  1. Sharon Patience says:

    I have the expression and cannot wait for the Air to come to the UK. I’m so excited. I would love to work with this machine. it really looks amazing.

  2. Judy says:

    Just love all of the new stuff that can be made. Makes the imagination go wild. Now I guess I’ll have to save some money to buy the Explore. I have the Silhouette Cameo but I’ll have to get my hands on the Explore as I like your designs. All the flourishes make me flourish! Keep it up!!!

  3. Andrea says:

    Anna, your designs are beautiful ad I am trying to use them as often as I can. Everyone looks forward to receiving them.

  4. Judy says:

    Anna, I am having a great time with the POP up card kit!!! I was wondering if you ever thought of making refills for the flowers and other embellishments? I have the 3D Botanicals flowers and butterflies, but love the colors in the pop up collection. Would also love to see some purple flowers!
    Thanks for all of your great products!

  5. Grama Pei says:

    Monique, you might call HSN to let them know of your problem, first, if you plan to return them, so you will get your money credited. They can let you know if you need to call Cricut, too. Lefty Lou gave you that number- They are both great companies to do business with. If its the Mix-and-match folders, and you are having trouble with them and want help with that, (or help with using any of them or if one is broken or a piece missing, etc,) go straight to Lefty Lou’s reply and call Cricut! Once you get past the waiting for a rep, they are just the nicest folk ever! I had one wrong insert for my Mix and Match folder set, and they sent me a new replacement totally free of charge. HSN= 877-933-2887

  6. Ruth Trehuba says:

    Hi Anna:
    I am going to try and replicate your beautiful layout since I have that cartridge/s!!! I have a question for you… do you pick the winners of these contests?

  7. Marion Titsworth says:

    I thought Anna was joking when she said you’d want to emboss everything but she’s right–I am now embossing paint samples from the paint department at Walmart! They
    came out great!!!! LOL at myself.

  8. Holly Hatch says:

    Still trying to learn how to use the Cricut Design Space…LOL But winning a whole year would be WONDERFUL. Love EVERYTHING you make and have for about 20 years now. I’m so glad you partnered up with Cricut. Love their machines and all the beautiful things your cartridges make. THANKS, Anna, for sharing with us your creativity.

  9. Melody says:

    I love all your beautiful projects. Your papers and cutting dies are easy to use and make all my cards beautiful.

  10. Deborah Harden says:

    I am hoping to supplement my SS with selling hand made cards. Getting your subscription would guarantee them beautifully!

  11. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Anna,
    Well, here’s an unconventional Valentine’s Day exchange for you: my husband Charlie got me some big old crab legs(my favorite) and he got a beautiful handmade Anna card! We are a pair! Thanks for keeping those gorgeous embossing folders coming! Happy belated Valentine’s Day! Love to you and Georgie(and now…Joe!) Lefty Lou

  12. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Monique,
    For any Cricut issues, call 1-877-7CRICUT
    Then push #6, then #4. There may be long hold times once in a while, but the people at Provocraft are amazing. They will help you!!!!They have solved problems for me several times and were outstanding!
    Sincerely, Lefty Lou

  13. Carol says:

    Happy Valentine’s Day Anna … I hope it was an incredibly beautiful day for you. I know that glancing at the stunning floral arrangement from your Honey, must have kept you smiling all day. It makes me smile just to see the photo of it.

    Anxious to see you on the 18th on HSN. I know you will be showing some of your products, as well as the new Explore Air. I was wondering if you would also be showing some of the features in Design Space? Knowing that it is super user friendly would sure be helpful.

  14. Sue Lutz says:

    W O W. Love the page with the picture on it AND the page without the pix! One is soft, sweet colors and the other intense and showy. Thx.

  15. Monique Pittman says:

    I have a problem with an item I purchased thru HSN, (your embossing cards).
    Please let me know the proper channels to get this resolved?
    Monique ( one of your faithful followers)

  16. HollyG says:

    Hello Miss Anna!

    Wow! A gorgeous arrangement for a beautiful and talented girl! Perfect!

    I hope you aren’t reading this right now! I hope you are on a fantastic Valentine date with your honey…

    You know me, but I’ll say it anyway…I am LOVING all the new and exciting ideas coming our way! Thank you so very much!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you & your team!

  17. Sally Young says:

    Anna: Have many of your lovely kits. I have a question I am a senior citizen I have 2 cricut machines, would love the new one but being on a fixed income it is tough. Is there a chance that cricut might have a trade in for the machines. It would be wonderful for me. I don’t win prizes. but please add me in with the rest of the crafty ladies. Keep up the good work. Thanks

  18. Deirdre says:

    Qustion: You have some great items on QVC UK.
    I especially like the Garden window cardmaking kit. When will this item and others be on HSN US?

  19. Cheryl says:

    I bought your new embossing dies. What size did you use and where can I get some? I use your card kits all the time. Everyone said that they put them in a special box.

  20. Linda Valoy says:

    Anna you say social media is so much fun. But that’s what I am afraid of. Afraid I will become so attached to my computer or phone that I want have time to make cards. That would not be fun to go out and buy ready made cards. Not a member of facebook but do go there at times to read the public blog of Anna Griffin Inc. Think I’ll go there now to see who won. Will see you wed. on HSN.

  21. Pam says:

    Thank you, Barbara. I guess my confusion was because it was tied in w/ registering the machine and not just a code to enter at design space or something. I was afraid someone else wouldn’t be able to use the machine in the future unless they registered it, and if they registered it that it might remove it from my acct. Thanks for helping clear it up for me further.

  22. Jeorgette says:

    True, Linda, but the prize for the Facebook contest is not nearly as exciting or worth as much as the Instagram one.

  23. Jonie Isenberg says:

    I forgot to mention I am your ANSON COUNTY SUPER FAN!!! We’re getting ready for snow so maybe my heart will heal enough for me to make a few cards.

  24. Jonie Isenberg says:

    Happy Valentine’s Day Miss Anna, your honey, and your staff. Hope your day was as special as you all are. I have done only a few cards this week, as my little brother died last week. I can’t put my heart into my cards as it is broken. I do wish all of you the best of holidays!!!

  25. Jo-Anne Terranella says:

    Anna Honey, I am so very HAPPY you have a HONEY. I have had mine for 56years now and often kid about getting out for good time served. Often wonder if when the packages from HSN arrive if there will be another year. Remember he only has room on the bed to sleep when I move my beautiful Anna products. Wonder what he would do if I won a large machine? Hmmm! Keep your secret love to yourself. See how men disappear from famous strong women when they are exposed to the world. Just a Gramma Advise to someone she LOVES.

  26. Juanita McStraw says:

    Happy Valentine’s day everyone!!! Especially you, Anna the queen of our hearts, your honey has great taste. I would love to win any/all of your latest designs and new techniques. Good luck to everyone.
    The 18th can’t get here soon enough.

  27. Donna Lee says:

    Hi Anna! Those flowers are stunning! It reminds me of my wedding bouquet!
    Thanks so very much for the chance to win such fabulous prizes. I think my favorite project has been making Valentine’s with the Lovely Impressions folders and dies. They were well received!

  28. Jeri says:

    I am not an instagram user and con’t have the mobile type devises to enter the contest! But I’m a huge Griffinite!

  29. Donna Lee says:

    What is this? you mean I can cut that out? For free, since I aready own the cartridge? My word, I better get the Explore out of the box and start cutting!!!

  30. Jill Pearson says:

    Absolutely beautiful flower arrangement. Please do a blog about your “honey.” We would all like to hear about him.

  31. Barbara Carlson says:

    I don’t believe the content is on your machine. It is on your Design Space Account which is why you have to have internet to use the machine. Therefore if you sold the machine, the content would still be yours as it is tied to your account not your machine.
    The buyer would have to have their Design Space account and link/purchase their own content.

  32. Irma says:

    Anna love all the new cartridges would love to have them everything is beautiful . Would have loved to win the new explorer not for myself but for my daughter ,when she devorced her her husband he threw her cricut and crafting out she has not been able to replace. At any rate Happy Valentines day. Good luck to all.

  33. Dalyce Mangum says:

    Hi Anna,

    I am so glad to hear you have someone special in your life. I have wondered. My husband and I have been married for 41 years in April. He is my best friend. Even after 41years and 12 children we feel at times like we are still newly weds. I pray for that happiness and love for those I love, so I am really glad to hear you have someone too.

