Happy New Year Blog Candy

Happy New Year friends!  How blessed we are to be on the brink of a new year of 2012.  Hard to believe, isn’t it?   I think we all step forward with the hope that we’ll make improvements in our life, with our faith, with our families and relationships and in our finances.  I do too and as I think about the days and weeks to come I’m so thankful for the hope that a new year brings.  To celebrate, I thought I would share some of my goodies with you.   I haven’t done this in a while so I’m excited to finally have some blog candy.  Starting today, you can leave one comment on this post every day until midnight on January 5th, on Friday, January 6th I’ll pick a winner.  In your comment share what your crafting goal is for the year – inquiring minds want to know!!  Share a different goal each day!

Thank you so much for your kind words throughout the year.  The readers here are my inspiration to craft every day.  I hope that the dies, sweet sentiment stamps and scripture that you see here inspire you in a positive and giving way.  Bless you all!

    Happy New Year Becca! Ever since I found your blog about six months ago I have to check it every day to see what you have come up with. You are one amazing person and so inspirational!
    One of my crafting goals is to master the Becca Bows!!! I have to go to the video every time I want to make a bow and pause and start it until I finally get it!!! I don’t know if it is that the mind is going (or already gone LOL) or it is just a long time in between bows but I can’t seem to remember what to do! I do hope 2012 is a much better year for you. God Bless you and thanks for sharing your wonderful talent with us.ReplyCancel

    My first crafting goal of 2012 is to learn to use my prize from 2011 — a Boss Kut Gazelle digital diecutting machine that arrived on December 22nd! I’m a lucky girl and I plan to make them proud of who was sooo lucky as to win their generous prize — with me luck!!! ;!)

    Happy 2012 everyone!!!ReplyCancel

  • Jeena HuntzingerJanuary 1, 2012 - 12:51 am

    You are the one who inspires me! My stamping friends and I have a weekly creative session and we never fail to discuss your creations in great detail, emulating your wonderful techniques and color combinations.

    That said, my main goal this year is to clean out and organize my craft room…which I have done! I finished today with the major upheaval, including lining cupboard backs (they showed the dry wall…ugh!) with vintage fabric that my dear mother-in-law had given me years ago. I have a dozen or more large boxes of crafting materials that I will be selling at a craft fair in February….my extras shall be someone else’s treasure, right? I am so excited to see my favorite space in the house turn into something that reflects my love of stamping and paper crafting.

    Thanks for this opportunity to share something with you as you have shared with me so many times.ReplyCancel

    Becca thanks for the chance at this wonderful candy. I just got the Grand Calibur & would love these dies & one can never have too many flowers. Those are gorgeous. One of my goals for this year is to finish more cards. I start so many of them but seem to get sidetracked easily & don’t get many posted. This year I plan to be more organized … Fingers crossed it will happen. Happy new year & I’m wishing the very best to you.
    Hugs, JanieReplyCancel

  • KathyJanuary 1, 2012 - 12:54 am

    Becca I wish you a Happy and Blessed New Year!!! Filled with life’s blog candy!!!!

    My crafting goals this year are many… One is to work on xmas cards all year so i can actually send more than a mere dozen handmade cards… my list contains approx 150 names… that small amount just didn’t work this year!!! Many a friend was disappointed… I did use a similar design to one of your cards with a Christmas tree on the front inside of a frame with ribbon on the sides… they were gorgeous!!!

    Happy New Year Becca… continued luck with your fantastic blog!


  • Caroline D.January 1, 2012 - 12:55 am

  • Harriet ClarkJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:04 am

    One crafting goal of mine for 2012 is to clear my stamping desk so I’ll have more than about a 8″ x 8″ space to actually stamp on!! Somehow all kinds of things end up on my desk, so I have little room to actually stamp!ReplyCancel

  • Maureen KJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:08 am

    In 2012 I vow to actually take the time to craft. In previous years I craft sporatically and regret it. I admit that at times I make excuses to not craft…. room is too messy, son needs me at his game, laundry/dishes/cleaning to do. In 2012 I WILL craft at least once a week. Needed to maintain my sanity.
    Thanks for this opportunity, Becca. Stay strong.

Now that baby #4 is 5 years old and still has no baby book, I am determined to get things caught up! I’m starting with the “current” stuff and working my way back!ReplyCancel

  • suezieJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:15 am

    After giving up teaching altogether, my hope is that I can just craft for the sheer pleasure of it and not have to meet deadlines or use particular products. I want to encourage and lift up others with my crafting plus I want to sit along side everyone else in classes to be encouraged and uplifted myself – to share that whole experience from a different prespective.ReplyCancel

    For my first Gold Ring ushering in the New Year with a Goal to revisit some of the gems and goodies I already have in my crafting stash; be re-inspired to use them by looking at them differently (as Becca makes us all do!!!!) using my new dies and stamps to bring it all to life as well as release some of those things that I have loved so much that I was reluctant to part with them.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy E.January 1, 2012 - 1:34 am

    Happy New Year!! Throughout the year I put little pieces of paper into a “Blessings Box” with things that I’m thankful for from time to time. It may be a sunset I see or a flower blooming, or it may be that I’m blessed to have such a wonderful family. And in 2011 especially I’ve been thankful that some health issues that have occurred turned out to be not as frightening as I first thought and I’m thankful for a wonderful doctor who is watching ‘it’ closely. Every New Year’s Eve at midnight I bring out the blessings box and read the notes I’ve written throughout the year. It’s a wonderful reminder of all the good that has happened in the past year. As far as crafting goes, my goal is to get back to doing what I love–scrapbooking the pictures of the times of our lives. My health scare has taught me to do it now and not put it off for we don’t know when we will be called home. Again, Happy New Year!!!ReplyCancel

  • Sue BraileyJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:36 am

    Happy New Year!! Wishing you a happy and healthy one!
    My number one goal has GOT to be cleaning up and organizing my craft space! So much stuff all over the place that I can’t craft at all!

  • cindy ClickJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:45 am

    Happy New Year. It’s time to re-arrange and organize the craft room and let go of some of the things I don’t need anymore. My goal is to create everyday, have gifts on hand way ahead of time, so I don’t have to panic and try to do one in 5 minutes. I also want to spend more time with my granddaughters showing them craft projects to make and to inspire them to paint out side of the box. I would like us to make gifts for nursing homes and children’s hospitals and let the girls go with me to give them out… I guess- Pay it forward” is the main goal in 2012.

  • Laura with Layers of ColorJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:46 am

    One of my craft goals this year is to make more cards. I buy a lot of crafting supplies and don’t use enough of them. So, my goal is to start making cards more often and more of them and use up a lot of my goodies. My husband built a nice crafting area for me a few months ago and I need to make better use of it. I don’t have a whole room for crafting so my space is tight, but I need to use it more since he worked so hard to build it for me.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara JayJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:52 am

    Happy New Year Becca!! I hope next year is smoother for you.
    My crafting goals are to expand my Copic coloring skills and try using sketches. I have never used a sketch.
    I also want to include time for my other hobby which is making Temari. Temari is a Japanese form of embroidery on a ball. For the past three years I have been a “Charlie One Note”. All I have done in crafting is make cards. This Christmas I made a Temari for my son that he wanted me to make for him. I forgot how relaxing stitching can be. Plus it doesn’t make a mess LOL
    I will continue to make cards, but in the coming year I want to be a little more diversified in my crafting. I would love to win your generous Blog Candy!! I have a new Grand Calibur . Happy New YearReplyCancel

  • GerryJanuary 1, 2012 - 1:54 am

    Happy New Year, Becca. I hope this year will find you in better health. My goal for January is to do more organizing in my craft room.

    Hi Becca, I am in Australia and an enormous fan of your beautiful work. I attend a card group each week and my friends all have a bow maker (courtesy of my hubbie) and only one of the 15 have mastered the bows. Most of them save their ribbons for me to tie their bows each week (at times up to 30 bows). They always have the excuse their bows don’t look as good as mine. We had an hour lesson one day to go step by step. I am known by my bows on my cards at the post office where I sell my craft. I have been told the comments are Robyn’s turn this month love the bows & butterflies. I wish you much love & happiness for 2012 and many wonderful blessings.

  • Marcie SmithJanuary 1, 2012 - 2:37 am

    Last year was all about organization and I have to say I really accomplished a lot. And though that is an on going task, this year will be all about productivity. I have so many projects planned and am sure all the new storage and organization I have worked so hard on this last year will make it easier to accomplish this years goals. My other goal is getting my blog up and running. I have been procrastinating in that area long enough. Since the granddaughters are almost two, hopefully they will allow Gramma out of their sit for a few minutes here and there to accomplish some of my goals. Of course, family will always come first, but even I need a break now and then. They are getting better about playing independantly and of course there is always nap time. Happy New Year and thanks for your generousity of super blog candy. You are simply the most thoughtful and generous person I know.

  • SueJanuary 1, 2012 - 2:37 am

    Happy New Year Becca! Your blog is truly inspiring. Each project constructed perfectly with layers of of beautiful papers and fabulous die cuts.

    Becca you never cease to amaze me in your ability to create. My goal for 2012 is to be patient with me. I am not doing that very well and have to be patient in my creating. Mydad was an animator for Disney in the 30’s and 40’s, etc. and I cannot never live up to his example. I admire you so.

    Hi Becca
    Here’s wishing you a happy new year and may it bring all that you wish for. As you were my inspiration to start my own blog, my crafting goal this year is to experiment and try new techniques and share them with the crafting community. As someone who suffers from Social Phobia, being part of a community has made such a difference in my life and I’d like you to know that you were part of this. Thank you for sharing your incredible talents. You truly are in inspiration.
    Best wishes for 2012

    Been checking your blog every day since I discovered it about a month ago; you do beautiful work!! My goal this year is to plan ahead a bit better so I’m not in a rush at the last minute (ie: start thinking Valentines now!) and to actually make fewer, higher quality cards. I sometimes get rushed, so I end up pasting together something that is less than stellar. And lastly, not get discouraged if my first attempt doesn’t come out right; I can try again!ReplyCancel

I want to plug in my new cricut and story maker and learn how to use them. I too want to have cards ready on time, and I want to get myself to a few conventions. You have been my inspiration in 2010. While I could not make it up to my stamp room, I could use my laptop an see your beautiful work. I so wanted to get back to my “paper” and play things!

    Happy New Year everyone and especially to you Becca. You are such a delight and your goals for the New Year are lofty and an inspiration to me.
    I want to congratulate Marge, who won a new cutting machine in December/. I hadn’t heard of this one, but I know she will have fun learning to use it.
    I want to continue on my road to enlightenment and continue to learn along the way. I strive to be a good person and look daily to my Creator, who sustains me in all things. For crafting goals, I too want to organize my craft room. I started in November and I’m making good progress. I think I need to start a blog of my own to give away some of my goodies, like you so generously do, Becca. I will be taking some things in to share with my calligraphy guild buddies and that will help. Thank you Becca for being willing to share your goodies with us, your lowly blog devotees. Hugs always and wishing everyone a most prosperous New Year. Don’t forget to eat your blackeyed peas today. I also found out yesterday that Collard Greens are another food that carries with it prosperity to all who partake of it on New Years Day. Go figure. Life is wonderful and always full of surprises. That’s what makes it fun to be alive.ReplyCancel

    my goals for this year is making as many things as I can because I love to give them away. when you give a hand made item the person feels special and then you feel special too. I may not remember to come back to post each day as some times I can’t remember where to go back to. But try it. Make something and walk up to a stranger and tell them you have a gift for them today. Watch the smile when they realize you really mean it. It is amazing and so much fun you can’t wait to go home and make more things to give. And it can be the smallest, easiest craft. But you gave it to them.ReplyCancel

    Such a busy season for so many of us. My craft room looked like an explosion went off! Yesterday I decided to start the “big cleaning project” and reorganizing. I can’t begin to thank you for the wonderful system you devised for ribbon storage. I work at Michaels and have shared that idea with so many customers who come back and say a sincere thank you. I give all the credit to you. My goal for 2012, to finish unfinished projects, cards that are half complete, etc. To clean up after I’m done for the evening (that’s a tall order in and of itself). And to realize at the end of the day that I have so many blessings in my life, and to be more grateful for them.ReplyCancel

Next, I would like to shop in my personal store first (don’t add if you don’t need). Lastly, I would like to become more productive – create more – share more!

    One of my goals for 2012 is definitely to be a lot better to color with markers and to practicve a lot more every week, so I can improve a lot.
    I´m always so inspired, when I see your lovely work, but I just can´t make anything look like yours with markers, and I really want that LOL.
    Thanks so much for all your wonderful inspiration in the old year, and I look really forward to see a lot more in the new year again.
    Have a wonderful year hun, and hopefully it´ll be everything, you´ve wished for it should be.ReplyCancel

    We are blessed. Some days are just harder than others. I still have an album to finish and in addition I would like to organize all my older photos and decide if they will be put into scrapbooks. Considering how many I have, this could be a full year’s effort. Happy New Year!ReplyCancel

  • Trisha B.January 1, 2012 - 12:08 pm

    My goal? Organize, organize, organize! After the autumn/Christmas craft fair season, my house looks like it didn’t survive an 8.0 earthquake, and I can’t find a thing without calling in the National Guard! So for now, it’s getting organized (my freezer just died and I’m going to turn it into a crafting closet. I has a huge basket area in the bottom…perfect for holding 12×12 paper, the door has the little holder areas which will hold almost anything bottle shaped, and the racks will be good for stamps and such. AND, it has a light inside.) I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    Happy New Year and God bless!ReplyCancel

    Happy New Year to one of the most creative ladies I know. You deserve a wonderful and healthy 2012!! My crafting goal is to clean out my crafting room of unused items and take them to places where others can use them. I have so many craft items that I forget where they are. So organization is another key goal. It’s so darn easy to get caught up in the “newest” products on the market, especially with CHA coming in January. I’m hoping to slow down on my buying and use what I have which is enough to las an eternity! Happy New Year everyone. Thanks Becca for you continued inspiration.

  • JukieJanuary 1, 2012 - 12:43 pm

    My crafting goal for 2012 is to actually craft, 2011 was a very lean year for me for crafting, only doing the bare minimum, most due to time constraints but I also think my mojo took a sabbatical. I am not going to force it but I find if I put a little bit of pressure on myself that once I get started I really enjoy it.

    And I have a whole lot of supplies that need to be used! :)

    Becca – I just wanted to say thank you for your inspiration, on a personal level your strength has been something to behold, and on a crafting level your cards are truly mind blowing! And I hope that 2012 brings you peace and happiness.ReplyCancel

I wish for God to grant his love and for people to finally believe that he does exist and learn to believe in him and live with his laws and his beliefs. Knowing that, my life would be fulfilled and I would be happy and would not have any problems and could just make beautiful cards…

I’m on a brand new design team for Mosaic Moments and it would be good for both me and the company if I can get one of my pages published. I’ve been fortunate to have a couple of cards published, but never scrapbook pages, and I don’t see nearly enough mosiac scrapping published! I also want to participate in more challenges. I look at them, and comment, and have the best of intentions, but often never get the cards made! Wouldn’t it be nice to make a Christmas card a week, and have 50 cards ready by Christmas? I’m also thinking of participating in Project 365 this year.ReplyCancel

    My first goal is to learn to make better use of my rubber stamps. Because I am not good at adding the colour to fill in the stamped outline, I tend to not do much stamping. I have water colour pencils and a big set of chalks but am not confident to use them too much.
    Love to know what the pink flowers are in the front of the picture above. Have you made them with ribbon or a die or are they a shop purchase?

    Oh Becca, how generous and how beautiful this selection of candy. I do understand that being from Wales in the UK I’m probably not eligible, but I would still like to share my crafting goals with you, if I may. You share your life and creations with us, unselfishly, everyday and I can’t wait each day to see what you have for us, even if it sometimes is very early hours of the morning (UK time).
    My first share is simply ‘peace’. No not world peace, I know that is impossible and nothing to do with crafting. I would like to find some inner peace this year, enough so I can find my creativity again. I have not been able to make a card for almost 3months and I miss it. But I am positive today; I am going to beat it and I will let you know how it goes.
    I pray 2012 is a year filled with good things and good health for you Becca.

    Hi Becca,

    Hope this year will bring you love, happiness and blessings! Thanks for the opportunity to win this candy! One of my goals for this year is to start making cards combining different dies like you do. Your cards always blow me away!
    How about a tutorial? That would be awesome! Happy New Year! Take Care

    Happy New Year! And thanks once again for a chance at some wonderful candy. My main crafting goal this year is to make for time for my creative outlets. I just spent the past 4 1/2 years having to travel several days every week for work. That and aging parental care really stripped me of my creative time and energy. I was able to get some crafting in as long as I could get organized and plan in advance what I needed to take with me. But a new work assignment means I get to come home every night and play in my work room instead of wiling hours away in a hotel room. Have already started to dig in and can’t wait to get some things accomplished! May your year only improve with each and every day.ReplyCancel

  • Germayne Turner NashJanuary 1, 2012 - 5:35 pm


    I’m always looking forward to see what you have for us every day. You never disappoint!

    I’m hoping during this new year to spend more time crafting cards and scrapbooks for the many pictures I’ve accumulated over the years.

    Happy new year!ReplyCancel

    My first goal is to spend more time on me and my family. My job tends to take over my life, and my goal this year is to not let that happen. While I’m on call 24/7, I’m going to try to leave the rest behind when I leave the office and unless it comes to me, I’m not going to it. Much less stress, and I’m sure a happier me!ReplyCancel

    For my second Gold Ring ushering in the New Year with a Goal to spend more crafting time with my Grandchildren encouraging them to think and believe that making small mistakes on projects is just a crafty opportunity to do it differently (self-lesson also needed here!!!); that perfection is not always the real goal!!!

    My first goal was better organization… Secondly I would like to be more decisive… make a decision and go with it. Sometimes (most of the time) I agonize over every thing from size to paper to sentiment… on and on and on. Once I settle on something I usaully enjoy the rest of the process, but sometimes it takes so long to get to that point, that my limited time to craft is used up and I get nowhere. Decisive… my word for the day and the year!ReplyCancel

    Happy New Year to you Grace and to All… it’s going to be a great year for everyone!

    Grace, it’s wonderful to see you posting again and spreading cheer.

    I have a question about how you work, or think. I”m wondering do you see a stamp, or a spellbinder die and then “think” of the layout. OR do you have pieces already cut out and you sit and match things up?

    Personaly, with stamps, I see the vision then find my stamps to match it, but when working with dies -any brand- it’s harder on me to ‘see’ the finished project as in the process there are many twists and turns.

    That is how I came to ask you how you work.

    Again, Happy New Year. So glad you’re doing well.


  • Karen KnegtenJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:43 am

    One of this year’s goals it to get ALL my stuff organized; I mean find everything and start using it. Another goal is to find the Cutter from Martha Stewart’s Circle cutter board that the twins must have played when they were here for Thanksgiving. I have looked everywhere and it is such a small thing, but I am lost without it. I’m just hoping it did not get flushed. They are not quite 3 yet and have no idea what I am talking about when I try to ask them. Any clues?ReplyCancel

  • Marlene IacuzziJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:49 am

    I hope in 2012 I can grow enough to rely more on my own creative ideas and less on the internet. That withstanding, Becca, you are always my inspiration–the reason I buy from the companies who use your talents.ReplyCancel

  • KathieJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:50 am

    My second crafting goal is to break out of the box. My cards are so recognizable. I want to change it up. You are a great influence on that.ReplyCancel

  • Joanie GJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:50 am

    Wanting to get healthy and organized, I want to start making cards for those who have been forgotten and might not have any family left ie. nursing home patients.


  • Becky GreenJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:55 am

    ANOTHER Crafting goal—-for me, would be to get on another forum & make some friends & be inspired & be an inspiration! Funny how people can make you inspired isn’t it? :)ReplyCancel

  • Julie MJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:55 am

    I check in on your projects frequently and it tends to get me in trouble…..I see things I just have to have. I am a collector of things and now I just need to start making all the great projects I now have the stuff to make them. Thanks for all the ideas!!!

  • Sandy MJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:57 am

    One of the crafting goals I have is to use up some of the many, many things I buy that then sit until forgotten. I buy things at conventions and by the time I get around to them months or years later I’ve forgotten how to use them.ReplyCancel

  • janeyJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:58 am

    Happy Jan. 2nd, Becca! Just looked at your Wings of the Butterfly card – so pretty.

    Another crafting goal is to finish two sewing projects I’ve carried over from two years ago…..no fear ….just do it. Now that I’ve “said” it out loud, I feel obligated to follow through.

    Thanks, Becca!

    Becca, Idon’t know how you come up with such beautiful cards.

    My Craft goal is to try to clean my craft room so I can find my stuff & discover what I have that I forgot about.ReplyCancel

  • Leigh McKeeJanuary 2, 2012 - 8:20 am

    Unfortunately, I don’t get a lot of time to craft. My space isn’t dedicated so once I get everything out and save time to clean up, my crafting time is minimal. I did get time in December to get my Christmas cards done, though. My goal this year would be to convince my DH to let me make a spare bedroom into my office/craft room. Then, I could just close the door and craft anytime the opportunity arises.

