HSN March 7th 2018 Product Preview 4 + Winner

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?

Anna Griffin- Charlotte Fat Quarter Bundle

Ana Davis- Wildwood Fat Quarter Bundle

Josephine Kimberling- Daydream Fat Quarter Bundle

Katy Tanis- Bwindi Forest Fat Quarter Bundle

Stacy Peterson- Monsters V. Robots Fat Quarter Bundle

Words of Encouragement contains die phrases like: With Sympathy, Xoxo, It’s a Boy, It’s a Girl, You Got This and more! Any time you need to send a kind or encouraging word, this set has just the thing. You will get 30 cutting dies and 3 embossing folders to add gorgeous texture to your words and phrases!

We will also have our Sending Love set! Don’t we all need to send more love? This set is wonderful for letting friends and loved ones know how much you care. Phrases include: You and Me, Dear, Bestie, For My, Friend and many more. You also get 20 cutting dies and 3 folders in this set. You are going to love how versatile this set is!

 

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!

You’re going to love the adhesive wonder that is the Xyron Creative Station. It is the perfect tool for adding adhesive to everything from diecuts to layers.

There are 7 complete bundles in the Make Something You Love Auto Ship, with the first being paper! This set of projects is designed to be all about Valentine’s Day!

Here are some tips and tricks for your MSYL Paper Kit!

  1. ADD MORE: This bundle comes with 15 images plus print then cut flowers, so search through the bundle to find the perfect finishing touch to all of your projects.
  2. MAKE IT YOUR OWN: All of our MSYL projects are fully customizable. Change the size or colors to make a project that is all your own.
  3. HELPFUL TOOLS: A bone folder helps to make a perfectly creased fold. It is great for making perfect rosettes!
  4. CHECK YOUR MAT: The right mat can make all the difference when cutting with your Cricut Maker. Use the “Light Grip” mat for paper and card stock, “Standard Grip” for heavy card stock and glitter paper, and the “Strong Grip” mat for kraft board.
  5. CHANGE MATS: Before cutting, you can move from one mat to another by clicking on the top left corner of the object in design space. You can also move the object around on the mat by clicking on the object and dragging. Use these tricks to get the most cuts out of your materials.

In the auto shipment of the MSYL with Anna Griffin program, there are new images, materials and instructions every 8 weeks, so you can make 2018 the year of creating with your Cricut Maker! Next month you will get the Make Something You Love with Felt – Auto Ship February 2018.
