  1. I just love watching and learning from your videos. You are amazing! I too love embossing folders and think they get over looked. I have some embossing powders and need to use them more than I do.

  2. Love your crafty things videos. Thank you for sharing the embossing folders and powders. Few more things added to my list from your series.

  3. My favorites are Hero Arts (white and clear), Ranger SuperFine Detail White, and an old, old, old SU! called Gold Glory. I’d love to try the sparkly embossing powders.

  4. Thanks for another informative video! I am going to have to try that Holographic paper. Maybe after the Holidays, I will have more “me” time.

  5. I agree that embossing folders do add extra interest and texture to your card projects and I’ve been enjoying the newer 3D folders! My go to embossing powders have been Ranger, WoW and Emerald Creek, I’ll have to check out Hero Arts and Brutus Monroe! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Love all these samples. Thank you so much! Will definitely be getting Quilted Hearts when it comes back in stock. I’m wondering if you happen to know of a “Gilver” Embossing powder? I had some from a long time ago in a box w/o the label and now I don’t know where to get more. It’s not quite Gold and not quite Silver. I’m not sure which/whose to try to achieve this look. Thanks in advance if you happen to have any suggestions and if not, thanks for all your great ideas! My stamp club talks as if you’re one of our members, lol since we reference your videos so often.

  7. Another great video! I really enjoy your favorite crafty things series. I always learn about new products like those great Brutus Monroe embossing powders along with some embossing folders I hadn’t seen before. Thanks!

  8. I have embossing powders from Hero Arts and Ranger, but have never tried Brutus Monroe, but have been hearing good reviews, so will need to try some when my current supply runs out.

  9. I am brand new to card making. I have just started to learn about embossing, and so far I love it! I only have a few powders, and have some WOW reds coming for Valentines cards. You make it look so easy! I look forward to learning your art, Jennifer. My daughter introduced me to your channel. So glad she did! May God continue to bless you, your family, and your business! Hugs, Lisa

  10. Thanks for the ideas. I’ve seen you and others using the Brutus Monroe powders and now they’re on my wishlist!

  11. Love to use embossing folders. Great to get new
    ideas for using them. thanks for the video.
    Merry Christmas and have a happy new year.

  12. I don’t use my embossing folders near enough, but will look at them with a new inspiration. Thank you for your videos, it keeps me interested in the craft.

  13. Enjoy your yearly ‘Favorites” videos each year. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in techniques and not focus on the products which produce the best results. Thanks!

  14. Oooooo – sparkly embossing powders! Love them!! And more possibilities for my embossing folder collection! Thank you!

  15. I really should be thinking about gifts for others right now, but I could make a pretty long list for myself after watching this! Thank you so much for the time you put in!

  18. Hi Jennifer. I homeschool my son and learning from you has helped my learning curve enormously. The tools and suggestions you give have been paramount to me. I’m using up old embossing supplies so I can purchase BM you love. I wish he sold his 130# in bulk. You are appreciated my me.

  19. l love your site and get in so much trouble. Have to force my self to do other needed things. awaiting my mini for more embossing. will probably never by another card again

  20. I look forward to your videos! Your presentation style and pace make it a joy to watch and learn from your videos. I use my embossing folders quite a bit, but I have gotten out of the habit of heat embossing because I haven’t had stellar results. I will try changing powders to some of your recommended ones and hopefully I will have better results!
    Thank you for sharing your love of crafting!

  21. These videos are reminding me to pull out some old favorites that got pushed aside. And also great when I need a fast card.

  22. I was not familiar with Brutus Monroe embossing powders and am really impressed. Thanks for your videos, this one and all the others in the favorites series.

  23. Thanks, this inspires me to break out my heat gun! I love embossing powders, although I don’t always get results as good as yours. I think that creative detailer tool needs to get on my wishlist!

  24. Thank you for your recommendations! I have never used embossing folders, so that will become my 2020 obsession. Well, one of them.
