Scrapping for Less Sept. Card Kit Blog Hop | 10 Cards 1 Kit


Happy Fall Ya’ll

Thankful, Grateful, Blessed! My favorite fall saying. 

Pumpkin Spice! My favorite fall flavor.
Shorter Days! My favorite fall time.
Soup is on! My favorite food to eat when it’s cool.
Sweaters and football! My favorite time of the year. 
Everything about fall is my favorite. What is yours? 
If it is all about crafting check out this fabulous and
fantastic fall kit Scrapping for Less has this month. 
Jump in and hop along for some great inspiration.


I am guest designing for Scrapping for Less using the September Flavor of the Month Card Kit. The theme is Happy Fall Y'all. 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 10 cards using the September kit. I still have plenty of leftovers to make many more cards. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. For all 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 Scrapping for Less September Flavor of the Month card kit.

Carta Bella Christmas - 35 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! I know Christmas is still a few months away, but it's never too early to make Christmas cards. Right? Especially when all the lovely new collections are already available. I always need a lot of Christmas cards every year. Many to donate and many to give to family and friends.
I decided to use the Christmas 6x6 paper pad from Carta Bella. It's a beautiful paper collection with traditional reds and greens, along with touches of woodgrain and black.
There are a couple sheets of lovely image/sentiment cut aparts included. I did use quite a few of them along with several Christmas stamp sets I already own. I've noticed many companies haven't released their new Christmas stamps yet. But I'm sure I'll be purchasing a couple new sets. Especially since I'll probably be making a few more Christmas card videos this year.

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

Cardstock colors - 
Black - Recollections
Evergreen - Coredinations
Scarlet - Coredinations
Gold - unknown
Kraft - unknown
Cream - 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 Carta Bella's Christmas 6x6 paper pad.
