This year, my Christmas present to each and every one of you comes in a giant green box tied up with a beautiful red bow. Feast your eyes on the brand new Holiday Trimmings Card Making Kit.
If you’ve purchased our Christmas card kits before, you will be even more in awe of this one than ever before. If you’ve never used an Anna Griffin holiday kit, this is the year to start your tradition! What’s in this giant box of goodies, you ask? Well, you’ll have to stay tuned to all of my upcoming posts for the inside scoop, but trust me…you HAVE to have it!
What’s also really fun is that all of the other holiday items I’ll have for you on HSN are designed to go with the Holiday Trimmings Kit, so let’s get to the previews shall we?
First up are my Christmas Sentiment Clear Stamps. What I love about these is that no matter who you are sending a card to, we’ve created the most perfect, thoughtful message for you to use! Pair the script sentiments with more traditional cards for a beautiful result, or jazz things up with a bright ink color. The possibilities are endless!
Next, pair these stunning stamps with my new Set of 8 Holiday Ink Pads,featuring a festive color palette of red, green, silver and gold that will make your sentiments merry and bright. These two are a match made in holiday heaven!
Now, let’s talk giveaways!
Want to win the Christmas Sentiment Stamps and the new inks? I am changing things up slightly this time around, so pay close attention. Each Tuesday and Friday until September 17th, I will show you something brand new AND give something away! That’s two giveaways each week. AND (yes…there’s more…) very soon I’m going to announce the biggest grand prize giveaway we’ve had to date. Need I say that you should stay tuned?!
So leave a comment here on the blog or on Facebook, telling me how many Christmas Cards you plan to make this year and we will draw the first of many winners on Tuesday!

What a fabulous idea this give away is and all new products besides, sign me up! I’ll be starting my Christmas card project soon, normally I make about 20 -25 cards, time allowing. My friend however has recruited me to help her create 300 cards for our service men/women, we have to recruit others to write in each one and have the cards ready by Dec 1st to ensure our service men/women receive them in time. Awesome idea.

Sorry I have gotten a little behind, I have been busy putting up a few late garden veggies. I always love your videos. I watched one this morning and will catch up with the rest this afternoon. I look forward to seeing all the new goodies you have been busy with.
i look forward to seeing you on HSN on the 17th. I am gearing up to make my Christmas cards and it will have to be soon. I usually make between 25 and 50. I have in the past took orders and made cards for other people. But since I had eye surgery I can not see as we’ll as I used to and I have to have a lot of time to do them. Your kits, tags, embellishments, etc. help me to make quick cards. It is so simple to create beautiful cards. Got to go and catch up on your videos!

Anna, I love your Christmas card making kits. I have purchased 4 or 5 over the last few years, and have a few left but am eagerly awaiting a new set! I have used them myself and I have also made and donated cards to OperationWriteHome.org. This year I will make as many kits as I can afford to buy!

I love all your items,
every single one!

what a response you are getting. It doesn’t surprise me. These are absolutely gorgeous.
I have learned that a home made card is a gift from the heart.
THANK. YOU,, ANNA

Oh Anna, I just purchased your New Winter Wonderland Cricut Cartridge from Cartridges & More. I can’t wait to receive. I have just purchased some things and received today from HSN. I am so excited. I have a life time of pictures to put in albums and I have just started to make cards. One question I have is do you have directions that I can print out or do I need to get from HSN tutorials or YouTube. I have looked all over for hard copies to print. I find I do better sometimes with directions I can put my hands on and read. I will make 30 to 35 cards this year. As the years have went by I have cut my list down. I mostly send to family and a few friends. I am so glad I found you and will check in often to see what is going on. I wont miss your Sept. 17th Show. Thanks so much!

I have ordered at least two of each of your card kits and all my family think I am “wonder woman” because my cards are so fabulous. Of course I have to give credit to you. I plan on ordering several of the new Christmas card kits so I can make at least 100 cards to send out for
Christmas. I make at least 15 each month to send out for birthdays and anniversaries each month. They are just so much fun to make and you get such a fabulous result!

Although I will probably only create 25 Christmas cards this year I use Anna’s card kits to make scrapbook albums. They can be combined effortlessly to make rich pages so elegant that I look like an expert. I have watched my pages morph from humble beginnings to exquisite creations.

Anna, I love your products. Last year I ordered two of your Christmas card kits. My daughter was taking a class to take her test to get into the masters program. I went with her and waited in the lobby for twelve weeks three hours twice a week. I took the kits and but together all the cards and the other students were amazed. They were so excited to see at their brakes what I had done. They made me feel special when they complimented me at how beautiful the cards were. Thank you Anna for making me special. I plan to order enough product to send at least 100+ this year.

Anna, I usually make between 50-80 Christmas cards a year. Actually, I make all my cards now. I haven’t purchased a card in along time. Probably in 6 yrs. I always try to make up a set of cards for gifts at Christmas time for people. Can’t wait to see what other surprises you have in store for us!!!

my husband and I make the Christmas cards together and probably this year we will be making about 52 to send to family and friends. The best part about it is, my husband helps me work on making my Christmas cards each year. It’s fantastic. time we have together

Hi Anna, I just love your products and I am looking forward to September. I will be making over 100 cards this year using only your kits. They are just fabulous and thank you for sharing your many talents with us. See you in September.

Last year my wonderful husband gave me a manual die cutting/embossing machine. It has opened my eyes to the wonderful world of paper crafting. I am new to the craft but have been adding to my machines and dies and this year my goal is to make around 50 special Christmas cards for family and close friends.
The possibility of receiving a Anna Griffin kit (surprise) is exciting!

I have not bought any of your Christmas card kits. This one looks very exciting. I plan on making 35 Christmas cards this year. Your stamps and ink would be great to make these cards. Thanks for giving me a chance to win!

I will be starting new cards today. simple one that will be waiting for your new stamps for the finishing touches.

I will probably only make about 25 to 30 cards this year but I hope they turn out to be the best.
- Posted by: Merissa
Off the top of my head I’ll be making 25 cards. I probably should get started soon and I’ll probably realize that I need more but for now it’s 25 😉

I’ve never bought a Christmas card kit, so I’m not sure how many I will make….definitely more than zero! I usually make Christmas “mini albums” out of paper, cardstock & embellishments for my immediate family. I plan to include items from your Christmas Card Kit for this year’s albums. Can’t wait to see the kit!

Hello Anna and Team!
Well, I think I will be making about 35 to 40 cards this year. But, my Husband Ron, used to love to stamp. So, I was lucky and got your Christmas stamp ver 1& 2. I am hoping if I win this week, I can get my Husband to be excited to help me with the Christmas Cards. Good Luck Everyone!

Initially, I made your cards for only my dearest friends. Well, my dearest friends talked about how beautiful the cards were and I started getting questions from other friends asking if they would get a “special” Christmas card this year. I think I might have to buy 2 sets this year!
- Posted by: Beverly Brown
I plan on making as many as I can from all the kits I have from you for my mothers nursing home fall bazaar.

Woo-Hoo!!! It’s almost time to make Christmas cards again. I can’t wait because the Christmas Season always puts me in such a good mood and my spirits need an adjustment! I usually make between 50 and 75 cards for Christmas so I’ll need some new supplies for this year and I’d better get started early (but after my AG package arrives from the September 17th shows.)

I will post again did not see my posting I plan to make about 24 cards

Anna, I have been a fan of your products since I started scrapbooking many years ago. Your beautiful papers and embellishments inspire me to want to create scrapbooks and cards for family and friends. Especially, this year. I haven’t had to greatest year due to health concerns but I have always been able to count on family and friends to be there for me with anything I needed in the way of support and prayer. I will be sending about 40 special cards this year to thank them for all that they have done for me and I will be using all Anna Griffin products. Please keep creating beautiful papers and embellishments!

Well, Anna, I am that pesky Anna Griffin collector who keeps asking for Chanukkah items be included in your holiday kits. Maybe this year?? I don’t actually make Christmas cards-they actually are Happy Everything Cards.About 40 or so… Your sentiments and inks would REALLY come in handy..Thank you for being you..Season’s Greetings and I will keep my fingers crossed..I’d love to win ANYTHING, but I’ll probably get it all anyhow! Good luck to us all!
Sincerely, Lou (that’s Lefty Lou for you!)

My holiday card list runs between 65 and 75 cards! The last two years, everyone has gotten an Anna Griffin card, and I have had some amazing comments–even from the men who have received them. I had two that said they were not going to throw them away, they were so beautiful! Thank you Ann for offering such great products!

I plan on making about 100 cards. I am excited to create them with all your new releases!!!

I plan on making 75-100 cards this Christmas. I have been a fan of yours for many years. I followed you from QVC to HSN. My craft studio is all Anna with a french theme. You are such an inspiration, and your card kits are ingenious. I look forward to each and every appearance on HSN.

Can’t wait for this years Christmas Card kit. I have purchased these every year. Anna always includes the most beautiful papers and embellishments. I am making only 40 cards this year so one kit will do the job. The left over material will make wonderful gift tags. Of course the new inks are a must have. Anna please make 12 x 12 cardstock in solid colors to match your line!

Oh, my! While I have used other of your card kits, I have never had the opportunity to use a Christmas one. This year, though, I will have more than ample time to prepare the 45 or so cards I generally send because I will be having knee replacement surgery and that should mean lots of down time. This 73 year old would be thrilled to send cards of beauty and quality. Thank you, Anna.
