  1. Great video. I love embossing folders. As for embossing powders, I have a bunch from Ranger Wendy Vecchi, and the colors are great but all of them are opaque. I think I need to get the Wow shimmery ones! Happy Holidays 🙂

  2. So glad you included embossing folders. I sometimes think they are the unsung heroes of our craft. They never wear our and rarely go out of style. I just pulled one out today as I was trying to find a special look for a “bare” card front. I also agree that if you buy quality embossing powder, it will last for a very long time. I have some that I have had for almost twenty years, used it yesterday and it was beautiful!

  3. It was really nice to see all the embossing powders together in one video for a comparison along with the embossing folders. Enjoyed watching this video. Helps to decide what to purchase.

  4. Your favorites have turned out to be many of mine. Thanks for taking the time to sort through them all, and share your honest feedback.

  5. Thank you for showing all of these cool embossing powders! I really like the Marshmallow Puff powder by Brutus Monroe!

  6. I have so many embossing folders, I just forget to use them. Thanks for the reminder of how pretty they can be. Also I need to use my embossing powders more too.

  7. Brutus Monroe has come a long way. I bought his first stamp set 5 years ago. Love that he has grown!! Thank you for the chance to win.

  8. Thank you for showing the different colors of embossing powders. Choosing the color that I want when shopping is very challenging for me. I loved the 3-D embossing folders! What a neat product!!

  9. This video series is so dangerous for my wallet! But I love it anyway! Thanks for the extremely thorough job explaining and demonstrating everything

  10. I’m so happy you did this video on embossing folders! I love them & have quite a collection but the marbling one is new to me & a must buy. Thank you.

  11. I’ve never tried some of the Embossing powders you’ve shown here. I’m loving the results. And the Embossing folders are gorgeous. Thank you for the video.

  12. Thank you for these videos of your favorite craft supplies. Love all your videos. I cased 2 of your Christmas Card techniques for my cards this year.

  13. Can’t thank you enough for sharing, it reminds me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. I am just beginning to explore embossing. Your video are such a joy.

  14. Brutus Monroe Fairy Dust Embossing Powder looks awesome! I love embossing folders too… they add such a great look to a card!

  15. Thanks for this video, Jennifer. I do both dry and heat embossing and love the possibilities these techniques offer. Your video has reminded me to do more dry embossing — I’ve gotten away from it and have a large collection. You’ve shared some brands I haven’t used so I look forward to trying the specialties they offer.

  16. I love the video as it was so helpful. I didn’t know there was so many embossing powders. I love the sparkly ones.

  17. I have been watching your videos for about three years. And I really enjoy your year end favorite things. I love using embossing folders. I see now I may need some more.

  18. I have just recently heard about Brutus Monroe and have yet to try his products. Thanks for a chance to win some. I love your series and look forward to it every year.

  19. I really “oohed” and “ aahhed” at so many products today. I especially loved the marble embossing folder and lots of the powders. I can’t wait to try them! Once again thanks for your videos. I really appreciate them.

  20. So many different embossing powders-love all the sparkle and iridescent ones. Thank you for giving so much time to put this series together!

  21. Thank you so much for putting together all these favorite crafty videos. There is so much product out there that it is so nice to have an expert try them out and share the favorites. Also means more items added to my list. You’re so fun and interesting to watch.

  22. I love the Marble embossing folder from Creative Expressions , the Buffalo Plaid folder from Sunny Studios and the Heart Bouquet folder from Memory Box, and want to add these to my stash! I find I’m using more embossing folders now for the very reason you mentioned! Most times it’s just the right finishing touch on a card. The heat embossing is always a favorite technique as well. I need to check out some of the Brutus Monroe and other specialty embossing powders!

  23. Such a great video! I have lots of embossing folders but I don’t have any that are 3D…Christmas list.
    Thanks for sharing…

  24. I love the dimension that embossing folders add to paper and how they make such great backgrounds. I love embossing too and use it on so many projects. Thanks for your great comparisons and tips !

  25. Love embossing powders!!I think for sentiments nothing beats embossing. I need to use my embossing folders more often – I don’t have many yet so this list is perfect:-) thank you!

  26. I fall in love with embossing all over again when watching a video like this. Using an embossing folder to add texture to a card takes it to the next level and embossing powder is still like magic to me. Thanks for all of the great information!

  27. I have a collection of Hero Arts powders but only one Brutus Monroe, the Alabaster Kristina recommends. I love using embossing folders: inexpensive, esp with coupons, and great addition to my cards.

  28. I love watching your shows on YouTube. You make it look so easy. Your creativity is awesome. I try so hard to do like you Batman don’t turn out so well. But I’ll keep on trying and keep on watching you

  29. Love your suggestions! I have used your videos to narrow in on which products to buy. Love the 101 embossing powder and the marshmallow puff!

  30. Thank you so much for sharing you knowledge with me. I have learned so much over the past few months watching your videos and then practicing what I learned.

  31. Jennifer,
    You are one of two vloggers from whom I have learned so much! Your favorite things of the year videos almost always result in my having to buy recommendations you’ve made. I don’t know how you have the time to do all you do … you are truly inspirational! Happy Holidays to you and your family.
