  1. OH my goodness, that Vagabond!! Thank you so much for the chance to win! If I had to pick a favorite die, it would have to be the new Lawn Fawn bag die, would be fantastic for little valentine goodies for my daughter’s third grade class!

  2. I am so much more organized after watching your videos and applying your techniques. Thanks and I look forward to more.

  3. Hello there!
    Thank you for such wonderful videos!
    I’ve worked my way through your Favorite Things playlists from 2013 and 2014, and am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I just started making simple cards a few months ago as a hobby. and am trying to figure out the ‘essentials’ I should invest in since I’m operating on a student budget. Do you have any videos that cover the essential start-up products you would need to make a few good cards?
    Thank you again!!!

  4. Loved your videos! If I would have to pick a favorite (or favorites), it would be my Lil’ Inker stitched border dies. I use them all the time, especially the rectangles.

  5. Great video. I’m in love with the stitched edge dies but the one that makes me sigh every time I see it is the Waffle Flower Doilydie. It’s so dainty! I wish they would make stitched edge dies to cut mats for photos for scrapbooking.
