that “Something Good is Always on the Way”. I believe that in my heart. Even when things are tough, I believe that something good is always around the corner :-)
This has been a year of prayer, discovery and restoration for me. It’s been a very long struggle to get through the grief – I won’t say I’m over it but I’m am to the point that I had to take stock and get back to running my household and my life. I left my job to be a caretaker and when I woke up this year I figured out that I am not the same person! Life was not on pause waiting for me to come back, hit the button and continue where I left off. It’s almost like being in a coma – you wake up to figure out that the world has changed, the workplace has changed and your life has been changed by everything you’ve been through and in my case Amazing Paper Grace has changed who I am. It was awkward and a little distressing to figure out that I don’t fit where I used to fit.
Yes, I toyed with creating a couple of tools and starting an Etsy store to keep my head above water. Needing a job and wondering what to do with Amazing Paper Grace when I went back to work created a lot of anxiety, okay . . . panic for me this year. I didn’t see a way that I’d be able to do both and talked to many about letting blogging go. Amazing Paper Grace has been my life vest for the last four years – something keeping me afloat while keeping me in close reach of my faith, friends and family. In my heart I know it was a gift sent to me, the answer to a prayer . . . at just the right time. Thinking about bringing things to an end brought a whole new round of grief but patience has brought an answer or more accurately, a nudging that I’m more than willing to take. I’ve been asked to license a line of stamps! It’s something I never thought I’d consider but it came along at just the right time.
You know me. You know how I got here. You’ve been with me all along on the journey. I have to think that this is where I fit in. As I stood in a convention hall in Ohio in April and hugged people whose stories were the same as mine – I felt like I fit in. As I read the comments and emails that come in about caretakers and cancer and how faith sustains us – I feel like I fit in. As I pray and look for guidance – I feel the comfort of fitting here. As I look up and see all the friends I have and the hugs that come in daily – I feel like this is where I’m supposed to be. I’m thankful to JustRite Papercrafts for giving me a chance – I’m blessed to be able get back up on my feet with their guidance – and along beside other stars in their licensing program like Samantha Walker. So the next step is Becca as a Craft Product Designer. In fact there are more pretty amazing things to come this month (make a mental note)! Nothing changes here at Amazing Paper Grace – you’ll still get the same original ideas, tutorials, Becca Bits and my frugal tips but in addition to showing you everyone else’s ideas (staying with all my design teams), you’ll get to see mine too!! So let me get on with it. There are three new stamp sets I’ve designed – I’ve been busy!
Today I’m showing a card made with Vintage Filigree Fancies in my favorite pinks – consider this a sneak peek of my first set. You can click here to see the set in it’s entirety!! If you poke around enough, you’ll even find a new logo :-) How did this come about? Well, this is one of the sets I was always searching for, wanted to buy, but never could find it. I wanted a filigree element and large drop caps in a vintage feel that could go from black and white, to gold embossed, to tone-on-tone. This is just one sample of what it looks like – you’ll see others throughout the month but the set, which will debut at CHA in a week, is available for preorder right now. If you want in on the first shipment coming, you’re able to pre-order now and they will begin shipping on July 24th. Normally the announcement would be made at CHA but these things leak out and I wanted you to hear it from me first and know how I got there!!
Did someone mention prizes to win? Ah, yeah!! Starting now and ending at 11pm Central Time on July 9th, you can leave a comment to be able to win this set. You’re able to enter once by leaving a comment on this post and we’ve giving away one set for each 100 comments received. In fact, I’ll be giving away sets each day they are featured. Don’t let this hold you up if you want to pre-order – I’d rather you be able to have them when they come in. If you win a set and have a pre-order in the hopper, we’ll simply make an adjustment to your order. We have a debate going on behind the scenes and need your help (please, please weigh in International Friends)! For your comment, please let us know your “go to” card size and why you are drawn to that size!!!
See, I told you it was a long post. I’ve been buried trying to see how this will work. Hopefully after CHA this month I get back to the many or projects and tutorials I’ve had waiting in the wings. A special kick off thanks to the Design Team at JustRite – they endured months of my silence and have done everything to support me. Please be sure you surf their blogs, whose links can be found under my Design Team tab up top. Thanks for your patience and I hope this is as nice a surprise for you as it is for me.

As you did, trust in the Lord and His will is amazing results. I follow you for project inspiration but more so a connection to my faith with another believer.
Congratulations to you I just knew if we waited patiently that you would have something special to tell us…. You deserve this…..I am so happy for you !! I can’t think of anyone that has earned this more than you …
Yippeee Skipppeeee, I get to be first. I am so glad for you. That is an understatement. I stand in awe of what God can do. Congratulations and blessings on your journey. Milliejs
This is absolutely gorgeous!!! Love these. My go to size card is 4.25″ x 5.5″. because it can be made from half a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ card stock.
HOW AWESOME BECCA! So excited for you and I can’t wait to see your creations! You have always done such beautiful cards featuring spellbinders that I think it’s only natural that you should have a line of Justrite stamps! This is gonna be awesome…I just know it!
As always…so very beautiful, Becca! I am drawn to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card size as it is a comfortable size, envelopes are easy to find and…I just like them!…lol! I mail most of my cards…postage gets costly sometimes with the square cards especially if they are heavily embellished.
Congratulations on the new line of stamps…it is about time!
Congratulations to you Becca. This could not happen to a sweeter, more gifted lady. Your blog is so inspiring and your own stamps!! WOW!! I’m sure they will be absolutely beautiful. My go to card size is the A-2. The very best to you in this new adventure.
I was right. You have a line of JustRite Stamps. Congratulations to you, because you really deserve the oppurtunity. God ALWAYS has a plan for our lives, even when things are not going the way we’ve planned. Funny, “Our Plan”. I will be ordering your stamps, for sure. Thanks for the chance to win.
Congratulations Becca, not only on your talent and the way you share your gifts. There is a saying that you reap what you sow, and you certainly deserve the harvest. Also congratulations on sharing your faith with us. I am sure that you have helped others who struggle with the challenges that life will place in front of us. You are an inspiration! God Bless!
I hear a lot of stories as a mentor that are very touching as I have read your past blog entries. But, this one; this one has really touched my heart. I’m kinda emotional right now as I can understand how one gets lost and then comes up for air to see a whole new world out there. Our lives do shift and change…always have, always will; that’s life with being a child of God. But, the main steady force behind it all is His presence. Without it we flounder and get lost and get side tracked and get gummed up! LOL. The cool thing of it is that during the whole thing, He is there all the time…so patiently waiting, healing us and directing us the whole time. Ha! And we thought we were lost. I am so thrilled for you! A whole new beginning that spells your name right at the top! You have my support and I am excited to see all those new ideas…I’ve been looking around for those kind of stamps myself! Onward Christian soldier! Glorify His name in it all for He is worthy.
Congratulations Becca! What a wonderful opportunity! The stamps are beautiful and I look forward to being able to use them! How excited you must be:) Personally I like working with A7 cards because there is more room for a message and I can do more with it. And I sincerely wish there were more stamps that supported A7.
You trusted Him and he is letting you know his plan for you! This seems to be your niche and personally I am glad this is your path. My go to size is square. 6×6. 5×5 !!!!!
Congratulations, Becca! Now your creativity and generosity will shared even more widely. How wonderful for all of us who benefit from and are inspired by your imagination and your reading on life’s important issues. Thank you for the chance to win, but two of these sets I already know are going to find a home in my craft room anyway. Enjoy your new endeavor! God bless you.
Congratulations!!! Your Stamps are just gorgeous! Your post put the biggest smile on my heart. My favorite size card to make is 4.25 x 5.5. Wishing you nothing but the best!
Congratulations Becca! You are such an inspiration. I get such a blessing looking, and reading your blog. Your cards are always so beautiful. I have learned so much from you, and am so excited for you. I was afraid you were going to say you have to give up your blog. Have a blessed day, and remember Jesus is always watching over you.
I’m so happy for you. God always listens and does respond. May you find happiness and joy in your live. You have been given a special gift. You can find inspiration and peace in your life while using your talent to help those of us who have their own problems. Good Luck!
I just signed up to receive your newsletter after I fell in love with your beautiful cards on Spellbinders Summer Preview. I don’t know your whole story but I do know that God is faithful to sustain us every step of our life and rejoice with you in His faithfulness. My usual card size is 5″X6″ because they fit well in the clear envelopes I like to use and I usually cut my cards from 12″X12″ cardstock.
Awesome!! -And I got goosebumps!!! WOW!! It doesn’t seem like that long ago that you quit work-but then I didn’t know about the whole reason. I remember one blog where John had bought you some of the new Martha Stewart punches-what a sweet husband ,I thought-and always supporting you with you craft. To me that was the begining! Your work is amazing -as is your story. Thank you for all you give to us who follow you -best wishes for all the new exciting things to come your way!
( oh yes- A2 card size for me I guess-because I am such a hoarder of my things!) God Bless!
Well, you are AMAZING and this new set is too!!! Cannot wait to own them ALL!!! LOVE JR and sooo happy for you that this new life phase now has provided you with an answer that you needed!
My DD’s dear friend has been battling breast cancer since last fall and it’s sooo crushing to see anyone go through what she has had to endure. They’ve had a lot of difficult growing up to do in their early 30’s as they’ve had to face not only the cancer, but losing their longed-for baby because of it. Through it all though, she’s remained a rock and I continue to pray that God blesses her family.
You’re such a giving, loving and gifted artist, Becca, and I’m so very happy for your well-deserved blessings today!!! Just more proof of your special angel in heaven smiling down on you!!! :~)
Oh, I guess my preferred card size is A-2, but lately I’m drawn to create larger cards as I try to learn to do more complicated ones versus CAS. More ‘real estate’ means more embellishing — LOL!
Congratulations, Becca!! I’m as pleased as punch for you, girl! You so richly deserve this and I have no doubt whatsoever that your new product line will be a huge success. I have posted these exact sentiments on the Just Right blog too. In fact I was the first to congratulate them on their wise decision! LOL I have 2 go-to sizes for the cards I make. They are 6″ square and 5″ x 7″, mostly because I hand color the images that go on my cards and it’s terribly difficult to go to small with the digi stamps and still do a decent job of coloring them. I would love to win this stamp set as I can’t afford to buy it until I find a new job. It’s been a touch period in my life too and I’m trusting that my reward will come eventually as it has for you. Bless you and wishes for much success!
Congratulations Becca! I am so happy for you and can’t wait to see more from you. Love your first set.
My heart is full for you. We are all blessed! My go to is 4.25×5.5 .. half a cardstock and no extra postage for oversize (although my cards are always lumpy/bumpy. Can’t wait to place my order. HUGS
Congrats to you, Becca; your line of stamps will be beautiful — just like all your artwork. My go to size is usually A2 but I do go larger i.e., 6×4 1/4 for family. Best wishes to you.
So excited for you Becca!! What an opportunity and I always love your cards with always the perfect sentiment and now your own line. Congrats!!
Sooooo happy for you, Becca! Nothing better than working at something you love. The perfect fit for sure :) Look forwad to seeing your creations! Gorgeous job showcasing your first!
Oh, I forgot. My go to card size is 6 x 6 with the reason of more real estate to work with. I have been moving down to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 because most bubble wrap envelopes are 6 x 9 and my cards won’t fit.
Congrats on your new adventure!! Seen the stamps prior to your e-mail and loved them. “When one door closes another one open.” You just have to look for it.
I usually make 4 x 5 1/2 cards , but recently have been enjoying making cards that are 5 x 6 1/2. Had to start making larger cards because you have inspired me to increase the layers, fluff and bling.
Keep on making such beautiful cards and success on your new stamp line.
Congratulations Becca. What a fabulous news! Love your sets… elegant and pretty.
Congrats Becca.. You deserve this honor and so much more… I have been stalking your blog for quite some time… (The silent stalker) and you have been through so much and yet you stay afloat. You are an amazingly strong woman and you have so much going for you… This is just one more reason that you are doing exactly what God meant for you to do and you are exactly where HE wants you… Congrats!!!
Wow, Becca, how exciting!!!!! I wish I could give you a big bear hug right now! The sets are fabulous! May God bless your new venture!!! Love and hugs, Angie
Congratulations! What exciting news! Thanks for the chance to win, and my go to card size is 5 1/4 square.
Congratulations Becca! This is wonderful news. God Bless.
i was just going through just rite stamper website y’day for some stamps where i saw new stamp collection with APG name in it.. i must say i was pleased too see new collection.. i would totally love to win this set..
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Congratulations on your new journey.
well my go to size is 4.5 by 5.5 cos i dunt add many layers.. n like to work with small cards.. small images…
What a wonderful surprise and a fantastic opportunity for you! You have earned this with the beautiful work you’ve done and the creativity you posess. Someone has finally recognized that.
I love odd sized cards and especially round and square cards. Unfortunately, it costs more (sometimes, much more) to mail them. For that reason, I stick with the standard 4.25X5.5 size.
Well, looks like God opened another window for you! Congratulations and may your blessings continue to flow.
What a fabulous opportunity and wonderful match of talent and craft company! You two are meant for each other! The stamps are fabulous….I need this set!
I do cards in all sizes…I guess most would be A2 but I do ’em all! Especially if they are going to be hand delivered….then you can go crazy!
Congrats again dear friend. I’m thrilled for you! Well deserved opportunity.
I am so happy for you that God made a way where you thought there was no way. I love your new stamp and I absolultey cannot wait to see the rest!
Oh well done Becca, all good things come to those who wait; they also come at just the right time in your life – when you are ready and able to do it. You will succeed, because love, humour, care and dedication oooze out of your creations. Enjoy the ride!!
Card size – 6″ by 6″ to match how I feel – square.
When one door closes, another one opens! I am so excited for you and your accomplishments. This is just the beginning, Becca. You are a very talented woman and I wish you all the success in the world.
Congratulations on your exciting news how wonderful! Looking forward to seeing more of your stamps!
Also my go size for cards is A-6 it’s just right not to big and not to small.
Congratulations, Becca. I’m anxious to see your line of stamps! I’d also love to win some.
Congratulations Becca…..does not surprise me at all!!!! Was wondering when someone would capture your genius and put you to work designing stamps!!! Blessings shower down on you….and us as you continue your blog, etc Enjoy your new venture!!!
Becca, I sooo love reading your blog every day and your cards, well they are just amazing and beautiful to me. My go to size card is a 6×6. Seems like every thing fits perfect on it. Congrats on designing stamps! and the chance to win them. Love what I see! Be Blessed, Ruthie
CONGRATULAIONS! I am so glad you found something you enjoy! It makes “work” so much more fun and your life so much more enjoyable. I know you will do well. You are so talented. Best of luck in your new endeavor.
Congratulations Becca, there is no one more deserving of this than you. Your stamps are beautiful just like your creations. Can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us.
What a momentous day! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am for you. You have walked a difficult path and now, good things have happened to a good person – you!. It warms my heart to see the happiness you so richly deserve finally come your way. Your first stamp is wonderful. Congratulations! And of course, you have showcased it beautifully. Continued success as you enter the next stage of your life. It looks like it’s going to be wonderful.
Congratulations on your new adventure! God does answer our prayers, as he answered mine as I finished chemo on March 1 and am in complete remission from non-hodgkins follicular lymphoma. I still have until Feb. 2013 with my maintenance treatment-Rituxan. I know how you feel with life changing, mine is on hold until I finish up all my treatments, but I know God has a plan for me. I love your blog and visit it everyday. I also love your cards.
Oh Wow…. good for you. I’ll bet your just tickled pink. I have always loved your work ever since I have found you and I will bet you will design things that I will love to buy!!
Congratulations! I love your work and m thrilled you found another way to use your wonderful talents. I love the possibilities with your new stamps !!
OH BECCA…….I am so happy for you, good things happen to those that wait. The Lord knows what is in our hearts and not does it heal with time, he takes care of our needs. You are so blessed to have all the friends that enjoy all your work and will support you, in whatever direction you take!!!!!
Love and Prayers
Congratulations Becca! My go to card size is A2.
I got so emotionally caught up writing my last note, I forgot to give you my go-to card sizes. In fact, there are two: 5 x 7 and 6 x 6. Thx for asking.
Having been with you forever, this just seems so right! Becca, you are truly a woman of God, and one who will be powerfully used. Thank you for always being transparent, and good luck with the new line. I look forward to having your stamps in my collection. Thanks for the opportunity to win some.
Wow how Cool for you. Congrats and you have always made Beautiful Cards and the tutorials on what you did have been amazing. thanks for sharing your Beautiful work and the new Stamps are awesome. thanks for the chance to win.
Forgot to congratulate you. So glad you are able to find the courage and strength to move on. Can’t wait to see your line of stamps. No doubt they will be as beautiful as all your other work.
OH! Becca, this is an honor and blessing from the Lord. Remember your card and “A new day is coming”? It ‘s here, I am so happy for you, and excited about your designs. God Bless You and thank you for sharing your blessing from the Lord…….Hugs and more hugs.
JustRight made an excellent decision in selecting you! You are an inspiration in the things you say, do, and the way you live your life. Wishing you what you share with others — only the BEST!
OMG Becca, I’m crying with happiness for you. I just am so excited. Yours was one of the very first blogs I began following and I have always admired your talent. I love JustRite products and am thrilled you’ll be a “Designing Woman” for them. I love your big cards and all the wonderful elements you include, but I must confess, my style usually runs to the A2 Size card. That’s a quicker and easier size for me, plus a friend gave me LOTS of envelopes that are just a little larger than this size so I haven’t had to by envelopes for a long time. Your joy and enthusiasm has been a great inspiration for me. Thank you, thank you for all you do.
Isn’t God just so wonderful?!!! On your darkest days and quiet moments he is there for you to restore your faith and soul. Tomorrow brings hope and a new day. Like you I’ve experienced the care taking chore and through all it’s ups and downs there was God and Amazing Paper Grace to sustain my soul and energy to find some time to smile and enjoy the beauty around me still thriving. Thank you. oh yah……the 41/4 x 51/2″ size is my fav’ to reach out to grab and get started while inspiration is still humming in my heart and brain.
Becca, thank you so much for speaking the words my heart feels. Sometimes it’s so hard to come up with the right thing to say, but this stamp set says it all. I would love to add this set to my collection. May God continue to bless you.
This just seems like the next logical step for you! You have such a talent that it needs to be shared in every way possible. My usual size cards are A2. I guess I make those more because they make the best use of my cardstock.
I was young and now I am old, but I have never seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread! Psalm 37:25

Oh Becca! I am so very happy for you! I don’t know how to put it all in words but just know that I am truly happy for you…….
Congratulations! It’s a beautiful stamp! I think I like a 6″ square card so I can put some large decoration on it and some words, maybe. This usually means I have to make an envelope so 4″ square is fine. I think quilting influences what I do with paper.
Congratulations Becca! You are so talented and so deserving of this honor that we will all soon be able to enjoy too! Your blog is such an inspiration to me and I look so forward to each and every day of seeing what you are able to dream up next! You are one amazing lady!
My favorite card size is probably 5 x 7 but I do make many 41/4 x 51/2 too!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE your new sets!
Congratulations!! Love the card you made too… so pretty and elegant!! Can’t wait to see all the new goodies coming. :o) My ‘go to’ card size is 6 x 6 inches. Gives me enough room for a nice looking layout with some of the larger die cuts and hand made flowers. :o) Great size for scenery cards too.
Oops! I forgot to mention my favortie card size is A2. Larger, longer size cards remind me of bills. Smaller cards require extra postage. So when I see an A2 size card arrive, I know it’s full of good wishes.
OOPS! the title of the card “And Good Things Is Always Coming” but either way This is a good thing. and we are blessed along with you, Because you are you…..Hugs.
First of all, wooohoooo Becca! Such exciting news and knowing your style, I’m certain your new line will be a GREAT success! It is extremely satisfying to see someone with talent and integrity rewarded and recognized, so hurrah! I’ve strayed from my usual 6″x6″ cards to 6-1/4″x4-1/2″ just because I rather like ovals and rectangles and they just seem to balance better in a rectangular field. Anyway, looking forward to all the great things to come from Becca and JRite! Hugs, Kathy
Becca, I’m glad that you have decided not to give up your blog. I’m excited to see what stamps you design as all your papercraft creations have been wonderful! I have learned so much from you on so many different levels. I guess it is true that when God closes a door he opens a window!
Oh, how wonderful for this new opportunity. You are such a blessings and an inspiration to us. Looking for to see all our new designs.
God Bless you abundantly!
Becca, I have your faith and your heart. I am so happy for you. I can’t wait to see all your designs. You will be great in your new position. I love this new stamp you created.
So happy for you, Becca! Congratulations!
Beautiful stamp I must say…. I can see your special touch in it…
I make all sizes of cards, but my favorite is 6×6 size.
Love quotes, especially ones that make the reader stop and think.
i have to say, as a papercaster and a stamper, i don’t have a favorite size card. i use what sets off the quote or casting in the best possible way.
I’m soooooo happy for you! This is a wonderful next step for you. I’m wishing you all good things to come. :)
CONGRATULATIONS Becca!!!! Wow, you are so very deserving of this…an answered prayer! I am sure you have no idea how many of us support you in all you do-HUGS, HUGS, HUGS to you!!! : ) I look forward to all that you have in store for us. Those of us here in OHIO love you!! : )
I forgot….My go to sizes are 5×7 and 6×6
Congratulations Becca! I think you really deserve this great opportunity. I have been following you for a while. Your cards are so gorgeous and unique they should be out there for everyone to see. The stamps are great and I can’t wait to see more of your creations and maybe a video or two.
Congratulations!! So exciting!! I can’t wait to see more!!
I am so happy things are starting to be at peace in your heart. I have never met you but feel as if I know you. My mom just recently passed to God’s rest. It has been hard for us all, in different ways. I have not been able to comment here for a while because my computer went ” a little bongers” and then when I got that going again, I just haven’t felt much like getting into “life” again. I think of you as a distant sister that I don’t get to see but give a little ciber hug when I can. I wish you the very best , my friend. BTW, my go to card size is what ever I happen to be in the mood for. Cyber Hug and God bless……… Denice
All I can say is that it’s about time for you to use your creative talents in the designing world. You started small with your bow maker which I love, and now you are entering the world of design. With all your wonderful talents this announcement does not surprise me. Your blog is one of my favorite ones to visit because of your creativity, your ideas, and it’s as if you are speaking to me through the internet. I wish you tons of success in this new endeavor and can’t wait to see and purchase your designs. Sending you hugs and have a wonderful week-end.
Congratulations Becca! I’m glad this opportunity has come to you, as I don’t think we’d like a world without Becca’s amazing paper grace! Good luck with all the sets, and I hope this gives you the income you need along with the joy of creating. TFS Hugs, Jess
Oh my Becca,
You remind me that good comes from all things…….life is hard, painful and sad. I too am and have been a caregiver to my father who passed while living with us. Now I am a caregiver for my husband…..my dad was easier, by the way.
I come to your site anticipating good, and once again, I am not disappointed.
We lost all our money, we are now poor, but I realize many new things about strength, having to be all things to all people and friendship and how family can be so disappointing.
I would love to purchase crafting supplies but cannot…….I am using up what I did not give away…..I am a bit too compulsive, but that also had to change. I take your ideas and use my computer to do mostly everything. You have directed me to places I did not know I had in ME!
I truly wish you the most wonderful journey and creative experience. I am sure your family is so proud of you and your strength…..
I create using your idea for the 5×7 cards, love that size….
My hugs and admiration,
Wow! Becca! So excited for you! Good luck! I make mostly A2 cards and 5X5.
Girffriend, you can’t see me, but I am doing the “Happy Dance” for you. Whoot, whoot – way to go Becca. I found my way to Our Daily Bread Designs via your posts at SCS, and have been inspired by your work since then. I doubt I would own as many dies as I do if it weren’t for you. My usual size card for years was an A2, making the best use of my CS and also because the EF’s work on them – but I so enjoy embellishing now that I find myself creating more and more 5.5 cards. Lifting you up in prayer and praise for this great opportunity.
I forgot to mention in my post that my favorite size for cards is A2. It’s the best use for 8 1/2 by 11 paper as I can make two cards out of it.
Congratulations Becca! How exciting for you! We can always trust God to meet our needs and use the gifts He’s given us… and somehow through it all, He is glorified! So happy for you!
Alright, Becca!!! Congratulations, gf, God is SO good! I haven’t been through the caretaking end, but been through lots of grief…have lost all my loved ones I grew up with by the time I was 30. And God has always been there for me through it all. He always opens up opportunities at the best time, right? We never know when it will be, but His timing is always PERFECT! I totally enjoy your work and your inspiration. My fave card size is A2 because I like to mail as much as I can…I belong to Operation Write Home for our military heroes to keep in touch with their loved ones. I think that is one way God has given me to help others.
Peace be with you!
I am so thrilled for you! God has certainly opened another door for you. I am so inspired by your creativity and I love your Vintage Filligree Fancies (just ordered!). I am a caregiver for my dad, uncle and right now for my husband. My craftroom is my “happy place'” and I love creating cards for others.
Hugs and blessings,
Congratulations on your new career. I always love your cards. I have tried to make 5 by 7 cards but I tend to make 4.25 by 5.5. They mail easily and the cardstock I use, I can get 2 cards from that. Keep up the fanastic work that you do.
Elaine International visitor(from Canada)
Love your new stamps and you are such an inspiration to all of us.
Congratulations! I think you are awesome and I wish you all the best with your new line. Thanks for the chance to win.
I am thrilled for you! I make standard A2 cards
Oh Becca HOW AWESOME for you. I have often thought that you would do well wiith a line of stamps all your own and now here you are.. Your creativity will bring some wonderful stamps to the stamping world. I am anxioulsy awaiting to see what you will design. Isn’t God just awesome?
Wow Becca, this is so exciting….not only for you, but also for us. And, I am happy that I already retail JustRite Stamps.
I am thrilled for you and I know your new line of stamps will be a huge hit.
I can’t wait to see you and the stamps at CHA and it won’t be long now.
I hope we an catch a coke or something.
I send a huge congratulations!!!!!!
Congratulations, you deserve this with the great talent you have, and also you will be doing something that you enjoy and that fills your life with pleasure. I have been checking your blog for over a year now and it is so very helpful, THANK YOU
So glad your life is falling g back into place..You have handled it with grace and shown others that Gods love can get you through the hardest times.Congrats on your stamp line..it is always a blessing to be paid for something you love to do.
I usually go with the regular 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 size. Just seems more convenient. Congratulations…Love all your work…Nancy
Congrats Becca – You have been through a lot and are a beautiful lady who makes amazing works of art with your cards. How great for you to be designing your own stamps. They are truly beautiful!!
What exciting news….I have no doubt you will be very successful. Your art is magnificent.
My go to size is the A2 size. When I began stamping I mostly began with 5×7 sizes, but found it was too much space for a beginner to work with. I do use other sizes for specialty cards, but 90% are A2.
Good luck and God Bless you….you bless and encourage so many more than you probably realize.
Congratulations, Becca!!! Love your new line of stamps. I know I’ll be orderly them soon. I am so glad that I found your site. Your cards are ALWAYS so beautiful.
My Dear Becca,
Although I do not know you personally, I feel that I do because of your lovely blogs. I always feel as if they are designed directly for me!
I know the pain that you’ve been through, having lost our only son. I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose my best friend and hubby. I’ve read your blogs with my heart and knew that you were also struggling “making ends meet” financially.
It might not mean much, but I want you to know that I TOTALLY support your decision to take this next step in your life. I’m sure it was not an easy decision, but since it’s been bathed in prayer I know our God does not give us a dream and then not provide a way. I’m EXTREMELY happy that you will continue bringing us your unique ideas. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, YOU’RE THE BEST DESIGNER I’VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO MEET – again, although not personally, that’s on my bucket list!
I noticed you new logo right away. I firmly believe that God’s gives us what we NEED when we NEED it. This has been my faith for a very long time now. I’m glad that your prayers have been answered also. I will continue to follow you as I know you will inspire me now and in the future. As to the size of cards that I like it is the standard, 5 1/2 x 4 3/4. But sometimes I get out of my comfort zone and create a really large one, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. Talk about be long winded….Thanks again.
I love the idea you will be designing your own stamps as you are truly a wonderful designer and artist! I wish you all the best in your new endeavor!Thank goodness you are not quitting your blog!!! I look forward to each one you do!!
Wow Becca congratulations! What an amazing journey you are about to embark on! the Lord will always steer you in the right path should you choose to follow Him. I am super excited and happy for you that you are now starting a new chapter in life. I know that this is where you belong, as you make the most beautiful art work I’ve ever seen. I truly mean that. I’ve seen a ton of talent and many beautiful works of art, but your work triumphs all. Congratulations again, best wishes for a very (and I know it will be) successful journey in your stamp business!
This is fantastic news and something I’ve been wondering why, with your talent, you hadn’t done before now! Yes, I know the grieving process is a long hard road that must be traveled by you alone and made so much harder with the loss of such a wonderful person. He’s shining down on you and his heart is glad! Congratulations Bekka!
BECCA! I AM IN TEARS!!!!!!! GOD IS SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SOOOO PROUD OF YOU!!!!!! YOU are a TRUE EXAMPLE of GOD’S AMAZING GRACE & POWER!!!!!!!!! Taking your gifts & nurturing them, through trials & good times & then seeing them SPROUT with SUCH BEAUTY! I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOO PROUD OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE your stamp sets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY’RE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VERY YOU! :) WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) OH, & YES, I SURE HOPE I win your stamps!!!!!!!!! :) Trials DO CHANGE YOU! They make you STRONGER! :) Yep, I AM PROUD OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! :) I think John would be proud too! AND your kids too! :) God DOES tend to do things in a BIG WAY!!!!!!!!!! :) HUGS OF CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
My go to card size? 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 It fits in an envelope of general size (Thinking of postage too…) AND it uses a decent amount of paper. I’m always looking to spread my supplies out & make them last! Especially with times so tight right now! ONLY for VERY SPECIAL occasions do I try for something larger.
I’m thankful to hear that you and Amazing Paper Grace will be with us for a long time. You have inspired most of the cards I have made. JustRite knew what they were doing when they allowed you to design a line of stamps. I will be waiting to see them each month!
I’m new to card making, so I’m not sure of my go to card size yet. So far it seems to be the A2 size. Many congratulations on your new challenge. You are as awesome designer & I’m sure your line of stamps will be beautiful! I’m so very glad your blog will continue! I am learning so much from you! Way to go! :)
I found your site a few weeks ago – I enjoy your card-making expertise AND your ministry in words. You have God-given gifts in both areas! I can’t wait to see what your creativity has come up with in stamps!
Oh Becca! I am so thrilled for you. I have long admired your work and your beautiful spirit and am thrilled you are working with JustRite Stamps!
I love this new set and its classic vibe. It is definitely you!
I don’t have a favourite card size, but probably buy the pre-folded cards and envelopes in the A2 size most often.
You are truely amazing and can embrace life no matter what it throws at you. I will try to take your wonderful thoughts to brighten up my life and live life to the fullest. One never knows what is going to happen tomorrow.
Oh Becca! You have made me SO happy!! This announcement is just what I have prayed for. YOUR work in stamps and a way for the world to share more of your originality. Thank you, so much, for joining the Justrite team. I look forward to being blessed with your wonderful stamps.
God be with you on this journey, too.

I like to make my own card base and purchase my envelopes. I’ve found the best size for me is a 5 x 7 card. It fits great into a purchased 5.5 x 7.5 card, with room for embelishments! So glad to hear you wonderful news! When I first began reading this post, I nearly cried, because I thought you had gotten a job and were going to close down your blog! Your blog is special to me, because I first found it when I was recovering from cancer. I began reading it, taking in every little detail, waiting for the day I was well enough to try my hand at making a card! That day finally came, and I’ve been following your blog and making cards ever since! Thanks for all your inspiration, Becca! I feel as though you’re a “neighbor” and old friend!
I’m a daily visitor but don’t comment often but I had to today to offer my most sincere congratulations on this wonderful venture. Wishing you every success with this new partnership. Just Rite is lucky to have you as one of their designers. Yours will be the first of their stamps that I add to my vast stamp collection. As for go to card sizes, I typically do 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch for simpler, sentiment focused cards. For those with coloured images, I typically go with square 5.5 inch or 6 inch cards.
So, so very happy for you and this new endeavor with Just Rite Stamps. Can’t wait to see all that you design, as you are the best! Also, I have to say that I am glad to hear that Amazing Paper Grace will continue. You are the first site I go to every day. You give me encouragement each day to try new things. Your kind spirit and loving heart uplift me. Blessings to you.
I am so glad that something came through so that you could continue your amazing grace blog. You make wonderful projects. They say that you will receive what you need when you need it. Praise God
I am so happy for you. Your stamps are so nice. I’ve just ordered
2 of the sets. I’m looking forward to using them.
I am SOOOO thrilled for you!! I would not be able to stand it if you couldn’t do your blog anymore since I am a TOTAL BECCA ADDICT!!!!
JustRite has really made a smart move getting you on board with them. I will be ordering anything and everything with your name on it, you can depend upon it. You are stamping magic!!!
My go to card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Only because that is the size envelope I always seem to have on hand! Plus I like doing smaller stuff. The disadvantage is that I can’t put as many layers on one card. Six, maybe seven.
Again, let me say how absolutely delighted I am for you. God is sooo good!!
Congratulations on your new direction in paper art!! The stamps are beautiful and on my wish list !
I and many others have been inspired by your courage and determination in the past few years. Weak in the knees from the stress and worry before John died you somehow managed to put one foot ahead of the other to continuing designing even from your motor home when John was in treatment in Texas.
When his death knocked you to your knees you managed to find the strength to pull yourself up and keep going. I am sure some days just getting out of bed was a accomplishment. I am so happy for you that now you are starting to find a new direction for your talents. I wish you the best of everything in the future
I make 5″ x 7″ cards because I like the larger space for design elements . For me the traditional 4 & 1/4″ x 5 & 1/2″ size is too confining
I forgot – A-2 is my go-to card size – I usually do simple cards, so this size is good.
I’m so happy for you. I like to use the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, envelopes are easy to find. Thanks for a chance to win. Thanks again.
Becca, I am thrilled for you. Congrats, but I have to say, I was on the JRS site and came across a blank area with “Amazing Paper Grace Stamps” titled on it. So I already knew this was in the works. I am so proud of your take charge attitude and can say I am one of those who knew you when. I have been with you now for a few years and just adore you. I am so glad you get to continue your journey and spread your angel wings. The crafting world is a much better place with you in it. God Bless.
How absolutley wonderful for you, Becca! Congratulations! The path God as chosen for you and you have accepted with grace is a blessing to us all. Thank you.
Becca, I am so touched. Have watched you struggle thru this venture and you have truly been a wonderful role model. Thanks so much for your honest heart and all that you do. You are awesome.
Congratulations! You will certainly do very well in your new endeavor because you put your faith in God, and He always provides. (Sometimes it takes more time than we like, but when you are ready, He provides). Life is certainly an adventure, isn’t it? Wishing you well and looking forward to enjoying more of your talent. Again, congratulations! Now–my favorite card size is 5×7.
Oh, I am so happy for you that you have been able to work through the pain and come out a stronger person. I’m also happy that you have a wonderful new adventure that brings pleasures to all of us.
Sending hugs, P
Woops, I was so concerned with letting you know how much I support you that I forgot to tell you my favorite card size and why I like it! The size I’m drawn to is 5 1/2 by 8 1/2. Large, I know, but it allows me to be really creative and include the larger Spellbinder dies and sentiments that are more than two words!
Congratulations Becca! The stamp sets are almost as beautiful as you!
Congratulations Becca – I am so excited for you and can’t wait to get all your stamps in my hands to play with. My normal size is A2 but I’ve been trying to go bigger lately. Thanks for all the inspiration that you give.
I like to use the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, although I should try larger. I am happy for your new endeavor. Thanks for the opportunity to win, they are beautiful.
How wonderful Becca! It couldn’t possibly happen to a nicer individual. You always go out of your way to give some much to those who follow you. God is blessing you mightily and providing just what you need at the perfect time! Blessings…
I prayed for Him to show me the way when they told me I was going to die. (I knew I would survive when I saw the only ONE SET of Footprints in the sand.)I know you prayed for His Revelations to you for the rest of your life—and the answer came! Your talent and Faith have been rewarded. (Never was a doubt, was there?) The best of luck in your new endeavor.
I usually make 4&1/4 x 5&1/2 cards using your guidelines. That way I can fit as much or as little of your ideas on a card I can afford to mail.
Becca, I am so happy for you! God is good! He is never late and He is never early. You have been an inspiration to me, not only with your creative skills you share with us but your walk with God and being open with your grief. This past few months have been the toughest my husband and I have ever walked. We lost my Mother-in-Law in October, my Mom the end of January and my husband’s biological Mother in March. We celebrated our first Mother’s Day without all three of them which was very painful. I’m grateful that they are with Jesus, but the pain and grief for us is overwhelming at times. I can somewhat relate to what you have been walking through. Keep your eyes on our Heavenly Father. You have been in my prayers!
My go to size to card is the 1/2 sheet card, mainly due to no extra postage to mail.
I love the two new stamp sets. Especially the saying of giving a nice thought to a friend. And the other stamp set the fact that you can add words to other words and a fantastic script.
As far as the size of the card, I love all of your pink and off and/or white cards.
I was lucky to get one of your cards with the bow maker.
You have been through so much and are deserving of this special turn in in life’s journey. I have only been with you a couple of years but I am an admirere of your gorgeous work in paper crafting.
Congratulaltions Becca, you are amazing. I have followed you for a number of years and admire your creativity. This set looks amazing! Good for you. Thanks for always being their. Mary
(((HUGS)))) Thank you for bring creativity to me everyday. God Bless you and keep you in His loving arms as you travel new roads.
Isn’t is “amazing” how God always has a plan! And it’s always to much better than ours would be,so we just have to trust! I know that you will create the most beautiful and inspirational line of stamps! Can’t wait. Yours was the very first blog I found and followed. I’d be lost without it – so glad you are able to continue. You are much loved and appreciated!!!
I am so excited for you. At first I thought you were closing your blog.. OH NO never to that. YOU are such an inspiration. I pray for you daily and I am so glad to see that things are working out for you and I know you will be a success. I would love to win your design sets. Congratulations on your new adventure. I know you will do great. 99% of my cards are 4.25×5.5 are your stamps red rubber or clear and unmounted? Hugs…
I almost always make my cards 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. It’s so much easier to stick to one size of envelope!
My go-to size is the standard A2 size = 5-1/2 X 4-1/4. I belong to several groups and do many swaps. Since postage is more for larger cards, I stick to this size.
I find that there are many things I don’t order because they are larger in size.
Card swaps are a great way to see stamps that others have. Many times I am asked or ask who makes a certain image. I think the majority of swappers stick to the 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 size for the same reasons I do.
Just wanted to add in my little note of congratulations on your own stamp designs too!! I know it will be a success and that John is smiling down at you! xo
P.S. AND OF COURSE, YOUR CARD IS GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!! :)
How fabulous for you…so thrilled ;)
Becca..these are just beautiful…please find a UK stockist!!
I like A5 cards but I also love square cards.
I typically make A-2 or a6 cards as I send 10-12 cards a week for Chemo Angels. postage really adds up and I need to keep the cost reasonable. Of course that doesn’t apply to stamps and dies! Congrats!
I am so happy for you Becca – your cards and creativity are so beautiful, that with your new line – we all will benefit! Congratulations, you deserve it! (I can totally relate to what you meant about how you just don’t fit into that old life, especially after what you have been through! I applaud you for going in a different direction – You were meant to be doing what you are now!)
My go to size of card is 6×6. I love to use many patterns and die cuts and to mat layer them, so the smaller cards just don’t to seem to work! Again, congratulations and I can’t wait to see what you create for us!
Way to go Becca, they look lovely!!!
Becca, I’m overjoyed for you! I’ve been following you for years (or is it stalking??) and absolutely love everything you do. I know your cards are very large, while I prefer the standard A2 sized card (4″ x 5.5″ or 4.25″ x 5.5″) but so many times, I’ve been able to adapt your ideas to this size.
Congratulations on this new chapter in your life! You deserve all this success!
Congratulations on your new endeavors! I am sure your designs will please us all. I love the 4.25 x 5.5 cards since I can always find envelopes for them. I look forward to seeing your creative stamps and how you present them. Thank you for your continued inspiration!
Oh be still my heart Becca….you have truly amazed me with these new stamps. All I can utter is WOW!!! God bless you on this next phase of your journey. Hugs….
Love the new stamps. Are they clear or red rubber and do you put them on acrylic blocks to use?
Congratulations on your new stamps! They are gorgeous! My go to card size is 6 x 6. Can’t wait to see more of your licensed designs!
Oh you are just too generous! Thanks for an opportunity to win this set!!!
First of all CONGRATULATIONS! Second of all I am sooooo proud of you and all that you are in the process of over coming, know its not easy. And third of all THANK YOU for the wonderful stamp sets, I can’t tell you how much I LOVE them. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!
Oh Becca…I’m so excited for you! Congratulations & best wishes, you are going to be a huge success & I will be able to say, I knew her when she first started out!
Congrats on your new endevour with stamp design! It’s great, and encouraging, to see God’s guidance & blessings in your life! I usually aim for the A2 size tho the last few seemed to have grown (hmmm, needs something more, another border or something…lol).
It is so wonderful to see this new direction the Lord is leading you in. What beautiful images, you are truly a very special and talented woman! Congratulations on your new journey as a stamp designer!!!
My go to size for cardmaking is the regular old 4 1/4 by 5 1/2, just so I don’t need a bunch of different sized envelopes.
Good for you! Im so happy for you, dont know what I would do without your post. I just love your work and wish you the BEST!
Love these new stamp sets Becca. I’m glad you have found a way to secure your future and continue creating such inspirational cards and projects.
My go to size for cards is normally 5×7 but I do enjoy making 8×8 cards for special occasions.
Oh Becca, I’m thrilled for you!! Your stamps are beautiful and have your “Becca Style” all over them. I know this is just the beginning of a journey you so deserve. Thank you for letting us share the sad with the happy!!! Congrats Becca.
God does work in mysterious ways. Love the new designs. They are so beautiful as all of your art. I will be ordering.
Best wishes for your start in stamp design. I know this will lead to more.
I am so glad that you will be continuing in the crafting ( art really) world.
All the best,
Oh congratulations on your own stamps!! I use the 4.25 by 5.5 size because the envies do not require extra postage when I mail, and 5 by 7 when I hand deliver!
Congratulations Becca! I am so happy for you and for me. God has given you a new begining and now I have the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful new stamps. I took a look at them and fell in love with the beauty and elegance of them.
I am so happy for you! Such amazing news :)
I am so glad that with all your creative talent that you have been given an opportunity to get it out there and share it in another medium. The sets you have designed are just beautiful and right up my street as a calligrapher and lover of all thing filigree :)
I am glad also that you now feel like you fit. I know exactly where you’re coming from as I am also trying to work out where I fit and I guess I’m just waiting for my ‘something good’ to pop it’s head around the corner :)
As a crafter from across the pond, my go to card size is 135mm x 135mm square. I have no idea really why I am drawn to that size, I think it’s the slight rebel in me! Cards are always considered as rectangular objects, I just like to be a little different! And I do love the perfect symmetry of a square – I explored the square/cube A LOT during my studies at university (Architecture) hmm, I think I just answered my own question huh?!
Thank you so much for all the creativity and insight you share with us all. I don’t comment on your blog as much as I should, but I do visit every single day, twice most days just to make sure I haven’t missed anything! I find it so inspiring and I like to read your little entries about where you are in your life space. I’m not good at all at sharing things like that so that is also inspiring for me :) maybe I should share more about myself on my blog and that way maybe people would feel they know me as well as I feel I know you! (without meaning to sound like a crazy stalker!)
Thank you also for the opportunity to win these beautiful stamps and I wish you all the luck in the world with your latest endeavour and I have no doubt that this will not be the last new and amazing project we hear from you this year ;)
Hi Becca. I am sooo proud of you and the courage and creative beauty you have inspired us as crafters all over the world. Blessings on you in this new adventure. I know you will excel just by the products you are creating presently. I love you flare and these stamps will be a hand in glove journey for you. We, your followers and lovers of your creations, look forward to what our Becca will give to the crafting world next. Blessings
Becca they’re beautiful stamp sets!! Congrats! Yes, the Lord works in womderful ways doesn’t He!! You are so deserving. Can’t wait to see more.
Blessings to you and yours.
WOW!!! Congrats Becca … you SO DESERVE this opportunity! Your work is impeccable and always so uplifting! When you mentioned the convention in OHIO … I felt like you were talking to me directly … I know our little ‘lunch time’ together showed me a side of Becca that I truly understand since we do share the trials/tribulations of cancer and it was nice to talk to someone who knew exactly where I was coming from!
I wish you the very best in this new adventure and look forward to seeing your new creations with your new product line. This first set is GORGEOUS!!!! Big HUGS from OHIO!
kinda thought you had already been designing the beautiful stamps!
Congratulations on your new opportunity. I will be looking forward to see your designs.
I would have picked that stamp out of 1000 as a “Becca” stamp! It’s like being able to make some “Becca” cards without having the Becca talent to go along with it. I’m so very proud of you! I’m still an 4.25×5.5 card creator for the record.
What a wonderful blog about your story! You are an inspiration in not only crafting, but in life! Thank you!
Oh Becca, what beautiful stamps. Congratulations!!! Your talent is boundless and your generosity in sharing with us your talent is even more. They can only be surpassed by your kindness. I love your blog, and even though I have not met you personally, I feel we are close friends. I pray that one day, I will have the honor and pleasure of meeting you in person. As for the preference in card size, mine is A2. I think the A2 is just the right size for any type of card.
Thank you so much for sharing with and God Bless
Congratulations Becca! when God closes a door He opens a window. And no one deserves it more than you. Can’t wait to see your new sets. My go to size for cards is the standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I have envelopes that fit that so that’s usually the size I make. I do love the square cards but then it’s extra postage and I have to make my own envelopes. Blessings to you and I look forward to seeing your new endeavors, blessed by God’s stamp of approval! Something good is always around the corner! Thanks for teaching me that.
This is wonderful news! Heartiest Congratulations!!! Wish you all the very best… going through some tough time myself and hence holding on to all the hope that was reflecting through on your blog today… thank you!
For my Card Size, I prefer 4.5 X 5.5 in. For now, its just the right size for me to decorate the front and just enough for some greetings on the inside too. I would like to try some larger cards (inspired by your ideas/cards seen earlier) eventually…
Congratulations, Becca! Woohoo! So happy for you. My usual card size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Can’t wait to see all that you do.
CONGRATULATIONS, Becca!!!!!!!! I met you in Akron in April, and you are just the sweetest person!
I usually make either 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 or 5 X 7 cards.
Thanks so much for the chance to win this beautiful set! I’d be so proud to be the owner of one of your launch sets! Best wishes with this new endeavour!!!
oh my! what a turnaround! I’m so very happy for you. These stamps are beautiful and would be a welcome addition to anyone’s collection.
O Becca, I am so happy for you. I have been following you for about two years now, but seldom comment. what a blessing this is for you. your journey has inspired me. Congrats on your new adventure. As for your question…I almost always make cards 5 1/2 by 41/4. Just because it’s easy!
What a wonderful blog! You are an inspiration in crafts, and in life! Thank you! I prefer larger cards because they seem more substantial, if that makes sense. When I receive a handmade card, I put it up on display in my house to enjoy a few weeks… And I can see a big card way better! :)
Blessings to you as you pursue this new thing in your life!
Hello Becca it’s been a long time since I visited your blog, one reason being that after 40 years of looking after our daughter with Special Needs she has now moved into Community Living and we miss her so much. It’s almost been like a ‘bereavment’ even though we still see her. We still worry about her so much too…so with this going on I lost my interest in making cards or even looking at my PC. I have now kicked myself up the butt and am getting back into it so I thought I’d pop along to your blog to see how things are with you and to see your beautiful works of art. What a surprise to see you have become a product designer….congratulations! I love the sentiment you have on this first stamp and the way you have a filigree pieces to it and especially the font with the first letter being so large..it’s brilliant! My preferred card size is 7″ x 5″ mainly because I love putting lots on my cards. Once again many congratulations on your new product and I’m so pleased you getting through such a terrible time and can see a light at the end of the tunnel. You are one Amazing lady!
Sorry for the long post.
Love Sheila xx
You are such an inspiration! I absolutely love your writing and design style. How wonderful that your talent is being rewarded in this way. I’m so anxious to get this set! My cards are 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, but my envelopes are 4 3/4 X 6 1/2 so embellishments can hang over the edges. I look forward to seeing your new posts!
Oh Becca, congratulations and praise the Lord. This is such a blessing, and you so deserve it. I would be greatly saddened if you had to stop Amazing Paper Grace, but then I’m sure the Lord knows what a blessing and inspiration you’ve been to so many that He couldn’t let it end. Wishing you great success in your new endeavor (which I’m sure you will have with God on your side).
Becca: I am so happy for” you. I look forward every day to your “Amazing Grace” and on top of that I love the Just Rite products and am proud to own a bunch of them. I know your stamps will be a big hit. Congratulations and best wishes for all you wish to attain.
Oh Becca, I am so happy for you. Of course, that is the right path for you. You have such talent and the more that get to share in it, the better. God is truly good, all the time and places us right where we fit best if we allow Him to. I just know you are going to succeed and so many will be blessed by you, yet again!
My favorite size is 4 1/2 x 6. Just a little larger but allows for more design options and no extra postage.
Congratulations Becca! As I read your post it brought tears to my eyes because of how poetic your sentences are. There are so many that feel they “don’t fit” other than here, that life and the working world has changed so much it’s hard to become something you’re not and why would you want to become some one you are not! So excited to see your new line of stamps and they are on my must have list! Soo very happy you are not giving up your blogging—it’s where I find my most inspiration! I am so very happy for you in your new adventure–I know you will do Amazing!
Almost all of the cards I do are the A2’s!
“Something Good is Always on the Way”–you go girl–show em how it’s done!!!
Becca congratulations! Love your new stamps! This is an awesome turn of events for you!
That is fantastic! Congratulations..this is perfect for you, as you inspire so many crafters, and who better to design than you, with your beautiful cards, video’s and becca bits. I am so over the moon thrilled for you. Can’t wait to see more of your work.
P.S. A2 size (4.25 x 5.5) or 5 x7. Both sizes use normal postage in the US.
WOW!!! You have been busy! Congratulations on this great opportunity and best of luck in your mew venture.
Congratulations! That is so awesome that you are now designing your own stamps! Can’t wait to see them all!!
I’m so excited about your new stamps. After following your blog for some time I know you’ll have wonderful and inspirational stamps that we’ve all been looking for. You are such a blessing to us card makers. I usually make A2 size cards but have been playing with larger ones.
