    Hey fellow AG fans…

    Have you rec’d your Fretwork 2 die set yet? If so, did your kit have all the dies??
    Sadly, I only rec’d 2 of the 5 dies!!!!!

    Terrible packaging error on the factory’s part as the padded envelope wasn’t tampered with in any way, but wanted to send out an alert to others.

    Of course, even worse, there’s no inventory for HSN to reship, so even after ordering at 12:01am, lucky me, I don’t have the die set!!! 🙁

    To Anna and Company:
    Any chance you’re going to have this item back in stock at HSN very soon?????
    Please advise.
    Thanks, deborah

  2. Linda says:

    Happy mothers day to all. My daughter came over with family she hook up my explore yes it is a new world like Anna say’s

  3. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    shhhhhh…always check out GENERAL NEW CRAFT ITEMS…they sometimes tuck a new Anna item between other things..put on your Sherlock hat-it’s worth the search…
    good shopping, love from Lefty Lou, major Annaholic…..

  4. JanM says:

    I ordered a few things days before when they were posted on HSN, realizing I would miss the shipping reduction. I was not expecting items to be unavailable online, prior to showing and during the day- you could not even put them in the search and get results. I checked comments here on the blog then facebook. At that point I called automated and was successful in ordering , used flex and reduced shipping. I think most of us were unprepared for the change in procedure by HSN. I feel grateful to have gotten the items I wanted. Anna’s things are so beautiful and desirable to us, I am sorry we feel we have to order early, lest we get the “sold out” message.

  5. Bob H says:

    That is extremely helpful information and it will be my approach next time, as soon as the product numbers are available. Thanks!

  6. Linda Valoy says:

    Yes, please bring the flip card inserts back. Birthday only and mirror images of the flowers would be nice so we can match the flowers on the back of the frames. Loved the show yesterday .had fun crafting with everyone..

  7. Mrs. A says:

    I have to say, my experience with ordering went very well with HSN yesterday. At midnight I got on the phone without a CS rep and just imputed the numbers via the phone directly, and every item went through easily, including the die sets and all the new embossing folders. I ordered every new AG item with the exception of the For Him embossing folders which I purchased last week when they became available as a new arrival at HSN website. I also purchased some other very popular items from other vendors without a hitch.

    I cannot explain why this worked so well for me, but I find all of Anna’s numbers were fine. I keep meticulous records while I shop and note when dual item numbers appear during the show. I plan every purchase before the day begins and never wait for Anna to present. If I think an item will be not to my liking, I will wait for the presentation, but never wait for AG. I also DVR the entire 24 hours and carefully review those recordings. Hope everyone gets what they want.

  8. Anne says:

    Good morning!
    Thank you Anna, and all your team, for the many sleepless hours you spent bringing us more “beautiful in the making”. (I’m commenting here, since I’m not a Facebook fan.) We really appreciate all your hard work; some of the frustration (with HSN’s current policy) that I’ve noticed is certainly due to our love of your creations! Enjoy some well-earned rest today!
    Regards, Anne

  9. Deb J says:

    Wasn’t trashing Queen A. However, who she sells through does reflect on her. The last two times I have ordered AG items on HSN, I have received an order confirmation only to later get an email that they oversold and my order would be delayed or cancelled. It’s not that hard to cut people off when items are sold. They’re getting a lot of disgruntled customers with this practice.

  10. Annette says:

    Somehow I didn’t get any emails from you in regards to any of your sneak peeks for the May 4 show. I will sign back up, but can you double check your system to make sure that I didn’t somehow get on an unsubscribe list? i missed a couple of items because I didn’t have shopping list and hadn’t had a chance to find out if the new items had already been autoshipped to me.

  11. Marie C. says:

    Hi Anna,
    I had search and called HSN about item numbers 479-774 and 474-320 and they don’t have it. Can you tell me if it was sold out or was never placed in their system or if you will bring this back in July?

    Many thanks. I really would like to purchase them. Thanks

  12. Bob H says:

    I’ve had my battle with HSN but not this time. Let’s not trash our Queen A. I think HSN is holding product in response to earlier concerns that products were selling out before everyone had a fair chance to buy. This method isn’t perfect but it does allow everyone more favorable access. Personally, I like it the old way but not at the expense of others. Make more product! Anyway, my question is this, Anna, do u sleep?! You were on your Facebook page quelling the quiet riot so this must be a brutal day for you. Thanks for designing the most magnificent paper crafting supplies yet. And , thanks for keeping your positive focus on your fans!

  13. Jonie Isenberg says:

    The 12″ trimmings dies haven’t come up yet. The $4.95 is on your orders all day. That’s a great deal!!!

  14. Deb J says:

    That’s a little low to offer $4.95 shipping on your whole order when we can’t order everything at once! Assumed the 12″ trimmings dies were already sold out until I came here. Don’t appreciate having to place multiple orders to get everything I want.

  15. Sonja says:

    I can’t find the 12: trimmings cut and emboss dies. I saw Anna’s show this morning. I wish she would show darker paper when she embosses. It is hard to see the design on the light pink paper.

  16. Carolyn H says:

    Limited GB monthly usage & using it to keep searrching for Fretwork 2 as I am not in front of TV. Very disappointed they are playing games. Griffinite no longer. Loyal followers are being treated very poorly. Why not a pre-order for us on her Blog instead of this game. Don’t understand why? They should be happy for the followers. Can’t please everyone.

  17. Connie Johnson says:

    Good news guys…my son prompted me to try another CS rep and she was able to place my order. Now I don’t have to use a whole day of my leave. YIPPEE!

  18. Bob H says:

    I hope not! I called hsn to verify and the csr stated that her info indicates fretwork 2 dies, so I guess I’ll have to hope for the best when my package comes.

  19. Connie Johnson says:

    I stayed up all night, took off the whole day and now I’m told I can’t order it until they get around to posting it and that probably won’t be until her last show. UGH again!

    The least they could do is let us know when it’s going to be posted or shown so I don’t have to waste my whole day waiting and wondering.

  20. Connie Johnson says:

    What is the correct number? I tried to call the rep and was told he couldn’t order it until it appears. UGH!!!!!!!!

  21. Bob H says:

    Thanks for all the tips about ordering items directly from HSN customer service reps. Just be sure to have the item numbers you want! There was no way I could wait all day so I’m glad some of you figured out how to get the orders accepted!

  22. DM says:

    Have been waiting to try to orders items that have the same number. 3 items. When will they be available? I, too, hope this doesn’t continue as well. Pretty fed up!

  23. Marlene Hite says:

    I can’t get several of the new items to come up by the number or the name of the item. I’ve been trying for a couple hours. 🙁

  24. Liz says:

    Was really frustrated that 3 items you could not order because after speaking with Bob hsn customer care person, he advised me that they hold back so all items do not sell out before shows are on. I ordered them from Bob not wanting to wait and risk having the items sold out. I also had to pay an additional $4.95 s&h because they were ordered by phone and not on line. First time this has ever happened and hope it is not going to cintinue.

  25. deborah j.t.m. says:

    Final comment tonight, promise!! 😀

    But wanted to tell everybody that the numbers still won’t show up for me online, however just give them to an HSN CSR and they can find everything, with flex pays, etc.
    Placed my order… really, really glad we have flex pays!! Whoohoo!!

  26. Ami diekemper says:

    Very excited for tomorrow. De stashing for a yard sale (and to make room for new stuff) so guess what will be on ALL day!!!
    Bring on the AG goodies!!!

  27. deborah j.t.m. says:

    I don’t think that’s why, when I click on the link, I still get the “Sorry, this item you’re looking for is not available.” Been that way all day. Pretty sure they just haven’t put the numbers in their system yet. A LOT OF #’s.

  28. Kate K says:

    So disappointed. Put the For Him embossing folders in my cart along with a couple of items this morning.. When I went to check out the embossing folders were removed with one of the other items. Evidently they were already sold out.

  29. deborah j.t.m. says:

    Yeah, HSN is really behind tonight, it’s after 9pm ET and very few of these numbers actually have an item with details listed.
    Guess they don’t want anyone ordering early tonight, saving everything to make sure we watch. lololol

    But the $4.95 total shipping notice is there… so yay for little things. 🙂

  30. Kim Z says:

    I must ask…. What magical hour will the HSN item numbers work that you gave us??? Seriously, what’s up with this?

  31. Gayle says:

    Anna, I’m so excited I am off tomorrow so I can watch you from start to end!!! WooHoo. I also record all your presentations to rewatch. See ya soon ❤️

  32. Sandra Griswold says:

    Just as excited as ever! Hard to narrow my list down. Wish I could afford everything..See you at 2:00 am.

  33. Roxann Higgins says:

    Off work this time for your show. Can’t wait to see some of the demonstrations. Always impressed with what you and your team create. Thanks Anna.

  34. deborah j.t.m. says:

    Had this marked and reminders set since you first told us about it… can’t wait to see your demonstrations, they’re always so creative, which helps me come up with new ideas too!!
    Hoping we have another all you can buy will ship for $4.95, that special can save lots of $$ in shipping charges, which we can spend on more AG products. Win!! Win!!!.

  35. Maggie says:

    Taping all the shows since I have to work!! Cant wait to see all the new items!! Thank you Anna and Staff!!!!

  36. Linda Walker Howard says:

    I am recording the entire day of crafting on HSN, but I am particularly excited to see all of your programming!

  37. Christine Hayden says:

    Can’t wait. Have all my snackies to munch on through the 24 hours……….not going to answer the phone……..LOL

  38. Gayle says:

    Hi Anna- Looking forward to your visit. Will you offer some items from your last visit again? I missed out on the double-sided cardstock and gracious giftables. I didn’t realize they would sell out in 20 minutes.. Love everything.. Thanks for all you do..

  45. Kim Z says:

    YA-HOOOOO!!!! Thanks Anna! I’ll be watching every show and of course all will be saved on my DVR ! I know you will rock as always on HSN! Kim

  46. Vickey says:

    Looking for the “For Him” Embossing Folders…HSN web page says: “We’re sorry the page you are looking for is not available.” I tried using Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

    Hope this can be fixed. Until then, sad face:(

  47. Andrew says:

    I’l be watching from the UK, everything looks just wonderful. I’m enjoying my cricut machine and all the cartridges I got. Have used up most of the flip cards
    so will we soon be able to get extra Ombre card, extra birthday sentiments to go in them to keep on cutting and flipping ??

    Have a great day

  48. Suzann Anderson says:
