All your projects are awesome however if I had to pick one I love the carousel purses.

I love your site and anything you do with designer paper! I love designer paper and buy too much of it. But your site gives me great ideas of what to do with it all. Thanks so much.

Julie  Phillips

I love the purses and the braclets and oh well, I love it all. You make the coolest stuff Patty.

Peggy Maier

You have so many great projects, but one I really loved making was J.B.'s birthday card (with the pockets for money). I have made several of these with different DPs & they are always a hit with the recipient!
Peggy Maier

Congratulations to such a milestone!
It is really hard to pick one favorite project, they are ALL wondrful!
One of my favorites is the 3 pocket note card holder, simple to make yet beautiful and have the WOW effect!
Such a great work, Patty!

Elizabeth Fortuna

We have to pick just one? The Build a Brad bracelet is one of my favorites and so is the 12 month card organizer. My favorite non-stamping post has to be "will the real David Cook step forward" That was so fun to see how much your son looks like David Cook!Congrats on your hits and thanks so much for your awesome talent and inspiration!

I am inspired by every post, love everything and think you are a marvelous woman whom I would love to meet someday. If I didn't live in Canada, I'd sign up under you, just to be around your infectious creation inspiration. (no pressure you know..grin). And, I'd also tell you to please, please, pretty please find a way to mail your offerings to someone like me over the border...wink. Blessings to you.

You do awsome work, Patty. Keep it up! I need to be inspired!

Jen Schudy

I love the card you posted on 7/24 for your convention swap. I love the colors. I've seen the idea before using the scallop punch and cutting to make it look like a daisy, but just haven't seen the color scheme I like the best. So, far I'm loving the New 'In Colors'.

Amy B

Which one is my favorite, are you kidding me, I LOVE them all! I love the altered books you make, the bracelets, your swaps, EVERYTHING. Oh and today is my birthday so I'm feelin' lucky!!!! Seriously though, you are one of my most favorite bloggers...

Melanie Hopes

Well really we have to choose just one. I love them all! I guess if I have to choose a favorite it is the Birthday organizer class that you did. I just love those!

But really I love the Pockets and Pieces class that you just had.


I love your blog. Congratulations on so many hits! I used the popsicle card featured on your website for both my daughters birthday parties. Everyone thought they were so cute. Thanks for a great idea!

Deanne Burton

I like this idea!!!

I have that scallop punch and love how you used it! I'm going to try that!!!

I have your blog in my google reader and thoroughly enjoy EVERYTHING about it!!!

Thanks so much for this blog!

Thanks for the opportunity to win this blog candy!

Just one? How can I pick just one when you have so many favorites to pick from? I think however that the bracelets are the BEST, as I've made a couple of them already!
Thanks for sharing such great ideas wtih us.

Lisa Rogers


Hi Patty! I check in daily to see what you have goin on! It's hard to pick a fave project that you've done. You've given me such inspiration. Since you are making me pick a fave I'd have to say the bracelets! I forwarded it to all my friends! What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing all your creative juices!!

Terri S

Seeing as I am a card-a-holic LOL...I love your card projects. I also love the faux sea glass bracelet project as well.. and then there are your books. Well as you can see it's just too hard to pick just one!!

I loved the 3-D pocket holder for cards, etc. I am dying to make a few of those for Christmas gifts. Congratulations on your amazing milestone!!!


Patty, I love your blog. I visit every day. I especially love that you use all Stampin Up products. It's hard to pick my favorite, but one that I really loved was the Special Delivery Baby Book. Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing all these great ideas!
Much continued success in your bloging!


Patty - I love your blog, but most especially have enjoyed the build a brad and the faux sea glass bracelets. They are the most unique thing I've seen on any blog and are such a great way to win over your jewerly hobbyists (like my sis-in-law) to stamping!! Thanks for sharing all your wonderful work!

Dani Dziama

Hi Patty!
I love everything about your blog! It's tough to choose one project! I do have to say though- that I absolutely LOVE the build a bracelet kit! I shared the idea with my daughter who promptly decided to have a slumber party to make them with her friends.
Congrats on your milestone! I enjoy reading your blog daily!

Hi Patty,
Picking a favorite...hmmm...that's like asking a child to pick out their favorite treat from a candy store!! From recent posts, I'd have to pick the faux sea glass bracelets or the bella rose CD album. You have created so many beautiful and inspiring projects it was really hard to pick JUST one! Congrats on 700,000 blog hits! It is a testament your your talent and creativity!! Have fun at convention!


That's like asking me to pick my favorite child! Not possible. If I have to narrow it down, lately I've loved all of your creations with the Bella Rose DSP. Thanks, Patty!


I really love the faux Sea Glass bracelets! They are really a WOW!!


Ann-Marie Duemling

Patty your site is great! I marked it as a favorite as soon as I saw it. Congrats on hitting 700,000!! I really like your sunflower swaps for Convention. Very cute!!


Yikes, pick one? I can't decide between 2: no, 3: Pockets and Pieces, Faux Seaglass bracelet, or the pull-out book (is that what it's called?).

Love your work!

Hiya Patti! Congrats on 700k hits! What a milestone! Well, I love all of the projects on your blog, it's hard to pick just one. I'd have to say one of my faves was your "Tie the Knot Simply Scrappin' Kit" where you showed how to make 36 4x4 cards - what a great use of a Simply Scrappin' Kit. SOOO cool! I also loved the 12 Pocket Card Organizer. Have a great time at Convention!!!

Debi Hepworth

I love all the projects on your site. But I would have to say anything you use with the Bind It All. I love those little books you come up with. I'm sure glad I don't design cute things like you do--I wouldn't have a need to read your blog :)
Thanks & keep posting inspirations for the rest of us!