Becca, First off congradulations on this great new adventure. You are such an inspiration to me. Your sharing of the hard times as well as the good times give me strength to deal with my health issues. I would wish you luck but after checking out the 1st stamp set, I know you will be a huge success. I, also find my self making 41/4 by 5 1/2 cards the most.
Congratulations Becca, I’m so happy for you. I think I have been following your blog from the beginning and can’t wait each day to see what is new and I am never disappointed. You go girl!!!
Becca, I’ve followed your blog for some time now. I don’t usually comment, but felt compelled to today as your news was so awesome. Your courage this past year has been as inspiring as the beautiful cards you make. The stamps are lovely and I look forward to your continuing story. I do a variety of card sizes, whatever the design requires, but most cards are either A2 or A7.
Congratulations on your new beginnings! I am sure that all you embark on will be successful.
You have such a great sense of design! I am so excited to see all of your designs! I’m heading over to put in by order for the Vintage Filigree Fancies set. To weigh in on your question…I am new to card making so at this point all I have done are A2 size cards. I hope to branch out as I get more secure in my knowledge,
Oh Becca – what wonderful news – thanks for sharing – all the best!
Congratulations Becca!! I am so excited to see all the wonder that this new season of your life brings you. You have, and continue to, inspire me with your steady grace and strength. Blessings to you in these endeavors! As for favorite card size, I tend to a standard A2 size. Love making bigger cards, but don’t often find/create appropriate bases for them.
Becca, I forgot to e-mail you the size of the card that I most like. That would be 5″x7″. Unfortunately I use 41/4″x51/2 to save on cardstock.
And thanks for the opportunity to win.
Bye for now, Gail
Thank you so much for everything you do and for your faithfulness. God is good and he takes great care of us but so often we feel alone. So glad that life is turning around for you and pray that will continue.
May our gracious Lord continue to bless you and comfort you.
With christian love
Lovely stamps. I’m thrilled for you to have this wonderful opportunity. Best wishes in your new endeavors!
I am so happy for you! You are truly an inspiration to me as well as many others. Your designs just blow me away! My goal in life is to try and be as good as you, both with talent & heart. I too believe that there is always good coming to us. You just have to keep your faith.
Congratulations Becca! They are fantastic!! I’m going to have a talk with our store’s owner about ordering them at CHA. She’ll be there but I won’t get a chance to go this year…bummer. As for my preferred card size, I typically
like to use my larger scraps for cards, and so the sizes will vary. But I do keep a stock of scraps folded to A2 size for making quick cards.
I tend to go for the A2 size cards- Most of the cards I need to mail and that size I find easiest for mailing.
I am so happy you are designing. Your sets are beautiful….just like yourself;-)
Congratulations Becca on this great new adventure.
Your card is absolutely gorgeious as well as the VIntage Filigree Fancies stamp set. Oh, how I would dearly love to win your first stamp sets.
Thank you for this giveaway opportunity.
Here lately I have been making mostly 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 size cards for the Operation Write Home Organization other wise for family, friends, etc., I make the 5×7 size cards.
your faith brings us all inspiration. congrats on your debut. enjoy the next phase of what is truly a wonderful life.
OH MY. . .that is my all time favorite quote, and now I can pre-order Becca stamps at JustRite Paper Crafts, one of my top 5 FAVORITE sites to order from. . . .am I a happy girl or what!!!
Becca my order has been placed.
Your card is gorgeous! From your paper, to your bows and the embellishments are just breath taking!!!
I can’t wait to purchase a Becca card from Etsy!
I hope you know that I love your blog site and everything you write about. Your article about weeding your garden sure has stuck with me, and I’ve realized it’s something I so badly need to do in my life! Thank you for the courage you have to post topics that ALL of us feel and are sheepish to bring up.
May you continue to be Blessed both in your personal life and with your new career.
My hope is to someday be able to meet you in person, give you a hug and see you work first hand. . . .come on out to the Pacific Northwest and visit us crafters!!!!
Congratulations and best wishes as you begin this new life adventure! The stamp sets are Amazing, just like all of your work. I choose to make larger sized cards, like you do. Thanks for inspiring me and so many others by generously sharing your talents. It was so special to meet you in Akron, Ohio. Wishing you much success!
Heartfelt congratulations Becca, I couldn’t be happier for the success you’ve achieved! The sentiment on your card just melts me – it’s so endearing!
I always make A2 cards,simply because I donate most of the cards I make to OWH and that’s the size they ask for.
Congratulations Becca!! I don’t think there is anyone more talented and and what a wonderful opportunity for you. Your work is exceptionally beautiful, always, and I am sure your new designs will also be. Love the two sets I saw. As for my go to size – it’s 4.25″x5.50″ as in can make two cards from one sheet of paper.Again, congratulations!
Oh Becca!!! i am so happy for you! You have worked really hard and now you are being rewarded for all of it. God is GOOD. I love, love, love the new stamp set!I would have to say 5″ X 7″ because I like lots of embellishments and layering – a carry over from my scrapbooking style. I have even been experimenting with 5.5″ x 7.5″ since you gave the hint to use a padded mailer to send them. It costs a bit more, but is well worth it for the card to arrive intact at its destination. Hugs and Blessings as always and again CONGRATULATIONS dear blog friend.
CONGRATULATIONS! How wonderful that is for you. I prefer making A2 cards. Thanks for the chance to win such an exciting give away!
Congrats on your new venture…I agree 110% with you that good things are always around the corner if you open yourself up to God’s grace and gifts. So happy to see you are doing just that.
Your new designs are beautiful, and I look forward to all that you design. I forgot to mention earlier that my favorite card size is 4.25 x 5.12. Once in awhile I will do a 5 x 5, but not anything bigger.
Congrats on your new career – can’t wait to buy your stamps. They look divine.
My fave card side is A2 as they are easy to mail.
I know you will enjoy and have fun as a stamp designer.
Another AMAZING surprise, girlfriend! Your new stamps are truly special. I can see why you’ve been busy of late!! When I was making cards for co-workers and everyone needed to sign them, I made 5×7″ cards. However, after 6 years, I stepped down from that obligation. So now, my “go-to” size is 4.25×5.5″ simply because of the convenience. I do love square cards, but I don’t like paying the extra postage. I will say that 5×7 feels too big, and the other feels too small.
I am so stoked for you!
Congrats to you and this is a richly deserved next step.
My favorite card size is the standard A2.
Brilliant news Becca – I am so thrilled for you and wish you well in your new venture. Love your new stamp sets and I’m so pleased we will continue to be treated to more of your stunning inspiration. God IS good..
My go to card size is half A4 although I tend to make 8×8 or larger for my family.
Congrats! LOVE the stamp set, can’t wait to see the rest. My go to size is a
A2, because you get two cards from a 8-1/2×11 piece of paper. I just started making easel card which are 6×6-but I have to make envelopes for these so don’t think I’ll be making too many, also with the A2 size envelopes are .10 a piece at Staples! Something good is always on the way, keep on beleiving and trusting God. thanks for sharing. big hugs
Congratulations on your new career. It is wonderful to see you doing what you love and fitting in at the same time. My fave card size is A2 … although I do occasionally make 5 by 7. A2 seems the best use of my cardstock, though. Continued success to you Becca.
Congratulations!!! Becca, good things come to those that wait. Prayer is a wonderful thing we have. Thank God for that. In time things will get easier Becca. it’s been four years since I lost my son and sometimes the darkness never goes away. Now I’m working on getting out of the house it’s a lot easier said than done. Bless you Becca in your new undertaking. I’ll continue to pray for you. As always Becca. TFS!!! :-D
Becca, What an amazing post! I am so beyond excited about your new path! Your new stamp sets are delish!! You are such a wonderful example of what is good in this world! As soon as I am done writing this, I am going to sit down and see if I can rework this months’ budget to sneak in those gorgeous stamps! ;-) I already have several ideas spinning in my head for the background stamp. You and your faith are such a blessing!
I have always done the A2 size card, but just recently have done a few 5x 7 when I couldn’t get the idea in my head to fit the smaller size.
Congratulations you deserve it. I visit your blog nearly every day but do not always leave a comment. I love what you do with all the different Nesties and punches you sure have a talant for it. The stamp designs are very nice, but I am not much of a stamper, I like doing embrodery on most of my cards. I don’t think you would remember me ,I taught the box to hold cards with a note book etc.at the Michael’s store in Panama City at the stamp club meeting a few winters ago. I don’t go to Florida any more for health reasons. I love seeing what you desiign. Good luck in what ever you do.My usual card size is 4.5 x 5.5 some times if it is for a special person I make 5×7.
Sorry its so long.
Good luck in what ever you do.
Gravenhurst, Ont. Canada
Congratulations on your new venture!! I look forward to your many gorgeous ideas! My favorite card size to make is A2. Thanks for a chance to win your new product!
Congratulations Becca! You have done a lot of soul searching to arrive where you are and to be able to plan for your future. Your creative work will continue to grow.
I absolutely love your card today….. the words and design are beautiful!
Congratulations on your new road of creativity….. Just Right made the ‘right’ decision when inviting you to join their team.
My favourite card size is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2.
Thank you for your perseverance.
Becca, this is truly amazing!!! Wonderful!!!! I’m jumping up and down with excitment for you!!!! just went and saw your Wonderful line of stamps and I see them being used daily not once or twice , and I love your “logo” Amazing Amazing!!! I’ve been reading your blog since you started and you’ve come such a long way, you’ve helped me though some tough times ,its because of you that I have found so much peace when I was down, I am so happy for you. T
Hi Becca, A huuge congratulations with your new venture here. If anybody deserve this, it´ll be you, and the image shown here is absolutely gorgeous, and I´m sure the rest is too, as everything else you ever touch is. You ARE amazing girl, and I´m really proud of, what you´ve achieved sofar, this is so cool. I´m already a really big fan of Just Rite stamps and of you, so this can only be awesome, and I can´t wait to see all there´s comming here soon.
Just go for it girl, you so deserve it.
I must admit, that about the cardsize, I´m going for all kinds of weird sizes and just loves to create something noone else is doing LOL, so mine has all different kind of sizes both square and rectangels, shaped and rightt now I´m into all kinds of different folds and figures, so name it and I believe, I´ve tryed it LOL. And best of all, I just love it.
Biiiiiiig warm hugs from Denmark
That is so exciting, so happy for you and the choice you have made, it just wouldn’t be the same without your beautiful creations :)
I usually make the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 size, I mail most of my cards and that is a good size to send and if I can keep it fairly thin I don’t need extra postage.
Congratulations and best of luck to you. I know you’ll be very successful! My go to card size is always 4.25 X 5.5. Always! I can buy standard envelopes in that size as well and they’re not too expensive if I stick to that size. A box of them at Staples is $10. I do vary the layout from landscape to portrait, but always the same size. 5 X 7.5 feels too large to me and I rarely if ever would venture to a larger size. Thanks for the chance to win!
Congrats on this new adventure! Your work definitely fits in. I always look forward to your latest creations. While I try to mimic them in some way, I’m never at your level of work, but it’s nice to try. It’s going to be fun to see where this leads. Enjoy the ride. It should be fun.
God is so good and so very patient sometimes as he truly knows exactly what we need and when we need it even if we do not see it ourselves for He truly sees our potential when all we see are brick barricades. Congratulations on the new stamp designs!! Way to go, Girl! You deserve it after all you have been through. Call it Creative Therapy :o)
FANTASTIC! I am so happy for you. Love the sets. You know what we all like. As far as card sizes… I make all sizes but the majority of the ones I make for friends and family are either 6.25″ x 4.50″ or 5.5″ x 4.25″. I make cards for Operation Write Home so I make those 5.5″ x 4.25″ as that is the size they need for shipping. 99.9% of my cards are mailed and I pay extra postage just so they will not go through a machine so making the smaller cards also keeps the postage charges lower (even though I spend a fortune on mailing as it is.) Again I am thrilled for you. You deserve it!
Oh, Becca, I am beyond thrilled for you. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Just the Right Words set as it’s so versatile and the script is something I’ve been looking for since forever! I’m so very excited that this has come into your life at this time, just when you need it most, even though you may not even have realized it. God’s timing is the perfect timing~~always. Congratulations and sending encouraging thoughts and words your way.
(BTW, I don’t know how I ever lived without my bow maker!)
Congratulations Becca! Congratulations on being able to navigate through everything that has been thrown in your path and now on your amazing journey you are ready to set out on! What a wonderful new career. It seems to be perfect for you and all your artistic talents.
Can’t wait to see all your new creations! :)
I am so happy for you. Myself and my two sisters always look forward to what your creation is for the day and what inspired you.
I look forward to seeing you new line of stamps. I know they will be a great addition to my JustRite ones.
Becca, I am so thrilled for you! You certainly deserve this. You are extremely talented and very inspirational. Best wishes to you with your new endevors.
OMG Becca!! I’m soooo excited for you I’m crying!! You honestly deserve the best!! You’re one of the most amazing people I “know”. Your talent is just amazing. I wish I had half the talent you do. Congrats to you!!!
Oops! Forgot to talk about the card size I use most. I actually love the square 6″ x 6″ cards and even though the postage is more, I seem to go to that size so I can add lots of cool ‘stuff’ to it and make nice bows.
Good Job Becca, see how many people commented. That is how much we all appreciate you. You have a kind heart and that is all that matters.
Congratulations, I will be sure to pick some up if I see them in our local store.
Congratulations Becca! No-one is more deserving!
You will be an asset to their team!
Becca – SOOOOO happy for you ! I think it is just wonderful that you are a designer of stamps now, how great for all of us ! ! For card sizes I do all kinds but gravitate to 5.5×4.25 for mailing cards and 6.5 x 5 if I have more I want to put on the card, those get hand delivered unless they don’t have much embellishments. Again – congrats on your new venture. (My bow maker is in the mail as we speak, I’m so excited!)
Oh Becca, I’m so proud of you! I just knew God had a plan for you! He isn’t finished with us yet. I’m still looking for my place even though I am now retired. These stamps are stunning and I would love to win! My favorite size is 6 X 6. Perfect for a layout and diecuts and handmade flowers!
So Love love love you stamp set …. One look and I placed an order (like I even NEED more stamps) — You go girl! I am so inspired by you and your blog / life, that I look forward to each and every post. thank you for listening to your heart!!
Hugs to you
PRAISE THE LORD! All good things come to him/her who waits.
Congratulations – As always you will do an excellent job at this, and I am
so thankful that God saw fit to put you in this place.
Becca, that is wonderful news! Congratulations on the new job! I almost always stay with the A2 size. It is just easier for me and I have my ream of paper cut at Marco’s when I am home there. Congrats again and happy stamp designing!
I don’t mind long blogs because they’re usually full of interesting information – like this one! The only problem with this one is that I was holding my breath for quite a time until you said the Amazing Grace blog would continue. Very selfish, I know, but am thrilled nonetheless that you aren’t opting to become a solely behind-the-scenes creator or diverting your energies to some unartistic endeavor. Am also thrilled for you that your talents for creating beautiful things are recognized and worth more than pats on the back. Admirers are needed for satisfaction, but money is needed to buy sustenance. Congratulations, Becca, and I do wish you a happy future no matter where it takes you. As an aside: When I looked at your card, I admiringly whispered ‘Becca, Becca’ ala Cary Grant’s ‘Judy, Judy.’ perhaps subliminally suggested by the scalloped edge, divided by the bow, looking like two capital “B’s.” :-)
SUCH good news!! I, along with all of your other readers have missed your daily and sometimes twice daily inspiration over the last year as you grieved your unspeakable loss. It is amazing how creative things can carry us through difficult times and then we have to put them aside for a time. When I began reading today’s post I nearly gasped when I read you might not blog any longer. You have been my inspiration for many years – if I only open one blog, it is yours. But, joy quickly replaced that sadness when I read the GOOD news!! WOW! It is remarkable how God provides for us if we are willing to go along with HIS timetable. So thankful He has blessed you with this new venture – and us as well!! Looking forward to a creative future!! Blessings to you!
so happy for you, the stamp sets are just like you, elegant and pretty close to perfect. as i’ve mentioned before, my DH is very ill with a rare, aggresive cancer, he is finishing up the intensive chemo part (only the beginning) and is currently doing as well as possible thank God. even tho he just got back from a 5 day hopital session and is throwing up everything righ tnow. i’ve been surfing for distraction and your blog has been one of the highlights of each day. so many beautiful things. thank you and good luck in your future endevors
Becca, Congratulations!!!!! What an accomplishment. I wish you the best in this adventure. You will blossom. As for my favorite size card it has to be 6X6 because it works with my 6×6 paper pads and even when using 12×12 I get better use of my papers. Thank you for sharing all your creations with us. Cyndie
OMG Becca, what great, exciting news – both for you, and for all of us! When I first read that you were offered a line, the first words out of my mouth were “Oh my gosh” – so, figured that was the most appropriate way to begin this post. This is fabulous news, and love the sets you have designed so far – look forward to many more to come. Thank you for the chance to win and congratulations with hugs! Tina
You are such a blessing to view! Your card inspire me!
Congratulations Becca! Your stamps will definitely be making their way into my stamping world, they are amazing just like you. I have enjoyed being a fan of yours for quite awhile now and will continue to visit daily. I see nothing but success for you with and your association with JustRite Papercrafts. As for my favorite card size it would be A2 but I do like to also make square cards. Blessings to you for all you do.
You are AWESOME, Becca. Your faith has brought you through the storm, and I so admire your endurance in getting to this point. God Bless You!
Congratulations!!! Your post made me smile, cry, and then smile some more! I wish you success in your new endeavors…you deserve it!!
Becca, you have a kind heart and a warmth to your postings that makes everything feel “soft and cozy”. Thank you for all you do and congratulations on your new beginnings. My usual size card is a 4.25×5.5″ That just seems easiest with an 8.5×11 sheet of paper. It is also the size that we’ve always made in the stamp camps that I go to. As the years have passed, and I add more embellishments to my cards, I often use a 5×7 base as well but most are still the original.
Congratulations, Becca! Beautiful sets. So happy for you!
A2 is my go to card size.
Dear Beca, I just recently stumbled on your amazing site so I don’t know the story behind your grief. I suspect you have lost someone very dear to you and for that I am sorry. Your faith is evident in all you say and do. I love your new stamp line and hope the venture is very successful for you. I like the A2 size cards as the cost of postage is better but will hand deliver the larger ones. I am celebrating my birthday and thank our Father for all he has done for me. When you are a Christian and walk the faith llife is truly Amazing. God Bless you and keep you safe. Marge
Becca – congratulations on your new stamp line!!! They are so beautiful! And I am so happy that this came along for you at this time just when it was supposed to!
Congratulations! What well-deserved and amazing news! I prefer standard cards for mailing, but I like to make square cards best. :-) Beverly
Becca, So excited for you. When I first started reading I was getting the feeling that you were done with your blog and fantastic cards. Almost had a tear come to my eye! Then, as I read on, I was so pleased to see you are not only going to continue on but are also designing your own line. WhoooWho! I love all your samples and your tutorials are absolutely the best. Keep the faith, it will pull you through every time.
Best wishes for your new endeavor.
My heart sings for you! and me too! Hee hee. I am delighted this opportunity came at this time. I do believe the Good Lord knows what he’s doing.
As far as size, A2. Best for postage. My second choice is 5×5. I rarely make a card other than A2.
Thank you for sharing in this happy occasion.
Becca, we always knew you would “land on your feet”…..the Lord has, indeed, great plans for you. And you haven’t disappointed!!!!
I make big cards…..5 1/2 by 6, etc.
Thank you for being YOU!!! What a blessing you’ve been to MY life as I have followed you the past years.
I am so happy for you Becca! I know your struggle has been a long one. You are rising like a Phoenix!! You have definitely found your niche and all of us will enjoy your talent and the fruit of your labor even more. Love your new stamp :)
You have been an inspiration to me daily. You are at the top of my favorite bloggers. You have such a sweet spirit…One that I believe is unquenchable. So many people believe in you and I’m sure that you are lifted up in many a prayer! You feel like a dear friend. Big Hugs oxo
Congrats Becca on your new project with Just Rite. My very first stamp was a Just Rite stamp. I like your stamp set very much, it seems that it can be used in so many ways. My go to card size is A2, that is the only size card I make.
Congratulations, Becca! What a great opportunity at just the right time. I look forward to seeing all your future designs. I’m sure I’ll be buying some to use on my go to card size, A2.
Wonderful news; I’m so happy for you! It makes me think of a quote someone once said to me; “good things come to those who wait”. Not that you were waiting for anything but with your faith, prayer and the great support of family and friends, something was waiting for you! I love the elegant images in your first set of stamps! I’m looking forward to following you along in this new endeavor!
How wonderful for you, Becca! I love this avenue for you and it is such an answer to your prayers of doing what you love and excel at doing! I’ll be keeping tabs on what you design and probably place an order or two, in the future :)
Thank you for a chance to win and we’re already winners with the wonderful stamp designs you will be putting out :)
~ Amanda :)
Oh wow Becca this is so awesome. I am so proud of you! Your patience has certainly been rewarded. WTG girl.
I can’t wait to see everything.
Oh my go to card size is 6×6
Have a wonderful weekend sweetie!
My favorite card size is 4.25 x 5.5. Envelopes are always available, and you use half of an 8.5 x 11 sheet of card stock. xoxoxoSusan
You blog has been an inspiration to me. I am so glad you will be continuing the web site as your life expands in other directions. Good luck to you in your new endever. P.S. I use size A2 as it is 1/4 standard sheet but as my spellbinders collection grows and my collection of GRAND sets expands, I am creeating more larger cards.
WOW, Congratulations!. I visit your blog almost everyday but just don’t always have the time to leave a comment. I am one of those caregivers too, dealing with my hubby’s Cancer but thanks be to GOD we are doing well, taking one day at a time. Becca, I can always count on your blog for inspiration at just the right time, sometimes is it a new creation or sometimes your sharing your heart. I am so very glad you will still be here with Amazing Paper Grace. I would so love to win your set and can not wait to see what else you come up with. Thanks so much Just Rite Stamp, and thanks Becca.
I like to use a 6 x 6 for larger sentiments, my second choice is a 5 x 6 or 5 x 5. Sometimes I have a hard time finding envelopes. Sure would love a source for them.
Becca – I am so happy and proud for you. You are an amzing person – so much talent in one person. Your work is amazing so I know your stamps will be too. God does amazing work – keep believing and all will be well.
My go to size for a card is 5×5 but I also use 4.25×5.5.
thanks for the chance to win,
Barb S (FL)
Becca – I have followed you through all your trials and am so happy to see you have emerged so strong. You’re such an inspiration. God bless you in all your endeavors. Can’t wait to start buying your stamps. A2 is what I usually make because it is so convenient with my cardstock.
wow, becca! how fun to be a designer. i’m so glad some of your ideas are being seen by a broader audience. from all of the comments you may be giving away alot. the sets are great. i already have a favorite… how is that posible? i find that i make a2’s the most. partly because so many things are geared to them. i’m so happy for you and hope you explode on to the scene with a bang! congrats!
hey becca awesome news!!!! love your new line of stamps…if anyone deserves a happily ever after it’s you…you ROCK!!
Well, Congratulations! What a wonderful, natural progression for you. Your new stamps are beautiful and so is your new logo. Love the frilliness! I usually make A2 cards, but I love 5×7 and 6×6. Depends on what I’m making. Know that’s not a lot of help, but I work with what I have, so size varies! Good luck and blessings on your new line. I know you’ll do a wonderful job.
Oh my word Becca!!!! I have always called you the Queen of dies to my friend and now …. Craft Product Designer….you deserve the very best.
I always check in on you but I am bad at leaving comments.
You truly have a gift with paper and words you are blessed .
hugs from Texas
God closes a window and opens a door; you are proof of that. I am so happy for you; you are so talented and I look forward everyday to checking in on your blog to see one of your incredible creations and wonderful tutorials! I love, love, love this stamp set and will definitely be getting one.
By the way, I bought your bow maker and love it; perfect bows every time.
Congratulations! Many good wishes on all of your journeys! I believe that your new line will be wonderful and fun. I thank you for all the ideas you have shared, set out all of the instructions with pictures as well as all of the video instructions….how cool is all of this! I think it is called BECCA at AMAZING PAPER GRACE! THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
I like the A2 card size because it is so user friendly, cost effective for mailing and for making the A2 envelope(I make all of my envelopes). However, I do deviate if I want to design something needing a larger size card and envelope.
Proud of you, Becca! Keep up the great sharing, designing and friendships.
Congratulations to you Becca. You deserve a break after all you have been through and the stamp sets are perfect. As for card size, I prefer the A2 card size. I occasionally make the larger ones, but they just seem too big to me, even though that is the size you see in stores. But, in order to fit in everything you put on your beautiful cards, they need to be bigger. Keep plugging.
How amazing is that.. Congratulations and am so excited for you.. Grief is a journey few of us know about until we walk the path… I am so happy for you.. god Bless you in all your upcoming endeavors…..I usually use 4:25X 5:5
Congratulations Becca! I am so excited for you! You are so brave and inspirational!
My go to card size is 5.5 x 5.5. Square cards mostly.
Congratulations on your new venture. It sounds perfect for you and know you’ll do great with it. Looking forward to seeing all the new things you will have to offer. As far as size goes. I used to be a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 but lately I’ve been using 5 X 7 or 6 x 6 more. That size gives me more room to do extra things with. Thanks for a chance to win one of your great prizes. Edna
This opportunity couldn’t happen to a nicer and more gifted person! I’m so happy for you. Your stamp sets are truly beautiful and I can’t wait to put my order in.
Congrats Becca, I feel so happy for you. You are truly blessed with a wonderful talent and now we can share this talent, hands on.
