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!

Once again, Happy Valentine’s Day to all who are reading this!

Xoxo,

Anna

HSN March 8th, 2017 Sneak Peek 1

Hi there!

We are excited to tell you that the next 24 hour Craft Day on HSN is Wednesday, March 8th! That is just 5 weeks away and we have a lot of exciting new things to preview.

Let’s kick off today’s post with Chameleon Color Tone pens in the Anna Griffin Perfect Palette! We have partnered with the best marker company on the planet to bring you this set of 22 deluxe, double-tipped alcohol markers. These pens have a patented blending chamber so you can go from the palest shade to the most vibrant color all with one pen! Multiply that across our perfect palette and you will have every color imaginable!

The perfect complement to our Chameleon Pens is our Perfect Patterns Coloring Cards and Clear Stamps. These greeting cards are printed with gorgeous botanical designs, on thick ivory card stock and ready to color! The set includes 18 cards & envelopes, 9 extra large clear stamps, a black chalk ink pad, and a stamp mount. Guess what! The stamps are the same designs that are printed on the cards so you can create more designs to color.

Also brand new is this set of Paper Bloom embellishments. These bright, spring paper flowers are incredibly versatile and bring a modern twist to each and every project. With 48 pre-assembled flowers, leaves and stems, you will be able to make 3D card bouquets, embellish packages and more! You will love the color palette too. There are pink, coral, blue and lavender flowers punctuated with tones of greens and gold foil.

We are very happy that you love our new Parchment Layers! These will be back in March along with this brand new Parchment Embellishment Kit! We have included everything you need to create hand embossed vellum butterflies, flowers and hearts to go with the parchment layers.  To make the embossing stand out, we’ve included coordinating foil die cuts to go behind the embellishments and 32 sheets of 5×7 card stock to go behind the layers. Let the ethereal embellishing begin!

Last but not least, we are bringing back the Parchment Tools to go with the embellishments and layers kits. If you missed out on these during the January shows, the set includes an embossing mat, mini scissors, punching tools and tracing tools!

Here is a news update for those of you who purchased our Charming Collage Toppers in January. Many apologies for the incorrect spelling on the 2 sympathy toppers. We can replace these 2 sentiments for you with proof of purchase. You just add adhesive to the sentiment and apply to the die cut topper. Please call our office or send us a private message on Facebook with your address, and we will ship these right out!

It is giveaway time! If you would like to win these new items, tell us which of these is your favorite and why by commenting below and we will draw a winner at random on Friday, February 3rd!

To sweeten the pot and new for 2017… all of our blog winners (from now until October) will be automatically entered to win a trip to the third annual Anna Griffin | Create November 9-12 in Atlanta, Georgia. Do not worry — more details on Create are coming soon!
