HSN May 11th Shopping List

Hi friends!

Can you believe it’s time for another 24-Hour Craft Day? We remember when there were only two craft days a year on HSN, and now they are happening more and more. We love seeing so many new people embracing Anna Griffin and DIY!

Our show times for Monday are midnight, 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., but we’ll be on all throughout the day with our very exciting Minc machine Today’s Special!  Speaking of the Minc, I think we owe one lucky winner one right now don’t we? Congratulations to Linda Young!! You are going to be adding foil and glitter galore to your craft projects. Have fun!



As always, we are giving you complete shopping list for the show today so you can get those wish lists ready. Important Note: Any items you see on the shopping list with a star by them are going to show in the system as backordered items. Don’t worry- they are not! They are just going to ship one day late.

  2. Linda Young says:

    Oh, my! Someone just messaged me on Facebook and asked if I was the Linda Young who won the Minc. I have been so wound up with hubby’s health issues that I haven’t kept up on anything. I’m sure hoping I am the Linda Young — this has certainly been a ray of sunshine for me. Thank you!! Do I need to contact someone with my information?

  3. Barbara Lieb says:

    I got my Minc last week and just had a chance to try it out. I must be doing something wrong as not all of the toner is getting covered so I have a small streak down each of the two items I tried. Help!

  4. Lori Lai says:

    I just received my foil pen today. I can not open the battery compartment to put the batteries inside the pen. I was so excited when it arrived. Do you have any suggestions on how to open the compartment? It just won’t seem to work for me. I noticed on HSN there were several people leaving the same comment on the “Reviews” page. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Julie says:

    HI Anna –

    I was SO hoping to order the Pretty Paintings card kit. Can you please bring it back?

    I also would like to buy the Foil-stamped card layer set.

    Thank you!

  6. Dalyce Mangum says:

    Thank you for such a fun day yesterday. I was able to hit everyone of your airings.
    Of course I always spend more than I intend to. But I’m always glad I did.

    I cannot wait for my Minc to get here. I also look forward to using my new Heat Pen.

    I wanted to say thank you so much for the Playful Pieces Card Kit.
    There was a lot of thought that went into making that.
    It is wonderful. A little kids dream! We are having our 29th grandchild the end of this month, so I needed to get 2 of them just to have enough for 1 year. I think I will need to go back and buy 2 more.!!!!

    Thanks again Anna, to you and your staff.
    A Wonderful, wonderful, day it was.


  7. Kim says:

    WOW what a day yesterday! I have to admit it was the first time I sat on the fence with one of Anna’s new “toys”! BUT then Suzanne talked about the future of stamp pads, well…… I was sold then, 20 minuets before the new TSV would air I broke down and ordered the Minc on AD! I was shocked it had not sold out like Anna’s TSV’s always do! I believe everybody was thinking like me, only white paper embellishments and not ivory like Anna’s? I still have so many questions that I hope I can answer once I get to play with mine! You did a beautiful job yesterday Anna, it looked like you guys were all having a real good time! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to the craft!! I do have to ask one more thing from you: PLEASE can you bring back some pre-made scrapbook kits?????? NOT these new pocket kind!

  8. Linda Valoy says:

    What a fun day it was watching HSN craft day ! I debated half the night and all day on whether I NEEDED the minc. Suszanne convinced me I had to have it when she was asking Anna about stamp pads and future possibilities with the minc. I bought the border stamps because I want to try embossing borders on my cards. I know Anna will top herself and make the minc more beautiful in the making.

  9. Gloria says:

    Love this new Minc. I had to purchase it for making my cards extra special. Which paper do I use when making my own toner, cardstock or copy paper? Can the toner pen and paint be used as a stamp pad for all the stamps I have? How about making a toner stamp pad? Look at all the stamps that can be foiled or glittered!

  10. Beth says:

    Second that! Please bring back the 20th Anniversary collection of floral embellishments OR do a new one…but we need a “flowers only” kit! Already 3D please…not a fan of the “build your own” type like the botanical collection. Thanks! Hopefully if we keep asking…

  11. Linda says:

    Anna don’t tell Suzanne she sold me on the minc thanks’ Linda
    you to are so fun to watch .

  12. Kimberly Salmonowicz says:

    Hi Anna, Today’s show was very exciting! I did order the Minc..yay! I was waiting for the Butterfly Auto Ship Dies.. and missed out a second time..Ugh! Will you please bring them back as an auto ship? I so loved everything in there! TIA, Kimberly

  13. Marcia Macsisak says:

    Question about the toner paint, can it be safely used on my clear stamps to stamp an image and then Minc it?

  14. Karin says:

    Hello, this is not a complaint but a BIG request. I find it very hard to see the pattern design on the embossing folders when they are on the HSN website. Would it be possible to include a piece of paper that would help show the detail? Just wondering. Have a great day.

  15. Jeanne says:

    I asked what it is and never got a reply.
    I’ve been asking if I have to buy s laser orintet to go with the Minc and nobody has answered that either.

  16. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Go to HSN, then CRAFTS, item number from Anna’s list, and it should be there. Try that.. Good luck and Happy Crafting! Lefty Lou

  17. Linda says:

    I hope every body had a great mother’s day
    now the wait come’s. just a note order your
    cartridge’s now and there free shipping to

  18. Dalyce says:

    Thank you so much Lou,
    I have been checking and checking and could not find it.
    I just watched it and now I want to buy it even more.

  19. roxanne says:

    hello Lou,
    thank you for that information.
    I figured i would not be getting the minc this time around. i thought it would be too expensive for me. BUT! i did check it out on HSN and what a deal! with all the extras it is a steal!
    How can Anna and HSN do this?
    I am now going to be up and ready to click to get this ……open open open…*s*

  20. roxanne says:

    I saw new videos on you tube this morning!
    I am going to be trying out my new pen a bit later when i have free time!
    what fun!
    and tomorrow!

  21. Marty Fishman says:

    When will we be able to order the next set of Mix and Match Embossing folders? I contacted your company and was told May 11th, but I didn’t see that on your list of products. I wasn’t able to order the first set on HSN so I didn’t get autoship…does that mean I won’t be able to get the other sets?
    Would love a reply…thanks. Marty

  22. Annette says:

    Can you double check your emails are set up correctly? I never received the email for Tuesday, 5/5, so I couldn’t even try to win. Then I miraculously get this email stating that the product was already given away. This is not the first time that this has happened. Just the first time for this set of videos for the entries.

  23. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Rose, go to

    Rose, go to HSN, then CRAFTS , THEN put in the item number. Hope it works for you..
    Lefty Lou


  24. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Anna Fans,
    Go to HSN, then crafts, then 410-772 and the MINC will be there with a demo, even if it says sold out. Info is there. Have fun. Not in my budget, hospital bills await…HELLO Anna and Georgie, and HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL! Lefty Lou

  25. Rhonda L. P. says:

    Greetings! Happy Mother’s Day Weekend, to ALL!
    Anna, will you be listing the Anniversary Papers again???? I was trying to figure out what OTHER items I wanted to buy, along with the Anniversary Papers….and POOF! They were sold out!! (Boo- Hoo- Hoo!!) I’m SUCH a baby when I don’t get what I want! LOL! If not, I’m sure I’ll live; but not as happily! Hope to see them again soon! Can hardly wait for Monday! Am sooooo anxious to order those Grand Duets Folders! Also, will the set of 16 stamp pads be back? I could only order one or the other when you had them…so I ordered the inks instead! NOW…I need the stamp (ink) pads!
    Your Loving “Problem Child”……
    Rhonda L.P.

    P.S. I have asked before… but perhaps it was too late for you to see the question, and the curiosity is killing me…. Is Georgie a “Rag Doll” Cat? (I’ve been thinking of getting a Rag Doll, because of their calm demeanor. I LOVE big lap cats!!!

