Do not hesitate to purchase the DSP sampler kits. They are a fabulous way to try all the new papers before you buy a whole pack.

Thanks again.

Hi Gretchen,
I made the top note purses to hold graduation gifts for 2 frinds daughters that graduated last week. They loved them! The purses are easy and adorable. THanks!


I bought the tutorial for Frankie and Friends, and my daughter and I made them. I didn't have all the right punches, so I had to sub some stuff, but I LOVE the way they turned out. I'm trying to set up a class for this. Thanks so much. Oh and I made my very own Christmas ones that I will be putting on my blog. Thank you so much for the inspiration!!!!!!


I just love Frankie & Friends!! They are so cute! Actually everything you make is GREAT!!! I wish I was as creative as you Gretchen!!!!

Karen A

Received the Frankie & Friends tutorial -- they are adorable!


I just received my Frankie and Friends pdf file! It has such AWESOME, easy to follow directions, complete with great step-by-step photos. I'm lovin' how easy it will be to recreate these super cool boxes/cards. I was originally so disappointed that I couldn't order from outside the US, but if you have all the punches, I would MOST DEFINITELY recommend purchasing the EXCELLENT pdf directions file to follow to make these yourself. Thanks so much Gretchen for a super product!

Karen J

Hi Gretchen, love your designs! The santa and side kicks I ordered are too darn cute. My only suggestion is to please include the size of the punches used.

We have six inches of snow, but I drove one half of mile to my mailbox to get my mail. Imagine my delight to see my package of SU Designer Paper and Ribbons. This is my first time (and not my last) of ordering from Gretchen. The DP was labeled and the ribbons were neatly placed on cardboard. Can't wait to get started!


I have many of your tutorials and i love what you do. You are very creative. Thank you Gretchen.
J'ai plusieurs de vos tutoriaux et j'adore ce que vous faite. Vous êtes vraiment créative. Merci beaucoup Gretchen.

Jan Waters

I received my DSP & Ribbon sampler today. Love everything....the Satin Ribbon is beautiful. Thank you for offering the sampler share kits, it's such a great way to get some of the new produts.


I received the Valentine's Train and the Choirs of Angels tutorials. Thank you for sharing. You did a fabulous job designing them both!

Carol Franklin

I just can't say enough good things about Gretchen and her tutorials! The directions are so easy to follow, coupled with detailed photos make it seem as tho she's right there with you! Gretchen is very giving of her time and knowledge so I will be back, often!
Sincerely, Carol Franklin

Judy Lawhon

Love, love, love all your tutorials! The directions are great! I get such rave reviews from my customers when they see the things I've created. Of course, I give all the credit to you, Gretchen, and encourage them to purchase your kits as well! I plan to make an Easter train with a stamped Bunny as the conductor and my Good Egg chick waving good-bye from the caboose!

Heather Dean

I have bought many of Gretchen's tutorials and they are fantastic. The instructions are clear and there are many pictures to follow. I made 28 of the Frankie and Friends for my son's kindergarten class for Halloween and they loved them. I also made the Santa and Friends and Choir baskets (though I changed it up a bit to use the top note die instead of the basket) and made a wonderful Christmas banner with them and the Ho Ho Ho from Stampin Up. I just finished making the Valentine's Train for my 5 year old son for V-day and I know he will just love it and want to play with it (oh no :)). And I am (im)patiently waiting for the Whimisical Wings kit (this time I bought the kit) because I know I will love it like everything else Gretchen has created!! So glad you are so talented, Gretchen, and generously share those talents with us!!

Andrea Bowers

I received all three of my tutorials and accompanying supplies. Ordering was easy and I received the supplies within the week of ordering. I will definitely be ordering again. Can't wait to get started on these projects and will have the whole day since our office is closed due to the snow. Thanks Gretchen.

Reann Moretto

Hey Gretchen,

I've lost count of all the kits I've ordered from you, but I believe I've ordered most all of them! I wish to tell everyone that I have ALWAYS been delighted with the rapid delivery, the instructions, photos and the pricise cutting of the materials.

Each and every kit has been fun to put together and has garnered many wonderful comments, and tons of "WOWs". I highly recommend your kits and tutorials to everyone -

You Rock Girlfriend, you are truly talented!

Jeanie Pauketat

Gretchen, great train set, fast delivery, and well packaged. I'll be looking for more kits to purchase in the future.

Kay Kibbel

I purchased 3 online tutorials (So Tweet,Big Shot Bunny,Beautiful Baskets). I love your work. I purchase the tutorials so I can make up little gifts that I donate to our church. The church in turn takes my gifts to shut-ins and hospital patients. They love them. Thanks for sharing your talents and creating happiness for others. Kay

Kristy Bettenhausen

I just received the tutorial for "Frankie & Friends" I am so excited to make them & plan a class with my customers.