    God bless.ReplyCancel

  • Caroline D.January 2, 2012 - 8:26 am


    I would also like to add that I need to use more of what I already have. I buy items based on your cards, but then I’m afraid to try them. Not this year! Thank you for your inspiration. CarolineReplyCancel

  • bethann dJanuary 2, 2012 - 8:36 am

    my second goal for this year (after using what i have) is to pay it forward,… give items i’ll never use to worthy causes, send cards to great causes such as the military families etc.ReplyCancel

  • DonnaJanuary 2, 2012 - 8:36 am

    Well your postings everyday are my inspriration, I some day inspire to be 1/2 as talented as you!! If I achieve that I will be happy!! This year I hope to be able to do more than I did last year, I have some serious health issues and they hold me back some, so I hope to be able to do more and do better.
    I have gotten some new dies and stamps, so I will give it a shot, and I also hope to post more to my blog!!
    Thanks for a chance Becca,

  • Marge R. (mer)January 2, 2012 - 9:14 am

    My 2nd goal for this year is to try to be less last-minute with my projects and postings! I’m not sure I can keep this goal, as it’s just my nature, it seems, but I’m surely going to give it a huge TRY!!! ;~)ReplyCancel

  • Kathy OJanuary 2, 2012 - 9:17 am

  • Monika/buzsyJanuary 2, 2012 - 9:31 am

  • Susan GJanuary 2, 2012 - 9:32 am

    My second 2012 Crafting goal is to use what I already have. I had to chuckle at one of the previous comments. “I have more in my basement than at Michael’s” I know I can’t be far behind!! Thanks for the opportunity to win such wonderful blog candy.
    Happy New Year.ReplyCancel

  • Ginny K.January 2, 2012 - 9:44 am

    My crafting and design goals for the new year are to finally get myself organized and big time! I was lucky enough to receive a great industrial rolling tool shelf unit and some shelving units and I plan to take advantage of the many drawers and hanging elements to store all of my crafts items. The shelving units will house the rest in bins and baskets with labels. I have a plan and ope to stick with it so that I can find the items I want , when I want them and be able to craft to my little hearts delight! ~Gin~ReplyCancel

  • Magi DuncanJanuary 2, 2012 - 9:48 am

    Second goal for 2012 as far as crafting goes is to use ONE of my rubber stamps on a card every other day! That way, I will not only have a great supply of cards, but I won’t feel like I threw money away on all those gorgeous, unused stamps!ReplyCancel

  • Sylvia/GeorgiaJanuary 2, 2012 - 10:04 am

  • Val WJanuary 2, 2012 - 10:14 am

    I am a sewer, as well as a papercrafter, so you can imagine the supplies I’ve amassed for both hobbies. I work at a business that does mail order sewing notions/fabrics. I’ve been able to bring home end cuts/ “scraps” (generally 1/4 yard or less,but some are larger) from cutting yardage for customers….very addicting….always with the intention of making something out of them. Well, I am going to start sewing up some of that fabric (before I’m literally buried in it!). I have brought home knits, as well as cotton fabrics, thinking about “someday” using them.
    I have some t-shirt knits that will become little t-shirts to take to our local food pantry, where they also have a clothing bank, for the food pantry clients.
    I also plan to make some quilts, and crochet some rugs with strips of fabric. Someday has come!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara AKA GardenladyJanuary 2, 2012 - 10:15 am

    One of the goals I set for yesterday was to use more of my Spellbinders dies. So many I haven’t even opened up the package except until yesterday. I played around with several of them. I had some Christmas cards that had wonderful verses inside that I hated to just throw in the trashcan. So I got my dies out and played around with cutting those verses to be recycled into new cards for the future. Yeah! I guess another goal for this year is to use some of the stamps I bought and haven’t used.

    Love the card today! Blue is my favorite color!ReplyCancel

  • Carolyn Sue GrovesJanuary 2, 2012 - 11:09 am

  • DebraKJanuary 2, 2012 - 11:18 am

    My very first goal is to reclaim my crafting room. I designed our home and the room that was supposed to be my craft room soon turned into a storage room for Christmas and other holiday items. We came up with an idea to build a 7′ x 14′ storage room outside in the garage and include a/c in it for all the holiday stuff. Then, I will design my craft room–all for me!!! I can’t wait to get it all together but I know it will take a few months. It will be so exciting!!!ReplyCancel

  • ColoradoJanuary 2, 2012 - 11:18 am

    One of my goals this year is to try some CAS cards! LOL!! I love seeing many of the CAS cards all over the web, but every card I create ends up being a pretty detailed production and they take so long to make… so I need to try some CAS and even one layer cards.ReplyCancel

  • Frances EricksonJanuary 2, 2012 - 11:20 am

  • Sue BraileyJanuary 2, 2012 - 11:23 am

    Good afternoon! My first crafty priority is figuring out what I have! I seem to keep buying the same things…go back to my first post about cleaning the craft area! I have stuff all over the house so I don’t know what I own. So that has to be at the top of the list!
    LOVE the card from today! You are absolutely remarkable!

  • ShirleyJanuary 2, 2012 - 11:37 am

    Becca, I really did some reflecting on your question and realize that organization of ALL my craft items should be a priority. I find myself buying some of the same items and then giving them away to my stamping friends. Sooooooo…… I’m restricting my purchases until my craft room is better organized. I’m starting today by going through my stamp drawers and eliminating stamps that are still unused or have no interest to me. It amazes me how my “style” keeps changing. Loving shabby chic now. Great idea for this post and would love to win your goodies because I don’t have any of them, especially those pretty flowers.

    Which spot to choice has stopped me from moving foward, but 2012 is the year to get organize!ReplyCancel

Actaully that will be probably be easier that I think because my local craft shop has closed down and now to get to a place for gorgeous papers etc I will have to travel more than 50 miles, and then back!!! I think my stash might actually diminish!ReplyCancel

  • Marjorie ShannenJanuary 2, 2012 - 1:27 pm

    Becca’s beautiful butterfly verse card- a great start to my day seeing it.
    Goal 2 for 2012 for me is to get someone to make a BECCA PEG BOW MAKER you showed us some time back. I love bows and most cards have one attached and every time I attemp to tie the bow I think of you and your bow maker. Yes it will happen – not just this year but this month and this week at the latest. Life is too short so I am going to make the most of every day. God Bless you and take care each day.

    Happy New Year to you, Becca! I don’t have any crafting goals. I never make any kinds of goals or resolutions because I never keep them despite my good intentions. I just want to have fun with my crafting!ReplyCancel

    Happy New Year to you.

    Love visiting your blog each time you post – so inspirational.

    One of my crafting goals for this year to try different techniques that I may have seen but not used before – I’m drawing up a list and each month will try and complete one or two items on that list. Should be fun trying :-)ReplyCancel

  • Clarissa DJanuary 2, 2012 - 4:28 pm

    Happy New Year Becca. Your masculine is wonderful! My crafting goal is to make the transition from hobbyist to a business. I ‘ve read a lot, taken an online virtual business owners’ class, and now I’m ready for the plunge. I will ask the Lord to guide my footsteps in the direction that I need to go.
    Wishing you the Lord’s best for 2012!ReplyCancel

  • LindylooJanuary 2, 2012 - 4:46 pm

    Good evening Becca (its gone 10.30pm here in Wales)
    I hope today finds you in good form.
    My 2nd goal for 2012 is ‘Patience’.
    Patience to put aside anything that may not be up to scratch without throwing it aside and thinking I’ve lost it (my crafting mojo that is). Also patience to begin again.
    Have a good day Linda (S.Wales, UK)ReplyCancel

  • ChristineJanuary 2, 2012 - 4:57 pm

    Happy New Year Becca! Thanks for the chance to win blog candy. My hope is that I get my craft room up and running. I keep buying more “STUFF” but have not crafted in a while, life gets in the way, you know, but I have hope that I will be crafting again soon. You are such an inspiration because your cards are over the top gorgeous! Thank you for sharing you talent with us. :) JeanneReplyCancel

  • Debbie BJanuary 2, 2012 - 5:04 pm

    Wow! Another year is on us and I guess we should be making some resolutions. My crafting goal this year is to actually finish a scrapbook about my oldest son. He died at the age of 23 and I have not been able to open the box with all of his pictures and school stuff in it. My goal is to just hunker down and do it. He would be happy that I could move on to the next step and be happy for him to be with the Lord!ReplyCancel

  • tanja souterJanuary 2, 2012 - 5:33 pm

    I think a good resolution for me is to buy less supplies and craft more with the supplies I already own (I think there are many others who feel the same). Beautiful Butterfly sentiment card today Becca.ReplyCancel

    Becca, I love your blog and the video I watch most often is the making a double bow. My card making goal for 2012 is to be much better organized and to make my Christmas cards through the year, so I won’t be so rushed in the late fall. Thank you for this great opportunity.ReplyCancel

  • Darlene PJanuary 2, 2012 - 6:45 pm

    Hello again Becca . . . for my second crafting goal for 2012 I want to use what I have. That means no new purchases for the first three months of 2012 of anything that is not an adhesive (and since I just got a dozen rolls of tape for my ATG I shouldn’t even need that), unless I have absolutely positively run out of it.ReplyCancel

  • ArleenJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:36 pm

    …..and a most Blessed New Year to you, Becca. I just love checking in each day to see your most beautiful designs. You truly inspire me to create but most importantly to be thankful for God’s gifts to me. I showed my 11 year old Grandaughter how you describe yourself first as a Child of God and so she sat and made a list of all the roles she has been gifted with starting first as a Child of God. Thank you for always radiating God’s love.ReplyCancel

  • TammieJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:37 pm

    Miracles happen! Today I actually started on the goal I wrote yesterday. I already have a box of stamps and embellishments to pass on to friends. Getting started helped me establish my second goal -‘quit saving, use it! I tend to save that one piece of paper or perfect ribbon for the special project. Hmm – it is time to make every card then”special project” deserving of the items growing in my collection. Smile.

    Becca, I love the stamp and your color application. Have you considered putting a book together – “the Best of Amazing Paper Grace: God’s blessings through paper art.”. I’d be your first customer.


  • Lorraine MJanuary 2, 2012 - 7:49 pm

    This is not a crafting goal, but I’m hoping I can get enough of us praying for you and a miracle happens and one of these mornings you wake up PAIN FREE. Now is that is that a goal or what. You have such a positive attitude it is catchy. Have a blessed and wonderful year.ReplyCancel

    Anyway, my third goal for this year is to make more of the kinds of cards I would like to make instead of thinking every card I send has to be made “just for that person”. Although I do enjoy making personalized cards, it also keeps me from trying other things that I find so neat…like Becca cards!!! Thanks again for sharing your awesome talent!ReplyCancel

  • SoniaJanuary 3, 2012 - 5:22 am

    In working on organizing my craft room, I have been thinking about the possibility of moving it to a larger room so I could hold the classes I am planning right in my craft area rather than have to bring things out to the dining room. Since I am not sure if this is the best idea, as well as being a daunting task involving the rearranging 2 or even 3 rooms, I hesitate. So I continue to work on the current space as even if I do move things, having the one area organized will make the task a little easier should I decide to go that way. (I may be crazy- ;D!)ReplyCancel

    Well Becca, its day three for me to give you my next goal for 2012
    I have been thinking long and hard about this so that it wasn’t just a flippant answer, but something that would be achievable but worthwhile also.
    So today would be Time. I must make time for crafting. Sometimes I plan to do some papercrafting but don’t plan my day well enough and end up with little or no time to craft. So I am going to make time within each and hopefully everyday to do a little crafting if not alot.
    So far my goals are then, 1.Peace -Inner peace to find my crafting mojo again. 2. Patience -To be patient with myself when my cards etc don’t quite turn out the way they should. 3. Time -Make time to craft and to relax.
    This little exercise of yours is really helping me to organise my thoughts AND my craftroom! Wonderful.

    Thirdly, I am going to help my hubby re-organize my craft room, adding shelving to my closet. I know that this will create a lot of work, including a lot of tossing out/giving away, but that will be very good in the end.

    One of my goals is to work harder at giving my cards away. When I get a really nice one done, I have a harder time giving it away. My parents never did get their Christmas card, I liked it too much.ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie WJanuary 3, 2012 - 8:07 am

    My craft space is currently taking up a whole wall in our living room. One of my goals is to find some way to organize my space that will make it look less chaotic. My dh never complains but I’m sure he’d appreciate a little more order. :)ReplyCancel

  • Kyle E.January 3, 2012 - 8:16 am

    I hope to get back to card making this year. Last year was a very hectic year for me due sto work schedule and a serious illness in my family, but I am going to try to set aside time to do what I love and what really relaxes me — making cards for family and friends. I sure would love some blog candy to spur me on!! Thanks, Becca!!ReplyCancel

  • PatriciaJanuary 3, 2012 - 8:17 am

    This year I would like to make a stash of cards and have them ready to mail out ON TIME for each event. This is a totally do-able goal if I craft 5 days/week (goal #1).ReplyCancel

  • Sylvia/GeorgiaJanuary 3, 2012 - 8:25 am

    After organizing and purging, my 3rd craft goal for the year is to become more focused. I’d like to take my birthday list and set aside a time to make the cards for each month instead of making them one-by-one (usually the night before they have to go in the mail). Wish me luck!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara BJanuary 3, 2012 - 8:36 am

    Today’s goal is to become more organized, and I think that this can be done by getting rid of some things. So, as I rearrange everything, I will also start putting things aside that I can sell at the next ‘garage sale’ that one of the local stores have. That way I can buy more!!! (Isn’t that defeating the whole point of the exercise!!) :-)ReplyCancel

  • Barbara in SCJanuary 3, 2012 - 8:43 am

    Let’s see ~ goal #3 would be to adopt that Scout motto “Be Prepared”. Make those necessary cards ahead of time so that I’m not scrambling to get them done the day before they are needed. After all, the birthdays arrive the same day every year, just like Christmas! Make a list at the start of the month and Get ‘er Done!ReplyCancel

  • Rose LaQuayJanuary 3, 2012 - 8:46 am

    Love the Spellbinder die cuts in your latest post!! You certainly have a way of combining them! Fabulous!

    Another crafting resolution…I need to finish the knitting projects I have on needles. I have 4 things going right now, a prayer shawl, an afghan and 2 pairs of socks. My son wants fingerless gloves and a hat, and I want a sweater and hat. Hmmm… I probably won’t get the stuff on needles done before I start new projects, but my goal is to finish those 4 by the end of 2012.

  • ColoradoJanuary 3, 2012 - 11:06 am

    I guess it’s repetitive since I always seem to be working on it, but don’t we all have to keep reorganizing our craft supplies as our collections continue to grow? …not that I’ve EVER had mine really organized to begin with. So, that’s a goal for this year… to get my stuff organized in a way that makes it easier for me to remember what I have and actually USE the stuff. I have new shelves for my supplies and I want to use them to their full potential.ReplyCancel

    One of my 2012 goals is to use the materials I have on hand to create as many cards & projects as I can.

    This year my goal will to make some beautiful feminine cards like you show on your blog. You have such a creative mind and pull things together and they look beautiful. This might sound strange but I really need to learn how to ink the edges of the paper to make it look vintage. I have tried and it looks like a child smeared stuff on the edges. Maybe I am being too fussy but some areas look fine but others too much ink. How do you make yours look so pretty?ReplyCancel

    Goal number 3 for me is make some cards for less fortunate people around me so they can send to others. As cards are expensive some people can not afford to give them so if I make and give some for others to send to loved ones it would make me feel better and the sender feel better too.

    Happy New Year Becca (and everyone else)!

    I have a crafting goal for this year, which I set after much thought and consideration. I would like to make a larger effort to make my card making a small business. I’d like to start up a blog and a corresponding site where I can sell my creations via PayPal.
    I know this will take a lot of focus and determination, both of which I have to admit waver a lot depending on the day and how well my MS is behaving (or misbehaving lol).
    So many others have gone before me, which is both daunting and inspiring all at once. You are one of my blogger inspirations and I thank you for the time and commitment I know you put into doing all you do.

    A goal of mine (not a crafting one) would be to ask my kids (2 teenagers and a 9 year old) to help around the house more. We all pitched in to dismantle the Christmas tree and it only took 10 mins or so. It would have taken me around an hour to do it all on my own! It can be much easier to do a lot of these things myself but it is better for everyone if I get the children to help.ReplyCancel

    Although cards are “my thing,” I’d really like to finish up a couple of scrapbooks this year. My son’s wedding was 3 years ago! Oops!ReplyCancel

  • Sharon MooreJanuary 3, 2012 - 10:13 pm

    Love the new nested ovals set and the card you made. Here is my posting for day 3. Another goal for this year is to use the “many” embossing folders I have!ReplyCancel

  • Stella DJanuary 3, 2012 - 10:25 pm

    WOW!!! I Love your card. You’re such an inspiration! Another one of my goals for this year is to craft more by “scheduling” time like you would a doctor appt. etc. Thank you for your generosity.ReplyCancel

  • Phyllis McKennaJanuary 3, 2012 - 10:26 pm

    My biggest crafting goal for this year is to use up some of the things I have been holding onto as precious.ReplyCancel

  • Darlene PJanuary 3, 2012 - 10:42 pm

    Goal 1 – get better organized
    Goal 2 – use what I have, no shopping until April
    Goal 3 . . . blog more consistently. It doesn’t have to be everyday, but it should be no less than once per week. Right now it’s very haphazard and random.ReplyCancel

  • Sally-Ann (From Down Under)January 4, 2012 - 12:36 am

    January 4th 2012
    5 days and 5 rings, a goal for each . . . . so here goes for my day 4 response to Becca’s Candy blog. For my fourth Gold Ring ushering in the New Year with a Goal to use my card making and scrapbooking as a way of growing and building upon the relationship I have with my sister. Clare lives across the other side of the world and shares a passion for this creative outlet. It would mean I would contact her far more frequently than I do and this is something we both have agreed to work on – sharing examples of cards we have made would provide the ideal framework. Thanks again Becca for providing this inspiration.
    [As I am writing my goals over these 5 days, I am finding it to be quite a cathartic process – is anyone else experiencing this too?]ReplyCancel

  • Suzanne E. C.January 4, 2012 - 1:21 am

    Another one of my crafting goals for this year is to spend more time creating cards with my sisters, SIL and nieces. I love sharing my supplies and we have so much fun together.ReplyCancel

  • DWDJanuary 4, 2012 - 1:57 am

    Goal #4…I would love to be able to make cards like yours. When I started buying Nesties, I picked shapes to give me variety. The shapes aren’t close enough to mix & match like you do. I think I need to re-plan and go back to the beginning and fill in some gaps. Anybody know where to find cheap deals on Spellbinders??? I think I may go broke filling in my gaps. LOLReplyCancel

  • Kathy SJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:01 am

    Just catching up on blogs after the hols -have been away from my computer for 5 days-:( my aim craftwise this year is to finish off and move into my slightly larger craft room and organize all my crafts so I can see my UFO’s and finish them, as well as hope to participate in some blog challenges for cardmaking and get my blog up and running again more regularly.ReplyCancel

  • MaryannJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:47 am

    Another thing, I would like to learn this year is to use an airbrush. Don´t know why, but have always been facinated of that, and now I´ve got a compressor for christmas, so I´m pretty sure, I´ll get the airbrush for my birthday later he he he.ReplyCancel

  • Christine Harrop, Oxfordshire, UKJanuary 4, 2012 - 2:51 am

    Something else I am determined to do is work harder at colouring techniques! I am very poor and when I look at other people’s gorgeous finished stamps etc I am so envious. So I am really going to try, especially since Santa left me some Promarkers!ReplyCancel

  • Sabrina RJanuary 4, 2012 - 3:20 am

    It’s getting close to choosing a blog candy winner … My goal this year is to become more organized, not only in my crafting and card-making world, but in every aspect of my life. I tend to leave things for “later” and that could be a week or two, or just before company is to arrive or the cards NEEDS to get in the mail. I’m very much a procrastinator. Today my priority is to put away everything that is sitting on my bedroom and computer room floor that I received for Christmas and to take down all my Christmas decorations.ReplyCancel

    So much fun to come back each day (or almost each day, lol) as it has me thinking about goals for 2012. Another is the use of my picked word for the year…”Open”….I am hoping to have an open heart and mind as I go through the year. Open to new things, open to change, open to others suggestions, open new doors, open new friendships…..I could keep going, lol!ReplyCancel

    For my fourth goal, I’m going to try to use some of my tools more often in my crafting. I’ve not really used my Distrezz-it-All since I got it or my Bind-It-All. Hopefully, my projects will improve once I dust off my machines and make them work for me?!!!ReplyCancel

  • Becky GreenJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:33 am

    ANOTHER goal for this year would be to TRY NEW TECHNIQUES!!!!!!! Since I have NO ONE close to teach me, I pretty much have to do it all on my own! Sometimes, just not having the supplies on hand makes me pull away from a technique, but I WILL try some new ones! :)ReplyCancel

  • FrancineJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:49 am

    My fourth goal will be try some calligraphy because actually the enveloppe
    don’t match the card.
    I don’t know where to start with this but it might be like usual one step at a time.

  • CherieJanuary 4, 2012 - 8:55 am

    Hi Becca. Another goal I have for this year is try and keep my craft space organized and clean up after each project.

  • Cyndee ScholetJanuary 4, 2012 - 11:15 am

    One of my crafting goals is to start on my Christmas cards early. This was the first year that I tried that and it saved my sanity when it became crunch time in November and December. I plan on starting even sooner this year and having them even more completed (inside papers, sentiment, etc). I will be starting some in January and just work a little bit all year long.ReplyCancel

    I love the way you use so many elements in an “out of the box” way…so creative.

    Another goal I have is to use stitching more in my card designs. Sewing and quilting came to be in my crafting long before card making… Not sure why I don’t stitch more on my cards… I hope to remedy that this year. I always admire it when I see it on cards.ReplyCancel

You cards and projects are just gorgous!!! Love your name of course, due to the fact, my daughter’s name is Bekka also. Ok crafting resolution for the year. All UFO’s finished first. Then start on the notebook of projects I have collected and create until I need craft rehap. I am honestly probably already there, dear.

  • NikiJanuary 5, 2012 - 9:49 am

    Another crafting goal for this year is to use what I have. There are so many things in my stash–stamps, paper, embellishments–that I could craft for years and not use them all up. I need to look hard at those items before I run out and buy more stuff. Same goes with my yarn stash, I need to knit up some of the fiber on hand. I have lots of projects in mind, and supplies to do them, so I certainly don’t need more.

    That is, until I see the latest and greatest new thing!

