I love these stitched essentials…just so difficult to chose one or two!!! So excited though for the mini slim lines and the mini slim line envelope die is an absolute must.

Again an awesome release. I love both of the Slimline Envelope die sets, so great to make your own matching envelopes. But on top of my wish list is the stunning and so unbelievable versatile Mini Slimline Essentials Bundle die set!
And great that there are now also Jewel Mix refills availeble.
I love that you always showing the new release in a video so great to see it “live” then only from a shop page, thank you so much for that.

Already placed my order at 8:00 eastern. Loving all the new mini slimline dies. Can’t wait to try the envelope maker. Planning on adding a few essentials next order. I find myself using essentials often. Bought some jewels to try. Great idea to have them in individual packs.

I am a true believer in all things Pinkfresh! I find I have become more creative using your products. Thank you for your creative and beautiful products.

Deb Bryant
98. May 24, 2021

I love the Essentials because they are great products to use everyday but are anything but basic. The mini slimline is a nice size for a card, especially for me who has a hard time writing messages inside cards, less space, less writing. I think the envelope die is a great idea, an envelope is the appetizer to the main course, the card. Love all your great ideas!

97. May 24, 2021

Lots of pretty items. I especially liked the slimline envelope dies and the slimline bundle. I know this is older but am very happy about the hot foil plates. Lovely items. Thank you.

Patricia Wilson
