HSN March 8th, 2017 Sneak Peek 4

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Sneak Peek 4! The 24 hour Craft Day on HSN is almost here and we will be live at midnight, 11am-1pm, 4pm, 7pm and 8pm. We’re excited to show you today’s post and all the shiny new items! Were any of you right in guessing what we would have on today’s post from our clue on Friday? Let’s find out below!

Did you get our Deco Foil Christmas kit last season? If so, you know that Deco Foil makes incredible metallic finishes on die cuts of all shapes and sizes without heat or machinery. For March 8th, we have the Deco Foil in everyday colors! You’ll get 8 sheets of adhesive and 5 rolls of glorious foil colors like purple, turquoise, bright green, pink and yellow! All you have to do is die cut a design out of the Deco Foil adhesive sheet, apply the foil and run it through your embossing machine. Along with the foil, there is an adhesive pen for you to write words and phrases to create your own foil stamped sentiments. Take your die cuts from plain to fabulous with a few cranks of your Cuttlebug!

Speaking of shiny foil, our newest collaboration with Couture Creations is the Go Press and Foil Machine with Foil Stamping Dies! This is a personal size foil stamp machine that allows you to achieve professional foil stamped designs on all kinds of materials like paper and ribbon. You’ll get the machine, a silicone surface protector mat, a pick n’ lift 3 in 1 tool, 5 colors of foil in a sampler pack and instructions on perfecting your foil stamping! Also included are 3 foil stamp dies to get you started. Oh my goodness this machine is so much fun!

On March 8th, there will also be extra foil stamp dies that you can purchase. Both decorative designs and sentiments die designs will be available on hsn.com as 2 separate items.

This next new product is truly unique! We have teamed up with American Crafts and their We R brand to bring you the all new Platform Punch and Stamp system. The Platform Punch uses a magnetic base to ensure perfect punches every time! This all inclusive set has 2 magnetic punches, 20 design templates, 1 stamp block with handle, and 2 stamps. This system will allow you to punch or stamp designs in frames, borders and more for all your cards and scrapbook pages.

We had to share the absolutely incredible Valentine cards and gifts that were sent over the last week or so, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Thank you, thank you for making Valentine’s Day truly special and for sharing your amazing talents. It means the world and then some! A special thank you to Lisa Premo for the cookies – everyone loved them!

HSN March 8th, 2017 Sneak Peek 3

Hi everyone,

Happy Valentine’s Day! May your day be filled with love and happiness!

Today’s post is extra sweet and full of more new crafting goodies just for you! We’re going to be on HSN for a 24 hour Craft Day March 8th at midnight, 11am-1pm, 4pm, 5pm, 7pm and 8pm.

Let’s get started on today’s sneak peek! Our Embossed Words Folders are composed of four embossing folders where the typography is the star of the show! The folder art features all the ways to say Mom, Dad, Love and Happy Birthday. The large-scale embossing you will create is perfect for inking and sanding, and makes a unique effect for all your cards and scrapbook pages!

  

Ready for more exclusive embossing? Take a look at our Decorative Scene Embossing Folders! You will get 4 elaborate scene embossing folders that create an entire card front just by embossing the paper. These are begging to be inked or sanded to show off all of the details. These delicate patterns will take your favorite crafting technique to a whole new level!

New for our March 8th shows are our Decorative Edge Border Dies! This set includes 4, ornate 7″ dies that create unique and eye-catching edges or cut out borders for your cards. These can also add incredible dimension to your scrapbook pages. You can even layer the borders together to frame your photos! We have included 2 pieces for each die. The main large die will cut the decorative edge out of a piece of paper and the small outline die will cut the border out altogether. We’ve thought of everything!

Back for our March 8th shows is our incredible Bow Maker Storage box with Ribbon! For those of you who didn’t get the Bow Maker the first time around, you have another chance! This box stores your ribbon and has a clever peg system that helps you make perfect bows from 1 inch all the way up to 9 inches! You’ll get 50 yards of ribbon in 2 widths all in our perfect palette of double faced satin ribbon. The diagram on the top of the box walks you through creating the perfect bow. What’s the best part? You can refill with your favorite ribbon, and make beautiful bows for every season and project!

The Sneak Peeks just keep better and better! We are now half-way through with our previews for March 8th with winners every single week! Want to be our winner this week? Comment below and tell us which of today’s items is your favorite and why. We will draw a winner at random on Friday! Good luck!
