The Best of Both Blog Candy

Hi there blog friends!!  I’m buried in the studio working on a project.  I have to say that CHA prep often brings out the night stalker in me and I end up getting up in the middle of the night to work – that’s until it all ends in a crescendo, from exhaustion.  I’m about there :-)  Until I get my schedule back to normal (normal for me that is), I end up getting up and laying down at odd times – thus the really, really odd times with my posts.    While I’m working I thought I would go ahead and give away some of that fabulous Prima Printery and Prima Romantique paper – yep, this time I’ll take two winners – one who will receive Printery and one will receive Romantique.

Leave a comment letting me know about something crafty you have not tried, that you’d like to try or if you’ve tried it, maybe it’s something you want to do more of.  Maybe it’s a technique, maybe it’s a product you’d like to use or perhaps it’s something that has a steep learning curve.  Here, I’ll give you an idea – I’ve always wanted to learn stained glass and make glass beads.  I have it on my list to do a clear tape transfer technique.  See, that was easy!!  The comments open today and will close some time on Friday, January 27th – that gives you up to six times to share your crafty dreams :-)

Smooches, thanks for stopping by today!!

    I want to learn to bead. My mom does beautiful work and is very inspirational to me.ReplyCancel

  • LydiaJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:09 pm

    Ditto on the beads. I have the tools/supplies but haven’t gotten the nerve to try it on my own.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy LJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:11 pm

    I want to learn stained glass, too. I’ve always collected it, and I’d love to be able to make it. Thank you for the chance to win such pretty paper!ReplyCancel

  • Jessica B.January 21, 2012 - 4:13 pm

    Such pretty paper!!! I would love to make glass beads, too! I did get to do stained glass in college but missed out on the beads! :( I’d also like to do more with altered art. :)ReplyCancel

  • Karen BensonhaverJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:14 pm

    I want to try many things. I am interested in different cloth and paper flowers and I have not embossed with the Spellbinders because I need the rubber mat. I love trying new stuff!ReplyCancel

  • DarlaJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:18 pm

    Thanks for the chance at some lovely blog candy! I want to improve my skills at making all kinds of flowers for my cards. To be honest, I want to be as creative and do as beautiful work as you!ReplyCancel

  • Dottie DavisJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:18 pm

    The effects of alcohol inks especially as underlayment for transparency stamped images have always intrigued me. Having played around with it a little bit, I am still trying to figure out ways to use this media more in my card making. I do like to take a step out of the ordinary once in a while if only to challenge myself. Thank you for the chance to win some of that beautiful paper!ReplyCancel

  • Nan GJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:18 pm

    Wow some many chances! Thank you!
    I would like to learn wood burning (etching).ReplyCancel

  • RobbieJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:18 pm

    There are so many things I’d love to make “tech” wise but I guess the one thing I want more than anything else is to learn to not be afraid of making mistakes so I can be free to try many things. The “candy” looks great and would enhance everything I have. Thanks for sharing your great ideas, cards, projects and videos. I look forward to them every day.ReplyCancel

  • BeccaJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:18 pm

    I want to start sewing purses. I have seen so many cute designs but when it comes to actually taking scissors to fabric, I freak out! :) Back to paper crafting…ReplyCancel

  • Heather CJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:18 pm

    I would love to try crochet, I’ve recently taken up cross-stitching and find it takes up a lot of time(cuts into my scrapbooking/cardmaking time) but I do enjoy the chance to slow down and make something that’s beautiful in a different way. I think it would be nice to make something crocheted for my nephews and maybe one day for my own kids(when I have them)
    Thanks for making me think about it, mabe it will give me inspirtaion to do it now!!ReplyCancel

  • JOYCE ANDERSONJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:19 pm

  • Marie WardaJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:19 pm

    I guess I always wanted to learn to knit something more than a lopsided scarf. Just learning how to rubber stamp but I am most interested in scrap booking. Here is to a great new year and new learning. MarieReplyCancel

  • Brenda SmalleJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:19 pm

    I love the look of the cracked glass technique, but never remember to do it! Also – puddling embossing powder and stamping into it. There are just so many fabulous techniques out there, that I forget about some of the old standards!ReplyCancel

  • Linda MilroyJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:20 pm

    I would love to learn how to sew, take in and hem my own cloths. Also someday turn my drawings into Digi stamps. I love, the romantic papers you are giving away and the ones you use in your projects. Thanks so much for your inspiration and the chance to win. Blessing, LindaReplyCancel

  • Sharon OrlandoJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:21 pm

    Hi Becca! I would love to learn beading and to polish up my sewing skills (like sew on fabric – not just paper!) Thank you for the chance to win this lovely paper!ReplyCancel

  • LyndAJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:21 pm

    I would like to try machine embroidery but my machine is too old to get an attachment to drop the feed. To the ladies above who want to bead, just go for it. There are lots of free simple tutorials on the net often provided by companies who sell beads. You won’t be disappointed! It is a great hobby!ReplyCancel

  • GillianJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:22 pm

    I am inspired every time I see your works Becca. But I would love to learn more about the Brayer techniques, I love the way it can change a project/paper with the different colours. I would also love to try all the new Spellbinder range. Just need more time/money to try out all this wonderful stuff! God BlessReplyCancel

  • vilivineJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:22 pm

  • Pat HarveyJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:24 pm

    I would love to be less critical of my cards…Picking out colors, or making it look balanced. I also would love to try and paint some watercolor flowers on a card.
    You cards are awesome, and follow your color choices!
    Thanks so much for the give away…ReplyCancel

  • Lisa N - MNJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:24 pm

    This sounds so basic but I’d really like to learn to coordinate layering different beautiful papers with several fantastic dies that are out there. Simple – but not simple to me. Thank you for all your inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • AnjiJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:25 pm

    I know this sounds goofy but I have been intrigued with Shrinky Dink projects?!ReplyCancel

  • Jo WitneyJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:25 pm

    Hi Becca, I have always wanted to learn to do metal embossing. It is so very beautiful, especially the items done in pewter. So intricate & classicall. I will one day take this up & I intend to make it soon. Another thing I’d like to learn is paper cutting, I don’t mean scissorschnite, I’m talking about the absolutely glorius birds, & animals done soley with paper in whites and ecrus. When I do learn either of these talents, I’ll post examples to you. Love your work, and your generosity. May God continue to bless you. Now I hope you get some sleep soon. joReplyCancel

  • ColoradoJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:25 pm

    There are so many crafts and papercrafting techniques I want to try… hopefully 2012 will help me accomplish at least some of that. One new (to me) thing I’d like to try is quilling. I’ve seen some really pretty cards made using quilling and I think it would be a craft that I could do at least part of while watching TV. I feel bad when my hubby wants to watch TV and I’d rather be in my crafting area so I’d like to find things that I can do while still spending time with him.ReplyCancel

  • Joy HaddenJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:26 pm

    I would love to try watercoloring. Never tried it, too scared it would end up looking sloppy. One day….ReplyCancel

  • MarieJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:26 pm

    Don’t have a blog Becca maybe thats something I need to learn to do! Love your site and all the beautiful cards you make. Have a wonderful day and thanks for the chance to win these gorgeous papers! :O)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca! Thanks once again for offering blog candy. Your blog is always a delight – regardless of the time you post!

    As for your question – I would love to try glass etching.ReplyCancel

  • EvelynJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:28 pm

    Needlework techniques that could be incorporated into card/scrapbook projects, best way to match patterned papers together and how to really use that color wheel.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel BrooksJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:29 pm

    I’d love to learn to make jewelry – the small rectangles and other shapes with pretty pictures inside. Have “stuff” to try them, but haven’t taken the time to explore yet.

    LOVE your papers!ReplyCancel

  • ShirleyJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:29 pm

    I would love to learn how to crochet so I can make those pretty flowers that are sold to place on cards. I also would like to take some knitting classes to learn how to do more than knit!! Having arthritis can make these crafts a little harder but I’m sure there is are ways to make these crafts easier. I covet that paper ever time you bring it up!!! Thanks for offering it to all of us.

    I have seen molding paste used and would love to try it.

    Those papers look divine.

  • Leone GiffordJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:31 pm

    I’m hoping to learn to do pergamano…it is just another way to add beauty to cards.ReplyCancel

  • Carol RJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:32 pm

    I’d actually like to learn to make handmade papers. There are some beautiful sheets in my stash that I hate to part with. Maybe making my own would help me let go of what I have!ReplyCancel

  • Robin GasserJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:32 pm

    I also would love to learn how to make lampwork beads. I decided that I would probably never be very good at it so I buy from other artists!

  • Tanya PhillipsJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:34 pm

    Hi Becca! Something that I would like to try is making beaded necklaces and bracelets. The papers are beautiful, thank you for the chance! :)ReplyCancel

  • Pattie J.January 21, 2012 - 4:35 pm

    thanks Becca, for the opportunity to earn your gifts. I would like to learn how to do sewing on my cards when I don’t have a machine, I love the effect.ReplyCancel

  • Judy I, St. Louis MOJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:35 pm

    I want to try some of the detailed flowers that I’ve seen on the web. They are so gorgeous, but look so time consuming. I would also like to learn to tat. I took a brief course on needle tatting years ago, but it was a very basic class and I never could really get the hang of it. I love those dainty little tatted flowers.ReplyCancel

  • Charlene LeBelJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:36 pm

    I am always learning new things, even at my age. I love making cards for my family and friends and papers can change the way a card looks. I love jewelry and I would like to make glass beads. I love the look of colored glass. You have such a wide array of talents. Keep up the good works you do for all of us.

  • kathi17January 21, 2012 - 4:36 pm

    Wow, so many things I’d like to try! One thing I’d really like to do is make a quilt and actually finish it! I started one back in the 70s, but with moving all the time, the blocks I finished got lost somewhere. I’d love to find the time to make a new one. I’d also really love that beautiful paper, the Romantique one reminds me of quilting fabric!ReplyCancel

  • KarenJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:38 pm

    I have always wanted to create beautiful pieces of jewelry using the soldering tools I actually own, but sadly have not really mastered. It is definitely on my “to do” list this year, and I hope I get the chance to create something wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • kim nJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:38 pm

    I love the look of wrapped wired jewelry and have always wanted to try my hand at it. Maybe someday when I figure out how to add a few hours in to my day!ReplyCancel

  • Desiree YoungJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:38 pm

    I would love to actually finish a small album for my girls, but I struggle with the multiple pages and what to put on them. And I just got the Cricut Imagine…so, I suppose I should be spending time figuring out how to best use that! LOL.ReplyCancel

  • Nadine IllingworthJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:38 pm

    Hi Becca
    has to be parchment and vellum work. I did a little and kept ripping the paper. It looks so elegant. I would like to do the cutting away sections too. The work when finished is good enough to frame. To finish the work a bit of calligraphy to finish off with a beautiful sentiment. Never been able to write nicely. Think it would be better than a stamp.
    Then there is pottery ,I would like to do a an introduction course, just to see if I like it. Have looked at Manor House in Devon England but never got there.
    Well u did ask Becca. You would make a wonderful fairy god mother . Just wave your wand.ReplyCancel

  • Chris DominoJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:39 pm

  • Sandy B in ColoradoJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:39 pm

    I love to learn how to make new flowers with paper either with a die cut or without. I also like to learn new box folding techniques as well as card folding techniques. You are my daily dose of inspiration, Becca!! What you have done with the new Spellbinders is fabulous. Take care and get some rest. I know when the creative juice flows it does interfere with good sleeping because I dream of things I want to try.ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous papers both, thanks for the chance to win one of them Becca.

    I have tried many arts and crafts, but the one thing that I would like to do and haven’t got around to learning is Calligraphy. I know that it would set off many of my other crafts so well too. I must put that on my list for this year. Thanks for jogging my memory on this Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Rosie WaldtJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:43 pm

    I love all the neat things you make and mostly like the die cut look with vintage pieces such as lace, etc. I enjoy making cards and mostly like to see gift items that are different.ReplyCancel

  • Ellen - CardMonkeyJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:50 pm

    Hmmm…. of all the things I’ve tried and made, of all the crafty journeys … the thing that eludes me most is that I want to try to make … MORE TIME. Oh my, is there a recipe somewhere? I’ve tried making myself more efficient, I’ve tried making myself more organized, I’ve tried carving (out more time) … If you could point me in the direction of some tutorials to make some more TIME, I would be forever grateful. I’m already REALLY good at spending (money and TIME) and I do know it’s illegal to actually produce money (as in counterfeiting) … but I’d also like to have some tutorials on how to make money (as in EARN) money from doing the thing I like to do best, and that is papercraft. As far as other crafts, I’m a doer of many and a master of none … beading, stained glass, leatherworking, woodworking, mixed media, painting … but the thing I like most to do is papercraft. THANK YOU for asking … and if you can, please provide a BECCA tutorial on MAKING TIME!! :o) Love, the monkey.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Your blog help me in many ways, inspiring me to dream, imagine and create my cards. Must days your blog is a must for me. Thank you very
    much. I long for the time when I will create a finished card and feel as good about it as I do when I see your cards. This year I am stretching myself for ideas and trying techniques I never had the courage try. I would love to win blog candy because it is getting harder to purchase accessories that help the creative process. Thank you again for your sharing.ReplyCancel

  • JoAnn B.January 21, 2012 - 4:54 pm

    I have done a lot of different crafts and enjoy them all. I am doing scrapbooking and cardmaking now. I would like to try stamping with bleach. I have seen quite a few beautiful projects using this technique so I will have to give it a try.

    Gorgeous papers!!
    My desire is to learn from you. How/where do you get those gorgeous beaded hat pins the feature on so many of your cards. Do you buy or make them? I live in Australia and probably won’t qualify for you give away, but just wanted to let you know your blog is just inspirational. Thank you for your time and contribution to the carding world.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy BiggsJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:58 pm

    Hi Becca……
    I have burned the midnight oil many times in the past meeting deadlines too. And I know about the crazy hours of sleep or sleepless nights may I add… ha I know all your do is always gorgeous….
    My craft project I’d love to do still is painting on canvas. Do like a mixed media canvas. I see it on you tube and tell myself I can do it. I just haven’t STARTED one. It is on my to do list as well.
    Thanks for offering the beautiful papers for candy.
    hugs….. enjoy the weekend

  • F BondJanuary 21, 2012 - 4:58 pm

    I want to learn how to use copic markers. I always think those cards that have copic colored pictures on it are sooo pretty. I have been buying a marker here or there all last year and now I have about 100 and have been afraid to try them, but I want to!ReplyCancel

  • Gretchen WilsonJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:00 pm

    My biggest hope to try this year is polymer clay, I have the product, but not the space to do it in. I have got to get my basement together first. Then on to the project. Years ago I did bread dough ornaments and sold them, sad to say I don’t have any left for myself. Thanks for all you share with us.

    Hugs and God Bless,


  • facsmomJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:01 pm

    I would like to give myself permission to “play” with my papercrafting tools (paper, ink, and actual “tools”). My brain tells me to be careful to not use them up, but my tools sure aren’t doing any fun in their well organized locations. I don’t so much want to do calligraphy but to work with letters and lettering. Finally, my next creation is going to be white on white, using shape and texture to create interest instead of the emphasis on color. I love white on white quilting so this will be a fun undertaking.ReplyCancel

  • Vicky SchmidtJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:01 pm

    I have a friend in New Zealand that does beautiful pergamaro on her cards. I would love to learn how to do that. Thanks Becca for this lovely gift to win.

  • Debbie EricksonJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:02 pm

    What fun to enter on this my birthday! If I were to try a new technique, it would be using my dies for stenciling or shading colors on my cards. I have pretty much stayed with layers of paper, which I truly enjoy. Therefore, die-cutting and shading colors before lifting the die would be a next logical & fun step. The two paper groups shown today are absolutely beautiful and would definitely inspire me to try new things. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara JayJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:02 pm

    At my age I have tried nearly every craft out there so I really don’t have any crafts I want to try. Currently I am re-visiting some hobbies I did in the past . I did calligraphy at least 25 years ago. I dug out my nibs ( I had to replace them they got rusty) bought some ink and I am re- learning it . Yes I need to re-learn it as I have forgotten most that I knew. Like most things it is just a matter of practice to get it right. I am also back to making Temari which is another hobby I have not done in more than 10 years. For those who have never heard of Temari it is a Japanese craft of embroidery on balls I may also dig out my parchment craft tools and re-visit that too. My craft supply closet is like an archeological dig. I never know what treasures I will find in there LOLReplyCancel

  • Susi KJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:05 pm

    Wow, what a coincidence! Just today I told myself that I’d try the bleaching technique while cardmaking with the girls on Sunday. I love the affect and versatility of this technique, but never think to actually sit down to DO it – until now! A bunch of us get together each month, rotating the event between homes. We call ourselves the Seven Stampers Stamping LOL There’s NOTHING that revives the soul (and creativity) than some fun girl-time! Gorgeous prizes, Becca – so generous of you to give away more goodies.ReplyCancel

  • Danae FayardJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:06 pm

    I would like to learn how to crochet and how to read crochet patterns.



  • AndreneJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:07 pm

    I have just started to learn seed beading – the basic peyote stitch – and made a couple of bracelets. I want to learn how to do more techniques/stitches, making them into 3D items like flowers that I can add onto my projects. I have also never used shrinky-dink film. I would like to make some charms with this technique. However, my BIG bucket list want is to learn the art of glass blowing.ReplyCancel

  • Mary SchmidtJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:07 pm

    I am interested in beading. I would like to make individualized jewelry for myself, and maybe, make some to sell to help pay for the expenses. There are so many things I would like to try, and so little time, and money, of course.ReplyCancel

  • TinaJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:08 pm

    Becca, I share your fascination with shiny…I’ve done the stained glass thing (loved it, but I need more space to do it), and now I’d like to try fusing glass to make pendants and dichroic glass pendants and beads for my jewelry making obsession. My home is being overtaken by beads and paper crafts!!! Thank you for sharing all of your fun stuff with us all!ReplyCancel

  • CraftyleeJanuary 21, 2012 - 5:09 pm

    As a ceramic lover, as well as a paper crafter, I would love to “marry” techniques. I’d like to take the stamps and try my hand at stamping ceramic pieces with underglaze and painting in the image and then firing the piece.I want to be able to side-load and double/triple load a brush for depth, but have been too timid to try it yet.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Both papers are certainly lovely, please count me in. Hmm, as to what I would like to do more of silver smithing in jewelry making – I just love working with sterling silver, manipulating it from a raw sheet into something with shape and beautiful form that can be worn and appreciated everyday. I have taken 2 courses (fell in love with it) and made a few pieces of jewelry in class but space is an issue in my home studio…need to figure out a solution.
    Thanks for a chance at the blog candy…

    My friend sent me your link and I immediately signed up. I love getting your beautiful work on a daily basis. It is real inspiration to get busy. You have inspired me to buy more spellbinders and I have discovered it is quite easy to make an elegant card with them-as long as you have some great paper and embellishments. Your travel card inspired me to make one similar. It turned out great. Thanks for being here. I am learning to make more of my own embellishments using old watch faces and jewelry settings. I hope to branch out to making Victorian style jewelry.ReplyCancel

    I would like to learn how to do parchment craft better—(same as prgamano which is actually a brand name for tools.) I have tried for several years on my own but can only get so far as I need a teacher for
    actually seeing how to do it the right way. Its not well known in America but there are loads of teachers in the UK. If anyone knows of a teacher in Utah especially Salt Lake area I would sure like to know about them.
    I was interested to see there were 4 or 5 people postiing here that are
    interested in it. I would lke to ‘meet’ anyone that is.

    I too am like Bettie, getting older and feel like time is fleeting and I don’t have enough years left to learn and play with all the crafts that I want to.

    I’ve always dabbled in crafts of some sort. Two of my favs were stained glass and cake decorating until I found card crafting. Making cards is the best of both worlds – it combines the composition aspects from stained glass and then the floral and dimensional aspects of cake decorating. All with less mess! I love making cards and I think I’ve found my ultimate creative hobby and outlet. I would love to win your giveaway and stretch my creative juices!! Thanks so much for your inspiration.

  • carol parkerJanuary 21, 2012 - 7:43 pm

    Caligraphy…. if that counts as something crafty? Funny your card today should be on the theme of travel because whenever I go on holiday I write a travel journal. It gives me hours of fund and feeds by crafting because I get to make a new journal each time I go. BUT my handwriting is awful ( well I think so) and I’d love to be able to write in a beautiful flowing script in my journals and in all those lovely cards I get to make.

    As always I adore your blog and loved the new style of card today…. you never cease to amaze me and my daily visits to your blog are such a pleasure. Thank you for your shared inspiration. Carol. xxReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Wow, thank you for this double candy offer, both sets of paper look gorgeous and I would feel very priviledged to win either.
    I have been blessed with the knack for craft in various forms over the years: crochet, knitting, cardmaking & papercraft, jewellery making to name a few, but one thing I haven’t mastered is Scrapbooking. I would love to be able to learn the fundementals of good scrapping, especially good journalling and composition. My friends think it daft that my cards are so well composed yet I am frightened to attempt scrapbooking. So my next adventure has to be into that; when I can find the time that is.
    Hope life is being good to you.
    Regards LindaReplyCancel

I think I’d like to try Pergamono, but don’t want to have to buy all the tools, when there is still so much to explore with the things I do have!

I too, burn the midnite oil and craft all hrs of the day & nite. In the last 8-10 mos, I have come across the art of mini albums and hinged binding systems to work with chipboard, cardstock and beautiful papers. These have pockets, flaps and pages for photos and journaling. You can make then in 2×3’s for kids school photos, up to 12×12 for the beautiful paper stacks that many company’s make. I have made one of these albums, back in June and would love to be able to crank them out every 5 days or so.

I couldn’t tell how she did it from watching, but she did. she’s been gone for a long time now, and I so regret that I didn’t get her to teach me.

    Just thinking of CHA makes me go a lovely shade of green. Last year my wonderful DH gave me a trip to America and CHA as my birthday present (see why I am still married to him 33 years later?) I can not believe its 6 months later already.
    I have done stained glass – love it! Done porcelain dolls – love it but it has sadly become too expensive. I would love to paint, maybe one day when I am all growed up. LOLReplyCancel

    If my pain levels are high, I just can’t sleep, that is why I am now on the computer at 3 am!!
    Anyway, I would love to learn how to use my silhouette better and converting files, I have so many nice things I could cut if I would just set my mind to it and LEARN!!
    Thanks for sharing your many talents!

    Hi Becca,
    Thanks so much for the awesome chance to win some great blog candy! Well there are two things actually that I’ve wanted to learn… and oldie but goodie to me is tear bears. I would love to learn how to make them. I still think they are the cutest things ever! Also, I would love to learn how to do window cards… I’ve seen quite a few and love the look of them. =)ReplyCancel

  • Cynthia WilliamsonJanuary 22, 2012 - 3:40 am

    Hi Becca,
    The one thing I would love to learn is calligraphy. I have bought several books and somewhere I have a pen set with various nibs. I have always had it in the back of my mind that it is something I will do when I retire. That hour is fast approaching and my eyesight is no longer 20/20 nor are my fingers as nimble as when I formed this plan. Handwriting, much less beautiful handwriting is becoming scarce in the digital age.
    wistfully yours,

  • Sara TannerJanuary 22, 2012 - 3:55 am

    Hi Becca – I am in awe of everything you create and all the inspiration you give us – thank you. My intention this year is to get my head around scrapbooking – my eldest son will be 50 next year!! – and I would dearly love to produce something meaningful and more than just a load of photographs in an album. I’d also like to try my hand at altered art…..
    hopefully anyway…..

    Hi Becca,

    Just love all your cards and tuts. One of the things I’d like to try is calligraphy, as I always feel, after I’ve made a lovely card my handwriting when I send it really lets it down. Think I may make it one of my challenges for my 60th birthday year!

    Thanks for your generosity in sharing, I love seeing your creations every day.

    Good luck to the participants, the papers are gorgeous!

  • auntie em (emily)January 22, 2012 - 6:02 am

    There are so many interesting crafts and things to try and do. I am very lucky since my SIL and niece live next door and they are both artists who have successfully done everything from stained glass, rug hooking, felting, oils, watercolours, sewing, beading, crocheting…well, you get the idea. They are awesome and always willing to share their knowledge with me and many others. One thing they are both so good at and I would like to learn more about is creating with Fimo. It goes so much farther than just little bumpy animals and beads.
    Thanks for sharing! :)ReplyCancel

    One craft that I have some experience with is crochet, but not so much the fine thread kind. I have lots of the fine crochet thread from long long ago dreams I had and books with edging patterns. I would like to practice these skills with the hopes of making short pieces so that I could have lace pieces for cards etc. (the operative word is short here.. because time is what I really need- LOL) This is something that I could do on my lunch break because it can be such a portable craft.ReplyCancel

I haven’t used any of the Spellbinders (intimidating and expensive) but it is my goal this year to try it, especially after seeing all of the beautiful things that just came out of the recent ‘Abilities and Beyond’ contest.

    Hi Becca. I have tried lots of crafts really. LOL. I have ‘fiddly fingers’! LOL. As some others have mentioned I have never tried making lace – but that is rather a specialised art form that you don’t often come across these days isn’t it. Bet it requires a lot of patience too – not sure it would grow fast enough for me. LOL. I would though like to be able to construct the ‘flower loom’ you showed us. I live in the UK. I managed to acquire the rivets but can I find a small, circular box to put them onto !! Any other suggestions would be gratefully received.

  • GigiJanuary 22, 2012 - 8:41 am

    The one technique I have tried to master is one you use many times; it’s the effect of having a space between a die cut and a sentiment. Each time I try, the effect looks flat and certainly isn’t dimensional like yours. Although I seldom comment to win blog candy, I wanted to let you know that your work is inspirational and the tutorials are wonderful. It takes time to share your talent with your readers, so know that you’re appreciated.ReplyCancel

Now it sits in my entry way and people use it while they put on or take off boots and shoes. Sometimes, it gets piled with coats when we have lots of company. I tease that my entryway (which can be closed off) is my little chapel. LOL Thank you for the chance to win some of this beautiful paper. You are so kind!ReplyCancel

Even furnture refinishing. I’ve done basic things in that area. But I love the vintage look of painted flowers and crackle finishes, tole painting, that sort of stuff. I enjoy paper crafting because the results are more immediate. I’m not particularly good with delayed gratification! LOL..thanks for the chance to win these lovely papers, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Dottie DavisJanuary 22, 2012 - 5:48 pm

    When I see beautiful things made, there is something inside of me that says, “You can do that.” Well, lots of times when I try I find that some projects aren’t that easy to do like I thought they would be. Unseen failures are all a part of learning to produce fine products. So, one thing I would like to press through is not to be intimidated by how long it takes to get something right. Practice makes perfect my mama used to say!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I think learning glass blowing and making glass beads would be great fun. I’ve seen it done, but I really have no idea where to start. I don’t believe there are any classes in our area, but I’m gonna make sure. We have four collages here. Maybe I can find something in their arts department. I too, have times when I can’t sleep. So instead of tossing and turning, I get up and sew or embroidery or make a card or something quiet so I don’t wake anyone else. Thank you for the chance to win your beautiful papers! And thank you too for your generosity and kindness for all your beautiful projects and tutorials! And also for letting us share in your trials and your good times. You are such an inspiration to me! Still keeping you in my prayers! I hope you’re feeling better!!! Hugs and prayers, Patty W.ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca, I absolutely LOVE your black and red birthday card, it is STUNNING! I guess I’m going to have to put that damask Spellbinders die on my wish list. Something that I would really like to get more involved in is making quilts. The first one I made was a basic quilt and I think that my instructor sewed more than I did on it, the second one ended up being too short for my bed, so I need to find someone to help me lengthen the sides so that I can actually use it … it was three to four years ago that I started it, and its still not finished.ReplyCancel

  • Heather MillsJanuary 22, 2012 - 6:22 pm

    Becca, your cards are always sooo amazing! I’m a huge damask lover, so I’m glad you like this die set and will be using it a lot. I make jewelry and one of the things I really want to do is learn to solder. I have been saying for several years that I am going to do it, and I have attempted but not succeeded. I need to make it happen this year. Thanks for the chance for an awesome giveaway.ReplyCancel

Today I freecycled 3 boxes of Starbucks frappuccino bottles to first grade teachers that are going to make “stained-glass” vases for Mother’s Day. Now if anyone needs about 300 baby food jars!

    I started dabbling in some acrylic painting a couple of years back and was taking some classes and really enjoying them. But the gal teaching them really didn’t want to be doing that and she finally quit. But, if I had the opportunity, I’d definitely take more painting classes. It’s difficult, though since I can’t drive anymore… makes it really hard to take a class when you want. I do have a few painting tapes so guess I should at least go through those since I have tons of acrylic paint around here! LOL!!ReplyCancel

    This is funny but it so true. I would love to learn how to find embellishments and lace and paper and stamps that I see so often on other ladies projects. I wish there was a store out there somewhere that had everything all at our fingertips to order. It is so hard to find each one let alone several. Time is an element in card making for a woman who’s time to play in the art room is limited.ReplyCancel

    One thing that I’ve tried, but never mastered is tatting. My Grandma did lovely work. So fast you couldn’t hardly see her hands move, never even looking at her hands. Unfortunately she died before she could teach me. I’ve tried to learn from books, but my knots…knot!…they don’t slide. Maybe I should look on U-Tube (duh!).

    We have been married for 47yrs now and I really want to take all my wedding photos out of the album and SB them. When I started SB it was to do my family tree photos but after a few pages they seem to be put aside to do grand-children pages, but heres hoping I will get to do at least my wedding album in the near future. My bridesmaid dresses were 2 in aqua and 2 in pale yellow but it has always been difficult to find yellow papers and I think that is why the wedding album keeps getting left undone, so I think I will have to try doing it in black and white.

So there are many other mediums that would entice me but most of all I still love my papercrafting and floral crafts.ReplyCancel

    I’ve always wanted to try spinning yarn. However, given the size and age of my yarn stash, I really don’t need to add more time from beginning to end of a project! Still, looks like fun and the results are beautiful.

    I’ll stick with paper crafting for now, the papers you’re offering are gorgeous.

    Hi Becca: Watch out, CHA is a killer! I have decided I want to try my hand at art journaling which I’ve never done. I purchased the blank journal, removed the covers and it sits taunting me to just plunge in. And I will soon. It’s going to be fun I think. Hope you are well.


  • Sherian DixonJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:58 am

    There are so many Spellbinders and so little money and time. I love them. I have quite a few, but as you know it is never enough! Also love the coordinating stamps that Justrite Stampers makes for the Spellbinders. Some of the projects I’ve seen with both of these are absolutely gorgeous.

  • Anne McIntoshJanuary 23, 2012 - 11:36 am

    Becca. although you’re my inspiration when it comes to layering, I’m still having a problem trying to use more than 2 layers on my cards. They never seem to look right – too much, when yours look just perfect. I’d love a tutorial on layering Spellbinders. I know you’ve probably done one that I missed…if so, just let me know what date and I’ll go back and look for it. In the meantime, I’d love to be a winner!ReplyCancel

  • Debbie SparrowJanuary 23, 2012 - 11:53 am


    There are so many things I would like to do! Quilting was something I started many years ago but haven’t kept up with it…I have a ton of squares
    that I have put together but just haven’t finished them.. So maybe it’s just
    finishing the projects that I have already started.. I have a kiln sitting out in my garage.. this is the 17th time I have moved and my hubby is just tired of hooking up the electrical again.. Poor guy! As far as paper crafts, mini albums are my favorite.. but doing my own binders looks so challenging I haven’t ventured out making them… Praise God for You tube! I love all the projects you do and they inspire me.. Could I ask you where you get your inspiration from? Mine just seems dried up right now! Maybe it’s just a season…Thank you for the candy that your offering this week, would love to be a winner! Deb~ReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithJanuary 23, 2012 - 12:25 pm

