  1. Thanks so much for the chance to win some of your “hand me downs” or “pay it forwards”. I know it is a totally random thing, but winning some craft supplies would totally make my world such a brighter place. In the last 12 months I’ve mourned the deaths of 5 significant people, lost my home and had to move 500 miles from an established support system… So I’ve been a little gloomy.

    The Holidays were horrid, I was missing those lost, did not have the usual friends to celebrate with, being in a new town, and money was non-existent. So not only did I not get any gifts I could not make the charitable gifts that were traditional for me. 2018 has to be better, though the last of those deaths happened the morning of Dec. 31st; it was one hell of a way to ring in the New Year.

    On top of all this gloom and doom my own health has not been good, I am a little past my prime, but I feel like I am elderly already. Five years ago people consistently guessed my age 10 years to my junior, and questioned how young I must have been at the birth of my collegiate son; but now I look older than my years, and people read my stresses and pains in my features and even on a good day assume I am tired or in pain. So, a collection of stamps may seem like a small “act of kindness” to many but to me, it could provide a beacon of light in a pretty gloomy period. If I were to win this giveaway, I would be ever so thankful.

  2. I just can’t say enough good about the Heart Turnabout Stamp! I love hearts, and like to incorporate them into the kindness of as many personalized cards as I can.

  3. Wow. Everything looks so awesome. Thanks for the bevy of creative videos you recently released. The inspiration was awesome. I love the Altenew flowers but the Gina K cats and dogs are too adorable to pass up. I really enjoyed your video on the layered Altenew flower dies. How wonderful they look, especially with the embossing powder over them. Thanks for your inspiration.

  4. I love all the fun new stamps and goodies! My favorite is the heart turnabout stamp, it’ll be perfect for my Valentine’s cards. Thanks for all of your wonderful videos, I always learn something new and get inspired!

  5. I really like the new Gina K kit as well as all of her other products shown. My very favorite, though, is of course the Gemini Junior. I think that I will probably either save up for it or maybe ask for it as a birthday present. I started out with a Cuttlebug, but due to my disability resulting from a stroke it was too difficult to hold the machine and turn the handle, so I advanced to the Big Shot Express when it first came out and later received a Vagabond one year for Christmas; so I passed my Cuttlebug to one of my sisters and the Big Shot Express to my other sister. If I get a Gemini Jr. at some point, I guess my Vagabond will go to my Son and daughter-in-law, with my grand daughter and grandson; they are a more crafty family than my Daughter and son-in-law with two grandsons.

  6. Oh wow, it would be very difficult to pick just one or even two. They are all wonderful products that would be fun to play with. I’ve used a manual bigshot for years, but I would love to try the electric one or even the Gemini. Thanks Jennifer for all your fabulous videos and inspiration.

  7. Oh, hard choice! so many of the things you picked are on my wishlist! I think my fav is the Gina K cat set – sorry, Foxy, but in my universe cats rule! >^.^<

  8. I live so many of the new items, but by far my favorite is the neat and tangled beaver stamps! Adorable! Must have! I’d love to win the stamp sets!

  9. These sale alerts are so great! You first introduced me to the Birch Press layered backgrounds and I love the new “cherish” hearts for Valentine’s Day. I can never get enough hearts in my craft room.

  10. Although I’d love to own the big shot because I’ve suffered a stroke and it would make my life so much easier. I have to say I love all things Gina K! Thank u for this opportunity to win! I can’t imagine winning all those stamps. Good luck everyone!

  15. I would just LOVE Gemini Junior Die Cut Machine. I need a die cutting machine that can handle the intricate details.

  16. First Jennifer I am sorry for the health problems your family is dealing with. These unfortunate things have a way of grounding you and letting you know where your time is better spent. Besides your videos are worth waiting for, so don’t add guilt to your burden. I’m sure that when I say I will be thinking of you and praying for your family I will be joined by your immense card family too.
    I really do love Concord and 9th, and you introduced me! Thanks for allowing international comments.

  17. Is it wrong that I love them all? I don’t want to be right! 😍 I’m trying to be picky but dang, I’d pick them all!

  18. Jennifer, thanks for the opportunity to win something–improves this cold winter! I love your tutorials and always look forward to watching them. Your instructions are clear and easy to follow. The only thing hard is deciding which item I can buy this month… I just my cards could come out so clean and awesome — try, try again. Thanks for your inspiration and push to do better…

  19. I haven’t done any layered stamping yet, and those Altenew floral sets are calling my name. Would love a chance at those. Thanks for keeping us up on the new stuff, Jennifer!! 🙂

  20. Hi Jennifer, I love the “heartthrob set” !! I am a christian too! I have never won or even attempted to win one of these giveaways before! Since it is your stuff, I’m giving it a try. God Bless you for all you do for all of us! Terry

  21. Those new Gina K stamp sets are so adorable! But I really like the Neat n Tangled release And the Altenew kit release. I’m late for the sale but would sure love to get my hands on it.

  22. Thank You Jennifer for all your work and time getting the Crafty sales post together for us to find in one place. It is very much appreciated. Of the new things, Birch Press and Memory box are my favorite.
