  1. Often times, simple is just fun, less fussy and less time spent thinking, so we can just enjoy playing with our products.
    Those coordinating colors of ink and cardstock, definitely give some simple ideas that can pop a card together quickly.
    thank you for reminding us of basics, sometimes we just lose sight and make things more difficult.
    Great video

  3. You are such an inspiration to me. My cardmaking is much better because of you. Thank you for the difference you make!!

  4. Your video is chock-full of great basics and excellent reminders. I really like the color cohesiveness of this new line but I will have to wait to purchase it as I have not even got all of the Pawsitively sets yet. Great set of colors. I’m likely to purchase the papers!

  5. While I think this is a great video for new crafters, I found to be a great reminder video, as well. Thank you. This new collection from Simon is great. I struggle with color and having colors I know will work together for rainbows will be really helpful. The 80 lb. wgt. is also great for making formed/3D flowers.

  6. Hi Jennifer. I was unable to find the Hero Arts circle confetti die you used in your GK Shimmering Seasons collab set video. Can you direct me to that product or a similar product that you recommend to use for making my own circular embellishments?

  7. Good Morning Jennifer-I always love watching your videos and learning new techniques. Even though I’m a “seasoned” card maker, I can always learn something new. You referenced a couple of video links in this video (including one about pop-up foam tape vs card stock) but I couldn’t find the link either here or in the video. Did I miss them? If not, would you be able to add them to the post? Thank you so much for all you do.
