HSN May 9th, 2017 Product Preview 5 Winner

Happy Friday, everyone!

We hope that you’ve had a great week, and that you have enjoyed the second to last product preview before our shows on HSN May 9th. We had so many great responses to our Collage Toppers for Him, Charming Collage Toppers, His and Hers Letterpress Folders and Perfect Pattern Cards for Him. Over 1030 of you commented to win these 4 items, and our winner for today is Suzanne Matos. Lucky you! We hope you have a blast creating beautiful projects with these new items.

We have an exciting new crafting video today as well as a few more projects to inspire you!

Our Perfect Patterns for Him Cards and Envelopes have a neutral and masculine palette that perfectly coordinates with  our new Collage Card Toppers for Him. There’s not a single pink card in the deck, but lots of deeper hues with patterned neutrals sprinkled in.

These Collage Toppers for Him provide an easy way to create a card quickly and effortlessly! Multiple vintage themes are included in this set of 96 toppers with sayings like Birthday Wishes, For My Friend and many more.

Our Charming Collage Toppers are an incredible set of 100 already expertly layered diecuts that allow you to make an everyday card in a flash! This set is back from January, and it’s easy to see why it’s an Anna Griffin favorite!

Our His and Hers Letterpress Folders create some of the most endearing embossed patterns you can get! This set of 6 folders is the first autoship from the Letterpress sets that debuted in January. So many of you loved the flamingos, anchors and pineapples designs, and we can’t see what you create with them!

Let’s make a card with your Go Press and Foil Machine! This item was so popular in March, and you can see why! It creates a beautiful letterpressed image with this easy to use heated machine.

We had over 1095 of you comment to win Congratulatory Wishes from our Wishful Thinking Dies, Accordion Folders, the Charlotte Paper Crafting Collection and Impression Mask Set. Audrey Olander you are our winner, chosen at random! Happy Friday! We hope you enjoy these four products and use them to make beautiful things!
