    Flips and Stickers and Double Sided Paper Oh My … I’m swooning over here and since I was unable to get on the auto ship this past Spring I would be so happy to win this set, I’m almost out of my 1st set and these are gorgeous. Thanks Anna.

  2. BETHANIE says:

    I am so excited about the Christmas Card Kit with the stamps. Every year I try to purchase the Christmas kit and this year it’s a pop up kit with special stamps. I can’t wait to get kit home and start playing around with it.
    I also love the dies that allow you to make your own pop up cards. I can expand my imagination.
    Thank you Anna for your designs & all you work. I really love everything you do. I need a bigger pocketbook!

  3. Rebecca Hall says:

    am super ecstatic and cannot wait to make these cards!!! There is nothing like the tremendous feeling that a person has when a card is especially handmade with love just for them. These are the most festive and Whimsical cards that I’ve ever seen in my life. I will definitely be ready for Christmas as soon as these arrive and just having one of these cards is a fabulous gift in and of itself. Wow!!!!

  4. Nora says:

    Yeah! Finally the Christmas card kit. Love the pop up die assortment. Great to use all our excess products.

  5. Nancy Facer says:

    Love your kits, have been making your pop up cards all summer, love them, would like to win more…….

  6. Karen says:

  7. Jeanne Smith says:

    Hi Anna,
    You are amazing! I just love your style and the cards you create are awesome! I can’t wait to get my hands on this new Christmas card kit! Can you tell that I am excited, that’s putting it mildly! I always LOVE ALL of your cards, I have never seen one that I didn’t like. I am looking forward to the Aug. 30 show on HSN as well (it seems so long away, having to wait 28 more days, and yes, I am counting the days)as whatever else is up your sleeve. Keep up the wonderful work for all of us that have the Anna addiction, or AA! I hope I can win the new card kit, that would be awesome! I have bought 4 of your card kits in the last 2 months, just love them!
    All my best,
    Jeanne C. Smith

  8. Rose says:

    Rec’d the festive flip auto ship and I love it. I am going to make cards for our family reunion raffle. Can’t hardly wait for the August show! God bless Anna.

  9. Holly Hudspeth says:

    Congrats to Sharon. I just ordered the first version of the Flips Dies. Thank you so much for bringing them back Anna. I love those shapes best. Iook forward to getting the Christmas, with the other shapes too. Can’t wait until the 30th. I promised myself I would be ready this Christmas,!

  10. Kim Z says:

    Congratulations Sharon!
    Anna, just bring on the stamps for the flips! I love the opportunity to add to the items I already have! Great work as usual! Thanks Anna!

  11. Connie L Dake says:

    The last two card kits I have received from Anna are already put together and ready to be sent to the special people in my life. I could just not wait, but had to get them made asap!!! Thank you for such beautiful items. Looking forward to the 8/30 show for sure!!!

  12. Kathleen Sawyer says:

    I am able to get my flip cards to lay flat! Yes I do! It does require a bone folder very firmly on All seams on Both sides of the seam/paper. (and a little elbow/finger grease 🙂 ) . A little extra work for these beauties – but they are worth it!

  13. Angela Seaton says:

    Anna Griffin has the greatest card making kits. I would love to know how to get some of the older kits. Anxiously awaiting new products.

  14. Betty Gaughan says:

    Could you let me know please where you purchased your flip cards from please, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much in advance. Betty

  15. Kristine says:

    Everything is beautiful. Hope HSN doesn’t run out. Thank you so much Anna & crew. You all do a great job. You really make all of us happy. Thank you.

  16. Mrs. A says:

    Just opened the new auto-ship Flip Kit. Beautiful! Going to enjoy using the kit and making all the upcoming holiday cards.

    Anna, you’ve mentioned you are a lap-crafter like so many of us. I would love a lap desk made for paper crafting ala Anna Griffin cream and gold with bean bag bottom and a raised edge to keep tools and paper in a rounded edge tray top! What do you think? Thanks always!

  17. Judith Miller says:

    I can’t wait for additional supplies to make more of the flip Christmas cards. Everyone who receives MY Christmas cards always say how beautiful they are. They will be just as thrilled this year if not more so. Looking forward to August 30.

  18. Marcia says:

    Your card kits and papers are the most elegant and sophisticated around. I love that you keep creating new formats.

  19. DEBBY says:

    can not wait till the 30th to see all the new item every time your on it like Xmas waiting to open all the gifts .

  20. annette J says:

    Congrats to Sharon AND Happy Birthday a little bit early Anna….I celebrate my birthday the day before yours….on the 4th. God Bless and thanks for all the wonderful new products/projects.

  21. Jonie Isenberg says:

    Congratulations Sharon! Just can’t wait until the 30th!! It should be a great day!!!

  22. Elaine Golling says:

    Congrats, Sharon! Have a blast playing with the new beauties!

    Love all the new products, Anna!
    Will be watching & buying next month!

  23. Grama Paula says:

    Lorie, I have hears a couple people suggest tiny sticky-backed velcro dots. I tried it once, but couldn’t die-cut the velcro when it was closed together to make it cute, and didnt have tiny dots, so I stopped using it. It DID hold the card shut, however, and the cheapest velcro you could find would be enough, because, if it holds too well, it may pull away from the card during opening. Another idea might be to use repositionable tape- just a small slice or dot of it, perhaps on an element? IF you find something that does work, I hope you share it with us!

  24. Lindar says:

    Very happy for you, Sharon!!! Enjoy your gifts.
    Anxious and excited about the 30th, Anna!!

  25. Mary R. Huff says:

    Congrats to Sharon and Anna all the cards are so pretty. I’m glad to hear the Christmas kits will be out on Aug. 30th, will get a sneak peak? I’ve been making lots of cards but too many sympathy ones. Two friends daughters, only 17 and 27, so sad. Anyway, have a good weekend!

  26. Kathryn C says:

    Thank you, Anna for your generosity and inspiration. Congratulations Sharon on your win!

  27. barbara kirchner says:

    you could put a paper belt thats pretty thats what happened to me to. maybe a ribbon a nd bow?

  28. Cheryl Stone says:

    You mentioned “pop-ups.” My favorite Christmas cards of all time were your pop-up cards. I especially loved the ornaments and red houses. They made the best cards! A package of the colorful ornaments would be a real treasure! The red and green card stock were also stunners. See you Tuesday.

  29. Suzanne Belanger says:

    Anna please please bring the floral impressions kit back. I really really need to get one. It looks so awesome. Pretty pretty please. Thank you.

  30. Anna Griffin says:

    Yes, we have more Christmas kits coming 8/30 and more Christmas products in October.

  31. Joyce Kokay says:

    Love, love, love all the Anna Griffin products. Would love to win all of these; can never have too much. Waiting for Aug. 30.

  32. Joyce Kokay says:

  37. Trudy Faris says:

    You are one lucky lady Sharon. Congrats on winning. I love the stickers for the flip cards. I am still anxiously awaiting my auto ship. I guess it is coming by stagecoach here in Montana.

    Hi Anna and Team,

    I am very excited about August 30th. I miss you between visits. Just received my new box of cards with dies. Soooooo happy. See you soon. Congrats to this weeks winner. I know she will enjoy her new craft supplies.

  40. Gisela says:

    Congratulations Sharon have a great time with your new items.

    Hello Anna I just watched you on the craft channel and will catch the next show in an hour from now. Have a wonderful time while over there and a safe trip back home.

  41. paulette duda says:

    these are great but will you have a separate Christmas kit available.
    Would love to win

  42. Shellie Fontana says:

    CONGRATULATIONS, Sharon Opel! You are Flippin’ lucky, and that’s F’Anna-tastic, I think Griffinites will agree! And, Anna’s always POPPING UP more fun–just like this summer has been the Year of the Sequel for her! I am LOVING her Favorite Flowers II on some remaining ‘original’ Fantastic Flips cards in the kit that included the flip-card cutting die, as well as perfectly measured extra paper, and the embellishment dies! During the hot month of August, I usually stay inside where it’s cool, and make AG Christmas cards. I will probably be finishing them on August 30 when Anna is next on HSN! Thanks for all the stylish inspiration on your wonderful Sneak Peeks, Anna and Griffinites!

  43. Rosie Waldt says:

    The mailman delivered my Festive Flips and I immediately put one together and love it. Question: Do some die cuts have a peel off sticky to remove and some not? I want to make more but not sure about this.

  44. Tammi says:

    Cant wait to see what’s next. Could you share some clear stamps? And more die cuts. I love your dirs.

  45. HollyG says:

    Congrats to Sharon!
    You will most definitely LOVE the quality and uniqueness of this card kit!

    Have a fun and creative weekend everyone!

  46. Anna Griffin says:

    Lorie, when the cards are closed they are not completely flat. It may appear that way in some of our photos, but that’s because the pictures are taken straight on. All of our samples are not flat/staying together.

  47. Anna Griffin says:

    Anyone who comments on the blog between Tuesday and Friday morning before the post is eligible. We choose at random, so it’s taking into account everyone.

  48. Maureen says:

    Congrats to Sharon , guess I have to buy the flip cards I just love them and I incorporate them into scrap booking too can’t wait till August 39 plus kids go back to school so I can get some serious cards made

  49. Becky Jo Cannon says:

    Congratulations Sharon!
    Thanks Anna for continual inspiration with all these beautiful cards! Aloha, Can’t wait to see what “pops up” next!

  50. JD says:

    All of the products are beautiful. Love the double sided papers and the sentiments. I am still making pop up cards with the last set I purchased. Everyone really loves them.

  51. Lorie says:

    Anna have just receive the auto ship of flip cards. I love. The quality is wonderful patterns r out of this world. Wish I could buy more of the same papers.

    I’m having trouble getting the interlocking of the flip card to stay together. I’ve used a bone folding tool, folded forward n backwards but still no luck. My embellishments are not in the way. So please any ideas and help. Looking forward to August show. Thank you for your wonderful designs. I first started using your stamps back in the 70 and I still love the as much today as then. So happy you expanded to new products.

  52. Agatha McCoy says:

    I just received my items from your last show and can’t wait to view all your items from August show

  54. Barbara Mosher says:

    How does one win an Anna Griffin dream? Do I post on Tuesdays, today or what. The only email I get is on Fridays but I think I am either too late or too early. Just need a fighting chance at winning my dream. Can anyone give me some pointers. Oh, so sorry. Congrats Sharon. You are so lucky. I know you must be thrilled to death to be this lucky winner.

  55. Tracey Magner says:

    Congrats to the winner. Beautiful products. For some reason I am not getting my email for Tuesday, only on Fridays? So weird,Anyone else having this problem?? I keep forgetting to go to blog on Tuesday, my memory is awful and then when I see email on Friday annoucing the winner,i get mad at myself for not remembering to check on Tuesday. This just started lately, I always use to get emails on Tuesday and Friday, oh well was just wondering if it was just me.

  56. Judy Pittman says:

    Anna, you are just a “Teaser.” We got that “POP UP” tease you threw out there. So now we have to wait until Tuesday while visions of sugar plums dance in our heads…until Tuesday. Can’t wait.

  57. Christine Hayden says:

    Oh!!!! I’m excited………..Something is going to “Pop Up”!!!! YEA!!!! Congratulations to Sharon, too!

  58. Roberta Bellemare says:
