Giveaway #4 and Your September 2nd Shopping List

Hi everyone!

I hope you are getting ready for a very fun (and relaxing) Labor Day weekend. We are busy packing for a trip to sunny Florida for two very exciting shows on HSN!  Make sure and rest up so you’ll be ready to tune in on Tuesday, September 2nd at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.

We’ve got one more winner to announce today, don’t we? A big congratulations to Suzanne Beauregard! We will be sending you a set of our Christmas Arrangements embossing folders and dies along with the Seasonal Soirees Cricut cartridge. Hooray!

Speaking of the Christmas Arrangements bundle, we have a quick crafting tip for this collection. I think the ornament and snowflake border dies in this set look most fabulous when die cut on both sides and then embossed. Just like with our other coordinating embossing folders and dies, you’ll want to die cut first for the prettiest result.

    Love your products, I’m starting on my Christmas cards as we speak, love making all my greeting cards. Can’t wait for the next HSN showing. Keep up the great work.

  2. Mary Marr says:

    I have the die cuts and folders the Lace Set they are on the way, can hardly wait for them to get here! Mary Marr Anna I love your style you are great!

  3. Jeorgette says:

    Can I say how devastated I am that I was ill and missed your show on Sept. 2? What’s worse is that I also missed out on buying your Holiday Metallic Layers item? It sold out within a short amount of time.

    First your Soft Metallics are unavailable and now your Holiday Metallic Layers are out of my reach. Will either of these ever be back again? Yours is the only metallic paper I like the look of. All others look ehhh not so nice. If those are gone forever, are you thinking of releasing any new metallic papers any time soon?

    • Olga says:

      Hi Anna: I am new to all this and am in awe of everything you create. I saw your cuttlebug et al. for the first time on TV last March and finally got one at the start of June. Unfortunately I missed your last show but am keeping a look out for future one. You have the most wonderful stuff. Love it all! Thank you for adding such beauty to the world. Olga

  4. Janet Sams says:

    Hi Anna,

    September 2nd shows were great!! Eagerly awaiting sneak peeks for October 7th show.
    Most especially interested in the Christmas card kit and the potential for my first auto-ship purchase. Good luck to us all on the prizes!! Anna, thank you and take care until we hear from you next…..

    Janet :)

  5. Patti Garcia says:

    Now we all can’t wait for October shows. I also saw the mention of new pet set! Yea that will be on my January list. I hope my new purchases will get here soon. I love how dedicated HSN is to your products. They are always spectacular.

  6. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    For Shawna,
    If you are trying to make the snowflake border, my method, strange maybe, is to first use paper way bigger than the border folder. Keep Washi tape handy to keep everything still while you experiment. I had the same issues as yours. So I took a 5×7 paper and played with it till it worked. It’s all in the size of the border paper. I just kept cutting, turning and holding it up to the light until it matched edges. It took a while, but eventually it HAPPENED! Good luck…Lefty Lou

  7. Dalyce Mangum says:

    Thanks for the wonderful shows.
    I learned so much more about how to use the Elegant Embellishments Cricut Cartridge and the new Christmas folders and die cuts.
    Thank you,Thank you for all your hard work. And all the lovely products you give us.
    Also a big thank you to all of those wonderful people who work with you and help make it possible.

    I don’t know what I am going to do. We will be out of the county the first part of October with little internet access. I will miss your show!!! I will miss your new Christmas things.!!!
    You have influenced my life so much that I would rather stay home and get your products and watch you on HSN than go on a trip. If it had been up to me I would have scheduled it around your show.
    I can DVR your shows. But I can’t get the good prices or the products once they are gone. I am heart broken!!!
    And to think, before I knew about Anna Griffin, I was not even into all this paper crafting. It amazes me how I have been hooked.
    Have fun October 7th. I will be thinking of you.
    Although I won’t be there, I will have fun with all your sneak previews

    Thanks again Anna for everything.