Becca I am so happy for you! You trusted in the lord and he will never let you down. Congrats!
I usually make A2 size but also use 5×7 and 6×6. I think I like 6×6 the best.
Thanks for the chance to win!
Many congratulations on this wonderful development in your career – I follow your blog but do not always leave a message – today is one day I could not miss sending my wishes with so many many others who appreciate your brilliance, skill, kindness and generosity in sharing your crations. Well done and deservedly so. Continued goodness and wishes from Dublin Ireland.
This opportunity couldn’t happen to a nicer and more gifted person! I’m so happy for you. Your stamp sets are truly beautiful and I can’t wait to put my order in. My favorite size card is A6. I like more real estate for my cards, and I also like I can mail it regular post.
Wow, God Bless you and your talent! I’m so excited to try your new stamps, they’re beautiful.
My go to size is 4.25″ x 5.5″ because I make my own card bases and it’s a simple 1 score, 1 cut to get 2 card bases….plus envelopes are abundant in that size.
Thanks for the chance to win.
I am very HAPPY for you, Becca.
I hope you stamp line goes far above what you could ever expect!
I don’t post every time but I do read your post everyday!
Your blog has got me through some many sleepless nights, (and still do)
My heart ached for you because my Sweetie had passed away on Halloween day 2007. My Sister passed away 10 months before that. My husband went to work one day and never came home again.
My sister was sick for four years, My two Sisters and I never left her side for that long 4 years. I think this was God’s way of getting me prepared for what he knew was to come.
Then a year ago this passed February my Sister’s husband passed away with cancer as my sister did.
Even with all that said, I can’t say that I know how you are feeling or have felt.
I am happy for you that you have a very busy blog so you have a reason to get up every day.
And now a stamp line, that is wonderful! You deserve every bit of it.
One thing that makes me very HAPPY is that nothing is going to change on your blog and it is still going to be here. I love going back to look at older post.
My go to card size is 5×6.5. I like a card that is just a little bigger than the standard A2 size.Can’t wait to see what all is in store for you with your new stamp line!!. I love just rite stamps and have several sets, they are great.
Congratulations Becca on you new journey. I wish the best for you. I prefer 4.25 x 5.5 since it I can cut 8.5 x 11 paper in half and have a quick card. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
Best wishes with your new line of stamps, Becca. You’ll do great!
Congrats Becca. You are so deserving. What a wonderful way to continue bringing your inspiration to us. Enjoy the ride! I usually use a 4.25″x5.5″ card. Envelopes are easy to find and ready-made, and cutting a letter sized piece of cardstock allows me one half for the card backing, and the other half to cut mats and layers for it. Thanks for the chance to win your lovely set. And best of luck!
Becca, Congratulations on your new “fit”. I just know you will be a winner in each and everything you set your mind to. I love seeing all the beautiful creations you come up with. Your art is just amazing. You go girl! Keep up the good work. Everything always works out in the end that is why we have to keep the faith.
Thank you for the opportunity to win a set of your beautiful stamps.
Congratulations on your new adventures. I love your designs. Also, love Justtite stamps. Mostly I make A2 cards. So glad you are keeping your blog.
This is GREAT news. Your first sets are beautiful just like you are in spirit.
Congratulations….What a BLESSING;such an opportunity.I am so very,very happy for you.Remember where GOD LEADS, we should follow.I’m thrilled that you are returning to life because life goes on.Much love and happiness.
Becca, congratulations and best wishes on your new stamp line! I know that you’ll do great with this. I forgot to mention that my ‘go to’ card size if 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 since it allows me to get 2 card bases from one 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of cardstock and it also fits into a standard invitation size envelope.
Becca I am so glad for you! I want say thank you for all the times you have helped me through something, with your show of faith. I have often wondered if the different companies who you have been blessed by you using their product have really appreciated how much you do for them with your beautiful work. Congrats and I will be watching to see all of the exciting things to come.
I do not really have a go to size, I seem to start with a Die or stamp and keep going till I am happy. So it depends on how much I add or how simple I can manage to keep it. Thank You Becca
Spectacular News!!!! Congratulations! I am so excited for you! I usually use 4.25X 5.5.
Congratulations Becca,so happy for you.Your new stamp is absolutely lovely and know the ones that follow will be as well.So enjoy your new adventure, thanks for the chance to win and may God continue to Bless you.
As many others have said – CONGRATULATIONS!!! You are so talented, creative and giving! You are so willing to share you talents and instructions with everyone; I follow your blog, but unfotrunately don’t always leave a comment. I usually make A2 size cards as well as ones that will fit in a business size envelope (4-1/8″ x 9-1/2″) since they are readily available.
I wish you well with your new stamp line!!
Becca – First off congratulations on your new endeavor! Just Rite couldn’t ask for a better designer than you. How exciting – now if you can imagine it you can make it. In the past I have always made A2 size cards, but recently I have started to enjoy the larger 5″ x 6 1/2″ size. Have a little more area to decorate. Thanks for an opportunity to win your lovely new stamps. So glad that you are having doors opened for you – God is watching over you!
Becca, I am so happy for you…I have not found anyone more talented than you on any of my blogs! May God continue to bless you.
Wonderful news. So happy that you’ll be continuing yor blog. It’s the only one I make a point of visiting every day. Love all your work, and the stamps are fab!
Becca, I have been following you for some time now (several years). This is the first time I have commented. I have loved all of your offerings and have purchased a few stamps, etc. Thanks for all your tallent.
Becca I’m so pleased that you have found a new life that it features your gifts and talents from God. He knew the plans he had for you and now you know part of them also. I have 3 friends who have just begun their first year as a widow and it’s given me insight into their needs because you shared your journey. Thank you for being a friend to people you don’t know. Your stamps are lovely and reflect your style. May you be blessed in your new life and may you continue to bless through your work. My cards are marketed at a local farmer’s market. I find the 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 size sells best. I think people don’t like the 5 x 7 because they have to write more. ;-) (I leave most of them blank inside for personal notes.)
When I first looked at your beautiful card I saw a “B” above and to the right of the bow and another “B” below and to the right of the bow and I thought “Becca, Becca, you’ve done it again.” God has truly blessed you and us. It’s very hard to choose an ideal size for cards as some lend themselves to a larger base while others need to be smaller. I know this doesn’t really help you, but we can’t live with either-or. We really need both.
I am so glad to hear that you are doing your own stamps. You are very talented and very caring. It’s a perfect combination for designing. I’m also happy to hear that you are continuing your blog. It is a blessing to many!
Oh Becca, I am so proud of you for taking the next step. I will be at CHA representing A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts. Hopefully I will see you there.
Congratulations on your line of stamps! I’m sure they will be very popular. My most-used card size is the standard A2 – 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Thanks for the chance to win!
Becca- this set is just beautiful and one can tell this is your pride and joy. You are blessed to have this talent and the opportunity and we are blessed to have you share it with us.
Wow, Becca! That’s fabulous news! You have been such an inspiration to me ever since I discovered your blog. Your work is so caring, and you always lift my spirits when I’m having a down day. Can’t wait to get my hands on these super stamp sets & dies. The ideas are flying in my head already. Getting my order in ASAP.
My favorite card size is 4.5″ X 6″. It’s just the right size to fit a bit more embellishments and most of the Spellbinder labels, and for layering on borders and such. And unless I add TOO much embellies, it doesn’t cost more to mail. (It’s considered ‘invitation’ size.) I can get 2 cards out of a 12 x 12 paper with enough left for labels and such. The 4.25 x 5.5 often seems too small, although I do use it sometimes, and a 5 x 7 is usually too big.
Love and Blessings to you in your new ‘career’!
I am very glad that you are following your heart and doing something that makes your heart glad. It sounds like you have studied the pros and cons and prayed about it. Enjoy your new venture. I do not have a favorite sized card because of the different cards I make: explosion boxes, forever cards, etc. Thanks for keeping up your blog and am waiting for your etsy store (when you are ready).
Becca, I’m so glad to hear your exciting news! I am thrilled that you will be designing! You are such a blessing! I like the standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ because it is more economical and sells better.
Way to go Girl!!! How exciting to have your own stamp line!!! Love these new sets, can’t wait to see what you come up with next!!! The Lord always takes care of each of us in his own special way!!!
I am so happy for you!! But God NEVER fails!! God Bless you!!!
Oh my, when I went to comment after your email hit my inbox, there’s already over 300! WOW! Well, it would be nice to win, but even if not, I still want to say “WAY TO GO!”. I’m proud for you that this opportunity has arisen, and I know you’ll do great things. This set is unbelieveable, so elegant, so vintage, and so classic. Would be lovely to have in my collection; thank you for your hard work in designing…and my heart sunk when I read the part about letting the blog go. (would understand if you had to!) But I’m pleased another avenue opened for you, and hope that it will provide what you need it do. Thanks for your sharing memories, and all the lovely creations you place here so often. God Bless.
I’m so excited about God leading you on a new journey! I’m hoping to meet you at CHA in about a week. My go to size for most cards is the regular 51/2×4/1/4, but often find my card size getting larger depending on elements.
Becca, congratulations! I’m so excited for you– and all of us who will benefit from your creativity! I am fairly new to card making so don’t have a favorite size, yet. Most of mine have been 4 in. X 5.5 in. So far, though. :)
What wonderful news. Just goes to prove that when God closes a door he opens a window. You got a whole wall of windows! Congratulations!!!
Becca, I am truly happy for you! You are a very talented lady and the crafting world NEEDS your inspiration. Your new stamp designs are lovely. I hope that us folk over the pond don’t miss out on trying to purchase these goodies :) My go to size of card is 6″x6″ simply because it’s a nice size for all occasions.
By the way, I found this post to be very touching. I should try and believe in your philosophy and hope that something good is on the way for me too. Best wishes x
Congratulation! I wish you many blessings in your new adventure.
Becca The DESIGNER!!!! Doesn’t get any better than that, love your new stamps congratulations. We are all proud of you for continuing, with love xx
I’m so glad you decided not to shut down your blog. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t get my daily Becca hit! I’m excited for you and your new endeavor and wish you the best. I know you will be successful. I firmly believe that God has a plan for each of us and we will know what to do accordingly, and I believe you are touched by God.
As far as making cards – I make any size that my design dictates. I’m so flexible. Thanks for giving me a chance to win, however, I will let you know that I have NO luck in drawings! I could be the only name in the pot and somehow it would get lost. LOL!
What a blessing for all of us! And what a perfect solution for you (of course it’s perfect, all blessings touched by Him are perfect).
I’m a card maker whose standard size is 4.25 x 5.5, but am not ruled by that. If I want to make an endless fold card I go for 6 x 6, or if I simply want a larger card, I just go until it’s the right size to hold the image I want to make (I’m a little rebel short and stout! :-) ). I’ve been known to go wild with 3 x 3’s when I’m in the inchie sort of mood. Not much help, am I?
I’m so happy for you Becca.
All my best,
Hi, Becca, I have been following your blog for sometime now and I also lost my best friend my husband 12 years ago. I will never stop missing him as much as I do. I find getting older that it can be over whelming some days. Heart problems started 20 years before he died. He also had cancer at the end. Well enough of that. Your cards are wonderful and of course I have used your ideas many times. I also sent for a Peg Bow Maker that is going to get a workout tomorrow. Please accept my congratulations on your new venture. Judy
Best Wishes with your new endeavour. These stamps are gorgeous!
Oh Becca!! I am so so happy for you!! What an exciting opportunity for you..how perfect!! Isn’t our God so awesome! He had the perfect place for you…He knew where you belonged and when the perfect timing would be! God bless you as you enter into this next phase in your journey!
Wow! This is the best news ever! I am so glad you are venturing into designing, your ideas are unbelievable and I truly believe this is a calling for you. I understand the pain and that “coma” feeling and what it is like when you “wake up” and realize life still goes on and you have to keep going because that special loved one would not want you to fall in the cracks. Best of luck on your new venture and I have a good feeling this will be very successful! Congrats and yes! i LOVE THE STAMPS!!!!
I really am happy for you, Becca. I too believe that there is always something good to come if you wait. That card is really something and it is just so out of this world gorgeous. Good luck on your next adventure! Everyone will be backing you with good wishes and support.
Hi Becca, I am so happy for you and sooooo glad you aren’t giving up blogging for us followers. Your creations are amazing as well as your new stamps, I’ll will be ordering the word set for sure.
Keep up the great work and remember something good is always on the way!
Ms. Becca… without exception… all your cards have always been inspiring since i found your site… i have been looking for stamps like this for a while myself… many blessings to you and your family… and your gift of creativity…
god bless, lydia
You are one awesome girl! Congrats!!
My “go to” size is 5×7…..I can use an 81/2 x 11 sheet and have plenty of room for “bellies”
Happy! Happy! Happy! So happy for you Becca. I started following your blog awhile ago. I have so enjoyed it. I cannot possibly be happier for you as many others are. Oh and by the way, I’ll take one of each!! CONGRATULATIONS, dearest Becca!
Congratualtions! I cannot think of ANYONE who deserves something like this more than YOU! Vintage Filigree Fancies has “Becca” written all over it – it is just beautiful! I am so happy to hear that you will continue blogging as usual, continuing with those things we all love: Becca Bits, tutorials, ideas and frugal tips. Best Wishes towards an exciting future!
What wonderful news about your new product line with Just Rite. It seems as if it is a time for wonderful surprises for you and I am eager to hear about each item as they come along . Your sharing your creativity is so generous of you.. My favorite cardmaking size-A2 but I also enjoy shaped and trifold ones.
You are surely blessed! Congratulations are your new endevor. You are so talented that I know you will succeed in this new beginning. I, too, am a firm believer that even with loss (any kind of loss) something good will happen eventually. Only God knows when it’s the right time to allow things to happen. I wish you the very best always.

Congratulations on your new venture! I love your new stamp design and can’t wait to see the rest.
My favorite card size is A2.
All the best on your new “line of work”,
Congratulations Becca! I’m sure these will be a great success. They’re beautiful! You add that special touch that makes them great. NOW, how about desiging some dies…
Becca you have come a long way in the last year, and have come through it with flying colours. Just love this new set of stamps and wish you all the very best for this new adventure of yours.
Wow, congratulations, Becca! I can’t think of anyone more deserving than you to have this awesome opportunity.
I love your new designs and look forward to seeing all your future products! I hope you’ll publish some kind of book with all your terrific step-by-step tutorials, I would definitely buy that.
As far as card size goes, I generally stick with the standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ since it makes it easier to find envelopes and get them mailed.
Thanks for the chance to win your awesome new stamp set!! :)
~Rachel in Sacramento
Congratulations Becca…You always amaze me with your new adventures. You always come up with something us stampers will need. Love these stamp sets.
My card size was always the A2 size, I have since “grown up” to a 5 x 7. With checking out your blog and other blogs I have needed more base size to add all the bling and ribbons and whatever else needs to be added to complete the card layout.
Good Luck on your new adventure. JustRite is a great company to partner up with.
Well, now that the tears are streaming down my face, I’ll try to type a response. First, thank you so much for sharing yourself as you do…I especially needed to hear your story today. So, in growing and trusting God, you are helping others grow and trust. He truly is the way, the truth and the life…. and you, you’re just a little piece of ‘saving Grace!” LOL As for card size, I like to do bigger cards, but I am usually forced to do the A2 size for cost and postage reasons. Cards that I don’t mail end up to be all sorts of sizes and shapes!!! Thanks again. And best wishes on your new endeavors!
Congratulations and I know it will be a great success. You are such a talented designer and your work reflects that talent. Your new stamps are stunning and elegant, I can hardly wait for a chance to try them out. Your journey has given the rest of us something to think about with our lives. Have fun and enjoy! Thanks for sharing your wondeful designs with us. As to card size – The majority of my cards are A2, but I also do 5 X 7 and the occasional 6 X 6.
Congrats again and best wishes for continued success.
For a moment my heart sank! I thought for sure you were going to say you are shutting down your blog! But instead, you have been blessed with such wonderful news … and we continue to be blessed with your friendship! Congratulations – to us all! Wishing you a very successful future. John is smiling and saying “That,s MY Becca!”
Becca, I to am dealing with cancer but of my very best friend who lives in TX and I live in IL. This is a perfect sentiemnt to send her. I send a card once a week because I can’t be with her.
Congrads on your new line! Im happy for you and I know God will always provide. It encourages me to know that iam “next” and God will provide for me too!. It has been a very, very rough two years lost of jobs, and everything that goes with that. Three major surgerys this year!!!! and seems more disappoints because of lost income. Thru it all I have decided to trust God…..Jer.29:11 says, I know the plans I have for you, to give you a hope and a future. Not to harm you. I just got home from the Scrap Expo in ATL, and Im more convinced then ever He will bless the work of my hands!!!!!! Your testimony is confirmation. I believe I will leave an inheritance for my children and my childrens children. Thats the promise of God!!!!! the smaller card is my go to :0……..
I would so love to win this beautiful set. It seems I’m always looking for just the right stamp – this would make the perfect addition to my collection.
Congratulations! You are a true inspiration to me, and to many others. During the darker days of my cancer, I could always count on your blog for an uplifting smile. I know you will be successful!
How exciting for you and for us. God’s timing is always perfect!
I’m so pleased for you, Becca. Pleased that you Love the Lord and say so. Pleased that you share!! Thank you for the opportunity to win this set as it is gorgeous!! My go-to size is A2 because it uses paper the wisest.
Hi Becca, You have been on quite a journey and happy for you with designing you stamps. I’m be watching everyday. Phyllis
Good for you, Becca! I know you feel blessed, but please don’t forget what a blessing you are to all your readers! I can’t thank you enough for all the time, talent, and inspiration you have provided through your blog. I am so happy for you!!
Becca, I’m so glad God is giving you grace and showing you the way. It’s wonderful how its all working out for you. Beautiful stamps, and love all your work.
Hi Becca, I love reading your blog to see what you are up to next. Love the designs. Phyllis
Isn’t it awesome that God puts us in just the right place at just the right time. I have so enjoyed your work, and am so excited to own the stamps that you will design. Two of my dear and lovely friends are battling cancer, and you are an inspiration.
Becca, this couldn’t happen to a nicer person! Congrats.Looking forward to all your new creations…
I am so proud of you and happy for you. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my Gosh, I am over the moon excited to hear this wonderful news!! Congratulations on your newest adventure. I am so very happy that this is a prayer answered for you — and all of us, who love following your journey and are so inspired by your talent and creativity. In addition, I am crazy for Just Rite stamps and love the new Becca designs. The lovely font on the word set – don’t know the name yet- is a must have. These sets will be on my wish list.
Congratulations to U! U deserve this. Your work is fantastic and your faith is unquestionable. Your husband is smiling down on you now and beaming with pride. I am so glad you will continue to bless us with all of your creativity.
What wonderful news! I am so happy for you as well as the paper crafting world that now will have a new awesome, amazing, and gracious designer [that would be you dear Becca :-)] As I began reading your post I was thrilled yet somewhat apprehensive as to what the next sentence was going to say. When I read those words…”Nothing changes here at Amazing Paper Grace” , I could finally take a breath! I would be so lost without your blog to brighten my day and teach me such incredible things. Seriously, I am so proud of you for your ability to stand strong, and faithful in all you do. I look forward to watching you grow in your new career, and know you will alway amaze me with your talents and your tenacity to keep on keeping on. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
WOW ! How exciting for you ! I am so happy for you and looking forward to your new stamp line and more. I am pre-ordering my stamps now. Just have to have them ! My go to size is A2 but I have branch out in the last year and do a lot of 5×7 as well. Good Luck in your new venture !
Hi Becca, I can only begin to imagine what you have been through this past year, it has been tough, but you are such an inspiration to everyone who reads your blog. You are a strong woman and your talent is just amazing (no pun intended). I am not at all surprised that you have been offered your own product line. You deserve it and I love the first stamp set. I can’t wait to see more!!!
Praise God! He has kept you in his loving arms and look at what he brought you to. I cannot imagine the grief you have endured over this time and how you get to the other side of that grief cannot be an easy journey. I am sure it never completely leaves but hopefully you are on a better course. You have grown and learned new things from it and for it. God has taken you to the river of life again to show you joy in living. I’m very happy for you.
Your stamps will be a big hit of that I am certain.
I like 5×5 cards but its pretty hard to find envelopes so mostly I use 4 1/4x 5 1/2.
Beautiful. Just like everything you do.
I have been going through the same things as you. My husband fought a long battle with cancer and went to be with the Lord this last January. Like you, I am finding as time goes on that I have been changed by the experience. I am still looking for the new direction that I feel the Lord will lead me into.
And I too know there is something good coming my way in the future.
I tend to make the A2 sized cards. I do a quite a bit of paper embroidery borders or frames and am always looking for something to fit in the frames or work well with the paper embroidery.
I love your new stamps and would love an opportunity to win a set.
I am so proud of the courage that you have to step out on this new venture and feel quite sure you will enjoy it and be very successful.
MANY congratulations on your new best fit! The stamps are lovely, and I’ll be putting some on pre-order. Many blessings to you … and Becca, you ALWAYS fit here!
Ellen ~ CardMonkey
Oh Becca, I just knew some company would scoop you up !! You are so talented, for you and them it’s a “win-win” combination! I believe others will follow too! With your eye for using dies in creative ways, I hope there are some “Becca” dies in your future too! Good for you girl : ) you totally deserve it.I really like the tags you’ve done too! I believe you could design some awesome paper lines too. Oh girl, what the future holds….. only God knows!
Wonderful news! Iris, Saved by Grace
Congratulations on this new endeavor for you! This set is beautiful and I would LOVE to win it!! Praying many blessings on you as you find your new path! Thank you for your talent and encouragement!
Congratulations, I am so inspired by you, not just by your creative genius but also by the person you are. I love your gentle, brave heart and look forward to every one of your posts.
I love all three stamp sets, very impressive. They are so perfect for cards and scrapping.
I tend to do A2 size cards because they are so easy to cut and find envelopes
for but your beautiful cards inspire me to do larger cards. I am really looking forward to more of your work.
Congratulations to you, Becca. I’m sure the best is yet to come!!
It’s like Christmas in July.
Becca, I am so proud of you stepping out and making your talent a business. You go girl! You deserve it. Hugs, Mary
Oh WOW! I am so excited to find out that Becca will design stamps! I can’t wait to see the rest of your designs! This one is gorgeous!
My go-to size card has always been an A2, but since I’ve seen your bits on your favorite sizes, I now love to use the 5×7″ size. It does work so much better with sayings on the card front. Thank you so much for sharing that information. And best of luck to you & your new project! Thank you to Just Rite for offering you this opportunity.
I am thrilled for you and the stamp is lovely and so you!!! My favorite card size is a standard A2 for just that reason, it’s universal.
Oh, Becca, I am always stunned by your beautiful work, and these designs leave me speechless. I have already placed my preorder! I am so happy for you and wish you the best of luck in your new endeavor. I am so grateful to JustRite for allowing you to share your designs with us.
I am so happy for you I love Just Rite and I love your designs- a marriage made in heaven! My go to card size is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2-half a sheet of cardstock-just the easiest most of the time!
Bless you, Becca. I know it has been a long, hard road for you. Just know that you have blessed so many with your strong faith and your beautiful cards. I love your new set and look forward to seeing more.
My go-to card size is the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ mainly because there are so many examples out “there” to CASE. I love 5″ x 5″ cards, but have only done one or two.
Congratulations! And boy, you’ve been busy! I love this idea too, and wish you the very best of luck!
Becca, I had tears in my eyes as I read your post and saw the sentiment in your first new set of stamps. Many years ago I belonged to a group of needlecrafters and together we did a needlecraft sampler, each member doing the same design on each person’s canvas. At the end we all stitched the same sentiment around the whole thing ~ and it was that same one you used about the angels! What great memories that brought back. You can be sure that I will be ordering that set from you! I can’t wait to see what else you have for us.
I usually make A2 size cards simply for the ease of mailing, but my favorite size might be 5.50 X 5.50 or 6 X 6 because of the extra space for embellishing.
Blessings on your day, dearest Becca!
This doesn’t surprise me at all. You haveso much talent that God has given to you and you so readily share it was all in the papercrafts world, right here on your blog and elsewhere. Iso love the JustRite stamps and wish you all the success in new adventure. God has been with you all along. I think I use mostly 5 1/2 x 4 1/2. I just go just go with the flow do what I’m thinking about and then worry about an envelope later,
Oh dear…….I forgot to tell you my favorite card size! I like a 6 x 6 card because it gives me a lot of space to add embellishments.
How thrilling for you. So glad to read your story. You are an inspiration.
My fave card size is A2…but I’ve had fun recently creating the size that fits into a business size 10 envelope…not sure what “card size” that is.
Becca, this is wonderful news! I am soooooooo happy for you!! The stamp sets are BEAUTIFUL!!! They look so much like you! This is so exciting!!! Again, I am sooooo happy for you! What a blessing for you!!!
Wawhooo This is so exciting! I’m just thrilled for you.
I am so, SO happy for you! I know you will be an outstanding success for Just Rite … your style fits theirs and I am a big, big fan of their stamps. I love the first stamp you created, it is just beautiful. I am also happy to hear you will continue with Amazing Paper Grace because I look forward to each and every email I get featuring one of your amazing creations. Congratulations Becca … Hugs, Sue
Becca, I can’t think of anyone more deserving! You’ve been through a LOT, but our awesome God has been there with you every step of the way & it’s been amazing seeing how much your faith has grown. God Bless you as you continue along life’s journey!
How exciting for you! I have long admired so many of the qualities that you share with your readers. You have an amazing talent and I am so excited to see how things are working out for you. May God continue to bless you along your journey.
Looks like God is blessing a faithful servant! It is always in His timing and it is always perfect!
My Go To Card size is boring is the A2 5.5 X 4.25 b/c I can cut reg. cardstock in half and VOILA!
Becca, I have been using JustRite products for a while now and really enjoy them. I just could not wait to see the new stamp set so I clicked on the link.
The stamps are so lovely, I know you must have been storing ideas up for a while. I look forward to your newest designs. I am so glad things worked out for you and wish you continued success. You have the gift girl, creativity runs through your veins!
As it has been said; “when God closes one door he opens another”.
My favorite go to size is 5.5″ x 7″ because the cardstock I buy is precut and folded to that and that seems to get me started on a card.
As always your faith leads you to the right choice. Thank you again for continuing to share your talents. I would love to have the chance to win your set. Marie
What lovely stamps! They are beautiful! My go to card is usually a square 6 inch, but recently have tried to use other sizes!x
Hi Becca , I must say that i have been truly blessed by your gift that has been given to you and that you so willingly share with others and then we can be a blessing to others as well becouse I have shared your blog with many of my friends ,Becouse I love your work and have been very incouraged by it ,Thank you so much for sharing how you felt this year , for those of us who have not experanced what you have gone through , but we do know that we can pray for folks like you ,who have had to give up loved one’s as you have .We stand behind you in your work ,Thank you again Becca
Oh Becca, I am so happy for you! May this just be the start of a wonderfully successful “career” for you!!!! You’ve been successful all along, but may this “bring home the bacon!”
Beautiful stamps, Becca. As is everything you’ve shared with us. Congratulations on your newest (ad)venture!! I guess at this time my go to card size is 5 x 7 . I create birthday cards for my co-workers that we can all sign. Sometimes 20 or more of us write something on it, so i like the extra space just for that. But lately i’ve been partial to 5.5 x 5.5…..i’m flexible..
I couldn’t be here at noon, but finally got the chance to check in to see such a stunning card and read the exciting news. I am so very happy for you. I can’t wait to see all the stamp creations you design. I do the standard 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 card 8 out of 10 cards. The frugal part of me likes using 1 sheet of paper for 2 cards. I also seem to design better in that size as well. Wishing you a very blessed career as a stamp designer. You are such an amazing artist so I subscribe to your blog so I don’t miss an entry,
Congratulations, Becca! I have often wished so many times that I could design just the kind of stamps I’d really like to have. You’re living the dream so many of us have.
wow Becca – you never cease to amaze me with your creative talent- I have just checked out your new set and logo- FABULOUS – I love it and I know you will also design a Christmas set of sentiments – can’t wait to see those. love them all and they are going to be so popular. If this is the start I can’t wait to see what else you design Congratulations- you deserve it. My go to cards are A5 – mainly because I get the cardstock easier but I also love 5.5″ x 5.5″ square cards. Thank you for the chance to win your lovely stamps.
HALLELUJAH!!!! I am truly Rejoicing with you and FOR you!!!! You are
an extremely visual/creative Artist…a Gift From God in my opinion.
Please know —I’ve already pre-ordered —loving the set and can hardly
wait to use them!
Bless you my dear…
Congratulations!!! My go to size card is 4.25? x 5.5?. This is the size we started with in our card class. Sometimes it is nice to make a larger card but I prefer the smaller cards. Dianne
Dear Becca what beautiful and exciting news–you are so blessed. My deepest congratulations on this new dream. You are amazing and we all know that you will succeed. I feel so lucky to have found your blog and now your on design of stamps. I tell you Becca you are an angel of God. May he guide you and continue to bless you on your new journey. I know I can say that we are all so proud of you. Let the journey began.
Congrats Becca! What fantastic news and it is was lovely to read of the journey you have made to get to this point. God is so good!
My fave card size is boring old A2. A lot of my favourite cardmaking cardstock is A4 so it works well.
Hugs from South Australia, Tanja
My favorite size is A2. Thanks for designing sayings that I have been looking for. TFS
Congratulations Becca this is quite exciting news! It sounds like the Lord has opened doors for you and it’s time to walk through them! I’m looking forward to seeing your new products! I just love this filigree stamp, this large initial is beautiful!
I’m a new stamper myself, and prefer a 4.25×5.5 card so I can efficiently use my card stock. But a square 4×4 & 5×5 card are always gorgeous, more room to make them beautiful! My best to you and looking forward to new posts!
Did you ever doubt this would be a hit?! A beautiful style and lovin’ those beautiful fonts!
My go to is A2, mainly because I mail most of my cards. I also love to do 5×7. With that size I can really be inspired by the matstack size papers, and that’s fun!
Oh Becca what great news. I am so very happy for you. I have taken a look at the stamps and love them all. Have already put them on my list for birthday and Christmas ideas. As for my go to size card I mainly use the 51/2 x 41/2. Wishing you much success as you truly deserve it.
Congraulations Becca, I wish all the luck in the world. Your new stamps are wonderful just like your beautiful cards. You have been an inspiration for me, your courage and determination not to let life get you down has encouraged me to try harder also! My go to card size is 51/2 x 81/2, it’s easy to mail and handle when I teach my card classes. Besides if the cart was any bigger,I’d have a hard time figuring out how to fill all the other space (lol). Thanks for sharing your thoughts and talents with us. God bless.
The filigree sets are drool-worthy! Lovely card, and I loved reading about how you have taken stock of your life so far this year. I need to sit down and do the same, I suspect that my life will look much more accomplished than it does from my current viewpoint.
I wish you all the luck in the world. I love all your samples. My favorite card size is a-2 because you can get the most out of a sheet of paper. Good Luck Dolores H.
Ha! when I was at the Springfiled Mass show in June I said don’t you ever let that Becca out of your sight, he smiled-Now I know why! Great news for you and us too!
I tend to gravitate towards 5.5 x 5.5 square cards. Why? I can fit larger images or an image & a sentiment on the card front and still have room for embellishments. Being less than 6″ helps on postage. I can also get a card base out of a single piece of 8.5 x 11 cardstock and still have a strip for borders, mats, etc.
Congratulations on your new venture. The sets are beautiful!!
I too left my job to care for my Mother and Father-in-law and found going back after they passed, didn’t fit me either. Still stuck, but happy you found a place.
My go to card size is an A2. Easy to find and make envelopes for that size.
Wow Becca, Congratulations! This is awesome news and I am so proud of you! I wish you all the best and even more than you could ever dream of. I love the stamps, they are beautiful and so versatile. You are such an inspiration, I can’t even express how much. My go to card size is 5″ x 7″ when I’m doing a lot of embellishing and an A2 size otherwise. Thanks so much for sharing your heart. God Bless you always!
It seems like the Lord is still showing you His perfect will. Your cards are just beautiful and I look forward to your post everyday.
Congratulations Becca. You are so deserving of all the good things that are coming your way. God Bless You. Good Luck!
Congratulations doesn’t do this wonderful news justice, but I can’t think of another. So happy you’re in the right niche for you – and for US as well! I know your designs will be just superb and different than anyone elses, so can’t wait to see what you create. All best wishes and prayers for a very successful new “job.'”
Becca, I am so excited for you. I am praying that God fills you mind with many new ideas. This is wonderful news.
I am glad that you are keeping Amazing Grace. It has been a life line for me.
My go to card size is A2 because I can get 2 cards out of one sheet of cardstock. I send cards to about 30 missionay families. So it helps the expense. You are a very talent & wonderful person.
Love these stamps – like you I have searched for something like this. I have not been carding long enough for a favorite, but I do find myself liking bigger cards than the smaller ones. You can get more on them I guess!
First of all, good for you Becca!! You are such an inspiration to us that are
creatively challenged :)
I love to make 5 x 7 cards. If you go to all the trouble to make a beautiful
card, it should be big enough to really decorate!
Thank you for the chance to win!!!!!
Well done Becca, I’m so happy for you, that you get to turn something you love into a career. Your stamp set is just gorgeous.
I love making 5×7 cards as they give you a good size canvas to work with.
Love and best wishes for this new chapter in your life…..Jenelle
God bless you. You have been gifted with an amazing artistic talent. Thank you for sharing it with all of us. Your faith and strength through difficult times is such an inspiration. Congratulations on your newest venture – well deserved!!
Oh Wow! How exciting this new venture will be for you! Congrats Becca and I wish you all the best! My go to card size is an A2 size. It’s fits A2 size envelopes which are always readily available. I do stray from time to time to 4 x 4 sizes though.
Congrats on being able to do what you love. Most of my cards are 4 and a quarter by 5 and a half. I also make some that are 5 by 6 and a half. Love your new stamp sets.
Oh becca, I,m so excited for you i know it will be our gain.Your talent is out of this world.Thanks for the chance to win a set.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! WOW!!! Those of us who have been following you…are extremely happy for you!! The stamp is gorgeous!! my go to size card is 5 X7…I figure it gives me more room to add embellishments and ribbon!!!
I am so happy for you. I just know that God is showing you that He is holding you in His secure hand. You are my favorite blogger and card crafter, so your stamp designs will be a favorite very soon. I love what you have shown so far. May God continue to bless you and your endeavors. Lady, you have a special style all your own. Can hardly wait to see what happens next.
Oh Bekka, I am so happy for you! My best wishes and prayers that this is only the first step to a whole new, bigger world for you!
Congratulations on becoming a stamp designer. You must be thrilled. It’s great to be able to make some money doing something you love; it’s a blessing, really.
My go to card size is 4 ¼ x 5 ½ because it is half an 8 ½ X 11 piece of cardstock. Also, I like the way the images look on that size.
Becca, Congratulations!! Love your new stamp sets. Hope I win! As for the card size question, I usually use the 5.5 X 4.25, just because it’s easy for me to cut and doesn’t require very large stamps. But, I also love larger card sizes when I want to add embellishments or I have a large stamp I MUST use!
You have so much talent and are so generous to share with all of us.
My favorite card ia an A2.
God bless you in this new chapter in your life.
Oh, Becca…..I am so VERY happy for you. Good on you for keeping the faith ……. in the fact that good will happen and in YOURSELF. Love, Love the new stamps. So happy to see your talents acknowledged by others.
Congratulations, Becca! I am so excited for you! This new endeavor sounds so exciting for you. You have been on an amazing journey and you have remained so positive. You have been an inspiration to me as I fight to come back from loosing my son. Thanks…
My favorite card size is 4.25 x 5.5. It is easy to mail and you only need .5 of a sheet of card stock.
Love your stamps! Good luck!
Congratulations on your amazing news, a well deserved break. Heres to great success in your new venture. What a buzz to be able to design your own stamp sets.
My favourite card size is A2
I am so happy for you! The sets are gorgeous and I know I’ll be supporting you. My go to card size is 5X7 and it really started when you taught me how to make a vertical 5X7. I wish you much success!
Congratulations Becca! This is a wonderful surprise and I’m very happy for you. Good things come to good people and I think you’re one of them. My “go to” card size is 5×7 because I’m also a scrapbooker and I find making a 5×7 card is just a smaller layout that I can embellish.
Congrats Becca on your beautiful stamp set! My go to card size is A2.
Congratulations on your new endeavor! Love those stamps! Just ordered mine, and looking forward to many more. May God continue to bless you in all that you do.
Love Love Love the new stamps. My “go to” for card size is a square one – 5.5 x 5.5. After learning a 6 x 6 card would have cost me $1.99 to mail I changed to 5.5 x 5.5.
Oh I am so thrilled for you!! This is such a perfect match for you and your new sets are great!! Can’t wait to see what more you come up with!
Love this stamp. I am so excited for you. I am new to your site, but you are an inspiration to me and I too lost a husband 11 years ago and I know how hard that can be.
My favorite card size to make is 4 1/2 X 5 1/2 or close thereof.
Congratulations and thank you for the opportunity to win one of your stampts. Blessings to you.
Becca, I am so delighted to hear how God is healing you and providing wonderful opportunities for you. Your post was encouraging to me as I am facing difficulties now and hope in God’s deliverance.
The sentiment on your new stamp is so fitting as you have given a gift to your blog friends by sharing your story.
I am really excited for you, Becca! I have been visiting this site for awhile now and it seems more of a “build it and they will come” situation to me. I have always marveled at your prolific output of work. In fact, I just plain don’t know how you do it. I am retired and my husband works long hours so I spend a lot of time alone and can craft as much as I like, but the work that you put into your creative life astounds me. It is always fresh and new and just keeps coming!! I, too, got this cold little fear when I started reading today’s blog thinking that you were saying good-bye… you have been my inspiration, in crafting and in life, from the first day that my friend directed me to your site. If I knew words of higher praise, I would use them. If I could be supportive in a more tangible way, I would do it. Just when I thought I could finally afford the Bow Maker for my sister, I now want to support this new fledgling effort. At some point it will all come together, I know. Your creativity has inspired me to use a larger card size than I used to; most of my cards are 5 x 7. Postage isn’t a big deal because most of the cards are hand delivered or packaged with a gift (also something I learned from you). BEST WISHES & MUCH LOVE!!!!!!!!1
Becca, I am so happy and proud of you!!
Your set is beautiful. I know it will sell like hotcakes.
Thank you so much for the chance to win your first stamp set :o)
I know I would not be able to get through the year you have had, and come out with such a positive outlook and all the work you do. I admire you so very much.
I am so happy for you and for us. It is a very nice opportunity.
Good good lock Becca
Maybe one day you will give us French stamps.
Oh Becca, I am so happy for you! My best wishes on your new endeavor. I’ll go take a look at the whole set. Thanks for the chance to win it!
My prayers are with you and wish you much success!
This is so wonderful! I am so happy for you. The sets are just gorgeous! I would love to win a set!
My go to card size is a 5 1/4 by 6 1/2….a little bigger than the standard handmade card. I like it because it gives me more room to embellish.
Honestly, Becca…I am so thrilled for you!!!!
Congrats Becca — I love your blog — I have coffee with you each morning and I am so inspired by you and your journey. I can’t wait to get my hands on an “Becca” original — thanks so very much for sharing a bit of you with us all. God Bless you on your new venture — Just don’t stop blogging!!! the stamps are BEAUTIFUL and Elegant .
Dear Sweet Becca,
I am so very happy for you!!!!! God is indeed good and I am so glad that you have found where you fit in. You are an amazing woman and artist and I love your new stamp sets. I so look forward to seeing all of your new works of art.
I know that your John would be so proud of you. May God bless you above and beyond what you could ever hope or imagine.
I am so happy for you and for us.
It is a very nice opportunity.
Maybe one day you will design French stamps.
Becca your stamps are gorgeous! I”m so glad something good came along!!! Best of luck in your new adventure… You are off to a fabulous start!
Becca I am delighted to hear of your amazing news! The new stamps are simply divine, the 32 words is perfect for anything I would wish to create. I am one of your international readers, but have purchased your Peg Bow maker and love it. I am sure your new direction will be just as inspirational and amazing quality.
You asked about card sizes, here in Australia the only cards that can be sent by normal basic postage are folded A5 (to make a card approx 6″ x 4″) and business size, DL. Any other cards need double postage, including square cards of any size. Therefore the A6 size is the most commonly used here.
Good luck in your future direction and I will be checking in daily to see all and any new Becca Designs. Thank you for the inspiration!
Huge congratulations Becca! You so deserve this! Your stamps are lovely and I’m so pleased for you.
I like to make A5 cards (an A4 sheet folded in half), as there’s more room to work on – although in the UK it costs more to post a card this size. 6″ square are a good size too. At Christmas time when I’m posting lots of cards it’s more cost effective to make them C6 size (half of A5 size) and only thin (one or two layers at the most). I’m most happy when there are lots of lovely layers though!
Good luck in your new venture and I’m really happy that you will still be blogging!
Wow Becca, I am so excited for you, and me too. I love your work, and
can’t wait to buy your beautiful designed stamps.
Becca I have noticed a lot of your readers’ comments specify an A2 sized card? That is a huge size here! I found this chart which explains “normal” card sizes, which is why Australian cards are classed as A6. Hope this helps you. Sorry the measurements are in mms.

Ohhhh soooo greatttt!!! Way to go Becca…my heart is full for you… ‘ditto’ to all that the ladies have stated before me…in my lurking, am totally amazed at the details you put into your creations, you’re such a natural and glad JR picked up on that. Hope us (your fans) and JR and CHA are added blessings in your life, as you are a blessing to me. Yep, I will be a proud owner of your line and luv the dropped down caps.
My card size is usually large since I like real estate and usually start with the inside and work my way out (lol) so glad envelopes come in all sizes.
Long distance hugs to you dear
I’m happy to know you’ve found your place again. Remember, a child of God is never lost, He always knows exactly where you are. Sometimes it takes a while for us to figure that out! I’m glad you did!
Congrats Becca! You are so right everything happens for a reason good luck in all that is ahead on your road. Love all your projects
Oh, I forgot to tell you that my favorite card size is 5×7. I just find it easier to work with and they look more like store bought. It’s also easier to get envelopes to fit.
This is the most exciting news!!! You ARE right where you belong and it will be such a blessing to all of us to be part of the gift of creating that you have when we use your beautiful stamps! God definitely has designs for you (sorry I couldn’t resist the pun)! He will be working through you to reach so many! Congratulations!
Congratulations, Becca! I enjoy your blog so much. I’m glad for you and your success. Your cards have inspired me bunches! I know, I’m saying what everyone else says, but it’s what’s in my heart, just like everyone else. All the best to you in Jesus. And thank you for your wonderful blog.
HUGE TIGHT HUGS, AS A BREAST CANCER THRIVER, ALL THING HAPPEN FOR A REASON. WE HAVE A GREAT MIGHTY GOD WHO LEADS US EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT ALL YOUR BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS FOR MANY YEARS. AT TIMES I WISH I COULD MAKE THEM AND THEN AT TIMES I WOULD LIKE TO JUST CLICK A BUTTON AND BUY THEM. I AM SO HAPPY YOU ARE STAYING WITH YOUR BOG THIS IS YOUR PASSION, LOVE, TALLENT, AND YES YOU FIT IN SO MANY WAYS.
KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR BEST AT WE LOVE YOU AND WHAT YOU SHARE WITH US. GOD BLESS
This is wonderful. You have such a flair, I can’t wait to share in your stamps and your own unique ideas.
Wow, another step higher for you Becca, Congratulations! Love your cards and all the writing from your heart.
Sending you a big hug.
My Dearest Becca ~
I read your post almost every day and look forward to viewing your beautiful, awesome work. Today your post really hit me enough to just offer you words of love and friendship. Your posts are always full of wisdom and insight. I always look forward to your words of perception and card of the day.
I could sense that you were struggling personally after the loss of John and admired your strength and sweet words when writing about your loss. Reading about your recent car problem, air conditioner etc a couple weeks back I wished I could offer you words then and didn’t. My heart ached for you knowing life isn’t always a bowl of cherries. God has certainly walked along side of you during this difficult journey and held you up. He has put each of us here for a reason and I know that this is your path he has chosen not only with your blog but for your new journey with Just Right Papercraft. Congratulations!!!!!
May the good Lord continue to watch over you in your new endeavors? Your new line of stamps is just beautiful! Continue success and Gods richest of blessings…. Paper((( hug)))) Leanne
Oh Becca, I am so happy for you! This change in direction will be an amazing experience for you – enjoy the ride :) I love the new stamps, they are so YOU.
My ‘go to’ paper size is the Aussie A5 – 15 x 21 cm. It just seems to work so well with most stamps, except those made for US card fronts.
Thanks for the chance to win some of your stamps.
You are an inspiration in so many ways. God has used you to bless so many. Thanks for following His will and waiting upon Him. He is good. Thanks for continually sharing your talents with all of us. You are incredible!
I’m so very happy for you. I have long prayed for you to find a way to make all the money you could ever need. This I know is the start of that.
You have the rain and now it’s time for the stunning sunshine to fall on you.
I will continue to pray for as you deserve all the good God has to give!
5×7- not too big not too small
Becca – Congratulations on the new stamp line! You are so artistic and creative – you truly belong in this world of stamping and papercrafting! Your blog is my absolute favorite!! Your designs are so inspiring to me. I’m glad we readers will continue to share in your talents.
My favorite card size is 51/2 x 41/4 – probably becauseone of my very first teachers usually uses that size.
Forgot to say my favorite card size is A 2
CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so very excited for you. You so deserve this and I am beyond happy for you. WOW. Great news!
I’m so glad good things are coming your way Becca. Your stamps are as gorgeous as your cards, and I can’t wait to get some. Warm hugs and Congratulations!
Congrats to a GREAT lady! Can’t wait to see your line – follow your posts and so envy your talents! You go girl! Wishing you God’s rich blessings as you venture into yet another “gift” from Him.
Dear Becca, Thank you for sharing your story–I have been following you for a few years and I am in Awe of your most beautiful card creations. I also enjoy your Becca Bits You Tube videos. Especially the ones with punches. I also remember a card that John had made for you and I thought what a sweet and kind husband to do that. I have pre-ordered your stamp set and if all goes as planned it will arrive right about time for my Birthday. Thanks again for you and your blog. Love in Christ, Marilyn Mae from Maine
Becca, I’m so happy to hear about all the good things going on in your life. I love the fact that you’ll be able to continue the blog as that is such an important source of inspiration for us. Your card is just beautiful. Hope your new venture is a very successful one. I prefer a 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 card..it’s a perfect sized palette. God bless.
Just finished reading the post….read the first few sentences and had to hurry and congratulate you, I was so excited! However, now that I’ve read the whole post…..my go-to card size is A2 – 4.25″ x 5.5″
Dear Becca, I could not be happier for you. JustRite is very, very lucky to have you and I’m so glad that we all will, too!
I confess that the majority of cards I make for the classes taught in my store are A2. Your style (and your stamps) would certainly justify making them A6 or A7.
Thanks so much for all your glorious inspiration and thoughtful comments. It always warms my day.
Becca, you have come through this time with the help of God. Praise be to his Name! He has given you new direction and new challenges and will always be with you. Together you done good!
Oh, Becca, congratulations!!! I’m so excited for you. Have been a ‘fan’ for a long, long time, and believe nobody deserves this more than you do. Your talent, devotion, and loving, caring personality have been a blessing to so many of us. God bless you as you pursue this new endeavor. And thank you so much for sharing your gifts and talents with us all. Blessings to you.
Oh, Becca, congratulations!!! I’m so excited for you. Have been a ‘fan’ for a long, long time, and believe nobody deserves this more than you do. Your talent, devotion, and loving, caring personality have been a blessing to so many of us. God bless you as you pursue this new endeavor. And thank you so much for sharing your gifts and talents with us all. Blessings to you. Oh, my go-to size for cards is A-2.
Oh Becca! I am so happy for you and you deserve it so much! My favorite size card is the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ size. Mainly because I can get 2 cards out of one sheet of cardstock. Occasionally, I will make a larger one, especially if I am casing one of yours. I love your stamps you have designed. You are a beautiful person and it reflects in your cards and now your stamps. I am so grateful that you are continuing your blog. I follow it, not just for your beautiful creations, but to keep up on your life and faith. I consider you a special friend. Love you.
Congratulations Becca I am as happy for us being able to own your beautiful stamps as I am for you to be able to create them. I dont even care if I win any of them as I am happy to support your new venture and purchase them and I am sure they will be a huge success. My usual card size is either 5 X 5 or 6 X 6.
I am so pleased to hear you will be designing stamps. I took a quick peek at what you already have done and they’re wonderful! I could see myself using any or all of them. My go-to size is the A-1, 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. Your blog is the first thing I go to most days. Thank you and may God richly bless you in your new job as a stamp designer!
Congratulations Becca, I just checked out the new stamp sets at JustRire and they are beautiful. I’m so happy for you and so glad that you will still be sharing your life and inspiration with us.
This couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. You are truly an inspiration and remind me to keep going forward. Congratulations!! The card size I usually make is 4.25 X 5.5. Thank you so much for sharing your life with all of us.
Congatulations, Becca! I wish you great success and cannot wait to see all of your new stamps. You have such a great sense of design and you are such an inspiration to soo many people! My favorite card sizes are 6×6 and5x7
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOsuch wonderful news. Congratulations!!!!! WOW ! ! ! Stamp sets by Becca – WOOOOONNNNDERFUUULL!!!!! I looked at your first three sets – BEEEE-U-TEEEE-FUL ! ! ! ! AND inexpensive – WOW!!!!!
It has been a loooooooonnnnng time since I last wrote you but I have read every single one of your blogs and admired every card. Thank you soooo much for sharing your life with us. I have admired you since the first day I found your site. Your cards are ALWAYS wonderful, inspiring and fun to see. Its like, “I wonder what Becca has for today…” Your hints/tips have been very helpful. I have told MANY people about your blog and talent.
And your way with words is wonderful. Often you write something that I just could not put into words and its a WOW!!! time with me. Thanks!!
As far as favorite go to size card its A2 – I can get more cards for my money – and that’s a goooood thing.
Again: congrats, thank you, and YES GOD IS GOOD ALLLLLLLLLLLL THE TIME ! ! ! ! !
Becca – I was at Just Rite today and was thinking to myself “I didn’t know Becca had a line of stamps!” How cool for you! I have followed your blog for a while, admired your cards, cried when John died and prayed hard for you. Congratulations dear sister, I hope you are blessed beyond measure!
OK, comment #2, I forgot to mention my favorite card sizes are 6×6.
Best of luck in your new direction!!! Have always looked forward to seeing your creations on your blog! Hope you can keep up the lovely creations! As for card size–A2, because I can get 2 from an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock.
