I love all the kits you have created to this point. My only thought would be to have one for masculine cards or another for sympathy/praying for you type cards. I'm sure whatever you come up with it will be great. jmniffer


Fabulous new kit! I would think that some kit themes people would like would be - a masculine card kit, a Christmas card kit, and a Thank You note (smaller than regular cards) kit. You do such beautiful work!


I'm a relatively new reader as I found you during the first SU blog tour so I am just learning about your on the go kits. I'd love to see a Christmas card on the go kit or a kids birthday card kit. I also wanted to say that I love coming by your blog as I always learn something new so thank you for sharing your creativity via your blog.

I am from Canada, so certainly understand if I'm not eligible for the blog candy! How about a set of sympathy/get well cards? People often need these on short notice, and I think a kit to inspire stockpiling these would be appreciated!
Your cards are beautiful, keep up the great work! I'll visit your blog for future inspiration!

I am a relatively new reader to your blog. I found you on the last blog tour. I would like to see a kit for masculine birthday cards which would include nautical themes and/or building themes. My husband is a boat Captain and so it's nautical all the way around this house. I love your blog....you have so many great ideas.

Gretchen -
I enjoy viewing your colorful and talented creations. If I were taking a class or purchasing a kit I think I'd be most interested in some sort of album to display photos and memories.
Thanks for sharing your many projects.

I recently discovered your blog and love what I see. My suggestion for a kit would be masculine birthday cards and birthday cards for children. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win some yummy blog candy.

Jan B.

I would like to see you come up with quick baby cards for On-The-Go project. Thanks for your ideas.


I have so enjoyed your site. My up line steered me to your site. I am very interested in purchasing the card kits. What a deal. I especially like the inspirational kit. It seems like everyone needs some inspiration now and then. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent. I plan to order the kit ASAP !

Darlene L

I love birds and bird houses--maybe a kit working with them somehow. I am sure there must be some die cut that you could make into a bird house. I love being a subscriber to your blog. Thanks for the blog candy offer.

Julie Temple

WOW, I love all your kits! I also just found you via the BlogHop...and I am so glad I did!! SU is my FAVE and I would LOVE something masculine like so many of the other gals!! I always have problems coming up with ideas for the guys!!
Thanks for the chance at your candy! I will link you!


laura j

I really enjoy visiting your blog. Your kits look great! It seems that I'm not the only one who would like to see some masculine cards and projects. I have such difficulty coming up with ideas for the guys in our life!!!

Jean Fitch

A lot of previous posters had terrific ideas. I'd also like to see some kits featuring various techniques or tools. Brayering for instance. Punch borders and corners that might also feature layering. As for featured stamp sets 24-7 has a lot of potential for an all occasions card set from get well to thank you , etc. Also perhaps a set and box that features each of the little mini kits on the under $10 page. These would give you quick and easy birthday and thank you kits with a lower materials cost for this tougher economy. Plus it would allow you to focus on CAS design as well as adding some bling and embellishment without breaking the bank.

And of course more or your amazing 3D projects!

Hugs and blessings and thanks for sharing the creativity - Jean

Norma E.

Love your kits. Your cards are great. I too would like to see masculine or childrens cards. Thanks for the chance to win the Blog candy

Jamie A.

Hi Gretchen, I'm always looking for more masculine cards and also scapbook page ideas! Your work is fabulous and inspirational. Thanks for sharing!


I struggle with children's cards the most, even above men's cards. Anything along that line would be awesome. You do such nice work, that I'm sure you could come up with something to "wow" us in this department as well. Thanks for the opportunity to win, and keep up the great work. You are an inspiration!


i have seen so many wonderful items on the blog tours that my head is spinning. one thing that i saw somewhere along the way was a post-it note holder. i think it would be fun to have that in a kit or any 3-d gift-type item.


I struggle with making masculine birthday cards. So my suggestion would be to offer a Card Kit along those lines. You may have already done this in the past (I'm fairly new to your blog), but using one stamp set to create a number of different cards. Thanks for all your work. It's great.

Carol P

Something masculine, maybe! Congrats on your big number of hits. You have a great blog!


I would love to see 3-d projects. Thank you for the chance to win.....Im new to your blog and love it already!

Ilene B.

I would love to see some ideas for Masculine and childrens cards! Thanks for all the inspiration and projects and for the chance at the blog candy!


I have more trouble making masculine cards and children cards for 8-10 year olds. Thanks for being so generous!

carol marbach ~ udi

barb, i love all of your projects, but i especially like when you do 3d projects.

xox ~ carol.


