  2. Brenda werlinget says:

    You’ve outdone yourself, Anna! I love the fruit stamps with the coordinating dies. The flowers are so beautiful and I can see many uses for them on both my cards and layouts. The ink colors are so vibrant. My favorite though is the return of your 12 by 12 scrapbook with layouts to complete. All of my gal pals are going to be thrilled that they are back. The color of the album is beautiful as are the pages. Can you tell I’m excited with these items. Thank you!

  24. Linda Valoy says:

    Anna, I loved the hsn show today! Liked that it was fast and furious. Seems like more cards were shown. I was thankful that you showed a lot of cards made using the tri-fold folders. I purchased those folders when they first came out but never made many cards with them because I could not find many cards on pinterest using tri-folds.Tell the camera man or lady on hsn they did a good job on the closeups. Going now to replay and make cards. Love HSN , Anna, and Clearance prices.

  25. Cathy Anthony says:

    This is just like you, Anna to create beyond beautiful products for us. I so have to have this.

  26. Annette Johnson says:

    Congrats to Donna enjoy your new products. Can’t wait for the new shows and items that will be here soon.

    KUDOS to Donna, u will have lots of fun as u already know:-)

    Even more KUDOS for a great clearance show Anna and yes I gave in not once but twice!! So now I’ll have the Charlotte paper and more flourishes with even more ideas!!

  28. Maureen Odell says:

    Hi Anna,
    I loved the 2 HSN shows today. The projects you showed were just beautiful. I found 2 products I didn’t have. Thank you for the tutorial.
    I wish there was a tutorial on how to upload a project and the address to send it to. I would love to share.

  29. Charlene Helgoth says:

    This is a great tutorial. I just purchased some new and repeat items from your clearance HSN program. Beautiful ideas and inspiration! Just want to say that my elderly aunts and mother-in-law enjoy the beautiful cards I make for them. It lifts their spirits and makes their days happy knowing I crafted a beautiful card just for them!

  30. Sharon Voge says:

    Every time you introduce new items, I reflect on how I used to complete projects. Embossing by hand with metal plates, measuring paper to use for various pleats–I could go on and on. Today it has become so easy with your products. I love the fact that you’re listening to our needs–male cards, sympathy emblishments, etc. I was going to be really good and save my money for July, but my credit card is on fire as one of your callers stated.

  31. Dianna Lantz says:

    Anna those items are just uplifting with the markers enhancement. Me too wish I could win those markers to bring out the best with my Anna card making kit. Happy Crafting..see you then Thank You.

  32. Julianne says:

    I bought the Christmas Gracious Giftables gift and just loved them. I HAD to buy the cartridge, but haven’t used it yet. Thanks for showing how easy it is!

  33. Susan Thomas says:

    ohhhhhhhh I am loving your new cricut items!
    This little purse gift card holder is beautiful! usually when I’m getting them for last minute gifts I’m just putting the gift card in it’s ugly white envelope in with my beautiful cards… love this card!

    Thank you Anna!

  34. Sandra Griswold says:

    What a great tutorial, lovely card holder Congrats to Donna on her fabulous win. Also the great clearance prices on today’s shows. Thank you..

  35. koalabc/barb says:

    Lovely Cricut ideas with your pretty projects..Thanks Anna for all that you share and create..Fun to learn new crafting..

  36. Jennifer S. says:

    Thanks Anna for all your creativity and beautiful products! I have a question: I cannot find to buy the cutting die, “floral vines-A2” Would you please bring back more cutting dies found in your beautiful card making book? Thanks!

  37. Lin M. says:

    Congratulations Donna!

    Thank you for sharing the Gracious Giftables project! I have this cartridge but haven’t had a chance to use it yet – now I’m inspired!

    I am really hoping you will come out with a Cricut cartridge that includes your window box cards! 🙂

  45. Christy M says:

    I made one of these coin purse giftables for my mom for Mother’s Day. It turned out so cute and everyone just went on and on about it. Mom thought it was so cute she even took it to work to show her friends. Thanks for giving us a way to make all these great things, Anna! I can’t wait for my Pop-Up cartridge to get here. 🙂

  46. Karen says:

    This is a must have! I love it! You are just one giant cache of ideas all wrapped up in a little bitty space. Melissa says ‘Hi Anna’

  47. Marcie Smith says:

    These how-to videos always inspire me. Thanks for doing them. I love my explore and the wonderful cartridges you and cricut have come up with. I use them all the time and everyone is just in awe when they receive something from me from one of your designs and they are so easy to cut and embelish and put together. No one does it better then Anna Griffin!!!

    Anna thank you for the tutorial and great ideas, are so cute!

  52. Debra ewry says:

    I would be on cloud nine with the new Cricut and Anna’s content. I love every product. Anna makes everything is a quality item down to the packaging, if you buy a die you are going to get a mat, not a separate purchase you buy a stamp set you receive an acrylic block . Anna takes care of us !

  53. Sharon says:

    Love the markers!! Will have to DVR shows today, but will be watching in July!! That purse is the cutest!!

  54. Debbie Dunn says:

    Congratulations Donna !!!! Enjoy your Anna Griffin products !!
    Thank You Anna for the Tutorial!!

  55. Stephanie says:

    Congratulations Donna! Sorry it wasn’t me but I was just thinking if you take your markers & color your own paper then use the giftables cartridge you can come up with some very unique giftables! Have fun!

  56. Michele Owens says:

    It is all so lovely. Planned to be home for the hsn program today but ended up in MD office with sweet husband.

  57. Mary Eileen Wagner says:

    Watching today for sure and can’t wait until July 11th. Love all the things above, it makes me want to skip yard work and make cards all day.

  58. Toni says:

    The cricut with Anna’s content is a ‘to die for’ must have! Seriously, everytime I watch Anna using it, a tutorial of creativity literally I hyperventilate …..!! ‘To die for’!!
    One day soon I hope to add it to my growing Anna collection. I just love everything! The giftables are awesome!

  59. Angie Kindig says:

    I need that Cricut with the Anna Griffin content. Hopefully soon! Thanks for the inspiration!

  60. Donna Smith says:
