  Welcome to   Paper Crafting With Rebecca ! I am delighted you stopped into my crafty blog. I hope you find the information here fun, informative, and inspirational. I create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community. January is the month many make resolutions... but not me this year! I saw a quote from "unknown" author (that guy sure makes a lot of quotes 🤣) that said, "Every year you make a resolution to change yourself. This year make a resolution to be yourself." I really like that!! So I am simply "swimming along, trying to keep my head above water" and making an effort to live in the moment more this year.

I certainly hope you enjoyed a very happy holiday season and are ready to jump into 2024! I had a fun season, even relaxing at times (which is a first for me). As a grandmother I enjoy the fun of being with the children but don't have to do all the holiday "obligations" that parents try to keep up. I had my turn at that!

Of course I did have a lot of fun in my crafting studio this month, too! I made cards, tags, home decor, and tried to get my scrapbooking caught up... but didn't get the scrapbook layouts done that I had planned. I like to ha

September brings us those hints of autumn... changing leaves, cooler temperatures, comfort foods. I love this time of year despite knowing that things are about to get crazy busy! Let's look at some videos from September in case you missed these... I started the month with a look at a memory book I made for our granddaughter. I hope this video inspires you to make a memory book for a special person (including yourself), too! This was such a fun hop and of course there were prizes! You can still watch the video for card making ideas even though the hop is over. This was my final entry for #KCC11 and what a fun set of cards it was! A new quarter is about to start (#KCC12 October - December) so don&
