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!



  1. Gloria Shirr says:

    Does the new heat pen also use the same foil that we use for the Minc? Does it only work on laser printed images; just like the Minc? Thanks.

  2. Helen Lewis says:

    I will be watching. And have my list of wants in hand. Enjoy Venice what a thrill..

  14. Janet DeRose says:

    Hi Anna: How lucky to be in Venice. I’m lucky, too. I was so unhappy to miss out on the butterfly dies last time, but I have already ordered them this time and they are on the way to me. Yay! Good start to the next big crafting HSN day. Can’t wait!

  17. Sherri says:

    Love all the new items & anxiously waiting to see a demo using them. Received a new kitchen gadget today from HSN that we ordered over the weekend & had the May program guide in it & found out that May 11th is a 24 hour event. Yahoo! That makes a fun day, just getting over the last one, LOL. But I was able to take advantage the other day when HSN had free SH on craft products. Thanks to Anna’s team & HSN for bringing back several items I was able to get the extra larger envelope kit with sentiments, liners & bows {finally, went on & picked up even though they had mixed reviews); the butterfly dies (Yea!) & the package with the 6 x 12 cuttlebug plates (now can try out the tricks & folds folders). Thanks!! Noticed some of the beautiful papers are back to, hope to get later, please keep in stock (maybe next month on May 11 can order). Laid out some of the Pretty Paintings & some other card kit pieces to start on Mother Day cards & some birthday cards…May & June comes around with all the birthdays, anniversaries & special days you’d think it was Xmas. Here’s wishing to win & then I would know for sure that Anna is really Santa!

  18. laurie moore says:

    looking forward to the 6×6 perfect pallette!. would also like a different color scheme; blues, whites, browns.

  19. Stephanie Hurley says:

    I love the 6×6 boxed card kit! Please bring back the 5×7 too! I can’t wait to see the demo on the TS with AG and American Crafts!

  20. Sherri says:

    Yes, Charlotte, ditto, I also have a scrapbook kit that came in a beautiful AG box! No one else has topped that!

  21. Ines Prelas says:

    I have so many things from Anna Griffin that I will need to add another room in the house. I have kids over once a week and we work on projects and they just love it. The kids are so talented they come up with idea’s not even I have thought of and they can not wait for more stuff from you collection. Love everything.

  22. Lori Hable says:

    Oh my gosh, Anna. They just keep getting better and better! I absolutely love your cardstock, especially when paired with your amazing embossing folders. You are AMAZING!!!!

  23. Gay Rudolf says:

    I like the 6×6 too. I love what is coming up.
    I have been learning a lot and buying a lot.

    Thank you for your help

  24. Cathy May says:

    Debbie Hutchinson

  31. Shirley A says:

    Can hardly wait to try the heat pen and foil. It looks as if a new, wonderful dimension and shimmer can be added to our cards and paper crafting projects. Awesome.

  32. Jen S says:

    HSN had a 2 day special of free shipping on craft items which ended at 11:59 EST on the 28th. I noticed they did not get the words “free shipping” off all the individual items right away tho

  33. Julie says:

    Anna I hope you are enjoying Italy I almost made it there one time and still do. Is it as beautiful as they say? Love the new folders and colors. Hard to wait until the 11 th. When does the autoship come for the berailles frames?

  37. La La MARTINEZ says:

    Not familiar with a heat pen or Minc, but I love the idea of glitter and foil. I just realize it was my 66th birthday yesterday, I think I’ll make me a card! hehe Come home with lots of ideas Anna, bless you!

  38. KAREN says:


  39. Patti Garcia says:

    I am thinking I will have to get the heat pen. I am not sure what a mind is. I am sure it will be fabulous if your name is on it.

  40. Jennie Thompson says:

    Oh my goodness! This week’s sneak peek is so darn exciting!!! I would love to win them!!! I’m looking forward to the May 11th show(s), which I’ll be recording so I can watch it again once all my goodies are here! You are a wonderful inspiration to all us crafters. Thank you for the opportunity to win these items.

  41. Karen says:

    Well, Anna, you sure have got me stumped this time! I have no idea of what a minc is or how a heat pen works—and I do already have and use a heat gun. My curiosity will have to wait until your show on HSN. That’s why I love card making-there is always something new to learn. Who says you can’t teach an old dog a new trick!

  42. Shellie Fontana says:

    Oh, my! A heat pen, Anna! THAT is amazing! Every rose will be gilt~
    I really do enjoy my Golden Cuttlebug THE.MOST, and I use basics the most–the 6 x 6-in. cards are wonderful, AND, I would really like them in ivory as much as your Perfect Pallette!
    ALWAYS look forward to spending time with you on HSN in my very own livingroom! See you May 11th!!

  43. Michelle Reaves says:

    Wow! I’ll bet you’re having the best time ever!! Can’t wait for May 11th to get here!!!

  44. GERI says:

    Thank you for all the Stunningly Beautifulovelyness, that you have created to help us look so good as we give gifts and cards, and take all the credit for!!! Can’t wait for May 11th!!!

  45. Debra M says:

    Love the 6×6 papers!! Very interested in the heat gun too! Anxious to see how it works with the foil!!

  46. Coletta Cooper says:

    The heat pen is blowing my mind! Duet folders and perfect pallet papers! I can’t wait for May 11, Anna!

  47. June E says:

    I’ve got my calendar set. I may be a griffinista newbie, but I am starting to get the hang of it and really like the results I’m getting. You do need some selections for Nurses’ Week, though.

  48. Charlotte B says:

    Wow Anna! I have to tell you, you keep coming up with new & surprising ideas!
    I’ve been with you for quite a while. In fact the first product of yours I ever bought was off the OTHER channel, and it was a giant scrapbook kit that came in a beautiful box with the Album, Papers to make a 12 month album, extra paper, printed monthly cardstock, a set of stamps, small cardmaking, a tube of epoxy-like liquid, I think some metal charms…did I remember it all?!?
    Anyway, I also used to hand cut along with you, so I know of what you speak!
    Can’t wait to try your new heat pen & foil!
    Enjoy your trip! Safe travels 🙂

  49. Pam Cooper says:

    Interesting !! Anxious to see the pen demo..
    Love ALL your stuff Anna, so know I won’t be disappointed.
    Thanks for all you do for us out here !!!!

  50. Annette J says:

    Italy…AWESOME. I am full blooded Italian and LOVE Italy. The new items are fantastic and I can’t wait for the 11th. Ciao to you too Anna…Bela Anna!

  51. JannyLou says:

    Dear Anna,
    ~Loved this week’s teaser of products to be offered May 11th and your video on location! Hope you are enjoying your trip!

    ~The Perfect Palette paper ensemble has caught my attention. It appears to be a very versatile package of cardstock, etc. Nice!

    ~I love the effects of your embossing designs on my cards. So I am very interested in seeing their details.

    PS Thank you to HSN and Cricut for recently offering a package of A,B,C 12″ embossing plates for the Cuddlebug. But what does one do with a C plate? See you on May 11th, Anna!

  52. Ronny says:

    when I first looked at the heat pen and the foil pack it said free shipping but when I added it to my cart it charges for shipping.
    when I go back to look at them under their number it doesn’t say free shipping anymore! What happened?

  53. Ronny says:

    Wish I knew how the heat pen is supposed to work. Sounds very interesting. If you lay the foil on your design, then apply the heat pen to it how do you see where it is actually going to go? How is the Minc different than the heat pen. Oh dear I just have so many questions and as you can see I just can’t wait to see what its all about!

  54. Ellen says:

    I can’t wait to see that heat pen demonstrated. If I had to choose, that would be my #1 pick. Thanks for your new products as always!!!

  55. Cheryl McMahan says:

    Oh Anna!!! You never cease to amaze me. Your products are the best!!! Looking forward to your day on HSN!

  56. suzanne beauregard says:

  57. Sandy says:

    Beautiful as always and a new tool to boot. I am a tool junky so I can’t wait to see it work.

  58. Peachy W says:

  60. Brenda L (centralnyscrapper) says:

    It looks like you are having a wonderful time in Italy. Bummer, I missed out on the butterfly dies on AS again. As usual, my excitement over your new items makes my cc quake with fear. I cannot wait to see the demos. 🙂

  61. Sally La Com Fasano says:

    A long time ago I did “foiling”. This instrument that you created looks great and so much easier than what we did back “in the day. . .” Hope I win. Thank you for giving me the opportunity.

  62. Chyrl says:

    Can’t wait to see the heat pen demonstration. The papers look beautiful and I’m eagerly looking forward to May 11th.

  69. Karen W. says:

    I can’t wait to see the new Heating Pen tool in action! I can just imagine all the decorations this would be good for, but I’d like to know if it can be used on more than paper.

  70. Kathy Higgins says:

    Hi Anna! I really like the paper colors. They will make beautiful cards. Thank you for a chance to win!

  71. Alice says:

  80. Judy Roberts says:

    Love all your products and so very hard to decide which are my favorite. But I love all your embossing folders and dies. So versatile…

  81. Billie Dee says:

    As beautiful and elegant as always. I am intrigued by the pen! How interesting! Enjoy Venice and stay safe.

Hope you will be bringing them to the UK soon. Enjoy your visit to Italy and thank you for your posts.

  87. Sandra Crawford says:

    Anna, the perfect palette papers look so beautiful and I would have a hard time finding anything like that in the stores. I learned long ago that if you are putting the work, time and effort into your card making and paper projects, use the best products (yours!!!). I love the idea of that foil heat pen too, such fun trying out new stuff, and I cannot wait till May 11th.

  88. Anna Griffin says:

    A Minc machine allows you to apply foil to any design printed on black laser toner. We will tell you all about it next Tuesday!

  89. Anna Griffin says:

    The three products were the 6×6 Perfect Palette, the Grand Duets embossing folders and the Heat Pen.

  90. sue says:

    Anna, the heat pen looks amazing! Will it come with interchangeable points and stencils??? I hope so!!
    It looks so fun to think of what we can do with your designs and this new “bling bring it on” tool!!
    More and is more and that is always Beautiful in the Making!

  91. Theresa Grdina says:

    A new tool????? I’m in!! That heat tool looks fun! Can’t wait to see how it works.

  101. Merrie Osborn says:

    The perfect palette set has such pretty colors! I like the more vivid colors I want a heat pen too! I think I can imagine what the TS is and look forward to it!! Anna please bring back the foil layers. I thought about ordering on QVC from England but decided to wait to see if they come in here instead of paying postage from England–PLEASE!!!!

  102. Carole Hamstra says:

    So excited about foiling!! So glad you are coming out with a machine! I know you will support it with great instruction and supplies! Love the large embossing folders, too! Yay!

  103. talesia says:

    We were without power due to the tornados by the time I got to this tonight the butterfly AS was sold out again… sigh.. I give up.. must not be meant for me

  104. Deb (Moyock, NC) says:

    Hi Anna!

    Isn’t Venice the absolute best place ever! Loved it there! Lots of great goodies. But I am really looking forward to seeing how the pen works. Was really disappointed to find out when I got home today that the butterflies were sold out once again! Really big bummer!

    I love the new foil tool! What an awesome thing to be able to put foil on our cards! It will just add the special brightness to any project and the 6×6 card, thank you for giving us another size card to make. I have so many ideas for square cards and love all your embellishments and paper so it would be great to put them into a nice square card!! And you for your creativeness Anna!!,

  111. Gail Behrle says:

    Another great preview! Love all the new products, but my favorites are the 6 x 6 Perfect Palette Cards and Layers & the Grand Duets embossing folders.

    I love the heating tool, great ideal!!. I like the Perfect Palette cards 6×6 , But I do wish they were 5 x 6.5 or bigger. I like the size your card kits our. Love the colors in the Palette

  123. Jean Carlson says:

    Anna – How wonderful for you to be in Italy! I can hardly wait for the perfect palettes and to see you again – soon – on the tv. Have a safe and blessed trip home. Grammy Purple

  124. Michele Ciccone says:

    Love the new stuff!! I want to see the demo of the heat gun. Have a question for Anna. Would you consider having a card making retreat? I know I would love it and suspect many of the Griffinistas would agree!!!!

  125. Patricia R. says:

    The embossing folders are my favorite in the preview. But the heat pen looks interesting, too. Looking forward to all your new and amazing products.

  126. Jan Martin says:

    What’s not to love?! Wow. I can’t wait to see the demo on the heat pen. That totally has my attention!

  127. Heidi says:

    Ohhhhhhh, something new????? I NEED that pen! Can’t wait to see what it does. I have a pretty good idea, but can’t wait to see. Hurry, hurry show us please!

  128. Roxann H says:

    I would love to get those 6×6 cards as I am getting ready to order the new folders. I am sure the pen is going to be amazing as our all your products. I really like your new card kit Pretty Paintings. Cards are beautiful.
    Thanks again for making us look good!

