This week, I want to introduce you to our Blomma papercrafting collection by Jessica Swift. Our new licensing division, Blend, showcases the work of many talented people and Jessica is one of our most prolific. She is known for her daring use of color and quirky and fun pattern sense. Depicting the happiness of sunny days (which are on the horizon!), Blomma’s bright disposition incorporates vibrant oranges and pinks, stylized flowers and bold chevrons. This eye-catching collection offers dynamic textures achieved with tone-on-tone line illustrations and flowers, butterflies and natural creatures all bathed in the warmth of the sun.
Blomma is perfect for all of your playful and upbeat springtime paper projects, and comes with more than 135 coordinating pieces all designed to mix, match, layer and build unique crafts. This beautiful group will be offered on HSN March 25th.
Now, I know you all are dying to know who will be receiving this week’s prize package, and I am excited to tell you! This week, we’re giving away an autographed Anna Griffin Cuttlebug and embossing folders and the Metallic Layers paper kit that is perfect for embossing.
Our winner this week is Melissa Hampton, who has been telling friends about our contest on her blog, and Pinterest pages, made an Anna Griffin pin board on her Pinterest page and even created a projects with Anna Griffin products and posted them to our AG Facebook page for all to see!

I’m an Anna griffin fan from down under! And it’s not that easy but I enjoy the challenge of sourcing some of the most beautiful card crafting items in the world. I’ve been a fan since I bought my first wood mounted set of stamps as a teenager, and now as a new mum I love having a little timeout to craft. I’m lucky to have family in the uk who send me orders from HSN but I am a little limited with what I am able to get. I religiously watch clips on QVC and HSN and thank goodness for online tv- I’m known to get up at 2am to watch. I have liked on fb and have a Pinterest page dedicated to Anna. All I ask is that you bring more of your amazing kits to us in little old Australia- we need you!

Love the color combinations. As a 22nd Anniversary gift last year I received my wedding photos that people had taken that the photographer missed. I’ve been looking for the perfect scrapbook designs to create my album. I would be honored if I was picked.
The happy crafter,

I am a card crafter who has been using your beautiful products for years. I am always thrilled by the new product categories you keep adding to take your offerings to the next level. I cannot tell you the number of times I have given a card made with your amazing selection of designs and heard “this is the most beautiful card I have ever received” or “I am going to frame this” or “Can you make me more cards like this to send” or “you are an amazing card artist.”. But, really, it is your coordinated lines that make it effortless. Thank you so much and I can’t wait until March 25 to see more gorgeous samples and buy a bunch more fabulous AG stuff! Thank you so much!

Good Evening Miss Anna & Fellow Crafters!
It looks like everyone is as excited as I am for the show on the 25th (no doubt) and also very enthusiastic about the FAB Anna Griffin Giveaway too! I love everyone’s comments. When I view the creations of others, in addition to those presented by Anna & Co, I feel inspiration coming on! Thanks everyone!
This weekend I am planning a “Crafting with Anna” party for my family! They have all been recipients of cards and projects using Anna’s exquisite line! This should be so much fun!
I love what Tonia spoke of in her comment about sending her wonderful cards out to many who are in need of a “pick me up”!
Great job Tonia! I find that to be the case as well and helping someone smile or forget their troubles for a little while … what a powerful thing! Anna creates the beautiful kits, papers and embellishments that help us accomplish this with ease and with an elegant style, and no stress! Plus you get the therapeutic benefits of creating! It’s a win, win!
I like to give some of the Anna cards I have created to the care givers I know who give so much of themselves, so often. The sentiment inserts, stickers and stamps are so helpful when you aren’t quite sure what to say, I am so grateful for these! In addition to the cards, I have found that for some scrapbook pages, these sentiment stickers and stamps convey just the right message for the photos you want to showcase.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!

I have been working very hard this week to spread the news about Anna and her wonderful products. I have uploaded photos of all my cards I’ve made with Anna’s products. I have all 221 photos on Instagram (kiestler87) and know I’m in the process of putting them on Facebook, pintrest (disney87) and Two Peas in a Bucket (kiestler87). I love Anna’s products and have for years. I started scrapbooking when I was 9 years old after I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. My Mom would order me items when you were on QVC. I use these homemade cards so frequently. I have often put in the hopsital and use the thank you cards for my church and loved ones who have prayed for me and sent me items. It gives me such great joy to give them a card as a thank you that I personally made. Often times the people that receive this cards keep them out on display at all times. My grandparents have 7 displayed in there home now. I would LOVE to receive this prize!!! Added this wonderful products to my growin number of Anna products would be such a blessing. This past year alone I have used your products to make 2 sets of wedding shower invitations, 1 wedding reception, and 1 1st birthday party. I have recently been told that I will not be able to continue to work because of my condition. Your products allow me to create wonderful products people want to purchase and for me to give. Using your products allow me to create wonderful products and give me a sense of importance. I would also like to say how much I have enjoyed this contest. It has connected me with other crafters and their wonderful creations. I know have new facebook friends, people to follow on pinterest/instagram, and new blogs to explore. I hope get new followers and friends as well. Anna, I can’t WAIT till your shows on the 25!! I will be there with phone in one hand and credit card in the other! Please Please Please consider me for this week prize!!!!

Hello Anna and Fans,
I have been such a fan of Anna, and have been following her for years. I also do not use Facebook, like Michelle, however, I agree with her that the response from the receivers is wonderful. I purchased the AG cuttlebug from HSN and have had so much fun with this product. (I gave my other machine to my friend), so I received twice the joy!!! The products from AG line are so great, and I enjoy getting my packages from HSN, like a kid at Christmas. Thank you Anna for all the great products, and may you have a great year!!! Looking forward to many more crafting days and sharing joy to others because of your creations.

Nice! The use of colors and patterns is just so beautiful!

I adore your products. Your lines and collections are always exquisite and are just a level of class above everything else on the market. I have most of your stamp sets and what a birthday present to find out about your embossing folders, which I’ve just purchased on QVC as well as another set of stamps to add to my collection.
Well done on your new releases and look forward to many more (although not sure how you can top your newest stuff).

Hi Anna!!! I just wanted to let you know that I love your products!!! Being able to make cards and scrapbook brings me such joy in this sometimes hectic world. Crafting is my passion, and I record all of your HSN appearances. I watch them when I am rocking my son to sleep and when I go to sleep at night. I never get tired of seeing all of the things that you and your company have created. I am a bit old school, so I don’t have Facebook or Pinterest, but please believe that every time I give someone a card or a scrapbook that I made from one of your collections I tell them exactly why it came out so beautifully – because Anna Griffin designed it!! I always let them know to go on HSN.com to check for your products. I tell all of my crafting friends just when to tune in to HSN so that they can see the latest and greatest from your collection. I am begging that you please consider me for the weekly prize. I have been dreaming of your 18th century garden stamp set. I totally went crazy from your January appearance on HSN and ordered way to much stuff (the golden cuttlebug, the metallic layers, the card inserts, the floral impressions card kit, the graduation kit). Add that to my growing Anna Griffin collection and I could open a store. Oh Anna, I got it bad!!! I may not be able to spread the word via the internet, but please believe that I spread the word to all of the recipients of your cards and scrapbooks that I create and to all of my crafty friends!!! I LOVE ANNA GRIFFIN!! COUNTDOWN TO MARCH 25TH!!!!!!
