  1. Oh, my, those crayons and boxes look so real! How delightful! Wish I could win the lottery and buy them!

  2. Oh boy…these are wonderful (farewell crafty budget notion–C&9 have derailed my plans again!). Thanks so much for another wondeful video!

  3. Being a retired teacher this set thrills me! SO SO cute! …. but…. I am very disappointed that the die set has only one crayon die! I see all the crayons you made and think it must have taken FOREVER! For this reason I’m going to hold off on purchasing. Could you use your influence, Jennifer, to try to convince Concord to make a set with say… 5 dies…. to make 5 crayons at a time? It would be SO much more convenient!

  4. Fantastic inspiration off you & Concord & 9th. These sets are so well thought through & designed, who could not adore them. Your examples are stunning, so colourful & fun. Thank you for the step by step video it’s much appreciated. I know you are extremely busy with many projects but if you do have time please make a video with that adorable bag, it looks amazing. Stay safe, healthy & most importantly happy x

  5. Who doesn’t love opening a new box of crayons! These ideas are great. I do so appreciate you sharing ideas for using our dies in multiple ways.

  6. Oh for cute! I never thought of using felt. I think I’m going to try these. You are such a talented teacher. Thank you.

  7. Almost every time I try to order something you’ve demonstrated for SSS; it is out of stock. Not fun. Makes me wonder if they are out of stock when you demo? Can’t sell out on your first post! 😐

  8. you’re amazing how you come up with all those creative ideas. sometimes i have a hard time coming up with one card. it seems ok, when its in my head, but once i put it on the paper, it does look as good. i was wondering how you do it. do you always like all of yor creations or you put some of them in the back drawer? thank you for all your inspiration. it keeps me going when i feel like giving up.

  9. I am in LOVE with these dies! So much fun and so versatile!! Sold out but that’s ok for now…will wait patiently! These are incredible, Jennifer and so much fun and happy!! YOU COLOR my WORLD and YOU are BLESSING!!

  10. Love all of these and they are so cute. So many ways to use our dies I am going to have to look at mine and see what I can come up with thanks for all the tips and suggestions

  11. So cute and lovely cards for teachers. Thank you for showing us how to make a pull tab without buying expensive dies. This means allot to me as I am on a fixed income.

  12. Hi Jennifer,

    Love the great ideas! Question unrelated to this blog, but who makes the pouches that you store your copic markers in? I can’t seem to find them anywhere. Thanks for the help,

  13. Such clever and colorful ideas! Thanks for the tip about lining up the crayons on a piece of scrap before adding them to the card. It’s a great tip to use with other die cuts, too, and should certainly make life a bit easier.

  14. The crayon die and stamp sets are so adorable! I wish I had this when my kids were still little! (I may have to get it anyway… A good box of crayons still makes me smile.) You do such a wonderful job of providing other ideas and options beyond the obvious or the ones you show. Thank you for that!

  15. These are all so amazing! I have a crayon die set from another company and now the wheels are turning on how to get more mileage out of them. Thank you for sharing your creativity so freely with us!

  16. Stunning cards Jennifer, I love the bright happy colours you used and the great way you showed how to make more out of your dies.
    Thank you so much for the great video and examples. Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.
