How I Used an Entire 6x6 Pad of Paper

During a recent visit to Michael's I found a 6x6 pad of paper from American Crafts and over the weekend, I managed to use the entire pad. I made over 30 cards from the pad.

 Here's a photo of the pad. 24 sheets of 6x6 papers.

This is just some of the cards I was able to make from the papers.

I was inspired by a layout that Michelle Wooderson used in a recent post of her blog Mish Mash

I started by cutting all my papers into 4x6 pieces and then cut the 4x6 pieces into 
4x4, 4x3/4 and 4x1 1/4. I attached the 3/4 inch strip to the top of the 4x4 panels with the addition of a piece of paper doily. Then attached the 4x4 panel and a 4 1/4 strip to each card base. I was able to create 24 cards using this layout.

I added stamped die cuts and buttons and twine to finish the cards.

The die cuts and co-ordinating stamps are from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment used in the card about is from Hero Arts.

All that was left from the pad of paper were 6x2 inch strips so I cut them into 2x2 pieces and made more cards using this layout.

I'm so glad that I actually used this pad of paper instead of just adding it to my stash. And if you have a stash of paper maybe you will be inspired to use some of those pads in your stash. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day. Happy Stamping!

Sketch Challenge Card

Today's card is for The Craft's Meow October Sketch Challenge. I used the Butterfly Kisses set for my card and paired it with a variety of papers from Basic Grey's Two scoops and Kioshi collections. I also added a paper doily and a die cut butterfly from the AMuse Studio butterfly trio.

Here's the sketch.

And here is my card for the challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday. Happy Stamping!

It's been awhile . . .

Did you give up on me yet? I'm still making cards but obviously I'm not posting them on my blog. Well, I needed a baby card for a co-worker who had a healthy baby boy on Monday so I decided it was a good time to start posting again in case anyone was still visiting my blog.

My card uses some My Mind's Eye - Stella and Rose - Hattie 6x6 papers. I used the My Favorite Things Polka Dot Greetings stamp set and matching die to mount my little onesies on. The onesie stamp is from the Bit of Stardust set from There She Goes. I finished it off with some ribbon and a star shaped button.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a fabulous Fall. Happy Stamping!
