DCWV Spooky Halloween - 35 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I know it's technically still summertime, but I'm ready for fall weather. And since I still need a lot more Halloween cards to give to a local retirement home, I decided to use another Halloween paper pad. I prefer using the cuter designs and not to avoid the scary stuff. So I chose to use DCWV Spooky Halloween paper collection. Any papers that I felt were too spooky, I simply used the opposite side of the paper. About half of the papers have a pretty orange foil accent which I thought was a nice addition to the cards.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 35 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 just over 4 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 20 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 4 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors - 
Black - Recollections
Easter grass - Bazzill
Orange - unknown
Hydrangea - Coredinations


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 DCWV Spooky Halloween 6x6 paper pad.

Scrapping for Less August Card Kit Blog Hop | 10+ Cards 1 Kit


Now, who doesn't love furry little kitties and puppies? We have put together a sweet puppy and kitten kit for you this month. We hope you enjoy!! Thanks so much for continuing to support our kits...keep sharing in the Scrapping for Less: Show and Share group and on Instagram. We love to see your shares! Now, hop on with us and see what our fabulous Design Team and guest designers have to share with you! Make sure you check out our Flavor of the month page to purchase the kit and check out the A La Carte page for some related products! Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter this month!


I am the guest designer for Scrapping for Less using the August Flavor of the Month Card Kit. The theme is For the Love of Pets. There are 4 different mini collections. Each contains 6 papers, a stamp set, and a variety of embellishments and stickers. I love how well everything coordinates together. The stamps can easily be used with any of the mini collections.

I post a lot of 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorials and many people feel quite overwhelmed with the idea of using an entire 6x6 paper pad for card making. Trying out a monthly kit, could definitely make things easier. You could start by using just one of the mini collections since it only has 6 sheets of paper. And it's perfect since the stamps and embellishments have already been coordinated for you. Leaving you with more time to simply create.

I made a total of 12 cards using the For the Love of Pets kit. I still have plenty of leftovers to make many more cards. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.
