  1. The videos look great and I could use some new inspiration. My tip is to get a paper towel tube (or other cardboard tube before recycling) and use the end as a paint applicator to apply circular patterns to cardstock for background design. Also works great as an area to journal in on a scrapbook page or in an art journal.

  2. Amazing giveaway. I am thrilled to have the chance to win one of these. My crafty tip….Using distress inks ink up your stamp and then spray the paper with a light mist of water it really make the image pop almost like dry embossing.
    2nd tip
    take your stamp ink it up and then spray a glimmer mist or shimmer mist spray in a similar color as your ink or a clear or near clear color and stamp your image will sparkle. For the holidays try using gold or silver.

  3. WOW what awesome DVDs they would be a great way to help me learn new techniques and to step outside the box!!!

  4. Would love to win these videos… they look fabulous. My tip: when I’m finished scrapbooking a layout I will make some cards as I already have a variety of coordinating materials all spread out.

  5. My crafty tip is: when short on drying time and want to still ad sparkle, I use a Jelly Roll Stardust pen and it adds a perfect amount of sparkle and pizazz to my cards! I like to use other products such as stickles but don’t like how long they take to dry when I’m in a hurry.

  6. I’d love to win a copy of either dvd. You’re my very favorite designer and I watch every video that you post. Thank you for the chance to win. Take care.

  7. These DVD’s sound great. I would love to win one. My crafty tip is to follow your blog daily and learn all kinds of crafty tips. That’s what I do.

  8. I recently moved and my awesome dad built me a pegboard craft board.I picked up some pegs from the hardware store to hang wire baskets, racks, etc. I decided to hang my unhealthy amount of letter stickers using binder rings. I put like colours in order so I can just flip to the sticker sheet I want.

  9. Wow! I would love to win these videos. Living in a rural area, DVD’s are a great way to learn something new. My crafty tip is to scan copies of your favorite cards before you give them away. It is easy and faster to make another card by looking at your copy.

  10. I would love to win these DVD’s to better myself as a stamper/cardmaker/crafter. Thank you for the opportunity.

  11. Whenever I die-cut a shape I always cut a few extras on white cardstock. That way I can change the color with inks or shimmery sprays easily for a custom colored look.
    Thanks so much for the chance to win your new DVD’s. I have had my eye on these since you first announced them. I have poured over your hero arts blog videos as well as both of your thinking inking classes.

  12. Awesome giveaway, Jennifer! My crafty tip would be to set up an assembly line when making cards so that you can make a few cards at the same time–it’s a win-win situation: more cards made and less to clean up! 🙂

  13. I love your videos Jennifer, not only are the inspiring they are eminently doable. Since the chances of me travelling to the US in the near future are v. v. slim, I would love to win the DVDs. Cheers

  14. I would love to win! Thanks for the chance!! TIP: I use the clear plastic packaging to make embossed images using an embossing folder. It makes a wonderful etched effect, beautiful too!

  15. My favorite tip? Use adhesive cardstock when cutting small die cuts. Then there’s no need to fuss with a glue pen or Xyron X. Yes, it is probably more expensive than adhering your own glue, but it is a timesaver.

  16. i love technique dvds i like to see someone showing me what to do so i can get it easier. maybe it is because i am getting older and my brains doesn’t work as well as it use too!

  17. These look great! My tip is to use that no rinse sterilising handwash gel to clean up your copic messes on your hands and work area. For some reason I always end up with copic marker all over my hands when I colour.


  18. Thanks for the chance to win the dvd-my tip is this: when doing the laundry save those dryer sheets-when you are stamping,using those tiney embellishments that like to stick to your hands etc-use those used dryer sheets on your surface-the powders and embelishments won’t stick as much and the surface will be easier to clean up

  19. I would love to win one of those DVD’s since the chanches to attend one of your classes are practicly zero…

    My craft tip? Never to think I can’t achieve what I see on all those blogs… When you give it a try, you end up with a beautifull card or project that may not look like the original, but is your personal one-of-a-kind masterpiece. And in the end, the achiever does not know what the original was, so will be flabbergasted with your own handmade gift or card!

  20. This isn’t a new tip, but it’s something that you’ve mentioned a few times and it’s really stuck with me. I like to make a card each time I finish up a layout. I already have the coordinating colors, products, etc… and usually have quite a few scraps leftover. Even if I don’t need a card at that time, I just put it aside for later when I need a card quickly, but don’t have the time to whip a fresh one up. Thanks for all of the inspiration, Jennifer!

  21. I love your blog Jennifer;) I don’t know about you, but I have a bunch of different inks, stickles, markers, etc. Find a wallet photo keeper and make a color chart/list of what you already have. My photo keeper is 4″x6″. It has 16 slots and a clasp (very important). Download the .pdf color grids from Ranger’s website. Shrink them to size. Color them in and you will have an easy beginning. When you get to the store all you have to do is flip through your “book” to see what you need. This way you will not have 3 Picket Fences at home!

  22. Love your tips Jennifer! I wish I had time to try them all! My crafty tip is pretty simple. I buy what I like but to keep costs down I use coupons. Just yesterday I added another distress ink to my stash and I got it for 50% off!

  23. So excited for for these DVD’s.
    My tip is when coloring with distress ink rub it onto your pad and spray with water rather than use a water brush and take ink right from the pad. You have more control over how dark the color is.
    Thanks for the chance to win Jennifer, you rock!

  24. Hmm my tip would be.. More often people are using the same stamps & pattern paper. To make it unique, add your own designs on it by using markers or pens, like glitter pens. By adding little dots & lines, it’ll feel like you have a new product to use for paper crafting! Hope that helps everyone & thank you for the giveaway! 

  25. Wow, cool! A DVD would be the next best thing to actually being able to attend one of your wonderful classes! (You really should come up to Vancouver, BC!!!) Thank you so much for the chance to win one! I don’t think I really have a tip that someone else hasn’t thought of, but I love the tip I just read here about pre-cutting labels out of your favourite white cardstock so that whenever you need a label shape you just have to get whichever shape suits you!

  26. I’ve really learned a lot from your videos and appreciate the chance to learn more. My crafty tip is something left over from my teaching days. If you ever use ziplock bags to store things, snip a little bit off the bottom corners and that will take care of capturing air inside the bag. They’ll be much less bulky to store.

  27. crafty tip–I learned this from a wonderful lady named Jennifer McGuire–on staz-on ink pads, secure the clear cover on the lid with a glue dot. Then you don’t have to remove the clear cover separately. 🙂

  28. I’m not sure if I have a crafty tip that I can share that I didn’t learn from you! LOL!
    In fact, I was at a crop yesterday with a friend and we were refering to you and what we’ve learned here on your blog. “Jennifer way saying on her blog” or “Jennifer showed this….” Thanks so much for sharing your expertise with us Jennifer-wannabees!

  29. crafty tip – Do several things at one time, die-cut more than one image while you have your machine out – it does save time.

    crafty tip – use those tissue boxes instead of throwing them away for your die-cuts

    Thank you so much for offering a chance to win.

  30. My crafty tip: I only buy silver brads and ink / emboss the colour that I want when I use it instead of buying diff colours of brads =) Thanks for having a chance to win your DVDs.

  31. You are so generous Jen! My tip is to buy only clear gems, pearls, and “dew drops” and then use my Copics to color them to match my cards! Perfect matching bling every time!

  32. One of the coolest little tricks I have learned is for very small die cut letters or shapes…use removable tape. Arrange the letters or shapes how you want them on your page. Place a piece of removable tape (I use Scotch brand) on the die cuts and turn the tape over. Then use a glue pen to apply adhesive to the die cuts. Then place on your scrapbook page or card right where you want them all at once. Press the die cuts down and carefully remove the tape while keeping the die cuts in place on the page or card. It works so great for those tiny die cuts that can be very frustrating to work with. Thanks for the chance to win the cool DVDs…they look awesome!

  33. Beautiful cards. Hero Arts ROCKS! Love the way you teach and your techniques you use. I would love to get my hands on this DVD! Good Luck everyone!

  34. i learned this neat tip at an Archiver’s card class this weekend: if you want to wrap ribbon around a panel that you will adhere to the front of your card base, cut your ribbon longer than you need and tie the knot/bow with the two loose ends of the ribbon, creating a loop of ribbon. then cut the ribbon and tack the one loose end on the back of the panel, wrap the ribbon around the front, placing the knot/bow where you’d like it, then continue wrapping the ribbon around the panel, tacking the end on the back with more adhesive. kind of hard to explain, but i hope you get the idea. helps you get that ribbon tight and put that knot/bow just where you want it!!

    thanks for the chance to win!

  35. Oh drats! I saw this the day you posted and was so excited about this giveaway!!! I couldn’t come up with a crafty idea, I’m new to this, that is why I need your DVDDDDD’s 🙂 I just thought of something and see I needed to respond last night…oh well, I will love going back over all these comments and learning some tips! Thank you for your beautiful creations, your time and wisdom, and your inspiration!

  36. I use an old notebook and write info about the event (date, story, people) on each page. Then I go back when I have an idea for a layout, what pictures to print and size, or paper to use and sketch it out. I may not start the layout immediately, but at least I have a reference for when I do. It’s also a good feeling to cross the page out or rip it out of the notebook when completed.

  37. Both of these videos would be a treasure to own. Thanks for the chance to win one.
    To store your scraps of pattern paper, put them in a page protector (I use the cheap 8 1/2″ by 11″ ones) and keep that with the remaining sheets of matching paper. Put the scraps for a whole shelf or storage box in one protector. When pulling paper for a project, all your matching scraps at right at hand and you will use them more often.

  38. My tip is to make metal embellishments by cutting up an old soda can and using my Wizard along with my Spellbinders dies to cut out shapes from the “metal sheet”. Crafting and recycling! LOL

  39. Hi Jennifer, I just found your blog when I was searching for videos on scrapbook rooms. Yours is amazing! Anyways, I am new to stamping and would love to win one of your DVD’s. What an awesome prize. I don’t have any stamping ideas, but one thing I would like to pass on. I save the large salad plastic containers, clean up the labels and they make great clear storage containers. I put my Stickles bottles in one.

  40. My tip is to stamp several of a stamp while you are stamping and have all of your supplies out!! That way you can either make more than one card at a time or when you need to make your next card you already have several stamped images to choose from!! =)
