  1. Really love this stripe look! I didn’t think I needed a simple stripe die…..but to make life easy, this may have to go into my shopping bag!

  2. Loved the video. You inspired me with the background. I’ve been wanting a die like that but all the ones I’ve seen by others just didn’t cut it. This is perfect. I will be enjoying that die for years to come. And the Card kit is wonderful too. Thank you for helping me spend money. You’re the best Jennifer.

  3. How do I get these products. 20 minutes after I get your email ( 3-4 minutes after I watch your video to know if I want these products) they are all sold out. It is very frustrating. I love your videos but I’m tired of trying to get the products you recommend. The suppliers should stock more products based on the great interest and ordering that follow your videos!

  4. Another fun technique to try. Thanks, too for the tip about using the die to help line up a curved sentiment!

  5. When weaving with fabric strips in some weaving techniques, the strips must be kept and used in order. This is done by leaving one side uncut. For paper in the trimer, it would be easy to put tape on one side. Cut to the tape for each strip. Or draw a line to indicate where to stop cutting. I’ve done this with a couple hundred strips for fabric. Paper should be much easier.
