Hi everyone,

Friday is here! Oh my goodness we are so excited to show you the HSN Today’s Special for Tuesday’s shows! Hint, it is something that a lot of you have been asking for! What’s even better? We are giving it (and more) away to 7 lucky blog readers to celebrate our 7th anniversary on HSN! But, first things first! Are you ready to know who has won Tuesday’s giveaway? We had a ton of comments this week, over 1870 to be exact, and our lucky winner is Taunie Snyder ! Congratulations, we’re so excited for you!

Don’t forget to join Anna on HSN TONIGHT at 7pm EST for First Friday with Amy Morrison and Adam Freeman. You can be among the first to see and have next week’s TS and our Fancy Flips Card Making Kit with Dies! Just a reminder, our prime time is back at 8pm EST.

Now, on to the Today’s Special! We proudly introduce to you, our Wishful Thinking Cutting Die and Embossing Folder Set! It’s time to create die cut sentiments for your nearest and dearest! You will enjoy an entire year of small dies perfectly designed for personalization.  The year kicks off with this set of 36 cutting dies and 6 embossing folder borders.

Each set contains the occasions and holidays specific to the time of the shipment and we include new people to send cards to. The whole program is a beautiful matrix of mix and match fonts and sentiments. Use them alone or combine them to make sentences like Happy 50th Birthday Mom, or Happy Mother’s Day to my Daughter. The combinations are endless, and they will help you craft the perfect card for every occasion.

Use the embossing folder borders to add texture and dimension to your diecut words. The small patterns included in every bundle are meant to enhance your cut out. There are dots, swirls and herringbone, just to name a few!

Here is your first look at each of the 4 autoship bundles. All of the autoship sets include 20 cutting dies and 3 embossing folders.

·         AutoShip 1:  Congratulatory Wishes (April)


·         Autoship 2:  Words of Encouragement (June)


·         Autoship 3:  Seasonal Wishes (August)


·         Autoship 4:  Sending Love (November)

 

You are going to need a personal embossing and die cutting machine for all of that “wishful thinking!” Coordinate your new Cricut Explore Air 2 with this brand new Cuttlebug Version 3. It is now available in blue, mint, rose and the Anna Griffin branded ivory and gold. Each has silver Cricut | Cuttlebug branding and comes with a starter of set cutting dies, embossing folders and a rubber cutting mat. How adorable are these?
