Thank you so so much for the 1 sheet winder directions
I’m making 40 cards for residents who are in lockdown
This will make it so much easier for me
Hi, Mary! You are amazing to make so many cards for folks who need them-what a great idea! I hope the OSW helps you to crank them out! Thank you for leaving me a comment.😃
Hi Robin! I stumbled across your channel thanks to You Tube and their suggestions. I am addicted to your videos! You are AWESOME at teaching! I’ve been stamping since 2004, and am now just a hobby demo. I just love, love all of your DSP cards & tutorials. Thank you for all the wonderful PDF’s!!! ~Tanya Alness / Maple Valley Washington (state)
Tanya, wow! I needed to hear your lovely comment this morning, thank you!😊 I love that you found me from Washington and that we share this satisfying hobby.
Thank you for the all the PDF’s. I came across your video for the one sheet wonder using 2 6″ x 6″ DSP. I have been checking out your other videos. Your instructions are very easy to follow.
Hi Trina! You are welcome! I appreciate the feedback to – it helps me plan more content! 😃
I just found you on YouTube which lead me here to your blog! Awesome cards and tutorials you share! Thank you!
Hi Liz! Thank you for finding me! I’m thrilled you found some ideas to use!
Hello, I found you through YouTube and I am so hooked on your videos. You give wonderfully clear directions and I love how you begin with a simple card and then lead us into more stepped up versions. I’ve made several and have enjoyed each one. Your pdf sheets help so much and your generous spirit is awesome. Keep it up your, followers really appreciate your work.
Hi Lynn! Your comment is absolutely lovely.😊 Thank you for sharing your appreciation and helpful feedback. Let me know how I can help you further in your cardmaking journey. 😁
Hi Robin, Thank you Thankyou Thank you !! I’ve been card making for over 20 years and its so refreshing to see so many new ideas. YouTube and you are a match made in Heaven. I’ve been reading all your comments and the consensus is in, you’ve been blessed with a talent for teaching and for being so generous. It’s all very much appreciated.!
Linda, your sweet message means the world to me! Thank YOU for taking the time to appreciate my content and efforts. You and I have been making cards for about the same amount of time – 20+ years! I always thought I’d get bored with it and the desire to make cards would fade (like other crafting trends I’ve done – paper quilling, tshirt painting, or candle-making) but it hasn’t at all. I still love it and you must too!
I found your you tube card making yesterday 9-20-21. Have been binge watching ever since. Your ideas are amazing. I was starting and rewinding to get measurements etc until I listened to you say there was a free download. THANK YOU! I like your ideas of OSW and making several cards. Loving this and I subscribed so will be keeping up. Thanks again.
Hi Jeanne! Welcome I am so glad you are here and have found me in the vast ocean of YouTube! I appreciate you telling me about how my efforts have helped you in your cardmaking! I look forward to seeing more from you! Happy stamping.😃
Thank you so much for your informative Youtube channel and for the instructions. New to card making so am enjoying your cards.
Hello, Christine! Welcome! I’m so glad you left me a comment. How exciting to just be starting with card making – this is a very productive and satisfying way to be creative and helpful to others. Please let me know how I can help you in your cardmaking journey. 😃
I just found you on YouTube! I am new to card making. I have been watching your videos and referring to the PDFs. Thank you for sharing your artistic talents! You are so helpful and just full of ideas! So fun!
Hi Janice! I somehow missed your lovely comment from last week! Thank you! It makes me happy to know that you are finding inspiration and opportunities to learn from my resources – yay! Please reach out to me with anything you need in your stamping journey.
Hello Robin, I found your You Tube channel a few days ago. I am fairly new to cardmaking and papercraft. I don’t have much time for it unfortunately so I haven’t improved much over time. You have such amazing ideas and explain everything so well, I just want to get on and create! A mess probably! But I will have enjoyed myself!
I have now subscribed to you channel and look forward to my first email from you..
Thank you so much again.
Hello Kath! I appreciate your words greatly! Welcome to my world and also to stamping. I’m super glad you are here. There is a small learning curve with the art of stamping but all you need is practice. (Part of the fun is the mess) Truly. I would love nothing more than to help you get started on this journey so tell me what you need!
Thank you for the pdf, these are so great, just found you on YouTube a few weeks ago watching you videos and downloading any pdf I think I can do, you truly are an artist.
Hi there, Martha! I am so glad you found me and are able to be creative with my resources. Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me about it – I appreciate it! Happy stamping to YOU!
I discovered you on utube. I’m new to stamping and your ideas are awesome. Thank you so much for sharing.
Hello, Sue! Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! You are embarking on a really fun hobby! Please let me know if I can help you in any way, ok? Do you have copies of the Stampin’ Up! catalogs?
Thank you for being so generous and sharing your creativity. I have learned a few things from your videos and really appreciate the templates.
Virginia!!!! I’m very glad you have found good content, and welcome!

What an amazing collection!! Thanks for sharing!! Found you on YouTube!
Hi Julie! I’m so glad you found me – welcome! Let me know how I can help you further. I appreciate your comment greatly.
I watched your Mirror Fold Card Video. It was so easy to follow so I gave it it a try. talk about impressing some of my friends was an understatement. I have only been card making for a couple of years and I am learning a lot of new technics. The only cards I have issues with are the of IE: 1/8s 7/8s in inches are I am in UK we are mostly in CMs. However I am trying to make the most of it. Thanks for the inspiration to try new ideas.
Hi there! I appreciate your comments, thank you! I’m very glad you like the mirror card tutorial and tried it immediately! I’m glad you were able to get it to work despite the measurements translating to eighths.
I pray the Lord bless you greatly! You have such a sharing heart! Your patience and teaching expertise shines through every video! I have benefitted so much by your generosity! Please keep teaching us!
Thank you, Debbie, for your precious words of encouragement to me. I appreciate you telling me how what I do benefits you, because sometimes I wonder at the difference I am making and why. Happy stamping, friend!
Robin thank you so much for your Free Resource Library. The cards are all so beautiful and interesting, I can’t wait to start on them. I always seem to be in a rush to get cards made, I never seem to have the time to play with new designs. I really want to get a stash of all kinds of cards made so that I can just pick one off the shelf to send. I recently made a stash of your quadrilateral cards, they just need sentiments and embellishments. I made them with the Pansy paper, unfortunately the cards I’ve needed lately are masculine!
I also appreciate your you tube tutorials so much Robin, I’m always waiting for the next one.
Take care and stay safe.

Hello Robin.. I have just found your videos on YouTube and they are awesome. I would love to start making cards, but not sure where to start. Any advise would be most welcome.
I live in New Zealand.. am in my retirement age and looking for something I love doing to fill in my spare time. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing your talent and your ideas. I find them to be very doable and versatile!!
All my best,

What a wonderful surprise!! I was just browsing today and found your site and blog! Your ‘Playdate #22’ featuring the Soft Pastels was EXACTLY the inspiration that I was looking for! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations AND your talent!! SO SO glad I found you too!!
Pat, thank you for your positive feedback on my website as well as on YouTube. You are sweet! Which pastel techniques have you tried and which was your favorite?
Recently “discovered” you on U Tube with the squash fold card technique. Enjoy watching your videos. I have downloaded some tutorials from your blog. Plenty to keep me going for quite a while. Thank you so much for sharing your tutorials with us all.
Keep on Crafting
