What a great overview of the year; so many really beautiful projects !!
I occasionally stopped by your blog (thanks to other blog hops); but I subscribed now with great pleasure. I'm looking forward to receive your posts regularly !
What a GENEROUS giveaway; good luck to all of us.
I'd like to learn some new craft-making techniques; maybe in combination with some calligraphy or handlettering.
Happy, healthy, creative 2018 from Belgium.

My resolution is to go out of my comfort zone more. I started embossing and using gilding flakes this year and I want to do more in 2018:

I loved looking at some of your cards from 2017!! My crafty resolution is to be send out cards on time this year. I know my family and friends enjoy getting handmade cards from me but let's be honest....there is nothing worse than getting a card a week or more after the big day!! Thank you for the chance to win such wonderful goodies. Happy New Year!

Thanks for the continued inspiration and the opportunity to win. My crafty resolution is to tidy my office/craft room so that it is inviting and inspirational so that I want to craft more. Hope you have a fantastic 2018!

Wow, such a fabulous prize! I'm a new follower to the blog but have followed you on YouTube for a while :) My crafty resolution is to include more hand-drawn elements (like backgrounds) on my cards, and to get them out there more. Thanks for the chance to win, and Happy New Year :)

Happy New Year! One of my crafty resolutions is to use up the pieces and parts I've accumulated.

Hi Nichol,

I love all your creative projects from 2017 and I am looking forward to seeing what you create in 2018.

My crafting resolution is to use up my card stock and DSP before buying anymore, but that leaves more money to buy stamps and dies.

What a generous gift you are giving us crafters as a prize.

Happy 2018! :O)

Wow!!! looking over your projects in the last year and I know those were only a few and some of your favourites. I am not sure how you were able to just pick a few. This was my first year fallowing you on u tube and let’s just say you are amazingly talented. I honestly can’t think of anything I did not like. Every time there was a notice of a new post I would get really excited, and couldn’t hardly wait for all the inspiration. One little thing I copied this year from you is how you made your tags for on your gifts the die set was from Lawn Fawn it was a set of ornaments, it worked like a charm. I would like to thank you very much it was a great hit, everyone was saving their ornaments and hanging them on their tree. My craft resolution this year is to start to prepare and to be organized for next Christmas. My plan is every month to come up with 2-3 card fronts that can be mass produced half dozen to a dozen times, so that when it comes to Christmas time I have lots of cards made to be put together in boxes as gifts for my care givers such my nurses, doctors, therapists and social worker. The past month and a half with my mom’s help I believe we made almost a100 cards. It was crazy I suffer from Lyme Disease which all that stress made me really sick but somehow I kept on pushing and got it all done. I swear never will I ever do that again. Mom said to me if I ever get a bright idea like that again to maybe rethink it. Do you ever have trouble in knowing when to stop or maybe rethinking a plan because it might be to grand? Do you have any tips that can help and keep someone organized, also do you have any tips to know like warning signs when a project might be to grand? I guess probably those kinds of things come with years of crafting on a grand scale. I’ve just recently started to do more projects for others and I am not to sure how to pace myself. Well all of this is not because of the great prize you are generously giving away, but I would like to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work you do and all the kindness and inspiration you give is really appreciated. I would also like to wish you and your family a very HAPPY, HEALTHY, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR and I cannot wait for what you will have for all of your followers in 2018. Please take care, Kari

I have enjoyed seeing your work on various blogs and now look forward to seeing it in my inbox on a regular basis!

Isabel Z

My goals for this year is to organize my crafting area and to create at least 10 cards a month.

Becca Yahrling

Your cards always amaze me. Love the pop up boxes and would love to make some of those myself. Who wouldn't love to receive one of those fun cards?!
My crafty resolution is to finish the inside of my cards as well as the matching envelope at the same time I make the card ... rather than waiting until I give the card away.
Thanks for the AWEsome giveaway and hope you have a fabulous 2018!

Denise C.

My 2018 resolution is to organize my craft space and learn to use copic markers. Thank you for all your inspiration....love your videos!!

Happy New Year, Nichol! I have been a long-time subscriber of your blog (via Feedly), but just signed up for your formal subscription service. My all-time favorite card of yours is the January faux stained glass heart - I just adored that card and used the technique several times on cards over 2017. Thank you for your detailed videos and instructions, they are always super helpful!

My crafty goal for 2018 is simply to create (and mail cards)!

Kathy Zachmann
