Debbie Z.

Your layout is so pretty. Simple and yet so elegant. The colors, flowers and cogs work so well together.

I live in WI and started paper crafting in 2005 so it's been quite a learning experience for me.


Such a gorgeous LO here, it´s really beautiful and I love, how many different dies, you´ve used on it here.
I live in Denmark, which is as North as you can come in Europe LOL, and it´s very cold and snowy here right now.
I´ve been doing some kind of crafting my entire life, as my mum was the type, who meant, that any decent girl should be able to do different kinds of crafting, so we were 4 girls and were all lied up to learn to knit and sew as younger, but I found my love for papercrafting about 8 years ago, after I unfortunately broke my back and had more pretty big operations, and had to find something to do, so started folding some pretty paper and then it all escalated quite a lot from that, so today I´m creating with paper in some kind every single day, and it´s a big part of my life. I´m just addicted to pretty papers, ribbons and Spellbinder dies he he.
Thanks sooo much for the chance to win all these awesome goodies here.

Beautiful LO!!!! Absolutely love Spellbinders, and the fact that they have so many cross promotional parteners that add so much to any projects. If that is your daughter, she is beautiful.

Donna Simonson

Love the use of the gear dies on cork paper! I live in Upstate New York and have been papercrafting for about 15 years. I mostly do cards and stamping and love the Spellbinders Dies to really add pizzaz to my projects. Thanks for sharing your talent and inspiration. Great selection of yummy items in your Blog Candy for the lucky winner!

Beverly Perdue

Hi Debbie, I live in Greensboro, North Carolina and I started scrapbooking about 7 years ago, but now I love cardmaking. I use spellbinders on almost every card. The frame you used on your layout is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing.


Your layout is beautiful! Who knoew cogs could be feminine? I live in Pa and I started out scrapbooking about 10 years ago. Then I went into cardmaking. Now I'm starting Project life to get my pics in a book!

Lynne Ingram

Lovely layout. I have been doing papercrafts for about 10 years, but more intensly since I retired and moved to DE 5 years ago,. I don't do scrapbooking but make cards, boxes, flowers, etc. I have made many friends in this hobby of ours and of course, it keeps my brain inquisitive and creative. Love Spellbinders and use their products nearly every time I create.

JoAnn B.

Your layout is so pretty. Love the colors and all the design elements, especially the frame behind the photo.
I live in Central Florida and have done crafting of some kind most of my life. I started stamping and scrapbooking in 1998 and have been hooked ever since.


Debbie, it's nice to get to see all of the great projects from the Spellbinders DT! I love my dies & use them all of them time! I live in Western Montana and with winter being what it has this year, have had plenty of crafting time! I started scrapbooking in 1998 and get into card making shortly after that. While I still do both, I am making more cards lately! I love blog hops as you get so much inspiration from great designers and some some goodies. I also get to meet some really great people!!! Thanks for sharing your talent!!!

Lori Reinholz

I love your page. The flowers are so beautiful as is the main subject. I also love the way you diplayed the cogs dies. I wasn't very anxious to get them, because I had not seen them used in a way that pleased my artistic pallette. Thank you bunches for sharing. Great Blog Candy too! Hugs Lori


I am 69 years old and I live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I have been paper crafting for about 2 1/2 - 3 years and I love it. I love Spellbinders products and use them quite often. I do not have a blog.

Yvonne Rijk

Love the lay-out you've made. I am Yvonne, live in the Netherlands and I'm a papercrafter since 5 years. It all started with lay-outs but at this moment I only make cards. I do'nt now why because I love to see al the beautiful lay outs. I think its time for me to make also a lay-out. When I started papercrafting I had not so many stuff as I have know. So many beautiful spelbinders and other stuff to make cards and lay-outs.

Love from the Netherlands by Yvonne

Pat Barger

Hi Darcie! I am a 65 year old mother of two and grandmother of two. I started crafting when I was just a little girl. My mom taught me to knit, and that's all it took to get me started. I love to knit, crochet, cross stitch, and make cards! Making cards has become my passion. I love to do all kinds of techniques on cards, but paper embroidery is my favorite. Love the look of hand stitching of a card. My mom just recently passed away, and when I went through all of her personal things, I found every one of the cards that I had made her through the years. It was wonderful to look at the cards, and remember the wonderful times we had together. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Pat Barger

I am so embarrassed, Debbie. I got my names confused and said Darcie, instead of Debbie. Guess I'm showing one of my 65 year old senior moments! Sorry.

Janet Mack

Hi, I live in S. Florida and I have been doing some kind of craft since I was big enough to hold a needle. I started making cards about 15 years ago and I have a large collection of SB dies that I love to use. My hubs always asks why I need so many shapes. He does't get it! You just do.

Heather G

Great Inspiration! I live in Central FL, originally from MI. Been crafting my whole life and teaching crafts for about 35 years. I teach at least 2 paper/card classes a month in our community (about 24 ladies at a time, whew!!). And I'm President of the local Craft Club. I love it and can't get enough. I can get lost for hours in my Craft's my therapy in a way :) Thank you for sharing some of your's a great selection.

kim k

I found your blog today because of the Spellbinder's hop. Your ideas are great and I will be back to visit again. Thanks for the chance to win some candy. I'm drooling.


what a cute layout. way to make usually masculine cogs into feminine embellies. i'm in NC. I started trying out scrapbooking. I made lots of pages in classes. that was 10 years ago and I still haven't put a pic in them yet. one of the classes had some cards so that's when I really got into it. don't get me wrong, I have some scrapbook pages done. just all of the ones I took in class I want to put just the right picture into. i'm not sure that the picture has even been taken yet! insert smile. when I first saw spellbinders they really spoke to me. I asked for some for Christmas 5 years ago. I called a woman that had a retreat with me and asked her all kinds of ?'s. she laughed and said you have the spellbinders but no machine. i said that's why i called you. i want to find out the merits of each of the ones out there. after she finished having a good belly laugh, she proceeded to explain most of them to me. I decided on a big kick since i had a big coupon. that was before the grand caliber came out. i think i would have gotten that, because of the larger size. my next venture in card making will be to improve my coloring skills. this may prove to be the hardest task of all. i have purchased some alcohol markers and am beginning that journey. wish me luck... thanks for offering the wonderful blog cardy and good luck to all!

Katherine Lawson

Hi Allison, this is the first time I have seen your blog. You have some really lovely cards! I didn't become a follower, but I put you in my sidebar so I will remember to visit you every day. (I'm not good at my following list, I'm better at visiting from my sidebar).

I've been crafting my whole life, including paper crafting, and my grand daughter appears to be following in my footsteps, She started crafting even before she started school too! I can't remember a time when I could just sit, even in front of a movie. I always have to be making something.

I live on a tiny island in eastern Maine. While it's not easy to get supplies here, it is a place where you have a lot of time to craft!

Shari M

well, my comment went walk about, so here we go again.
Came from Theresa Momber's post as am a follower of hers.
Do not scrap, but love what you did here.

When having to retire, decided this was what was wanted to do. Have done just about every hobby out there over the years, but always as a child loved to colour and cut, even though told not doing it right. That all comes back into play now, and am loving it. Using dies and alcohol markers are the best. Started in late 2010, with a leave if you want to say that for about 10 months last year, but now back, loving it even more, and having fun. Living in Ontario, Canada, it is also something to do on days when looking out the window tells you to stay in. :)
Thanks for the opportunity, and will be back

Mary Schmidt

I live south of Charlotte, NC. I have have rubber stamps since forever, 30 some year. I really got into papercrafting about 16 years ago. When I promised myself that I wasn't going to go crazy with buying a lot of supplies for it. HA! You should see my craft room. I can get lost in there. I love spellbinders. They keep coming out with more elaborate dies that I "have to have". Would love to win your blog candy. TFS!

Wonderful "stuff" to win & wonderfu layout! I live in AZ in the winter & IL in the summer. I have been papercrafting since I was in high school, when I made my 1st scrapbook. Lately I have started making cards too. My greatest passion is 3D paper crafting & making my own books.

Cindy B

Great art! Love checking out the Gallery and seeing all of the art created. I recently used my Spellbinders to create 33 book plates for my grandson's 2nd birthday party. They love it. I'm in FL and have been scrapbooking, making books, postcards, cards, some altered art, papercrafting, etc since 2004 when a friend got me hooked. Now I love scrapbooking my grandson and make mini pages on cards for his great grammy who loves getting pictures of him plus all the other stuff and taking a class when I can.


Great layout! I live in Ohio and have been papercrafting since 2003, mostly cards, but beginning to scrapbook.


Great Layout & fun blog hop! I live in Canada and have been papercrafting for about 12 years. I am a card maker, rubber stamper, paper hoarder (blush) and love all things paper related. I love adding ribbon, flowers and bling too! I guess I love it all! Thanks so much.


Hi Debbie,

I am 55 yrs. old and live in La Crosse, WI. I've been making cards for over 30 years. I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago. I love Spellbinder dies and get a lot of my inspiration from following the blogs of the Spellbinder design team. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas.

Susie Bentz

Hey Debbie! I love to see Spellbinders Dies being used for layouts as I consider myself to be a scrapbooker more than a cardmaker. I love all the different materials you used on this!
Hmmm...about me...I have been crafting forever and started scrapbooking about 6 years ago. I take way too many pictures to ever be "caught up" and I am NOT a chronological scrapper. Project Life is a brilliant idea...for other people! I like to try techniques and I am a tool junkie. I like to share what I learn which is why I used to teach - too busy with kids/life to teach right now. I am on a few DT's and one day I hope to be a Nestie Bestie!! ;)


I live in Harper's Ferry WV and starting scrapebooking about a year ago. My time to relax and remember things in the past. What great memories!!! I over your layout. BEAUTIFUL. THANK YOU FOR SHARING AND SOME GREAT IDEAS.

Gloria M. Brown

Hi, Love the layout. I have been "checking in" on your website for a while now. Love it.
I am a 53 wife and mother. Living in Charles Town, West Virginia, I have been paper crafter for about 6 years. I am always interested in seeing what others create. My email is

I, too, like the gears on your card. Very nice. Thank you for the chance to win some mighty nice blog candy. That is very generous of you! I see others have shared a tad of their background in this craft so here is mine. I have been paper crafting/cards for about 40 years with my little daughters now all grown up. Loving every minute of it I love to get new ideas from you great gals that share yours. Keep creating!

Lesley Thomas

Beautiful card, and great use of the cogs (which I own too). Would love to win your candy, I've been card crafting for about a year and I dread to think what I've spent on it during that time, but I'm loving every minute. Before I found card, I was a Lacemaker and quilter, both of which have taken a back seat while I play with card.

Roseann Boyle

Hi Debbie, Very nice layout, I have not used my spellbinders on scrapbook pages yet but plan too. I've been a scrapbooker and card maker since 1999, I started with my wedding album. I live in Oxford, MI with my wonderful husband and we have eleven grandchildren. I enjoy checking out your blog on a regular basis, thanks for all the great ideas. If I'm lucky enough to win the blog candy my email is Happy Easter!


Absolutely beautiful Debbie! Just found you and love what you do. Live in Canada - love all things paper.
Started stamping years ago; folks like you are a real blessing with all your ideas and creativity.
Thanks for the chance to win and keep up the great work.
