HSN May 9th 2017 Product Preview 1 + Weekly Craft Wonder 4

Hi everyone!

Today is a big day! We have our first product preview for May 9th’s Craft Day shows on HSN! We want you to know everything that is coming up, and for you to get the inside scoop on all of our new products!

Also, this week is the last week to take part in our National Craft Month celebration and giveaways! Keep those awesome projects coming — we absolutely love seeing them every day along with the positivity and good craft vibes on our Facebook page, Instagram and here!

Let’s jump into today’s product preview!

Today’s items are all about organization. Organizing your cutting dies, your wrapping paper with our Chic Wrap gift wrap cutter and dispenser as well as organizing your crafting supplies with two sizes of storage boxes.

Back by popular demand are our Die Storage Binders! These binders come with clear plastic sleeves and double sided magnet pages to hold all of your dies in place! This notebook is perfect for organizing your dies by collection, holiday or however you would like! These are also available in multiple patterns to match the rest of your Anna Griffin storage items!

You loved our Christmas Chic Wrap, so we brought it back with the prettiest double sided gift wrap just in time for spring! Our partnership with Chic Wrap allows you to wrap presents and store wrapping tools in a cinch! The heavy duty box includes a one of a kind paper trimmer; there’s no need for measuring and attempting to cut straight lines, the trimmer does it for you. The 4 rolls and patterns you will get are spectacular! First, there is our classic Grace White rose print, and on the back a pretty turquoise and white stripe.  Second is a bold lavender hand painted floral with a vivid pink Ikat print on the back. These prints are perfect for birthday gifts, Mother’s Day gifts and everything in between!

Next up is our Craft Room Paper Storage Boxes. This is storage with style! Choose from 5 different Anna Griffin patterns: Amelie Turquoise Floral, Ivory Damask, Camilla Gray floral, Grace Black floral and Grace White floral. This five shelved beauty is perfect for storing your scrapbook paper, stickers and anything else you can think of!

To go along with the paper storage boxes, we have a small multi-drawer storage box to match! The box has 5 pull out drawers made to hold stamps, ribbons, stickers, scrapbooking tools and more. What’s even better is that you get dividers to create the exact size space you need for all your crafting supplies. The 5 patterns available also coordinate with the new Craft Room Storage Boxes.

This week we are going to have 2 winners! Comment below and tell us how our new storage items will help you get organized! We will draw 2 winners at random on Friday.
