HSN May 11th Preview #4

Hi everyone!

Today’s preview video is going to be slightly different, because I’m coming to you live from Venice, Italy! I’ve had the pleasure of being here for the past few days and it’s like a dream. Talk about never ending inspiration… wow! We have three new products to show you today, so let’s get to it.

First is a set of 6”x6” Perfect Palette Cards and Layers. This was a request from all of you that love our other Perfect Palette collections! Inside you’ll find 48 6”x6” card bases, 48 5.5” square card layers and 48 envelopes in our signature colors. It’s one of those essentials that you’ll want more than one of!


The new 6×6 Perfect Palette was created to coordinate with our latest set of 12” embossing folders called Grand Duets. These folders will give you double the money for your embossed projects and help you make them in half the time! Each folder features two 5.5” square designs, allowing you to emboss two pieces of paper at once. They are available now on hsn.com, and some of you already told us on Facebook that you have them on the way: http://bit.ly/grandduets

Remember we told you about our partnership with American Crafts? Well the first exciting product from that partnership is an Anna Griffin Heat Pen!  This tool comes in our signature ivory and gold color palette to coordinate with your Cuttlebug, and will allow you to transfer hand drawn foil and glitter designs to your projects. You can see below how we used it to highlight the features of an embellishment. So much fun!



That’s all for today. All we have left to preview now is the Today’s Special, which many of you have already guessed. We can’t get anything past our Griffinites… Check back next Tuesday for your first look at the Anna Griffin 6” Minc machine!

Ciao for now!

P.S. We also just heard that the Butterfly Dies with Autoship are back on hsn.com (http://bit.ly/1KnYH3R). All is right in the crafting world again- ha!

In other exciting news, next week we’re filming another video series with projects made with our new May 11th items! One of the cards you’ll see was inspired by the technique in this scrapbook page. Are you enjoying these videos? We sure hope so!
