Hi everyone!

I’ve been in Utah this week with our friends at Cricut planning for an entire year of new products. I think you’ll be very pleased with what we have in store…

Today we are giving away the Borders and Corners Stamps and Inks, Nifty Nested Layers and the Playful Pieces Card Making Kit. Congratulations to Martha Casey – you are the big winner!! Yay!

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!

  18. Maria-Grazia Celle says:

    Hi Anna!
    Your product line gets better with every new release.
    I am one of those fans that collects all of your cartridges! I love ALL of them. Even though they may be released digitally I like having the actual cartridges. They are perpetual gifts that keep on giving. I don’t always bring my Explore to all my crops so having your cartridges allows me to always have “You” with me
    The new pallet of papers are beautiful. One never has enough Anna Gtiffin paper.
    You make creativity fun and beautiful.
    Thank you Anna.

  19. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Pat and Shelia,
    Just like Anna, her followers are the best! Thank you so much for the good wishes! Lefty Lou

  20. Cheryl B. says:

    I love anything by Anna..I was recently forced to retire..I now use Anna’s beautiful items to make cards, banners, scrapbooks to give for that personal gift rather that have to buy. Any of these products would be a great asset to have. My items I make just turn out so beautiful thanks to Anna! May 11th won’t get soon enough.

  21. Carole Mitchell says:

    I love my Cricut… I have never been creative nor artistic so I didn’t give myself much credit for doing anything with this. I surprised myself when my cards turned out as beautiful as your pictures. I am thrilled with the Explore and will be ever so grateful for the opportunity to create beautiful cards.

  22. Patricia Coddington says:

    Arrgg, I can’t just pick one thing. It looks like I love everything as usual! I know I’m not the only one that turns into a pirate when ye be askin’ us to Pick!!! Am I right ladies? Lol

  23. Nina Walls says:

    I started out scrapbooking, but found that my true love was making cards. The new cartridges and paper would be perfect. My grandkids are getting interested in making cards also, they’re never to young to learn to craft.

  24. SheliaP. says:

    Hey Lefty Lou!
    Wishing you well. I’ve had one hip replacement & need the other one done. Sure will be thinking of you Tuesday. Take good care. (The one replaced is great!)

  25. Anna says:

    ooooh how exciting I have a guess about the foils . could it be a foiling machine of some sort????? If not that would be something I would really be interested in I do have several digital Anna Griffin Cartridges can’t wait for the new three coming once again looks like the Anna Griffin team has outdone themselves.. your designs just keep getting better and better love them all

  26. Pat Marsh says:

    Good Morning, Anna!
    I will call your office and I do appreciate and thank you for your kind actions. Enjoy your day!

  27. Pat Marsh says:

    Hi Lefty Lou, My hair stylist just had hip surgery and I am so glad she’s back – I did miss her. I hope your hip surgery is also successful and I wish you good luck and will say a prayer for you!

  28. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Anna,
    I will be having my hip surgery about the exact time of next week’s preview. Thank you for leaving them up long enough so we can always catch up. I will be drifting off thinking about what new wonderful ideas you will share with us. I look forward to seeing what I will have to wait a few days to see. I NEVER miss your previews. Oh well, need to be able to walk, so I guess I must wait a little longer for my newest beauty from your creative mind. My new Anna bedcover when I am getting well will help. Thanks, and of course, love to you and Georgie, Lefty Lou

  29. Kim says:

    Hi Anna, I gotta ask you is there any chance you will ever introduce to us here in the US the items you have selling on QVC in the UK?? I guess I just can’t get enough Anna! You rock Anna keep up the great work!

  30. Kathi Sanders says:

    I have recently retired and although I have consistently purchased your products over the years, especially the card kits for every occasion, I have never had time to do stamping so I’m looking forward to adding that to my craft skills. Also love the idea of kids cards since I now have young granddaughters! Thanks for all you do and would love to win your kits!


    You are giving away my favorite new product – border and corner stamps. You previewed them last week or the week before (Can’t remember which). I can’t wait for the 11th. Why can’t we order some ot these items in advance? I know some of what I will order from your previews and if I could order them early, I would not worry about losing out. Just a thought. love you and your team – what talented people you are!!!

  32. Anna Griffin says:

    Hi Holly! I just went from the car to the airplane – as fast as my feet would carry me. I learned my lesson to always travel with a coat to SLC from now on!

  33. Robin Cottrell says:

    Anna, The Borders and the kits makes it so easy to put cards together. With your beautiful cards borders and the kits takes my creativity to another level. Thanks Anna and Your Team for all your hard work.

  34. Nellie Rose says:

    Oh, this just keep getting better and better, can’t wait till May 11th! Thanks for all the wonderful products you create for us, Hugs

  35. Karen says:

    You are so amazing with all your kits, papers and stamps. I have written 4 itms down already that I really would like. Love putting the card kits together. Have given several away and the receivers were so surprised.

