Cards in Envy - Love Me or Love My Pet

Hello friends! It's time for a new card challenge over at Cards in Envy. The theme is Love Me or Love My Pet. Create a love card or better yet, one featuring a pet.

I used some older Doodlebug papers and a darling pet stamp set by MFT for my card. One of my nephews loves dogs, so I'll be giving him this card for his upcoming birthday.

Love From Lizi Under the Sea mega pack - 66 cards from 1 kit

Hello friends! I was so excited for the opportunity to use another beautiful Love From Lizi mega pack. This is called Under the Sea. The mega packs are different from the regular monthly kits. They include A LOT of paper. There are 32 sheet of 8x8 pattern paper, 4 sheets of pearlescent card stock, 10 steel dies, and an alphanet stamp set. The designs are beautiful ocean themed in lovely purples, greens, and turquoise.

I made a total of 66 cards using Love From Lizi's Under the Sea mega pack.


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


Most products used are from the Love From Lizi Under the Sea mega pack. I did include some additional card stock, ink, dies, Love From Lizi Peel Offs and stamp set, and a few other items from my craft stash.

Most of the card stock is paper I've had in my craft room for a long time. Not all of the paper has the brand/color labeled on it. But here is a list of colors and brands I do have the information.

Heidi - Bazzill
Velvet - Bazzill
Berry Pretty - Bazzill
Boysenberry Delight - Bazzill
Klondike Blue - Darice
Aegean - Darice
Polar Ice - Coredinations
Mediterranean - Bazzill

 Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. Operation Write Home and the newer Mojo Monday 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. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using the Love From Lizi Under the Sea mega pack.

Queen & Company All Bundled Up kit - 31 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I have a new favorite kit from Queen & Company. The All Bundled Up kit. It is a winter themed shaker kit. The paper pad is so fun and I just love the winter colors with lots of pink and magenta. There are lots of darling dies included. Seriously, the bear and penguin are just the cutest.


Go HERE to see everything that's included in the kit. There are enough foam and acetate pieces included to make 18 shaker cards. But the dies work perfectly alone as well. I love the stitched detail on each of them.

In addition to the kit, I also picked up the bling and glitter paper add ons. They both compliment the paper collection beautifully and it's always fun to add a little extra sparkle to the cards.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial to make 31 cards.


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

Cardstock colors -
Navy Blue - Hobby Lobby
Fig Swirl - Bazzill
Sunrise - Coredinations
Deep Lagoon - Coredinations
Moonstance - Darice
Turquoise - unknown


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. Operation Write Home and some Mojo Monday 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. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Queen & Comapny All Bundled Up kit.
