Sweet friends, it’s been a whirlwind of a week! So yes, I’ve hinted around a little that I have a cool piece of news to share. It’s always hard to do the horn tooting thing but every little triumph is a cause to celebrate and an opportunity to be thankful. So, in answer to my question who’s on their way to the UK – My dies and stamps are on their way to the U.K. I wish it were me, but I’m just as blessed and excited. Let me explain….just like we have HSN in the US, across the pond is a wonderful show called Create and Craft TV. So, some of my dies (JustRite Custom Filigree Corner Dies and JustRite Custom Lacey Tier Dies) are being shown on the show on Sunday, September 15th (I’ll have times and hints on how to view, below)!! What that means is it’s easier for my international friends to pick these items up since a shipment has gone there. My sweet friend Sue Wilson is a presenter on the TV show and asked me to send over some unique samples for the show. In fact, Sue is also showing sneak peeks on her blog www.particraft.blogspot.com today and has top secret samples of her own she will be demonstrating on Sunday. When you tune in, you’ll be able to get more ideas for using both Filigree Corners and Lacey Tiers dies. On this show Sue is truly amazing to watch in action :-)
My card making idea for today is one of the samples that I sent over for the TV show, it uses Lacey Tiers and by adding back in all the gold cut outs you get a different two toned look. Gold is so hard to capture on camera but you can see it better in the close up. When I designed Lacey Tiers I had the thought that it would be used like stained glass with the stained glass part being the color in the knock outs. By die cutting two motifs and backing one with sticky masking tape, you can replace the same colored cut outs with the other color. I’ve done so much gold and white lately, but this one would look great and quite dressy in those colors. Other dies that work in the design include JustRite Custom Vintage Labels Four, Spellbinders Stately Circles, and Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics A embossed with Spellbinders Garden Lattice Embossing Folder; the sentiment is from Justrite Papercrafts called Looking for a Sign.
Here’s your Step By Step recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ – I have a tutorial on Spellbinders Hinged Card Bases that will show you how to make oversized card bases from solid or filigree panels, if you have any questions. Then stack foam tape, gold matting layer 5″ x 7″, die cut layer using 5×7 Matting Basics A embossed with Garden Lattice Embossing Folder, foam tape, die cut layer using frame from Lacey Tiers, foam tape, die cut layer using frame from Lacey Tiers, foam tape, die cut layer using Stately Circles, foam tape, die cut layer using round motif from Lacey Tiers. Sentiment mounted on lower part of card with Vintage Labels Four.

So many of you will find this hard to believe, but my Mom doesn’t ever come to my blog and always nods pleasantly when I try to explain what I do. I think I was so excited about this because when I tell her she might ‘get’ how big papercrafts are world wide and understand why we’re all so passionate about what we do, lol!! My things are just a blip on the show, but there’s lots of other wonderful JustRite projects that will be shown and to put it simply, creativity *will* be in the air.
The air times are:
UK Time = Sunday 12pm to 2pm and 5pm to 6pm
US Time = Sunday 7am to 9am (EST) and noon -1pm EST
All you need to do is jump on your computer then go to www.createandcraft.tv and click on “Watch Live TV”
So yes, we can watch from over here too! I love watching and always come away totally inspired!!
LOVE your Lacey Tiers and Filigree corners and use them a lot. Never thought of using the fallout bits that way though. What a clever idea.
I’m fully with you as regards Sue Wilson, she also is a very talented lady and I never miss a show she’s on. In fact I record them all and go back to them for inspiration.
I look at her blog every morning and then, straight after that, I visit yours. Both your styles are favourites of mine.
Thank you for sharing.
Oh Becca and there I thought you were coming over yourself….. But this is wonderful news never the less. You and Sue are the two card making queens with dies for sure, so I am sure Sue and your work together will make for one amazing show on C&C, those dies and stamps will be sold out before the show is over I’m sure. I look forward to seeing Sue in action, like you she is a wizard with these dies!!
Morning Becca, I am ‘over the moon’ that your dies will be on C&C, and your gorgeous samples will be shown on Sue’s shows, I can’t wait. I wish you were coming over, would love to watch you demo.
Your card today is so beautiful and pretty, I love it.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
Like my fellow Brits above, I got really excited when I thought you were coming to the UK. You tease!! Still, Sue Wilson combined with your dies is a pretty good substitute. Can’t wait for the show.x
Whoo Hoo! BIG congrats! I’m so happy for you! Your blog was the first one I found when I discovered papercrafting, and it has been a joy to see your successes in the papercrafting world. Thank you for sharing them with us! :)
WOOT WOOT Becca, that is the most amazing news, that I absolutely LOVE to hear. As I´m already a member of Create and Craft and also a huge fan of their Spellbinder shows with Sue, this is really the cream of the cake here, and believe me, I´ll be glued to my screen on sunday, and hopefully I´ll be able to finally get my hands on your stamps and dies before they´re sold out, which I´m sure will happen in a split second . I´m so glad, as we have some crazy customrules here, so it´s soo difficult to buy your stuff from the US, but from the UK which is in the EU, these rules don´t work then, so I can actually order there without all these extra expenses then, so I´m a very happy bunny now ha ha ha.
Thanks sooo much for letting us know, and have a wonderful week-end with lots of great fun. Hopefully we´ll be able to see YOU on the show here sometimes in the near future too then, who knows? ha ha
Hey Becca! Wow! Create and Craft in UK, its my most watched TV programme, so glad that we will be able to buy your designs here in UK.
Sue is amazing too, I won’t be surprised if you get a sell out!
Hi Becca, like everybody else has said we would much prefer that you came to the UK yourself !!!!! But Sue will definitely do you proud! The pair of you are a force to be reckoned in the papercrafting world. Cannot wait for Sunday. Love and hugs from Christine xx
Super!! I’ll be watching and looking forward to seeing your great designs, I’m also a follower of Sue’s blog too… :D
Sue a fab design of the card today :D
Oh, Becca! What great news! Now you are an international star! Congrats, sweet pea! You deserve all the success in the world!
Lucky people in the UK! IÄm so sad, that I can’t get the stuff in Germany!
I have just been on Sue’s blog which I do every morning, and then onto yours!
So nice to see the two blogs mention each other, and so nice that your work is so popular here!
Looking forward to Sunday here in the UK!
What Wonderful news Becca. It would have been great to have you over in person, but Sue will certainly do you proud and I,m looking forward to being able to purchase your beautiful dies. Great News. Hugs from Scotland. Rita xxxxx
Yay! Yay! Yay! Your dies and stamps and cards are always so beautiful and inspired. And as others have already commented, Sue Wilson does a fabulous job with dies – so a marriage made in heaven! But we would all love to see our own Becca here too. Hopefully one day… xx
Good morning Becca,
I am one of Sues’ faithful followers from Central Scotland and i just wanted you to know what exquisite dies you have sent to the UK. I too thought that if you embossed a piece of acetate and colouring it in while in the die, it would take on the look of the beautiful stain glass windows. Cutting out in another colour the die so that it took on the look of a window. What do you think?
Anyway i just wanted to say thank you for letting us see your beautiful dies and have the chance to purchase them.
Becca I,m so looking forward to seeing Sue. demonstrate with your designs and will be buying of course. I have followed your blog for a long time now and I must confess not always comment (I,m very bad I know)but I have to say I never miss a day looking at your creations and long to make mine as stunning as yours.
I know your designs will be a sell out, just wished you were there with them demoing alongside Sue, my two favorite crafter’s in the world. Good luck and God Bless x
So excited about your dies coming to the UK. Unfortunately I am moving house on the very day they are aired on tv, but will order in advance if that is possible. Thank you so much!!!
Follow your blog regularly along with Sue Wilson’s too. Am very excited about the new dies, will be watching Sue in action and treating myself to the dies if I can afford the bundle, it would be nice if you and Sue could be together on the programme though.
Thank you for all the inspiration and have a great day
Congratulations Becca, I have been following your blog for a long time and am happy to hear about your success. looking forward to watching Sue and seeing your examples. Who knows , maybe you will be able to follow your dies to the U.K. soon. I am sure you have many more wonderful ideas and designs in the offing.
Love and Good Luck
Absolutely love your cards! So intricate. Looking forward to seeing more from these dies on Sunday.
Hugs Sue x
Congratulations, Becca!!! Very exciting news!
Great news, congrats to you! And the card is very striking, the blue and gold look great together.
Hi, just popped across from Sue Wilson, Particraft. I love looking at different cards, especially ones which are so beautiful. So consider me one of your newest followers. Hugs, Jen xx
Thanks for all of it. I think I understand the concept. Is it really that easy to keep all of those cut-out pieces in line? i will be trying it. I am wondering if I can get that show .
Beautiful card once again. A big congratulations to you. It is much deserved.
I have not been to Sue’s blog but will have to check it out. So happy for your continuing success. Not surprised!!!!!
Congrates, so happy to hear your good news. I love love this card and I just saw some cameo embellishments but didn’t know what I would do with them but now I do. .I cannot wait till the store opens today so I can go buy them, thanks for the idea.
Hi Becca This is amazing news for your UK followers…. I read your blog and am inspired by your wonderful creativity on a daily basis…. Love watching Sue Wilson, and will be waiting eagerly to see your beautiful dies. Please keep up the inspiration… All best wishes, Karyle
How exciting for you. If you have never seen your projects shown on the tv before it is a very surreal experience. I had many samples shown on create and craft as part of a design team. It was really weird to see something I had made being explained and shown on the tv in the hands of presenters I had been watching for some time. Really weird. I hope your dies are a great success, I am sure they will be.
Congratulations! You’re an international star …You go girl!
Congratulations Becca! This is great news and something to shout about. You deserve all good things in life.
You have some BIG fans in the UK Becca! When I demo there they are always thrilled if I have a few of your samples to share! I love Create and Craft!!! Woo-hoo!
Oh my congratulation, congratulation, congratulation I am so happy for you they are going to have so much fun with your dies will be on the rode this week I am moving will we be able to see it at another time I do want to see what they and I know your card are amazing do with your and Justrites dies whom I love also. You have made my day with this wonderful news once again congratulation Becca.
As one of your Scottish fans, I am so happy that Sue will be showing your dies. Sue is an excellent demonstrator and will really do justice to your dies. Hope you can come over here yourself some day too. Roll on Sunday,
( I have spent hours recently going back through your old posts, thanks for giving us so much nowledge and inspiration)

Thank you also for sharing on the tv show in the uk, was wondering if there was a way to watch it, have seen that show advertised from one of my buys but never knew I could see it. Wish we had more shows like theirs in the US.
How about you Becca, ever think about a tv craft show??

I am so excited about this for you. I know the past few years have not been easy for you and I pray that this excitement adds to your peace. Thanks.
What great news. congratulations and I am sure the UK card makers are cheering.
Whoot, whoot! Way to go international :) I’m sure they will be a big hit.
Congratulations on adding a new market – I haven’t known about you for very long, but I’m certainly using your dies and stamps a lot lately! This cord is knockout gorgeous!
I’m so happy for you Becca! I’ve let my UK friends know to watch for your products!
We are going over in May of next year to visit out friends there, We meet every other year in Cancun and this past year we meet them in Las Vegas for there daughter’s wedding. We are so looking forward to it, there are a number of families that we see and they are so much fun, I can’t wait.
I can’t wait for Sunday, I regularly read your blog and will keep a special eye out for your dies. I was DEFINITELY not buying any more craft items this month, but I am going to have to make an exception for the Lacey Tier die, it is lovely. Sue Wilson is one of my favourite guests on Create & Craft so I’m really glad your products are going to be here!
Congrats on your dies and stamps going across the ocean! That is great news for you and I hope they do great. Maybe HSN or QVS will get wise and carry them soon too I hope!
Love this card!! I have some cameo cabachons from my beading stash. Now I can use them on my cards as well. Wish we had a crafting show like C&C in the US. I have heard alot of praise about the show.
Hi Becca,I am an avid watcher of create and craft and can’t wait for the show on Sunday.I was very lucky to be a part of your club so I already have the dies but looking forward to obtaining your stamps and seeing all the beautiful samples,can’t wait! I’m so pleased crafters over here in the Uk will get to see your amazing work along with the wonderful Sue Wilson!
Good luck with your venture Becca,would love to see you over here on our tv screens,fingers crossed!
Awww, I like watching Sue and reading her blog, but I wish it was going to be you on C & C, never mind, next time perhaps!!!
Congratulations Becca! That’s wonderful news. I will be able to see the later show. I am so pleased for you….and thrilled for us across the pond :0)
Gorgeous card as always, You certainly inspire us xxxxxxxx
Hugs Mau xx
I absolutely love your style and will be watching in the UK on Sunday. Hope you will soon pop up in person on C & C !!
I AM FROM UK CANT WAIT TO SEE THE SHOW ON SUNDAY. LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOUR WORK WITH SUE. YOU BOTH DO WONDERFUL CARDS, I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE A REAL TREAT IF THE CARD ABOVE IS ANYTHING TO GO BY. WONDERFUL JOB.
Good evening Becca from “across the pond”. By coincidence I’ve just been looking at the Create & Craft website and am pleased to say that I have already purchased one or two things ahead of Sunday’s show. Well a girl has to be prepared! How wonderful that not only are we to see the wonderful Sue Wilson in action once again, but that she will be demonstrating your beautiful designs. Congratulations – you must be so thrilled. Who knows, maybe we’ll get to see you in the UK some time. Enjoy the rest of your day.
Oh Becca – your stamps and dies look gorgeous. I’m thrilled at your news (and sad!!) because on Sunday it is ‘The Great North Run’ in the N E of England (where I live) and 2 of my family will be running ……. so we have to be there to cheer them on in this half marathon. I’m hoping C & C allow us to purchase ahead of the show. I love spellbinder dies and Sue Wilson is my favourite demonstrator on the shows. I will be setting the recorder.
I’m off now to check the C&C website….
ooh Fab Becca – I’ve got it marked in my calendar!
So happy for you, Becca! Wish we could watch the show from the US. Any chance that the entire show will be recorded for later viewing online?
Your projects are always so pretty. Thanks for sharing.
SO stinkin’ excited for you, Becca! SO well deserved, my friend!! xo
Hi Becca, this excellent news congrtulations ! how exciting for us, I love your cards they are so beautiful, xx
How exciting but I will be at work for both shows I will tape them but sure lots will be sold out…so sad :( But congratulations to you Becca xx
Oh Becca, how exciting!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! What a wonderful opportunity to have your art going international on TV! This is so fabulous! I can’t wait to tune in for the show. Might even have to miss a bit of football so I can see it :-D
Oh yes – great card today, too!
What exciting news, Congratulations!!! I can’t wait to watch, learn some stuff and see Beccas dies and such being used!! Enjoy the glory Becca you deserve it!
Hi Becca. What a gorgeous card. I have been follow your blog, after Sue Wilson mentioned you, for a while without leaving a comment, but I must tell you how much I love your cards. I am so looking forward to Sues shows tomorrow and can’t wait to see more of your great stamps etc. You two make a great combination. Take care.
I have been a huge fan of yours for ages and can’t wait to see Sue’s shows tomorrow.
Sue has a huge fan base over here so hopefully your dies and stamps will become regulars on Create & Craft and hopefully sold by other outlets in the UK.
This is so beautiful. I hope this might end up in one of your tutorials!
You amaze me with everything you do… what a gift… hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing the good news with us :)
Congrats! And, ever so deserved Becca!
Wow! It’s spectacular Becca.
Yay! Yay! Yay! I am over the moon happy for you :) They should be selling your bow maker too. It’s worth every penny.
Congratulations Becca! I’m thrilled for you. You certain deserve it. We’ve been spoiled with your masterpieces for years, and now the U.K. will also benefit. Win-win for everyone. Your card is a piece of art and could be framed. Well done!
Your cards are stunning, I am in the Uk and I am watching Sue’s show on Create & Craft. I am such a fan of your work Becca, so inspiring
It’s such a great pity that you can’t be video linked from there to here. There are so many people who have not got internet access because of either their age or financial problems who would be absolutely felled to see you on TV here in the UK.
I go to your blog every morning to see what you have been creating and it feels like Christmas morning when you have uploaded such a masterpiece of work. This is always my first port of call even before opening any important emails. You have been truly blessed with the wonderful gift that you have. Keep on constructing please……..
Many congratulations – so pleased for you. Create and Craft TV is fab, and I miss is very much since moving to the US, Sue is a fab presenter and demonstrator – your dies and inspiration will be a huge hit!
At last – the UK has woken up to your amazing work! I have followed your blog for the past year and am so pleased that your talent and inspiration are to be brought to us ‘over the pond’ – love and best wishes from the UK xx
I’m sorry to trouble you, but when I saw a baby card on pinterest made by you I went to your blog and could not find it. It was for a baby boy and was embossed with the argyle cuddlebug folder wth a pretty punch trim at the top with a large blue bow. I am so wondering what punch you used. It looks similar to a fleur de lis pattern, but I have not been able to find it. Is there a chance you might remember this card and what punch you used? I would love to get this punch. Any help you can give me would be so appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed all your cards. They are truly beautiful.
I am a Sue follower of appox 2 years and I have learnt lots from watching her fab demos on C&C and on her blog – It’s great we have your dies and stamps but now we want a little of you too! It would be great to see you both demo together – what a combo! Also could your bring your bow maker with you please? I can’t seem to find it in the UK anywhere – am I looking in the wrong places perhaps or is it not available over here? if not, why not? I am sure it would sell like hot cakes.
So sorry it couldn’t be you as well! Would love to see you on our TV screens! The dies are wonderful and love this sample you made. Perhaps we can persuade you to come in the future….
