Pink & Main Pumpkin Spice - cards from 6x6 paper pad

I recently shared a picture on social media showing a variety of 6x6 paper pads and asked my followers which one I should use for my next video. The Pumpkin Spice collection from Pink & Main lead the votes. I guess others love fall as much as I do. 
This is the first time I have ever used paper from Pink & Main. The paper pads are 24 sheets, double-sided and have a nice weight. The designs are clean with a simple, graphic style. And a bonus, their papers are made in the USA.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 33 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 under 5 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 19 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 2 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 Pink & Main's Pumpkin Spice 6x6 paper pad.

  1. Wow--another video so soon! You are a card-making machine. While the ones featuring critters are my favorites, I also really like the "Many Thanks" with the unusual leaves--in both color combos. And the first one. Really, there is something special on each card that makes it great. I love the paper choice and how it was chosen, too. Fabulous job!

    1. Thank you! You are always so kind. I have been super busy making cards lately. In fact, I just finished recording another 6x6 video. I figured I'd try to get a bunch done before the holiday season is here.

  2. I quite like the cards you've created with this paper pad. I had a hard time deciding between "Many Thanks" and "Thinking of You", but the card sketches would translate nicely for many different occasions. Beautiful job Kristie ♥ I look forward to your videos (I check your blog at least once a week).

  3. Oh wow! How lucky are we! Another fabulous group of cards. The fall season sure lends itself to beautiful cards, doesn't it? You absolutely rise to the season. I know you said it's a favorite. I look forward to watching the video and hopefully making some cards soon. You sure help to inspire me. I made a set of fall cards not long ago and they sure have been put to good use when I needed cards, but had no time to sit down and make any. Having them in my stash has been fabulous. Thank you! :)

    1. Aw, thank you, Jeanne! I wish fall lasted a few months longer. I could make fall cards all the time. Especially since the cards usually work for either male or females. A paper collection like this one would be perfect for general cards. I always like to keep some cards on hand as well, because you never know when you'll need one. Have a beautiful day!

  5. Hi Kristie! I came over to admire your DT card for CIE and got lost in enjoying your MANY beautiful cards!! You are a master. I wish you'd conduct 6x6 workshops here and there (especially here!)! Hugs.

    1. Thank you, Sherry! You are always so kind. I've never actually taught a 6x6 workshop before. Not sure if anyone would really be that interested, plus it would be a long class.
