Describe {Becca Feeken} in three words.

Passionate, Romantic, Gifter

What were some influences that helped shape the collection?

Graceful Borders and Graceful Frame Maker were influenced by the polish and professionalism of a hung frames and prints and the glamour of ornate decorative edgings that surround them.  From the wall to the page, I thought cards would be the perfect canvas for borders fashioned into frames – it’s the perfect way to highlight a sentiment or special memory.  I start so many of my cards with a border, so mixing and matching and having a spread of options from simple to complex was my starting place!

Vintage Elegance Love is in the details.  Vintage Elegance is made of the tiny to the larger pieces that put a special touch on cards, gifts and ensembles.  Ornate in design, Vintage Elegance lets you layer on love from the basic card to the addition of tags and pockets – it’s just the extras special little details that make handmade so heart-made.

Where is your favorite place to create or get inspired?

My favorite place to create and get inspired is right in my studio.  It’s a living bulletin board where I pin whatever my latest fancy might be.  I surround myself with the things I love and relish looking at them when I day dream.  I am a collector of things – boxes, fabric, lace, fiber, vintage, angels, hands, tapes, buttons, clips, ephemera . . . anything romantic, and most definitely anything that evokes a warm smile.  Just having these things to look at are an every day delight and inspiration.

What are your favorite, “must have” pieces in your upcoming collection?

Favorite piece from Graceful Borders and Graceful Framemaker is the frame maker die.  With that one die, I feel like I can conquer the world~ Favorite piece from Vintage Elegance is the Mini Booklet Die – I’ve dreamed of this one for a long time and haven’t run out of ideas on the next booklet to make, yet.