Fom Aussie a big congratulations on your new adventure with stamps.Love your work with cards and now we can
enjoy the beautiful stamp and cards together Keep up the great work
we all enjoy. God Bless
I am just so delighted for you Bekka that everything has fallen into place for you – the right thing at the right time. You are a real inspiration at so many levels, not just with your creativity, which is amazing, but also with being willing to share your grieving process. Thank you, and bless you. And all the best for your new venture.
Oh yes, card size. Since the 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 does not require additional postage, I usually stick with that size. Trying to be a frugal stamper, lol, which translates I’d rather spend more on the tools and products to create the card than in shipping :)
Oh Becca what a beautiful stage you have progressed to – one of creativity and an ability to bless others – I have forwarded your blogs on grief to a friend who is walking that journey after her husband was accidently killed, and she too has bee blessed to know that others felt what she was feeling i.e. she was not alone.
I love your new stamp – it is so very ‘you’ .
My usual card size is half an A4 sheet of paper, folded in half – finished size 147mm x 103mm – or there abouts – it can vary by a mm or two. :-)
Congratulations Becca, this is such wonderful news to wake up to on a Sunday morning here in Australia! Can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us all! With regards to card size, I quite like bigger cards – about 5 x 7, as I usually hand my cards to people so postage hasn’t become an issue (yet!)
Thanks again for sharing with us!
I’m so excited for you Becca. Know that you will do fantastic in this new endeavor. My go-to card size is A2 (5.5 x 4.25); I occasionally do 6×6 also.
Becca, congratulations! Fabulous news!
My go-to size for cards is an A2.
I was shocked when I read your words saying you contemplated giving up Amazing Paper Grace! But when I read on, I felt comforted by the fact that you have been able to find a road to travel that you truly love walking … I wish you many steps along that road, Becca. Steps to prosperity, fulfillment, happiness and discovery!
Becca what wonderful news for you to be designing. Your cards are the best and to be designing stamps & I hope many other things is just more to look forward to!! My fav card size is 4.25 X 5.5 lots of space to work!!
Congratulations on your answered prayer!
Hi Becca!!! congratulations on your new journey in life. Your cards continue to be beautiful as ever and I know I speak for many, you are such an inspiration to all. Can’t wait to see all the new things coming from you.
Wonderful for you and all the paper crafting community! I have used inspiration from many of your designs, I truly love your vintage style. I already love all three debut designs. My favorite card size is 5.5 s 4.25, such an easy size for me to use. May this new venture be all you hope for.
I’m so happy you now became a desingner for JustRite Stampers.
I think JustRite had choose the right person to design for them, as you have brilliant ideas, tips, and have great techniques to share with. I love vintage styles but your first edition really wow me. Can’t wait to see more and more in future.
PS: I love your new logo.
How absolutely fippin wonderful for you!!! That is so awesome Becca!!! A line of stamps of your own!! I will definitely want all of them!!! This first one is just stunning!!
I just love all those sets! My go to card size is 4.25 x 5.5. I like that i can use an entire piece of paper without wasting any of it!
Becca, so glad that things have come together for you. Glad to hear that you will be designing for Just Rite.You are such a talented person and so willing to share with all of us. Great news for all to hear that you will be keeping Amazing Paper Grace up and running. My favorite card size is an A2. Looking forward to seeing what you will be showing us in days to come . You are truly “Amazing”.
My favorite card size is 6 1/2″ X 5″. However 5″ square is my favorite when I do quilted cards. Thanks for sharing with us. Wishing you much success with your new endeavor and hope I’m one of the winners.
Becca, I’m really very excited and happy for you! The stamp sets are Beautiful. And I love that they are clear stamps. This is truly a wonderful gift you have been given. Good luck in all you do!
My favorite go to size for cards is the regular A2 size. 5.5 x 4.25 I think I like it because you get two cards from a regular size sheet of cardstock. It also is easier to mail it here in the USA.
Congratulations & I hope you enjoy the new path on your journey.
I live in Australia & my favourite size card to make is square 5″x 5″. I usually make my own matching envelope if I am giving the card personally rather than mailing it. (Sometimes the envelope turns out nicer than the card !)
The other thing I like to do is personalise my cards with photos especially if it’s for a mile stone occasion such as 21st birthday, 50 th birthday etc.
I’m so glad you decided to keep blogging, I really love your work. x
Congratulations, Becca. Beautiful stamps and lovely card. My go to card size is A2 – frugal use of my card stock.
What fantastic news! Congrats! I’m so excited for you. My favorite card size is 6 1/2″ X 5″ as I can use the premade card stock.
You go girl!! Congrats on this new stage of your life! Wish you success!
I woke up this morning, open an email and saw your feedblitz in my inbox.
I take my tea not coffee and read your blog post. But something different today, I saw the vintage alphabet in every first para. Beautiful I said. Para by para and I just knew you now became JustRite team designer. Congratulation Becca, so happy to hear this great news. As you’re always share your beautiful creations, I believed you will design out the box style and satisfied our needs.
Dina from Malaysia.
Becca, What wonderful news, I am so happy for you and for all of us stampers too. You are my number 1 inspiration. I love the new set. My favorite card size is A-2. Much eaiser to mail. I will be waiting and I also promise to pray for you as you take this new walk in life,. Frances
Becca, I forgot to inform you my card size. Mine is 5″ x 6.5″ bit different from others because Malaysian not interested for A2 size (small for them, I called this type of size as mini).. So I decided to make my own standard size 5″ x 6.5″ and most of them like the size.
Congrats Becca! I’m so glad you have been given this opportunity to design some amazing stamps for an amazing stamp company! I have pre-ordered and am anxiously awaiting them.
My go to card size is 4.25×5.5 inches simply because it is a 8.5×11 cut in half. No scraps or waste!
Congratulations Becca on this well-deserved accomplishment that speaks well of your hard work and gift of brilliance. I hope you will have more exciting doors to open in the days ahead—to relish and delight in everything that God makes beautiful in His time. The stamp designs are great looking. Truly good things will follow your way in this endeavor.
Becca, this is such great news!!! You inspire thousands of crafters around the world, and I’m positive we’re all thrilled to get a piece of your heart with these amazing stamps (I couldn’t resist and peeked at JustRite’s site to see them all! ). My fav card size is 6″x6″ – half of 12″/12″ scrapbook card stock :-)
Becca, your stamps are as beautiful as your cards always are. I’m excited to see them in person and to use them. My “go to” card size is the standard 5.5 by 4.25, since it is easy to find envelops for them. Thanks for sharing all you do on this blog. I love to read it and see your amazing cards.
A BIG congratulations to you Becca on becoming a new designer for JustRite Stampers, I love their selection of stamps and with you on the design team, they can’t sell more products. I so look forward to seeing your new designs, oh, and by the way, love the card that you made with the first sneak peak of your very own designed stamp. My go-to card is a 4.5 x 5.5 card as well, because it’s so easy to just cut the 8.5 x 11 cardstock in half, although I do love to make much larger cards and at times smaller ones too.
Becca, I am so happy for you! The first stamp is great and I love the idea of the big drop down letter. I can hardly wait to see what you do next.
Wow! How wonderful for you and all of us who love your work. Congratulations on your career move. Along with many others, I will be cheering for you and waiting with anticipation on all the great things to come. My favorite size is the standard A2 card but I make all kinds.
Oh my gosh Becca. The Lord surely does provide and provide quite well too. I am thrilled at your new venture. It couldn’t happen to a nicer person.
My link didn’t work, so I couldn’t see the whole set, but love the sentiment on your card today. I have a feeling I will be one of the people buying the set. My go to card size is usually 5 x 6.5 in, though I sometimes do cards in the 5′ square.
I can’t wait to see the rest of your set. Thanks for being there for your blog freinds. I certainly enjoy your blog, and will check out your blog even if I don’t have time for checking out any other blogs.
Love this for YOU!
“Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally”….David Frost
Wishing you all that you wish for and MORE! You give us so much inspiration each day and now you will give us everlasting designs to cherish.
Best of health and happiness…
p.s. I love using 6 ” x 6″ cards and creating matching envelopes
In the end, you just have to surrender to life/God and let it/Him take you where it/He wants you to go… It sounds like you are on your way… best of luck in your new venture, Becca. Your fans are behind you all the way! Hugs
Hi Becca – the stamp has you written all over it! It’s really cool! Best of luck with your new venture!
I tend to go to the 5×5 size card – I think people enjoy the bigger cards more than the 4×5’s.
Becca, my heart was in my throat when I started to read this. I was so afraid that you were going to say that Amazing Paper Grace was to be no more. Or, perhaps only occasionally would we see your creativity on display. I was trying to be glad for you, if that’s what you felt you needed to do, but I was dreading it personally. How THRILLED I was to read that instead you are going in a even more crafty direction. CONGRATULATIONS, BECCA! Will be off to check out the new stamps in just a min. But my got to size for cards is A2…5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Why? Most economical use of paper, can mail for regular postage and #1 reason why…this is the preferred size for Operation Write Home!
Hugs and best wishes,
CONGRATULATIONS on your new stamp line! Your work is simply amazing, and I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us!
Wow, congratulations, Becca! I’m so happy for you! Your new stamp sets are absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!
congratulations on your new “job” though i know it will be a labor of love!
my only size cards i make are A2, since you can get 2 per regular sheet of cardstock….and it doesn’t cost extra for mailing like square cards do.
Oh, Becca, I’m so happy for you and know you’ll have beautiful stamp sets, as this one is! I’ve told many of my card making friends about your blog and they, too, are awed by your talents. Best wishes!! My go to card size is A-2.
Becca, You are an inspiration, your projects are always amazing. Congratulations on your new stamp line. My prefered card size is A5 or 5 1/2″ Square, just depends on the image size or products I am thinking of using in my project.
Wow, this is fabulous. You will surely be giving us all even more wonderful things to look at and use. It seems like a natural thing, with all the talent you have! Congratulations…and I am sure you will be very successful.
This is such exciting news and the stamps are adorable. It is additionally brilliant that it is about YOU. Fantastic. I will certainly add them to my wish list.
My go to card size varies depending on the main image, sentiment or the fancy that guides me. I like the bigger cards and if I were to say a size (as an average) it is probably about 5″ x 7″, though I sometimes make cards in the 6″ and 8″ square.
I couldn’t be more thrilled for you Becca, I (amongst many others) have only travelled part of the journey with you and know this, “a kind word offers its weight in gold and is a precious thing to behold”.
Oh, forgot … I’m such a practical person I use the 4.25 x 5.5 size. However, whatever size I use, I find I can’t throw away any scrap left over from an odd size!
Congratulations Becca…God is good…all the time, God is good. I love the look of your new stamps. Keep the creative juices flowing. My preferred card size is the A2 size; however, I did find a tutorial to make envelopes to fit other sized cards (I usually hand deliver those…no need to be concern about postage).
Congratulations Becca – this seems like such a natural progression in your amazing artistic talent, and to be able to use your creations to make our creations is an amazing double gift. My go to size for cards is the standard A2 basically because of the convenience of 2 per sheet of cardstock and mailing purposes.
Congratulations Becca, I am waiting fir your emails since a few months ans really enjoy everyone of them. I am really impress by your talent and will take a look at your new sets.
My favotite card size is 4.25 X 5.50 as it is easy to cut.
Odile from Canada but originaly from France
I am so happy for you!!! I met you in Ohio as a matter of fact you commented that we could have been related. I was so excited to meet you and you were so nice beyond my expectations . My card club friends talked about you for days and how nice you were and so genuine. So it does not surprise me that good things are coming your way that is a funny thing about people who are given a gift and share it with others God increase their gift even more.
Thanks for sharing your gift.
oops I got carried away and forgot my favorite card size 5×7 not too small not too big
How exciting Becca! I am so happy for you. This stamp and card is stunning, love the design.
My favorite size is A2, easier to find envelopes to mail them. Tho I also love doing 5×5, I like even squares.:)
Congratulations on your new line of stamps! I can’t wait to see what the other sets look like. Your cards always look fabulous. Maybe getting stamps designed by you will help my own cards look more professional (a girl can dream).
I tend to make cards that are 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, since it just means cutting a piece of cardstock in half (and I’m pretty lazy when it comes to card bases).
So glad that you have found something that feels completely right for you and I totally agree…your own stamp range…perfect!
Most of my cards are 11x15cm or a sqare 15x15cm
Wishing you all the best from Australia!
Sweet Spirited Lady,
I will buy every stamp you design. I am grateful for your generosity over the years. You are miles away and a phatom sister in Christ, but you have been a blessing many times. Before I finished reading this post I jumped over to buy the three sets representing your debut!
Praise God for opening this door in your life and judging you to follow His plan.
I hope to meet you some day.
Congrats on your new adventure! A2 is my usual size, trying to move out of my comfort zone to a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2!
Congratulations Becca! It is always like opening a surprise package when I check out your blog. I like the A2 size when I make my cards but it is fun to also make other sizes once in a while. The filigree on the stamp is so much like “Becca” and I just love it. Lots of luck with your new enterprise.
It was a true pleasure meeting you in Akron…I was thrilled!! Meeting you was the reason I wanted to even go!! I drove hour and half just to meet you.. I would say you are someone special!
Have a great day and good luck!!
Oh Becca! How exciting for you (and for all of us)! Your work has always been something I look forward to seeing every day! Now we will have the opportunity of being able to include YOU in our work (actually play). Your idea of the large Drop Cap is wonderful! I have always loved that look. Something else I would love to see (and who better to ask to think about it): I am on the lookout for vertical word stamps! I once saw a Happy Birthday that was done vertically, but by the time I saw the card with it on, the stamp was no longer available! How terrible is that? It would be such a blessing to have you designing stamps like that. I know the fonts would be beautiful and the art work would be gorgeous! Thanks for thinking about this, but even more thanks for sharing your wonderful talent for all of us to enjoy. Congratulations on your new endeavor!
Sorry, I forgot to mention my favorite card sizes. First and foremost I prefer the A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) size. Though there are times when I love to make a 5 x 7 card! Sometimes, you just need the bigger size! Very occasionally I will try a 5 x 5 square, though they are harder to send through the mail. It means making my own envelopes and though I enjoy making them, I am a bit lazy and prefer to make something I can get envelopes ready made. Thanks.
Congratulations!!! What a wonderful announcement. I know it has taken a lot to get to where you are today, but I know your strength in God has pulled you through to this point. It will be your continued faith that will give you the guidance you need to continue and grow in all aspects of your life. I’m truly excited that you will be working with JR stamps. I adore their stamps and I just love your style, so it’s a match made in heaven. I am looking forward to your continued success and watching you flourish in your new role. You have so much to offer the crafting community.
As for card sizes, a good potion of the time it’s A2, but I really enjoy making 5″ x 7″ cards. I enjoy the creative freedom with that size and you don’t have to make things so terribly tiny. What I find very interesting is store bought cards are mostly 5″ x 7″ and 6″ x 9″, so why is it that crafters make them so small? Lol! I know it mostly comes down to waste and I usually find uses for most of my scraps. But, I would rather see (literally be able to see) my cards embellishments and attributes than to make something small just because the industry says so. So I guess that’s my two cents. Thank you for the opportunity to play along. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and again, Congratulations!!
Congratulations Becca!! So happy for you to be blessed with this opportunity. This is a win, win, situation, you get to do what you love, and we get beautiful stamp sets designed by you!
I like to have 5.5×4.25 size card
Congratulations!! It has already been said this is a win-win situation. We win either way. This is really great news. Best of luck to you/
Good luck with your new venture!! I like the first stamp I saw , haven’t checked the others out yet. I hope everything works out good for you!. I usually make an A2 card most of the time, cause I have a lot of envies that size, lol!
Wow! Becca! Your stamps are beautiful! I prefer to use the A2 size cards most of the time.
I am so very happy for you & where u are today. I know it has been a long hard road but u have persevered & stood w/ the Lord. I know He will continue to bless you & hold u tight in His arms. Thanks so much for sharing. It means so much to me & I’m sure, to so many others.
Everything happens in life for a reason and God does not give us more than we can handle and he knew you could handle everything and see you did and wow have you bounced back and come back with a bang.. What a new Grown up Lady you have become.. A woman in your own making and one who can stand on your own and shout proudly, “Hey, Look at me, see what I can do and I can do it by myself and I am proud and I am one and I am made from God I will continue to survive!!” So be proud Becca.. You did it by yourself, you did it.. we helped, but you did it… So Be Proud of everything you do and keep going and don’t let anyone stop you and we will take everything you throw at us.. we love you and we love everything you do.. You have had an amazing year very sad, but you made it! And yes, I LOVE your new stamps.. So wonderful!
Many hugs, Jean
Congratulations! Your first stamp set and the card you created with it are so beautiful! May you be richly blessed in this new chapter of your life! I make some A2 cards, but more often choose 5″ x 6.5″.
My favorite size card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. I prefer this size because it is easier to keep the postage down.
OMG!!! I can’t believe this!!! I love this stamp. I am all over fancy filigree or flourish stamps. I do A2 sizes 99% of the time. Good Luck on your new adventure. I know someone is watch over you from above!!! HUGS
I am so excited to read your posts it is the 1st thing i do when i turn on my computer, you are such a blessing and an encouragement! I pray for you and so happy your life is going in the direction God wants you to go for that is always the best path. Thank you for your inspiration.
I am so glad that you have found something that feels right for you. I quit work to care for my mother who had multiple myeloma. You have been an inspiration to me. God bless you in your new endeavors.
BTW my go to card size is usally a 6×6″ or a 5 1/2 x 7 3/4″ card.
Adding my Congratulations as well. It is wonderful that the Lord has
opened a way for you. He always knows our needs before we even ask.
So glad you wont have to give up your blog. That would be terrible for us who recognize your great talent and try to emulate you in our crafting. You
have been such and inspiration.
It’s always said that when God closes a door somewhere he opens a window.
Your web site has been lovely to visit all the time and everyone would miss it.
You are an inspiration
Way to go Becca!! Best wishes for your future endeavors with JustRite. My favorite card size has become larger than the old standard 5.5 x 4.25. Whenever I can, I choose something between a 4.5 x 6.25 up to a 5.5 x 8.5 for several reasons (PROS):
1. I can cut the card base from one 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock.
2. I can purchase envelopes that fit those sizes.
3. I can put more ‘stuff” on the larger cards.
1. More “stuff” takes longer & costs more to make.
2. The postage on most larger cards (area size or thickness) is becoming almost impossible to fund, especially on anything sent out in large numbers such as Christmas cards, event invitations, etc. Therefore, I can only afford to make the larger cards when they will be hand delivered.
Congratulations, Becca! That’s great news! My 2 go-to sizes are a half sheet 5.5 x 8.5 inches for a really large card. But a size I love that gives me a little more room than a quarter sheet (5.5 x 4.25) is 4.5 x 6 inches which fits in an A6 sized envelope (4.75 x 6.5 inches). I have to mail all my cards to family and have to stick with common sizes that will fit in mailing envelopes.
My wish list would be a whole alphabet of individual fancy capital letters like in the backgound set, but possibly with the ability for customers to order two or three letters at a time to be used for a fancy monogram. I have looked and looked and can’t find any anywhere with as beautiful a script design as are in your new stamps. They would be so useful for thank-you notes.
I so enjoy your blog and look forward to all your creations. Congrats on your new stamp line!! I’m going to preorder for sure!! I love filigree!! Your stamp designs are right up my alley! You are very talented, God truly put you in the right place at the right time!
God Bless You!!
How wonderful! Congratulations! I look forward to seeing your cards everyday…it has become a routine and I would be sad if you were to stop. So glad you have come out with your own line of stamps. I know they will just add to the beauty of your cards. My favorite size of cards are A2 less room to fill up :)
Your stamp sets are gorgeous Becca – but then I would have expected nothing but that from you! Comgratulations on this wonderful new opportunity and directiom in your life!! My favorite card size is 5 x 7…I like a bigger card!
Oh my goodness! What a wonderful opportunity for you and a bonus for all us crazy stampers!!! Isn’t it fantastic how things seem to work out for the good? (Romans 8:28) Thank you for taking the leap and may the years ahead be good to you.
Congratulations!! Sometimes we just have to trust.., it’s very hard and scary at times. I love your style and talent. Obviously so do a lot of others. Thank you for sharing!!
CONGRATULATIONS! You so deserve this — and we, as fans, are so lucky to be able to have a part of you like this. Thank you!
Congratulations, Becca. Beautifuls designs. All the best to you in this new endeavor.
I can”t imagine anyone I could be happier to hear such a wonderful announcement from! The fact that you are in such a “peaceful” place emotionally and spiritually gives me such encouragement. And your new opportunity is so perfect for the “Becca” we’ve all come to know and love. I look forward to every post, every entry. As for a card size, I can not manage on a mere A2. I reach for a 5″ x 6 1/2″ 95% of the time where I can add all the lace, flowers, embellies that I want and let the postage fall where it may! May happiness be yours.
Congratulations! I usually don’t comment but I’m so excited with your new stamp line!!! I love your style and have learned so much from you. God bless your new direction.
Congratulations Becca!! While I do not post often, I do follow your beautiful blog daily and I am so happy for you! You are an exquisite designer, I am so in love with your cards and designs. The new stamps are awesome! I wish you all the best:) I like square cards and 5 x 7 primarily.
You have been and will continue to be an awesome spokes woman for
JustRite. This was indeed a partnership made in heaven, may it last a long, long time. Love JustRite and love you, it is perfect!!
My go to card size is 6 x 6, I always have too much I want to put on my cards to make them smaller, unless of course I am doing simple notecards, then the size is 4 x 5.
Hugs & Smiles
I wish you a pleasant journey in this new adventure! How wonderful for you- and us!
I live in Germany and my go to size is a-5, which is 14.8 x 21 cm folded in half (14.8 x 10.5) I make about half each in portrait and landscape. It’s half the sheet of our normal a-4 and fits perfectly into envelopes. I personally like square cards but as 14.5 seems too small and larger paper is so expensive, I don’t make very many.
I love your first set- any chance of Justrite putting out a set of your beautiful Capitals? I don’t buy many of the sets, they’ve just got too many things (sentiments) I can’t use, but I’ve got most of the alphas and love them!
I am soooo looking forward to your continuing story and so glad you won’t have to give up this blog. It’s like visiting with my sister each time I find you here. ((((((Becca))))) big hug!
Becca. I’m so happy for you AND for us! I love your designs, you are very, very talented and generous. I like 5X7 card size as I have more area to “play” with. Thank you!
Hi Becca, Congratulations! I am soooo happy for you that this has all fallen into place. Wonderful news for you!
Your first release looks very pretty, and so *you*.
Standard card size for me (in Australia) would be A5, just like Dori mentions above.
Thanks for sharing your ongoing journey. Hugs!
Something good was definitely on the way! You have blessed me, and now will continue to do so in a whole new way. Cynthia
Warmest congratulations, Becca…I am so pleased for you…such wonderful news for you and for many crafters too!!! Thank you for sharing your joy with us, as well as your many talents!! My standard size cards are 6″ square. Looking forward very much to seeing what you do next!! Hugs, Janet xx
Thank you for your letter. My Daughter of 34, Her Husband Past away as well. She has worked on the grief process. it has been 31/2 years. God has brought her a wonder Man to her life. She is so in-love with him. He is crazy about her. God has his plans for us even when it seems so dark. The light comes shining in . Thanks Becca. I would love to win the stamps.
Congratulations, Becca! Love the set you’ve designed—simply gorgeous! So glad things have worked out for you and that we can look forward to what you come up with next! As for my card size, I make all sizes, but my ‘go to’ sizes are the standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ or a 5 1/2″ square. Good luck on your new venture!
Congratulations Becca, this is indeed wonderful news! I wish you all the very best in your new venture and hope it lasts as long as you want it to. My go to card size is a simple A5, perhaps I don’t experiment enough for fear of failure. Maybe I should take a leaf out of your book and try more! Your projects are beautiful and truly inspiring and your story has touched the hearts of many people. Good luck for the future Becca and I look forward to reading more in the months to come.
(P.S. I am an international follower from Wales, UK.)
Congratulations Becca. I know you will be very successful in your new venture and I love your first stamp sets!!!! I mostly make A2 size cards. Thanks for all you share with all of us. Your blog is so inspiring and your cards beautiful and so creative!!! Thanks too for the chance to win one of your new sets!
I just want to say it simple: You deserve it, you are made to prosper, and it is the right time, as you said. His grace comes in His time. Bless you.
Becca, Your blog is an inspiration to so many of us, your creativity is wonderful and the way your faith shows through your blogging is inspiring. I am so pleased for you (and selfishly for myself also) that things are working out so you can have an income, keep creating, keep blogging, and we can keep reading. Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us. God Bless You
How appropriate that you start working at a company called JustRight.
You had me worried. I thought you were having to go in a different direction. I was so glad to read that it is an even more creative direction. Thank you for letting us share in your gift. Thank you Carol G.
Congratulations, Becca!! Isn’t it wonderful how the Lord works! Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful sets and creations!
Gorgeous stamps, congratulations! I don’t really have a ‘go to’ card size but find that different stamps, die cuts etc determine the size of the card. That’s why I don’t like to precut my A4 and 12×12 card.
Congratulations, Becca! What wonderful news! As for a card size, I usually make the standard A2 size cards, but I often enjoy the bigger decorating room of 5 x 7 cards. Thanks for the chance to win one of your new sets!
So happy for you and for us crafters tobe able to share in your creative talents, love your stamp can,t wait to see what you are going to have for us,I know we here in Australia will be supporting you in your new creative venture.
Thank you for sharing your talent, and I’m happy you will be sharing more in the future. Go to your blog everyday. Love the new line and looking forward to more added. Love JR and will be ordering soon! I make all sizes depending upon inspiration, but enjoy A7.
