Here it is November 2020 and I am already looking towards 2021 in hopes it will be a better year. Granted, there are parts of this year that I appreciate... my hubby and I drove across the United States and were able to visit my parents before the virus shut everything down, we have stayed reasonably healthy throughout all of the pandemic, and we had toilet paper even when the stores didn't... but still, I want this year of political fighting and pandemic to be over. I want to hug my extended family and friends again. I want to stop feeling so anxious about EVERYTHING happening around me! I worry about those I love and the people around me probably more than I should. My husband says I shouldn't worry so much, there is nothing that w

When I'm not creating YouTube videos, cards, scrapbooks, or other paper projects I spend my free time (especially during this pandemic while stuck at home) watching Your Tube videos by other creators or playing Sims (I loved playing with dollhouses when I was a little girl... so I guess that is why I love playing Sims so much). If I am sitting alone watching YouTube videos I tend to watch (you guessed it) paper crafting videos! However, if I am watching YouTube with my hubby we watch videos showcasing travel, plant-based cooking, living the vegan lifestyle, or riding trains (trains... that is an entirely different vein of discussion worthy of a separate blog entry). One of the YouTube channels we subscribe to is Krocks in the Kitchen by

I'm part of a CTMH Twisted Sisters YouTube Hop this month. You can find a list of participants in my video description... so sit back, enjoy my quick little video! Here are some close-ups of the projects in the video (and the supplies I used) if you want to learn more... My "twist" was to use the Christmas themed  Merry Borders (D1980)  stamp set all year long! Of course, this stamp set does make a lovely Christmas card! This is an A2 sized card. Supplies included:  Kraft Paper , and Exclusive Inks in  Candy Apple ,  Evergreen ,  Julep , and  Toffee . The sequins are from the  Julep Loose Sequins  collection. But this stamp set can also be used for so many other projects, too! I cut this card out to be an A2 sized card, too. I

Do you ever see really pretty napkins at the store and say to yourself, "that would make lovely cardstock"! I do that often, so I thought I would try out something I had read about online... I made a super short video of the attempt and subsequent results below... What do you think? Have you tried this technique before? Do you have any suggestions? Here are a few shots of my results... I would be very interested in reading any comments or suggestions about this. Let me know in the comments. Happy Paper Crafting, Rebecca  Disclosure Page

Amazon Prime Day 2020 has come and gone and I thought it would be fun to share some of the paper crafting goodies I picked up at fantastic prices! First... you will want to watch this video because I talk about the things I bought, give some tips on using them, and provide a card making demonstration... Let's look at some of the cards and supplies I used in more detail. I will provide the links directly to the products so you can see what the current prices are. If you have any questions about any supplies not mentioned here be sure to leave me a message in the comments below. The first item I discussed in the video was the  Shuttle Art 120 Unique Colors Gel Pens  . I love how these pens move on the paper. Note: When using a new gel pen

Donation Cards Restyled

I'm going to start this blog with two thoughts:  1. I love creating with paper... all sorts of paper! But, as any paper crafter can tell you, paper can get a bit pricey. 2. Our household receives a lot of packs of "free" cards from charitable causes we have made donations to. These cards are often beautiful or cute, but I'm a card maker so I don't mail them "as is" because I custom create my own cards to mail. So... knowing these two things I decided to make this video showing what I do with all these "free" cards.  Here are a couple of close ups of the cards featured in the videos... We can call this one "Church in a Blizzard"... LOL The card base is made from a blue cardstock that I used
