Grand Finale – 30 Days of Giving and a Giveaway

Introducing New Spellbinders Dies by Becca Feeken - Cascading Grace Pocket coming September 15, 2015 - www.amazingpapergrace.comHey there!  Today is the Grand Finale of 30 Days of Giving.  This is going to be kind of a long post so grab some coffee and let’s chat.  If you’re here for the giveaway, dive right the bottom of the post ;-)

A little sneak peek.
First of all, I want you all to be the first to get a peek at a new die that I’ll have debuting on September 15th. Introducing Cascading Grace Pocket, one of eight new Spellbinders Dies designed by me.  Given the opportunity to spread my designing wings this new collection is classic, elegant and fun. Can all of that go together in the same description?   Well, yes it can!

So let me be a little honest with you.
When you purchase a die that I’ve designed, I actually make small percentage of the sale.  No, I’m not gonna be rich, but the monies go to offset the cost that it takes to run the server and services that keeps up and running as well as safe and sound.  When I began I never realized what comes with growing a large site.  It’s a blessing in many respects but the monthly out of pocket expense for me is a couple of hundred dollars.  I’m not comfortable asking for donations – I’d much rather earn my own way, but I am comfortable asking that if you have a crafting budget, if you can, please consider supporting with a purchase of any licensed product I design.  And one more thing – so often I get emails asking how you can help – for any blogger that gives you something of value to add to your tool arsenal or ongoing knowledge, please click on their site, visit once a day and subscribe by email.  The greatest gift you can give is by keeping them strong with the favor of your visit.  Ok, that was me being very brave. Let me remind you, here at amazingpapergrace you are never obligated to leave a comment, make a purchase or even visit but if I’ve given you anything that helps in your crafty journey, I’ll gladly accept any support that helps me continue to run this site in the manner that’s been placed upon my heart.  Like Forrest Gump says, and that’s all I have to say about that.

30 Days of Giving Lives On.
When I look at comments I typically see the same names over and over – those are the regulars that come by every day.  I love that so many who come every day were able to win and ultimately I’d like to see everyone win.  I’m going to keep the days of giving going by offering a card every Friday and a thoughtful question to stir your minds and bring to the surface saving the handwritten word, handmade and the kind giving traditions that are special about this community.  What made me decide this?  Read all the comments from Day 30 – I read through them tearily as did many of you.

Finally, the Grand Finale.
Grand Finale – 30 Days of Giving – yes, that’s today.  Listen, it wasn’t just me giving it was you giving too!   Over the last month of reading comments, laughing, crying and riveted by the stories, I knew today would come.

August 4, 2015 Giveaway on

So today I thought I’d cap off by giving away a little friend of mine.  I have one on my desk just like it!  It’s one of my favorite machines – I give away a couple these every year.  Welp, just like some of the dies used for cards that were made a year ago – products move on as new things replace them.  This little guy will soon become rare so I wanted to be sure to have a giveaway while plates and such can still be found.    Open to all, to win a brand ew Artisan Explorer simply leave a comment on this post any time between today and midnight (Central US Time) on August 3 to win.  In your comment let me know one of your favorite days of the 30 Days of Giving and why – was it the card, the other comments, what it stirred in you to write in your comment?  As always, you can leave one comment per day.  A winner will be posted to the Giveaway Page on August 4th.  Please check back and send me your address if it is you.  I’ll give the winner a week (7 full days) to claim their prize sending their address.  If not claimed, the prize will be offered at a later date.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  This Giving Event has been on my heart for a long time – I was just afraid to do it (hmmm – this sure ties back to card on Day 30).  I didn’t know if anyone would really care or if I would have the time to show up every day to tend to the little things.  Well it must have been meant to be because everything aligned perfectly for a lovely experience.   Thank you, it’s the readers here that make things work :-)

    I like them all, but especially like days 28 and 29. I love pink, so those especially caught my eye. I loved the verses on both of them also. You are such an inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • JulieJuly 31, 2015 - 8:20 am

    Becca, every day is a favorite. You design such beautiful cards. If I need to make a card, I come to your website or Pinterest pins. You are my favorite designer. Your style is the style I want to emulate. May you be blessed as you continue to inspire!ReplyCancel

  • Judy BennettJuly 31, 2015 - 8:20 am

    My favorite day was when you asked about handwriting. Penmanship was one of my favorite classes in school. Too bad they don’t teach it anymore. Even today, people say I have beautiful handwriting.
    Thank you Becca for 30 days of beautiful cards and lots of interesting subjects to comment on. Thank you for your generosity in giving all these cards. xxxReplyCancel

  • JeanJuly 31, 2015 - 8:21 am

    Becca, I have followed your blog for some time. You always inspire me to stretch my creative mind. I really liked the catd yesterday and the nugget was very thought provoking. Thanks for your 30 days of inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • Liz sJuly 31, 2015 - 8:24 am

    Any card blue really catches my eye although they are all so lovely. It has been fun seeing a card every day. Thanks for all the work you put into it.ReplyCancel

  • Janet GoshornJuly 31, 2015 - 8:26 am

    I love all the cards – you do such beautiful work but I particularly like the quote for day 21. I often remind myself to smile as I do believe that it will come back to you. Thanks for the chance to win a card every Friday and to win an Artisan
    X-plorer. I have been collecting cards from my favorite bloggers so I was so happy to see your comments today.ReplyCancel

  • Sandra LesleyJuly 31, 2015 - 8:27 am

    I have enjoyed being part of your giveaway. It is so hot here in Spain at the moment I am doing little crafting. The question that really stirred my heart was about what do I do everyday that is creative…..and I realised too many days go by with work or other distractions. Thank you for reminding me how important it is for me to allow myself time to create xxxxxReplyCancel

  • EllenJuly 31, 2015 - 8:29 am

    Hi Becca, i love all your cards…thanks for sharing. Day 20 is so beautiful…the way you glue the corners…wow!
    You are a big inspiration for me…thanks!
    Xx EllenReplyCancel

  • Pay GiuffreJuly 31, 2015 - 8:29 am

    My favorite day of the 30……the day I stumbled on to your blog from Pinterest for sure. I came in the game late,but was so taken back with your amazing style. Thank you! Thank you for sharing your cards and stories, you have gained a lifelong friend and yes I say friend because your cards ,your words make me feel like I can do this. I can make beautiful cards that inspire people too! And I have. One request can you PLEASE do a video on those gorgeous BOWS you make ? I am in love?ReplyCancel

  • Clare wJuly 31, 2015 - 8:31 am

    O Becca that’s an impossible question that I just can’t answer. Sorry! I love all your cards. Your new dies look interesting. Think they will be wanted by many of us I expect.ReplyCancel

  • LisaJuly 31, 2015 - 8:32 am

    Favorite thing about the 30 days of giving? I think the Introspection. It’s great to get caught up in a project, but to look back and reflect on your rational and then the happiness that the receiver gained. It made me smile. Thanks for putting the effort in Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Marion TurnerJuly 31, 2015 - 8:33 am

    Hi Becca
    This is very hard to pick one because ALL your cards are stunning
    But the one that sticks out is the one about I’m not afraid of the storm as I said made me laugh because my granddaughter had mentioned it earlier that day about her gang-gangs being frightened of storms.
    Love Marion xReplyCancel

  • ConniecrafterJuly 31, 2015 - 8:34 am

    Congrats on your new set of dies, can’t wait to see how you use them, glad to hear you get a percentage of the sales, so thankful that you share your artistic talent with us :)ReplyCancel

  • Lela PlattJuly 31, 2015 - 8:36 am

    I believe day 26 was my favorite on how the sentiment described a friend. It really hit home as I have a friend that would really wait for the answer. I have so enjoyed this 30 days of giving and your cards just blow me away. There are so many of them I would love to be able to make as you do. They are so beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • CathyJuly 31, 2015 - 8:36 am

    Good Morning, Becca,
    Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful endeavor! Being able to express yourself with people who have similar values is therapeutic – a type of encouragement that we are many who love the joys of creativity and the gift of giving! Truthfully the last card spoke to my heart. On my work desk I have a sister quote which says, “We cannot direct the WIND, but we CAN adjust our SAILS” GOD is in control of my life. I choose NOT to captain my own ship – it is my choice. I choose to take the position of ‘second mate’ :) I have turned the helm over to HIM, and I try to follow HIS orders. HOWEVER, I am responsible for my attitude – that’s a big portion of my sail adjustment!!! :)It’s a big job!!! Attitude is EVERYTHING~~ :) I’ve had my share of brokenness, disappointment, and sorrow but I choose not to focus there. My life is rich with blessings of family, extended family, and friends. I count you as a new friend, and am happy to have this opportunity to be a part of your world! May God richly bless you as you encourage, and inspire those He places in your path.ReplyCancel

  • Maria RodriguezJuly 31, 2015 - 8:36 am

    Hello Becca: I enjoyed this past 30 days of your amazing cards, although I couldn’t comment on each and every post, due to job and family obligations, I delighted in seeing your cards and each time I left a comment, I always hopped to be the winner. I didn’t win but that is ok. Now you will continue with giving away your amazing works of art plus this incredible machine so, to answer your question for today…..I loved each one of your cards, I couldn’t pick a favorite but, the question that really impacted me was yesterday’s. You asked “How are you learning to stir your ship?” I said that in my life, there have been some really rough and stormy days when my little ship has been tossed around mercilessly but, in the end, I’ve come out of this storms to enjoy clear and beautiful skies.
    Right now I’m navigating some rough seas, I’m taking care of my 91 year old mother who suffers from Dementia and it’s been a very difficult and at times, awful, 3 and a half years. My husband of almost 42 years and one of my daughters (who lives next door) help me a lot but most of the time, I’m dealing with this alone.
    Thank you again for the chance to win your generous prices and for sharing what you love with us.
    Many hugs.

  • Stephanie WJuly 31, 2015 - 8:37 am

    I think Day 18 was my favorite. Of course, the card was gorgeous but I could truthfully say that about all of your cards. What really struck me on that day was the quote on the card and the question about how we have brought friends and family into our love of crafting. This made me think back on all the good times I’ve had crafting with friends and sharing the knowledge I’ve picked up by surfing the internet and visiting blogs like yours. But what means even more to me is the time our daughter and I have spent together crafting. I also treasure the time it’s given me to spend with our daughter-in-law and get to know her better. She’s a wonderful addition to our family and I truly treasure her. So Day 18….yeah, that was a good one.ReplyCancel

  • Noelene ApapJuly 31, 2015 - 8:37 am

    Hi Becca,
    I am so grateful I discovered your blog just before you started the 30 days of giving. I got to see so many of your wonderful creations. Although you had posted these before every day for me was new and exciting:)
    I have to say they are all beautiful, so it’s hard to narrow down to just one, but I loved day 30 because of the design, colour & sentiment xReplyCancel

  • Lorrayne IngramJuly 31, 2015 - 8:38 am

    BECCA, I LOVE YOUR DESIGNS. They are always my first choice over any other designs. I am glad I can support you that way. I showed my mom your designs this last weekend. She does not make cards, but she is and has always been creative. I even show Mr. Car your designs. He resonated with the post from a few years ago about John’s service, it was a 4th of July post. My heart was overjoyed when you sought after and was able to find your lost dog. I don’t have time to follow too many designers. You are one of 4, and I have followed you are the one I check for new posts first. Have a good rest of the summer. Yours will continue longer than mine. :)ReplyCancel

  • Charlene DahlbergJuly 31, 2015 - 8:39 am


    It is so good for you to share some of the back story on your blogging and all it takes to keep it going. I look forward to seeing your blog and try to look in every day – just to see what magic you have created and the comments for all of us who love you. I was a subscriber to your kits so i am really looking forward to seeing your new dies.ReplyCancel

  • Rebecca JSJuly 31, 2015 - 8:44 am

    Day 7 card was my favorite because I always need to be reminded to trust my intuition!ReplyCancel

  • Sonia StephensonJuly 31, 2015 - 8:44 am

    Hi Becca. Oh wow, I have so loved your 30 days of giving – everyday has been special to me and I have loved your questions :-) Thank you so very much for sharing and giving away your beautiful creations. I am so honoured to have won a gorgeous Becca card and I will always treasure it. You truly are an inspiration and a wonderful, lovely lady. Am loving the look of your new dies and can’t wait to see your stunning creations in the months ahead. Big hugs xxxReplyCancel

  • Christine Harrop, Oxfordshire, UKJuly 31, 2015 - 8:44 am

    Well a sad day that the 30 days of giving has come to an end – but I can’t believe how generous you are in that you are going to continue it on a weekly basis. Becca, you simply are amazing! Day 13 meant the most to me because the text was “Praying For You” and that was the day I really need prayer. No coincidences in God’s sight! Mostly though I have so enjoyed reading the comments. I actually kept going back to read the ones that came in after I left my own. Some were funny, some straight forward but some were heart breaking – and that’s when I prayed for them! So thank you for all you have done and continue to do! Hugs Christine xxReplyCancel

  • ChristineJuly 31, 2015 - 8:45 am

    Hi Becca. You set us a tall order to choose a favourite from the past month’s selection. Words of wisdom, luscious bows – and that is before we go on to fabulous layering using superbly crafted die cuts – each and every one beautiful & meaningful in their own way.
    A particular favourite though is the card shown on day 21 with the message ‘ A smile that you send out returns to you’. Such a pretty use of the diagonal ribbon to highlight the die cuts and a stamp with a sentiment which surely echoes the pretty cards you share on this blog. Each card a ‘smile’ passed on to another.
    Wishing you well and success with the new range of dies coming out soon. They look wonderful and will be a success I am sure.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy BJuly 31, 2015 - 8:46 am

    Thank you for your wonderful blog. I visit your blog first thing every morning. I own all of your dies and several of your stamp sets. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent. I, too, have the Artisan X-plorer and love it. A great go to little machine. I hope the person that wins will enjoy it as much as I do.ReplyCancel

  • Nellie SchuurmanJuly 31, 2015 - 8:48 am

    Hello Becca, It’s sad to see the 30 day challenge end. My favorite day was day 28. Sure would love to win such a lovely prise. Hugs, Nellie.ReplyCancel

  • Ita O' Byrne O'KeeffeJuly 31, 2015 - 8:48 am

    It is very hard to pick one card ,they were all stunning.

  • Sherry RoseJuly 31, 2015 - 8:50 am

    Day 30 was my favorite card. It’s so feminine, delicate, and beautiful! Even the sunlight and roses in the background adds to the romantic feel of the card!ReplyCancel

  • SandieJuly 31, 2015 - 8:51 am

    Hi Becca, It is only recently that I found your wonderful site and it has inspired me to be more creative with my cardmaking. The cards in the 30 Days of Giving have all been so beautiful it is hard to pick one favourite, but I do like the classic elegance and simplicity of Day 19. I love the cream and gold and the satin bow, exquisite. I really want to thank you for sharing your knowledge and ideas so freely and I shall be looking out for the dies you have designed.

    Kind regards, Sandie Strachan, Western AustraliaReplyCancel

  • ItaJuly 31, 2015 - 8:54 am

    It was difficult to pick one card,all were stunning,I also find the comments helpful.

  • Melissa BoveJuly 31, 2015 - 8:57 am

    Wow Becca! What a fun, fabulous and sweet giveaway you had this month! Such a treat to have 1 of your gorgeous cards!!

    My favorite, of course, is the card I have coming my way!! :) But every card you make is a gift in itself!! You have such an amazing talent and gift! And you are super sweet too!!

    This giveaway today is beyond amazing!! If I won it, I would fall off my chair and then do a happy dance!! :)

    Thanks for the chance to win it!!


  • Karol HallJuly 31, 2015 - 8:58 am

    I loved seeing your beautiful cards and just what an amazing artist you are.
    I have followed you for many years and look forward to your post each day, love your cards and the tutorials . You are truly amazingReplyCancel

  • CarolJuly 31, 2015 - 8:59 am

    It would be almost impossible to pick my favorite out of all of the beautiful cards that you made. What I especially like about them is the verse that you choose.ReplyCancel

  • DebraK in FloridaJuly 31, 2015 - 9:02 am

    Hard to pick my fav, but I am drawn to blue so Day 20 gets my vote.
    Great to see you designing more dies, but I’m STILL waiting for a published book by you! You could do an annual year book, and just think about all the royalties you’d get! And your loyal followers would want to buy it annually so they would have the complete set. And eventually, we would have an entire collection of yearbooks. They would provide us with inspiration, motivation, and reference.
    Could you at least think about it, please? :)ReplyCancel

  • ScrappyKsueJuly 31, 2015 - 9:03 am

    Oh my goodness girl! There is no way I can pick a favorite. You design such beautiful cards. Every one of them is special and every time I see a new one, it just gives me chills. I wish my brain worked like yours in the way you design them. I have enjoyed all your posts and this series of giving. Thanks so much. Hugs, Karen SueReplyCancel

  • Lois KennedyJuly 31, 2015 - 9:07 am

    Becca – you never cease to amaze me. Each card is more lovely than the last. There isn’t one that I don’t like. God has truly blessed you with so much talent and you are such an inspiration to not only me, but many others as well. I am looking forward to your new dies and can’t wait to see what you will do with them. Because of you, my die collection has grown immensely! I look forward to checking in with you once a day. I seldom leave comments and don’t usually partake of giveaways (I never win!, but I follow you faithfully!ReplyCancel

  • KathyJuly 31, 2015 - 9:08 am

  • Victoria LunaJuly 31, 2015 - 9:09 am

    Hi Becca, By you are asking us to choose a card is like asking us to choose which of our children we like better! Are you kidding me?. I found your blog last year and that was it for me. I am hooked. I love your dies and your stamps. I have bought a lot of them ( a lot) and there are some that I am still trying to find but haven’t giving up. I can’t wait to get my hands on these ones. Thank you for all your inspiration, for sharing your talent, for your generosity during the 30 days of give aways. But most importantly, THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR FEELINGS WITH US!! PRICELESS!!!ReplyCancel

  • SylviaJuly 31, 2015 - 9:11 am

    Good Morning My Dear,
    It’s been wonderful to view your “amazing” card creations this month. For me they were all my favorites! Thank You so much for doing this. Good Luck to All!ReplyCancel

  • Bonnie TJuly 31, 2015 - 9:19 am

    Becca, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I admire you; your talent is beyond belief. Yours is the one email that I open every day and when I am wanting to make a beautiful card, I head to your site for ideas. It’s rather surprising, and kind of sad for me, to hear that you ever question yourself or wonder if anyone really cares about your work. I, for one, would pay to subscribe to your site, and I’m sorry to say, that it never really occurred to me how much your gift to all of us costs you in real dollars. I will happily buy your dies, and I hope you get much more than a small profit from your sales. As for my favorite card during the past 30 days, I am so drawn to Day 23. I love the color combination. Just don’t ask me to choose a least favorite. That would be impossible.ReplyCancel

  • Beth StiverJuly 31, 2015 - 9:25 am

    Have really enjoyed your cards, they are so classy! When will your dies become available at Spellbinders?ReplyCancel

  • Kristine VencelJuly 31, 2015 - 9:25 am

    In some respects for me, this is a very sad day. I have soooo enjoyed my daily visits to your blog this month & checking out your thought provoking “question of the day”. (I am a regular visitor anyway. I LOVE seeing your creations!) So, since this is the last day, I am sad. ?
    To ask me which day was my favorite is a difficult question. An easy answer would be to say the day I was lucky enough to win one of your cards. And that truly was a mind-blowing day for me!
    But in actuality, I would have to say that each & every day was special & a favorite for different reasons. Some days your cards just took my breath away & I would just stare at it for many minutes, studying it in detail. And some days were my favorite for the questions you asked. They made me think, wonder, remember, & chuckle, cry, laugh, smile when I read some of the other answers. What fun it has been!
    My answer to today’s question is the entire month has been my favorite day! And for this I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It truly has been a remarkable time. And I am so very greatful for being able to own one of your beautiful cards. I shall look at it every day. It sits on my shelf where I can easily see it from my desk.
    Congratulations on your new release! I will be happy to help support your work by purchasing another one of your gorgeous dies!ReplyCancel

  • Judy CoveyJuly 31, 2015 - 9:26 am

    I’m not sure which day it was Becca, but the question was something like: what handmade card or item stirred your soul, and I’m pretty sure that my answer was being given a hand crocheted bedspread that my grandmother made, handed down to me by one of my uncles. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful prize and it was so much fun to play along each day throughout the month of July answering all your questions and viewing “again” the beautiful cards that you had made in the past.ReplyCancel

  • Kathy Jo WoodJuly 31, 2015 - 9:27 am

    Becca- thank you for the 30 days of your inspiration. It has been an enjoyable month seeing your beautiful creations and reading your posts. You have helped promote the written word and the art of caring, compassion, hope, joy, love, and friendship. What a great month!
    My favorite card is the card you shared on Day 19- Quietfire’s Friendship isn’t a big thing. I chose that for many reasons. The two biggest reasons: I love the sentiment (one of my favorite QF stamps) and because it is a perfect example of what you do. You took dies and showed the versatility of the dies. I never would have thought of die cutting the center out of the Majestic Oval. Your creativity promotes creativity in your readers.
    I look forward to shopping at your online store and seeing your new releases!
    Thank you again for all that you do! Love and crafty hugs!ReplyCancel

  • IslaJuly 31, 2015 - 9:28 am

    Impossible to choose any one card as my favourite. They are all works of art! I especially love the sentiments you choose.ReplyCancel

  • LynneZJuly 31, 2015 - 9:29 am

    It is hard to choose a favorite from all of your cards, because they are all awesome. I really liked the sentiment on this card. I have so enjoyed reading your posts every day and answering the questions. I tried to read as many of the comments as possible as I found them so interesting. Thanks so much for your generosity!ReplyCancel

  • Debbie DunhamJuly 31, 2015 - 9:33 am

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win! Your cards have been amazing! The whole 30 days has stirred up a lot of memories for me! Thank you! I think my favorite card is Day 28. Love the sentiment and it is Pink! Congratulations on your new dies. I have most of yours from the past and they are still some of my favorites!ReplyCancel

  • Judy SmedleyJuly 31, 2015 - 9:37 am

    DAY 30 was probably my favorite but it is a very tough choice because they are all beautiful and heartfelt. I think 30 because of the beauty of the card and colors and the sentiment that has such an inspirational message. The perfect thinking of you card. Create on Becca, I look forward to starting my morning everyday with you and your inspirations. Thank you.ReplyCancel

  • MariaJuly 31, 2015 - 9:39 am

    Loved all of your cards! Have been an admirer for a very long time. I’ve truly enjoyed these 30 days. One of my many favorite cards is the 30th day, absolutely stunning! Thank you for sharing with us. I’ve never posted on your site & just recently joined but truly have admired your stunning creations & your touching comments. Continue your Amazing Work!ReplyCancel

  • Claire HorvathJuly 31, 2015 - 9:40 am

    So happy you will continue the card give-away every Friday as I visited your site every day to see these beautiful cards. Haven’t won one yet but there’s hope. Can’t wait to see your new die creations coming out September 15th. I have a number of your dies already and love them.ReplyCancel

  • Juanita BraunJuly 31, 2015 - 9:45 am

    It would be impossible for me to pick my favorite card. Each and everyday you posted the most beautiful cards and showed me all the different ways to use my Spellbinders. A few years ago I came across your site by accident and I have been a follower ever since and will continue to do so.ReplyCancel

  • MyraJuly 31, 2015 - 9:49 am

    I’m just so sorry I didn’t take the time early on to pay more attention to what was going on here. This was truly a vey special 30 days. I’ve gone back and read a lot of the comments. I can’t pick a favorite. They are all exceptional. I think you should consider making this a yearly event! You are truly talented, and I’m very glad you are being rewarded financially for your talent. MyraReplyCancel

  • Marie FishelbergJuly 31, 2015 - 9:51 am

    It’s been an amazing month looking at your wonderful creations. I looked forward to each day’s email from you…. Thank you it was a pleasure to visit your site! My favorite all month long was Day 1. It is so elegant, simple and classic in one. Starting from the color tones, to the beautiful background with the perfect placement of pearls and to the balance features of the bow and flower/leaves. I fell in love with this card. Thank you again Becca!!ReplyCancel

  • Colleen CavanaughJuly 31, 2015 - 9:54 am

    All of your cards are just breathtaking. I don’t have time to visit a lot of blogs, but yours is one I read faithfully. You are so inspiring and talented. Words do not do justice to the beauty of your creations. I purchased several of your new Spellbinders dies and they are beautiful!! If I had to pick a favorite of the 30 Days of Giving I would have to say Day 30 because pink is my favorite color and I just love the delicate elegance of this card. Thanks so much for all the inspiration you provide!ReplyCancel

    I simply could not name a favorite day out of 30! There were so many days that I loved so much, wait, come to think of it, there was a day set apart from the rest!!! It was day 30, and it was because of the quote by Louisa May Alcott. The quote on learning to sail your own ship, was one I will remember. I wrote it down and will use it! It was very inspiring to me!

    Thank you for these 30 days, and how exciting it will continue every Friday! You have a very inspiring blog!ReplyCancel

  • Sally J.July 31, 2015 - 9:56 am

    Day 26 card was one of my favorites. It looks so lacey and is done in one of my favorite colors of blue. It has been fun looking back at all your beautiful cards!ReplyCancel

  • JudyJuly 31, 2015 - 9:57 am

    Dear Becca. I can’t say I have one favorite day out of the thirty. I enjoyed reading the comments every day, looking into the lives of so many people who shared the same passion. It was so much fun to study the construction of each daily card and the sentiments you picked. Again thank you for the past “Thirty Days”!ReplyCancel

  • Susan BugalskiJuly 31, 2015 - 9:57 am

    With you and your blog it’s always both – the comments and the cards. You are an inspiration. Your heart, courage and creativity. Look forward to seeing new cards. All I can say is thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Mary HolshouserJuly 31, 2015 - 10:04 am

    I came to this late – and really hated that I’d missed so many beautiful cards. Day 26 was a beautiful card. The blue was muted and the whole card is elegant. The sentiment is so appropriate – oftentimes we’re talking to somebody and you can tell they are zoned out.
    I’ve been crafty all of my life but it seems to have passed my daughter. She does make greeting cards but has no interest in trying any of the other crafts that I’ve done through the years.
    The granddaughter seems to be more crafty but she’s still a work in progress (even though she’s almost 30).

  • TammieJuly 31, 2015 - 10:05 am

    Buenos Dias Becca,

    Thanks for a great month of inspiration and all the time you put into making it a daily gift of creativity, reflection, and fun.

    I particularly enjoyed the card on Day 15 and the how-to photos and instructions on Day 14. The “learning to sail” prompt was also memorable.

    May you have continued success. I am an a collector of Amazing Paper Grace products and will continue to support your efforts.

    Hugs, TammieReplyCancel

  • Debra MorrisJuly 31, 2015 - 10:11 am


    So happy your going to continue posting your beautiful cards on Fridays! I have, like so many others, enjoyed seeing your beautiful cards, the comments, and sharing a peek into so many of the lives of fellow card crafters. Picking a favorite is so very difficult as they are all so beautiful in their own way. The bows & color combinations on Days 5 & 27, the design layout on Day 15, and the saying on Day 16 are definately a few of my favorites! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity, and more importantly a part of your life, with us. I’m a Becca Feeken fan for life! p.s. Waiting impatiently for Sept. 15th and the new dies :)ReplyCancel

  • DalyceJuly 31, 2015 - 10:12 am

    This has been a wonderful month for me. Every day I look forward to seeing your next card. Of course we would all like to have won one, but for me, I won every day with the beauty and ideas you have given me. I am so excited to make many of these cards.
    Thank you so very much Becca.ReplyCancel

  • RosieJuly 31, 2015 - 10:14 am

    Becca, I’m not sure which Day card is my favorite because they are all my favorites. Day 30 I distinctly remember because of all the lacey looks/cut outs and especially the text. Thank you for doing the 30 days of cards and am anxious to see your own die cuts in the future. RosieReplyCancel

  • Debbie BauderJuly 31, 2015 - 10:16 am

    My favorite is from day 19. I love the card & sentiment. Friendship means so much to me because I’m single & never had children (not for a lack of trying). Most of my family has passed away so friendship means the world to me.ReplyCancel

  • Doreen RitchieJuly 31, 2015 - 10:23 am

    Hi Becca. Today’s comment ‘task’ is the most difficult one of the whole 30 days! Each and every one of your cards cannot be faulted in any way, shape or form – they are all deserved of being a favourite! You are one amazing person and the title of your website is very apt. In my opinion, your new website is by far the best craft website I have ever come across. The last 30 days has been a delight and, on behalf of the whole craft world (if I may be so presumptuous!) I would like to say a huge thank you to you for bringing us some amazingly designed dies, the latest being no exception. I hope Spellbinders appreciate what a great treasure and asset they have in you. Thank you too for your generosity in these giveaways. May you continue to go from strength to strength. I look forward to each and every one of your blogs. Very best wishes

    Hi Becca, Thank you for the 30 days of inspiration I enjoyed every day of it.
    All of your cards were amazing,and your talent is beyond belief,and has inspired me.I do like the classic elegance of your cards. Difficult to say which was my favourite, but day 30 really touched me.
    Thank you for your generosity and the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful endeavour. I am so honoured to have won a Becca card and will treasure it.

    I really enjoyed every day of the 30 Days of Giving. Reading all of the comments was truly inspiring. You create the most beautiful cards I have ever seen. You are a very gifted lady. My favorite day of the 30 Days of Giving was Day 30. I loved the card so much. The sentiment really spoke to me. The comments were very uplifting. Thanks so much, Becca! You are a treasure.ReplyCancel

  • PeggyJuly 31, 2015 - 10:49 am

    I’ve enjoyed so much your offerings over the past 31 days, Becca. And I’m thrilled to be able to use some of then as samples for card classes I will be having soon. My favorite? Actually, it’s yesterday’s card. “I am no afraid of storms.” Love it both for the beautify of it, and definitely for the verse. Don’t wait too long before you start posting; but in the meantime you need a (short) break. ;)ReplyCancel

  • Dee BrownJuly 31, 2015 - 10:53 am

    Hi Becca, I love all of your cards. I can’t say I have one favorite. Lately, I go to your page just to see what you created. I am a single mom of six, with two grandsons. I have been going through testing for Cervical Cancer and your cards give me spirit & strength. More testing next week and my birthday is August 3rd. Please keep the cards as well as other crafts coming. They are a great uplifting inspiration.

  • CatherineC in CanadaJuly 31, 2015 - 11:01 am

    I find it difficult to pick just one card, they’re all beautiful. What I liked even more were the touching, inspiring & comforting sentiments on them.

    I’m glad to hear you do receive a return on the sale of your dies, I didn’t release that was so. The dies are beautiful & so well designed. It adds to my joy in using them to know that you will receive something from me, albeit small, in return.ReplyCancel

  • KarenJuly 31, 2015 - 11:03 am

    Day 26 was a favorite if I have to pick one,but Becca just the fact that you went to all of this work for the month and actually read the posts makes the whole month special.I read.many if not all of the posts myself and such loving and caring people amongst the paper crafting group is just so amazing.ReplyCancel

  • LeAnne MadsenJuly 31, 2015 - 11:04 am

  • SuzzieQJuly 31, 2015 - 11:08 am

    My favorite part of this 30 Days of Giving was the overall collection that someone cared about me and what I thought. This month has been one of deep reflection and sharing on my part due to your question each day. Doing so made me realize just how much I had stifled my memories and emotions in the name of “self-preservation” so I could make it through another day for almost thirteen years. As I made my comment to your questions, a heavy weight of emotion was lifted from my soul bringing me back into today’s world and letting go of years of being a caregiver. You asked, I wrote, and you listened. Reflecting back on “how, when, and where” has helped me to find “me” again for I was “lost”. Thank you for caring.

    This month’s journey with you has been amazing. I can not just choose only “ONE” favorite of anything. So, in addition to how your questions made me feel, I will add some of my favorite cards and why:

    Colors: Pink & White cards: “You Brighten My Day”; “Hum of Bees”, day 28 – this is the one I won!

    Colors: Lavender & White cards: “Rest & Recuperate”, day 6; “Friendship is Found”, day 29.

    Original placement of ribbon: “A Smile You Send”, day 21

    Most moving sentiment: “Friends Wait to Hear”, day 26
    I am so glad you informed your viewers how we can help Amazing Paper Grace. I will be buying some of your dies to help support your efforts.

    God Bless You Becca!ReplyCancel

  • LisaericaJuly 31, 2015 - 11:09 am

    To answer your question, all your cards are beautiful and thoughtful but I’d have to say it was a combination between day 30’s card sentiment and reading all the other comments. Sometimes when your trying to navigate through your own sorrows it feels like your alone, that no one feels or understands what your going through. After reading everyone’s comments you realize your not alone, everyone is going through something. Weither we’re dealing with a loss, depression, health issues or even financial burdens we’re not alone. That’s something I love about this hobby, I’ve met some wonderful, caring friends. This hobby is about trying to brighten someone’s day, letting them you care, making them feel special. That’s an awesome hobby, it’s not about who wins or who comes in first place, it’s about making something beatiful and letting someone know their important to you.ReplyCancel

  • Joni StonekingJuly 31, 2015 - 11:12 am

    Well, you took a deep breath, and just set sail, now didn’t you? And you know, you always have had a friendly tone to your voice, but there is something new and different about it now…do you hear and feel it? There is a new depth and richness to it…and as I read through the response, I could hear it in your readers, and myself, too. A readership has become more of a community…hmmm..a FB group next?

    Love the sneak peek of your dies…and thanks for being brave end ugh to tell us what you need. Bet it took another deep breath to push send on that one, huh? Glad you did.

    Favorite card…oh, usually the last one I saw…and true today. Yesterday’s sentiment just settled deep within and is hanging out in my soul, so I think it must have been one I needed to hear. Thanks you again for this month. You precipitated more than you will ever know.ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn in E~TownnJuly 31, 2015 - 11:18 am

    Pick one day out of 30 days, R-E-A-L-L-Y there is NO WAY I can do that. . . every day, every card was stunning, gorgeous and filled with love and gorgeous embellishments, then to top off each day your questions stirred so many thoughts, insights and just made me think so deeply, to take a look at why I craft and why I send cards. BUT most of all it has been great to read others postings and know that there truly is a love for crafting and to keep the “written word” out there going around our world.
    Your blog is a Blessing to me somedays when life and stress have hit the maximum level, I turn to your blog for the peacefulness, gorgeous visuals and the most thoughtful ‘written word’. I am thankful you blog, thankful your create gorgeous dies, (I shall be broke around Sept. 15th) and hope life continues to Bless you, your family and the future of your crafting world!ReplyCancel

  • Christine MillerJuly 31, 2015 - 11:19 am


    Congratulations on the opportunity to spread your wings in a new endeavor! Your talent and creativity is in a class of its own, and I know you will design amazing dies and cards. We are all in for a treat!

    It has been so much fun to reflect on the questions you have posed and to read others’ replies. Thank you again for “going public” with your art! It would be an incredible blessing to have you for a neighbor or to share the same church, but you have offered that type of aquaintance to so many through your blog.

    Over the years, I have enjoyed many different crafting experiences, but scrapbooking was my passion. I didn’t even know what a blog was when I found APG, but it’s now a bookmarked place that I visit often. Usually, I ooh and aah over your cards…’s kind of like visiting a department store and taking a stroll through the formal wear department. Your cards are dreamy and delightful just like a special occasion dress…whether I can make ones like them or not doesn’t matter. It is fun to admire and to be inspired.

    Thank you for your part in my crafting journey. I value the written word and handmade gifts, and the month of July has inspired a a school project for my fourth grade students.

    Be blessed in your new paths!ReplyCancel

  • Joanne LoweJuly 31, 2015 - 11:21 am

    Thanks so much, Becca by knowing how we can give back to you. I have already bought so many of your dies and sets and kits (plus your bow-maker). Likely there are others who have every single item, but I have most. I do wish you’d make more as a designer, but thank you for letting everyone know how to help you out–I think it was wonderful to explain how it all works. You did it in such a manner of such integrity, and I would not expect any less from you to be honest.

    If it becomes more of an issue, please consider having some of your most dedicated subscribers set up some sort of a regular fundraiser to off-set the cost of your site. I don’t think anyone would ever want you to have to pay to give us this wonderful service, Becca! And I do have a feeling a number of your most dedicated subscribers would probably line up for the honor of helping organize some fundraisers for Amazing Paper Grace. Just give the call, and I think you will be touched by the tangible evidence of the love and support we all want to give to you.

    For some time, I have wanted to start my own tiny blog, and I do mean tiny. I’m on a disability income, so I couldn’t pay to run one, and this I hope won’t stop me from finding a way to have my own. I’d want mine to be about my card-making, my journey to eat and live healthier, and my spiritual walk too as I endeavor to have a closer relationship with my Savior. Physical issues keep me from making many more of the cards that I’d love to create, but it’s such a joy when I can create one, and I’ve improved so much–and have so much still to learn. I have enjoyed meeting such amazing women in this crafting area, and this is my first crafting experience ever. Previously I was much too busy to even think of crafting before my car accident, I was a classical musician who worked full-time as a university professor and I absolutely LOVED performing and teaching, to me it was a dream come true to be living this life. Then all too quickly it ended, or at least I had to take a leave of absence to find answers to be able to return to the work I love, and it turned out that the injuries were too great, too complex, and I will not ever be able to return. I’m grateful for this artistic outlet of card-making, it’s completely different and I don’t have the ability or background of a lifetime I had in music, nor does it give to me the same outlet, but it’s one none the same, and likely that outlet will grow as I’m able to make more and hopefully start that blog. First, a name… :) All to say that I hope that having my own little tiny blog will help me steer my ship in a better way…

    Thanks again for the 30 days, I wrote for most–when I could. I’m so glad to hear you are going to continue this on a weekly basis, it would be such an honor to win one of your cards someday! Your blog was one of the very first (as I’ve already mentioned) that I subscribed and followed, it may have been THE first, likely one of the first, and one I’ve kept even though my style and my needs have changed along the way and have let some of my subscriptions go in order to look at others that are more helpful to me now. But I continue to learn and grow from what I see you post, and also I appreciate what you say as well as the cards and other projects you post.

    It is my hope and my prayer that you will never have to again pay to keep your blog going once a group of subscribers get together and find some ways of fundraising if you need that help. What you give us is a wonderful service, and you should not have to pay to give to all of us. That really shocked me, as did the financial realities of what you do. So if you are OK with having some help, I’d consider putting out a call to have a group that would be like your fundraisers for a lack of a better term. I do think that you will be flooded with applications for this position. My health concerns would not allow me to take a front position, but I’d definitely would be willing to help whenever I can, that would be an honor. What do others think? I really hope I haven’t spoken out of turn, that is not at all my intent, only to be a support to you, Becca. If this isn’t what you’d want, then no problem, just disregard and I understand completely. Just know that I appreciate all of your cards, tutorials, and words of wisdom–I value all of these so very much!!! I know that God will guide you, all you need to do is ask Him…

    Blessings and hugs,


    • Kim GJuly 31, 2015 - 4:53 pm

      Hi Joanne, you wrote a lovely comment to Becca and mentioned about possibly starting your own blog. You can get a free blog with WordPress and with Blogger. Each one offers free simple templates for the way a site would look (not sure how technical you are and if this makes sense), but if you do a search at google, yahoo or bing for “Free WordPress” or “Free Blogger” websites, you will find lots of information and won’t have to pay anything. The costs come when you want your own url (like and various other attributes that got with maintaining and creating a website. I would suggest using WordPress versus Blogger as it is easier. If you would like to learn more, I would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. You can email me at txkickerbelle at gmail dot com. I have used both Blogger and WordPress, so I know both of them fairly well.

      Sorry Becca that I took up a spot on your comments, but was pulled to reply to Joanne and maybe help her out.ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenJuly 31, 2015 - 10:22 pm

      Hugs for your kind words Joanne. I feel really strongly that the site will always be free. No fundraising necessary – I’ll continue to work to fund it, just ask for support in the way of an occasional visit and support for products if they tickle your fancy. Those things will help amazingpapergrace into the future.

      I hope you do start a blog. As Kim mentioned, there are so many that are free. The only time you’ll get into a cost is with a large size and private domain.

      Best wishes! Let me know when you start your blog :-)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I do not need a prize,nor would I expect you to post one to Scotland! I love that you ARE saving the written word. It is so important. To know that someone has taken time to hand write/ make a letter or card is wonderful in itself. I have many of your designs and love them all. Just keep them coming.

    They are from days 6, 7, 8, 19, and 30.
    These particular cards spoke to me, whether it was from the layering, your gorgeous bows and what they add, or I already have some of those dies and gleaned ideas from you for them.

    The whole concept of thinking about the ‘why’ of doing papoercrafting more than the “how” was something I really needed. We get so immersed in techniques and products that we lose track of what an impact giving has on both the recipient and the giver.

    I don’t think I Could pick just one day that I enjoyed the most. All of the days were special from comments to your gorgeous creations! Loved them all!

    I’ve bought a number of your dies, and will continue to buy them because they are top,quality and always gorgeous!

    Hello Becca,
    You do so much for us with your wonderful blog. You have a God given talent and the fact that you share it with us is a blessing.
    July 17 spoke to me directly through the verse. My brother died suddenly and unexpectedly earlier this month and the shock has been enormous to his family and to me. We called ourselves “The Orphans” as we were the last two of our family. His wife, children and I cannot believe that we will never see him again in this life but the verse of your card, starting “Now God be praised” is so true because I am a true believer in Life after Death.

    I bet you’re exhausted Becca. What a great 30 days for all of your blog friends. What was my favorite – ALL OF THEM. Received my Day 21 winner card this morning. My heart is still fluttering.
    So happy to hear that you do make a little “royalty” on the sale of your dies. I am one of your biggest supporters and will have these as soon as they high the market. Can’t wait. I can see that there was a significant expense to you in doing this 30 Day Deal. My word the postage alone was almost $3 plus the box to put it in. You are one Kind Woman!!
    I would love to win the little Artisan Explorer! Looks like a sturdy little guy!!
    Thank you Becca from a very loyal fan!!

    WOUW you are soooo generous once again Becca, you really goes all the way, when you do things. After reading todays post, I´m even more glad, that I´ve asked my lovcal craftshop to get your other dies in stock over here, and already ordered one of each, even she was a little scared if she could sell the amount, she hadd to take in, but I convinced her, as I promissed her to make some ideacards for her, when I got mine, so I just hope, they´ll get here soon. Maybe it´ll be okay with you to share some of your lovely pictures here with her too, so she can show people how gorgeous they all are? I wount do unlwess it´s okay with you ofcause.
    I can´t pick one favorite among this months cards, cause there´s sooo many, but yesterdays and all you´ve made in white and gold and there was a light blue one early on too, that I was really crazy about, but unfortunately I haven´t been one of the lucky ones to win this month, no matter how much I´ve crossed everything, but ofcause I can see, there´s many, who wants to be chosen too ha ha ha.
    I hope, you´ll have a wonderful week-end now and lots of great fun too, and I can´t wait to see all the new dies, when they copme out too, and I promisse, I´ll do my part to make them known in my part of the world, as I really love them.ReplyCancel

    Miss Becca. What a joy and delight you are. Your generosity is exceeded only by your sweetness and kindness. Your 30 Days Of Giving have been more enjoyable than anything I’ve ever experienced on anyone’s blog. I personally found yesterday’s comments more difficult to read as so many, like yourself, have suffered terrible grievous loss and have persevered.

    I want you to know I have all of the dies, bow maker, etc., that you have designed. It is my delight to support your wonderful site. I wish I could do more! But I confess if you feature a die or other product, I find myself eager to buy it also because I so love everything you create. Sadly, the things I create are not ever as gorgeous as yours, but I can dream…..ReplyCancel

  • kathy mJuly 31, 2015 - 12:39 pm

    It was your questions (and the cards)! Your questions helped me think of where I was in my life, what motivated me, what brought me joy, how I have contibuted to others, and what adventures are still ahead. Of course, I never tire of seeing any and all of your cards! Each card is inspirational in its own light. Finally, to read comments posted by others made me feel apart of a community. So many comments represented my feelings. I felt that I had found sisters and brothers!!!!ReplyCancel

  • GrannymoJuly 31, 2015 - 12:39 pm

    Have enjoyed your 30 days of lovely cards, think my favourite was Day 27 although very hard to pick which was top of my list. Was interested to hear you need to have people visit your site and buy your products to make enough money to run your site. Although I visit your site often and have bought various Spellbinders dies, I never felt the need to leave a comment, however if that is what it takes to keep your site going I will be a little more chatty from now on.


  • kathy mJuly 31, 2015 - 12:45 pm

    Becca, I am so glad you were BRAVE by letting us know about the cost of keeping your site and server and web functionality alive for us! You fight for the purity and truth in your design, words, art, and in so doing, you fight for us too! By being brave and honest, you help us to be brave and honest in our communication too! I can’t wait to purchase your new dies from you! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • LoisJuly 31, 2015 - 12:46 pm

    Of course the best day and card was the one I won and thank you again. It will always be a treasure. I commented because of the gifts you were giving us in the card. Then I received my card and noticed the postage for sending it was $3 adding more of a gift. I also enjoyed the Christian comments from many of the people and from you as well. Sharing our love of cards of great but knowing many of us share in believing in Jesus is comforting. May God continue to bless you.ReplyCancel

Your new die looks absolutely awesome! Definitely purchase for sure! Thanks for all the inspiration you provide! ~ MonicaReplyCancel

  • Karen WeddingJuly 31, 2015 - 12:50 pm

    I have so enjoyed the 30-day giveaway. I think the best day was when you asked us to admit if we were hoarders or not and what specifically we hoarded. It made me realize how much I love buying paper, but then never want to use it up. I just want to hang on to it for that just-right project.ReplyCancel

  • Arielle BerceauJuly 31, 2015 - 1:02 pm

  • Susie NicholsJuly 31, 2015 - 1:06 pm

    I cannot possibly pick a favorite. Every day had something wonderful. Maybe it was the card or the sentiment. Quite often it was your words or the responses. I have been laughing, tearful, in awe, inspired…I have learned to look at dies differently. And today, I learned a little about blogs. I have often stopped by and looked, but only recently subscribed. Since these 30 days started, I have not missed a day. Now that I know the value of being a regular, I will be sure to stop by every day. Thanks again for sharing what you do so well.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara TranquillaJuly 31, 2015 - 1:13 pm

    Hi Becca, It was Day 13 using the Spellbinders’s Gold Elements corners that appealed to me most, though one card is prettier than the next and each card always has something different to notice and teach–just can’t remember all the lessons learned as I would like. Thanks for the info about subscribing. Didn’t know that made any difference because I check your site each morning. Also if we can buy the dies directly from you, I would be glad to do so even if it wouldn’t be the cheapest price in town. You certainly have earned a financial perk as well as recognition and love from your followers. BarbaraReplyCancel

  • Chris RJuly 31, 2015 - 1:31 pm

    Oh for sure I will be buying your new dies. Can”t wait to see the rest. I have many of your dies already. Just love ten. Thank you for giving me inspiration when making my cards. My mom gushes when I give her one. I say it’s one of Becca’s. You make the most beautiful cards and those little boxes and baskets are awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you!ReplyCancel

    So the end is not really the end. How grand! Speaking of grand, a new Artisan Explorer? Oh my. You’re going to have us swooning.

    I received my card today. My husband thought it was beautiful and you already know what I think of your creations. Thank you, again.

    Thank you for a beautiful month. It was fun to read some of the other paper crafter’s comments. I didn’t get to read all of them. Some you have to cry with. I have to say that day 23 about journaling was my favorite.

    Hopefully we can all give back a little to each other with random acts of kindness. I hope we can support you in some way or another.ReplyCancel

    wow I am sorry to see this go I really enjoyed coming everyday to see your beautiful cards, some new some old, to give away. I loved the comments left and I am thrilled that I WON a card (day 26) from you!!! I am so glad that you will continue to do this every Friday. I have purchased some of your dies and love the look of this one and I am sure I will love the future ones coming out too. You are an awesome card maker and any time I try to remake one of your cards for a friend or family member they always love it and I give to credit to you when they ask, waiting on this coming Friday for another great card.

    Hi Becca, I wait every day for your emails to see what new card you have made or new “how to” you have made. All your cards are absolutely exquisite. No one seems to make cards like you. I didn’t comment every day cause sometimes I just didn’t have an answer. I scan everyone’s comments too. I don’t think I have a favorite day or a favorite card cause I loved them all. Thank you for sharing your life, cards and adventures with us. Hopefully I can start buying some of your dies to use in my cuttlebug.ReplyCancel

  • RUTHANNJuly 31, 2015 - 1:44 pm

  • BerniceJuly 31, 2015 - 1:47 pm

    Hi Becca,
    I look at your blog almost everyday. Your cards are so beautiful! You are really an inspiration to me. I absolutely love all the cards you make so its always hard to pick a favorite one. I didn’t realize how important it was to comment on the blogs I follow everyday until I just read what you had posted today. I will definitely be more productive in commenting as I see now that it is important to each one of you who have a blog! I have to say you make the most STUNNING bows and I would just love to learn how to create bows like this. Can you provide any tutorial for them? I would also like to know if you would mind sharing with me/us where I could purchase the Neenah classic white paper you use? I can’t seem to locate it.

    Keep those beautiful cards coming the are TRULY AMAZING!


  • MichelleJuly 31, 2015 - 2:16 pm

    Dear Becca, thank you for all the inspirational days. I think the day you mentioned “Why do you craft”. The reason is when someone smiles really big and says” this is the most beautiful card I have ever received.” The smile says it all. To give joy to another.ReplyCancel

  • Ann HallJuly 31, 2015 - 2:25 pm

    Becca I love all the cards that you make. They are an inspiration to me. I especially love day 30 because of the comment ” Learning to sail my ship”. To me that means fowling God and his words. Thank you so much for your cards.

  • AlexandraJuly 31, 2015 - 2:34 pm

    What a difficult choice, your cards are all beautiful. I enjoyed the chance to see all those cards. I particularly was moved by day 30’s verse. It reminded me of a beautiful poem by Louis Lawrence “My Father’s at the Helm” I have in a book that belonged to my grandmother. This was a comfort to us whilst mour daughter was seriously ill on life support just over 2 years ago.ReplyCancel

  • Karen M. RothJuly 31, 2015 - 2:40 pm

    I am so sorry I missed yesterday’s Card (Day 30), but I was in just too much pain with my spine and neck and feet to be at my computer or even on my tablet.

    However, it would seem that that is my most favorite card out of the 30 Days of Giving.Not only because it is delicate and lacy like I love but, because it fits my current situation: You see, for 37 years I have let my Complex PTSD dominate my life (From Age 6 to age 43) and keep me from living my dreams. The Fear was draining! But No Longer, I started the process to get Treatment for my Complex PTSD and Depression.

    So please keep me in your prayers and also that I can follow the dream of running my Crafting blog like I really want to do.

    I sure hope I can win the Cutting and Embossing machine because it would relieve so much pain in my hands and arms and I could get Card Making again! But I know that all your drawings are Fair :o). But if I do not win would anyone be willing to cut dies and emboss papers for me? Pretty Please?ReplyCancel

  • Adaline CooperJuly 31, 2015 - 2:47 pm

    Becca, I really enjoyed the 30 days of giving. To me the best was when you asked what type of cards do you send out most. Birthday cards were the most I sent out before, but seeing you friendship cards enlightened me that the friendship card will do a lot to lift someone up. You never know what kind of day they have had and this way they can get more than one card a year or wait for their birthday or Christmas. I will be sending out more friendship cards after seeing your cards. Thanks so much for the enlightenment.ReplyCancel

    Gosh….pick a favourite day….hmmmm that would be day 1. The reason? Because of your generosity and genuine interest in what everyone has had to say. You are such a beautiful person and your questions have given me pause to think about my life, who I create for and why. The time and effort that you put into your cards and your heartfelt desire to share with others is such a wonderful thing. My favourite Becca is you!ReplyCancel

I thought all the days were very thought provoking and made me realize why I love to make cards and craft in general. I so enjoyed reading everyone’s comments. So many of them were my story as well.

    I’ve surprised myself by getting so engrossed in your month long historic essay. I’ve actually enjoyed reading everyone’s comments and it even got me to sit and think awhile about your daily question, some so simple but thought provoking. It also gave me another chance to enjoy your ‘older’ cards again. I thank you for sharing your cards and life with all of us. Most definitely, any venture can be costly and you have to rethink your expenditures and put things into perspective…..BUT you seem to be like me in that my love experience with card making and what it does for me emotionally and spiritually certainly out weights all expenses and I seek other ways to continue with this adventure. Again, thank you for being Becca. The question that cut to my heart the most was about ‘flying’ and what it has done for me and where it is leading me. Aloha.ReplyCancel

    I must have hit a button by mistake, too early. I like the look of your new dies, these will be a lovely addition to my collection.
    I had started to tell you why I particularly loved day 30’s card. I was reminded of the difficult time 2 years ago, we prayed for God to help our daughter return to us while she was critically ill, and on life support.
    I have a beautiful book that belonged to my grandmother called “The Seasons” by Louis Lawrence. In this, there is a poem “My Father’s at the Helm” I’ve quoted a few lines below;
    It tells the story of a ship in a terrible storm, a frightened crew and a wee boy, the captain’s son, “Who steadfast viewed the storm; and fearless with composure smiled at danger’s threatening form”.
    “And fear’s thou not, a seaman cried, while terrors overwhelm”
    “Why should I fear? My father’s at the helm”
    “Thus when our worldly hopes are left and our earthly comforts gone, we still have one sure anchor left,- God helps and He alone.”
    ” Turn to Him mid terrors wild, When sorrows overwhelm, Remembering, like the fearless child, Our Father’s at the Helm.
    Our daughter survived, astounding doctors who later said that in the first week when she was unconscious they didn’t think she would make it. God is good! xxReplyCancel

    I loved all of your cards Becca! They are are all gorgeous creations! My lovely aunt has made a scrapbook of every card I have sent her in the past 20 plus years that I have been making cards! I would always try to sent her a card a month no matter what. She passed away this past May, so for the last 2 months I have caught myself addressing an envelope to her! It has been hard but I have to remember the joy it brought her! That’s what this hobby does!ReplyCancel

    Oh goody, Becca,
    I’m sure most of us were feeling a little sad about your “30 days” coming to a close. I couldn’t help feeling one door was closing and another was opening. I share your happiness as you debut your new creations. You certainly ARE learning how to sail your ship!

    I don’t even own a die cut machine but I thought, as I read about your new dies, “I’ll use the build it and they will come principle”. But, by the end of the post, I learned you are giving away a machine. Gloryhallelujahwow! How exciting!

    Since there may be others who are interested, when your new dies are released, will we be able to SHOP here for them? I’m also curious if your bow maker tool is still available and where can we get that?

    My favorite day was day 30. Reading everyone’s comments made me feel that here are beautiful women who would make wonderful friends. I really feel part of a community. I don’t mind saying, again, day 25’s card is my personal favorite, thinking of fessing up to being ‘hoaders’ still make me smile and I love the invitation to contemplate our craft in a deeper way.

    Love and blessings,

    Hi Becca, I have been a long-time subscriber, but don’t always comment. You are by far my favorite designer. I have pseudo replicated many of your cards over the years to give away to my friends and family and everyone is always so complimentary of the cards I make. I want to thank you for doing what you do and sharing your immense talent (and a little piece of your life) with the crafting world. I always look forward to your posts and wish I could make bows like you!!! ;-) I do not wish to be considered for the give away, so if luck would be that my name was drawn, please pass me up and give it to another deserving reader. I have too many machines and do not need another one. Thank you for being the awesome person that you are.ReplyCancel

Your are a friend. Looking forward to your new dies. Also please think of new videos for your bows. I bought your bow maker when it first was available an love it.

I visit everyday just to see what has come out of that wonderful mind of yours. I had lots of favorites, but honestly, where I find myself in life right now, the card and message from day 30 was the most dear to my heart.

I just enjoyed the whole month of really thinking about the different questions and reminding myself why we make cards, etc. I have always enjoyed visiting your blog and will continue to visit every day you post. It is sort of like having coffee or in my case tea with your friend and catching up on things. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new dies in September.

Yes, I am sure I can find room in my stash of dies for your Cascading Grace Pockets. Looking forward to seeing your new line and will continue to be a regular to your site.

    Although I have admired your work for several years, this is the first time I found your blog. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a prize. I love papercrafting and die cutting is a big part of it for me. The lacy filligree dies are my favorites. Good luck with your venture and make it an adventure! Your work is beautiful. I have just moved into a new home and my crafting space is still in the process of getting organized. Can’t wait to get back to it. Thank you again for the opportunity and for sharing with us.ReplyCancel

    I’m a wild and crazy woman of God and have to be honest; to me picking one of your designs over another would be like telling my children that one of them was my favorite. Your designs are heaven sent! More than amazing grace to me. Who would not love one, even if just to put in a place of honor in a shadow box! I’m crazy in love with all of them. Thank you for sharing and putting your heart into everything you design!ReplyCancel

    I loved every day of the journey, Becca, and would find it impossible to choose just one! They were each special in their own way and I thank you for your generosity in sharing your wonderful talent, mounting a 30 day giveaway treat for us and giving us insights into your thoughts.
    Your new dies look amazing and I can’t wait to see what other wonders you have in store for us.
    Thank you for allowing us to share your creative journey. It has been a particular blessing to me as I head for an MRI scan on Monday and a possible op on my elbow now in addition to my damaged shoulder and humerus. I have been struggling to write left-handed today and all I can say is, thank goodness for technology and machines at a time like this as everything I put on paper is pretty illegible. I sincerely hope that I will be able to do ‘handmade’ again!

    I visit your blog daily. I really enjoy visiting your website for ideas and inspiration. Your website reflects a lot of hard work and passion for designing. Card making has become my hobby for the last 2 years. One thing that I love about your website is that your message is so positive and uplifting. I can’t imagine how many long hours you have spent to maintain your website. Several months ago when I became a subscriber my first impression was this site was a large specialty paper company with beautiful card making ideas and hundreds of staff members that helped with inspiration. Over the the course of several months I soon realized that this website was so much more amazing and that there is only one person that is behind the curtain. The wizard of card design. I have watched all your youtube videos and tried my best to read as many blog post as I could from the beginning while also trying to keep up with your current post. I don’t know how you do what you but I am so thankful for this blog. I own more spellbinders than I know what to do with and your blog has help me experiment outside the box. I have searched the web for a step by step book for spellbinder design for beginners and it does not exist. Your website,youtube, and pinterest is the next best thing help. I hope there is a physical book of ideas coming out soon. There are times when technology is not always available or accessible. In conclusion what I loved most about 30 days of giving are the card puzzles. I look at the pictures of your cards first before reading what dies and materials you used. I really had fun guessing and checking if I owned the set or wanted to add to my collection. Hugs d6c SheleaReplyCancel

    Oh my goodness, Becca! I have just discovered my name against Day 30, but had to check the time of my post as I couldn’t believe my eyes and even though I knew that I was the only person going by that name, I still thought it must be someone else! I don’t know what to say except thank you, thank you and I am dizzy with excitement and awe and disbelief!
    I had just commented that I couldn’t possibly choose the best day, but I think you won’t be surprised now if I say that it has to be today :o)
    I shall continue to stare at the picture until I have a ‘Becca creation’ in my hands. Please know that I will treasure it always!

    Wow! This has been 30 wonderful days here on your blog. Thank you, Becca, for your generous spirit, sharing your cards and now this incredible die cutting machine. I have enjoyed your beautiful cards and the dialog created by your questions. I read so many of the comments and found myself inspired, challenged to be thankful and reminded how something as small as a card can make a difference in someone’s life.

    I am happy you shared about your new dies coming out. I have no doubt they will be as stunning as every other die you’ve designed and I will anxiously be waiting to buy mine. Supporting you in this way is my pleasure and a small return for your generosity. I cannot wait to see the cards you create from these dies.

    I am incredibly blessed to have been the Day #12 winner. The card arrived today and even holding it in my hands, I can still hardly believe I actually won one. I love this beautiful card and it will always be my favorite. I intend to frame it and keep it in my craft room. I don’t believe it is by luck that the card I won has The Serenity Prayer as the sentiment. During the last two years, I have been challenged to accept the things I cannot change and your card is a lovely reminder of this. My second favorite would have to be the last one. I love the filagree and pink is my favorite color. I learned to make that type of card from your blog and it is my favorite style card.

    Thank you so much for sharing your delightful works of art, Becca. You truly are a woman who lives her faith.

    The thing I love about you most is your honesty ! it is a very rare thing
    In today’s world sadly.
    Lots of people are so self motivated you are such a special person.
    Your God given talent has been given to you for a reason you have been chosen
    specialy have no doubt .
    My craft store is super and have just got a website going , I have asked for your dies and I have cut out die cuts to share and show how beautiful they are .
    I will be ordering some new ones by the look of this , most of us have to budget
    but it is also good to share with friends .
    The comments the ladies leave are an insight to other people’s lives and bring
    things into perspective for all of us , some make us laugh some make us sad .
    I love all your cards they all have special qualities dies , quotes, colours and
    the way you use you dies eg gates in a feminine pink and white not as a gate .
    Well done to you lucky ladies who won …… God bless all of you who are unwell

    I too have a couple of machines & my name should be left out of the running for that lovely Artisan.

Yesterdays was extra special, since I’ve watched you adjust your sails in the last couple of years. You are an amazingly strong, talented, determined and generous woman. I’m thrilled to see that you’ve got some new dies coming out, can’t wait to see them all! As always your cards are lovely and inspirational…you have the best selection of sentiments! Looking forward to seeing your newest designs,

  • barb macaskillJuly 31, 2015 - 10:17 pm

    I have only left a comment a couple times this month because life has been pretty rough. Reading all the comments that others have written made me feel not so alone and that maybe, just maybe, there is an end to what I am going through. I have loved seeing all of the gorgeous cards that you have given away and it makes my heart full knowing that others are also doing wonderful things to make this world a little bit better place to be! If we all sent 1 card a week to someone, just because or for an occasion, it would make lots more people smile, maybe for the first time in a long time. I try to send at least a few cards each week and am random about it. Sometimes I will see an address and name on a mailbox when I am out and I write it down and send a Just Because card to them. I have yet to be found out and don’t want others to know it is me. At Christmas time I have around 15-25 kids that I send letters from Santa to letting them know that I will be there on Christmas Eve so they have to get right to bed that night. If I am lucky enough to know the family leaves their door unlocked when they go to Christmas Eve mass I will slip a few little goodies under their tree with a card. If the door is licked then I leave them outside the door to find when they get home.
    It is such a wonderful feeling to know that you are making a difference, no matter how little, in someone’s life.
    Thank you for keeping the written word alive!! I wish more people would follow suit!!!
    Have a wonderful weekend!ReplyCancel

And I think spellbinder owes you, I’ve purchased so many dies just cuz I wanted to make some card similar to what you showed. Thank you for all you share each dayReplyCancel

  • ShaneanJuly 31, 2015 - 10:51 pm

    Day 21 was my favorite. I thought about the question and had to admit to all three, lean crafter, collector and hoarder. I was nice admitting this where others would understand what it means in part to be a crafter. Wanting it when you don’t really need it, getting it anyway and having more stuff than you know you will ever use.

    It was also fun to read some of the comments.

    Thank you for a fun and thoughtful month with beautiful cards Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Diana GeorgeJuly 31, 2015 - 11:01 pm

    Well I was so sorry I had to miss so much of your give away. I was to go in for surgery and ended up with pneumonia and not getting my surgery. I was very I’ll and didn’t touch the tablet till today. I have been catching up with everything that’s been happening. I sure love your cards and love how you inspire people. You have kept me interested when things have been tough health wise. They tell me my next surgery will give me some more energy so I’m getting ready to make a card for you to thankyou for all you have done for all of us that visit you. I have enjoyed everything about this give away and cannot choose just one thing. Hope you understand . We’ll l am back in for surgery Aug 27 but I will be checking in to see what’s new.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca!
    I can not believe that it has been 30 days! Wow! that was a blink of the eye, don’t you think?

    As far as cards go…I can not honestly chose a favorite…I loved them all!

    However, You asked a question that has stuck with me ever since. (I am so sorry but I can not remember which day it was.) Your question was, “What burdens you?” That was an especially painful day and I believe that those things that I shared with burden me for many years to come.

    Thanks for this great experience!

    Okay, today’s comment is a difficult one. For me, the favorite part of your 30 Days of Giving was the cards. Every day we were shown a work of art. Really, I have NEVER seen cards made like yours. They are amazing. I had a really difficult time choosing a favorite one too. But I have to say that Day 12’s card is my favorite. Thank you for all your time and energy in making the last 30 days so much fun… even though I didn’t win.ReplyCancel

    Good morning Becca, oh dear me you’ve done it once again!!!
    Thankyou for your 30 days of giving!!! What a roller coaster it’s been!!!
    I couldn’t choose I would have to say them all, well I could say day 13!!!
    Or I could say day 21 the day my grandson was born, but I’ve enjoyed
    every single day, it’s been like a breath of fresh air!!!
    Bless you you sweet angel and you’re still giving!!!
    I feel like I know some of the people that have wrote on your blog it’s strange
    getting a glimpse into other people’s lives that you don’t know but feel as though
    you do : ) Thankyou for that too!!!
    I hope everyone will still keep posting!!!
    Good luck everyone!!!

    Hi Becca,
    I rarely make any comments on the blogs that I visit as generally the posts on those blogs(same as yours) come at least one day late and quite often two or three(I live in remote Western Australia)and feel a bit like I have missed the boat. However I would like this once to say a very large THANK YOU for the pleasure you give me just by allowing me to read your blog. I am a letter writer by nature, I’m afraid a lot of technology has passed me by so text messages and such are out of my realm but the written word to my mind is something to treasure and just seeing these cards this past month has been sheer delight. Once again I THANK YOU and wish you health and happiness and good luck in all your endeavours.ReplyCancel

    Morning Becca, This new die set is amazing, can’t wait to see what you create.

    My second favourite card was Day 24, I love the ‘quirky’ side to this card, it really appealed to me.

    Hi Becca

    Although I visit your blog every other day, I am not the sort who usually leaves comments very often, I think because it seems a bit impersonal to me. It’s not the same as a handwritten note to a friend when you post a blog comment on the WWW that everyone can see. But going back over your ’30 Days of Giving’ blogs, I am moved by your kindness and sincerity, your strength and your inspiration. It is so difficult to choose a favourite card from the last month; some are simply more exquisite than others, but they all speak love to me. If I had to pick a blog entry though, I would say Day 21. I too have “special places” where I put treasured items to keep them safe – safe from myself mostly (like you)! Your comments made me laugh and that’s a lovely thing Becca. Thank you and I hope your blog continues for as long as you want it to. Love, G.ReplyCancel

You have always blown me away with the most stunning, gorgeous cards I have ever seen in the cardmaking world!! You made me want to buy every die you used on your cards! Unfortunately I don’t have those deep pockets…but what you have always amazed me with is how you take any die and sometimes only use a snippet of it to come up with another stunning piece of your card! That’s the super talented gift you have!! Sometime’s I look at your card, then I have to go look at a picture of the die to recognize it….awesome, awesome talent!!ReplyCancel

The amazing part is that I have gained so much from this 30 days of giving and am going to try to truly give more of myself. You have been my inspiration for giving, you give of yourself every time you design a card, you do it with love of the art, you do it because you care, you do it for us to go WOW!, what a beautiful card, you do it to teach us how to put pieces together. Your are truly AMAZING PAPER GRACE.

    Well, tripping back through some of the days I may have missed I found that I really like Day 26 because it is so beachy looking and the quote was priceless and meant a lot to me because my Friends are truly few (All of 3). So to find a good friend is treasure indeed.

    Now who got me hooked on Paper Crafting was you. I love your Style, Strength, Vulnerability, Courage, Faith, Kindness, Sweetness,and your Generosity to all. And even if I never win anything from your blog I still feel that way about you. I speak from my heart to yours.ReplyCancel

    Dear Becca, thank you for this month. There is no one day that stood out for me. The whole month has been special as we’ve been given the opportunity to reflect on your questions. I also want you to know that, though I do not comment often, I visit your blog everyday (& sometimes more than once a day) because I truly love your work. Together with Chrstina Griffiths (Cardmaking magic), you are my top “go to” blogs everyday. I also love your new dies! Blessings xxReplyCancel

  • BrendaAugust 1, 2015 - 2:09 pm

    You are truly gifted-as a crafter, a writer and more.
    I just came upon your 30 days of give aways this A.M. I went back to see the cards and read that days topic. I admit that the end was the most meaningful to me. I have learned not to be afraid of the storm-for I know “whose” I am and who carries me through the good and bad of this “journey” life is taking me. The Lord has taught me to take one day at a time.
    I retired (early) about 4 years ago, did not plan for the “what’s next” but am positive about the future. I too am a life-long “crafter” of all things handmade-still struggling to find my niche.
    Yes, I’m learning to sail my ship.
    P.S. Yes there is HOPE in our young people carrying on. I taught school for 35 years and still amazed at there tenacity.
    Sincerely, BrendaReplyCancel

  • Sandi SmithAugust 1, 2015 - 4:29 pm

    Good afternoon Becca! I hope I am correct in my understanding that we can leave one comment per day. I didn’t include my favorite question of the day in my comment yesterday. Your “sail your own ship” question was a favorite because I found myself stopping to reflect on where I am within myself and my faith. My strongest desire is to serve God. Have I been doing that since my accident in January? Your question caused me to ask myself IF I was sailing and IF I was doing it with God leading. I have had to be completely dependent on someone else to take care of me. At times I’ve struggled a lot. It is a humbling experience but I see that because of my faith, I am stronger. I am a child of God and I am weathering this storm because God is at my helm. I am so thankful for all I have learned about myself. Thank you for asking such a thought provoking question.
    Blessings, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Arielle BerceauAugust 1, 2015 - 5:28 pm

    I love Day 10 because I have that die and didn’t think I liked it until I saw it on your beautiful card, now I know what to do with my die.ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn MeadowsAugust 1, 2015 - 5:31 pm

    I was a stamping up demonstrator for a while until I started
    looking at this website and I’ve been blown away at your designs.
    I’ve never seen such amazing cards anywhere else. I have purchased several of your dies thru ebay and have enjoyed every
    single one!!! keep up the beautiful work and designs, love them
    all and last but not least….I am hooked for sureReplyCancel

    Good morning Becca How can you ask for a favourite card? Each and every day has been an inspiration and if I could get one of my cards looking halfway like yours I would be happy. You are an inspiration and your efforts to show us how we can accomplish more from our dies is a godsend. Thank you for all that you do!

  • Deb M.August 1, 2015 - 8:53 pm

    I love the card on day 27! That’s either the first or 2nd card I saw of yours when I found your site (Yes…I’m THAT new here!) and I fell in love and spent an hour or two just looking at your cards! They are just so beautiful! That one has the perfect sentiment on it, for the online friend who got me inspired enough to try making my own cards. She would send me cards she made from time to time and I enjoyed them a LOT. So I thought of her as soon as I saw that card. Loved the bow, and the beautiful mats you used! You are an inspiration!!ReplyCancel

  • Beverly WainwrightAugust 1, 2015 - 9:01 pm

    Becca I have just finished making my box of note cards. I have enjoyd the challenge and look forward to getting more dies aso I can do other things you have shared with us. They are all so beautiful. I have enjoyed watching the you tubes so much! I run it for a min. stop do the work and then start it again some times it takes me 30 min. trying to get through a 2 min frame. Thanks again for sharing your AMAZING ART SKILLS!ReplyCancel

  • Jackie TAugust 1, 2015 - 11:08 pm

    Your final day’s sentiment really struck a chord with me. I am new at work and I have been learning a lot of new things. I sometimes wonder if I am doing things right, or if I am learning fast enough. But I draw strength from praying first thing in the morning, for the Lord to give me strength to get me through the day. And My Lord never disappoints! That much I know! :)ReplyCancel

  • Wanda BassAugust 1, 2015 - 11:36 pm

    Hi Becca,
    Thank you for inspiring me with all your sweet and lovely designs I enjoy coming here to rest a bit before I go to sleep.
    One of my favorite cards was day 28 where you used the Victorian corners to create a “medallion” What a great idea! You keep giving me such good ideas for my own cards.

    Blessings to you.

  • JuneRoseAugust 2, 2015 - 3:23 am

    I’ve followed your website for some years now, popping in to see your beautiful cards which have given me such inspiration. I’m afraid I’m a real novice compared with your designs, and being a senior citizen in the UK, very limited in what I can afford or obtain in the way of dies. Do keep on making some beautiful things so that I can keep on following you.ReplyCancel

  • MinnieAugust 2, 2015 - 4:00 am

    Wow, more Amazing dies! I was hoping you would have the time to design some more. The others are so beautiful and I can’t wait to get the new ones. I try to get on every day but sometimes the time runs away with me. I just get so much joy from seeing your lovely cards and I look forward to more inspiration in the future.ReplyCancel

    It’s been fun taking part in your giveaway month. I loved seeing your cards everyday and most of all it was fun to see what others had to say in their comments. Makes me realize what a great community stamping can be and how we all face some of the same challenges and interests. Thank you so much for sharing your craft with us. Looking forward to seeing what new dies you have created and happy to see that some revenue will help with your blog. Hope to see more tutorials coming our wayReplyCancel

    I loved seeing your array of homemade cards Becca, even if it was for the second time (I’ve been on your mailing list for years). Also, for the past 31 days I’ve looked forward to seeing what the next question you were going to pose for your readers, some of them really made the gears start turning, and brought back many good memories. There is no way that I can just choose one, either card or comment. Thanks for offering up such a grand prize … you’re the best!ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca! This has been such a fabulous month! Each day surpassing the last, each card more stunning than the one before. Reading the comments while pondering my own answers lead my thoughts in very interesting directions. Your talents extend far beyond your beautiful artistry, to leading others to personal growth and reflection. We THANK YOU for all you give
    so willingly, and look forward to each new post with great anticipation! As for my favorite day of this month, I will say it was day 1, as it opened the door to this VERY SPECIAL month. Congratulations to those lucky enough to receive one of your treasures, but all who read the posts are winners! I have many of your dies, and truly feel that Spellbinders should be paying you a commission, as your blog spurred my Spellbinder obsession! And I tell them that at each Craft show that has a booth! I have met and spoken with several different reps at various events and never fail to mention your name and to give credit where credit is due. Hugs!! s.ReplyCancel

  • DixieAugust 2, 2015 - 2:33 pm

    Thank you, Becca, for the exciting, enjoyable, inspiring month. I am so happy for all the lucky ones who received the cards. I’m also sorry that I don’t leave comments often enough. I’m changing that as of today!
    My favorite card was from day 8, the beautiful white,lacy with a window, spray of small flowers & a big pink bow. Love that you use those colors so much! The sentiment was “You brighten my day.” Maybe that’s why I was attracted to it. I recently decided that I have too many cards not being sent. You know the ones I mean. They’re not perfect in my eyes but the recipient won’t know that.ReplyCancel

    Every day was special for me.I think a lot of people will be back here to read again and again your precious tips you share with us. My favourite is day fourteenth card becouse of new way of using this corner die. It’s brilliant and even my boyfriend was intrested (it means something). I’m also suprise of rediscover Adorning Squares die set, which I don’t imagin could look so stunning in cards. Have a nice day Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Karen M. `RothAugust 2, 2015 - 8:59 pm

    I really like day 25’s card. I always strive to do something Creative every day for two reasons,

    1. It eases the pain of my heart and trauma dampened Spirit. In all my 43 years of living I have only been put down, used and abused and I strive to keep others from experiencing what I have had to go through.

    So sometimes I really need to Create my Own Encouragement, which has been really hard lately since I am in such high physical pain. But I still strive to do at least one 10-15 minutes worth of crafting everyday whether it is cards, crocheting, sewing, Hand-quilting small projects, or making flower arrangements. All this to say and to quote an old Proverb –“Those who wish to sing always find a Song”.

    So many times we fall into the trap of Satan’s lies of thinking that people should be feeling sorry for us because of our disabilities when instead we should be focusing on what we can still do and to do it with passion. As even in our Disabled State We can still be a great inspiration to someone else.

    2. Because it takes you beyond yourself and into someone else’s life that may not have had anyone in it before or at least bad examples of what love really is. Giving really is a two-fold Blessing! The more you give of yourself, time, money, services whatever, it really comes back to you 100 fold.ReplyCancel

The card that touched my heart the most is the learning to sail my ship card. Our son has progressive MS and it is moving far faster than doctors expected. My husband has dementia which is taking it’s toll. This last year has ben really hard but has definitely made me stronger.

    Becca, your questions to us were very thought provoking for me and I thank you for asking them. I’ve so enjoyed seeing these beautiful cards on a daily basis. Although it is hard to pick a favorite (as there are several), I would say the Day 28 card was one that I thought a friend of mine would appreciate as she is an avid gardener and they keep bees. There were others, as well, that are just stunning (day 10, 29, 30). I like them for their verses and their beauty. I will do what I can to support you in your quest to keep your blog alive and well. I thought that your wording of the request was eloquent. My best wishes for the future.ReplyCancel

    One thing I’ve learned from the card making craft is that you make some of the most beautiful cards I’ve ever seen! What I have personally learned is that even though I love patterned paper, I use plain colored card stock a lot more than I use patterned paper, that I should wait to purchase those “must have” dies, because there WILL be some I want more the next season, and people appreciate and love to receive hand made cards.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I love the bows you make on your cards. Can you share how you make the bows with 3 loops, they look like they’re perfectly stacked instead of all one bow by itself. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    Bekka I missed out on my opportunity to win all of the 30 days of giving as I was gone, without my internet. It was worth it to welcome my first grandson into the world! I think you have done a phenomenal job with your blog and look forward to many many more posts and awesome ideas, as well as future dies!!! I have several so far and am certain there will be more in my future! Thank you for continuing to supply us with awesomeness!ReplyCancel

    I think the biggest thing I have learned, and there have been many, is not to buy “one in every color” so to speak, as there is always something better, easier, less expensive right around the corner. I have learned to be more selective.ReplyCancel
