Queen & Co. Happy Harvest Fall kit - 29 cards from 1 kit

Hello friends! I have impatiently been waiting for the Queen & Company Happy Harvest Fall kit to be released. It's finally here!!! And it is definitely worth the wait. Of course, I am a huge fan of making autumn cards. This kit is a shaker kit and there are enough foam pieces to makes a lot of shaker cards. Queen & Company's shaker cards are so easy to make.

Since there is a 6x6 paper pad included in the kit, I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial to make 29 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 5 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. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Queen & Co. Happy Harvest Fall kit.

Donation cards and prep - Pink and Main Wreath

Hello friends! I took last weekend off from videos so I could focus on some donation cards I needed to finish.

I started with writing messages inside all the Halloween cards I will be giving to residents at a local retirement home. Here are a few pictures showing my process of getting the cards ready.

I gather all the Halloween cards I've made over the past few months.


Then I stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card and include a handwritten message.


Next I stamp the back of the cards.


I add a sentiment to the front of the envelopes.


Then I seal the envelopes with some fun washi tape.


Now I can drop off the cards to a local retirement home. 😊

I also make cards for a small charity near my house. They have a need for Thank You and Thinking of You cards. For November, they requested 30 Thankful for You cards to give to all their awesome volunteers. 

For many of the cards, I used an assortment of autumn goodies from my craft room.


For the last set of cards, I decided to use Pink and Main's wreath and fall wreath decor dies. It was fun assembling the autumn wreaths. Since the charity mails most of the cards, I make sure to keep them nice and flat.
