Worth Checking Out + Discount Code!

I have received a lot of emails from readers saying they like when I do my “Worth Checking Out” posts. Many say they like that I share links to other cardmakers and that I give a heads up to fun things happening in the crafting world. I agree – I enjoy sharing with you!

Check these out…

(1.) Gift Card Tag – I give gift cards to teachers often. This tag is a clever way to present one!

(2.) Pop Up Challenge – My friend Kathy Racoosin is the master of coloring. She recently offered a fun coloring Pop Up Challenge over on her blog. I am a bit late sharing it, but be sure to follow her blog for future challenges.

(3.) Wow! – (Really – that is the best word I could come with. Wow!) Check out this hand-drawn masterpiece! So pretty… and Payel makes great cards, too!

(4.) Yoonsun – Another cardmaker that impresses me over and over. This card is stunning.

(5.) I’m Her Biggest Fan – I have recently declared myself the president of Kay Miller‘s fan club. 🙂 She has oodles of talent.

(6.) Boy Card! – Everyone is always asking for good boy cards. This one is perfection. Francine is fantastic.

(7.) MFT Challenge Blog – My Favorite Things has a great inspiration blog. You must check it out! It is a happy place.

(8.) Stamptember! – OoooOoOoooooo… I love Stamptember! Stamptember is a big month of fun over at Simon Says Stamp with exclusive products, sales, inspiration and more. I can’t wait. I am constantly impressed by what Heidi and her team come up with. They do everything with heart.

(9.) Sequin Storage – People have been asking about what my recommended sequin storage is now that my favorite Craftmates are no longer being made. Honestly… I was planning on doing a video after trying out NINE different containers. However, I didn’t LOVE any of them, so I don’t feel right doing so. I will say the best option is likely THIS one. (You can find it at Simon Says Stamp or Amazon. Don’t let the price scare you too much – it holds A LOT.) I know a lot of people like it. Thankfully I have a lot of Craftmates so I am sticking with them. (You can still get the smaller Craftmates – I really like them!!!)

(10.) Watercolor for Card Makers: Exploring Mediums – We just announced our newest class over at Online Card Classes. People have been asking for more watercolor… so here it is!

(11.) Hallmark Scrapbook and Crafts – I have been exchanging emails recently from Jody from Hallmark Scrapbook and Crafts. Boy is she kind! I have heard great things about their store from many readers. As you know, I only recommend stores I feel very good about. And I will say I am impressed! Jody is offering my readers a great discount to try them out if you haven’t yet:

Use the code “JENINK10” now through 8/29/15 to get 10% off a Hallmark Scrapbook and Crafts.

(12.) Hang In There, Mommas – Just a friendly reminder. I know it helped me. #iamahotmess

Hope you have a great day. I will be back soon with a video!

  1. Thanks for sharing these!! I do enjoy reading your posts.. Waiting for Stamptember and Kathy’s coloring challenge.. Now off to check Payel!! Oh and I wanted to ask you this – How and when did you start involving your kids in crafting/coloring? My daughter is 20 months old and she’s very curious about my craft stuff 🙂 I’m wondering how to get her involved in coloring?


    Jennifer, you made my day!!! You are truly so kind and beautiful!! Thank you so much for featuring my card today. I am SO very honoured to be with you in the crafting world!

  5. There are so many things to check out that I don’t know where to start first! Some of them I already know about but there were others I didn’t know about. I love when all of you tell us about what you like because you write a blog and you have to know what’s best so you can tell all of us. Today was a busy day for me with a doctors appointment for dad and a hair cut and color for mom & I. I’m very tired right now and I am going to bed early but tomorrow I will check out all the sites you mentioned that I don’t know about. Nighty night!

  6. i am new to stamping and trying to find the best surface that will protect my table but will also give me the best image. I like the idea also of stamping on something with lines as I have not been too good with alignment. Any ideas?

  17. Okay, I’ll let you be President of the Kay Miller fan club. But I am VP, Secretary, AND Treasurer!! Her cards are fantastic.

  18. I thought I was Kay Miller’s biggest fan. You can be president, I’m definitely a groupie. LOVE her work!

  19. Thanks for the all the fun and interesting info. I’ve already signed up for the Watercolor class….been waiting for another one, since the last one was my favorite online class. I’ve spread the news to a couple of my crafting friends who plan to sign up as well!

  20. I can’t believe you let the cat out of the bag about my source for on sale Lawn Fawn. They usually have a deal and no one else does.

  21. It isn’t easy to only pick one favorite. because I wrote down 9 that I would like to buy. Guess I will have to go with the first one I wrote down which was Toboggan Together. Can anyone really choose just one. What a huge fun release this is. Thanks for showing us.

  22. Oh my…. I’m speechless to see my card here, between all the other beautiful creations made by these talented ladies! And, most of all, I’m so honored that YOU like my card! You are so kind! Thanks so much for featuring it. It warms my heart!
    I send you a big hug and smiles from Switzerland. <3

  23. I was able to make a couple more cards for the kindness challenge last! I’m bringing them to the nursing home where my grandma is and having the nurses hand them out to the residents that need them the most.
