  1. I love these cards! The ‘I love your guts’ sentiment made me laugh because saying “I hate your guts” was probably one of the meanest things we said to one another when I was little. Yes, I am dating myself! Lol! I know my friends would get a kick out if it!

  2. You and Laura Bassen do such a good job of “stripping it up,” as she puts it! Love that! I need to remember to layer strips, tags, etc. I love the depth you get! Thanks for teaching me new things!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this, Jennifer! Absolutely incredible and such a fun way to relax and enjoy the process…seems like repetitive designs are such a wonderful way to de-stress cause there’s no right or wrong way…just what you feel like at that creating session. Hope you are doing well…having a hard time getting motivated during this crazy time. Sending hugs to Lila and YOU are BLESSING!!

  4. Amazing! I think my next purchase may be those strip dies. Loved the scene card that you made. Thanks for all you do!

  5. I LOVE what you’ve done with simple card strips! The boho circle stencil and the squares are my favorite. Thanks for the tips on how to cut the squares. Appreciate your videos so much. Constantly learning new techniques.

  6. Thanks (as always) for the inspiration. This was soothing to watch and even though some of it looked a bit tedious, you had beautiful results that I’m sure the recipient will appreciate!

  7. Thanks so much for sharing your technique! The tip about stamping on a strip is helpful! You make beautiful cards!

  8. How do you decide whether to keep scraps or not? Do you have a minimum size? I keep every little piece of special paper, but I get swamped with little bits of red, white, green, brown …

  9. Just wanted to say, this inspired me to do all kinds of stripey cards, including my Christmas ones! Such great ideas 🙂
    Hope to be able to afford some new stamps soon, as that introvert stamp set is SO ME! And I know even my extrovert friends would enjoy cards made with those.