    I just spent the last week in Savannah. I was only 4hours away from Atlanta. I wanted, so much, to come over and meet you and everyone in your office. But I couldn’t. I felt so close, and yet so far!!!!!

    I’m back in Richmond and we went to the old Maymount estate, built in the late 1800s. Very Victorian. I could see Anna Griffin all the way through the house. They even had a big bow, over a fire place, made out of pure gold, that looks just like a wood stamp I have of yours.
    It made me excited to get home and open up my HSN order. 10 more days.

    I look forward to next Wednesday. It’s always such a wonderful day when it’s an Anna Griffin day. Whether it’s watching or creating!!!!!

    Have a great day Anna.


  34. Sharon says:

    Would love to win. I have never won anything in my life and I am a senior citizen! Love all your products, working on arranging my craft room, so I can enjoy your products more. Please let me win! Keep up the good work. I own so many of your beautiful products.

  35. Pam says:

    So if the machine is passed on, what happens? Would the person have to register the machine in their name in order to use it? Would that then link your content to their account? Would it eliminate it from my account? Sorry for so many questions, just trying to figure this out. I know some have and use multiple machines at the same time, but I just don’t have the space for that and figured someone else may appreciate using it in the future. Thanks

  36. Anna Griffin says:

    Pam, The content will always be yours once you have purchased it. The Cricut Design Space software is like your email, no matter what device you use it on, the information is always there when you log in. Your account is your access to everything you buy digitally. If your machine comes with my content, it will be linked to our account once you register the machine.

  37. Barbara L says:

    Hi Anna, Beautiful flowers — they give off so much love and beauty it’s hard to say no them! I am so afraid of the Cricut Explore.. I bought one a long time ago from HSN and consequently returned it because I couldn’t make it work. I may not have done things right so I’m thinking I will need to attend some sort of class on this and learn the tips and tricks of it… thanks for all your wonderful products … still waiting for the Garden Window Card Kit to come back.. (came too late in the game/show) as well as the gold flourish stickers that went out of stock and then poof! and went off the grid in HSN … Happy Love Day!

  38. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Karen,
    Very interesting. Perhaps you know how much I adore Anna, and your mind and I just hit it off!….. Lefty Lou

  39. Terry Weatherford says:

    Beautiful flowers, I was wondering if you was married. You fan know nothing about your life. The only thing I know is you have an adorable cat named Georgie. Just wondering.

  40. Betty Jackson says:

    Hi Anna, I own so many of your beautiful card kits, embossing folders, dies and love & cherish each one. Your flowers from Joe are beautiful and I am so glad you have someone special in your life. I hope you will do a tribute to him on one of your shows, it would be fun to meet the special guy in your life.
    Happy Valentine’s Anna <3

  41. Pam says:

    Could you please answer a question for me? Your content is included with the purchase of the Explore Air, but I was wondering what happens in the future if the Explore is replaced (either because it breaks or because it is updated with another model). Would we lose your content? If I decide to purchase a newer version and give the older version to someone else, would they have access to your content that came with the machine? Appreciate all that you do and taking the time to answer questions too.

  42. Anna Griffin says:

    E. Hoyt – are you on Semester at Sea as a life long learner? If so, have you met John and Mary Ann Duffey?

  43. Christa C. says:

    Thank you for these contests, it’s so much fun to look at all the entries, it inspires me to want to craft more.

  44. Marlene says:

    Hi. Love all your beautiful products. Hoping cricut explore is in my hobby addiction this summer or I can win
    Thanks marlene

  45. E. Hoyt says:

    Anna, I am on a cruise around the world and missing all my Anna Griffin products. We have many days at sea where it would be fun to be creative. Cannot not wait to get home in May, to see what I have ordered while I have been gone. Thanks Anna

  46. SusanJoe Couturier says:

    Each new product makes me soooooooooo excited. I love making cards for all occasion. Using the embossing folders and die cuts makes my cards extra special. Can’t wait to do the new pop-up cards.

  47. Sue K says:

    I do cards no scrapbooks anymore. All I send cards to love all of them even from the simple one to the fancy ones for the holidays. I love the pop up new card box but they need extra postage but for special friends they are worth it! Thanks for all they things you make for us they are all wonderful! I found a box of cuts from way back I have started to include them in my cards too!
    Can’t wait to see what Design Space will do now, excited!!

