I’m wrapping things up for the year over here a bit early this year, and I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Sadly, this is also a goodbye. Paper Crave started out as a side project for me way, way back in 2006, and over the years it’s provided an outlet for me to share my love for all things paper. It’s also allowed me to meet so, so many amazing and talented people in the stationery, paper goods, paper crafts, and creative communities. I’m incredibly thankful for the many opportunities that this blog has brought, and I’m incredibly grateful to you for taking time to check out what’s going on over here over the years. Thank you SO much for everything!

It’s been a very difficult decision for me to make, but all good things must come to an end, and it’s time to say “so long” to this wonderful blog. But I’m definitely not saying goodbye to my love for all things paper!

I’ll continue regularly pinning paper goods that catch my eye, as well as craft projects, lovely lettering, color and design inspiration, and much more over on Pinterest. And the Paper Crave site will remain for the foreseeable future as a catalog of the last 12+ years of paper cravings.

My main focus going forward will be on my freelance work and on k.becca, where I sell and license my digital cut files, patterns, and other creative work. I’d love it if you’d join me over there, so if you like paper crafts, digital goodies, and die cutting, please come on over and join the fun!

In addition to the k.becca website, you can also find me on Instagram, where I’m currently participating in a really fun, Christmas-themed illustration challenge, as well as over on YouTube, where I share craft tutorial videos.

Here’s a quick list of links where you can find me:

Thank you, again, for the last 12+ years. It’s been so much fun, and I can’t tell you how much I’ve appreciated all of your comments, emails, and just the time that you’ve taken to pop in here to see my latest paper cravings.

So long, Paper Crave!

Okay, so let’s talk about how freakin’ adorable these kitty cats from The Detroit Card Co. are. They’re the most irresistible Christmas cats that I’ve seen this holiday season … and possibly any holiday season. So, yeah, they’re pretty awesome. And they’re available in gift wrap, greeting card, and gift tag form, so you can have some Christmas cat coordination going on this holiday season.

If you’re looking for something a little less kitty cat and a little more classic, The Detroit Card Co. also has a lovely birds & holly design available in gift wrap, greeting card, and gift tag form. Here’s a peek:
