Sunday’s Cricut Everywhere Contest

Hello there!

I’m at work preparing for HSN on Wednesday February 18th and I thought I would keep sharing places that inspire me to create.

biltmore ballroom

Wouldn’t this make a beautiful place for an Anna Griffin Crafting Event? It’s the ballroom at the Biltmore Hotel in Atlanta. Just one more place in Atlanta that I find inspiration! The pistachio green is so dreamy.

Ready for today’s Cricut Everywhere contest on Cricut’s Facebook page?

When you #CricutEverywhere you’ll need lots of goodies to craft on the go!

Answer the clue from @CricutEverywhere today for a chance to win an Anna Griffin duffle bag (a perfect fit for your Explore), rolling tote and iPad case!

Best of luck!

    I can’t wait till the show airs. Very excited. Would love to win something but I know everyone wants to win.

  2. Karen Martin says:

    Just visited your Instagram page! Loved the pictures of your travels, your creations, all the beautiful flowers (talk about inspiration!). My favorite pic is the one of you and Georgie entitled “When in doubt, hug the cat” <3

  3. Anna Griffin says:

    Linda – The number of explore machines sold to date far out weighs the number of bluetooth adapters sold. The adapter had to be bundled with the content for those who do not have it yet. We value all of our customers and have good business practices in place to take care of them.

  4. Paula says:

    I would like to rsvp for the Anna Griffin Craft Event at the Biltmore, date tbd …. lol … you know I’m in Anna …

  5. Linda Kempke says:

    My understanding is that if we recently purchased the Explore machine – WITH the bluetooth accessory – we will NOT be able to purchase the new cartridges/folders until around April. This is unfortunate and not necessary. It seems to disregard those of us with recent purchased machines with the bluetooth, Not a good business practice.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Thank you Anna for sharing these pictures with us. I can see where you such beautiful ideas from these beautiful places.Please keep up delighting us with your ideas .

  7. Lin M. says:

    Wow – this room is beautiful! I can see why you would be inspired there. And yes – it would make a perfect place for an Anna Griffin Crafting event. 🙂

  8. Karen Martin says:

    Wow, that is a beautiful room! Thanks for posting the picture. I just recently joined Pinterest and that picture would definitely go on my Anna Griffin Inspiration Board.

  9. Karen Martin says:

    I think Anna said yesterday or the day before, I don’t remember 🙂 ,that the content without the Bluetooth adapter, would be available in April. She didn’t say if there would be an auto-delivery choice. HTH.

  10. Rosie V. says:

    What a beautiful ballroom! It has your name written all over it! I live in California so I don’t know that I would ever be able to visit such loveliness so far away! But I can dream, right! Can’t wait to see you on HSN; I’m lucky; since I live in California, I get to watch you @ 9:00 PM Pacific time, yeah!

  11. HollyG says:

    Positively gorgeous! I see why you get inspired there! …and yes, the pistachio green IS dreamy!

    No wonder you create such lavish and beautiful items that drive me crazy as it also my style. I’ve also never been to Atlanta and would love to dine there–maybe someday! In the meantime I’ll also create the beautiful cards you make and making those who receive them happy. Actually I’d say that your business is in making others smile and feel loved upon receiving a handmade card. Lots of Love to you, your staff and family including George.
