Queen & Co Bug Jar Kit and Delightlful Dots Mat Stack - 31 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello, friends! After using Queen & Co.'s Love Jar kit last month, I decided it would be fun to use the add on Bug Jar kit. The add on kit could be used by itself, but to really make the most of it, I would highly suggest purchasing the Love Jar kit. The Bug Jar kit includes a stamp set with coordinating dies along with 11 exclusive toppings that are just perfect for shaker cards. The kit does not include a paper pad, so I chose to use Queen & Co.'s Delightful Dots 6x6 Mat Stack.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 31 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 around 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 17 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 7 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

CARDSTOCK COLORS
Hawaiian Blue - DoubleMates
Pink - Recollections
Orange - Coredinations
Red - unknown
Scattered Straw - Coredinations
Caramel Apple - Bazzill
Purple - unknown
Black - Recollections


Here are close up 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 Queen & Co. Delightful Dots 6x6 paper pad.

Love from Lizi August Card Kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit

Hello friends! I am so honored to be the guest designer for the Love from Lizi August Card Kit. Their kits are so beautiful and just packed full of crafty goodies. Go HERE to see my unboxing video where I show everything that is included in the kit.
The August kit is filled with lots of gold and silver foil accents, exclusive Love from Lizi stamp sets, stencil and Peel Offs. I've made 10 cards so far, but there are enough supplies included to make a lot of cards or other crafty projects. But if you just need more of the lovely paper and die cut punch outs, there are a few smaller kits you can add to your order. In addition to the August Card Kit, I also used the Super Shine Bumper Pack.


Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



Most products used are from the kit. I did include some additional cardstock, ink, dies, and a few other items from my craft stash.

Here are close up 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 the Love from Lizi August card kit and Super Shine Bumper Pack.

DCWV No Prob Llama - 33 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I have a new 6x6 paper pad tutorial to share. I'm using the No Prob Llama paper collection from DCWV. I actually bought the 6x6 as sort of a joke. When my daughter was younger, one of her favorite books was Is Your Mama a Llama? I would read it to her all the time and then she would ask me, "Mama, are you a llama?" After a while, I even started calling her my little llama. The pet names eventually stopped, but every once in awhile, I'll still call her my little llama. But now she'll roll her eyes at me. After all, she's all grown up at 8 years old.
My favorite part of the paper collection is all the magenta foil accents included. There are also a few sheets of cut aparts with fun sentiments and cute images. I used a couple different stamp sets in addition to the cut aparts. The Ink Road Stamps was very generous and provided me with several of their unique stamps sets. My favorite set is called Bloom Where You are Planted. It includes some lovely flowers and uplifting sentiments.

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 around 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 9 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 14 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.


Here are close up 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.
