I think the stained glass cards are my favorite as well, though I love seeing all the non-card projects you make as well. Would love to win a pack of these. Thanks for all you do!


Don't know how I missed the stained glass designer cut cards as I check your blog every day. However, I think they are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing this technique.



Wow Patty its so hard to pick a favorite. I really like the halloween frame(one of my favorite holidays), and februarys post-I love the clean and simple look of this and that is a beautifully colored image, and the angels are just adorable. Oh and I love the photo of your cherry blossoms. Its so much fun to look back at the year. Have a fun and safe new year!!!!

Debbie Flattum

These are many of my favorites, too. I am very fond of the February and May projects! Thanks for sharing your talents with us. I have learned many tips and tricks from you.
Wishing you and your family a safe & Happy New Year!

Cindy Henry

I love those laser cut cards and bought some from the clearance rack ~ great deal !! I did your coloring technique and they came out so beautiful. Thank you for all your fabulous projects, techniques and gorgeous photos that you share. You are quite amazing and very talented.
Happy New Year !!

Mary Lou Foster

That stained glass technique is really pretty and I would like a pack of those cards. Love your blog!

Ginger G

I really loved your Paper Angels that you made. They are so beautiful. I also like the paper flower pin with the tulle. Thanksforthe chance to win. Happy New Year to your family!
Thanks for all your inspiration.


The Stained Glass cards are the colors and design..I will have to watch the video on those.
My favorite design is the angel. I ordered the dies, punches from you and away I went...could not find the 1/2 inch pearl beads, so my angels had smaller heads, but they turned out so pretty. I made them for family members and neighbors and will make more this year to give away and even put all the homemade angels on our tree.
Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful technique. Hugs, Dee

Peg Smith

Patty, I love your work! Thanks for the chance to win.


Hello Patty
I overlooked the designer cut cards in the catalog...but now that I see what can be done to transform them into a work or art..I love them!
I appreciate all that you share so freely with those of us who look to others for are a blessing to sooo many.
Have a wonderful and Blessed New Year!!

You were not my demonstrator when the cards came out and I missed all of this. Didn't see the cards or the technique. I really love them and would really like to win a pack of them. Thanks for all of your ideas.

Susan Saunders

Happy New Year, Patty. I love the stained glass look and would love to win a pack. So pretty . . . thanks for all you do.

Marilyn Brown

Wow, can't pick just one. They are all great. I just recently saved your pretty spring wreath. It's on my 'to do list'. I am really enjoying your MDS club. Happy New Year!

Barbara Diane


May is still my favorite - I LOVE the flower wreath! I have to add a new year's resolution to finish mine! Wishing you a wonderful new year Patty! I will be sending my first order of 2013 to you soon!

Amy Williams

I love the stained glass cards, the flower wreath and the square swaps! I love the idea of limiting yourself to a 1 inch square. LOVE your blog, and thanks for the chance to win!

Barbara Vogt

Happy New Year to you as well, Patty...and thanks for sharing all the wonders of 2012 with us. I loved those laser cut cards-wish they would still offer them!

Val W

Happy New Year Patty! I enjoy following your blog. I especially like that you include your beautiful flower pictures amongst the papercrafting entries. It's hard to have a favorite blog post. I liked your notepad in the stamp case, the flower pin, and the home decor projects. I like seeing your wonderful cards, but it's fun to see the products used in ways other than cards too. I'm looking forward to seeing what 2013 will bring.


Who can pick a favorite? Love all the inspiration that you provide to all of us on such a regular basis. Wish I could find the time to even a quarter of the projects you demo for us.

Would love to win a Stained Glass kit. My favorite post of 2012 is the Sep 3 Fancy Favor Box with the Paper Medallion and Tulle. I made 5 of those for New Year's favors (since I didn't get them done for Christmas).


Love the stained glass hearts and also the flower from August. Thanks for all the shares you do, love the blog
