Love From Lizi November card kit - Part Two

Hello friends! After sharing my 10 Cards 1 Kit video using Love From Lizi's November Card Kit, I received multiple requests to do a second video. I guess some people want to see me use up all the pattern paper, just like I do with my 6x6 videos. I do feel like the monthly kits are a bit different than simply using a 6x6 paper pad though. And Lizi really packs a lot of fun and unique items into her kits. Items I enjoy using and things that help push me outside my crafty comfort zone. Since I still have a love for pattern paper, I didn't want to waste any of the beautiful paper.

The November Card kit is SOLD OUT. But there is a mini kit being released on November 19th featuring many of the items in the kit, including the lovely 6x6 pattern paper. I will share a link when it is available.

I made an additional 15 cards using Love From Lizi's November 2018 Card Kit.


Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.


Most products used are from the November Card kit and Love From Lizi November Add Ons. I did include some additional cardstock, dies, and a few other items from my craft stash.

Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. For all sketches, I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. All of my cards are A2 size. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using the Love From Lizi November Card Kit.

Veterans Day card using Queen & Company Star shaker kit

Hello friends! Here in the United States, we are celebrating Veterans Day. It's a perfect reminder to thank a service member for their sacrifices to protect our freedoms. I will be forever grateful to all who have and are still serving our country. THANK YOU!!!

I decided to use Queen & Company's Stars Shaker kit to make a thank you card to give to a local veteran. The paper is an older patriotic Doodlebug collection called Stars & Stripes. 

I recorded the making of the card to show how easy it is to use the Queen & Company shakers. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.

Love From Lizi Wood Grain Bumper Pack - 10 Cards 1 Kit

Hello friends! I'm still on a short break from making holiday cards. But after this, I think it's time to finish up all the Christmas cards I will need for the year. I used Love From Lizi's Wood Grain Bumper Pack. It includes lots and lots of paper, vellum, die cuts, alphabet stickers, a sheet of Peel Offs, and tons of square foam dimensional adhesive. There's plenty of lovely wood grain pattern paper to make cards for a long time. And the colors are perfect for masculine or feminine cards.

I made 10 cards using Love From Lizi's Wood Grain Bumper Pack.


Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



Most products used are from the Wood Grain Bumper Pack. I did include some additional cardstock, dies, and a few other items from my craft stash.

Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. Operation Write Home sketches are the only ones that already provide measurements. For all the other sketches, I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. All of my cards are A2 size.

Cards in Envy - Fire or Rain!

Hello friends! It's time for a new card challenge over at Cards in Envy. The theme is Fire or Rain! Create a card featuring either fire or rain OR a card using fire or rain colors.

It's been awhile since I colored the images from Lawn Fawn's Out of This World stamp set. I thought the little rocket with the fire exhaust would be perfect for the challenge. And it's always fun to create a space scene using Brusho powder.

Pink & Main Sunrise - 33 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I decided to take a short break from holiday and seasonal cards to use Pink & Main's Sunrise 6x6 paper pad. A couple months ago, I used their Sunset collection which is very similar except in blues, greens and purples. You can see that video HERE.

It was actually the Sunrise collection I first fell in love with since the colors are so beautiful. Especially all the pinks!

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 33 cards.


Because it takes many hours to use up a 6x6 paper pad, this video has been sped up 7 times. The real time recording was around 4 1/2 hours, not including any of my planning, prep, or die cutting time. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



In addition to using the 6x6 paper pad, I also used 2 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 17 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors - 

Love Potion - Darice
Cherry Tomato - Darice
Cherry Tomate - Coredinations
Banana - AC Cardstock
Orange - unknown
White Pearlescent paper - unknown


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. All of my cards are A2 size. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Pink & Main's Sunrise 6x6 paper pad.