  129. Jane Bill says:

    All sound exciting! Just like so many of the others, I can’t wait to see how the pen works! Now for May 11th!!

  130. Terri says:

    A Heat PEN! What a fabulous concept… can’t wait to see it demonstrated! You are just full of ideas, Anna! Keep them coming!

  131. Amy says:

    A couple years ago,you sold a large supply of flowers in a large kit-size box. I think it was called, “Embellishments”.I have never seen it anywhere, of course.
    Might you re-issue this…I never want to run out of your beautiful flowers; they’re the centerpiece of cards!
    Thanks very much, Amy

  132. Diane Shull says:

    Loving the Perfect Palette 6 x 6 Cards and layers. Thank you Anna for doing these. Looking forward to the shows and safe travels and enjoy yourself.

    Blessings and a HUG.

  133. Amy says:

    Thank you, Anna, for all the wonderful designs and tools you create. We get to enjoy the beautiful results of your hard work.
    Congratulations, too, on changing the face of the greeting card industry!! I was in a ‘super store’ the other day. Looking at Mother’s Day cards, I was stunned to find some that looked exactly like ones I had made–or seen online…embossed flowers, butterflies, vertical ribbons, silver decorations. It may not sound like much, but it was amazing how much these designs copied ones I’ve seen you make and examples of cards on other websites.
    So, thanks again for your dedication to creating lovely ways to bless and nurture people.
    I’m excited to see what’s next!! Best wishes, Amy

  134. Kay Dell Whitlock says:

  139. Lori L says:

  140. Geri Olson says:

    I can’t wait to see what the new minc and heating tool will create! I just finished the Pretty Paintings set, and am looking forward to using the new square cards. I just love the square format. I know they take extra postage, but a square card is just so beautiful.

  146. Peggy Wilson says:

    All I can say is life is good…..you are traveling in Venice and you still manage to provide the sneak peak of the products as well as a sneak peak of Venice. So much fun to be had. How do you manage to come up with so many wonderful items…you rock, Anna!!!

    My favorite this week has to be the Perfect Palette Card Layers. The colors are so “perfect”!! The Heat Pen looks like it is going to be fun. Can’t wait to see it demonstrated.

  165. Sarah Lumpkins says:

    I can’t wait for your new TSV on HSN!! I love all the items previewed so far and want to buy them all!! Your products and creativity inspire me to be a better crafter! Thanks for the tools and inspiration!

  166. Sherry Lovelass says:

    Love everything as usual. Intrigued by the new heat tool. Can’t wait until the 11th

  167. Marty Kersey says:

    I . can hardly wait for May 11th this will be such an exciting day for us all. I think the foil pen is amazing . Again I love everything you design for us .
    Hope you have a wonderful time in Vience.

  168. Joanne Spalla says:

    All I can say is ***. I have had my eye on the Minc, but I thought the large machine would take up too much precious space on my crafting table. A six inch machine will fit perfectly. I am so glad I waited.

  169. Ruth Howie says:

    Gorgeous as always. Love all your designs . You have a great talent.
    Keep up the great work.

  170. Sandy says:

    Hi, Anna……..
    I can’t wait for May 11th and all of the new crafting items and demos coming our way !! I am especially interested in this week’s Anna Griffin Heat Pen — I love tools !! You just keep out-doing yourself — your creativity is just so amazing !! Anyway, thanks for all you do to bring out the creativity in all of us. See you on the 11th — Sandy

  171. Sheryl W says:

    Love them all, is all I can come up with this week. Sorry, but that is how awesome they are. They leave me speechless.

  172. Gracie says:

    Maybe…. I’ll order TSV first and then learn how to use it! I’m sure it will be great ’cause Anna would never lead us astray…

  173. Janice B. says:

    My favorite item from this week’s sneak preview is the Perfect Palette layers for cardmaking and I look forward to seeing the Anna Griffin Heat Pen in action. I have been all about foil lately and this looks tempting!

  174. Debbie Holt says:

    Can’t wait for May 11th! I’m looking forward to using the new embossing folders and getting the perfect palette cards!

  175. MT Pat says:

    I want to see the pen in action. I’m looking forward to seeing it demonstrated because foil accents would add zip to many cards.

  176. Rosann DuChette says:

    Ordered the Buttery die auto ship today! I just ordered a Grand Calibur so I can emboss 8×11.5 paper and cut more than one at a time. Suggestion I think you should do a larger cuttlebug! I’m sure it will be a hit!

  177. Jenny Hunt says:

    Love Them all can’t wait for the Minc machine and the heat pen, oh well I will want it ALL. See you, Anna May 11th

  178. Cathy Brown says:

    I’m so excited about your heat tool. Can’t wait to see all it will do. Love all the other products!

  179. Leslie says:

    WOO HOO!!!! It is better than the Mlnc because you can make your own designs. (you need a laser printer with the MInc) So looking forward to seeing it. I just demoed the Minc where I work so I know how cool this is going to look. Please pick me!!! Hope I am off that day.

  180. Brenda Zimmerman says:

    Ohhhhhhh… now I can’t wait for your TSV!!! I used to emboss my cards with a lightbox and stylus, and used the foil to wow my receivers, but I had to use the glue and then rub the foil on… if I was willing to do that to make my cards stand out, just imagine what me and a MINC could do!!! So glad you got your name on one, too… Can’t wait – and yes – I missed out on the Auto-Ship the first time, but I got it coming now – so THANK YOU. for everything!

  181. Cristy says:

    I will love to see how to use the heat pen. I’m sure to order the 6 x 6 cards palette. Love your products.
    PS. Those are 2 products, where is the third one?

  182. Vickie B says:

    The HEAT PEN LOOKS INTERESTING! Anxious to see what projects you come up with to show us on the 11th.

  183. Jo Ryder says:

    Am looking forward to adding a touch of gold with you foiling pen and new minc. May your trip be wonderful and memories to treasure and inspire.

  184. Samantha Coleman says:

  185. Penny C says:

  186. Jill M says:

    Anna, I have promised myself that I must really work at making some cards! My goal is 6 this week. It seems my goal before was to just buy everything and then look for some other things to buy! So now I’m into using my stash and then I can buy some more. It looks like I will never be able to catch up to all the beautiful things you are offering for sale! Jill

  187. laura says:

    Well if your new products are half as much fun as the last two kits I received, I’m in trouble. My heart skipped a beat when I completed my first cards from the kits. They are so beautiful. Today I mailed 8 cards to my family and friends. I can’t wait to hear their reaction. Have fun Anna!

  188. roxanne says:

  193. Nancy Broeker says:

    Of course, like everyone else, I want it all. Can’t wait to see how to use the Heat Pen. Looks like something I will have to have.

  202. Kathleen Albrecht says:

    Anna, everyone has said it all! Heat pen is my favorite. I can’t keep up with all the new things you have coming our way!! I took 2 cards to the rehab center where my dad is and it makes the ladies there so happy. I used one of the 1st dies you brought and cut out in gold glitter paper. They went on and on.

  203. Susan Roberts says:

    So excited for the TSV! I don’t have a laser printer but hopefully you will have pre-made designs. In anticipation I already ordered the foul sheets..that heat pen looks intriguing !

    already ordered the butterfly dies. Sooo
    happy to see them return. And free shipping to boot.

  205. Dorothy says:

  206. Laura Payne says:

    Thank you, Anna! I can’t wait to see all you new goodies! I want them all, of course. I just ordered the butterfly auto-ship and the gatefold embossing folders I missed last time! I can’t wait to use them!

  207. Debbie says:

  215. Jean Condon says:

    Love the colors too!

    Cio, christina

  218. Chris McDonald says:

    You always give us such wonderful options it is difficult for us to choose. Love the perfect pallet as I still have not bought it and want it soooo badly.

  219. Michelle says:

    Hope you are having fun in Italy. My family went when we had winter in North Dakota and when we were in Italy, they had a snow storm. cCouldn’t get away from winter.I love the new gun. Hope to win, I still need to do my Italy book.Loved everything on our trip.

  222. Gena Greenlee says:

    I am really curious to try the heated metallic pen!! I saw the foil paper on HSN and when I read the details it said to be used with heat pen- I thought I figured out the TS!! Then I went to the blog and there it was!! Not the TS!! I want all the new items!! But, I did get the butterfly dies!!! Yeah!!!

  223. Elsie Lozano says:

    Can’t wait to see how the heat pen works and what great things can be created with it.

  224. Brenda Phillips says:

    After every show you have I always think you can’t possibly do something that could equal or ever surpass the things on that show. It looks as if this show is going to be a shocker of new things. Love It!!!!

  225. Carole Lewis says:

    I’m intrigued by the 6″x6″ embossing folders, (a new of thinking and designing) and also the heat pen.
    For the woman who was concerned about the extra postage charge for mailing square cards, I would offer a few suggestions–that there are plenty of times we give cards in person (rather than through USPS); that Hallmark sometimes offers oblong envelopes to enclose their square cards and envelopes for more practical mailing; and, that hand-made square picture frames (and other craft projects) would be beautiful with the 6″x6″ embossing folders!

  226. Lin M. says:

    WOW – Venice, Italy!!! I hope you are having a wonderful time there!
    Thanks for the preview – I can’t wait to see how this new heat pen works!

  227. Diane Fletcher says:

  233. Andi says:

  234. Anne-Marie Bezzina says:

  235. karenladd says:

    Oooh, that collection of card bases and envelopes has me drooling and I can’t wait to see how the heat pen works! So many wonderful possibilities!

  236. Tracey Magner says:

    OHH Anna, Anna, Anna, I am sooo UPSET.. Just this morning I bought the minc machine from H,S., I have debated buying it for over a month and finally did it this morning and then I read your blog and I guess I’m not as smart as the others because I didn’t figure out the Today Special,or I would NEVER have purchased that other machine. I called and they won’t let me cancel, I have to wait till I get it and then send it back for lots of postage.I swear this is my life, only me this would happen too. If I didn’t have bad luck I wouldn’t have no luck.

  237. Karen says:

    OK cannot wait I was just making cards with all my fabulous left overs and those card bases sure would have come on handy. OK how does that new tool work??? cannot wait to see it

  238. Marissia Seals says:

    I can’t wait to see the heat tool. One thing I really wish for is that things like the 12×12 plates that you need would be on site all the time as a staple item. I have missed some things I’ve wanted because they sold out quickly. I live all your things so I hate to miss them . I can’t wait till the 11th!

  239. Linda Gilliam says:

    Oh my goodness…Venice, how fabulous!
    All the new products look SO fun and interesting, you continue to inspire and amaze Anna!

  240. Gayle J says:

    Anna I cannot wait for the May 11th show.

  247. Velma says:

    Got my calendar out & counting down. Can’t wait to see all the new products. Have a great time on your trip.

  248. Penny K. says:

    I really missed your comments today. I am not sure how the folders work, and I have been using embossing
    folders for years! The same with the heat pen unless it is similar to a wood burning pen and you use foil paper to apply the heat….See how much we NEED you!! Glad you are having a wonderful time in Venice, but really look forward to your presentation of these products so I can NEED them! See you on the 11th….

  250. Debra Carden says:

    Love all the new items! Would love to win so I could save a little money on my card!! Can’t wait till the 11th!

  251. Karen says:

    My Easter card was a 6 by 6 card. It should be the next new size. I like large cards as they have a lot of base for my embellishments. So this is a perfect addistion to the assortments.

  252. Carla Joseph says:

    So excited for May 11!!! Can’t wait to see you demonstrate everything! Not sure about the heat pen but am definitely interested in those 6 x 6 Perfect Palette Cards & the 12″ embossing folders.

  253. Dana Brandl says:

    Once again, all of the products look awesome. I think I am most excited to see what you do with the heat pen. But, I do love embossing folders!!!

  254. Janet Gardner says:

    Isn’t Venice amazing and inspiring? I know it’s going to have you thinking of so many new paper designs, etc. Have a fantastic time.

  255. carol harmon says:

    Hi Anna, Everything is so beautiful, as usual, and I love it all. I just ordered more paper and the chalk board sentiments. Hope I win. Thanks, Love Carol

  256. Jane says:

    I use nothing but your metallic paper. I bought more than one because I knew they were going to go fast. I am working on the Painted cards and pop up kits.
    Last night I spent cutting your dies to add to the cards. My cards look great.

  257. Sandra says:

    Can’t wait till May 11. Anna, your new card and layer set looks beautiful, just like everything else that you make.

  258. Nell McRae says:

    As a new “student” of cardmaking I am losing sleep watching tutorials, experimenting, collecting materials. I eagerly await the next show and my next autoship! Thank you, Anna Griffin for opening a whole new world to me!

  259. Jayne Evans says:

  265. Jonie Isenberg says:

    Everything is wonderful!!! I can’t wait for the Heat Machine. I love anything that goes with my Cuttlebug. I have never won, but it’s always fun to try. I buy everything whether I win it or not. Things are getting tougher so I’ll have to hit my husband up for some cash. I just have to have the new things.

