Queen & Company - All Bundled Up kit (revisited) - 3 cards 1 kit

Hello friends! I was hoping to have time for another 6x6 video this week. But since I'm heading to Creativation for the week, it just didn't happen. I still wanted to post another video before leaving, so I decided to revisit another Queen & Company kit. (Can you tell I really like their kits?) Since there is currently snow on the ground here in Western Washington, I figured the All Bundled Up kit was perfect. The paper pad that comes with the kit is still one of my favorites.

Go HERE to see my video from last year where I made 31 cards using the All Bundled Up kit.

Unlike the last time I used this kit, I now own the coordinating Outline Dies. Queen & Company recently released outline dies for most of their previous kits. I love having both while creating cards.

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


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 Queen & Company's All Bundled Up kit.

Glaucoma Awareness card - featuring Queen & Co's Love Monster kit

It's time for my annual Glaucoma Awareness card. Did you know January is Glaucoma Awareness month? It's probably a disease many people don't think about very often. But did you know that over 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma? It's called the "sneak thief of sight" because there are no symptoms and once the vision is lost, it's gone for good. According to the World Health Organization, glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. While there is currently no cure, vision loss can be slowed or prevented with early detection.

I was diagnosed with glaucoma in my late 30's. I'm so grateful for medical advancements that made it possible to detect the disease in the early stages. And perhaps, in my lifetime, a cure will be found.

I share this with you as a reminder to get your eyes checked every year. It's a simple and pain-free test. And it just may save your sight.

For my card this year, I decided to include one of Queen & Company's adorable monsters from their Love Monster kit. I gave her 3 eyes, so she'll have a back up if she loses her vision.

Carta Bella - Snow Much Fun - 32 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I hope everyone is ready for my first 6x6 paper pad video of 2020. I decided to start off by using Carta Bella's Snow Much Fun collection. I donate cards every month to the residents at a local retirement home and this collection will be perfect for some wintry cards for January. I will write an uplifting message inside each card, so hopefully they will brighten someone's day.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 32 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 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.



I've had a few requests to see a picture of all cardstock I first pull before starting on the cards. I always pull out way more cardstock than I ever use. 


In addition to using the 6x6 paper pad, I also used 2 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 13 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors -  
Black tie - Bazzill
Aqua - Bazzill
Lei Flower - Coredinations
Light blue - unknown


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 Snow Much Fun 6x6 paper pad.

Love From Lizi - January 2020 card kit - 12 cards 1 kit

Hello friends! I was so excited to see the first Love From Lizi kit for 2020. It's a bright and cheerful cookie themed kit called Hey Sweetie! Such a perfect way to jump into the new year, especially since it's been super rainy here in Western Washington.

Go HERE to see my unboxing video where I show everything that is included in the kit.


I made 12 cards using Love From Lizi's January 2020 Card Kit.


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



Most products used are from the January 2020 card kit and Love From Lizi January Add Ons. I did include some additional cardstock, ink, 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 sketches that don't include measurements, I simply figure them 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 January 2020 Card Kit.