I like the idea of masculine cards! They are sometimes hard to do! Your kits are beautiful!

Wendy Hawkinson

I would love to see you do a brayering class or a destressing distressing class.... :)

Elizabeth Sloman

I'd love to see 3/D Giftable items (such as the clipboard you showed today) in "sets" - i.e. Desktop set for your offices secretary, or a gift set of items for a new bride, or a new mom, etc.
Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful ideas with us!
Elizabeth Sloman


The kits you have already are all beautiful. I think people are always on the lookout for ideas for masculine projects - either cards or gifts. I know I am anyway!


Masculine cards and Sympathy cards please.

Jan Jeffreys

Another vote for masculine ideas.

I love coming to your blog and looking at all the creative ideas. Thanks for sharing!!!


Barbara Kempton

I would love to see some Desk Set Kits or more 3-D type items offered. I absolutely LOVE your blog and your work! I would CASE you any day of the week!!!

Barbara Kempton

Windy Ellard

Congrats on the hits and thank you for the offer. I would love any of your creations! I love getting ideas from your site and you do a great job with your editorials. Have a great week!

Maggi Minneman

I would like to see a class-on-the-go with Wonderful Watercolors. It would be a more expensive kit, but this set seems to have so much potential. Thanks for all the ideas......! Maggi

Sherry D

I'd love to see more ideas for card organizers, boxes .. card holders etc.. I'm making so many cards and I need a place to store them!

I love all the projects you've created so far and cannot wait to see what else you are working on!

Yummy Candy! fingers crossed!


I think a set of multi-occasion cards would be great for a class-on-the-go kit. Maybe include 2 birthday, 2 thank-you, 2 get well, 2 thinking of you, etc. It would be nice if they all used the same stamp set - like Sincere Salutations or All Holidays. Thanks!

Tammy Howell

Love your samples! For the class-to-go kits I would suggest either mini scrapbooks, or scrapbook pages, or masculine cards. Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy. Love your blog and your postings on Late Night Stampers!


I really enjoy you blog and all of your creativity. You have such a varity but I would like to see more get well/thinking of you cards. Thank you.

Carolyn Sharkas

I would love to see more 3D projects, those are my favorite and the hardest for me to come up with ideas for. thanks for sharing

Hello Gretchen:
Your kits are fabulous and I would love to see an all occassion kit or a birthday kit for kids. I love your blog and come to it all of the time.

Lisa Miller

Thanks for sharing. I'd like to see a kit w/a variety of bday cards using a really versatile set. One for kids, one for female adult, one for male adult.. etc.

Donna Rinckel

I love your blog. Your cards are so colorful and interesting. I'd love to see a a kit for masculine cards. That's always my downfall. I just don't have enough ideas for the. Thanks for the chance to win! Have a wonderful week!


I love to see either a class w/ Thoughts & Prayers or a class highlighting the Hostess level 1 paper pack. I know this catalog ends in July (end of June, really I guess), but those are some weird colors in the back and I'd like to see what someone else suggests doing w/ them.

Rhonda Morgan

I absolutely LOVE what you do! I find a lot of inspiration from your designs and ideas. I am always asked for masculine cards and I have all girls, so I rarely have the "boy" type sets around... and I love the set sampler type card kits, where they can get the stamp set and the ideas in one night, go home fired up and ready! Thanks for all of the sharing that you do - daily too! I can't keep up!!
Thanks, Rhonda

Sue Stout

How about a variety of gift card holders-birthday, Christmas, wedding, etc.? The ones from the store are all so blah. I love your ideas and often check your blog for inspiration!

Angela B

I adore everything you make. You are so talented. I love when people do other things with the scrapbook kits (assortment of cards, 3D items, etc) so that would be fun. I also love all the things you have created using the top note die. Lastly, manly birthday cards are something I have trouble with and would appreciate a kit for that. Thanks for sharing your talent with us -

Cheri Lynn Russo

Love the blog! Love all your ideas and techniques! Thanks so much for sharing! I would love to see something for camping or outdoorsy items. My son is a boyscout and we do a lot of boating and camping in our family.

Betty Kincannon


Your blog is teriffic!! You are such an inspiration, not only in your stamping but also starting the Disaster Response Network.
I too would like to see a masculine kit,I tend to go with flowers a lot. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas!!


Sue McMillen

I have purchased many of your kits and love them! I, like a few others, would love to see masculine cards or kits. I have no clue what to do with a man's card so I usually end up purchasing one! (I know, I'm bad!!) Thanks for all you do to inspire us!
Sue M.

