  1. I love the monogram set from Concord & 9th!! So many possibilities and I love how they think through all the different options you can make.

  2. My favorite is the Concord and 9th release. I have a couple items there I am considering. The monograms are beautiful!

  3. I love the Gina K stamps. I have 5 furchildren and they are very spoiled. All sleep with us at night and love a lap during the day. My littlest loves to lay in a pet bed under my work table in the studio while I ‘work’. Thank you for the opportunity to win new stamps.

  4. Love everything. Hard to pick just one thing. Each has its own “favorite” quality. 🤔 I guess the Gemini Junior is my have to choice for favorite in this post. 😊 Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  5. The neat and tangled A-mazing stamp set It has so many beautiful sentiments!! There are so many encouraging messages. Just beautiful things to say to someone!!

  6. I like the new Gina K stamps with the cats and dogs. Everybody in my family are animal lovers so I would get a lot of use out of these.

  7. I just love the Koala. There are so many cards that it could be used on, kids, hugs, valentine day, not feeling well. It just brings a smile to my face.

  8. I am in love with a whole bunch of stuff that you showed. Way to much, I’m afraid. I love the cats and dogs stamps. I used to have a cat and a dog but they both died at age 16 in the 80’s. We never got any more because every time we went on vacation we had to either leave them with someone or have someone come over our house to let them out and feed them. We couldn’t take them with us because hotels and motels wouldn’t allow that then. With these stamps I can have fun with them but I don’t have to feed them, take them for a walk, clean up after them or make sure they get their shots and they can’t have puppies and kittens. These are the perfect pets! LOL
    I love the Birch Press sentiments. You can never have to many sentiments. I also love the Neat & Tangled geometric stencil. That would be fun to use.
    Thanks for showing us all the new things and letting us have the chance to win something.

  9. It’s so hard to pick just one. I really love the Gemini Junior. I am planning on getting one for my friend Karla. She suffers from arthritis and has trouble cranking the handles on her die cutting machine. And I think this will help her very much. Thank you, Darlene Renshaw

  10. Tough choice! I think my favorite would be the Concord & 9th Heart Turnabout stamp and love dies. Thank you, Jennifer!

  11. I really want the Gemini Jr. I keep seeing it self feed and I think wow that could really save me a lot of time. Can’t. Wait for your video on how it works. Thanks for all the videos you do! Much love

  12. So many great products. It’s hard to catch up on everything and I loved this feature. I’d have to say the Birch Press layering dies also make my heart swoon and if I’d have to pick just one it would be the cherish set!

  13. I’m excited about the Geini Junior. Cat wait to see your video. It is my favorite out of all the new stuff here. Thx!

  14. Anything by Gina K is always going to be my favorite. Besides that, she lives in Wisconsin an d I’m from Wisconsin so I have to support my “home girl”! 🙂

  15. I’m so new to card making. I would be thankful for anything. I make cards for our troops and I would use anything to help me make nice cards for these troops. They deserve the best and love hand made cards from home. TY

  16. Concord &9th, I don’t know how they do it but they come up with the most adorable unique designs! I think they might be my favorite!😍 of course I’d like one of everything else too 🤦🏼‍♀️ .

  17. I would love to own one of the Birch Press and Memory Box amazing dies and stamp sets especially the CHERISH PLATE LAYER SET Craft Dies. It is difficult to make a choice when your videos make me want to buy all the new
    products you use. Thank you for your inspiration.

  18. Wow! thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies – it is appreciated. Thanks also for letting us know about the new releases and crafty sales. There are lots of new goodies in your blog. My favorite would have to be the Birch Press Wishing You the Best stamp set as there are some beautiful sentiments in the set.

  19. this is my favorite video. I wait for it everyday and then go and try to make the same cards. you are the pest and to the point teacher. Ive been crafting for a long time and you are the best. I love the products too. and I have a lot. I’m just now getting into stamping and I love it. keep up the good work I know I”m not the only one who thinks your great.

  21. I really like the Gina K set. And the price point is perfect. Thanks for always letting us know about other offers. SO helpful.

  22. You’re so generous Jennifer and I so appreciate all of your amazing videos! Thank you id have to say my favorite would be the die cut machine. I have been saving money for one for about 6 months, but think I’m getting close to having enough for a cuttlebug, but these look wonderful. Would II be happier to keep saving and get the one of my dreams? I’m 67 now and afraid if I save too long I may be too old to use it :). Again thank you for your generosity in all that you do.

  23. I would love the Gemini Junior. I’m still using my Cuttlebug. Thanks for the videos! If you are still having back problems, I suggest seeing a Chiropractor. Certainly helps me.

  24. This is a tough one to decide, so many fun and beautiful things!! I always look forward to the concord and 9th release, anything love and hugs and hearts, so I think that is probably my favorite, the love and hugs stamp and the heart turnabout Stamp! Thanks for sharing!!