    Dalyce

  8. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Anna,
    Thanks for some new card ideas. Your creative mind never ceases to amaze me… I didn’t really need to add to my collection, but I always do! Love that you added the larger metallic papers: the 5×12 for the longer folders. Now we just need pretty boxes to store the larger plates in. Hmmmmmm.
    See you in October. Now you and Georgie take some time to create new and wonderful things for us to bring home! Always a joy to see you. Love from Lefty Lou and the furry kids.

    • Anna Griffin says:

      That box is coming in January!! Great minds think alike. There’s also a pet collection for January as well. You will love them!

  9. Gertrud says:

    Great seeing you, today! We need more ink stamp pads and metallic papers, please. Hope the 12”X24” cardstock coming in October includes metallic papers. Talk to you soon.

    • Anna Griffin says:

      The 12×24 papers for October are solid core papers in our palette. I wish we could afford to do those metallics in larger sheets, but it’s cost prohibitive.

  10. Linda says:

    Anna I just love every thing my seasonal
    soiree cartridge should be here by Friday
    and the granddaughters will be here this week- end and we are going to have fun
    making thing’s from that cartridge. Thanks’ Linda

  11. Cynthia page says:

    Hi Anna. Can’t wait til tomorrow. Where can I find more sleeves for my embossing folders? Have the storage boxes, but need more sleeves. Thanks

  12. Darlene K says:

    Suzanne I am so sorry that you lost your job. I will put you on my prayer list. I pray you get a good job very soon.
    Anna I love your products so much and watch every time you are on HSN. You are loved by all.
    Also your products are so wonderful and they make me look good. Everyone loves getting my Anna Griffin cards. Hope some day I will win something from you. See you in Sept.
    Darlene/Delray

  13. Terri Cannell says:

    Thanks for the tip. I’m hoping and watching for more Grace embossing folder storage boxes to come back in stock soon. I need them for my great autoship arrivals! :)

  14. Donna Baker says:

    Anna just received my HSN Xmas auto ship bundle and plan on spending Labor Day trying them out. Can’t wait for the show on Tuesday to hunt for new AG treasures!

  15. Mary Jones says:

    Anna,
    Just Love your products ! They are made of high quality, and various traditions in mind. Always something there for everyone ! I have glanced at all the wonderful new products you will be show casing, and I was wondering if you will be bring out Christmas Inks to go along with your new Christmas Sentiment Clear Stamp set ? Can’t wait to watch all the new products, and all the great tips on each show. Take Care !

    Mary

  16. Jo Ann says:

    Who wouldn’t like to win something, ANYTHING, from Anna Griffin. I have a cartridge of Anna’s that I love .Please pick me, pick me!!

  17. Shawna says:

    Anna, I am trying to double cut the snowfall border as you suggest, but am having a very hard time knowing where to line up the second cut so it embosses correctly. Can someone offer a suggestion? Thanks.

  18. Mary says:

    Anna, I want to let you know what you are putting out now about your folders and dies is very helpful in using them. Please keep up these learning tools. Anxious for Tuesday to see you on HSN.

  19. Tammy Dee Ritchie says:

    I would love to win a few goodies. :>) I need a few more embossing folders. It is very therapeutic and relaxing and Anna has done it again.

  20. Carol Henderson says:

    I’m am the unluckiest person in the world (when it comes to winning). I’m lucky that I found Anna Griffin!

  21. Diane says:

    My calendar was marked, Sept 2nd Anna and HSN…a Do Not Disturb warning given to the hubby, this was my day to watch and enjoy a day with Anna…he never asked who Anna was since he’s become familiar with packages arriving to our home from past purchases. Must say, anything on the give away list would be a treat to win and a great gift to receive…

  22. Cindy says:

    I can’t wait to see the new designs! I make my own Christmas cards and recently have started organizing my other Anna stuff to get started. Thanks for all you do Anna! :)

  23. Peggy says:

    Got the list and checking it twice. Also got your beautiful Christmas auto-ship embossing folder set with dies….I cannot believe how beautiful they are. I had to immediately emboss the Christmas tree and then cut it out and the detail was just breath-taking. I’ve never seen this kind of detail before….I was awed by it. Then I had to emboss the wreath embossing folder. Not possible – even more detail…love these soooo much!

