HSN March 24th Preview #2

Hi everyone!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I feel very lucky to show you four brand new items today, and I think you’ll agree they are better than a pot of gold…ha!

First is a card kit that will help you create 30 mini masterpieces in minutes. The Pretty Paintings Card Making Kit is filled with delicate hand painted card surfaces, layers, foil embellishments and so much more. The sentiment inserts for the inside of these cards was also thoughtfully designed to work with either a portrait or landscape card! You’re going to adore this kit.


For those of you who haven’t noticed, we are absolutely loving butterflies this year. Our new tote bags and stationery are adorned with them for spring, and now we have an entire set of dies devoted to them! The new Butterfly Cutting Dies feature five designs in a variety of sizes. There’s even a trellis die for your butterflies to land on. These are the first in a year long autoship program that you won’t want to miss signing up for on March 24th!


Next is a new set of Metallic Layers, which are always a favorite. Remember our most recent shades of 5″x7” colors? Now you’ll have a 5.5″x12” set that fits perfectly into our 12” embossing folders! This palette is perfect for every occasion, from subtle ivory to bright pink and green, and includes 48 sheets in 12 different hues.

Speaking of 12” folders, it’s about time for another set of those isn’t it? Introducing the 12” Lace Gatefold Embossing Folders for Cuttlebug! These six folder designs include score lines so that you can make gorgeous gatefold cards or invitations in seconds. Each one even has a coordinating seal to cut or punch out that can close your card or envelope- I love this little detail!

If you own a Cricut Explore, there are free cutting files in Design Space that coordinate with the Lace Gatefold folders! To find these files, search for “Anna Griffin” and scroll all the way to the bottom of our image library (they are in blue). You will need to size them to 12″ to fit the folders after dropping them into your project, or follow this link to a saved project we made that contains all of them pre-sized: https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/25991755

HSN March 24th Giveaway #1

Hi everyone!

We hope you were all able to tune in for HSN’s Cinderella event this week. The set was absolutely spectacular. HSN really out did themselves this time – even the flowers were real! I love this photo from the Secret Garden!

HSN March 24th Preview #1

Hi everyone!

It’s already time for another 24-Hour Craft Day! Can you believe it? Mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 24th at 12 a.m., 11 a.m., 4 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. EST. We are going to attempt to fit all of our new collections for this DIY extravaganza into two previews. Whew! Ready, set, go…

First let’s get organized before we show you everything crafty coming up on March 24th, because you’re going to need it once you see all of these new items. Introducing the Grace Black craft storage system!

We’ve taken this signature Anna Griffin pattern and given it a bold black background that will make such a statement in your home, office or craft room. You’ll be able to purchase regular and 12” embossing folder storage boxes, stamp storage binders and nesting card boxes.

Next, design beautiful arrangements in antique vases that will never wither away with the Flower Pot Decoupage Die Cuts.  This set includes 237 die cuts to assemble, with lots of unique botanicals and colors that are the perfect start to Spring (and boy are we ready for Spring!).  There are roses, tiger lilies, rhododendron, amaryllis, pansies and so many more. These are so pretty!

flowerpot8flowerpot3Speaking of pretty, there is nothing quite as lovely as foil-stamped paper, and now you can have an entire set! Our new Foil Card Layers include 96 sheets (64 5×7 and 32 6×6) in pretty pastel shades of pink, green, blue and lavender. You’ll recognize some of the foil frame designs from the Mix and Match embossing folder bundle offered on January 21st.foillayers5foillayers1foillayers6

Last for today are the Artful Patterns embossing folders. Do you remember the set of 24 embossing folders we had on HSN offered on October 7th, 2014 (12 every day and 12 holiday)? This is the set of 12 every day folders all by themselves! You’ll be able to emboss gorgeous feathers, butterflies, ornate tiles, vintage hydrangeas and more.


Many of you will be glad to hear that we are back to our Friday blog giveaways! If you’d like to win all four of these collections comment below and tell us your favorite.

Don’t forget to watch the HSN Cinderella event today at 1 p.m. EST and tomorrow at 7 p.m. EST!

We loved reading your comments this week about what you thought a “modern princess” was, because they were all so heartfelt and empowering.

So who’s castle are we delivering the Secret Garden Stationery Wardrobe and Grace travel accessories to?  Congratulations to the winner, Diane C.! I feel like your fairy godmother!
