    Looks like so much fun. How do we find out about the next Create event?
    I love my Maker and would also like to get your ‘ package’ that went with th a Maker you sell. Thanks.
    I love my card kits, too!!!

  2. Anne with an "e" says:

    Good morning!
    Enjoyed your shows this weekend, of course! Can’t believe you had an event on Sunday – do you ever get a chance to sit down, put your feet up, and relax? (I’m not sure I wish for that, though, as I’m one of the beneficiaries of your hard work, and that of your staff!)
    Best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving, all!
    Regards, Anne

  3. Mrs. A says:

    Happy Thanksgiving, Anna! 2017 has been a remarkable year for all who craft as members of the HSN and Anna Griffin family. My favs this year are Cricut Maker, all the wonderful cut-emboss dies, the Window card kits, and Acetate Layers. For 2018, I would like to see an AG Lap Desk.

  4. Angel Cyr says:

    Never, received any reply back — to my question, asked. Will just take a chance that this item could only be nothing less, than perfect, because of the ” Anna Griffin ” name — that appears, on it. I own many Martha Stewart Punches and got to thinking, after my question asked … I Do Own This Type Of Punch, quite a few, actually — just don’t own any, exactly like this, as these have templates to make many different designs, which should actually be quite a bit of fun. Think, that I have a trick or two, up my sleeve, also — to make these designs look, completely different and possibly, almost unrecognizable. I Love To Think Of Different Ways To Use Things !!! … It Gives, So Much Bang For Your Buck !!! Should, I create a
    ” Masterpiece ” — I’ll make sure to send it your way !

  5. Bobette Larsen says:

    I really like the boxwood letter with the added flowers and butterflies. Is this available in Design Space at this time?

  6. Shari Shafii says:

  8. Rhonda Roumph says:

    Congrat’s to Ramona !! Grama Pei, You are famous, Anna mentioned you on National TV this morning, I am sure you were watching, so cool, and Thanks to your great idea I purchased those awesome Valentines Heart dies and I also got the French Fan dies and the Valentines Dresden Emb. Can’t wait to start working on some Valentines day cards. ALSO, Just wondering, the ladies that have your picture next to your name when you post, can you tell me how you did that? I think that is cool to see what everyone looks like, especially someone like me who will never have a chance to meet any of you in person. Also, my other question well never mind I will leave it there and just say have a nice weekend Grifinities!!

  33. Linda Christiansen says:

    Congratulations to all the winners of the drawings this year! I’m enjoying shows today & have already ordered your valentine cards goodies! Yay!

    Anna, I have been making Christmas Crackers (an English tradition) and wondered if you would make dies & embellishments for them next year perhaps?
    There are a lot of YouTube videos on making them, but i think you could add the perfect “Anna” design touches.
    Also maybe dies & embellishments for May baskets / tussie mussies. ( would fan dies work for those?)

    Thank you for everything. Wishing everyone safe & happy holidays.

  34. Angel Cyr says:

    Question, for The Griffinites !!! Does, anyone own Anna’s Stamping Punches, that are on clearance for $ 34.95 / Free S/H ? I, own well over 100 Martha Stewart Punches, but they are different, from this type shown. Can anyone tell me of your wonderful experience using these Punches, along with stamps and templates. Has anyone made any Handmade Masterpiece Greeting Cards, using these punches ?


  35. tinker says:

    would love to have that new cricut maker. my crafting friends, God bless y’all’s Thanksgiving & Christmas season celebrating the birth of Jesus, our Savior.

  42. Lou says:

    I am a 24/7 caregiver and have no way to go anywhere. I do enjoy the presentations and demonstrations and I learn a lot. My Christmas cards this year are from using your 12 inch embossing folders. The folders certainly make cards easier. Thank you, Anna.
