It's that time again. It's been a while since we did a giveaway, so we decided to do an awesome one!  We are excited to announce the release of a brand new Anna Griffin product, the Cricut Summer Soirees cartridge. So to celebrate the new cartridge, we are hosting a contest with the prize being a bundle set of classic Anna Griffin embossing folders for your Cuttlebug machine.

The folders included in the bundle are:

  • Reflected Damask
  • Circular Grid
  • Blossom Dance
  • Elaborate Quatrefoil
  • Ogee Damask

To enter (detailed instructions below) all you have to do is post about the new Anna Griffin cartridge on Twitter. We realize most of our customers are on Facebook, but with recent changes to Facebook's privacy settings, we are unable to track hashtags (meaning we can't see your post), which makes it impossible to run contests through their social platform. We apologize for the inconvenience, but there is really nothing we can do about it.

Contest Rules

You must tweet a message about the new Anna Griffin cartridge, include the appropriate hashtag (we will not be able to track your tweet without it), and include a link to the new cartridge. We are closing the contest at midnight MST on Tuesday, June 24. You only have 5 days to enter, so act fast. Detailed instructions on how to enter to win the Anna Griffin embossing folders are found below:

Just follow these 5 easy steps:
