Doodlebug's Cream & Sugar - 6x6 cards

It is so hard to resist buying Doodlebug Designs 6x6 paper pads. They make such cute stuff! So, I decided to use my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial with the Cream & Sugar collection. I love all the darling food images and cheerful colors. The paper pad also has a great mix of pattern and tone-on-tone papers, which is great when doing my tutorial. I made a total of 32 cards using one 6x6 paper pad.


I recorded my entire process of disappearing the 6x6 paper pad. The video is sped up 9 times since the full recording time was over 7 hours, not including any of my planning, prep, or die cut time. I have been asked several times if I record my 6x6 videos all in one day. And the answer is no. It usually takes me about 3-4 days. It just depends on how busy my life is that week. (While watching the videos, you may notice my shirt sleeves change a few times. 😁)


In addition to using the 6x6 paper pad, I also used 17 sheets of 12" x 12" solid colored cardstock. Here are all the leftover scraps.


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. 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's Cream & Sugar 6x6 paper pad.

    1. Thank you, Evelyn! I use a lot of my cards to send to friends and family. I donate cards to my church and also for silent auction baskets to different organizations.

  3. Dear Kristie,
    Thanks so much for all the time and effort you put into these videos. I used to watch them and think I just didn't have the time to do this kind of card marathon. However, when you posted the cards separately last time, it really encouraged me to give it a shot. I made a lot of cards for my friends, family, and students. Everyone is thrilled to get a handmade note of encouragement! Now I am ready to take on this next one! Thanks again for being an inspiration and blessing to me.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm glad I could provide some inspiration for you. The individual card videos were very popular and I do plan on doing more like that in future. I bet your friends and family were so blessed to receive a handmade card from you. Happy crafting to you!

  4. Hi Kristie,
    I'm new to watching your tutorials but I got hooked on the first one, which is the one you did in parts. I'm sort of new to this. I have been trying to be a card maker for many months now. To be honest it's very overwhelming when you attempting it by yourself. I don't have a local group or anything. But, you are very encouraging. The 4part series you did was so wonderful. The cards you did this time are simply adorable. Thanks

    1. Thank you for your kind comments, Linda! I really appreciate it! I've gotten such a wonderful response to the individual video series, that I definitely plan on doing it again. I am very fortunate to have a great group of crafty friends that get together once a month. But I do most of my crafting by myself or with my 7-year old daughter.