    I just love to create. I have tried my hand at most crafts, (sewing, wood, scrapbooking, card making, knitting, crochet etc.), the list is long. Most of what I enjoy is home decor items. Since the twins arrived, and I do day care for them, & my crafting time is very limited, and my crafting is usually based around items requested by my family. I just finished an exhausting Birthday Party projects for the twins 2nd Birthday which is two weeks after Christmas. I made all the decor and party favors which if I had more lead time would have been much more fun. This past week I am doing more Party projects for a Tea Party/Baby Shower that my daughter asked me to create decorative items and do the invitations for. The theme is Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. Again my lead time is very short and I have been doing some all nighters. But I think I have nailed it. The one thing that I have really wanted to try my hand at is altered projects that include some melt art. It’s next on my things to try if I ever get some spare time.

  • Dottie DavisJanuary 23, 2012 - 12:55 pm

    Somehow I would love to learn how to incorporate other art media in with my card making, such as with Studio Paints by Ranger. Romantic that I am, I want to put a paintbrush in my hand, swirl it around in the paint and come up with a background that makes a then stamped image on top come to life. Something like using alcohol inks on transparencies then stamping. Gorgeous unpredictable results. I would like to use these techniques more frequently in my cards so anything new would be appreciated.ReplyCancel

  • Pat in the Great White North (finally somewhat white with this crazy winter)January 23, 2012 - 1:17 pm

    Hi Becca,
    Our little group meets at the church and have been asked to create bulletin covers using some of our stamps and papers and techniques and such. These will be copied with the scanner and printed on a colour printer. Since our first one will be for Easter, I am thinking of something with an Easter lily. Have you ever done a folded Easter Lily or some design with one?

  • MegJanuary 23, 2012 - 1:17 pm

  • RomayneJanuary 23, 2012 - 1:32 pm

    Hi Becca – wonderful candy. I’m relatively new to stamping so plenty of things I’m itching to try out or start anew, but one in particular is figuring out how to use distress inks. As yet, I can’t see the point of them, or why everyone raves about them, as to me, they seem to be just the same as any other ink, but perhaps I’ve just not researched them properly.

    I’m also keen to learn more about how to tie ribbons as you do :)

    One other thing that I would love to work on in my card making agenda is drawing with India Ink on a background of alcohol inks. Being attracted to contrasts I just love a little bit of freehand artwork mingled with stamping.

    Just a note: I think you are the MOST talanted card maker EVER… Your designs are sooooo beautiful and professional. I am not new to your site, but I got a new laptop and lost your link.

    My biggest thing I am working on of late, is learning all kinds of flower making, using punches, and actually all kinds of flowers, but mostly with punches and tools, I love prima, but also like the satisfaction of creating my own flowers!! It is just that it does get expensive, but after you have the punches it is not so bad, just in the begining!!

  • Dottie DavisJanuary 25, 2012 - 8:49 am

    Now that the question has been asked more ideas are coming to me that I haven’t thought of in a while. One is to learn how to use my huge set of Prisma Pencils better. I tried it for a while but soon realized it would take lots of practice to learn the art. I have even seen them used with Copic markers in the teeny tiny spots where the Copics can’t safely color. This has been fun, Becca.ReplyCancel

    Hi again Becca! I’m not one to make New Year’s Resolutions, but your question about what new crafting things we’d like to try has at least made me think about some things I either “need” to do or want to do when it comes to my cardmaking. I own a lot of Spellbinders dies and I have always just used them in the most basic of ways. Even though I have read your blog and others for ages and I look at all the layering of die cuts that you and some others do, I just never take the time to experiment with all my dies and try the layering thing. So, hopefully I will make myself set aside some time to get out my Spellbinders dies and just have some creative play time.ReplyCancel

  • DWDJanuary 25, 2012 - 12:21 pm

    One thing I have been thinking about trying,,,and it’s just been a though, it making beaded fringe for glass lamp shades. I bought a victorian floor lamp many yrs ago when my bedroom was mauve. The shade is pink with clear and pink beaded fringe. My room is no longer mauve, but I love the lamp. So I would like to find a shade in frosted glass and try my hand at clear and a neutral bead, so it will go with most any bedding I happen to use.ReplyCancel

It seems the dies have taken over my crafting and so have not been using my stamps as much!! They look at me from their place on the shelf, or in their binders and look so lonely and forlorn. I see tons of techniques on you tube and all over that I would like to try , but get so overwhelmed.
    I think what is inhibiting me most in ALL my areas, is my crowded work area, and having to hunt for all my stuff. I have to RE Vamp my work area, one of these days I will just start and not finish it until it is done!!
    Thanks for the chance at your wonderful blog candy.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    I would love to learn how to make homemade flowers out of fabric, paper, material and tulle. I have watched many tutorials on various techniques, I just need to set aside some time to create.
    I would also like to learn the art of quilling. I have seen some stunning cards using this art form. Must add it to my list.
    Have a great day!

    I would like to learn how to draw things I see so that they actually look like what I’m seeing. My mother could do this but didn’t pass that skill on to this daughter. :)ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the chance to win, something I need to try is using sketches, I got a book but never use themReplyCancel

  • Carol FroehlichJanuary 25, 2012 - 10:47 pm

    I haven’t done much coloring of stamped images. I want to get courageous and try more of that. I don’t own any copics or equivalent kind of markers that are on the market. I was thinking I would try re-inkers and see if I can make them look decent.

