  1. Juliann says:

    Well, I love the look of all the projects you can create with this new Cricut, but am very sorry I was not able to enter the giveaways- like others, these remote (facebook etc) contests are not compatible with my mind! Hope you go back to simpler giveaway entries. BTW- Kiss-Kiss to Georgie from little Ting-Ting!

  2. Denice says:

    Hi Anna,
    Just purchased the Explore Air. I can’t wait to get it but I’m a little intimidated. It would be wonderful if you could demonstrate how to set up the machine from the beginning. If that is possible. Thank you so much.

    TO: Anna Griffin AND Sue S…….
    YAY! YAY! YAY! I am so glad to hear that the new content will be available on CARTRIDGES in May! Just in time for my birthday. (I always buy myself a gift, so I get something I want! Tee-Hee!) I know the cartridges have now become “Old School” compared to new technology, but that is exactly WHY I like them! New technology comes and goes….FAST…. and I like to make sure that when I buy something I like, I will be able to use it for a long time! So, just in case the “cloud” floats away, I will still have my cartridges!!! THANK YOU!!!!
    Anna, Varsity was one of my favorite places to go when I lived in Clarkston, Ga. in 1973! I was 19 years old, and was AMAZED that they had a complete turnover of food every 24 hours! Next time you stop in, grab a “Dog-a-Walkin” for me!
    Thanks again, for making the new content available on cartridges! I have my alarm set for 11:45 tonight, in case I fall asleep! Love you lots…and can’t wait to see you work your magic with the new Cricut Explore Air! ……
    “Break a Leg”!…..Rhonda L.P.

  4. Sandy Kouba says:

    Hi Anna, hope the weather doesn’t have you trapped in Atlanta. Will be watching at midnight, cant wait. Couldn’t get in to enter the contest either. Still loving my Anna-versity Explore.

  5. Arleen Cappatocio says:

    Just read what “Sonya says” and it caused me to be concerned. I intended to purchase the Bluetooth package to go with my purple explore but she intimates that you have to be close to the explore or it won’t work. If Anna can’t get back to me (I’m sure she’s way too busy at this late hour) but one of you gals must know, I hope. How close do you have to be to the explore for the Bluetooth to work? Please help if you can before I order. Thanks very much.

  6. Jean Paul says:

    Hi Anna, I am not a fan of the way the new contests are being done. I am not on facebook and what you have to do to enter is confusing. Simplicity is the best and includes everyone. Sorry, too complicated.

  7. Brenda L says:

    I am looking forward to the presentations tonight and tomorrow. I hope I don’t blow my budget too much. 🙂

  8. Anna Griffin says:

    Linda- so glad to hear you are helping out with Sally’s charity! The Explore is a great size- it will fit easily on most any work surface. Thanks for watching!

  9. Suzi Costa says:

    Cricut Explore Bluetooth Adapter with Anna Griffin® Design Content
    This item is already sold out??!!??
    I recently purchased the Explore machine. I had already purchased an adapter-so that wasn’t an issue. Many of us are Anna Griffin groupies. I really would like access to Anna’s content. Any chance that’s a possibility? I would hope that Anna and Cricut would see that as a viable option since the above mentioned item was sold out even before the new machine and content have been released!!! They could still do the content ONLY as an auto-ship but without the adapter.

  10. Geraldine says:

    So excited! I just purchased the new Explore Air on presale at HSN. Anna, would you please post the steps on how to make the scrapbook page layout you showed in your February 14th post? It was so beautiful. Thank you.

  11. Janet Nelson says:

    Sorry Anna. I am not a fan of these new style giveaway contests. Too confusing and then frustrating.

  12. Donna Jacobs says:

    will I ever be able to purchase the collection of metal dies you had for your Anna versary? Some how I missed them and Really Would love to purchase them. I know they are offered in Europe, but I am not sure how to purchase them? Help,

  13. Martha Mothershed says:

    It’s not Thursday. The show will start at 11:59 am on Tuesday nite. Them at different times on Wednesday the 18.

  14. Kim W says:

    I love love your card kits and Cuttle Bug! I have become a huge fan of your embossing folders. I now need the Explore! Your the best Anna, and I look forward to watching on Thursday!

  15. Betsy Carty says:

    Hey Anna. Can’t imagine your getting sleep as excited as I am about tomorrow nite. I do hope you wil rest aa little bit anyway. Can hardly wait for your new tricks and treats! See you then. 🙂 Blessings. Betsy from NC

  16. Donna says:

    Sounds like it will be an exciting night and daytime on Wednesday and this Cricuteer will be watching the whole day through!! Now I really won’t mind that it will be below zero outside! I have something to look forward to!

  17. Karen A. says:

    I’m so anxious to see, hear and learn all about this new wireless cricut explore air.
    I’m passionate about crafting…especially card making.

  18. Mary R. Huff says:

    According to HSN, Anna will be on at Midnite-2:00a.m., 8:00 a.m., 11 a.m.-1:00 p.m., 5:00-7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.-midnite all EST times

  19. Judy says:

    At age 72, I am just beginning to be addicted to all things Anna has – I wish I were more than one person to keep up with all I want to learn and do.

  20. Marlene Wilson says:

    Would love to have the new Explore Airsnd have dreamed if having an I pad. Love all of your products and would be able to do so much more with the things I have! Thanks for all the wonderful ideas .

  21. Sharon Voge says:

    Would you please put the times that you will be on HSN. They don’t distinguish your time from the general crafting shows. Thanks so much !

  22. kathleen schriber says:

    what awesome games and prizes. i can’t stay long. am getting ready for the Q & A sesssion that starts in 45 min. so excited! hopeing to win the explore and ipad mini. i don’t have either of those. but good luck everyone!

  23. Cheryl Wells says:

    Would love the new machine, but will stick with my green Explore and Bluetooth adapter. It’s all so exciting and am anxious to see the new Design Space. Keep up all the great work you do for us.

  24. Vickie Hoffner says:

    Don’t have a cricut explore but it looks like it would be awesome. Love die cutting, but wish they would make more stamps to coordinate with the die cuts. I really love all of Anna’s creations–love all flowers and flourishes. I don’t have my own website but I am on FaceBook.

  25. Linda K. says:

    Hi Anna,
    Can’t wait to see you again. So looking forward to the new Explore; this might be the year I finally purchase one. Not sure where I would put if, but it doesn’t look too large. Making cards on behalf of FFF (Sally’s group) and very happy to be using the new paper lines purchased from HSN last time you were on air. Will need to purchase more of the Georgie line (kitty/puppy prints) as most of the cards I made were made with those themes. Have a good safe trip to HSN and home again. Take some breaks in between to catch your breath and rest (must be stressful, but you don’t show it and that comes from knowing what you are doing). So proud to be associated with you. Take care.

  26. Sonya says:

    I bought the purple explore a few months ago and bought the wireless adapter but you need to be near your computer. I’m disappointed that they are coming out with a new explore every few months. I would have waited for this one. Also I don’t do Facebook so can’t do the prizes. But I do love all things Anna and will watch.

  27. Bev says:

    Wednesday is almost here! I’d love to have the Explore Air but your prize today would really help me craft. I hope I never get over my addiction of crafting and it keeps me away from my snack pantry! My old Cricut Expression is getting tired so a new machine would be perfect.

  28. susan Weatherly says:

    I love the anticipation of Anna’s introduction of new products. This gets me so excited as a child waiting for Christmas.

  29. Kay Dell Whitlock says:

    So excited for Wednesday. Wish it could have been today…I have the day off. Hopefully I can catch most of your show on Wednesday.
    Happiness is AG products!

  30. Carol says:

    I don’t know what you are making, Anna, but with that beautiful fabric and all those pretty butterflies, I know it’s going to be something amazing.

    I’m really looking forward to your HSN shows on HSN … less than 2 days now, so the excitement is mounting!

  31. Patsy Braddy says:

    I can’t wait to see the show. I want some of the tools you use to make your beautiful cards. I have ordered so many of your card sets, but need the tools to make them come to life.

  32. Linda Chidster says:

    I’m NEW to Papercrafting etc. I don’t own a Cricut yet or and iPad either. This would be so Awesome to Win. Thanks for the Chance to WIN!!!
    Anna, You are a Kind & Generous Lady!!! <3

  33. Rosa says:

    i find inspiration when I’m making cards with Wounded Warriors after their service dog training class. I don’t have a photos because out of respect for their privacy of these men & women. I especially love when the men let their guards down for a bit. They inspire me because while I sit back at home and craft they are off protecting our country is many different ways. I get to do 3 things I love to do during these times, 1. I get to craft. 2. I get to give back to our military and 3. I get to see and play with doggies in training to be service dogs. Now you tell me if that doesn’t inspire you <3

  34. Pam Cole says:

    Oh Dear! I’ve bought so many Cricut machines (including the explore on your last show), that now I have 4. Looks like I’ll need a 5th! Looking forward to Wednesday. I’ll be watching, beginning at midnight.

  35. JAN says:

    Looking forward to seeing what the new Explore Air can do, and of course, always love to see what Anna is up to!

  36. Barbara says:

    I love my cricuts and can’t wait to go wireless! But why not in Anna gold? I love all my Anna cuttlebug dies and embossing supplies not to mention your cricut cartridges. Would love to win!

