  1. Thanks for the great video and all your tips. I have learned SO much from you and do appreciate your willingness to give of yourself and your knowledge. I’ll try some of the tips that are not what I’ve been doing like the die-cutting and then stamping afterwards. If you are making a lot of cards that would really simplify the process. Again, thanks so much for your good thoughts.

  2. You continue to surprise me with your creative ideas. Especially appreciate when you show multiple ways to use the design. I’ve reached the point (at 82 yrs) when my budget says I need to make better use of what I already have. I’ve been crafting most of my life, but still, any technique takes practice. You make it look so easy, I often expect to have the same results. Thank you for all the great videos. Keep well.

  3. Hi Jennifer 🙂 You’ve been one beautifully busy lady!!! These cards are astounding…color palettes, composition, depth, movement and embellishments! Just WOW! Thanks for all the inspiration 🙂

  4. Hello Jennifer. I love watching your videos. I just discovered you on youtube a few months ago now and I must say I have been a little obsessed! You have helped me with so many useful tools and tips with your videos. I wish I had discovered you sooner! I really appreciate your style and you are a wonderful teacher. I could have saved a lot of label tape over the years had I known about the chain printing-LOL! Anyway, wanted to take the time to say thank you for all you do!

  5. I am just beginning to make cards and your videos are such a great help!! Love your beautiful cards and especially the die cuts. The Pink Fresh collections are beautiful.

  6. Your cards in this segment with florals is inspiring and ideal for the season. The products used are beautiful and wonderful to add to the craft collector. I say inspiring because many of the products you have shown and what you could creatively do with them has made me see a different way of crafting, and the ideal tools to achieve the ideal results. Thank you!

  7. What a great informative video. Thank you so much for the tips. I always learn something from you. Thank you for sharing your talent. The cards are lovely.

  8. Absolutely Love your “tips, tricks, & hacks” videos!! You always have some amazing ideas. I do have a question… in your videos you stack die cut words together to give them more dimension, what weight of paper do you use for that? I have tried to do it with some of my card stock and it always turns out looking like a 2 year old has glued it together… Thank you for Everything!

    1. Awesome video as usual. I already know and implement some of these thanks to other videos from you. I sometimes die cut the sentiment from the backing card stock but didn’t do this if I didn’t need a sentiment. Didn’t occur to me to cut one out anyway and keep it for a future card. Duh! (Slapping forehead). Thanks so much for sharing.

  9. I loooovvvveeee your blog and all of your amazing artwork! One day I hope to by just like you! You are so inspiring and I know you have a big heart. I always look forward to all of your crafts when you make something new. I am a freshman in college and I have always wanted to do crafts full time,but didn’t think I could make it a real job, but then I saw you. I hope to one day be like you and Tim Holtz cause I sure do have a lot of good ideas! Much love💖

  10. Beautiful cards! Love how the backgrounds coordinate with the focal images on the first few! Thanks for the tips!

  11. Wonderful cards !! there is so many spring in your cards ! Thank you because we definitely need it right now .

  12. These are so beautiful! I love the bold bright colors you’ve used and the various designs!

  13. This might be my favorite product release yet! Love the flowers and sentiments and the ink colors are gorgeous!

  14. Jennifer, you are such a creative card maker. I really love your videos, and refer to them often for inspiration. I also love that you describe yourself as a Christian first.

  15. Jennifer….how do you do it…over and over again…I think you brain never shuts down…so many wonderful tips here that I will definitely put to use. Thanks for also showing us that you make mistakes…..makes me feel better for sure. And as you know often times it becomes a gift. Thanks for being here mostly every day….A ray of SUNSHINE.

    Massive Hugs
    Vickie

  16. I truly loved all your tricks for saving time and card stock. That was awesome, just like your beautiful cards!

  17. Love these gorgeous cards and wonderful techniques and tips. Great stamps and dies! Thanks for the wonderful video!

  18. I love the hell card. You gave me so many ideas on how to use my dies. Thank you for this great video. The new products are so pretty. Can’t wait to get them.

  19. Great tips thank you. I would make more cards if I took advantage of these tricks. How do you organize your scraps waiting to be used. I have a box they go in but they just get lost and I find I never use them.

  20. An another awesome video, thanks for all the great tips Jennifer. I really enjoy the videos you produce and your cards too!

  21. A really helpful Video, thanks for the great tips. Love the new Pinkfresh stamps and dies

  22. I am new to card making and I have watched about ten of your videos today! My mind is on overload! 🙄 You explain things and make it look so easy. I need to get started but I have that fear of failure! I watched the best tools of 2019 1 & 2. Do you have a discount code for the Misti or the Tim Holtz glass work surface. Those ideas look!like they would be great for a beginner.
    Please keep the videos coming! They are great!q
    Have a blessed evening💙

  23. I just saw these today when shopping and wondered what they would look like. Thanks so much for sharing

  24. Great time-saving tips, tricks, and hacks! Love all the cards you created using these new Pinkfresh products. Such a wonderful release!

  25. Beautiful cards as always, and so colourful! I love the spring simplicity of the You’re A Whole Lot of Awesome card!

  26. The chevron background stamp is amazing! As are all of the cards, and all of your tutorial videos! Thanks for sharing, Jennifer.

  27. What great time and supply saver tips. I have been using some of them for a while, but you always show me more wonderful ways to create better and more beautiful crafts, You never cease to amaze me as to where and how you come up with these great ideas. Thank you for keeping this hobby so fresh and exciting!

  28. How do you store the paper die cuts to be used later? I am trying to figure out a way to keep them organized and easy to find without spending money… love your ideas!

  29. I learned a lot watching this particular video on time saving hacks. I made sure to apply them right away and got to work making some mother’s day cards. Thanks for sharing.

  30. You’re such a font of knowledge. One of the things I appreciate about your videos is how you’re open about things that you’re not sure about/don’t like (like the super stripey background with the bouquet. Seeing how you work through the things that aren’t your favorite helps me figure out how to do the same. And it reminds me that even if it isn’t my favorite card that I ever made, friends appreciate the effort and the love that went into it. 😀

  31. Your cards are so amazing! I follow you closely for my favorite inspirations and know you are making boxes of cards to give away to the frontline!! You have the most giving heart of a anyone I know. I pray you and your family stay strong, stay safe and stay healthy! Love the cards from today. Hugs and thanks for all you have taught me over the years,!💌🙏💕

  32. Thanks for one FANTASTIC video. I am on my second viewing. More Please!

    Health care workers are getting their share of appreciation, I hope. But I want to mention the “locked-away” citizens of this nation-the elderly in Nursing Homes! I understand it is for his safety but my father (a 96 year old Navy Vet) is not doing well. He is lonely and forlorn. I am sending cards to him and to some others with him. Can you get the word out? (And maybe you have and I missed it!) Blessings!

  33. Fabulous video & tips & time savers! Also what a fabulous release this is! Love your cards

  34. The tips, as always, are helpful and the cards amazing. I am a super fan of Pink Fresh Studio and always appreciate your inspiration.

  35. Jennifer, thank you so much for ALL of the great tips & tricks! I LOVE your cards. A great release fro Pink Fresh Studio!! Stay safe & healthy!!

  36. Beautiful cards and great tips!!! Thank you for sharing them. I esp love that last card. Great use of the negative die cut pieces.
