Come Closer Please

Hi there blog friends!  It’s been a great start of the year for me.   January is a busy month (always is) with CHA on the very near horizon and you know that means new Spellbinders die templates too!  Yes I’ve been up to my elbows in delightful things that you’ll see very soon.  As I have done for the past several years, I reflect back over the past year.  It’s funny, I can remember what was going on in my life when I look back through each month of cards and projects.  Not very often will I ask you to leave a comment, and I’m not digging for compliments, but I’m especially interested in knowing what style you found here that inspired you as a crafter.  I craft from my heart and what comes through is often a measurement of something I’m feeling, something that inspired me, something I’ve prayed about or happy circumstance.  That’s a given, but at the same time I’d love to be able to offer what interests you.  Take a walk with me back through the entire year of 2011.  If you are so inclined (as one of my sweet readers who always implores me to do pink cards), I’d love to know what style you found that makes amazingpapergrace one of your daily stops.

Here we go . . .

Thanks for helping me through 2011, I’m looking forward to crafting with you in 2012!!

    Your cards have such elegance and beauty. While I can’t create cards like yours, I get inspiration and ideas from you cards and layouts. Thanks for all you share.ReplyCancel

  • Rene from OZ xoJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:16 am

    Yes, elegance is the correct wording for your cards, there is so much beauty in them and a lot of love. Thank you for all the inspiration over the last twelve months.

    Your use of Spellbinders is what initially caught my eye.. the way you mix and match them in your designs. I love the pearls, the bows, and best of all, the faith that pours out of your cards. Very special!ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl LeaJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:21 am

    I just started cardmaking within the past year and your blog was one of the first ones I found. Every single card or project you make is always so perfect AND unique. You really amaze me with your creativity. One of my favorite things about your cards (besides the most obvious–the gorgeous bows), is the creative way you layer Spellbinder dies. I’ve barely scratched the surface with owning SB dies, but when I see what you make with yours, I’m always inspired to get more creative with mine. I hope 2012 brings you happiness beyond measure! ~Hugs, CherylReplyCancel

  • Julie RaeJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:22 am

    I enjoy all of your work so choosing just one is impossible. My eye/brain immediately eliminates those with pink. I enjoy all your 3-D creations and numbers 3, 13, and 28 of this collection.

    A Happy and Healthy New Year to you Becca!ReplyCancel

    Wow! is all I can say! I don’t know how you do it day after day – creating so much beauty and elegance with a little paper, ink, ribbon! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth HurlimanJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:25 am

    Hi Becca,
    I could not pick my favorite, because they are all beautiful. It just amazes me how you put it all together and the scripture verses, well that just tops it off. God’s Word is so true and inspiring and it’s just such a blessing to read how you depend on HIM! What would we do without HIM?
    May the Lord continue to bless you with His gifts and thanks for being such a blessing to me as well as so many others.
    In His Great Love,

  • jamie schnirchJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:25 am

    As Julie above said, it was initially the Spellbinder samples that drew me in, but I love all the rest too. Your color choices are awesome, and you encourage me to add more to my creations (I am shy about a lot of embellishments or bling, although I love them!).ReplyCancel

  • BonnieJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:28 am

    Wow! The first blog I ever read and the first card I ever copied was one of yours…it was hard but oh, so beautiful. It was the one you did for an Easter project with pink ribbon lacing. I changed just it a little bit as I worked it on a smaller card but did I ever get the compliments!! All your cards are elegant and as a reader, I could tell you put your heart into each one. This years collection is no different – I love them all.ReplyCancel

  • Carole ScheelJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:31 am

    Most of the cards that I make are modled after your cards. As I am new to card making, I haven’t collected as many beautiful papers as you have and I do a lot of ajusting to make my cards. But you really are an insperation to me. Thank you. CaroleReplyCancel

  • CathyJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:32 am

    Every card you make is my favorite. I just sit , look, and wish I had one tenth of your talent. If I had to pick just one, number 21 is my fav.ReplyCancel

    Becca I have been following your blog for close to two years. You always amze me with your creations. I like how you give the Lord glory through your work. Keep it up gf!!! I couldn;t pick a favorite out of those beauties!ReplyCancel

  • Susan WhiteheadJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:44 am

    I cannot pick out one individual card, they are all of great inspiration, especially those ones that I can adapt with the limited supply of spellbinders dies that I have. If I have to pick No: 3. You are so talented.ReplyCancel

  • Lizette van DamJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:44 am

    Hi Becca, I am from South Africa and must tell you your cards are absoluteyl stunning. Can I ask what embossing fodler you used for card WRBF-2288-2011, I would like to order it.


  • Louise HJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:46 am

    Hi Becca,
    I’m sorry, I can’t pick any favourites as they all their own individual styles and exquisite details. Thank you so much for continuing to share your amazing talent.

    happy new year Becca-just back and catching up- thank you for keeping me inspired- I love all your works/products they are feminine and pretty but never to over the top with construction- I also love the way you think outside the square or box so to speakReplyCancel

  • DWDJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:50 am

    I found your blog about 8 mos after you started blogging. I was drawn to the elegance of your cards. I think your use of Spellbinders, ribbon and pearls caught my attention. I am still in awe of every card you post. I especially love your 3-D projects. But of this group, I’d have to pick the Cottage Pop-up card.ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie MitchellJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:51 am

    I love the soft feminine touches you add to your elegant cards. I have several favourites, too, which seem to include lace and pearls…..ReplyCancel

  • Lisa HarrisJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:01 am

    Hi Rebecca,
    I just found your blog about two months ago and have been a huge fan ever since! For me, I love best all of your projects that have that ornate, vintag style. You definitely have wonderful colour and spatial senses – your amazing use of die cuts and embellishments had me from ‘Amazing’ – the first word in the name of your company affiliate.
    I can’t wait to see what you cook up in 2012, along with the rest of your followers. May it be a year of prosperity and happy crafting for us all.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara JayJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:17 am

    I can’t chose because all of your cards are so beautiful . I love the elegance of card #2 and the feminine charm of card #8. The way you use Spellbinder dies is amazing. I never pre-order any Spellbinder dies after CHA until I see what you do with them. I have seen dies released that were blah to me and then I saw a wow card you made with them and I want them.
    All I want to see in 2012 are cards that are “Simply Becca” :) You have a very unique style that I love and I would recognize yours if there were a hundred different cards with no designer names attachedReplyCancel

  • LydiaJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:20 am

    Your cardy are all so beautiful and elegant. Don’t have a special favourite. I’m always happy when there’s an email in my box about new things on your blog. Hope to see such beautiful things also in 2012.ReplyCancel

  • Sally-Ann (From Down Under)January 4, 2012 - 2:23 am

    Hi Becca, you have such a distinctive style I can spot your cards at a distance! I too have recently come across your wonderful blog and website. The thing about your cards is that they inspire me to have a go; they ARE possible to do and at times can really challenge my developing crafting skills. Therein lies the trick – for me to get all that inspiration in one place is pretty marvellous.
    I have become a a keen advocate and user of Spellbinders dies, JustRite and Waltzingmouse stamps – all because of your work. I have entered a world I didn’t know existed and it really excites me and delights my family and friends because it keeps me out of mischief – and the added benefit – it’s great for the diet because you just can’t snack and make cards at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • sharon lJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:28 am

    Becca What draws me to your artwork is the mixing of the Spellbinders, beautiful bows, and your vintage designer papers. Having said that, here goes…from the top
    Row 1 3
    Row 6 2

  • Shelly SchmidtJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:33 am

    I am drawn to your beautiful soft colors- I love pink and the great tutorials and mix of spiritual stamps and the Spellbinders ideas you use. Plus, your cards are just knock out stunning!!! You are sweet and Oh so talented! I look forward to your posts and your inspiration! Thanks for a beautiful walk in your card garden!!!ReplyCancel

  • KathyJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:39 am

    I have to agree with all the ladies above. I can’t pick just one card (sort of like eating potato chips). All your cards are so beautiful and creative. I really like your use of lace and ribbons. Thanks for posting these. I am going to try the first card in row 2 for my Valentine anniversary this year. After seeing this card in your blog I bought the embossing folder. Your talent is simply amazing Becca.ReplyCancel

  • ChrisJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:40 am

    As always beautiful cards from a beautiful mind.
    If I had to pick a favorite or two, Row 1 Cards 2+3.
    Take care Becca and never change.ReplyCancel

  • MaryannJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:40 am

    Ooh Becca, I sure can´t pic any favorites, as I simply love all your work, and always looks forward to see, what you´ll surprice us with next time, and I´ve always been positive surprised every time. I love your romantic style and flair for colors and you always use such gorgeous papers and dies. Like many here, I´m a total fan of Spellbinders dies and you´re always showing such awesome and untraditional ways to use them, which I absolutely love.
    All your work is sooooo gorgeous and I don´t think, you´ve ever made anything, I didn´t like, and you´re inspiring me in so many different ways all the time, so that I have dared to try many things, I would never have believed a few years ago, but you always make everything seem so easy, that we all really believe, we can do it too, and dare to try, and thank you so much for that. You are a huge inspiration in anything you do, and I just hope, you´ll continue the way, you have done until now, as it has been soo awesome.
    Have a wonderful New Year hun and keep on like always hun, you´re doing such a wonderful job as it is.ReplyCancel

  • JOC LUHRSJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:58 am

    I find much inspiration in your cards, Bekka. I loved (counting from the top) Nos. 4, 11, 28. Through the year I also loved, Be Faithful, Faith Looks Up, Christmas Ornaments, Christmas Tree Collage, Gatefold Christmas Card to name a few. I absolutely loved the frame you created using the MS Garden Trellis Punch. Pray that your New Year will be filled with much happiness, good health, and all God’s richest blessings.ReplyCancel

  • Pat KinserJanuary 4, 2012 - 3:00 am

    Becca I simply adore you and your style of artistry. As I have said in the past, you are surely my inspiration. If I am down, and many a day that is the class as I am in constant pain, I know I can always get a good feeling inside when I come over and visit you. You certainly are a wonderful spokeperson for the products you use. I see the wonderment of crafting. I hope your issues come to a settlement soon. I to know how bad you can feel when your body rebels. Please keep up the wonderful work you do. I so enjoy your techniques and videos. I could not pick one favorite, but I really like number 3 and number 6. I also enjoy the different ways you use products, always thinking out side of the box. Such great inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing with us.ReplyCancel

  • JessicaJanuary 4, 2012 - 3:13 am

    I always love seeing the 3 dimentional projects. That pop up card was exquisite! I love your choice of colors.But the color doesn’t always take center stage. I love your lovely bows, and your use of laces etc. But what makes me come back is that I never know what I’m going to see. I only know that it will be positively gorgeous! I also enjoy your videos, I’ve learned a lot from them. Thanks for sharing yourself with us.ReplyCancel

  • Trish AveryJanuary 4, 2012 - 3:18 am

    Becca you are just so amazing the way you use your Spellbinders and your stamps and of course not forgetting your bows. I have tried to copy (with what I have) some of your cards.
    But I like the elegance and the simplicity of your cards Your punch work is fantastic and no 14 is a prime example of this. but images 12 & 18,are wonderful as are your Christmas 25 & 26.
    Thank you so much for all your ideas that I get from just looking at your cards.
    Hugs Trish.ReplyCancel

  • ColetteJanuary 4, 2012 - 3:37 am

    Recently joined. They are all stunning beautiful cards… you definetely did those cards with a lot of love. My favorites are 1 to 5, 14, 17 & 28 but I like them all. Hopefully, I will have time to do cards in 2012, been extremely busy with family, recently lost my dad and my sister and my mom just got operated for a knee replacement, I don’t really have a lot of time right now. Keep on posting because you cards are wonderful and they inspired a lot of us.
    Have a great New Year, lots of health.

  • Nancy SchultzJanuary 4, 2012 - 3:40 am

    Hi Becca…I love to look at your blog every day. I am not good at always leaving comments but I love your work you have an amazing talent and I am so thankful that you share your talent with all of us. I love how elegant your cards are but yet they have a simplicity about them as well. You totally amaze me with what you can do with Spellbinders and I have purchased many based on your designs. Love my Spellbinders! I love everything that you make and I love your tutorials. Thank you so much!ReplyCancel

  • AnneJanuary 4, 2012 - 4:08 am

  • Sara TannerJanuary 4, 2012 - 4:12 am

    I don’t post often either but I LOVE all your work. In fact I recently just went through your entire blog again. Yes I said ENTIRE blog and AGAIN… I’ve never done that with anyone’s blog and the reason I’ve done it here is because everyone of your projects is beautiful/stunning. I often think .. “How on earth does she keep improving and her work keep getting better and better. It just seems impossible. But it’s true. :) From the beginning of your blog to your last entry you can see a progression in your work. It’s all beautiful and inspiring… The colors and papers you choose the layout and thought put into each piece. I’ve been to blog’s where people just slap something together and it shows. One can tell the projects on this blog have time, thought and effort put into them. You can only say stunning so many times before it sounds artificial but in your case each piece truly is. I couldn’t pick just one fav card or style. I love them all as well as the boxes and crafty things such as ornaments etc. I look forward to coming here everyday. I don’t think there’s anything you could change, as one’s work reflects one’s personal style and also speaks about the person them self and I see nothing to change. It’s all beautiful and inspiring. :)ReplyCancel

  • AstridJanuary 4, 2012 - 4:24 am

    Becca, all of your cards are amazing and I get inspiration from them on an almost daily basis. My great love is vintage, my favourites therefore are probably the ones in vintagy colours, listed by number they are: 2, 7, 13, 25, 26 and 29. I found you through Waltzing Mouse stamps and my absolute fav is 26. I also love all of your 3 D projects and want to use this opportunity to thank you for all your beautiful tutorials and your generosity of spirit!ReplyCancel

  • Cynthia WilliamsonJanuary 4, 2012 - 4:31 am

    You ask us to choose which style we like best and the best answer I can give to that is ” Becca Style” . All your cards are in your own unique style and it would be so easy to pick a Becca card from a line-up. All your cards have an elegance which comes from your perfect co-ordination of paper, accessories and sentiment and frequently a vintage feel. If I like one card better than another it is only because I have a preference for a certain colour or accessory that day.
    I don’t always post as often as I should , but if you are missing from my inbox for a few days , I worry about you and miss my injection of beauty for that day.
    So Happy New Year Becca and just keep on making those beautiful Becca cards.

  • carol parkerJanuary 4, 2012 - 4:34 am

    Hi Becca,

    what a difficult choice you have given us. Your cards are truly a work of art and so clearly come from your heart… thank you for the sheer pleasure of visiting your blog and for the inspiration you give.

    If I have to pick one card that WOWed me more than the rest it has to be the pop-up Xmas house…. I just couldn’t work out how you had done it despite dashing out to get the stamps. Please please would you give us a tutorial. A big ask, I know but maybe one you might consider. Carol.xxReplyCancel

  • Nan GJanuary 4, 2012 - 4:35 am

    I have to say also that picking A favorite is impossible! I’m drawn to those with less pink on them but they are all gorgeous! I follow your blog for your creative use of Spellbinders dies, lace and those drop dead bows! Your 3D pieces this year have been flat out amazing! Since I have difficulty holding markers or pencils for coloring my style has evolved to using more die cuts and your blog is a such an inspiration to me! The Lord has blessed you with a great talent and we are so appreciative of your sharing it with us. God bless you in the new year.ReplyCancel

  • AmandaMJanuary 4, 2012 - 4:59 am

    I know you can’t do Christmas cards all year, but I have to thank you because you were a huge inspiration for my own this year. I also really love anything Waltzingmouse. They’re my favorite stamps, and you’re one of my favorite designers. Best combination! Thank you for sharing so much with us all. God Bless you!ReplyCancel

  • Judy SteeleJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:10 am

    Becca, each time I see one of your new creations I’m in aww. You are asking a tough question to narrow it to one favorite. I just couldn’t make up my mind. You are truly amazing. Thank You for sharing your beautiful work.ReplyCancel

  • Yvonne TuneJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:19 am

    Hi Becca
    Each and everyone of those cards have inspired me, I teach card making in Ireland, and although I don’t have the items or Stamp, you have used I can always take your design as my inspiration,
    and come up with my own design from it,
    thank you so much
    love YvonneReplyCancel

  • Rachel BrooksJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:32 am

    I’d never create cards like you do, but get all kinds of ideas from looking at your masterpieces. Layering is one thing I must try after seeing how you do so many layers for such great effects. The ribbons I admire, but am not into them myself – too fussy. I’m pretty plain Jane, but you inspire me and totally amaze me. Like dreaming up the folding birdcage card. I’d never tackle anything like that, but honor you for working out all the details! Happy creating in 2012~ReplyCancel

  • chrisdJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:32 am

    Each of your cards are so special with your attention to details but I would have to say, #25, Faith look Up,and the Cottage pop up. I so enjoy your videos as it is easier to see a technique demonstrated. Thanks also for sharing from the heart with us. I’m always happy when my inbox lets me know I have an update from Becca. Wishing you happy adventures in 2012 and looking forward to reading about them!ReplyCancel

  • Debbie BJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:38 am

    Please don’t make me choose. I love it all! I would like to know what your card dimensions generally are. I usually do A2 cards and I cannot get all of the beautiful stuff on mine that you get on yours, so I am assuming your cards are more like 6×6 cards. Please keep doing what you do best and that is crafting from the heart. That will keep you right in the zone! Prayers for you and your family go up everyday.ReplyCancel

  • BrakkersJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:40 am

    Like everyone else it is near impossible to choose as your work is always sheer perfection and then some!!! My favourites though are numbers
    4, 21 and 26.


  • EileenJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:43 am

    Hi Becca
    I love all your work, especially when you come up with a new technique and show us how – but my absolute favourites from this selection are numbers 25 (the poinsettia card) and 28

  • JudyJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:52 am

    Hi Becca. I think what I like most about your blog is that you post such a wide range of things, not only cards, but some really nifty projects, and you are always using the latest in designs and supplies. You also do such a great job with your tutorials. One more thing that I like about your blog is that occasionally you include a little personal information about how things are going in your life, which I think your readers are always interested in knowing, because we care about you so much. I hope that some day I can meet you in person.ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca, it would be so hard to pick out a favorite as all of your creations are beautiful, who wouldn’t love to receive one in the mail. I tend to like the pink cards as I love the color pink but in this case I love them all. I also love your Becca bits, you are so good at explaining how you do things and I am so thankful that you are willing to share your knowledge with us.ReplyCancel

  • BirdJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:10 am

    I could very easily give you reasons why I love every single card you make but 2 in particular inspired me in this selection.

    I absolutely LOVE the 3rd card here, the colour scheme is so striking and luxurious looking but putting such colours together would never occur to me in a month of Sundays!

    I also love the 8th card as the layout is so different, I love the way you’ve added your focal image to the corner of your card, it was such a refreshing idea to me as we all get so used to placing the focal image to the center of the card.

    I look forward to seeing what wonderful creations you will share with us in 2012, Happy New Year Becca! :)ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn ClarkJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:15 am

    Amazing Paper Grace is one of my daily stops because I so admire your God given talent and how willing you are to share it with us. I do not have your talent but you inspire me to try so many different things and after visiting with you, it just puts a smile on my face.

    I like all your cards, can’t pick a favorite. God bless.ReplyCancel

  • tanja souterJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:19 am

    All your cards are so beautiful Becca but looking back these are my favourite three:nos 6, 19 and 23. 6 and 19 are my faves because of the beautiful background papers (K and Co?) and 23 is gorgeous with the bird cage and gingham. Personally I am not as fond of the really intricate lattice type dies and go for the frames and labels shapes more. I love it when you use pink and white/cream or blues/creams/beiges. Thanks for all the effort you put in your blog it is so inspiring in both a craft and a spiritual sense.ReplyCancel

  • Bonnie WeissJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:25 am

    You speak softly through your creations, Becca. Personally, it does not matter what you post on your blog, your creations are elegant and inspirational and something I always look forward to viewing. Your video tutorials and tips are wonderful for those of us who are visual learners but even your written “Supplies I Used” list is comprehensive. You always seem to know what to use but never go too far with any of it. You keep creating from your heart and we will be there to enjoy the fruits of your labour. (of course, anything PINK is appreciated!)ReplyCancel

  • JulieJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:28 am


    It was the layers and lace that caught my eye. Your style just touches a place in my heart. I find things that I like with several designers. However, I feel like everything you make works for me. Your Becca Bits are always helpful and something I can use.

    I also love the fact that you have lead me to products like ODBD, JustRite, Spellbinders, etc. With those products I can make beautiful cards, too.

    Please just keep doing what you are doing!


  • PeggySJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:30 am

    Becca, there are so many reasons I stop at your blog with each new entry. I love the way you layer your cards and projects and the creative way you use your dies and punches. We can’t forget those beautiful bows and all the embellishments. But probably the main reason I visit is that I love to hear what you have to say each day. As far as what inspires me, the pop up house card was exceptional. All of your projects inspire me and I miss it if there isn’t a post but anticipate the next one. Thank you for sharing your projects and heart with us. May you have a wonderful 2012.
    God bless,

  • RitaJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:36 am

    How can you ask us to choose a favorite when they are all favorites. Even if you had asked us to choose a least favorite, I still couldn’t do that. Your cards are absolutely stunning! Both my sister and I visit your blog on a daily basis and whoever gets there first warns the other – “wait until you see what Becca did today – it’s gorgeous!”

    So don’t ask us to choose – just keep creating and inspiring us.


  • EmmyJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:37 am

    Becca, you answered your own question…you mentioned that you make what’s in your heart and it shows!!! That’s what I love about your projects. They are ALWAYS eye candy. I could just sit and stare at them…the colors, layering, softness, unique techniques… end to reasons! I guess one of my favorite things to do is live vicariously through you….I neither have the supplies nor the time to create like you do, so I look at yours and dream of what could be……thanks for your inspiration!!ReplyCancel

    I am sorry but I can’t choose just one. I love them all!! The way you add your embellishments always inspire me to try and create something just as beautiful. I found your blog last year and am so glad I did! Here’s to another inspiring year of crafting!!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy SJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:56 am

    Becca your work is amazing. When I see what you create a calmness comes over me. It would be an honour to receive any of these cards as THE gift.
    I love how you manage to pick just the right colour combinations and the way you layer your cards. Your bows make a real difference as well. So have you figured out that I love all of your work.ReplyCancel

  • CheriJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:57 am

    Becca, they’re beautiful……I have a folder on my desktop computer that is entirely devoted to pictures of your cards. A few years ago I was in such a bad place, I lost my house in foreclosure, my husband served me divorce papers a week before our 20th anniversary, I lost my job……oh UGGHH! I grieved when your husband died, (I had one die many years ago) because you make your followers feels like your BFF’s. I always used your cards for inspiration, and still do. I hope that 2012 will bring you much happiness & health because the beauty within comes through your artistry………….CheriReplyCancel

  • SheriJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:58 am

    This is so not fair. You expect me to pick a favorite? I could pick each and every one of them. My jaw always hits the floor when you have created something new. Ok, in this exact moment in time, I will say the one with the peach colors and three butterflies that are 3D. Now ask me again in 30 seconds and it will change but I will hit send before that happens :) Hugs to youReplyCancel

  • KayeJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:59 am

    For me your cards are a work of art. I look at all of them with such awe. Your creativity, wherever, it comes from is one of the most amazing talent I have seen.

    I particularly love your layering techniques and how you mix and match all your dies. If I ever need an idea all I have to do is click on your site and (although I can get lost for an hour or so) I always walk away with something.

    Happy New Year to you. I cannot wait to see what you bring up in 2012.

    My style is very different from yours and I don’t dain to emulate you, but I love your work. I love to read the words of faith; they are very poignant and often cause me to pause in a busy life. I have purchased some stamps and spellbinders as a result of seeing your use of them. Some of your items are not available in England.

    If I have to chose one card: first card on the fourth row.

    God Bless You and Yours.ReplyCancel

  • Trisha B.January 4, 2012 - 7:19 am

    What an incredible opportunity to see everything you did in one place. I’m drawn to everything in black and gold. They’re stunning! When I was a little girl I was very shy and when we did “temper paints” (I didn’t know what they were really called) by the time I got to the paints, the only color left was black. The school counselor thought I was depressed until they figured out I wasn’t inclined to push my way through the group to get the more popular colors, so I’ve been playing with black all my life.

    I can’t believe I missed the pop-up card! It is truly amazing! But the one that stuck this year (my cat will still watch the video any time I’ll play it for him) is the pin cushion. I can’t tell you how many pin cushions I made for Christmas presents this year! They were loved by everyone who got one. I donated one to our local craft fair as a door prize and everyone oohed and aahed when they held it up as they drew the number. I thank you for that.

