Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are still enjoying a restful holiday. We didn’t want to miss a beat on our Tuesday sneak peeks, because there are so many new things coming up on HSN January 21st!

We also wanted to be sure to let you know the show times for January 21st so you can mark your calendars. We will be live at midnight, 11 a.m., 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST for full hours, and there will be Today’s Special features throughout the day as well. So fun! Now on to the previews…

As part of our 5th “Anna-versary” on HSN, we are excited to bring you a one-time Collector’s Edition offer that will include some of our favorite dies, stamps and and a rainbow of 16 beautiful inks. There are an assortment of 8 cut and emboss dies from the flourish, floral, fretwork and bow bundles, so if you missed out on getting any of these sets or are new to die cutting this is perfect for you!

The Collector’s Edition clear stamp set is a treasure trove of 72 hardware and creativity inspired designs, featuring antique keys, drawer pulls, hinges and all kinds of images for the crafting and sewing enthusiast.

Next are the Romantic Impressions embossing folders and dies. Those of you on autoship from our March TS should be receiving this fourth and final collection very soon if you haven’t already! It includes 16 gorgeous feminine embossing folders and borders, two border dies, one “XOXO” square die and a heart die that coordinates with the Double Hearts folder. These are so pretty and are the perfect complement to the new Juliet Collection.

HSN January 21st “Anna-versary” Preview #2

Hi there!

Are you ready for your second of five sneak peeks leading up to our January 21st shows on HSN? We’ve got three more wonderful items to show you today!

What’s so fun about so many of the collections coming up in 2015 is that your suggestions and your vision are what inspired them. We are always listening and doing everything we can to bring what you dream up to life.

A great example of that is our brand new Best in Show Collection. You wanted a paper crafting kit inspired by Georgie and all of our precious pets, so here it is! These papers and embellishments are full of cute dogs and fancy felines on a fun kraft canvas. Cheerful shades of pink, mint and coral adorn these furry friends and their favorite toys, while darling dots, chevrons, banners and silver foil-stamped treats create a paper project playground for animal lovers. You’re going to have a lot of fun with this one.

Next is one of your favorite items from us with a twist! We created a brand new color palette of Metallic Layers cardstock that includes 120 5×7 sheets (10 each of 12 colors). This gorgeous collection was designed to pair perfectly with the January 21st Today’s Special that we are just dying to tell you all about…

Last up is the Cricut Shower Soirees Cartridge, which some of you received as an autoship from the Cricut Explore launch earlier this year. Whether you are throwing a baby shower or a party for the bride-to-be, this collection will help you create everything from the invitations to the decorations: bit.ly/showersoirees


Winning these three items is as easy as commenting below! Just tell us your favorite sneak peek of the week and we’ll draw one lucky name on Friday.

HSN January 21st Giveaway #1

Hi everyone!

Only six more days until Christmas! Can you believe it? We are as busy as ever getting ready for a whirlwind January that includes a fun trip to Anaheim for CHA, the Atlanta Gift Show and of course the HSN “Anna-versary” shows.

We have an exciting giveaway today, and we’ll also make time for one more sneak peek on Tuesday before we head out for a few days of holiday R&R. I think this is the most entries we’ve ever gotten for our blog giveaways, and it was a toss up for this week’s favorite product. At first it seemed Juliet was the front runner, but the Silver Flourishes and Paisley Patterns also had a strong showing.

Our first winner will be receiving all three of these fabulous collections. That lucky someone is Patty Moore!  Congratulations! We hope this makes your Christmas even merrier.

I posted some festive photos on Instagram a few days ago that I thought you might like to see. First is an angel ornament I still have from my first Christmas. She is always front and center on the tree!

Georgie was happy to oversee all of the decorating and was fascinated by the Christmas lights.

Needless to say, all that hard work wore him out and he needed a cat nap.

Speaking of that little fur ball, one of the brand new collections we’ll preview on Tuesday was inspired by him. I think you’re going to love it. He certainly approves!

Have a wonderful weekend!


HSN January 21st “Anna-versary” Preview #1

Hi everyone!

We are so excited about our upcoming HSN shows on January 21st that we couldn’t wait until after Christmas to kick off the sneak peeks.  They are just that good!

This visit will kick off our 5th anniversary on HSN, which we have appropriately dubbed our “Anna-versary.” That calls for a celebration, right? So, to commemorate 5 wonderful years we’ll have 5 weeks of Tuesday previews and 5 Friday giveaways!

We will also have a very exciting Today’s Special on the 21st that we will reveal the details on throughout the coming weeks. All I can say is it’s a collection for your Cuttlebug like nothing you’ve seen before…

…But more on that later. We’ve got 3 new items to show you today!

First up is a collection that’s arriving just in time for Valentine’s Day!  The Juliet Collection includes 12 romantic patterned papers featuring romantic damasks, elegant floral bouquets and feminine foil-stamped polka dot papers that pair beautifully with die cut doilies. You’ll love layering these darling designs with heartfelt sentiment stickers, three-dimensional paper roses and timeless borders to create the perfect project from Valentine’s Day to her wedding day.  The Juliet Collection will be available on hsn.com at the beginning of January, so you can order this one in plenty of time for February 14th.


You loved the Gold Foil Flourishes collection we debuted back in July, so we decided to create a stunning silver version! As you know if you already own the gold set, more is more with these embellishments. They are so elegant and easy to layer, and we’re giving you 100 of them to play with. I find myself using them on nearly every project I make!




Last up for today are the Paisley Patterns embossing folders and dies. If you signed up for our autoship program back in March, this is the collection you received in October.  If not, now you can purchase this set of embossing folders and dies separately! This collection includes paisley patterns, lattice designs, florals and more with two coordinating border dies. There are also two shape cutting dies in this set as well- a medallion and beautiful butterfly!  http://bit.ly/paisleypatterns




Would you like to win these three items? Each week you can comment on our Tuesday blog post for a chance to win all of the items featured! Just tell us which one is your favorite.

We’ll draw a winner on Friday. Best of luck!
