  1. Jennifer, I just want to tell you again that I am grateful for you. In so many ways. Thank you for being real. And for inspiring me to create and bless as many as I can as a way to deal with this numbness that I feel regarding the recent events and the real fear I have for all of my friends and family members living thousands of miles from me. My heart is with the USA today.♥️ 🇨🇦

  2. I actually just made a background with die cuts and loved it so much that I made copy to have a template so that I can do it again—also laminated it😀 Fabulous video on this!

  3. Love these cards and hints. Another way to find a center is to use a centering ruler like Westcott Plastic Ruler 12″-Zero Centering on Amazon. I use centering tapes on my weaving looms and find them so useful. A very visual tool.
    Thanks for all of your efforts to be real.

  4. Thank you for sharing your video, and helping us find ways to share kindness.. I have friends and family teaching and you have inspired me to reach out with a card or a phone call.

  5. Hi Jennifer, I just wanted you to know that your affiliate link to the Altenew bundle on the top of your list is invalid.

  6. Thank you so much for your heartfelt thoughts and accompanying video. My daughters were at Columbine HS 23 years ago, and our hearts break each time another child, family, or teacher has to go through this senseless trauma. You have reminded me that, as cardmakers, we can make an impact on other’s lives, and perhaps help ease our own despair in doing so. Thank you for your inspiration and humanity.
    🧡

  7. Love these cards, I work in the office of an elementary school and so it was on all of our minds yesterday during the day. This would help a lot of the staff. Will have to get the sets and make for next year.

  8. So very lovely. My daughter recently became a school board member and it will be great for her to have some of these on hand. What blue cardstock did you use as a matte, and where do you get the colored envelopes?

  9. Bless you, Jennifer.

    I just loved the pencil cards. I’m getting a list of the teachers’ birthdays at our church’s school so I can see them cards. Thank you for the inspiration.

    I have a question. Was there a reason that you didn’t stamp all the sentiments on the pencil at once? Just curious.

    Numbers 6:24-26

  10. Jennifer, I not only loved the cards, but the fact that you are so genuine. Thank you for sharing with us today, you made me feel like I can make a difference. You’ve made a difference just by doing the video and I appreciate you.

  11. I’ve been an intervention specialist for over 20 years. The last few days I have had such a heavy heart. Struggling to find words for dealing with this tragedy for my kids at school and for my own three teenagers at home. Thank you for honoring teachers in this way. You make the world a better place. I love your tips and tricks! Wanted to share that I use this ruler to find center points all the time…

  12. Just want to let you know how amazing a crafter you are. I have been making cards for many many years now, and each time I watch your videos I learn something new and I can’t wait to try it. I love your layering technique and use it almost all the time now. Your videos are excellent and the information is presented in a way that’s easy to understand even in a complicated card. Thank you so much for your Creativity and your willingness to share it. I just watched your video on card making for depression and I can totally relate. If I find I am unable to sleep at night. I find myself down in the craft room creating a beautiful card. My family and friends all expect a handmade card for every occasion now and I love doing it. So, thank you Jennifer. I look forward to every video you post.Keep Heart ❤️❤️

  13. Hi Jennifer, thank you for the encouragement! I am already making Christmas cards for the nursing home my mom used to live in and I am amazed at the detail and time you put into each of those cards! I am sure they will be appreciated.
    Another way to find the center is to use the ruler or a sheet of paper with a straight edge and draw an X. The outside pencils give you the perfect starting point and you could use the T-ruler to draw a vertical line from that point if you wanted to.
    I usually eyeball things. 😉 Thank you for sharing! You are very much appreciated. Love, Susi

  14. You are so thoughtful and I am sure that the school staff members will appreciate these terrific cards.

  15. Your kindness and generosity is just amazing. I am sure these beautiful cards will put a smile on the recipients faces. I can’t even image how fearful teachers and students must be every day.

  16. Thank You Jennifer. I am a retired teacher and school counselor. The work you do is so special and so appreciated. I am sure each person that receives one of these thoughtful messages is just happy to be remembered. Thank You for all you do and for your loving spirit. You always remind me how much good there is in the world.
    Diana
