  1. I love this video I used to heat emboss cards about 10 years ago and had forgotten that I still had some powders I had a massive stroke 2 years ago so haven’t been able to craft and my husband has taken away my heat gun as I’m not safe anymore but really great to be reminded of these thanks xx

  9. I love how you present the videos. Very clear and tons of different ideas and techniques! Love, love your videos! ❤

  10. I love heat embossing and embossing folders. They’re two of my favorite techniques. I recently purchased my first Brutus Monroe embossing powder in “Gilded,” which I’ve seen Kristina Werner use. I haven’t had much time in my craft room lately, but I can’t wait to try it.

  11. Can’t wait to watch! I love Sunny Studio and Taylored Expressions embossing folders! And Brutus Monroe and Gina K embossing powders are the best!


  13. I do like Brutus Monroe embossing powders because they have a shorter, wider jar, the opening is nice and large for pouring unused powder back into the jar, something I struggle with because of my arthritis.

  14. Hanks so much for your valuable info on all these great products 👏👏👏 I have not used Brutus Monroe embossing powders but they are on my wish list as well as Gina K powders. Love your video with Gina K’s daughter ❤️👍

  15. Jennifer, you are so generous and giving with your time and talent! I have watched every video I can find that you have made and have learned so much from you. Thanks as always for sharing with your community!

  16. Just goes to show you that I do need to use my embossing folders more. Forget about them but this was super helpful. Thank you, once again.

  17. just to add to your recommendation of the HA heat gun – mine is over 20 years old and still going strong and I also agree with you on the HA powders – best on the market!

  18. I adore all the Brutus Monroe embossing powders, they have been my favorites for a while now. I was excited to see the Night Shift Embossing Powders and can’t wait to try them. Thanks for another great video!!

  19. Dear Jennifer, I truly love your video’s a lot and learning all the time. Please keep going on. Every day I’m angeous looking forward to your next one. I adore your percise working which results in cards that look printed. I’m a real fan, watching your video’s every day in the Netherlands!

  20. Always appreciate your ‘favorite crrafy things’. Such great info on products. Helps me make my.decisions on what to purchase.

  21. Thank you once again, Jennifer! I started out buying less-than-superior embossing powders (mostly just didn’t know any better), and have long experienced buyer’s remorse with them. I don’t use them now, as they’re just not that good, but I still hate the thought of throwing them out & just wasting them. I may bite the bullet and do just that one of these days, though. Gotta make room for more, high-quality embossing powders! LOL I hope y’all are having a wonderful Christmas season so far. Take care, & have an awesome day! 🙂 ~ Andrea

  22. Thank you, Jennifer! Your blog is ALWAYS so much fun to read and so inspiring! After reading and watching, I’m motivated to get going on some new projects! Thanks for your generous giveaway!

  23. I do love the price point on embossing folders. And I’ve become a fan of embossing powders and their different textures.

  24. I always learn so much from your videos and blog! I mentally run thru what I have that I can try a technique with, or add your recommendations to my wish list. Thanks so much for the lessons and inspiration. I get so many compliments on my projects since watching you!

  25. A few things I need to try. I am actually not happy with my embossing powders lately, need to try an new brand.
