Day of Giving Friday: Just Living is Not Enough

Happy Holidays!  I’m peeking in just in time for the last Day of Giving Friday of 2016.  Shhh….I have a house full of company and have stolen away a couple of times today to get this finished up and online.  It’s been an amazing holiday and although it wasn’t planned, I was able to see all three of my kids.  My two daughters came home and decided they couldn’t bear not to see their brother (who could not get time off) so we piled in the car and drove across the state to spend Christmas with him.   It was impulsive but well worth it, even though it was for one day.   What a blessing :-)

It has been a whirlwind since November – isn’t that the way it is for everyone?  Today I’m sharing a card made with the Graceful Frame Maker and one of my new borders.  I’ve received lots of question and this is the best place to share some updates for people who are looking for these dies.  Currently, the collections are available at Create and Craft USA and Create and Craft UK – some of the dies are sold out but pop over to the respective sites and you’ll be able to see what’s still available.  If you want to get your hands on to these sets, Create and Craft has the best current availability.

The dies will be shown at CHA in January so definitely encourage your local store to pick them up; they should be available in the Spellbinders Online Store in March 2017 and if you were unable to get the Graceful Frame Maker in the US or see any of the others that have sold out,  you can put them on your wishlist  in the Spellbinders store right now.

My card today has been on my workbench waiting for a bow for several weeks – I was playing around and decided to layer two mitered borders onto one card using Spellbinders Graceful Fans Border and it was cut using the Spellbinders Graceful 6 x 6 Frame Maker.  The way the dies are configured, it’s easy to cut the four borders where each fan center is cut then follow up by cutting the outline shape to put behind the fans for a punch of color.   I’m using a lovely Quietfire Design sentiment (Just Living Is Not Enough) that works wonderfully in a square frame!

      P. S.
      I forgot to answer the question, I was so happy to see your post. I would like to ditch all the clutter in my craft room and my whole house actually and make my life more committed to myself and less to other projects I get involved in. I had 4 cards I needed to make this week and didn’t get them done because of another committment to another project!ReplyCancel

    Happy New Year Becca! In 2017 I want to ditch wood blocks (removing red rubber and creating foam mount stamps). I plan to use a gift card from a sweet friend to pick up a new Perfect Stamping tool (half the price of a MISTI and works terrific). Love it! I also want to buy several new Spellbinders dies – especially your designs.ReplyCancel

  • CaroleDecember 30, 2016 - 7:37 pm

    I want to ditch my concern over what other people say about me and pick up on only good feelings for others. I’ve lost several good friends these last few months of 2016. I need to rid myself of negative feelings and look for the good. Life is short and we have no knowledge of when it may suddenly be taken from us.ReplyCancel

    Absolutely stunning, nothing beats a white card with gold, simply exquisite!
    Glad you had time with your kids, it’s great having them home, had two from GA and one from LA and I take him to airport at 6am tomorrow, the other boy and the grandsons live an hour away. Oldest grandson will

  • ConniecrafterDecember 30, 2016 - 7:54 pm

    Oh Becca what a wonderful day you must have had with all your offspring together – it does a mother’s soul good to have that happen.
    Love your exquisite card so beautifully executed!!

    I would love to ditch some excess weight in 2017, and the cancer that is invading my family, near and far! What to pick up – grace and strength in the Lord.

  • Chelsea JohnsonDecember 30, 2016 - 7:59 pm

    How delightful that you got to be with all three of your children during the holiday season. What a blessing.
    Thanks for taking the time to share this lovely card. It is gorgeous, and I can’t wait to get my hands on these new designs.
    As for what to ditch and what to pick up in the new year….Whew….I have so much going on right now I can’t even answer that. I do pray, however, that God will be glorified in my life in every way in 2017.ReplyCancel

    Becca so happy that you got to see all of your kids at Christmas and the spontaneity of it makes it even more fun. Another gorgeous card, but then all of yours are. Like most of your other commenters I’d love to cut back on outside commitments, get rid of negativity and clutter. I’d like to keep good friends and make more. I’d like to find more card makers, too!

    Gorgeous card. I just love your new dies and have tried watching for them to come back at Create and Craft. I always look forward to Friday’s just to see what you have created. I AM going to ditch negative people and surround myself with positive people. Life is much too short to have negative people trying to bring you down. Also, going to re-organize my craft room so I can find what I’m looking for. Must de-clutter my entire house. Have a blessed 2017 Becca.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Happy New Year!
    I am having so much fun playing with the new Graceful Borders dies and the Graceful Frame Maker. I had to smack myself on the forehead today when I saw your gorgeous card as I would never have thought of layering two ‘fancy’ border frames. It makes for such a lacy look.
    For 2017, I would love to ditch many pounds and would love to pick up more time to craft.ReplyCancel

  • Becky GreenDecember 30, 2016 - 8:48 pm

    WONDERFUL CREATION, BECCA! SO GORGEOUS!!! THANK YOU for the update on your mitered corner dies….! And the one thing I’d like to “ditch” would be, being undisciplined a times! LOL The thing I’d like to “pick up” would be of course, discipline! ;)ReplyCancel

  • Cathy UrichDecember 30, 2016 - 9:00 pm

    Beautiful card. I bought the set of borders and am so anxious to try them all out especially the frame maker. I love the double boarder on this card.

I don’t want to miss a single post on the new boarders.

    GORGEOUS card Becca!!!
    Would like to ditch crafting items I am not using so someone can give them new life – actually am doing that as I have sold the house and moving into an Independent Living Continuing Care area in a one-bedroom apartment – so lots of downsizing!!! I wish to be very cautious in what I add to my crafting in 2017…will have to knock me off my feet – LOL!
    Paper Hugs, and have a Blessed New Year Becca,

  • MarilynYDecember 31, 2016 - 1:11 am

    Here’s wishing you a healthy, adventure-filled, memorable new year. As new year’s resolutions goes, resolving to keep them is the hardest but never give up. At the top of my wish list of things to ditch is my excess body substance aka ‘fat’. lol. Seriously, it would be nice to shake a bit off so I don’t have to go into the ‘next’ size. College size I ain’t but “matured” body is acceptable. wishful thinking?ReplyCancel

  • TheresaDecember 31, 2016 - 1:19 am

    Happy New Year to you, Becca and all those who read this post. I trust 2017 will bring much love and blessing to all.

    What a beautiful card. I love the gold and white and also the sentiment. Life without flowers (or nature) would be so dull.

    In 2017 I really, really want to ditch the house I’m living in. I so want, need and look forward to picking up my bungalow – the retirement home I’ve should have moved to last year. Third choice and hoping that the old adage ‘third time lucky’ will apply – even though I don’t believe in luck.

    Happy New Year, All xReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, lovely card.
    I want to ditch the fear of jumping into starting my own little venture of selling my cards. I would like to pick up the joy that I’m feeling helping my daughter organise her wedding in August 2017, and really enjoy doing her Wedding Stationery.

    What a joy to open your e-mail today and see this card! I used the same dies yesterday to make a card for a good friend in the hospital. BUT the best part of our visit was me showing her your new dies that I bought the first day available on C&C, so although we could not craft together we passed your die back and forth planning our next craft day and just how many new and wonderful cards we will be making. Thank you Beccca for a wonderful visit with my Friend Sally!ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful card. I was able to get the collection from Create and craft and have yet to use them. I may attempt to make a card like this now. For 2017 I would like to “ditch” my laziness and “pick up” motivation and inspiration to start using my stash and create more cards. Hopefully some elegant ones like you make.ReplyCancel

    Another beautiful card! You have such a talent. I’m praying that 2017 will be a better year. I would like to lose feeling that my life no longer has purpose since losing my husband of 42 years. I’d like to gain a cure for my daughters pulmonary hypertension and my brothers cancer.ReplyCancel

  • Granny DDecember 31, 2016 - 12:37 pm

    This card is really beautiful Becca, so glad you were able to spend a few days with most of the kiddos, when they get older it is hard to all match up schedules but when you do, it is so much fun and love.

    I need to ditch my procrastination and learn to be a bit more impulsive. I need to pick up more classes on crafting.ReplyCancel

  • Joy MossDecember 31, 2016 - 1:03 pm

    Gorgeous card! it would make a stunning wedding card for someone. I would really love to see a video on the Graceful Frame Maker and how you put together this card. My mind can’t wrap around how to make the frame, even after looking at the die on the Spellbinders website.
    What to Ditch and What to Pick Up: I’d like to ditch housework and pick up a real job! Lol. Long story which I won’t bore you with. Needless to say, I’m ready to get a job again!ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card, I was just thinking what a special gift this card would be and then noticed you give them away. How sweet!

    Ditch: the concept that I “need that something else”
    Pick Up: better habit of using what I have already

    Your new card is exquisite – I love your extra little touches to each die – you have a unique way of presenting them. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into your work – I know appreciation is one of my motivators and definitely inspire me onward! I wish the same for you in 2017 – Have a great new year!

    Oh my! You make creating such a beautiful card look so easy! This is one gorgeous creation! I would so love to get rid of the clutter in my work space. I keep telling me once I finish up my granddaughter’s scrapbooks, I will give anything left away and concentrate solely on making cards. They may never be as beautiful as yours, but I do my best. Wishing you a happy, healthy New Years!! Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful card!!ReplyCancel

    Hello dear Becca! This new die frame creator die set is a must have! While it’s on preorder I want to try out the technique manually for non-square cards, but oh will that beautiful set be part of my collection!

    I’m stopping by as part of my anual tradition of visiting your virtual home to say Happy New Year! Also, to thank you for all the inspiration, ideas, tips, products, generosity and love you don’t mind to share with us throughout the year.

    My wish for you is that you keep winning in all you do :D More new beautiful releases, more time to create, blessings, love and health.

    Have an awesome 2017 dear Becca,

    Is it possible for them to make Graceful frame maker in an
    A 2 size? In our area that is the popular size. Very few 6×6.
    I hope they can do it. I bet it would be very popular.

    Let me know please.

    I feel like my entire home needs a major reorganization and deep cleaning. I’ve been in a wheelchair for 2 years now so there are many things around the house that are difficult or not possible for me to do. Fifteen months ago, my husband developed a very serious heart problem which resulted in a specialized open heart surgery that required we travel out of state for. As a result, my wonderful hubby hasn’t been able to do the house hold duties he would normally do. I feel as if we are behind in everything and it really bothers me. I am praying for a much improved 2017 where we catch up.

    I love your new card and especially love your border dies. I am so glad I purchased them when they were on Create and Craft. Looking forward to creating with them at 2017!ReplyCancel
