Goodbye Dear Old Friend

Hi there blog friends!!  First of all thanks for your feedback on the event I want to put together.  I think some one has already coined it the No Challenge Challenge (ha -ha).  I’m working on some inspiration for this to see if I can make it fly and you all have given me some great ideas.  

 Not sure where the day went, but I spent mine putting an old dying computer to bed.  I’ve been working on an ailing laptop for months now and couldn’t find the time to transfer things.  I guess we never realize how much stuff we collect on our computers and how we just can’t do without them.  I’m almost done with getting the email all transferred over and have to find a couple of CD’s but just to give you an idea – the desktop I’m moving from I purchased in 2003 and the laptop (whose screen died) I got in 2006.  It’s a little bit like letting go of your blankey – I know where everything is and this means I’ll have to say goodbye forever to Windows XP.   I don’t think I’ve been more frugal with anything in my life.  I have fixed and fixed until they can’t be fixed any more.  On the bright side – no more waiting 5 minutes for each picture to come up so that I could edit it in Photoshop.   That’s just a little window into my day – hope yours was fabulous.

. . . . about the Blog Candy
I did take time to package up the winnings for the last blog candy winners so that it can fly out of here on Monday.  So, it only seemed right to keep on with the the quest to share out this paper to someone who can and will use it!  I’m giving away another set of both Prima Romantique and Prima Printery.  Leave a comment letting me know what made it to the top of your new CHA releases list (no links please).  Was it the new Spellbinders?  Which one?  The comments open today and will close some time on Thursday , February 9th – that gives you up to six times enable someone (mischievous grin).

Thanks for stopping by today!  Ill be back tomorrow, I’m sure.  Crafty smooches!!

    Definitely the new Spellbinders made it onto my list – I have several pre-ordered from one of my fave Canadian suppliers!ReplyCancel

    Thanks Becca….know what you mean on the computer. Sad to say we are a world of technology!ReplyCancel

  • Lindyloo, South Wales, UKFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:00 pm

    Hi Becca,
    Sounds like you have been a very busy girl today, I hope you get it sorted to your satisfaction asap. I have been sorting my bead boxes today which I thought would only be an couple of hours and it took all evening. You are right when you say, where did the day go?
    If I had to choose top spots for products I really want from the new CHA releases it would have to be 5 things sorry:- Spellbinders Moroccan & Persian Motifs/Accents and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers. I must be honest with you though Becca, I seem to fall in love with something new everytime I look at the new releases.
    Well have a good day today, whatever you are up to. I’m off to bed now as its 2am. Nite Nite. Hugs LindaReplyCancel

  • Nan GFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:06 pm

    I feel for your struggles with the computer, Becca. I am still fighting switching to a new one some fix and fix and refix the old tower. Wish list….oh my…finally decided on the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles ( from a very loong wish list) LOL thanks for another chance at those gorgeous papers!ReplyCancel

  • Rosie WaldtFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:09 pm

    Of course, anything Spellbinders would make me happy, just wish I could afford them all.ReplyCancel

  • Shelly SchmidtFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:10 pm

    OOhhh my laptop just decided not to turn on… are so right- they are like your right arm! I am using an older model that is sooooo slow……! I feel your pain- but hope your new computer will work wonders for you! I am loving the new Spellbinders dies- love the distress markers aka Tim Holtz, love the new Copic colors, love the Christy Tomilson line of she art stamps…..
    Just to name a few… if I could just win the lottery…..LOL Thanks for a chance to win!ReplyCancel

  • sandi pFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:11 pm

    I have a new computer … love it!! Tim Holtz’ new distress markers have perked my interest.ReplyCancel

  • Lovely LindaFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:15 pm

    Hi Becca – computers UGH – but we are lost without them! I think my favourite of the CHA new releases would have to be the Spellbinders Dies – I would be hard pressed to choose between the Persian Dies and the Ribbin Buckles – they are all divine!! Thank you for yet another opportunity to win some gorgeous goodies!! God bless you! {{{hugs}}}ReplyCancel

  • Linda MilroyFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:15 pm

    I totally love the new Spellbinders, I want the all but probably the first one I get is the Floral Ovals then the Ribbon Buckles, They are to die for and I am torn between them. Thanks so much for your inspiration, your creations are so very beautiful and they make me want to be more creative. Blessing, LindaReplyCancel

  • christiFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:15 pm

    oh, such an enabler you are. the trendy tapes caught my eye. wait til tomorrow so i can tell you more. til then bye …ReplyCancel

  • Carol LFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:16 pm

    My XP died a while ago, and I SO miss it! Win7 is too techy for me, and none of my XP software is compatible….sigh. Good luck with the change!
    I saw a cool little tool that cuts thin strips of paper with ease, and I’d love to have a closer look, as I love to make herringbone backgrounds with strips of paper! I’m also intrigued with the distress markers as well as the Spellbinders that fold over themselves! So many cool items, such a small wallet! LOLReplyCancel

  • Katherine LawsonFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:16 pm

    I know the feeling about the old computer. Everything is right where you need it, and it’s so familiar, but oh so slow. I still miss Windows XP.

    What was our favorite new release? That’s a hard one! There were so many. Was it some of the new Just Rite stamps?

    Or would I decide to say it’s between the Moroccan, Persian and Damask Motifs and Accents from Spellbinders???? I think I’ll choose the Spellbinders, but I could never decide which one of the three sets. I NEED them all!

    I guess I chose the Spellbinders because they are so versatile. I’ve got a lot of stamps, (and a lot of Spellbinders), but there is something about those lacy dies that I love!ReplyCancel

  • ColleenB.February 3, 2012 - 8:17 pm

    Thank you for offering this giveaway opportunity again.
    I would have to say the Spellbinders; but as for a favorite, I gotta say all of them cause I’m just starting out using the Spellbinders and only have 2 so they are All favorites

  • Candy MeyersFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:19 pm

    Hi Becca,
    I recently had to up date my computers…both of them, so I totally understand what you are going through. I did loose most of my stuff on the desk top as it seriously crashed and I wouldn’t pay to have info transferred But you know what, I lived without it. I have not taken to making hard copies of important stuff, and so I seem to be copying things all the time. I am enchanted with the new Spellbinder dies. Especially the Floral Burst. I love the look of folded back parts creating a two tone image. I have cut them in the past with an Xacto knife. Not fun, for sure. So I’m looking forward to that one, as well as some others.
    Thanks for all you do for us.
    Candy MeyersReplyCancel

  • VeronicaAFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:20 pm

    I fell in love with the two-toned Lindy Stamp Gang mists. The colors are beautiful and add so much depth to your projects.ReplyCancel

  • SuziFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:20 pm

    I always get so many crafty things for Christmas (I do my husband’s shopping for him!) that I always resolve not to get anything new for a long while. Then along comes CHA! I’m drooling over doily dies. I love all those little holes! :o)ReplyCancel

  • Lynne IngramFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:21 pm

    Becca: It ws the cut and tuck flowers from Spellbinders that will be until March to get my hands on…..oh which one to get first!!! They are all so wonderful. After I saw your wonderful flower with one of these dies, I knew I was hooked.ReplyCancel

  • Kim HFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:21 pm

    Oh you are so lucky to have skipped over Vista!!! I am still being tormented by it. I have one PC that still works with XP on it. I hope it lasts forever! lolReplyCancel

  • chrisdFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:22 pm

    The damask motif Spellbinders caught my eye along with Tim Holtz Distress markers. Thanks for the chance for the giveaway!ReplyCancel

  • KathyFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:23 pm

    Hi Becca. You will love your new computer once you get used to it. It is amazing how fast the new computers are.

    I have to say I thought the new Tim Holtz distress markers would be really, really nice. I saw a video of them being demonstrated and thought they were great. And of course, anything by Spellbinders (just wish they didn’t cost so much).

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some gorgeous paper. I really like the Prima Romantique paper, anything with roses on it.ReplyCancel

  • Clare DempseyFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:23 pm

    on the top of my CHA list is the EK Sucess new stamping tool. It looks like a cog and has a clear paddle so you can stamp a motif in a circular fashion. I am a bit of a gadget girl and would love a spell binder gadget. Thanks for the chance to win!ReplyCancel

  • PeggySFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:24 pm

    I am loving the new TH dies (fan, telephone and typewriter). They are just vintage goodness.

  • Glenda JFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:25 pm

    I love almost all the new Spellbinders but I am especially anxious to try out the new Tim Holtz Distress markers to see how they work and if they are better than my current markers. I don’t have many Copic’s since you need a lot of them and a commitment to learning how to use them properly. Thanks for all the beautiful cards and projects you share. You and your blog are awesome! GlendaJReplyCancel

  • Marge R. (mer)February 3, 2012 - 8:26 pm

    Without a doubt, SPELLBINDERS!!! You didn’t really have to ask, did you? I also hear from a friend who was lucky enough to go to CHA that there’s gorgeous Want2Scrap bling to go with the Decorative Dress Forms I won, so that’s atop my Wish List now!!!ReplyCancel

  • auntie em (emily)February 3, 2012 - 8:29 pm

    It won’t take long for you to get use to using the new machine and you will find it so much easier to not have to wait!
    Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two is so sweet and October Afternoon’s Woodland Park really looks like fun.
    Hope you have a great weekend! :)ReplyCancel

  • BetsyFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:32 pm

    I love many of the new Spellbinders ~ so beautiful! I also like the new Inkadinkadoo/EKSuccess stamping system that looks like gears ~ I saw it demonstrated on someone’s blog today ~ looks really neat for making designs with cling stamps.
    Thanks for the chance to win!ReplyCancel

  • Donna DFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:36 pm

    The best new release is Becca’s Bow Maker!!!! I am anxiously waiting for mine to arrive. I struggle with bows and am really looking forward to creating beautiful masterpieces…..ReplyCancel

  • LorettaFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:37 pm

    Hi Becca. One of my favorites are the Romantic Rectangles from Spellbinders. Thank you for the opportunity to win the gorgeous Prima Papers. You have been busy with the computer! Just think how nice it t will be once you get things transferred, up and running. The price of progress is quite time consuming. Good Luck.ReplyCancel

  • Vickie Doswell aka okienurseFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:38 pm

    top of my list is the new Tim Holtz and Sizzix eClipse paper cutter that cuts out his stamps. I am sure that other companies will be given the opportunity later so I will probably wait and save up my money to get it. My more short term has to be the Spellbinders flowers. I am going to try and make most of mine this year…gotta save up for the eclipse! VickieReplyCancel

  • Debbie EricksonFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:41 pm

    You named it, Becca. The Spellbinders “Wings of Hope” with the delicate butterfly you used in your last post is my absolute favorite. And, of course, this paper would be a delight to receive. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!
    My computer may be older than yours, but my RCG “resident computer genius” husband keeps it going somehow. He’s a gem in every way, and I tell him at least once every day — including special cards to say so.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara SwavelyFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:49 pm

    Spellbinders floral ovals, just gotta have em!!! Sorry to hear about your computer troubles but you will be so much happier in the long run. There’s nothing worse than waiting on a pokey computer! Been there, done that!ReplyCancel

  • DawnllFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:50 pm

    Funny how a familiar computer just works for us…lol
    I have added many of Tim Holtz products to my list-most of all dies. I also have my eye on a couple Spellbinders from the last hop/ReplyCancel

  • Donna RFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:50 pm

    The Spellbinders are definitely on my list. I love the spiral flowers but I would take any of them. I just drooled while you all were showing the peeks of what they could do! Have a wonderful weekend!ReplyCancel

  • MarieFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:50 pm

    Yeap you sure do miss your old computer and they say they run slow but I’m not sure my new one is as fast ha ha and Xp there was never a better system but they say we have to move with the times. Oh Becca I’m feeling for you. You feel like you have lost an old friend. Love the papers you are giving away hun thanks for the opputunity to win some of these gorgeous papers. Now for CHA top of my list was two sets of spellbinders just can’t make my mind up :O) Romantic Rectangles or the new Floral Ovals and I still have a long list from last years CHA ha ha Ah will we ever catch up :O)ReplyCancel

  • Robin BurgesonFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:54 pm

    You always have the neatest papers! Thanks for the chance to win. I’m not sure how fair it is to ask for my favorite new Spellbinders because I drool over them all! I really like the new cut-fold-tuck dies. I can see a lot of opportunity with those. Love that Morocan set you used on your card today.ReplyCancel

  • janeyFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:54 pm

    Spellbinders fold and tuck dies (Angle Approach, Carnival dream,Floral Burst, Round About; Spectaculas Spin) are right up there close to the top for me. Anytime I can make the card look like it has some depth, I’m all over that product.


  • Sue NelsonFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:55 pm

    Picking a favorite Spellbinder is like picking a favorite child! I guess my favs would be Floral Oval Nesties, Wings of Hope Butterflies, Layered Flowers Shapeabilities and the Persian Motifs and Accents … like I say, it’s hard to pick ONE favorite :)ReplyCancel

  • Deborah KindelFebruary 3, 2012 - 8:59 pm

    I love the Spellbinders Cut-Fold-Tuck die templates. I remember when we used to cut those designs by hand with an Xacto knife. Since we live near the shore, I also love the Just-Rite sea-inspired stamps to go with their medallion dies.ReplyCancel

  • SueFebruary 3, 2012 - 9:01 pm

    I think its that time of your to purge. I have been tossing things that need to be tossed and packing up some things to donate. I really like windows 7 but you need to get used to it.

