The silver lining is that I ended up with two cards! If you have any questions that I missed answering in the video please be sure to leave them for me below. I am happy to help if I can.

If you are already subscribed to me then welcome back and you will probably already know that I am on a self-imposed spending freeze for 2022 when it comes to craft supplies... which means that I have to "shop my stash" for the entire year!

If you watched the above video then you might already know what I am going to do for 2022! But here it is in more detail... Like many other crafters in 2020, I went nuts buying supplies during the pandemic and then this frenzy carried over into all of 2021! So many crafty sales, so much time sequestered at home... it was the perfect storm for shopping online. Recently I looked around my craft room and realized I have supplies I haven't opened or tried out yet! This is what made me decide to join in on the 2022 Crafty Spending Freeze. I need to use and e

I simple create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with other isn the paper crafting community. Today I wanted to share with you my video (and then some details further down in this blog) about creating a fun and colorful double layout for an 8.5" x 11" scrapbook. You won't need dies or a cutting machine to create this sort of layout because the components can be hand-cut! As I mentioned in the video, this scrapbook was inspired by Linda at Linda Creates on Instagram. Please be sure to give her some Instagram love and let her know I sent you over. Although my page is similar, her page is a 12" x 12" single layout page done in d

I simply create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community. Today I want to share a little video I created to show you how I made these fun Christmas shaker cards. You can create something similar... use supplies out of your stash, they are so fun to mail or receive.  I created these cards on a 4" x 6" card base (a piece of white cardstock cut 8" x 6" and then folded in half). I then created the shaker element separately using dies out of my stash. You can use whatever shape and size of die or punch you already own (or cut it out by hand). I happened to have some cute patterned papers to use, but

Welcome to  Paper Crafting With Rebecca ! I am so happy you stopped into my little blog. Today I am sharing with you some details about a paper crafting hop I was invited to be a part of. It is (as the title of this blog implies) the #TeamTinyCrescentCreationHop2 . This hop was sponsored by Crescent Creation so that means that there is a prize involved if you are following along... see my video for details about the prize and to see the two cards I created in live action... As I mentioned in the video, Neha (from Crescent Creation ), sent me (and the other hop participants) the digital stamps and the little bag of clay bit embellishments we used in our videos. There were so many cute images I ended up with two cards instead of only one (and I still didn't use ALL the images included in this little bundle). It was a fun hop to be a part of and you will want to check out what the other paper crafters created in this hashtag driven hop, too! So let's look at my cards and pull a f

I am not sponsored by (nor an affiliate of) any of the products used or companies mentioned in my blog or videos. I simply create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community. Today I am sharing a fun type of card called a "Pop-Up Box Card". I made the one in this video using a die, however, these can also be made without using a die. If you are interested in learning more about that technique, then leave me a comment below and I will create a video and blog entry showcasing that technique. This is a card I created for my Mother's birthday. She loves pink and blues and roses...  Now that you've watched the card come together, let's talk some specific measurements. As I mentioned in the video I like to make