  48. Jean Heming says:

    the place above where you go to download a picture will not let me put in my email or name of project …..I think the picture went in, but it disappeared an I cant fill in anything else, It is a picture of my hand holding a vase of your flowers…help

  49. Margaret says:

    I love all of your paper and cartridges. I make cards for missionaries and 3 of my pastors. Plus also for a program called Hunters Hope. It’s for children that are born with a rare blood disease. So the cartridges help me stay on track, much faster.

  50. Angela G says:

    What a beautiful layout, Anna! Thanks for the link for the file. I have loved all of your products since I started Scrapbooking. When I first started teaching at a LSS here in TX about 15 years ago, one of the first displays I saw was yours and I couldn’t take my eyes off of all the pretty & elegant papers and embellishments. I still have a few items from back then – you know those precious pieces you just can’t bring yourself to cut or use, lol. And when I got into my Cricut phase little did I know back then that I’d STILL be using AG with it! But as much as I LOVE my Explore, there are times that I still like to fussy cut your paper and work with it with my hands.
    Thank you (and I hope I don’t miss you at our next Mania in ATL!)

  51. Mary Helen Harros says:

    I use your beautiful embossing folders. Your Christmas wreath was my simple card this year. I use your box of Christmas cards to hand deliver, but try to do a simpler card to mail. The pink shimmer card stock rubbed with silver ink to highlight the embossing got many compliments!!

  52. Jane Reyling says:

    Love these new Cricut cartridges! Oh the possibilities are endless! Thank you for all of the beautiful and elegant designs!

  53. Vicki Gast says:

    Beautiful flowers! It is so nice that your husband understands your taste in flowers instead of traditional roses. Roses are beautiful, but these seem to reflect you.

  54. Bonnie Ambrose says:

    Anna, your mind is just amazing. I would love to have the vision to design something and have it turn out so beautiful! It would take me forever to figure out what paper to use, let alone which designs. I definitely have to keep this for inspiration.

    Joe did a wonderful job with the flower arrangement, too! (He didn’t make it, but had to let them know what he wanted).

    Sorry to say I haven’t made anything this year. We adopted two black kittens in December and I have been having a ball with them!

    Thanks for all you and your staff do.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  55. Bev Limbach says:

    I love all of your products, Anna, as if you did not know. My craft room has Anna all over it. Can’t wait til Wednesday so I can order some more of my addiction–Anna style.

  56. Karen Martin says:

    What beautiful flowers – love all the color and texture. Does George ever try to eat the flowers? My cats do so I have to be careful what I bring into the house 🙂 Apparently “Anna Grffin, Inc.” was much on my mind last night as I dreamed that I met Lefty Lou! Not quite sure what to make of that! 😀 Happy Valentines Day to you and your entire crew and all the Griffinites out there. Even though I do not have a Valentine, I love “love” and all that it brings, means and encompasses! <3 <3 <3

  57. arlene ranaldi says:

    I just keep wondering how could it get any better!!!!!!! I can’t wait for Wed.! I will be there every minute. Want those 3 image sets!!…and everything else. Just love you!!!!

  58. Mary R. Huff says:

    Anna, In all honesty if I have problems w/my PC how can I get a cricut to run so I won’t be entering this contest. Don’t worry about it, just keep being your beautiful self and making those card kits. By the way, I loved your photo with the Swan House so I had to look it up on Wikepedia. As far as Valentines, my neighbors have been bringing me goodies to keep me busy since my sweetie died 10.5 years ago so no more flowers. Keep warm everyone, 13 above in lower Michigan!

  59. Bette Sines says:

    I have been enjoying all your wonderful card and Scrapbooking products for years. My scrapbook with all my 10 grandkids featured are so beautiful, thanks to you,Anna. Thank you for such quality products. To make what we do look so professional. Each time you come on HSN…I can’t sleep very much a few nights before each showing, because I am so excited!

  60. Gracia Lanza says:

    No doubt my dear Anna where you get the Inspiration from with these beautiful flowers! My favorite project from last year is the same as you, Elegant Embellishments, I just love those flowers! Though my favorite project ever is my wedding invitations, using one of your brass stencils! Love love love!

  61. Doug G. says:

    Your Valentine floral arrangement is STUNNING !!! Like you created it yourself as it could be from your palette of AG color favorites!! Sorry for the negative comment yesterday on the Instagram contest but I am back to feeling the AG love again as I could enter the Facebook contest today!!!

    It is very cold and snowy in Ohio and all the great project pictures being posted makes being stuck inside bearable. Loving your favorite digital content that we could possibly win !!

    Happy Valentine’s Day and Great Crafting Wishes to Everyone !!! XOXO

  62. Victoria says:

    Hi Anna, You are the one that inspired me to create years ago. I have your first books, and almost all of your designs, in Cridcut Carts, Embossing Plates and Embossing folders..Your a truley amazing woman with so much talent…I LOVE everything you design. I think I said that Anyway, Happy Valentines Day…I am so glad you have a sweetheart that sends you beautiful flowers..My hsb gives me a gift card to the Garden Stores so I can put a perinneal sp? (sorrry) in my Garden so it will last and I know each one came with love…My kids do the same thing..Between gardening and crafting, my family, my friends, and animals, I am a very blessed woman…HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, Ms. Anna! can’t wait till the 18th…

  63. Joan LoBrutto says:

    Anna, I love the flowers you choose as your favorite item, it made a beautiful page. For those of us who don’t know how to put pictures on Facebook or anywhere else I would like to wish all of you good luck. Who ever wins is going to be able to make some very beautiful items. So again good luck to everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day.

  64. Anna Griffin says:

    Sharon – You are very kind! I should do a post about Joe. That would be fun, right? On the 18th the content comes with the Bluetooth adapter. We were worried that not enough Explore owners had it. The 3 Image sets will be available separately in Design Space (digitally) some time in April. We plan to offer it as a 3 cartridge set in May on HSN.

  65. Sharon Vrenna says:

    Anna – I’ve often wondered if you were married or had a love in your life. Now we know you have someone special that sends you beautiful flowers! Love to hear that!!

    I’ve made the calendar pages on the Explore and put them on an easel for a gift for the hostess at a dinner party. She absolutely loved it!

    Loving the Explore – my question is this – you said one could buy the content if they already owned the Explore with the adapter BUT – I bought the adapter when I ordered my Explore from HSN the last time you were on for your Anna-versery. Can we just buy the content without the adapter? Love your beautiful things you offer.

  66. Cheryl Wells says:

    Forgot to say Happy Valentines Day with all your beautiful flowers – My wonderful Sweetie passed away in 2005, so I don’t get pretty flowers anymore – Love as much as you can, while you can.

  67. Martha Mothershed says:

    It would be the first thing that it’s worth in the last two and a half years. One simple back surgery in my back has left me where I can hardly use my legs, has to use a walker or the wheel chair. I did cards with the things I bought in Jan. 21. I love my stuff!!!

  68. Betsy Carty says:

    Hey Anna. Happy Valentine’s Day! Your flowers are beautiful. I used to be a floral designer so I know how hard they are working today and my heart goes out to them. My heartfelt thanks for all you share with us. I love your favorites too. Will look up one for the contest. It’s not all about winning, it’s also about the excitement. Have a great day. Blessings, Betsy fron NC

  69. Heidi C says:

    Lovely Anna. I feel bad for people who have to attack others through websites.
    Such a shame. I am here to read the new blog contest or not I’m interested in All the items you show and present to us. Have a great show Anna

  70. laura says:

    You know Anna I am from Michigan and I’m in Arizona vacationing with my sister. We have gone to the spa and had mani’s and pedi’s. It is 80 degrees here and -30 wind chill in Michigan. Sounds like heaven doesn’t it? But I can’t sleep because you will be on with new products on the 18th and I’m too excited!!! That’s how much I love what you do. Sleep is over rated anyways. See you on the 18th!

  71. Sheila R. says:

    I’m going to make this page for a friend who is turning 98 tomorrow. I have the perfect picture for it.

  72. TeranceH in Texas says:

    I am excited about your new images, i an so getting into cutting images from your Anna pattern papers, makes such a different, than just plain, love your idea.

  73. Melissa Becht says:

    I definitely would love to win! Never won anything in my whole life. Has to be a first time somewhere!