Your blog is teriffic!! You are such an inspiration, not only in your stamping, but also starting the Disaster Response Network. I too would love to see a masculine kit, I tend to do flowers a lot.
Thanks for sharing!!


I would like to see a class about Halloween treat/gift bags & cards. Love your blog!

Lizz Obstarczyk

I have been following your blog for a very long time. I CASE everything I can. Your designs, templates, and color coordinating are amazing. You have quite an eye for positioning, detailing and embellishing. Are you a fashion designer? or home decorator? cause you are quite adept and very artistic.
I've followed your creations on SUDSOL..I couldn't keep up with you!


Love your blog. Would love to see more ideas for masculine cards. It's the hardest type of card for me to create.


thanks for the chance to win.
I would love to see some ideas for Masculine cards and 3 D Projects

Dawn Mondro

I would like to see a kit for that sweet Matchbox treasure chest you made a few weeks back.

Tory B

I love your eye for color, Gretchen. I guess a masculine kit would be nice to see.

Sheryl Kincaid

I'd like to see an all occasion card kit + card holder with cards that could be for men or women.

Alicia W.

I visit your blog all the time and love your work. I'd like to see a guy card kit or technique kits. Thanks

Deb Hagberg

Love, love, love that Tea Party DP on the clipboards! I just ordered 3 packs for a class I'm having. I and "my girls" like inexpensive (but USEFUL)gift ideas. They are teachers and get some really horrid gifts! Any cute card sets especially with gift boxes, the little clipboards, etc are most welcome!

Tammy Glaser

I have followed your work for a while now and you do amazing work. I would like to see a new and different one sheet wonder idea. I also like to see different color schemes using the same stamp set. The same card but different colors.
Tammy Glaser


Your work is always fabulous! I would love to see a mini-scrapbook that could be used for a class. ThanksQ


You have so many wonderful ideas, I don't know what to suggest. All the ideas you post are so nice, I love visiting your blog just for the inspiration. I wish I was this talented!


Katie Brandt

I'm thinking about halloween and having a theme stamp class just for that. Now I know, you could do some wonderful 3-d items, which is what I am thinking.
Give it a try


fabulous kits that I loved. I would like to have more ideas of masculine and children cards also with themes. son in law is a navy and deploys to afghanstan so any ideas about that kits. ths.. bless ya.

Karol H

Love your site Gretchen! I save all the links to my favorite posts/ideas!
My suggestion would be for a kit that is related to 12 Step Recovery in some way! "Encouragement" cards...but with a 12 step theme..."One Day at a Time", Easy Does it", "First Things First", "Live and Let Live" etc...It may be quite the challenge as there are not any SU! stamp sets that I'm aware of with those sayings, but I bet you could do it!!!


Greetings from tropical island of Saipan! I would love to see more 3D objects/sets. I look forward to see your future creations!

Karen (stampin3)

wow - what great blog candy!! I'm always in awe of each of your projects. I like seeing everything - maybe a birthday or sympathy kit. You may already have done either/both, but I'm always running short on these 2 types.

Launa Bustamante

How about some grad. cards?! Tis the season. I love your work and the box with cards is really cute. Why not try for your more experienced scrapers/stampers the Flag book(that is on the demo site this month).

cathy morrison

thanks for all the inspiration so far. i think a good class on the go might be something for weddings, maybe an invitation and matching thank-you. Or--how about some baby announcements? Thanks again, and feel free to pull my name for the blog candy(lol). cathy

Karen Martinez

I love all of your work and ideas! So anything that you offer I am sure would be absolutely inspiring!

Marisol Gutierrez

I have a couple of your class on the go kits...I would love to see a variety of all occasion masculine cards...I always have trouble with these. Crossing my fingers for Blog Candy...I so want to see the Pink Flamingo DSP...and the Simple Friendship stamp set...woohoo!


I agree with so many here. Masculine card kits. For some reason, I hit stamper's block when I have to do cards for the distaff side. Thanks for all of your wonderful inspiration.


Hi Gretchen! Amazing creations for the tour. I would love to see some organizational kits...like a nice holder to hold supplies or something like that lol. Anyways keep up the great work and I hope my comment made sense =Þ


Gretchen, you do the nicest projects, your color combinations are always right on! I would love to see some mini albums. How cool would an album be made with the thick transparency sheets cut with the Top Note die???

Techniques would be cool too. I love tutorials!

Char in So Cal

A masculine card kit would be awesome!! They are always so difficult to come up with {grrrr}

Thanks for the op to win some YUMMY candy!
