The Scrapbook Super Sale Returns Monday February 1st!

Hi everyone!

We know you are still recovering from our 6th Anniversary visit to HSN on Wednesday! We can’t thank you enough for making our Anniversary on the channel so special. More than 2,500 of you joined us for our viewing party videos and giveaways! Spending the day with you was an absolute blast.

We have even more exciting news this morning. The Anna Griffin Scrapbook Super Sale will take place on Monday, February 1st at 12 p.m. EST! We apologize for the short notice, but given all that we have done since last October, this was the first available date that we could hold it.

If you’ve never shopped one of our Super Sales before, you should know that they are fast, furious and fabulous. It is held online as a flash sale. It’s our special once a year opportunity to offer you a huge selection of Anna Griffin crafting items at unbelievable values, and this time there will be nearly 200 products up for grabs.

Here is a list of frequently asked Super Sale questions. Please read each of these carefully to avoid confusion on sale day! If you have additional questions, comment below and we will do our best to get all of them answered for you.

Why do you have the Anna Griffin Scrapbook Super Sale?
The Super Sale is something that we do each year to say thank you to all of our amazing fans! It’s an exclusive chance to get your hands on discontinued Anna Griffin crafting collections at their absolute lowest prices ever. Many items are first quality excess inventory, but others are returns from customers. Please note that product configurations may vary from original format. All items are sold as is.

When will this year’s Super Sale take place?
The Super Sale begins online, Monday, February 1st at 12:00 p.m. EST and will run through Tuesday, February 2nd at 12 p.m. EST while supplies last. We chose this timing to make sure we have ample customer service on hand, and so our fans on the west coast are able to shop at a decent hour!

Where is the sale hosted?
Just before the sale begins, we will send out an email newsletter with the web store link that you will need to start shopping. We will post the same link on our social media channels. If you are not signed up for our email newsletter, visit www.annagriffin.com and enter your email address at the bottom of our home page in the box provided.

What do I need to do to participate?
To participate in the sale, you will need an Amazon account and a valid form of payment. If you are not registered for a free Amazon account, click here: http://bit.ly/amazonsignup. You can set up your billing address, shipping address and form of payment in advance so checkout is a breeze on sale day!

Why do I need an Amazon account?
We decided to transition to Amazon last year to help the sale run more smoothly. We made the switch because Amazon handles flash sales each and every day. This year Amazon has partnered with Shopify to bring us an even better Super Sale experience.

What are the shipping charges associated with my purchases?
NOTE: THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN LAST YEAR. We are offering free shipping on all orders over $75. Orders under $75 will incur a flat rate shipping charge of $6.95.  Please do not place multiple orders!

What if I have Amazon Prime? Will my order ship free?

Amazon Prime customers are not eligible for free shipping during the sale. The same shipping charge of $6.95 will apply for orders under $75.

What service do you use to ship my items?

NOTE: THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN LAST YEAR. We will ship all Super Sale orders via FedEx ground to ensure timely delivery and up-to-date tracking information.

I participated in the sale last year, and items were removed from my cart before I had a chance to purchase. How can I avoid this?
Unfortunately many of the items featured in the sale are available in very limited quantities. If you place one of these items in your cart and continue shopping, the item may sell out during that time and will consequently be removed from your cart. The Super Sale follows the same rules as the Amazon.com site, where items must be purchased and checkout must be completed before that item is reserved.

Do you ship internationally for the Super Sale?
We do not. Items may only be purchased by customers in the U.S.

Will I receive a free gift with my purchase?
A free gift is included for orders over $50 or more. Limit one free gift per customer. The free gift cannot be returned or exchanged.

Can I make returns?
Items purchased in the Super Sale cannot be returned or exchanged for any reason. Please note that product configurations may vary from original format.

Happy shopping!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the last sneak peek of our 6th Anniversary shows on HSN next Tuesday, January 26th. Your excitement about all of these new products is contagious, and we can’t wait to kick off the best anniversary party HSN has ever seen! Once again our hours are 2 a.m., 10 a.m., 5 p.m, 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. EST. We hope you will be with us all day long!

Today’s winner will receive the gold Crop A Dile from We R Memory Keepers, the Anna Griffin Rollagraph stamper and our new Paper Tricks II embossing folders. Congrats to Deborah Pery!

Don’t forget to join the Facebook viewing party for a day full of more giveaways on the 26th.  We are thinking about giving away about 30 items if that’s alright with you…ha!

Our final three items are all absolutely fabulous, and two of them will be on autoship. If you are new to autoship, think of it like Christmas morning but all year long! Brand new Anna Griffin crafting items show up on your doorstep every other month, and you get to enjoy them before anyone else. Now for the sneak peeks!

We’ve had countless hours of fun with our Decorative Designs Coloring Books, and now we have a fabulous set of Watercolor Pencils for you to use with them! This collection includes 24 colors that can be used to create stunning ombre effects on your coloring pages. They are a contingency for January 26th so you may not see them on air, but you can order them on hsn.com!

We saved one special preview for last, because we think it’s the most beautiful set of cutting dies we have created to date! The Ornamental Frame Dies for Cuttlebug include 9 designs for cutting and embossing, and are meant to coordinate with the Metallic and Vellum Layers we previewed on Tuesday. The larger imagery makes a showstopping card background, and the smaller frame inserts are perfect for mixing, matching and layering. These dies will be on air during 4 of our shows on January 26th, and you will love seeing all of the projects we created with them.

The Ornamental Frame Dies are only available on autoship, and there are a limited amount of them! You can cancel the autoship at anytime, but who would want to do that? The designs get even more spectacular with each new set. First are the Baroque Frame Dies in May, then the Festooned Frame Dies in July and finally the Beribboned Frame Dies in September.

Watch Anna Griffin on The Craft Channel in the U.K. Starting January 28th!

Hi everyone! We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog posts to bring you a very special announcement for our friends “across the pond!”

If you haven’t heard the news, Anna Griffin Elegant Paper Crafting has a new home in the U.K. on The Craft Channel. We made the move after 11 years on QVC UK to a brand new channel dedicated to Crafts! We are so excited to be working with an amazingly creative group of people that launched this new channel in September of last year.

We now have a weekly two hour craft show every Thursday morning from 10am to 12pm BST with a repeat on Sunday. Each week we will be entertaining, inspiring and educating you on all Anna Griffin products. This makes The Craft Channel the largest single retailer of our products in the U.K.!

The Craft Channel has a brand new home on Sky Channel 679 and on Freesat 818. You can even stream the channel live online from anywhere in the world by clicking here! Orders ship in the UK only within 3-4 working days.

My single most favorite part about this is that we can finally offer ALL of our new items to the UK audience. We are launching things that have never been available before in the UK! They have our coloring books, watercolor pencils, ink pads, our how to books and they will even have all of the Cricut Explore Air products later this Spring.

To tide you over until the exciting launch next week, we thought you’d enjoy a behind the scenes peek at our visit to London this past December. We filmed hours and hours of paper crafting inspiration for you! I am sure you were wondering if it would be live, but there is just no way to do that with our busy schedule. Each show will have new items mixed in to keep you watching and we will be offering all of the new 2016 items plus best selling kits that are back in stock. I think we’ve got you covered!

What do you think? Wish us luck!

Bye for now!
Anna
