6x6 Blog Post Series - Final Post

Welcome to the tenth, and final, post of my 6x6 Series. I used one 6x6 paper pad to make cards and didn't stop until it was all gone. (Or at least reduced to a handful of scraps.) If you're new to my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial, check it out HERE

I combined the last 3 card designs in this final post so I could end the series at an even 10 posts. I used another Mojo Monday sketch, simply because I just love their sketches.

I made a total of 5 cards using this sketch and a variety of pattern papers.

Paper - Lily Bee Design
Stamp - Paper Smooches
Stitched square and circle die cuts - Lil Inker Designs
Scalloped circle die cut - Spellbinders
Stitched rectangle die cut - My Favorite Things
Bow die cut - Paper Smooches
Ink - Versafine
Glossy Accents

I didn't follow a sketch for this card since I used a My Favorite Things background die cut. I used the last of my long scraps to make this one card.

Snowdrifts cover up die cut - My Favorite Things
Fox stamp - Paper Smooches
Sentiment die cut - Reverse Confetti
Banner die cut - Reverse Confetti
Ink - Versafine and Memento
Crayola colored pencils
Pearl pen - Viva Decor
Sequins - from stash

With only small scraps left, I finished off the paper pad using an Operation Write Home sketch. I made 2 similar cards using this sketch.

Stamp - Reverse Confetti
Stitched scallop circles - My Favorite Things
Circle Die cuts - Lawn Fawn
Scalloped border die cut - My Favorite Things
Small Flower die cut - The Stamps of Life
Pearl pen - Viva Decor
Ink - Versafine
Wink of Stella glitter pen

Here are the few scraps I had left over.

And here's the full lot of 52 cards made using one 6x6 paper pad. Definitely a much higher number of cards than my usual amount, but that is due to using a single sided 36-sheet 6x6 paper pad.

I hope my 6x6 Series inspires you to create your own cards using a 6x6 paper pad.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

  1. Love these, Kristie! I always see a new die or stamp that I like when you do these!!

    1. Thank you, Tricia! I'm a die cut fan, in case you hadn't noticed. So sorry if I keep enabling you. :)

  2. Hi Kristie, great to drop by and see your gorgeous cards! I love the card with the fox--what a great way to use the Snowdrifts background die (now I think I must have it)! Are you donating your cards to a new organization now? I miss our OWH days.

    1. Thank you, Sherry! I miss OWH too. The people, the challenges, the sketches. I'm not making as many cards as when I did for OWH. So currently, I'm only donating cards to my church. I'm also trying to personally send more cards and lately, I've needed quite a few Sympathy and Get Well cards.

  3. Wow! Krsitie.. these are "Over The Top Awesome!!" love the paper pad you chose and all the fun sketches to make all these wonderful cards. Thanks so much for sharing all your talent with us. blessings ~ Pam

  5. I just found your blog. The 6x6 tutorial is amazing! I'm looking forward to watching all of them. Thanks for sharing!
