March 11, 2014 • Anna Griffin
There are so many new Anna Griffin crafting collections debuting on March 24th that we had to split them into two jam-packed sneak previews! Let’s get right into it for this week, shall we?
First up is something for the fellows. Our For the Boys Die Cuts include a whopping 396 die cut pieces for every sports enthusiast, animal lover or Mr. Fix It in your life. You’ll also find the perfect sentiments inside to match for birthdays, Father’s Day or just wishing him good luck.
Now that we’ve got him covered, we can’t forget about her! All of you autoshippers are already busy crafting away with the All About Her Card Making Kit, but for those of you who missed it (or have to have another!) we’ll have it available separately on March 24th. The kit includes everything you need to create 20 beautifully embellished cards for the special women in your life and the Spring Holidays. It’s a great one to have on hand all year long!
Next up are 3 new Interchangeable Border Punches. These pretty punches will add flair and finesse to borders, frames and layers on your cards and layouts. You are going to love combining these patterns on projects, folding them into pleated rosettes and so much more.
You’ll never search for something to journal on again once you get your hands on our new Totally Tags kit. Use this gorgeous set of 288 tags for journaling, as embellishments on your projects or even as gift tags!
Finally, if you love the elegant old world prints in our Jolie fabric collection, then you are going to love how it looks on paper. The Jolie Designer Kit features vintage toile designs translated for today, and includes cardstock, die cut papers and embellishments galore.
Whew! That’s a lot of sneak peeks. And don’t forget that we are giving all 20 of our brand new crafting items this Friday. All you have to do is click here, like our Facebook page this week, and fill out the entry form for your chance to win.
Next week’s preview is going to be extra exciting, because we’ll finally reveal the 24-Hour Craft Day Today’s Special! It’s all about the Cuttlebug, and I can’t wait to show you.
See you on Friday!

Well Anna, I have decided that I simply don’t have to buy any other
line of craft items. You always have everything I could possibly want or need. I started with you in the early 2000’s and have not quit yet!
I want everything but I know I will need to place my order carefully. Sometimes I get something and then have to go back to HSN to watch the video of what I have bought. I miss some of the presentations and am very glad you have the videos on line. So I keep thinking is it the 24th yet???

Believe it or not…I REALLY DO read every single word in this comment section…sometimes twice! I love seeing what everyone loves best! I hope you will forgive me for getting a bit “long winded”,
when I get started on my “Anna” talk. (HELP! I’ve discovered Anna Griffin, and I can’t shut up!!!!) I’m so excited about the 24th! While waiting for it to get here, I’m excited….but it’s like being able to hear a carnival going on in the neighborhood….and I got left at home, sick; and can’t go till I get well!!!! Can you be excited and depressed at the same time???? LOL!
There are a few items I would like to see come about. One would be a card kit for children and young people, using old fashioned ephemera. Another would be a book of pictures ONLY, of ALL the cards they show on HSN that have been made with the card kits. Many times I have seen ideas shown that are NOT shown on the idea sheet that is sent with the card kit. (One was a card that used a pleated strip of paper, with a strip of color down the center. I don’t know if it was paper or ribbon. But it wasn’t shown in the idea sheet.) I like to look at card books; NOT to copy the CARD…but to use the COMPONENTS in the cards! Anyway, by the time the show is over, I can’t remember all the different IDEAS they used on them! I would also appreciate a “crimper” or a scoring board that would make the crimps or scores at 3/8″ incraments; like the ones in the card kits. All the crimpers and score boards I have seen make the scores or crimps MUCH too small to be folded by large human hands!!!! I would also like it if you could buy INDIVIDUAL paper storage boxes. I LOVE the size that fits 12 X 12 cardstock, and has a lid to keep it clean and dust free! But I only need ONE of the 12 X12 trays, and ONE set of the little open drawer type containers. I like boxes with LIDS to keep things clean! I have bought two sets of the paper organizers already…but HATE spending $45.00 or $50.00 to get ONE MORE box with a lid! I’m sure some of YOU feel the same way.
After this show on the 24th, I want to get my card paid down a bit, and THEN…I want to buy 2 of the pretty chairs Anna has, for my craft room. I have a desk, and about all the storage things I need. But, those pretty chairs will be the icing on the cake! (If you are reading this, Anna, and Co…… PLEASE don’t discontinue those chairs!!!!)
By the way, can anyone tell me HOW or WHERE to order the “papers for guys, (or men) ? If you know…please email me at
RPrice20@neo.rr.com Also would like to know where and how to order the “french collection” of “papers”. Any info would be very much appreciated.
Well, I’ve talked your ears off again, without meaning to! Again, please forgive!
I look forward to reading all your future comments. Thanks for all the insight, (and ideas that some of you have shared) I DO so enjoy reading all the comments! Keep ’em coming!
Sincere good wishes to all! Stay Safe! Keep Crafting!!

So lovely Anna!

Could really use all the great new Anna Griffin items. My husband is having a silent auction at work to raise money for the local Veterans home. They would like crafts. So….I thought what about some beautiful cards. I even joined Facebook, which I have sworn to never do, just to enter your contests. They are that good. Thanks, Anna.

I just love all of your fantastic designs and creations! Thank you!

I almost forgot to mention…My new Cricut Explore came Tuesday. It is sitting in the livingroom floor… UN-OPENED!!!! I am going to wait for my nephew to come and hook it up for me AND…teach me how to USE it! I am almost computer illiterate! I swore I wasn’t going to order one when it was launched last month, (I already have the original, and the Expression…) I figured enough is enough. I wasn’t that impressed with it, UNTIL they said that it comes with lots of “Anna” designs pre-loaded into the machine!!
I couldn’t get to the phone fast enough! I am either nuts…OR simply in love with Anna Griffin designs, to spend a chunk of change like that for an item I may never be able to use to it’s full capacity! This Old Dog MUST learn new tricks!!! I can give one of the others to my neice, studying to be a teacher. (She calls herself a “poor college student!”) LOL! She loves making cards and scrapbooking, and will make good use of it! I love my Cricut, and can’t wait to see if this new one cuts out designs like all of Anna’s Dies! LOVE those dies!!!!
Signing off again! Rhonda

I love all and can not wait to see the rest. I will buy the punches and the tags. The paper is soooo pretty too. The mens stickers are a must buy for my husband and guy friends. Anna you heard use and I thank you for delivering the goods.

Hi Everyone….Like all of you, I’m SOOOOOO excited for the 24th to get here! I can’t figure out how time passes so quickly, yet the days to the 24th are dra-a-a-gg i-i-i ng! Well, I guess it will give us all more time to choose all the goodies we want to buy!
I’m trying to take naps here and there to make the time go faster.
So……..off to dreamland! I can hardly wait to see the next preview!!!
Way to go, Anna!!!! (and crew!)

I can not believe that your products are so beautiful. Every time it see you demo your products, it makes me want to do them right away and then want more. I originally took your kit classes and I found some of them were cha

Anna, you have every right to be super excited and proud of this showcase! And the fabulous prizes are so generous. I’m looking at all the sneak peeks and realizing that you are always thinking outside of the box! How clever of you to create that punch system! That is genious for those of us not only on a budget, but with limited storage space. So much to take in–can’t wait till the big unveil:)

Will these be coming to England? If so any time scale.

Wow what a great new release and giveaway. I sorely need to get organized and with all of your beautiful craft collections and organizers we can all be surrounded by beauty while we create!

Hi Anna; I have the gal cards and the guy cards, but I can’t wait to get the die cuts for the guy cards. Also the long embossing folder so I can use them on scrapbook pages also. The other thing I really want is the brauer (I’m pretty sure I spelled that wrong) and the ink pads. I loved it when you showed us your own personal print shop. I’m hoping the chalkboard stamps will be on the 24th also. Oh well, maybe I just should win them all. Thanks for always giving back to us Anna. Love you and all you do, Arleen

Loving the masculine option. Thanks for listening and responding to your customers.

I would love to win those items. I made an anniversary card out of the men’s kit for my husband and he loved it.

Can’t wait for the 24th! There are so many things I am putting on my list. My husband had surgery and I made him a card from your card kit for the guys. It was a great hit with all the staff and my husband made sure everyone knew I had made it. Thank you for all your wonderful products!
- Posted by: Paula Puckett
Anna I’ve just come to the realization that I no longer need all the pads of cardstock and paper pads in my craft room. I have at least 1 or 2 of anything you could want. Stamps and ink pads, glues, etc.(My husband teases me about having my own little craft store.) In fact, I could clear out everything and stock up on only your card kits! Everything is included in the kit to make beautiful cards! Your prices are very reasonable! My craft room would be so much neater. I am seriously considering making that change. Thank you Anna, for everything!

You always have such beautiful, quality products. Am excited about the 24th!!
- Posted by: ColoradoJane
I pretty much love it all! Anna you are one very gifted lady, and a hard-working one at that! I can only guess at the number of hours you put in on a daily basis to constantly bring us such gorgeous and quality products. And on top of that… you are so generous in the giveaways leading up to your appearance on HSN, something you don’t have to do… but very much appreciated! Love the sneak peaks, and am anxiously awaiting the 24 hour craft day on the 24th (tic-toc goes the clock). Thank you Anna!

How fun & exciting. I feel like I found a new friend! I am looking forward to see all your new products. I am in Hawaii time zone, so already watching to see when I need to be awake! I started with your cards, when I became disabled with a serious health condition. My 1st card I made I gave to one of my medical team, & she loved it! So thank you! Can’t wait to share more and spread the kindness!

Thank you Anna for always giving us more beautiful things! Thank you for the opportunity to win ’em all! We all gotta have them.

Anna, I really need to win your scrapbook furniture. I am sitting at a very small very vintage school desk with no room to work. I have boxes and boxes of your paper kits on top of each other and they are beginning to become squashed. I started crying the other day as I have a huge box of all your Christmas supplies and that box is in real trouble. I have collected almost everything you have every made and have been with you since Sandy Genivese Show. Please help me save my Anna Griffin Addiction. Just love everything you do. Thank you and keep up the good work.
