« A Gingerbread House Card! | Main | Season's of Giving Prize Winner! »

December 31, 2017



I always love seeing your beautiful cards and that purple and white step card is gorgeous!! I live in Northern California and love to stamp and make cards. I began as a scrapbooker but found it difficult to work around photos for my layouts so ended up going with cards and tags instead. It's an easy way to try new techniques without having to commit to a lot of time. Thanks for your giveaway, and Happy 2018!

Debbie Rumpza

Hello from Washington State! I love paper crafting, crochet, horses, yorkies and my sweet grand babies! Happy New Year to you!

Lorraine Turner

Hi Debbie,

Firstly can I say what a generous lady you are with the 'Give-away' prize. I looked at it and immediately thought I would love those Spectrum Noir Glitter pens. The resources there would definitely make my craft stash more substantial. I am a new crafter who started crafting after leaving work due to ill-health. I am suffering from terminal secondary breast cancer and I craft to keep me busy and I am often bed bound so crafting is a way of helping me through the 'darker days'. I have not been doing so well recently and in a few days I will be starting a stronger Chemotherapy regime, so crafting will help me through this too. I live in the UK with my husband, my daughter and son are grown up and live with their partners. I have a gorgeous 17 month old grandson called Brooklyn who keeps me fighting day after day. I recently made over 100 Christmas cards for the hospice I attend on a Monday to say thank you for all they do for me. So this year I made a New Year's Resolution to use up all the card stock and DSP I currently have before purchasing any more, so I will have to be more creative with what I have. But also to make as many cards as possible for charities throughout the year. Sorry I have gone on a bit but I have gained a love for crafting and I want to gain as much experience as possible to develop my skills in different techniques; especially in ways of creating different backgrounds. Happy 2018! :O)

Margaret B.

Hi Debbie,
Thanks for the chance to win such an awesome prize! I am from Charlotte, NC and started crafting as a child by sewing Barbie doll clothes by hand and continued to explore other crafty adventures as I grew up. Of course I had a great teacher by following my Mom's example who excelled in all areas of craftiness. So needless to say I dabble in everything from crochet, sewing, quilt making, painting but primarily focus on scrapbooking and card making. And I am passing on my love of crafts to my grandchildren who love to come to Mimi's to make something.

Verna Angerhofer

I live in South Dakota and started working with stamping 20 years ago shortly after my hubby had a heart attack, we quit the dairy farm work and went to grain farming,. We also both quit smoking. I took up the habit of stamping instead and it is a much healthier one for sure. I do mostly CAS designs but am hoping to branch out a bit into more interactive and fancy fold designs if I can manage it. And, I have been gradually learning to use more dies in my work. I find my card making is very therapeutic for me and helps me forget my old age arthritis issues. And, I am a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother. By the way, thanks for the chance to win the prize and I hope you have a wonderful 2018.

(but haven't done much of it since I got into
paper crafting). I love to create and share
my finished pieces with friends and family.
thanks for being so generous.

Kaylyn VanHarn

Card making is a family affair for me. Once a month my aunt, cousin, mother and I get together for weekend of creativity. This is a wonderful way for me to catch up with the family since I live 100 miles from my hometown. We each have our own style so it is always fun. I sell my cards at one small craft show a year and love the camaraderie of the fellow crafters. I'll give you a hint where I live. It is the only state shaped like a winter apparel. :)


I’m a hand-stamped greeting card crafter from south central Kentucky. Thank you for sharing!

I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada
My New Years crafty goal is to learn one new technique per month and to share this in my monthly ‘Build Your Stash’ class, where I encourage others to share their new ideas. I do this card making class for all the events in our lives. We have all created a beautiful ‘box’ where we store our ‘Stash’ cards so that they are easy to find when an event comes up. I love being surrounded by my friends and family and helping each of them to keep their passion for paper crafting alive in their hearts!
