HSN May 2, 2018 Product Preview 7

Hi everyone,

Can you believe that after today we only have one more product preview before our upcoming shows on HSN May 2nd? We know your calendars are marked for 2am, 11am, 5pm and 9pm, and from the looks of it, you are just as excited as we are!

We received a lot of wonderful feed back about our new 3D Mini Flower Dies, Anna Griffin Mini replacement plates, the French Fan and Fancy Flourish Dies. These lovely items are coming to you, Carole Lewis. Have fun with them!

There have been so many requests for a new Anna Griffin digital cartridge for the Cricut Explore family of machines and the Cricut Maker that we have finally delivered!

Turn your Cricut into a card making machine with our new Window Box Card Digital Cartridge! Now, you can create these 3 dimensional cards, envelopes, embellishments, sentiments and more! Print gorgeous flowers on your home printer and use your Cricut to cut roses, marigolds and geraniums. You’ll get print then cut and drawn sentiments with phrases like, You Are in My Thoughts and Happy Birthday to You. Also included are print then cut sentiment flags with sayings such as Sending Well Wishes, Get Well Soon and Bravo Well Done! Pair these with the included scroll embellishments for cards that are beautiful in the making.

What’s even better? We have two auto ship cartridges! The first one comes in July and it is our Window Frame Card Cartridge. You’ll get the cutting files for the card base, envelope, 4 frames, 10 lovely flowers and 5 sentiment drawing files. Use your favorite papers and your printer to create incredible window frame cards for any occasion you can think of!

The last auto ship in this set is our Window Ledge Card Cartridge that comes in September. With this digital cartridge you will receive the cutting files for the card base, envelope and window frames. You will also get print then cut flowers and sentiments to add to your pretty windows! For the finishing touches, you will receive the cutting files for all of the embellishments like a dog, cat, curtains, awnings and planter boxes. We’re so glad that this beloved kit is now available as a digital cartridge!

We are thrilled to give all three cartridges in this set away! All you have to do is comment below and tell us what you love most about creating with your Cricut and we will draw a winner on Friday.

Bye for now,

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.

The rest of auto shipments are dedicated to materials that we all want to cut with our Cricut machines:

Make Something You Love with Vinyl – Auto Ship April 2018
