HSN July 1st Preview 3

Hi friends!

Welcome to the final preview for our upcoming shows on HSN July 1st. Don’t miss three full hours of Anna Griffin paper crafting at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST. We’ll also be on during the kickoff at (12:30 am) and finale (9pm and 11pm) of this 24-Hour Craft Day, so mark your calendars!

Today is all about the Cricut! There is a new machine, a brand new cartridge and some of your favorite image sets will now be available in cartridge form (yes, the monograms too!).

We have 2 new colors of the Explore One! We think of this like buying a car… you need to pick the right model, color and features to suit your crafting needs! The One offers you the same precision cutting as the Explore and Explore Air, but it has one blade/tool carriage. This entry level machine has a price you will love! You’ll have a choice of two new colors that I handpicked- Pink Blossom and Vintage Navy – and this incredible value includes 100 images and 25 projects!

Explore One

If you want the “fully loaded” Cricut experience, the Explore Air is the one for you. This amazing machine is back on HSN July 1st, and this time it comes with Anna’s Garden and Flourish image sets and our brand new Washi Sheets! If you love the look and versatility of washi tape, then you will have a blast cutting these five 12×12 sheets with your Explore and using them for all kinds of unique projects.

Now let’s talk about cartridges! We have a brand new card making cartridge called Lovely Layers that includes folded card designs that you will construct with 3 to 7 concentric layers.  The results are SO breathtakingly beautiful. We’ve also included all occasion sentiments in this set for drawing, so you can make the entire card using your Cricut Explore. There are a total of 84 images!

Last but not least, this HSN show will be your first chance to purchase the Anna’s Lace Cards and Embellishments and Anna’s Decorative Monograms cartridges separately in cartridge form! Many of you have been waiting patiently for this release, and now you can spend the rest of the summer adding these beautiful images and monograms to your projects. Hooray!


We are giving away all of the Cricut content that will be available on July 1st here on the blog this Friday!

HSN July 1st Sneak Peek 2

Hi there!

We’re back for a second look at all of the new items coming up on HSN July 1st. There are 3 fully loaded new product previews so let’s get right to it.

We’re debuting three new adhesive bundles on July 1st! The first is a 3D Foam Adhesive bundle featuring square dots, strips and large sheets of 6”x12” easy cut foam. Next is a set of 6 Double Sided Adhesive rolls in 3 convenient sizes that are great for tearing by hand. Finally there is a special Die Cut Adhesive bundle that will be an answer to your Cuttlebug prayers! It covers your die cut in adhesive smoothly and evenly every single time. Our partner for these private label products is Therm O Web. They are a leader in all things adhesive for sewing and scrapbooking, and they have some really innovative products that lend themselves perfectly to those highly embellished Anna Griffin projects.

Our Metallic Layers collections are a go-to for nearly every project we make, and we have yet another new and improved set for July 1st! We narrowed down our six favorite shades (purple, silver, pink, blue, ivory and gold), and you’ll get 48, 5”x7” folded cards as well as 48 4”x6” layers. The best part? It includes 48 coordinating metallic envelopes!


Next up is a new look for Halloween! Our annual spooky scrapbooking debut is always a favorite of yours. Introducing the Endora Halloween Paper Crafting Kit! You’re getting 24 sheets of bewitching 12×12 cardstock, 4 sheets of die cut 12×12 glitter cardstock and a total of 70 embellishments that will put a spell on your projects.



Lastly, you’ve been asking for a new pop up card kit, and if you can’t tell we have been heeding your requests around here! The Engraved Endearments Pop Up Card Kit is an all occasion kit for him or her. We think you will especially enjoy all of the new masculine elements we included! There are over 280 pieces inside to make 20 cards. You will love it!
