stamp pads!  I love everything you make, Anna!
    Thank you for a chance to win!

    You just keep coming up with more great ideas, Anna! While I love all your florals, it seems like I have to make more male cards. Thanks so much for keeping the guy products coming! Love the stamps, and the stamp pads are a wonderful idea. Looking forward to the quotes, too – seems we can never have enough!
  19. Posted by: Carrie S
    Love, love, love all the sentiments.  Keep ’em coming!!!!  Can’t wait for the 14th!!!

    I like the masculine themed die cuts because they help to develop masculine cards and pages, that I usually struggle with.

  22. Posted by: Debbie Z

    Great new additions to the line! Looking forward to making these part of my collection.

    Hi Anna & Team,I always look forward to previewing all the new must-have AG items in your sneak peeks. The new masculine stamps, ink pads and meaningful vellum quotes would make any project look fabulous. Can’t wait to see them in action on May 14th. Thanks for creating such beautiful items and for being so generous!

  26. Posted by: Angela Jones-Smith
    I always need more guy themed images for card making. Thanks for making more.
  27. Posted by: Amy
    These would fill a gap in my card making supplies PERFECTLY!

    Love the new products. I have the last shipment of the card kits. I love the guy stuff. Want the new inks. I am replacing my old pads with all Anna inkpads. I really only buy Anna products anymore. Keep them coming. Hinting for pet  dog stuff too.

    I love Anna Griffin products and have for many years.  I am in need of more male products for my card making and am excited about the next HSN show.  Some how my “Cards For Him” auto delivery card set never arrived and currently there is no order number to re-order. I was looking forward to getting this card kit and hope it will be available for purchase soon.
  30. Posted by: Melissa
    The new masculine line is outstanding. I made three male oriented cards this weekend already using the card kit and the add on male embellishments.  Great for all ages. No more butterfly’s and birds for the guys. Now it’s hammers, fish and more.  Please keep the beautiful kits coming.  My craft room is overflowing with Anna Griffin products, but there is never a moment when I’m stumped for an idea.  My husband may have to move a few things out of the craft closet for me to move the new items in, but it’s time for spring cleaning anyway.  Thanks for all of the great products and ideas.

    You’re my favorite card designer. I do need more male items, so pick me please.

    They say just what I would love to say on my cards plus they make up into beautiful cards. That are just what I want & need.

    Hi Anna     My birthday is May 2 and  I am going to make my self a  window frame card.  Love the idea of vellum quotes.  love my cuttle bug dyes but my arm’s are getting a little sore.  See you on May 14  .

    I have several nephews and I am always wondering what to put on cards for them. The stamps would really be a help. You can never have enough quotes and sentiments.

    Not a single downside to this set! I have more guys in my life i.e.: Sons, Grandsons, Dads, Grandpa’s and of course my wonderful Husband.  Because of all of the testosterone in my life, your semi-recent products (that I continuously purchase) have saved my life. The ink pads will coordinate with all of your existing cards and embellishments (of course, it is what we have come to expect from you and, by the way, you always deliver….)

    I am so grateful you are continuing to generate more and more masculine items, as I said another time, I couldn’t send my poor Vet a thank you card with all the flowers and lace but now I can use the quality products I love to use for my cards that are going to Men.

    Thanks Anna, you did it again!

    Waiting on the 14th!!  Seems like it will never get here!  Love all the new products !  Men’s cards are always the hardest ones to make.
    I have trouble using the vellum quotes, but will try doing what you’ve done here.  I know you have much more to come!!  Can I come work for you?

    I haven’t watched HSN in years, but I’ll make an exception on May 14th! I love the metallic papers and the Boys line. I just found out I’m going to have a grandson in September! I’m so excited. Winning this contest would be the “icing on my cupcake!” Thanks!

  5. Genevieve says:

    Anna, you are the greatest !! I can’t wait till the 14th. Keep up the creative work. Your fans need you. I am sure you rest sometimes but I can’t figure out when that would be.

  6. Pam Ritter says:

    I livd the all boy stamp set and am looking forward to the Cricut cartridge that was mentioned

  7. Michelle K says:

    I love the masculine cards, and your beautiful inks! I am looking forward to seeing you on HSN on the 14th.

  8. Terri says:

    I’m a believer! Dear Anna, I only just discovered you on HSN, and I am in love with your EVERYTHING! I was a confirmed SU user for decades . . . but then I found you. I have ordered all of your Anniversary items (two each of the papers and stamps – I have friends, you know!), the machine and dies and folders, two scrapbook kits, lots of paper and embellishments, and . . . well, just about everything. I bought the Scan & Cut, but am considering trading for the new Cricut because it has your party content (very exciting!). What do I love about these new items? That’s an easy one! EVERYTHING! First, while I love the frilly of your content, there are guys in my life too, and my God Father is a TOOL NUT. I can’t wait to order these stamps and make his Father’s Day card. I have the Camilla vellum quotes – which I love – but the sayings shown above are even better. I’m really only worried about one thing: I think you may be habit forming. (Does the FDA know about you?) See you on the 14th at 10am and 3pm (PST)!

    So excited to have fresh new colors when I’m creating my cards and scrapbook pages for the men in my life! Love the new colors. Thanks for being so creative,
