I am relatively new to Pink Fresh studios. Thank you Jennifer McGuire for introducing me. PF quickly became one of my favorite companies. Love your product. My husband bought the whole ink pad collection for Mother’s Day. Great gift and great guy! I am really loving the mini slimline cards. Can’t wait to get my hands on the new dies.

Bev Chapman
65. May 24, 2021

I absolutely love the mini slimline envelope die set. I would love to have it to make colorful envelopes for my mini slimline cards because all I have found for that size is boring white envelopes (and it was hard to find even those without security lining). I also really love the blanket stitched circles and ovals because I haven’t seen anything else like them from any other source. Gorgeous release! I am going to check out the hop to see what the team has done!

Kathy Berger
64. May 24, 2021

Great release with some wonderful dies. I would choose the slimline envelop die…

63. May 24, 2021

Love this release. Love all the jewels for shaker cards. I might have to invest in the slimline dies and envelopes. I always love your die cuts!

Both sets of stitched scallops AND the mini slimline bundle just added to my shopping list.

60. May 24, 2021

Pinkfresh always offers so many terrific, innovative items! I like this release a lot because it offers us a chance to get more basics that are indispensable items stocked into our crafting arsenals! It’s also super smart to offer the bling in individual packets!

Thanks for providing a hop to give us a multitude of ideas!

I am really excited about the mini slimeline envelope. I always love decorating envelopes, so its a nice touch. But I find it hard to get this size. With the die I will always be able to have an envelope on hand! The essentials mini slimeline package die is perfect! Everything you need in one purchase! I also really hope the folk edge die will come out in square and rectangle.
