Doodlebug BooVille - 34 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello, friends! I thought I'd get an early start on some Halloween cards for the year. Normally, I only need a handful of cards for my nieces and nephews. But now that I'm giving cards to a local retirement home, I'll need A LOT more. During the holidays, I give enough cards for every resident. That's around 90 - 100 cards. I don't care for the scary side of Halloween. So I'm making cute cards instead using Doodlebug Design's BooVille collection. This is from their 2017 release. 

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 34 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 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 21 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 2 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors - 
Black - Recollections
Meadow green - Coredinations
Orange - Coredinations
Purple - unknown


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 Doodlebug Design's BooVille 6x6 paper pad.

  1. Another cute set of cards Kristie. I love Halloween paper but only use it on layouts - probably the reason I have a collection of it now ;).
    I really like the Mojo Monday sketch 361, but it's hard to truly pick a favorite as they are all so cute.

    1. Thank you, NannaT! I usually buy the Halloween collections from Doodlebug every year. But this is the first time I actually finished off a Halloween 6x6. :)

  2. Oh golly, these are so fun and adorable, Kristie! Really like that you used the Lawn Fawn stamp set. When I went to pull out this paper pad (yay, I already own it, but have used a bit of it), I found I have several DB Halloween pads. Clearly I love them, but haven't had the chance to use them. LOL Can't wait to watch you in action putting these cute cards together. You have used some fun sketches. :)

    1. Thank you, Jeanne! Yay for already owning this cute paper collection. I seem to buy the Halloween DB paper pads every year. But this is the first one I actually finished completely. Now I won't feel bad about buying the new one when it's released. :)

  4. Hi Kristie, I love your videos and cards! I really like how you use mats to separate the layers. I do this when I scrapbook so love the look on cards. I have a question on your sketch measurements. Are the measurements shown for the pattern paper or the mats?

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Sue! I really appreciate it. I have always been a huge fan of including matted layers.
      The measurements listed are for the pattern paper. Then I usually add 1/8" for the matted layers. I list them that way because not everyone likes to use layers on their cards. :)