  37. Lin M. says:

    I’m guessing that is a little girls dress you are working on – but my first thought was an apron. I just got my first sewing machine for Christmas and was thinking of making an apron. Your fabric would make a beautiful one.
    Looking forward to the 18th!

  38. Debbie Lentz says:

    I don’t know if you were working with a little girl’s dress or a tablecloth, but it is so beautiful!!!

    Great job on everything! LOVE YOU!

  39. Deborah Alvarez says:

    If you are on in the Pacific Standard Time, HSN starts at 9:00 pm on Tuesday night, the East Coast is 3 hours ahead of us so it would be 12 midnight, Wednesday there with the TSV. Hope that helps.

  40. Anna Griffin says:

    Connie- Today you will enter by commenting on the questions Cricut posts on their Facebook page! There will be multiple chances to enter- I think they are posting new questions every couple of hours.

  41. Connie says:

    I cannot find anywhere to enter on the Facebook page! I have entered every site I could find and could not see anywhere to take the “Quiz”. Also, I have seen the dates Tues. Feb. 17 and Wed. Feb. 18 for your launch. Are you there both days?? I
    won’t get ANYTHING done this week! Oh well. We have to do what we have to do. Keep up the good work Anna.

  42. Kathy C says:

    I have both a cricut and a silhouette portrait – the print and cut feature that the portrait had really swayed me. Now that the explore has the print and cut (and MUCH easier way to do it)… other than my extensive content on both… no need for the portrait anymore. Just wish you would stop creating (said no one ever) so I would stop spending so much money (said my bank account) …;)

  43. myrna hartley says:

    You are so generous Anna, this is an awesome prize. I am trying to learn how to do Instagram so I have to get current.

    Go get them girls! I wish you all much luck.


  44. Judy Jones says:

    Since we are going to be downsizing and traveling full-time with our RV, a mini iPad would be just the right size to work with while we are on the road.

  45. Carol says:

    I ordered the bluetooth adapter for my current Explore off of HSN yesterday with the Autoship option to obtain more of your digital content but could certainly use an iPad to expand my crafting anywhere ability. I would love to see a video of you cutting the butterflies you are attaching to that skirt. It looks adorable. Thank you Anna and please keep the products coming.

  46. Shirley M says:

    Oh, Anna! This is such a great prize. I really need this mini and the new cricut! Love you for being so kind to your consumers!! Have a wonderful day on HSN.

  47. Kathleen says:

    Oh what fun!!! I am getting so excited. It would be so much fun to win the prize today to make cutting with the Explore even more exciting! It looks like you are working on a garment. I am REALLY interested in all of this to be revealed. Thanks so much for the chance to win the contest.

  48. BettyBoop says:

    Waiting with great anticipation for Wednesday’s show. I love all of your designs, papers & everything in between. Would love to win the mini ipad. Wishing good luck to everyone and happy shopping on Wednesday.

  49. Mary R. Huff says:

    I don’t need a cricut or social media to make me happy but I bet I’d like it if I could win one!! Thanks Anna for trying to make us all happy!

  50. Stormy Miller says:

    To be free as a bird and able to design and cut anywhere is beyond belief. i will finally be able to get out of the back room where my desk is and cut where I want to. Thank you ANNA. You really do know what a girl wants!

  51. Shellie Fontana says:

    If Explore had its own theme song, it would ‘You Are So Beautiful (To Me)~
    I am one of those who always enjoys sitting down with a pair of scissors, ruler, pencil, & adhesive; but, I’d like to be able to create more with Cricut’s Explore. Last summer, I took an Explore class at local papercraft-shop, and it would benefit me to take another. It is so inspiring to watch you demonstrate on HSN, and especially on your blog-tutorials, Anna. I’ve always appreciated how you share and teach. I understand why you have said ‘beautiful in the making’ when introducing your innovative products. Thanks, as always!

  52. Melissa Becht says:

    I would love to win something but this new stuff is not for me. People have a hard time believing this but there are still “dead zones” in this country. The only Internet available is from satellite for $70 a month. Not going there! So good luck to someone.

  53. Gloria Westerman says:

    Cant wait till then..also I haven’t been able to log into the FB site…so please help on that…it just show up blank…thanks…
    I have an android pad so I really need to win the IPad just so I can play on my Cricut…..that would be so cool…thanks …

  54. Dianne McDonald says:

    I agree with Dyan. I want to see the Cream and Gold Explore. You have done so much to send the message about Cricut and how great it is. They should give you your own special one.

    I have one from last year’s launch but I would buy another one if it was an Anna Special!

  55. J Meisen says:

    As much as I love paper crafting, I love seeing the non-paper capabilities as well.

    I am a diecutting person, and have resisted the temptation of an electronic version that you use the computer with. But this wireless version just may tip the scales for me, looking forward to the 18th!
