August 20, 2013

Hi everyone!
Thank you for all of your amazing comments over the weekend! It’s so remarkable to hear that you will be sending cards to our troops, nursing homes and hospitals and to individuals like store clerks, school teachers, volunteers, estranged friends and family and even the postman this holiday season.
It got me thinking...if we all gave a card from the Holiday Trimmings Card Kit this year to someone in need, imagine how many people we could touch together! It just gives me goosebumps. Speaking of Holiday Trimmings, the video below will give you another exclusive look at what’s inside, so be sure to watch.
Today’s giveaway winner will take home my new Wreath Stamps to get their holiday crafting started early. A big congrats to Sharon Konkus! Happy stamping!

I hope you are all registered for our AMAZING Facebook giveaway as well.  If you aren’t, make sure to enter by CLICKING HERE The winner will receive every new item on my upcoming shows, valued at more than $600!
Now let’s talk about the pretty paper I have in store for you on September 17th!
My new 12x12 holiday paper kit includes 48 pieces of beautiful cardstock with every color in my Christmas color palette. These patterned papers feature exquisite foil-stamped details and beautiful designs that mix and match perfectly. With a pair of craft scissors in hand and a little bit of imagination you’ll be amazed at what you can create with this kit!

In today’s video I’ll also flip through each and every one of these 48 sheets, because I can’t wait until the 17th for you to see them all!
I’ll be giving this paper away on Friday to one lucky winner, and I hope it’s you! Here is how to win this time around, tell 3 friends about the Holiday Trimmings Christmas Card Making Kit and report back right here with a comment about who you inspired to make cards this week and we will draw a winner! (If you are old enough to remember the shampoo commercials from the eighties, you will understand why we said tell 3 friends!)
See you on Friday!

    When I got the email about the holiday event on Sept. 17th I immediately started watching all the 12 days of Christmas on your blog. I got so excited I immediately called my best friend Carla and told her to look at it and register, Then I entered all my scrapbooking friends names on facebook for them to do the same. We all love Anna Griffin so much so I'm hoping some of us will win one of the wonderful giveaways, they are all so magnificient.

    My daughters, neighbors and some close friends are very excited to hear about your upcoming shows.  My calendar for the 17th has been cleared!

    I just adore the Christmas Collection!  My cards and tags will be stunning.  Of course paper ornaments and I will make small wreaths for the doors.  I can see a large amount of fun with Anna Griffin Christmas Collection.  Have a beautiful day.

    I just can't wait until 9/17. My credit card is burning with anticipation as well.  Thanks for your great products.

    I have been a huge fan of you beautiful papers and embellishments ever since I saw an addvertisement in a scrapbook magazine back in the late "90's". Back then I searched "high and low" for places to buy your products. You can appreciate how excited I was when you premired on QVC and now HSN> You have beautiful "God given" creative and artistic talents! My wish is that I could have enough money to buy all of your products. The cards that I have made with your products have pleased so many people. I too have shared with 3 of my friends you wonderful opportunity to win your beautiful products Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us! 
  9. Posted by: Bonita Ringler
    I told 3 people about your great kit!  I told 3 crafters who love Christmas!  Please enter me in your wonderful & beautiful giveaway1
  10. Posted by: Monica Hernandez
    None of my family or friends do any kind of paper crafting, so I am constantly telling everybody about Anna Griffin and how I will only buy your products cause they are the best!

    My girlfriend Judy got me into rubber stamping many years ago, and for that I will be forever grateful.  It has gotten me through many stressful times......
  12. Posted by: Joanne R
    I have four cousins who are very crafty too ;-) and who enjoy making cards, gifts and scrapbooking.  They all get to see the new Anna Griffin products I get and now they are excited about the September show.  We may all get together, get some pizza, and watch and plan our Christmas cards and gift wrapping.

    I have shared your name, cards & products, and shared the new giveaway to several people and on Facebook. I am almost a little afraid that TOO many people will want your things on HSN and that they will sell out so fast on the 17th! I have watched in the past and missed out because your items sell out so fast. Please bring plenty, and I mean PLENTY, of your items on the 17th of September. Don't want to miss out on all the wonderful things you and your team keep presenting. 
  14. Posted by: Theresa W.
    I told 3 of my family members and they felt they weren't creative enough, but I told them with the ease of your kits, anyone can do it. Thank you Anna and can't wait till Sept 17th...
  15. Posted by: Maw J
    I have told 2 cousins and 5 friends. My grandchildren have inspired me to make cards this week as they have all started a new school year and like to hand them to their new teachers. A couple have made their own from my AG kits and they were given extra hugs!
  16. Posted by: CherylS
    Anna – These papers are beautiful and will be a great addition to the Holiday Trimmings Christmas Card Making Kit!  I told three
    colleagues at work about the kit – we are going to teach each other new crafting skills (jewelry making & knitting by my colleagues, and I am a card maker), so we are going to make Christmas cards together this Autumn with your kit!

  17. Posted by: Dee F
    I told my Bible Study class and that was 16 lady's. I believe I got them excited to watch Anna in Sept. to see the wonderful things I told them about her products. I give them cards for different occasions and explained that they are all Anna Griffin products. They love the cards so they were interested.
  18. Posted by: Starqueen
    Hi Anna,
    oh, what gorgeous festive! I've shared your blog with all my crafty friends...would love to see one of them (or me!) win. Thanks for sharing.

    "The cat is out of the bag.' Since I joined you on Facebook I have received a lot more than 3 people asking me if the beautiful cards I have been sending them came from Anna Griffen. I had to fess up and say yes. I told them the kits are wonderful and how excited I am to get to order for Christmas.Everyone is excited. Then I reminded them they have to put them together. Looking forward to my Anna Griffen cards at Christmas. LOVE IT

     Anna, I gave my entire email list a link to your video so they
    could see how pretty. We are so excited you have outdone
    yourself pretty lady. You only give the best to your fans,
    Trudy from Texas

    Hi Anna, I told 5 of my crafting co-workers and my family about the gorgeous Christmas card kit and these beautiful papers. We can't wait to see your new products on Sept. 17th!   
  22. Posted by: Lisa
    I have told family and friends about the upcoming show. My daughters and I make cards together and we look forward to using the new items available.
  23. Posted by: Ronnie R
    I shared with 3 friends and parted with some of my card making goodies from the card making collection I purchased this summer. They were thrilled to be able to make such a beautiful card with such little effort.
  24. Posted by: Laura
    I inspired my mom to get into card-making with your kits and she makes them for all of our relatives and her friends.  It's so much fun!
  25. Posted by: Shellie F.
    Hello, Anna!  These Christmas papers are so beautiful!  I have invited my daughter and her friend to sip hot cocoa served in my Christmas Holly cups & saucers at midnight on September 17--a pre-holiday viewing party!  I have made your cards the past 2 seasons; and, we have made scrapbooks for years, including your Instant Scrapbooks for holidays, vacations, and family heritage.  I also called my sister and invited her via Facebook.  I don't think I'm going to need the 'reminder' I put in my Smartphone calendar, and I can hardly wait to see you on HSN! 
  26. Posted by: Laura Lowther
    More beautiful papers by Anna. I shared your beautiful kit with my daughter, my daughter in law and my neighbor. They were amazed with the contents in the kit. I hope they fall in love with your products as much as I have. 
  27. Posted by: Kathie G.
    A co-worker who is a card maker and an avid fan of Anna Griffin products said she can't wait to buy your Christmas card kit and start making cards.  The sneak preview looks beautiful....can't want to see everything.
  28. Posted by: Maria
    Love your things Anna!  I can't wait for September 17!~  I am counting the days!  Thanks for all you do for us so we can make amazing things!  :)
  29. Posted by: Denise C
    Anna love all your products!   This will be my fourth attempt to comment and upload.  For whatever reason,  once I enter my verification code, it kicks me out to the web saying to retry. All my comments are then gone. What a bummer. So here I am trying again.  I did tell my friends and shared on my Facebook and Twitter.  I wish good luck to all and myself. Lol..  Hope this one goes to be posted

    I asked 3 ladies from work over for a night of scrapbooking. Little did I know out of the 4 of us 2 of us were Anna Griffin fans.  We had a great time and made cards for the local nursing home.
  31. Posted by: Karen P.
    I have shared with my group of 14 friends, we get together once a month and spend the day making cards.  They have all shared with friends and family.  Anna, I think that by the time your HSN show airs on September 17th you will have an enormous audience!
  32. Posted by: Dawn Whetstone
    Hi Anna, These papers are beautiful and I would love to have them! I have told two of my scrapbooking buddies about your upcoming show and all the Christmas goodies on there. I also told my husband so he would be aware of where my money is going that month! Can't wait until the 17th! Thank you!
  33. Posted by: Karen
    This is the first holiday season in 6 years that I have all three of my daughters in the same area.  I have told them about all the exciting new items you have for this holiday season , so we plan on creating wonderful cards, scrapbook pages, and holiday decorations together.  Can't wait.
  34. Posted by: Jacki Mounts
    It just gets better!  I love all AG products and when I think I have everything Anna brings us so much more. Love how you are keeping everything fresh and irresistable!!  I did spread some AG love to three wonderful people in my life, who did not scrapbook or make cards.....but they do now:)
  35. Posted by: Rhonda M.
    Love this.  You always have the most beautiful Christmas papers. 
  36. Posted by: Donna
    Not only am I old enough to remember the shampoo ads of the '80's so do my 3 daughters.  While they have very busy lives and families of their own I had them all over last night to show them what I had bought last time you were on HSN and what I plan to purchase in Sept.  they are not crafters and were fascinated.  They all stayed late and they made their very first cards...birthday cards for their children.  We all had a blast and they want to get together once a month to craft.  I can hardly believe it and my cheeks hurt from smiling.  So thank you Anna.  Your contest nudged me over the edge to share with my girls something that I love that I was sure they would have no time for...crafting...  No matter if you choose my name or not for any of your items, I am already a winner and soooo happy.

    Absolutely love your Christmas card sets! I received so many compliments last year on them. I have told my best friend who wants to start scrapping and Cardmaking. I also told my husband, all my scrapping friends and all my other friends that I believe would enjoy paper crafting .

    One word: GORGEOUS!!!!!! I'm telling everyone who has ever received and admired an AG card I sent!

    Hi Anna,
    What beautiful papers! I can't wait til Sept. 17th.  I told all the girls I work with about the Holiday Trimmings Card Kit. They told me that even if they purchase the kit, they still expect a card I made for Christmas!  Too funny! I also told my husband, so he wouldn't be "sticker shocked" when he sees our HSN bill.
  40. Posted by: Marge
    First of all I told my husband (so he won't be in shock when he sees the HSN bill) then I told my two daughters, my crafting pals and all my friends on facebook. I tell everyone I see about it. Hope I win as I enter and enter and never ever win.
  41. Posted by: Judy Thompson
    Anna, The paper is just beautiful. I plan to do alot of my Christmas shopping with you on the 17th. I can't wait. I just got the rest of the things I ordered from hsn over the last few days. I am all set to go. I have shared with my sisters and my daughter who scrapbooks with me when she has time. I will also share with a group I get with monthly to scrapbook. We meet this Saturday. So Fun! I will have your new cartridge tomorrow too. 
  42. Posted by: Jeanette Falcon
    Hi Anna, just can't wait for your visit to HSN on Sept 17 . I already told all of my girlfriends and of course my two daughters and they are ready with there credit cards to start purchasing your products, I have been showing them your sneak previews on your blog they got so excited when they saw the video. 
  43. Posted by: Bob H.
    One of the most gratifying aspects of giving AG cards to others is that the recipient regards just the card as a gift (they say!) some also become AG fans themselves and this has improved the quality of many more than three friendships. But my mission is accomplished as I grovel again for advance bits of what appears to be a magnificent collection. Thank You!

    What wonderful papers counting down the days telling all
  45. Posted by: Dalyce
    Had to tell you again.....

    These Papers are gorgeous!!!!  One pack will not be enough.  I will HAVE  to buy at least 2 or 3.

    I have just looked at some of your pre-view items from your QVC UK show.  I am more excited than ever.  These Christmas products are the best I have ever seen.  I feel sorry for the other items that will be showing on September 17th. on HSN.   Everyone will definitely want to purchase yours. 

    I have told my mother about your Christmas Kit.  She always sends store bought cards, but she has loved all the cards I have sent her from you.  She is very Victorian.  She said she may take a try at yours this year

    I'm always telling ladies about Anna Griffin products.  And sending them to your website.

    I have told several ladies from church about your Sept. show and all about your Christmas items.

     I've also told 7 of my daughters and daughter-in-laws.

    My daughters and I will be watching you together on Sept. 17th. For those who cannot get with us, we do a conference call so we can all watch you together.

    Looking forward to more product pre-views.

    Really looking  forward to September 17th.

    Thanks Anna

    Those papers are gorgeous!  But these are the papers  that I thought were going to be sold separately, with all of those wonderful embellishments we saw in the video! (Or, so, I thought- maybe  I'm confused!!!
    .I've pretty much told everyone who would listen to me about the new kit, and how much of an inspiration Anna has been to be in card- making. 
  47. Posted by: Cathy B
    I told my son's girlfriend, my mother and my two sisters.  They have all recieved cards from me that I made with Anna Griffin kits. In fact I made Anna's Glorious Christmas cards and gave them to my youngest sister for her birthday because she was so taken with the Anna Griffin Christmas and Birthday card I sent last year.  The papers are gorgeous!  All of the new products are amazing and I must have them all.  I already put in for a vacation day so I can watch Anna on HSN.  I don't want to miss a thing.
  48. Posted by: JodieH
    I was so glad to share the news about your upcoming September show with my two daughters and daughter-in-law.  Christmas is my favorite time of year and I am anxious to start making my cards.  I will also have a new granddaughter in Nov. so I'll also be working on a scrapbook for her as a very special Christmas gift for her family!  What fun...and I know you will supply tons of inspiration during the Sept. show...can't wait!

    I have told my Mom and a couple co-workers about the new Anna Griffin products coming out.  Can't wait to see the show on 9/17/13. Wish the craft day could be on the weekend since I work can only catch the night shows.  Everything Anna has is beautiful.
  50. Posted by: Linda Valoy
    Love the papers Anna. I have told two cousins and a friend how easy it is to make your cards. Just peel and stick. They will be watching you on HSN. I  am afraid speed dial will not be fast enough on sept 17th. Please bring enough products so you dont sell out before  the 17th.  I would be heart broken if HSN says Anna  is not in the show today because  everything is sold out.
  51. Posted by: Peachy W
    3 friends only? - well I inspired my sister - we craft together, but long distance now as I have moved away - she is enjoying your website and previews now as much as me!  Can't wait until 9/17!
  52. Posted by: Kathleen Clark
    Why only three? I tell everyone I know! Lately, it's all about the sentiment liners for me since that is the one thing I can't do (write, steady stamp, etc., to make my own). Without a meaningful and finished inside liner the outside of the card is diminished greatly. Please make sure sentiment liners are included or available for all your card kits. This is a make it or break it item for me. Love you, Anna!

    I told 3 of my friends like my Mother-in-law, my husband and my sister-in -law.  We all got on the computer to see the new paper line, and my mother-in-law was saying how the paper is just my style! I can already see the cards i well be making for everybody!!!! This would be nice to win because i won't be able to enter the BIG giveaway due to that i don't do facebook. I have teenage girls that look up to me and i would like them to learn that you don't need to always be on the facebook, and that it's always nice to be able to talk to people in person. But it would be nice to enter the giveaway. It would be nice if I could enter here on the blog instead. I wish everybody good luck on winning that BIG giveaway! Thanks Anna for sharing all your Beautiful
    creations with us! Thanks~ gailarita.

    I am lucky enough to have a horse and so my social life pretty much revolves around the barn.  I told 4 of my friends about the card kit being ffered on the 17th.  They already knew about my "addiction" to Anna's products. but this time I brought some leftover Christmas supplies and they thought they were beautiful so we are now planning a card making party in addition to our usual barn potluck and secret santa gift exchange. Can't wait!  Thanks Anna! It's going to be a fun holiday season.

    I have shared my love of making Anna Griffin cards and scrapbook pages with my dear Mother and our beautiful twin Daughters...the three most special ladies in my life.  Your inspiration is so contagious Anna and the beauty and elegance of your papers and embellishments are adored by my entire family.  Your new Christmas papers are  beautiful with a most elegant look of old world Europe to me.  How wonderful to have the beauty of your Christmas colors and the Christmas sparkle foil stamps all on one paper to craft with! Sincerely ~ Debbie

    I got a little carried away and asked a few more than 3 friends. I have been telling them about the great things you do and I know they are interested. The new Christmas papers are exquisite. I am still rearranging my craft room to make enough space to handle all the September items. This is a daunting task. But I might finish by September.

    I've been an Anna Griffin paper hoarder, uh collector...uh buyer?...since I first saw you on t.v. with Sandy Genovese many years ago.  I've told everyone I know, crafter and non crafter alike how beautiful your papers are.  One non-crafter even found your site and I received a beautiful invitation to her wedding designed by you!!!  I shared this video on my facebook page, but also told my sister, a cardmaker, and my daughter, also a cardmaker...and my SON...a U.S. Army soldier who said he missed me so much that he even missed going to the scrapbook store with me.  Thank you so much for sharing your talent for so many years.  My late father once said the most precious gift I had ever given him was a family album I made from one of your kits.  It brought tears to his eyes when I gave it to him just a month before he passed away.  May God bless you in all your future endeavors.

    I have told my best friend Judy and 2 of my other friends Julie and Pat. Julie and Pat showed me your card kits and got me hooked. They also told me of your blog. Thanks, Rhonda

    Oh my stars in Heaven  those papers are heavenly! I told Andrea,Sara,Joan,and Chris. We all like to make beautiful cards and your suggestion for reaching out to others who may not get a card is great. I'm on board!

    <--child of the 80s!! I've told my BFF Peg, our good friend Jo and my crafting buddy Roz! My BFF has started two of the most beautiful Anna Griffin framed art to display in her church nursery. She's already been on a roll making AG cards...she's the one who got me started. I guess it's a good kind of contagious crafting thing?lol I would love to share this with her if I win!

     I have already shared your upcoming show with many people.  I took a wreath making class at a local craft store and was telling everyone 
    at the class about your products and your shows on hsn.  Its easy to spread the word when the products are so beautiful and so helpful in card making and my favorite, scrapbooking.  THANKS!!!!
  65. Posted by: kathy
    I have told friends how make cards and do not normally watch HSN that they have tune on 9-17-13. To find your time I told how to go to the program guide and how they could even order the day before to make sure they are able to get some of your products. Love you 12x12 Christmas Card Stock paper. I have many great nieces and nephews age 3-12 and many of these papers would make awesome cards and tags for gifts. I can wait for the 17th I always get excited when you are on and really love the Christmas cards as it if my favorite time of the year. Thanks for the chance to win.
  66. Posted by: Danielle C
    Every holiday and special occasion I receive a card from my Mom crafted with your products. We email, call and Skype because we're miles apart, but a good ol' fashioned card somehow means so much more. I now have a memory box FULL of beautiful cards with her kind words. I called my mom and we're planning a Skype session for you show on HSN. Emailed my group of crafty friends as well so they can join in! Thanks for providing everyone with the tools to make beautiful cards and memories!

    OMG   this collection is AMAZING!!!!   I love everything you have shown so far.    Emailed a BUNCH of my stamping cardmaking friends and told them about your wonderful holiday collection.    They were soooooooo impressed.    Keep treating us to all these wonderful products.   They make cardmaking so much fun.

    Can't wait for the new products. I have emailed several of my friends
    so they can see the products. Looking forward to Sept,17th.

    I told my husband first. In fact, he is  probably tired of hearing about the big green box that I want! I can't wait to get mine. The foil cards are beautiful and will be easy to make into an outstanding card. Thanks for the all the beautiful crafting items.

    Oh goodness I love the foil stamped cards and paper! Gorgeous!

    I told 3 friends and we are going to have a "Anna Skype Party" we will be watching, crafting and chatting online.  We all live far away so can't get together so Skype is the next best thing. I also shared with my grown daughters an we will be having a card making party after Thanksgiving like you had shared that you do every year.  Thanks for chance to win your awesome papers.  I also was so happy to see you doing more "text" weight paper collections.  I love the double sided also but love my craft knife since learning from you!!! You inspire so many people and I want to say "Thank You" !!!! Can't wait till Sept 17th!!!!

    I told 3 friends and family members.  It inspired my daughter to make cards for her dance teacher's birthday.  She also made thank- you cards for her grandmother and the great-aunt.  She is almost 8, and she is getting good at the craft!

    After telling several of my friends about your new card making kit for the holidays, it turns out that I will be hosting an Anna Griffin/HSN party on September 17th!  Six of us are all taking the day off work – good thing we work for different companies! – to watch you on HSN and craft between your shows ALL DAY LONG!!  Of course, you are the star of our party and we will celebrate by having an Anna Griffin pot luck, bring your favorite dish to share.  Wish you could join us in person!  We will be joining you on TV and shopping with you - till we drop!  Let the creativity roll, Anna Style!

    Hi Anna,

    Your papers are exquisite! The foil finishes are perfect for holiday time and also times when you want that extra special touch...It is so nice that your lines co-ordinate with each other. I haven't thought of that  shampoo commercial in years~sorta takes me back. I told 3 friends and inspired my mom to make a card with me. My mom loves to give cards to people as a way to stay in touch and lift spirits. Can't wait to see what else you have planned!

    I told my Mom, my daughter, my sister & my dogs. (yes, my dogs make cards) Heck, I'm soooo excited about Sept, 17th that I'll tell anyone who will listen!!

    I've let my friends know about the big paper crafting day on HSN and that your card making kit will be the star. We will be making a date to get together to craft once our new goodies arrive.  The paper kit is a wonderful collection and is on my long list of things to purchase on the 17th.

    Unfortunately the problem with entering anything on Facebook is that they insist on allowing them to have access to your friends list & contacts list.  As much as I'd love to win your prize that is a condition that I'm not willing to give people I don't know access to.

    The papers are beautiful and look forward to creating with them.  I have told my papercraftering friends and they have marked the sept. 17th date.  thanks have a great holiday season

    Told my facebook friends and shared your link.  Can't wait until September 17th to see all the beautiful things you bring to us.  I did my first card making with your kits last year for Christmas - never felt like I would have time to do cards because of my other hobbies - but I was wrong.  I took my card kits to the beach last week and made a whole set of cards on the days it rained.  Such a joy to use your products, Anna, because you are so blessed with a tremendous talent. Thanks for sharing with us.

    I am a teacher getting ready to start the new school year tomorrow.  I made welcome cards to our five new faculty members.  I knew they would automatically ask about the products after they opened their cards.  Within a matter of minutes my hunch was correct.  We will all be teaching through most of your shows on HSN on September 17, but we are hoping to order some of the goodies earlier.  Thank you for such beautiful products!

    I didn't get to post last promo, I was sick for 5 days.  I am better now and I can't wait.  Yippee!  These are so gorgeous.  I let my GF and her daughter know.  they get a card from me each year.  As an artist, they can't wait to see what I do with my cards.  Last My sweet mama who goes through my house every time she visits and takes my works home with her, "can i have this one, and this one, and his one?".  She has put me on notice that she wants a very special one this year, with your papers.  I post all my cards and mini albums that I make with your products and everyone is requesting their own Anna Griffin card or mini album.  You are so wonderful. As a business person, I think you should write your story of how you got started, built and run your company.  It would be a powerful business model for many of us wanting to be entrepraneurs.

    Love the papers , have shared with several friends who do cards and scrapbook. I recently purchased your new cricut cartridge. I am so excited with the new cuts!

    The new Christmas papers are awesomely gorgeous! I am a paper fanatic, and I honestly believe that you have out done yourself with these....I am a part of a paper crafting group that meets at our church on Tuesday mornings, and our name is Paper Dolls. I actually organized this group two years ago to share my love of card making and to share my stash of tools. Only one other person in the group had ever done paper crafts, and she was mainly a stamper. 
    Since I have been a fan of yours for years, I introduced you and your products to the group. (I am not sure the husbands appreciate me for that!) Needless to say we watch HSN every time you are on and have been anticipating your return on the 17th. Consequently I had already told everyone I know about the big green box filled with goodies! If your ears are burning every Tuesday morning, it's us talking about you!
    Can hardly wait.....

    I told my Daughter, her best friend and my Daughter-in-law they are all very crafty and love your products. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

    I had to tell my sisters  and sister-in-laws about the Christmas items. We send homemade Christmas cards to each other and then re-use the front of each others cards to send to other family members.It's wonderful  to see your card reused, we just can't store the cards away they are too beautiful.

    Not sure if you remember my previous post. I am the one who had forgotten about the Thank You card set I had received on auto ship and remembered it in May when my father passed. Sent out the most beautiful Thank You cards to everyone who showed there condolences. Had so many people actually call me to thank for the Thank You card. Have never had that happen. But I took the time to call all my aunts and tell them about the Sept 17th showing and all your new products coming out. We are now having a get together at my house and going to watch together. I am so excited get to shop with you and hang out with my mom and aunts. Maybe we'll try to call and talk to you that day.

    I was so excited Anna that I posted it to my Facebook timeline so ALL of my friends and family (as well as several other groups I'm in) now know my secret to making beautiful Christmas cards....I fear I may have created more competition than I can handle!  Eeeek! Seriously though, I'm happy to share the wealth....but I do hope I get to win some of that gorgeous paper!  Cheers!

    I have already told everyone I know about not only your papers but all of your products.  My family gets a kick out of how much I talk about you.  They ask me if I know you. I WISH. I have made Wedding and Baby albums with your beautiful papers and they thought I bought them. Cant wait till the 17th!!!

    I told a bunch of people at a crop this past weekend when I was making your Glorious Christmas kit. 

    I am usually a very disciplined person but, when it comes to your products, Anna, I have NO SELF-CONTROL!   It's gonna be Christmas in September at my house!

    Are you kidding; you only want us to tell 3 people? Tell everyone you know. I know a lot of scrapbook, card maker, crafters. Your products are good for anyone that likes to make something beautiful. I am so excited about the upcoming HSN shows. I always look forward to watching and recording the shows I can't watch, although items sell out before I can watch the recorded shows. I usually try to preorder items I can't live without.

    Well, I posted on FB so I'm sure I told more than 3 friends about this!! And I am hoping I inspired just as many to make cards this week! One person I know I inspired was my daughter!

    ONLY THREE!?!?!?!  Well, I passed your info to probably 14 ladies so in case, like the shampoo commercial, there is someone who didn't know 3 people to tell, they can use some of my "credits".  LOL  Thanx, Anna . . .

    Told 3 email friends about Anna Griffin and gave them your website addy so hoping they will be as inspired as I have been with your products.  I love everyone of them.  Years ago I had ordered many of your frames/punchouts and journalling punchouts - dug them out this wk. and they are working perfect for Christmas notecards I am making for several of my friends.
  119. Posted by: Jan Williams
    How lucky for me that I had a planned date with my scrapping friends today and got to pass the word to everyone at once.  I've been making cards at all of our get togethers and one by one others have begun to make them also (so much easier to carry a box of card supplies than to pack up albums and the accompanying materials needed for scrapbook pages).  I told them about the Holiday Trimmings Christmas Card Making Kit and they know what to expect since they've all been recipients of your birthday, Christmas, get well, etc. cards made by me!  We'll all be watching on the 17th and I'm sure there'll be some shopping, too!
  120. Posted by: Georgia Hruska
    2 of my friends are cardmakers but have never made your cards until I suggested we share a kit I recently bought and they saw how beautiful the results were.  They are now hooked.  My 3rd friend is an avid scrapbooker, but when she checked out your video and saw the beautiful new Christmas paper, she now wants to order the new kit in sept and make her own Christmas cards.  I know they will not be disappointed with the results.  Thank you for creating such beautiful, well made products.
  121. Posted by: Dawn G.

    Asking my friends to watch HSN on Sept 17th was easy, their interest is peaked.  These are "non-creative" people, or so they say, and can't believe they'd have any success at making cards.  Now it is up to you Anna to show them that it really is as simple as picking a card, picking a piece of paper and a pretty embellishment, gluing it all down and signing their name.  :)

    PS  Pretty papers.  Love the Santa. :)
  122. Posted by: Robin
    I have told my scrapbooking/cardmaking family and friends
    about all the new Anna products.  Most of them were already aware, of course.  I am excited to use these new beautiful papers.  I can

    I told more than 3 of my friends and they can't wait until September either. The only problem,.. if all of them are going to order all these beautiful products we will be in trouble on the 17th....Anna, I hope you will have enough products for all of us to order...Can't wait

    Hi Anna,
    Had to tell a friend that I send handmade cards to now and then all about you.... She wants to get into cardmaking, and with all of your inspiration and new products, I know she's gonna love it.  Next, 
    I had to tell my sister, and , speaking of the 17th, reminded her to hit the RECORD button, because seeing all the card samples you show will make her head spin....then, I had to tell a coworker, since she love love loves crafting too.....BUT, why stop at 3 people!!!
    And yessssss, I am old enough to remember those commercials.
    These sneak previews are a great way to give us a taste of what's to come....

    Why stop at 3, I sent the link to your blog to everyone of my crafty friends so they can see your beautiful products and have their chance to win.  I'm confident if one of us wins we will be sharing with the others.

    I have shown this video to 3 of my crafting friends and we are ready to go to my crafting "lodge" behind my house and make christmas cards!  I don't know if we can wait until the 17th to get started!  We call oruselves the "Glory Girls" because we all go to the same church, and have a stamp we stamp on the back of each card saying "handmade by the Glory Girls."
    I can hardly wait to get my hands on these papers!

    I told 3 ladies at work today about you and the show!   Can't wait and hoping I can win!!!!!!

    Anna, you are so amazing and generous. I love all your crafts. I told Bree Goth, she is one of the admins of scrapbooks and more crafts on facebook and I am going to go into there and tell them all. I also told my sister Sally and another friend /crafter Roberta Fox. I love the idea of you tell 3 friends and she'll tell 3 friends and so on and so on. How clever, I love it. You are not only the number one craft hero, but you have a great sense of humor. I saw the paper and its all so beautiful. I am on disability and buy one thing for sure when you are on hsn, but it would be wonderful to win the paper,just never enough money for all the things you offer,and it just breaks my heart. But I love watching all the beautiful things you have and I will be looking to see which kit I will buy on the 17th, can't wait!!!

    love you, Sharon

    Love, love, love, love, love the foil border on the cards! What a beautiful idea. I will definitely use them to send out photo cards of the girls. I love the paper, too! I told all my scrapbook friends. (more than 3.) They are just as excited as I am about your products.  ^_^

    I watched two videos today, and only find one place to comment. So here is my comment to the second video "Cottage Rose" I was first inspired to make greeting cards many years ago. It was actually my mother at the very end of her life she received hundreds of cards from friends, family and organization wishing her well.  Not only did I save all of those cards (placed them in a scrapbook) but I have been making handmade cards since her passing. I always want to give a part of myself back to all those who cared enough about my mother to send her a piece of them.

    I have had so much fun passing around the word of your beautiful papers and embelishments.  Today I told my Sister, my daughter and my daughter-in-law to stop by the site and be sure to tune in to HSN on Sept 17th.  We just make it a party at my place on the 17th.  Thanks so much

    Sent to my daughter-in-laws via email and have it posted on my Facebook.  As  mentioned one other time, my cousin is SO impressed  with my cardmaking that she has asked me to make cards for our local Women's Club!  I love getting inspired with your products.  Will be on vacation Sept. 17th but I AM taking my laptop along so I can check out HSN whenever you are on!  Must check the time schedule so I can watch your show while putting on my makeup in the morning, I hope!  That ought to be interesting!

    Hi Anna,
    Love the new papers.  Just when I think I have enough, there comes so many new ones.  I have a paper-addiction, so I share my papers with my best friend in KY.  I told her about the new Christmas line from you, and we can't wait to get together. I live in MI so we try to see each other as much as we can.  I do cards for my sisters, and they always compliment me on the cards I do from your sets. My two daughters are going to come over and make homemade cards with me.  This should be an experience (both have ADD). I do cards with the ladies at church, so I'm sure we will have plenty to go around, since I already have two of your sets left.  Can't wait till the 17th.  I already took the day off of work:)

    I was substituting for my girlfriend at a Bunco Party this weekend. There was 24 women and I didn't know a sole. I always find to break the ice, I ask if there are any Crafters and out of 24 women, 21 Scrapbooked and, or, made Cards. Well, I wanted to be the Big Star of the night, so I asked how many used Anna Griffin Products and were they aware that a New Christmas Cricut Cartridge had just come out.  Well, out of 21, 21 had used Anna Griffin Products and only 4 knew about the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland Cricut Cartridge.  I also told them about HSN, Anna Griffin Christmas New products on Sept. 17th and they would regret not watching, if for nothing else to see the amazing, beautiful & elegant Scrapbook Layouts, Cards and other Projects. There was 5 of the 21 women had used Anna Griffin Christmas Card Kits. It didn't take long and soon all of us were so excited about the 17th. I told them to Like Anna Griffin Facebook for a chance to win the Largest Anna Griffin Giveaway ever. I also told them about Anna's Blog and giveaways with sneak peeks. We have planned a HSN, Anna Griffin's Christmas New Products, Release Party at my house on Sept. 17th, all day. There will be 21 of us and I think I will have a Card Making & HSN Anna Griffin Christmas Viewing Party on Sept. 17th.  I have 6 full Anna Griffin Card Kits, Christmas, Floral Garden, etc and I will have them make cards with the kits for my local Nursing Home. Just think, I could be done with my Nursing Home Cards in no time with all of their help. Shhhh, don't tell them, let it be a surprise :) We decided to have each person bring some type of Christmas appetizer or Christmas Cookie to go along with Anna's HSN shows. It is going to be so much fun, I just can't wait. Oh Anna, your invited but I think you are busy on the 17th, LOL

    These Papers are gorgeous!!!!  One pack will not be enough.  I will HAVE  to buy at least 2 or 3.
    I have told my mother about your Christmas Kit.  She always sends store bought cards, but she has loved all the cards I have sent her from you.  She is very Victorian.  She said she may take a try at yours this year
    I'm always telling ladies about Anna Griffin products.  And sending them to your website.
    I have told several ladies from church about your Sep. show and all about your Christmas items, and 7 of my daughters and daughter-in-laws.
    My daughters and I will be watching you together on Sep. 17th. For those who cannot get with us, we do a conference call so we can all watch you together.
    Looking forward to more product pre-views

    I told a friend of mine and showed her some of the other papers that I have of yours. I told my daughter and she is a scrap booker, but she lucks out because I have given her some of your papers. (I think she should buy your Christmas kit and give mom I also told my sister, she does not think she is crafty, but I told her that your card making kits are very easy to follow and are beautiful. The Christmas papers you showed are beautiful. Thanks for a chance to win.

    I donated a basket of your elegant cards for a fundraiser for a 40 year old woman who is battling a rare form of cancer.  When she saw the cards, she said she wanted them.  I gave them to her and she said she wanted to start making your cards as they are so stunning and unlike anything you find in the stores.  I quickly made another basket to donate to the fundraiser.  My neighbor said she wanted so badly to win them and would you believe she did!  I never saw two people to happy.  Another friend is an out of work nurse who is extremely creative.  She draws and paints.  She just told me that she is in awe of these cards and wants to make them while she is not working.  I have so Anna Griffin papers and started teaching her how to make cards.  She is finding it very relaxing and sent me a 'thank you' card...homemade Anna Griffin. I cannot wait until September 17.  Marilyn

    Recently I heard about a woman in a nursing home that likes to scrapbook. She is on a very limited budget so her friend was looking for extra scrapbook supplies as a free donation. Any extra would go to the other ladies at the home. I think I will go over a volunteer for 1/2 day each month and teach them about scrapbooking and card making. I am sure making your cards for the holidays to give to thier loved ones will be special this year.

    I tell everyone about your cards and papers. I even tell my friend in Denmark. She couldn't quite get the idea but just a short time ago she told me she was in a hobby shop and saw some beautiful albums and papers (Anna are you in Denmark)? She asked the salesperson about them and was told "It is the American way of doing albums." Guess what my friend is getting for Christmas? One of Anna's Christmas kits. So not only am I telling but sending.

    I've told two friends of mine about your delightful kit.  They love my holiday cards so much that they display them every Christmas.  One of my friends wants me to hold a card class for her mother and three sisters to teach them how to create such lovely cards.  I told them to order a kit each on the 17th, then the 6 of us can meet and create our holiday cards together.  How exciting is that!  Love how you are sending us blog alerts and enticing us with your lovely designs...just love it!  Thanks for all you do, Anna!

    Entering the contests is terribly difficult, but I love the products! Told my mom and three crafting far!

    Had to tell my best stamping friend of course! Then I promptly visited our two stamping stores in town to tell one owner and two sales people about your beautiful Christmas items coming soon!

    Hi Anna - I hopefully have inspired 3 of my friends at work to go forward with trying their hand at cardmaking with your kit - I'm hoping that if they have the chance to order the kit on Sept. 17.  Personally, I can't wait - it's driving me crazy to wait another three and a half weeks!  Your new holiday paper kit is just beautiful!  I hope I'll be lucky to win it!  Thanks for all the lovely things you bring to us!

    I have not stopped at telling only 3 friends but have passed along my enthusiasm about your products to several.  They have all received cards from me that I made from Anna's Floral Impressions kit & know how beautiful your work is.  I think there will be a larger audience than ever to watch (and hopefully buy) at the Sept. show.  I'm sure it will be a great one!  Thanks, Anna!!!

    What beautiful papers.  You are so very creative!  Can't wait til the 17th, might have to plan a longer lunch.

    I love, love the foil stamping that you do on your papers.  And, I'm so excited to see it in the card kit!  I'm dying to be able to order the card kit!  I also have been telling the girls I work with about all your great products and of course about the giveaways.  We are all inspired now and organizing a Christmas Card Making girls night!  They do mostly scrapbooking, so making cards will be somewhat new to them... But, I assured them that with your kits it's really simple and easy to do!

    LOVE these gorgeous papers!  Can't wait to get my little hands on these and start making projects and cards! :)

    I telephoned my sister, a quilter who says she never has time for anything else; however, when visiting me two years ago she sat and made beautiful cards at my kitchen table using your kit; I also told neighbors and at least two people in my stamping club who had somehow missed this news.  Can't wait for September 17th;

    The Christmas paper is gorgeous!  I have told my entire scrapbooking group (we meet on Thursdays - 6 to 8 ladies) about your September 17th show.  I am always bringing your products to the group to work with them and the ladies are amazed at the beauty and ease of use of your kits.

    Ok so I told a co-worker, my "new friend" scrapbooking store owner and a fellow new crafter: I've been working on a new scrapbook as a wedding gift for a relative whose wedding I recently attended: the co-worker and fellow newbie crafter both were really wowed by what I'd created so far (which isn't the best work ever, but I have been improving since learning new tricks from the craft/scrapbook store owner). Both have stated they now would like to attempt a scrapbook project since they've never done one and love what I've been able to create: taking a scrapbook from ordinary to extraordinary! Love that! The scrapbook store owner says that people like myself are the reason she continues to so what she does- she's inspired by my excitement and commitment!

    I told my daughter, daughter-in-law, and sister about your visit to HSN. They want to help use whatever I get.  Money is tight around here for the girls so I'll share whatever I end up getting. I don't have facebook so I can't enter for your big give away but your papers are always wonderful. Thanks for a chance to win them.

    I told my sisters, daughter and my friend about your upcoming show and new products.  They can't wait to see what I will make for them this year.  They are amazed every time they get a papercrafting item such as a card from me.  I am sure they will be making their own beautiful items from your collection.

    I have told 3 people about this papers and everything else you have been showing to inspire them. Your Christmas paper looks fantastic. I t seems like Sept will never get here I can not wait to see everything live

    My Mom, my sister and daughter. I do have my Mom hooked on many things made by Anna. She got her new book and loved it. My daughter loves to made cards, but being out of college doesn't always have the funds for new things, that's where I help. Don't tell anyone but one year my husband got into my craft supplies and made me an Anniversary Card. It was the best! (He hears about how much I love to get new Anna Griffin supplies all the time!)

