Hello and welcome to our blog hop today for the wonderful Becky James! Becky has stepped down from her role as Creative Designer at docrafts (sad face) but is now working freelance (happy face!) so we will get to see plenty more amazing projects from her.
Becky is one of my favourite craft designers (she knows this!) and I have long admired her style (in my whole two-and-a-bit years of crafting :p). Becky’s makes are a perfect blend of vintage and shabby chic styles, with lots of layers, textures and techniques incorporated but all brought together perfectly in a brilliant eye-catching design. Not only that but she also pulls off modern, bright and colourful, and clean and simple makes wonderfully too! Take a look at some of the projects on Becky’s blog or docrafts gallery and you’ll see just what I mean. We’re also lucky enough to benefit from her expertise in person as there are loads of craft tutorial videos on the docrafts site with Becky showing you how to create some of her epic makes.
It’s always a highlight coming across a project by Becky in Creativity magazine (though of course it’s full of other wonderfully talented designers too) as her style is just what I aspire too – I would love all of my projects to turn out looking as professional, complex and well thought out as hers (though this would of course require me actually spending a lot more time on them, having more patience for techniques, and generally being a better designer!).
I love Becky’s cards as there is always so much to look at and every little detail has been considered. It’s hard for me to pick a favourite as I love them all, but these two I really do adore:
Card perfection! I am in love with them (can you be in love with a card?! I think I am). They make me drool a bit. I think that’s a sign of a good card.
The vintage charm of the Victorian Christmas range reminds me of Becky’s style so I have made a card in her honour:
I used Becky’s stag card above as my inspiration and copied the layout and styling, adding different trims and embellishments – hope y’all like it ^_^
So finally I just want to say thank you to Becky for all of the inspiration she has given us so far. We are looking forward all her future makes!
Now continue your blog hop with the next blog on the list below ^_^ (I love Paula’s clean and simple style and brilliant stamping – you’re sure to enjoy her blog!).
