Love From Lizi - August 2019 card kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit

Hello friends! Where is the year going? I can't believe I just made cards using Love From Lizi's August 2019 card kit. August, already? I know many kids will be heading back to school soon. My kids still have until the first week of September, so we still have lots of summertime left.
Unfortunately, the August kit is already SOLD OUT. It sold out in less than 10 hours after release. WOW! I guess I'm not the only person who just loves pink. This kit is full of lovely soft pinks and rose golds. The papers are absolutely stunning! There are still some Add Ons available, if anyone is interested in purchasing some parts of the kit. (Links are listed at the end of this post.)

Go HERE to see my unboxing video where I show everything that is included in the kit.


I made 10 cards using Love From Lizi's August 2019 Card Kit.


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



Most products used are from the August Card kit and Love From Lizi August Add Ons. 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 and some Mojo Monday sketches are the only ones that already provide measurements. For all 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 2019 Card Kit.

Queen & Company - Merry & Bright Ornament kit - 25 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! Since it's still July, I thought I'd do a second Christmas in July video. I used an older kit from Queen & Company called Merry & Bright Ornament. This kit was previously called Holiday Wishes, but they are basically the same kit. Some of the contents are slightly different, like toppings and quantity of foam/acetate pieces. But the stamp set, paper pad and dies are all the same.
You can also purchase refills of the paper pad and foam/acetate pieces.
I always enjoy the sentiment stamp sets included in Queen & Company kits. The sayings are perfect with fun fonts. If you are like me and don't color images very often, Queen & Company kits are a great choice.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial to make 25 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 6 1/2 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 5 sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" and 13 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors -
Kraft - unknown
Orange - unknown
Ballet - Bazzill
Berry Sensation - Bazzill
Atlantis - Bazzill
Caramel apple - Bazzill
Wax lips - Bazzill
Polar Ice - Darice
Pearlescent white - purchased on Amazon


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. Operation Write Home and some Mojo Monday 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. Merry & Bright Ornament kit.

Tonic Studios - Merry & Bright - 34 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! It's July, that means time for a Christmas in July video. I generally don't start working on the majority of my Christmas cards until fall, but's it's always fun to get a little jump ahead. Especially since I need around 300 Christmas cards every year. (I donate a lot of them.)
I used a new 6x6 from Tonic Studios called Merry & Bright. This is the first time I've used any of their paper collections. It includes 24 sheets of double sided pattern paper in 8 different designs. Most of the designs are very muted, with only 2 patterns on the busier side. This would be a great collection to add some fun colored images or ephemera. But I decided to stick with mostly sentiment stamps.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 34 cards.


Because it takes many hours to turn a 6x6 paper pad into cards, this video has been sped up 7 times. The real time recording was just over 5 1/2 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 14 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 4 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors - 
Awesome Aqua - DoubleMates
Berry - Coredinations


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. For sketches that don't include measurements, 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 Tonic Studios Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pad.
