Crafty Ratty takes a free-wheeling, you-can-do-it approach to crafts. If it can be done, Becky has probably tried it, and she wants to share her experiences with you. This show goes far beyond scrapbooking, knitting, and beading, with side trips into paper-making, hand-spinning and many other hyphenated crafts.

The Best Episodes Ranked Using User Listens

Updated by OwlTail 9 days ago

Warning: This podcast has few episodes.

This means there isn't enough episodes to provide the most popular episodes. Here's the rankings of the current episodes anyway, we recommend you to revisit when there's more episodes!

Rank #1: Ep. 3 – Getting Started in Scrapbooking for $50 or less

Podcast cover

You have the basics, you’ve made a couple of simple pages, but what’s next?

I hope you went shopping and spent your $25 budget on the essentials. If you did, I have no doubt that you have made at least one scrapbook page, and maybe more. If you haven’t had a chance to do either, then you can combine your shopping into one trip, and this week we are going to show you how to spend your next $25.

In my house, when trying to decide how expensive something is, we talk in terms of trips to the craft store. That’s because it’s unusual for me to get out of the door for less than $100. I admit, I do have a problem, but you’re going to do as I say, not as I do.

If you find out that you love scrapbooking and want to get on a first-name basis with the gals (or guys) at your local craft shop, welcome to the club! If you’re still getting your feet wet, then wading in the shallows is a great place to start. Just watch out for minnows. They like to nibble.

Rank #2: Ep. 2 – Getting Started in Scrapbooking for $25 or less – sample

Podcast cover

Now that you have your supplies, I show you how to make a scrapbook page that is simple but effective.

When I first started in scrapbooking, I had nothing but a scrapbook, a small pack of paper, a good pair of scissors and an archival pen. It wasn’t until later that I turned into a crafting pack rat (some would say hoarder, but we ignore them.) No matter what my craft room indicates, it’s not the amount of supplies that makes for a good page. It’s all about making good use of your supplies.

Not that there’s anything wrong with having lots of fun tools and supplies to play with. Still, even if you have a huge stash/hoard of crafting supplies, try challenging yourself to do something with just the basics.

Tune in next time when we talk about how to spend the next $25 in your basic scrapbook budget. I love spending money, especially when it’s not mine!

Rank #3: Ep. 1 – Getting Started in Scrapbooking for $25 or less

This is the very first episode of Crafty Ratty. In it, I talk about how to get started in scrapbooking for only $25.

With my garage converted to a craft studio, stuffed to the rafters with craft supplies of every kind, even I find it funny that I’m talking budget and crafts in the same podcast. However, I am far from normal and there are many reasons why you might want to do what I say, not what I do.

For one thing, maybe you (or your spouse) aren’t convinced that you will enjoy scrapbooking and so you don’t want to blow your budget on a bunch of stuff you may never use. The most common reason, of course, is that you just don’t have that much budget to blow, even if you are enthusiastic and ready to dive in. Finally, you may just want to do a single book for a special occasion: wedding, graduation, new puppy, whatever. You may not want to invest in a lot of expensive supplies for a one-time project. I get that.

There is a huge world of crafting supplies out there, and it can be tough to focus on the basics. That’s what this episode will try to do for you. Even if you are ready to dive in like a crazed Crafty Ratty, this will still give you a good starting point. You can go crazy later.
