HSN March 16th Sneak Peek 4

Hi everyone!

We hope after last week’s debut of the Fantastic Flips Card Making Kit Today’s Special it is at the top of your March 16th HSN wish list, and we are excited for another installment of what we are dubbing Fantastic Flips Friday! This exclusive collection will be available in a limited quantity on March 16th, which is why we are giving you all of the details ahead of time.

Before we get into even more of the amazing features of this kit, we have a big giveaway for you! The winner of the Rose Designer Collection, Gracious Giftables Everyday and a $100 HSN gift card to be used toward anything on your crafting wish list is Patricia Hollenbeck! Congratulations!

To recap quickly, last week we told you that the Today’s Special was all about flip cards and that you would be making 60 cards with the 520 pieces and 14 dies in this kit. It includes all kinds of things you’ve been asking us for – A6 sized cards, larger envelopes, smaller embellishments in a variety of colors and more. Today we are going to talk more about the dies in the kit and how they will make your cards even more beautiful in the flipping!

There are two large card dies in the kit that will cut and score your cardstock as a flip card. The 2 die shapes have 2 different styles of frames on the front, a bubble and a truncated rectangle. We have even included an extra long rubber cutting mat for use with the dies. In the card kit you will find a rainbow of double-sided cardstock for you to cut into flip cards. When you have used all of the paper this kit keeps on giving, because you can use any of your favorite cardstock with these dies! Just cut it to 5.75 x 9.625 and run through your die cutting machine with extra long 12” plates.

There are also 12 smaller embellishment dies for decorating, including butterflies, flourishes, frames and more. They are really fun to cut in multiples for adorning the outside of your cards or decorating the flip window!


Speaking of decorating your cards, the frame on the front is where you will concentrate your embellishments. We have designed 3 different styles of outer greetings: the large sticker sentiments that go inside the frame, the arched message to go on top of the frame and the small circle sentiments that pair perfectly with the flag embellishments that bridge the gap!


We will give another one of these amazing kits away on Tuesday. Who wants to join last week’s winner Audrey to make cards with this set before anyone else? Just comment here and tell us what is making you flip for this Today’s Special so far.

Bye for now!


HSN March 16th Sneak Preview 3

Hi everyone!

We hope you enjoyed your very first look at our Fantastic Flips Card Making Kit Today’s Special on Friday. This March 16th visit is going to be beautiful in the making on another level!

One lucky winner will be the very first person to own this versatile kit that includes over 500 pieces and 14 die cutting dies. You will be a very busy lady starting today, Audrey Olander! Congratulations!

There are two brand new items to unveil today, and we’re curious to see which one you love most. We think it will be a tossup!

Our newest designer kit is here, and it’s called the Rose Collection! What we love most about this collection is the combination of designs grounded in bold black with the perfect pastel palette for spring. You are getting 12 different prints, and we included a cardstock weight for scrapbook backgrounds and card layers as well as a text weight  for pleating, folding and more! The set includes 20 three-dimensional art and title stickers and 50 die cut embellishments. So absolutely stunning!







Next up is an everyday version of our very popular Gracious Giftables collection that you loved using this past Christmas season! We didn’t want to change a good thing, so you’ll receive 24 of the same four gift card holder styles in our newest everyday patterns, along with tags, acetate bands, ribbons, paper bows and embellishments for decorating. These are perfect for gift giving all year long!






Lastly, we wanted to remind anyone who may have missed our 18 Month Planner on HSN in January that it is back in stock! Click here to purchase yours today and stay organized through the summer of 2017!



If you’d like to win the Rose Designer Collection and the Everyday Gracious Giftables, comment below and tell us your favorite of the two! How about we sweeten the pot a little bit by throwing in a $100 HSN gift card? That sounds like fun! We will draw a winner on Friday, which we are now calling “Fantastic Flips Friday” because you’ll get another sneak peek at the Today’s Special for March 16th!

This week we are going to dive even further into the Fantastic Flips kit and show you how to make a card using the double-sided cardstock and dies. We’ll also let you in on even more features and benefits inside this beautiful box. Can’t wait!

See you then,

HSN March 16th Sneak Peek 1

Hi everyone!

It’s time to mark your calendars and get excited about our next shows on HSN Wednesday, March 16th! We will be on at 12 a.m. (midnight), 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST for full hours, but you’ll want to stay and craft with us all day long once you see the incredible Today’s Special we have to offer! You are going to flip when you see this one…


We are going to change up the sneak peeks slightly this time, so pay close attention here! Every Tuesday we will preview brand new products for March 16th here on the blog, and on Fridays it will be all about the Today’s Special for four straight weeks! We want you to see and hear everything you need to know about this set, so we are dedicating Fridays to blog posts about this amazing new item.

Of course we will be giving things away during all these previews as well. Let’s jump right in with two brand new products, shall we?

The year of Anna Griffin product sequels continues with the second installment of our Vintage Collage Card Toppers! This new set includes 117 “one and done” card toppers that will be the finishing touch to any card base. This time we’ve added new sentiments for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, weddings and babies along with lots of other card sending occasions. It doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or seasoned paper crafter, these are so great to have on hand for those last minute cards!

The next product is the best sticker kit ever! We have taken all of our favorite cutting die designs and transformed them into readymade stickers from our glitter paper. These Glitter Stickers include 90 frames, flourishes, trellises, butterflies and medallions for you to peel, stick and layer to your heart’s content. We will never get enough of these!


If you’d like to win these two items, comment below and tell us your favorite. We will draw a winner at random on Friday, where you will also get your first look at the amazing Today’s Special for March 16th! Any guesses as to what it could be?