    I have shared information about your kits with my extended family and all my bridge friends. Many of them have received one of your lovely cards over the past three years!

    I've already shared with 2 coworkers and a friend about your upcoming show on September 17th!  They always love the cards I make for them every year.  This paper kit is a must have!  Can't wait.

    I just told 3 of  my friends and sent them the link to your blog and FB. I did my part! Can't wait until Sept 17 I will be watching all day.

    I love Christmas and cards are a big part of my Christmas tradition. I am sharing your beautiful creations with my coworker who is about to be married in November. She wanted to know how to look you up on facebook. She is very excited.

    I told family and co-workers but of course my sister, who loves your cards as much as I do, is more inclined to make them as we both cannot wait to see what else is around the corner for your HSN show in September.  My co-workers enjoy being the recipients of my holiday cards!!!
  196. Posted by: Linda Fraley
    I shared the blog with three fellow crafters and they were so impressed with the quality of the designs-not your ordinary holiday paper!  Perfect for cards, gift boxes and scrapbooking after the holidays.

    As part of my birthday gift to my best friends I give a stack of greeting cards that I make.  My friends are in 7th heaven with my cards and "ooh and ahh" over them.  I told three of my friends about your new collection, and they are also eagerly waiting for your show in September.
  203. Posted by: CONNIE
    I just called3 friends and told them about your new cards and papers. we are going to do Sept 17 together by phone and face time.  Then we are going do get together and do the cards as a group.  It should be a lot of fun.
  204. Posted by: Irene Baker
    I told my two best friends, and my daughter.  They are all fascinated about the cards I make throughout the year for them, so I thought they might be interested in getting started with Anna Griffin supplies from HSN in Sept. (little plug there).  Personally, I can't wait until the 17th.  Have already marked my calendar!!!   Yea!!!! 
  205. Posted by: Abby L.
    I told 2 friends and my sister about today's sneak preview.  My sister loves to make cards, but has a hard time finding inspiration.  Anna's products inspire the both of us!  I hope I'll win these beautiful papers!!!

    I met with friends last Thursday and told them about the Holiday card kit and Sept 17th. One friend and I are planning a date to get together and make holiday cards. I can't wait!
    Thanks for a chance to win these beautiful papers!!!

    I have three friends at work who dabble in scrapbooking - and I told them about the cards.  They actually have been recipients of cards I have made from your prior Christmas kits and birthday kits.  They can't wait to see what comes next.  Everything so far has been so lovely.  Now all I have to do is win the lottery so I wouldn't have to make choices, just buy it all!  Not on Facebook so I can't try for a AG lottery win.  ;-(

     I told my neighbor and then I thought why not share this site so all my friends can see.  I keep telling them that anyone can make beautiful and wonderful keepsakes with you products.  Keep them coming!  God Bless and have a wonderful day!

    I told my daughter and two of my crafting buddies in my monthly crop circle! We are all eagerly awaiting your new items and are desperately trying to get our hands on your new Cricut Cartridge! Love your items Anna and the new foil stamped paper is right up my alley :)

    I sent the link to your blog to three of my scrapbooking friends--Sandy, Paula and Cathy.  How much fun is this!!  So exciting to see the new products and the anticipation of the contests!!

    I told my three sisters and only one is interested ( my fellow crafter!) She had not seen your designs to purchase; only in the cards and pages I had made for her, using your beautiful designs. She is psyched to get started with her two daughters!

    I love the new Christmas Collections. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I love scrapbooking Christmas memories.

    I told one of my sisters, one of my best friends, and a co-worker!  What a great early Christmas gift to let them know how much fun cardmarking and scrapbooking can be.  I also let them know about the FaceBook giveaway.  Whether I win or they win it still makes for a Merry Christmas!

    I tried to reach more than 3 people. I have posted on my Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, and Pintrest. I want all the seasoned cards markers as well as the newbie to know with this kit you can do it!!! I can't wait for your show Anna!!!
  216. Posted by: Judy Nurkkala
    My college-age granddaughter saw all the cards I had made and was excited to look at them all! She chose many to send to friends. But most of all, she said, "Grandma, I want to make them with you!" And that was just from looking at all the embellishments I had left over from other kits. Can you imagine how she would react to getting a new kit?

    Just cant IMAGINE winning, the papers are so incredibly beautiful! Hurry cant wait to see you on the 17th...Hugs...Patti

    I told my daughter and two friends.  They say "I'm not that creative" and I say EVERYBODY is creative in their own way.  But with your kits and paper, Anna, ANYBODY can make absolutely beautiful cards!!

    Can't wait to send my relatives in England the christmas cards from your collection.  They just loved them in the past.

    I told my neighbor and 2 people at work.  They keep saying they could never do "those beautiful cards".  I keep telling them it's not me; it's Anna.  She put it all together for me.  Can't wait til the 17th.
  223. Posted by: Erica H.
    Told 3 neighbors, one said sounds beautiful, one said they don't have time to make cards, they would rather buy ones already made and the other one said his wife would love it!

    what inspires me to make cards would be old time advertisements that I came across last night-highly inappropriate, yet attention grabbing! Throwback to nostalgia! 8)

    Wasn't that the old Faberge' Organics commercial? Of course, I'm not old enough to remember that ;-)...
    I'm out with the ladies who lunch-in this case brunch- and we've all just watched your preview. We'll be watching on the 17th! 19 new products- yippee skippee.
  228. Posted by: Cathy May
    I have told two of the girls that I work with about your products, existing ones and new ones.  They have been scrapbooking a lot longer than me. One even used to belong to a card club until everyone had children and time just got away from everyone.  These papers are just absolutely amazing.  I look forward to each and every one of your previews.  I also hope that my husband will be working on the 17th so he won't be able to see how much I plan to purchase.

    Thanks again for all you do.
