Questions answered here
| Jul 15, 2013
Thank you so much to everyone who watched last Thursday. We had a very successful day on HSN and that was due entirely to you! I sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm.
I've tried to answer most of your questions from this week. Here's a quick run down of some of the easy ones...
What brand and color nail polish do you use?
My nail polish is Esse - Sugar Daddy...
When is the next HSN show?
The next shows are on September 17th and it's a 24 hour Craft Event AND I have the Today's Special. (More to come on that subject)
What did I miss on the Live Chat?
1. We had as many people in the chat room as Snooky did - again! 2. Amber from HSN did the typing while I tried to answer everyone's questions. Amber's photo is on Instagram. 3. Small details about our Craft Furniture line. It was due in September, but has just now been postponed to November 7th.
Can you show a more detailed video demonstration of the cutting dies since they sold out before the presentation was complete?
I will post a video demo of the cutting dies on Wednesday here on the blog, so check back. This will give you time to receive your shipment.
Will the Flower and Flourish dies be back in September?
These will be back on November 7th. There is a choice of Christmas die sets in September. Check back here for all the news.
Will the dies ever be on an autoship program?
That isn't in the plan right now, but I think it's a great idea for next year. Thank you!
When are you bringing new dies and embossing folders to the UK?
I will be on QVC in the UK on August 22nd and 23rd. The Cuttlebug, with 2 folders, the Inspiring Impressions embossing folder Bundle, the Flowers and the Flourishes Die Cutting Dies will all be on during those shows. I will warn you, there are limited quantities.
When you showed the Floral dies you said that an extra B plate would be a good thing to have, but there is also a C adapter. What is the difference?
I said that having an extra set of B Plates is a good idea when using the Cuttlebug with die cutting dies. The dies cut into the plastic and make them look scratched. It does not harm them and they still work perfectly - it was just a suggestion. The die sets come with a rubber mat that acts as a spacer for cutting and embossing, so that is all you need. The C plate adapter is plastic and functions the same as the rubber mat. Not needed since you get the rubber mat.
After you emboss with the Cuttlebug, what type of sand paper or device are you using?
You can use any fine grit sand paper to reveal your embossing design. The small block I used came from Making Memories and we bought it at Michaels. Raid the tool box in the basement - the regular stuff works just fine.
Will you offer the Elegant Arrangements autoship bundle again?
We've been asking for it to come back for November, so stay tuned and we'll let you know as soon as possible.
Will Christmas embossing folders be available in September?
Yes, a special 16 folder bundle was created just for September 17th. This will be different patterns than the Christmas bundle you get if you are on Auto Ship.
When will you be coming out with an Anna Griffin Cricut cartridge?
Our first Cricut Cartridge will be available on September 17th. It's for Christmas and it is called Winter Wonderland. I'll be previewing it here soon.
Will you ever make envelopes for 6x6 cardstock?
Our 6x6 paper pads have done well in the past and we do have a set coming up for Christmas. I think adding the envelopes is a great idea for next year!
If there's anything I missed, just post the question below. I will be previewing the new September items here starting soon, so please check back!
Thanks again for your dedication to us and your dedication to crafting!
