A Card, A Blog Anniversary and A Giveaway

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Heirloom Oval, Radiant Rectangles and Sentiment 4 - see more details at www.amazingpapergrace.com
What a sweet day, friends!  In years past this week has slipped by me before I realize that this week is my blogging anniversary.  Yep, that’s right – I’ve been at it for 7 full years and I’m going into my 8th year blogging.  One of my favorite sayings is “One often meets his destiny in the road he takes to avoid it.”  Reciting this in my mind so many times over the year, I’ve now programmed myself to add, “Why not?  Let’s see what happens.”  I have to admit in retrospect that so many of the “let’s see what happens” instances have been blessings in my life.   Wow, things have changed a lot around here since I made my very first post ——>https://www.amazingpapergrace.com/hey-whats-up-with-that-name/  I’ll admit, I was very green and very rough around the edges but I had just come up with the name and wanted people to know how it came about (hint: it was most definitely nothing to do with my cardmaking abilities . . . but I digress).   So, I have a little sumpin, sumpin up my sleeve!  See, I planned ahead when I was purchasing giveaway gifts for New Years so guess what the giveaway gift is….  Hang in to the end of my post and I’ll fill you in.  In the meantime, a quick rundown of my card.
Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Heirloom Oval, Radiant Rectangles and Sentiment 4 - see more details at www.amazingpapergrace.com
This is a quick and easy card where I’ve used a die cut twice to make a background then added an oval and sentiment.  The card measures 6-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ and will require an envelope made with my Envelope Punch Board – see, I have to create occasions to use that gem.  This card would look just as well at 6″ square.  To give you an idea, the next mat layer down measures 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ followed by a layer that measures 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  For the background I used Spellbinders Heirloom Oval cut twice, overlapped and offset to fill up the card.  The oval is from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and topped it with a sentiment from Spellbinders Sentiments Four.


Wheee, I have another Artisan X-plorer to give away!  

Beginning today through midnight CST on February 11, 2015 you can leave a comment to enter (18 years old or older) and you may leave one comment each day if you like.  In your comment, tell me what craft item you hoard the most :-)  I’ll pick a winner on February 12, 2015 using Random.org and will post the name of the winner in a blog post.  The winner has 48 hours to claim their winning by reaching out to me through the contact tab at the top of the blog.  The giveaway covers the Artisan X-plorer and shipping and this time around even includes my international readers.  I love this little machine – one sits within an arms reach on my crafting desk.  It’s ultra portable so I dumped mine into my suitcase when I went to my daughters house for Christmas.  When we were wrapping gifts and she had no tags to put on presents  – enter the Artisan X-plorer to save the day!

I’ve had time for lots of reflection (I’ll share a bit in the coming days) and more items up for grabs after 2/12/15 – peek in to see what I’m talking about as the month goes on.

Stamps: None
Craft Paper
: Coredinations, Stampin Up
Ink: None
Accessories:  Spellbinders Heirloom Oval, Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles, Spellbinders Sentiments Four, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Recollection Pearls, Vintage Flowers

Thank you so much for helping me celebrate!  Many of you have been here since the beginning and many have joined on – I’m thankful to you all!

    Wow , first comment Becca!
    I have only been following you a couple of years or so but am so glad I found your blog and all your lovely creations!
    This card is no exception, beautiful!!

    Gorgeous card and happy blog anniversary . Such a professional blog that is inspirational xReplyCancel

  • Maureen KFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:25 pm

    Hello Becca,
    Congratulations on your Anniversary, and none of use know where the path will lead us, or which diversion to take, we just put our faith in the Lord.
    Beautiful card today, which is par for the course.
    Oops, I nearly forgot. It has to be dies, paper or card that I hoard the most. I think paper and card top the list. xxReplyCancel

  • karenladdFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:39 pm

    Congrats on your blog anniversary Becca! What fun to look back at your first post and to see how it all started! I have been enjoying your beautiful cards and projects for a long time and am always inspired in more ways than one!ReplyCancel

  • Joan M.February 5, 2015 - 2:48 pm

    I always wondered at the name of your blog… it was obvious that it related to the hymn, but it’s nice to know (like life) there is more to it. Happy Anniversary!

    My hoarding items are double sided paper (I can’t find much locally… and what there is is…rather… “not gorgeous” would be the polite term. Now if you refer to hoarding as the “mostest” stuff, that would definitely be Spellbinders dies, which would like a chance to be run through the Artisan X-plorer… {Grin}ReplyCancel

  • gltinnolaFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:48 pm

    Love this card! Although I can’t say I love it more than the chance to win a fab prize! Thanks for all you do for your readers.ReplyCancel

  • ruthannFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:49 pm

    What a super give away! Thank you for the chance to win! LOVE your cards!ReplyCancel

  • Peggy EdensFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:49 pm

    Hmmm. What craft item do I hoard the most? That’s really easy, my Spellbinder dies. I have nowhere near all of them but easily over 200. This little machine would be an awesome addition to my craft room.

    And congratulations, Becca, on your ‘blog anniversary.’ Even after probably 5 or 6 years of following your blog you’re still the first one I look for when I turn my computer on. Let’s keep this relationship going!!!ReplyCancel

  • AprilFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:52 pm

    Gorgeous card! I love the complex look of your cards. I’m always amazed at how easy your explanation makes it for me to case. What do I hoard? Stamps…I now buy them for home and my school’s card making club.ReplyCancel

  • Charlene DahlbergFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:52 pm

    Becca, Your card is gorgeous !! wow, has it been really been sevens years? Your posts sure are packed with inspiration and not just in card making. One thing I hoard( and there are many) is Graphic 45 paper. I just love it all
    thanks for the chance to win


  • MelindaFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:56 pm

    LOVE the background on this card. But then again, I love all your cards. :)ReplyCancel

  • Jamie DinnsenFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:56 pm

    Congrats on your Blog Anniversary! Definitely the thing I hoard most is PAPER! I find it so hard to resist beautiful paper – even when I have so much – enough for 10 lifetimes! Well, maybe that is an exaggeration, but I often say I am ready for the paper apocalypse! I also say I am going to stop buying paper…then I laugh, and laugh, and laugh! ;-)ReplyCancel

  • Martha BaileyFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:56 pm

    Happy Anniversary! As others have stated, I look forward to your posts and inspiration. I can identify your bows any where I see them. I am totally addicted to my dies and hoard them while eyeing others to add to my stash. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win such a fab prize.ReplyCancel

  • Yo GlennFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:57 pm

    Happy anniversary! What a generous giveaway. Your creations are so beautiful, each and every one of them. I guess I hoard specialty papers (glittered, textured, beautiful double-sided designs, etc.). Sometimes, it seems that they are too beautiful to cut up and I guess I just want to keep them whole. Thanks again.ReplyCancel

  • E. NadlerFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:58 pm

    You always have gorgeous cards. I love reading the blog too. Happy blog anniversary .
    I can’t stop buying stamps. Too many out their. Love adding to my collection.ReplyCancel

  • Kristine VencelFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:59 pm

    Beautiful card, as always, Becca. Haven’t met one of your cards I didn’t love!
    Happy Anniversary to you! Wishing you many more!
    I love,love,love dies! I have several (gulp) hundred, I think. And now I have branched into some jewelry making so a few more dies are on the wish list. This little machine would sure help with my new venture.ReplyCancel

  • Claire HFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:01 pm

    This is one of my favorites for sure! I love the colors and everything about it. It’s hard to say only one thing I hoard but I love Spellbinders dies and I think they take cards up a notch so much.ReplyCancel

    Happy 7th Anniversary Becca, amazing that you have been giving us your wonderful ideas and tutorials. I love your dies and so good to see you expanding your selection of them. We can never get enough of them and your ideas , thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Judy InukaiFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:05 pm

    Happy Blogaversary Becca! You have brought joy and inspiration to so many people and your enthusiasm is certainly contagious. I love your cards and can’t wait to see what you will create next. Your “out of the box” use of dies and other items never ceases to amaze me. Thank you for all you do for the stamping world. One of the things I hoard is dies. I buy them (often after I’ve seen one of your marvelous creations) then often forget to use them. But I do enjoy them and always buy more.ReplyCancel

  • Christine HarropFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:07 pm

    So beautiful Becca! And congratulations on your 7th anniversary! I’m afraid I hoard paper and card. Sometimes it is just too beautiful to use – which sounds so stupid doesn’t it? Big hugs. Christine xxReplyCancel

  • PamFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:08 pm

    Happy Anniversary! Thanks for so many amazing cards all these yaers. I hoard Graphic 45 paper. I always buy one to use and one to save.ReplyCancel

  • MarilynYFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:08 pm

    Every day is beautiful ….even the bad bumps on the road….when you continue walking forward with God by your side. Congratulations on your blog anniversary. Most hoarded (weakness) item is Paper…..solids and patterned. I like to have a wide selection to choose from and can’t walk past paper without finding some beauty in it.ReplyCancel

  • F BondFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:09 pm

    Happy Anniversary! As always, just love the card. Sometimes I see the dies and I am not sure if I want them or not- till I see what you have done with it! I hoard dies- can’t get enough of them, along with flowers, ribbons and lace! That’s all I need for cards!ReplyCancel

  • Joan OlsonFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:10 pm

    Love this card. I am so glad I found this site. Congratulations on going into your 8th year.ReplyCancel

  • EffieFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:11 pm

    Pattern paper! I take it out, touch it and go soooo pretty lol-then I put it away!ReplyCancel

  • Bonnie PetersFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:11 pm

    It would be paper, solid or patterned, single sheets or pads of paper, I will never live long enough to use it all. Just can’t find that right card to use that “one” (LOL) special sheet of patterned paper on, you know what I mean. I’m beginning to think it’s a sickness!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.ReplyCancel

  • Lori RitchieFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:13 pm

    I’d have to say paper is my passion however, I would love to hoard dies but can’t afford to. Love your work as always.ReplyCancel

  • Joan OlsonFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:13 pm

    Forgot to tell that I hoard embellishments the most. Probably because I do not find a lot that I like.ReplyCancel

  • Eunice BrownFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:13 pm

    Happy Anniversary Becca. I have been following you almost as long. I hoard everything (lol) paper, dies, and stamps. I think it’s pretty even too. Thanks for sharing all that you do, I learn so much from you.ReplyCancel

    Happy Blogaversary! Beautiful card. Loved the background. I think I hoard dies…no, paper…no, dies…OK I think its paper. I don’t think I could possibly ever use it all and I esp. hoard my favorites: Bazzill Card Shoppe and anything Graphic 45ReplyCancel

  • Nancy LorenzFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:15 pm

    Happy, happy anniversary to you! I’ve followed you for a few of these years and loved every blog! I guess I’ll have to get in your archives and see the first years. I’ve loved every minute that I’ve seen in the last few! Thank you sweet Becca for your consistency and love and creativity that you’ve shared with us in the past! Hugs and kisses and many more years of friendship and creativity!ReplyCancel

  • PhyllisFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:16 pm

    Happy Blogaversary! Thanks for sharing your wonderful God-given talent with all of us! Here’s to many more! Hoard? Who? Me? Never! I merely stockpiled for many years saying that I was doing it so I had “enough” when I retired and didn’t have any money to spend on frivolous things. Well, 4 1/2 years into retirement – I’m still buying paper and if I used 20 sheets a day, I’d have to live to at least 150! Just found an at-risk youth charity that said they would love some scrapbooking paper and supplies, so I can share with them now and not feel so guilty! :-)ReplyCancel

    this is my first Anniversary I have shared with you, and God willing it won’t be the last. Keep up your amazing work. X Ros HodgkinsReplyCancel

  • Jean MarmoFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:21 pm

    Happy Anniversary! I must say that you make the most amazing cards! I just started getting some dies and imagine it will take me a while before I can make cards like yours!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy LorenzFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:21 pm

    Well, I guess I didn’t see the giveaway as I was so thinking about getting out that Happy Anniversary Phrase to you!!! LOL. Well, the craft item I tend to hoard the most is basically everything!!! But if I have an awesome silk ribbon in certain colors and size, I tend to hold on and use as little as I can get away with! Sad, but I try and not let it compromise the design!!!LOL. Love, silk ribbon! May Arts is the best and I wish they made more sizes and colors! Love, love, love!!!ReplyCancel

  • Kim BFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:21 pm

    My favorite thing to hoard is a toss up between stamps and paper, paper, paper!! Thank you for your inspiration Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Joanne O'BrienFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:22 pm

    I love your beautiful card! You are so talented and Happy Anniversary! I have a tendency to hoard the wonderful homemade cards sent to me. I just can’t get rid of them. They were made with LOVE! You don’t throw LOVE away.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy DonaldsonFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:23 pm

    Hi Becca,
    Happy Anniversary to you and Thank You for your Blog. Truly you have been an inspiration to me in so many ways. Always gracious, kind and down to earth and your crafting is artwork indeed. I mention your blog to all my fellow papercrafters so they can be inspired as I am.
    I hoard dies.
    Continue to walk to God’s light and feel his embrace.
    Thanks again,

    Hi Becca. Oh I so love this card, it’s stunning. Happy ‘Blog’ Anniversary, congrats on 7 years of sharing your beautiful creations and inspiring so many of us :-) I have to admit I am a ‘pretty paper’ hoarder – should really buy two of each then I won’t get upset when it’s gone, lol. Hugs xxxReplyCancel

  • Gloria CongerFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:30 pm

    I love all of your work. You are a cut above the rest of us.
    I am not sure what item I hoard the most. I just really do not like people to use my dies very much. I guess that would be it.ReplyCancel

  • Jackie KoreenFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:35 pm

    I probably hoard my cutting dies more than anything. Not that I don’t use them. I will get new ones, and cut and cut and cut, then put them aside for awhile, then boom, what can I put together for a WOW factor. My favorite is white on white on white…embossed folder, dies and dies and sentiment!ReplyCancel

  • caroleFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:35 pm

    I really love this card! The items I have a very difficult time giving away are always the first thing I paint, the first card design I make, the first mini album I made. I’m sure you understand. It’s difficult to let go of my “first born”. So, I am always making another one of something or the other. I have finally learned to start a gift or card several days earlier as I know I will have to make a second one!ReplyCancel

  • TheresaFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:36 pm

    Oh my gosh!! I do a lot of crafts so I have a lot of hordes. The main stash I am working on right now is all my yarn. Making mug warmers, scarves, dishcloths. Next up is a couple of shawls.ReplyCancel

    Happy Anniversary! I’m going on 8 years blogging too! :)

    The items I hoard the most are well… I don’t know…I have so many! LOL. I guess it would be flowers in particular roses, patterned papers and Spellbinders dies!! :)

    Thanks for another amazing giveaway!!


  • Lori ReinholzFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:39 pm

    Becca, your card is beautiful, as usual. What do I hoard most you say? Ugh! Hard to choose….can I say everything? LOL! The most…hmmm….I would say my dies, but that probably does not count, so I would have to say ribbon. I am in a monthly ribbon club and had bunches of it long before I joined the club. I have been receiving them for about 2 years now and have hardly used but a couple of them. Yup! That is it! But I could definitely go on about other hoards too! :) Hugs Lori ReplyCancel

  • Barb PFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:40 pm

    Even though I was not with you from the beginning, once I found you, I went back and looked at every post. It has been an amazing trip watching you grow. I hoard ribbon along with a lot of other things. My husband jokes when I go to a craft store and they have ribbon on sale. I say ‘RIBBOOOOON’ then he laughs and says go ahead.ReplyCancel

  • Darlene PFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:41 pm

    Congrats on your blogiversary!! The very first tutorial I ever downloaded when I first started scrapbooking, was a tutorial from you about using those little Cuttlebug embossing folders!!! I’ve followed you ever since. Your work always inspires, and often leaves me in awe! I’m not sure if I hoard paper, or dies more, but I definitely have a large collection of each!ReplyCancel

  • Maxine DFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:44 pm

    Becca I love that card – the colours are superb! And congratulations on your blogiversary.
    My hoarding confession – I think it is off cuts, just in case I can use them, and boxes to alter ‘one day’!

  • Diana NguyenFebruary 5, 2015 - 3:46 pm

    Congrats on your anniversary! Wow – what an incredible creative journey. You always inspire me with your colors, layers, and ribbon. I go through hoarding cycle: at first it was paper, then ribbon, now dies… this phase might last a while! :)ReplyCancel

    I hoard embellishments! I love them and think “I’ll use this one day” and yet have so much!! Lately I have tried to not buy more until I use my stash, but some things I just have to buy!ReplyCancel

  • madonna andersonFebruary 5, 2015 - 4:08 pm

    Beautiful card. I really like the new die cut sentiments that have been coming out. It kinda makes all the stamps I hoard, ha ha, obsolete. It is a real toss up between stamps and dies but those little dies do both. Thanks so much for the chance to win this Artisan Explorer and congratulations on the success of 7 full years of blogging. many blessings………………donnaReplyCancel

    Well done on the anniversary and heres to the next 7 years :)
    Wanted to say thank you for allowing those of us over this side of the pond the chance to win as well.
    My partner Mostyn would tell you I hoard craft items as a rule. I prefer to think of it as laying it down till I find just the right project to use it in. I am still using paper, stamps and pens that I bought over 15 years ago. Mind you Mostyn is a fine one to talk about hoarding as he still has his childhood toys.ReplyCancel

    I have been following your lovely blog for many years. You have inspired me every time I look at the blog. You also introduced me to Bloglovin. I get all your posts and many others of my favorite card ladies!
    What I hoard and don’t use are the fancy embellishments made of swirly shapes of pearls! You use them often but I hoard the few I have.ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca!

    Congratulations on completing 7 years of blogging and beginning your 8th year. I must say you are an inspiration to me which helps and motivates me to do better and more beautiful cards for my family. I have been hoarding Stamp Sets/Cardstock.ReplyCancel

  • Cheri JohnstonFebruary 5, 2015 - 4:24 pm

    Hmmmm, I had to think about this!!! I started card making when my granddaughter was born (same year as your blogging started, so we’ve been together 7 years hahaha!) I would say my Cuttlebug is the ONE thing I would be lost w/o. It was my 1st real purchase, and I truly cherish it! Thanx for all the great years Becca, you’re a blessing!ReplyCancel

  • Rene from OZ xoFebruary 5, 2015 - 4:31 pm

    Hi Becca, in your eighth year well done. I tend to hoard papers, I feel bad cutting into some of them which is silly, why did I buy them in the first place!! I always love your cards.

    Wow, such a great giveaway! I just have to say I love your cards. I use them as inspiration for most of my cards, but they never turn out as good. I think I hoard everything but when it comes down to it I must say the bling. I have four drawers full of rhinestones, pearls, studs, etc. love, love, love!ReplyCancel

    Happy Anniversary Becca! How fun it is to find oneself on the same good track as at the beginning. I love that. Your card is another example of using compatible and beautiful dies together coming up with such a beauty. For myself, I find it really hard to throw out unused die cuts. I keep just about every scrap of decent size cardstock as well. Just know I will find uses…often do but the folder is bulging with them. Thanks for the wonderful chance to win the Artisan X-plorer; I would relish it!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara WilsonFebruary 5, 2015 - 4:35 pm

    Congratulations on all of the years you have been blogging. I tend to hoard paper. If I really like it and know that I can’t get anymore it is hard to cut up.
    However my grandchildren seem to think that the paper in my craft room is there for their use.ReplyCancel

    Are you asking me or my husband? ..hoarding spellbinder dies, ribbon and lace, cardstock..in case they might run out next year..mostly the dies are my biggest hoard. love your card..want to practice making bows. I have down double and triple bows, but not two of different sizes on one bow.

    Oh dear this is like a game of truth or dare tee hee. I have to admit I buy card in all sorts of pretty colours and when I go to choose a sheet it really does depend on who I’m making the card for, as to whether I use plain white or dig into my precious stash. The person has to be pretty special for me to cut up a sheet – lol. Thanks for the chance of winning an artisan explorer xxReplyCancel

  • carol gleisbergFebruary 5, 2015 - 4:53 pm

  • Katlin JohnstonFebruary 5, 2015 - 4:53 pm

    Another beautiful card! I read everyone of your posts…always such an inspiration to create something beautiful of my own. The world can never have enough beauty…….or paper…….paper is what I hoard and have since I was a tiny child. You would think I would have enough by now but every sheet of paper has so many possibilities! So glad us international readers get a chance at this prize!ReplyCancel

    Congrats Becca…7 full years…good for YOU!!!
    I sooooooo enjoy heat embossing – the process and the look and my choice of ‘most hoarded item’ is my WELLER HEAT GUN! It is sooooo special and even tho’ it was expensive ($125), I would buy another in an instant if mine goes out!!!! It heats sooooo FAST, has two settings – a high and a low, and has always worked exceptionally well – no burning or having to wait! LOVE IT!
    Paper Hugs,

  • Sandy ArtmanFebruary 5, 2015 - 5:11 pm

    Happy 7th Anniversary, Becca!
    It feels like a personal blessing when a new post comes my way – definitely the highlight of my day. Your craft, no matter the material, is always exquisitely beautiful.

    I’m a paper addict! It appears I’m in very good company in looking at the other comments. I have high standards. Some of my projects reflect more of my good taste rather than craft ability – since beautiful paper often needs little embellishment. But, I must say, Spellbinders die cuts add the “WOW” factor. Since I don’t own a machine, your giveaway is in perfect alignment with my “Wish List”.

    Thanks so much for your amazing paper grace!ReplyCancel

  • JuneFebruary 5, 2015 - 5:12 pm

    My craft thing I hoard the most is a tie between dies and embellishments. I love all the dies and ribbons, buttons, bling, etc and hate when I use them up and then can’t find them again. Yet, when I find new ones I am happy again! LOLReplyCancel

    Happy 7th Blogaversary! What a super achievement. And how much you have shared with us over that time! Thanks so much, Becca.
    Okay – what don’t I hoard…. lol A friend said to me that what goes in her bin is of no use to anyone. I am the same and when it comes to crafty stash – well…!
    It may sound crazy, but I hoard die cutting machines. I don’t possess an Artisan…yet ;o) I have told myself on many occasions that I don’t need another die cutting machine, but myself is not listening.
    I may hoard them, but I also use them. Well most of them. A demonstrator once told me that it is best to cut each make of die on that manufacturer’s machine. What could I do but take her at her word. Seriously. What could I do..?!

    It might be easier to tell you what I don’t hoard! My biggies right now are ribbon and 6″ x 6″ paper pads. I also just HAD to buy a new embossing folder to add to the dozens I already own. And getting my 12 x 12 paper under control is still a work in progress and…..well, you get the idea. That doesn’t mean I would turn down something else to add to my stash! Thanks for the chance.ReplyCancel

  • Joni StonekingFebruary 5, 2015 - 9:34 pm

    Gorgeous card. My guilty hoarding pleasure, which you contribute to frequently, is dies. I love them, and can’t live without them. Hence of course, the need, ok, desire, for an Artisan X-plorer! Thanks for the chance at an awesome giveaway!ReplyCancel

  • Martha GunckelFebruary 5, 2015 - 9:35 pm

    WOW, such a gorgeous card today. I love looking at your style and it inspires me to do more on my cards. What do I hoard? DO I HOARD? Not MOI! I prefer to call it collecting. At first it was older retired STampin Up stamps off Ebay as well as newer ones. I went to one SU party and was hooked. I will save the rest of my collecting story for my next few comments. STAY TUNED.

    I wish I could find some of the beautiful Spellbinder dies you use. Would love to know of some good and reasonable sources. All I have locally is Michael’s and JoAnns.

    God bless you and congrats on your 7th year milestone. I wish for you many more. With kindest regards, MarthaReplyCancel

    Biiig congrats with your blogoversary Becca. I think, I´ve been with you almost from the beginning. I remember a friend asking me to check this new blog, and I´ve never looked back ever since, and still love every one of all the gorgeous creations, you´ve made since, and still do til this day. It is sooo beautiful as usual hun.
    What I hoard the most? That´s hard cause I have to admit, that there´s a few different things, that I just can´t resist he he, but the biggest obsession is probably beautiful paper, as I just can´t help it, when I see some he he, and it´s what hurt me most, when I visit your gorgeous country here next month, as it´s too heavy to bring home in the suitcase, and it´s sooo har to pass by all the amazing pads, I always see over there, when we visit, but it does get way too expensive before it´s home here, so I have to control myself he he he.
    Have a wonderful week and enjoy your anniversary sweet lady.ReplyCancel

  • Dorina DFebruary 6, 2015 - 1:26 am

    Congratulations on starting your 8th year in blogging. Love your blog and the beautiful work you share with us. As to what do I hoard, well………….paper came to mind but I probably have more stickers, especially alpha, than I really need or will ever use. I always find stickers on sale and think, Oh I could use that on a project and then I put them in the sticker file (organized by type) and forget to pull them out as I quite often end up using a die to make a sticker that fits. But that’s OK, I might need them one day!ReplyCancel

    Congrantulations!! For the past three or so years, it’s your blog that I visit the most regularly and religiously a few times a day without miss just to check out your new post or view your beautiful cards. The minute I saw this card, I immediately ordered the Heirloom Oval and Sentiment 4. Your artistic dexterity is so amazing. By the way, it’s the dies I hoard the most, and paper too…and also ribbons, but dies are truly my cup of tea.ReplyCancel

I must admit to finding you by mistake over a year a go now, but everyday i press on your blog that is in my favourites list to see if there is anything from you that day because i just have to see what you have been up to lately. Being greedy, i would have you blogging every day(sorry, greedy i know) but you just give so much more attention to details and make the most exquisite of projects.

    Happy Anniversary. Yet another lovely card, simple yet elegant.
    My hoard of ribbon is ahead of my hoard of papers, boxes and boxes of lovely ribbons but then there are the boxes, friends and family buy me boxes within boxes because I just love them. As crafters I am sure we all hoard absolutely everything to do with crafting even if it’s just to look at. In my case that would be the papers!!
    Keep up the good work, I have now found you on pinterest Yea!ReplyCancel

    I have to say I hoard PAPER….I pretty much use everything else and of course I use paper on all my projects but there are some that are so pretty that I just hate to cut into them…I hate to admit this but I always check the paper out first..

    My word, what a lot of people on the blog today. Well, had a rethink and have decided that dies are what I hoard – and use. And stamps are what I hoard but have favourites which I use, and some which I’ve had for years and never used – why did I buy them???!!! xxReplyCancel

Pretty papers, inks, paints, but mainly dies, cardstock and stamps take up loads of space so much so, I sometimes struggle to find room to create. I always am amazed at the beautiful cards and paper craft projects you create. Thanks for all the inspiration. Happy Blogiversary Becca.

    Happy Anniversary Becca!!
    I tried to figure out when I first started looking at your blog, guess around 2009. Anyways, it is a “go to” blog which I love dearly. You and I both have come a long ways since the beginning of card making. The lady who first got me into papercrafting (scrapbooking, originally) now laughs and says, “You were the one who didn’t want to do cards and now that is your primary paper- crafing technique.
    Last year we enclosed our front screened porch to make me a craft room. I didn’t realize until this week when I am reorganizing what a “PAPER HOARDER” I had become. I am going through it and made two gift baskets for charity and getting rid of some of my stash!!!!
    I look forward to each email I receive from you, knowing it is going to cost me money for the dies I don’t have to make your card of the day. LOL

    Your card is amazing as usual. I love the die cuts and the bow is splendid. I pinned. It was wonderful to read your first post. Very moving. What I hoard the most? I don’t have a huge hoard and if I counted items it would probably be paper – but I don’t exactly hoard it because I use it my classes at school for my students to make Mother’s and Father’s Day cards. What I would LIKE to hoard most would be dies. I would love to win the Artisan. Last year, I took my Big Kick to school and the kids loved using it. If I had the Artisan, I would have two die cutting machines for my students to use.ReplyCancel

    The thing I hoard most is my background paper. I have tons of it and rarely use it because I’m “saving it for a special card.” Well, that has to stop. My New Year’s resolution is to use some on every card (or almost every card) and don’t buy more until a good portion is used up. So far, so good… I’m doing it!ReplyCancel

    Day two – oh man, as far as hoarding goes it would have to be paper. You just have to be prepared with paper for any project, so a lot of it and a wide variety of sizes and colors is a must. Right?ReplyCancel

  • Laura PapercutsFebruary 6, 2015 - 1:45 pm

    This is a beautiful card Becca…but that’s nothing new :)
    I’m a hoarder of design paper. I love to be able to hoard more dies tho.

    Happy Anniversary!!! Another beautiful card, wow. You always think outside of the box and find amazing ways of using your dies. The outcome is another gorgeous card.

    You asked a question as to what we tend to hoard: easy, easy answer…paper, paper, and more paper. So much paper that on a recent move, movers inadvertently sent four medium sized boxes filled with paper. These were boxes filled with paper sets, the boxes were filled to the top. It took me a while to figure out that the papers were missing as I had about six boxes that came to me. So yes, My Name is Sammie and I am a Paper hoarder!ReplyCancel

    Congratulations on your blogging anniversary. I always look forward to seeing what you have in store for us. Your creations are so beautiful and very easy to identify. You truly are an inspiration to me. I think what I have a tendency to heard is pretty paper because I don’t want to use it.

    Second list…After my seeking retired Stampin Up on line for a few years, I became aware of other brands of stamps. I also went wild on the Spellbinders up to about Labels22, when I got my Cuttlebug. I emptied 2 PP accounts on Ebay and now hubby helps me keep a few boundaries there. I have tons of embossing folders, and am trying out the new Gelatos and a Gelli pad. I really love the creativeness of cards. My style is mainly CAS but I do appreciate beautiful cards with beautiful die cuts. I would love to try out your giveaway gift as my CB is getting long in the tooth.

    Hi Becca, I have been following you a couple of years now and you started my addiction to Spellbinders! (So Thank you ) The craft item I hoard the most is paper. I buy it because it is so beautiful but then often can’t bear to cut or give it away because I love looking at it so much. I guess I’ll have to start buying two sheets of each in future so I can use one and keep one! Thank you for taking the time to share with us and long may you continue. God bless you. XReplyCancel

    Happy Anniversary!!! I’ve been following your blog for many years and fell in love with it. One afternoon I decided to go to the very, very beginning and spent hours looking back at all of your beautiful creations. You know, none of us can assume or predict where we will be in the future, in our personal lives to our crafting adventures. I’ve found out that when we plan, God laughs:-) ! It’s all in his hands! I’m just happy that He led me to you through crafting! You have really inspired me!
    What do I hoard? Ask my hubby and he’ll say EVERYTHING (“How can one person use so many Cricuts at one time!?!?”)! But I have TONS of cardstock & paper but that’s the basis of paper crafting after all, right? My second hoard was started by you, my dear – thin dies! I love them! I recently took everything off of my Clip-it-Up & now it’s home to only thin dies and any matching stamps! As much as I love my Cricuts, there’s nothing like a card made with dies!
    Again, Happy Anniversary and thank you for inspiring us so much!

