  1. Great video. I enjoy these 10 minute cards! Your cards are beautifully done as always. Thank you so much for sharing all your inspiration. Now if only I had all the goodies you do! hmmmm…. Happy Day!

  2. I love these sprays that you demonstrated. What beautiful backgrounds made with them. I really liked the autumn looking one but then the second one blew me away. I need to get some of these and play. Thank you so much.

  3. Beautiful cards Jennifer. I love to watch you create in 10 mins, or 100 mins…my interest is always held! Thanks, as always for sharing your talents.

  4. The spray background w/ the leaf background die is beautiful. I used to look forward to Tim’s videos on new products and how to use them (he’s a great teacher w/ a creative mind), but I quit watching when he started 2 1/2 hr live-stream videos (who has that kind of time?). Thus, I haven’t bought any new Distress products since the oxides were released.

  5. Jennifer these cards are gorgeous and quick! That is wonderful! I love the flowers on the first card! I’m thinking up a plan to do my holiday cards with this quick technique! Thank you!

  6. Jennifer, I love every video you make and would watch if it was 10 hours long! In fact, I think you should do voice-overs for other people’s videos!! 😀

  7. HI, JM – Thanks for the short video. I had something like 92 emails in the inbox today and most of them were for crafting. I appreciate that your video was short and I really liked the content. I don’t have any of the Mica sprays yet, and now I see how they are different from the others. I have not watched the TH videos b/c they are so long and even sped-up, they still take more time than I can give to them. So this was perfect! Please do more of the shorter-length videos.
    Your cards are beautiful!!
