I Almost Forgot . . .

. . . oh goodness, I know I’ve been quiet today.  Believe it or not, I was working on another top secret project around here.  Lol, you all are going to have to get a security clearance to come and have a look with all this top secret stuff going on.  Doesn’t that drive you crazy?  You know I love you all!!  Where else can I come and talk about such exciting stuff.   I have a post coming at the end of the week that’ll have you silently nodding and saying ‘uh huh, that makes sense”.   In the meantime, I wanted to toss this little tidbit out there, because you all always let me bask a bit in the warmth of accomplishment! :-)

This is a publication that is now available on the market and I had an ensemble published in there.  It might be harder this time around to figure out which is me . . . but then again, I might just be underestimating your ever so keen, and knowing, eyes!!  Here’s a link to it – Quick and Easy Crafts for Entertaining.

The book actually became available late December, but this is the first time I’ve had a chance to look through.  Some great designers have things here and the projects are all quick and easy (you all have no idea how hard that can be sometimes – ha-ha!!)

I should be back with a project tomorrow but don’t forget the blog candy I currently have going on.  Again, up for grabs, some luscious double sided Prima paper – simply pop over to this post – https://www.amazingpapergrace.com/the-best-of-both-blog-candy/.

    Congrads to you Becca!!

    I viewed the pages, and if one of those is you I would say “MENU”

    But I haven’t seen the book but I’ll be looking for it.

    Congrads again…..ReplyCancel

  • Carole ScheelJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:40 pm

    Published! How wonderful. Will you show us how you made the flower top on the box? The cut, fold spellbinders? I look forward to your postings and check my mailbox twice a day looking for a posting from you. Bless you.ReplyCancel

  • Kathy OJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:43 pm

    Congrats, Becca! I, too, looked at the images and would pick “Menu” as your creation, if one of them is yours.

    They are all quite clever, fun, and lovely. I’ll be looking for the magazine.ReplyCancel

  • Carol WJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:45 pm

    Well done! I think it’s wonderful that your beautiful work is being published. I looked at the sample images for the book and my guess would be the white and pink “Menu” collection… But that’s just my little guess.ReplyCancel

  • sandyhJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:46 pm

    i agree that the menu page looks most like you!

  • christiJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:46 pm

  • KathyJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:48 pm

  • DeniceJanuary 23, 2012 - 9:57 pm

    I imagine most of us will be able to figure out what is yours…. you got your own style kiddo….. Hugs and God bless…… DeniceReplyCancel

  • Cheryl LeaJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:07 pm

    Okay, I’ll guess…you make the set with the menu, place card, and flatware holder, didn’t you? Gorgeous! I’ll definitely be checking out that book! Congrats!ReplyCancel

  • cardchickJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:08 pm

    HOW EXCITING!!!! and CONGRATS TO YOU…. as I was browsing the magazine…my guess would be the last pic..MenuReplyCancel

  • Sharon FieldJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:08 pm

    Yup…….my guess is the MENU one…………….looks like you! CONGRATS, by the way!ReplyCancel

  • Linda W.January 23, 2012 - 10:18 pm

    Oh Becca you know how to tease a person I can’t wait to
    see the book…thanks for always sharing
    hugs LindaReplyCancel

  • CindyJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:23 pm

    Of course you did the Mom sentiments–they reflect your amazing style!

  • Patsy EcclesJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:26 pm

    I know, I know …pick me for the answer. You HAD to do the beautiful Mom card with the Becca ribbon and bow!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • SharonJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:31 pm

    Okay…it looks like the one I picked is a very popular one!!!! If you didn’t do the very last page…we are all in trouble!!!! Congratulations! Now, when are you going to tell us who was right???? LOLReplyCancel

  • Gloria WestermanJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:36 pm

    Congratulation!!! Will have to check it out…..ReplyCancel

  • Lindyloo, South Wales, UKJanuary 23, 2012 - 10:50 pm

    Congrats Becca
    I can’t get the book so I hope you will show a pic of your entry into the publication, please.
    All the best LindaReplyCancel

  • LalaJanuary 23, 2012 - 11:21 pm

    Well Becca, as I think you are the Queen of Spellbinders I they could publish a book entirely with your creations. Sincere congratulations to you.ReplyCancel

  • Judy I, St. Louis MOJanuary 23, 2012 - 11:35 pm

    Congrats on getting published. I have to agree with Lala – you could definitely write a book of your own creations. You are torturing us with your secrets though. Can’t wait to see what you’re hiding.ReplyCancel

  • ChelseaJanuary 23, 2012 - 11:52 pm

    Congratulations!!! I’m so proud to know your work has been recognized and published!!! BB=Brilliant Becca!!! I will look forward to when you DO publish your own book, filled with ONLY your work. It would sell out out in minutes…
    Anyway, you ROCK, Becca!!ReplyCancel

  • MaryannJanuary 24, 2012 - 1:58 am

    Congratulations hun, that is so cool. I guess on either the princess stuff or the menuset, that is just so your lovely style. I agree with those above, why not make your own book? I would definitely go for it, that´s for sure.
    I ´m soo lookiing forward to see, what your new secret are here later, so exiting Becca, but we know, it´ll be good , when it comes from you.ReplyCancel

  • Christine Harrop, Oxfordshire, UKJanuary 24, 2012 - 2:11 am

    Well done on your entry into the book. My guess is the final one too – the menu set. To me it shrieks “Becca”. You know, we are all going with the same theme here: a book of Becca Creations would go down a storm!!! Your blog friends alone would make it a top seller!!!
    love Christine xxReplyCancel

  • Nadine IllingworthJanuary 24, 2012 - 3:00 am

    Congrats, You and Sue Wilson are my favourite spellbinder wizard. Well done againReplyCancel

  • michelle frasherJanuary 24, 2012 - 3:53 am

    wow, how exciting for you. i’m also going to guess the page with the ‘mom’ card and the ‘becca bow’. altho you could have done any of them but that one seemed to be more you than the others.ReplyCancel

  • Debbie BJanuary 24, 2012 - 4:35 am

    Oh wow you must be down in the trenches working overtime! Congratulations on being published once again! Remeber to come up for air and take a Becca break so you don’t get feeling bad. Hope all is well for you and yours!ReplyCancel

  • janeyJanuary 24, 2012 - 5:08 am

    Congratulations – what an honor…..thanks for the look at the book. I’d guess that your’s is the last picture – placecard, silverware holder, menu on the plate….how charming.


  • Monika/buzsyJanuary 24, 2012 - 6:15 am

    Oh, wow! Looks like a fabulous book! Congratulations! I am sure you projects are breathtaking as always! :o) You are so clever with your dies Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Bonnie WeissJanuary 24, 2012 - 6:27 am

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they line up at your door, wanting a piece of your creativity, Becca. Congrats!ReplyCancel

  • FrancineJanuary 24, 2012 - 6:46 am

    For sure the menu.

  • Cathy AJanuary 24, 2012 - 6:49 am

    Congrats on your publication, you are so deserving as your work is amazing, I would guess that you did the menu set, I thought all the designs were wonderful though!ReplyCancel

  • Becky GreenJanuary 24, 2012 - 7:30 am

    CONGRATULATIONS Becca!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) I’m SURE it makes you feel SOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) If it were me, I’d be riding high for AWHILE!!!!!! :)ReplyCancel

    So happy for you Becca. God has blessed you with such amazing gifts. Thank you for sharing them with the crafting world! Can’t wait to find out what your big secret is. I am sure it will be AMAZING!ReplyCancel

  • Donna LJanuary 24, 2012 - 8:24 am

    Everything looks beautiful – but I too think the ‘menu’ page looks like your work. I think I’ll have to order the book, there is just too much in there that I want to make!ReplyCancel

  • Sondra LJanuary 24, 2012 - 8:25 am

    I agree I think it is the Menu itemReplyCancel

  • Denise TrottierJanuary 24, 2012 - 8:51 am

    Congrats on your publication, Becca, you certainly deserve it with all the elegant work you do…If I were to guess I would say the menu card was done by you…have a great day…

  • Lynne IngramJanuary 24, 2012 - 9:23 am

    Can’t wait to see what you have instore for us on Friday. Always looking for something new to try.ReplyCancel

