The photo above are a couple of graduation cards using a kit from  Cards By Kendra  . There are so many perks to becoming one of her patrons! May definitely kept me hopping! I had some medical issues to deal with that have hindered me a bit... namely losing clear vision in my right eye.  This photo is of my eye! Taken from the perspective of retro illumination. There is nuclear sclerosis (NS) and a posterior subcapsular cataract (PSC).  The most visually impactful is the PSC cataract.

"PSC is the least prevalent o

I create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community. The layout photo above is an  8-1/2" x 11" scrapbook layout I created using a variety of goodies out of my stash. I've been busy trying to catch up on everything since returning from my trip out west. This includes scrapbook layouts, my commitments as a design team member for Kendra's Card Challenge, sending out birthday cards, etc. Here are my three April videos, and a few pictures, that highlight my April! Did you take a vacation this year yet? Let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear about where you went and your vacation experiences.

  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. Of course a big part of my joy in this world is paper crafting! Here are a few of the fun things that happened in January in case you missed them! I started the year as a participant in the KCC13 Giveaway Hop. I love being on the KCC Design Team and the hops are always a fu

I create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community. 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! We grandparents simply enjoy spoiling and playing with the little ones while they show us what Santa has brought them. The new tent was a hit! 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

I create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community. Did you have a happy October? I did!

We ate so much yummy food and had a lovely time. Aside from our trip I got a lot of really fun paper crafting done this month (most of it related to my role as a Design Team member for Kendra's Card Challenge 12!

I create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community. 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&

Our granddaughter came to spend the week with us and what a busy delightful week it was!! One of the fun things we did was make a video.. I also participated in an Altenew Hop showcasing the new Build-A-Garden collection. There were so many pretty cards and techniques demonstrated in this Hop.  Of course I entered a set of cards for August into Kendra's Card Challenge, too. Here is a video showing the cards. I hope this video inspires you to enter the challenge, there is
