patricia kiser

Hi i'm from Ohio and I do just about any craft --wood- paper -just love to make things


Thanks for providing the video...without it I wouldn't have a ghost of a chance of reproducing that fabulous project. Happy New Year!


Oops...forgot to tell you where I'm from. British Columbia, Canada. I do card-making exclusively, although many of my friends are branching out into other paper crafts. I love making cards!


Happy New Year! Love the hop and such generous gifts! I love to scrapbook and make cards

Amy C.

I've been crafting for about 16 years! I started with scrapbooking which has turned into card making. I've just recently discovered all the wonderful resources on the web...including blogs like yours! Happy New Year!

Angela Walters

Hello! I started as a scrapbooker and then moved over mainly to stamps about 10 years ago. I have a blog named after my sweet wiener dog, Frankfurter. I find creating and crafting relieves stress as I wait for an upcoming back surgery, so I make time for it, even if it's painful sometimes. I hope you have a wonderful New Year!

Kris B

I love making cards and I do some scrap booking. I think I just like the smaller scale when making cards, not as intimidating as a big 12x12!! Thanks so much for sharing with us throughout the year and for being part of this amazing hop!

Lisa H

That is a beautiful card Debbie! I live in Northern California and have 2 busy boys. I have been making mainly cards and altered art the past few years and my scrapbooks have been languishing. ;-) I need to get some of that going again.

Linda Osterwise

Card making and making Lampwork beads (melting glass in a torch) are my primary interests - I loose time when I'm working on either. Thank you for your inspiration. Have a healthy, happy and creative 2015.

beatrice lawson

Wow, that prize looks amazing, fingers crossed and thank you! Have a great 2015! I love all your projects on the Craft Hoarders Anon blog:-) you rock every challenge.
I mostly scrap 12"12" pages but slowly making my way to cards, and seem to have a split personality alternating between CAS and a mixed media messy approach... I live in cold Ontario and am thrilled to be on two challenge design teams this year, so keeping busy!!

Jan Westcott

Great card. Thanks for sharing.


Holy cow! Your giveaway is so generous! I absolutely love love love stamping. I usually make cards but will get in the scrapbooking mode sometimes. I also love being a mom to my 6 beautiful children and wife to my hubby. I'm from freezing Utah! I'm happy to have come across your blog through this hop. It's awesome!


Happy New year, Debbie! I am primarily a card maker and a mixed media enthusiast ;) I like to try new things and sometimes they stay and other they go. This new year I really want to start filming video tutorials and have more interaction with my followers.
Thanks for the chance to win the amazing prize!!

Lynn Petersen

Love all your cards! I'm happy I found you on the Blog hop, now following you on Pinterest! :) All the beautiful cards I could create with these prizes! :)Thank you for the chance to win these awesome prizes!

Jenelle Reyes

I am a card maker...still new at it but getting better at it one card at a time! :) I also love mixed media art and plan to start an art journal this year! I love the card you made...all the wonderful layers from the flowers to the burlap and everything in between! I am in Spokane Valley, Washington and it snowed today...yay! Thank you for the chance to win some amazing crafty goodness! Happy 2015!!

Barb Z

I am both a cardmaker and a scrapbooker. I live in Skokie, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, and would not trade places with anybody. I love it here. Have been a crafter for many years.....doing cross stitching, embroidery, and my one passion was that I am an egger. Decorating all types of eggs, ostrich, rhea, emu, hen, duck, pheasant, etc. But since scrapping, I haven't done much of anything else. Too much to scrap and maybe not enough time left to complete what I want! Love your video!

Jane Stokes

Hi there Debbie - WOW What gorgeous designs. Love what you have been doing. I enjoy many kinds of crafting from card making to scrapbooking and knitting to pottery. Wish I sometimes had the harry potter time stopper watch though as there are not enough minutes in the day. I live in the east of england near to the broads and the sea so am very lucky. Take care and enjoy your life.


I live in 'beautiful one day, perfect the next' Queensland Australia. Still adjusting to Christmas in summer but don't miss USA winters. I like paper craft, mostly card making. I also crochet, knit and cross stitch or should say I used to. I enjoy your blog via bloglovin.

janet bagnall

Happy new year Debbie. I love your card - the burlap behind the image is great. I believe I am a simple creator and am hoping to step out of that box this year :) I live in Gilbert South Carolina which is near columbia and love it :)

Heather Thompson

What a beautiful card, I love it, I just recently stated making more cards and have fallen in love with it. I started scrapbooking/paper crafting when my daughter was born in 2008 and now she's just as crazy as I am with crafting. Happy New year to you and look forward to 2015

I make cards and other things to sell at a local craft market once a month in Australia. The money I make helps to justify the amount I spend on this great hobby. Thanks for clearing out your craft stash and giving us the opportunity to win.


Hello my friend! I just love that card! The burlap, the vintage yummy! I've really enjoyed being on TWO design teams with you this past year. Your work is so inspiring...and your sweet spirit is uplifting. I also love your wonderful sense of humor! I'm really looking forward to sharing 2015 with you and your amazing talent! Hugs!

Hi I live in Wisconsin and love making greeting cards. I have probably been making them for 15 or more years now but there is so much more inspiration now with the internet sites.


I love making cards some I give away for tricky trays for church and a rescue for cats. I live in nj. Thanks for chance to to win.


I'm new to your blog and now a follower on YouTube and bloglovin. Your super talented and I'm so motivated to try, I use that word loosely and use some of your ideas. I'm sure they won't come as beautiful as your. Love this blog hop, not just for the fab giveaways but all the new blogs I'm finding along the way. Lots of great inspiration. Thanks for sharing and the chance to win.

Heather Bridson

Wow, what an amazing prize, and I love your work! I live in northern Michigan. I just started stamping and cardmaking in March of 2014, so I have a lot to learn yet. Thanks for sharing your work, and thanks for the great giveaway!!!

Gretchen Wilson

Happy New Year Debbie, love your project and as you know I'm from Indiana, not far from you, lol but we can meet up like we did this fall which was a blast. I love die cutting and making cards and love to make my own flowers. I really love all forms of paper crafting and really must get busy on the scrapbooking that is lagging behind. I am sorting pictures from 100 plus years into boxes so I know where they are instead of just stuck in albums in random order and I must go through the CD's that have picture stored on them and see what's what. So this year will be busy and with a wedding in October in Atlanta will even bring more business. I am please to be able to have another daughter in law. She met the rest of the family, 2 brothers, SIL and my 2 grandsons.
Thanks for sharing this awesome prize, this has been so much fun. I have never heard of Tonic Studio Die, something for me to check out.

Hugs and God Bless,



Beautiful work! Thank you for sharing a little bit of you with all of us ♥ I'm a lover of crafts (though many of what I love, I'm not very good at :D). I live in Ohio with a wonderful husband, son, and many furkids. Wish I had more time to craft as much as I'd like, but the time I do have is happily given to my crafting. Everything from sewing to cards and other papercrafts and woodworking. I love it all!

Happy and blessed new year to you and yours! ♥ Thank you for being a part of this hop.


Hi!!!!you are very talented...i make cards...your cards and blog are great!!!!

Brande @ Scrapstorian

Wow, what a give away prize! I am a old school style scrapbooker who loves loves loves to journal! I love in beautiful British Columbia. In 2015 I have crafty plans to start sewing in my paper projects and canvas mixed media!

barb macaskill

Thank you for the awesome tutorial! Your card is beautiful! I love creating cards, altering what others may consider trash and making it beautiful and useful again. Mixed media has become another passion of mine this year. Using dies and fussy cutting are two of my favorite things to do. Stamping and watercoloring are right up there also! Some of my favorite projects have been made using stencils and embossing pastes and then putting lots of flowers, lace, glitter and other sparkly things on them before I call them done.
I am housebound and home alone most of the time so creating is my outlet for loneliness and stress relief. Since I really started creating my blood pressure has gone down enough to get off my medications! My doctor was very surprised because it was so high even on the meds and when I told him it was because of crafting he told me he was going to recommend it to others! Too bad my insurance company wouldn't pay for my supplies! LOL
Thanks for the chance to win some amazing goodies to keep me creating!


Happy New Year. I like cards and how happy I can make people with them. Also love sewing so it just depends upon what mood I'm in as to which one wins on a particular day.

Michele Smith

Holy smokes! What a prize package! So many wonderful products in there! I'm checking in from New Albany, MS - love scrapbooking but making cards has been my passion for the past couple of years. Still "in training" and have lots to learn but I am having so much fun! Thank you for sharing your creativity! I hope 2015 is extra sweet to you :-)

Christine M

Crafting in IL USA I have a bit of crafters ADD. card making, quilting, craft sewing, scrapbook, glass etching, etc...... Sometimes I just work myself into a headache with too many projects going on. Love your work.

Margaret B.

Hi Debbie. I love everything crafty - cards, scrapbooking, sewing, crochet, and have been teaching myself to knit. This love of making things was passed to me by my Mom and I am passing it down to my granddaughter. I live in Charlotte, NC and have been following your blog for quite awhile. Thanks for the chance to win an awesome prize!


Hi Debbie: I'm from a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada. I've been a crafter most of my adult life (stained glass, quilts, home sewing, knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, cross-stitching; you name, I've tried it!) Went to a card making class with a friend about 10 years ago and got hooked. I like that you can make someone happy with a handmade card! My favourite techniques are those involving distress inks, and embossing. I am slowly venturing into mixed media but find it is more time consuming than doing a card.

This is the first time I've played along with this blog hop and I find it very inspiring seeing everyone's work!

Thanks so much for the chance to win your very generous give-away and happy crafting in 2015.

Debbie McKelvey

Hello I'm An'Jenic but most know me as AJ from AJ Scrapbooking & Cards. I recently moved from Mississippi to Virginia right after Christmas. I started out scrapbooking and later found card making which was 5 years ago. I later learned that I like to make different things. Soon after I start making craft videos. Which I'm loving. I love watching my crafty friends do videos and thought maybe they would love to see me and so now I do it all. Happy 2015!!


Wonderful work! I live in a suburb of Salt Lake City. I love to make cards when I'm not teaching 3rd graders!
Happy New Year!, Debbie!

I love your cards! I started scrapbooking 6 years after some convincing from my friends, and I got addicted to it very quickly. Then 3 years ago, I discovered card making and was hooked instantly. As you can tell, I am a pushover when it comes to crafting. I also crochet and sew, but I don't have time to do much of either. That's why I fell in love with cardmaking, as you can achieve results in as little as 10 minutes!
Thank you for the chance at winning your incredible giveaway package. Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best of 2015 :)

Happy Blessings in the New Year.
