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!