Well done you!
So pleased for you.
My favourite size of cards tend to be 6×6
Dear Becca Where do I start to tell you how excited I am to see what you are doing. And how very excited you must be to start your own line of stamps. I can hardly wait to purchase them. I have been following you
since you first started this blog and looking back I don’t think there is a more deserving person especially after all you have gone thru. Everyone is going to be sending Becca cards now and people will just love them.
My most used card size is 5 by 6.5 as I think this size makes a very
nice size card.
Please accept my GOOD WISHES on your new undertaking. I can only wish you the best.
WOW Becca! That’s absolutely wonderful!! I just love the first peak at your stamps. You’ve done well girl! May God continue to bless you as you step out in faith. God is Good :)
Oh Becca I am so excited for you! Your own line of stamps that is fantastic and I can not wait to get my hands on them. I am so happy for you.The sky is the limit for you so you go girl! Thank you for all that you do for us you are the most amazing and talented person.
I like to make 6 x 6 cards they just seem like the perfect size to me.
Becca the Lord works in strange ways we just have to trust in him
Congratulations you deserve this
Dear Becca, I love your blog and have had it in my favorites for years. I am so Happy for you and just LOVE justRight stamps :) After losing my beautiful sister earlier this year and my son 22 yrs ago to the dreadful disease i understand the grief you have been feeling . I find that losing myself into creating something helps so much.
I don’t have a particular size of card but I am not fond of tiny cards as I always want to fit lots on it :)
Take care – looking forward to seeing more of your stamps- they are great!
How Awesome!!!!! When God closes one door….he opens another….and it’s about time that you did something like this….I know each one of these will be amazing….because it’s coming from your heart…..I’m truly so exciting for you….and know I will be buying these…..
Fabulous news Becca. So happy for you!
congratulations , I love your designs, your cards are amazing
justrite are one of my favorite stamps, I mainly do 6″x6″ and 8″x8″ cards
cannot wait for these stamps…pam (UK)
So happy for your success! You’re such a sweet & talented lady- We shouldn’t be surprised. The sets look great, & as always, I love your card!
I generally make a std. 4.25 x 5.5, just because they are easier to get in the mail, but will do a 5 x 7 for a really special occasion. Thanks Becca, & congrats!
My go to size card is 4.25? x 5.5?. You always have lovely things to show us Becca and you deserve this opportunity. Dianne
Yeah! You go girl! When one door closes, another opens. How fortunate for all of us, that you have chosen to go through the door to where you ‘fit’ best! We would so miss you, had you chosen to go elsewhere. So…thank you, again and again for sharing your talent and inspiration with everyone, so freely. Love the stamps, very ‘you’. Look forward to lots more. Every good wish for your future venture, have lots of fun.
Regards and Good Luck.
It’s so wonderful to know that the stamps were created by a person that has a true interest in improving the art form. But what is more wonderful is that you have sought God’s wisdom, waited for an answer, and have the faith to follow where he leads you. God Bless you in all that you do.
What wonderful news for you, and for the stamp world. Your work is so beautiful. You are an inspiration to all of us. I make the std. 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 card size all the time and more of a simple card, but I am inspired by you many times. Good Luck and Gods Blessings to you.
Congratulations! God is always there. I like to think that if I “look for the messenger” I will eventually find out what his plan is for me. Sometimes it is hard but always worth the challenge. It has led me on a journey “beyond my wildest dreams”.
I use the 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ cards because I make cards for Operation Write Home and that is the size that is needed.
Good luck on this new path in your life. Love the first stamp!
WOW, congratulations Becca. What an amazing job you have accomplished. Thanks for the chance. Hugs, Nellie.
Congratulations! We are so blessed to have you as our friend. Your willingness to let us into your heart and home, your willingness to share your talent, wisdom and expertise, and your willingness to have us all be a part of this most special ‘community’ of crafters is truly ‘amazing’!
Best of luck to you in your new and exciting adventure of designing. I cannot wait to see all your creations
Steps in a new and exciting direction – perfect for you and wonderful for us!
Although I admire your larger than life style tremendously and have cased some of your amazing designs and have been inspired to purchase many of the stamps you showcase, I still tend to do mailable 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 cards for most situations. So I love the layering look obtained with tricks rather than thickness. So your filligree fancies are on my buy list!
All good wishes as you travel this new path!
Becca, I’m so happy for you. There can’t be a better designer anywhere. I follow you daily. Each and every one of your cards is original and beautiful. To be able to purchase stamps that you have created is wonderful. Your talent touches me, teaches me, and inspires me.
I lost my best friend three years ago to this awful disease. You do live in a fog for quite awhile when someone precious leaves you, but you have managed to turn loss and grief into inspiration for others. God Bless You on your new journey. Congratulations! I’ll be here cheering you on.
How exciting and what a beautiful stamp set! Does this mean if I use stamp sets designed by you that I will be able to make cards as beautiful as yours? Maybe a little of your magic will rub off on me…My favorite card size to make is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2?, but I often make square cards as well, usually 4×4 or 5×5. I have to make envelopes for them if I make those, so it is easier to just do the standard size. Can’t wait to see the other two sets!
I am so impressed by your new line. I cant wait to see more of them.
What I have seen are just beautiful in spirit.
You know just what needs to be said and how to say it.
Thanks so much,
Dear Becca – wishing you all the best in your new venture with Just Rite! Your work is elegant and beautiful and I’m looking forward to seeing more. Take care, Jean.
I love your cards and your artistic ability, but your faith journey and how you share it is just as much a part of what I appreciate in you. You are so blessed to be able to design your own line of stamps. Don’t you think this is a progression of your journey that you started 4 years ago! Congratulations! This is well deserved.
Congratulations, Becca! I am so happy for you. I also am so happy that Amazing Paper Grace will continue. Your stamp sets are lovely, I can’t wait to use them. I do want to say- God has a plan! (Jeremiah 29:11) This is His plan for you at this time. Our God is so loving and kind. He gave you a biological and extended family, and then He gave you a different type of extended family through your blog. We are all very thankful for that. Now your blog family will grow as more people hear about you through your stamps. God has allowed you to touch so many lives through your blog and now He is extending your reach. There are many out there who need to hear your ongoing story. How wonderful that He opened this door for you.I wish you continued blessings in Him!
Becca: Huge congrats to you on this new venture. I saw your new set on JustRite and was thrilled. You have all our support and hugs and I am so anxious to see all you have in store for us! God bless you and May he be your constant Guide through this new phase of your life.
Awesome Becca, “Congratulations!”. I usually make the A2 cards because that is the one most people want, however, I enjoy making 5 x 5 square cards as there is more surface space to work and create with.
God is so good – all the time! How amazing for you – to have the job of your dreams – keep professing to the world of your faithfulness to God and amazing for all of us that God has allowed us to be on the journey with you as well as benefit from your talent He gave. Becca, having been there with your loss and having your life as ” you had planned it” turned upside down, I know how uncertain things can seem. But what a testiment to God this year of yours has been. YOU go girl, . . Joshua 1:9 is my life verse and keep it close – we will pray it for you. love ya – congrats
Okay… I am seriously excited about your new venture! Of all the cardmakers out there on the world wide web, you are, by far, my most favorite one. Your cards provide inspiration for all of my creations. Your post is the first one I open every day. Actually, you are the main reason I even log on to the internet every day. There’s just something about your work… Congratulations to you!
Hi Becca — So amazed at all you have been through and accomplished, I am thrilled that God has given you this amazing opportunity~! I needed to hear and read this post right now so thank you for it, and what a BEAUTIFUL card design and great stamps, I love the “Just the Right Words” one as well. Though I don’t check in often I do keep up with all your great ideas and feel blessed to have known you when I was in FL. Blessings to you and yours – Jenny
I’m so happy for you! Good luck in your new adventure. Thank you for the chance to win your first stamp set. I know that whatever you come up with will be beautiful.
GOD WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY EVEN WHEN WE HAVE DOUBTS!
Becca, looked at the entire line and it is awesome as all of your works are. I forgot to add to my post as well my go to size is an A2.
Oh Becca how absolutely exciting!!!!!!!
Of course, I love the beautiful stamps you created for Just-Rite.
I visit your blog daily, you have touched by life and I am
sure hundreds or even thousands of others. Your faith, strength
and creativity is such inspiration.
Wow, Becca. That was a long chat.
You are one blessed lady. This path has opened up for you at just the right time, this is the silver lining. My very best wishes and thoughts go out to you in your new venture.
Being on of your many International followers, you asked about fav card size. I mostly go with 5″x5″ (or slightly larger)x1/4″ as they will go through our Postal System at the normal postage rate. After that it gets expensive to post.
Big Hugs from across the pond x
Nothing at surprises me with you Becca. You are a person who can do anything ~ OF COURSE, WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD!! I have said so many times how you amaze me with your talents.
For some reason my favorite go to size is 6 x 6 (even though it requires additional postage) I guess because there is a little more room for designs and larger items.
I would love to win one of your first sets of stamps and especially since the first cutoff is the 9th – my birthday. Big Hugs to you Becca and CONGRATS!
Y ou are a truly amazing person. I love stamps that can be used on large cards. Love to win a set of your stamps.
Wow Becca! Big Congratulations sweetheart! You deserve the good things and the good Lord has blessed you! I love your stamp sets and they are on my wish list. Hugs Lori
Hi Becca….wonderful news! so pleased you have found something that you will thoroughly enjoy and matches your wonderful talent. This will enable a lot more people to enjoy your talents too. You are such an inspiration to so many people and with you now making cards with your own stamps for us all to see I am sure they will be a big hit! Thank you for the opportunity to win one of them. My favoured size of card is 4.25×5.5.
Good morning Becca, It’s so wonderful to hear of your new adventures. I’ve been following you for about a year and a half now. Don’t quite remember how I came about you but so very happy that I did. I’m absolutely thrilled that I did. I fell in love with your design style and I haven’t seen anyone else that puts so much heart into their design style. I made a card last night from your “The Color Purple” card. I love purple and green together and I had someone that I had to make something special for. I even added your rose ribbon to it. I’m so happy that you’ve been blessed with a wonderful talent and I love waking up every morning to see what’s new for the day. I know that you’ll do well on your new adventure. Your a wonderfully talented person blessed by God. Best wishes, Tammie
Congratulations Becca! This is such wonderful news for us stampers. Your talent still amazes me each and every day when I check your blog – sometimes I check it twice a day hoping for even more inspiration from you. Your cards are like no other.
Congratulations Becca! I am so glad you are getting the recognition you deserve! I am also glad your gift can support you. I love your new stamp sets. I am also happy you will be able to continue to blog. Your faith is an inspiration to us all!
Congratulations, Becca, on your new adventure in life! This is where you belong and where you were meant to be.
congratulations. good things come to those who deserve it. i am so happy to hear that crafting will be your focus. and the sneak peek looks wonderful.
i teach card classes and my go to size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. the reason for that choice is because i can easily get envelopes that size for my classes.
You are such a talented person. I love your cards, your comments, and your philosophy on life! I check your blog the first thing every morning and today was so excited to find you’ve used your talent to design stamps which are so positive and inspirational! Thank you for sharing your talents with us in this new way!
God is so awesome. He always opens the door at the right time. You are so blessed as are we who you have shared your talent and faith with.Praying that this next step in your walk will be pleasing to The Lord. Many Blessings to you and yours.
Oh yea my go to card size is 41/4 x 51/2 due to having ready inexpensive envelopes to use.
I’m afraid I’m too late3 wo win this beautiful stamp set but I just wanted to congratulate you on your success and on your faith. Sometimes things get a little tough but you just kept going and have inspired me to also. I was the caretaker for my mother for the last three and half years of her life ande have been the caretaker (and enabler) for my alcohlic brother for 6 and a half years. I finally realized that I could not support him in his drinking any longer…it wasn’t good for either of us. So I am alone again and this is good. God always comes through with what is best for you!
Becca, I am so happy for you. I check you blog every day. Not only do I check it daily, my husband shares your site with the customer he sees that are into card making. Your carda are the most beautiful I have ever seen. Have you thought abut publishing a book about your designs and techniques? I would be the first in line to get it. My card size depends on the stamps I use. Since I mail most of my cards, they need to be a size the post office will accept.
Well, Congrats to you.. I have followed your blog for many years and I have enjoyed seeing your wonderful talent.
Good luck on your new adventure.
I usually make the normal size card using the 8 1/4 x 5 1/2 paper if you make a bigger size you can always just put it in a 5×7 envelope and mail it at no extra cost.
What wonderful news. Love your blog and looking forward to stamping with your stamps.
Congratulations, Becca! This is awesome news!! I am so thrilled for you and loving your creations for Just Right Papercrafts! What a wonderful and perfect fit for you. I pray the Lord will continue to bless you in this endeavor!
BTW, my favorite card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 although I occsionally will attempt an unusual fold or different shaped card.
How wonderful for you, Becca, to be able to continue in your creative endeavors. This line of stamps is beautiful but that’s hardly surprising because everything you do is also. I have to have all three of these sets! I am always drawn to the standard A2 size because it just seems to fit my needs, but occasionally I make the 3×3 size just because they’re so darn cute!
I am SOO excited to hear your blessed news. I go to your blog almost every day for inspiration and am never disappointed. You will do very very well. Looking forward to your new designs
You have inspired me with the courage you have shown during your time of grief and healing. I am so happy that you will be able continue to do what you do best. I love your cards and now your new line is and will continue to be awesome! Thank you in advance for all the good things to come.
My size of a card is 5.5 by 4.25, that way I will get two cards from 1 sheet of 8.5 by 11 cardstock and there is less waste than when I have to use a 12 by 12 sheet of cardstock. Keep up the good work Becca I really enjoy viewing your blog and I do it almost every day.
I forgot to add that I usually make 4.25 x 5.5 size cards but also love making 5.5 x 8.5 and sometimes just make any size small cards as little itty bitty attachments for small gifts, etc.
Becca, I am so happy for you! Onward and upward! Your blog is truly inspiring, and I am always so impressed with how strong your faith is, and how you always seem to look for the bright side.
My “go-to” size of card is the A2, I think because it is so easy to get envelopes in bulk for that size!
Such wonderful news for you & us to be able to own your designs .Things do change for a good reason Good Luck
The stamping community is lovely in the way that it loves and supports its members. Your story is a part of that community – thank you for sharing! And for the question: A2 is my go to size … it is large enough to matter and small enough to be convenient. God bless.
I was holding my breath when I first started reading your blog because I thought you were going to say that you were going to stop blogging because you had a job in a different field. Now that I can breathe again I want to tell you how happy I am for you. I, too, am a widow and I know how hard the first few years are. I definitely am going to pre-order these sets because I love them. I am happy, delighted, ecstatic, overjoyed and any other positive adjective there is, for you.
I was so excited about your announcement that I forgot to tell you that my favorite size card is an A2.
Becca, I am truely happy for you. Your blog brings a lot of joy and light into my life. I look forward to each of your e-mails. I love your Style. It is so gracious and humbling. Thank you, Becca. Dena DeShirlia (aka) Rainbowee
Oh Becca, what wonderful news. Congratulations, my friend. You are such an inspiration to me. Since the first time I discovered your blog I have felt truly blessed. I have found another sister. I can’t wait to check in with you every day. You inspire me in so many ways, spiritually and with your amazing talent. I thank you Lord for allowing me to have you in my life. May God continue to bless you.
Congratulations on this well deserved opportunity. Your creations are so edifying and this first reveal is a testament to your creativity and faith. I also love the Past-Present-Future images in your post and hope that they appear in a set of stamps. God’s blessings on your continued work.
I too am a 4.25 x 5.5 card maker.
My cards is usually ending up as 6inx6in. I can make it clean and simple, or I can use a lot of stash. But I also often use a spellbinder die as a base. I am so glad you are continuing blogging. This site is really an inspiration to us all.
Congratulations on your new vocation. I knew you would be a master if you ever tried to do this. I am very happy for you and would encourage you on continuing on this journey. You are certainly off to a good start!!
Congratulations and BEYOND My Cyber Friend and Inspiration! I know there are better words but these popped out first – “YOU GET AS GOOD AS YOU GIVE”! And you Becca have given sooo much to every company that you have designed for and have shared that with us. I can now go to a gallery and even if I don’t know that you should be there I can generally pick out your beautifully crafted designs before I ever see your name. Just Rite knew that you belonged in the crafting world now. It was time to leave the grief in the past and hold the memories in your heart and Gee Whiskers! it couldn’t have happened to a nicer, more caring person than YOU! Ranger got Tim Holtz from a Micheals store and Just Rite picked THE perfect new creator just brimming with ideas waiting to come out. WOWZERS! We all win AGAIN! I hope you never come down from that cloud of happiness you must be floating on – ALLLLLLL The Very Best and I just can’t wait to see what’s ahead!
Congratulations!!!! You are so deserving of this, Becca, and I’m so happy for you…something good is always on the way…your talent is extraordinary and your faith so strong and God’s love will see you through…My go to card is mostly 6×6 because I can put a lof of flowers, bling and decorations on them…hugs to you…
Way to go, Becca! I’m glad that things are working out for you! I’m excited to see your new stamp line! I think you are a very talented lady. I always enjoy your posts and I learn so much from you. Good luck in your future!
Congratulations Becca, how exciting for you. Explains your hectic life recently. Can’t wait to see the rest of the line. ……ash
I got so excited I hit submit before I finished. I like a 5×7 card especially with the all the new dies and toys that make it so easy to fill the space with stamping and let’s not forget a ribbon embellishment! I am comfortable with the standard A2 if I happen to be mass producing for family occasions when asked.
I think it’s wonderful that you are now designing! You are very creative. My go to card size is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4. or half of an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet. I like this size because it’s easy to work with and it gets made faster than a bigger card. Thanks for the chance to win!
congratulations!! I love your set and am off to preorder. thanks for a chance to win! If I win I know exactly who I will gift it to!! Can’t wait to see the rest.
I’m so excited for you Becca!!! These are all so lovely… I can’t wait to add them to my collection!
God bless you Bekka! You are indeed an inspiration to all of us “silent” people out here!
It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving and wonderful person Becca! You are truly an inspiration! As a crafter, woman and person! So,so very happy for you!
Your card is absolutely gorgeous and your stamp set is just amazing! Love it!
My fave go to card size is 6 x 4.5. This way I can fit lots of stamps, embellies and ribbons and trims! ;-)
Congratulations and always Keep the Faith!
Becca…what a wonderful and beautiful surprise! This definitely gives me such a great feeling for you to spread your wings to give us more of your amazing talents. I am and will continue to be a faithful fan and follower. I loved meeting you in person in Akron in April. Looking forward again when the opportunity presents itself, when you expose your stamps to all of us stamping convention enthuseists. I only wish I had bought one of your bow makers at the Akron show, but due to budget considerations, I was going to go back and find your original post so I could make my own, but unfortunately as much as I search for that blog is not to be found. I will know better when buying your stamps. Again, much well deserved success.
Becca – You are soooooo creative. I would love to receive these Becca original stamps. Hope I win!
Becca I’m loving your new stamps. I even had to tell my husband your good news last night and I only had to say Becca and he knew who I was talking about. I’m so thrilled for you!
I absolutley love this set. It is just what I’ve been looking for. I cannot wait to get a set. I prefer doing the A2 size cards. Seems to me most people do. But I do larger ones when I have the envelopes to go with them.
Thanks for all your inspiration. I love your cards.
Congratulations on your new endeavors! I can hardly wait to see your new stamps! I, like you, make large cards. 5×7″ or 6×6″. I put too much work into them to make small cards.
You are an amazing woman, and your faith is a wonderful testimony to the God who created us and loves us. It is a very hard thing to trust him through such difficult times in our lives, and such a blessing to see how He works everything out for our good, according to His will for each one of us. God bless you. Keep trusting Him. This opportunity is truly a gift from Him and you are obviously very capable of the task. Thanks for sharing with us.
Congrats on the new stamp lines. They are gorgeous! My go to card size is 4.25″ x 5.5″ I like that size because I can fit so many pretty element on and use a whole piece of paper without trimming or wasting any of it.
Best of luck to you. You are definitely one of the most talented folks that I watch on the web.
It’s always amazing to see the results that follow when we put our trust in our faith. Congratulations – you deserve it!!
I am so happy for you, and these sets are just beautiful. As others have said, I look forward to future releases. I initially made my cards A2, but my husband and first person to get in on my “reveal” always commented that they were too small, so I went up to 5 x 6 1/2; however it depends on the design of the card, so I still use A2 a great deal.
Oh Becca I am so happy for you, Isn’t God good!!! I am so happy to hear all this great news!!! I met you in Akron but have “Known” you for a number of years now via your blog. I feel as if I know you, sure wish you lived closer so we could go for tea LOL. My prayers are with you for continued blessings!!!
PS lately I have been making 5×7 cards and using them to make wall art on canvases, but still love the A2 and slightly larger.
Becca I am so happy for you.
Oh my Becca, what a beautiful set!!!! My LSS just started carrying “Justrite” stamps so I will be sure to let her know to order your stamp sets for the store. This set is very nice, I frequently make the A2 (4 1/4 x 5) cards, but I also love to make a 6×6 card too. Thanks again for the opportunity to win one of your lovely stamp sets and I wish you much success on your new line of stamps! I know you have some beautiful designs to come you are a very talented lady. I was really looking forward to your Esty store, but I know you have much greater things to come!!!
You go girl! You bless others with your talents so it is wonderful that you are taking this step. I usually make A2 cards because I need a lot of them.
Congratulations Becca! So excited for this new journey you are on! =) I make the traditional sized cards (A2) for the most part.
Wow, this is amazing I am so happy for you…and I am looking forward to seeing all your designs….God is always working behind the scenes for us and it’s amazing when He starts to reveal it to us…I think my favorite go to size of cards is 7X9…it’s hard to find envelopes so I use boxes…my cards are usually thick with bows and flowers that they need boxes anyway…and I love the effects of the embellishments on the larger cards….:)
What fun for you to venture out into new arenas showcasing your talent! Congrats!!!!!!
Congratulation my dear friend Becca. May you reap all the rewards of your hard work. I wish you success.
I started a comment yesterday but I don’t think is was submitted–it was a crazy day for me and my family! so if this is a second comment I am so sorry.
I am so excited for you as you begin this new career!!! This is just perfect for you. It is a big plus for me, too, since I am a big fan of vintage crafting. As far as favorite card size, I love all of them but mostly do 4.25″X5.5″ or 3.75″X7.25″ for mailing.
What “Amazing” news. Sorry about the pun. I am so happy that you are taking on this new adventure. The cards I usually make are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch. I do this as I can get 2 out of a piece of 8 1/2 by 11 inch cardstock.
Becca, I am so happy for you and wish God’s blessings on your endevor.
As to my fav card size, it is usually 5 x 7 inches.
Congratulations Becca – My heart filled with emotion when reading this post. God knows our heart and I’m once again in awe of what God does and at the correct moment if we just trust his promises. I’m so totally thrilled for you and us crafters have been blessed so many times by your creative talent and ministry already – I can’t wait to see what is coming going forward. These new stamps are beautiful. A7 is my card size. I will continue to lift you up in prayer. God is glorified…
Love your cards and creativity … love, love, love the Becca Bits! 99.9999% of the time my go-to card size is 4.25 x 5.5. Good luck with your new venture … I know you’ll do well.
Beautiful stamps, Becca! So happy things are working out for you and all your creative endeavors! That is a positive outcome for all of us, your faithful followers! My favorite card size is 5 x 7. More room to play with stamps, ribbons, die cuts, flowers, bling, etc.!
Congratulations, God is so faithful! Thank you for bringing your love of Him into your creativity. In other words, sharing your gifts. I wish I could answer your cardsize question with a diffinitive answer but I make cards to fit the occasion and they blossom as I creative. The end result is rarely what I envisioned and usually so much better.
Sorry, I forgot: My go to card sized are A4 and 6×6. I like making larger size cards.
My favourite card size is 4 1/8 x 5 7/8. This is the maximum size I can get into a C5 envelope and still get 2 card bases from our standard A4 size card. Also any bigger and the postage goes up as well.
Wowaz…….They knew what they were doing when they picked you. These sets are fabulous and I am going to have them all.
BTW Becca, when I was drowning in grief almost 3 years ago a Counsellor told me that I would never get “past it” or “over it” (and people do expect you to), but that I would find a “new normal”. I am still finding it, and feel like I am on my way.
Oh what amazing things that are coming your way! Congrats to you- and lucky us! Blessed to be a believer, and having faith is what you are! WOW!
I tend to go with 5 1/2 x’s 4 1/4 or 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 because that is what size envelopes I have. My PO makes me pay extra postage for ANY lumps or bumps or if the card is bigger than A2…..seriously!
Congratulations and good luck with your new venture Becca. You are a great inspiration. Anne
Congratulations with your new venture! I have always enjoyed reading your blog & seeing your wonderful creations.
The size card I usually make is 4.25″ x 5.5″. I find it’s most convenient for me because I can cut an 8.5″ x 11″ in half to get 2 of this size card.
Such beautiful new stamps! I really love the one about the loving thoughts sent to friends…awesome! My go to card size is A2. Hope this helps.
Huge congratulations to a person most deserving. I love your blog and find you inspiring, both in creativity and faith.
Congratulations!!!!! I always feel so inspired by you and your creativeness. The stamps sets are just beautiful and I cant wait to order them!!!
Wishing you the very best God has to offer. After all, He only gives us his best.