  24. Sharon S. says:

    I love Christmas!! I can not wait until Tuesday. I can use all of these but can not buy all at once. Unless I hit the lottery:) Anna you have done another fantastic job. You always have amazed me. Happy Labor Day to all.

  25. Joanne Lowe says:

    Hoping, hoping, HOPING that you will bring back the Fretwork Dies set that sold out so quickly. I discovered Anna Griffin on HSN after this set was on, and I absolutely LOVE it!!! PLEASE bring it back!!! I’d be so very grateful, I’m sure many others would too.

    Thanks so much, I just bought your Lace Trimmings set, can’t wait to use it!!! But please consider bringing the Fretwork Dies set back, I’ve never seen such amazing and unusual dies, and I can just imagine how I’d use them, at least to start… :) I am in awe of your amazing and imaginative artistry, Anna Griffin. Thanks so much,

    Joanne Lowe

  26. RandellynB says:

  27. Lee Grace says:

    Hi Anna, I am very happy for Suzanne, the lucky winner of Giveaway #4!

  31. June says:

    Hi Anna, Like some others I am wondering if there is another TSV from you this year w/auto-ship? Or is this it for the Christmas season? Will be watching Sept. 2nd! I ordered nearly everything last time because of the $9.95 total shipping & handling HSN offered! That was fabulous…..I told my husband I saved him ALOT of money! ; ) Thanks Anna!
    I have been meaning to tell you I think of buying your products as “Cheaper Than Therapy”.
    One more thing…….can you make a kit with Poppies? I am crazy abt them!

    June Schaub

    I have been making Christmas cards now from the Holiday Trimmings card making set from last year which makes them so easy and fun to put together.

  49. Suzanne Beauregard says:

    Thank you Anna for picking my name and thanks to all the followers of the blog for your lovely comments. I am so excited. I have been commenting on blogs for months to win. I needed some good news. I lost my job at the beginning of the year and haven’t found a new one yet. Funds to buy new Anna products have been slim. I can’t wait to get my new products and warch the show on 9/2!

    • Estrella Bianchi says:

      Congratulations.

      Sorry about losing your job. When I interviewed for my present job 15 years ago, I sent a handmade thank you card to the person who interviewed me who was also the one to decide if I would get hired. Years later she told me that the card really stuck in her head when it came down to making the decision. While there were other candidates who were equally qualified, I really think the card pushed me to the top if the list.

      Good luck!

  50. Debby Migues says:

    Love every thing I get from your line .can not wait till tues already have every thing pick out getting. Thank you

  56. Elizabeth Williams says:

    Saw the Chalkboard stamps are back and headed straight to HSN to see if they were available yet. Alas no-t. I missed them the first 2 times-will not let that happen again. I’ll keep checking-the minute they’re available-they will be mine! Love the tip about the border dies and embossing folders.Will try hard to talk “Santa” into getting them for me next Tuesday. I have been a very good girl this year.

  57. Tiffany Ratliff says:

    Just found out that I won’t be available to watch on Sept. 2nd and I am so very unhappy about it! Unfortunately, it is medical related and out of my control…so I hope and pray they don’t run out of the things I want before Sept. 3rd. :(

  58. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Anna,
    I wanted to let you and all of your faithful followers in on a great tip: If you ever have a problem with the Cuttlebug, dies, folders, anything from the Cricut line, get the 800 number from HSN for Provocraft, and they will help you with whatever ails you. Last week, when a couple of your posts (myself included)mentioned having trouble figuring out the Xmas dies and borders set, they walked me through the whole thing. They, like you, are terrific when there is a problem! Thank you Cuttlebug lady, and Anna too! See you next week, Love, Lefty Lou and the furry kids…p.s. I am STILL hopeful my Chanukah kit is on SOMEBODY”S drawing board! xoxo

  59. TamiB says:
