Spellbinders Designer Days Feature (Day 7) Becca Feeken

Designer Days with Becca Feeken, Countdown to Creativation

We are counting down the days to Creativation 2017 (Craft & Hobby Assoc. Trade Show) here in Phoenix, Arizona! Not everyone can make the event so why not bring some of it to you. This week, we are featuring Designer Days to introduce our licensed designers for 2017 – some whom you know and some who are new, so stay tuned! Today is the last day of our Designer Days feature and we are thrilled to continue our relationship into 2017 with licensed designer, Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace!

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.

  26. Becca’s was the very first blog I ever followed, this led to me to Spellbinders dies and my collection has grown ever since. Becca has the most elegant style of anyone out there and each one of her cards are truly a work of art. The inspiration I get from her blog draws me into my craftroom most days and whenever I lose my mojo, I have a look through all of her lovely work and always find something to kickstart my mojo again.

    1. Annie, wow, that makes me smile. It’s people like you that make me want to create! Thank you so much for your kind words – I’m sending you a hug!!

  27. Becca’s cards have such wonderful inspirational messages in them. God knows I need His spirit with me as i try to overcome a few bumps in my road. Thank you for giving me faith in it’s pursuit with your cards.

    1. Diane, the inspirational messages are good for me too, they remind me to stay positive and that it’s all gonna work out. Saying a prayer about the bumps you’re experiencing. Keep at it, you’ll overcome and find that there was a reason your journey took you over those bumps. Sending hugs!!
