Hi everyone,

We hope you’ve had a great week, and that you are excited for today’s product preview! We are now less than two weeks away from our shows on HSN March 7th. Are you going to be joining us at Midnight, 11am, 12pm, 4pm, 7pm, 8pm and 10pm? Our Craft Day shows are going to be full of new and returning products, and we are excited to create with you! Our Facebook Live with HSN will be the day before, on March 6th at 5:15pm EST.

We hope you had fun during the fast and furious Anna Griffin Super Sale. Everyone loves a sale!  Speaking of goodies, we have two winners for our Alphanumeric Dresden Trims and our new Paper Weaving Kit. Beth Ann Dunlap and SC Johnson you are our two lucky winners!

New for March 7th is Terial Magic. What’s that you ask? It’s a magical fabric spray that turns fabric into a paper-like, fray free surface! You can die cut it, stamp on it, sew it and even print on it. The starch-like effect helps your fabric hold its shape and cut easily, but it’s natural and doesn’t contain sugars or starches! To use just spray to saturate the fabric, then let it dry until it’s slightly damp and iron the fabric to set it. If you want to rid your fabric of Terial Magic, all you have to do is rinse it for 10 seconds, or wash it and it disappears.

Get your Cricut Makers ready to make beautiful projects! We have 7 new Fat Quarter Bundles for you to choose from. Each set contains 6 different, coordinating patterns to work with. Fabric squares measure 18″ by 22″. Aren’t they “sew” fantastic?

The Mini is back, and it is absolutely perfect to use with the Wishful Thinking dies! The smaller dies and embossing folders easily emboss and cut through this little machine! The mini is great for crafting on the go, and easily fits in your craft bag or Deflecto storage!

Two of our favorite sets of embossing folders are returning! Our Letterpress Embossing Folder Matrix includes our Letterpress Spring Folders and our His and Hers Letterpress Folders. What’s great about these folders are the small, repeating designs that can be inked, embossed, debossed and layered. It’s like you have your very own letterpress machine for imprinting inked designs on paper.

One of the best ways to ensure precise cutting is to use the Cuttlebug Magnetic Plates in order to keep all your dies right where you want them! This set of magnetic mats (1, 6″ x 13″ and 1, 6″ x 8″) are going to be sold together during our shows. In order to use these mats use the sandwich (from the bottom): A plate, magnetic mat, B plate, die face up, paper face down and top with a B plate. This ensures that you are not cutting into your mats, and keeps them in great working order.

Our hours are Midnight, 11am, 12pm, 4pm and 7pm, 8pm and 10pm. Luckily we are on twice during the month of March with more crafting on March 14th!

Over 1450 you commented to win our new Fancy French Frame Dies and the new card stock packs. June Estep and Maureen (mollymagri) you are this week’s winners! There was just so much paper, I had to split it into 2! Congratulations!

Last year, we designed a set of Sympathy Stickers to answer the increasing number of requests for cards of encouragement. You loved them and we have brought them back for March 7th along with all of the trimmings that coordinate.

Our new Crosses Cut and Emboss Die Set pairs perfectly with the sentiments to create handmade cards, tags and scrapbook pages for Easter, Condolence and Encouragement cards. Each die in the set has been designed to compliment each other making them easy to mix, match and layer.   

Designed expressly for use with the dies is our Faithful Die Cut Set. Punch and layer vintage ephemera to decorate all of your projects that require a softer touch. All of the pieces are carefully made to wrap and highlight images on sympathy cards. 

Guess what? The Treasury of stamps and dies are back! Along with the Treasury Ink Set, Treasury Embossing Powders, plus the Treasury Cards and layers. This comprehensive library of sentiments and images for all occasions is a one stop shop for all of your crafting needs. You can stamp, cut and layer your way from New Year’s to Christmas with all of the card sending holidays in between!

The Anna Griffin Mini die cutting and embossing machine will be coming back for March 7th and we have loads of them! Have you met Mini?

We like it when all of our crafting tools match. Use the Anna Griffin Heat tool to emboss your stamped images. It is just the thing to add shimmery texture to all things made with the Treasury!

It is time for Fan Mail Friday! This week is especially lovely because of the Valentine love that we received. You have to know how much I appreciate your kind words and lovely works of art! I realized that after we shot the video, that I had left a few on my desk. A special thank you goes to Kathy, Patti, Lois and Agnes for sending these beautiful cards!

Want to win the Crosses Die Set and the Faithful Die Cuts? Comment here on the blog and share who would get the first card you would make with the set. We will draw a winner at random from the blog comments on Friday. Have a great week everyone!
