We have compiled 120 of our Favorite Christmas Sentiment Stickers to send jolly, cheerful messages to all your Christmas card list! This set includes the best of the best sentiments like Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Warm Christmas Wishes and more.

Our versatile Christmas Say it Anyway Stamps are always a fan favorite for holiday crafting! You’ll get 36 clear stamps to imprint a festive message on the inside or outside of your cards!

Our Christmas Glitter Stickers in red, gold and silver are the perfect accompaniment to all of our holiday crafting items. This set contains large frames, die cuts and accent pieces that add a touch of sparkle to all of your projects.

Our 12 x 12 Christmas Card Stock is essential for traditional Christmas card making and scrapbooking. The 48 sheets can be made into holiday embellishments and table decorations.

We’re so excited to start crafting for the holidays. On Monday, we will have your shopping list, and Wednesday, August 16th is show time!

    Anna, once again my credit card is on fire after yesterday’s shows! Just a couple comments. It must give you great pride and satisfaction to go on Pinterest and see the thousands of cards made with your products, no two the same. And secondly, as I was going through my latest shipment of the window box cards something didn’t seem right. Then it hit me, the little curtain valance is to be put on the OUTSIDE of the window! That is not right! And if you placed it inside the window the wrong side would be facing out. I looked on Pinterest and cards made with your and another company’s dies were the same, with the valance on the outside of the window. I don’t know anyone who hangs curtains on the outside of their windows!

  2. Virginia Procunier says:

    We always love to see what Anna has new, my sister and I get together and share our purchaes from Anna.

  3. Sue Reehal says:

    Thank yuou, love the Dresden Trims. Now all we need is some German glitter, you know the real old fashioned sort that sparkles but also somehow looks like cake crumbs! Hope we get a chance of these trims in the UK.

    Oh my stars!!!! I have every Christmas kit you have made. I absolutely love them. Now you went over the top again with this amazing kit.
    I wanted to share a personal note to you. My daughter passed away almost 2 years ago. Our grand kids now live with us. I was registered for a Scrapbooking retreat 6 months before she died. My family forced me to go. I took every card kit I had and made over 400 cards. They were only your kits. You helped my time of grieving. I hardly slept. I put my headphones on, put on movies and made cards. I can’t thank you enough that your kits saved me. I have more kits to do. I can’t seem to get enough….you are my very special angel!

    shows on HSN. I love going back & reviewing the products & your demonstrations.
    Looking forward to meeting you & your staff @ Anna Griffin Create in November !

  35. Kristi W. says:

    I planned on making some cards with the Vintage Colored Deco Flock kit however HSN sent me the original colors which I already have. Since the Vintage kit is sold out an exchange was not a possibility. I’m fed up with HSN’s handling of Anna Griffin products. This isn’t the first time I’ve received the wrong item. HSN should be more knowledgeable about products that are exclusive to them.

  36. Mattie M. Thompson says:

    Christmas, my favorite time of the year. Your beautiful craft creations will bring joy to all be holders.

  37. Betty Lawton says:

    I can’t wait for Aug 16th. I love the all the ways you crafts are interchangeable. Love the Christmas goodies.

  38. Elaine Kapalin says:

    All so beautiful especially the blue poinsettia! Although it is fun to see you and feature your products on hsn, I think going to a store anytime to purchase would be ideal for crafters instead of all the waiting.

  39. Sandy Christman says:

    I love this die and now that I have received my flocking I can make a card like this. So looking forward to the the 16th for all the wonderful items you will be showing.

  40. Jeannie B. says:

One friend said, “You KNOW it’s Christmas when YOUR card arrives!” LOL! So, thank you, Anna! Thank you for making even more cherished Christmas memories for me and my loved ones!

  41. Suzanne Merica says:
