Doodlebug Design's Milk & Cookies collection - One 6x6 paper pad into 32 cards

I just finished another Christmas 6x6 paper pad. It's so exciting to have more Christmas cards done and it isn't even November yet. I used the Milk & Cookies collection from Doodlebug Design. The designs are cute and fun with lots of cheerful bright colors. And I love the little bit of pink color throughout the collection. In addition to the 6x6 paper pad, I also include some of the Odds & Ends die cuts that coordinate with the paper collection. I've never used them before and thought it would be fun to try them out.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 32 cards.


I recorded my entire process of disappearing the 6x6 paper pad. The video is sped up 7 times since the full recording time was just over 4 1/2 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 18 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 6 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock. 


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 Design's Milk & Cookies 6x6 paper pad.

  1. You're amazing! All your Christmas cards are going to be finished before Thanksgiving at this rate. Such cute cards. Those cardboard extras are adorable--you might have to get another Cookies & Cream pad to use the rest of them. Do you have a method for cutting the quilt pieces or do you just run it through a lot of times with different papers? Just curious-it seems to take me a very long time to make the pieces.

    1. Whew, I sure have made a lot of cards lately. I think I may be almost done with Christmas cards. I do still want to make a bunch for the local nursing home residents though. And I did buy a second Milk & Cookies 6x6 since I knew I'd never use up all those Odds & Ends die cuts on only one paper pad. I have no secrets for a more efficient way to make the quilt cards using the tiny paper scraps. I usually cut out each piece separately. But if the pieces are small, you can tape them down and sometimes fit a couple papers at one time.