  26. Kay Brassfield says:

    I didn’t know what it was either ! Thought I was the only one that didn’t know. If you have a computer you can google it and find some YOUTUBE videos showing what it does. Hope this helps.

  27. Diane L. says:

    Looking forward to Monday and all your wonderful products! Happy Mother’s Day!

  28. Lynne R C says:

    Congrats, Linda Young. Wish you luck using the new machine. I cannot wait to see it in action.

  29. roxanne says:

    i have missed out on plenty of items in the past but they always seem to come around a few months later.
    i can’t believe they can make enough in one run for everyone who wants them!

  30. Ronny says:

    Anna, I was wondering about the extra foil sheets. It says they are sold out and you don’t have them on your list either

  31. roxanne says:

    hi Granny !
    i bet if you watch on monday there will be instructions on the pen. i got it as well and i am itching to learn some new things!
    i had never even heard or foiling before i saw the pen and then anna introduce her minc machine.
    this is going to be a great day of instructions!

  32. sandy says:

    Hi Anna, I am just getting into this
    you have so many amazing items I am looking forward to your show my friend shared her new craft with me and now I am hooked as well. Thanks, Sandy

  33. Mary R. Huff says:

    Sheryl, Thanks for the nice thoughts. We chose not to have kids but my oldest sister had 6 and we had 5 God-children so we’ve been blessed. Happy Mom’s Day to You!

  34. Mary R says:

    Hi Anna,

    After reading your email, I’m so excited! Just 2 days to the hottest crafting show ever! Want to see the Minc in action.

    Also, want to shout out Happy Mother’s Day to ALL Moms and this includes Moms of 4 legged furry pets:)

  35. Linda Valoy says:

    I am also curious about the price of the minc machine. Just left hsn and it’s not on there. Looked everywhere for it. Guess I will have to have more patience. I hope everyone has a wonderful mother’s day Sunday and gets an AG card. I made my mom and mother-in-law a card using the mix and match folders and they were so pretty. Anna I need a kit with flowers only.

  36. Marsha F. Bradbury says:

    Hey Anna I love the Minc Machine, can’t wait. I hope I get a chance to order before Hsn sell out. I do have a question concerning the 12″ Gatefold folders in your video you showed a cutting file, is this available if you don’t have the Explorer? I could really use this because I really don’t have a steady hand . Come on Monday!!!

  37. Ramona Dumas says:

    Added the Minc to my HSN favorites, so I can order as soon as it becomes available. I can’t stand the wait. Loving to embellish, this is beautiful. Thanks, Anna.

  38. Mary R. Huff says:

    Congrats to Linda! Lefty Lou, prayers are being said for u! Anna, thanks for letting us post on your blog, be sure to give us May Birthday Gals a shout out on Monday. I ordered your pretty note cards that was offered in the Princess wardrobe, love them and all of you and your staff of course. Happy Mother’s Day and hugs to Georgie from “Penny”:-)

  39. HollyG says:

    Good Afternoon Miss Anna!

    EVERYTHING looks amazing! Thanks for the shopping list. I’m hoping HSN will have everything in stock! YOU are definitely in demand and for good reason!

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  40. Ashna says:

    Will you be restocking your Lace embossing folders and other beautiful folders with dies this May 11th?

  41. Debbie L says:

    I can’t wait to see the mic machine but right now I’m interested in the foil paper &
    heat pen

  42. Sheryl M. says:

    Congratulations Linda! Hope you enjoy your new foil and glitter machine!
    Even if you don’t have biological children, you are a mother in some way shape or form, influencing someone else’s life for the better!
    Hope this finds you all having a very blessed craftin’ day!
    Thanks Miss Anna and to all of the Anna staff!

  43. Anna R says:

    whew that’s a relief I too have been checking several times per day to the point it’s getting to be an obsession ..in a good way. thanks for the shopping list will be looking forward to purchasing some of these items.

  44. Mary says:

    Hi Anna. So looking forward to seeing you in action on Monday…Have many of your things and hope to add to that collection with all these beautiful ideas you have come up with…..good luck…..

  45. Pat Marsh says:

    Hi Anna, Will you have the 96 pack Foil Stamp Card Layers at the May 11th? Thanks!

  46. Becky Jo Cannon says:

    Thank you Anna! Can’t wait. Congratulations Linda!

  47. Pat Marsh says:

    Hi Anna, Just wanted to thank you for the list of items for May 11th Craft Day. This way I can check prices, flex pay and organize the items I wish to purchase. I add all the items I need to my “Favorite” box and prior to the show, I add them to my Shopping Bag. Enjoy your weekend and see you Sunday night at 11:00 PM!

  48. Arleen Cappatocio says:

    I’m thinking now that maybe some of the other things are held back also and not really sold out? I hope so.

  49. Arleen Cappatocio says:

    Would love the minc, who wouldn’t? I just went on HSN to check it out, love it! While I was there I found that the border stamps and ink pads are sold out. I am soooo bummed, I was absolutely going to get those because I loved the cards. Sure hope there are more of them on the 11th.
    Love you Miss Anna.

  50. GrannyD says:

    Was lucky to pre order the heat wave foil pen BUT again Anna, there are no instructions or examples of how to use this remarkable item. I think it will be fun but I am a dab upset that NOTHING but some minor instructions (ie, load the battery type)are included and this is becoming an alarming trend on the new items Anna, I love you and your products but in order to continue buying them I need to know how to use them…….

  51. Anna Griffin says:

    No it’s not sold out. It is the Today’s Special so it will not be available for purchase until midnight on May 11th.

  52. Debbie Dunn says:

    Congrats Linda !!! I know you are Excited !!!
    I am so Happy for you !!!! Have Fun !!

  53. myrna hartley says:

    Can’t wait to see the minc machine in action, always cutting edge and I love glitter.

    Your AMAZING Anna you never stop designing and creating, love everything you do.


  54. Jan B says:

    I don’t think they are sold out, really. It seems to be HSN’s way of “holding” it till air time, I think, since it is the TS.

  55. Dianne says:

    Is the MINC Machine really sold out or are they just holding it back because it is the TSV on Monday? Hope that is the case because I have checked everyday for the last week 3 to 4 times a day, so I could make sure that I could get one. At least the price if we can get it looks very reasonable. That way I can buy more items!

  56. Jan B says:

    Congrats Linda! Look forward to Monday! I am eager to learn more of what items are included in the Minc auto ship, and the price of the auto ship items.
    I agree with Teggy re: ivory damask storage boxes. Especially for the 12″ folders.
    Thanks again Anna!

  57. Suzan says:

    I totally agree with you, My friend and I were talking about that same thing. Why can’t you bring more product when you know it will sale out sometimes before the shows even start?

  58. Lori Lai says:

    I wish you would have showed a brief demo video of the Minc Machine on your blog. I also noticed that at least two of your items appeared on HSN before May 11th. I was able to get the embossing folders and the pen before May 11th’s airing. I even received my embossing folders already and received free shipping.

  59. Annette J says:

    I can’t wait to see all the wonderful items you are bringing to HSN. Looking forward to shopping. LOVE the shopping list so I can preview items and mark the “must haves”

  60. Rose. Bugai says:

    Hi all,
    Where do you go to see the new products? I went to HSN and put the numbers in and it said, no product found. Someone said they look at them and the price was not bad, but I can’t even get it to show the things to me. Can anyone help me? Thanks Rose

  61. Mewsmomtoo says:

    Congrats to Linda! You are going to have so much fun 🙂 Looking forward to Monday – I didn’t realize it is a 24 hr Craft Day! I think i am actually going to be home all day too, yea!! (Might not be good for my wallet tho’) 😀

  62. Doug G. says:

    Can’t wait for Mon 5/11 and the new Products !!! All my Mother’s Day cards from the Pop-Up Kit have been HUGE successes !!!!

  63. Teggy says:

    Will any of the storage items in Ivory Damask be coming back? I started my storage collection in ivory damask and would like to get more items. Thank you!

  64. Wanda Duso says:

    I cannot wait for Mau 11th and all the Anna Griffin supplies. I truly hope I can get the new minc machine. I am thinking of all I could do and photo mats come to mind!

  65. Jennifer Richards says:

    i can hardly wait for Anna to brighten our lives once again with her beautiful products!

  66. Toni says:

    Perhpas you should take the Grand Duets embossing folders off your list — they appeared last week on HSN and were gone in two days. Inless HSN is hdiding a supply somewhere, we aren’t even going to get to see a demonstration. That happened with several items the last time you appeared and it is becoming a disturbing trend. It is also costing extra – since if you wait to buy something it disappears and you can’t even combine purchases to get a lower shipping rate becaise of up wait to purchase you lose out. Some people don’t have internet and depend on seeing your new items on HSN — lately, unfortunately, a quarter of them never even make it to air time. I think you really need to have a discussion with HSN about the number of items they order and/or keeping a reserve for the day you are on.

  67. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    oops.forgot to mention Ms. Rockefeller has left the building. she did NOT help with the hospital bills!….and Sammie cat says hi to you and Georgie. such exciting craft times make us forget details….

  68. Jackie Ocheltree says:

    Congrats Linda. What about the item number for the extra foil/glitter sheets for the minc and heat pen?

  69. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Already have butterfly dies. Is the Auto Shjp
    new items? Ms. Rockefeller’s hospital bill is a doozy! Gotta make difficult choices these days. Hope Minc is on flex! Love to you and Georgie…..the mending is slow painful going…thanks to all Anna folks who are sending me get well wishes. You are the best! Lefty Lou

  70. TeranceH in Texas says:

    Already created a shopping list, if there are new people out there but at midnight, you can always go out and cancel it in the morning. i never seem to change my mind.

    Already set my DVR for the over night shows.

  71. Kim says:

    Congratulations Linda, you lucky dog!!! enjoy your neat new stash!! Hopefully it will be affordable and I can get one Can’t wait for the airing! LOVE the new stuff Anna, as usual!! Kim

  72. kitty cox says:

    I just check on this , price is not too bad so will get it for sure. sorta wondering if the price will go down any , and it we can get it with the flex pay option . I know I am going to get the auto delivery , I know I will just have to wait until sun night to get it. but I will be ready.+ it will be a perfect ending to Mothers day. First time in my life that my mother is not alive to enjoy her day.
    thank you Anna for an awsome special.

  73. Dorothy Mutafopulos says:

    Everything looks awesome! I just ordered the butterfly dies auto ship when I saw it back in stock. But just saw that the new machine that foils is already sold out wow! So going to have to wait . 🙁

  74. Erin Glee says:

    Yay for Linda Young! Enjoy your new “toy”!
    Thank you for this shopping list, Anna and Co.~ looking forward to Monday!

  75. Linda says:

    Anna happy one of us Linda’s got the big
    prize ‘s but it wasn’t me.
    thanks’ Linda

  76. Dianne says:

    Will we be able to see the prices of these items on sunday? I have so many things I want to purchase but need to have an amount if I have to do without something. LOL I tried putting the item numbers in but won’t let me pull up the things I want yet. If you can give us a heads up when they will be listed that will be great. Don’t want to miss out on anything.

    Looking forward to late sunday evening and monday shopping.

  77. Brenda Porter says:

    WOW!! so is the Minc really already sold out?!! I just got the email from your blog literally 5 minutes ago and it’s already gone! 🙁 Will there be some for Monday to go on and ship? Guess it will be a GREAT product!

  78. Beth in Georgia says:

    I can’t wait, I’m already working on my list! See you very not so bright (midnight) and very early on Monday!