  36. Pat Marsh says:

    Hello Anna,
    I had purchased your Pretty Pop-Up All-Occasion Cardmaking Kit back in January to make Mother’s Day cards – I just opened the kit and discovered the Goldtone die cuts, oval die-cuts and both sizes of the sentiment stickers were missing. I called HSN and they were nice enough to give me credit for the kit. I know you will be on HSN on May 11 – please bring some of these kits for that show.
    I already love you, but will love you even more!!!! Thanks and enjoy your weekend!!

  37. Ruth Ann Martin says:

    Hi Anna – I went broke on your last HSN program in March. I hope I have everything all paid for by May 11th so I cana go broke again. Love your products. Ruth Ann

  38. Carol Poston says:

    Congratulations Martha & thanks bunches, Anna for all of your beautiful art. The videos are wonderful and I hope you keep them coming. I’ve been buying anything Anna since seeing you on the Sandy Genovese show years ago. My grandchildren’s scrapbooks are so beautiful thanks to you. Can’t wait for May 11 to get all your new products.

  39. Kate says:

    Why don’t I just turn over my paycheck to HSN and be done with it LOL Everything is just so…Wantable (hows that for a new word?)

  40. Susan & Bob Adkins says:

    Looking forward to HSN and all your wonderful products. My hubby and I both scrap and love your products When we get our scrapbook supplies organized (went through a flood that devastated our city3 yrs ago) we plan on having a huge section for our Anna supplies! Love it!

  41. June Schaub says:

    Yes Anna I do enjoy all the videos – the more the merrier as I am also a visual learner and the videes with your directions are great! I got my Grace in black bedding set and it is soooo gorgeous! We had snow today in Flagstaff AZ so will put the new comforter set on the bed next month! Very nice

  42. Sue Lutz says:

    Congratulations to Martha ! I love the scrapbook page in this post. Looking forward to May 11th and seeing what is new and wonderful that I just have to have…..and looking forward to the auto ship I’ll be receiving soon from a previous hsn shopping day with Anna.

  47. Marcie Smith says:

    Martha, if you are out there, congrats!!!!! I know you are going to have so much fun crafting with these great products. Lucky you. Anna, thank you so much can not wait for May 11th and the next couple of Tuesday posts to see what else you will be bringing us. Thanks.

  48. Shellie Fontana says:

    Honestly, Anna, I would love owning and watching (over and over) a DVD featuring all your how-to’s, even though they are available online; like an idea-book in motion. When I travel (often) to my family in rural SD and NE, it hasn’t always been easy to connect online or tune-in ‘live.’ Until then, I will look forward to meeting you where you are. As always, thank you, Anna, for teaching and sharing your knowledge and techniques.

  49. SuzzieQ says:

    Yes, I like the videos you have been doing for us. It is so helpful to watch in person just what we as consumers need to do to get the most out of your products. Please keep up the great videos. Thank you,

  50. Shellie Fontana says:

    I know, right! My husband is a ‘tech guy,’ and he ordered me the Cricut Explore when I was watching Anna on HSN during National Craft Month in March 2014. I had to go out of town when it was due to ship; so, my husband set it up, created me an account, and made the first project, a Thank You card.’ I am still having fun learning Explore. Cricut has made it easy; Anna has made it beautiful!

  51. Shellie Fontana says:

    Congratulations to Martha today! And, thank you, Anna, for presenting such helpful ‘beautiful in the making’ how-to videos, as well as Sneak Peeks on your BLOG! I always learn something, and it is as gratifying to send out an Anna-card as it is to be a recipient of “p-mail” (pretty mail). One of your best qualities, Anna, is your sharing techniques. I really appreciate it! Looking forward to seeing you ‘in my home’ (on the big-screen), May 11, on HSN.

  52. Lin M. says:

    Congratulations Martha!!!

    Anna – I LOVE your videos!!! Please keep them coming! You make using the craft knife look so simple. I usually make a mess of things with one. LOL I’m hoping that if I keep watching and practicing that I’ll get it.
    I can’t wait to see next weeks sneak preview and to find out what the TS is going to be!!!
    Have a Great Weekend!

  53. yadyra marrero says:

  55. caroline hill says:

    Congratulations Martha,Can not wait until my lucky day.Keep up the beautiful work Anna big fan of your work.

  56. Bette Sines says:

    I may just have to go to work for HSN since I am out of control when it comes to Anna Griffin. My husband keeps asking me if I’m planning on opening a store with all her products in my craft room! It would be so great to win one of these times, so in the mean time, I will lust have to wait and keep my fingers crossed!

  57. Bette Sines says:

    I would so like to see my name as a winner one of these days, but congratulations to Martha. She is indeed a very lucky lady. In the meantime, I guess I’ll just have to keep trying while I’m shopping at all of her scrapbook/card showings. She has me wrapped around her little finger…for sure!

  58. Bette Sines says:

    I just can’t get enough of Anna Griffin products. It would really be special to be a winner sometime, but instead, I will just have to be satisfied with dreaming and shopping. My husband says I need to “get a grip!”

  59. Kathleen Froelich says:

    I love your videos. It is nice to see you putting the cards together. Things sell out so quickly on hsn we hardly get to see your samples.

  60. HollyG says:

    Hello Miss Anna!