Dearest Becca, I couldn’t be happier for you, or for us. So glad that God has opened a door for you. Your designs are just so beautiful and elegant, and deserve to be showcased. We are so blessed to be able to buy these gorgeous designs and create pieces inspired by you. Thank you again for all you have shared, and continue to share with us. May you continue to be abundantly blessed.
You go girl! You are such an inspiration to so many of us out here. Your projects are awesome and I for one am so glad you will continue to share your ideas and tips and bring some sunshine into our days.
Congratulations Becca on your first set of stamps, they are lovely, and oh so elegant. I am always inspired by your faith, what comes across to me is your realism, being a child of God does not mean that everything is happy ever after and the way that your faith sees you through the daily happenings always inspires me. You are a truly amazing person and I am so glad that you have taken this new venture on.
I hope that your stamps will be available to purchase here in UK too.
Re the card size, I go between 4×6 cards, 4×4 and 5×5 cards, because I can make envelopes for each of these from A4 paper – the frugal part of me is always to the fore!
I’m so happy that you are head toward a new positive journey. We will be right there going with you. Enjoy the ride.
Hi Becca, Congratulations on creating your first set of stamps. My go to paper size is A5. Most of my card stock is A4 so it’s simplest to just fold it in half. However, for special cards I alter the size to best show off my stamped images & customise an envelope to fit. Can’t wait for more previews tomorrow.
Your new line of stamps is terrific and all the best of luck in this new venture!! Your creativity and your faith are great inspirations to me. Many of the above comments are my sentiments also it is important to remember that tomorrow is a new day and I pray God will continue to give your strength as you go through the healing process. My favorite size cards to make are 4.25 X 5.50 and 5 X 7s. Wishing you all the very busy life has to offer.
When I started reading this post, my heart began to sink as I was sure that I was going to read that this was the end of your blog. I am delighted that you are continuing on and that there are some wonderful new developments in your life. You deserve all the good things that come your way. Sadly, I have some insight into what your year must have been like. It takes awhile to figure out where “we belong”, I am so happy that you have found where you fit. Congratulations, Becca, I am sure this is just the beginning for you. My favourite card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (for mailing purposes), 6 x 6, some 5 x 7.
Becca congratulations!!! How wonderful for you!!!!
My go-to size has always been an A2, (4.25 x 5.5), because I can get two out of an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock. I really like working on a 5″ square too, because there’s more space to create on!
Gorgeous card! My go-to size is A2–it just makes efficient use of the 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock and fits the stamps I have. When I go to much bigger it is hard to fill up the space.
OK – realistically as comment #723, you may not read this…or maybe not for a long time, especially with CHA around the corner…but I’ll still leave this comment as I want to put in my voice with all your other fans, family and friends that it’s been a joy for us to BE HERE WITH YOU, BECCA! You have been uplifting and inspirational for us as well. I am honored to be walking this journey with you, through faith and life we share much and through sharing we help to carry the burden and celebrate the victories!
I can’t say a big enough HIP HIP HOORAY! for your licensing deal with Just Rite!!!! So super happy for you! Honestly, I’ve wondered why you weren’t doing it earlier as it seems a perfect fit for you.
I’ll also be at CHA next week! I’ll be mostly at Penny Black booth, doing an event with Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko, and some time each day seeing the show and visiting. I’ll pop in to Just Rite and hopefully we’ll finally give hugs in person!
Meanwhile, cyber hugs!
I never leave comments on blogs so this is a first for me. Becca, your blog is the first place I visit when I turn on my computer each day. I am so glad that you are going to continue to inspire people with your words and your creative talents. My favorite card size is 6 x 6. Mainly I started making cards this size because I am a scrapbooker who had plenty of 12 x 12 sheets of cardstock and could cut them in half to make two cards. Just recently I started making some 5 x 7 cards but still prefer the 6 x 6. Your stamp designs are just beautiful and I’m truly happy for you.
What a delight when such a talented , generous person is rewarded.
JRD is wise and fortunate to associate with you. Congratulations!
I seem drawn to A2 most of the time.
I am so happy for you….This is so well deserved and couldn’t happen to a
nicer, kinder, gentler,more generous sweet person….and I Love the stamps….but I already knew you were a great designer….
Good things come to those that have the patience and wait. Everything works out well in the end. Very proud of you for getting yourself together, not sure if I could do the same.
I’ve always followed your site and blog, you are so talented. Keep up the great work. I’m sure your new endeavor will be great.
Becca, so happy for you, so well deserved! You are such a great designer, I always go to you first for ideas. The designs you have come up with are beautiful and I will certainly be ordering them. Since I am new to cardmaking cannot specify a size I like yet, but tend to go pretty much by what you say, of course! I have been pretty sick lately so I am really just designing my first tryouts this week, will let you know how they come out!! You are such a delight and truly like so many others you make my day! Thanks and God bless you!
Congratulations! I know with your style and love of scripture wonderful things are going to come of your endevour. I know how hard it is to get back on track after the loss of a loved one.
You inspire me. You also remind me-God is always present.
Congratulations and best of luck in your new venture. You are an inspiration in so many ways. This is a beautiful set. I am very excited to see the rest of your designs.
Congratulations Becca. I just started trying to make “flip it cards”, any suggestions?
Congratulations on your new opportunity. I have to say I am grateful to know you will continue your blog. It’s the only one I never miss.
Wow, Becca! What an amazing set. I am so happy for you – following your dream and doing what you love. You are truly such an inspiration in so many ways!! Hugs, Kelly. :)
congradulations. i off to justrite to order your stamps for my shop. i want them all. i dident know you were on etsy,off to be customer there too. your blue card is beautiful thanks lori
Congratulations, Becca! I am so excited for you. It seems like the perfect path for you to take. Your first stamp set is lovely! And so is the card! Can’t wait to see more.
I am so excited for you Becca, blessings and good luck on ths new adventure. Anything you create is a lovely thing to behold!!!
Wow – what a journey. Many of us have followed you for several years and know only a portion of the events in your life. This is a wonderful window opening when the door closed last year. John has to be proud of your perseverance.
My go to size card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 – just because it fits into the envelopes that I have. I know – boring – and someday I may change that ‘normal’.
Congratulations, Becca! I’ve pre-ordered already…. I am so proud of your going forward.
Becca, Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I have admired your creativity for some time. This is a wonderful opportunity and new chapter in your life. I am loving your stamps already.
HOW EXCITING…I don’t know of anyone more deserving of this opportunity. You encourage soooo many of us, day in and day out, to push ourselves to try new techniques and styles and you give us a mountain of information to guide us in our papercrafting “world”. Your projects and designs are amazing, so who better to offer tools of the trade that exhibit your unique and special style? God has truly blessed you with such a talent. Thank you for sharing it with us. He is so AMAZING!!! Oh yeah, my “go to” card size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. They seem to be a quick and easy size for our church card ministry.
well here’s wishing you all the best your new endeavors. Lovely stamp sets. and as usual, lovely samples.
Have a great day
I wll add one of your sets to my “Want to buy” list, for sure. I especially like this one. Congratulations on the new venture into stamp design. JustRite has a jewel in you.
I recently found your site when looking for a “how-to”. What a talented blessing you are. I feel like I need to read your past posts to catch up. Your new stamp is beautiful. I usually use the 4.25 x 5.5 card size because I can get two cards from an 8.5×11 sheet. Most of my stamps fit that size. I’ll make larger cards for special occasions.
I have always been a big fan of your work. Wow! I’d say you have arrived. I am so happy for you and your new ventures. May your success continue to bring you happiness along with your looking skyward to see God’s love shining down on you.
Hugs, Diana Stewart
Congratulations! Wishing you every success in your new venture. Your stamps are beautiful and elegant just like everything else you create. Thank you for sharing your talent so generously. My usual card size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 because it is the most efficient use of paper.
My go to size is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 this is the size I was first taught on this size. It’s a manageable size and you get two cards out of an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper which I fins economical. Once in a while I will go with a larger card to give myself the freedom to stretch out and use larger embellishments.
Congratulations! I am excited for you!
Most of my cards are 5.5 x 8.5 and A 2.
I am pleased to read the strength in your posts. I do know how difficult it can be when you lose someone. It never really leaves and feelings surface with unexpected triggers. The path seems to be curving in your life and that is great news, designing stamps is probably just the first step. Creativity is bountiful in your designs. I like to work with square cards, many sizes…don’t know why…just do. I will cut my own size and make the envelope also. My heartfelt wishes for success with the lovely line of stamps!!
Congratulations! I’ve missed visiting your site the last couple of days due to having overnight guests. I couldn’t wait to get online because I do so love to see your beautiful new creations. Becca, you make me feel like I’m an old friend when I read your postings. I’m so happy that special blessings are coming your way. You don’t realize it but we (your faithful followers) receive blessings from you through the elegant cards and other paper creations you make and post for us to enjoy. Thanks so much and God bless.
Love this new stamp set. I really like that the pieces are separate and you can used them to create frames of different sizes and and even use them for other embellishments. I almost always make A2 size cards. Mostly because you can make two of them out of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock without wasting anything.
This couldn’t of happened to a more sincere person! Congratulations – keep that Faith, its working~ :)
Congrats on this wonderful opportunity. Love the sets and love all the lovely cards you make. I am a card maker and have been for the last 19 years. My how time flies.
What fantastic news! So happy for you. Your new stamp designs are incredible!
Becca, I am so excited and thrilled for you!!!!! Your stamps are gorgeous!!!
Congratulations, Bekka!!! A much deserved venture for you, and I KNOW you will be a success! Your initial stamp set is beautiful, and I’m looking forward (as I know many more are as well) to see what’s next!!!
I was so anxious to buy your stamps I forgot to answer the question to get my entry into the contest! So . . . . I like A 6 and A7 cards. Gotta add bling, layers and embellishments , ya know! Smile.
Oh, Becca! I am so excited for you, and for US!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on the stamps!
I am so excited for you and your new endeavor! Can’t wait to see more of your beautiful creations.
Good for you, Becca…congratulations! You deserve all the good coming to you!!
I visited the site and saw the stamps. I truly loved the capital Letters. Your cards have always been a favorite of mine. It is hard to take the giant forward. I’m sure you will do very well. You will be an asset to the company.
Best of luck to you.
I love checking in with you each day to see the beautiful cards that you have created. Now I can’t wait to see the new stamps.
I know what you mean about the grief as I lost my husband 18 months ago to a brain hemorrhage. It hasn’t gotten any easer and I don’t think that it ever will.
Becca, congratulations on your new endeavor. Just want you to know that I just started following your blog a few months ago, but you quickly became my favorite ” place to go” with that morning cup of coffee. I think it is wonderful that you have been given such a wonderful hand-up and I wish you only the best. I too understand the caretaker role, my Mother has alzheimers, and it is a hard road to go down. I find Amazing Paper Grace has become my haven of serenity. Thank you for that! Your grace, generosity, and geniune love- light shines through. You are truly a ” child of God” and I just love you for that. May God’s blessings fall generously on you and all you love.
Congratulations Becca! I’m SO happy for you!
WOW!! You are my inspiration and what keeps me going every day!! You deserve such a wonderful opportunity!! You earned it!! Your committment to us have been enjoyed by all, YOU are our blessing!! We need you more!! Hugs
I’m so excited for you, Becca. God has His hands in your life and you will succeed. I think you will have wonderful stamps can’t wait to get my hands on them.
This is a “natural fit” for you. Many blessings in your new venture. With so many good wishes, how can you go wrong.
I almost always go the 4 by 5.5 (whatever card number that is). I use this size because that is the most common envelope size in my area. I get the mot use out of an 8.5 by 11 sheet of CS.
Wow! God is GOOD! Many Blessings to you in this new adventure! Thank you again fro sharing your many God given and inspired talents with us all! Wonderful!
Oh yeah, my “go to” card size is 6 x 6 mainly because I have MANY scrapbooking 12 x12 papers!
Congratulations on your new venture Becca, your stamps are ‘amazing’!
My go to card size is usually 4 and 1/8″ by 5 and 3/4″.
Congratulations Becca on your new venture. My go to card size is usually 6″ x 4.5″
Wow….Wow….Wow. WOW!!! You’re right where you are supposed to be. Lucky us, we now have the chance to use these beautiful stamps.
Congratulations Becca, how wonderful for you.
I too, am caring for my hubby who is sufferinga terminal illness and my craft is my escape. Your story gives me hope for my life path in the future.
My “go to ” card size is 6×6. I seem to be able to do so much more with it.
Hi Becca, The stamps are really beautiful & I love the sentiments, especially the one about giving like the angels. It is so true.
My go to card size is 8” by 8”, as this is the size they stock at my local stationers.
Best wishes, Barbara
Hi Becca. This is such a wonderful post not simply because of your generosity, but that it’s such a warming story. Congratulations on your new product line. I wish you all the success in the world from the bottom of my heart!
I have followed you for a while now and am so happy for you and your new adventures. The card and stamp is beautiful!
I am sooo excited for you, Becca!! Isn’t it amazing that God puts you right where you need to be and right where he wants you to be!! Can’t wait to order your stamps!! I love what I’m seeing already!!

You are a great inspiratin and deserve all the happiness, successn and peace of mind and heart that have worked so hard to find. Good luck, Good speed you along in this new venture.
I’m so very thrilled at how God has made a way for you to use your talents!

My go-to card size is A2 (4 1/4 X 5.5).
Congratulations! I can’t wait to see all the beautiful things you will design. All your ideas are so stunning, they will be very blessed to have you.
I am thrilled for you Becca!! Congrats! The sets look wonderful & I’ll be placing my order for sure!!
How wonderful for you and so richly deserved, thank you for the inspiration you deliver with each posting
Wonderful! I have been a caregiver and it was impossible to return. I got a new job in a new field in a new state near family! I love your new stamps and your style is perfect for JustRite! I sure hope you will make a PDF cheat sheet of all the phrases we can make with the words set! The alphabet background is fab too. My cards are usually A2 or 5.5″ square, just because it is economical use of letter sized card stock!
First off, WAY TO GO!!! I am so proud of you Becca. You’ve come a long way and I’m glad I’ve gotten to see all the changes you’ve made in your life. I’ve faithfully read your blog and LOVE all the projects you make. You have a unique style that is all your own and you should keep it that way. You have a talent and I’m glad someone is willing to tap into that creative spirit you have. Congratulations on all your successes! Now to go shopping.
Becca, I am so happy with your new venture into stamp production. I know you will be a big success. Just thinking you will have to neglect your blog breaks my heart. Your cards and comments have been a bright spot for me each day.
Most of my cards are A-2 with occasional A-6 size cards if the stamp or card design calls for it.
Becca, this is a beautiful stamp, wonderful news, a whole new chapter in your life. I’m excited and happy for you, and know that you arrived where you are by following God’s plan for your life. God is great and merciful, always caring for us.
You go, girl!
What a testimony of God’s provision for you, Becca! May He prosper you in your new adventures! I for one seriously LOVE this line you have created – it fills a huge void. Kudos to you and sending prayers and blessings your way for much success!
Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Did not know you were a caretaker at one point. I had to do the same when my hubby got cancer. Quit work to take care of him (cancer made him paralyzed from the waist down) and then he died, and there I was. But life is good now, just like your’s! I’m so glad you are designing for Just-Rite! You will turn that company around! My card go to size is generally 6 X 6, as that gives me maximum size to be creative, and layer, layer…..Love ya, Sandy
Wow! Congratulations, Becca. So happy for you. My go to card to make is 5×5 or 6×6 square.
You are as amazing as your blog, Becca…your perseverance has paid off and I know this is only the first of many more ‘somethings’ to come for you…blessings as you continue on your journey, deepening your faith and trust in our Lord!
Keep moving forward, love the new stamps justrite are lucky to have your designs. Best wishes for the future
Keep moving forward, love the new stamps justrite are lucky to have your designs. Best wishes for the future my card size would be six by six or eight by eight inches.
793th comment, OMGoodness. Hope you never wonder whether you are appreciated and talented. You should be very proud of yourself. Love your new stamps and hope to win one or two, or three? thanks
You are a very wonderful and strong lady and also very talented. I love your cards, stamps and everything that has your name on it and congratulations to you and your design team for all the talent and beauty that brings to my life
I have admired your faith, your spirit, and your artistic ability for quite a while. You certainly deserve to have positive things happen for you. You can be certain, too, that all of us “followers” will support your fantastic joining with Just Rite.
Yes, God is still in the blessing business. I am so very proud of you. You deserve all the blessings that come your way. You have worked very hard and so unselfishly. You are truly amazing! Oh my goodness I can`t wait to get my hands on your creations! This is a blessing for me too.
My favorite card size is 5×7. This size allows me to be generous with my embellishments. It just makes the card look luxerious. Becca, thank you for all you do. I am sooo… happy and excited for you and me, because I will reap the benefits too by creating beautiful cards with your creations.
I am so excited over the good news that I forgot to comment on your gorgeous card. Pink is my favorite color also. This card is absolutely beautiful! TFS. Hugs Patricia
Just what has been needed! Am on my way to get on the wait list….
Wow what wonderful news for us and you and Just Rite. My go to card size is usually A2 because it is USPS friendly.
I love your work, your gifts, and your willingness to share….and YOU!
Have a great and blessed adventure.
If God brings us to it, he will see us through it. I love your blog Becca, God has given you many wonderful gifts. Thank you for sharing those gifts.
I am so happy for you………………as the saying goes *when God closes a door he opens another* and there is your answer even thought sometimes we really need to practice patience which I am not very good at. You are a very talented and giving person and good luck on your endeavors. I, too, saw God open a door today and my weight on my shoulders has lifted – I am so thankful He hears us. My favorite size card is an A4 card because of the postage and the convenience of making it from an 8 x 10 sheet of cardstock. Your card is awesome and I love your new stamps.
Oh my GOSH!!! Becca this is absolutely wonderful news! Your style is as amazing as you! Can’t wait to get these. Thanks for providing us with such fantabulous inspiration! Luv you!
Congrats Becca!! What a beautiful set and so you. The sets are amazing and Justrite is a great company.
Becca – I know this has been a bad year for you and I am so glad that you have found something that you can really enjoy. I know that you will be very successful. I love your work and look forward to seeing what you have to offer each day. My favorite size card is 4 1/4 X 5.5. Congratulations on your new endeavor and I know that you will be very successful. I love this stamp set. Thanks for sharing all your work with all of us.
Congratulations Becca!! The new venture sounds as though it is just what you have been looking for. I am so happy for you. The Lord is with you always. Thank you for all the sharing you do with all of us. Your first stamp is beautiful! I can hardly wait for the next one. Looks like I am going to have to get my pre-order turned in right away.
I like the 41/4 X 5 1/2 card size the best. Thanks for asking. Linda
What a beautiful stamp! Iris
What an awesome new adventure you are now taking. I wish you lots of fun and luck. Enjoy the new life change and embrace it. It will be an amazing journey. Good luck and thanks for a chance to win.
Lovely stamp …. congrats and I can hardly wait to see your others. Continued blessings …
WOW you are amazing! I do so love your blog and wonderful tutorials but what keeps me coming back is your faith. When I have a bad day I can count on you to inspire me. Thank you for all the wonderful projects!
Congratulations Becca.everything you do and say is very inspirational. Thank You
Becca, I truly know how difficult it has been for you….been there, done that and been a widow.
So glad you have found the happiness you deserve1
Becca, I love your blog, and you inspire me in so many ways, so I am so glad that you are not stopping your blog, but instead you have been given another opportunity to branch out in a new challenging direction, in a way you so much love and enjoy. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent with us all out here. You are simply the best. God’s richest blessing to you as you go forth in a new direction.
Becca, this is wonderful news. You always create such beautiful cards, etc. I am looking forward to seeing your stamps. Good luck and God bless.
Congratulations on your new journey! You are so deserving of this new direction for all you have given to us.
I usually mail A2 size cards, but if giving with a gift (wedding, birthday, etc), I will up the size & add more details.
Looking forward to using your new stamps & seeing what is in the works.
Enjoy the ride,
Congrats! God Bless!
Oh Becca!! They are beautiful!! I think you have found your calling!! You truly are a great designer & I believe you will always have good fortune using this fine talent you have.
Becca, I have been out of pocket for the last two weeks being with my daughter in Phoenix as she faced a new health treatment. I have missed checking your blog each day and am happy to be home and see what you have been up to. What a wonderful surprise that you will be creating a line of stamps. You are truly a very creative person and I am very confident that your stamps will be wonderful!! Am so looking forward to seeing them. I wish you much good luck with this new venture and will be excited to see where it takes you!
I love those little sayings.
Becca, What wonderful news! May God bless your new efforts with great success. Of that, I have no doubts at all. I usually send A2 cards, just because I can make more with 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock that way. However, after viewing your blog for a few months now, I’m trying my wings with larger cards and find 5 x 7 more appealing than ever before. Thanks for your excellent mentoring!
Was wondering how long it would take you to come of with this?
I been a fan of yours from the beginning, and I’m never dissapointed when I get an opportunity to visit.
Sometimes, it’s a week or two depending on my shcedule, but oh me oh my love your eye candy!
Congratulations! And I know you’ll be a great success – your designs are beautiful!!
What a beautiful card and congratulations on your new line. I am sure that you will do great because all of your work is awesome.
You always have such beautiful cards. Congratulations on your foray into designing. You will do GREAT! My favorite size of card is A2. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
Congratulations, Becc!!! I am so happy you followed your heart!! Blessings to you on your new business!
Congratulations! Best wishes for a long and happy future with this new endeavor!
Congratulations! !!!I So happy for you!!!.Thanks for sharing.My go to card size is A2.
re the Ruffled Flower Tutorial: I didn’t understand how you adhered the “pearl” that you put on top of the button. Is it made with prongs on the bottom that “fit” into the holes of the button? I didn’t see you use a glue dot…so not sure how you adhered it.
Love your cards and tuts!
Congratualtions, Becca, you so deserve having your own line. I have hoped & prayed that you would turn your hand to stamp, die, embellishment & paper design. You are soooo talented & your generous heart is so willing to share that I am excited for your new endevors.
Thank you for many years of my morning enjoyment of your talent & creations.
I am so happy for you Becca. So good to look forward to a new chapter in your life. A lovely stamp with a most beautiful sentiment. I would be ecstatic to use it on cards to my special and most loved friends.
These stamps are so beautiful. Can’t wait to use them.
These stamps are just gorgeous! Congrats on the new adventure! Keep them coming!
Brilliant for you Becca. am so pleased for you. Look forward as always to keeping up with you from all these miles away.
Beautiful stamps that will lend themselves to so many projects.
I was out of town and just had a chance to check out your post today. I am so excited for you!! God always provides what we need is such amazing ways. I can’t wait to see what else you have designed!!
Congratulations, Bekka! You have been through so much and deserve the very best. You are a strong, talented person and such an inspiration to others. I enjoy your creativity and designs and am so glad you have the opportunity to design your own. I’m looking forward to what you have to offer now and in the future.
If we let go and let God, HE can do amazing things in our life. HE just needs to know HE has our complete trust. Well you did it again! I have followed your blog for a whie becuase I just love your cards and now you are designing stamp sets. I can’t think of a better person to do this. You are so talented and it seems like the natural progression in your caree. I have purchased many verses/sayings because you featured them in a card. The best of luck. I’ll keep watching for you sets.
congrats on the stamps they are gorgeous, i know the draw is over for this day but i wanted to say the sneak peek card is beautiful, the filligree, alphabet soup and just the right words stamps are all stunning and are all on my wish list Well done
Amazing news! So thrilled for you and loved the stamp sets! You really are a superstar!
I know I’m rather late as we have been away, but mostly I make A5 cards (European A5) which measure just under 15 x 21 cms – roughly 8.25″ x 5.75″. I love making larger cards as there’s more room to fill ;o)
Anne (UK) x
Becca you are truly “Amazing”! Your tutorials are the best! Above, you were mentioning that you toyed with the idea of creating a couple of tools – please, please go ahead and create them because the bow maker is sensational and I’m sure that if you have any more ideas for tools, they will be appreciated and purchased by all of us who eagerly await your blog posts and as well as the many other papercrafters out there.
Congratulations on the stamps!
Red Deer, Alberta
I realize that it is too late to enter in the drawing, but I just wanted to let you know that each time I visit your blog, I am encouraged in some way. Knowing that you are a Christian and not afraid to acknowledge Him is inspiring.
So proud of you! It has been a long time in coming. You have always been a great crafter and designer. Don’t know why it took so long for someone to figure that out. I knew the first time I saw your blog. I was in awe. Anyway, God’s timing is always right and now is your time. Enjoy!
I’m SO happy your path is moving in the direction that God intends. Thank you for sharing your journey – the highs and lows – with all of your blog friends.
I look forward to checking in with Amazing Paper Grace each weekend to see what you have created and shared with us. Your new designs look awesome – can’t wait to receive my preorder!
Congratulations on getting your own designs produced! That is so very exciting! I’m thrilled for you! and thankful that you didn’t have to give up blogging because you make some of the most gorgeous cards!
Becca, I am so happy that things have started to turn in your direction. I can’t always find the time to check out your blog as often as I would like to but I know that when I do and I read through your posts, a peaceful calm surrounds me. I am totally inspired by your strength to face whatever life throws at you and totally in awe of your artistic ability. I am so glad you will continue blogging and congrats and best wishes on your new path in life.
I’m not sure how I missed this!! Huge congrats! Your stamp designs are stunning! So happy for you! : )
Frederick Beuchner describes vocation or calling int his way, “it’s the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep needs.” Amazing Grace has shown you your gladness — and you are truly meeting a need. Your journey has been worthwhile…guided by a hand that is not always seen but felt. What a great outcome for you and for us!
