I am just getting started with your items and am LOVE! I make Christmas cards and am on the autoship cards from hsn. (love them too). I got the cricut explore but am lost on how to get your designs that came with the bundle. Any help? When I click on your designs, it tells me that it can’t be purchased yet. I purchased the monthly fee for all the designs. Any help on finding yours?
Thanks for all the wonderful projects,
Theresa Reist (homeschooling mother of 9)

Congratulations to Kristi! I bet that made her day!
I got to watch one of the shows on QVCUK. It was great, as usual. Can’t wait until the 24th. I’m actually thinking about joining Facebook just so I can be entered in these contests.
Wish you all the best, Anna. Hope you got back to the States safely.
Kind regards from Jarrettsville, Maryland

Thank you SO much for bringing us some of your goodies to QVC on Friday. And a big special ‘thank you’ for the scrapbooks: have been desperate for another one, so the three mini ones were just an absolute bonus. I can’t wait to get my hands on everything (and I mean just about everything you brought!!!) On the last spot it was mentioned you will be with us again on 15 April. Bring it on!!!!!

Looking forward to seeing you on HSN again Anna! Thanks for all the wonderful products you make!

I entered and shared on FB. Been talking up the explore with my crafty friends since last month’s show. Now I’m glad I waited so long to get an electronic die cutter-I’ve been waiting for this one.

Anna, Anna, Anna!!! My Explore did not arrive as I had hoped but all the accessories that I ordered did. I thought, I can wait until Monday, I waited this long…silly me, MAJOR SNOW AND ICE Storm to begin Sunday and snow over a foot on Monday. Not sure the UPS driver will make it. Explore’s software site appeared but I did not enter it until I had the little darling right next to me to practice as I was being taught. There are many YouTube videos out there about the new Explore and the comments are just wonderful and the users for the Beta testing could hardly be contained. Hopefully Tuesday will be OK…good luck to all you folks who are in the midst of this awful storm, keep warm, safe and prepared. Make Anna’s cards until the storm is over…as looks now I will be making Christmas Cards!
Anna I hope you got home before all the airports shut down here on the East Coast. Thank you for such wonderful projects to make and welcome home to a frenzy of new Explore Friends!

Hi Anna, I would like to know where to find the additional sleeves for the embossing folder storage box that’s featured on HSN. I can’t seem to find them and I have many of your folders, so I would love to get some. Thanks!

I love Anna Griffin products and have “liked” on Facebook, but I could not enter the contest because it gives the Sweepstakes access to my friends. Why is that necessary?
- Posted by: D~DesignsByDragonfly.blogspot
I’m not sure why I keep clicking on the email notification and coming here since I can’t play along by simply being a blog follower.
All I feel is disappointment when I get here,
While I realize there have been other ways to win other goodies here on the blog this HUGE contest is the one I’m really interested in.
So many great goodies and this week the Explore.
How I would LOVE to win one of these but for now that dream is CRUSHED since I am ONLY just a LOWLY blog follower.
Wishing those of you who can play along good luck.

It was lovely to see you QVC yesterday…. but sad thats its so rarely!
I have recorded all the shows to watch again for more inspiration!
I hope you had a safe journey home!

Is anyone out there having trouble with getting their Cricut Explorer to recognize their “Device?’ Mine will not and therefore I can do nothing with my new Explore. And there is no Cricut Help on the weekend! Very dissappointing. One would think with the “thousands” sold that they would have some sort of help out there for the influx of customers. Anna, please know I LOVE your products and am a big fan, but I expected a bit more than this. If anyone has any ideas, please post and I will check.

Looking forward to the 24th!! Spring is just around the corner:) Your card kits and embellishments are lovely. Wondering if you will ever bring back your purple satin ribbon (think it may have been with All Night Media)–the color was breathtaking and the feel of the satin was silky smooth.

So excited to see all the new stuff and the chance to win. Thank you!

I love everything that you do. Thanks for the chance to win the Explore. My budget at this time does allow for me to get one.

Hi, Anna and Staff- I have been “studying” the promotional picture for your awesome giveaways to try to see the new products that you will be presenting on the 24th. I have picked out so many goodies that I hope to purchase – just wish I could get a close-up! I am not a patient person, and it is hard to wait until your sneak peeks….Sigh! However, I WILL wait until the big reveal. Looking forward to seeing you on the 24th….

I LOVE the new products and can’t wait until the 24th to see what else is on HSN. I just got the auto ship of all about her and can’t believe how beautiful everything is. Best of luck to everyone…anyone who uses Anna Griffin products is a winner! Thanks for creating such beautiful products Anna.

Anna, Thanks so much for all of your beautiful products. I am retired and can only buy a few of your things each time you are on HSN. My birthday is this Friday, March 7th, and I would really like to win one of the giveaways. I just can’t wait until the 24th to see all of the new items. I have marked off the whole day just for HSN. Thanks for givings all of us a chance to win. Good luck everybody.

Dear Anna, Greetings and many thanks from little old England.
Thank you for 3 superb shows and lots of gorgeous products via QVCUK. My daughter and I are so excited as we can barely wait for all of the craft goodies to be delivered. I have to tell you that I really wanted to call in but was too shy.
Thank you again, you bring your fan base so much joy.

After reading other fan’s comments, I too, am not on facebook. It is disappointing that we all can not enter as, I am sure like myself, everyone of us have tons of your fabulous products! It does not keep me from reading each and every blog and slobbering–yes, that’s what I said–as we wait for those months when you appear on HSN!!! And I like to see who the winner’s are–with envy! Keep the goodies coming-as we won’t abandon you for sure!!
