  1. Thank you for sharing, a great use for all those scraps. the butterfly die cuts are lovely and I liked how you lauered them, your cards are always lovey

  2. When I am interested in cards that are different or interesting, your ideas are definitely a treasure trove. Even spurring the imagination to other directions. The possibilities with these backgrounds are practically endless. Even just layering a couple lovely pre-made die-cuts and framing could churn out some really beautiful cards. Especially when mass-producing. This would be great around the holidays with winter colors or reds and greens and cute or pretty holiday images. Oh, the mind boggles.
    Your creativity is inspiring. Thank you for sharing, and taking the time. (The longer ones are even better…coffee time for me.) =)

  3. Wow you have a great mind to come up with so many ideas. We enjoy all your videos and Thank you for sharing them with us. God Bless you and your family. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™

  5. You are wonderful. These cards are so beautiful, I think I'm buying a shredder!!! You are a true inspiration and thank you so much for sharing your projects and ideas with us. God Bless xo

  6. love love your videos, they are easy and fun ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—. keep up with this ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

  7. About ten years ago I was doing a scrapbook page and used my quarter inch shredder to make strips to weave them like a basket using prints and solid , made 12×12. It turned out so cool, I made several more. When Shredders changed for better security reasons, my old shredder stayed for the crafts. Love these card Jennifer you never cease to amaze. TFS you are tremendously precious to us card enthusiasts.

  8. I totally enjoyed this video. Such a great idea Carol came up with using a paper shredder. My friend used to make fun of me for saving my scraps (especially strips!) until one year I did this very thing using my glitter paper cut into narrow strips. I made all of my Christmas cards that year using my multi coloured glitter strips as my backgrounds. The shredder is def. the way to go. The cards you made from these Jennifer are more than a little inspiring. They are absolutely stunning!

  9. You are truly amazing Jennifer. Where you come up with so "many" fantastic ideas..well you are unbelievable! We are blessed to have you teach us.

  10. WOW! Gorgeous cards. Love them all but my favorite is the one with the shimmer on the rainbow background. tfs

  11. You are AWESOME Jennifer ….I wish I had your talent for coming up with designs, and just simple but beautiful cards. My only question is why can't I click on your links to products used and have them come up?? I used to be able to, but not any longer…any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Keep up the GREAT work !! Love ALL your videos and techniques.

  12. Love all your videos and your cards. You are an inspiration!!
    I do have 2 questions for you
    On the one card that you stamped the happy birthday on the strips with versamark did you use clear embossing powder and heat set them or just let the versamark ink dry for the tone on tone look.
    And I have noticed you have changed craft knives. What band is the one you are using and why do you like it?
    Thank you again

  13. Yea hooray!!! Thanks for sharing the idea of using the paper shredder to make the colored strips. (Even I can do this….) I always enjoy your videos. I keep a notebook handy and jot notes (and take pictures w/ my cell to go with the notes). The bright colors are extremely attractive and eye-catching. Thanks for being such a talented and interesting teacher!!!

  14. This technique is brilliant. I produce so many scraps of all shapes and sizes there's so much potential to this. Thank you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  15. We all love your longer videos with numerous examples like this one which, by the way is outstanding. The strips in a rainbow pattern are so effective. What a great way to use up our scraps. It's almost worth buying an inexpensive shredder for this. Great technique, thank you again. You are truly a blessing showing these spiritual sentiments.

  16. I have wondered for a good while, how you could salvage scrapes of card stock. Not necessarily sheets that have been cut on, but other forms of scraps of paper. By golly, you have hit the nail on the head with this video. Loved the cards and most definitely enjoyed the videos. You are a breath of fresh air for us!

  17. Gorgeous rainbow backgrounds ideal for the unicorn craze I can not wait to make these tfs. Laura x

  18. Jennifer, thanks so much for this video. I've been playing a bit with weaving scraps but your video gives me so many more possibilities!

  19. I purchased the Aurora AS810SD shredder but my papers have "fuzzies" on the side. Is it the paper I am using or is this normal? Love your videos. Thanks.

  20. A your work is so beautiful, creative and you make it look so easy!. Your explanations are perfect and to the point. I love that

  21. How good to use the scraps to make beautiful cards. Loved all the examples. You make great longer videos and I would listen every time you do. Thanks.

  22. I love it when you get carried away creating wonderful cards to share with us. Your inspiration is contagious.
    Using up scraps is such a winner…tfs.

  23. Oh my goodness Jennifer this video is totally awesome ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
    I absolutely love this idea. I have a shredder and I would never have thought of that….!!!!!!!……LOL
    Well done to Carol Duncan you are such a clever girl too.
    JUST LOVE YOUR VIDEOS ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน
    Thx U Rhonda Laine Sydney Australia xoxoxox

  24. jSo many great ideas. I didn't mind at all that you got carried away. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas (and Carol's too!)

  25. Jennifer,ย  First let me say as always, you amaze me. Secondly, how did you dicut the 3 butterflies on the card that says "With Love & Prayers".ย  You don't explain how you did that part and I would love to know.

  26. All these rainbow ideas make me so happy! That paper shredder idea is pure genius and I always love the idea of using up more scraps. <3

  27. Oh my goodness. I found myself saving this video to watch when I could just sit back, relax, and take it all in! I actually have a "Jennifer McGuire Ink" file not only in my email, but also for my YouTube videos. So I save my favorites there. And this one is at the top of the list! So, so much to see and learn. You are truly a genius when it comes to mixing it up. I am constantly impressed with all the ideas you come up with. I've only made 3 or 4 YT videos, just for my own practice. One of them is my take (humorous, I might add) on making the cards you made using the Embossed Impressions Corbel Tree Collage die cut. Some techniques I try seem to come easier than others. But I can see that all of these cards are "makable" for me! lol. Thanks, Jennifer, for showing us how to make beautiful cards. And I'm so very glad this one was a nice long video. I guarantee I'll watch it over and over ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Beautiful backgrounds and oh so beautiful cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don't mind the long videos, could sit and see your videos all day long! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs from Sweden!

  29. You are so talented and brilliant to think of all of these wonderful techniques. Thanks so much for sharing them – I look forward to using these techniques with my tones and tones of scraps!

  30. Loved your video!!!!ย  Thank you!!ย  Where can I find the dies and stamps that say things like praying for you…or His love never fails?

  31. hey … i am a huge fan of urs and i love ur innovative and quirky ways of creating cards , i always had the problem of using scraps and this video is just perfect to learn efficient use of left over bits and pieces .. love from India ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜โค

  32. I tried this technique over the weekend with the scraps I trimmed from cardstock. So much fun and so easy!

  33. Forget waiting for scraps. All these were good enough to just create scraps or no scraps. And the shredder suggestion was genius! ๐Ÿ˜€

  34. Very nice demonstrations but I have a Cutterbug and need more information about using dies and stencils, stamps and things like you are doing without it but with it too.

    Great work.

  35. I always admire your great ability to mix colours. The result is always wonderful. Congratulations and thank you for feeding my dreams and helping me to develop my creativity.

  36. Hi Jennifer. Thank you for this i can see a hour or so with my grand daughter coming up.Was just thinking:- If you put glue on various size card and glue the hanging over strips and leaving a gap for cutting off. I can see these little pieces being great for sentiment matting and layering or as a place to stamp a sentiment on. Thank you for a fun card idea and I now have a Happy Place but it still needs painting i'm wondering with all the tester pots it would be a great focal wall to have diagonal strips on it. Luvs and hugs xxx Wendy

  37. Here I have been cutting them with my trimmer, I hadn't thought of this yet. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like to think I would have at some point, lol

  38. I love using strips of scraps down to the last bit. I can never bear to throw away pretty papers. Instead of using a tape runner to make a sticky background for the scraps, I use the sticky side of full sheet Avery labels. It works like a charm.

  39. I'm definately doing this with my scraps. These backgrounds are great and your cards are lovely. I really like the butterfly with vellum.

  40. Hai Jennifer .
    Thanks for all the wonderful ideas and insparations. Do you have some ideas for weddings cards.
    Keep doing the great job๐Ÿ‘