  • MarianFebruary 3, 2012 - 9:07 pm

    It’s Spellbinders for me! I just love them and the new products are just spectacular. A hard decision, but the top of my list would be the Persian Accents followed by the Moroccan Accents. Also can’t wait to try the new Cut-Fold-Tuck dies. Hmmm will have to start putting some pennies aside.ReplyCancel

    ‘Cheery Lynn Design’ dies: several of their flourishes, a couple of the doily dies, definitely the corner die sets, and the three rose dies…when I save money the new alphabet die set!!! WHEW…they are soooooooooooooo pretty!!!

  • Sherry LowmasterFebruary 3, 2012 - 10:12 pm

    I would have to say spellbinders, maybe the Persian Motifs. can’t remember all the names, lol. thanks for a chance to win some beautiful paper. I know what you mean about the computer. I have a windows 7 and an XP. I use the XP very little, babying it along becasue it will run my picture it program and windows 7 won’t. Don’t know what I’ll do when it finally dies.ReplyCancel

  • DonnaFebruary 3, 2012 - 10:16 pm

    On my first wish List will be of course Spellbinders, they have got to be my all time favorite and MUST HAVES, a favorite, lets see, love all the new flowers, spectacular Burst, and all the others that you can open up and layer for a 3 d dimensional look, and Floral ovals and label 25, I love them all. Going to be a very big wish list!!!

    Sorry to hear about your computer, and know exactly how you feel, I lost mine to Hurricane power surcharge in September and I am still finding and remembering things I lost as I had not done a recent back up!!! I accumulated so much over the years, and the pictures I lost of my deceased Mom and brother in law, but lesson learned, I now have an external back up and am also going to get an UN interrupted power supply soon, so I have time or the computer does to shut down in these situations.

    Good luck with your new computer!! It will take time to get used to new OS, I am still figuring out windows 7, I Loved XP and was so used to it..

  • Trish AveryFebruary 3, 2012 - 10:18 pm

    Hi Becca, oh it is so hard when you have to change computers and your loyal always used items won’t work on the new one.I do know all about that. lol.
    I am making my gdaughters wedding invitations and having all sorts of problems cutting out the die. I have to run it through so many times to get it to cut, embossing is fine. it just doesn’t want to cut easily. So what would I like any hints on getting this die to cut. I only have to do 70 but so far its taken me a week to do 24.
    Hugs Trish.ReplyCancel

  • Cathie (Owen Sound)February 3, 2012 - 10:29 pm

    Greetings Becca,
    Sorry to hear about the “curse of the electronics” syndrome! It seems like my husband is always trying to trouble shoot one of our computers.
    As far as the new releases go, I cannot wait for Spellbinders Antique Frame and Accents. I had seen the frame a little while ago on a project and finally it will be available to purchase.
    I also am interested in the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear. I am intrigued with it’s potential.
    The third is the I-Magicut (the ribbon cut and seal system).
    Happy crafting to you!

  • Marcie SmithFebruary 3, 2012 - 10:32 pm

    You have my sympathy on transferring from one computer to another and having to change operating systems. Went thru that earlier in the year, and was totally out of commission for a few months. But it is nice to again be up and running. As for the CHA products that I just couldn’t live without. . . . . . . Spellbinders, Spellbinders, and more Spellbinders. Everything else has been sent to the back burner until next month. Tim Holtz has several new products that I want. Those are next along with the newest G 45 paper collections. How about you? What new stuff couldn’t you just live without? Please share.

  • Terry BeatyFebruary 3, 2012 - 10:33 pm

    I think Tim Holtz new Criuit cartidges rank right up there with some other CHA new things. The paper you have to share is beatiful. I had my name in the last draw for it, maybe I’ll be luckier this time.ReplyCancel

    I know you will not be missing your old computer longer than a week, maybe! New things/changes are always a little scary, but just wait!
    I think my favorite find has been Spellbinders – especially how you use them in your cards. And I agree with some other posts, the Wings of Hope have got to be the best collection of dies around! I hope to be able to afford them sooner rather than later.

  • Candy MillsFebruary 3, 2012 - 10:55 pm

    May of the new Spellbinders die made it to my list. Too many to mention! I just wish they weren’t so dear :o(

    The new Spellbinders dies have me drooling with desire. I wish I could collect them all – they cut so beautifully and add so much to our cardmaking. I always think there just can’t possibly be more designs in someone’s head and yet Spellbinders continues to offer innovative designs season after season, year after year.ReplyCancel

  • Linda B.February 3, 2012 - 10:57 pm

    Becca, so sorry to hear about your computer problems, but I know you will get a lot of good use from your new one.

    My favorite release are the Prima Trinkets. Birds, bike, branches = BEAUTIFUL!!

    I would love to win your giveaway of one the Prima lines of paper, as they are my favorite papers. Unfortunetly, no one sells it in my area, so I have to resort to buying it at stamp shows, or ordering online. Thank you for your kindness in everything you share with all of us.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I’m glad you’re getting a new computer. If this new one last as long as your old one, look at all the enjoyment you’ll get out of it. It will really save you time too. More time to create your beautiful projects, yeah! There are so many new things to wish for in paper crafting, Its hard to decide what to want first. I can’t wait to get some of the new spellbinders. The Persian and Damask motifs and accents are on my wish list. Pretty much anything you’ve shown us, and used so beautifully, is what I want! You are a master of the die!!

    I, like many before me, have to go with Spellbinders. I have a few I REALLY like – and when I say a few I actually mean a lot. The M-Bossibilities are currently out in front – Paisley design looks really good. I too had XP and was hoping it would last – then my computer got struck by lightening – so I had to get with the program – quite literally, and now I am starting to feel comfortable with it all again.ReplyCancel

  • RebeccaFebruary 3, 2012 - 11:18 pm

    I’m looking forward to the mini spiral blossoms.ReplyCancel

  • Mary SchmidtFebruary 3, 2012 - 11:20 pm

    Definitely, the spellbinders, and, some of the matching stamps are in my must haves. The nesties just seem so “naked” without the stamps. It takes them to the WOW factor! And, of course, the wallet says OW!
    If only, I could be good enough to be a designer and, maybe, get some of the products sent to me. I won’t hold my breath on that, cause, I could never be in league with their amazing projects. Where is a rich sugar daddy when I need him? LOL!ReplyCancel

  • MelitaFebruary 3, 2012 - 11:28 pm

    I think my favorite new product was the Becky Fleck Spellbinder’s dies.ReplyCancel

  • TerreFebruary 3, 2012 - 11:32 pm

    I’m thinking that those markers of Tim’s are the next must-have for me. You are so generous with your talents, time and now papers. Thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Charlene LeBelFebruary 3, 2012 - 11:32 pm

    Hi Becca, I love anything Spellbinders and I am chomping at the bit for the new Tim Holtz Markers.
    I wish I had a laptop, but I have a regular PC. I am not as proficient as I should be, but I think it’s “old age” creeping up on me. So glad you’re getting a new lap top.
    You are so Creative. I got a late in life start on Stamping and all the rest, so I am a few years behind. You are just wonderful and I look forward to seeing your new creations each day.
    Thanks for your talent.

  • ShirleyFebruary 3, 2012 - 11:45 pm

    Becca, I’m also dealing with an aging computer and having a difficult time buying a new one because I’m so concerned everything won’t transfer. It’s like losing an old friend. However, the problems and programs are becoming more frequent which means it’s time to take that BIG STEP and buy a new one. My favorite CHA items are definitely anything Spellbinders especially the Moroccan and Persian accents. Gorgeous. Thanks for the chance to win the paper. I’ll try one more time. Enjoy your week-end.

    Papers are gorgeous! I think besides your bow maker, my favorites are the Spellbinder dies. I love the Moroccan Accents and the cut and fold dies. I also like the Tim Holtz Distress Markers and, and…do we ever not like everything? LOL Thanks for all you share with us.ReplyCancel

  • Ellen - CardMonkeyFebruary 4, 2012 - 12:03 am

    DEFINITELY Spellbinders … I’ve pre-ordered the Crosses you showed on a sympathy card, I think it was. Beautiful, and I hope to get them in time for Easter cards.

    THANK YOU for sharing your loot with us. I’d DEFINITELY use it (when I give up on loving it first).


    P.S. I’m in line for a Becca Peg Bow Maker too!ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie WFebruary 4, 2012 - 12:15 am

    Definitely the spellbinders. I have several that are fighting for the privilege of “first purchase.” I’ve been trying to be on a no-craft buying trend to save for a bit but the new spellbinders may just be too much temptation. The new m’bossabilities (I think I have that name wrong) are currently at the top of the list.ReplyCancel

  • JoAnnFebruary 4, 2012 - 12:16 am

    I love so much from CHA it is hard to choose. I do know I have to have the spellbinders that fold back on theirselve. I also like the Tim Holt’s markers.There is so much I want but I to am going through the change with a laptop. I’m going to buy mine tomorrow. I made mine last as long as I could.

  • LalaFebruary 4, 2012 - 12:22 am

    Well there are so many items to choose from but I think it would have to be Tim’s Stamp 2 Cut, and of course the new Spellbinder Dies. All of this of course means that I’ll be looking for a part-time job. (Tee Hee) Good Luck with your new computer. Change is good so “they” say!ReplyCancel

  • Anna.KFebruary 4, 2012 - 12:29 am

    Hi Becca, I know new computers are hard to get use to, but after you adjust to it you will get things done a lot quicker and easier,
    The spellbinders all look great, would love a few of them in my craft room,
    and theTim Holtz marker sound like they woud come in very handy too,
    have a great day.ReplyCancel

    there were so many yummy things released at CHA and I probably wont get to see 1/4 of them but I love the New Spellbinder dies especially the cut fold and tuck dies and the M-bossibilities – i could have so much fun with these and the new Prima press stamps look like fun especially for kidsReplyCancel

  • MaryannFebruary 4, 2012 - 1:33 am

    Hi Becca, I must admit, it´s totally impossible to choose just one favorit from CHA, but I can choose the brand, and that´s definitely Speelbinders, but there´s also soo many gorgeous papers comming out, and I´m sooooooooooo loving all beautioful papers too he he. If I just could make myself to cut in them, but some of those I have got, I really don´t dare to cut, if I can´t find them again LOL. here where I live, we don´t have acces to much of all these wonders you have over there, and it´s so expensive to have it mailed here, so I only use these for really special projects.SIGH.
    That´s also a reason, why I hope to be lucky enough to win some ofd these beauties some day LOL.
    Have a great week-end hun and hopefully no more computerproblems, which is a real pain. I´ve just had mine reformatted too, because it kept on making troubles all the time. Funny they can really drive us nuts some times, but we can´t live without them either ha ha ha. Hope yours is solved now.ReplyCancel

  • nadineFebruary 4, 2012 - 2:06 am

    So many lvoely things to choose, how can u just pick one? So i need a few.

    Yes you need a new pc as the speed is not there. New operating systems are a pain to learn but you wont look back.

    Good luck with itReplyCancel

  • HeatherFebruary 4, 2012 - 4:18 am

    Hi Becca – I too dread ‘leaving XP’!!! – but I’m sure you will manage to cope.
    MMMmmmm – CHA releases???? – well it has to be Spellbinders of course and I have Classic Edges earmarked…. but then I liked Persian Accents & Motifs and Antique frames etc…. and of course Tim Holtz distress marker pens might just end up in my craft room!!!! Have a happy day.

    I totally fell in love with the new Spellbinders Morrocan and Persian collections!! Swoon!!! And the new Tim Holtz dies!! More swooning! I just recently got into Art Journaling and Mixed Media, so the one thing that tops my list, is the Caran D’Ache Neocolor II Artist’s Crayon Sets!! Oh my!!ReplyCancel

  • GlendaFebruary 4, 2012 - 4:45 am

  • Jody HammondFebruary 4, 2012 - 4:55 am

    Yes, I think some of the new Spellbinders were so cute. Liked the dress form one. There were a couple of new dies from Tim Holtz that caught my eye as well so we’ll have to see who comes in first, lol!!! Good Luck with your new computer! I’m hunting a new car, man is that a job!

  • Ginny K.February 4, 2012 - 5:48 am

    Love the paper and the chance to win some of it! So many new items from the CHA event, what do you choose?? I did see some new markers that looked interesting, I always love the spellbinders items….I really should save up to get a few things! I have to budget my craft items very wisely so I usually only get something that I truly need and do not have already or a another way to do it. I have to be a thrifty crafter and I reuse and recycle lots of things, you would not belive some of the things that go into my craft projects, but I also feel it makes me more creative that way too! ~gin~ReplyCancel

Thanks for the chance to win the beautiful papers. Enjoy your blog very much.ReplyCancel

  • Caryn S.February 4, 2012 - 6:39 am

    Wow Becca now this is a challenge! There was so much to love from CHA this go round. Well, I think all of the spellbinders are fantastic, particularly the Moroccan and the Persian sets, the cut and fold dies and the tea set were just lovely. I also really am excited over the TH distress ink pens, how much fun could be had with those? Graphic 45’s new paper sets, Pink Paislee’s and Basic Grey’s also. The quilling tools, I’m really wanting to dip into that technique. Someone here mentioned ODB, I’ve never seen anything that they have released that I didn’t immediately fall in love with. There’s so much more that just isn’t coming to mind right now.

    And now I am drooling over the beautiful Prima kits that you have posted as blog candy!ReplyCancel

    Good grief, Becca. it isn’t even 9:30 on a Saturday morning and already you have over 120 comments! Well, not to be outdone, I will tell you that I’ve been waiting for those new Spellbinders dies. I have a limited income, so I try to pick something that appeals to me on many levels and can be used in many ways. Last year it was Ironworks Motifs & Accents, this year it is Moroccan Motifs & Accents. I was shocked to find it already on the shelf at my local Michael’s last night! I bought the Accents with my 40% off coupon and plan to go back today to get the Motifs with another coupon. Next week I will be back because they also had the Ironworks Accents which I haven’t been able to find all year… where do these things go? All in all, my Spellbinder’s dreams are coming true and winning your “candy” would just be the cherry on top of the banana split! Sugar-free, of course!ReplyCancel

I also have lots of butterfly stuff, and sometimes I feel that this is “immature” – I’m not sure where that comes from – except that butterflies were big when I was a teen a long time ago! The Spellbinder crosses are also exquisite and I don’t have any of those yet, so that should probably be my next purchase. Hugs to you!ReplyCancel

I know it isn’t a company that you design for…but oh my heavens! I also love Tim’s new pens, and some of his new little findings. This Prima paper…I’ve never had any…and no prima flowers either.

    I’m so sorry for your loss of XP. It was one of the best operating systems MS ever released. I was so sad when I lost my last desktop to a rootkit virus and it couldn’t be saved.

    I love the paper in the pictures you displayed this morning. I think I must have missed the day you posted them (either that or I’m terribly confused…wouldn’t be the first time). I’m getting over a horrible virus we’ve got going around here, and I was stuck in bed for a few days. (You snooze you lose? I was definitely snoozing….codeine cough syrup nearly puts me in a coma!)

    Anyway, best of luck with your next computer. Having worked in IT for 10 years, I can tell you, there’s a lot of luck involved when it comes to computers.

    All my best,

    the eclipse and TH Stamp to Cut combination but realistically it probably is only a “win the lottery” dream!
    My real and can really get (over time) would be the Spellbinders dies and I love the ribbon buckles and Moroccan/Persian Motifs, sorry I cannot say just one thing…hugs and thank you for asking!ReplyCancel

    It is always spellbinders – all of them. I could go broke getting them all so try to limit them to newly “different.” If I have one similar I slap my hands and don’t order them. But I would have to say for this time it is the tuck and fold dies.ReplyCancel

  • BrendaFebruary 4, 2012 - 1:04 pm

    Spellbinders… contest. Picking a favorite is just impossible. Love them all. I agree with the last comment about going broke buying them. I am at 211 and counting……I do love the new edgeabilities with the inserts. There are so many possibilities!!! And you just feed the passion….:) Your designs are always fantastic, imaginative, beautiful and inspiring!!!!!!ReplyCancel

    I hate having to get a new computer. I have to assume that you managed to buy another one, knowing that yours were ‘on the blink’ & you didn’t lose any of your valuable data with the ‘violent death’ of your PC. That one ain’t nice! There was always the odd thing that never got backed up….. Well, I am in the UK, so will have to wait a while longer for the Spellbinder’s release here. I have my eye on several of them. LOL. I need deeper pockets….LOLReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Sorry about your computer issues…we have all had them and they are the pits when we have to finally do something about it!!!

    Yes, moving to a new computer can be quite traumatic. As for enabling…Becca, shame on you! HA…you are one of my worst (or best) enablers. Just when I think I don’t really need or want a certain die or stamp, you use it in such a gorgeous creative way that it zooms right back onto the list. Of course I’ll have to live till I’m a hundred AND win the lottery to ever get to the end of the list, but it’s there! This last Spellbinders release I like the Persian sets. I’d love to help you out with finding a loving home for some of your extra Prima papers.

    A new computer is so exciting. I upgraded last fall and have Windows 7 now. I still have things on my XP that I have not brought over to my new one. The program I use for making tea bag tiles does not play with Windows 7, so I will keep my old computer just for that purpose. I do not want to learn a new way at this point.

    Think like most others I’d have to say anything by Spellbinders – have only just gotten into these and really can’t get enough of them, but can’t afford to buy any :(, But also watched the vid with Tim Holtz and fallen in love with his new distress markers as the concept is new to me in every sense, so lots there to learn about for playing with :).

    And finally any paper as I’m a paper addict LOL!