    Well sadly my old purple Spellbinders Wizard just bit the dust on me, I’m so sad :( So first on my list is to get a new Wizard or if I am extra lucky to find a Calibur on sale. I am borrowing mom’s cuttlebug, but I need my own, lol! Thank you for the chance Becca! :)ReplyCancel

  • Laraine RJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:05 am

    Another of my goals this year is to send out more of the hand made cards to family & friends! I am so bad at this! I make the cards & forget to send them out!! Thanks for the chance to win!!ReplyCancel

  • D IdletJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:29 am

    Becca, thanks for the opportunity to win the blog candy. My New Year’s resolution is to blog more.ReplyCancel

  • ColoradoJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:35 am

    A goal for this year is to try as many of the techniques that I’ve read about as possible. I love learning about new techniques. I’m constantly reading on the Internet to learn all I can about papercrafting and watching videos about techniques when possible. The only problem is that I don’t follow through and try all the techniques that I read about even though I think they are wonderful and would make my cards more interesting. So, hopefully this will be the year of “techniques” for me.ReplyCancel

  • ShirleyJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:36 am

    Becca, after reading a lot of comments, it seems we crafters have a lot in common with too much of a good thing. I’ve really been working hard to use the things I have in creating my cards. Have stayed away from stores because the temptations are too great there. Those discount coupons are definitely alluring, but I’ve realized that I don’t need to have a stamp store in my home. This post has been so good for me as I read that I’m not alone in this craft with our over abundance of supplies. Hopefully, I will keep to my goals this year.

  • Robin GasserJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:44 am

    I really love all your projects even if I don’t try out all of them. The inspiration is there and I love it!

  • TrinaMJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:04 am

    Another crafting goal for 2012 is to be more adventurous in my style, colors and design as I tend to be quite conservative and I need to break out more often.ReplyCancel

  • TeresaJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:15 am

    Hi Becca, Well one of my crafting goals is to start using the Grand Calibur I got for christmas!! I don’t have any large dies yet, so this would be a good start to my crafting stash! I also would love to figure out a way to organize my papers…I have about 25 pads of 12 x 12 paper and tons of single sheets of 12 x 12 paper. Thanks for the chance to win. Hugs, TeresaReplyCancel

  • Monika/buzsyJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:15 am

    I think I could come up with new resolutions every day! Today would be spending less time blog surfing and more time on actual crafting! I am not getting my work done! :o)ReplyCancel

  • Barbara BJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:20 am

    Another goal is to learn to colour. I see so many beautiful cards with amazing colouring…. I want to learn how.ReplyCancel

  • Frances EricksonJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:31 am

    OH MY ! THis latest card was a WOW!!! I love it. Get out of my way family I am heading for my craft room…..ReplyCancel

  • Teresa BradaJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:41 am

    My goal for the new year is to spend a lot more time in my craft room and less time on the web!!ReplyCancel

  • sherisayJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:43 am

    Another idea…what you have done stacking die cuts. Like it. Simple, but most definitely something to remember.ReplyCancel

  • JudyJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:47 am

    My biggest goal this year is to get more motivated in every direction. Now that my husband is retired I find it hard to routinely do anything, like I was doing before his retirement. I work best with a schedule when it comes to house cleaning/gardening/crafting, etc. Thanks for offering up some terrific blog candy and happy to read where you are going to continue to design multiple layer cards and other box/craft items.ReplyCancel

  • Regina aka Mrs. HamJanuary 5, 2012 - 11:54 am

    One of my crafting goal is to try and use fabric and canvas in my projects.ReplyCancel

  • EmilyJanuary 5, 2012 - 12:22 pm

    Another goal on my list for this year is to do more with coloring stamped images. I get a bit intimidated by all the wonderful things I’ve seen online, but I’ve got my mind set on working on coloring techniques.ReplyCancel

  • Dedra JohnsonJanuary 5, 2012 - 12:36 pm

    I love your work and check your site daily. You are such an inspiration to me. I have tried to duplicate many of your cards for my card club – not as gorgeous as yours, but still lovely.ReplyCancel

  • AndriaJanuary 5, 2012 - 12:48 pm

    My goal for 2012 is to be more AG (Amazing & Graceful) in my crafting. Thanks for all the inspiration, Becca!ReplyCancel

  • CherieJanuary 5, 2012 - 12:48 pm

    Hi, Becca. I hope you’re having a great day. I love all of your creations and you provide me with such great inspiration. Another goal I have for this year is to try more new techniques. Thanks again for the chance to win your awesome blog candy.ReplyCancel

  • Clare CurcioJanuary 5, 2012 - 1:40 pm

    It’s so generous of you, Becca, to offer such wonderful blog candy!

    We have been putting off getting our 5th-wheel trailer back in shape after the wind blew the awning off, and we developed a small leak in the toilet plumbing. Hubby has had both his shoulders surgically repaired, so we haven’t been able to go anywhere in it this year, so that’s something we’d like to take care of this year. In order to do that, though, we are both trying to get in better physical condition, since we’re in our mid-50’s.

    I hope God is lessening your grief by the day, and that you are well! Thank you for sharing your awesome talent!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy WJanuary 5, 2012 - 1:54 pm

    I check in daily for my “Becca” lift and inspiration. All of your cards are beautiful and creative!!! I love them all and encourage you to do whatever your spirit moves you to do. Lots of love to you and yours in this New Year.ReplyCancel

  • LindylooJanuary 5, 2012 - 2:21 pm

    Well Becca I am back again with my fifth and last goal for this year.
    These are my goal comments to you so far:-
    1. Peace -Inner peace to find my crafting mojo again.
    2. Patience -To be patient with myself when my cards etc don’t quite turn out the way they should.
    3. Time -Make time to craft and to relax
    4. Organisation – To finish organising my new craftroom so I have easy access to everything.
    And now for todays. The final one is:-
    5. Charity -This year I want to make cards to sell for Charity and therefore, I must find the right Charity. I am thinking maybe the local animal shelter, I will have to look into it.
    Well thats it I believe. I have struggled to get my comments to submit on two days, but I think they got through in the end. I hope so.
    Thank you again for this little challenge, it has actually helped me to focus on the important things that I need to do as I begin this new year.
    Bless you. Linda (S.Wales, UK)ReplyCancel

  • AntonellaJanuary 5, 2012 - 2:45 pm

    So much fun… thinking of my resolutions / goals for this year…. I really hope that I can create some new projects this year with the fun new dies I’ve just received!
    Antonella :-)ReplyCancel

  • Marge R. (mer)January 5, 2012 - 3:35 pm

    My fourth goal is to make myself work in more exercising/standing/walking while I’m creating, which may mean some breaks for a few minutes every hour to stretch, walk and try to keep from gaining any more weight (and maybe losing a bit?)! I get so caught up in my crafting that I forget to eat/drink/move sometimes — NOT good!!! ;-(ReplyCancel

  • DeniceJanuary 5, 2012 - 3:41 pm

    Love your creativity. Love your tutorials, Love your kindness…. Love you….. God bless….. DeniceReplyCancel

  • Tanja S.January 5, 2012 - 3:52 pm

    I need to spend less time on the internet, looking at cards and more time actually making them! Also I need to choosy about whether to do a blog hop or not as although fun, they can be time consuming!ReplyCancel

  • Jill NorwoodJanuary 5, 2012 - 3:54 pm

    Oh what fun Becca! You are so sweet to post a new year’s candy for us! I have several important goals this year mostly centered around using my cards to give back and raise money for cancer research. In preparing to do this I have been working diligently to completely organize my craft room by color. It takes lots of time but it is coming along slowly but surely. I try to do a little each day during times when my husband doesn’t need me as much – ie: when he is asleep. I am finding that I can make cards much faster when all of my embellishments are in color order.ReplyCancel

  • Linda EJanuary 5, 2012 - 3:55 pm

    Another scrappy resolution is to schedule more time to create! Thanks for the chance!ReplyCancel

  • Maxine DiffeyJanuary 5, 2012 - 3:57 pm

    Thought I may aim to be on another DT, and maybe look at submitting for publication………………ReplyCancel

  • NancyJanuary 5, 2012 - 4:05 pm

    I want my crafting to bring me closer to God. Every card I make will be to glorify Him.ReplyCancel

  • RebeccaJanuary 5, 2012 - 4:40 pm

    I need to blog more. I’ve been creating less because of being pregnant and now with a brand new baby but I still have tons saved up to blog. I’m just more tired these last few months so I just haven’t gotten to it. Definitely a goal for the new year!ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl StaufferJanuary 5, 2012 - 4:47 pm

    My last crafting goal is to learn to use my Cricut machine that is still in the box!!ReplyCancel

  • Vicky SchmidtJanuary 5, 2012 - 5:05 pm

    One other goal I have is to try all your tutiorals. Then add them to my cards. Love every one of your cards.

  • Denise BryantJanuary 5, 2012 - 5:14 pm

    I want to try to use my tools more often… I have a Cuttlebug and lots of embossing folders, and a QuicKutz Revolution with dies. So I need to be more productive!

  • PJJanuary 5, 2012 - 5:21 pm

    My fifth crafting goal is to work on creating a blog… Not sure how to start so I have a feeling this goal will probably continue into next year, but I definitely would like to give it an honest try! Becca, thanks for asking the question on your blog candy post… it definitely got me to think about some goals for my crafting year ahead.ReplyCancel

  • Judy AJanuary 5, 2012 - 5:52 pm

    Another one of my 2012 Crafting Goals is to try several new techniques. Thanks for the blog candy.ReplyCancel

  • Delores in VAJanuary 5, 2012 - 5:54 pm

    I am determined to learn Photoshop Elements this year. I think it will really help in my card designing. Thanks for all your inspirations!ReplyCancel

  • Janet CastleJanuary 5, 2012 - 5:55 pm

    We are in the 50’s here in Salem, OR and it was a beautiful, sunny day!!! You should come for a visit – I have a guest room!!! At any rate, hope to see/meet you at CHA!
    Goal #5: Use ribbon this year…I have tons and never seem to use it – LOL!
    Paper Hugs,
    Jan CastleReplyCancel

  • Merry S.January 5, 2012 - 5:58 pm

    Happy Thursday Becca! Another goal I have set for myself is to use my Spellbinder dies more often. If I could make my cards look even half as good as yours, I’d be a happy girl. Happy New Year!ReplyCancel

  • Val WJanuary 5, 2012 - 6:20 pm

    This year I’d like to participate in some of the challenges on SCS. I admire the cards I’ve seen from them, but have never played along. They say the challenges help to kickstart your mojo, and I really seem to need that right now, ’cause my mojo’s up and left me.ReplyCancel

  • Beth GrecoJanuary 5, 2012 - 6:38 pm

    I always mean to play along with challenges but I often get sidetracked before I get them added to my gallery. So that a good crafting goal for this year. Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy!!ReplyCancel

  • Michel EJanuary 5, 2012 - 7:05 pm

    Another resolution is to use the tools I have more-spellbinder dies, embossing folders, punches.

  • Clare CurcioJanuary 5, 2012 - 7:15 pm

    Someone will be so lucky to win this absolutely awesome blog candy! You are so sweet, Becca!

    I need to clean up my craft room, and I’d like to say it will stay that way, but you know how it doesn’t! lol That’s what I’d like to do this year – commit to keeping it straightened up, and do some perging.ReplyCancel

  • Carol FroehlichJanuary 5, 2012 - 7:18 pm

    This year I will be working on the master plan and the creating of the scrapbook of my parents lives. Been researching the genealogy, now I have what I need on the grandparents, so I have to figure out how I am going to make it into an attractive scrapbook. Actually there will be more than one and then I promised I would do one for my siblings too. So….I will be extremely busy this year with that and keeping up with my monthly birthday cards. Did I ever tell you that my job gets in the way of my crafting life!!! ha ha ha

    Blessings to you Becca!!ReplyCancel

  • Becki HadawayJanuary 5, 2012 - 7:22 pm

    Can’t wait to see what you come up with tomorrow. You are very talented.

  • Carletta BrockJanuary 5, 2012 - 7:40 pm

    I love all things beautiful and you create beautiful things and show them to us so that we may be inspired. Thank you for sharing blog candy with us, it allows us to create beautiful paper crafts too.ReplyCancel

  • Betsye RoseJanuary 5, 2012 - 7:45 pm

    I have a goal to not do any scrappy spending until I have completed 30 layouts and 75 cards.ReplyCancel

  • janeyJanuary 5, 2012 - 7:57 pm

    Began working at husband’s office – until tax season is over in April. I am not a numbers person, however, I can file, sort, do the mail, and many of the ‘little’ things that need to be completed, but the ‘experts’ don’t have to bother with while I’m there. Good feeling.

    Another craft goal for 2012 – to share delicious blogs like yours with my stamping friends…..I do not need to be so protective – share the beauty and talent.


  • DWDJanuary 5, 2012 - 8:28 pm

    Goal #5 is to use my Cricut Expression. It has been in the box since March, almost a year. I am somehow afraid to try it out. LOLReplyCancel

  • LorettaJanuary 5, 2012 - 8:41 pm

    Becca thank you so much for the chance to win the great blog candy. Another one of my 2012 goals is to make more cards for the Ministry of Compassion at my church. These cards are then sent to folks during times of illness, death or whenever someone needs guidance or encouragement.ReplyCancel

  • TammieJanuary 5, 2012 - 9:14 pm

    #5 I plan to recruit a few high stressed career ladies to become stampers-papercrafters. Its healthier than chocolate, less expensive than therapy, and provides intense concentration without perspiration!

    Hmm, the pyramid layering is an idea I have to try. Great possibilities for guy cards.


  • Melissa BJanuary 5, 2012 - 9:16 pm

    Another goal is to use more embellishments this year, especially ribbon!ReplyCancel

  • Sandra ltbJanuary 5, 2012 - 9:52 pm

  • Magi DuncanJanuary 5, 2012 - 10:03 pm

    Well, this is the last comment from me! I would love to find a class that teaches different techniques, folding, etc. I have the basics down but I would really like to expand my creativity! I also do counted cross-stitch and have several projects “in the beginning stages”! Those will be completed this year, as well! Now that I have put all this down on your site, and confessed it to hundreds of people, I better make sure I follow through! Thanks for the opportunity to win some really cool blog candy, Becca. Hope you are feeling better and getting resolutions! Hugs, MagiReplyCancel

    Hello Becca
    You Go Girl!!
    I love all of your cards even when they are not my style because it gets me thinking beyond what I usually create.
    Keep doing what you are doing, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!!

    Hi Becca
    I enjoy your site so much. I have recommended it to several of my sister card makers. I love the fact that you always find ways to use your supplies in different ways. I also love to watch your video tutorials. What I appreciate the most is that you take the time to tell us what you are using and where we can purchase these items.
    The best to you for 2012
