Doodlebug's Under the Sea 6x6 cards

With winter soon coming to an end, it was time to make some fun spring colored cards. I used Doodlebug's Under the Sea 6x6 paper pad and my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial to make 35 cards. The colors and designs in this paper collection are definitely more feminine, so it was fun to pull out lots of purple and pink cardstock. 


I decided to turn on the camera again while I disappeared the 6x6 paper pad. The video is sped up 10 times. The real time was around 7 1/2 hours; not including die cutting time.




I used 19 sheets of 12" x 12" solid cardstock. Here are all the leftover scraps from the paper pad. 


Here are the pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. Operation Write Home 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. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Doodlebug's Under the Sea 6x6 paper pad.

  4. I love watching these videos and song the end results. It makes me feel like I can cut into a 6x6 and make some decent cards. I should give it a try. Great cards, Kristie!

    1. Thank you, Tracey. Yes, you should try it. Just take it a few cards at a time and before you know it, the 6x6 is all gone. :)

  6. I saw the last card being made, I had small square scraps on my craft table, thought,"Hey, I can do that!" and I did. I like the tutorials, but I am still to the point of needing a template to figure out how to get the most out of each sheet. I have found a few "One Sheet Wonders" and am trying those out.
    You are an inspiration!

    1. Thank you, Gerri! I am a HUGE card sketch fan and have been for a long time. I'm so glad you were able to follow the final sketch. One Sheet Wonders are a perfect way to really utilize every last scrap of paper. I've tried them before with 12x12 paepr. I know there are lots of different ones out there to try.

  8. I love, love, LOVE your 6x6 videos! Not only do they inspire me to create, I love having them on in the background while I craft, organize, clean, and even nap:) I've never used a card sketch before, but you've intrigued me with the idea and now I'm gonna try... Cant wait to see more videos like these!

    1. Crystal, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad I can offer some inspiration for you. Sketches are so fun! You can follow them exactly or change them up to suit your card. I'm currently working on a new video, so keep an eye on my blog.

  9. I sit and relaxed and enjoyed every minute of your video. It is so inspiring !
    I defenitly will try this out and make disappear some of my paperpads.
    There are so litlle scraps left, that I think I will be able to throw them away.
    One question: Can you show how much scraps you're left with from the cardstock? Tia

    1. Thank you, Tia! I appreciate your kind words. :) I have never taken a picture of the leftover cardstock scraps before. The numbers of sheets I use are different with each paper pad. I also keep all my leftover cardstock scraps and use them for future cards. Or my kids use them for little projects.

  10. I loved your video so much I just had to watch it twice! I wrote down all the measurements and plan to make some cards like yours! First time to watch you making cards and I loved your finished creations. I liked how you added your own idea of little embellishments to give bling!
