Creating Pre-K Sticker Books

Image
Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca ! I am so happy you stopped into my little blog. I hope you find the information here fun, informative, and inspirational. I am not selling anything. 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. I have an amazing little pre-schooler in my life (my granddaughter). We have so much fun crafting together. She also likes stickers! The problem with stickers is where do you stick them once you get them? There is always the option of sticking them on your cheek or forehead (we've done that), or on your Daddy's shirt (yup, she's done that), but what if you want to keep the sticker and look at it later? After all, adults generally frown if the stickers are stuck to the living room walls. Well, after some consideration about this I decided she shou

A Spooky Halloween Card

Image
Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! I am so pleased and humbled that you have stopped in today, thank you!  Today I wanted to share a fun but spooky Halloween card I designed. I am using supplies found in my stash and providing this video/blog as inspiration for you to do the same. So watch this little video for a general design boost and then pull out the goodies in your stash and get busy having fun! Of course, since we probably aren't using the same supplies it won't do me much good to give you the specific measurements that I used... but in general... the card base was made with a piece of white cardstock cut to 8.5" x 5.5" and then folded in half to create a card that is 4.25" x 5.5". The rest of the card was simply built to fit onto that card base. I chose gray, black, and white as the color theme to give the card that "spooky" feel. Thank you for joining me today and, as usual, I am not sponsored by (nor an affiliate of) any of the prod

Challenge YOUrself #93 - A Friend's Challenge

Image
Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! I appreciate you taking time to pop in for this little visit. Today's blog entry is all about a scrapbook page I am putting up for consideration in a "Challenge YOUrself" challenge. This is #93 and it is titled "A Friends Challenge!" To learn more click on the link below: Challenge YOUrself #93 I have some friends who are so very very dear to me, but when you ask me "who is your best friend" my husband is the first person who pops into my head! He has stuck with me through "thick and thin", listens to (and tries to fulfill) my dreams, has seen me at my best and my worst... but still stays by my side. We laugh together, cry together, and simply love spending time together! That is why I chose him as my "friend" to base this page on. As for the layout of my page... I "scrap lifted" the layout from a page I saw by @donnaespiritu25 on Instagram. I love the colorful happiness that is her

Color Dare #459 - Triple Play

Image
Hello! Welcome to my Paper Crafting With Rebecca blog! I hope you find something here you enjoy and something that inspires you today! It has been a little bit since I've joined into a Color Dare Challenge so I thought I would jump into one today. I found this Color Dare to be a fun one (and a challenge) because I like using lots of colors when I create but this one limited me to only three basic colors! If you would like to read all the rules and details (or if you would like to enter a paper crafting creation yourself) here is the link 👉  Color Dare #459  👈. As I usually do these days, I created a video showing the process I went through to create this card (mistakes and all 😂). In the video I also demonstrate various paper crafting techniques and give some tips along the way. Here is that video: I hope that you enjoyed the video and found it helpful. Remember this challenge is open until September 9, 2021, so you can join in on the fun! I look forward to seeing what you creat

Hi and welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! Thank you for stopping in and seeing what sort of fun we can get into today! If this is your first time here then you will probably want to know... I am not an affiliate of, nor sponsored by, any of the products I use in my video or blog. I keep this blog simply to share and connect with other nice people out in internet land! So don't worry... I'm not trying to sell you anything or suggest you buy anything... just join in for the pure fun of it! I am a big believer in trying to keep paper crafting affordable, fun, and using supplies you may already have in your stash. Today I wanted to share a video I posted on my YouTube channel showing a card being made by glitter poster paint I bought at the Dollar Tree! Yes... a card of six paints for only $1... that averages to only 17-cents per jar! So sit back and enjoy this video and then let me know what you think in the comments... As you may have seen in the video, I was a bit disappoi

Creating an Envelope Trip Journal to Go

Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! I am so pleased that you are taking the time to stop in for a visit today. Thank you! If you follow me blog or subscribe to my YouTube channel you may have seen my video where I did a brief walk through of a "Trip Journal to Go" (here is the link in case you want to go back and watch that one... Envelope Trip Journal to Go! ). Because of that video I had some requests to create a step by step video showing how to make your own trip journal to take along on your next trip! Here is that video... As I promised in the video, I will put some of the measurements I used to create mine below... 4 A2 envelopes 2 pieces of cardstock cut 5.75" square 2 pieces of patterned paper cut 5.63" square 4 pieces of patterned paper cut 2.75" x 5.75" 4 pieces of patterned paper cut 4.75" x 5.75" For the vellum pocket I cut my vellum to 6" x 4". The embossing folder I used was 4", so this allowed for 1" on ei

Playing With Alcohol Inks

Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! I create this blog in order to inspire, teach, and connect with other paper crafters. I am NOT sponsored by (nor an affiliate of) any of the products I used in today's blog entry. I'm not selling anything. This is all simply for fun and information. Have you ever played with alcohol inks? They are such a fun medium to create with. Today I made a very short video showing one of many ideas using alcohol inks. Here is that video... It is so fun to play with alcohol inks and I hope I inspired you to give it a try (if you've not done so already) or perhaps pull out your inks and get busy creating with them! Sometimes we put our art supplies away and forget to create with them, but it is always fun to rediscover them and create something new. I love creating backgrounds for cards this way. I tend to not add a lot to the front of the card because I don't want to distract from the beautiful colors and airiness of the inks. Here are some