    Okay, too much information. But I do love your stuff and appreciate your sharing it with us.ReplyCancel

    After looking at each card several times, I have concluded that I cannot even begin to pick a favorite. They are all quite extraordinary and beautiful. Your blog was the first one I ever stumbled upon and I still read it each day. I hope you realize how much you inspire your readers – you truly are a blessing to us. On days when you have not posted a card, my day is not complete. Only a beautiful person can certainly create such special cards. Thanks for all your inspiration.ReplyCancel

    So many pretty cards and projects! You know what I find is the common thread among all your work? It’s the beauty, the elegance and love that comes through in each one. They are not just put together, they are created with care and attention to details.
    Thank you for sharing and I can’t wait to see what you come up with this year! :)ReplyCancel

  • Diane JJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:31 am

    It is what you do with the card embellishments, spellbinders,boughs,bling etc. They are just so different on every card. It is just hard to chose just one. Everyone is just gorgeous.ReplyCancel

  • Marlene IacuzziJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:31 am

    I think my favorite is the pop up house, but with the exchange rate, buying Waltzingmouse stamps is hard to justify, and the labor involved in this one is way high on the scale of what I attempt. But I did buy two sets from this company due to your inspiration. I tend toward the simpler ones which use the Spellbinders,and paper that I can kind of duplicate. Every one of your cards thrills me, however.ReplyCancel

    # 5- 6- 23- 24- 27 I don’t like.
    It is just because you ask for this exercice it is not often I can do something for you.
    Maybe it can be interesting for you if we can put a number for the appreciation of each card you do . You have the best blog for submit a comment maybe you can add a choice to click #1 to 5.
    I think people love you so much than they prefer not to tell something critical on your work in case they hurt you.

Very inspiring but I need some help figuring out how to do some of it! Thanks so much for another year of beauty and inspiration. God bless you in 2012.ReplyCancel

  • MillieJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:12 am

    Becca, it would be easier I think to say what didn’t like as much. But then again, even the ones I don’t “like” as much, challenge me to do something different. I love your bows and I love that you shared how to do them and even better, I can actually do them too. Did I mention that I am bow challenged? Thanks again for ALL of your cards.ReplyCancel

  • Kay MJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:13 am

    Your creativity is what always amazes me. Like some of the others have said, the way you can find something that is on sale and turn it into something of beauty inspires me. Your bows (which I had my husband make me a “peg bow maker”) really pulled me in. The way you layer your Spellbinders makes me want to do that to my cards and I always get in a hurry to get them done and forget about the layering. I love the touches of lace and pearls to your cards to make them “vintage” looking. Just keep on doing what you are doing, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • JeanJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:14 am

    Hi Becca ~ this is a tough assignment:). Each of your cards is as stunning as the last one and I’ve been following your blog for a long time, and love it! It’s nearly impossible to pick out even a dozen favorites from your selection since your creativity offers something to every reader. I do love the elegant cards and the use of soft colors.

  • Sandy MJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:20 am

    Are you kidding me? Chose a style I like from among your cards from last year? Can a mother of 4 pick which child is her favorite? Can’t be done. At least by me. I enjoy absolutely anything you put on this blog. NEVER have I seen a card that didn’t inspire. I do love the way you layer so many things that I would never have even though about using. But it works. And the beautiul bows and bling. Not to mention you always have the perfect sayings to compliment each and every card.ReplyCancel

I also LOVE how you make things that are DIFFERENT from the ordinary, those pop-up cards are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The 3D items, pin-cushion, bird cage & little house! (I know some of those are pop-up cards, but I consider those 3D gifts too!) And I LOVE your gift combos! Little boxes with matching cards!!!! It’s ALL “Becca!” SIGH! Your blog is STILL THE FIRST I look for each day! :)ReplyCancel

  • Pat BJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:28 am

    I agree that it is too hard to pick favorites. I find so much inspiration in your creating. I LOVE Spellbinders & look to you for inspiration in using combinations (many I would NEVER think of on my own). We all look for ideas to inspire us to be creative in many ways. I don’t feel that I “copy” but use small parts in ways that are new to me. You help each of us grow in our creativity. Keep up your wonderful cards. Creating is wonderful “therapy for healing”. We hope your 2012 brings you joy & happiness & continued love for what you do. THANK YOU !!

  • Dottie DavisJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:32 am

    You have asked a difficult question of us as we love all of your cards. You have a style that in some degree comes out in each card. I guess I would comment on the ones that jump out at me because of the color. Pink is lovely but my very favorite is the first one in the last row, the black and ivory one. It isn’t the most difficult one to make as some of your cards have had a lot of planning in them to pull them off. So, in this case it must just be the color contrast that appeals to me. Believe me they all are gorgeous and I would be honored to receive any one of them in the mail. On an improvement note, there have been a couple of cards, not included in these cards, that even with your description space, it was unclear how you did it. We gotta know! so not only do your product companies sell but that we can create works of art like you. God bless you in this adventure called Life!ReplyCancel

  • Donna PolleyJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:36 am

    I apologise in advance but I just couldn’t choose 1 card, so my favourites are:-
    1-2-11-16-17-25-26-28 see what I mean? <3 …..If I really had to choose one card I think it would have to be the pop-up house card hmmmm or maybe one of the Christmas cards….there are just too many to choose from. I really admire the care you take with each card, I love the way you use the Spellbinder dies and your colour compositions are wonderful ….you are a truely artistic lady who is so kind in sharing her knowledge and expertise with all of us.

  • MarilynJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:42 am

    To answer your question is very hard, ALL of your cards are an inspiration and beautiful. I realize the cards that I’ve tried to make that are similar to yours are all in the shades of pink on your site, but I make them in tones of lavender, which is my favorite color along with some a lite sage.
    I love your bows, stick pins, and pearl embellishments, this always adds such elegance to your cards.It would be a joy to meet you and watch you work in person, you are such an inspiration to me.
    I can hardly wait to see what 2012 brings you on your blog site for inspiration to all of us!

    15, 17, 28 and 30 of 31. Those are my favorite of the above. Don’t know if that helps you at all. I do know I prefer not as much pink, but because it is your favorite color and I love what you do I don’t mind and I can always change the color scheme of your card if I try to case it. I also know I ALWAYS am wowed by your cards or whatever you do, get inspiration by your work and love your personality. That is what is important to me – that is what is the common thread. Blessings Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Yo GlennJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:48 am

  • Karen WeddingJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:51 am

    I love when you do paper crafting. I love making little things to put candies, little gifts into. But, I also love how you have the uncanny ability to put together amazing cards with so many layers of Spellbinders.

  • TeresaJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:51 am

    I love everything you create. When I can’t come up with something on my own I can always come to your blog for inspiration. I especially like what you do with spellbinders.

I know you have a few tutorials, but I would like more. I’m a visual person. I’m still a novice – tring to reach perfection like in your cards. I have just started using spellbinder dies and not really sure how to make them work to get the effedts that you have on your cards. I’ll keep watching and trying.

    I love looking at your 3D work and popups but not something I have conquered. I take a little from every card you do to learn from. I love Spellbinders and use them on nearly every card I make. If I have to choose, I could only narrow it down to 3…..9, 15, 21. Is there something about the cards on the right side! Happy New Year.ReplyCancel

Your work is impeccable and anything you do delights me.

    it is impossible for me to pick a fav cuz they are all my favs. seriously… i come to your blog daily and am always blown away, inspired, awed, and have an itch to try to come up to your standards. your elegant, classic, beautiful style is perfect, don’t change a thing. craft the way you are inspired and what calls out to you, that is the real art. i appreciate the time and effort you take not only in making the cards, blogging about them and little parts of your life but in the generosity of spirt that includes blog candy and tutorials. LOVE the tutorials, even on what you think are simple things, they may not be so simple for the rest of us. so if i was to sugg a change,,,, more tutorials or at least more of them in one place. especailly on measuring those punch all over the page punches,, can’t get the hang of them. thank youReplyCancel

You are always an inspiration and look forward to seeing what yo create this next year.

  • NikiJanuary 4, 2012 - 9:29 am

    I find all of your cards amazing. I love the way you use the Spellbinders and other shapes in new and interesting ways. It helps me to stretch my craft budget when I see you have combined items in ways I would not have thought possible. I am in awe of your ribbons, bows and other embellishments. I tend to be more focused on stamping, less on the embellishments. You inspire me to add some fancies to my cards, and it really livens them up.

    Thanks for all your sharing!ReplyCancel

  • JeanJanuary 4, 2012 - 9:29 am

    Becca, It is very difficult too choose just one. Every card inspires me to look at what I have available in my stash in a different way. You are so creative in the way you layer cards, create dimension, coordinate colors and your creative design process is exciting and brings card making to a different level. Your cards and designs are so beautiful. They have to be a reflection of you. Thank you for sharing your delightful talent with all of us in blogville who can’t wait to see your next work of art that is reflective of you!ReplyCancel

    You are my all-time-favorite designer … I have tons of your cards in My Favorites on SCS and I subscribe to your blog. I love everything you do. Even though I’m not a “pink person” like your friend, I can visualize your pink cards in other color combinations. I like your cards because they are generally not “cutesy”. I like a card that is a little more “adult” and formal and your designs fit the ticket for me. Of the list you published, here are my favorites:
    1 of 42 – Pop-up Card Collage
    3 of 42 – WRBF-2257-2011 (Heart to Heart)
    12 of 42 – WRBF-2593-2011 (With Gratitude)
    13 of 42 – WRBF-2604-2011 (My Father the One …)
    25 of 42 – WRBF-2873-2011 ((Christmas Blessings)
    26 of 42 – WRBF-2910-2011 (Santa Claus is Coming …)
    28 of 42 – WRBF-2929-2011 (Thank You)
    29 of 42 – WRBF-2937-2011 (Santa Claus is Coming …)

    oh my gosh, what DOESN’T inspire me with your work???? Ok ok, you want a real answer LOL,,,they are all inspiring, of course, but the ones I love the MOST are the ones with layers and layers of spellbinders and edgeabilities, etc,,,,,,,,,,I love when the layers start to blend and you can’t hardly tell which diecut is which,,which punch you used, or is that a piece of lace or a doily????,,,it just becomes one big lacy diecut,,,and you have inspiring talent as to which goes well with which,,,,,,,,well, I love that when I manage to create it i n my own work, and yours is extremely inspiring to me! Thank you for that!ReplyCancel

  • BarbieJanuary 4, 2012 - 9:47 am

    Becca, thanks for sharing again your unique creations from 2011. As I reviewed them I once again felt the same awe and inspiration I did with my initial viewing. How you manage to put pieces together with “just the right touch” continues to amaze me! My favorite is the birdcage – it is so precious! Thank you for the chance to reminisce and once again be motivated to achieve a higher artistic level.ReplyCancel

  • GlendaJanuary 4, 2012 - 10:04 am

    Dear, Dear Becca, you never have to fear you are fishing for compliments, you only have to post! Creating from the heart is a good thing and a good thing for the soul. When I stumbled across your blog what kept me coming back is the way you put things together. One doesn’t even need to CASE but just look to draw inspiration which is what I do. If ever Spellbinders needed a sales person you would definitely be it – LOL! Beyond that I absolutely LOVE Becca’s Bits! I love all of them but the bestest (that’s really a word) is the series you did with the punches! I’ve been doing this for 20+ years so you know how outdated many of my supplies are now and all I wanted to do was run out and update my punches so I could try that! A crafter of any level can easily follow along your journey and in most cases use what they have, you provide the inspiration. Many thanks for all you share in good times and bad. Please know that all the time and effort you put forth is ever so much appreciated. It is easy to see the love you put in every piece. Now I have to go and find some of those magnificent creations I missed last year, like that HOUSE for starters! My gracious but I had to look at those pictures a while to figure that one out – LOL! That would be quite a surprise to open that card!

  • Regina NJanuary 4, 2012 - 10:04 am

I sit a while and just absorb the beauty. Your color combos, use of PP, pearls, lace, ribbon, and amazing bows all inspire me. Love the beautiful sentiments you use as well.

    Becca, I love the variety of projects you do….elegant cards, to pop up house cards, to bird cage creations, to storage and bow making “contraptions”! LOL

    I also love the way you display your creations and the videos you share!

    This year, for Christmas, I used your picture frame pin cushion project idea and made pin cushions for my crafting friends. I found a small picture frame that is a bright yellow sunflower with a lady bug sitting on one of its petals. And I used red fabric for the center pin cushion part of the of the flower. I tied a green ribbon around the bottom of the picture frame so the ends resembled leaves! They turned out very very cute!

    So thank you very much for sharing the wealth of your wonderful creative mind!ReplyCancel

    Thank you, Becca for all the lovely inspiration! I’m glad I found you and your blog. I’m most encouraged by your faith and feel immediately connected as believers. Then I’m in total admiration of your beautiful work. I’m especially in awe of how you take a flat design and create a 3-D piece by multiplying it. So impressive and inspirational! Everything you make is done with elegance, unique and fresh ideas and ways to use craft products.

  • Mary SchmidtJanuary 4, 2012 - 11:27 am

    What amazes me is how you know which spellbinders you can layer and fit together, or cut apart to layer. They appear to be something that I don’t recognize. I look at your supply list to recognize what and how you fit them together. You use multiple layers and it looks so complicated and professional. I need a chart with all the possible combinations that can go with another nesti. You are doing a great job. I love to see what each day will bring.ReplyCancel

  • DonnaJanuary 4, 2012 - 11:34 am

    One thing, I could never pick a favorite, not on your blog, love most of what you do, I like the fact that all of what you do is so elegant looking and I love coming here and learning something new, especially if it is how to make a new kind of bow, or about a new product, you are always on the ball, and most of what you do is doable, not so way out there that us average folk can not even attempt it. You leave a very explicit list of what you use and most times where to get it, I am still waiting now almost two months to get that window die from Our Daily Bread they seem to be waiting for ever to get it from China.. Such is life I guess. But I knew right where to go to get it, from you.
    Anyway, i guess my favorite is elegant but also CAS at the same time, like you said, I can see the love and TIME you put into your cards, some of us don’t one have the supplies at hand, or the time, that you do, the stamps and or ribbons, being on disability, I am very limited to funds, but I make due. It is just so frustrating to want to be able to do what you do, but don’t have any of what you use or even close to it. So it is nice to see new stuff, but also to see stuff made with old dies and product is nice too, it seems we get new stuff and you all (Design team folk) are over making stuff with the stuff we just got, kind of like we get it and it is so old already, don’t know if you see what I am trying to say.
    So will stop at that.
    You are the BOMB, love your stuff and will see you almost every day in 2012 God willing, and God bless you! Good luck with the family research, I did it for over 40 years.

  • MehrllJanuary 4, 2012 - 11:35 am

    I love to view each card that you create. You are so talented and I really appreciate that your feelings come through in your work.

    First, I love your blog because you are obviously a child of the Lord. Second, the sheer elegance of your cards and other paper creations is breathtaking. Third, I’m interested in the latest in embellishments, stamps and dies (mostly embellishments) and how they are used. Fourth, your tutorials are easily understood and fairly short. I’m not on the computer much anymore due to severe soreness in my mouse using arm but I do have a handful of blogs I love to look at everyday and yours is one of beauty I look foward to seeing whenever you post.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, while I love ALL your cards, I especially like WRBF-2929 & 2741. I love the labels 20 spellbinders, and your cards enticed me to ask for that one for Christmas. Plus, you deviated from pink, and I liked that !

    Keep up the awesome cards !


  • sherisayJanuary 4, 2012 - 12:00 pm

    Thanx for putting up all this past year’s cards on your post. I think I have printed all of them as they came to be during the year. I use them for inspiration when I am blocked, and take parts of this one , and parts of that one, and come up with my own version of something very similar to yours. I follow a few blogs, but I have to put yours as my favorite. Your talent for design, color, execution, etc is remarkable. Please keep the cards coming.ReplyCancel

I just love love your work. I do love pink and my love is shabby vintage but I admire all your work. Your work especailly is an inspiration to me by your choice of spiritual words which is hard to find these days. So not only are they beautiful to look at but most important is the reflection they leave on one. Thank God for the gift He has given to you, you are blessing to us all.ReplyCancel

It is definitely inspiring and I blame you for all the money I have spent recently on Spellbinders :) Just kidding I fell in love with them a long time ago and found you through one of their hops since then I’m an avid follower.

  • CarolJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:28 pm

    Don’t know that I can pick a favorite – I do love the simply elegant cards you make. I also love your great tutorial videos (bows, ways to use punches, etc), your great layering techniques with spellbinders and intro to some stamps. I have on more than one occasion went into my local SB store and stated I needed to buy another spellbinder because I love the way Becca Feeken used the die – I just love the way you combine dies for either a card or to make a lid of a box – or give us a glimpse of using the negative of a die.

    My favorites I have used ideas from are (not necessarily the ones you listed on you current post):
    from your 7/10/11 post
    from your 2/11/11 post

    Thanks so much for all your wonderful inspirationReplyCancel

  • cindy ClickJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:29 pm

    Ok, I looked and went thru a second time. Each card is it’s own beautiful creation. I love the pinks- soft and shabby; blacks and gold- regal and elegant, blues- soft and soothing, reds- clean and bold. Each one inspires me and your tutorials are a huge help, since I learn visually. You have inspired me to create more cards for the ladies in my bible study. Each one looks forward to their own personal card I make for them. So you have inspired me to combine my talent and love for the Lord and give to others. So, my favorite is ……. the one that inspires me daily. Thanks for your gift.

    My very favourite is row 10 number 1. Very special for any occasion.
    I think you have omitted some of my favourites from 2011 but it is impossible to highlight them all.
    I made row 1 number 2 for an entry in my local show last year and won first prize. It took me for ever to try and find the paper you used and was unsuccessful so it didn’t look nearly as good as yours. The unusual way of making the bow was good too.I am adicted to spellbinders dies and everytime I see a new ones you have used I put them on my wish list.
    Thanks for all the inspiration.

  • AlisonJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:21 pm

    Becca, I love your CARDS and they always inspire me… each and every one.
    I have been paper crafting for about 18 months and have 5 superstars on my list of artists to go to for inspiration. You and Tim Holtz share the very top spot because your styles are so very different and yet both appeal to me. I suffered Becca withdrawal a few months back because you were making some changes and days went by without anything to feed my Becca addiction!! So you just edge ahead of Tim Holtz by a smidge in my estimation because I have never suffered from Tim Holtz withdrawal… Cards, cards, cards…. Love them to pieces!!ReplyCancel

  • Sabrina RJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:32 pm

    Becca, that is so like you to want to include our wants in your designs. But, I can’t pick any one; all I can say is to just keep doing what you’re doing and create what you like to create, because that’s all I want. I’m often amazed at the seemingly overflowing fountain of ideas you have. You’re truly blessed with a creative gene. What I admire most about your designs is the use of Spellbinders and use of colours. So just keep making what you want, and I’ll bask in the enjoyment of your talent. I’m just so happy that you can share it with so many with blogging. Thank you. :)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Oohh.. this has been so hard. I only found your wonderful blog last year, but have been slowly catching up with all the archive posts (still looking even now). But to ask me to chose favourites from those you have posted today was so hard I changed my mind a few times. Anyway, I will try to show the ones that win even if only by a hair compared to any of the others.
    Row 5 Cards 1&3
    Row 6 N0.2
    Row 8 Cards 2&3
    Row 9 No.1

    I love the elegance and the absolute femininity of your cards. My favorites are the delicate pastels with floral prints and layers and layers of detailed Spellbinder cuts. I love the bows and lace…and, oh, the beaded pins, too.

    Best of all are the sweet scripture stamps you use! I am inspired as a crafter and blessed as a child of God when I visit your blog. Thank you so much for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • Anne ( Midlands UK)January 4, 2012 - 5:02 pm

    Hello Becca I could not choose. Your work is always so inspiring and though my cards are not as layered, elegant etc etc you have certainly influenced my style. I cannot remember now who directed me to your blog but thank goodness they did. Thankyou. May you have a Happy and Healthy 2012. Anne xReplyCancel

  • Peggy DollarJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:05 pm

    I am a true lover of most any card in pink!
    Sometimes your cards are too complicated (or have to many dies that I don’t own) but aspects of them inspire me. (AND OF COURSE it might
    inspire me to purchase the die :-)
    Row 1 # 2 & 3
    Row 2 # 1 & 2
    Row 3 #1
    Row 5 # 3
    Row 6 # 2 & 3
    Row 7 #1
    Row 8 #1
    Row 10 #1

    I always look forward to your blog and I believe you are one of the most talented card makers (and 3D projects) of anyone I know or see on line. Your tutorials ore the best. Clear and easy to follow and we all thank you for sharing your talent and idea’s.

    Happy New Year!!!!ReplyCancel

  • NancyJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:26 pm

    What a fan I am of your work! The fact that you do it to glorify the Lord has inspired me to use my own talents in the same way. Honestly, I have a hard time reading other card making blogs just because you knock it out of the park – every time.
    My favorite cards are the ones with the following features:
    a) Symmetrical design
    b) Two or three colors max – e.g. gold and white, black and beige, beige and white, pink and white etc…
    c) The ones with use of ribbons, few pearls and a sentiment – this is your trademark :)

    I like it simple as I think more is less. So my favorites are as folllows (from top row going down, and left to right):
    Row 1: card no 2
    Row 2: card no. 1
    Row 5: card 1 and 2
    Row 6: card 1 and 2
    Row 10: cards 1 and 3

    My all time favorites are a) the one you made for your husband’s anniversary/memorial (blue with wings, not shown above), and the crochet background card that you made for ODBD shown on your card.

    God bless!ReplyCancel

  • Jackie CoonJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:38 pm

    What a difficult job you gave us I couldn’t make up my mind which card I I preferred and for one reason or another they all appealed.
    The details in your cards just blow me away.
    Thank you for all the inspiration you give me JackieReplyCancel

  • Janet CastleJanuary 4, 2012 - 5:55 pm

    You know you are asking the impossible…each creation has it’s merits and you always seem to cover the wide spectrum of styles! Of the ones shown, I like top row, middle card the best…and that’s not to say I don’t like the others!!! LOL!!! You are designing from your heart – we can’t ask for more!!!
    Paper Hugs,

  • Cheryl StaufferJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:07 pm

    I could never chose a favorite as each card has many things about it that I like. I enjoy anything 3D, cards with ribbons, flowers, layers of diecuts…the list just goes on and on! Your creativity just amazes me and I really appreciate you sharing it with all of us. Another one of my crafting goals this year is to learn to work with Copic markers.ReplyCancel

  • Susan SJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:08 pm

    Becca, your cards are gorgeous, fussy. You are truly an artist. I love looking at them but the simple ones are my favorite – because I can copy them :D

  • KraftyauntJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:17 pm

    Becca, I think quite a few comments have already said it…. and in one word… it has to be ELEGANCE. It doesn’t matter the color combination or the theme. Your style just oozes out of every creation you share with us, be it a card or a 3D creation. I’m usually in awe with how you’ve used the Spellbinders products and even when I sit down and try to COPY one your cards for myself…it just never comes out the same!! It’s your special touch and your special heart that comes through your creations. I love everything you do and I can’t pick just one favorite. I appreciate the fact that you’ve taken the time to make some videos but I wish you could teach a class that I could attend in-person! It would be phenomenal.

    I sincerely wish you a fulfilling 2012 and I look forward to continuing reading your blog. Thank you so much.ReplyCancel

  • LynneZJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:20 pm

    Becca – As I look through your lovely creations I am in awe of how beautiful they all are. But, what keeps me coming back to your blog over and over is YOU!!

    All of them inspire me! I love that they all have beautifully tied bows. I think that is my favorite embellishment! Every one of your cards have an elegance about them…..I often find I try to pattern my cards after yours. Each day I can’t wait to come see what you have created for us!


  • JanetPJanuary 4, 2012 - 6:37 pm

    I stop by your blog daily just to see how you create and use spellbinders in such a totally unique way that I’ve not seen on any other blog. I think it would be great if you wrote a book of your tutorials on how you come up with such creative layering of these dies showing various combinations of layering and uses for them. I would buy it in a heartbeat!ReplyCancel

  • Lynn R.January 4, 2012 - 6:55 pm

  • Judy AJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:10 pm

    Your cards and other projects (boxes, ornaments, birdhouse, and house
    just to name a few) are elegant! I too, as many of your followers, love
    the way you use the Spellbinder dies in such unique ways. I also
    enjoy whenever you do a tutorial for us, as I am a visual learner also.
    As far as what interests me to stop by your blog daily, is to hear how you are doing, and see what you have created!! Thanks so much for your
    time and talent that you share with us.ReplyCancel

  • Sandra ltbJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:11 pm

  • Linda ClarkJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:20 pm

    Ohhh Becca, What a challenge you have give us. They are all beautiful and even though I find ones that I may like better than others, I truly enjoy looking at the various ways you use your stamps and your dies. It amazes me to see how differently you look at each new item. You come up with uses for each item that I would never thought of and I am always excited to see what “Goodie” you have for us each day. Your talents are endless!! I think I like plain and simple best, I especially like Item #4 and item #28. They are clean, elegant and somehow graceful looking. I have tried many of your techniques and your instructions are very easy to follow. I really appreciate that and need that. But you offer our tastebuds such a selection that one is not “The One”. Each item has a class of its own and I believe they are all on top. You talk of how your followers help you, well did you ever consider how you help many of us? Your inspiration, your talents, they are amazing. You certainly named you site the correct name. You are amazing. Hugs, LindaReplyCancel

  • Pat JandacekJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:24 pm

    I’m always enthralled by the way you build up layers of diecuts. I’ve yet to try this but appreciate how well it works for you….someday, I tell myself. : ) And your innovations with punches creating different frames, edges, etc. takes vision and your talents for that are much admired…and CASEd. I also love your loving spirit that comes through in what you say, do, and are. I also so enjoy reading your mail – responses on your blog – and understand why you have so many loyal followers and admirers since I am one of them.ReplyCancel

  • Darla WelchJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:31 pm

    I’m simply amazed by all of your cards, but I think what keeps me coming back is the love of God that reflect through them. You are a testimony through your craft. My very favorite has been brousing through your 30-day organizer and stamper sections. I can’t tell you how many fantastic helpful hints I got from that. I look forward to your updates and your inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • Susan L. GarvinJanuary 4, 2012 - 7:54 pm

    Dear Becca,
    Your website is the first one I go to every day! I love your cards and the main reason is that you are the best at using Spellbinder’s die, and I am addicted to Spellbinders dies! I live in Phoenix, the home of Spellbinders, and I have 242 Spellbinders die sets. Have a great time at CHA, I wish I could go, but I am only a cardmaker and scrapbooker addict, not a vendor.
    You are the best!!!!!!

You are a lovely lady and bless many with you rgift of crafting gorgeous, inspiring and sentimental card creations. God bless you sweet sister!!!ReplyCancel

  • Darlene PJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:18 pm

    Hi Becca – for me one of the reasons I come to your blog is I always find beauty here. If I’m having a bad day, or it’s raining and I want a little sunshine your designs provide that. Even on those days when you’re blogging and not feeling 100% the fact that you took the time to say hello to those of us out here in cyber space is encouraging.

    For my own crafting, you inspire me to try new things – to not be afraid to put a square in the middle of a circle, to not be afraid to put a bow on something for a man, or to make a flower out of some kind of paper that doesn’t exist in nature.

    Overall, this is just one of my most favorite crafting stops – if not my most favorite!ReplyCancel

  • Framces B.January 4, 2012 - 8:20 pm

    Becca, I think all of your creations are heart felt and most come with a direct insjpiration from God. The things they say always help me in some way or another, It inspires me to juist look at your creations. My prayer is that you will just keep on doing what you are doing. I know God has his hand on you and I know he is well pleased with you always trying to help inspire others. You are doing an excellent job and I appreciate all the time and work you put into your cards and blog. Thank you for sharing. Frances B.ReplyCancel

    My 2011 favorite is the pop-up birdcage card inside the coordinated box. The complexity, challenge, and engineering is over the top! God has blessed you with the artistry, vision, and the mastery to engineer the unbelievable! I praise God for His amazing works through your creations!

  • MaryJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:50 pm

    Yours is the one blog I visit every day. I especially like the cards on which you use a die or punch in an unexpected way…either cutting, folding or layering. Even if I don’t have that die or punch, your cards inspire me to look at the ones I have in a different way.ReplyCancel

    Becca… Every card or project you make is inspiring in one way or another! I check each day just to be amazed. I am partial to 3-D projects… things with gems and baubles more so than flowers… but your creations are so fabulous I overlook the flowers! So I am choosing the wonderful, creatively different bird cage… and I am partial to the boxes in image 25 and 30. Another feature i LOVE are the fabulous lace trims you use… oh how i would love to get my hands on those!!! Also love the layering .. especially with the fleur de lis spellbinders…images 3, 16 and 17. You have inspired me to acquire some that I didn’t think i would have used!

You come up with such wonderful, creative ideas and other uses with Spellbinders, punches, bows, etc. Your cards are all cards I would love to receive in the mail because they are not like any other blogs I read. By the way, your blog is number 1 on my list, and I love to look at your samples with my first cup of coffee in the morning.

    Becca, I truly love “all” of your creations. I tend to stick with “simple” because I’m not as imaginative and creative as I would like to be, but your cards give me hope that I can, at least, partially copy your designs. I have made cards with the “thank you” embossing folder several times now and have recd. “rave” reviews about them. I love the one you are showing here with the white embossed card and the red rhinestones and red bow on it. What a wonderful Valentine card it would make. Thank you for all the beauty you provide. God bless you. I wish you much happiness and good health in the new year.ReplyCancel

    LOVE your work and have been an admirer for quite some time now. My favorite thing that ALWAYS draws me to your work is a couple of things:
    1) the clean, sleekness of your designs
    2) the way you put such beautiful colors together and it flows
    3) the thing that drew me from the beginning, and continues to do so, is the lacy things you create out of mere paper.
    Thanks so much for always inspiring and always giving me a treat for my eyes!!!

  • Mary RobersonJanuary 4, 2012 - 11:39 pm

    Its not so much a style of card as it is YOUR style–elegant, classic, romantic, very professional looking. I think its your attention to detail that always catches my eye–whatever card style you choose (square, oblong, tall, short, etc).

    I prefer traditional shaped cards, I suppose, I think just because thats all
    I’ve really ever seen. Although, I have to say your square cards and tall cards are lovely.ReplyCancel

  • Sharon MooreJanuary 4, 2012 - 11:58 pm

    As everyone else has said, your cards are elegant and beautiful! I love looking at all of them. My #1 favorite is # 28!!!! I also picked out
    And #20 because I am really getting into the stick pins. After looking back at each one of these I think I choose them because they are more simple, (still elegant) but since I can’t buy “everything” you use…with these I can more than likely substitute something I have on hand. I don’t want to “copy” so these inspire me to do my own thing with the ideas you have given me. Your tutorials and Becca Bits are wonderful! Thanks for all of your inspiration!ReplyCancel

    I have been following your blog almost since Day 1 and I can truly say that all your cards have been inspirational. I love what you do with Spellbinders, your mix of color, layering of papers and embellishments, use of sentiments, and the list goes on. Rarely do I make a card that you have not inspired in some way. I love receiving your e-mails and look forward to them. I also very much enjoy your tutorial and videos.

    My comments are similar to everyone else’s: whatever you put your hands on, that’s my favorite card. Seriously. There is very little that you do that isn’t my favorite.
    If you held a gun to my head and made me decide, I would pick #3. I love the layers, I love the elegance, I love the swirls and flourishes.
    I admit you are a fabulous sales woman without even trying to be one. Many times I’ve seen what you do with your supplies and I go buy stuff so I can create from the inspiration of your work.

    Hi Becca,
    Its been a while since I have sent any comments, but love all your lovely cards, its hard to pick just one as all are so beautiful. I think the ones I like best is when you use different die cuts and pair them together, you seem to have a nack of knowing which ones work together, it sure makes me try some combinations too, love your bows, I still have to make myself a bow maker. Keep up the good work and look forward to more beautiful cards.
    All the best for the new year and health and happiness you sure deserve it.