    Thanks for a great opportunity to win some beautiful papers.
    God Bless you Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara AKA GardenladyJanuary 25, 2012 - 11:13 pm

    I do not know anything about using all those special items when stamping such as misting, gel things that look like snow, flower soft. I am not even sure if that is what those items are called. It would be good having a tutorial that shows using those things.ReplyCancel

  • RebeccaJanuary 26, 2012 - 1:03 am

    I used to do bobbin lace making. It’s been ages and I’ve forgotten how to do it. Probably not a craft to take up again until my kids are much bigger but my supplies are lonely right now!ReplyCancel

  • ColoradoJanuary 26, 2012 - 2:02 pm

    I love interesting techniques on cards and I read tutorials for them a lot, but I never take the time to try them on my own cards most of the time. I think the only one I’ve actually used several times is the polished stone technique with alcohol inks. I love the basics like using die cuts, punches, dry embossing with folders and heat embossing, etc. which I do use all the time, but I want to learn and try some more “exciting” techniques in my cardmaking.ReplyCancel

  • DonnaJanuary 26, 2012 - 2:44 pm

    Last days of entries, lets see, what would i like to try, hmmm, I would like to expand on my different type of Folds on my cards, would like to do some more difficult ones, and to be better at making my bows, they NEVER look as great as yours, but I also don’t have the selection of Ribbon that you have either, your ribbons are always gorgeous, I wish I could afford that supply that you have, it is just gorgeous all your ribbons are, simply stunning, your taste is just wonderfully beautiufl, and so Rich and elegant looking, you are a GEM!!!

  • Vicky SchmidtJanuary 26, 2012 - 5:25 pm

    Every one of your card are wonderful. If I had to pick one I would have a hard time. I like to fold paper into snowflakes & would like to learn how to do origami.

    On my to do list this year is also to learn to use my copic markers as I have quite a few and to get organised as it takes me so long to get my stuff together as i dont have a room.
    Always love all your work it is absolutely gorgeous, I have to stop myself from getting all the things you use

  • KathyJanuary 26, 2012 - 7:40 pm

    I would love a chart explaining the uses and differences between all of the crafting mediums… ie markers, distress, staz on, archival, pigment, permanent inks, adhesives etc. So many things from which to choose..

  • LorettaJanuary 26, 2012 - 8:08 pm

    Hi Becca! I’m head over heels for all the beautiful Prima papers! I love the vintage look and feel that most of the Prima products have and I’ve purchased quite a few but so far I’ve been intimidated to try a scrapbook page or card because the ones I like seem to have layers and layer and more layers of embellishments and I don’t feel confident that I’d get the placement quite right so that’s my next goal. One thing I did venture into recently was spray misting my own seam binding to make pretty crinkle ribbon and I had so much fun with it!

    Thank you so much for sharing so much of your beautiful creations! They are very inspiring! And I really appreciate your instructions and tutorials!


  • Becky GreenJanuary 26, 2012 - 9:05 pm

    VALENTINES is just around the corner, & Valentines is one of my MOST FAVORITE “holidays!” I have been collecting things for some time now… I THINK I’m about ready to put this project together soon! But, I plan on making a DECORATED VALENTINES BOX!!!!!!! Maybe, I’ll fill it with little Valentines to use or savor… or use the box as a candy dish & fill it with chocolate goodies for our kids! Either way, I’m SURE my kiddies will be happy for a Valentines Surprise Box!!!!!!!!! :)ReplyCancel

  • Kim RudisillJanuary 26, 2012 - 9:18 pm

    Becca, what a stunning Celebrate card! When I see your creations I just want to spend the day to be creative. I think that I would like to revisit tatting with the idea to embellish a card. Thanks for the spur to think beyond our routine endeavors. Blessings.ReplyCancel

  • Donna RJanuary 26, 2012 - 9:21 pm

    I have tons of projects archived on my computer and in binders. I’d love to start to sort through and actually do some of them. Another idea I saw today was finish it up Friday. On Friday you work on projects that are unfinished until you finish it up. I have several projects that I started and never finished so I thought I might try that idea. Happy weekend!ReplyCancel

  • Dottie DavisJanuary 26, 2012 - 10:31 pm

    For the last “thing I would like to try” is painting with different media on my cards, not always using dies and that sort but a little more artsey with stamps and paint. After leaving painting dormant for so long I really wonder if there is any ability left. So many things to try and do, but little time on the priority list to do them. The Lord is charge of all of that; people are more important than my hobby. Thanks for the chance to win some of the cardstock.ReplyCancel

  • DWDJanuary 26, 2012 - 11:51 pm

    One thing I had gotten into doing was buying white flowers and using inks and mists to change to colors that went with my projects. With all the cool dies & punches on the market now, I would like to change over to making my own from the solid and printed papers of my projects. I just need to find the right dies/punches to cover all my flower needs.ReplyCancel

    I would also really love to learn how to make a lot more of all the fancy products myself, that we can see you people use all the time, as we can´t get many of them here, so it would be awesome, if we could do more ourself, like we can make our own glimmermist. So I hope, I´ll find time to search more around to find out how soon.ReplyCancel

    If I had another 24 hours each day i would take up quilting. I have finished one small quilting project (a Christmas tree skirt) but figure that there are not enough hours in the day to be a papercrafter AND a quilter, so papercrafting wins for now. I really appreciate the beauty of a quilt, my husband’s Aunty made all our three children a quilt each when they were babies, they are very beautiful.ReplyCancel
