Did you buy anything from HSN yesterday?
I bought my first ever card kit. The big one. I debated and debated, but I took the plunge.

I really have never bought anything Anna ever, but love the look. I just didn't think I could do it justice.

But the card kit looked very easy.

WE shall see.

I bought the TSV Anna Griffin Cricut Cuttlebug.

I figured I would give my V1 to my daughter.

I signed up for the autoship of the folders.

I bought the TSV, and I am a first time Cuttlebug user. I like a lot of Anna's stuff, I debated on the card kit, but I just have not gotten into cards yet, but that would be the way to go for sure if I ever did.

I saw the show and believe me I was tempted to get something but did not. I did get one of her floral card kits a few months ago and I love it. It's so fun to make these cards. I know you all will enjoy your purchases.

Here are some of the cards I made with my card kit. Anna Cards

I didn't buy anything yesterday because I'd bought something from November's show, but will jump on the new Cricut cartridge she mentioned.

Yes, her card kits really are as easy as they look. The only "dilemma" I've encountered is not wanting to cover up such beauty with the flowers, sentiments, etc.

I've bought prior card kits before, which I assemble for my mom and sister to give away as cards cost a fortune where they live. A month or so ago the Birthday and All Occasion kits went on super sale for only $15, so I bought 4. Heck, the 10 packs of stickers alone are worth $40-$50! Have fun with your cards!

I'm not an Anna Griffin style scrapbooker, but yesterday I came really close to purchasing her cuttlebug & a few of her card kits. Her stuff is so beautiful all layered up.

But I didn't order a thing

I ordered the Cuddlebug and folders and signed up for the autoship of the additional embossing folders. I love the designs and can't wait to get them. I'm working on a wedding album and they will be perfect. I was tempted to get the card kit, but the Cuddlebug was enough.

Glad I wasn't alone.....

Did I mention that I got the cuttlebug and the AS of folders as well???

Cleaning the scrappy area all this week, to make room for all of the scrappy stuff that I promised my hubby that I will get done now....heehee.

I also ordered the auto ship Cuttlebug. I didn't really need the machine since I have a Spellbinder's Wizard, but it was the only way to get the folders. Also, the larger folders are a tight fit in my Wizard, so it won't hurt to have the Cuttlebug.

I also ordered her Christmas stamp set that was on sale & still available since her last visit.

I always seem to find at least one item to order when she's on. Last time, I ordered her washi tape and marker set. Love both of those.

I AG papers. I stocked up when they had the big sale around Christmas. I was tempted to buy the Cuttlebug just to get the embossing folders but I passed.

I really wanted to get the embossing folders, but I couldn't see buying another Cuttlebug. I think they made a big booboo not offering just the embossing folders on autoship.

The embossing folders were really tempting, but I held off. I did get the layering flowers & the floral all-occasion card kit. I was trying to restrain myself a bit since I went a little nuts at the holiday clearance sale.

She & Tim Holtz have their own sections in my "playroom." Kind of funny, since they're so different; good thing they're both polite!

Anna Griffin posted this on her blog today. (I bolded the sentences that address some of the comments here.)

I just spent the last hour reading all of your lovely comments on my website blog and on the blog I do for HSN. Thank you all for your support and love for what we do here at Anna Griffin Inc.! Wednesday's craft shows were overwhelmingly successful -- thanks to you!

Good news...our golden Cuttlebug will be back on HSN in April. Both the HSN buyers and Provo Craft have been working to get more into production. Going into Wednesday's shows, we all thought that we had the right amount of inventory to last the day. No one could have predicted such a positive response. I am glad you love it as much as I do!

We hear you loud and clear that you want the folders sold separately! Please know that we are working on it and hope to have a plan soon.

For those of you who want the PDF Idea Sheet for the Floral Impressions card kit, I have attached it here - click the gold link - AG282_Design_Sheet

If it is easier for you to get it from HSN, here's how:
Go to HSN.com, Click Crafts, Click on Brand, Anna Griffin, click the link in the photo on the right hand side "Read Anna's Blog."

I was kicking myself for not getting the cuttlebug/folders but I already have a Big Shot & Cricut. So happy to read that they are working on selling the folders separately. Ended up buying her washi set & the floral all occasion card kit. I've used her Christmas card kit in the past & the cards turned out awesome. Highly tempted to go back & buy the Christmas card set that is on sale right now. Happy scrapping to everyone who bought the tvs.

I love the card kits. I've made the Christmas ones two years in a row and already have the kit for next year. They are gorgeous. I make them even prettier with crystals and Martha Stewart punches.
I just had to organize a make and take for 110 women to do them all at once at a big Christmas tea...everybody's turned out great...lots of compliments. Her papers and embellishments are so interchangeable that they all turn out great.
