Hi friends,

Can you believe it’s our 11th Product Preview for Craft Day on HSN July 11th? Get ready for our hours of creating at midnight, 1am, 8am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 3pm, 7pm, 8pm and 11pm EST! What a day it will be!

Our 2 lucky winners from Friday’s post about all of the new Cricut vinyl and iron on bundles are: Susan Middleton and Tami J! Congratulations to you both!

We have another Rose Cricut Maker to giveaway! Watch the video to hear all about it!

There’s nothing like the Cricut Maker with its amazing Adaptive Tool System. The Cricut Maker today’s special on HSN has the Knife Blade, Scoring Wheel, Double Scoring Wheel, the Rotary Blade, the Fine Point Blade and the Bonded Fabric Blade so you can create like never before.

Today we’re going to go more in depth about the incredible Scoring Wheel Combo. You’ll get the Single Scoring Wheel and the Double Scoring Wheel. What’s the difference? The Single creates beautiful rosettes and perfect folds for gorgeous projects. The Double allows you to score specialty papers like foil card stock, poster board, acetate without cracking the paper on the fold.

We have stunning papers from Cricut in this Scoring Wheel Materials bundle. We have pastel glitter card stock, foil embossed paper, clear acetate sheets and foil poster board. There’s nothing we love more than pretty papers!

We adore how the Double Scoring Wheel allows you to evenly crease your beautiful specialty papers. Create lovely boxes for all your special gifts, and give them to the ones you love!

We have put together a very special digital cartridge to go along with the Cricut Maker and its’ new Scoring Wheel. Introducing Anna’s Scoring Wheel Tricks which features 46 different folds and cuts to make 3D borders, rosettes and embellishments. With this special image set, you can make curtain folds, rosettes, quilting squares, 3D flowers and more! Here are just a few of our signature, dimensional shapes you will be able to cut and fold.

Check out how we built this scrapbook page using layered pieces from Anna’s Scoring Wheel Tricks! There are so many ways to use this amazing image set!

Now it’s time for our last and largest giveaway! We are thrilled to be able to give you a Rose Cricut Maker with the entire adaptive tool system, the Cricut Scoring Wheel Material bundle plus Anna’s Scoring Wheel Tricks!

Tell us how excited you are in the blog comments, on Facebook and Instagram. What are you going to make with your Maker? On Friday we will announce our winner, chosen at random and we will recap all the awesome items coming your way on July 11th.

Xoxo,

Anna

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.