  • Niki WinchellJanuary 24, 2012 - 9:44 am

    My guess is the Menu item, and possibly the Twins banner. All the photos look lovely, congrats on being published in such an inspiring magazine.ReplyCancel

  • Joan NashJanuary 24, 2012 - 10:37 am

    This is the first time I have left a comment although I have been loving your wonderful work for some time.What an inspiration you are!
    I went straight to Amazon and pre-ordered the book.It won’t reach me in England until April 2nd, but well worth the wait I’m sure!ReplyCancel

  • lisa jensenJanuary 24, 2012 - 11:04 am

    spellbinders and cupcakes the perfect combination!ReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithJanuary 24, 2012 - 11:14 am

    Congrats Becca,
    I am almost possitive I know which one it is!!! It’s the paper and the bows that give it away. Ha Ha. But, I am still oooohhhhing and aaaahhhhing over yesterdays post. So gorgeous.

  • sherisayJanuary 24, 2012 - 11:45 am

    My guess is that MENU is your work. I, too, would most certainly purchase a book of your work—in paper crafting you are tops. So inspiring! Each time I check out “Gallery” on your web page, “Coming Soon” is all that pops up. Are you going to do anything with that option? Many many congratulations on being published. I’m sure there will be many many more of your creations published in the future. Get ready girl, IT HAS BEGUN!ReplyCancel

  • DiannJanuary 24, 2012 - 11:57 am

    It’s the Menu and name plates. No doubt about it, right??
    I am drawn to your style. I love it, and you for sharing with us.ReplyCancel

  • conniecrafterJanuary 24, 2012 - 12:04 pm

    Congrats on more of your stuff being published!! Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to :)ReplyCancel

  • JessicaJanuary 24, 2012 - 12:15 pm

    So I went to check out the new mag. I clicked on the ‘see more’ link and I think your project is the last picure in that list. The ‘Mom” creations. I think I spied a lovely little Becca Bow. I could be wrong, but I haven’t seen the actual mag. Either way, I’ll bet it’s a fantastic project.ReplyCancel

  • Francie (Montreal)January 24, 2012 - 1:42 pm

    I too think your entry is the last one. It just seems to have B E C C A written all over it. It lovely. If it is not yours, then some imposter is copying your style and doing a great job at it. Congratulations! I love to see deserving people receive the recognition they deserve.ReplyCancel

  • Marie SellersJanuary 24, 2012 - 2:45 pm

    I think it is the pink and white card and what looks like a placecard. I really like the pink accordion flowers on top of the white lacey thingy.ReplyCancel

  • Kathy SJanuary 24, 2012 - 3:59 pm

    Wow this book looks amazing- and your project has to be the wedding set (shown last in the previews)- who wouldn’t recognize your beautiful work and gorgeous bows!!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • VailJanuary 24, 2012 - 4:49 pm

    Congratulations on being published. Your work is always gorgeous and my guess is the Menu set.ReplyCancel

  • FMJanuary 24, 2012 - 5:05 pm

    Congrats again for being published!!! What fun activities! I think that yours is the last one in the book. They look like your bows!!ReplyCancel

  • RufusJanuary 24, 2012 - 10:38 pm

    Have to agree with what most other folks have said, assuming that yours is in the preview pictures, I’m going with the last one, the menu and place setting set. I went and looked before looking at any of the comments! Congrats on being published, again!!

  • Julie GastelumJanuary 24, 2012 - 11:50 pm

    Congrats, it doesn’t surprise me though, your work is always gorgeous.ReplyCancel

  • EileenJanuary 25, 2012 - 5:34 am

    Congratulations from me too Becca, all your work is amazing and you deserve all the praise you get, so bask and enjoy! I have picked the Menu etc as being yours and that set would grace any table, well done!
    LOL EileenReplyCancel

  • SusanJanuary 26, 2012 - 12:40 am

    Well done Becca — more of the world needs to see the amazing things you create!ReplyCancel

  • Cindy MFebruary 1, 2012 - 6:48 pm

    Your lovely creations have to be on the last preview page! The items have your elegance and perfect detail touches. Congratulations!!! And I saw another of your Spellbinders creations on the back page of a CARDS magazine. I could tell it was yours before I spied your name is very small print. Your name shouldn’t be in small print….it should be in lights with your creation. : )ReplyCancel
