  1. I always look forward to your posts! Beautiful cards. I’m very intrigued by the slim lines. Thank you for all the info.

      1. I always enjoy your posts and videos. Your cards are always very pretty. I would love to know how you got started doing this. I have no idea how to do videos or voice overs and would sure like to learn.

  2. Wow such pretty cards and love the split card in the middle. Brilliant!! Am a HUGE slimline fan!! Have always liked making shaped cards but this is becoming my favourite now. Especially luvin’ the stencils!! Brilliant!!!

  3. I haven’t tried a Slim Line Card yet nor do I have any Pinkfresh stamps or dies. I would love to give them a go!!!
    Your cards are amazing!!!

  4. You always have the greatest blog ideas, Jennifer! Your videos are so explicit, yet easy to follow, even for a beginner. And I totally love this release from Pinkfresh. After watching your vids and a couple others, I ordered over $200 worth of product. Can’t wait till it arrives so i can play! Your cards are just stunning, and I really like your trifolds and the way you adhered the letter sentiment over the fold. Thanks for your lengthy (!) yet always inspiring posts!

  5. Beautiful Examples as always! You are truly inspiring. I can’t wait until my Pinkfresh goodies arrive to play with them. Thanks for the great ideas

  6. These are beautiful , unique and a fun way to create the slimline cards. Pinkfresh Studio has been a leader in creating products for this and I love these designs!

  7. So great to see your enthusiasm for the craft and all the techniques you share for using the various products. Thanks for showcasing the layering stencils and slimline cards.

  8. Thanks for the folding tips for slimlines. I think the new stencils are among my favorites. SO much to see and love.
    Blessings,
    Karen L

  9. Thanks so much for the great tips on making slimline cards as well as sharing the wonderful new products from Pinkfresh Studio! I love all the new stencils (especially the overlays for the stamp sets and the new diamond plaid stencil)! My favorite card you made today is the Merry & Bright one. I really like the way you cut out the shimmery leaves to use as accents and the bold design of the greeting!

  10. Once again gorgeous cards Jennifer. Thank you for all the information on slimline cards.
    I really appreciate all the work you put into your videos for us.
    Another fabulous release from Pinkfresh Studios.
    Thank you again for the inspiration.
    Keep well.

  11. Thanks for the ideas on Slimline cards. They have become my new favorite, but it didn’t cross my mind to do different folds. Your cards are beautiful as usual.

  12. I love your beautiful slimline cards, Jennifer! Thanks so much for all the info on sizes too. I really like making a different sized card now & then. Makes me have to think more!! 😊

  13. Thank you for all the inspiration & advice you have given in this video. The card designs are brilliant, I must invest in some of the awesome stencils x

  14. I love this release, but then again, I love Pink Fresh Studio, so, maybe I’m a little biased! The things I like most about this release are the frames and matching dies. I often cut out a die, then want to cut out white card stock to add my message. With these, you have the die that cuts out the perfect shape from the middle! Genius! I wish more companies would do this. I love the Merry and Bright set. Again, it’s how the dies cut right up to the letters. Great job Pink Fresh.

  15. I haven’t made any slimline cards yet, mainly because I try to participate in card drives and they require A2 cards. However, your video inspired me to try it. This Pinkfresh release is amazing and I thing those layering stencils are genius!

  16. I haven’t ventured into slimline cards yet, but seeing what PF has introduced in this release is making me think I should. I am so impressed with this release & the slimline dies they’d already introduced. I especially love the stencils. The light grey of the stencils you used in your first card looks wonderful.

  17. Such a fantastic video Jennifer, I learned so much about slimline cards from you today! The cards you created are gorgeous and I am in love with the new Pinkfresh release. I’ll be trying out some of your techniques when my order from Pinkfresh arrives. Thank you for the fantastic inspiration!!!

  18. Fabulous video. I had no idea to even think layering stencils could be used in such different ways. I love this Pink Fresh Studios release. It’s very cheery.

  19. I wouldn’t have seen these products or the blog hop if it weren’t for me following you. I really like the products you showed am looking forward to trying them.

  20. Gorgeous inspired and inspiring showcases of this innovative release! I love slimlines and have nearly all those PFS; looking forward to welcoming some stamps/stencils + dies into my collection!
