10 Fabulous Crafting Tips From 10 Fabulous Crafters!

Hi! Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca!  Today's blog entry is a super short one, but I had two goodies I want to share with you! The first is that I had so much fun being a part of a collaboration video with some very talented crafters. If you haven't seen it yet, here is the link... I learned all sort of tips from them that I am now using in my craft room. Do you already do any of these tips? Do you have any suggestions of your own that make crafting easier for you? Let me know in the comments below! Also... a life update for everyone who follows me... I am a grandmother again! Our sweet little grandson was born healthy and adorable this month and we are so proud of him! Thank you for all your support, encouragement and kind words. I appreciate you all!

For this page the blue piece is 6" x 9.25" and the green piece is 10" x 8". No matter what size you use, the key is to leave at least a one inch border of the base page visible around the outer edges... but any large coordinating sheets of paper will do. I chose to stitch the major components down with white thread, but I could have used

  Thank you for stopping into my blog Paper Crafting With Rebecca ! I appreciate you visiting and I hope you find inspiration and useful paper crafting tips and ideas along the way. I am not sponsored by, nor an affiliate of, any of the products you see in today's blog... I'm not trying to sell you anything... I'm simply sharing this information for fun and informational purposes only. It's been awhile since I entered a Color Dare so I thought I better get to it! Sometimes when I'm not sure what I want to create for the day I pop into a challenge or a dare (such as this one) to help get those creative ideas flowing. If you would like to enter the Color Dare (or see the rules I'm following) here is the link... Color Dare #450 Information I needed to choose three colors inspired by this picture, so I chose Raspberry, Lemon, and Carolina (all inks from Close To My Heart). Then I created a card base using white cardstock. The measurements are 6" x 8" score
