  1. I have not done a lot of embossing so definitely need to get my stash out and start using some of these products. I always find such good tips from watching your videos. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I just love all of your videos but especially the end-of-the-year Crafty Things. It amazes me how you are so creative in coming up with different cards all the time.

  3. I haven’t heat embossed much since it intimidates me. I like embossing folders – my favorite is Memory Box’s Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder. It’s so intricate and pretty.

    Thanks for the video series and the giveaways!

  4. I LOVE using embossing folders, I have so many. After watching your video, I want a lot more!! Thank you for putting these videos together for us, they are awesome!!

  5. I’ve bought a number of the embossing folders and like the way they look, they just aren’t the first thing that I reach for so mine are underused. I need to use them more.

  6. Hi Jennifer,
    I only have enough money to buy one set of inks. I want ones that have shadowing properties. (like gradual color changes) and I would like your point about what one company I should go with. Yes, I know that you love many and they are all awesome!!. But I can only buy from one and need your help in picking the best one for shadowing and coloring, please!!
    Thank You,

    P.S. I bought all they Distress Ink Mini’s from Tim Holtz and they already dried up!! I was really disappointed!

  7. Can you recommend a good white cardstock to use when heat embossing? My cardstock always wrinkles so much….maybe I need a heavier weight?
