Reverse Confetti's Paper Bliss - 33 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

I was so excited when Jen del Muro, owner of Reverse Confetti, asked me to do one of my 6x6 videos using their newest paper collection. It's called Paper Bliss and it's part of their May new releases that will be available on May 8th. They are celebrating their 5th Birthday. I have been a huge fan of Reverse Confetti products so it was an honor to get to use this fun paper collection.
The paper pad includes 24 single-sided sheets. The colors are bright and cheerful with lots of fun patterns. It is the perfect balance of masculine and feminine papers, so it's extremely versatile for any card themes.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 33 cards.


Because it takes many hours to use up a 6x6 paper pad, this video has been sped up 7 times. The real time recording was 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 21 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 5 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

I've received several requests to list the cardstock colors. I use a variety of different brands and usually don't know the name of the color. But I will list the colors I do have the info.

Dark blue cardstock is by Recollections in the value packs from Michaels.
The green cardstock is by Recollections. Not sure of the name though. It was single 12 x 12 sheets.
The pink cardstock is also by Recollections. Not sure of the name though. It was single 12 x 12 sheets.
The gray cardstock was from a value pack from either Michaels or Joanns.
The yellow cardstock is by Coredinations called Tiger Eye.


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. Every sketch used for this set of cards is by Reverse Confetti. I do not design card sketches, but I do figure out the measurements for A2 size cards. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Reverse Confetti Paper Bliss 6x6 paper pad.

  1. I just came across your blog a few days ago, i love the cards you make ! What are the measurements for an A2 card?

    1. An A2 size card base is 5.5 x 4.25 inches. That is one letter size 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock cut in half. Consequently, you get two card bases for every single letter sized (8.5 x 11 inch) piece of cardstock. Hope that helps. :-)

    2. Thanks! The sizes from cardstock are different here in Europe.

    3. Thank you, Jolanda and welcome! Yes, Karen is correct about the A2 card size. It's a standard size here in the United States. I know that's not very helpful with the card measurements I provide.

    1. Thank you, Cathy! I appreciate your kindness. Card sketches are always fun to use, even if you don't complete an entire 6x6 paper pad. As long as you are enjoying yourself, that's all that matters. :)

  10. Hi Kristie, I've been on a marathon of your Youtube videos. I was wondering what size Tonic Studios Guillotine cutter you use. You are so inspiring. I'm working up my nerve to give a 6x6 a try.
    Thank you!

    1. Hello, Donna! Thank you for watching my videos. I appreciate the support.
      I own the 6" x 12" Tonic guillotine trimmer with the attachable extension bar for cutting up to 12". I believe it's been discontinued. But, Tonic is releasing a very similar one shortly under Tim Holtz brand. It looks the same except for different colors. Hopefully the quality will be the same. :)