    Becca, I just found your blog last week and have gone thru most of your posts. I appreciate your dedication to God and your love of discovering the creative nature God gifted you with. I love soooo many of your cards, but I love your bows and how you embellish them.ReplyCancel

    Just love your cards. Looking forward to the new year.ReplyCancel

  • Anne HartschlagJanuary 5, 2012 - 9:33 am

    I love the way you layer your cards with the different dies. You have inspired me to give it a try and I surprised myself with the results. I was in such a rut and after following your blog I was able to challenge myself to try something new. I also like the way you use the beautiful laces (is that plural in itself — like sheep?). I have some very old lace that I have been saving and now I am using it. No one is enjoying it when it is in a drawer so I am now using it. You are an inspiration to me!!!ReplyCancel

    You know, Becca, I don’t think you can make something that I would not love! I love the elegant cards you always create – they are always just awe inspiring to me! I love the shabby chic look – though I cannot seem to recreate it – I need a step by step tutorial I think. Very specific tutorial because I am dense at times :) I love your boxes and extra goodies too – love the pin cushion! I made one although it is not nearly as lovely as yours! I just found a plain frame and decided to try it and it was really easy with your instructions so I will be making more :) I am always excited to see your blog in my email box because I know I will see something gorgeous and inspirational! Thanks for sharing your creative talents with all of us!ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca, I can’t get enough of your cards. Sooooo beautiful and so full of warmth and meaning. May you be blessed to have many more creative years and making other people happy.ReplyCancel

  • lornamayJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:27 am

    Becca your outlays are always in the spectacular class – just look at your year’s display. The red/white card stood out for me in particular – a very classy little number. You have a creative gift with your use of colour and design which draws me to your blog as I’m always looking for ideas and different concepts.ReplyCancel

    Becca, its hard for me to just pick one card…….I loved and still love them all. Keep sharing your God giving talent with us…..we love your work!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Monika/buzsyJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:06 am

    Gorgeous creations Becca! It’s nice to see some of them all together on one page! o)ReplyCancel

    I love looking at all your cards as it inspires me. My favorites are ones that I can imagine making myself. So, please keep giving us the “recipes.”
    P.S. I also love pink! and purple! and turquoise! lolReplyCancel

  • Kathy RoneyJanuary 5, 2012 - 12:08 pm

    I can’t possibly pick out one particular thing I love about your creations! I honestly love them ALL! They’re all different, elegant, outside the box! I see a couple here that I somehow missed, YIKES! I’m so glad you posted them all here! I’m lucky to have one good creation once in a while, but all of yours are amazing! Thanks for sharing your talents, Becca! Blessings! KathyReplyCancel

  • FMJanuary 5, 2012 - 3:17 pm

    It is very difficult to pick out my favorite projects. I am fascinated by the 3-D projects, boxes, bows etc. I appreciate the “recipes” that you give also. Your cards are so unique that I am inspired by all of them!ReplyCancel

  • DeniceJanuary 5, 2012 - 3:33 pm

    They are all so beautiful, but if I had to say …..then I tend to be partial to the 3D cards more. The more depth, the better I like. Also the color has to flow easily on the eye. You do an excellent job either way. God bless… DeniceReplyCancel

  • janeyJanuary 5, 2012 - 8:09 pm

    Becca – you had me as a devoted fan two years ago – goodness!! I’ve loved how you add dies on top of dies and how you use color to enhance the stamp messaage. I can usually pick your cards from pictures of many, just because your style is just YOU….Others may try to ‘case’ your cards, however, your style does deeper than that – and we are all so grateful that you share with us.

    Don’t change or offer less than what you want to give.


  • MichelleJanuary 5, 2012 - 8:20 pm

    Becca, you are so creative and your work is so beautiful. God gave you a gift and I am so blessed that you are sharing with others. I am even more blessed that I found your site and, I look forward to your e-mails ever since. I have opened every one of your e-mails with anticipation as to the suprise and wonderful magnifigance that awaites me when your page opens up. Thank you so much for sharing yourself and your beautiful talent with me. With warm loving thoughts for a Happy New Year, thank you.ReplyCancel

  • MichelleJanuary 5, 2012 - 8:27 pm

    Now for what I really meant to share. How cruel of you to ask me to choose my favorite card. For two days now I keep looking the past year of Becca creations over and over and I am starting to go goo goo gah gah and twirl my hair and my eyes are bulging and I am drueling. Please, please, don’t make me choose. I want one of every one, I can’t stand it any more, I want to be Becca crafty person just for one hour and be ableto create something so inspirational. Just once, could you give me some of that. LOLReplyCancel

  • DorisCJanuary 5, 2012 - 8:48 pm

    Hi Becca,
    Your creativity is what makes AmazingPaperGrace my daily stop. I love your ability to create so many different things is what makes you so unique. You inspire me.

    Keep doing what you’re doing.
    As always thanks for sharing.

    Happy New Year!ReplyCancel

  • GinnyJanuary 5, 2012 - 9:22 pm

    I think my favorite style (although I love looking at all of them) is what I would describe as classy shabby chic. Much as I enjoy looking at all of your cards, I especially enjoy when you design and then do tutorials on how to make ornaments, boxes, etc. Thanks so much for sharing all of your talents with us. Yours is the only blog that I make sure I never miss a post.ReplyCancel

  • BettyJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:21 pm

    I always love to see the creative ways you use Spellbinder dies, and how you embellish your cards. Your cards and projects are like beautiful pieces of art. Thank you for sharing all you do with us. : )ReplyCancel

  • Stella DJanuary 6, 2012 - 12:36 am

    Your pieces are very rich with elegance, feminine, and very professional. I love how you layer and use bows and bling. All these things keep peeking back to see what you’ve come up with. Please don’t stop.ReplyCancel

  • ArahJanuary 6, 2012 - 8:43 am

    Thank you for your beautiful blog and your cards. I only get to craft a little each year, but I love your blog coming to me. It inspires me and gives me hope that my life will open up a window for me to have some time to craft. Your work is so beautiful and also looks like fun. Thanks for caring and doing this. Happy New Year and lots of love to you and yours!ReplyCancel

  • KimJanuary 6, 2012 - 10:13 am

    I just recently found your blog. I always wanted to create elegant cards, but could never get it to work right. Now I know how because of your creations. You inspire me in so many ways (creativity, faith, etc). I love all of your creations and really can’t pick one as I love them all. My dream is to one day get to go to CHA as well as a few other things.ReplyCancel

  • VickieLHJanuary 6, 2012 - 5:42 pm

    Dear Becca, I’ve been following your art and your blog for over 3 years now, and although I don’t create the elegance you have mastered, I’ve learned a lot from you. I’ve studied your cards and your techniques, and have translated all this to my own style. You have helped me to grow in my art, most notably to enable me to recognize some key components to a successful card: color, design balance, dimension, texture, emotion, and last but not least, bling! Now I can usually assess my cards as I create and recognize what works and what doesn’t. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity in sharing your arts with us. I know these past years haven’t been easy for you, but still you’ve been a faithful blogger and artist. I’ve followed your growth and your setbacks, which often have correlated my own, and I’ve gained strength and courage from your words and your stick-to-it-ivity. :) I wish you many more years of successful and fulfilling art, and send you hugs. ?ReplyCancel

  • Kristine VencelJanuary 6, 2012 - 10:07 pm

    Oh Becca! There’s no way to possibly choose 1 card as a favorite! At least not for me. Each beautiful card is a masterpiece all on its own, created with love by the artist. I adore looking at your designs. They totally inspire me to create cards along the same lines, though not near to the level you are at.

    Thank you so much for sharing your creations. I look forward to your new designs of any type this year. I know they will be fabulous!ReplyCancel

  • VikiJanuary 7, 2012 - 2:13 am

    All your work is stunning, but I must say that I am a pop-up freak and that pop-up house has my heart. I don’t remember seeing that before. Your layering on your cards is always impeckable and your bows are to die for.ReplyCancel

  • Pamela AignerJanuary 7, 2012 - 11:03 am

    I just love looking at your beautiful cards! They are inspiring and so elegant. Does it take a long time to create these masterpieces? Do you actually send them to people? (I’m just wondering who would be the truly lucky person to receive one!)ReplyCancel

  • NyokaJanuary 7, 2012 - 7:12 pm

    Becca, what first drew me to your blog was happening upon your name through another blog and since my screen name for mostly all my stuff on the net is ” AmzdByHsGrace” the name drew me. I am so glad it did! Your cards are just SO ‘amazing’ and all your tutorials are ‘amazingly’ easy to understand and I so often get ‘amazing’ ideas from your cards and the ‘ amazing’ list goes on and on!! LOL… So I check out your blog each morning after reading my devotionals… Your beautiful cards are a joy to view..
    May God bless!ReplyCancel

  • Pat SJanuary 8, 2012 - 10:44 pm

    Becca, I love all your cards. Your creativity is awesome and I look forward to opening the emails annoucing your new creations in card making. Your layering, out of the box use of dies/templates/punches keeps me coming back. Please don’t stop. Your emotions and joy in creating shine through with each of your designs. You are and always will be one of my favority go to designers!ReplyCancel
