    We use the Cuttlebug http://www.hsn.com/products/anna-griffin-cuttlebug-machine-with-folders/7170132 to emboss. It is portable and hand cranked. The thickest it will do is 5.5″, but we have 5″ x 7″ embossing folders and 5″ by 12″ embossing folders. If you’re looking for heat foiling, the Minc http://www.hsn.com/products/anna-griffin-minc-6-foil-and-glitter-machine-bundle/7699481 is what we use. As far as embossing other materials, in the Cuttlebug, they would probably need to be pretty thin. You can view all our items on HSN http://www.hsn.com/shop/anna-griffin-crafts-and-sewing/ct-7093?view=all&facet=7093&sort=newest&skip=0&take=60&page=1&scroll=false.

  2. Laura "LA LA" Martinez says:

    I have several stamp pads from AG and have the same problem with color names or lack of. I decided not to order anymore pads; it looks like I have almost every color. I guess I’ll never know for sure : )
    Anna how about putting the names on the ink pads dear. Thanks.

  3. Carol R. says:

    I am glad HSN is having more crafts! I don’t yet have an embossing machine and was wondering if you could suggest a good one?
    I am looking for one that does larger formats (9″ x12″), and perhaps does heat foiling too. I want a larger one that has solid rollers and solid gears, if possible.
    I am also looking for a portable embossing machine that is economical, yet not just tiny items (probably 5×7″ at least), and probably a hand crank machine for both machines?
    I haven’t used one before, although it would *seem* that a hand crank machine would be more durable?
    I want to be able to emboss thin metal sheeting, leather and be able to do paper embossing and die cutting as well, using different thicknesses (plates I suppose?)

    Is there a company that can produce embossing folders for you based on your designs?

    Thanks in advance! I look forward to hearing from others! The embossing machines look far faster and easier than creating textures by hand!

  4. Barbara Ferris says:

    Anna, I just love everything you do! I have been playing with the flip cards and look forward to the sentiment stamp set! Unfortunately I am away on vacation on 8/30. Will have to peek @ HSN thru droid phone a couple times that day, but , I am so sad I will miss your shows!!

  5. Connie Johnson says:

    Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! That stamp set is a MUST HAVE. Can’t wait to get those.

    Love the little blue birdie too.

    Thx, cj

  6. DIANA LARSON says:

    I love the flip cards, and I am looking forward to the 30th. The paper is just lucious. The setiments look fab.

  7. Lisa Z says:

    I purchased some items of Anna’s on the last craft show day on HSN. I love everything about the products – obviously the quality of the dies and paper but right down to the packaging. I used the product for a Mother’s Day card and could not believe the compliments. I actually felt bad – the products from Anna really made it much easier than it looked. I am ready for some fall card making – I think I would love the entire package.

  8. Pam Svobda says:

    Just recieved auto ship on the new flip card. Glad to see the new additions of the stamps and The Festive and Fancy Sentiment Stickers. Can’t wait to play

  9. Sherry Werley says:

    I have been a fan of yours forever. I love everything that has Anna Griffin stamped on it. Thank you for supplying us with wonderful designs and beautiful colors.

  10. Tricia Perry says:

    I love the flip cards!! I missed out in March and can’t wait to see this new set!!! I am quite a junkie now.

  11. Laura B says:

    Aloha Anna,

    I love all your kits and of course this new festive card making kit is fabulous. My daughter is born on Halloween so its a HUGE holiday for us. She is going to flip for this kit!!!! I hope to win it from you but if not I hope to get it on HSN in August when your there! Keep the kits a coming!!!!!!

  12. Debra Wisniewski says:

    Anna, I’m about 3 weeks away from having enough money saved to buy my very first embossing machine and I have decided on the Anna Griffin Gold one!

    Do all your embossing folders work with your machine? I do not think I will use it alot for cards but this 57 yr old has gotten big into mixed media art and thought embossed papers would be neat to try incorporating into my mixed media canvases.

    I’m not too worried about cutting things as I have a cricut explore air I purchased 6 months ago. Thanks Deb

  13. Lori LeClair says:

    As usual, everything you create is beautiful. I especially love the fantastic flip sentiment stamps. Pick me! Pick me! I will put them to good use making cards for shut ins & cards for our troops.

  14. Barb Sabatini says:

    Just love all of it. I like the idea of the dies, then I have the form for the base card and can then add more of my personal style.

  15. Darlene Haycock says:

    I thought I’ve seen all your cards! Flip cards are new for me. Would love to try them! Can’t wait for August 30! Hope i can win these but will sure to buy then. Love all you do for me for making Beautiful cards! Thank you, Darlene

  16. stephanie regis says:

    Love watching tv with your new merchandise. I’d love to wing and flip the cars over, too! thanks

  17. Judith Miller says:

    Hi Anna, Although I have the Flip Card-making kits, which I love to make, I seem to run out of the sentiments I want to use. I LOVE the idea of using any one I want with the stamp set. I am looking forward to your presentations on August 30.

  18. Anita Sahlen says:

    The stamps are great. Now you are sure to have just the right saying for every card you make!

  19. Sandia Ruiz says:

    Just getting into card making and love it. Received Pretty Paintings card kit as a gift and loved it. I love anything that is Victorian looking and you out do yourself with it. Love it all!!!!

  22. June Estep says:

    Congrats Mary. Wonderful set of cards. I love the flips. Bought the auto ship and the dies. Great design for any sort of card and , the kits are fabulous.

  23. Mary R says:

    Congratulations Mary! I think the Sentiment stamps for the flip dies is genius. Of course, the stickers are coming in at a close .second, As always,I am looking forward to your next show date on HSN.

  24. Sarah Oswald says:

    I love this set and would love to get them. It has a lot going on and great for making cards.

  25. Annetta Ries says:

    Oh my gosh Anna!!! I just wanted to take this opportunity to share with you that every time I buy one of your beautiful card kits, sets or assesories & think I’m done you come out with something more beautifully awesome that I desire with all my heart to have <3. So with out a doubt I desire this one! I'm a nurse & the Director of Staff Development at a psych facility & I make birthday, anniversary, baby & sympathy cards to give to my employees. It's makes them so happy to receive them & they comment they just love my cards & save all of them. It makes me so happy & is my relaxing way to deal with the stress of work to make them for my family, friends & work. It's worth it to give a card from my heart & is worth the cost to give them away! Thank you, thank you, love & God bless. Annetta

  26. Teresa says:

  27. Judy says:

    Oh, Anna, I just love the Flips stamp set – I always run out of the birthday sentiments so this will be perfect!

  28. Debbie McMillen says:

    Good morning, Anna. Your ideas are wonderful. I’m retired so limited budget, but I have a large selection of your products. Just love every tin you create. The stamps are wonderful. Please keep those ideas coming. Please have a great week and waiting to watch you again.

  29. Ellen Day says:

    Love the stamp set…. You have certainly covered all the bases that I could possibly need. I would love to have them and the flip card die set.

  30. HollyG says:

    Hello Miss Anna & Co!

    A big congrats to Mary!

    Anna, the stamps you have created for the flip cards are absolutely brilliant! The colors, the shapes, the papers, the embellishments! Oh AND the dies!!! LOVE!

    Have an amazing weekend!

  31. Cheryl Polevchak says:

    Congrats , Mary !!! I can’t wait till I can order the stamps and dies ! Thank you Team Anna !

  32. Sally Bartlett says:

    The stamps and stickers are both super fantastic. I’m flipping over all the neat goodies.

  33. Kristine says:

    Everything is beautiful. Thank you for all the wonderful products. Anna and her team work so hard. Thank you. Also I really appreciate Anna being on herself every time her products are on HSN. It is a lot of work. Thank you so much.

  34. Jayne Evans says:

    I want BOTH!! The stickers and the stamps!. Can you make a set for traditional (non-flip) cards, too?

  35. Grama Paula says:

    Susie, on Pinterest, there are many many organizing pins. I get lost in them! Search “Scrapbooking Organization”, etc. Happy pinning!

  36. Grama Paula says:

    Eloise, I found a way to cut out a different colored frame with the card die that came with the kit. You just run the frame part half way through the Cuttlebug, then take the die and paper out, turn the paper around in the die to finish cutting the frame out! Run it halfway through again. Done! Different colored frame!

  37. Grama Paula says:

    Yay, Mary Esser! Congratulations! I am super-happy for you. Bet you are so happy today!

  38. Annette J says:

    LOVE the new stamps and will definitely put them on my must have list. Congrats to Mary enjoy your new goodies.

  39. yadyra marrero says:

    Congratulations Mary…
    I cant wait till Aug 30th.. so I can get a few more goodies. THANKS ANNA♡

  40. Audrey Olander says:

    Congratulations, Mary! Have fun! Anna, you mentioned it will be festive next week. You already showed Halloween so it’s gotta be Christmas! Hoping!

  41. Karen says:

    I recently purchased this ink set on HSN and want to label each pad however the name of the ink color is not listed on the ink pad. The colors are listed in the description but I can’t tell which is which. Could you clarify please?
    Anna Griffin® Set of 8 Ink Pads – Fresh Tints

  42. Linda Valoy says:

    Anna since we are on the subject of flip cards, how about making us small flowers that are mirror cut so we can decorate the back of the front frame. It would make the card more beautiful.

  43. Teresa says:

    Congrats MaryE…Enjoy your Anna Goodies….Anna so excited here…..Cant wait to get the Flip it Stamps & double sided Flip it Papers….just when I think of something we need you just create it….Love you & all your things….Thanks for helping us be Creative…See ya Aug 30th.

  44. Eloise Herrman says:

    I’ve bought just about everything you’ve made. I am very happy everything. I think we need a die for each stamped frame to allow us to stamp in a different color than the paper or to cut a foil or glitter frame like the cards that come with the kit. I was disappointed that was not included with the kit.

  45. Elsie Yonamine says:

    I always feel “I can’t wait,” for the next kit, and that’s how I feel now, for sure! I’m never disappointed with your creativity!

  46. Eve Williams says:

    I read… I watch … I buy and I can NOT imagine how you keep topping the next artistry you do!!!!! All that you offer us, make our world so much lovelier …and those are the gift we send to the ones we love.. I thank you for All that you do!!

  47. Susie rhoades says:

    Need Help… How is the best way to organize and display Anna’s beautiful papers? I find I miss using something super because it’s not where I can see it. Thanks in advance.

  48. Connie Ruiz says:

    Love it and double sided paper. Just got home from Joann’s Craft and fabric store and picked up some Anna Griffin 4×6 and 6×6 paper sooooo excited they now carry Anna!!!!

  49. Anna Griffin says:

    It’s an email that is generated automatically when a pick up is missed. They are still shipping to you from Cricut!

  53. Bob H says:

    Hello, if you have a minute, could you determine if the festooned frames autoship will be delayed until 11/21? I called HSN but they couldn’t tell me anything. I appreciate your help; when they do arrive, I will be even more enthusiastic about getting to use them. BTW, I was very nice to them when I called as I don’t want to be kicked out of the club!

  54. Barbara F. Smith of Crofton says:

    I use a ton of thank you cards and I was scraping together what I could by the end of my kids school year. Love being able to create what I need! Thank you, looking forward to it!

  57. Bev L says:

    The flip card set and the sentiment stamps are both awesome. That would really round out my card making. Can’t wait til Aug. 30.

  58. Mary R. Huff says:

    From one Mary to another Mary, congrats. I almost thought I won. Anna, I hope I can finally buy a set of these Flip cards without the dyes, easier on my fixed income. Several of us hinted the last time:-) Again, love all your work and wouldn’t know what to do without you and your team.

  59. Joee Balestrieri says:
