Pink & Main April Subscription Box - 10+ cards 1 kit

Hello friends! I am guest designing for Pink & Main using their April Crafty Courtyard subscription box. The kit goes on sale March 25th and will start shipping April 15th. As with most monthly kits, there are a limited number available. 

Go HERE to see everything that's included in the kit.


The kit theme is Galaxy. The 6x6 paper pad is a beautiful collection with silver foil accents on every design. I just love the bright colors, especially since there's some pink.

I made 20 cards using the April subscription box by Pink & Main.


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



Most products used are from the April Pink & Main Subscription Box. I did include some additional card stock, 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. 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 April Subscription Box by Pink & Main.

Mojo Monday sketch #511 - Queen & Co.

Hello friends! It's been awhile since I've just posted a few cards with no video. I really wanted to play along with Mojo Monday's newest sketch. I love that Julee now includes measurements on her sketches. (Less work for me. Lol!)
I decided to mainly use Queen & Company products for both of my cards. I do enjoy their fun shaker kits. And I always pick up refills of the foam/acetate pieces so I can continue making more shakers.

Doodlebug Hoppy Easter - 37 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I was in the mood to turn another 6x6 paper pad into cards. This time I used Doodlebug Design's Hoppy Easter collection along with their new coordinating stamps and icon cardstock sticker sheet. The stamp set includes lots of adorable images and plenty of sweet sentiments. I don't color often, but the images aren't too detailed so even I can handle coloring them. Of course, I would purchase the stamps just for the sentiments. The paper collections always include plenty of cute papers and cut aparts, so the stamps really just compliment them.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 37 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 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 9 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 15 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors - 

Boysenberry - Darice
Light purple - unknown
Turquoise - unknown
Easter Grass - Bazzill
Juicy Pear - Bazzill
Circus Peanuts - Bazzill
Light pink - unknown
Lipgloss - American Crafts


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 Doodlebug Hoppy Easter 6x6 paper pad.
