  1. Hi, Jennifer – Looks like we both like butterflies! Your cards are just splendidly beautiful, as always. I ordered all the butterfly items and am glad I did b/c now they will sell out! I don’t do foiling at this time but am figuring on having my husband purchase the add-on foiling system for the Gemini Jr. for Xmas this year.

    Thanks for always sharing your marvelous ideas! We appreciate it and you!

  2. Love the great foiling ideas and PinkFresh sets. I have the Gemini Jr system I use for foiling…really gives professional results for amazing cards and other creations.

    .FYI the foiling on your plates can be completely removed by using 100% Acetone finger nail polish remover!

  3. Love your fabulous cards and your so informative video!! I can not do it without your details and tips! That oval blanket stitch die set is a must! Have that in my cart already! thank you again for all of your helpful videos!

  4. This technique is amazing. I learn something every time I watch you. Did not know that you could foil acetate and vellum. I loved this look. So pretty and delicate. Thank you so much for showing us this.

  5. Love these cards, PinkFresh Studio has really stepped it up, with foiling, stamps, dies and the stencils which makes it so easy to color. Thank you for showing ways to use use them all.

  6. I can’t wait to try these techniques … I know you are an engineer by trade (I am most certainly not) … I am amazed when I see you layer up the 4 layers for the shaker card. Is there a trick to creating the 4 layers so the line up?

  7. Awesome 👌 Awesome always. I had a request!! Is it possible for you to do a video on how you take such professional pics of your cards please!!

  8. Awesome video, love the use of acetate and vellum.
    The butterfly collections are fabulous, especialy the Butterfly collection. That big butterfly is sooo beautiful.
    QUESTION: Can you use heat resistant acetate and vellum to foil with a laminator?
    Thank you so much for the great inspirational video, stay safe and have a wonderful day.

  9. Jennifer, Hello! I just have to say I admire you ! Your so talented and a wonderful young lady, always inspiring others and reminding us to be grateful n thankful! I appreciate the way you always remind us to use what we have on hand but if we really want a new product you list the names of the company and how to get it; that’s so helpful. I watch n love all your videos you are the most creative artist for me.I really like your honesty and it’s nice that you share personal information it shows a level of trust.God Bless you!keep creating & sharing& just be you.

  10. I’m hoping you can help me. I posted this question on the Share Handmade Kindness FB page, but it was declined for some reason. When I use the Spellbinders Hot Foil machine I get a lot of extra foil on my paper. It will not brush off or scrape off. I asked for tips and tricks on the FB page, but, like I said, it was declined so I am not able to get help there. Hope you can help! Thank you!!
