HSN September 15th, 2017 Product Preview 1

Hi everyone!

Christmas is coming and getting a head start on your holiday crafting is what our HSN shows on September 15th are all about! Join us for Anna Griffin Elegant Paper Crafting at 10am, 7pm and 10pm (on HSN2) EST. That’s right, there is a brand new live show on HSN2 on September 15th at 10pm! Stay tuned right here for more details.

Let’s start off today with a few items you are going to love for your craft room! We know how much you love to organize, especially in Anna Griffin gold and ivory! This complete custom color storage system in ivory and gold is made exclusively for HSN by industry leader – Deflecto!

First up, we have a set of Deflecto Storage Caddies with the wheeled base. This organizational set also has the ingenious ability to stack, lock together and store in a beautiful way. Each container holds up to 40 pounds (that’s a lot of crafts!). The lids snap tight and are removable. Each caddy has 3 different sized containers! There’s a small, medium and large sized container perfect for all your craft storage needs. Check out the video Deflecto made for their white version. Don’t forget, ours is ivory and gold!

 

The best part of the new Deflecto storage items is the Stack and Go Caddy Wheel Base. This base allows you to lock in your caddies for portable crafting. Imagine being able to roll your supplies around your craft space in the most organized way possible. All you have to do is unlock your caddies and you will have all your favorite supplies organized and ready to craft! Stack everything back on your rolling base and your supplies are back in order, just like your fairy craft-mother would have it.

Next, look at the amazing Decflecto Interlocking Marker Organizers! This 4 5/16″ x 3 11/16″ x 3 15/16″ marker storage container comes as a set of 3 and allows you to store more and more! Whether you have a small space, or your very own craft room, this organizer will make the most of your countertops! What’s great about this container is that it grows as your supplies grow! Each container interlocks with another to create vertical or horizontal storage! It’s also is compatible with the Deflecto Caddy Organizer! You can add all three containers into your organizer.

A few favorite Christmas craft items are making their way back for the September shows. Our Terrific Tags, Stamps and Dies will allow you to create holiday tags for the mountain of presents under the tree! You’ll get 128 printed card stock tags in 4 different shapes, 12 concentric tag dies to create your own tags (or layer these new ones) and 20 clear stamps to create your own tag sentiments just in time for all of your holiday gift giving! We have included everyday designs as well as holiday designs for year round fun! We know these versatile tags are going make the perfect addition to all your present giving!

Our Nearest and Dearest Sticker Library is extensive! You’ll get 2 each of 50 different stickers for anyone and everyone in your life. You’ll get 2 each of 50 different greetings and title stickers for your Mother, Father and Sister! These brightly framed titles, gold foil detail and vibrant colors will make these sentiments pop on all of your projects!

Wow, what a start to September’s shows! Be sure to comment with your favorite this week to enter to win the items and for a chance to attend this year’s Anna Griffin | Create in Atlanta, Georgia! Wouldn’t that be the ultimate prize? See you on Friday!

Bye for now,

Anna

For today’s how to series, we’re getting you started with your Kodak Verité Craft 6 Anna Griffin Edition Printer. Here’s a look at how to set up your new printer, download the App and use the included templates. Let’s get started!

When you open your printer box locate the instruction sheet and 2 ink cartridges. Remove the white material support piece for the back of the printer that is taped to the bottom of the device. This sits behind the printer to support larger items in the craft tray.

Load your ink cartridges as shown on the instruction sheet and power on the printer. Follow the prompts on the device to connect the printer to your wi-fi. Then follow the prompts to print and scan your test page.

Once your printer is connected to your wi-fi, you can print to it from your PC and mobile devices just like a regular printer.

There is a free Kodak Verité App for mobile devices that can be found in the App Store for iOs devices and in the Google Play store for Android devices. Download this App and with your printer powered on and connect to wi-fi, walk through the steps of connecting the mobile device to the printer as prompted in the App.

The App will recognize your Anna Griffin Edition printer and display our card templates on the main screen of the App. Here you can print the greeting cards, photo cards and thank you notes that were shown on HSN. In the App, you can also design your own project, address your envelopes, scan photos and so much more!

Kodak is continuing to work on improvements to the App, and there was a recent App update to allow for more functionality. In mid-August you will be able to modify the Anna Griffin templates on Android tablets. For now, Android tablet users can print the cards as designed on lots of surfaces.

Contact Kodak directly for troubleshooting and questions about your printer.