    On computer things – I’m a geek with them, absolutely love everything PC orientated & LOVE, LOVE Win 7. Streets ahead of XP (which I still have as a backup), & provides me with a very stable and fast system, plus has plenty of tweaks, gadgets & other things like the ability to have a fluid dynamic desktop appeal to my childish side lol :).

    I drooled over the die that you based today’s pink feminine Birthday card on…but my favorite was, of course, the largest one. It’s to big for the size card that I make most of the time! That was a problem with another of the die sets I liked. OWH prefers that most of their cards be A2 since that’s what fits the best in the boxes, and what they have envelopes for. Still lots of goodies from Spellbinders to drool over!

  • Terri SFebruary 6, 2012 - 8:53 pm

    I saw something JUST TODAY, it’s by INKADINKADO—I don’t remember the name of it, but it’s spiral and you add clear stamps to it & away you stamp!!!!!!! It can be used to do backgrounds & takes ANY clear stamps!!!!! It was SOOO cool & I believe had about 17 set of stamps you could get to go with it!!!!!! HOW FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)ReplyCancel

  • Jan SchultheisFebruary 7, 2012 - 10:24 am

    I love this beautiful card you did today, those shades go so well together and it is so rich looking. I just want to expand my spellbinder die collection, they are so useful with card making.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    Two CHA favorites have caught my eye this time around. One of them are the Prima products, I am in flower heaven, I can’t wait to get my hands on anything from this season.
    The second is everything Spellbinders, OMG…I don’t know where to start. My first purchase will be “Crosses Two”, Romantic Rectangle and Labels Twenty-five. I will also throw in M-Bossabilites.ReplyCancel

    I just saw some of the great new papers released at CHA on Moxie Fab World’s blog last night. SEI in particular had some beautiful ones with rich colours. There were a lot of collections with navy blue in them, and many floral and damask patterns. They were very striking!ReplyCancel

  • Terri SFebruary 7, 2012 - 5:10 pm

    After reading the comments about Tim’s new markers I had to check them out…oh WOW! Just amazing…and I have to have the White Picket Fence!!ReplyCancel

  • Brenda WhiteFebruary 7, 2012 - 5:21 pm

    At Christmas time I paid $4.95 for a JustRite catalog that disappointed me in that it had tons of product but not so many cards done by the DT which is what I enjoy most. So yesterday I got a 2012 Winter catalog in the mail FREE! This one is loaded with samples and is like looking at a SB catalog now that JR and SB have formed some kind of partnership. Lots to see.ReplyCancel

  • Monika/buzsyFebruary 7, 2012 - 7:05 pm

    I am seeing more and mor products from CHA. I saw this new Stamping Gear from Inkadinkado!. Looks very interesting! I am also loving the pretty papers from Echo Park, Teresa Collings. So many lovely prints and designs. Thanks for another fabulous give-away Becca.ReplyCancel

    Cut and fold spellbinders for me!
    Thanks for the chance to win.ReplyCancel

  • Tanja S.February 9, 2012 - 12:24 am

    I am adding another CHA fave Becca, a thing from EK success called a Stamping Gear by Inkadinkado that allows you to stamp repeated images in a circle or oval shape. A little like “spirograph” for stampers!ReplyCancel

  • MaryannFebruary 9, 2012 - 1:06 am

    Anotther day and another try here, hope you´ll have a wonderful week-end ahead Becca and thanks again so much for the chance to win these wonderful papers here.ReplyCancel

    Thank you again Becca for your generosity! I’ve been seeing these new background stamps from Hero Arts/Studio Calico… they look awesome! I also love the new spellbinders dies with sewing items (can’t remember the name of the set, even though I just saw it).ReplyCancel

  • Sally J.February 9, 2012 - 11:15 am

    I love, love, love all the new Spellbinders!!!! Thanks for the chance to win such beautiful paper.ReplyCancel

  • auntie em (emily)February 9, 2012 - 6:39 pm

    It must be exciting to go to CHA and see all the new stuff in person but I would be crying that I couldn’t bring it all home with me so it’s probably wise I can’t go. lol
    I am so fascinated with the cool tools in the videos taken at the show. The MS board looks amazing, the Inkadinkado stamp wheel and the papers and embellishments are awesome enough to make a person dizzy.ReplyCancel

  • DonnaFebruary 9, 2012 - 7:32 pm

  • DonnaFebruary 9, 2012 - 7:33 pm

    Something happened and I did not get to finish my post, I was saying that I just love the concept of the eclipse and all it can do, but do i want another machine? And the vote is still out.
    Still love all my spellbinders best.
    Love and hugs