  266. Donna Baker says:

    Can’t wait for the May 11 show and to get my hands on the new 6 x 6 perfect pallet as this is my fave card size and of course the embossing folders which I will have to make room for since I have so many already. Have a wonderful time. Ciao!!!!

  294. Nellie Rose says:

    Ok, I’m outta here gotta go look on HSN for those 5.5 x 12 ” embossing folders.. hugs

  295. Joanne says:

    I’m curious to see the new embossing folders. I wish when HSN displayed them on their shopping board they would show what the designs are. Seeing just the folders you can’t actually see the design. It would be better if they showed a black and white drawing of the design. Can’t wait

  296. Kim Salkus says:

    I love your colour coordination a and am so jealous too, I’ve always wanted to see Venice.

  297. Jill Pearson says:

  300. GrannyD says:

    Lets see, I know what all I do with glitter pens, I also know what I do with little blingy gems so I can well imagine that the heat pen that transfers gold foil is definitely going to be a favorite of mine here at my little Annaland. That would be my choice, of course…..bring on the bling!

  301. Kathleen Clark says:

    What great additions to the Anna Griffin line! The 6×6 perfect palette is PERFECT! Not only for 6×6 cards, but for those of us who circle punch and emboss card layers. Can’t wait!

  309. myrna hartley says:

    Can’t wait to see everything before I make a decision what to buy. I was waiting for a Cali king duvet or comforter in ecru but none so far, hoping on the 11th.

    Have been doing my perfect palette cards mixed with those others embossed, inked and satin ribbon. Oh yes I found organza polka dot ribbon to go on your cards, they pop. Love everything you create.

    Have fun in time in Italy, eat at all the great restaurants.

  320. Vivian Kochis says:

  324. Pat C. says:

    Hope your having a Great time in Venice, Italy. Know your observing all the inspiration around you. Soon to come back home with many creative ideas to share with your fans.

  326. Lynn Ossolinski says:

    Grand duets is now on my wish list. It looks complex and romantic at the same time. I do want to see the pen demonstration as I am not sure how to use it. I love gold leaf that looks good even when I mess it up. I know you will come back from Venice with some Venetian designs for us.

  327. Barbara Lieb says:

    The heat pen sounds intriguing. Love everything of yours but not so much into the 6×6 products.

  328. Lora Posey says:

    Can’t wait to see all the showing on May 11 th ! I just hope HSN gets my orders right this time . Last time they got 2 different orders wrong ( one was the butterfly diecuts collection ) and just now was able to re order the butterfly collection . Thank you for bringing them back !!!
    The embossing folders are different !
    It would be great if you put a colored paper behind when you showcase them on HSN , so we can see the designs better . Or, have a colored design on them already !
    The pen looks interesting !

  329. Deborah Bode says:

    I can only say I wish I was there with you Anna it looks so beautiful. Have a great time. Can’t wait until May.

  361. Bev Limbach says:

    You always teach this old bird new tricks so the heat gun will be my next lesson in card making. What fun I have with all your products. My craft room is exploding with your beautiful flowers, card sets and papers. Keep it coming and I will keep crafting.

  370. Anna Reich says:

    oh my one of my guesses was right it’s a foiling machine yippee can’t wait till it’s available will have to order one a sap..

  371. Jackie says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win these beautiful products. I’m looking forward to learning more about this heat pen.

  372. Kathryn says:

    A fan since day one on another network…now follow you religiously on HSN. JoAnn

  375. Debbie McL says:

    How exciting for you Anna to be enjoying the most romantic city of Venice. I was there in the 1970’s and it is gorgeous…the gondolas, the architecture, the art and exquisite paintings, and the delicious Italian food. I am so happy for you. Your new Grand Duets embossing folders look fabulous. Godetevi Venezia!!!

  376. Linda Taylor says:

    Woo Hoo I was correct in guessing the Minc! I think I was the first to make that guess, but the heat pen is a complete surprise! It sounds very intriguing. Being able to guild a little here and a little there and a little more until the project is perfect will be fun.
    It looks like I am either going to be at the copy store or investing in a laser printer in the very near future. I am assuming the Anna Griffin Minc will be like the original and work only with laser printers and not with inkjet printers. Is that correct?
    I can just imagine the beautiful Christmas cards I can make with all the Christmas music i have just a copy and Minc away from becoming a gorgeous card. The possibilites are deliciously endless!
    Also the new 6×6 Perfect Palette will be great to use with the Foil Layers cardstock set I already purchased.

    Already bought my cartridges on HSN a few minutes ago. Like new embossing folders, however I am not a big fan of the 6×6 format. Square cards are more expensive to mail. Went to a scrapbooking crop last weekend but I made cards instead, using several of your embossing folders and the embellishments I made from your decoupage collections. I had all those florals in a box and women were commenting about how beautiful they were. I went around the room to see what others were creating, all nice except no one else there had your distinct style, none were pretty, just utilitarian. So sad! Thank you for helping me find what I know I really like. I have the other two perfect pallet kits and will probably get these as well. They do come in very handy. Oh, I also used some of the embellishments from your For Her punch outs and what they added was just gorgeous. The cards turned out so nice I am wanting to keep them rather than send them!

  381. Sandy W says:

    Heat pen has peaked my interest. I am using stickles now and find them hit or miss. I am anxious to see how the pen works.

  382. Lorraine Douglas says:

    About to order the embossing folders………….can’t wait for the heat pen, I’m ready to start on my Christmas cards for this year :)!!!!!!
    Thanks again Anna for such wonderful products.

    Greetings All!
    I couldn’t get today’s video to play…. so I saw only two new items. Perfect Palette, and the heat pen. Of the two, I would choose the 6″ X 6″ cardstock: however, must admit I would prefer 6″ X 6″ sets with borders; similar to the ones in the Pretty Paintings card kit.
    I’m perfectly capable of cutting my own 6 X 6 cardstock from Anna’s Perfect Palette Cardstock Kit, but cannot print the pretty artwork that adds so much beauty to the cards I make!
    Here’s a tip to you gals and gents….
    Save your Cricut cutting mats when they don’t have enough tack left to hold the cardstock while cutting with the Cricut. (Rinsing, and hanging to dry may help extend the life of the stickiness. DON’T use soap! Just cold water.) When there is not enough tack for cutting, use the mat to lay your cardstock on for STAMPING, which will keep your cardstock from “SHIFTING” during stamping! Works GREAT!
    Have a wonderful day! Can’t wait for the 11th!

    Rhonda L.P.

  388. Patty says:

    New gadgets intimidate me. Hope I can find how it works and watch the video. Love the summer pastel paper.

  389. Marcie Smith says:

    Thanks for the heads up on the Butterfly autoship!!!!! I missed out on this last airing, so I raced over and got my order in. Can’t wait for the heat pen and everything else. Mother’s Day shopping here I come.

  390. Linda Daum says:

    Love the layered card set, the colors are perfect. Not sure about the heat pen, can’t wait to see a demo.

  391. Sharla Wilson says:

    Had to say thank you for your response–don’t know if it was “just for me” or quite a few of us out here—-I’d commented last week about being so sad that I hadn’t ordered the butterfly dies but didn’t even imagine that I’d be able to get them so quickly. I used your link to HSN and ordered immediately. THANK YOU—I appreciate!! On May 11th, (If I have any $$ left after pre-visiting HSN!) I’m going to be much more thorough about getting it all together! Can’t wait to see those dies and make some beautiful Mother’s Day cards!

  392. Lorraine says:

  409. Marty says:

    Would like to try the heat pen, I have used other hot foil pens and you have to hold the on button down while using it, very difficult but lovely results.

  410. Kathy Kramer says:

    Hi Anna! Italy is wonderful — the people are so warm and friendly. Venice is a beautiful city. We spent our honeymoon there — so seeing you with Venice in the background brings back memories! Excited to see the new products — and looking forward to seeing how to use the heat pen. Have a lovely time as you enjoy Italy!

  414. Linda DeVries says:

    The 6″ x 6″ Perfect Palette box of cards is on my list for May 11th;the new tool looks tempting also. Anna, I imagine you may find some interesting items in Vienna to add to your vintage collections! Hopefully you will tell us a little about your trip during the May 11th shows.

  415. Angie K. says:

    Ordered the butterfly dies and can’t wait for them to arrive! Thank you so much for all the inspiration!! Love the Perfect Palette Colors and Layers! Makes creating cards so easy and fun!

  416. Jackie Lokken says:

    Well I would say the card layers for me as tools don’t work to well for my shaking hands. They are all beautiful for sure.
