  1. I knew some of these ideas, but forgot about them. Thanks for the refresher! I especially like inking the folder. Makes it pop.

  2. Thanks for sharing all of your tips! I have never tried double embossing or embossing on speciality paper. Can’t wait to try these techniques!

  3. Hi from Australia. I have just ordered my machine and some embossing folders as I have been wanting to do embossed cards for quite a while. I stumbled across your videos a few nights ago and have watched a few of your them and always find them very informative and easy to follow and understand. Thank you for this and the other tutorials showing the many ways you can use the embossing folders. I will certainly be trying some of these when I get my machine.
    I am so enjoying watching your tutorials Jackie, it makes it less daunting to try things.
    Looking forward to watching many more of your videos. Gai

    • I’m so glad that the videos are helpful to you and I KNOW you’ll have so much fun creating cards to share with others! Have a stamp happy day!
