Carta Bella's Christmas Market - 31 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I know I've already posted quite a few Christmas videos. And I will be switching to general winter cards soon. But I still need more Christmas cards. I aim for around 300 cards every year. About half for donation and the rest to personally send out. I used Carta Bella's Christmas Market collection next. I decided not to purchase the ephemera pack even though it's really lovely. Instead, I used several sentiment stamp sets. I really enjoyed the traditional colors in this paper pad with just a touch of black and gray. The designs have more of a vintage look to them.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 31 cards.


Because it takes many hours to turn a 6x6 paper pad into cards, this video has been sped up 6 times. The real time recording was just over 5 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 7 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 7 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors -  
Bazzill - Avocado
Bazzill - Glass Slipper
Coredinations - Sandable Scarlet
Recollections - Black

Specialty Cardstock by Tonic Studios
Spring Silver - Mirror Card
Scarlet Organza - Mirror Card
Ivory Sheen - Pearlescent Card


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. For sketches that don't include measurements, I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. I also included some sketches by Queen & Company that were designed to work with their Foundation die sets. 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 Carta Bella's Christmas Market 6x6 paper pad.

Bella Blvd's Santa Squad - 30 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I love Bella Blvd's paper collections and was so happy to see they have started making 6x6 paper pads. Of course I just had to use one with my 6x6 tutorial. I decided to start with their new Christmas release, Santa Squad.
Besides the fact this paper collection is adorable, I also like the mix of tone on tone or muted designs with the busies pattern papers. It helps to have a nice balance for making cards.
For sentiments, I chose a few different stamps sets to use. I wasn't going to purchase any new Christmas stamp sets this year, but I was weak and did buy just a few more. Lol!

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 30 cards.


Because it takes many hours to turn a 6x6 paper pad into cards, this video has been sped up 6 times. The real time recording was around 6 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 5 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 13 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors -  
Bazzill - Berry Sensation
Bazzill - Wax Lips
Coredinations - Fern

Specialty Cardstock by Tonic Studios
Frosted Silver - Mirror Card
Scarlet Organza - Mirror Card
Lime Light - Pearlescent Card