  • CynthiaFebruary 9, 2015 - 2:43 am

    Good morning Becca,
    My hoarding vice is card. I LOVE pretty card but then can’t bare to cut into it, but also just card in general as i hate the feeling that i wouldn’t have enough to finish my project. I also have an abundance of Hunkydory kits which are to me the very best go to for dare i say normal cards. I am dreading moving house as it will be come apparent to my hubby just exactly how much card i hard…..Oooops.

    Another set of wonderful cards. I like the different color ways. Shows how the same design can change just by changing the color. I have a couple go to designs that I use. Just change up the color and the sentiment and you have something quick and relatively easy. I do love dies. I have a bunch of them and it can sometimes get a bit overwhelming when trying to design from scratch but I wouldn’t give up a single one. Hope you have a wonderful crafty day.ReplyCancel

    I find that hoarding my “first” creations isn’t all that I hoard! As I look around my things I see that I also hoard beautiful papers. I really didn’t realize that I was hoarding them! When looking for papers for different projects, I would pull out these favorites and then tell myself that these papers didn’t fit with what I wanted to make.”I’ll use them on another project that needs to be for someone special.” Not.ReplyCancel

  • MaryannFebruary 9, 2015 - 9:11 am

  • JessicaFebruary 9, 2015 - 11:06 am

    Wow, 7 years! I’ve been blog hopping for about 5. I have let my own blog slide for quite awhile. I got sick, then my mom’s health was getting worse, she passed. We had to move, didn’t have computer access. Then my sweetheart was diagnosed with cancer. It’s been 2 years, in his recovery. So that took precedence over everything else. Congrats on your anniversary! Hugs, Jess
    P.S. paper paper, paper is what I collect. Almost forgot.ReplyCancel

    Yep, still a paper hoarder! haha! Love your mother’s day card. It’s so beautiful! Wish my mom was still here for me to give such a card to. :( However, I can see that this pretty card would work for many occasions with a change of the sentiment! :)ReplyCancel

  • D.AnnFebruary 9, 2015 - 11:40 am

    i hoard dies! Oh and stamps! Mmm and colouring mediums! I love my Spellbinder dies and the basics of my cards are always made with those and my Grand Calibur. I have just ordered the card creator dies so my layering will improve and of course I need both sets! I also just ordered the new Fox die because I have to have that one too! When I can’t sleep, I just lay there and design cards, and I’m soon asleep! Dies and designs, day and night! Your ideas are a great inspiration for me so please keep them coming!ReplyCancel

  • Dee BrownFebruary 9, 2015 - 12:10 pm

    I love all of your cards and boxes. I am now getting into the Spellbinders Dies. I must confess, I hoard 6 x 6 paper packs. I truly cannot help myself. I now feel much better sharing my secret. Hugz, DeeReplyCancel

  • Gretchen WilsonFebruary 9, 2015 - 12:19 pm

    First and for most I must say HAPPY 7th ANNIVERSARY, I really don’t know when I started following you, but I know it has been a long time. I have gained so much inspiration from you, where it is the verses that you use, the designs, the way you can get more from one die by using it in a different way with adding your own touch, the colors that you choose, the ribbon and flowers. You have a God given talent that you have been able to share with us when even things are rough on you, you can go the extra mile just so that we can try to make a card like Becca’s. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have given me in these years and I hope that you will have another 7 or more. Now this year will mark my 70th, can hardly believe it’s coming around, I still feel like I’m 50.

    Hugs and God Bless,


  • ShannonFebruary 9, 2015 - 12:55 pm

    I am a bonafide paper hoarder. My sister has threatened an invention several times. I get it from EVERYWHERE, Hobby Stores (Hobby lobby, Michaels, Joann’s), 99 cent stores, discount clothing stores (Marshall’s and TJ Maxx), I’ve even starting purchasing orgami paper from Japenese Supermarkets. (Hey you’d suprised at how versatile it is and the colors/designs are amazing.) You name it! Anyway, I love your cards and I’m always so inspired by your designs. Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • Jan CastleFebruary 9, 2015 - 1:23 pm

    Have to say my DIES are appreciated and used almost everyday!!!! This is fun to think about, but tough choices and hard to narrow it down…LOL!
    Paper Hugs,

  • AlexandraFebruary 9, 2015 - 1:26 pm

    I think my dies, stamps and embossing folders collection definitely would come under the heading of serious hoarding. I was tidying my craft room at the weekend, reorganising stuff to make room for another few recent purchases, when I realized I haven’t used quite a few of these things. I have a compulsion to add to my growing collection whenever I see another pretty item or sample of what it can help me achieve. You inspire me to want/need stuff I don’t have yet (or you could say hoard more) however, I must try to make more time for using them and enjoying them. Thanks for the inspiration you share so generously.xReplyCancel

  • BettyFebruary 9, 2015 - 1:27 pm

    your cards are the most beautiful I truly have ever seen. I am a huge card lover and give cards for all occasions. I wish my mother was still alive so I could have a reason to buy the georgous Mothers Day Card. I would be thrilled to win your blog giveaway. Good luck to all

  • karenladdFebruary 9, 2015 - 1:29 pm

    Yep, you could say I’m a paper hoarder as well. I will be pretty ancient by the time use up what I have. Congrats on your anniversary!ReplyCancel

  • Kay McBrideFebruary 9, 2015 - 1:44 pm

    ok Becca thanks for the chance to win, you know I would be happy with just a card or two from you. That would be an awesome gift too. this card is lovely, spellbinders has become one of my favorite sites to visit and order from. Thanks to you!! So, I guess my dies and paper are my two favorite hoarding vices, along with everything else. Except now I don’t have the space to hoard stuff so I have to be selective in my purchases. But my dies will keep growing, they don’t take up much space and they are reusable.!! CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 7TH ANNIVERSARY, I looked back and guess who was one of your first bloggers. I promise to keep up with you till I leave this place.
    lots of hugs

  • SueFebruary 9, 2015 - 2:07 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this fantastic giveaway, Becca! Besides paper, I also hoard embellishments. I would have to live to be 150 and continue cardmaking, to possibly use them all up! I better get going and make more cards!ReplyCancel

Thanks for this opportunity to win yet another Becca special prize! Haven’t won anything yet, but I can hope and dream…ReplyCancel

    Well, your blogaversary has got us all confessing lol.
    Do you think there is need of a Craftaholics Anonymous? I think a good number of us could have instant membership :o)
    So, apart from my earlier confessions – die cutting machines, dies and paper – I had never thought of myself as a ‘stamp collector’ until I discovered the stamping varieties ;o)

  • TeresaFebruary 9, 2015 - 5:46 pm

    Congratulations Becca on your blog anniversary! YES, I had to do it! I went back and read your first post. LOL It was so familiar to me in so many ways. I began my stamping journey 15 yrs. ago and I have been hooked ever since. I have to say my BIGGEST “collection” (hoard) is paper! But, I have recently got into using Distress inks and I am beginning to hoard those! (Quite honestly, I “think” I have a problem! Hehe!) Seriously though, although I don’t blog, I enjoy reading and following others. It is inspiring to know that we all struggle at times yet we are not alone and even through crafting we find such peace! Thanks for sharing a part of yourself in your blog!ReplyCancel

  • Charlotte ZweigoronFebruary 9, 2015 - 11:38 pm

    I tend to hord my own hand made flowers. I have made them with plastic packaging materials and alcohol inks, with tin cans and alcohol inks, with laces, with fabric strips: you name it & I have some stashed away. It has to be a very special card for me to pull out one of my special flowers.ReplyCancel

  • PatFebruary 10, 2015 - 12:24 am

    Hi Becca
    I mentioned, in an earlier post, that my addiction is patterned paper – well I have to confess I have also become addicted to dies. These are mainly spellbinders dies and I can’t get enough of them. That is why I look at your blog daily – to find new ways to use them

  • Dottie DavisFebruary 10, 2015 - 3:26 pm

    I love checking out your blog on a regular basis to see a possible new way of using one of the Spellbinder dies. I don’t always come up quickly with a combination of dies that work together but I know that I can peruse your site and maybe find one that will work for my occasion. So thanks for sharing your creations. The last thing I would say about “hoarding” paper crafting items would be that I “collect” what I think I “need.” Now comes the definition of what do I “need.” That’s always debatable but I do love the dies, paper, inks and stains and sprays. I know I have what I “need” in case theres a project they require. I love paper, touch it, stare at it, and put it away many times cause it is just too pretty to cut! Thanks for the chance to win the XPlorer!ReplyCancel

  • Leslie ScholesFebruary 10, 2015 - 4:10 pm

    I hoard dies – no two ways about it! You make get them out and play with them in the most wonderful ways – thank you! Next in the hoarding category is paper – love to look at it and touch it – I’m very tactile. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve said “OMGosh look what she did with the…., oh that’s a piece of…., hunh, whodda thunk – why Becca of course!” I love the way you very often play outside the box and you push me to do the same – again thank you!

    I hoard stickers, i have so many from my scrapbooking days, but don’t want to throw them out,even though i seldom do regular scrapbooking (i only do digital scrapping now). I only buy ones suitable for cardmaking now but extra ones are often given to me. Thanks for another chance to win .ReplyCancel

  • Anne (UK)February 11, 2015 - 4:29 am

    Hope you have had a week of fun to celebrate your blogaversary! Thanks again for all you post which inspires us all!
    So, back for another confession! I hoard card.
    The card I mean is rather different from the card available in the US. It is generally a heavier weight (250 – 325 gsm) and the most common size is A4, which is a metric size – 297mm (not sure why it’s such an odd dimension!) x 210mm. That’s roughly 11.7″ x 8.25″. Consequently, our card sizes are different and an A2 size for us measures 16.5″ x 23.4″ – so not too many cards made in an A2 (metric) size! The heavier weight and thickness of our card affects the way it cuts using low profile dies and how it embosses, using embossing folders or the emboss function of dies.
    So, I hoard card – different colours, different textures, different designs – and often cannot part with the ‘special’ sheets!

  • Norah McPheeFebruary 11, 2015 - 5:40 am

    Good morning Becca,
    My hoard of card is probably more than some wee shops without a shadow of a doubt as i panic if i run out of a colour so i have so many big boxes full it is ridiculous and i keep having a clean out just unfortuately that it mostly goes back in. What hubby says when we come to move will probably make the air a blue colour so i will leave it at that flower.
    I am so happy that you have had a wonderful blogging anniversary and that you still enjoy it as much as you did to start with which is the main thing. I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week,
    love and crafty hugs
