Comment: I love your little vintage pocket insert! This was a really fun little project and love the way she created the inside pockets. I really like the vellum you used with the gold dots and reindeer clip - so pretty. And I love this Graphic 45 Christmas paper too. And thank you for the owls and butterflies - my favorites! So thoughtful of you and such a fun swap!
Comment: Oh Jessica! Holy cow! This is simply fantastic...and I'm still going through the pockets and finding bits of gorgeousness! Thank you so much for sending something so amazing...for taking the time to create something wonderful for me!
Comment: Thankyou Jessica. I made 16 of the triple pockets for other swaps. I actually changed it up a bit on the others I made instead of the pocket on the back, I put it on the inside. The construction of yours was done quite well. I had trouble gluing, mine but it's probably because I over stuffed the pockets. I liked how you trimmed the edges. I so struggle with keeping things flat, I think you mastered it. Loved the colors too.
Comment: What love.y scraps you have, my dear! My gosh! Love your take on the match book...the Brad makes a great closure, and filled with 4 adorable tags!! You have to tell me how you made the little pocket inside. A bookmark to match the tags..it will be used! The little paper flip book is awesome! Love all the cute and quirky papers inside! And the larger paper scrap flip book... a foreign page, several different kraft pages, a dictionary page, and more. So cool! The postcard is beautiful... I don't want to use it! Lastly, that ingenious tea bag shaker... Absolutely Brilliant, the whole envie!! Thank you so much for taking the time to make your scraps special to me too. 💛💖💚🧡🤍🖤💙❤💜🤎 So Many extra hearts! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Comment: Hi Jessica! Thank you so much for these sweet Halloween-themed notepads! They are so well made and I LOVE the cute die-cuts and colorful brads. I LOVE lime green for Halloween! So nice to swap together again ;+)
Comment: Hi Jessica and thanks so much for this awesome 1 page wonder with 8 pockets. This was such a fun swap, despite the fact that for some reason the first one I made only had 7 pockets??? So I got to try it again! This fall paper you used is so pretty, and all the goodies you tucked inside coordinate perfectly with the paper. I'm tickled to add all of these to my fall stash for future swaps. Thanks again for such a fun swap!
Comment: As always, this card is super cute. You are so creative with your element choices... love the big button
! I, too, love fall and can’t get enough. Thank you for the cute swap and for continuing to join in with our little collage art pieces❣️🍁🍂
Comment: Thank you for the fun swap!! I love the sugar skull, thank you for putting forth the effort to make something specifically for me, you did great!!! Thank you so much, such fun little pockets!!
Comment: Thank you so much for this really wonderful, autumn one-sheet wonder book! I absolutely love it - autumn is my favourite time of year too. : ) The book itself is beautifully crafted. Again, thank you. xoxo
Comment: Hi Jessica . . . these coordinating cards are SO pretty. Did you have the same stencil as the YouTube tutor? Gorgeous, metallic paint. Love the images you chose, too . . . I'm crazy for anything botanical. These are finished SO nicely, including the lovely writing paper/washi on the back of the cards. Thanks, too, for the extra painted/stenciled card you sent--I'll definitely put that to good use! Thanks for sending such special pieces to fulfill this swap ;+)
Comment: Hi Jessica . . . many thanks for the beautiful envies you sent to fulfill this swap! I thought it was so simple and loved being able to make them curved. You used such pretty papers. Love them!
Comment: Thanks so much for these four beautiful pencil clips and all your well wishes and prayers. We really need them right now, as the virus is running rampant through our area! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: This is beautiful!! The colors you chose are perfect. I love the roses on last pocket, so pretty! And journaling cards you made are awesome. I love everything about this swap!! Thank you so much for such a great swap. ❤️
Comment: Love all the bird themed items you made! The pocket with TH crazy birds is my favorite! But anything with Tim’s crazy birds will always put a smile on my face. Thanks for such a great swap! ❤️
Comment: Jessica, first thank you for your many kind words in your note. You and I have swapped many times and I always enjoy opening your envelopes. Next, the card you created for me is just too adorable and so clever. I love it❣️What a creative way to use the buttons! Finally, thank you for the goodies…I’m running low on the vintage bulb clips…they are my favs! And one more thing…lol…the notecards you send are always so unique and pretty. You sure know how to make mail special!🥰
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Journal cards! Love them all! especially the travel theme ones <3 because I was just thinking about a road trip, but the heat and high gas prices is making me think twice. May be in September ... I'll make good use of these cards and the extra ones you made :D thank you!
Comment: Oh my…..what an absolutely beautiful mini book you created! The color is gorgeous and I love how you did every envelope and the surprises inside! Love the little frame and postage stamps. Thank you so very much!
Comment: It arrived today! Thank you for re-sending to me. I feel awful that you needed to do that but the postal system is a bit slow and sometimes does lose our precious mailings :( The first has never arrived. I love what you put together.The paper bow is so cute! I like the soft color choices you used too. Nicely done and I thank you again for resending to me.
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I saw a video recently on how to make those bows with the WRMK envelope punch board. They are a bit addictive once you get going!!
Comment: It was nice to read how you work in the same field as me! I've not tried caramel apple tea before! The stickers are so beautiful. Such lovely items you sent in the nesting envelopes. I wish I could give you more than 1 heart!
Comment: Hi Jessica and thank you for the altered playing - number 2 in the series. This turned out just amazing! Your background has that perfect rough and uneven texture that she was looking for and I love your colors. And love the domino as the focal point! I did not have any luck with the modge podge and the cheesecloth, but I don't think it really needed that extra touch. This is a fun series so will look for more APC's from you in the future!
Comment: Hi Jessica and thanks so much for the really cute pockets. Wasn't this one fun? So easy but the finished product is so cute. I love these papers you used, especially the pink with the gold butterflies and the pink with the gold dots. Thanks for a fun swap!
Comment: Thanks for these very cute flowers! I love the little envie you made to put them in! Thanks for the extras and nice note too! You should come and visit Alaska again! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Jessica, this card is so ADORABLE!!! I absolutely love it. You are so talented! Thank you so much for a wonderful swap. I'm glad you are enjoying your new Sizzix - I love mine.It makes crafting so much more fun. :-)
Comment: Hi Jessica! I can't believe this is your first attempt at creating a junk journal. It's really good! I love the nature images, the embossed pieces, the pockets with all those lovely goodies, and the die cuts you used throughout. I love it all. Hope we're partnered again very soon!
Comment: Hi Jessica! Your teeny flipbook is adorable! From the cute paper you used to all the fun goodies you managed to pack into such a small package - I love it all and will have fun adding to future projects to embellish them with cuteness! Thanks for a fun swap, and I love that you and your Mom are crafting together!
Comment: I love this and all the wonderful goodies that are tucked in ... Thanks for joining my swap! The embellishments are wonderful and you made it personalized with the "D" ❤️ I also like that you made some fun handmade embellishments for me!
Comment: Jessica, the tag style flipbook is so pretty. I love the paper you used and the way you decorated it. I like everything you put in the flipbook. That black and white photo of the little kid on the tricycle is so adorable. You went above and beyond. Thank you so much.
Comment: Hi Jessica and thank you so much for the awesome jewelers envelope. I had never done this type envelope either but really liked the size and configuration of it. And if you are new to collage, I sure can't tell - it looks amazing! I love the vintage handwritten paper you used as well as the nature themed embellishments. And so many fun goodies in side - yippee! I love it all! Hope to swap with you again in future!!
Comment: I was in awe the moment I opened this one. Absolutely nailed this chunky piece and am just so impressed with all the extra details and time that went into this one. I can’t wait to put it to good use. Thank you so much ☺️
Response: I am so glad you like it! It was definitely one that took some extra effort, but I really enjoyed making it!
Comment: Thank you Jessica for the paper that you sent to me for this swap. Decided to create is swap-bot Journal and I will be using all of your papers in that journal. I'll also be using other ephemera and pieces that I get from other swaps in this journal as well. I also want to thank you for the very nice little note that you wrote, too. Do you find that you exchange different swaps with the same people? Does that make sense? I'm just wondering if I'll get another swap with you one day and even with some of the other people I've swapped with. The more contact we have with each other the better we will be able to get to know one another. Anyway Jessica thank you so much they're participating in this swap. Best regards, Alma
Response: I do find I am often in swaps with the same people. Especially if you join groups.
Comment: Jessica, thank you for the absolutely lovely flipbook! I absolutely love the papers/ decorations you used and the goodies you included are just my style - I can't wait to use them. Thanks for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Wow!!! I love both of these pocket inserts, Jessica! I love how you stamped on the book page one - wish I had thought of that!! And great skull and bones inserts! And the other pocket insert with the little TimHoltz note pad and the stamp holder with the gear! So clever!! Thank you so much!!!
Response: You're welcome! I had so much fun making them!
Comment: As always, Jessica, you do such a great job in creating your swaps. This Easter pocket is just adorable. I love the papers, goodies, the paper clip, and the belly band which adds such a cute and easy element. Thank you so much❣️
Comment: Hi Jessica! Thanks so much for the cute envies! I love the little captions you put on them especially--they add so much dimension to the stamped and stenciled backgrounds. Thanks for being a great swap partner! <3
Comment: Hi Jessica,
I love everything you kindly sent me. Your folder is amazing and I have it on my desk at work. Speaking of work, I hope you get your promotion!!! That would be wonderful!!!
I would love to stay in touch. The group you are involved with sounds great. I would enjoy hearing more about it. Many blessings for children - God Bless YOU!
Thank you again!!!! All your items will be put to use!!!
Response: I'm so glad you loved it! If you would like to stay in touch we can give the pen pal thing a shot. I don't currently have any.
Comment: Oh wow! You don't realize what a perfect image you found! So in one of the houses I emptied, I found a small sample bottle of perfume - Bulgarian Rose! I love it! I'm not a fan of perfume, so this is the only one I have, and it is so pure, it smells so cleanly of fresh roses, it's really intoxicating 🌹. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute Trolls valentine! The original trolls came out when I was about 9. I bought 1-2 everyday. Back then they were 25-50 cents each. I had probably 200 at one time. I read recently that those originals are now worth up to $1000 each. Oh, how I wish I still had them. LOL! Have a wonderful day!
Response: Oh wow! That is quite a collection! I'm glad you liked the card!
Comment: Very adorable mail. I have to admit because of it's size it did almost get lost in the mail. Super cute and love it. 💗
Response: Yes I have learned my lesson from that swap, and will not send that small again. Someone had commented on the swap that 3x5 was the smallest you could send through USPS, so that is what I made them, but they charged extra because they said it was too small. I will not do that again! I am glad you liked it.
Comment: Hi Jessica, I love the book page collage tags you made! Thank you so much♥️They are really fun with the botanical theme you used. I just love the flowers, makes me feel a little warmer in this cold Wisconsin winter! I haven't made mine yet, but yours gave me some inspiration. I also really like the winter scene card you made with the 2 cardinals. Nice! Thanks also for the extra goodies.
Response: Thank you! I had fun making the tags! I can't take credit for the card, I bought that on Etsy. I'm glad you liked it all
Comment: I LOVE these cute little mini loaded bags! Thank you for all the goodies included - especially the teeny tiny paper clip with the heart. Where oh where did you find it? I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day.
Comment: What a fun swap! I loved how you did the heart cutouts I ADORE the tiny paperclip with a heart. Wherever did you find it? Thanks for the extras including the colorful flower pages! Enjoy your Valentine's Day. Don't forget some chocolate!.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I got those little paper clips on Amazon, they are the cutest little things! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08KZHNNNJ?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title
Comment: Hi Jessica and thank you for the two library cards with vellum pockets. I love both of them! Love the butterflies and the clever little cards you made for listing my favorite books and books I want to read. And your vintage book pages are awesome - both with "butterfly"! Thanks so much for a great swap.
Comment: Thank you for the granny square you sent. I liked the colors you used. This swap took forever to arrive. From what tracking showed it took 27 days to go from Richmond, VA to Kansas City, KS. But I did finally receive it.
Comment: I love the corner huggers you sent! The cacti made me smile, I live where the sahuaro grow! And I love butterflies! The envelope was gorgeous as well, such a wonderful idea!! Thanks so much ❤️

Comment: Yes! I was born on Elvis’ 21st birthday. It was a big day in my hometown. There were 6 babies born on the 8th, in a very small town. We all grew up together, went to school together, and 4 of us went together to get our driver license. Good times!

Comment: Hi Jessica ~ thanks for the pretty red barn/snow scene Christmas card. I grew up in the country and love this type of card. We had a white Christmas & it was really cold. Thanks too for the beautiful flower die cuts, love them. It’s a new year now & I hope it is a great one for you and your family. take care ~ Judy
Comment: Hi! I saw that your card was postmarked on December 3 but I just received it today (12/21)! My goodness, I'm sorry about that. USPS has really been inundated, especially nowadays. Anyway! I opened your card so I could peek in and see what swap it was for and who it was from, but I will officially be opening it on Christmas day! Thank you so much for the wonderful happy mail and I'm looking forward to reading your card. ;v; Merry Christmas!
Comment: I love 💕 my mini album...The colors are so wonderful and I love all the fun goodies. I love all the creative embellishments and tags ...it is fun to look through the pockets. Thanks for joining the swap!
Comment: Thank you! I live in the high desert so we get hot and cold. We do get a small snow most years but last year we got 2 big snows; 1 on Thanksgiving and 1 the day after Christmas. It was a lot of fun but happy we only get that once in awhile!
Comment: thank you for the christmas pocket letter. it reached me yesterday. I was only missing the goodies there where not in 8 pockets goodies like it should be. Love the papers you used and the receipts! I don't have any Starbucks near by here...not sure if it works here have a wonderful christmas time. Love Jill
Response: I am very sorry if I misunderstood the instructions. I did what I understood to be the swap. If you will message me what was missing, I will gladly send again! I definitely don't want you to be shorted anything as that was not my intention!
Comment: Oh my, oh my! Where do I begin? What you created for me is just stunning. I love each and every embellishment and the book you made to hold everything. Your style is just gorgeous. I love it all so much. I could go on and on. Thank you for taking so much time to make this swap so extra special. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: You're welcome! It was so much fun to do!! I am glad you love it!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful card and verses. I keep intending to update my profile...tomorrow and tomorrow never seems to come LOL! My hubby is cancer free now. Actually he had a new PET scan yesterday which we will get results of on Tuesday. If (I'm sure it will) it shows clear he will have had 4 clear scans. That's what the doc has been pushing for. YAY! Thank you so much for asking. We always appreciate everyone's prayers. Have a blessed day!
Comment: Hello Jessica! Thank you very much for the Knitted candle you made for me. I'm love with it! So pretty! Thank you too for the cute little note pad. It will definitely be hanging on my Christmas !
Comment: Thanks for the card, inspiration, and wonderful tea. To mark the changing of the seasons from summer to fall, I make a point to drink pumpkin tea. Earl Grey, too, is one of my usual favorites. I really liked the "tea packet" papercraft, well done. Thanks for swapping and bringing a smile to my day! Best, Rick.
Comment: Wish I could rate higher then a 5. AND give 2 hearts. The gift tags are just beautiful. Thank you for all the hard work. Thank you too, for the little extras. What a nice surprise.
Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Comment: Thank you Jessica for the strawberry pincushion - very cute. It feels like it's filled with rice? Thank you too to your mother for the thumb cushion - I haven't seen one before; I will try in tonight when I am sewing.
